God placed the gift of quantum change in your heart and mind at the moment of your birth. You didn't need any special instruction in how to make it happen. You performed effortless quantum change on a daily basis. Change was your way of life.
Nobody needed to tell you, "As you believe, so shall it be done unto you."
You didn't even need to think about quantum change. You did it naturally. It was programmed into your DNA.
Unfortunately, the world conspires to snuff out quantum change, and by the time you are eighteen years old, you have stopped believing that change is possible. You have heard the words no and impossible so many times that you believe their limiting message. Quantum change becomes an ancient memory, and before long you forget it even exists. The world erases it from your mind.
You stop dreaming great dreams and quantum beliefs no longer work their magic in your life.
Limited and infrequent change are the hallmark of adulthood. Adult beliefs are set in concrete, and adults resist quantum change. Most adults believe that change is impossible. After all, you can't teach an old dog new tricks. And they are right. You can't teach an old dog new tricks using the same limiting beliefs that have imprisoned him in the dog house year after year.
But it doesn't have to be that way. Although you might be out of practice, if you are still breathing, you can fire up your quantum dream machine, and start making new dreams come true. You can adopt new quantum beliefs, develop awesome quantum expectations, and instantly leap to new levels.
Adults need to understand that change is possible. They are not stuck in Nowhere Land. They can make a quantum leap as soon as new quantum beliefs take over their mind.
When Jesus talked to children, he didn't need to tell them to take quantum leaps. For them it was as natural as breathing. It was the adults who needed to be told that quantum change was possible. That is why Jesus told them, "As you believe, so shall it be done unto you."
You may worry that the only changes you can make are small ones. It seems like there is zero chance to make a massive quantum leap into the world of change.
Worry no more. Small quantum changes add up over time, and small changes are more important than large ones, because small ones make the big ones possible.
The size of the change is unimportant. It's the frequency of change that really counts. Your growth is proportional to the frequency of change. When you make lots of small changes, you are exercising you quantum muscles, and exercise makes them grow stronger. Small changes are like an injection of anabolic steroids, and your quantum muscles rapidly increase in power. It's the number of repetitions that count. You make small changes until those small changes start making you, and then you move on to bigger things.
Your quantum muscles start bulging and before long you are making massive quantum leaps. But you have to start small. You can't skip the small. Without the small, you will never become big.
When Jesus started his ministry, he didn't talk about gradual change or tweaking your life here and there to create marginal improvement.
Jesus had a radical quantum message. Jesus believed in quantum change.
He talked about being born again. His quantum message made you into a new person. Old things pass away and all things become new.
He talked about good news for the poor. The only good news the poor ever want to hear about is prosperity, and Jesus told them that real blessings are on the way.
Jesus told prisoners that the freedom train was coming. Prisoners do not need a pat on the back and a cheerful word to make it through another day. They want freedom. Jesus said they needed to get ready for a quantum leap to freedom.
Jesus promised recovery of sight to the blind. If there ever was a quantum leap universally appreciated by everyone on planet earth, giving sight to the blind is the most impressive. One second you are blind, and the next second you see.
Jesus promised release for the oppressed. Say goodbye to your addictions and depression. Your time of oppression is over. It's time to make a quantum leap to wholeness.
Jesus proclaimed the year of the Lord's favor. It was the year when the word impossible was banished from planet earth. It was the time when all things became possible for those who believed. It was the year of the Quantum Leap.
Jesus had a backpack full of quantum beliefs that he liberally distributed to every person he met. He wasn't interested in making people feel better about their miserable condition. He was interested in making new people. It wasn't just a makeover. It was a whole new you with a completely new life.
Jesus made it clear that quantum beliefs are for everyone, not just a select few.
Religious leaders did not receive any special privilege denied to the common folks. Everyone is equal in the realm of quantum beliefs. His message of quantum hope was so simple that even children could understand it. Children were already experts at making quantum leaps, because they had not stopped believing.
Jesus said that quantum leaps were for everyone. Nobody had an advantage in God's kingdom of love.
Once people opened their heart and mind to God's love and dared to call him Father, it's almost as if Jesus was saying, "Let the quantum leaps begin."
Every time Jesus talked with people in need, he reinforced his quantum message saying, "As you believe, so shall it be done unto you." Every deaf ear heard the words, "Your faith has made you whole." Withered hands and lame legs leaped to life when quantum faith took control.
Quantum beliefs result in quantum expectations, and quantum expectations result in quantum change and a quantum life.
But for quantum change to work, you have to take it personally.
You have to put quantum beliefs in your mind, develop quantum expectations, take quantum actions so the quantum leap can happen.
Once you have a mind full of quantum beliefs, it time for quantum expectations to work their magic.
It's time to ask expectantly.
It's time to seek expectantly.
It's time to knock expectantly.
While you are asking, seeking and knocking, you are not sitting on your hands waiting for good things to happen. You are working as if it all depends on you, and trusting as if it all depends on God.
You are doing your part so that God can do his. Waiting expectantly will be the busiest and most challenging period of your life. You are training for your next quantum leap. You are running faster, training longer, and practicing harder because you need to be ready for when your next quantum leap comes your way.
Jesus came to planet earth to change our expectations about what is possible. Until Jesus came, the blind, the poor, the prisoners, and the oppressed lived without hope. Low expectations and negative expectations controlled their lives. Blind beggars lived in the Land of No Hope.
When Jesus walked on the road to Jericho, a sightless beggar shouted out, “Jesus, have mercy on me,” but the crowd surrounding Jesus rebuked him and told him to be quiet. Everyone knew that blind beggars were beyond hope, everyone except Jesus and the blind beggar. The crowd tried to extinguish the voice of hope, but the blind man would not be silent, and he cried out once again, “Have mercy on me.”
It wasn’t the blind man who was blind; it was the crowd that could not see and could not sense hope. They knew there was no hope, and they would silence anyone who disagreed. Extinguishing hope was their specialty.
Jesus had a sixth sense that the crowds didn’t have. He could sense hope and positive expectations even in blind beggars. The crowd could not shout Jesus down or keep him from his mission. Jesus came to fan the flames of hope inside the human heart until it became a burning fire that could not be quenched.
Jesus stopped in his tracks and ordered that the blind man be brought before him. A gasp went up from the crowd. What was Jesus doing? Didn’t he know that there wasn’t any hope?
Jesus probed the heart and mind of the blind beggar and discovered hope that no one else could see. He asked a simple question. “What do you want me to do for you?” What are your expectations? After all, it doesn’t matter what all these people think and expect. It’s your expectations that count.
The man said, “Lord, I want to see.”
Jesus said, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you,” and instantly the man received his sight.
Jesus didn’t say, “My faith has healed you.” He made it clear that it was the beggar’s faith, his positive expectations that made the miracle come to pass.
In the past two-thousand years some things remain unchanged. The crowd still tries to shout us down and shut us up, telling us that there is no hope. Jesus still asks the same question. “What do you want me to do for you? What are your expectations?”
The answer is still the same. It’s your faith that will heal you. It all comes down to your expectations. Faith still works miracles in your heart and mind. God makes miracles happen when positive expectations rule.
Jesus came to light the fire of hope in your heart. He came to fill your heart and mind with positive expectations. When you get in agreement with God, positive things happen. Your old life passes away, and all things become new.
What do you want God to do for you? What are your expectations?
