_"The queen of the South will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here."(Matthew 12:42)_

_*It doesn't take much to recognize the greatness of God, it simply will require diligent commitment from the one who wish to know Him and your disposition will make it happen.*_

_Most times we tend to forget where we come from, who made us to come and why we came. We are God's made and He made us for Himself. We must never lose this consciousness if we are going to reach our goal in life._

_*When we fail to know who we have in God, we will continue to chase after other man made gods that will never add anything meaningful to our lives, but sorrow and disaster*._

_Jesus tells the pharisees and the Scribes who were asking Him for a sign that no sign will be given to them except the sign of Jonah. Jesus was doing good among them, but they did not see the messiah in Him, but in foolishness were still seeking for a sign._

_*We must not be like them, instead, we should open our heart to accept Jesus who is greater than Jonah and Solomon. We should place our trust in Him and He will take care of us. We must make Him our number one and we should never leave Him to seek after other gods.*_

_There is no one like Jesus and no one can do what He is doing. He is the greatest and the mighty one. The miracle working God. He is near to those who put their trust in Him and His help and mercy is guaranteed at all times. We must trust in Him, believe in Him, hold unto Him firmly, make Him the number one in our lives and He will take care of us like no other person or gods would._

_*Good morning dearest one. Smile😊as you do your work and do have a lovely day and and a blessed new week. May God give you the grace to trust in Him at all times. Amen. And may the Almighty God bless you: the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.*_

*Meditation:* Micah 6:1-4,6-8/Psalm 50:5-6,8-9,16-17,21,23/Matthew 12:38-42

*Watch-Word:* To one whose way is blameless, I will show the salvation of God.

*Jesus is the greatest king, come to Him today and He will take care of you and bless you beyond measure.*
