GOOD MORNING Saints of The Most High! GOTTA MOMENT! AWEMAAZIN!

We’re so glad that you’ve joined us in our Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We’re living in perilous times that vex even the souls of God’s Elect, nevertheless The Holy Bible promises that the effectual fervent prayers, of those who trust in The Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, shall make tremendous power available to prevail in the day of adversity!  Let us enter into His Presence with songs of deliverance…

Just another day, that The Lord has kept me! Just another day, that The Lord has kept me! He has kept me from all evil, with my mind stayed on JESUS! Just another day….that….The Lord….Has kept me!  He’s a WONDER, in my soul, He’s a WONDER, in my soul, He’s a WONDER, IN MY SOUL, BLESS HIS NAME! HE’S A WONDER, IN MY SOUL…HE’S A WONDER, IN MY SOUL, HE’S A WONDER, IN MY SOUL…BLLLLEEEEESSSSSS, BLESSSSS, BLESS HIS NAME! Let’s pray…
Abba Father and The Almighty GOD, as we bow our heads and our hearts, we give honor to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ thanking You for the privilege that’s so graciously afforded us to enter into Your Throne Room finding Mercy and Grace to help in the time of need! Confident that You welcome us, we rejoice earnestly expecting that You are indeed listening to our prayers!
Heavenly Father, we thank You for our being able to see, and to hear, to speak, to feel, and to taste of Your Goodness today and every day! We’re blessed because You, being Holy and Righteous, continue to be such a Loving, Forgiving GOD, and such an Understanding and Caring Father. You’ve already done so much for us, inspite of us… You keep on blessing us. Precious Lord forgive us this day for everything we have done, or said or thought that was not pleasing to You. Abba Father, we are sincerely sorry and humbly repent, asking for Your forgiveness trusting in Your Promise that You are Faithful and Just to forgive us, cleanse us in The Precious Blood of Jesus and restore our rightstanding as Your own children!

Sweet Jesus, we’re eternally grateful that because, knowing our fickled frame, Your Faithful Compassion yet allows You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to see and minister to every one of our needs!

We pray that as You receive our petitions, from hearts open to, depending and relying only on You,  that Your outstretched Hand will touch us, renewing our strength, understanding and power to do those things that please You!

As Your eyes continuously search the hearts of mankind , save the unsaved, put a sincere YES in their heart and in their mind that they will come to You  asking and receiving You as their personal Lord and Savior! Lord Jesus, reclaim every back-slider, that has for whatever reason walked away from You. Stir up a Spirit of Righteousness in their compromised hearts that provokes them to declare a truly ‘dedicated and committed YES LORD!’  Order their steps and guide them to a local church home; place and settle them where they can be welcomed, loved, nurtured, empowered and encouraged to live out the rest of their lives exemplifying Your Grace and Glory in the midst of the depraved darkness of this world! In Jesus Name, Amen 3x!

Father, by faith, we commit our children, our grandchildren and greatgrand- children into Your Providential Care! Lord, we realize that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too,  we have the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are yet being orchestrated by You! Therefore, as we lift them up before Your All-Seeing Eyes, we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds, souls and bodies, canceling every satanic plot, shutting down every portal that seeks to seduce, intice and entrap them by ungodly soul ties! We declare and decree that they shall live a full and long life as You’re release a Spirit of Life, Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God-Ordained Destiny, in Jesus Name It is so!

We speak total deliverance from every cord that would bind Your people and come against our God ordained destiny! We rebuke the enemies of our minds and thank You that nothing can stop the blessings or us from performing the GREATER WORKS You have assigned to Your Covenant Saints as You continue to strengthen and renew the Covenant of Faith! We Thankya for the courage and patience to stand, steadfast, consistent, always abounding in the work of our LORD, in Jesus Name!

