THE FEAR FACTOR: COURAGEOUS TRUST!

THE FEAR FACTOR! COURAGEOUS TRUST

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee, for thou hast delivered my soul from death; …will, not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living? Psalm 56:3, 13

So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 NLT

 

According to the text above, we might as well expect to be attacked by the common enemy of our soul at any time, huh? Now, wipe that look off your face, I already know whatcha thinking! “OMG! That doesn’t sound like anything a Blood-Washed-Born-Again-Spirit-Filled-Saint-of-The-Most-High-God ought to be saying’, right? ‘After all, God has not given us a Spirit of Fear, our lives are hidden in Christ!’ You’re absolutely correct! However, Salvation doesn’t exempt us from experiencing tests, trials, tragedy or trauma! TRUTHBTOLD, according to the Apostle Pau,l we should not even consider it some strange phenomenon when uninvited trouble comes-a-knockin’ at our door! (Ref. 1 Peter 4:12)

Don’t shout me down nah! #ijs, Remember, we ain’t in Heaven yet! Even after we’ve confessed our faith in The Lord Jesus Christ, you can’t expect that Ol’ deceitful devil to wave a white flag, pat you on the back and throw you a retirement party! For lack of a better word, he is “committed” to tearing down The Kingdom of God, one soul at a time! Unfortunately, oftentimes Satan’s more truehearted than a lotta Saints!

Does this mean that the God’s people are defenseless? Absolutely, Positively NOT! Just as surely as there is an enemy determined to destroy our destiny, our hearts must take refuge in the reality that The True and Living God has sworn by Godself, that although the weapon may be formed against you, it shall not prosper because He Who created the hand, the bow and the arrow will always cause you to triumphant victoriously in Christ Jesus! (Ref. Isa. 54:17; 2 Corinthians 2:14) #Didjaheardat? #SERIOUSLY!

As a child of The Most High God, we have been Divinely anointed, appointed and authorized by the Lord of Hosts to annihilate the works of the devil. But you must remember, that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but spiritual! It is THE LIVING WORD OF THE LIVING GOD! When you speak God’s Word, it comes alive releasing the POWER to rebuke threats and pull down the strongholds of your enemies, unmercifully! If Satan is bold enough to raise his ugly head, because you are IN Christ, you have been empowered to step on his throat and cut off his head!

I must caution you to beware of one of the enemies most effective weapons that he assails against God’s elect in an attempt to diminish our Confidence, Trust and Hope in God is FEAR (FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL)! As soldiers in The Army of The Lord, you must stay on high alert, clothed in The Whole Armor of God, armed with the mindset of Christ, fully persuaded that “Greater Is He That Is Living In Me Than He Who’s In This World And by The GRACE of GOD, we shall overcome the wiles of the devil! (Ref. 1John 4:4, Ephesians 6:11)

Next, remember, fear flourishes in isolation! Therefore, it’s paramont for the successful conquest of every believer to endeavor to keep our consciousness anchored securely in The Revelation that we are never alone! Our God is Jehovah Shamah! Hence, He’s not coming, HE IS ALREADY HERE ready, willing and able to execute judgment on your behalf! (Heb. 13:5, Deut. 31:6)
Finally my Precious one, rest assured you and God make a majority! So, take a stand, dig in your heels, draw a line in the sand and with audaciously Holy Boldness proclaim, “COME WHAT MAY, I WILL TRUST IN THEE, MY GOD; NOW DEVIL, ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!”
The same God Who delivered your po’ soul from the clutches of eternal damnation, will He not deliver your feet from falling prey to those awaiting to conquer your hope as well?  #Shonuff!
As our steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by The Good Shepherd, we walk obediently in the path that God sets before us,  confident of this very thing! “Goodness and Mercy SHALL accompany me all the days of my life! And, EVEN as God allows me to I walk thru valleys overshadowed by death, my soul shall delight in the Light of His Loving Presence!”

