THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

SELAH DEVOTIONS!

GM FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? HALLELUJAHHH!

We thank you for joining with us in our weekly Corporate Thursday’s Prayer and Fasting! We’re grateful that our Great High Priest has so graciously invited us to come boldly before His Majestic Throne to release our cares, finding relief, compassion and hope-fill restoration from all of life’s woes! Let’s enter in to His Gates with Thanksgiving and into His Court with praiz and bless His Holy Name…

God has always stood by my side; He has always been my guide! When my friends walk away and turn back on me, He stood right by my side! Always (Always)! He ; never left me alone y’all (Always) He has always stood by my side! Whatever I need I just pray, ’cause I know the Lord would make a way! YES, He STOOD RIGHT BY MY SIDE..YES! YESSSS! YYYEEESSSS…YES! YESSS; YYYEEESSSS LORD….

Eternal God, our Father! The Awesome Creater, Ruler and Sustainer of The Heavens and The earth, we come before You now rejoicing in the Awesomeness of Your Loving-kindness and tender Mercy! We know that it was for no good of our own that You have awakened us to one more day, giving us the activities our limbs, a right mind and a heart to seek Your Face for all that we stand in need of today. We thank You, Precious Father for watching over us as we slept unhindered by the evil forces lurking around us, restly solely in Your Promise to never leave nor forsake us! We thank You for opening the eyes of our understanding enabling us to see Your Glory in the Face of Your Son Jesus in whom we yet live, move and have our very being!

We delight in the honor and privilege bestowed upon us who profess faith in The ONLY Redeeming Blood of Jesus for forgiveness of all our sin; giving us access to such Amazing Grace and Heritage that’s allotted to us who have accepted this free Gift of Eternal Salvation! Now, unto Thee we lift up our souls, confident that as we continue to open up our hearts, minds, spirits, souls and bodies to Your Divine Will, Purpose and Process You will lead and guide us into all Truth that we might learn to trust You, with our whole hearts, obey You and follow Your instructions, delighting in Your Ways that The Light of Your Glory may be manifested thru us to a dark, lost and dying world!

We thank You Lord Jesus for being Faithful to Your Father, even to death on The Cross, making A WAY out of no way to convicted sinners such as I to be saved, cleansed and restored back to our Holy Father! We thank You, Holy Spirit for breaking-up our stony rebellious sin lusting hearts causing us to be convinced that while we were born in sin, it was never The Father’s Will that any man perish but that all should come to repentance, yielding our entire lives over to the Mercy that’s been offered through the life, death, burial and Resurrected Lord of Life, our Messiah Jesus Christ. Confident that no man can come to The Father except thru Jesus, we ask that You prick the hearts of those who’re yet blinded by the deceitful, diabolical devices of our common Adversary, Satan! Let today be the day that The Light of Glory pierces the darkness of their soul, giving way to The Only Hope of Salvation and Everlasting Light which causes them to cry out from a “sincere heart” “What must I do to be saved?” thereby they will confess with their mouths and belief in their hearts that You have heard their prayer and affirmed their “YES LORD!” and responded with Compassion, Grace and Mercy! We thank You for ordering their steps to the place that You’ve ordained in The Body of Christ where they shall be embraced with Love, Acceptance and Joy by their brothers and sisters in Christ to begin their new Life as Saints of the Most High God!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we are grateful that according to The Word, The Father is married to the backslider who have for whatever reason turned away from following, trusting and believing the teachings of Jesus Christ, giving heed to seducing spirits of deception and are now living outside of boundaries of The Covenant that Your Righteousness has established! Lord, release a spirit of Godly-Repentance that cuts through their rebellious hearts, pulling down the enemy’s strongholds that are designed to keep them in bondage to the wickedness of sin-lusting fleshy deeds of darkness. Remind them that You are The ONLY Acceptable Sacrafice for Atonement and that if they persist in rejecting Your Mercy they shall be judged accordingly and eternally separated from all that You have prepared for those who have been called and chosen to live freely, peaceful, strengthened and filled with Your Joy as a Holy Nation, Your Royal Priest in a Everlasting Kingdom with an Everlasting King!

