My Stubborn Will At Last Hath Yielded.

Isaiah_64-8: But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand

Isaiah_64-8: But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand

My Stubborn Will At Last Hath Yielded
I Would Be Thine And Thine Alone;
And This The Prayer My Lips Are Bringing,
Lord, Let In Me Thy Will Be Done.

I’m Tried Of Sin, Footsore And Weary,
The Darksome Path Hath Dreary Grown,
But Now A Light Has Risen To Cheer Me!
I Find In Thee My Star, My Sun.

Sweet Will Of God, Still Fold Me Closer,
Till I Am Wholly Lost In Thee;
Sweet Will Of God, Still Fold Me Closer,
Till I Am Wholly Lost In Thee.

Thy Precious Will, O Conquering Saviour.
Doth Now Embrace And Compass Me;
All Discords Hushed, My Peace A River,
My Soul, A Prisoned Bird Set Free.

Shut In With Thee, O Lord, For Ever,
My Wayward Feet No More To Roam;
What Power From Thee My Soul Can Sever?
The Center Of God’s Will My Home.
Amen!

Isaiah_64-8: But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand

Isaiah_64-8: But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand

A Deep Sense Of Compassion

“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”

Micah 6:8

Lamentations_3-22: It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

Lamentations_3-22: It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

It was Edmund Burke who said, “All that’s necessary for the forces of evil to win in the world is for enough good men to do nothing.” Sadly, this is all too true today, as many good people—yes, even Christians—sit on the sideline and do nothing about the injustice and pain that so pervade this world.

I sometimes wonder if the church has forgotten how to weep. When you see girls and ladies lined up for abortions, do you weep bitter tears of compassion? When you watch that television commercial about how we can help a child in need somewhere in the world, does it even faze you? When a family breaks up because of a divorce, are you also broken by that?

I think one thing that’s so noticeably missing among the people of God today is a deep sense of compassion and empathy for the hurting. One reason for this, I believe, is what psychologists call the L.I.A.R., The Low Information-To-Action Ratio, whereby we’re so overwhelmed through media with news of suffering that it’s easy to begin to tune it out.

But don’t forget, people who suffer are real people. And in Jesus Christ, we have a real solution for them. So pray and ask God to show you where you can help relieve suffering in the world.

With So Much Pain In Our World Today, Look For Ways You Can Help Alleviate The Suffering Of Others.

Psalms_5-12-1: For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

True Joy

“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.”

Isaiah 26:3

Nehemiah_8-10: Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength

Nehemiah_8-10: Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength

You don’t have to look far today to see that too many people lack joy in their lives. They’re like that little boy whose mother took him to Disneyland. He was right in the middle of Disneyland, “The Happiest Place on Earth,” just crying his eyes out. So his mother looked at him and said, “You’re going to have fun whether you like it or not!”

So often today, people mistake happiness for joy. They think, “This made me happy, so it must be where I’m going to get the most out of life.” But the problem is that there are so many things today that can make you happy, but will never give you joy. They gratify, but they’ll never truly satisfy.

Real joy comes about not because of our circumstances, but from our heart’s focus. Joy is a condition that surpasses our momentary afflictions and concentrates on the promises that we have in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the only one who can bring you true joy.

Stop looking for real and lasting joy in fleeting pleasures. Find your joy solely in Jesus Christ, trusting in His promises of deliverance and salvation from negative circumstances and entrusting yourself wholly to Him!

Instead Of Finding Joy In Fleeting Pleasures, Look To Christ To Give You Real And Lasting Peace No Matter Your Circumstances!

Psalms_16-11: Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Psalms_16-11: Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Jesus, My Eyes Are Unto Thee

Hebrews_12-2: Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God

Hebrews_12-2: Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God

Jesus, My Eyes Are Unto Thee
For Thou Art All I Long To See,
Since Thou Hast Suffered On The Tree,
That I Might Live.

Jesus, My Heart Is Fixed On
Thee,
Waiting For All Thou Hast For Me,
Seeking A Closer Walk With
Thee,
Thy Paths To See.

Jesus, My Soul Still Pants For Thee,
For Thou Art All In All To Me,
And When Thy Blessed Face I
See,
At Rest I’ll Be.

Jesus, For Thy Great Love I Yearn,
Even For Those God’s Ways Who Spurn,
That Through Thy Love From Death They’ll Turn,
To Thee And Live.

Oh, That My Steps May Quickened Be,
To Follow him Who Still Loves Me,
And Bids Me Through Eternity,
With Him To Dwell,

Jesus, of Him Shall Be My
Song,
Who Loved Me Patiently And Long,
My Life, My All, Henceforth Belong,
To Him Alone.
Amen!

What Do You Want Out Of Life? Is It The Gold Or The Glory? Crowd Or Crown? Gift Or The Giver Of The Gift?

