The House of the High Priest

Nehemiah 3:21 After him repaired Meremoth the son of Urijah the son of Koz another piece, from the door of the house of Eliashib even to the end of the house of Eliashib.

Heb_4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Eliashib is the high priest and his house is mentioned in this text. It seems pieces of this house are in disrepair. Christ is our high priest …and He dwells not in temples made with hands …His place of dwelling is our heart. So what is the shape of your heart … how is the door to your heart, what kinds of thoughts do you admit into your heart? What can be said of the integrity and uprightness of your heart ? … is Christ dwelling in your heart or is your heart full of ambitions and lusts.? Check your heart and ask God to help you with sincerity. Like David you must pray for God to reveal the state of your heart so you may make needed adjustments.

Psa 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Verses for further meditation
Job 13:4 ; Deut. 8:17-18

Thoughts for Business and the work place
Be convinced on the value your business idea is contributing before selling it to others.

Suggestions for Prayer
O Lord, search my heart O Lord and help me on the way everlasting. Amen

 

As Nehemiah’s wall was built,  so will we see a reconstruction in all that may appear in distress and in waste.  Nehemiah trusted and feared God, putting his faith in the Almighty whose strength is limitless to exceed all our expectations. Look out daily for Nehemiah’s Wall in 2015 and do invite friends to subscribe to the free email or social media posts.

I am praying someone with a burden to be used by God in building will receive a fresh vision and get the job done.

Finally Blessed

Gen 48:5 And now thy two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born unto thee in the land of Egypt before I came unto thee into Egypt, are mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine. 6 And thy issue, which thou begettest after them, shall be thine, and shall be called after the name of their brethren in their inheritance.

Our identity relates to our level. Who we are matters. Whose we are matters even more. Ephraim and Manasseh were grandchildren but have been promoted to receive the direct blessing of children. All the other children that come after Ephraim and Manasseh will be blessed by Joseph and not by Israel.

Who are you? You are blessed. You are the child of God. You have been blessed directly in Christ Jesus. You do not belong to a pastor or to a prophet. The blessings of our earthly and spiritual parents count but the blessings of God count far more.

We are already a blessed people. We have received the blessings as revealed in the word of God. We cannot obtain any other superior blessing and we do well to stop chasing and seeking after blessings that the word of God already says we possess.

Heb 11:21 By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.
Jas 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
Jas 1:25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
Rev 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
Rev 14:13 And I heard a voice from Heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.
Rev 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. Rev 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
Rev 22:7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Thank God – I am blessed in Christ Jesus.

Song.

I’m so glad I belong to Jesus. I belong to Jesus. I belong to my God 2ce (Chorus)

Prayer: Lord , may it never be said that my life and indeed anything in me – rejected your everlasting blessings.

The Songs of Joseph is an integration of encouragement scriptural devotions, prayers and a compendium of songs of mercy, salvation, new beginnings and victory. We can expect as we trust and obey that our end will indeed be ultimately glorious because God works His marvellous agenda. Be blessed as you read and sing along, daily. Edited by Bolade Apampa
