ACTIVATE THE GOD IN YOU

 

ACTIVATE THE GOD IN U

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27.

Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:13
Dual Citizenship! WOW! Living in this world yet at the same time recognizing that we’re aliens of another Kingdom, occupying this place in time as carriers of The Glory until the return of Jesus Christ, The King is absolutely-mind-blowingly-awemaazin, huh?

Sometimes, life comes at us so hard and so fast that we lose consciousness of the core of our faith—Truth—exposing our hearts to potentially being ripped betwixt two realities! Hence, the sacred confident heritage of the saints is often disrupted by the intrusive presence of aggravating adverse circumstances!

Now, don’t get it twisted! I’m not suggesting that we forget we’ve been called and chosen to be instruments of righteousness at The Lord’s bidding. Hopefully, most of us have long since gotten past that issue and believe with all our hearts that one day we will live eternally in Heaven with our Father. BUT! !!! It’s the meantime that keeps tripping us up! C’mon nah! Don’t look at me with that tone of voice! Y’all already know how our frail-flawed-fickle, self-centered-fleshy-nature keeps drawing us back to the ol’ days when we sat on The Throne of our hearts, making decisions and judgments according to what seemed right in our own minds! Can I getta real Amen?

Remember when that ol’ man had nothing to restrain us from focusing all our time, thoughts and energy on getting whatever we wanted, whenever we thought we needed? We were clueless that we were actually being used by rulers of darkness, hell bent on pulling us away from The Omnipresence, Omniscience, Omnipotence Creator and driving us head first into a sink hole of fear, discouragement, hopelessness and failure!

YEP! We were oblivious to the enemy’s wicked schemes strategically designed to entrap us; besieging our minds with his ticker-tape alerts forecasting the high probability of hurricane wind gusts, overcast skies of dread, gloom and doom! Unfortunately, far too many of us are completely unaware of Satan’s devices and actually come into agreement with him; setting the course for fulfillment of the very thing we fear! WOW! #Didjaheardat?

When we surrender to our fears, we give validity to them thereby proving Lucifer, The Father of Lies, to be a true prophet! That is until Holy Spirit quickens us our carnal minds and reminds us that when we accept The Saving Grace of Jesus Christ, we’re no longer obligated or enslaved to obey our former Task Master! When we come to ourselves, purposing our hearts to acknowledge The Greater One abiding in us, we have the power to slam the devil down to his rightful place (under our feet)!

Beloved, Trust2kno, when YOU truly believe GOD, you’re supernaturally empowered to over-rule the demonic influences and activate God’s spiritual weaponry that renders the Tormentor virtually helpless and hopelessly defeated! By commanding our minds to think of the Goodness of Jesus and all that He has done, continues to do and promises to do—the Joy of The Lord swells up in our hearts, illuminating our thoughts, erupting inevitable praise! Suddenly, The Glory of His Presence shows up filling our hearts and minds with a peace that passes all understanding! (Ref. 2 Corinthians 10:4 and Philippians 4:7)

Precious ones, the next time that lying devil tries to steal your hope, don’t fall for it, jus throw THE ROCK at him and THINK YOURSELF HAPPY WITH PRAISE!

Try this on for size, “devil, I will bless the LORD at ALL times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth!” (Ps. 34:1) Then pick up another ROCK and seal the victory!“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” (Ps. 16:11)

YEAH BABY, #ijs! Datz ACTIVATING THE GOD IN U! #BOOMUPSIDEURHEAD

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. Psalm 113:4

But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life. Fear not: for I am with thee:… Isaiah 43:1-5

 

Trying to find certainty admidst a world that’s permeated with uncertainty is becoming increasingly arduous today, huh? One thing for certain, two things for sure: Life happens fast and furious! Preparing for the unexpected is a challenge for any of us! Saved and Unsaved alike!

Yet as believers in The Lordship of Jesus Christ, we’re taught to do just that! The Word of God warns us that when faced with seemingly overwhelming circumstances, to resist panic and anxiety! How many times has your circumstantial evidence threatened to destroy all hope for recovering the calmness that we once enjoyed walking in the comforting Presence of God’s Favor? #bothhandsup!

