ENUFF IS ENUFF!

ENUFF IS ENUFF 2

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Abba Father, we come before You, humbled by Your Loving-Kindness today, In the Magnificent, All Powerful Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus! While many of us are struggling with the real-time cares of this dark, lost and ungodly world, our spirit man is yet rejoicing, praising and thanking You for blessing us to see THIS brand new day. For we recognize that it was not because of any goodness of our own that we live, move and have our being! We quickly thank You, Father for another opportunity to embrace and enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace that comes from hearts wholly leaning and trusting solely upon Your All Sustaining Sufficiency!

Heavenly Father, it is with unspeakable joy that we offer up praises unto You for being The ONLY True, Living Eternal God of our Salvation, our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision.With heartfelt humility and sincere gratitude, we acknowledge that Grace, Compassion and Faithfulness that allows You, knowing our frame, YET You look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities and minister so graciously to every need pertaining to life and godliness!

Abba Father, hear our prayers reverberating from hearts open, depending and relying SOLELY upon You as we offer up precious praise to You, for that Glorious Day when You interrupted our lives, opening up the eyes of our understanding and filling our spirits with the Revelation of Your Son Jesus, allowing us to receive Him as our personal Savior and Lord!

Heavenly Father, we gratefully acknowledge that because no man can come to the You except You draw them, we pray, Daddy, that as Your eyes continue to search the hearts of humanity, that You draw and save the lost, quickening The Spirit of Godly-repentance in every heart and mind that  will beckon them to come today confessing ‘a sincere YES’ to Your Grace Gift, thereby receiving 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  where they are nurtured and encouraged to live holy, acceptable and committed to faithful obedience to Your Word! In Jesus Name Amen 3x!

Lord Jesus, we’re eternally grateful for the indwelling Presence of Holy Spirit assuring us that YOU ARE THE SOVEREIGN LORD, therefore always in absolute control of all things. In light of the continuous influx of profound arrogance and illegal injustices being perpetrated again Your people from ‘the Satanic influenced powers that be’, the atrocious senseless murders taking place all around us, in the midst of sadden hearts and wearied spirits we shall never fail to express our gratitude because You have promised to yet keep us hidden under The BLOOD just as You provided Light and Provision for Your people in Goshen! We praise You, Heavenly Father, that even in these days of imminent terror, tragedy, chaos and destruction, we know that the safest place in this whole world is in YOUR perfect Will! Therefore, we trust that no weapon that is formed against us shall prosper and every tongue that rises up again your children shall be condemned!

Wc speak Your Consoling Peace that surpasses all understanding cover our mindsDiscipline our thoughts that we may walk circumspectly as disciples of Christ. We put our flesh under subjection to Holy Spirit, and we resist the hand of the enemy of our lives. We will not misuse or abuse our time so we have time to seek You, ask and hear direction from You! Settle our anxious spirits and grace us to bring everything to You fully persuaded that You are well able and willing to save us! We rebuke every addictive spirit come to intice us off course.

As You have commanded, we pray and thank You for all the leaders over this nation and world. Send direction to them, as they make decisions that affect our lives and our households and our children in the classrooms! Touch their minds and hearts, visit them in the night, speak to them in dreams and visions and let them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens is keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!

As we wait for You to move on our behalf, help us not to become lethargic and disenfranchised, refusing to do those things we’re called to do in our communities to honor the privileges that so many others before us struggled, fought even died so that we would have the right to vote and that our children would be able to live a better life than they did! Help us to be accountable in our communities, Churches, on our jobs, in our homes. Help those who carry Your word to walk upright standing for right in this contrary world!

Help us to stand in the Liberty, with our faith firmly rooted in The Sacrificial Atoning Blood of Jesus that has set us free, to live a quality of life that is exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond this natural realm! We declare and decree that as children of The Most High God, we are seated in Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus! Therefore the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but Mighty Through GOD, pulling down strongholds, casting down imaginations and everything that exalts itself against The KNOWLEDGE OF GOD! WE PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS OVER OUR MINDS, BODIES, SOULS AND SPIRIT!

