My God and My Lord Who art in heaven, we thank You for all that You have done for us. We are grateful to You for the gift of life. Thank You for our daily provisions and supply from on high. We are indeed grateful unto Thee, for being so mindful of us. Thank You Lord.
My dear beloveth, I am not God but the God Who sits in the affairs of men will perfect that concerns you as you faithfully commit your ways into His Hands. He will meet with you and proof to you again that His is Jehovah ELYON-The Most High God (Gen14:18); Jehovah EL-ASHIYB – The Lord my Restorer (Ruth 4:15, Ps 23:3).
Faithful is He that promise and be it done unto me according Your Word was a strong prayer by the mother of our Saviour Jesus Christ (Mary) when the angel visited her.
We will be considering today, where is strength of “Faith”. Everybody talks about it without knowing or doing what is commanding us to do.
My prayer for you this day is to discover the truth about faith and apply same to your life, and don’t forget to work along with patience because the need might arise at any point in time:
“Tell me I pray thee wherein thy great strength lieth.” Judges 16:6
Where lies the secret strength of faith? It lies in the food it feeds on; for faith studies what the promise is—an emanation of divine grace, an overflowing of the great heart of God; and faith says, “My God could not have given this promise, except from love and grace; therefore it is quite certain His Word will be fulfilled.”
Then faith thinketh, “Who gave this promise?” It considereth not so much its greatness, as, “Who is the author of it?” She remembers that it is God who cannot lie—God omnipotent, God immutable; and therefore concludeth that the promise must be fulfilled; and forward she advances in this firm conviction.
She remembereth, why the promise was given,—namely, for God’s glory, and she feels perfectly sure that God’s glory is safe, that He will never stain His own escutcheon, nor mar the lustre of His own crown; and therefore the promise must and will stand.
Then faith also considereth the amazing work of Christ as being a clear proof of the Father’s intention to fulfil His word. “He that spared not His own Son, but freely delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?”
Moreover faith looks back upon the past, for her battles have strengthened her, and her victories have given her courage. She remembers that God never has failed her; nay, that He never did once fail any of His children. She recollecteth times of great peril, when deliverance came; hours of awful need, when as her day her strength was found, and she cries, “No, I never will be led to think that He can change and leave His servant now.
Hitherto the Lord hath helped me, and He will help me still.” Thus faith views each promise in its connection with the promise-giver, and, because she does so, can with assurance say, “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life!”
I held my breath a moment in knowing what my God can do and the force behind every Word of God. I am taken aback because sometimes our faith fail us not because God is a liar nor is no longer potent, but because we fail to remember that though it tarries the promise will still come to past.
Where is this message meeting you today? In what way have you gain back your confidence? Are you gaining dominion over all that once put you down? Beloved, this month must not end without proof of God in your life. Be faithful and stand on that Solid Rock Jesus and you will have a testimony.
Interesting, God use only faithful men and women to accomplish His work. Are you faithful? God cannot give you what you cannot handle. When the children of Israelite where going to the promised land, their faith failed them. All those involved fail to enter into the promise land as the Lord was not pleased with them.
They wandered around until He found the faithful ones to be use of Him and so He told them to move forward. Beloveth, where are you with God in your quest in lives towards achieving your heart desires ? He promised us that He will grant it, only let it align with that of His. He use only the faithful and the useful:
“Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me Ps. 101:6
If David spoke thus, we may be sure that the Son of David will be of the same mind. Jesus looks out for faithful men, and He fixes His eyes upon them, to observe them, to bring them forward, to encourage them, and to reward them. Let no true-hearted man think that he is overlooked; the King Himself has His eye upon him.
There are two results of this royal notice. First we read, “that they may dwell with me.” Jesus brings the faithful into His house, He sets them in His palace, He makes them His companions, He delights in their society. We must be true to our Lord, and He will then manifest Himself to us. When our faithfulness costs us most it will be best rewarded; the more furiously men reject, the more joyfully will our Lord receive us.
Next, he says of the sincere man, “he shall serve me.” Jesus will use for His own glory those who scorn the tricks of policy, and are faithful to Himself, His Word, and His Cross. These shall be in His royal retinue, the honored servants of His Majesty. Communion and usefulness are the wages of faithfulness. Lord make me faithful, that I may dwell with thee, and serve thee.
This is a turning point in someone’s life. Yield yourself and see what becomes of you. He called me into His service since 2012 and He has continued to be Faithful in all that concerns me and my household. He will not fail you either. For He qualify the elect.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
