Heavenly Father with a grateful heart we come to Your Throne, to worship and adore Thee, the Only Wise God. Thank You for the gift of last week, we are thanking You for counting us worthy to be part of this week, we believe You that we will see the end in the Name of Jesus.
Beloveth, hope your weekend was good? Were You able to make to service yesterday? In case you did not, I encourage you to make your Sunday worship time a top priority. Very important. Go and take authority over the week so that you will not be overwhelm with the turnout of events as the day go by. Learn to be in-charge spiritual and otherwise.
When you know who is in- charge, panic will be far from You. Even if events are not turning out the way desired you will still know what to do. Those in production line will understand better what I am saying here.
Beloveth, our topic today says ‘the people that do know their God shall be strong.’ Beloveth, do you know your God? Do You know what God is saying concerning a matter either in your life as an individual, a family, church, community, as nation.
If you are in the know, it will be very easy for you to be strong and do exploits for the Lord.
Exploits are no mean jobs. It is not for the faint-hearted neither is for weakling in faith. It is for those who knows their God. Is not for those who are physically strong. It is for those who knows how to depend on God for the task ahead. Is not for professors but for those who depend on God in all circumstances that He knows what to do.
Beloved the exploits we are considering here does depend on the rich or economy of any nation for its accomplishment, but it depends on the wisdom of God. This exploits does not depend on any set of individuals but God qualifies those who are available and are willing to do His biddings.
Do you fall into any of the categories mention above? This list in exhaustible. We can go on and on.
Be encouraged this morning , this is the first working day of this week, be strong in the knowledge of Who Your Father is and You will see of the truth that everything work together for good for them that love God.
Be bless as you read through the teaching of today:
“The people that do know their God shall be strong.” Daniel 11:32
Every believer understands that to know God is the highest and best form of knowledge; and this spiritual knowledge is a source of strength to the Christian. It strengthens his faith. Believers are constantly spoken of in the Scriptures as being persons who are enlightened and taught of the Lord; they are said to “have an unction from the Holy One,” and it is the Spirit’s peculiar office to lead them into all truth, and all this for the increase and the fostering of their faith.
Knowledge strengthens love, as well as faith. Knowledge opens the door, and then through that door we see our Saviour. Or, to use another similitude, knowledge paints the portrait of Jesus, and when we see that portrait then we love Him, we cannot love a Christ whom we do not know, at least, in some degree.
If we know but little of the excellences of Jesus, what He has done for us, and what He is doing now, we cannot love Him much; but the more we know Him, the more we shall love Him.
Knowledge also strengthens hope. How can we hope for a thing if we do not know of its existence? Hope may be the telescope, but till we receive instruction, our ignorance stands in the front of the glass, and we can see nothing whatever; knowledge removes the interposing object, and when we look through the bright optic glass we discern the glory to be revealed, and anticipate it with joyous confidence.
Knowledge supplies us reasons for patience. How shall we have patience unless we know something of the sympathy of Christ, and understand the good which is to come out of the correction which our heavenly Father sends us? Nor is there one single grace of the Christian which, under God, will not be fostered and brought to perfection by holy knowledge.
How important, then, is it that we should grow not only in grace, but in the “knowledge” of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Beloved, this knowledge helps us to know that everything God allowed in our lives will work out for good and to remain positive about God loves, His goodness and doubt not nor murmur:
“We know that all things work together for good to them that love God.” Romans 8:28
Upon some points a believer is absolutely sure. He knows, for instance, that God sits in the stern-sheets of the vessel when it rocks most. He believes that an invisible hand is always on the world’s tiller, and that wherever providence may drift, Jehovah steers it. That re-assuring knowledge prepares him for everything. He looks over the raging waters and sees the spirit of Jesus treading the billows, and he hears a voice saying, “It is I, be not afraid.”
He knows too that God is always wise, and, knowing this, he is confident that there can be no accidents, no mistakes; that nothing can occur which ought not to arise. He can say, “If I should lose all I have, it is better that I should lose than have, if God so wills: the worst calamity is the wisest and the kindest thing that could befall to me if God ordains it.”
“We know that all things work together for good to them that love God.” The Christian does not merely hold this as a theory, but he knows it as a matter of fact. Everything has worked for good as yet; the poisonous drugs mixed in fit proportions have worked the cure; the sharp cuts of the lancet have cleansed out the proud flesh and facilitated the healing.
Every event as yet has worked out the most divinely blessed results; and so, believing that God rules all, that He governs wisely, that He brings good out of evil, the believer’s heart is assured, and he is enabled calmly to meet each trial as it comes.
The believer can in the spirit of true resignation pray, “Send me what thou wilt, my God, so long as it comes from Thee; never came there an ill portion from Thy table to any of Thy children.”
“Say not my soul, ‘From whence can God relieve my care?
Remember that Omnipotence has servants everywhere.
His method is sublime, His heart profoundly kind,
God never is before His time, and never is behind.'”
There is no ill portion from the Lord. He is a strong tower where runs into and are secured. Beloveth let that be thy comfort as you work through this week. You will be strong and do exploits for the Lord. Everything pertaining you, the Lord will worketh it out for your good in Jesus Name. The Lord will keep you and honour you all these of your life in Jesus Name.
This week is declared blessed in the Name of the Father, of the son and of the Holy Spirit Amen!
Beloved, for the remaining days of this month, we will be adding Ps 23: 6 at the end of every ministration. I want to see God’s Goodness in every reader’s life. As we confess with our mouth, so shall it be unto us in Jesus Name.
‘Surely God’s goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives and we shall dwell in the presence of God’s of the Lord forever, Amen!’
Remain blessed in the Lord.
