SELAH Devotions!

GM FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? HALLELUJAHHH!

Once again we thank you for joining with us in our Weekly Corporate Thursday’s Prayer and Fasting! We’re grateful that our Great High Priest has so graciously invited us to come boldly before His Majestic Throne to release our cares, finding relief, compassion and hope-filled restoration from all of life’s woes! Let’s enter in to His Gates with Thanksgiving and into His Court with praiz and bless His Holy Name…

God has always stood by my side; He has always been my guide! When my friends walk away and turn their back on me, You stood right by my side! Always (Always)! He never left me alone y’all (Always) He has always stood by my side! Whatever I need I just pray, ’cause I know the Lord will make a way! YES, HE STOOD RIGHT BY MY SIDE..LET THE CHURCH SAY YES! YESSSS! YYYEEESSSS…YES! YESSS; YYYEEESSSS LORD….

Eternal God, our Father! Awesome Creator, Ruler and Sustainer of The Heavens and The earth, we come before You now rejoicing in Your Loyal Loving-kindness and tender Mercy! We know that it was by no good of our own that You woke us to one more day, giving us the activities our limbs, a right mind and a heart to seek Your Face for all that we stand in need of this day! We thank You, Precious Father for watching over us as we slept unhindered by the evil forces lurking around us, resting solely upon Your Promise to never leave nor forsake us! We thank You for opening the eyes of our understanding, enabling us to see Your Glory in the Face of Your Son Jesus in whom we yet live, move and have our very being!

We delight in the honor bestowed upon us who profess faith in The ONLY Redeeming Blood of Jesus for forgiveness of all our sin; giving us access to such Amazing Grace and Heritage that’s allotted to us who have accepted this free Gift of Eternal Salvation! Now, unto Thee we lift up our souls, confident that as we continue to open up our hearts, minds, spirits, souls and bodies to Your Divine Will, Purpose and Process You will lead and guide us into all Truth that we might learn to trust You, with our whole hearts, obey You and follow Your instructions, delighting in Your Ways that The Light of Your Glory may be manifested thru us to a dark, lost and dying world!

We thank You Lord Jesus for being Faithful to Your Father, even to death on The Cross, opening up A WAY out of no way to convicted sinners such as I to be saved, cleansed and restored back to our Holy Father!

We thank You, Holy Spirit for breaking-up our stony rebellious sin lusting hearts causing us to be convinced that while we were born in sin, it was never The Father’s Will that any man perish but that all should come to repentance, but by yielding our entire lives over to the Mercy that’s been offered through the life, death, burial and Resurrected Lord of Life, our Messiah Jesus Christ we are saved from the penalty of sin and inherit ETERNAL LIFE.

Confident that no man can come to The Father except thru Jesus, we ask that You prick the hearts of those who’re yet blinded by the deceitful, diabolical devices of our common Adversary, Satan! Let today be the day that The Light of Glory pierces the darkness of their soul, giving way to The Only Hope of Salvation and Everlasting Light which causes them to cry out from a “sincere heart” “What must I do to be saved?” thereby they will confess with their mouths and belief in their hearts that You have heard their prayer and affirmed their “YES LORD!” and responded with Compassion, Grace and Mercy! We thank You for ordering their steps to the place that You’ve ordained in The Body of Christ where they shall be embraced with Love, Acceptance and Joy by their brothers and sisters in Christ to begin their new Life as Saints of the Most High God!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we are grateful that according to The Word, The Father is married to the backslider who has for whatever reason turned away from following, trusting and believing the teachings of Jesus Christ, giving heed to seducing spirits of deception and are now living outside of boundaries of The Covenant that Your Righteousness has established!

Lord, release a spirit of Godly-Repentance that cuts through their rebellious hearts, pulling down the enemy’s strongholds that are designed to keep them in bondage to the wickedness of sin-lusting fleshy deeds of darkness. Remind them that JESUS is The ONLY Acceptable Sacrifice for Atonement and that if they persist in rejecting Your Mercy they shall be judged accordingly and eternally separated from all that You have prepared for those who have been called and chosen to live freely, peaceful, strengthened and filled with Your Joy as a Holy Nation, Your Royal Priest in a Everlasting Kingdom with an Everlasting King!