Nevertheless, time and wisdom have trained us that Satan delights in using the sporadic turbulent winds and  upheaval waves of chaos, temptations and uncertainty to manipulate and vex the minds of unsuspecting sainted-souls of God’s elect.

 

From the beginning, The Master of Diabolic Deception, has proven himself quite adept in distracting our hearts away from what we know of God!  He suptly moves in derailing and transitioning our commitment to unwavering trust  into questioning, doubt, unbelief; ultimately dissipating our hope-filled confidence into pits of of desperation, fear and despair! Don’t shout me down nah?

While it sometimes appears as if Satan has been declared the victor, it behooves you to not fall for the ‘ookey-doke’, and never ever underestimate The Sovereign Power of God! 

Remember, your enemies can’t intrude into your life, except God allows! TRUST2KNO, the only reason  that He ever permits a demon to invade your personal space, is to prove that GOD’S Purpose excels far beyond your temporary pain and discomfort!

Granted, it’s not easy to deny what’s right before your eyes! However, the things you see with your natural vision does not necessarily negate the spiritual reality that there’s more with you than there is against you. According to God’s Word, what we see is temporal, but the unseen is ETERNAL!  The enemy’s arsenal is flanked by confusion, isolation, intimidation teeming in FEAR. #FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL! BUT, TAKE ANOTHER LOOK!  Chances are, it ain’t what it looks like!  GOD has equipped us with HOLY GHOST POWER, LOVE AND A SOUND MIND! (Ref. 1 Peter 4:12-14) (1 John 4:4)

While Satan’s plotting to impede your confident reliance on God’s Presence and Prominence, your Loving Heavenly Father has a Irrevokable Plan, guaranteed to lead and guide you safely through the murky rivers of this life to the shores of Heaven’s Glory!  EVEN IFsome water gets into your boat,  YOU WON’T DROWN because  your life is anchored in the Rock!

Beloved,  jus keep clinging to The Eternal Hope of God’s Word, fully persuaded by Grace that whatever befalls you, it can’t stop your destiny! Ride out the storms in quiet confidence knowing GOD GOTCHA! (Ref. Hebrews 13:5)

JESUS LIVED ABOVE THE CIRCUMSTANCES! SO, WHAT’S UP WITH U?

Consuming Fire, Sweet Perfume! Your Awesome Presence, fills this room! This is Holy ground…This is Holy ground…we bow down….

 
Our Father and our God of Heaven and Earth, once again, we come before You humbled by Your Loving-Kindness, Awemaazing Grace and Tender Mercy! We do not take it for granted as if we have earned the right to live, but we’re eternally grateful for one more opportunity to behold The Glory of Your Presence! We know that it’s Your Power and Strength that has kept us alive today! Because of You we live, move and have our being! With our hearts rejoicing, hands lifted up and our lips forever praizing and thanking 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! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!

Thank You for being our Salvation, Hope of Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision! Even being completely aware of the limitations of 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!  We’re blessed because You are a forgiving God, not only have You done so much for each of us, You keep right on blessing us over and over again!. Abba Father, we pray, “Forgive me this day for everything I’ve don, said or thought that was not pleasing to Your Heart. Help us to see and hate sin even as You do. Help us not to frustrate The Grace that You’ve so freely allotted to us. Assured that as we confss our sin, You are Faithful and Just to forgive, pardon and restore us back to rightful fellowship with You, we pray now for Your forgiveness, in The Precious Name of Jesus!”

Father, because You are Omniscient, Omnipresent,  and having walkd among us, allowing Your self to be tempted at all points as we are, You learned what we experience in these earthly tabernacles and can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities!

Sweet Jesus, we’re eternally grateful that You are our Great High Priest, 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 and Comfort! We thankya Lord, for being A Very Present Help!

Precious Lord, looking around this country 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! In Jesus Name!

