Faithful in Unrighteous Mammon

Luke 16:11 (KJV) If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?

Ekene worked in his boss’s shop as an apprentice. He often added to the price of the goods sold and stole from his boss to make some extra money. He did this throughout his apprenticeship and was never caught. After finishing his apprenticeship, he started his own business, but he never prospered. Frustrated, he sought help from his pastor. By prophecy, his pastor revealed how he had been an unfaithful apprentice and told him what to do if he wanted his situation to change.


Luke 16:12 (KJV): And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own?

Before God commits true riches to your hands, He will first test your faithfulness with the unrighteous mammon (money). For Ekene, he had to work under a boss. For you, it may involve managing the finances of a small group such as a church, family, or even your personal earnings—examples include tithing, offering, giving to others, and how you spend money. When you are unfaithful with the little at hand, you will not receive the much that is desired.

Luke 16:10 (KJV): He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

If you desire the true riches of the kingdom, you must learn to be faithful in the unrighteous mammon (money). Except you are found trustworthy, God will not entrust you with the riches of His kingdom, which includes earthly wealth.

Go into today knowing that God is willing to give you true riches. However, you must forsake all unrighteous ways of seeking money.

Prayer: Lord, help me walk in Your true riches and live above all limitations. Amen.

The Fear of The Lord

Philippians 2:12 (KJV) Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

One of the most painful things is having to deal with believers who have no integrity. Some so-called believers are outright frauds, yet they profess the name of Christ and are even prominent members of large church congregations. Many professing believers now walk unrepentantly in iniquity, claiming they are under grace. What a delusion!

Because of this, the name of our Lord is blasphemed among unbelievers (Romans 2:24). It is becoming harder for people who reason critically to come to the light of Christ because of the filthy shadow cast by lukewarm believers everywhere.

Growing up as a child, I remember that the church in my country was not as wealthy and large as it is today, but it was much more powerful. True conversions, even among the biggest antagonists, were commonplace. The name of the Lord was more revered and honored, even in the media. No comedians dared mention the name of the Lord or make a caricature of His ministers—something that has become too common today.

But things changed along the way, and now everyone feels comfortable in church with unrepentant hearts. The fear of the Lord was skillfully and gradually removed from the Christian creed. Suddenly, believers no longer walked in the fear of the Lord. Foolishness became celebrated in the organized church as politicians known for corruption were given titles in the church. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 9:10). To fear the Lord less and less is the beginning of foolishness.

Some argue that believers should not fear the Lord but only have 'reverential awe' because He is our heavenly Father. They claim that today's Bible verse was not properly translated, suggesting we are to work out our salvation with 'reverential awe,' not fear. The problem with this view is that reverential awe does not invoke trembling. But the verse clearly says, "work out your salvation with fear and trembling." Whatever awaits believers who do not obey this command is something that should be terribly feared and dreaded by anyone.

It is time for the fear of God to return to His people everywhere because when God comes to judge the world, judgment will begin at the household of God (1 Peter 4:17). May we not be found wanting. May we not be cast away after laboring in God's house.

Go into today praying with this verse:
1 Corinthians 9:27 (KJV): But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Lay Hold On Eternal Life

Hebrews 2:1 (NET): Therefore we must pay closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.

Nonye had believed in the Lord since her time on campus, but now it seemed her faith was waning. Years ago, she believed in divine healing, experienced it, and even ministered it to others. However, she was now doubting if she could be healed supernaturally. Determined not to let her faith fade, she decided to "fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life" (1 Timothy 6:12). She resolved to be more intentional about her spiritual growth.

Nonye took a break and went on a three-day retreat, dedicating her time to prayer and reading faith-building books—the same ones she used to read ten years ago when she was spiritually on fire. During the retreat, her faith was rekindled, and she started walking at a higher level of faith. She became so engrossed in God's Word that she forgot to worry about the disease troubling her. Many days passed, and she realized she was now totally healed.

The kingdom of God allows for a forceful approach, and the determined take it by force (see Matthew 11:12). Often, if believers are not deliberate and intentional about their spiritual growth, they may find their faith waning and themselves being cheated by the devil daily.

