This is the DAY

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Wednesday, July 8, 2020.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
In Luke 11:24-26 we read:
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

There is a saying that ‘nature abhors a vacuum'. The saying expresses the fact that empty or unfilled spaces are unnatural as they go against the laws of nature and physics. Nature abhors a vacuum. What is true in the physical world is also true in the spiritual. There can be no spiritual vacuum in the life of an individual whether they like it or not. No one can indeed exist in a vacuum in the midst of the spiritual battle raging today. For sure, no one can assume neutrality.
The atheist, yes, he or she who does not believe in God, may want to assume neutrality in the matter. If only he or she would come to the realisation that that is not possible.
Almighty God does indeed give us the choice to decide. He does not force anyone to take sides. It is not His nature to force our coerce humanity, the product of His own creation, into worshiping Him.
Whereas Almighty God accepts spiritual neutrality, indeed does not force His will on anyone, the Devil is not so forthcoming. In fact, Satan, a.k.a. Lucifer and the demons who do to his bidding, do not recognize neutrality. They go around looking for hearts devoid of Light from above – the Light they are unable to withstand. The moment they identify any such vacancy, they force themselves in, uninvited, and entrench themselves there. Yes, certainly, Satan will occupy the void in an individual whether he or she likes it or not.
Dear Christian soldier, if indeed we have accepted the Lord into our lives, let’s hold tenaciously to our hope and not allow anything to distract us from our goal.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Tuesday, July 7, 2020.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
In 2 Kings 6:17 we read:
And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. In 2 Kings 6:17 we read:

Open his eyes, that he may see!
Elisha’s servant was not physically blind. No, he was not, he could see clearly. Physically he could see quite clearly; indeed, he was able to behold the invading army from a distance; and yet he was afflicted with a different kind of blindness – spiritual blindness.
I personally have made it a habit not to argue with those who claim to be atheists. Rather than argue with them, I pray for them. I am reminded in this connection of Apostle Paul in his days as Saul of Tarsus – yes, at the time when he was persecuting the church; do you think at that time he would have listened to anyone who came to him to argue his case about the reality of the Crucified Christ? I am not saying we should not make efforts to tell them about our faith. We should however desist from argument, prolonged arguments.
The blind Saul, the persecutor of the church, needed to have his eyes opened to see beyond the here and now and into the spiritual reality.
The atheist indeed has a physical perspective. What he or she needs is spiritual insight, and that cannot be attained, by our efforts, but through grace. So it is imperative for us, fellow Christian soldiers, to pray for such individuals, that a higher power might be invoked to sweep away their blindness.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Monday, July 6, 2020.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
In Luke 6:47-48 we read:
Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built a house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.

We live in a globalised world. From time to time television, the internet as well as other media outlets, bring raging storms, hurricanes, typhoons, etc., right into our living rooms. Though not physically present, we are enabled to have a glimpse of the force behind the ferocious hurricanes and typhoons and the catastrophic high winds and deadly storm surges associated with them.
The Lord is saying that whoever listens to His words and does them is like a person who has built his house on a rock – the type of house capable of withstanding tornadoes, hurricanes and typhoons however ferocious.
Such types of buildings are not spared the battering by the monstrous storms. The tempests and cyclones and what-have-you may indeed succeed in ripping off their roofs and shattering their window; yet try as the elements may, they can never succeed in uprooting them! Why should they when they are grounded on the Rock, yes, the Power that holds the whole Universe in His hands!

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Sunday, July 5, 2020.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
In Romans 6:1-2 we read:
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

