Good morning Father, Good morning Son, Good morning Holy Spirit. Precious Redeemer, we, your children are bowing down before You. Who can battle with the Lord, in everything You are God. In all situations, there is no one like You. In the beginning You are God, in the end You are still God, for You know the end of a matter from the very beginning. We love You Lord.

All Power, all Glory, all Honour to You, Holy Father, we worship You, be Thou glorified.

Dearly beloved, indeed our God is Faithful and Faithful is His Name. Whatever it may be, our God is a good God. Yes, He is. Faithful is His Name, even in that unseemly difficult situation, He is God. Though the light seems so dim and no lay of light maybe seen, He is still God.

No one can question Him for He orders everything to work according to His plan and purpose. Lord, the grace to accept your will even when it’s so difficult to comprehend grant unto us this day in Jesus Name, Amen!

The Lord is speaking peace to someone this morning, the Holy Spirit is comforting someone this morning, just know that He is God. The Lord wants you to see Him in that situation right now and your healing will begin and be perfected in Jesus Name, Amen.

Beloved, how faithful are you? In all God has commanded you to do, how faithful have you been in doing all that is required of you by your Maker. Have you been faithful in dealings with others in everything?

It is so important to search yourself or ask the Holy Spirit to help you for a thorough and comprehensive search. Whatever the Holy Spirit is convicting you of, be humble enough to repent of it and let that repentance lead you to God. Have a godly sorrow that leads you back to your Creator, not far from Him.

We are going to consider two characters in the bible though they had genuine repentance of their sins but they ended differently:

For godly grief produces a repentance not to be regretted and leading to salvation, but worldly grief produces death.—2 Corinthians 7:10

There is a difference between worldly sorrow and godly sorrow, though both are deeply felt. You can feel genuine sorrow over something you have done. Your mind can become consumed with your failure and offense against God and others. Judas felt this kind of sorrow. He betrayed the Son of God for thirty pieces of silver, the standard price of a slave. Yet his sorrow did not lead him to repent and to seek restoration with his fellow disciples, but rather to a lonely field where, in his anguish, he took his own life (Matt. 27:3–5). Judas carried his sorrow to his grave.

How different Peter’s sorrow was! Peter, too, failed Jesus on the night of His crucifixion. Peter also went out and wept bitterly (Luke 22:62). Yet Peter returned to Jesus and reaffirmed his love for Him (John 21:15–17). Peter was not only remorseful, he was also repentant. Peter’s life changed. There is no record of Peter ever denying his Lord again, even when he was persecuted and threatened with death. Peter repented, turned his life around, and never committed that sin again.

Don’t allow mere unhappiness over what you have done to rob you of genuine repentance. You can blame yourself and be angry with yourself for the sins you have committed, but that is not repentance. Allow the Holy Spirit to reveal to you the gravity of your sins. Ask the Spirit to clearly show you how God views your character. When you see your sin from God’s perspective, you will experience godly sorrow.

Beloved, when the Spirit of God had lead you to see your evil ways do not go back to it and except God to understand. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you to stay off it, He will, if we are sincere. Always remember, temptations are bound to be, even Jesus in all His Godly state was tempted.

The act of being tempted is no sin but yielding to the temptation is what makes it a sin. So be careful not to grieve the Holy Spirit of God by going back to your vomit, He knows what He made you from and He is willing to help your infirmities. Consider again how merciful our God is in His dealings with us His children:

“And the evening and the morning were the first day.” Genesis 1:5

The evening was “darkness” and the morning was “light,” and yet the two together are called by the name that is given to the light alone! This is somewhat remarkable, but it has an exact analogy in spiritual experience. In every believer there is darkness and light, and yet he is not to be named a sinner because there is sin in him, but he is to be named a saint because he possesses some degree of holiness.

This will be a most comforting thought to those who are mourning their infirmities, and who ask, “Can I be a child of God while there is so much darkness in me?” Yes; for you, like the day, take not your name from the evening, but from the morning; and you are spoken of in the word of God as if you were even now perfectly holy as you will be soon. You are called the child of light, though there is darkness in you still. You are named after what is the predominating quality in the sight of God, which will one day be the only principle remaining.

Observe that the evening comes first. Naturally we are darkness first in order of time, and the gloom is often first in our mournful apprehension, driving us to cry out in deep humiliation, “God be merciful to me, a sinner.” The place of the morning is second, it dawns when grace overcomes nature. It is a blessed aphorism of John Bunyan, “That which is last, lasts for ever.” That which is first, yields in due season to the last; but nothing comes after the last.

So that though you are naturally darkness, when once you become light in the Lord, there is no evening to follow; “thy sun shall no more go down.” The first day in this life is an evening and a morning; but the second day, when we shall be with God, for ever, shall be a day with no evening, but one, sacred, high, eternal noon.

My prayer this morning for you, is that you never look back, turn back, or go back to your vomit again in Jesus Name Amen!

Move forward and have dominion in every areas of your life from this day forward in Jesus Name. Our God is faithful to keep you, run to Him for He will run to you, if you stretch your hands, He will lift you up and will never let you go. Praise the Name of the Lord, Alleluia!

Go in dominion this week over all that concerns you, trusting in His power. Amen!

Remain blessed in the Lord.
