UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

 

UNDER CONSTRUCTION 2018.jpg

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: Philippians 1:6

 

I wasn’t born and raised in the church like a lot of you. I was one of those who kinda fell up in the doors of the church after years of getting beat up and beat down by the devil’s abuse. But thanks be to GOD! The Gracious Compassion Savior took me in and saved me anyhow! Being naïve and overwhelmed with pure joy and gladness to be saved, I actually thought everybody would love, welcome, accept and celebrate with me, because they were so glad that I was now part of the family of God!

Needless to say, I was shocked to discover that people are still people—in and out of the church. I still remember Mother Annie Carter, (my 1st spiritual mentor) pulling me under her wing, warning me “Stay close to the praying part of the church, baby”.  At the time, I wasn’t quite sure what Mother was talkin about, howevrrrr, it didn’t take long for me to realize that only THE REAL TRUE GOD can make a saint!

Beloved, you see what I didn’t know was that the Church is a construction zone and the Master Builder is GOD! He doesn’t build His House with brick and mortar, but with flesh and blood (dirt and water)!  Through the Precious Blood of Jesus and the regenerating Power of THE WORD, Holy Ghost equips ordinary, imperfect people to do extraordinary exploits!

While, some of us just need a few minor adjustments, others may require little more or even a major overhaul. TRUTHBTOLD, most of us  are so jacked up by the time we got to Jesus that we need a longer stay in the furnaces of afflictions than others before we’re done.  So don’t be surprized when you get a little too close to a brother or sista and get pricked by a thorn!

Always remember, there’s some good in the worst of us and some bad in the best of us, okay?  Nonetheless, we are all under construction according to The Master Carpenter’s specs and all of us  need the same GOD to help all of us!

Even if your intentions are just and honorable, sometimes helping people can hurt you! The Scriptures back this up numerous times!  Yes, even the most sainted, faithful and committed servants of The High God can become entrapped, disenfranchised, hopelessly discouraged and find ourselves retreating to dark caves or the backside of mountains and valleys.  It doesn’t matter how long or how far you’ve walked with The Lord, any of  God’s faithful-elect, can find themselves overwhelmed by the cares of this world to the point that you’re tempted to just give up and leave the church! #shuturmouth!

But, before you do something foolish, can I remind you of this one thing? There is NO PLAN B!

We’re it! God chose us name by name to expand His Kingdom in the earth, fully ware of the challenges of this seemingly impossible task.  That’s why He sent Holy Ghost to equip you to overcome!  Yep,  The Holy Ghost is your personal trainer! He takes your everyday life, places you on pathways strategically designed to stretch and strengthen your christian character, develop your trust, build up your confidence and fortify your commitment!

While it may not always look like God’s anywhere to be found, HE IS ALWAYS RIGHT THERE preparing you for a glorious future!  (Ref. Hebrew 13:5)

 BELOVED, TRUST2KNO, HELL CAN’T STOP ANYTHING THAT HEAVEN STARTS! GOD COMPLETES EVERYTHING HE STARTS!  UNDER CONSTRUCTION? UUUHHH… REALLY…MAKE SURE YOU’RE WEARING UR HARD HAT! #Didjaheardat?

SELAH!

SELAH DAILY DEVOTIONS!

 

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

 

Precious Lord, as You know,  in the midst of social division,  our country has just gone through a new election process, therefore, as instructed in Your Word, we lift up every newly elected and incumbent state and federal government official, judicial, legislative, corporate and public service employee! We’re believing that You are speaking to them in dreams and visions and their hearts are being opened to hear and obey Your Will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Word as decreed that You shall never relinquish one iota of Your Sovereinty, The government of this world shall rest upon Your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
Holy Spirit, intervene on our behalf to expose and rebuke the murdering spirit, the spirit of doubt, unbelief, hesitation, manipulation and slouthfulness and release us from every ungodly soul tie and enable us to move forward away from the shores of comfort to embrace the thoughts and plans that You have for us! Birth in us new things, releasing an anointing to destroy yokes, and giving us hope in Your Eternal words that You are watering the dry places, and causing the dead bones to live again!

