Who is like unto Thee O Lord! Who is like unto Thee O Lord among the gods who is like Thee, You are glorious in holiest, fearful in praises, doing You wonders alleluia! Today O, I will lift up my hands in praise x2 O my God, You  are always here for me, Almighty God You are my only hope no matter what I face when troubles comes my way, I will praise Your Name.

Father, I don’t know how to thank You Lord for Your faithfulness, goodness in my life. You are so awesome Lord. Thank You Father for fighting and winning this battle for us. Is only You Lord that would have would have done it for us. Thank You Lord. I don’t why You love us so. Thank You Father forever and ever.

Beloved, Thank you for being there for us. I sincerely appreciate your patient and your understanding. The enemy struck but one with God is majority. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.

He overcame for us so that we can also over come any situation that comes our way. I am so glad that Jesus loves me and you.

God did not spare His son but made him to be sin that knew no sin. You may not understand this if you have not been accused wrongly and punished in the process before the truth was known.

In all of these, Jesus did not defend Himself, He did not utter a word while they were persecuting Him. He held on and beared all the pains so that heaven’s agenda will be fulfilled.

The love of God so manifest itself as He made a sin just for our sake.

Beloved, do not let this great love be in vain but rather, arise and go to your Father and declare to him how you love him also. I know it will gladden His heart, He will open the flood gate of heaven and rain His blessings as showers from heaven.

Go and do as we just said. Read on:

This verse should startle us and cause us to tremble. It is not a verse to be read quickly and passed over. As Christians we are grateful to be forgiven of our sins. We are thankful we have been adopted as God’s children. Yet we will never comprehend the awesome price that Jesus paid to cleanse us of our sin and to give us His righteousness. How abhorrent was it for the sinless Son of God to have every sin of humanity placed upon Him? What love was required for the Father to watch His only Son bear the excruciating pain of our sin upon the cross?

The prophet Isaiah summarized the human condition: “We are all like an unclean thing, / And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags” (Isa. 64:6). Even the high priest, Joshua, in his exalted position among God’s people, was clothed in filthy rags before God (Zech. 3:3). The apostle Paul, who labored arduously to be righteous before God, realized that his most strenuous efforts to please God were no more valuable than rubbish (Phil. 3:4–10). The plight of humanity is that nothing we could ever do could satisfy God’s desire for righteousness. But the miracle of God’s mercy is that God exchanges our “filthy rags” for “rich robes” of righteousness (Zech. 3:4).

In this awesome exchange, God placed the sin of humanity upon His righteous Son. Jesus became so identified with our sin that Scripture says God made Him to be sin on our behalf. The holy Son of God could not possibly do more for us than this! Experiencing the Father’s wrath upon the sin He carried would have been more painful to endure than any human rejection or physical suffering.

Never take the righteousness God has given you for granted. Never take the forgiveness of your sin lightly. It cost God a terrible price in order to forgive you and make you righteous. Walk in a manner worthy of the righteousness He has given you. More below:

“Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the Lord.” Lamentations 3:40

The spouse who fondly loves her absent husband longs for his return; a long protracted separation from her lord is a semi-death to her spirit: and so with souls who love the Saviour much, they must see His face, they cannot bear that He should be away upon the mountains of Bether, and no more hold communion with them.

A reproaching glance, an uplifted finger will be grievous to loving children, who fear to offend their tender father, and are only happy in his smile. Beloved, it was so once with you. A text of Scripture, a threatening, a touch of the rod of affliction, and you went to your Father’s feet, crying, “Show me wherefore Thou contendest with me?” Is it so now?

Are you content to follow Jesus afar off? Can you contemplate suspended communion with Christ without alarm? Can you bear to have your Beloved walking contrary to you, because you walk contrary to Him? Have your sins separated between you and your God, and is your heart at rest? O let me affectionately warn you, for it is a grievous thing when we can live contentedly without the present enjoyment of the Saviour’s face.

Let us labour to feel what an evil thing this is—little love to our own dying Saviour, little joy in our precious Jesus, little fellowship with the Beloved! Hold a true Lent in your souls, while you sorrow over your hardness of heart. Do not stop at sorrow! Remember where you first received salvation. Go at once to the cross. There, and there only, can you get your spirit quickened.

No matter how hard, how insensible, how dead we may have become, let us go again in all the rags and poverty, and defilement of our natural condition. Let us clasp that cross, let us look into those languid eyes, let us bathe in that fountain filled with blood—this will bring back to us our first love; this will restore the simplicity of our faith, and the tenderness of our heart.

In the simplicity of our faith let us go to Him, as it was when we first believe. Let us go again rags, and poverty, let us clasp that cross and look unto Jesus the author and finisher of or faith. Believe the Lord and it will done to you according to His riches in glory. All Your sins absorbed, don’t not take it for granted.

May our faith be high enough to bring down the glory and let us receive from the Lord all that He had prepared for us Amen.

Lord, I thank You for helping us thus far by bring back Your Word to Your people. Thank You Lord. Thank You Lord for overcoming for us. Glory be to Your Name alone forever and ever.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
