Thank You, thank You Lord, thank You Lord thank You Lord for everything You have done.// We lift Your Name higher, we lift Your Name higher, we lift Your Name higher, we lift Your Name, we lift Your Name higher. Shout alleluia, alleluia, alleluia , shout alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
Father we thank You, we bless Your Holy Name, we honour You we give You praise for Who You are. You are great yes You are. You created the whole universe, You made man in Your own image to worship and adore You. You are Great Lord, blessed be Your Name on high.
Miracle working Father, we bow before You, thank You for answers to prayers. thank You for making a way where there is no way. thank You for diverse healing and deliverances You have done in the lives of Your children, glory, adoration be unto thee forever and ever in Jesus Name.
Beloved, how did go yesterday in the place of prayer? I believe you had a nice time in His Presence? One beautiful thing about God is that no one comes into His Presence and remain the same. No matter how hopeless that situation may be, in the Presence of God, there is hope. There is healing, there is restoration, there is power, there deliverance, there is creation. Nothing is too difficult for Him to do. Nothing is impossible for Him also.
All you need do is to abide by the message of today “have faith in God.” are you wiling to do that? I know there are situations that you will want to take laws into your hand, to walk before God will be difficult while the solution is right there in your face and all you need do is to stretch forth your hand and is done.
But, there will be a reoccurring decimal, will God receive glory in it? Is it born out faith or otherwise?
Faith grows, that is what we must focus on, there are different faith level for every miracle we believe God to do. Some things you are believing God for might just happen as you praying for it, some you will have to wait awhile, while some years. As the time is extending, you need a firm resolve to hold on and keep holding on to God.
If you still want further clarification ask Abraham, who received what was promised after twenty-five years of promise. Ask David who waited till forty years to get to throne after he was anointed.
However, the fundamental thing in waiting for God’s promises, is be sure that He made promise to you. If He did, He will always honour it. Because God is slack concerning His promise (2 Pet 3:9). What He said He will do; that is what He will do.
Beloved, we need to be strong not only in the place of prayer but also but also in the place of faith. We must hold on to God, Who can do all things and not fail us. Many arsenals will rise to challenge your faith in God including those who are so close to you but God will help you to overcome if you will continually hold on to Him through faith.
Beloved, have faith in God and see how glorious your end will be. Let’s discover more from below
“Have faith in God.” Mark 11:22
Faith is the foot of the soul by which it can march along the road of the commandments. Love can make the feet move more swiftly; but faith is the foot which carries the soul. Faith is the oil enabling the wheels of holy devotion and of earnest piety to move well; and without faith the wheels are taken from the chariot, and we drag heavily.
With faith I can do all things; without faith I shall neither have the inclination nor the power to do anything in the service of God. If you would find the men who serve God the best, you must look for the men of the most faith. Little faith will save a man, but little faith cannot do great things for God.
Poor Little-faith could not have fought “Apollyon;” it needed “Christian” to do that. Poor Little-faith could not have slain “Giant Despair;” it required “Great-heart’s” arm to knock that monster down. Little faith will go to heaven most certainly, but it often has to hide itself in a nut-shell, and it frequently loses all but its jewels.
Little-faith says, “It is a rough road, beset with sharp thorns, and full of dangers; I am afraid to go;” but Great-faith remembers the promise, “Thy shoes shall be iron and brass; as thy days, so shall thy strength be:” and so she boldly ventures. Little-faith stands desponding, mingling her tears with the flood; but Great-faith sings, “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee:” and she fords the stream at once.
Would you be comfortable and happy? Would you enjoy religion? Would you have the religion of cheerfulness and not that of gloom? Then “have faith in God.” If you love darkness, and are satisfied to dwell in gloom and misery, then be content with little faith; but if you love the sunshine, and would sing songs of rejoicing, covet earnestly this best gift, “great faith.”
Are you ready to o the way of great faith? It has its own price- the price of tenacity, the price of perseverance. Oftentimes it is difficult to attend with natural strength except God help you. We must therefore continue in an upright ways so that God will look down upon us with pity. Some trust in chariots, some trust in horses but what will a child of God do? let continue, we may find the answer in the next message:
“lt is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man.” Psalm 118:8
Doubtless the reader has been tried with the temptation to rely upon the things which are seen, instead of resting alone upon the invisible God. Christians often look to man for help and counsel, and mar the noble simplicity of their reliance upon their God. Does this evening’s portion meet the eye of a child of God anxious about temporals, then would we reason with him awhile. You trust in Jesus, and only in Jesus, for your salvation, then why are you troubled?
“Because of my great care.” Is it not written, “Cast thy burden upon the Lord”? “Be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication make known your wants unto God.” Cannot you trust God for temporals? “Ah! I wish I could.” If you cannot trust God for temporals, how dare you trust Him for spirituals?
Can you trust Him for your soul’s redemption, and not rely upon Him for a few lesser mercies? Is not God enough for thy need, or is His all-sufficiency too narrow for thy wants? Dost thou want another eye beside that of Him who sees every secret thing? Is His heart faint? Is His arm weary? If so, seek another God; but if He be infinite, omnipotent, faithful, true, and all-wise, why gaddest thou abroad so much to seek another confidence? Why dost thou rake the earth to find another foundation, when this is strong enough to bear all the weight which thou canst ever build thereon?
Christian, mix not only thy wine with water, do not alloy thy gold of faith with the dross of human confidence. Wait thou only upon God, and let thine expectation be from Him. Covet not Jonah’s gourd, but rest in Jonah’s God. Let the sandy foundations of terrestrial trust be the choice of fools, but do thou, like one who foresees the storm, build for thyself an abiding place upon the Rock of Ages.
Beloved, what is your resolve? My own resolve is wait until my time come. To wait for the God of my salvation; for I know my God will hear me. To remember the Name of the Lord our God. (Job 14:14; Mic 7:7; Ps 20:7).
If that is your own resolve then you are on the way to greater height. The Greater Glory agenda for the year will be fulfill in your life. Praise the Name of the Lord.
Beloved, be strong in the Lord your Saviour. Though the enemy might rejoice over you but it is but awhile for the Lord your God will pour out His wrath on them at the due time.
Remain in the faith and God will visit you soon. Praise the Name of the Lord. Remember it is better to put confidence in God than man because man may fail you. man will disappoint you but God will never leave us or forsake you. God will never let you down, He will always encourage you so keep on trusting Him; keep on waiting on Him.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
