EXPECT GOD’S BLESSING BY FAITH

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).

You receive it in Christ, you celebrate it in worship, and you expect it by faith. God blesses people who trust Him. God blesses people who believe in Him.

Hebrews 11:1 says that only faith can guarantee the blessings we hope for – not going to church, being a nice person or anything else. Only faith can guarantee the blessings we hope to enjoy. God blesses you when you trust Him. God loves it when you expect Him to take care of you. You say, “God, I don’t know how to handle this problem but I’m trusting You. I’m up to my neck and I’m in deep and I feel like I’m going under for the last time. But God You have blessed me in the past so I am certain that You’re going to do it again because You are a good God.”

“God, I don’t know how this is all going to work out. I don’t know what You’re doing and I don’t know what the problem’s solution is but I do know this. You are a God of blessing and You have blessed me many times before and I am counting on it. I am trusting You.”

And God says, “That’s my girl! That’s my guy! You’re doing exactly what I want you to do. Trust Me.”

It is faith that brings the blessing of God in your life.

And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him (Hebrews 11:6).

How many things did you do this week that were unpleasing? Every time I chose to worry instead of have faith, I did not please God. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 9 that God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways so that you’re ready for anything and everything.

Let me ask you a very personal question. What are you expecting God to do in your life? What are you expecting God to do this next week in your life? The Bible says, “According to your faith it will be done unto you.” That means you get to decide.

Do you know what God’s going to do in your life this next week? Exactly what you expect Him to do! No more, no less. According to your faith.