Precious Father, we ask You to forgive us of every sin we have committed or omitted willfully and unwillfully in thought, word or deed! In Jesus Name! Where justice should prevail, Lord we plead for Mercy! Thankya for changing our story and those of our loved ones, who’ve not yet come to the knowledge of Your Saving Grace! We put them under arrest by the Power of Holy Spirit and we call their lives to come into proper alignment with Your Divine Word and Will!

Sweet Jesus, we call every backslider to bow to Your Lovingkindness and return to the fold immediately, with renewed commitment and genuine desire to adhere to the Kingdom Constitution as revealed through diligent study of Your Word with an ernest desire to build their personal  relationship with You through fellowship in a consistent prayer life!

Father, we’re believing that You are equipping us to walk filled with the Power of God, knowing that You have called the end from the beginning, we rebuke fear and intimidation, every kind of addictions assigned to hinder us from fulfilling the good plans You have for us! Break-free those who are being held in mind-paralyzing, mouth-muting captivity to speak the WORD with Holy boldness and Authority!

We declare and decree that as You touch them, You are lifting them up out of the pits of fear, anxiety, hopelessness, discouragement, oppression, depression, sexual abuse, spousal abuse, spiritual abuse, physical abuse, low self esteem, self-rejection, self-hatred and empowering them to walk into large places that You have divinely ordained from their Mother’s womb! We speak LIFE to those walking thru the valley overshadowed with death, Woman, Man, The Lord God heal, deliver, strengthen, empower and sustain YOU even NOW, IN JESUS NAME!

According to the WORD OF YOUR POWERwe speak against the all manner of sickness and disease, the spirit of cancer, brain, lung, throat, kidney, liver, pancreas, blood, breast, bone, prostrate those in chemo therapy, radiation therapy, on dialysis, those awaiting transplants, those enduring what man calls incurable disease such has HIV, Parkinson disease, ALS, autism! We speak wondrous reversal of any damage caused by strokes, kidney failure, heart disease, arthritis, glaucoma and every other eye disease! Father GOD, release a Divine Revelation of our healing that You purchased on Calvary and give us instructions on how we can loose total healing in every area of our being!

We pray for the caretakers assisting love ones and lift up those who are lingering on to life in hospice facilities aking for sweet transition! We pray strength for the weary. Lift up every bowed down head, strengthen hearts with Your unshakable Peace! Give us to Hope again! Help us to remember Your Faithfulness and Mercy in times past, recognizing that You O God are the same yesterday, today and forever more! Encourage us with Confidence that You hear our cry, even as You heard the voice of Your children in Egypt!

Father, we pray for the release of unexpected Favor of God; new jobs, promotions, opening new doors of opportunities for entrepreneurs, debt cancellations, loan approvals, unexpected financial blessings! YOU are OUR Jehovah Jareh, who shall supply all of OUR need according to Your Riches in Glory! We declare and decree that You are releasing a Double Portion of Your Anointing, Spirit of Love, Power, Sound-mindness and Purpose into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

Lord Jesus, we await Your Salvation, in 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 of Grace and Mercy!

Abba Father,  in closing, we align our spirits, soul and body with Your Eternal Word, shouting with unspeakable-joy unto The One to Whom all men will come! Bowing reverently obedient 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, Guiding and Ruling Justly! Father, believing that IT IS DONE, In The Exalted Name of Jesus we seak this prayer with Holy Alleleujah! Amen 3X!

JOY???

Jumping woman at sunset

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.  John 15:11 4 

Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!  Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.  Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.  Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.  And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.  Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.

