Prayer #Friday

Image
Humbly Father God, I come into Your presence today with a grateful heart and with a full heart.  Lord thank You, that You are still establishing my steps, if it was left up to me I would be off the road long ago.
I praise and worship You for being there for me, for answered prayers, for vision and goals, for wisdom and understanding. Lord for keeping me safe and watching over my family and loved ones each and every day.
Lord as I start my weekend I want to pray for each and every person reading this prayer, Holy Spirit touches each persons heart, soul, and mind. Draw them closer to You, bless them with Your loving kindness.

I declare the blood of Jesus Christ over each person right now and thank You Lord for being my savior and I worship and praise You in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ.  Amen

Waiting for the New Year – 2018

Image
Isaiah 43: 19
“See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up;
do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.”
I cannot wait for the New Year 2018, I have great expectations and I am hoping for a better future. I have been thinking about what Isaiah is saying in Chapter 43 verse 19 “See” that means we need to look, open your eyes and look at something. “I am doing a new thing!” God says that we need to open our eyes and look at this new thing He is doing in our lives. 
It struck me that I am looking at my dream and I can hardly believe what I am looking at. But in faith, I can see God is making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. I also realize that God said He can turn back time and I have an opportunity in regaining lost ventures and opportunities.
My God is able to do anything I ask Him, to top it off I don’t have to worry about the past because He has washed my sins away. I also believe that even my enemies will help me go…

Setting goals for 2018

Image
Proverbs 16: 9

“In their hearts, humans plan their course,
but the LORD establishes their steps.”
Dream the impossible dream, write your goals down for 2018 and see how God establishes each of your steps.
Every day has its own challenges and we need to tackle the day with gusto and enthusiasm but seriously we all struggle with all kinds of mood swings.  Something may have happened the night before and when you wake up in the morning you dread that day. That is exactly when you should shake it off and try and look on the bright side of things.
So as you think about the year ahead of you, sit down and write all your goals down in ink. Why in ink? For your goals to materialize you need to actually take a piece of paper and write it down starting with My Goals for 2018. Listing all the things you want to achieve for the year.
You can either place the page in a book or against the wall where you can see it every day.
You also need to realize that sometimes it takes a while for goals to ma…

Trusting God to turn my mess into a message

Image
2 Corinthians 3: 18 “And we all, with unveiled face,
beholding the glory of the Lord,
are being transformed into the
same image from one degree of
glory to another. For this comes
from the Lord who is the Spirit.”
Travelling on this road going somewhere with people in my life, I feel that my life has been a mess. I am obviously speaking to God about my mess. I need guidance, I am asking that the veil is removed from my eyes and I want to be transformed into the same image God wants me to take.
I find looking back I think everything was and still is a mess. But as I look back I can see how each piece of the puzzle fits together. At the time I didn’t know my elbow from my toe and now the picture is a little clearer. I have learned that when I set goals for myself, it actually comes into being.
I know it sounds crazy but it sure does. I was paging through one of my love story books and came across my goal list for a certain year. To my, surprise each and every goal on my list actually m…

"Let us do good to all people"

Image
Galatians 6:10
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
I think we all have the opportunity to do good to all people.  You know the "car guard" waiting around for R2 you carry in your purse for watching your car.  Both you and I know that they cannot prevent someone from stealing your car.  But guess what we still give them the R2.

In your movie do you play the main character or are you just a spectator watching the movie?  You are the main character and you set the tone.  You have the ability to either bless someone or not, we all do.

I think we are all mentors to someone in our lives.  There is a little girl or boy watching you, learning from you whether you know it or not.

Lord help me to please live a God-focused life, focusing on You.  You are my world I love You with all my heart.  Amen

Be a generous giver.

Image
2 Corinthians 9: 6-8
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will
also reap sparingly,
and whoever sows generously
will also reap generously.
Each of you should give what you have
decided in your heart to give,
not reluctantly or under compulsion,
for God loves a cheerful giver.
And God is able to bless you abundantly,
so that in all things at all time,
having all that you need,
you will abound in every good work.”
It is Christmas time and we really should open our hearts to people in need.  You know the guy begging on the side of the road.  The elderly sitting all alone in their little rooms. Let us extend a generous hand towards the needy.
We are God’s stewards, our money has been entrusted to us to use wisely, we have the ability to spend all the cash we earn all of ourselves.  How about spending some money on a meal for someone in need this Christmas.
Give lovingly and without a grudge.  God said that He will bless you abundantly.  Tithings are also part of our praise and worship to the LORD…

Who is your encourager?

