Just another day, that The Lord has kept me! Just another day, that The Lord has kept me! He has kept me from all evil, with my mind stayed on JESUS! Just another day….that….The Lord….Has kept me!  He’s a WONDER, in my soul, He’s a WONDER, in my soul, He’s a WONDER, IN MY SOUL, BLESS HIS NAME! HE’S A WONDER, IN MY SOUL…HE’S A WONDER, IN MY SOUL, HE’S A WONDER, IN MY SOUL…BLLLLEEEEESSSSSS, BLESSSSS, BLESS HIS NAME! Let’s pray…
Abba Father and The Almighty GOD, as we bow our heads and our hearts, we give honor to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ thanking You for the privilege that’s so graciously afforded us to enter into Your Throne Room finding Mercy and Grace to help in the time of need! Confident that You welcome us, we rejoice earnestly expecting that You are indeed listening to our prayers!
Heavenly Father, we thank You for our being able to see, and to hear, to speak, to feel, and to taste of Your Goodness today and every day! We’re blessed because You, being Holy and Righteous, continue to be such a Loving, Forgiving GOD, and such an Understanding and Caring Father. You’ve already done so much for us, inspite of us… You keep on blessing us. Precious Lord forgive us this day for everything we have done, or said or thought that was not pleasing to You. Abba Father, we are sincerely sorry and humbly repent, asking for Your forgiveness trusting in Your Promise that You are Faithful and Just to forgive us, cleanse us in The Precious Blood of Jesus and restore our rightstanding as Your own children!

Sweet Jesus, we’re eternally grateful that because, knowing our fickled frame, Your Faithful Compassion yet allows You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to see and minister to every one of our needs!

We pray that as You receive our petitions, from hearts open to, depending and relying only on You,  that Your outstretched Hand will touch us, renewing our strength, understanding and power to do those things that please You!

As Your eyes continuously search the hearts of mankind , save the unsaved, put a sincere YES in their heart and in their mind that they will come to You  asking and receiving You as their personal Lord and Savior! Lord Jesus, reclaim every back-slider, that has for whatever reason walked away from You. Stir up a Spirit of Righteousness in their compromised hearts that provokes them to declare a truly ‘dedicated and committed YES LORD!’  Order their steps and guide them to a local church home; place and settle them where they can be welcomed, loved, nurtured, empowered and encouraged to live out the rest of their lives exemplifying Your Grace and Glory in the midst of the depraved darkness of this world! In Jesus Name, Amen 3x!

Father, by faith, we commit our children, our grandchildren and greatgrand- children into Your Providential Care! Lord, we realize that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too,  we have the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are yet being orchestrated by You! Therefore, as we lift them up before Your All-Seeing Eyes, we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds, souls and bodies, canceling every satanic plot, shutting down every portal that seeks to seduce, intice and entrap them by ungodly soul ties! We declare and decree that they shall live a full and long life as You’re release a Spirit of Life, Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God-Ordained Destiny, in Jesus Name It is so!

We speak total deliverance from every cord that would bind Your people and come against our God ordained destiny! We rebuke the enemies of our minds and thank You that nothing can stop the blessings or us from performing the GREATER WORKS You have assigned to Your Covenant Saints as You continue to strengthen and renew the Covenant of Faith! We Thankya for the courage and patience to stand, steadfast, consistent, always abounding in the work of our LORD, in Jesus Name!

We pray for strength for all who have lost loved ones, touch bodies,  touch hearts, minds, and emotions, rebuke grief and disappointment, restore the POWER and sound minds, hope and joy of our Salvation. Precious Lord, as we lift up broken marriages and other relationshps, we’re believing that You are uprooting every trace of selfishness, bitterness and resentment, vengence and unforgiveness, unfaithfulness and restoring the love that they once held for one another when they made their vows before You, their family and friends!  Prick their hearts with renewed consecrated commitment to love their spouses even as You’ve loved Your Church.  We speak healing of every wound, cast down every rebellious spirit, intervene and restore Divine Alignment in their families, homes, communities and churches!

Sweet Holy Spirit, help us to understand that failure is not final because we are Royal Priests and a Holy Nation unto You! We provoke envy of other nations who have not submitted to The True and Living GOD but who yet serve false gods! We decree and declare that You have raised us up and called us ‘MINE’! We rebuke venomous, hateful, words of racism, the Spirit of ungodly self-righteous elite, because all flesh is of one blood!

