PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

 

SELAH DAILY DEVOTIONS!

 

Good Morning Family! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAAZIN!

We’re delighted that you have joined us today in our Weekly Corporate Thursdays’ Prayer and Fasting! While the world is foolishly looking to man to deliver us, we, Your Children, in faithful obedience, look to You, JESUS, The Author and Finisher of our Faith to cause us to NOT JUS SURVIVE BUT THRIVE in the day of evil!

BECAUSE OF WHO U R, WE GIVE U GLORAAA…BCUZ OF WHO U R, WE GIVE U PRAIZ! BECAUSE OF WHO U R, I WILL LIFT MY VOICE AND SAY, LORD, I WORSHIP U, BCUZ OF WHO U R…HERE WE ARE TO WORSHIP, HERE WE ARE TO BOW DOWN, HERE WE ARE TO SAY THAT YOU’RE OUR KING! YOU’RE ALTOGETHER LOVELY, ALTOGETHER WORTHY, ALTOGETER WONDERFUL! LET’S UNITE OUR HEARTS, MINDS AND SPIRIT TO PRAY…

 

Father in Heaven, here we are once again! We come today with upstretched arms, open hands and grateful hearts, for this is the day that You have made! We enter into The Splendor of Your Magnificent Glory, rejoicing  because we know that it’s only because of Your Unconditional Love, Grace and Mercy, that has allowed us one more day to  embrace this life of righteousness, peace, love, joy and wholeness!

We’re thankful for this new opportunity to surrender ourselves completely to Your Will, as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable unto You. From our Mother’s womb, You’ve proven Yourself to be Faithful and True; therefore, we’re trusting You to provide everything that we need today to sustain us thru whatever challenges that unfold during the course of this day! Abba Father, we know that You Alone are our God, Guard and Guide!

Daddy, before we go any further, we stand humbly before Your Sovereignty asking You to forgive us for everything that we have spoken, done and even thought that was not pleasing in Your sight. Open the eyes of our understanding that we might see sin through Your eyes, acknowledge it’s evilness and quicken our spirits to not make excuses, but to immediately repent, confess with our mouths our wrongdoing! For You, Heavenly Father, have assured us that if we would confess our sins, You will Faithfully forgive us, and wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, cleansing us from all unrighteousness, and restoring the breach that our disobedience has caused between our poor souls and our Lord and Savior, Jesus! As we walk thru the day ahead, clear our minds so that we can hear from You and cleanse our hearts that we may deny ourselves, trust and obey Your Will.

Precious Jesus, when this world closes in on us, help us to follow our Redeemer’s example — to slip away and find a quiet place to pray. We know that prayer is our best response when we’re being pushed beyond our limits. We thank You because even when we can’t pray, You listen to our hearts and interpret every moan, groan and sigh of our wearied spirits! Father, I thank You that despite our fractures and dysfunctions , You are yet able to use us to do Your will ensuring The You Alone get The Glory!

Abba Father, continue to bless us that we may be a blessing to others. Keep us strong that we may help the weak. Keep us uplifted that we may have words of encouragement for others. We pray for those who are lost and can’t find their way. We pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood. We pray for those who don’t know You intimately. We pray for those who don’t believe that You sent Jesus, not to condemn us, but to convict us and to free us from the power, pain and penalty of Sin!

Father, help us to not complain about things that are out of our control. Help us to recognize that faith in God not only changes people, it changes me; and only You, O God have the Power to change people and things! 

 

Sweet Holy Spirit, we cry out to You, trusting You Omniscience, acknowledging that nothing ever happens that takes You by surprise. We ask that as Your Eyes go throughout this world, remember us! Look on the suffering throughout the lands. Look on the chaos, confusion, fearful and doubting hearts and minds of all who know You as Savior and Lord, and especially those who have not yet come into a saving knowledge of Your Awesome Grace! 

