THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

SELAH Daily Devotions!

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

We welcome you again to our Weekly Thursdays’ Day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting! As you well know, ‘In times like this’, our souls need to be anchored in prayer to the Only Wise God and Savior of all, The Great High Priest, LORD JESUS CHRIST! Many of us whose hearts are wearied and burdened by the affairs and cares of this ol’ world, welcome every opportunity to run gladly into the Throne Room finding hope-filled rest under the Shadows of The Almighty God! Shall we enter in…

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….BELIEVING THAT GOD IS LISTENING, PRAYING, WITH & FOR US…

Abba Father, we come before You once again; humbled by Your Loving-Kindness we cry out to You In the 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 one more day.Recognizing that it was not because of any goodness of our own that we live, move and have our being, we quickly thank You, from hearts for another opportunity to embrace the abundance of Your Mercy, Grace and 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 humility and sincere gratitude, we acknowledge Your Awemaazing Grace, Compassion and Faithfulness allows You, knowing our frame, YET to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities and minister so generously to every need pertaining to life and godliness!

Abba Father, hear our prayers reverberating from hearts openly offering up precious praise to You, for that Glorious Day when You interrupted our lives, opened up the eyes of our understanding and filled our spirits with the Revelation of Your Son Jesus, allowing us to freely receive Him as our personal Savior and Lord!

Precious Father, we ask You to forgive us of every sin we have committed or omitted willfully and unwillfully in thought, word or deed! 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! By faith, 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!

Daddy, because no man can come to the You except You draw them, we pray that as Your eyes search the hearts of humanity, that You draw and save the lost, quickening The Spirit of Godly-repentance in every heart and mind, beckon them to come today confessing ‘a sincere YES’ to Your Grace, and receive You now as their personal Savior and Lord! We’re believing that You are directing their footsteps, placing and settling them into a local church home where they are nurtured and encouraged to live holy, acceptable and committed to faithful obedience to Your Word! In Jesus Name Amen 3x!

Sweet Jesus, we call every backslider to bow to Your Lovingkindness and return to the fold immediately, put a fresh “committed YES” in their heart and mind and a genuine desire to adhere to the Kingdom Constitution as revealed through diligent study of Your Word! Give each one an earnest-sincere-honest-heart desire to build their personal relationship with You through fellowship and a consistent prayer life to live holy, pleasing and glorifying You before this corruptible, lost and dying world that others may ask the question, ‘What must I do to be saved?”!

Lord, remember our children, our grand/great-grands to a thousand generations! We’re claiming Your Promise to save us and our households! While many of them are not walking with You wholly, 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!

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 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, we thank You for rewarding YOUR servant/leaders who are yet standing on the Wall proclaiming Your Word with POWER, under the Conviction and Anointing of Holy Spirit! Jesus, continue to Grace them to be the FAITHFUL AND TRUE WITNESSES, remnant examples of Your Righteousness in their homes, churches and community that will cause those who come in contact with them to love, trust wholly in You and commit the rest of their lives to serving and glorifying You!

As You have commanded, we pray and thank You for all the leaders of this nation and world. Send direction to them, as they make decisions that affect the future of our lives and our Touch their minds and hearts, visit them in the night, speak to them in dreams and visions and let them know that All POWER BELONGS 2 YOU Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens! Impress upon them that You are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!

Precious Lord Jesus, we’re eternally grateful for the indwelling Presence of Holy Spirit assuring us that YOU ARE THE SOVEREIGN LORD of LIFE and in absolute control of all things. In light of the continuous influx of profound arrogance and illegal/immoral injustices being perpetrated against 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 commit our being unto You, expressing our gratitude because You have promised to yet keep us hidden under The BLOOD! 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! We’re trusting that no weapon that is formed against us shall prosper and every tongue that rises up against Your children shall be condemned!

We confidently speak Your Consoling Peace that surpasses all understanding over our minds, we declare that You are disciplining our thoughts that we may walk circumspectly as disciples of Christ. We put our flesh under subjection to Holy Spirit and resist the hand of the enemy in our lives. We seek You first, asking direction from You and trust You to settle our anxious spirits to be fully persuaded that ‘come what may’ You are well able and willing to save us!

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.

Abba, 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 and beyond this earthl real and 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!

