Topic:
Disappoint your expectation



Memory Verse:
And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. - Luke 15:19-20 KJV



Message


The prodigal son was not expecting forgiveness. He was not expecting that there was any inheritance still left for him in his father’s house. After all he had collected his own portion and gone and wasted it. He expected to be treated as a slave and not a son. He expected that the father would treat him badly because he had been a bad boy. He did not expect a welcome talk less of a generous welcome and much more a party. He had all those negative expectations but thankfully God disappointed those expectations.
God knows how to disappoint ours and other people’s negative expectations for us. You may not feel you deserve God's kindness but God still shows you kindness. His love and goodness towards you does not depend on if you are good. He is just a good God and can only do good. He does not wait for you to be good before showering you with his goodness. Aren't you thankful that even when you are not at your best and expect that you do not deserve it God is still good to you
*Additional reading: Ephesians 3:20; Jude 1:24*



Prayer
Surely the love and goodness of God pursues and possesses me all the days of my life
