|Is it Christ, who died and furthermore, He has also risen, Who is even at the right hand of God, Who also makes intercession for us?|
|(Romans 8:43, NKJV)|
This very moment, Jesus Christ is sitting at the right hand of the Father God. This very moment He is waiting for you to take that step of faith and say, “Father, in the name of Jesus!”
At that moment you say His name, Jesus stands up and says, “Father they are one of ours. My name is written on their hearts, so charge it to my account.” Isn’t that Good News? But it will never happen, until you take a hold of the Word of God, take hold of the name of Jesus Christ, and go before the Father with a heart full of expectancy. See, Jesus will never answer your prayer if there is not any expectancy.
When Jesus appeared to me, He said, “I never, ever will answer a prayer, unless a person has expectancy.” Then he said something that shocked the daylights out of me! He said, “I do not even hear the people who pray without expectancy. I don’t even hear prayers unless they are charged with expectancy.” A prayer without expectancy, is just blowing hot air. Isn’t that true?
That is why He warned in the book of Matthew about not standing on street corners with long and loud prayers. He said that those who do that are wasting their time. Jesus taught that He wants people to pray in “secret.” Your secret place! When you get into your secret place with nobody else is listening, in your closet by yourself with the Father, that is when you are praying with expectancy. Jesus said, “Whatever you ask the Father, In My Name, He will give it to you!” Isn’t that true! Except that half of the people, in Mexico are named Jesus, that means every time their mothers rang the dinner bell, there would be miracles everywhere! It is FAITH in the Name of Jesus! We have got to have faith in His Name and in His power, that is EXPECTANCY! I can sit here all day long and say, “Jesus, Jesus,” that does not mean anything, but when I say it full of expectancy: “In the Name of Jesus!” All of heaven moves on our behalf.
I know what I am talking about, Jesus said that, “If I paint a picture of him bigger in your heart than the circumstance, then you will receive your miracle.” You will always receive your miracle, if the picture of Jesus in your heart, is bigger than the circumstance. Feed on the Word. Constantly, feed on the Word. Then you say, “But you do not know how big the situation is!”
Do you not know, that when you feed on the Word and when the Word gets bigger than the situation the miracle happens.
What picture do you have in your heart tonight? Is it a big picture of Jesus Christ, robust and waiting to answer your prayers? Or is there a picture of a skinny, little Jesus still on the cross? Whatever picture is in your heart determines what you will receive.