 

YEP! THAT’S THE FEAR FACTOR OF A BELIEVER that SATAN  seems to  FORGETS and CERTAINLY WANTS U 2..COURAGEOUS TRUST!!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

Once again, we’re excited that you have joined us today in our Weekly Day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting. As we approach The Throne Room of our King, with up stretched arms and open hearts, we’re forever grateful for the privilege that He has afforded every believer to enter into His Presence, casting all of our care upon Him and finding Mercy, Grace and Very Present Help in these vexing times! Shall we pray…
I WILL FOREVER, LIFT MINE EYES 2 CALVARY! 2 VIEW THE CROSS, WHERE JESUS DIED 4 ME! HOW MARVELOUS, THAT GRACE THAT CAUGHT MY FALLEN SOUL! HE LOOKED BEYOND ALLLLL MY FAULTS AND SAW MY NEED! WITH MY HANDS LIFTED UP AND MY MOUTH FILLED WITH PRAIZ! WITH A HEART OF THANKSGIVING, I WILL CONTINUOSLY BLESS THEE O LORD!
Heavenly Father, we come one more time, bowing reverently before Your Awesomeness! We thank You for allowing us to see this day! Because we refuse to take anything for granted, having so much to thank You for and, we praise You for our being able to breathe, see, to hear, walk, talk and even think to pray this morning!
We thank You for being such a forgiving and understanding God and Father! Not only have You have done so much for each and every one of us, You keep right on blessing us over and over again! Abba Father, forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to Your Heart. Assured that 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!
Sweet Jesus, teach us to see SIN through Your eyes and to acknowledge it as evil wickedness and rebellion against the Creator and Lover of our souls, The Giver of All Life! And when we sin, quicken our spirit to repent immediately, and confess our wrongdoing, that we might receive the Gracious forgiveness of our Heavenly Father!
Abba Father, as we embrace the day ahead, help us to maintain an attitude of gratitude. Please keep us safe from all hurt, harm and danger. Let us make the best of each moment that You gift to us! Lord Jesus, clear our minds so that we can hear from You and cleanse our hearts that we may deny ourselves, trust and submit to Your Will.
Dear Lord, help us to not whine and whimper over things we have no control. And when this world closes in upon us, invite us to slip away to a quiet place to pray. You have taught us that prayer is our best response when pushed beyond our limits. We thank You also because I know that when I can’t pray, You listen to my heart and interpret every moan, groan and sigh of my spirit! Father, we thank You that despite of our fractures and dysfunctions , You are yet able to use us to do Your will ensuring The You Alone get The Glory!
Abba Father, we thank You for giving us a Spirit of generosity that allows us to be a blessing to others. Keep us strong that we may help the weak. Keep us uplifted that we may have words of encouragement for others. We pray for those who are lost and can’t find their way, trusting You to make a way out of no way. We pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood, assure them that we are accepted and beloved by You. We pray for those who don’t know You intimately, that You are putting a burning desire to seek Your Face like never before.  As we pray 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, we’re trusting that the veil is being removed from their minds and they can see Your Glory reflected in the Life and testimony of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ!
Father, looking back over our lives, we can’t help but cry out, Thankya! We will always remember that Blessed Day when You opened our hearts and minds, enabling us to believe and receive the revelation of the Saving Grace of Jesus Christ! We know that You have no respect of persons, and this Grace is yet available to any who will ask!
Father, we know that faith in God not only changes people, it changes us; and only You, O God, have the Power to perfect those things that concern us! We pray for all our sisters and brothers and for every family member and friends! We’re praying for peace, unity, love, joy and hope in our homes, communities, our nations and The Church Universal!
We believing that Your Divine Favor is being poured out upon every soul and their faith and commitment are rising to a level that they’re faithful and obedient to support the building of You Kingdom in the earth! As Your Word promises Your desire is that we have no lack, we’re believing You to release supernatural abundance in the area of finances, enabling Your children to not only come of of debt but also because they put You first, all their needs will be met exceeding all that they can ask or think. In Jesus Name!
Father, we pray that you will touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. Heavenly Father, You have decreed that You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Even as you walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! Lord Jesus, Your Word declares that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!
Father, we lift up our children, our childrens’ children by faith right now, committing them into Your care, realizing that before the Foundation of this World, You had 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!
Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher, Teacher Missionary, Deacon, musician choir director/member, praise team, liturgical dancer, usher and church member!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!

