Today I'm going to share an inspiring instance of God's faithfulness to His promise which we should all be abundantly thankful for. As Christians, we don't receive from God because we are so good and perfect, but rather we receive from Him because we put our faith to work and it works. Therefore, I believe that every Christian needs to be reminded of the importance of exercising their faith in the Lord whenever they have an expectation and they must learn to develop a consciousness that they have the right to receive the best from God because they are Christians and God's own children.

Reference: Hebrews 11:11 English Standard Version (ESV) "By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had promised."

It was by faith that Sarah who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered faithful, the God who had made the promise. This means that her strength and ability to conceive at that age were owing to faith. Indeed, nothing can render God's promises more certain than the power to conceive anything by faith. This is the power of God that attends to our faith in weighty matters or indepth concerns that are seriously important to us.

Since Sarah's action of conceiving a child was entirely based on faith, we must take the matters of faith seriously and often give thanks for our salvation and faith in Christ Jesus. Believe me, it was nothing but her faith because having past childbearing age, there was no hope for her conception from the human standpoint. God is faithful to His promises and that is absolutely true but He will not do anything He promised without our faith. So the certainty that God will deliver what He has promised us entirely depends on the efficacy of our faith. Notice that by faith, Sarah considered God faithful since He had promised.

For the righteous, the Bible says, "Surely there is a future [and a reward], And your hope and expectation will not be cut off" (Proverbs 23:18 AMP). When we believe God to deliver our expectations, we must keep demonstrating our faith concerning our desires, both verbally and action-wise. But when we are uncertain about something God has promised, we automatically begin to respond with doubt due to thoughts of unbelief. So the attitude towards receiving anything from God is to ask in faith because asking in faith is being totally dependent on God. No wonder James 1:6-8 says, "But he must ask in faith without doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed around by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord, since he is a double-minded individual, unstable in all his ways" (NET).

The desire you are expecting is already fulfilled in Christ, but God requires you to visualize it, believe it and act like it until it becomes so visible to you in the natural realm, with the consciousness that its yours. Such consciousness is sourced from the divine possibilities embedded in the Word of God and it is validated and established by your corresponding confessions. Remember that Job 22:28 says, "You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways" (NKJV). Stay tuned for part 2. Shalom!

Scripture Reading - Jeremiah 29:11; Proverbs 10:28; Romans 8:25; Proverbs 24:14; Hebrews 11:1.

Exuberant Declaration: God is always faithful to deliver my earnest expectation and hope, such that I will not be put to shame in anything. As I continually build my faith with the Word and put it to work, I receive the power to possess my desired inheritance in line with the will of God for me. Glory to God!
