Better than good greetings, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
This post is the message of our Glory To Glory Word Hour on Thursday, at KDCG.
As you read, you’ll be changed from glory to glory, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
POWER OF PRAISE – 3
Acceptable Praise provokes the Voice of God, the Holy Spirit, Who does the following for the saints of God:
1. Breaks & scatters every hard thing that the powers of darkness want to use to introduce hardships against the saints – Psalm 29.5-6(KJV):
”The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breakeththe cedars of Lebanon”.
“He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn“.
At the sound of the Voice of God, hardships turn to ease – Matthew 11.28-30(KJV):
”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“.
Our Lord Jesus came to give ease where there is hardship & suffering!
2. Scatters every flames of fire that the powers of darkness have made against us for life to be unbearable – Psalm 29.7(KJV):
“The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire“.
Our Father, by His Voice, the Holy Spirit, turns off every heat against us & makes us to enjoy sweatless triumphs all through.
I’m sure you still remember the story of Shedrach, Meshach & Abednego in the fiery furnace?
Our Lord Jesus was already waiting for them in the fire of the fiery furnace that was heated seven times more than normal & He divided, scattered the flames, such that not even the hair on their bodies was consumed, (& that should have been the first thing to burn) & no smell of fire was on them!
You may use your wild life science to explain that the lions were over fed at the time of Daniel but what physics do you want to suggest about the fire of the fiery furnace?
Haven’t you known that our Father dwells in an unapproachable light, & that He’s a consuming fire?
1 Timothy 6.16; Malachi 3.6.
He’s the consuming fire Who consumes every other fire set against us, so that we’re not consumed & do not suffer!
Beloved, fire pass fire!
Sometime ago, while still a federal civil officer in our dear nation, Nigeria, a colleague of mine in another city complained so bitterly about his Commanding Officer, to the point that he desired we swap stations, when I told him that no one can make life unbearable for me, rather there’ll be productivity & happiness, without compromise, by God’s grace!
As the Lord would have it, not too long, his boss was transferred to my station, & beloved, you know what, we had the best of times, both officially & personally, even when I resigned, he refused to send my letter to the headquarters for about six times, making appeals to me to get back!
Another time, still as a federal officer, there was the case of mistaken identity over an issue that took a national & international dimension, in which I was involved.
While in detention at the state police headquarters with some of my colleagues in a cell with alleged hardened criminals, the favour of our heavenly Father was so much on me that those alleged hardened criminals gave me alone special treatment.
Even the police officers too gave me preferential treatment by our heavenly Father’s favours, as they’ll not allow me to spend the night in the cell but with them at the counter.
On one of such nights, one of their superior officers came around & on demand, I was introduced as an officer from another department to which I promptly corrected.
Can you imagine that!
Just keep celebrating your heavenly Father & see how He turns every issue around in your favour, while Satan & his agents are biting their fingers, you’ll be just be laughing & enjoying promotions with blessings!
Or haven’t you read Psalm 128.1-2, about yourself?
”(A Song of degrees.) Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways”.
”For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee“.
It’s time to hear His Voice, so that you’ll be happy & it’ll be well with you & be settled with heavenly difference!
Your mockers will either bow to celebrate you from now or they go into hiding at your appearance, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
Keep enjoying your better than good life, in Jesus’
most colourful name!
JESUS IS LORD!