Sweet Jesus, looking around at the evil ways that unregenerated man has conspired, twisted torn and extolled above all that You have set before us, help us to keep our eyes focused Heavenwards, and our hearts filled with Your Word that we might not become weary in well-doing but trusting filly that You know the way that we take! Cleanse our consciousness with Your Love and Faithfulness. Endow our hearts with anticipation and understanding that You will never allow the devil to put more on us than we’re able to bear, and if our burdens become too heavy for us, You have promised to always make a way for us to escape the snare of our enemies, finding shelter under You Mighty Wings!
Assure us that all of our help comes down from The Father of all Comfort, as we rely wholly upon Your Omnipresence, Omniscience and Omnipotence. When the tempest winds of life overwhelm us with fear, anxiety, stress, doubt, depression, opposition, remind us to quickly run to The Rock that is Higher than us and hide us in that secret cleft where we shall remain shielded safely under The Shadows of Your Almighty Providential Care!

Heavenly Father, while we continue to trust that nothing happens in our lives that can ever take You by surprise and continue to confess You were wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement for our Peace was upon You and BY YOUR STRIPES WE WERE HEALED, it seems as if we’re experiencing a tremendous increase of sickness and diseases even amongst Your children, unlike we’ve ever known! Abba Father, we ask You to touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, heart, kidney, lung disease, bone, prostrate, pancreas and colon disease, mental and emotional disorders and premature deaths, we ask that as You release Your Healing Mantle, rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake!

Because You are Alpha and Omega, even as You walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, limp, lame, the downcast and outcast,You’re Well Able to do the same right now and are raising them up from their beds of afflction as a testament to Your Name, Power and Glory!

Lord, remember our children, our grand/great-grands! We’re trusting Your Word to save us and our households! We know that while many of them are not walking with You wholly, we trust that You have an appointed time for their deliverance from the tempters destructive plans, plots, schemes and pits!

We know that the SAME MERCY AND PATIENCE that so generously allowed us to be here today is covering our legacy, protecting them from being victimized by the Satanic influences that are rampant in this world! We bind every enticing spirit that seeks to enslave them to ungodly soul ties that so easily beset this unsuspecting generation! We commit them into Your Hand, realizing that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too, with the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely-orchestrated by Your Eyes! We speak The Peace of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies, releasing Your Love, Holiness, Wholeness, Hope, Confidence and Excellence, equipping and inspiring them to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Lord, we pray for every one going thru a season of sorrow and grief, those being victimized by institutionalized racism, tormented by Spirits of fear, abandonment, loneliness, rejection, disappointment and failure, divorce, frustrated because of wayward children, unrealized expectations, lost of employment, bankruptcy and unjust illegal incarcerations! We plead the Blood of Jesus over every demonic thought, spirits of anxiety, oppression and confusion!You are not the author of these satanic thoughts and feelings, but You have given all who have put our personal trust in Your Son Jesus, Your Righteousness, a Spirit of Love, Peace, Joy and a Sound Mind!

Sweet Holy Spirit, remember every spiritual leader as we speak LIFE, STRENGTH, ENCOURAGEMENT, CONFIDENCE, ASSURANCE, RESTORATION OF HOPE-FILLED- ENTHUSIASTIC-ANTICIPATION and TRUST into all those who are yet believing for immediate manifestation of that special miracle and the fulfillment of every vision that You’ve placed into their hearts! We REBUKE AND COMMAND spirits of low-self esteem, self-doubt, failure, competitiveness, discouragement, disappointment, confusion, slothfulness, tiredness, weariness, being unappreciated and misunderstood, all those threatened by spirits of suicide MUST LEAVE NOW!
LORD, reward YOUR servant/leaders who are yet standing on the Wall proclaiming Your Word with POWER, under the Conviction and Anointing of Holy Spirit! Jesus, Grace them to be the FAITHFUL AND TRUE WITNESSES, remnant examples of Your Righteousness 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 and glorifying You!

