PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

GM Precious Children of The Most High God! GOTTA MOMENT? AWESOME!

We’re delighted that you’ve joined us, once again, in our Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Fasting and Prayer! Needless to say, there’s yet so much to seek The Face of God for, Amen? But Thanks Be To God, in the midst of soul-vexing times, we know Where to go and Who to call on to find Love, Peace, Hope and Rest for our weary souls! For we have a Heavenly FATHER Who CARES! Let’s enter into The Throne Room together…

 

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way, When sorrows like sea billows roll;Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, IT IS WELL, IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL! IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL, IT IS WELL, IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL…Bow down and worship Him! Worship Him! Oh, worship Him! Bow down and worship Him; Enter in! Oh, enter in! Consuming fire; Sweet perfume. His awesome presence fills this room! THIS IS HOLY GROUND! THIS IS HOLY GROUND! THIS IS HOLY GROUND! SO COME AND BOW DOWN …

 

Father of All Glory, Honor, Comfort, Strength, Wisdom and Joy, into thine Hands, we lift up our souls! For we know that You are LORD of Heaven and Earth! Besides Thee, there is none else to save, deliver and heal! We extol Your  HOLY Name above every other name that can be named! As You have decreed, we exalt Your Word, even above Your Name! Thank You for blessing us to enjoy one more day of Your Presence and Providential Care! Thank You for revealing to us such wondrous treasures that were hidden from our understanding, when we walked surrounded by darkness, as dead men in the earth without a God on our side! We bless You for we know that it’s IN YOU that we live, move and have our being! 

We come before You now, humbled by Your Loving-kindness, clothed in assurance that because of The Precious Blood that was shed on Calvary’s Cross, the Scepter is always extended towards Your Children, allowing us to come boldly before The Majestic Throne to find Hope and Help in the time of need, in the Name of JESUS!

Abba Father,  forgive our tendency towards willfully relinquishing our faith to do, think and speak those things that are not pleasing in Your sight! We’re eternally grateful that because of The Sacrificial Atoning Death and Resurrection of Jesus, Your Compassionate Faithfulness and Deep Love for us, allows You to look beyond our faults and failures, forgive us our sin, cleanse our hearts and hands in The Blood of Jesus, restoring our rightful fellowship and satisfy all our need, according to Your Riches in Glory!

Today,  we offer up glorious praise, from hearts open to, depending and relying only on You for renewed power, strength and understanding to apply Your statues to our lives that we may enjoy the abundant lives that You have predestined for us now and forever!

Lord Jesus, even as we find ourselves once again at Ground Zero, because YOU ARE LORDthere is never a space or time when YOU are not in absolute control of all things!  Therefore, we cling to this Affirmation admidst a negative world, Your WORD promised to keep us hidden under The BLOOD! Hence, just as You provided Light and Provision for Your people in Goshen, even in these days of imminent terror, tragedy, chaos and destruction, famine, wars and rumors of war, we know that the safest place in this whole world is in YOUR perfect Will!  We trust that no weapon that is formed against us shall prosper and every tongue that rises up against Your children, thou shall condemn!

Sweet Jesus, because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we interceded on behalf of every unsaved soul, asking You to quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance into their heart and in their mind that they will come to You today confessing with their mouths “a SINCERE Yes” to your Gift of Grace and receive You now as their personal Savior and Lord! We’re believing that You are directing their footsteps, placing and settling them into a local church home today where they will be nurtured and encouraged to live holy, acceptable and committed to faithful obedience to Your Word!

Precious Lord, we ask You reclaim every soul that has turned their back and walked away from Your Will! Plant a fresh “COMMITTED YES” in the soil of their hearts and minds! Make today the day that they come back to You and back to The Body of Christ where they will submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, learn to love and live their lives denying the lust of their flesh, walking daily to please and Glorify You to this lost, dark and dying world!

Abba Father, remember our brother, our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, touch them now from the crown of their heads to the sole of the feet; rebuke and cast  out  every spirit of infirmity  from the root, for Your Name Sake! Heavenly Father,  You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Even as You walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! Lord Jesus, Your Word declares that the stripes  You bore on Your own body 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! Amen 3x!

Lord, we lift up every believer who is struggling to hold on to Your Word of faith today, trusting that You to release Divine Power, Supernatural Hope, Strength, Health,  Wholeness, Provision, Prosperity and Protection. Father! We’re trusting You to preserve each and everyone of us thru the tests that we must go thru, keeping our minds constantly stayed on YOUR PRESENCE, fully-confident that at Your appointed time,You will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with every reward as You have promised in Your Word.

