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

ENUFF IS ENUFF!

ENUFF IS ENUFF 2

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

So the Lord sent a pestilence upon Israel from the morning even to the time appointed: and there died of the people from Dan even to Beersheba seventy thousand men. And when the angel stretched out his hand upon Jerusalem to destroy it, the Lord repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed the people, It is enough: stay now thine hand. And the angel of the Lord was by the threshing place of Araunah the Jebusite. Samuel 24:15:16

 

To those who still doubt the authenticity of The Holy Bible, I say obviously you’ve never read this Book! It must be God! I mean, can you imagine any other person, being as openly-transparent about His own family? #ijs

Here we see Israel’s most celebrated King, David, God’s Elect, “Man after God’s Own Heart”exposed by The Light of Truth throughout all generations as an example and a warning!

While there yet remains much to admire, seeing the Favor of God exemplified raising up a shepherd boy to King reigning over HIS People, but we must never forget that David was mortal and not Divine. It’s okay to acknowledge and even emulate some of the more notable characteristics of God’s servant, however we must never fail to take into account David’s humanity! Therefore,  David was subject to the same proclivities of his frail, infirmed, flawed and failing flesh as we are!

As we further investigate today’s text, we get a glimpse into one of the more dimmer phases of his extraordinary life. As the story goes, during the latter part of his life, God allowed Satan to tempt David in order to test what was truly in his heart. At the height of his successful reign, apparently David began to think more highly of himself than he ought to. (Ref. Romans 12:3) Hence, opening the gateway to pride and vainglory, the King commanded an unauthorized census taken of his people, which was a deliberate violation of God’s Law. (Ref. Exodus 30:12)

Now before yall sanctified folk start judging David, remember “let He who is without sin, cast the first stone! (Ref. John 8:7)

How many times have you willfully over-ruled the urging of Holy Spirit and did what seemed right in your own eyes? Now, put BOTH your hands UP! Right!

Truth is, every one of us has been GUILTY as charged! Nevertheless, when Justice demanded punishment, MERCY said NO! And while we might’ve suffered, to some extent, for our rebellious disobedience, ABBA GOD feeling the pain and the terror of His Beloved Children, stepped in the midst of our guilt-ridden, regret-laden, shame-filled consequences, rebuked Death and declared “Enough is Enough”!

David acknowledging his guilt, taking full responsibility for his actions, humbly committed himself into the Hands of the Loving Mercy Faithful Shepherd, prayed for forgiveness for himself and interceding on behalf of those who were innocently victimized because of his selfishness#Didjaheardat? #GODLY-REPENTANCE!

WOW! Now, that right there should cause all of us to immediately follow David’s lead, huh?  Seriously, how much longer do you intend to stay trapped in the cycle of your good intentions, failure, guilt and shame?  It’s time to get over yourself! Jus turn your face back towards the One TRUE GOD, sanctify your heart and lifestyle wholly unto our Holy God!  TRUST2KNO, the benefits are outta this world!

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

C’mon nah! AFTER ALL THAT GOD’S DONE FOR US, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!  #IJS!!! #jusreasonable!

Heavenly Father, we come before You today, in the Magnificent, All Powerful Name of ourLord and Savior Jesus, rejoicing, praising and thanking You for blessing us to see a brand new day. We thank You, Father for one more opportunity to embrace and enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace!

Abba Father, we thank You for being The True and Living God of our Salvation, our Deliverance, Breakthrough, Protection and Provision. We’re thankful that because You know our frame, Your faithfulness and compassion yet allows You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to forgive us, cover us in Your Blood, cleanse us from our unrighteousness and minister to all of our need!

Receive our praises to You today, flowing out of  hearts that are open to you, depending and relying solely upon You. We praise You Lord, for You alone are the Source of renewed strength, understanding and power! We honor You LORD Jesus, because no man can come to the Father except You draw them. Therefore, acknowleging that You Love everybody and are no respecter of persons, Father we ask that as Your eyes continue to search the hearts of humanity, that You draw and save the lost, reclaim every back-slider and direct their footsteps to the place that You have ordained, settling them into a church home today where they will be accepted, loved, nurtured and taught The Way of Holy Righteousness.

Father, as we intercede on behalf of every one who has yet to receive Your Saving Grace, please quicken every stony heart with The Spirit of Godly-repentance and renew their mind that they will come to humbly to You today confessing  “a SINCERE YES” to Your Free Gift of Salvation and receive You as their pesonal Savior and Lord of their life!

