Hope in the Power of Gods Word

“You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.” (John‬ ‭15:16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father thank You for a new day…Your love, mercy, grace and compassion I embrace with a thankful heart. “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” (I Corinthians‬ ‭15:57-58‬ ‭NKJV‬‬).

I pray that these words are a blessing to someone today…In Jesus Name. Amen!!!

Let God Guide You

“Oh, that my ways were directed To keep Your statutes!” (Psalms‬ ‭119:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father, search me, and if there is any evil ways in me, correct them, and direct my steps. I am leaning on You Lord, guide me to do Your will. Father let me ears, my thoughts, my heart be attentive to Your voice, Your work. Today I will not complain about the actions of others. I will keep my heart and thoughts focused on You Lord. “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” (Romans‬ ‭5:1-2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord Jesus, Your love is incredible. Focusing on Your love reminds me that it’s based on Your goodness, not my actions. Help me to receive Your love for me. Thank You Lord for allowing me to choose my own thoughts. I know the enemy will try to attack me mentally as well as physically. Strengthen me mentally Lord, I am not going to let satan declare war in my mind. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.” (II Corinthians‬ ‭10:4-6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Show me Lord ways that I can be a blessing to others. Father I am here to do Your will and work, use me as You want. I thank You, Father, that I am Your child and I am greatly blessed. Today, I choose to think good thoughts, focusing on Your goodness in my life. I am grateful that I can choose what thoughts I am going to dwell on. There are still areas in my life that need to come under Your authority and guidance. Lord give me Your grace and strength to give everything to You. In Jesus Name. Amen!!!

Happy Thursday 

“Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world. But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.” (Galatians‬ ‭4:3-5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father thank You for loving me so much and blessing me with a new day. Thank You Jesus for paying the highest price for me. “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans‬ ‭5:8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Guide me as I walk this journey with You. Lord I know this is not a perfect world but with You in my heart, my mind and my life my world can be like Utopia…I can do whatever God wants me to do! Because the Spirit of Christ is in me, I am filled with the same power that raised Jesus from the dead and am empowered to do anything He guides me to do…“For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another.” (Titus‬ ‭3:3‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord Jesus because You are in me I have strength when I am weak, clarity when I feel confused, the right words when I need them, hope when I feel discouraged, joy when I am weary, and the ability to do whatever God asks of me. “Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God,” (II Corinthians‬ ‭3:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father God thank You for Your Word, Your presence and guidance in my life. My hope, trust, belief and faith is and always will be in You. In Jesus Name. Amen!!!

We honor You guide us and use us to be a blessing to others. Help me to live with the balance of responsibility You created for me, so I can live with Your peace and enjoy life. I want to live a new life, determined to pursue You and Your promises. “He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God,” (Romans‬ ‭4:20‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). I am more than a conqueror. I stand in the victory of Jesus. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians‬ ‭4:13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Thank You Jesus for shedding Your Blood on the cross for me. Thank You Jesus for forgiveness, healing, peace, protection, I accept You Jesus in and throughout my life…You Jesus are my Lord and Savior. No attacks, threats, lies, or accusations can steal these away from me – not now or in the future. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (II Corinthians‬ ‭5:17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). In the Name of Jesus I declare that Jesus Christ lives in me I am above the influences of Satan! I will…“Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.” (I Peter‬ ‭5:9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬).

Thankful…Guidance 

“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (I Corinthians‬ ‭15:57‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father You are the author, You are my beginning and my end…I start my day with You and I end my day with You. “Direct my steps by Your word, And let no iniquity have dominion over me. Redeem me from the oppression of man, That I may keep Your precepts.” (Psalms‬ ‭119:133-134‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Thank You for a new day. Holy Spirit guide me with Gods Word that I may overcome each and every obstacle and challenge that I face today. “In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.” (Ephesians‬ ‭1:11-12‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Guide me when I feel myself becoming frustrated and angry to turn to Your Word for peace. Lord I know everything happens in due time and according to Your time. “To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:” (Ecclesiastes‬ ‭3:1‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father God give me patience as I wait on You. In Jesus Name. Amen!!!

Patience 

“He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.” (Colossians‬ ‭1:13-14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father thank You for Your grace, mercy and presence in my life; but most of all Father thank You for loving no matter what my faults are. “But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.” (II Peter‬ ‭1:5-7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Thank You for blessing me with a new day. Father God in the Name of Jesus equip me with the patience I need as I wait on You. Increase in me Lord hope, faith and perseverance as I wait on You. “But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” (James‬ ‭1:4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father God Guide me that I do not change the standard of love by giving in to my own selfish wants and desires, but to always love unconditionally wanting nothing in return. Help me remember that it is for gratification that love is held to the base in life. Guide me Lord that I follow it to where love is divine. Lord thank You for caring enough to know me personally and what I need to be doing with my life right now. Forgive me for drawing attention away from what I am being called to do and, instead, deflecting attention to others. “For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.” (Romans‬ ‭12:3‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Thank you for your patience, your forgiveness, and giving me another chance to get it right. Thank you Lord for Your Word, because I know that I will bring good to any situation no matter how bad it is now. I will praise and honor You in Jesus Name. Amen!!!

Joy…Guidance 

“Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.” (Romans‬ ‭12:16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father what a beautiful day You have blessed me with, thank You. “Let them shout for joy and be glad, Who favor my righteous cause; And let them say continually, “Let the LORD be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” And my tongue shall speak of Your righteousness And of Your praise all the day long.” (Psalms‬ ‭35:27-28‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). My God oh how I love You. You have brought me through so much. Those times when I didn’t know which way to turn…yet no matter where I am in life…through the good times and the bad You have been right here with me. Thank You for the path Your leading me down. I know my journey will not always be a walk in the park but I do know with You my Lord and Savior with me I can and I will accomplish and succeed in and through everything. I will not feed into guilt, fear, worry, anxiety, jealousy, envy, greed, resentment, hatred, bitterness, unforgiveness or self-pity….“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.” (Colossians‬ ‭3:23-24‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Thank You Jesus for Your love, Your strength…Thank You for the Holy Spirit that guides me, thank You Father for Your grace and Your mercy…what would we do without You?… Father God thank You for Your Word that brings me strength, courage, peace and a forgiving heart. Thank You for inspiring me everyday. In Jesus Name. Amen!!!
