I am so glad I belong Jesus, I belong to Jesus, I belong to my God… I am so glad I belong Jesus, I belong to Jesus, I belong to my God// Glorious God, Beautiful, Excellent God we bow before the throne o Lord… Glorious God, Beautiful, Excellent God we bow before the throne o Lord…

My Father my Father my Father, You are glorious ooo, You are Glorious ooo, You are Glorious ooo, You are Glorious ooo…. You are Wonderful ooo, You are Wonderful ooo, You are Wonderful ooo, You are Wonderful ooo, You are Wonderful!!!

Yes Father You are incomprehensible…. No one can be explicit about Who You are because You have not give man or angel the revelation of Your totality but You reveal Yourself to man in parts…. So that no man can boost or lift up his heels against You… What a wonder You are Lord. If satan knew that the death of Jesus Christ on the Cross is a mean to an end of his terror among men , he would have preserved Him or than have a path in His death but that revelation was only made know the righteous even before He was born and also at His birth (Isa 9:2-7, Lk 2:25-38).

So the deep things of God were revealed to those that fears the Lord whose heart are steadily on Him. is that who you are? Can heaven testify of your faithfulness to kingdom business and righteousness? Make sure that the Trinity bears you witness that you are truly God’s own not only you but also everyone and everything He entrusted into your care… Praise the Lord.

Beloveth, this week was power packed and am sure you are blessed. Thanks be to God Who released His Spirit among us to teach us deep things about Him. our God is good…all the time… Praise God!

Today is our PCL- in case you don’t know what it stands for – it is Practical Christian Living… is an avenue we put into practice what the Spirit of God is teaching us in our daily living… our brother Paul  said “Not that I have already obtained, or am already made perfect: but I press on, if so be that I may lay hold on that for which also I was laid hold on by Christ Jesus…(Phil 3:12-14).

In Phil 2:14 he said, “Do all things without murmuring and questionings: that ye may become blameless and harmless, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom ye are seen as lights in the world, holding forth the Word of life; that I may have whereof to glory in the day of Christ, that I did not run in vain neither labour in vain…

More so, we will join brother Paul  to say “ I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I that live, but Christ lives in me: and that life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith which is in the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself up for me. I do not make void the grace of God; for if righteousness is through the law, then Christ died for nought (Gal 2:20-21).

Beloveth, that why this session is as important as what Prov 4:23-27 said “keep Thy heart with all diligence; For out of it are the issues of life… put away from Thee a wayward mouth, And perverse lips put far from Thee. Let thine eyes look right on, ….make level the path of Thy feet…turn not the right nor to the left: Remove thy foot from evil..”

This is possible in this ministry through the teaching we have in the PCL… for we must not only be readers or hearers of the Word but also doers of the same…Praise the Lord!

In our teaching today, we are in for another powerful revelation that we must arm ourselves with as children of God… warfare…or Discipline?

Wondering what you are passing through? Your search has come to an end as today’s teaching will open your eyes once again to the revelation knowledge of God concerning you…

For the Lord disciplines the one He loves, and punishes every son whom He receives.Hebrews 12:6

There is a tendency among Christians to view anything unpleasant that happens to them as the result of “spiritual warfare.” When a difficulty arises, many immediately ask God to remove their distress. The problem is that their predicament may have nothing to do with Satan or with spiritual warfare. It may appear far more glorious for us to explain our hardships as Satan’s determined attacks against us, rather than admitting that we are merely reaping what we have sown and are being disciplined by our heavenly Father (Gal. 6:7).

What is often mistaken as Satan’s attack may actually be chastisement from our loving Father. If you have neglected your role as spiritual teacher to your children, God may allow them to fall into sin. If you have been dishonest at work, God may correct you by letting you face the consequences. It would be foolish to pray that God would ease your discomfort.

God is disciplining you in order to gain your attention and bring necessary change to your life. How tragic never to make the connection between your problems and God’s discipline. God’s discipline will not help you if you dismiss it as Satan’s doing or spiritual warfare. Not every hardship you face is the chastisement of God, but Scripture indicates that God will discipline you.

If you misunderstand God’s chastening, you may actually blame Him for not answering your prayers or failing to protect you from Satan. Meanwhile, God is warning you of the danger you face because of your sin.

Are there difficult circumstances in your life? Could it be the discipline of God? God, whose nature is perfect love, will correct you because He has your ultimate good in His heart.

Beloveth did read that “God’s correction in your life is for your ultimate good because He has your ultimate good in His heart…? Jer 29:11-14.

Beloveth, let us endeavour to live right to avoid the disciplines of God upon our lives which we may mistake as warfare… may God help you dearly beloveth to honour God in both your life and service to mankind in Jesus Name… we conclude with the very Word of Jesus in the Lk 6:21b- is better you weep now so that you will laugh later…let the Hand direct your affairs now and put you in the path of righteousness so that you will rejoice forever more Amen!

Let us ask God to make His revelation package available to us as we journey through year 2022 so that the theme of this year will not be hindered by us but will come to pass according to His Word to us in Jesus Name.

Have a rewarding weekend and may the grace of God abound in your life to live right in Jesus Name Amen.…

See you on Monday again if Jesus tarries…

Remain blessed in the Lord.
