GM Fam! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAAZING! Once again, we’re delighted that you’ve joined us in our weekly THURSDAYS’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting! In times like this, we need to know that we know that GOD is GOD and ALL POWER BELONGS 2 HIM! As we approach His Throne today, we’re confident that HE SEES, HEARS, KNOWS AND IS THE ANSWER TO ALL OF OUR NEED! LET’S ENTER HIS PRESENCE WITH JOYFUL ADORATION…

OOOH, Sweet Wonder! OOOOHHH, Sweet Wonder! JESUS, the SON OF GOD! OOOOHHH, SWEET WONDER! OOOOHHH SWEET WONDER! JESUS, THE SON OF GOD! There is a Name I love to hear, I love to sing it’s worth! It sounds like music in my ears, the sweetest name on Earth! OOOHHH. HOW I LUV JESUS! OOOOH, HOW I LUV JESUS! OOOOH, HOW I LUV JESUS! BECUASE HE 1st LOVED ME! BOW DOWN AND WORSHIP HIM! ENTER IN, OOOHH, ENTER IN…BOW DOWN AND WORSHIP HIM…

 

Abba Father, thank You for 1 more new day! Thank You for awakening us to enjoy all the many blessings that You have provided for each one of us! We bless You for fresh Mercy and Grace! We know that there’s nothing we have, canor will ever do that entitles us to be benefactors of such benignity, but You continue to look beyond all our faults to provide all that we shall ever need! For this cause, we bow in absolute humility reverently declaring that there is none like You in Heaven or Earth! In You we live, move and have our very being!

Sweet Jesus, we glorify Your Name above every other name because You Alone are Savior, Lord and Redeemer! Because of the shedding of Your Atoning Sacrificial Blood, we have been brought into right fellowship with our Heavenly Father, whereby we have the same blessings and privileges that You have as the 1st Begotten of The Father! We rejoice in praise singing,”If it had not been for The Lord on my side, where would we be!”

Lord Jesus, in light of all that’s happening in the earth today, we’re eternally grateful that You have taught us to say, it is well with our souls! Because You have assured us that even in these days of impending chaos, terror, drama and threatening destruction, our lives are hidden in You and You are yet in control of all things! We bless You for the confidence that we have in knowing that the safest place in the whole world in in YOUR PERFECT WILL! 

Father, while we strive to please You in all that we do, say and think, because of the frailty and flaws of our fickled flesh, we tend to all fall short of Your righteous expectations, willfully and unwillfully! Therefore, we come, repenting and confessing our sins to our Great High Priest, Who can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities, asking that You forgive us, wash us in The Blood of Jesus, restore us into the sheepfold and strengthen us by the indwelling Power and Presence of Holy Spirit that we may live our lives reflecting the abundance of Your Love, Grace and Mercy to a lost and dying world! Father, we believe that the continuous outpouring of Your Divine Favor towards us will cause multitudes of men, women, boys and girls to come asking, what must I do to be saved! In Jesus Name, Amen 3x!
Precious Lord, we know that no man can come to You, except You draw them, therefore we ask that You prick the hearts of every lost and back-slidden soul with a personal desire to draw nigh to You!  You’ve promised that when we draw near to You, You shall draw near to us! We pray that You save the lost, reclaim every back-slider by putting a “sincere and committed YES”, into their hearts and minds! Enable them to come today and receive You as their personal Savior and Lord of their lives! Bless, place  and settle them into a church home today where they will be embraced with The Love of God, encouraged, nurtured and strengthened in Your Word to live the rest of their lives, glorifying The Light of Your Likeness to those yet ensnared by the darkness of this dying world! In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Precious Lord, we lift us all those who are grieving the lost of a loved one, those who have been victimized by all manner of abuse and neglect, those who’s marriages are in turmoil and threatening separation or divorce,  financial distress due to lost of employment, bankruptcy and foreclosures! We plead the Blood of Jesus over thoughts, spirits of fear, doubt, anxiety, oppression, depression and confusion, because we know that You are not the author of these demonic thoughts and feelings, but You have given us who have put our trust in Your Son Jesus, Your Righteousness, Love and Joy in The Holy Ghost!  As we lift up every believer who is yet holding on to your Hand by faith today, we pray that You will release a double anointing of Your Divine Peace, Power, Supernatural Strength, Provision, Prosperity and Protection. In Jesus Name! It is so!

