You can still achieve your dream life… Then Jesus answered and said to her, ‘O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.’ And her daughter was healed from that very hour. - Matthew 15:28 • You cannot expect God to do the impossible until you dare to step out of your comfort and security • If you keep doing what you have always done, you will keep getting what you have always got
ake no small plans when you serve a great God. This woman was not ashamed to ask big, although she was a Samaritan and did not deserve to be given the beneﬁts of Israel. Her desire to see her daughter healed by far outweighed the rejection, humiliation, shame and embarrassment she experienced. She kept doubt and fear at bay to believe that God was able to do for her what everybody else could no. You cannot expect God to do the impossible until you dare to step out of your comfort and security. Allow the Holy Spirit to give you new thoughts, new ideas and new strategies. Be willing to change, leave what is familiar to you and do things differently. If you keep doing what you have always done, you will keep getting what you have always got. So if you want different to get results, you need new ideas. We must move out of our old ways of thinking about things and move into new God ideas. Let us not limit God. Let go of yesterday’s disappointments, condemnation, feelings of failure and all the if onlys. Whatever happened, happened for reasons you are not supposed to understand. Accept it and venture into new territories. Your faith can move your mountain, but your fear can create one. Do not be afraid of failure. Get encouraged about your discouragement. Shake it off and step out in faith, conﬁdence and boldness. You are too close to give up now, you are about to run through the ﬁnish line.
Expectation is the power to have an idea that becomes so real that you see it and feel it before you can hold it Give yourself diligently to the task at hand. Do not just do what is expected
of you; break the barrier, go beyond and exceed expectations. Extra blessings come from extra efforts. When God opens a door, walk through it. Do not be intimidated, act with courage. Do not say ‘I am not good enough’ or ‘Someone else will do it’. If an opportunity comes your way and God opens a door, stand up and step out. Walk through that door and God will go with you. He will make up for what you do not have. You can reach your highest potential! It is never too late to call your dream into existence. God’s timing is always perfect. He is never too late or too early. He knows what He is doing with you. He loves you. Do not put limits on what God can do for you, with you and through you. He is a God of increase and abundance. Do not stand in the way of the miraculous for your own life. Do what people say cannot be done. Always pick an obstacle big enough to matter when you overcome it – and give God the glory. Day by day, year by year broaden your horizons. There are no limits for the life of faith. Men who build the future are those who know that greater things are yet to come. Two men were walking through an empty ﬁeld. One saw exactly what he expected to see: nothing but useless wasteland. The other ﬁlled with excitement and great expectation exclaimed, ‘This is it! This is the place!’ He knew exactly what was going to happen with the empty land. He knew on the inside what it was going to look like and what it would take to make it happen. He could neither see nor touch the dream. But he lived with the expectation for the day when it would become reality. His friends laughed at him. Today that wild expectation is a multi-million dollar park called Disney Land. What are your
expectations for your life? Are you excited about your future? Or are you facing your future with fear and failure? Expectation determines what you will have in your life and future. It is the power to have an idea that becomes so real that you see it and feel it before you can hold it. Expectation empowers you to think the unthinkable and to do the un-doable. It turns uncertain hope into certainty. Expectation is ﬁxating your eyes on the promised blessing with an eager anticipation of its fulﬁllment. To live with expectation is to live with hope, dreams, imagination and desires. If God is your partner, make big plans. You cannot know God’s desires until you know Him and He reveals them to you. Life offers you two choices: you can slumber and sleep your way through life or you can wake up and live life to the maximum. Expect good things from God. He has good plans for your future. Expect Him to open new doors for your life. You have been called to walk through doors of opportunities you have not seen yet.
You can slumber and sleep your way through life or you can wake up and live life to the full
Prophet Philip Banda
