GOOD MORNING FAM! We are so excited that you’ve joined us in our Weekly Thursdays’ Day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We are truly blessed that our Heavenly Father so graciously allows us to come before His Throne of Mercy and Grace anytime there’s a need! What a Loving, Compassionate Great High Priest, huh? Beloved, let’s enter into His gates with Thanksgiving and into His Courts with Praise, fully persuaded that He hears us and since we know He hears us, we can claim the victory over every concern and care in advance! Let’s go in…

LORD, YOU ARE GOOD AND YOUR MERCY ENDURETH 4EVERRRR! LORD YOU ARE GOOD AND YOUR MERCY ENDURETH 4EVERRRR! PEOPLE OF EVERY NATION AND TONGUE, FROM GENERATION 2 GENERATION, WE WORSHIP YOU! HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! WE WORSHIP YOU 4 WHO U ARE!….Let’s pray…

 

GOOD MORNING FATHER! GOOD MORNING LORD! GOOD MORNING HOLY SPIRIT!

We bless You for this day! This is a new day that we’ve never seen before and will never see again!! We come in child-like faith, before The Father of All Grace, Mercy and Comfort, rejoicing in hope, for this is the day that You have made! We thank You for watching over us last night as we rested safely in our beds, surrounded by Your Loving-Kindness,  with a roof over our heads! We know that we can’t ever take thany of these things for granted, especially  these days of time! We thankya Jesus for awakening us this morning, allowing us the activities of our limbs, being clothed in the right mind to know what, where, who and WHOSE we are! We praise You Holy Spirit for instructing our hearts to seek You first, earnestly praying the prayer of faith, trusting that as we commit all of our way to You, You are well able and willing to daily provide all of our needs according to Your Riches in Glory!

 

We bow in Holy reverence, praising You O Lord, for You are our Portion! While some trust in chariots, and some trust in horses, our Hope shall forever remain in You Alone! We look to The True and Living God, Jehovah, The Great Deliverer, The Keeper of our Souls! As pray, in The Majestic Name that is above every other name that can be named, JESUS, we ask that You forgive us for every sin, every word spoken, every thought, every deed and every intent of our hearts that was not pleasing in Your Sight! Knowing that You’ve promised that if we confess with our mouths, believing in our hearts that You will forgive us, wash us in The Sacrificial Blood of Your Lamp, You are Faithful and Just to forgive and restore our our right relationship with/in You we ask, Lord forgive me!

Abba Father, because You said, if I be lifted up from the earth, I’ll draw all men unto me, we pray that as ,You Holy Father, are searching the hearts of men everywhere , remember that no man can come to The Father, except You draw us! Therefore, we pray for men everywhere, especially those of the Household o Faith! Save that one who is closes to Hell’s firey-destruction today! Break-up their stony hearts, quicken their dead spirit with a Spirit of Godly Repentance, that they may cry out to You, “LORD, WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?” Plant a “SINCERE YES’ into their hearts and minds and order their steps to a local church where they’ll be received with Love and Joy, nurtured and instructed in the WORD, WILL AND WAYS of their personal Savior and Lord! In Jesus Name!

Father God, we lift up every backslider who has been deceived, by Satan, drawn away by their own lustful desires and foolishly walking away from You, The Only Hope of Salvation! Precious Savior, remind them of Your Promise that You are Married to the backslider and if they’d humble themselves and pray, You will never deny nor forsake any who’s hearts cry is a ‘COMMITTED YES LORD!”Assure that one that You are The Good Shepherd, who welcomes with outstretched Love, any repented soul back into The Kingdom Fold!

 

Sweet Jesus, today we cry out for those who need help, hope, deliverance and salvation! You have given us a spirit of a strong mind, therefore we do not fear what the enemy can do! We do not fear what man can do. Hence, we ask you to intervene on our behalf, move uponYour church today! Thankya for leaders who are listening to You preaching, teaching and living Your Word as beacons of Light amidst the gross darkness of this ungodly world! Thankya for opening the eyes of our understanding and loosing us into our destiny! Thank You Holy Spirit for inspiring Hope that springs eternally!

