What a Marvelous God, what a Wonderful God, He has done marvelous things for me; I will lift up of Your Name x3, above every other Name. Serving the Living God; yes am serving the living God Amen! What about you?

Father, we thank You for Your Goodness and Your Wonderful works in the lives of Your children, blessed be Thy Holy Name. Thank You for the heavens and the earth and let everything that has breathe praise Your Name.

What a Mighty God we serve. Beloved, it pays to serve God. Our God is a living God; the Only True God. God commanded us to love Him and serve Him (Exo 20:1-17; Deut 5:6-15). Loving God pays. A loving father takes care and keep watch over his family or everyone under his roof. So if our earthly father will be this nice to us, what about God Who created us in His own image?

Beloved, the whole essence of your being is to serve God (Deut 11:13; Jos 22:5; 1 Sam 7:3; 1 Sam 12:24), every other thing is what the bible calls “occupy till I come” (Lk 19:13).

However, in loving God and obeying all He has commanded us to do, we run into trouble waters. It does not appear smoothly as we thought it should be. The devil throw things at you and you get deeper into troubles, full regrets of  loving and obeying God (so will the enemy make it to appear). But is that true?

Sometime it appears as if God keep silent, waiting to know what you will do or what becomes of your decision. Will you give up? Will you go back to your old path of living in sins? Sometime you tend to wonder what is God doing while the evil prospers in the land. Above all God trieth your heart (Ps 7:9).

Though the Lord desires that none will perish but sometime some individuals offer themselves as instruments to be use by devil. Hear what the Lord has package for them. In verse eleven of Psalms Seven- … “God is angry with the wicked every day”.  So many hide under this saying above and refuse to repent arguing how can God destroy the world He  created talk less of the destroying the people He made in His own image, what an illusion. They forget easily what He has done in the past on those that refuse to trust Him and obey Him. They forgot also that God can never change and He is a righteous God and judges uprightly.

God has two nature. The loving God you know and the consuming fire. As God has His good side so also he punishes those that fail to obey Him. (this is not where I want to zero in for today)

As much you have decide to fellow Jesus, watch out for those things that He commanded you to do and do them. Concerning all that you are going through purported from the kingdom of darkness just to hinder your Christian race, do not be retard, keep on running until you get to the finished line but worthy of note is that for every thing you lose the Lord knows what to do.

He knows whom, when, and how to deliver you. You will not die on that bed of languishing; you will not die for want of food and water; you are coming out of that financial mess; the Lord will exempt you on the day in mark for your destruction; you will finish strong, you are coming out from that grave dug for you by the enemy. Hear me, the Lord is perfecting all that concerns you, you will laugh even in that situation, no more weeping. Sounds of joy will be heard in your camp.

Maybe you are not understanding me, those things that make you to cry from this moment cease to bring tears of sorrows to your eyes, in the midst of that chaos, you will laugh, the midst of those pains; you will rejoice; you are yet to carry or receive your bundle of joy, but you will still laugh, because now you have a better understanding of Who God is , His plan and purpose for all those who love and obey Him.

The big question is, do you love Him? Are you obeying Him? if you are, just keep on holding on for God will surely put laughter in your mouth and you will laugh loud and all that hear you will praise your God for He has done great things for you (Gen 21:6). Come along as we discover more below:

                        

“The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished.” 2Peter 2:9

The godly are tempted and tried. That is not true faith which is never put to the test. But the godly are delivered out of their trials, and that not by chance, nor by secondary agencies, but by the Lord himself. He personally undertakes the office of delivering those who trust Him. God loves the godly or godlike, and He makes a point of knowing where they are, and how they fare.

Sometimes their way seems to be a labyrinth, and they cannot imagine how they are to escape from threatening danger. What they do not know their Lord knows. He knows whom to deliver, and when to deliver, and how to deliver. He delivers in the way which is most beneficial to the godly, most crushing to the tempter, and most glorifying to Himself. We may leave the “how” with the Lord, and be content to rejoice in the fact that He will, in some way or other, bring His own people through all the dangers, trials, and temptations of this mortal life, to His own right hand in glory.

This day it is not for me to pry into my Lord’s secrets, but patiently to wait his time, knowing this, that though I know nothing, my heavenly Father knows.

Our God is living and true God, remember I was mention to you that “He knows what to do” all we need do is to hang on and allow patient to have it full course and behold God in the beauty of His holiness.

Beloved, bear this also in your mind that nothing is strong enough to separate you from God, whatsoever be it (Rom 8:35-39).  You will go on living from today as more than conqueror? And never be separated from God.

 

“And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?.” John 11:26

 

Yes, Lord, we believe it; we shall never die. Our soul may be separated from our body, and this is death of a kind; but our soul shall never be separated from God, which is the true death — the death which was threatened to sin — the death penalty which is the worst that can happen. We believe this most assuredly, for who shall separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord? We are members of the Body of Christ; will Christ lose parts of His body?

We are married to Jesus; will He be bereaved and widowed? It is not possible. There is a life within us which is not capable of being divided from God: yea, and the Holy Spirit dwells within us, and how then can we die?

Jesus, Himself, is our life, and therefore there is no dying for us, for He cannot die again. In Him we died unto sin once, and the capital sentence cannot a second time be executed. Now we live, and live for ever. The reward of righteousness is life everlasting, and we have nothing less than the righteousness of God, and therefore can claim the very highest reward.

Living and believing, we believe that we shall live and enjoy. Wherefore we press forward with full assurance that our life is secure in our living Head.

Finally, the assurance we have in God to bless us in TIME and ETERNITY is what will keep propelling us to keep loving and serving God. Inside this wonderful package of salvation you have nothing to lose, nothing whatsoever but all profiting and reward (Ps 19:11; Ps 58:11;Ps; Prov 22:4; Isa 62:11; Matt 5:12; Matt 9:41; 1 Cor 3:8;14; ).

Are you glad to know that our God is the only true God, His mercies endureth forever. He will make you a new creation, the “how” belongs to Him.

Remind blessed in the Lord.
