SELAH Daily Devotions!
Good Morning my Precious Bros. And Sistas! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAAZIN!
Didjaknow, that the only reason UR able to read this post is because Our Heavenly Father has blessed U 2 B alive 1 more day? And for that, please join me in exalting The Glorious Name of Jesus! As is our custom each Thursday, we encourage U 2 join us in our weekly day of Corporate Prayer. Is there any among you sick, weak, afflicted, ill-treated or faint-hearted, then as James 5:13 instructs, let’s pray!
Great is Thy Faithfulness, O God our Father! There is no shadow of turning with Thee. Thy changes not; Thy compassions fail not; as Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be! Morning by morning new mercies I see; ALL I HAVE NEEDED THY HAND HATH PROVIDED—GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS, LORD UNTO ME!
Abba Father, it is with great joy that we entreat Thy Throne of Mercy today! Trusting confidently that You have afforded us this awesome honor and privilege not because we deserve it, but based solely on Your Loving-Kindness towards us, that draws us into Your All Encompassing Presence. Lord Jesus, we thankya for Your Faithful Obedience to please The Heart of The Father by sacrificing Your Life in our stead that we might become Sons of The True and Living God! And for this cause, we bow in humble gratitude, fully aware that as we come before you, empty and void of anything that would warrant such awesome graciousness, but only because Your Righteousness we are now the beneficiary of All that You are in the eyes of God!
Sweet Jesus, we know that You already know everything about every single one of us, because You are Omniscient and Omnipresent, but because You walked among us, allowing Yourself to be tempted at all point as we are, You learned what we experience in these earthly tabernacles and therefore You can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! Therefore, as our Great High Priest, You are able to intercede on our behalf continuously searching and conveying the thoughts, intents, emotions and physical weaknesses that we’re often unable to articulate to The Father of All Grace, Compassion and Comfort! We Thankya Lord, for being our Very Present Help!
Lord, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word, You know that sometimes, it’s difficult to over-ride the noise of the pestilence, the chaos of uncertainty and the pain of condemnation, guilt, and shame that seems to lure us into the valleys shadowed with danger, fear, anger, bitterness, anxiety, hopelessness and self-doubt! That’s why we gladly run to You, daily to find the refuge, peace, restoration that You have prepared for any who would come to You in hope-filled assurance that You will never deny Your Word!
Heavenly Father, we’re forever blessing You for continuing to renew our strength, understanding and power as we open our hearts to You, depending and relying only on Your Grace. And as we yield our all our being before you, we pray for those who are unsaved, believing You to ignite a spirit of Godly-repentance that they may confess a “Sincere YES” in their heart and in their mind that they will have a desire to come to you today and receive You as their personal Savior and Lord!
Lord, we’re believing You to put a “Committed YES” in the hearts and minds of every backslider today that this will be their day to come back to You and come back to YOUR church.
Abba Father, please touch our brother, touch our sister who has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, high blood pressure, low blood pressure and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. We come into agreement with your Word and declare that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! And as You are strengthening these, we ask that you also invigorate, encourage and replenish the spirits, minds and bodies of those who are charged to care for their loved ones!
Lord, as always, we pray for every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, trusting that You will release Divine power, Supernatural strength, consolation, health, provision, prosperity and protection. We pray also Father, that You preserve them thru the tests that You have Sovereignly summoned us to go thru and keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that You will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with every reward as You have promised in Your Word.
Father, we lift up every spiritual leader, asking an immediate manifestation of that special miracle for each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit. Jesus, we’re trusting and believing that you will Grace them to be the examples in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love with You, trust wholly in and commit to live the rest of their lives serving You!
Father, as we lift up our children, our children’s children and by faith, we cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them, committing them into Your Providential care, we realize that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too and we have the blessed assurance that their steps are being ordered by Your eyes!
Holy Spirit, stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name that they will have a desire for an even greater personal, intimate relationship with Creator God through fellowship of Holy Spirit that they might prove what is the perfect and acceptable will of The Lord Jesus!
Knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying for the government/legislative/corporate leaders of our nation. Heavenly Father, we’re trusting that You will visit them in the night seasons with dreams and visions, warning them that He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment. He who digs a hole and scoops it out will fall into the pit he has made. The trouble he causes recoils on himself and his violent schemes will come down on his own head.
We’re asking that You endow the hearts of Your people with a peace that surpasses all understanding and the confident expectation that our times are in Your Hands and that regardless of the deceitfulness of this world, You have promised to protect, provide and preserve the righteous who trust and obey Your Word!
We’re grateful that as You continue to open the eyes of our understanding, Your people are not easily deceived by those who would desire to entrap us in bondage to that which You have delivered us from.
Abba Father, help us to understand that salvation only comes to those who trust in the Name and Blood of Jesus ALONE as the Only Power to save us! Give us a sign of Your Goodness, that our enemies may see it and be put to shame. For You, Who searches minds and hearts will continue to shield, help, comfort and save those whose hearts are upright before You.
Father, we believe that every demonic-induced spirit of temptation, addiction, oppression, depression, rejection, self-hate, suicide, fear and failure is already defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness is being released now, in Jesus Name!
Father, we rejoice now in confidence and quietness, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat! We praise You Father, confidently assured that You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayers as sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy, You will not withhold Your Mercy from us and Your Love and Your Truth is a wall around us!
Abba Father, we revere, honor and praise You now, for we trust and believe that In The Exalted Name of Jesus it is done! Amen 3X and It Is So!
