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!

AFTER THIS, LOOK 4 THE GLORRAA

And said to his servant, go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up and looked, and said. There is nothing. And he said, go up again seven times. And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, behold there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man’s hand. And he said, go up, say unto Ahab. Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down, that the rain stop thee not. And it came to pass in the meanwhile, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. 1 Kings 18:43-45

 

It’s one thing to say that we trust God, but it’s how we endure the proving time that determines the genuineness of our trust! #Didjaheardat?

Life inevitably includes intervals of those pesty impositions I call ‘the dark times’! Like unexpected uninvited guest, trouble has a way of poppin in and staying way longer than we’d prefer! And to make matters even more unsettling, it’s during these seasons that we’re most likely to experience times when all evidence to substantiate that God is still with you and any sign indicating that He’s even listening to your prayers is essentially non-existent!

Knowing personally, it’s not easy watching our children’s lives being ravished by sickness and their youthful dreams and ambitions dissipated by helpless-hopelessness. But this is where the clichés that we so impressively sprout off to others are proven real or Memorex!  Beloved, the longer we walk with Jesus we discover that it’s in the midst of the storms that God reveals His Best Handy Work!  Who would’ve ever imagined that in spite of the dire forecast, The SON yet shines, leading and drawing us closer to Himself! Clearly, He’s determined, through any means necessary, to prove unequivocally that everything that the devil meant for evil, God can turn it around and make it work in our favor! (Ref. Romans 8:28)

Oh My! How my soul rejoiced that day, hearing that my son had given his life to The Lord during a bible study class the evening before! Little did I know that God would use this storm to woo him into seeking Him for himself , thereby positioning him for the miraculous showers of blessings that would follow! And most certainly, I never imagined as I was praying that God would stretch my faith and increase my knowledge of His Wisdom and Power, that I’d have to bury his twin brother to experience a whole new dimension of God’s Super-Sustaining Grace!

The Prophet Elijah teaches his young protégé that even when we can’t see no way to escape the very real threat of emminent destruction, we can yet trust God’s Heart and His Hands. God’s vision is far greater than 20/20. It’s from eternity past to eternity future! God watches guardingly over us thru The Blood stained eyes of Jesus. And through Divinely-inspired confident trust and quiet patience we discover the inexhaustible treaures God’s Faithfulness!

Today, you may find yourself plagued by all manner of maladies. Many of God’s people’s lives are being wounded and worn out by the insidious attacks of the enemies of God and  unfortunately, many are losing hope for life getting any better. But remember, anything is possible with God! TRUST2KNO, while our troubles have a predesignated date of expiration;  our prayers are eternal! #DIDJAHEARDAT??

As people of Hope, instead of surrendering to the pressures of circumstantial evidence, we pray; committing ourselves and our circumstances to our Omnipotent, Omniscient Omnipresent Savior and Lord! By doing this, we’re demonstrating to God that we are relying wholeheartedly upon His Love and the sufficiency of His Grace to sustain and deliver us! As we pray, God intervenes in His designated timing, turning everything the devil meant for evil—around for our greatest good and His Highest Glory! (Ref. 1 Chronicles 7:14)  #4REAL!

Don’t allow the darkness to deceive you. Could God be using the clouds to shield you from your enemies view, aligning you up for an unexpected miracle? (Ref. Exodus 13:21) I know it’s been a long night, but don’t give up!  They tell me, the darkest hour is just before the break of a new day. #Ijs!

Beloved, go take another look! SEEDAT? AFTER THIS, LOOK 4 THE GLORY!

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

GOOD MORNING FAMILY! GOTTA MOMENT? GLORRRAAAA!

We’re delighted that you’ve joined us in our Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting! Those of us who recognize the honor, privilege and value of a habitual prayer life, look forward to each and every opportunity to run boldly before The Majestic Throne of God’s Grace and Mercy, assured that He is the One who beckons our hearts to Himself, where we can find hope and help to persevere us in the midst of life’s tests, trials and tragedy! Let us enter in…

 

Great is Thy Faithfulness, Great is Thy Faithfulness! Morning by morning, new mercies I see! All I have needed, Thy Hand has provided! GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS! GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS! GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS! LORD UNTO ME!

 

Father God, Creator, Ruler and Sustainer of Heaven and Earth, it is with exceeding joy that we come, hallowing Your Name, as the Only Wise God Who has so graciously bestowed upon us The Name that’s above every name that can be named, JESUS, our Redeeming Messiah, Savior and Eternal Lord!

