How to Activate a Supernatural “Law” to Change Your Realities

Note: This is a guest post from my friend, evangelist Kyle Winkler. His teachings are powerful and are life-changing. Check it out. 

By Kyle Winkler

God is a law-giving, law-abiding God. We know that the universe He created is governed by a host of physical laws such as gravity, centrifugal force and inertia. These laws are constant and unchanging and give us faith that what worked yesterday will work the same today and tomorrow.

Also woven into the very foundations are creation are spiritual laws. Some of these described in Scripture include:

  • – The law of God’s Word to sustain and uphold all things (Heb. 1:3).
  • – The law of sin to destroy all things (Rom. 6:23).
  • – The law of the harvest that you later reap from what you earlier sowed (Gal. 6:7).

Like the physical laws, these spiritual laws are largely unseen and their effects are equally as evident.

The Law of Expectation

There’s another spiritual law that many overlook. And it’s too bad, because when activated, this law has supernatural power to change our realities. It’s what I call “the law of expectation.”

The law of expectation means that you eventually get what you expect.

Essentially the law of expectation means that you eventually get what you expect. This can be either negative or positive. If you expect to have a bad day, you’ll have a bad day. If you expect the favor of God, you’ll receive the favor of God. If you expect a breakthrough, you’ll eventually experience a breakthrough. And so on.

While I don’t have the space here to review these in detail, here are a few examples of the law of expectation throughout Scripture. (I explore these in depth in my book, Activating the Power of God’s Word.)

  • – In the midst of trouble, David made a declaration of expectation, and he later experienced what he anticipated (Ps. 27:13).
  • – A woman who suffered from hemorrhaging expected instant healing from Jesus, and with some tenacity, she received it (Mk. 5:28–34).
  • – During a journey to Rome, a storm nearly killed Paul and his crew. But Paul expected God to make good on a previous His Word, and his expectations were met (Acts 27:18–22).

The 3 Foundations of Expectation

Certainly, there must be a valid reason for whatever you expect. That is, you must have a real, biblical basis for your confidence. And as the main point of this article, I want to use the examples I cited above to share with you the three primary foundations of positive expectations.

When you know these, you can change your thinking and speaking accordingly and thereby experience the power of this law at work in your life, too.

1) The Character of God

Rather than set our expectations according to how something appears or feels, we should instead renew our minds according to the truth of who God is and what He says.

David had such an intimate relationship with the Lord that he knew God is faithful and loving and desires good things for His people. And thus, David’s declaration was based on God’s character.

Today, not only do we have the benefit of knowing the character of God through the 24/7 presence of His Holy Spirit in our lives, but we also have God’s Word that reveals who He is and what He wants. Rather than set our expectations according to how something appears or feels, we should instead renew our minds according to the truth of who God is and what He says.

2) The History of God

God doesn’t show favoritism. If He did it for someone else, He can also do it for you!

The woman who suffered from hemorrhaging built her confidence that she would be healed based on stories of others who were healed before her. This is a very effective way to build faith and expectation that’s modeled even in modern church history.

Consider some of the great moves of God within the twentieth century, all of which were coupled with tremendous miracles. In each case, when word of the miracles spread, faith was built in the hearers to expect that what God was doing for others, He could also do for them. And indeed, God honored these expectations.

If you need an instant boost of confidence that God will work something out in your life, begin to study the stories of God’s power in the lives of others. Remember, God doesn’t show favoritism (Rom. 2:11). If He did it for someone else, He can also do it for you!

3) The Word of God

With thousands of promises throughout Scripture, we have plenty of reasons for great expectations!

Finally, Paul’s confidence that he and his crew would make it out alive came because he set his eyes on God’s Word. The Lord had revealed to Him that he would stand before the emperor, and thus Paul determined to trust God’s Word over even a seemingly deadly storm (Acts 27:23–24).

Paul’s expectation founded on the assurance of God’s Word is an extremely practical method for us today. With thousands of promises throughout Scripture, we have plenty of reasons for great expectations!

Change Your Expectations

Maybe it’s time you take inventory of your expectations. If your mantra sounds more like, “Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong,” then you’re missing out on huge potential for positive transformation in your life.

