PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

GOOD MORNING FAMILY! GOTTA MOMENT? GLORRRAAAA!

We’re delighted that you’ve joined us in our Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting! Those of us who recognize the honor, privilege and value of a habitual prayer life, look forward to each and every opportunity to run boldly before The Majestic Throne of God’s Grace and Mercy, assured that He is the One who beckons our hearts to Himself, where we can find hope and help to persevere us in the midst of life’s tests, trials and tragedy! Let us enter in…

 

Great is Thy Faithfulness, Great is Thy Faithfulness! Morning by morning, new mercies I see! All I have needed, Thy Hand has provided! GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS! GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS! GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS! LORD UNTO ME!

 

Father God, Creator, Ruler and Sustainer of Heaven and Earth, it is with exceeding joy that we come, hallowing Your Name, as the Only Wise God Who has so graciously bestowed upon us The Name that’s above every name that can be named, JESUS, our Redeeming Messiah, Savior and Eternal Lord!

As we bow, humbled by the Awesomeness and Wonder of Your Glory, we’re careful to acknowledge that it is in You that we live, move and have our very being. We are Eternally grateful that You have Sovereignly ordained that we were able to sleep safely through last night while the angelic host were encamped around our homes,  and You Who awakened us to enjoy the precious gift of one more day of life! Truly, we acknowledge that there’s nothing in and of ourselves that merits such generosity, but relying solely upon Your Faithful Loving Kindness, we rejoice crying out, “If it had not been for The Lord on my side, my enemies would’ve swallowed me up!”
Abba Father, as we embrace this day, we pray that You will lead us in the paths of Your Righteousness and guide us through the valleys overshadowed by death and darkness, keeping us, The Apple of Your Eye, constantly aware of You are Omnipresent, everywhere at the same time! As we abide under Your Hand, You rebuke the schemes of the wicked, command the defeat of our Adversary and help us to remember that Greater Is He Who is In US than he who is against us.
Sweet Holy Spirit, our Omniscient Comforter, being fully aware of the finite limitations of our frail, fickled and flawed frame, we ask that You intercede on our behalf with Grace to sustain us during those moments when our flesh is weakened by the cares of this ungodly world and  overwhelmed with fear, worry, doubt, unbelief and ensnared by the temptations of mortality! We pray that You touch and strengthen our hearts, empowering us to remain steadfast, immovable, fully confident and trusting that our times are in The Mighty Hand of The Master who controls the iron, the archer, the bow and the arrow, assuring us That NO WEAPON THAT’S FORMED AGAINST US SHALL PROSPER, AND EVERY TONGUE THAT RISES UP AGAINST US, IS ALREADY CONDEMNED!
We’re thankful that You’ve proven that Your Covenant Faithfulness and Compassion, allows You to look beyond our the  impurities, frailties, faults and iniquities of our humanity, seeing yet You continue to minister to all of our real need! Therefore, not willing to frustrate this underserved FAVOR, we ask now that You forgive us for everything that we’ve done, willfully and unwillfully that violates Your Holy and Righteous Commands. We ask this in Jesus Name, trusting WHOLLY in Your Promise that if we do this, You are Faithful and Just to forgive us and to cleanse us  from all unrighteous IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, restoring us to rightstanding as Your Beloved, Children of The Most High God!

