SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT! AWEMAAZING!

We’re delighted that you’ve joined us once again in our Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We’re thankful to our Heavenly Father for so graciously allowing us to come before Him with our prayers, supplications, requests and inquiries and casting our cares, concerns trusting His Will to be done in our lives! As we come blessing Him for the outpouring of His Marvelous Lovingkindness, Grace and Mercy towards us,  our sincere heart cry is, “That if it had not been for The LORD on our side, our enemies would’ve swallowed us up!” For this cause, we bow before The Majestic Throne, finding Grace to help in this time of need!

Here we are to worship! Here we are to bow down! Here we are to say that You’re our God! You’re altogether Lovely, Altogether Worthy, Altogether WONDERFUL TO ME! …WE LOVE YOULORD! AND WE LIFT OUR VOICE, TO WORSHIP YOU, OH MY SOUL REJOICE! TAKE JOY, MY KING, IN WHAT YOU HEAR AND LET IT BE A SWEET, SWEET SOUND IN YOUR EAR…HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! LORD, YOU’RE WORTHY! LORD, YOU’RE WORTHY! LORD, YOU’RE WORTHY! LORD YOU’RE WORTHY….

 
Abba Father, we thankya for this day! For this is the day that You’ve made and our hearts are rejoicing in praise and adoration, eternally grateful that You’ve seen fit to bless us to be alive one more day! We know that each day that You allow us to wake up to new mercy and new grace is truly a gift from our Loving, Compassion, Covenant -keeping Heavenly Father! We bow humbly before You now, boldly proclaiming You are King of Kings and Lord of Lord! You Reign Forever and Ever more! There is none like You and there will never be any other to compare! We delight in Your Presence, for You Alone are Worthy of all praise, honor and Glory! Our lips shall forever glorify You for the marvelous things You have done in our lives! For Great is Thy Faithfulness!

We acknowledge that there’s nothing that we’ve done or ever could do to warrant all of the goodness that You continue to shower upon us! But it is our heart’s desire to present our bodies, minds, soul and spirit as living sacrifices to be holy vessels of honor, serving You through serving Your people, as the only reasonable response to such undeserved Graciousness!

We ask You to forgive us for any and everything that we’ve done, spoken or thought that was in violation of Your Holy Commandments! We’re grateful for Your Inherent Benevolent Favor, Unconditional Love, Immeasurable Patience, and awemazing Restraint that allows You to suffer with us, when Your Righteousness justifies corporal punishment, You show unrelenting Mercy to all who will sincerely repent quickly, confessing with our mouths our sin and asking You to forgive us, wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, cleansing us of all unrighteousness and restore us back into rightful fellowship with You!

Hear us as we plead, Father forgive us now, in Jesus Name! We thank You now, believing that Your Compassion has once again allowed You to look beyond the frailty and fickleness of our human frame and remember The Covenant You made with Your Word before The Foundation of The Earth that You would keep those who would commit their lives to Jesus, trusting in His Atoning Blood for the remission of our sin! In Jesus Name we pray! Amen 3x!
Father, we know that no man can come to You, except You initiate the call. We pray that as Your Spirit searches throughout the earth, seeking hearts that will yield to You, You will save our brother, save our sister who has  yet to experience The Wonders of Your Saving Grace! Break up the fallow ground, rebuke the demons of the minds, snatch that soul out of the clutches of the enemy, loose them from the snare of the wicked one and set them free, even as You did for us! Put a Spirit of Godly-Repentance in their hearts and minds that may cry out to You, “What must I do to be saved” and enable them to respond out of a “SINCERE YES LORD”,confessing You as their personal Savior and Lord!

Father, we’re grateful for Your Word that assures us that You are married to the backsliders, those who have foolishly allowed Satan to lure them back into bondage and subsequently relinquishing their home in heaven! We know that it’s difficult for us to believe that You truly want them back, but we pray now that You open up the eyes of their understanding that they might know that just as parable You’ve recorded in Your Word, of The Father and the Prodigal son, You are waiting with open arms to embrace, welcome them, forgive and restore them back to Your Fold! We thank You for piercing their hearts with the All Consuming Fire of Your Unconditional Love and flooding it with a genuine repentance and a “FRESH COMMITTED YES LORD”, directing them to a local church where they will be accepted, loved, nurtured in Your Word, Will and Way that they might become witnesses of Your Eternal Glory to a dark, lost and dying world, in Jesus Name we pray!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we gratefully acknowledge You as The Third Person of The GOD-HEAD, the Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent God with/IN us! Nevertheless, You know everything and everyone of us from the inside out! You know that while we seek to please You by faithfully trusting You in every situation!  Nevertheless since You are our Great High Priest,  having learned by experiencing the same short-falls of our flesh, having humbly submitting Your Glory and clothing Yourself  with the same flesh, You can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! Lord, You know the struggle is real!

