IN MESSAGE

There are many incidents and experiences that would seek to crush and make you sense an inadequacy to step out to perform as your LORD directs and wills. Having given faith and instructions, the Lord is aware of the fact that your inveterate foe, Satan, would do within his power to negate this positive condition. Your first task is to resist him and make him aware that you purpose to fulfil heaven’s designs. The assurance holds good: “Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” Emulate your Master. Do not give him any room to operate so he has no ground whatsoever to work on. Instead of being crushed, crush your adversary so you are a real threat to him and you ascend into the choice work and service the LORD has ordained for you. The conflict becomes the stepping stones to immense victory.

WISE SAYINGS

“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord your God, He it is that doth go with you; He will not fail you nor forsake you” – Deut 31:6

Do the thing you fear and death of fear is certain. It is a paralysing force that seeks to make you impotent within. Through the omnipotence of God and His promises to you, this dictating power can be expelled and cease its rule.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

The LORD affirms to you, “Behold I make all things new” and that includes you. Nothing gives Him more pleasure that transforming people into new creatures so that they are able to live, move perform to perfection and satisfaction. Paul said:”If any man be in Christ he is a new creation . . .” – 2 Cor 5:21, Fresh, heavenly and dynamic aspirations now exist and prevail with the possibilities of immense achievement for God and His kingdom. Instead of merely going through the motions, one is girded and galvanized with the wisdom and strength of the Lord to accomplish things that are of a permanent and eternal worth and order that will be duly awarded by Him. The inward drive takes you forward to succeed in the task that is appointed you from Him and concludes in conquest.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

UNDER HIS CARE – Psalm 95

The psalm, in the main, is a wonderful song of worship to the Lord. He is filled with inward delight and exuberance as He contemplates the Lord in His supreme position and majesty. No one is His equal as He is the great God the great King above all gods – v3. Because He is the Maker of all He is the Owner of all. He has a right to be glorified in the light of His sovereignty and amazing works. The choice thing that is mentioned, however, is the fact that “He is our God. We are the people He watches over, the sheep under His care” – v7.

Israel had known what it was to have the God of the universe taking special notice of them and looking intently over their affairs. He had selected them as His own Flock and throughout their history had shown His kindness in ministering into all of their situations so they lacked nothing. His provision, protection and guidance had been manifested on a large scale. In Egypt, the wilderness and Canaan there had been a constant demonstration of His loving oversight. Living under His watchful eye and beneficent hand they had prospered and been richly blessed.

Those whom Christ has redeemed and renewed can equally know the watchfulness and concern of the Lord as the Shepherd not only of their souls but the One that is committed to ministering into all of all life’s circumstances. The Lord knows who His sheep are and has assured that He will ever be with them to see that they are catered for. Each sheep must reflect Him at all times and be a testimony to His love and ministry. Rejoice and sing today because He is your Shepherd-King.

Just to let you kow I am taking a break for a few days holiday!!!

IN MESSAGE

One of the immense privileges and joys in life is that of being an encourager. There are those who served in this and did an excellent task in coming alongside others to be a friend, inspiration and aid them in their difficult situations. For instance, Joshua was a real quality person alongside Moses, Ruth with Naomi, Elisha and Elijah and Barnabas with Paul and so on. As you walk with the Lord and work for Him He will give you opportunity to draw near someone and become a real boost and strength in difficult situations. There is some sense of delight when you have been in right place at the right time standing with someone and performing a quiet, invaluable service. Do not let today go by without rendering this ministry.

