GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? Good God Almighty!

 

Once again, we are delighted that you’ve joined us in our Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Fast and Prayer! In times like these, it’s necessary for all who believe in the WORD and WORTH of prayer, to band together, entreating the Face of our Lord, interceding on behalf of all of our brothers and sisters whose lives are being ravaged by unimaginable test, trials and devastating circumstances! We recognize that GOD, being A FAITHFUL and Compassionate Savior, will never be without a witness in the Earth! WE continue to look to the hills, from whence our help comes as we go before HIS MAJESTIC THRONE together! AMEN 3X!

 

WE NEED THEE, OH WE NEED THEE! EVERY HOUR, WE NEED THEE! OOOHHH BLESS US NOW, OUR SAVIOR! WE COME 222222 THEE! Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see; All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!” With our hands lifted up, and our mouths filled with praiz! With a heart of Thanksgiving, I WILL BLESS THEE, O LORD!”

 

Heavenly Father, we come today, In Jesus Name, first thanking You for blessing us to see one more day! While the world is celebrating Valentine’s Day, we recognize that You are The True Lover of our souls! If it had not been for Jesus’ Sacrificial Love, we’d all be condemned to the devil’s Hell! We bow before You to acknowledge that it’s only because of Your Loving Kindness and Commitment that we’re able to embrace the precious Gift of Life and one more day to enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace! We’re thankful that because You, knowing our frame, look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities yet You continue providing us our daily Bread!

 

Sweet Holy Spirit, as we embrace the day ahead, help us to continuously trust You to keep us safe from all hurt, harm and danger. Help us to make the best of each moment to glorify Your Holy and Righteous Name! Lord Jesus, clear our minds so that we can hear from You and cleanse our hearts that we may deny ourselves and obey Your Will!

 

Sweet Jesus, as we look around this nation and seeing what’s going on in world, we pray that You will hold back the flood waters, rebuke the winds and bind the hand of death an destruction! Send hope, healing, deliverance and restoration wherever it’s needed! Loose Your legions of ministering agents to meet the needs of Your people, releasing blessings and breakthroughs into their lives! Bind the Spirits of Death, Poverty and Defeat, In Jesus Name!

 

Holy Father, please help us to not whine, whimper or complain over things we have no control, and let us show our gratitude that things are as well as they are by faithfully adhering to Your Word!And whenever the cares of this world begin to close in on us, lead us into a secret quiet place where we can look Heavenward and see You Enthroned upon the circle of the Earth! When we’re pushed beyond our limited abilities, let Prayer be our 1st response and not a last resort! Give us the mind to bow before Our Great High Priest, releasing our burdens and casting our cares upon the Only Wise God and Savior! We know when we do that our hearts are comforted and our souls are calmed by the reality that even when we can’t find the words to pray, You’re yet able to listen to our hearts, interpreting every moan, groan and sigh of our spirits and release relief to our souls!

 

Abba Father, bless us that we may be a blessing to others. Keep us strong that we may help the weak. Keep us uplifted that we may have words of encouragement for others. Help us to be an effective witness and to pray for all who don’t believe that You sent Jesus, not to condemn us, but to convict us and to free us from the power, pain and penalty of Sin.

 

Precious Jesus, we pray for Your children everywhere, for every family member and friend, w believing and decreeing that a Spirit of Peace, Unity, Love, Hope and Joy is being released in our homes, places of employment, schools, communities, nation and churches! We believe that Divine Favor is being poured out upon everyone who needs You and their faith is rising to a level that they shall be faithful and obedient to Your Word! Father, bless all of us who have made up in our minds, ‘COME WHAT MAY,’ we will sacrifice OUR will on The Altar of YOUR Will, expecting that You will reward us with supernatural abundance in every area of their lives!

 

We thank You for hearing the hearts of those who have never accepted Your Son Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord! We believe that Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart with a sincere YES” allowing them to come to You, humbled by Your Unconditional Love, in obedience to Your call and are now receiving Your Mercy and Grace to Save. We Thank You for leading and guiding them to their designated local church, planting them in Your Vineyard, where they shall be welcomed, loved, taught and transformed by Your Word of Life to take their position in The Kingdom of Heaven.