 

Precious Lord, as You know,  in the midst of social division,  our country has just gone through a new election process, therefore, as instructed in Your Word, we lift up every newly elected and incumbent state and federal government official, judicial, legislative, corporate and public service employee! We’re believing that You are speaking to them in dreams and visions and their hearts are being opened to hear and obey Your Will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Word as decreed that You shall never relinquish one iota of Your Sovereinty, The government of this world shall rest upon Your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
Holy Spirit, intervene on our behalf to expose and rebuke the murdering spirit, the spirit of doubt, unbelief, hesitation, manipulation and slouthfulness and release us 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 for us! Birth in us new things, releasing an anointing to destroy yokes, and giving us 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!
Father, we declare and decree that every demonic-induced spirit of sickness and disease, yokes of oppression, depression, addiction, perversion, covetousness, bitterness and resentment, rejection, un-forgiveness, hopelessness, helplessness, doubt and fear is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

 

Father, we wait humbly in confidence and quietness, trusting wholly that every worker of iniquity is trembling in terror as they depart in shameful defeat, acknowledging that You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!
Heavenly Father, we also ask that every eye that reads this, knows that there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than Our God. Give us hope-filled rest that every battle is in Your Almighty Hand for You are El Shaddai!
We pray, Lord Jesus, that these words be rceived and conceived into every heart and spirit that reads them and that every mouth shall gladly confess that Your Word shall not return unto You void, but shall fulfill every assignment that they are sent to accomplish!
Abba Father, being fully persuaded, we now seal this prayer with a Hallelujah/Thank You declaring and decreeing, IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of OUR REDEEMER, JESUS. Amen 3X and It Is So!
Now every Blood-Washed, Born-Again Child of The Living God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL ONE SOMEBODY THAT JESUS IS OUR RESURRECTED LORD AND KING 2 THE GLORY OF GOD OUR FATHER!
SELAH!

Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27.

Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:13
Dual Citizenship! WOW! Living in this world yet at the same time recognizing that we’re aliens of another Kingdom, occupying this place in time as carriers of The Glory until the return of Jesus Christ, The King is absolutely-mind-blowingly-awemaazin, huh?

Sometimes, life comes at us so hard and so fast that we lose consciousness of the core of our faith—Truth—exposing our hearts to potentially being ripped betwixt two realities! Hence, the sacred confident heritage of the saints is often disrupted by the intrusive presence of aggravating adverse circumstances!

Now, don’t get it twisted! I’m not suggesting that we forget we’ve been called and chosen to be instruments of righteousness at The Lord’s bidding. Hopefully, most of us have long since gotten past that issue and believe with all our hearts that one day we will live eternally in Heaven with our Father. BUT! !!! It’s the meantime that keeps tripping us up! C’mon nah! Don’t look at me with that tone of voice! Y’all already know how our frail-flawed-fickle, self-centered-fleshy-nature keeps drawing us back to the ol’ days when we sat on The Throne of our hearts, making decisions and judgments according to what seemed right in our own minds! Can I getta real Amen?

Remember when that ol’ man had nothing to restrain us from focusing all our time, thoughts and energy on getting whatever we wanted, whenever we thought we needed? We were clueless that we were actually being used by rulers of darkness, hell bent on pulling us away from The Omnipresence, Omniscience, Omnipotence Creator and driving us head first into a sink hole of fear, discouragement, hopelessness and failure!

YEP! We were oblivious to the enemy’s wicked schemes strategically designed to entrap us; besieging our minds with his ticker-tape alerts forecasting the high probability of hurricane wind gusts, overcast skies of dread, gloom and doom! Unfortunately, far too many of us are completely unaware of Satan’s devices and actually come into agreement with him; setting the course for fulfillment of the very thing we fear! WOW! #Didjaheardat?

