Thanks, thanks Lord we give You thanks for all You have done, Father we are so blessed, our soul had find rest, O God we give You thanks.// Father, we offer praise, we offer praise, Father we glorify Your Holy Name 2x.
Indeed Father we offer praise and worship unto You alone Who is Worthy of our praises. Thank You Father for the month of April, Thank Father for the finish work of Calvary. Thank you for protection and guidance all through this month, ensuring our safety and provisions. Thank God for the wearing us an ornaments of beauty of the inner mind, Blessed be Thy Holy Name Amen!
Beloved, I believe the month has been a pleasant one and you have every course to praise the Name of the Lord. So many good things happened to us, God’s children and we are grateful to the Almighty God who brought it to pass.
Someone is slow in counting his or her blessings but I tell you even if there is nothing physically you can hold on to, rejoice and be glad in the Lord your Savior according to God’s Word and as you do so, new things will begin to happen in your life and situation. Those blessings that were hindered will manifest in Jesus Name.
Today is Friday, the last of it in this month, praise the Lord. We are thanking God that we saw the beginning and by His grace we are seeing the end, glory be to God on high, alleluia. Today calls for a closer examination of our walk with God and I believe you are ready?
All through the month we considered how to dominate with the love of Christ. I have my own trials to prove this topic true and true. I had curse not to love as I ought, I had cause to allow the naturally tendency to take over me during the course of the month, but I thank God for His abounding grace given to us for every good works. I thank God for His love He shared aboard in our heart that enabled me to pull through.
I am so happy that Jesus helpeth me and am so sure you have some testimonies too. Glory be to God. Dominating through the love of Christ is not coming to an end after this month but will be a continual thing in our lives having received the seed in our individual lives, let us not allow the evil one to stifle it through envy, bitterness, unforgiveness or any wholeness attitude or behavior. Praise God.
Beloved, a lot of things struggle with our love for God. There are so many things that want to question who we are; our identity in the Lord Jesus. But we have great assurance in the Word of God that is so comforting and smoothing.
On one occasion while I was shopping, I came across some beautifully designed, well arranged and colourful containers that is filled with pill-like substances while some were grounded like mashed rice. On further inquiry from the shop attendant, she told me things that I couldn’t help laughing out loud. According to her, she said that they have different functions but one caught my attention, it helps relax your nerves after the day’s hassling.
So if men can manufacture something that will relax and smoothens your nerves when added to water to bath, beloved imagine what the Word of God will do in your life. It is not limited by location or occasion. You can read it or confess it anywhere, at any time.
The Word works both in the secular and the spiritual arena, O you ought give Jesus a clapping offering, I heard a loud shouting ovation from someone, let us give a shout offering to the Lord Who is beautiful in all situation.
Beloved, we will be rounding off this month by reminding ourselves that “we are more than conquerors in the Lord.”
Is someone dancing unto the Lord? Is another making shouts of rejoicing, is possible you cannot do all this where you are as you are reading but you can at least smile and give out some chuckles unto the Lord. Praise Jesus.
Come with me as we go through our teaching for the day, I believe we will be thoroughly blessed:
“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.” Romans 8:37
We go to Christ for forgiveness, and then too often look to the law for power to fight our sins. Paul thus rebukes us, “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?”
Take your sins to Christ’s cross, for the old man can only be crucified there: we are crucified with Him. The only weapon to fight sin with is the spear which pierced the side of Jesus. To give an illustration—you want to overcome an angry temper, how do you go to work? It is very possible you have never tried the right way of going to Jesus with it.
How did I get salvation? I came to Jesus just as I was, and I trusted Him to save me. I must kill my angry temper in the same way? It is the only way in which I can ever kill it. I must go to the cross with it, and say to Jesus, “Lord, I trust Thee to deliver me from it.” This is the only way to give it a death-blow.
Are you covetous? Do you feel the world entangle you? You may struggle against this evil so long as you please, but if it be your besetting sin, you will never be delivered from it in any way but by the blood of Jesus. Take it to Christ. Tell Him, “Lord, I have trusted Thee, and Thy name is Jesus, for Thou dost save Thy people from their sins; Lord, this is one of my sins; save me from it!”
Ordinances are nothing without Christ as a means of mortification. Your prayers, and your repentances, and your tears—the whole of them put together—are worth nothing apart from Him. “None but Jesus can do helpless sinners good;” or helpless saints either. You must be conquerors through Him who hath loved you, if conquerors at all. Our laurels must grow among His olives in Gethsemane.
Did you read that – we are nothing aside Him –Lord Jesus Christ. It is in His love, we will conquer all the fray dart of the enemies targeted to bring us down. Ask God to help you with any besetting sin that holds you down. Call on Jesus now and it will lose it holds on you. Come to Him as you are and see His glory radiating in you Amen!
Let’s read more:
“Lo, in the midst of the throne… stood a Lamb as it had been slain.” Revelation 5:6
Why should our exalted Lord appear in His wounds in glory? The wounds of Jesus are His glories, His jewels, His sacred ornaments. To the eye of the believer, Jesus is passing fair because He is “white and ruddy” white with innocence, and ruddy with His own blood.
We see Him as the lily of matchless purity, and as the rose crimsoned with His own gore. Christ is lovely upon Olivet and Tabor, and by the sea, but oh! there never was such a matchless Christ as He that did hang upon the cross. There we beheld all His beauties in perfection, all His attributes developed, all His love drawn out, all His character expressed.
Beloved, the wounds of Jesus are far more fair in our eyes than all the splendour and pomp of kings. The thorny crown is more than an imperial diadem. It is true that He bears not now the sceptre of reed, but there was a glory in it that never flashed from sceptre of gold. Jesus wears the appearance of a slain Lamb as His court dress in which He wooed our souls, and redeemed them by His complete atonement.
Nor are these only the ornaments of Christ: they are the trophies of His love and of His victory. He has divided the spoil with the strong. He has redeemed for Himself a great multitude whom no man can number, and these scars are the memorials of the fight.
Ah! if Christ thus loves to retain the thought of His sufferings for His people, how precious should his wounds be to us!
“Behold how every wound of His
A precious balm distils,
Which heals the scars that sin had made,
And cures all mortal ills.
“Those wounds are mouths that preach His grace;
The ensigns of His love;
The seals of our expected bliss
In paradise above.”
How precious should His wound be to us, to cherish and to adorn without cause to reopen it again. Beloved, Jesus loves you, and I want to announce to you that you will dominate all with that same love if only you will obey.
Though the love of Christ many have been liberated from sins, it may be that you need to suffer some discomfort just to save many at the end.
Listen and hold on to this as we move from April to the month of May “you are more than conqueror through Him that loved you.” However don’t forget that Your miracle detailed for April will still locate You before its over.
See you in May by the special power of God, and be part of all the goodies therein.
Enjoy your weekend holistically by keeping the fire burning and see you soon.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
