ABOVE THE CIRCUMSTANCES!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

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

 

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 or Unsaved, huh?

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 comfort 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 Deceit, has proven himself quite adept in distracting our hearts away from what we know of God, derailing our commitment to trust to questioning, doubt, unbelief and ultimately dissipating our hope-filled confidence into pits of of desperation, fear and despair! 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 Power of God! God is Sovereign! Hence, your enemies can’t intrude into your life, except God allows! And the only way that He’ll permit the demons to invade your personal space, is to prove that His greater purpose excels far beyond your temporary pain and discomfort!

Therefore, Beloved, don’t believe everything you see! The enemy’s arsenal is flanked by confusion, isolation, intimidation and fear. #FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL! Chances are, it ain’t what it looks like! Besides, God has not given us a spirit of fear, but as Children of Light, we’ve inherited HOLY GHOST POWER, LOVE AND A SOUND MIND! (Ref. 1 Peter 4:12-14)

Regardless of what attempts to impede your trust and confident reliance on The Presence and Prominence of your Loving Heavenly Father, you cling steadfastly to what you’ve already experienced and sojourn safely through the murky rivers of Life! And even if, some water gets into your boat, keep in mind that your life is anchored in the Cleft of the Rock!

Faith in God’s Loving Care, gives us eternal assurance that whatever life assails against us, we can ride out the storms in quiet confidence that He Will NEVER LEAVE OR FORSAKE US! (Ref. Hebrews 13:5)

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

SELAH!

UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

 

UNDER CONSTRUCTION 2018.jpg

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SELAH!

THE FEAR FACTOR: COURAGEOUS TRUST!

THE FEAR FACTOR! COURAGEOUS TRUST

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee, for thou hast delivered my soul from death; …will, not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living? Psalm 56:3, 13

So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 NLT

 

According to the text above, we might as well expect to be attacked by the common enemy of our soul at any time, huh? Now, wipe that look off your face, I already know whatcha thinking! “OMG! That doesn’t sound like anything a Blood-Washed-Born-Again-Spirit-Filled-Saint-of-The-Most-High-God ought to be saying’, right? ‘After all, God has not given us a Spirit of Fear, our lives are hidden in Christ!’ You’re absolutely correct! However, Salvation doesn’t exempt us from experiencing tests, trials, tragedy or trauma! TRUTHBTOLD, according to the Apostle Pau,l we should not even consider it some strange phenomenon when uninvited trouble comes-a-knockin’ at our door! (Ref. 1 Peter 4:12)

Don’t shout me down nah! #ijs, Remember, we ain’t in Heaven yet! Even after we’ve confessed our faith in The Lord Jesus Christ, you can’t expect that Ol’ deceitful devil to wave a white flag, pat you on the back and throw you a retirement party! For lack of a better word, he is “committed” to tearing down The Kingdom of God, one soul at a time! Unfortunately, oftentimes Satan’s more truehearted than a lotta Saints!

Does this mean that the God’s people are defenseless? Absolutely, Positively NOT! Just as surely as there is an enemy determined to destroy our destiny, our hearts must take refuge in the reality that The True and Living God has sworn by Godself, that although the weapon may be formed against you, it shall not prosper because He Who created the hand, the bow and the arrow will always cause you to triumphant victoriously in Christ Jesus! (Ref. Isa. 54:17; 2 Corinthians 2:14) #Didjaheardat? #SERIOUSLY!

As a child of The Most High God, we have been Divinely anointed, appointed and authorized by the Lord of Hosts to annihilate the works of the devil. But you must remember, that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but spiritual! It is THE LIVING WORD OF THE LIVING GOD! When you speak God’s Word, it comes alive releasing the POWER to rebuke threats and pull down the strongholds of your enemies, unmercifully! If Satan is bold enough to raise his ugly head, because you are IN Christ, you have been empowered to step on his throat and cut off his head!