Whatever the situation, ask the Holy Spirit to lead you to Scriptures, promises and stories that bolster your faith that something good is going to happen. Then keep those words and reminders running through your mind and your mouth. Begin your morning or the take on that circumstance with the curiosity, “I wonder how God will surprise me today?” Then wait expectantly to see what God does.

Today Pray For: Pastor Andy Savage

Andy-Savage
Andy Savage (YouTube)

Jesus said in Matthew 5:44 to “love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”

Today and every day going forward we will pray for those in the news and for those who need the love of Jesus in their hearts. If there is anyone you feel compelled to pray for in this blog, please email me at akersofracing@aol.com.

Andy Savage, teaching pastor at Memphis, Tennessee megachurch, recently admitted in front of his congregation that he was guilty of sexual activity with a teen when he was a college student on staff at a Texas church 20 years ago. He asked for forgiveness from the Memphis congregation.

In light of the sexual abuse scandals that have arisen in our culture in recent months, Savage has come under a great deal of scrutiny. His book, The Ridiculously Good Marriage, was recently pulled from literary roster of Bethany House and Baker Publishing. In a statement, Savage said this:

“This incident was dealt with in Texas 20 years ago, but in the last few days has been presented to a wider audience. I was wrong and I accepted responsibility for my actions. I was sorry then and remain so today. Again, I sincerely ask for forgiveness from her and pray for God’s continued healing for everyone involved.”

Andy Savage now has a difficult journey ahead of him. Therefore we pray:

“Lord Jesus, you are a God of grace and forgiveness, and we know that you have forgiven Andy Savage for the transgression he committed 20 years ago in Texas. We see that he has been repentant in his heart, and that he has obviously suffered and anguished over this incident for a long, long time. The ramifications of his actions, of which he is forgiven, are intensifying. Give him peace–the peace that surpasses all understanding–to be able to deal with everything that comes his way, including the loss of the book deal and any further disciplinary action his current employer might take. Let him know that You are with him. If there is still any sin in his heart and things he has not dealt with over the years, convict his heart and let him be overwhelmed with repentance. We pray for his wife, Stephanie, and for the pain this has caused her. We pray that you give her resolve to stand by her husband and to forgive him. We pray that you strengthen their marriage through this and that they are able to flourish despite the schemes of the devil that are trying to destroy him.

Help those involved, especially the victim, to reach down deep in their hearts and truly forgive Pastor Savage and to give him grace as You have done. Help the victim’s heart to heal and for her pain to heal. The enemy obviously is trying to destroy her through her hanging on to this pain from 20 years ago. Protect her from the wiles of the enemy, and help her to stand up to the enemy and say, “No more. It is done.”

We pray for Pastor Savage’s church and for the hearts of those who will hold this against him. Give them the fortitude to forgive and show him grace. In the mighty name of Jesus we pray. Amen.”

“But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.” (Eph. 4:7, MEV).

“And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.” (Rom. 11:6, MEV).

 

 

Pray Today For: Persecuted Christians Worldwide

Take time to pray for persecuted Christians today and every day. God will bless you for it. (Lightstock)

Jesus said in Matthew 5:44 to “love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”

Today and every day going forward we will pray for those in the news and for those who need the love of Jesus in their hearts. If there is anyone you feel compelled to pray for in this blog, please email me at akersofracing@aol.com.

This week, OpenDoorsUSA.org released its annual World Watch List of the 50 countries where it is dangerous to profess your Christian faith. And, for the 16th consecutive year, North Korea and its communist regime sit atop of the list.

According to the website, “it is illegal to be a Christian in North Korea and Christians are often sent to labor camps or are killed if they are discovered.

The website says that, “some 50,000 Christians (worldwide) are languishing in prison or labor camps for their faith.”

For the first time, Afghanistan came in a close second behind North Korea. Somalia is third, the Sudan fourth and Pakistan fifth. My friend, Evangelist Chris Mikkelson, takes his life into his own hands every time he visits Pakistan to preach the gospel. But, he does it fearlessly and boldly in obedience to God.

If you are reading this, please know that these people desperately need your prayers. you already know there is power in prayer, so be in obedience to God today and take a couple of minutes to recite this prayer. Therefore:

“Lord Jesus, we come to you in unity as a body and obedience to you to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ in these countries where it is dangerous to profess you as their savior. We know that they don’t need to live in fear because, as your word says, you have not given us a spirit of fear. But the persecution continues, and we ask for your divine protection over them as these people do your will and continue to praise you despite the ramifications of their faithfulness.

