Blessed Redeemer, Wonderful messiah, the Beginning and the End, I bow before Your Throne to worship Your Majesty. Glory be to Holy Name now and forever more.

Who is greater than Jehovah love divine? There is no one greater than Jehovah love divine. There is no one like Lord; like You Father! I have searcheth all eternity Father and I said there is none like Thee. Blessed be Thy Holy Name forever and ever and ever.

The Lord will fulfill [His purpose] for me. Lord, Your love is eternal; do not abandon the work of your hands (Ps 138:8).

Beloved, you are not an abandon project. The Lord who started His good work in you will finish it. He will not leave you nor forsake you. His purpose for us we discovered, must not be thwarted. Praise the Lord.

Even if the confederation of hell is let loose, none will come near your dwellings for the Lord is your refuge and your fortress (Ps 91:2). Beloved, do you believe in the theme of this month “In the Power of His Might?

The truth is that you cannot save yourself not even with all prayers and fasting but you know what, God has made it very easy for us by sending His Son Jesus Christ to the cross.

Then if you must flow along with me in the theme of the month, you must understand and believe in the finished work of Calvary. Jesus went all the way to Calvary for you and I. His death on the cross delivered a comprehensive assurance we will ever need in this journey of life.

Beloved, there are battles every day and everywhere, but the battle is not mine says the Lord. He will fight every battle and win victories for me. Even though they gather together and take counsel, it will not stand according to the Word for my sake they shall surely scatter… No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against me in judgment thou shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servant of the Lord, and their righteousness is me, saith the Lord (Isa 54:15-17).

Now are you getting a clearer picture of the theme? You cannot fight this battle alone, you need Christ and that He has won for you and I on the cross. Will you believe and rest at the finished work of Calvary? Were Jesus said “it is finish” (Jn 19:30) for we are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

 

“Ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:26

The fatherhood of God is common to all his children. Ah! Little-faith, you have often said, “Oh that I had the courage of Great-heart, that I could wield his sword and be as valiant as he! But, alas, I stumble at every straw, and a shadow makes me afraid.” List thee, Little-faith. Great-heart is God’s child, and you are God’s child too; and Great-heart is not one whit more God’s child than you are. Peter and Paul, the highly- favoured apostles, were of the family of the Most High; and so are you also; the weak Christian is as much a child of God as the strong one.

 “This cov’nant stands secure,

Though earth’s old pillars bow;

The strong, the feeble, and the weak,

Are one in Jesus now.”

 q1All the names are in the same family register. One may have more grace than another, but God our heavenly Father has the same tender heart towards all. One may do more mighty works, and may bring more glory to his Father, but he whose name is the least in the kingdom of heaven is as much the child of God as he who stands among the King’s mighty men. Let this cheer and comfort us, when we draw near to God and say, “Our Father.”

Yet, while we are comforted by knowing this, let us not rest contented with weak faith, but ask, like the Apostles, to have it increased. However feeble our faith may be, if it be real faith in Christ, we shall reach heaven at last, but we shall not honour our Master much on our pilgrimage, neither shall we abound in joy and peace. If then you would live to Christ’s glory, and be happy in His service, seek to be filled with the spirit of adoption more and more completely, till perfect love shall cast out fear.

Our faith in the Word is of essence in this present race. May God increase our faith to see things working for our good in Jesus Name. For our sufficiency is of God (2 Cor 3:5) and according to His mercy He will remember us (Ps 25:7). Truly He loved us:

As the Father hath loved Me, so have I loved you.” John 15:9

As the Father loves the Son, in the same manner Jesus loves His people. What is that divine method? He loved Him without beginning, and thus Jesus loves His members. “I have loved thee with an everlasting love.” You can trace the beginning of human affection; you can easily find the beginning of your love to Christ, but His love to us is a stream whose source is hidden in eternity.

God the Father loves Jesus without any change. Christian, take this for your comfort, that there is no change in Jesus Christ’s love to those who rest in Him. Yesterday you were on Tabor’s top, and you said, “He loves me:” today you are in the valley of humiliation, but He loves you still the same.

On the hill Mizar, and among the Hermons, you heard His voice, which spake so sweetly with the turtle-notes of love; and now on the sea, or even in the sea, when all His waves and billows go over you, His heart is faithful to His ancient choice.

The Father loves the Son without any end, and thus does the Son love His people.Saint, thou needest not fear the loosing of the silver cord, for His love for thee will never cease. Rest confident that even down to the grave Christ will go with you, and that up again from it He will be your guide to the celestial hills.

Moreover, the Father loves the Son without any measure, and the same immeasurable love the Son bestows upon His chosen ones. The whole heart of Christ is dedicated to His people. He “loved us and gave Himself for us.” His is a love which passeth knowledge.

Ah! we have indeed an immutable Saviour, a precious Saviour, one who loves without measure, without change, without beginning, and without end, even as the Father loves Him! There is much food here for those who know how to digest it. May the Holy Ghost lead us into its marrow and fatness!

This means that we get more understanding on what the Spirit is saying. For we will walk in the Name of Lord our God for ever and ever (Mic 4:5). Fear not, but let your hand be strong (Zech 8:13c) and God will see you through.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
