Pray and Expect the Unexpected

“in your prayers, above everything else, beware of limiting God, not only through unbelief but also by thinking you know exactly what He can do. Learn to expect the unexpected, beyond all that you ask or think. Each time you intercede through prayer, first be quiet and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do, how He delights in Christ His Son, and of your place in Him. Then expect great things.”

– Andrew Murray

The other day a friend posted the above  Andrew Murray quote on social media and it really stirred me. When stirred, I tend write and search scriptures as I process. So welcome to my disjointed processing.

Lord, do I think and pray like you are a limited God or do I expect You to work in unexpected ways? Do I think I know exactly what you can and should do or operate in unbelief?