Help us to remain faithful and keep a Kingdom mindset, relying on the Holy Spirit to go before us and make our way prosperous. We believe You are dispensing overwhelming Favor, Prosperity, Peace and when these blessings are manifested, help us to walk in a spirit of humility giving Your Name all the Glory, Honor and Praiz!
Father, we declare and decree that every demonic-induced spirit of sickness and disease, yokes of oppression, depression, addiction, perversion, covetousness, bitterness and resentment, rejection, un-forgiveness, hopelessness, helplessness, doubt and fear is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

 

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

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.  Psalm 20:7

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10
Well! Well! Well! Here we go again, huh? America is waking up the morning after The Mid-term Elections! And once again, it depends on which side of the aisle your heart is seated on whether you’re  absolutely delighted or definitely discouraged. Now I know, according to some, it’s socialally irresponsible to mix politics with religion! Or was that waaayyyy backndaday? Needless to say, those of you who know me, already know that I’m generally much to real for a whole lotta folk, so can we jus talk?

Has anyone (besides me) evrrr jus wondered how so many of our caucasian (and those few Afro-American) evangelical bretheren could be such staunch supporters of #45 and at the same time profess their absolute devotion to The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? #ohnoshedidn’t! OH YES I DID! Honestly, to me, this scenario in itself seems nothing short of paradoxical! #ijs!!!

Now for you legalistic dogmatic religious enthusist who’re already looking at me some kinda way, I know that the Bible says, “Judge Not, lest Ye BE JUDGED”! (Ref. Matt. 7:1) There’s also another scripture that says, ““He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her! (Ref. John 8:7) please  allow me a few moments of  ‘senior folly’! I’m merely suggesting an alternative prospective for your  momentary consideration! Done lost ½ my church already, huh?

God, not willing that His children be ignorant of the enemy’s devices, has so graciously allowed anyone of us who lacks wisdom the privilege to merely ask Him! (Ref. James 1:5) 

Hence, last nite, I was awakened from my slumber, hearing the TV, that being my custom,  tuned into a very popular Religious Cable Network , and lo and behold I was enlightened! Much to my surprise, there was a partaa going on among some of the most prominent elite wealthy evangelical preachers who having graced this  humongous Red/White/Blue Flag drapped stage, were stirring up this large coliseum filled with GOP advocates! Now, the reason that this seemed strange,ly awkward was because before I drifted off to sleep, those who were broadcasting and analyzing the results of the evening’s nationwide election activities had just reported that “The DEMS HAD TAKEN THE HOUSE BACK”! But as I listened further, I heard that #45 was congratulating himself  (and Nancy Pelosi) because the “GOP had maintained CONTROL OF The Senate!” NOW I GUESS THAT’S WHAT U CALL BREAKING NEWS, huh?  Suddenly,   someone on the stage daring  to state the OBVIOUS cried out “AMERICA IS POLARIZED!”  #uthink??? 

Ahhh Shucks! Nah, I’m not always the shiniest penny in the pocket, BUT…I could’ve told ’em dat a long time ago!  GUESS NOBODY ASKED ME, right?

But, the epiphany didn’t jus stop there! As I continued listening to ‘the WORDS DAT WERE COMING OUT OF HIS MOUTH’, IIIIII HHHEEEARRD, one of them say, “America was in a nationwide REVIVAL! Because they had followed the leading of the Lord in 2 Chronicles 7:14 by praying for the nation and supporting God’s designated 21st Century Cyrus, #45, who was bold enuff to finally set in order the things necessary to make AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, (open the way to reverse, Roe vs. Wade; keep illegal aliens out but keep NRA in place, and give RELIGION a much needed VOICE; ridding the nation of Obamacare while subsidizing THE WEALTHY at the expense of Social Security recipients; ignoring perversion, deception and manipulation while denying obvious racial injustice) THE RED WAVE WAS STILL IN PLACE! THEN...he SO eloquently and prolifically dropped da bomb announcing, that THE RED WAVE was symbolic of a THE BLOOD OF JESUS sweeping across this nation!  SERIOUSLY! #OMG! #WHO KNU, right?

BUT! CALL ME IDIOTIC OR BI-POLAR if U want, but I’m gonna stick with THE BOOK! LET EVERY MAN BE A LIAR AND GOD B THE TRUTH! TRUST2KNO2, THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM, MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUST! AS 4 ME AND MY HOUSE, WE SHALL CONTINUE 2 SERVE THE TRUE AND LIVING GOD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH! Datz my story and I’m sticking with IT!

WELL, I GUESS…NOW U KNOW! #WOW!!! POLARIZING, huh? #ijs WAKE UP AMERICA!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Abba Father, in closing, we stand in agreement with The True and Living God, who hears and answers our prayers, and forgives our transgressions! Because You have chosen us, committing to love and care for us, our souls shout with unspeakable joy unto The One to Whom all men will come! We bow reverently before The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us, You are making Your Ways and Salvation known among all nations for You Reign, Rule and Guide justly!

