2017 - SATURDAY 19 AUGUST HIS GOOD NAME Psalm 52:9 I will praise You forever, Because You have done it; And in the presence of Your saints I will wait on Your name, for it is good. 1. HIS GOOD NAME ENDURES FOREVER He never changes - so His name never changes. He is always - the Lord God Almighty. 2. HIS GOOD NAME ENGENDERS PRAISE When His name is good to you - your lips cannot stop from praising Him. 3. HIS GOOD NAME IS YOUR GUARANTEE - HE HAS DONE IT. His name is His guarantee - that the work is finished and completed. In His name we have the victory. 4. HIS GOOD NAME IS THE GATHERING POINT FOR THE SAINTS When His name is good to you - you have a desire to meet together with those who are called by His name. 5. HIS GOOD NAME IS WORTH CALLING UPON. His name is higher than any other. When we call upon the name of the Lord - we engage with the glorious King over all things - and He is moved to honour His name. Acts 3:16 And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong,
Wet and rainy in Stockholm - now that is the Europe I know and love
PROVERBS 3:25 - Keep the faith - stay strong - pray for peace
2017 - FRIDAY 18 AUGUST APPREHENDED FOR GOD Philippians 3;13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. There are two APPREHENSIONS that must happen in the christian life. We are saved and called. (2 Timothy 1:9) 1. SAVED - FROM SIN We are apprehended by God. We are bought with a high price. Jesus gave his life to purchase us. We are now love slaves to God. Our life is not our own. We have been apprehended. 2. SAVED - FROM SELF We are then called to serve our King - and so we must now pursue and apprehend our calling. This is the work of the Holy Spirit within our lives. His power enables us to apprehend our heavenly calling. You are not called to scratch around in the dust of creation - but rather to engage in the work of your Heavenly Father. You are called to build His Kingdom here on earth. Paul understood apprehension. He knew there was more to be achieved and greater things to be done. He knew he had not arrived - and continued to pursue his calling - to be pleasing to his King. Keep apprehending your heavenly calling - and all these other things - shall be added to you. Philippians 3:12 but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.