We ask also Father, that You preserve them thru every test that You have allowed us to go thru confidently assure that You will bring us out restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in your Word. Encourage our hearts, with Your Word that empowers us with an overwhelming consciousness of Your Abiding Presence causing us to confuse our enemies with exuberant praise and worship lifting up The Only Wise Savior and Lord Jesus!

Father, we believe that You  will touch our brother, touch our sister who has been afflicted by any sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, heart, lung, liver and kidney failure, high/low blood pressure, HIV/Aids, arthritis, dementia, autism and other mental disorders! Heal, rebuke and cast out every symptom and trace of  all physical, mental dysfunction 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, souls, minds and bodies of those who are charged to care for their loved ones!

Father, once again, we lift up our children, our grand and great grands and by faith we’re canceling every plot and strategic scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your providential care, we have the blessed assurance that because You have a plan and purpose for their lives too, every one of their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by Your Sovereign Eyes! We believe that The Blood of Jesus is covering them and shielding them from the snare of Satanic deception, In Jesus Name, Amen 3x!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Evangelist, Preach, Teacher, Deacon, auxiliary leader and member! We ask for an immediate manifestation of that special miracle for each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the Power, Conviction and Anointing of Holy Spirit. Undergird them with Your Anointing and Holy 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. Grace Your menservants and maidens to be authentic examples of holiness, in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall deeply in love, trust wholly in and live their lives faithfully serving You! In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Father, in the midst of looming darkness and despair, we ask that You stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name and empowering them with 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!

Knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying as You have instructed us, for the leaders of our nation and the world, every corporate, judicial, education, financial, health care institutions, public service and military individuals! We’re trusting that You are touching their minds and hearts, speaking to them in dreams and visions and 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 ears and hearts 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!

We ask that Holy Spirit continue to open the eyes of understanding so that Your people are not easily deceived by those who would desire to entrap Your children in bondage to lustful desires  which You have delivered us from. We declare and decree that every demonic-induced spirit of  anxiety, temptation, lasciviousness, addiction, greed, covetness, unforgiveness, resentment, rejection, self-hate, suicide, fear and failure, guilt and shame is already defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness is being released now, in Jesus Name AMEN 3X!

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

ABBA FATHER, WE  NOW THANK, HONOR AND PRAISE YOU, BECAUSE WE  WHO KNOW YOUR NAME, PUT OUR TRUST IN YOU, KNOWING THAT YOU LORD HAVE NOT FORSAKEN ANY THAT SEEK YOU! WE SEAL OUR PRAYER, IN THE EXALTED NAME OF JESUS.  HALLELUJAH &AMEN 3x!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

They will be my people, and I will be their God. I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear me for their own good and the good of their children after them. I will make an everlasting covenant with them. I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear me so that they will never turn away from me. I will rejoice in doing them good and will assuredly plant them in this land with all my heart and soul. Jeremiah 32:38-41

 

As a child, I vaguely remember a glimpse of pride swelling up inside whenever I heard someone say,‘this is the GREATEST nation in the world’! I suppose that’s what they mean by ‘let’s make this nation great…again, huh? But, that was before I became abruptly aware of the undeniable reality that there were two nations insidiously co-existing in one! #ijs

According to historical accounts, Courage and Confidence was once the unrefutable hallmark of our GREAT nation, huh? Yet, some would say that the infamous catastrophic events of 911 has since radically stripped away this lofty heritage and hope-filled future legacy  once ascribed to the land of the power, peace and prosperity! The land of the free is now being besieged by the rampant rage of darkening clouds of an evil foreboding fear, doubt, anxiety, stress, hatred, manipulation, guilt, shame, confusion and condemnation!

