ABLAZED WITH GLORY!

ABLAZED WITH GLORY 2

SELAH Daily Devotions!

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the Knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His Divine power has given to us all things that pertain To life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue by which Have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be Partakers of the divine nature, having escaped The corruption that is in the world through lust. 2 Peter 1:1-4

Didjakno? Today’s scripture text is penned by The Apostle Simon Peter! You know Peter, right? He’s the same cussin’ Peter who rejected Jesus three times, cut off the soldier’s ear, stepped out of the boat on the stormy sea and walked on the water to Jesus. Well, now Peter is a self-proclaimed bond-servant, Divinely ordained and authorized to speak on behalf of Jesus Christ! Now this really excites me! Why? Because it assures me of the unfathomable Mercies of our Loving Savior and that nothing in your past has the power to keep you from fulfilling your Destiny! Now to me that’s a good place to praise God, huh? Hold my mule…Halleleujahhhh!

We, having no right to such loving kindness, yet our Heavenly Father has  so graciously endowed us with His Divine Power, giving us everything that we need to escape the corruption of this world and to live a holy and godly life, not in heaven, but in this present world! Didjaheardat? Unbelievable, I know; but it’s True!

God has equipped every true Believers with His Presence in the indwelling Power of  Holy Spirit, transforming us into His Chariots of Fire in this earth!

We love to sing Donnie McKlurkin’s song, “We fall down, but we get up, we fall down, but we get up…because a saint is just a sinner who fell down, and got up”! Don’t get me wrong, I like that song too. However,  we can get a little twisted in our mindset, because of the craftiness of the devil, and without knowing it, we can actually be masking a spirit of rebellion behind the cloak of faith!  #ijs

Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound…GOD FORBID!” Romans 6:1-2

As disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, every one of us has been commissioned by God to reflect His Glory to this lost, dark and dying world.  Howeverrr, if we keep falling into the same old temptations over and over, flippantly counting on the favor of God to show up in our pit to rescue you out of the same old mess, how’s God’s Glory being manifested?

According to The Holy Ghost, True Glory is manifested when a believer demonstrates righteousness thru faithful obedience. When you make a genuine commitment to deny the ungodly appetites of your flesh, rather than to bring reproach to the Name of His Lord and Savior, not only are you relying upon God’s Power to deliver you, you’re also proving your love and gratitude for all that Jesus did to redeem you back to your Heavenly Father! Seriously!

Our journey to Heaven is plagued with unexpected, trouble, chaos and tragedy, however knowing that The Promise Keeper is able to open up pathways that you know not of, make ways out of no way, open doors that have been shut and carries us triumphantly thru every valley to the mountaintops, fortifies our spirit with HOPE! As we experience His miraculous deliverances, it develops our confidence so much so that when our faith is challenged by difficulties, we don’t give up, we look up!

As true carrier of God’s Glory, we plant our faith in the Eternal Word of God’s Grace!

Having done all to stand, we yet stand, steadfast, unmovable, always abounding, continuously expanding, exceeding all natural expectations, daring to taunt and frustrate the evil plans of the wicked, with holy boldness, testifying ‘Satan, every now and then, I might have to bend, BUT KNOW THIS, I REFUSE 2 BOW”!

NOW, IN TIMES LIKE THIS, YOU’RE JUS WHAT THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR! GO AHEAD, BURN BABY BURN! LIGHT UP THE WORLD PROCLAIMING, ‘TO GOD BE THE GLORY! KEEP THE FIYA BURNING!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

ENTER IN, OOOHH, ENTER IN…BOW DOWN AND WORSHIP HIM…

 

Abba Father, thank You for 1 more new day! Thank You for awakening us to enjoy all the many blessings that You have provided for each one of us! We bless You for fresh Mercy and Grace! We know that there’s nothing we have, canor will ever do that entitles us to be benefactors of such benignity, but You continue to look beyond all our faults to provide all that we shall ever need! For this cause, we bow in absolute humility reverently declaring that there is none like You in Heaven or Earth! In You we live, move and have our very being!

