WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?

WHO LET THE DOGS OUT

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

There are many wayward people, smooth talkers, and deceivers—especially the converts from Judaism. They must be silenced because they are disrupting entire families with their corrupt teachings, all for their dishonest greed. A certain one of them, one of their own prophets, said, “Those Cretans are nothing but liars, worthless beasts, and lazy gluttons.” He certainly knew what he was talking about! For this reason, correct them thoroughly so that their lives will line up with the truths of our faith. instruct them not to pay any attention to Jewish myths or follow the teachings of those who reject the truth,  It’s true that all is pure to those who have pure hearts, but to the corrupt unbelievers nothing is pure. Their minds and consciences are defiled.  They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are disgusting, disobedient, and disqualified from doing anything good. Titus 1:10-16 TPT

 

 

Mama told me there’d be days like this! BUT, C’mon nah! Who ever thought that progress would be interpreted as truth being despised and irrelevant, deceitfulness, pride, arrogance and greed is extolled while integrity is detested, trust is impaired according to the circumstances of any given moment and hope is deferred as justice bows to social elitism, racial prejudice and party preference! AND ALL THIS IS MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN? #Don’tshoutmedown, nah? A matter of perspective, huh?

TRUTHBTOLD, The Holy Scriptures are being unfolded, live and in living color, right before the eyes of the discerning who yet ascribe to the concept of Biblical Absolutes! Shocking, right? The lawlessness, chaos, confusion, uncertainties, frustration caused by the desolation of moral codes is the inevitable response when the righteous commands are resisted by the rebelliousness of a culture determined to evict the Sovereignty of the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY favoring to do what’s right in their own eyes!

BUT can somebody say, “THANKSB2GOD!” Knowing everything that could, should and would transpire before the foundation of the world, GOD, has made provision through HIS ETERNAL WORD to fulfill HIS DIVINE Plan and Purpose for His most precious of creation’s restoration and reconciliation! Rest assured Beloved, nothing has, can or ever will happen in the earth (and your life) that takes God by surprise! When it seems as if everything is fallen to the dogs and hell is winning, remember, KING JESUS IS STILL ON THE THRONE, REIGNING & RULING OVER THE AFFAIRS OF MANKIND!

And while the rage of the dogs’ barking seems to be drowning out The Voice of Holy Spirit, don’t get it twisted! God’s got them on a lease! Beloved, although we’re living in a season of spiritual darkness, we don’t faint in fear but we boldly walk by faith in the Light of HIS ETERNAL WORD! In the midst of spiritual famine, we remain undaunted, steadfast, courageous, focusing and trusting JESUS, The Author and Finisher of our our Faith.

Your Heavenly Father promised, “ I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU! (Ref. Heb. 13:5) At God’s appointed time The Glory of God SHALL ARISE,  bringing about a Divine Reversal! The first shall be last and the last shall be first! (Mark 10:31)

Blessed is the one who has made the Lord, his trust! Psalm 40:4

GOD MAKES EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL, IN HIS OWN TIME! STAND STILL & SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD! TRUST2KNO, Destiny’s calling 2 shut the dogs mouths!

OOOOHHH SSSSWEEET WONDER! OOOOHHH SSSSWEEET WONDER! JESUS THE SON OF GOD!

 

ABBA FATHER, once again Your children stand before You with our hands lifted up, our hearts leaning towards Your Majestic Throne and our mouths filled with glorious praise and adoration! For this is the day that You have made and we shall continue to rejoice and be glad in it! We know that it’s only because of Your Loving-Kindness that we are yet here in the land of the living. We bless You for You alone are worthy of all the gloraaa! U alone are worthy of all the praiz! For there is and never shall be NONE LIKE YOU!

As we come into Your Presence, we bow in humility at Your Awemazing Grace; that You continue to pour out upon us! Only You can look beyond our faults and yet minister compassionately to satisfy every need and desire! Your Unfailing Love flows daily to the just and the unjust alike! For through the ages there’s yet a universal cry coming up to Your ears that acknowledges, ‘IF IT HAD NOT BEEN FOR THE LORD ON OUR SIDE, OUR ENEMIES WOULD HAVE SWALLOWED US UP’!

