The Sinking Soul Can Soar ( by Charles Spurgeon)

The Sinking Soul Can Soar

 

Psalm 22:14

My heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.

Our blessed Lord experienced a terrible sinking and melting of soul. “The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity, but a wounded spirit who can bear?” Deep depression of spirit is the most grievous of all trials; all besides is as nothing. Well might the suffering Saviour cry to His God, “Be not far from me,” for above all other seasons a man needs his God when his heart is melted within him because of heaviness. Believer, come near the cross this morning, and humbly adore the King of glory as having once been brought far lower, in mental distress and inward anguish, than any one among us; and mark His fitness to become a faithful High Priest, who can be touched with a feeling of our infirmities. Especially let those of us whose sadness springs directly from the withdrawal of a present sense of our Father’s love, enter into near and intimate communion with Jesus. Let us not give way to despair, since through this dark room the Master has passed before us. Our souls may sometimes long and faint, and thirst even to anguish, to behold the light of the Lord’s countenance: at such times let us stay ourselves with the sweet fact of the sympathy of our great High Priest. Our drops of sorrow may well be forgotten in the ocean of His griefs; but how high ought our love to rise! Come in, O strong and deep love of Jesus, like the sea at the flood in spring tides, cover all my powers, drown all my sins, wash out all my cares, lift up my earth-bound soul, and float it right up to my Lord’s feet, and there let me lie, a poor broken shell, washed up by His love, having no virtue or value; and only venturing to whisper to Him that if He will put His ear to me, He will hear within my heart faint echoes of the vast waves of His own love which have brought me where it is my delight to lie, even at His feet for ever.

 

You Will Laugh Last But Laugh Best ( by Fenny West)

You will Laugh Last

laughter medicine

The First Shall be that Last

and the Last shall be the First

You may laugh last

but you  will laugh best.

 

Because of the Lord’s favour

You will laugh at adversity

As He lift you up in all your endeavour.

 

Because the boundary lines have fallen in pleasant places for you,

You shall laugh at penury and poverty.

 

Because He has given you beauty for ashes, the oil of joy fore mourning, the garment of praise in place of the spirit of heaviness, you shall laugh at conspiracy and infirmity.

 

Your portion shall be:

When the Lord brought back the captives, we were like those who dream. Our mouths were filled with LAUGHTER.

For it was said amongst my relatives, my friends, my companions, my co-workers, The Lord has done great things for him/her. And we are thrilled. We are thrilled with joy.

1     When the LORD brought back the captivity of Zion, We were like those who dream.

2     Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, ” The LORD has done great things for them.”

3          The LORD has done great things for us, And we are glad. Ps126:1-2

I Will Laugh at Death-

Pre-mature death

I will laugh at debt

I will laugh at dearth

I will laugh at defeat

I will laugh at dirt

I will laugh at disease.

 

Yes, I will laugh at destruction

I will laugh at damnation

I will laugh at depression

I will laugh at division

I will laugh at deception

I will laugh at derogation

I will laugh at discrimination

 

I will laugh at demons

I will laugh at danger

I will laugh at disaster

I will laugh at demise

I will laugh at dishonour

I will laugh at disgrace

I will laugh at dread.

 

 

Yes, I will laugh at divide-and-rule-spirits

I will laugh at diabolical spirits

I will laugh at derangement

I will laugh at disunity

I will laugh at debacles

I will laugh at doom

I will laugh at dead dreams.

 

54   So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

55   ” O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?”

56   The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.

57   But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Cor15:54-57

4     Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

5     You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.

6     Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.

Ps23:4-6

7     And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.

18   I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.

Rev:1:17-18

8     We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.

2Cor5:8

The Comfort of Christ’s Coming

 13   But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope.

14   For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.

15   For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.

16   For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.

17   Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

18   Therefore comfort one another with these words.

1Thess4:13-18

 

Thanks Be to God

Thanks be to God
Who leads us in His triumph
Thanks be to God
Who’s got the victory. X2

We have overcome the world
By the blood of the lamb
And loving not our lives
Even unto death

The word of our testimony
Tells the world about his love
As we shout unto the nations
He is coming back!
Oh, he is coming back!