When we surrender to our fears, we give validity to them thereby proving Lucifer, The Father of Lies, to be a true prophet! That is until Holy Spirit quickens us our carnal minds and reminds us that when we accept The Saving Grace of Jesus Christ, we’re no longer obligated or enslaved to obey our former Task Master! When we come to ourselves, purposing our hearts to acknowledge The Greater One abiding in us, we have the power to slam the devil down to his rightful place (under our feet)!

Beloved, Trust2kno, when YOU truly believe GOD, you’re supernaturally empowered to over-rule the demonic influences and activate God’s spiritual weaponry that renders the Tormentor virtually helpless and hopelessly defeated! By commanding our minds to think of the Goodness of Jesus and all that He has done, continues to do and promises to do—the Joy of The Lord swells up in our hearts, illuminating our thoughts, erupting inevitable praise! Suddenly, The Glory of His Presence shows up filling our hearts and minds with a peace that passes all understanding! (Ref. 2 Corinthians 10:4 and Philippians 4:7)

Precious ones, the next time that lying devil tries to steal your hope, don’t fall for it, jus throw THE ROCK at him and THINK YOURSELF HAPPY WITH PRAISE!

Try this on for size, “devil, I will bless the LORD at ALL times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth!” (Ps. 34:1) Then pick up another ROCK and seal the victory!“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” (Ps. 16:11)

Good morning Kingdom Children of The Most High God! GOTTA MOMENT? AWESOME!

Here we go again and we’re so excited that you have joined us in our Thursdays’ Day of Corporate Fasting and Prayer! The Bible tells us that some things can only be released through effective fervent fasting and prayer. In deed we must all agree that we need to pray more NOW THAN EVER BEFORE! Let’s enter into The Majestic Throne Room of The Lord and Creator of Life!

Blessed be the Name of The Lord! He is Worthy to be praised and Adored! So let’s lift our hands on one accord! Singing Blessed Be the Name! BLESSED BE THE NAME! BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD! HE’s sweet I know, Jesus is sweet I know! Storm clouds may rise; strong winds may blow! But, I’ll tell the world, wherever I go, that I’ve found my Savior…and HE’S SWEET I KNOW! I really love the Lorrrddd…I REALLY LOVE THE LORD! U DON’T KNOW WHAT HE’S DONE FOR ME! HE GAVE ME THE VICTORYYYY! I LUV HIM! I LUV HIMMMM..IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII REAALLLYYY LUUUUUVVVV THE LORD!

AS WE’RE PRAYING, TRUSTING, WE’RE BELIEVING & DECLARING….
Abba Father, we come before You today, not in our own righteousness but in the Magnificent, All Powerful Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus! As we come clothed in humble obedience, we’re rejoicing, praising and thanking You for blessing us to see this brand new day! We’re  sooo grateful, Heavenly Father, for one more opportunity to embrace and enjoy the Abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace!

Daddy, as we thank You for being LORD of our Salvation, Deliverance, Hope, Breakthrough and Provision, we’re forever eternally grateful that despite knowing our frame, Your Faithful Commpassion yet allows You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to continuously supply and minister to all our need! Therefore,  before we go any further, we come now seeking Forgiveness, Mercy and Grace, convinced that You Who searches our hearts is able and willing to cleanse us from unrighteousness and restore us to right fellowship in Your Kingdom!

We praise You today Lord, for renewing our strength, encouraging our hearts and enlightening our understanding. We recognize that You, our Great High Priest, is able to search the secret things, and even when our hearts condemn us, Your Lovingkindness is greater than our broken and contrite spirits! As we come to the end of ourselves, we draw near to You, repenting openly, relying and depending wholly on the Faithfulness of Your Word!

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that no man can come to You except You draw them! Therefore,  we intercede on behalf of every unsaved soul, asking that as Your eyes continue to search the hearts of mankind, quicken our hearts and minds with the Spirit of Godly-repentance that all will cry out to You, sincerely confessing ‘YES’ to your Mercy and Grace toreceive You as personal Lord and Savior today. As You draw them near to You,  because it’s not Your Will that any should perish, but that all would run quickly to Your Loving Arms and receive Your Saving Grace, You will save them! Father, as You pick them up, we’re believing that You’re directing their footsteps to a local Church home where they will be welcomed by their Kingdom Brothers and Sistas, loved, encouraged, nourished, and taught how to live out their lives pleasing and glorifying You!

