SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Good Morning my Precious Chosen! GOTTA MOMENT? Didjaknow, that the only reason u r able to read this post is because Our Heavenly Father has blessed u to be alive one more day? Yep! And for that, please join me in exalting The Glorious Name of Jesus! As is our custom on Thursdays, once again we, encourage you to join us in our weekly day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting! There are many sickly, weak, afflicted, ill-treated or faint of heart among us, therefore as James 5:13 instructs, let us utilize the honor and privilege afforded us by our Heaven Father! Shall we pray?

WELCOME, INTO THIS PLACE! WELCOME INTO THIS BROKEN VESSEL! YOU DESIRE TO ABIDE IN THE PRAISES OF YOUR PEOPLE, SO WE LIFT OUR HANDS, AND WE LIFT OUT HEARTS AND WE OFFER UP THIS PRAISE UNTO YOUR NAME! WELCOME HOLY SPIRIT! WE ARE IN YOUR PRESENCE! FILL US WITH YOUR POWER…LIVE INSIDE OF ME! YOU’RE MY LIVING WATER, NEVERENDING FOUNTAIN! COMFORTER AND COUNSELOR, TAKE COMPLETE CONTROL…we bow down in HIS Presence…

 

Abba Father, it is with great joy that we entreat Thy Seat of Mercy today! Trusting confidently that You have afforded us this awesome privilege not because we deserve it, but based solely upon Your Loving-Kindness towards us, that draws us into Your All Emcompassing Presence.

Sweet Jesus, we Thankya for Your commitment, to so please The Heart of The Father, that You willingly sacrificed 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 of Your Righteousness we are now beneficiaries of All that You are in the Eyes of the Creator of All Living things!

Father, we know that You already know everything about every single one of us, because You are Omniscient and Omnipresent, but since You walked among us, allowing Your self to be tempted at all points as we are, You learned what we experience in these earthly tabernacles and can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! Therefore You are our Great High Priest, 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 and Comfort! We thankya Lord Jesus, for being our Very Present Help in troubling times!

Lord, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word with all of our hearts and minds, 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 refuge, peace, strength and 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 lift our hands and our hearts yielded before You, we pray for those who are unsaved, believing You to ignite a spirit of Godly-repentance that they may confess “sincere YES” in their heart and mind provoking a desire to surrender their lives to You today and receive You as their personal Savior and Lord!

Lord, we’re believing You to put a “committed YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider that this will be the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR church where they will be greeted with lovingkindness, nurtured in the Will and Ways of Your Word, dedicating the rest of their lives to glorifying You in these last and evil days to a lost and dying world!

Father, we ask that You touch our brother, touch our sister who is afflicted by any sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, heart and lung disease, diabetes, high/low blood pressure, those in need of transplants, those suffering from knee, back, hip and shoulder pain, we pray that You will 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! 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 In Jesus Name!

Lord, 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 and Wholeness, Favor, Provision, Prosperity, Protection and Peace. We ask, Father, that You preserve them thru the tests that they must go thru and keeping them hidden in the secret place YOUR PRESENCE, resting confident that at the appointed time You shall bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word. Amen 3x!

Father, as we lift up our children, our childrens’ children and by faith, we cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them, we commit them into Your Providential care, acknowledging that You have a plan and purpose for their lives, we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely ordered by Your eyes! We rejoice in Thy Salvation!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Evangelist, Preach, Teacher, Deacon, auxiary leader and member! We ask for 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 Power, Conviction and Anointing of Holy Spirit. 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. Grace Your menservants and maidens to be authentic examples of holiness, in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall deeply in love, trust wholly in and live their lives faithfully serving You! In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Father, we know that You keep Covenant with those who keep covenant with you; therefore in the midst of looming darkness and despair, we ask that You stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name, empowering them with a fresh desire 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!

Knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying as You have instructed us, for the leaders of our nation and the world, every corporate, judicial, education, financial, health care institutions, public service and military individuals! We’re trusting that You are touching their minds and hearts, speaking to them in dreams and visions and 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 ears and hearts 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 Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Precious Lord!, continue to open the eyes of our understanding so that Your people are not easily deceived by those who would desire to entrap Your children in bondage to that which You have delivered us from. 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.

Father, we believe that every demonic-induced spirit of anxiety, temptation, addiction, rejection, self-hate, suicide, fear and failure, guilt and shame 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 rejoice now in confiden quietness, trusting that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shame, 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!