As we bow, humbled by the Awesomeness and Wonder of Your Glory, we’re careful to acknowledge that it is in You that we live, move and have our very being. We are Eternally grateful that You have Sovereignly ordained that we were able to sleep safely through last night while the angelic host were encamped around our homes,  and You Who awakened us to enjoy the precious gift of one more day of life! Truly, we acknowledge that there’s nothing in and of ourselves that merits such generosity, but relying solely upon Your Faithful Loving Kindness, we rejoice crying out, “If it had not been for The Lord on my side, my enemies would’ve swallowed me up!”
Abba Father, as we embrace this day, we pray that You will lead us in the paths of Your Righteousness and guide us through the valleys overshadowed by death and darkness, keeping us, The Apple of Your Eye, constantly aware of You are Omnipresent, everywhere at the same time! As we abide under Your Hand, You rebuke the schemes of the wicked, command the defeat of our Adversary and help us to remember that Greater Is He Who is In US than he who is against us.
Sweet Holy Spirit, our Omniscient Comforter, being fully aware of the finite limitations of our frail, fickled and flawed frame, we ask that You intercede on our behalf with Grace to sustain us during those moments when our flesh is weakened by the cares of this ungodly world and  overwhelmed with fear, worry, doubt, unbelief and ensnared by the temptations of mortality! We pray that You touch and strengthen our hearts, empowering us to remain steadfast, immovable, fully confident and trusting that our times are in The Mighty Hand of The Master who controls the iron, the archer, the bow and the arrow, assuring us That NO WEAPON THAT’S FORMED AGAINST US SHALL PROSPER, AND EVERY TONGUE THAT RISES UP AGAINST US, IS ALREADY CONDEMNED!
We’re thankful that You’ve proven that Your Covenant Faithfulness and Compassion, allows You to look beyond our the  impurities, frailties, faults and iniquities of our humanity, seeing yet You continue to minister to all of our real need! Therefore, not willing to frustrate this underserved FAVOR, we ask now that You forgive us for everything that we’ve done, willfully and unwillfully that violates Your Holy and Righteous Commands. We ask this in Jesus Name, trusting WHOLLY in Your Promise that if we do this, You are Faithful and Just to forgive us and to cleanse us  from all unrighteous IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, restoring us to rightstanding as Your Beloved, Children of The Most High God!

FOR THIS CAUSE, we offer up sweet praise to You today, for renewed strength, understanding and power that comes from a heart open to, depending and relying only on You!  Because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we intercede on behalf of every unsaved soul,  asking You to prick and quicken their stony hearts and minds with The Spirit of Godly-repentance that allows them to come running to You today confessing “a SINCERE YES” to Your FREE Gift of Salvation thru GRACE and receive You as BOTH their personal Savior and LORD! We’re believing that You will direct their footsteps and placing and setting them in a local church home where they will be welcomed and embrace with love, encouraged, nurtured and delivered thru the preached WORD OF GOD!
Lord, we ask You to put a fresh “COMMITTED YES LORD!” in the heart and mind of every backslider and let today be the day that they come back to You and come back HOME to YOUR church, where they will learn to love and live the life that’s pleasing  to You First and Foremost, being willing to submit the rest of their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, denying the lust of their flesh, determined to walk daily to please and Glorify You to this lost, dark and dying world!!
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 the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!
Sweet Holy Spirit, we pray for every one going thru a season of sorrow and grief, those who are being victimized by institutionalized racism, tormented by Spirits of fear, rejection, disappointment and failure, divorce, lost of employment, bankruptcy and unjust illegal incarcerations! We plead the Blood of Jesus over every demonic thought, spirits of anxiety, oppression, depression and confusion, because we know that You are not the author of these satanic thoughts and feelings, but You have given us who have put our personal trust in Your Son Jesus, Your Righteousness, a Spirit of Love, Peace, Joy and a Sound Mind!
Father, as we lift up our children, our grand and great grandchildren, by faith we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives, we cancel every evil scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we realize that You have a Plan and Purpose for their lives too and with the blessed assurance that their steps are being ordered by Your eyes, we  speak The LIFE AND PEACE of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies releasing a Spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!
Sweet Jesus, lifting up every spiritual leader, we ask that You encourage and strengthen all the Apostles, Bishops, Preachers, Evangelist, Teachers, Musicians, choir members, Liturgical dancers and especially the Shepherds who are yet standing on the wall, proclaiming Your Unadulterated Word under the convicting power and anointing of Holy Spirit! We’re rebuking spirits of discouragement, failure, competiveness, resentment, unworthiness and suicide. We’re praying and believing for the immediate manifestation of special signs, wonders and miraculous desires that You have placed into their hearts! Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace them to be the examples of Your Righteousness in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love with You, trust wholly in and commit to live the rest of their lives serving You!
Eternal King, knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of all mankind, and as You have commanded, we’re praying that You have Mercy on our nation. We’re lifting up every secular, government/legislative/judicial,civic/corporate leader in authority over our nation and this world, we’re praying that You visit them in the night seasons with dreams and visions, warning them that The Eyes of the Lord roam to and fro throughout the land, searching the very intents of every man’s heart, 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.
Precious Lord, we pray for every Believer whose faith is being sifted by the cares of this world, yet they’re struggling to hold on to Hope found inYour Word, trusting that this is the day that You release Divine Power, Supernatural Hope, Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection. Holy Father, we thank You for being our Shield and Buckler, we’re committing our lives to You, trusting You to preserve everyone of us thru the tests that You’ve ordained us to go thru,! Standing still, fully-confident that while our trouble has an expiration date but Your Power does NOT, we declare and decree 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.
Father, as we go throughout this day, we ask that The God of All Peace rest upon all who are oppressed, depressed, gripped by anxiety, fear and that Your Healing Wings cover the sick and afflicted, the hopeless, discouraged, comfort and console the caretakers! We pray that You bring understanding in the midst of confusion and extend Mercy to heal broken marriages and restore families. We declare and decree that we are more than conquers therefore, every demonic-induced spirit of addiction and fear is defeated NOW because of Your Yoke Destroying, Burden Bearing Anointing that the Spirit of Love, Power a Sound-mind and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!
Lord, while there are so many other things that we have yet to mention, we’re trusting that You are not just able, but You’re willing to do anything that we ask, according to You Perfect Will. We’re decreeing and believing You to FIX IT JESUS, as only YOU CAN!
Abba Father, awaiting Your Salvation and Deliverance in confident quietness, we rejoice in hope, trusting wholly that You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications with Thanksgiving and have received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

