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, Joy, 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…WITH MY HANDS LIFTED UP, AND MY MOUTH FILLED WITH PRAISE!! WITH A HEART OF THANKSGIVING, I WILL BLESS THEE OOOHH LORD….

 

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 NOW 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, because YOU ARE LORDthere is never a space or time when YOU are not in absolute contr ol of all things! 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 FREE 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 a holy, acceptable and committed life, faithfully, sacrificially and  obedient to Your Eternal Word!

Precious Lord, we ask You to reclaim every soul that has turned their back and walked away from Your Will! Plant a new “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 FULLY 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, we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake! Heavenly Father,  we know that 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 byYour stripes we have been redeemed and healed 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!

Precious Lord, we lift up every believer who is struggling to hold on to Your Word of faith today, trusting  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 from the inside out and with every reward Promised in Your Immutable 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 flawed 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, self-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 plan, plot, scheme and we REBUKE  every satanic-induced plan, ungodly spirits 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 scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them, as we’re committing them into Your Providential Care and Protection, we release a Spirit of Truth 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 fear, 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 and Teacher, musician, choir director/member, auxiliary leader/member and laymember! 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, we’re trusting You to release a downpour of Divine Strength and 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!

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

GOD WILL COME THRU FOR YOU!

GOD WILL COME THRU

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

And the redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord. Isaiah 59:20 KJV

Since God assured us, “I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you,” we can boldly quote, “God is there, ready to help, I’m fearless no matter what. Who or what can get to me?” Hebrews 13:6 The Message

 

Ever heard them ol’ skool Mothers say, “God’s never late and hardly ever early”? Well, if that’s supposed to make waiting easier, let me assure you, it doesn’t! What about, “A delay is not a denial and a failure is not final”. Granted, these proverbial acclaimations may work in a 11 a.m. Sunday Morning Service, with the musicians crankin’, the praise team rockin’ it and the saints shoutin’But! What about when you leave the sanctuary and get home alone, again; and the evil one starts bringing up all the reasons why you ain’t  gonna make it through this time! And what if the test results confirm _____; and what if you don’t get accepted; and what if  she did have an affair; whatcha gonna do if He does want a divorce? Hence, ‘Hey you, where’s your GOD NOW!’

The ol’ saints used to sing, “He Delivers, Praise the Lord, He Delivers, Praise the Lord, I was bound by the power of the devil, but HE delivered, Praise the Lord”! Well, let me tell you why they were able to sing those kinda songs. They didn’t have a lot of money at their disposal, so if they got sick they couldn’t afford a doctor. If they had more mouths than food they couldn’t just whip out their credit card at the grocery store. When their car broke down, they couldn’t take it to Mr. Bill’s Auto Shop. And if John Edward got locked up, they couldn’t afford no bail or private attorney!  But, they had a God to pray to! And you know what? They found Him to be an ‘ON TIME GOD!’

Having no other recourse, but to wait on da Lawdd, they resigned themselves to stand planted on The Rock of Ages, not wishin’ and a hopin’; but trusting in the Strength of God’s Love despite what it looked like!

Needless to say, this kind of faith is hard to find in this “busy-booming-High-Tech-don’t need nobody-DIY” generation. After all we have so many other options. Why pray and have to wait on GOD? 

Because He is God and we are not! God has deliberately designated each step and stop necessary to cultivate our realization that we are His Creation; created to fulfill His purpose and without Him we can do absolutely nothing(Ref. John 15:5) But through His Guidance and Power, all things are possible! (Ref. Philippians 4:13)

Yes, we all experience times when it jus feels like God has turned His Face and given our enemy the nod to ‘walk right over our head’. Except, considering the ambiguity of our emotions, is it really wise to rely upon such in the crucial moments of a time-sensitive-crisis? Exactly? Bible-Faith is based on solely upon The Sure Foundation; The Word of God!

God knows sometimes our flesh becomes weary! That’s why He dispatched Holy Spirit to hover close while we’re waiting for Him to move! (Ref. Isaiah 40:31) The reason God is never in a hurry is because He knows just what it takes to perfect His Will and His Glory in your life. He swore by GOD-SELF to never abandon or give up on you! (Ref. Deut. 31:8) So, why would you ever give up on Him? Am I right, about it? #ijs

Stop trying to figure everything out. Keep trusting and keep expecting your deliverance at any moment! Trust and know that ain’t no mountain high enough, ain’t no valley low enough; Ain’t no river wide enough, TO KEEP GOD FROM GETTING 2 U! 

REMEMBER DAT! HE WILL ALWAYS COME THROUGH 4 YOU!

Amen? Let’s pray?

AS WE’RE PRAYING, WE’RE BELIEVING & DECREEING…

Heavenly Father, we come before You today, in the Magnificent, All Powerful Name of ourLord and Savior Jesus, rejoicing, praising and thanking You for blessing us to see a brand new day. We thank You, Father for one more opportunity to embrace and enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace!

Abba Father, we thank You for being The True and Living God of our Salvation, our Deliverance, Breakthrough, Protection and Provision. We’re thankful that because You know our frame, Your faithfulness and compassion yet allows You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to forgive us, cover us in Your Blood, cleanse us from our unrighteousness and minister to all of our need!

Receive our praises to You today, flowing out of  hearts that are open to you, depending and relying solely upon You. We praise You Lord, for You alone are the Source of renewed strength, understanding and power! We honor You LORD Jesus, because no man can come to the Father except You draw them. Therefore, acknowleging that You Love everybody and are no respecter of persons, Father we ask that as Your eyes continue to search the hearts of humanity, that You draw and save the lost, reclaim every back-slider and direct their footsteps to the place that You have ordained, settling them into a church home today where they will be accepted, loved, nurtured and taught The Way of Holy Righteousness.

Father, as we intercede on behalf of every one who has yet to receive Your Saving Grace, please quicken every stony heart with The Spirit of Godly-repentance and renew their mind that they will come to humbly to You today confessing  “a SINCERE YES” to Your Free Gift of Salvation and receive You as their pesonal Savior and Lord of their life!

Lord, we ask You to infuse the hearts and minds of everyone who has turned their backs and walked away from You with a “FRESH COMMITTED YES LORD”! Let today be the day that they come running back to You and come home to YOUR vineyard.

Father, as You know, so many of Your chosen have been afficted by sickness and diseases, therefore we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister who are suffering in their bodies, especially with the spirit of cancer, HIV, Aids, kidney, heart and lung disease, high/low blood pressure and arthritis, autism, dementia, alheizmers, bi-polar and clinical depression! Lord we ask that You rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. Lord, Your Word declares that You are Jehovah Rophe and the stripes, bruises and wounds that You endured on The Cross have redeemed and healed us! Today we  stand on every promise that proceeded from Your Mouth and decree that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name!

Lord, we pray for every believer who is struggling to yet hold onto Your Hand by faith today, trusting that You are releasing a double portion of Divine Power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection. Father, we believe that You shall preserve us thru every  test and trial that You’ve ordained us to go thru and that You shall continue to keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE! We shall remain  fully-confident that at Your appointed time, You will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and You shall reward  us with the Victory as  promised in Your Eternal Word.

Father, we’re thanking You for an outpouring of Your Divine Favor upon each and every one of Your children who are facing 911 circumstances, those seeking  sudden breakthroughs in family situations, deliverance from financial issues,  employment and promotions,  we ask that You favor them with a prompt approval for student/car/home/business/church loans as You assure them although WITH MAN it may very well be IMPOSSIBLE BUT BECAUSE YOU are GOD, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE TO YOU, THEREFORE TRUST2KNO YOU SHALL supply all of our need according to Your Riches in Glory!

Aba Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of  anxiety, stress, intimdation, threat, doubt and fear is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

Father, we lift up our children, our grand/great-grand children. Lord we know that they’re facing many challenges, (kidnapping, bullying, incest, sexual and physical abuse, murder, suicide, depression, deceptions and all manner of social perversions) the such we never believed possible. Nevertheless, we’re trusting wholly upon Your Word,  we rebuke and cancel every wicked scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! We commit them into Your Providential Care! We realize that our children are a gift from You and You have predestined a plan and purpose for their lives. We hold fast to the blessed assurance that from their Mothers’ wombs, their steps and stops are Divinely orchestrated by Your Eyes!

We declare and decree, that NO WEAPON THAT’S FORMED AGAINST THEM SHALL PROSPER, AND EVERY TONGUE THAT RISES UP AGAINST THEM SHALL BE JUDGED AND CONDEMNED RIGHTEOUSLY BY YOU! WE DECREE THE BLOOD OF JESUS OVER THEM AND SPEAK THE PEACE OF GOD OVER THEIR SPIRITS, SOULS, MINDS AND BODIES; RELEASING THE SPIRIT OF LOVE, HOLINESS, CONFIDENCE, JOY AND EXCELLENCE EQUIPPING THEM TO FULFILL THEIR GOD ORDAINED DESTINY! IN JESUS NAME! Amen 3x!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we lift up every spiritual leaders, speaking LIFE, STRENGTH, HOPE, ENCOURAGEMENT, CONFIDENCE, ASSURANCE, RESTORATION AND UNWAVERING TRUST into the hearts and minds of all those who are yet believing for the immediate manifestation of that special miracle and the fulfillment of every vision that You’ve placed into their hearts! Reward those who are yet standing boldly on the Wall proclaiming Your Word under THE CONVICTING POWER & ANOINTING of Holy Spirit! We’re trusting and believing You to Grace them to be TRUE EFFECTIVE WITNESSES and examples of YOUR Righteousness in their homes, churches, marketplaces, and community that will provoke others who come into contact with them to envy the JOY that they possess, to seek and fall madly in LOVE with You, trust wholly in and commit to live the rest of their lives serving and glorifying You!

Jesus, we praying for our nation and the nations of the world. We ask that You cast out a net of repentance, covering the hearts of those who have been confused and influenced by the wicked deceitfulness of the Accuser. We know that You are the same God who in times past, hearing the prayers of the righteous, repented of Your plan to destroy the Nation of Israel and turned Your peoples’ hearts back to You. Lord, Save, Heal & Deliver America!

Heavenly Father, Your people are going through things that we never expected, but we know that absolutely nothings takes You by surprise, therefore we come before Your Throne, lifting up all those who are broken-hearted, feeble in spirit, mind and body, those who are standing at a crossroad and have no idea which way to go, those who are addicted to selfishness, those who are addicted to harmful substances; we pray for  our armed forces, policemen, fire and rescue personnel, nurses, doctors, surgeons, missionaries far and near. We’re trusting You to send wisdom, knowledge and instruction, replace confusion with peace, hate with love and division with unity! Bless the orphans, the widows, the rejected and outcasts with Fathers and Mothers in The Gospel! LORD, KEEP US ALL AS ONLY YOU CAN!

Abba, we know that there’re so many other things that we’ve failed to include, we’re asking that Holy Spirit to intervene on our behalf, searching the secret places of our inner-most being, interceding and interpreting the sighs, moans and groans and bring them before Your Throne of Mercy!

Father as we wait in confidence and quietness, we rejoice in hope; trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly retreating in shameful defeat,  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 already done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3x and It Is So!

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES YOU JUST AS MUCH AS HE LOVES EVERYBODY!

LIVING YESTERDAY

Living Yesterday 2

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

THIS IS THE DAY WHICH THE LORD HATH MADE, REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT! PSALM 118:24

 

The Good ol’ Days!” WOW! Remember? But what is it about memories? Either time has a peculiar way of tainting our perspective or our minds automatically default to selective-perceptions when the moment ends.

#WOW! Somehow, as we reflect upon days gone by,  there will be times when we can actually feel that gut-wrenching pain (that you were utterly convinced was terminal) and the high that would get higher and the groove gets groovyur; the music never stopped; the laughter would become heartier and the flood of tears would never subside; the mornings came too soon and the nights were eternal; puppy love would grow into a couple, a family and divorce and you’d just…and recess lasts for a lifetime…and then it didn’t! BUT SUDDENLY, IT’S TODAY and you’re still alive! #wannacheckurpulse?

The infamous THEY said that the richest piece of real estate in any town, city, state or nation is the grave yard!  #DIDJAGETIT?  Can you imagine all of those hopes, dreams, secrets, recipes, thoughts, conversations, hugs, apologies, promises, potential, possibilities and plans that remain unfulfilled beneath the soil! WOW! 

