Confident Hope


July 11

I have a Father, Almighty Father, He is king of kings, Lord of lords I have a Father. Beloved do you have a Father? Yes, I have a Father, Almighty Father, He is King of kings; Lord of lords, I have a Father.// Praising the Lord always x2 Praising the Lord always, praising the Lord with all my heart, praising the Lord with all my heart always, alleluia.

Heavenly Father, we are here again in Your presence today Thank You for the gift another week, blessed day, You have made and we shall rejoice and be glad in it. Father, we Thank You, we honour You, we glorify Name forever and ever. O Lord our God, Your children are saying Lord “You are worthy”. Is there anything difficulty for God to do?

My God is everlasting God, His right Hand does might deed in the lives of those that place their hope in Him. He faileth not, He will never fail us; neither will forget His own. Glorious God have Your way again today and do that which only You can do in our lives in Jesus Name.

Beloveth, welcome to another glorious time in the presence of our Father. We will experience Him afresh like never before. Yours is to believe and position yourself for His touch when He passes you by. Bestir yourself as faith cometh by hearing and reading the Word of God. Praise the Lord someone!

Beloved, what engenders Kindness? Every act of kindness I have come across is born out selflessness. Aside God has the ability to do all things, any man who goes out his way to show kindness is inspire by a higher power than Him. Such an individual often times has crucified their flesh that it respond to what God wants and as such will be a great instrument in the hand of His Creator, God Almighty.

God loves us so much that He gave His best to us. therefore the man who will dares to live like God must have the confident that if it God’s command to be kind, even the little he has will be multiplied as he extend his seeming last to someone in dare need of what he possesses. Praise the Lord.

The widow of Zarephath had a little oil and flour when the prophet Elijah came knocking at her door for an act of kindness. She chose to believe the man of God and obey what she was told and that is the breakthrough she must have prayed for but never knew how it will come to pass since there was a drought in the land. But this act, firstly- obedience, seconded by kindness miraculously supplied her flour and oil according the Word of Lord as was spoken by Elijah.

That same miracle is up for grab this time. Your act of kindness this month will open a door unto you that no one, not devil or his cohorts will be able to close in Jesus Name. Be obedient to the Word in season and see heaven taking over your case and making it first on the agenda of God in Jesus Name.

I am believing God that you and I will further secure our dominion by the several acts of kindness God will be bringing our way this month in Jesus Name.

However, the topic of today is to build us up as we steady look upon Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Let us therefore come to Him with the confident hope that can only be secure in Him and not in what we have or have not.

Beloved, there may also be many other areas you are trusting God and my prayer that today’s message will address it in Jesus Name. Come along with me for I can’t any wait any longer to get into this revelation:

Let us hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.—Hebrews 10:23

Hope in the Christian’s life is not wishful thinking. It is confident expectation. Those without Christ may wish things were different and wish they knew someone who could change their situations. The Christian is personally related to the Lord of the universe, who is sovereign not only over all creation but also over every circumstance we experience. We can live with confidence because our hope is in One who is faithful.

When God speaks, He stands by His word to see that it comes to pass (Isa. 55:11). When God speaks a word to you, trust Him completely, for God never deceives His children. If God has indicated to you that He is going to do something, you can be absolutely confident that He will do it.

Do you wonder why unrighteous people seem to prosper while righteous people suffer? Jesus promised that each would eventually receive a just reward (Luke 16:19–31). Do you wonder if all the effort you have put into training your children in God’s ways will bear fruit when they become adults? God promised it would (Prov. 22:6). Do you wonder if the things you renounced when you became a Christian will be replaced by God’s blessings? Jesus assured us we would receive a hundred times as much (Mark 10:29–30). Do you doubt that Jesus will return and join us with those who have already died? Scripture indicates this certainty (1 Thess. 4:13–18).

Our hope is not mere speculation in what God might do. God has given His word on many areas of life regarding things He will do. We can have confident hope in everything that He has promised.

Yes that is our confident that when we have done our part here we will have our Father welcoming us at the other end.

Beloved, the next message before us is a very interesting one. Sometimes, we receive instruction from the Lord that paralyzes our little faith. We want yearn, we jitter, we are afraid to go ahead with the instruction heaven is giving us to do. You don’t need to be afraid, you are not alone in it. Prophet Jeremiah was faced with same.

But we need to discover what he did together:

“Ah Lord God, behold, Thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for Thee.” Jeremiah 32:17

At the very time when the Chaldeans surrounded Jerusalem, and when the sword, famine and pestilence had desolated the land, Jeremiah was commanded by God to purchase a field, and have the deed of transfer legally sealed and witnessed.

This was a strange purchase for a rational man to make. Prudence could not justify it, for it was buying with scarcely a probability that the person purchasing could ever enjoy the possession. But it was enough for Jeremiah that his God had bidden him, for well he knew that God will be justified of all His children.

He reasoned thus: “Ah, Lord God! Thou canst make this plot of ground of use to me; Thou canst rid this land of these oppressors; Thou canst make me yet sit under my vine and my fig-tree in the heritage which I have bought; for Thou didst make the heavens and the earth, and there is nothing too hard for Thee.”

This gave a majesty to the early saints, that they dared to do at God’s command things which carnal reason would condemn. Whether it be a Noah who is to build a ship on dry land, an Abraham who is to offer up his only son, or a Moses who is to despise the treasures of Egypt, or a Joshua who is to besiege Jericho seven days, using no weapons but the blasts of rams’ horns, they all act upon God’s command, contrary to the dictates of carnal reason; and the Lord gives them a rich reward as the result of their obedient faith.

Would to God we had in the religion of these modern times a more potent infusion of this heroic faith in God. If we would venture more upon the naked promise of God, we should enter a world of wonders to which as yet we are strangers.

 Let Jeremiah’s place of confidence be ours—nothing is too hard for the God that created the heavens and the earth.

On this note dear beloved, we set the ball rolling this morning. I believe God of heaven and earth will see us through as we obey His command in Jesus Name (1Pet 2:6).

This week is declared blessed in Jesus Name. Go and come back with testimonies by the end of the week in the Name of Jesus.

Remain blessed in Jesus Name.