Sweet Jesus, while Your Word tells us that You’ve not given us the Spirit of Fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind, You knowing the frailness and fickleness of our flesh, know we’re proned to give into the piercing temptations of Satan’s thorns, leaving our hearts filled with anxiety, stress, disappointment, doubt, hopelessness, rejection and unbelief! But You’ve assured us that You have not left us comfortless, but You’ve sent Holy Spirit to abide IN us, empowering us to escape and overcome the plots of the wicked! For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but Mighty Thru God to pull down the strongholds, cast down perverted images and illicit seductions that entice us to leave the path of righteousness, turn back to and again enslave us in bondage to the will and ways of the Kingdom of Darkness!

It is with exceeding Joy, that we stand with boldness, in The Holy Ghost, anchored in Hope and Love, grounded in our right mind, clothed in the full armor of God, anointed and authorized to pull down every strong hold that the enemy shall attempt to take us captive to! By the Power invested in us, we bind the works of the enemy; we bind the works of the flesh, every Satanic  assigment, plan, plot, scheme and we REBUKE AND BIND every  ungodly spirit of poverty, lack, unholy desire and want! We CANCEL, REPEAL & REPLACE every curse that has been spoken against the children of God,  and RELEASE blessings and increase in every area of our lives, in The Name  LORD JESUS!

Father, as we lift up our children, our children’s children; by faith we cancel every con that Satan desires to inflict upon them, as we’re committing them into Your Providential Care and Protection, we release a Spirit of Truth, Discerment and Excellence upon their spirit, souls, minds and bodies! In Jesus Name, Amen 3x! We gratefully acknowledge that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too’ therefore, we have the Blessed Assurance that even when we can’t see them, their steps are being ordered by Your eyes!

Heavenly Father, as instructed, we lift up the government/legislative leaders of every nation of this world, judicial, corporate, education, financial, food service, public service and health care institutional leaders! We’re asking that You touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in dreams and visions letting them know that You Who Sit Sovereignly Enthroned Above the Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! We believe that because their hearts are in Your Hands, they are being continuously opened 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 because You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Minister, Missionary, Preacher, Teacher , Deacon, Musician, Praise Team, Choir, Auxiliary Leader and Administrator! 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 those who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and ministry,You have ordained. Grace them to be the holy humble examples in their homes, marketplace, communities and churches that will cause those who are in their sphere of influence to fall deeply in love with JESUS, and the people of God, fully committed to love, trust and live everyday of life serving and glorifying You, Our Heavenly Father!

Father,  release a downpour of Divine Favor upon every one of Your children who are challenged by seemingly time-sensitive situations such as sickness and disease, mental disorders, abuse, rejection, oppression, depression, marital relationships, unholy soul-ties, wayward children, loneliness, financial, employment and promotion issues, approvals of student/car/home loans!

Remember those who are striving to recover yet still reliving moments of grief because of the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on our nations! Let them know that when they struggle to bring clarity to confusion that Your Grace is Sufficient, Your Peace is Unsearchable and Your Power is Unfailing! Remember the people of The Behamas as they are yet going thru indscribably horrific conditions. Let them know that they’re not forgotten nor forsaken. Comfort Ye their po’ souls. Send revival, renewal and restoration NOW, IN JESUS NAME!

Lord Jesus, as Your children await Your Salvation in confident quietnesswe rejoice in exuberant hope, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling, suddenly departing in shameful defeat, recognizing 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!

Abba Father, as we align our spirits, soul and body with Your Eternal Word, we shout with joy unto The One to Whom all men will come! We bow in obedient reverence before The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us that, You are making Your ways and salvation known among all nations for You Guide and Rule justly! Father, believing that IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus we offer up this prayer! Alleleujah! Amen 3X!

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL EVERYBODY THAT JESUS LOVES  and CARES 4 YOU, YOU & YOU! #FRONTLINEMINISTRY

WHAT DOES GOD EXPECT?

MORNING GLORAAA

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

 

For this commandment which I command you today is not too mysterious for you, nor is it far off…

But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it.”

See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, 16 in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess. 17 But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear, and are drawn away, and worship other gods and serve them, 18 I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to go in and possess.

19 I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; 20 that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.” Deuteronomy 30:11, 14-20

#Didjaheardat?

 

Beloved, Be It Further Resolved that TODAY, The Eternal God has summoned Heaven and Earth to witness His Appeal to you to choose a LIFE of blessed belief, hope-filled trust and obedient loyalty to THE WORDS THAT ARE COMING OUT OF HIS MOUTH, that you and your decendants might live and enjoy ETERNAL LIFE!

HOWEVRRRR, AT THE END OF THE DAY…IT’S STILL UR CHOICE, right?