Father, as we lift up our children, our children’s 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 are being ordered by Your eyes! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds and bodies releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

 

Precious Savior, as we yield before You today, in reverent worship-filled boldness, we’re yet believing You to move upon the stony hearts of all those who have no compassion for families children, those who are suffering, those who have lack. While, it’s not always easy to do, but in obedient trust, we ask that You look on presidents, kings, leaders and all those who You have positioned in places of authority, visit them in the nighttime with dreams and visions, touch their hearts, change hearts and minds, and redirect their course, lead and guide them to pursue the old landmarks along the pathways of holiness and righteousness!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we pray for the church to be the CHURCH and strip us from every demonic influence! You have called us to impact and to be influencers in the midst of this lost and ungodly world. Grace Your Children to pray for our enemies and all those who despitefully use us! Help us to bless those who are bitter and speak evil of us that our faith may be a sign that we belong to You! Empowered by Holy Spirit, we pronounce blessing, joy, peace, favor upon all who trust you, as You prepare a table before our enemies!

Lord send confirmation to those whose faith may be wavering as we’re waiting for Your Hand to move on our behalf. Thank You for allowing our pain to birth greatness in us, transition us into new levels of Your anointing, opportunities, relationships and restoring that which is broken! We ask that you help us to move by faith, remembering not the former things but confidently reaching forward fully persuaded and anticipating that everything you have promised already is!

Lord, as You are seated high above the circle of the earth, You see all those things that are coming against Your Will, Your Plan, and we know that it’s only because many of Your creationcs yet fail to acknowledge You as The One True God, King of kings and Lord of lords! Father,  nevertheless, ewmwmvwe those of us who identify with the Cross today as we cry out to You, for You are THE POWER, THE GLORY, THE ETERNAL LORD, Sovereignly ruling above all kings! Because  ALL POWER is  in Your Hands, You have the power to speak life to dead things! Because the Power of Life and Death is in You, You have the Power to keep us in the operating room, dialysis, court room, chemotherapy and psychotherapy! You can still rebuke cancer, mental disorders, shrink tumors, heal skeptical diseases, regulate and heal blood disease! You are not bound by anything! According to Your authority, we call all flesh to line up with Your Will and Your Word, in Jesus Name Amen 3x!!!

Father God, as we pray for our children, our grand and great grands, we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives. “We cancel every plot and scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them As we commit their lives into Your Providential care, we acknowledge that You have a plan and purpose for each of their lives and with the Blessed Assure that their steps are being Divinely orchested by Your Eyes, we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds and bodies! We release a Spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God-Ordained destiny in Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we lift up our spiritual leaders,  believing for an immediate manifestation of that special miracle that those who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word, under the convicting anointing of Holy Spirit! We’re trusting and believing that You will Grace each of them to be the examples in their homes, churches and communities that will entice all who come into contact with them to fall deeply in Love with Jesus and make a decision to follow Your Teachings!

You have allowed us to see in the spirit before we see in the natural and call those things which be not, as though they already exist! Therefore we declare and decree that we see our loved ones free from every addiction; we see them Saved, Sanctified, walking in the newness of Life! We see them filled with the Precious Gift of Holy Spirit, empowered and walking worthy and circumspectfully, giving You the Glory for Salvation, Healing and Deliverance, because of Your Mercy and Grace toward us!

As we stand in agreement on behalf of all who are crying out for their children, grands, great grands, we’re believing that their souls are being comfort ed today! We rebuke guilt, shame and condemnation! We bind every lying spirit who would have them in bondage to past failures, mistakes! Remind them that all have sinned and come short of Your Righteous, but because of Your Great Mercy, we were not consumed! Remind them that JESUS PAID THE SIN DEBT FOR US ALL and because of HIS Cleansing, Delivering, Sanctifying Atoning Blood that was shed for all, once and for all we are free to live the holy, acceptable and pleasing lives that You have purchased for any who will accept The Gift of Eternal Salvation!

Holy Redeemer, because of the frailness of our flesh we know that perhaps there are so many issues and concerns we could and should pray about that escapes our minds. Nevertheless, we lift up every unspoken request before Your Majestic Throne now! Remember those who are broken hearted, feeble in body and spirit, the ones at a crossroad of life, the ones addicted to harmful substances, our armed forces, policemen, fire and rescue personnel, nurses, doctors, pastors and leaders, missionaries far and near; the leaders of the world. We’re trusting You to send peace where there is confusion, send love where there is hate, send unity where there is division. Bless the fatherless and motherless. Keep us ALL in your care. These favors we ask in Jesus Mighty Name!!

