Song of Salvation

Zec 10:6 And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy upon them: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am the LORD their God, and will hear them.

God does not cast away the entire house of Joseph. God is committed to rescue His remnant. He pledges through the prophet to bring back the house of Joseph … to have mercy upon them such that they be as those that were never cast off. God says this will happen again because the Lord strong and mighty is their God. And God hears our cries. God will not permit His own to be completely downcast. God rescues and God saves.

God saves because He is God and as He has promised there is none to stop Him. When God decides to have mercy – who can question or dispute His mercy. The Lord Jesus is sent as our salvation – our hope, our reward . Where Joseph is a shadow, Jesus Christ is the perfection of God’s mercy to His children.

This text foretells a time when both Judah and Israel will be strengthened, and rescued from a calamity. Jesus saves. Jesus strengthens. You will not be cast away. There is a mercy the world has never seen before. There is a strength that is beyond all comparison. The prophet Zechariah declares a salvation, that the reader can receive in Christ Jesus. The salvation of God has come. Jesus will hear and answer you. Today. T, the beauty of God’s salvation is such that when it comes it will be as though you had never been cast off before. Rejoice for today your God will hear and answer you. No more will you be cast off. No more will you be desolate. Receive Christ and His salvation afresh.

Song.

My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine;
For Thee all the follies of sin I resign.
My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou;
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now.

I love Thee because Thou has first loved me,
And purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree.
I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow;
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now.

I’ll love Thee in life, I will love Thee in death,
And praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath;
And say when the death dew lies cold on my brow,
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now.

In mansions of glory and endless delight,
I’ll ever adore Thee in Heaven so bright;
I’ll sing with the glittering crown on my brow;
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now

Prayer: Lord I surrender my life to you. Hear me and bring me back to you. Amen

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

Thy Salvation – O Lord

Gen 49:18 I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD

Jacob is interrupted in this most important duty by his thoughts and he voices these thoughts – so important that they are recorded. I believe these are perhaps the most important messages that summarize an entire life. In the end Jacob could say “I have waited”. Jacob was a deeply spiritual man – in spite of many issues and weak spots … in the end he spoke for God like no one ever could in his generation. He was God’s voice and priest on the earth. He did not lose any of his children – God kept them in His own special way ..preserved them from death by hunger in a famine and brought him to a wealthy place.

Jacob started with many schemes and plans … many ambitious thoughts and agenda …but he ended well. He saw the salvation of the Lord in everything that happened to him. It was all the salvation of the Lord and he had learnt to wait to see it. For Jacob had discovered that when God is saving us we cannot always know it … often we think he is destroying or hurting us. Everything … from the barrenness of Rachel, the favoritism that Joseph enjoyed leading to his unfortunate adventures … imprisonment in Egypt of his son. It was all God saving the chosen tribe from starvation and preserving them in Egypt until the foretold time of the Exodus. In the end …the waiting of Jacob was rewarded. He saw that salvation and it all made sense to him. He sees all his children gathered around him – perhaps for the last time …He gasps … I have waited for thy salvation. He cannot believe his eyes and the evidence of the fruit of waiting on God.

There are many promised sources of salvation … the salvation of God works differently in ways that are not our ways. Wait for it – It is already at work in your life , only you do not see it …you cannot see it. You must wait on the Lord. Soon … you will rejoice to discover that none of your children are lost.

Song.

Only Jesus can save my brother Only Jesus can save Hallelujah
There is no other way my brother Only Jesus can save Hallelujah
Money cannot save my brother Only Jesus can save Hallelujah
Friends cannot save my brother Only Joseph can save Hallelujah

Prayer : Father, Teach me to wait for thy salvation and your salvation alone. Amen

Prayer : Father, Make me undefeatable in Spiritual Warfare. Amen