CH: Thanks be to God
Who leads us in His triumph
Thanks be to God
Who’s got the victory. X2

Through the blood Of Our Saviour
We are set free from the curse
Jesus is the One and only
Lasting sacrifice

He has conquered satan’s power
No more shall we be ashamed
Just as he defeated death
We shall never die
No, we shall never die

CH: Thanks be to God
Who leads us in His triumph
Thanks be to God
Who’s got the victory. X2

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Cor.15:57

14 And Abraham called the name of the place, The-LORD-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the LORD it shall be provided.” Gen22:14

19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied
25 I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread. . Ps37:19,25
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.
Ps23:5-6

Genesis 13: Abram Inherits Canaan
1 Then Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, to the South.
2 Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold.

Genesis 26: Isaac and Abimelech
1 There was a famine in the land, besides the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines, in Gerar.
2 Then the LORD appeared to him and said: “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you.
3 Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father.
4 And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed;
5 because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.”
6 So Isaac dwelt in Gerar.
12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the LORD blessed him.
13 The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous;
14 for he had possessions of flocks and possessions of herds and a great number of servants. So the Philistines envied him.

25 When Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away their spoil, they found among them an abundance of valuables on the dead bodies, and precious jewelry, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away; and they were three days gathering the spoil because there was so much.
2Chro20:25

8 ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the LORD of hosts.
Hag2:8
Do Not Rob God
8 ” Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘ In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings.
9 You are cursed with a curse, For you have robbed Me, Even this whole nation.
10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the LORD of hosts, ” If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.
11 ” And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” Says the LORD of hosts;
12 And all nations will call you blessed, For you will be a delightful land,” Says the LORD of hosts.

6 ” You have sown much, and bring in little; You eat, but do not have enough; You drink, but you are not filled with drink; You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; And he who earns wages, Earns wages to put into a bag with holes.”Hag1:6
9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich. 2Cor8:9
The Cheerful Giver
6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.
8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.
9 As it is written: ” He has dispersed abroad, He has given to the poor; His righteousness endures forever.”
10 Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness,2Cor9:6-10

18 Indeed I have all and abound. I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things sent from you, a sweet-smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God.
19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.Phil4:18-19
38 Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” Luke6:38
10 And the LORD restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.
11 Then all his brothers, all his sisters, and all those who had been his acquaintances before, came to him and ate food with him in his house; and they consoled him and comforted him for all the adversity that the LORD had brought upon him. Each one gave him a piece of silver and each a ring of gold.
12 Now the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys.
13 He also had seven sons and three daughters.
Psalms 1: Book One: Psalms 1 — 41 The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly
1 Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.
Psalms 23: The LORD the Shepherd of His People A Psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

7     For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2Tim1:7

4     Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

5     You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.

6     Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.

Ps23:4-6

Proverbs 28:

1     The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion.

Isaiah 43: The Redeemer of Israel

1     But now, thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: ” Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.

2     When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. Isa43:1-2

 

17   No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the LORD.

Isa54:17

 

 

19   So shall they fear The name of the LORD from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.Isa59:19

 

10   Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’Isa41:10

 

8     Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you,” says the LORD.

9     Then the LORD put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me: ” Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.

10   See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant.”

11   Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.”

12   Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.”Jer1:8-12

2     Now Gideon perceived that He was the Angel of the LORD. So Gideon said, “Alas, O Lord GOD! For I have seen the Angel of the LORD face to face.”

23   Then the LORD said to him, “Peace be with you; do not fear, you shall not die.”

24   So Gideon built an altar there to the LORD, and called it The-LORD-Is-Peace. To this day it is still in Ophrah of the Abiezrites. Judges6:22-24

 

Judges 7: Gideon’s Valiant Three Hundred

1     Then Jerubbaal (that is, Gideon) and all the people who were with him rose early and encamped beside the well of Harod, so that the camp of the Midianites was on the north side of them by the hill of Moreh in the valley.

2     And the LORD said to Gideon, “The people who are with you are too many for Me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel claim glory for itself against Me, saying, ‘My own hand has saved me.’

