Expect Great Things
Is God doing great things today? Should we expect more from God than what Christians expect from Him? I’m not sure what was the context of his quote, but the famous British Baptist missionary to India, William Carey, said, “Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God.” I don’t know what Carey meant by “great things,” but people often quote Carey in this instance like his quote was some type of equivalent to scripture. The idea or thought here seems to be, if you aren’t expecting “great things” and you aren’t attempting “great things” then you are disobedient to God. If great things are just obedience to scripture, then those applications of the Word of God are great enough. God is doing great enough things. He never stops doing them. People very often so much want to report that they saw something of a supernatural nature that they start seeking these types of events. God wants you to enjoy and thank Him for the great things that He already does on an every day basis.