Sometimes, our hearts and minds are overwhelmed with so much doubt, anxiety and uncertaintythat we lose or focus! Lord, You know, the effect that this society, steeped in the stench of swampy lawlessness, corruption and blatant immorality has on us! We ask that You help us to endure the things that are going on around us! Lord, while You never promised us that we would have trial-free lives in this earth, help us to endure these last and evil days! Give us confident hope-filled expectation that Your eyes are on the Righteous, You are a Very Present Help in trouble and that while weeping may endure for a night, Joy shall come in the morning!

We praise You today, for renewed strength, understanding and power that comes from a heart open to, depending and relying only on You! We thank You for the courage to stand steadfast, immovable, always abiding in The Power of Your Presence, trusting that no weapon that’s formed against us shall prosper, because You created the maker and the bow! Give us confidence that even when we walk through the valley overshadowed by danger, destruction and death, You upholdeth all things by The WORD OF YOUR POWER and The Hand of Your Righteousness! For You are Sovereign Ruler and Lord of all the living and the dead! Comfort our hearts to rest assured that nothing happens except You allow it to be so and if You allow us to experience tests and trials to prove what’s in our hearts, You are yet able to take  anything that Satan means for evil and turn it around for our greatest good and Your Highest Glory!

For You have taught us to declare that our hope is not in the temporary things and circumstances nor conditions of this world, But our Hope IS ETERNAL, and remains solidly rooted and anchored in You! Encourage our souls to continue to look Heavenward to The Hills from which comes our Help knowing that ALL of our Help comes from The LORD, The Author and Finisher of our Faith! We exalt Your Name and Your Word, high above our thoughts and our ways! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!
We pray for those who are in contentious situations in the land, in our churches, our homes, communities. We bind the spirit of exclusion and release the Spirit of Oneness! We thankya for the empowering Spirit of Agreement! We pray for those who are arrogant, selfish, self-aggrandizing, reveal yourself to them. Lord, reverse the hatred and bigotry in this land and replace it with Love and Soundness of mind! We’ll give You the Honor and Praise!

Lord, we lift up those who are going thru a season of sorrow, being victimized by bullying, institutionalized racism, tormented by Spirits of fear, rejection, disappointment and failure, church hurt, heart wounds, unforgiveness, marital problems, wayward children, divorce, lost of employment, loan/mortage defaults and bankruptcy and those who are attempting to overcome the difficulties of  a totally unjustified government shutdown!  We plead the Blood of Jesus against every demonic thought, spirits of anxiety, panic attacks, oppression, depression, dementia, chaos and confusion! 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!

Sweet Jesus, as we lift up our children, grand-children and great-grand children, help us to remember that such were some of us! But You patiently waited and trained us up in the way that we should go! Father, by faith, we decree and declare that every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them, IS HEREBY CANCELLED, and RECOILED!

As we commit them into Your providential care, we acknowledge that because Your Plan and Purpose for their lives cannot be over-ruled, we have the blessed assurance that EVERY STEP AND STOP IS BEING ORDERED UNDER THE WATCHFUL CARE OF YOUR EYES AND NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST THEM SHALL PROSPER AND EVERYTHING THAT PERTAINS TO THEIR DESTINY OF LIFE AND GODLINESS IS FULLFILLED! Therefore, WE SPEAK THE PEACE OF GOD OVER THEIR SPIRITS, MINDS AND BODIES, RELEASING A SPIRIT OF LOVE, HOLINESS AND EXCELLENCE TO FULFILL THEIR GOD-ORDAIN DESTINIES, IN JESUS NAME IT IS SO!

