Praising God In Difficult Situation!

Acts 16:25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose. 27 The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!”

inhabit praisePaul and Silas, having been stripped and beaten with rods, were severely flogged, and then thrown into prison, yet, they prayed and sang hymns unto God. How could they sing, I mean pray unto God who did not send a whirlwind to disperse their accuser? God left us to be humiliated, why should we sing hymns unto Him? This was not questions, not even a thought for these men. They were too far gone in their faith to consider such! “Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him; – Job 13:15 must have been the thought in their hearts. 

last-breath praiseFriends, how often do we encounter discouragement in our walk and we lose heart. We suffer for our own mistakes and deprive God of quality worship. May we not be replaced! Regardless of what is going on within and without friends, let us endeavor to pray and worship God, for He deserves it. Do you know that your worship in difficult circumstances is a reflection of the depth of your trust in the Lord? You will make a better witness, and produce a finer testimony than when in fair weather.

john-4_23When you pray and praise God in any situation, God moves, He steps into the situation, for He inhabit the praises of His people – Psalms 22:3.

Lord God Almighty, we praise and worship your holy name. Holy Spirit, help us to pray, praise and worship God in spirit and in truth. May we live daily to worship you in obedience and in reverence in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Staying On Faithland!

There was a priest named Zachariah, and his wife Elizabeth, is from the lineage of Aaron. Both of them were righteous in the SIGHT of God, observing all the Lords’s commands and decrees blamelessly. BUT they were childless because Elizabeth was not able to conceive, and they were both very old. Luke 1:5-7.

What happened here? How can a couple with such a resume be fruitless? They were righteous in the sight of God and yet childless! Did God not say the fruit of the womb was a reward?

Psalms 127:3 Children are a heritage from the Lord, offsprings a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Did God deliberately shut Elizabeth’s womb? Why would God withheld His reward till they were very old?

God had special plan for them. His reward was John, who is predestined to be the Lord’s forerunner.

Friends, please note that delay is not denial!. When you pray, and it seem your prayers are not been answered, be persistent and be filled with gratitude! Absolutely!! Gratitude because the Lord is making a special, one in a lifetime, custom made miracle just for you.

Whatever you have been asking the Lord for and it seems not forthcoming is going to show up if you keep believing and living the word!

Do not allow mockery of the wicked to discourage you.  I remember when I got married, a sister in law was unto me, pestering me, like you should do this and that. This was three months into living together. The intrusion made me to start worrying, until I was told she waited for eight years before she had her first child.

Why pester me then I thought? It’s a ploy by Satan to unsettle you with fear, doubt and the likes, thereby delaying the manifestation of the Lord’s promises! Reject the invite to worryland! Stay on faith lane!

Waiting period is a test of your faith, and loyalty to God. Zechariah continued serving the Lord regardless of his status. And in due time, the Lord gave him a miracle like no other, John the baptist.

Pray without ceasing – 1 Thessalonians 5:17, be expectant, and be prepared to take hold of your miracle.

Jesus is Lord!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

It has been said to me, to remain confident of this, that I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13

Radiant Glory Of Love

Romans 4: 18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” Just as it had been said to him, just as it had been said to them, just as it had been said to you, just as it had been said to me! What has just been said to you Joan? What has the Lord Said?

Just Imagine!!! Hmm!!!

When there is unity, unity of purpose, we often see the manifestation of the power of God. What we have been experiencing lately in the family and the Kingdom is individuality, personal marketing, and self promotion as it is in the World. The very fabric of our society is riddled with greed and self centered-ness.

Friends, stop right there!! Just imagine! Imagine we all, the different parts of the Lord’s body, coming together as one!! Yes, as ONE! What a miracle for the World to see.

2 Chronicles 5:13 The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the Lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang: “He is good; his love endures forever.” Then the temple of the Lord was filled with the cloud, 14 and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled the temple of God.

What a beauty!!! The breakthroughs, promotion, increase, expansion, fruitfulness of our bodies, healing, deliverance, and so much more that we need, want, and desire will be birthed in the place of praise unto our God in one accord, unity of purpose in spirit and in truth.

If only we will let go of the pretense and come together genuinely to praise Him who inhabit the praises of His peoplePsalms 22:3.

God’s Expectation of You & I!

“When tempest rage within and without, will you still be able to sing the Lord is good my friends? Or is your praise dependent on the admiration of man, your celebrity status, prime time audience and much more!”

It is easier to sing when your belly is filled up, your barn is full of lifestock a crown on your head, the best car in your driveway, designer wears, exotic fragrances, everything your heart desires and much more!! Why will you not praise God one may ask?

Friends, when you meet a man or woman, those that praise with and without the necessity of life, then you know, they have really had encounters!!

Bearing your cross means a lot friends!! What does that mean to you? Is it only when the fig tree blooms?

God is faithful still, let not your heart be troubled! Praise Him anyways!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

EMUNAH-quote2

Is your faithfulness to God dependent on your being on the mountain top? Is it dependent on your comfort, status, situation, or circumstances. Can you still sing and dance to the Lord in the wilderness, in pain, disappointment, having been betrayed by friends and family? Israel said how can we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land. Psalms 137:4 How shall we singtheLord’s song In a foreign land?

When tempest rage within and without, will you still be able to sing the Lord is good my friends? Or is your praise dependent on the admiration of man, your celebrity status, prime time audience and much more!

Lord God Almighty, may our heart and mouth praise you in the valley as on the mountain top. May there always be a new song on our lips and a dance on our waist to you our Saviour and King…

The Sovereign God Be Praise!

Psalms 33:1 Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. 2 Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. 3 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. 4 For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth. 5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD. 6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. 7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. 8 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. 9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast. 10 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect. 11 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. 12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. 13 The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. 14 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth. 15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works. 16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. 17 An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength. 18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; 19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. 20 Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield. 21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. 

Be magnified Oh Lord my God! Praise the Lord friends for His faithfulness and mercy, for His love endures forever. He has not forsaken and will not forsake His beloveth!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
