“Expect blessings NOW!”

Hello friends! It’s been almost a month since my last post; and I have my reasons for the delay. Let’s just say that I’m still in prayer about sharing my testimony. Nonetheless! I wanted to share a message from Joel Osteen Ministries that is perfect for this in-between time. I hope it encourages you!

Today is a new day — and a new day is a new opportunity for God to do something amazing in your life.

You don’t have to wait for tomorrow, for next week, for next month or for next year…

Favor, blessings, healing, breakthrough, increase — they’re all available to you today.
Many times we only have future faith. We believe one day in the future we’ll get a good break. One day in the future we’ll start to feel better. One day in the future the problem will turn around.

It’s good to have faith for the future, but you can become so future-minded you lose sight of the fact that God wants to do something great in your life today.

Today, God wants to show you His favor. Today, God wants to amaze you with His goodness. Today, God wants to provide for your every need.

In the scriptures God is called “The Great I Am,” not “The Great I Was” or “The Great I Will Be.” God is with you in the present…right now.

2 Corinthians 6:2 (NIV) says,
“Now is the time of God’s favor.”

Notice it doesn’t say next week, next month or 20 years from now. No, now is the time God wants to amaze you with His goodness. I like to call it “now faith.”

“Now faith” creates expectancy in your heart. It causes you to go out each day thinking, I can’t wait to see what God is going to do today! Today could be the day for my breakthrough!

Expectancy is powerful in the life of the believer because:

God meets you at the level of your expectation.
When you have this now faith and you go through your day with expectancy, you will see God show up in amazing ways.

The key is this: while you’re waiting, wait with expectancy — believe in your heart that God can make it happen today!

The scripture says that faith pleases God (see Hebrews 11:6). When you begin to have a mindset of now faith, the Most High God takes notice. He will pour out blessings in your life in amazing and unprecedented ways.

God wants to do something amazing in your life today. You don’t have to wait for some time in the future. God is with you right now — now is the time of His favor.
