I prayed! and I Prayed!

Lord Jesus answered me!

I prayed o! I prayed oo!

I prayed! and Prayed!

Lord Jesus answered me!

It is well with my soul!

 

Blessed Redeemer, You are the Am that I Am, Internal Rock of Ages, Who is like unto Thee, there is none to be compared with Thee. Praise be to Thy Holy Name. You are indeed God; none to be comparable with You; we reverence Thee, we adored Thee forever more. Amen! Thank You for answering my call; You are a miracle working God. (Beloved, hope you are enjoying and discovering things for yourself every Wednesday in our special edition on “prayer”. Don’t miss it but in case you do, visit the website and click on prayer in the categorization section, it will do you a lot of good and you will learn more on how to pray, hindrances to prayer, and solutions how to get your prayer answered). Remember pray without ceasing (1Thess 5:17)

Am most grateful to God, for all He has done and yet to do in my life, situation, family, and in the ministry, what about you? God has the capacity to do more than you can ever imagine but what happens in most cases is that, we don’t understand the capacity or ability of “Whom” we call “Father”.

Like the brother of the prodigal son, we don’t know that all that belongs to our Father belongs to us; we can draw from it but instead we complain, we murmur and struggle while freedom and wealth is our birthright. Come with me this morning to discover the unsearchable riches belonging to our Lord Jesus Christ that you can tap into going forward!

Someone is already shouting, praise the Lord! You are blessed and you remain blessed all the days of your life, Amen!

“The unsearchable riches of Christ.” Ephesians 3:8

My Master has riches beyond the count of arithmetic, the measurement of reason, the dream of imagination, or the eloquence of words. They are unsearchable! You may look, and study, and weigh, but Jesus is a greater Saviour than you think Him to be when your thoughts are at the greatest.

My Lord is more ready to pardon than you to sin, more able to forgive than you to transgress. My Master is more willing to supply your wants than you are to confess them. Never tolerate low thoughts of my Lord Jesus. When you put the crown on His head, you will only crown Him with silver when He deserves gold.

My Master has riches of happiness to bestow upon you now. He can make you to lie down in green pastures, and lead you beside still waters. There is no music like the music of His pipe, when He is the Shepherd and you are the sheep, and you lie down at His feet. There is no love like His, neither earth nor heaven can match it. To know Christ and to be found in Him—oh! this is life, this is joy, this is marrow and fatness, wine on the lees well refined. My Master does not treat His servants churlishly; He gives to them as a king giveth to a king; He gives them two heavens—a heaven below in serving Him here, and a heaven above in delighting in Him for ever.

His unsearchable riches will be best known in eternity. He will give you on the way to heaven all you need; your place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks, your bread shall be given you, and your waters shall be sure; but it is there, THERE, where you shall hear the song of them that triumph, the shout of them that feast, and shall have a face-to-face view of the glorious and beloved One.

The unsearchable riches of Christ! This is the tune for the minstrels of earth, and the song for the harpers of heaven. Lord, teach us more and more of Jesus, and we will tell out the good news to others.

Are you saying that with me today? If you are, come along with me as we walk this sacred path, do you notice that all your foes are gone, that the breaker is come? More below:

“The breaker is come up before them.” Micah 2:13

Inasmuch as Jesus has gone before us, things remain not as they would have been had He never passed that way. He has conquered every foe that obstructed the way. Cheer up now thou faint-hearted warrior. Not only has Christ travelled the road, but He has slain thine enemies.

Dost thou dread sin? He has nailed it to His cross. Dost thou fear death? He has been the death of Death. Art thou afraid of hell? He has barred it against the advent of any of His children; they shall never see the gulf of perdition.

Whatever foes may be before the Christian, they are all overcome. There are lions, but their teeth are broken; there are serpents, but their fangs are extracted; there are rivers, but they are bridged or fordable; there are flames, but we wear that matchless garment which renders us invulnerable to fire. The sword that has been forged against us is already blunted; the instruments of war which the enemy is preparing have already lost their point.

God has taken away in the person of Christ all the power that anything can have to hurt us. Well then, the army may safely march on, and you may go joyously along your journey, for all your enemies are conquered beforehand. What shall you do but march on to take the prey? They are beaten, they are vanquished; all you have to do is to divide the spoil.

You shall, it is true, often engage in combat; but your fight shall be with a vanquished foe. His head is broken; he may attempt to injure you, but his strength shall not be sufficient for his malicious design. Your victory shall be easy, and your treasure shall be beyond all count.

Is someone claiming that already? And so shall it be, Amen! Sing along with me as you march through the day

“Proclaim aloud the Saviour’s fame,

Who bears the Breaker’s wond’rous name;

Sweet name; and it becomes him well,

Who breaks down earth, sin, death, and hell.”

 

Remain blessed in the Lord.
