SELAH Daily Devotions!

GM FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAZING!

Once again, we are grateful that you’re joining us in our weekly Day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We appreciate every opportunity and privilege extended to us that we might entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest, pouring out our hearts desires, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. Humbled by such graciousness, we bow before Him, 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 we grab hold to The Horns of The Altar now to worship Him…

Welcome into this place! Welcome into this broken vessel! You desire to abide in the praises of Your people, so we lift our hands, as we lift our hearts and we offer up this praise unto YOUR NAME!Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me! …shall we pray?

 
Father of All Glory Who Reigns Victoriously over and far above the circle of the Earth! We rise this morning to give You All the Praiz and Honor that’s due to You! For You Alone are our God, The Source of our being, The Supplier and Strength of Everything that we will ever need pertaining to this life and the life to come. It’s in You that we live, in You that we move! As we come boldly bowing before Your Presence, we thank You for one more day to behold The Wonder of Your Majesty! We’re eternally grateful that when our hearts are overwhelmed with fear, doubt, confusion, Your Compassion beckons us to draw nigh to the Rock that’s Higher than I, welcoming us to embrace The Joy, The Hope and Peace that we can always find in Your Presence! And for this cause, we enter into Your Gates with Thanksgiving and into Your Courts with Praiz!
We thank You for Your tender mercy and loyal love that’s extended towards such frail, fickled fleshy frames who have a mind to continue looking to You to preserve and protect us from all hurt, harm and danger. For You have so Graciously Committed Your Word to watch over us! We’re thankful that You loved us so much that You were willing to Sacrifice Your Only Begotten Son in our stead in order to reconcile sinners back into right relationship with such a Holy God! For this cause we continuously exalt The Blessed Name that You have given us, that’s above every other name that can be named! We bless the Name of Jesus, trusting that at that Name, every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess JESUS IS LORD of, over and through all!

Sweet Jesus, we thank You for entrusting the Precious Gift of Holy Spirit Whom You sent to reside on the inside of our hearts and our lives. You knew that we needed Christ in us to help us, teach us, lead and guide us, strengthen and encourage us, to calm our fears and comfort our doubting hearts, keeping us when the cares and challenges of the wicked worldly systems sought to devour the VICTORY that we have found in You!

We thank You, Heavenly Father, for forgiving us when unwillfully and yes sometimes willfully do, say and think those unrighteous things that grief Holy Spirit, forgetting the price that was paid to remove the debt and penalty that we who were guilty, owed, but because of Your Lovingkindness, You allowed The Righteous to endure the Cross, despising the shame that the chastisement be placed upon Jesus for our Peace would be acceptable in Your Sight! Therefore, help us to never take for granted, or frustrate The Grace that was so freely poured out on us. Forgive us today, wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, restore us to proper relationship, to hate what You hate and delight in what delights You! Empower us to walk upright before You!

Abba Father, we know that Satan has blinded the eyes and minds of all those who are yet enslaved by The Darkness of this world, and that unless You lift the veil and open the eyes of their understanding, no man can come to You! We know assuredly that it’s not Your Will that any should perish and that it’s only the Goodness of The Lord that allows any of us to repent! Therefore, we come humbled by such undeserved favor, praying now that You break up the fallow ground, pierce rebellious spirits with a Spirit of Godly-Repentance and put a “SINCERE YES” setting free their captive hearts to cry out “What must I do to be saved?” Wash them in Your Atoning Blood and direct their steps to a local church where they will be received in Love, nurtured in Your Will and Ways and empowered to be Children of Light, reflecting The Wonder of Your Amazing Grace that invoke others to envy the New Life that’s available to any who seek Your Salvation!

