SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Good morning Kingdom Children of The Most High God! GOTTA MOMENT? AWESOME!

Here we go again and we’re so excited that you have joined us in our Thursdays’ 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 all agree that we need to pray more NOW THAN EVER BEFORE! Let’s enter into The Majestic Throne Room of The Lord and Creator of Life!

Blessed be the Name of The Lord! He is Worthy to be praised and Adored! So let’s lift our hands on one accord! Singing Blessed Be the Name! BLESSED BE THE NAME! BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD! HE’s sweet I know, Jesus is sweet I know! Storm clouds may rise; strong winds may blow! But, I’ll tell the world, wherever I go, that I’ve found my Savior…and HE’S SWEET I KNOW! I really love the Lorrrddd…I REALLY LOVE THE LORD! U DON’T KNOW WHAT HE’S DONE FOR ME! HE GAVE ME THE VICTORYYYY! I LUV HIM! I LUV HIMMMM..IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII REAALLLYYY LUUUUUVVVV THE LORD!

AS WE’RE PRAYING, TRUSTING, WE’RE BELIEVING & DECLARING….
Abba Father, we come before You today, not in our own righteousness but in the Magnificent, All Powerful Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus! As we come clothed in humble obedience, we’re rejoicing, praising and thanking You for blessing us to see this brand new day! We’re  sooo grateful, Heavenly Father, for one more opportunity to embrace and enjoy the Abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace!

Daddy, as we thank You for being LORD of our Salvation, Deliverance, Hope, Breakthrough and Provision, we’re forever eternally grateful that despite knowing our frame, Your Faithful Commpassion yet allows You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to continuously supply and minister to all our need! Therefore,  before we go any further, we come now seeking Forgiveness, Mercy and Grace, convinced that You Who searches our hearts is able and willing to cleanse us from unrighteousness and restore us to right fellowship in Your Kingdom!

We praise You today Lord, for renewing our strength, encouraging our hearts and enlightening our understanding. We recognize that You, our Great High Priest, is able to search the secret things, and even when our hearts condemn us, Your Lovingkindness is greater than our broken and contrite spirits! As we come to the end of ourselves, we draw near to You, repenting openly, relying and depending wholly on the Faithfulness of Your Word!

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that no man can come to You except You draw them! Therefore,  we intercede on behalf of every unsaved soul, asking that as Your eyes continue to search the hearts of mankind, quicken our hearts and minds with the Spirit of Godly-repentance that all will cry out to You, sincerely confessing ‘YES’ to your Mercy and Grace toreceive You as personal Lord and Savior today. As You draw them near to You,  because it’s not Your Will that any should perish, but that all would run quickly to Your Loving Arms and receive Your Saving Grace, You will save them! Father, as You pick them up, we’re believing that You’re directing their footsteps to a local Church home where they will be welcomed by their Kingdom Brothers and Sistas, loved, encouraged, nourished, and taught how to live out their lives pleasing and glorifying You!

Abba Father, we pray for every backslider who has walked away from the fold for whatever reason! Your Word assures us that You have never issued a divorce decree from any who has come into covenant relationship with You. We ask Holy Spirit to prick the heart and mind of those who have fallen prey to the Deceiver’s lies right now. Let them know that You’re looking, waiting with Your arms open wide to receive them in joyful celebration as they return to Your Kingdom! Lord, plant a ‘commited YES’ into their hearts and minds that restores and empowers them to be Faithful witnesses to a lost and dying wold, In Jesus Name! Amen 3X!

Sweet Jesus, touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, heart, kidney, lung, liver, bone disease, drug and alcohol addictions, mental oppression and depression, Alzheimer, dementia, strokes, high/low blood pressure! Lord we know that You have the Power to rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. Lord, 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!