We stand in the gap for our nations, praying for healing, hope, peace, unity, love and joy in our homes and communities. We believing that Your Divine Favor is being poured out upon everyone now as their faith is rising to a level that we will all be faithful and obedient to live everyday as You have commanded. We’re praying that You are releasing supernatural abundance in every area of our lives, as we have committed to put You first, all everything we need is met. In Jesus Name!

Father, we’re lifting up our children, our children’s children by faith, as many of them are struggling even as the adults to adjust to the new normal in our lives! We pray that You infuse their hearts with a desire to seek You for the wisdom and understanding that inspires confidence and assurance that they are not forgotten! Let them know that You love them and that You have created them with Purpose and a Plan that shall be fulfilled  in their lives. Lord, remember the young adults as they prepare to further their education or  have entered into the workforce, encourage their hearts, restore hope for their future! As we’re committing them to Your care, we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being  Divinely orchestrated by Your eyes!

Abba, we know that You have instructed us, not  to be distracted by the temporary things but to look to the eternal, yet You know the frailness of our flesh, and how easily we’re provoked and tempted to lose focus and become overwhelmed by the cares of this world causing us to spend our days beneath clouds of evil foreboding and disrupting our peaceful nites plagued with restlessness, despondency and hopelessness! You already know whose hearts are burdened with the pressures of this life, wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness and disease, financial debt, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions, insecurities and grief! You know the widows, the vulnerable and the downcast who have born the heat of the day; those who pushed and prayed us through! Lord, lift them, reward them by giving them sweet Peace!

Lord, keep us and strengthen as only You can!

Lord, save, heal and deliver speedily all who are crying out to you, seeking Your Face at this very moment! Give us to know that because we belong to You, we are never too far that You can’t see us, reach us, comfort, shield  and protect us from anything that the devil would rail against us. Help us to understand that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower, and those that run into it and are saved!

 

Father, because the our steps are being ordered by You, You have committed Your Word towards us, no weapon that’s formed against us shall ever prosper and no trouble, test,  trial, plague or pestilence can come near our dwelling, except You have allowed it to train us to live each day solely depending and relying on You. 

 

Help us, Holy Spirit, to remember that You have sworn by Yourself to be with us Always!  As we go thru this present affliction, remind us  that this is not our first time experiencing  unexpected traumatic disruptions, but thru the good and the bad, the dark days and sleeplessness nights You have been Faithful! You stayed right there by our sides, letting us know that You Love and Care for us! Remind us that every time You put us on the wheel it is to mold, make and shape us into Your Will. Help us to not let our hearts be discouraged because Your Ways are higher than ours, Your thoughts are beyond our finite comprehension and that You are always leading and guiding our steeps, assuring safe passage from glory to Glory!

 

We thank Holy Spirit, for fully persuading us of Your Providential Presence and Power to turn everything around to work in our favor and to bring about exuberant testimonies and praises of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory!

Heavenly Father, we thank You for listening to the hearts of everyone praying with us. We thank You for piercing the hearts of those who have never accepted Your Son Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord! We are thankful that Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart now freeing them come humbled by Your Lovingkindness, confessing a “SINCERE YES’  erupting from obedient hearts to Your call, now receiving Your Mercy and Grace to Save. We Thank You that when the threat of this worldwide pandemic comes to a close, You shall lead and guide them to a local church and plant them in Your Vineyard, where they shall be taught and transformed by Your Word of Life to take their position in The Kingdom of Heaven.

We pray for all those who have walked away from You! Father, we ask that they be arrested in The Holy Ghost and convicted to declare a “committed YES” to Your Purpose for their lives, because You Alone are The Hope of This Life and The Life to come! Let today be the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR church where they will submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, and learn to love and live their lives walking to please You First!

