Christ Must Reorient You


O! my Redeemer, Redeemer liveth, Redeemer O! my Redeemer Redeemer liveth Redeemer, Redeemer liveth. Blessed be Thy Name of the Lord, He is Worthy to be praise and adore Lord, we lift our holy hands in one accord, singing blessed be Thy Name, Lord! Blessed be Thy Name of the Lord.

Father in heaven, hallow be Thy Name we glorify Your Name, thank You Father. The works of Your hand have come to worship You, to praise You for the Wonders You have done. Glory be to Your Name forever and ever in Jesus Name.

Thank You Father for the gift of another day, Thank You for preserving and keeping us from all evil. Thank You for being God indeed unto us. You are so mighty that we cannot bore You or get You wearied. Our dear parents  may be tried of us and fear might grip men concerning us, but thank for God Who made the heaven and the earth.

Thank You for being the pillars upon which the earth lean and every other thing depends upon. We rejoice in You Father, for You are the joy of our salvation and with joy we will draw water out of the wells of salvation.

Beloved, sing unto the Lord; for He has done excellent things; this is known in the all the earth. Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion; for great is the Holy one of Israel in our midst.

Beloved, a little more on yesterday’s topic standing Your watch makes You a watchman or woman, Jesus is the Good Shepherd and He watches over You from all evil and today He is asking You to keep watch not like the hireling who flee when seeth the wolf coming but to imitates Him, the Good Shepherd by keeping watch over what He has committed into your hand.

May we be patient enough to wait upon the Him even if He tarries in coming and the grace to stand until we receive answers be granted to each and every one of us in Jesus Name.  I have good news for you.

Beloved, there is an enroll going on in the body of Christ now, Christ is the recruiting manager. He is in the business of bring workers to the vineyard because the harvest is reap and the labours are few. None which His Father gave Him must be allowed to be spoilt in farm or get loss on the way, so He is as ever calling men to Himself.

However, the big question is are you available for this job. He pays well ofcourse but availability is the top most critical for the job opportunity. It not made for the unemployed alone but it also includes the CEO’s, Managing Directors, Manager, supervisors and trainees, it is for all strata beloved no exemption.

Let read more from the message below:

Going on a little farther, He saw James the son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in their boat mending their nets. Immediately He called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed Him.—Mark 1:19–20

We have a natural tendency to find our “comfort zone” and then position ourselves firmly in place. If you are in a situation or lifestyle where you are perfectly capable of handling everything, you have stopped growing in your understanding of God. God’s desire is to take you from where you are to where He wants you to be. You will always be one step of obedience away from the next truth God wants you to learn about Him.

You may experience a restlessness whereby you sense that there is far more you should be learning and experiencing about the Father. At times, this will mean that you should move to a new location or take a new job. It could indicate that you need a deeper dimension added to your prayer life. Perhaps you need to trust God to a degree you never have before.

The fishermen could not remain in their fishing boats and become apostles of Jesus Christ. Abraham was seventy-five years old when God gave him his major life assignment. These men had to disrupt their comfortable routine in order to reach new heights in their relationship with their Lord. Likewise, in order to experience God to the degree He wants you to, there will be adjustments He will ask of you.

Are you prepared for Christ to reveal Himself to you in dimensions that will change your life? Are you willing to abandon that which makes you comfortable?

And create extra time to pray, tell someone about Jesus, teach in Sunday school, go for prayer meetings, attain bible study. All this keep your oil running else you dry up and start experiencing knocking sounds like an engine without lubricant. Go out of your comfort zone today and do the extra for Jesus. We have our dominion through Christ.

Never mind how long you are born again or have been working in the vain yard. The message below is a warning that we must all adhere to. Let’s read more:

Let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” 1Corinthians 10:12

It is a curious fact, that there is such a thing as being proud of grace. A man says, “I have great faith, I shall not fall; poor little faith may, but I never shall.” “I have fervent love,” says another, “I can stand, there is no danger of my going astray.” He who boasts of grace has little grace to boast of.

Some who do this imagine that their graces can keep them, knowing not that the stream must flow constantly from the fountain head, or else the brook will soon be dry. If a continuous stream of oil comes not to the lamp, though it burn brightly today, it will smoke tomorrow, and noxious will be its scent. Take heed that thou gloriest not in thy graces, but let all thy glorying and confidence be in Christ and His strength, for only so canst thou be kept from falling.

Be much more in prayer. Spend longer time in holy adoration. Read the Scriptures more earnestly and constantly. Watch your lives more carefully. Live nearer to God. Take the best examples for your pattern. Let your conversation be redolent of heaven. Let your hearts be perfumed with affection for men’s souls.

So live that men may take knowledge of you that you have been with Jesus, and have learned of Him; and when that happy day shall come, when He whom you love shall say, “Come up higher,” may it be your happiness to hear Him say, “Thou hast fought a good fight, thou hast finished thy course, and henceforth there is laid up for thee a crown of righteousness which fadeth not away.”

On, Christian, with care and caution! On, with holy fear and trembling! On, with faith and confidence in Jesus alone, and let your constant petition be, “Uphold me according to Thy word.” He is able, and He alone, “To keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy.”

Beloved, be available for Christ and never in your life think that you can make it on your own. Always ask God to uphold you and learn more from Christ Who never think Himself of equal reputation with God but humbled Himself to die on the cross, so that you are I may come to the full knowledge of God and God exalted Him above all things. Be sober as you journey along and ask God to help you lest you fall. Allow Christ to reorient you on how to be part of this winning team.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