Well, it’s not my intent to debate the inevitable result of widespread deviation from the moral standards as defined by The Holy Bible. Howeverrrr, may I submit for your consideration, that without a holy reverence, a clear vision and a Divine impartation of understanding of WHO GOD IS & WHAT HE REQUIRES OF US, people’s strength will fail and their expectations of security  inevitably perishes! A conscientious analysis of  our country’s past proves that without the restraint of  righteous law and order, destruction prevails! Well, like the ol’ skool preacha used to say, “I jus lost half my churrch!” Seriously?

Honestly, when we don’t understand Whose we are, we’ll be inclined to doubt God’s ability and even His willingness to help us. Void of genuine hope and unable to trust God’s Unfailing Love, we instinctively depend upon the ingenuous wisdom and compassionate concern of nonpartisant national leadership, notwithstanding the innate proclivity of self to take care of our needs and satisfy the desires of our own biased hearts! And we all know how that turns out, right?

But those of us who dare to risk resentment, ridicule and rejection from those who will slander our righteousness, labeling us as unloving and intolerant, WE DEFY the prevailing opinions of the worldly in favor of the guidelines of the Ancient Landmarks, rejoice in hope, fully persuaded that if we suffer for Christ sake, we shall also reign with Him!  #CANIGETANGOODAMEN?

Through faith and hope, TRUE WORSHIPERS develop a singleness of -heart and mind, stemming from personal intimacy with The Lord Jesus Christ whereby we experience the Abiding Presence of  The True and Living God, trusting wholly in His Sustaining Grace!

Instead of conforming to the ways of the world, true believers don’t bail out! Hence, in the face of calamity and the uncertainty of chaotic circumstances, we stand steadfast, rooted and grounded in The Promises, Provision and Power, persevering in the midst of devastation, famine and plagues, confident that we’re coveredRemember Goshen, God’s Protected Place? (Ref. Exodus 8:22)

Beloved, trust2kno, when it looks like your world is falling apart, look again! Don’t allow fear to drain your faith while simultaneously diminishing your hope! From Heaven’s perspective, everything is falling right in place! The Eternal Omnipotent, Omnscient Creator and Sustainer of all life is never caught off guard by the fraudulent affairs of human-kind! A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps. (Proverbs 16:9) 

Precious ones,  Jesus has already gone into Tomorrow to prepare a table before you, right in the presence of your enemies! (Ref. Psalm 23:5) #Didjaheardat?

REST ASSURED, IT AIN’T WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE, K? YOU GOTTA HOPE BEYOND THIS WORLD! HIS NAME IS JESUS!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

GOOD MORNING FAMILY! GOTTA MOMENT! AWEMAAZIN!

Welcome to ONE more new day! We’re so excited that you’ve joined us in our weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Fasting & Prayer! We appreciate every opportunity to entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest to pour out our hearts desires, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. We know that our Heavenly Father delights in our embracing Him in earnest expectation, confident that He Rules Forever by His Power and is willing and able to save and deliver us from any of life’s maladies! Shall we go in?

Ooooh! OOOHHH! OOOOOOH! OOOOOHHHHH! OOOOOHHHHH! OOOOOHHHHH! JESUS! JEESSSUSSSSSS! JEEESSSSUUUUSSSSS! JEEEESUS! JEEESUSSSS! JESUS! WE LUV U LORD! WE LUUVVV UUUU LORRDDD! WE LUV U LOOORRRRDDDD! WE LUV U LORD! WE LUVVV UUUU LORD! WE LUV U LORD! WORTHY! WOOORRRRTTTTHHHYYYY! WOOORRRTTTTHHHYYYYY! WORTHY! WOOORRRRTTTTHHYYY! WOOORTHYYYY…

Abba Father, here we are again! As we come before You, we come praising and exalting Your Holy Name; for You Alone are Holy! You Alone are Awesome! You Alone are Mighty! You Alone are Worthy of All The Glory and Honor. For there is None like YOU! We thankya for creating us! We thankya for loving us! We thankya for chosing us! We thankya for rescuing us! We thankya for sending us Your Only Son Jesus as the Only Acceptable Sacrifice for the punishment that we so deserved for our sin! We thankya for raising Jesus from the dead to confirm our salvation and allowing us the opportunity to repent, put our personal trust in The Saving Grace of The Cross that we might live and enjoy Eternal Fellowship with You!

