If you have to wonder why you’ve yet to reach the next phase of your life, it’s probably because you’ve yet your raise your expectancy level. Baby, at this point in your life you should be looking pass hoping and looking forward to expecting. When you fill out a job application, you hope for a call back but then when you get the interview your mind should then go from hoping for the job to now expecting it. When you pray and get up, you should do so with expectancy that what you’ve asked for will happen. Now, I’m speaking in terms of blessings. Aren’t you tired of being tangled up in that mess you’re in? Aren’t you sick of being sick and burn out of being broke? Then when will you expect things to change? When will you expect things to be different?
Please don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with hoping because Romans 5:5 says, “And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us,” but don’t just hope alone. When you pray, you hope God hears you, right? Then what? Then, if you are like me, you expect Him to come and see about you which simply mean you cannot have hope without expectancy. All I am trying to get you to understand is this … stop quitting at hope when there is expectancy there too. Expect some things to happen and they will. If you are hoping for a check to come, it will but when? Expect it. If a pregnant woman had to go on hope to deliver her baby, imagine how that would turn out; that’s why the doctors give a due date of when she can expect to deliver. At some point you’ve got to start expecting some things. You’ve got to start expecting your breakthrough even before it comes. Expect your spouse before he or she shows up. Expect your financial deliverance before it happens. Expect your healing before surgery. Expect your promotion even before the interview. Expect the car before the loan is approved. Expect the house before the closing. Expect the blessing before the shout. Baby, you can even expect your deliverance before your storm is over! All you have to do is raise your expectancy level. Psalm 62:5 says, “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.” God is your expectation. Expect and then get! Don’t stop hoping but with hoping expect. Hope for your miracle, hope for your blessings, hope for your deliverance and then expect to receive it! You are worthy of all the things that God has promised but you have to expect to get them! What are you hoping for and when will you raise your level of hope to expectancy to get them?
