The joy of the Lord is my strength, the joy of the Lord is my strength. The joy of the Lord is my strength. The joy of the Lord is my strength. Jesus gives me living water and I taste no more. He gives me living water and taste no more. Jesus gives me Living water and taste no more, the joy of the Lord is my strength.// I have decided to follow Jesus, I have decided to follow Jesus. I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back, no going back. No turning back; No going back.

Yes! Father, no turning back; no going back. O! Lord, we thank You, we bless Your Holy Name. We praise You for Who You, You are Mighty and Great, thank You for the gift of a new month. The month full with goodness and mercies order to follow us as the each day go by, thank You Lord.

Faithful God we hand over this month into your Hand that You watch over it. Come again in Your glory and kindness and do that which no one can for us. Arise again in Your Majesty and be God indeed unto us.

Beloveth, is that also your heartfelt prayer in this new month? Praise the Lord for the new month is here again. Can someone give a benefiting shout of alleluia to the King of Kings? Faithfully is our God. Last month was indeed a glorious one, this month will not be an exception for the Lord our God will show forth His praise in our lives and situation in Jesus Name.

I don’t know what You are believing God for in the new month, God knows and He will not fall short, if you keep your own side of the bargain, He will always uphold His.

The woman at the wall asked Jesus to give her water so that she will thirst not, neither come to the wall again to draw water.  That is a great faith. She believe that Jesus can quench her thirst and she will thirst no more. Whoop. That is awesome. Without knowing Christ, she believed Him, and she became one of fore-runner in Jesus ministry.

This month is going to be good to us from what the Holy Spirit is witnessing in my heart, is going to be great to all who believe that God is able to do that which He says He will do. Praise God.

There is always a seasons in everyone’s life. As God has made day and night, so is it in our life also. But the goodnews is that our hope is not dead /lost because Jesus is the resurrection and life, everything that is good but dead in our life is coming alive in Jesus Name. Salvation will be real in someone’s life this month in Jesus Name. Someone destiny is being recovered. Beloved, there will be miracle babies and marriages in this month in Jesus Name.

God is wiping away tears from someone eyes this month, your long awaited miracle is dropping into your palm this month in Jesus Name. Great is our God and blessed will be upon all you trusted and waited on Him for their redemption and deliverance. Praise God.

With great joy and gratitude of heart I announce to you the theme for this month. Beloved you are welcome to your Month of gladness” (Isa 35:10; Isa 51:3).

Let me hear some shouting in the house!!!!!!!! Yes! Our rejoicing will not cease. The Lord Who started a good work in our life will perfect it. Praise God.

Yes! When the Lord restore all that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm have eaten. Beloved naturally gladness will be the order of the day. I decree into someone life who has positioned him/herself to be blessed this month that God will make you glad in Jesus Name.

Beloved, come with me as we discover more:

“The evening and the morning were the first day.” Genesis 1:5

                                                                                                  

Was it so even in the beginning? Did light and darkness divide the realm of time in the first day? Then little wonder is it if I have also changes in my circumstances from the sunshine of prosperity to the midnight of adversity.

It will not always be the blaze of noon even in my soul concerns, I must expect at seasons to mourn the absence of my former joys, and seek my Beloved in the night. Nor am I alone in this, for all the Lord’s beloved ones have had to sing the mingled song of judgment and of mercy, of trial and deliverance, of mourning and of delight. It is one of the arrangements of Divine providence that day and night shall not cease either in the spiritual or natural creation till we reach the land of which it is written, “there is no night there.” What our heavenly Father ordains is wise and good.

What, then, my soul, is it best for thee to do? Learn first to be content with this divine order, and be willing, with Job, to receive evil from the hand of the Lord as well as good. Study next, to make the outgoings of the morning and the evening to rejoice. Praise the Lord for the sun of joy when it rises, and for the gloom of evening as it falls.

There is beauty both in sunrise and sunset, sing of it, and glorify the Lord. Like the nightingale, pour forth thy notes at all hours. Believe that the night is as useful as the day. The dews of grace fall heavily in the night of sorrow. The stars of promise shine forth gloriously amid the darkness of grief. Continue thy service under all changes. If in the day thy watchword be labour, at night exchange it for watch.

Every hour has its duty, do thou continue in thy calling as the Lord’s servant until He shall suddenly appear in His glory. My soul, thine evening of old age and death is drawing near, dread it not, for it is part of the day; and the Lord has said, “I will cover him all the day long.”

Yes! There is seasons in everyone life but our God will give us song in the night season and will not abound us or forsake us. He will always be there for us as He was in our morning season. Praise the Lord!

Beloved, as the Lord restores our lost and waste, so will our wilderness turn from a wasteland to a fruitful land. Come along with me as the Hand of the Lord will perform it. Praise the Lord!

“He will make her wilderness like Eden.” Isaiah 51:3

 

Methinks, I see in vision a howling wilderness, a great and terrible desert, like to the Sahara. I perceive nothing in it to relieve the eye, all around I am wearied with a vision of hot and arid sand, strewn with ten thousand bleaching skeletons of wretched men who have expired in anguish, having lost their way in the pitiless waste.

What an appalling sight! How horrible! a sea of sand without a bound, and without an oasis, a cheerless graveyard for a race forlorn! But behold and wonder! Upon a sudden, upspringing from the scorching sand I see a plant of renown; and as it grows it buds, the bud expands—it is a rose, and at its side a lily bows its modest head; and, miracle of miracles! as the fragrance of those flowers is diffused the wilderness is transformed into a fruitful field, and all around it blossoms exceedingly, the glory of Lebanon is given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon.

Call it not Sahara, call it Paradise. Speak not of it any longer as the valley of deathshade, for where the skeletons lay bleaching in the sun, behold a resurrection is proclaimed, and up spring the dead, a mighty army, full of life immortal. Jesus is that plant of renown, and His presence makes all things new. Nor is the wonder less in each individual’s salvation.

Yonder I behold you, dear reader, cast out, an infant, unswathed, unwashed, defiled with your own blood, left to be food for beasts of prey. But lo, a jewel has been thrown into your bosom by a divine hand, and for its sake you have been pitied and tended by divine providence, you are washed and cleansed from your defilement, you are adopted into heaven’s family, the fair seal of love is upon your forehead, and the ring of faithfulness is on your hand—you are now a prince unto God, though once an orphan, cast away.

 O prize exceedingly the matchless power and grace which changes deserts into gardens, and makes the barren heart to sing for joy.

What more can I desire from the Lord who picked me and cleanse me up least I become a food for the beast. Beloveth, I will surely rejoice and be glad in the Lord my Saviour for this great thing He has done and I receive in Jesus Name.

Don’t forget that today is faith clinic and we are also stepping into a new month. Hold on to what the Lord has declared and run with it, you will be glad did.

Remember, when the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. 2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them. 3 The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad. Psalms 126:1-3 (KJV)

Once again “Welcome to your month of Gladness.”  Beloved, you will be glad indeed. Come the end of this month, the Lord will surprise you and give you testimonies that will fill your mouth with laughter and you will be glad indeed. Your waste land will become a vegetation in Jesus Name. Just hold firm on Him.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
