LIVING YESTERDAY

Living Yesterday 2

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

THIS IS THE DAY WHICH THE LORD HATH MADE, REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT! PSALM 118:24

 

The Good ol’ Days!” WOW! Remember? But what is it about memories? Either time has a peculiar way of tainting our perspective or our minds automatically default to selective-perceptions when the moment ends.

#WOW! Somehow, as we reflect upon days gone by,  there will be times when we can actually feel that gut-wrenching pain (that you were utterly convinced was terminal) and the high that would get higher and the groove gets groovyur; the music never stopped; the laughter would become heartier and the flood of tears would never subside; the mornings came too soon and the nights were eternal; puppy love would grow into a couple, a family and divorce and you’d just…and recess lasts for a lifetime…and then it didn’t! BUT SUDDENLY, IT’S TODAY and you’re still alive! #wannacheckurpulse?

The infamous THEY said that the richest piece of real estate in any town, city, state or nation is the grave yard!  #DIDJAGETIT?  Can you imagine all of those hopes, dreams, secrets, recipes, thoughts, conversations, hugs, apologies, promises, potential, possibilities and plans that remain unfulfilled beneath the soil! WOW! 

BELOVED, release the coulda’s, woulda’s, shoulda’s! Smile triumphantly over conquests and the sweetness of successes! Sigh sheepishly over the guilts and regrets—then thank GOD for all the second chances!

My Precious Ones, whatever happened, good, bad, ugly and indifferent; you survived it ALL!

“You can’t alter your past, but you can always take your past to the Altar!” (unknown)

Thank GOD for the Sufficiency of yesterday’s Grace and Hope-Filled tomorrows!

BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, THANK GOD FOR THIS BRAND-NEW BLESSING CALLED 2DAY! DON’T WASTE A SECOND OF IT! #ijs!!! LIVE LOUD TODAY AS IF IT WERE YOUR LAST! 

WHO KNOWS, IT COULD VERY WELL BE, huh? 

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

SELAH Devotions!

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

Once again, we’re inviting you join us in our weekly Day of Corporate Fasting and Prayer! The Bible tells us that some things can only be released through effective fervent fasting and prayer. In deed we must agree that we need to pray more NOW THAN EVER BEFORE! Let’s enter into The Throne Room of The Lord and Creator of Life…

We love You Lord, and I lift my voice, to worship You. Oh my soul, rejoice! Take joy my King, in what You hear, and let it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your Ear! We adore Thee! We adore Thee, We adore Thee, O Lord!

As we’re PRAYING, we’re TRUSTING, BELIEVING & DECLARING…

 

Almighty Father , our God, as we bow our heads and our hearts to thank You for this day we honor You, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for the privilege to enter into Your Throne Room confident that You welcome us and rejoice in hope that You are listening to our prayers!
Heavenly Father, we thank You for our being able to see, and to hear, and to speak, and to feel, and to taste of Your goodness this day 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 God. You have already done so much (more than we could ever deserve) for us and yet You keep on blessing us. We dare not take this GRACE for granted, therefore we pray, Abba Father, forgive us this day for everything we have done, or said or thought that was not pleasing to you; we are sincerely sorry and humbly repent  before You now asking for Your forgiveness trusting in Your Promise that You are Faithful and Just to give us and to wash us over again in Your Precious Blood; cleansing us from all unrighteousness!

We thank You for being The God of our Salvation, The ONLY HOPE of our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision. We’re thankful that because You know our frame, Your faithfulness and compassion allow You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities and failures, yet You see and minister to all of our need!

We pray for renewed strength, understanding and power that comes from a heart open to, depending and relying only on You. 

We pray that as Your eyes continue to search the hearts of mankind that you save the lost, put a yes in their heart and in their mind that they will come to you today and receive You as their Lord and Savior.

Abba Father, we’re praying that You will reclaim every back-slider and that You will place them and settle them into a church home today where they will be recommit the rest of their lives to faithfulness and obedience to Your Will, purpose, plan for their lives.

