Amazing grace! how sweet the sound—, That saved a wretch like me! I once was lost but now am found, Was blind but now I see.  ‘T was grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved; How precious did that grace appear, The hour I first believed!// Serving the living God yes! Am serving the living God Amen, serving the Living God Yes! Am serving the living God amen. Are you serving the Living God Yes! Am serving the living God Amen!

We thank Father for a glorious Thursday when our Saviour embarked on the journey that saved my soul and the souls of the whole world, Gracious Father, we thank You, we blessed Your Holy Name, glory be to You on high. What a wonderful love bestowed upon us that he has made, be glorified, be magnified Lord.

Arise God as in the of old and draw men back to Yourself. Show forth Your power and deliver us from every shackles of sins that held us captive, be thou glorified.

Beloved, today we will witness again the solemnization of one of Jesus’s greatest teaching as it is contained in the Bible servant leadership as it was later tagged by both the church and secular. It has use to demonstrate the kingdom values and has yield much dividend.

Jesus demonstrated the highest humility by stooping down to wash the feet of His disciples which have never been seen in His time neither is it common among men of today.

The teaching from this event brought to light the desire of God when he said I desire mercy than sacrifices. It is the desire of Lord Jesus that sinners turn into righteous never to condemn anyone as he dies us while we are yet sinners. (1Tm 1:15, Rom 5:10).

I promised to continue today while writing yesterday on why Jesus wanted his disciples to be much in prayer while He was praying at the Garden. While observing the Passover feast, Jesus was fore telling the disciples what will happen. Little did they know that the time is closer than they ever imagine. He quickly reminded Peter also called Simon, which is the text of today, how Satan hath desired to have him, but being a good Shepherd, He told Him that he has prayed for him.

Another remarkable even of the Master Jesus, Who seat enthroned in heaven daily interceding for you and I so that we will not fall into temptation and be eternally damn. Praise God.

Beloved, as we pray, may we also enjoy Divine intercession and protection from the seen and unseen battles of lives in Jesus Name. May our faith stand firm in the Lord and not been shaking in Jesus Name. May we continue to strengthen others that are fallen and not be a sorts of discouragement to them in Jesus Name.

Beloved, we should be instrument of reconciliation and not of discouragement (2 Cor 5:18).

I had an experienced last year that wanted to leave me in the pit of bitterness except for the help of God. Sincerely Christians should watch their steps and actions and be such that they are daily walking in the path of mercy and not sacrifices, may God continue to help us in Jesus Name.

We will by the grace of God in the second ministration make you aware of the “Fear to fear.”  The Word of God told us the fear to fear. Fear not them that destroy only the flesh and not the soul (Matt 10:28).

Beloved, my God is more than able to deliver and to make whole. Watch therefore, stand firm and keep trusting because the God we serve is more than able to delivery us and to make whole. Faithful is the King of glory.

If God delivered Dan from the lion’s den, the three Hebrew boys from the furnace and our Lord Jesus did countless miracles among them is the teaching of the day, beloved what more can He not do for you and I?

Learn from Him to be humble and He will also lift you higher.

“Simon, Simon, look out! Satan has asked to sift you like wheat.

But I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And you, when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”—Luke 22:31–32

Jesus dearly loved Peter. Jesus spoke to him specifically and said, “Simon! Simon! Satan has made a request to sift all of you (plural) as wheat. But I have prayed for you (singular), that your faith will not fail. And when you (singular) have returned to Me, strengthen your brothers.” Even as Jesus faced His imminent arrest and crucifixion, He took time to strengthen Peter for what was to come! He assured him that God had set limits on Satan’s influence.

He expressed His confidence that even though Peter’s faith would falter, he would overcome, to the point of strengthening others. Since Jesus Himself was interceding for Peter, Peter might fail for a moment, but his life would ultimately be victorious.

