I will lift up Your Name (I will lift up Your Name) I will lift up Your Name (I will lift up Your Name) I will lift up Your Name  above every other Name. 2x// Come and join me sing alleluia, Jehovah Jireh has done me well, come and join me sing alleluia, Jehovah Jireh has done me well.

Thank You Father for your faithfulness endureth forever, thank You for a new beautiful day to Praise and worship You in all that we do. Thank You for the miracles that only can do, I bow before you to worship You dear Lord. Thank You for the miracles that you will constantly perform in session. Thank you for last year faith clinic, we are thanking You ahead for the miracles of this session we will encounter this year. May your Name alone be Praise.

Beloved, how are doing? You are welcome to the first faith clinic of this year. I am so glad to be there. This is a place where the growth and miracle happens regularly. It has been a source of comfort to me and am sure you are always looking for to it. Praise God. This year will not delivery less in Jesus Name.

Considering where we are today, we decide to teach a topic that will help us to focus on what has been promised us as a ministry.

God only can guarantee victory. Therefore trusting in no other is the surest way to experiencing what has been promised us. The victory God grants is usually stress free and exciting but the instruction that precede the victory usually is not what we can humanly evaluate.

When God told King Jehoshaphat to go to war against Ammonites, Moabites and Mount Seir through Jahaziel to go down to fight but they do not need to fight but position yourselves, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord. He appointed some singer and some others to Praise the splendor of His holiness instructed as against carrying spears and armors to war.

Eventually victory was theirs at the end and they also have plunder at the end.

It takes trust to walk with God. Oftentimes we may not see the whole picture from where you are standing but you have One who sees the whole picture.

Beloved, once again we want to encourage you to place your trust only on God who can do all things. He has promised to do us good, we just have to believe and ask for the grace to walk with daily.

You discover soon that there is a difference between needs and wants. Let’s discover more:

“Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.” Matt. 26:33

“Why,” cries one, “this is no promise of God.” Just so, but it was a promise of man, and therefore it came to nothing. Peter thought that he was saying what he should assuredly carry out; but a promise which has no better foundation than a human resolve will fall to the ground. No sooner did temptations arise than Peter denied his Master, and used oaths to confirm his denial.

What is man’s word? An earthen pot broken with a stroke. What is your own resolve? A blossom, which, with God’s care, may come to fruit, but which, left to itself, will fall to the ground with the first wind that moves the bough.

On man’s word hang only what it will bear.

On thine own resolve depend not at all.

On the promise of thy God hang time and eternity, this world and the next, thine all and the all of all thy beloved ones.

This volume is a checkbook for believers, and this page is meant as a warning as to what bank they draw upon, and whose signature they accept. Rely upon Jesus without limit. Trust not thyself nor any born of woman, beyond due bounds; but trust thou only and wholly in the Lord.

Beloved, the word of men can fail but the Word of God will never fail. He has promised us He will never fail us. Praise God. Let’s keep going:

God Has Promised To Supply All Our Needs

 

That’s what worries me, because His idea of “needs” may not square with my idea of “wants”.

“Godliness with contentment is a great means of gain… If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content.” (1 Timothy 6:6, 8)

My problem is that I not only want food and covering, but also a full menu of choices as to what kind of food… and covering He is to supply. Israel had the same problem:

“In their heart they put God to the test, by asking for food according to their desire.” (Psalm 78:18)

Then there is the problem of wanting to be rich:

“Those who desire to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction… ” (1 Timothy 6:9)

I wonder if our appetite for wealth has something to do with our desire to have more than one day’s provision at a time. Christ taught us to pray for “daily bread.” (See Matthew 6:11) In supplying the Israelites with manna, God allowed them to pick up only one day’s provision at a time. If they attempted more, the manna rotted! (See Exodus 16:20). Obviously, God was dealing with their greed and teaching them to trust Him one day at a time.

So, what does “godliness with contentment” mean? Try this:

“That I will view work as a sacred trust and responsibility. That I will conscientiously seek to provide for my family while balancing the other legitimately competing demands in my life (family, church, ministry, personal growth, etc.). I will then rest the issue of income and standard of living with Him. I and my family will determine to be content with however and with whatever He chooses to provide (whether it is a day’s provision at a time, or a year’s).

COVETOUSNESS IS DISCONTENTEDLY WANTING AND EVEN DEMANDING AS A RIGHT THAT GOD ALLOW ME TO LIVE AT A LEVEL THAT CATERS TO MY WANTS. When these “rights” are not met, I become discontent… even angry. AND WITH THAT GOD IS NOT WELL PLEASED.

Beloved, are we willing to live day by day? Is not easy especially if you have been opportune to plan one year ahead before now, then God brought you to point where you have to depend on Him daily on what to eat/ spend and meet needs.

So there is need for us to grow our faith in God and trust in Him alone. God searches the heart. May we not be found wanting in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord