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

 

For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life, Weeping may endure for a night, BUT joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5

O, love the LORD, all you His saints! For the LORD preserves the faithful. And fully repays the proud person. Be of good courage. And He shall strengten your heart, All you who hope in the LORD. PSALM 31:23-24

If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who He is!  2 Timothy 2:13

TRUTHBTOLD, PAIN AND SUFFERING IS A PART OF THI# LIFE! However, those of us who have placed our personal faith in The loyalty of our Heavenly Father’s Love and commitment to preserve us thru times of hardship always have a reason to hope and trust that precariousness of these temporary times of adversity fail in comparison to the CERTAINTY of The God of Heaven’s deliverance!

Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth! For I Am GOD, and there is no other! I have sworn by MYSELF; the Word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, And shall not return… Isaiah 45:22-23

#Didjaheardat? #WOW!!! GOD’S LOVE REMAINS FAITHFUL 2 HIS WORD, EVEN WHEN WE’RE NOT!

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Good Morning Fam! GOTTA MOMENT! GREAT GOD ALMIGHTY!

Once again, we’re delighted that you’ve joined us in our Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting!

 

Bread of life? Sent down from glory! Many things you were on earth. A holy king, a carpenter? But you are the living Word! Awesome ruler, gentle redeemer! God with us, the living truth. And what a friend we have in you! You are the living Word… Bread of Heaven, feed me ’til I want no more! Here’s my cup, I lift it up! Come and quench the thirsting of my soul…Come and make me whole!

 

Our Father and our God of Heaven and Earth! We come today, lifting up The Name of Jesus! Lord, we bless and honor You for The Sacrificial Blood that You so freely shed in our stead, which now allows us to come boldly into The Holy Presence of The Creator and Sustainer of all Life! As we come lifting up holy hands and hope-filled hearts, praising and rejoicing in The Wonder of Your Glorious Presence, we thank You for so graciously awakening us to one more new day that You have made! We bless Your Name for life, health and strength! We thank You for a right mind, acknowledging that if it had not been for You keeping us even while we slept and slumbered in the night, our enemies would’ve destroyed us!

 

We know that nothing we’ve done or could do that was deserving of such Lovingkindness, but because of You are a Merciful Loyal Father, You continue to look beyond our faults and faithfully minister to each and everyone of our needs! For this cause we bow in reverence of Your Awesomeness, praying that as You search our hearts and find anything that’s not pleasing in Your sight, please forgive us and take it out, and take it out by the root! Help us Holy Spirit to shew evil and to cling to righteousness that we might cause someone to see Jesus and inquire of Thee, “What must I do to be saved!

 

Knowing that it’s not Your Will that any man should perish, but that we’d all come to a Saving Knowledge of Jesus Christ and because no man can come to The Father, except You draw them, we ask that You remember the lost souls today! Touch their stony hearts and transform it into hearts of flesh. Open the eyes of their understanding so that they will welcome a personal encounter with The Only Wise Savior who You sent to forgive and restore all those unregenerated souls who have been ensnared by the sin nature! Even as You did for us, snatch them out of Satan’s grip of deceit and let them see Your Glory in The Face of Jesus beckoning them to confess a “submitted SINCERE YES” to Your Will and Your Ways for humanity is Life Eternal in Your Presence!

Father, remember the backsliders who have allowed the lusts of this ungodly world to lure them back into those things which You delivered them from. Arrest them in The Holy Ghost and prick their hearts with a Spirit of Godly-Repentance that provokes their rebellious hearts to surrender confessing a “COMMITTED YES”, regretting ever having turned their backs from The Grace that they once enjoyed and come running back to The Safety of The Ark. Order their steps to the local church where they will be welcomed, loved, nurtured, encouraged and strengthen in Your Word empowering them to be witnesses of Light in the midst of this dark and untoward generation!

 

Holy Father, we ask that You remember Your Saints as we struggled to hold on to Your Promises amidst the chaos, turmoil emanating from a people of unclean lips! Help us to remember that nothing happens except You allow it. Breath afresh The Wind of Your Glory into the spirits and souls of Your Elect that may have become wearied and wounded by the cares of this world. We are grateful that nothing is hidden from Your view, for You are Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent! We’re blessed that as Your Compassion draws nigh to those who are lonely, Your Strength is made perfect in our weakness, and Your Blood runs swiftly to the place where we hurt the most!

 

Father, help us to remember Your Covenant Keeping Power when we grow weary in well-doing! Lift up every bowed down head today! Restore the Joy of Thy Salvation! Strengthen the feeble knees and send sweet Peace to those who are yet praying for the lost, heal and restore peace into trouble homes, the marriages that are under fire, wayward disobedient children, those struggling with their finances, those who are being mistreated on their jobs, those who are tempted to give up and throw in the towel, those whose flesh is enduring the pressure of temptations to commit fornication and adultery, comfort those who are mourning the loss of loved ones, bless the precious babies in daycare, at babysitters, daycare providers and schools! Encourage the caregivers, those who are tormented by unprovoked threats, depression, physical, sexual, emotional and spiritual abuse! Those who are experiencing rejections, abandonment, addictions, insecurities and grief! Console the widows, those forgotten and downcast who have born the heat of the day to push and pray us through! Lord, give them sweet Peace knowing that their labor is never in vain!