Naturally, after we have learned and understood something, we tend to set it aside and move on to the next new thing. However, this is not how the word of faith should be handled. We must pay closer attention to what we have heard before so that it does not slip away (Hebrews 2:1). Every word that has ever become Rhema to you should be your daily bread, not an occasional menu.

Go into today remembering to fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on the realities of your divine (eternal) life daily. Remember that our weapon is the word of God (see Ephesians 6:17).

Prayer: Dear Lord, please help me walk in an increasing measure of Your grace daily. Amen.

Prioritizing God's Word

Hebrews 2:3-4 (KJV) How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?

From when he was a child, Julius knew that there was a call of God upon his life to become a minister of the gospel. After receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit, certain remarkable spiritual gifts became evident in his life. As he gave himself steadfastly to prayer and fasting, these spiritual gifts grew stronger. Unfortunately, Julius did not devote himself much to the ministry of the Word.

When he felt the time had come to launch into ministry, he started prayer meetings and gathered large crowds because of the spectacular spiritual gifts in his life. The ministry was built on his spiritual gifts and not the Word. Because he had no substantial word to teach the people, he was always under pressure to demonstrate spiritual gifts, even when the Spirit was not moving. As a result, he eventually resorted to gimmicks and tricks to meet the expectations of the insatiable crowd.

Julius missed it in ministry because he failed to realize that signs and wonders, miracles, and gifts of the Spirit are given by God as a confirmation of our witness for Christ. Witnesses for Christ bear the message of the gospel accurately.

Signs and wonders are a confirmation by God of the message of the gospel. The message is the priority, not signs and wonders. Ministers who change this order will inevitably find themselves in the kind of mess that Julius found himself.

Go into today remembering that God gives the manifestation of the supernatural to confirm your witness of Christ. Spiritual gifts are given to confirm the message of the gospel that your life and doctrine preach. Every minister should "Study to shew [himself] approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15).

Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you serve Him accurately. Ask the Lord to help you build on the foundation of Christ and build accurately so that your work will not be burnt away on judgment day (see 1 Corinthians 3:13-15).

"Lord, help me that on that day, I will receive Your commendation, not Your rebuke. Amen."

Joseph's Bones

Broadcast 4088

Watch today's Vidoe: streamglobe.org/vid4088
Genesis 50:24-25 (NET): Then Joseph said to his brothers, “I am about to die. But God will surely come to you and lead you up from this land to the land He swore on oath to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” Joseph made the sons of Israel swear an oath. He said, “God will surely come to you. Then you must carry my bones up from this place.”


There is an assurance that God's word must birth in you, an assurance so strong that the reality of His promises becomes more real than anything else. This is God's desire for every believer.

Joseph had attained royalty in Egypt, but he never lost sight of God's promise. He told his brethren, "Surely God will come. God will lead you out of this land, and God will lead you into the land He promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob."

Anyone can follow when physical evidence abounds—the Israelites who perished in the wilderness are proof of that. They ate manna, ate quails, saw the Red Sea part, and walked on dry land in the middle of the sea, yet they never truly believed God.

Not so with Joseph. He basically said to them, "God will do what He said He will do. To show how much I believe that, take my body with you when you leave here."

Make the meditation of God's word of utmost importance. Have a posture of mind that receives God's word as an immutable revelation and not just some divine opinion. Build yourself on your most holy faith. Then you will take God's word as truth.

A man who sees God's word as truth will order his life according to God's word. The voice of God, as spoken by the Word, will be sharp and clear in his heart, even in the midst of the deafening din of this world's counsel.

Are you ordering your life according to God's word, or are you cowering to this world's counsel? Abide in God and let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me order my life according to Your truth and be fruitful in all things. Amen.

Hebrews 2:5 (KJV) For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.


After Oyemade told his brethren about the threats from the people who wanted him to join their secret cults, they prayed together and agreed that he was to continue with the political race. He was thinking of leaving the race before because he understood that we believers would still reign over this earth when the Lord returns, but when it became clearer that his major opponent was an antichrist liberal whose agenda was to implement certain antichrist liberal policies, he was emboldened to continue in the race. Two months to the election, he was having a prayer walk in his compound at night when someone appeared to him through the back fence wall. Oyemade noticed that the man that appeared to him was surprised that he wasn't afraid but rather spoke in tongues and commanded him to get out of his compound. Apparently, the man came to scare him out of the race, but Oyemade didn't give the man the benefit of even speaking before he exercised authority over him—he vanished in terror.

