SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. Psalm 113:4

But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life. Fear not: for I am with thee:… Isaiah 43:1-5

 

Trying to find certainty admidst a world that’s permeated with uncertainty is becoming increasingly arduous today, huh? One thing for certain, two things for sure: Life happens fast and furious! Preparing for the unexpected is a challenge for any of us! Saved and Unsaved alike!

Yet as believers in The Lordship of Jesus Christ, we’re taught to do just that! The Word of God warns us that when faced with seemingly overwhelming circumstances, to resist panic and anxiety! How many times has your circumstantial evidence threatened to destroy all hope for recovering the calmness that we once enjoyed walking in the comforting Presence of God’s Favor? #bothhandsup!

Nevertheless, time and wisdom have trained us that Satan delights in using the sporadic turbulent winds and  upheaval waves of chaos, temptations and uncertainty to manipulate and vex the minds of unsuspecting sainted-souls of God’s elect.

 

From the beginning, The Master of Diabolic Deception, has proven himself quite adept in distracting our hearts away from what we know of God!  He suptly moves in derailing and transitioning our commitment to unwavering trust  into questioning, doubt, unbelief; ultimately dissipating our hope-filled confidence into pits of of desperation, fear and despair! Don’t shout me down nah?

While it sometimes appears as if Satan has been declared the victor, it behooves you to not fall for the ‘ookey-doke’, and never ever underestimate The Sovereign Power of God! 

Remember, your enemies can’t intrude into your life, except God allows! TRUST2KNO, the only reason  that He ever permits a demon to invade your personal space, is to prove that GOD’S Purpose excels far beyond your temporary pain and discomfort!

Granted, it’s not easy to deny what’s right before your eyes! However, the things you see with your natural vision does not necessarily negate the spiritual reality that there’s more with you than there is against you. According to God’s Word, what we see is temporal, but the unseen is ETERNAL!  The enemy’s arsenal is flanked by confusion, isolation, intimidation teeming in FEAR. #FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL! BUT, TAKE ANOTHER LOOK!  Chances are, it ain’t what it looks like!  GOD has equipped us with HOLY GHOST POWER, LOVE AND A SOUND MIND! (Ref. 1 Peter 4:12-14) (1 John 4:4)

While Satan’s plotting to impede your confident reliance on God’s Presence and Prominence, your Loving Heavenly Father has a Irrevokable Plan, guaranteed to lead and guide you safely through the murky rivers of this life to the shores of Heaven’s Glory!  EVEN IFsome water gets into your boat,  YOU WON’T DROWN because  your life is anchored in the Rock!

Beloved,  jus keep clinging to The Eternal Hope of God’s Word, fully persuaded by Grace that whatever befalls you, it can’t stop your destiny! Ride out the storms in quiet confidence knowing GOD GOTCHA! (Ref. Hebrews 13:5)

JESUS LIVED ABOVE THE CIRCUMSTANCES! SO, WHAT’S UP WITH U?

SELAH!

Our Father and our God of Heaven and Earth, once again, we come before You humbled by Your Loving-Kindness, Awemaazing Grace and Tender Mercy! We do not take it for granted as if we have earned the right to live, but we’re eternally grateful for one more opportunity to behold The Glory of Your Presence! We know that it’s Your Power and Strength that has kept us alive today! Because of You we live, move and have our being! With our hearts rejoicing, hands lifted up and our lips forever praizing and thanking You for revealing to us such wondrous treasures that were hidden from our understanding, when we walked surrounded by darkness, as dead men in the earth without a God on our side! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!

Thank You for being our 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 don, 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 confss 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!”

Father, because You are Omniscient, Omnipresent,  and having walkd 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!

Sweet Jesus, we’re eternally grateful that 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, for being A 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, rebuke the winds and bind the hand of death an destruction! Send hope, healing, deliverance and restoration wherever it’s needed! In Jesus Name!

Lord, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word, You know that sometimes, it’s difficult to over-ride the noise of the pestilence, the chaos of uncertainty and the the down-pull of pain 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, now seeking refuge in the midst of storms, peace in the midst of the waves and hope for the faithful 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, 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 “new 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 determined to submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, learn to love and live their lives walking to please You First!

