Great Redeemer, Unchangeable Changer, You are the Beginning and the End. There is no one like You Lord, there is no One to be compared with You. I have search all eternity Lord, You are just One. From the East to the West; from the North to South, no one but You Father.

How Wonderful Thou Are. You are so Glorious, Merciful and so Great. Praise be Thy Holy Name for-ever and ever more. Amen!

Beloved, we count ourselves honourable to be part of this great family of God. We take it with no levity at all to be among the privileged few, who have discovered the way to everlasting joy and happiness, an inroad to eternity. Praise The Name of the Lord! Alleluia. The Word of God said “broad is way that leads to destruction and many are trooping in daily but narrow is that way leads to life” (Matt 7:13-14).

Let us therefore enter through the narrow and straight way and return to our Maker, Who seeks to reconcile us daily through the death of His Son Jesus Christ on the cross.

Let us return to God this day, through the lifting up of our voices to the Most High God and interceding especially for one another for His Mercy and Grace upon us to live worthy each day.

We must return to Him, if we don’t want to live a despairing life. God forbid.

Return to him, for He promised to return to us:

“So tell the people: This is what the Lord of Hosts says: Return to Me”—[this is] the declaration of the Lord of Hosts—“and I will return to you, says the Lord of Hosts.”—Zechariah 1:3

God places much of the burden of what we will become on our response to Him. If we have drifted from God, His call is to return to Him. God promises that if we will return, He will immediately renew His relationship with us. James 4:8 promises that if we draw near to God, He will draw near to us. Matthew 7:7 guarantees that if we seek Christ, we will find Him. Much of the Christian life rests upon our response and our desire to experience God to the fullest.

Why is it that some Christians seem to go so much deeper in their walk with God than others? Why have some had such powerful intercessory prayer ministries that have changed the courses of nations? Why has God chosen to anoint the words of some so that, when they speak or pray or preach, it is obvious that their words are consecrated by God? It is because these individuals have committed themselves to pursue God until His presence is powerfully real in their lives. They have decided to settle for nothing less than a vibrant relationship with God, and He has honored their desire.

Have you become complacent with your relationship with God, or are you hungering for more? Don’t become satisfied with a relationship with God that is broken by sin and void of the power of the Holy Spirit. You have just as much of God’s powerful presence available to you as the greatest saint in Christian history! Return to God. There is so much more in store for you if you will return to Him. He awaits your response.

With His hands spread, He is waiting to welcome you back to the fold, will you heed His voice and come nearer to Him. Look up to Him as He look with pity on you. Don’t miss this opportunity in case you are yet to receive Him as your Lord and personal Saviour (click here now to do so). Congratulation!

Leanness is that soul that sought Him not. Ill favour is that man that is slothful in the place of prayer:

“The illfavoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven wellfavoured and fat kine.” Genesis 41:4

Pharaoh’s dream has too often been my waking experience. My days of sloth have ruinously destroyed all that I had achieved in times of zealous industry; my seasons of coldness have frozen all the genial glow of my periods of fervency and enthusiasm; and my fits of worldliness have thrown me back from my advances in the divine life.

I had need to beware of lean prayers, lean praises, lean duties, and lean experiences, for these will eat up the fat of my comfort and peace. If I neglect prayer for never so short a time, I lose all the spirituality to which I had attained; if I draw no fresh supplies from heaven, the old corn in my granary is soon consumed by the famine which rages in my soul.

When the caterpillars of indifference, the cankerworms of worldliness, and the palmerworms of self-indulgence, lay my heart completely desolate, and make my soul to languish, all my former fruitfulness and growth in grace avails me nothing whatever. How anxious should I be to have no lean-fleshed days, no ill-favoured hours!

If every day I journeyed towards the goal of my desires I should soon reach it, but backsliding leaves me still far off from the prize of my high calling, and robs me of the advances which I had so laboriously made. The only way in which all my days can be as the “fat kine,” is to feed them in the right meadow, to spend them with the Lord, in His service, in His company, in His fear, and in His way.

Why should not every year be richer than the past, in love, and usefulness, and joy?—I am nearer the celestial hills, I have had more experience of my Lord, and should be more like Him.

O Lord, keep far from me the curse of leanness of soul; let me not have to cry, “My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me!” but may I be well-fed and nourished in Thy house, that I may praise Thy name.

This is a warning that must be heed. Don’t treat this message as one of such. Save it up and refer to it. Send it to as many as a way of saving them from the broad way that leads to destruction.

May our prayer life be RICH and ROBUST in Jesus Name. Amen!

Remain blessed in the Lord.
