GOD WILL COME THRU FOR YOU!

GOD WILL COME THRU

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

And the redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord. Isaiah 59:20 KJV

Since God assured us, “I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you,” we can boldly quote, “God is there, ready to help, I’m fearless no matter what. Who or what can get to me?” Hebrews 13:6 The Message

 

Ever heard them ol’ skool Mothers say, “God’s never late and hardly ever early”? Well, if that’s supposed to make waiting easier, let me assure you, it doesn’t! What about, “A delay is not a denial and a failure is not final”. Granted, these proverbial acclaimations may work in a 11 a.m. Sunday Morning Service, with the musicians crankin’, the praise team rockin’ it and the saints shoutin’But! What about when you leave the sanctuary and get home alone, again; and the evil one starts bringing up all the reasons why you ain’t  gonna make it through this time! And what if the test results confirm _____; and what if you don’t get accepted; and what if  she did have an affair; whatcha gonna do if He does want a divorce? Hence, ‘Hey you, where’s your GOD NOW!’

The ol’ saints used to sing, “He Delivers, Praise the Lord, He Delivers, Praise the Lord, I was bound by the power of the devil, but HE delivered, Praise the Lord”! Well, let me tell you why they were able to sing those kinda songs. They didn’t have a lot of money at their disposal, so if they got sick they couldn’t afford a doctor. If they had more mouths than food they couldn’t just whip out their credit card at the grocery store. When their car broke down, they couldn’t take it to Mr. Bill’s Auto Shop. And if John Edward got locked up, they couldn’t afford no bail or private attorney!  But, they had a God to pray to! And you know what? They found Him to be an ‘ON TIME GOD!’

Having no other recourse, but to wait on da Lawdd, they resigned themselves to stand planted on The Rock of Ages, not wishin’ and a hopin’; but trusting in the Strength of God’s Love despite what it looked like!

Needless to say, this kind of faith is hard to find in this “busy-booming-High-Tech-don’t need nobody-DIY” generation. After all we have so many other options. Why pray and have to wait on GOD? 

Because He is God and we are not! God has deliberately designated each step and stop necessary to cultivate our realization that we are His Creation; created to fulfill His purpose and without Him we can do absolutely nothing(Ref. John 15:5) But through His Guidance and Power, all things are possible! (Ref. Philippians 4:13)

Yes, we all experience times when it jus feels like God has turned His Face and given our enemy the nod to ‘walk right over our head’. Except, considering the ambiguity of our emotions, is it really wise to rely upon such in the crucial moments of a time-sensitive-crisis? Exactly? Bible-Faith is based on solely upon The Sure Foundation; The Word of God!

God knows sometimes our flesh becomes weary! That’s why He dispatched Holy Spirit to hover close while we’re waiting for Him to move! (Ref. Isaiah 40:31) The reason God is never in a hurry is because He knows just what it takes to perfect His Will and His Glory in your life. He swore by GOD-SELF to never abandon or give up on you! (Ref. Deut. 31:8) So, why would you ever give up on Him? Am I right, about it? #ijs

Stop trying to figure everything out. Keep trusting and keep expecting your deliverance at any moment! Trust and know that ain’t no mountain high enough, ain’t no valley low enough; Ain’t no river wide enough, TO KEEP GOD FROM GETTING 2 U! 

REMEMBER DAT! HE WILL ALWAYS COME THROUGH 4 YOU!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Good Morning my Precious Bros. And Sistas! GOTTA MOMENT?

Didjaknowthat the only reason u r able to read this post is because Our Heavenly Father has blessed u to be alive one more day? And for that, please join us in exalting The Glorious Name of Jesus! As is our custom on Thursdays, we encourage you to join us in our weekly day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting between 6:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Is there any among you sick, weak, afflicted, ill-treated or faint-hearted, then as James 5:13 instructs, let’s pray!

Great is Thy Faithfulness, O God our Father! There is no shadow of turning with Thee. Thy changes not; Thy compassions fail not; as Thou hast beenThou forever wilt be! Morning by morning new mercies I see; ALL I HAVE NEEDED THY HAND HATH PROVIDED—GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS, LORD UNTO ME!

