“Where there is no faith for the future, there is no power for the present. Wake up every day with the hope that your tomorrow will be better than today!”
The power to pray and fast will not come if you do not envision that better things and a better situation, than the one you are in right now, is up ahead. It does not matter what you have or are passing through today, you must believe that your best days are ahead of you.
Faith for the future is necessary for the power for the present. At this point, stop and ask yourself “WHAT IS THE END OF MY FAITH?” This faith many claim they have, what does the Scriptures say about its end?
“Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you.”
The end of our faith is SALVATION. God has spoken about our future since long ago, and He said it shall end with salvation. Salvation is a full package of good things! Following this scripture and what is written in Jer. 29:11, this simply tells us that our end will be beautiful and our future will be colourful and filled with good things! What you are going through right now cannot be compared to the glory up ahead; you are going somewhere to be good! Our God is a deliverer, He delivered Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego – our end is salvation!
See your tomorrow by faith, then you can live your present by power – that is how to live! When you live like that, GRACE becomes available!
Every day, whether we choose to admit it or not, we see the goodness of God – the goodness of still being alive, of provision, of safety – and we need to know that there is more where all that came from! Believe that MORE will follow! Do not let what you are going through depress or describe you! Say to Him “Father, I thank you for what I’ve received today, but I also believe more is coming!” Say this every day, and then be on the lookout like someone who is expectant of more!
Say this prayer with me right now, “Lord, I feel and see the beautiful future you have planned for me. I know that one day this year is coming for me, I will dance and not stop dancing. I will not be able to stop talking about the goodness you have brought my way. The grace to hope for a better future, I receive from you today in Jesus’ name. the power for daily living, I pray you bestow upon me today Lord in Jesus’ name. Thank you, Father. AMEN”
