DAILY MESSAGE

Be alert to the great truth that the Lord is seeking to school and discipline you in, the knowledge of how to really live in all conditions of life. There are many variables within your being and encounters that have to be successfully negotiated. There are times to be in the heights where you see things from a wonderful perspective which entrances and  enhances your vision and thrills your soul. You are plummeted at times in the depths where intense trials and situations exist that calls for a firm faith and grip on life. And then there is the in-between state where indifference can set in hinder life and progress. Discern where you are and reach out for His grace and wisdom and each state can and will be dealt and coped with triumphantly. Know that you are always on a learn curve and be like Paul who affirmed: “I have learned in whatsoever state I am to be content.

SACRED SONGS

There is so much wonderful and meaningful truth in the hymns that call to be resounded again. I reckon that Satan and the hosts of darkness do not like to hear them expressed with such faith and gusto, hence the silencing of them. They fully affirm the fullness of Christ, His Saviourhood and Lordship in a manner that is exhilarating and uplifting to the believer. This song is a case in point. How I re-call singing it in my early years of Christian experience, and what a spiritual revelation and lift in the course of singing it! Meditate on the words today, and if you can, sing it out until it sweeps over your whole being in a magnificent way.

Grant Colfax Tullar was born August 5, 1869, in Bolton, Connecticut. He was named after the American President Ulysses S. Grant and Vice President Schuyler Colfax. After the American Civil War, his father was disabled and unable to work, having been wounded in the Battle of Antietam. Tullar’s mother died when he was just two years old so Grant had no settled home life until he became an adult. Yet from a life of sorrow and hardship he went on to bring joy to millions of Americans with his songs and poetry.

As a child, he received virtually no education or religious training. He worked in a woolen mill and as a shoe clerk. The last Methodist camp meeting in Bolton was in 1847. Tullar became a Methodist at age 19 at a camp meeting near Waterbury in 1888.

He then attended the Hackettstown Academy in New Jersey. He became an ordained Methodist minister and pastored for a short time in Dover, Delaware. For 10 years he was the song leader for evangelist Major George A. Hilton. Even so, in 1893 he also helped found the well-known Tullar-Meredith Publishing Company in New York, which produced church and Sunday school music. Tullar composed many popular hymns and hymnals.

Saved by His Wonderful Grace

1/. When in his beauty my Saviour I see, When I shall look on his face,
Tongue cannot tell of the joy it will be,Saved by his wonderful grace.

Refrain:
Saved, saved, Saved by his wonderful grace; Saved, saved, Granted in heaven a place;
Saved, saved, Saved by his wonderful grace! Glory to Jesus, I know I am saved, Saved by his wonderful grace!

2/.  Long I had wandered in pathways of sin, Often his grace had I spurned;
Often resisted his striving within, Ere to the Saviour I turned. [Refrain]

3/.  How I rejoice that Salvation is free, That I was not turned away;
How I rejoice that my Saviour I’ll see, Where I may praise him for aye. [Refrain]

QUOTES TO NOTE – CHANG

For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something – Steve Jobs

DAILY MEDITATIONS

IN PERFECT CONTROL – Matthew 21: 1-11

This was to be a very important day in the career of Christ when He was to ride into Jerusalem upon the colt, the foal of an ass. It was to be a personal triumph in every sense of the word as the crowds came out with immense jubilation to hail Him as King. In doing this that day He was fulfilling what the prophets had spoken concerning Him and this was always the commitment of Christ – Zechariah 9: 9; Isaiah 62: 11. The event was to be both a memorable and remarkable occasion.

He did not choose a royal charger or steed for the occasion but a humble donkey that had never been ridden before. It was not with pride of arrogance that he assumed this role as He rode into this ancient and holy city. He showed His complete mastery of the creature that day. The animal had never been broken in but it immediately recognized its Creator and Ruler. This donkey was obedient and was submissive all the way through, in spite of the noise and the occasion.

The Lord would seek to be the One that has the absolute and perfect reins over every aspect of your life. He has need of you so that He might demonstrate His masterly care and rule so that He might ride in spiritual triumph everyday and in every way over you. There is to be no resistance, no bucking and fighting, just a sweet resignation so that He might manifest His sovereignty and authority. He wants to share with you the glory of His conquest and for you to know that He is the only person worthy to be King in and over your nature and behaviour.