 

Abba Father, today, it is with exceeding joy that we entreat Thy Seat of Mercy! Trusting confidently that You have afforded us this awesome honor and privilege not because we deserve it, but based solely on Your Loving-Kindness towards us, that draws us into Your All Emcompassing Presence. Sweet Jesus, we thankya for Your Faithful Obedience to please The Heart of The Father by sacrificing Your Life in our stead, that we might become Sons of The True and Living God! And for this cause, we bow in humble gratitude, fully aware that as we come before You, empty and void of anything that would warrant such awesome graciousness, but because Your Righteousness we are now the beneficiary of All that You are in the Eyes of God!

Jesus, we know that You already know everything about every single one of us, because You are Omnisient 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 can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! Therefore You, as our Great High Priest, are able 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! We ask that You hear our hearts confessing our sins, known and unknown,  that You will apply Your Blood over us, forgiving and cleansing us from all unrighteousness.

Lord, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word, sometimes, it’s difficult to over-ride the noises of the pestilences, 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 finding 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 bless You for continuing to renew our strength, understanding and power as we open our hearts to You, by depending and relying only on You. And as we humbly yield our entire being before You, we pray for those who have yet to receive The Saving Grace of Jesus, believing You to ignite a spirit of Godly-repentance that drives them to come today, surrendering their lives to You, confessing  out of their mouths “a sincere YES”  flowing from hearts that seeking a personal relationship with The Only Savior and Lord of Life

Sweet Holy Spirit, we ask You to put a “FRESH COMMITTED  YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider so that this will be their day to come back to You and come back to YOUR  local church that they may be accepted, restored, nurtured, encouraged and committed to live the rest of their lives according to Your Will and Ways.

Father, please touch our brother, touch our sister who has been afflicted by any 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 envigorate, encourage and replenish the spirits, minds and bodies of those who are charged to care for their loved ones!

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, prosperity and protection.

We pray also Father, that You preserve them thru the tests that they must go thru and keep them constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that at Your pre-determined appointed time, You shall bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word.

Father  God, 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 Power and Anointing of Holy Spirit. Continue to open doors and make straight the  paths before them; bind every spirit that’s been assigned to hinder them from fulfiling every vision and dream that You’ve placed in their hearts and minds! Send those to lift their arms, encourage and undergird them as they seek to be a blessing to those that You’ve charged them to shepherd!

Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to equip them by Your Grace to be the living 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 their lives serving You!

Father, once again, we come lifting up our children, our grandchildren and great-grand children! By faith we rebuke and cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! We’re committing them into Your Providential care, covered by The Blood of Jesus! We acknowledge that from their Mothers’ wombis, You 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 and they shall NOT DIE prematurely VUT THEY SHALL LIVE  A LONG LIFE to declare the wonderous works of The LORD!

Precious Lord, stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name with a fresh desire and passion for an even greater personal, intimate relationship with Creator God through fellowship of Holy Spirit that they might prove what is the perfect and acceptable will of The Lord Jesus!

As You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying for  President Trump and his family! Surround him with advisors and counselors who have a holy reverence and  can’t resist the directive and instructions of Holy Spirit!  We rebuke ungodly influence assigned over this region and we bind every transmission of evil, wicked and corrupt communication surrounding this nation, as we declare and decree that no weapon that is formed against this nation shall prosper.

Sweet Holy Spirit, endow the hearts of your people with a peace that surpasses all understanding and the confident expectation that because we’re citizens of Your Kingdom, regardless of the mass deceitfulness of this world, our times are in Your Hands and You have promised to protect, provide and preserve the righteous who trust and obey Your Word!

We ask that you continue to open the eyes of understanding so that Your people are not easily deceived by those who would desire to enslave us to everything that which You have delivered us from.

Abba Father, help us to understand that salvation only comes to those who trust in the Name of Your First Begotten Son, Jesus ALONE as the Only Power to save us. Give us a sign of Your Goodness, that our enemies may see it and be put to shame. For You, O Lord who searches minds and hearts will continue to shield, help, comfort and saveYour servants whose hearts are upright before You.

