And he turned into her he thought her to be an halort, because she has covered her face. And he turned into unto her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray there, let me come in unto thee, for he knew not she was his daughter in law. And she said, what will thou give me, that thou may come in unto me
There will be a turning in your turn! A season of life will come that you will have a choice to make! The one that controls the tide will turn it in your favour!
Time and chances are twin sister, when you fail to maximize your chance at your time, you may never access your Prophetic destiny!
Tamar had one chance to sit on that road, just one chance to meet and mate with Judah, just one chance to place a tag on her destiny, just one chance to answer her name – The Palm
Opportunity walks on two legs! Only people that are deliberate and international about life access the juice out of life. Many are on the road without a defined purpose! Not Tamar – her outing was on a purpose, she was not an aimless hunter going no where to happen!
What you do when things turn to you counts. You don’t practice winning strategies inside the ring! You win by acting out your rehearsed scripts! I be on the way, the Lord will meet me!
Tamar had a mapped out pattern! You don’t go on search engine to respond to life’s questions. You must be a ready-made, now woman that thinks on her toes!
Suffice for you to know that there is something you have that someone on this page need desperately! You must also know that if you do not have specific price tag, the world will underpay you! Infact there are clan of Laban that will change your wages ten times!
Do you know your worthy? Do you know you are priceless? It took Jesus to die to buy you over, so you must not allow anyone to tramp you on the floor!
Never enter any contract without signing agreement with a seal!
I listened to a beautiful message two nights ago titled “Plot Twist” by Pastor Steven Furtick. And he highlighted how 2020 is the year of the plot twist, we all had things planned out, goals set, travel arrangements, summer body goals, you name it, then came Covid-19 and boom, plot twist, and everything changed.
This got me thinking, everytime there is a plot twist to things you had prearranged, there lies an opportunity to think outside the box, to reevaluate your priorities or maybe just be still and know! With every plot twist comes a change in every other chapter in that story.
How are you rewriting your story? If you were too busy for the people that matter most in your life, I hope this plot twist has helped you realise that your time with them is limited and therefore precious, leave work at work and be wholly present with your family and friends when home. If you always postpone that trip or opportunity to spoil yourself, when the world is fully reopened, rewrite and complete that chapter. That blog you’ve always wanted to start (and I’m speaking to myself too), go ahead and do it. Those early morning or late night prayers and Bible reading sessions you always want to start, now is the time. A wise someone said, “if you get out of this lockdown not having done the things you said you never had time to do, then you never lacked time, you just lacked self-discipline”.
We could be so focused on the virus and its effects, we might miss out on the lessons it brings. Each day still presents new opportunities and blessings. There’s still so much to be grateful for everyday. Celebrate even the smallest of victories, being alive and healthy is always a great starting point. Find at least one positive thing each day, and you’ll recognise so many others. Count your many blessings name them one by one and it will surprise you (literally) what the Lord has done.
Yes, it is yet another amazing day …praise God! My day started beautifully, with me feeling refreshed. It all began with a spirit lifting worship from the song ‘Show Us Thy Glory’, by one of my spirit sisters…oh yes I call Ma’m Augustina Addison my spirit sister because of the deep connection I felt through her worship. She did a soul shaking rendition of this song. Praying for more oil over her life in the mighty name of Jesus. I am yet to come down even as I type, from the awesome clouds of worship.
A lot is going on with the COVID19 situation, that families, businesses and economies are beginning to feel the down side of it. Some except by mercy, may not recover fully from the downturn because they weren’t prepared for it. People more than ever are trusting God to be their healer, protector and provider. God is these to us and much more. While I pondered on the situation, asking God for a way out for his people, a word and this song was laid in my spirit.
Show us thy glory oh Lord Show us thy glory oh Lord Let the dew of heaven bring us a refreshing show us your glory once more.
We are crying day and night asking God to show his face. We need him now! I was led to the following scriptures to remind me that God never fails. He already made provision for us. Praise God!
We have a heavenly release of the dew of heaven and every other blessings designed for those who are called by the name of the Lord. The dew of heaven is the refreshing we need this season.
