Thought For The Day
GOD WILL NEVER TURN HIS BACK ON YOU!- Because Jesus has taken your place at the cross, God's face is always smiling on you!

Hebrews 13:5
… He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

For six whole hours from 9am to 3pm, the Son of God was suspended between heaven and earth. And at the height of His suffering on the cross, He cried out in the deep darkness, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Matthew 27:45–46)

For the first time, Jesus addressed His Father as “God”. The Father had forsaken the Son. As Judge of the universe, God had to turn His back on His Son, who was carrying the filth of the world's sins, for His eyes are too pure to behold evil. (Habakkuk 1:13)

If the Father had not turned His back on His Son, He would have to turn His back on you today when you call out to Him in your hour of need. But because Jesus has taken your place, today, you take His place, and you have God's face smiling on you always!

Right now, God's face is smiling on you. His countenance is shining on you. I can stand before you and declare, “The Lord make His face shine upon you.” (Numbers 6:25–26) And it is all because Jesus has paid the price for God to never leave you nor forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5)

As Judge, God turned His back on His Son. But as Father, He cried. His heart was broken because Christ was never more pleasing to Him than when He was on the cross. Christ's suffering was a sweet-smelling aroma to the Father. (Ephesians 5:2)

Do you remember what Jesus said? “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.” (John 10:17) If you are a parent, you love each one of your children equally. But when one of them does something special for you out of love, it touches your heart, and you just want to run to him and hug him.

That was what happened at the cross, except that the Father could not embrace His Son. Instead, He had to turn His back on His Son because our sins had to be punished in His Son's body.

Beloved, when you cry out to the Father for help today, know that He hears you and will surely help you. Because of Jesus who hung on the cross for you today, God will never turn His back on you!

A sure way of being submitted to God

JOHN 1:1

Romans  10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

LUKE 18:1

Jesus I live ***singing ****

Pastor Chris

And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all (Acts 3:16).

 

Pastor Chris

Yesterday, we learnt about praying in the authority of the Name of Jesus. Another very important element in prayer is praying by the authority of the Word of God. This refers to the revelation and insight given to us by God through His Word. It means acting our faith in prayer, on the basis of the Word of God; if God’s Word covers it, then we’re audacious in faith to receive answers.

1 John 5:14-15 says "And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him." When we pray according to His will—according to His Word—we’re heard and we’re answered. This is a very important factor for us to learn about prayer. Some people, while praying, just talk, and don’t care whether or not what they’re saying is in line with the Word of God.

For example, if you said to me, "Give me such and such," you’ve made a request without being sure whether I’m going to give it to you. However, if I made a promise to give it to you, you’ll have faith to make that request. God already gave His Word, to show us everything that He’s given to us, everything that He’s made us, and everything that we can do in Christ Jesus.

Moreover, He has also revealed to us how to ask; how to pray and what our requests can cover. Therefore, you can have faith when you pray to God, and your faith grows as you learn the Word of God. The more of God’s Word you know, the more faith you’ll have. Romans 10:17 says "…faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."

Prayer 

Dear Father, I thank you for the power of your Word and its ability to cause the change that I desire to see as I pray according to your will. I declare that forever, your Word of truth guides me in the path of your divine and perfect will for my life. I walk in strength, health and victory today because I live by your Word, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

It wont be long till the return of the Master.Until then,we must continue and keep frustrating and paralyzing the works if the adversary,for its our God-given responsibility!

Refuse to let evil run riot around you, for you are God's man(or woman) to initiate and effect positive changes in your sphere of contact.

We are the reason evil has not overtuned the entire world; we are the force restraining satan from unleashing terror on the earth.

The moment you got born again,you stepped into the words of the Master: you became the salt of thr earth. Your presence in the earth is the reason the earth is still being  preserved from total decay.
