And if you faithfully obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. (Deuteronomy 28:1)
There are a good number of people who want the blessings of God but want to avoid obeying the Lord too. The question is not the capacity of God nor the Gospel of Jesus Christ to be a blessing to you. Rather it’s about your personal accountability to the Lord God. Some foolish people feel entitled to every blessing mentioned in the Bible but ask them if they give time to prayer and what do they pray about then don’t be surprised with their answer. They’d say that they pray for a car or house or some material thing all the time. However the part of prayer where they are to thank God and ask of his mercy turns out to be alarmingly lacking. You’d also notice they make hardly any prayers for the peace of Jerusalem nor for the Gospel reaching the lost and unsaved. Obviously, they won’t ask for the grace of God to do everything that God has commanded them to do. Don’t be like these self obsessed people. Rather be a true obedient worshipper of God. And yes, to obey you need to know what the Lord God has said. For this very reason make sure you actually read the Bible and pray that Jesus Christ leads you by the Holy Spirit into all truth. Don’t focus too much on prosperity but rather to the Lord God to whom belongs all wholesome and life giving prosperity.
Christ be with you!
“So many people concentrate on knowing who a good preacher or a bad preacher is and so many people concentrate on knowing what the word of God is! The former is good but the latter is noble. The latter is the best answer to the former. The real duty of man is never to know man but to know God through Christ Jesus! Knowing the word of God is the true way to knowing God!” – Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Revelation 5:6-10 (NKJV) verses:
6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. 7 Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne. 8 Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. 9 And they sang a new song, saying:
“You are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
And have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
10 And have made us kings and priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth.”
Finally the UK has voted to leave the EU!
And you can read about it on link below:
Pray for the UK that the will of God prevails against the chaos.
Pray that all hate mongering about pro-EU groups and leave EU groups settle their differences amicably and peacefully.
Pray that every false and deceptive immigrant is deported or tackled effectively. That there is a more clear way of taking in genuinely needy immigrants.
Pray that the relationship between the UK and other countries especially those having their elections this year are on good terms.
Pray for non compromising preacher’s to preach a lot in Wales and Scotland especially in the rural areas.
Pray for Christians in the UK to be the head and not the tail. That they reflect on the things of God and leave foolish pursuits of vain entertainment.
(A forwarded message)
A Minister passing through his church in the middle of the day decided to pause by the altar to see who came to pray.
Just then the back door opened, and a man came down the aisle,
The minister frowned as he saw the man hadn’t shaved in a while.
His shirt was torn and shabby, and his coat was worn and frayed,
The man knelt down and bowed his head, then rose and walked away.
In the days that followed at precisely noon, the preacher saw this chap,
Each time he knelt just for a moment, a lunch pail in his lap.
Well, the minister’s suspicions grew, with robbery a main fear,
He decided to stop and ask the man, ‘What are you doing here?’
The old man said he was a factory worker and lunch was half an hour
Lunchtime was his prayer time, for finding strength and power.
I stay only a moment because the factory’s far away;
As I kneel here talking to the Lord, this is kind of what I say:
‘I Just Came By To Tell You, Lord, How Happy I Have Been,
Since We Found Each Other’s Friendship And You Took Away My Sin.
Don’t Know Much Of How To Pray, But I Think About You Every day.
So, Jesus, This Is Ben, Just Checking In Today.’
The minister feeling foolish, Told Ben that it was fine.
He told the man that he was welcome to pray there anytime.
‘It’s time to go, and thanks,’ Ben said as he hurried to the door.
Then the minister knelt there at the altar, which he’d never done before.
His heart melted, warmed with love, as he met with Jesus there.
As the tears flowed down his cheeks, He repeated old Ben’s prayer:
‘I Just Came By To Tell You, Lord, How Happy I’ve Been,
Since We Found Each Other’s Friendship and You Took Away My Sin.
I Don’t Know Much Of How To Pray, But I Think About You Every day.
So, Jesus, This Is Me, Just Checking In Today.’
Past noon one day, the minister noticed that old Ben hadn’t come.
As more days passed and still no Ben, He began to worry some.
At the factory, he asked about him, learning he was ill.
The hospital staff was worried, But he’d given them a thrill.
The week that Ben was with them, Brought changes in the ward.
His smiles and joy contagious. Changed people were his reward.
The head nurse couldn’t understand why Ben could be so glad,
When no flowers, calls or cards came, not a visitor he had.
The minister stayed by his bed, He voiced the nurse’s concern:
No friends had come to show they cared. He had nowhere to turn.
Looking surprised, old Ben spoke up and with a winsome smile;
‘The nurse is wrong, she couldn’t know, He’s been here all the while.’
Every day at noon He comes here, a dear friend of mine, you see,
He sits right down and takes my hand, Leans over and says to me:
‘I Just Came By To Tell You, Ben, How Happy I Have Been,
Since We Found This Friendship, And I Took Away Your Sin.
I Think About You Always And I Love To Hear You Pray,
And So Ben, This Is Jesus, Just Checking In Today.’
If this blesses you, pass it on. Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart…
May God hold you in the palm of His hand And Angels watch over you.
So, FRIENDS & FAMILY, this is ME …”Just Checking In Today”
