CHANNELS OF FULLFILLMENT DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR FEBRUARY 17, 2022 (Hope for progress.)
TOPIC: Hope for progress.
TEXT: (Daniel 11 vs. 28-32)
It is mostly impossible for anyone who sees no good about himself to see good things around himself. A frustrated mind results to a stagnated destiny. When your sight is limited by the walls of disappointments you encountered, it becomes almost impossible for you to live beyond the walls of your limitation. In a world where anything happens, inclusive of good and bad favorable and unfavorable, profit and loss, God is echoing to our hearing that “Those who know their God shall be strong and do exploits”. (Daniel 11 vs. 32b). The question is, why do they still need to be strong? Why exactly is strength required? I perceive that strength is needed because the abode of man is a place of battle not just a place to exist. The man who lives outside of aim to fight and win, lives by fate willing to remain anywhere his life meets, not where his heart admires. Considering our notion of what is good and bad is sometimes fouled.
I think all of us have memories of apparently bad experiences that got us frustrated when they happened but about which we are very happy that they happened, because with hindsight we can see the huge benefits they brought in our life. There may be also events that have appeared to be very good, but afterwards it turned out there were no blessings in those events. The point is that exploits come whenever we hope for them. Anything that was not hopped for can never be coped with. The Bible speaking said, “The just shall live by faith” (Hebrew 2 vs. 4b).
To live a desired life is to live by hope. It is not necessary to consider where you are now, what you have and where you maybe or where you maybe not; those are the molecules of the elements that will compound your exploits if you actually hoped for one. The difference between two different ends of a journey is the hope of the travelers. This 2022, God almighty is planting inside us the hope for exploits if you desire for it. Dream big, dream for that vision that can wow you. Hope for that which may be hard for others to believe because that’s the only beginning exploit has. it always look impossible.
- Thank God for His word to you.
- Jesus, I request for the grace to hope for exploits.
- Father, keep my heart in a permanent state of expecting great things.