Holy Father, believing that ACCORDING TO YOUR PERFECT WILL, In The Exalted Name of JESUS IT IS SO, WE CRY AMEN  AND HALLELUUJAHHHH 3X !
Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES EVERYBODY AND CAN SAVE ANYBODY!

SELAH!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord Acts 3:19

 

I am straight Holiness/Pentecostal todabone; jus ask anybody who knows me in church! I mean, I’ll shout you down in a heartbeat! But guess what? The devil ain’t stud’n you getting your praise on shoutin’ and dancin’, flip’n over pews, in the church house, as long as you don’t change! That’s right, I’m talking about repentance! Don’t touch dat button!

Notice? You don’t hear a whole lotta preaching about REPENTANCE, lately!  Apparently it carries such a negative connotation that tends to provoke unpalatable feelings of fear, condemnation and frustration that some churches have opted out of traditional biblical teachings, preferring to  institutionalize a more contemporal all-inclusive perspective of church as a gathering apparatus for religious/social networking! SO, I totally getit! 

Howevvvvttttr, those of us who have already accepted the Gift of Salvation offered  through The Atoning Grace of Jesus Christ  need to realize is that while we  have been commissioned  to share  The Love of Christ,  none of us have been given the power nor responsibility to make a person repent, particularly by threatening  them that they’re going to Hell!   #Didjaheardat? “Done lost 1/2 my churrch!”

BUT!!!! IF  you let them know how good The Lord is and what He’s ALREADY done for US to make us right with God, there a good chance that they’ll want to know Him for themselves!

Before the days of name it and claim it, and blab it and grab it, when a true prophet spoke, the only thing he promised was the WORD OF GOD! Really, check your Bible? John the Baptist preached the same message every day, “prepare ye the way, repent and be baptized, for the Lord is at hand”. When The Apostle Peter left the upper room, filled with the Holy Ghost, he came preaching the same message, “repent”Yall ain’t liking me nah, huh?

Some folk still believe repentance means going to the altar, echoing a confession and shaking the pastor’s/preacher/evangelist’s hand. But my beloved, genuine repentance is a matter of the heart and I don’t mean just feeling sorry. If you really want to experience authentic eternal fellowship with Jesus, you have to sanctify yourself through repenting from your heart.

2 Corinthians 7:10 explains, when a person truly repents, they’ll admit that they’re sincerely sorry for rebelling against God and living a sinful life; make a conscious commitment to change the way they live, turn their back AWAY FROM the devil and evil works, and TURN 2 JESUS, totally committing their lives to pleasing HIM and entrusting Holy Spirit to help them to keep their vow! 

Seriously, change your mind, change your life!

One of the best parts of repentance is taking back the personal power that we’ve allowed Satan to rule over our lives! Godly sorrow will make you stare the devil down and tell him in no uncertain terms,“No thank you, I don’t want to live like this anymore, it’s over! I DON’T BELONG 2 U, I BELONG TO JESUS! MY PAST IS COVERED IN THE BLOOD AND MY NEW LIFE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS! NOW , GET OUTTA MY FACE OR I’M GONNA CALL MY DADDY!

Beloved, don’t allow another moment of doubt, unbelief or fear cause you to forfeit the unimaginable blessings that God has prepared for us. (Ref. Jeremiah 29:11) The Bible says, the day you hear His Voice calling–just come! Didjaheardat? Can you hear HIM now?

C’mon SOMEBODY,  quickly! Please tell the devil, “ I CHANGED MY MIND!” GGGLLORRRAAA 2 GOD!

We recognize it’s only because of Your Loving Kindness and Commitment that we’re able to embrace this opportunity to enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace! We’re thankful that because You, knowing our frame, look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities yet You continue providing us our daily Bread!

Sweet Holy Spirit, as we embrace the day ahead, help us to start this day with an all consuming attitude of gratitude, trusting You to keep us safe from all hurt, harm and danger. Help us to make the best of each moment that You gift to us to glorify Your Name! Lord Jesus, clear our minds so that we can hear from You and cleanse our hearts that we may deny ourselves, trust and obey Your Will!

Sweet Jesus, as we look around this nation 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! Loose Your legions of ministering agents to meet the needs of Your people, releasing blessings and breakthroughs into their lives! Bind the Spirits of Death, Poverty and Defeat, In Jesus Name!