ABBA FATHER, WE THANK, HONOR AND PRAISE YOU NOW! FOR WE THAT KNOW YOUR NAME AND PUT OUR TRUST IN YOU, KNOW THAT YOU LORD HAVE NOT FORSAKEN ANY THAT SEEK YOU! WE SEAL OUR PRAYER, IN THE EXALTED NAME OF JESUS. AMEN 3x!

SELAH!

GM FBF! GOTTA MOMENT? GREAT GOD ALMIGHTY!

We’re delighted that you have joined us today in our Weekly Corporate Thursdays’ Prayer and Fasting! While the world is foolishly looking to man to deliver us, we, Your Children, in faithful obedience, look to You, JESUS, The Author and Finisher of our Faith to cause us to NOT JUS SURVIVE BUT THRIVE in the day of evil! Let’s pray…Ooops Care2Share?

Reach out and touch The Lord, as He goes by! You’ll find He’s not too busy to hear your cry! He IS PASSING BY THIS MOMENT! UR NEED HE WILL SUPPLY! REACH OUT AND TOUCH THE LORD AS HE GOES BY! O, Sweet Wonder! Oh Sweet Wonder! Jesus, The Son of God! Ooohh Sweet Wonder! Oh! Sweet Wonder! Jesus! The Son of God! Here I am to worship, Here I am to bow down, Here I am to say that You’re my God, You’re altogether lovely, Altogether worthy, Altogether wonderful to me!

Our Father and Our God, we come this morning, eternally grateful for Your Loving-Kindness and Tender Mercy us that has been bestowed upon us! For this is the day that You have made and we SHALL REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT! With joy-filled humbled hearts, we set our attentions on things above and not below, knowing that You Forever Rule and Reign! You are Elohim, LORD, GOD, ALMIGHTY, JEHOVAH all by YOURSELF! Beside YOU, there is none else to revere, fear and none to compare! For You are HOLY!

Throughout the Ages, You Alone have proven to be The Only Wise God, Savior and Lord of all, in and through all! As You have blessed and favored us, we now come boldly before Your Throne, lifting up The Name that is above all names, The Sweetest Name we know, JESUS!

SWEET JESUS, we’re thankful that because You are Enthoned at The Right Hand of The Father, clothed in Majesty as The Great and Eternal High Priest, Who voluntarily stripped GODself to come down and walk amongst us, allowing Yourself to be wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, bore our guilt and shame and have been touched with the feelings of our infirmities! It’s only by Your Graciousness, we are able to approach You confident that Your Mercy has imputed ALL THAT JESUS IS unto us! Therefore, we stand in this Amazing Grace, resting assured that In Christ Jesus, we are The Righteousness of God, Forgiven, Redeemed, Restored and inheriting all the riches and glory of Thine Eternal Kingdom!

Abba Father, as we come today with our our hearts rejoicing, hands lifted up and our lips forever praizing You we declare, Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping! Because You know our frame, Your faithfulness and compassion continuously allows You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to see and yet minister to all of our real need! Because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God You keep right on blessing us over and over again! With sincere Godly-repentance, we ask You to forgive us this day for any and everything we have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to Your Heart. As we confess our sin, You are Faithful and Just to forgive, pardon and restore us back into rightful fellowship with You, we ask now for Your forgiveness, in The Precious Name of Jesus!

And because no man can come to The Father, except You draw them, we pray for the lost and the blind who have no personal revelation of Who You are an all that You’ve Done for us! We ask that You open their eyes to see the lawless of their sin through Your eyes and to acknowledge it as evil wickedness and rebellion against the Creator and Lover of our souls, The Giver and Sustainer of All Life! Hence, we pray that You quicken their spirits to repent immediately, and confess with their mouths their wrongdoing that they might receive the Gracious forgiveness of our Heavenly Father! As You have forgiven me, Lord forgive them for their sins, because they know not what they do!

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

Father, there are so many who are faced with many different situations. Some are dealing with hurt, pain, illnesses, sorrow and grief. Some are battling depression and oppression; addictions, low self esteem and the list goes on and on. Many are contemplating throwing in the towel on your spouse, your family; some simply don’t know what to do. As Your Word has instructed, we now look to the hills from whence cometh all our help; knowing that whatever challenges we’re faced with, You are still in control.

Jehovah Rophe, touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, kidney disease, heart/lung disease and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Therefore, even as You walked this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! 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 we declare and decree that The God of ALL Peace, Love, Hope, Wholeness and Serenity is covering and comforting each one of us even as we pray! Amen 3x!

