GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? Good God Almighty!

 

Once again, we are delighted that you’ve joined us in our Weekly Corporate Fast and Prayer! In times like these, it’s incumbent upon those who believe in the WORD and WORTH of prayer, to band together, entreating the Face of our Lord, interceding on behalf of all of our brothers and sisters whose lives are being ravaged by unimaginable test, trials and devastating circumstances! We recognize that GOD, being A FAITHFUL and Compassionate Savior, will never be without a witness in the Earth! WE continue to look to the hills, from whence our help comes as we go before HIS THRONE together! AMEN 3X!

 

When I come into His Presence, I humble myself! I lift up both my hands, and I begin to worship Him! I worship Him! For all that He has done for me; redeemed and set me free. And because, jus because HE IS GOD!

 

Heavenly Father, we come before You King Jesus, first thanking You for blessing us to see one more day! We recognize it’s only because of Your Faithful Love that we’re able to embrace this opportunity and enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace! We’re thankful that because You, knowing our frame, continue looking beyond our human faults,frailties, fickleness and iniquities and yet You minister to every one of our need! We humbly acknowledge You as The God of all Life, of our Salvation, our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision!

Sweet Holy Spirit, as we embrace the day ahead, Holy Spirit, help us to be ever mindful of Your benevolence, and maintain an attitude of all consuming gratitude as we’re trusting You to keep us safe from all hurt, harm and danger. Clear our minds so that we can hear from You and cleanse our hearts that we may deny ourselves, and commit to do Your Will.

Precious Lord, as we look 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!

Holy Father, please help us to not whine and whimper over things we have no control, and let us show our gratitude that things are as well as they are by faithfully adhering to Your Word!And when this world seems to close in on us, please help us to follow the example that our Lord and Savior has given us to and slip away to our secret quiet place to pray. When we’re pushed beyond our limited abilities, let Prayer be our 1st response! Give us the mind to bow before Our Heavenly High Priest, casting our cares upon the Only Wise God and Savior! We know than when we do that our hearts are comforted and our souls are calmed by the reality that even when we can’t find the words to pray, You’re yet able to listen to our hearts, interpreting every moan, groan and sigh of our spirits and release relief to our souls!

Abba Father, bless us that we may be a blessing to others. Keep us strong that we may help the weak. Keep us uplifted that we may have words of encouragement for others. Help us to be an effective witness and to pray for all who don’t believe that You sent Jesus, not to condemn us, but to convict us and to free us from the power, pain and penalty of Sin.

 

Precious Jesus, as we pray for Your children everywhere, for every family member and friends, we’re believing and decreeing that a Spirit of Peace, Unity, Love, Hope and Joy is being released in our homes, places of employment, schools, communities, nation and churches! We believing that Your Divine Favor is being poured out upon everyone who needs You and their faith is rising to a level that they shall be faithful and obedient to Your Word! We pray for all those who have a mind to sacrifice their will on The Altar of Your Will, expecting that You will reward us with supernatural abundance in every area of their lives, In Jesus Name!

We thank You for hearing the hearts of those who have never accepted Your Son Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord! We are thankful that Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart now with a “SINCERE YES” that they shall come to You ,humbled by Your Lovingkindness, in obedience to Your call and are now receiving Your Mercy and Grace to Save and claim them as Your Child. We Thank You for leading and guiding them to a 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.

We pray for all those who have walked away from You! Father, arrest them In The Holy Ghost, convict them to declare a fresh “COMMITTED YES” to Your Purpose and Plan for their lives! Revive the Revelation that You Alone are The Hope of This Life and The Life to come and make today their day to come back to You and unite them to YOUR church with a determination to submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, learn to love and live their lives walking to please You First!

