Who is like unto Thee O! Lord! Who is like unto Thee, O! Lord! Among the gods who is like Thee, You are glorious in holiness fearful in praises doing wonder alleluia. // Come praise the Lord! 2x All yea servants of the Lord, Who stands by night in the house of the Lord. Lift up your voice in the Holy place come praise the Lord! Come praise the Lord! come praise the Lord.

Father, we bless Your Holy Name for Who You. We bow before You Throne to worship and to adore You Lord. Thank You Father for another opportunity to serve in this part of eternity. You created the World and all that is in it are for Your glory. You made us for Your pleasure, praise God!

Beloved, how Excellent is the Name of our God. He walks in Majesty and every demons tremble at His Presence. Therefore, we are confident to come into His Presence. Praise God.

Beloveth, I am so excited this day as I write. The ministration of today said it all. Often times we look at the dark side of our life and experiences and think that God has fail to be faithful according to His promises to us but looking farther, we have a song of victory to sing and rejoice because God has done great things for us whereof where are glad.

He has delivered us from dangerous moments and situations. Uncountable times God has been faithful making a way where there seems to be way. Leading us on even we are afraid to move on. Showing us mercy in hour of temptations. Providing for all our needs even we cannot see it coming.

Beloved, are we ungrateful to Him despite all that He has done for us? Are we zealous in service or slothful? How often do we spend time in worship and praising Him just for Who He is not for what He has done?

Beloved, this month is a very special one for all whose heart is yearning for God because He will surely make us glad. He will put laughter in our mouth and great will be our peace.  Come with me as we discover more of His faithfulness:

“The Lord hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad.” Psalm 126:3

 

Some Christians are sadly prone to look on the dark side of everything, and to dwell more upon what they have gone through than upon what God has done for them. Ask for their impression of the Christian life, and they will describe their continual conflicts, their deep afflictions, their sad adversities, and the sinfulness of their hearts, yet with scarcely any allusion to the mercy and help which God has vouchsafed them.

But a Christian whose soul is in a healthy state, will come forward joyously, and say, “I will speak, not about myself, but to the honour of my God. He hath brought me up out of an horrible pit, and out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings: and He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God. The Lord hath done great things for me, whereof I am glad.”

Such an abstract of experience as this is the very best that any child of God can present. It is true that we endure trials, but it is just as true that we are delivered out of them. It is true that we have our corruptions, and mournfully do we know this, but it is quite as true that we have an all-sufficient Saviour, who overcomes these corruptions, and delivers us from their dominion.

In looking back, it would be wrong to deny that we have been in the Slough of Despond, and have crept along the Valley of Humiliation, but it would be equally wicked to forget that we have been through them safely and profitably; we have not remained in them, thanks to our Almighty Helper and Leader, who has brought us “out into a wealthy place.”

The deeper our troubles, the louder our thanks to God, who has led us through all, and preserved us until now. Our griefs cannot mar the melody of our praise, we reckon them to be the bass part of our life’s song, “He hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad.”

Beloved, did you read that “the deeper our troubles, the louder our thanks to God. I do this a lot. And I think is wise to share it with you. Whenever the situation seems to be over bearing, and Satan is reminding me every second what ought to be but is not yet. The next thing I do as each reminder is God I thank you. I will keep saying it until I got release in my Spirit to stop. And will shout alleluia! Satan will bow because I refuse to acknowledge his reminder and it fades away. Praise God!

How do we keep off the accuser from our paths beloved? We do that mostly by searching the scripture. Let’s discover more:

“Search the Scriptures.” John 5:39

 

The Greek word here rendered search signifies a strict, close, diligent, curious search, such as men make when they are seeking gold, or hunters when they are in earnest after game. We must not rest content with having given a superficial reading to a chapter or two, but with the candle of the Spirit we must deliberately seek out the hidden meaning of the word. Holy Scripture requires searching—much of it can only be learned by careful study.

There is milk for babes, but also meat for strong men. The rabbis wisely say that a mountain of matter hangs upon every word, yea, upon every title of Scripture. Tertullian exclaims, “I adore the fulness of the Scriptures.” No man who merely skims the book of God can profit thereby; we must dig and mine until we obtain the hid treasure.

The door of the word only opens to the key of diligence. The Scriptures claim searching. They are the writings of God, bearing the divine stamp and imprimatur—who shall dare to treat them with levity? He who despises them despises the God who wrote them. God forbid that any of us should leave our Bibles to become swift witnesses against us in the great day of account.

The word of God will repay searching. God does not bid us sift a mountain of chaff with here and there a grain of wheat in it, but the Bible is winnowed corn—we have but to open the granary door and find it. Scripture grows upon the student. It is full of surprises. Under the teaching of the Holy Spirit, to the searching eye it glows with splendour of revelation, like a vast temple paved with wrought gold, and roofed with rubies, emeralds, and all manner of gems. No merchandise like the merchandise of Scripture truth.

Lastly, the Scriptures reveal Jesus: “They are they which testify of Me.” No more powerful motive can be urged upon Bible readers than this: he who finds Jesus finds life, heaven, all things. Happy he who, searching his Bible, discovers his Saviour.

Can we do a little of searching and memorizing of the scripture today? I think we will be happy we did.

Start with these- (Col 3:17; Prov 18:10; Ezek 36:26; Gal 1:4; 1Tim 4:14; 2Cor 13:11; Ps 138:5)

Beloved, let us always seek to be glad as that is the plan of God concerning us.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