In spite of the opposition from the kingdom of darkness, Oyemade won the election and was able to stifle the tide of antichrist liberal policies in his city.

The reason Oyemade could win that election against the will of the prince of this world (and his principalities) was because he too was a functional prince in God's eternal kingdom and he used the superior authority of the Kingdom to conquer on the earth. Every true believer is a prince in God's kingdom, but many are not functioning in their capacity because of spiritual ignorance and laziness.

Many believers who get to the high places in this world and become overpowered fail because they do not surround themselves with the right people and the right systems. A believer representing Christ in the high places of this world (media and entertainment, big business, government, politics, etc.) must be as committed to prayer and the Word as an apostle at the forefront of missionary work in hostile places.

Daniel is a good example. He was so committed to prayer (see Daniel 6:10) that even his enemies took notice. David is another good example of a man that succeeded in fulfilling God's purposes in the high places of this world. He too was a man committed to prayer and the Word. He prayed in the evening, morning, and afternoon every day (Psalm 55:17). He prayed and meditated on God's Word at night (Psalm 119:148). He had men of God around him who were not dazzled by his earthly greatness. Nathan could bring a message of stern rebuke from the Lord to King David and he would repent (see 2 Samuel 12:1-14).

Those who would be witnesses for Christ in the high places of this world must realize that they are there for God's kingdom agenda, not for themselves. They must rid themselves of the love of money and always remember that they have the backing of God's eternal government that rules over everything.

Prayer: Lord, give me the strength to stand for you in the high places of this world. Amen.

The Eternal Government Part 1

Hebrews 2:5 (KJV) For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.

Oyemade was quite sure that he had his political game plan perfectly worked out. It was going to be easy for him to get elected as mayor of the city, even though he was a minority. As the election day was getting closer, and it was becoming clearer and clearer that Oyemade's party was going to win the election, Oyemade started getting strange invitations from people he never knew existed. Because the mayoral seat in his city was very important (his city was so strategic and important), everyone was interested in who sat on that seat. Oyemade started getting veiled threats. He started getting invitations to join "powerful" secret societies. One of his closest allies told him that "boss if you don't join them, they won't let you win this election".

The aspiration for such a great political office made it clearer to Oyemade and his brethren that indeed, the systems of this current world are ruled by Satan the prince of this world (see John 14:30, 1 John 5:19, Ephesians 6:12, 2 Corinthians 4:4).

In this current world order, if you go high enough in most systems, you would interface with the devil. He is the ruler of this present world. The only people that can truly contend his authority on this earth are the sons of God: believers in Christ Jesus who are no longer [spiritual] babes but sons. They can contend territorial authority out of the hand of the prince of this world because their Lord has received 'all authority in heaven and on earth' (see Matthew 28:18).

This current world system is under the subjection of angels. The prince of this world (Satan) is an angel (a fallen angel), and so are his principalities that rule territories in this present world. But from today's verse, we see that this will not be the case in the world to come.

One very important component of the gospel message we preach is the second coming of Jesus, the resurrection of the dead, and the coming rule and reign of Christ (with the saints) over the earth, and over all things (see 1 Corinthians 15, 6:1-3, Philippians 3:20, Revelations 21:7).

This current world system is in its last days (see Hebrews 1:1-2, Acts 2:17). The devil knows that his time is short and that all authority has now been given to Jesus who will return and take over the governments of this earth, so he is more desperate than ever. The kingdom of this world will literally become the kingdom of our God and of His Christ, and we [His saints] shall reign on the earth (Revelation 5:10, 11:15, 20:4).

Go into today remembering that the world [order] to come will not be under the subjection of angels but under the subjection of man, ruled by the man Jesus Christ. With this sure expectation in your heart, walk in this present world with the authority of Christ and remember to lay for yourself treasure that will have value in the worlds to come (Matthew 6:19-21).

