MORNING GLORAAA

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

 

Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord, and teachest him out of thy law; 13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.14 For the Lord will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.

15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it. 

16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? 17 Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence. 18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O Lord, held me up. 19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul. 20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood. 22 But the Lord is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge. 23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off.

Psalm 94:12-23

The enemy seeks to obliterate God’s people. The evildoers target the most vulnerable groups in society, whom the LORD will defend. God will discipline those He loves, correcting and instructing them to bring them back into relationship with Him. God recognizes humanity/s inherent weaknesses. Corrupt rulers enact legislation that persecutes the righteous an enables wickedness, which is CLEARLY contrary to God’s Will! (Excerpts from Ps. 94:5-23 Study Bible, KJV)

“If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God, “I’ll get you out of any trouble. I’ll give you the best of care if you’ll only get to know and trust me. Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times; I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party. I’ll give you a long life, give you a long drink of salvation!” Psalm 91:14-16 The Message

 

REST ASSURED, 4 JUSTICE IS ON ITS WAY! GOD PROTECTS W HAT THE WICKED WOULD DESTROY! BLESSED BE GOD 4EVER & ALWAYS!

NEVER 4GOTTEN; NEVER 4SAKEN!

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

SELAH Daily Devotions!

Good morning Precious Saints of The Most High God! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAAZIN!

We welcome you again to our Weekly Thursdays’ Day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting! As you well know, ‘In times like this’, our souls need to be anchored in prayer to the Only Wise God and Savior of all, The Great High Priest, LORD JESUS CHRIST! Many of us whose hearts are wearied and burdened by the affairs and cares of this ol’ world, welcome every opportunity to run gladly into the Throne Room finding hope-filled rest under the Shadows of The Almighty God! Shall we enter in…

Bow down and Worship Him, Worship Him! Ooohh Worship Him! Bow Down and Worship Him! Enter in! Oooh Enter In. Consuming Fire, Sweet Perfume! Your Awesome Presence, fills this room! This is Holy ground…This is Holy ground…we bow down….BELIEVING THAT GOD IS LISTENING, PRAYING, WITH & FOR US…

Abba Father, we come before You once again; humbled by Your Loving-Kindness we cry out to You In the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus! While many of us are struggling with the real-time cares of this dark, lost and ungodly world, our spirit man is yet rejoicing, praising and thanking You for blessing us to see one more day.Recognizing that it was not because of any goodness of our own that we live, move and have our being, we quickly thank You, from hearts for another opportunity to embrace the abundance of Your Mercy, Grace and 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 humility and sincere gratitude, we acknowledge Your Awemaazing Grace, Compassion and Faithfulness allows You, knowing our frame, YET to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities and minister so generously to every need pertaining to life and godliness!

Abba Father, hear our prayers reverberating from hearts openly offering up precious praise to You, for that Glorious Day when You interrupted our lives, opened up the eyes of our understanding and filled our spirits with the Revelation of Your Son Jesus, allowing us to freely receive Him as our personal Savior and Lord!

Precious Father, we ask You to forgive us of every sin we have committed or omitted willfully and unwillfully in thought, word or deed! Where justice should prevail, Lord we plead for Mercy! Thankya for changing our story and those of our loved ones, who’ve not yet come to the knowledge of Your Saving Grace! By faith, we put them under arrest by the Power of Holy Spirit and we call their lives to come into proper alignment with Your Divine Word and Will!

Daddy, because no man can come to the You except You draw them, we pray that as Your eyes search the hearts of humanity, that You draw and save the lost, quickening The Spirit of Godly-repentance in every heart and mind, beckon them to come today confessing ‘a sincere YES’ to Your 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 where they are nurtured and encouraged to live holy, acceptable and committed to faithful obedience to Your Word! In Jesus Name Amen 3x!

Sweet Jesus, we call every backslider to bow to Your Lovingkindness and return to the fold immediately, put a fresh “committed YES” in their heart and mind and a genuine desire to adhere to the Kingdom Constitution as revealed through diligent study of Your Word! Give each one an earnest-sincere-honest-heart desire to build their personal relationship with You through fellowship and a consistent prayer life to live holy, pleasing and glorifying You before this corruptible, lost and dying world that others may ask the question, ‘What must I do to be saved?”!

Lord, remember our children, our grand/great-grands to a thousand generations! We’re claiming Your Promise to save us and our households! While many of them are not walking with You wholly, we trust that You have an appointed time for their deliverance from the tempters destructive plans, plots, schemes and pits! We believe that the SAME MERCY AND PATIENCE that so generously allowed us to be here today is covering our legacy, protecting them from being victimized by the Satanic influences that are rampant in this world! We bind every seducing spirit that seeks to entrap them thru the ungodly soul ties that so easily besets this unsuspecting generation! Therefore, we commit them into Your Hand of Righteousness, realizing that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too, with the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely-orchestrated by Your Eyes! We speak The Peace of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies, releasing Your Love, Holiness, Wholeness, Hope, Confidence and Excellence, equipping and inspiring them to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Sweet Holy Spirit, remember every spiritual leader as we speak LIFE,LIGHT, STRENGTH, ENCOURAGEMENT, CONFIDENCE, ASSURANCE, RESTORATION OF HOPE-FILLED- ENTHUSIASTIC-ANTICIPATION and TRUST into all those who are yet believing for immediate manifestation and the fulfillment of every miracle and vision that You’ve placed into their hearts! We REBUKE AND COMMAND spirits of hindrance, delay, low-self esteem, self-doubt, failure, competitiveness, discouragement, disappointment, confusion, slothfulness, tiredness, weariness, being unappreciated and misunderstood, all those threatened by spirits of suicide MUST LEAVE NOW!

LORD, we thank You for rewarding YOUR servant/leaders who are yet standing on the Wall proclaiming Your Word with POWER, under the Conviction and Anointing of Holy Spirit! Jesus, continue to Grace them to be the FAITHFUL AND TRUE WITNESSES, remnant examples of Your Righteousness in their homes, churches and community that will cause those who come in contact with them to love, trust wholly in You and commit the rest of their lives to serving and glorifying You!

As You have commanded, we pray and thank You for all the leaders of this nation and world. Send direction to them, as they make decisions that affect the future of our lives and our Touch their minds and hearts, visit them in the night, speak to them in dreams and visions and let them know that All POWER BELONGS 2 YOU Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens! Impress upon them that You are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!

Precious Lord Jesus, we’re eternally grateful for the indwelling Presence of Holy Spirit assuring us that YOU ARE THE SOVEREIGN LORD of LIFE and in absolute control of all things. In light of the continuous influx of profound arrogance and illegal/immoral injustices being perpetrated against 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 commit our being unto You, expressing our gratitude because You have promised to yet keep us hidden under The BLOOD! 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! We’re trusting that no weapon that is formed against us shall prosper and every tongue that rises up against Your children shall be condemned!

We confidently speak Your Consoling Peace that surpasses all understanding over our minds, we declare that You are disciplining our thoughts that we may walk circumspectly as disciples of Christ. We put our flesh under subjection to Holy Spirit and resist the hand of the enemy in our lives. We seek You first, asking direction from You and trust You to settle our anxious spirits to be fully persuaded that ‘come what may’ You are well able and willing to save us!

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.

Abba, help us to stand in the Liberty, with our faith firmly rooted in The Sacrificial Atoning Blood of Jesus that has set us free, to live a quality of life that is exceedingly, abundantly and beyond this earthl real and seated in Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus! Therefore the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but Mighty Through GOD, pulling down strongholds, casting down imaginations and everything that exalts itself against The KNOWLEDGE OF GOD! WE PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS OVER OUR MINDS, BODIES, SOULS AND SPIRIT!

Holy Spirit, equip us to walk fearlessly without intimidation so that every demonic spirit assigned to hinder us from fulfilling the good plans You have for us is disarmed! Break-free those who are being held by mind-paralyzing, mouth-muting captivity to speak the WORD OF TRUTH with Holy boldness and Authority! Lift all those up out of the pits of hopelessness, discouragement, oppression, depression, sexual abuse, spousal abuse, spiritual abuse, physical abuse, low self esteem, self-rejection, self-hatred and empower them to walk into large places Divinely ordained from their Mother’s womb! We speak LIFE to those walking thru the valley overshadowed with death, Woman, Man, The Lord God heal, deliver, strengthen, empower and sustain YOU even NOW, IN JESUS NAME!

We speak THE WORD OF YOUR POWER against the all manner of sickness and disease, the spirit of cancer, brain, lung, throat, kidney, liver, pancreas, blood, breast, bone, prostrate those in chemo therapy, radiation therapy, on dialysis, those awaiting transplants, those enduring what man calls incurable disease such has HIV, Parkinson disease, ALS,alheizmers and autism! We speak wondrous reversal of any damage caused by strokes, kidney failure, heart disease, arthritis, glaucoma and every other eye disease and release a Divine Revelation of our healing that You purchased on Calvary and give us instructions on how we can loose total healing in every area of our being!

We pray for the caretakers and lift up those who are lingering on to this life in hospice facilities asking for salvation and sweet transition! We pray for the down-trodden and ask that every bowed down head to be strengthen with Your unshakable Peace! Give us to Hope again! Help us to remember Your Faithfulness and Mercy in times past, recognizing that You O God are the same yesterday, today and forever more! Encourage us with Confidence that You hear our cry, even as You heard the voice of Your children in Egypt!

