When My Words Fail

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I want so badly to help others to see that You have better for them. Lord, I don’t want to do anything of my own strength; therefore, I need Your power to work in my life. Guide me. Give me what to say and when to say it. Lord, it is my prayer that every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God is destroyed right now in the name of Jesus. Capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ. The only way is through Jesus Christ. Let my words speak about what Christ did on the Cross for us ALL and let Your promises draw them near. Lord, once they hear about Jesus and learn the truth that comes from him, teach them […]

I’m a Winner

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, despite all that comes my way by the hand of the enemy to try to override what has already been done through Jesus Christ, overwhelming victory is mine through Christ, who loved me. I am able to win life’s battles because the price has already been paid on the cross. Now, all I have to do is walk in the Victory that is already mine. Thank You Lord, because through Your great plan for me, I’m a winner. My soul has been redeemed and eternal life already belongs to me. As I strive to draw closer to You each day, continue to pour out wisdom through Your Word. Open up my understanding. Give fresh revelation each day, so that I may apply Your Word and walk Victoriously, allowing others to see the great and mighty God that I serve […]

Trading Our Pain for God’s Gain

In your deepest, darkest place of pain, God can and will use it for His gain, then He’ll turn your pain into Overwhelming Victory. Through your lowest valley, God’s saving hand of mercy is still moving all around you. As He did with the life of Paul, let Him use your life for good. When our words are backed by the power of Jesus Christ, demons have to flee. Nothing that comes against us can stand up to this great name. But also, our lives must be aligned with the will and Word of God. We cannot be living any kind of way and expect the power of God to be working in and through our lives. Paul was doing what he was called to do. He was on a mission to strengthen others in the gospel of Jesus Christ […]

A Heart for God

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, as my heart is sustained by You, let my heart be only for the things of God. Lord, I want all that I do to delight in You. Every thought, every action is not always Christ-like, so I pray that You reconcile my missteps and align them to Your desire for me. Let the things that settle within my heart be pleasing to You. Though my heart has been broken on many occasions, because of human error and frailty and others seemingly not knowing the best way to treat me, You work through Your healing virtue to mend the shattered pieces and keep my heart pumping, anticipating the goodness that You have prepared for me. When my expectations of others have fallen short, You have shielded my heart from exploding beyond recognition […]

Even When…God Lead the Way

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I am thankful for another day. I will shout with joy to You Lord. I will worship You Lord with gladness. I come before You, Lord, singing with joy. I acknowledge that You are God. You made me and I am Yours. I am a part of Your people, the sheep of Your pasture. Lord, even when there were many times that I failed to remember Your great faithfulness towards me, You have always led the way. I will persist in following You, and this day and forever more, I will consider the ways that You have made and will be grateful for the things that You have done. Every step I take will be in thankfulness to the God of my Salvation because of Your patience and guidance […]

I Am Because God Is

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, everything that I am is because of You. Because of who You are I give You glory. Because of who You are I give You praise. You are my mighty King. You are my Deliverer, my Provider, my Way Maker, and my Shelter in times of storm. Because I have believed You and accepted You, You have given me the right to become a child of God. I am Your child. Thank You for a place to call home. I am overwhelmed with joy in You, Lord my God! For You have dressed me with the clothing of salvation and draped me in a robe of righteousness. I am like a bridegroom dressed for his wedding or a bride with her jewels. I am clothed with the righteousness of Jesus. I am because He is […]

Stop with All the Questions

Let God run things because He knows what is best. I must, stop with all the questions that do not allow God to be God. Instead, I will expect great things and look for God in everything! When we don’t quite understand His ways, we have an opportunity to walk by faith and not by sight. Keep walking! God is doing some miraculous things. In the midst of that will be what appears to be minor and sometimes major setbacks, but don’t lose focus of the mighty hand of God. God can and will change any circumstance if we will hold out and see what the end will be. At our moment of wanting to throw in the towel, we must persevere beyond our feelings, even beyond our own thought processing […]

Wisdom, The Missing Piece

How do you typically respond when someone offers you words of wisdom and Godly advice for the situations that you deal with on a daily basis? Are you full of pride? Do you reject this advice? Are you not receptive to help? Does conflict or disagreement arise while you are, perhaps, fighting to be right? Proverbs 13:10 (NIV) says, “Where there is strife, there is pride, but wisdom is found in those who take advice.” How often and sad it is when people, when I, try to do everything on my own without proper resources to handle the situation. The main reason: WISDOM. This often makes situations worse, and the time spent cleaning up the mess, just to get back to square one, is so exhausting and unnecessary […]

That Great Name

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Honor the Lord, you heavenly beings; honor the Lord for his glory and strength. Honor the Lord for the glory of his name. Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness. O Lord, my Lord, Your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—the moon and the stars you set in place—what are mere mortals that You should think about them, human beings that You should care for them? Yet, You care so much for me. You made me only a little lower than Yourself and crowned me with glory and honor. You gave me charge of everything You made, putting all things under my authority—You did this all for me by Your Great Name. […]

Greater Purpose – Never Forgotten

Even when we go through a season of barrenness, where we are not fruitful and nothing seems to be multiplying in our life, God will remember us. We pick up today looking a little closer at the greater purpose that God had in the lives of these individuals. So, the cycle of conceiving and birthing begins in the lives of Jacob’s wives, Leah and Rachel. I guess we could consider them to be rival sisters at this point, competing for the love of their husband. Rachel has the love, but nothing else to show for it. Leah is loveless, but providing Jacob with the “many” that will be part of his promised nation through the lineage of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob […]

The Way of Life

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I know You are always with me. I will not be shaken, for You are right beside me. No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice. My body rests in safety. You are my comforter and my guide. When the world becomes confusing and sometimes crushing, You are my Way of Life. For Your Word says that You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of Your presence and the pleasures of living with You forever. I have no reason to fear. I am not out here all alone because You are the Way of Life. As long as I follow You, I am always heading in the right direction […]

When We Are Hurting

When our loving God looks upon us and see’s our heart, He enables us to “conceive” and birth’s through us what He has for us to do. There may be times in our lives where we are overlooked for a number of different reasons. We are left feeling like we are not good enough; not worthy of even the blessings that God desires to bring into our lives. We sometimes miss God-given, divine opportunities because we believe we are not enough. God does not want us to feel this way. We are chosen by Him and He loves us as He created us to be. We must align our lives with His image and use that as our guide to become more like Him […]

You Will Not Drown

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, thank You for Your Word. For in it I am made aware that those who accept Your commandments and obey them are the ones who love You. And because I love You, my Father will love me. And You will love me and reveal Yourself to me and to everyone who loves You. Lord, I love You because You first loved me. You are my example of what love really is and how to reciprocate that love to others. You are so rich in kindness and grace that You purchased my freedom with the blood of Your Son and forgave my sins. There is no greater love than this […]

Don’t Miss the Lesson

Order is a must. Let God order your day. He knows what is best. Don’t be so focused on receiving the Blessing that you miss the lesson in the process. When the storms come, instead of trying to formulate our own plan and course of action to shield ourselves, we must stay focused and rely on the proven path that God has us own. Tuesday was a different kind of morning for me. As I approached my place of employment, the rain began to pour down. Of course, we needed it, as the flowers have been all withered and the grass has become a lovely shade of brown. LOL Nature has been in need of a good soaking from its Master […]