 

Father we lift up every spiritual leader, Apostle, Bishop, Overseer, Pastor, Elder, Preacher, Teacher, Superintendent, Evangelist, Missionary, Deacon and Deaconess who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit! We’re asking for an immediate manifestation of that special miracle for each and every one of them! We ask that You touch the leaders, the shepherds, show them how to touch, lead and guide Your people. Give them clarity of vision!  For without vision Your people peris;h therefore, we pray for Your Vision and not ours! Help us to build up one another and not tear down. Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people with honor, wisdom and favor! All who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and the GOD-ORDAINED ministry shall be rebuked and restrained by The Power of Holy Spirit. In Jesus Name!

We lift up every auxiliary leader, musician, choir, praise team, usher, nurse and lay member, trusting and believing that You will Grace them to be the Godly examples 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!

Confident that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we continue to pray for the White House, Congress, Senate and every government, legislative, corporate leader of our nation and the world! Heavenly Father, we’re asking that You visit them in the night with dreams and visions, letting them know that You, O God never sleep or slumber! Warn them that Your Eyes are going to and fro searching the hearts, minds and motives of all who have been given Power and Authority over Your people! Assure them that they shall be held accountable for every deed and decision that they make; Impress upon their spirits that, 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! In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Abba Father, as we near the closing of our prayer, we’re careful to mention those who are shut-in, hospitalized, incarcerated, going through chemotherapy and radiation treatments, dyalisis and those waiting for transplants! We lift them up before You! Remember those among us who are stricken with grief, mourning the loss of family and friends, all those whose lives are being tormented by fear, failure, poverty, unbelief, unforgiveness, doubt, anxiety, stress, mental disorder, hopelessness, shame and guilt, suicide, disappointment, rejection, broken marriages and relationships, ungodly soul ties, addictions and perverted sexual orientations!

We rebuke and renounce every and all manner of afflictions and by faith in THE POWER AND AUTHORITY OF THE NAME OF JESUS, we declare and decree immediate release be manifested in the lives and bodies! As God’s anointed, we stand in agreement that everything that does not align with Your Will is bowing, bound and cast down immediately! We call everything in the atmosphere surrounding Your Chosen, into Divine Alignment now, In Jesus Name!

Father as we wait in confidence and quietness, we’re rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in fear and shame and defeat, turning their backs 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!

Finally, Abba Father, we stand in agreement with You who hears ours prayers and forgives our transgressions as we’re shouting with everlasting joy to The One to Whom all men will come! We believe that as Your face shines upon us, You are making Your Ways and Salvation known among all nations, for You Guide and Rule justly!

Father, believing that IT IS DONE, we thank You NOW! In The Exalted Name of Jesus WE SAY Amen 3X and It Is So!

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES, SAVES AND DELIVERS! 

SELAH!

BEHOLD OUR GOD!

 

BEHOLD OUR GOD

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 prevailing gross darkness and prevalent winds of foreboding devastation and desolation in our world today, it’s no wonder that we’re stressed out, huh? Even those who have placed their faith in the Saving Grace of Jesus very souls have been vexed by the state of this nation! In answer to my prayerful inquiry, ‘Precious Lord, what’s going on?’,  I was incited by the Comforting Presence of Holy Spirit to review the words of God’s Prophet, Isaiah, speaking to the remnant of God’s Elect nation.

According to the text, once again, God’s people find themselves facing eminent danger of massive destruction, yet we hear Isaiah offering  words of warning and 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)

Saints, the first step in overcoming any challenge is to keep the main thing the main thing! 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 our faces and keep us in perfect peace just because we trust in Him! #Didjaheardat?  WOW! (Ref. Isaiah 25:8, 26:3-4)

Beloved, when life is out of your control, set your affections on The Eternal Hope of the Ages and not the temporary circumstances of this present time! Rest assured, Jesus is always in control!  God’s Word declares 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, I adjourn you to keep your eyes on Jesus, The Joy of your Salvation! 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! TRUST2KNOW, The Great and Holy One of Israel is closer than ever before! Therefore, Precious Ones, don’t be deceived by temporary circumstantial evidence! Hold on to every Promise we’ve been given by your Covenant Keeping Lord and Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.”  (Psalm 121:4)  LOOK UP AND BEHOLD YOUR GOD!

SELAH!

Good Morning Fam! GOTTA MOMENT? #ooohhhGLORRAAAA!

 

Precious Saints of The Most High God, we’re so excited that you’ve joined us today in the final Thursdays’ Corporate Fasting and Prayer for 2016!