WISE SAYINGS

“The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat” – Proverbs 13:4

A lazy disposition and life produces nothing and is a disgrace. It is worthless. The contrast is to be desired and aimed for. Be industrious and it will yield immense returns that will be satisfying and fulfilling.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

“Blessed is the man whom you chasten, O LORD, and teachest him out of your Law” – Psalm 94:13. There is no better or greater disciplinarian than the LORD and there is np better means by which His instructs – the Book of the Law, the Scriptures. To have a life, character and work that is to prove commendable and profitable, one must be taught by the LORD and from His inspired Word. Your person and future is bound now and eternally in who and what you listen to. The LORD neither forces His attentions on any one nor does He impose His Word. Wise people make it their primary business to know Him and to learn all they can from Him and His Word so that they make the grade.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

DIVINE JUSTICE – Psalm 94

The God of the Bible is a God of justice. He is the true and absolute Judge that will mete out justice and judgment with regard to all men and all need to be aware of the fact and not be presumptuous of life.  It does look at times as if the wicked do get away with their evil as they arrogantly proceed in their deeds. They seemingly can do everything that is contrary to all that is good, true and right without any punishment. They even gloat over the fact and consider God as irrelevant. If He exists then He is not bothered about their sinful behaviour.

It is obvious that the psalmist has deep convictions on this issue and opens out: “O Lord, the God to whom vengeance belongs, O God of vengeance, let your glorious justice be seen!” – v1. He knows that in the long run those who go down the track of wickedness will meet their Judge and will be rewarded accordingly. The Lord does meet in righteousness those who seek to do what is right. He disciplines and corrects them in life so that they do not fall into the category of the wicked – vv12, 13. Better to live under the chastening hand of God and be straightened out in life now than to experience the full terror of His wrath in punishment at the end.

Things do not appear to have changed on the world scene as wicked people look to get away with their awful and obnoxious deeds. At times, it does not seem God nor divine justice exists. No one must be deceived with regard to this. In His timing and schedule God will bring the wicked to book and it will be a horrendous and sad moment for them. There will be no escape from Him who has observed them and their ways and has kept account. If you are being corrected by the Lord, rejoice and trust. Better to be and live right more than anything else before God.

IN MESSAGE

Although you may at times be in a state of ignorance as to the way ahead, this is not so with your LORD. He is ever aware of your exact situation, where you have come from and the next stage of the journey. He would always have you in a state of rest where you simply day by day learn to look to His for His guidance and providence. He has numerous and various means of making clear His will and as you quietly rest in His omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence, all will work continually good for you. Even in those things that are seemingly problematic He turns to immense advantage and progress. You are placed in a very blessed and profitable position. Nothing could be better.

WISE SAYINGS

“The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness” – Proverbs 12:2.

Blessed is he who, having nothing to say, refrains from giving worthy evidence of the fact. It is both wise and good to learn to say less and mean more.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

Jesus taught this great truth in sacred promise: “If you can believe, all things are possible” – Mark 9:23. He has never been in any doubt whatsoever as to His own capabilities or that of His Father. He lived and operated in the sure knowledge that anything could happen no matter how incredible. He seeks to lift the knowledge and mind-set of those who are His disciples into this thing and working. Because they were now in the family of God they could anticipate unbelievable things to happen as they prayed believed and spoke because of the role the heavenly Father would take in their daily lives. They are now to live and work in a brand new perspective and order. The kingdom of God was now to direct matters and this was one of the delights of kingdom life in evidence – amazing things regularly occurring. Take your cue from Christ!

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A HEART-FELT PRAYER – Lamentations 5

In concluding the writings of Jeremiah, we finish up with a heart-felt prayer he made to God with regard to his people. He was sure with respect to the Lord as to His continual interest even though it looked as if they had been forsaken – “But Lord you remain the same for ever! Your throne continues from generation to generation” – v19. Deep within his being he knew that God had not cast off His people although from deep troubled circumstances they were in made it appear otherwise. By prayer he could pour out his being to Him knowing he had His ear and heart.

Two things are very striking within the prayer: he asked the Lord to remember everything that had happened and to restore and bring Israel back to Him – vv1, 21. These were uppermost thoughts expressed which he felt keenly about. The Lord was fully aware of what he and his people had experienced because He had brought it to pass. Also, He had planned a total renewal and restoration later on as the spiritual lesson was learned. In no way was He going to allow things to remain as they were. Full restoration had been purposed and it would come to pass. This prayer would be answered according to the schedule of the Lord.

