"It shall be done to you according to your faith."
Our expectations hold tremendous power and influence in our lives. We don't always get what we deserve in life, but we do get what we expect. We only get what we believe. Sadly, this same principle works as strongly in the negative sense as it does in the positive.
Many people tend to expect the worst. They expect defeat and failure is what they'll receive. They live in a mediocrity world. Sadly, what they expect, they've come to believe.
Yet you can believe in good things just as easily as you can expect the worse. It is possible to believe more too, to see yourself performing at higher levels in every area of your life. The key is to expect good things from God. When you are inundated with tough times, don't expect to stay there. Expect to get out with God's love.
A friend asked me the other day, "How do you stay so positive? Things don't bother you around here like they do others."
I replied, "That's because I have blind faith. It doesn't hinder upon earthly expectations. I know when I get in a bind, God will get me out. He always makes a negative situation positive in the end. He has shown me this repeatedly no matter how dire the situation is."
Low expectations will destroy every possible gain in your life. Instead, pray for wisdom and peace. Ask God to change your expectations. Quit expecting to fail, begin realizing you will succeed. Even if the bottom falls out pray, "God I know that You are going to use this for me for my good. I believe that you're going to turn this thing positive in the end."
This type of agreement with God will focuses on the possibilities for you. Your faith will help you overcome your obstacles and allow you to reach new levels of victory. It is complexly up to you. It depends on your outlook. Are you going to focus on your problems, or will you focus on the possibilities with God?