FOR THIS CAUSE, we offer up sweet praise to You today, for renewed strength, understanding and power that comes from a heart open to, depending and relying only on You!  Because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we intercede on behalf of every unsaved soul,  asking You to prick and quicken their stony hearts and minds with The Spirit of Godly-repentance that allows them to come running to You today confessing “a SINCERE YES” to Your FREE Gift of Salvation thru GRACE and receive You as BOTH their personal Savior and LORD! We’re believing that You will direct their footsteps and placing and setting them in a local church home where they will be welcomed and embrace with love, encouraged, nurtured and delivered thru the preached WORD OF GOD!
Lord, we ask You to put a fresh “COMMITTED YES LORD!” in the heart and mind of every backslider and let today be the day that they come back to You and come back HOME to YOUR church, where they will learn to love and live the life that’s pleasing  to You First and Foremost, being willing to submit the rest of their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, denying the lust of their flesh, determined to walk daily to please and Glorify You to this lost, dark and dying world!!
Abba Father, because so many of our family and friends are being afflicted by all manner of sicknesses and diseases, we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister, bind, rebuke and cast out every dis-ease 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 pray for every one going thru a season of sorrow and grief, those who are being victimized by institutionalized racism, tormented by Spirits of fear, rejection, disappointment and failure, divorce, lost of employment, bankruptcy and unjust illegal incarcerations! We plead the Blood of Jesus over every demonic thought, spirits of anxiety, oppression, depression and confusion, because we know that You are not the author of these satanic thoughts and feelings, but You have given us who have put our personal trust in Your Son Jesus, Your Righteousness, a Spirit of Love, Peace, Joy and a Sound Mind!
Father, as we lift up our children, our grand and great grandchildren, by faith we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives, we cancel every evil scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we realize that You have a Plan and Purpose for their lives too and with the blessed assurance that their steps are being ordered by Your eyes, we  speak The LIFE AND PEACE of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies releasing a Spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!
Sweet Jesus, lifting up every spiritual leader, we ask that You encourage and strengthen all the Apostles, Bishops, Preachers, Evangelist, Teachers, Musicians, choir members, Liturgical dancers and especially the Shepherds who are yet standing on the wall, proclaiming Your Unadulterated Word under the convicting power and anointing of Holy Spirit! We’re rebuking spirits of discouragement, failure, competiveness, resentment, unworthiness and suicide. We’re praying and believing for the immediate manifestation of special signs, wonders and miraculous desires that You have placed into their hearts! Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace them to be the 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 You!
Eternal King, knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of all mankind, and as You have commanded, we’re praying that You have Mercy on our nation. We’re lifting up every secular, government/legislative/judicial,civic/corporate leader in authority over our nation and this world, we’re praying that You visit them in the night seasons with dreams and visions, warning them that The Eyes of the Lord roam to and fro throughout the land, searching the very intents of every man’s heart, make them aware of The Law of Retribution is in effect, therefore, He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment. He who digs a hole and scoops it out will fall into the pit he has made. The trouble he causes recoils on himself and his violent schemes will come down on his own head.
Precious Lord, we pray for every Believer whose faith is being sifted by the cares of this world, yet they’re struggling to hold on to Hope found inYour Word, trusting that this is the day that You release Divine Power, Supernatural Hope, Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection. Holy Father, we thank You for being our Shield and Buckler, we’re committing our lives to You, trusting You to preserve everyone of us thru the tests that You’ve ordained us to go thru,! Standing still, fully-confident that while our trouble has an expiration date but Your Power does NOT, we declare and decree that at Your appointed time, You will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with every reward as You have promised in Your Word.
Father, as we go throughout this day, we ask that The God of All Peace rest upon all who are oppressed, depressed, gripped by anxiety, fear and that Your Healing Wings cover the sick and afflicted, the hopeless, discouraged, comfort and console the caretakers! We pray that You bring understanding in the midst of confusion and extend Mercy to heal broken marriages and restore families. We declare and decree that we are more than conquers therefore, 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!
Abba Father, awaiting Your Salvation and Deliverance in confident quietness, we rejoice in hope, trusting wholly that You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications with Thanksgiving and have received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

 

Heavenly Father, we thank You for these blessing and favor and seal this Prayer In The Holy Ghost, for WE KNOW THAT IN THE PRECIOUS EXALTED NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, IT IS DONE; WE SAY AMEN 3X with a HOLY HALLELUJAHHH!
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!

GOD REMEMBERS!!!

GOD REMEMBERS2

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

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

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

 

In light of the prevailing gross darkness, devastation and desolation taking place in our world today, I was incited to review the words of God’s Prophet, Isaiah, speaking to the remnant of God’s Chosen nation.

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

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

Beloved, when life is out of your control, rest assured, Jesus is always in control! The Eternal Word testifies that you are the apple of His eye and He has tatooed your name in the palm of His Hands forever. (Ref. Psalm 17:8; Isa. 49:16)

In the midst of these unsettling times,  there’s no denying the myriad of distractions that are attempting to cause even the most seasoned of saints to question whether or not The Sovereign Creator and Sustainer of All Life is really concerned about what’s going on down here amongst the gross darkness of a lost, unfaithful and rebellious world,  nevertheless, I adjure you to keep your eyes on Jesus, The Joy of your Salvation and your feet steadfast on THE WORD! Be confident of this very thing, He that has begun a GOOD WORK IS FAITHFUL TO COMPLETE IT UNTIL THE DAY OF JESUS CHRIST! (Ref. Philippians 1:6)

Precious ones, when you can’t see no way, why not confuse hell and praiz JESUS anyhow! Don’tchaknow? At the mere mentioning of THE NAME OF JESUS demons tremble and the angelic host is put on alert!