Heart-felt praying should be in evidence by God’s people today in the light of the horrendous evils that are all around. Prayer in particular ought to be truly expressed by the Christian community for the Church that it will be renewed by the Lord so that it can serve in the way it should, in the power and blessing of the Holy Spirit. Do you give time to this vital exercise and do you intercede in such a way that the Lord knows you really mean it? Give yourself in seeking the Lord on behalf of others and the awful situations they find themselves in.

IN MESSAGE

There is ever a need for you to keep your antenna up so that you can receive from the LORD the apt word and directive that will answer every situation and circumstance you have to confront. There is no need for you to be in difficulty or disarray because whatever the next situation you are called to face, whatever hurdle to surmount. He will provide both the wisdom and strength to navigate successfully. Be encouraged by the fact that He has successfully the mission and ministries those who have proceed you and you will not be a failure in His hands. The course is upward and forward and will bring the results that will gladden glorify Him and afford delight to you of a permanent character.

WISE SAYINGS

“Do all things without murmurings and disputing” – Philippians 2:14.

A drowning man does not complain about the size of a life preserver. He is both glad and grateful whatever the means by which he is rescued from a threatened situation.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

“I am the Almighty God; walk before Me, and be perfect” – Genesis 17:1. As Abraham lived out his life before the LORD, he would discover that he had alongside him one that could and would do anything for Him. In His submission, faith and obedience he could happily live and make progress each day in all of his doings. It was an immense advantage to have the backing and blessing of the Most High. He would never be in difficulty because the One superintending His affairs was never be in a situation he could not positively respond. As you simply seek to live and please the Lord at all times and in all things, there is no need to fear the future in any way.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

THE LOSS OF GLORY – Lamentations 4

Possibly the worst scenario for Jeremiah to gaze upon was not the Holy City and the demolition of the Temple, bad as that was; rather, it was seeing the dreadful state of the people. Much of what he had to record here denotes their shocking condition. He describes it in powerful terms. In v1 he gives quite a vision and insight and shows how they had changed from a state of glory and preciousness into a one of humiliation and a cheapened condition – “How the gold has lost its lustre! Even the finest gold has become dull. The sacred gemstones lie scattered in the street!”

For him, there was nothing worse that seeing his people losing their God given distinctiveness. They should have been a holy, separated people with all the tokens of God’s grace and glory expressed in their faith, lives and situations. All of them should have expressed the quality of their God in their creed and conduct but sadly there was nothing to distinguish them from other nations. They were an utter disgrace and the divine judgment that followed reflected their disgraced situation. Losing the glory of God they had lost their true glory.

There should be something different in those who profess to belong to God and have been born again of His Spirit. The more they associate with the Lord the more of His distinct grace and majesty should be displayed thus manifesting their virtue and value. All have been called in Christ to bear and reflect His glorious likeness and image thus depicting His worth. You have been called to be the Lord’s representative on earth wherever you are and go, His quality nature must shine through. Be His gold and precious gemstone in society showing His glory.

IN MESSAGE

You live in a passing world, There is nothing really of worth to set your heart upon that you can take into the next apart from your LORD. It is important to discern and note this. Learn to discover and set your affection on Him and the things that are and from above and you will not be disappointed. You can discover those treasures that are not of a material and soulish character and are fleeting. You will be arrested and satisfied with what the LORD will bring of note before you to pursue and there will be no sorrow attached to them. In fact, delight will be intensified as you sense that your interests and pursuits of the highest quality. They are but a foretaste of what is yet to be on grander scale.

WISE SAYINGS

“He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot” – Proverbs 9:7

The only fool bigger than the person who knows it all is the person who argues with him. Wisdom is revealed in keeping your mouth shut in the presence of fools, those who do not really want to know and learn. Do not waste your breath or time!