Father, we’re asking You to touch our brother, touch our sister whose bodies has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, high/low blood pressure, heart disease, kidney, lung failure, satanically induced depression/oppression/addictions and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake! Lord, YOUR infallable WORD has decreed that the stripes that Jesus bore on His back has already redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on Your Eternal Authority as Creator and Ruler of the Agesthat the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name!

Lord, remember all those who are being overlooked, held down and even abused by social, economic, gender, ethnic and racial prejudice in this immoral world. Intervene on our behalf releasing miraculous Favor and Prosperity, unexpected promotions, opening up opportunities for entrepreneurship, increased education grants,  new homes, lower interest mortgage rates, debt cancellations, book contracts and overturning legal decisions that unjustly confine us to biased judicial systems and give us the victory!

Continue to open the eyes of our understanding so that Your people are not easily deceived and ensnared by the lust for the riches of this world but give Your People a hunger and thirst for Righteousness that causes them to seek those things which will Glorify Your Name in the earth even as it is in Heaven!  

Knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind and absolutely nothings happens in this earth that takes You by surprise, we ask that You  give us Your Peace that passes all understanding. While we may not know what tomorrow will bring, we take comfort, trusting in Your Word that You will never leave us nor forsake us! We praise and thank You for being Our Everlasting Father and King!

We lift up every spiritual leader, asking a special miracle for each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit. Father, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace them to be the examples in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love, trust wholly in and live their lives serving You!

Abba Father, as You’ve instructed, we pray especially for the leaders of our nation and around the world. We lift up every coporate, judicial, education and financial institution, health care providers and facility worker, we lift up the prison systems and public and community service workers. We ask that you touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in dreams and visiions letting them know that You Who sit enthroned above The Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s hand and hearts and that they will be rewarded accordingly!  We believe that because their hearts are in Your Mighty Hands, they are continuously being opened to hear and obey Your Will. We’re standing and trusting Your Word that Decrees that The Government of this World shall rest upon Your Shoulders and that You are The Eterna King of kings and Lord of lords!In Jesus Name! Amen 3x! 

Lord, we pray for every believer who is clinging on to Your Hand, by faith today,  that You will preserve us thru the challenging days ahead, and bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised as our inheritance according to Your Word.

Abba Father,  we declare and decree that every demonic-induced spirit of fear, failure, rejection, hopelessness and disappointment is defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Soundness of mind is being released now, in Jesus Name! 

Father, we rejoice now in confidence and quietness, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayers as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

We’re trusting that each morning Your children will awaken empowered with Assuring Grace to accomplish every assignment and as they lay down, they shall rest peacefully every nite, confident of earnest hope-filled tomorrows!

Father, because we know that You are our FAITHFUL AND GREAT HIGH PRIEST, WAY MAKER, MIRACLE MAKER and PROMISE KEEPER, we thank, honor and praise You NOW, BELIEVING that every spoken and unspoken request and supplication that has been offered up before You today…shall be fulfilled at Your Divinely-Appointed time! We close this prayer with A HOLY HALLELUJAH, 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 DOES CARE!

SELAH!

IS GOD FAIR???

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: Romans 1:21-26a

 

Okay! Don’t be looking at me with that tone of voice! Even if we were too sccaarred to speak it out loud, chances are, we’ve all thought about it at some point in our lives, huh?

Particularly, when circumstances didn’t flow in the natural order of progression according to our personal logic! That’s when we tend to get all philosophical and put God on the witness stand! “Why would a Loving God send people to Hell? Why do innocent babies die? Why do bad things happen to good people?” Unfortunately, as Bro. Job can attest to, except thru Holy Spirits’ impartation of revelation, we’re fundamentally incapable of assessing the Ways and Means of our Sovereign Lord’s Infinite Wisdom and Knowledge. (Ref. Job 42:3-5) Am I right about it?