Holy Spirit, we lift up the backsliders, who have for whatever reason been duped into leaving The sanctity of The Good Shepherd’s sheepfold! Send a undeniable Word to their hearts that they will understand that You are A Loving Compassionate Father, swearing by Your Own Hurt, to be married, not divorced to those who would repent, come running back to You, offering a “COMMITTED YES” and trusting that You The Only Wise Savior and Lord, will welcome them home with joy and not judgment, restore them to righteousness, and plant them in the Body of Christ, root and and ground them that they might grow into trees of righteousness, become teachers and leaders, exemplifying The Wondrous Works of God’s Grace and Mercy to a lost and dying world!

Precious Jesus, as Your Eyes roam to and fro through out the land, we ask that You rebuke the Spirits of confusion, anxiety and depression that’s attempting to bound the hearts and minds of Your Elect. Send strength to the widows, widowers, those wearied by grief mourning the loss of loved ones! Deliver the souls burdened by seemingly impossible time-sensitive situations! Heal those who’s bodies are afflicted by all manner of sickness and diseases. Lift up the bow-down heads of those down-trodden by disappointment, discouragement, delusioned by hopelessness and intimidated by fear! Remember those who have born the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through! Lord, give them sweet Peace knowing that their labor is never in vain!

Abba Father, we intercede on behalf of families, fathers and mothers, heal broken hearts and restore marriages that have been disrupted by abuse, betrayal and unforgiveness and divorce; restore respect, rebuke rebellious wayward children, pull down strongholds that threatened the peace, prosperity and unity of our homes! Send signs and wonders, work miracles, open closed doors, close doors that lead to death and destruction as You make ways out of no way, In Jesus Name!
Father, we’re lifting up our children, our grands and great-grand children and by faith we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives! We cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, help us to remember from whence You have brought us! We thank You for the benevolence and patience that we have for them, realizing that You also have a plan and purpose for their lives! Therefore, armed in Blessed Assurance that their steps are being ordered by Your eyes and 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, minds and bodies. releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny! In Jesus Name!

Heavenly Father, according to Your WORD, we pray for the leaders of our nation and the world. We lift up every local and federal governments, corporate, judicial, education, financial institutions, health care facilities, doctors, surgeons, technicians, nurses, remember the police, firemen and other public service workers, daycare workers, nursing care workers!! We’re asking that You 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 believing that because their hearts are in Your Hands, they are being continuously opened to 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 Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Elder, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher, 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, 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 the our steps are being ordered by You, 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 thank You for Your Divine Intervention, Supernatural Power, Strength, Wisdom and Understanding as You keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE, fully confident that You are The Hope of our Glorraa!

We declare and decree that we are more than conquers therefore, every demonic-induced spirit of addiction and fear is already defeated because of Your Yoke Destroying, Burden Bearing Anointing, the Spirit of Love, Power a Sound-mind and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

Lord, undoubtedly there are so many other things that we have failed to mention, nevertheless, we’re trusting that not only are You able to interpret the sighs, moans and every groanings of spirit, but You’re willing to perfect the unspoken requests, doing anything according to You Perfect Will to fix it, Jesus, as only You can, in Jesus Name!

Abba Father, as we wait patiently in confident 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, declaring that IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus, with an Amen 3X and a HOLY HALLELUJAHHH!

Beloved, every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS STILL LIVES, LOVES, SAVES, HEALS AND DELIVERS! !

ABOVE AND BEYOND

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. Psalm 113:4

But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life. Fear not: for I am with thee:… Isaiah 43:1-5

 

Trying to find certainty admidst a world that’s permeated with uncertainty is becoming increasingly arduous today, huh? One thing for certain, two things for sure: Life happens fast and furious! Preparing for the unexpected is a challenge for any of us! Saved and Unsaved alike!

Yet as believers in The Lordship of Jesus Christ, we’re taught to do just that! The Word of God warns us that when faced with seemingly overwhelming circumstances, to resist panic and anxiety! How many times has your circumstantial evidence threatened to destroy all hope for recovering the calmness that we once enjoyed walking in the comforting Presence of God’s Favor? #bothhandsup!