Father we lift up every government leaders and officials world wide, those who are positioned in the arenas of education, financial, judicial, health care! Release a Godly Fear into their hearts that will convince them that The Source All Power and Authority is GOD and that You will ultimately judge each man according to their own deeds!

We ask that You remember every spiritual leader, asking that You encourage them by intervening with a 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.

Father, we’re trusting and believing that You will 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!

Father, we commit our children, our children’s children and by faith, into Your Providential Care! Lord, we realize that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too and we have the blessed assurance that their steps are yet being ordered by Your eyes!

Heavenly Father, stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name that they will have a desire for an even greater personal, intimate relationship with Creator God through fellowship of Holy Spirit that they might prove what is the perfect and acceptable will of The Lord Jesus!

We rebuke the spirits of fear, confusion, worry and anxiety, defeat, failure, stress, oppression, bullying, suicide, murder,  condemnation, shame, guilt, bi-polar, autism, alheizmer, dementia and we loose Your Peace upon every heart that declares You are Lord. We thankya for Your Promise that no weapon that is formed against us shall prosper and every tongue that rises up against us, thou shall condemn!

Lord, we ask that You continue to open the eyes of understanding so that Your people are not easily deceived by those who desire to entrap your children in bondage once again to anything that You have delivered us from.

Lord, I pray for every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, that You will release Divine power, Supernatural strength and health, provision, prosperity and protection. I pray also Father, that You will preserve them thru the tests that they must go thru 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.

We lift up our bros and sistas who are grieving the loss of loved ones, release Your angels of mercy, comfort and grace to sustain them through this difficult season. We’re believing that as we’re praying, miraculous healings and deliverances are taking place all over this world. The Peace of God is being poured out upon the minds of those who are being attacked by spirits of depression, oppression, addictions, perversion, doubt and unbelief as You are suddenly taking dominion over Satan’s schemes, pulling down strongholds and cancelling demonic-induced assignments in Jesus Name Amen 3x!

Abba Father, we rejoice now in confidence and quietness, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, turning their backs as they run from Your people, 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!

Sweet Holy Spirit, recognizing that there is much more we could, should be asking of You, however, we’re trusting and believing You to search our hearts and minds, interpret the sighs, moanings and groaning of our innermost being and intercede on our behalf to fix everything, causing all things to work together for our highest good and Your Greatest Glory!

Father, we thank You, honor and praise You now, for we believe that it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus, we seal this prayer with  AMEN 3X & A HOLY HALLELEUJAHHHHH!

SELAH DEVOTIONS!

 

GOOD MORNING FAMILY! GOTTA MOMENT? AWESOME!

 

 

We’re delighted to have you with us today in our weekly Day of Corporate Pray and Fasting! We appreciate every opportunity and privilege extended to us that we might entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest, pouring out our hearts desires, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. Humbled by such graciousness, we bow before Him, embracing Him in earnest expectation, confident that He Who Rules Forever by His Power is able to save and deliver us from any of life’s maladies, we grab hold to The Horns of The Altar now to worship Him

 

My soul loves, Jesus! My soul loves, Jesus! My soul loves JESUS, BLESS HIS NAME! My soul loves JESUS! MY SOUL LOVES JESUS! MY SOUL LOVES JESUS…BLESS HIS NAME! O, Sweet Wonder! Oh Sweet Wonder! Jesus, The Son of God! Ooohh Sweet Wonder! JESUS THE SON OF GOD! Bow down and Worship Him, Worship Him! Ooohh Worship Him! Bow Down and Worship Him! Enter in! Oooh Enter In. Consuming Fire, Sweet Perfume! Your Awesome Presence, fills this room! This is Holy ground…This is Holy ground…we bow down….

 


Abba Father, it is with great joy that we entreat Thy Throne of Mercy today! Trusting confidently that You have afforded us this awesome honor and privilege not because we deserve it, but based solely on Your Loving-Kindness we draw close into Your All Encompassing Presence! Lord Jesus, we Thankya for Your Faithful Obedience to please The Heart of The Father by sacrificing Your Life in our stead, that we might enjoy the privilege bestowed upon us to become Sons of The True and Living God! And for this cause, we bow in humble gratitude, fully aware that we come before You, empty and void of anything that would warrant such awesome graciousness, but only because of Your Righteousness we are the beneficiaries of All that You are in the eyes of God! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!

