We are grateful O Lord x2, for all You have done for me alleluia, we are grateful O Lord! // You are a Mighty God, the great I AM, alleluia, alleluia 2x.

Almighty Father, we thank You for the month of May, all goodness and faithfulness towards us Lord. Thank You for Your priceless gifts of live, and health and sounds mind, we cannot Thank You enough. Blessed are You Lord.

Beloveth, are you singing with me “I am grateful O Lord! I don’t need to tell you why you should be grateful to God. God has lead and protected you from the January up until the end of the first quarter of the year with many surprises packages.

Things you never think will be possible, He made it possible, the path you don’t know, He lead you to and through, when you think all is lost, He restore all that you have lost. What a great God we serve, please can you shout unto Him again for He is worthy of our praise.

The month of Grace and Peace through our Lord and Saviour has come and gone but the blessings are here with us. I am greatly blessed, I believe you are also. Another month of great testimony is here and the Lord is up again to bless and honour you among men and sure you are happy.

As we step into a new month, we are glad to announce the mind of God concerning us. God through his servant is declaring to us the theme of the month as received.

Beloved, “welcome to your month of dominion through patience in Lord Jesus (Heb 12:1-3; 6:11-16). Is someone clapping for the One Who made us in His own image? Please sing praises to God, He is worthy.

Beloved, I hope you do agree with me that you and I need a lots of patience to have dominion in life. Some of the things we are going through are not peculiar to us if you check the scripture though satan magnifies it and make it looks so big. In some cases, he exaggerate it that it troubles a simple mind.

Patience can also be view as long- suffering, quiet mind depending on what version of bible. Oftentimes, God bring some things our way to teach us this virtue. Beloved, we need a lot of patience to be all God has made us to be. Sometimes, lack of patience had made so many to either lose opportunity to greater things, witness to someone about Christ, or be Christ Ambassador when the needs arise.

Reading through the bible we will discover that so many saints before us have gone through difficult times, narrowly escape death, some martyred for who (Jesus Christ) they believed in. All these were possible because they learnt to trust God as He develops this virtue in them.

By the grace of God, we will be bring these great saints as the day go by to learn from them. I pray that as we run through this series, this virtue will also be form in you.The interesting thing about God is that it does not matter where He pick you up, He will make you a wonder if only you will believe, trust and surrender yourself to Him.

Today also is our praying day, we are therefore in for wonder double blessing on this first day. Beloved, we are coming to a God Who healeth our disease. Where are you today? Is there any disease you want to be healed? Today, you are dropping it at His feet never to pick it up again.

Jesus knows what to do, why not lay it at His feet right away.

As I said earlier, the saints before us had gone through some challenges at their time but at the end of it, they glorify the Name of the Lord. Come with me as we examine what King David went through and his final triumph.

“The king also himself passed over the brook Kidron.” 2Samuel 15:23

 

David passed that gloomy brook when flying with his mourning company from his traitor son. The man after God’s own heart was not exempt from trouble, nay, his life was full of it. He was both the Lord’s Anointed, and the Lord’s Afflicted. Why then should we expect to escape? At sorrow’s gates the noblest of our race have waited with ashes on their heads, wherefore then should we complain as though some strange thing had happened unto us?

The KING of kings himself was not favoured with a more cheerful or royal road. He passed over the filthy ditch of Kidron, through which the filth of Jerusalem flowed. God had one Son without sin, but not a single child without the rod. It is a great joy to believe that Jesus has been tempted in all points like as we are.

What is our Kidron this morning? Is it a faithless friend, a sad bereavement, a slanderous reproach, a dark foreboding? The King has passed over all these. Is it bodily pain, poverty, persecution, or contempt? Over each of these Kidrons the King has gone before us. “In all our afflictions He was afflicted.” The idea of strangeness in our trials must be banished at once and for ever, for He who is the Head of all saints, knows by experience the grief which we think so peculiar. All the citizens of Zion must be free of the Honourable Company of Mourners, of which the Prince Immanuel is Head and Captain.

Notwithstanding the abasement of David, he yet returned in triumph to his city, and David’s Lord arose victorious from the grave; let us then be of good courage, for we also shall win the day. We shall yet with joy draw water out of the wells of salvation, though now for a season we have to pass by the noxious streams of sin and sorrow. Courage, soldiers of the Cross, the King himself triumphed after going over Kidron, and so shall you.

Amen! Let’s come before our God that healeth all disease:

 

“Who healeth all thy diseases.” Psalm 103:3

                                                                      

Humbling as is the statement, yet the fact is certain, that we are all more or less suffering under the disease of sin. What a comfort to know that we have a great Physician who is both able and willing to heal us! Let us think of Him awhile to-day. His cures are very speedy—there is life in a look at Him; His cures are radical—He strikes at the centre of the disease; and hence, His cures are sure and certain.

He never fails, and the disease never returns. There is no relapse where Christ heals; no fear that His patients should be merely patched up for a season, He makes new men of them: a new heart also does He give them, and a right spirit does He put with them. He is well skilled in all diseases.

Physicians generally have some specialite. Although they may know a little about almost all our pains and ills, there is usually one disease which they have studied above all others; but Jesus Christ is thoroughly acquainted with the whole of human nature. He is as much at home with one sinner as with another, and never yet did He meet with an out-of-the-way case that was difficult to Him.

He has had extraordinary complications of strange diseases to deal with, but He has known exactly with one glance of His eye how to treat the patient. He is the only universal doctor; and the medicine He gives is the only true catholicon, healing in every instance. Whatever our spiritual malady may be, we should apply at once to this Divine Physician.

There is no brokenness of heart which Jesus cannot bind up. “His blood cleanseth from all sin.” We have but to think of the myriads who have been delivered from all sorts of diseases through the power and virtue of His touch, and we shall joyfully put ourselves in His hands.

We trust Him, and sin dies; we love Him, and grace lives; we wait for Him and grace is strengthened; we see Him as he is, and grace is perfected for ever.

Beloved, there is no brokenness of heart which Jesus can not bind up. All you need do is to humbly yourself, allow God to instil this virtue in you. Make sure you stay tight as we take off, our pilot, Jesus have the map, He will drive safely, there will be no mishap.

Once again, you are welcome to Your Month of Dominion through Patience in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