Heavenly Father, as You have instructed us, we pray for the leaders of our nation, corporate, judicial, education, financial, healthcare institutions and essential public service employees! We’re asking that You touch the corrupted and deceitful minds and hearts, speak to them in dreams and visions letting them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! We ask You to open their minds and hearts to hear and obey Your Will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Word as decreed that The government of this world shall rest upon Your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher. Undergird them with Your Anointing and conviction to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people and rebuke every spirit who seeks to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and ministry!  Encourage their hearts and minds with the confidence that when this storm is over, they shall come thru better than they were when they went in!  In Jesus Name! AMEN 3X!

Lord, I pray for every believer who is struggling in their faith to hold on to Your Hand while reconciling the cruel reality of death, grief, sorrow, loss, isolation and loneliness! We’re asking You for a Divine Intervention of Your Supernatural Power, Strength, Health, Encouragement, Provision, Prosperity and Protection! Keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully confident that Christ in Us Is The Hope of Glorraa! Father we declare and decree that because we are more than conquers, every demonic-induced spirit of  fear is defeated NOW! We decree and declare, because of Your Yoke Destroying, Burden Bearing Anointing, that the Spirit of Love, Power a Sound-mind and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

Lord, while there are so many other things that we have yet to mention, we’re trusting that You are not just able, but You’re willing to do anything that we ask, according to You Perfect Will. We’re decreeing and believing You to fix it, Jesus, as only You can, in Jesus Name!

Abba Father, we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy! Father, we thank You and seal this Prayer In The Holy Ghost, for WE KNOW THAT IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES AND CARES ABOUT U2!

AN ANEMIC CHURCH??

AN ANEMIC CHURCH 2

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the Kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His Blood, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13-14

 

Recently, I’ve come into contact with several people who undergo Dialysis treatment due to severe kidney failure. I am certainly not an expert in these matters, so humor me in my attempt to describe, in my acutely limited understanding, how dialysis works. Okay, here goes?

Apparently, the dialysis process involves draining the blood from the patient’s body thru a machine which filters out the impurities in the blood system and returns the clean blood back into the body. The number of the times the patient visits the dialysis center weekly varies according to the level of kidney dysfunction of the individual. While the benefits outweigh the risks of this procedure, there are potentially critical consequences of this process. One being anemia. One of the markers that the physician looks at to determine the stage of anemia is the ratio of white blood cells to red blood cells.

Prayerfully, none of you will ever suffer through anything like this, in the natural; yet it prompted me to look at its similarities spiritually. It’s becoming profoundly evident that The New millennium church is suffering from a severe case of spiritual anemic. Somewhere along the way, there has been a gradual drifting away and a markedly diminishing of the revelation, significance and the Power of The BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST!

Consequently, the 21st Century Church is in dire need of a blood transfusion. The problem is most of the time this dis-ease goes virtually unnoticed and undiagnosed until we find ourselves sprawled out on a gurney in the ER (the Altar) depleted physically, emotionally, financially, relationally scrapped and spiritually bankrupt. #DON’TSHOUTMEDOWN, nah?

Oh yeah, some of us have become quite adept at putting on our ‘church-game-face’ and can actually manage to press on, for a good while, conquering one hurdle after another before draining all our strength. But inevitably, we get to that place where we’ve no other option but to come clean. ‘That’s it…I’m through…Kapoop…there’s absolute nothing left…I’ve tried to stop lying and cussin’, drinking and dopin’… I tried to handle this adulterous relationship…I’ve done all I can think of to keep this house/business/church afloat, keep these kids from going to jail…but now …I’m at my wits end.” 

And… That’s when we turn to Jesus, the True Source of All Strength and Power…The Master Physician!

You see the problem is, God never intended us to do it (LIFE) alone! That’s why He sent Jesus to restore the connection severed by Adam’s rebellion. The Blood of God’s Sacrificial Lamb flows from The Righteous to the unrighteous.  Fortunately, IF applied daily to our hearts, minds, our will through prayer and study of His Word, filtering into every area of our lives, we are fortified and SANCTIFIED HOLY and ACCEPTABLE 2 GOD!

