LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Sunday, January 17, 2021
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it
In Psalm 118:8-9 we read: It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.

It is indeed important that we stand up in principle and not swim with the tide, or “Go with the Flow”. Yes, when it comes to Christian principles, it is important we hold on to established principles. You may ask me which? My answer is to check the Bible; if in doubt I suggest you keep initially to the four Gospels. Later as you become more established in the faith, you can venture into “more difficult terrain”. You may not understand everything, but I pray the Holy Spirit will lead and enlighten you to provide needed wisdom and strength.
There is indeed the tendency these days to “Go with the Flow.” “Everyone on social media finds it okay so it must be right,” I hear someone say. “BBC and CNN have given a positive review of a current specific trend in human relations, so it must be ‘cool’ to join the movement.”
During my days as a medical student, I used to work as a carer in my free time to supplement my income. Though several years have now elapsed, I still have vividly in mind a middle-aged patient we supported at his home. He was an HIV patient in an advanced stage of the disease. Apart from providing basic care we did his shopping for him and occasionally wheeled him around the neighbourhood.
He was downhearted much of the time. He never tired of expressing his disgust at his many male partners who had deserted him in his time of need. He was not blaming them for his situation, nor was he expecting them to be able to change the course of events. He yearned however for at least occasional visits from them. In his time of need his former pals had deserted him.
We must indeed be careful how we go about our lives. When the world provides cheerleaders for a behaviour pattern, we soldiers of the Cross need to turn to the Word of God for the final say in the matter.
I pray the Lord bestows upon us the needed wisdom to make the right choices – decisions consistent with our Holy calling.

GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it
In Daniel 3:16-18 we read:
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

That is an extraordinary example of trust and faith in God. Facing the prospect of terrible death through burning in the oven, the three gallant soldiers of the Cross remained faithful to their calling! Thankfully, hardly any one of us alive today may be placed in a situation where we have to make a choice between holding on to our faith our being burnt in the oven.
What we face now is spiritual warfare, yes, the battle against the spiritual powers of darkness, even demonic agents – Juju, Voodoo, witchcraft, etc. We should however not be intimidated by them. Let us indeed, like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, declare to the spiritual powers of darkness up against us that they may as well dispatch an e-mail to Nebuchadnezzar to urge him to heat his oven a thousand times above what he normally would to burn his enemies, for even so we are not afraid, nor scared, nor frightened of his threats!
Let us with one voice boldly declare:
“O Evil Tormentor of God’s children, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. In regard to your incessant attacks on the children of God, we strongly believe that the God we serve is able to deliver us from your hand, O merciless Tormentor.
“But even if He does not, we want you to know, O you Evil one, that we will never be intimidated by your assaults nor allow ourselves to be cajoled by your insinuations to deny the Lord our Righteousness. Yes, come what may, we want to declare to the whole world that we shall NOT BOW DOWN TO YOU!”

GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it
In Daniel 12:4 we read:
But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

We live in a fast-changing world. Not only has knowledge increased; the revolution in information technology has led to a situation whereby we are today bombarded with a flood of information – truths, half-truths, fake news.
Not only are we exposed to an ever-changing flood of information, the opinions and attitudes of society to various issues keep on changing all the time. What was shunned by society yesterday becomes the norm today, only to be discarded tomorrow.
Therein lies the conflict: Humanity versus God! We serve a God who CHANGETH NOT! Indeed, our God is the same yesterday, today and forever. The sons and daughters of men can change their minds here and there – that’s their problem, not God’s! The problem begins, though, when we, yes we mere products of flesh, seem to have the audacity to urge God to change His mind to, as it were, “move with the tide of time”!
My dear Christian friend, let us hold fast to Godly principles and resist the urge to swim with the crowd, indeed with the masses.
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 46: 1 we read:
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

During the time I worked as a doctor in various hospitals in Germany, I did emergency duty with the ambulance service from time to time. The emergency doctor accompanied by one or two paramedics was dispatched in an ambulance to provide assistance for patients with life-threatening conditions.
Even as I write, I have a vivid memory of one particular case that required our rapid intervention. It involved a patient who developed an anaphylactic reaction, yes a life-threatening condition in reaction to a bee sting. The lady in question was relaxing in her garden around midday on a beautiful day in summer when she was stung by a bee. The severe allergic reaction set in moments later. Soon she could hardly breathe! Fortunately, she was not alone at home. The astonished relatives alerted the emergency services without delay.
We managed to reach her quickly enough to prevent the worst from happening – indeed she made a complete recovery.
Circumstances beyond our control could have delayed our arrival though. Indeed, in some instances, we had, despite the priority we had on the road, no choice but to stop to give other forms of traffic the right of way – for instance, when we came to a railway crossing that had its barriers lowered.
Boasting such an able Commander-in-Chief, let us, fellow Christian soldier, with all boldness, perform our duties on the battlefield of life and not become weary of the forces bent on annihilating us! to have a bee sting allergy, God is already present providing first aid!
Boasting such an able Commander-in-Chief, let us, fellow Christian soldier, with all boldness perform our duties on the battlefield of life and not become weary of the forces bent on annihilating us!

GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it
In Psalm 42:5 we read:
Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

Are you undergoing struggles, trials, disappointments?
You are looking for a job. You have left no stone unturned.
You have invested your energy, time and resources to put your application together only to receive one rejection letter after the other.
At long last, a call for an interview! You put your best foot forward; yes, you invest time, energy to prepare for the upcoming interview.
You are optimistic you will get the job this time round!
You leave home several hours ahead of schedule, to ensure you get the job.
The interview goes well – at least that is the impression you get as you make your homeward journey. ‘I am going to get the job, I am surely going to get the job!’
You wait several days; contrary to the promise given to you, no one calls. You pick up the phone, call to find out what is happening—
“Sorry, but you were not successful.”
Throughout the day, you are downcast. ‘Why, me, why me?’
Hold on, my dear Christian friend!
Well, I too went through the same experience several times!
Don’t give up your faith friend, don’t give up. Stand firm.
The saying indeed is true – when God closes a door, He opens a window! You can be sure of that! Yes, you can bet on it.
The waiting may prove wearisome though, but stand, stand firm.
Based on my own experience, I can assure you, fellow Christians, that our God, whom we serve, will surely make a way when there seems to be no way.
So get up, dear Christian soldier, and keep jumping for Jesus – for we are indeed overcomers!

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Tuesday, January 12, 2021
GOOD DAY!
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it
In Psalm 27:1 we read:
The Lord is my light and Salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Do not murmur the words; do not declare them with a low voice. No, say it loud! Shout, scream, yell! Declare it at the top of your voice. Indeed, that is the attitude we have to adopt towards the great deceiver. For, certainly, Satan does not understand diplomatic language. No, diplomatic language should be left to the diplomats who are trained to choose their words with the aim of promoting cordial international relationships. Why the need for us to practice the art of word-weighing when we are confronted by a foe bent on destroying us at all cost?
How often do we hear people these days say things like – I am scared; it is frightening! I am scared; I am nervous, I am apprehensive! Even we, the sons and daughters of the Rock of Ages, yes, the children of the Good Shepherd, souls He has purchased with His own blood, are often heard telling the whole world how much we are afraid, or scared or apprehensive of this and that!
Not so David in this psalm; yes, he is declaring that come what may, he does not care, he does not bother – he does not mind! He is telling Satan to his face: “Hey you, don’t dare venture near my place of abode, near my husband, near my wife, near my children, near my place of work, near my car whether it is parked or in motion, near my business, near my bank accounts!” In short, he is telling Lucifer and all the demons under his control to his face that they can just go and get drowned in the mighty ocean!
Let us face this day, my dear Christian friend assured that our Lord is with us, so we need not fear – come what may!

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Monday, January 11, 2021
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In Proverbs 1:24-30 we read:
Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

Have you sat down to consider the matter, my dear friend? Whenever there is a catastrophic event on our planet, be it natural or man-made, the world tends to ask the question: “If there is a God why did He allow such a heinous crime or catastrophic earthquake, tsunami, drought, etc., to happen?”
Is it not strange, my good friends, how the world seems to consider God as a kind of spare tyre that they consult only in times of emergency?
When they meet to party and enjoy their lives, who cares about God?
When the lovers of the game of football gather at a huge sports stadium in one of the world capitals and also around TV sets around the globe to enjoy the FIFA World Cup final, who in such moments think about Almighty God?
When the world gathers around their TV sets to enjoy the American Super Bowl, does anyone in such ecstatic moments thank Almighty God for the free oxygen at our disposal?
Come catastrophe and disaster, then the world begins all of a sudden to heap insults at the Ancient of Days! What a patient and big-hearted God He is! If indeed we happened to possess the power and authority at the disposal of the Rock of Ages, wouldn’t we consider immediate retribution against such a bunch of insolents, known as humanity, who have the audacity to behave in such an appalling manner?
Dear Christian soldier, I pray the Lord to give us strength to endure whatever may come our way, however unpalatable it may be, and resist the temptation to question His love .

Help us help the poor, the vulnerable, the handicapped etc.Faith Without Works Is Dead
What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Sunday, January 10, 2021
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, Saturday, January 9, 2021
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.

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.