 

Heavenly Father, we thank You for these blessing and favor and seal this Prayer In The Holy Ghost, for WE KNOW THAT IN THE PRECIOUS EXALTED NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, IT IS DONE; WE SAY AMEN 3X with a HOLY HALLELUJAHHH!
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!

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 Daily Devotions!

 

GOOD MORNING CHILDREN OF THE TRUE AND LIVING GOD! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAAZIN!

Once again we come together for our Weekly Thursdays Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We count it an honor and privilege to entreat The Majestic Throne of The Maker and Sustainer of Life, seeking Supernatural Mercy, Grace, Counsel, Hope and Help, that God has allotted to any who place our personal trust in The Salvation of our Lord Jesus Christ, to overcome the cumbersome cares of this world! Shall we enter into His Presence with Joy-filled Thanksgiving?

WE WORSHIP YOU, ALMIGHTY GOD! THERE IS NONE LIKE YOU! WE WORSHIP YOU, O PRINCE OF PEACE! THAT IS WHAT WE LONG TO DO! WE GIVE YOU PRAISE, FOR LORD YOU ARE OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS! WE WORSHIP YOU, ALMIGHTY GOD, THERE IS NONE LIKE YOU! THERE IS NONE LIKE YOU! THERE IS NONE LIKE YOU…

 
ABBA FATHER, as we come before You today, In the Magnificent, All Powerful Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus, we’re determined to rejoice, praise and thank You for blessing us to see the last month of 2018! Looking back, we know that it was no goodness of our own but solely because of Your Loyal Love, You havebrought us all the way to this very moment. Through dangers seen and unseen, Thou has kept us safe from all hurt and harm! We bow before You now humbled by Your Benevolence to say Thank You, Father for one more day to enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace!

Father, we come  blessing You for the day that You opened our hearts enabling us to recognize and receive the saving Grace in the Life, Death, Burial and Resurrection of Your Son, Jesus! We acknowledge that because it pleased You, You choose us to be Your very own children, while there was absolutely nothing in us lovable nor worthy of this amazing honor and privilege!

Lord Jesus, we are eternally grateful that You purposed in Your Heart and and committed Your Being to be The Only Acceptable Atoning Sacrifice to redeem and reconcile our sin-sick souls from Sin, securing our Salvation, Deliverance, Breakthrough, Peace and Provision. We’re eternally thankful that You, knowing our frame, overcome by Compassion for us, You are willing to look beyond our human frailties, faults, flaws and iniquities, seeing yet ministering to every one of our need!

