In HIS Presence


Read: HEBREWS 11:1–40

Meditation verse:

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see” (Hebrews 11:1, NIV).


What is your expectation for this day? What are your expectations for your life? James 4:2 says, you do not have because you do not ask. When you expect nothing from today, you will get nothing. If you expect nothing in life, you get nothing. The desire of the righteous will be granted (Proverbs 10:24). Note that it says desires. As a child of God, your expectations ought to be based on what God has promised you in His word.

He said He will make you the head and not the tail (Deuteronomy 28:13). Do you expect to be great in life or are you wallowing in mediocrity?

He says the plans He has for your future are plans to prosper you and give you hope, not to harm you. (Jeremiah 29:11). Are you looking towards your future with excitement or are you in dread of what it holds for you?

He says by His stripes you are healed (Isaiah 53:5). Do you believe that you can experience wholeness and complete wellbeing or are you constantly afraid that something will go wrong with your health?

He says that not one of you shall lack their mate (Isaiah 34:16). Do you believe that you will find your life partner and experience marital bliss or are you worried that you would remain single all your life?

He says that none shall be barren in the land (Exodus 23:26). Do you expect to be fruitful in every area of life or are you battling with barrenness in an area?

God’s plan for you are plans of good and not of evil. He says, “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him” (Matthew 7:11).

So, expect the best from your Father in heaven and the best will come to you.


IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest.

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:

Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.

I look forward to hearing from you.