FATHER, hear us as we proclaim, ‘HALLELUJAH TO THE LAMB OF GOD’!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we’re eternally grateful that You welcome and encourage each of us to seek a personal, intimate, intense and effective relationship with The Triune GOD! For it is in You that we live, move, breath and having our being! For You are the source of all that we are and ever hope to be. Father, we repent now for every and anything that we’ve done, thought and said that failed to come up to Your Holy Will, statutes and purpose for our lives. Wash us over again in The Blood of Your Son, Jesus that we might be cleansed from our iniquities. Restore our covenant relationship for You are our Righteousness, Redeemer and our King!

Let the prayers of the righteous prevail and let everything and anything that our enemies bring against us scatter. Father, we thank You for what You are about to do that is exceedingly, abundantly above all that we can ask or image. For You are our Joy, for You have given us Love, Power and a Sound-mind. We thank You for the contentment that flows from Godly-repentance; we thank You for being a Very Present Help In troubling times! We thank You for strength, goodness, kindness, mercy and grace to preserve us that patience may yield it’s perfect fruit of righteousness in and through us!
We thank You Heavenly Father, that we do not look like what we’ve been through! Thankya for never leaving us or forsaking us through the temptations, test, trauma and drama, the good and the bad, the dark days and sleepless nights You stayed right there by our side letting us know that You Love us! Sweet Jesus, You are a Wonder in my soul! You are Alpha and Omega, The King WHO CAN NEVER BE ignored, dismissed or DE-throned! For You are King of kings and Lord of lords!
Abba Father, we thankya for everything You brought us out of, for every time You put us on the wheel in order to mold, make and shape us according to Your Will. We believe that because Your Ways are higher than ours, Your Thoughts are beyond our finite comprehension, that You are always leading and guiding our steps and our stops, assuring safe passage from glory to glory! We trust that while none of us enjoy suffering, weeping endures for a night but JOY does come in the morning!

 

Father, we lift up our brother, our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, touch them from the crown of their heads to the soles of their feet, rebuking and commanding that every tissue, muscle, blood vessel and organ be restored to it’s proper function! As You walked this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! 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!

Abba, we ask that You encourage and comfort the souls of Your Elect who are overwhelmed with fear, distraught by grief, doubt and worry because of the things that are going on in our personal lives and in this ungodly world systems! Preserve us thru every test and trial; keeping us constantly aware of OMNIPRESENCE, fully-confident that all trouble does have an expiration date and that at Your appointed time, You will bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word.

 

Precious Lord, remember the elderly, the widows, the abused, the downcast, the outcast, all those who have born the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through! 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! Send Assurance that we are never alone, and never without Your Very Present Help!

Dear Lord, we believe that as we praise and Glorify Your Name, everything else MUST come subject to Beautiful, Healing and Victorious Name of JESUS! We decree and declare that at The Name of Jesus, every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that JESUS IS LORD over, in and through all! Even as we lift up Your Name, You are calming all our fears, soothing all our doubts and solving all of our problems.

Sweet Holy Spirit, because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we thank You for hearing the hearts of those who have never trusted and accepted Your Son Jesus as Savior and Lord! Quicken that stony heart now with a ‘SINCERE REPENTING YES’ that they shall come to You humbled by Your Lovingkindness, in obedience to Your call and receive Your Mercy and Grace to Save. We pray now that You are 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.

Lord, we ask You to put a “COMMITTED YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider! Let today be the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR church 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!

Abba Father,  we lift up our children, our Grand/Great-Grand-children and by faith, we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives, canceling every 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 we have the blessed assurance that their every step and stop is being ordered by Your Eyes! Therefore 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!
Sweet Jesus, we lift up every spiritual leader, we’re asking and believing for immediate manifestation of that special miracle for  all those who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the  Power, conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit. 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!

Knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying for and thanking You for the government/legislative/judicial/corporate/education, healthcare/public service, military,, police, fire department, every aviation and every transportation worker and leaders of our nation! Heavenly Father, we’re believing that You will visit them in the night seasons with dreams and visions, warning them that 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.