Lord, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word, You know that sometimes, it’s difficult to over-ride the noise of the pestilence, the chaos of uncertainty and the the down-pull of pain 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, now seeking refuge in the midst of storms, peace in the midst of the waves and hope for the faithful 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, thank You for continuing to satisfy our souls, renew our strength, understanding and power as we yield the cares of our hearts to You! Because no man can come to the Father except you draw them, Father, we interceded on behalf of every unsaved soul, please quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their heart and in their mind that they will come confessing a “sincere YES” to Your Precious Gift of Grace and receive You as their Lord and Savior! We’re believing that You will direct their footsteps and place them and settle them into a church home where they will be loved, nurtured, encouraged and taught the Ways of Your Kingdom!

Abba Father, we ‘re trusting You to break up the fallow ground and put a “new committed YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider! Let today be the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR church determined to submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, learn to love and live their lives walking to please You First!

Father, we believe that as we’re praying, You are touching our brother, our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, strokes, heart attacks, kidney failure, liver disease, mental and emotional issues! We intercede on behalf of all those undergoing surgical procedures, those in recovery rooms. We’re praying for those who’re on life-support systems, not knowing that they’re even in this world! We’re declaring and decreeing that as we’re praying You’re walking through every ward, touching, healing, delivering, miraculously rebuking fatigue, mistakes, mishaps, misdiagnosis and premature death for Your Name Sake!

We plead the Blood of Jesus, declaring and decreeing 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!

Holy Spirit, intervene on our behalf to expose and rebuke the murdering spirit, the spirit of  doubt, unbelief, hesitation 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!
We bind every wicked scheme that the enemy desires to assail against us declaring that we are well able to take possession of every promises that You’ve made to us! We pray for total deliverance from every cord that would bind Your people and come against our God -ordained Destiny! We rebuke the enemies of our minds, thanking You that nothing can stop the blessings or us from performing the greater works You have assigned to the covenant saints! We thankya for the courage and patience to stand, steadfast, consistent, always abounding in the work of our LORD!
We pray for consoling strength for all who have lost loved ones, touch bodies, rebuke the demons of the minds, and emotions, disappointments, restore power, love and sound minds, hope and the JOY of Your Salvation. Help us to understand that because we are royal priests, a holy nation unto You, failure is not final and our victorious testimonies shall provoke envy of other nations who have not submitted to The True God but who yet serve false gods!
Sweet Holy Spirit, we bless You for The Spirit of Sonship that has raised us up calling us “MINE”! Therefore, as Children of The Light, empower us to rebuke venomous, hateful, words of racism because all flesh is of one BLOOD! We pray for the church to be The Church of The Bride of Christ! Strip us from every demonic influence! You have called us to be influencers in the midst of the lost and ungodly world. We pray for our enemies, 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! We pronounce blessing, joy, peace, favor upon all who trust You, as You prepare a table before our enemies!

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 You will cover 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!
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.

Heavenly Father, as instructed, we pray for the leaders of our nation, corporate, judicial, education, financial institutions, health care providers, prison systems, community service worker! Touch their minds and hearts; speak to them in dreams and visions letting them know that You Who sit enthroned above the heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! We believe that because their hearts are in your hands, they are being continuously opened to hear and obey your will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your word as decreed that the government of this world shall rest upon your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of kings and Lord of lords!

Abba, we ask that You encourage and comfort the souls of Your elect who are overwhelmed with fear, doubt and worry because of the things that are going on in our personal lives and in this ungodly world systems! Give us restful assurance that at the appointed time,You, will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word according to Your Riches in Glory!

Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of addiction, perversion 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 as we wait in confidence and quietness, we rejoice in hope, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, terrified 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, in closing, we stand in agreement with You 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 joy unto The One to Whom all men will come! We bow in obedient reverence before The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us that, You are making Your Ways and Salvation known among all nations for You Reign, Rule and Guide justly!

Holy Father, we thank You NOW, believing that it is done! 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 LOVES EVERYBODY!

DON'T DIE B4 U LIVE.jpg

The thief cometh not but to steal, to kill and to destroy; I AM come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.  John 10:10

Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:  To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory; Colossians 1:26-27

 

One of the most tragic phenomenon befalling humanity is leaving here without ever knowing and becoming the fearfully, wonder-filled, exceptionally-crafted Masterpiece our Creator intended before you were formed in your Mother’s womb. (Ref. Jeremiah 1:5)

Could that be why some say that the richest piece of real estate in any city is the cemetery? Don’t get melancholic on me! In fact my objective is quite the opposite; to spawn enticing hope-filled adventurous tomorrows!