As we entreat our Lord, we’re praying for the Saints everywhere! We understand that the enemy has launched a decree to destroy the Hope and Joy of God’s elect, particularly for the next generation! But GOD says that the violent shall pursue, recover and conquer everything that God has given us. In times like this we must remember that GOD has not left us defenseless! While The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but Mighty thru God for the pulling down strongholds! AS WE’RE PRAYING, WE’RE BELIEVING & DECREEING…

OOOOHH Sweet Wonder! Ooooh Sweet Wonder! Jesus! The Son of God! Ooooh Sweet Wonder! Ooooh Sweet Wonder! JESUS, THE SON OF GOD! FATHER, I stretch my hand to THEE! No other help I know! If THY withdraw THYSELF from me…where shall I go…
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 this day of 2016! Looking back, we know that it was no goodness of our own but solely Your Benevolence that has allowed us to yet be here to enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace! Hence, our testimony is, that while 2016 has lead all of us through many dangers, toils and snares, You have kept us, covered in Your Faithful Love! Leaning and depending on The Sovereignty of Your Omnipresence, Omniscience and Omnipotence, we’ve been able to overcome every obstacle and are yet standing!

Father, as bow, in Holy reverence before you today, we shall never fail to bless You for that Awemazing day that You touched us, opening our hearts, enabling us to recognize and receive the saving Grace in the Life, Death, Burial and Resurrection of Your Son, Jesus! We are fully persuaded that while there was absolutely nothing in us lovable nor worthy of this honor and privilege, because it pleased You, You choose us to be Your very own children!

Lord Jesus, we declare and decree that You Alone deserve all of The Glory, Honor & Praiz! For by Your Own Hand, You wrought Salvation, Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision. We’re eternally grateful that, knowing our frame,Your Faithful Compassion continuously allows You to look beyond our human frailties, faults, iniquities and failures, seeing and yet ministering to every one of our need all day every day! Hallelujah!!!!

Abba Father, as we submit our hearts to Your watchful Eye, we offer up thanksgiving laced with precious praises to You today, for we revere and extol You as The Only Wise Savior and Lord of Life! While our future remains a mystery, we have courageous confidence that by Your Grace, You have equipped us with everything that we need to carry us through the days ahead, one day at a time.
Lord Jesus, You already know everything that’s happening in each of our lives, our families, our communities, our nation, therefore, we’re so grateful that You are yet in absolute control of all things! Father while we slept safely in our homes last night, somewhere in this world there were shootings, robberies, accidents and all manner of maladies, therefore we thank You, for keeping us alive! We’re fully persuaded that even amidst these days of impending chaos, anxiety, fear, confusion, deception and destruction, the safest place in this whole world is still in YOUR PERFECT WILL!

Father, touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, high/low blood pressure, heart disease, kidney, lung failure, satanically induced depression/oppression/addictions and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. Lord, 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!

Precious Lord, we ‘re believing that while we’re experiencing an unexpected shaking of this nation and the entire world, that appears that everything is falling apart, we have Your assurance that everything is falling right in place! You are setting up a massive exodus and deliverance!

Abba Father, because no man can come to the You except you draw them, we’re believing that a Spirit of Godly-repentance is swelling up all over this world resulting in the saving of multitudes of lost souls! Those who have walked away from You are being re-claimed today and will come running back into Your outstretched arms and receive You as their personal Lord and Savior! We’re trusting Holy Spirit is imparting a ‘COMMITED YES’ in their hearts and in their minds, blessing, directing and settling them into a local church home today, where they will be encouraged, nurtured, taught and their lives transformed by The Glory of The Lord! We’re believing that all of our unsaved loved ones and friends will be saved in the year 2017 and join our Eternal Family!

Lord, we pray for all who’re going thru a season of grief due to the lost of a loved one, those whose lives have been victimized and bankrupted by divorce, lost of employment, disappointment, hopelessness and despair! We plead the Blood of Jesus over demonic suicidal thoughts, Spirits of anxiety, oppression, depression and confusion, because we know that You are not the author of these confusing demonic thoughts and feelings, but You have given us, who have put our personal trust in Your Son Jesus, Your Righteousness, Love and Joy in The Holy Ghost!

Abba Father, as we entreat Your Presence, we lift up every believer yet holding on to your Hand by faith today, that you will release a double anointing of Your Divine Peace, Power, Supernatural strength, provision, prosperity and protection. Heavenly Father, we’re trusting You to strengthen and presevere us thru every test that You’ve allowed, confidently assured that You will bring us out restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward us as You have promised in your Word! Lord, as we walk through the valleys overshadowed with death, we pray that You anoint us, for such a time as this, with supernatural confidence, courageous empowerment and an overwhelming consciousness of Your Abiding Presence and the immutability of Your Word!

