More of You OH Lord


Today is another day to give God glory and to reflect on what area He is trying to mature us through. As Christians, it is absolutely necessary for us to be engaged in an active working relationship with God. All of us can achieve this but there are some deliberate steps to take to ensure Godly success.

As the Deer Pants for the WaterGoogle Image

In His Presence
Let us practice to be in his presence. Set small goals and celebrate accomplishments. Share with others how you are doing in this area minutely, hourly, daily, weekly and monthly. Soon this will become a habit.

For example if you have never spent time reading the Word or praying to God.

1.    Take a moment, preferably as you wake up to read a verse in the Bible

2.    Talk to God about what to read and ask Him to reveal how He wants you to talk with him.

3.    Listen to what is coming in your spirit or mind (Godly things according to the fruits of the spirit in Galatians 5:22-23 and Philippians 4:8)

This could be 3-5 minutes. As you continue, the time will become more and there will be a genuine desire to spend more time talking to God and reading his word. It will be like when you have fallen in love with someone and you cannot wait to see and be with that special person. The Psalmist David captured it very well in Psalm 42:1 NIV “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.”

Living a Godly life takes deliberate practice through the help of the Holy Spirit. Keep a journal, write your strengths in the Lord, and write your weaknesses too. Talk to him about them and take deliberate actions to hold yourself accountable in both areas.

Accountability Necessary for Growth

If there is a mentorship, discipleship, coaching or counseling program, at your church seek the Lord and actively seek to be involved in order to be delivered, set free from your past and to help with being developed at various levels in your walk. Being accountable is a necessary step for becoming mature in your Christian walk. This is not just for new believers but again it is necessary for all levels in your walk.

What have you actively done today to ensure you are walking in covenant with Him?

Personal Testimony

I love you and appreciate all that you do to enhance the kingdom of God.

I am practicing to listen more to what He is saying to me. So while doing everything, my spirit and mind is communing with him. I actively invite The Lord to be in what I do, work or play and before even engaging I will ask God, if this is his will.

Why?

I want to be a leader that is different in that even when I am pressed, cast down, neglected or rejected, righteousness and holiness will always shine through. I have come a far way in this area. In the past, I would defend myself in every way possible to ensure there are no misunderstandings where I am concerned. Today, if there is an issue and there is an opportunity for clarification, I will do so and if there is no opportunity, I leave it to God and seek him to help me understand “the why” behind the issue and “what”, His will in it for me is.

Sometimes the learning is to be still and track my growth or to see where there is a deficiency. Other times it is to teach me to listen, be patient, trust him, and be obedient or just to exercise mercy and forgiveness.

God, through the Holy Spirit is helping and I am maturing in this area daily.

Prayer

I pray that today we will become closer to God and that his voice will be our guiding light. I love you and I will continue to pray for you and ask that you pray for me

 

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!!!

Transformation by Christ’s Kingdom Remnant Representative


God wants you to know on this day that when He is building his glory inside us it is not necessarily, what we would expect with our natural minds! We start to think about how He works to develop that power within and we may immediately picture ourselves laid out prostrate.  Laboring long hours in prayer and intercession or going on 40 day fasts or to spiritual retreats and all that stuff that certainly does help with the process, but actually the reality I am learning is a lot less deep, because it is already done.

Transformed, Finished WorkGod’s Finished Work

Being human we tend to want to justify our works by looking at what we do as a way to judge what God is doing deep on the inside of us! Now, please do not misunderstand me.  God does lead us to do things for his glory and the things mentioned above like prayer, intercession and fasting do edify us and are very advantageous to our walk with the Lord but there is still a work going on deep down within our spirit man that has nothing to do with anything that we could contribute. This is the work of our savior Jesus Christ on the cross and our now divine exchange! (2 Pet 1:3)

It often feels like nothing is happening when we are going about our lives, doing the standard normal stuff that needs to be done, daily. We are perusing the will of God, going to work and to church as usual, somehow we fit in everything else that needs to be done and we could be forgiven for thinking that because we are not feeding the 5000, raising the dead or parting the red sea that nothing major is really happening! (Rom 2:10) But God wants you to know that YOU ARE WRONG!

The real exchange of God’s glory being given to us happened when (Jesus) willingly gave his life on our behalf on the cross! However, over time our Father is able to build up that same glory inside us.  With every conversation, every vexation, every situation or problem at work, every family dilemma, every financial problem or issue, every test of integrity at church or at home, every monthly pay check, every prayer, every choice and every divine exchange, every test and trial, situation and circumstance to name but a few. He uses everything in our lives to help cultivate and develop the process of steadily building the glory of Christ deep down within our spirit. (Rom 11:36)

There is nothing that God does not and cannot use to help build us, even our dreams and visions and the inner revelations we receive serve as an expression or an outlet for what God is up to when all we are doing is perusing his will and going about our normal day to day routines. The word of God say’s “Don’t judge anything before the APPOINTED time” (1 Cor 4:5) because while you are in PROCESS you will not be able to see what is really going on because it looks like nothing is changing. (Rom 8:28)

When a butterfly is in the cocoon you cannot see what is taking place but when it is RELEASED, you cannot miss the TRANSFORMATION, it is clear for all to see what was happening in the hidden season and it’s a vision of BEAUTY.

Be encouraged that God is at work behind the scenes in our spirits as we speak regardless of what you perceive because of what Christ has already done! When you can’t see it praise him anyway because when your time comes you will be a sight to behold and truly UNRECOGNISABLE, Shalom!

