Beloveth, is Friday…. Praise the Lord is another PCL thank You Jesus! (Song) Is gonna be great in the morning moving with the pilgrim everything gonna be good!!!

Yes is promising to be great. First let consider our night watch challenge how many of us was able to complete the whole seven days or eight days? How many of us participated in it? How was it – very easy, rosy, tasking, tiring? In times of reward – how of us was blessed, receive grace to persevere, cruising, revelations, healings, deliverances and spiritual growth?

The essence is not for us score the highest as important that may be the whole essence is for us have a deeper relationship with our Maker, put Him first, seeking Him early and make sure we did not slumber in the place of prayer or our taking our relationship with God casual or putting up a lackadaisical attitude in it. and in return we are blessed beyond measure. The Lord will empower and make us to be on fire for Him. if we are on mission for Him, He will use us greatly to the glory of His Name amen!

Beloveth, our God is good all the time: all the time the Lord is good. Praise the Lord. this is another opportunity to be everything we are created to be so as we learn at Jesus feet today He will enable us to see ways to obey and please Him.

In our story text today, we saw Jesus refusing to say no to His Father’s Will. He refused to take the short cut to victory or succumbed to pain and anguish thereby aborting the plan of salvation, amen! but He went all the way to Calvary, die and He resurrected according to His Father’s promise and delivered to world salvation which was a reconciliation of the fallen world back to His Father which was severed at the garden of Eden.

Beloveth, can we do some spiritual exercise this morning — in Gen 3, satan went to the Garden of Eden and lured Eve to sin against God and Adam partake of the sin without rebuking His wife (Gen 3:1-13). Now when Jesus was preparing to save the world through crucifixion on the cross, He first went to the garden to pray…. is someone getting some revelation here.

Our Lord Jesus went to garden to pray, He has to overcome the power that overcame the first Adam in the Garden of Eden. While Jesus was praying the Bible had it that the sweat that was coming out His body was blood. He was tempted to abort the plan, satan would have  suggested to Him, Mr. Jesus there must be another way through which the world can be saved other than you dying on the Cross.

Jesus prayed to His Father for the consideration of another option “let this cup pass over me” but at this point God was only looking, listening but not saying a word. And Jesus whose action is only based on what the heaven is doing  per time prayed, “nevertheless, not my will but as Thou Wit”  and immediately He acknowledge the supremacy of His Father’s Will in the whole arrangement God sent an angel to strength Him and satan left Him at that time. (Matt 26:39)

Beloveth, Jesus had to overcome satan first at the garden before embarking on His journey to the Golgotha to be crucified. Praise the Lord.

Jesus did not take the short cut to bring about our salvation rather He offered Himself as it was originally designed to be from the foundation of the world and that brought us into the salvation plan of God and merit us to heirs of heaven Praise the Name of Jesus. (Rev 5:1-10).

Beloveth, join us for more:

“And they gave Him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but He received it not.” Mark 15:23

A golden truth is couched in the fact that the Saviour put the myrrhed wine-cup from His lips. On the heights of heaven the Son of God stood of old, and as He looked down upon our globe He measured the long descent to the utmost depths of human misery; He cast up the m total of all the agonies which expiation would require, and abated not a jot.

He solemnly determined that to offer a sufficient atoning sacrifice He must go the whole way, from the highest to the lowest, from the throne of highest glory to the cross of deepest woe. This myrrhed cup, with its soporific influence, would have stayed Him within a little of the utmost limit of misery, therefore He refused it. He would not stop short of all He had undertaken to suffer for His people.

Ah, how many of us have pined after reliefs to our grief which would have been injurious to us! Reader, did you never pray for a discharge from hard service or suffering with a petulant and wilful eagerness?

Providence has taken from you the desire of your eyes with a stroke. Say, Christian, if it had been said, “If you so desire it, that loved one of yours shall live, but God will be dishonoured,” could you have put away the temptation, and said, “Thy will be done”?

Oh, it is sweet to be able to say, “My Lord, if for other reasons I need not suffer, yet if I can honour Thee more by suffering, and if the loss of my earthly all will bring Thee glory, then so let it be. I refuse the comfort, if it comes in the way of Thine honour.”

O that we thus walked more in the footsteps of our Lord, cheerfully enduring trial for His sake, promptly and willingly putting away the thought of self and comfort when it would interfere with our finishing the work which He has given us to do.

Great grace is needed, but great grace is provided. Praise the Lord!

Jesus refused to take any short cut, likewise we should be in God’s Will in our walk here on earth knowing that we are to honour God even in our suffering/ challengings.

Job said “I will wait till my change come.”  Beloveth in that situation are you willing to wait on God to help you out? Are willing to allow God to lead you while you follow? Beloveth it is usually easy for us to say ‘yes’ while our action says ‘no’, may God help us in Jesus name.

Father gives us the much needed grace to stand through all our trials and temptations in Jesus Name. Never allow us to fall by the way side. Guide us in our actions and in-actions to be pleasing only to you in Jesus Name.

Our Lord Jesus went through and conquer, Father make us strong to conquer all and finish strong in Jesus Name Amen!!!

Have a beautiful weekend dearly beloved, spend more time seeking for strength to persevere in the face of trials in Jesus Name Amen!!!

See you on Monday if Jesus tarries…..

Remain blessed in the Lord.