Heavenly Father, according to Your Will, we pray obediently, for the leaders of our nation, government, corporate, judicial, education, financial institutions and our churches! We’re believing You will touch their minds and break up the fallow hearts, speak to them in dreams and visions, let them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens is keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!

Father, as we lift up our spiritual leaders, we’re asking a special blessing upon each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit. We pray that you will Grace them to be the examples in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love, trust wholly in and to live their lives serving You, Our Heavenly Father.

We pray, Heavenly Father, that You will stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name,  increasing their desire to make our election sure, walking circumspectly in pursuit of an even greater personal, intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father through fellowship of Holy Spirit that we might prove what is the perfect and acceptable Will of The Lord Jesus for our lives!

Father we pray that every demonic-induced spirit of fear, failure, hopelessness and disappointment be defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and a Sound-mind be released now, in Jesus Name! We’re trusting that each morning of this new year Your children will awaken with assured grace to accomplish every assignment and earnest hope-filled tomorrows!

Father we now wait in confidence and quietness, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are suddenly trembling and departing in shame and 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!

Abba Father, we stand in agreement with You Who hears ours prayers and forgives our transgressions! Holy Father, because You have chosen us and brought us near to live in Your House, we shout with joy unto The One to Whom all men will come! We bow in obedient reverence before The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us that, You are making Your ways and salvation known among all nations for You Guide and Rule justly!

Father, we thank You NOW, for WE believe that it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X and It Is So!
Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS STILL LOVES and CARES FOR THEM 2!  HAVE A HOLY, HAPPY, PROSPEROUS & PRODUCTIVE 2017!

Aba Father, because no man can come close to You, except You draw us, we ask that Your Blood-Stained Eyes continue to search the hearts of mankind, blessing all those who are crying out to You now! We also interceded on behalf of every unsaved soul, asking Lord that You quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their hearts and in their minds that they will come to you today confessing a sincere ‘YES’ to Your Grace Gift  and receive You as today as their personal Lord and Savior!

Eternal Father, we ask You to fill the hearts and minds of every backslider with a fresh ‘Committed Yes’!  Let this day be the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR church! By Fath, we’re yet believing that many of our unsaved loved ones and friends will be saved before the end of 2016 and become part of The Royal Priesthood that You have Ordained  members of Your Eternal Family! In Jesus Name Amen 3x!

Father, touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, high/low blood pressure, heart disease, kidney, lung failure, satanically induced depression/oppression/addictions and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake! Lord, we’re holding on to the Infallible WORD which decreed that the stripes that Jesus bore on His back has already redeemed and healed us! Therefore, under the Eternal Authority of our Divine Creator and Ruler of the Ages, we also declare that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name!

Lord, as we intercede on behalf of our brother and sisters, we pray that you will remember those who are being overlooked, held down and even abused by undeniable racial prejudice in this country. We’re believing You to intervene on our behalf, releasing miraculous Favor and Prosperity, unexpected promotions, opening up opportunities for entrepreneurship, increased education grants, lower interest mortgage rates, debt cancellations, book contracts and overturning legal decisions to give us the victory!

Lord, we’re praying for every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, that from the portals of The Throne Room,You are releasing a double portion of Your Divine power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection. Father!

Heavenly Father, we thank You for comforting and assuring us that regardless of who is seated in the Oval Office, Congress or Supreme court, YOU ARE ETERNALLY SEATED UPON THE CIRCLE OF THE EARTH AND ABSOLUTE POWER BELONGS TO YOU!

Therefore, as You have instructed, in faithful obedience, we lift up the political, social, judicial, business, religious leaders, trusting You to visit them in the nite seasons with visions and dreams as You touch the hearts of each one of them! Grace them to be the holy humble examples in their homes, marketplace, communities and churches that will cause those who are in their sphere of influence to love, trust and live everyday of life serving and glorifying You, Our Heavenly Father!

