O Lord, my God! How Excellent is Your Name, You are the pillar that holds my life. In God, we are everything; outside of Him we can do nothing. Thank You for carrying all my burdens (Ps 55: 22). Blessed be thy name O God.

Indeed, You are God and none can be compared with You. I worship You o! Lord, who is worthy of my praises.

Beloved, hope you prayed and intercede for others yesterday? I have good news for you this morning, the Lord is telling you to “be of good cheer” in all you tabled before Him, for He has overcome the world for you, therefore every assault of the devil will not sail through. Someone is saying Evangelist you don’t understand, yes I don’t but He does; won’t that cheer you up as He foretold. Consider further:

“In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

My Lord’s words are true as to the tribulation. I have my share of it beyond all doubt. The flail is not hung up out of the way, nor can I hope that it will be laid aside so long as I lie upon the threshing floor. How can I look to be at home in the enemy’s country, joyful while in exile, or comfortable in a wilderness? This is not my rest. This is the place of the furnace, and the forge, and the hammer. My experience tallies with my Lord’s words.

I note how He bids me “be of good cheer.” Alas! I am far too apt to be downcast. My spirit soon sinks when I am sorely tried. But I must not give way to this feeling. When my Lord bids me cheer up I must not dare to be cast down.

What is the argument which He uses to encourage me? Why, it is His own victory. He says, “I have overcome the world.” His battle was much more severe than mine. I have not yet resisted unto blood. Why do I despair of overcoming? See, my soul, the enemy has been once overcome. I fight with a beaten foe. O world, Jesus has already vanquished thee; and in me, by His grace, He will overcome thee again. Therefore am I of good cheer, and sing unto my conquering Lord.

Does that give you the desired comfort? If not yet, come along with me as you discover more of His promises to you perhaps that will encourage and satisfy your thirst, you will experience in Him “immediate freedom”, read more:

“For now will I break his yoke from off thee, and will burst thy bonds in sunder.” Nahum 1:13

The Assyrian was allowed for a season to oppress the Lord’s people, but there came a time for his power to be broken. So, many a heart is held in bondage by Satan, and frets sorely under the yoke. Oh, that to such prisoners of hope the word of the Lord may come at once, according to the text, “Now will I break his yoke from off thee, and will burst thy bonds in sunder”!

See! the Lord promises a present deliverance: “Now will I break his yoke from off thee.” Believe for immediate freedom, and according to thy faith SO shall it be unto thee at this very hour. When God saith “now,” let no man say “tomorrow.

See how complete the rescue is to be; for the yoke is not to be removed, but broken; and the bonds are not to be untied, but burst asunder. Here is a display of divine force which guarantees that the oppressor shall not return. His yoke is broken; we cannot again be bowed down by its weight. His bonds are burst asunder; they can no longer hold us.

Oh, to believe in Jesus for complete and everlasting emancipation! “If the Son shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” Come, Lord, and set free thy captives, according to thy word.

Does that fit into your situation right now, than be encourage because none of His words will fall to the ground without being fulfilled.

Dear beloved, make this confession before the Lord “I believe every word that you have spoken and I claim my liberty in it Amen. So shall it be in Jesus name!  Amen. (1 Cor 4:20; Heb 11:6)

Remain blessed in the Lord!