Philippians 4:4-9

 

If the only evidence that the Prosecution had to convict us of being Christian was our countenance or our dispositions,  how many of our cases would be thrown out and we’d get off scott-free!? A lot of folk are claiming salvation, naming the Name of Jesus and on their way to heaven anyhow, but most of them don’t seem to be enjoying the trip. If so, they forget to send an IM from their heart to their face!  #ijs

If anybody should have joy, it’s the saints of the Most High God. But if the Saints are walking around with our heads hung down, broke, busted and disgusted with everything and everybody, then how can we persuade a lost world that life goes better with Christ? Don’t shout me down , now!

Perhaps, some of us have become wearied on the journey of life because we’ve mistakenly equated joy with happiness. While happiness is an emotional response based merely on enjoyable circumstances, joy is a constant internal state embedded in the Love of God, producing serenity and tranquility totally independent of external conditions.

Jesus looking from eternity past and seeing the many souls that would be saved, overwhelmed with Joy made a conscious commitment to endure the pain, despise the shame, become obedient, even to death on the Cross of Calvary that HIS JOY, might be poured out upon His people. (Ref. Hebrew 12:20) Guess what, that makes YOU the joy of Jesus!

There’s more to Joy than goose-bumps. Nehemiah 8:10 says, “The joy of the Lord is our strength”.

Jesus Joy is a weapon of mass destruction in the believer’s arsenal. Hence, Jesus Joy is empowerment to overcome any challenge with courage and confidence!

Just knowing that every promise in The Bible is ours to claim with the assurance that Jesus will never ever leave nor forsake us should make every Born-again, Blood-washed child of God’s heart swell up to the overflow with pure Jesus Joy that makes you wanna  HOLLA and THROW UP BOTH OF MY HANDS AND RUN AROUND THE ROOM!

Didjaheardat? JESUS OVER YOU! WOW,  NOW DATZ POWERFUL!

DIVINE JUSTICE IS NOT PARTISAN!

divine justice is not partisan

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

This is what the Lord says: “For three sins of Judah, even for four, I will not relent. Because they have rejected the law of the Lord and have not kept his decrees, because they have been led astray by false gods, the gods their ancestors followed, 5 I will send fire on Judah that will consume the fortresses of Jerusalem.”

6 This is what the Lord says: “For three sins of Israel, even for four, I will not relent. They sell the innocent for silver, and the needy for a pair of sandals. They trample on the heads of the poor as on the dust of the ground and deny justice to the oppressed. Father and son use the same girl and so profane my holy name. They lie down by every altar on clothes taken in pledge, And drink the wine of their god. Amos 2:4-8

 

While we rarely care to be reminded, much less own it, History has revealed numerous innate flaws in humanity! Yet, The Creator of Heaven and Earth is not in the least bit hesitant to point our these fickled- fallacious tendencies in an effort to divert us from being repetitively susceptible to and victimized by them as were our forefathers!

As our text unfolds, we see Amos, a little known Sheepherder, is commissioned by God, to leave his home in Judah and travel north to  warn the people of Samaria and the Kingdom of Israel!  Having provoked God’s anger and exhausted His patience and forebearance, Judah and Israel would now suffer the thrust of  God’s impending judgment because of their perpetual rebellion and blatant disregard for His Righteous Commands!

A closer investigation of the text bear witness that after decades of devastating struggles the nations of Judah and Israel were now basking in a time of great prosperity and military success! Having successfully eliminated their traditional enemies, they enjoyed tremendous wealth and infamy. In other words, they were living their ‘best life ever’! Unfortunately, that’s when we’re most vulnerable to forgetting the Gifter and magnifying the giftings!

Much like today, the leaders of these nations, assuming that they were somehow entitled to these exuberant graces, were immune to the sufferings of the least amongst them and took advantage of every opportunity to keep the poor enslaved by poverty, inequality, worthlessness and hopelessness!

Little did they realize that God despises human pride, particularly when it’s rooted in self-righteousness and barnacled in indifference to the welfare of others whom God has Divinely-Positioned them to steward over! WOW! Many a person, blinded by unjustified confidence in personal status, has seen their worldly wisdom reduced to mere foolishness, huh?