Father, we believe that every demonic-induced spirit of temptation, addiction, 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! We declare and decree that all those who are pregnant with evil and conceives trouble shall give birth to disillusionment. Anyone who digs a hole and scoops it out shall fall into the pit he has made and the trouble he causes on others shall recoil on himself and every violent scheme that he devises against God’s Elect shall come down on his own head.

Father, we rejoice now in confidence and quietness, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in hopeless, helpless, shameful defeat, because 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 withold Your Mercy from us and Your Love and Your Truth is a wall around us!

Abba Father, we thank You for listening to our prayer and because You are listening, WE KNOW AND BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED THOSE THINGS, OFFERED BEFORE YOU, ACCORDING TO YOUR WILL! THEREFORE, we bow in holy reverence, honor and praise with Thanksgiving! For we trust and believe that it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen & Halleleujah 3X and It Is So!

BE ENCOURAGED!

WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?

WHO LET THE DOGS OUT

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

There are many wayward people, smooth talkers, and deceivers—especially the converts from Judaism. They must be silenced because they are disrupting entire families with their corrupt teachings, all for their dishonest greed. A certain one of them, one of their own prophets, said, “Those Cretans are nothing but liars, worthless beasts, and lazy gluttons.” He certainly knew what he was talking about! For this reason, correct them thoroughly so that their lives will line up with the truths of our faith. instruct them not to pay any attention to Jewish myths or follow the teachings of those who reject the truth,  It’s true that all is pure to those who have pure hearts, but to the corrupt unbelievers nothing is pure. Their minds and consciences are defiled.  They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are disgusting, disobedient, and disqualified from doing anything good. Titus 1:10-16 TPT

 

 

Mama told me there’d be days like this! BUT, C’mon nah! Who ever thought that progress would be interpreted as truth being despised and irrelevant, deceitfulness, pride, arrogance and greed is extolled while integrity is detested, trust is impaired according to the circumstances of any given moment and hope is deferred as justice bows to social elitism, racial prejudice and party preference! AND ALL THIS IS MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN? #Don’tshoutmedown, nah? A matter of perspective, huh?

TRUTHBTOLD, The Holy Scriptures are being unfolded, live and in living color, right before the eyes of the discerning who yet ascribe to the concept of Biblical Absolutes! Shocking, right? The lawlessness, chaos, confusion, uncertainties, frustration caused by the desolation of moral codes is the inevitable response when the righteous commands are resisted by the rebelliousness of a culture determined to evict the Sovereignty of the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY favoring to do what’s right in their own eyes!

BUT can somebody say, “THANKSB2GOD!” Knowing everything that could, should and would transpire before the foundation of the world, GOD, has made provision through HIS ETERNAL WORD to fulfill HIS DIVINE Plan and Purpose for His most precious of creation’s restoration and reconciliation! Rest assured Beloved, nothing has, can or ever will happen in the earth (and your life) that takes God by surprise! When it seems as if everything is fallen to the dogs and hell is winning, remember, KING JESUS IS STILL ON THE THRONE, REIGNING & RULING OVER THE AFFAIRS OF MANKIND!

And while the rage of the dogs’ barking seems to be drowning out The Voice of Holy Spirit, don’t get it twisted! God’s got them on a lease! Beloved, although we’re living in a season of spiritual darkness, we don’t faint in fear but we boldly walk by faith in the Light of HIS ETERNAL WORD! In the midst of spiritual famine, we remain undaunted, steadfast, courageous, focusing and trusting JESUS, The Author and Finisher of our our Faith.

Your Heavenly Father promised, “ I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU! (Ref. Heb. 13:5) At God’s appointed time The Glory of God SHALL ARISE,  bringing about a Divine Reversal! The first shall be last and the last shall be first! (Mark 10:31)

Blessed is the one who has made the Lord, his trust! Psalm 40:4

GOD MAKES EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL, IN HIS OWN TIME! STAND STILL & SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD! TRUST2KNO, Destiny’s calling 2 shut the dogs mouths!