Sweet Jesus, we glorify Your Name above every other name because You Alone are Savior, Lord and Redeemer! Because of the shedding of Your Atoning Sacrificial Blood, we have been brought into right fellowship with our Heavenly Father, whereby we have the same blessings and privileges that You have as the 1st Begotten of The Father! We rejoice in praise singing,”If it had not been for The Lord on my side, where would we be!”

Lord Jesus, in light of all that’s happening in the earth today, we’re eternally grateful that You have taught us to say, it is well with our souls! Because You have assured us that even in these days of impending chaos, terror, drama and threatening destruction, our lives are hidden in You and You are yet in control of all things! We bless You for the confidence that we have in knowing that the safest place in the whole world in in YOUR PERFECT WILL! 

Father, while we strive to please You in all that we do, say and think, because of the frailty and flaws of our fickled flesh, we tend to all fall short of Your righteous expectations, willfully and unwillfully! Therefore, we come, repenting and confessing our sins to our Great High Priest, Who can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities, asking that You forgive us, wash us in The Blood of Jesus, restore us into the sheepfold and strengthen us by the indwelling Power and Presence of Holy Spirit that we may live our lives reflecting the abundance of Your Love, Grace and Mercy to a lost and dying world! Father, we believe that the continuous outpouring of Your Divine Favor towards us will cause multitudes of men, women, boys and girls to come asking, what must I do to be saved! In Jesus Name, Amen 3x!
Precious Lord, we know that no man can come to You, except You draw them, therefore we ask that You prick the hearts of every lost and back-slidden soul with a personal desire to draw nigh to You!  You’ve promised that when we draw near to You, You shall draw near to us! We pray that You save the lost, reclaim every back-slider by putting a “sincere and committed YES”, into their hearts and minds! Enable them to come today and receive You as their personal Savior and Lord of their lives! Bless, place  and settle them into a church home today where they will be embraced with The Love of God, encouraged, nurtured and strengthened in Your Word to live the rest of their lives, glorifying The Light of Your Likeness to those yet ensnared by the darkness of this dying world! In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Precious Lord, we lift us all those who are grieving the lost of a loved one, those who have been victimized by all manner of abuse and neglect, those who’s marriages are in turmoil and threatening separation or divorce,  financial distress due to lost of employment, bankruptcy and foreclosures! We plead the Blood of Jesus over thoughts, spirits of fear, doubt, anxiety, oppression, depression and confusion, because we know that You are not the author of these demonic thoughts and feelings, but You have given us who have put our trust in Your Son Jesus, Your Righteousness, Love and Joy in The Holy Ghost!  As we lift up every believer who is yet holding on to your Hand by faith today, we pray that You will release a double anointing of Your Divine Peace, Power, Supernatural Strength, Provision, Prosperity and Protection. In Jesus Name! It is so!

We ask also Father, that You preserve them thru every test that You have allowed us to go thru confidently assure that You will bring us out restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in your Word. Encourage our hearts, with Your Word that empowers us with an overwhelming consciousness of Your Abiding Presence causing us to confuse our enemies with exuberant praise and worship lifting up The Only Wise Savior and Lord Jesus!

Father, we believe that You  will touch our brother, touch our sister who has been afflicted by any sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, heart, lung, liver and kidney failure, high/low blood pressure, HIV/Aids, arthritis, dementia, autism and other mental disorders! Heal, rebuke and cast out every symptom and trace of  all physical, mental dysfunction at the root, for Your Name Sake. We come into agreement with your Word and declare that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! And as You are strengthening these, we ask that you also invigorate, encourage and replenish the spirits, souls, minds and bodies of those who are charged to care for their loved ones!