This is specifically true for religious leaders who believe that God is impressed with packed-out ‘FAKE’ Worship services that tend to promote ritualistic celebrations but do nothing to produce Repentance nor Godliness in individuals, our communities, culture or society! DON’T SHOUT ME DOWN NAH! #ijs!!!

Beloved, TRUST2KNO, GOD IS IMPARTIAL WHEN IT COMES TO APPROPRIATING JUSTICE! Your last name, birth right, inheritance, bank account balance, educational degrees, zip code, civic, corporate, or political affiliations do not exempt us from the righteous punishment for insidious immoral crimes we commit against our fellow humanity! While man’s justice may remain blinded by race, ethnicity, class, false assumptions of pre-disposed genetic advantages/disadvantages, GOD’S HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT IS NOT! NO MAN IS ABOVE HIS LAWS!

HE WHO SITS HIGH ABOVE THE CIRCLE OF THE EARTH IS NO RESPECT OF PERSON WHEN IT COMES TO DISPURSING DIVINE LEGAL OPINIONS THAT CAN NOT BE OVER-RULED! We must all remember that The Kingdom of God is not a democracy, but it is, was and shall forever remain a SOVEREIGN ETERNAL THEOCRACY!

ZION, BEWARE! The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. (Proverbs 15:3)
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. (James 4:7)
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the. 1 Peter 4:17

WHATZ REALLY REAL?

whatz really real

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place. Since you were precious in My sight, You have been honored, And I have loved you; Therefore I will give men for you, And people for your life. Fear not, for I am with you. Isaiah 43:2-4

 

Time is hurling towards Eternity at the speed of life! And sometimes, life comes at you hard, fast and furious, huh?.

I mean, it can’t actually be 22 years ago? I blink and I’m sitting at my daughter’s bedside in the L & D Unit, only slightly aware of her antagonistic glares, but not the least bit intimidated nor daunted away from my mission. Time after time, warning her of each impending contraction (as if she really needed to hear me tell her), I cried out, “Get ready, Dawn, here comes another one! 

Was it really that many hours past before the birth of the most beautiful baby girl this side of heaven, Lil’ Miss Dasia? I can still summon up that joy and sheer magic just witnessing this small Wonder of God’s Glory. It can’t be 22 years ago or can it? One moment, she’s sitting on the front steps waiting for Pop-Pop; her first starring role in a kindergarten play; going to the Senior Prom; crossing the stage receiving her High School Diploma; packing up the car; going off to college,  graduation day and now she’s a certified bonafided  teacherWOOOAH! I guess it must be, huh?

We treasure memories like those, right? Nobody expects those unannounced choatic interruptions. I mean; like waking up the morning refreshed, satiated in anticipation of what adventures are waiting to be unfolded during the course of this new day; totally oblivious to the impact of that 11:49 mid-day phone call, that 5:22 rush-hour accident on the Beltway, or that 2:15 a.m. Police knocking at your door, invading your normal routine everyday as usual life in a way you never thought possible!

Suddenly! By the time your head hits the pillow again, every ounce of hope has been ripped out of you, fleeing to a place waaaaay beyond reach. That peace you enjoyed earlier that day somehow has become lost in the maze of extreme anxiety, depression, and hapless desolation. While something inside of you wonders, was that this morning?

Life has a way of slapping you smack-dab-in the middle of your face, no matter how strong you may think you are. There’s no way to be prepared for something like this, saved-sanctified-Holy Ghost filled or not! Yet not one of us is exempt from the threat of drowning in an unexpected out of the blue situation. And of course, The Tempter doesn’t miss any opportunity to exploit our crisis and destroy our faith in what and WHO we do know.

The Israelites faced a similar dilemma in 2 Chronicles 2:12. Surrounded by their enemy with no way out, King Jehoshaphat did the only thing he could do, he cried out to The Lord. “O our God, wilt Thou not judge them? For we have no might against this great company that cometh against us, neither know we what to do; but our eyes are upon Thee.”