LORD GOD, as we close our prayer, standing  prayerfully in the gap for these traumatized children and these heartbroken mothers and fathers that have been separated, we ask PLEASE LORD help these mothers and fathers be re-united with the 2,000 children that have been placed in detention centers all over the land before this executive order. Send your Guardian Angels to these detention centers. Lord God please watch over these children who are being transferred all over different states, some far away from their parents. LORD GOD, MOVE on their behalf. Break the yoke of the strongman!

Holy Father, we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and 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 prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Abba Father, we stand in agreement with You Who hears ours prayers and forgives our transgressions! Holy Father, because You have chosen to live in Your House, we shout with exceeding Joy unto 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 Guide and Rule justly!

Father, believing that is done, we thank You NOW! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X and It Is So!
Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS STILL SAVES, HEALS AND DELIVERS!

SELAH!

GOD IS HOLY, BUT MINISTRY IS MESSY

GOD IS HOLY BUT MINISTRY IS MESSY

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at His footstool—HE IS HOLY.

Moses and Aaron were among His priests, And Samuel was among those who called upon His name; They called upon the LORD, and He answered them.

He spoke to them in the cloudy pillar; They kept His testimonies and the ordinance He gave them.

You answered them, O LORD our God; You were to them God-Who-Forgives , on their deeds. Exalt the LORD our God, And worship at his Holy hill, For the LORD our GOD IS HOLY. Psalm 99:5-9

 

Considering all that God has done through the Life, Death, Burial and Resurrection of our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ, it’s just our reasonable service to esteem His Righteousness and exalt His Name as Awesome and Worthy of reverent adoring praise and worship! After all, except Jesus humbling Himself, leaving The Holiness, Glory and Majesty He’d known throughout Eternity Past, coming down to dwell among wormy humanity, we’d never know the Love, Justice, Equity and Righteousness of The Invisible Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient Living God and Creator!

And to think, He was so committed to fulfilling His Father’s plan and purpose for His most precious of all creation, He submitted Himself so graciously,  ignoring our rejection and despising the shame and bore the burden of our sin that we might become sons of God! #AWEMAAZING #GRACE

He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: John 1:11-12

Likewise, we who have accepted the Benefits of so great a Salvation, have been charged with the responsibility to carry out our Redeemer’s assignment that His Joy may be filled to the overflow! Unfortunately, as God’s Intercessors Moses, Aaron and Samuel discovered, the pathway of Righteousness is often plagued with test, trials, trauma and travesty! In other words, it’s not always easy to help those you’re assigned to minister to! Ministry is Messy!

Nevertheless, it behooves us to remember Whose we are and Who we’ve been called to serve!  In other words, since we represent Christ, we must take on the same character. It ain’t about making a name for ourselves but it’s about lifting up The Name of Jesus! This tremendous task requires compassionate gentleness, meekness, discipline, loads of tolerance and a whole lotta intentional knowing that Sinners sin and hurting people, hurt people!

“If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me!” John 15:19-21

Didjaheardat?

Beloved, if it had not been for the LORD, reaching way down and snatching you and I out of our miry clay, where would we be?  I don’t know about you, but my heart yet flutters  shamefully at such thoughts! BUT GOD, huh? Yes Lawd!

For I say unto you, That except your righteousness, shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.” Matthews 5:20

Never 4get, we are all called to be intercessors, if for no other reason but eternal gratitude! Hence, don’t be so easily offended but gird up the loins of your mind, strap yourself in the whole armour of God and report for duty!

TRUST2KNOW, without the test, there’d be no testimonies and without treking though the swamp of human misery, there’d be no ministry! #ijs…MINISTRY IS MESSY! #CARRYON!!!

THURSDAYS PRAYERS!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

GM Bros. And Sistas! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAAZIN!

We are delighted that you’ve joined the Praying Church in our weekly day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We believe that as we unite our voices, calling on Lord Jesus, we invoke the Presence of our Heavenly Father who promises to intervene on our behalf causing us to become more than conquers over anything that attempts to destroy us! Is there any among you sick, weak, afflicted, ill-treated or faint-hearted, then as James 5:13 instructs, let’s pray!

Great is Thy Faithfulness, O God our Father! There is no shadow of turning with Thee. Thy changes not; Thy compassion fail not; as Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be! Morning by morning new mercies I see; ALL I HAVE NEEDED THY HAND HATH PROVIDED—GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS, LORD UNTO ME!