We adamantly pray for the people in the countries on this list–and the countries that are not on the list–who are persecuted for loving You. Let we, the American church, look at these people as an example and stop taking for granted the freedoms we have–the freedoms you have given us–to freely worship you. Let us never forget that they sometimes pay the ultimate price for their faithfulness to you, and that their reward is greater in Heaven. We ask that you pour down your divine protection upon them right now in the name of Jesus.

Soften the hearts of these government leaders–especially those like Kim Jong Un–and reveal your glory to them. Give them a “Road to Damascus Moment,” and let their hearts be forever changed. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

“Pray in the Spirit always with all kinds of prayer and supplication. To that end be alert with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.” (Eph. 6:18)

 

 

 

Pray Today For: Nicki Minaj

Nicki-Minaj
Nicki Minaj (Facebook)

Jesus said in Matthew 5:44 to “love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”

Today and every day going forward we will pray for those in the news and for those who need the love of Jesus in their hearts. If there is anyone you feel compelled to pray for in this blog, please email me at akersofracing@aol.com.

Secular rapper Nicki Minaj hasn’t exactly built her career on wholesome, family-friendly lyrics. As a matter of fact, her stage shows have sometimes bordered on the raunchy and her outfits well, more than a bit revealing.

Recently, however, Minaj “professed her salvation” in a song that has become very popular throughout the Christian iTunes chart. The fact that she has apparently become friends with gospel superstar Tasha Cobbs and has prayed for her through social media also gives an indication that Minaj may have found Jesus.  Therefore we pray for this child of God:

“Lord, we thank you and praise you for your glory and your power. We know with you that nothing is impossible. We pray today for your precious child Nicki Minaj. We know the reputation she has built and what is based upon. We know how worldly she has been in the past. Because we are all sinners and have fallen short of the glory of the God, none of us can judge her or point fingers at her for what she has done. We are all guilty of sin.

But now, Father God, Ms. Minaj has publicly confessed you as savior in one of her songs. We thank you and praise You for that miraculous declaration, and we ask you now that You surround her with people that will disciple her and help her grow in her love for you. Purify her heart so that the evil one cannot steal this miraculous victory in her life. We ask You to surround her with people that will direct her away from her previous life and the temptations of the evil one to go back into that life.  Send her people that will encourage her to life her life sold out for Jesus. She know that she can impact an audience and has a great following. Help her to impact people for Christ in a much more powerful way than she ever influenced audiences for the world. Help her to make a difference in the lives of those who admire her talent, while letting those people know that she is only a humble servant of God.

You can use those who, before, appeared to be unusable for the Gospel, like the apostle Paul. Let Your light shine and flourish through Ms. Minaj and let her bring the lost to You. Let more and more entertainers and athletes, whom the public admires and sometimes worships, come to you so they can impact the world.

Again, we glorify You and praise You. Only You can make this happen. Let the power of the Holy Spirit reign in Nicki Minaj’s life. Amen.

  • “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” (Rom. 3:23, MEV)
  • “In Him we have redemption through His blood and the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace.” (Eph. 1:7, MEV) 
  • “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”  (Rom. 8:1, MEV)

 

 

 

 

Pray Today For: The People of Iran

Jesus-politician
People of Iran, repent and turn to Jesus. He is waiting for you. (Lightstock)

Jesus said in Matthew 5:44 to “love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”

Today and every day going forward we will pray for those in the news and for those who need the love of Jesus in their hearts. If there is anyone you feel compelled to pray for in this blog, please email me at akersofracing@aol.com.