Lord, encourage all of us who find it difficult to pray for those in authority but yet have a desire to deal righteously with the injustices of a world filled with institutionalized racial discrimination, corruption,deceithfulness, arrogance, entitlement, nasty attitudes, greed, rage and hatred that’s intentionally inflicted upon those who are not like them and especially those of us who name the Name of Christ!

Abba Father, even as we’re praying, we’re believing You to intervene on our behalf, releasing miraculous Favor and Prosperity, unexpected promotions, opening up opportunities for entrepreneurship, increased education grants, lower interest mortgage rates, debt cancellations, book contracts and overturning legal decisions to give us the victory! Father, keep us in Your Will that we might be examples to those who are looking for Hope amidst the darkness of this hopeless, uncaring world!

Father, because You’ve sworn to be Faithful to generations of those who’ve placed our personal faith and trust in You, we’re lifting up our children, our grands and great-grand children and by faith we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives and cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we realize that You also have a plan and purpose for their lives! Therefore, we have the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are being ordered by Your eyes and no weapon that’s formed against them shall prosper and every tongue that speaks against them is already condemned! We speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds and bodies. releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!


Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher, Missionary, Deacon, auxiliary leader/member, choir director/member, praise team and musician, usher, nurse, driver, parking attendant and custodial worker! 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 those who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and ministry,You have ordained!

Sweet Jesus, according to Your WORD, we pray for the leaders of our nation, government, corporate, judicial, military, education, financial institutions, healthcare services and public service workers! Touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in dreams and visions to convict them that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! Because their hearts are in Your Hands, we’re trusting that they are being continuously opened 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!

Gracious Father, touch our brother and sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of physical and mental sickness and disease! Rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake!

Heavenly Father, You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Even as You walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! Lord Jesus, Your Word declares 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!

Sweet Holy Spirit, because of Your Divine Intervention in our lives and thru The Blood of Jesus we have become Curse-Breakers and Blessing Carriers! Therefore, by The Power invested in us, we rebuke every curse that has been assigned to our families, friends, relationships, bodies, homes, communities and our nations! Look on us now and uphold us with Your Free Spirit. Fill our hearts with Confident Hope-filled Assurance that while weeping may endure for a night, at Your Appointed Time we will be delivered and The Peace of God that passes all understanding shall be restored! We thank You Holy Spirit for directing our hearts into God’s Love and Christ’s Perseverance!

Lord Jesus, as we await Your Salvation, in confidence and quietness, we shall continuously rejoice in hope, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling, suddenly departing in shameful defeat, recognizing 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!

Abba Father, we align our spirits, soul and body with Your Eternal Word! Because You have chosen to bring  us near to dwell safety and secure in House, we shout with joy and bow in obedient reverence before The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us that, You are making Your Ways and Salvation known among all nations as You Guide and Rule justly! Father, believing that because You always hear our prayers, IT IS DONE, In The Exalted Name of Jesus we offer up this prayer with a Holy Alleleujah! Amen 3X!

Beloved, every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LIVES, LOVES AND CARES 4 U 2!

SELAH!

SLAVE 2 FREEDOM!

MORNING GLORAAA

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

 

So since we’re out from under the old tyranny, does that mean we can live any old way we want? Since we’re free in the freedom of God, can we do anything that comes to mind? Hardly. You know well enough from your own experience that there are some acts of so-called freedom that destroy freedom. Offer yourselves to sin, for instance, and it’s your last free act. But offer yourselves to the ways of God and the freedom never quits. All your lives you’ve let sin tell you what to do. But thank God you’ve started listening to a new master, one whose commands set you free to live openly in his freedom! Romans 6:15-18

#Didjaheardat? The ONE 2 whom you surrender the totality of your being to automatically becomes UR Sovereign Lord and Master! Don’t give sin a vote! Remember, there’s a high price 2 pay 4 low living!

 

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:36 KJV

WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?

WHO LET THE DOGS OUT

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

There are many wayward people, smooth talkers, and deceivers—especially the converts from Judaism. They must be silenced because they are disrupting entire families with their corrupt teachings, all for their dishonest greed. A certain one of them, one of their own prophets, said, “Those Cretans are nothing but liars, worthless beasts, and lazy gluttons.” He certainly knew what he was talking about! For this reason, correct them thoroughly so that their lives will line up with the truths of our faith. instruct them not to pay any attention to Jewish myths or follow the teachings of those who reject the truth,  It’s true that all is pure to those who have pure hearts, but to the corrupt unbelievers nothing is pure. Their minds and consciences are defiled.  They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are disgusting, disobedient, and disqualified from doing anything good. Titus 1:10-16 TPT

 

 

Mama told me there’d be days like this! BUT, C’mon nah! Who ever thought that progress would be interpreted as truth being despised and irrelevant, deceitfulness, pride, arrogance and greed is extolled while integrity is detested, trust is impaired according to the circumstances of any given moment and hope is deferred as justice bows to social elitism, racial prejudice and party preference! AND ALL THIS IS MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN? #Don’tshoutmedown, nah? A matter of perspective, huh?

