Disconnected? Make Some Adjustments and Get Your Focus Back

Have you ever been in a room full of people, excitement happening all around you, laughter ensuing, joy appearing to be on everyone’s face, but yet, you feel so disconnected, possibly even lost? When this happens in my life, and it occasionally does, recognizing these unwanted guests of emotions, which show up uninvited, allows room for God’s healing to take place in those areas within my life. It allows for honest assessment of the adjustments that may still need to take place, so that I may continuously walk in the Victory that is already mine through Christ Jesus. How do I handle this? I separate myself for a bit, make some adjustments, and get my focus back […]

Ponder This

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I have come to realize that obedience is the gateway to my Overwhelming Victory. As I obey You, do Your will, and follow the steps of growth in You, even when the course of my day may not always go as planned, You are seeing about me. Everything that comes to hinder my progress in You must answer to the God of my Salvation. Even when my own thoughts try to turn against me, I can pray to You, O Lord, that every proud obstacle that keeps me from knowing You, O God, is destroyed, in Jesus’ name. For my rebellious thoughts can be captured and they can be taught to obey Christ. How amazing are Your deeds! […]

Preparation

If everything in our lives is always on the up and wonderful and lovely, at what point would we need God’s comfort? At what point would we be able to be used by God to comfort others? Preparation is defined as the action or process of making something ready for use or service or of getting ready for some occasion, test, or duty. As a whole, we don’t mind preparation, as long as we have our list to follow and agree with and/or have a clear mental grasp of all of the steps that are needed to prepare. However, I am learning that spiritually speaking, we may not always have all of the information up front or a clear path in which we will know what lies at every bullet point on a list. We must first recognize that God is taking us through a state of preparation […]

Just Around the Corner

Peeking my head, just so, around the corner of my wilderness view, I see a hint of “SON” just over the horizon. I feel the power of God manifesting over my life, as I continue taking the necessary steps to my Overwhelming Victory. On this journey toward my promised land, I have some idea about how I believe God wants me to proceed and I am anticipating the move of His victorious hand over my life. Nevertheless, I know that His ways are not my ways and God has no limits. I need to seek Him for HIS direction and the ordering of my steps. I cannot rely on any other source to be my guide, as I continue to venture forward […]

God, Use Me

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, as you work in me, giving me the desire and the power to do what pleases you, provide me with the renewed strength that I need to wait on you. God, I want to cooperate with Your well-constructed and thought out plan for my life. As Elohim, God, Mighty Creator, You have arranged all that I need to get through this life, and in Your perfect sovereign will and kairos moments, El Shaddai, God Almighty, You allow these resources to flow in and out of my life […]

God, I Trust You

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I am choosing this day to trust you. The promises in Your Word are true. God Your Word says in Isaiah 55:11, “So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” […]