As a student in Germany I earned extra income by working as a translator in my mother tongue, the Twi language (spoken in Ghana) for the authorities, including the police.
On one occasion the law enforcing agents needed me to translate the telephone conversations – both recorded and live – of an individual suspected of belonging to an international drug smuggling ring.
As it turned out the suspect had a girlfriend who was engaged in prostitution in the red-light area of the city. On one occasion the lady called her friend to complain bitterly about the worsening business climate, indeed about the fall in the number of clients she was receiving. In her exasperation she cried out: “Please Lord Jesus, help me today by drawing a decent number of clients to my booth!” I prayed the Lord to save her from her crooked ways, for she was, in effect, bending the rules to suit her own end.
“Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?”
Dear Christian friend, let’s pray the good Lord for the grace required to walk in the path of righteousness, today and for ever more. May His Name be praised and glorified.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Saturday, July 4, 2020.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
In Proverbs 3: 5-6 we read:
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Indeed, if we have the God of Jacob as our friend, if indeed we have left all to follow the Good Shepherd, then we have to learn to trust Him to direct our steps for good.
Apparent disappointments may come our way, but we are assured in Romans 8:28 (KJV) that “all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
For sure, all things will work together for us, probably not in the way we had anticipated, but He who knows the end form the beginning knows what is best for us. Aware that the journey we are about to embark upon will end in catastrophe, it is in His nature to preserve us, His loving ones from danger. Our tyre may burst even before we set off; electric malfunctions may prevent the engine from starting; our gears may fail to engage. We who can only see the present are inclined under such circumstances to react angrily!
If only He would open our eyes to reveal to us the dangers ahead of us, we would cease from murmuring.
Dear Christian friends, if we have put our trust in the Lord, let us learn to accept whatever comes our way, however unpalatable. May the Name of the Lord be blessed and glorified, Amen!

May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Friday, July 3, 2020.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
In Psalm 121: 3-4 we read:
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

When faced with drawbacks and hurdles in our Christian walk, and our prayers seem to fall on deaf ears, we seem to think that perhaps God is overstrained, so occupied responding to the prayers of His children elsewhere on the globe, that He may not have ears for our own problems. By our attitudes, we seem to create the impression that we cannot imagine how the same person could simultaneously respond to:
The prayers of a resident in New Zealand imploring Him to protect him/ her as he/she retires to bed at the end of the day;
A mighty man of God calling on Him to cast out demons and heal the sick at a big revival meeting taking place in the afternoon of the same day in Nairobi;
The little girl in Los Angeles imploring Him to guide and guard her through the same day that is about to begin there.
‘Maybe Our God is resting for a while! We better allow Him time to enjoy His deserved respite and not disturb Him.’ So we decide to seek help elsewhere – Astrology, New Age thinking, Juju, Voodoo! We consult the soothsayers, to plead with them to reveal the future to us, to tell us what lies in store for us in the future! Thus going around to let others reveal the future to us! Who controls the future in the first place!? So we read our stars everyday to know what the stars have in store for us! The stars – what are the stars when you are resting in a God who never changes – and who made the stars?!
Why do we want to know what the stars have in store for us when the Good Lord of heaven and earth, has sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in us? Are we not aware of the Divine assurance that “greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world?” (I John 4:4)
We do not indeed need to know what the stars have in store for us, for we are assured in Psalm 23:6 that goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our life!
Yes for sure "he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep”, so let’s remain calm and collected and not waver in the face of the challenges of life.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Thursday, July 2, 2020.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
In John 9: 25 we read:
He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.

For the sake of those not familiar with the story, I shall provide a short background:
Jesus was passing with His disciples. They saw a man born blind. Jesus mixed his saliva with some mud and applied the mixture to his eyes and urged him to go and wash in the Pool of Siloam.
He was healed in the process and went about glorifying God. Eventually he was brought before the Pharisees. They accused Jesus of breaking the Sabbath and urged the healed to give glory to God, but not Jesus whom they regarded as a sinner. It was in the course of the discourse that the person who had benefitted from the miraculous healing encounter made the compelling statement: Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
Oh, what a statement! I beg to make it my own—
“Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.” Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Thank you, Jesus, thank you Lord, thank you for healing a blind man like me; glory, glory to You! I earnestly wish the blind man was around today! I would extend an invitation to him and urge him to repeat that statement several times in my hearing, if he would. Lost in sin and blind to spiritual things, the Lord called me and gave me hope not only in regard to this world, but also the hope of everlasting life.
Of course, you and I know, Christian warriors, that our Commander in Chief is sinless; indeed, we even know that He is the Son of God who sets the sinner free.
Yes, we care less about those who say and publish all sorts of things to discredit our Saviour. Indeed, no matter what the unbeliever might do or say to discredit our Lord, you and I can declare with all boldness and confidence, notwithstanding allegations that He may be “this and/or that”, that we know above all – that whereas we were blinded by sin, now we see!

