YOUR EXPECTATION SHALL NOT BE CUT OFF

From the Shepherd's Desk by Charles Magaiza

For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off. (Proverbs 23:18 KJV)

When you become a child of God by receiving Jesus as Lord and Saviour, you are regarded a new creature. Old things are passed away and behold all things become new. This however does not mean you will not meet challenges in life.

The challenges you meet have a limited lifespan if you understand what Proverbs is showing us here. As a child of God, your expectation will not be cut off! Expectation is the breeding ground for miracles. It defies odds! It is not limited by time!

It might look like you are falling and there is no hope but expectation demands that you hold on to the word of God, declare it and meditate on it! Expectation demands that you cast all your burdens upon the Lord for He cares for you. Refuse to count the months which leads to doubting God! Just look to Him the author and finisher of your faith.

He is God of the valleys and He is God of the mountains. When you are down low, know that He can lift you high up! Today I speak to you because you might be giving up, thus says the Lord time belongs to Him. Don’t bury your head in the sand nor let fear take control of you. Lift your hands to Him and just praise Him. He is not ignorant to the cry of His children. Remember, whatever you are going through, He is not ignorant. He is walking with you in this journey.

I pray for you that your spiritual eyes may be opened to see that He that is with you is greater than the one against you.

Declare this,

Today I raise my expectation knowing that it will not be cut off. He who Has promised is able to fulfill all His promises in Jesus’ name.

GROW IN GRACE

From the Shepherd's Desk by Charles Magaiza

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen. (2 Peter 3:18)

Download audio version - From the Shepherd's Desk by Charles Magaiza

When we talk of grace, the questions that might come to mind are; how deep is it? How long? Does it have a timeframe? What does it do? What is Grace? All these questions we might not answer in this edition but from Genesis to Revelation we encounter this word Grace. In definition it simply means unmerited favour but in application it is deeper than our imagination.

The Apostle Peter in conclusion to his epistle urges us to “grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” This indicates that although God gives the initial dose of grace, it is all up to us to put an effort to grow the seed. When a seed is kept in a bottle, it remains a seed but when put in the soil and given the right conditions, it blossoms and multiplies.

You grow in grace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ by study of His word, meditation of the word and of course fellowshipping with others who may impart more in you. Grace remember as stated above is unmerited favour! It however does not mean you can abuse it. Grace used correctly opens doors, it brings more blessings and bestows honour upon the carrier of it. Those who choose to grow in it give themselves an opportunity to enjoy the best that God gives. This brings glory and honour to God as others observe your life.

Refuse to stumble as the challenges of life come, continue to meditate on His word. His grace will raise you up above those monumental challenges and as you sit with the Lord on high you will be just an observer. Personal praise and worship brings growth in grace, fellowship with Him in the word and prayer brings growth in grace.

Grace is a license to live life in abundance and bring glory to our Creator. A choice to grow in grace is a choice to partner with Him. I pray for you today that you make a choice to grow in grace and in the knowledge of Him!

Declare this,
Thank you Father for the seed of grace. I make a choice to grow in grace and in your knowledge today. Amen

IN HIS LIGHT WE SEE LIGHT

From the Shepherd's Desk by Charles Magaiza

For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light. (Psalms 36:9 KJV)

Download audio version - From the Shepherd's Desk by Charles Magaiza

Darkness is dangerous, in it you can trip and injure yourself. Jesus declared “I am the light of the world.” This means without Him, you are walking in darkness and in the hand of the enemy. You can trip any time and injure yourself or lose your life. With God is the fountain of life.

It is important to seek and pursue Him. Walk in the light and you will see His grace at work in you. The enemy loves darkness, it is his time to plant bad seeds. He can not do it in the light because Christ defeated him. In the cover of darkness he moves around.

Genesis 1 tells us that, “In the beginning…and darkness covered the earth.” The enemy was in total control. He was unhappy with the creation of the garden of Eden and God putting Adam and Eve there. It was something he had to fight against hence the deception and bringing the new creation being into darkness.

Today I urge you to open your eyes and ask the Lord to move you into His light. This is where we find light. People spend years seeking peace, it is in the light of God. When you find His light, there is the fountain of life. You need to seek Him with your whole heart. When you do so, you will find Him.

I pray for you that you move from darkness into His light. May the fountain of life flow in and through you touching others.

Declare this

Lord I thank you for unveiling the fountain of life to me. In your light I find light! I receive this light in Jesus’ name.