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. Psalm 121:4

 Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land. For I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.  Genesis 28:15 ESV

 

Whether you’ve been walking with Jesus for a long time or just recently made your decision to follow Christ, none of us are excluded from faith’s stresses, test and trials! If you don’t have a clue about what I’m talking about, may I draw from dem ol’ skool Mothers’ terminology, “Baby, jus keep getting up in the mornin’ and going to bed at night, sooner or later you will encounter a season in your life when you’ll feel as though God has left you in the valley of the shadows of death to fend for yourself!”

I understand that this kinda theology may seem a bit strange, (not to mention unbiblical, after all we live in the Dispensation of Grace) to some Millenniums who’ve been spoon fed Gospel-Lite-Prosperity pablum prepared by the more sophisticated-socially-acceptable-all-ingratiating-all-inclusive preachers! But check The Book, it’s still in there! “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:” 1 Peter 4:12

Yet! When you’re forced to trample through the turbulence terrains of this life, know, that your Heavenly Father is not a dead-beat absentee Father. God has left His Eternal Word as a Light to the 21st Century Saints! Hence, The Word of God is still well able to comfort, strengthen and encourage those who seek Him!

Precious ones, perhaps, at this reading, you find yourself smack-dab-in-the-middle of a loooonnnnggg night of overwhelming fear and anxiety,  yet Truth remains! Even when you’re unable  to trace God’s Face or feel His Hand, trust His Heart!

Sometimes, we’re so focused on the trauma of the moment that we forget that we have a real enemy who delights in secretly launching attacks against God’s elect, under the cloak of darkness with his diabolical wiles, strategically aimed to diminish your confidence and trust in God!  Nevertheless,  don’t fall for the okey-doke…Satan ain’t running nothing! Your God is Sovereignly watching over you 24/7! He never naps! Day and night are the same to Him! Every step you take is Divinely-ordered by The Lord! He’s already gone before you preparing designated rest areas along the road to revive and re-energize our spirit and soul! #Didjaheardat? IT’S TRUE!

Beloved, when it seems as if everything is falling apart, Holy Spirit says, ‘It’s falling right in place’! Abba Father is weaving each piece of your life together for your greatest good and His Highest Glory! And at the appointed time, He will flip it over to display His Magnificent Masterpiece! (Ref. Romans 8:28)

“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.” 1 John 3:2

Like Jacob, as we continue our pilgrimage through the gross darkness of this fallen world en route to the celestial city, we may all proclaim of our Savior “The God that led me all my life long” works THE NIGHT SHIFT!

PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Good morning Family! GOTTA MOMENT? Ooh Glorraa!

Welcome to a new day! Today, we’re excited that you have joined us in our Thursdays’ Day of Corporate Fasting & Prayer! Once again, we appreciate the opportunity and privilege to entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest, pouring out our hearts desires, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. We know that He delights in our embracing Him in earnest expectation, confident that He Rules Forever by His Power is able to save and deliver us from any of life’s maladies! Shall we pray?
O, Sweet Wonder! Oh Sweet Wonder! Jesus, The Son of God! Ooohh Sweet Wonder! Oh! Sweet Wonder! Jesus! The Son of God! Here I am to worship, Here I am to bow down, Here I am to say that you’re my God,You’re altogether lovely, Altogether worthy, Altogether wonderful to me!
Our Father and our God of Heaven and Earth, we come before You humbled by Your Loving-Kindness, Grace and Mercy! We’re eternally grateful for one more opportunity to behold The Glory of Your Presence! We know that it’s Your Wisdom and Strength that has allowed us to live today! We thank You for revealing to us such wondrous treasures that were hidden from our understanding, when we walked surrounded by darkness, as dead men in the earth without a God on our side!

Abba Father, it’s only because of You, that we know to cherish this day and not take it for granted as if we have a right to live! Because of You we now live, move and have our being! We come with our our hearts rejoicing, hands lifted up and our lips forever praizing You! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preseved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!
Daddy, we thank You for being The God of our Salvation, our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision. We’re thankful that because You know our frame, Your faithfulness and compassion continuously allows You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to see and minister to all of our real need!

We praise You today, for renewed strength, understanding and power that comes from a heart open to, depending and relying only on You. We praise You Lord, because no man can come to the Father except you draw them, Father, we interceded on behalf of every unsaved soul, please quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their heart and in their mind that they will come to you today saying “Yes” to your Grace Gift and receive You as their Lord and Savior! We’re believing that You will direct their footsteps and place them and settle them into a church home today.

