Remember My Goodness

I would have you to remember My goodness, for I have watched over you even when you felt alone, even when you felt desperate, even when you felt forgotten, even when you have been without. I have never left you. I have never forsaken you. I have been with you all of these days from the very first day you gave yourself to Me, and I have watched over you. It is true that I have allowed you to walk through some hard circumstances, but do you not know that they are making you stronger? And, do you not know that they are giving you the right to exercise the authority that I have given you? And, do you not know that they cause you to cling to Me? Your destiny is already written and it is one of victory, not failure. So, walk with Me in trust and love. Victory is assured. Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Dare to believe you can be what I said you can be, says the Lord.

POWER OF PRAISE AND PRAYER – 23 May 2018 – by Jingo Christopher

Lord, I want more than anything to have a close walk with You. Help me to not forfeit that wonderful intimacy by being drawn toward the distractions of this world. Enable me to hear Your voice calling me so that I will answer without even a moments delay. Help me to never hide from You for any reason. I don’t want anything to separate me from all You have for my life. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Genesis 3:8-9 – And they heard the voice of the Lord God
walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.
9 And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where are You?

POWER OF PRAISE AND PRAYER – 22 May 2018 – by Jingo Christopher

Lord, thank You for the breath of life You have given me. I pray You will breathe new life into me today. Just as You spoke and brought about life in Your magnificent world, help me to speak words that bring life into my own small world as well. How grateful I am to be closely connected to You in every way. Thank You that You created me for Your purpose. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Genesis 2:7 – And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the
ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

ROBERT MURRAY McCHEYNE

On this day May 21, 1813 Robert Murray McCheyne was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. He taught himself the Greek alphabet at the age of four. He later distinguished himself as a student of Edinburgh University. McCheyne became pastor of St. Peter’s Church of Dundee, Scotland at the age of 23. A famous revival in Dundee began in his church under the ministry of William C. Burns. It continued under McCheyne. The whole city was moved. No less than 39 prayer meetings were held weekly in connection with this church, of which five were carried on wholly by children. McCheyne died of typhus March 25, 1843. He is buried in the churchyard of St. Peter’s. His monument contains the words: “…who died in the thirtieth year of his age and the seventh of his ministry, walking closely with God, an example of the believers in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity, he ceased not day and night to labor and watch for souls, and was honored by his Lord to draw many wanderers out of darkness and to the path of life.”

On Nov 18, 1834 a poem penned by Robert Murray Mccheyne

Jehovah Tsidkenu
“The Lord Our Righteousness”

I once was a stranger to grace and to God,
I knew not my danger, and felt not my load;
Though friends spoke in rapture of Christ on the tree,
Jehovah Tsidkenu was nothing to me.

I oft read with pleasure, to soothe or engage,
Isaiah’s wild measure and John’s simple page;
But e’en when they pictured the blood-sprinkled tree
Jehovah Tsidkenu seemed nothing to me.

Like tears from the daughters of Zion that roll,
I wept when the waters went over His soul;
Yet thought not that my sins had nailed to the tree
Jehovah Tsidkenu- ’twas nothing to me.

When free grace awoke me, by light from on high,
Then legal fears shook me, I trembled to die;
No refuge, no safety in self could I see-
Jehovah Tsidkenu my Savior must be.

My terrors all vanished before the sweet name;
My guilty fears banished, with boldness I came
To drink at the fountain, life-giving and free-
Jehovah Tsidkenu is all things to me.

Jehovah Tsidkenu! my treasure and boast,”
Jehovah Tsidkenu! I ne’er can be lost;
In thee I shall conquer by flood and by field-
My cable, my anchor, my breastplate and shield!

Even treading the valley, the shadow of death,
This “watchword” shall rally my faltering breath;
For while from life’s journey my God sets me free,
Jehovah Tsidkenu my death-song shall be.

POWER OF PRAISE AND PRAYER – 21 May 2018 – by Jingo Christopher

Lord, I love experiencing the pleasure of Your company because I find joy in Your presence. Come fill me afresh with Your Holy Spirit right now so that Your joy rises up in my heart and crowds out all sadness and oppression. I know that joy does not depend on circumstances; it depends on my openness to allowing Your Spirit to have control in my life. Lord, I surrender my life to You today. Make me to be known as a person of great joy. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Psalm 16:11 – You will show me the path of life: in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Handbook to Happiness – by Dr. Charles R. Solomon
Book Review
Handbook to Happiness counsels hurting people by teaching them to exchange their life for Christ’s. Instead of “trying to live the Christian life,” which still centers on our own efforts, we need to allow Christ to live His life in us. This removes all reliance on human effort and frees us to become totally Christ centered.