 

We pray for all those who have walked away from The Ark of Safety! Father, arrest them In The Holy Ghost, convict them to declare airrevocable committed YES” to Your Purpose for their lives! Because You Alone are The Hope of This Life and The Life to come, let today be their day to come back to You and back to YOUR church where they will restored as they submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, and learn to love and live their lives walking to please You First!

 

Abba Father, we’re lifting 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 ! We cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, realizing that ‘such were some of us’, however, at the appointed time You snatched our lives out of the pit of destruction. We thank You Sweet Jesus, that You also have a plan and purpose for their lives! Therefore, we have the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are being ordered by Your eyes, no weapon that’s formed against them shall prosper and every tongue that speaks against them is already condemned!We speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds and bodies. releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Heavenly Father, as commanded by Your WORD, we pray for the leaders of our nation, federal/local government, corporate, judicial, education, financial, health care institutions, military, public service workers and our churches! 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! Believing that their hearts are in Your Hands, they are being continuously opened to hear and obey Your Will! We bind principalities powers, rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness in high places, every demonic strongman over this nation and the world. We shut down every ungodly portal and disable every line of communication that attempts to hinder the effectual fervent prayers of the Righteous and The Word of Truth! We’re yet 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, in the Name Lord Jesus

 

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 decimate their faith, faithfulness and ministry that You have ordained! By faith in Your ability to establish our words, we release warring angels to annihilate spirits of witchcraft, false religions, prophets, teachers, deceptive spirits, perverted soul ties, curses, occult powers and the spirit of anti-Christ, in Jesus Name! AMEN 3X!

 

Abba, You know the frailness of our flesh, and how easily we’re provoked, tempted to lose our focus and become overwhelmed by the cares of this world! Sometimes our hearts are burdened with the pressures of this life, wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness and disease, financial debt, marital issues, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions, insecurities and grief, Father remember us! Lift up the widows, the caretakers, the downcast who have born the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through! Lord, give them sweet Peace knowing that their labor is never in vain! Lord, keep us as only You can!

 

Precious 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 Adversary 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! Heavenly Father, we thank You for listening to the hearts of everyone whose spirits are united and fervently praying with us!

 

Father, because the our steps are being ordered by You, we walk confident that 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 thank Holy Spirit, for fully persuading us of Your Supernatural PRESENCE, Power, Strength, Health, Encouragement, Provision, Prosperity and Protection! Keep us constantly aware that Christ in Us Is The Hope of Glorraa!

 

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, 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!

SLAVE 2 HOPE!

African black hands in chains on white

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”…being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. Romans 4:18, 21

 

Do you remember, as a child, ever being warned by your parents (supposing to avoid the pain of disappointment),“Don’t get your hopes up”? For many of us, the devil was laying a foundation for years of pessimism, doubt, unbelief, hopelessness, low self-esteem, depression and despair! WOW! Who Knu?

Ever wonder why God told us not to walk by our feelings? Well, if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably accumulated enough regrets, as a result of poor choices you’ve made listening to your fickle-feelings, to realize how irrational flesh can be, huh?

Let’s set the record straight! Sometimes, it’s difficult to ascribe a tag to feelings; feelings jus are! Directed by proper motivation, feelings are good! That’s why we need the Spirit of Discernment! Remember, when out of no where, you felt that bleep that kept on bleeping up  out of your spirit and something told you…‘don’t go that way, stop right now and turn around or call so-and-so, pray for him now?’

Unfortunately, more often than not, we’re tempted to dismiss things if it doesn’t fit within the realm of our logic. Kinda like Moses’ first response to the burning bush! Yet, something pricked his curiosity to closely investigate and ultimately leading him into a personal encounter with The Supernatural Almighty God!

Abram over-ruling emotions and human reasoning, choosing to consider not what he could see (circumstantial evidence) but rather believed and reached for what was not seen! That was faith, yall!

