Glory, Glory Alleluia! Glory, Glory, praise the Lord. Father, we offer praise we offer praise, we glorify, your Holy Name.

Thank You Jesus for all that You have done for us, Your grace so abounding to us for every good works. Blessed be to Your Holy Name. We cannot thank You enough for the gifts of life, sound mind and good health You have given unto us. Blessed be Thy Holy Name for ever and ever. Amen!

Children of God, will you shout Alleluia to the King of kings, the Lord of Lords, The Ancient of days, The Alpha and Omega. I praise God that I belong to Jesus, what about you? Is that your testimony also? Can you beat your chest and said of the truth that you know whom you believed in.

Do you know that even God bear witness for one of His sons, He said I know him, to the end that he will command his children and household after him that they may keep the way of Jehovah (Gen 18:19). Can God say the same of you?

Can God said in that ministry, career, business, family, He has given you that He know that you are able to keep it according the pattern and foundation he laid for you.

We must be able to draw our daily living standards and patterns from the Word of God. We must deal fairly with each other.

I had course to check on the traffic on the site and according to each day message and I discovered that people are positively attracted to motivational messages other than the kind of messages I send out currently “bible based Word”. I was a bit down cast, a colleague told me why not do more of motivation’s since that is what we can deduce from the research that was carried out.

Especially, he said when you consider other ministries and he mentioned one or two of them, I was quick to give an answer that was not my calling. That was not what God told me. However, I was asking God what I need to do to improve the number of people that visit daily, I was so discouraged.

While I was probing my spirit mind what need done, the next day was a Sunday and God gave me an answer to my concern. It was a worship Sunday dedicated to the youth and during the ministration, the Spirit of God gave me Rom 12:2. I was so shock.

Must we do it because others are doing it? There must a difference between us and the world. Our type of music, dressing, associations, attitude and name it must be different. So I held my peace over it while still believing God that He will draw men unto Himself while am making the grass green for His pastures. Praise God.

It therefore means that the people with sincere hungry for the Word of God will come and be well fed by the Word of the Lord, ask questions where they need to and help spread the good news abroad by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Are you blessed this morning? Peradventure you are having the same experience in your area of calling, or in your office or business. Standing for the truth or Christ is not always easy but considering the instruction given us by God, will you prefer being a friend to all and be in enmity with God? God forbid.

I therefore encourage you to fix your eyes on God. I also want to know that God is not in every success. So you must know and get it right. Make sure in all your doings that you are working according to the standard of God. You are building on the foundation already laid by Christ Himself; not by man:

Moses and Aaron summoned the assembly in front of the rock, and Moses said to them, “Listen, you rebels! Must we bring water out of this rock for you?”—Numbers 20:10

It is easy to see why Moses became frustrated with the Hebrew people. They were so hard-hearted and weak in their faith that Moses lost his patience and became angry with them. Yet every time Moses shifted his focus away from God, it cost him. When he sought to help his people by taking matters into his own hands, he spent the next forty years herding sheep in the wilderness (Exod. 2:11–15). This time his impetuous behavior cost him the opportunity to enter the Promised Land (Num. 20:12).

In his frustration at the peoples’ irreverence, Moses committed the very same sin, blatantly disobeying God’s instructions. How did this happen? Moses allowed his attention to shift to the behavior of others rather than focusing on the activity of God.

This could happen to you as well. God has put people around you who need your ministry to them. You will never be able to properly help them, however, unless your primary focus is on God. If you concentrate on people, their weaknesses, their disobedience, their lack of faith, and their stubbornness will quickly frustrate you. You may, like Moses, commit the very sins you are condemning.

If, however, your eyes are fixed on holy God, you will become more like Him—gracious, forgiving, long-suffering, and righteous. When a friend’s behavior disappoints you, go immediately to the Lord. Seek to discern what God is wanting to do in your friend’s life rather than concentrating on your friend’s sin. Then you will have the strength, wisdom, and patience you need to help your friend in the way God desires.

By the grace of God, on Friday when we be considering another way of being part of greater glory, I will be bring to us the message that help me to live above people’s disappointment and negative attitude in my live and am sure you will gain one or two things on how to manage difficult people and forgive easily too. Go head to read more on success without God:

 

“If Your presence does not go,” Moses responded to Him, “don’t make us go up from here.”—Exodus 33:15

It is possible to experience success and yet be void of God’s presence. If success is what is important to you, you may be tempted to choose accomplishments over your relationship with God. God offered to send an angel with the Israelites as they entered the Promised Land to ensure their success in every venture. No army could withstand them. No city wall could stop them. The wealth of the land lay before them. Everything they had ever dreamed of appeared to be theirs for the taking. The only thing missing would be the presence of God. God said they were an obstinate people, and He would not go with them when their hearts were far from Him.

The Israelites’ experience reveals that victory and great accomplishments are not necessarily a sign of God’s presence. Do not assume that your good health, your profitable business, or the growth of your ministry is due to the presence of God. It may be that you have inadvertently chosen success over your walk with the Lord.

Moses wisely concluded that success, no matter how great, is not a substitute for fellowship with God. Moses knew how quickly worldly achievements could disappear. His security came from his relationship with God. Success in the world’s eyes is not a sign of God’s blessing. It may, in fact, indicate that you have chosen a substitute for intimate fellowship with God. Would you be satisfied to have success, power, and wealth, but not a relationship with God? Do you value God’s presence in your life more than the greatest achievements you could experience in the world?

Be wise in God and not in your own eyes. Do all in the Name of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. May God help us all in Jesus Name. As God is lifting up; be lifted in Jesus’s Name. Refuse to stay down but aspire to move forward.

This week is declared blessed in Jesus Name. The Lord will go before You and make a every crooked part be straight in Jesus Name. Be Blessed and return with Testimonies in Jesus’s Name. Amen!

Remain blessed in the Lord.
