DAILY MESSAGE

Live in faith today and do not allow fear, doubt or worry any entrance or foothold in your mind and heart. Ponder upon the rich legacy of promises the LORD has given in His Word for your meditation and fulfilment, so divine assurance will enter and take control over your thoughts and feelings. He has called you to be a big believer and to enjoy the vast assurances of His Word. Instead of being robbed by Satan, begin to possess all that the LORD has promised. Just as Israel had a Promised Land to inherit, so have you. You are not to exist subject to defeat or disaster but to discover that God your Father is well able to do for you all that he has guaranteed, so spend today in His Word and allow the Holy Sprit to quicken these promises to your being.

SACRED SONGS

This is a great hymn of desire and spiritual aspiration regularly sung in times past. Not much is known as to its author but the expressions certainly are deep expressions to know the LORD in a greater manner. One can just imagine that this could be based on the experience of Peter, James and John taken up the mount to be given a choice unveiling of Christ. For Peter, it was an unforgettable time that made genuine impact on his life. There are such moments for you as you reach out to the LORD.

Jesus, Lead me Up the Mountain

1/. Jesus, lead me up the mountain, Where the whitest robes are seen,
Where the saints can see the fountain, Where the pure are keeping clean.

Refrain

Bring me higher up the mountain Into fellowship with Thee,

In Thy light I see the fountain And the blood is cleansing me.

2/. Higher up, where light increases, Rich above all earthly good,
Where the life of sinning ceases, Where the Spirit comes in floods — Refrain

3/. Lead me higher, nothing dreading, In the race to never stop,
In Thy footsteps keep me treading, Give me grace to reach the top.

4/. Make me better, make me purer, Keep me where the fire refines,
Where the breath of God is sweeter, Where the brightest glory shines.

QUOTES TO NOTE – THANKFUL

I was given such a great gift. It’s a miracle that never stops amazing me and reminding me to give thanks, every day. Having a wife and daughter gives me a lot more purpose. I was much more selfish before, but now I think about what kind of role model I’ll be. I just want to be a better man. Jake Owen

DAILY MEDITATIONS

SUPREME COMMITMENT – Matthew 26: 31-46 

It has to be said, life was a tremendous challenge to Christ all the way through. He was not given an easy role and work to fulfil. There was the readiness to accept the demand of the incarnation, leaving the divine form to be invested with a human one. The humble and exacting requirement of life at Nazareth, the claims that were on His ministry, besides being wholly responsible for the welfare of twelve men had been His lot. At this crisis moment, there came the issue of the betrayal, the knowledge that Peter would deny Him and then the seeming indifference of the three he had taken into the Garden of Gethsemane with Him.

He had not failed in His commitment at any point. But now the trial, suffering and Cross were just ahead. It all seems to overtake Him in this sacred place and would overwhelm Him. The demands would be very high and the issue had to be resolved. There was a great inner battle going on at this hallowed spot. Prayer was the only answer to such an ordeal. He prayed the issue through and expressed His total conviction and dedication – “Father, not My will but Yours be done” – vv39, 42, 43.

This incident reveals the example that Christ has laid down for all of His disciples. It is up to each one of us to adopt this principle in word and action. The important thing for you to achieve is the will of God. This may well entail taking the path of suffering to achieve the blessedness of others. As you seek the face of God, may you have His holy resolve in you to commit yourself to whatever His claims may be at this time.  Be ready to surrender to His will because this is the reason why you have been brought into His Kingdom – “Your will be done . . .”