Father, once again, we lift up our children, our grand and great grands and by faith we’re canceling every plot and strategic scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your providential care, we have the blessed assurance that because You have a plan and purpose for their lives too, every one of their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by Your Sovereign Eyes! We believe that The Blood of Jesus is covering them and shielding them from the snare of Satanic deception, In Jesus Name, Amen 3x!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Evangelist, Preach, Teacher, Deacon, auxiliary leader and member! We ask for an immediate manifestation of that special miracle for each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the Power, Conviction and Anointing of Holy Spirit. Undergird them with Your Anointing and Holy 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. Grace Your menservants and maidens to be authentic examples of holiness, in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall deeply in love, trust wholly in and live their lives faithfully serving You! In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Father, in the midst of looming darkness and despair, we ask that You stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name and empowering them with 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!

Knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying as You have instructed us, for the leaders of our nation and the world, every corporate, judicial, education, financial, health care institutions, public service and military individuals! We’re trusting that You are touching their minds and hearts, speaking to them in dreams and visions and 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 ears and hearts 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!

We ask that Holy Spirit continue to open the eyes of understanding so that Your people are not easily deceived by those who would desire to entrap Your children in bondage to lustful desires  which You have delivered us from. We declare and decree that every demonic-induced spirit of  anxiety, temptation, lasciviousness, addiction, greed, covetness, unforgiveness, resentment, rejection, self-hate, suicide, fear and failure, guilt and shame is already defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness is being released now, in Jesus Name AMEN 3X!

Heavenly Father, as we rejoice now in confident quietness, we trust that all workers of iniquity are suddenly trembling in terror and departing in shameful defeat, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayers as sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

ABBA FATHER, WE  NOW THANK, HONOR AND PRAISE YOU, BECAUSE WE  WHO KNOW YOUR NAME, PUT OUR TRUST IN YOU, KNOWING THAT YOU LORD HAVE NOT FORSAKEN ANY THAT SEEK YOU! WE SEAL OUR PRAYER, IN THE EXALTED NAME OF JESUS.  HALLELUJAH &AMEN 3x!

Good Morning my Precious Chosen! GOTTA MOMENT? Didjaknow, that the only reason u r able to read this post is because Our Heavenly Father has blessed u to be alive one more day? Yep! And for that, please join me in exalting The Glorious Name of Jesus! As is our custom on Thursdays, once again we, encourage you to join us in our weekly day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting! There are many sickly, weak, afflicted, ill-treated or faint of heart among us, therefore as James 5:13 instructs, let us utilize the honor and privilege afforded us by our Heaven Father! Shall we pray?

WELCOME, INTO THIS PLACE! WELCOME INTO THIS BROKEN VESSEL! YOU DESIRE TO ABIDE IN THE PRAISES OF YOUR PEOPLE, SO WE LIFT OUR HANDS, AND WE LIFT OUT HEARTS AND WE OFFER UP THIS PRAISE UNTO YOUR NAME! WELCOME HOLY SPIRIT! WE ARE IN YOUR PRESENCE! FILL US WITH YOUR POWER…LIVE INSIDE OF ME! YOU’RE MY LIVING WATER, NEVERENDING FOUNTAIN! COMFORTER AND COUNSELOR, TAKE COMPLETE CONTROL…we bow down in HIS Presence…

 

Abba Father, it is with great joy that we entreat Thy Seat of Mercy today! Trusting confidently that You have afforded us this awesome privilege not because we deserve it, but based solely upon Your Loving-Kindness towards us, that draws us into Your All Emcompassing Presence.

Sweet Jesus, we Thankya for Your commitment, to so please The Heart of The Father, that You willingly sacrificed Your Life in our stead, that we might become Sons of The True and Living God! And for this cause, we bow in humble gratitude, fully aware that as we come before You, empty and void of anything that would warrant such awesome graciousness, but because of Your Righteousness we are now beneficiaries of All that You are in the Eyes of the Creator of All Living things!

Father, we know that You already know everything about every single one of us, because You are Omniscient and Omnipresent, but since You walked 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! Therefore 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 Jesus, for being our Very Present Help in troubling times!