Once, again, Heavenly Father, we ask that You forgive us for every deed, word, thought that we’ve committed willfully and unwillfully that violated The Righteous Statues that You have commanded for our lives. We’re trusting that even when our own hearts condemn us, because Your Faithfulness is greater than our hearts, as we confess our sins to You, You forgive us, cleanse us in The Precious Blood of Jesus and reconcile us to our rightful position in The Kingdom of our Heavenly Father!

Precious Lord, because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we ask that as Your Eyes continue to search the hearts of mankind, that You shall draw and save the lost, reclaim every back-slider, prick every heart with a Spirit of Godly-Repentance that frees them to confess a ‘SINCERE AND COMMITTED YES LORD,  and direct their footsteps to a local church home today where they will be greeted, embraced, welcomed in Love by genuine Sisters and Brothers in Christ and taught Your Word that they may live out the remainder of their lives, glorifying You to a lost and dying world! Today, we’re stand agreeing and believing that all of our unsaved loved ones and friends will be saved in the year 2019 and join our Eternal Family!
Father, we pray that You will remember our brothers and sisters whose spirits, minds and bodies have been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease! Because nothing is impossible to You, we believe that You are healing and delivering from The Spirit Cancer, high/low blood pressure, heart and blood disease, kidney, lung failure, hearing and vision disorders, satanically induced depression, oppression, anxiety, torment, drug addictions, Alzheimer, Dementia, Autism, Spirits of perversions and ungodly soul ties and we call forth total permanent deliverance from every physical, emotional, sexual and spiritual abuse! We believe that as we’re praying, You are rebuking every generational curse, casting down strongholds and commanding immediate release of every trace of sickness and disease from the root, for Your Name Sake! Lord, we’re standing on Your Promise that by Your stripes we have been redeemed and healed and the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Precious Lord, as You sit Enthroned above the circle of the Earth, nothing happens that takes You by surprise. Because we’re living in the last of the last day, our enemies have stepped up their attacks upon Your Elect. Therefore, we lift up every believer who is yet struggling to hold on to Your Hand, and by faith today, we declare and decree that You are interceding on our behalf, releasing a Double Portion of Your Divine Power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity, Peace and Protection. We thank You for empowering and preserving each of us through the tests that You allow, keep us constantly aware of Your Presence, fully confident that the expiration date for our tests, trials, temptations and traumatic episodes have been pre-ordained before we were born into the earth.

Therefore as instructed, teach us to glory in the midst of tribulation, acknowledging that the trying of our faith works patience and perseverance, proving Your Power to sustain and overcome every weapon that’s formed against us, turning our situations around to work in our favor and exalting Your Name to the nations!

Sweet Holy Spirit, Father, thank You for listening to the hearts of all those who are distraught by grief and fear, remember 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 that our God is not unrighteous to forget or overlook the labor and love they’ve shown towards Your Name and how they have and continue to minister to the saints! Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of fear and confusion 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!

Precious Lord, remember the children, our grands and great-grand children! By faith we plead THE BLOOD OF JESUS over their lives, covering them wherever they go! We abort, overrule every curse, cancel every scheme and plot that Satan desires to inflict upon their lives! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we remember how generous You were and continue to be in dispensing Grace and Mercy towards us! Realizing that You have a Plan and Purpose for their lives also, today, we resist fear and worry and through faith and patience, we walk in the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by Your Eyes! We speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds, souls 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. Undergird them with Your Anointing to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Encourage and strengthen their hearts, souls and spirits as they endeavor to reach, teach, preach, guide, guard and comfort those whom You’ve charged them to minister to. Lord You know how discouraging it can be when oftentimes they seem to turn a deaf ear to Your Word! 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.

Heavenly Father, as You have taught us, we pray for the leaders of our nation, political, corporate, judicial, education, financial, healthcare, military, public service, entertainment institutions and every other institution of our nations! We’re asking that You touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in dreams and visions letting them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! We 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 and that You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Holy Father, we pray for total deliverance from every cord that would bind Your people and come against our Divine Destiny! We rebuke the demonic enemies of our minds and Thankya that nothing can stop the blessings or us from performing the greater works You have assigned to the covenant saints! Strengthen and renew the covenant of faith! We thankya for the courage and patience to stand, steadfast, consistent, always abounding in the work of our Lord!