Now, the world looks at this and calls it foolishness, weakness and denial! However, the scriptures reveal that Abram was clearly aware that except by Divine Intervention, it was impossible for a 100 year old man and a 90 year old woman to conceive and birth a child! Because God does nothing in the earth until He gets a man to come into agreement with Him, have you ever wondered what if Abram and Sarai had continued to jus laugh off the promised as an impossible pipe-dream, if perhaps…???

No doubt over the next 25 loonnng years, Abram faced many demonic challenges tempting him to give up his hope of  living to see the manifestation of such a miraculous feat. Yet, against all hope, Abraham hope on! Oooh Glorraa2GAWD! God testified that because Abram believed that His God had the power to shift nature and call those things that be not as though they were, Abraham received the Promise and thus became the Father of our faith!

Howeverrr, how often have we insisted upon ignoring that still small voice of conscience to satisfy feelings of our own lusting, self-centered emotions driven by fear of ‘What if and What’s in it for me’? Even if it means forfeiting our Hope and God’s Peace?  OMG! The next time, perhaps we need to re-think before we act on them, huh? #ijs

Beloved, HONESTLY! This walk of faith that GOD EXPECTS is NOT REALLY all that unreasonable when your HOPE is firmly rooted and ground in Jesus Alone, consistently trusting, wholly relying upon HIS Supernatural Grace 2 strengthened us 2 walk out our faith, looking unto JESUS, obeying HIS teachings and patiently awaiting HIM 2 fulfill every Promise that HE has ever spoken over our lives! #Didjaheardat?

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

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!

And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb; He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what He had promised, He was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. Romans 4:19-22

 

As a remnant of the 20th Century Church, at the ripe ol’ age of 60 sumptin’  I’ve lived long and experienced and seen enough to have a much clearer understanding of why The God of The Bible adamantly commanded His Chosen Ones to resist amalgamating with those outside of covenant relationship with Him. (Ref. 2 Corinthians 6:17) And some of us thought that God just wanted to keep us from having any fun, huh?  Considering the way this world is headed, now we see the consequences of not distinguishing ourselves from unbelievers. Apparently, Father still knows best, huh? #SERIOUSLY

Unfortunately, many who profess Christ, remain double-minded and straddling the fence! I can only assume their current stance is peculiarly depending on the group they happen to be in the midst of. Of course, God never intended for us to strut around robed in a spirit of self-righteous-arrogance, with our noses in the air, as if we are somehow better than anybody else! Howeverrrr, spiritually speaking, as recipients of God’s Amazing Grace, it does make us better-off! Oh no she didn’t!!! OOOHHH YES, I DID!

What’s the matter Zion? Are we allowing the hourly massive influx of social-media reports of wide-spread chaos leave us so traumatized by predictions of doom and gloom that they have muted our praise and drained us of  ANY Hope? If we’re walking around with our heads hung down and hearts inundated with fear and anxiety; worried about how we gonna make it, then what separates us from the Gentiles? Don’t shout me down, nah?  #IJS…

Abraham,  God’s Proclaimed ‘Father of faith’, found himself in a seemingly hopeless situation. Not surprisingly, Abraham tried to fix the problem by himself. He ended up with an Ishmael (the child of the flesh) when God intended to give him Isaac (the child of Promise)!  Finally, after the drama and chaos had escalated to the point that Sarah gave him an ultimatum (it’s either her or me) suddenly, Father Abraham had an epiphany, ultimately resigning to the one viable conclusion, “the only hope that I have of this thing ever working is Divine Intervention.” In other words, “Lord, without YOUR GRACE, I can’t do this!”

OMG! Can we ever identify with Abraham! How many times have we been in a situation and we tried and tried, we cried and cried, murmured and complained, spent all we had and still came up short? It was not until we, like Abraham, made a conscious decision to stop depending on our inability, started relying on God’s Ability and turned it over to Jesus, that our hope was revived!

As the text says, when all human reasoning for hope was exhausted, Abraham hoped on and God brought life into his dead situation. (Ref. Romans 4:17-18) Hence, when we come to the end of ourselves, God steps in and does what seemed impossible!

