When faith brings you victory over and over and over [building you up], you get in a mindset. But if you’ve
never lost, there will come a day you’ll lose one. There will come a day you will drink a cup of sorrow.
There’ll come a day where you’ve been knocking home runs and you’ll get up and strike out. And THAT’S
when you have to be careful. Because the devil don’t want you to strike out once. He’s trying to create an
An expectation… And that’s why the Bible says (Romans 12:1-2), ‘do not be conformed to the pattern of
this world.’ In other words:
> Do not wrap your thinking around your circumstances.
> Do not wrap your thinking around your experiences.
> Do not wrap your thinking around all the negative things that have happened.
> Do not wrap your thinking around all the negative things that ARE happening.
Because if you ever conform you mind to all the losses, all the sorrow, and all the grief you’ve taken, you
have a mindset that will set in where you get up expecting THAT to repeat itself tomorrow – just like it
And I want to tell you, it’s not difficult to break something that happens once, but it is VERY difficult to
break something that is happening EVERY DAY!!! And to move that mindset back in to one where I
expected God to do something good again took me changing my mind in the middle of the bad.
You can’t wait until something good happens to get good expectations. Because the first thing where you
go to get free is you got to get free in your mind. And you’ve got to release the past and:
> Let go of the stuff.
> Let go of the experiences.
> Let go of the sorrow,
> Let go of the loss.
You’ve got to be transformed by the RENEWING of your mind. That word ‘transformed’ = means
metamorphosis. I can undergo a metamorphosis from negative things happening to positive things
happening but I’ve got to make the change in my thinking and in my expectation BEFORE it
changes in my life!
✘ And we want stuff to change in our life so that we can go through a metamorphosis in our thinking.
✔ You’ve got to go through a metamorphosis in your THINKING because anywhere your life goes,
your mind is going to have to get there first.
And maybe the Word of the Lord tonight to the whole Body, the Rhema, that God wanted me to speak to
you is you don’t just need A Word tonight; you need a MINDSET of Faith!
> You’ve got to believe God wants to bless you – that you’re blessed right now.
> The sick people have to believe God WANTS to heal you – and heals you right NOW!
> That you’re at peace – and you’re at peace right now!
> That your heart is liberated – and it is liberated right now.
And you have to believe that with that expectation! I don’t care if you walked in here with your heart
blinking and your life FALLING APART! Be transformed by the RENEWING of your mind. If you
can get your mind together, your life will go there!
I expect! I expect! I expect! I expect financial breakthrough. I expect favour. I expect blessing.
‘Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me ALL the days of my life.’ I’ll say that again. ‘Surely goodness
and mercy shall follow me ALL…’ ‘And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.’ ‘Thou oh Lord are a
shield about me.’ ‘You’re my glory and the Lifter of my head.’ ‘My peace I give unto thee.’ Not at peace as
the world gives, but a peace as God gives. ‘You are able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that I
could ask of me.
FAITH, FAITH, FAITH!
Hit him with Faith. Hit your enemy with Faith. Hit the devil with Faith!
He hit you with trouble – hit him with Faith.
