Mark 11:13-14; 20-21
Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. Then he said to the tree, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard him say it.

In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots.  Peter remembered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!”

Jesus spoke to that fig tree, He cursed it and commanded it to never bear fruit.  It didn't look like anything was happening to that tree at the moment, but the next day when they walked by they saw that the tree had withered up FROM THE ROOTS! 
The moment Jesus spoke that tree died, they didn't see it, but that doesn't mean it wasn't happening! 
The next day when Peter saw it he acted surprised.  Will you be surprised when you see what God spoke come to light in your life?  
Don't be!  Have an attitude of expectation!
Jesus said through His word that you are the head and not the tail!  You are blessed and highly favored!  You are healed by His stripes, forgiven and redeemed!  
You may not see it, but we are called to walk by FAITH and NOT by SIGHT! 
That tree withered from the ROOTS.  You couldn't see it happening, but what Jesus spoke to that tree was immediately put into effect.  The next day it became evident! 
Be expectant that what the Word says WILL COME TO PASS.  Walk by FAITH.  Believe what the Word says.
WE WILL see the goodness of God in the land of the living!  I expect to experience His goodness today.  He is faithful and what He promised WILL come to pass.  
Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord will all of your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him and He will make your paths straight." 
You don't have to understand it, just trust God!  Trust His word!  Be expectant, He has GOOD things for you today!