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 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 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!
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 Your people and come against our God -ordained Destiny! We rebuke the enemies of our minds, thanking You that nothing can stop the blessings or us from performing the greater works You have assigned to the 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, touch bodies, rebuke the demons of the minds, and emotions, disappointments, restore power, love and sound minds, hope and the JOY of Your Salvation. 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!
Sweet Holy Spirit, we bless You for The Spirit of Sonship that has raised us up calling us “MINE”! Therefore, as Children of The Light, empower us to rebuke venomous, hateful, words of racism because all flesh is of one BLOOD! We pray for the church to be The Church of The Bride of Christ! Strip us from every demonic influence! You have called us to be influencers in the midst of the lost and ungodly world. 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!

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 You will cover 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!
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.

Heavenly Father, as instructed, we pray for the leaders of our nation, corporate, judicial, education, financial institutions, health care providers, prison systems, community service worker! Touch their minds and hearts; speak to them in dreams and visions letting them know that You Who sit enthroned above the heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! We believe that because their hearts are in your hands, they are being continuously opened to hear and obey your will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your word as decreed that the government of this world shall rest upon your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of kings and Lord of lords!

Abba, we ask that You encourage and comfort the souls of Your elect who are 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 assurance that at the appointed time,You, will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word according to Your Riches in Glory!

Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of addiction, perversion 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 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, in closing, we stand in agreement with You 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 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 that, 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 3X and It Is So! Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES EVERYBODY!

SELAH!

GOOD MORNING BELOVED OF GOD! GOTTA MOMENT? AWESOME!

 

Once again we’re delighted that you’ve joined us in our Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Fasting and Prayers! We who have placed our confidence in The Saving Grace of The Lord Jesus Christ, are eternally grateful for each and every opportunity afforded to us to come before The Majestic Throne, finding Our Great High Priest to be A Very Present Help in the time of need! As we bow before our Maker, trusting Him to perfect every one of our concerns, we rejoice in His Wonder! Let’s enter in…

OOOH Sweet WONDER! OOOH, SWEET WONDER! JESUS, THE SON OF GOD! OOOHHH, SWEET WONDER! OOOOHHHH SSWEEETT WONDER! JESUS, THE SON OF GOD! JESUS! JESUS! JESUS! THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT THAT NAME! MASTER, SAVIOR! JESUS! LET HEAVEN AND EARTH PROCLAIM! KINGS AND KINGDOMS SHALL ALL PASS AWAY, BUT THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT THAT NAME! GOD OF HEAVEN, FEED ME ‘TIL I WANT NO MORE! HERE’S MY CUP! I LIFT IT UP, COME MAKE ME WHOLE…
Our Father and our God, we come today, lifting up The Name of Jesus! Lord, we bless You for The  Sacrificial Blood that You so freely shedding in our stead, which now allows us to come boldly into The Holy Presence of The Creator and Sustainer of all Life!  Today, we come lifting up holy hands and hope-filled hearts, praising and rejoicing in The Wonder of Your Glory! We thank You for so graciously awakening us to one more new day that You have made! We bless Your Name for life, health and strength! We thank You for a right mind, acknowledging that if it had not been for You keeping us even while we slept and slumbered in the night, our enemies would’ve destroyed us!

We know that nothing we’ve done or could do that was deserving of such Lovingkindness, but because of You are a Merciful God, You continue to look beyond our faults and faithfully minister to each and everyone of our needs! For this cause we bow in reverence of Your Awesomeness, praying that as You search our hearts and find anything that’s not pleasing in Your sight, please forgive us and take it out, and take it out by the root! Help us Holy Spirit to shew evil and to cling to righteousness that we might cause someone to see Jesus and inquire of Thee, “What must I do to be saved! In Jesus Name, we pray! Amen 3x!

We’re blessed knowing that it’s not Your Will that any man should perish, but that we’d all come to a Saving Knowledge of Jesus Christ. Because no man can come to The Father, except You draw them, we ask that You remember the lost today! Touch their stony hearts and transform it into hearts of flesh. Open the eyes of their understanding so that they will welcome a personal encounter with The Only Wise Savior who You sent to forgive and restore all those who have been ensnared by the sin nature of every unregenerated soul! Even as You did for us, snatch them out of Satan’s grip of deceit and let them see Your Glory in The Face of Jesus beckoning them to confess a “submitted SINCERE YES” to Your Will and Your Ways for humanity is Life Eternal in Your Presence!