Father, release unexpected Favor of God; restore marriage, open new jobs, promotions, doors of opportunities for entrepreneurs, debt cancellations, loan approvals, unexpected financial blessings as You are releasing a Double Portion of Your Anointing, Spirit of Love, Power, Sound-mindness and Purpose into the lives of Your people 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!

Abba Father,  in closing, we align our spirits, soul and body with Your Eternal Word, shouting victoriously with unspeakable-joy and bowing reverently 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, Guiding and Ruling Justly! Father, believing that IT IS DONE, In The Exalted Name of Jesus we seal this prayer with Holy Alleleujah! Amen 3X!

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

DENY THE POWER?

The Earth Slowly Burns - Americas

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2 Timothy 3:5

 

Never! Is probably the initial response of most professing-salvation-sanctified-sainted-souls, even at the mere suggestion that we’d be included in ‘those’. Right? BUT!  Have we ever considered the remote possibility, if you will, the collateral damage of being so pre-occupied with ‘getting’ that we lose sight of what God has already ‘given’?

Remember that Ol’ skool churrch song, “Count your blessing! Name them one by one! Count your blessing, see what God has done!”? Think about it? The Israelites were taught to sing songs that rehearsed their history as a daily reminder of God’s loving care, strength and power as He delivered them out of Egyptian slavery, lead them through the wilderness into The Promised Land! A practice, no doubt even in this bustling 21st Century culture, one might find tremendously buffering amidst the new norm of environmental chaos, anxiety and stress.

Just imagine the possible ramifications of a daily allotment of time designated specifically to reflecting upon all the many blessings that The Lord has already so mercifully and graciously heaped upon us. WOW! What inevitablemind-blowing heart-filled  sense of Gratitude, huh?

Could this be what The Apostle Paul was alluding to “according to the power that worketh in us”? (Ref. Ephesians 3:20)

Could a grateful heart pave the way for that “Greater than” we could ask or imagine? Could our pre-disposed poverty-mindedness and perverted sense of unworthiness, steeped in false humility be denying God the opportunity to show-off in our lives? Could we be guilty of having a form of godliness? #OMG!  #GOD FORBID!

HOW GRATEFUL IS YOUR HEART? IS THAT HOW GREAT YOUR GOD IS? DENYING THE POWER? NEVER, huh? #juswondering…

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!

 

WHATZ N YOUR HEART?

WHAT'S IN UR HEART

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

And you shall remember the whole way that the Lord your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that he might humble you, testing you to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments or not. And he humbled you and let you hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that he might make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Deuteronomy 8:2-3 ESV

 

We’ve all been there! At some point in this journey, we’ve found ourselves, barraged by seemingly insurmountable odds stacked against us, huh? There I was, sitting there unsuccessfuly attempting to make a 911 connection to The Throne Room. This one, was a time sensitive—not later—but I need YOU right nah—Lord situation! As my eyes skimmed over to my laptop and I realized that somehow it was in the middle of running an unscheduled scan! Immediately, I understood what the Holy Spirit was trying to do in me.

Remember when you thought you knew, but didn’t really know? Exactly! It’s during these moments of mental confusions and conflicting emotions that we need the aid of Holy Spirit. According to Isaiah 11:2, no one but The Spirit of Truth and Wisdom, can scan the the inner most chambers of the human heart, assess the situation, identify the dangerous infectious viral components, quarantine and eliminate them before they’re able to contaminate our heart’s drive! WOW, and He was doing this way before Bill Gates or Steve Job! Awemaazing, huh? 

With that being said, once again I had to admit that before I could make a right connection with Jesus, I had to clear the line! No, God was not saying that my issue was not valid, but that there was an even more life-threating situation that demanded immediate attention. There was something crucial going on in my heart that I was not willing to confront and deal with at the root! Sometimes we do that, you know? We like to justify our rebellion by playing the blame game. “Lord, if they hadn’t….then I never would’ve …” But God wasn’t buying none of that!

There’s no denying that there’s something embedded in the DNA of humanity that resists repentance.  C’mon, don’t shout me down nah! #ijs!!!

It’s difficult for us to acknowledge that we’re at fault. It’s a whole lot easier for us to judge others by their actions and ourselves by our good intentions, huh? But God is not intimidated by our self-deceiving, willful, prideful hearts NOR IS HE IMPRESSED BY OUR CHURCH TESTIMONIES!

God strategically sets up unscheduled heart scans to illuminate potentially critial viruses that left untreated could result in the hardening of the arteries causing damaging blockages. For instance, that spirit of jealosy, envy, anger, resentment, bitterness and yessss the unforgiveness haboring in the crevices of your heart against someone, who probably doesn’t even know it! You know how fake the saints can be sometimes. Problem is, chances are before the end of the day, you’ll probably gonna need somebody to forgive you for something! The scripture is clear on this, if you don’t forgive others, neither will Your Heavenly Father forgive you your faults! (Ref. Matthew 6:15) OMG! Kinda sheds a different light on it, huh?

