For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Romans 8:29

The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple. Psalm 119:130

 

Back in my B.C. days (before Christ, y’all), I met this very special lady. Subsequently, Ms. Annette and I grew as close as two peas in a pod. Whoever coined the phrase “a little bit of country and a little bit of rock n’ roll” had to have met my friend “Anna” (self-identification of her alter-ego). By day, Ms. Annette was a successful-sophisticated-know-her-stuff-RN. BUT! By nite, that Hattiesburg-Mississippi-Black Water-Country-Ebonic-Talk’n-parta’-down-like it was 1999-Anna would emerge! And guess who would try to hang-out right with her? Exactly!

Evrrrr noticed, that if you spend a lot of time around someone you admire, who happens to have a strangely-peculiar personality, the strangely-peculiar affect they tend to have on you? Startlingly, without consciously realizing when nor how(until my kids so happily pointed out to me) my conversation conspicuously became sporadically seasoned with some of the same words, same dialect and same mannerisms as my friend! Obviously, a little bit of “Anna” had rubbed off on me!

Didjaknow? It works the exact same way when it comes to strengthening your personal relationship with God! #4REAL!

As believers, the Father’s Plan is to mold us into the image of JESUS! The moment you are born again, Holy Spirit begins the process of Supernatural Empowered Transformation of our spirit until it looks just like Him. Spiritually,  when you sincerely ask God to forgive you of your sins and come into your heart, you were instantly changed on the inside; howevvvrrrrr, the progression of outward change depends largely upon us! #Didjaheardat?

Evidently, there’s a significant correlaation between the amount of time spent pursuing the things of the Spirit and the rate of our personal spiritual growth and development. If most of our time is spent satisfying the lustful desires of our  sin-loving flesh, inevitably our spiritual growth will be stunted!  Don’t shout me down nah! #ijs!

However, as you begin to separate yourself apart  from the worldly (carnal and ungodly) things of life (#sanctify) and deligently dedicate more time to studying The Word of God and mounting habitual alone-time with Him (consecrate), The Holy Spirit will ecstatically teach, guide and share Christ-Likeness with you.  Hence, He’s gonna rub off on you until His ways become your ways!

The more readily you yield the more of you to HIM, abiding in His Presence in prayer, meditating in His Word and surrending yourself in worship, you will be absolutely amazed at the miraculous change that will take place on the inside and out! I’m telling you, personally, you’ll hardly recognize that new man in the mirror! Seriously!!!

Truthfully, until you have a real-life personal encounter of The Divine-Kind, you are clueless of Who and Whose You REALLY ARE? Not to mention the worth and purpose that’s yet to be revealed in and through The GOD IN YOU!

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. Isaiah 60:1 #Didjaheardat?

Ohh, by the way, guess who introduced me to Jesus Christ? Yep, Anna!  My friend has since gone HOME to be with The Lord, BUT THANKYA JESUS 4 unexpected Angels, huh?

I “D-DOUBLE-DARE” YA! LET MORE OF JESUS RUB OFF ON YOU!

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAAZIN’!

Once again, we invite you to join us in our Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We bless the Lord for every opportunity to enter into His Presence, rejoicing in hope-filled expectation that He hears every prayer and supplication offered before His Throne of Mercy and Grace! Those of us who know The Word and Worth of Prayer also know that our prayers have no expiration date, therefore we have the assurance that as we pray, believing that we have received the petitions we’ve placed before Him, He rewards our hearts with confident patience to trust that no good things will be withheld from us as we strive to walk upright before Him! Let’s enter in…

Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, Just to take Him at His Word! Just to rest upon His promise,
Just to know, “Thus saith the Lord!” Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him! How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er! Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! Oh, for grace to trust Him more!

ABBA FATHER, I stretch my hand to THEE! No other help I know! If THY withdraw THYSELF from me…where shall I go For You Alone have given us The Promise of Eternal LIFE!
Father in Heaven, as we come before You once again, we come with outstretched arms, upstretched empty hands and grateful hearts, for this is the day that You have made! Therefore, as we delight ourselves in The Splendor of Your Magnificent Glory, our mouths are filled with worship and praise to The Only Wise God our Savior and Lord!

We know that it’s only because of Your Grace and Mercy, that we’re blessed to yet BE here and knowing that we’re here!  Father, we know that sometimes we tend to take Your many blessings for graned but today we pause to say, Thankya Father for blessing us with a roof over our heads, with strength to get out of bed, put clothes on our backs, shoes on our feet and food on our table! We know that there’s nothing we’ve done that warrants such graciousness, and it’s only because of Your love for us, You have allowed us more more day to enjoy life, health and strength! We’re thankful for one more 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; hence, 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 look to You and You Alone to be our God, Guard and Guide!