Stop listening to that devil telling you, “it’s too late, you might as well accept the situation for what it is –eminent defeat!” He’s still is and willl always be a LIAR and THE FATHER OF LIES! My precious saints, don’t allow your present (temporary) circumstances cause you to doubt the Faithful Power of God’s Eternal Word. Why settle for seconds?  #ijs If you are Abraham’s seed, you are the heirs of righteousness! #didjaheardat? WOW!

Lift up your heads, O Ye Gates! You have been  ordained, anointed and authorized as agents of change! SO, gird up the loins of your mind AND walk this thang out, confident, courageous and fully persuaded that SINCE YOU ARE IN CHRIST, THE CHRIST IN YOU automatically gives you a Supernatural advantage over natural consequences! (Ref. Colossians 1:27; 2 Corinthians 2:14)

TRUST2KNO, EVERYTHING GOD STARTS, HE COMPLETES! (Philippians 1:6) AND WHATEVER GOD PROMISES, HE IS WELL ABLE  AND WILLING 2 PERFORM! 

PRECIOUS ONE,  JUS LET IT GO, REMEMBER…EVEN IF I CAN’T, GOD CAN!

I have set the Lord always before me, because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.  Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoiceth; my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine holy one to see corruption. Thou wilt show me the path of life; in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:8-11

 

It’s often being said that these are the times that try men’s souls. And given the traumatic state of events that are happening in the world today, undoubtedly we must agree. But as Saints of the Most High God, we have this Blessed Assurance whispering to our souls  “Peace Be Still” for ‘come what may’ our times are yet in the Mighty Hands of our Lord and Savior!

God, our Heritage, has secured Divine Peace and Joy unspeakable for whosoever that will keep their minds focused on Him by continuously abiding in His Presence. (Ref. 1 Peter 1:8)

The Bible commands us to “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus”, (Philippians 2:5) Hence, through the assistance of  Holy Spirit we have the power to stop yielding your mind to anxiety, fear, doubt, unbelief and worry.  When we allow these Satanically-induced responses access to our spirit, we give the adversary too much undeserved glory! Instead of meditating on the problems and cares of this world, we must strive to do like The Psalmist David,  by reminding ourselves that whatever circumstances we find ourselves; we are never outside the reach of The True and the Living God!

Be vigilant and watchful! Don’t sanction the enemy’s unlawful entrance to plant intimidating images in your mind!  Our thoughts, if left unrestrained, will become our words, and our words become our reality! The Bible admonishes us to quickly discipline, to bring under subjection, our thoughts and every spoken word, to the obedience of the Spirit of Christ. (Ref. 2 Corinthians 10:5)

What does God say about this situation? The Father of Grace and Peace has told us to not allow your hearts to be troubled. (Ref. John 14:1) He has your back! He is your Shield and your Buckler. (Ref. Psalm 18:2) There is safety in His Arms. He has both the authority and power to keep you. In the Presence of our Faithful Savior we find Eternal Pleasures. In His Presence, is Rest and Hope. Under the Shadow of His Wings is protection. (Ref. Psalm 16:11)

It’s not enough to just memorize the scriptures, but we must put His Word into practice by acknowledging His Presence. As we delight in His Presence and keep His Word in the forefront of our thoughts, we will not be so easily moved by our circumstances.

As we abide in the stillness of confident trust in The Omnipresent Creator and Omnipotent Sustainer of the universe, we’re covered by Glorious Presence of our Lord!

And the effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever. Isaiah 32:17 (ESV)

Now unto Him that is able to keep me from falling and to present me faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy. To the only wise god my savior be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen  And so it shall be established. (Jude 1:24-25)

BELOVED, Jesus is calling you to put your faith to work! JUS 2 B CLOSE 2 HIM; IS MY DESIRE, right? ENTER INTO HIS GATES WITH THANKSGIVING AND HIS COURTS WITH PRAIZ! GO ‘HEAD…PRACTICE HIS PRESENCE!