Abba Father, we pray for every backslider who has walked away from the fold for whatever reason! Your Word assures us that You have never issued a divorce decree from any who has come into covenant relationship with You. We ask Holy Spirit to prick the heart and mind of those who have fallen prey to the Deceiver’s lies right now. Let them know that You’re looking, waiting with Your arms open wide to receive them in joyful celebration as they return to Your Kingdom! Lord, plant a ‘commited YES’ into their hearts and minds that restores and empowers them to be Faithful witnesses to a lost and dying wold, In Jesus Name! Amen 3X!

Sweet Jesus, touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, heart, kidney, lung, liver, bone disease, drug and alcohol addictions, mental oppression and depression, Alzheimer, dementia, strokes, high/low blood pressure! Lord we know that You have the Power to rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. Lord, Your Word declares that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name!

Lord, as we lift up every believer who is experiencing the torment of grief, anxiety and weariness, those who have lost loved-ones unexpectantly, those who’ve been victimized by senseless killings, those who are caretakers of ailing loved ones, those who are struggling to remain hopeful as they sit at the bedsides of those whom the doctors have gone as far as they know, yet today they’re determined to hold on to Your Hand by faith today! We lift up marriages that are being target by Satan, broken family/friends relationships. We speak revival and restoration into their hearts, minds immdiately! We rebuke the Spirit of disobedence and rebellion and command it to leave in Jesus Name! We declare respect, humility, gratitude, loyalty and obedience over our children, spouses and family members, in Jeus Name!

Abba Father, we declare and agree that as we are yet praying, You are releasing Divine Power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection into the lives of Your people. We Thankya Father, that as You preserve us thru the tests, keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE, we shall remain fully-confident that at Your APPOINTED TIME, You will bring us out testifying that we are more than conquers because You have wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and rewarded our souls as promised in Your Word!

Sweet Holy Spirit, thank You for an outpouring of Your Divine Favor upon each and every one of your children who are seeking employment, promotion, prompt approval for student/car/home loans, favorable resolutions of legal matters and assure them that YOU are Jehovah Jareh, who shall supply all of their need according to Your Riches in Glory!

Father, because You are a Covenant Keeping God, by faith,  we lift up our children, our children’s children,  we abort every curse that’s been ordered against their lives and we cancel every plot and scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we remember how far You have brought us and realizing that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too and we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated under the watchful care of Your eyes! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies releasing a Spirit of Love, Holiness, Faithfulness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Sweet Jesus,  recognizing October as being Pastors Appreciation Month, we lift up every spiritual leader that You’ve called to proclaim The Gospel of Jesus Christ. We ask that You touch their hearts and minds, strengthen and encourage them to cast their cares upon You, trusting You to lead and guide them as they shepherd the flock that You’ve entrusted to them. Remind them that except You build the House they labor in vain, except You keep the City the watchman waits in vain. Uplift those who have become weired by the rebellious and resentful to keep believing for immediate manifestation of that special miracle, fulfillment of the vision! Encourage the souls of all who have yet determined to keep their hands to the gospel plow!

We’re trusting and believing that as You continue to Grace them to be the holy humble examples in their homes, marketplace, communities and churches that will cause those who are in their sphere of influence to love, trust and live everyday of life serving and glorifying You, You shall release a double portion of Your Anointing to stand flat-footed, uncompromisingly and relentlessly on the Wall, proclaiming The Whole Counsel of Your Word under the power and conviction of Holy Spirit, in Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Heavenly Father, as You’ve taught us to do, we lift up our political, social, judicial, business, education, healthcare, daycare and public service worker and leaders, trusting You to touch the hearts of each one of them! Remind them that Power Belongs to GOD! Instruct their hearts through dreams and nite visions convicting unto repentance, convincing them that they’re merely instruments in Your Plan to establish Your Kingdom in the earth as it is in Heaven! Rebuke the spirit of pride and arrogance, lying and deception, greed and corruption! Remind them that as You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens, are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will Justly reward accordingly!
Abba Father, we 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 Soberness is being released now, in Jesus Name! We’re declaring and trusting that each morning Your children will awaken empowered with assuring Grace to accomplish every assignment and sleep peacefully every nite, confident of brand new hope-filled tomorrows!