 

Prayer of an Intercessor by Christ’s Kingdom Representative


Luke 18:1 (KJV) “And he spake a parable unto them [to this end], that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;”

Prayer Until Something Happens

Prayer Until Something Happens

You may be experiencing some extra tiredness or lethargy this week or in the coming months which is a little more than usual.  God has communicated to me that He is tired of his saints REJECTING their callings over their own trivial ambitions; many of his sons are being persecuted around the world as Satan has stepped up his campaign because we are really close to the mark in time where the tribulation will be officially taking place.

There is also a quick work being done in the spirit right now so the sons of God can be made mature and be ready to go and lead as much people to Christ as possible. (Rom 8:19) There is a lot going on behind the curtain in the spirit and if like me, you are a prophet or sensitive you will be able to feel that something has definitely intensified!

Father tonight I pray over my friends and ask you to help them deal with the changes that are going on in the spirit right now. Help them if they are running from any part of their calling to except what you have so graciously given them for their good.

Thank you for the quick work that you are doing right now father. Help my friends who you regard as your sons to be made manifest and be ready for such a time as this. Father you alone know the hour and how close we are to the official start of the tribulation. Therefore, I pray that you would impart to my brothers and sisters the urgency of this moment so they would not be caught off guard when the time comes and would have consciously been working on the end time assignments that you have given them.

Father speak to them in ways that they can understand, increase their dreams, visions and reinforce the unction of the Holy Spirit within them so that the ones who are assigned to them to be saved will be saved or the ones who need to be empowered to save others will be trained and ready to go!

Father thank you for what is happening behind the curtains because we know that your plans over our lives are for good and not for evil. Bring encouragement, validation, training and mentorship for your children who are on their knees in surrender before you and are pleading with you to be sent to do your will.

Father you said that this is the season of the UNDERDOG. Therefore, as you raise up the ones who are UNEXPECTED or UNDESIRABLE or who look to be OVERLOOKED, and who have been faithful but INSIGNIFICANT in their ministries until the time of your unveiling I pray that you would undergird them with the power of your word and the revelation of the heavenly arsenals at their disposal.

Father you are who we look to when all is said and done and you are the one we adore, we exalt you and we give you all the glory! I pray this prayer to you in the mighty, mighty name of Jesus (Yeshua) Amen (Shalom) X

Let go and Let God by Trudy Ross

Isaiah 40:28-31
“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.

Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” (NIV)

Where do I start…  Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you keep asking God..WHEN? When is this gonna change, why is this happening, why is it happening to me…well for quite a while that right there was me. At one point I began to think I was annoying God. Then guess what happened? I began to take notice of people around me and how much louder they must have been screaming God why me and when will THIS stop? I noticed I was drawn to a place where I always found my self in prayer on the behalf of these people. The more I did the more I saw something else God wanted me to do, not for me but for someone else.  Mind you my situation  had not changed but he had me busy doing and focusing on other stuff I didn’t  have the time to be focused on me. Guys when I tell you God is a God of HIS time he is!!!!

Let me fill you in some more, I recently migrated to the USA and believe me when I tell you I cried to go home more than anyone else that had taken this road. I was suddenly without a job and in a totally new culture. I applied to every job l could find, nothing happened ( it was during this time I think I became annoying to him…*why me Lord??*  every second of the day. I learned during  this time if it is not Gods time and his will it will not happen.

Fast forward to today I had totally stop stressing about my jobless situation and was busy focusing on what I could do in his kingdom. You know what? That’s all God wanted me to do , handle his business and he will take care of ours.

MY MIRACLE

I had started a event planning company back  home but didn’t think it would go anywhere here…mind you this is my passion, its what I love to do. Right when I wasn’t looking God was lining up everything to fall into place to show not just me when we let everything go and trust him what great thing he can do. He placed people in my life that was about to take things to another level it would blow minds..he reminded me of my dreams,my passion and reminded me that it was not dead it was just  sleeping waiting on the RIGHT TIME and trust me until he says its over it isn’t

I am sitting here getting ready to step out with this company and I am still in awe of how God brought it into place. Take a look at this  http://www.trustarrdesigns.com/  and just look at how big our God is.  He brought people into my life to fulfill his will and not only in my life but the  persons he was lining up. From where I’m sitting the sky is the limit from here , with God as my pilot though.

In closing I will leave with you this: We were put on this earth to praise him, to be about his business. It is when we do this and let go of stressing about  our daily situations and trust him ,we will see that he has always been about ours.

What God Wants?


God is looking for a broken and a contrite heart.  He mentioned in Psalm 51 that he would not reject this type of heart.

Brokenness

In all that we do, more than anything else God is looking to have us completely.

He wants us to come boldly to him and to seek after him as the deer panteth for the waters.

He wants to be the center of our hearts and the reason behind our existence.

God wants us all, holding nothing back.

Yes, He wants everything and he loves us just the way we are.

The songwriter says he looks beyond our faults and saw our needs.

 

How do I start giving God my all?

It starts with praying, reading his word and spending time in his presence and through the Holy Spirit; he will teach us the rest.

Our prayer meetings continue to be a blessing. Every morning at 5:00 am, we have a circle of people consisting of fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, friends, husbands, wives, grandmothers, aunt, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

In order words people from all lifestyles join the conference for prayer and prays to God.

It is simple!

They earnestly seek after God and make their request known to him. He interns multiple, increase, broaden the circle and change lives.

This morning was a blessing.  Analice led and the word was from Romans 8:35 to the end. Where the scripture outlines a series of tribulations and struggles that could separate us for Jesus.

Nevertheless, in the end the encouragement was, nothing can separate us from Jesus’ love.

What an assurance.

Therefore, be encouraged and ask the Holy Spirit to make your heart be like the heart of Jesus.

He is looking for a broken and a contrite heart.