 

Thank You for being our ONLY 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 done, 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 confess 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!”

 

Jesus, we know that You already know everything about every single one of us, because You are Omniscient and Omnipresent, but because You walked among us, allowing Yourself to be tempted at all points as we are, You learned what we experience in these earthly tabernacles and therefore You can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! Therefore, as our Great High Priest, You are 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, Compassion and Comfort! We Thankya Lord, for being our 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 and fire, rebuke the winds and bind the hand of death and destruction! Send hope, healing, deliverance and restoration wherever it’s needed! In Jesus Name!

 

Lord, while it’s difficult to blot out the noise of the pestilence, the chaos of uncertainty and the the down-pull of pain, condemnation, guilt, shame and confusion that seeks to lure us into the valleys shadowed with danger, fear, anger, bitterness, anxiety, hopelessness and self-doubt, we STILL TRUST YOU! We gladly run to You, seeking refuge in the midst of storms, peace in the midst of the waves and hope for the faithful restoration thatYou 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 “fresh COMMITTED YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider! Let today be the day that they repent and come back to You and back to YOUR church determined to humbly submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, learn to love and live their lives denying the lust of their flesh and walking to please You!

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 and saving souls 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 procrastination! Release Your children 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 purposed for us! Birth in us new things, anoint us to destroy yokes, and restore our 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  and come against our God-ordained Destiny! We are thankful that nothing can stop our blessings or keep us from performing the greater works You have assigned to Your 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, the caretakers of the feeble, rebuke the demons of the minds sent to attack our emotions with disappointments and we command restoration of power, love, hope and the JOY of Your Salvation. Help us to understand that as royal priests of a Holy nation unto You, failure is not final and  that our victorious testimonies shall provoke the 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 elevated us from sinners, beggars and slaves and now we are priviledged to have You call us “MINE”! Therefore, as Your peculiar treasures, You have empowered us to rebuke every venomous, hateful word of racism and elitism! As You teach the church to be The Church of The Bride of Christ, strip us from every demonic seduction! As You have called us to be influencers in the midst of the lost and ungodly world, help us to pray for our enemies, to bless those who despitefully use us, those who are bitter and speak evil of us that our faith may be a sign that we belong to You! We pronounce blessings, 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. Assure us that the pain that we’re experiencing shall birth YOUR GREATNESS in us as You transition us into new levels of Your anointing, opportunities, relationships You are restoring that which is broken! Help us to  WALK BY FAITH, remembering not the former things but confidently reaching forward, fully persuaded that NOW IS NOT ALWAYS, anticipating that everything You’ve promised already is!

 

As we offer up this prayer of faith we believe You to cover our babies in daycare, our children in schools, our family and friends! As they go out and come in, You are rebuking threats, accidents, terrorist, assassins, bullies, predators, rapist and we decree that nothing shall cut our lives short!

By faith, we lift up our children, our grand and great-grand children, trusting The Faithfulness of Your Word! We commit them into Your Providential care, rebuke and cancel every wicked scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! We acknowledge that our children are a gift from You and that You have a Plan and Purpose for each and everyone of their lives! We have the blessed assurance that from their Mothers’ wombs their steps and stops are being Divinely ordered by Your eyes THEREFORE, we declare and decree that NO WEAPON THAT’S FORMED AGAINST THEM SHALL PROSPER, AND EVERY TONGUE THAT RISES UP AGAINST THEM SHALL BE JUDGED AND CONDEMNED RIGHTEOUSLY BY YOU! 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, The Bishops, Pastors, Overseers, Apostles, Evangelist, every Preacher, Teacher, Missionary, Deacon, musician choir director/member, praise team, liturgical dancer, usher and church member! We speak LIFE, STRENGTH, ENCOURAGEMENT, CONFIDENCE, ASSURANCE, RESTORATION OF HOPE and TRUST into all those who are yet believing for immediate manifestation of that special miracle and the fulfillment of every vision that You’ve placed into their hearts! Reward richly ALL those who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word with POWER, under the CONVICTION AND ANOINTING OF HOLY SPIRIT.

Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace them to be the TRUE & FAITHFUL WITNESSES and 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 and glorifying You! Undergird them to carry out their assignment, under the direction and guidance 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 You have instructed, we continue to pray for the leaders of the world, our nation, government, Congress, Judicial, Legislative, corporate, education, financial institutions, health care providers, prison systems, community service worker! Rebuke the Spirit of corruption, collusion and deception! Touch their minds and hearts with GODLY FEAR; 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! Because their hearts are in your hands, we believe they are being continuously opened to hear and obey your will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Promise 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, encourage and comfort the souls of Your elect who may be 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 peace that assures us that WE ARE NOT FORGOTTEN OR FORSAKEN and at the appointed time,You, will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and rewarded as You have promised  in Your Word, according to Your Riches in Glory!

As we close our prayers, Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of addiction and perversion is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing, 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,  we stand in agreement with You Who hears,  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 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 AND HALLELUJAH 3X !

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS DIED 4 EVERYBODY AND THAT HIS GREATEST DESIRE IS THAT WE ALL BE EMPOWERED 2 LIVE 4 AND WITH HIM 4EVER!

Abba Father, we come before You, humbled by Your Loving-Kindness today, In the Magnificent, All Powerful Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus! While many of us are struggling with the real-time cares of this dark, lost and ungodly world, our spirit man is yet rejoicing, praising and thanking You for blessing us to see THIS brand new day. For we recognize that it was not because of any goodness of our own that we live, move and have our being! We quickly thank You, Father for another opportunity to embrace and enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace that comes from hearts wholly leaning and trusting solely upon Your All Sustaining Sufficiency!

Heavenly Father, it is with unspeakable joy that we offer up praises unto You for being The ONLY True, Living Eternal God of our Salvation, our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision.With heartfelt humility and sincere gratitude, we acknowledge that Grace, Compassion and Faithfulness that allows You, knowing our frame, YET You look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities and minister so graciously to every need pertaining to life and godliness!

Abba Father, hear our prayers reverberating from hearts open, depending and relying SOLELY upon You as we offer up precious praise to You, for that Glorious Day when You interrupted our lives, opening up the eyes of our understanding and filling our spirits with the Revelation of Your Son Jesus, allowing us to receive Him as our personal Savior and Lord!

In Jesus Name Amen 3x!

Lord Jesus, we’re eternally grateful for the indwelling Presence of Holy Spirit assuring us that YOU ARE THE SOVEREIGN LORD, therefore always in absolute control of all things. In light of the continuous influx of profound arrogance and illegal injustices being perpetrated again Your people from ‘the Satanic influenced powers that be’, the atrocious senseless murders taking place all around us, in the midst of sadden hearts and wearied spirits we shall never fail to express our gratitude because You have promised to yet keep us hidden under The BLOOD just as You provided Light and Provision for Your people in Goshen! We praise You, Heavenly Father, that even in these days of imminent terror, tragedy, chaos and destruction, we know that the safest place in this whole world is in YOUR perfect Will! Therefore, we trust that no weapon that is formed against us shall prosper and every tongue that rises up again your children shall be condemned!

Send direction to them, as they make decisions that affect our lives and our households and our children in the classrooms! Touch their minds and hearts, visit them in the night, speak to them in dreams and visions and let them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens is keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!

As we wait for You to move on our behalf, help us not to become lethargic and disenfranchised, refusing to do those things we’re called to do in our communities to honor the privileges that so many others before us struggled, fought even died so that we would have the right to vote and that our children would be able to live a better life than they did! Help us to be accountable in our communities, Churches, on our jobs, in our homes. Help those who carry Your word to walk upright standing for right in this contrary world!

