Raise Your Expectations
October 6, 2015, 1:23 PM

Far too often we settle for far less in our lives than what God wants for our lives.

Jeremiah 32:27 says:

“Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh:  Is there any thing too hard for me?”

Most of us, if asked that question would say that we believe there is nothing that God cannot do.  Yet in our day to day lives we begin to qualify our belief and lower our expectations of what God can or will do.

It is one thing to say we believe in a miracle God did a couple thousand years ago in the Bible, but it is completely different to believe that God could do miracles today, right?

We must remember that the God we serve is the same yesterday, today and forever.  He never changes.  His love never changes, His power never changes and the victory over sin, death and the hell never changes.  Nor does his power to do miracles in our lives.  

Yes we must understand that His will may be different than what ours is.  But when we pray we must believe that He can and will until he does not.  Too many times we don’t ask God to do a miracle because either we believe he cannot or we believe he will not.  Far to often, even when we do go to Him in prayer we ask far to generally and generically because we are afraid He cannot or will not come through.  

God is able.  God is love.  God is able to do abundantly above what we can even think of (Ephesians 3:20).   He delights in giving us the desires of our hearts (Psalm 37:4).  And we often have not because we ask (Matthew 7:7).

Yes God sometimes says no.  He knows what we need before we do better than we do.  But that does not mean we should learn not to ask or learn to lower our expectations.

Do you sense that there is far more through your life that what you have been experiencing?  Don’t lower your expectations.  Ask God to do great and mighty things and then be prepared to act on faith as He reveals His will to you.

God is God!  Raise Your Expectations!

Jeremiah 33:3

“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things , which thou knowest not.”