Beloved, I don’t know about you, but I NEED THE MERCY AND GRACE OF GOD, ALL DAY…EVERY DAY! Don’t look at me with that tone of voice, Y’all know I ain’t by myself!

I know it’s not always easy, especially when you’re the one who’s been hurt. But considering the repercussions, sounds to me like, by GOD’S Grace, whatever the offense, we just need to release it, drop it, leave it and let God handle it! God always knows everything about everything –and we don’t!

SO, WHAT’S REALLY IN YOUR HEART? #GOD REALLY KNOWS!

SELAH!

GOD REMEMBERS!!!

GOD REMEMBERS2

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

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

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

 

In light of the prevailing gross darkness, devastation and desolation taking place in our world today, I was incited to review the words of God’s Prophet, Isaiah, speaking to the remnant of God’s Chosen nation.

God’s people were facing eminent danger of massive destruction, yet we hear Isaiah offering a word of warning and a ray of hope that we’d do well to glean from today. The Prophet encourages them that no matter what’s happening around you, don’t be afraid, but keep trusting and praising our God!  Isaiah, knowing God inhabits the praises of His people, speaks to souls wearied by the consequences of unwise choices and reminds them that their only hope of deliverance was to remain steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of their Lord! (Ref. 1 Corinthians 15:58)

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

Beloved, when life is out of your control, rest assured, Jesus is always in control! The Eternal Word testifies that you are the apple of His eye and He has tatooed your name in the palm of His Hands forever. (Ref. Psalm 17:8; Isa. 49:16)

In the midst of these unsettling times,  there’s no denying the myriad of distractions that are attempting to cause even the most seasoned of saints to question whether or not The Sovereign Creator and Sustainer of All Life is really concerned about what’s going on down here amongst the gross darkness of a lost, unfaithful and rebellious world,  nevertheless, I adjure you to keep your eyes on Jesus, The Joy of your Salvation and your feet steadfast on THE WORD! Be confident of this very thing, He that has begun a GOOD WORK IS FAITHFUL TO COMPLETE IT UNTIL THE DAY OF JESUS CHRIST! (Ref. Philippians 1:6)

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

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

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life. Fear not: for I am with thee:… Isaiah 43:1-5

 

One thing for certain, two things for sure: Life happens fast and furious! Preparing for the unexpected is a challenge for any of us! Saved or Unsaved, huh?

Yet as believers in The Lordship of Jesus Christ, we’re taught to do just that! The Word of God warns us that when faced with seemingly overwhelming circumstances, as believers, our first response must be to resist panic and anxiety! How many times has your circumstantial evidence threatened to destroy all hope for recovering the calmness that we once enjoyed walking in the comfort of God’s favor? #bothhandsup!

Nevertheless, time and wisdom have trained us that Satan delights in using  fortuitous turbulent winds and haphazardry waves of chaos, temptations and uncertainty to manipulate and vex the minds of unsuspecting sainted-souls of God’s elect.

From the beginning, The Master of Deceit, has proven himself quite adept in distracting our hearts away from what we know of God, derailing our commitment to trust and  giving way to questioning, doubt, unbelief and ultimately dissipating our hope-filled confidence into pits of of desperation, fear and despair! While it sometimes appears as if Satan has been declared the victor, it behooves you to not fall for the ‘ookey-doke’, and never ever underestimate The Power of God! 

TRUST2KNO, GOD IS SOVEREIGN!! Hence, your enemies can’t intrude into your life, except God allows! And the only way that He’ll permit the demons to invade your personal space, is to prove that His greater purpose excels far beyond your temporary pain and discomfort!

Therefore, Beloved, don’t believe everything you see! The enemy’s arsenal is flanked by confusion, isolation, intimidation and fear.  #AKA #FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL! Chances are, it ain’t what it looks like! Besides, God has not given us a spirit of fear, but as Children of Light, we’ve inherited HOLY GHOST POWER, LOVE AND A SOUND MIND! (Ref. 1 Peter 4:12-14) #Didjaheardat?

Regardless of what attempts to impede your trust and confident reliance on The Presence and Prominence of your Loving Heavenly Father, you cling steadfastly to what you’ve already experienced and sojourn safely through the murky rivers of Life! And even if, some water gets into your boat, keep in mind that your life is anchored in The Rock of Ages!

Faith in God’s Loving Care, gives us eternal assurance that  whenever/whatever the test, trial and trauma of life accost us, we can ride out the storms in quiet confidence that He Who called you ‘MINE’ Will NEVER LEAVE OR FORSAKE US! (Ref. Hebrews 13:5)

JESUS LIVED ABOVE THE CIRCUMSTANCES! SO, WHAT’S UP WITH U?

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
