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
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
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?
