SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT! #WOW!

Welcome to the 1st Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting of this New Year, 2019! When I think of The GOODNESS OF JESUS, AND ALL THAT HE’S BROUGHT US THRU AND KEPT US IN THE MIDST OF, out of the depths of my innermost being, I cry, ‘ BLESS THE LORD, O MY SOULL, THANK GOD 4 SAVING ME!’ Do I have a witness? Let’s begin this year seeking The Face of The Almighty God and Worshiping Him in the Beauty of Holiness! Shall we pray…

“Unto Thee of O Lord, I lift up my soul in Worshipful Adoration! If thou withdraw Thine Self from me, where, O where shall we go! For there is none like Thee. For No other God we know, none else to save us; none else to heal us, none else to deliver us…BESIDES THEE! For You deserve the GLORRAA AND THE HONOR, I LIFT MY HANDS TO THEE…FOR YOU ARE GREAT! AND YOUR MIRACLES ARE GREAT! THERE IS NO ONE ELSE LIKE THEE…THERE IS NO ONE ELSE LIKE THEE…”
Our Father and our God, we come before You again, delighting in Your Presence, rejoicing in Your Lovingkindness and resting in Your Tender Mercy, confident that You have beckoned our hearts to seek You First, The King of kings and Lord of lords, trusting that You are The Source and Sustainer of all that we shall ever need! We bow humbly before Your Throne of Grace with joyful expectation that You Who keepeth Israel, neither sleeps nor slumbers, but watches over us who place our personal trust in You Alone, as the apple of Your Eye! You are our Salvation, our Shield, our Rock of Refuge and our Redeemer; You shall cause Your Face to shine upon us, dispensing favor into every area of our lives to a thousand generations! Therefore, we shall forever lift our hands to You in total praise!

We thank You Lord Jesus for bringing us through 2018 victoriously! For we recognize that Satan was on our track 365 days scheming and plotting to steal, kill and destroy those who have committed our lives to serve You faithfully as witnesses to the lost and demonically infested nations that You are The Living Savior who has defied the lure of sinful fleshy lust, robbed the grave of it’s victory and defeated the sting of death, having satisfied the price and penalty of our sin through Your Sacrificial Atoning Blood, Death, Burial and Resurrection, has opened up The Way of Truth and Eternal Life to all who will accept Your Saving Grace, reconciling humanity back unto rightful relationship with The Creator of All Living!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we stand before You, gratefully acknowledging that it is nothing that we had, spoken in word, thought or deed that could ever warrant such awemazing goodness, but only because Your Faithful Covenant Loyalty, You continue to look beyond all of our faults, frailties and flaws, instilling in our hearts The Eternal Hope of Heaven, breaking up our fallow hearts, rebuking the stubbornness of our ungodly will, draw us out of the sinking swamp of sin, You opened our blinded eyes allowing us to see Your Glory in The Face of Jesus, our Messiah we have become Children of The Most High God!

Therefore, because no man can come to the Father, except he be drawn by Holy Spirit, we ask that as Your eyes roam throughout the earth, searching and knowing the minds and spirits of all You have created, touch our brothers and sisters who have yet to acknowledge and accept You as their personal Savior and Lord !

Prick their hearts with Your Spirit of Godly Repentance, flood their minds with humility to acknowledge their need for forgiveness for rebelling against Your Holy Statutes and Commands, and grant them The Mercy and Grace to confess You as The Only means of Righteousness and Restoration while it is yet today, that they may become vessels of honor in Your Kingdom, used mightily to provoke others to surrender their lives to You!

We pray for every backslider who has allowed the enemy to deceive and ensnare them to return to a lifestyle of sin for whatever reason! Father speak to their spirits now letting them know that it’s not Your Will that any should perish and that You are waiting with Loving and open arms to receive them back to the fold!  You are The Good Shepherd, eager to show mercy and forgiveness to all who will ask out of the sincerity of a pure heart! Lead and guide them to a local church where they will be greeted and welcomed, loved and nurtured that they might live out the rest of their lives in fear and admonition, privileged to know You, personally and experientially, as The Author and Finisher of The Faithful!