 
Our Father and our God of Heavens and Earth, we come before You, humbled by Your Loving-Kindness, Grace and Mercy! We’re eternally grateful for one more opportunity to behold The Glory of Your Presence! We know that it’s Your Wisdom and Strength that has kept us alive today! We thank You for revealing to us such wondrous treasures that were hidden from our understanding, when we walked surrounded by darkness, as dead men in the earth without a God on our side!

Abba Father, it’s only because of You, that we know to cherish this day and not take it for granted as if we have a right to be alive! But, because of You, we now live, move and have our being! We come with our hearts rejoicing, hands lifted up and our lips forever praizing You! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preseved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!

Sweet Jesus, as we now bow before You, empty and void of anything that would remotely warrant such awesome graciousness, it is with eternal gratitude we praise You for the glorious gifting of being benefactors of All that You are in the eyes of our Heavenly Father! Because of Your Faithful Obedience and determined Will to please the Father’s Heart, You sacrificed Your Glory, submitting Your Innocence to death, hell and the grave to pay a debt that we were unable to pay, to purchase a Salvation that we did not deserve! For this cause we sanctify our spirits, souls and bodies in faithful obedience to Your Will, as our only reasonable service in gratitude for Your Amazing Grace!

Lord Jesus, because You are Omniscient and Omnipresent, You already know everything about every single one of us! You walked among us, allowing Yourself to be tempted at all points as we are; You learned what we experience in these earthly tabernacles, therefore You can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! As our Great High Priest, You intercede on our behalf, continuously searching and conveying the thoughts, intents, emotions and physical weaknesses that we’re often unable to articulate to The Father of All Grace, Compassion and Comfort! Heavenly Father, we acknowledge You as the Source of our Salvation, Strength, Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding, Hope, Power and Peace! As we open our hearts to You, yielding our being before you, we Thankya Lord, for being our Very Present Help!

Knowing our frame, Your Faithfulness and Compassion continuously allow You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to see and minister to all of our real need! Therefore, we now ask that You forgive us for everything that we’ve done, or failed to do, spoken or thought that violated Your Righteous Standards! Trusting in Your Word that promises that if we confess our sins with a mind to repent, You are Faithful and Just to forgive us, cleanse us in The Precious Blood of Jesus and restore us back to our right-standing with Our Heaven Father!

Lord, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word, sometimes, it’s difficult to over-rule the noise of the pestilence, the chaos of uncertainty and the pain of condemnation, guilt, and shame that seems to lure us into the valleys shadowed with danger, fear, anger, bitterness, anxiety, hopelessness and self-doubt! That’s why we gladly run to You, daily, to find the refuge, peace, restoration that You have prepared for any who would come to You in hope-filled assurance that even when our hearts condemn us,You will never deny Your Word!

Precious Lord, because no man can come to The Father except You draw him, we pray for every lost soul who has yet to come into the knowledge of Your Saving Grace! We’re believing You to ignite a spirit of Godly-repentance that will break up the fallow ground of hearts hardened by sin, enabling them to confess with their mouths a “Sincere YES” and believe in their hearts, and giving a desire to come to you today and receive You as their personal Savior and Lord!

Lord, we’re believing You to put a “Committed YES” in the hearts and minds of every backslider today that this will be their day to come back to You and come back to YOUR church where they will be greeted with love, nurtured in The Truth of Your Word and empowered by Holy Spirit to live the rest of their lives, glorifying You as The Way, The Truth, Life and Light a lost and dying world.

Father, so many of Your children have been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease! We’re asking that You touch our brother, touch our sister releasing them from from every physical and mental infirmity, even the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, high blood pressure, low blood pressure, depression, dementia, anxiety and fear! By the authority of Your Word, we rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. We come into agreement with your Word and declare 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! And as You are strengthening these, we ask that you also invigorate, encourage and replenish the spirits, minds and bodies of those who are charged to care for their loved ones!

Lord, we believe that You are releasing and manifesting a double portion of Supernatural, power, peace, strength, consolation, health, provision, prosperity, protection, soundmindedness, forgiveness and restoring broken relationships and marriages! As we look to You, we trust You will preserve all who are going thru tests and trials that You have Sovereignly summoned us to, keeping us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that You will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with every reward as You have promised in Your Word. For Your Word declares that You are near to those of a broken heart and a contrite spirit!

Father, as we lift up our children, our children’s children and 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 are being ordered by Your eyes! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds and bodies releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Sweet Jesus, we lift up every spiritual leader, asking an immediate manifestation of that special miracle for them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit. Jesus, we’re trusting and believing that you will 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 with You, trust wholly in and commit to live the rest of their lives serving You!