I must caution you to beware of one of the enemies most effective weapons that he assails against God’s elect in an attempt to diminish our Confidence, Trust and Hope in God is FEAR (FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL)! As soldiers in The Army of The Lord, you must stay on high alert, clothed in The Whole Armor of God, armed with the mindset of Christ, fully persuaded that “Greater Is He That Is Living In Me Than He Who’s In This World And by The GRACE of GOD, we shall overcome the wiles of the devil! (Ref. 1John 4:4, Ephesians 6:11)

Next, remember, fear flourishes in isolation! Therefore, it’s paramont for the successful conquest of every believer to endeavor to keep our consciousness anchored securely in The Revelation that we are never alone! Our God is Jehovah Shamah! Hence, He’s not coming, HE IS ALREADY HERE ready, willing and able to execute judgment on your behalf! (Heb. 13:5, Deut. 31:6)
Finally my Precious one, rest assured you and God make a majority! So, take a stand, dig in your heels, draw a line in the sand and with audaciously Holy Boldness proclaim, “COME WHAT MAY, I WILL TRUST IN THEE, MY GOD; NOW DEVIL, ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!”
The same God Who delivered your po’ soul from the clutches of eternal damnation, will He not deliver your feet from falling prey to those awaiting to conquer your hope as well?  #Shonuff!
As our steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by The Good Shepherd, we walk obediently in the path that God sets before us,  confident of this very thing! “Goodness and Mercy SHALL accompany me all the days of my life! And, EVEN as God allows me to I walk thru valleys overshadowed by death, my soul shall delight in the Light of His Loving Presence!”

 

YEP! THAT’S THE FEAR FACTOR OF A BELIEVER that SATAN  seems to  FORGETS and CERTAINLY WANTS U 2..COURAGEOUS TRUST!!

We recognize that GOD, being A FAITHFUL and Compassionate Savior, will never be without a witness in the Earth! WE continue to look to the hills, from whence our help comes as we go before HIS THRONE together! AMEN 3X!
IN TIMES LIKE THIS, WE NEED A SAVIOR! IN TIMES LIKE THIS, WE NEED AN ANCHOR! BE VERY SURE, BE VERY SURE, THAT YOUR ANCHOR HOLDS AND GRIPS THE SOLID ROCK! THAT ROCK IS JESUS, HE IS THE ONE! THAT ROCK IS JESUS, THE ONLY ONE! BE VERY SURE, BE VERY SURE THAT YOUR ANCHOR HOLDS AND GRIPS THE SOLID ROCK!  With our hands lifted up, and our mouths filled with praiz! With a heart of Thanksgiving, I WILL BLESS THEE, O LORD!
Heavenly Father, we come today, In Jesus Name! First thanking You for blessing us to see one more day. We recognize it’s only because of Your Kindness and Faithfulness that we’re able to embrace this opportunity and enjoy the abundance of your Mercy, your Grace, your Power and your Peace! We’re thankful that knowing our frame, Your Faithfulness and Compassionate Lovingkindness, continuous to allow You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to see and minister to every one of our needs! For this cause, we humbly bow declaring You are The True and Living God of our Salvation, our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision!

Precious Lord, we dare not take Your Grace for granted, therefore we 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!

As  this day unfolds before us, help us to maintain a new attitude and loads of gratitude, trusting You to keep us safe from every temptation and fear of intimidation, cast out the threat of hurt, harm and danger! Help us to be reflectors of Your Glory to encourage others to seek Your Face with hopeful confidence and assurance! Lord Jesus, clear our minds so that we can hear from You and cleanse our hearts that we may deny ourselves, trust and obey Your Will.

Sweet Jesus, as we look around this country and seeing how those in power are continuously promoting division and violence that threatens the very foundation of our democracy, we pray that You will shut the mouths of the deceptive manipulators, rebuke every Satanic-induced plot at the root, cut off the hand of every homegrown terrorist, hold back the flood waters of chaos and confusion, reprimand the winds of terror and trauma and arrest in The Holy Ghost every spirit of death and destruction! Send hope, love, healing, deliverance, correction and restoration wherever it’s needed! In Jesus Name!

Father,  help us to not whine, whimper and complain about things we have no control over and let us show our gratitude that things are as well as they are by faithfully adhering to Your Word with contentment! And when the pressures and burdens of this ungodly world closes in on us, quicken our hearts and minds to look Heavenward and cry out to The Author and Finisher of our faith, convinced that He Who keeps Israel is watching over us also! Help us to remember the example that our Lord has given us to follow as we slip away and find a quiet place to pour out our hearts to You, seeking refuge under The Shadow of Your Almight Hands! We know that Prayer is the best response when we’re pushed beyond our limited abilities. Give us the mind to bow before Our Heavenly High Priest, casting our cares upon the Only Wise God and Savior! Our hearts and comforted and our souls are calmed by the reality that even when we can’t find the words to pray, You are always listening to our hearts and interpret every moan, groan and sigh of our spirits!

