We are welcome to the last month of the year of the Lord 2012. Our month of “PLEASANT SURPRISES” (Isaiah 55:12-13) Are excited as I am? If you, make some noise unto the Lord! He is worthy of our Praise. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord (PS 150:6) incidentally it is the last verse in the book of Psalms.
Are you expectant? Remember without expectation you cannot receive from God. Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof (Ecc.7:8a). If there is anything that has eluded you, missed, lost from the beginning of the year that you strongly desire according to the will of God, He will deliver it to you before the end of the year. Your Tests is turning into Testimonies.
In the remaining days of the year, I will encourage you to seek God with all your heart (Jer. 29:13). Only genuine heart seekers find the Lord, head seekers do not find God. If God manifest in your head, it will blow up (you cannot reason God out). So engage your heart to seek God, not your head. (1 Sam.16:7) God is searching your heart to know the kind of encounter you will have with Him in the remaining days of this year.
To be a partaker of the above promise, make sure you deep yourself in the Word of God. Study the word,  memorize some scriptures and confess it concerning what you want from God. Even if the situation is not looking it, stay on the word. Remember He is faithful that promised.
Does the situation looks blank, no hope, no future, no dream, no vision, your set time is running out but note He is never late to any appointment, God will make something manifest in your life before the last tick of time in this year. May be you are asking “How will this be” (Luke 1:34). God knows how to bypass a system, person to give you the miracle even where the chosen vessel is delaying or unwilling. God’s miracles in your life by unexpected, unsolicited divine visitation will surly be but one underlining factor is that it must be desired through prayer, praise and studying the word of God.
Let’s consider the verse below:
O that men would praise the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men.” Psalm 107:8
If we complained less, and praised more, we should be happier, and God would be more glorified. Let us daily praise God for common mercies—common as we frequently call them, and yet so priceless, that when deprived of them we are ready to perish.
Let us bless God for the eyes with which we behold the sun, for the health and strength to walk abroad, for the bread we eat, for the raiment we wear. Let us praise Him that we are not cast out among the hopeless, or confined amongst the guilty; let us thank Him for liberty, for friends, for family associations and comforts; let us praise Him, in fact, for everything which we receive from His bounteous hand, for we deserve little, and yet are most plenteously endowed.
But, beloved, the sweetest and the loudest note in our songs of praise should be of redeeming love. God’s redeeming acts towards His chosen are forever the favourite themes of their praise. If we know what redemption means, let us not withhold our sonnets of thanksgiving. We have been redeemed from the power of our corruptions, uplifted from the depth of sin in which we were naturally plunged.
We have been led to the cross of Christ—our shackles of guilt have been broken off; we are no longer slaves, but children of the living God, and can antedate the period when we shall be presented before the throne without spot or wrinkle or any such thing (1 Pet.1:23). Even now by faith we wave the palm-branch and wrap ourselves about with the fair linen which is to be our everlasting array, and shall we not unceasingly give thanks to the Lord our Redeemer?
Child of God, canst thou be silent? Awake, awake, ye heritors of glory, and lead your captivity captive, as ye cry with David, “Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me bless His holy name.” (Ps 103:1) Let the new month begin with new songs.
