LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Thursday , August 11, 2022
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed: But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.--- Psalm 102:25-27

Recent developments in the world political stage has strengthened my conviction, that if there is anything one can bank on, it is indeed only the Rock of Ages.
I have been on planet earth around six decades. My impression can be summed up thus—what an unstable world we live in!
When I was growing up, the Cold War between the East and West was at its climax.
Then came the collapse of the Eastern block of communist states.
I thought the Western block was built on more solid foundations so could survive the test of time. Maybe I was naive to think so.
Now as I write in the year 2022 , cracks—yes, obvious cracks have started developing.
I am not a prophet of doom, but from the look of things it could be a matter of time when the Western block of countries as it used to be gives way to “something else”.
Yes indeed, everything man-made is momentary, yes transitory. If ever there is any sure Foundation to build on, yes to hold on to, then it is indeed the Rock of Ages, the Ancient of Days, the Lord God.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Tuesday, August 9, 2022
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In Psalm 118:9 we read:
It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.

I have on several occasions placed my hope in flesh only to be disappointed. I am not pointing a finger of blame at anyone—that is simply human nature. You may be expecting someone to help you out of your woes; what you may not be aware of is that the individual concerned may also be in the hot soup!
In my culture family members are expected to help one another. The widespread poverty and the fact that, as of now, there is virtually no state benefit system in place to cater for those in need, has made family members tend to rely on each other all the more.
Through the mysterious workings of the Lord, I managed to make it all the way from my impoverished little village to medical school in Germany.
The fact that I am a medical doctor combined with the fact that I am currently resident in Europe, a place regarded by many at home as a kind of heaven on earth, has raised the expectations of some of my kinsmen literally to the highest heavens. That I am an ordinary man of flesh, plagued with my own problems has not sunk in to everyone. My inability to fulfil such elevated expectations could lead to disappointment in others.
Dear fellow Christian soldiers, let us learn to put our trust in the Lord rather than in flesh. For I know no power in the universe capable of guaranteeing absolute security in the vicissitudes of life other than the Divine Shepherd. He has been tested and found faithful—always!
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Monday, August 8, 2022
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In Psalm 30:5 we read:
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Fellow Christian soldier, you seem to see no way out in a seemingly dead-end situation.
To the right and to the left the storms have gathered;
behind you and in front the enemy is closing in!
You have prayed and fasted, fasted and prayed;
and once more prayed and fasted!
Yet an answer to prayer seems not forthcoming.
Doubt has begun to linger in your mind…
If He is so loving, why does He seem not to care?
If He is so omnipotent, why cannot I sense His presence?
If He is so powerful, why does He not display His might in my situation?
Hope indeed has given in to despair…
Still, I want to assure you: God is near when He seems very distant.
He is indeed a faithful Friend in whom we can rely!
So keep fighting the good fight until the day arrives
when the choir of Heaven descends on your home
to fill it with sweet heavenly melody.
Weeping may indeed endure for a night;
joy with all certainty cometh in the morning.
So cheer up, fellow Christian warrior, and keep marching on!

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Sunday, August 7, 2022
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In 1 Samuel 17:45 we read:
David replied to the Philistine, You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies—the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

Dear Christian soldier, let us make the words of the shepherd boy David our battle cry.
For sure, on our own we are nothing before the enemy! Indeed, no matter what status we have achieved in our work for God on earth, the fact remains that on our own we are no match to the powers up against us.
On the contrary, as long as we abide in the Lord, we can with David declare to the forces against us—demons, principalities, juju power, voodoo power—that even though they may go to great lengths in their effort to destroy us and our family, our business, our reputation, we are not afraid or scared.
Yes indeed, whatever weapons they muster against us will not harm or hurt us!
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Saturday, August 6, 2022
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In Proverbs 22:6 we read:
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.-

Sometimes, I begin to ponder over the mindset of humanity!
Let a person who yesterday was unknown to anyone, yes, whose character, whose trustworthiness has not been tested, excel as a footballer, athlete, a model, a film actor, and all of a sudden, that individual is catapulted into the limelight of the world.
Soon the world sees in them ROLE MODELS worthy of emulation by the youth!!
To be fair to the individuals involved, the office of Role Model was not of their own choosing. Some of them may well prefer to live quieter lives away from the limelight. They hardly succeed in doing so however; having imposed the roles on them, society goes to great lengths—welcome to Paparazzi land!—to ensure they remain on the centre-stage of our attention.
Dear Christian friends, as far as we are concerned there is one and only one Role Model, the Lord Jesus Christ. He alone should be our source of reference in all things. If we happen to be parents of young children, we should not be weary of directing them to the only role model worthy of their attention, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Friday, August 5, 2022
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV) we read:
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.-