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

“The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over you with joy” – Zephaniah 3:17. Be conscious of this great truth and fact: the LORD stands supreme over all creation and is with you overseeing you and your affairs. He takes great pleasure and delight in those who are is, watching over them in protection and to minister constantly to their demands. He not only sings over His saints with joy but finds immense rapture in doing things for them. As you delight yourself in Him today you will know the overflow of his rich bounty and blessing in the midst of it. Today is to be a joyful occasion for Him and for you. Learn to abound in His joy!

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A MINDFUL CONSIDERATION – Lamentations 3

There was no doubt that the prophet was full of thought wi that had been of a testing and torturous order. In his contemplation, he felt that he had experienced a lot of hard treatment from the Lord (see vv1-20). There had been the facing of unbelievable pressures and ordeals that he believed had come from the Lord that had wounded him. What was the best way to handle it all?

Instead of dwelling on all the things that had gone wrong, a new, inspired line of approach was engaged in. His mind was turned to a real positive spiritual factor in relation to the Lord. There flowed into his mind for consideration the ‘faithfulness of the Lord.’ It dawned upon him that the Lord could have wiped his people completely out because of their evil but in His love and mercy a remnant had been saved ready for a new beginning. Suddenly his whole being was taken up with the fact that both he and many others had been preserved. He could rejoice that he had been a recipient along with others of the Lord’s great kindness.

It is always a theme worthy of thought and mediation. The faithfulness of the Lord is to be a real stimulus within life. Every day and in all situations the Lord would manifest and minister His love and kindness to His own. He has been faithful in the sending of His Son, Jesus Christ, to prove the constancy of His immense love not only in saving but in keeping and blessing you in every way. It is stated: “His mercies begin afresh each day” – v23. Expect to taste anew today the rich expression of that love in your life.

IN MESSAGE

One of the things that Christ affirmed was “Never to lose heart” especially in relation to wholesome pursuits worth obtaining. Having set your objective on something precious and worth possessing, do not baulk at the first hurdle and difficulty and give in. The test is to prove what is inside of you, whether you have the faith, stamina and will to succeed in your quests. You can be encouraged by reviewing people of former days who persisted and obtained their goal. For instance, Jacob thought Rachel was worth having as his wife and he was prepared to serve a long time to gain this end. Identify what the Lord has placed in you to achieve, yes, even the impossible. With prayer, commitment and continuous desire what you aim for will be yours through His favour and encouragement.

WISE SAYINGS

“He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shave destruction” – Proverbrs 13:3

A shut mouth gathers no foot. The best way of stopping yourself putting your foot it, is to keep it pwerfect control and order. Because many have not controlled the lips they have lost their lives.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

You can live beyond criticism having found your place in God and knowing He is with you to stand with and by you. He inspires with this sacred promise: No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall arise against you in judgment you shall condemn” – Isaiah 54: 17. You shall be on the front foot and not the back backing away in dismay and defeat when confrontation is before. Instead: Welcome the opportunity of standing and forth for truth and righteousness and you will discover that all heaven is marshalled behind ready to uphold you and what you stand for. All your enemies will be vanquished and you will be vindicated in every way. Even though defeat has been known before, it will be dramatically changed!

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A MISERABLE EXPERIENCE – Lamentations 2

The prophet really penned his thoughts and sentiments with regard to His people and their plight. He was not gloating because he had nothing to gloat about. Grief had certainly taken over and he felt utterly miserable as he looked around at everything and everyone. There was nothing at all to inspire or to impart some sense of pleasure. He had faced many things before that had made him somewhat depressed but this picture showed him at his lowest in spirit. In expressing himself in this way it was a kind of relief valve to his being.