Help us to stand in the Liberty, with our faith firmly rooted in The Sacrificial Atoning Blood of Jesus that has set us free, to live a quality of life that is exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond this natural realm! We declare and decree that as children of The Most High God, we are seated in Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus! Therefore the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but Mighty Through GOD, pulling down strongholds, casting down imaginations and everything that exalts itself against The KNOWLEDGE OF GOD! WE PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS OVER OUR MINDS, BODIES, SOULS AND SPIRIT!

Precious Father, we ask You to forgive us of every sin we have committed or omitted willfully and unwillfully in thought, word or deed! In Jesus Name! Where justice should prevail, Lord we plead for Mercy! Thankya for changing our story and those of our loved ones, who’ve not yet come to the knowledge of Your Saving Grace! We put them under arrest by the Power of Holy Spirit and we call their lives to come into proper alignment with Your Divine Word and Will!

Sweet Jesus, we call every backslider to bow to Your Lovingkindness and return to the fold immediately, with renewed commitment and genuine desire to adhere to the Kingdom Constitution as revealed through diligent study of Your Word with an ernest desire to build their personal  relationship with You through fellowship in a consistent prayer life!

Father, we’re believing that You are equipping us to walk filled with the Power of God, knowing that You have called the end from the beginning, we rebuke fear and intimidation, every kind of addictions assigned to hinder us from fulfilling the good plans You have for us! Break-free those who are being held in mind-paralyzing, mouth-muting captivity to speak the WORD with Holy boldness and Authority!

We declare and decree that as You touch them, You are lifting them up out of the pits of fear, anxiety, hopelessness, discouragement, oppression, depression, sexual abuse, spousal abuse, spiritual abuse, physical abuse, low self esteem, self-rejection, self-hatred and empowering them to walk into large places that You have divinely ordained from their Mother’s womb! We speak LIFE to those walking thru the valley overshadowed with death, Woman, Man, The Lord God heal, deliver, strengthen, empower and sustain YOU even NOW, IN JESUS NAME!

We speak wondrous reversal of any damage caused by strokes, kidney failure, heart disease, arthritis, glaucoma and every other eye disease! Father GOD, release a Divine Revelation of our healing that You purchased on Calvary and give us instructions on how we can loose total healing in every area of our being!

We pray for the caretakers assisting love ones and lift up those who are lingering on to life in hospice facilities aking for sweet transition! We pray strength for the weary. Lift up every bowed down head, strengthen hearts with Your unshakable Peace! Give us to Hope again! Help us to remember Your Faithfulness and Mercy in times past, recognizing that You O God are the same yesterday, today and forever more! Encourage us with Confidence that You hear our cry, even as You heard the voice of Your children in Egypt!

Father, we pray for the release of unexpected Favor of God; new jobs, promotions, opening new doors of opportunities for entrepreneurs, debt cancellations, loan approvals, unexpected financial blessings! YOU are OUR Jehovah Jareh, who shall supply all of OUR need according to Your Riches in Glory! We declare and decree that You are releasing a Double Portion of Your Anointing, Spirit of Love, Power, Sound-mindness and Purpose into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

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

Abba Father,  in closing, we align our spirits, soul and body with Your Eternal Word, shouting with unspeakable-joy unto The One to Whom all men will come! Bowing reverently obedient 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, Guiding and Ruling Justly! Father, believing that IT IS DONE, In The Exalted Name of Jesus we seak this prayer with Holy Alleleujah! Amen 3X!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the Knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His Divine power has given to us all things that pertain To life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue by which Have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be Partakers of the divine nature, having escaped The corruption that is in the world through lust. 2 Peter 1:1-4

 

Didjakno?  Today’s scripture text is penned by The Apostle Simon Peter! You know Peter, right? He’s the same cussin’ Peter who rejected Jesus three times, cut off the soldier’s ear, stepped out of the boat on the stormy sea and walked on the water to Jesus. Well,  now Peter is a self-proclaimed bond-servant, Divinely ordained and authorized to speak on behalf of Jesus ChristNow this really excites me! Why? Because it assures me of the unfathomable Mercies of our Loving Savior and that nothing in your past has the power to keep you from fulfilling your Destiny! Now to me that’s a good place to praise God, huh?  Hold my mule…Halleleujahhhh!

