How Excellent are You Lord, how Wonderful, how Precious, You are King of Kings, the Ancient of Days, the Lion of Judea, the Soon Coming King. You are our Healer, Protector, defender, You are our Helper in hour of our need. Thank You, Father.

O worship the King, O glorious above! Father, thank You for another glorious week ahead of us. Indeed, You have done this great thing for us, praise be to Your Holy Name forever and ever.

Beloved, how are you doing? Hope great? Thank God for another great privilege to be part of eternity, to be of used and serve in the kingdom.

The month of May is here, the plants and flowers are rejoicing before their maker for the gift of rain that gave life to its roots and stem and the leave sing praises to the Lord. And I believe we are not left out, ‘cos the heat from the sun is now mild and the winds are blowing cool air all around us. Let us be grateful to the Most High God for the good weather He given us.

The theme of the month “Greater Glory” if you ask me is so timely. The grace of God does many wonders in the life of a Man. It lifts you from obscurity to limelight. You cannot be so engraced and not be blessed. It will not only bless you, you will have the mind of Christ living inside you. If that mind that is in Christ be in you, beloved, you can never be the same. How? Someone just asked.

Because Christ is light and in him there is no darkness and when Christ lives in you, darkness has no part in you and you cannot but move forward, be prosperous, be a blessing to yourself and people around you.

Beloved, having been redeemed from sin by the power in Christ through Grace, another conditionality in attending to Greater Glory as promised us by God is in Matt 6:33 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matt 6:33 (KJV)

Have you accepted Christ as your Lord and personal Savior? If yes, you are good to go but if not, are you ready to accept Him now as your Lord and Saviour? Because Christ said, it was not right to give the children’s meat to dogs. Therefore, it means that is only a child that has the right to make a request from his or her parents. If you are a child, are you making sincere effort to be blessed by your Father, Who art in heaven? Are you asking rightly?

Col. 1:27 said that “Christ in us is the hope of our glory”. Where lies your glory, beloved? Behold our God, even our own God is able and willing to bless you just by your asking, what are you waiting for?

“God, even our own God.” Psalm 67:6

It is strange how little use we make of the spiritual blessings which God gives us, but it is stranger still how little use we make of God Himself. Though He is “our own God,” we apply ourselves but little to Him, and ask but little of Him.

How seldom do we ask counsel at the hands of the Lord! How often do we go about our business, without seeking His guidance! In our troubles how constantly do we strive to bear our burdens ourselves, instead of casting them upon the Lord, that He may sustain us! This is not because we may not, for the Lord seems to say, “I am thine, soul, come and make use of me as thou wilt; thou mayst freely come to my store, and the oftener the more welcome.”

It is our own fault if we make not free with the riches of our God. Then, since thou hast such a friend, and He invites thee, draw from Him daily. Never want whilst thou hast a God to go to; never fear or faint whilst thou hast God to help thee; go to thy treasure and take whatever thou needest—there is all that thou canst want. Learn the divine skill of making God all things to thee. He can supply thee with all, or, better still, He can be to thee instead of all. Let me urge thee, then, to make use of thy God. Make use of Him in prayer. Go to Him often, because He is thy God. O, wilt thou fail to use so great a privilege?

Fly to Him, tell Him all thy wants. Use Him constantly by faith at all times. If some dark providence has beclouded thee, use thy God as a “sun;” if some strong enemy has beset thee, find in Jehovah a “shield,” for He is a sun and shield to His people. If thou hast lost thy way in the mazes of life, use Him as a “guide,” for He will direct thee.

Whatever thou art, and wherever thou art, remember God is just what thou wantest, and just where thou wantest, and that He can do all thou wantest. For Jesus is king for ever and ever:

“The Lord is King for ever and ever.” Psalm 10:16

Jesus Christ is no despotic claimant of divine right, but He is really and truly the Lord’s anointed! “It hath pleased the Father that in Him should all fulness dwell.” God hath given to Him all power and all authority.

As the Son of man, He is now head over all things to His church, and He reigns over heaven, and earth, and hell, with the keys of life and death at His girdle. Certain princes have delighted to call themselves kings by the popular will, and certainly our Lord Jesus Christ is such in His church. If it could be put to the vote whether He should be King in the church, every believing heart would crown Him.

 O that we could crown Him more gloriously than we do! We would count no expense to be wasted that could glorify Christ. Suffering would be pleasure, and loss would be gain, if thereby we could surround His brow with brighter crowns, and make Him more glorious in the eyes of men and angels.

Yes, He shall reign. Long live the King! All hail to Thee, King Jesus! Go forth, ye virgin souls who love your Lord, bow at His feet, strew His way with the lilies of your love, and the roses of your gratitude: “Bring forth the royal diadem, and crown Him Lord of all.” Moreover, our Lord Jesus is King in Zion by right of conquest: He has taken and carried by storm the hearts of His people, and has slain their enemies who held them in cruel bondage.

In the Red Sea of His own blood, our Redeemer has drowned the Pharaoh of our sins: shall He not be King in Jeshurun? He has delivered us from the iron yoke and heavy curse of the law: shall not the Liberator be crowned? We are His portion, whom He has taken out of the hand of the Amorite with His sword and with His bow: who shall snatch His conquest from His hand?

All hail, King Jesus! we gladly own Thy gentle sway! Rule in our hearts for ever, Thou lovely Prince of Peace.

Beloved, in this new month destined for your greatness, be rightly assured that “Christ in you is the hope of your glory.” so make every effort to walk with Him and you will be amazed at what you will become.

Beloved, could you please sing along with me “All Hail The Power Of Jesus’ Name”.

ALL HAIL THE POWER OF JESUS’ NAME

All hail the pow’r of Jesus’ name!

Let angels prostrate fall;

Bring forth the royal diadem,

And crown Him Lord of all;

Bring forth the royal diadem,

And crown Him Lord of all!

Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race,

Ye ransomed from the fall,

Hail Him who saves you by His grace,

And crown Him Lord of all;

Hail Him who saves you by His grace,

And crown Him Lord of all!

Let ev’ry kindred, ev’ry tribe,

On this terrestrial ball,

To Him all majesty ascribe,

And crown Him Lord of all;

To Him all majesty ascribe,

And crown Him Lord of all!

O that with yonder sacred throng

We at His feet may fall!

We’ll join the everlasting song,

And crown Him Lord of all;

We’ll join the everlasting song,

And crown Him Lord of all!

Remain blessed in the Lord.