…..and the heavens shall give their dew Halleluyah. The dew of heaven truly is refreshing. The earth’s thirst is quenched everyday by this dew and our spirits are freshed by heaven’s dew.
God has giving to us the blessing of the dew and it is only right that we get refreshed by it. You wonder why despite all the promises and blessings of God, you still feel the thirst, like you are in the desert. The Lord sends a word today and here it is…. this is wisdom to have the dew of heaven bring you a refreshing in this season as you travail in prayer.
By his divine revelation he broke open the hidden fountains of the deep, bringing secret springs to the surface as the mist of the night dripped down from heaven.
Proverbs 3:20 TPT
Aha! You need divine revelation for the release of heaven’s dew.
Let us ask God today for that divine revelation, the knowledge or ideas that will position us to receive heaven’s dew so we are refreshed today
I pray for you,
Heavenly Father by your love and mercy, reveal your glory to your own today, give them all they need in wisdom and understanding as we pray in Jesus mighty name, Amen

Are You A Mother Or A Witch? Mystery Of The Womb Where Was The Mother Of Esau?
29 – And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint: —
22 – And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of the LORD. — Rebecca went to ask…..she went to find out the reason for the struggle in her womb!
Genesis 25:29, 25:22
Many women go up and down to make enquiry about the destinies, the stars and the glory of their children! The purpose of going into prayer houses and mountains is just to know about prophetic destinies of their children so that they can know who to support. Some want to know so they can know which of their children will be strong financially so they can know who will favour them! This is quickest way of signing in into prophetic witchcraft and spiritism
And the LORD said unto her, two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger. —
Rebecca discovered that founders of two nations were in her womb, the separation of two people began in her body! One people shall be stronger than the other, and the elder shall serve the younger
When you have access to information what do you do? When Rebecca had access to know that two founder of nations were struggling in her womb, and that she was permitted to be mother of nations; what did she do?
Motherhood is a rare privilege that we all don’t qualify for. What of to have premonition of being mother of two different nations.
God gives seed not fruit. Jacob was a nation seed and Esau was another nation seed both planted in the womb of one woman. What we receive from God are seed not fruits. What we do with the seed determines the type of fruit we eat in our night season
Prophecy is foreknowledge – a gaze into the future, a knowing of tomorrow! A mental picture and image of what will be in the future!
Do you know that war broke out from the womb of Rebekah against Esau in support of Jacob from that day?
Why will you name your child Jacob? Words are spirit. Each time mother speaks, the word is empowered to accomplish a designed purpose! She decided to work out the fulfilment of the detail of the enquiry! She designed program and app to supplant the elder son, she resolved to support the younger brother to subjugate his elder brother Nothing function on it own. Everything thrives on certain back up! So Jacob had the backing of her mother to deceive, supplant and manipulate Esau!
While in the womb, the wall of her womb was against the prosperity of Esau, while the two struggles for survival, the witch mother spirit says Jacob shall supplant the leadership inheritance belonging to Esau. Growing up, she promised her support daily to Jacob. “I am here to make it work”, so on the naming ceremony day, a demon spirit was released to empower Jacob to carry out that mandate of supplanting his elder brother’s inheritance!
What is the correlation between lunch and birthright! Where is Jacob going to? Why will Esau be denied food at home? Where is Rebekah in all this drama? Who was the brain behind the supplanting plot?
Oooh I am pained for Esau because the womb that bore him was against him. The breast that gave him suck agreed to fight against his destiny!
What was the end of Rebecca?
Follow blog to get notification of the concluding part of this series. God bless you!
Ponder the path of your feet, And let all your ways be established. Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil.
God is calling on us today to establish ALL our ways unto righteousness.
He says further in same proverbs 4:18 that the paths of the righteous are like a shining light that shines brighter and brighter unto a perfect day.
This is an assurance that those whose path are just, ultimately fulfil God’s purpose for their lives.
HOW DO WE ESTABLISH OUR WAYS IN RIGHTEOUSNESS
JUSTIFIED BY FAITH….Believe in God supported by works
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.”
There is no pleasing God without having faith as a believer. To walk in a path of righteousness, you must believe in God through Christ and exercise your faith by works.
Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?