Heavenly Father, as we enter into Your Presence, we thankya for this new day! For this is the day that You have made for us to rejoice and enjoy the benovolence of Your Graciousness that You have provided fo us! We bless You for being the Source of our strength, the Strength of our joy and the Confidence of our Hope and Peace! We are grateful that Your Omnipresence, Omnipotence, Omniscience give us the assurance that as You look down from Your Throne, You see everything that’s happening in this world and because nothing ever takes You by surprise we know that while it may appear as if things are falling apart, EVERYTHING IS FALLING RIGHT IN PLACE, ACCORDING TO YOUR SOVEREIGN WILL AND PURPOSE FOR OUR LIVES!

Sweet Jesus, we Thankya for making ways out of no way; opening doors that no man can shut and shutting doors that no man can open! Because of Your mercy we are not consumed, for when we are deceived and tempted to stray away from Your commandments, You lead, guide and direct our steps and stops to keep us as we walk among men with unclean spirits and unclean lips!

We Thankya for being such a Compassionate Loving Savior, Who can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities. When we resist and overrule Your Perfect Will for our lives and go our own way, if we confess our sins, turn away from our rebellious thoughts and deeds and give up our own feeble attempts to make ourselves right before You, You are Faithful and Just to forgive us, cleanse and restore unto us the Joy of Thy Salvation!

Heavenly Father, as we gratefully acknowledge that because no man can come to the Father except you draw them, we pray, Daddy, that as Your eyes continue to search the hearts of mankind that You draw and save the lost, please quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their hearts and in their minds that they will come running to You today, asking “What must I do to be saved?” Because we recognize that time is winding up and You are soon to come, we pray that You will put a “sincere YES” in their mouths and that  they will accept Your Grace Gift and receive You as their personal Lord and Savior!

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

Heavenly Father, we recognize that our bodies are subject to all manner of maladies as a result of this world’s fallen nature, nevertheless, we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all physical, mental, spiritual sickness and diseases, we plead The Blood of Jesus against the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, heart conditions, high/low blood pressures, depression, demonic-induced oppressions of temptations, doubts, addictions, learning disabilities, low self esteem, fears of rejection, inadequacy and failure! We rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake! Amen 3x!

Dear Lord, according to Your Word declaring that You were wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities and by Your Stripes we are redeemed and healed,  THEREFORE, we’re yet standing firmly on Your promise that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name!

Lord, we’re pray for every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, we’re trusting that You are releasing Divine power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection.

We’re trusting also Father, that You will preserve us thru the tests that we  go thru keeping us constantly and consciously aware of YOUR PRESENCE, fully-confident that at Your appointed time, You will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word.

Father, as we stand interceding for one another, we’re thanking You for an outpouring of Your Divine Favor upon each and every one of your children who are seeking employment, promotion, prompt approval for student/car/home loans and assure them that YOU are YET HE, Jehovah Jareh, who shall supply all of their need according to Your Riches in Glory!

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

Father, by faith in Your Lovingkindness,  we rest in confident expectation and quietness, rejoicing in Hope, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly retreating in shameful defeat, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Our Father and our God, because we believe that You are listening to our hearts’ cry, IT IS DONE, in the Exalted Name of Jesus, we seal this prayer with a hearty THANKYA JESUS! AMEN 3X!

Now, we encourage every child of  THE TRUE AND LIVING GOD standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES THEM 2 LIFE! #FRONTLINEMINISTRY #CARE2SHARE

SINGLE VISION

SINGLE VISION

SELAH Daily Devotions!

“The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!”
(Matthew 6:22-23)

Have you seen that optical illusion photo of Jesus where you’re instructed to stare at the four dots continuously for about a minute, then look away to the light and watch the darkness evaporate revealing The Face of Jesus?

DID YOU SEE HIM YET… still too dark, huh?