Father, remember the backsliders who have allowed the lusts of this ungodly world to lure them back into those things which You delivered them from. Arrest them in The Holy Ghost and prick their hearts with a Spirit of Godly-Repentance that provokes their rebellious hearts to surrender confessing a “COMMITTED YES”, regretting ever having turned their backs from The Grace that they once enjoyed and come running back to The Safety of The Ark. Order their steps to the local church where they will be welcomed, loved, nurtured, encouraged and strengthen in Your Word and Ways that they might be witnesses of Light in the midst of this dark and untoward generation!

Father, we ask that You remember The Saints as we struggled to hold on to Your Promises amidst the choas, turmoil eminating from a people of unclean lips! Help us to remember that nothing happens except You allow it. Breath afresh The Wind of Your Glory into the spirits and souls of Your Elect that may have become wearied and wounded by the cares of this world. We are grateful that nothing is hidden from Your view, for You are Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent! We’re blessed that as Your Compassion draws nigh to those who are lonely, Your Strength is made perfect in our weakness, and Your Blood runs swiftly to the place where we hurt the most!

Father, help us to remember Your Covenant Keeping Power that when we grow weary in well-doing! Lift up every bowed down head today! Restore the Joy of Thy Salvation! Strengthen the feeble knees and send sweet Peace to those who are yet praying for the lost, heal and restore peace into the trouble homes, the marriages that are under fire, wayward disobedient children, those struggling with their finances, those who are being mistreated on their jobs, those who are tempted to give up and throw in the towel, those whose flesh is enduring the pressure of temptations to commit fornication and adultery, comfort those who are mourning the loss of loved ones, bless the precious babies in daycare, at babysitters, daycare providers, encourage the caregivers, those who are tormented by unprovoked threats, depression, rejections, addictions, insecurities and grief! Console the widows, those forgotten and downcast who have born the heat of the day and pushed and prayed us through! Lord, give them sweet Peace knowing that their labor is never in vain!

Lord, encourage all those who find it difficult to pray for those in authority but yet have a desire to deal righteously with the injustices of a world filled with institutionalized racial discrimination, corruption, arrogance, entitlement, nasty attitudes, greed, rage and hatred that’s intentionally inflicted upon those who are not like them and especially those of us who name the Name of Christ!

 

Abba Father, even as we’re praying, we’re believing You to intervene on our behalf, releasing miraculous Favor and Prosperity, unexpected promotions, opening up opportunities for entrepreneurship, increased education grants, lower interest mortgage rates, debt cancellations, book contracts and overturning legal decisions to give us the victory! Father, remember and keep us in Your Will that we might be examples to those who are looking for Hope in a hopeless, uncaring world!

 

Father, because You’ve sworn to be Faithful to generations of those who’ve placed our personal faith and trust in You, we’re lifting up our children, our grands and great-grand children and by faith we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives and cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we realize that You also have a plan and purpose for their lives! Therefore, we have the Blessed Assurance that their steps are being ordered by Your eyes and no weapon that’s formed against them shall prosper and every tongue that speaks against them is already condemned! We speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds and bodies. releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!
Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher, Missionary, Deacon, auxiliary leader/member, choir director/member, praise team and musician, usher, nurse, driver, parking attendant and custodial worker! Undergird them with Your Anointing and conviction to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people and those who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and ministry,You have ordained!

 

Heavenly Father, according to Your WORD, we pray for the leaders of our nation, government, corporate, judicial, education, financial institutions, healthcare services and public service workers!  We’re asking that You touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in dreams and visions letting them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! We believe that because their hearts are in Your Hands, they are being continuously opened to hear and obey Your Will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Word as decreed that The government of this world shall rest upon Your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Father, we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of physical and mental sickness and disease! Rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake! Heavenly Father, 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!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we thank You for intervening in our lives and thru The Blood of Jesus we have become Curse-Breakers and Blessing Carriers! Therefore, by The Power invested in us, we rebuke every curse that has been assigned to our families, our relationships, our bodies, our homes, our community and our nation! Look on us now and uphold us with Your Free Spirit. Fill our hearts with Confident Hope-filled Assurance that while weeping may endure for a night, at Your Appointed Time we will be delivered and The Peace of God that passes all understanding shall be restored! We thank You Holy Spirit for directing our hearts into God’s Love and Christ’s Perseverance! In Jesus Name, Amen 3x!