Hopefuly, we all can glean from this example. Challenged by those “we don’t know what’s real, why or what to do situations”, focus on what you do knowWe do know WHO!

We know God is yet God! We know God is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient! We know God is Ruler of All Creation! We know God is in complete control! We know He’s always Present with us and that All Power Belongs to God! We know God knows everything about everything! We know His LOVE is unconditionally faithful and irrevocably established forever!

We know that we have a Faithful Father Who’s Solemnly committed Himself to caring, comforting, protecting and restoring our righteousness, peace, our joy and Who is Divinely orchestrating every step and stop safely to our Heavenly home where we shall abide with Him forever!

Don’t get lost in the quarry of the unknown. STICK WITH WHAT YOU KNO, BCUZ AT THE END OF THE DAY, ITZ REALLY IMPORTANT 2 KNOW WHATZ REALLY REAL!

GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT! #WOW!

Welcome to the 1st Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting of this New Year, 2019! When I think of The GOODNESS OF JESUS, AND ALL THAT HE’S BROUGHT US THRU AND KEPT US IN THE MIDST OF, out of the depths of my innermost being, I cry, ‘ BLESS THE LORD, O MY SOULL, THANK GOD 4 SAVING ME!’ Do I have a witness? Let’s begin this year seeking The Face of The Almighty God and Worshiping Him in the Beauty of Holiness! Shall we pray…

“Unto Thee of O Lord, I lift up my soul in Worshipful Adoration! If thou withdraw Thine Self from me, where, O where shall we go! For there is none like Thee. For No other God we know, none else to save us; none else to heal us, none else to deliver us…BESIDES THEE! For You deserve the GLORRAA AND THE HONOR, I LIFT MY HANDS TO THEE…FOR YOU ARE GREAT! AND YOUR MIRACLES ARE GREAT! THERE IS NO ONE ELSE LIKE THEE…THERE IS NO ONE ELSE LIKE THEE…”
Our Father and our God, we come before You again, delighting in Your Presence, rejoicing in Your Lovingkindness and resting in Your Tender Mercy, confident that You have beckoned our hearts to seek You First, The King of kings and Lord of lords, trusting that You are The Source and Sustainer of all that we shall ever need! We bow humbly before Your Throne of Grace with joyful expectation that You Who keepeth Israel, neither sleeps nor slumbers, but watches over us who place our personal trust in You Alone, as the apple of Your Eye! You are our Salvation, our Shield, our Rock of Refuge and our Redeemer; You shall cause Your Face to shine upon us, dispensing favor into every area of our lives to a thousand generations! Therefore, we shall forever lift our hands to You in total praise!

We thank You Lord Jesus for bringing us through 2018 victoriously! For we recognize that Satan was on our track 365 days scheming and plotting to steal, kill and destroy those who have committed our lives to serve You faithfully as witnesses to the lost and demonically infested nations that You are The Living Savior who has defied the lure of sinful fleshy lust, robbed the grave of it’s victory and defeated the sting of death, having satisfied the price and penalty of our sin through Your Sacrificial Atoning Blood, Death, Burial and Resurrection, has opened up The Way of Truth and Eternal Life to all who will accept Your Saving Grace, reconciling humanity back unto rightful relationship with The Creator of All Living!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we stand before You, gratefully acknowledging that it is nothing that we had, spoken in word, thought or deed that could ever warrant such awemazing goodness, but only because Your Faithful Covenant Loyalty, You continue to look beyond all of our faults, frailties and flaws, instilling in our hearts The Eternal Hope of Heaven, breaking up our fallow hearts, rebuking the stubbornness of our ungodly will, draw us out of the sinking swamp of sin, You opened our blinded eyes allowing us to see Your Glory in The Face of Jesus, our Messiah we have become Children of The Most High God!