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, Thursday, January 7, 2021
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

In Matt. 5:13 we read: You are the salt of the earth.

As part of my medical training in Germany, I needed to do a one-year internship in the practice of a General Practitioner (GP) or a family doctor.
After submitting several applications and receiving several rejection letters, to my delight I finally received a letter inviting me for interview in a small town about 70 kilometres from Hanover. The General Practice concerned happened to be the only one in the little town. To my delight, my future boss assured me after the interview that he would take me on—we only needed to complete some paperwork related to the appointment.
Just as I was rejoicing at the opportunity, he called me a few days later to inform me that some members of the Practice team had expressed their reservation to the effect that the patients, who were predominantly German, may not be comfortable with me by dint of my African heritage. This was particularly so because it involved a rural population, most of whom had little or no dealings with Africans. I replied by saying that the final decision was his to make. On my part I would do my best if given the opportunity.
Over the following days, I prayed for the Lord to let his will be done. A few days later he called to confirm the job.
Apart from seeing patients in the practice, my duties included visiting those whose conditions prevented them from attending in the premises of the medical practise. This group included the few who were either living in old people’s homes or at home, in some case s alone in their large mansions. Because they were socially isolated, for these people the visiting doctor would be the first person they would talk to the whole day! Whenever my tight schedule permitted, I stayed on a few minutes to engage them in conversation over various issues, including of course my faith. Indeed, for some of them just being friendly to them, talking to them, smiling with them, was the only “medicine” they needed.
From the conversation I had with my boss towards the end of my duty, it appeared that the majority of the patients I saw wished that I had stayed on, if not indefinitely, for at least a much longer period.
Unfortunately, I needed to move on. With a heavy heart, one day, I parted company with my wonderful boss, the excellent team and the downhearted patients.
We are indeed the salt of the earth, my dear friends, so wherever we go, let us make our influence be felt.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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)

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
A new year has been ushered in; the past year has become history.
Whereas you and I have no idea of what lies ahead of us, I AM THAT I AM does!
Yes indeed, from the very moment that you are reading this piece, right through to December 31 and beyond, everything, and by that I really mean everything, is known to Him.
Not only does He know in advance what will happen to the universe, He also has foreknowledge of what lies ahead for each and every individual populating the surface of the earth up to the very last second of midnight December 31, 2019—and beyond!
I have drawn attention to the above for a purpose—to remind fellow Christian soldiers that we have a Friend, yes, a Commander-in-Chief who knows the end from the beginning, so we need not be afraid, come what may!
I want at this stage to invite my fellow Christian warrior to join me in casting any fears we are entertaining for the just begun year—and indeed beyond—into the dustbin. Our battle cry should indeed be “No fears yesterday, no fears today, no fears for tomorrow and beyond!”
We should indeed draw inspiration from today’s verse and face the future with full confidence.
Even more important, I pray the Lord of Heaven and Earth to grant us the grace and favour required for an even closer walk with Him.
Finally, on the basis of today’s scriptures, I am taking authority in the Mighty Name of the Lord to declare a breakthrough on all fronts for myself and my fellow Christian soldiers. A breakthrough at home and outside of the home; a breakthrough in health and finance—breakthrough through here, breakthrough there, breakthrough through everywhere!
There is indeed a future of hope for us and surely our hope will not be cut off!
--(Proverbs 23:18).
Happy New Year to myself and everyone!

This is the DAY

LET US REJOICE IN THE NEW DAY, Thursday, December 31, 2020.
GOOD DAY! This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters. -- Exodus 15:27

Yesterday the bitter waters of Marah, today the sweet waters of Elim. We do, indeed serve a turnaround God. Though He may seem to delay, yes He may seem to tarry too long for our liking, in his own time, He surely will come our way.
Dear Christian friend, have your debts piled up into a heap, as tall as Mount Everest? Have your bills risen to high heaven? And try as you may, your business just won’t take off? Not that you are someone who can be described as lazy. On the contrary, you are a born workaholic. You have poured your resources, your strength, your energy into your enterprise, yet your business just won’t pick up! Not that you failed to research the market before establishing your company. On the contrary, you took pains to do a thorough market research. Indeed, all the experts you contacted gave you a good chance of success. Undoubtedly you have done all that is humanly possible to ensure the success of your enterprise, yet still the business just won’t flourish. The bills, in the meantime, are piling up, piling up, piling up. The clock is ticking towards midnight, towards the dawn of the day when your creditors have threatened legal action to reclaim their money. You cannot imagine any way of escape. Still, I urge you not to give up! No matter the problems facing you, child of God, I urge you to look beyond the circumstances – soon, very soon, you will reach the sweet waters of Elim.
