I am greatful for life, to be counted amongst the living, what about you? are you grateful for the gift of life? It is just by the mercies of God Almighty, so many wished to see this day but they are no more, you and i are alive this day. in spite of our enemies. it has please the Lord to keep us alive. dont you think you should be grateful for that singular reason?
Or are you saying to yourselves why should i be grateful? when there are issues surrounding me, or because of the challenges you are faced with? or that problem? The lord is saying to you this morning, do not feel discourage, forgotten, abandoned, nor dejected
Isaiah 49:15-16 Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget, Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me
The Lord is saying to you this morning that He cares for you. He sees and He knows, but you see, if you are not in Jesus Christ, He becomes helpless in some matters of yours,
Isaiah 59:1-2, Behold, the Lord‘s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:
But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
People of God, sin is the major cause of the problem we are been faced with today, even in the world at large.
this is why He said abide in Me and I in you.
John 15:4-5, Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
For without Jesus Christ we cannot do anything of our own. we must abide in Him, by drawing near to him so He can draw near unto us james 4:8.
We must surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. and as we do so our lives will never remain the same.
