I will sing, I will dance, I will rejoice in the Lord my God. I will sing, I will dance, I will rejoice in the Lord my God.// Good morning Jesus good morning Lord, I know you come from heaven above the Holy Spirit is on the Throne good morning Jesus good morning Lord.

Heavenly Father, we thank You, we bless Your Holy Name, we adore Thee, for You are God and You liveth forever. Thank You for a new week, new day, a glorious moment in Your presence. Eternal Rock of Ages thank You. For Your uncountable blessings in our lives and situation. Faithful God, glory be unto Thee in Jesus Name.

Beloved, how was your weekend? Hope great? Our God is good; all the time. we are under His canopy and we are safe and secured in the blood of Jesus shed on the cross for the remission of our sins and made us whole to be accepted Him who made all things and in Him all things are possible. Praise God.

Beloved, do you want the theme of this month to be a reality in your life then get ready for do exactly what the topic of the day has to deliver.

Do you want to abide in God’s love? Then you must be willing to live in obedience as it is a demand from God to all His children. In the text before us Jesus said to His disciples to obey His commandment and they will endear themselves to His love. The love of Jesus made Him to go to the cross for you so that you will not die in sin nor in damnation but live at peace here and rest with Him eternally. Praise God.

Why do we find it difficult to obey His commandment? In Matt 7:13-14 said the narrow is the gate and straitened the way that lead to life, and few are they that find it, while verse 13b said “ broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction and many are they that enter in thereby”.

God instructed Abraham to walk leave His Father’s house to the land where He will show Him. And He obeyed Him. Abraham was seventy-five years old and when he was Ninety-nine years old, God give him another instruction “Walk before me and be thou perfect. (Gen 12:1-4; 17:1-9)

The result of his obedience led to generational blessings. Beloveth, our obedience to God’s commandment and obedience to His directions in life and ministries will not only bless us but will also lead to generational blessings.

Above all, we will continually abide in His love and blessings that will add no sorrow to us. Praise God.

The hand of the Lord will deliver us from all sorrow, sickness and pain and make us rejoice in the Lord our Saviour. It is fearful thing to fall into the hand of Almighty God. Disobedience to God has a great consequence likewise partial obedience as we see with Abraham also (Gen 12:4).

Let us make a resolve to obey God without counting cost because He will also reward, bless and honour us in return. No matter the suffering and shame of this time, Our God will do it again, He will perfect all that concerns us. Glory be to God in the Highest Whose Name alone is above All.

“If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love.” John 15:10

 

These things cannot be parted — abiding in obedience, and abiding in the love of Jesus. A life under the rule of Christ can alone prove that we are the objects of our Lord’s delight. We must keep our Lord’s command if we would bask in His love. If we live in sin we cannot live in the love of Christ. Without the holiness which pleases God, we cannot please Jesus. He who cares nothing for holiness knows nothing of the love of Jesus.

Conscious enjoyment of our Lord’s love is a delicate thing. It is far more sensitive to sin and holiness than mercury is to cold and heat. When we are tender of heart, and careful in thought, lip, and life to honor our Lord Jesus, then we receive tokens of His love without number. If we desire to perpetuate such bliss we must perpetuate holiness.

The Lord Jesus will not hide His face from us unless we hide our face from Him. Sin makes the cloud which darkens our Sun: if we will be watchfully obedient and completely consecrated, we may walk in the light, as God is in the light, and have as sure an abiding in the love of Jesus as Jesus has in the love of the Father. Here is a sweet promise with a solemn “if.” Lord, let me have this “if” in my hand; for as a key it opens this casket.

Father make us obedient to your Word so that we will be secured in your love in Jesus Name.

“Happy art thou, O Israel; who is like unto thee, O people saved by the Lord!” Deuteronomy 33:29

 

He who affirms that Christianity makes men miserable, is himself an utter stranger to it. It were strange indeed, if it made us wretched, for see to what a position it exalts us! It makes us sons of God.

Suppose you that God will give all the happiness to His enemies, and reserve all the mourning for His own family? Shall His foes have mirth and joy, and shall His home-born children inherit sorrow and wretchedness? Shall the sinner, who has no part in Christ, call himself rich in happiness, and shall we go mourning as if we were penniless beggars? No, we will rejoice in the Lord always, and glory in our inheritance, for we “have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but we have received the spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”

The rod of chastisement must rest upon us in our measure, but it worketh for us the comfortable fruits of righteousness; and therefore by the aid of the divine Comforter, we, the “people saved of the Lord,” will joy in the God of our salvation. We are married unto Christ; and shall our great Bridegroom permit His spouse to linger in constant grief?

Our hearts are knit unto Him: we are His members, and though for awhile we may suffer as our Head once suffered, yet we are even now blessed with heavenly blessings in Him. We have the earnest of our inheritance in the comforts of the Spirit, which are neither few nor small. Heritors of joy for ever, we have foretastes of our portion.

There are streaks of the light of joy to herald our eternal sunrising. Our riches are beyond the sea; our city with firm foundations lies on the other side the river; gleams of glory from the spirit-world cheer our hearts, and urge us onward. Truly is it said of us, “Happy art thou, O Israel; who is like unto thee, O people saved by the Lord?”

I am glad that I belong to Jesus. He will not make us slave but heir to His kingdom. Though we may suffer awhile here but we will be glad afterall at the end according to His promises to us. Beloved, be glad and rejoice in the Lord your Saviour.

Be determine to obey Him and follow Him wherever He may lead you. Praise God!

This week is blessed in the Name of the Lord. Go in the grace of God and His mercies and return with testimonies at the end in Jesus Name. do not buy in the lie of satan that it is over because is not over until is over. The love of God will and must see you through.

Remember, “Defeat” is not an option for every child of God.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
