O my Redeemer liveth, He liveth forever more. What can I say unto the Lord, all I have to say is Thank You Lord! For Your Kindness, Love, Mercies, Patience, Protections, Provisions, Deliverance, Healings, Blessings all through this month. Thank You Lord, we are most grateful to You Lord.
Beloved, the Lord is compassionate to us and whereof we are glad. We sign off this month today being Friday and the last in the month. How fast the month went by, but not without the remarkable works of the Lord in our lives, families, careers, ministries and businesses. Praise God.
Each day, we witness God’s goodness, His Faithfulness and kindness in our lives. We all have testimonies to share on the Lord’s doings in our lives. Thank you Lord for waking us each day and defending us all through the day. You frustrated the plans of the wicked concerning us, You did not allow them to perform their enterprise. Glory be to Your Holy Name!
Is someone singing praise to the King of kings, I AM that I AM, Almighty God. Is possible we cannot see any reason to be grateful or even be praiseful but I tell you, the life you are living is not your own but you are giving. If the owner comes for it, you must tender it, no matter all the plans and agenda you have set to achieve.
I lost a very dear aunty this month, she came into town with plans and other activities that will occupy her while she is out of her station but behold shortly after her arrival on the first of this month, The owner of her life came calling and she bowed out after a brief illness even as she was recovering. She was laid to rest last weekend.
Also this week, a friend lost a brother and according to her account, he was found him making a call while he breathe his last. So my dear what more can we recount but to always give thanks to God who spare us against all odd and preserved us from all the fiery darts of the devil. We are not better than those that had ahead of us but for His mercies that kept us.
Whatever you are trusting God that is yet to happen, continue believing Him that it will come to past, but I want to add quickly “please make sure that while you are waiting for God’s intervention that you are getting prepared for the blessing.” Get doing what will make you to seize the opportunity once is thrown at you.
In addition on our theme for the month “A New Heart and A New Spirit” I want to add that it is your duty to guard “the New Heart and the New Spirit”. If you fail, the enemy of your soul will invade your heart and pollute it again. Please be diligent in keeping Watch over the door of your heart, for you become what your heart is thinking.
As a ministry, we lay emphasis on guiding your heart. The devil come whispering things or making ungodly suggestions that you should not allow into your heart. Once you give him a foothold, he comes in full and until he ruins the individual, he will not depart. Please guide your heart with all diligence for there lies your life; your will power to live. More on this:
Guard Your Heart
“Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life.” (Proverbs 4:23a)
Ah, the “heart“… that is where our problems lie, is it not?
The heart here represents your ethical center, your intellectual center: What you think, what is going on with your will, your perceptions of yourself and your knowledge of God.
The condition of your heart is critical because what goes on there determines the course of your life.
So… guard what is happening in your HEART with all diligence.
Picture your physical heart pumping blood through the arteries to the extremities of the body. The health of the heart determines the health of the body.
So it is with your spiritual heart. What goes on there affects all the extremities of your life.
Want to keep your heart pure? Then check your ACTIONS in three areas:
- Your speech:
“Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put devious lips far from you.” (Proverbs 4:24)
QUESTION: Is your speech truthful? Straightforward?… Or misleading?
- Your eyes:
“Let your eyes look directly ahead, and let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you.” (Proverbs 4:5)
QUESTION: Are you looking only at things that enhance your mind and your morals?
… Or do you have wandering eyes?
- Your path:
“Watch the path of your feet and all your ways will be established. Do not turn to the right nor to the left; turn your foot from evil.” (Proverbs 4:26)
QUESTION: Are you only going to places that keep your heart pure… Or are you drifting into questionable areas?
Beloved, answer the above question and keep watch over them. Ensure that you do not drift away from the sight of the Lord, for He watches over all your actions. He is everywhere, on the mountain, in the valley, on the sea, our God is there, you cannot hide it from Him.
The Lord will frustrate all the works of the wicked against you (Ps 2:1-5). You might seem an easy conquest to them but the Lord will surprise all your enemies. Read on:
“Whereas the Lord was there.” Ezekiel 35:10
Edom’s princes saw the whole country left desolate, and counted upon its easy conquest; but there was one great difficulty in their way—quite unknown to them—”The Lord was there“; and in His presence lay the special security of the chosen land.
Whatever may be the machinations and devices of the enemies of God’s people, there is still the same effectual barrier to thwart their design. The saints are God’s heritage, and He is in the midst of them, and will protect His own. What comfort this assurance yields us in our troubles and spiritual conflicts! We are constantly opposed, and yet perpetually preserved!
How often Satan shoots his arrows against our faith, but our faith defies the power of hell’s fiery darts; they are not only turned aside, but they are quenched upon its shield, for “the Lord is there.” Our good works are the subjects of Satan’s attacks. A saint never yet had a virtue or a grace which was not the target for hellish bullets: whether it was hope bright and sparkling, or love warm and fervent, or patience all-enduring, or zeal flaming like coals of fire, the old enemy of everything that is good has tried to destroy it. The only reason why anything virtuous or lovely survives in us is this, “the Lord is there.”
If the Lord be with us through life, we need not fear for our dying confidence; for when we come to die, we shall find that “the Lord is there“; where the billows are most tempestuous, and the water is most chill, we shall feel the bottom, and know that it is good: our feet shall stand upon the Rock of Ages when time is passing away.
Beloved, from the first of a Christian’s life to the last, the only reason why he does not perish is because “the Lord is there.” When the God of everlasting love shall change and leave His elect to perish, then may the Church of God be destroyed; but not till then, because it is written, Jehovah Shammah, “The Lord is there.”
Beloved, you are not consumed because the Lord is there. You have scaled the two months in 2015 because the Lord is there. So will you also scaled the remaining months if the Lord tarries in the Name of Jesus.
Go on for the remaining part of the day praising God, that seeming mountain before you will level out. He has done great things in the past, this one will not be impossible for Him to handle, be focus, get prepare, so that when eventually the Lord appear, He will meet you ready for your desire miracles and you will launch out to His own glory.
Finally, brethren see you next month by God’s grace.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