Words of encouragement! Words that seek to uplift those facing troubles, problems and challenges of various kinds—how worthwhile. No matter our positions in society, no matter how strong we are in our Christian faith, we all need words of encouragement meant to motivate and inspire us in our life.
Conversely, consider how much derogatory words or comments can negatively impact on us.Several years ago, when I applied for Asylum in Berlin, I shared the same room with a few other Asylum seekers. I was desirous of studying medicine. The chances of gaining admission was not good. To have the faintest chance of my application being considered, I needed to show proof of my ability to speak the German language—which I could not do!
With no money to register at a German language school to learn the language, I was left with no other option than to attempt to do so on my own. Towards that goal I acquired a “Teach yourself German” book and went about the almost impossible task of teaching myself the new language. My room mates, instead of giving me words of encouragement to boost my morale, or at least remaining neutral, sought to discourage me with statements like: “Why waste your time learning this difficult language? No one would after all think of offering an Asylum seeker the chance to study at the Uni!” Had I listened to them, I would certainly not have achieved my goal.
Dear Christian friends, let us pray to the Lord for wisdom so we may find the right words, indeed, uplifting words, to build one another up instead of words that discourage us.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Thursday, August 4, 2022
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In Galatians 6:17 we read:
From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

Though the practice has been discontinued, at the time of my birth it was common practice for parents of the Akan population group to which I belong to inflict a cut to the face—on one or both cheeks—of their few-days-old babies. The wounds healed leaving a mark on the affected cheek(s). Such marks became known as tribal marks; marks that set a particular tribe aside from all others.
Today, as far as the Akans are concerned, the practice has virtually died away.
In later life some bearers of such marks, for various reasons, undertake efforts—including paying for cosmetic surgery—to rid themselves of the facial scar or scars as the case may be.
As I write this piece in 2018, though the tribal mark on my right cheek has grown faint, it is still visible. I have no intention of taking any measures aimed at getting rid of it.
St Paul in the above verse is said to have been referring to the scars resulting from the wounds inflicted on him in his service for the Lord.
I believe we can also refer to a “spiritual tribal mark”, the Holy Spirit, that sets us apart from the other “tribes”, indeed. which enables us not only to live Christ-like lives, but which also repels any attempt by the powers of darkness to inflict harm on us.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Tuesday, August 2, 2022
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In Isaiah 41:10 we read:
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Once on a flight from Accra to Dusseldorf, we had been in the air for about two hours when an announcement was made to the effect that the Algerian authorities had refused us permission to enter their airspace so we were returning to Accra.
No one told us the reason behind the decision of the authorities of the North African country to deny us access to their air space. Eventually I got to know that it involved money—the airline had failed to settle a bill despite repeated calls on the them to do so.
So, after spending a total of about four hours in the air we returned to where we had set off—back to square one!
Are you going through your back to square one experience my dear Christian friend? Having done the required research with due diligence, you went for a loan to establish a business. You had put your best foot forward. You are indeed hardworking. You have made your very best effort—yet still no progress.
Whereas all your peers have settled down to start their families, your search for your future partner is not making any progress; you meet someone today who raises your hopes only for things to crash before your eyes a few weeks later—back to square one!
Don’t resign yourself to your situation, my dear Christian friend.
“Back to square one” is by no means your destiny. It may be the Almighty God in whom you have trusted is just testing your resolve, just testing your faith and commitment to your call. One thing I can assure you, He will in His own time surely remove the obstacles that prevent you from realising your destiny. His message to you as you wait on Him is: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Tuesday, August 2, 2022
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In Psalm 55:22 we read:
Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

I wish sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, that Almighty God will spare us all the burdens and afflictions of life. Since we live in a fallen world there is no guarantee, however, that we shall always be spared trouble. How do we react in such a situation? As Christians, there is no other place to run to but to Christ our Lord. We must cultivate an attitude of looking up to Christ in all situations, whether good or bad. Easier said than done!
Indeed, how many headaches have we had to endure? How many anxious thoughts have threatened to blow our heads apart? Yes, in truth, how many distressing thoughts have robbed us of our sleep in anticipation of trouble that never showed up! Oh yes, how many problems have we borrowed today from tomorrow, from a tomorrow that may never arrive?
I have myself gone through times when anxious thoughts occupied my mind. Now, looking back on those periods in my life, I realise how pointless my state of apprehension was. Apart from causing me a few sleepless nights, it did not have any influence on the course of events.
Dear Christian friends, if only we would learn to put our burdens on the shoulders of the Lord instead of carrying them ourselves, how many problems that plague us—anxiety, tension headaches, sleep disturbance, depression—would be averted.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Monday, August 1, 2022
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In Judges 6:31 we read:
And Joash said unto all that stood against him, Will ye plead for Baal? will ye save him? he that will plead for him, let him be put to death whilst it is yet morning: if he be a god, let him plead for himself, because one hath cast down his altar.

