Magnify the Lord with me praising the Name of Jesus. Magnify the Lord with me praising the Name of Jesus. // Who is like unto Thee, O Lord, who is like unto Thee, O Lord, among the gods who is like Thee, You are glorious in holiness fearful in praising doing wonders, alleluia.

Thank You Father for indeed You are a great Father. So loving and kind to all that You have made. We reverence You, we praise Your Holy Name forever and ever.  Thank You for the month of July, Thank You for preserving us from all evil, granting us uncountable blessings, and showering Your unfathomable love all through the month.

Thank You Father, for we believe this month will not be any less, You will take us higher and higher. Having come to the realization that our creation is to give You pleasure, Father help us to abide in You and not fail You again. Receive our praise and worship this new month, in Jesus Name we pray.

Beloveth, the month of august is here, the eight month of the year. The Lord took us through the seventh month just yesterday and we are good for it. Blessed be His Holy Name.  We are also believing Him for His leading not only for this month but also the remaining months in this year. Praise the Lord.

Our theme for this month according the leading of the Holy Spirit is “Our Month of Dominion through Goodness in Christ Jesus (Jer 31:12-14; Rom 15:13-14).”

Alleluia amen amen, alleluia amen amen, alleluia amen amen, alleuia amen amen, shout alleluia amen amen, alleluia amen amen, alleluia amen amen, alleluia amen amen.

Is someone shouting all-elu-ia? Are there rejoicing in the house? O my God, indeed we have a Father Who is a worthy of our praise.

Sing with me again, we have a Father, Almighty Father, He is King of kings and Lord of lords we have a Father.

Beloved, do you know what the month of august stand for the seasons? This is a month of harvest, every hard working farmer is smiling home now. Because their harvest is putting some coins in their pockets.

Same way, if you have been walking in the will of God,  winning souls for the kingdom of God, the Lord Who abound in goodness is telling you that your time of rejoicing has come, your time of singing is now. Together we shall flow to goodness of the Lord for wheat, wine, oil, flock and herd, you shall be like a watered garden. You shall sorrow no more.

Beloveth, the Lord is turning your mourning into joy, He is comforting you and He is making you rejoice from your sorrow. Your priests will be satisfy with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the Lord.

Beloveth, are you ready for all these blessings. Let us consider what Paul said in our theme text “now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing that you may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. And I myself also am persuade of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.”

If God has promise His goodness to you, likewise same is expected of you. Be ready to have dominion through your goodness towards others this month.

Let learn more from the teaching of the day.

“So foolish was I, and ignorant; I was as a beast before Thee.” Psalm 73:22

 

Remember this is the confession of the man after God’s own heart; and in telling us his inner life, he writes, “So foolish was I, and ignorant.” The word “foolish,” here, means more than it signifies in ordinary language. David, in a former verse of the Psalm, writes, “I was envious at the foolish when I saw the prosperity of the wicked,” which shows that the folly he intended had sin in it.

He puts himself down as being thus “foolish,” and adds a word which is to give intensity to it; “so foolish was I.” How foolish he could not tell. It was a sinful folly, a folly which was not to be excused by frailty, but to be condemned because of its perverseness and wilful ignorance, for he had been envious of the present prosperity of the ungodly, forgetful of the dreadful end awaiting all such.

And are we better than David that we should call ourselves wise! Do we profess that we have attained perfection, or to have been so chastened that the rod has taken all our wilfulness out of us? Ah, this were pride indeed! If David was foolish, how foolish should we be in our own esteem if we could but see ourselves! Look back, believer: think of your doubting God when He has been so faithful to you—think of your foolish outcry of “Not so, my Father,” when He crossed His hands in affliction to give you the larger blessing; think of the many times when you have read His providences in the dark, misinterpreted His dispensations, and groaned out, “All these things are against me,” when they are all working together for your good!

Think how often you have chosen sin because of its pleasure, when indeed, that pleasure was a root of bitterness to you! Surely if we know our own heart we must plead guilty to the indictment of a sinful folly; and conscious of this “foolishness,” we must make David’s consequent resolve our own—”Thou shalt guide me with Thy counsel.”

Beloveth that is what the Lord wants to do this month in you. To give you counsel through the workings of His Goodness. Making that resolve, come and see Jesus doing good.

“Who went about doing good.” Acts 10:38

 

Few words, but yet an exquisite miniature of the Lord Jesus Christ. There are not many touches, but they are the strokes of a master’s pencil. Of the Saviour and only of the Saviour is it true in the fullest, broadest, and most unqualified sense. “He went about doing good.” From this description it is evident that He did good personally.

The evangelists constantly tell us that He touched the leper with His own finger, that He anointed the eyes of the blind, and that in cases where He was asked to speak the word only at a distance, He did not usually comply, but went Himself to the sick bed, and there personally wrought the cure. A lesson to us, if we would do good, to do it ourselves.

Give alms with your own hand; a kind look, or word, will enhance the value of the gift. Speak to a friend about his soul; your loving appeal will have more influence than a whole library of tracts.

Our Lord’s mode of doing good sets forth His incessant activity! He did not only the good which came close to hand, but He “went about” on His errands of mercy. Throughout the whole land of Judea there was scarcely a village or a hamlet which was not gladdened by the sight of Him. How this reproves the creeping, loitering manner, in which many professors serve the Lord. Let us gird up the loins of our mind, and be not weary in well doing.

Does not the text imply that Jesus Christ went out of His way to do good? “He went about doing good.” He was never deterred by danger or difficulty. He sought out the objects of His gracious intentions. So must we. If old plans will not answer, we must try new ones, for fresh experiments sometimes achieve more than regular methods.

Christ’s perseverance, and the unity of His purpose, are also hinted at, and the practical application of the subject may be summed up in the words, “He hath left us an example that we should follow in His steps.”

Beloveth, if you are in this race of dominion, you have to learn from your Master –Jesus. If you are yet to start, the early you join us the better. By the end of this year, those around you will see the new you. You will also bear witness to yourself that you are better than you were at the beginning of the year.

Beloved, all the goodness as promise by God will be your portion. I trust the Holy Spirit to help you to show off goodness as the grace is given you.

Once again, welcome to Your Month of Dominion through Goodness in Christ Jesus. This week is declared blessed in the Name of the lord. go and do good as implore you by the God. He will pour His goodness on you as you obey His instruction all through the month.

Make sure you follow through.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
