God has done many unimaginable things for humanity to witness. The depth of his knowledge is rare and unsearchable. A psalmist tried his best to recount God’s goodness and said,
“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name. Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite” (Psalm 147:3-5).
Lesson on Power of God
God is the greatest and highest being in existence. He has an autonomous power to do whatever he likes. His path is right and he is ever faithful. God does goodness and he detests evil. He demonstrates goodness in many ways. He favors, promotes, and blesses people that trust him.
The Creator deserves human praises; everyone should praise him. We must praise him for his deep and genuine love towards us. Every living soul should sing and shout hallelujah to a wonderful God who does wonders at all time. Let a living soul shout hallelujah!
Prayer for God’s Power
l love you God for all the signs and wonders that you have performed for humanity. I specially thank you for all your goodness in my life! Thank you for the beauty of everyday that I witness.

The praises of your goodness will never elude my mouth – for I will praise you forever more. For in the name of your only Son Jesus Christ I offer all my praises. Amen.
God challenged Judah inhabitants to stand up for righteousness and stop abusing the weak and the less privileged people. Judah would be blessed if they care for others, but they would suffer terrible consequence if they act otherwise.
Jeremiah prophesied, “
“Thus says the Lord: Execute judgment and righteousness, and deliver the plundered out of the hand of the oppressor. Do no wrong and do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, or the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place.
For if you indeed do this thing, then shall enter the gates of this house, riding on horses and in chariots, accompanied by servants and people, kings who sit on the throne of David. But if you will not hear these words, I swear by myself,” says the Lord, “that this house shall become a desolation’” (Jeremiah 22:3-5).
Lesson on Standing for Righteousness
Children of God are required to fairly treat others – with respect, and without prejudice. To demonstrate that we are truly God’s children, we must not violate the right of others.
We must not take advantage of other people, and we must abstain from selfish ambitions. However, our behavior (as God’s true children) must be to care for the less privileged people.
We must consider the needs of others. We must provide for orphans, widows, and other people in position of need. Jehovah will delight in us if we carefully observe these things.
Once he is satisfied, we should be expecting him to be bless us – he will lift us above our limitations. Jehovah will ensure that we do not suffer lack!
Pray to Stand for Righteousness
Dear God, please help me to care for others. I do not want to be a selfish individual who is only obsessed with his/her personal needs. Help me to have empathy for others, and help me to do my best in meeting their needs.
Please fill be with your divine Holy Spirit to do what is just; empower me with grace to demonstrate good heart towards others.
Let me be your true ambassador on earth, so that people can be happy and praise your holy name. After all these things, please bless me, and meet me in every area of my needs. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
Believers are challenged to understand the real motivation behind the salvation of their souls received through Jesus Christ. No one should take his or her salvation for granted, but deeply appreciate it.
The scripture stated,
“how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him, God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will?” (Hebrews 2:3-4).
Lesson on Motive of Salvation
The process of obtaining salvation for humankind was never cheap for Jesus Christ.
He had to vacate heaven (with all its comforts) to come to earth; he had to suffer persecution from his enemies.
Ultimately, Christ had to die on the cross to obtain salvation for humankind.
Hence, no child of God should take his/her grace of salvation for granted! We are to humbly come to the feet of Jesus Christ and accept him as our Lord and Savior. Also, to appreciate Christ’s work of salvation, we must truthfully serve God with a devoted mind.
Prayer on Motive of Salvation
“I have decided to follow Jesus; I have decided to follow Jesus; I have decided to follow Jesus: No turning back; No turning back.”
I (mention your name), I give my life to Jesus Christ. I believe he is the Son of God; he has paid for my sins, and I receive my forgiveness of sin through him. Therefore, I declare him (Jesus Christ) to be the Lord of my life.
I give my complete life to him, and I will faithfully serve him with all my strength and might. I will follow and serve Jesus Christ throughout my life!
Please Lord, give me grace to serve you unto the end! For in the name of Jesus Christ alone I have prayed.
God spoke through Prophet Jeremiah that he would destroy an arrogant nation that exalted itself above his interest. God said,
“And Moab shall be destroyed as a people, because he exalted himself against the Lord” (Jeremiah 48:42).
Lesson on God’s Judgement on Sinners
All people are made by God, and everyone is accountable to him. Both Christians and non-Christian are accountable to God! The Creator is impartial and will exercise righteous judgement on all people. He will bless whoever satisfies his desires, but punish unrepentant sinners.
All people are therefore encouraged to serve God faithfully and maintain a consistent relationship with him. It is important that everyone knows that God cannot be adequately satisfied God without a confession of Jesus Christ as Lord. Jesus Christ is the true Son of God, and without him no one will see God (John 14:6).
Pray to Live in Righteousness
Dear God, I humble myself before you so that I can be saved! I repent from my sins, and I confess your Son Jesus Christ as my Lord and personal Savior. I submit my desires to you from today. I will obey your commandments, and faithfully serve you throughout my life.
Please count me worthy for your eternal kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