Dear Lord, we’re believing that as You are releasing Divine power, Supernatural strength and health, provision, prosperity and protection, we’re trusting that You will keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that at the appointed time, You, will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised in Your Word!

Heavenly Father, as You have instructed us, we pray for the leaders of our nation and the world and every corporate, judicial, education, financial institutions! We ask 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 thatThe government of this world shall rest upon Your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Abba Father, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher, Teacher and auxiliary leader. 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!

Father, we’re lifting up our children, our children’s children by faith, as many of them are about to begin a new school year, some are entering the workforce, hence, we’re committing them into Your care, realizing that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too; we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by Your eyes!

Lord Jesus, when the cares of this world begins to close in on us, help us to slip away and find a quiet place to pray! And in those moments when we can’t pray, we know that You listen to our hearts and interpret every moan, groan and sigh of our spirits! Father, we thank You that despite our fractures and dysfunctions, You yet continue to bless us that we may be a blessing to others. You keep us strong that we may help the weak. You will keep us uplifted that we may have words of encouragement for others. You will strengthen our hearts to pray for those who are lost and can’t find their way, pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood, those who don’t know You intimately and for those 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!

Abba Father, we know that You have instructed us to look not at the temporary things but to the eternal, so please help those whose hearts are burdened with the pressures of this life, wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness and disease, financial debt, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions, insecurities and grief, the widows, the downcast who have born the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through! Lord, give them sweet Peace! Lord, keep us as only You can!

Father, help us to not complain about things that are out of our control and enlighten us to recognize that faith in God not only changes people, it changes me; and only You, O God have the Power to change things!

As we near the close of our prayer, we’re praising You for peace, unity, love and joy in our homes; believing that Your Divine Favor is being poured out upon everyone now and their faith is rising to a level that they’re faithful and obedient to live everyday as You have commanded, allowing You to release supernatural abundance in every area of our lives, because we have committed to put You first,all our needs are met. In Jesus Name!
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’re 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!
Lord Jesus, while there are 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 and imagine, according to You Perfect Will. We decree and declare, believing You to fix IT Jesus, as only You can!
Abba Father, we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that You have listened, 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! 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

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES AND CARES ABOUT U2!

HE LOVES ME!

HE LOVES ME

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden. Genesis 3:8

 

Back in the olden days, there was a street game (Yes, we actually played outside) and while the name of the game escapes me, I do remember the rules. We’d find a fresh yellow flower, which was no small feat in the hood, and then we’d proceed to slowly pull each individual golden petal apart from the stem while chanting the words,“He loves me…He loves me not…He loves me…He loves me not…HE LOVES ME!”
 
That’s exactly how some of us authenticate our relationship with Jesus! When our circumstances are all good (just as we like them), “He loves me”. Howevrrrr, when situations suddenly shift beyond our comfort level and/or ability to control, “He loves me not!”
 
Where did this come from? Let’s consider our first parents, Adam and Eve. When they obeyed the Voice of God, they enjoyed paradise—living life to the fullest. Everything they desired was theirs for the picking without their even asking. However the moment they began to doubt God’s faithfulness and willfully defied God’s instructions, they were thrust into an environment that God never intended for them to experience. The confident intimacy of God’s Presence was ruptured and for the first time, they found themselves radically disconnected, attempting to hide themselves from the Eternal Source of Life and Love! The enchantment they once knew was displaced by dread, fear, guilt, shame, doubt and insecurity! 
 
But The Eternal God of Love, refused to let go! The Omniscient Creator came looking for Adam.  
 
Where are you? Today? Are you discouraged and feeling detached from The True Source of Power, Hope, Joy and Peace? Are the cares of this world or un-confessed sin tempting you to hide from your Only Savior, Jesus? 
 
Come out from there! Lift your heart towards The King of Glory and be ye reconciled! (Ref. 2 Corinthians 5:20)
 
Don’tchakno?  When our Heavenly Father sees us, He’s looking at us through Lovingly Blood-Stained Eyes!  
 
Trust for sure, Beloved…Yes, HE LOVES ME, AND YOU! 
 
SELAH!

IF U THINK…U CAN THANK!

IF U THINK, U CAN THANK

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

“When I think of the goodness of Jesus, and all he has done for me,my soul cries out Hallelujah! I thank God for saving me!”

