Great is Thy faithfulness, Great is thy faithfulness, morning by morning new mercies I see. All that is needed Thy Hand has provided, Great is Thy faithfulness Lord unto thee.// Lord You are so good, be Thou exalted Lord above the earth. Lord you are so good, be thou exalted Lord above the earth.
Forever You will be Thou Lamb of Calvary, I gladly bow my knees to worship you dear Lord. How excellent, how excellent is Thy lovingkindness, is Thy lovingkindness O! Lord. Yes! Father how excellent is Your loving kindness up all Your children. Thank You for not denying Yourself. We bow before Your throne be Thou glorified. Wonderful God we worship You thank You for being us to the first worship day in this glorious month. Glory be to Your Name on high.
Beloved, it is our first prayer time in the second quarter of the year. If you are excited, Praise the Lord! Alleluia. For He is good and His Mercies enduerth forever; He is worthy of our Praise. Beloved, we will pray and the Lord will hearken in Jesus Name. He will glorify Himself in our midst again in Jesus Name.
Let us endeavour to commit every second, minute, hour, day and week in this month in the Hand of the Most High God. He will prove Himself Mighty on our behalf in Jesus Name.
Like every other month the mouth of God have spoken, ours is to run with the Spoken Word of God. I was blessed last month and I know that am in for another miracles season. The Lord have started with me already and I know more are yet to come in the Name of Jesus.
If God says and I believe it that settles it. But if God speaks and you are asking for proof then you are not ready yet. Mary did not wait for proof when the angel told her that she is going to conceive and bear a son, rather she accepted and told the angel “ behold the handmaid of the Lord be it unto me according to thy word” Lk 1: 38. Hannah believe what the High priest prayed and truly God grant her heart desire and sang a new song unto the Lord. 1 Sam 2:1-10, same with the children of Israelite. Zacharias also sang unto the Lord of His goodness- Lk 1:68-79. What about Deborah amd Barak in chapter 5 of Judges.
Beloved, David sang unto the God daily. That is the book of Psalms many are reciting this day as prayers. The redeemed of the Lord were not left out. They sang when Jesus agreed to take the scroll and open the book.
Beloved, so it is your turn to a sing a song. You cannot live a victorious life without singing a song of Praise daily. Yes! You must sing unto the Lord who can do all things. To Him alone be all the Glory on high.
Therefore you must pray and not be tried. In addition, you must be sensitive to warnings. Before the problem I encountered with my laptop, it was shown to in a dream. I sam it slip to fall but I cut it.
Hey that put me on guide. I became more careful and more sensitive so when I was unable to post for three days for I was attributing it to network issue. Then I decide to seek the pinion of those that are knowledgeable on Information tech. In the process a fatal damage was avoided. All my works of over five years would have disappear because it might be re-coverable.
Now the Holy Spirit help me and the clashing of my system was avoided and that was the saving “grace”. O! I remember adding grace and mercy in last month theme, beloved God said it and He did it. I was wondering the grace that was in the theme but who am I to question the Holy Spirit. So I said as I was told. And behold and lo, it was indeed His grace that the worst did not happen.
Beloved, God is not a talkative, so when speaks is because He want to bless you. Therefore you have to position yourself to receive what He has spoken concerning you and heed to revelation and instruction too. You cannot afford to live carelessly in the time and season we are in. Satan rejoiced that the worst has happened but Jesus overcome. I will build my church and the gate of hell shall not prevail against it. Please shout alleluia!
Beloved, the last ministration of last month warned us about the Amalekites and left us with an instruction to be Spiritual Persistence. This truly encouraged me why I was going through those challenging time. We do not minister but are to live by what God is telling us.
The Holy Spirit helped me and I keep telling myself “I will come out better,” and I did. God helped me. Beloved, Satan taunt but God Word are specific and instructive. He said “I did not call you unto wrath” Praise the Name of the Lord. He indeed made Name for Himself in that situation.
Beloved, you must be sensitive and do not give room to doubt and helplessness. Humble thyself before God and you will see the goodness of God in the land of the living. The teaching of the day has an example of a man who did humble Himself and God showed him mercy.
Another important warning is in the second part of the massage, I want you to discover it. Let’s go on:
“Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before the Lord, when thou heardest what I spake against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and hast rent thy clothes, and wept before me; I also have heard thee, saith the Lord.” 2Kings 22:19
Many despise warning, and perish. Happy is he who trembles at the word of the Lord. Josiah did so, and he was spared the sight of the evil which the Lord determined to send upon Judah because of her great sins. Have you this tenderness? Do you practice this self-humiliation? Then you also shall be spared in the evil day.
God sets a mark upon the men that sigh and cry because of the sin of the times. The destroying angel is commanded to keep his sword in its sheath till the elect of God are sheltered: these are best known by their godly fear, and their trembling at the Word of the Lord. Are the times threatening?
Do Popery and Infidelity advance with great strides, and do you dread national chastisement upon this polluted nation? Well you may. Yet rest in this promise, “Thou shalt be gathered into thy grave in peace: and thine eyes shall not see all the evil which I will bring upon this place.”
Better still, the Lord Himself may come, and then the days of our mourning shall be ended.
Yes! The day of our mourning is over and the Lord has put victory songs in our mouth, Praise the Lord. Let us continue:
“I know how to abound.” Philippians 4:12
There are many who know “how to be abased” who have not learned “how to abound.” When they are set upon the top of a pinnacle their heads grow dizzy, and they are ready to fall. The Christian far oftener disgraces his profession in prosperity than in adversity. It is a dangerous thing to be prosperous. The crucible of adversity is a less severe trial to the Christian than the fining-pot of prosperity.
Oh, what leanness of soul and neglect of spiritual things have been brought on through the very mercies and bounties of God! Yet this is not a matter of necessity, for the apostle tells us that he knew how to abound. When he had much he knew how to use it. Abundant grace enabled him to bear abundant prosperity. When he had a full sail he was loaded with much ballast, and so floated safely.
It needs more than human skill to carry the brimming cup of mortal joy with a steady hand, yet Paul had learned that skill, for he declares, “In all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry.” It is a divine lesson to know how to be full, for the Israelites were full once, but while the flesh was yet in their mouth, the wrath of God came upon them. Many have asked for mercies that they might satisfy their own hearts’ lust. Fulness of bread has often made fulness of blood, and that has brought on wantonness of spirit.
When we have much of God’s providential mercies, it often happens that we have but little of God’s grace, and little gratitude for the bounties we have received. We are full and we forget God: satisfied with earth, we are content to do without heaven. Rest assured it is harder to know how to be full than it is to know how to be hungry—so desperate is the tendency of human nature to pride and forgetfulness of God. Take care that you ask in your prayers that God would teach you “how to be full.”
“Let not the gifts Thy love bestows
Estrange our hearts from Thee.”
Did read that? Tell the Lord to teach yu how to abound so that you will not grieve the Spirit of God. You are up from the grave; don’t forget the Lord who did it. Be more in evangelism, be more in good works, be more in the presence of God. Keep the coal burning do not let laziness or business quench the fire. Keep it glowing and the Lord will bless you.
Let your prayer reach heaven at this first day and let it draw down the rain which will yield the harvest at the set time. Go rejoicing before the Lord because you are in for songs of Praise. May the Lord hear you as you cry unto him this day in Jesus Name.
Father, I thank you because we will come into Your presence and will not go the same way we came. Let your Name alone be Praise in Jesus Name.
Pray and posses the month.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
