Follow God

“But let me run loose and free, celebrating GOD ’s great work, Every bone in my body laughing, singing, “ GOD, there’s no one like you. You put the down-and-out on their feet and protect the unprotected from bullies!”” (Psalm‬ ‭35:9-10‬ ‭MSG‬‬)
Good morning Father, Lord Jesus I praise Your Name. Father God I come to You in the Name of Jesus. Thank You Jesusfor another day. You didn’t have to wake me today, but You did, thank You Jesus. I woke up this morning feeling so very blessed. Thank You for always walking with me Lord and for guiding my steps and my thoughts. Lord You are my inspiration and encouragement. Guide me as I follow in Your footsteps. “Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that.” (Ephesians‬ ‭5:1-2‬ ‭MSG‬‬). Lord need me filled with the desire to always seek You, not only when I am burdened with sorrow and sadness, but I have the desire to seek You in my pleasures and joys. Thank You Jesus for Your gracious kindness, Your mercy and Your protection. Father, teach me to be a person of honor. Teach me to be devoted to others in a way that honors You. Fill me with Your love. In Jesus Name. Amen!!!

Faith…Trust

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews‬ ‭11:6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father thank You for Your grace, mercy and everlasting favor. I open my heart and mind to You and receive every blessing You have for me. Father, God, I know that through You I can overcome any and every obstacle, so I ask You to help me live in the peace that You’ve provided for me. All of my trust is in You Lord. ““Yes, indeed—God is my salvation. I trust, I won’t be afraid. GOD —yes GOD!—is my strength and song, best of all, my salvation!”” (Isaiah‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭MSG‬‬). Lord Jesus thank You for being here with me in my heart. There are times when I don’t know what to do, I have faith that I can hear from You and follow Your will. Lord You are my only guide and I follow only Your ways. I will not let the past affect my future. I am new in Christ. “For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.” (II Corinthians‬ ‭5:14-15‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father God in the Name of Jesus guide me throughout my day. Thank You for the doors You have opened and the ones You have closed. So many times Lord You close doors and I’m not following Your guidance…trying to reopen what You have closed. Lord make those doors so difficult to open that I walk away realizing that I need to lean on You and not follow my fleshy desires. “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.” (I Corinthians‬ ‭10:13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father cover my family and friends with the Blood of Jesus and keep them safe. In Jesus Name. AMEN!!

Faith and Patience 

Focus on faith and patience, you’ll see God’s promises will come to pass in your life. Allow God to guide you, seek Him in everything you do. Every challenge you face good or bad seek Him. Don’t be discouraged. Remember the enemy attacks the hardest when he knows you are closest to your breakthrough. He may leave you alone if he thought you were going to settle. He’ll find ways to push your buttons, directly and indirectly. He will attack you through other people. He has many devices. He will cause things to appear as if they’re going wrong, which is usually the cause of our frustration. From frustration comes doubt. We need to remove the doubt from our hearts and our minds. If you keep pressing on toward Gods promise, through faith and patience, you will get there. Don’t look at the obstacles in your life today. Lift up your eyes up because you serve an Almighty God. Remember, God rewards the people who seek after Him. Stand in faith and keep believing things are shifting in your favor. As you press toward the promise, you will see God’s hand of favor and blessing, and you’ll live in the victory He has prepared for you! 
Have a blessed weekend. I love you all. 

No complaining…Lean on God

“for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.” (Philippians‬ ‭2:13-16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly thank Father You for a new day. Lord I will not become a complainer but I will be thankful for all that I have, all that You are blessing me with…my parents, my children, my grand babies, my grandmother, the friends and angels that are in my life. My job, a roof over my head, clothes on my back. Thank You Jesus You place so much in my reach. Father God forgive me for the sin of grumbling and complaining, for not walking in faith; remind me Lord I’m suppose to lean on You for guidance. “God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. Glory to God in the church! Glory to God in the Messiah, in Jesus! Glory down all the generations! Glory through all millennia! Oh, yes!” (Ephesians‬ ‭3:20-21‬ ‭MSG‬‬). Lord guide me with Your Word when I’m faced with challenges that are too much for me to handle. Father God I trust in You completely. I’ve felt when You removed my fears, thank You Jesus. You did not leave me with a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. Thank You Jesus You are all I need. In Jesus Name. Amen!!!

Faith

“Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:” (Hebrews‬ ‭10:35-36‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Thank You Jesus for blessing me with a new day. Lord fill me with your Holy Spirit. Father, thank you for sending Your Son to overcome the world, help me to always trust in Him. “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”” (John‬ ‭16:33‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Thank You Jesus for Your peace. Thank Father Your provision is always exactly what I need and exactly when I need it. Help me to look to You for provision in my life. Thank You that You are more than enough for me. Father, thank You for giving me power to overcome fear. I choose to face fear head-on and drive it out of my life. Show me any areas of my life where fear is holding me back so that I can press forward. “Awake now, he told the wind to pipe down and said to the sea, “Quiet! Settle down!” The wind ran out of breath; the sea became smooth as glass. Jesus reprimanded the disciples: “Why are you such cowards? Don’t you have any faith at all?”” (Mark‬ ‭4:39-40‬ ‭MSG‬‬). Thank You for filling me with Your Holy Spirit and empowering me to stand against the storms of life. Today I declare peace over every area of my life. Lord I understand that following Your direction in life I will face trials and tribulations….”Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.” (II Timothy‬ ‭3:12‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord I am ready, willing and able to follow You. Father God order my steps in Jesus Name. Amen!!!

Love…Trust

“Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday.” (Psalms‬ ‭37:5-6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father my desires are to know You, trust in You, to keep my faith in You strong. Holy Spirit guide me as I focus on Jesus. Keep me on the right path. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs‬ ‭3:5-6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord Jesus thank You for the peace You give me. Thank You for my trials they have helped mold me into who I am today…Lord I know I could never have made it without You, Your guidance, Your strength…but most of all Lord Jesus I would have never made it without Your love. “The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.” (Jeremiah‬ ‭31:3‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Thank You Jesus Your love is never ending. Lord, I know that life isn’t perfect and things won’t always go the way I want them to, but I trust in You. By faith, I receive Your grace, the power You have freely given to help me walk through any situation I face today. You are all I need. Help me not to trust in myself, but to put my trust in You and to rely only on You. Father, You have shown me what love is like by loving me first. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John‬ ‭3:16-17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Help me to follow the example of Jesus and live out all areas of love in my life. Lord, I believe that You are at work in my life, even during difficult times. I will remain steadfast and to never give up in obedience to You. Father, help me to see the truth as You have made it…Lord I Pray these not only for myself but for my family and friends. In Jesus Name. Amen!!!

Heavenly Father it’s a new day and a new beginning…Thank You Jesus! “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.” (Colossians‬ ‭3:15‬ ‭NKJV‬‬).