 

We’ve all heard that; some of us have even testified it ourselves. How many of us were clueless that this was really a verse of a song, and not a scripture? But datz okay! Regardless of it’s roots, reciting these words has pulled many drowning souls out of the depths of hopelessness and despair!

The master of deceit, Satan, flourishes in our proclivity towards selective amnesia. Whether it’s a self-induced defense mechanism or some type of ego-boosting-denial-syndrome, I don’t know. However, if we’re honest, every single one of us could testify we’ve scaled some mountains higher than we thought possible and drifted through seemingly impossible storms that “NOBODY BUT GOD kept us alive!”

Truthfully, that’s exactly what terrifies Satan the most. He knows that if we ever take the time to really think about how often The Power Twins, Mercy and Grace, showed up, just in the nick of time delivering us from danger, destruction and even death, praise and worship is imminent! And of course, that’s the absolute last thing the devil wants to endure is a bunch of happy trusting believers rejoicing and lifting up The Name of Jesus!

Well, guess what devil, you might as well pull out your earplugs, because God is raising up a nation of your worst nightmare,  reformed doubters-complainers, an honest-to-goodness -genuine BELIEVERS! Oh Yeah! We’ve come through some fires, been through some storms but we can truly say that God was with me all the way!

In fact, come to think of it,  everytime that I cried out to Him, Jesus heard me and saved me out of all my troubles! ( Psalm 34:6) And because of my personal history, I have learned how to lean and depend on Jesus! Therefore, I truly and profoundly declare and decree (with both hands raised) “I WILL BLESS THE LORD AT ALL TIMES, HIS PRAISE SHALL CONTINUALLY BE IN MOUTH! (Psalm 34:1)

And guess what else, if you think I’m gonna keep this to myself, you must be an ol’ fool! I’m about to tell everybody, ‘come and see what the Lord has done for me!” THINK ABOUT IT…U GOTTA THANK HIM, huh?

SELAH!

THE DRUNKARD’S BABBLE

THE DRUNKARD'S BABBLE

SELAH Daily Devotions!

“Whom shall he teach knowledge?and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept,precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little. For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.
But The Word of the Lord unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us; for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:” Isaiah 28:9-15

 

This message of God spoken through God’s Prophet Isaiah is addressed to Ephraim, who, according to God’s own words, had become a spoiled child, a nation prone to arrogance and prideful boasting of what they themselves have accomplished. Like many of us today, who having arrived at a certain level, intoxicated by the accolades, pompous splendor of worldly success, tend to forget that it was only by and through The Mighty Hand of God that we are who we are, do what we do and have what we have. As Grand Ma used to say, ‘we get too big for our own britches’! But, history has adeptly emphasized that it might serve us well to remember that God is a Jealous God and refuses to share His Glory with any other god, even if that god be a figment of our own warped imagination!

According to today’s scripture text, the plumb line had been moved so far away that even Ephraim’s leaders, the priest and prophets, were no longer teaching (nor living) according to the guidelines that God had specifically laid out before them, line upon line, precept upon precept. They all had become so drunk with their titles in the church, kissing up to political officials and making a name for themselves in the communities that couldn’t see straight neither were their words making any sense! In other words, forgetting how deceitful and self-serving flesh can be, everybody did what was right in their own minds!

The temple had become so filled with such ungodly noise and the altars so polluted with vomit that the people were clueless as to what True Holiness was all about. No longer was the Church the place where the people of God came together to worship and lift up His Name and trained in the ways of righteousness, but rather just another medium for religious entertainment! Sound uncomfortably familiar, huh?

BUT GOD! God has a way of snatching  self-made crowns right off our heads, knocking us down a few notches and bringing us back to our senses, huh? If you persist in your childish ways, God, as any good earthly Father, has His own swtich (rod of correction) ready to train you back into proper alignment! He Whom the Lord loves, He also chastens! (Ref. Hebrew 12:6-11)

God’s life insurance policy is Just and God’s Word is the measuring stick for righteousness!

WATCH OUT! R U SET or Blah, blah, blah; Da, da, da…? THE DRUNKARD’S BABBLE!

ALWAYS & 4 EVER!

ALWAYS AND 4 EVER

For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed. Isaiah 50:7

 

There’s never been a point, place or space in time where God is not! God IS and will ever BE—for He is ETERNALLY GOD! #didjaheardat?

