EXPECT TO RECEIVE!

"And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the Lord is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him."  (Isaiah 30:18)

I want to establish firmly in your heart forever that you need to begin to think about what you are thinking about.  So many people's problems are rooted in thinking patters that actually produce the problems they experience in their lives.  Remember that your actions are the direct result of your thoughts.  And although Satan offers wrong thinking to everyone, you don't need to accept his offer.

Isaiah 30:18 has become one of my favorite scriptures.  It you will ponder on it, it will begin to bring you great hope... and great power.  In it, God is saying that He is looking for someone to be gracious (good) to, but it cannot be someone with a sour attitude and a negative mind.  It must be someone who is expecting (looking and longing) for God to be good to him or her.

Don't ever give up, because little by little you are changing.  The more you change your mind for the better, the more your life will also change for the better.  When you begin to see God's plan for you in your thinking, you will begin to walk in it.

The mind is the leader or forerunner of all actions.  Always expect good things from God!