Nevertheless, time and wisdom have trained us that Satan delights in using the sporadic turbulent winds and  upheaval waves of chaos, temptations and uncertainty to manipulate and vex the minds of unsuspecting sainted-souls of God’s elect.

 

From the beginning, The Master of Diabolic Deception, has proven himself quite adept in distracting our hearts away from what we know of God!  He suptly moves in derailing and transitioning our commitment to unwavering trust  into questioning, doubt, unbelief; ultimately dissipating our hope-filled confidence into pits of of desperation, fear and despair! Don’t shout me down nah?

While it sometimes appears as if Satan has been declared the victor, it behooves you to not fall for the ‘ookey-doke’, and never ever underestimate The Sovereign Power of God! 

Remember, your enemies can’t intrude into your life, except God allows! TRUST2KNO, the only reason  that He ever permits a demon to invade your personal space, is to prove that GOD’S Purpose excels far beyond your temporary pain and discomfort!

Granted, it’s not easy to deny what’s right before your eyes! However, the things you see with your natural vision does not necessarily negate the spiritual reality that there’s more with you than there is against you. According to God’s Word, what we see is temporal, but the unseen is ETERNAL!  The enemy’s arsenal is flanked by confusion, isolation, intimidation teeming in FEAR. #FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL! BUT, TAKE ANOTHER LOOK!  Chances are, it ain’t what it looks like!  GOD has equipped us with HOLY GHOST POWER, LOVE AND A SOUND MIND! (Ref. 1 Peter 4:12-14) (1 John 4:4)

While Satan’s plotting to impede your confident reliance on God’s Presence and Prominence, your Loving Heavenly Father has a Irrevokable Plan, guaranteed to lead and guide you safely through the murky rivers of this life to the shores of Heaven’s Glory!  EVEN IFsome water gets into your boat,  YOU WON’T DROWN because  your life is anchored in the Rock!

Beloved,  jus keep clinging to The Eternal Hope of God’s Word, fully persuaded by Grace that whatever befalls you, it can’t stop your destiny! Ride out the storms in quiet confidence knowing GOD GOTCHA! (Ref. Hebrews 13:5)

JESUS LIVED ABOVE THE CIRCUMSTANCES! SO, WHAT’S UP WITH U?

Consuming Fire, Sweet Perfume! Your Awesome Presence, fills this room! This is Holy ground…This is Holy ground…we bow down….

 
Our Father and our God of Heaven and Earth, once again, we come before You humbled by Your Loving-Kindness, Awemaazing Grace and Tender Mercy! We do not take it for granted as if we have earned the right to live, but we’re eternally grateful for one more opportunity to behold The Glory of Your Presence! We know that it’s Your Power and Strength that has kept us alive today! Because of You we live, move and have our being! With our hearts rejoicing, hands lifted up and our lips forever praizing and thanking You for revealing to us such wondrous treasures that were hidden from our understanding, when we walked surrounded by darkness, as dead men in the earth without a God on our side! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!

Thank You for being our Salvation, Hope of Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision! Even being completely aware of the limitations of 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!  We’re blessed because You are a forgiving God, not only have You done so much for each of us, You keep right on blessing us over and over again!. Abba Father, we pray, “Forgive me this day for everything I’ve don, said or thought that was not pleasing to Your Heart. Help us to see and hate sin even as You do. Help us not to frustrate The Grace that You’ve so freely allotted to us. Assured that as we confss our sin, You are Faithful and Just to forgive, pardon and restore us back to rightful fellowship with You, we pray now for Your forgiveness, in The Precious Name of Jesus!”

Father, because You are Omniscient, Omnipresent,  and having walkd among us, allowing Your self to be tempted at all points as we are, You learned what we experience in these earthly tabernacles and can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities!

Sweet Jesus, we’re eternally grateful that You are our Great High Priest, able to intercede on our behalf continuously searching and conveying the thoughts, intents, emotions and physical weaknesses that we’re often unable to articulate to The Father of All Grace and Comfort! We thankya Lord, for being A Very Present Help!