God himself testified that Abraham was righteous because of his faith. He showed that he trusted God to keep his promise towards him and his generations unborn, even when God demanded his heir in sacrifice. Abraham did not withold from God the only hope he had. He trusted God beyond human wisdom. Today, God is calling you to walk in this kind of faith.
And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God.
2. Keeping God’s Statutes
For I have kept the ways of the Lord , And have not wickedly departed from my God. For all His judgments were before me, And I did not put away His statutes from me. I was also blameless before Him, And I kept myself from my iniquity.
It is easier now in this dispensation of grace to have the holy Spirit guide you into all truths, to follow God’s statutes without much stress as those sold out to Christ. Don’t bother about keeping the letter of old commandment, you cannot fulfil every one of them. God is asking you to trust completely in the holy Spirit to guide you. His words has he imprinted in your heart, obey every instruction as the Spirit leads you.
David was called JUST, save for the case of Uriah the Gittite. He eventually reconciled with God and God attested to His righteousness because he did what was always right by God. Are you obeying the instructions of God?
because David did what was right in the eyes of the Lord , and had not turned aside from anything that He commanded him all the days of his life, except in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.
3. Bringing to God excellent sacrifice
By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks.
Abel gave a the best of his harvest. God is calling to us today to not only give the best of our substance but the best of our service also.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
Offer the best of you in showcasing the glory of God as a believer. Let your life bring observers to the knowledge of God through Christ that you preach, not just in word but also in works.
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE IN THE BIBLE WHOSE PATHS WERE ESTABLISHED IN RIGHTEOUSNESS
1. Abraham 2. Noah
These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
3. Lot 4. Job. 5. David 6. Enoch 7. John the baptist
REWARD OF ESTABLISHING YOUR PATH UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS
1. God reveals himself/plans to the upright.
When you walk in a just path, you are no offender of God but a friend. Your day to day walk with God will bring you to a place of intimacy where God through His Spirit will reveal all you need to know about you and others.
For the perverse person is an abomination to the Lord , But His secret counsel is with the upright.
God never hid anything from his faithful friend Abraham and will not hide anything from you when you walk faithfully in righteousness with him.
And the Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing,
2. The integrity of the Just saves him and blesses his children after him
The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.
You must have heard that a good name is better than silver or gold. One’s works precedes them and will deliver them if good, from trouble in time of obscurity or wrong allegations.
The integrity of the upright will guide them, But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them.
Unprecedented blessings from God
But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
In conclusion, remember the wages of sin is death. One who derails from the paths of righteousness is an enemy of God. Do not walk in darkness. The path of the righteous shines like light. You will not stumble in Jesus mighty name. Amen and amen.
The way of the wicked is like darkness; They do not know what makes them stumble.
So yesterday on my blog post, I highlighted that one of the steps in worshipping God in truth, is following him in total obedience. I summed it up by admonishing us not to be like King Saul who would rather please men and himself than obey the instruction of God.
God hates disobedience and as such, when you desire to come into his presence, you must come with a heart that is willing to obey Him completely.
There is no true worship without obedience. Keeping God’s instructions on righteousness and justice is acceptable unto God. It is a sweet smelling savor and humble sacrifice.
I thought to reiterate on this when I saw this as the verse of today on the Bible app. The Spirit of God is one. All God ever requires from us is a life of righteousness.
To do righteousness and justice Is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.
TODAY, GOD IS ASKING YOU TO WORSHIP HIM IN OBEDIENCE
Is there any way you have disobeyed God’s instructions? Have you been doing things in your own way like Saul when you hear expressly, God instructing you to do another?
Bring on a new sacrifice today– a broken and contrite spirit, God will never reject. I pray the Holyspirit leads you to reconciliation with the father through Christ as you ask God for mercy in Jesus name.
Beloved friends, what should be our proper response to God’s marvelous mercies? I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God to be his sacred, living sacrifices. And live in holiness, experiencing all that delights his heart. For this becomes your genuine expression of worship.
Romans 12:1 (TPT)
WHAT IS WORSHIP?
