Everybody testify You are good, You are good Jehovah You are good, everybody testifies You are good, You are good Jehovah You are so.// Sweet Jesus, Sweet Jesus, how wonderful You are, You are Precious thank the morning star, You are Precious, more Precious than the lily that grow by the way, You are Precious, more Precious than gold.

Who is like unto Thee O Lord! Thank you for the gift of this week, it is a glorious one, thank You for Your Faithfulness. Great is Thy faithfulness, great is Thy faithfulness morning by morning new mercies I see, all that I needed Thou Hands has provided, great is Thy faithfulness Lord unto Thee.

Blessed be the Name of Jehovah Who reigneth over all the things He has made, receive our Praise Lord! receive all adoration in Jesus Name.

Beloved, it is a beautiful day, we ought to praise the Name of Jehovah for His goodness and His wonderful works, we may not have all that we desire at the moment but one thing I know is that God is working even in that situation to perfect it. Amen!

He is a Mighty God, we cannot fathom Who He is because we are too little to comprehend Him, our human mind/brain cannot work it out, is too big for our comprehension, join to the book of Psalms chapter 104. This is the God we are talking about.

A God Who layeth the beams of His chambers in the waters. He maketh the clouds His chariot: Who walketh upon the wings of the wind… He lay the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever…. Beloved that is the God we are talking about.

Concerning us, the Word has gone out of His mouth and shall not return back to Him void. Do not be afraid, but be strong in the Lord and in power of His might, it shall be well with them that fears the Lord. Praise the Lord.

Welcome to another PLC session, hope you have gained a lot from the teaching of this week? We saw the person of Jesus our Saviour Who has gone ahead of us to make every crooked path straight, He is interceding for us at the Right Hand of His Father, our Father so that when we are done here on earth, we will be with Him in glory. beloved, our prayer session was also a great time, a remainder for us to pray all the time as our arch enemy is battle ready against us the children of God, so we need not be off guide but be ever battle ready too so that we will not be overtaken when attacked.

Yesterday, was glorious because it engaged our heart and eyes to see the invisible even when nothing is happening in the present as we confess the victory that Jesus has won for us right from the foundation of the world. Beloved, we are up for attack for confessing Christ but we need not be afraid of what satan will do as “He that is in us is greater than he that is in the World.” Amen.

Today, we will know what it means to have extra practice. Are you ready to have your glory manifested? Then you must be ready to have this extra practice until you stand out from the world? Remember, nothing of impure nature will enter into the kingdom of God, therefore the Spirit of God will continual His work in us until we are what the Nature of God is –Holy.

Come along with us for more discoveries:

Ezekiel 18:1-19:14, Psalm 125:1-5, Proverbs 27:25-27, James 1:1-21

“Some Extra Practice”                     

Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials.—James 1:2

The Bible is replete with instances of God’s wisdom moving men and women through the most difficult times to the most wonderful ends. Take Abraham, for example. Although he is known in Scripture as the “the friend of God,” he was capable of some shabby behavior. On one occasion he actually compromised his wife’s chastity (Gn 12:10-20), and later, submitting to her pressure, fathered a child by Hagar, their maid (Gn 16:1-16). Then, seeking to avoid Sarah’s hysterical recriminations, he allowed her to drive Hagar away from their household (Gn 21:8-21). Clearly, Abraham was not a man of strong principle, and there were great flaws in his character. But God in wisdom dealt with this man and brought him through some great trials until he was changed from a man of the world to a true man of God.

The same wisdom that ordered the path Abraham trod orders our lives. We should never be taken aback when unexpected and upsetting things happen to us. We should recognize that no matter how hard the trial, God’s power will be there to get us through, and God’s wisdom will ensure that the trial will be worth more than it costs.

I like the way Jim Packer describes what may be God’s design when He permits us to go through trials: “Perhaps he means to strengthen us in patience, good humor, compassion, humility, or meekness by giving us some extra practice in exercising these graces under specially difficult situations.” “Some extra practice.” Some of us, myself included, sorely need it.

Prayer          

Father, help me grasp this truth once and for all, that Your wisdom ensures the trials I go through are worth far more than they cost. You are more committed to making me like Jesus than I am myself. It hurts sometimes, but deep down I am grateful.

Further Study

Isa 48:1-10; Ps 66:10; Mal 3:3; 1Pt 1:7

What process is God’s testing likened to?

What is the end result?

Did see that, even Abraham God’s friend did some extra practice, so be encourage in the Lord as He is training your hand to be strong and at this time making you an acceptable offering before Him.

Be joyful therefore as you pass through these trials that will make you stronger and better before your Maker in Jesus Name, at the end we will be more like Jesus. Praise the Lord!

“More of You Jesus, more of you Jesus, it is my desire to be more like You, Lord. More of You Jesus, more of you Jesus, it is my desire to be more like You Lord.”

This is a song and I hope you sang from your heart. Father help us as we make our way through this path of life help us to be more like You in Jesus Name.

Beloved, have a wonderful time all through this week learning how to be more like Jesus  and see you on Monday by the special grace of God.

 

Remain blessed in the Lord.
