You are so good, Mighty Jesus I worship Lord You are so good. Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise. Father, we come to say thank You for the month of March for all You have done and for Who You Are. Father, we say “Thank You”. Glory, honour, adoration be ascribed unto You Alone Who is Worthy of our praise.
Holy Spirit of God Divine, we say Thank You, God the Son we say Thank You for delivering us from everlasting condemnation. We are most grateful to You for laying down Your life for the salvation of mankind. Thank You for the assurance of heaven and help us to accomplish same, Amen!
We are grateful for the month of March “In the power of His Might”. Sincerely I am standing here testifying the goodness of the Lord in the land of living. It was indeed a challenging month for me but God saw me through and sure you also must have a super testimony(ies) to share to the glory of God. His Word never fail. Thank God for the power in His Name.
The first quarter of the year will gradually slip away today but not until the day is over is yet to be over. You will agree with me that to some today marks the beginning of the new things that will happen in their life, so is not over until is over. The Lord will indeed reward you and crown this month with His goodness in Jesus Name. Amen! (2Pet 3:9)
Beloved, our Jesus was nail to the cross several years ago so that we may live but we still have our individual nails in our pocket crucifying Him afresh in many ways in our days. How? Someone just asked.
In many way I must tell you, come along with me for more discovery:
The Nails Of The Cross
“All of us carry the nails of the cross in our pocket,” wrote Martin Luther.
How easily we crucify Him!
- By subtly moving Him to the peripheral of our conversation when it is embarrassing to be identified with Christ.
- By compromising His principles in business when it is to our advantage to hedge the truth.
- By smugly taking credit for accomplishments that would have been impossible without His help.
While enjoying a warm and secure evening with Christ and the other disciples the night before the cross, Peter declares, “Lord, I will lay down my life for you.” In a matter of hours however, Peter distances himself from any association with Christ: Personal survival winning over telling and identifying with the Truth.
It is easy to promise Christ the moon when we are among His friends. The true test comes amidst times of guerrilla warfare in hostile enemy territory.
We would never physically crucify Christ. Of course. But how often do we subtly abandon Him when identifying with Him would jeopardize our peace, prosperity, or social standing?
Yes… we, like Peter, “carry the nails of the cross in our pocket.“
“Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 10:32-33)
Are doing just that, “confessing or denying” Him before men. You know yourself, this call for personal assessment and your spirit if alive will bear you witness with the Spirit of God living inside of you.
Today being the last day of this month calls for “Thanksgiving”. You may not recount all what He has done or your main issue or desire was not achieve, in some cases instead of light it seems as if the darkness became darker but I want to encourage you. He is in it with you. Remember that when the cloud becomes darker it pours down rain. When night is at its peak suddenly the dawn is near.
Child of God do not give up. It will soon be over like it never happened. This year of Supernatural Victories is indeed a reality in our life. Come with me and see more reasons why you must praise the Name of the Lord Always according to His Word (1 Thess 5:18)
“I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the Lord, and the praises of the Lord, according to all that the Lord hath bestowed on us.” Isaiah 63:7
And canst thou not do this? Are there no mercies which thou hast experienced? What though thou art gloomy now, canst thou forget that blessed hour when Jesus met thee, and said, “Come unto me”? Canst thou not remember that rapturous moment when He snapped thy fetters, dashed thy chains to the earth, and said, “I came to break thy bonds and set thee free”?
Or if the love of thine espousals be forgotten, there must surely be some precious milestone along the road of life not quite grown over with moss, on which thou canst read a happy memorial of His mercy towards thee? What, didst thou never have a sickness like that which thou art suffering now, and did He not restore thee? Wert thou never poor before, and did He not supply thy wants? Wast thou never in straits before, and did He not deliver thee?
Arise, go to the river of thine experience, and pull up a few bulrushes, and plait them into an ark, wherein thine infant- faith may float safely on the stream. Forget not what thy God has done for thee; turn over the book of thy remembrance, and consider the days of old. Canst thou not remember the hill Mizar? Did the Lord never meet with thee at Hermon? Hast thou never climbed the Delectable Mountains? Hast thou never been helped in time of need?
Nay, I know thou hast. Go back, then, a little way to the choice mercies of yesterday, and though all may be dark now, light up the lamps of the past, they shall glitter through the darkness, and thou shalt trust in the Lord till the day break and the shadows flee away. “Remember, O Lord, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses, for they have been ever of old.”
Yes thou shall trust in the Lord till day break for truly the day must surely break and the shadows flee away and you will be total amazed how God did it.
I want to sincerely appreciate you for keeping date with us all through this month. I also hope that our daily devotionals has been impactful to your life. We thank God on your behalf that you are running the race and keeping the faith so that when He return, we will be able to present you to Him as one whose faith was preserved through grace.
See you next month by the special grace of God and be blessed.
Remain blessed in the Lord