TRUST2KNO, the transforming Blood of Jesus purifies our sin-consciousness and empowers us to overcome all of this life’s maladies, replenishing  A WELL SPRING OF HOPE AND HEALING to an anemic church OVERFLOWING onto a lost and unholy world. 

THAT’S THE GOSPEL! NEED A BLOOD TRANSFUSION? #hookmeupLORD

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10

Being next to the oldest of seven kids, I can’t remember exactly when the desire for personal playmates sprouted. Perhaps, that’s why my social skills were noticeably under-developed when it came to fitting in with ‘other than sibling’ cliques. I guess you’d call that shyness, huh? Needless to say, I was generally the least likely to be picked first in just…

HE REMEMBERS!

HE REMEMBERS2

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid, for YAH, the Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation. Therefore with joy you will draw water From the wells of salvation. Isaiah 12:2-3

Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me. Isa. 49:16

 

In light of  prevailing  gross darkness, devastation and desolation surrounding  our world today, it’s not uncommon that every now and then, even those of us who’ve been walkin’ with Jesus a long time,  may be tempted to conclude, ‘Why even bother to hope, after all what’s the point”?  #Don’tshoutmedown, nah! Nonetheless! Instead of giving in to to despair, I was incited to review the words of God’s Prophet, Isaiah, speaking to the remnant of God’s Chosen nation.

While 21st Centry millennials are quick to refute the antiquated teachings of times long past as irrelevant, TRUTHBTOLD, the more things change, the more they stay the same! In other words, “THERE’S REALLY NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN!”

Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come. 1 Corinthians 10:11

God’s people were facing eminent danger of massive destruction, yet we hear Isaiah offering a word of warning and a ray of hope that we’d do well to glean from today. 

The Prophet encourages them that no matter what’s happening around you, don’t be afraid, but keep trusting and praising our God!  Isaiah, knowing God inhabits the praises of His people, speaks to souls wearied by the consequences of unwise choices and those who are forced to endure circumstances which are beyond their ability to control, reminding them that their only hope of deliverance was to remain steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of their Lord! (Ref. 1 Corinthians 15:58)

REMEMBER! God is Holy, Righteous and Just! While He must punish the unjust, His Anger does not last forever! Unlike many of our earthly fathers, YAH is our Covenant-KEEPING God and remains a Faithful Father, The Saving Strength, Shield, Provider and Redeemer to all who call upon Him! From His own Mouth, Abba Father promises to wipe away the tears from their faces and keep you in perfect peace because we trust in Him! (Ref. Isaiah 25:8, 26:3-4)

#DIDJAHEARDAT?

Beloved, when life is out of your control, rest assured, THERE’S NOT ONE MOMENT WHEN GOD IS NOT!  Our Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent Creator and Sustain of All Live IS ALWAYS IN ABSOLUTE CONTROL!

The Eternal Word IS FOREVER SETTLED IN HEAVEN! Jesus Himself testifies that you are the apple of His eye and He has tatooed your name in the palm of His Hands forever. (Ref. Psalm 17:8; Isa. 49:16)

In the midst of these unsettling times of uncertainties,  there’s no denying the myriad of  available distractions designed to cause even the most seasoned of saints to question whether or not The Sovereign Creator and Sustainer of All Life is REALLY concerned about what’s going on down here amongst the gross darkness of  this lost, unfaithful and rebellious world! Nevertheless, I adjure you to keep your eyes on Jesus, The Joy of your Salvation and your feet steadfast on THE WORD!

 

Be confident of this very thing, HE THAT HAS BEGUN A GOOD WORK IN YOU IS FAITHFUL TO COMPLETE IT UNTIL THE DAY OF JESUS CHRIST! (Ref. Philippians 1:6)

Precious ones, when you can’t see no way, why not confuse hell and praiz JESUS ANYHOW! Don’tchakno? At the mere mentioning of THE NAME OF JESUS demons tremble and the Heaven’s Angelic host is put on alert!

