You Are Good, Lord!!

Can one really get tired of saying how good our God is? Can you?  Revelations 4:8-11 reads :-

8 Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying:

“‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,’ who was, and is, and is to come.”

9 Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

11 “You are worthy, our Lord and God,to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”

What stands out for me in the above scriptures is that day and night, the Lord God Almighty receives praise and worship from the living creatures. I am in a season in my life that is really catapulting me to take things easy, if I may be so kind with words to myself.  I am learning to surrender my big plans and align myself to God’s will for me. The beauty I have realized so far is that things always turn out better than I had ever imagined. Why? Because I was created by the one who has all the power, our Lord and God.

When are those times that one cannot give praise to God? In my case, I have observed it is when am anxious and filled with worry, or doubtful and even when am guilty of sin in my life. It becomes a challenge to find the words. The above scripture points out areas that we can reflect on as the living creatures on earth.

  1. That God is the same yesterday, today and forever. As simple as these words seem, but how powerful they can be in our daily lives. If only our hearts and minds can perceive the details of the stories we read in the Bible and understand that He is the same God we serve today, then anxiety would not overwhelm some of us.
  2. That God is Holy. This was spoken thrice as the first words by the living creatures  to show emphasis and significance of this element in our worship. For me, I have sort of come to a place where I appreciate the blood of Jesus. Am sinful at birth and so the sacrifice on Calvary presents the way to my salvation and a platform to fully praise the King of Kings and Lord of Lords who is holy.
  3. Lastly, that we have been created to worship Jehovah, our God. The living creatures and the twenty four elders have no other work but to praise God. They use their beings to speak and fall down in worship day and night. They put aside their crowns(sign of authority/prestige) because there is one who is above all authority. He is the one who gives the authority to all beings.

How easy is this to accomplish and acknowledge? From experience, not so much. John Courson once said that as one gets older, the more they realize how sinful they are. It just dawns on you how imperfect you are and you change your perspective on life and other people’s faults. And our Creator knows that all too well and went ahead in thinking in providing the way to redemption. And that is His Son Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior!!! Amen!

One day, we will meet this God. We will meet His Son. We  will also meet all the other heavenly beings that have been God’s servants for years and years in accomplishing His plans. It has been a desire to see an angel while I am here on earth, but again may God’s will prevail. One thing is for sure is that we will meet our Creator and my desire is not just for a meet up but a spending of eternity with Him doing what I was created to do. To give Him glory, honor, and thanks as the one who sits on the heavenly throne!! Hallelujah!!

As I write this, I recall the lyrics of the song, No Other God by Dr. Tumi:”We love you Lord, we adore you Lord. We lay our lives before your throne”.

He continues to sing: “None besides you Lord, no other God but you, we lay our lives before your throne. There is none besides you Lord, no other God but you!”

Yes, truly there is no other God than you Jehovah! Receive all the praise for who you are, the Omnipresent, Omniscient,Omnipotent God!! You deserve it all!! Won’t you forgive us for the times we have fallen short, because truly we have. Let your blood, Jesus, wash us clean and may the filling of the Holy Spirit ever be our portion. Thank you Lord! May you be glorified and magnified in and through our human lives. For it is in your name Jesus Christ, that we pray and believe. Amen!!!

May God richly bless and keep you for eternity! See you next week Friday!!

Amazing Love!!

Hello! Hello!🙋

Anyone in the Christmas mood!!!!!!!!!🤣🤗😄 Yes, the year 2018 is soon coming to an end. Mmmmmhh! I just can’t believe all the good things the Lord has done for me this year. Definitely I had not imagined it ending like this. Yes, my heart was expectant of the Mighty hand of God doing miracles but to be honest things have turned out above what I could ask, think or imagine! I bless you Lord. You are truly good all the time. My beloved reader, do not get me wrong, there are things that have not matured but you know what, am grateful to the Lord this far! He has been Ebenezer. I am alive and breathing and still expectant of more from my Heavenly Father! And very likely, God does expect much from me!

Travis Greene’s show that I attended on 30th November in Nairobi was superb. As I had written, my heart was expectant of hearing God’s voice and Jehovah did not disappoint. One major thing that I left the concert with, which I received pretty much in the first worship songs is that He is concerned about the inner me. This did not even happen when Travis was singing but during the first local musicians as they did the ‘opening acts’ if you may. By the time, Travis came on stage, my heart had already been ministered to, my spirit lifted and all that remained was just to thank and praise the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!! Hallelujah!!🙏🙌 Just a small clip below of the praise fest!🤗

Yes, I went to this concert with quite a low spirit and really needed that ‘surgical operation’ of the heart from the one who formed me. I had doubts and questions about my future. I really wanted to know if my current decisions pleased Him and is there something I needed to deal with to better position me for impact as I fulfill my purpose on earth and for His Kingdom. Was there something I needed to correct? Was there something I needed to work on? Yes, I had questions. And I got the answer. That Jesus loves me. He knows my life and experiences and knows very well what makes me tick and what puts me off. My Good Shepherd has seen my highs and lows in life and knows way I am who I am right now, in my thinking, my habits, my likes and dislikes.

It felt truly assuring to know that. Here I was looking for all these answers and all I needed was just one. That I was loved beyond measure. I do not think I can describe it with words how much that affirmation put me back where I needed to be. That he is not so mad at me at my failures but that his grace is sufficient for me in my weakness. That he has placed me in a position in life that he knows very well I can handle. My recent favorite verse that I have been quoting so often lately is Psalms 29:11 which says:-
The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.

The other is John 14:27 which says ;-
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

What I felt was love! Love from a being I have not seen but have faith that he exists. That one day I will get to see him and spend eternity with him. Love is what I felt! Love is what I was assured. That God’s love endures forever!

Let us pray. Heavenly Father, we come before you this moment. Grateful. Grateful that you loved us, still love us and will always love us. Receive all the praise and honor for who you are Lord. You are the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the Creator of all the universe. There is no one like you. All other gods are just works of men. We acknowledge you as our Savior and so Lord, we come to you in humility, asking for the cleansing of our sins and a refilling of your spirit in us. Remove the blindness from our eyes to see things the way you see them and may our ears always hear your voice guiding us. Help us discern and embrace your love in all areas of our lives and help us show the same to those around us. Thank you Lord Jesus for this far. You have truly been Ebenezer. And the people of God say Amen and Amen and Amen!

God richly bless you and keep you for eternity to spend with him. Amen! See you next week Friday!😇😆
