A DAILY MESSAGE

There are times when your faith will demand an extra divine boost, when it is weak and needs strengthening or when you are called into something bigger in your work for God. It is all a matter of moving on with God into all He has purposed for you to achieve in this now world. You will require more than natural confidence or the boosting of your self-ego. The demand will be for the divine dynamic that will answer every situation and see some of the most astonishing things occurring at this stage. Having done so much for you in the past is but the platform for so much more. You can settle down and be dormant and stagnant or be expanding’so setting a great spiritual tone and role model for those around you. Faith comes by God’s word. Meditate in the book of Hebrews now, especially chapter 11 and your faith will know a divine injection

SACRED SONGS

Count Your Blessings

This is a great hymn for Sunday morning in review of the past week of God’s gifts and graces. It is an apt reminder of the amazing, constant kindness of God in many ways. This song has the power, as it is sung, in faith to transform one’s thinking, lifts one’s spirit and intensify faith and expectation. Make this melody yours today and let us know the results.

When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed, When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one, And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Refrain

Count your blessings, name them one by one, Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one, And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care? Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly, And you will keep singing as the days go by.

When you look at others with their lands and gold, Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold; Count your many blessings. Wealth can never buy nYour reward in heaven, nor your home on high.

So, amid the conflict whether great or small, Do not be disheartened, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend, Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert’s Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill. However, Mr. Oatman only serves as a local preacher. For many years he was engaged with his father in the mercantile business at Lumberton. He has written over 3,000 hymns, and no gospel song is considered being complete unless it contains some of his hymns.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A PERSISTENT ATTITUDE – Matthew 15: 21-28

Here is a woman that seemingly had no claims on Christ because of her racial and national identity but in a remarkable way receives from Him what she desires. She Is not to be put off by anyone or anything until she obtains that which was driving and consuming her being; the deliverance of her daughter. She has this pressing need and knows that Christ is the One capable of her answering it and so persists in her quest until she gains the supreme longing of her heart. No one and nothing will stop her in succeeding and Christ is pleased by her attitude. Jesus is the one that drew out the best in her although He appeared to have frustrated her.

The disciples were none too pleased with her spirit and tenacity and sought to get rid of her by saying to the Lord: “Send her away; for she crieth after us” – v23. They did not even take up her cause in compassion and become her advocate! There was a lack of concern and compassion on their part. Christ appears to put her off twice in His words but she refuses to give in and has an answer for Him that thrills Him and causes Him not only to respond to her request but commends her and her faith – “O woman, great is your faith” – v28. The determined effort that had been put into it was worth it all because she got what she came for and subsequently became a testimony and example for others to copy.

It may be that the Lord is seeking to nurture this kind of spirit within you at this particular time. You are in circumstances where you are frustrated over a persistent problem that no one can answer. It refuses to go away. Come to Christ and press through and lay it before Him in faith and refuse to allow anyone and anything to interfere believing He will deal with the issue. And He will!