Heavenly Father, as instructed, we stand in the gap on behalf of the leaders of our nation and the world! Those who’ve You allowed to lead in governments, corporate, legislate, judicial, financial, education, public safety and services and institutions! We ask You to touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in the midnight hours, give them dreams and visions that lets them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens see and know the intents and the deeds of everyone’s hearts and while they may think they’ve escaped the punishment of unbiased-bi-parasitism of man’s justice, they shall not be able to flee the righteous retribution levied by The Eternal Judge! Alert them that He Who Rules over the circle of the earth is keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!

Abba Father, by the power and anointing that You’ve placed upon every one who’s submitted their lives to You, as we stand in the gap today, we curse the SPIRIT of trauma, hatred, racism, evil, rape, incest, molestation, physical and emotional abuse, bullying, murder, suicide, infidelity, betrayal, abandonment, rejection, hopelessness, unworthiness, stress, insomnia, restlessness, confusion, bi-polar, schizophrenia, poverty and lack, double-minded, fear, anxiety and COMMAND IT TO GO RIGHT NOW!

We ask that You bless the brokenhearted, feeble in body and spirit, those desperate, despondent by grief and sorrow, the one at a crossroad of life, the ones addicted to harmful substances, our armed forces, policemen, fire and emergency rescue personnel, nurses, doctors, pastors and leaders, missionaries far and near! WE SPEAK LIFE, LOVE, LIGHT, SALVATION, DELIVERANCE, HEALTH AND HEALING, HOPE, WHOLENESS, RESTORATION, RIGHTEOUSNESS PEACE, UNITY AND JOY IN THE HOLY GHOST TO ALL WHO ARE READING THIS PRAYER IN THE NAME THAT’S ABOVE EVERY OTHER NAME THAT CAN BE NAME, JESUS, WE PRAY!

PRECIOUS LORD, we decree that every demonic-induced spirit is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now as we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope, 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 have received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Holy Father, because You have called and chosen us to dwell eternally 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 Will, Ways, Salvation and Deliverance known among all nations; for You Guide and Rule justly! We agree with You Who FORGIVES TRANSTRESSORS, HEARS AND ANSWERS PRAYERS and we stand believing according to Your perfect timing, it is done! We ask these favors In The Exalted Name of Jesus and seal this prayer shouting HOLY HALLELUJAH AND AMEN 3X !

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS IS ALIVE, HE STILL SAVES, HEALS, DELIVERS AND HE’S COMING BACK SOON!
SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Good Morning my Precious Bros. And Sistas! GOTTA MOMENT?

Didjaknowthat the only reason u r able to read this post is because Our Heavenly Father has blessed u to be alive one more day? And for that, please join us in exalting The Glorious Name of Jesus! As is our custom on Thursdays, we encourage you to join us in our weekly day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting between 6:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. 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 compassions fail not; as Thou hast beenThou 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!

 

Abba Father, today, it is with exceeding joy that we entreat Thy Seat of Mercy! Trusting confidently that You have afforded us this awesome honor and privilege not because we deserve it, but based solely on Your Loving-Kindness towards us, that draws us into Your All Emcompassing Presence. Sweet Jesus, we thankya for Your Faithful Obedience to please The Heart of The Father by sacrificing Your Life in our stead, that we might become Sons of The True and Living God! And for this cause, we bow in humble gratitude, fully aware that as we come before You, empty and void of anything that would warrant such awesome graciousness, but because Your Righteousness we are now the beneficiary of All that You are in the Eyes of God!

