All the glory must be to the Lord for He is worthy of praise, no man on earth should be glory to Himself, all the glory must be to the Lord.// We are confident to come to the place where You are, Lord, to come into the place where You are.
Yes Father, we are confident to come into the place where You are, Thank You Father for the gift of today. Our confident is in You Lord and I know that today’s fellowship with You will do wonders in our lives. It will break yokes, it dry up fountains that are not Your living water. It will set the oppressed free and the captive will gain true freedom in the Name of Jesus.
Beloveth, how are you doing? We are here again to honour our creator, our God, the Great I AM. The One Who has no Beginning; He has no End. The Ancient One. He is our Redeemer and Saviour, the Soon Coming King. Praise the Lord.
Today beloveth, we are going to use Nehemiah’s creed as we pray. The Word of the Lord said remind Me of My Word. It therefore saying to us, bring to remembrance (put Me to remembrance) those promises; those Word that have gone out of My mouth and must not return void but must accomplish all I have sent it to do.
Am so glad that I am serving a living God, whose Word is yea and amen. It can never fail but standeth sure. Am so exciting that He so empowered His only begotten Son just as He is and the same with the Holy Spirit, three cord that can never be broken. My wall standeth sure. Praise the Lord.
Come and hear this, in Psalms 100 verse 5 says “for the Lord is good, and His mercy is everlasting; His truth endureth to all generations.” (KJV). Beloveth, I want you to enter into the rheme of this verse of the Word. Consider it carefully, the Lord is good- no doubt about it or do you have a different opinion? I believe so much in God’s mercy and I think You do also. Now listen to this- His truth endureth to all generations.
Did you read it?The truth in the Word of God is generational truth. It was not only operative in the bible days, it is as effective and potent as it was then up to this present day. Remember we serve a God that is infallible, eternal and Sovereign. What more? It means that if God has be so kind and loving in the days of father Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, He is still the Same today.
God is still making saints out of us and cannot allow our generation to be without His goodness, His mercy and love, else we perish. It also means that whatever God said during creation will still be operational till the end of time.
Probably the problem of this age is that bible is taught as a history not as a Living Word. So we study the bible as those events that had taken place and may never happen in our time. That is why men are still in search of the truth instead of embracing the truth – Jesus.
Beloved, if God had been so loving in the time past as you read in the bible, God is still loving today. He has not change and will never change. If God has healed, saved, delivered, set free, and made whole. He is still able to it today His power has not abate one bit, it still potent as it was in the beginning.
So now what are those things you are believing God for? What are you trusting God for? Now we are to apply Nehemiah’s creed here- Remember me O God!(Neh 13:14) And as You pray and plead God’s promises and His faithfulness to His word, I see mountains move. Whatever be it you are passing through that is causing you a sleepless night, I see the power of God lifting it off your shoulder right now in Jesus Name.
Plead your case before God. Plead it without ceasing until you receive answers as did Nehemiah. Plead until heavens opens to you, plead your case until the truth in the Word becomes rheme in your live in Jesus Name.
Beloved, you must not end this month the same way you started it, God forbids. I am scaling height, am not at a spot at all, and I want same to be your testimony. You cannot be patient before God and God is not doing wonders in your life. For they that wait upon the Lord their strength are renewed, yours will not be an exception, your strength is being renew. New dimension of wisdom and knowledge is being deposited in your life in this special month.
Beloved, be sensitive in your Spirit, allow God to help You (Ps 119:173), cry unto Him and He will answer you and show those things which thou knoweth not (Jer 33:3). Do not let the enemy hold you captive, be alive in your Spirit man, and be alive in Christ Jesus.
Cry to God to remember you and show you His kindness and love. Today marks new era in your life, so be sensitive as you pray:
“The kindness and love of God our Saviour.” Titus 3:4
How sweet it is to behold the Saviour communing with His own beloved people! There can be nothing more delightful than, by the Divine Spirit, to be led into this fertile field of delight. Let the mind for an instant consider the history of the Redeemer’s love, and a thousand enchanting acts of affection will suggest themselves, all of which have had for their design the weaving of the heart into Christ, and the intertwisting of the thoughts and emotions of the renewed soul with the mind of Jesus.
When we meditate upon this amazing love, and behold the all-glorious Kinsman of the Church endowing her with all His ancient wealth, our souls may well faint for joy. Who is he that can endure such a weight of love? That partial sense of it which the Holy Spirit is sometimes pleased to afford, is more than the soul can contain; how transporting must be a complete view of it!
When the soul shall have understanding to discern all the Saviour’s gifts, wisdom wherewith to estimate them, and time in which to meditate upon them, such as the world to come will afford us, we shall then commune with Jesus in a nearer manner than at present. But who can imagine the sweetness of such fellowship?
It must be one of the things which have not entered into the heart of man, but which God hath prepared for them that love Him. Oh, to burst open the door of our Joseph’s granaries, and see the plenty which He hath stored up for us! This will overwhelm us with love.
By faith we see, as in a glass darkly, the reflected image of His unbounded treasures, but when we shall actually see the heavenly things themselves, with our own eyes, how deep will be the stream of fellowship in which our soul shall bathe itself! Till then our loudest sonnets shall be reserved for our loving benefactor, Jesus Christ our Lord, whose love to us is wonderful, passing the love of women.
What a glorious day, the Lord has made and say we should rejoice and be glad in it. Come as you be part of God’s glory even while you here in earth, come along:
“Received up into glory.” 1Timothy 3:16
We have seen our well-beloved Lord in the days of His flesh, humiliated and sore vexed; for He was “despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief.” He whose brightness is as the morning, wore the sackcloth of sorrow as His daily dress: shame was His mantle, and reproach was His vesture.
Yet now, inasmuch as He has triumphed over all the powers of darkness upon the bloody tree, our faith beholds our King returning with dyed garments from Edom, robed in the splendour of victory. How glorious must He have been in the eyes of seraphs, when a cloud received Him out of mortal sight, and He ascended up to heaven!
Now He wears the glory which He had with God or ever the earth was, and yet another glory above all—that which He has well earned in the fight against sin, death, and hell. As victor He wears the illustrious crown. Hark how the song swells high! It is a new and sweeter song: “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain, for He hath redeemed us unto God by His blood!”
He wears the glory of an Intercessor who can never fail, of a Prince who can never be defeated, of a Conqueror who has vanquished every foe, of a Lord who has the heart’s allegiance of every subject. Jesus wears all the glory which the pomp of heaven can bestow upon Him, which ten thousand times ten thousand angels can minister to Him.
You cannot with your utmost stretch of imagination conceive His exceeding greatness; yet there will be a further revelation of it when He shall descend from heaven in great power, with all the holy angels—”Then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory.” Oh, the splendour of that glory! It will ravish His people’s hearts. Nor is this the close, for eternity shall sound His praise, “Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever!”
Reader, if you would joy in Christ’s glory hereafter, He must be glorious in your sight now. Is He so?
My answer is yes! And yours is …… fill in the blank space (do you remember those days we are asked to fill in the correct answer) so do same here. Praise the Lord.
I will call upon the Name of Lord, I will remind Him all His sweet promises to my heart, and like Nehemiah prayed, I will pray also, “remember me O! Lord, remember thy servant, your handmaid and all who will call upon You through this devotional today in Jesus Name.
Beloved, watch out! God will yet honour His Name for He is good, His mercies (Love) is Everlasting and His truth (Faithfulness) endureth to all generations.
So begin to make a joyful noise unto him…., His mercy endureth forever.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
