The bill for clean health who can pay? Just put a call to a family doctor what it will cause to place someone on oxygen for 365 days, the answer might be shocking to you. But not worry because Jesus had already pay that bill and yours is to breathe in and out and be merry.

On protection, pick up a phone and find out from a reputable security agent to know what it will cost to hire their service for 24 hours for 365 days round the clock, am sure you will scream as you see or hear the figures. But to God be the glory, you enjoyed all these free because the Lord watched over you. Praise God.

Do I continue to list one after the other why you should jump on feet and start praising God for all those trips You took and return to base safety.  All those escape from robberies and dangerous situation. You took ill and you were healed, there are too many to mention. The new births, new marriages, admission to institution, employment and career breakthroughs.

Wow! Who can recount all what the Lord has done for us. What about national and environmental peace. The Lord upheld our homes and love ones, our ministries and career. My list is becoming too long and also endless. Glory be to You Lord for all You have done, will yet do before this blessed year round off. More births and marriages will still be announce before the end of tomorrow.

Beloved, why won’t you shout a big alleluia to our great God.

Let us lift our voice and read out loud Ps 66 to the glory and honour of this Great and Mighty God.

Beloved, your fruiting comes from Jesus, Who had painstaking took us through the year on how to regain our dominion power stolen by trick by the devil. Having taught us to imbibe the fruit of the Spirit which is to place us in dominion over the wilderness of our life (Isa 32:14-18- our theme text for the year).

It was battle all through the year, am sure you have same testimony. Beloved, for you to rescue or be rescued you need a higher power and higher authority to overcome. Jesus is our Master, Savior, Friend, He is our all in all and that was exactly what He did for us this month. Don’t keep yourself bond ever again.

Beloved, do you know that Jesus died that we may live. He went down to hell and took the key of death and hell (Rev1:18). He defected Satan and made a public show of him. That victory has been handed over to you, don’t lose it again through careless living or sinful habit.

Who can condemn one who God has delivered, who can ever be against you if God is with you. He love you with an everlasting love,

May the fruit of the Spirit you have imbibe help you to be enthrone in Jesus Name. However, if you have not given your life to Jesus, another opportunity is here for you to do so lest you miss all the benefit of the birth and death of Jesus bought for you, am sure you will want to do that so click here to give your life to Jesus.

 

 

And Mary said:

“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,

and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. . . ”—Luke 1:46–47

 

Praise is the spontaneous response of a grateful child of God in His presence. The person who knows God and experiences Him intimately sings to the Lord with deepest praise! Mary was overwhelmed by the Lord’s goodness to her. In response she sang one of the most beautiful and profound songs of praise found in Scripture.

Trying to stop the praise of a thankful heart would be like trying to arrest the flow of a mighty waterfall! God created us to praise Him; praise will be our activity when we are gathered around His throne in heaven.

You should never have difficulty thinking of reasons why God deserves your praise. You should enjoy the times you have to praise your Lord, both privately and publicly in worship. If your life is not filled with praise, it may be that you have lost your appreciation for God’s merciful activity in your life. Never forget what God has saved you from.

Never take for granted what it means to have the assurance of eternity with God. Do not disregard the spiritual kinship you enjoy with other believers. Take time often to recount the blessings He has poured out upon you and your family. As you contemplate the boundless love and mercy God has shown you, you will want to sing His praises as Mary did.

Spontaneous praise is authentic praise. It does not have to be manipulated or orchestrated. It is a real and personal expression of a grateful heart and wonder-filled life that has encountered holy God!

Beloved, this is what your continually abiding in Jesus will accomplish in your life. So keep abiding. No broken relationship so that you keep the Satan out of your life and destiny forever and be in dominion instead for ever. Let’s keep reading:

 

“From Me is thy fruit found.” Hosea 14:8

 

Our fruit is found from our God as to union. The fruit of the branch is directly traceable to the root. Sever the connection, the branch dies, and no fruit is produced. By virtue of our union with Christ we bring forth fruit. Every bunch of grapes have been first in the root, it has passed through the stem, and flowed through the sap vessels, and fashioned itself externally into fruit, but it was first in the stem; so also every good work was first in Christ, and then is brought forth in us. O Christian, prize this precious union to Christ; for it must be the source of all the fruitfulness which thou canst hope to know. If thou wert not joined to Jesus Christ, thou wouldst be a barren bough indeed.

Our fruit comes from God as to spiritual providence. When the dew-drops fall from heaven, when the cloud looks down from on high, and is about to distil its liquid treasure, when the bright sun swells the berries of the cluster, each heavenly boon may whisper to the tree and say, “From me is thy fruit found.” The fruit owes much to the root—that is essential to fruitfulness—but it owes very much also to external influences. How much we owe to God’s grace-providence! in which He provides us constantly with quickening, teaching, consolation, strength, or whatever else we want. To this we owe our all of usefulness or virtue.

Our fruit comes from God as to wise husbandry. The gardener’s sharp-edged knife promotes the fruitfulness of the tree, by thinning the clusters, and by cutting off superfluous shoots. So is it, Christian, with that pruning which the Lord gives to thee. “My Father is the husbandman. Every branch in Me that beareth not fruit He taketh away; and every branch that beareth fruit He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.” Since our God is the author of our spiritual graces, let us give to Him all the glory of our salvation.

Beloved, we are nothing outside Christ, so keep abiding; to keep bearing fruit. Keep the fruit by the help of the Holy Spirit, and that will keep you dominion forever.

Beloved, here I pen down for year 2016. It has been a wonderful year all the way. I enjoyed your comments, contributions and suggestions that we received. Next year will be great by the special grace of God with the help of the Holy Spirit. Make sure you keep on with God and your life will be more beautiful.

Finally, dear beloved I leave with these Word- Put on therefore, as the elect of God,  holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;, forbearing one another and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. 14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Col 3:13-17 (KJV)

Finally dear beloved, have a wonderful crossover night and see you again on the second day of the coming year.

From allofus @ Overcomers-faith we say a Happy New Year and a prosperous 2017 ahead. Sing a new song like Mary did unto the Lord and see Him making all the crooked path straight before you step into the New Year.

 

Remain ever blessed in the Lord.
