Every living soul, every living soul praise the Lord 2x are You a living soul? I am a living soul I will praise the Lord. Every living soul, every living soul praise the Lord.// 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 wonders alleluia!
Glorious Father, we come before You who created the whole world and all that is within it. Glory be to You Father. Thank God for being God indeed to us, there is none like Thee. Let everything You made bow before the Throne in the Name of Jesus. Thank You Father, Thank You Lord.
Precious Redeemer, we come before You Father, have Your way in my life today, help me to serve You all the days of my live, Lord help the saints we pray Thee that Your Name alone will be glorify in Jesus Name.
We cannot help ourselves without You, we are nothing outside Your power and strength, therefore Lord help us to stand firm where You have position us. Help us not to fail You. Help us not disappoint You but to stand firm where You have positioned us in Jesus Name.
Brethren, is that also Your heart desire this moment, to be where God has assigned You to do exploits for Him. Blessed Redeemer, the world is full with evil but we trust in You, preserve us we pray Thee in Jesus Name.
We are to stand in rank as our second message will be speaking to us later. We must not thrust one another rather we must walk in our path. Unfortunately that is not what is happening in our world today.
There is a lots going on in the world around us, jostling of position and powers. This evil cancer is moving from the seculars to the church of God and more pitiable to the families. There are things that is not worth mentioning among us brethren.
We are also by the teaching of today learn to take care of those who are weak in faith among us. We must a matter of necessity care for them. Sometimes they put up a wall around themselves so that it will not be very easy to reach them. Sometimes they pick up quarrels in simple matter just to have a defense around themselves.
Beloved, the Spirit of God made me realize recently that is all entice of the devil to lure them away from the caring brethren and lead them to the wilderness of loneliness and get them destroyed. So watch out for those lagging behind in faith, in duties. Get to them first before the enemy takes over completely. Remember a little acts of ‘kindness’ the Lord is demanding from you.
Let go into the teaching of the day:
“They shall go hindmost with their standards.” Numbers 2:31
The camp of Dan brought up the rear when the armies of Israel were on the march. The Danites occupied the hindmost place, but what mattered the position, since they were as truly part of the host as were the foremost tribes; they followed the same fiery cloudy pillar, they ate of the same manna, drank of the same spiritual rock, and journeyed to the same inheritance.
Come, my heart, cheer up, though last and least; it is thy privilege to be in the army, and to fare as they fare who lead the van. Some one must be hindmost in honour and esteem, some one must do menial work for Jesus, and why should not I? In a poor village, among an ignorant peasantry; or in a back street, among degraded sinners, I will work on, and “go hindmost with my standard.”
The Danites occupied a very useful place. Stragglers have to be picked up upon the march, and lost property has to be gathered from the field. Fiery spirits may dash forward over untrodden paths to learn fresh truth, and win more souls to Jesus; but some of a more conservative spirit may be well engaged in reminding the church of her ancient faith, and restoring her fainting sons. Every position has its duties, and the slowly moving children of God will find their peculiar state one in which they may be eminently a blessing to the whole host.
The rear guard is a place of danger. There are foes behind us as well as before us. Attacks may come from any quarter. We read that Amalek fell upon Israel, and slew some of the hindmost of them. The experienced Christian will find much work for his weapons in aiding those poor doubting, desponding, wavering, souls, who are hindmost in faith, knowledge, and joy. These must not be left unaided, and therefore be it the business of well-taught saints to bear their standards among the hindmost. My soul, do thou tenderly watch to help the hindmost this day.
Let us also learn to be where God has appointed us to be per time. It is unfortunate what is going on in our world today. Of more concern is that it is happening in the household of God. Is astonishing what the brethren are doing against one another. My prayer for a user of this devotional is to stand firm and keep your rank at home, office, ministry and church, that you will not be found wanting at your duty post in Jesus Name:
“Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path.” Joel 2:8
Locusts always keep their rank, and although their number is legion, they do not crowd upon each other, so as to throw their columns into confusion. This remarkable fact in natural history shows how thoroughly the a Lord has infused the spirit of order into His universe, since the smallest animate creatures are as much controlled by it as are the rolling spheres or the seraphic messengers.
It would be wise for believers to be ruled by the same influence in all their spiritual life. In their Christian graces no one virtue should usurp the sphere of another, or eat out the vitals of the rest for its own support. Affection must not smother honesty, courage must not elbow weakness out of the field, modesty must not jostle energy, and patience must not slaughter resolution.
So also with our duties, one must not interfere with another; public usefulness must not injure private piety; church work must not push family worship into a corner. It is ill to offer God one duty stained with the blood of another. Each thing is beautiful in its season, but not otherwise. It was to the Pharisee that Jesus said, “This ought ye to have done, and not to have left the other undone.” The same rule applies to our personal position, we must take care to know our place, take it, and keep to it.
We must minister as the Spirit has given us ability, and not intrude upon our fellow servant’s domain. Our Lord Jesus taught us not to covet the high places, but to be willing to be the least among the brethren. Far from us be an envious, ambitious spirit, let us feel the force of the Master’s command, and do as He bids us, keeping rank with the rest of the host.
To-night let us see whether we are keeping the unity of the Spirit in the bonds of peace, and let our prayer be that, in all the churches of the Lord Jesus, peace and order may prevail.
We must not offer to God a duty stain with the blood of another. Brethren you may be acting in good faith but be very careful that you are not offering to God a duty stained with the blood of another. Because it will not be pleasing to Him. God give us grace not to be weary in well doings in Jesus Name (Gal 6:9).
So look into your life and make the necessary amend. May the Spirit of God helps you as you are willing to obey in Jesus Name.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