All that he beheld was the result of the judgment of the Lord. – v17” But it is the just Lord who did it just as He warned. He has fulfilled the promises of disaster He made long ago He has destroyed Jerusalem without mercy and caused her enemies to rejoice over her and boast of their power.” All was in a mess and so there was good reason to mourn and weep. This man is called the weeping prophet because in ministry he spoke with a sad heart and as he saw the result of it he cannot be otherwise. It was a time to lament and show the regrettable and appalling drama.

There are appropriate seasons when all is not well, when the hand of the Lord is not present for good but ill, not in blessing but judgment. It is right and proper to be regretful and show some signs of remorse and sorrow. If the misery is of a spiritual kind that leads to amendment of life and restoration to divine fellowship, it should be welcomed. There are occasions when you need to grieve if things are not as they should be between you and the Lord. Sorrow can turn to joy if there is an honest desire to be wholly reconciled to Him.

IN MESSAGE

It is possible for you to hear from God. The reason why Christ brought you into the heavenly Family and introduced you to His Father is that He will be your Father now. Just as He experienced and enjoyed the voice of the Father in His life and work on earth, the same is now open to you. The best thing for you now is to fully enter into the Fatherhood of God, knowing He deeply cares and has the word of guidance to impart on your pilgrim pathway. Whilst reading of the experience of other believers in this and being encouraged. Know He waits to come on a regular basis to talk and communicate things that you need to know. It is not for a select few but is available you as well. It is a matter of finding time to be with Him so that He may speak those truths and things that will heighten your oneness with Him. Do not let today slip by without spending time with HIM.

WISE SAYINGS

“For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” – Matthew 12:34.

Your words are windows to your heart. This being so, make sure that in every word spoken, true light, understanding and knowledge is given so that others are positively lit up and blessed by you. The mouth does not have to be a problem, it can be a blessing and inspiration.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

“Be strong in the LORD and in power of His might. Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” – Ephesians 6: 10,11. One of the reasons that you need to be adorned and inspired by the strength of the LORD is that you can effectively deal with your spiritual opposition, the devil and his cohorts. You are not only fortified with divine energy but with the wisdom to utilize that energy against the forces that would undo you. In no way can they have the advantage over you to bring you into bondage and misery but they can be sent packing with their tail between their legs. Ever remember greater is He that is in you that he that is in the world. The power is yours is expel Him and destroy His works and bring the kingdom on heaven into manifestation with its authority.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

INDESCRIBABLE SORROW– Lamentations 1

Having predicted with divine certainty the destruction of the Holy City and the awful humiliation of its inhabitants, one would think that the prophet would have been quite smug in his spirit and attitude. After all, he had taken a lot of abuse and affliction from them because he had dared to rebuke them for their sins and spoken of the inevitable consequences. He could have had an air of superiority, pointing the accusative finger at them saying: “I told you so but you would not listen.” He could have been most hard and vindictive at this hour.

Not so. He was profoundly upset by what he beheld. There was an indescribable sorrow sensed within his being. How grieved and disturbed he felt as he looked at the whole scene! All his inward emotions were agitated and he cried out with tears streaming down his cheeks: “Is it nothing to you that pass by? Behold, see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow . .” Jeremiah gazed on the devastation all around him with brokenness of spirit. It would seem that nothing and no one could assuage his grief as he lamented over the plight of both the city and people.

In viewing a scene outside the city wall centuries later, there is the revelation of the suffering Christ on the Cross. He was the man who was terribly humiliated and mutilated by men in His day and extended on a Roman gibbet to end His life on earth. Prior to the Cross He had already been through a process of untold affliction but them He is nailed to the Cross and made a spectacle for all to gaze on and abuse. There is a call for all to look by faith to this sight and vision. His sufferings and death was for a purpose: to bring salvation for all men. His death was in order that men may be saved from their sins. Make sure you look to Him and be saved.

