Our expectations set the limits for our life. Too many people are not expecting the right things. They are not expecting to rise any higher. They don’t expect to get good breaks. They go through the day expecting to get the short end of the stick. They don’t realize their own wrong thinking is keeping them in mediocrity.
God meets us at the level of our expectations. If we expect little, we’re going to receive little. If we don’t expect anything to get better, it probably won’t get any better. We need to pay attention to what we are expecting. If we will learn to raise our level of expectancy and start expecting more favor, more good breaks, then we’ll see God do greater things.
Every morning when we get out of bed, we should say “Something good is going to happen to me today.” We have to set the tone for the day right at the very beginning. Then all through the day, we should have an attitude of expectancy.
Like a little child that’s about to open up a present, be on the look out thinking “What’s God going to do today?” Instead of dragging around thinking “Nothing good ever happens to me”, start expecting to be at the right place at the right time. Start expecting to get good breaks. Expect God’s favor. Your expectation is your faith at work.
When you expect to get good breaks, when you expect people to like you, when you expect to have a great year, you are releasing your faith and that’s what allows God to bring it to pass.
Our expectation works in both directions. If you get up in the morning expecting to have a lousy day, expecting people to be unfriendly, expecting not to get any breaks, then you’re going to draw that in. Your faith is working but you’re just using it in the wrong direction. You’re expecting the wrong things. You need to change your expectations. Throughout the day, keep telling yourself that you are expecting to have great things happen to you.
It’s easy to expect the worst but if you can switch over into faith and start expecting to excel and accomplish your dreams then you will draw out God’s blessings and favor.
Some people have had a negative mindset so long they don’t even realize they are doing this. They expect the worst and they usually get it. They expect people to be unfriendly and they usually are.
You may have had a lot of disappointments in the past but don’t fall into that trap of staying in a negative frame of mind. Instead of expecting more of the same, start expecting God to turn it around. Don’t expect to barely get by. Start expecting to excel. Don’t expect to be overcome. Start expecting to be the overcomer.
You may not always feel like it but when you wake up in the morning, you need to remind yourself you are more than a conqueror and that God has great things in store. You should go out excited about the day expecting things to change in your favor.