Lord, as we lift up every believer who is experiencing the torment of grief, anxiety and weariness, those who have lost loved-ones unexpectantly, those who’ve been victimized by senseless killings, those who are caretakers of ailing loved ones, those who are struggling to remain hopeful as they sit at the bedsides of those whom the doctors have gone as far as they know, yet today they’re determined to hold on to Your Hand by faith today! We lift up marriages that are being target by Satan, broken family/friends relationships. We speak revival and restoration into their hearts, minds immdiately! We rebuke the Spirit of disobedence and rebellion and command it to leave in Jesus Name! We declare respect, humility, gratitude, loyalty and obedience over our children, spouses and family members, in Jeus Name!

Abba Father, we declare and agree that as we are yet praying, You are releasing Divine Power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection into the lives of Your people. We Thankya Father, that as You preserve us thru the tests, keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE, we shall remain fully-confident that at Your APPOINTED TIME, You will bring us out testifying that we are more than conquers because You have wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and rewarded our souls as promised in Your Word!

Sweet Holy Spirit, thank You for an outpouring of Your Divine Favor upon each and every one of your children who are seeking employment, promotion, prompt approval for student/car/home loans, favorable resolutions of legal matters and assure them that YOU are Jehovah Jareh, who shall supply all of their need according to Your Riches in Glory!

Father, because You are a Covenant Keeping God, by faith,  we lift up our children, our children’s children,  we abort every curse that’s been ordered against their lives and we cancel every plot and scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we remember how far You have brought us and realizing 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 under the watchful care of Your eyes! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies releasing a Spirit of Love, Holiness, Faithfulness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Sweet Jesus,  recognizing October as being Pastors Appreciation Month, we lift up every spiritual leader that You’ve called to proclaim The Gospel of Jesus Christ. We ask that You touch their hearts and minds, strengthen and encourage them to cast their cares upon You, trusting You to lead and guide them as they shepherd the flock that You’ve entrusted to them. Remind them that except You build the House they labor in vain, except You keep the City the watchman waits in vain. Uplift those who have become weired by the rebellious and resentful to keep believing for immediate manifestation of that special miracle, fulfillment of the vision! Encourage the souls of all who have yet determined to keep their hands to the gospel plow!

We’re trusting and believing that as You continue to Grace them to be the holy humble examples in their homes, marketplace, communities and churches that will cause those who are in their sphere of influence to love, trust and live everyday of life serving and glorifying You, You shall release a double portion of Your Anointing to stand flat-footed, uncompromisingly and relentlessly on the Wall, proclaiming The Whole Counsel of Your Word under the power and conviction of Holy Spirit, in Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Heavenly Father, as You’ve taught us to do, we lift up our political, social, judicial, business, education, healthcare, daycare and public service worker and leaders, trusting You to touch the hearts of each one of them! Remind them that Power Belongs to GOD! Instruct their hearts through dreams and nite visions convicting unto repentance, convincing them that they’re merely instruments in Your Plan to establish Your Kingdom in the earth as it is in Heaven! Rebuke the spirit of pride and arrogance, lying and deception, greed and corruption! Remind them that as You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens, are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will Justly reward accordingly!
Abba Father, we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of fear, failure, rejection, hopelessness and disappointment is defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Soberness is being released now, in Jesus Name! We’re declaring and trusting that each morning Your children will awaken empowered with assuring Grace to accomplish every assignment and sleep peacefully every nite, confident of brand new hope-filled tomorrows!

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 The Blood of Jesus is covering 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!

Holy Father, we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope-filled expectation,  anticipating that every worker of iniquity is suddenly trembling violently in fear,  departing  immediately in shameful defeat and running away from Your people terrorized because You, The Creator and Sustainer of Life, have heard the voice of our weeping, 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 The True and Living God, 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 unspeakable joy unto The One to Whom all men will come! We bow reverently 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, believing that ACCORDING TO YOUR PERFECT WILL, In The Exalted Name of JESUS IT IS SO, WE CRY AMEN  AND HALLELUUJAHHHH 3X !
Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES EVERYBODY AND CAN SAVE ANYBODY!