IN MESSAGE

One of the great qualities of life that help to advance a person in life is perseverance. To achieve anything of note and worth there has to be diligent application that does not give in when tempted to do so. The reason why so many make it for good is due to its presence. Often there are lot of mistakes make in attainment, but because determination and sheer doggedness have been present and evident, great goals have become manifest. You may well be on to something now and because of the length of time in your labour you feel like throwing the venture and project out. Don’t do so. You are right within the limit of seeing success. Within a short while you will have broken through and achieved!

WISE SAYINGS

“The righteousness of the blameless makes a straight way for them, but the wicked are brought down by their own wickedness” – Proverbs 11:5 (NIV)

Ability will enable a man to go to the top, but it takes character to keep him there. What you are in being and person in quality will enhance your profession whatever it be.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

“Fear not: stand still and see the salvation of the LORD which He will work for you today” – Exodus 15: 13. Sometimes the Lord quietly allows one to be brought into impossible circumstances, when all seems to go wrong and you could well become the victim rather than the victor. Israel had experienced major blessing in deliverance and their future looked good, better than it had ever been. They were on the move at last and then they are confronted with a gigantic obstacle, the Red Sea. Things were worsened by the fact that the Egyptians thought they had cornered them and could re-enslave and get their booty back. But it was time for miracle and it happened. God made a way where there was no way. And the same is to be your lot even today. You may be in a cul-de-sac and the way-out closed. See the salvation of the LORD for He is to intervene on your behalf. He is still up to the impossible in the 21st century!

DAILY MEDITATIONS

AN UNEXPECTED PLEASURE – Jeremiah 52

Jehoiachin’s future was dark, grim and full of foreboding. He had been taken, even though a king, as a captive to Babylon amongst the first batch exiled. He had seen his capital’s downfall, his country ransacked and people humiliated. He became an alien prisoner far from his former home, status and throne. It looked as if he would finish his days in a despised and demeaned condition. Thankfully he did not lose his life like his later successor, Zedekiah –vv9-11. However his destiny appeared to be one of an inglorious end.

But a miracle occurred after 37 years. Suddenly he was favoured and freed by the new monarch of Babylon. He was brought out of prison, spoken kindly to, his status raised and his prison garments removed. He was re-clothed and his daily diet changed –vv31-34. What a radical transformation of his circumstances! He must have been somewhat shocked and surprised that this could happen at such a time! It was to be his lot for the rest of his life. Without doubt, he must have been most grateful that he would not be spending the rest of his days in prison.

The Lord can and does turn events in the calendar of His servants even when they appear to be utterly gloomy and pessimistic. Though there may be a long period of years where one seems to be locked up in a hopeless condition, one need not give in to despair, because in a moment He can step in and work a wonder. He has the capability, in an instant, to deal with every awkward and long-standing situation and so release you into a most favourable position. He can write you into a positive future in the most negative hour and fill it with potential and prospect.

IN MESSAGE

You are to be His messenger. This being the case, you must be in the place where you can hear what He has to say and be His Daily Herald. He has much to say to you and to those around that is relevant and necessary. He would keep you up-dated so that the news on your lips and views expressed are applicable and need to be received and followed through. As Christ was ever attuned to His Father and could perfectly secure His programme for life, so for you, today. Make it your business to be in contact and converse with heaven so that you are achieving the greater designs for living and showing others the way to succeed.

WISE SAYINGS

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt. And where thieves break through and steal. But lay up for yourselves in heaven, where neither moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through and steal1” – Matthew 6: 19,20.

You can’t take your money with you, but you can send it on ahead. Be wise and invest in the eternal kingdom and reap eternal rewards for sound and sensible investment.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

A great promise is made to Abraham and to his successors in faith and his offspring. The LORD says: “Fear not, Abram: I am your shield and exceeding reward.” Two guarantees are given at the same time which He is able to fulfil. He is able to be both Protector and Provider. How assuring that the LORD assumes Guardianship and all the Pre-requisites for life! Whatever the daily need is, He is aware of it and is on the spot to meet it out of His fullness. He never will be bankrupt or in a state of paralysis. So you must have no anxiety or undue pressure with yourself concerning Him. He does not simply turn up: He is ever present performing in a gracious and generous manner which warrants your faith, praise and worship.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