Father, remember our children, our grands and great-grand children! We declare and decree that TODAY every curse that’s been ordered against their lives is overruled, canceled and every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them is aborted now! As we commit them into Your Providential care, realizing that You also have a Plan and Purpose for their lives, we have the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are being ordered by Your All-seeing Eyes! Therefore, no weapon that’s formed against them shall prosper and every tongue that speaks against them is already condemned! We speak The Peace of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies, releasing a Spirit of Love, Holiness, Wholeness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny, in Jesus Name it is so!

Heavenly Father, according to Your WORD, we pray for the leaders of our nation, government, legislative, judicial, corporate education, financial, education, publlic service, healthcare institutions and the world! 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 repent, 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 lift up every Apostle, Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher, Prophet, Missionary, Deacon, auxiliary leader/member, choir director/member, praise team and musician, usher, nurse, driver, parking attendant and custodial worker! 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!

Lord, we know that You have cautioned us, to not look at the temporary things but to focus our hearts on the eternal, yet You know the frailness of our flesh, and how easily we’re provoked, tempted to become overwhelmed by the cares of this world! You know that every day is not the same and sometimes our days are spent beneath clouds of evil forebodings, while our nites are plagued with restlessness, despondency and hopelessness! Lord, You know whose hearts are burdened with the pressures of this life, wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness and disease, financial debt, marital issues, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions, insecurities and grief, You know the hearts of the widows, the caretakers, the downcast who have born the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through and now find themselves outcast and neglected! Lord, give them sweet Peace, Comfort and Confidence to know that their labor is never in vain!

Lord, save, heal and deliver speedily all who are crying out to you, seeking Your Face at this very moment! Give us to know that because we belong to You, we are never too far that You can’t see us, reach us, and shield us from anything that the devil would rail against us. Help us to understand that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower, and those that run into it and are saved! Heavenly Father, we thank You for listening to the hearts of everyone whose spirits are united and fervently praying with us!

Father, because You have committed Your Word towards us, no trouble, test or trial can come near us, except You have allowed it to train us to live each day solely depending on You. We thank Holy Spirit, for fully persuading us of Your Providential Presence and Power to turn everything around to work in our favor and to bring about exuberant testimonies and praises of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory!

Abba Father, we’re asking You for a Divine Intervention of Your Supernatural Power, Strength, Health, Wholeness, Encouragement, Provision, Prosperity and Protection! Keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully confident that Christ in Us Is The Hope of Glorraa!

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! Because of The Lord’s Mercy, we are not consumed and The Spirit of Love, Power and a Sound-mind and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people, in Jesus Name!

Lord, while there are so many other things that we have yet to mention, we’re trusting that as You search our hearts, You are not just able, but You’re willing to do anything that we ask or think according to You Perfect Will, we’re believing You to fix it, Jesus, as only You can, in Jesus Name!

Wonderful Father, as we patiently wait in confidence and quietness, we rejoice in hope, trusting wholly 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! Therefore, we thank You and seal this Prayer In The Holy Ghost, for WE KNOW THAT IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X and a HOLY HALLELUJAHHH!

Beloved, every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, CARE ENUFF 2 SHARE WITH SOMEBODY WHO NEEDS 2KNO THAT JESUS LOVES AND CARES ABOUT EVERYBODY! #ijs! #FRONTLINEMINISTRY!

SELAH Devotions!

 

Good morning Family! GOTTA MOMENT? Ooh Glorraa!

Welcome to a new day! We’re excited that you have joined us in our Thursdays’ Day of Corporate Fasting & Prayer! Once again, we appreciate the opportunity and privilege to entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest, pouring out our hearts desires, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. We know that He delights in our embracing Him in earnest expectation, confident that He Rules Forever by His Power is able to save and deliver us from any of life’s maladies! Shall we pray?


GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS, O GOD OUR FATHER! There is no shadow of turning with Thee. Thou changest not Thy compassions they fail not. As Thou hast been Thou forever will be. Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see And all I have needed Thy hand hath provided. Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me…

Our Father God, Creator of Heaven and Earth, we come before You humbled by Your Loving-Kindness, Your Grace and Mercy, eternally grateful for one more opportunity to behold The Glory of Your Presence! We know that it’s  only Your Sovereign Wisdom and Strength that has allowed us to live today! We thank You for revealing to us such wondrous treasures once hidden from our understanding, when we walked surrounded by darkness, when we walked as dead men in the earth without a God on our side!

Abba Father, because of You we know to cherish this day and not take it for granted as if we have a right to be alive! Because of You, we now live, move and have our being! Today, we come, with hearts rejoicing, hands lifted up and lips forever praizing You! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For byYour Mighty Hand You have preserved us and kept our feet from slipping!


Daddy, we thank You for being God of our Salvation and Lord of our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision. We’re thankful that You, knowing our frame, continue to shower upon us such faithful compassion; looking beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities, seeing, yet ministering to all of our real need!

Because Your Ways are higher than our ways and Your Thoughts are far beyond our capacity to understand, we must bless You for being a forgiving and an understanding God! You daily load us with all that we need pertaining to life and godliness. We must never presume Your Graciousness, therefore we bow our hearts to You, praying “Abba Father, forgive me now for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to Your Heart.”i We have Your Blessed Assurance, that as we confess our sin, You are Faithful and Just to forgive, pardon and restore us back into rightful fellowship with You, we thank You now , in The Precious Name of Jesus!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we thank You for teaching us to see sin through Your eyes, acknowledge it as evil wickedness and rebellion against the Creator, Giver, Stainer of All Life and Lover of our very souls Who quickens our spirit to repent immediately! For this cause, we gladly present our spirit, soul and body as a living holy sacrifice to be used for Your Greatest Glory!

Precious Lord, because no man can come to the Father except you draw them, we intercede on behalf of every unsaved soul, asking You to ignite the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their heart and in their mind that they will come today asking, confessing a“sincere Yes” to Your Amazing Gift of Grace and receive You as their personal Lord and Savior! We’re believing You to Divinely orchestrate their footsteps settleling them into a local church home where they will be welcomed, nurtured and encouraged to lived the rest of their lives as a witness to others who are yet unsaved!

Lord, we lift up every backslider, praying that You will put a fresh “committed YES” in the heart and mind! 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, denying the selfish dictates of their flesh determined to walk in a manner that pleases and glorifies You to this corruptible, lost and dying world that others may ask the question, ‘What must I do to be saved?”!

Father, touch all whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, kidney disease, heart/lung disease and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. Because You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever, we believe that even as You walked this earth healing all who were sick, feeble and the lame,  You’re Well Able to do the same right now! We stand on Your promises, trusting that byYour stripes we’re already redeemed and healed and the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Dear Lord, remember every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today; release Divine Power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity, and Protection. Preserve each and everyone of us thru the tests that we must go thru and keep us Peaceful, constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident 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.

Father,  protect all those who are threatened by the pathway of impending storms that are approaching their communities, cover them under Your Wings, and let them be a living testimony of Your Greatness as Ruler and Master of the storms, winds, and waves both spiritually and naturally.

Lord, remember our children, our grand/great-grands! We’re claiming Your Promise to save us and our households! While many of them are not walking with You wholly as You’ve commanded, we trust that You have an appointed time for their deliverance from the tempters destructive plans, plots, schemes and pits! We believe that the SAME MERCY AND PATIENCE that so generously allowed us to be here today is covering our legacy, protecting them from being victimized by the Satanic influences that are rampant in this world!