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

Heavenly Father, we’re forever blessing You for continuing to renew our strength, understanding and power as we open our hearts to You, depending and relying only on You. And as we lift our hands and our hearts yielded before You, we pray for those who are unsaved, believing You to ignite a spirit of Godly-repentance that they may confess “sincere YES” in their heart and mind provoking a desire to surrender their lives to You today and receive You as their personal Savior and Lord!

Lord, we’re believing You to put a “committed YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider that this will be the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR church where they will be greeted with lovingkindness, nurtured in the Will and Ways of Your Word, dedicating the rest of their lives to glorifying You in these last and evil days to a lost and dying world!

Father, we ask that You touch our brother, touch our sister who is afflicted by any sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, heart and lung disease, diabetes, high/low blood pressure, those in need of transplants, those suffering from knee, back, hip and shoulder pain, we pray that You will rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake! We come into agreement with Your Word and declare that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up! And as You are strengthening these, we ask that you also envigorate, encourage and replenish the spirits, minds and bodies of those who are charged to care for their loved ones In Jesus Name!

Lord, we pray for every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, trusting that You will release Divine power, Supernatural Strength, Consolation, Health and Wholeness, Favor, Provision, Prosperity, Protection and Peace. We ask, Father, that You preserve them thru the tests that they must go thru and keeping them hidden in the secret place YOUR PRESENCE, resting confident that at the appointed time You shall bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word. Amen 3x!

Father, as we lift up our children, our childrens’ children and by faith, we cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them, we commit them into Your Providential care, acknowledging that You have a plan and purpose for their lives, we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely ordered by Your eyes! We rejoice in Thy Salvation!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Evangelist, Preach, Teacher, Deacon, auxiary leader and member! We ask for an immediate manifestation of that special miracle for each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the Power, Conviction and Anointing of Holy Spirit. 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. Grace Your menservants and maidens to be authentic examples of holiness, in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall deeply in love, trust wholly in and live their lives faithfully serving You! In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Father, we know that You keep Covenant with those who keep covenant with you; therefore in the midst of looming darkness and despair, we ask that You stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name, empowering them with a fresh 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!

Knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying as You have instructed us, for the leaders of our nation and the world, every corporate, judicial, education, financial, health care institutions, public service and military individuals! We’re trusting that You are touching their minds and hearts, speaking to them in dreams and visions and 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 ears and hearts 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!

Precious Lord!, continue to open the eyes of our understanding so that Your people are not easily deceived by those who would desire to entrap Your children in bondage to that which You have delivered us from. Help us to understand that salvation only comes to those who trust in the Name of Your First Begotten Son, Jesus ALONE as the Only Power to save us.

Father, we believe that every demonic-induced spirit of anxiety, temptation, addiction, rejection, self-hate, suicide, fear and failure, guilt and shame is already defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness is being released now, in Jesus Name!

Father, we rejoice now in confiden quietness, trusting that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shame, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayers as sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

ABBA FATHER, WE THANK, HONOR AND PRAISE YOU NOW! FOR WE THAT KNOW YOUR NAME AND PUT OUR TRUST IN YOU, KNOW THAT YOU LORD HAVE NOT FORSAKEN ANY THAT SEEK YOU! WE SEAL OUR PRAYER, IN THE EXALTED NAME OF JESUS. AMEN 3x!

GM FBF! GOTTA MOMENT? GREAT GOD ALMIGHTY!

We’re delighted that you have joined us today in our Weekly Corporate Thursdays’ Prayer and Fasting! While the world is foolishly looking to man to deliver us, we, Your Children, in faithful obedience, look to You, JESUS, The Author and Finisher of our Faith to cause us to NOT JUS SURVIVE BUT THRIVE in the day of evil! Let’s pray…Ooops Care2Share?