Lord, we ask You to infuse the hearts and minds of everyone who has turned their backs and walked away from You with a “FRESH COMMITTED YES LORD”! Let today be the day that they come running back to You and come home to YOUR vineyard.

Father, as You know, so many of Your chosen have been afficted by sickness and diseases, therefore we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister who are suffering in their bodies, especially with the spirit of cancer, HIV, Aids, kidney, heart and lung disease, high/low blood pressure and arthritis, autism, dementia, alheizmers, bi-polar and clinical depression! Lord we ask that You rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. Lord, Your Word declares that You are Jehovah Rophe and the stripes, bruises and wounds that You endured on The Cross have redeemed and healed us! Today we  stand on every promise that proceeded from Your Mouth and decree that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name!

Lord, we pray for every believer who is struggling to yet hold onto Your Hand by faith today, trusting that You are releasing a double portion of Divine Power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection. Father, we believe that You shall preserve us thru every  test and trial that You’ve ordained us to go thru and that You shall continue to keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE! We shall remain  fully-confident that at Your appointed time, You will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and You shall reward  us with the Victory as  promised in Your Eternal Word.

Father, we’re thanking You for an outpouring of Your Divine Favor upon each and every one of Your children who are facing 911 circumstances, those seeking  sudden breakthroughs in family situations, deliverance from financial issues,  employment and promotions,  we ask that You favor them with a prompt approval for student/car/home/business/church loans as You assure them although WITH MAN it may very well be IMPOSSIBLE BUT BECAUSE YOU are GOD, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE TO YOU, THEREFORE TRUST2KNO YOU SHALL supply all of our need according to Your Riches in Glory!

Aba Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of  anxiety, stress, intimdation, threat, doubt and fear is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

Father, we lift up our children, our grand/great-grand children. Lord we know that they’re facing many challenges, (kidnapping, bullying, incest, sexual and physical abuse, murder, suicide, depression, deceptions and all manner of social perversions) the such we never believed possible. Nevertheless, we’re trusting wholly upon Your Word,  we rebuke and cancel every wicked scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! We commit them into Your Providential Care! We realize that our children are a gift from You and You have predestined a plan and purpose for their lives. We hold fast to the blessed assurance that from their Mothers’ wombs, their steps and stops are Divinely orchestrated by Your Eyes!

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 DECREE THE BLOOD OF JESUS OVER THEM AND SPEAK THE PEACE OF GOD OVER THEIR SPIRITS, SOULS, MINDS AND BODIES; RELEASING THE SPIRIT OF LOVE, HOLINESS, CONFIDENCE, JOY AND EXCELLENCE EQUIPPING THEM TO FULFILL THEIR GOD ORDAINED DESTINY! IN JESUS NAME! Amen 3x!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we lift up every spiritual leaders, speaking LIFE, STRENGTH, HOPE, ENCOURAGEMENT, CONFIDENCE, ASSURANCE, RESTORATION AND UNWAVERING TRUST into the hearts and minds of all those who are yet believing for the immediate manifestation of that special miracle and the fulfillment of every vision that You’ve placed into their hearts! Reward those who are yet standing boldly on the Wall proclaiming Your Word under THE CONVICTING POWER & ANOINTING of Holy Spirit! We’re trusting and believing You to Grace them to be TRUE EFFECTIVE WITNESSES and examples of YOUR Righteousness in their homes, churches, marketplaces, and community that will provoke others who come into contact with them to envy the JOY that they possess, to seek and fall madly in LOVE with You, trust wholly in and commit to live the rest of their lives serving and glorifying You!

Jesus, we praying for our nation and the nations of the world. We ask that You cast out a net of repentance, covering the hearts of those who have been confused and influenced by the wicked deceitfulness of the Accuser. We know that You are the same God who in times past, hearing the prayers of the righteous, repented of Your plan to destroy the Nation of Israel and turned Your peoples’ hearts back to You. Lord, Save, Heal & Deliver America!

