I will lift up my voice, I will joyful sing not what You have done but for who You are, You are the song that I sing melody in my heart, the reason I live is to praise You Lord.// Take glory Father, Take glory Son, Take glory Holy Spirit now and forever more.

Heavenly Father we Thank You again today for who You are. You are Ever Faithful, Forever Dependable, Ever Reliable, Unchangeable Changer, Immortal, Invisible, You are the Only Wise God. Thank You Lord. Receive all the praises we offer in Jesus Name.

Beloveth, how are you doing? Hope you maximized the teaching of yesterday which was encouraging us always to pray and not to faint? May God strengthen from above in Jesus Name. May He help us to discern between evil and good and focus on that which is really important in Jesus Name.

Beloveth, do you know the Person of Jesus aside that He is the Son of God, the second Person in Trinity or Triune God? The bible gave us another intro to the Person of Christ- “Jesus is the way, the Truth and the Life”- Jn 14:6. Are you excited about that?

I have realize some striking things in some people’s lives, one among many is that they are never happy or excited about anything that is happening outside their person. If it is not them, why should they be happy or excited about it? I believe you are not among such persons.

Is something exciting to me to know that the One am following is ‘the Way and also the Truth.’ It means I am on the right path, going to heaven. It means that after I have spent my life here on earth and my work is reviewed it will not burn up having worked with gold, silver, and costly stones other than wood, hay and straws (1 Cor 3:12-15).

Beloved, who are you following? Another discovered I also have is that though they are professing Christ, their leaders point them to their selves other than to Christ. They things said according to their leaders other than the according to the word of God. If You are a leader and discover this among Your congregation please correct this erroneous assumption before God will judge You (Acts 12:21-23)It so important to know who and what you are professing.

Also know that in Jesus no guile is found, neither deceit nor lies. Are you living the exemplary life of Jesus? In Jesus, everything points to His Father, he hardly said anything of His own accord. He also do not practice fellow my teaching and not my person as we see these day among brethren and the leaders.

Do you want to know the truth about your situation, family, business and career then follow me as we come to Jesus the Person of truth to discover all and put them in perspective:

They came and woke Him up, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to die!” Then He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waves. So they ceased, and there was a calm. He said to them, “Where is your faith?”They were fearful and amazed, asking one another, “Who can this be? He commands even the winds and the waves, and they obey Him!”—Luke 8:24–25

Truth is a Person, not a concept. Jesus said He was the Truth (John 14:6). That means that you can never know the truth of your circumstances unless you have first heard from Jesus. The disciples thought they were perishing in the storm. They were fishermen who knew the sea and knew what their condition was. They had allowed their circumstances to convince them that the “truth” was their imminent death. But they were wrong. Truth was asleep in the back of their boat!

Since some of the disciples were fishermen, they trusted in their own expertise and wisdom rather than recognizing that only Jesus knew the truth of their situation. At times, our human knowledge in certain areas of life can blind us to our desperate need to hear a word from Truth.

When Jesus spoke, the disciples saw the real truth of their situation. There was absolute calm. The disciples had seen Jesus perform other miracles, but they had not yet witnessed His power over nature in such a dimension. Often we are like the disciples.

God may have recently demonstrated His power to us in a mighty way; we may have experienced many spiritual victories in the past. Yet, when a new and frightening situation comes upon us we, too, panic and say, “Lord save me. I’m perishing!” God will remind us of His provision, saying, “I can handle this situation, too, and you will know more of Me because of it.”

Have you become fearful instead of faithful? If you have, prepare for the rebuke, for it will come.

Beloved, did you read that? Often times, we think our end has come because of a devastating situation that crop up along our path, won’t it be rather great if we instead of shrinking back, running away, giving up, throw in the towel look steadily on that situation and declare the Lordship of our Lord Jesus Christ over it and ask it to “try you” (Heb 11:1).

Fear in the place of faith slow us down in some cases makes us immobile but I want to come with me to the next message to see how God handles every situation that arises in the life of every of His child, more discovery:

“For there stood by me this night the angel of God.” Acts 27:23

Tempest and long darkness, coupled with imminent risk of shipwreck, had brought the crew of the vessel into a sad case; one man alone among them remained perfectly calm, and by his word the rest were reassured. Paul was the only man who had heart enough to say, “Sirs, be of good cheer.” There were veteran Roman legionaries on board, and brave old mariners, and yet their poor Jewish prisoner had more spirit than they all. He had a secret Friend who kept his courage up.

The Lord Jesus despatched a heavenly messenger to whisper words of consolation in the ear of His faithful servant, therefore he wore a shining countenance and spake like a man at ease.

If we fear the Lord, we may look for timely interpositions when our case is at its worst. Angels are not kept from us by storms, or hindered by darkness. Seraphs think it no humiliation to visit the poorest of the heavenly family.

If angel’s visits are few and far between at ordinary times, they shall be frequent in our nights of tempest and tossing. Friends may drop from us when we are under pressure, but our intercourse with the inhabitants of the angelic world shall be more abundant; and in the strength of love-words, brought to us from the throne by the way of Jacob’s ladder, we shall be strong to do exploits.

Dear reader, is this an hour of distress with you? then ask for peculiar help. Jesus is the angel of the covenant, and if His presence be now earnestly sought, it will not be denied. What that presence brings in heart-cheer those remember who, like Paul, have had the angel of God standing by them in a night of storm, when anchors would no longer hold, and rocks were nigh.

“O angel of my God, be near,

Amid the darkness hush my fear;

Loud roars the wild tempestuous sea,

Thy presence, Lord, shall comfort me.” 

Beloved, the Lord giveth song in the night, I am a living testimony. I don’t know where you are in your walk with God but what I know is that He will never leave you nor forsake thee, He will always be by your side to encourage and comfort you. (Ps 9:18; Gal.3:26, 4:25)

Though everything might be changing, friends and families may took to their heels in the hour of your great tribulations, know this and always bear it in mind- Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Hold on to Jesus, He is the truth of your situation, not what the devil is whispering to your Spirit and be yea thankful and rejoice ever more (2Tim 1:12; Col 3:15, 1 Thess 5:16).

Remain blessed in the Lord.