We bind every seducing spirit that seeks to entrap them thru the ungodly soul ties that so easily besets this unsuspecting generation! Therefore, we commit them into Your Hand of Righteousness, realizing that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too, with the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely-orchestrated by Your Eyes! We speak The Peace of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies, releasing Your Love, Holiness, Wholeness, Hope, Confidence and Excellence, equipping and inspiring them to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Lord, we lift up everyone going thru temporary seasons of sorrow and grief, victimized by institutionalized racism, tormented by Spirits of fear, abandonment, loneliness, rejection, disappointment and failure, broken marriages, divorce, frustrated because of wayward children, unrealized expectations, lost of employment, bankruptcy and unjust illegal incarcerations! We plead the Blood of Jesus over every demonic thought, spirits of anxiety, oppression and confusion! You are not the author of these satanic thoughts and feelings, but You have given all who have put our personal trust in The Righteousness of Your Son Jesus, a Spirit of Love, Peace, Joy and a Sound Mind!

Sweet Holy Spirit, remember every spiritual leader as we speak LIFE,LIGHT, STRENGTH, ENCOURAGEMENT, CONFIDENCE, ASSURANCE, RESTORATION OF HOPE-FILLED- ENTHUSIASTIC-ANTICIPATION and TRUST into all those who are yet believing for immediate manifestation and the fulfillment of every miracle and vision that You’ve placed into their hearts! We REBUKE, BIND AND COMMAND spirits of hindrance, delay, low-self esteem, self-doubt, failure, competitiveness, discouragement, disappointment, confusion, slothfulness, tiredness, weariness, being unappreciated and misunderstood, all those threatened by spirits of suicide MUST LEAVE NOW!

LORD, reward YOUR servant/leaders who are yet standing on the Wall proclaiming Your Word with POWER, under the Conviction and Anointing of Holy Spirit! Grace them to be the FAITHFUL AND TRUE WITNESSES, BOLD remnant 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!

Heavenly Father, we stand in the gap for our nation and the world! We lift those who’ve You allowed to lead in governments, corporate, legislative, judicial, financial, education, public safety and services and institutions!Touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in the midnight hours; give them dreams and visions to let them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens see and know the intents and the deeds of everyone’s hearts and while they may think they’ve escaped the punishment of biased-parasitism of man’s justice, they shall not be able to flee the righteous retribution levied by The Eternal Judge! Alert them that He Who Rules over the circle of the earth is keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!

Abba, 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! We declare and decree that every Spirit of trauma, hatred, racism, evil, rape, incest, molestation, physical and emotional abuse, adultery,  bullying, murder, suicide, infidelity, betrayal, abandonment, rejection, hopelessness, unworthiness, stress, insomnia, restlessness, confusion, bi-polar, schizophrenia, poverty, lack, double-minded, fear, anxiety IS BOWING NOW AS WE COMMAND IT TO GO RIGHT NOW! We release life, love, light, salvation, deliverance, health and healing, hope, wholeness, restoration, righteousness peace, unity and joy in The Holy Ghost to all who are reading this prayer, in the Majestic Name that’s above every other name that can be named, JESUS we pray!

Eternal Father of ALL Glory, we know that there are many other situations and concerns that we’ve failed to mention, nevertheless as we close our prayer, we’re  relying upon Holy Spirit’s intercession and trusting You to send peace where there is confusion, love where there is hate and unity where there is division. Bless the fatherless and motherless. 

Father we wait in confidence and quietness, depending upon You to keep us in Your Care, we’re rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our 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 prayers and forgives transgressions! Holy Father, because You have chosen us to live in 4EVER in Your House, we shout with exceeding Joy unto The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your Face shines upon us, You are making Your Will, Ways and Salvation known among all nations for You Rule, Reign and Guide Justly!

Father, believing that before we ask, it’s already done, we thank You NOW! We seal this prayer, In The Exalted Name of Jesus with a Holy Hallelujah and Amen 3X!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Good Morning my Precious Bros. And Sistas! GOTTA MOMENT?

Didjaknowthat the only reason u r able to read this post is because Our Heavenly Father has blessed u to be alive one more day? And for that, please join us in exalting The Glorious Name of Jesus! As is our custom on Thursdays, we encourage you to join us in our weekly day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting between 6:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Is there any among you sick, weak, afflicted, ill-treated or faint-hearted, then as James 5:13 instructs, let’s pray!

