“This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” – Psalm 118:24
I give God all the glory for giving me life to attain today Friday September 27 as the opportunity of my becoming 65 year-old. Halleluyah!
I glorify the Most High God for all the experiences of the past years that didn’t allow me to die before His appointed time unto me.
By the grace of God, I believe that this the amazing beginning of divine glory, to really make me the ‘hero’ I was named by the teacher when I was 9 year-old attending in class 4 of St. Luke’s Primary School, Ikere-Ekiti. When I entered secondary Christ’s School, Ado-Ekiti, my mates and friends were really calling me ‘hero’ and also same at the then University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University), Ile-Ife.
All things might have been so hard and difficult. But with the power of the everlasting God, He is the one who can do all what no man can do.
According to Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
No matter the terrible things that Satan is doing now, not only in my nation Nigeria, but across the world, the power of the Lord is choosing to be the most excellence, with His power to do all things to solve all problems.
It is settled in Proverbs 9:11 that “For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.”
As I’m rejoicing in the Lord as He has the power to do all things, what is down will be lifted to higher ground, contrary to those still refusing Him but are in the hand of the devil that is steeling, killing and destroying (John 10:10a).
No matter the position of those who are still contrary to the will of God who is the one who created heaven and earth, as they might be thinking they are now enjoying in big position, it is essentially settled that they will die before their time and go to hell sorrowing forever in the midst of the already sentenced devil.
But as you are still alive like me, believe that it’s the God who created you that is still keeping you alive not to die before your time. Therefore, abide more in the right hand of Jesus Christ who can take you to heaven.
The word of God which cannot change says in Jeremiah 20:11 that “But the Lord is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten.”
So, what we must also believe is written in James 1:17 that “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
Real everlasting happiness and joy like Jesus Christ who is the same forever who has not changed, is the issue to end well with eternal life of divine goodness.
According to Zephaniah 3:17, “The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.”
Please beloved, totally surrender your life unto the one who created you and still keeping you alive because He still have a good purpose for you. And as you believe in Him, trust in Him, honour Him and have more faith in Him as He can do all things to make you great spiritually and mentally. And then, be sure you’ll end well as all your enemies will be put to total shame.
Therefore, as you’ll no longer be steeling in any corruption or kidnapping, abundant goodness of God will make you to bless your country and even the entire world. He will make you stronger as you’ll be lifted to glory.
So, as in Psalm 37:4-5, “Delight thyself also in the Lord ; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord ; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.”
As you believe in His word, may God grant you His grace and mercy to move forward to fulfill your destiny upon your life in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen!
