your hope wholly and unchangeably on the grace (divine favor) that is
coming to you when Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is revealed.”|
(1 Peter 1:13, AMP)
|Set Your Hope|
When we set our hope on God, we set our lives in the right direction. One translation of this verse says, “Look forward to more and more of God’s favor.” God wants to pour out His goodness and grace on you. He wants to help you get ahead in this life. He wants to lead you to the right job. He wants to lead you to the right relationship. But here’s the key: we have to be on the lookout for more of God’s favor. That tells me that we can’t get stagnant.
Today, meditate on the truth that God wants to do more than you can even ask or think. It says in Ephesians that He wants to show us the immeasurable, limitless, surpassing greatness of His free favor. In other words, God wants to go far and above what we’re used to! He wants to show you favor in unusual and extraordinary ways. Set your hopes higher today and increase your expectations of what God will do in your life!
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Father, thank You for Your increase in every area of my life today. I choose to set my hope in You knowing that You want to do more in my life than I can ever imagine. Teach me to be a vessel used by You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”|