Therefore, because no man can come to the Father, except he be drawn by Holy Spirit, we ask that as Your eyes roam throughout the earth, searching and knowing the minds and spirits of all You have created, touch our brothers and sisters who have yet to acknowledge and accept You as their personal Savior and Lord !

Prick their hearts with Your Spirit of Godly Repentance, flood their minds with humility to acknowledge their need for forgiveness for rebelling against Your Holy Statutes and Commands, and grant them The Mercy and Grace to confess You as The Only means of Righteousness and Restoration while it is yet today, that they may become vessels of honor in Your Kingdom, used mightily to provoke others to surrender their lives to You!

We pray for every backslider who has allowed the enemy to deceive and ensnare them to return to a lifestyle of sin for whatever reason! Father speak to their spirits now letting them know that it’s not Your Will that any should perish and that You are waiting with Loving and open arms to receive them back to the fold!  You are The Good Shepherd, eager to show mercy and forgiveness to all who will ask out of the sincerity of a pure heart! Lead and guide them to a local church where they will be greeted and welcomed, loved and nurtured that they might live out the rest of their lives in fear and admonition, privileged to know You, personally and experientially, as The Author and Finisher of The Faithful!

Abba Father, look on all those who are going thru tests, trials, trauma and tragedy, those who are overwhelmed with fear and anxiety because of the cares and pressures of this ungodly world! Strengthen those who are struggling to hold on to their faith, encourage their hearts in Your Word that they might remain confident that even when our hearts condemn us, You Abideth Faithful Forever! Send hope to the hopeless, empower the faint, lift up the downtrodden, restore marriages, broken relationships, rebuke ungodly soul ties, remember those who have unselfishly born the heath of the day, pushed us and prayed us through dangers seen and unseen! Father, given them sweet Peace, knowing that their labor is never in vain!

Lord, we ask that You keep us as only You can! Send peace to our hearts, joy to our souls, prosperity and love  into our homes, places of employment, the market places, our schools, communities and churches! Heal wounded spirits, loose unforgiveness, release forgiveness, restore sound minds, bind confusion, chaos and uncertainty, doubt and unbelief!

Prepare us for overcoming and conquering every obstacle, hindrances, delays, failure and disappointments! Impart unto our hearts and minds that we are more than conquerors though You, and when our enemies are too strong for us to defeat, give us Restful Assurance that because Your Strength is made perfect in our weakness , no weapon that’s formed against us shall prosper because You have sworn By Your Godself, to never leave us nor forsake us, we shall continue to stand still and see Your Salvation!

Precious Lord, because of Your Sovereign Omniscience, You already know that many of Your Children have been afflicted, attacked and tormented by all manner of sicknesses and diseases. However, because Your Word declares that Jesus is The Same, Yesterday, Today and Forever, You were wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities and the chastisement necessary for our Peace was placed upon You, By Your Stripes we were healed! We speak life and healing to our spirits, souls, minds and bodies! We stand in agreement in Your Word, as decreed in James 5:15, the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well and the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven! In Jesus Name AMEN 3X!

Abba Father, we lift 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’re trusting that You are Divinely orchestrating every step and every stop that they make, detouring and by-passing defeat and premature death! We have the Blessed Hopeful Assurance that the Peace of God is covering their spirits, souls, minds and bodies, releasing a Spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Heavenly Father, according to Your WORD, we lift up the leaders of our nation, federal and local governments, corporate, judicial, education, financial, health care institutions and our churches! As we transition into a new year, a new day, a new way and a new journey, 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 King of All Creation Who Lives, Reigns and Rules for Evermore and At The Name of Jesus, every knee shall bow and every tongue confess THAT YOU ARE LORD!

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! Empower and encourage their hearts and minds with confident hope that He that has begun a Good Work shall Complete it unto The Lord Returns! Assure them that whatever HEAVEN STARTS, HELL CAN NOT STOP, IN JESUS NAME! IT IS SO!