Lord Jesus, send confirmation to those who are wavering as they’re waiting in faith for Your hand to move on our behalf. Thank You for allowing the pain that we’re experiencing to birth greatness in us! Transition us into new levels of Your anointing, opportunities, relationships, restoring that which is broken. Help us to move by faith, remembering not the former things but confidently reaching forward fully persuaded and anticipating that everything You’ve promised already is!

As we offer up this prayer of faith, we speak life, believing that The Blood of Jesus is covering our babies in daycare, our children in schools, our families, on their jobs, as they go and come in and that nothing shall cut our lives short, but we shall live and not die! Thank You for the great things You have prepared for the people of God!

Holy Father, we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope-filled expectation,  anticipating that every worker of iniquity is suddenly trembling violently in fear,  departing  immediately in shameful defeat and running away from Your people terrorized because You, The Creator and Sustainer of Life, have heard the voice of our weeping, supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Abba Father, in closing, we stand in agreement with The True and Living God, who hears and answers our prayers, and forgives our transgressions! Because You have chosen us, committing to love and care for us, our souls shout with unspeakable joy unto The One to Whom all men will come! We bow reverently 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, believing that ACCORDING TO YOUR PERFECT WILL, In The Exalted Name of JESUS IT IS SO, WE CRY AMEN  AND HALLELUUJAHHHH 3X !
Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES EVERYBODY AND CAN SAVE ANYBODY!

SELAH!

From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Psalm 61:2

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. Nahum 1:7

 

One of those most prominent, yet illusive, desires of humanity is a sense of security! Thanks to our progenitors, Adam and Eve, the moment that we succumbed to Satan’s  diabolic deception, we got what we wanted but lost what we had! Scriptures reveal the absolute perfection that they enjoyed walking in The Will of Creator God! It’s nearly impossible for us to imagine but nevertheless, any and everything their pure hearts desired was readily available to them just for the asking, huh?  Howeverrrrr, the one thing God required of them was the same thing that the devil used to lure them away from what God commanded, faithful obedience!

Since mankind’s expulsion from The Paradise of The Garden Eden, we’ve been trying to find our own piece of peace in the midst of this sin-fated world we’ve been forced to inhabit. Adding insult to injury, from the moment Abel’s blood hit the earth, all of Cain’s descendants, were destined to sojourn throughout the earth, cursed and marked for The Righteous Vengeance of The Lord! This spirit of rebellion soon gave way to anger, spiraling into murder nailing the coffin shut for any hope of returning to the blissful state of innocence and intimacy that once endowed God’s Most Precious Creation!
Despite the culmination of 21st Century’s technological achievements and the once unimaginable creative creature comforts and conveniences, a quick glance at any day’s breaking news headlines, confirm that man’s aspiration for attaining such lofty state of uninterrupted serenity, equanimity and freedom from disturbances continues to evade us!

BUT! Thanks Be To GOD! Jehovah’s Loyal Love (refusing to be denied) ordained a Perfect Rest for anyone who cries out to Him earnestly, in sincere contrition for Salvation IN THE PERSON OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST! (Ref. 1 Peter 1:20)

Granted, looking back from this side of Calvary’s Cross, it’s more convenient and certainly more self-serving to blame the horrid conditions of our world on the careless apathy of our first parents. And, depending on the weight of the trial or struggle, we just might point our fist toward God.  #ijs! After all, HE’S GOD and HE could’ve stopped sin in it’s track, right? Yet  gratefully, Wisdom and Grace soon deter us from persisting in such foolishness!

The truth of the matter is that the seed of sin has regenerated, thus degenerating our morality, perverting our sense of right and wrong to the extent that we can no longer trust in the arms of flesh, particularly our own hearts!

BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD! HALLELUJAH 3X!!!