Heavenly Father, Your people are going through things that we never expected, but we know that absolutely nothings takes You by surprise, therefore we come before Your Throne, lifting up all those who are broken-hearted, feeble in spirit, mind and body, those who are standing at a crossroad and have no idea which way to go, those who are addicted to selfishness, those who are addicted to harmful substances; we pray for  our armed forces, policemen, fire and rescue personnel, nurses, doctors, surgeons, missionaries far and near. We’re trusting You to send wisdom, knowledge and instruction, replace confusion with peace, hate with love and division with unity! Bless the orphans, the widows, the rejected and outcasts with Fathers and Mothers in The Gospel! LORD, KEEP US ALL AS ONLY YOU CAN!

Abba, we know that there’re so many other things that we’ve failed to include, we’re asking that Holy Spirit to intervene on our behalf, searching the secret places of our inner-most being, interceding and interpreting the sighs, moans and groans and bring them before Your Throne of Mercy!

Father as we wait in confidence and quietness, we rejoice in hope; trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly retreating 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!

Father, we thank You NOW, for WE believe that it is already done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3x and It Is So!

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES YOU JUST AS MUCH AS HE LOVES EVERYBODY!

GOOD MORNING FAMILY! GOTTA MOMENT? GLORRRAAAA!

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked. The fierce anger of the Lord shall not return, until he hath done it, and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it. Jeremiah 30:23-24

 

LOOK OUT…then LOOK UP! There’s enuff circumstantial evidence out here today to verify that these are indeed the times prophesided in The Bible as Jacob’s deep trouble and distress! Glancing around, seeing  unrelenting tragedy, caducous corruption, deciduous deception and inconceivable injustice, one might erroneously conclude that the fires of darkness have prevailed, releasing double turmoil and chaos on the land, from which there is no recovery!

Obviously, the people of God have not been excluded from the suffering, pain and disparity. In the midst of the overwhelming darkness, some will succumb to fear and doubt, giving into the seducing spirits of the Tempter, turning their faces away from The Hope of Glory and drift over to the enemy’s fire, as if Satan has the power to save them!

However, don’t be befuddled by the jeers of the false prophets, GOD ALWAYS HAS A NUMBER WHO REFUSE TO BOW! Hence, there yet remains that Faithful Remnant who have determined, “COME WHAT MAY…I WILL trust in the One that the world has rejected, my proven Chief Corner Stone, with all of my heart, mind, soul and spirit!”

Jesus, The True and Faithful Witness, has given His chosen, everything that we shall ever need to endure these hardships as good soldiers! Hence, as we stand solidly on The Rock of our Salvation, taking God at His Word, in due season, we shall see the reward of the wicked and the servants of God exalted!

Always remember! Those who have deligetly embraced a personal faith relationship with The Redeemer and Restorer of our souls, have an Incorruptible Hope that excels far beyond this world! (Ref. 1 Peter 1:23)

The Righteous Judge has decreed, “I AM keeping watch over MY Word to perform it. Don’t be afraid! I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS! I see everything that you’re going through and I WILL enter into your darkness AND TURN IT AROUND to save and deliver you! AGAIN!

Don’t worry about those fair weather folk who mock and dismiss your faith as ‘hopeless fanatic ignorance’! But cling to ME, for you are MY very own people and I WILL BE YOUR VERY OWN GOD!”

My fellow sojourners, BE STEADFAST, UNMOVABLE ALWAYS ABOUNDING IN THE WORK OF OUR LORD! (Ref. 1 Corinthians 15:8)

WHEN THE DUST SETTLES, YOUR ENEMIES WILL BE LEFT GROVELING IN THE DIRT, HEADS SPINNING , MOUTHS GAPPING IN ABSOLUTE WONDER, “didjaseedat?”

CHECK THE BACK OF THE BOOK! JUSTICE PREVAILS! WE WIN AND ZION SHALL STAND FOREVER! GOD TURN’T IT!

IT’S THE GOD IN ME!

ITZ THE GOD IN ME

And I will ask the Father and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know Him, for he lives with you and will be in you. John 14:16-17

 

Looking back through the lenses of 21st Century influence, we see that since the birth of The New Testament Church it has been plagued with  external and  interal controversy!  While most Biblical scholars agree that the Church was born on The Day of Pentecost, generally that’s where the consensus begins and ends.