Image
Romans 16: 1-2 (HCSB)
“I commend to you our sister Phoebe,
who is a servant of the church in Cenchreae.
So you should welcome her in the LORD In a manner worthy of the saints
and assist her in whatever matter she may
require your help.
For indeed she has been a
benefactor of many
- and for me also.”
We all need encouragement and I am so fortunate to have people in my life that always encourage me.  Odette my daughter seems to be in tune with me and she constantly encourages me.  Andus my husband also knows when I am feeling down and in need of encouragement. 
I looked at this scripture and it is clear Phoebe is a servant of the church in Cenchreae.  She is constantly busy working with the people and helping where she can.  Paul is reminding the church to help her in whatever she needs. 
My husband constantly is by my side coaching me and reminding me that I am able to do whatever I put my mind to.  I must say thank you Andus, you and Odette seem to be in my movie every day.  I appreciate the e…

Abounding in God’s supernatural key component #1

Image
Acts 2: 47
“Praising God and enjoying the
favor of all the people.
And the Lord added to
their number daily
those who were being saved.”
I believe you and I both want to abound in God’s supernatural favor.  I know that I want to enjoy God’s supernatural favor each and every minute of each day in my own life.
In fact, I am constantly expecting God’s supernatural favor in my own life daily.  I think that the answer to receiving this supernatural favor lay in the praising of God.  We need to openly and undeniably praise God all the time.
I like to use scripture, let us use 1 Chronicles 16: 23-31 “Sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvellous deeds among all peoples. For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his dwelling place.  Ascribe to the LO…

Put on a garment of supernatural favor.

Image
Genesis 39: 21
“But the Lord was with Joseph,
and shewed him mercy,
and gave him favor
in the sight of the keeper
of the prison.”
Today I want to put on a garment of supernatural favor.  The first thing people come into contact with will be my shield of favor.  How is this possible? I believe that I am the righteousness of God in Christ.  I believe that I am accepted and righteous through the Blood of Jesus Christ.
Today I believe I enjoy God’s favor which surrounds me like a shield and is the first thing people come into contact with.
I am dressed for success and I feel that I am able to motivate and inspire each one of you.  Look what the LORD did for Joseph when he was in prison.  Joseph had supernatural favor with the prison keeper. 
God stretches each one of us sometimes we feel that we are on the edge of a difficult situation and then we become fearful.  Stop don’t be afraid because God is in control He will catch you if you fall and if not you will be strengthened in the process.

You have a direct line to God!

Image
Isaiah 44: 3
“For I will pour out water on him who is thirsty,
and streams on the dry ground;
I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring
and My blessing on your descendants;”
I believe the LORD will pour out water on us who is thirsty for His word.  How do we receive this blessing in our own lives?  I believe through prayer.  There are two ways you can pray for a specific situation or circumstance alone or you can ask someone to come to an agreement with you.
My prayer life is something that sustains me during the day, I cannot make it on my own.  I need the strength, wisdom, and understanding of the LORD each day.  I cannot do anything if I don’t consult with the LORD.
In my own life prayer is my direct line to the LORD.  I speak to Him all the time about things that worry me.
Prayer
Father God, humbly we come into Your presence today, LORD we ask that You will hear our prayers.  We stand in agreement that this will be a blessed Christmas season.  We pray that all people will have somewhere …

Psalm 37: 3
“Trust in the LORD
and do good.
Then you will live
safely in the
land and prosper.”
It’s Christmas time and we are all gearing up for the festive season. I do want to remind you today that we must stay focused and remember the reason for this season.  The Lord Jesus was born and we are celebrating His birth.  Let us not forget that our hope lay in the LORD always. 
As you enjoy time with your family and friends remember that we should place our complete confidence and trust in our God. Today I want to encourage you to do good things for others and to stay connected to the LORD.  Reading His Word each and every day.  We are feeding on the scripture and we are going to grow spiritually.
LORD, we place our hope in You and we know that You are keeping us safe each day.  Thank You that You are allowing our land to prosper.  For the good rains and great harvests.
Prayer
Abba Father, our hope is in You.  We worship and adore You, we bring You honor and glory.  We praise Your Holy Name, w…

#bountiful #blessings

Image
Psalm 13: 6
“I will sing to the LORD,
because He has dealt
bountifully with me.”
I am so grateful for the past year!  God is awesome and He is great, I can only come before Him in humble gratefulness.  When the year started I didn’t know how my year was going to unfold.  I then received a mail stating that my Book “Daily Devotional Ebenezer” looks good and my publisher is going to publish.
We worked on my book a couple of months and this month I was super blessed when God opened doors for me.  I was afforded the opportunity to go back to work again on a contract basis.  Then I am a radio presenter and I am baking cakes and my goodness my book is released to the public.
You never know how your year is going to unfold with the LORD.  But I will sing to the LORD because He has dealt bountifully with me.
Prayer
Blessings and honor to You LORD, I am so grateful and in awe, thank You, thank You, thank You so much for bountiful blessings I received this year.  I love and honor You so much, LORD.  L…

A time for giving

Image
Ecclesiastes 11: 1
“Be generous, and someday you will be rewarded.” It’s this time of year when many people are facing difficult times and when you feel that you need to hold onto what you have.  But wouldn’t it be so nice to help someone in need?
I think of the elderly that are struggling with finances, a place to stay and what about food on their tables.
We are reminded in Ecclesiastes to be generous and someday we will be rewarded.  One day you might be facing a difficulty and someone may just come along and help you. 
I know God is watching each one of us and we really need to show more compassion towards our fellow men and woman.  If you are able please help someone this Christmas, it is the season for giving and also for love and peace. Come now is the time to do something worth your while, you may have the means and you could do a good deed.  Please do that, don’t let this opportunity pass you by.
Prayer
Lord, please help us to open our hearts to our fellow men and women, people who a…

Colossians 3: 12-14
“So, as God’s own chosen people,
who are holy [set apart, sanctified
for His purpose] and well-beloved [by God Himself],
put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility,
gentleness, and patience [which has the power to endure
whatever injustice or unpleasantness comes, with good temper];
bearing graciously with one another,
and willingly forgiving each other if one has a cause
for complaint against another;
just as the Lord has forgiven you,
so should you forgive?
Beyond all these things put on and wrap yourselves in
[unselfish] love, which is the perfect bond
of unity [for everything is bound together in agreement
when each one seeks the best for others].”