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

We pray for Your children everywhere, for every family member and friend! We’re believing and decreeing that a Spirit of Peace, Unity, Love, Hope and Joy is being released in our homes, communities, nation and churches! We’re believing that Your Divine Favor is being poured out upon everyone who needs You and their faith is rising to a level that they shall be faithful and obedient to Your Word! We pray for those who have a mind to sacrifice their will on The Altar of Your Will, expecting that You will reward us with supernatural abundance in every area of their lives, In Jesus Name!

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

 

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

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!

 

Father, we’re lifting up our children, our grands and great-grand children by faith, committing them into Your care, realizing that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too; we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being ordered by Your eyes! Help us to be patient with them, remembering how generous You have been to us, fully persuaded that You will be as gracious to them also!

 

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher. Undergird them with Your Anointing and conviction to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Remember the Pastors who’re struggling with depression, resentment, frustrated by what seems to be failure, contemplating suicide, encurage their souls to remain steadfast, immovable, always abounding in Your Promises that they may continue trusting You to build their churches one soul at a time! 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.

 

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!

Heavenly Father, as You have instructed us, we pray for the leaders of our nation, corporate, judicial, education, financial institutions and our churches! We’re asking that You touch their minds and hearts; speak to them in dreams and visions letting them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! We believe that because their hearts are in Your Hands, they are being continuously opened to hear, heed 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, as we endeavor to look not at the temporary things but to the eternal, remind us that nothing happens except You allow it to train us to live each day solely depending on You! We thank Holy Spirit, 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 praises of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory!

We thank You for authorizing us with the Power to command every demonic spirit of restlessness, despondency hopelessness, fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness and disease, financial debt, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addiction, ungodly soul-ties, perversions, unnatural affections and insecurities to leave our presence now! We release a Divine Spirit of Comfort and Consolation into every heart that’s burdened with the pressures of this life, wearied with and grief, the widows, lift up the heads of the downcast and strengthen the feeble knees of all who have born the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through! Lord, give them sweet Peace! Lord, keep us as only You can!

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

Father, we know that our steps are being ordered byYou therefore, we are fully persuaded that becauseYou have committed Your Word towards us every believer who is struggling in their faith to hold on to Your Hand is suddenly receiving a Divine Intervention of Your Supernatural Power, Strength, Health, Encouragement, Provision, Prosperity and Protection and You are keeping us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully confident that Christ in Us Is The Hope of Glorraa!

Father we declare and decree that because we are more than conquers, every demonic-induced spirit of addiction and fear is defeated NOW because of Your Yoke Destroying, Burden Bearing Anointing that the Spirit of Love, Power a Sound-mind and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

Lord, while there are so many other things that we have yet to mention, we’re trusting that You are not just able, but You’re willing to do anything that we ask, according to You Perfect Will. We’re decreeing and believing You to fix it, Jesus, as only You can, in Jesus Name!

 

Abba Father, we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy! Father, we thank You and seal this Prayer In The Holy Ghost, for WE KNOW THAT IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X
Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES AND CARES ABOUT U2!

SELAH!

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)

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Good morning Precious Saints of The Most High God! GOTTA MOMENT! Incredible!

We so excited to have you join us today in our weekly Day of Corporate Fasting and Prayer. As we go before The Lord, please pray for the Saints everywhere! We understand that the enemy has launched a decree to destroy the Hope and Joy of God’s elect, particularly the next generation! But God says that the violent shall pursue, recover and conquer everything that God has given us. Our children are our gifts from God! The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but Mighty thru God for the pulling down strongholds.

MY HOPE IS BUILT ON NOTHING LESS, BUT JESUS BLOOD AND RIGHTEOUSNESS. I DARE NOT TRUST THE SWEETEST FRAME. BUT! HOLY LEAN ON JESUS NAME! On CHRIST, THE SOLID ROCK, I STAND, ALL OTHER GROUND IS SINKING SAND, ALL OTHER GROUND IS SINKING SAND! O, HOW I LOVE JESUS! O! HOW I LOVE JESUSSSSS, O, HOW I LOVE JESUS…BCUZ HE FIRST LOVED ME…WE’RE PRAYING, BELIEVING & DECREEING…

 

Abba Father, as we come before You today, In the Magnificent, All Powerful Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus, we’re determined to rejoice, praise and thank You for blessing us to see 1 more day! Looking back, we know that it was no goodness of our own but solelyYour Faithful Love that has allowed us to be here to see the beginning of a new day that we’ve never seen or experienced! Because of Your Benevolence, we thank You, Father for another opportunity to embrace the outpouring and abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace!

