Thank You, my God. Thank You, Jesus. Thank You, my Saviour. Thank You my dear Lord, Alleluia! // Jesus what a Wonder You Are, You Are so gentle, so good and so Kind…, You Who Shine like a bright morning Star, Jesus what a wonder You Are!!!
Father, in heaven O God! Thank You for yet another day You have made and we shall rejoice in it and be glad. Thank You for Your faithfulness and love toward us Your children. Thank You Lord for your abiding Presence that will never fail. Blessed be Thy Holy Name for ever and ever.
Arise O God! let Your enemies be scatter. In You is our strength and hope. Father, without Your help O Lord we can do nothing. We need You afresh today. Father, we reject every familiar spirit that make us too comfortable in Your presence Lord. We want to feel Your Awesomeness today as it were when we first come to You.
Come in Your power, come with blessings even as we call on You today O God of heaven and earth.
Beloved, this is a day that we must see God anew. Therefore, we contend with every familiar spirit that held us captive in our relationship with God. Father today, contend with them, we pray in Jesus Name. Help us to climb higher today in our experience of You as we pray.
Rebuke every spirit of doubt that has accompanied thus far. Help us today to fall in awe of You Lord for You are a God to be feared and reverence in Jesus Name! (Jas 1:6; 1 Cor16:13)
Beloveth, “are you ready to get thee higher on the mountain of prayer?” Come with me as we climb through prayer the mountain before us to see more of Jesus:
“Get thee up into the high mountain.” Isaiah 40:9
Our knowledge of Christ is somewhat like climbing one of our Welsh mountains. When you are at the base you see but little: the mountain itself appears to be but one-half as high as it really is. Confined in a little valley, you discover scarcely anything but the rippling brooks as they descend into the stream at the foot of the mountain.
Climb the first rising knoll, and the valley lengthens and widens beneath your feet. Go higher, and you see the country for four or five miles round, and you are delighted with the widening prospect. Mount still, and the scene enlarges; till at last, when you are on the summit, and look east, west, north, and south, you see almost all England lying before you.
Yonder is a forest in some distant county, perhaps two hundred miles away, and here the sea, and there a shining river and the smoking chimneys of a manufacturing town, or the masts of the ships in a busy port. All these things please and delight you, and you say, “I could not have imagined that so much could be seen at this elevation.”
Now, the Christian life is of the same order. When we first believe in Christ we see but little of Him. The higher we climb the more we discover of His beauties. But who has ever gained the summit? Who has known all the heights and depths of the love of Christ which passes knowledge?
Paul, when grown old, sitting grey-haired, shivering in a dungeon in Rome, could say with greater emphasis than we can, “I know whom I have believed,” for each experience had been like the climbing of a hill, each trial had been like ascending another summit, and his death seemed like gaining the top of the mountain, from which he could see the whole of the faithfulness and the love of Him to whom he had committed his soul.
Get thee up, dear friend, into the high mountain.
Beloved, did you hear that? Get up to the summit today, don’t play around, don’t be cold in your place of prayer, arise and get to the summit today. Remember our Father is ever ready to answer whenever you call on Him, therefore, arise from where you are now, away with slothfulness in the place of prayer, away with familiarity, find no rest except in Christ Jesus:
“The dove found no rest for the sole of her foot.” Genesis 8:9
Reader, can you find rest apart from the ark, Christ Jesus? Then be assured that your religion is vain. Are you satisfied with anything short of a conscious knowledge of your union and interest in Christ? Then woe unto you. If you profess to be a Christian, yet find full satisfaction in worldly pleasures and pursuits, your profession is false.
If your soul can stretch herself at rest, and find the bed long enough, and the coverlet broad enough to cover her in the chambers of sin, then you are a hypocrite, and far enough from any right thoughts of Christ or perception of His preciousness. But if, on the other hand, you feel that if you could indulge in sin without punishment, yet it would be a punishment of itself; and that if you could have the whole world, and abide in it for ever, it would be quite enough misery not to be parted from it; for your God—your God—is what your soul craves after; then be of good courage, thou art a child of God.
With all thy sins and imperfections, take this to thy comfort: if thy soul has no rest in sin, thou are not as the sinner is! If thou art still crying after and craving after something better, Christ has not forgotten thee, for thou hast not quite forgotten Him. The believer cannot do without his Lord; words are inadequate to express his thoughts of Him. We cannot live on the sands of the wilderness, we want the manna which drops from on high; our skin bottles of creature confidence cannot yield us a drop of moisture, but we drink of the rock which follows us, and that rock is Christ.
When you feed on Him your soul can sing, “He hath satisfied my mouth with good things, so that my youth is renewed like the eagle’s,” but if you have Him not, your bursting wine vat and well-filled barn can give you no sort of satisfaction: rather lament over them in the words of wisdom, “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity!”
Beloveth, are you ready for a Jericho breaking wall prayer? Now grid thou lion and get going. We must pray today until you see all the wall hold you captive all your treasure come down as you shoot up your request to heaven.
My prayer for you is that whatever you bring before the Lord no matter how knotty must receive answers today in Jesus Name. Remember He faileth not, let that be your confidence as you go before him. (Prov 15:29. 2 Cor 7:1; Phil 4:19; Jas 5:17; 1:6)
Are you filthy? Humble yourself before Him and He will cleanse you and make you whole. My God is able to do all things, so pray and be bless in Jesus Name Amen!!!!! (Heb 7:24-25)
Remain blessed in the Lord.
