You are God from Beginning to the end there is no place for argument You are good all by Yourself.// 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 wonder alleluia!!!, doing wonder alleluia. how excellent O God, How Excellent is Your Name O God, How excellent is Your Name, How excellent is Your Name, How excellent is Your Name O God!

I bow to worship at the throne with and Twenty and four Elders of heaven to reverence You Most High God. Thank You for what have done in my life and in the works You placed in my hand.

We come this first day of working week to learn at feet, Father in your mercies teach us something new. Pour Your blessings upon our lives and cause us to walk in Your favour and love. Direct our path to righteousness and make us an amble tools in your hand to do all Your works You may bring our way in Jesus Name.

Beloved, how are faring in secular and spiritual life? Are feeling over whelmed with things happening around you? Beloved, in all of these the Lord promised us safety and love as we heard Him say to at the beginning of the month, so you need not be afraid but daily relying on every Word that proceeded from the mouth of our God.

I may not know where the topic of today apply to your life but I one thing I know is that is God is able to do whatever you can ever ask of Him. Thank God for our Lord Jesus whose death delivered us from every form of oppression from the dark world, be it thrones or dominion, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him. He is the head of all principalities therefore we must stand our ground and not be discouraged. Praise the Lord!

The command we receive from the beginning of the year may be overwhelming when you consider your life humanly speaking, you don’t  know where to start, I have a good news for you. Our Lord is not a task master, He knows all about your troubles and has a solution to each of it but you are required to be involved.

Do allow the Spirit of weariness to get hold of you else you will not go far. Be zealous for the Lord and He will fight every of your battle and give you victory.

Get into the Word of God and consume it, seek direction from the Lord and He will direct your path. Be at alert to know what the Spirit of God is doing per time. I came across this statement in one of Joyce Meyer’s book “do it afraid.”

Do you understand what I just said? Are you in a place of inconsistence, you don’t know whether to go forward or stand where you are. You have an ideal but you are not sure what the outcome will give you. She said “ though you are not sure and you have no other option open to you, she said go ahead and “do it afraid.”

That really encouraged me, so even when I don’t know what the result will be or where it might lead me, instead sitting and calculating, I better take a walk, it will either lead me to my desired place or get me closer to it and where it did none of the above, I will quickly take another option other than waiting.

So I am saying the same thing to you to “do it afraid,” so take that walk, take that decision, make that call, visit that site, apply for that job, get going, is better than not making any move at all, Praise the Lord.

I will also suggest to you that you bring every word that is making itself higher than God under subjection and obedient to the Word of God (2 Cor 10:5). Yes! This will give you a leap as you walk through this world of uncertainty and peril.

As the Lord provided for Elijah respite during his weary time so will He will also do for you, for you are precious in His eyes, He will not leave you nor forsake you.

Join me to discover more below:

“I have been very zealous for the Lord God of Hosts,” he replied, “but the Israelites have abandoned Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left, and they’re looking for me to take my life.”—1 Kings 19:14

Kingdom work can be challenging! You can give everything you have to God’s service and come away exhausted. This is what happened to Elijah. God had just used Elijah to call down fire from heaven in a spectacular display of divine power. But Elijah’s exhilaration was soon replaced by strenuous work followed by death threats, causing him to flee for his life. Now he was alone, exhausted, and discouraged.

Again, God came to Elijah. This time, He came not in fire or in a loud, spectacular way, but in a still, small voice. God’s servant was tired, and God brought him comfort. Elijah’s focus had shifted from God to God’s enemies. He had allowed his circumstances to overwhelm him, leaving him disoriented to God and feeling alone. So God encouraged him. God provided Elisha for him as a helper, friend, and companion.

God removed Elijah from the activity for a time, so that he could rest and spend time with God. When the nation next saw Elijah, he was rejuvenated and refocused on God and His assignment.

If you are overwhelmed by kingdom work so that your focus is no longer on God but on all that there is to do, let Him comfort you. Listen to His gentle voice. He will encourage you and provide exactly what you need to prepare you for what comes next. If He needs to remove you from your work for a time, He will. He may place a friend or colaborer beside you to help carry the load. God knows exactly how to encourage you. Let Him do so.

Beloved, are encouraged? Listen the enemy may have thrown many obstacles your way but listen you must an overcomer attitude to surmount all of it. Even Jesus our Master was not spared, He was also tempted but He did not sin against God, so we must aim and do same. May God help us in Jesus Name.

“He Himself hath suffered being tempted.” Hebrews 2:18

 

It is a common-place thought, and yet it tastes like nectar to the weary heart—Jesus I was tempted as I am. You have heard that truth many times: have you grasped it? He was tempted to the very same sins into which we fall. Do not dissociate Jesus from our common manhood. It is a dark room which you are going through, but Jesus went through it before.

It is a sharp fight which you are waging, but Jesus has stood foot to foot with the same enemy. Let us be of good cheer, Christ has borne the load before us, and the blood-stained footsteps of the King of glory may be seen along the road which we traverse at this hour. There is something sweeter yet—Jesus was tempted, but Jesus never sinned. Then, my soul, it is not needful for thee to sin, for Jesus was a man, and if one man endured these temptations and sinned not, then in His power His members may also cease from sin.

Some beginners in the divine life think that they cannot be tempted without sinning, but they mistake; there is no sin in being tempted, but there is sin in yielding to temptation. Herein is comfort for the sorely tempted ones. There is still more to encourage them if they reflect that the Lord Jesus, though tempted, gloriously triumphed, and as He overcame, so surely shall His followers also, for Jesus is the representative man for His people; the Head has triumphed, and the members share in the victory.

Fears are needless, for Christ is with us, armed for our defence. Our place of safety is the bosom of the Saviour. Perhaps we are tempted just now, in order to drive us nearer to Him. Blessed be any wind that blows us into the port of our Saviour’s love! Happy wounds, which make us seek the beloved Physician. Ye tempted ones, come to your tempted Saviour, for He can be touched with a feeling of your infirmities, and will succour every tried and tempted one.

Yes we are not approaching a God that was tempted but he withstood satan and all his entice and brought them under His feet at Calvary, He will do same for you if you will believe. May you not drawback into perdition in Jesus Name. Hold on to every word of God and it shall set your feet on the Solid Rock, Jesus, Who will also ensure your going. Praise the Lord.

On this note beloved, we declare this week open and by the grace of God we will return with testimonies at the end of this week in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
