THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Thought for the Day follows an instructive theme for everyday of the Week. We now turn our thoughts to another important factor if there is to be positive dealing with God. The word I ‘faith’, but it is more than word to be known. This is a crucial factor if there is to be fruitful and worthwhile relation with an for God. Nothing of any worth will be known or accomplished without a vibrant and close accord with Him in this all essential.

FAITH: INSPIRED, ENERGIZED AND EXECUTED IN AND BY DIVINE PROMISES – 2 Cor 2:20-22; Romans 4;17-21

It is important that every Christian believer discovers one of the real purposes of the Bible. Within both Testaments are assurances given by God of the things He plans to do for those who are in an agreeable bond an relationship with Him. He would enrich them with sacred guarantees that He will bring to pass in their lives as they live in trust and obedience. Abraham is set up as a prime example of an individual who received from God definite pledges of what would be done for him of an incredible nature. And God was true to His words of promise!

Christ, too, sought to teach His disciples that it was important to believe God’s promises especially when they prayed. Not only were they to have faith in but the faith of God an when they prayed to truly believe answers would be forthcoming in line with what ha been guaranteed. He declared: “What things soever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them” – mark 11:24. You must be  conversant with what God the Father has spoken to you as His son and begin to believe an ask accordingly.

Paul does not leave the issue in doubt as he writes to the Christian believer at Corinth. He states: “For all the promises of God in Him are always yes an so we utter the Amen (so let it be), unto the glory of Go by us” – 2 Cor 2:20. Do not stagger in unbelief but start to lay hold of God’s assurances an let them lay hold of you. Enter into your legacy by faith and begin to see all the good and great things God wills to do for you, here and now, besides eternity!! Be inspired, energized and blessed by the promises of God!

SACRED SONGS

We Never nee d be Vanquished

It is imperative for each Christian to live in constant victory over self, sin, Satan and all kind of conditions. There are different contests and conflicts to be confronted, but in the strength an might of Christ, His Word and Spirit one has the supreme advantage. Chrit was a sovereign winner an so every saint can be, too. So in your battles know that you were born into Christ’s kingdom to overcome. on all occasions against every evil force and foe.

1/. We never need be vanquished, we never need give in,

though waging war with Satan,  and compassed round by sin.

Temptations will beset us, allurements oft assail, but in the name of Jesus  We shall, we must prevail.

Refrain

Victory in Jesu’s Name, Victory our hearts proclaim Victory, glorious victory

2/. God wills not that His people  by sin enthralled should be,

but that their lives, as ransomed,  be lives of victory;  and so at our disposal

He places all His power,  that we from its resources  may draw in danger’s hour.

refrain

3/. Herein is hid the secret of an all-glorious life  whereby we conquer Satan,

and rise above sin’s strife.

Abiding in the Saviour,  self prostrate in the dust, we live to do His bidding  In glad perpetual trust – refrain

4/. We in ourselves are nothing,  a small and feeble host,  nor have we aught of prowess  wherein to make our boast.

Our stronghold is Christ Jesus,  His grace alone we plead,  His name our shield and banner,  Himself, just all we need – refrain

QUOTES TO NOTE – respect

A child who is allowed to be disrespectful to his parents will not have true respect for anyone – Billy Graham

DAILY MEDITATIONS

SOURCE OF STRENGTH – Psalm 59

The psalmist knew one particular aspect of the attributes of His God: He was the God of strength and that His strength was available to him. In v5 he says, “O LORD God Almighty, the God of Israel.” Elsewhere He is named “the Strength of Israel.” All power, life and energy belong to Him and there is nothing that He cannot do. Whatever the demand may be, He is never thwarted or frustrated but is able to perform in magnificent manner. David could affirm, “You are my Strength” and “O my Strength” in vv9, 17. He had learned to look to the Lord daily and continually to strengthen him especially when there was a real call for it.

In the context of the Psalm and his experience at that time he needed an inflow of strength. He faced the possibility of a vicious attack from a formidable foe. Many enemies appeared to be on his doorstep that would have desired his removal. Their threat and malice was enough to weaken him in every way. He could have allowed the spirit of fear to denude him of his vital spiritual strength. This was not to be because the Lord was there to reveal Himself and also to impart all the courage David required to deal with all that stood against him.

Today you may feel at a low ebb, weakened by many confrontations and conflicts. Be reminded once again that the Lord is the means by which vision and strength is renewed. Pull aside from the situation and take time to muse on His great love and power. Allow Him to vitalise and energise your inward being. He who sustains a universe by His almighty power will likewise come inside of you and pour in all that is necessary for your complete renewal. Ponder Isaiah 40:28-31 once again.
