This is Going to be a GOOD DAY!!
Whatever we are expecting from God, is usually what we receive from Him. We are only limited by our expectations! God can do anything! What can YOU BELIEVE HIM FOR? Our expectations set the boundaries for our lives. Jesus said, “According to your faith it will be done to you” (Matt. 9:29). Another translation says, “you shall have what your faith expects.”
Some people are expecting the worst. They are always expecting something bad to happen! They go around with the “poor-old-me mentality,” they are always negative, always depressed. They say things like, “God, why don’t You do something about what I’m going through?” “This is just not fair!” But, they are receiving exactly what their faith is expecting.
Other people truly feel so overwhelmed by all their problems, they have a hard time believing that anything good could happen to them. You hear them saying things like, “Oh, I’ve got so many problems. My marriage is not good. My children just won’t do right. I hate my job. My business is not doing good. My health is going downhill. How can I live with enthusiasm? How do you expect me to get up and say this is going to be a good day, when I have this big mess in my life?”
That’s what faith in God is all about! You have to start believing that good things are coming your way! You have to believe that something good is going to happen to you!
What are you expecting in your life? The apostle Paul said, “Set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things)” (Colossians 3:2 AMP). The writer of the books of Hebrews said, Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see ( Hebrews 11:1 NIV).
Surrender and allow God to have control, even though you may be facing challenges in your life! Today could be the day when things change! Today could be the day that your financial problems are resolved! Today could be the day that broken relationships are restored! Today could be the day sick and hurting people are healed! We must believe in miracles, and know that even if we can’t always see them with our human eyes, God is performing them! And give Him thanks and praise for what He is doing!
Start reprogramming your mind right now! Start believing that things are going to change for the better, not because you deserve it, but simply because God loves you! If you believe something good is going to happen, then your faith will begin moving you toward good things!
