4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. It means that whatever be it if only you can find it worthy while to rejoice and Praise the Lord. satan will be frighten and give way to the glory of the Lord.
It might not be easy to do it especially if you are going through hardship but do you know that when you sing and worship and glorify God in your challenging times God smiles at you. You are only acknowledging the supremacy of God and you are handing over to Him to do that which Him alone can do in your life and situation.
Beloved, our God is beautiful in all situations; He will strengthen you if only you will come in humility and meekness as we were taught yesterday. I was highly blessed with yesterday teaching with this catchy word, “to be submissive to the “will of God,” patience or contentedness to self and to others, mildness to good and gentleness to evil.” Beloved, it can only be meek person that exhibit the above. We have a Moses recorded in the bible as meekest man on earth (Nu 12:3). We you see him pleading with God when He wanted to destroy the children of Israelite (Exo 32:9-11) just reflecting what our summarized teaching on meekness taught us.
Beloved, a man who has imbed meekness will not be far from a brokenness. For the remaining part of this week we will be considering what it means to be “Broken.” Are you broken? Do you know what it means to be broken?
The word Broken has many meaning but we will narrow it down to a heart that is broken before God. (Ps 51:17, Job 17:1). In Ps 51:17 – we saw a broken Spirit or a repentant Spirit but in Job 17:1 we saw a man who is sorrowing from what befell him. come along with me as we discover more:

” The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18). Beloved, having gone through these can it be said that you are broken? Am sure the web cut us in many areas. What are you plans around where you are weak? We need to plead with the Holy Spirit to help us. he is the only One that can help our infirmities, call on Him now. And He will help you to live a blameless life: come on for more discover:
On Leading A “Blameless” Life
- ” But Dwight, there is no way you can stay in business without shading the truth.“
- The sign on the condominium announces, ” 75% Sold” . I happen to know that the figure is 40%. The owners are highly visible Christian businessmen in the community.
The Scriptures correctly indict the human race in observing, ” All men are liars.” (Psalm 116:11)
So, what is the standard for believers who domicile, socialize and make their living in a world of liars? Answer: To be “blameless”:
” The righteous man leads a blameless life… ” (Proverbs 20:7)
In this context “blameless” is defined as:
(1) INTEGRITY: That is, there is congruency between what youverbalize and what you practice: WYSIWYG: What You See Is What You Get. No one can point the finger at you and legitimately cry, ” Hypocrite“!
(2) SIMPLICITY: ” My heart is not haughty, O Lord , nor my eyes lofty; Neither do I concern myself with great matters nor with things too profound for me.” (Psalm 131:1)
Over the years I have observed that maturing Christians are continually taking steps to simplify their lives rather than allowing them to become increasingly complex.
As Gandhi once said, ” There is more to life than increasing its speed.“
(3) INNOCENCE: Jesus talked about the virtues of childlikeness: ” I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:3)
Are not simplicity and innocence trademarks of children? The more complex our lives become, the more we are inclined to loose our innocence.
QUESTION: How would your lost associates describe your life?
As phony? Inconsistent? Fake? Or as Authentic? Real? Genuine?
How you answer that question defines whether or not you are in fact a righteous person as evidenced by your blameless life. (Adapted from FOTM).
Our month of sure-footedness, may God help us to know Him, serve Him, in this world and in the world to come. We will fear the Lord, we will bear His mark, we must live righteously, we will be His children indeed, may God help us. Praise the Lord.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