TRUTHBTOLD, The Holy Scriptures are being unfolded, live and in living color, right before the eyes of the discerning who yet ascribe to the concept of Biblical Absolutes! Shocking, right? The lawlessness, chaos, confusion, uncertainties, frustration caused by the desolation of moral codes is the inevitable response when the righteous commands are resisted by the rebelliousness of a culture determined to evict the Sovereignty of the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY favoring to do what’s right in their own eyes!

BUT can somebody say, “THANKSB2GOD!” Knowing everything that could, should and would transpire before the foundation of the world, GOD, has made provision through HIS ETERNAL WORD to fulfill HIS DIVINE Plan and Purpose for His most precious of creation’s restoration and reconciliation! Rest assured Beloved, nothing has, can or ever will happen in the earth (and your life) that takes God by surprise! When it seems as if everything is fallen to the dogs and hell is winning, remember, KING JESUS IS STILL ON THE THRONE, REIGNING & RULING OVER THE AFFAIRS OF MANKIND!

And while the rage of the dogs’ barking seems to be drowning out The Voice of Holy Spirit, don’t get it twisted! God’s got them on a lease! Beloved, although we’re living in a season of spiritual darkness, we don’t faint in fear but we boldly walk by faith in the Light of HIS ETERNAL WORD! In the midst of spiritual famine, we remain undaunted, steadfast, courageous, focusing and trusting JESUS, The Author and Finisher of our our Faith.

Your Heavenly Father promised, “ I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU! (Ref. Heb. 13:5) At God’s appointed time The Glory of God SHALL ARISE,  bringing about a Divine Reversal! The first shall be last and the last shall be first! (Mark 10:31)

Blessed is the one who has made the Lord, his trust! Psalm 40:4

GOD MAKES EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL, IN HIS OWN TIME! STAND STILL & SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD! TRUST2KNO, Destiny’s calling 2 shut the dogs mouths!

THE PATH 2 GLORRAAA!

THE PATH 2 GLORY

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 
James 4:7

 
Yep! Ain’t no getting around it, because it’s still The Eternal Word of God, huh? I’m talking about that pesty-provoking-pressure-on-our-pleasure, five letter word “pride”! As the ol’ skool preacher would say, ‘I jus lost ¾ of my church’! LOL!

Those of us who’ve been saved more than 25 years undoubtedly have seen subtle (and not so subtle) transitions taking place in the Christian Community!  I’m referring to the greater emphasis being levied on the side of accumulating creature comforts rather than developing Christian character#Don’tshoutmedownnah!

While, there’s no denying that our Heavenly Father delights in the prosperity of His children, He distinctly distinguishes His Prosperity Plan from the system of this world, by including ‘even as your soul prospers, huh? (Ref. 3 John 1:2)

Of course, we know that God’s Ways are not ours and we’re eternally grateful that His thoughts are not like our, huh? Yet, many a wandering wayfaring person has been drawn down to the altar, enticed by the lure of a prolific prophetic preacher, promising peace and prosperity. Although this message has elements of doctrinal truth, upon closer examination,  oftimes it can dilute the integrity of basic biblical foundation! Hence, leaving some believers with lop-side expectations and ill-prepared to walk out their journey of faith.

The New Millennium Church has adapted to The Burger King mentality that says, ‘If I can’t have it my way, then I’ll hit the highway’! While that attitude may work at a fast-food chain, it won’t get you off the run-way in the Kingdom of God. The last time I caught a breath, Jesus was still LORD! Therefore, He has the right to expect loyalty, faithfulness, commitment and obedience from those He created!

God knows that it’s difficult for flesh to be humble! That’s why HE put these flesh-killing scriptures in The Book! Yall know, flesh wants to set up its own kingdoms and not submit to anything or anyone. Flesh wants to dominate; to be in charge; have its own way; be right; be the best and not ever admit that ‘I’m wrong, not perfect, it’s my fault; I need help, forgiveness…or I don’t know what to do!

Flesh wants folk to come to us; look up to us; be admired and yes even envied! Flesh wants to be first in line following the Apostle, Bishop and the Pastors. Flesh wants to sit on the front row so it can be noticed—to go higher, IN THE LORD, of course!

