Ever Grateful

I Lift my hands to worship you

How can I deny that you are good

I lift my voice to praise your name

How can I deny that you are good.

God is good all the time, He put a song of praise in this heart of mine

God is good all the time, through the darkest night His light will shine

God is good, He is so good all the time.

I’m blessed to be chosen of God, I’m blessed to be loved by Him

I’m blessed and I’m forever grateful

I’m blessed.

So You Fell…

The only person interested in the fall of a child of God is the devil himself and his interest is to see you rise not.

But God is so much interested in the rising of His children than He is in their fall.

God stated in Jeremiah 8:4 (ASV) Moreover thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith Jehovah: Shall men fall and not rise up again? Shall one turn away, and not return?

The Word of God says also in Micah 7:8 (ASV) Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, Jehovah will be light unto me.

So, child of God falling is not the problem but not rising after a fall is not in line with God’s expectation of you. Every thing has been made available for your rising.

You must be determined to arise and move on to a better Glory.

There is a prophecy that apply to the fall of some children of God in Daniel 11:35 it reads;

And some of them that are wise shall fall, to refine them, and to purify and to make them white, even to the time of the end; because it is yet for the time appointed.

But the decision to rise up and move ahead is solely that of the child of God that fell in this times we are in.

For a righteous man falleth seven times, and riseth up again Proverbs 24:16 (ASV)

So Arise my brethren, arise.

In the Light of His Glory

Being in the presence of God transforms us and makes us see things around us in a better light.
God’s presence is the place of fellowship with God, where our journey in the christian race receives grace to face our day.
Reading prophet Habakkuk’s experience after seeing God in His glory explains this. Habakkuk chapter 3, See below glimpse;
God came from Teman, And the Holy One from mount Paran
His glory covered the heavens, And the earth was full of his praise.
And his brightness was as the light; He had rays coming forth from his hand;
And there was the hiding of his power.
Before him went the pestilence, And fiery bolts went forth at his feet.
He stood, and measured the earth; He beheld, and drove asunder the nations;
And the eternal mountains were scattered;
The everlasting hills did bow; His goings were as of old. Habakkuk 3:3-6
Hear what came out of the prophet’s mouth after experiencing God’s presence:
For though the fig-tree shall not flourish, Neither shall fruit be in the vines;
The labor of the olive shall fail, And the fields shall yield no food;
The flock shall be cut off from the fold, And there shall be no herd in the stalls:
Yet I will rejoice in Jehovah, I will joy in the God of my salvation.
Jehovah, the Lord, is my strength; And he maketh my feet like hinds’ feet,
And will make me to walk upon my high places. Habakkuk 3:17-19 asv
Being in the presence of God affect the way we see situation that surround us.
To the prophet, material things no longer were priority, what mattered was the size of Jehovah.
….In the Light of His Glory God becomes magnified and everything around becomes less important as God’s strength covers all.
I strongly believe Christians need to be more in God’s presence now than ever as in His presence our problems becomes less challenging in the assurance that the Lord who is strong and mighty can bear us up and douse them all.

Rejoice Always

 

A short but precise instruction from the word of God to His children is to “rejoice always” 1 Thessalonians 5:17. This implies that no situation whatsoever should stop a child of God from rejoicing.

A child of God must choose to rejoice in every situation.

Hab.3:17-19 asv. tells us of the decision of prophet Habakkuk to rejoice no matter what the situation is.

Rejoicing always is a decision we must make as children of God as a directive from on High, this is majorly because strength from God comes through joy Nehemiah 8:10 asv.

God’s presence is full of joy Psalm 16:11 asv and we must choose to reside there always, enter into the presence of God through prayer, through the Word or through praise when your joy seems to be diminishing.

A christian must protect and preserve his or her joy and let it not be stolen by the evil one, it must be guarded jealously. For when you are joyous then you are strong.

Finally be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might Ephesians 6:10 asv.

It is the will of God that we should be filled with joy at all times.

 

Anchor

Oh, you should have held all the anchors that passed you by in your dive through this sea.

Why really did you wait this long, can help ever come again?

Oh no, you’re lost you must think, the fears of drowning grip your heart so.

Don’t ever give up. It may be darkest closest to the morning but surely the morning is just a tick away.

Morning is almost here, don’t let go of Jesus. He is the Anchor and He is around you, open your eyes and you will see Him right ahead…..

This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, Hebrews 6:9 nkjv.