Father,  remembering, we bless You for the day that You opened our hearts enabling us to recognize and receive the saving Grace in the Life, Death, Burial and Resurrection of Your Son, Jesus! We acknowledge that because it pleased You, even though there was absolutely nothing in us lovable nor worthy of this honor and privilege, You called us to be Your very own children! Lord Jesus, we are eternally grateful that we’re here now only because You so purposed in Your Heart and by Your Own Hand!  And for this cause, we shall Bless Your Name at all times!

 

We’re thankful that even knowing our frame, Your Faithfulness and Compassion continuously provokesYou to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to see and minister to every one of our need! Therefore, we shall never fail to acknowledge You Alone as The True and Living God of our Salvation, our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision!

Once, again, Heavenly Father, out of the sincerity of our hearts, that are being continuously open to, depending and relying solely upon You, we’re prazing You for it is in You that we live, move and have our very being!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we lift up all those who lives are and have been affected by the catastrophic hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, fires, floods and mountain-moving physical and spiritual landslides! Hold back the flood waters, rebuke the winds and bind the hand of death and destruction! Send hope, healing, deliverance and restoration wherever it’s needed! Loose Your legions of ministering agents to meet the needs of Your people, releasing blessings and breakthroughs into their lives! Bind the Spirits of Death, Poverty and Defeat!  Lord, let them know that these things are signs that Your Word is being fulfilled in real-time, how precious and fragile life is, therefore we must all prepare our souls for Your soon coming return!  In Jesus Name! 

And because no man can come close to the Father except You draw them, we pray that as Your eyes go to and fro through this earth searching the hearts of mankind, You draw and save the lost, reclaim every back-slider and direct their footsteps to the community of believers where they will be welcomed in Love, encouraged, strengthen, and taught Your Word, Way and Will that they may be vessels of honor, reflecting Godliness in the midst of this dark, fallen desperately wicked world! ir local church home today. As we pray, we’re believing that many of our unsaved loved ones and friends will be saved before the end of 2018 and will join our Eternal Family! In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!
Abba Father, because we know that there’s no failure in You, we’re asking You to touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, high/low blood pressure, heart disease, bone disease, premature development, kidney/lung failure, Altism, HIV, HPV, Herpes, Sickle Cell Disease, Alzheimer, Dementia, Bi-Polar, arthritis and every other satanically induced spirit of mental perversion, depression/oppression/addiction! We’re believing You to rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake!  Lord, YOUR infallable WORD has decreed that we were healed by the wounds in Jesus’ side and by the stripes that Jesus bore on His back, we have been redeemed  from the curse and penalty of SIN! We’re yet standing on Your Eternal Authority as Creator and Ruler of the Ages, that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name!

Precious Lord, remember those who are grieving the loss of loved ones, those who’re experiencing broken marriages, financial lack, those rebellious children, those who are being victimized by domestic, physical, mental, sexual abused, those who are being overlooked, held down and even abused by racial/gender prejudice in the government, justice systems and the marketplace. We’re believing You to intervene on their behalf, exposing perpetrators, releasing miraculous Deliverances, Healing, Favor and Prosperity, unexpected promotions, opening up opportunities for entrepreneurship, book contracts, increasing education grants, lower interest mortgage rates, changing credit reports, canceling debts, establishing and overturning unfavorable medical prognosis and legal decisions to give us the victory that the world might know Who You are and what faith in God can do!

Lord, thank You for the testimonies that are going forth from every believer today, that as we stand beneath an Open Heaven and by faith holding on to Your Hand, You are releasing from the portals of The Throne Room, a double portion of Divine power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection. 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!

Lord, we’re believing You to preserve Your elect thru every tests that we go thru! Keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE, fully-confident that You shall bring everyone of us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed, possessing the rewards as You have promised in Your Word!

Heavenly Father, we lift up our political, social, judicial, business, religious leaders, trusting You to shake up their hearts that they might FEAR You  as King of kings and Lord of lords!! Grace them to be the holy humble servants and examples in their homes, marketplace, communities and churches that will cause those who are in their sphere of influence to love, trust and live everyday of life serving and glorifying You, Our Heavenly Father!

Abba Father, as You have taught us to speak life, we declare that You will cover our babies in daycare, our children in schools, colleges and universities, our families on their jobs, in nursing homes, hospitals, treatment centers, court rooms and prisons as they go out and come in and that nothing shall cut our lives short, but we shall live and not die  declaring the Wonderous Works of God! Thank You for the great things You have prepared for the people of God!