Father, stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name that they will have a desire for an even greater personal, intimate relationship with Creator God through fellowship of Holy Spirit that they might prove what is the perfect and acceptable will of The Lord Jesus!

Knowing that POWER BELONGS TO GOD and You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, lifting up and dismantling abusers of delegated authority, we pray for national/local government/legislative/judicial/corporate leaders and social service workers of our nation and the world!  Heavenly Father, we thankful that You will visit them in the night seasons with dreams and visions, warning them that He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment. He who digs a hole and scoops it out will fall into the pit he has made. The trouble he causes recoils on himself and his violent schemes will come down on his own head.

Precious Lord, Your Word clearly warns us of these endtimes! There’s no doubt that we are living in the last of the last days! Therefore, we’re asking that You endow the hearts of Your people with a peace that surpasses all understanding and the confident expectation that our times are in Your Hands! Regardless of the deceitfulness of this world, You have promised to protect, provide and preserve the righteous who trust and obey Your Word! We ask that you continue to open the eyes of understanding so that Your people are not easily deceived by those who would desire to entrap your children in bondage to that which You have delivered us from!

Abba Father, give us the spiritual insight  to discern the doctrines of devels! Help us to understand that salvation only comes to those who trust in the Name of Your First Begotten Son, Jesus! For HE ALONE has the Power to save us. We’re believing for immediate manifestations of signs and wonders of Your Goodness, proving to our enemies that No Weapon that’s Formed Against us shall prosper and every tongue that raises up to contend with us, Thou shall condemn! Torment our enemies by preparing a table of blessings for Your children that is exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond all that we ask or image, in the presence of our enemies! For You, Who searches minds and hearts will continue to shield, help, comfort and save those whose hearts are upright before You.

Father, we declare and believe that every demonic-induced spirit of temptation, addiction, oppression, depression, rejection, self-hate, suicide, fear and failure is already defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness is being released now, in Jesus Name!

Father, we seal this prayer, rejoicing  in confident expectation and quietness, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat! We praise You Father, confidently assured that You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayers as sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy, You will not withhold Your Mercy from us and Your Love and Your Truth is a wall around us!

Abba Father, we revere, honor and praise You now, for we trust and believe that In The Exalted Name of Jesus it is done! Amen 3X and It Is So!

HOLY WAR!

HOLY WAR

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15

..”for nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few” 1 Samuel 14:6b

 

In The 3rd Chapter of The Book of Ecclesiastics The Preacher, Solomon, offers his observations on the purpose of times and seasons that God appoints throughout our journey in an attempt to answer the age old question of humanity, “Why am I here?”  Reflecting back, I recognize that my time on Terra Firma continues to swiftly transition through certain uncertainties, predictable resistance and uncommon clarity, leaving me totally dependent upon my Creator!

The Holy Writ alerts us to the inevitable reality that there is a Devil on the loose, who has dedicated himself to fulfilling his #1 Mission: to steal, kill and destroy the peace, comfort, joy and hope of everyone who has been created in the image of God!  Hence, Beloved, contrary to this contemporized Millennuim psyche, there’s a war going on! Therefore, as The Apostle Peter advised, we should expect to be tempted by tests, trials, trouble, trauma and tragedy! (Ref. 1 Peter 4:12-13)

However, along with this ominous warning, our Heavenly Father also gives us His Eternal Assurance, “And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8

Unfortunately, most of our attacks come from unseen forces! Satan has become quite proficient in throwing rocks and hiding his hands. Then he sits back relishing the chaos, confusion, havoc and vengence that we wreak upon one another. Notwithstanding, God has equipped, those who elect to walk by faith, with a Spirit of Discernment that forges beyond the natural, piercing into the real of the SUPERNATURAL!  Armed and readied  with weapons that are not carnal, but mighty through God, enables us to triumphantly invade and eradicate the forces of evil every time! (Ref. 2 Corinthians 10:4; Romans 8:37)

Just knowing that we’re encompassed about by enemy forces is not always enough, you gotta know when to hold ’em, and when to fold ’em, huh? In order to be successful in your conquest, it is vital that you remain strategically positioned to hear the instructions of The Captain of The Lord’s Host. TruthBtold, while God teaches our hands to war, some battles are not meant for us to fight! #Seriously!

