He is control he is full control, Master Jesus He is control. I came to say thank You x2 all I have to say is thank You Lord. Great is Thy Faithfulness x2 Morning by morning new mercies I see, all that I need Your hand has provided, Great is Your Faithfulness Lord unto me.
Almighty Father in heaven, thank You for the gift of today. We bless You, we worship You, we honour You forever and ever. Words will fail me to appreciate You for all You have done for me. Unworthy as we are but Faithful are You Lord and Worthy are You, Lord.
Beloveth, God is so good to me, what about you? Is it same report? He is stoop down from heaven and He answers all our prayers. Weeping may endure for night but joy comes in the morning. Let us come rejoicing before the Throne and He will perfect all that concerns us. Yes! All that concerns us (Deut 7:8-11).
Who is looking up to the hill amongst us today? Listen, The Lord is your Ally. Are you surprise? Have you forgotten what He says in His Word? Sometimes, when we are humiliated by situations surrounding us, we think God has forgotten us and that causes a lot of pressure within and sometime we have despondent and in the process, we ask many unanswered questions. The topic before us today come to encourage you.
Can God be silence? Yes! He can, if you are only speaking and never listening, if You are listening but not obeying, if you are to busy to notice His presence, then His silence will bring you back to seek Him.
However, let this be your comfort, He can never be angry or silence forever. He will come quickly and be your Ally when you recognize that He is the Beginning and the End, The Alpha and the Omega, The El-Shaddia, The Omnipotent, Omniscience, Omnipresence, Him Alone is your God! Above all, when you diligently hearken and do all He has commanded you to do.
Beloved, He will fight your battle and until He silent every of your enemies, He will not be quieted. They have God to content with not you any longer but God is looking out for those are doers of His Word. Praise the Lord! To them He will not fail to be their Ally. Now, the question is Are You among those who hearkens and tremble at His Word? Let us read more from the message:
“But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.” Exod. 23:22
The Lord Christ in the midst of His people is to be acknowledged and obeyed. He is the vicegerent of God, and speaks in the Father’s name, and it is ours implicitly and immediately to do as He commands. We shall lose the promise if we disregard the precept.
To full obedience how large the blessing! The Lord enters into a league with His people, offensive and defensive. He will bless those who bless us, and curse those who curse us. God will go heart and soul with His people, and enter in deepest sympathy into their position. What a protection this affords us! We need not concern ourselves about our adversaries, when we are assured that they have become the adversaries of God. If Jehovah has taken up our quarrel we may leave the foemen in His hands.
So far as our own interest is concerned we have no enemies; but for the cause of truth and righteousness we take up arms and go forth to conflict. In this sacred war we are allied with the eternal God, and if we carefully obey the law of our Lord Jesus, He is engaged to put forth all His power on our behalf. Wherefore we fear no man.
Did you hear that? we fear no man but it is not by our strength or by our might but by the Spirit of God. Beloved, whatever be the situation, our Faithful God will not fail us neither will He forsake us but forever deliver us by His Might. Read on:
So he answered me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by strength or by might, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of Hosts.”—Zechariah 4:6
God’s word came to His people at a critical time. They were a despondent, disillusioned people who faced a daunting task. They had been exiled in Babylon for seventy years. During this time they had witnessed the strength of the most dominant military power in their world. They had watched the Babylonian army marching off to conquer other nations. They had seen the wealth and splendor of the Babylonian king. When Babylon was in turn conquered by the Persians, the Israelites saw an even greater superpower emerging on the world stage. They lost heart when they compared their own weakness and captivity with the enormous strength and wealth of the superpowers of their day.
As the Israelites returned to Jerusalem after seventy years in captivity, they found their city in ruins. Their magnificent temple had been destroyed. The city walls had been torn down. They had no resources to rebuild their splendid city. As these former refugees looked at the mammoth task before them, they realized their poverty and weakness, and they became greatly dismayed.
Then came God’s word! He promised that they would, indeed, rebuild their city. But, He told them, the rebuilding would not be accomplished by their own power and resources but by His Spirit. As long as they had God’s Spirit, they had everything they needed.
There will be times when obeying God will lead you to impossible situations. If you look at your own skills, knowledge, and resources, you will become discouraged. However, when you became a Christian, God placed His Spirit within you. You now have the resources of heaven at your disposal. The success of your endeavors will not depend on the way you use your own resources but on how you obey the Spirit of God.
Beloveth, I want to assure you that whatever is the gap in your life, our good God will fill it up. Where your power ended, the Lord will pick you up from there (read the Dec 7th devotional). I prophesy into your life “that abandoned project that weakens you each time you remember it, God will open His good treasure and you will draw from it, but you must be standing right with Him, put on righteousness as a robe.
Finally, never relay on your strength alone but trust God Who is our comfort, our Strength and Ally. Let your faith come alive again. In faith our deliverance is assured (Gal 3:26), Praise the Lord, somebody!!!!!!!!!!!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