The anti-government protests across Iran are reported to be winding down, so let us pray today for the people of Iran and God’s protection over them. With starvation, poor housing and simply horrendous living conditions plaguing the country, we must pray that God intervenes to take down this totalitarian regime and that He shows the people His glory. Therefore:

“In the name of Jesus, we lift up the people of Iran to you today, Lord, and ask that you pour our your love and protection over them as they voice their displeasure and desperation to this Islamic, totalitarian government that continues to oppress them and steal from them. Father God, we ask you to reveal yourself to the Iranian people and let them know who You truly are–the Almighty, Everlasting God, the Prince of Peace. Let them know that You are all they need and that they can turn to You for their salvation and the peace that surpasses all understanding. Deliver them from the selfish people who are oppressing them but, better yet, turn the hearts of the oppressors so that they might see the damage they have caused in the lives of these people and bring restitution. Let the eyes of the people miraculously be opened to the lies and deceit they have been subjected to and to shun every false teaching that they have been born into. Let there be radical healing of their land, and bring them to the knowledge and understanding of Jesus Christ. Meet their every need–feed them, clothe them and shelter them and bless them in every way today and going forward. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

John 1:5 (MEV): “The light shines in darkness, but the darkness has not overcome it.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

One week of anti-government protests across Iran has posed the greatest existential threat to the Islamic Republic’s theocratic regime in almost a decade.

The spontaneous protests, often taking place in smaller provincial cities, have taken not only the Iranian government by surprise, they have also shocked traditional opposition groups and analysts.

Grieving People DO Need to Hear This

Allow yourself to grieve, but know that God will work it out for His good, which is ultimately your good. (Flickr)

 

We at Charismamag.com recently posted an article titled, “Stop Saying God Works Out Everything for God’s Good’ to Those Grieving Right Now.” I’m not so sure that’s the best piece of advice.

Like the writer of the article, my wife and I too went through a miscarriage at one point (and we thought, because of her age, we would never be able to conceive). It eventually took four years overall for us to conceive and have a child.

When you are going through infertility problems, yes, you don’t want to hear anything like, “buck up” (yes that was an actual quote from a church friend of ours, believe it or not) or that everything is going to be alright if we simply stop worrying about it.

Even if you are a believer, it is very difficult for anyone to console you during a time like that, or when a loved one passes away. You simply don’t want to hear it. But you know what? God does work things out for the good of those who love Him, and it’s good for people who are grieving to be reminded of that.

Scripture is the best medicine here. The reason I say that is because it’s not what you may want to hear, but it’s what you need to hear. My wife and I indeed heard that scripture, and we were still disheartened. But, if we hadn’t heard it, then we wouldn’t have taken steps to get over our grief and move on.

After that, we decided that we would finally leave our fertility problems at God’s feet and leave it there instead of picking it back up again. We decided to trust Him totally because we knew that we certainly couldn’t fix the problem. It had to be God.

And, when we did lay it at his feet and leave it there, taking our minds off of the situation, then God blessed us with not only our first child, our beautiful Rachel, but also a second child in our wonderful Joshua. They are teens now, and they are a blessing and a joy (sometimes a challenge, but that’s a different story).

My point is that people may not want to readily hear that God will work things out for His good. All they know is that it hurts, and the hurt won’t go away. But, the optimum phrase here is “His good.” It’s all His anyway. And if you put your trust in the Lord, the hurt WILL go away. I guarantee it.

“But, if we hadn’t heard it, then we wouldn’t have taken steps to get over our grief and move on.”

Children are His gift that He gives us, and we are simply stewards of that gift. So, you have to believe that our wonderful and almighty God, our sovereign and omnipotent God, knows what He is doing in your life. He WILL work it out for your good; you simply have to trust Him. Yes, you will grieve, and it’s normal and healthy to grieve. Allow yourself to do that.

But also know that God has your back and that He will work it out for HIS good, which is YOUR good. Put your trust in Him in EVERY situation. He will honor that.

And remember to do something to rise up higher in your calling today.

Proverbs 3:5-6 (MEV): “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.”

Pray Today For: Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump

christian-prayer
Let’s all pray for our leader and North Korea’s, whether your flesh wants to or not. “If my people will humble themselves and pray …” (Lightstock)

Jesus said in Matthew 5:44 to “love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”

Today and every day going forward we will pray for those in the news and for those who need the love of Jesus in their hearts. If there is anyone you feel compelled to pray for in this blog, please email me at akersofracing@aol.com.

While some of you might think twice about praying for vicious dictator Kim Jong Un, and some for our own President Donald Trump, but now is certainly the time to be on our knees for both of them. In what has become what some are terming, “World War Tweet,” the two world leaders are letting everyone know in no uncertain terms that they are not going to back down from the nuclear threats of the other.

