He is worthy, He is worthy, He is worthy. Faithful is our God. Praise Him beloved, lift Him up, though your heart be down cast, at mention of His Name, let every weight be lifted. At the mention of His Name, let every burden drop in Jesus Name, At the mention of the Name of Jesus, let every knees bow in Jesus Name and every mouth confesses that Jesus is the Lord.
Beloved, repetition are used for emphasizes. The first part of our topic for today was meant to be on the first Wednesday of the month while the second part will have fallen in to the last Wednesday which is today. However, I had some challenges with the site and the laptop which in the mist of it I was unable to follow the order. However, while getting ready for the materials for today’s ministration, I ran into the same material which I would have used on the first Wednesday, incidentally both were saying the same thing. That actually cut my attention and I know when God is saying the same thing almost at the same time, it for us to obey.
Therefore, as God ordain nature, that after winter comes spring, likewise our soul is be awakening this day to seek the Lord. Peradventure, you have experiences the winter of prayerlessness and unfruitfulness, the Lord is calling on you today to seek after Him. Are depressed with the happenings around you, the Lord is telling you not give up but come to Him. Are you weary and heavily leaden, the Lord bids you come.
Never, give up, always look ahead, the future hold the best even if you cannot see it, even if it looks so bleak, do you ever give up, fight to continue going, it might be tough but I want to assure you that nothing good comes easy but with great travail a woman brings forth, likewise, press on even in your worship and before long you will see the star in you come alive again.
Hold on to God, your spring season is here, soon you will experience summer season again if you know how to maximize your spring season.
Come along as we make new discovers though the teaching of today with the Holy Spirit helping our understanding:
“It is time to seek the Lord.” Hosea 10:12
This month of April is said to derive its name from the Latin verb aperio, which signifies to open, because all the buds and blossoms are now opening, and we have arrived at the gates of the flowery year.
Reader, if you are yet unsaved, may your heart, in accord with the universal awakening of nature, be opened to receive the Lord. Every blossoming flower warns you that it is time to seek the Lord; be not out of tune with nature, but let your heart bud and bloom with holy desires. Do you tell me that the warm blood of youth leaps in your veins? then, I entreat you, give your vigour to the Lord.
It was my unspeakable happiness to be called in early youth, and I could fain praise the Lord every day for it. Salvation is priceless, let it come when it may, but oh! an early salvation has a double value in it. Young men and maidens, since you may perish ere you reach your prime, “It is time to seek the Lord.”
Ye who feel the first signs of decay, quicken your pace: that hollow cough, that hectic flush, are warnings which you must not trifle with; with you it is indeed time to seek the Lord. Did I observe a little grey mingled with your once luxurious tresses? Years are stealing on apace, and death is drawing nearer by hasty marches, let each return of spring arouse you to set your house in order.
Dear reader, if you are now advanced in life, let me entreat and implore you to delay no longer. There is a day of grace for you now—be thankful for that, but it is a limited season and grows shorter every time that clock ticks. Here in this silent chamber, on this first night of another month, I speak to you as best I can by paper and ink, and from my inmost soul, as God’s servant, I lay before you this warning, “It is time to seek the Lord.” Slight not that work, it may be your last call from destruction, the final syllable from the lip of grace.
Beloved, you will agree with me that this call cut across all ages. While some are fortunate to come to Lord at their youth some are yet to know Him even at their grey hair. Be of good cheers, consider it still a privilege given to you to seek the Lord, in each, God made it possible. Consider Peter and Timothy. In both cases, Jesus Name was glorified, none out do the other, they were all parts in building the body of Christ.
Let get going:
“The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.” Song 2:12
Sweet is the season of spring: the long and dreary winter helps us to appreciate its genial warmth, and its promise of summer enhances its present delights. After periods of depression of spirit, it is delightful to behold again the light of the Sun of Righteousness; then our slumbering graces rise from their lethargy, like the crocus and the daffodil from their beds of earth; then is our heart made merry with delicious notes of gratitude, far more melodious than the warbling of birds—and the comforting assurance of peace, infinitely more delightful than the turtle’s note, is heard within the soul.
Now is the time for the soul to seek communion with her Beloved; now must she rise from her native sordidness, and come away from her old associations. If we do not hoist the sail when the breeze is favourable, we shall be blameworthy: times of refreshing ought not to pass over us unimproved. When Jesus Himself visits us in tenderness, and entreats us to arise, can we be so base as to refuse His request?
He has Himself risen that He may draw us after Him: He now by His Holy Spirit has revived us, that we may, in newness of life, ascend into the heavenlies, and hold communion with Himself. Let our wintry state suffice us for coldness and indifference; when the Lord creates a spring within, let our sap flow with vigour, and our branch blossom with high resolve.
O Lord, if it be not spring time in my chilly heart, I pray Thee make it so, for I am heartily weary of living at a distance from Thee. Oh! the long and dreary winter, when wilt Thou bring it to an end?
Come, Holy Spirit, and renew my soul! quicken Thou me! restore me, and have mercy on me! This very day I would earnestly implore the Lord to take pity upon His servant, and send me a happy revival of spiritual life!
Are you ready to be part of this revival? Are you ready to let go every lethargy that holds you down before now and shine forth again? Are you ready to serve this God Who in everything is beautiful and bright. This is time; this is hour to let go the winter and smog that besieged your Spirit and come to the Living God, He will indeed make you smile again, your spring will blossom and your summer time come forth again in Jesus Name. Praise Lord.
My prayer for you that your Spirit man alive in again in Jesus Name. Be revive in the Name of Jesus. You that is on fire for Christ already, never let the fire go down in the Name of Jesus. Praise the Lord!!!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