Reach out and touch The Lord, as He goes by! You’ll find He’s not too busy to hear your cry! He IS PASSING BY THIS MOMENT! UR NEED HE WILL SUPPLY! REACH OUT AND TOUCH THE LORD AS HE GOES BY! O, Sweet Wonder! Oh Sweet Wonder! Jesus, The Son of God! Ooohh Sweet Wonder! Oh! Sweet Wonder! Jesus! The Son of God! Here I am to worship, Here I am to bow down, Here I am to say that You’re my God, You’re altogether lovely, Altogether worthy, Altogether wonderful to me!

Our Father and Our God, we come this morning, eternally grateful for Your Loving-Kindness and Tender Mercy us that has been bestowed upon us! For this is the day that You have made and we SHALL REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT! With joy-filled humbled hearts, we set our attentions on things above and not below, knowing that You Forever Rule and Reign! You are Elohim, LORD, GOD, ALMIGHTY, JEHOVAH all by YOURSELF! Beside YOU, there is none else to revere, fear and none to compare! For You are HOLY!

Throughout the Ages, You Alone have proven to be The Only Wise God, Savior and Lord of all, in and through all! As You have blessed and favored us, we now come boldly before Your Throne, lifting up The Name that is above all names, The Sweetest Name we know, JESUS!

SWEET JESUS, we’re thankful that because You are Enthoned at The Right Hand of The Father, clothed in Majesty as The Great and Eternal High Priest, Who voluntarily stripped GODself to come down and walk amongst us, allowing Yourself to be wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, bore our guilt and shame and have been touched with the feelings of our infirmities! It’s only by Your Graciousness, we are able to approach You confident that Your Mercy has imputed ALL THAT JESUS IS unto us! Therefore, we stand in this Amazing Grace, resting assured that In Christ Jesus, we are The Righteousness of God, Forgiven, Redeemed, Restored and inheriting all the riches and glory of Thine Eternal Kingdom!

Abba Father, as we come today with our our hearts rejoicing, hands lifted up and our lips forever praizing You we declare, Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping! Because You know our frame, Your faithfulness and compassion continuously allows You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to see and yet minister to all of our real need! Because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God You keep right on blessing us over and over again! With sincere Godly-repentance, we ask You to forgive us this day for any and everything we have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to Your Heart. As we confess our sin, You are Faithful and Just to forgive, pardon and restore us back into rightful fellowship with You, we ask now for Your forgiveness, in The Precious Name of Jesus!

And because no man can come to The Father, except You draw them, we pray for the lost and the blind who have no personal revelation of Who You are an all that You’ve Done for us! We ask that You open their eyes to see the lawless of their 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! Hence, we pray that You quicken their spirits to repent immediately, and confess with their mouths their wrongdoing that they might receive the Gracious forgiveness of our Heavenly Father! As You have forgiven me, Lord forgive them for their sins, because they know not what they do!

Lord God, because Your Word declares that You are married to the backslider, we ask You to put a  “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 where they will submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, and learn to love and live their lives walking to please You First!

Father, there are so many who are faced with many different situations. Some are dealing with hurt, pain, illnesses, sorrow and grief. Some are battling depression and oppression; addictions, low self esteem and the list goes on and on. Many are contemplating throwing in the towel on your spouse, your family; some simply don’t know what to do. As Your Word has instructed, we now look to the hills from whence cometh all our help; knowing that whatever challenges we’re faced with, You are still in control.

Jehovah Rophe, 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 and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. 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 we declare and decree that The God of ALL Peace, Love, Hope, Wholeness and Serenity is covering and comforting each one of us even as we pray! Amen 3x!

Dear Lord, we’re believing that as You are releasing Divine power, Supernatural strength and health, provision, prosperity and protection, we’re trusting that You will keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that at the appointed time, You, will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised in Your Word!

Heavenly Father, as You have instructed us, we pray for the leaders of our nation and the world and every corporate, judicial, education, financial institutions! We ask 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 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 thatThe government of this world shall rest upon Your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Abba Father, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher, Teacher and auxiliary leader. 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!