Holy Father, please help us to not whine and whimper over things we have no control, and let us show our gratitude that things are as well as they are by faithfully adhering to Your Word!And when this world seems to close in on us, please help us to follow the example that our Redeemer has given us and slip away to our secret quiet place to pray. When we’re pushed beyond our limited abilities, let Prayer be our 1st response! Give us the mind to bow before Our Great High Priest, releasing our burdens and casting our cares upon the Only Wise God and Savior! We know than when we do that our hearts are comforted and our souls are calmed by the reality that even when we can’t find the words to pray, You’re yet able to listen to our hearts, interpreting every moan, groan and sigh of our spirits and release relief to our souls!

Abba Father, bless us that we may be a blessing to others. Keep us strong that we may help the weak. Keep us uplifted that we may have words of encouragement for others. Help us to be an effective witness and to pray for all who don’t believe that You sent Jesus, not to condemn us, but to convict us and to free us from the power, pain and penalty of Sin.

Precious Jesus, as we pray for Your children everywhere, for every family member and friend, we’re believing and decreeing that a Spirit of Peace, Unity, Love, Hope and Joy is being released in our homes, places of employment, schools, communities, nation and church!We believe that Divine Favor is being poured out upon everyone who needs You and their faith is rising to a level that they shall be faithful and obedient to Your Word! Father, bless all of us who have made up in our minds, ‘COME WHAT MAY,’ we will sacrifice OUR will on The Altar of YOUR Will, expecting that You will reward us with supernatural abundance in every area of their lives!

We thank You for hearing the hearts of those who have never accepted Your Son Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord! We believe that Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart with a sincere YES” allowing them to come to You, humbled by Your Unconditional Love, in obedienc3 to Your call and are now receiving Your Mercy and Grace to Save. We Thank You for leading and guiding them to their designated local church, planting them in Your Vineyard, where they shall be taught and transformed by Your Word of Life to take their position in The Kingdom of Heaven.

We pray for all those who have walked away from You! Father, arrest them In The Holy Ghost, convict them to declare a “irrevocable committed YES” to Your Purpose for their lives, because You Alone are The Hope of This Life and The Life to come! Let today be their day to come back to You and back to YOUR church where they will restored as they submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, and learn to love and live their lives walking to please You First!

We cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, realizing that ‘such were some of us’, however, at the appointed time You snatched our lives out of the pit of destruction. We thank You Sweet Jesus, 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, no weapon that’s formed against them shall prosper and every tongue that speaks against them is already condemned!

Heavenly Father, according to Your WORD, we pray for the leaders of our nation, corporate, judicial, education, financial institutions and our churches! 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! We bind principalities powers, rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness in high places, every demonic strongman over this nation and the world. We shut down every ungodly portal and disable every line of communication that attempts to hinder the effectual feverent prayers of the Righteous and The Word of Truth!

Abba, You know the frailness of our flesh, and how easily we’re provoked, tempted to lose our focus and become overwhelmed by the cares of this world! Sometimes our hearts are burdened with the pressures of this life, wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness and disease, financial debt, marital issues, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions, insecurities and grief, Father remember us!

Heavenly Father, we thank You for listening to the hearts of everyone whose spirits are united and fervently praying with us!

Father, because the our steps are being ordered by You, we walk confident that 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.

GM FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAZING!

Once again, we are grateful that you’re joining us in our weekly Day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We appreciate every opportunity and privilege extended to us that we might entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest, pouring out our hearts desires, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. Humbled by such graciousness, we bow before Him, embracing Him in earnest expectation, confident that He Rules Forever by His Power is able to save and deliver us from any of life’s maladies we grab hold to The Horns of The Altar now to worship Him…

Welcome into this place! Welcome into this broken vessel! You desire to abide in the praises of Your people, so we lift our hands, as we lift our hearts and we offer up this praise unto YOUR NAME!Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me! …shall we pray?