“I am the vine ye are the branches, he that abidedth in me and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit” John 15:5

John_15-16: Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you

John_15-16: Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you

I know that there is a quest and desire like never before today for success and relevance. We all want result in all areas of our lives. It is not just you that is reading this, but that is generally the position with the body of Christ at large. No one wants to be seen as a failure and it is easy to fall for the trap of seeking success at all cost. More especially when you begin to consider the challenges we are facing.

The activity of the enemy is increasing no doubt. We have greater challenges to contend with like never before. The opportunity to compromise the standard of the word confronts the believer every day. The words of Paul to Timothy are coming to pass before our very eyes when he said, “In the last days, perilous times shall come” (2 Timothy 3:1)

There is the desire to breakthrough these walls of resistance the enemy has created and it is the desire of God that we get result in all our endeavours because we represent God. He wants us to succeed in every area of our lives – in marriages, academics, jobs, business, finance etc.

However the question God is asking is, “Are you looking for success anyhow?” Are you in the league of those who say if you can’t beat them join them or are you part of those who claim the end justifies the means? Are you interested in just getting result or do you care about having His presence? What do you want for yourself? There are many today who have lost the presence of God. What do you want out of life? Is it the gold or the glory? Is it the crowd or the crown? Do you want the gift or the giver of the gift? Thank God for success and achievements, but when it is at the expense of His presence it is not good success. The Bible rightly admonishes us to seek good success. I challenge you today to make it His presence or nothing.

John 15:1-27

1 John 3
Ezekiel 47-48

John_14-1: Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me

John_14-1: Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me

I Am Legally Declared Righteous In Christ Jesus

I Am Legally Declared Righteous In Christ Jesus

Romans_10-10: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation

Romans_10-10: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation

Romans 8:31-34

Throughout life, there will be times when our sins and failures lead us to conclude that God is disappointed or angry with us. How can He still love me after what I’ve done? If I’m really forgiven, why do I still feel so guilty? At such times, we need to fix our eyes on the truth of Scripture and ask the questions Paul posed in Romans 8.

If God is for us, who is against us
(v. 31)? Our heavenly Father proved His loyalty to us when He delivered His own Son over to death in order to save us. Without Christ’s atoning death on our behalf, we would face eternal separation from God.

Who will bring a charge against God’s elect (v. 33)? No accusation against us can stand, since at the moment of salvation, the Lord justified us. This means we were legally declared righteous, while still in our sinning condition. No one can reverse this transaction and make us guilty again. To doubt our blameless standing in Christ is to declare His atonement insufficient to cover our sin.

Who is the one who condemns (v. 34)? Although Satan rails against us, Jesus’ death and resurrection are proof that we are right with God. Christ took our condemnation and gave us His righteousness in return. Now He sits at the Father’s right hand, interceding for us.

When doubts about the Lord’s love and faithfulness arise, focus on truth. If we judge His loyalty to us by our circumstances or feelings, we will never get an accurate view of God. True security lies not in our good performance, but in our relationship with Christ, and no one can take that from us.

Thank You Jesus!

Isaiah_54-17: No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD

I Will Be Celebrated. There Is No Sin Strong Enough To Stop Me

I Will Be Celebrated. There Is No Sin Strong Enough To Stop Me

Psalms_118-24: This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it

Psalms_118-24: This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it

” ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

I have an assurance and witness from Heaven that you will not be disappointed. No matter the challenge you are passing through right now; in your business; in your marriage; in your job or academics; I know you will not be disappointed. I don’t care how tough it is for you right now, your celebration is on the way. Yes the year is practically drawing to a close; I prophesy over your life that you will celebrate.

That is why I am challenging you today to make plans for your celebration because your testimony is coming soonest; even sooner than you expect. What God has already done, you will not be able to exhaust for eternity. He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that you ask or think.

Do you know that your future is bright? Yes, you have a colourful destiny. God is not through with you yet. I serve a notice to the devil and his cohorts. What you have seen so far is nothing compared to what is coming your way. Something heavy is coming to you. You are more than a conqueror. That sickness will not kill you. No challenge will stop you. There is no sin strong enough to stop you. No bondage is strong enough to hold you. Once it passes through the blood, it cannot survive anymore.

Make plans for your celebration. The enemy may have said that you cannot have a child but I see you dedicating children. He may have said that you will not survive that sickness. Let me announce to him that that sickness will not see your end; you will see the end of that sickness. You cannot end the way you are now. God will come through for you.

I like Job. Even when things were so tough for him, he still said in Job 14:14 that he will wait all the days of his life until his change comes. In other words, he knew his change will come. He was not bothered about what the enemy was doing. Job had it settled in his heart that his change would come.

Do you know that your change will come? If you do, then get ready; make plans for your celebration because your testimony is here. I bless you today.

Jeremiah 29:1-14

Job 14:7-15

Zechariah 5-8

Revelation 19

Psalms_28-7: The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
