STANDING FIRM IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES

We shall continue with looking into  the BOOK OF UNCHANGING TRUTH- The Bible which obviously has the solution to ALL MAN'S  problems to see how we can stand unshaken in all circumstances. Happy reading:
 Psalms 91:1-16  He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the Fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flies by day; Nor for the pestilence that walks in darkness; nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.  Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.



WE HAVE THE PROMISE OF A GOD  WHO CAN NEVER LIE!

Getting Secured Against Evil

Today we shall look at the way of safety and security. Whatever we have if not secured we shall loss. This is why many governments spend millions of money on security. We shall be going into the BOOK OF UNCHANGING TRUTH- The Bible- to get the secret. Happy reading.
Psalms 37:1-40:- Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be you envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shall you dwell in the land, and verily you shall be fed.  Delight yourself also in the LORD; and he shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.  And he shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your judgment as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not yourself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass.  Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not yourself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yes, you shall diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. The wicked plots against the just, and gnashes upon him with his teeth.  The Lord shall laugh at him: for he sees that his day is coming. The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.  Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken. A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholds the righteous. The LORD knows the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be forever. They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.  The wicked borrows, and pays not again: but the righteous shows mercy, and gives. For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off. The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delights in his way.  Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholds him with his hand. I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his children begging bread. He is ever merciful, and lends; and his children are blessed. Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore. For the LORD loves judgment, and forsakes not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein forever. The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, and his tongue talks of judgment. The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.  The wicked watches the righteous, and seeks to slay him. The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged. Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shall see it. I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.  Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yes, I sought him, but he could not be found. Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace. But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off. But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

Come rain come shine, come wave come storm, come lightening come thunder, come hurricane come tornado, come volcano come eruption, let it be great floods or mighty earth quakes; IT SHALL BE WELL WITH THE RIGHTEOUS!

LEARN TO CHANGE YOUR METHOD



Text: Exodus 17:1-6; Numbers 20:7-12

We learn that the only thing that is constant on Earth is CHANGE. With time every other thing changes. In facing the matters of life we must learn to use alternative methods in achieving goals. In healing the sick Our Lord Jesus did the same (John 9:1-7; Matt 20:29-34). In meeting the needs of the Israelites in the wilderness God did the same (Exodus 17:1-6; Numbers 20:7-12). Here in Exodus God asked Moses to strike the rock for water to come out, while in Numbers 20:7-12, to achieve the same miraculous result, God asked him to speak to the rock. Although, either way, God can perform the same miracle, yet it is definitely easier to speak to the rock than to strike the rock.  When you strike the rock, you exert more energy. Also, the one who is striking a rock will feel some formidable resistance. If you keep meeting with resistance while doing what you routinely do, find out better, easier and more productive alternatives. Learning to rely on the power and wisdom of God through the HOLY SPIRIT rather than your own wisdom and power will help a great deal. ‘’Not by POWER nor by MIGHT, but by my SPIRIT says the LORD’’ Zech 4:6

FAITH COMETH BY HEARING-----AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD

THE GREATEST SECURITY AGAINST EVIL, DOWNFALL AND FAILURE (PART 2).

Today we continue with God's Word on the greatest security against evil, read on.
Psalms 46:1-11:-God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;  Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.  There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.  The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He makes wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and cuts the spear in sunder; he burns the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen; I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.

CONCLUSION:

Psalms 33:12:-Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

LET THE WALL FALL


 Physical walls are common sights everywhere all over the world. All our houses have walls that separate the rooms and most compounds have walls that demarcate them from one another. A simple definition of a wall is a barrier or bar: something that separates you from the other side. Many lives are full of walls or barriers. These walls have prevented many from reaching their desired destinies. Desired goals are not attained, desired life is not lived! To some the wall is an incurable disease. To some it is lack of good means of livelihood. To some it is inability to get a marriage partner. To some it is unfruitfulness in marriage .To others it is lack of peace in their lives and homes, etc. Whatever the wall the good news is that the wall CAN FALL. You can break the barrier, move ahead in life, attain your goal and reach your destiny. We shall discus two simple steps.
Step 1- LET THE WALL FALL: By this I mean FORCE THE WALL TO FALL. Yes, you have the power or you just have to grab the power because it is available to you. The people of Israel on their journey to THE PROMISE LAND encountered a great wall and so there is no journey to the ‘’promise land’’ without great walls. If you must get there you must learn to push or pull down walls. How did the Israelites force the wall down? Let’s see- JOSHUA 6:1-20 (this is a Bible account and I want you to read it but if you don’t have a Bible please do go get one now)- They applied God’s Solution to it. They spoke God’s WORD to it. God’s Word is the most powerful thing on the entire universe. Everything submits to it whether negative or positive. Everything was made by the power of the WORD! Psalms 33:6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. You must know what God says concerning your WALL and act accordingly and it shall crumble before you. Mark 11:23 says ’’ For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.’’ All things are possible to him that believes-Mark 9:23. As I said earlier if you lack the power you can grab it by giving your life to Jesus.

Step 2-Letting the wall fall: As we usually say ‘there is no smoke without fire. There are things that build and empower walls around us. These things we must be ready to let go. Let’s see what God says- ‘’Proverbs 3:7 -Be not wise in your own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. The root cause of walls in a man’s life is evil doings- SIN. Sin builds and empowers them-John 5:14. We must be ready to say bye- bye to sin by giving our life to JESUS CHRIST who died to save us from our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness and be ready to live a life that is pleasing to God. Then He (GOD) who is ‘mighty warrior and great in battle’ will become enemy to our enemies and fight for us and of course no wall can stand before Him.

HONOUR GOD WITH YOUR SUBSTANCE:

 The earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof says the HOLY BOOK. God is the maker and the owner of all things. Whatever a man has is given to Him by the grace of God ( John 3:27; 1Corint 4:7). God as the source expects us to give back to that SOURCE. This is one way of ensuring steady supply. In God’s Manual to Man- The Bible- Man is commanded to give offerings and pay tithes to GOD according to the measure of blessings received (2 Corint 8:12). Until we are willing to obey God along this line we are not yet ready for net-breaking miracles.
In Luke 5:1-7 we see Peter, a professional fisherman. Peter with his men had gone out for business. Throughout the night Peter and his men had tried all they could to make good business but all were in vain. They were utterly disappointed as all their efforts ended up with negative results. They had given up and were about to go home with no hope of putting food upon the table for their families. This is the case of many people today from day to day. Thwarted efforts! Hopelessness! Continues disappointments! Life without food upon the table when needed!
A POSITIVE TURN-AROUND: In Luke 5:3 we see the giving that changed the story of Peter. He had given his boat for the progress of the work of God. He had GIVEN HIS BOAT TO GOD-A GREAT HONOUR. Mind you at this time he had no other thing to give-nothing! But he had to give at the time it is needed and GOD CHANGED HIS STORY (Luke 5:5-6). Today God will change your story as you learn to honour Him in Jesus Name.
Prov.3:9- Honour The Lord with your substance and with the first fruits of all your increase: and so shall your treasure house be filled with plenty.


Learn to obey God and it shall be well with YOU.