Father, we’re lifting up our children, our children’s children by faith, as many of them are about to begin a new school year, some are entering the workforce, hence, we’re committing them into Your care, realizing that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too; we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by Your eyes!

Lord Jesus, when the cares of this world begins to close in on us, help us to slip away and find a quiet place to pray! And in those moments when we can’t pray, we know that You listen to our hearts and interpret every moan, groan and sigh of our spirits! Father, we thank You that despite our fractures and dysfunctions, You yet continue to bless us that we may be a blessing to others. You keep us strong that we may help the weak. You will keep us uplifted that we may have words of encouragement for others. You will strengthen our hearts to pray for those who are lost and can’t find their way, pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood, those who don’t know You intimately and for those who don’t believe that You sent Jesus not to condemn us, but to convict us and to free us from the power, pain and penalty of Sin!

Abba Father, we know that You have instructed us to look not at the temporary things but to the eternal, so please help those whose hearts are burdened with the pressures of this life, wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness and disease, financial debt, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions, insecurities and grief, the widows, the downcast who have born the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through! Lord, give them sweet Peace! Lord, keep us as only You can!

Father, help us to not complain about things that are out of our control and enlighten us to recognize that faith in God not only changes people, it changes me; and only You, O God have the Power to change things!

As we near the close of our prayer, we’re praising You for peace, unity, love and joy in our homes; believing that Your Divine Favor is being poured out upon everyone now and their faith is rising to a level that they’re faithful and obedient to live everyday as You have commanded, allowing You to release supernatural abundance in every area of our lives, because we have committed to put You first,all our needs are met. In Jesus Name!
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’re 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!
Lord Jesus, while there are many other things that we have yet to mention, we’re trusting that You are not just able, but You’re willing to do anything that we ask and imagine, according to You Perfect Will. We decree and declare, believing You to fix IT Jesus, as only You can!
Abba Father, we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that You have listened, 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! We thank You and seal this Prayer In The Holy Ghost, for WE KNOW THAT IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES AND CARES ABOUT U2!

SELAH!

MY BFF!

MY BFF

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

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. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10

 

Being next to the oldest of seven kids, I can’t remember exactly when the desire for personal playmates sprouted. Perhaps, that’s why my social skills were noticeably under-developed when it came to fitting in with ‘other than sibling’ cliques. I guess you’d call that shyness, huh? Needless to say, I was generally the least likely to be picked first in just about everything! Every now and then someone would dare to look beyond the outward appearance and see a real me thereby forging relatively long-term fellowships! Hence, down thru the years I’ve learned to treasure my short list of BFF’s!

In retrospect, who knows what unknown paths of destruction The Sovereign Lord was re-directing me out of? Lord knows I’ve had my share of unrecognized ‘BUT GOD’ experiences and am eternally grateful that I survived to tell it! Topping the list will always be my day of personal revelation of The God who knows everything about me, from the inside out, and yet loves me unconditionally faithfully! Until I met Jesus, I never imagined that I was already accepted and beloved by the TRUE SOURCE of Life and Love! (Ref. Ephesians 1:6)

WOW! After all the time I’d spent trying to escape the pain, punishment and penalty of being born naughty by nature, only to discover that I could not do it on my own. It took The Power of God, to re-create and re-purpose me to live free to glorify my Creator! While we’re so busy with the ‘going and getting’ business of life, cluelessly running away from HIM, we miss His Voice drawing us to rest in His Presence, Power and Peace! Whoknu?

Before the foundation of the world, GOD The Father ordained that The RESTORER of EVERY breach, the BRIDGE from death to life, JESUS, to heal ALL the brokeness of our soul’s infirmities and to preserve us thru the EMPOWERING PRESENCE of HOLY SPIRIT, as we sojourn in this world awaiting the ultimate translation to our eternal reunion in Heaven!

