Jesus Jesus Jesus Jesus You are love of my life, Jesus Jesus Jesus You are the Lord of my life O Jesus You are Lord of my life, yea Jesus, You are Lord of my life. I will praise Thee for e-v-e-r, I will praise You for ever, I will praise You for ever, I will praise You forever more.
Our Father we praise You will bless You Holy Name, we adore You we give You praise forever. Thank You for blessing of this week. Thank You for the month You ushered in, in a grand style. Immortal, invisible, God Only Wise, Great are You Lord. Merciful Father, I praise You forever more. Have your way, we pray Thee as we learn at feet again, speak for your servant heareth.
Beloved, how has the week been? Hope you have started enjoining God’s plans for the month? You are in for a great wonders if you pay attention and obey all the teachings of the Lord. As you read God’s Word, meditate therein, You will experiences wonders, praise God!
Beloved, today is PCL, considering all the expositions of the week we are glad to have a session that will narrow it down to our understanding by applying it our individual lives to improve our relationship with our Maker as His Spirit through the Word brood upon us. Praise God!
Let consider further the theme of the month- Divine Fulfillment. What do you understand by it? Whatever you desires of, bring to it before God and ask for His help in its actualization. Ask God to also bring to past His plan and purposes in your life to past.
God has an agenda when He brought the children of Israelite to Egypt, when He decided to deliver them from Pharaoh’s hand, He also had a purpose. As He move them from one town to another, God had a purpose in view. As against the shortest route to Canaan, God instructed Moses to take the longer route all for a purpose.
But the people failed to see God in all these. They failed to see the hand of God working and perfecting them for His glory. They prefered they ambition as against God’s plan and purposes for them
Then God dealt with them, most adult that left Egypt never entered the Canaan because of unbelief and reprobate mind. They doubted God and God was not pleased with them, therefore He sworn that none of those involved will enter the promise land. They preferred the cucumbers, onions and garlic back way in Egypt. They were afraid of their children surviving the hunger and thirst they were experienced (Num 11:4-5; 31-33).
And God destroyed them and made their children to inherit the promise instead.
Beloved, how often we doubt God’s promises and love for us. How often we allow Satan to our sonship in God. Our Jesus is same yesterday, today and forever.
The lesson herein is that we must learn to believe God’s promise to us when we pray. We must learn to trust Him also when His Word come to us in prophesy that are not heresies.
In our teaching today, we will discover that what makes an individual is God. God told Moses, I will be with your mouth. He told Him that He will make him a god unto Pharaoh. That same God promise to be with Joshua when he took over from Moses. Beloved, Jesus did same when He was about to ascend to His Father in heaven, He charge the Apostles to “Go” make disciples of all nation. He told that as many as believed they should baptize. This instruction has been pass down to us and we must also do same to those coming after us.
In each case, we see Jesus following the teaching of the Apostles of old and confirming their words same way today as we engage in soul winning, praying for the sick, He follows us and confirm our word as we speak.
He changes not. Therefore, we are simply charging you to believe God’s Word through His ministers as they make pronouncements in Jesus Name. Find your place in God’s plan and fulfill purpose.
May God help us to be found worthy of His use in Jesus Name.
Let’s discover more beloved:
The Lord said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid of them, for I have handed them over to you. Not one of them will be able to stand against you.”—Joshua 10:8
No greater confidence will ever come to you or to any other Christian than the confidence of knowing you are doing God’s will. God will not commission you to do anything without ensuring your success. God assured Joshua that there was no reason to fear as he prepared to battle the Canaanites. God would allow the Israelites to fight the battle, but the outcome was settled before they ever picked up their weapons. What confidence this gave them as they fought! Even though their enemies fought relentlessly, Joshua’s army was certain of eventual victory.
Does it appear that people are keeping you from obeying God’s will? Rest assured that God will not allow anyone or anything to prevent His children from accomplishing His purposes.
Be careful to evaluate success in the way that God does. Perhaps He is working to produce His peace in your heart as you face troubling times. Perhaps He is working to develop a forgiving spirit in you when others mistreat you. Perhaps He is working to eliminate a particular sin in your life.
If you accept the world’s understanding of victory, you may feel defeated. If you look to see what God is accomplishing through your situation, you will find that He is succeeding. When you face opposition but know you are doing what God has asked, have confidence that He will accomplish everything that He desires.
Yes! Worldly view of victory is different from God’s view of victory. It is God’s plan for us to be humble even in what looks difficult and challenging, always trusting Him for His best judgment even we feel hurt, dejected and unduly taking advantage of. But He knows what He wants to achieve, He made us and He knew what His plans for us is.
Beloved, do you wants to experience God’s Word for us this month. Sin must be step aside. You must live a pure and unadulterated life. God’s promises only finds expression in that man/woman that fears Him. We have a bible character that lived this out for our studying. Let’s discover more:
Side-Stepping The Seducer
A few days ago I met with a married man who has become ensnared in an adulterous affair. During my morning reading, and with his situation in mind, I came across Joseph’s encounter with a married woman. The story in brief: Joseph’s ten jealous brothers sell him into slavery in Egypt where he ends up as the household manager of a military officer named Potiphar: Following are observations from Genesis 39:
- Temptation may come amidst God’s blessing:
“The Lord was with Joseph and he prospered… When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did, Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant… ” (verses 2-4a)
- We may be exposed to sensual people who will seek to seduce us:
“Now Joseph was well-built and handsome, and after a while his master‘s wife took notice of Joseph and said, ‘Come to bed with me.‘” (verses 6b-7)
- When the pressure is on, it will be our intense desire not to sin against God that will keep us pure:
“How then could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?” (verse 9b)
- Radical steps may be necessary to extricate ourselves from compromising situations:
“And though she spoke to Joseph day after day, he refused to go to bed with her or even be with her. One day he went into the house to attend to his duties, and none of the household servants was inside. She caught him by his cloak and said, ‘Come to bed with me!‘ But he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house.” (verses 10-12)
- An innocent mistake may prove costly when a scorned person turns vindictive:
“She kept his cloak beside her until his master came home. Then she told him this story: ‘That Hebrew slave you brought us came to me to make sport of me. But as soon as I screamed for help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of the house… Joseph‘s master took him and put him in prison… ” (verses 16-18, 20a)
QUESTION: Have you predetermined what you will do the day you are presented with a similar situation?
“My son, if sinners entice you, do not give in to them… do not go along with them, do not set foot on their paths… Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.” (Proverbs 1:10, 15b; 2:11)
Beloved, the theme of the month must find expression in your life, just keep on believing God, keeping trusting, keep away from destiny wasters, and above all flee from sins or anything that thus easily beset us. Praise God!
As you read and meditate on this teaching, ask the Holy Spirit to help you to find fulfillment in God’s Word. Read Ps 118 to see God fulfilling His promises in the life of His children. Praise God.
Have a wonderful weekend. See you next week by God’s grace.
Remain ever blessed in the Lord.