Abba Father, look on all those who are going thru tests, trials, trauma and tragedy, those who are overwhelmed with fear and anxiety because of the cares and pressures of this ungodly world! Strengthen those who are struggling to hold on to their faith, encourage their hearts in Your Word that they might remain confident that even when our hearts condemn us, You Abideth Faithful Forever! Send hope to the hopeless, empower the faint, lift up the downtrodden, restore marriages, broken relationships, rebuke ungodly soul ties, remember those who have unselfishly born the heath of the day, pushed us and prayed us through dangers seen and unseen! Father, given them sweet Peace, knowing that their labor is never in vain!

Lord, we ask that You keep us as only You can! Send peace to our hearts, joy to our souls, prosperity and love  into our homes, places of employment, the market places, our schools, communities and churches! Heal wounded spirits, loose unforgiveness, release forgiveness, restore sound minds, bind confusion, chaos and uncertainty, doubt and unbelief!

Prepare us for overcoming and conquering every obstacle, hindrances, delays, failure and disappointments! Impart unto our hearts and minds that we are more than conquerors though You, and when our enemies are too strong for us to defeat, give us Restful Assurance that because Your Strength is made perfect in our weakness , no weapon that’s formed against us shall prosper because You have sworn By Your Godself, to never leave us nor forsake us, we shall continue to stand still and see Your Salvation!

Precious Lord, because of Your Sovereign Omniscience, You already know that many of Your Children have been afflicted, attacked and tormented by all manner of sicknesses and diseases. However, because Your Word declares that Jesus is The Same, Yesterday, Today and Forever, You were wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities and the chastisement necessary for our Peace was placed upon You, By Your Stripes we were healed! We speak life and healing to our spirits, souls, minds and bodies! We stand in agreement in Your Word, as decreed in James 5:15, the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well and the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven! In Jesus Name AMEN 3X!

Abba Father, we lift up our children, our grands and great-grand children and by faith, we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives and cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we realize that You also have a Plan and Purpose for their lives! Therefore, we’re trusting that You are Divinely orchestrating every step and every stop that they make, detouring and by-passing defeat and premature death! We have the Blessed Hopeful Assurance that the Peace of God is covering their spirits, souls, minds and bodies, releasing a Spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Heavenly Father, according to Your WORD, we lift up the leaders of our nation, federal and local governments, corporate, judicial, education, financial, health care institutions and our churches! As we transition into a new year, a new day, a new way and a new journey, 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 King of All Creation Who Lives, Reigns and Rules for Evermore and At The Name of Jesus, every knee shall bow and every tongue confess THAT YOU ARE LORD!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher, Missionary, Deacon, auxiliary leader/member, choir director/member, praise team and musician, usher, nurse, driver, parking attendant and custodial worker! Undergird them with Your Anointing and conviction to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people and those who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and ministry, You have ordained! Empower and encourage their hearts and minds with confident hope that He that has begun a Good Work shall Complete it unto The Lord Returns! Assure them that whatever HEAVEN STARTS, HELL CAN NOT STOP, IN JESUS NAME! IT IS SO!

Lord, save, heal and deliver speedily all who are crying out to you, seeking Your Face at this very moment! Give us to know that because we belong to You, we are never too far that You can’t see us, reach us, and shield us from anything that the devil would rail against us. Help us to understand that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower, and those that run into it and are saved! We thank You for being our Great High Priest and for listening to the hearts of everyone whose spirits are united and fervently praying with us!

Father, because our steps are being ordered by You and You have committed Your Word towards us, no trouble, test or trial can come near us, except You have allowed it to train us to live each day solely depending on You. We know that You have already  pre-ordained the specific time of deliverance and breakthrough! We thank Holy Spirit, for fully persuading us of Your Providential Presence, Peace and Power to turn everything around to work in our favor and to bring about exuberant testimonies and praises of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory!

Sweet Holy Spirit, 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. Therefore, we humbly decree believing You to FIX IT JESUS, AS ONLY YOU CAN!!

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

TRUE LOVE

SELAH Daily Devotions!

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. John 14:21

 
WOW! Faithful Obedience, huh? Honestly, this should be the very heart-cry of every born-again, Blood-Washed Child of The Most High God! After all, yall know that absolutely nothing in our personal repertoire is remotely worthy of such extravagant Loveliness that was extended towards humanity through the Sacrificial Atonement of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ! Hence, Unfailing love and Truth have met together. Righteousness and peace have kissed! (Psalm 85:10) God refused to let us go!