SELAH!

U CAN ALWAYS LEAN ON ME!

U CAN ALWAYS LEAN ON ME

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies. Psalm 18:1-3

He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me…He brought me out into a spacious place, he rescued me because he delighted in me. Psalm 18:16-17, 19

 
Let’s be honest, k? Looking at the state of this New millennium society,  many of God’s elect find ourselves confronted by circumstances that challenge the very foundation of our trust! We’re seeing things that were once believed unimaginable realized right before our very eyes! Our hearts are overwhelmed by the swiftness of the degradation of the core of humanity’s morality! While wisdom is largely rejected and Shame is nearly extinct, Arrogance and Deceit have become the new order of the day! Thereby  emboldening mankind to do whatever seems right in his own mind!  While we dare not confess, either publically or privately, truthfully, many seasoned-saints are secretly fainting, wearied in well-doing and longing for the Promised Rapture!

Rarely do you find the sacred sounds flowing from the sanctuaries on Sunday mornings, noon day prayer meetings and Friday nites where the people of God once gathered to call on The Name that’s above every name before erupting into exuberant praises and worship-filled celebrations of real deliverances wrought by The Faithful Hand of The Lord!  Apparently, the induction of the more sophisticated-politically-correct-con temporal-relevant- reformations of Millenniums have subrocated many of the ol’ skool teachings, songs and hymns to backroom storage in dusty piano benches in order to make the message more palatable to the masses! #ijs #Don’tshoutmedownnah!

Unfortunately, there are some troubles, tests and trials that you can’t STOMP yourself out of or BOUNCE your way thru! Time is hurling into Eternity at the speed of life and 45 seconds of the nitely news affirms that we’re living in the last of the last days! As the institutions of men are being shaken by sporadic turbulent waves of the wisdom of this age, it’s incumbent upon each of us to be very sure that our souls are firmly anchored in The Solid Rock!

As the ol’ Mothers used to sanng, ‘In times like this, U Need a Savior, in times like this, U need an Anchor! Thanks Be 2 God, there’s yet a remnant of believers who are crying out, “Lead Me to The Rock that’s higher than I’! As satanic fiery darts continue to spread globally, consuming dreams, diminishing aspirations and devastating families, we must earnestly bend our knees and bow our hearts Heaven-ward, seeking refuge in the secret  pavilion of The Most High God!

For in the time of trouble, we hide behind The Shield of our very Present Help who faithfully rescues those who delight in His Truth!  Driven by The Eternal Hope, our souls rest assured in quietness, peace and joy, awaiting the The Horn of our Salvation, courageously-confident that God’s Power is Incomparable, His Love is Inseparable and His Provision and Protection are Infinite!

Sshhhhh! Didjaheardat? SOMEONE’S CALLING YOUR NAME!

“Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

Beloved, whenever life’s maladies leave you too weak to stand on your own, chances are you’re right where God wants you! Positioned for breakthrough! Remember, God never intended you to do life independent of GODSELF, that’s why He sent Holy Spirit!  “TRUST2KNO…U CAN  ALWAYS LEAN ON ME!”

SELAH!

THIS WAY OUT!

 

THIS WAY OUT

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

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

I know we don’t like to talk about it much, huh? HOWEVRRR, sometimes, even the most seasoned of saints, find ourselves oscillating by the turbulent waves of adversity and drowning in the depths of desperation and despair. While we all know that trouble doesn’t discriminate, harassing the just as much as the unjust, somehow knowing doesn’t make suffering any less traumatic, especially to those of us who live intentionally striving to walk circumspect fully according to teaching of The Bible.

Perhaps this explains why so many believers prefer to deny rather than acknowledge that occasionally they encounter episodes of depression, shrouded by the wrath of terror, isolation and false humility that causes you to shrink back into a self-imposed exile! But today, allow the WORD OF GOD to emancipate you from the burden of secrecy and shame! Seriously, quiet as it’s kept, U R NOT ALONE!

