The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted. For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off. Proverbs 10:24; 23:18.
NOTE: Hebrews 11:1 says “Now faith is the SUBSTANCE of THINGS HOPED FOR, the evidence of things not seen”. One of the dynamic products of our faith in GOD is POSITIVE EXPECTATION. It is true that faith always incubates positive desire of the righteous (expectations).
Hope is defined by someone as “a positive expectation of something good happening to you”. Faith is never strong without hope. Hope for positive expectation is a powerful tonic for faith. As strong as faith is, faith is lazy, latent and indolent without positive expectation.
When GOD said let there be light, there was light to the extent that GOD said the light was good. GOD was expecting nothing but what HE called into existence to happen. So, When we pray, for ourselves, Organizations, Nigeria and every true ministries of GOD all around the World at large…Oh! we are required to exhibit positive expectation because Jesus CHRIST said in Matthew 7: 7-8 “Ask and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh, receiveth and he that seeketh, findeth and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”
Remember, Elijah was praying for rain to fall, he sent his servant to go and check. He was expecting nothing but rain. And when the servant said there was something like a small hand in the cloud, Elijah announced that torrential rain was going to fall. Yes, Expectation of the righteous has always been the womb for manifestation in the scriptures. If you get and remain righteous, pray, look unto HIM and you will be lightened and your faces will not express shame. Peace be unto You!