We like to quote the scripture, ‘resist the devil and he’ll flee from you’, right? However, more often than not, we leave out the first part, ‘submit yourself to GOD...and then you’ll have the power to resist the devil’! OMG, does it really say dat? Indeed! In the Kingdom, the way up is down!

God says, ‘humble yourself’BUT–IF YOU CAN’T, HE WILL HELP YOU! Chances are He’ll raise up a devil, a situation, a problem, a need, a national threat, a global economic collapse! Sometimes, He’ll allow trouble to come knocking at your front door, your church, job, wallet to get your attention long enough for you to humble yourself and have to pray! God knows that as long as we’re living high-on-the-hogwe’re prone to spiritual amnesia and assume that He’s okay playing second fiddle! NOT!

The Kingdom of Heaven has it’s own stimulus plan and it ain’t about to change! The strength and power of God’s Covenant relationship with His people is based on both  parties involved doing what they’ve sworn to do. The position of GOD is permanently filling space and time! Remember, HE IS GOD & U R NOT!

It’s a highway to Heaven, however you’ve got to be willing to take the low road 2 get there! As we yield our ENTIRE lives to GOD’ S WILL, WE SHALL REAP THE KING’S ETERNAL REWARDS! #FAITHFUL OBEDIENT GRATITUDE  #DIDJAHEARDAT? YEP! THAT’S THE PATH TO GLORAAAA!

YOU’RE ALTOGETHER LOVELY, ALTOGETHER WORTHY, ALTOGETER WONDERFUL!

Father in Heaven, here we are before You once again. We come today with outstretched arms, open hands and grateful hearts, for this is the day that You have made. Therefore we’re rejoicing in The Splendor of Your Magnificent Glory! We know that it’s only because of Your Grace and Mercy, that we’re yet here! It’z because of Your love for us, You have allowed us more more day to enjoy the abundance of Your life, health and strength. We’re thankful for another opportunity to present ourselves as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable unto You. From our Mother’s womb, You’ve proven Yourself to be Faithful and True; therefore, in this midst of the chaos, confusion and uncertainties of the systems of this ungodly world, 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!

Father, with eternal gratitude we bless You for allowing us to enter into Your Throne Room, with hope-filled expectation that You will entreat us graciously as we pour out the burdens that seem to overwhelm our hearts, releasing everything that concerns us to You! Lord Jesus, because we know that You are Omniscient, Omnipresent and Omnipotent, You see and You already know everything about everyone of us, yet You have welcomed us to come boldly before You, to find Grace and Mercy to comfort, strengthen and encourage us to hold on to every Word that You have spoken over our lives, before we were born.

Daddy, as we stand humbly before Your Sovereignty, before we go any further, we’re asking You to forgive us for everything that we, Your children, have spoken, done and even thought that was not pleasing in Your sight. We thank You now because You have assured us that if we would confess our sins, You, Heavenly Father, being Faithful and Just, will 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! Now, we ask Holy Spirit to intercede on our behalf, our family, our friends, even our enemies, as we know that Your love is the same for each and everyone of us!

Abba, we know that You have instructed us, to look not at the temporary things, but to the eternal, yet You know the frailness of our flesh, and how easily we’re provoked and tempted to become overwhelmed by the cares of this world, that our hearts are burdened with the pressures of this life, that some of us are wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness and disease, financial debt, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions and secret insecurities. Lord, You know that sometimes we lose our focus on You causing our days to be spent beneath clouds of evil foreboding, while our nites are plagued with restlessness, despondency and hopelessness! Lord, keep us in Your Will, as only You can!

Lord, save, heal and deliver speedily by Your Mighty Hand, all those 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, and shield us from anything that the devil would assail against us. Help us to understand that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower, and those that You have declared the righteous run into it and are saved. Open up our minds and our hearts, filling us with Your Assurance, and confidence that inspite of the struggle, at The Name of Jesus, every knee must bow and every tongue confess that You are Lord! Grace your children with hope-filled trust that You, Father, have committed Your Word towards us that no weapon that’s formed us shall ever prosper and except You allow it, no trouble, test or trial can come near us. We thank you Lord, for fully persuading us of Providential Presence and Power to turn everything around to work in our favor and to bring about exuberant testimonies and praizes of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory!

Father, we thank You for listening to the hearts of everyone reading and praying with us. We thank You for hearing the hearts of those who have never trusted and accepted Your Son Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord! Because it’s not Your Will that any should perish, we are believing that Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart now with Godly–repentance  that they shall come to You humbled by Your Lovingkindness, in obedience to Your call and are now receiving your Mercy and Grace to Save. We pray now that You are leading and guiding them to the local church, planting them in Your Vineyard, where they shall be taught and transformed by Your Word of Life to take their rightful position in The Kingdom of Heaven as sons and daughters of The God of The Universe!