Precious Lord, looking 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!

Lord, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word, You know that sometimes, it’s difficult to over-ride the noise of the pestilence, the chaos of uncertainty and the the down-pull of pain condemnation, guilt, and shame that seems to lure us into the valleys shadowed with danger, fear, anger, bitterness, anxiety, hopelessness and self-doubt! That’s why we gladly run to You, now seeking refuge in the midst of storms, peace in the midst of the waves and hope for the faithful restoration that You have prepared for any who would come to You in hope-filled assurance that You will never deny Your Word!

Heavenly Father, thank You for continuing to satisfy our souls, renew our strength, understanding and power as we yield the cares of our hearts to You! Because no man can come to the Father except you draw them, Father, we interceded on behalf of every unsaved soul, please quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their heart and in their mind that they will come confessing a “sincere YES” to Your Precious Gift of Grace and receive You as their Lord and Savior! We’re believing that You will direct their footsteps and place them and settle them into a church home where they will be loved, nurtured, encouraged and taught the Ways of Your Kingdom!

Abba Father, we ‘re trusting You to break up the fallow ground and put a “new committed YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider! Let today be the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR church determined to submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, learn to love and live their lives walking to please You First!

Father, we believe that as we’re praying, You are touching our brother, our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, strokes, heart attacks, kidney failure, liver disease, mental and emotional issues! We intercede on behalf of all those undergoing surgical procedures, those in recovery rooms. We’re praying for those who’re on life-support systems, not knowing that they’re even in this world! We’re declaring and decreeing that as we’re praying You’re walking through every ward, touching, healing, delivering, miraculously rebuking fatigue, mistakes, mishaps, misdiagnosis and premature death for Your Name Sake!

We plead the Blood of Jesus, declaring and decreeing 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!

Holy Spirit, intervene on our behalf to expose and rebuke the murdering spirit, the spirit of  doubt, unbelief, hesitation and release us from every ungodly soul tie and enable us to move forward away from the shores of comfort to embrace the thoughts and plans that You have for us! Birth in us new things, releasing an anointing to destroy yokes, and giving us hope in Your Eternal words that You are watering the dry places, and causing the dead bones to live again!

Help us to remain faithful and keep a Kingdom mindset, relying on the Holy Spirit to go before us and make our way prosperous. We believe You are dispensing overwhelming Favor, Prosperity, Peace and when these blessings are manifested, help us to walk in a spirit of humility giving Your Name all the Glory, Honor and Praiz!
We bind every wicked scheme that the enemy desires to assail against us declaring that we are well able to take possession of every promises that You’ve made to us! We pray for total deliverance from every cord that would bind Your people and come against our God -ordained Destiny! We rebuke the enemies of our minds, thanking You that nothing can stop the blessings or us from performing the greater works You have assigned to the covenant saints! We thankya for the courage and patience to stand, steadfast, consistent, always abounding in the work of our LORD!
We pray for consoling strength for all who have lost loved ones, touch bodies, rebuke the demons of the minds, and emotions, disappointments, restore power, love and sound minds, hope and the JOY of Your Salvation. Help us to understand that because we are royal priests, a holy nation unto You, failure is not final and our victorious testimonies shall provoke envy of other nations who have not submitted to The True God but who yet serve false gods!
Sweet Holy Spirit, we bless You for The Spirit of Sonship that has raised us up calling us “MINE”! Therefore, as Children of The Light, empower us to rebuke venomous, hateful, words of racism because all flesh is of one BLOOD! We pray for the church to be The Church of The Bride of Christ! Strip us from every demonic influence! You have called us to be influencers in the midst of the lost and ungodly world. We pray for our enemies, those who despitefully use us. Help us to bless those who are bitter and speak evil of us that our faith may be a sign that we belong to you! We pronounce blessing, joy, peace, favor upon all who trust You, as You prepare a table before our enemies!