Sweet Jesus, looking around at the evil ways that unregenerated man has conspired, twisted torn and extolled above all that You have set before us, help us to keep our eyes looking Heavenwards, and our hearts filled with Your Word that we might not become weary in well-doing but trusting filly that You know the way that we take; cleanse our consciousness with Your Love and Faithfulness that endows our hearts with anticipating understanding that You will never allow the devil to put more on us than we’re able to bear, and if our burdens become too heavy for us, You have promised to always make a way for us to escape the snare of our enemies, finding shelter under You Mighty Wings, assured that all of our help comes down from The Father of all Comfort as we rely wholly upon Your Omnipresence, Omniscience and Omnipotence. When the tempest winds and storms of life begin to overwhelm us with fear, anxiety, stress, doubt, depression, opposition You have taught us to quickly run to The Rock that is Higher than us, hiding us in that secret cleft where we shall remain shielded safely under The Shadows of Your Almighty Providential Care!

Heavenly Father, while we’re sure that nothing happens in our lives that can ever take You by surprise and continue to confess You were wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement for our Peace was upon You and by Your STRIPES WE HAVE BEEN HEALED, there’s no denying that it seems as if we’re experiencing a tremendous increase of sickness and diseases even amongst Your children, unlike we’ve ever known! Abba Father, we ask You to touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, heart, kidney, lung disease, bone, prostrate, pancreas and colon disease, mental and emotional disorders and premature deaths, we ask that as You release Your Healing Mantle, rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake.

Heavenly Father, we know You to be Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Even as You walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, limp, lame, the downcast and outcast, we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now and are raising them up from their beds of afflction as a testament to Your Name, Power and Glory!

Daddy, we thank You for being God of our Salvation, Hope of Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision. We’re thankful that because You know our frame, Your Faithfulness and Compassion continuously allow You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to see and minister to all of our real need!

 

Lord, while we yet praying, we ask that You remember our children, our grand/great-grands! We’re trusting Your Word to save us and our households! We know that 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 know that the SAME MERCY AND PATIENCE that so generously allowed us to be here today is still covering our legacy, protecting them from being victimized by the Satanic influences that are rampant in this world, enticing our loved ones to ungodly soul ties enslaving them to those things that so easily beset this unsuspecting generation! As we commit them into Your Hand, we realize that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too and we have the blessed assurance that their steps are being Divinely-ordered by Your Eyes! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies, we release Your Spirit of Love, Holiness, Wholeness, Hope, Confidence and Excellence equipping and inspring them to fulfill  their God ordained destiny!

 

Lord, we pray for every one going thru a season of sorrow and grief, those being victimized by institutionalized racism, tormented by Spirits of fear, abandonment, lonliness, rejection, disappointment and failure, divorce, 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 Your Son Jesus, Your Righteousness, a Spirit of Love, Peace, Joy and a Sound Mind!

 

Sweet Jesus, we lift up every spiritual leader, we speak LIFE, STRENGTH, ENCOURAGEMENT, CONFIDENCE, ASSURANCE, RESTORATION OF HOPE-FILLED- ENTHUSIASTIC-ANTICIPATION and TRUST into all those who are yet believing for immediate manifestation of that special miracle and the fulfillment of every vision that You’ve placed into their hearts! We REBUKE AND COMMAND spirits of low-self esteem, self-doubt, failure, competitiveness, discouragement, disappointment, confusion, sloughtfulness, 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! Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace them to be the FAITHFUL AND TRUE WITNESSES, 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, as You’ve instructed, we stand in the gap on behalf of  the leaders of our nation and the world! Those who’ve You allowed to lead in governments, corporate, legislate, judicial, financial, education, public safety and services and institutions! We ask You to touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in the midnight hours, give them dreams and visions that lets 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 unbiased-bi-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 Father, by the power and anointing that You’ve placed upon every one who’s submitted their lives to You, as we stand in the gap today, we decree and curse the SPIRIT of trauma, hatred, racism, evil, rape, incest, molestation, physical and emotional abuse, bullying, murder, suicide, infidelity, betrayal, abandonment, rejection, hopelessness, unworthiness, stress, insomnia, restlessness, confusion, bi-polar, schizophrenia, poverty and lack, double-minded,  fear, anxiety, the brokenhearted, feeble in body and spirit, those desperate, despondent by grief and sorrow, the one at a crossroad of life, the ones addicted to harmful substances, our armed forces, policemen, fire and emergency rescue personnel, nurses, doctors, pastors and leaders, missionaries far and near and COMMAND IT TO GO RIGHT NOW! WE SPEAK LIFE, LOVE, LIGHT, SALVATION, DELIVERANCE, HEALTH AND HEALING, HOPE, WHOLENESS, RESTORATION, PEACE, RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JOY IN THE HOLYGHOST TO ALL WHO ARE READING THIS PRAYER IN THE NAME THAT’S ABOVE EVERY OTHER NAME THAT CAN BE NAME, JESUS, WE PRAY!

