Our expectations often determine our realities! Expectations have the potential to limit or increase your blessing! We usually get what we expect! In Matthew 9:29, Jesus says: “According to your faith will it be done to you.” In other words if you expect things to be bad, then they will most likely be bad, but if you expect things to be good, then they will most likely turn out for good!
If you see the glass half empty, then you will always be focusing on what you don’t have and you will probably never have anything of substance. If you see the glass half full, then you have learned to focus on the blessings in hand and you will probably see your life travel in the direction of more and greater blessing.
This does not mean that you don’t ever have any problems or challenges. It just means that you have learned to look at them differently than the majority of the world. God loves you and He has an amazing plan for your life and He has promised that He will use even the bad for good in the lives of those who love Him and who live according to His calling to fulfill His purpose!
If your expectations are messed up and in the wrong place, then change them up. Start by taking some time to pray and ask for God’s help. Next, spend some time letting the positive message of God’s Word to move in positive way through your life. And finally challenge yourself every time you find the negative and low expectations creeping in!
You can do this – grow your expectations and Give God Glory!