Holy Father, there are so many other things, that we have yet to mention, nevertheless, we’re trusting, believing You WILL FIX IT, LORD JESUS, as only You can! We know that You are not just able, but willing to do anything that we ask, in accordance to Your Word!! As we continue thanking You throughout this day, Father, TRUST2KNOW, we’re depending on Your Joy to strengthen us for whatever lies ahead, we shall give You all the Praise, in Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

In closing, we seal this prayer, with a Holy Hallelujah! Father; we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope. trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing 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! We pray that the words of our mouths and the meditation of our hearts be acceptable in Your Sight!

Father, we thank You NOW, for WE believe that according to Your Purpose and Timing, 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 JESUS IS REAL AND HE’S COMING BACK SOON!

SELAH!

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!

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10
Well! Well! Well! Here we go again, huh? America is waking up the morning after The Mid-term Elections! And once again, it depends on which side of the aisle your heart is seated on whether you’re  absolutely delighted or definitely discouraged. Now I know, according to some, it’s socialally irresponsible to mix politics with religion! Or was that waaayyyy backndaday? Needless to say, those of you who know me, already know that I’m generally much to real for a whole lotta folk, so can we jus talk?

Has anyone (besides me) evrrr jus wondered how so many of our caucasian (and those few Afro-American) evangelical bretheren could be such staunch supporters of #45 and at the same time profess their absolute devotion to The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? #ohnoshedidn’t! OH YES I DID! Honestly, to me, this scenario in itself seems nothing short of paradoxical! #ijs!!!

Now for you legalistic dogmatic religious enthusist who’re already looking at me some kinda way, I know that the Bible says, “Judge Not, lest Ye BE JUDGED”! (Ref. Matt. 7:1) There’s also another scripture that says, ““He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her! (Ref. John 8:7) please  allow me a few moments of  ‘senior folly’! I’m merely suggesting an alternative prospective for your  momentary consideration! Done lost ½ my church already, huh?

God, not willing that His children be ignorant of the enemy’s devices, has so graciously allowed anyone of us who lacks wisdom the privilege to merely ask Him! (Ref. James 1:5) 

Hence, last nite, I was awakened from my slumber, hearing the TV, that being my custom,  tuned into a very popular Religious Cable Network , and lo and behold I was enlightened! Much to my surprise, there was a partaa going on among some of the most prominent elite wealthy evangelical preachers who having graced this  humongous Red/White/Blue Flag drapped stage, were stirring up this large coliseum filled with GOP advocates! Now, the reason that this seemed strange,ly awkward was because before I drifted off to sleep, those who were broadcasting and analyzing the results of the evening’s nationwide election activities had just reported that “The DEMS HAD TAKEN THE HOUSE BACK”! But as I listened further, I heard that #45 was congratulating himself  (and Nancy Pelosi) because the “GOP had maintained CONTROL OF The Senate!” NOW I GUESS THAT’S WHAT U CALL BREAKING NEWS, huh?  Suddenly,   someone on the stage daring  to state the OBVIOUS cried out “AMERICA IS POLARIZED!”  #uthink??? 

Ahhh Shucks! Nah, I’m not always the shiniest penny in the pocket, BUT…I could’ve told ’em dat a long time ago!  GUESS NOBODY ASKED ME, right?

But, the epiphany didn’t jus stop there! As I continued listening to ‘the WORDS DAT WERE COMING OUT OF HIS MOUTH’, IIIIII HHHEEEARRD, one of them say, “America was in a nationwide REVIVAL! Because they had followed the leading of the Lord in 2 Chronicles 7:14 by praying for the nation and supporting God’s designated 21st Century Cyrus, #45, who was bold enuff to finally set in order the things necessary to make AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, (open the way to reverse, Roe vs. Wade; keep illegal aliens out but keep NRA in place, and give RELIGION a much needed VOICE; ridding the nation of Obamacare while subsidizing THE WEALTHY at the expense of Social Security recipients; ignoring perversion, deception and manipulation while denying obvious racial injustice) THE RED WAVE WAS STILL IN PLACE! THEN...he SO eloquently and prolifically dropped da bomb announcing, that THE RED WAVE was symbolic of a THE BLOOD OF JESUS sweeping across this nation!  SERIOUSLY! #OMG! #WHO KNU, right?

BUT! CALL ME IDIOTIC OR BI-POLAR if U want, but I’m gonna stick with THE BOOK! LET EVERY MAN BE A LIAR AND GOD B THE TRUTH! TRUST2KNO2, THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM, MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUST! AS 4 ME AND MY HOUSE, WE SHALL CONTINUE 2 SERVE THE TRUE AND LIVING GOD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH! Datz my story and I’m sticking with IT!

WELL, I GUESS…NOW U KNOW! #WOW!!! POLARIZING, huh? #ijs WAKE UP AMERICA!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