 

Holy Savior, send peace to where there is confusion, send love where there is hate, send unity where there is division. Bless the fatherless and motherless. Keep us ALL in Your care.

 

Father, in closing, we decree that every demonic-induced spirit is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power, PEACE and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now as we wait in confidence and quietness, 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 have received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

 

Holy Father, because You have called and chosen us to live 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, Salvation and Deliverance known among all nations; for You Guide and Rule justly, agreeing with You Who FORGIVES TRANSTRESSORS, HEARS AND ANSWERS PRAYERS, we stand believing according to Your perfect timing, it is done! We ask these favors In The Exalted Name of Jesus and seal this prayer shouting HOLY HALLELUJAH AND AMEN 3X !

 

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS IS ALIVE, HE STILL SAVES, HEALS, DELIVERS AND HE’S COMING BACK SOON!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

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?

Faithful, faithful, faithful is our God! Faithful, faithful, faithful is our God!Faithful, faithful, faithful is our GOD! Faithful, faithful, faithful is our God; I’m reaping the harvest God promised me! Take back what the devil stole from me; And I rejoice today, for I shall recover it all Yes, I rejoice today, for I shall RECOVER IT ALL!!!
Our Father and our God of Heaven and Earth, we come before bowing in Holy Reverence, humbled by Your Loving-Kindness, Grace and Mercy! We’re eternally grateful for one more opportunity to behold The Glory of Your Presence! Knowing that it’s only Your Wisdom and Strength that has allowed us to live today! We thank You for opening up the eyes of our understanding to reveal to us such wondrous treasures that were hidden from us as we walked as dead men, surrounded by darkness in the earth without a God on our side!

Abba Father, because of Your Faithfulness, we cherish this day and don’t take for granted, as if we have a right to live! But By The Mercy and Grace of our Blessed Father, we now live, move and have our being! As we come offering our bodies as living sacrifices to You, our hearts are rejoicing, our hands are lifted up and our lips shall be forever praizing You! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For ONLY You have preseved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!

Daddy,  because You  were willing to send Your Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, we thank You for being our Salvation, Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision. We’re thankful that even knowing our frame, Your faithfulness and compassion continuously allows You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to see and minister to everything we need pertaining to life and godliness!

Thank You Lord Jesus for being such a forgiving and understanding God. We must admit that You’ve already done enough for us that we should spend the rest of our life, worshiping and giving You all The Glory, Honor and Praise; for none else is worthy BUT YOU! YET, You keep right on blessing us over and over again! Abba Father, being careful not to take YOUR KINDNESS AND GRACE for granted, we ask You to please forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to Your Heart. We blss You for giving us the Assurance that as we confess our sin, You are Faithful and Just to forgive, pardon and restore us back into rightful fellowship with You, therefore, we ask now for Your forgiveness, in The Precious Name of Jesus! IT IS SO!
Precious Lord, as we stand before You, we praying, teach us Your Ways and help us to see sin through Your eyes and to acknowledge it as evil wickedness and rebellion against the Creator and Lover of our souls, The Giver and Sustainer of All Life! And when we sin, quicken our spirit to repent immediately, and to confess with our mouth our wrongdoing, that we might receive the Gracious forgiveness of our Heavenly Father!
Sweet Holy Spirit, because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we intercede on behalf of every unsaved soul, asking You to quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their heart and in their mind that they will come to you today confessing a“sincere YES” to your Amazing Gift of Grace and receive You as their personal Lord and Savior! We’re believing that You will Divinely orchestrate their footsteps settleling them into a local church home today.

Lord, lifting up any one who has walked away from You for whatever reason, we ask You to put a “fresh committed YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider! Make today the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR church where they will  be receieved and welcomed in love and nurtured to wholeness that they will submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, and learn to love and live their lives denying selfishness and walking to please You First!

Father, we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, kidney disease, heart/lung disease, every mental disorder, arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, acid reflux disease, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and ulcers and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. Heavenly Father, accprding toYour Word, You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Therefore, even as You walked this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! Your Word declares that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on Your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Dear Lord, we’re intervening on behalf of every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, that You will release Divine power, Supernatural strength, health, provision, prosperity and protection. We’re trusting that You will preserve each and everyone of us thru the tests that we must go thru and keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that at the appointed time,You, will bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word.