Shamefully, in our relentless pursuit of the riches of this world (with no regard for the consequences), too often we neglect The One who is constantly pursuing us, longing to fulfill the intimate fellowship!

To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27

Knowing that God intends for us to live happy, healthy and whole abiding in the indwelling Spirit of Jesus Christ allows you and I to enjoy  a lifestyle of unimaginable favor found only in an incomparable eternal personal relationship with the INFINITE new BFF, HOLY SPIRIT! #howboutU? #REALLY?

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

SELAH Daily Devotions!    

Your mercy and loving kindness, O Lord, extend to the skies, and Your faithfulness to the clouds, Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; Your judgments are like the great deep; O Lord, You preserve man and beast. How precious is Your steadfast love, O God! The children of men take refuge and put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.  They relish and feast on the abundance of Your house and You cause them to drink of the stream of Your pleasures. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light do we see light. O continue Your loving-kindness to those who know You, Your righteousness (salvation) to the upright in heart. Let not the foot of pride overtake me, and let not the hand of the wicked drive me away.  PSALMS 36:6-11

 

Really, I don’t want to be just another voice flippantly spewing Pentecostal clichés, but  hear the sincerity of my heart’s cry… “WHEN I THINK OF THE GOODNESS OF JESUS, AND ALL THAT HE’S DONE FOR ME, MY HEART CRIES OUT HALLELUJAH, I THANK GOD FOR SAVING ME”!

It’s totally mind-boggling that the Creator of the universes actually cared enough for ‘us‘ to sacrifice His Only Begotten Son in order that we might be adopted into His Family! (Ref. Isaiah 53:10)

Looking back I never imagined that I’d be a Child of The King. I was one of ‘them’ who used to laugh and joke about ‘yall’ Christians. In fact, I can distinctly remember, blatantly ignorant proclaiming, “I know  me and all my friends gonna be parta’n down in Hell!”

All the while, completely unbeknownst to me, Satan was plotting to destroy me! BUT GOD had predestined Purpose for my life! Before the foundation of the world, God set in Eternity, His appointed time to fulfill my Destiny!  (Ref. Romans 6:5)

No wonder, we so easily identify with The Psalmist’s losing himself in the midst of exaltation, worship and praise at The Magnificence and Marvelous Works of God!  Truthfully, GOD can’t be praised enough!

O the Wonder of His Glory to allow ol’ wretched men, to approach His Throne, surrendering our bankrupted lives in exchange for His Loving-Kindness, Tender Mercy and His Saving Grace!  I still don’t know how or why!  But—I’m soooo glad He did!

We can only conclude, ‘HE’S A WONDER’!  GOTTA LOVE HIM!

SELAH!

Good Morning Family! GOTTA MOMENT? GREAT! LET’S PRAY…

 

BECAUSE OF WHO U R, WE GIVE U GLORAAA…BCUZ OF WHO U R, WE GIVE U PRAIZ! BECAUSE OF WHO U R, I WILL LIFT MY VOICE AND SAY, LORD, I WORSHIP U, BCUZ OF WHO U R…HERE WE ARE TO WORSHIP, HERE WE ARE TO BOW DOWN, HERE WE ARE TO SAY THAT YOU’RE OUR KING! YOU’RE ALTOGETHER LOVELY, ALTOGETHER WORTHY, ALTOGETER WONDERFUL 2 me…

Father in Heaven, here we are before you once again. We come today with outstretched arms, open hands and grateful hearts, for this is the day that You have made! Therefore we’re rejoicing in The Splendor of Your Magnificent Glory! We know that it’s only because of Your Grace and Mercy, that we’re yet here! It’z because of Your love for us, You have allowed us one more day to enjoy life, health and strength. We’re thankful for another opportunity to present ourselves as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable unto you.

From our Mother’s womb, You’ve proven Yourself to be Faithful and True; therfore, we’re trusting You to provide everything that we need today to sustain us thru whatever challenges that unfold during the course of this day! Abba Father, we know that You Alone are our God, Guard and Guide!