Ooooh Yeah!  TRUST2KNO, The Great and Holy One of Israel is closer than ever before! Hence, don’t ever forget that YOUR GOD REMEMBERS!

RELEASE URSELF!

RELEASE URSELF

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus For good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should Walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

 

Okay, let me begin by saying, it’s not my intention to offend the sanctity of The Holy Writ, however to simply relay my personal internal experience!  Down the these 60 sumthin’ years, I’ve discovered that oftimes the process of life application is ‘easier said than done’!  #Understatement! Needless to say, transitioning this mindset to real-life tends to involve hauling along its own measure of self-accusing, doubt, ignominy and guilt. After all, we’re people of faith, right?

Fortunately, when we understand The Truth, that God Himself, fully aware of who and what we are capable (aka incapable of), has saved us, not because—but—in spite—of, we get a snapshot of impregnable fortress of our Heavenly Father’s Loving Kindness towards us, laced with a whopping dollop of reality!

Hence, armed with this intelligence, give yourself permission to get over you! News Flash! As difficult as it may be to latch onto, my Precious One, you are not the ‘good news’! JESUS Is!

None of us is saved by trusting in ourselves, but anyone can be saved by trusting in God’s Mercy! None of us can keep our selves saved through our own volition, however by trusting in God’s Grace we are sustained through His Sufficiency!

Ultimately, its placing your personal confidence in The Almighty God, realizing (as the Ol’ Skool Church Mothers’ sanng) “JESUS PAID IT ALL, ALL TO HIM I OWE, SIN HAD LEFT A CRIMSON STAIN, AND HE WASHED ME WHITE AS SNOW”, and accepting as Truth, that everything required to satisfy The Righteousness of God, Jesus already did it, releases us from the daily burden of ‘being good enough to deserve God’s goodness! Didjaheardat?

WOW! JESUS, Perfection Personified, got it all right for you!

Now that doesn’t mean we’re off the hook! Don’t be foolish; be grateful! Because of His Once-and-for-all Sacrificial Death,  no longer will we be judged according to our filthy righteousness but are now free to live hope-filled, holy, God-Honoring, God-Witnessing lives, reflecting the Light of God’s Glory to a dark, lost, and dying world! (Ref. John 10:10)

As we continue to walk with Jesus, entrusting our very lives to Him, our faith increases, our knowledge expands, and our experiences will teach us that trusting God is about releasing yourself from the futility of struggling to meet the unrealistic expectations of others, and most importantly, releasing yourself from devastating side effect of self-imposed exile, self -rejection!

If you are a bona-fied, Blood-Washed-Born-Again-Child of The Most High God, your life is hidden in Christ and you are kept by The Hands of The Almighty God! Remember, The Omnipotent, Omnscient, Omnipresent Creator of Heaven and Earth is always with you, working everything out in your life for your highest good and His GREATER GLORY! WHEWWWW! So, REST IN HIM  & RELEASE URSELF!  #GETIT?

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalm 139:14

 

One of the greatest discoveries in my life, is the emancipation from the bondage of being every “thing” and every “one” that everybody else expected me to be! Honestly, it was only after I got a personal revelation of my Creator that I was able to recognize and embrace WHO I am!

We live in a society where sameness is the rule and different is generally unacceptable. Not judging, jus an observation, k? We spend millions upon millions of cash, attempting to duplicate and imitate somebody else. If you can afford it, there’s somebody out there who can snip, slap it, fill it, tuck it, stretch it, shrink, sew it to look any way you want it. And as products of this amazing 21st Century Information Age, all worldly wisdom is simply a click away making ignorance a choice, rather an than inevitable malfunction.

Nevertheless, apparently, somewhere down the line, as children, we’re given subliminal messages that suggest we don’t quite measure up, as if Barbie is the epitome of beauty, Donald Trump is the litmus test for success and prosperity, Michael Jordon is the ultimate goal for the athletically inclined and Michael Jackson was World Renown Mr. Entertainment! And let’s not even mention the inked-up rock/rap artists that so many of our children admire and try to be like.

I remember a conversation with some ladies at the gym a while ago,  both of which were fair-skinned Black women. One of them looked at the other one and said, “You need to get some sun!” to which the other responded, “You ain’t that much darker than I am yourself.” I noticed a elderly Caucasian lady, glancing back at them and it hit me, why can’t we just be satisfied with what and who GOD made us.