So the Lord sent a pestilence upon Israel from the morning even to the time appointed: and there died of the people from Dan even to Beersheba seventy thousand men. And when the angel stretched out his hand upon Jerusalem to destroy it, the Lord repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed the people, It is enough: stay now thine hand. And the angel of the Lord was by the threshing place of Araunah the Jebusite. Samuel 24:15:16

 

To those who still doubt the authenticity of The Holy Bible, I say obviously you’ve never read this Book! It must be God! I mean, can you imagine any other person, being as openly-transparent about His own family? #ijs

Here we see Israel’s most celebrated King, David, God’s Elect, “Man after God’s Own Heart”exposed by The Light of Truth throughout all generations as an example and a warning!

While there yet remains much to admire, seeing the Favor of God exemplified raising up a shepherd boy to King reigning over HIS People, but we must never forget that David was mortal and not Divine. It’s okay to acknowledge and even emulate some of the more notable characteristics of God’s servant, however we must never fail to take into account David’s humanity! Therefore,  David was subject to the same proclivities of his frail, infirmed, flawed and failing flesh as we are!

As we further investigate today’s text, we get a glimpse into one of the more dimmer phases of his extraordinary life. As the story goes, during the latter part of his life, God allowed Satan to tempt David in order to test what was truly in his heart. At the height of his successful reign, apparently David began to think more highly of himself than he ought to. (Ref. Romans 12:3) Hence, opening the gateway to pride and vainglory, the King commanded an unauthorized census taken of his people, which was a deliberate violation of God’s Law. (Ref. Exodus 30:12)

Now before yall sanctified folk start judging David, remember “let He who is without sin, cast the first stone! (Ref. John 8:7)

How many times have you willfully over-ruled the urging of Holy Spirit and did what seemed right in your own eyes? Now, put BOTH your hands UP! Right!

Truth is, every one of us has been GUILTY as charged! Nevertheless, when Justice demanded punishment, MERCY said NO! And while we might’ve suffered, to some extent, for our rebellious disobedience, ABBA GOD feeling the pain and the terror of His Beloved Children, stepped in the midst of our guilt-ridden, regret-laden, shame-filled consequences, rebuked Death and declared “Enough is Enough”!

David acknowledging his guilt, taking full responsibility for his actions, humbly committed himself into the Hands of the Loving Mercy Faithful Shepherd, prayed for forgiveness for himself and interceding on behalf of those who were innocently victimized because of his selfishness#Didjaheardat? #GODLY-REPENTANCE!

WOW! Now, that right there should cause all of us to immediately follow David’s lead, huh?  Seriously, how much longer do you intend to stay trapped in the cycle of your good intentions, failure, guilt and shame?  It’s time to get over yourself! Jus turn your face back towards the One TRUE GOD, sanctify your heart and lifestyle wholly unto our Holy God!  TRUST2KNO, the benefits are outta this world!

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:1-2

C’mon nah! AFTER ALL THAT GOD’S DONE FOR US, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!  #IJS!!! #jusreasonable!

For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the Lord abhorreth. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. Psalm 10:3-4
He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity. His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. Psalm 10:6-7

“Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee. ..These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes. Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.” Psalm 50:15-17, 21-23

 

I know that a lot of folk prefer to escape THE Truth in favor of the opinions of  the self-proclaimed ‘geniuses’ of this world’s culture, who ascribe to the more palatable theory of “no absolutes”! Nonetheless, the rest of us who have lived on both sides of The Cross, have concluded adamantly, “Let EVERY MAN BE A LIAR, AND GOD BE THE TRUTH! Okay,  as one of my favorite ol’ skool Preachers loves to say, “Nah, run down the aisle on dat!”

TRUTHBTOLD, everyday we’re faced with more and more evidence that the ideology of this present world is destined for a direct-hit collision with the reality that there is a SUPER BEING WHO IS, WAS AND WILL FOREVER BE in ABSOLUTE CONTROL OF THE COURSE OF THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE OF ALL OF HIS CREATION, INCLUDING HUMANITY! BELIEVETH THOU THIS? #ijs!!!!

