What Are You Expecting? Every day we wake, there are things that oppose the Word of God, and because we are used to them, they go unchallenged. It is only when something feels like it is attacking, that we feel like we are in a battle. But the truth is, whatever is challenging the Word of God in your life, needs to be confronted by faith. For example: throughout the day you may have feelings of anxiousness, fear, worry, stress, anger, etc.… When those feelings come they must be cast down, (11 Corinthians 10:5) because they are exalting themselves above the Word of God. "I will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed upon me" (Isaiah 26:3). When something is robbing you of your peace, it's exalting itself above God's minimum standard of living for you. But we accept it because [we don't feel like it is challenging the Word of God] it's just "Life "we say, "so those things are just going to happen.” WRONG! It is not the life that the Word proclaims we are entitled to! "I have come that you might have life, and have it more abundantly!" (John 10:10). We are the children of the most High God, and trials can come. However, "Greater is He that is in us, then he is in the world!"(1 John 4:4). Is it because we are lazy that we accept things that are not from God? Is it because we don't give it much thought? Or is it because we are not governed by the Word? We haven't renewed our minds to the Truths of His Word. Somehow we think that the Word should only be used when the great battles of our health or finances are challenged. But those are only two things that Satan is attacking us on. What about the rest? We must understand that the Word is our minimum standard of acceptance. Then we will not let the flesh in any area, have its way in our lives. We must be diligent in interpreting all that is in the flesh, through the eyes of His Word to recognize on every front where we are being stripped away from His blessings. In life sometimes we grow so comfortable in the flesh, that we lose sight of who WE are in Christ! You are sons and daughters of the Most High God! Your world is not found in this natural one, but is found in the truth of His Word. It is found in the Spirit, it is found in the Great Eternities! "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of his mouth!" (Luke 4:4) Do you live, breathe, and exist on the Words that proceed out of His mouth? This much is certain, He has already released His blessing, His covenant and His mindset upon you through His Word. It is up to YOU! To Accept nothing less… It is up to You! To Expect nothing less… Hallelujah unto Him that sits on the throne!