As 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!

Abba Father, we pray that every demonic-induced spirit of fear, failure, rejection, hopelessness and disappointment, doubt, confusion and anxiety be defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Clarity is being released now! 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! in Jesus Name!

Lord, we wait in confident quietness, trusting wholly that suddenly, every worker of iniquity is trembling and departing in shame and defeat, turning their backs and running away from Your people, knowing that inspite of their threats, You Are The Way Maker, Promise Keeper, Miracle Worker, The Light In The Darkness  has heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Father, we know that there’s so many other things that we could’ve, should’ve prayed for and about, however, because You are our Great High Priest, interceding on our behalf, You’re able to intercept and interpret every moan, groan and sigh coming from our spirits and fix it Jesus! 

In closing, we thank, honor and praise You NOW, BELIEVING that every request and supplication that has been set before you today…IT 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 SAVES AND CARES!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

GOOD MORNING BELOVED OF GOD! GOTTA MOMENT? AWESOME!

 

Once again we’re delighted that you’ve joined us in our Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Fasting and Prayers! We who have placed our confidence in The Saving Grace of The Lord Jesus Christ, are eternally grateful for each and every opportunity afforded to us to come before The Majestic Throne, finding Our Great High Priest to be A Very Present Help in the time of need! As we bow before our Maker, trusting Him to perfect every one of our concerns, we rejoice in His Wonder! Let’s enter in…

OOOH Sweet WONDER! OOOH, SWEET WONDER! JESUS, THE SON OF GOD! OOOHHH, SWEET WONDER! OOOOHHHH SSWEEETT WONDER! JESUS, THE SON OF GOD! JESUS! JESUS! JESUS! THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT THAT NAME! MASTER, SAVIOR! JESUS! LET HEAVEN AND EARTH PROCLAIM! KINGS AND KINGDOMS SHALL ALL PASS AWAY, BUT THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT THAT NAME! GOD OF HEAVEN, FEED ME ‘TIL I WANT NO MORE! HERE’S MY CUP! I LIFT IT UP, COME MAKE ME WHOLE…
Our Father and our God, we come today, lifting up The Name of Jesus! Lord, we bless You for The  Sacrificial Blood that You so freely shedding in our stead, which now allows us to come boldly into The Holy Presence of The Creator and Sustainer of all Life!  Today, we come lifting up holy hands and hope-filled hearts, praising and rejoicing in The Wonder of Your Glory! We thank You for so graciously awakening us to one more new day that You have made! We bless Your Name for life, health and strength! We thank You for a right mind, acknowledging that if it had not been for You keeping us even while we slept and slumbered in the night, our enemies would’ve destroyed us!

We know that nothing we’ve done or could do that was deserving of such Lovingkindness, but because of You are a Merciful God, You continue to look beyond our faults and faithfully minister to each and everyone of our needs! For this cause we bow in reverence of Your Awesomeness, praying that as You search our hearts and find anything that’s not pleasing in Your sight, please forgive us and take it out, and take it out by the root! Help us Holy Spirit to shew evil and to cling to righteousness that we might cause someone to see Jesus and inquire of Thee, “What must I do to be saved! In Jesus Name, we pray! Amen 3x!

We’re blessed knowing that it’s not Your Will that any man should perish, but that we’d all come to a Saving Knowledge of Jesus Christ. Because no man can come to The Father, except You draw them, we ask that You remember the lost today! Touch their stony hearts and transform it into hearts of flesh. Open the eyes of their understanding so that they will welcome a personal encounter with The Only Wise Savior who You sent to forgive and restore all those who have been ensnared by the sin nature of every unregenerated soul! Even as You did for us, snatch them out of Satan’s grip of deceit and let them see Your Glory in The Face of Jesus beckoning them to confess a “submitted SINCERE YES” to Your Will and Your Ways for humanity is Life Eternal in Your Presence!

Father, remember the backsliders who have allowed the lusts of this ungodly world to lure them back into those things which You delivered them from. Arrest them in The Holy Ghost and prick their hearts with a Spirit of Godly-Repentance that provokes their rebellious hearts to surrender confessing a “COMMITTED YES”, regretting ever having turned their backs from The Grace that they once enjoyed and come running back to The Safety of The Ark. Order their steps to the local church where they will be welcomed, loved, nurtured, encouraged and strengthen in Your Word and Ways that they might be witnesses of Light in the midst of this dark and untoward generation!

