Glorious God, how excellent is loving kindness, O God! The One Who is and is yet to come. The Alpha and Omega, the Ancient One. All glory, all honour, adoration be unto Thee.
We glorify Your Holy Name, we magnify Whom You Are. The heavens and earth stand at your Word. The Mountains and the rivers each maintains its boundaries just at Word from the Master.
Father, we praise Your Name, we adore Your Majesty forever and ever and ever more. Our God answers when we call Him, when we call Him in Truth and in Spirit.
Did you pray for the nation where you are residing as we were told yesterday? Everything you agonized in pray will manifest at their due time and seasons. For He hears us when we call on Him in truth.
Beloved, have you been trusting in yourself for success, breakthroughs, overcoming, standing strong? How far have you fared? The staying power and the hand that wrought all miracles you can ever boost of, is God.
Today, marks my daddy’s first year anniversary since God called him into His glory. Did we miss him? Yes! Did we lack anything? No! Because God is true to His Word –Prov 18:10; Ps 37:37- 40; 25; Prov 14:11;26; Prov 20:7; 15:29. He is truly a guardian of the Fatherless. Please, pray for the family he left behind and God will honor you:
“In thee the fatherless findeth mercy.” Hos. 14:3
This is an excellent reason for casting away all other confidences and relying upon the Lord alone. When a child is left without its natural protector, our God steps in and becomes his guardian: so also when a man has lost every object of dependence, he may cast himself upon the living God and find in Him all that he needs.
Orphans are cast upon the fatherhood of God, and He provides for them. The writer of these pages knows what it is to hang on the bare arm of God, and he bears his willing witness that no trust is so well warranted by facts, or so sure to be rewarded by results, as trust in the invisible but ever living God.
Some children who have fathers are not much the better off because of them, but the fatherless with God are rich. Better have God and no other friend than all the patrons on the earth and no God. To be bereaved of the creature is painful, but so long as the Lord remains the fountain of mercy to us, we are not truly orphaned.
Let fatherless children plead the gracious word for this morning, and let all who have been bereaved of visible support do the same. Lord, let me find mercy in thee! The more needy and helpless I am, the more confidently do I appeal to thy loving heart.
Beloved, you may not have lost a father or anyone dear to you but if you trust in God He will uplift you and make your joyful. For in His presence there is fullness of joy. Do not be discourage even when things are not going the way you desired. He knows the best for each of us. A righteous man even when he is long gone, the Lord protects and provide for his home. This is a promise and God will never fail to uphold His Word (Prov 14:11). Therefore do not be weary in well doing for at the due season you will surely reap, for He will bless the home of the righteous man:
“He blesseth the habitation of the just.” Prov. 3:33
He fears the Lord, and therefore he comes under the divine protection even as to the roof which covers himself and his family. His home is an abode of love, a school of holy training, and a place of heavenly light. In it there is a family altar where the name of the Lord is daily had in reverence. Therefore the Lord blesses his habitation. It may be a humble cottage or a lordly mansion; but the Lord’s blessing comes because of the character of the inhabitant, and not because of the size of the dwelling.
That house is most blest in which the master and mistress are God-fearing people; but a son or daughter or even a servant may bring a blessing on a whole household. The Lord often preserves, prospers, and provides for a family for the sake of one or two in it, who are just persons in His esteem, because His grace has made them so. Beloved, let us have Jesus for our constant guest even as the sisters of Bethany had, and then we shall be blessed indeed.
Let us look to it that in all things we are just — in our trade, in our judgment of others, in our treatment of neighbors, and in our own personal character. A just God cannot bless unjust transactions.
Where did your faith leave you today? Are you at the verge of giving up. No, don’t give up on God, for if He do not forsake His promises to the dead, why will He forsake the living – that is YOU. Do not allow the devil to mislead you.
Stay connected to the source of your faith – Word. As long as you are connected to Him, you will keep the faith. The devil distract us to get us disconnected from God, he turns you against God, so that he can turn God against you (everyone that was destroyed in the bible first, forsakes God and in their sinful nature and folly, God destroyed them (2 Chr 26: 4 -15; 16 – 21)).
So watch out, so that you will not betray Christ as did Judas Iscariot and later hung himself.
Finally, we are grateful to You Lord, having been with us in the last one year; Your protection and provisions faileth not, with Thanksgiving on our lips, we pray that Your continual guidance and presence be made manifest in our lives and families in Jesus Name. Amen!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