Lord Jesus, send confirmation to those who are wavering as they’re waiting in faith for Your hand to move on our behalf. Thank You for allowing the pain that we’re experiencing to birth greatness in us! Transition us into new levels of Your anointing, opportunities, relationships, restoring that which is broken. Help us to move by faith, remembering not the former things but confidently reaching forward fully persuaded and anticipating that everything You’ve promised already is!

As we offer up this prayer of faith we speak life,  believing that You will cover our babies in daycare, our children in schools, our families, on their jobs, as they go and come in and that nothing shall cut our lives short, but we shall live and not die! Thank You for the great things You have prepared for the people of God!
Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher, Teacher Missionary, Deacon, musician choir director/member, praise team, liturgical dancer, usher and church member! 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.

Heavenly Father, as instructed, we pray for the leaders of our nation, corporate, judicial, education, financial institutions, health care providers, prison systems, community service worker! 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 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 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! Give us restful assurance that at the appointed time,You, will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word according to Your Riches in Glory!

Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of addiction, perversion 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 as we wait in confidence and quietness, we rejoice in hope, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, terrified 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, in closing, we stand in agreement with You who hears and answers our prayers, and forgives our transgressions!

LIVING WATERS

LIVING WATERS 2

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

He that believe on ME, as the Scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” John 7:38

When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. Isaiah 43:2

Because I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen…” Isaiah 43:20b

 

In the natural, most expectant mothers anticipating blessed arrival of her new baby with unrestrained excitement, shops until she drops! At the same time, the realization that before she actually holds her beautiful bouncing bundle of joy in her arms, she must first endure the grueling discomfort and pain of labor and delivery, can’t help but cause a certain degree of apprehension.

Every woman who has had a baby knows that as the labor progresses, the pain intensifies. Although we’re unable to accurately determine what the baby goes through, we can safely assume, by reason of anatomy, making its way through some extremely tight places causes a certain amount of discomfort for the child as well. For nine months, the womb has been his home and now, he’s reluctantly forced to transition into the next level of life.

Hence, spiritually, our rebirthing process also requires intense laboring for deliverance. Every blood washed, born-again, child of the Living God has been impregnated with purpose and potential. However, making our transition from one realm of spiritual reality into another, (from grace 2 grace) ultimately involves some degree of violent struggle. The ol’ church used to say, no pain – no gain!

Consequently, as we matriculate from one level of spiritual maturity to the next, we’re forced to navigate through some tight circumstances. Sometimes, just as in the natural birthing process, in order to hasten the birth and avoid the complications and dangers associated with a dry birth, the doctor may deliberately puncture the embryonic sack. This process is called “breaking the water”.

Likewise, to ensure that a believer transitions spiritually into our highest potential, the spiritual mid-wife, The Holy Spirit, fills His chosen with soul refreshing, sweet living waters drawn from the Wells of Salvation! This water is called Joy.  (Ref. Isaiah 12:3) This joy is not a state of mind neither is it a fleeting emotion; but to a believer facing the challenges and afflictions incurred through famine and drought of  the desert storms of life, JOY becomes a Weapon of Mass Destruction!

Saints, whatever you’re going through, YOU ARE NEVER ALONE!  While weeping may endure for a night, God has promised, Joy is coming in the morning!  (Ref. Psalm 30:5) God has chosen you as HIS very Own BELOVED!  Keep in mind that in God’s Kingdom, purpose always trumps pain! TRUST2KNOthat pain you’re now experiencing  is only a sign that Holy Spirit has just induced your labor and your water is about to break! 

Don’t sweat the process, God is positioning you into the next stage of Abundant Everlasting Life! #SERIOUSLY !!!

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAAZING!
We are excited and grateful that you’ve joined us once again in our Thursdays’ Corporate Fasting and Prayer! We’re eternally thankful to our Father, God for give us one more day to embrace and enjoy the Wonders of His Glory! We rejoice in The Hope that His Eyes are watching and His Ears are attentive to hear and intervene on our behalf as we enter into His Courts with praise and thanksgiving for You Alone are The Source of all everything that we will ever need in this life and the life to come!

