WHEN YOU ARE WORSHIPPING GOD THE WAY YOU SHOULD WORSHIP HIM, HE DRAWS NEAR.
GOD DOES NOT HAVE COMPASSION ON UNGRATEFUL PEOPLE.
IF YOU ARE TOO BIG TO THANK GOD, WHEN YOU ASK HIM TO LIFT YOUR SIEGE, HE IS GOING TO ASK YOU TO DO IT YOURSELF.
– Pastor E.A. Adeboye at RCCG Annual Holy Ghost Congress 2021 tagged ‘THE SIEGE IS OVER’, Day 1 Evening Session
Our session today is going to be in 3 small parts. Session 1 we are going to thank Him, that’s up to each individual. Those who were leading choruses tonight sang all manner of songs and one of the songs says “I know where I started from, I know where I am now and therefore all glory to you my God”.
There are some songs that are personal, others may join you to sing but you know what it means to you. I told you about a song that came on the scene just about a year ago that says “I am grateful for I have obtained mercy because it is not every one that has obtained mercy”. That would be the first segment. Individuals will thank God.
Then we go on to praise that we can all do together. We know what He has done, we can begin to tell Him. Oh You made the heaven and the earth. Oh you spoke and Light came out of darkness.
Oh You breathed on the Red Sea and the Red Sea parted, Oh You made bitter water sweet, You brought water out of the rock. You opened the blind eyes of Bartimaeus. Oh there was a man who was born without eyes and you gave him two brand new eyes. As many of them that you can remember, tell Him.
That is praise. That will get you into the courtyard and then you worship Him, you call Him by all the names that you know. When you are worshipping Him the way you should worship Him, He draws near. How do I know when He draws near? Your head will swell. Suddenly you feel like crying, it’s not that you are sad, it is tears of joy of His presence. The Bible says in His presence there is fullness of joy. By the time you get there, the devil will know that He has lost the battle over you.
Before we go over to these three segments, I will like to give some of you listening to me all over the world who might not know who is this God I am talking about. I am talking about the Lord Jesus Christ the Saviour.
You will not know how sweet He is until you have tasted Him, The Bible says “taste and see that the Lord is good” and you will be able to taste Him by surrendering your life to Him, say to Him “Okay Lord take over my life, I want to be part of your family and I want to know what it feels like to have you as my Father”.
Cry to the Almighty God, Lord Jesus save my soul, have mercy on me and let your blood wash away all my sins and I will serve you for the rest of my life.
Has God done anything for you? For the next five minutes just thank Him. He does not have respect for ungrateful people. If you are too big to thank Him, when you ask Him to lift your siege, He is going to ask you to do it yourself. Thank Him, Father I thank you for where you have brought me from, thank you for thus far you have brought me and thank you for where you are taking me.
I thank you that I obtained mercy, it’s not everybody who obtained mercy, Lord thank you for being merciful to me. Thank you for it is your mercy that has kept me going, it is your mercy that has kept me a step ahead of the enemy. Thank you, Lord.
🎶 You are the mighty God, You are the mighty God. Goliath bow before you, You are the mighty God.
You don’t need to sing that song if there is no Goliath in your life. If you can locate a Goliath in your life, you will sing that song. When you remind Him He has done this thing before and He is the same yesterday, today and forever. What you are saying is do it again.
On your own, remind Him of all He has done that you know about Him. I know You, I know what you have done before, I know there is no impossibility with You.
I know you have made a way where there was no way. I know what you did before, you can do again. Thank You Father.
You are going to worship Him, we have come to that place where He Himself is going to come to you and say ” my child, what exactly do you want?” Because we are going to worship Him.
Tell Him who you think He is. He is the Saviour, He is the Provider, He is the Bright and Morning Star, the One who never lost a war.
Go ahead and begin to worship Him, call Him by His names. He is the unchangeable changer, He is wiser than the wisest. He is greater than the greatest. Worship Him, Magnify His Holy name for there is no one like Him.