Jesus, we know that You already know everything about every single one of us, because You are Omnisient and Omnipresent, but because You walked among us, allowing Yourself to be tempted at all point as we are, You learned what we experience in these earthly tabernacles and can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! Therefore You, as our Great High Priest, are able to intercede on our behalf continuously searching and conveying the thoughts, intents, emotions and physical weaknesses that we’re often unable to articulate to The Father of All Grace, Compassion and Comfort! We thankya Lord, for being our Very Present Help! We ask that You hear our hearts confessing our sins, known and unknown,  that You will apply Your Blood over us, forgiving and cleansing us from all unrighteousness.

Lord, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word, sometimes, it’s difficult to over-ride the noises of the pestilences, 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 finding refuge, peace, restoration that You have prepared for any who would come to You in hope-filled assurance that You will never deny Your Word!

Heavenly Father, we bless You for continuing to renew our strength, understanding and power as we open our hearts to You, by depending and relying only on You. And as we humbly yield our entire being before You, we pray for those who have yet to receive The Saving Grace of Jesus, believing You to ignite a spirit of Godly-repentance that drives them to come today, surrendering their lives to You, confessing  out of their mouths “a sincere YES”  flowing from hearts that seeking a personal relationship with The Only Savior and Lord of Life

Sweet Holy Spirit, we ask You to put a “FRESH COMMITTED  YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider so that this will be their day to come back to You and come back to YOUR  local church that they may be accepted, restored, nurtured, encouraged and committed to live the rest of their lives according to Your Will and Ways.

Father, please touch our brother, touch our sister who has been afflicted by any sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, high blood pressure, low blood pressure and 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 envigorate, encourage and replenish the spirits, minds and bodies of those who are charged to care for their loved ones!

Lord, as always, we pray for every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, trusting that You will release Divine power, Supernatural strength, consolation, health, provision, prosperity and protection.

We pray also Father, that You preserve them thru the tests that they must go thru and keep them constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that at Your pre-determined appointed time, You shall bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word.

Father  God, we lift up every spiritual leader, asking an immediate manifestation of that special miracle for each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the conviction Power and Anointing of Holy Spirit. Continue to open doors and make straight the  paths before them; bind every spirit that’s been assigned to hinder them from fulfiling every vision and dream that You’ve placed in their hearts and minds! Send those to lift their arms, encourage and undergird them as they seek to be a blessing to those that You’ve charged them to shepherd!

Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to equip them by Your Grace to be the living 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 their lives serving You!

Father, once again, we come lifting up our children, our grandchildren and great-grand children! By faith we rebuke and cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! We’re committing them into Your Providential care, covered by The Blood of Jesus! We acknowledge that from their Mothers’ wombis, You have a plan and purpose for their lives; therefore, we have the Blessed Assurance that their steps  and stops are being ordered by Your eyes and they shall NOT DIE prematurely VUT THEY SHALL LIVE  A LONG LIFE to declare the wonderous works of The LORD!

Precious Lord, stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name with a fresh desire and passion 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!

As You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying for  President Trump and his family! Surround him with advisors and counselors who have a holy reverence and  can’t resist the directive and instructions of Holy Spirit!  We rebuke ungodly influence assigned over this region and we bind every transmission of evil, wicked and corrupt communication surrounding this nation, as we declare and decree that no weapon that is formed against this nation shall prosper.

Sweet Holy Spirit, endow the hearts of your people with a peace that surpasses all understanding and the confident expectation that because we’re citizens of Your Kingdom, regardless of the mass deceitfulness of this world, our times are in Your Hands and 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 enslave us to everything that which You have delivered us from.

Abba Father, help us to understand that salvation only comes to those who trust in the Name of Your First Begotten Son, Jesus ALONE as the Only Power to save us. Give us a sign of Your Goodness, that our enemies may see it and be put to shame. For You, O Lord who searches minds and hearts will continue to shield, help, comfort and saveYour servants whose hearts are upright before You.

Father, we believe that every demonic-induced spirit of temptation, addiction, 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! We declare and decree that all those who are pregnant with evil and conceives trouble shall give birth to disillusionment. Anyone who digs a hole and scoops it out shall fall into the pit he has made and the trouble he causes on others shall recoil on himself and every violent scheme that he devises against God’s Elect shall come down on his own head.

