THANKSGIVING: “Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth” – Psalm 124.6
REPENTANCE: Repent for all sins of you and your family, the Church and Nigeria; pray for grace to do better.
FOCUS OF FOR THE WEEK: Thanks to God for ourselves, the church & nation as we start a new Nigeria year
“…but thou shalt call thy walls salvation, and thy gates Praise” – Isaiah 60.18
- Psm 100:4 “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless His name” Let’s enter His gates this new year of Nigeria, not with requests or any lamentations but with praise….praise….& thanksgiving. We have so much to thank God for as individuals, families, the Church and nation. Count the blessings and His mercies and thank God.
- Psm 124:1,6 “If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us; then they would have swallowed us up quick… Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth” Really thank God that all plans of evil ones against God’s people have been continually frustrated
- Psm 124:7 “Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped” By faith in the words of diverse witnesses and prophetic voices, thank God that He has broken the siege, turned the tide and birthed a new nation. Thank God by faith that like a new dawn is usually dark but soon brightens up, Nigeria shall swiftly brighten up
- Psm 124:8 “Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth” Thank God that He has been our mighty help, our refuge and shield, “our shelter from the stormy blast”, though we deserved nothing
- Zec_12:10 “And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications” Thank God mightily that, to ensure that Nigeria and the Church are preserved, He has stirred so, so many in and outside the country to make supplications, to intercede
- Luk 15:20 “And he…came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.” Let us thank God that while we are still “a great way off” as individuals and as a nation, God has mercifully embraced us and is set to restore us.
- Psm 126:1-3 “When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream….then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them. The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.” Thank God for all He has done already; and by faith for a mighty turnaround; for all He shall do for you, your family, for the Church and the nation in this new Nigeria year
