As the world change; my Lord will never change. He is same today, yesterday and forever. We bow before Your throne, All glory, all honour, adoration be unto Him. Holy Father, we worship Thee, accept our praise forever and ever. Amen.
Heavenly God, Your children are before Your presence to seek the mercy of Christ that endureth (Jude 21). Give Ear as we come to You and release your blessings upon us.
Each day, the Lord blesses my soul with His word through this devotional, what about you? Yesterday’s message was a great comfort to so many people who have been calling upon the Name of God from the beginning of this year even in some cases beyond. They are getting discourage at themselves as much as others are getting tired of the situations surrounding them.
Now, I know that sometimes these “delays” might be deliberate for the “Mega Miracles” God has proposed to do in our lives. It may also occur because He wants to display His Sovereignty over all that He has made. (Not forgetting that we are clay and He is the Potter). And can a clay say to the potter “no, I don’t want to be a pot, make me as a flower vase or a sauce”.
The potter alone knows what the market needs and so will mold the clay to match the demands and so it is with our God, the heavenly Potter.
Never the less, today we will be considering what is like to live a sin free life and the experiences that follows it. The second part will be telling us about God’s Faithfulness and Might when it comes to our needs. Nothing comes to Him as a surprise.
In summary, God is Able and ever ready, so delay with regards to answers to prayers as discussed yesterday is not out of lack or inadequate preparation but that His Name be glorified in all that He has made. Read through and be blessed:
“Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.” Revelation 3:4
We may understand this to refer to justification. “They shall walk in white”; that is, they shall enjoy a constant sense of their own justification by faith; they shall understand that the righteousness of Christ is imputed to them, that they have all been washed and made whiter than the newly-fallen snow.
Again, it refers to joy and gladness: for white robes were holiday dresses among the Jews. They who have not defiled their garments shall have their faces always bright; they shall understand what Solomon meant when he said “Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart. Let thy garments be always white, for God hath accepted thy works.”
He who is accepted of God shall wear white garments of joy and gladness, while he walks in sweet communion with the Lord Jesus. Whence so many doubts, so much misery, and mourning? It is because so many believers defile their garments with sin and error, and hence they lose the joy of their salvation, and the comfortable fellowship of the Lord Jesus, they do not here below walk in white.
The promise also refers to walking in white before the throne of God. Those who have not defiled their garments here shall most certainly walk in white up yonder, where the white-robed hosts sing perpetual hallelujahs to the Most High. They shall possess joys inconceivable, happiness beyond a dream, bliss which imagination knoweth not, blessedness which even the stretch of desire hath not reached.
The “undefiled in the way” shall have all this—not of merit, nor of works, but of grace. They shall walk with Christ in white, for He has made them “worthy.” In His sweet company they shall drink of the living fountains of waters. For nothing comes to Your Father as a surprise, for He predestinated it from the beginning so also is the provisions.
Beloved, is possible you are not seeing anything from the point where you are standing, that does not mean that nothing is there. So, let us thank Him ahead of the blessings you believed His has hand has wrought for you. Beloved, thank Him for the supplies and when it eventually drops on your hands, you will dance and rejoice with all that knows you and many will come to your light as we were told. Read on and blessed:
“Thou, O God, hast prepared of Thy goodness for the poor.” Psalm 68:10
All God’s gifts are prepared gifts laid up in store for wants foreseen. He anticipates our needs; and out of the fulness which He has treasured up in Christ Jesus, He provides of His goodness for the poor. You may trust Him for all the necessities that can occur, for He has infallibly foreknown every one of them. He can say of us in all conditions, “I knew that thou wouldst be this and that.”
A man goes a journey across the desert, and when he has made a day’s advance, and pitched his tent, he discovers that he wants many comforts and necessaries which he has not brought in his baggage. “Ah!” says he, “I did not foresee this: if I had this journey to go again, I should bring these things with me, so necessary to my comfort.” But God has marked with prescient eye all the requirements of His poor wandering children, and when those needs occur, supplies are ready. It is goodness which He has prepared for the poor in heart, goodness and goodness only. “My grace is sufficient for thee.” “As thy days, so shall thy strength be.”
Reader, is your heart heavy this day? God knew it would be; the comfort which your heart wants is treasured in the sweet assurance of the text. You are poor and needy, but He has thought upon you, and has the exact blessing which you require in store for you. Plead the promise, believe it and obtain its fulfillment.
Do you feel that you never were so consciously vile as you are now? Behold, the crimson fountain is open still, with all its former efficacy, to wash your sin away. Never shall you come into such a position that Christ cannot aid you. No pinch shall ever arrive in your spiritual affairs in which Jesus Christ shall not be equal to the emergency, for your history has all been foreknown and provided for in Jesus.
Finally, brethren, there is no emergence in Christ but abundance in Him, don’t forget “New Birth in Him” guarantee’s all your supplies, and if you are yet to belong to that family, please click here to accept Jesus now.
You can still reconnect yourself back to Him in case you have backslide or peradventure, you are still hot for Jesus, please keep it up, remember there is no assumption in being “born- again”. It is something you know, because there is a “witness” in life, testifying about it.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
