Prayer for thanksgiving.

Philippians 1: 3-10
I thank my God in every remembrance of you,
always offering every prayer of mine with joy
[and with specific requests] for all of you, [thanking God]
for your participation and partnership
[both your comforting fellowship and gracious contributions]
in [advancing] the good news [regarding salvation]
from the first day [you heard it] until now.
I am convinced and confident of this very thing,
that He who has begun a good work in you will
[continue to] perfect and complete it until the
day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return].
It is right for me to feel this way about you,
because [you have me in your heart as]
I have you in my heart,
since both in my imprisonment and in
the defence and confirmation of the
good news [regarding salvation],
all of you share in [His matchless] grace with me. 
Today it is my prayer that you will receive the Holy Spirit into your life and that all supernatural favor will rest over you.I pray that God will ignite a flame in yo…

A great woman!

2 Kings 4: 8
“One day Elisha went to Shunem and a well-to-do woman was there,
who urged him to stay for a meal.
So whenever he came by,
he stopped there to eat.”
In this day and age I must be honest I really don’t know too many woman that are great in my eyes.I doubt if they are true Christian woman their actions speak for them.I am striving each and every day to become great, it is my heart’s desire to place God first in my life.
The Shunem woman was a great woman; she saw Elisha and knew who he was.She prepared a room for him and invited him to stay there whenever he came past her house.So from my point of view she place God first in her life.
Did she lack anything?No she was a “well-to-do” woman and it is she had lack of nothing but there was something so dearly wanted.She didn’t have children and her heart’s desire was to have a child.Do you think she asked Elisha for a child?No, Elisha found out she wanted a child and prayed for her.
A tragedy hits her house hold and her son die…

Philippians 4: 19
And my God will supply every need of yours
according to his riches in
glory in Christ Jesus.
I believe God knows what we need and when we need it.Sometimes we don’t know what we need and we also don’t know how to ask for it.
The Apostle Paul reminds us that God will supply every need of ours.We think it needs to be money, clothes and material wealth.
What about our spiritual lives?Don’t we need guidance, supernatural favor with God and with people?What about being able to study and read our bibles?
I want so many things in my life and I seem to want more and more and it seem that it isn’t enough.What I do realize is at some stage it is a total waste and many of the things I have is sitting on my shelves and I used it only once.
It is my heart’s desire to change and become more and more like the Lord Jesus Christ, perhaps I should focus my time and energy on the Word of God and learn more from it.Praying for the necessary wisdom and insight to be given to me, asking God fo…


2 Kings 5: 9 – 10
“So Naaman came with his horses and chariots and stood at the
door of Elisha’s house.And Elisha sent a messenger to him,
saying, “Go and wash in the Jordan seven times,
and your flesh shall be restored,
and you shall be clean.”
When I start reading what Elisha was doing I feel encouraged and I believe that we serve an awesome God.Now Naaman was a commander in the army of the king of Syria and he was a leper.They had captured a little girl from Israel and she told her master to go to the King of Israel because she knew that Naaman could be healed.
On hearing this King of Syria sent Naaman with a letter to the king of Israel with gifts asking that Naaman be healed.Well, the King of Israel was super angry because he didn’t have the ability to heal anybody.Elisha heard about the king tearing his clothes and Elisha said “why have you torn your clothes?”Send Naaman to me.
Naaman came to the prophet and a messenger came out of Elisha’s house telling Naaman to go and wash seven…


2 Kings 6: 11 – 14
“And the mind of the king of Syria was greatly troubled
because of this thing, and he called his servants and said to them,
“Will you not show me who of us is for the king of Israel?”
And one of his servants said, “None, my lord, O king;
but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel
the words that you speak in your bedroom.”
And he said, “Go and see where he is, that I may send and seize him.”
It was told him, “Behold, he is in Dothan.”
So he sent there horses and chariots
and a great army, and they came by night
and surrounded the city.”
When I was reading this passage in 2 Kings 6 I had to laugh.Imagine talking to your wife or husband confidentially and everything you told them come to light?I would believe that someone was standing by the door and eavesdropping.
The Syrian King was upset and he even asked his servants who was telling all his secret plans to seize the King of Israel, was there a snitch in the place?
I must be honest and tell you …

He is able to do immeasurably more than I can imagine.

