I just want to be where You are, dwelling in Your Presence daily, I just want to worship with all my heart. Father you are Great and every power belongs to You. My heart pants after You Lord, more than the deer thirst after the waters brooks. We are most grateful for Who You Are, for our sufficiency is in Christ Jesus. Father, we thank You, receive all glory and honour both now and for ever.
Thank You for yester years, we thank for today and we are trusting You for tomorrow O! King of kings. Omnipotent God, immortal and Invisible God, the All Sufficient God, we praise You forever. Father, breath afresh on us and release Your Spirit on us that Your Power will come down mighty in our lives and turn us around in the Name of Jesus Name Amen.
The Mighty One of Israel announced to us of His Ever Presence and His guidance all through the month and beyond more than ever before. It is wonderful to have my Father promising us that He is with us all through the month to guide us in all that we do and say.
Beloved, ever experienced this Awesome presence of God around you, maybe when you fellowshipping with other brethren or you are all alone worshipping. The scene is unexplainable. Little wonder while Moses exclaimed, “Lord I go no further without Your presence. And when the Disciple got a glimpse of it they decided to stay at the mountain top forever but for the rebuke of Jesus because of the exigency of time.
The Psalmist was not left out, for he knew that Divine Guidance guarantees Divine Presence. O! is somebody excited as I am? “Without me you can do nothing”. It guarantees hearing from God; it also guarantees being an oracle for Him for what you hear or see same you speak. Come on for more discovery:
“Thou shalt guide me with Thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.” Psalm 73:24
The Psalmist felt his need of divine guidance. He had just been discovering the foolishness of his own heart, and lest he should be constantly led astray by it, he resolved that God’s counsel should henceforth guide him. A sense of our own folly is a great step towards being wise, when it leads us to rely on the wisdom of the Lord. The blind man leans on his friend’s arm and reaches home in safety, and so would we give ourselves up implicitly to divine guidance, nothing doubting; assured that though we cannot see, it is always safe to trust the All-seeing God.
“Thou shalt,” is a blessed expression of confidence. He was sure that the Lord would not decline the condescending task. There is a word for thee, O believer; rest thou in it. Be assured that thy God will be thy counsellor and friend; He shall guide thee; He will direct all thy ways. In His written Word thou hast this assurance in part fulfilled, for holy Scripture is His counsel to thee.
Happy are we to have God’s Word always to guide us! What were the mariner without his compass? And what were the Christian without the Bible? This is the unerring chart, the map in which every shoal is described, and all the channels from the quicksands of destruction to the haven of salvation mapped and marked by one who knows all the way. Blessed be Thou, O God, that we may trust Thee to guide us now, and guide us even to the end!
After this guidance through life, the Psalmist anticipates a divine reception at last—”and afterward receive me to glory.” What a thought for thee, believer! God Himself will receive thee to glory—thee! Wandering, erring, straying, yet He will bring thee safe at last to glory! This is thy portion; live on it this day, and if perplexities should surround thee, go in the strength of this text straight to the throne.
Someone is yet to recover from this great magnitude of love bestowed upon us by The All Knowing God; the Great I Am. A little flash back will help us a great deal, the Lord granted us “Dominion” in the month of August; In September He guaranteed us “Resounding Victory” and now My Father said He will ensure your goings by leading you. He is saying that He will lead and you will follow. Are you believing God to do the leading from today while you do the following?
You have not move forward because you refuse to believe God with a simple faith. You are want to reason Him out with your head other than believing Him in His Word with your heart. Will you come before Him now just as you are and accept what He say He will do and you shall never be the same again:
“Trust in Him at all times.” Psalm 62:8
Faith is as much the rule of temporal as of spiritual life; we ought to have faith in God for our earthly affairs as well as for our heavenly business. It is only as we learn to trust in God for the supply of all our daily need that we shall live above the world. We are not to be idle, that would show we did not trust in God, who worketh hitherto, but in the devil, who is the father of idleness.
We are not to be imprudent or rash; that were to trust chance, and not the living God, who is a God of economy and order. Acting in all prudence and uprightness, we are to rely simply and entirely upon the Lord at all times.
Let me commend to you a life of trust in God in temporal things. Trusting in God, you will not be compelled to mourn because you have used sinful means to grow rich. Serve God with integrity, and if you achieve no success, at least no sin will lie upon your conscience. Trusting God, you will not be guilty of self-contradiction. He who trusts in craft, sails this way today, and that way the next, like a vessel tossed about by the fickle wind; but he that trusteth in the Lord is like a vessel propelled by steam, she cuts through the waves, defies the wind, and makes one bright silvery straightforward track to her destined haven.
Be you a man with living principles within; never bow to the varying customs of worldly wisdom. Walk in your path of integrity with steadfast steps, and show that you are invincibly strong in the strength which confidence in God alone can confer. Thus you will be delivered from carking care, you will not be troubled with evil tidings, your heart will be fixed, trusting in the Lord. How pleasant to float along the stream of providence! There is no more blessed way of living than a life of dependence upon a covenant-keeping God (Ps 25:14).
We have no care, for He careth for us; we have no troubles, because we cast our burdens upon the Lord.
Beloved, hasten to Your Maker this day and confess where you have failed in faithfulness, ask for the grace to move on, then TRUST Him that it is done. Without faith it is impossible to please Him. Then will your light shines forth, He will lead you besides the still water for He is your Shepherd and you shall not want. Glory be to God on High.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