You’ve probably often wondered what worship truly is right? Oxford dictionary defines worship as a feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity. Brilliant definition isn’t it? Let’s take a walk through the word in Romans 12:1, so we can understand what it says in addition to the above definition, on how to worship
HOW TO WORSHIP
This without inhibition is the first step in the art of worship. Total surrender of your being- your spirit, soul and body. Reserve nothing for yourself or any other. Hold nothing back. You can’t be committed to worship and have weights pulling you down and away from your altar. Drop the weight at the foot of Jesus and set yourself loose.
BE GOD’S SACRED TEMPLE
Be set apart for God alone. You must stand holy before His throne. There should be no other allegiance but to God. You can’t serve two masters. You must be God’s alone.
Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17
For us to worship we must plead the blood to stand spotless before His throne. Our God is holy and those who worship must worship in spirit and in truth.
BE THE LIVING SACRIFICE
when I hears the word ‘SACRIFICE’, the first picture that comes to mind is an illustration from the childhood– my book of bible stories that’s been etched in my spirit. The Israelites often had animals slaughtered on an altar with the smoke from its burning rising up to heaven. This smoke, the word made us understand, when accepted is a pleasing aroma, a sweet smelling savor. Praise God for Jesus, the lamb that was slain once and for all, offered unto God as a sweet fragrance and same Jesus now in us has transformed us into a living and walking sacrifice, consistently diffusing the fragrance of the knowledge of God.
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?
2 Corinthians 2:14-16
God wants us to diffuse the knowledge of God always. It an expression of worship. We need to have Jesus in our lives for us to be a walking incense, a living sacrifice.
LIVE IN HOLINESS
There is no doubt, God cannot behold iniquity. If you want to enter his presence in worship or connect to him as a living sacrifice, you must live a life of holiness. Worship ushers us into God presence when we lead holy lives. It is very possible with the help of the Holyspirit to live holy for God. There is no worship without holiness.
Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:
EXPERIENCE GOD’S HEART DELIGHT
Be like King David, a man after God’s heart. Seek to please the Lord in everything. Observe to do his bid at all time. Do not be like King Saul who sought to serve God the way he pleased and not in obedience.
Samuel said, “Has the Lord as much delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices As in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams.
1 Samuel 15:22
Finally, use your all in worship. Your voice, your intellect every power he has gifted you with. Sing graciously to the king always. He is ADONAI
ADONAI (Elijah Oyelade)
[Chorus] Adonai, Adonai We worship you, Adonai Adonai, Adonai We worship you, Adonai

I have seen people who made more preparations for their wedding day than the actual marriage life itself. I have watched these marriages bite the dust eventually and unfortunately. This will never be our portion in Jesus name.
The word of God is one that guides us into all truths as pertains marriage. We can help our children prepare for their future marriage by sowing the WORD and PRAYER. It is not too early to start even before you are married.
WHY MUST WE PRAY FOR OUR CHILDREN CONCERNING FUTURE MARRIAGE NOW?
1. Start them on a very healthy marital foundation through prayers so they do not have to deal with generational evil patterns of an abusive and or broken home. Deal with problems from the root early.
If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
2. So they can be equally yoked with their soul mate, one given to them to help each other fulfill God’s purpose for marriage and for the kingdom.
Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?
3. So you can enjoy peace of mind even at old age
When Esau was forty years old, he took as wives Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Basemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite. And they were a grief of mind to Isaac and Rebekah.
And Rebekah said to Isaac, “I am weary of my life because of the daughters of Heth; if Jacob takes a wife of the daughters of Heth, like these who are the daughters of the land, what good will my life be to me?”
4. To raise a godly generation after them.
5. Marriage is another form of evangelism. The right combination, are torch bearers of the gospel. It is your duty as parents to ensure the torch is carried from one generation to another, blazing the trail for soul winning through active spousal evangelistic partnerships or inactive evangelism through conduct and the peace of a godly home.
6.Your children most definitely, need spiritual support in your absence and that only comes handy when they marry a spiritually sound partner. If there is any form of attack, both can together wreck havoc in the camp of the enemy.
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; But how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
How could one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight, Unless their Rock had sold them, And the Lord had surrendered them?
God is glorified through a heavenly union.
If you haven’t already erected a prayer altar for your children’s future marriage/ spouse, you should do so now.
Call them by name(You should probably start naming your unborn kids now) while you pray for them.
