I will exalt You Lord for Thou has lifted me above my enemies Your banner over me is love. I will exalt You Jesus, I will exalt You Father, for Thou has lifted me above my enemies, Your banner over me is love.// 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 holiness fearful in praises doing wonders alleluia.
My Father in heaven thank You, blessed be Thou Name, let Thy Kingdom come and Your will be done on earth. Thank You for another beautiful day in Your presence, glory be Your Name alone in Jesus Name. Faithful Father, we bow before You we give You Praise adoration and honour to Your Holy Name. Thank You for answers to prayers, if not for You Lord! Thank You for always being There for us.
Beloved, good morning, how are you doing? We are matching on and I pray that the grace of God will be sufficient for us in Jesus Name. today typical known as “Holy Thursday”, the Passover feast at hand and Jesus is to eat the Last Supper today with His disciple, washing of feet is usually observed today mostly by the orthodox churches and last one hour watch. It is an interesting time in the body of Christ.
These are observations and doctrines which are meant to play out what happened in those times back to our remembrance. However, we are not going only to call to our remembrance or observation but we are going to start emulating and living as Jesus did.
Another look at the passions of Jesus while He was on His way to the Cross – “His Countenance.” Or as others will put it “His Disposition,” While He was being taking from the Caiaphas to Pilate, from scourging, mocking, whipping, nakedness and bullying, He murmured not, neither did He opened His mouth but like a sheep going to be shear He kept mute. This got me thinking!
Let us observe another moment of silence while mediating on this act of Jesus. Remembered what He told Peter when he cut off of the ear of the servant of the high priest, He told to put back his sword in its sheath “Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? 54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?” Matthew 26:53-54 (KJV) .
Jesus, we know is God and has the power to do all things but at the hour what is written must be fulfilled so He submitted to the “Will” of His Father, Praise the Lord. beloved, how do we react in a situation describe above? Swearing and cursing? Rebuking and binding? Or what do we do?
We must learn from our Lord Jesus Christ to be mute in face of crisis and misunderstanding, disrespect and accusations. The grace to stand we ask from Him so that we will go all the way and carrying our Cross as He did. Praise the Lord!
Join me to discover more:
“In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit.” Luke 10:21
The Saviour was “a man of sorrows,” but every thoughtful mind has discovered the fact that down deep in His innermost soul He carried an inexhaustible treasury of refined and heavenly joy. Of all the human race, there was never a man who had a deeper, purer, or more abiding peace than our Lord Jesus Christ. “He was anointed with the oil of gladness above His fellows.”
His vast benevolence must, from the very nature of things, have afforded Him the deepest possible delight, for benevolence is joy. There were a few remarkable seasons when this joy manifested itself. “At that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth.” Christ had His songs, though it was night with Him; though His face was marred, and His countenance had lost the lustre of earthly happiness, yet sometimes it was lit up with a matchless splendour of unparalleled satisfaction, as He thought upon the recompense of the reward, and in the midst of the congregation sang His praise unto God.
In this, the Lord Jesus is a blessed picture of His church on earth. At this hour the church expects to walk in sympathy with her Lord along a thorny road; through much tribulation she is forcing her way to the crown. To bear the cross is her office, and to be scorned and counted an alien by her mother’s children is her lot; and yet the church has a deep well of joy, of which none can drink but her own children.
There are stores of wine, and oil, and corn, hidden in the midst of our Jerusalem, upon which the saints of God are evermore sustained and nurtured; and sometimes, as in our Saviour’s case, we have our seasons of intense delight, for “There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of our God.” Exiles though we be, we rejoice in our King; yea, in Him we exceedingly rejoice, while in His name we set up our banners.
Beloved, even in His sorrowful mood He never lose an hair. He was so calm and He revenge not rather He forgave them all before He breathe His last. Humanly speaking “impossible” but thanks be Jesus to Whom “all things are possible.”
O! God our Father, help us to be more like Jesus give us Your grace and glory in Jesus Name.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