Father, with eternal gratitude we bless You for allowing us to enter into Your Throne Room, with hope-filed expectation that you will entreat us graciously as we pour out the burdens that seem to overwhelm our hearts, releasing everything that concerns us to you! Lord Jesus, because we know that You are Omniscient, Omnipresent, You see and You already know everything about everyone of us, yet you have welcomed us to come to you, to find Grace and Mercy to comfort, strengthen and encourage us to hold on to every Word that You have spoken over our lives, before we were born.

Daddy, as we stand humbly before Your Sovereignty, before we go any further, we’re asking You to forgive us for everything that we, your children, have spoken, done and even thought that was not pleasing in Your sight. We thank You now because You have assured us that if we would confess our sins, You, Heavenly being Faithful and Just, will forgive us, and wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, cleansing us from all unrighteousness, and restoring the breach that our disobedience has caused between our poor souls and our Lord and Savior, Jesus!

Now, we ask Holy Spirit to intercede for us, on our behalf, our family, our friends, even our enemies, as we know that Your love is the same to each and everyone of us!

Abba, we know that You have instructed us, to look not at the temporary things, but to the eternal, yet You know the frailness of our flesh, and how easily we’re provoked and tempted to become overwhelmed by the cares of this world, that our hearts are burdened with the pressures of this life, that some of us are wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness and disease, financial debt, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions, insecurities.

Lord you know that sometimes we lose our focus on You causing our days to be spent beneath clouds of evil foreboding, while our nites are plagued with restlessness, despondency and hopelessness! Lord, keep us in Your Will, as only You can!

Lord we pray that you will save, heal and deliver speedily by Your Mighty Hand,all those who are crying out to you, seeking Your Face at the 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 You hve declared the righteous run into it and are saved.

Open up our minds and our hearts, filling us with Your Assurance, and confidence that at The Name of Jesus, every knee must bow and every tongue confess that You are Lord! Grace your children with hope-filled trust that You, Father have committed Your Word towards us that no weapon that’s formed us shall ever prosper and except You allow it, no trouble, test or trial can come near us. We thank you Lord, for fully persuading us our of Providential Presence and Power to turn everything around to work in our favor and to bring about exuberant testimonies and praizes of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory!

Father, we thank you now for listening to the hearts of everyone reading and praying with us. We thank you for hearing the hearts of those who have never trusted and accepted Your Son Jesus as Savior and Lord! We are thankful that Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart now and that they shall come to You humbled by Your Lovingkindness, in obedient to Your call and are now receving your Mercy and Grace to Save. We pray now that You are leading and guiding them to the local church, planting them inYour Vineyard, where they shall be taught and transformed by Your Word of Life to take their position in The Kingdom of Heaven.

Father, we pray for those who are distraught by grief and fear, the elderly, the widows, the downcast who have born the heat of the day, especially those who pushed and prayed us through! Father, give them sweet peace. Lord, we pray for the leaders of governments world-wide, their hearts are in Your Hands, visit them in the night season and command them to do Your Will.

Lord, I pray for every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, that You are releasing Divine power, Supernatural strength and health, provision, prosperity and protection. Father, we’re trusting that You shall preserve them thru the tests that they must go thru and keep them constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that You will bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word!

Father, we thanking You for an outpouring of Your Divine Favor upon each and every one of your children who are seeking employment, promotion, prompt approval for student/car/home loans and assure them that YOU are YET HE, Jehovah Jareh, who shall supply all of their need according to Your Riches in Glory!

Father we decree and declare that every demonic-induced spirit of addiction 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!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher. Undergird them with Your Anointing 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 the ministryYou have ordained.

Lord, there are so many other things, that we have yet to mention, but we’re trusting, believing you to fix it, Jesus, as only You can! Lord, we know that You are not just able, but willing to do anything that we ask, in accorance to Your Word, in Jesus Name!

As we offer us this prayer, Father we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shame, turning their backs from Your people, 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 done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X

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