We lift up every backslidder who has turned away from wholly following after Your Righteous Commands! We ask that You provoke them to repent quickly and come running back to Your open arms with a fresh conviction to live the rest of their lives by The Grace and Mercy of God, faithful and obedient to convict the loss to surrender their lives to The True and Living God Who forgives sin and is able to guarantee Eternal Life!

Father, we pray for those who are distraught by grief and fear, the elderly, the widows, the downcast who have borne the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through! Father, give them sweet peace in knowing that their labor shall never be in vain! And while family members may forget You never will!

Precious Jesus, we lift up our children, grands and great-grands, thanking You for covering them in Your Blood! We bind the spirit of deception that would entice them to delve into those things that You have forbidden! We rebuke the spirit of bullying, oppression, addictions, ungodly soul ties, suicide, perversions, lust and cancel every wicked plot and evil scheme that Satan attempts to ensnare the holy legacy that You are raising up to overturn the Kingdom of Darkness, in Jesus Name! We release a Spirit of Excellency upon each and everyone of our children that they shall not die but live to declare The Glorious Name of Jesus, demonstrating Your Power thru greater works as You have predestined for them to walk in! In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Sweet Jesus, lifting up every spiritual leader, we ask that You encourage and strengthen all the Apostles, Bishops, Preachers, Evangelist, Teachers, Missionaries, ushers, nurses, parking lot attendants, Trustee and Board Members, auxiliary leaders and members, Musicians, choir members, Liturgical dancers!

Remember especially the True Shepherds who are yet standing on the wall, proclaiming Your Unadulterated Word under the Convicting Power and Anointing of Holy Spirit! We’re believing for the immediate manifestation of that special miraculous desire that You have placed in their hearts! Jesus, we’re trusting You to Grace them to be the examples of Your Righteousness in their homes, churches, market place 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! Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people and those who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and the ministry You have ordained!

Lord, while it may seem futile at times, because You have instructed, we pray for the leaders of governments world-wide. Recognizing their hearts are in Your Hands, we ask You to visit them in the night season, instill a godly-terror and respect in them and command them to do Your Will. Make them aware of The Law of Retribution is in effect, therefore, 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.

Abba Father, because so many of our family and friends are being afflicted by all manner of sicknesses and diseases, we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister, bind, rebuke and cast out every dis-ease at the root, for Your Name Sake! Heavenly Father, You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Even as You walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! Lord Jesus, Your Word declares that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on Your promises that nothing is too hard for You and that the Prayer of Faith STILL saves the sick and raises them up, In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Lord, we pray for every believer who is yet holding onto Your Hand by faith today, that You are releasing Divine Power, Supernatural Faith, Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity, Protection, Wisdom and Peace. Father, we’re trusting that You shall preserve them thru every season of tests and trials You have allowed, keep them constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that at Your appointed time,You will bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word!

Father, we thank You for an outpouring of Your Divine Favor upon each and every one of your children who are seeking employment, promotion, prompt approval for student/car/home loans and assure them that YOU are Jehovah Jareh, Who shall supply all of their need according to Your Riches in Glory!

Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of fear, jealousy, envy, condemnation, covetousness and arrogance is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness and Purpose is being released in the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

Lord, there are so many other things, that we have yet to mention, but we’re trusting, believing You to fix it, Jesus, as only You can! Lord, we know that You are not just able, but willing to do anything that we ask, in accordance to Your Word, in Jesus Name! We thank you Father that as we walk through this day, depending on You for abundant Life, Peace, Hope and Your Joy to strengthen us for whatever lies ahead, we shall give You all the Praise!

As we offer us this prayer, Father we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling at Your Name, departing suddenly in shameful defeat, cowardly running away from Your people, because 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 NOW, for WE believe 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, LIVED, DIED, ROSE AGAIN, LOVES AND CARES 4 EVERYBODY!

SELAH!

For we recognize that it was not because of any goodness of our own that we live, move and have our being! We quickly thank You, Father for another opportunity to embrace and enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace that comes from hearts wholly leaning and trusting solely upon Your All Sustaining Sufficiency!

Heavenly Father, it is with unspeakable joy that we offer up praises unto You for being The ONLY True, Living Eternal God of our Salvation, our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision.With heartfelt humility and sincere gratitude, we acknowledge that Grace, Compassion and Faithfulness that allows You, knowing our frame, YET You look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities and minister so graciously to every need pertaining to life and godliness!

In Jesus Name Amen 3x!