Ooooh Yeah!  TRUST2KNO, The Great and Holy One of Israel is closer than ever before! Hence, don’t ever forget that YOUR GOD REMEMBERS!

So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good. 1 Peter 4:19

And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To Him be the power for ever and ever. Amen 1 Peter 5:10-11
‘He’s got the whole world, in His Hands! He’s got the whole wide world, in His Hands! He’s got the whole world, in His Hands! He got the whole world in His Hands!’

 

WOW! I’m good with that; for about the first 22 seconds of consciousness! Then I realize that I’m awake! Opening my eyes, immediately hell’s hounds pounce onto my thoughts filling them with the residue of yesterday’s drama, failures, guilt, shame; which gives way to loneliness, despair, taunting fears and ravaging accusations! Puff! There goes my  joy, hope and confidence.  Oh, don’t get your knickers twisted! I’m talking about me, yall!!!

Oh Yeah! It’s easy to quote the scriptures and sing the songs when life is beautiful, all is well, the air is filled with the sweetness of His Wonder Working Power. The problem is, life is not always bliss because we’re still living in a fallen world! I don’t care how long you’ve been walking in da way, trusting God in times of tests and tragedy is trying, huh?

One of the most difficult things I’ve ever been asked to do, is absolutely nothing! It’s kinda like asking your child to sit for five minutes without saying a single word? Obviously, stillness is not one of our more dominating genetic traits.

Particularly, when it comes to waiting on God’s answer in what we perceive as  ‘time-sensitive’ issues. Unfortunately, the art of stillness doesn’t always get better with age. Quiet as it’s kept, even the more seasoned of saints find ourselves boppin up and down in a faith dance every now and then. Oh, we start off fired-up, after all ‘We know God is able to do all things’. That is, until He doesn’t do what we’re expecting—when we expect it!

What happens after you’ve been faithful to follow (as best as you can) all that God has required of us, and yet find yourself backed up against a stonewall, surrounded by situations that are hell bent on taking you out? What can you do when the realities of your circumstances collide with His Promises and the suffering and the pain are screaming ‘this will never end’Apparently, the only thing God expects any of us to do is trust Him to be God!

Seriously? Absolutely! The same God who created the entire world, faithfully ordered, maintained and sustained everything since it’s beginning, is He not also capable of taking care of anything that’s happening in your lifeDuuhhhh! The last time you breathed, ought to tell you God’s Still Reigns, huh?

However, He’s such a gentle Savior! He never forces Himself into situations uninvited. However, the moment we let IT goreleasing and casting the care of the circumstances into His Almighty Hands, entrusting Him to make everything work together for our greatest good and His Highest Glory, His Incomprehensible Peace comes in; flooding our hearts, overwhelming the burdens of fear, doubt, anxiety and hopelessness!

As we acknowledge The Inseparable richness of His Lovingkindness and Compassion towards us, suddenly, His Amazing Grace begins to restore quiet rest and earnest expectations to our po-wearied soul!

BE still, and know that I AM GOD; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! Psalm 46:10

I know, feels strange, huh? I’m not saying it’s easy, but I’m a living witness,  IT IS POSSIBLE! Hey, don’t knock it until you try it!

QUESS WHAT? IF U NEED HELP, GOD has a way of forcing us to take a few days off, from running our world, huh?  #IJS !!!

SO #WHATRUSUPPOSED2DO? Pray and wait for God’s answer! HENCE, LET GOD BE GOD 2 & 4 U!

SELAH!

CHOSEN, CHASTENED, REDEEMED & RESTORED!

MORNING GLORAAA

 

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

 

Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen, that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he, before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

I, even I, am the LORD, and beside me there is no saviour.

I have declared, and have saved, and I shewed, when there was no strange god among you, therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God.

Yea, before the day was I AM HE, AND THERE IS NONE THAT CAN DELIVER OUT OF MY HAND, i WILL WORK AND WHO SHALL LET IT.