We pray for strength for all who have lost loved ones, touch bodies,  touch hearts, minds, and emotions, rebuke grief and disappointment, restore the POWER and sound minds, hope and joy of our Salvation. Precious Lord, as we lift up broken marriages and other relationshps, we’re believing that You are uprooting every trace of selfishness, bitterness and resentment, vengence and unforgiveness, unfaithfulness and restoring the love that they once held for one another when they made their vows before You, their family and friends!  Prick their hearts with renewed consecrated commitment to love their spouses even as You’ve loved Your Church.  We speak healing of every wound, cast down every rebellious spirit, intervene and restore Divine Alignment in their families, homes, communities and churches!

Sweet Holy Spirit, help us to understand that failure is not final because we are Royal Priests and a Holy Nation unto You! We provoke envy of other nations who have not submitted to The True and Living GOD but who yet serve false gods! We decree and declare that You have raised us up and called us ‘MINE’! We rebuke venomous, hateful, words of racism, the Spirit of ungodly self-righteous elite, because all flesh is of one blood!

Father, we’re asking You to touch our brother, touch our sister whose bodies has been afflicted by all manner of 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 infallable WORD has decreed that the stripes that Jesus bore on His back has already redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on Your Eternal Authority as Creator and Ruler of the Agesthat the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name!

Lord, remember all those who are being overlooked, held down and even abused by social, economic, gender, ethnic and racial prejudice in this immoral world. Intervene on our behalf releasing miraculous Favor and Prosperity, unexpected promotions, opening up opportunities for entrepreneurship, increased education grants,  new homes, lower interest mortgage rates, debt cancellations, book contracts and overturning legal decisions that unjustly confine us to biased judicial systems and give us the victory!

Continue to open the eyes of our understanding so that Your people are not easily deceived and ensnared by the lust for the riches of this world but give Your People a hunger and thirst for Righteousness that causes them to seek those things which will Glorify Your Name in the earth even as it is in Heaven!  

Knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind and absolutely nothings happens in this earth that takes You by surprise, we ask that You  give us Your Peace that passes all understanding. While we may not know what tomorrow will bring, we take comfort, trusting in Your Word that You will never leave us nor forsake us! We praise and thank You for being Our Everlasting Father and King!

We lift up every spiritual leader, asking a special miracle for each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit. Father, we’re trusting and believing You to 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 live their lives serving You!

Abba Father, as You’ve instructed, we pray especially for the leaders of our nation and around the world. We lift up every coporate, judicial, education and financial institution, health care providers and facility worker, we lift up the prison systems and public and community service workers. We ask that you touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in dreams and visiions letting them know that You Who sit enthroned above The Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s hand and hearts and that they will be rewarded accordingly!  We believe that because their hearts are in Your Mighty Hands, they are continuously being opened to hear and obey Your Will. We’re standing and trusting Your Word that Decrees that The Government of this World shall rest upon Your Shoulders and that You are The Eterna King of kings and Lord of lords!In Jesus Name! Amen 3x! 

Lord, we pray for every believer who is clinging on to Your Hand, by faith today,  that You will preserve us thru the challenging days ahead, and bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised as our inheritance according to Your Word.

Abba Father,  we declare and decree that every demonic-induced spirit of fear, failure, rejection, hopelessness and disappointment is defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Soundness of mind is being released now, in Jesus Name! 

Father, we rejoice now in confidence and quietness, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayers as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

We’re trusting that each morning Your children will awaken empowered with Assuring Grace to accomplish every assignment and as they lay down, they shall rest peacefully every nite, confident of earnest hope-filled tomorrows!

Father, because we know that You are our FAITHFUL AND GREAT HIGH PRIEST, WAY MAKER, MIRACLE MAKER and PROMISE KEEPER, we thank, honor and praise You NOW, BELIEVING that every spoken and unspoken request and supplication that has been offered up before You today…shall be fulfilled at Your Divinely-Appointed time! We close this prayer with A HOLY HALLELUJAH, IN THE EXALTED NAME OF JESUS THE CHRIST! AMEN 3X!

Now, every soul that is standing in agreement, SEAL THIS PRAYER BY ENCOURAGING ONE SOMEBODY, LETTING THEM KNOW THAT JESUS DOES CARE!