3     Now therefore, proclaim in the hearing of the people, saying, ‘Whoever is fearful and afraid, let him turn and depart at once from Mount Gilead.’ ” And twenty-two thousand of the people returned, and ten thousand remained.

Judges7:1-3

    9          Have I not commanded you?

    Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”Josh1:9

2Chro20:15

Psalms 27: An Exuberant Declaration of FaithA Psalm of David.

1     The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

2     When the wicked came against me To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell.

3     Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident.

 

1     God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.

2     Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

3          Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Ps46:1-3

 

19   He shall deliver you in six troubles, Yes, in seven no evil shall touch you.

20   In famine He shall redeem you from death, And in war from the power of the sword.

21   You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, And you shall not be afraid of destruction when it comes.

22   You shall laugh at destruction and famine, And you shall not be afraid of the beasts of the earth.

23   For you shall have a covenant with the stones of the field, And the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.

24   You shall know that your tent is in peace; You shall visit your dwelling and find nothing amiss.

25   You shall also know that your descendants shall be many, And your offspring like the grass of the earth.

26   You shall come to the grave at a full age, As a sheaf of grain ripens in its season.

27   Behold, this we have searched out; It is true. Hear it, and know for yourself.”

Job5:19-27

33        These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John16:33

Wind and Wave Obey Jesus

35   On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.”

36   Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him.

37   And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling.

38   But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”

39   Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.

40   But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?”

41   And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!”

 

Psalms 91: Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God

1     He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2     I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”

3     Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.

4     He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

5     You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,

6     Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

7     A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.

8     Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked.

9     Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place,

10   No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;

11   For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.

12   In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

13   You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

14   “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

15   He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.

16   With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”

 

Listen to this story:

 

Shohoiya Yokowai spent 28 years of his life in prison. It was not a prison of bars & locks & wardens, but a self-imposed prison of fear. He was a Japanese soldier on the island of Guam during WW2. And when the American forces landed, he fled into the jungle & found a cave in which he hid for 28 years because he was afraid of being captured by the Americans. He learned that the war was over by reading one of the thousands of pamphlets dropped into the jungle. But he was afraid. So for 28 years he lived in the cave, coming out only at night to look for roaches & rats & frogs & mangoes on which he survived. Finally some natives found him & convinced him that it would be all right for him to come out of his jungle prison. We think, “What a waste! Imagine, spending 28 years living as a prisoner of fear.” Yet, there are a lot of people who are prisoners of fear. Fears like… fear of failing fear of succeeding fear of disappointing people fear of losing our child fear of the unknown fear of dying Frankly, I can have a long list of different fears that people have. They’re not aware of it simply because they call “fear” with a different name. How about you? Do you have fear that’s preventing God to fully bless your life? Are you trying to control your life instead of letting God have His way? Listen, the best way to overcome your fear is to have a strong faith in God and you do this by regularly meditating scripture. In Romans 10:17 says, “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” No doubt, in developing your faith there’s no better substitute to scripture memorization and meditation. So I encourage you to take action, be bold, and make a decision now to start memorizing scriptures.

To spring up to the glory of God.

From glory to glory and faith to faith.
He presses on for the mark

He puts principalities and powers
Where they belong- under his feet.

Uses calamity and adversity as springboards
For climbing the ladder of life to a higher playing field.
He looks not at the things which are seen
But the things which are unseen,
Knowing that the things which are seen
Are temporary, transient and passing away,
But the things which are unseen are eternal.
He knows that his light afflictions are working for him
An exceeding weight of eternal glory.
When he is tested, he knows that he will come forth like gold
and that better will be his end than his beginning, like Job of old.

The Soldier of Christ…

He can do all things through Christ who strengthens him.
All things are his through Christ.
All things are possible for him
because he believes in the God who makes all things
possible and with whom nothing is impossible.
All things, and that means,
ALL things work together for good for him
because he loves God and
is the called according to purpose.
Ro8:28, Matt19:26, Phil4:13,1Cor3:23

The greater One indwells the Soldier of Christ,
And this is the Holy Spirit
Who inspires him, propels him, controls him, guides him,
comforts him, strengthens him, empowers him,
intercedes for him, corrects him, rebukes him,
instructs him, gives him revelation knowledge
that is above natural knowledge and endows
him with the gifts of the Spirit for the service
of encouraging, edifying the Body and for
the work of ministry. He is totally yielded to Him.