Lord, we ask You to put a new commitment “YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider and let today be the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR church where they will submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, and learn to love and live their lives walking to please You First!

Father, we pray that you will touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. Heavenly Father, You have decreed that You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Even as you walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! Lord Jesus, Your Word declares that 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!

Lord, we pray for every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, that You will release Divine power, Supernatural strength and health, provision, prosperity and protection. Father, we’re trusting that You will preserve each and everyone of us thru the tests that we must go thru and keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that at the appointed time,You, will bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word.

Heavenly Father, we pray according to Your Will, for the leaders of our nation, corporate, judicial, education, financial institutions and our churches! We’re asking that You touch the minds and hearts, that You speak to them in dreams and visions letting them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens is keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!

Abba, we ask that You  encourage and comfort the souls of you elect who are overwhelmed with fear, doubt and worry because of the things that are going on in our personal lives and in this ungodly world systems!  Send your assurance that we are never alone, and never without Your Very Present Help!

Father, we’re thanking 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 YET HE, Jehovah Jareh, who shall supply all of their need according to Your Riches in Glory!

Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of addiction and fear 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!

Father we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shame, turning their backs 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!

Abba Father, we stand in agreement with You who hears ours prayers and forgives our transgressions! Holy Father, because You have chosen us and brought us near to live in Your House, we shout with joy unto The One to Whom all men will come! We bow in obedient reverence before The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us that, You are making Your ways and salvation known among all nations for You Guide and Rule justly!

Father, we thank You NOW, for WE believe that it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X and It Is So!

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

SELAH!

ABBA’S HOUSE

ABBA'S HOUSE 2

SELAH Daily Devotions!

“For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ” 1 Corinthians 3:11

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.” 1 Corinthians 3:16-17

 

Have you ever heard a freshly born-again believer lamenting “if I’d only known how great Salvation was, I would’ve given my life to Christ a long time ago”? While this sentiment may shriek volumes of the tremendous gratitude with which every one of us who share this awesome privilege of becoming a part of The Kingdom of God, it might be more aptly acknowledged that as difficult or challenging our life B.C. (before Christ), there’s absolutely nothing within the scope of the un-regenerated man’s spirit that inspires him to seek God on his own! In fact quite the opposite is true. Since the down fall of our original parents, in the Garden of Eden, we’ve been known to invent unparalleled manner of deviant ways of escapism to avoid submitting to God’s Plan for our lives.

Nevertheless, according to The Holy Bible, God’s Love would not be denied! Before the foundation of the world, the entire plan of Salvation was initiated in the Mind of God and through the ministry of Holy Spirit that prompts us to draw nigh to the Heart of a Loving Creator and the Atoning Death, Burial and Resurrection of Jesus Christ! Thanks be to GOD,  GOD’s Grace is made available to all who will welcome Him into their hearts and lives.

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” Ephesians 2:8

The Heavenly Father’s determination to build Himself a Sacred House, a Holy Temple, where He would dwell forever!  Sparing no expense, from the very foundation to the Chief Corner Stone, GOD continues day by day, lying new bricks! The Heavenly Father, takes particular care in adding luxuriously custom-built gold, silver and wood furnishings accentuated by exquisitely handcrafted sapphire, purple and scarlet colored silks and linen cloth tapestries, most befitting of The King of Kings and Lord of Glory, one soul at a time. Hence, while Salvation is free, it certainly wasn’t cheap!

To the absolute amazement of the world’s most renown high-class well-paid fashion experts, most of the pieces in God’s House were presumed castaways, throw-backs, out-dated, worthless and totally unsuitable for such Majestic Display! But The Master Architect/ Designer’s keenness, seeing the potential hidden treasures in the dirt covered cavernous lives of those created in His Image, digs down into the desolate places of our sin-clad spirits, picks us up out of the muck and the mire of our dark desperate pits, power washes us with the Flood of His Cleansing Blood redeems, refinishes, restoring us back into our rightful relationship as sons and daughters of The Most High God of All Creation where we now sit in Heavenly Places as Joint Heirs with The First-Born of Creation. (Ref. Ephesians 2:6)

Who knew? Certainly not the devil, or else he never would’ve crucified The Lord in the first place. (Ref. 1 Corinthians 2:8)

BUT GOD DID! CHRIST IN YOU…THE HOPE OF GLORY! WELCOME HOME TO ABBA’S HOUSE!

SELAH!