SELAH!

One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision and told him, “Don’t be afraid! Speak out! Don’t be silent! For I am with you, and no one will attack and harm you, for many people in this city belong to Me.” Acts 18:9-10
Several years ago, The Grand Ole’ Church of God in Christ, came out with a slogan, guess what? Exactly! ‘I won’t be silent anymore!’  I wonder why I haven’t heard that one in a while! Especially in light of all the other voices that are bellowing out all kinds of crazy comments! #wink #wink!  Yall don’t mind granting a senior sista a few moments of folly, do you? AWESOME!

Have you noticed that every one and their cuzzins have come out of the colloquial closets, declaring and decreeing their rights. WOW! But where are the Saints? What’s the matter Zion? Perhaps, it’s got more to do with frustration and disenfranchisement than fear, huh? Them ol’ skool churrch Mothers were right! We’re living in times that will definitely try men’s souls. Seems as if everybody’s got rights…BUT THE CHURCH!

I ain’t scurred! Why are we the brunt of  such vicious accusations and slander, if we dare to uphold the moral standards clearly defined in The Word of God?  What happened to our freedom of speech rights? Why are we subjected to blatant mockery and defamation of character when we defend our Declaration of Dependance on The True and Living Creator of The Universe? #ijs The way things are going in America, we don’t know how much longer we’ll be able to freely speak-up for Jesus and not be martyred!

Last time I checked, The Holy Bible still says that there’d come a time when the people of God would be forced to make an individual conscientious decision, for Jesus I live, for Jesus I dieWell? Churrch, do we really believe The Word of God or are we pretending to fit in to get in?  Have we forgotten that the Ol’ Ship of Zion is not a cruiseliner but a battleship?  

It’s time to show this dark and dying world whatcha working with! Ain’t no where to run and no where to hide. The stage is set and the rubber is treading  the road. Timeout for playing church and teetering on the edge of the fence! You know what I mean;  “How close can you get to the world and still make it to Heaven?”  Baby, Either you’re all in THIS….OR UR OUTSIDE OF THE ARK! 

I still believe that the safest place in the whole wide world, IS IN THE WILL OF GOD!

Now, that’s just my two cents…do U, Boo!  BUT AS THE OL’ CHURRCH PREACHA USED TO SAY…AS 4 ME AND MY HOUSE….WE SHALL SERVE THE LORD!

When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. Isaiah 43:2

One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. Psalm 27:4-5

 

Aaawwwww…Fantasy! Believe it or not, that’s where many escape to when the painful realities of life become much more than a person can bear!  Perhaps, this might explain why that 1965 Classic American Sitcom “I Dream of Genie” (staring Barbara Eden and Larry Hagman) drew such a faithful following!

Week after week families gathered around their b/w TV’s anxiously gasping for any momentary retreat from the real-time burdens facing our nation. I mean who wouldn’t jump at the opportunity to have anything their heart desired suddenly appear simply by swiping a lamp, right?  Yep, those were the good ol’ days, huh?  I suppose that’s what He mean’t by “LET’S MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, too? #WOW!

History records President Lyndon B. Johnson struggling to lead the nation through a multiplicity of vexing controversial challenges and at the same time maintain some semblance of the homeland security that many cleaved to so dearly.

Remember, The First Combat Boots landing in Viet Nam and the Dominican Republic, the arrest of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King along with 2,600 others in Selma Alabama for demonstrating against voter-registration rules. Malcom X was shot to death in a Harlem rally, while the newly recognized Afro-Americans were rioting in Watts others were rudely awakened to the undeniable existence of racism in The Land of the FreeYep! Yep! #thoseweredadays!

The point is, despite the torrid winds of time, we survived!

Truthfully, as long as we live and breathe on this earth, there will be storms of adversity. In today’s scripture text, the Psalmist offers a brilliant ray of confident hope, strength and encouragement to those who yet contend for the faith found only in an intimate personal relationship with The God of all flesh.