Remember David, God’s ordained, ‘man after God’s own heart? Well, a closer investigation of many of his most infamous writings reveal several occasions when The Worshiper Psalmist is heard lamenting from the hub of his soul to his True Source of Salvation and Restoration, The Living God!

As we follow God’s Anointed King in The Scriptures, we see David relentlessly bellowing out his distress before his Friend, The LORD Adonai, uninhibited by reputation, shame nor guilt, but fully persuaded that what pleases God the most is genuine Trusting Honesty. David’s intimacy with his Faithful God, was the foundation of his every prayer!

Beloved, instead of running away from God, during those spasmodic seasons (that seem to contradict the prophetic promises to those who’ve placed their personal faith in the redemptive grace of their Heavenly Father), David learned to embrace the value and privilege afforded to him by fastening his hope to God’s Compassionate Heart with the same  ferverent tenacity that he’d so revently clenched during moments of ease!

Hence, like The Psalmist, when we truly understand that earnest-sincere-honest-heart prayer, stirs-up the atmosphere of Heavenreleases favor, guarantees Divine Intervention and opens the door to a way out of no way, prayer will become our first response rather than our last resort. Didjaheardat?

Now, don’t get it twisted by insulting GOD’S OMNISCIENCE with phony, fake emotional repetitions, as if He doesn’t already know your heart. Just follow David’s example, expose the nakedness of your heart, own your emotions and confess “But unto thee have I cried, O Lord; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent thee. Lord, why castest thou off my soul? why hidest thou thy face from me?” Psalm 88:13

Whom have I in heaven but You? My flesh and my heart faileth; but GOD is the strength of my heart and my portion forever! Psalm 73:25-26

Don’t waste another moment of precious time, wallowing in the quick-sand of evil foreboding, fear, threatening desolation and impending dread! Instead of murmuring and complaining, take full advantage of the situation, flip the satanic script! After all, remember The Living Word, “Greater is He Who is abiding on the inside of you than any plot that the enemy can come up with!” (Ref. 1 John 4:4)

TRUTHBTOLD, The Good Shepherd can hardly wait to reconnect with you! When you recommit your life afresh, He causes you to lie down in green pastures, leads you beside the still waters and restores your soul, your focus and strength! (Ref. Psalm 23) Beloved, when we rely upon the Foundation of God’s Inseparable Love by entrusting our whole heart to The Faithful Eternal Lord of Glory, GOD so graciously reaffirms HIS PURPOSE FOR OUR LIVES! GO ‘HEAD NAH, TERRORIZE HELL! #IJS #PRAY4REAL!!

HONESTLY, God only orchestrates those momentary afflictions to build your faith, setting you up for Triumphant Victory. WHAA? DIDJAHEARDAT? AAAAWWW! SO WALK THIS WAY OUT!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

GOOD MORNING FAMILY! GOTTA MOMENT? GREAT GOD ALMIGHTY!

We’re so glad that you’ve joined us in our Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Fasting and Prayer! What an awesome honor and privilege our Heavenly Father has allowed us to leave the daily grind of chaotic drama and slip into His Presence, finding treasures of unspeakable solace that this world knows not of! Shall we enter in together?

Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me! Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me! Melt me, mold me, fill me, use me! Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me… Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on us! Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on us! Melt us, mold us, fill us, use us, Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on us! Lord, I hear of showers of blessings, Thou art scatt’ring full and free! Showers of thristy souls refreshing! Let some drops now fall on me! Even me, Lord, even me! Even me, Lord, even me! Let some drops; Let some drops! Let some drops, now fall on me! Even me, Lord! Even…me!