Father, we rejoice now in confidence and quietness, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in hopeless, helpless, shameful defeat, because 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 withold Your Mercy from us and Your Love and Your Truth is a wall around us!

Abba Father, we thank You for listening to our prayer and because You are listening, WE KNOW AND BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED THOSE THINGS, OFFERED BEFORE YOU, ACCORDING TO YOUR WILL! THEREFORE, we bow in holy reverence, honor and praise with Thanksgiving! For we trust and believe that it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen & Halleleujah 3X and It Is So!

BE ENCOURAGED!

SELAH DEVOTIONS!

 

For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the Lord abhorreth. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. Psalm 10:3-4
He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity. His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. Psalm 10:6-7

“Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee. ..These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes. Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.” Psalm 50:15-17, 21-23

 

I know that a lot of folk prefer to escape THE Truth in favor of the opinions of  the self-proclaimed ‘geniuses’ of this world’s culture, who ascribe to the more palatable theory of “no absolutes”! Nonetheless, the rest of us who have lived on both sides of The Cross, have concluded adamantly, “Let EVERY MAN BE A LIAR, AND GOD BE THE TRUTH! Okay,  as one of my favorite ol’ skool Preachers loves to say, “Nah, run down the aisle on dat!”

TRUTHBTOLD, everyday we’re faced with more and more evidence that the ideology of this present world is destined for a direct-hit collision with the reality that there is a SUPER BEING WHO IS, WAS AND WILL FOREVER BE in ABSOLUTE CONTROL OF THE COURSE OF THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE OF ALL OF HIS CREATION, INCLUDING HUMANITY! BELIEVETH THOU THIS? #ijs!!!!

While this truth is often disputed by those who favour the more liberating “I’m the Master of my own fate” persuasion, THERE YET REMAINS A REMNANT OF US WHO ARE FULLY PERSUADED THAT there will be no atheist in Hell!  #Don’t shout me down nah!!!

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. (Romans 1:21-22)

The arrogance of wickedness goes deeper than absolute unbelief! Rooted in the folly of his own imagination is the concept that God isn’t paying attention to what people are doing, therefore he’s getting away with every and anything his own evil heart desires! In other words, they foolishly assume that there ARE NO CONSEQUENCES 2 PAY! #WOW!

TRUST2KNO, nothing EVRRR catches GOD by surprise!The Ancient of Days watches patiently, examining and knowing the hearts of mankind, knows them that are HIS! God is not moved nor is He mocked by those who offer up lip service but have no intention of honoring His commands with faithful obedience!
However, those of us who yet cling to THE WORD, as if our very life depends upon HIM, have the Blessed Assurance that as we walk daily surrendering our hearts, minds and actions to the Righteous Commands of a Holy Heavenly Father, have an ETERNALHOPE that reaches far beyond this world!

When we find ourselves in the middle of trouble, we call upon Our Faithful Friend Who hears us and responds with Deliverance, Righteousness, Security, Peace, Fulfillment and Joy…GUARANTEEING VICTORY, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, FOR US AND GREATER GLORY FOR HIS NAME SAKE! #SERIOUSLY!

 
BUT FOR THE WICKED, WHO CHOOSE 2 FORGET GOD OR CHANGE HIS UNCORRUPTABLE GLORY 2 REFLECT THE IMAGE OF CORRUPTABLE MAN , IT IS NOT SO! HE REBUKES THEM AND LAUGHS AT THEIR DESTRUCTION! “but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he sees that his day is coming. (Psalm 37:13)

I know ‘it ain’t none of my business’, U gotta right to live anyway U wanna, right? #ijs…THERE ARE BENEFITS 4 OBEDIENCE! #ETERNAL LIFE! #NOW&LATER!

SELAH!

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!

We thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to sacrafice His Life that we might have an opportunity to live for and eternally with You! 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 the richness of Your Lovingkiness and enjoy the unsearchable depth of Your Peace!

Heavenly Father, it is with unspeakable joy that we Thank You for being God of our Salvation, Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision. With heartfelt humility and sincere gratitude, we acknowledge The Favor, Compassion and Faithfulness that continuously allows You, knowing our frame, BUT yet look beyond our human frailties, faults, failures and iniquities and minister to all of our need!

Lord, we stand humbly before Your Sovereignty, asking you to forgive us for everything that we, your children, have spoken, done and thought that was not pleasing in Your sight.We ask Holy Spirit, to intercede on our behalf, our family, our friends, even our enemies.

We thank You now because You have assured us that if we would confess our sins, You, Heavenly being Faithful and Just will forgive us, and wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, cleansing us from all unrighteousness, and restoring every breach that our disobedience has caused between our poor souls and our Lord and Savior, Jesus!

Father, we bless You for allowing us to boldly enter into Your Throne Room, confident that you will entreat us graciously as we pour out the burdens that seem to overwhelm our hearts, releasing everything that concerns us. Lord Jesus, we know that You are Omniscient, Omnipresent, You see and You already know everything about everyone of us, yet You have invited us to come to You, for comfort and strength as You encourage us to hold on to every Word that You have spoken over our lives, before we were born.

From a heart open, depending and relying only on You, we offer up sweet precious praise toYou today, for renewed strength,understanding and power as we reverance You as our personal Savior and Lord.

Daddy, we must acknowledge that because no man can come to the Father except you draw them, we ask Holy Spirit, to intercede on our behalf, our family, our friends, even our enemies and pray that as Your eyes continue to search the hearts of mankind that You draw and save the lost! Quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their hearts and in their minds that they will come to you today and confess a “sincere Yes” to your Grace Gift, believing and receiving You as their personal Savior and Lord!

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

Heavenly Father, we pray that you will touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all physical, mental, spiritual sickness and diseases, we plead The Blood of Jesus against the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, heart conditions, high/low blood pressures, depression, demonic-induced oppressions of temptations, doubts, addictions, learning disabilities, low self esteem, and failure , and we rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake, Amen 3x! Lord, according to Your Word declaring that your stripes have redeemed and healed us we’re yet standing firmly on Your promise that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name!

Lord, we pray for every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, we’re trusting that You are releasing Divine Power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection. We’re praying also Father, that You will preserve them thru the tests that they must go thru and keep them constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE, fully-confident that at Your designated time, You will bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word.

Give us to know that because we belong to You, we are never too far that You can’t see us or  reach us! We’re so grateful that You are forever shielding us from anything that the devil would rail against us. Help us to understand that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower, and the righteous who run into it and are saved.

Dear Lord, open up our minds and our hearts, filling us with Your Assurance, and confidence that at The Name of Jesus, every knee must bow and every tongue confess that You are Lord! Grace your children with hope-filled trust that You, Father have committed Your Word towards us that no weapon that’s formed us shall ever prosper and except You allow it, no trouble, test or trial can come near us.

Father, we thank You, for fully persuading us of Your Providential Presence and Power to turn everything around to work in our favor and to bring about exuberant testimonies and praizes of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory!

Father we decree that every Satanic-induced spirit of fear and death is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power, Sound-mindness and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

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

Heavenly Father, we thank You now, believing that IT IS WELL! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen and It Is So!

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

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

 Understand, then, that it is not because of your righteous that the Lord your God is giving you this good land, for you are a stiff-necked people. Deuteronomy 9:6

And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; Philippians 3:9-10
 

Are you proud of yourself! Come on now; how many of us have, consciously or unconsciously, given ourselves a slight pat on the back or an inward nod because we did something better or knew more about something  that no one else in our sphere of influence knew?  Exactly!  Of course I’m not suggesting that we venture off to the other end of the spectrum and fall into self-debasement or self-loathing.  I’m simply noting how easily the line between arrogance and self esteem can become blurred!
 