We thank You for forgiving us and saving us from us! We thank You for interrupting our Adamic DNA by infusing The Precious, Perfect, Sacrificial, Atoning, Substitutionary Blood of Jesus, that completely eradicates and renders null and void every curse, sin, spirit of iniquity, perversion, poverty, sickness and disease that may be lying dormant in our bodies and hearts, releasing us from the power, penalties and punishment of our ancestors. We thank You for giving us the authority to speak life to every dead situation and bind, frustrate tiredness, weariness and release strength, prosperity, Divine Health, Increased Wealth and Wholeness in every area of our Being! FOR WE TRUST AND BELIEVE THAT HE WHOM THE SON SETS FREE IS FREE IN DEED!

We Thank You Holy Spirit for the Divine Impartation of a second wind that is now swelling up in our spirits, minds, souls and bodies, that’s not only changing every adverse situation that we’re facing but is also changing us for the better, empowering us to live the GOOD, ABUNDANT LIFE that You purchased for us! We thank You for the fresh anointing that’s falling from the crown of our heads to the soles of our feet, casting down all ungodly imagination, destroying every yoke, lifting every burden, empowering and equipping us to fulfill our God-Ordained assignments. We thank You Heavenly Father for the Spirit of Excellence that glorifies Your Name. We thank You for the confident Hope that YOU ARE WATCHING OVER YOUR WORD AND WILL PERFORM EVERYTHING THAT YOU HAVE SPOKEN OVER OUR LIVES!

Dear Lord, 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 Will, Ways and Salvation known among all nations; for You Guide and Rule justly! We thank You now, believing that it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus we seal our prayer with a spirit-inspired Hallelujah! Amen 3X and It Is So!

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES AND CARES FOR EVERYBODY!

SELAH!

DIVINE JUSTICE IS NOT PARTISAN!

divine justice is not partisan

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

This is what the Lord says: “For three sins of Judah, even for four, I will not relent. Because they have rejected the law of the Lord and have not kept his decrees, because they have been led astray by false gods, the gods their ancestors followed, 5 I will send fire on Judah that will consume the fortresses of Jerusalem.”

6 This is what the Lord says: “For three sins of Israel, even for four, I will not relent. They sell the innocent for silver, and the needy for a pair of sandals. They trample on the heads of the poor as on the dust of the ground and deny justice to the oppressed. Father and son use the same girl and so profane my holy name. They lie down by every altar on clothes taken in pledge, And drink the wine of their god. Amos 2:4-8

 

While we rarely care to be reminded, much less own it, History has revealed numerous innate flaws in humanity! Yet, The Creator of Heaven and Earth is not in the least bit hesitant to point our these fickled- fallacious tendencies in an effort to divert us from being repetitively susceptible to and victimized by them as were our forefathers!

As our text unfolds, we see Amos, a little known Sheepherder, is commissioned by God, to leave his home in Judah and travel north to  warn the people of Samaria and the Kingdom of Israel!  Having provoked God’s anger and exhausted His patience and forebearance, Judah and Israel would now suffer the thrust of  God’s impending judgment because of their perpetual rebellion and blatant disregard for His Righteous Commands!

A closer investigation of the text bear witness that after decades of devastating struggles the nations of Judah and Israel were now basking in a time of great prosperity and military success! Having successfully eliminated their traditional enemies, they enjoyed tremendous wealth and infamy. In other words, they were living their ‘best life ever’! Unfortunately, that’s when we’re most vulnerable to forgetting the Gifter and magnifying the giftings!

Much like today, the leaders of these nations, assuming that they were somehow entitled to these exuberant graces, were immune to the sufferings of the least amongst them and took advantage of every opportunity to keep the poor enslaved by poverty, inequality, worthlessness and hopelessness!

Little did they realize that God despises human pride, particularly when it’s rooted in self-righteousness and barnacled in indifference to the welfare of others whom God has Divinely-Positioned them to steward over! WOW! Many a person, blinded by unjustified confidence in personal status, has seen their worldly wisdom reduced to mere foolishness, huh?