Having been victimized by jealously, hatred and malicious rejection from those closes to him on numerous occasions, David sticks out in history as a true, honest, God-revealing companion to the desperate and down casts. A recap of God’s servant’s life depicts one who repeatedly finds himself besieged by fear, doubt, betrayal, death and isolation from human kindness. Yet in the midst of chaos, terror and tragedy, The Shepherd boy/King, David discovers the Source of true solace under the watchful care of His Sovereign Lord!

 

Beloved, we’re living in a day in time where it’s easy to get caught up in the daily grind of hussle and bustle, striving for the world’s standards of successful accomplishments and accommodations! However,  in spite of those poignant pathetic prophetic voices declaring peace and prosperity, sometimes we are left trembling and shaken by the inscrutable ungodliness of the systems of this world! 

Nevertheless, the Prophet Isaiah reaffirms The Eternal Promise of The Covenant-Keeping Creator and Sustainer of All Life  offers comfort to souls weired by the tremors of unexpected intrusive earth-quaking episodes that befall the saints as well as the sinners! Come what may, TRUST2KNO, WE ARE NEVER ALONE! GOD IS ALWAYS AS CLOSE AS A WHISPERED PRAYER from a BELIEVER’S TRUSTING HEART! #Didjaheardat?

Beloved, as we keep our eyes pointed HeavenwardThe God of All Comfort has delared that we too will be blessed, revitalized and restored by that Peace that passes all understanding, swept over by the unspeakable Joy and resting assured in the Presence of the One Savior and Lord that David delighted in, Jesus Christ! THE PERFECT ANSWER TO EVERY STORM!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

GOOD MORNING FAMILY! GOTTA MOMENT? GREAT GOD ALMIGHTY!

We’re so glad that you’ve joined us in our Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Fasting and Prayer! What an awesome honor and privilege our Heavenly Father has allowed us to leave the daily grind of chaotic drama and slip into His Presence, finding treasures of unspeakable solace that this world knows not of! Shall we enter in together?

Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me! Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me! Melt me, mold me, fill me, use me! Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me… Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on us! Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on us! Melt us, mold us, fill us, use us, Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on us! Lord, I hear of showers of blessings, Thou art scatt’ring full and free! Showers of thristy souls refreshing! Let some drops now fall on me! Even me, Lord, even me! Even me, Lord, even me! Let some drops; Let some drops! Let some drops, now fall on me! Even me, Lord! Even…me!

 

Our Father and our God, here we come again! We come into Your Presence delighted by the earnest expectation that in Your Presence is The Fullness of Joy; at Your Right Hand are pleasure forevermore! We wanna say Thankya for being A Great God! We Thankya for being a Mighty God! We Thankya for being a Good God! Thanka for Loving us so! We Thankya for being our Creator and our God! We Thankya for being the Source and Sustainer of every living creature! None else is Worthy! None else to compare, none else to worship; none else to Save us! None else to Deliver us! None else to Heal us! None else to Keep us! For You ALONE ARE GOD!

Abba Father, we Thankya for waking us up one more today to enjoy the freshness of Your Amazing Grace, Tender Mercy and Lovingkindness and Compassionate Care! We acknowledge that it’s because of Your Faithfulness that we were able to sleep thru last nite and it’s this same Blessedness that will shield, strengthen, comfort and carry us throughout this day! There’s absolutely no doubt that nothing we did or ever could do that would make us deserving of so GREAT A SALVATION! For this cause we bow, in Holy reverence before Your Throne of Majesty! For You Are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords forever and ever! Amen!

Heavenly Father, we pause now, to say Thankya for sending Your Son Jesus to die for us, paying the price to free us from eternal death and hell, forgiving us,  enabling us to be reconciled, engrafted into Your Kingdom as adopted sons and daughters, inheritors of the same rights, privileges and benefits as Your First Begotten, Lord Jesus!

