Today Could Be The Day!

“Now stand here and see the great thing the LORD is about to do.” (1 Samuel 12:16 NLT)
Today’s scripture gives us hope and encouragement to begin each day with a heart of expectancy that today could be the day God is going to do something great in your life. Some days are hard to believe God is at work because of the circumstances going on in our lives. However, we are to remain in a place of faith. God calls us to walk by faith and not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7) Dwell on the things God has already done knowing He can work a miracle in your life as well.
God turned darkness into light. He raised dead men from the grave and caused them to come back to life. He healed incurable diseases. He miraculously fed a multitude when there was no food. He took nothing and made it into something. Everything God did before He can do again in a way that meets your needs and God ordained destiny.
Whatever seems dead or impossible in your life believe God for the possible. Today could be the day that phone call, or email, or the person you run into, or the letter you open in the mail could be the breakthrough you have been waiting for. It could be an unexpected blessing. It could be God doing exceedingly, abundantly above all you could ask for or imagine. Stand and see the great things the Lord is about to do.
Stand and be still knowing that He is God. (Psalm 46:10) Stand and know no eye has seen and no ear has heard nor has it entered into the heart of man all the wonderful things God has in store for your life. (1 Corinthians 2:9) God wants to blow your mind with His goodness. God wants to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all you could ask, think or imagine. (Ephesians 3:20) God is faithful. (Hebrews 10:23)
Be encouraged and declare today that your storm season is over and God is going to rain down blessings and favor over your life! Have faith and believe today that God can answer your prayer at any moment now.
“What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.” (Mark 9:23 NLT)
Be encouraged today to stand with an expectant heart as God works blessings and miracles in your life!
“Pay attention! Watch this wonder that GOD is going to perform before you now! It’s summer, as you well know, and the rainy season is over. But I’m going to pray to GOD.” (1 Samuel 12:16 The Message)
Heavenly Father, some of us have been laboring in prayer asking you to work a miracle in our life. We’ve been praying without ceasing for you to send the breakthrough we need. For some of us the days have been dark and we just want to see a gleam of hope, a sign, or a wonder, that you hear our prayers. Some of us have struggled to remain encouraged not to grow weary or give up while waiting on you. Lord in all of this we continue to stand by faith even when it seems like our blessings and answer to our prayers are on hold somewhere. Lord give us the strength to go through each day with a heart of expectancy that today could be the day we see the answer to our prayer. Give us the strength and wisdom to trust in your timing that today could be the day we see your word and the promises we have been standing on manifest themselves in our lives. Lord, we stand by faith continuing to believe that we will see your goodness on this side of heaven. We stand by faith believing the things that have hindered you from moving in our life are no more. Thank you for your grace that continues to cover us as we wait. Thank you for your mercy that forgives us when we lost hope. Lord we trust in you to answer our prayers and that you will do exceedingly, abundantly, above all we could ask you for think of or imagine. Lord we have a heart of expectancy that we will see answers to our prayers and today could very well be that day that things turn around in our favor. In Jesus name. Amen!