Lord Jesus, as Your children await Your Salvation, in confidence and quietness,  we’re continue rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling, suddenly departing in shameful defeat, recognizing 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!

Abba Father, we align our spirits, soul and body with Your Eternal Word! Because You have chosen us and brought us near to dwell safety and secure in House, we 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 that, You are making Your Ways and Salvation known among all nations as You Guide and Rule justly! Father, believing that IT IS DONE, In The Exalted Name of Jesus we offer up this prayer with a Holy Alleleujah! Amen 3X!

Beloved, every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LIVES, LOVES AND CARES 4 U 2!

LIVING WATERS

LIVING WATERS 2

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

He that believe on ME, as the Scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” John 7:38

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

Because I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen…” Isaiah 43:20b

 

In the natural, most expectant mothers anticipating blessed arrival of her new baby with unrestrained excitement, shops until she drops! At the same time, the realization that before she actually holds her beautiful bouncing bundle of joy in her arms, she must first endure the grueling discomfort and pain of labor and delivery, can’t help but cause a certain degree of apprehension.

Every woman who has had a baby knows that as the labor progresses, the pain intensifies. Although we’re unable to accurately determine what the baby goes through, we can safely assume, by reason of anatomy, making its way through some extremely tight places causes a certain amount of discomfort for the child as well. For nine months, the womb has been his home and now, he’s reluctantly forced to transition into the next level of life.

Hence, spiritually, our rebirthing process also requires intense laboring for deliverance. Every blood washed, born-again, child of the Living God has been impregnated with purpose and potential. However, making our transition from one realm of spiritual reality into another, (from grace 2 grace) ultimately involves some degree of violent struggle. The ol’ church used to say, no pain – no gain!

Consequently, as we matriculate from one level of spiritual maturity to the next, we’re forced to navigate through some tight circumstances. Sometimes, just as in the natural birthing process, in order to hasten the birth and avoid the complications and dangers associated with a dry birth, the doctor may deliberately puncture the embryonic sack. This process is called “breaking the water”.

Likewise, to ensure that a believer transitions spiritually into our highest potential, the spiritual mid-wife, The Holy Spirit, fills His chosen with soul refreshing, sweet living waters drawn from the Wells of Salvation! This water is called Joy.  (Ref. Isaiah 12:3) This joy is not a state of mind neither is it a fleeting emotion; but to a believer facing the challenges and afflictions incurred through famine and drought of  the desert storms of life, JOY becomes a Weapon of Mass Destruction!

Saints, whatever you’re going through, YOU ARE NEVER ALONE!  While weeping may endure for a night, God has promised, Joy is coming in the morning!  (Ref. Psalm 30:5) God has chosen you as HIS very Own BELOVED!  Keep in mind that in God’s Kingdom, purpose always trumps pain! TRUST2KNOthat pain you’re now experiencing  is only a sign that Holy Spirit has just induced your labor and your water is about to break! 

Don’t sweat the process, God is positioning you into the next stage of Abundant Everlasting Life! #SERIOUSLY !!!

GM Precious Children of The Most High God! GOTTA MOMENT? AWESOME!

We’re delighted that you’ve joined us, once again, in our Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Fasting and Prayer! Needless to say, there’s yet so much to seek The Face of God for, Amen? But Thanks Be To God, in the midst of soul-vexing times, we know Where to go and Who to call on to find Love, Peace, Hope and Rest for our weary souls! For we have a Heavenly FATHER Who CARES! Let’s enter into The Throne Room together…

 

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way, When sorrows like sea billows roll;Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, IT IS WELL, IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL! IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL, IT IS WELL, IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL…WITH MY HANDS LIFTED UP, AND MY MOUTH FILLED WITH PRAISE!! WITH A HEART OF THANKSGIVING, I WILL BLESS THEE OOOHH LORD….

