Father, we declare Your sovereignty above all that You have created. Let heaven and earth adore You whose life is infinite. You are Immortal, Invisible, the only Wise God; we praise You forever and ever! Amen.
Hope you had a nice time in His presence interceding for that friend or relation of us that must go to hell; you presented that situation, worthy course before Him and you are prepared to pray not with unbelief but until you receive an answer. Remember the prayer of a righteous man availeth much, so don’t give up for the time to favour Zion is now.
Is by His grace we are not consumed, therefore beloved may His grace abide forever in our lives to keep us from destruction and preserve us for the finally reunion with the Lamb. For the Lord worketh all things after the counsel of His will. Let’s consider further:
“Who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will.” Ephesians 1:11
Our belief in God’s wisdom supposes and necessitates that He has a settled purpose and plan in the work of salvation. What would creation have been without His design? Is there a fish in the sea, or a fowl in the air, which was left to chance for its formation?
Nay, in every bone, joint, and muscle, sinew, gland, and blood-vessel, you mark the presence of a God working everything according to the design of infinite wisdom. And shall God be present in creation, ruling over all, and not in grace? Shall the new creation have the fickle genius of free will to preside over it when divine counsel rules the old creation?
Look at Providence! Who knoweth not that not a sparrow falleth to the ground without your Father? Even the hairs of your head are all numbered. God weighs the mountains of our grief in scales, and the hills of our tribulation in balances. And shall there be a God in providence and not in grace?
Shall the shell be ordained by wisdom and the kernel be left to blind chance. No; He knows the end from the beginning. He sees in its appointed place, not merely the corner-stone which He has laid in fair colours, in the blood of His dear Son, but He beholds in their ordained position each of the chosen stones taken out of the quarry of nature, and polished by His grace; He sees the whole from corner to cornice, from base to roof, from foundation to pinnacle.
He hath in His mind a clear knowledge of every stone which shall be laid in its prepared space, and how vast the edifice shall be, and when the top-stone shall be brought forth with shoutings of “Grace! Grace! unto it.”
At the last it shall be clearly seen that in every chosen vessel of mercy, Jehovah did as He willed with His own; and that in every part of the work of grace He accomplished His purpose, and glorified His own name.
Let someone shout alleluia! Amen. Do you know that all the promises of God made in the bible are available for everyone that cares to claim? Is both to bless you and prosper the kingdom of God; the world is there for you to take, go; take your property, are you in doubt? Find out more below:
“Behold, the Lord thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged.” Deut. 1:21
There is a heritage of grace which we ought to be bold enough to win for our own possession. All that one believer has gained is free to another. We may be strong in faith, fervent in love, and abundant in labor; there is nothing to prevent it; let us go up and take possession.
The sweetest experience and the brightest grace are as much for us as for any of our brethren, Jehovah has set it before us; no one can deny our right; let us go up and possess it in His name.
The world also lies before us to be conquered for the Lord Jesus. We are not to leave any country or corner of it unsubdued. That slum near our house is before us, not to baffle our endeavors, but to yield to them. We have only to summon courage enough to go forward, and we shall win dark homes and hard hearts for Jesus.
Let us never leave the people in a lane or alley to die because we have not enough faith in Jesus and His gospel to go up and possess the land. No spot is too benighted, no person so profane as to be beyond the power of grace. Cowardice, begone! Faith marches to the conquest.
Did you really pray for a soul as we were encouraged to do yesterday? Just to remind you that Christ will only come when every soul has been preached to. So if you desire for the kingdom to come, engage in soul winning business along with your choice career.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