Abba, we ask that You encourage and comfort the souls of Your Elect who are overwhelmed with fear, doubt and worry because of the things that are going on in our personal lives and in this ungodly world systems! Father, because You sit high and look low, You already know about the Government Furlough, therefore we ask that You release an outpouring of Your Divine Favor upon each person who needs reassurance, encouragement and empowerment to stand steadfast, immovable in the midst of these wicked and evil days! Let us know that earth has no sorrow that Heaven can not heal, confirm to our souls that HEAVEN IS ALWAYS OPEN and that as we continue to look to You we are never alone and never without YourVery Present Help!

Father, once again, we lift up our children, our grand and great-grand children, trusting Your Word, we rebuke and cancel every wick scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them and committing them into Your Providential care, realizing that our children are a gift from You and that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too. we have the blessed assurance that from their Mothers’ wombs their steps and stops are being Divinely ordered by Your eyes! We PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS OVER THEIR LIVES as we declare and decree that NO WEAPON THAT’S FORMED AGAINST THEM SHALL PROSPER, AND EVERY TONGUE THAT RISES UP AGAINST THEM SHALL BE JUDGED AND CONDEMNED RIGHTEOUSLY BY YOU! We speak The Peace of God that passes all understanding over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence  that empowers them to successfully  fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Sweet Jesus,  as we lift up every spiritual leader, we speak LIFE, STRENGTH, ENCOURAGEMENT, CONFIDENCE, ASSURANCE, INCREASE, RESTORATION OF HOPE and TRUST into all those who are yet believing for immediate manifestation of that special miracle and the fulfillment of every vision that You’ve placed into their hearts! Reward them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word with POWER, under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit. Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace them to be the  TRUE AND FAITHFUL WITNESSES and examples of Your Righteousness in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love with You, trust wholly in You and commit to live the rest of their lives serving and glorifying Your Name!

Heavenly Father, we pray according to Your Will, for the leaders of our nation, Goverment, corporate, judicial, education, Healthcare, public service and financial institutions! We’re asking that You touch their minds and hearts, and that You speak to them in dreams and visions, releasing a Godly-Fear and Trembling, letting them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens is keeping record of the intents and deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!

Father, stir up the hearts and minds of Your people who are professing Your Name and give them a desire for an even greater personal, intimate relationship with Creator God through fellowship of Holy Spirit that they might prove what is the perfect and acceptable will of The Lord Jesus!
Abba Father, by the power and anointing that You’ve placed upon every one who’s submitted their lives to You, as we stand in the gap today, we curse every SPIRIT of trauma, hatred, racism, evil, rape, incest, molestation, physical and emotional abuse, bullying, murder, suicide, infidelity, betrayal, abandonment, rejection,  hopelessness, unworthiness, stress, oppression, depression, bi-polar, schizophrenia, lack, insomnia, restlessness, confusion, double-mindness, fear, anxiety, grief and sorrow and COMMAND IT TO GO RIGHT NOW!

Heavenly Father, You know that Your people are going through things that we never expected, so we bring so many before Your throne O God. Those who are broken hearted, feeble in body and spirit, the one at a crossroad of life, the ones addicted to harmful substances, our armed forces, policemen, fire and rescue personnel, nurses, doctors, pastors and leaders, missionaries far and near; our leaders of the world. We’re trusting You to send peace where there is confusion, send love where there is hate, send unity where there is division. Bless the fathers and motherless. Keep us ALL in your care. These favors we ask in Jesus mighty name!!

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

Father we wait in confidence and quietness, 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 FORGIVES TRANSTRESSORS, HEARS AND ANSWERS PRAYERS! Holy Father, because You have called and chosen to live in Your House, we shout with exceeding Joy unto The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines continuously  upon us, You are making Your WILL, WAYS and SALVATION known among all nations for You Guide and Rule justly!

Father, we thank You NOW, for WE believe that ACCORDING TO YOUR PEFECT TIMING, IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. WE SHOUT HOLY HALLELUJAH AND AMEN 3X and It Is So!

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!

MEMORIES, huh?

