From Expectation to Manifestation

Mark 11:23, Prov. 11:23 (NKJV)
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. *The desire of the righteous is only good, but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.


Author PhotoOne of the most profound statements of our Lord Jesus is His promise that when we believe and do not doubt, we shall have whatsoever we say. He didn't say it was possible to have some things we say. He said it was possible to have whatsoever things we declare. If this is true, why is it that we do not all already have our desired futures? How come some believers still live in lack and constant anxiety?

Jesus, in our first text above, is bringing to the awareness of the church the power and the place of expectation in the manifestation of our declarations in our lives. 'Expectation' means to believe that something is going to happen or is about to happen. Most times, we make decrees in the name of Jesus without really expecting anything to happen miraculously; instead we go about looking for a way to help God bring that decree to pass. However, that is a sign of doubt and nothing hinders the believer as much as doubt. James 1:6&7 say, But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

It is clear from scripture that we should not waver when we are believing for anything. Instead, we should allow our hearts to well up with expectation and joyful hope, knowing that those thing which we command must surely come to pass because, as it is written in Proverbs 23:18, the expectation of the righteous will not be cut short.

PRAYER FOCUS:
Father, I thank You that because my expectations are never cut short, I am abounding unto good works. All that I do is productive and the fruits of my barn shall prosper. Amen.
