Thank You Jesus
Thank You My God
Whatever I am now, it is by Your grace
Many are dying, many are perishing
Whatever I am now, it is by Your grace.
Father, we offer this song of thanksgiving unto You this morning, let it be accepted to You O! My God in the Name of Jesus Amen!
Gracious Father, who is like You, You are beautiful for all situation, heaven and earth are full of Your glory. Hosanna in the highest, blessed is Your Holy Name.
We thank You for answers to prayers (Jas 5:16) and Your faith that worketh in us to trust You (Gal 5:6).Thank You for Your glory and grace in our lives (Ps 84:11). We blessed Your Holy Name.
Beloved, you are blessed of the Father, for He delights in you to do you good. “Lift of your heads O ye gates; and be lift up ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in”. So shall all gates and doors hindering your progresses in life be lifted that the King of glory shall come in. The Lord Strong and Might. The Lord Mighty in battle, the Lord of hosts; He is the King of glory.
My beloved, just believe God and it shall be well with you. His grace is sufficient to bear you through. Hang on, it will not be long and your Lord cometh and He shall be thou everlasting light (Isa 60:20).
The arms of flesh will fail you, your strength will fail you but God will never never fail you. Ride on and see how sufficient is His grace for you:
But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me.—2 Corinthians 12:9
Human strength is a strong deterrent to trusting in Christ. When we rely on our own strength, resources, and knowledge, we assume we can handle situations without help from God. We tend to divide problems into two categories: problems that we know require God’s help and problems we think we can handle on our own.
Paul had a tenacious personality and an exceptionally strong will. He courageously faced angry mobs as he traveled far and wide to promote the cause of Christ. He had spent the first half of his life serving God in his own strength. However, once God gained his attention, Paul had to learn to rely on God’s strength and not his own.
Paul was afflicted with a thorn in the flesh (2 Cor. 12:7). Whatever this was, it humbled him. He had performed incredible miracles, even raising the dead, but he could not remove the affliction that God had given him, an affliction that made him depend on God. The world had seen what Paul could do in his own strength, and it was horrifying! Now God wanted to exercise His power through Paul’s life. When Paul thought he was strong, he neglected to rely upon God’s strength. Only in his weakness did Paul trust implicitly in God.
If you feel strong in an area of your life, beware! Often your strength, rather than your weakness, hinders you from trusting God. God will bring you to a point of weakness if that is what it takes to bring you to trust in Him. Do not despise your weakness, for it leads you to trust in God’s strength.
Beloved, whatever you are passing through here on earth is to help to form your character for the final rapture of the saints. Sometimes God allow certain things in our lives just for us to constanly know He is charge. He does that also to know your heart. You are naturally drawn to what you like. So if you are on the Lord side, the proof will soon be evident, like your father Abraham, you will show God how trusting He is and He will call you His friend like He did to your father, Abraham and your will reflect His beauty:
“As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.” Ps. 17:15
The portion of other men fills their bodies, and enriches their children, but the portion of the believer is of another sort. Men of the world have their treasure in this world, but men of the world to come look higher and further.
Our possession is twofold. We have God’s presence here and His likeness hereafter. Here we behold the face of the Lord in righteousness, for we are justified in Christ Jesus. Oh, the joy of beholding the face of a reconciled God! The glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ yields us Heaven below, and it will be to us the Heaven of Heaven above.
But seeing does not end it: we are to be changed into that which we gaze upon. We shall sleep a while and then wake up to find ourselves as mirrors which reflect the beauties of our Lord. Faith sees God with a transforming look. The heart receives the image of Jesus into its own depths, till the character of Jesus is imprinted on the soul.
This is satisfaction. To see God and to be like Him — what more can I desire? David’s assured confidence is here by the Holy Ghost made to be the Lord’s promise. I believe it. I expect it. Lord, vouchsafe it. Amen.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
