Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, calling Father, Father, Father, Father. Calling Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Spirit.

Father, we glorify You because You are a Mighty God! Heaven and earth are full of Your glory, let everything that has breathe Praise Your Holy Name. Faithful Father I bow before Your Throne, thank You for the gift God life, thank You for being God indeed unto us, we bow before Thee, we reverence You, be thou exalted forever in Jesus Name.

Beloved, how was your weekend? Hope you had a wonderful time of worship at the service yesterday? Mine was beautiful. Let continue to reverence God in worship with thanksgiving all the days of our life. Thank God for another opportunity to be part of His Divine plan. Glory be to Him alone.

Beloved, God’s ways are not our ways likewise His thoughts are not our thoughts. When He say a thing to us we must be sure of the direction He is leading us and never go on presumption or second guessing what He is doing, Praise the Lord!

The Lord of Host has promise us that with His Right Hand He will deliver us but we must find out from Him how He wants to do that and follow suit.

We might be experiencing some difficult moments in life some is to make us stronger and better others is to lead us on the path that will glorify His Name. In all of it when God is the one in charge He knows what He is doing all we need do is to follow Him. Praise the Lord.

He will deliver us from the furnace affliction and all the Praise will belong to Him. Faithful Father, excellent is Your Name, powerful is Your Name, Wonderful is Name. Let all glory be unto Thee alone in Jesus Name.

At the early part of our teaching in the year we announced to us that God leads His people through Revelation. That revelation is the wisdom of God. You will go far when you are operating with the wisdom of God but when you walk with your own or men intelligence you will discover that you will encounter problems.

The wisdom from above is far above rubies and diamond. It is having Jesus in your life as your Lord and personal Saviour. He will lead you all the way. You will never be ashamed. If you don’t want to confounded in life then this message is for you. Let us discover more from below:

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways.” [This is] the Lord’s declaration. “For as heaven is higher than earth, so My ways are higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”—Isaiah 55:8–9

 

Rarely does God do something exactly as we think He will. Our problem is that we try to second-guess God, saying, “Oh, now I know what God is planning to do!” Moses experienced this as he learned how God was going to deliver the Hebrews out of Egypt. God told him He would harden Pharaoh’s heart.

Yet, the result was not what Moses anticipated. Rather than allowing the Hebrews to leave, Pharaoh increased their hardship. Rather than becoming a hero among the Hebrews, Moses was despised by them for bringing greater suffering. Moses returned to the Lord and asked, “Lord, why have You brought trouble on this people? Why is it You have sent me?”(Exod. 5:22). Much of the frustration we experience as Christians has nothing to do with what God does or doesn’t do. It has everything to do, rather, with the false assumptions we make about how we think God will and should act.

Have you ever done the will of God and then things seemed to become worse? Moses completely misunderstood what the results of His obedience to God would be. When things did not turn out as he anticipated, Moses became discouraged. God had told Moses what to do, but He had not told Moses what the consequences would be.

It is foolish to attempt to do God’s work using your own “common sense.” God does not eliminate your common sense, He consecrates it. He gives you His wisdom so you can understand His ways.

As you look back on God’s activity in your life, you will recognize the supreme wisdom in how He has led you. As you look forward to what God may do, be careful you do not try to predict what He will do next. You may find yourself completely off the mark.

“I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.” Isaiah 48:10

 

Comfort thyself, tried believer, with this thought: God saith, “I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.” Does not the word come like a soft shower, assuaging the fury of the flame? Yea, is it not an asbestos armour, against which the heat hath no power? Let affliction come—God has chosen me.

Poverty, thou mayst stride in at my door, but God is in the house already, and He has chosen me. Sickness, thou mayst intrude, but I have a balsam ready—God has chosen me. Whatever befalls me in this vale of tears, I know that He has “chosen” me. If, believer, thou requirest still greater comfort, remember that you have the Son of Man with you in the furnace.

In that silent chamber of yours, there sitteth by your side One whom thou hast not seen, but whom thou lovest; and oftentimes when thou knowest it not, He makes all thy bed in thy affliction, and smooths thy pillow for thee. Thou art in poverty; but in that lovely house of thine the Lord of life and glory is a frequent visitor. He loves to come into these desolate places, that He may visit thee. Thy friend sticks closely to thee. Thou canst not see Him, but thou mayst feel the pressure of His hands.

Dost thou not hear His voice? Even in the valley of the shadow of death He says, “Fear not, I am with thee; be not dismayed, for I am thy God.” Remember that noble speech of Caesar: “Fear not, thou carriest Caesar and all his fortune.” Fear not, Christian; Jesus is with thee. In all thy fiery trials, His presence is both thy comfort and safety. He will never leave one whom He has chosen for His own. “Fear not, for I am with thee,” is His sure word of promise to His chosen ones in the “furnace of affliction.” Wilt thou not, then, take fast hold of Christ, and say—

“Through floods and flames, if Jesus lead,

I’ll follow where He goes.”

Yes! That is what it means to carry your cross and follow Him. Through flood and flames But He promise to go with you. Isn’t that beautiful. We should count it a privilege to walk with Christ our beloved, whose blood redeemed thee from everlasting damnation.

Trust the God of heaven and earth and it will be well with you. Nothing harm will over power you because He is in perfect control in Jesus Name Amen. may the Holy Spirit help us not to fail in our hour of temptation in Jesus Name.

On this note we declare this week blessed in the Name of the Lord. Go in this strength of the Lord and return with testimonies. The Lord will guide us and lead us in the path that He will direct us, even in the valley of shadow of death, we will fear no evil. That is your lots this week in Jesus Name. Praise the Lord somebody!!!!!!!!

Remain ever blessed in the Lord.
