GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? OOOHHH GLORRRAAA!

 

Once again, we’re so happy that you’ve joined us in our weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We count it an awesome honor and privilege that The Creator of Heaven and Earth would allow mere humanity to communicate our desires, inquiries and supplications, fully expecting that He’s listening compassionately and intentionally to perfect our concerns, console our fears and dispel our doubts according to The Transforming Power of His Presence that is at work within us! Let’s do this…

I’m only human! I’m just a woman; Lord help me believe in all I can be and all that I am! Show me the stairway, that I have to climb! And Lord for my sake, teach to take one day at a time!. One day at a time, Sweet Jesus! That’s all I’m asking of You! Lord, give me the strength to do everything that I have to do! Yesterday’s gone, Sweet Jesus and tomorrow ma never be mine! Lord for my sake, help me to live one day at a time! Shall we pray?

 

Abba Father, we’re so grateful that You have given us one more day to enjoy Your Life-giving, Life-sustaining Mercy and Grace! We bless You for allowing us to boldly enter into Your Throne Room, confident that You will entreat us graciously as we pour out the burdens that seem to overwhelm our hearts, releasing everything that concerns us. Lord Jesus, we know that You are Omnipresent and Omniscient, see and already know everything about everyone of us, yet You have invited us to come to You for comfort, strength and encourage us to hold on to every Word that You have spoken over our lives, even before we were born!

From hearts open, depending and relying only on You, we offer up sweet precious praise to You today, thanking You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to sacrifice His Life, opening our spiritual eyes to see Your Glory in His Face, causing us to seek and receive Him as our personal Savior and Lord, giving us the opportunity to live for, through and with You in this present world and the world to come! We thankya for Your Compassionate Faithful Love that extends to us such undeserved Favor to live, move and have our being! We bless You for one more opportunity to embrace richness of Your Loving, Kindness and enjoy the unsearchable depth of Your Peace as we boldly enter into Your Throne Room, confident that You will entreat us graciously as we pour out the burdens that seem to overwhelm our hearts, releasing everything that concerns us.

Lord Jesus, we know that You are Omnipresent and Omniscient, see and already know everything about everyone of us, yet You have invited us to come to You, for comfort and strength as You encourage us to hold on to every Word that You have spoken over our lives, even before we were born! From heart open, depending and relying only on You, we offer up sweet precious praise to You today, for renewed strength,understanding and power as we reverence You as our personal Savior and Lord.

 

Heavenly Father, with unspeakable joy, we Thank You for being our Salvation, Shield, Strength, Deliverance, Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding! With heartfelt humility and sincere gratitude, we acknowledge The Favor, Compassion and Faithfulness that continuously flows into our lives from You, knowing our frame, yet looks beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to satisfy all of our need!

Abba Father, we bow reverently before You, humbly assured that if we would but confess our sins, You, Heavenly Father, being Faithful and Just will forgive us, and wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, cleanse us from all unrighteousness, and restore every breach that our rebellious disobedience has caused between our poor souls and our Savior, Lord Jesus, we now ask You to forgive us for everything that we have spoken, done and thought that was not pleasing in Your sight!

Daddy, because You are no respecter of person and no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we pray that You draw and save the lost! Quicken The Spirit of Godly-repentance in their hearts and minds that they will come surrendering to You today, confessing a “SINCERE YES LORD” to Your Grace Gift, believing and receiving You as their personal Savior and Lord and asking You to baptize and fill them with Holy Spirit, empowering them to live the rest of their lives exemplifying Your Wondrous Works to a lost, dark unregenerated world!

Father, we pray on behalf of anyone who has turned their back on You, walking in their own will, today we ask that You plant a “COMMITTED YES LORD” into their hearts and minds, free them to repent of their sin and come running back to You! We declare and decree that today every back-slider’s footsteps are being directed By Your Mercy and that You are planting and settling them into the church home that You’ve prepared and designated for their individual deliverance, growth and development!