In the midst of these perilous times, we need to know that God has prepared (by HIS Own Hand), a safe haven for those of us, who will place our personal trust, confidence and absolute reliance in the immutability of God’s Righteous Character: Holy, Just, Truth, Honor and Omnipotent Power!

When life is raging beyond what you can weather and the billows of  trauma, trouble  and trials threaten to devour you, remember there is a prepared place of refuge from the gross darkness!  As we learn to walk faithfully and obediently abiding  in Christ Jesus, God opens a way of escaping  the cares of this world to dwell under the Wings of Adonai,  finding consoling rest and safety from hurt and harm in this life and the in life to come!

The name of the Lords a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.” Proverbs 18:10

Beloved, the moment we make a conscious irretrievable decision to not lean to our own interpretations, but determine to acknowledge, from the seat of your soul, that regardless of all of the circumstantial evidence, God’s Unfailing Love shall never forsake you, you will begin to experience unspeakable Joy and overwhelming Peace that jus don’t make no sense! Didjaheardat? Awemaazing, huh?

YEP! TRUST2KNO, WHEN THE STORMS OF LIFE ARE AUDACIOUSLY RAVAGING YOUR SOUL’S PEACE AND THE FRENZIED SURGES OF UNCERTANTY ARE THREATENING TO MAKE YOU LOSE YOUR FOOTING, THERE IS A DEATH-DEFYING ROCK OF REFUGE, FOR THOSE WHO DARE TO COMMIT THEIR BEING TO THE FAITHFULNESS OF THEIR HEAVENLY FATHER, TO RUN BOLDLY TO THE LIGHT HOUSE…HIS NAME IS JESUS!

SELAH!

We understand that the enemy has launched a decree to destroy the Hope and Joy of God’s elect, particularly the next generation! But God says that the violent shall pursue, recover and conquer everything that God has given us. Our children are our gifts from God! The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but Mighty thru God for the pulling down strongholds.

Abba Father, as we come before You today, In the Magnificent, All Powerful Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus, we’re determined to rejoice, praise and thank You for blessing us to see 1 more day! Looking back, we know that it was no goodness of our own but solelyYour Faithful Love that has allowed us to be here to see the beginning of a new day that we’ve never seen or experienced! Because of Your Benevolence, we thank You, Father for another opportunity to embrace the outpouring and abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace!

Father,  remembering, we bless You for the day that You opened our hearts enabling us to recognize and receive the saving Grace in the Life, Death, Burial and Resurrection of Your Son, Jesus! We acknowledge that because it pleased You, even though there was absolutely nothing in us lovable nor worthy of this honor and privilege, You called us to be Your very own children! Lord Jesus, we are eternally grateful that we’re here now only because You so purposed in Your Heart and by Your Own Hand!  And for this cause, we shall Bless Your Name at all times!

 

We’re thankful that even knowing our frame, Your Faithfulness and Compassion continuously provokesYou to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to see and minister to every one of our need! Therefore, we shall never fail to acknowledge You Alone as The True and Living God of our Salvation, our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision!

Once, again, Heavenly Father, out of the sincerity of our hearts, that are being continuously open to, depending and relying solely upon You, we’re prazing You for it is in You that we live, move and have our very being!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we lift up all those who lives are and have been affected by the catastrophic hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, fires, floods and mountain-moving physical and spiritual landslides! Hold back the flood waters, rebuke the winds and bind the hand of death and destruction! Send hope, healing, deliverance and restoration wherever it’s needed! Loose Your legions of ministering agents to meet the needs of Your people, releasing blessings and breakthroughs into their lives! Bind the Spirits of Death, Poverty and Defeat!  Lord, let them know that these things are signs that Your Word is being fulfilled in real-time, how precious and fragile life is, therefore we must all prepare our souls for Your soon coming return!  In Jesus Name! 