Precious Lord, we will be eternally grateful for Your Unconditional Love that continuously permits You to look beyond our frail, flawed, fickled and sin-lusting flesh to forgive us, cleanse us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, restore us to a right-relationship and planting us firmly in Your Word provide everything that we will ever need pertaining to life and godliness in this world and the world to come!

Jesus, we know that You already know everything about every single one of us, because You are Omniscient and Omnipresent, but because You walked among us, allowing Yourself to be tempted at all point as we are, You learned what we experience in these earthly tabernacles and therefore You can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! As our Great High Priest, You are uniqely qualified to intercede on our behalf; continuously searching and conveying the thoughts, intents, emotions and physical weaknesses that we’re often unable to articulate to The Father of All Grace, Compassion and Comfort! We Thankya Lord, for being our Very Present Help!

Sweet Jesus, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word, You know that sometimes, it’s difficult to over-ride the noise of the pestilence, the chaos of uncertainty and the pain of condemnation, guilt, and shame that seems to lure us into the valleys shadowed with danger, fear, anger, bitterness, anxiety, hopelessness and self-doubt! That’s why we gladly run to You, daily, to find the refuge, peace, restoration that You have prepared for any who would come to You in hope-filled assurance that You will never deny Your Word!

Heavenly Father, we’re forever blessing You for continuing to renew our strength, understanding and power as we open our hearts to You,  depending and relying only on You. And as we yield our being before you, we pray for those who are unsaved, we’re believing You to ignite a spirit of Godly-repentance that they may say “Sincere YES” in their heart and mind that they will have a desire to come running to You today and receive You as their personal Savior and Lord!

Lord, we’re believing You to put a “Committed YES” in the hearts and minds of every backslider today that this will be their day to come back to You and come back to YOUR church where they will be nurtured in The Way of of Holiness, empowered to live the rest of their lives as beacons of Hope to a lost and dying world!

Father, we’re praying that You will touch our brother, touch our sister who has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, high blood pressure, low blood pressure and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake! We come into agreement with your Word and declare 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! And as You are strengthening these, we ask that you also invigorate, encourage and replenish the spirits, minds and bodies of those who are charged to care for their loved ones!

Precious Lord, as always, we pray for every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, trusting that You will release Divine power, Supernatural strength, consolation, health, provision, restoration in marriages, prosperity and protection. We pray also Father, that You preserve us thru every test that You have Sovereignly summoned us to go thru and keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE, convicted and fully-confident that Your appointed time, You shall bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with every reward as You have promised in Your Word.

Abba Father, we lift up our children, our children’s children and by faith, canceling every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them, committing them into Your Providential care! We realize that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too and we have the blessed assurance that every one of their steps and stops are being ordered by Your eyes!

Father, stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name ! Give them a fresh anointing that will cause them to seek Your Face for an even greater personal, intimate relationship with their Creator God through fellowship of Holy Spirit that they might prove what is the good, perfect and acceptable will of The Lord Jesus!

Father we lift up every spiritual leader, asking an immediate manifestation of that special miracle for each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit. Jesus, we’re trusting and believing 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 with You, trust wholly in and commit to live the rest of their lives serving You!

Knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying and thanking You for the government/legislative/judicial/armed forces/public service employee/ health-care providers/educational system and corporate leaders of our nation and this world! Heavenly Father, we’re praying that You will visit them in the night seasons with dreams and visions, warning them 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!

We’re asking that You endow the hearts of the saints with a peace that surpasses all understanding and the confident expectation that our times are in Your Hands! Regardless of the deceitfulness of this world, You have promised to protect, provide and preserve the righteous who trust and obey Your Word! Give us a sign of Your Goodness, that our enemies may see it and be put to shame. For You, Who searches minds and hearts will continue to shield, help, comfort and save those whose hearts are upright before You!

Father, we believe that every demonic-induced spirit of temptation, addiction, oppression, depression, rejection, self-hate, suicide, fear and failure is already defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness is being released now, in Jesus Name!

