O worship the King, O glorious above… // Today O, I will lift my voice to day 2x, for I know You are always here for me, Almighty God You are my All in All, no matter what face when troubles come my way I will praise You Lord.

O Father in heaven above, Your presence run through You have made. Even depth, the deepest darkness acknowledges Your presence. I stand in Awe of You. Thank You for another moment in Your presence to reverence You and to worship You. Who is like unto Thee O my God.

O my soul, “Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in His Sanctuary: Praise Him in the firmament of His power , Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.  Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.  Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord. {Psalms 150:2-6 (KJV)

Dear beloved, what a wonderful day ahead of us, we are to praise God today according to the psalm before us. Today is Our PCL day and we choose to praise God for Who He is, then thereafter we go into the teaching of the day and the lesson for us to take away. Praise the Lord.

Beloved, you cannot believe in something or person you do not know much about, that is not only true but also a fact. By the grace of God, We will see more of God in this month than ever before. The Spirit of God will help our understanding of who God is and be prepared to sit at His feet daily to learn from Him and not every now and then.

Our God has been grace to us from the beginning of the year upon till now. he has watch over us, kept and preserve us from all evils. He has been gracious to us and heal all our diseases. Beloved, it is good to praise and worship Him for Who He is.

According to the psalm before us for worship let us examine it under the following headings- God should be praised. Where? In verse one of this psalm we see the author tell us where to worship God, some version added Hallelujah! Because the Lord is to be exalt above all things. He created us and all things we have belong to Him, therefore we ought to worship God in His sanctuary. (Which I may say now also include yourself, when you offer it as a living sacrifice unto Him). We ought to worship in both in worship center and every other place we exist, God must be in adoration all the time. We worship God because of His Mighty power.

Do you know that power without righteousness would be oppression, and righteousness without power would be too weak for usefulness; but the two put together in an infinite degree and we have God. What an expanse we have in the boundless firmament of divine power! Let it all be filled with praise. Let the heaves, so great and strong, echo with the praise of the thrice Holy Jehovah, while the sanctuaries of the earth magnify the Almighty One.

Why are we to praise God? Read the verse two of the psalm. What are you going to use to worship Him, verse three to five have it therein. By whom? Who are those to worship God, who are the living thing refer to here in these verse. Let us not ascend to the idea expresses in the common version, “everything that hath breath,” not merely all that lives, but all that has a voice to praise God.

Do you have a voice to praise God? Then pick up your instruments of praise as written in verse three and begin to worship. (your hands and feet are also inclusive) so jump up and give God praise. He is God and He endure for ever.

On the theme of the month, we will be starting by establishing that Faith is not just a single act, though faith often beings with a single act. Nor is it only a body of doctrine to which one gives ascent, though what one believes can be describe in statement of faith, faith is an action, a commitment of one’s life to Jesus Christ. . “To faith” is a process of continual growth, development and Christian mature from a less to more mature stage..

Faithing is as much a verb or action as it is a noun, it is a spiritual growth and development, even the bible had a record of the disciples of Jesus asking for an increased faith (Lk 17:5). Faith continues to grow (1 Cor 3:1-6; 2Cor 10:15).

You cannot go far except you fellow Him that knows the way. That is why we offer today to worship our Father Who will lead us all the way. He will guide your understanding and thought and sits you in dominion by the end of this month in Jesus Name.

Here comes the teaching of the day for further understanding of what we have been discussing:

 

“Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord.” Hosea 6:3

 

Not all at once, but by degrees shall we attain to holy knowledge, and our business is to persevere and learn by little and little. We need not despair, though our progress may be slow, for we shall yet know. The Lord, who has become our Teacher, will not give us up, however slow of understanding we may be; for it is not for His honor that any degree of human folly should baffle His skill. The Lord delights to make the simple wise.

Our duty is to keep to our main topic, and follow on to know, not this peculiar doctrine nor that, but Jehovah Himself. To know Father, Son, and Spirit, the Triune God, this is life eternal: let us keep to this, for in this way we shall gain complete instruction. By following on to know the Lord, we learn healing after being torn, binding up after smiting, and life after death. Experience has its perfect work when the heart follows the trackway of the Almighty Lord.

My soul, keep thou close to Jesus, follow on to know God in Jesus, and so shalt thou come to the knowledge of Christ, which is the most excellent of all the sciences. The Holy Ghost will lead thee into all truth. Is not this His gracious office? Rely upon Him to fulfill it.

Beloved, come and see a man that sought- after God and how he was blessed in all that He did. Everything about Him was led by God and his blessing became a generational blessings like that of His Father. Let’s keep going:

“Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide.” Genesis 24:63

Very admirable was his occupation. If those who spend so many hours in idle company, light reading, and useless pastimes, could learn wisdom, they would find more profitable society and more interesting engagements in meditation than in the vanities which now have such charms for them. We should all know more, live nearer to God, and grow in grace, if we were more alone. Meditation chews the cud and extracts the real nutriment from the mental food gathered elsewhere. When Jesus is the theme, meditation is sweet indeed. Isaac found Rebecca while engaged in private musings; many others have found their best beloved there.

Very admirable was the choice of place. In the field we have a study hung round with texts for thought. From the cedar to the hyssop, from the soaring eagle down to the chirping grasshopper, from the blue expanse of heaven to a drop of dew, all things are full of teaching, and when the eye is divinely opened, that teaching flashes upon the mind far more vividly than from written books. Our little rooms are neither so healthy, so suggestive, so agreeable, or so inspiring as the fields. Let us count nothing common or unclean, but feel that all created things point to their Maker, and the field will at once be hallowed.

Very admirable was the season. The season of sunset as it draws a veil over the day, befits that repose of the soul when earthborn cares yield to the joys of heavenly communion. The glory of the setting sun excites our wonder, and the solemnity of approaching night awakens our awe. If the business of this day will permit it, it will be well, dear reader, if you can spare an hour to walk in the field at eventide, but if not, the Lord is in the town too, and will meet with thee in thy chamber or in the crowded street. Let thy heart go forth to meet Him.

Needless to say much here because the result of the meditation paid off. Isaac I believe learnt this from his Father Abraham. Parents of our days where are we pointing your children to? Cartoon? Disney world? What about the Bible? If they are still young and tender, what about bible stories that will eventually lead them to the real life of the bible? Stop destroying your children’s future engage them meaningfully so that in your life time and long after you are gone, they will follow the Lord. Build a solid foundation for them- Jesus Christ way of life.

David said “As a deer longs fir streams of water, so I long for You.” are You saying same with him? If you are, then be ready and join us daily as we bring from the Throne of Grace a Word that will satisfy your thirst and longings.

Let us thank God for the smooth takeoff and I believe He do more that we can ever imagine. Keep a date with us daily and introduce others to this site and God will honour you in Jesus Name.

Have a wonderful time in God’s presence and a beautiful weekend, don’t forget to go your place of worship this Sunday. See you next week by God’s grace.

Remain blessed in the Lord