According to The Scriptures, The Risen Savior showed Himself to His disciples, who were still reeling from the horrific events that had just taken place, and instructed them “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptised with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit”. Acts 1:4-5

God knew how much the disciples had come to rely upon Jesus’s Presence during the past 3 ½ years He’d walked with them, teaching, guiding and protecting them but now at Christ’s Ascension, would fall victim to their fears, confusion and discouragement!  Although, Jesus had on numerous occasions assured them that He would not leave them without Divine Assistance, but promised to send them another Comforter in the person of Holy Spirit to empower them to complete their assignment to spread The Message of Christ throughout the whole world–this revelation seems to have escaped them in the ensuing threat of impending persecution!

What is this PROMISE?  The Holy Spirit is known as the third person of The Triune God! While The Holy Spirit functions differently from God The Father and God The Son, He is reverenced as equal in Holiness in The God-Head!

Beloved, as a believer in The Saving Grace of Lord Jesus, God has given us the very samePromise. The moment we make a sincere profession of faith, The Holy Spirit moves into our hearts and fills us with hope, conviction and confidence that we are now a part of God’s Family, a Royal-Priesthood, a Holy Nation! (Ref. 1 Peter 2:9)

However, this is only the beginning! Along with this regeneration (the new birth) comes a challenge and a charge! As a born-again-blood-washed Child of The Kingdom, we are called to be ambassadors of our King to a lost and dying world! Therefore, we also need to be filled and empowered with the enabling Grace and Authority of the indwelling Spirit of Jesus in order to do The Father’s Will and glorify Him in the earth! C’mon nah, don’t shout me down!

Just as the Holy Spirit was poured out upon the disciples in the Upper Room, God wants each of us to experience this same anointing! (Ref. 2:1-4) Unfortunately, NOT EVERYONE accepts this spectacular gift that God promised to as many who would receive Him! Yet, this does not preclude any one from partaking of the fullfilment of The Promise! (Ref. Mark 7:13)

“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people…” Acts 2:17 

While it’s not my intention to persuade any away from their affirmation, as Martin Luther, “I cannot in good consciousience deny my own personal experience!” Therefore, I can stand firmly fixed in humily with adoration proclaiming, ‘There is absolutely no doubt in my heart nor mind, that any good that I do, any wisdom that I have, any knowledge that I’ve gained, any challenge that I’ve overcome over these past 30 years of walking in Christ, is a direct result of ‘The God in me’!

There is no way for mere man to live the HOLY abundant life as prescribed in The Word without the counsel, guidance, and help  of the indwelling navigation of Holy Spirit! And isn’t that what God expects of all of us? Revolutionary, huh?

To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: (Colossians 1:27)

WOW!  IF YOU SUPPLY THE SACRIFICE, HE SUPPLIES THE FIRE! IT’S ALL GOD IN US!

“Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you…” James 4:8a kjv
 

Ever heard the term ‘1st chair’?  Well, according to the Law, the Legal definition of First Chair is the lead attorney in a case.  However, The Farlex Trivia Dictionary defines First Chair as “The premier musician playing a particular instrument in an orchestra—seated closest to the audience, taking the lead for that instrument’s movements, and playing any solos. “ My point being, ‘WHO’S IN CHARGE OF RUNNING YOUR LIFE’?

Really? 

Then why are you still complaining? Apparently, there appears to be a direct correlation between the amount of time one spends in HIS Presence and the amount of time spent worrying, murmuring and complaining, questioning and judging God’s decisions regarding our lives. OMG! WHO KNU?

Seriously, the The Holy Scriptures is filled with testimonials that further substantiate this observation!  “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”. Matthew 6:33 and…“Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near.  Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:6-7 

Let’s be for real! Too many of us are still trying to fix stuff that God never intended for us to. That’s why He invites us to come to Him with those things that are concerning us. Uuuh, isn’t that what prayer is all about?  #ijs It makes no sense to ask God to meet you on the rooftop when you’re stuck in the basement, right? Unless your pride is bent on self-reliance, which is  basically no help at all!  #Don’t shout me down nah!

Still need help? 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, GOD doesn’t ask any of us to walk this journey of LIFE independent of His Awemmaazzing Grace! That’s why The WORD says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”  Matthew 11:28-29

TRUST2KNO, whatever you’re struggling with today, God calls light-duty?

And guess what? GOD DON’T NEED NO CO-PILOT! WOW! #didjaheardat? Strap yourself in The Love of GOD and He’ll take You THERE–WHEREVER HE WANTS U 2 B!

Looks to me LIKE DATZ A RAP, huh?  Jus another perspective 4 U 2 PONDER! NOW, WHO’S ON 1st?

SELAH!
