Expectational Faith- a God fulfilling prophesy of things promised to take place.
If a person believes what they are told or convinces himself/herself of the fact, chances are this person will see the expectation to its inevitable conclusion. This is exactly what expectational Faith is all about. We don't simply have Faith or Belief in God. Instead we have Faith of a God that is alive and active in our lives because he loves us. We are to live, worship and love and Expectational God that has promised to us very specific things!

What Kind of Expectation do you have from the Lord? What is so Amazing is to see how my Faith grows how I first came to Christ I was (and most certainly still Am!!!) most grateful to God for giving us his son to die for our sins! That my Salvation alone was the greatest gift I could have ever received! Then as I pressed into the Lord I discovered that his promises are more than salvation! That's what I get most excited to share with others. Not only do you get a God that promises you Eternal Life for whomever believes in Jesus; but you can be set free and given the Keys to Heaven here on Earth where you'll be broken loose of the bondage's, that you'll be mended in heart, mind and spirit. The transforming power of Jesus is so under spoken! We need the world to hear the ENTIRE message! The devil would more than ever for you to be robbed of the Life that God truly created for you!
I look forward and anticipate that the God I trust has the ability to create miracles (Mend my heart, convict me, heal me, guide me, equip me) in my life (supernaturally!)
My Mental attitude is that God is going to move in my life not based on the things of this Earth that can show me proof, but upon the word (the Holy Bible) that substantiates the super natural grace, mercy and love of God.
I have expectations that my prayers don't enter heaven void. I have expectations that God will answer my questions. I have expectations that when I minister in the name of the Lord that God will reveal a word that will build up, edify and show love, mercy to his children. I have an expectation that when I speak the name of Jesus that the devil flees. I have an expectation that because his word promises that because of his sealed promise in my heart that no weapon formed against me shall prosper.
What I want most is for All Children of God to call upon the Lord with Expectation! That you tap into the love, grace and mercy that God has for us all and begin to walk, speak and live out a Super Natural Life as he planned.