This is specifically true for religious leaders who believe that God is impressed with packed-out ‘FAKE’ Worship services that tend to promote ritualistic celebrations but do nothing to produce Repentance nor Godliness in individuals, our communities, culture or society! DON’T SHOUT ME DOWN NAH! #ijs!!!

Beloved, TRUST2KNO, GOD IS IMPARTIAL WHEN IT COMES TO APPROPRIATING JUSTICE! Your last name, birth right, inheritance, bank account balance, educational degrees, zip code, civic, corporate, or political affiliations do not exempt us from the righteous punishment for insidious immoral crimes we commit against our fellow humanity! While man’s justice may remain blinded by race, ethnicity, class, false assumptions of pre-disposed genetic advantages/disadvantages, GOD’S HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT IS NOT! NO MAN IS ABOVE HIS LAWS!

HE WHO SITS HIGH ABOVE THE CIRCLE OF THE EARTH IS NO RESPECT OF PERSON WHEN IT COMES TO DISPURSING DIVINE LEGAL OPINIONS THAT CAN NOT BE OVER-RULED! We must all remember that The Kingdom of God is not a democracy, but it is, was and shall forever remain a SOVEREIGN ETERNAL THEOCRACY!

ZION, BEWARE! The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. (Proverbs 15:3)
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. (James 4:7)
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the. 1 Peter 4:17

#DIDJAHEARDAT? GOD IS NOT DISCRIMINATORY OR PARTISAN! HOWBOUTU?

GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? OOOHHH GLORRRAAA!

 

Once again, we’re so happy that you’ve joined us in our weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We count it an awesome honor and privilege that The Creator of Heaven and Earth would allow mere humanity to communicate our desires, inquiries and supplications, fully expecting that He’s listening compassionately and intentionally to perfect our concerns, console our fears and dispel our doubts according to The Transforming Power of His Presence that is at work within us! Let’s do this…

I’m only human! I’m just a woman; Lord help me believe in all I can be and all that I am! Show me the stairway, that I have to climb! And Lord for my sake, teach to take one day at a time!. One day at a time, Sweet Jesus! That’s all I’m asking of You! Lord, give me the strength to do everything that I have to do! Yesterday’s gone, Sweet Jesus and tomorrow ma never be mine! Lord for my sake, help me to live one day at a time! Shall we pray?

 

Abba Father, we’re so grateful that You have given us one more day to enjoy Your Life-giving, Life-sustaining Mercy and Grace! We bless You for allowing us to boldly enter into Your Throne Room, confident that You will entreat us graciously as we pour out the burdens that seem to overwhelm our hearts, releasing everything that concerns us. Lord Jesus, we know that You are Omnipresent and Omniscient, see and already know everything about everyone of us, yet You have invited us to come to You for comfort, strength and encourage us to hold on to every Word that You have spoken over our lives, even before we were born!

From hearts open, depending and relying only on You, we offer up sweet precious praise to You today, thanking You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to sacrifice His Life, opening our spiritual eyes to see Your Glory in His Face, causing us to seek and receive Him as our personal Savior and Lord, giving us the opportunity to live for, through and with You in this present world and the world to come! We thankya for Your Compassionate Faithful Love that extends to us such undeserved Favor to live, move and have our being! We bless You for one more opportunity to embrace richness of Your Loving, Kindness and enjoy the unsearchable depth of Your Peace as we boldly enter into Your Throne Room, confident that You will entreat us graciously as we pour out the burdens that seem to overwhelm our hearts, releasing everything that concerns us.

Lord Jesus, we know that You are Omnipresent and Omniscient, see and already know everything about everyone of us, yet You have invited us to come to You, for comfort and strength as You encourage us to hold on to every Word that You have spoken over our lives, even before we were born! From heart open, depending and relying only on You, we offer up sweet precious praise to You today, for renewed strength,understanding and power as we reverence You as our personal Savior and Lord.

 

Heavenly Father, with unspeakable joy, we Thank You for being our Salvation, Shield, Strength, Deliverance, Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding! With heartfelt humility and sincere gratitude, we acknowledge The Favor, Compassion and Faithfulness that continuously flows into our lives from You, knowing our frame, yet looks beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to satisfy all of our need!

