Daily Meditations – Friday, August 1, 2014

Hebrews 11:1 – “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Worldly hope is just a kind of wish.
Whenever we see hope in the bible, it means there is an expectation. According to Mark 11:24, when we pray, we should believe we receive.
We should expect — not just desire — that those things come to pass. You can have a truckload of desire and no expectation.
Whatever you expect, you have faith to receive. And just as you are the one who’s going to believe you receive, you are the one who’s going to set your expectation level.

Affirmations

ONCE I HAVE IDENTIFIED THOSE THINGS I REALLY DESIRE – THEN I EXPECT BIG – I LET MY HOPE SOAR!

I SHALL HAVE THEM BECAUSE I BELIEVE (BASED ON GOD’S WORD) THAT I RECEIVE THEM.

John 20:14-16 – She glanced over her shoulder and saw someone standing behind her. It was Jesus, but she didn’t recognize him! “Why are you crying?” he asked her. “Whom are you looking for?” She thought He was the gardener. “Sir,” she said, “if you have taken Him away, tell me where you have put Him, and I will go and get Him.” “Mary!” Jesus said, She turned toward Him. “Master!” she exclaimed.

MARY LOOKED AT THE WORD.
MARY HEARD THE WORD.
BUT SHE DIDN’T KNOW THE WORD. MARY DIDN’T KNOW WHO IT WAS WHO STOOD BEFORE HER.
BUT WHEN THE WORD BECAME PERSONAL TO HER, CALLING HER BY NAME, INSTANTLY, SHE RECOGNIZED HIM.

Observation

AS I READ, STUDY, AND MEDITATE ON IT, THE WORD WILL SPEAK TO ME AND BECOME PERSONAL TO ME.