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Wednesday, July 1, 2020.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
In Genesis 3:19 we read:
In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Human beings have over the years invested much effort and resources to tackle diseases of all kind. Just as you are reading through these lines, somewhere in the world, in the sophisticated laboratories of chemical and pharmaceutical giants such as AstraZeneca, Bayer, Eli Lilly, Pfizer, etc., advanced experiments are under way to discover the cure for hitherto incurable diseases such as HIV, various kinds of motor neurone diseases, various forms of cancer and also to improve the qualities of some of the drugs already in use in the fight against various forms of diseases.
In one aspect of our existence, namely in the matter of death, however, try as the most sophisticated brains among us would, we remain powerless. As it was yesterday, so it is today, and so it will continue to be, for so it has been ordained by The Giver of life, the Master of Creation, the ‘I am that I am’, Jehovah Jireh, God the Almighty, God the Omnipotent and Omnipresent.
As Christian soldiers, we need not fear the inevitable fate of mortal man, though, for indeed our Commander-in-Chief has boldly declared:
“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” John 6: 25-26 (KJV)
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Tuesday , June 30, 2020.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
In Isaiah 66:9 we read:
I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born, says the Lord.

I was privileged to witness the birth of a baby as a second-year medical student doing my electives at a district hospital in a little town not far from Hanover, the northern German city where I was resident. For the first time in my life I witnessed at first hand a woman in labour—a soon-to-be mother enduring the pain, indeed the intense pain, of childbirth.
What I observed shortly after the beautiful little girl who was christened Ina was delivered is engraved deeply in my memory. Indeed, the moment the new mother looked upon the little new arrival placed on her bosom, she beamed with joy at the sight of her wonderful baby. Vanished in a twinkle of the eye was the agony, yes, the pain that was evident in her face moments before as she pushed, and pushed hard to deliver her lovely baby.
Child of God going through intense affliction and sorrow, I cannot explain why our loving Father has allowed misfortune to visit your home. I do indeed wish from the bottom of my heart, that you are spared the anguish of new challenges.
Who am I, a man of flesh, to determine the course of events in your life? One thing I can do, however, is to urge you to take comfort in today’s Bible verse. Indeed, our heavenly Father “will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born.”
May the pain of today usher you into the joy of tomorrow.

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.

When I was growing up in the little village Mpintimpi, in Ghana, I assisted my parents in their daily chores, including work on the farm.
After several hours of hard work, we had to carry the crops harvested from the farmland on our heads over a considerable distance back home.Carrying the load on our heads was a neck-breaking affair. Our situation was not made easy by the scorching African sun. On other occasions, we were pounded mercilessly by torrential rains accompanied by ferocious winds.
Imagine, your neck breaking under the heavy load you are carrying and at the same time sweating under the scorching African sun, or being pounded mercilessly by torrential tropical rain! In such situations, the picture that would flash through my mind on a regular basis was the compound of our home. Nothing around me was important but home – home that would bring relief to my misery.
Dear Christian friend, whose neck is breaking under the heavy load you are bearing, I urge you to endure, yes to hold on, to keep focussed on your goal, on the Lord hanging on the cross of Calvary, bleeding and sweating, just for your sake! Soon, very soon, the Great Burden Bearer will come your way to relieve you of the load weighing you down.
So hold on, stand firm and don’t quit!
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ, Amen.

In Psalm 91: 9- 10 we read:
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.

One day in November, 2018, as I listened to the radio while driving to a meeting, it was reported that the database of a renowned international hotel had been compromised, leading to the data of millions of their customers being stolen.
That led me to reflect on matters related to the spiritual realm of our existence. Every day Satan is going around, stealing and compromising the database of human beings and thereby enslaving them.
Christian soldiers need not fear the foe, however. For, because we have made the LORD our refuge, “no evil shall befall us; neither shall any plague come nigh our dwelling.”
Yes indeed, the Lord we serve has built a super virus defence system around us so we do not need to fear the clandestine attempts of the Devil to infiltrate our spiritual computer, our divine software, to damage our system and take control over us.