Lord Jesus, because You are Omniscient, Omnipresent, You see and You already know everything about everyone of us, yet You have welcomed us to come to you, finding 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 for Your assurance that as we confess our sins, You, Heavenly Father, being Faithful and Just, will forgive us, and wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, cleansing us from all unrighteousness, will restore the breach that our disobedience has caused between our poor souls and our Lord and Savior, Jesus!  Holy Spirit,  intercede on our behalf, our family, our friends, even our enemies, as we know that Your love is the same for each and everyone of us!

Daddy,  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! You also know Lord, that our hearts are easily burdened with the pressures of this life, and that some of Your Saints are becoming wearied and overwhelmed by fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness and disease, financial debt, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions, insecurities. Lord, You can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities and know the struggle that we experience and that sometimes causes us to lose our focus on You leaving our days to be spent beneath clouds of evil foreboding, while our nites are plagued with restlessness, despondency, despairs and hopelessness! 

Lord, we thankya for being a Caring Listening God! We thankya for the Word teaches us that even when our lips cannot articulate properly what we need to pray, Holy Spirit searches the deep secret things of our Hearts and that The Blood of Jesus rushes to the places that hurt the most! King Jesus, we pray keep us in Your Will, as only You can AND PERFECT EVERY ONE OF OUR CONCERNS!

Sweet Jesus, we lift up our children, grand-children and great-grand children, help us to remember that such were some of us! We decree and declare that every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them, IS HEREBY SUDDENLY CANCELLED, and RECOILED! As we commit them into Your Providential Care, we acknowledge that Your Plan and Purpose for their lives cannot be over-ruled! We have the blessed assurance that EVERY STEP AND STOP IS BEING ORDERED UNDER THE WATCHFUL CARE OF YOUR EYES AND NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST THEM SHALL PROSPER AND EVERYTHING THAT PERTAINS TO THEIR DESTINY OF LIFE AND GODLINESS IS FULLFILLED! 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-ORDAIN DESTINIES, IN JESUS NAME IT IS SO!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we trust that You ears are not deaf to the cries of our fathers, mothers, Grandfathers, Grand Mothers, husbands,wives, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, nephews, nieces and cousins, aunts and uncles all over this world, even these UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! As we’re praying, Your ears are tuned to the blood of those victims, violently slain in our streets by those who’ve allowed the enemy to use them to destroy so many precious lives! Lord, help us to pray for mercy rather than vengeance, as You have demonstrated thru Your Sacrificial death, burial, resurrection and Ascension!
You taught us to love everyone that You’ve created in Your Own Image, however, we cannot deny that we need You to heal the pain, anger, grief and distrust,and yes even that glimpse of revenge that taints the hearts of Your people at the prevailing injustice inflicted upon Your people! While many in ‘power’ who have sworn to take the position of being color-blind, their voices remain mute when our black and brown brothers and sisters, even children are killed and incarcerated nothing is done to their executioners or captors! However, when wealthy, prominent, elite Caucasians die, the networks and social media inundate the airways with 24-Hour Breaking News reports, including live stream partisan speeches starting from The Executive Office to the floor of Congress and Senate thru The institutionally-racially-biased Supreme Court, which hold the top-three trending headlines of the ‘atrocious brutal massacre’ throughout the nation!

Heavenly Father, You have instructed us ,to pray for the leaders of our nation, corporate, judicial, education, financial institutions and our churches!  Touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in dreams and night visions, warn 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! Their hearts are yet in Your Hands, therefore we believe that 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! Jesus, Cover us in Your BLOOD as we walk through the valleys of the shadow of death! We know that because of this crooked and perverted nation, the safest place yet remains in THE WILL OF GOD! Father, heal our land!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher, clergical auxiliary officers,musicians/choir/praise team members! 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 by Your Mighty Hand, all those who are crying out, seeking Your Face at the very moment! Give us to know that because we belong to You, You shall 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 have 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 Your appointed time, every knee must bow and every tongue confess that You are Lord!

Grace your children with hope-filled trust that Your Providential Presence and Power is able to turn everything around to work in our favor and to bring about exuberant testimonies and praises of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory!

Father, we know that no man can be saved except You draw them, therefore we pray Holy Spirit, quicken the stony hearts of the wicked and evil every where with a Spirit of Godly-Repentance that releases them to come bowing before You, humbled by Your Lovingkindness, submitting their lives in obedience to Your call and receiving Your Mercy and Grace to Save. We pray now that You are leading and guiding them to the local church, planting them in Your Vineyard, where they shall be taught and transformed by Your Word of Life to take their rightful position in The Kingdom of Heaven, determined to live a holy, separated life and advancing Your Kingdom in the earth!

Abba Father, we’re trusting You to put a “new commitment YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider and 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! In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

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. 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.

