The Oil Of Joy - Expect Goodness
29 And everyone that has forsaken houses, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
You will never receive beyond your expectation. Expectation is the place where miracles are born. I remember that I and a friend of mine decided that we will stop having expectations because they sometimes do not materialise. We did not know that it was the most foolish decision ever. Expectation is the greatest indication of our faith. It is what creates passion in our lives.It takes courage to keep our expectations in spite of all the setbacks in our lives.
In order to have a supernatural imagination we need to maintain our faith in God by believing He will do great things through us. When God gives us a dream, He shows us the end result but not the process we will go through. He does this so that He can incorporate our detours. Because in as humans we sometimes step out of the path He has set for us. Abraham had an Ishmael even though God had promised him an Isaac. But God made provision for both of them. Peter was to become the first leader of the Apostles yet along the way, he denied Jesus and also deserted the ministry to go back to fishing. Jesus told him that after he has been restored from his mistake, he should strengthen the rest. Peter was used to build a powerful church and the gates of hell couldn't prevail against. Peter was changed after the Holy Spirit came upon him and he remained in the spirit by giving himself to study of the word. Let us hold on to the promises of God upon our lives and it will come to pass.
EXPECT AMAZING THINGS EACH DAY
Prayer: Father, I thank You that as it is written, what Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man are the things which You have prepared for those that love You in Jesus Name. Amen.
HAPPY NEW YEAR: GET GOODNESS IN THE YEAR 2017