In John 16:33 we read:
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Reflecting on the above verse, E.G. White, one of the founders of the SDA church, wrote: “Christ did not fail, neither was He discouraged, and His followers are to manifest a faith of the same enduring nature. They are to live as He lived, and work as He worked, because they depend on Him as the great Master Worker. Courage, energy, and perseverance they must possess. Though apparent impossibilities obstruct their way, by His grace they are to go forward. Instead of deploring difficulties, they are called upon to surmount them. They are to despair of nothing, and to hope for everything.”
With the above words of encouragement, I wish you a blessed day, fellow soldier of Christ.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Friday , June 26, 2020.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
In Matthew 11: 28-30 we read:
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Burdens we all carry. Indeed, the list of burdens afflicting mankind is endless.
Society seem to think that those who are successful in their respective spheres of activity, have no burdens to bear. Indeed, we seem to fancy that if we became millionaires or even billionaires our burdens will go away. Not on our fallen planet, dear friend, not on our fallen planet! Becoming a millionaire could, perhaps, eliminate our material burdens; not so our spiritual loads.
Some of us were abused as children; yes, we could have been sexually abused as children. The recollection of our painful past coupled with the present difficulties may result in depression, mental agony, a sense of hopelessness, etc.
Some of us are afflicted with the burden of a troubled relationship. Much as we do our best to bring harmony to our home, discord seems to hold permanent sway over our affairs.
“Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” The logical inference from this Divine call is to see the whole of mankind lining up before the Lord, one after the other, to lay before Him their respective burdens, yes the burdens plaguing them and threatening to break their necks.
The reality though is that for whatever reason, many of us prefer to bear our burdens alone.
Dear Christian friends, let us learn to bring our burdens, however many, yes however heavy, before the Great Burden bearer instead of seeking to carry them on our own.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ, Amen.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Thursday, June 25, 2020.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
In Deuteronomy 28:7 we read:
The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you. They shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.

When I was in Year 8 in school, I accompanied some of my mates to empty the letterbox of our school. It was a time of youthful exuberance, adventure and banter! After we had collected our mail, someone suggested we tried our key in other letterboxes. One of them, probably without an owner, happened to be unlocked. The moment one of my mates inserted the key into it, it opened! Just at that very moment the postmaster, a very stern person in his forties, appeared from nowhere! He accused us of attempted theft. For reasons best known to himself, he singled me out for blame. He wouldn’t let the matter rest. He held me by the collar of my shirt and dragged me to the local police station, a stone’s throw away. Was it because the police did not want to incur the displeasure of one of the influential residents of the settlement? I cannot tell for sure, but one thing happened for sure—they decided to lock me up in one of their cells! The news of my detention spread like wildfire.
Eventually, after spending several hours behind bars, my father managed to convince them to set me free!
Dear Christina friend, do you have the impression that the devil has picked you out, yes, singled you out of the crowd for special attention?
Indeed, whereas your peers, your schoolmates, your social media friends, yes everyone seems to be progressing, you are struggling to make ends meet. You are not by any means lazy! Indeed, you have made your very best effort—to no avail. To make things even worse, you have recently been a victim of online scam, wiping away the very last savings you can boast of! I have a word for you, dear Child of God: do not fear, for “the Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you. They shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.”

In Philippians 4:13 we read:
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” -

With the Lord on his or her side, the Christian soldier need not fear what tomorrow will bring. Wealth cannot give us that assurance, for as the saying goes, money has a way of taking wings and flying.
We might have heard or read about instances when millionaires have gone bankrupt, indeed have lost all or almost all.
A crash of the Global financial market, the likes of what was witnessed in 1998 could lead to the wiping away of our investments.
Our properties, yes real estate investment, cannot offer perfect security—the earth on which they are built can quake to send them crumbling.
Political heavyweights, those who wield authority, the likes of the President of the US, when they leave office become ordinary citizens.
Christian soldier, let us build on the Lord! Yes, let us draw close to Him, for indeed, it is He alone who can see us through our problems, however mighty they might be.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ, Amen.