Just like King Jehoshaphat, when we’re challenged by demonic intimidations, we must resist out flesh’s pressure to bow down to our fears and take matters into our own hands! But rather our response should be to immediately turn our face toward our Master in fervent prayer and worship! By making prayer your daily regiment, we build up our most holy faith. When the enemy comes upon us suddenly, instead of retreating to imminent defeat and surrendering to hopelessness and despair, we automatically fire up our faith in the Trustworthiness of The Power and Promises of God! God prefers Faithfulness above sacrafice!

Strapped in unwavering holy confidence that Greater is He who is in us than anything that stands against us, we boldly march towards adversity, trusting that our God will turn it around in our favor and make it work together for our highest good and His Greatest Glory! (Ref.  1 John 4:4; Romans 8:28)

Prayer and Praiz are the believers emblems, signifing that our hope rests in God and not in ourselves, ordaining The Strength of God to move, intervening on our behalf sending terror throughtout the enemies camp!

A BURNING BUSH!

A BURNING BUSH 1

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

 

And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush and he looked, and behold, the bush burned with fire and, the bush was not consumed. Exodus 3:2

 

Moses probably began this day just as he’d began many others. The scripture says, he was doing what he’d normally do; taking care of his father-in-law, Jethro’s, sheep when his day abruptly takes a turn from the mundane to the extremely unusual. Anybody ever been there?

They say, that there’s nothing unusual about finding a bush in the desert, yet it would certainly make anyone stop to ponder, at least momentarily, huh? The scripture said as Moses looked, he noticed that the bush was burning, but it was not consumed. Not only did the fire not burn the bush up, but then the burning bush began to talk.

Wow! God really knows how to get your attention!

Sometimes we’re so pre-occupied with the demands of our 21st Century lifestyles that we miss those Divinely-orchestrated Interruptions. You know how we’re so purpose driven now – that we can’t dare to spare a moment. After all, time is money, right? Amazingly, our society has become so consumed with pursuing our desires, goals, getting our degrees, larger houses, cars, and yes even our families that somehow, we never seem to include God in our time-lines. I mean, really? Ever heard that saying,‘you got what you wanted but you lost what you had’?

I believe, that sometimes God will interrupt our active lives and draw us to the backside of a mountain into a desert place, just to get your undivided attention. In other words, sometimes God starts some bush fires! #ijw

Remember, that situation that seemed to jus pop off out of nowhere and now all of a sudden it’s burning out of control, threatening your peace, your joy, even disturbing your well being. And let’s not forget about that family-drama? I mean, as soon as you think you got it under control, something flares up on your job. The bushes just keep on burning. It jus may be God, trying to tell you something!

Remember how sweet life was, bacndaday? You know, when America was Great!  My…my… my, how times have changed, huh?  As the ol’ folk used to say, ‘who knew that there’d be days like this!’ Surely, we’re living in the last of the last days, huh?  Glancing around, it looks like this whole world has turned upside down! What used to be right, is not called wrong, what used to be in is now out and ain’t nobody got time to seek God for His opinion of nothing no more!  Nevertheless, God’s Faithful Compassion refuses to be intimidated by our negligence! #DIDJAHEARDAT?

Remember, God was there, waiting for Moses all along, but it was not until Moses turned aside, did God reveal GODself! The next time you find yourself ambushed by bush fires, instead of pitchin’ a hissy-fit, murmuring. complaining and blaming God, take a moment and seek the face of God. Remember, wherever God is, is Holy ground!

HE’S NOT ONE TO BE IGNORED! HE’S — A CONSUMING FIRE!

BEHOLD OUR GOD!

 

BEHOLD OUR GOD

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid, for YAH, the Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation. Therefore with joy you will draw water From the wells of salvation. Isaiah 12:2-3

Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me. Isa. 49:16

 

In light of prevailing gross darkness and prevalent winds of foreboding devastation and desolation in our world today, it’s no wonder that we’re stressed out, huh? Even those who have placed their faith in the Saving Grace of Jesus very souls have been vexed by the state of this nation! In answer to my prayerful inquiry, ‘Precious Lord, what’s going on?’,  I was incited by the Comforting Presence of Holy Spirit to review the words of God’s Prophet, Isaiah, speaking to the remnant of God’s Elect nation.

