What shall I render, what shall I render, what shall I render to You O! Lord, I will exalt Your Name and shout alleluia what shall I render to You O! Lord.// We are singing unto the Lord; singing alleluia. We are shouting unto the Lord; shouting alleluia. We are clapping unto the Lord; clapping alleluia.

Father, we thank You, we bless You, we honour for Who is like unto Thee. Thank You for making it possible for us to be among the living. Great are You Lord; greatly to be praise. We are here again to worship You; to adore You for You are great. Let Your Name be praise forever.

Arise O! God and be God indeed unto us. Send Your power and Your mighty and deliver us from all evil. Stop the evil in the land Lord! Show forth Your power and rescue Your children from blood sucking demons. You are God!

Beloved, what shall you render to God as a sacrifice? God is good at all times. He is above all. He created us for His glory. He made us to fulfill destiny. He is ever precious and kind towards all He has made. Glory be to Him in the Highest.

Have you taken time out recently to ask why did God create you? Why am I opportune be where I am? Why did He place me here even when I am less qualified? Oftentimes, people miss the reason why it was this way and not the other way round. They forget that if it took God to place and preserve them in their places of work. God must have a plan for it.

God sent Joseph ahead to preserve Israel and his children from extinction. Likewise God used David to deliver the Israelite from the torment of Goliath. Esther was not left out of the survival of the Jews then in exile. When Haman came with his evil plot to eliminate all the Jews.

At a point Esther nearly miss the reason for her election into the Palace when she heard that his uncle Mordecai was going about in sack cloth. She forgot what sack cloth represents to the Jews rather she sent some cloths to him. But her uncle reminder her that if she is not prompt in her action to see the king and stop the signing of the bill into law that she is not exempted because she was also a Jew and that will not remain covered forever.

She acted fast by praying down God’s intervention and entire Jews nation were saved.

Beloved, what are you up to? What are doing with the opportunity you are given? What are doing where you are placed? Are you keeping quite because you are not affected by what is happening now even when you can do something? What are doing to stop evil around you? How are responding to situation that you can help?

Beloved, the Lord is asking you again what difference are you making with the opportunity He gave to you? The truth you must know is that He gave you that opportunity; He can also take it away. Use your gift well or it will be recall back to bless another who can stand in for the Lord. (Isa 1:17).

Be determine to make a difference, Daniel did, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego  made a difference in the kingdom, will you decide today to also make a difference? Are you reading the times were in?

Join me to discover more from the message below:

 

 

Daniel determined that he would not defile himself with the king’s food or with the wine he drank. So he asked permission from the chief official not to defile himself.—Daniel 1:8

 

Would you dare to believe that God, who called you to Himself and equipped you with His Spirit, could work mightily through you? Have you made the connection between the time and place in which you live and God’s call upon you? World events never catch God by surprise. He placed you precisely where you are for a purpose.

Daniel did not let the temptations of his day interfere with his relationship to the Lord. He knew that to make his life useful to God he must be obedient in all things. Regardless of what the most powerful king in the world commanded, Daniel refused to compromise what he knew God required of him.

History is replete with examples of Christian men and women who believed that God would work through them to make a significant difference for His kingdom. God placed Esther strategically in the king’s court at a crucial time when she could save the lives of God’s people (Esther 4:14). God placed Joseph strategically to become the most powerful adviser to the pharaoh in Egypt and to save Jacob and his family from a devastating drought (Gen. 41:39–40).

Are you allowing your surroundings to determine how you invest your life? Or are you letting God use you to make a difference in your generation? Ask God to reveal His purposes for you and His will for your life today.

If you thinking strategically how you will make a difference still come along with me for more insight:

 

“I have yet to speak on God’s behalf.” Job 36:2

 

We ought not to court publicity for our virtue, or notoriety for our zeal; but, at the same time, it is a sin to be always seeking to hide that which God has bestowed upon us for the good of others. A Christian is not to be a village in a valley, but “a city set upon a hill;” he is not to be a candle under a bushel, but a candle in a candlestick, giving light to all.

Retirement may be lovely in its season, and to hide one’s self is doubtless modest, but the hiding of Christ in us can never be justified, and the keeping back of truth which is precious to ourselves is a sin against others and an offence against God. If you are of a nervous temperament and of retiring disposition, take care that you do not too much indulge this trembling propensity, lest you should be useless to the church.

Seek in the name of Him who was not ashamed of you to do some little violence to your feelings, and tell to others what Christ has told to you. If thou canst not speak with trumpet tongue, use the still small voice. If the pulpit must not be thy tribune, if the press may not carry on its wings thy words, yet say with Peter and John, “Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee.”

By Sychar’s well talk to the Samaritan woman, if thou canst not on the mountain preach a sermon; utter the praises of Jesus in the house, if not in the temple; in the field, if not upon the exchange; in the midst of thine own household, if thou canst not in the midst of the great family of man.

From the hidden springs within let sweetly flowing rivulets of testimony flow forth, giving drink to every passer-by. Hide not thy talent; trade with it; and thou shalt bring in good interest to thy Lord and Master. To speak for God will be refreshing to ourselves, cheering to saints, useful to sinners, and honouring to the Saviour.

Dumb children are an affliction to their parents. Lord, unloose all Thy children’s tongue.

Beloved, as the Lord lose your tongue (grant you supplies) don’t keep quite. He will ask each of us what we did with our talent don’t forget that. If others are slow to take action, take yours promptly because delayed obedience may count against you as disobedience or what is the use drug to the dead.

May God grant us wisdom to be ‘Difference Makers’ in Jesus Name!

 

Remain blessed in the Lord!