DECLARE GOD’S WORKS – Jeremiah 51

Although the bulk of this chapter is a prophecy about the ultimate judgment of Babylon, there are some verses that spell out the goodness of the Lord to His people. Things were to end up sadly for this major city and empire, but not so for God’s people. The call in v10 is for His chosen ones “to declare in Zion the work of the Lord our God.” There will be the sounding forth of God’s work on Judah’s enemy but it will include much more than that. When the Lord has finished with the situation they will have much to rejoice in.

His own people would be able to say: “For Israel hath not been forsaken, nor Judah of His God” –v5. He had preserved them in Babylon and would fully restore them back to Himself and their choice possession. They would come out of this terrible ordeal seeing not only the enemy devastated but also themselves truly delivered with great prospects. At no time had He deserted them or forsaken His purpose in bringing them to full blessedness. They would come to see, know and declare His marvellous grace and works.

The Christian believers must be in the situation of expressing their gratitude in praise of the works of the Lord at all times. There should be the evidence of the defeating of the enemies and the manifestation of His kindness in multiple blessings. His hand of providence is to be known for good in your affairs so that you may testify to all of His generous doings. He will do all things well so that you can speak well of Him. Let there be a constant revelation of His gracious workings in your life so that you will be able to share Him and His works to all.

IN MESSAGE

The sun is not always shining, the skies are not forever blue, the gentle breeze is not always evident. These natural factors that grace creation and add lustre and blessing to our existence are not always to be seen. At times they disappear from view. It does not mean that they cease to exist. They are just temporarily out of view. They speak a message in their absence. We are not forever surrounded with beautiful things that light up life and make it pleasurable. There sometimes are seasons when it is dark, when there is a storm on and it is cold. It is at these times you need to bring good cheer and be sunshine and welcome climate into the seeming negative conditions. You can make a difference where you are by lighting up the day and community!

WISE SAYINGS

“He that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster” – Proverbs 18:9

Make sure that spend your time in industrious labour so you will have no room for regret or sorrow.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

The psalmist said: “I waited patiently and expectantly for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my prayer” – Psalm 40:1. The LORD is always worth waiting for. It may seem that sometimes there is delay but this is not so because all is perfectly timed by Him. He does not have to worry at any time or work Himself into a sweat but is fully aware of everyone and everything and possesses the wherewithal to answer all. Two things you require: ‘patience and expectation’; they are twin factors that predict the certainty of His interventions.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A STRONG REDEEMER – Jeremiah 50

Highlighted in this chapter is the fact that Israel’s God is a strong Redeemer. It affirms: “the Lord of hosts is His Name” –v34. He is the One that espoused the despised and downtrodden estate of Israel by setting them free from the grip and domination of Babylon. For over 70 years this evil, tyrannical power had exercised control over God’s people but the time was to be when the tables would be truly turned. The prophetic word from on high proclaimed that their freedom was to be miraculously brought to pass by divine intervention.

This enemy that had been so powerful and dictatorial was to be subjected to a complete overthrow. Although it had been so outstanding in its rule it would be reduced to utter impotence. No longer would Babylon be master over the Lord’s inheritance, His elect household. Their strong Redeemer would break the bondage of His people and bring them back to Himself and to their own territory. The miracle would occur beyond all natural reasoning and expectation for His peoples’ delight.

This title of the Lord remains. He possesses the power to loose His people and this is manifest in the New Covenant He has made with all men. He has the power to free from every kind of bondage – sin, self, Satan, sickness and everything else that is detrimental to people. He can and does restore the lost favour and fortune that man has missed out on with God. He would deal with all your foes and fears and lead you back to enjoy the rights that are yours in and through Christ. Let Him be your Deliverer and bring the essential deliverances you need in your life. He wills to exercise His strength continually on your behalf.