Prayer: Lord, help me walk in the fullness of your plan for my life. Deliver me from the distractions of this present world that is passing away and help me fulfill your plan for my life. Amen.

What the Gospel Does

Broadcast 4085
Listen to today's audio: streamglobe.org/aud4085
Watch today's Vidoe: streamglobe.org/vid4085
Hebrews 2:3-4 (NKJV) how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him, 4 God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will?

Suzanne had a hard time discerning false prophets from true ones. She observed that some of the false prophets had become very smart by embracing 'holiness' doctrines. But she had a personal encounter with one of such holiness preachers and realized he was as greedy and filthy as the rest. She also realized that most of the false prophets were not interested in winning souls for the Lord, they were only interested in the money.

We can see from today's Bible verses that salvation was first preached by the Lord Jesus Himself, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him (His disciples who echoed His gospel). In Matthew 9:35 and Luke 8:1, we see that the Lord Jesus went to different towns and villages teaching and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom. We also see that His disciples did the same. Many wonder what gospel message Jesus and the Apostles preached since Jesus was not yet crucified? Well, Jesus preached the message of salvation. What makes a person receive eternal salvation is believing that Jesus is Lord (the Christ of God, the Messiah). Even before Jesus died on the cross, people were being saved through believing in Him. We see in Luke 19:9 that Jesus said salvation had come to the house of Zacchaeus [because he believed in Him].

Before and after His death and resurrection, believing that Jesus is Lord was the key to salvation. The resurrection was God's token proof that Jesus is Lord. The Jews crucified Him because He said He was the Christ (the Son of God, the King of the Jews). But God raised Him up on the third day as proof that He is indeed the Christ (Lord, Anointed One, the Messiah). The gospel we preach today now includes this vital truth—that God raised Jesus from the dead (see Romans 10:9).

In John 4, we are given a rare peek into the content of the gospel message that Jesus preached while He walked the streets of Israel. We see Jesus preaching to the Samaritan woman, and their conversation headed up to Him revealing to her that He is the Messiah (see John 4:25-26). The woman believed in Him and even invited others to come and see the Christ (see John 4:29).

Whether then, or when the Apostles preached, or today, the gospel message has been about bringing people to receive the Lordship of Christ Jesus. People who receive the gospel live under the Lordship of Christ. That's why they repent of their old ways that do not align with life under Christ's government.

Go into today remembering that God confirms His gospel with signs and wonders, miracles and gifts of the Spirit. The next time you want to discern whether a prophet is false or not, look at the fruits of his ministry (Matthew 7:16). Is he raising people whose allegiance is to Christ (this shows by their lives of submission to the Lordship of Christ) or is he raising people whose true allegiance is to him and to mammon?

Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me be a true minister of Your salvation. Stretch out Your hand to confirm Your word in my life with signs and wonders, miracles, and gifts of the Spirit. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Love not the world

Broadcast 4084

Watch today's Vidoe: streamglobe.org/vid4084

1 John 2:15-17 (KJV) Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
Ada believed that she loved God, but she realized that she didn't have as robust a relationship with the Lord as she needed to. She had seen her friend Linda pray simple prayers and receive instant answers from the Lord. She saw how Linda had peace in spite of any situation because of her relationship with the Lord. Ada knew that she did not have this. She later realized that even though she claimed to love the Lord, she still loved the world so much. This was the reason it appeared as though she was not known by God.

One of the many advantages of loving God is that you will be known by God (see 1 Corinthians 8:3). Of course, God knows everyone, but what 1 Corinthians 8:3 is talking about is what Linda had that Ada did not have. Some people have the Lord's ear, but most people do not. The secret is loving God.

It is impossible to love God and love the world at the same time. You can only deceive yourself that you love God if you still love the world because love for the world would always make you do things that show that you don't truly love God. A person who loves the world would love the things that are in the world. They include lust (lust of the flesh), greed (lust of the eyes), and pride (pride of life).

If a person loves lust, he would find that he would regularly disobey the Lord in that area. Ada had a boyfriend who would come and spend the weekend with her at least once every month. She knew this was wrong because she knew God did not approve, but she still loved her lust (a thing in the world).

