"THE FRUITS OF FAITH" Late Mr. N. Daniel
"I the Lord do keep it; I will water it every moment: lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day."
We know we belong to a mighty Saviour. He watches over our safety, keeps us, and waters us every moment. As I read the Bible, as I see the records of men whose lives proved the faithfulness of God, my heart melts in gratitude. Abraham, Joseph, Moses and Elijah did not seek the world or the worlds glory. They sought Him, the living God, and they saw His faithfulness. Especially Daniel, at the age of ninety, fasting and praying for his people, saw the fulfillment of Gods promises in their lives. God raised up Cyrus to help them out. God can raise the heathen to support us. God can rain provision for us. Our foes are within us and not without. Watch and pray that the "old man" may not rise again. No one from without can harm us. When we are humble and our heart is clean, heaven finds a channel to flow through us.
Einstein was able to discover physical formulae which have helped to release enormous amounts of physical energy. God will inspire you with bigger spiritual formulae and greater messages. "He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him." "But rather seek ye first the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you." These are great formulae. Let them be fulfilled in your lives.
I thought we should sell some things in our home in order to conduct the retreat, but the meal in the barrel and the oil did not fail. I did not have to sell anything. Prayer is our real support. God has given us men who take on responsibility and manage it perfectly.
A man who seeks his own becomes smaller and smaller until he disappears. A man who spends himself for the kingdom of God waxes greater and greater and greater until his heart envelopes the whole world. Faith views the end of times. It discovers formulae that show the end of times. Moses saw the time of Christ. "I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him." (Deut.18:18). Moses saw Christ at a distance.
"He shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root: Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit." (Isaiah 27:6). Take note that Israel will blossom and bud, not Jacob. Jacob has been transformed. The whole earth will be filled with his fruit. God is with us. Oh to be God-conscious and Christ-conscious day and night! We must expect to see things the world has never seen. God will keep you night and day. There is a big fight for you in this year. People must see in your demeanour that you are no ordinary person. Whoever touches you will get a great shock because God will keep you as the "apple of His eye."
It is given to us to prove Him. Everyone that goes from here to any place must be a challenge to others. You just keep close to Him and your fruit will fill the whole earth. Your loved ones may conradict every word of yours. When you are full of the fruits of God, they will desire to learn from you. Your faith will break every barrier and conquer.
