    This is what we have heard:
    They soon forgot His works;
    They did not wait for His counsel,


    But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, And tested God in the desert.

    And He gave them their request, But sent leanness into their soul.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭106:13-15‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    Beloved ones, let us not forget the works of our Lord Jesus Christ, and let us wait for His counsel.

    Let us not lusted exceedingly in the wilderness and let us test not God when having desert experience.

    Beloved ones, what works of the Lord we have remembered ? For we who have waited for the Lord, what counsel we have heard ?

    We heard:
    “They soon forgot His works;
    They did not wait for His counsel, -Psalms 106:13

    Of His works, this is what we have heard:
    I will remember the works of the Lord; Surely I will remember Your wonders of old.”-‭Psalms‬ ‭77:11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    Of His counsel,this is what we have heard:

    “There are many plans in a man’s heart, Nevertheless the Lord’s counsel—that will stand.”
    ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭19:21‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    Let us pray that we may find grace in the Lord’s sight:

    Lord Jesus Christ,
    I didn’t forget Your works, that You are the Son of God who saved me and who have brought consolation to me. For surely I will remember Your wonders of old.
    Lord, I have waited for Your counsel and hear, though there are many plans in my mind,
    it is Your counsel, O Lord, that will stand.
    Lord, I have waited for Your counsel and hear
    that all things work together for good to me who love You,
    for You have called me
    according to Your counsel (purpose).
    Amen

    May God’s peace be with us in every way.
    To God be glory and thanksgiving. Amen.

    Oh dear brother where would we be without God on our side?

    The God of Heaven and Earth loves us, what can mortal men do to us?

    Even if they cut my body in a million pieces each piece would still praise Jesus and tell of His wonders. For Jesus saved me from my sins. They have afflicted me so. Yet He set me free.

    Jesus will protect all those who love Him.

    Psalms 91:14
    "Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name."

    Let us pray, and remind ourselves what we believe and receive:

    Lord Jesus Christ, we didn’t soon forget Your works but we remember Your works. We will also meditate on all Your work,
    And talk of Your deeds.

    Lord, we have waited for Your counsel and hear that in You we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which You purposed in Yourself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in You.
    Amen

    Oh Brother would it not be awesome if we saw the Day this allness in Christ comes true down here? Will we finally see Psalm 22 fulfilled in full?

    Psalms 22
    My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
    Why are you so far from saving me,
    so far from my cries of anguish?
    My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer,
    by night, but I find no rest.

    Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One;
    you are the one Israel praises.
    In you our ancestors put their trust;
    they trusted and you delivered them.
    To you they cried out and were saved;
    in you they trusted and were not put to shame.


    But I am a worm and not a man,
    scorned by everyone, despised by the people.
    All who see me mock me;
    they hurl insults, shaking their heads.
    “He trusts in the Lord,” they say,
    “let the Lord rescue him.
    Let him deliver him,
    since he delights in him.”


    Yet you brought me out of the womb;
    you made me trust in you, even at my mother’s breast.
    From birth I was cast on you;
    from my mother’s womb you have been my God.


    Do not be far from me,
    for trouble is near
    and there is no one to help.


    Many bulls surround me;
    strong bulls of Bashan encircle me.
    Roaring lions that tear their prey
    open their mouths wide against me.
    I am poured out like water,
    and all my bones are out of joint.
    My heart has turned to wax;
    it has melted within me.
    My mouth is dried up like a potsherd,
    and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth;
    you lay me in the dust of death.


    Dogs surround me,
    a pack of villains encircles me;
    they pierce my hands and my feet.
    All my bones are on display;
    people stare and gloat over me.
    They divide my clothes among them
    and cast lots for my garment.


    But you, Lord, do not be far from me.
    You are my strength; come quickly to help me.
    Deliver me from the sword,
    my precious life from the power of the dogs.
    Rescue me from the mouth of the lions;
    save me from the horns of the wild oxen.


    I will declare your name to my people;
    in the assembly I will praise you.
    You who fear the Lord, praise him!
    All you descendants of Jacob, honour him!
    Revere him, all you descendants of Israel!
    For he has not despised or scorned
    the suffering of the afflicted one;
    he has not hidden his face from him
    but has listened to his cry for help.


    From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly;
    before those who fear you I will fulfil my vows.
    The poor will eat and be satisfied;
    those who seek the Lord will praise him—
    may your hearts live forever!


    All the ends of the earth
    will remember and turn to the Lord,
    and all the families of the nations
    will bow down before him,
    for dominion belongs to the Lord
    and he rules over the nations.



    All the rich of the earth will feast and worship;
    all who go down to the dust will kneel before him—
    those who cannot keep themselves alive.
    Posterity will serve him;
    future generations will be told about the Lord.
    They will proclaim his righteousness,
    declaring to a people yet unborn:
    He has done it!



    My heart yearns to see Jesus rule all hearts with His loving truth, and all wilful sin is done away with because people love the truth of God, themselves and their neighbour more, more than the sand castles of the lie.

    Beloved one,
    It is right to wait eagerly!

    For we heard :
    “so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ,”
    ‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭1:7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    “For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.”
    ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    “But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:25‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    Likewise, we also heard:
    “So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord.

    For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.

    Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him.”
    ‭‭II Corinthians‬ ‭5:6-9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    So beloved one as we wait eagerly the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, we walk by faith, while we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him.

    May God’s grace and peace be with your spirit. Amen

    Likewise dear brother, walk in His love and teach His truth to those faltering in their walk with Christ, call others to Christ's light who don't know Him yet.

    That Christ's loving truth dwelling in you delights your heart now and forever.

    Let us pray, and remind ourselves what we believe and receive:

    Lord Jesus Christ, we didn’t soon forget Your works but we remember Your works.

    I remember the former things of old, For You are God, and there is no other; You are God, and there is none like You,

    Declaring the end from the beginning,
    And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
    Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure,’ Calling a bird of prey from the east,
    The man who executes My counsel,
    from a far country.
    Indeed I have spoken it;
    I will also bring it to pass.
    I have purposed it; I will also do it.”(from
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭46:10-11‬ ‭NKJV )

    Lord, we have waited for Your counsel and hear, that
    to us, who are less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that we should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ; to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places, according to the eternal purpose ( counsel ) which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.
    Therefore we were asked by apostle Paul that I do not lose heart at his tribulations for apostle Paul, which is our glory. ( from Ephesians 3:8-13)
    Amen
