DAILY MESSAGE

There is a time for you to look backward over the past to see the road the Lord has brought you along, noting the blessings experienced, the lessons learned, the progress made. There is a moment, too, that you should take stock of the present, to see where you are, what you have become. Be grateful for what has been wrought of a positive nature and be encouraged. But now is the opportunity to look at and face the future and to do so with divine optimism. Know that the Lord is with and for you and stands by waiting to afford needful guidance, sure provision, answers to prayer. He who has been All-Sufficient, in the former years,is still up to seeing you complete the journey. Begin to anticipate at the outset, therefore, that which is before. It is going to be owned and blessed by God your Father. Happy New Year to One and All!

SACRED SONGS

Marching on in the Light of God

This song is to find us in a strong, spiritual and military mood. We are ready to face whatever and whoever is before us in the wisdom, strength and assistance of our heavenly leader, Christ, supported by the angelic forces. There is no need for us to wilt, wither and fail because we are on the wining side, nevertheless we have to contend for the cause of Christ in these evil days. In the knowledge that we are almost at the closure of the contest the more reason we should move on with courage, determination and expectation. We follow a great Leader and He ensures the ultimate of the battle.

Author: Robert Johnson

19th Century Born: Scotland. Pseudonym: Captain Johnson. Johnson worked for the Salvation Army (SA) in Scotland and in London. A singer and violinist, some of his songs appeared in the SA’s War Cry and Musical Salvationist, 1882-7.

1/. Marching on in the light of God, Marching on, I am marching on;
Up the path that the Master trod, Marching, marching on.

Refrain

A robe of white, a crown of gold, A harp, a home, a mansion fair,
A victor’s palm, a joy untold, Are mine when I get there.

For Jesus is my Saviour, He’s washed my sins away, Paid my debt on calvary’s mountain,

Happy in His dying love, singing all the day, I’m living, yes, I’m living in the fountain.

2/. Marching on through the hosts of sin, Marching on I am marching on;
Vict’ry’s mine while I’ve Christ within, Marching, marching on – Refrain

3/. Marching on while the sceptics sneer, Marching on, I am marching on;
Perfect love casteth out all fear, Marching, marching on – Refrain

4/. Marching on with the flag unfurled, Marching on, I am marching on;
Preaching Christ to the dying world Marching, marching on – Refrain

QUOTES TO NOTE – FORGIVENESS

Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it – Mark Twain

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A RETURN TO USEFULNESS – 2 Kings 6: 1-7

There was a need to enlarge the premises for the school of the prophets. This was a healthy sign of growth and development. Elisha headed the group as its leader and so they sought his accord and presence in this project. He was pleased to respond in this venture and went with them down to the riverside to chop down the trees for the new building. He was not too busy that he could not be alongside of them as they sought to fulfil the vision. Alas! In the process, as one laid his axe to a tree its loose head flew off and landed in the water. He was distressed because it was not his property and so solicited the help of the man of God.

It required a miracle and Elisha performed one in causing the axe head to swim.  What an amazing sight to witness this piece of iron surface and then float! Not only was it restored and an embarrassing situation saved, but also the instrument could be returned to use. The young prophet could once again become industrious and help in the great purpose of expansion. His time and energy was put to employment for further service in a noble cause. Instead of standing around grieving he would be happily engaged in a loving labour with the knowledge that he had a testimony to a miracle in his life and work.

Perhaps it may be that once you were greatly involved in sacred mission but something has happened that has brought a halt and sense of disappointment or despair. Something of major note has been lost and closed down your work for God. The gift you once had apparently has disappeared and now a sense of frustration and failure exists. Christ your Lord and Master is an expert at restoring lost factors. Why not implore Him, as He is near by to renew you and your giftings so that you can return to real enterprising work for Him and His kingdom?
