Who is like unto thee O Lord who is like unto thee O Lord, among the gods who is like thee you are glorious in holiness fearful in praising doing wonders alleluia. O Lord my God, how excellent is your Name, in all the earth, how wonderful is your Name x2. Lord you are faithful, faithful, faithful, faithful, faithful, faithful, faithful, faithful is the Lord, Lord You are faithful, faithful faithful, faithful, faithful, faithful, faithful, faithful is the Lord.

Yes Lord indeed you are faithful to Your children, Great are Lord, You are greatly to be Praise, You are excellent, You are Wonderful, You are Mighty, glory be to Your Name on high. Who can be compared with You, I have looked all the eternity O Lord and I found no one. Thank You for You thought towards are not evil but good, thank You, thank You, Thank You Father.

Arise O God and let Your Name alone be honoured, we worship You, we exalt You forever and ever. Great are You lord, You are greatly to be Praise, heaven and are full of Your glory, thank You for considering us to be in original state You made us to be, Father, we are happy; we remain ever grateful to You. What is man than you are so mindful of Him; the son of man that you care for him? You made him a litter lower than the heavenly beings and You crown him with glory and honour….,Ps 8:4-9.

Beloved, join me to sing this song once again – Great is Thy faithfulness, great is Thy faithfulness morning by morning new mercies I see, all that I needed Your Hand have provided, great is Thy faithfulness Lord unto thee.

Beloved what are you that God is so mindful of you? I want you to humble yourself before Him this moment and be silence before Him. let your quietness be felt by things around you, as you position yourself in this position the Spirit of God will speak to your mind, you will gain an insight to the some question You are asking God, He will reveal some hard nut issues to you, you will hear Him clearly, as He make you aware of what He is doing. God  is not a respecter of person what did for one person, He will do for another. Praise the Lord.

I don’t know what is pressing in your heart as this second half of the year commence but I know that is ever faithful to fulfill the desire of your heart, therefore, I will suggest to do what Paul and Silas did the night before their execution, they choose to rejoice yes! They choose rejoicing over worrying and sorrowing. Like the three Hebrew boys they choose to Praise God instead of asking God why.

Can we decide to go with that attitude knowing that God is all knowledgeable and all knowing, that He knows our need more than we know. But the condition to meet all our need is for us to first seek the kingdom of God and every other thing shall be added to us. Praise the Lord.

Another important virtue I will like us imbibe is to learn how to be contented with what God has given us and not be coveting what our brothers or sister has. We can ask God to give a gift we feel that will help our ministry and not to back biting the person that has the gift. Because give liberally He can always give to you if He feels that it will aid your ministry but if He chose not to, I think we should be contented with what He choose to do with us Praise the Lord.

Paul was the chief character in both messages we have, he was mighty use by God, by the conduct of his ministry you can testify that he was satisfy what God called to do. He never desired to be like Peter nor John the beloved rather he was happy that Jesus even pick him a murderer to be numbered among the Apostle.

Beloved an attitude of contentment can only be achieve if we are truly disciple and not religious, may God give us understanding in Jesus Name.


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.


I don’t say this out of need, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.—Philippians 4:11


Our world promotes dissatisfaction with our lives. We are constantly bombarded with newer and better things that will make our lives more complete if only we would obtain them! If we listen to the world, we will always be comparing the lifestyles and possessions of others with our own, and we will always be dissatisfied. If our contentment comes from possessions, activities, or other people, these can be altered or removed. If our contentment comes from our relationship with Christ, there is absolutely nothing that can take that away.

Paul had enjoyed power and status among his people. He had also been imprisoned and bound in stocks in the depths of a jail cell. He had stood before a king and been stoned almost to death by an angry mob. Paul had enjoyed the benefits and pleasures of life, yet he could give them all up and still be filled with the joy of the Lord. His contentment did not depend on his environment but on his relationship with Christ.

Contentment frees you to enjoy every good thing God has given you. Contentment demonstrates your belief that God loves you and has your best interest in mind. Discontent stems from the sin of ingratitude and a lack of faith that God loves you enough to provide for all that you need. Strive to be grateful for all that God has given you. A grateful heart has no room for envy.

Beloved, you contentment with God must come relationship you have cultivated with Him. The children of Israelite enjoyed God’s provision and miracles but they knew Him not but Moses knew God in addition to other benefits and that was why He never doubted God in all the assignments God sent him to do. God made him god over Pharaoh, so if you are still doubting how will God bestow His glory to you, I suggest you read about Moses maybe that will help your unbelief, Praise the Lord.

Beloved, ask God to help you as choose rejoicing over every situation you find yourself, the God of glory will visit you and turn ia around for His own glory. And you must desire the gift of contentment as that will help your Christian race. Don’t forget that te glory of God has been realized upon you rejoice and glad in it. Praise the Lord.

Remain ever blessed in the Lord.