Lord Jesus, we’re eternally grateful for the indwelling Presence of Holy Spirit assuring us that YOU ARE THE SOVEREIGN LORD, therefore always in absolute control of all things. In light of the continuous influx of profound arrogance and illegal injustices being perpetrated again Your people from ‘the Satanic influenced powers that be’, the atrocious senseless murders taking place all around us, in the midst of sadden hearts and wearied spirits we shall never fail to express our gratitude because You have promised to yet keep us hidden under The BLOOD just as You provided Light and Provision for Your people in Goshen! We praise You, Heavenly Father, that even in these days of imminent terror, tragedy, chaos and destruction, we know that the safest place in this whole world is in YOUR perfect Will! Therefore, we trust that no weapon that is formed against us shall prosper and every tongue that rises up again your children shall be condemned!

As we wait for You to move on our behalf, help us not to become lethargic and disenfranchised, refusing to do those things we’re called to do in our communities to honor the privileges that so many others before us struggled, fought even died so that we would have the right to vote and that our children would be able to live a better life than they did! Help us to be accountable in our communities, Churches, on our jobs, in our homes. Help those who carry Your word to walk upright standing for right in this contrary world!

Father, we pray for the release of unexpected Favor of God; new jobs, promotions, opening new doors of opportunities for entrepreneurs, debt cancellations, loan approvals, unexpected financial blessings! YOU are OUR Jehovah Jareh, who shall supply all of OUR need according to Your Riches in Glory! We declare and decree that You are releasing a Double Portion of Your Anointing, Spirit of Love, Power, Sound-mindness and Purpose into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

Lord Jesus, we await Your Salvation, in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling, suddenly departing in shameful defeat, recognizing 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!

A NEW DAY!

A NEW DAY

SELAH Daily Devotions!

Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth, Shall ye not know it?   I will even make a way in the wilderness, And rivers in the desert?  Isaiah 43:19

Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 4:6

 
 

I still remember when I would actually curse the breaking forth of the morning. For me, it only meant another day filled with excruciating physical pain, sadness, discouragement and disappointment–just like all the others.

Looking back, it’s doesnt take a lotta stretching of the imagination to figure out who had secretly planted those deceitful diabolical thoughts into my mind, okay?  But that was B.C. (Before Christ came into my life)!!!!  But by The Grace of God, today I stand as a living testimony to reality of The New-Life-Giving Power of God! (2 Corinthians 5:17)
 
Yessirreee Bob, this ol’ gurl’s gotta  new attitude!  Coming from an extremely negative environment, I thought that this was just the way of the world. However, once I accepted Jesus into my life, I learned that God’s Salvation’s Benefit Package included a completely different attitude, faith!  Yeah Baby, this new faith attitude is the heritage of the saints, the children of God! 
 
Once you recognize that you’re really in a personal relationship with the True and Living God, it’s actually possible for you to embrace each day with  joy, hopeful anticipation and confident assurance that this is a great day because God made it! Seriously,  it’s a new day! #WHOKNU?
 
Before you open up your eyes or your feet hit the floor, you have the power to dictate your day.  You can say,‘Good Lord, it’s morning already!’ or ‘Good Morning, Lord’. You choose whether to approach your day with joyful celebration and gratitude for  another opportunity to behold The Beauty of The Lord, experience God’s Glory, Grace and Praise for what He’s already done, is doing now and for what He is about to do or you can claim fear, discouragement and defeat by murmuring and complaining!
 
Don’t get it twisted! Even as a disciple of Christ, everyday is not the same! Howevrrrr,  each day you’re becoming new as you grow in the Wisdom, Knowledge and the Grace of God! That’s right Saints, the new you makes the decision to enjoy this wonderful gift of present by refusing to allow past sins, past failures, past wounds and past disappointments, to keep you from moving forward into this brand new day! Didjaheardat?
 
The Ol’ Saints used to sing, ‘Everyday with Jesus is sweeter than the day before!”  Sometimes, we think that’s because things were a whole lot different, as my Granddaughter Sadie says , ‘Bacndaday’! Don’t fool yourself, they lived through some very distressing times. Remember, The Great Depression!  Yet, amidst their adversity, they remained convinced that God was well able to keep them thru and to bring them out of anything that would unfold during a day!
 
When Jesus is your Shepherd, it doesn’t matter what happened yesterday.  God empowers each new day with new mercy, new grace and new faith to believe that today is the first day of the best of my life…because today is MY new day !

Soooooo, I decree and declare that Today, I have the mind of Christ! I believe that God is making a way out of no way, for ME! Today, I believe that God is up to something that He’s never done before. Today, I fully expect to be strengthened, delivered and re-joyed! Today is another chance for me to do better and become more because today is another opportunity to get closer to Jesus!

Now if that doesn’t jumpstart your day, you better check your vitals and make sure you’re still living! OOOHHH GLORRRAAAAA!

HEY YALL, TRUST2KNO…LIFE GOES BETTER WITH CHRIST! O HAPPY EVERYDAY!  IT’S A NEW DAY!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