 

Heavenly Father, because You desire that Your children prosper and be in good health, even as our soul prospers, we ask that You touch our brother, touch our sister whose bodies have been afflicted by all manner of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual sickness and diseases! We plead The Blood of Jesus against the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, heart conditions, high/low blood pressures, depression, dementia, autism, any demonic-induced temptations, perversions, ungodly soul ties, doubts, addictions, learning disabilities, low self esteem, anxiety, fears and failures. We intercede on behalf of all those undergoing chemo, radiation, dialysis treatments, surgical procedures, those in recovery rooms, those who’re on life-support systems, not knowing that they’re even in this world, declaring and decreeing that even as we’re praying, You’re walking through every ward, touching,miraculously healing and delivering, rebuking fatigue, mistakes, mishaps, misdiagnosis and premature death. We pray for consoling strength for all who are grieving the lost of loved ones and strengthening caregivers!

 

By the Power and Authority invested in us, we rebuke every Satanic oppressing spirit and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake, Amen 3x! Lord, according to Your Word, You were wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities and by Your stripes we have been redeemed and healed! Therefore, we’re yet standing firmly on Your promise that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name!

 

Precious Jesus, we lift up every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, we ask that You restore confident hope that even if those who have been elected to lead this nation seem to have forgotten that their power has been designated from The Supreme Source of ALL Power, You are yet Jehovah Jareh Who supplies all of their need according to Your Riches in Glory!

 

As instructed, we pray for our enemies, those who despitefully use us and bless those who are bitter and speak evil of us, that our faithfulness may be a sign that we belong to You!! As Children of The Light, we pronounce blessings, joy, peace, favor upon all who trust You, as You prepare a table before our enemies and empower us to rebuke venomous, hateful, words of racism; because all flesh is of one BLOOD! We speak LIFE, believing that You will cover our babies in daycare, our children in schools, our families, on their jobs and as they go and come in!

Lord Jesus, we pray for those who’s faith is fainting, strength wavering, struggling while waiting for Your Hand to intervene on our behalf, send confirmation that Your Promises are Yeah and Amen! Thank You for assuring them that the pain that we’re experiencing is in fact transitioning us into new levels of Your anointing, opportunities, relationships and 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 Thank You for the great things You have prepared for Your people!

Father, as we lift up our children, our grand and great-grand children, by faith, we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives, canceling every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we realize that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too and we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by Your eyes! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies, releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Abba Father, 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. We pray for the church to be The Church that You’ve called to be influencers in the midst of the lost and ungodly world.

Precious Lord, we praise You as The Way Maker, Miracle Worker, Promise Keeper and our Light in The Darkness! We delight in Your Divine Power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection, confident that You will preserve us thru every tests that You allow, keeping us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE, resting assured that You’ve already designated the time of deliverance and will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised in Your Word because we have trusted in You!

Sweet Holy Spirit, open up our minds and our hearts, grace Your children with hope-filled trust that You, Father have committed Your Word towards us that no weapon that’s formed us shall ever prosper and no trouble, test or trial can come near us except You allow it! Help us to remember that we belong to You, are never too far that You can’t see us or can’t reach us and You’re forever shielding us from anything that Satan forms against us. Help us to understand that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower, and the righteous who run into it and are saved!

Heavenly Father, You Alone have the Power to turn everything around to work in our favor and bring about exuberant testimonies and praises of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory! Therefore, we decree that every Satanic-induced spirit of fear and death is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power, Sound-mindness and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

Father, we rest in confident-quietness, rejoice in hope, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shame and defeat knowing that You have heard the voice of our weeping hearts, our supplications and have received every word of our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Heavenly Father, we thank You now, believing that because Your ears are attentive to our prayers, according to Your Perfect Will and timing IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen and It Is So!

Now, we encourage every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL ONE SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES AND CAN SAVE ANYBODY!#FRONTLINEMINISTRY #CARE2SHARE

CAN I GET A WITNESS?

can i get a witness

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

For these causes the Jews caught me in the temple, and went about to kill me. Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come: Acts 12:21-22

 

As today’s scripture text recounts, The Apostle Paul was called before King Agrippa to testify. Paul, a self-professed prisoner of the Lord Jesus Christ, was absolutely convinced that nobody BUT JESUS was responsible for him being in this predicament, yet not for the reasons they’d presumed but to be a witness for His Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

WHO KNU? When you make a decision to take up your cross and follow Jesus, understand that it means you’re opening up your life to persecution! Strangely enough, for the simple reason that everybody ain’t glad that you got saved!  In fact, there just might be some folk who want to see you not just fail but grave yard dead! 