Father, we now rejoice in confidence and quietness, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat! We praise You, confidently assured that You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayers as sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy, You will not withhold Your Mercy from us and Your Love and Your Truth is a wall around us!

Abba Father, we revere, honor and praise You now, for we trust and believe that In The Exalted Name of Jesus it is done! Amen 3X and IT IS SO!

SELAH!

AIN’T DAT GOOD NEWS?

AIN'T DAT GOOD NEWS 3

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Mornin Yall! Have I evvrr got some good news 4 u! No, seriously, check this out!

So we are Christ’s Ambassadors; God is making His appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “COME BACK TO GOD!” For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:20-21 
WHOAAHHH! Didjaheardat?

That’s the Gospel of Jesus Christ! God has made a way for us to be saved from the just penalty of our sin 4 evvvrrrr! I mean, once and for all! I know, sounds too good to be true, BUT IT IS! 

Beloved, Jesus took our place and now all that is required for us to come back into right relationship to God is prayerfully confessing with our mouths…AND True hearts“FATHER I DO! I need a Savior… try as I might, I can’t save myself or live good enough to deserve Your forgiveness; but at Your Word, I humbly receive the sacrifice of JESUS, in my stead. With all of my heart, I now ask You to forgive me for my sin and make me Your child forever!” In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!”

Now precious one, if you sincerely believe that Jesus is The Son of God, Who loved you so much, that He freely shed His Blood, went thru HELL and three days later was resurrected from the dead, to ransom you back from the clutches of the Kingdom of Darkness, Death and Destruction, then guess what? IT’S A DONE DEAL!

TRUST2KNO, U R SAVED! WELL, DO U?

Unless you were born late last nite, or jus arrived on planet Earth, early this morning, you already know it’s getting darker and darker out there! #ijs! If you never needed God before, you sho nuff need HIM now, huh? Now ain’t you glad that the offer’s still on the table? Yesssirreee!  DATZ GOOD NEWS!!!

Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. Jude 1:24-25

For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief. Proverbs 24:16

 

LIES! LIES! AND MORE LIES!

Isn’t is jus annoying?  I mean, the constant bombarding of your mind with those pesty intimidating thoughts, strategically designated to taint your perspective and sabotage your peace. Unfortunately, sometimes, the video has been playing in our minds for so long, we just might get confused and start to believe that it’s prophetic, huh? Satan, aka da devil, knows fully well that he has absolutely no power to stop what God has planned for your future, yet, he’s determined to strip us of the Hope and Joy of our Salvation!

However, regardless of his deceptive tactics, Saints we must know that Satan is NOT God!

Since his first encounter with our foreparents, Adam and Eve, he’s become quite adept in manipulating our thoughts causing us to question the Faithfulness of God! How? Well, one of his favorite methods is using our Memories to provoke guilt, shame and self-unworthiness! You do know he’s been studying you from the moment you showed up in the earth, right?

Ever notice how the devil keeps bringing up your past mistakes and failures, reminding you of what you did and accusing you about what you should’ve done and didn’t? Oh Yeah!  He is the Accuser of the bretheren. (Ref. Revelation 12:10) Well, this morning I was reminded of something I heard many years ago ‘When the devil starts messing with your mind about your past, just remind him of his future!’

My Precious ones, we don’t have to tuck tail and squirm away in condemnation, as if that’s the end of our story. We can remind the devil that what happened back then was just a chapter setting me up for future episodes of coming attractions!  Remember, The Bible does say, let the redeedmed of the lord, tell their story!