Perhaps, it’s because, we don’t really know what GOD sees when He looks at us! GOD sees the most precious of all creation; a Masterpiece fashioned in His Image; His very own Handiwork; a Designer’s Original uniquely crafted, intentionally purposed, distinctively wonder-filled creature all for the Praise of HIS GLORY!

And as far as those personal peculiar idiosyncrasies, GOD’s already set your next appointment to come in and rub a little more of GODSELF off in you.

“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:” (Ref. Philippians 1:6)

NOW THAT YOU KNOW THE TRUTH, WORK that GRACE AND BE THE U GOD MADE!

AN ANEMIC CHURCH???

AN ANEMIC CHURCH 2

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the Kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His Blood, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13-14

Recently, I’ve come into contact with several people who undergo Dialysis treatment due to severe kidney failure. I am certainly not an expert in these matters, so humor me in my attempt to describe, in my acutely limited understanding, how dialysis works. Okay, here goes?

Apparently, the dialysis process involves draining the blood from the patient’s body thru a machine which filters out the impurities in the blood system and returns the clean blood back into the body. The number of the times the patient visits the dialysis center weekly varies according to the level of kidney dysfunction of the individual. While the benefits outweigh the risks of this procedure, there are potentially critical consequences of this process. One being anemia. One of the markers that the physician looks at to determine the stage of anemia is the ratio of white blood cells to red blood cells.

Prayerfully, none of you will ever suffer through anything like this, in the natural; yet it prompted me to look at its similarities spiritually. It’s becoming profoundly evident that The New millennium church is suffering from a severe case of spiritual anemic. Somewhere along the way, there has been a gradual drifting away and a markedly diminishing of the revelation, significance and the Power of The Blood of Jesus!

Consequently, the church is in dire need of a blood transfusion. The problem is most of the times this dis-ease goes virtually unnoticed and undiagnosed until we find ourselves sprawled out on a gurney in the ER (the Altar) depleted physically, emotionally, financially, relationally scrapped and spiritually bankrupt.

Oh yeah, some of us have become quite adept at putting on our ‘church-game-face’ and can actually manage to press on, for a good while, conquering one hurdle after another before draining all our strength. But inevitably, we get to that place where we’ve no other option but to come clean. ‘That’s it…I’m through…Kapoop…there’s absolute nothing left…I’ve tried to stop lying and cussin’, drinking and dopin’… I tried to handle this adulterous relationship…I’ve done all I can think of to keep this house/business/church afloat, keep these kids from going to jail…but now …I’m at my wits end.” And… That’s when we turn to Jesus, the True Source of All Strength and Power…The Master Physician!

You see the problem is, God never intended us to do it (LIFE) alone! That’s why He sent Jesus to restore the connection severed by Adam’s rebellion. The Blood of God’s Sacrificial Lamb flows from The Righteous to the unrighteous. As it is applied daily to our hearts, minds, our will through prayer and study of His Word, filtering into every area of our lives we are fortified and sanctified holy and acceptable to God!

The transforming Blood of Jesus purifies our sin-consciousness and empowers us to overcome all of this life’s maladies replenishing hope and healing to an anemic church and to a lost and unholy world.

THAT’S THE GOSPEL! NEED A BLOOD TRANSFUSION? #hookmeupLORD

SELAH Daily Devotions!

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. 2 Corinthians 10:3-6

 

As long as I can remember, our country has been involved in some type of warfare some place across this world. Whether it was an Executive Order Proclamation or a covert operation, there has never been a time, since The Garden of Eden, when a citizen of Earth could claim a state of World Peace. Sometimes, the motives for our nation’s involvement were clear and then there were those times when the intent was suspect! Wisdom teaches that the natural is often a replication of the spiritual!

You probably don’ really need to wait for a confirmation on CNN or MSNBC first to recognize this, however, let me state the obvious! Since you made a conscious commitment to seek God, you are now officially an enemy of the state! Hence, you have become the target of every demon commissioned by The Kingdom of Darkness!

It’s irrelevant whether you’ve been saved 40 years or just made a decision early this morning, you now have an arch enemy who’s three fold mission is to steal, kill and destroy! Simply put, he’s determined to take you out, permanently! (Ref. John 10:10)

I’ve heard that during the Viet Nam war, the soldiers were often ambushed because it was difficult for them to identify who was friend and who was foe. Unfortunately, the same is true in the lives of many undiscerning believers. Sometimes, it appears as if  your supervisor, or that person who keeps bucking up against you at every turn, or that person who keeps getting up in your face is your enemy. But don’t be deceived. This warfare is not fleshy. It goes a lot deeper than that, this is spiritual!