Yet, far too many who claim The Name of Jesus, consider the burden of denying their will in humble gratitude to The Lordship of Jesus Christ, more than they’re able to commit to for so great a Salvation! Don’t get me wrong, just about anyone will gladly run to Jesus for Fire Insurance, (Savior) but how many are willing to subject themselves to The Righteousness required by The Sovereign Creator? That’s probably what The Bible means by ‘Many are called but few are chosen’, right? (Ref. Matthew 22:14)

Of course, it’s never God Will that any should perish, however His Holiness will not allow sin to go un-judged! Strangely enough, some who confess Him as Savior in order to grab a ‘get outta-hell-free pass, think it totally unreasonable that God should expect them to live a holy and righteous lifestyle…everrry day!

Oh, you can’t always tell who they are on Sunday mornings with their hands lifted high in the air, jus like everybody else, but if you follow them home chances are you’ll hear them saying, ‘ain’t nobody perfect’ and making all kinds of excuses to justify their rebellion against the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Truthfully, only those who are driven by a personal hunger and thirst to know God intimately, will genuinely seek to please Him by putting to death the sin-lusting cravings of their fleshy appetites and surrendering to the new nature that yearns to obey His Word! Amazingly, God does not require anything of us that He’s not willing to help us to succeed! “And God is able to make all grace abound unto you; that ye, having always all sufficiency in everything, may abound unto every good work:” (2 Corinthians 5:8) #Didjaheardat? WOW! NOW THAT’S GRACE!

Quite frankly, Beloved, due to the severe limitations of my finite intellect and limited verbal ability. such awesomeness is not easily described and I find myself gasping at the mere suggestion that I AM the object of such affection. Yet this Truth encompasses my spirit, soul and body and I embrace my wholeness and completeness, as I dwell in the Presence of The All-Knowing, All-Loving, Caring, Creator-Giver, Father of All-Life! FINALLY, TRUE LOVE!

WHEN LOVE IS REAL, IT FINDS A WAY.

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday. Psalm 42:4
 
I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord. Psalm 122:1

 

Perplexing, huh? Given all the chaos, turmoil, and just plain drama that people are going thru today, why aren’t all of our churches packed out, every service? When so many people’s minds are filled with fear, anxiety, doubt and uncertainty, why do so many stay away from the sanctuary of God’s House? Nonetheless, I’ve discovered that oftentimes when our hearts become overwhelmed by the woes of life, the absolutely last thing some of us want to do is actually the very first thing we ought to do–fellowship with our brothers and sistas in Christ! Am I right about it?

 
The Psalmist, understood how to survive his soul’s dis-eases—the times when the cares of his world left his spirit cast down, unsettled, and wearied to the point that he didn’t know what to do. David always found his answers and comfort in God’s Presence and among kindred believers!
 
The Word of God let’s us know that there is nothing, no temptation, no trial, no test that we will ever go through that somebody else has not already experienced and triumphantly overcome. (Ref. 1 Corinthians 10:13)  Yet, Satan, the Master of Deceit, wants us to think that we’re the only one who’s gone thru this. The devil feeds off of our fears and doubts to cause us to believe that our circumstances are so unique that nobody else can really understand what we’re going through.  Unfortunately,  for the carnally-minded saints, one of his most effective strategic deployment is isolation
 
BUT GOD, knowing how vulnerable we can be, always provides a way of escape. Jesus says,‘Come unto me and you shall find rest for your souls’. (Ref.Matthew 11:28) The Word of God further encourages and admonishes us to not neglect the refuge that awaits us in the sanctuary of His Church. (Ref. Hebrews 10:25) God promises an outpouring of a corporate anointing (God’s Grace) upon His people when they come together in fellowship, praise and worship. A Holy Synergy is released into the atmosphere as the people of God unite in prayer,  igniting the Divine Intervention of God’s Favor and turning our bad situations around to work for our higher good and His Greater Glory! Uuum, could that be why he works overtime to keep us from Church?
 
Well guess what, enough is enough! The next time that chump tries that, ignore him!  Getta stepp’n and say to yourself…“I was glad when they said unto me, let’s go to Chuurrch!!!”
 
Be encouraged, saints! There is strength in numbers and power in unity! Let’s Stay Together!

 

SELAH!