Belief it or not, that’s a challenge for most believers? I mean, seriously! How can we be expected to focus on The Light of the World, when we are constantly encompassed and distracted by such gross darkness? As with most of the things Our Heavenly Father expects of us, it’s not always easy, yet if we make a conscious effort to disciple ourselves, it is possible!

We must stick  to the Living Word of Truth; not just on crisis days, but every day; as if our very lives depended upon it. And it does! Beloved, remember we’re strangers sojourning through this life on our way to a Glorious Family Reunion. (Ref. John 17:16) Jesus prayed to The Father that He would keep us in this world until He’s sent again to fully restore us to The Kingdom. Knowing fully well that we’d be hated by His enemies, just like He was while he walked this earth; Jesus asked The Father to put His Light in us to ensure that His followers would never be without His Presence. (Ref. John 17:15; Matthew 5:14)

The Apostle James said, “But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.  (1 John 1:7)

Remember, thou weary one, you are God’s Chosen! Despite the random patches of darkness, we are never abandoned. Jesus guaranteed that there will always be just enough light to guide us through these momentary afflictions! (Ref. Hebrew 13:5)

DON’T TRIP! STAY FOCUSED ON THE SON LIGHT! THAT’S RIGHT…SINGLE-VISION!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me. (Exodus 20:3-5)

I recognize that the sheer suggestion of idol worship tends to rattle the righteous indignation in the spirit of a true Believer! As followers of Christ, we know how despicably foul such worship is in the nostrils of The Holy God of Heaven and Earth. And for the most part, we’d never consider breaking this Commandment. After all, we don’t bow down before carved images of God nor do we display at the entrances or scatter stone replicas of God throughout our homes or businesses, right? Yet, will closer investigation of our lives reflect closely guarded idols formed in the recesses of our imaginations?

According to the scriptures  ‘O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.’ (Ref. Matthew 12:24) Hence, while man will attempt to hide the true intents, insights and purpose for being, ultimately, his lifestyle will reflect the secret things of his heart and clearly define where their loyalty lies!

Do we worship our personal ‘trial-sized’ images of God?

I see further explanation is in order! We have a tendency to make up our own images to represent who God is to us. The problem is we will never be able to fit “The All Encompassing Is-ness of GOD” into the small-minded-frail-framed-carnal-comprehension of our temporal-flesh. In other words, it’s absolutely impossible for us to fathom “Unlimited Presence, Power and Potential” within the limitations of our humanity!

While The Living God is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient, HE can only be known through Revelation!

GOD reveals His character, His purpose and His plan for each of as we traverse through our individual life experiences. It’s the knowledge gained through following The Good Shepherd’s lead, cautiously climbing cloud-covered mountaintops and timidly trembling through the death-valleys of our everyday lives that we learn the rewards of faithful trust, patient obedience and the security of resting in The Eternal Hope! 

Today’s takeaway?

Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his… 2 Timothy 2:19

Therefore, Beloved, as you continue to set the Lord  before you, you shall walk in HIS Everlasting JOY!

REST-DIRECTION!

REST-DIRECTION 3

SELAH Daily Devotions!

“Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.” (Psalm 25:1)

 

Sometimes, we find ourselves oscillating by the turbulent waves of adversity, drowning in the depths of desperation and despair. While we all know that trouble doesn’t discriminate, harassing the just as much as the unjust, somehow knowing doesn’t make suffering any less traumatic, especially to those of us who intentionally strive to live circumspect fully according to teaching of The Bible.

Perhaps this explains why many believers prefer to deny rather than acknowledge that occasionally they experience a wrath of depression that causes you to shrink back into self-imposed exile, shrouded by terror, isolation and false humility! But today, allow the WORD OF GOD to emancipate you from the burden of secretcy and shame!

Remember David?  Well, on several occasions, we find The Psalmist , crying out of the hub of his soul to his True Source of Salvation, The Living God?

As we follow The King in The Scriptures,  we see David relentlessly bellowing out his distress before his Friend, The Lord Adonai, uninhibited by reputation, shame nor guilt, but fully persuaded that this was indeed what pleases God the most, trusting honesty.