Keep a reminder note somewhere you can always see. Could be in your bible or your phone. You could use sticky notes on a board in your private praying area.
You could start by maintaining a routine until it becomes a part of you to pray without a physical reminder.
Ask the Holyspirit to help you remember.
Pray! Just pray!! I say Pray!!
HEAVENLY FATHER, SHOW US TRUE WISDOM IN THESE WORDS AS THE HOLYSPIRIT EMPOWERS US TO PRAY ARIGHT FOR THE CHILDREN YOU HAVE GIVEN TO US…. IN JESUS NAME.
While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud. And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him
They were at the mountain top, He had prayed earnestly and His immortality has been swallowed up, the former rain soaked Him, His mentes saw the fashion of his countenance changed.
He tarried yet more on the mountain and suddenly they were overshadowed by the cloud, the cloud took them over, up on the mountain,
When He got into the cloud, there was a voice that came, this is my beloved son follow him! He got authentication attestation. Day unto day uttereth speech, the firmament declare His Glory. Hey how we missed it most time. Jesus tarried till the cloud took him over. He was not after shadow of men, He was after the cloud of glory, not after gathering of crowd. Hey my King tarried all night, gathering and mounting up.
Beloved mandate driver, let us get into the cloud. Let us tarry until the cloud of glory form on us. We must be cloud dwellers! We mostly leave the throne room in hurry. We go up the mountain and returned the same because of the demand of crowd. What will make the crowd to stay glue to us is in the cloud. Glory is a magnet! It pulls the crowd. However if at the expense of crowd we refuse to stay in the cloud, the crowd will never gather!
What the crowd need is in the cloud, get up the mountain, never come down until cloud overtake you. Even after the cloud has overtaken you, you still don’t return until you take what is the cloud! We need zeal of approval, we need scepter of authority, all are in the cloud!
The Prophetic Voice
All that you ever need is is in the cloud nor in the crowd! Never be deceive, if you don’t gather thy cloud, you can never get any satisfaction from any gathering with men.
Deliver me from haste spirit that pushes me away from your presence hurriedly without laying hold
Jesus now I know it is in the cloud of glory not in the crowd of men, hey deliver me from satanic deception that make me to give attention to drop of water that is on the crowd
Yeah I fall before you Lord, tear my flesh, deadening my flesh, keep me on top of mountain until the cloud overshadows me!
Haha deliver me oh Lord from gathering of crowd!
All I need is in the cloud of glory, transport me to the mountain top where I will be translated into the cloud of glory. Yeah father make me glue up there until the cloud come.
Lord deliver me from this restlessness that will not allow me to stay in glory room.
Father by your Mercy, grant me authentication attestation! Put upon me zeal of approval! Make it your heart cry.
Make time out for retreat. Make list of friends distracting you from laying hold of glory of God Put up measures to cut of unproductive friends Review how you spend your days, you may need to trim down certain activities that drains you
Happy glorious Sunday Morning children of God. Its a new day to rejoice in God, HallelUjah! Its a beautiful morning indeed for every child of God.
Blessed are ye that have grace to see this morning. Oh what an awesome privilege that we are alive again.
Many wants to have this day, but grave held them tight. In the absent of Grace comes Grave. May it never be our portion in JESUS name.
There is something glorious about God’s grace for every day we breathe.
What is Grace?
Grace is the availability of God’s favor and help you didnt work for or merit but have it as free gift from God. Grace is a gift from Heavenly Father given through His Son, JESUS Christ. The word grace, as used in the scriptures, refers primarily to enabling power and spiritual healing offered through the mercy and love of Jesus Christ. … No one can return to the presence of God without divine grace.
This morning let me take this time to remind those in Christ that there is no condemnation, rather what we have is the peace of God that suppases all understanding.
If you are in Christ JESUS, no condemnation. The greatest joy is that we are now in Christ and the love of God is shed abroad.
Those in Christ are kept by God. If you are among those reading this now; you carry the grace of God for new thing. In that new thing that comes with a new day, follows new beginning, new life, new joy, new job, new relationship, new marriage, new child, new ministry, new opportunities, new glory, new health, new contracts, new favor, new life. Everything becomes new. If you have read and never confessed Christ, the enemy has you in operations. But because you are reading today, hope is here. You need to be born again. The life you have must be exchanged with the one Christ laid. Make a confession of salvation today and be part of us.