Lord, save, heal and deliver speedily all who are crying out to you, seeking Your Face at this very moment! Give us to know that because we belong to You, we are never too far that You can’t see us, reach us, and shield us from anything that the devil would rail against us. Help us to understand that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower, and those that run into it and are saved! We thank You for being our Great High Priest and for listening to the hearts of everyone whose spirits are united and fervently praying with us!

Father, because our steps are being ordered by You and You have committed Your Word towards us, no trouble, test or trial can come near us, except You have allowed it to train us to live each day solely depending on You. We know that You have already  pre-ordained the specific time of deliverance and breakthrough! We thank Holy Spirit, for fully persuading us of Your Providential Presence, Peace and Power to turn everything around to work in our favor and to bring about exuberant testimonies and praises of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory!

Sweet Holy Spirit, while there are so many other things that we have yet to mention, we’re trusting that You are not just able, but You’re willing to do anything that we ask, according to You Perfect Will. Therefore, we humbly decree believing You to FIX IT JESUS, AS ONLY YOU CAN!!

Finally Holy Father, as we patiently wait in confidence and quietness, we rejoice in hope, trusting wholly 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! Father, we thank You and seal this Prayer In The Holy Ghost, for WE KNOW THAT IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X and a HOLY HALLELUJAHHH!

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!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray and Praiz!

LIVE WHAT U BELIEVE!

LIVE WHAT U BELIEVE

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communication has light with darkness? And what accord has CHRIST with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of GOD with idols? For you are the temple of THE LIVING GOD. As GOD has said: “I WILL dwell in them And walk among them. I WILL be their GOD, And they SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.” 

 2 Corinthians 6:14-16
While few would disagree that segregation goes against the very essence of Christianity, there are certain circumstances where The Word of God embraces separation and it has absolutely nothing to do with the hue of your skin, the texture of your hair, the thickness of your lips nor the shape and size of your nose! HENCE, IT’S NOT A SKIN THING; IT’S A SIN THING!

We’re living in a space in time where the focus is no longer on living our lives faithfully obedient to the THE SPIRIT OF THE WORD, but how to make the WORD more accommodating, palatable, convenient and comforting to the masses in an effort to promote and fulfill our personal agenda rather than conforming to THE SOVEREIGN WILL OF OUR CREATOR! UUUMMMM??? Could this mentality BE the reason that sinners resist and so easily dismiss the relevancy of THE GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST? #ijs?

TRUTHBETOLD, IT’S CONFUSING, even for some of us seasoned soldiers of The Faith!  Don’t shout me down nah! Perhaps, we’d see more true conversions than compromise in The Kingdom if our VIDEOS aligned with our AUDIOS!Cuse my folly; guess I jus used one of my senior tokens, huh?

Jus glad I can remember when the ol’ Preachas taught that there was a difference between clean and unclean and saved and unsaved? They stood unapologetically proclaiming that if we were willing to surrender ALL our hearts, open our minds, spirits and our body to HIS WILL, God would provide enuff Grace and Mercy to live our everyday lives in such a way that their godliness would invoke the sinner to envy the righteousness, peace and joy (ZOE) that’s available to every believer through their personal relationship with The Savior and Lord Jesus Christ! #SERIOUSLY! THEY DID!

Remember, ‘Bacndaday’ the Ol’ Skool Mothers testified, encouraging the saints that instead of being content with jus having a CRUSH on Christ to FALL DEEPLY in LOVE with JESUS? #WOW!  And we didn’t get offended and cuss ’em out or threaten to leave the churrch! SHO NUFF! Well?

UR RIGHT, TIMES HAVE CHANGED! HOWEVRRRR, TRUST2KNO, GOD’S STILL LOOKING 4 THE SAME THING TODAY!

 

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:23-24

DIDJAKNO? Intentionally or NOT, WE ALL LIVE WHAT WE BELIEVE! #ijs!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
