Jesus Touch me by Dione Watt


1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV) “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”

I love it when I’m in the company of people that can uplift you, motivate you, and challenge you to become a much better YOU and not them or someone else.

I therefore have the honor of meeting one such person yesterday, and spent a life-changing evening with her and my best friend Trudy Ross.

Mrs Debbie Miller-Curtis, thank you so much for your passion, diligence, and obedience to our Lord, for I am a life that is changed as a result.

You are the perfect example of what a Christian should be.

Like the prophet Elisha who served under the prophet Elijah, I will never leave your side until I can inherit your mantle, so I imagine I will be making way too many trips to Jersey.

God is an on time God by Viris Hart


Good afternoon friends. I would like to tell you how God has been faithful to me over the past couple years!!! and very recently I was burdened about whether to let my house go or what exactly to do. In my mind I prayed and said Lord I have decided and have come to terms with letting the house go if that’s what you want me to do otherwise help me find a tenant. I had all my friends helping me to pray as well including Prayer Works.

Some people told me to walk away and get rid of the stress!!! so have been talking with the mortgage company. We worked out a payment arrangement and I did not consummate the agreement …I though for sure its over now but a mail came from the Mortgage company and I called them and they worked another arrangement. I had 30 days to make the payment. I had 2/3 and needed the other 1/3 I had no idea where I was gonna get it but I knew in my heart I was not going to ask anyone to help me. I became tired of asking for help. I was really depending on my tax returns. Well a few days later I found out that the IRS was auditing me. :( A couple of days before the deadline to make the payment I woke up had my devotion and went online to check my bank. My eyes almost popped out of my head there was so much money in my account I almost fainted. The IRS had put a portion of my returns ……the exact amount that I needed to make the payment and the extras I needed to mail it off!!! hallelujah!!!! Thank you Lord!!

Now I really started praying m ore fervently because I had a deadline in which to get the person. Many persons came and loved the place but did not come back. On the final day the agent called and told me she had a family. They looked at the house and told her they wanted to move in 5 days……..they moved in last Saturday and praise God…everything is on track…the arrangement has been accepted. Truly our God is an on time God!!! He was right on time here and I have learnt that I REALLY need to just trust him even if in my natural state of mind I cant see anything happening. He truly is working behind the scenes…….I also found out that my tenant had just lost her home in a foreclosure……..and that is the person he chose to help me to save mine…..how awesome is that!!!!!!

I also had asked for prayer for a new job….that has not materialized yet BUT I have gotten many clients since for my Insurance business. I was able to reinstate my license and now I really want to focus on my Insurance which would give me a lot more time to focus on other things….so please help me pray in this direction. I believe that this is where I should be……
God I love you!! Thank you for loving me, saving me, protecting me, caring for me, blessing me, providing for me, covering me everyday…you are AWESOME!!!

Get Ready for your comeback by Trudy Ross


 

Joel Chapter 2

25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.

God promises to always lead us into victory! That means, no matter what you are facing, no matter what’s going on in the world around you, no matter what anybody says, you should always be planning for a comeback! In the middle of that adversity or tough time, start making your list of who you’re going to invite to your victory celebration. You don’t have to wait for everything to be perfect before you decide to celebrate what God is going to do in your life.

Put some action behind your faith. That means if you’re in the hospital, start planning what you’re going to do when you get out. If you lost some money when the stock market went down, start planning your coming-out-of-debt party. When things don’t look good in the natural, remember, we serve a supernatural God. With God leading you into victory, you can always plan for increase. You can plan for restoration. You can plan for a comeback that will make you stronger and better than you ever were before!

When GOD Doesn’t Answer Prayer How “We” Think HE Should by Olayemi E. Ogunbase


I prayed, quoted Scripture, fasted, all things I thought would get God to move in the way I wanted Him to. I thought that having worship music going 24/7, attending the prayer meetings at church and joining prayer groups on Facebook would get Him to move how I wanted.

Re-read the last part of the previous sentence. “Get Him to move how I wanted”. And THAT was the problem. It was based on what “

I” wanted, not His will. I (like many of us) found a Scripture that lined up with my particular want & latched on to it. Please understand me, there is nothing wrong with holding on to a Scripture & asking in faith. But what WE want cannot be more important than what HE wants.

He sees our situation through a lens and view that our minds cannot begin to grasp. He sees the prayer request and us through perfect eyes. In addition to that, He not only sees the immediate impact of granting/not granting the prayer request, but the long term, ETERNAL ramifications.

Imagine with me for a moment: You have a 16 year old, newly licensed driver who comes to you saying “Dad (or Mom…I’m a man, so I use “Dad”), for my first car, I would like a Porsche 911 Turbo.” You not only own a Porsche dealership and could easily make this request happen, but the joy that would spread across your child’s face would be a beautiful thing.

But, you know your child. Although there is nothing wrong with a Porsche 911 Turbo in and of itself, that same piece of machinery with an inexperienced driver behind the wheel has the potential to not only destroy the driver, but any passengers in the vehicle and other drivers/pedestrians out on the road.

Our Lord knows us better than we know ourselves. He also knows that many times we will pray for something permanent as a reaction to temporary discomfort, even if that discomfort is actually for our benefit, and will bring us something far better than what we want or THINK we want.

I remember recently praying for a particular job. I wanted this job because of the salary it provided, and also because I thought I would be able to handle working the overnight/graveyard shift, freeing me up for a 2nd part time job during the day. I would have grown sick of the duties in this job in rather short order, and probably would have had a nervous breakdown working a full time graveyard shift job and another job. But all I could see was the pay.

My Father in Heaven answered this prayer with a resounding NO on a Wednesday. I tell you…I was UPSET! Have you ever seen a 31 year old man throw a temper tantrum? God did that day. It was not the finest moment of my walk. I calmed down, and began looking online. I looked for the next four days. On that 4th day, a Saturday, I was scouring job postings and found one that I had missed. I did a double take, because the position for this particular posting paid MORE, offered greater stability and fewer hours. On top of all that, I instantly knew (based on the description) I would like it far more than the previous job I just “HAD to have”. I prayed, put it in His hands, applied, interviewed and GOT THE JOB. I have been with this company since October 8, 2012 and have NEVER enjoyed going to work as much as I do now. Each day, I don’t “have to go to work”. I GET to go to work! I know the Lord blessed me with this position, but also the joy that comes with diligent work unto Him. To top it off, the company called a meeting the other day where they announced “We’ve decided to give you (the staff) 9 additional days of paid time off”.

The point is this. Had the Lord answered my prayer my way, He could have orchestrated it for my good. It could have been okay. But when He answered my prayer for stable employment in HIS way, it was, is and has been “exceedingly and abundantly more than all I could ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20).

I close with a command. Get your Bible and go to Proverbs chapter 3, verses 5 and 6. Memorize them and believe in the truth of those words MORE than you believe in gravity.

I love you.

In Him,
Yemi
