God’s power is released when we pray in faith, trusting and believing Him,
because faith pleases Him. Expectancy is an attribute of faith that carries
its own kind of power – the power of hope. Faith reaches out into the
spiritual realm and expects God’s supernatural power to show up and do what
no person on Earth could do. Doubt, on the other hand, is afraid nothing good
will happen; it does not please God and is not something He is able to bless.
We are powerless when we live with doubt, disappointment and a lack of
confidence in God. Just think about a time when you were not really sure
God would come through for you. You were not able to pray very powerful
prayers, were you? Now recall a time when your heart trusted completely in
God and you really believed that He would come through for you. You were
able to pray then with a certain sense of power weren’t you? That’s the
power of expectation in prayer. Even if things don’t work out exactly the
way you hoped they would, trust God to know what is best and keep expecting
Him to do great things.