Amazingly, The Sustainer of everything, knowing the hopelessness of relying on the innate frailty of our flawed, fickled, self-centered frame, so graciously restrains Godself with compassionate patience, suffering with us through The Divine Maturation Process, until we arrive at the unity of faith implied by trusting in The Son of God! (Ref. Ephesians 4:13)

Howeverrrrr, Truth be told, this type of interrogation is generally  a direct result of a deliberate, self-induced distortion, rebellion and ultimate rejection of God’s Perfect Morality in order to justify our unmoral proclivity to satisfy the our own fleshy lust for wickedness and evil-doing! WELL? #Didjaheardat? Like the ol’ skool preacha said, “I jus lost 1/2 my church!”

According to Scriptures, Creation declares the reality of God. Barring some rare genetic malfunction, every human being born into the earth has an inner GPS (God’s Protection System) directly plugged into The Creator of The Universe, commonly called a conscience. This inner sensory perception allows us to discern good from evil. Therefore, there’s no excuse for anyone to claim that they don’t know whether God exists or if He does exists, what He requires of their lives. Now, given that we are not robots, we all have the freedom and ability to suppress God’s moral standards in favor of our own or the world’s! And…such were all of us! (Ref. 1 Corinthians 6:11) Yet, the consequences of our erroneous decisions are completely out of our hands! And we all know how well that plays out, huh?

Beloved, there’s no denying how much God loves us! I mean, He was willing to sacrifice His Righteous Son to save us who so deserved the punishment for our unrighteousness! NEVERTHELESS HE CANNOT DENY HIS LOVE!

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Yet to deny the other part of his Holy Nature, is down-right foolish! Hence, stop trying to PLAY God! HE IS NOT THE ONE! Trust 2 know…the last thing you ever wanna DO is make God angry! Seriously! It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God! (Hebrew 10:31)

Beloved, God’s mercy awaits us every morning as He awakens us to embrace one more day! Unfortunately, we have no clue how long before Grace is frustrated. While it is yet today, Precious Ones, exercise your choice, accept Jesus as Savior and Lord! When it comes to your eternal destination…FAIRNESS IS OVER-RATED…CHOOSE LIFE!

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

DO U KNOW?

SELAH Daily Devotions!

And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. Deuteronomy 8:2

 

Someone once said, “God allows tests, trials and trouble to hyjack a Believer’s life in order to build up your faith”! Well, I’m not trying to dispute the validity of that train of thought, but simply contemplating, with all of the Hell the Saints have been going through lately, seems to me we ought to have a whole lot of ‘buff’ specimens prancing around our neighborhoods, huh? Justhinking, yall!

According to our scripture text, God delayed the Israelites entering and taking possession of The Promised Land for 40 years, right? Strangely enough, only two of the original slaves who were miraculously delivered out of Egyptian bondange actually crossed over into Caanaan. Joshua and Caleb. It was God’s testimony that they had a different spirit! (Ref. Number 14:24)

Evidently, God recognized that unlike all the others who had personally experienced the Awesome Powerful Providential care of God, these two trusted God, were relying wholeheartedly upon His Word, regardless of what contradictory circumstancial evidence suggested.

As I always say, ‘don’t be so hard on the Israelites’! After all, how often have you (so-called name-it-and-claim it-blabb-it-and-grab-it-disciples) latched hold to The Promises of God without taking into consideraton the process of transformation that must take place to prepare you for the manifestation? And remember how frustrated and anxious you got when God didn’t do things the way you expected Him to? We won’t even mention the complaints and accusations! Seriously?

Trust to know, God’s never the problem! Whatever God says IS!

When God says you’re delivered, you’re delivered. Obviously there’s something innately inscribed in our DNA that causes us to adapt to a worldly psychology ‘just open up the door and I can get it myself’. By the way, how’s that working for you? I know, right? Just when you thought you had it all together, here comes something you never expected! And try as you might, you can’t seem to work your way out of this wilderness mess, huh?

But hold up! God never intended you to live independently of Godself! That’s why He sent Jesus! He wants to take you farther, bless you more and keep you longer than you could ever go alone!

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6

Sometimes, you become so fixated on what you want, what you think and how you feel that you’re blinded to The Pillar of Fire and The Cloud that’s right before your eyes. So get over yourself!

Come to think of it, God was with them all the time, yet those who failed to Glorify Him as The Most High God, missed their opportunity to inhabit the Promised Land! #OMG!!!

WHATZ IN YOUR SPIRIT? GOD ALREADY KNOWS! DO U KNO?

SELAH!