MEMORIES, HUH

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

When He slew them, then they sought Him; and they returned and inquired early after God. And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their Redeemer. Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues. For their heart was not right with Him, neither were they steadfast in His covenant. But He, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity and destroyed them not; yeah, many a time turned He his anger away and did not stir up all His wrath. For He remembered that they were but flesh, a wind passeth away, and cometh not again. Psalm 78:34-39

 

A few years back, (but who’s counting, huh?) Barbara Strissand recorded a hit song entitled ‘Memories’. This song pricked the hearts of all of us! Hence, we all have memories of days gone by that lure us back to the way we were. For some of us, when certain ticker-tapes of past personal experiences cross our minds, immediately we smile. Other flash-backs cause our hearts to flutter, skipping a beat… or two, remembering when. And then there are those special ones that yet…still prompt silent tears to crease our cheeks. Memories, huh? Some are fading and some, we only wish we could forget.

Like all of us, I indeed cling to God’s promises to keep my mind focused, sharp and sound. That being my faith stance, I must confess that—every now and then—I have to cash in what my kids call, one of my ‘senior moments’ vouchers. Now don’t look at me in that tone of voice. Can we be for real? I believe we all suffer a bout of ‘Spiritual Alzheimer’s’—every now and then.

Today’s scripture text recalls how the Israelites’ sporadic attacks of ‘forgetfulness’ provoked God’s wrath as He carried them through the wilderness. Now don’t be so hard on them. Truth be told, any one of us, drapped in this fickle-frail-flesh-frame, are just as prone to spiritual amnesia when it comes to recollecting the Wondrous works of God!

Time and time again, God has proven Himself a Faithful Provider, A Way-Out- of -No-Way, our Rock-in-A-Weary-Land, A Shelter-in our-Storm, A Strong Protector, Committed Redeemer and Eternal Hope of our Salvation.  HOWEVERRRR, in spite of our own personal memories of all that God has already done, the moment we’re faced with a new challenge, does our response reflect a confident trust in our Compassionate Merciful God of All Grace? Or do we suddenly forget to remember that if He Did It Before, He’ll Do It Again? Probably not, huh?  #ijs…

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Hebrews 13:8

BUT! THANKS BE 2 GOD! EVEN WHEN WE 4GET…GOD ALWAYS REMEMBERS…PRECIOUS MEMORIES, huh?

A SAFE PLACE!

A SAFE PLACE 3

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved”…In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah….God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God. Psalm 62:1-2, 7-8, 11

 The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. Nahum 1:7

 

“Everyday is not the same!” These were the words from a faithful friend to me to encourage me at a time when I found myself drowning in raging waters, attempting to maneuver my way through the valley overshadowed by Dred and Death! In retrospect, I’m almost tempted to say, “Sir, is dat ever an understatement!”

Who knu?  I never would’ve dare to imagine that one day, I’d be the one offering these same words to fellow sojourners along my path as a breath of refreshing wind to wayfaring souls hoping to console their storm-wearied hearts to keep moving, keep trusting, keep believing because NOW IS NOT FOREVER and GOD IS TOO FAITHFUL FOR YOU TO GIVE UP NOW! GOD IS Awemaazin, huh?

My sincere prayer is that the treasured words of today’s text,  inspired by Holy Spirit, serve as a compass leading you to The True Source of Comfort and Peace as they remind us of The Eternal Truth and Faithfulness of every Word that proceeds out of God’s Mouth! 

The sum of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting. Psalm 119:160

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:11

Beloved, only God knows what challenges you are facing at this writing, yet I hear the Saints of ol’ saanging I Go To The Rock!’ It was those soul-stirring songs that taught us that when the cares of this ol’ world overwhelm us, there is an escape, a safe house that we can run into and be saved from the threatening terror! Hence, we can run to the Mountain That is Higher than you and I!

My precious one, can we pray?

“Heavenly Father, here we are again bowing at The Throne of Your Mercy! We’re so grateful for the honor and privilege to come boldly, knowing that You hear and answer every petition, supplication and inquiry we place before You.

We’re praying for the strength of The people of God, that we might be encouraged to stand strong, continue lifting up The Blood Stained Banner of our Lord and Savior. Trusting confidently that He Who Rules and Reigns above The Heavens, is in ABSOLUTE CONTROL of the affairs of all mankind! We’re praying for the leaders of our country, fully persuaded that their hearts remain in God’s Hand, confident that The Omniscient Father never sleeps nor slumbers, is never taken by surprise, neither does He ever need to repent! EVERYTHING HE HAS PROMISED, HE WILL PERFORM!

We’re praying for our children, every parent who has been charged to instruct and rear them up in the fear and admonition of THE LORD will submit to the leading of Holy Spirit, walk upright before them that they may see our faith and commitment to THE GOD OF ALL HOPE!