The real culprit, your true adversary, is none other than the devil himself,  Satan, aka  Prince of Darkness, Lucifer, Beelzebub,  Belial,  Accuser, god of this world and prince of the power of the air! Although Satan tries to hide himself and confuse you, He’s still a Liar and the Father of Lies! In fact, one of his other names is The Master of Deceit.

You might think that he’s come to steal your joy, peace and destroy your relationships, finances or your health, and HE WILL! But, Beloved, this diabolical Ruler of Demons‘  hatred goes a lot further than harming you, his real purpose in razing enough hell in your life to contaminate your confidence, escalate your doubts and terminate your trust in our Heavenly Father, The True King of Creation!

Satan has had untold eon-aeons to study mankind and unfortunately he’s become quite proficient in tormenting and terrorizing God’s chosen people. The Bible warns that Satan comes immediately to steal the Word—if he can get the WORD before it gets rooted into your heart, most likely his mission will successful!

NOW DON’T GET IT TWISTED! Satan is a created being, therefore he can’t do anything except The Lord allows AND GOD already knows that no weapon that’s formed against us shall prosper! In other words, the devil might have a loud roar but he’s on a lease and ain’t running nothing! GOD SOVEREIGNLY REIGNS ETERNALLY OVER ALL, AND HE SHALL NEVER RELINQUISH HIS THRONE NOR HIS GLORY TO ANY THING NOR ONE!

TRUST2KNOW! God has made available to those who love and rely on Him, The Divine Weapon of Mass Destruction! Hence, The WORD OF GOD! Remember what happened when the devil came slithering into the desert where Jesus had been fasting and praying 40 days and 40 nights? EXACTLY! Jesus whipped that lying devil using THE WORD OF GOD!   (Ref. Luke 4:1-13) And guess what? He intends for us to do the same thing!

The Psalmist, King David told us how to do it. “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. “ Psalm 119:11 Didjaheardat?

If you’re gonna survive and thrive in these evil days, you’re gonna have to take a stand.! And the only sure foundation in this world, is THE WORD OF GOD! (Ref. Hebrews 4:12)

In case you hadn’t noticed, Satan is not moved by your threats nor your tears, however he has NO choice but to bow to the Implicit Authority of The Word!

That’s why Biblical Illiteracy is no longer feasible, under any circumstance! Your duty as a soldier in The Army of The Lord is to BE ready, armed and dangerous, packing The Word! 

Therefore, your assignment, if you choose to accept this mission, is to get yourself in The Book and STAY THERE! #Didjaheardat?

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15

LEAVE THE REST 2 JESUS!

 

LEAVE THE REST2 JESUS 4

SELAH Daily Devotions!

“Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief” (Heb. 4:11)

 

There is a certain ‘place’ that every human, believer or unbeliever, inevitably seeks  to inhabit. However, you can’t locate in on Map Quest, Google or GPS. Amazingly, given all of the sophisticated technological advancement of our 2lst Century, it can’t be seen by telescope, satellite or heard by electronic ultra sonic sound systems. You can’t travel there walking, driving or riding in a bus, train, plane, rocket, cruise liner, submarine or battle ship!

Nevertheless, many a lifetime is spent meandering through days and nights pursuing it! Unfortunately, few ever get there. Some get closer than others, yet they’re left disappointed. For reasons unbeknownst to them, before they’re able to get a firm grasp, some way and some how, ‘it’ escapes to just beyond reach. Many have sought for it at the pinnacle of corporate, academia or entertainment world. Only to ascertain that despite the success, accolades, notoriety, wealth and privileges of the elite, there yet remains this insatiable unfulfilled inner-quest!

Where is this place that continues to evade so many a desperately wandering soul?

In case you haven’t figured it out, it’s called ‘REST’! And the reason so many fail to reach it, is because it is not a place but a person; and His Name is JESUS!

According to these Scriptures: “And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?” (Heb. 3:18)

“Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief” (Heb. 4:6)

Apparently, that which is impossible to man is always possible to God! (Ref. Matthew 19:26)

Didjaheardat? Amazingly, the very moment anyone places their ABSOLUTE trust in The Saving Grace of The Lord Jesus Christ, they have finally arrived, safe and sound, at their Destination—REST!

So do what you can. Pray about anything; trust God for everything and LEAVE THE REST TO JESUS! #GOTIT?? Aaawwwwmmmaaaazzzzzin!