Great is Thy Faithfulness, O God our Father! There is no shadow of turning with Thee. Thy changes not; Thy compassions fail not; as Thou hast beenThou forever wilt be! Morning by morning new mercies I see; ALL I HAVE NEEDED THY HAND HATH PROVIDED—GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS, LORD UNTO ME!

 

Abba Father, today, it is with exceeding joy that we entreat Thy Seat of Mercy! Trusting confidently that You have afforded us this awesome honor and privilege not because we deserve it, but based solely on Your Loving-Kindness towards us, that draws us into Your All Emcompassing Presence. Sweet Jesus, we thankya for Your Faithful Obedience to please The Heart of The Father by sacrificing Your Life in our stead, that we might become Sons of The True and Living God! And for this cause, we bow in humble gratitude, fully aware that as we come before You, empty and void of anything that would warrant such awesome graciousness, but because Your Righteousness we are now the beneficiary of All that You are in the Eyes of God!

Jesus, we know that You already know everything about every single one of us, because You are Omnisient 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 can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! Therefore You, as our Great High Priest, 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! We ask that You hear our hearts confessing our sins, known and unknown,  that You will apply Your Blood over us, forgiving and cleansing us from all unrighteousness.

Lord, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word, sometimes, it’s difficult to over-ride the noises of the pestilences, 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 finding 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 bless You for continuing to renew our strength, understanding and power as we open our hearts to You, by depending and relying only on You. And as we humbly yield our entire being before You, we pray for those who have yet to receive The Saving Grace of Jesus, believing You to ignite a spirit of Godly-repentance that drives them to come today, surrendering their lives to You, confessing  out of their mouths “a sincere YES”  flowing from hearts that seeking a personal relationship with The Only Savior and Lord of Life

Sweet Holy Spirit, we ask You to put a “FRESH COMMITTED  YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider so that this will be their day to come back to You and come back to YOUR  local church that they may be accepted, restored, nurtured, encouraged and committed to live the rest of their lives according to Your Will and Ways.

Father, please touch our brother, touch our sister who has been afflicted by any 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 envigorate, encourage and replenish the spirits, minds and bodies of those who are charged to care for their loved ones!

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, prosperity and protection.

We pray also Father, that You preserve them thru the tests that they must go thru and keep them constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that at Your pre-determined appointed time, You shall bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word.

Father  God, 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 Power and Anointing of Holy Spirit. Continue to open doors and make straight the  paths before them; bind every spirit that’s been assigned to hinder them from fulfiling every vision and dream that You’ve placed in their hearts and minds! Send those to lift their arms, encourage and undergird them as they seek to be a blessing to those that You’ve charged them to shepherd!

Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to equip them by Your Grace to be the living 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 their lives serving You!

Father, once again, we come lifting up our children, our grandchildren and great-grand children! By faith we rebuke and cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! We’re committing them into Your Providential care, covered by The Blood of Jesus! We acknowledge that from their Mothers’ wombis, You have a plan and purpose for their lives; therefore, we have the Blessed Assurance that their steps  and stops are being ordered by Your eyes and they shall NOT DIE prematurely VUT THEY SHALL LIVE  A LONG LIFE to declare the wonderous works of The LORD!

Precious Lord, stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name with a fresh desire and passion 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!

As You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying for  President Trump and his family! Surround him with advisors and counselors who have a holy reverence and  can’t resist the directive and instructions of Holy Spirit!  We rebuke ungodly influence assigned over this region and we bind every transmission of evil, wicked and corrupt communication surrounding this nation, as we declare and decree that no weapon that is formed against this nation shall prosper.

Sweet Holy Spirit, endow the hearts of your people with a peace that surpasses all understanding and the confident expectation that because we’re citizens of Your Kingdom, regardless of the mass deceitfulness of this world, our times are in Your Hands and You have promised to protect, provide and preserve the righteous who trust and obey Your Word!

