TRUST IN THE NAME OF THE LORD
Trust in the name of the Lord. Let your confidence be in Him alone. He is a faithful friend and ever present help in times of trouble. He loves and cares for you, He will never let you down.
When David went to war, he put His trust in Almighty God. Human shields, the strength of the chariot and horse meant nothing to David. He knew that the natural components to waging war (well designed chariots, coupled with the best breed of horses) would do nothing for Him, if God was not by His side. The trust of human effort, is like trusting in chariots and horses. When God removed His hand from David during battle, he lost.
Where is your trust this morning?
TRUST IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.
TRUST HIM WITH ALL YOUR HEART.
Take time to really meditate on these words,and it will strengthen and encourage you.
Have a blessed weekend and a glorious start to the new month of October.
Believe in the SON
The New World Order (NWO) teaches that all roads lead to Heaven. It teaches that any faith or religion can give you direct access to the FATHER. The Bible clearly teaches us that no one can approach Almighty God directly because of sin. The human race is in a sinful condition and there is no form of self-effort, adherence to a set of rules, good works or religion that can make a person righteous before God. God is Holy. The human race needed a mediator to bring reconciliation, to stand in the gap between God and man. Being good, self-efforts, self – works or any form of self-righteousness cannot and can never please God.
Almighty God took pity on mankind in its sinful condition. He loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son as a living sacrifice for sin. That whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life (John 3:16). The Spirit of God came to earth to save mankind through our Lord Jesus Christ. He is One with God, He is the eternal Son of God. Without Him we can not see God. He is the righteousness of God, it is only through Him that a person can be right with God.
There is something innate within the human heart that knows in needs to get right with God. This manifests itself in all forms of self-works, self-efforts and the keeping to sets or forms of rules. None of these things can please God, no matter how hard we humanly try. This is why we need a Saviour, one who has already paid the price for our sin with His own life.
Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life and it is only through Him that we have salvation. There is no other way.

The crucifixion of Jesus Christ on the Cross did not stop people from following and believing in Him. Rather, it did the opposite, it drew people to Him. He was nailed to the Cross and lifted up. This caused all kinds of people, not absolutely everyone, but a people from every nation, tribe and language, to be drawn to Him. He is, and forever will be, the desire of all nations.
To die on a cross was the greatest form of humiliation. They made a spectacle out of Him, but He humbled himself, in obedience. He was even willing to die on a cross (Phil.2:8). He died like a common criminal, He was lifted up on a cross into the air. In His indignity and shame, He is highly exalted and honoured and is the name above every other name (Phil. 2:9).
His unfailing promise:
Today, a great number of people from the nations of the earth are the followers of Jesus Christ. They have been saved, by grace, through faith in Jesus Christ. Till this day, His fame and name still draws crowds of people. He is the centre of attraction in all the earth. People still hear about Him and believe in Him every day. His promise is established forever (Revelation 11:15).

What would Jesus do?
Christian Love and Charity
To love your enemies may seem one of the hardest things to do. As a child of God this is just one of the ways you can manifest God’s love to a blind and unbelieving world. The Bible encourages you to love your enemies. God promises to give you the grace to do it.
Christian charity is unselfish. It does not think about what it is going to get in return. Jesus was long-suffering, meek and lowly of heart. He showed mercy to a world that treated Him so badly. If the Lord treated the world the way the world treated Him, we would all be doomed. Jesus Christ went out of His way to become a friend of sinners.
True giving is when a person gives, expecting nothing in return. Almighty God shows mercy to all the peoples of the earth. The thankful, the ungrateful and evil all benefit from His benevolence. The sun never ceases to shine. Year by year, seed times turn into harvest time. The seasons of the earth are constant in their change: Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer.
Though the world does not acknowledge or thank Him for His Mercy He has promised that His mercies endure for ever (Psalm 136:1).They are new every morning (Lamentations 3: 22 – 23). Great is His faithfulness. He never grows weary or tired of doing good (Isaiah 40:28, Psalm 121:3) and neither should every believer in Jesus Christ. Ungrateful, thankful and evil men should not stop us from doing good.

Faith in Jesus Christ
There is a place of justice. Have you ever thought about the day you will stand before the throne of Justice? The Galatians thought they could attain their own righteousness through the works of the Law.
Christ is the fulfilment of the Law. He is the seed of Abraham, and it is through Christ that the promises and blessings of God are received. All you that believe, whether native Jew or Gentile are the children of God, by adoption, through faith in Jesus Christ (John 1:12).

Source: Rejoicing over God’s Word
What a privilege to rejoice over God’s Word this morning! The Word of God reigns supreme over every form of writing, arts and wisdom of men. God’s Word nourishes the soul. David walked in the fear of the Lord. It was reverential fear of the Lord that made him stand in awe of Him. He embraced God’s Word with great JOY.
David compared His JOY over God’s WORD to one who had fought a long drawn battle and won the VICTORY. He likened it to one enjoying the treasures of victory. The challenges of daily living should make God’s Word even more precious to us. The Word of God is greater than the greatest treasure a person could ever find.
What or who is it that seeks to compete with God’s Name and HIS Word? Christ has engaged in battle for us and given us what it more precious than diamonds, gold or sliver…We can enjoy God’s Word because the battle has been already won for us. However, we must contend for TRUTH and fully understand it. Psalm 119:162 says:
“You have exalted above all things your name and your word.”(ESV)
Let nothing stand between you and God’s Word today. The enemy desires to corrupt your soul, nevertheless, you must rejoice in the full knowledge and understanding that the battle has already been won. Rejoice and again I say, Rejoice!

There is a cry in the heart that can only be filled by the Spirit of God.
The Apostle Paul confirmed that the Gentiles were also the “sons of God.” The Spirit of God had been sent into their hearts. The Israelites were the first people to be called the first born in Exodus 4:6. So many of them believed and received the the Spirit (Ezekiel 36:27). The full outpouring and outflow of the Holy Spirit did not come until Christ was glorified (John 7:39; 16;7).
Just like on the day of Pentecost, the Spirit moves today, it has not departed. The Spirit manifests itself in the “sons of God.” They have a variety of spiritual gifts. In boldness they cry ABBA FATHER. A people who were once strangers to God, have been adopted into a family and are now privileged to be called The Sons of God, They have been redeemed by Christ and call Him FATHER FATHER.

The SPIRIT bears witness with the believers spirit.
The Spirit Himself bears witness with the believers Spirit the he or she is a member of God’s family. Through God’s Word the Spirit confirms the TRUTH.
“Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” Rom.8:17
Heirs in God’s Kingdom have mind boggling privileges. They are no longer slaves, but heirs.
The sons and daughters of the Living God have a unique and special relationship with the FATHER. All that belongs to Almighty God belongs to His sons and daughters. They are heirs of all that belongs the Father, joint -heirs with Christ.
The children of God are glorified with Christ. While the believer enjoys freedom on earth, they will also go though many afflictions while the soul remains in the human body, it is flesh. However, there is a great expectation of the glory which is to come.
