Word for Today:There is power in expectation.
Ministry of the Word : True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off” ( Proverbs 23:18).
We thank God for JESUS, the power of God and the wisdom of God (1Cor 1:24). All things were created by him, and for him(Col 1:16).
Brethren, the Word says the expectations of righteousness shall not be cut off. When you wake up in the morning, what are your expectations for the day? Many people, Christians and non Christians, often wake up expecting the new day to be ordinary. Many people wake up expecting nothing for the day. If you expect nothing, you get nothing!
Every morning when you get up in the morning, do you expect a great day? Do you expect God to use you and the children His has given you for signs and wonders ( Isaiah 8:18)? Do you expect to overcome all challenges through Him who love you (Phil 4:13)? Do you expect to overcome the devil and his cohorts by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony (Revelation 12:11)? Do you expect every good and perfect gift from God ( James 1:17). Do you expect God to arise in Christ Jesus and let all His enemies be scattered (Psalm 68:1)?
Remember in life, we reap what we sow. If we sow righteousness, we reap righteousness. If we sow mercy, we reap mercy. Whether the wicked person likes it or not, the expectation of the wicked is destruction. The harvest is always greater than the seed. Brother Paul says: “But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully” (2Cor 9:6).
Every day, I expect you to “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee” (Isaiah 60:1).
In Christ Jesus, you are the son of the Most high God. The Psalmist, king David had this revelation long before Jesus was manifested on earth: “have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High” (Psalm 82:6).
Please, wake up and start every day with great expectations. Expect goodness and mercy to follow you daily. Always be grateful to God for His grace to mankind.
Thank you Jesus, the grace of God to a fallen humanity:
“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men” (Titus 2:11).
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Father, please give us the grace of high & great expectations as we follow the goodness in the word of God, in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