And, it is becoming a “dangerous standoff,” CBN News reported this morning. In his New Year’s Day speech, Jong Un actually said, “The US should know that the nuclear button is on my desk. The entire US mainland is within our nuclear strike range.” To which Trump retorted in a tweet yesterday, “Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”

It’s a war of words that no one can afford to see escalate. Therefore:

“Dear Lord, we come to you today in humility and plead with you to intercede on our behalf to speak to the hearts of the leaders of both North Korea and the United States. Help President Trump not be so reactionary about the threats of his counterpart, but to help him act accordingly as the leader of our nation to protect us. Guide him in all his endeavors. He is under a lot of pressure, as You know, so speak to his heart and let Him know that You are with him and that you will show him what to do. Help him to seek you in everything he does. He’s only a man and cannot possibly fathom Your ways and Your will, but humble him guide his every step as he faces the threats of a man who obviously does not know you.

And Lord, we pray for Kim Jong Un, who has shown that he certainly does not know who You are and does not know Your almighty power. We ask that you radically change his heart, because that is what it is going to take. And, only You can do that. We pray for Jong Un that he sees that life is precious, and that you remove the selfishness and hardness of his heart to help him see Your glory. It’s going to take a radical move from you and the Holy Spirit to touch his heart and for him to care for his people, as well as the people of the United States. Only you know his true heart, but what we see is pure evil and pure Satan in his character. You have already defeated the enemy. Turn Jong Un’s heart around and show the world Your almighty power and what you can do. We know that if you are for us, then who can be against us?

Turn the hearts of all the world’s dictators and remove the hatred from their hearts. Give them all peace in their minds and hearts so that we may all live in peace. We praise You and thank You in Your mighty name. Amen.”

2 Chronicles 7:14 (MEV): “If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Jesus said in Matthew 5:44 to “love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”

The leader of Bethel worship ministry, Joel Taylor, desperately needs our prayers right now. His two-year-old son, Jaxon, has been in the hospital fighting for his life after being diagnosed with E. coli; and now his four-year-old daughter, Addie, has been admitted to the hospital with the same infection. So:

“In the name of Jesus, we come against this strand of E. coli that has entered the bodies of these two precious children. We bind that spirit of infection, and we know that “by His stripes, we are healed.” Holy Spirt, we need miraculous healing for these two children so that they may continue their life journey, a life journey that will honoring to you and give you all the praise and glory. And we lift up Joel right now and his wife that they not be anxious about this, knowing that you have this, and that your grace is sufficient. Take away the worry and the anxiety, and be with them and comfort them as they help nurse their children back to health. Help them to be strong in you throughout this valley. You are the Great Physician and the Great Healer. To you be the glory. Amen.”

“But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5, MEV)

 

Pray Today For: Oregon Bakers Aaron and Melissa Klein

Jesus said in Matthew 5:44 to “love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”

This week, the Oregon Court of appeals ordered the owners of Sweet Bakeries by Melissa—Aaron and Melissa Klein—to pay fines of $135,000 for refusing to bake a cake to celebrate a lesbian couple’s same-sex wedding.

Because the Kleins refused to violate their values and principles (a right guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution no matter what any court says), they were forced to shut down their bakery, thus killing their American dream of owning and thriving in a business they loved. In essence, Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer, the plaintiffs in the case, were responsible for helping to kill that dream because they couldn’t (or wouldn’t) find someone else to bake the cake for them. So:

“Lord Jesus, we turn to you in intercession on behalf of Aaron and Melissa Klein. They are disheartened by this ruling from man, a ruling that has taken away their business and put them into debt for the fines they have incurred. Lord, we ask that you lift up the Kleins and encourage them, let them put their trust in you and your word, especially Romans 8:28 that says, “We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Let them see that you will never leave them nor forsake them, and help them supernaturally raise the money to pay off this outlandish and unlawful fine that has been levied against them. Help them to realize their dream by taking them in a direction they never believed they would go. Prosper them and lift them up.

“And we pray for Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer, that they not see this as a “revenge-filled victory” in their lives and justification. Let them see your glory instead and turn their hearts so that they may know your love instead of the selfishness of the world. Turn their hearts so that your light will shine through them and let them see that you are the only thing they need in their lives. We also pray for the Oregon judges in the courts. Let them know how You want things done and how you want them to make their decisions. Let them see the nature of their ways and that those are not your ways. Touch the heart of each judge and we pray for their salvation, in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