What a friend we have in Jesus all our sins and grieves to bear! What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer. Oh what peace we often forfeit of what needless pain we bear; All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer…

O Come let us kneel before our Maker, as we acknowledge that we’re bowing before A GREAT GOD, The GOD above all gods; The King of kings and Lord of lords! We cry out, Abba Fathers, we come to The Ancient of Days, The Creator and Sustainer of every living creature…

Abba Father, we bless You for this new day, filled with Mercy and Grace to preserve us through any and every challenge that You allow to befall us today. We Thank You for Your inseparable Lovingkindness that continues to look beyond the iniquities of our frail, faulty, the fickleness of our fleshy frame and to forgive us for every sin that we do, speak or think that violates Your Holy Kingdom Commandments! As we confess our sins before You, we thank You now for this undeserved favor that we have inherited through The Sacrificial Atoning Blood of Your First-Begotten Son, In The Majestic Name of Jesus! Amen 3x!!!

Heavenly Father, we come, humbled by Your Everlasting Love, yet boldly in agreement with Kingdom Authority, recognizing that we’re living in the last of the last days and that while the enemy of our souls has launched a full-fledged attack against The Body of Christ and The Name of Jesus we know that You have sworn by God-Self to never leave nor forsake us!

Therefore, Father, we thank You for the antidote that allows all those who love You and Your Ways, having no other mind, to stand steadfast, immovable always abounding in Your Will and Your Word! We thank You for the honor and privilege afforded us as You teach us to war against the Satanic hosts, to come before You, earnestly seeking Your Presence and finding help and hope to overcome every weapon that’s formed against us! For You O Lord are The Rock of our Salvation, and there’s nothing too hard for OUR GOD! 

Sweet Holy Spirit, we come warring in the Spirit of Worship, thanking You for leading and guiding us, for You are our Great High Priest, and even when we don’t know what or how to pray, You intervene on our behalf, interpreting every moan and the groanings of our hearts today and presenting it to our Father!

Precious Lord, You , our Omniscient God, know everything about us! You know the battles that we’re facing, not just in our physical bodies but even in our minds! We ask that You rebuke the spirits of overwhelming fear, confusion, frustration, intimidation and condemnation that are enticing Your people to draw-back from the purpose, plan and things of God! We release The Blessing of God into the lives of Your people who are fainting even perishing for lack of vision. We speak deliverance from every opposing spirit and we declare victory as we put the enemy under our feet and stand in our rightful place as Children of Light, in Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

We rebuke every spirit that keeps your people shackled and cowardly silenced by the cares of this world. We pray against spirits of distractions, ungodly soul-ties, discords, divisions, illicit relationships, adulterous relationships and we resist the enemy’s power to hold Your people incarcerated in failure and defeat! Therefore we declare and decree that chains are being broken now as You are opening the door of escape in the Spirit, in Jesus Name! IT IS SO!

Abba Father, forgive us for failing in your Great Commission as we’ve become lackadaisical in our obligation, responsibility and yes, even our desire to plead for souls! Help Your church to remember that Jesus died for souls! Father we pray for the lost who have yet to receive Your Grace-filled Salvation! We ask that You quicken their hearts with a Spirit of Godly-Repentance allowing them to cry out to You for Salvation today! We pray for the backsliders who have for whatever reason, turned away from The Only Savior and left the Ark of Your Grace! Father, put a fresh “COMMITED YES” in their hearts and minds today, lead them back to the Altar and restore them back to Righteousness in Christ Jesus!

Father, please forgive us for succumbing to the culture of this world and allowing it to infiltrate the Church causing us to lust and store up the treasures of this world, the money, cars, houses, land, designer clothes, shoes, the latest electronic devices, hence, longing for the power, prestige and praises and approval of men, rather than focusing on establishing Your Kingdom in the earth!