We ask that you continue to open the eyes of understanding so that Your people are not easily deceived by those who would desire to enslave us to everything that which You have delivered us from.

Abba Father, help us to understand that salvation only comes to those who trust in the Name of Your First Begotten Son, Jesus ALONE as the Only Power to save us. Give us a sign of Your Goodness, that our enemies may see it and be put to shame. For You, O Lord who searches minds and hearts will continue to shield, help, comfort and saveYour servants whose hearts are upright before You.

Father, we believe that every demonic-induced spirit of temptation, addiction, 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! We declare and decree that all those who are pregnant with evil and conceives trouble shall give birth to disillusionment. Anyone who digs a hole and scoops it out shall fall into the pit he has made and the trouble he causes on others shall recoil on himself and every violent scheme that he devises against God’s Elect shall come down on his own head.

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

Abba Father, we thank You for listening to our prayer and because You are listening, WE KNOW AND BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED THOSE THINGS, OFFERED BEFORE YOU, ACCORDING TO YOUR WILL! THEREFORE, we bow in holy reverence, honor and praise with Thanksgiving! For we trust and believe that it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen & Halleleujah 3X and It Is So!

BE ENCOURAGED!

We thank You for being The God of our Salvation, The ONLY HOPE of our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision.

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!

THE PATH 2 GLORY

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 
James 4:7

 
Yep! Ain’t no getting around it, because it’s still The Eternal Word of God, huh? I’m talking about that pesty-provoking-pressure-on-our-pleasure, five letter word “pride”! As the ol’ skool preacher would say, ‘I jus lost ¾ of my church’! LOL!

Those of us who’ve been saved more than 25 years undoubtedly have seen subtle (and not so subtle) transitions taking place in the Christian Community!  I’m referring to the greater emphasis being levied on the side of accumulating creature comforts rather than developing Christian character#Don’tshoutmedownnah!

While, there’s no denying that our Heavenly Father delights in the prosperity of His children, He distinctly distinguishes His Prosperity Plan from the system of this world, by including ‘even as your soul prospers, huh? (Ref. 3 John 1:2)

Of course, we know that God’s Ways are not ours and we’re eternally grateful that His thoughts are not like our, huh? Yet, many a wandering wayfaring person has been drawn down to the altar, enticed by the lure of a prolific prophetic preacher, promising peace and prosperity. Although this message has elements of doctrinal truth, upon closer examination,  oftimes it can dilute the integrity of basic biblical foundation! Hence, leaving some believers with lop-side expectations and ill-prepared to walk out their journey of faith.

The New Millennium Church has adapted to The Burger King mentality that says, ‘If I can’t have it my way, then I’ll hit the highway’! While that attitude may work at a fast-food chain, it won’t get you off the run-way in the Kingdom of God. The last time I caught a breath, Jesus was still LORD! Therefore, He has the right to expect loyalty, faithfulness, commitment and obedience from those He created!

God knows that it’s difficult for flesh to be humble! That’s why HE put these flesh-killing scriptures in The Book! Yall know, flesh wants to set up its own kingdoms and not submit to anything or anyone. Flesh wants to dominate; to be in charge; have its own way; be right; be the best and not ever admit that ‘I’m wrong, not perfect, it’s my fault; I need help, forgiveness…or I don’t know what to do!

Flesh wants folk to come to us; look up to us; be admired and yes even envied! Flesh wants to be first in line following the Apostle, Bishop and the Pastors. Flesh wants to sit on the front row so it can be noticed—to go higher, IN THE LORD, of course!

We like to quote the scripture, ‘resist the devil and he’ll flee from you’, right? However, more often than not, we leave out the first part, ‘submit yourself to GOD...and then you’ll have the power to resist the devil’! OMG, does it really say dat? Indeed! In the Kingdom, the way up is down!

