Abba Father we worship You, we glorify You, we exalt You, we give You praise, we give You adoration, we worship You, be Thou honoured forever and ever in the Mighty Name of Jesus.
How Excellent, how Wonderful, how beautiful You are. There is none like Thee. No one can touch my life the way You do. In You there is no queue, no network coverage area, no power failure. You are up and running all through the way. In my Lord there is no morning, no night; no up or down time.
For He is Able and Capable to do all that is in entrusted in His Hand. What a Glorious God we serve. That is why we are here again this beautiful Wednesday, to call on His Name.
Beloved, there is something “Special” about This Name, “Jesus”. At the mention of His Name, strange things happens, the sick become whole, the blind see; the lame work; the deaf hears just at the mention of that Name “Jesus”. Truly, strange things happens when you call on His Name, depleting situations turns around, enemies are defected, bond are broken, chains fells off the leg and hand of a believer just at the mention of His Name.
Is someone excited? O! give Him praise, give Him honour, Adoration in the highest. For our help is in the Name of the Lord. He will deliver you from that ugly situations, save your children from destructions, heal your land as you call on His Name today. Thank You Jesus! But you must heed His own bidding, bring him unto me (bring those situations to me):
“Bring him unto me.” Mark 9:19
Despairingly the poor disappointed father turned away from the disciples to their Master. His son was in the worst possible condition, and all means had failed, but the miserable child was soon delivered from the evil one when the parent in faith obeyed the Lord Jesus’ word, “Bring him unto me.”
Children are a precious gift from God, but much anxiety comes with them. They may be a great joy or a great bitterness to their parents; they may be filled with the Spirit of God, or possessed with the spirit of evil. In all cases, the Word of God gives us one receipt for the curing of all their ills, “Bring him unto me.” O for more agonizing prayer on their behalf while they are yet babes! Sin is there, let our prayers begin to attack it.
Our cries for our offspring should precede those cries which betoken their actual advent into a world of sin. In the days of their youth we shall see sad tokens of that dumb and deaf spirit which will neither pray aright, nor hear the voice of God in the soul, but Jesus still commands, “Bring them unto me.” When they are grown up they may wallow in sin and foam with enmity against God; then when our hearts are breaking we should remember the great Physician’s words, “Bring them unto me.” Never must we cease to pray until they cease to breathe. No case is hopeless while Jesus lives.
The Lord sometimes suffers His people to be driven into a corner that they may experimentally know how necessary He is to them. Ungodly children, when they show us our own powerlessness against the depravity of their hearts, drive us to flee to the strong for strength, and this is a great blessing to us. Whatever our morning’s need may be, let it like a strong current bear us to the ocean of divine love.
Jesus can soon remove our sorrow, He delights to comfort us. Let us hasten to Him while He waits to meet us. Concerning that Child, whatever concerns you have, come and meet with Him and that situation will turn around for good.
God himself is our comfort, our peace, He is the lifter of our heads, and our help is in His hand. He knows what to do and whom to send at any given time, be alert for He is sending someone your way this day to show you what to, to help you out of that situation, to comfort you, to put smile on your face again, my God is sending someone your way this day, that will help you succeed in that venture. Beloved, help is coming your way but you need to pray through:
“Encourage him.” Deuteronomy 1:38
God employs His people to encourage one another. He did not say to an angel, “Gabriel, my servant Joshua is about to lead my people into Canaan—go, encourage him.” God never works needless miracles; if His purposes can be accomplished by ordinary means, He will not use miraculous agency. Gabriel would not have been half so well fitted for the work as Moses.
A brother’s sympathy is more precious than an angel’s embassy. The angel, swift of wing, had better known the Master’s bidding than the people’s temper. An angel had never experienced the hardness of the road, nor seen the fiery serpents, nor had he led the stiff-necked multitude in the wilderness as Moses had done. We should be glad that God usually works for man by man. It forms a bond of brotherhood, and being mutually dependent on one another, we are fused more completely into one family.
Brethren, take the text as God’s message to you. Labour to help others, and especially strive to encourage them. Talk cheerily to the young and anxious enquirer, lovingly try to remove stumblingblocks out of his way. When you find a spark of grace in the heart, kneel down and blow it into a flame. Leave the young believer to discover the roughness of the road by degrees, but tell him of the strength which dwells in God, of the sureness of the promise, and of the charms of communion with Christ.
Aim to comfort the sorrowful, and to animate the desponding. Speak a word in season to him that is weary, and encourage those who are fearful to go on their way with gladness. God encourages you by His promises; Christ encourages you as He points to the heaven He has won for you, and the spirit encourages you as He works in you to will and to do of His own will and pleasure. Imitate divine wisdom, and encourage others, according to the word of this day.
Ask God for grace to do His bidding in the life of your brethren. Do not be too selfish to look around and extend help to those in need. Human needs are insatiable, ask God for the enabling to be a blessing to others especially those God bring your way. Is God that teacheth a man how to make profit. God guarantees fruitfulness despites your handwork, therefore honour God with your substances by blessing the needy around you and you will see God’s hand working in your favour (Ps 82:3; Prov 19:17; ). And it is a sin for you to send the needy away to come back when you have what he is asking for(1 Tim 6:17-19).
Beloved, there are things that you should naturally not pray for because they are guaranteed by your giving (Gen 24:46; Exo 6:8; Lev 23:10; Isa 58:7; Deut 15:9;11). God will bless your bread and your water. Let us give as unto the Lord not as unto man and God will answer you when you called, He will bless you and all that concerns you this day even to generations yet unborn in Jesus Name. Amen!
Pray brethren until you break through and you will blessed.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
