Focus: Psalms 143:8 - KJV
8. Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
The world is like a Sea. Without a compass, it is difficult to navigate successfully thereat. When in the middle of the Sea, if there be no compass, the tendency is to be making motion without making moving progress. Moving but remaining in the same place. So, the Psalmist recognized that without the Lord’s compass, he was hopeless in the walk in life. Hence, he asked the Lord to help him to know the way wherein he should walk. That was then. Now, there is a clear pointer to the compass through which we can walk aright. Jesus Christ declared by Himself that He is the way, the truth and the life. The Lord whom the psalmist was praying to for a compass, gave us Himself the Compass in the Lord Jesus such that no one can get to the Father except through Him. That means, the Almighty is the success index over this ocean called the earth but there is no linking with Him except through the only way, Christ Jesus. He is the only way because He knows the Father intimately and He is in the Father as the Father is in Him. Hence, to put this Compass to good use, we must obey His commands. When we do, we can ask anything in His name and have it. Aside that, the kind of stunts He pulled while here, we can also pull and greater stunts also. What a super grace.
Beloved, your way to navigate the earth successfully is in your believing in and obeying the commands of Christ. Your refusal to do so is the cause of your perambulation. Ask Peter: after his perambulation over the night, he got the compass and caught a draught of fish – huge success. He actually said “but at thy word” before doing the launch. He obeyed the command of Christ, his Compass and saw daunting success. You want to succeed, follow the commands of The Way.
SOLUTION: Get to know who Christ stands for; understand His commands and ensure their performance. Then assert your position by asking anything you want in His name. access to the Father is guaranteed.
In the name that is above every other name, from today, as we begin to obey the voice of the Lord Jesus Christ, perambulation ends in our lives in Jesus’ name. By the power in the name of Jesus, every of our requests finds fulfilment now, in Jesus’ name. Greater works than Christ did we will start to do also from now in Jesus’ name.
