It can only be you Father, it can only be that we love with an everlasting love not counting the cost. Thank You for counting us worthy to be naming among your own. Thank You and thank You forever in Jesus Name.

Beloved, join me to sing this song to the King of kings, Everlasting love and Mighty God. “O! Rock that never fail, let me hid in You, let me hid in You in You there is power. The Rock that never fails, let me hid in You let me hid in You in You there is mercy.”

Yse! Our God faileth not, He is God and will forever remain God till eternity. Glory be Your Name on high. Let us sing with a grateful heart unto God Who can do all, Who has help us all the month. Beloved, faithful is our God.

I want to believe that you had a blessed moment all through the month. Indeed it is a wonderful month, full with it’s up and down, blessings, healings, protection and defense. Yes! Indeed Jesus overcome the world and gave us victory, He shielded us from tribulations that the enemies brought our ways. Thank You Father for making a way of escape for us. Glorious God, We bow before Your Presence be thou exalted forever in Jesus.

What more can we say, thank You Lord for assuring us of consolation all through our challenges that we face and will ever face in life. Thank You, thank You and thank you Amen!

Beloved, we are accepted in the Jesus having died on the cross and now lives in us. What a great privilege to all Who believe in the finished work of Calvary.

Whatever you are going through beloved, hold on to God, our suffering we know is but awhile. It will never be for eternity, we will again rejoice in the Lord our God and give Him Praise for His goodness last forever. He has never change and will never change.

Thank God for being real to us according the theme of the month. He indeed consoled and brought comfort to us in the most challenging situations in life. Praise the Name of the Lord alleluia. The Hand of the Lord will truly console you by the time you go through today’s ministration (Jer 15:20, Rom 8:14, Rom 13:14) Praise God!

Let’s learn more from below:

“Accepted in the beloved.” Ephesians 1:6

 

What a state of privilege! It includes our justification before God, but the term acceptance” in the Greek means more than that. It signifies that we are the objects of divine complacence, nay, even of divine delight. How marvellous that we, worms, mortals, sinners, should be the objects of divine love! But it is only “in the beloved.”

Some Christians seem to be accepted in their own experience, at least, that is their apprehension. When their spirit is lively, and their hopes bright, they think God accepts them, for they feel so high, so heavenly-minded, so drawn above the earth! But when their souls cleave to the dust, they are the victims of the fear that they are no longer accepted.

If they could but see that all their high joys do not exalt them, and all their low despondencies do not really depress them in their Father’s sight, but that they stand accepted in One who never alters, in One who is always the beloved of God, always perfect, always without spot or wrinkle, or any such thing, how much happier they would be, and how much more they would honour the Saviour!

 Rejoice then, believer, in this: thou art accepted “in the beloved.” Thou lookest within, and thou sayest, “There is nothing acceptable here!” But look at Christ, and see if there is not everything acceptable there. Thy sins trouble thee; but God has cast thy sins behind His back, and thou art accepted in the Righteous One.

Thou hast to fight with corruption, and to wrestle with temptation, but thou art already accepted in Him who has overcome the powers of evil. The devil tempts thee; be of good cheer, he cannot destroy thee, for thou art accepted in Him who has broken Satan’s head. Know by full assurance thy glorious standing.

Even glorified souls are not more accepted than thou art. They are only accepted in heaven “in the beloved,” and thou art even now accepted in Christ after the same manner.

Glory be to God in the highest. He is indeed our consolation and comfort Praise God. Beloved the suffering of this time cannot compare the crown that awaits us at the end. Praise God. We must there workout our salvation with trembling. Glory be to His Name on high. Let nothing separate us from the love of God, let nothing stop you from making it through at last. Our is great. Praise God!

The Suffering Of The Saints

 

Suffering, it seems, is a daily occurrence among God’s people: Health problems, persecution, financial stress, etc., etc. How are we to understand it? How are we to cope? In studying 1 Peter, I discovered eleven ways we are to respond to suffering:

  1. Rejoice, recognizing your faith is being tested and purified — “In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trialsYour faithmay be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed… ” (1:6-8)

2. Do not retaliate against your tormentors — “When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats.” (2:23)

3. Follow Christ’s example in entrusting yourself to God — “Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.” (2:23b)

           4. Do not be afraid — “Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened.” (3:14b)

  1. Follow Christ’s example in suffering for doing good — “It is better, if it is Gods will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit,” (3:17, 18)
  2. Adopt Christ’s attitude toward suffering —”Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is done with sin.” (4:1)
  3. Rather than being surprised, rejoice in the fact that you are participating in Christ’s suffering — “Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.” (4:12, 13)
  4. Be unashamed in your suffering and association with Christ —”If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.” (4:15, 16)
  5. Amidst the suffering, commit yourself to God, and continue to do good — “So then, those who suffer according to Gods will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good. ( 4:19)

 10.Resist Satan, recognizing that other believers are also suffering at his hand — “Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.” (5:9, 10)

 11.Anticipate His restoration — “And the God of all graceafter you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.” (5:10)

Beloved, I believe the above ministered to your need. Do not be dismay but work out your salvation and trust God that is well with your Spirit. Remember always that He has overcome the world for you therefore live an overcomer’s life.

Be god unto every pharaoh in your life. Live a triumphant life style because you know there await a crown of glory after you have lived here on earth. Praise God. (2Cor 9:8)

Beloved, I am most blessed this month our God is indeed good and trustworthy, He faileth not and have never fail. I had a wonderful encounter all through the month most that made me strong and an overcomer indeed. What about you?

Save up this ministration and refer to it when it seems the storm is overwhelming, you will overcome by reading over and over again the goodness of God. Praise God.

Incidental the month end is conceding with our PCL teaching and I trust God that you are blessed too. Enjoy the remaining days of the month. See you next month, God’s willing.

Have a wonderful weekend. God bless us all. Christ Himself will console you do not be dismay.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
