WHAT ARE YOUR EXPECTATIONS?
Jesus came to planet earth to change our expectations about what is possible. Until Jesus came, the blind, the poor, the prisoners, and the oppressed lived without hope. Low expectations and negative expectations controlled their lives. Blind beggars lived in the Land of No Hope.
When Jesus walked on the road to Jericho, a sightless beggar shouted out, "Jesus, have mercy on me," but the crowd surrounding Jesus rebuked him and told him to be quiet. Everyone knew that blind beggars were beyond hope, everyone except Jesus and the blind beggar. The crowd tried to extinguish the voice of hope, but the blind man would not be silent, and he cried out once again, "Have mercy on me."
It wasn't the blind man who was blind; it was the crowd that could not see and could not sense hope. They knew there was no hope, and they would silence anyone who disagreed. Extinguishing hope was their specialty.
Jesus had a sixth sense that the crowds didn't have. He could sense hope and positive expectations even in blind beggars. The crowd could not shout Jesus down or keep him from his mission. Jesus came to fan the flames of hope inside the human heart until it became a burning fire that could not be quenched.
Jesus stopped in his tracks and ordered that the blind man be brought before him. A gasp went up from the crowd. What was Jesus doing? Didn't he know that there wasn't any hope?
Jesus probed the heart and mind of the blind beggar and discovered hope that no one else could see. He asked a simple question. "What do you want me to do for you?" What are your expectations? After all, it doesn't matter what all these people think and expect. It's your expectations that count.
The man said, "Lord, I want to see."
Jesus said, "Receive your sight; your faith has healed you," and instantly the man received his sight.
Jesus didn't say, "My faith has healed you." He made it clear that it was the beggar's faith, his positive expectations that made the miracle come to pass.
In the past two-thousand years some things remain unchanged. The crowd still tries to shout us down and shut us up, telling us that there is no hope. Jesus still asks the same question. "What do you want me to do for you? What are your expectations?"
Jesus answer is still the same. IT's your faith that will heal you. It all comes down to your expectations. Faith still works miracles in your heart and mind. God makes miracles happen when positive expectations rule your heart and mind.
Jesus came to light the fire of hope in your heart. He came to fill your heart and mind with positive expectations. When you get in agreement with God, positive things happen. Your old life passes away, and all things become new.
What do you want God to do for you? What are your expectations?