A chosen generation, I believe that I was born for this moment in time, and so were you.  Yes, we live in a perilous world and love doesn’t seem to feature anywhere lately.  I don’t even notice any civility between people, husband’s and wives and even children are rude. 
It’s almost as though we have forgotten how to show compa…

Believe the unbelievable

Image
2 Timothy 4: 1 – 4
“In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus,
who will judge the living and the dead,
and in view of his appearing and his kingdom,
I give you this charge:
Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season;
correct, rebuke and encourage -
with great patience and careful instruction.
For the time will come when people will not
put up with sound doctrine.
Instead, to suit their own desires,
they will gather around them a great number
for teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
They will turn their ears away from the
truth and turn aside to myths.”
This Christmas season has become one of the best in my entire life.  I have been afforded the wonderful opportunity to present a Daily Devotional Ebenezer to the world.  God has been with me every step of the way and at one stage I believed that God had decided that I cannot publish.
I believed that God has His own timing and that I must believe and trust in Him.  My book is basically short scripture verses as daily dev…

Prayer

Image
Father God, Lord thank You so much for a beautiful day.  Bless each person on this site, Lord with supernatural favor from You as well as from each person they come into contact with.  I pray Lord and thank You that I am the righteousness of God in Christ. The Blood of Jesus Christ is my covering and I believe that I am the object of Your affection.  Lord, I thank You for the favor that surrounds me today as a shield, I also thank You that the first thing people come into contact with is my favor shield.
O Lord, thank You that I have Your favor and that I also enjoy this favor with man.  All day long people go out of their way to bless me and help me.  I have favor with everyone that I deal with and come into contact with today.  Lord thank You for doors that were once closed are now opened for me.  I believe Lord that I receive preferential treatment, and I have special privileges.  I am God’s favored child.
Lord thank You that no good thing will not be withheld from me.  Because of Go…

Are you listening?

Image
Acts 16: 14-15
One of those listening was a woman from the city
of Thyatira named Lydia,
a dealer in purple cloth.  She was a worshiper of God.
The Lord opened her heart to
respond to Paul’s message.
When she and the members of her
household were baptized,
she invited us to her home.
“If you consider me a believer in the LORD.”
she said, “come and stay at my house.”
And she persuaded us.
I don’t know how successful and great you are but are you listening today?  I God talking to you?  Has God opened your heart to His word?  We need to learn to hear God’s word and to act on it.
We must be open to new concepts and ideas so that we are able to grow spiritually.  I know many people resist Change and they find it hard to adjust. 
I want to encourage you today, why don’t you listen.  I see this woman listening to the Word of God spoken by Paul.  As she sat there God opened her heart and she responded to Paul’s message.  In that moment she allowed Paul to come into her house.  Her entire household had b…

Pursue your God-ordained passion.

Image
Proverbs 10: 21-23
The lips of the righteous feed many,
but fools die for lack of understanding.
It is the blessing of the LORD
that makes rich,
and He adds no sorrow to it.
Doing wickedness is like sport to a fool,
and so is wisdom to a man of understanding.
I believe God has a plan for each and every person reading this blog and sometimes we make mistakes and take a detour.  Thank God for His patience and faithful love. 
I believe that God is working something special in my own life here and now.  My daughter reminded me that I am the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus.  I am highly favored by God as well as by people.
I am working right now and God has a great plan in place for my life, the future is unknown to me and I can only believe and trust in God’s grace and supernatural favor.
Today I want to pray that You will also see the blessings of the LORD that make rich without adding any sorrow to it.
Prayer
O Father God, thank You, thank You, thank You for Your supernatural favor with Y…

Looking foolish

Image
1 Corinthians 3: 18 – 20
“Let no one deceive himself.  If any of you thinks
he is wise in this age,
he should become a fool,
so that he may become wise.
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight.
As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness.
And again, “The LORD knows that
the thoughts of the wise are futile.””

The past couple of days have been difficult for me, I was constantly reminded that I really look foolish and people will take offense with me.  I felt a little intimidated and worried about what people thought of me.  I gained a couple of kg’s and then my minds started telling me I am getting fat.  For someone who worries about their weight, this is a real threat.
I also have been plagued with negative thoughts the entire week.  This was so bad that on Thursday I really felt terrible, I was constantly reminded that I am foolish and that people look down on me.  I at some stage realized that I was so tearful. 
All of this was due to a system malfunction and …
