I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me. O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning Ps 30:1-5 (KJV)
We are glad to welcome you to the month September 2013, by the grace of God; it promises to be great in the presence of God. He will bring to past all our long desires in Him. This month will live forever in your memory through the wonderful things the Lord is set to surprise you with.
Beloved, you are welcome to your month of “REMEBRANCE” Ex 3:7-8; Rev 3:11. For He has seen your afflictions, pains, sorrows, doubt, unbelief, struggles and He is coming to rescue you in that situation and He comes quickly.
My prayer for you is that hold on to what is good and abhor sin to qualify for this great move of God in amidst. Another qualification for the promise of the month is faith and believes Heb 6:11-12; 11:6, knowing that He is able to do it all. Our God is an inexhaustible God, He is too Might for your comprehension only “Trust and Obey”.
“Trust in Him at all times.” Psalm 62:8
Faith is as much the rule of temporal as of spiritual life; we ought to have faith in God for our earthly affairs as well as for our heavenly business. It is only as we learn to trust in God for the supply of all our daily need that we shall live above the world.
We are not to be idle, that would show we did not trust in God, who worketh hitherto, but in the devil, who is the father of idleness. We are not to be imprudent or rash; that were to trust chance, and not the living God, who is a God of economy and order. Acting in all prudence and uprightness, we are to rely simply and entirely upon the Lord at all times.
Let me commend to you a life of trust in God in temporal things. Trusting in God, you will not be compelled to mourn because you have used sinful means to grow rich. Serve God with integrity, and if you achieve no success, at least no sin will lie upon your conscience.
Trusting God, you will not be guilty of self-contradiction. He who trusts in craft, sails this way today, and that way the next, like a vessel tossed about by the fickle wind; but he that trusteth in the Lord is like a vessel propelled by steam, she cuts through the waves, defies the wind, and makes one bright silvery straightforward track to her destined haven.
Be you a man with living principles within; never bow to the varying customs of worldly wisdom. Walk in your path of integrity with steadfast steps, and show that you are invincibly strong in the strength which confidence in God alone can confer. Thus you will be delivered from carking care, you will not be troubled with evil tidings, your heart will be fixed, trusting in the Lord.
How pleasant to float along the stream of providence! There is no more blessed way of living than a life of dependence upon a covenant-keeping God. We have no care, for He careth for us; we have no troubles, because we cast our burdens upon the Lord.
Like I said earlier, this will only be possible when no guilt is found in you and no blood stain in your hands, then you will inherit the promises of your father through abiding in obedience and in love.
“If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love.” John 15:10
These things cannot be parted — abiding in obedience, and abiding in the love of Jesus. A life under the rule of Christ can alone prove that we are the objects of our Lord’s delight. We must keep our Lord’s command if we would bask in His love. If we live in sin we cannot live in the love of Christ. Without the holiness which pleases God, we cannot please Jesus. He who cares nothing for holiness knows nothing of the love of Jesus.
Conscious enjoyment of our Lord’s love is a delicate thing. It is far more sensitive to sin and holiness than mercury is to cold and heat. When we are tender of heart, and careful in thought, lip, and life to honor our Lord Jesus, then we receive tokens of His love without number. If we desire to perpetuate such bliss we must perpetuate holiness.
The Lord Jesus will not hide His face from us unless we hide our face from Him. Sin makes the cloud which darkens our Sun: if we will be watchfully obedient and completely consecrated, we may walk in the light, as God is in the light, and have as sure an abiding in the love of Jesus as Jesus has in the love of the Father.
Here is a sweet promise with a solemn “if.” Lord, let me have this “if” in my hand; for as a key it opens this casket.
Peradventure you are still living in sin, will like the prodigal arise and go to your father, He is waiting to welcome you home. Do you also know that He has prepared a banquet for you? Go Home now! Click here if you want to meet with Jesus today.
Beloved, I prophesy into your life and situation, that you will be remembered by the Lord this month, that which you are trusting God for must surely be and you will rejoice and bless the name of the Lord with “THANKSGIVING”.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