Say with me: Lord Jesus, today i come to you as a sinner that i have been. Knowing about your grace and TRUTH today i understand your love for me. I made up my mind to follow you and live in your TRUTH. I confess JESUS as my LORD and personal savior. Be my life guide and my everything.
Today i confess that i am a child of God. For i now believe you God raised Jesus from dead. Write my name in the book of life as you send me your Holyspirit. Thank you for loving me, in Jesus name, Amen!
My rejoicing is always because of the benefits also. One good thing about having all this benefit is offcourse because we are in Christ. And you know to be in christ is to surrender your old life and accept the new life by believing in the Son of God that God raised him from dead. So in so doing, there is no condemnation for you have believed and walked in spirit.
In all this write ups written here today, one thing i will want you to carry this period is that Christ is still the Ultimate reason we have eternal life. If you are in Christ, you become new creation, old things are passed away.
Know that those in Christ no longer walk after the flesh but spirit because the acceptance of Christ gave a new life. New life is eternal life with God. So you see, new life, new spirit, new ways ends you with God eternally.
So below the text let me list few of what you benefit in Christ life:
Life in Christ
In Christ you have one spirit with the Trinity (Holyspirit dwells in you)
In Christ you have the agape of God for everyone.
In Christ you have the wisdom of God.
In Christ you have grace and anointing to do more…
In Christ you have hope…
In Christ you have the peace of God
In Christ you are blessed with all spiritual blessings.
In Christ you have liberty.
In Christ there is joy, hope, love, solution, protection,provision, good health and grace for more is available to those in Christ.
There is this joyful thing about being in Christ. It is enjoying every bit of God’s flow. The bible made us understand that God daily loads us with benefits in :
Psalms 68:19-20 Blessed [be] the Lord, [who] daily loadeth us [with benefits, even] the God of our salvation. Selah. [He that is] our God [is] the God of salvation; and unto GOD the Lord [belong] the issues from death.
His love for us is greater than any other… oh glory to God who causes us to rejoice always.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Our God is a good GOD he graces us with the life of his only begotten. Aint we privilege?
So in all we heard today, as i come close to the end of today’s message , we carry in our spirit grace and new things from God in every new day, halleluyah!!!
With gratitude of heart we know that every new day comes loaded with grace to stand all that follows each day. There is much grace to withstand temptation, trials and tribulation… Everyday has a phase of season. Ecclesistes 3 says it all
Ecclesiastes 3:1 TO EVERYTHING there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven:
But in any season, its the WORD of GOD in you that will sustain you.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Kjv.
John 1:2-4 The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
When you carry the Word in you, it helps you in the season that comes. We all know what is happening around the world today, but this too will pass away. It will become our past. Covid 19 is a past that will pass away. So even in lockdown, let the Word of God be your source. Its available in such a time to strengthen all those who believes and call upon the name of the LORD. See You can and will make it through. There is grace for us…
Truly in this pandemic, what has kept children of God is the Word they believe and know about the promise. Once you are planted and rooted in the Word of God, nothing can break you.
So children of God be strong and know that everything is in control. In all, these trouble came to play its role of testing your faith in God and it will fade away. One thing is, if you truly know your God like the Hebrew men in the burning furnace; you will stand stronger in all test that comes your way. They knew their God, They Kept their faith as they held on to God’s decree about worship no other than Jehovah.
Whatever yesterday brought, know that tomorrow has something new. When night goes away, comes a new day.
Still in all, dont let any one decieve you that you wont see trials and temptation, it will surely come; but it cant harm you. Jesus went through it so you dont feel it. So when it comes to shake your foundation; all you got to do is, shake it off and take a step.
Whatever it is, shake it off , take a step as you shout HallelUjah.
So in conclusion, rejoice in him for this is the day that the Lord has made. Its a Sunday to rejoice in the name of the Lord from whence our help comes from.
He remains the maker of heaven and earth. So thank him for the grace of a brand new morning and years to come beloved of God. Happy Sunday!
