Glory be to God in the highest Amen! 2x for His mercies endureth forever amen 2x.// Take glory Father, take glory Son, take glory Holy Spirit now forever more.
Our Father, receive all our glory, all honour, all adoration as we come to worship You today. Bless the Lord O my soul. O Lord my God, Thou are very Great; Thou art clothed with honour and majesty. Who coverest Thyself with light as with a garment; Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, Father, we worship You. You layeth the beams of his chambers in the water: Who make the clouds His chariot: Who walketh upon the wings of the wind, we bow before the Throne. Be thou be exalted forever and ever in Jesus Name.
Beloveth, hope you are ready for the last Wednesday blessings in this glorious month as we pray? Praise God. The Holy Spirit is here to help us again today to pray and be heard. Praise the Lord.
We have so many things around us distracting us from real worship. The world and its environs are full of distractions but it takes a dedicated heart and discipline to serve the Lord. The entertainment industries are not resting on their oars in taking the center stage daily thereby eating dip in the spare time of an average individual both young and old. The updated version of our technology devices to say the least are not left out either.
But I have a goodnews for you, Apostle Paul urge us in the book of Ephesians 6:18 “praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for the saints.”
Are you ready to pray for yourself and stay in the gap for others? Pray at all times and on every occasion does not mean that all You do is pray, but you need to have an attitude of prayer at all times
It also urged us to pray in the power of the Holy Spirit- which means that our “unceasing” prayer must be empowered by the Holy Spirit of God.
We are to pray persistently- This implies that we should not get weary praying and keeping at it. Beloved, all these takes time and patient to achieve. If you have fellow us throughout the month, I believe that you will not miss out again due to impatient or too much in a hurry.
Why must we persevere in our place of prayer, the first message of today has an answer to it. So join me as we discover why and more:
“Only ye shall not go very far away.” Exodus 8:28
This is a crafty word from the lip of the arch-tyrant Pharaoh. If the poor bondaged Israelites must needs go out of Egypt, then he bargains with them that it shall not be very far away; not too far for them to escape the terror of his arms, and the observation of his spies.
After the same fashion, the world loves not the non-conformity of nonconformity, or the dissidence of dissent, it would have us be more charitable and not carry matters with too severe a hand.
Death to the world, and burial with Christ, are experiences which carnal minds treat with ridicule, and hence the ordinance which sets them forth is almost universally neglected, and even contemned.
Worldly wisdom recommends the path of compromise, and talks of “moderation.” According to this carnal policy, purity is admitted to be very desirable, but we are warned against being too precise; truth is of course to be followed, but error is not to be severely denounced. “Yes,” says the world, “be spiritually minded by all means, but do not deny yourself a little gay society, an occasional ball, and a Christmas visit to a theatre.
What’s the good of crying down a thing when it is so fashionable, and everybody does it?” Multitudes of professors yield to this cunning advice, to their own eternal ruin. If we would follow the Lord wholly, we must go right away into the wilderness of separation, and leave the Egypt of the carnal world behind us.
We must leave its maxims, its pleasures, and its religion too, and go far away to the place where the Lord calls His sanctified ones. When the town is on fire, our house cannot be too far from the flames. When the plague is abroad, a man cannot be too far from its haunts.
The further from a viper the better, and the further from worldly conformity the better. To all true believers let the trumpet-call be sounded, “Come ye out from among them, be ye separate.”
As we persevere in the place of prayer, it will be very easy for us to adhere to the next instruction “come ye out from among them, be ye separate, saith the Lord…”
I believe the next message will further help your understanding:
“And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost.” Acts 2:4
Rich were the blessings of this day if all of us were filled with the Holy Ghost. The consequences of this sacred filling of the soul it would be impossible to overestimate. Life, comfort, light, purity, power, peace; and many other precious blessings are inseparable from the Spirit’s benign presence.
As sacred oil, He anoints the head of the believer, sets him apart to the priesthood of saints, and gives him grace to execute his office aright. As the only truly purifying water He cleanses us from the power of sin and sanctifies us unto holiness, working in us to will and to do of the Lord’s good pleasure.
As the light, He manifested to us at first our lost estate, and now He reveals the Lord Jesus to us and in us, and guides us in the way of righteousness. Enlightened by His pure celestial ray, we are no more darkness but light in the Lord.
As fire, He both purges us from dross, and sets our consecrated nature on a blaze. He is the sacrificial flame by which we are enabled to offer our whole souls as a living sacrifice unto God. As heavenly dew, He removes our barrenness and fertilizes our lives. O that He would drop from above upon us at this early hour! Such morning dew would be a sweet commencement for the day.
As the dove, with wings of peaceful love He broods over His Church and over the souls of believers, and as a Comforter He dispels the cares and doubts which mar the peace of His beloved. He descends upon the chosen as upon the Lord in Jordan, and bears witness to their sonship by working in them a filial spirit by which they cry Abba, Father.
As the wind, He brings the breath of life to men; blowing where He listeth He performs the quickening operations by which the spiritual creation is animated and sustained. Would to God, that we might feel His presence this day and every day.
Beloved, I beg you to covet all that the Holy Spirit can ever give especially as listed above as you pray today. When you come to this realm I tell you, you are not surprise at the activities of the darkness and it agents. You are better informed as your future and destiny unfolds. Understanding the will and mind of God will be very easy. What you fail to achieve will not weigh you down rather you will seek the help of the Holy Spirit to go again and again until you see a little cloud out of the sea, like a man’s hand.
And that will be your portion today as we pray. Therefore pray to be separated from all the devices of the enemy, the devil. Go very far away from all those sin that easily beset Thee, ask the Holy Spirit to help you in every situation and circumstances. Praise the Name of the Lord!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
