Mighty Father, the Great I Am; The Beginning and the End, the Ancient of Days. You are so Wonderful and so precious, there is none like Thee.
Thank You for the month of August, it was indeed a month of dominion for Your children. As You said so it through the mouth of Your servant, so it was. Thank You, Faithful Father, despites the works of the enemies, You are sure our strong tower where the righteous runs into and they are safe.
Thank You Father, we are still trusting You that You will exalt Your Name before the end of this day, this month in the lives of Your children in Jesus Name.
Beloved, I choose to rejoice instead of sorrowing nor grieving because in doing that God is glorified. I choose to glorified God than magnify any unpleasant situations in my life. I choose to praise God in that daring circumstance than sigh one bit for the devil and its cohorts. For their judgment had been long concluded. Therefore I choose to rejoice in everything.
What have you decided to do instead, dear beloved? Are you choosing rejoicing over crying, groaning, grumbling. Don’t forget that your God is “so Big and so Great”. He is a Mighty God, Ever faithful, The Ancient of Days. So rejoice and be glad in the Lord.
Beloved, pray along with us as we lay to rest my beloved mother-in-Law (Madam Grace Ohondu) who slept in the Lord at the age of 93years (a women of great virtues, who worked among men and in the house of the Lord to show forth the love and glory of the Lord) to rest today, that the Good Lord will grant her eternal rest among the Saints and fill the gap her exist has created.
In all things rejoice as we can see our brother Paul and Silas did even when are bound. They evangelize the prison and so many were let loose from the bondage and gave their life to Christ including the supposed captor and so shall all your enemies give up their evil ways at the sound of your rejoicing. Praise God.
About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.—Acts 16:25
Your joy as a Christian should not depend on your circumstances. Joy comes from God, and therefore it cannot be affected by what is outside of you. Don’t be fooled into letting the actions of others determine your joy. True joy comes from knowing that God Himself lives within you and has fellowship with you, regardless of your environment.
Real joy lies in the knowledge that holy God has completely forgiven you of every sin, and even now, He has a home prepared in heaven where you can spend eternity with Him (John 14:3). The circumstances of your life cannot change these truths!
Paul and Silas faced some of the most difficult circumstances imaginable. They were falsely accused, arrested, and imprisoned. They were beaten and shackled in the darkest, coldest section of the prison. But they refused to allow their horrific situation to dampen their joy! They did not blame God for allowing these things to happen to them. Instead, they praised Him for His goodness! In the darkness of the night, they prayed and they sang. God brought a miracle that released them from their chains, but perhaps the greater miracle was that His Holy Spirit could so fill them that even in their painful imprisonment they could overflow with joy!
Do not allow difficult events to cancel the joy of knowing you are a child of God. Choose to allow God’s Spirit to fill you with His unquenchable joy, and your life will be a miracle to those who watch you face the trials that come.
In every events of your life God will chose to manifest His glory through it, grieve not but trust more in what He will do for you through that situation. Amen! Somebody. Shout alleluia!
“The Lord our God hath shewed us His glory.” Deuteronomy 5:24
God’s great design in all His works is the manifestation of His own glory. Any aim less than this were unworthy of Himself. But how shall the glory of God be manifested to such fallen creatures as we are? Man’s eye is not single, he has ever a side glance towards his own honour, has too high an estimate of his own powers, and so is not qualified to behold the glory of the Lord.
It is clear, then, that self must stand out of the way, that there may be room for God to be exalted; and this is the reason why He bringeth His people ofttimes into straits and difficulties, that, being made conscious of their own folly and weakness, they may be fitted to behold the majesty of God when He comes forth to work their deliverance. He whose life is one even and smooth path, will see but little of the glory of the Lord, for he has few occasions of self-emptying, and hence, but little fitness for being filled with the revelation of God.
They who navigate little streams and shallow creeks, know but little of the God of tempests; but they who “do business in great waters,” these see His “wonders in the deep.” Among the huge Atlantic-waves of bereavement, poverty, temptation, and reproach, we learn the power of Jehovah, because we feel the littleness of man. Thank God, then, if you have been led by a rough road: it is this which has given you your experience of God’s greatness and lovingkindness.
Your troubles have enriched you with a wealth of knowledge to be gained by no other means: your trials have been the cleft of the rock in which Jehovah has set you, as He did His servant Moses, that you might behold His glory as it passed by. Praise God that you have not been left to the darkness and ignorance which continued prosperity might have involved, but that in the great fight of affliction, you have been capacitated for the outshinings of His glory in His wonderful dealings with you.
Beloved, let us thank God Who dealt kindly with His servant. Blessed be the name of the Lord Whose thought is best for us. Thank God Who gives us victory in every circumstance of life. Praise God Who gives us dominion over all those devil and his cohorts, sickness, battles of lives and whatever the challenges might be. The Lord is declaring to you that it is well with you and behold thus His Glory as you are gaining dominion and mastery in the Lord.
Finally, we are grateful for the end of the month and we are trusting You for the Month of September where You will reign and ruler over all our affairs in Jesus Name.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