We’re praying for those who are yet in darkness, being deceived by Satan into rejecting The Saving Grace of The Lord Jesus Christ will be snatched from the snares of sinfulness and repent before GOD, seeking forgiveness and salvation. We’re believing that the hearts of the backsliders will be pricked by The Spirit of The Living God so that they will make a decision to return to Jesus TODAY!

We’re praying for the comfort of those who are dealing with grief, depression, loneliness, fear, addictions, confusion, overwhelmed by financial commitments, sickness and diseases. We’re believing that the angels of the Lord are being sent to their sides to minister help, health and hope at this very moment.

We’re rejoicing in reality that the companionship of The Lord of All Comfort, Joy and Peace is never too far away and that HE can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities.

We’re eternally grateful, Father, that regardless of what each day brings, YOU OH GOD REMAIN THE SAME, YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOREVER FAITHFUL to protect and provide everthing we ever need.

ABBA FATHER, we’re thanking You now for Your Compassionate Loving Kindness, Tender Mercies and Unconditional Love that never leaves us nor forsakes those who place their personal trust in JESUS ALONE! THE SOLID ROCK!

We’re asking these things, recognizing that it’s because of The Majestic Name of Jesus that we yet rest assured in Hope, earnestly anticipating that it shall be so. In Jesus Name. AMEN 3X

LORD, AS YOU STAND BY ME, I’M IN MY SAFE PLACE!

SELAH!

THE NIGHT SHIFT!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. Psalm 121:4

 Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land. For I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.  Genesis 28:15 ESV

 

Whether you’ve been walking with Jesus for a long time or just recently made your decision to follow Christ, none of us are excluded from faith’s stresses, test and trials! If you don’t have a clue about what I’m talking about, may I draw from dem ol’ skool Mothers’ terminology, “Baby, jus keep getting up in the mornin’ and going to bed at night, sooner or later you will encounter a season in your life when you’ll feel as though God has left you in the valley of the shadows of death to fend for yourself!”

I understand that this kinda theology may seem a bit strange, (not to mention unbiblical, after all we live in the Dispensation of Grace) to some Millenniums who’ve been spoon fed Gospel-Lite-Prosperity pablum prepared by the more sophisticated-socially-acceptable-all-ingratiating-all-inclusive preachers! But check The Book, it’s still in there! “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:” 1 Peter 4:12

Yet! When you’re forced to trample through the turbulence terrains of this life, know, that your Heavenly Father is not a dead-beat absentee Father. God has left His Eternal Word as a Light to the 21st Century Saints! Hence, The Word of God is still well able to comfort, strengthen and encourage those who seek Him!

Precious ones, perhaps, at this reading, you find yourself smack-dab-in-the-middle of a loooonnnnggg night of overwhelming fear and anxiety,  yet Truth remains! Even when you’re unable  to trace God’s Face or feel His Hand, trust His Heart!

Sometimes, we’re so focused on the trauma of the moment that we forget that we have a real enemy who delights in secretly launching attacks against God’s elect, under the cloak of darkness with his diabolical wiles, strategically aimed to diminish your confidence and trust in God!  Nevertheless,  don’t fall for the okey-doke…Satan ain’t running nothing! Your God is Sovereignly watching over you 24/7! He never naps! Day and night are the same to Him! Every step you take is Divinely-ordered by The Lord! He’s already gone before you preparing designated rest areas along the road to revive and re-energize our spirit and soul! #Didjaheardat? IT’S TRUE!

Beloved, when it seems as if everything is falling apart, Holy Spirit says, ‘It’s falling right in place’! Abba Father is weaving each piece of your life together for your greatest good and His Highest Glory! And at the appointed time, He will flip it over to display His Magnificent Masterpiece! (Ref. Romans 8:28)

“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.” 1 John 3:2

Like Jacob, as we continue our pilgrimage through the gross darkness of this fallen world en route to the celestial city, we may all proclaim of our Savior “The God that led me all my life long” works THE NIGHT SHIFT!

LEAN ON ME!

LEAN ON ME 2!

 

 

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
Looking around, God’s elect find ourselves confronting by circumstances that challenge the very foundation of our trust! We’re seeing things that were once 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 has become the new order of the day! Thereby allowing men to do what is right in his own mind! 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 in exuberant praises celebrating real deliverances wrought by The Faithful Hand of The Lord! 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

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 we’re 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 place 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!

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 Him, that’s why He sent Holy Spirit! Sshhhhh! Didjaheardat? #LEANONME!

SELAH!