Father, as our Good Shepherd, You instructed us to “Seek Ye First The Kingdom of God and all these other things would be added to us” We know that it brings pleasure to Your Heart that Your children prosper and be in good health, especially our souls! You promised that if we would faithfully walk upright before You, no good thing would be withheld from us!

Holy Father, we thank You for being Jehovah Rophe, The Lord our Healer therefore, as we lift up all who are being afflicted by physical diseases, spiritual and mental dis-eases! According to Your delegated Power and Authority, to declare and decree a thing according to Your Word and it has to come to past, in The Name of Jesus, we therefore rebuke, quarantine, bind and cast-out pancreatic, throat, breast, lung, liver, kidney, blood , brain, colon, bladder, uterus, rectal, stomach cancer, and confine it under The Blood of JESUS NOW! We RELEASE healing, wholeness, deliverance, quick and immediate recovery in The Holy Ghost, to hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation and dialysis centers, operating rooms, chemotherapy and psychiatric wards and prisons!

We’re believing that even as You walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re still Well Able to do the same right now! Lord Jesus, Your Word declares that by Your stripes we have been redeemed and healed 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 thank You for moving in our situations, doctor reports, court cases, employment issues and turning them around! We come against unsettled minds and according to Your Word, as we bring them to You in prayer and supplications with Thanksgiving, making everything known to You, we have the courageous confidence that everything that the enemy meant for evil, You are making it turn around for our highest good and Your Greatest Glory even before we see it manifested! We Shout HALLELUJAH!!!

Precious Jesus, hear us as we’re praying for our families, our secular and religious leaders. We intercede on behalf of all those who have submitted their lives, determined to Let the Kingdom of Heaven reign in and thru their lives and their ministries! We pray that they will speak Truth to edify and not words of deception in order to manipulate your people! We send the Word of God to their spirits now, anointing them and breaking every fetter that would captivate or hinder them. We speak a Spirit of Freedom, in The Holy Ghost, to those who are discouraged, discontent, fainthearted by worry and wearied in well-doing! We speak deliverance to every wounded spirit, troubled tormented minds, those that would entertain demonic enduced thoughts of suicide and murder, that desire to overtake our young people! My brother, my sista be Ye lifted up! Every hung-down head we Ye lifted up and receive an inner revelation of who and Whose they are in Christ Jesus!

Abba Father, we lift our children and our young people as they prepare to return to day-care facilities, elementary, middle/high schools, college campuses and we declare over them, as the carriers of our Magnificence and Glory, that they are saved, sanctified, walking free of fear and anxiety for their lives and personal safety. We rebuke the bullying spirits! We pray that our children will be equipped with keen discernment and will be able to recognize what it of You and what is of Satan! We thank You for the gifts of the Spirit that You have deposited within them, and that they shall be encouraged and utilized as You make room for them! Father, we pray that You keep their hearts and minds in perfect peace, let them be filled with hope for a awesome future that You have purposed for their lives while they were hidden in their Mothers’ wombs!

Sweet Holy Spirit, as we commit them into Your Providential care, realizing that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too., we have the Blessed Assurance that their steps are being ordered by Your eyes! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds and bodies releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!We cover them in The Blood-Stained Banner of Your Love even as we speak Salvation, Deliverance and Prosperity over their lives!We command the Blessings of God to follow them!
We pray for the grieving parents who lost their children to senseless violence! We ask that You comfort their hearts and minds, rebuke guilt, shame, doubt and regret for decisions that we might’ve made in their past concerning their children! We ask that You send a Spirit of Confident Assurance that as You graciously allow each of us to grow from Faith to Faith and Grace to Grace, our knowledge of You is enlarged enabling us to be transformed by the renewing our minds, proving what is that good, acceptable and perfect Will of God for our lives! And for this cause we Thank You Lord Jesus!