Taking pride in our successful accomplishments has its place in our lives.  However when we over-compensate ourselves for what we’ve managed to attain to the point that we levitate through life as if our ‘performance’ gives us an edge above everyone else,  WATCHOUT! You’re  headed down a slippery ledge to destruction! (Ref. Proverb 16:18)  
 
Sometimes even Christians find themselves ominously near the vicinity of Pharisee Blvd and Straight Street, when it comes to Righteousness. (Ref. Matthew 5:20)  When our righteousness is based on our performance, we’ve missed it by miles! If we’re relying upon our good works to qualify us for a automatic ticket to Heaven, boy are we ever deceiving ourselves! When we equate our holiness according to the world’s standards, we’re sho nuff trippin’!  So what hope do we have of reaching the lofty Pentacle of Acceptability to GOD?
 
Have I got some good news for you! There is a way to receive God’s Righteousness and it doesn’t involve anything that YOU can do on your own.  It’s called Grace! Grace is God’s free Gift to us, something that we could never earn or merit—a right-standing with a Holy God!
 
God’s Righteousness is based solely upon personal acceptance, through faith in the finished works of Christ Jesus!  The scripture says, ‘For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
 
There is a well-spring of exhilarating freedom in just taking God at His Word; knowing that you ain’t right, BUT…JESUS IS!

After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), ‘I thirst.’ A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, ‘It is finished,’ and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit,” (John 19:28-30)

 

From early morning broadcasts GM America, until Late Nite News we’re constantly inundated with media blitz to keep us abreast of local and world-wide current events as they unfold throughout the course of the day! Unfortunately, barring a brief human interest segment, generally most of what is considered news-worthy reporting generally involves someone’s personal tragedy, layered by an unusually catastrophic event, sandwiched between a hefty dosage of robberies, murders, kidnappings, and embezzlement scams etc. Apparently, tragedy boosts ratings. I reckon that’s why the majority of so-called news is all bad!

I was impressed by the Spirit of God to get this urgent message out immediately to every believing soul struggling with a situation that seems impossible! There is Good News! And while it may not survive the final cut of an editing room floor, let me assure you it’s indeed something to phone, text, Instagram, IM, snap chat, fb, linkedin, tweet or by any means necessary to get The Word out!

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The devil ain’t running nothing!

Over 2000 years ago, The Son of God, Jesus Christ, dealt Satan the ultimate death crushing blow, as He hung crucified on an Old Rugged Cross atop a hill called Calvary!

History records Jesus dying words,‘IT IS FINISHED’! Following The Holy Lamb of God’s unjustifiably humiliating ghastly agonizing execution where He surrendered to Death, Jesus yet Lives! Having miraculously risen from the Grave, Jesus told His disciples, “All Power in heaven and in the Earth has been given to me! (Matthew 28:18) “I have overcome the world, and in me, you are over comers!” ( John 16:33) And because of this one man’s atoning death, LIFE has come to anyone who dares to trust in Jesus Redemptive Power!(Ref. Romans 5:19)

Upon our Lord’s Resurrection, any victory that Satan once held over death and the grave was snatch un-mercifully away from him, eternally triumphantly trampling over all powers, principalities, and all wickedness in High Places. And the records decree how God has placed all things under his dominion and if ye be Christ’s then all things are under your feet also! (Ref. 1 Corinthians 15:55-57)
 
Seriously! The Immutable Word of God still stands firm! We are more than conquers through Christ, and the devil is still a desperate defeated liar!

SO WHATEVER STATICS THE INTIMIDATOR IS USING TO THREATEN YOUR PEACE AND DESTROY YOUR JOY  AND DIMINISH YOUR CONFIDENCE IN GOD, DON’T EVEN SWEAT IT! JESUS ALREADY HANDLED IT AND SATAN TOO! WE ALREADY HAVE THE VICTORY BECAUSE JESUS LIVES!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!”