Abba Father, we bow reverently before You, humbly assured that if we would but confess our sins, You, Heavenly Father, being Faithful and Just will forgive us, and wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, cleanse us from all unrighteousness, and restore every breach that our rebellious disobedience has caused between our poor souls and our Savior, Lord Jesus, we now ask You to forgive us for everything that we have spoken, done and thought that was not pleasing in Your sight!

Daddy, because You are no respecter of person and no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we pray that You draw and save the lost! Quicken The Spirit of Godly-repentance in their hearts and minds that they will come surrendering to You today, confessing a “SINCERE YES LORD” to Your Grace Gift, believing and receiving You as their personal Savior and Lord and asking You to baptize and fill them with Holy Spirit, empowering them to live the rest of their lives exemplifying Your Wondrous Works to a lost, dark unregenerated world!

Father, we pray on behalf of anyone who has turned their back on You, walking in their own will, today we ask that You plant a “COMMITTED YES LORD” into their hearts and minds, 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, because You desire that Your children prosper and be in good health, even as our soul prospers, we ask that You touch our brother, touch our sister whose bodies have been afflicted by all manner of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual sickness and diseases! We plead The Blood of Jesus against the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, heart conditions, high/low blood pressures, depression, dementia, autism, any demonic-induced temptations, perversions, ungodly soul ties, doubts, addictions, learning disabilities, low self esteem, anxiety, fears and failures. We intercede on behalf of all those undergoing chemo, radiation, dialysis treatments, surgical procedures, those in recovery rooms, those who’re on life-support systems, not knowing that they’re even in this world, declaring and decreeing that even as we’re praying, You’re walking through every ward, touching,miraculously healing and delivering, rebuking fatigue, mistakes, mishaps, misdiagnosis and premature death. We pray for consoling strength for all who are grieving the lost of loved ones and strengthening caregivers!

 

By the Power and Authority invested in us, we rebuke every Satanic oppressing spirit and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake, Amen 3x! Lord, according to Your Word, You were wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities and by Your stripes we have been 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!

 

Precious Jesus, we lift up every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, we ask that You restore confident hope that even if those who have been elected to lead this nation seem to have forgotten that their power has been designated from The Supreme Source of ALL Power, You are yet Jehovah Jareh Who supplies all of their need according to Your Riches in Glory!

 

As instructed, we pray for our enemies, those who despitefully use us and bless those who are bitter and speak evil of us, that our faithfulness may be a sign that we belong to You!! As Children of The Light, we pronounce blessings, joy, peace, favor upon all who trust You, as You prepare a table before our enemies and empower us to rebuke venomous, hateful, words of racism; because all flesh is of one BLOOD! We speak LIFE, believing that You will cover our babies in daycare, our children in schools, our families, on their jobs and as they go and come in!

Lord Jesus, we pray for those who’s faith is fainting, strength wavering, struggling while waiting for Your Hand to intervene on our behalf, send confirmation that Your Promises are Yeah and Amen! Thank You for assuring them that the pain that we’re experiencing is in fact transitioning us into new levels of Your anointing, opportunities, relationships and restoring that which is broken. Help us to move by faith, remembering not the former things but confidently reaching forward fully persuaded and anticipating that everything You’ve promised already is as we Thank You for the great things You have prepared for Your people!

Father, as we lift up our children, our grand and great-grand children, by faith, we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives, canceling every 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 we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by Your eyes! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies, releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

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. We pray for the church to be The Church that You’ve called to be influencers in the midst of the lost and ungodly world.

Precious Lord, we praise You as The Way Maker, Miracle Worker, Promise Keeper and our Light in The Darkness! We delight in Your Divine Power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection, confident that You will preserve us thru every tests that You allow, keeping us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE, resting assured that You’ve already designated the time of deliverance and will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised in Your Word because we have trusted in You!

Sweet Holy Spirit, open up our minds and our hearts, grace Your children with hope-filled trust that You, Father have committed Your Word towards us that no weapon that’s formed us shall ever prosper and no trouble, test or trial can come near us except You allow it! Help us to remember that we belong to You, are never too far that You can’t see us or can’t reach us and You’re forever shielding us from anything that Satan forms against us. Help us to understand that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower, and the righteous who run into it and are saved!

