Good morning Jesus good morning Lord, I know You came from heaven above, the Holy Spirit is on the throne good morning Jesus, good morning Lord// Come and see the Lord goodness His mercies and compassion, I have seen the Lord goodness alleluia, praise the Lord!

Who is like unto Thee O! Lord! Father in heaven O! God! There is nothing to compared with Thee, You are the Mighty man in battle. Great are You Lord! You are greatly to be Praise Father You reign. Receive our thanks, adoration to Your Name O! Lord! Have Your way in our lives today, make Your will plain to us Father that we will not sin against Thee. Arise O Lord! and show us Your path of righteousness, that You Name will be glorify forever in Jesus Name.

Beloved, once again we welcome you to a new month, hope you are starred up in your Spirit to be committed to the service of the Kingdom as we progress through the year, our rewarder is coming and will not forget your labour of love. Don’t be tried rather with a cheerful heart let us always offer our service to God for He will never forget (2 Cor 9:6-15) Praise the Lord!

Beloved having receive of the Lord the theme of this month let therefore run as every runner run to win a prize at the end. The ninth month we were told stand for fertility in addition, we will also receive from the Lord as our month of lifting, which can also be said to be of increase, of expansion, of greatness. Praise the Lord.

However, is interesting to know that as much as this pronouncement has gone ahead of us by the grace of God it will perform that which it has send forth to do for the Word of God faileth not but we have a role to play in order to bring to past the Promise of God which was spoken concerning us.

We may need to visit a farmer for better understanding of the conditions necessary for a healthier and fertile land that will yield an award winning crops. In like manner we must take care of our physical bodies as we take care of the spiritual. The neglect of one will lead to some unpleasant nwes. Is either we suffer spiritual famine or physical exhaustion neither is good.

It has been noticed that some Christian take good care of the spiritual life while neglecting the physical body. Is important for us to note that whatever messages/vision we receive from the Lord, we delivery it using the physical body and that is why it is of essence that we take care of the physical bodies as much as we take of the spiritual bodies.

A farmer prepares and nourishes the soil before planting his crop. The word of God also instructed the children of Israel to leave their land fallow on the seventh year (Exo 23:11), though this is pertaining to law of rest. This is a pointer that if God will grant rest to land, how much more, we to take care of our bodies for effective fruitfulness and growth.

So from the throne of grace this month we will be looking at various things that will help us achieve the greater height or lifting as promised us by the Word of God in addition to the Word of God we receive daily. We must secure our physical bodies to be able to deliver the message we receive from the Lord. You need a good and well nourished body to take care of those children you brought to the world. You need a good physical body to go to missions and deliver God’s word to the His people, so get ready and be ready to comply else your dream and aspiration dies at conception. May God help us in Jesus Name!

Like a Fine-Tuned Violin                            

Don’t you know that the runners in a stadium all race, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way to win the prize.—1 Corinthians 9:24

What and how much we eat can greatly affect the way we feel. If the nerves are starved on account of a lack of vitamins, they will kick back in physical depression—exactly the same way that a starved soul or spirit will kick back in psychological depression. So discipline yourself to eat correctly and nutritionally.

Next, discipline yourself to take appropriate physical exercise. God designed our bodies for movement, and if they don’t move, they get sluggish. Then what happens? A sluggish body contributes to a sluggish spirit.

Time and time again, when counseling people who are suffering with depression, I have recommended (along with other suggestions) that they take up physical exercise. One should not, of course, embark upon vigorous exercise, like playing racqetball or jogging, without having a medical check-up. But I have been surprised at how even a short, brisk walk can do wonders for the soul.

I feel a word of caution may be needed here, because many people in our culture are fast becoming exercise “freaks.” It is possible to regulate the body too much! You should get enough exercise to remain fit, but also keep in mind that too much attention to exercise or sports may drain higher interests. Everything must be kept in balance: just enough food to keep you fit and not enough to make you fat; just enough sleep to keep you fresh and a little less than that which would make you lazy. We must keep our bodies like a fine-tuned violin, and then the music of God will come out from every fiber of our being.

Prayer

O God of my mind and my body, I come to You to have both of these brought under the control of Your redemption and Your guidance. May I pass on the health of my mind to my body and the health of my body to my mind. Amen.

1Kg 19:8; Php 3:1-16; Gl 2:2; Heb 12:1

What picture did Paul use in illustrating truth?

How much do you exercise?

Did you read what we have up there? There a lots of vitamins that runs the body and the lack of them will make a shipwreck of your vision to win souls to the kingdom of God and am very sure you are not ready to risk that. We are therefore enjoined by this message to take of our physical bodies in order to live a fulfilling life.

It is sad to say what some suppose ministers of God are doing with regards to these aspects. Some of them don’t advise their members to seek medical help if need be, they keep subjecting them to vigorous fasting and prayer sessions. If not that God is always merciful towards our ignorance such brethren loses their lives. Lack of some vital vitamins in the bodies behaves as if one is poisoned. Some of these ministers conjure so many names to lead their ignorant member astray.  May God help us in Jesus Name. How can a pregnant woman be taken only anointing oil? Is that the vital or routine drugs needed during pregnancy? Or a child with hole in the heart be given anointing oil? Is that the repair that is needed for the heart to function proper and live a healthy life?

You hear names like tortoise anointing sent by the evil ones. However incidents like this can occur when the body is deficient of calcium or magnesium. The bones are thinning out or are weak. Or you have cold or allergy to dust or cold environment because the immune system in the body is low and you will be hearing all manners of names being giving to such condition and those victims are still ask to fast.

Ministers stop profaning the Name of God, for every soul you took advantage of, God will judge you of, so be ware.

Beloved, everything happening to your body is not witchcraft or poison, it may interest you to know that some sicknesses in bodies occur as a result of lack of necessary vitamins and minerals that the body needs to run well. When the engine oil of a car/truck/ bus is not short from the ok level as directed by the manufacturer it will be grounded, same with our bodies. As much as take care of our spiritual life let us also devote time and resource to take care of our physical bodies. Let us endvour to eat balance diet and seek health advise when the need arise.

For a successful Divine Lifting we need a healthy body. Health is wealth is a proper saying and we must not neglect that if we want to life out our destinies as ordained by God.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