God says, ‘humble yourself’BUT–IF YOU CAN’T, HE WILL HELP YOU! Chances are He’ll raise up a devil, a situation, a problem, a need, a national threat, a global economic collapse! Sometimes, He’ll allow trouble to come knocking at your front door, your church, job, wallet to get your attention long enough for you to humble yourself and have to pray! God knows that as long as we’re living high-on-the-hogwe’re prone to spiritual amnesia and assume that He’s okay playing second fiddle! NOT!

The Kingdom of Heaven has it’s own stimulus plan and it ain’t about to change! The strength and power of God’s Covenant relationship with His people is based on both  parties involved doing what they’ve sworn to do. The position of GOD is permanently filling space and time! Remember, HE IS GOD & U R NOT!

It’s a highway to Heaven, however you’ve got to be willing to take the low road 2 get there! As we yield our ENTIRE lives to GOD’ S WILL, WE SHALL REAP THE KING’S ETERNAL REWARDS! #FAITHFUL OBEDIENT GRATITUDE  #DIDJAHEARDAT? YEP! THAT’S THE PATH TO GLORAAAA!

THE BENEFITS OF OBEDIENCE!

THE BENEFITS OF OBEDIENCE

SELAH DEVOTIONS!

 

For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the Lord abhorreth. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. Psalm 10:3-4
He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity. His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. Psalm 10:6-7

“Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee. ..These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes. Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.” Psalm 50:15-17, 21-23

 

I know that a lot of folk prefer to escape THE Truth in favor of the opinions of  the self-proclaimed ‘geniuses’ of this world’s culture, who ascribe to the more palatable theory of “no absolutes”! Nonetheless, the rest of us who have lived on both sides of The Cross, have concluded adamantly, “Let EVERY MAN BE A LIAR, AND GOD BE THE TRUTH! Okay,  as one of my favorite ol’ skool Preachers loves to say, “Nah, run down the aisle on dat!”

TRUTHBTOLD, everyday we’re faced with more and more evidence that the ideology of this present world is destined for a direct-hit collision with the reality that there is a SUPER BEING WHO IS, WAS AND WILL FOREVER BE in ABSOLUTE CONTROL OF THE COURSE OF THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE OF ALL OF HIS CREATION, INCLUDING HUMANITY! BELIEVETH THOU THIS? #ijs!!!!

While this truth is often disputed by those who favour the more liberating “I’m the Master of my own fate” persuasion, THERE YET REMAINS A REMNANT OF US WHO ARE FULLY PERSUADED THAT there will be no atheist in Hell!  #Don’t shout me down nah!!!

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. (Romans 1:21-22)

The arrogance of wickedness goes deeper than absolute unbelief! Rooted in the folly of his own imagination is the concept that God isn’t paying attention to what people are doing, therefore he’s getting away with every and anything his own evil heart desires! In other words, they foolishly assume that there ARE NO CONSEQUENCES 2 PAY! #WOW!

TRUST2KNO, nothing EVRRR catches GOD by surprise!The Ancient of Days watches patiently, examining and knowing the hearts of mankind, knows them that are HIS! God is not moved nor is He mocked by those who offer up lip service but have no intention of honoring His commands with faithful obedience!
However, those of us who yet cling to THE WORD, as if our very life depends upon HIM, have the Blessed Assurance that as we walk daily surrendering our hearts, minds and actions to the Righteous Commands of a Holy Heavenly Father, have an ETERNALHOPE that reaches far beyond this world!

When we find ourselves in the middle of trouble, we call upon Our Faithful Friend Who hears us and responds with Deliverance, Righteousness, Security, Peace, Fulfillment and Joy…GUARANTEEING VICTORY, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, FOR US AND GREATER GLORY FOR HIS NAME SAKE! #SERIOUSLY!