Holy Spirit, equip us to walk fearlessly without intimidation so that every demonic spirit assigned to hinder us from fulfilling the good plans You have for us is disarmed! Break-free those who are being held by mind-paralyzing, mouth-muting captivity to speak the WORD OF TRUTH with Holy boldness and Authority! Lift all those up out of the pits of hopelessness, discouragement, oppression, depression, sexual abuse, spousal abuse, spiritual abuse, physical abuse, low self esteem, self-rejection, self-hatred and empower them to walk into large places 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 THE WORD OF YOUR POWER against the all manner of sickness and disease, the spirit of cancer, brain, lung, throat, kidney, liver, pancreas, blood, breast, bone, prostrate those in chemo therapy, radiation therapy, on dialysis, those awaiting transplants, those enduring what man calls incurable disease such has HIV, Parkinson disease, ALS,alheizmers and autism! We speak wondrous reversal of any damage caused by strokes, kidney failure, heart disease, arthritis, glaucoma and every other eye disease and 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 and lift up those who are lingering on to this life in hospice facilities asking for salvation and sweet transition! We pray for the down-trodden and ask that every bowed down head to be strengthen 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, release unexpected Favor of God; restore marriage, open new jobs, promotions, doors of opportunities for entrepreneurs, debt cancellations, loan approvals, unexpected financial blessings as You are releasing a Double Portion of Your Anointing, Spirit of Love, Power, Sound-mindness and Purpose into the lives of Your people 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 victoriously with unspeakable-joy and bowing reverently 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 seal this prayer with Holy Alleleujah! Amen 3X!

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, RUN, TELL EVERYBODY THAT JESUS LOVES YOU, YOU & YOU! #FRONTLINEMINISTRY

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

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!

THE PATH 2 GLORRAAA!

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!

WHATZ N YOUR HEART?

WHAT'S IN UR HEART

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

And you shall remember the whole way that the Lord your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that he might humble you, testing you to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments or not. And he humbled you and let you hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that he might make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Deuteronomy 8:2-3 ESV

 

We’ve all been there! At some point in this journey, we’ve found ourselves, barraged by seemingly insurmountable odds stacked against us, huh? There I was, sitting there unsuccessfuly attempting to make a 911 connection to The Throne Room. This one, was a time sensitive—not later—but I need YOU right nah—Lord situation! As my eyes skimmed over to my laptop and I realized that somehow it was in the middle of running an unscheduled scan! Immediately, I understood what the Holy Spirit was trying to do in me.

Remember when you thought you knew, but didn’t really know? Exactly! It’s during these moments of mental confusions and conflicting emotions that we need the aid of Holy Spirit. According to Isaiah 11:2, no one but The Spirit of Truth and Wisdom, can scan the the inner most chambers of the human heart, assess the situation, identify the dangerous infectious viral components, quarantine and eliminate them before they’re able to contaminate our heart’s drive! WOW, and He was doing this way before Bill Gates or Steve Job! Awemaazing, huh? 

With that being said, once again I had to admit that before I could make a right connection with Jesus, I had to clear the line! No, God was not saying that my issue was not valid, but that there was an even more life-threating situation that demanded immediate attention. There was something crucial going on in my heart that I was not willing to confront and deal with at the root! Sometimes we do that, you know? We like to justify our rebellion by playing the blame game. “Lord, if they hadn’t….then I never would’ve …” But God wasn’t buying none of that!

There’s no denying that there’s something embedded in the DNA of humanity that resists repentance.  C’mon, don’t shout me down nah! #ijs!!!

It’s difficult for us to acknowledge that we’re at fault. It’s a whole lot easier for us to judge others by their actions and ourselves by our good intentions, huh? But God is not intimidated by our self-deceiving, willful, prideful hearts NOR IS HE IMPRESSED BY OUR CHURCH TESTIMONIES!

God strategically sets up unscheduled heart scans to illuminate potentially critial viruses that left untreated could result in the hardening of the arteries causing damaging blockages. For instance, that spirit of jealosy, envy, anger, resentment, bitterness and yessss the unforgiveness haboring in the crevices of your heart against someone, who probably doesn’t even know it! You know how fake the saints can be sometimes. Problem is, chances are before the end of the day, you’ll probably gonna need somebody to forgive you for something! The scripture is clear on this, if you don’t forgive others, neither will Your Heavenly Father forgive you your faults! (Ref. Matthew 6:15) OMG! Kinda sheds a different light on it, huh?

Beloved, I don’t know about you, but I NEED THE MERCY AND GRACE OF GOD, ALL DAY…EVERY DAY! Don’t look at me with that tone of voice, Y’all know I ain’t by myself!

I know it’s not always easy, especially when you’re the one who’s been hurt. But considering the repercussions, sounds to me like, by GOD’S Grace, whatever the offense, we just need to release it, drop it, leave it and let God handle it! God always knows everything about everything –and we don’t!

SO, WHAT’S REALLY IN YOUR HEART? #GOD REALLY KNOWS!

Abba 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! Father, 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!