As we plead the Blood of Jesus, we declare and decree 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!

Father, we pray for those who are distraught by grief and fear, the elderly, the widows, the downcast, those who have born the heat of the day,  who pushed and prayed us through and now appear to be forgotten by family/church members and tucked away in hospitals and nursing homes! Father, let them know that You have not forgotten their labor of love! Reward their faithful commitment with sweet peace!

Lord, we lift up every believer yet holding onto Your Hand by faith today, believing You are releasing Divine power, Supernatural strength and health, provision, prosperity and protection. We’re trusting that You shall preserve them thru the tests that they must go thru and keeping them fully persuaded 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!

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! We know You are not just able, but willing to do anything that we ask, in accordance to Your Word! As we walk through this day, we shall continue giving Your Name all the Praise!

Father, we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of addiction, perversion, ungodly soul tie, depression, unforgiveness, abandonment, rejection, broken marriages, divorce, anxiety and fear is  broken and defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power, Sound-mindness, Purpose and Peace is being released into the lives of Your Beloved now and forever, in Jesus Name!
Sweet Holy Spirit,  in closing, we offer up this prayer, waiting 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 WITH THANKSGIVING!

Father, WE TRUST, KNOW AND 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 THEM JUS AS MUCH AS HE LOVES EVERYBODY!

SELAH!

LOST TREASURES!

LOST TREASURES

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. Romans 8:36-38

 

Didjahear the story about the two sistas who were at their Father’s repast? Finally, as they hovered together on Big-Mama’s favorite antique white loveseat, still covered in the plastic, they felt comfortable enough to say out loud what errrbody had been thinking secretly. without the appearance of disrespect or ingratitude! The Elder Sista leaning over to the younger Sista whispered, “WONDER HOW MUCH DID HE LEAVE?”

Mother Watermelon, who was about to offer them a piece of sweet potato pie, smiled and said, ‘ALL OF IT, HE LEFT ALL OF IT!”

While some would prefer to dismiss the inevitable potency of its reality, there’s absolutely no escaping it. The most precious commodity in the earth is not silver, gold, oil or even real estateBUT TIME!

This contemporized Millennium Sociology teaches “Time is Money”; but I beg to differ!

Time is much more valuable than mere mammon! Granted, you’d probably never notice the slightest hint of this, given the media’s promotion of the extravagant lifestyles of the rich and famous. Nevertheless, I think it not robbery to propose that if you’d ask any one of this world’s wealthiest man or woman, in retrospect, glancing back over their life’s achievements, “How much would you be willing to barter for one solitary moment of unrefined, unrequited love; one night of tranquil serene rest unhindered by foreboding betrayal; one day of normality without drug induced sense of well-being? Might I venture to declaim, the response would be an overwhelming ardent acclamation of—’ALL…I’D GIVE UP ALL!’?

Hence, that’s the crucible of every one of our lives! What makes life meaningful, and more importantly. what in this life that’s truly worth dying for? “If in this life only we have hope, we are of all men most miserable.” 1 Corinthians 15:19.

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal Matthew 6:19-20

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. John 10:10 NLT

Don’t waste ur entire life on the pleasures of  this world, or upon satisfying your fleshy lusts! When you make this life ALL ABOUT U, U BASICALLY NEUTRALIZE GOD! Remember, only what U do 4 Christ shall last! Afterall, CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YA! #ijs!!!

WORTHY!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

Sing unto the Lord, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation. Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations. For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the people are idols: but the Lord made the heavens. Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place. 1 Chronicles 16:23-27

 

Today’s scripture text takes place when King David and the Levitical Priests were finally bringing The Ark of the Covenant home to Jerusalem, after their first attempt turned drastically wrong, releasing the burning Anger of God resulting in the death of the King’s servant, Uzzah, who unsuspectingly illegally handled The Ark. (Ref. 2 Samuel 6:6-11)

But GOD! In his infinite Mercy and Grace, allows David a second chance to restore The Presence of God to its rightful place, in the center of the City of David. This time, David sought instructions of The Lord rather than presuming that he already knew the Will of God. Oh Hallelujahhhhh!!!!

How many times have we run ahead of God, only to regrettably discover that our decisions landed us smack-dab-in-the middle of a dead-end situation? Oh, the folly of man’s failure to remember The Wonders of God’s Sovereignty is far too great to be limited by our past experiences or the inadequacy of human intellectual presupposition. Nevertheless,  our Condescending Savior’s Grace towards us is revealed time and time again as His Favor allows us the opportunity to repent and turn back to Him that He might Shepherd and direct us in the appropriate Ways we should go. Have I gotta a bonifide witness to tell da truth and shame da devil?