While this truth is often disputed by those who favour the more liberating “I’m the Master of my own fate” persuasion, THERE YET REMAINS A REMNANT OF US WHO ARE FULLY PERSUADED THAT there will be no atheist in Hell!  #Don’t shout me down nah!!!

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. (Romans 1:21-22)

The arrogance of wickedness goes deeper than absolute unbelief! Rooted in the folly of his own imagination is the concept that God isn’t paying attention to what people are doing, therefore he’s getting away with every and anything his own evil heart desires! In other words, they foolishly assume that there ARE NO CONSEQUENCES 2 PAY! #WOW!

TRUST2KNO, nothing EVRRR catches GOD by surprise!The Ancient of Days watches patiently, examining and knowing the hearts of mankind, knows them that are HIS! God is not moved nor is He mocked by those who offer up lip service but have no intention of honoring His commands with faithful obedience!
However, those of us who yet cling to THE WORD, as if our very life depends upon HIM, have the Blessed Assurance that as we walk daily surrendering our hearts, minds and actions to the Righteous Commands of a Holy Heavenly Father, have an ETERNALHOPE that reaches far beyond this world!

When we find ourselves in the middle of trouble, we call upon Our Faithful Friend Who hears us and responds with Deliverance, Righteousness, Security, Peace, Fulfillment and Joy…GUARANTEEING VICTORY, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, FOR US AND GREATER GLORY FOR HIS NAME SAKE! #SERIOUSLY!

 
BUT FOR THE WICKED, WHO CHOOSE 2 FORGET GOD OR CHANGE HIS UNCORRUPTABLE GLORY 2 REFLECT THE IMAGE OF CORRUPTABLE MAN , IT IS NOT SO! HE REBUKES THEM AND LAUGHS AT THEIR DESTRUCTION! “but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he sees that his day is coming. (Psalm 37:13)

I know ‘it ain’t none of my business’, U gotta right to live anyway U wanna, right? #ijs…THERE ARE BENEFITS 4 OBEDIENCE! #ETERNAL LIFE! #NOW&LATER!

GOOD MORNING FAMILY! GOTTA MOMENT? AWESOME!

 

 

We’re delighted to have you with us today in our weekly Day of Corporate Pray and Fasting! We appreciate every opportunity and privilege extended to us that we might entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest, pouring out our hearts desires, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. Humbled by such graciousness, we bow before Him, embracing Him in earnest expectation, confident that He Who Rules Forever by His Power is able to save and deliver us from any of life’s maladies, we grab hold to The Horns of The Altar now to worship Him

 

My soul loves, Jesus! My soul loves, Jesus! My soul loves JESUS, BLESS HIS NAME! My soul loves JESUS! MY SOUL LOVES JESUS! MY SOUL LOVES JESUS…BLESS HIS NAME! O, Sweet Wonder! Oh Sweet Wonder! Jesus, The Son of God! Ooohh Sweet Wonder! JESUS THE SON OF GOD! Bow down and Worship Him, Worship Him! Ooohh Worship Him! Bow Down and Worship Him! Enter in! Oooh Enter In. Consuming Fire, Sweet Perfume! Your Awesome Presence, fills this room! This is Holy ground…This is Holy ground…we bow down….

 


Abba Father, it is with great joy that we entreat Thy Throne of Mercy today! Trusting confidently that You have afforded us this awesome honor and privilege not because we deserve it, but based solely on Your Loving-Kindness we draw close into Your All Encompassing Presence! Lord Jesus, we Thankya for Your Faithful Obedience to please The Heart of The Father by sacrificing Your Life in our stead, that we might enjoy the privilege bestowed upon us to become Sons of The True and Living God! And for this cause, we bow in humble gratitude, fully aware that we come before You, empty and void of anything that would warrant such awesome graciousness, but only because of Your Righteousness we are the beneficiaries of All that You are in the eyes of God! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!

 

Thank You for being our ONLY Salvation, Hope of Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision! Even being completely aware of the limitations of our frame, Your Faithfulness and Compassion continuously allow You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to see and minister to all of our real need! We’re blessed because You are a forgiving God, not only have You done so much for each of us, You keep right on blessing us over and over again!. Abba Father, we pray, “Forgive me this day for everything I’ve done, said or thought that was not pleasing to Your Heart. Help us to see and hate sin even as You do. Help us not to frustrate The Grace that You’ve so freely allotted to us. Assured that as we confess our sin, You are Faithful and Just to forgive, pardon and restore us back to rightful fellowship with You, we pray now for Your forgiveness, in The Precious Name of Jesus!”