 

Father of All Glory, Honor, Comfort, Strength, Wisdom and Joy, into thine Hands, we lift up our souls! For we know that You are LORD of Heaven and Earth! Besides Thee, there is none else to save, deliver and heal! We extol Your  HOLY Name above every other name that can be named! As You have decreed, we exalt Your Word, even above Your Name! Thank You for blessing us to enjoy one more day of Your Presence and Providential Care! Thank You for revealing to us such wondrous treasures that were hidden from our understanding, when we walked surrounded by darkness, as dead men in the earth without a God on our side! We bless You for we know that it’s IN YOU that we live, move and have our being! 

We come before You now, humbled by Your Loving-kindness, clothed in assurance that because of The Precious Blood that was shed on Calvary’s Cross, the Scepter is always extended towards Your Children, allowing us to come boldly before The Majestic Throne to find Hope and Help in the time of need, in the Name of JESUS!

Abba Father,  forgive our tendency towards willfully relinquishing our faith to do, think and speak those things that are not pleasing in Your sight! We’re eternally grateful that because of The Sacrificial Atoning Death and Resurrection of Jesus, Your Compassionate Faithfulness and Deep Love for us, allows You to look beyond our faults and failures, forgive us our sin, cleanse our hearts and hands in The Blood of Jesus, restoring our rightful fellowship and satisfy all our need, according to Your Riches in Glory!

Today,  we offer up glorious praise, from hearts open to, depending and relying only on You for renewed power, strength and understanding to apply Your statues to our lives that we may enjoy the abundant lives that You have predestined for us now and forever!

Lord Jesus, because YOU ARE LORDthere is never a space or time when YOU are not in absolute contr ol of all things! Your WORD promised to keep us hidden under The BLOOD! Hence, just as You provided Light and Provision for Your people in Goshen, even in these days of imminent terror, tragedy, chaos and destruction, famine, wars and rumors of war, we know that the safest place in this whole world is in YOUR perfect Will!  We trust that no weapon that is formed against us shall prosper and every tongue that rises up against Your children, thou shall condemn!

Sweet Jesus, because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we interceded on behalf of every unsaved soul, asking You to quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance into their heart and in their mind that they will come to You today confessing with their mouths “a sincere Yes” to your Gift of Grace and receive You now as their personal Savior and Lord! We’re believing that You are directing their footsteps, placing and settling them into a local church home today where they will be nurtured and encouraged to live holy, acceptable and committed to faithful obedience to Your Word!

Precious Lord, we ask You reclaim every soul that has turned their back and walked away from Your Will! Plant a new “commitment YES” in the soil of their hearts and minds! Make today the day that they come back to You and back to The Body of Christ where they will submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, learn to love and live their lives denying the lust of their flesh, walking daily to please and Glorify You to this lost, dark and dying world!

Abba Father, we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake! Heavenly Father,  we know 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!

Lord, we lift up every believer who is struggling to hold on to Your Word of faith today, trusting that You to release Divine Power, Supernatural Hope, Strength, Health,  Wholeness, Provision, Prosperity and Protection. Father! We’re trusting You to preserve each and everyone of us thru the tests that we must go thru, keeping our minds constantly stayed on YOUR PRESENCE, fully-confident that at Your appointed time,You will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with every reward as You have promised in Your Word.

Sweet Jesus, while Your Word tells us that You’ve not given us the Spirit of Fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind, You knowing the frailness and fickleness of our flesh, know we’re pronedto give into the piercing temptations of Satan’s thorns, leaving our hearts filled with anxiety, stress, disappointment, doubt, hopelessness, rejection and unbelief! But You’ve assured us that You have not left us comfortless, but You’ve sent Holy Spirit to abide IN us, empowering us to escape and overcome the plots of the wicked! For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but Mighty Thru God to pull down the strongholds, cast down perverted images and illicit seductions that entice us to leave the path of righteousness, turn back to and again enslave us in bondage to the will and ways of the Kingdom of Darkness!

It is with exceeding Joy, that we stand with boldness, in The Holy Ghost, anchored in Hope and Love, grounded in our right mind, clothed in the full armor of God, anointed and authorized to pull down every strong hold that the enemy shall attempt to take us captive to! By the Power invested in us, we bind the works of the enemy; we bind the works of the flesh, every plan, plot, scheme and we REBUKE AND BIND every satanic-induced plan, ungodly spirits of poverty, lack, unholy desire and want! We CANCEL, REPEAL & REPLACE every curse that has been spoken against the children of God,  and RELEASE blessings and increase in every area of our lives, in The Name  LORD JESUS!