Of course, we already know that the devil won’t like you…but we don’t like him either, RIGHT? The reason that he don’t like a true witness of Jesus Christ is because they’re gonna tell you the Truth. Regardless of how many false prophets he’s leased upon some unsuspecting soul, there are some true servants who’re not motivated by the insatiable lure of the almighty dollar, greed nor fame but solely by a personal conviction that Jesus is soon to come and they don’t want to see anybody’s soul end up in hell.! #SERIOUSLY!!!

Just take a good look around,  the signs are everywhere, we’re living in the last of the last days! However, God is raising up a generation of ‘last-day preachers’ who’re not prophesying “GET READY! GET READY! GET READY! Your Boaz, your Esther is on the way, yo money is coming, you gonna start a business, write a best-seller book”—but these end-time prophetic Voices, operating under the same anointing as Elijah and John The Baptist, they’re crying out “Turn away from your pattern of waywardness and be saved”!

God is raising up a remnant of men and women who refuse to bow down for the kings riches; but stand for righteousness and do the right thing  because it this right thing! When you do the right thing, God will take you through any and everything! No, every day’s not going be a howdy-howdy-hallelujah day, but I promise you this, whatever God brings you to, He’s well able to take you all the way through to the other side and TRUST2KNO, there will be Glory after this!

The ol’ saints used to sang, “I know the Bible’s right, somebody’s wrong!”  And guess what? While there’s no denying that  it’s a new day, IT’S STILL THE TRUTH! The 21st Century has brough about unimaginable technological advancements and even socio-economic reforms, and YYYESSSS, we’ve come a long way! HOWEVRRRR,  we’re living in the midst of gross darkness. Children are killing their parents, parents are killing their children. It’s dark outside; lesbian and homosexuals are marrying, the government is enacting legislation that forbids the parents to raise their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord! In other words, everything that God said would happen, is happening right before our eyes! DON’T SHOUT ME DOWN, nah!

Men are turning their backs on God; rejecting the Truth of The Word, in favor of fake news, in and out of the church! The Scriptures warn us, when we see these things happening, we have to make a decision to save yourself from this untoward generation! (Ref. Acts 2:40)

I don’t know about you, but I have decided that by The Grace of God, even if everything and everybody goes down, I’m sticking with THE ETERNAL WORD, bcause I mean to make the rapture! What about you? What will it take for you to make  up your mind?

Precious ones, may I submit for your careful consideration, while it’s yet today, harden not your heart; tomorrow is not promised to any of us! Why live beneath your privilege afforded to us, in the CHRIST, WHEN The Price has already been paid and The WAY has already been made? 

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” Deuteronomy 30:19

DIDJAHEARDAT? WHY WAIT? MAKE YOUR DECISION NOW! #IJS!!! IT COULD BE HELL 2 PAY! CAN I GET A WITNESS?

SELAH!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Father, we’re asking You to touch our brother, touch our sister whose bodies has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, high/low blood pressure, heart disease, kidney, lung failure, satanically induced depression/oppression/addictions and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake! Lord, YOUR infallable WORD has decreed that the stripes that Jesus bore on His back has already redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on Your Eternal Authority as Creator and Ruler of the Agesthat the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name!

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

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

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

We lift up every spiritual leader, asking a special miracle for each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit. Father, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace them to be the examples in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love, trust wholly in and live their lives serving You!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SELAH!

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

For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Malachi 3:6

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Beloved, standing firmly on the Immutability of God’s Word, gives us the leverage to embrace every situation with confident assurance that we’re never alone and God is always in control. Relax!Remember this ain’t your first rodeo, right? A quick glance over your shoulders will remind us that our Heavenly Father has always been our very Present Help, constantly undergirding our inabilities with His Infinite Excellence!

History declares that we’re surrounded by clouds of witnesses who’ve gone before us, therefore, we imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises! (Hebrews 6:12) 

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

Remember, My child, when it seems as if the odds are stacked against the righteous—GOD’S AT HIS BEST! FAITHFUL…IF HE DID IT B4, HE WILL DO IT…AGAIN!  #seriously

SUPER VISION!

SUPER VISION

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

The LORD said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering.