We, having no right to such loving kindness, yet have been graciously endowed with His Divine Power and given everything that we need to escape the corruption of this world and to live a holy and godly life, not in heaven, but in this present worldDidjaheardat? Unbelievable, I know; but it’s True!

God has equipped true Believers with indwelling Power of The Holy Spirit, transforming us into His Chariots of Fire in this earth!

We  love to sing Donnie McKlurkin’s song, “We fall down, but we get up, we fall down, but we get up…because a saint is just a sinner who fell down, and got up”! Don’t get me wrong, I like that song too. However, we can get a little twisted in our mindset, (not to mention our Theology) because of the craftiness of the devil, and without knowing it, we can actually be masking a spirit of rebellion behind the cloak of faith!

“Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound…GOD FORBID!” Romans 6:1-2

As disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, every one of us has been commissioned by God to reflect His Glory to this lost, dark and dying world. Yet, if we keep falling to the same old temptations over and over, flippantly counting on the favor of God to show up in our pit to rescue you out of the same old mess, how’s God’s Glory being manifested? #ijs!

According to The Holy Ghost, True Glory is manifested when a believer demonstrates righteousness thru faithful obedience. When you make a genuine commitment to deny the ungodly appetites of your flesh, rather than to bring reproach to the Name of His Lord and Savior, not only are you relying upon God’s Power to deliver you, you’re also proving your love and gratitude for all that Jesus did to redeem you back to your Heavenly Father.

Our journey to Heaven is plagued with unexpected, trouble, chaos and tragedy, however knowing that The Promise Keeper is able to open up pathways that you know not of, make ways out of no way, open doors that have been shut and carries us triumphantly  thru every valley to the mountaintops, fortifies our trust with Hope! As we experience His miraculous deliverances, it develops our confidence so much so that when our faith is challenged by difficulties, we don’t give up, we look up!

A true carrier of God’s Glory plants his faith in the Word of God’s Grace! Having done all to stand, stands therefore, steadfast, unmovable, always abounding, continuously expanding, exceeding all natural expectations, daring to taunt and frustrate the evil plans of the wicked, with holy boldness, testifying ‘Satan, I might have to Bend, but I refuse to Bow”!

NOW, YOU’RE JUS WHAT THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR!  #BOOM! GO AHEAD…LIGHT UP THE WORLD PROCLAIMING, ‘TO GOD BE THE GLORY! KEEP THE FIYA BURNING!

SELAH!

FOOLISHNESS, huh?

FOOLISHNESS, HUH

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel; not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us which are saved; it is the power of God…for after that in the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom knew not God; it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 1Corinthians 1:17-18, 20

 

Granted, in this New Millennium Church Age, there are those who challenge the relevancy and even the validity of ‘The preaching of the Cross’!  After all, we have so much going on, so much information available to us, so much to accomplish and so little time, right?

Well, guess what? Contrary to contemporary pop culture,God knew before we knew how long and how far mankind would go to avoid accountability!

According to 2 Timothy 4:3, ‘For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but having itching ears, they shall heap to themselves teachers in accordance with their own lusts.”

In other words, the focus would no longer be how to live a holy and sanctified life, in this present world, but folk would religiously come to church to scratch an itch, you know, to satisfy their hunger for more and some more of the WORLD’S creature comforts Of course they’d use a more palatable vernacular, such as, “Give me a ‘word’ that will tell me how I can supersize my life!” Or perhaps, “I’ll give you a part of my ‘free day’ if you can make it worth my while; you know, cheer me up, make me feel good (bring on the hype)! “A’int nobody got time for foolishness!” And we’d certainly be remiss to ignore this one—“You can’t judge me, God knows My Heart!” 

Like the ol’ skool Preacha said, “Guess I done lost half my Churrrch, nah; huh?”
 