The Soldier of Christ…

CGCC

He endures hardness as a good soldier of Christ
and fights the good fight of faith.
He is passionate about his vision
And sets his face like a flint to finish it with finesse
Like his Master, Jesus, like Paul did,
like David did, like Joseph did.
He looks to Jesus always as the
Author and Finisher of his faith
He suffers with Christ as to reign with Him.
He knows that as Christ is so he is. He is the light of the world
A city on the hill, a salt of the earth
and determines to live up to Christ’s expectation-
not by his might nor by power but by the power of the Holy Spirit.
He knows he has authority in Christ to rule and reign
with Him and exercises this authority in all areas of his life.

The Soldier of Christ…

CGCC

Whilst often he suffers violence, he does not
Surrender but takes the kingdom of God by force.
He exercises dominion over principalities and powers
and diabolical spirits arrayed against him
and makes a public spectacle of them like Jesus
using the power that Jesus gave him over all the power of the enemy.
He says what God says, agrees with the word of God,
believes God’s report regardless of what he sees
or hears or what people say.
He is not perturbed by bad news
And remains of good cheer because he knows that
Although in the world he would have tribulation
he knows that Christ has overcome the world.
Therefore he has also overcome because of the indwelling Spirit.
He has a different spirit like Joshua and Caleb,
Like Paul , like David who was a man after God’s own heart.
No weapon fashioned against him prospers.
When the enemy comes like a flood,
the Spirit of the Lord raises a standard against him.
He gives thanks in everything, knowing that
it is the will of God for him in Christ Jesus.
He has an excellent spirit like Daniel and Joseph
and does whatever he does to his utmost and to the glory of God.

The Soldier of Christ…

… does not entangle himself with the affairs of this world
But always ready to move when the cloud moves,
Because he is led of the Holy Spirit and not by his five senses.
He is prepared to be a ‘fool’ for God
because he knows that the foolishness of God
is wiser that the wisdom of men.
He is addicted to the word and fellowship with God.
That is why he abides in the word, wallows in it,
delights in it more than his daily food like Job.
He does not walk in the counsel of the ungodly
nor stands in the way of sinners
nor sits in the seat of God-mockers.
His delight is in the word of God
and on His word he meditates day and night.
And for this reason he is like a tree planted
by the streams of water that brings

forth its fruit in due season.
And whatever he does prospers.

1Cor1:18, 20-21,25-28, Col3:16,
Ps1:1-3,2Tim2:15,1 Pet2:2Job23:12, Jn15:8

The soldier of Christ

is a warrior
He is ever ready to give a testimony of

Whose he is and who he is in Christ
and what Christ has done for

him and the reason for his hope.
He is not ashamed of the gospel,
knowing that it is the power of God
for the salvation of those who believe.

1Pet3:15, Rom1:16

CGCC

 The soldier of Christ

Does not leave himself vulnerable to the enemy
but puts on the whole armour of God as to stand in the evil day.
Hence he covers his mind with the helmet of salvation
To prevent, ward off, and guard against
every insinuation and wicked suggestion of the devil.
He puts on the belt of truth to expose
every lie of the enemy whom he knows is a father lies.
He also lifts the shield of faith above all to extinguish
all the flaming arrows of the enemy. He uses this defensive
weapon by confessing the word of God like Jesus did:
it is written …It is written… It is written…
He calls those things which be not as though they are
and sees from a divine perspective. He is well-booted
with the gospel of peace, spreading the good news of salvation
which includes healing and deliverance and prosperity
and soundness of mind- the whole man.
He does not forget the robe of
right-standing with God that Jesus gave him
and does not stand in his own righteousness
which he knows is like a filthy rag before God.

The Soldier of Christ…

Renews his mind with the word of God
and has the mind of Christ by imitating him in all he does.
 The soldier of Christ loves as Christ loves,
overcomes evil with good, prays for his enemies,
does good to those who despitefully use him,
does not allow the root of bitterness to grow in him
but forgives as Christ forgave him.