 

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 points as we are, You learned what we experience in these earthly tabernacles and therefore You can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! Therefore, as our Great High Priest, You are able 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!

 

 

Precious Lord, looking around this country and seeing what’s going on in world, we pray that You will hold back the flood waters and fire, rebuke the winds and bind the hand of death and destruction! Send hope, healing, deliverance and restoration wherever it’s needed! In Jesus Name!

 

Lord, while it’s difficult to blot out the noise of the pestilence, the chaos of uncertainty and the the down-pull of pain, condemnation, guilt, shame and confusion that seeks to lure us into the valleys shadowed with danger, fear, anger, bitterness, anxiety, hopelessness and self-doubt, we STILL TRUST YOU! We gladly run to You, seeking refuge in the midst of storms, peace in the midst of the waves and hope for the faithful restoration thatYou have prepared for any who would come to You in hope-filled assurance that You will never deny Your Word! Heavenly Father, thank You for continuing to satisfy our souls, renew our strength, understanding and power as we yield the cares of our hearts to You!

 

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 confessing a “SINCERE YES” to Your Precious Gift of Grace 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 where they will be loved, nurtured, encouraged and taught the Ways of Your Kingdom!

Abba Father, we’re trusting You to break up the fallow ground and put a “fresh COMMITTED YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider! Let today be the day that they repent and come back to You and back to YOUR church determined to humbly submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, learn to love and live their lives denying the lust of their flesh and walking to please You!

Father, we believe that as we’re praying, You are touching our brother, our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, strokes, heart attacks, kidney failure, liver disease, mental and emotional issues! We intercede on behalf of all those undergoing surgical procedures, those in recovery rooms. We’re praying for those who’re on life-support systems, not knowing that they’re even in this world! We’re declaring and decreeing that as we’re praying You’re walking through every ward, touching, healing, delivering, miraculously rebuking fatigue, mistakes, mishaps, misdiagnosis and premature death and saving souls for Your Name Sake!

We plead the Blood of Jesus, declaring and decreeing 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!

Holy Spirit, intervene on our behalf to expose and rebuke the murdering spirit, the spirit of doubt, unbelief, hesitation and procrastination! Release Your children from every ungodly soul tie and enable us to move forward away from the shores of comfort to embrace the thoughts and plans that You have purposed for us! Birth in us new things, anoint us to destroy yokes, and restore our hope in Your Eternal words that You are watering the dry places and causing the dead bones to live again! Help us to remain faithful and keep a Kingdom mindset, relying on the Holy Spirit to go before us and make our way prosperous. We believe You are dispensing overwhelming Favor, Prosperity, Peace and when these blessings are manifested, help us to walk in a spirit of humility giving Your Name all the Glory, Honor and Praiz!


We bind every wicked scheme that the enemy desires to assail against us declaring that we are well able to take possession of every promises that You’ve made to us! We pray for total deliverance from every cord that would bind  and come against our God-ordained Destiny! We are thankful that nothing can stop our blessings or keep us from performing the greater works You have assigned to Your Covenant Saints! We thankya for the courage and patience to stand, steadfast, consistent, always abounding in the work of our LORD!


We pray for consoling strength for all who have lost loved ones, the caretakers of the feeble, rebuke the demons of the minds sent to attack our emotions with disappointments and we command restoration of power, love, hope and the JOY of Your Salvation. Help us to understand that as royal priests of a Holy nation unto You, failure is not final and  that our victorious testimonies shall provoke the envy of other nations who have not submitted to The True God but who yet serve false gods!