 

Our Father and our God, here we come again! We come into Your Presence delighted by the earnest expectation that in Your Presence is The Fullness of Joy; at Your Right Hand are pleasure forevermore! We wanna say Thankya for being A Great God! We Thankya for being a Mighty God! We Thankya for being a Good God! Thanka for Loving us so! We Thankya for being our Creator and our God! We Thankya for being the Source and Sustainer of every living creature! None else is Worthy! None else to compare, none else to worship; none else to Save us! None else to Deliver us! None else to Heal us! None else to Keep us! For You ALONE ARE GOD!

Abba Father, we Thankya for waking us up one more today to enjoy the freshness of Your Amazing Grace, Tender Mercy and Lovingkindness and Compassionate Care! We acknowledge that it’s because of Your Faithfulness that we were able to sleep thru last nite and it’s this same Blessedness that will shield, strengthen, comfort and carry us throughout this day! There’s absolutely no doubt that nothing we did or ever could do that would make us deserving of so GREAT A SALVATION! For this cause we bow, in Holy reverence before Your Throne of Majesty! For You Are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords forever and ever! Amen!

Heavenly Father, we pause now, to say Thankya for sending Your Son Jesus to die for us, paying the price to free us from eternal death and hell, forgiving us,  enabling us to be reconciled, engrafted into Your Kingdom as adopted sons and daughters, inheritors of the same rights, privileges and benefits as Your First Begotten, Lord Jesus!

Precious Lord, we will be eternally grateful for Your Unconditional Love that continuously permits You to look beyond our frail, flawed, fickled and sin-lusting flesh to forgive us, cleanse us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, restore us to a right-relationship and planting us firmly in Your Word provide everything that we will ever need pertaining to life and godliness in this world and the world to come!

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 point as we are, You learned what we experience in these earthly tabernacles and therefore You can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! As our Great High Priest, You are uniqely qualified 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!

Sweet Jesus, 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 pain of 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, daily, to find the refuge, peace, 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, we’re forever blessing You for continuing to renew our strength, understanding and power as we open our hearts to You,  depending and relying only on You. And as we yield our being before you, we pray for those who are unsaved, we’re believing You to ignite a spirit of Godly-repentance that they may say “Sincere YES” in their heart and mind that they will have a desire to come running to You today and receive You as their personal Savior and Lord!

Lord, we’re believing You to put a “Committed YES” in the hearts and minds of every backslider today that this will be their day to come back to You and come back to YOUR church where they will be nurtured in The Way of of Holiness, empowered to live the rest of their lives as beacons of Hope to a lost and dying world!

Father, we’re praying that You will touch our brother, touch our sister who has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, high blood pressure, low blood pressure and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake! We come into agreement with your Word and declare that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! And as You are strengthening these, we ask that you also invigorate, encourage and replenish the spirits, minds and bodies of those who are charged to care for their loved ones!

Precious Lord, as always, we pray for every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, trusting that You will release Divine power, Supernatural strength, consolation, health, provision, restoration in marriages, prosperity and protection. We pray also Father, that You preserve us thru every test that You have Sovereignly summoned us to go thru and keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE, convicted and fully-confident that Your appointed time, You shall bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with every reward as You have promised in Your Word.

Abba Father, we lift up our children, our children’s children and by faith, canceling every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them, committing 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 every one of their steps and stops are being ordered by Your eyes!

Father, stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name ! Give them a fresh anointing that will cause them to seek Your Face for an even greater personal, intimate relationship with their Creator God through fellowship of Holy Spirit that they might prove what is the good, perfect and acceptable will of The Lord Jesus!

Father we lift up every spiritual leader, asking an immediate manifestation of that special miracle for each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit. Jesus, 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 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 and thanking You for the government/legislative/judicial/armed forces/public service employee/ health-care providers/educational system and corporate leaders of our nation and this world! Heavenly Father, we’re praying 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’re asking that You endow the hearts of the saints with a peace that surpasses all understanding and the confident expectation that our times are in Your Hands! Regardless of the deceitfulness of this world, You have promised to protect, provide and preserve the righteous who trust and obey Your Word! Give us a sign of Your Goodness, that our enemies may see it and be put to shame. For You, Who searches minds and hearts will continue to shield, help, comfort and save those whose hearts are upright before You!