For some, their number one pursuit in this life is material things and money. This lust motivates even their prayer discipline and spiritual practices. They do not realize that a person who truly loves God has God's kingdom as his first priority. Wealth and other things become additions to facilitate his kingdom assignment; they never become the priority of a person who truly loves God.

Pride of life is the reason people compare themselves with others and have 'sleepless nights' because they too want to be seen as successful. Living that way is too much of a burden for the soul of a man who would be productive in God's kingdom.

Go into today remembering that the love of the Father and the love of the world cannot exist together in any human heart. Ask the Holy Spirit to search you and expunge from your heart every love for the world and the things therein.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me to love you and enjoy a robust relationship with you. In Jesus' name. Amen.

The Supernatural Dimension

1 Corinthians 12:1 (WEB) Now concerning spiritual things, brothers, I don’t want you to be ignorant.

Dean had become a grandmaster in the occult. He gave himself so much to the occult because he wanted power. He thought he had power until one prayerful widow moved next door to him within the same apartment.

This woman had more power than Dean had ever seen. She was a real prayer warrior. Many times she prayed in the night, and Dean saw strange things like powerful angels whose presence terrified the demons that normally empowered him. Because she was his next-door neighbor and her presence and prayers kept terrifying and subduing him, he eventually surrendered to Christ because of her influence.

This woman could lead Dean to the Lord and effectively disciple him because she was not ignorant concerning the things of the spirit and the supernatural dimension of the faith. The first night she slept in that apartment, she discerned who Dean was in the spirit, and from then on she intentionally demobilized him spiritually. That was what ultimately led him to salvation.

She would have never been able to lead a man like Dean to the Lord if she was not exposed to the supernatural and prophetic dimension of her walk with the Lord. Revelations, spiritual gifts, angelic encounters, etc., were not strange to her.

Go into today remembering that you are more effective in life and ministry when you are not ignorant concerning spiritual things.

Prayer: Ask the Lord to guide you into all truth so that you may experience the supernatural and power dimension of His kingdom. Amen.

Praying the Will of God

1 John 5:14 (ESV) And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.

Praise was discipled by Precious and they became very close. As time passed, Praise observed that whenever Precious prayed, she received answers. Unlike her, Precious did not have to pray and fast all the time to solve a problem. She simply mentioned it to her Heavenly Father or would speak to the situation, and she always got results. When she asked Precious for the secret to this success in prayers, Precious responded: “I have learned to know and pray the will of God.”

The effectiveness of prayer is not always in how long we pray, it is not even in how pressing the need is, nor is it in how sincerely we are asking. Prayer becomes effective when God's will [that we know] becomes the basis of our prayer. Note that His will is expressed in His word.

All that you will ever need was known to God, provided by Him, and packaged in His will long before your arrival (birth) here on earth. Not living the will of God is living a failure. Jesus taught us to pray that “your (God) will be done on earth as it is in heaven.“ This should be the fulcrum of all our prayers. That was how Jesus prayed (see Matt 26:39).

Go into today determined to spend your time and energy seeking to always walk in God's will. I recommend that you read the devotionals titled 'Discerning the Will of God' again. Find out what God already said concerning your needs and ask God from that standpoint. I guarantee you will become more effective.

Prayer: Father, help me always walk in Your will. Amen.

Titus 2:11-13 (NET) For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people. It trains us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, as we wait for the happy fulfillment of our hope in the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

After Byrum believed in the Lord Jesus, he was baptized in the Holy Ghost, and as a result, was empowered by the Spirit to overcome his addictions and live a godly life. This happened because he submitted to the instructions of righteousness given to him by his pastor. He had to change his apartment because his neighbor was his drug dealer, he had to leave his old friends and totally disconnect from his old way of living. He was filled with the Spirit and was taught to stay filled. In this way, his body was empowered by the indwelling Holy Spirit (Romans 8:11) and he could cope with the withdrawal from the drugs. He spent a lot of time praying and singing in the Spirit because he needed to stay filled with the Spirit. The infilling of the Holy Spirit affects even our mortal bodies.

