Lord I Thank you thank you thank you for another day. Oooh Lord thank you that you saw it not robbery to provide us with life on this day. We are so excited about what you have in store for us on this day Lord. We know that there is greatness waiting right around the corner for us and we thank you for it. Lord we expect on this day for you to do the unexpected. We anticipate your glory to come down on this day Lord and we will be ready to receive it. Forgive us of our sins Lord as we confess them.
Thank you that you are a God that does restore. Thank you for being the God of healing. Thank you that you’re a God who erases our past and makes us brand new again. Today we ask for you to temper our tongues Lord allow us to speak only when it is a reflection of you God. We know that death and life lies in the power of the tongue so on this day in this hour we speak life to every dead thing in ours; to every dormant thing in our life, to every stagnant situation that we have in our lives. WE SPEAK LIFE! We tell the enemy to move so that we can walk in the purpose outlined. Give us peace in our hearts and in our minds. Lord allow us to hang on to peace as if it was our only lifeline. Lord today we choose to be a reflection of you. Satan you have no power here. Do your worst plan, your worst destruction possible and watch God turn what you meant for evil into good. We love you Lord and we count it all joy. You say your joy is our strength so we pull on your joyfullness standing and walking in it. In Jesus Name we pray Amen
Do you ever expect people to move at the same pace you do? I know I do. It even frustrates me when people for what ever reason must go through certain circumstances in order to gain a full understanding. Only after I’ve given advice that wasn’t taken head. But then I sit and ask myself is this biblical? Although I am given advice based on the lessons I’ve learned for some as well as for myself it took the situations to produce a certain level of one humility and two maturity. It took lessons lived through in order to gain a full knowledge of what God was in fact doing. Sure the I told you so’s rang in my ear but what it boiled down to was the new person I was becoming.
Then why is it so hard to allow people the room they need to grow and become the new person that God has created them to be? I wonder what it would be like if we lived in a world where we spreaded prayer verses the latest tea; gossip, 411. I mean think about it, what would really happen if we got on our knees and took their issues before the Lord in hopes that God would do the internal work? I believe that sometimes it’s hard for people to hear past their own carnality and sometimes it’s hard for people to give opinions past their own carnality which sometimes overshadows the truth bebig conveyed. However what God Says in his word in James 5:16 is for us to confess our sins to one another and pray for one another. Let’s try that the next time we’re giving advice. Let’s pray first and allow God to speak……Are you listening?
I posted this to facebook figured I share here as well.
About ten years ago this professor asked his class what was our life verse. It really got me thinking with all the hundreds of thousands of verses and how do I just pick one?
After careful thought and much prayer Jeremiah 29:11 resonated in my spirit more than any other. Why? Because this verse gave hope. This verse let me know that no matter what no matter where I’m at God knows the plans he has for my future. Not just any old plans; plans that are going to prosper me to a future and ending that I can hope for ending that I can expect an ending that he can say job well done and I can be content and pleased in knowing that I was used by him to fullfill.
So I asked you today what is your life verse? What is that one verse that you go to to get you through each day? What is that verse that you remind yourself of to keep you on the right path? I would love to hear from you. Comment your life verse below. God bless 🙏
Father God thank you once again for life. Thank you for waking us up this morning. Lord we don’t take it for granted the precious gift of life because somewhere someone was not afforded it. God I pray right now on this day in the name of Jesus that you forgive us of our sins Lord forgive us of our shortcomings. God forgive us of the areas where we truly went the wrong way when right was staring us in the face. Lord we pray and asking in the name of Jesus that you renew a right Spirit within us, cleanse us of unrighteousness God. We’re tired of taking two steps forward only to take one step back. We’re tired of going around the same Mountain hoping to get to the top.
God we know that we can never live a perfect life; a sinless life. Lord but each day as we choose to dive further in your word as we choose to uncover more and more of your treasures that lie within we will sin less. So we ask right now in the name of Jesus for you to have your way in our lives. We love you and we know that you’re faithful. We come against every single assignment of the enemy right now in the name of Jesus. Devil who are you? What’s the worst that you can do that God hasn’t already overcome? Even your worst is still under God’s hands. In those tough times we promise that we won’t lose the faith God and if we do Lord give us a sign or wonder to remind us that we can go on, we can hang on and we can run to see what the end is going to be. We thank you and we count it already done in Jesus mighty name we pray.
