WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

Thought for the Day follows an instructive theme for everyday of the Week. To be able to achieve and succeed in daily living we require strength. One may have all the ‘know-how’ but have little or no strength to perform and do. It is imperative that you have the life and energy physically, spiritually, morally, mentally etc., so that you see things coming to pass that will gladden your days. The Scriptures are present to guide you into knowing how to know strength of an incredible nature be yours to achieve.

STRENGTH – To Overcome the Greatest of Conflicts – Hebrews 12: 1- 3

Hebrews 11 gives a great list of people who knew what it was to receive and express strength in their day and generation amidst immense trials.. .It says of them that ‘out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight’ – v34. But then attention is turned in chapter 12 to Christ who knew what it was to manifest exceptional strength in His conflict with Satan, sin and suffering. His final hours saw Him in great natural weakness but at the same time exuding immense power and enduring until He had won. His final words were: It is finished’ and “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit’. They are the words of a Victor.

The whole of Christendom must learn to look to Him as its example and draw from Him His reserves of life and courage that enables to complete and register conquest. No matter what lies before, those who profess Christ must discover that through His enabling presence and input they can more than answer every trying situation. Church history is replete with story after story of ordinary Christians sensing the extraordinary inflow from Christ and witnessing amazing triumphs.

The positive assurance that was in the apostle must become an integral part of your faith language. He said and meant it: “I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me” – Phil 4: 13. Impotent people can be inspired and reinforced with the might of heaven and more than deal with all that would challenge. The greatest conflicts can be turned into the grandest of conquests.

SACRED SONGS

I’m Pressing on the Upward Way,

The real strength of Christian life and living is having a clear vision and to keep on whatever happens to secure it. Much occurs to try and prevent is coming to pass, but Christians must learn to press on and through until the objectives are secured. At, the conclusion it wilkl prove to be that it has been worth all the effort commitment pain etc.

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert’s Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill. However, Mr. Oatman only serves as a local preacher.

1/. I’m pressing on the upward way,  New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I’m onward bound, “Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

Refrain:
Lord, lift me up and let me stand, By faith, on Heaven’s tableland,
A higher plane than I have found; Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.

2/. My heart has no desire to stay  Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where these abound, My constant  aim, is higher ground – refrain

3/. Beyond the mist I fain would rise, To rest beneath unclouded skies,

Above earth’s turmoil peace is found  By those who dwell on higher ground – refrain

4/. I long to scale the utmost height Though rough the way, and hard the fight,

My song, while climbing, shall resound, Lord, lead me on to higher ground – refrain

5/. Lord, lead me up the mountain side I dare not climb without my Guide;

And, heaven gained, I’ll gaze around, With grateful heart from higher ground – refrain

DAILY MEDITATIONS

ON THE THRONE – Isaiah 24

A distinct prophetic revelation is given of the Lord mounting the throne of Jerusalem, the Holy City – v23. The previous verses are all about the Lord dealing severe judgment on the whole earth and upon the fallen angels and the ultimate disclosure and sight is of Him ascending the seat of authority in the royal and divine city. All that is to take place by Him in the way of punishment upon the nations of the world, against the wicked and sinister powers of evil, is the result of His sovereign decision and action. There will come the hour when He will show who is the One who is really in charge of proceedings.

There will be the superb display of His majestic authority as He manifests His regal position as the Head of the Nations. His headship and leadership will be undisputed and unrivalled as He exercises control. All leaders, especially those of the chosen race, will express their allegiance to Him in worship, faith and obedience. This is something to look forward to at the end of time when He displays all authority and power. The revelation is purposed to give real hope to the people of God in the final outworking of their destiny.

For those who comprise Christendom, there is not the glorious waiting for the fulfilment of the prophecy. Already we have vision of the glorified situation of Christ on His throne in the heavens. When He ascended on high it was to take His rightful place at the right hand of the Father where He evidences His authority within and over the Christian community. He is now Lord and all Christian leaders and members must learn to live under His Lordship. Make sure He is your King!