I know we shouldn’t be shocked—but C’mon! This attitude prevailing amongst the household of faith? Yeah, I mean, we’re not talking about ‘dem worldly sinners’ we’re talking–’Church Folks’! Do you think that’s what the Scripture refers to as “having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” ?(Ref. 2 Timoth 3:5   #DON’TSHOUTMEDOWNNAH

But to those of us who yet truly believe in the Testimony of Jesus Christ and the Gospel message of that ol’ rugged cross, the preaching of the cross is NOT foolishness, but it is the POWER OF GOD to save the sinner man who will dare to believe that The Word of God is True.

QUITE frankly, it’s  not really that hard to understand exactly why the Deceitful Destroyer works so diligently to keep humanity from The Truth.  If we were in his position, we wouldn’t want this Good News on blast in mainstream social medias, either!  #ijs!! Obviously!!  The Bible says, if they only knew ‘They never would’ve crucified Christ’ in the first place. (1 Corinthians 2:8) Well guess what, devil… ‘You’re over 2000 years too late’!

Given the rapid decline of basic core values and the swelling demoralization of  21st Century society’s ‘new norms’ that’s taken place over the past fifty or so years, those of us who’ve been walking with the Lord for a while now, have come to the realization that the ONLY HOPE for sustaining any semblance of sanity (much less peace) admidst the certainty of massive uncertainties is a irrevokable determination that ‘COME WHAT MAY’, I WILL’  Trust in the Lord with ALL of your heart, and lean not to my own understanding but in all your ways, acknowledge HIM, and HE SHALL DIRECT YOUR PATH!”  (Ref. Proverbs 3:5-6) #CANIGETAWITNESS??

TRUST2KNO, it’s not my intent to denigrate your personal right to choose the way you life your life, BUT rather to point out, it’s getting darker and darker out here and unfortunately it ain’t gonna get no better until HE CRACKS THE SKY! So it behooves each and everyone of us to think long and hard before we pass up this amazing offer!
 
To the weary wandererThe Cross is the Place of Refuge! To the lost, The Cross is the Center of the Universe, where Eternity collided with Time and Mercy and Grace unashamedly kissed each other! To the unlovable  and faint of heart, The Cross is The Power and Love of God openly revealed and freely offered in exchange for our rebellion against the Righteousness of a HOLY God! To the spiritually bankrupt, The Cross  is the Place of Welcomed Surrender– where, you give Him your all, He Gives You His ALL!

To those who’re trapped in darkness, The Cross is where the Light of GOD’S Amazing Grace is still shining—beckoning us  “before the day of gross darkness overtakes youCOME!”

OH YEAH!  There’s always gonna be those who reject God’s gift of GRACE presented through THE FOOLISHNESS OF PREACHING, HOWEVRRRR, THERE WILL BE A HIGH COST 4 LOW LIVING! So who’s the real fool?

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

GOOD MORNING FAMILY! GOTTA MOMENT? GLORRRAAAA!

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

 

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

 

