September 8th – Are You Expecting?

Those who walk in faith have expectations beyond the natural. Their mind is not limited to what is common, for those things common are in the control of He who is uncommon. The created heart knows of the existence of He who is above existence, in all ages reaching for what is unseen. You have experienced My Spirit within, children receiving only what the Father gives. Beyond life, it is He who brings life within you. Why then do you expect only the natural? Why do you pray for what needs no faith? For when it comes to be, then it is easily explained out of My hand. To ask for the common gives no glory to your faith, and no glory to He who gives. Seek a greater prayer of the Kingdom and without self, that it would bring glory, and an earnest approach in faith. You do not ask, for your faith is small, but in the asking and in the receiving, growth and glory to My Name. You fear for lack of faith. Weaker is the faith if unanswered, and thus hides the Godly asking. Search your heart for an uncommon desire, one of heaven’s will for man. Pray with the expectation and look closely to receive. Search My heart, that you would know yours, and the petition to My throne would be not as the common man prays, but that of the faithful. In this you shall see My hand, and thus begins the more powerful journey, common to those who know My power, uncommon to those who know not their God.

Matt 21:21-22 (ESV) – And Jesus answered them, “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen.And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”

Bottom Line: A.W. Tozer wrote, “What comes into our mind when we think of God is the most important thing about us.” Why would he make such a statement? What prayer do you have that you think God can’t handle, so you just don’t ask? We are comfortable, so our prayers are generally, “thank-yous” and “bless-mes”. We rarely find ourselves asking for the extraordinary. We are happy with expecting little, and receiving what we expect. God wants more from the faith we profess in His name. Seek, pray and expect the unexpected!