David’s intimacy with his God, was the foundation of his every prayer!

Beloved, during seasons of overwhelming circumstances, instead of running away from God, The Psalmist recognized the value and privilege afforded to him  and entreated God’s Compassionate Heart with the same hope-filled tenacity that he embraced during moments of ease.

We do well to understand that earnest sincere-honest-heart prayer stirs-up the atmosphere of Heaven releasing favor, and guaranteeing Divine Intervention.

Don’t insult God’s Omniscience with phony, fake emotional repetitions, as if He doesn’t already know your heart. Just follow the ‘man after God’s own heart’  and expose the nakedness of your heart, own your emotions and confess “But unto thee have I cried, O Lord; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent thee. Lord, why castest thou off my soul? why hidest thou thy face from me?”  Psalm 88:13

GO ‘HEAD; GOD CAN TAKE IT!

Don’t just wallow in the muck and mire of fear, dread and desolation. Take full-advantage of the situation by reconnecting to The Shepherd! Recommit your life afresh to new purpose, focus and strength. Reaffirm the Foundation of God’s Inseparable Love, entrusting your heart to The Faithful Eternal Lord of Glory!

Truthfully, God orchestrates these momentary afflictions to set you up for Triumphant Victory. WHAA? #didjaheardat?

WOUNDED WARRIORS

SELAH Daily Devotions!

“And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb; He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what He had promised, He was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.” Romans 4:19-22

As a remnant of the 20th Century Church, I’ve lived long enough to have a clearer understanding, why The God of The Bible adamantly commanded His Chosen Ones to resist amalgamating with those outside of covenant relationship with Him. (Ref. 2 Corinthians 6:17) And some of us thought that God just wanted to keep us from having any fun! Considering the way this world is headed, now we see the consequences of not distinguishing ourselves from unbelievers. Apparently, Father still knows best, huh?

Unfortunately, many who profess Christ, remain double-minded, straddling the fence, depending on the group they happen to be in the midst of. While God never intended us to conduct ourselves arrogantly, as if we are better than anybody else, yet as recipients of God’s Amazing Grace! Well, spiritually speaking, it does make us better-off!

What’s the matter Zion? Are we allowing the media’s reports of doom and gloom to mute our praise? If we’re walking around with our heads hung down and hearts inundated with fear and anxiety; worried about how we gonna make it, then what separates us from the Gentiles?

Abraham,The Father of our faith, found himself in a seemingly hopeless situation. Not surprising, Abraham tried to fix the problem by himself. He got Ishmael (the child of the flesh) when God intended to give him Isaac (the child of Promise).When the drama and chaos had escalated to the point that Sarah gave him an ultimatum (it’s either her or me) suddenly, Abraham had an epiphany “the only hope that I have of this thing ever working is Divine Intervention.” In other words, “I can’t do this, without Your Grace!”

OMG! Can we ever identify with Abraham! How many times have we been in a situation and we tried and tried, we cried and cried, murmured and complained, spent all we had and still came up short? It was not until we, like Abraham, made a conscious decision to stop depending on our inability, started relying on God’s Ability and turned it over to Jesus, that our hope was revived! As the text says, when all human reasoning for hope was exhausted, Abraham hoped on and God brought life into his dead situation. (Romans 4:17-18) Hence, when we come to the end of ourselves, God steps in and does what seemed impossible!

Stop listening to that devil telling you, “it’s too late, you might as well accept the situation for what it is –eminent defeat!” He’s still a liar! My precious saints, don’t allow your present (temporary) circumstances cause you to doubt the faithfulness of God’s Eternal Word. Don’t settle for seconds! If you are Abraham’s seed, you are the heirs of righteousness! So gird up the loins of your mind, being confident and fully persuaded that because The Christ in you automatically gives you a supernatural advantage over natural consequences! (Ref. Colossians 1:27)(Ref. 2 Corinthians 2:14)

Beloved, WHATEVER GOD PROMISES, HE IS WELL ABLE TO PERFORM! EVEN IF I CAN’T, GOD CAN!

SELAH!

“Have a WONDER-FILLED day!”
