My Excellent God

Oh Lord my excellent God how wonderful you are to me. How kind and gracious thou art, that it pleased you to restore my joy and remain my focus upon the enjoyment of your Excellency. For before I had been a man lost and walking in drought; I had bought about my own misery but I waited for your renewed mercy, for my soul was weak and my heart was numb. I was a beast but yet I held on tightly knowing that my Saviour will not fail me. And here today, with a delighted heart and a rejoicing soul, I lift my voice to you in the joy of your grace, knowing now that every tear and sin is wiped away. Oh, I rejoice that my Lord my Adonai is forever alive and forever will I cling to you. Oh that I may see your bodily presence and wrestle with you as a man wrestles with his friend; that I may feel the wetness of your sweat and feel the healing touch of your skin. You are my hope, you are a most worthy God, you are the delight of my eyes, the apex of my satisfaction. Glory be to your name, everlasting glory be to your name for you are not a God afar off but near; near to my beating heart which pounds for the weight of your glory. 


Oh my earthly friends, in your trial and sufferings, in your longings and misery, I beseech you to wait upon the Lord; to wait for him for He will come to you and restore you. His restoration will come upon you as that of the coming of a thief in the night; suddenly it will appear and take away your sorrows and guilt. He will suddenly fill you with joy inexpressible and full of glory. Is your soul sad then let it be sad and conjure not for yourself false excitements but wait for the appearing of your saviour who bestows upon the soul of His saints lasting and true enjoyments. Do not be quick to fill your soul upon the broken cisterns of this world to satisfy your thirst for pleasure but wait and come to the fountain of God where the water flows and satisfies your innermost being. Did God not say that at His right hand there is pleasure forever more? Then why oh brother do you seek pleasure elsewhere? for who sits at the right hand of God? It is Jesus, and in him is infinite pleasure and delight forevermore.


Oh Lord my excellent God, How wonderful you are to me!

When God turns a deaf ear on prayers

Does God always hear people’s prayers, or do some pray in vain thinking that God hears them, when in reality He chooses to turn a deaf hear to their cries? Some may perhaps have a notion that all prayers are worthy, and God being who He is is by nature willing to listen and hear their prayers delightfully. They entertain the notion that it is their birth right for God to listen to their prayers and answer them accordingly. Also, there are some who come before the presence of the Lord with severe doubts, defeated by the devils whisper that they are such an unworthy soul that for them to lift up their cries to the Lord is an abomination. They are mute by their own wickedness, depressed and thus fail to pray.

What does the scripture say about God turning a deaf hear to prayers? It is to be said that God is sovereign and can choose to answer any prayer as He sees fit. He is altogether happy and never backed into a corner, God always does whatever He pleases for He is free to do as He wills…

What does it mean to live a godly life?

If you ever asked yourself the question, what does it mean to live a godly life? and if your not exactly sure what living a godly life involves, this extract taking from Charles Seet book 'A Christian in a non-Christian world' provides ample guidance on just what to do.

Now it is worth asking the question then, 'What does it mean to live godly?' It does not mean that we are just to confine ourselves within a set of rules and regulations. Some people reduce godly living to a list of 'do’s and don'ts.' But the meaning of godly living goes far deeper than that.

Godly living means living in the manner that God wants us to live. It means having the same feelings, attitudes and heart's desires that God has. It means that we love the things that God loves, care for the things that God cares for, and dislike those things which He dislikes. And since God loves righteousness, a godly person also loves righteousness. Since God hates sin, a godly person also hates …

Women of the Bible: Adah and Zillah

The Sin of Adam and Eve resulted in the fall of humanity. Every generation after them became wicked and that is why scripture affirms, ‘that there is no one righteous, no, not even one.’ Mankind became enslave to the passions of its flesh, its desires became its ruler and men followed the natural dictates of their hearts; and were it not for Sovereign grace, the race of men would now only be read of by angels in the library of extinct creatures. Adam and Eve witnessed the consequences of their sin in the death of their beloved son, Abel, by the hands of Cain who murdered his brother in anger and was thus sent away from the presence of God. My dear sisters, sin is not only sin when it is found in its extremes, sin is also sin in its subtlety and vanity. Sin is sin when one's affection is set on another and not on God, when one lives to please a thing or a being which is not God; this is also sin.
This becomes especially evident in the lives of Adah and Zillah the wives of Lamech. Th…