Ephesians 3: 20-21
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more
than all we ask or imagine,
according to his power that is at work within us,
to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus
throughout all generations,
for ever and ever! Amen”
Again I am in hopeful expectation for something immeasurably more than I can ask for or even imagine.  God is in control of my life and I am expecting His supernatural favor in my own life, can you feel it?
I feel excited and looking forward to something spectacular to happen in my life and I am waiting in anticipation.
I am coming out of my comfort zone and trusting in God to open the right doors at the right time, I am waiting for a unexpected shift in my own life. You know the suddenly experiences, one thing after another after another.
When I was expecting my daughter the night before she was born I knew that she was going to make her appearance the next day.  I could feel her adjusting and moving around in my tummy.  I was both excite…


Judges 7: 1 – 3
Gideon Defeats the Midianites “Early in the morning, Jerub-Baal (that is, Gideon)
and all his men camped at the spring of Harod.
The camp of Midian was north of them in the valley near
the hill of Moreh. The Lord said to Gideon,
“You have too many men. I cannot deliver Midian into their hands,
or Israel would boast against me,
‘My own strength has saved me.’
Now announce to the army, ‘Anyone who trembles
with fear may turn back and leave Mount Gilead.’”
So twenty-two thousand men left,
while ten thousand remained.”

This is so awesome God used 300 men to beat the Army of the Midianites, the Amalekites and other eastern people.  They were as tick as locusts and their camels could no more be counted than the sand on the seashore.  Do you get it?  They were in multitudes and Gideon was to take 300 men.
What struck me was that God spoke to Gideon and told him to go and spy on the Midianites.  As they approached the tents on the outskirts of the camp they overhead the one …


2 Kings 6: 17
“And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, LORD, so that he may see.”
Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes,
and he looked and saw the hills full of
horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”
Elisha was mentored by Elijah and he received a double portion of Elijah’s anointing.  Now these two prophets in the Old Testament are also my top favorites. 
I know that I am living in a physical world; I need to touch and see and hear.  I honestly would love to also experience the same things Elisha and Elijah experience but I am not a prophet and my eyes cannot see into the Spiritual realm. Elisha’s servant was concerned when he saw the number of people in the army that was planning an attack on their city.
Elisha prayed and asked the LORD “Open his eyes, so that he may see.” In that moment God opened the servant’s eyes and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.  You know the enemy was embarking upon Elisha and he prayed to the LORD: “St…


James 1: 2 “Consider it all joy,
my brethren,
when you encounter various trials,”
You know you are under attack when your stomach is knotted and you can feel your nerves stretched as tight as bowstrings.  It seems every time you decide to fast the enemy decides to send someone to upset your day.
James must have been a really strong Christian telling us to “consider it all joy when we encounter various trials.”  As the people file into the office each with a specific complaint concerning hours not booked or not paid, I take a deep breath and say a prayer.
Smiling and listening to each person’s complaint I let them vent and say what they needed to say and go through the process checking the Time sheets with the hours book and whether they correspond on the system.  They do, then what happened?  Where is the money for the hours work?
I am at the right place at the right time, I have the answers and I feel that I can assist them.  Calm them down and assure them of their pay the next month.

God bless you

God please turn back the clock for me.

2 Kings 20: 11
“So Isaiah the prophet called out to the LORD,
and He brought the shadow of the steps ten steps
backward by which it had gone down
on the sundial of Ahaz.”
I believe God gives all of us a choice and we need to make the right decisions.  When reading 2 Kings 20 you will see that King Hezekiah is deadly sick.  Isaiah the prophet comes and tells the King, you are going to die, get your house in order.
One we have to keep our house in order because we do not know when the appointed time is.  For all we know today may be our last day and then we leave our homes in a mess.  I have been worried about my home for some time and am constantly trying to keep everything in order.
King Hezekiah asked that the clock be turned back 10 steps because he knew this would be a challenge.  I was reading this and God is so faithful He moves the dial back ten steps. 
Now this inspires me because I believe God is able to restore my life, I am asking God to help me with lost opportunities, you kn…

I have hopeful expectations for every day of my life, do you?

Romans 4: 18-20 “In hope he believed against hope,
that he should become the father of many nations,
as he had been told,
“So shall your offspring be.”
He did not weaken in faith when he considered his own body,
which was as good as dead
(since he was about a hundred years old),
or when he considered the barrenness of Sarah’s womb.
No unbelief made him waver
concerning the promise of God,
but he grew strong in his faith
as he gave glory to God”
I cannot believe this year is drawing to a close and it seems that time is slipping away like sands in a hourglass. When this year started I didn’t know how it would end but I believed and hoped that God will hear my cry and help me.
I must be honest my hopeful expectations have been met and I am still hopeful each and every day. I am learning to control my attitude with the help of the Holy Spirit.
I strive to draw near to God each day and I feel that I am making progress each and every day.  My heart’s desire is to hear God’s voice again and that…

I am being plagued by my past transgressions.
