When I look around me, I will see my Lord Jesus; look around me, I will see my Lord Jesus. When I look around me, I will see my Lord Jesus; I will see my Lord Jesus.// Amen! Alleluia, Amen! Alleluia Amen!. Amen! Alleluia, Amen! Alleluia Amen!. Amen! Alleluia, Amen! Alleluia Amen!

Heavenly Father, we thank You, we blessed Your Holy Name, we worship You for Who You are. Thank You for another beautiful week, another morning You have made us to be part of, we are grateful, we shout alleluia to Your Holy Name forever and ever.

Beloved, what a Mighty God we serve, the God of love and peace, the God that giveth grace and glory, lift up His Name forever and ever. Lift up your voice and worship Him Who preserved you from all evil. He is worthy to praise forever more.

We ended last week learning that the loving God makes you a willing tools in His Hand. It was however reveal to us that some are not willing to go through the process because of past experiences they had in the past.

Today’s teaching is going to handle those things that we cannot handle or let go. If you are still hurting badly please read my post on 15th of this month and the Spirit of God will help you further, praise God.

The Word of are Yea and Amen! His promises are as sure as a Rock. Beloved, are cast down? Or are there things in your life you need to cast down? The Word of God is coming your way today to help you. It coming to help your infirmities.

No doubt there are situations in life that you and I may not be able to handle because we operate in the physical, your mind is a afraid but your Spirit man knows the end from the beginning and therefore is not afraid (Shared before now on 3rd February, please refer to it for further help and understanding).

Remember, that the Word of God is yea and Amen! So if God says it; He will do it. Only be available for His touch. During Jesus ministration while on earth, on one occasion he asked “do you believe am able to do this.”

Do we then say that unbelief is one of our major setback in our Christian race? If that is, then, we should be ready also to cry back to the Lord to help our unbelief. He will do so. Sometime, we want to impress God (nothing wrong with that) but don’t forget that He made you and therefore knows you more than you know yourself.

So where you cannot make it, where you finding it difficult to continue, stretch out your and cry for help from Him, He will do just that. Don’t forget He is our Present help in time of need. Praise God.

He is saying now “I will comfort you.” Today’s ministration is lifting someone out the mire clay; out of the pit and is setting him/her top. If you are the  one give a shout offering to the Lord! Or you know someone that needs this message please do not hesitate to forward it to such one before you close your tab/mail. God bless you.

“God, that comforteth those that are cast down.” 2Corinthians 7:6

 

And who comforteth like Him? Go to some poor, melancholy, distressed child of God; tell him sweet promises, and whisper in his ear choice words of comfort; he is like the deaf adder, he listens not to the voice of the charmer, charm he never so wisely.

He is drinking gall and wormwood, and comfort him as you may, it will be only a note or two of mournful resignation that you will get from him; you will bring forth no psalms of praise, no hallelujahs, no joyful sonnets. But let God come to His child, let Him lift up his countenance, and the mourner’s eyes glisten with hope. Do you not hear him sing—

“‘Tis paradise, if thou art here;

If thou depart, ’tis hell?”

You could not have cheered him: but the Lord has done it; “He is the God of all comfort.” There is no balm in Gilead, but there is balm in God. There is no physician among the creatures, but the Creator is Jehovah-rophi. It is marvellous how one sweet word of God will make whole songs for Christians.

One word of God is like a piece of gold, and the Christian is the goldbeater, and can hammer that promise out for whole weeks. So, then, poor Christian, thou needest not sit down in despair. Go to the Comforter, and ask Him to give thee consolation. Thou art a poor dry well. You have heard it said, that when a pump is dry, you must pour water down it first of all, and then you will get water, and so, Christian, when thou art dry, go to God, ask Him to shed abroad His joy in thy heart, and then thy joy shall be full.

Do not go to earthly acquaintances, for you will find them Job’s comforters after all; but go first and foremost to thy “God, that comforteth those that are cast down,” and you will soon say, “In the multitude of my thoughts within me Thy comforts delight my soul.”

Even our Jesus Christ also needed much comfort as you need it now. He ran to no man but went to His Father in prayer and an angel was sent to strengthen Him. Holiness is not an antidote to temptation we will find out in the next message but God said He will help you. Jesus was helped; you will experience same if you are willing:

“Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.” Matthew 4:1

A Holy character does not avert temptation—Jesus was tempted. When Satan tempts us, his sparks fall upon tinder; but in Christ’s case, it was like striking sparks on water; yet the enemy continued his evil work. Now, if the devil goes on striking when there is no result, how much more will he do it when he knows what inflammable stuff our hearts are made of.

Though you become greatly sanctified by the Holy Ghost, expect that the great dog of hell will bark at you still. In the haunts of men we expect to be tempted, but even seclusion will not guard us from the same trial. Jesus Christ was led away from human society into the wilderness, and was tempted of the devil.

Solitude has its charms and its benefits, and may be useful in checking the lust of the eye and the pride of life; but the devil will follow us into the most lovely retreats. Do not suppose that it is only the worldly-minded who have dreadful thoughts and blasphemous temptations, for even spiritual-minded persons endure the same; and in the holiest position we may suffer the darkest temptation.

The utmost consecration of spirit will not insure you against Satanic temptation. Christ was consecrated through and through. It was His meat and drink to do the will of Him that sent Him: and yet He was tempted! Your hearts may glow with a seraphic flame of love to Jesus, and yet the devil will try to bring you down to Laodicean lukewarmness.

If you will tell me when God permits a Christian to lay aside his armour, I will tell you when Satan has left off temptation. Like the old knights in war time, we must sleep with helmet and breastplate buckled on, for the arch-deceiver will seize our first unguarded hour to make us his prey.

The Lord keep us watchful in all seasons, and give us a final escape from the jaw of the lion and the paw of the bear.

May the Lord shield us and help our infirmities in Jesus Name. Most Holy Jesus, You were tempted but yet You overcame, help us to overcome each time we are face with temptations from the evils ones in Jesus Name.

Beloved, this week is declared blessed in Jesus Name. Go in the Name of the Lord and return with testimonies. May the Lord send His help from the sanctuary, and strengthen Thee out of Zion; remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice. Grant thee according to thine own thy heart and fulfill all thy counsel in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