Heavenly Father, You Alone have the Power to turn everything around to work in our favor and bring about exuberant testimonies and praises of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory! Therefore, we decree that every Satanic-induced spirit of fear and death is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power, Sound-mindness and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

Father, we rest in confident-quietness, rejoice in hope, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shame and defeat knowing that You have heard the voice of our weeping hearts, our supplications and have received every word of our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Heavenly Father, we thank You now, believing that because Your ears are attentive to our prayers, according to Your Perfect Will and timing IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen and It Is So!

Now, we encourage every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL ONE SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES AND CAN SAVE ANYBODY!#FRONTLINEMINISTRY #CARE2SHARE

HOPE UNDER SEIGE?

HOPE UNDER SEIGE

 

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 down on the 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 that there were two nations co-existing in one! #ijs!!

 

According to historical accounts, Courage and Confidence was once the hallmark of our nation! Yet, some  might suggest that the infamous catastrophic events of 911 has radically stripped away this lofty heritage and the hope-filled future legacy that was once ascribed to the land of Power, Peace and Prosperity is now being besieged by the rampant rage of darkening clouds of an evil foreboding fear, doubt, anxiety, stress, guilt, shame, confusion and condemnation!

Well, it behooves me to be so presumptuous to dare debate the inevitable result of widespread deviation from the moral standards as defined by The Holy Bible!I 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 perishes? The past has proven that without the restraint of 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 self to take care of our needs and satisfy the desires of our own 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 God, trusting wholly in His Sustaining Grace!

Instead of conforming to the ways of the world, believers don’t bail out! Hence, in the face of the calamity and 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 covered! Anybody remember Goshen, God’s Protected Place? (Ref. Exodus 8:22) #EXACTLY!!

Beloved, trust 2 know that when it looks like your world is falling apart, look again! Don’t allow fear to drain your faith! From Heaven’s perspective, everything is falling right in place! Remember, Jesus has already gone into Tomorrow to prepare a table before you, right in the presence of your enemies! (Ref. Psalm 23:5) #Didjaheardat?

IT AIN’T WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE, K? YOU GOTTA HOPE BEYOND THIS WORLD!

SELAH!

Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. Proverbs 14:34

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my ace, and turn from their wicked ways,then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14

 

Here we are again, huh?  Climing of of bed this morning, one can’t help but contemplate the events of the past few days, sighing gratefully, “Thanks Be To God,” our Nation has survived one more surprise attack”, huh?  Who knu that the greatest threat to our national security would originate from within the borders of our own democratic system? Nontheless, they say, ‘Liberty and Justice For All’, right? Well, I suppose that depends on one’s personal perspective. Nevertheless, we can agree on this, Freedom is not free nor is it cheap!

WELL,AT LEAST AMERICA’S GREAT AGAIN, huh?  WOW! I guess that depends on which side of the aisle you’re seated on!

Hence,  as for me and my house I’m gonna declare and decree, in Order to form a more perfect Unity, establish true Justiceinsure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain. establish, stand steadfast, immovable always abiding in THIS TRUTH, that despite all of the tremendously sophisticated technological security advancements of  the 21st Century,  the safest place in the whole wide world yet remains “smack-dabb” in the middle of GOD’S PERFECT WILL!!!

While many families are still struggling to cope and recover from the distress of 911, the increase in the random killings of young students,  senseless massacre of innocent kindergarteners at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary,  bomb blasts  abruptly interrupting The Boston Marathon , suicide bombings at airports globally, lunatics open-firing on random citizens out enjoying a matinee movie,  afternoon shopping at the local mall and evenings at their favorite restaurants or niteclubs,  those who arbitrarily invade the sanctify of Bible Study and Prayer Meetings, and to add insult to injury, now there’s the unprecedented diagnosis of post election stress disorder!  

The devastating sociological effect of the culmination of  each of these obviously re-enforce the new-now reality! America has changed forever! Consequently, that somewhat bi-partisant-nonchalant-attitude that we once viewed as irrelevant, after  all the slaughtering of innocent civilians was happening way over there in other countries has given way to a national sense of restrained anxiety and anticipation!

