Good morning Jesus; Good morning Lord, I know you come from heaven above. The Holy Spirit is on the throne; Good morning Jesus Good morning Lord. Blessed be the Name Lord, He is Worthy to be praise and adore! Lord I lift my holy hands in one accord singing blessed be Thy Name; blessed be the Name of the Lord.
Bless the Lord O my Soul, and everything that is within me, bless His Holy Name. Bless the Lord O my soul, and forget not all His benefits Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalms 103:3-5 (KJV).
O! it is good to bless the Lord Who made heaven and earth and all that is in it. The Lord has done wondrously to me; blessed be His Holy Name. His thought towards me is good and to give us an expected end.
Beloved, the contest here is the word “expected end”. Sometimes, we get entangle what seems to us an expected end but is that the “expected end” of God for us in that situation or need? Is so important that we align our self with what heaven have for us to achieve the expected end as ordained by God Himself.
Sometimes our faith cannot carry our “expected end” and therefore we need to either build it up or position ourselves to receive of our desired end. The best kind of faith we shall be considering later is that-: faith that rest only on Jesus.
The little boy with the five and two fish has Jesus kind of faith. He gave up what he has and in return, Jesus blessed him beyond his expectation. He would have gone home after the meeting with at least one basket as against the five and two fish he came with.
As I said earlier, our expectation oftentimes varies with God’s plan for us and it will only take us to listen to the voice of God to discover His plan for us and align it with our expected end or else we will miss His plan for us.
So sacrificial giving is one way to engenders “Supernatural Abundance.” Beloved, having known that, what can you offer to the Lord in return for the kind of lifting that is beyond your expectation? To be enrolled among the abundance entity as declared by the Lord.
Let us work at perfecting our faith to rest on Christ and not on man. Let us look up to the future and not at present because God only except where you are enable to have an cling to the future (Rom 1:17).
Faith is a hope according to Heb 11:1. What are you hoping for? Position yourself (faith) to receive by believing what the Word said and not what your present situation is saying. If God has said it He will surely bring to it to pass. Can you start by obeying the Spirit of God as He leads on.
Let us give due diligence in all our doings in order to obtain the expected end. This means that we should be deliberate in building up our faith and we must be consistence at it also (Heb 6:11-12). Let’s read along and discover more:
“Giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge, etc.” 2Peter 1:5,6
If thou wouldest enjoy the eminent grace of the full assurance of faith, under the blessed Spirit’s influence, and assistance, do what the Scripture tells thee, “Give diligence.” Take care that thy faith is of the right kind—that it is not a mere belief of doctrine, but a simple faith, depending on Christ, and on Christ alone. Give diligent heed to thy courage. Plead with God that He would give thee the face of a lion, that thou mayest, with a consciousness of right, go on boldly. Study well the Scriptures, and get knowledge; for a knowledge of doctrine will tend very much to confirm faith. Try to understand God’s Word; let it dwell in thy heart richly.
When thou hast done this, “Add to thy knowledge temperance.” Take heed to thy body: be temperate without. Take heed to thy soul: be temperate within. Get temperance of lip, life, heart, and thought. Add to this, by God’s Holy Spirit, patience; ask Him to give thee that patience which endureth affliction, which, when it is tried, shall come forth as gold. Array yourself with patience, that you may not murmur nor be depressed in your afflictions.
When that grace is won look to godliness. Godliness is something more than religion. Make God’s glory your object in life; live in His sight; dwell close to Him; seek for fellowship with Him; and thou hast “godliness”; and to that add brotherly love. Have a love to all the saints: and add to that a charity, which openeth its arms to all men, and loves their souls.
When you are adorned with these jewels, and just in proportion as you practise these heavenly virtues, will you come to know by clearest evidence “your calling and election.” “Give diligence,” if you would get assurance, for lukewarmness and doubting very naturally go hand in hand.
Are you blessed? These virtues are the Hallmark of a Christian. Access to them makes your walk in life easy.
Beloved, what are you believing God for? Are you afraid that you may not be able to achieve it? Hear what the Word of God is saying concerning it, go; take back your property, take back your health, take back your finance; take back Your future; take back your home, your marriage, your children the enemy had stolen from you, take it back now; claim it back by force in the Name of Jesus, go; take back what belongs to you now:
“Behold, the Lord thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged.” Deut. 1:21
There is a heritage of grace which we ought to be bold enough to win for our own possession. All that one believer has gained is free to another. We may be strong in faith, fervent in love, and abundant in labor; there is nothing to prevent it; let us go up and take possession. The sweetest experience and the brightest grace are as much for us as for any of our brethren, Jehovah has set it before us; no one can deny our right; let us go up and possess it in His name.
The world also lies before us to be conquered for the Lord Jesus. We are not to leave any country or corner of it unsubdued. That slum near our house is before us, not to baffle our endeavors, but to yield to them. We have only to summon courage enough to go forward, and we shall win dark homes and hard hearts for Jesus.
Let us never leave the people in a lane or alley to die because we have not enough faith in Jesus and His gospel to go up and possess the land. No spot is too benighted, no person so profane as to be beyond the power of grace.
Cowardice, begone! Faith marches to the conquest. Let fear begone! Faith marches to the conquest.
That shall be our watchword going forward in Jesus Name!
Remain blessed in the Lord!