Sweet Holy Spirit, we bless You for The Spirit of Sonship that has elevated us from sinners, beggars and slaves and now we are priviledged to have You call us “MINE”! Therefore, as Your peculiar treasures, You have empowered us to rebuke every venomous, hateful word of racism and elitism! As You teach the church to be The Church of The Bride of Christ, strip us from every demonic seduction! As You have called us to be influencers in the midst of the lost and ungodly world, help us to pray for our enemies, to bless those who despitefully use us, those who are bitter and speak evil of us that our faith may be a sign that we belong to You! We pronounce blessings, joy, peace, favor upon all who trust You, as You prepare a table before our enemies!

Lord Jesus, send confirmation to those who are wavering as they’re waiting in faith for Your hand to move on our behalf. Assure us that the pain that we’re experiencing shall birth YOUR GREATNESS in us as You transition us into new levels of Your anointing, opportunities, relationships You are restoring that which is broken! Help us to  WALK BY FAITH, remembering not the former things but confidently reaching forward, fully persuaded that NOW IS NOT ALWAYS, anticipating that everything You’ve promised already is!

 

As we offer up this prayer of faith we believe You to cover our babies in daycare, our children in schools, our family and friends! As they go out and come in, You are rebuking threats, accidents, terrorist, assassins, bullies, predators, rapist and we decree that nothing shall cut our lives short!

By faith, we lift up our children, our grand and great-grand children, trusting The Faithfulness of Your Word! We commit them into Your Providential care, rebuke and cancel every wicked scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! We acknowledge that our children are a gift from You and that You have a Plan and Purpose for each and everyone of their lives! We have the blessed assurance that from their Mothers’ wombs their steps and stops are being Divinely ordered by Your eyes THEREFORE, we declare and decree that NO WEAPON THAT’S FORMED AGAINST THEM SHALL PROSPER, AND EVERY TONGUE THAT RISES UP AGAINST THEM SHALL BE JUDGED AND CONDEMNED RIGHTEOUSLY BY YOU! 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!


Sweet Jesus, we lift up every spiritual leader, The Bishops, Pastors, Overseers, Apostles, Evangelist, every Preacher, Teacher, Missionary, Deacon, musician choir director/member, praise team, liturgical dancer, usher and church member! We speak LIFE, STRENGTH, ENCOURAGEMENT, CONFIDENCE, ASSURANCE, RESTORATION OF HOPE and TRUST into all those who are yet believing for immediate manifestation of that special miracle and the fulfillment of every vision that You’ve placed into their hearts! Reward richly ALL those who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word with POWER, under the CONVICTION AND ANOINTING OF HOLY SPIRIT.

Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace them to be the TRUE & FAITHFUL WITNESSES and examples of Your Righteousness in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love with You, trust wholly in and commit to live the rest of their lives serving and glorifying You! Undergird them to carry out their assignment, under the direction and guidance 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.

Heavenly Father, as You have instructed, we continue to pray for the leaders of the world, our nation, government, Congress, Judicial, Legislative, corporate, education, financial institutions, health care providers, prison systems, community service worker! Rebuke the Spirit of corruption, collusion and deception! Touch their minds and hearts with GODLY FEAR; 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! Because their hearts are in your hands, we believe they are being continuously opened to hear and obey your will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Promise that the government of this world shall rest upon your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of kings and Lord of lords!

 

Abba, encourage and comfort the souls of Your elect who may be overwhelmed with fear, doubt and worry because of the things that are going on in our personal lives and in this ungodly world systems! Give us restful peace that assures us that WE ARE NOT FORGOTTEN OR FORSAKEN and at the appointed time,You, will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and rewarded as You have promised  in Your Word, according to Your Riches in Glory!

As we close our prayers, Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of addiction and perversion is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing, in Jesus Name!

Father, as we wait in confidence and quietness, we rejoice in hope, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, terrified 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,  answers our prayers and forgives our transgressions! Because You have chosen us, committing to love and care for us, our souls 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 You are making Your Ways and Salvation known among all nations for You Reign, Rule and Guide justly!

Holy Father, we thank You NOW, believing that IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. AMEN AND HALLELUJAH 3X !

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS DIED 4 EVERYBODY AND THAT HIS GREATEST DESIRE IS THAT WE ALL BE EMPOWERED 2 LIVE 4 AND WITH HIM 4EVER!

 

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