You have been authorized to speak The Word of God with a holy boldness fueled by  confident assurance! You know, like James Brown, ‘SAY It loud! Say it proud! I don’t care whether the fat lady sanngs or not;  for the Blood-Washed Child of The Living God…Failure ain’t Final! In fact, tell ’em,  “I AM the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus! I’m not in this thing by myself!  AND when I do stumble and fall, The GOD in Me enables me to fall forward, get back up and keep on moving into my destiny and God’s Purpose! (Ref. Colossians 1:27)

Beloved, take a stand! Let the devil know, ‘I am fully persuaded that whatever you’re planning to trip me up, give it your best shot, just like it didn’t work the last time, it won’t work this time either.(Ref. Isaiah 54:17)

If you really wanna shut his mouth, let ’em know that you know“My God has ggggrrreeeaaaatt plans for me, for good and not for evil, and He swore by God-self, to bring me into an amazingly glorious future! And remember all that stuff you keep reminding me of, it’s covered, blotted out by the BLOOD!! I know it ain’t fair, it’s called‘favor’! (Ref. Jeremiah 29:11)

Now seal the deal! “One more thing, You Lyin’ Devil, I peeped the back of the Book, and the TRUTH is it ain’t looking that good for you! In the end, we win and you’re still a loser!

#BAMM! #shutdafrontdoor! Didjaheardat?  HOPE SO! UP & AT ‘EM!

They will be my people, and I will be their God. I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear me for their own good and the good of their children after them. I will make an everlasting covenant with them. I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear me so that they will never turn away from me. I will rejoice in doing them good and will assuredly plant them in this land with all my heart and soul. Jeremiah 32:38-41

 

As a child, I vaguely remember a glimpse of pride swelling up inside whenever I heard someone say,‘this is the GREATEST nation in the world’! I suppose that’s what they mean by ‘let’s make this nation great…again, huh? But, that was before I became abruptly aware that there were two nations co-existing in one! #ijs

According to historical accounts, Courage and Confidence was once the hallmark of our nation! Yet, some say that the infamous catastrophic events of 911 has radically stripped away this lofty heritage and the hope-filled future legacy  that was once ascribed to the land of the power, peace and prosperity is now being besieged by the rampant rage of darkening clouds of an evil foreboding fear, doubt, anxiety, stress, guilt, shame, confusion and condemnation!

Well, it’s not my intent to debate the inevitable result of widespread deviation from the moral standards as defined by The Holy Bible. Howeverrrr, may I submit for your consideration, that without a holy reverence, a clear vision and a Divine impartation of understanding of WHO GOD IS & WHAT HE REQUIRES OF US, people’s strength will fail and their expectations of security perishes! The past has proven that without the restraint of law and order, destruction prevails! Well, like the ol’ skool preacha used to say, “I jus lost half my churrch!” Seriously?

Honestly, when we don’t understand Whose we are, we’ll be inclined to doubt God’s ability and even His willingness to help us. Void of genuine hope and unable to trust God’s Unfailing Love, we instinctively depend upon self to take care of our needs and satisfy the desires of our own hearts. And we all know how that turns out, right?

But those of us who dare to risk resentment, ridicule and rejection from those who will slander our righteousness, labeling us as unloving and intolerant, WE DEFY the prevailing opinions of the worldly in favor of the guidelines of the Ancient Landmarks, rejoice in hope, fully persuaded that if we suffer for Christ sake, we shall also reign with Him!  #CANIGETANGOODAMEN?

Through faith and hope, TRUE WORSHIPERS develop a singleness of -heart and mind, stemming from personal intimacy with The Lord Jesus Christ whereby we experience the Abiding Presence of God, trusting wholly in His Sustaining Grace!

Instead of conforming to the ways of the world, believers don’t bail out! Hence, in the face of the calamity and chaotic circumstances, we stand steadfast, rooted and grounded in The Promises, Provision and Power, persevering in the midst of devastation, famine and plagues, confident that we’re covered! Remember Goshen, God’s Protected Place? (Ref. Exodus 8:22)

Beloved, trust 2 know that when it looks like your world is falling apart, look again! Don’t allow fear to drain your faith! From Heaven’s perspective, everything is falling right in place!  Remember, Jesus has already gone into Tomorrow to prepare a table before you, right in the presence of your enemies! (Ref. Psalm 23:5) #Didjaheardat?

IT AIN’T WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE, K? YOU GOTTA HOPE BEYOND THIS WORLD!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