Father, we believe that every demonic-induced spirit of temptation, addiction, oppression, depression, rejection, self-hate, suicide, fear and failure is already defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness is being released now, in Jesus Name!

Father, we now rejoice in confidence and quietness, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat! We praise You, confidently assured that You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayers as sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy, You will not withhold Your Mercy from us and Your Love and Your Truth is a wall around us!

Abba Father, we revere, honor and praise You now, for we trust and believe that In The Exalted Name of Jesus it is done! Amen 3X and IT IS SO!

FOOLISHNESS?

FOOLISHNESS

 

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, some 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!

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!” 
 
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 ‘worldly sinners’ we’re talking–Church Folks!

But to those of us who yet 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.

Frankly, it’s easy 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 media, either!  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’!
 
To the weary wanderer, The 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 faint of heart, The Cross is The Power and Love of God openly revealed and freely offered in exchange for our rebellion against God! To the spiritually bankrupt, The Cross 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! THE FOOLISHNESS OF PREACHING! So who’s the real fool?

SELAH!

SINGLE VISION

SINGLE VISION

SELAH Daily Devotions!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

EXTREME MAKEOVERS!

EXTREME MAKEOVERS!

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

I beseech you therefore bretheren by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world. But be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable, and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1-2

Didja notice the new 21st Century rave sweeping across the nations of this world. It’s called ‘Makeovers’? We’re no longer stuck with what we got! Everywhere you look there’s someone, somewhere offering you another alternative. The media is bombarding our airways via TV, newspaper, magazines, and now social media the message, that not only do you have the right, but now you have the means to exercise your power of choice.

Technology has opened up all kinds of alternatives. Don’t like your nose? Lips too thin, chin too long? Hips to wide? No longer compatible with your mate/partner/gender–not a problem! If you’ve got the cash, they’ve got the solution! It’s no big deal. Right? They say, everybody’s doing a little nip-tuck thang.  While it’s being applauded by the ‘beautiful people’, it’s not just a ‘Hollywood thing’ anymore — even Mr., Mrs. and Ms. Average have caught on to this thing!

Can you see what’s happening in this world? The focus has become extremely top-heavy! Isn’t it time for you to make some changes in your own life? Is it time to lose some weight? I’m not just talking physically – but spiritually!

If you’re tired of the “same ol’ sameo”, same discontentment, same un-fulfillment, well then you don’t have to settle anymore!  Jus Go IT!

The Word of God offers a great solution to save you time, energy and yes, even money. The benefits are miraculous and guaranteed to last a lifetime, even throughout eternity!

The Master Architect has encapsulated on the pages of 66 Books specific directives to accomplishing extreme spiritual makeovers that don’t merely change your physical appearance but guarantee you will experience genuine enhancement of your character and your lifestyle.

Yes, it’s important to take care of our body. The Scriptures teach us that our body houses the Spirit of The Living God.(Ref. 1 Corinthians 3:16) However, physical exercise has its limitations, while a transformed mind has infinite value and potential with an unlimited guarantee benefits that are out of this world!  The Apostle Paul’s plea to the saints, admonishes us to get radical – BE YE SEPARATE—BE HOLY!

God never intended for His people to fit in with the world. We have been called out to be different, to be transformed and to transform the lives of others. Take life to the extreme and renew our minds by the Word of God.

What’s  makes this opportunity even more  awesome is that everyone is eligible. The only requirement is the willingness to open your whole heart, spirit, soul and body to the One who started that good work in you. (Ref. Philippians 1:6)

Go ahead! Make the decision to take your relationship with the Lord to the extreme.

Are you ready to become a faithful and committed Christian? Are you determined to live the life that others see more of Jesus and less of U?

Great, let’s pray and ask God for an extreme makeover!

Selah!
