Let the living Praise the Lord, let the living Praise the Lord let the living Praise the Lord 2x// You are worthy O Lord, You are worthy O Lord! You are worthy Lord, You are worthy O Lord! You are worthy O! Lord.

O Father in heaven o God! You are truly worthy of our Praise. thank You for Your Faithfulness, thank You for miracles, thank You for grace, thank You for Your love, thank You for mercies, thank You for grace that are unmerited but You are so Kind to bestow on us. Thank You for Jesus Christ that you gave for us to be saved from hell. Thank You. Thank You Father. Glory and honour be unto Thee receive our praise O Lord!

Beloved, how are doing? How was week too? Hope not so stressful? Glory be to God!  a little run down through the weekly ministration, we discussed about be broken and smoking, how you can be healed by clinging on Jesus and also getting our comfort from Jesus and learning from those who has gone ahead of us. The grace of God was ministered to heal and bind our broken hearts, keep our heart from despair and align us to the Christ who is still in the business of receiving sinners and making them soldiers and armies for the propagation of the gospel. Praise God.

We discover a secret that will let you in into receiving from God always is by reading and mediating in the word of God. Another interesting thing discussed was the act of adoration as a mode of worship offered to God. Wahoo! It was a blessing to my soul and you will agree with me. It blew my mind and I am yet to get over it. Praise God!

Today we will be wrap up with the today’s topic which says “Sufferers make strong Believers. Beloveth, how far do you want to go with God? A mile or more. What distance are willing to go for the love of Christ?

I discover that as soon as you make a fresh commitment in service of our Lord Jesus, Satan will bombard you with all manner of assault to discourage and backslide on your commitment. Beloved, it is not a time to give up but a time to fight stronger and get more committed.

You must not bow to pressure of Satan and his kingdom but rather you must reiterate to him like Paul “You know whom you believe. It heat that make gold, silver, diamond and platinum to be precious stone, the dross goes off when subjected to heat and release a precious stone that has values.

I decree into your live that every impurities covering your value melt by fire in Jesus Name. I pray to God to uphold you to the end as you finish strong and well in Jesus Name.

The second ministration is special chosen to encourage someone who is passing through a trying period and is determine to scale through than pull out. The grace of the Almighty God will see you through and be sufficient for you especially where the end will glorify God.

Defect not an option for a child of God, and will never be. No matter what the devil has plan, no matter how he has presented it, the power of God will upturn their antics and frustrate their enterprise.

Every household enemies lacking out your secret to stop your progress must die by fire in the Name of Jesus. The wrath of God whose plan for us is for good will sweep him/her off the surface of the earth in Jesus Name. Whoever swear to hinder the work of God in your life and ministry will not succeed in Jesus Name.

Beloved, do not close your mouth but make declaration as I have discover also that must problems we encounter in live is man-made than the evil Spirit so don’t keep quite. Else the devil will make you a mix meat which is far from the desire of God for you.

While holding forth to please God, may we not suffer because of scheme of evil ones around us in Jesus Name. Amen! Let discover more:

“It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.” Lam. 3:27


This is as good as a promise. It has been good, it is good, and it will be good for me to bear the yoke.

Early in life I had to feel the weight of conviction, and ever since it has proved a soul-enriching burden. Should I have loved the gospel so well had I not learned by deep experience the need of salvation by grace? Jabez was more honorable than his brethren because his mother bare him with sorrow, and those who suffer much in being born unto God make strong believers in sovereign grace.

The yoke of censure is an irksome one, but it prepares a man for future honor. He is not fit to be a leader who has not run the gauntlet of contempt. Praise intoxicates if it be not preceded by abuse. Men who rise to eminence without a struggle usually fall into dishonor.

The yoke of affliction, disappointment, and excessive labor is by no means to be sought for; but when the Lord lays it on us in our youth it frequently develops a character which glorifies God and blesses the Church.

Come, my soul, bow thy neck; take up thy cross. It was good for thee when young, it will not harm thee now. For Jesus’ sake, shoulder it cheerfully.

Beloved, it is indeed good to bear our yoke when we are young than when we are old. But hear what Caleb had to say in Joshua 14: 6 -15. So how old are you? Are up to fourscore and five year old and he said, “I am still strong as I was when I was forty and five years.” Beloved, defeat is not an option for you but rather hold on to God, the Author and finisher of your Faith. Praise God.



 Defeat? Not Even An Option!


Today, are you on the brink of sinking into defeat? Then consider Paul’s plight:

Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea, I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my own countrymen, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false brothers. I have labored and toiled and have often gone without sleep; I have known hunger and thirst and have often gone without food; I have been cold and naked.” (2 Corinthians 11:24-27)

And what was Paul’s response to life’s would be “defeats”? “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.” (2 Corinthians 4:8-10)

Defeat? Not even an option!

Abraham Lincoln ignored “defeat” on his road to becoming America’s most beloved and greatest President:

Failed in business in 1831

Defeated for Legislature in 1832

Second failure in business in 1833

Suffered nervous breakdown in 1836

Defeated for Speaker in 1838

Defeated for election in 1840

Defeated for Congress in 1848

Defeated for Senate in 1855

Defeated for Vice President in 1856

Defeated for Senate in 1858

Elected for President in 1860

Defeat? Not even an option!

Perhaps the birds have it best figured out: “Said the Robin to the Sparrow: I should really like to know why these anxious humans rush about and worry so. Said the Sparrow to the Robin, Friend, I think that it must be that they have no heavenly Father such as cares for you and me.‘” (Elizabeth Cheney)

So today, choose to rest your hand in His as He grants you victory out of the jaws of defeat.

Though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises againA righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all.” (Proverbs 24:16a; Psalm 34:19)

Defeat? Not even an option!

Yes! Lincoln did not give up despite several defeat until he became the President of America, isn’t it wonderful? Beloved, even though you fail seven times, the Word of God said “you will raise again” because your case is different, God has promise to deliver you from them all.

Worthy of note- God sent a raven to feed Elijah (1 Kings 17:6- 7). Noah in Gen 8:7 also sent the raven to know if the flood had dried up the surface of the earth. So if ravens are instrument use by God to deliver His people, He will not stop with you He will yet send you a “raven.” So hear me if that is what God need to help you, He will use it. So don’t give up, the God of host will surely meet that need in Jesus Name Praise the Lord.

May God make you stronger from all your sufferings in Jesus Name. You will not waste it rather you will use it to build the Kingdom stronger in Jesus Name. I am using mine; so you will also (2Cor 1:4-11). May His grace be sufficient for you in Jesus Name (2Cor 12:9).

I hope this PCL session is blessing someone today. Go and do likewise. May the Hand of the Lord strengthen you in your trying moment in life in Jesus Name.

Have a restful weekend and be blessed in the Name of the Lord Amen!  See on Monday by God’s grace.

Someone will sing this song soon – I will exalt You Lord, for thou has lifted me above my enemies, Your banner over me is love.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
