Perseverance - #Friday

Image
Nehemiah 6: 15-16 ESV “So the wall was finished on the twenty-fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty-two days. And when all our enemies heard of it, all the nations around us were afraid and fell greatly in their own esteem, for they perceived that this work had been accomplished with the help of our God.”
The minute you understand your purpose you will not allow people to pressure you. You will stand your man in the company. I learned the harder people push you the harder you need to push back. Never once have I backed down, my purpose was clear I wanted to be a successful person.
I realized that people will pressure you to the extent that you become fearful when in fact the pressure is a ploy to get rid of you. The reasons are simple they cannot get on with you and would love you to leave.
In the old days when I felt the pressure of people manipulating and pressurizing me, I would break down in the bathroom and pray, crying and praying calling out to the LORD my God.
These people hated …

Flattery will get you nowhere.

Proverbs 27: 21
“As silver is tried in the fining-pot and gold in the furnace; so a man is tried by the mouth of him that praiseth.  The heart of the wicked seeketh after evils, but the righteous heart seeketh after knowledge.”
How do you react to people who try and flatter you? I don’t understand why people try and flatter me. If someone tries to flatter me the first thing that comes to mind “What do you want?”
I don’t trust people who try and flatter me because I believe they have a hidden agenda and want something in return. I also feel they cannot be trusted. They always come with sweet talk but in the background, I have heard how they discuss me.
Prayer
Lord the question is do we enjoy flattery or do we brush it off and carry on with our lives. Do we think about the great words spoken over us and think we are all this and more when in fact we are still being pruned each day. Lord helps us to discern right from wrong and not be taken into false pretences. In the name of Jesus Christ of…

What You Know About God Working It “For Your Good” And What You Don’t Know About God Working It “For Your Good.”

Deuteronomy 29: 29 AMP “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things which are revealed and disclosed belong to us and to our children forever, so that we may do all of the words of this law.”
When your life is plain sailing and things are great you don’t even consider “for your good.” But let things take a turn and your life comes unstuck, that’s when you wonder why “for your good?” How can difficult times be good for you?
In those days when I was struggling and suffering with difficulties I was reminded “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.” It’s difficult to do that when you are faced with adversaries. People that you trusted and thought had your back were out to get you. When you can’t see the outcome and you are plagued by fear it’s hard to see “we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8: 28
Now looking back those where the days I grew s…

“For we also are His children.”

Image
Acts 17: 28 AMP “For in Him we live and exist [that is, in Him we actually have our being], as even some of your own poets have said, “For we also are His children.””
I was thinking about this and it struck me that we live in a society that “loves” everything. I ask myself the question do we truly Love the Lord our God? Or do we look for love in all the wrong places?
Do you love your neighbor? Do you love your family? Do you Love God?
Sometimes I don’t love my neighbour or my family, they make me mad and I don’t want to even look their way. Do I love God? I believe that I love God. I have committed my life to the Lord Jesus and I accepted the Lord into my life.
And thinking about this statement “For we also are His children” brightens my face and makes me super happy. My life is in God’s hand and I know that God first loved me so I can love Him back.
Prayer
Lord I love You, I love You, I do. Today thank You that I can brag about my love for You. You lift me up, You called me by my name, I be…

Lord God, I am asking You for Your Supernatural Favour today!

2 Corinthians 5: 21 AMP “He made Christ who knew no sin to [judicially] be sin on our behalf so that in Him we would become the righteousness of God [that is, we would be made acceptable to Him and placed in a right relationship with Him by His gracious lovingkindness].”
It is my heart’s desire Lord, Abba Father that You O LORD, will bless my life and that You will surround me with Your shield of favour. I realize and understand that I am not worthy of any of Your grace or favour but I do come before You as the Righteousness of God in Christ.
Lord, I realize that when You favour me I will also enjoy the favour of the people around me. I am calling out to You today, please Lord encircle me with Your shield of favour.
Prayer
I believe Lord God, that You do have a plan for my life. As I sit in my office today I want to cry out to You in humbleness asking that You will encircle me with Your favour that this will cover my life today and the rest of my life. I love and adore You Lord and thank…

Praying for Israel

Image
1 Samuel 12: 22 AMP
“The LORD will not abandon His people for His great name’s sake, because the LORD has been pleased to make you a people for Himself.”
Today in humility I stand before the LORD my God and I pray for His people, the Jews and Israel. I want to ask that we will pray for their Prime Minister, their Mayor also including all in military service. I want to ask that you will come with me in agreement that they will rise up government leaders in Israel (and worldwide) who will not seek to “divide the land,” and who would recognize the unique significance of Jerusalem in God’s end-time purposes.
Prayer
Abba Father, humbly I stand before You today and I want to pray for Israel, the Prime Minister, the Mayor of Jerusalem and the Military Services as well as world leaders. I want to pray that You will send Your angels to protect Your people. I have heard they are under attack, I pray for their salvation and I ask for their protection. I pray this in the Holy name of Your Son Jesus C…

Change me Holy Spirit

Psalm 139: 23 – 24 ESV
“Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
Lord each and every day of my life is before You and Lord God You know me better than I even know myself. As I meditate on these words today I want to ask You humbly come and search me. Lord, I want to ask You to take a look at what I should be changing.
Each day I dedicate my life into Your hands and I draw near to You on a daily basis. I have come before You and I humbly confess my sins. I pray and accept that You have forgiven me. Lord in humility I also ask to forgive those who come up against me. I forgive them and set them free in the name of your Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Lord, I want to ask You today to show me if I have grievous ways and how I can repent of my grievous ways. I am asking You to guide me in the way everlasting. I want to become more and more like You Lord Jesus.
Prayer
Heavenly Father, Lord hum…