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

In Psalm 42:11 we read: Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

Friend, you may today be bearing a cross, a cross that is so heavy it threatens to break your neck. Pray to heaven for the grace to bear it, pray to heaven for the strength to persevere; pray to the Divine to bestow upon you the strength and grace to endure as you await the mysterious hand of the Loving One to bring a change in your situation—to turn your cross into a crown of glory.
Oh, I can see Heaven has already dispatched angels to your assistance! So, stand up and begin to dance, child of God! Shake, shake your body; brush off the dust of depression, of resignation, of the negative thoughts that beset you, which cause you to be cast down by a feeling of helplessness and sadness!
Tell the feeling of gloom to leave your home, the atmosphere of dejection to leave your living room, the spirit of negative thoughts to take flight and flee. “Hey you, Negative thoughts, you spirit of depression clouding the thoughts of my fellow Christian soldier, I charge you in the Almighty Name of the Lord to flee. Flee, flee, in Jesus’ name!”
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ, Amen.

In Isaiah 43:2 we read:
When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.

That is comforting and soothing at the same time—to be assured of Divine presence in time of need!
Every Christian from time to time may have to go through ‘deep waters’. It is part of our human existence on a fallen planet.
Child of God, are you going through your deep waters? Are the waters rising, rising and rising—first knee level, then up to the navel, then the nipples. I see your lower jaw is now submerged in the still-rising waters!
You are looking around for help—but help seems nowhere near! The situation is desperate; the outlook is grim, really grim. You turn your gaze to the heavens, and things don’t look promising for the skies are not clear and bright. Instead of a bright blue sky, you behold the gathering clouds announcing the imminent onset of yet more rains!
Even in such a harrowing state of affairs, do not lose hope for He who promised to be with you in deep waters is faithful and will keep his word; he will not abandon you, nor leave you to the mercy of the elements.
So, cheer up, despairing child of God, and await your sure rescue!
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ, Amen.

In Daniel 6: 16
Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee. In Daniel 6: 16

Do you have the impression that the principalities up against you are threatening to seize you and throw you into a spiritual ‘lions’ den’, to be devoured by the hungry lions being kept there? Do not be frightened by their threats, dear Christian soldier.
You may as well urge the Enemy to gather not only a few, but rather a multitude of fearful-looking lions and keep them in wait for you. You may as well urge your foes, yes those devolving malicious schemes against you, to go a step further and add a host of tigers, wolves, crocodiles, bears, hyenas, pythons to the fierce-looking lions already eagerly waiting for you. Even in that threatening situation, you need not fear. Instead, keep on waving the Christian banner and do not allow yourself to be intimidated.
Yes indeed, child of God, do not be scared; even though the witches, wizards, principalities—you can go on naming them—in high and low places, from the four corners of the earth, join forces against you, they will never succeed in harming you, indeed, in bringing their schemes to bear on you!
So fellow Christian, let’s keep marching fearlessly on, towards the New Jerusalem!
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ, Amen.

In John 20: 29 we read:
Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

This Bible passage may be familiar to many of us. In our day, there are those who seem to create the impression of only wanting to believe in God when they see Him! Why adopt such an attitude?
Do we switch on our radio every morning because we see the radio waves with our naked eye, or do we do so because we believe they exist?
When we dial numbers on our mobile phone in expectation of speaking to our dear ones, do we do so because we see the waves with our own eyes?
Those who, like Thomas, resort to adopting the “seeing is believing” excuse only need to cast their glance at the world around them, to behold the Hand of God at work in the Universes.
God’s creation is indeed huge. The birds of the air, the lilies of the field, the vast oceans, the huge mountains, etc., all point to the Hand of an Intelligent Designer, Almighty God, in the universe.
Dear Christian soldiers, let us remember the doubting Thomases of this world in prayer that they might come to know the truth, and that the truth will set them free.
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ, Amen.

This is the DAY

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Friday , June 19, 2020.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
. In 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 we read:
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

Have mercy Lord on your children who are tired and weary;
who in the face of the fierce battle raging
are on the verge of throwing in the towel;
’Ere we give up the righteous fight,
imbue us we pray with new vigour.

Have mercy on your children Lord
your children who are panicking,
who in the midst of the ferocious spiritual battle raging
are relying on their own strength for victory instead of in You.
Have mercy on your sheep, Divine Shepherd,
Your servants who in the midst of the fearsome fight raging
seem to have lost sight of the most effective weapon at our disposal—prayer!
Yes, teach us to bring all our cares and burdens before you in prayer instead of grieving your heart with our murmurings!
May the good Lord bless whatever we set out to do today.
To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ, Amen.
