Thursday 5th October, Today’s Article: Expect Good Things Everyday


And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man (Luke 2:52).

There’re people who don’t expect good outcomes in their lives. They’re so used to struggling, suffering and seeing failure and stagnation that they never expect more. They never expect that their lives could be better. They haven’t learnt to expect favours; they haven’t learnt to take advantage of the grace and glory of God available to all who are in Christ Jesus.

Our opening scripture tells us how Jesus increased in wisdom, increased in stature and also in favour with God and with man. Some people have increased only in stature without increasing in wisdom and favour. Don’t just be satisfied to grow in stature; grow in wisdom and favour. Always affirm, “I’m increasing in favour!”

Yes! Become expectant that God is favouring you. Expect that favour is being channelled towards you from God and men. Expect to always walk into divine opportunities. It’s good to work hard, but remember what the Bible says, “Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God” (2 Corinthians 3:5).

Moreover, the Bible says not of works lest any man should boast (Ephesians 2:9); it’s not about your hard work but by the grace of God. So, always be in a state of expectancy with God; expect good things because you’re a child of God and a child of grace. His grace is superabundant upon your life.

Expect blessings every day. The Bible says He daily loads us with benefits (Psalm 68:19); He does it every day. Psalm 33:5 says, “…the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.” Who’s the goodness for? It’s for you! So expect good things every day. Make continual proclamations of the favour of God working in your life.


My faith is alive and working, ever ready to receive, and always expecting good outcomes. I walk into divine favour and opportunities today. I’m conscious that God loves to always prosper me and delights in doing good things for me. I’m conscious that I’m walking in the blessings of Abraham. Amen.

  1. I love the title of this post, “EXPECT GOOD THINGS EVERY DAY”. It is such a positive and uplifting message. I believe that we should all expect good things in our lives, because God is good and He wants good things for us.

    The Bible is full of verses about God’s goodness. In Psalm 33:5, it says, “The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.” This means that God’s goodness is everywhere, and it is available to all of us.

    In Luke 2:52, it says that Jesus “increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” This verse shows us that God is interested in every aspect of our lives. He wants us to grow in wisdom, stature, and favor.

    When we expect good things, we are opening ourselves up to receive God’s blessings. We are also demonstrating our faith in Him. When we believe that God is good and that He has good things in store for us, it shows that we trust Him.

    So, how can we expect good things every day? Here are a few tips:

    Start each day with a prayer of gratitude. Thank God for all the good things in your life, big or small.
    Read the Bible and meditate on God’s Word. The Bible is full of promises of God’s goodness and faithfulness.
    Spend time with other believers who have a positive outlook on life. The people we surround ourselves with can have a big impact on our own attitude and expectations.
    Be specific about what you are expecting from God. Write down your prayers and goals, and then take some time each day to visualize yourself achieving them.
    Don’t give up. Even if things don’t happen exactly as you planned, keep believing that God is good and that He has a good plan for your life.
    I encourage you to expect good things every day. God loves you and He wants good things for you. Believe it, and you will receive it!
