Good morning Jesus, good morning Lord, I know you come from heaven above, the Holy Spirit is on the Throne, good morning Jesus, good morning Lord.// come and the Lord is good, come and see the Lord is good, there is nothing He cannot do, come and see the Lord is good.

Beloved, yes. The Lord is good all the time. His mercies endureth forever. Great are His works. He is greatly to be Praise, Father, we bow before Your Throne and we say thank You, glory be to your Name forever and ever. Thank you for being God indeed unto us. Thank You for bring to pass Your promises and doing that which only You can do. Glory be to Your Name on high.

Beloved, how is it going? The year is gradually rolling away, surprise? A little flash back will take us to the beginning of this same year. We made so many plans, so many decisions and the day goes into week and weeks into month and here we are counting the remaining days with our fingers. Wow! Beloved let’s Praise the Lord.

You may not have achieved everything you set as budget but do you know that the greatest miracle is what you have – you have the gift of life. Beloved with God all things are possible. Do still have God as your Lord and personal Saviour?

If you do, the greatest work has been done. Yes! The Lord who you partner with being every other to past. Praise God. He will help you and bring your plans to past. Many storms may have hit you as move on but your resolve never to give up is what will defeat the works of darkness all around you.

Are you steadfast in your decision to finish well and strong? Then what happened along the line? You deviated? You got distracted, you got carried away? What happened? Or you got disappointed, what happened to you?

Our Lord Jesus faced the same challenge but He overcame it. So you too will overcome. Praise God. You may have not gotten there but you still can make it if you are steadfast in your resolve to make it.

What are you facing presently that wants to digress you from the course you have planned, the calling of God upon your life?

Beloved, please come along with me as we discover more as we go through the pieces below?

 

When the days were coming to a close for Him to be taken up, He determined to journey to Jerusalem.—Luke 9:51

It is easy to become distracted in the Christian life! The moment you understand what God wants you to do, it will seem as though everyone around you requires your time and attention! When the time came for Jesus to go to the cross, He “set His face” toward Jerusalem, so that nothing would prevent Him from accomplishing His Father’s will. So obvious was His resolve to go to Jerusalem that the Samaritans, who hated the Jews, rejected Him because they recognized that He was a Jew traveling through their village to the hated city of Jerusalem.

Jesus determined not to digress from His mission, but He took time to minister to many people along His way. He sent out seventy disciples into the surrounding towns (Luke 10:1). He healed lepers (Luke 17:11–19). He cured a man of dropsy (Luke 14:1–4). He brought salvation to the home of Zaccheus (Luke 19:1–10). He continued to teach His disciples (Luke 15:1–32). Jesus did not refuse to minister to others as He went to Calvary, but ultimately He refused to be deterred from His Father’s will.

If you know what God wants you to do, set your sights resolutely toward that goal with full determination to accomplish it (Prov. 4:25). Your resolve to go where God is leading ought to be evident to those around you. Beware of becoming so sidetracked by the opportunities around you that you lose sight of God’s ultimate goal for you. Do not succumb to the temptation to delay your obedience or to discard it altogether. Once you have received a clear assignment from God, your response should be unwavering obedience.

Beloved did you read that? Do not succumb to temptation of delay obedience or discard, may God help us in Jesus Name. Let’s keep going, come for more discover:

 

“A spring shut up, a fountain sealed.” Song 4:12

 

In this metaphor, which has reference to the inner life of a believer, we have very plainly the idea of secrecy. It is a spring shut up: just as there were springs in the East, over which an edifice was built, so that none could reach them save those who knew the secret entrance; so is the heart of a believer when it is renewed by grace: there is a mysterious life within which no human skill can touch.

It is a secret which no other man knoweth; nay, which the very man who is the possessor of it cannot tell to his neighbour. The text includes not only secrecy, but separation. It is not the common spring, of which every passer-by may drink, it is one kept and preserved from all others; it is a fountain bearing a particular mark—a king’s royal seal, so that all can perceive that it is not a common fountain, but a fountain owned by a proprietor, and placed specially by itself alone.

So is it with the spiritual life. The chosen of God were separated in the eternal decree; they were separated by God in the day of redemption; and they are separated by the possession of a life which others have not; and it is impossible for them to feel at home with the world, or to delight in its pleasures.

There is also the idea of sacredness. The spring shut up is preserved for the use of some special person: and such is the Christian’s heart. It is a spring kept for Jesus. Every Christian should feel that he has God’s seal upon him—and he should be able to say with Paul, “From henceforth let no man trouble me, for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.”

Another idea is prominent—it is that of security. Oh! how sure and safe is the inner life of the believer! If all the powers of earth and hell could combine against it, that immortal principle must still exist, for He who gave it pledged His life for its preservation. And who “is He that shall harm you,” when God is your protector?

Beloved, as we approach the end of the year, I just want to remind you the need to be focus and keep trusting the Lord for the best. Strange happenings as promised by the Lord will overtake you. I had an encounter that opened my mouth in awe of who God is. The blessings He promised we will also receive.

May God help us to be resolved in our stand to do His will alone in Jesus Name. Don’t forget, we are overcomers by the grace of God. we will finish well; we will finish strong. Praise God.

Be blessed in the Lord.