We serve a living Jesus, who seeks to change hearts through love. He does not force Himself on anyone. In the face of provocation, he did not retaliate. While we may become upset by those who make mockery of His name, our protest should remain peaceful.
In this connection, I find it difficult to come to terms with the adherents of a religion, the name of which I do not want to mention here, who create the impression that they have to fight personally to defend their religion. When I see adherents of that religion on TV wielding swords and machetes, threatening to tear to pieces the bodies of those they regard as having insulted the dignity of their religion, I wonder why they feel the need to go to such lengths, resorting even to violence.
Why, at all, should ordinary humans create the impression of wanting to fight God’s fight for Him? If Almighty God is supreme—and I am really convinced He is indeed—it is surely not up to me, common man of flesh who today is and tomorrow is, as it were, blown away with the wind, fight His fight for him. If He will sit down unconcerned whilst others take advantage of Him, so be it!
Dear fellow Christian soldiers, let’s pray the Lord to imbue our hearts with abundant love and compassion, so we may be in a position to show affection and sympathy even in the face of provocation and insult.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Sunday, July 31, 2022.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 we read:
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.

Dear fellow soldier of the Cross of Calvary, no matter the problem or problems confronting you, the problem or problems that is/are threatening to crush your body into minute, microscopic, pieces—from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet—rest assured that the Lord of Creation will surely respond to your cries; to your persistent calls for help!
You might as well despatch an e-mail, SMS, WhatsApp or whatever other forms of modern communication there are, to the camp of your enemies, your foes who are just about to clink their champagne glasses to celebrate what they think is your imminent demise, to tell them that the Lord of Creation will arise and fight on your behalf.
Indeed, help is coming; coming your way. Even should the seconds begin to tick towards zero; yes even just at the moment when the referee has begun the countdown: ten!, nine!, eight! seven!… even as you lie prostrate on your back at one corner of the ring, helpless and defenceless, the forces of darkness surrounding you on all sides, eagerly awaiting the “z-e-r-o” to issue from the throat of the referee, to fiercely pounce on you to tear your flesh apart; yes even apparent as defeat is staring you in the face, I still urge you not to be overcome by despair. Yes for sure , the Lord will intervene on your behalf to shame all those up against you!
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Saturday, July 30, 2022.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In Psalm 34:7 we read:
The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

When I visited Johannesburg, South Africa, in February 2007, I realised that almost every house in the rich residential area boasted not only thick concrete walls; the properties were also equipped with sophisticated alarm systems. As if that were not enough—bold notices had been placed along the walls to warn the outside world that whoever attempted to break in would be met with a swift armed response.
Our modern world has come up with advanced high-tech alarm systems to help secure our homes from robbers. Even the most state-of-the-art alarm system, when activated , requires a certain amount of time for the appropriate response to be effected. For sure, no matter how swift the armed police or security officers may make it to the scene in response to the ringing of the alarm bells triggered by our advanced surveillance system, the intruders to our property would still have a few seconds at their disposal to cause us harm or escape as the case may be.
That, however, is not what the composer of Psalm 34 is declaring. He is pointing to protection offered by the angels of the living God to those who trust in Him, that is the powerful, all encompassing protection at the disposal of all who call on the Name of the Lord with a clean heart.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In Isaiah 54:17 we read:
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

God Almighty, the creator of the whole universe—of the planets, the sun, the galaxies: yes everything seen and unseen—from the tiny bacteria to the huge whales of the ocean, from the mighty lion to the little mouse, from the beautiful roses to the thorns and thistles of the field, is assuring those who are seeking refuge in Him, that no weapons formed against them will prosper.
Yes indeed Almighty God who called the huge mountains, the vast oceans, the arid deserts etc. into existence, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the God Everlasting has signed a declaration from heaven promising to defend His children of from EVERY weapon directed against them!
To get even the faintest idea of what Almighty God is promising, let us imagine the tiny ant having the huge elephant for protection!
Let us picture the little and vulnerable mouse entering into a defence pact with the mighty and fierce lion, the lion guaranteeing the mouse a lifelong protection from his most dreaded enemy, the cat!
We might well consider the situation where a dollar billionaire from somewhere in our global village travels to an impoverished village in my native Ghana and picks up the most destitute child he/she spots playing on the street and declares in the presence of the whole world: “I swear by my honour, that I will make sure this little child never tastes poverty throughout the rest of his/her days on earth!!”
We have a more sure protection, from Almighty God, dear Christian friends so let’s not fear tomorrow. Come what may, our protection is assured.

GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In Psalm 103:8 we read:
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

In 2009 the British Humanist association run an advert campaign to the theme: “There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life".
The inscription was printed boldly on buses , tube stations and other public places. I asked myself, then and ask myself today: what motivated them?
Now taking a closer look at the wording of their campaign I asked myself-- if they were very convinced in their assertion, why did they not leave it with the plain formulation-- THERE IS NO GOD!
I also had issues with the phrase: “ Now stop worrying and enjoy your life” . The phrase created the false impression that those who believe in God, cannot enjoy life. Personally, I am happy and enjoying my life, so why did they want to speak on my behalf?
I do not know how much it cost for them to run the campaign. An article I read about the campaign had it that they managed to raise more than £140,000 through public donations.
It is worthy of note that one of their prominent supporters, a world-renowned Professor of science has in the meantime passed on.
I wish he could come back to life to realise how futile his attempt was, for even today , million upon million are calling upon He who was yesterday , is today and shall evermore be!
My dear Christian friends, let’s keep on praying for those who claim there is no God, that they may come out of spiritual blindness to behold the goodness of the Lord.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In Jeremiah 17:9 we read:
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

The heart of man is wicked and wicked and wicked. In 1995, then a student in Hanover, I visited a friend also a student. He handed me printout of fresh news he had received from Ghana?
Where did you get such first hand report from home.
“The internet.” Was his reply.
“The internet ; what is that? “
Well it is an interconnection of computers. We resort to it a lot in the engineering department. Among other things , I get access to research material.
Shortly after the meeting I made my first contact with the internet. Soon I set up my first e-mail account.
The internet, what a great invention.
Without it, I wouldn’t, be engaged in this my online ministry.
As in all aspects of life on a fallen planet, soon the sinful heart of man also discovered the internet.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Yes indeed, the same heart which built both the civilian plane and the fighter bomber, the same heart that invented nuclear power that can produce electricity for peaceful use and the nuclear bomb for human annihilation, yes indeed the same heart which can be as merciful as the Good Samaritan and as evil as Adolf Hitler also discovered the internet and with it online pornography, online terror, online spread of paedophile material!
Dear Christian soldiers, let us be vigilant, let us pray Almighty God to preserve ourselves, our children and the world at large from evil side of the amazing internet.
May His name be blessed, Amen..
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Tuesday, July 26, 2022.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In John 8:32 we read:
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

As far as our Christian calling goes, truth is the unadulterated word of God and not what is thought , for example by human institutions – no matter how well respected .
Much as we should listen to the teachings of men and women of God, the bottom-line is that the Word of God is the final arbiter in spiritual matters.
Reading through the Gospels, my own layman’s view is that the common sense the Lord has placed at our disposal aided by the working of the Holy Spirit is sufficient to lead us to a reasonably good understanding of the word of God, an understanding that should be enough to help us lead lives expected of our Holy calling.
The other day, I heard a pastor in my native Ghana teaching on radio that even children are required to pay tithes out of the pocket monies they receive from their parents (if any). Another church , attended mainly by natives of my country of birth was asking their members to pay tithe out of the child benefit they were receiving from the German welfare state system!
I may be wrong, but my common sense tells me that such an interpretation of scripture amounts to overstepping the rules, yes to putting unnecessary burdens on the sons and daughters of Precious Jesus.
Let us pray , fellow Christian soldier , for wisdom, yes pure wisdom from the source of all wisdom—wisdom that will, among others, enable us differentiate truth from falsehood in the interpretation of His Word.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

In John 11:25 - 26 we read:
I am the resurrection, and the life. He that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live and whoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.

You who are mourning your loved one, from whose eyes the tears are so freely flowing, In a moment like this you may want to be left alone to wrestle with your sorrows alone, far from the presence of any human being. Still, I wish to express my heartfelt condolence and assure you that you are not alone in your difficult hour. Yes, the unseen Companion in whom you have placed your trust is by your side! Listen to Him as He whispers into your ears: ‘I am the resurrection and the life – he who believes in me shall never die.’
You who are devastated by the sudden loss of a dear one: In moments like this we are tempted to question the Love of the Lord and wonder why the Loving one would allow such sorrow to visit our home. Christian friend, I have not come to provide suitable answers to your why’s but I have come to urge you in the Name of the Lord of Heaven and Earth, in the Name of the Faithful One who called you out of the dark into light, yes, in the Name of Him whose Peace passeth all human understanding, to dry your tears and not be overcome by grief.
You who are grieving the departure of a loved one, I pray the Divine Comforter to send His angels to your home to sing a heavenly melody to cheer you up and revive your downcast spirit. May the great Comforter send a beam of light to dissipate the deep darkness surrounding you that you may be enabled to behold the Lord standing by the empty tomb of Calvary. So weep not like one without hope, dear one, for all who place their trust in Him, death has evermore been defeated!
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Saturday, July 23, 2022.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In Psalm 147:5 we read:
Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.--

