What shall I say unto the Lord, all I have to say is thank You Lord. What shall I say unto Jehovah, all I have to say is thank You Lord! Thank You Lord, thank You Lord; I have to say is thank You Lord! Thank You Lord, thank You Lord, all I have to say is thank You Lord.// My hands are bless with the blessing of the Lord! My hands are blessed with the blessing of the Lord, everything I touch, truly must be bless, my hands are bless with the blessings of the Lord, with the blessings of Lord.

Heavenly Father, we thank You we bless Your Holy Name, who is like unto Thee, Lord, You are God, you are not just big, You are not great, You are a great God! Who is like unto Thee Lord, faithful is Your Name. Thank You for Who You are, Thank You Honouring Name above all. Thank You for holding us forth and making us daily what You have planned for us to be. Glory be to Your Name on high.

Father, thank You for the gift of a beautiful day; a beautiful week ahead of us, it will be with resounding joy, your children pass through it in the Name of Jesus.

Beloved, how was your weekend, hope splendid? Our God is good; all the time. Beloveth, as we appear before the Holy One Whose Word faileth not, He will perfect all that concerneth You. Yes! The Word of the Lord standeth sure and He will surely bring it past, none of His Word has ever  fail before now and it will fail never fail, Faithful is His Name.

I don’t know what might be going through but I stand in awe of who God is and declare to you that you come out victoriously in Jesus Name. There are situations in life that might asking you where is your God? There are obstacles in life that looks in surmountable to you but before God. because whatever be it bow at the sight of God, even the mountain leap and feet  join me to see what Psalmist said about the Holy One of Israel in Ps 29 and Ps 104.

So what ever be it before you that make you heart faint or miss it beating or ever makes you think twice about decision for Jesus, you just have to think again. There is nothing beyond our God. He is Greater than the greatest, Higher than the highest, Might are His miracles. My God is too good to fail. He will never you nor forsake you, His Word must accomplish that which it was sent forth to do, it can never return to Him void (Isa 55:11).

The topic of today is one of the hard saying (teachings) of our Jesus Christ, many of His disciples left Him because of it and He therefore turn to his disciple and asked  them if they will also leave Him. So many have reason why they cease to follow Him but if I may ask you dearly beloved will you forsaken your Savoiur just because of the worldings or cares of this life.

This might be a great mistake, I think you should stop at this point make a reverse 3600 and look for where you have drop Jesus off your shoulder. Beloveth, the Lord promised that He will never leave you nor forsake you, no matter what it may be. Look not at what is happening presently but look steadily unto Jesus and it shall be well with you.

Beloved, could it be that the shifting of the ground you are experiencing is  because you are not growing in the things of the Spirit as you ought. You must therefore grow from drinking the pure milk of the Word to eating the of strong meat of the Word of God so that you will not be tossed by every wind of the doctrine. Praise the Lord. (1 Cor 3:2, Heb 5:12-14,1Pet 2:2-3).

Come along with me as you will discover more:

 

“Will ye also go away?” John 6:67

 

Many have forsaken Christ, and have walked no more with Him; but what reason have YOU to make a change? Has there been any reason for it in the past? Has not Jesus proved Himself all-sufficient? He appeals to you this morning—”Have I been a wilderness unto you?” When your soul has simply trusted Jesus, have you ever been confounded? Have you not up till now found your Lord to be a compassionate and generous friend to you, and has not simple faith in Him given you all the peace your spirit could desire?

Can you so much as dream of a better friend than He has been to you? Then change not the old and tried for new and false. As for the present, can that compel you to leave Christ? When we are hard beset with this world, or with the severer trials within the Church, we find it a most blessed thing to pillow our head upon the bosom of our Saviour.

This is the joy we have today that we are saved in Him; and if this joy be satisfying, wherefore should we think of changing? Who barters gold for dross? We will not forswear the sun till we find a better light, nor leave our Lord until a brighter lover shall appear; and, since this can never be, we will hold Him with a grasp immortal, and bind His name as a seal upon our arm.

As for the future, can you suggest anything which can arise that shall render it necessary for you to mutiny, or desert the old flag to serve under another captain? We think not. If life be long—He changes not. If we are poor, what better than to have Christ who can make us rich? When we are sick, what more do we want than Jesus to make our bed in our sickness? When we die, is it not written that “neither death, nor life, nor things present, nor things to come, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord!” We say with Peter, “Lord, to whom shall we go?” More below:

“Grow up into Him in all things.” Ephesians 4:15

 

Many Christians remain stunted and dwarfed in spiritual things, so as to present the same appearance year after year. No up-springing of advanced and refined feeling is manifest in them. They exist but do not “grow up into Him in all things.”

But should we rest content with being in the “green blade,” when we might advance to “the ear,” and eventually ripen into the “full corn in the ear?” Should we be satisfied to believe in Christ, and to say, “I am safe,” without wishing to know in our own experience more of the fulness which is to be found in Him. It should not be so; we should, as good traders in heaven’s market, covet to be enriched in the knowledge of Jesus.

It is all very well to keep other men’s vineyards, but we must not neglect our own spiritual growth and ripening. Why should it always be winter time in our hearts? We must have our seed time, it is true, but O for a spring time—yea, a summer season, which shall give promise of an early harvest. If we would ripen in grace, we must live near to Jesus—in His presence—ripened by the sunshine of His smiles.

We must hold sweet communion with Him. We must leave the distant view of His face and come near, as John did, and pillow our head on His breast; then shall we find ourselves advancing in holiness, in love, in faith, in hope—yea, in every precious gift.

As the sun rises first on mountain-tops and gilds them with his light, and presents one of the most charming sights to the eye of the traveller; so is it one of the most delightful contemplations in the world to mark the glow of the Spirit’s light on the head of some saint, who has risen up in spiritual stature, like Saul, above his fellows, till, like a mighty Alp, snow-capped, he reflects first among the chosen, the beams of the Sun of Righteousness, and bears the sheen of His effulgence high aloft for all to see, and seeing it, to glorify His Father which is in heaven.

Yes! he will reflect on us when we take time to reflect on the Word of God as we keep the vineyard so that we will not stunt in growth rather we should grow from desiring pure milk to the eating of strong meat. May God help us in Jesus Name.

On this note dearly beloved, we declare this open and by the grace of God we will return with greater testimonies at the end in Jesus Name. the blood and body of Jesus will do us good and not evil in Jesus Name. our God is good; all the time.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
