Our help is in the Name of the Lord, Who made heaven an earth. Our God is our sufficiency, in Him is our refuge. He will not forsake us, even when He chasten, He will not chasten us forever.
We thank You Father, we blessed Your Holy Name. Let all the earth sing praises in the Highest to the Only One Who is and Who is yet to come. Glory be to Him in the highest.
What more can we say, a whole lot more to the King of kings, Lord of lords, the everlasting God. Just like yesterday, the ministry of the Word turns two years today.
Praise the Lord somebody! Shout alleluia! Our Father is so wonderful. We owe Him everything, I mean everything. Everything that make us up, we owe all to Him.
The Word ministration started exactly on this date, 28th November 2012 but the website came up in June the following year and up until today, our God has been Faithful to us.
Am sure this ministry has touch your life positively, all to the glory of our Father, Who art in Heaven.
As we are celebrating and rejoicing in the One, Who made it possible for us. Incidentally, today again is Friday and marks the end of the month for us in Mattersoftheheart, so we are thanking God and we are rejoicing over the various victories He own for us all through the month. The battle was fierce but our God is a consuming fire, nothing can stand before him without being consumed. O! glory be to God in the Highest.
They took counsel together against the children of God but their counsel was in vain because it was against the purpose and plans of God concerning us; His beloved children. “How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel. With boldness we will declare the Word, for the Lord shall be our everlasting light” Praise the Lord somebody! (Rom10:15; Acts 4:31; Isa 60:20)
Thank God for the month of grace, we will forever remain grateful to Him Who Alone, Who is worthy of our praise. The enemy fought too hard to end this ministry this month but “for the grace” that founded me. What testimony will I have before you? I know “God never fail and His mercies endureth forever”. God honour those that fear Him. Not that I am worthy but for His Name sake He put on me and the blood of His Jesus that was shed for me, He preserved me and keep the ministry alive. Father I thank You for I know, sooner than I can ever think and imagine You will glorified Your Name among Your people forever.
You will indeed quench our thirst and the blood of Jesus that cleanse and purified will keep us from every attacks from the pit of hell.
Finally, at the end of our journey here on earth, we will hear “welcome, good and faithful servant” and that is my prayer of thanksgiving in Jesus’s Name I prayed. Amen!
Read more as the Lord through His servant will continue to pour water on them that are thirsty and need comfort:
“I will pour water upon him that is thirsty.” Isaiah 44:3
When a believer has fallen into a low, sad state of feeling, he often tries to lift himself out of it by chastening himself with dark and doleful fears. Such is not the way to rise from the dust, but to continue in it. As well chain the eagle’s wing to make it mount, as doubt in order to increase our grace.
It is not the law, but the gospel which saves the seeking soul at first; and it is not a legal bondage, but gospel liberty which can restore the fainting believer afterwards. Slavish fear brings not back the backslider to God, but the sweet wooings of love allure him to Jesus’ bosom.
Are you this day thirsting for the living God, and unhappy because you cannot find him to the delight of your heart? Have you lost the joy of religion, and is this your prayer, “Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation”? Are you conscious also that you are barren, like the dry ground; that you are not bringing forth the fruit unto God which He has a right to expect of you; that you are not so useful in the Church, or in the world, as your heart desires to be?
Then here is exactly the promise which you need, “I will pour water upon him that is thirsty.” You shall receive the grace you so much require, and you shall have it to the utmost reach of your needs.
Water refreshes the thirsty: you shall be refreshed; your desires shall be gratified. Water quickens sleeping vegetable life: your life shall be quickened by fresh grace. Water swells the buds and makes the fruits ripen; you shall have fructifying grace: you shall be made fruitful in the ways of God.
Whatever good quality there is in divine grace, you shall enjoy it to the full. All the riches of divine grace you shall receive in plenty; you shall be as it were drenched with it: and as sometimes the meadows become flooded by the bursting rivers, and the fields are turned into pools, so shall you be—the thirsty land shall be springs of water.
All These promises are what the Sovereign Lord is telling you and I this day that He will yet do for us even before the end of this month of grace is over and beyond. Beloved, you will be a wonder to behold in Jesus’s Name.
Another promise awaits you in the next message, please read and be bless:
“Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you.” Hebrews 9:20
There is a strange power about the very name of blood, and the sight of it is always affecting. A kind heart cannot bear to see a sparrow bleed, and unless familiarized by use, turns away with horror at the slaughter of a beast. As to the blood of men, it is a consecrated thing: it is murder to shed it in wrath, it is a dreadful crime to squander it in war.
Is this solemnity occasioned by the fact that the blood is the life, and the pouring of it forth the token of death? We think so. When we rise to contemplate the blood of the Son of God, our awe is yet more increased, and we shudder as we think of the guilt of sin, and the terrible penalty which the Sin-bearer endured.
Blood, always precious, is priceless when it streams from Immanuel’s side. The blood of Jesus seals the covenant of grace, and makes it for ever sure. Covenants of old were made by sacrifice, and the everlasting covenant was ratified in the same manner. Oh, the delight of being saved upon the sure foundation of divine engagements which cannot be dishonoured! Salvation by the works of the law is a frail and broken vessel whose shipwreck is sure; but the covenant vessel fears no storms, for the blood ensures the whole.
The blood of Jesus made His testament valid. Wills are of no power unless the testators die. In this light the soldier’s spear is a blessed aid to faith, since it proved our Lord to be really dead. Doubts upon that matter there can be none, and we may boldly appropriate the legacies which He has left for His people. Happy they who see their title to heavenly blessings assured to them by a dying Saviour.
But has this blood no voice to us? Does it not bid us sanctify ourselves unto Him by whom we have been redeemed? Does it not call us to newness of life, and incite us to entire consecration to the Lord? O that the power of the blood might be known, and felt in us this today!
Rejoice with us as we celebrate our 2nd anniversary today! Pray for us, that God in His infinite mercy will continue to help us and send more labourers to His vine yard. Amen! And all those God has been using to bless us to keep the ministry going we say “thank you”. May God’s blessing rest on you this day and for ever.

Have a wonderful weekend, see you in December, the month of our Lord Jesus.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
Sing along with me as we end this month gracefully:
Amazing grace! how sweet the sound—
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind but now I see.
‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!
The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.
Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.
Also sing along with me as we renew our pledge to our Lord Jesus Christ:
MY HOPE IS BUILT ON NOTHING LESS
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.
When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the vale.
His oath, His covenant, His blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in Him be found!
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne!
