Genesis 13:14 And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed forever.
The level of your expectation will determine the size of your harvest. After Lot was separated from Abraham, the Lord said to Abraham these words “lift up your eyes”: that meant raise your expectations. God had told Abraham that he would give him the Land of Canaan, but he may have had only a limited view of what this meant. His expectation may have been that all he would receive was the few square footage that he occupied at the time. So God deemed it necessary to challenge him to raise his expectation. Thereafter the Lord emphasized the importance of this, by highlighting to him the principle that the size of his harvest was contingent on the level of his expectation. The Lord did this by saying that the amount of land that he would receive is in direct correlation to what he saw or expect when he looked northward, southward, eastward and westward. Do not limit your success, by limiting your expectation. What you expect determines how you act and ultimately your reality. It is time to raise your expectation.
Life Application: Rehearse in your ears your God given promise or dream two to three times daily.
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to raise my expectations as it relates to different areas of my life. I admit that there are times when I am limited in my views and as such I walk by sight instead of by faith. Change this mindset in me. In Jesus name, amen.
