Proverbs 23:18 for surely there is a future hope; and your expectation shall not be cut off.
Mark 9:23 says everything is possible to them that believe. Belief is a
very strong force. With your belief, you can attract anything. The
difference between faith and fear is that faith is a strong belief that
something positive will happen whilst fear is a strong belief that
something negative will happen. When you entertain fear, you are
indirectly pulling the negative results towards yourself. This is why
fear is bad. Fearful people always proof themselves right; their
greatest fear always comes to pass.
There is no one presently
alive who has no expectations. You are either expecting something good
in life or the opposite. Fear is a negative expectation and faith is
positive expectation. This is why the righteous needs to stop fear in
its track because whatever they fear, they indirectly expect and the
bible assures us that their expectations shall not be cut off. Despite
all the measures God put in place to protect Job, he still managed to
put himself into trouble because of his fears. Job himself said the
thing I greatly feared has come upon me, Job 3:25. Jonathan on the other
hand expected victory and he got it. Jonathan and his armourbearer
believed that nothing restraints the Lord from saving by many or by few,
1 Samuel 14:4-16. The two went into the camp of the Philistine
expecting victory and the bible records that there was a trembling in
the camp, in the field, and among all the people. The garrison and the
raiders also trembled; and the earth quaked, so that it was a very great
trembling. Peter and John asked the lame man at the beautiful to look
at them, Acts 3:1-8. This man did not just look at them, the bible
records that he looked at them expecting to receive something from them.
He looked at them with a positive expectation, guess what? His
expectation was not cut off. He left that scene walking on his two legs.
What you expect is what you will get. When David faced Goliath, what do
you think He expected? I can assure you he was not expecting defeat, 1
Samuel 17:26- 51. From his confession we can deduce that he was
expecting to severe the head of Goliath from his body despite the fact
that he did not have a sword on him. At the end he severed the head of
Goliath from his body with Goliath's sword.Ignore the resources at your
disposal and begin to expect things to walk in your favor. Begin to
expect good things to come your way in life. Remember your expectation
will not be cut off. With your expectation you can make your dreams
become a reality.
ACTION POINT: Begin to expect good things to happen to this year.