We live in a society where conformity is the paramount attribute of success. If you want to be in you’ve got to fit the mold, otherwise you’re considered not one of us but part of the othersUnfortunately that leaves a whole lot of us outside of the clique, huh?

But here’s where I stand on such matters; who gave you the authority to authenticate what God has made in the first place? Only the creator of a thing has the right to determine its true value and potential! Hence, too many of us walk around, ignorant of self-identity, self-rejecting, convicted and/or condemned to a lifetime of regret-filled apologizing to others for who I AM!

That is until we come into the personal saving knowledge of Christ Jesus and get a revelation of who and Whose you are! This personal encounter with The Source and Sustainer of The Universe opens up gargantuan possibilities,  unimaginable potential and inconceivable prospectives that eyes have not seen neither have ears heard of!  

Why waste another moment of the precious time alloted to you being a copy of anybody or everybody else when God has distinguished you from every other individual born in the earth. Check your fingerprints?

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16

Locked up in you is the answer to someone’s question. You are designed to be the miracle that person’s waiting on! You are the gift of hope to some despondent soul! You are the treasure that one somebody’s been seeking for and was about to give up on, disgusted by a history of repetitious seconds and hand-me-downs! #Didjaheardat? 

Oh what liberating Truth erupts from our souls realizing that despite of what some folk may think or even said about you, in Christ, you have been empowered to stand-sure-footed in His Grace and profoundly proclaim, “I shall not allow anybody to deny me the right to be, become, have and do everything God ordained me 2 BE!  Because I belong to The King of Kings and The Lord of Lords,  I  can do all things through Christ Who Strengthens me! Therefore I CHOOSE LIFE!”

Beloved, TRUST2KNO, Absolutely Nobody, BUT GOD can make you who you are!  DON’T DIE B4 U LIVE! #GO4IT!

GOTTA MOMENT? GREAT GOD ALMIGHTY!

Once again, we invite you to join us at The Altar of Prayer. As we come into one accord, eternally grateful to Our Heavenly Father, Who has so graciously given us one more opportunity to entreat The Wonder of His Presence and Mercy through the privilege of Prayer! We approach Him with a Holy Boldness trusting that as we open our hearts towards Heaven, He is extending His Scepter towards us! Shall we pray?

JESUS, JESUS! THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT THAT NAME! MASTER, SAVIOR, JESUS! LET THE HEAVENS AND EARTH PROCLAIM! KINGS AND KINGDOMS SHALL ALL PASS AWAY! BUT THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR NAME! OH SWEET WONDER! OH SWEET WONDER! JESUS, THE SON OF GOD! OOOOHHHH SWEET WONDER! OOOOOOH SWEET WONDER, JESUS, THE SON OF GOD!
 

Precious Lord, once again we humbly come before You thanking You for allowing us one more new day of Mercy and Grace! For we know that it is nothing that we have, could or would’ve done that deserved such lovingkindness, but it’s only because of Your Sovereign Will that we live, move and have our very being! We dare not take any of Your blessings for granted! Therefore, we bless Your Name for watching over us last nite and waking us up this morning, saved, safe and clothed with a right mind to do those things that are pleasing in Your sight!  We understand that none of us have arrived at perfection, yet You have done so much  and keep on blessing us! Therefore,  Father, we ask You to forgive us for anything we have done, spoken or thought that was not pleasing to You. We have absolutely nothing to offer to suffice such mercy, but total reliance upon The Sacrificial Atonement of Your Son, Jesus Christ!

Abba Father, we bless You for keeping us safely tucked under Your Wings, from all hurt, harm and danger. As we start this day, give us an attitude of gratitude. Clear our minds and hearts from the clutter of this ungodly world, so that we can hear Your Voice leading, guiding and instructing us as we go out and come in! Help us to make the best of each moment to be be a witness reflecting The Glory of Your Light to this dark, lost and dying world!

