#1 – I cannot expect to win arguments with those who don’t want to settle the argument, they just want to fight for the sake of fighting. (II Timothy 2:23)
#2 – I cannot expect people to read my mind. (I Corinthians 14:8)
#3 – I cannot possibly expect to have a complete and detailed plan from God that tells me exactly what His plans are for the next 20 years. (Psalm 119:105) – He doesn’t promise to let us see years in advance, but He does promise to show us our next step!
#4 – I cannot expect to be a follower of Jesus and keep everyone around me happy at the same time. (Proverbs 29:25)
#5 – I cannot expect to stay the same and see progress (Isaiah 43:18-19)
#6 – I cannot expect to please God without taking steps of faith (Hebrews 11:6)
#7 – I cannot expect to hear God’s voice if I am always running at an unsustainable pace! (Psalm 46:10)

I can plod. I can persevere in any definite pursuit. To this I owe everything.
