March 1

Thank thanks Lord we give You thanks for all You have done, You are so good, our soul has found rest O Lord! We give You thanks. Every living soul every living soul praise the Lord 2x

Father, we come today with a grateful heart full of thanks in appreciation of Who You are and all what You have done for us since the beginning of the year. Merciful Father we come before You to honour and worship You. Faithful are You Lord. Thank You Lord for the month of January, thank You Lord for the gift of February, Lord we are rejoicing for the month of March because Your Right hand has brought us to it, therefore we shall be glad and be full with joy. Glory be to Your Holy Name.

Beloved, thank God you made it to the new month “Our month of Dominion through Joy in Christ” (Isa 35:1-10; Col 1:11-14). Beloved, He has done it all, ours is to rejoice and be glad in Him. Thank God for the Joy of Calvary. The winning victory that comes from Calvary where Jesus said that it is “finish” calls for rejoicing for every child of God.

In this  joyous Month, the first quarter of the year, we must leap forward. I see the Hand of God moving us higher than were we are now. I see laughter in the mouth of many. I see liberation coming our way. I see breakthroughs in many areas of our lives. I see many graves open and destinies are being restored, I see many with bundle of joy in their hands. I see again our Jesus the shepherd of our souls tending us in the path that we should go.

I see You child of God having dominion over all that are hindering you from moving forward. I see you dominating your territory with power and glory with the blood that was shed on the cross. Someone is being delivered of that terminal diseases. Someone is recovering all from what the enemy has stolen. So many are receiving salvation through the power of the cross. The Lord Himself is granting freedom to many that are oppressed by evil spirit. Many are being led away from their captors.

Beloved, this month is going to be full with pleasant  surprises, I see the barren with their children, I see the solitary being set up in families. Our God will yet visit us and make us to rejoice and be glad indeed. Praise the Lord!

Come with me as the Hand of the Lord will make your going out to be with joy. The Spirit of God will perform this as He gentle teach us how to live a simply and purify life. Put on your seatbelt and fully engage as this flight of joy takes you to realms of glory and rejoicing:

“And of Zebulun he said, Rejoice, Zebulun, in thy going out.” Deut. 33:18

 

The blessings of the tribes are ours; for we are the true Israel who worship God in the spirit, and have no confidence in the flesh. Zebulun is to rejoice because Jehovah will bless his “going out”; we also see a promise for ourselves lying latent in this benediction. When we go out we will look out for occasions of joy.

We go out to travel, and the providence of God is our convoy. We go out to emigrate, and the Lord is with us both on land and sea. We go out as missionaries, and Jesus saith, “Lo, I am with you unto the end of the world.” We go out day by day to our labor, and we may do so with pleasure, for God will be with us from morn till eve.

A fear sometimes creeps over us when starting, for we know not what we may meet with; but this blessing may serve us right well as a word of good cheer. As we pack up for moving, let us put this verse into our traveling trunk; let us drop it into our hearts, and keep it there; yea, let us lay it on our tongue to make us sing. Let us weigh anchor with a song, or jump into the carriage with a psalm. Let us belong to the rejoicing tribe, and in our every movement praise the Lord with joyful hearts.

Beloved, peradventure you are saying how can this be? I want to know that God is more than able and your case is nothing compare with creation. He that made the earth to be , the sun, the moon and the stars, will He not be able to make you rejoice in the midst of it all your challenges? Just know that our God is more than able.

Beloved, is possible what you need now to make your request come to past is what we are going to consider below, just fellow me as we are led by the Spirit of the Most High God’s on what we must do:

 Simplicity And Purity

One of the dilemmas you and I face is how to walk with God and keep the clutter and stuff around us from burying us alive. As a society, our fixation on ACQUIRING has reached psychotic levels.

John Wesley wrote, “The essence of Christian holiness is simplicity and purity… “

Soren Kierkegaard captured the spirit of Christian simplicity: “Purity of heart is to will one thing: God.”

Simplicity is freedom, bringing joy and balance.

Duplicity is bondage leading to anxiety and fear.”

It’s difficult to keep life simple if I have multiple passions.

Count Zinzendorf stated, “I have but one passion, it is He alone.

The test as to whether I am seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness is the lack of anxiety. (Matthew 6:25).

Following are several of Richard Foster’s principles that may help us in evaluating whether we have captured the inner essence of simplicity:

First, buy things for their usefulness rather than their status.

Second, reject anything that is producing an addiction in you.

Third, develop a habit of giving things away.

Fourth, refuse to be propagandized by the custodians of modern gadgetry.

Fifth, learn to enjoy things without owning them.

Sixth, look with a healthy skepticism at all “buy now, pay later” schemes.

Seventh, shun anything that distracts you from seeking first the kingdom of God.

Beloved, once again welcome to your month of “Dominion through Joy in Christ Jesus”.  Come on as we rejoice and be glad in the freedom wrought to us through the cross, the blood that delivered us and the resurrection that restored our stolen glory. Brethren is time to be joyful; Christ has done it (Ps 89:15-18).

Remain blessed in the Lord.