Let us not whine and whimper over things we have no control over, but in everyting to give thanks for this is Your Will concerning us. We know that whatever happens, You’re able to turn it around for our highest good and Your Greatest Glory! As we continue to see sin through God’s eyes and acknowledge it as evil, when we sin, let us be quick to repent, and confess with our mouth any wrong doing, and receive the forgiveness of God that cleanses us from the guilt and shame of unrighteousness.
And when this world closes in on, draw us into Your shadow where we find a quiet space to seek Your Peace and Power. Give us the confidence to know that when we’re pushed beyond our limits and can’t seem to find the proper words to pray, You listen to our heart and interpret every moan and groan of our spirit.

Abba Father, continue to bless us that we may be a blessing to others. Keep us strong that we may help the weak.. Keep us uplifted, encouraging our souls that we may share words of encouragement to those who need comfort and assurance that You are with them also!

Sweet Jesus, we pray for those who are lost and can’t find their way. We pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood. As we pray for those who don’t know You intimately, we Bless Your Holy Name for that glorious day whenHoly Spirit opened our eyes, breaking up our fallow hearts, revealing Your Son, JESUS, allowing us to believe and trust HIM as The ONLY ETERNAL SAVIOR AND LORD! Knowing that no man can come to you, except You draw them, we ask that Holy Spirit prick the hearts of all those who have yet to acknowledge You as their personal Savior! Create in them a clean heart and renew in them a right spirit that they may confess a “sincere YES” to Your free gift of so great a Salvation!

Quicken the hearts of the backslidders who have drifted away from Your Will, convict them to cry out in Godly-repentance, “Father, forgive me, save me from myself and restore me back to the sheepfold!” Holy Spirit, You Who search the hearts and minds and know those who are sincere today retrieve their souls from the Kingdom of Darkness! Lead them to a local church home where they we be loved, nurtured, taught the Bread of Life, empower them thru the Baptism of Holy Spirit that they may live the rest of their lives, denying self and glorifying Your Name!

Precious Jesus, we know that only God changes people and things. We pray for all my sisters and brothers, for every family member in their households and all of their friends. We decree and declare peace, love, joy, wisdom and wholeness in their homes and into their lives! Father we’re believing that every one of Your children whose body is being attacked by all manner of sicknesses, disease, mental disorders, drug addictions are being healed at this very moment. For Your Word has decreed that You were wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities and by Your Stripes we were healed!

We’re decreeing that as Your people align their lives with Your Word, You shall  supply all of our needs according to Your Riches in Christ Jesus! As we intercede on behalf of our brothers and sisters, we’re believing that there’s an immediate release of miraculous Favor and Prosperity, unexpected promotions, opening up opportunities for entrepreneurship, increased education grants, lower interest mortgage rates, supernatural debt cancellations, book contracts and overturning legal decisions to giving Your people sudden victories! In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Lord, we’re believing You, our Source of everything that pertains to life and godliness, to preserve Your elect in the midst of every tests that we through! Father, we’re looking towards the hills from whence cometh all our help, crying out, “Send now help from Zion! 

Lord, we lift up every believer who is experiencing grief, emotional anxiety and weariness, those who have 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! As You remember our brothers and sisters whose lives have been ripped apart by fires and mudslides, storms, floods and earthquakes; both natural and spiritually, Father, keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE, fully-confident that You shall bring everyone of us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed, restored and recovering every reward as promised in Your Word!

We thank You for comforting and assuring us that regardless of who is seated in the oval office, congress or supreme court, YOU ARE ETERNALLY SEATED UPON THE CIRCLE OF THE EARTH AND ABSOLUTE POWER BELONGS TO YOU!

Therefore, in faithful obedience, we lift up the political, legislative, military, judicial, social service, business, religious leaders! Dear Jesus, we’re trusting You to visit them in the nite seasons with signs, visions and dreams touching the hearts of each one of them! Grace them to be the holy humble examples in their homes, marketplace, communities and churches and to this world that will cause those who are in their sphere of influence to repent, love, trust and live everyday of life serving and glorifying You, Our Heavenly Father!

