EXPECT A POSITIVE CHANGE
You should always expect a positive change. Do you really expect a positive change? We should all truly believe God for a positive change. James 2:23-24 says And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God. You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.
Believing God for all things brings down the anointing of the Holy Spirit. That anointing comes with revelation, wisdom, understanding and ultimately victory or positive change in all things. 1 John 2:20 says but you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. Righteousness starts from believing God for all things. Psalms 45:7 says You love righteousness and hate wickedness; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions. The anointing of the Holy Spirit gives us the ability to accomplish the impossible.
Believing God is faith at work which produces righteousness and Righteousness attracts the anointing from God which makes all things possible. Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes” (Mark 9:23)
· The anointing of the Lord brings positive change.
· Positive change is not an option but a certainty when you believe God.
· Change is inevitable. Change is a constant orchestrated by a constant God. “For I am the Lord, I do not change; Therefore, you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob (Malachi 3:6). Hebrews 13:8 says Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
· We should always be expectant for positive change. Expectation is an act of faith, confidence, and assurance that your hope will not be dashed.
Since change is inevitable and must surely come, knowing you are blessed and have been transformed to become a blessing and an agent of transformation, your obligation is to provoke a positive change for yourself and for your neighbor by seeking the purpose and plan of God in the kingdom agenda.
The Story of Hannah 1st Samuel 1:11-18
The first thing Hannah realized was that God remains the same, he has never changed and will never change. She knew that despite her apparent bareness, God still loves her and remains faithful.
She therefore realized that all she had to do was to align with the desire of the all-powerful, all knowing eternal God. Hannah simply aligned her desire with Gods desire and became expectant. If you are truly expectant for a positive change, some visible changes occur from within:
(1) the perception of your situation changes
(2) your countenance and attitude changes
(3) your actions and reactions changes
Hannah’s Perception Changed
Taking a cue from Hannah, her first reaction to her situation was prayer and God answered immediately. She got an impression in her spirit of what she needed to do. A positive change occurred within her and her perception changed. 1 Samuel 1:10-11 says And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the Lord and wept in anguish. Then she made a vow and said, “O Lord of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head.”
Hannah's Attitude and Countenance Changed
Hannah's prayer changed from petition to thanksgiving when she received a confirmation. She stopped fasting and started rejoicing. Then Eli answered and said, “Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him.” And she said, “Let your maidservant find favor in your sight.” So, the woman went her way and ate, and her face was no longer sad (1 Samuel 1:17-18)
Hannah’s Action and Reaction Changed
As she continued rejoicing she put her faith into action and the Lord remembered her. Faith without works is dead. Faith without action results in no positive change. 1 Samuel 1:19-20 says Then they rose early in the morning and worshiped before the Lord, and returned and came to their house at Ramah. And Elkanah knew Hannah his wife, and the Lord remembered her. So it came to pass in the process of time that Hannah conceived and bore a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, “Because I have asked for him from the Lord.”
Positive change starts from a positive change in your perception before your attitude and actions align with Gods purpose and Expectations for your miracle. We need to hear God.
Prayer: “Father, reveal Your kingdom plan to me at this time, reveal to me what I need to give, what I need to do at this very moment that your name be glorified and that the desire of my heart be granted in Jesus name.”
It is one thing to expectant it's another thing to expect what's best for you. This is why our expectations always become pleasant surprises because we have a God who has the ability to do and is always willing to exceed our expectations. In 1st Samuel 2:21 Hannah had a pleasant surprise because she had 3 more sons and 2 more daughters after Samuel. God always does exceeding and abundantly above what we can ask or think according to His limitless power that works in us (Ephesians 3:20).
In summary, Positive Change is inevitable when you connect with the Lords plan and purpose around you. For example, the Trinity Towers is obviously a work of God for the end-times. Are you connected? The workers of the city of David alone are sufficient to build the structure either directly joining Project 4.8 or indirectly by inviting people to join Project 4.8. There is always a time and a season to connect with Gods plan and purpose that will bring your positive change.
In the fullness of time as similar to Hannah's testimony, your testimony will be: When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, “the Lord has done great things for them.” The Lord has done great things for us, and we are glad” (Psalm 126)
Prayer: “Father this month give me a positive change that will make me a living testimony because I am identified with you. Give me a new song for your name's sake.”
Psalms 103:5 says Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
Psalms 81:10 says I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt; Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
Prayer: Numbers 23:19 says “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
Father, in the name of Jesus, before the end of this month, I expect a positive change. I receive a positive change because I know all things are working together for my good in Jesus mighty name.
