HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
“Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward.” (Isaiah 58:8).
He comes by our side as our helper; nay, more. He comes to dwell within us; to be the life in our blood, the fire in our thought, the faith within us, both in inception and consummation. As David declares “I will look up to the hills from whence cometh my help”. He continues, “my help cometh from the Lord who made the heavens and the earth”.
Thus He becomes not only the recompense of the victor but the resources of the victory. He is the Captain and the Overcomer in our lives. If we have caught any help that has relieved us of a troubled morning, it has been of Him.
He lifts our eyes up unto Himself and delivers us from apathy, from discontent and from fears. He is always the helper in this heavenly competition and will be a great reward in all the ages to come. Yes, brethren there awaits us a very rich reward for those that endure to the end.
If our life is hidden with Him we shall have to go through the same trials that He went through, but we shall not find them too hard. If once we take Him fully as the strength of our life and our all in all, we shall be able to lay aside all the hindering things that press upon us day by day. and like Paul, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2Timothy 5:7-8.
That will be your declaration on the final day of the race Hallelujah. Are you with Him this morning?