Holy Spirit, as we pray, we’re believing that every demonic-induced spirit of fear, failure, rejection, hopelessness and disappointment be defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit Love, Joy, Peace, Power and a Sound Mind is being released now, in Jesus Name! We’re trusting that each morning Your children will awaken empowered with assuring grace to accomplish every assignment and sleep peacefully every nite, confident of earnest hope-filled tomorrows!

Lord, we wait in confident quietness, trusting wholly that suddenly, every worker of iniquity is trembling in fear, shame and defeat, running away from Your people, knowing that in spite of their threats, You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Father, in faith with exceeding joy, we submit this prayer to The King of Glory, honoring, thanking and praising You, BELIEVING that every request and supplication that has been set before You today… IS DONE! IN THE EXALTED NAME OF JESUS THE CHRIST! AMEN 3X!

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

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.  Oh, l  get it, 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! #ijs!!!

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. Could God possibly be 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 now 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.  Hence, He knows what’s up the road and we don’t!

TRUST2KNO, GOD’S NOT ONE TO BE IGNORED! HE’S — A CONSUMING FIRE!

SELAH!

GOD CONSCIOUSNESS!

GOD CONSCIOUSNESS 2

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:13

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil. Proverbs 3:5-7

 
Dual Citizenship! Living in this world while at the same time recognizing that we’re aliens of another Kingdom, occupying this place in time as carriers of The Glory until the return of Jesus Christ, The King is absolutely-mind-blowingly-awemaazin, huh?

But! Sometimes, life comes at us so hard and so fast that we lose consciousness of the core of our faith—Truth—and find our hearts being ripped betwixt two realities. That confident heritage of the saints, is often disrupted by the intrusive presence of aggravating adverse circumstances!

Now, don’t get it twisted! I’m not saying that we forget we’ve been called and chosen by God to be instruments of righteousness at His bidding. Hopefully, most of us have long since gotten past that issue. We believe with all our hearts that one day we will live eternally in Heaven with our Father. But!!! It’s the meantime that keeps tripping us up! Our frail-flawed-fickle, self-centered-fleshy-nature keeps drawing us back to the ol’ days when we sat on The Throne of our hearts, making decisions and judgments according to what seemed right in our own minds! Can I getta Amen?

Remember when that ol’ man had nothing to restrain us from focusing all our time, thoughts and energy on getting whatever we wanted, whenever we thought we needed? We were clueless that we were actually being used by rulers of darkness, hell bent on pulling us away from The Omnipresence, Omniscience, Omnipotence Creator and driving us head first into a sink hole of fear, discouragement, hopelessness and failure!

YEP! We were oblivious to the enemy’s wicked scheme to entrap us; besieging our minds with his ticker-tape alerts forecasting the high probability of hurricane wind gusts, overcast skies of dread, gloom and doom! Unfortunately, for too many of us, Satan’s so competent with his devices that if we’re not careful, we will come into agreement with him, setting the course for fulfillment of the very thing we fear! Hence, when we surrender to our fears, we give validity to them, and worse yet, proving him (The Father of Lies) to be a true prophet!

That is until  Holy Spirit quickens us, reminding us that we’re no longer obligated or enslaved by our former Task Master! When we come to ourselves, purpose in our hearts, settling our affections on things above and acknowledge The Greater One abiding in us, we slam the devil down to his rightful place (under our feet)! Dontchakno? When YOU believe GOD, the tormentor has no choice but to back up off of ya!

When we activate the spiritual weaponry of warfare that God has armed every believer by commanding our minds to think of the Goodness of Jesus and all that He has done, continues to do and promises to do—the Joy of The Lord swells up in our hearts, illuminating our thoughts, erupting inevitable praise!Suddenly, The Glory of His Presence shows up filling our hearts and minds with a peace that passes all understanding! (Ref. 2 Corinthians 10:4 and Philippians 4:7)

Beloved, the next time that lying devil tries to steal your hope, jus throw THE ROCK at him and JUST THINK YOURSELF HAPPY WITH PRAISE!

“But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.” Psalm 22:3! Then pick up another rock and seal the victory! “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” Psalm 16:11)

YEAH BABY, datz GOD CONSCIOUSNESS! #BOOMUPSIDEURHEAD