 
BUT FOR THE WICKED, WHO CHOOSE 2 FORGET GOD OR CHANGE HIS UNCORRUPTABLE GLORY 2 REFLECT THE IMAGE OF CORRUPTABLE MAN , IT IS NOT SO! HE REBUKES THEM AND LAUGHS AT THEIR DESTRUCTION! “but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he sees that his day is coming. (Psalm 37:13)

I know ‘it ain’t none of my business’, U gotta right to live anyway U wanna, right? #ijs…THERE ARE BENEFITS 4 OBEDIENCE! #ETERNAL LIFE! #NOW&LATER!

SELAH!

A NEW DAY!

A NEW DAY

SELAH Daily Devotions!

Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth, Shall ye not know it?   I will even make a way in the wilderness, And rivers in the desert?  Isaiah 43:19

Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 4:6

 
 

I still remember when I would actually curse the breaking forth of the morning. For me, it only meant another day filled with excruciating physical pain, sadness, discouragement and disappointment–just like all the others.

Looking back, it’s doesnt take a lotta stretching of the imagination to figure out who had secretly planted those deceitful diabolical thoughts into my mind, okay?  But that was B.C. (Before Christ came into my life)!!!!  But by The Grace of God, today I stand as a living testimony to reality of The New-Life-Giving Power of God! (2 Corinthians 5:17)
 
Yessirreee Bob, this ol’ gurl’s gotta  new attitude!  Coming from an extremely negative environment, I thought that this was just the way of the world. However, once I accepted Jesus into my life, I learned that God’s Salvation’s Benefit Package included a completely different attitude, faith!  Yeah Baby, this new faith attitude is the heritage of the saints, the children of God! 
 
Once you recognize that you’re really in a personal relationship with the True and Living God, it’s actually possible for you to embrace each day with  joy, hopeful anticipation and confident assurance that this is a great day because God made it! Seriously,  it’s a new day! #WHOKNU?
 
Before you open up your eyes or your feet hit the floor, you have the power to dictate your day.  You can say,‘Good Lord, it’s morning already!’ or ‘Good Morning, Lord’. You choose whether to approach your day with joyful celebration and gratitude for  another opportunity to behold The Beauty of The Lord, experience God’s Glory, Grace and Praise for what He’s already done, is doing now and for what He is about to do or you can claim fear, discouragement and defeat by murmuring and complaining!
 
Don’t get it twisted! Even as a disciple of Christ, everyday is not the same! Howevrrrr,  each day you’re becoming new as you grow in the Wisdom, Knowledge and the Grace of God! That’s right Saints, the new you makes the decision to enjoy this wonderful gift of present by refusing to allow past sins, past failures, past wounds and past disappointments, to keep you from moving forward into this brand new day! Didjaheardat?
 
The Ol’ Saints used to sing, ‘Everyday with Jesus is sweeter than the day before!”  Sometimes, we think that’s because things were a whole lot different, as my Granddaughter Sadie says , ‘Bacndaday’! Don’t fool yourself, they lived through some very distressing times. Remember, The Great Depression!  Yet, amidst their adversity, they remained convinced that God was well able to keep them thru and to bring them out of anything that would unfold during a day!
 
When Jesus is your Shepherd, it doesn’t matter what happened yesterday.  God empowers each new day with new mercy, new grace and new faith to believe that today is the first day of the best of my life…because today is MY new day !

Soooooo, I decree and declare that Today, I have the mind of Christ! I believe that God is making a way out of no way, for ME! Today, I believe that God is up to something that He’s never done before. Today, I fully expect to be strengthened, delivered and re-joyed! Today is another chance for me to do better and become more because today is another opportunity to get closer to Jesus!

Now if that doesn’t jumpstart your day, you better check your vitals and make sure you’re still living! OOOHHH GLORRRAAAAA!

HEY YALL, TRUST2KNO…LIFE GOES BETTER WITH CHRIST! O HAPPY EVERYDAY!  IT’S A NEW DAY!

SELAH!