It’s no wonder David, overwhelmed with ecstasy, joy and delight, rejoiced, danced, singing a new song celebrated before the Lord without reserve, uninhibited by person, title, position, nor shame. Israel’s King recognized fully well, that GOD alone, having forgiven his rebellious presumptions sin, restoring him back into proper right-standing with The King of Kings was indeed worthy of unrelenting worship, praise, honor and glory!

When was the last time you abandoned your expectations, mistakes, predicaments and criticisms, and lost yourself to inflamed worship in The Shechinah Glory for another second chance?

” FOR THERE IS NONE ELSE IS LIKE YOU LORD! NONE ELSE TO COMPARE WITH YOUR MAJESTIC GLORY! FOR THIS CAUSE, WE BLESS AND MAGNIFY YOUR NAME, KING JESUS… TODAY AND FOREVER MORE! FOR YOU ALONE ARE WORTHY!”

Didjaheardat? WELL…LET IT GO! MY HALLELUJAH BELONGS 2 U! ALL OF THE GLORRRAAAA BELONG 2 U! U DESERVE IT….4 U ALONE R WORTHY!

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

 

One of the most tragic phenomenon befalling humanity is leaving here without ever knowing and becoming the fearfully, wonder-filled, exceptionally-crafted Masterpiece our Creator intended before you were formed in your Mother’s womb. (Ref. Jeremiah 1:5)

Could that be why some say that the richest piece of real estate in any city is the cemetery? Don’t get melancholic on me! In fact my objective is quite the opposite; to spawn enticing hope-filled adventurous tomorrows!

We live in a society where conformity is the paramount attribute of success. If you want to be in you’ve got to fit the mold, otherwise you’re considered not one of us but part of the others. Unfortunately that leaves a whole lot of us out of the clique, huh?

But here’s where I stand on such matters; who gave you the authority to authenticate what God has made in the first place? Only the creator of a thing has the right to determine its true value and potential! Hence, too many of us walk around, ignorant of self-identity, convicted and/or condemned to a lifetime of regret-filled apologizing to others for who I AM!

That is until we come into the personal saving knowledge of Christ Jesus and get a revelation of who and Whose you are. This opens us gargantuan possibilities and prospective that eyes have not seen neither have ears heard of. Why waste time being a copy of anybody or everybody else when God has distinguished you from every other individual born in the earth. Check your fingerprints?

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16

Locked up in you is the answer to someone’s question. You are designed to be the miracle that person’s waiting on. You are the gift of hope to some despondent soul. You are the treasure that one somebody’s been seeking for and was about to give up on, disgusted by a history of repetitious seconds and hand-me-downs!

Oh what liberating truth in realizing that despite of what some folk may think or even said about you, in Christ, you have been empowered to stand-sure-footed in His Grace and profoundly proclaim, “I shall not allow anybody to deny me the right to be, become, have and do everything God ordained me 2 BE! I CHOOSE LIFE!”

Remember, Absolutely Nobody, BUT GOD can make you who you are!  DON’T DIE BEFORE LIVING! #GO4IT!

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9

 

Granted, given the peer pressure of this 21st Century society that we live in, it ain’t no easy task, howeverrr, sometimes, we just gotta learn how to appreciate ourselves for the fearfully, wondrously and gloriously made creations of God that we are! (Ref. Psalm 139:14) #ijs!!!

 For some of us, by the time you get to Jesus, you’ve already suffered years of psychological damage, mis-use and abuse. As the psalmist said, we’ve been ‘ buked and scorned, lied on, cheated, talked about sure as we’re born; slammed and crushed by life that you’ve subconsciously de-valued yourselves so much so that when you hear some preacher say ‘God loves you’, your initial response is an overwhelmingly cynical—REALLY? But the Good News is that God is not intimidated by  your fragile-self-incriminating state. He specializes in restoring broken things!

As you continue to feed on The Word of God, through the enabling Power of The Holy Spirit, your eyes are opened to Truth and astonishingly, you will begin to see yourself through the “blood stained” Savior’s eyes. As God’s relentless Loving-kindness and Amazing Grace begins to penetrate the callousness of your heart, you get a revelation of the Magnificent Compassion that your Heavenly Father has toward you. Honestly, It’s almost unbelievable!

Come to think of it, no one BUT The Creator can determine the true worth of His creation! Remember, God Himself  deliberately and intentionally chose you in Christ Jesus before the foundation of the world! Once you have accepted God’s Love, there’s no need to crave validation from anybody else. REALLY! 

NOW AIN’T THAT AWEMAAZING? 

ITZ DA TRUTH!  BELOVED, ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT REGARDLESS OF WHAT ‘THEY’ SAY,  IN GOD’S EYES YOU’RE INDELIBLY PRICELESS! DON’T SELL YOURSELF CHEAP!