So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey–the home of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. Exodus 3:7-8

 

Has God’s Promises ever seemed too good to be true? C’mon nah, I’m talking to some REAL-FOLK! Seriously! The reason being, our interaction with the physical world is naturally limited to the realm of our five senses! What we see, touch, feel, taste and smell is how we perceive the reality of the world around us! Unfortunately, there’s always much more going on than the natural man can conceive! For example, you can feel the breeze but what does the wind look like? Technicians can take a picture of a brain, but who can know the mind, BUT GOD! The stethoscope can hear the heartbeat, but can’t determine when you’re broken, hard-or faint-hearted! #ijs!!

Have you ever felt discarded or deserted, even by GOD? Well, let me assure you, you’re not alone! According to the historical events relayed in our scripture text, The Hebrews, God’s Chosen, who finding themselves smack-dab-n-da-middle of circumstantial evidence that most likely caused them to experience these very same emotions! For 450 years they lived enslaved to their Egyptian captors who took great pleasure in inflicting intolerable pain and suffering, intentionally rationing food and water only when they deemed necessary to keep them totally dependent upon their Hard Task Master’s will! Can you imagine the shame and hopelessness they, God’s Elect, having to endure the consequences of their rebellion and ensuing result of God’s Justice, with no end in sight? Howevrrr, even when they couldn’t detect His Presence, GOD’s LOVE abides Faithful!

 

Having lured His Servant, Moses to the backside of Mt. Horeb and startling him with a strange phenomenon, the Bush that refused to be consumed, God commissioned him to go tell “MY” people that ENUFF IS ENUFF!  (That’s contemporized AEC Version) “I’ve seen their oppression, I’ve heard their cry,  bottled every tear,  heard every prayer and NOW I AM COME to shut Pharaoh down and DELIVER you out of the hand of your enemy!” Not knowing whether or not his Israelite brothers would even listen to him, being a escaped felon hiding out in a foreign land, but Moses heeded God’s Word and shared it with his fellow-captives. Much to Moses’ amazement, the people grabbed hold to The Promise with all of their hearts and began shouting and dancing in the streets, celebrating the GOOD NEWS, believing that THE WORDS THAT MOSES SPAKE CAME STRAIGHT FROM GOD’S MOUTH!

Eventually, the message got to Pharaoh’s Palace, nevertheless, he took it as a grain of salt. After all, this was not the first time that these ignorant slaves had started these silly rumors in an effort to keep HOPE ALIVE! Pharaoh was convinced that it’s JUS FAKE NEWS! But for those who had endured 450 years of GOD’s SILENCE IN THE MIDST OF GROSS DARKNESS, IT WAS LIFE AND LIGHT!

 

The Bible says, “My Sheep know MY VOICE AND I KNOW THEM, AND THEY FOLLOW ME”! (Ref. John 10:27) “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17) When you begin to look beyond what your natural eyes can see and your vision is filtered through the lens of FAITH, YOU COME2KNO THAT IT AIN’T ALWAYS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE! While the world’s systems operates on the principle “I’ll BELIEVE IT WHEN I SEE IT”, GOD’s Kingdom operates by a higher standard, “I WILL BELIEVE TO SEE THE GOODNESS OF THE LORD IN THE LAND OF THE LIVING!” (Ref. Psalm 27:13)

When you place your personal trust in The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and The God of Jacob, faith opens you up to experience SUPER VISION, exposing things that are not seen as though they already exist! God’s Word is filled with exceeding great and Precious Promises that are greater than anything that the oppressor threatens! Oh, remember what happened to that arrogant obstinate Pharaoh and His Army? Right, THEY ALL DROWNED IN THE RED SEA! (Ref. Exodus 14:28-29) #ijs!!

 

BELOVED, WHEN WE TRUST GOD WITH ALL OF OUR HEART, MIND, SOUL AND SPIRIT, we discover POWER that’s out of this world that erupts A HOPE-FILLED PRAISE, an ABSOLUTE ASSURANCE THAT ‘I AM, WILL CERTAINLY BE WITH U’, and A CONFIDENT HOLY BOLDNESS THAT PUTS THE DEVIL ON NOTICE OF HIS IMMINENT DEMISE!

TRUST2KNO, NOT MATTER WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE, IF GOD SAID IT, IT’S GOTTA HAPPEN! Didjaseedat? YEAH, SUPER VISION!

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!

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!
