Exhortation Aug #1

I can almost hear the distant drum sounding of God urshering His people back to their first love for Him. It will no longer be what I have to do to achieve this but it will be a continual prompting of the Spirit of truth in their hearts saying – this is the way, walk in it.

Once you obey that prompting, just like the step of obedience you took when you became born again, you will miraculously experience that fresh love of God rekindled in your life, just like the love you experienced when you were born again. It will be like a born again again experience, the gushing stream of the spirit of God bubbling out of your inner being, energising your mortal being, so that you will be walking and jumping, and praising God; the joy unspeakable, just like that lame man when he was healed at the Temple Gates ( Acts 3 : 8). Your critics and peers will be filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to you, just like that lame man (Acts 3:10) and they will have nothing more to debate but to say – it must be God.

We are going to see God using the despised, the lowly, the marginalised to boldly declare the oracles of God, so that none us of us can boast of our own calibre but instead boast in the Lord, for He says in (1 Cor 1:26-31) :

26Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29so that no one may boast before him. 30It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord."[d]

Arise, shine. Rejoice