One of the things the grace of God would teach us is that "bad company corrupts good character" (1 Corinthians 15:33). Those who are taught by grace become very particular about the company they keep. They guard their hearts with all diligence by guarding the information they feed into it.

We saw yesterday that the grace of God trains us or teaches us how to reject ungodly ways and fleshly lusts. There are very practical things we must be willing to do in keeping with the teaching of grace. We must be willing to forsake our worldly ways and deny the flesh.

Go into today remembering that as a student of grace, you have to be willing to obey the demands of God's kingdom for your life. This is the only way to allow the divine life to excel over the old life.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, please lead me to your green pastures and help me be fed and led by your living word. Help me to live a godly and fruitful life. In Jesus' name. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi

Titus 2:11-13 (NET) For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people.  It trains us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, as we wait for the happy fulfillment of our hope in the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

When Byron accepted the Lord Jesus, he was a drug addict who had been to rehab twice. He didn't believe it was possible for him to overcome his addiction to drugs until he came in contact with the grace of God.

After accepting the gospel, he realized that he was now enrolled in God's educational system. Through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit and the ministry of the Word, he was trained to reject all his previous godless ways and to now live a self-controlled godly life. Because he was a medical doctor, he understood the physiological ramifications of his addiction, so he knew that it was the power of God that made it possible for him to be trained out of his addictions into a godly life.

Many believers talk a lot about grace but experience too little of it because they do not realize that grace empowers us to overcome sin through a training or educational process administered by the Holy Spirit and the ministry of the Word. Believers who give very little time to the learning of the Word will experience very little grace in their lives.

Today's Bible verses show us that the grace of God trains or teaches us how to reject ungodly ways and fleshly lusts; grace trains us how to live godly lives in this present world. But you cannot isolate all these from the backdrop of our blessed hope as believers. This hope is the expectation of the glory that will be revealed in us when the Lord appears. This expectation keeps us pure as we await the appearing of our God and Savior Jesus Christ (see 1 John 3:3).

Go into today remembering that the grace of God is appropriated in your life through submission to discipleship and learning. Every believer is a disciple. The word disciple means follower, student, or apprentice. Every believer in Christ is a student of grace.

Prayer: Lord, please help me know greater measures of your grace daily. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi

Romans 8:24 (KJV) "For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?"

When Sharon was a little girl, she used to be very afraid of the dark. This fear stayed with her until she became an adult. But when she accepted the Lord Jesus, she realized that she had the ability in Christ to conquer all her fears. One of the first lessons she learned was to change her expectations and align them accordingly. This was how she conquered her fears.

Sharon used to be very afraid because her native expectations were always negative. She feared the dark because unknown to her, her expectation was that bad things are bound to happen to her in the dark. This was generally her outlook on life, and she lived in so much fear. But she overcame her fears when she rearranged her expectations according to God's word and promises. She no longer expected evil to meet her in the dark because she now believed that "surely, goodness and mercy shall follow her" (Psalm 23:6).

The way the word [translated as] hope was used by the early believers is very different from the way it is used today. Hope for them was a sure expectation predicated on God's promises, not just wishful thinking.

Today's Bible verse shows us that our salvation was predicated on certain sure expectations based on God's promises.

Most of the expectations of our salvation are things pertaining to eternal life, not merely things pertaining to this temporary form of life (see 1 Corinthians 15:19). Because you are saved, you would not perish like the rest of the world but have everlasting life and rule and reign over the universe with Christ forever (John 3:16, 2 Timothy 2:12, Revelation 21:7). Because we are saved and abide in Christ, we would rule and reign with Christ over this very same earth for a thousand years when the Lord Jesus returns, and thereafter, would replace these heavens and the earth with a new one (see Revelation 20:1-6, 21:1). Because you are saved, you are empowered by the Holy Spirit to live according to God's script concerning you (see Psalm 40:7-8). You will be rewarded according to how faithful you are.

Go into today with your hope unwavering, remembering that our faith is a substance of things hoped for (Hebrews 11:1). True faith is predicated upon expectations informed by the word and promises of God.

Prayer: Ask the Lord to fill your heart with the right expectations so that you would live accurately before Him in accordance with His will.
Abraham Damilola Arigi