And because no man can come close to the Father except You draw them, we pray that as Your eyes go to and fro through this earth searching the hearts of mankind, You draw and save the lost, reclaim every back-slider and direct their footsteps to the community of believers where they will be welcomed in Love, encouraged, strengthen, and taught Your Word, Way and Will that they may be vessels of honor, reflecting Godliness in the midst of this dark, fallen desperately wicked world! ir local church home today. As we pray, we’re believing that many of our unsaved loved ones and friends will be saved before the end of 2018 and will join our Eternal Family! In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!
Abba Father, because we know that there’s no failure in You, we’re asking You to touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, high/low blood pressure, heart disease, bone disease, premature development, kidney/lung failure, Altism, HIV, HPV, Herpes, Sickle Cell Disease, Alzheimer, Dementia, Bi-Polar, arthritis and every other satanically induced spirit of mental perversion, depression/oppression/addiction! We’re believing You to rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake!  Lord, YOUR infallable WORD has decreed that we were healed by the wounds in Jesus’ side and by the stripes that Jesus bore on His back, we have been redeemed  from the curse and penalty of SIN! We’re yet standing on Your Eternal Authority as Creator and Ruler of the Ages, that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name!

Precious Lord, remember those who are grieving the loss of loved ones, those who’re experiencing broken marriages, financial lack, those rebellious children, those who are being victimized by domestic, physical, mental, sexual abused, those who are being overlooked, held down and even abused by racial/gender prejudice in the government, justice systems and the marketplace. We’re believing You to intervene on their behalf, exposing perpetrators, releasing miraculous Deliverances, Healing, Favor and Prosperity, unexpected promotions, opening up opportunities for entrepreneurship, book contracts, increasing education grants, lower interest mortgage rates, changing credit reports, canceling debts, establishing and overturning unfavorable medical prognosis and legal decisions to give us the victory that the world might know Who You are and what faith in God can do!

Lord, thank You for the testimonies that are going forth from every believer today, that as we stand beneath an Open Heaven and by faith holding on to Your Hand, You are releasing from the portals of The Throne Room, a double portion of Divine power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection. Help us to understand that because we are royal priests, a holy nation unto You, failure is not final and our victorious testimonies shall provoke envy of other nations who have not submitted to The True God but who yet serve false gods!

Lord, we’re believing You to preserve Your elect thru every tests that we go thru! Keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE, fully-confident that You shall bring everyone of us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed, possessing the rewards as You have promised in Your Word!

Heavenly Father, we lift up our political, social, judicial, business, religious leaders, trusting You to shake up their hearts that they might FEAR You  as King of kings and Lord of lords!! Grace them to be the holy humble servants and examples in their homes, marketplace, communities and churches that will cause those who are in their sphere of influence to love, trust and live everyday of life serving and glorifying You, Our Heavenly Father!

Abba Father, as You have taught us to speak life, we declare that You will cover our babies in daycare, our children in schools, colleges and universities, our families on their jobs, in nursing homes, hospitals, treatment centers, court rooms and prisons as they go out and come in and that nothing shall cut our lives short, but we shall live and not die  declaring the Wonderous Works of God! Thank You for the great things You have prepared for the people of God!

As we pray for our enemies, those who despitefully use us, help us to bless those who are bitter and speak evil of us that our faith may be a sign that we belong to you! We pronounce blessing, joy, peace, favor upon all who trust You, as You prepare a table before our enemies!

Abba Father, we pray that every demonic-induced spirit of fear, failure, rejection, hopelessness and disappointment, doubt, confusion and anxiety be defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Clarity is being released now! We’re trusting that each morning Your children will awaken empowered with assuring grace to accomplish every assignment and sleep peacefully every nite, confident of earnest hope-filled tomorrows! in Jesus Name!

Lord, we wait in confident quietness, trusting wholly that suddenly, every worker of iniquity is trembling and departing in shame and defeat, turning their backs and running away from Your people, knowing that inspite of their threats, You Are The Way Maker, Promise Keeper, Miracle Worker, The Light In The Darkness  has heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Father, we know that there’s so many other things that we could’ve, should’ve prayed for and about, however, because You are our Great High Priest, interceding on our behalf, You’re able to intercept and interpret every moan, groan and sigh coming from our spirits and fix it Jesus! 

In closing, we thank, honor and praise You NOW, BELIEVING that every request and supplication that has been set before you today…IT IS DONE! 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 SAVES AND CARES!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray and Praiz!
