Let the living Praise the Lord let the living Praise the Lord. Let the living Praise the Lord, let the living Praise the Lord.// who is like unto thee, O! Lord, who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods who is like thee you are glorious in holiness fearful in praises doing wonders alleluia.
Thank You Father for You are great, You do so many things so great there is no one else like you. Thank You for the gift of sleeping and waking up to the glory of Your Name. We worship You we glorify Your Holy Name. Receive our Praise forever in Jesus Name.
Beloved, we are in for another miracle that only the hand of God will wrought in our life. Faithful is your Name Lord. What a wonder our God is. So be full assured that He will manifest Himself greatly in our midst again powerfully more than ever before in Jesus Name.
The word success how or what does it represent to you? How do react when you hear about the success of someone around you. What easily comes to your mind?
As we later discover there are success that are devoid of God’s presence and there also success that God is solidly behind it.
Though we are call to be prosperous and successful in our various field of endeavours we must make it our top priority to put God first in everything. Yes! In everything.
We must be successful in our homes, business, career, and ministry and it must come with the presence of God following or even going ahead of us, ours will not be devour of God’s presence.
Moses cried unto God after God made His promised to gave them the promise land. He said that unless the presence of God goes before them God should not let move an inch from where they camped.
What a wonderful trust. He knows that the angel of God can go with them for He has had an experience of the presence of God so he is a man talking from experience, He is not trying to carry out experiment whether it will be okay to go without God’s presence or not. He made his choice known to God and God honoured Him. The rest is a story we are familiar with.
If a prophet like Moses will ask for God’s presence who are we that we to go without God’s presence.
So as we go through the wee and the rest of the year (life) beloved, covet the presence of God and shall be well with you. We saw God manifest Him power in the lives of the Israelites as they went through the wilderness. God provision of Manna, water and keep them fit all through the journey and it was recorded that they clothes did not wear off. Their was none feeble among them. What a resounding testimonies.
And that can be your testimonies if you allow God to go before you and make every crooked way to be smooth, straighten when you are weak. Make Himself present at every cross road.
Beloved never go before Him and it shall be well with you. I know how it is when God go ahead of us. He manifest Himself before us and fight all our secret battles, He gives us victory and the satan will be put to shame forever. Glory be to Jesus.
As you step out today to embark in your weekly activities invite God in your undertakings and it shall be well with you. The Lord will build you up and He will honour you. The Lord will perfect all that concerns you both now and forever.
It will not be said of us that our success is devoid of God’s presence. The Lord will be in our boat to rebuke and uproot and give us clear victory in Jesus Name. Glory be to God on high.
I am so excited for this week and am such someone has the same testimony. May the Name of the Lord be praised forever in Jesus Name.
Behold God is calling us His portion, Praise the Lord. Join to discover more:

“If Your presence does not go,” Moses responded to Him, “don’t make us go up from here.”—Exodus 33:15

 

It is possible to experience success and yet be void of God’s presence. If success is what is important to you, you may be tempted to choose accomplishments over your relationship with God. God offered to send an angel with the Israelites as they entered the Promised Land to ensure their success in every venture. No army could withstand them. No city wall could stop them. The wealth of the land lay before them. Everything they had ever dreamed of appeared to be theirs for the taking. The only thing missing would be the presence of God. God said they were an obstinate people, and He would not go with them when their hearts were far from Him.
The Israelites’ experience reveals that victory and great accomplishments are not necessarily a sign of God’s presence. Do not assume that your good health, your profitable business, or the growth of your ministry is due to the presence of God. It may be that you have inadvertently chosen success over your walk with the Lord.
Moses wisely concluded that success, no matter how great, is not a substitute for fellowship with God. Moses knew how quickly worldly achievements could disappear. His security came from his relationship with God. Success in the world’s eyes is not a sign of God’s blessing. It may, in fact, indicate that you have chosen a substitute for intimate fellowship with God.
Would you be satisfied to have success, power, and wealth, but not a relationship with God? Do you value God’s presence in your life more than the greatest achievements you could experience in the world?

“Thou art my portion, O Lord.” Psalm 119:57

 

Look at thy possessions, O believer, and compare thy portion with the lot of thy fellowmen. Some of them have their portion in the field; they are rich, and their harvests yield them a golden increase; but what are harvests compared with thy God, who is the God of harvests? What are bursting granaries compared with Him, who is the Husbandman, and feeds thee with the bread of heaven?
Some have their portion in the city; their wealth is abundant, and flows to them in constant streams, until they become a very reservoir of gold; but what is gold compared with thy God? Thou couldst not live on it; thy spiritual life could not be sustained by it. Put it on a troubled conscience, and could it allay its pangs? Apply it to a desponding heart, and see if it could stay a solitary groan, or give one grief the less?
But thou hast God, and in Him thou hast more than gold or riches ever could buy. Some have their portion in that which most men love–applause and fame; but ask thyself, is not thy God more to thee than that? What if a myriad clarions should be loud in thine applause, would this prepare thee to pass the Jordan, or cheer thee in prospect of judgment?
No, there are griefs in life which wealth cannot alleviate; and there is the deep need of a dying hour, for which no riches can provide. But when thou hast God for thy portion, thou hast more than all else put together. In Him every want is met, whether in life or in death. With God for thy portion thou art rich indeed, for He will supply thy need, comfort thy heart, assuage thy grief, guide thy steps, be with thee in the dark valley, and then take thee home, to enjoy Him as thy portion for ever.
“I have enough,” said Esau; this is the best thing a worldly man can say, but Jacob replies, “I have all things,” which is a note too high for carnal minds.
Beloved, I don’t need to talk more. When you have God, you have everything but outside Him you will have just “enough” glory be to God on high. God is saying to a reader of this devotional “you are my portion.”
Praise the Lord somebody!!!!!!!!!!!!! This week is going to testimonies filled and I am going to be among them what about you?
On this note we take off the week and at the end we will return with testimonies in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