 
Father of All Glory Who Reigns Victoriously over and far above the circle of the Earth! We rise this morning to give You All the Praiz and Honor that’s due to You! For You Alone are our God, The Source of our being, The Supplier and Strength of Everything that we will ever need pertaining to this life and the life to come. It’s in You that we live, in You that we move! As we come boldly bowing before Your Presence, we thank You for one more day to behold The Wonder of Your Majesty! We’re eternally grateful that when our hearts are overwhelmed with fear, doubt, confusion, Your Compassion beckons us to draw nigh to the Rock that’s Higher than I, welcoming us to embrace The Joy, The Hope and Peace that we can always find in Your Presence! And for this cause, we enter into Your Gates with Thanksgiving and into Your Courts with Praiz!
We thank You for Your tender mercy and loyal love that’s extended towards such frail, fickled fleshy frames who have a mind to continue looking to You to preserve and protect us from all hurt, harm and danger. For You have so Graciously Committed Your Word to watch over us! We’re thankful that You loved us so much that You were willing to Sacrifice Your Only Begotten Son in our stead in order to reconcile sinners back into right relationship with such a Holy God! For this cause we continuously exalt The Blessed Name that You have given us, that’s above every other name that can be named! We bless the Name of Jesus, trusting that at that Name, every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess JESUS IS LORD of, over and through all!

Sweet Jesus, we thank You for entrusting the Precious Gift of Holy Spirit Whom You sent to reside on the inside of our hearts and our lives. You knew that we needed Christ in us to help us, teach us, lead and guide us, strengthen and encourage us, to calm our fears and comfort our doubting hearts, keeping us when the cares and challenges of the wicked worldly systems sought to devour the VICTORY that we have found in You!

We thank You, Heavenly Father, for forgiving us when unwillfully and yes sometimes willfully do, say and think those unrighteous things that grief Holy Spirit, forgetting the price that was paid to remove the debt and penalty that we who were guilty, owed, but because of Your Lovingkindness, You allowed The Righteous to endure the Cross, despising the shame that the chastisement be placed upon Jesus for our Peace would be acceptable in Your Sight! Therefore, help us to never take for granted, or frustrate The Grace that was so freely poured out on us. Forgive us today, wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, restore us to proper relationship, to hate what You hate and delight in what delights You! Empower us to walk upright before You!

Abba Father, we know that Satan has blinded the eyes and minds of all those who are yet enslaved by The Darkness of this world, and that unless You lift the veil and open the eyes of their understanding, no man can come to You! We know assuredly that it’s not Your Will that any should perish and that it’s only the Goodness of The Lord that allows any of us to repent! Therefore, we come humbled by such undeserved favor, praying now that You break up the fallow ground, pierce rebellious spirits with a Spirit of Godly-Repentance and put a “SINCERE YES” setting free their captive hearts to cry out “What must I do to be saved?” Wash them in Your Atoning Blood and direct their steps to a local church where they will be received in Love, nurtured in Your Will and Ways and empowered to be Children of Light, reflecting The Wonder of Your Amazing Grace that invoke others to envy the New Life that’s available to any who seek Your Salvation!

Holy Spirit, we lift up the backsliders, who have for whatever reason been duped into leaving The sanctity of The Good Shepherd’s sheepfold! Send a undeniable Word to their hearts that they will understand that You are A Loving Compassionate Father, swearing by Your Own Hurt, to be married, not divorced to those who would repent, come running back to You, offering a “COMMITTED YES” and trusting that You The Only Wise Savior and Lord, will welcome them home with joy and not judgment, restore them to righteousness, and plant them in the Body of Christ, root and and ground them that they might grow into trees of righteousness, become teachers and leaders, exemplifying The Wondrous Works of God’s Grace and Mercy to a lost and dying world!

Precious Jesus, as Your Eyes roam to and fro through out the land, we ask that You rebuke the Spirits of confusion, anxiety and depression that’s attempting to bound the hearts and minds of Your Elect. Send strength to the widows, widowers, those wearied by grief mourning the loss of loved ones! Deliver the souls burdened by seemingly impossible time-sensitive situations! Heal those who’s bodies are afflicted by all manner of sickness and diseases. Lift up the bow-down heads of those down-trodden by disappointment, discouragement, delusioned by hopelessness and intimidated by fear! Remember those who have born the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through! Lord, give them sweet Peace knowing that their labor is never in vain!

Abba Father, we intercede on behalf of families, fathers and mothers, heal broken hearts and restore marriages that have been disrupted by abuse, betrayal and unforgiveness and divorce; restore respect, rebuke rebellious wayward children, pull down strongholds that threatened the peace, prosperity and unity of our homes! Send signs and wonders, work miracles, open closed doors, close doors that lead to death and destruction as You make ways out of no way, In Jesus Name!
Father, 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! We cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, help us to remember from whence You have brought us! We thank You for the benevolence and patience that we have for them, realizing that You also have a plan and purpose for their lives!
