IN MESSAGE

To be bountifully blessed by the LORD, there are things that are to be born and developed in you. There not only has to be a dynamic faith in His promises and power, there must be a genuine care and commitment to lovingly serve others in a humble fashion. Like the Good Samaritan, to aid those who have seemingly fallen foul of people and things that has left them in a helpless condition. As you tenderly minister to these people you will discover the grace of His presence and assistance and see broken and bruised lives healed and blessed. Open your eyes to see these folk, your heart to be moved with divine compassion and miracles will occur that will bring glory to God, relief to others and real blessing to you.

WISE SAYINGS

“If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all2- Isaiah 7:9 – NIV

If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything, and the best person and commitment for you to make your stand for Christ and the Faith.              

IN ADDITION SPRITUAL GIFTEDNESS

In and through Christ, God the Father has blessed you with the Holy Spirit who has come inside of you to add to your life. He comes to produce both fruit and gift and both are purpose to make you Christ-like. In 1 Corinthians 12 Paul reveals that there are at least none gifts to be known within the Christian community in its life and witness. The appeal within the chapter is to ‘desire spiritual gifts’ – v31 “But covet earnestly the best gifts”. The gifts are planned to make the Christian powerful and influential in ministry and service.

“to another divers kinds of tongues” – v10. This is the beautiful capacity to speak to God in varied languages that edify the personal spirit and edify it in a dynamic manner. It is mainly a private gift to a Spirit-filled believer to converse with God in a unique fashion that inspires the inwards condition, causing God to be sensed and be increasingly real. It is for use mainly in one’s inter-relations with heaven and adds a dynamic to the person of immense worth. Of course, it can be used along with its sister gift publically in the interpretation of tongue. Seek this beneficial gift that will bring so much of God to you and cause you to appreciate you can live and serve Him in a powerful manner. Paul did state: “I speak in tongues more than you all” – 1 Corinthians 14:18. It served as an advantage to him so why not you?

DAILY MEDITATIONS

IMPORTANCE OF COVENANT – Jeremiah 11

At this point the Lord stressed how vital it was to keep a covenant agreement. When two parties have made a righteous contract it is absolutely essential that it be honoured from both sides. The Lord had entered into a sacred pledge with this people as He embraced them as His by assuring them that if they honoured Him and His laws then they would know the rich blessing of possessing the Promised Land. He would see to it that they would live in prosperity and peace and safeguard their interests at all times in all things. It could not be improved upon.

They had acquiesced with and solemnly affirmed their intention of being loyal and obedient to Him. At the outset, the Lord made it clear and plain to them that if they did not keep their word then they would bring a curse upon themselves. The Lord reminded them of this factor when He said: “Cursed be the man that obeyeth not the words of this covenant” – v3. Whilst He had been faithful to His side, the nation had done its own thing and paid no attention to the terms of tenure in the land. It was inevitable therefore it pay the penalty of disobedience, which meant exile.

Christians must know that in salvation they have entered into holy agreement with God through Jesus Christ. Salvation means accepting the terms offered by God in Christ to deliver from sin, self and Satan’s power. It also requires making sure that Christ is Lord of the life and that from henceforth there is total commitment to Him and His plan for life. Faith and obedience are still keynote factors and God’s blessing is only guaranteed to those who reveal such. As in the words of the hymn: “To be happy in Jesus, Is to trust and obey.” Keep your side of the covenant!