Father, as we lift up our children, our children’s children; by faith we cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them, as we’re committing them into Your Providential Care and Protection, we release a Spirit of Truth and Excellence upon their spirit, souls, minds and bodies! In Jesus Name, Amen 3x! We gratefully acknowledge that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too’ therefore, we have the Blessed Assurance that even when we can’t see them, their steps are being ordered by Your eyes!

Heavenly Father, as instructed, we lift up the government/legislative leaders of every nation of this world, judicial, corporate, education, financial, food service, public service and health care institutional leaders! We’re asking that You touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in dreams and visions letting them know that You Who Sit Sovereignly Enthroned Above the Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! We believe that because their hearts are in Your Hands, they are being continuously opened to hear and obey Your Will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Word as decreed that The government of this world shall rest upon Your shoulders because You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Minister, Missionary, Preacher and Teacher. 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 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 fall deeply in love with JESUS, and the people of God, fully committed to love, trust and live everyday of life serving and glorifying You, Our Heavenly Father!

Father, we’re trusting You to release a downpour of Divine Favor upon every one of Your children who are challenged by seemingly time-sensitive situations such as sickness and disease, mental disorders, abuse, rejection, oppression, depression, marital relationships, unholy soul-ties, wayward children, loneliness, financial, employment and promotion issues, approvals of student/car/home loans!

Lord Jesus, as Your children await Your Salvation in confident quietnesswe rejoice in exuberant hope, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling, suddenly departing in shameful defeat, recognizing 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!

Abba Father, as we align our spirits, soul and body with Your Eternal Word, we 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 that, You are making Your ways and salvation known among all nations for You Guide and Rule justly! Father, believing that IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus we offer up this prayer! Alleleujah! Amen 3X!

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL EVERYBODY THAT JESUS LOVES  and CARES 4 YOU, YOU & YOU! #FRONTLINEMINISTRY

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake. Deut. 31:6 NIV

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isa. 26:3 KJV

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”
 
#CANWETALK?  Fortunately, the covers have been lifted and the stigma that once keep many suffering in silence and isolated by guilt and shame are not able to seek medical help  that was once shunned by the world, even by the church! Beloved, the struggle is real, BUT GOD’S LOVE IS GREATER!   By The Grace of God, while I too have experienced the freedom of  being delivered from the tormenting trauma and enslavement due to  clinical depression; however I will never everrrr forget to remember How Great A Salvation that The Lord wrought in my life!  I thank God for the medication that kept me long enough for God to get a hold of my mind, Divinely interrupting the forces of darkness, rebuking the lies and shining the Light of The Gospel of Jesus Christ into my spirit thereby transforming my being from death to LIFE!
 
It’s incumbent upon us to remember, this is not heaven, the devil is still a liar and God’s Word is Truth!  #IJS! If the saints are feeling the heat of the devil’s wicked devises, can you imagine what he’s putting the unsaved through? #EXACTLY!!!

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 closetwe 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! HENCE, You ought to tell one somebody that there is a Hope that’s out of this world…I mean, really?
 
C’mon nah! JUS TELL ‘EM…His Name is JESUS and He’s ALWAYS JUS A PRAYER AWAY!

SELAH!

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAAZING!
We are excited and grateful that you’ve joined us once again in our Thursdays’ Corporate Fasting and Prayer! We’re eternally thankful to our Father, God for give us one more day to embrace and enjoy the Wonders of His Glory! We rejoice in The Hope that His Eyes are watching and His Ears are attentive to hear and intervene on our behalf as we enter into His Courts with praise and thanksgiving for You Alone are The Source of all everything that we will ever need in this life and the life to come!

What a friend we have in Jesus all our sins and grieves to bear! What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer. Oh what peace we often forfeit of what needless pain we bear; All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer…

O Come let us kneel before our Maker, as we acknowledge that we’re bowing before A GREAT GOD, The GOD above all gods; The King of kings and Lord of lords! We cry out, Abba Fathers, we come to The Ancient of Days, The Creator and Sustainer of every living creature…

Abba Father, we bless You for this new day, filled with Mercy and Grace to preserve us through any and every challenge that You allow to befall us today. We Thank You for Your inseparable Lovingkindness that continues to look beyond the iniquities of our frail, faulty, the fickleness of our fleshy frame and to forgive us for every sin that we do, speak or think that violates Your Holy Kingdom Commandments! As we confess our sins before You, we thank You now for this undeserved favor that we have inherited through The Sacrificial Atoning Blood of Your First-Begotten Son, In The Majestic Name of Jesus! Amen 3x!!!