 

GOD had sent warning after warning hoping to persuade His Chosen people to repent and cry out to Him. Much like today, the people refused to obey His Righteous Decree and insisted on doing what seemed right in their own eyes, rejecting The Sovereign Lordship of the One who had called them out of obscurity and designated them to be His Own Possession and witnesses to the Nations of His Magnificent Glory!

The persistent disobedience and shameless dishonor of those whom The Creator and Sustainer had sanctified to Himself, provoked The Righteous Indignation of The Justifier to respond by releasing His Wrath upon them, driving them into a situation where they would recognize that their ONLY EFFECTIVE SAVIOR would be THE LORD HIMSELF! SOUND, UNCOMFORTABLY FAMILIAR? #ijs…

History reveals that ofttimes, Our Loving Father, refusing to allow anything or anyone to derail His Eternal Plan and Purpose for Humanity, will use adversity to goad His Beloved from rebellion, thru chastening wildernesses into submission!!

While God’s Righteous Judgement can not exempt us from enduring the discomforting conditions of tests, trials and tragedy, HE remains a Very Present Help! TRUST2KNO, even as we are challenged by the floods and fires of distress and disasters, God Promised, by His Unfailing Compassionate Loyalty and Committed Presence, that He will go with us, assuring that none of these things shall be able to consume us!

TRUTHBTOLD, we may claim to be sold out, however, not many of us will volunteer to suffer, except Jesus Christ! Nevertheless,  we must understand that GOD uses our suffering to get our attention and force us back onto the right track, where we turn from trusting in our own resources to living by faith in God’s resources! 

MY BROTHERS AND MY SISTERS, in this season of our lives, many hearts are perplexed with doubt and uncertainty and innumerable spirits are heavy-laden and burdened with fear, anxiety, grief and sorrow, yet in the midst of the shaking, our faith and trust must rest fixed and anchored in the ETERNAL HOPE that’s set before us in THE WORD OF GOD! 

While weeping may endure for a moment, at GOD’S APPOINTED TIME, this too shall pass! WE SHALL NOT DIE, BUT WE SHALL LIVE TO SEE THE SALVATION OF  Our LORD!

WE SHALL ENDURE THE CHASTENING; BE REDEEMED AND RESTORED! For who can stop HIS HAND FROM PERFORMING IT?

I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have Power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and high And deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that Surpasses knowledge — that you may be filled to the measure of All the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:17-19

 

There’s an ol’ song we used to sing, backndaday, that says, “I don’t know why Jesus loves me, I don’t know why He cares, I don’t know why He sacrificed His life, OOH but I’m glad, so glad He did!” Can I getta witness?

A lot of people have acknowledged, intellectually, the fact that God loves them. Unfortunately, THAT intellectual comprehension is  hardly ever incorporated into their individual everyday life!

Okay, so let’s go further. Because our knowledge of who we are and what we know about ourselves, we may find it extremely difficult, bordering on impossible, to process intellectually that a HOLY GOD could extend such unconditional affection towards something as flawed and fickled as humanity. Because God is Omniscient (all wisdom), to logically conclude that He loves us so deeply, makes no sense at all!

Could this be the reason so many intellectually astitute stumble and stagger at the premise that the Almighty God, Creator and Sustainer of everything cares so much for us that He was willing to sacrifice His Life for our life, just to restore an intimate fellowship with Him! Makes no sense, huh? That’s why we must come to Him in faith and not facts!

According to the Scriptures, not many wise, not many of the scholars, the elite of society would accept His offer of GRACE. (Ref. 1 Corinthians 1:26) However, given what I know about ME, I’d have to be a fool to refuse it! When I realized what was at stake, I had to jump quickly to grasp hold of so Great a Salvation, before He changed his mind! Ha! Ha! And I’m glad, so glad I did. Ain’t dat Amazing Grace?

Stop trying to figure it out and jus go for it! (Ref. Hebrew 11:6)

May the reality of God’s Rich Love fill your heart today! #Getit? IT’S BEYOND UNDERSTANDING!
