"According to your faith will it be done to you." Thanking God in advance for the plans He has for us, is to believe in the authority of Jesus. Thanking God is to exercise FAITH in what we believe Jesus is able to do in us, for us and through us. According to our FAITH that our Father, who art in heaven, that He gives His best to His children, that He wants to bless us, that His ways are superior to our ways, that His plans are best, and GOOD ~ we ACT in FAITH, trusting GOD in all things, in all circumstances. When we THANK our LORD for the best outcome, in advance of the event, the promotion, or the activity, we trust that He is with us, that He is in us, that He goes before us ~ and we WALK by FAITH, not by sight and we receive His anointing as we GO, as we WALK this way. We get READY to receive His best as we EXPECT that our GOD IS GOOD all the time. When we THANK GOD verbally, and genuinely from our hearts, in advance, He prepares our hearts by expanding us to receive MORE than we ask for! Holy scriptures encourage us and remind us that "Without FAITH, it is impossible to please God". FAITH is NOT a desire to do good, nor is it pretending that we are not incapable without God. Faith is not a feeling. FAITH is EXPECTING GOOD things to come out of every encounter or situation because we know that what God sees in a miserable drunk, is a future evangelist. God sees a potential nurse when He looks at a broken prostitute. Oh Lord gives us eyes to see what you see in every circumstance, and in each person we meet. Give us courage to step out in faith and speak words of faith as we expect Your best! Expecting the best brings honor to God, and it increases our ability to be effective for His kingdom. Expecting the best encourages others to have HOPE! Holy Spirit HELP us to use our tongue NOT as a weapon, but as a blessing. A young scrawny teen looked upon a Giant and expected that his God was bigger, and that God would use his slingshot to bring down his foe! Fill your mouth with WORDS OF FAITH and change the ENVIRONMENT of your home, workplace and church!
