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 is ‘consecrate’, a spiritual reality to be entered into if one is to know God to live a true life and extract the best from life. One of the vital and glorious considerations of life is the knowledge that you are demonstrating a genuine commitment to Christ which is real and fulfilling.

CONSECRATE– TO BE SET APART UNTO GOD – Genesis 12:1-5

The patriarch, Abraham, was one of the first to exemplify the issue of consecration when he was getting on in life. He heard the voice of God at 75 calling upon him to do something different and extraordinary. The Lord had told him to get up and move out of the place where he was settled and living, step out in faith and trust and go to the place of His appointment. Would he be big enough to respond wholeheartedly and surrender himself to this mission? Consecrate means to give oneself to someone and something in complete abandonment.

It would seem that he was ready for this and without due hesitation he goes ahead to fulfil heaven’s will. No longer was Abraham to be in charge of his future and destiny. All strings attached to the past was severed as he stepped out in love, faith and obedience to achieve what Jehovah had in mind for him. He was to become a trendsetter and so make known that the way forward to anything great and noteworthy was in total devotion to the Lord.

Israel and Church history both underline the truth and fact that consecration is an absolute necessity if one is know the favour of God and to accomplish significant things. The Lord, it seems, works primarily to bring about willingness in those who would become something for Him. May be at this hour this is what is taking place in your being and life? There is often a battle before the complete surrender of the will to be and do as He desires! Do not hesitate. Find out His destiny at this hour and then consecrate yourself to Him and His purpose,

SACRED SONGS

O Thou Who Camest from  Above

This was composed an written by a man, Charles Wesley, whose heart was inflamed by the fire an passion of God for His kingdom. Having been ignited by the Holy Spirit with Christ and the Christian message he wanted it to burn and break forth amongst the whole of Christendom. This song has found its way an expression throughout a number of Christian generations an communities and been the means of creating a new move of God amongst His people in Gospel witness an enterprise. May be you need to catch the fire and flame again!

1/. O Thou who camest fro above The pure celestial fire to impart,

Kindle a flame of sacred love  On the mean altar of my heart.

2/. There let it for Thy glory burn With inextinguishable blaze;

An trembling to its source return, In humble prayer an fervent praise.

3/. Jesus, confirm my heart’s desire To work, and speak, and think for Thee;

Still let me guard the holy fire, And still stir up Thy gift in me

4/. Ready for all Thy perfect will, My acts of faith an love repeat,

Till death Thy endless mercies seal, An make the sacrifice complete.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A WORD FROM GOD – Psalm 81

It is apparent from v5 and what is then spoken that this is none other than the voice of the Lord speaking and affirming very important truths for His people to take notice of. Examining the contents one has to confess that it is a word from God. He is desirous that His people will know and develop a listening ear to Himself, then observe what he has to say. This is His plea in v13 “But oh, that my people would listen to me! Oh that Israel would follow Me, walking in my paths.” One senses the deep passion and longing of God regarding His own people.

After making clear that He had been the One that had saved them out of Egypt and relieved the heavy burden that had been upon them, He told them that He had ever sought to prove their faith and character. They were to be under no illusions with regard to His dealings with them. It was imperative that they choose Him as Lord in their midst and dispose of all idols. If they pursued the right course with Him then they would be freed from their enemies and evil and enjoy the abundance of His presence and blessings. It would be the beginning of a blessed era.

The Lord ever seeks to gain a hearing especially amongst those who profess to know Him. His personal and word of directive would come to you today, making clear the ways that He wants you to adopt in life. In particular, make sure that He is absolute Lord and Monarch of your life, faith and conduct. As this obtains, you will surely know His favour and there will flow from His good hand untold benefits that will totally enrich every day. Your obedience will yield great returns.
