Rhapsody Of Realities Sunday 1st (Rhapsody of Realities Today)

CELEBRATE HIS GOODNESS EVERY DAY For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened (Mark 6:52).

In Mark 6, the Bible tells us how the disciples of Jesus were gripped with fear when they saw Him walking on the water. Why were they afraid? We find the answer in our theme verse: “…they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.”

They had seen several miracles with Jesus and the latest of such miracles was that of multiplying bread and fish to feed thousands of people (Read Matthew 14:13-21). Yet, it didn’t seem to mean anything to them; they were still hardened in their hearts. Some are like that in the Church today; not considering as they should, the miracles of Christ, performed through the Spirit today.

It reminds me of an inspiring experience I had in 1981. I was attending a crusade where the Archbishop Benson Idahosa had invited R.W Schambach who was the guest speaker on that particular night. After he had preached and prayed, there were several miracles. The first testifier to come up the platform was a young lady who had been deaf in both ears. R.W Schambach and the Archbishop Benson Idahosa tested her and confirmed she was indeed healed.

However, I observed something else that inspired me greatly: the reaction of those two great men of God to the young lady’s testimony. They both jumped and skipped like children, in celebration of that miracle. These were men of God who had seen so many mighty miracles, but it was so inspiring to see them celebrate as though that was the first or only miracle they had ever witnessed.

That’s the way it should be. Be excited always at the seemingly simple things that God does in your life and in the lives of others. Joyfully celebrate His goodness every day. There’s no such thing as a “small miracle”; every blessing from God is something to shout about, something worth praising Him for. Your heart should always go out to Him in worship, praise and gratitude for His great love, mercies and grace. The Bible says He daily loads us with blessings—benefits:“Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah”(Psalm 68:19). Hallelujah!

CONFESSION

Blessed Father, I thank you for your blessings in my life, every day. I celebrate your life that’s in me, your Word that’s working mightily in me, the prosperity, health, peace, joy, victories and life of glory that I have in Christ. All glory, dominion and praise are yours, now and forever, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
