I will exalt you Lord for thy have lifted me above my enemies the banner over me is love. I will lift up your Name 4x above every other Name. Wonderful, marvelous, are the works of my God, praise be Thy Name 2x.
Dear Father in heaven thank You for your Faithfulness in the life of Your children, You are great and worthy of our praise. You displays Your Majesty in all that You have created (Ps 68:19). Glorious God, hallow be Thy Name forever and ever.
Beloved, wow! The end of the week is here again, hope you enjoyed your week? Glory be to God in the highest. Join me to say “Faithful are You Lord; worthy to be praise. Father, You are great!” Beloved, hope we are imparting eternal values to you. May God give you perfect understanding as make out time to invest in things that are of eternal values, amen. (Watch out for this message soon). Praise God!
We are still on rescue mission as we have receive grace to live out His glory in our life, we are therefore to encourage others to be partakers of this great feast (Matt 24:13-14). My prayer for you this day, is that you will be willing to ‘go’ as the Lord invites you to join this army of His that will never break their rank.
Come let us read more how this perfect willingness is possible:
“Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power.” Ps. 110:3
Blessed be the God of grace that it is so! He has a people whom He has chosen from of old to be His peculiar portion. These by nature have wills as stubborn as the rest of the froward sons of Adam; but when the day of His power comes, and grace displays its omnipotence, they become willing to repent, and to believe in Jesus. None are saved unwillingly, but the will is made sweetly to yield itself. What a wondrous power is this, which never violates the will, and yet rules it! God does not break the lock, but He opens it by a master-key which He alone can handle.
Now are we willing to be, to do, or to suffer as the Lord wills. If at any time we grow rebellious He has but to come to us with power, and straightway we run in the way of His commands with all our hearts. May this be a day of power with me as to some noble effort for the glory of God and the good of my fellow-men! Lord, I am willing; may I not hope that this is a day of thy power?
I am wholly at thy disposal; willing, yea, eager, to be used of thee for thy holy purposes. O Lord, let me not have to cry, “To will is present with me, but how to perform that which I would, I find not”; but give me power as thou givest me will.
This is as important as life itself or what is life without Christ? Such life will be mark with crises and its spiritual decline is eminent. Beloved, this is a check list though, go through and see how healthy you are. Are still in army or have you hang your boots without knowing? Go through, let’s meet again to conclude:
Are there parallels between Israel’s spiritual decline and ours? She was:
Unappreciative — “Our fathers in Egypt did not understand Thy wonders; They did not remember Thine abundant kindnesses, but rebelled by the sea… ” (Psalm 105:7)
Independent — “They quickly forgot His works; they did not wait for His counsel… :” (Psalm 106:13)
Sensual — “[They] craved intensely in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.” (Psalm 106:14)
Secular — “They exchanged their glory for the image of an ox that eats grass… They mingled with the nations, and learned their practices… And served their idols, which became a snare to them.” (Psalm 106:20, 29, 35, 36)
Resistant to the Holy Spirit — “They were rebellious against His Spirit… ” (Psalm 106:33a)
Willing to sacrifice her children — “They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons, and shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan… ” (Psalm 106:37, 38a)
We identify with William Bennett’s comment, “We have a real problem in this country when it comes to values. We have become the kind of societies that civilized countries used to send missionaries to.“
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34)
When God rescues a nation, He always uses a man:
“I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found none.” (Ezekiel 22:30)
QUESTION: What do you think God would have you do on a personal level to make a difference in the Nation? Are you up to the challenge?
Beloved, are there any of this vices in your life? Work on it. Yesterday, we read it yesterday God uses men to fulfill his eternal purpose, you are reading it again today when God rescues a nation, He always uses a man. Are you available? What are doing at your like corner? You don’t need to leave your job except where is not glorifying God, make an impact in your environment and God will honour you (Matt 24:13).
Go fishing this week end. Stop over at a friend place, colleague house, family member, service man and share the Word them. As easy as that, isn’t it?
See you next week by His special grace! Shalom!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