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

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

FOR THIS CAUSE, we offer up sweet praise to You today, for renewed strength, understanding and power that comes from a heart open to, depending and relying only on You!  Because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we intercede on behalf of every unsaved soul,  asking You to prick and quicken their stony hearts and minds with The Spirit of Godly-repentance that allows them to come running to You today confessing “a SINCERE YES” to Your FREE Gift of Salvation thru GRACE and receive You as BOTH their personal Savior and LORD! We’re believing that You will direct their footsteps and placing and setting them in a local church home where they will be welcomed and embrace with love, encouraged, nurtured and delivered thru the preached WORD OF GOD!
Lord, we ask You to put a fresh “COMMITTED YES LORD!” in the heart and mind of every backslider and let today be the day that they come back to You and come back HOME to YOUR church, where they will learn to love and live the life that’s pleasing  to You First and Foremost, being willing to submit the rest of their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, denying the lust of their flesh, determined to walk daily to please and Glorify You to this lost, dark and dying world!!
Abba Father, because so many of our family and friends are being afflicted by all manner of sicknesses and diseases, we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister, bind, rebuke and cast out every dis-ease at the root, for Your Name Sake! Heavenly Father, You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Even as You walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! Lord Jesus, Your Word declares that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on Your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!
Sweet Holy Spirit, we pray for every one going thru a season of sorrow and grief, those who are being victimized by institutionalized racism, tormented by Spirits of fear, rejection, disappointment and failure, divorce, lost of employment, bankruptcy and unjust illegal incarcerations! We plead the Blood of Jesus over every demonic thought, spirits of anxiety, oppression, depression and confusion, because we know that You are not the author of these satanic thoughts and feelings, but You have given us who have put our personal trust in Your Son Jesus, Your Righteousness, a Spirit of Love, Peace, Joy and a Sound Mind!
Father, as we lift up our children, our grand and great grandchildren, by faith we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives, we cancel every evil scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we realize that You have a Plan and Purpose for their lives too and with the blessed assurance that their steps are being ordered by Your eyes, we  speak The LIFE AND PEACE of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies releasing a Spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!
Sweet Jesus, lifting up every spiritual leader, we ask that You encourage and strengthen all the Apostles, Bishops, Preachers, Evangelist, Teachers, Musicians, choir members, Liturgical dancers and especially the Shepherds who are yet standing on the wall, proclaiming Your Unadulterated Word under the convicting power and anointing of Holy Spirit! We’re rebuking spirits of discouragement, failure, competiveness, resentment, unworthiness and suicide. We’re praying and believing for the immediate manifestation of special signs, wonders and miraculous desires that You have placed into their hearts! Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace them to be the examples of Your Righteousness in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love with You, trust wholly in and commit to live the rest of their lives serving You!
Eternal King, knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of all mankind, and as You have commanded, we’re praying that You have Mercy on our nation. We’re lifting up every secular, government/legislative/judicial,civic/corporate leader in authority over our nation and this world, we’re praying that You visit them in the night seasons with dreams and visions, warning them that The Eyes of the Lord roam to and fro throughout the land, searching the very intents of every man’s heart, make them aware of The Law of Retribution is in effect, therefore, He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment. He who digs a hole and scoops it out will fall into the pit he has made. The trouble he causes recoils on himself and his violent schemes will come down on his own head.
Precious Lord, we pray for every Believer whose faith is being sifted by the cares of this world, yet they’re struggling to hold on to Hope found inYour Word, trusting that this is the day that You release Divine Power, Supernatural Hope, Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection. Holy Father, we thank You for being our Shield and Buckler, we’re committing our lives to You, trusting You to preserve everyone of us thru the tests that You’ve ordained us to go thru,! Standing still, fully-confident that while our trouble has an expiration date but Your Power does NOT, we declare and decree that at Your appointed time, You will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with every reward as You have promised in Your Word.
Father, as we go throughout this day, we ask that The God of All Peace rest upon all who are oppressed, depressed, gripped by anxiety, fear and that Your Healing Wings cover the sick and afflicted, the hopeless, discouraged, comfort and console the caretakers! We pray that You bring understanding in the midst of confusion and extend Mercy to heal broken marriages and restore families. We declare and decree that we are more than conquers therefore, every demonic-induced spirit of addiction and fear is defeated NOW because of Your Yoke Destroying, Burden Bearing Anointing that the Spirit of Love, Power a Sound-mind and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!
Lord, while there are so many other things that we have yet to mention, we’re trusting that You are not just able, but You’re willing to do anything that we ask, according to You Perfect Will. We’re decreeing and believing You to FIX IT JESUS, as only YOU CAN!
Abba Father, awaiting Your Salvation and Deliverance in confident quietness, we rejoice in hope, trusting wholly that You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications with Thanksgiving and have received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

 

Heavenly Father, we thank You for these blessing and favor and seal this Prayer In The Holy Ghost, for WE KNOW THAT IN THE PRECIOUS EXALTED NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, IT IS DONE; WE SAY AMEN 3X with a HOLY HALLELUJAHHH!
Beloved, every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LIVES, LOVES AND CARES 4 U 2!
SELAH!
