For the non Nigerians reading this, expo is a term used to refer to cheat codes in an examination. For example, if you take a sheet of paper containing answers into the examination hall to use, then you are trying expo.
Do you know that God gives expo to His children occasionally? Yes, God tells His children secrets like what topics the question will be taken from, so that they will only read the necessary ones. The Holy Spirit also whispers into their ears what they have previously and forgotten in the exam hall.
If you want to be a partaker of this expo, then you need to involve Him in your exam preparations. Pray before you start reading. Pray on your exam timetable. Ask Him to teach you how to answer the questions in the exams hall. God is not a gate crasher. If you don’t invite Him to help you, He will not force Himself in you.
God wants His children to excel, so He gives them divine assistance occasionally.
1 My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Now hear me while I pray,
Take all my guilt away,
Oh, let me from this day
Be wholly Thine!
2 May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,
My zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me,
Oh, may my love to Thee
Pure, warm and changeless be,
A living fire!
3 While life’s dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,
Be Thou my guide;
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow’s tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside.
4 When ends life’s transient dream,
When death’s cold sullen stream
Shall o’er me roll;
Blest Savior, then, in love,
Fear and distrust remove;
Oh, bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul.