The false sense of serenity that our nation once enjoyed has now converted to sporadic rampant acts of violence, devastation and destruction. In the aftermath, we see a socieity of proud Americans struggling to present a united front, clinging, crying, comforting, praying together in an attempt to let the world know “We’re proud to be Americans; United we stand and God bless America”!

Now don’t shout me down! Trust me, I’m just as patriotic as anyone. I am grateful that God destined me to be born in this country. However, first and foremost, I’m a Christian; a citizen of The Kingdom of God! Therefore, I am compelled to plead on behalf of all my fellow countrymen, “America, IT’S TIME TO TURN BACK TO GOD!” 

I’m old enough to remember backndaday when America was known as a nation “under God”! However, sociologist infer that we’re hovering on the edge of  joining so many other nations by becoming a ‘post-Christian nation that tolerates a growing number of sins and belittles absolute Truth!’

There’s no denying that God has been immeasurabely merciful to America! Time and time again, God has proven Himself to be ever so near to us. Our nation’s history confirms that God has continuously reached out to assure us, “My children, we are in this thing together…forever. I am here to help you. I am your shield and your buckler; I am as close as the very breath you breathe. I am fully and totally committed to you.” Unfortunately, just like the Israelites in Bible days, this nation has persisted in boldly rejecting GOD’s Way, insisting on doing things our way, even legislating unrighteousness!

Well can I offer my most solemn suggestion; my fellow Americans, instead of trying to pass the buck between the Dems, Tea Party, GOP or the blazantly indifferent and disenfranchized, we need to repent!  

My point is why spend so much time, money and attention looking for answers while pursuing false godsWe don’t need another God to save us! We just need to turn back to the One True Foundation of this great nation.  Seriously?  It’s time to bend our knees, bow our hearts, and surrender our praise and worship to The True and Living God our Lord Jesus ChristClearly, everything that we will ever need is in Him.

What’s the point of having another National Day of Prayer if we have no intention of changing? I mean, can you imagine the stinch that’s seeping into The Throne Room of His Grace and Mercy? #yukyuk! Awemazingly, The Living God is waiting for His Chosen People to humbly cry out in sincerity to Him, (actually repenting) and return to the Rock of our Salvation! 

“Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the LORD of hosts.” Zechariah 1:3

WAKE UP AMERICA,  GOD WANTS HIS AMERICA, BACK!  BUT I GUESS THAT KINDA JUSTICE IS STILL A MATTER OF PERSPECTIVE, huh? #NUFFSAID!

SELAH!

Our Father and our God of Heaven and Earth, once again, we come before You humbled by Your Loving-Kindness, Awemaazing Grace and Tender Mercy! We do not take it for granted as if we have earned the right to live, but we’re eternally grateful for one more opportunity to behold The Glory of Your Presence! We know that it’s Your Power and Strength that has kept us alive today! Because of You we live, move and have our being! With our hearts rejoicing, hands lifted up and our lips forever praizing and thanking You for revealing to us such wondrous treasures that were hidden from our understanding, when we walked surrounded by darkness, as dead men in the earth without a God on our side! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!

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

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

Sweet Jesus, we’re eternally grateful that You are our Great High Priest, able to intercede on our behalf continuously searching and conveying the thoughts, intents, emotions and physical weaknesses that we’re often unable to articulate to The Father of All Grace and Comfort! We thankya Lord, for being A Very Present Help!

Precious Lord, looking around this country and seeing what’s going on in world, we pray that You will hold back the flood waters, rebuke the winds and bind the hand of death an destruction! Send hope, healing, deliverance and restoration wherever it’s needed! In Jesus Name!

Lord, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word, You know that sometimes, it’s difficult to over-ride the noise of the pestilence, the chaos of uncertainty and the the down-pull of pain condemnation, guilt, and shame that seems to lure us into the valleys shadowed with danger, fear, anger, bitterness, anxiety, hopelessness and self-doubt! That’s why we gladly run to You, now seeking refuge in the midst of storms, peace in the midst of the waves and hope for the faithful restoration that You have prepared for any who would come to You in hope-filled assurance that You will never deny Your Word!