We pray for the leaders of this nation and the world. Lord, we ask that You touch those who don’t know You, fear nor regard You as Lord! Break up the fallow ground, prick their stony arrogant hearts with a spirit of humility that allows them to hear Your Voice even as You speak to them in dreams and visions! Cast down the spirit of high-mindedness, self-righteousness, carnality and pride! Let them come running to You, repenting and asking forgiveness, and seeking You for personal Salvation!

Father, as always, we recognize that there’s so much more that we should ask, but we are trusting that Holy Spirit is yet stirring up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name to pray without ceasing! We ask that You release upon our hearts, an ever-burning desire for an even greater personal, intimate relationship through fellowship with Holy Spirit, that we might prove what is the perfect and acceptable Will of The Lord Jesus!

Lord Jesus, Your children, the apple of Your Eye, await Your Salvation, in patient 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, therefore we’re trusting that we shall inherit the Promises of GOD!
Abba Father, because You have Sovereignly chosen and drawn us near that we might dwell safety and secure in Your House eternally, we rejoice in thanksgiving, as we align our spirits, soul and body with You Eternal Word! We bow in obedient reverence 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!

We delight ourselves in You, The Eternal Father, Who Guides and Rules Justly, believing that at Your Appointed Time…IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus we offer up this prayer, Sealed in The Holy Ghost with a HOLY Alleleujah! Amen 3X!
SELAH!

U CAN ALWAYS LEAN ON ME!

U CAN ALWAYS LEAN ON ME

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sshhhhh! Didjaheardat? SOMEONE’S CALLING YOUR NAME!

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

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

SELAH!

Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed. O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come. Psalm 65:1-2

We have thought, “O God, on Your lovingkindness, in the midst of Your temple.According to Your name, O God, So is Your praise to the ends of the earth; Your right hand is full of righteousness. Let Mount Zion rejoice. Let the daughters of Judah be glad, Because of Your judgments. Psalm 48:9-11

Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD. Psalm 134:2

 

Being Pentecostal, born and bred, means that I am accustomed, and I might add, an extremely willing participant, to exuberant praise and worship. So can you imagine my surprise, to discover that God-Honored Adoration is not necessarily limited to loud singing, hand-clappin’, foot-stomppin, shoutin’ and dancing to drum thumping, key-board tickling, guitar pick’n tunes escalating His Glory!

WHOKNU? There is a high praise in God, where the weary souls, thirsty and hungry for an escape from the chaos and confusion of this world’s clamor, finding rest, peace, security, strength and hope, fall prostrate into HIS PRESENCE!

There’s a secret place, a Cleft hued out in The Impregnable Rock of Salvation, where mere words are no longer necessary, and sighs are welcomed, giving way to hope-filled silence, birthing unspoken-bellows of acceptable obedient prayers and God-Centered Praise and Worship!

There is an epiphany where we all must ascribe to reach in God, where we practice appreciation and respect for HIM by disciplining ourselves, focusing our minds and making a conscious decision that regardless of my circumstances, I’m going to Bless Godnot just for all of His Goodness to me—BUT for WHO HE IS!

In this lofty estate, time spent waiting on The Lord is no longer full of anxious frustration, but quiet peaceful resting in child-like confident anticipation, trusting that you’re being kept safely, far from your conspirators’ reach, hidden in The Glory of His WONDEROUS PRESENCE.

As God’s Chosen, you’re surrounded by a Fortress, whose Builder and Maker is The Creator of The Universe, where we can breathe easily, waiting patiently, for as long as HE says,  fully assured that everything we will ever need and hope for comes from HIM—JESUS!

#DIDJAHEARDAT? The Holy Spirit is calling! Be still, in that ‘Peace-Filled-Knowing’ that all of your Help and Hope of Glory abides in The All-Powerful God,  EL SHADDAI…your FATHER AND your GOD!  NOW THAT’S A HIGHER PRAISE! #WOW #AWEMAAZIN, huh?

SELAH!
