Topic: For His Own Pleasure [Saturday 2, December 2017]

Memorise: “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” – Revelation 4:11


Read: 1 Peter 2:9-11

9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

Bible In One Year: 1 Corinthians 10-13. Hymn: Sing Hymn 7: Holy Holy Holy, Lord God Almighty


MESSAGE:

Bible records show that God is not passive about His creations; He is dynamically involved in everything that happens in the universe. His interest and involvement can be seen in the history of Israel and in the ministry of Jesus Christ. In the present age, God’s activities and operations can be seen in the lives of believers and the Church.

Revelation 4:11 further states that all things were for God’s pleasure. God is very much in the business of directing human affairs, and your choice in any matter can never produce a better result than His will. Whenever God chooses somebody for an assignment, it does not necessarily mean the fellow is the most qualified. In fact, God often chooses the least qualified so that flesh will not rob Him of His glory. Because the Lord has chosen you to be an heir to His heritage, He will cause all things to work in your favour to the fulfilment of your destiny in Jesus’ Name.

Prayer Point : Father, please let Your mercy and favour locate me today in Jesus’ Name.

Sing Hymn 7: Holy Holy Holy, Lord God Almighty

1. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee;
Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty,
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

2. Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
Who wert and art and evermore shalt be.

3. Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
Though the eye made blind by sin thy glory may not see,
Only thou art holy; there is none beside thee,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

4. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name, in earth and sky and sea;
Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty,
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!
