Father , thank you for always having our best interest at heart. Forgive us for the times we leaned on our own understanding instead of trusting your perfect plan. Help us to surrender to your way. Teach us daily how to do life in step with Holy Spirit. Empower us daily to grow in grace. Thank you, Papa, for being a good good Father. Thank you for giving us the courage to lay down the old way to receive the new. Help us press past the resistance from our flesh and submit totally to you so we can go the distance with you, trusting and obeying you even when it’s difficult. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Full armor of God
I encourage you all to take a look at this! By FAITH, ask God to cover you with each other these weapons of protection!
Your mind, spirit, soul, emotions, heart are at stake! The devil doesn’t play fair. He wants it all. He comes to kill, steal and destroy.
Stay in the fight, God has you covered. 💪🏼
Power in Prayer
First off, Merry Christmas to you all.
I woke up and started praying. How often do we wake up and check social media or text messages. I got up and started praying for people around the world and for people that don’t have food, clothing, shelter.
Prayer is necessary in this time. We are living in the last days and PRAYER is our weapon. Prayer really changes things.
I love to listen to Dr. Charles Stanley and he talks about how we are to get on our knees- often times on our face and pray. That shows God that we are surendering everything in prayer.
We have to shut all the distractions out, cut the noise out, turn off the tv, put down the phones and pray. Only YOU know what YOU are going through. We are approaching the end of the year and I don’t know about you but I’m expecting God to do some miracles in these last few days of the year. 6 days for God to do something miraculous and amazing in our lives if we believe and have FAITH.
God created the world in 6 days, we have 6 days left in this year and I’m expecting Him to answer just one of my prayers but He likes to do above and beyond so I’m already giving Him thanks for that answered prayer! Praise God!!!! I love you Lord!!! Thank you for JESUS!!!!! (when praises go up, blessings come down!)
Lord help us to put any expectations down that aren’t for us, and let us be content with where we are right now. Let us draw close to you in this time. You fill every void and give us JOY unspeakable.
I love and adore you Jesus.
Amen. God bless you all.
When God Says No
Thinking to myself today as I was on a walk this morning… God knows every hair on our heads. He knows our thoughts and most importantly; He knows our hearts. I asked myself, If God knows our hearts, then He knows our hearts desires.
Psalms 37:4-5 says “Delights yourself in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; Trust also in him; And he shall bring it to pass.”
In this scripture, knowing that God will give us the desires of our hearts really put me at ease this morning as I thought about things arising that I’ve been in prayer about.
If we delight ourselves in the Lord, aka get happy, get joyful, seek him, study His word, we will begin to have the desires that He would have for us. We wouldn’t desire things of the flesh and the world. We wouldn’t desire things that unknowingly would put us in hurt, harm or danger.
As I continued my walk I said this to God “if you say NO, that’s because YOU KNOW.” It was so clear after that. If I’m asking God for something, and He denies it or tells me NO, that means He knows that what I’m asking for isn’t something that He would want to give me or let me have. God knows the depths of our hearts, emotions and desires.
Moving forward, I’m not going to trip when God says no, or when He shuts a door, or when there is rejection. Man’s rejection could very well be Gods protection.
I trust God, because God knows what’s best for ME.
Make this personal to yourself, God knows what He is doing. ❤
Have a blessed weekend, I love you all!
I was laying in bed the other morning and I began to pray and just thank God for the RIGHT NOW. We get so ahead of God and start praying for the future and all the things we need and how we need it and when we need it… and my prayer was just – “thank you Lord for RIGHT now… “
Because in this RIGHT NOW moment, I’m alive, I’m healthy, I got what I need, I’m breathing, my mind is right , in this RIGHT NOW moment I feel you because your love and mercy has kept me.
Praise God for your right now. ❤️
Give it over to God… in prayer.
Today if you are going through a tough time, remember who can help you in the midst of any storm.
God often times will allow trials and tribulations to come your way in order to draw you closer to Him. Life can get really busy and we can unintentionally put God, our FIRST love on the back burner.
God then allows conflict, tragedy, storms, offense, heartbreak, sickness to come upon us to get our attention, slow us down, or simply just draw us closer to Him.
He’s the only person from experience that I know that has gotten me out of the muck and mire. He’s the only person that I know who has healed my body. He’s the only person I know that can restore a broken place. He’s the only person I know who can heal a marriage. He’s the only person I know who can be a friend when all friends leave. He’s the only person I know who can show you favor when all odds are against you.
God can and God will! Put that in your spirit today and don’t let the enemy or even yourself make you think other wise.
God said He is for you and not against you.
He is close to the broken-hearted.
He will come through for you. I can’t even count on hands and feet how many times God has came through for me when I couldn’t see a way out.
He’s no respecter of persons. So that means, if He did it for me- He can and will do it for YOU.
Give it to God, put it in His hands, the ONE and only who can turn any situation around for YOUR GOOD. ❤️🙏🏼
With much love,
In love …
Prayer: Father, I love what you are doing in our hearts and minds. I love how you accept us as we are, but you love and care too much to let us stay as we are. We want to grow. We want to do things your way. We want to live free to enjoy life as you have it. Help us, Father, to keep a clean heart, and an empty sink. Help us either let it go or address it in love. Forgive us for holding on to things. We receive your love, your forgiveness, and your help. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
(Read Matthew 5:8; 1 Peter 4:7-8; Psalms 51:10)
God hears your cry
Let God turn this situation around for YOUR good. Stop worrying about it and start thanking God about it!
There is blessings in your praise!
There is power in your praise!
There is deliverance in your praise!
Love you ❤️
There is NOTHING too hard for God
Stand on that promise today. 🙏❤️
Peace in the midst of the storm
God will allow things to happen in our lives to stretch us, prune us and build character in us.
We must make sure we keep our eyes and hearts towards Him & trust the process of His divine time tables.
We can’t get ahead of God. Trust that He is working behind the scenes on YOUR behalf to work everything out for your good. (Romans 8:28).
Fasting & prayer is essential always but in the hour it’s NECESSARY. It’s going to quiet your flesh and keep you grounded and immovable in the word of the Lord.
Keep seeking God, keep rejoicing & God is going to see you through this. ❤️🙏💕
