Who is on the Lord’s side I want to know, I am on the Lord side 2x.. I am on the Lord side and Jesus is on my side, as long as I live, as long as stay, I am on the Lord’s side.’’ // Come lets praise the Lord (Come lets praise the Lord) Come lets praise the Lord (Come lets praise the Lord) He is Jehovah (Tell the world of His faithfulness) He is El-Shaddai (Tell the world of His salvation) Spread the news around (Tell the world of his praise) Come lets praise the Lord (Praise the Lord) Forever and ever my God He is the same, ’ll never Change From eternity to eternity, He’ll be my God. Praise Him!! Jehovah, Praise Him!! Jehovah, Praise Him!! The Lord of Lords.

Our Father we Praise You, we honour and adore Thee, thank You for the privilege to come before this moment, receive our praises Father, receive all worship, be Thou exalted O Lord, may You hear us and bless us Lord in Jesus Name.

Beloveth, our Lord is good; all time our Lord is good. What am awesome moment we will be having again in God’s Presence today. The psalmist said, “I was glad when they said let us go to the house of the Lord… beloveth are happy to be in God’s Presence?  If you then join us to sing

I am so happy, so very happy that Jesus died for me…. I am so happy, so very happy that Jesus died for me….

Yes! that is the spirit, to show contentment with God’s gifts and blessings. you labour not for it, you did not receive salvation as a result of righteous acts or living but it was given to you, so imputed His righteousness on you when He took your place and died for the sins you committed so that His Father will cease to see your sinful nature rather He will see the Precious Blood of His Son and count among His own… Praise the Lord!

Beloveth, the text of this day ought to teach us lesson. That we are trust God and take back to Him burden to heavy for us to bear rather than giving up on Him or His assignments.

Yes! The Lord trieth the heart to see on which wall thou laineth, beloveth let it not be said of us that we fall by the way side or on rocky ground but rather let it be said of us that we look unto our God for deliverance or solution, may our help comes from the Lord! As He did to Moses on day of his trial may; may He also do us in our present challenges in Jesus Name.

“Wherefore hast Thou afflicted Thy servant?” Numbers 11:11

Our heavenly Father sends us frequent troubles to try our faith. If our faith be worth anything, it will stand the test. Gilt is afraid of fire, but gold is not: the paste gem dreads to be touched by the diamond, but the true jewel fears no test.

It is a poor faith which can only trust God when friends are true, the body full of health, and the business profitable; but that is true faith which holds by the Lord’s faithfulness when friends are gone, when the body is sick, when spirits are depressed, and the light of our Father’s countenance is hidden.

A faith which can say, in the direst trouble, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him,” is heaven-born faith. The Lord afflicts His servants to glorify Himself, for He is greatly glorified in the graces of His people, which are His own handiwork.

When “tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope,” the Lord is honoured by these growing virtues. We should never know the music of the harp if the strings were left untouched; nor enjoy the juice of the grape if it were not trodden in the winepress; nor discover the sweet perfume of cinnamon if it were not pressed and beaten; nor feel the warmth of fire if the coals were not utterly consumed.

The wisdom and power of the great Workman are discovered by the trials through which His vessels of mercy are permitted to pass. Present afflictions tend also to heighten future joy.

There must be shades in the picture to bring out the beauty of the lights. Could we be so supremely blessed in heaven, if we had not known the curse of sin and the sorrow of earth? Will not peace be sweeter after conflict, and rest more welcome after toil? Will not the recollection of past sufferings enhance the bliss of the glorified?

 There are many other comfortable answers to the question with which we opened our brief meditation, let us muse upon it all day long.

Beloveth, yes tribulation worketh out patient, beloveth we must put on Christ as God’s children, living righteously, so that our life will not be a reproach to others. We must ask the Holy spirit our helper, comforter, and teacher to guide us into all truth knowing that the grace of God abound unto us for every good work. may God help us till the very end.  ask God to protect your faith in Him, defend your cause and uphold your salvation without which no man can see God.