Jesus is fully aware of every temptation and test you will encounter, and He stands ready to deliver you (1 Cor. 10:13). He intercedes for you just as He did for Peter (Rom. 8:34; Heb. 7:25). Temptation might catch you by surprise, but Jesus is already interceding with the Father on your behalf.

 Remember that temptation is not a sin. When you are tempted, turn immediately to Jesus. He will take you to the Father, and you will overcome the temptation, for Jesus has overcome everything you can face in the world (1 John 4:4). When you are tested and are secure in the intercession of Jesus, you, too, will be able to strengthen others.

If you are grappling with temptation, Jesus is interced-ing for you with the Father even now. Be steadfast and encouraged!

Did you read that? I don’t know at what point the battle of life left you and you may have been sucking there and blaming every other person except yourself. Jesus said be steadfast and be encouraged. I didn’t have a good night rest so to speak because of what happened yesterday before I went to bed. I was greatly worried and I felt not too good but I never allowed to degenerate into depression.

I woke up this morning early enough and did a Praise of over one hour put forth that situation before God. I was humming and singing with my spirit man because like I told you I felt not too good. Now the Spirit of God spoke forth as I was ended my session of Praise, He gave two scripture to read Ps 146 and Ps 139. Hear what He said to me “my beloved, this is not the end, there is still much room for improvement.”

My beloved when I read the two passages I receive I went from sorrowing to singing with my month. I told you that I sang in my Spirit for over an hour burst into tongue still praying in my spirit but when the Maker of my life who saw me when my body was still unformed, who knew how I was knitted together gave a Word for my situation my Spirit lifted and I cannot but sing out aloud and offer praises to Him. Read Lk 1: 41 to understand such an experience.

Beloved, we are all in the making. Don’t condemn yourself or write yourself off. Don’t write off any situation but with a humble heart and in lowliness of mind with your nothingness except with the help of God, go before Him and He will surely help you and not abandon you. Did I tell you He gave insight on what to do? Wow! He did, that is the God we serve. Praise God. He cannot leave you nor forsake you, if you trust in Him.   Read further to know the “fear to fear.”

 

“Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord.” Jer. 1:8

                                                  

Whenever fear comes in and makes us falter, we are in danger of falling into sin. Conceit is to be dreaded, but so is cowardice. “Dare to be a Daniel.” Our great Captain should be served by brave soldiers.

What a reason for bravery is here! God is with those who are with Him. God will never be away when the hour of struggle comes. Do they threaten you? Who are you that you should be afraid of a man that shall die? Will you lose your situation? Your God whom you serve will find bread and water for His servants. Can you not trust Him? Do they pour ridicule upon you? Will this break your bones or your heart? Bear it for Christ’s sake, and even rejoice because of it.

God is with the true, the just, the holy, to deliver them; and He will deliver you. Remember how Daniel came out of the lions’ den, and the three holy children out of the furnace. Yours is not so desperate a case as theirs; but if it were, the Lord would bear you through, and make you more than a conqueror.

Fear to fear. Be afraid to be afraid. Your worst enemy is within your own bosom. Get to your knees and cry for help, and then rise up saying, “I will trust, and not be afraid.”

We must built our faith on a solid Rock and stand to be counted. Yes! We will represent Jesus, serve as He served and only fear Him who is able to destroy both body and soul. Praise the Lord!

Finally as Christ ambassadors let us continually reconcile the perishing unto our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Cor 5:19-21. when we are tested may we ever be secure by the Hand of the Most High God.

Remain blessed in the Lord.

Please you can continual to sing. Only a soul that has once enjoyed forgive will know how to give and receive on – he John Newton was one of such person. As Jesus forgive you and restored you, learn also to do same to others.

The Lord has promised good to me,

His word my hope secures;

He will my shield and portion be

As long as life endures.

 

Through many dangers, toils and snares

I have already come;

‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,

And grace will lead me home.

 

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,

Bright shining as the sun,

We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise

Than when we’d first begun.