Lord God You are amazingly awesome. There is no one like you. Truly unique originally your own. You shed light in even the darkest of situations. I love you more and more each day and to think it’s only a mere fraction of your love for me. Help our eyes to be receptive to your love. Help are ears to be sensitive to your voice. We want to hear from you on this day God. We know that moving if even to the right or left without the unction of the Holy Ghost can lead us down our own path vs the one you ordained. Lord we confess our sins right now and ask for your forgiveness and it is so in Jesus Name Amen.
Lord you are sooo good. In a world filled with so much bad you are good constant and in you there is peace. Thank you for your gift of salvation. Apart from it what do we have but this world. I pray over our minds on this day. Guard our ear gates and eye gates Lord. Anything that is not like you on this day let us not be receptive to it but rather repellent killing and blocking any thought contrary to you. We come against every single assignment of the enemy right now in the name of Jesus. Devil you have no power here. Everything you do has already been defeated! Continue to give us a spirit of humility Lord God and where you find we aren’t humble show us the way. We know we aren’t perfect and that’s not what you expect. But what we are is willing and ready openly confessing our sins, asking and accepting you forgiveness and walking in our newness. Thank you for being our Father. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Father God thank you for this day. Thank you for life and breath. The gift of life is not something we take for granted. Lord we confess our sins to you right now and we know your faithful and just to forgive us. God we ask for your protection and covering over our hearts and minds. Today we seek your face even more than yesterday. Guide us as we go deeper in your word on this day; as we draw closer to you. We love you and its in Jesus Name we pray.
I always wondered what would have happned had Jesus not died on the cross. More importantly I contemplate what life would have been like if we had to be crucified literally for our own sins. NO WAY right?
Sometimes it seems we walk around in a comatose state knowing who was crucified but never fully identifying with the act done on the cross because “well it just aint me”. We somehow forget this selfless act was done for us and not by us and we don’t always hold it in the same regard. We think we somehow get a self entitled pass for His merciful gift; crucifixion.
How would you feel if your flesh was ripped,mangled, and beaten to a pulp only to be forgotten about? He was perfect we aren’t. True better Jesus than you because alot of us would have never gone to the cross. With that being said never ever forget what Jesus did for us. Don’t become so complacent in life that you take advantage of the gift given by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I love that God is a God of action. He isn’t big on the whole talk the talk buy can’t back it up. But even more joyeous than that is his attributes, his very character that relefct such fruit. Fruit that leaves no room to question. Isaiah 32:17 says that the fruit of righteousness will be peace ; it’s effects will be quietness and confidence forever.
There it is right there: the fruit will be peace, confidence quietness forever. Not just now but forever! He doesn’t leave us in a frenzy contemplating whether or not we are righteous. Now Granted we have our inheritence no different than an heir to a thrown but even greater than that is the responsibility of displaying the same fruit that will ensure our very peace.
God loves us so much and he desires to show us just how much he knows us. Oh what peace we find we can stand, walk and be bold in. Always consistenly growing in Christ.
Lets allow God’s righteuosness OUR righteuosness to be more than mere inheritance but evident in our lives on this day In Jesus mighty name Amen.
It never occurred to me that my blessing would come in the form of a lesson. A lot of the times when I heard your blessing was on the way I automatically assumed it was tangible; something that I could touch. It never dawned on me until of course after the fact that my blessing in this season would be a lesson that God needed me to learn.
We’ve all heard insanity is doing the same thing expecting a different result and honestly, this past year has felt like I was hitting my head against a stone wall in hopes that it would crumble right before my eyes. Too bad all I received was a splitting headache and bruises to match.
My prayers were very surface. Lord, what did I do? Why me? And to be honest I didn’t get the answers that I hoped I find. The idea that God was looking at me waiting for me to ask the correct questions infuriated me. My frustration seem to boil over shifting my prayers to Lord what are you trying to teach me?
It wasn’t about some horrible act that occurred to me or my feelings of ill treatment but rather the growth that God wanted me to gain through this season of hardships. I found out that my blessing was my liberation; my ability to see the errors of my own ways. I learned that God needed to isolate me in order destroy once and for all the carnality that overshadowed the calling. He needed me to be reminded of the very first moment I encountered Him and uncovered my purpose.