BELOVED, release the coulda’s, woulda’s, shoulda’s! Smile triumphantly over conquests and the sweetness of successes! Sigh sheepishly over the guilts and regrets—then thank GOD for all the second chances!

My Precious Ones, whatever happened, good, bad, ugly and indifferent; you survived it ALL!

“You can’t alter your past, but you can always take your past to the Altar!” (unknown)

Thank GOD for the Sufficiency of yesterday’s Grace and Hope-Filled tomorrows!

BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, THANK GOD FOR THIS BRAND-NEW BLESSING CALLED 2DAY! DON’T WASTE A SECOND OF IT! #ijs!!! LIVE LOUD TODAY AS IF IT WERE YOUR LAST! 

WHO KNOWS, IT COULD VERY WELL BE, huh? 

SELAH!

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!

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

SELAH Devotions!

 
Good Morning Family! GOTTA MOMENT? GREAT GOD ALMIGHTY! We’re so glad that you’ve joined with us today in our weekly Day of Corporate Pray and Fasting! LET’S PRAY…

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!

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!
Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the Knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His Divine power has given to us all things that pertain To life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue by which Have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be Partakers of the divine nature, having escaped The corruption that is in the world through lust. 2 Peter 1:1-4

 

Didjakno?  Today’s scripture text is penned by The Apostle Simon Peter! You know Peter, right? He’s the same cussin’ Peter who rejected Jesus three times, cut off the soldier’s ear, stepped out of the boat on the stormy sea and walked on the water to Jesus. Well,  now Peter is a self-proclaimed bond-servant, Divinely ordained and authorized to speak on behalf of Jesus ChristNow this really excites me! Why? Because it assures me of the unfathomable Mercies of our Loving Savior and that nothing in your past has the power to keep you from fulfilling your Destiny! Now to me that’s a good place to praise God, huh?  Hold my mule…Halleleujahhhh!

We, having no right to such loving kindness, yet have been graciously endowed with His Divine Power and given everything that we need to escape the corruption of this world and to live a holy and godly life, not in heaven, but in this present worldDidjaheardat? Unbelievable, I know; but it’s True!

God has equipped true Believers with indwelling Power of The Holy Spirit, transforming us into His Chariots of Fire in this earth!

We  love to sing Donnie McKlurkin’s song, “We fall down, but we get up, we fall down, but we get up…because a saint is just a sinner who fell down, and got up”! Don’t get me wrong, I like that song too. However, we can get a little twisted in our mindset, (not to mention our Theology) because of the craftiness of the devil, and without knowing it, we can actually be masking a spirit of rebellion behind the cloak of faith!

“Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound…GOD FORBID!” Romans 6:1-2

As disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, every one of us has been commissioned by God to reflect His Glory to this lost, dark and dying world. Yet, if we keep falling to the same old temptations over and over, flippantly counting on the favor of God to show up in our pit to rescue you out of the same old mess, how’s God’s Glory being manifested? #ijs!

According to The Holy Ghost, True Glory is manifested when a believer demonstrates righteousness thru faithful obedience. When you make a genuine commitment to deny the ungodly appetites of your flesh, rather than to bring reproach to the Name of His Lord and Savior, not only are you relying upon God’s Power to deliver you, you’re also proving your love and gratitude for all that Jesus did to redeem you back to your Heavenly Father.

Our journey to Heaven is plagued with unexpected, trouble, chaos and tragedy, however knowing that The Promise Keeper is able to open up pathways that you know not of, make ways out of no way, open doors that have been shut and carries us triumphantly  thru every valley to the mountaintops, fortifies our trust with Hope! As we experience His miraculous deliverances, it develops our confidence so much so that when our faith is challenged by difficulties, we don’t give up, we look up!

A true carrier of God’s Glory plants his faith in the Word of God’s Grace! Having done all to stand, stands therefore, steadfast, unmovable, always abounding, continuously expanding, exceeding all natural expectations, daring to taunt and frustrate the evil plans of the wicked, with holy boldness, testifying ‘Satan, I might have to Bend, but I refuse to Bow”!

NOW, YOU’RE JUS WHAT THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR!  #BOOM! GO AHEAD…LIGHT UP THE WORLD PROCLAIMING, ‘TO GOD BE THE GLORY! KEEP THE FIYA BURNING!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