According to the text, once again, God’s people find themselves facing eminent danger of massive destruction, yet we hear Isaiah offering  words of warning and hope that we’d do well to glean from today! The Prophet encourages them that no matter what’s happening around you, don’t be afraid, but keep trusting and praising our God! Isaiah, knowing God inhabits the praises of His people, speaks to souls wearied by the consequences of unwise choices and reminds them that their only hope of deliverance was to remain steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of their Lord! (Ref. 1 Corinthians 15:58)

Saints, the first step in overcoming any challenge is to keep the main thing the main thing! God is Holy, Righteous and Just! While He must punish the unjust, His Anger does not last forever! Unlike many of our earthly fathers, YAH is our covenant-keeping God and remains a Faithful Father, Saving Strength, Shield, Provider and Redeemer to all who call upon Him! From His own Mouth, Abba Father promises to wipe away the tears from our faces and keep us in perfect peace just because we trust in Him! #Didjaheardat?  WOW! (Ref. Isaiah 25:8, 26:3-4)

Beloved, when life is out of your control, set your affections on The Eternal Hope of the Ages and not the temporary circumstances of this present time! Rest assured, Jesus is always in control!  God’s Word declares that you are the apple of His eye and He has tatooed your name in the palm of His Hands forever. (Ref. Psalm 17:8; Isa. 49:16)

In the midst of these unsettling times, I adjourn you to keep your eyes on Jesus, The Joy of your Salvation! Precious ones, when you can’t see no way, why not confuse hell and praiz JESUS anyhow! Don’tchaknow? At the mere mentioning of THE NAME OF JESUS demons tremble and the angelic host is put on alert!

Ooooh Yeah! TRUST2KNOW, The Great and Holy One of Israel is closer than ever before! Therefore, Precious Ones, don’t be deceived by temporary circumstantial evidence! Hold on to every Promise we’ve been given by your Covenant Keeping Lord and Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.”  (Psalm 121:4)  LOOK UP AND BEHOLD YOUR GOD!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then, you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:8-9

Whaa Da? I get it! In the midst of the myriad of prominent prolific pastors, poised preachas, pulpit pounding prosperity phophets, packed out padded pews, dazzling mood lighting, symphonic sound systems and praiz and worship leaders (auditioning for Stella Awards), its kinda easy to lose sight of what qualifies as true spiritual success! #ijs! Can the courageous church say, Amen 3x!

Didjakno? Spiritual success is not measured according to perfection, fear, fainting, failures nor even wanting to give up!

It’s not measured according to how many chapters you read a day, how many scriptures you memorize or quote, your church affiliation, the number of zero’s on your tithe check, your designer labels, your zip code, what you drive, your last name or how many titles/degrees you have in front or behind your name!

Believe it or not, it’s not indigenous to your melodious prayers, swarming soul-stirring testimonies, how high you jump, or how fast you run around the church!

According to our scripture reference, Joshua was suddenly confronted with an situation that on the surface seemed impossible to fulfill! Unbeknownst to him,  during the last 40 years, God had been preparing him to lead his people into the Promised Land. Having personally witnessed a myriad of miraculous events since leaving Egypt, Joshua had become quite content with undergirding the awemazing ministry of God’s Servant/Leader, Moses.  However, when Moses died, Joshua’s world was struck by the shocking realization that God was calling him from the background to the forefront!

It’s a whole lot easier to sit on the side lines and admire, envy, compare, murmur or complain about what others are doing or not doing! However, when God flips the script and the burden and  responsibility of leadership is shifted upon you, your perspective is abruptly altered. Joshua discovered that the past courageous feats on the battlefield were rewarding, nevertheless it did not exempt him from the inner -threatening-hauntings of self-doubt, fear of failure,  frustrations, rejection and do I have what it takes to get this done???

But God knowing Joshua’s heart, so graciously interrupted these taunting imaginations, assuring him,  “As I was with Moses, so I will be with you.” (Ref. Joshual 1:5)  Joshua learned that at the end of the day, his success was not dependent on his own strength, military skills or intellect, but rested solely upon his ability to take God at His Word!  If God be for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31 #DIDJACDAT?  Failure is not an option when your hope is anchored in God’s Presence and Promises!

In God’s Eyes, spiritual success is the culmination of maneuvering your thru the mine-fields of this life, maturing while mastering and maintaining the knowledge and power of being saved, sane and survive all at the same time!

WOW! THAT’S  SUCCESS–IN GOD’S SIGHT! Now, WHO OR WHAT’S BLOCKING U?

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
