“And David said in his heart, I shall now perish one day…”


Who is like unto Thee, O Lord, who is like unto Thee, O! Lord among the gods who is like Thee You are glorious in holiness fearful in praising doing wonders alleluia! I will lift up my voice, I will joyfully sing not for what He has done but for Who You are, You are the song that I sing, melody in my heart the reason I sing is to praise You Lord. He reigns, Jesus reigns, yes He reigns forever more, forever more.

Father in heaven o God, blessed be Thy Holy Name. Thank You for the gift life among the living. Blessed be Thy Holy Name. Almighty are You Lord! Great is Thy Faithfulness Lord. Thank You for watching over us and protecting us from the works of wicked ones.

Beloveth, good morning from the Throne of grace. How has been with you? Thanks be to Jesus who is our defense and our armour. The Lord is our strong tower we run into it and are secured.

The message before us today is coming your way to assure you that you are safe in Christ Jesus care. Whatever be it you are going through now, I want to assure you that you safe and secured in the blood of Jesus.

Beloved, are going through a difficult time? Are you afraid that the enemies will overcome you? This ministration is coming to say no to all your fears and tell you what the Lord is saying instead in that situation you are going through.

Sometime we find ourselves in situation David found himself and said in his heart, I shall now perish one day by the hand of Saul.” But that is not what is saying concerning him. God sent Prophet Samuel to anoint his head with oil as the next king of Israel but fear of what he was going through made to think that will never be.

I have these Word to share with you that “the Word of the Lord endureth forever.” “You share not be confounded.” “You shall not die but live.” “Beloved, His thought towards you are for good and not for evil to give you an expected end.” “Be still and know that I am God.” He is the Alpha and the Omega.”

I declared to you and I also lay claim to this promises that I shall not die but live to declare the Word of God to those that are yet to coming to saving grace of God. Jesus died that we may live and fulfill His mandate to us “Go yea…”.

So come along with me as we discover more from the messages therein:


“And David said in his heart, I shall now perish one day by the hand of Saul.” 1Samuel 27:1

The thought of David’s heart at this time was a false thought, because he certainly had no ground for thinking that God’s anointing him by Samuel was intended to be left as an empty unmeaning act. On no one occasion had the Lord deserted His servant; he had been placed in perilous positions very often, but not one instance had occurred in which divine interposition had not delivered him.

The trials to which he had been exposed had been varied; they had not assumed one form only, but many—yet in every case He who sent the trial had also graciously ordained a way of escape. David could not put his finger upon any entry in his diary, and say of it, “Here is evidence that the Lord will forsake me,” for the entire tenor of his past life proved the very reverse.

He should have argued from what God had done for him, that God would be his defender still. But is it not just in the same way that we doubt God’s help? Is it not mistrust without a cause? Have we ever had the shadow of a reason to doubt our Father’s goodness? Have not His lovingkindnesses been marvellous? Has He once failed to justify our trust?

Ah, no! our God has not left us at any time. We have had dark nights, but the star of love has shone forth amid the blackness; we have been in stern conflicts, but over our head He has held aloft the shield of our defence. We have gone through many trials, but never to our detriment, always to our advantage; and the conclusion from our past experience is, that He who has been with us in six troubles, will not forsake us in the seventh.

What we have known of our faithful God, proves that He will keep us to the end. Let us not, then, reason contrary to evidence. How can we ever be so ungenerous as to doubt our God?

Lord, throw down the Jezebel of our unbelief, and let the dogs devour it. And so the dogs devour all our doubts, sorrows, fear and worries in Jesus Name. And the Hand of Jesus will enthrone Jesus to reign and rule over our affairs in Jesus Name.

Jesus will gather us as He did the lambs because is the Good and Great Shepherd. Be not afraid because He knows exactly what to do:

“He shall gather the lambs with His arm.” Isaiah 40:11


Our good Shepherd has in His flock a variety of experiences, some are strong in the Lord, and others are weak in faith, but He is impartial in His care for all His sheep, and the weakest lamb is as dear to Him as the most advanced of the flock. Lambs are wont to lag behind, prone to wander, and apt to grow weary, but from all the danger of these infirmities the Shepherd protects them with His arm of power.

He finds new-born souls, like young lambs, ready to perish—He nourishes them till life becomes vigorous; He finds weak minds ready to faint and die—He consoles them and renews their strength. All the little ones He gathers, for it is not the will of our heavenly Father that one of them should perish. What a quick eye He must have to see them all! What a tender heart to care for them all!

What a far- reaching and potent arm, to gather them all! In His lifetime on earth He was a great gatherer of the weaker sort, and now that He dwells in heaven, His loving heart yearns towards the meek and contrite, the timid and feeble, the fearful and fainting here below. How gently did He gather me to Himself, to His truth, to His blood, to His love, to His church!

With what effectual grace did He compel me to come to Himself! Since my first conversion, how frequently has He restored me from my wanderings, and once again folded me within the circle of His everlasting arm!

The best of all is, that He does it all Himself personally, not delegating the task of love, but condescending Himself to rescue and preserve His most unworthy servant. How shall I love Him enough or serve Him worthily? I would fain make His name great unto the ends of the earth, but what can my feebleness do for Him?

Great Shepherd, add to Thy mercies this one other, a heart to love Thee more truly as I ought.

Be gone all doubts and fear. Jesus loves me this I know and my bible tells me so.

Beloved, go in this mighty all through the week and return on Friday with great testimonies.

Have a wonderful week ahead. Don’t give room to any “False thought”. Don’t ever forget, He will leave you nor forsake you. And His Word will never fall to the ground without performing that which He has been sent to perform.

Remain ever blessed in the Lord.