The problem with humanity is that we tend to place limitations on the power and authority of Almighty God. Limited as the brain is in scope of understanding –it is even not able to understand itself!—we tend to think that applies in the case of Almighty God as well.
When the Bible, for example, teaches that Almighty God caused the Red Sea to part in two to allow Moses and the Israelites to walk on dry land, the atheist, the Darwinists, the sceptics and what have you, respond with statements like: that is a fairy tale, a fairy tale that only the unenlightened can believe! Such a deed is physically impossible; no never can that be!
Impossible, too hard, too difficult! Impossible—for whom? Hard—for whom? Difficult—for whom? Imagine setting artificial boundaries on Divine Authority! Placing natural barriers on what the Lord can do and cannot do! Placing scientific limitations on the ability of the Divine to intervene in the affairs of His world!
We may have our doubts as to whether Almighty God is capable of causing the Red Sea to part to allow His will to be fulfilled. That is our problem—not His! He might as well cause the Atlantic Ocean to part to allow His chosen ones to drive on dry land from Scotland to Canada or the East Coast of the USA! Placing restrictions on the power and might of the Lord of Host—imagine!
My fellow Christian soldiers, let us pray the Lord, to increase our faith, faith that will give us victory over our doubts and reservations.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.

In John 11: 43-44 we read:
And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. In

At the grave of Lazarus, the Lord of Creation demonstrated , before several witnesses, His creation powers as infallible evidence for the doubters, sceptics, agnostics and what have you.
The Lord decided not even to touch the body of the dead to affect a direct transfer of His Creative powers. He chose instead just to send out the Word. Let us just ponder the matter! The mere sound waves that emanated from Him at the opening of His mouth carried enough Creation power to restore, in the time it takes to blink an eye, life back to the decomposing body of Lazarus.
At death all the trillion plus cells in our body suffer irreversible damage and cease to function. That is what science has found out to be the case; that is the scientific reality. Well, you can throw scientific reality to the dogs in the presence of the Supernatural One! Throw them into the garbage bin, my friend. Indeed, at the command ‘Lazarus, come forth!’ all the trillion plus cells in the body of the dead man, cells that had suffered irreversible damage, became instantaneously active and functional. They did not undergo repair, mind you! No they were re-created by He who created everything to begin with!.
Dear Christian soldier! Please do not allow the so-called learned of our day, who are going about spreading the falsehood of evolution and all the lies associated with it confuse or deceive you. We are indeed wonderfully created by Almighty God!
Stay blessed, my dear fellow soldier of the Cross of Calvary.

This is the DAY

In Isaiah 41:13 we read:
For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Thursday, July 21, 2022.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

When I was growing up there was no school in our little village so we had to walk a distance of about three kilometres to attend the primary school at a comparatively larger village. When I got to Primary 5, something happened to me that threatened to bring about an abrupt end to my education. All of a sudden, and for no apparent cause, my left ankle began to swell up. Initially the accompanying discomfort was bearable, permitting me to continue to attend school. In time, however, the pain increased in intensity. Despite the increasing discomfort, I refused initially to stay out of school. I enjoyed going to school and stayed away only when it was absolutely impossible for me to go.
A time eventually came when no choice was left for me other than to stay at home. So unbearable was the pain that I could hardly stand on the affected leg. That interruption in my education lasted for two long years.
Just when the whole world seemed to have given up on me, the Lord of heaven and earth lifted up His hands and turned things around, not only to enable me to walk without a walking aid but also to enable me to resume my education.
Just in the same way the Lord turned things around for me, I trust him to turn around the situation of His children reading through these lines who are saddled with diverse problems.
Has your business collapsed? Have you out of disease, probably chronic low back pain been forced to give up your job? Have you lost your job and threatened with the repossession of your home as a result? Is everything falling apart around you? Has everyone given up on you—including yourself?
Well, hope in the Lord my friend; he is the friend of the friendless, hope for the despairing, good health for the terminally ill.
So keep on trusting the turn around God. He will surely visit your home, ere it is too late!
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ, Amen.