“And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead…and the deadness of Sarah’s womb…” (Romans 4:19)

According to the rules regulating our Judicial System, the Presiding Judge is authorized to determine whether evidence that has been presented during the trial is admissible or inadmissible. It then becomes the jury’s charge to determine the guilt or innocence of the defendant. According to the Judge’s instructions, the jury’s decision must be based solely upon deliberation of the factual information introduced during the proceedings that has been conclusively substantiated.

When God told His Friend, Abram, that he was going to be the father of a great nation, He  called him outside and instructed him to look up to the heavens and count the stars and  declared to Abram “so shall your descendants be.”  The text goes on to say, “Abraham believed God and God reckoned Abraham to be righteous.” (Genesis 15:2-6)  Evidently, the only admissible evidence that Abraham was allowed to consider was The Word of God and the stars in the heaven. Everything else was merely circumstantial! Seriously!

“He did not waiver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully persuaded, convinced that what God had promised He was also able to perform.” (Romans 4:-20)
 
Think about this—JESUS—is your Public Defender—His BLOOD is your only witness—and whatever evidence that the devil is trying to introduce against you—the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE (your Heavenly Father) has already deemed—inadmissible!  Didjaheardat?  …WOW!!
 
Beloved, God is calling you out today! Stop fretting over the circumstances, just change the channel! Look up and consider not! In other words—Focus your faith on The Faithfulness of Jesus and The Immutability of His Word!

The sky is the limit of what you can have and be! ALL ELSE…DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!

SELAH!
 
Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

DIVINE INTENT

DIVINE INTENT

SELAH Daily Devotions!

“Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?”
Isaiah 43:13

“They” say that The Holy Bible contains the words ‘fear not’ 365 times! That’s means there’s one for every day of the year. Apparently, the Holy Spirit is determined to convey how vital it is that believers maintain a certain stance of courageous faith in light of the imminent threats that shall come upon us to challenge our trust in God’s Sovereignty!

Jesus, The  WORD Incarnate, testifies that just as the world hated him they shall also hate us who have committed our personal faith and trust to Him . Yet, despite of the hostile environment in which we live, our Lord Jesus says, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)

Yeah, that sounds good BUT! I hearya, ‘but I’m mortal and Jesus is God!’ Exactly! Satan, the Master of Deceit, never wants us to get this revelation. The enemies of God’s people are the enemies of God; therefore the devil has never nor shall he ever be a threat to GOD or God’s people! Didjaheardat? Bamm devil, the WORD is out!

Even on Satan’s ‘bestest’ day, it’s absolutely impossible for him to frustrate The Divine Will of God! The most wicked malicious contrivance of evil men are but a drop of water against the volcanic eruptions emanating from the finger-tips of The Almighty Hand of God! Hence, irregardless of how long—no matter how early in the morning and how late in the night, your enemies spends scheming against God’s elect, it’s always too short and to weak to stay the arms of El Shaddai!

God does not need any one or thing’s permission or approval to bless you! When God intends to bless you, who can stop Him? What God blesses no man can curse! Remember Balak? (Ref. Numbers 22) God is not intimidated nor deterred by the daunting eyes of your adversaries. While they’re plotting against a child of God, He’s already prepared to bless you right in front of their angry faces. “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Psalm 23:5

Truth be told, there’s nothing like eating a Porter House steak in front of someone who doesn’t want you to have a bologna sandwich, right? Can’t you just see the envy in your enemy’s eyes—not to mention how shamefully powerless they are to block your blessing? Talk about messed up, huh? The Lord of Hosts sits upon the circle of the whole earth, declaring to the world His Counsel against which nothing shall stand! No wonder Jesus says, ‘cheer up’! Oh Ggggllloooraaaaa!!!

Beloved, don’t be anxious about a thang! (Ref. Philippians 4:6) God has purposefully set up every circumstance you will ever experience to ensure that there are witnesses to the miraculous deliverance that He’s about to perform in your life! He will never leave your destiny in the hands of any other than Godself! (Ref. Jeremiah 29:11)

Rest assured, when JESUS SAYS YESSSSS—NOBODY CAN SAY NO! THAT’S WHATCHA CALL DIVINE INTENT!

SELAH!

“Have a WONDER-FILLED day!”
