Wonderful Marvelous are the works of the Lord praise the Name, Wonderful Marvelous are the works of the Lord praise the Lord. Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Your Name is God, Emmanuel. Emmanuel Emmanuel Your Name is God, Emmanuel.
Yes Lord Your Name is God indeed. There is none like Thee. I looked round all eternity there is no one like You. Thank You for answers to prayers. Thank You for being God indeed unto us Your beloved children, blessed Thy Name. Faithful are You Lord.
Let the living praise the Lord, let the living praise the Lord. I am came across something during the week which I will like to share with you. my prayer is that it will change you postivitly as it did to me.
Beloved, how often do you say “Thank You lord.” we get use to something and we no longer see any reason to appreciate God for it. Sometime God allow those things to fail and we have struggle awhile before we either fix it or get it right again.
I had an experience last week that I simple say to that not only wasted my time but also draw my attention to the grace of God I have been enjoying without acknowledging the doer. I was working with my laptop and all of a sudden it switch off and every attempt to on it again failed. I connected to power supply all to no avail. Then the journey began. I have to get it fix else the ministration will be affected and so many other things on the line in case the laptop doesn’t come up again.
However, they were able to get it to switch on again but the battery was not charging. Instead of a laptop it became a desktop. Because it will only function only when it is connected to power supply or else. So what usually takes an every of two or three hours became unpredictable but in of it I was not only focus but also determine to continue the good work despite the challenges.
I eventually fixed the battery yesterday with so much prayer as the engineer was on it and could not detect what is wrong with it. After several failed attempt, he was able to fix it.
I came back feeling very cool and good, not only that, as I was about to open the laptop the Spirit of God prompted me to pray. And while I was praying, it was impressed deeply in my heart the reason to be grateful to God even for what we use daily and never think that it worth thanking God for.
Beloved, it important we ask God for forgiveness of ingratitude. There is nothing that you are entitle to ask by the grace and blood of Jesus.
What are believing God for this month and you are yet to receive. What are you trusting in God but it yet to manifest. Hear this, “ask God to forgive youth sin of ingratitude. For not thanking Him that you are alive and well. Begin to thank Him for those things we call “common blessings.” And as you do it believe me every other thing will be added unto Thee.
Those little things in your hand, God will being to expand and increase them above your understanding in Jesus Name.
It is God that blessed and add no sorrow to it. Those things you never believe will work will begin to work as you imbibe the attitude of thanksgiving and gratitude in the days ahead.
Read the encounter of the prophet wife with Elisha. As little as that oil, the God of Elisha began to expand it. He increased to the capacity her faith can carry and stop.
What about the sons of prophet, the borrowed axe-head fell into the sea. The same God of Elisha made the axe-head to swim up. So dearly beloved, what is your challenge? This same God will answer you. The God of miracle will visit you today and honour. Glory be to God in the highest.
What a wonderful God we serve. He is miracle working God. Yours will not be an exception He will yet surprise you as you wait on Him. The topic of the day is pointing to us that we are all precious before God. Nothing is too small for God to bless. Having been rescued from the grasp of death or nothingness, God will bless you and increase you. He will yet honour and increase you again (Ps 71:21).
Remember, the month will soon be over but I want to quickly remind you the need to have integrate in whatever you have been called to do.
Your Master and Mentor Jesus exhibited that, if He died for you and save you from all unrighteousness. He expect you to do the same. Nothing less than that is acceptable from you.
Be faithful in little. Hold on to God and He will bless you. Keep reading to discover more:
“He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.” Ps. 115:13
This is a word of cheer to those who are of humble station and mean estate. Our God has a very gracious consideration for those of small property, small talent, small influence, small weight. God careth for the small things in creation, and even regards sparrows in their lighting upon the ground.
Nothing is small to God, for He makes use of insignificant agents for the accomplishment of His purposes. Let the least among men seek of God a blessing upon his littleness, and he shall find his contracted sphere to be a happy one.
Among those who fear the Lord there are little and great. Some are babes, and others are giants. But these are all blessed. Little faith is blessed faith. Trembling hope is blessed hope. Every grace of the Holy Spirit, even though it be only in the bud, bears a blessing within it.
Moreover, the Lord Jesus bought both the small and the great with the same precious blood, and He has engaged to preserve the lambs as well as the full-grown sheep. No mother overlooks her child because it is little; nay, the smaller it is, the more tenderly does she nurse it. If there be any preference with the Lord, He does not arrange them as “great and small,” but as “small and great.
Yes! You so significant before God. He cannot leave you nor forsake you. A clarion call to be Christ ambassador. Is a challenge to this present generation but God will help us in Jesus Name:
Is It Possible To Integrate Biblical Values Into Your Professional Life?
Yes! Jesus did it. And so can you!
As a young man, Jesus Christ was in the carpentry business. Can you imagine Him delivering an inferior piece of furniture to a customer?
Or deceiving people through an advertising campaign?
Or inflating sale prices beyond reasonable profit margins?
Or failing to give top notch service after the sale?
Or underpaying the employees in His carpentry shop?
Can you conceive of Jesus telling the local rabbi, “Well, times are tough. It’s unrealistic to literally apply Biblical principles to business, given the realities of today’s business climate. We have to bend the rules here and there to survive”? Hardly.
The fact is that Jesus lived a life of total integrity… and He expects the same of us:
“(He) has been tempted in every way, just as we are – yet was without sin… ” (Hebrews 4:15)
Dr. Laura Nash, suggests five questions we might ask ourselves as we seek to apply Biblical ethics to business:
Am I hiding something?
Am I hurting anyone?
How does it look from the other person’s point of view?
Have I discussed this face-to-face?
What would I tell my child to do?
If we are unable to integrate Biblical values into our business or profession, perhaps we need to reevaluate our vocation or calling.
So many businesses are found wanting in this area but my prayer is that God will begin a cleanse work and help people of integrate to increase in worth as the service Him faithfully. May God give you deeper understanding as you mediate on this in Jesus Name.
Father give us blessings on our littleness according to Your Word in Jesus Name.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