Heavenly Father, we come, humbled by Your Everlasting Love, yet boldly in agreement with Kingdom Authority, recognizing that we’re living in the last of the last days and that while the enemy of our souls has launched a full-fledged attack against The Body of Christ and The Name of Jesus we know that You have sworn by God-Self to never leave nor forsake us!

Therefore, Father, we thank You for the antidote that allows all those who love You and Your Ways, having no other mind, to stand steadfast, immovable always abounding in Your Will and Your Word! We thank You for the honor and privilege afforded us as You teach us to war against the Satanic hosts, to come before You, earnestly seeking Your Presence and finding help and hope to overcome every weapon that’s formed against us! For You O Lord are The Rock of our Salvation, and there’s nothing too hard for OUR GOD! 

Sweet Holy Spirit, we come warring in the Spirit of Worship, thanking You for leading and guiding us, for You are our Great High Priest, and even when we don’t know what or how to pray, You intervene on our behalf, interpreting every moan and the groanings of our hearts today and presenting it to our Father!

Precious Lord, You , our Omniscient God, know everything about us! You know the battles that we’re facing, not just in our physical bodies but even in our minds! We ask that You rebuke the spirits of overwhelming fear, confusion, frustration, intimidation and condemnation that are enticing Your people to draw-back from the purpose, plan and things of God! We release The Blessing of God into the lives of Your people who are fainting even perishing for lack of vision. We speak deliverance from every opposing spirit and we declare victory as we put the enemy under our feet and stand in our rightful place as Children of Light, in Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

We rebuke every spirit that keeps your people shackled and cowardly silenced by the cares of this world. We pray against spirits of distractions, ungodly soul-ties, discords, divisions, illicit relationships, adulterous relationships and we resist the enemy’s power to hold Your people incarcerated in failure and defeat! Therefore we declare and decree that chains are being broken now as You are opening the door of escape in the Spirit, in Jesus Name! IT IS SO!

Abba Father, forgive us for failing in your Great Commission as we’ve become lackadaisical in our obligation, responsibility and yes, even our desire to plead for souls! Help Your church to remember that Jesus died for souls! Father we pray for the lost who have yet to receive Your Grace-filled Salvation! We ask that You quicken their hearts with a Spirit of Godly-Repentance allowing them to cry out to You for Salvation today! We pray for the backsliders who have for whatever reason, turned away from The Only Savior and left the Ark of Your Grace! Father, put a fresh “COMMITED YES” in their hearts and minds today, lead them back to the Altar and restore them back to Righteousness in Christ Jesus!

Father, please forgive us for succumbing to the culture of this world and allowing it to infiltrate the Church causing us to lust and store up the treasures of this world, the money, cars, houses, land, designer clothes, shoes, the latest electronic devices, hence, longing for the power, prestige and praises and approval of men, rather than focusing on establishing Your Kingdom in the earth!

Father, as our Good Shepherd, You instructed us to “Seek Ye First The Kingdom of God and all these other things would be added to us” We know that it brings pleasure to Your Heart that Your children prosper and be in good health, especially our souls! You promised that if we would faithfully walk upright before You, no good thing would be withheld from us!

Holy Father, we thank You for being Jehovah Rophe, The Lord our Healer therefore, as we lift up all who are being afflicted by physical diseases, spiritual and mental dis-eases! According to Your delegated Power and Authority, to declare and decree a thing according to Your Word and it has to come to past, in The Name of Jesus, we therefore rebuke, quarantine, bind and cast-out pancreatic, throat, breast, lung, liver, kidney, blood , brain, colon, bladder, uterus, rectal, stomach cancer, and confine it under The Blood of JESUS NOW! We RELEASE healing, wholeness, deliverance, quick and immediate recovery in The Holy Ghost, to hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation and dialysis centers, operating rooms, chemotherapy and psychiatric wards and prisons!

