Jesus, Jesus, Jesus You are Lord of my life 2x O God You are the Lord of my life 2x. It is raining all over me, I can feel it the latter rain, ride on Jesus give us more rain until we are soak; until we are wet with latter rain.

Gracious God, we Thank You for another opportunity in the land of the living to showcase Your goodness in our lives again. Thank You for waking us up this morning to the glory of the Name. We remain grateful to You alone and we come to say Thank You.

O Lord who is like unto Thee, Faithful Father, there is none like Thee. Eternal Rocks of Ages, hollow be Thy Name forever.

Beloved, good morning to you from the Throne of grace, hope you are doing good? Great is our God, whose thought towards us are good not evil. His plan is to give us our expected end.  Beloved, I don’t know what you are believing God for, but He has promised to grant it unto you. Does that gladdens your heart? Wow! Am so excited we are serving a God that knows what we need before it becomes a need. Isn’t that wonderful. It did not stop there, He also provide for it before we call on Him and ask for it (Matt 6:31-34).

Truly, our God is Awesome. Too Wonderful to behold His glory. Our God is Magnificent, His Splendor is a wow! Our Father in heaven we reverence You for You are Great. Thank You for being our Father.(Ps 37:25)

Beloved, there is call for watchmen, the watchman at night. It is easy to get watchmen for morning and day but worrisome when it comes for night. Why is it difficult to recruit men for night watch? Those who are engaged as night watchers are they doing the watch? Are they faithful at their post?

We must be diligent in our watch else we will be cut in the spider web of our enemy the devil.

Shun prayerlessness, shun laxity, away with slothfulness O my soul get down on your knees and pray. Pray until something happens. Pray until you receive your expected end, pray until you get heaven’s attention (Lk 8:23-26).

Watchman, do not neglect the night watch, it is as important as the day. At those dreadful moments when our faith is being tried, may You keep and preserve us from the devices and schemes of the evil ones, O Lord my God hear us as we pray:

 

“Watchman, what of the night?” Isaiah 21:11

What enemies are abroad? Errors are a numerous horde, and new ones appear every hour: against what heresy am I to be on my guard? Sins creep from their lurking places when the darkness reigns; I must myself mount the watch-tower, and watch unto prayer. Our heavenly Protector foresees all the attacks which are about to be made upon us, and when as yet the evil designed us is but in the desire of Satan, He prays for us that our faith fail not, when we are sifted as wheat. Continue O gracious Watchman, to forewarn us of our foes, and for Zion’s sake hold not thy peace.

“Watchman, what of the night?” What weather is coming for the Church? Are the clouds lowering, or is it all clear and fair overhead? We must care for the Church of God with anxious love; and now that Popery and infidelity are both threatening, let us observe the signs of the times and prepare for conflict.

“Watchman, what of the night?” What stars are visible? What precious promises suit our present case? You sound the alarm, give us the consolation also. Christ, the polestar, is ever fixed in His place, and all the stars are secure in the right hand of their Lord.

But watchman, when comes the morning? The Bridegroom tarries. Are there no signs of His coming forth as the Sun of Righteousness? Has not the morning star arisen as the pledge of day? When will the day dawn, and the shadows flee away? O Jesus, if Thou come not in person to Thy waiting Church this day, yet come in Spirit to my sighing heart, and make it sing for joy.

“Now all the earth is bright and glad

With the fresh morn;

But all my heart is cold, and dark and sad:

Sun of the soul, let me behold Thy dawn!

Come, Jesus, Lord,

O quickly come, according to Thy word.”

According to Your Word come quickly to us, when we can no longer help ourselves, those moments we are helpless and know that it is only You Lord that can do it. Father, help our souls we pray Thee in Jesus Name.

Beloved, the clarion call is still on, this time is a call to pray for all the nations of the world. We are not to be at ease in Zion. If all the members of our household are saved, brethren pray for the conversion of your siblings and their entire household. Pray for your colleagues at work and neighbours at home and business environment, pray for the whole world, pray that they should come to the Saving grace of God.

“Let the whole earth be filled with His glory; Amen, and Amen.” Psalm 72:19

This is a large petition. To intercede for a whole city needs a stretch of faith, and there are times when a prayer for one man is enough to stagger us. But how far-reaching was the psalmist’s dying intercession!

How comprehensive! How sublime! “Let the whole earth be filled with His glory.” It doth not exempt a single country however crushed by the foot of superstition; it doth not exclude a single nation however barbarous. For the cannibal as well as for the civilized, for all climes and races this prayer is uttered: the whole circle of the earth it encompasses, and omits no son of Adam.

We must be up and doing for our Master, or we cannot honestly offer such a prayer. The petition is not asked with a sincere heart unless we endeavour, as God shall help us, to extend the kingdom of our Master. Are there not some who neglect both to plead and to labour?

Reader, is it your prayer? Turn your eyes to Calvary. Behold the Lord of Life nailed to a cross, with the thorn-crown about His brow, with bleeding head, and hands, and feet. What! can you look upon this miracle of miracles, the death of the Son of God, without feeling within your bosom a marvellous adoration that language never can express?

And when you feel the blood applied to your conscience, and know that He has blotted out your sins, you are not a man unless you start from your knees and cry, “Let the whole earth be filled with His glory; Amen, and Amen.” Can you bow before the Crucified in loving homage, and not wish to see your Monarch master of the world?

Out on you if you can pretend to love your Prince, and desire not to see Him the universal ruler. Your piety is worthless unless it leads you to wish that the same mercy which has been extended to you may bless the whole world. Lord, it is harvest-time, put in Thy sickle and reap.

Yes, it is the harvest time, beloved put out your sickle and reap. Reap them in through prayers, reap them in through evangelism, reap them in through good deeds and the Lord will bless you. He will reward you handsomely (Heb 4:16)

Before the end of the month have a standing soul to present to the Lord as a harvest.

May the Lord answer your prayer as you stand watch not only by day but also by night. May your sickle be full as you reap in souls from the vineyard in Jesus Name. So that the whole earth will be filled with His glory and shout Amen! Amen!!

Remember Jesus went to the cross to die and save sinners, now go and bring them into the barn – church of God.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
