Focus your expectation with confidence in the Lord.

When we focus on the Word. . .we position ourselves for victory over incredible circumstances.

Matthew 14:28-29 in the Amplified Bible says:

“And Peter answered Him, Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.  He said, Come! So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water, and he came toward Jesus.”

The scripture doesn’t say Peter took a step or two and began to sink. It says he walked.  How far did he walk. . .I don’t know?  But it had to be some distance from the boat.

Peter focused on Jesus. . .which meant He was focusing on the Word of Jesus.

Jesus is the Word (John 1:1-3).  As long as Peter focused on the Word . .  . there was no limitation to what he could achieve. . .even walking on the water.  But. . .

Matthew 14:30 in the Amplified Bible says:

“Father, in the name of Jesus, I command this Holy Spirit led-seed to go where I tell it to go. . .to do what I tell it to do. I speak that it will not return void.  In the strong name of Jesus, by the authority of the Word in Matthew 16:19 which says that whatever is bound on earth is bound in heaven. . .I bind any and every hindering spirit that would seek crop failure for the precious seed that I’m sowing.

 

"The Word says in John 16:23 that whatever I ask in your name. . .you will give it to me.  Father, just as a farmer expects a harvest from the seed he sows into the ground. . .I’m claiming my mega harvest over the seed that I’ve sown.  I’m standing in expectation for an immediate bumper crop harvest.  In the name of Jesus, I pray.  Amen.”

Are you discouraged today. . .for any reason?

Have you been fighting discouragement about your family, job, health or anything else?

If you have. . .take heart.

God is on your side even in your weakness.

He’s for you when you stumble.

He’s for you even when you grumble. . .though He doesn’t like that very much.

Are you so discouraged that it makes you want to quit?

The next two statements should make you shout and send glory bumps all over your body.

First, God not only loves you. . .but He wants to help you right now.

Never let your circumstances define your destiny.  Rather create the circumstances that will assure your destiny.