We’re believing that even as You walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re still Well Able to do the same right now! Lord Jesus, Your Word declares that by Your stripes we have been redeemed and healed 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!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we thank You for moving in our situations, doctor reports, court cases, employment issues and turning them around! We come against unsettled minds and according to Your Word, as we bring them to You in prayer and supplications with Thanksgiving, making everything known to You, we have the courageous confidence that everything that the enemy meant for evil, You are making it turn around for our highest good and Your Greatest Glory even before we see it manifested! We Shout HALLELUJAH!!!

Precious Jesus, hear us as we’re praying for our families, our secular and religious leaders. We intercede on behalf of all those who have submitted their lives, determined to Let the Kingdom of Heaven reign in and thru their lives and their ministries! We pray that they will speak Truth to edify and not words of deception in order to manipulate your people! We send the Word of God to their spirits now, anointing them and breaking every fetter that would captivate or hinder them. We speak a Spirit of Freedom, in The Holy Ghost, to those who are discouraged, discontent, fainthearted by worry and wearied in well-doing! We speak deliverance to every wounded spirit, troubled tormented minds, those that would entertain demonic enduced thoughts of suicide and murder, that desire to overtake our young people! My brother, my sista be Ye lifted up! Every hung-down head we Ye lifted up and receive an inner revelation of who and Whose they are in Christ Jesus!

Abba Father, we lift our children and our young people as they prepare to return to day-care facilities, elementary, middle/high schools, college campuses and we declare over them, as the carriers of our Magnificence and Glory, that they are saved, sanctified, walking free of fear and anxiety for their lives and personal safety. We rebuke the bullying spirits! We pray that our children will be equipped with keen discernment and will be able to recognize what it of You and what is of Satan! We thank You for the gifts of the Spirit that You have deposited within them, and that they shall be encouraged and utilized as You make room for them! Father, we pray that You keep their hearts and minds in perfect peace, let them be filled with hope for a awesome future that You have purposed for their lives while they were hidden in their Mothers’ wombs!

Sweet Holy Spirit, as we commit them into Your Providential care, realizing that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too., we have the Blessed Assurance that their steps are being ordered by Your eyes! Therefore 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!We cover them in The Blood-Stained Banner of Your Love even as we speak Salvation, Deliverance and Prosperity over their lives!We command the Blessings of God to follow them!
We pray for the grieving parents who lost their children to senseless violence! We ask that You comfort their hearts and minds, rebuke guilt, shame, doubt and regret for decisions that we might’ve made in their past concerning their children! We ask that You send a Spirit of Confident Assurance that as You graciously allow each of us to grow from Faith to Faith and Grace to Grace, our knowledge of You is enlarged enabling us to be transformed by the renewing our minds, proving what is that good, acceptable and perfect Will of God for our lives! And for this cause we Thank You Lord Jesus!

We pray for the leaders of this nation and the world. Lord, we ask that You touch those who don’t know You, fear nor regard You as Lord! Break up the fallow ground, prick their stony arrogant hearts with a spirit of humility that allows them to hear Your Voice even as You speak to them in dreams and visions! Cast down the spirit of high-mindedness, self-righteousness, carnality and pride! Let them come running to You, repenting and asking forgiveness, and seeking You for personal Salvation!

Father, as always, we recognize that there’s so much more that we should ask, but we are trusting that Holy Spirit is yet stirring up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name to pray without ceasing! We ask that You release upon our hearts, an ever-burning desire for an even greater personal, intimate relationship through fellowship with Holy Spirit, that we might prove what is the perfect and acceptable Will of The Lord Jesus!

Lord Jesus, Your children, the apple of Your Eye, await Your Salvation, in patient confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling, suddenly departing in shameful defeat, recognizing 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, therefore we’re trusting that we shall inherit the Promises of GOD!
Abba Father, because You have Sovereignly chosen and drawn us near that we might dwell safety and secure in Your House eternally, we rejoice in thanksgiving, as we align our spirits, soul and body with You Eternal Word! We bow in obedient reverence before The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us that, You are making Your Ways and Salvation known among all nations!

We delight ourselves in You, The Eternal Father, Who Guides and Rules Justly, believing that at Your Appointed Time…IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus we offer up this prayer, Sealed in The Holy Ghost with a HOLY Alleleujah! Amen 3X!
SELAH!
