You are a Mighty God the Great I am alleluia, alleluia. You are a mighty God, the Great I am alleluia, alleluia. Who is like unto Thee O Lord, Who is like unto Thee, among the gods who is like Thee, You are glorious in holiness fearful with praises doing wonders alleluia.
Father we thank Thee we blessed Your Holy Name. Great are You Lord. What a mighty God we serve. It is joy unspeakable full of glory, full of glory. It is joy unspeakable full of glory, Oh the half has never yet been told.
Yes! Dearly beloved, it is joy unspeakable to them that love and serve the Lord. Thank God for the gift of this week. It is indeed full of His glory. What more can we say than to worship God in His holiness. I believe you are blessing the Name of the Lord.
Is our PCL session, are you clapping unto the Lord! Please rejoice and clap unto the King of kings because He will set to bless that man whose heart pants hard after Him. Wow!
Is me oooo, what about you? Just leaning backward to yesterday ministration we made mention of choices and that informed why we chose today’s topic to buttress it further.
Our choices dearly beloved, can make or mar us. Can you remember what choices you made in the past given the same scenario you will never attempt it. Also there are choices that the Holy Spirit made us to accept and it is such a blessing to us afterward but that wouldn’t have been your choice under normal circumstances.
Dear beloved, I have a position when it comes to making choices. My position is and will always be that the Holy Spirit should guide me. Because they are things that may not be looking good from the beginning but as you trust God and go into it, sooner or later you will be singing ‘alleluia’ all the way.
Today’s ministration have two lessons for us, so I will advise you to sit tight, fix your belt as the Holy Spirit takes us through the journey:
When the young man heard that command, he went away grieving, because he had many possessions.—Matthew 19:22
Your life is the sum of the responses you have made toward God. Once God makes Himself known to you, what you do next is your decision. Your reaction reflects what you believe about Him. The rich, young ruler lived a moral life. He was well versed in Scripture and the laws of God. But his response to Jesus’ invitation clearly showed that, although he possessed a head knowledge of the teachings of God, he did not know God in an experiential way that could be demonstrated by a response of faith (Matt. 19:16–22).
Whenever the Lord speaks to you, it will require an adjustment in your life. This truth can dramatically affect your prayer life. Every time you pray you must be aware that if God answers your prayer and reveals His will to you, it will immediately require you to reorient your life. Each time you read your Bible, you must to be prepared to obey what God tells you.
Why did God use Peter and James and John so significantly to turn their world upside down? And why were others, like the rich, young ruler, never heard from again? Choices! The disciples chose to believe, and their belief was proven by their obedience. The rich, young ruler could not bring himself to obey, and Scripture tells us that he “went away sorrowful.”
You are faced with the same question as the rich, young ruler. What adjustments are you willing to make in order to respond positively to Christ?
Did you just read the last paragraph? Now considering the next topic – your choices will surely effects your end result. And I think that the result we should be considering today will be on how well we are finishing the race before us. Join me for more discover.
On Finishing The Race Well
Why is it so few people end the Christian life well? Here are a few observations I have made over the years:
- A failure to comprehend and rest in the grace of God. (Psalms 103:10-14; 2 Timothy 2:1; Hebrews 4:9-11)
- A failure to live a life of disciplined priorities. (1 Corinthians 9:24-27; 1 Timothy 4:7; 2 Peter 1:5-8)
- A failure in our earlier years to deal with sins and other debilitating issues. (1 Timothy 5:24; Galatians 6:7, 8)
- A failure to handle finances in a biblical manner. (Deuteronomy 8:17, 18; 1 Timothy 6:6-10; Luke 6:10-13; Romans 13:8; Proverbs 6:1-5)
- A failure to deal Biblically with the sexual area of life. (Matthew 5:27-30; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-7)
- A failure to grasp God’s sovereignty and grace in responding Biblically to bitterness, disappointment and disillusionment. (Isaiah 14:24; Romans 8:28-30; Hebrews 12:14, 15)
- A failure to live a life of sacrifice rather than a life of ease. (Luke 9:23, 24; 2 Corinthians 5:15)
- A failure to live a life of transparency, accountability and fellowship. (James 5:16, Proverbs 27:17; 1 John 1:7; Hebrews 10:24, 25)
Do you agree with that how well we will finish the race before us depends largely on how well we know the Word of God? We are not to fret or be anxious as the Lord will take over our cares and burden as we engage fully to obey His bidding. Glory be to God on high.
Beloved, God will help us as we obey, trust and believe that all is possible through that loves us.
Let us hold tight to His promises and plead them before the Throne. God will yet glorify Himself through us. Praise the Lord.
We will fight a good fight of faith and we will be a winner – 2Tim 6:12. We will finish well in the Name of Jesus, We will finish strong in the Name of Jesus.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