Father, we ask that You remember The Saints as we struggled to hold on to Your Promises amidst the choas, turmoil eminating from a people of unclean lips! Help us to remember that nothing happens except You allow it. Breath afresh The Wind of Your Glory into the spirits and souls of Your Elect that may have become wearied and wounded by the cares of this world. We are grateful that nothing is hidden from Your view, for You are Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent! We’re blessed that as Your Compassion draws nigh to those who are lonely, Your Strength is made perfect in our weakness, and Your Blood runs swiftly to the place where we hurt the most!

Father, help us to remember Your Covenant Keeping Power that when we grow weary in well-doing! Lift up every bowed down head today! Restore the Joy of Thy Salvation! Strengthen the feeble knees and send sweet Peace to those who are yet praying for the lost, heal and restore peace into the trouble homes, the marriages that are under fire, wayward disobedient children, those struggling with their finances, those who are being mistreated on their jobs, those who are tempted to give up and throw in the towel, those whose flesh is enduring the pressure of temptations to commit fornication and adultery, comfort those who are mourning the loss of loved ones, bless the precious babies in daycare, at babysitters, daycare providers, encourage the caregivers, those who are tormented by unprovoked threats, depression, rejections, addictions, insecurities and grief! Console the widows, those forgotten and downcast who have born the heat of the day and pushed and prayed us through! Lord, give them sweet Peace knowing that their labor is never in vain!

Lord, encourage all those who find it difficult to pray for those in authority but yet have a desire to deal righteously with the injustices of a world filled with institutionalized racial discrimination, corruption, arrogance, entitlement, nasty attitudes, greed, rage and hatred that’s intentionally inflicted upon those who are not like them and especially those of us who name the Name of Christ!

 

Abba Father, even as we’re praying, we’re believing You to intervene on our behalf, releasing miraculous Favor and Prosperity, unexpected promotions, opening up opportunities for entrepreneurship, increased education grants, lower interest mortgage rates, debt cancellations, book contracts and overturning legal decisions to give us the victory! Father, remember and keep us in Your Will that we might be examples to those who are looking for Hope in a hopeless, uncaring world!

 

Father, because You’ve sworn to be Faithful to generations of those who’ve placed our personal faith and trust in You, we’re lifting up our children, our grands and great-grand children and by faith we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives and cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we realize that You also have a plan and purpose for their lives! Therefore, we have the Blessed Assurance that their steps are being ordered by Your eyes and no weapon that’s formed against them shall prosper and every tongue that speaks against them is already condemned! 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!
Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher, Missionary, Deacon, auxiliary leader/member, choir director/member, praise team and musician, usher, nurse, driver, parking attendant and custodial worker! Undergird them with Your Anointing and conviction to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people and those who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and ministry,You have ordained!

 

Heavenly Father, according to Your WORD, we pray for the leaders of our nation, government, corporate, judicial, education, financial institutions, healthcare services and public service workers!  We’re asking that You touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in dreams and visions letting them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! We believe that because their hearts are in Your Hands, they are being continuously opened to hear and obey Your Will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Word as decreed that The government of this world shall rest upon Your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Father, we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of physical and mental sickness and disease! Rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake! Heavenly Father, 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!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we thank You for intervening in our lives and thru The Blood of Jesus we have become Curse-Breakers and Blessing Carriers! Therefore, by The Power invested in us, we rebuke every curse that has been assigned to our families, our relationships, our bodies, our homes, our community and our nation! Look on us now and uphold us with Your Free Spirit. Fill our hearts with Confident Hope-filled Assurance that while weeping may endure for a night, at Your Appointed Time we will be delivered and The Peace of God that passes all understanding shall be restored! We thank You Holy Spirit for directing our hearts into God’s Love and Christ’s Perseverance! In Jesus Name, Amen 3x!

Lord Jesus, as Your children await Your Salvation, in confidence and quietness,  we’re continue rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling, suddenly departing in shameful defeat, recognizing that You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Abba Father, we align our spirits, soul and body with Your Eternal Word! Because You have chosen us and brought us near to dwell safety and secure in House, we 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 as You Guide and Rule justly! Father, believing that IT IS DONE, In The Exalted Name of Jesus we offer up this prayer with a Holy Alleleujah! Amen 3X!

Beloved, every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LIVES, LOVES AND CARES 4 U 2!
SELAH!