Heavenly Father, thank You for continuing to satisfy our souls, renew our strength, understanding and power as we yield the cares of our hearts to You! Because no man can come to the Father except you draw them, Father, we interceded on behalf of every unsaved soul, please quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their heart and in their mind that they will come confessing a “sincere YES” to Your Precious Gift of Grace and receive You as their Lord and Savior! We’re believing that You will direct their footsteps and place them and settle them into a church home where they will be loved, nurtured, encouraged and taught the Ways of Your Kingdom!

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

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

We plead the Blood of Jesus, declaring and decreeing You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Even as you walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! Lord Jesus, Your Word declares that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Holy Spirit, intervene on our behalf to expose and rebuke the murdering spirit, the spirit of  doubt, unbelief, hesitation and release us from every ungodly soul tie and enable us to move forward away from the shores of comfort to embrace the thoughts and plans that You have for us! Birth in us new things, releasing an anointing to destroy yokes, and giving us hope in Your Eternal words that You are watering the dry places, and causing the dead bones to live again!

Help us to remain faithful and keep a Kingdom mindset, relying on the Holy Spirit to go before us and make our way prosperous. We believe You are dispensing overwhelming Favor, Prosperity, Peace and when these blessings are manifested, help us to walk in a spirit of humility giving Your Name all the Glory, Honor and Praiz!
We bind every wicked scheme that the enemy desires to assail against us declaring that we are well able to take possession of every promises that You’ve made to us! We pray for total deliverance from every cord that would bind Your people and come against our God -ordained Destiny! We rebuke the enemies of our minds, thanking You that nothing can stop the blessings or us from performing the greater works You have assigned to the covenant saints! We thankya for the courage and patience to stand, steadfast, consistent, always abounding in the work of our LORD!
We pray for consoling strength for all who have lost loved ones, touch bodies, rebuke the demons of the minds, and emotions, disappointments, restore power, love and sound minds, hope and the JOY of Your Salvation. Help us to understand that because we are royal priests, a holy nation unto You, failure is not final and our victorious testimonies shall provoke envy of other nations who have not submitted to The True God but who yet serve false gods!
Sweet Holy Spirit, we bless You for The Spirit of Sonship that has raised us up calling us “MINE”! Therefore, as Children of The Light, empower us to rebuke venomous, hateful, words of racism because all flesh is of one BLOOD! We pray for the church to be The Church of The Bride of Christ! Strip us from every demonic influence! You have called us to be influencers in the midst of the lost and ungodly world. We pray for our enemies, those who despitefully use us. Help us to bless those who are bitter and speak evil of us that our faith may be a sign that we belong to you! We pronounce blessing, joy, peace, favor upon all who trust You, as You prepare a table before our enemies!

Lord Jesus, send confirmation to those who are wavering as they’re waiting in faith for Your hand to move on our behalf. Thank You for allowing the pain that we’re experiencing to birth greatness in us! Transition us into new levels of Your anointing, opportunities, relationships, restoring that which is broken. Help us to move by faith, remembering not the former things but confidently reaching forward fully persuaded and anticipating that everything You’ve promised already is!

As we offer up this prayer of faith we speak life,  believing that You will cover our babies in daycare, our children in schools, our families, on their jobs, as they go and come in and that nothing shall cut our lives short, but we shall live and not die! Thank You for the great things You have prepared for the people of God!
Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher, Teacher Missionary, Deacon, musician choir director/member, praise team, liturgical dancer, usher and church member! Undergird them with Your Anointing and conviction to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people and those who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and ministry,You have ordained.

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

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

Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of addiction, perversion and fear is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

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

Abba Father, in closing, we stand in agreement with You who hears and answers our prayers, and forgives our transgressions! Because You have chosen us, committing to love and care for us, our souls shout with joy unto The One to Whom all men will come! We bow in obedient reverence before The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us that, You are making Your Ways and Salvation known among all nations for You Reign, Rule and Guide justly!

Holy Father, we thank You NOW, believing that it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X and It Is So! Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES EVERYBODY!

SELAH!