To souls wearied and wounded from matriculating through the sporadic-tumultuous terrains of life, this  statement has proven to be the Source of great comfort and strength. At the same time, it’s the sting of predictable debilitating destruction and defeat against the insidious attacks to the forces of evil!

The primary mission of the Kingdom of darkness is to cause the people of God to abandon their hope and personal trust in The Eternal Father by any means necessary! Satan’s disciples strategically set up obstacles to ensnare believers with confusion, fear and doubt designed ultimately to contaminate their faith, causing them to re-evaluate the Reliability of trusting in an invisible, yet all emcompassing True and Living God!

Problem is, all too often, it’s the personal testimonies of triumphant victories down thru the years that continue to rigorously validate God’s Faithfulness, fueling the Believer’s Hope of Eternal Glory!

Finding ourselves knee-deep in the midst of this 21st Century Anti-Christ culture, there’s no shortage of opportunities to throw in the towel and tap-out on the Promises revealed in the Sacred Writ, resolving that they’re no longer relevant in this self-centered, self-righteous, intellectually astute, Hi-Tech, contemporal society!  

However, such thinking is only logical to those who have foolishly opted to avoid the reality of The Omnipresent Omnipotent God! Nothing ever happens that catches God off-guard. Hence, He is Alpha and Omega!  The Omniscient Creator, Sovereignly orchestrating the affairs of  humanity from eternity past, thru present into eternity future,  determined that His Purpose shall never be frustrated by the  inherent iniquity of flawed-fickled-fleshy-lust-filled mankind!

Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. God did this so that, by two inchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of The Hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. We have this Hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:17-19

 

Beloved, standing firmly on the Immutability of God’s Word, gives us the leverage to embrace every situation with confident assurance that we’ll never alone and God is always in control. Therefore, our Heavenly Father is always Present  to help, constantly undergirding our inabilities with His Infinite Excellence!

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. (Deuteronomy 31:6)

Remember, My child, when the odds are stacked against the righteous—GOD’S AT HIS BEST! FAITHFUL…ALWAYS AND FOREVER!

HE’S ALWAYS THERE

HE'S ALWAYS THERE!

I am with you always, even to the end of the age

Matthew 28:20 
 

One morning I received an email that took me back to an all too familiar place. As I read  on, I immediately realized that the lost sheep could very well had been me. Feel free to eavesdrop on the conversation,…
 
 “In the early 1980s I counseled a Christian young woman who was languishing in deep spiritual, mental and emotional torment. She wrote:
 
“Dear God, Where are you? How can you watch and not help me? I hurt so bad, and you don’t even care. If you cared you’d make it stop or let me die. I love you, but you seem so far away. I can’t hear you or feel you or see you, but I’m supposed to believe you’re here. Lord, I feel them and hear them. They are here. I know you’re real, God, but they are more real to me right now. Please make someone believe me, Lord. Why won’t you make it stop? Please, lord, please! If you love me you’ll let me die…A lost sheep”
 
I deal with many Christians who are filled with such confusion that their daily walk with Christ is unfulfilling and unproductive. When they try to pray, they begin thinking about a million things they should be doing. When they sit down to read the bible, they can’t concentrate. Whenever they have an opportunity to serve the Lord in some way, it comes up short by discouraging thoughts of self-doubt.
 
Having found freedom and deliverance, “the lost sheep” penned a response to her own prayer based on her new understanding of God’s provision in Christ.
 
“My dear lost sheep, You ask me where I am. My child, I am with you and I always will be. You are weak, but in me you are strong. I am so close that I feel everything you feel. Be crucified with me and I will live in you, and you shall live with me. I will direct you in paths of righteousness. My child, I love you and I will never forsake you, for you are truly mine…Love, God”
 
Saints, by The Grace of God, while I too have experienced the freedom of  being delivered from the tormenting trauma and enslavement to depression; however I will never everrrr forget to remember How Great A Salvation that The Lord wrought in my life!  
 
It’s incumbent upon us to remember, this is not heaven, the devil is still a liar and God’s Word is Truth! If the saints are feeling the heat of the devil’s wicked devises, can you imagine what he’s putting the unsaved through?

Saints, ask God to open the eyes of your heart that you may see who’s hurting around you. If the whole world’s coming out the closet, we certainly can’t afford to be closet Christians! We have an awesome responsibility and an obligation to be the Love, Compassion and Hope of Christ to a lost generation! You ought to tell one somebody that there is a Hope that’s out of this world…I mean, really?
 
His Name is Jesus and He’s Always There!

SELAH!
