Prayer For Hope and Joy in My Heart

Dear Lord Jesus, I choose to believe in You and Your Word. The Bible says that because I have received You and follow You, I will have peace, love, and joy. When I don’t feel peaceful or sense Your hope and joy, help me to not trust my feelings. Help me to trust Your Word instead and not allow a work of the enemy try to steal all that from me. Set me free from any wrong thinking so that I can move into the hope and joy You have for me. You gave Your all-Your everything, so I can have Peace, Love and Joy – that’s Your very Presence.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the Lord.  Psalm 31:24

Why Pray?

I have asked this question before, and you probably had too. If God, the Father is all-knowing, all-powerful and omnipresent, then why do we need to pray? Why do we need to tell God something He has already known; even before we were given birth (Psalms 139:16). Then, isn’t this a silly ritual to “nag” at God Almighty over something again and again?

So why pray?

You see, prayer gives God-the Father, the rightful place as the Giver and makes us at the appropriate place of the Receiver (or beneficiary). With prayer, it gives the right back to God to intervene into our lives, in this fallen world. If you remember, God gave Adam the right to this world, but then it was inappropriately given to the devil. So for us the redeemed, prayer allows us to give God the right back into our lives for Him to make right what went wrong; even to deliver us from the evil one.

“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!   John 14:12-14

Christ came to give us a victorious life; a life that can be filled with miracles and wonders. It gives the Lord, our God great pleasure just simply by asking Him. Asking Him to do what only a God can do. And that’s called faith.

It's Payback Time

People don’t despise a thief who only steals to fill his hunger;
Still if they catch him, he must repay seven times over—he could end up losing everything he owns!  Proverbs 6:30-31

In Proverbs, we understood that even a thief caught in hunger would need to pay back 7 times, thus losing everything he ever owns. Now, have you ever had your most precious stolen from you?

It may be your health, marriage, finances, or even your loved ones. As a believer, you have a right to expect restoration of the things that the devil has stolen and robbed from you.

But payback time is definitely coming!

If the devil is attacking you in any area, don’t be a wide-eyed doe caught between a pair of headlights. Tell your daddy God, “Father, I will not allow the devil to rob me of my health, marriage, family or finances. These blessings are blood-bought and paid for by Your Son! I will not settle for anything less by the most precious blood of Jesus!”

Claim your right for restoration in Christ Jesus and the Father will hear you. Even if it has happened many years back, claim your restoration and payback! There will be such times of restoration of all things to the body of Christ that His people will only get better, stronger, healthier, and more successful and glorious!

When God restores, even under the old covenant, His people always received much more than what they had originally lost, in terms of quality and/or quantity. How much more will our restoration be under the new covenant because of the shed blood of the Lamb of God!

For the Scriptures say, “Revenge is Mine. I will settle all scores.” Romans 12:21  (VOICE)

It’s payback time!

 

 

 

Did the biblical exodus (Exodus 14:5-31), led by Moses through parting of the Red Sea, chased by the legion army of the then Pharaoh, with the Israelites ultimately delivered by God unharmed out of slavery really happened, contrary to sceptics?

Of course.

Then Moses raised his hand over the sea, and the Lord opened up a path through the water with a strong east wind. The wind blew all that night, turning the seabed into dry land. So the people of Israel walked through the middle of the sea on dry ground, with walls of water on each side!

Then the Egyptians—all of Pharaoh’s horses, chariots, and charioteers—chased them into the middle of the sea. But just before dawn the Lord looked down on the Egyptian army from the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw their forces into total confusion. He twisted their chariot wheels, making their chariots difficult to drive. “Let’s get out of here—away from these Israelites!” the Egyptians shouted. “The Lord is fighting for them against Egypt!”

When all the Israelites had reached the other side, the Lord said to Moses, “Raise your hand over the sea again. Then the waters will rush back and cover the Egyptians and their chariots and charioteers.” So as the sun began to rise, Moses raised his hand over the sea, and the water rushed back into its usual place. The Egyptians tried to escape, but the Lord swept them into the sea. Then the waters returned and covered all the chariots and charioteers—the entire army of Pharaoh. Of all the Egyptians who had chased the Israelites into the sea, not a single one survived. Exodus 14:21-28

Did the Biblical Exodus Led by Moses Really Happened?  Yes!

Suez| Egypt’s Antiquities Ministry announced this morning that a team of underwater archaeologists had discovered that remains of a large Egyptian army from the 14th century BC, at the bottom of the Gulf of Suez, 1.5 kilometres offshore from the modern city of  Ras-Gharib. The team was searching for the remains of ancient ships and artefacts related to Stone Age and Bronze Age trade in the Red Sea area, when they stumbled upon a gigantic mass of human bones darkened by age. 

This magnificient blade from an egyptian khopesh,  was certainly the weapon of an important character. It was discovered near the remains of a highly decorated war chariot, suggesting it could have belonged to a prince or nobleman.

This magnificent blade from an Egyptian Khopesh, discovered near the remains of a richly decorated war chariot, suggesting it could have belonged to a prince or nobleman.

The scientists lead by Professor Abdel Muhammad Gader and associated with Cairo University’s Faculty of Archaeology, have already recovered a total of more than 400 different skeletons, as well as hundreds of weapons and pieces of armour, also the remains of two war chariots, scattered over an area of approximately 200 square meters. They estimate that more than 5000 other bodies could be dispersed over a wider area, suggesting that an army of large size who have perished on the site.

Many clues on the site have brought Professor Gader and his team to conclude that the bodies could be linked to the famous episode of the Exodus. First of all, the ancient soldiers seem to have died on dry ground, since no  traces of boats or ships have been found in the area. The positions of the bodies and the fact that they were stuck in a vast quantity of clay and rock, implied that they could have died in a mudslide or a tidal wave.

The shear number of bodies suggests that a large ancient army perished on the site and the dramatic way by which they were killed, both seem to corroborate the biblical version of the Red Sea Crossing, when the army of the Egyptian Pharaoh was destroyed by the returning waters that Moses had parted. This new find certainly proves that there was indeed an Egyptian army of large size that was destroyed by the waters of the Red Sea during the reign of King Akhenaten.

This astounding discovery brings undeniable scientific proof that one the most famous episodes of the Old Testament was indeed, based on an historical event. It brings a brand new perspective on a story that many historians have been considering for years as a work of fiction, and suggesting that other themes like the “Plagues of Egypt” could indeed have an historical base.

A lot more research and many more recovery operations are to be expected on the site over the next few years, as Professor Gader and his team have already announced their desire to retrieve the rest of the bodies and artefacts from was has turned out to be one of the richest archaeological underwater sites ever discovered.

Deliverance and Restoration

Dear Lord Jesus, I thank You for being my refuge and my stronghold. I can hide myself in You and You will protect and keep me far from trouble. Deliver me from the enemy’s plan for my downfall and my destruction. I thank You that You have filled me with songs of deliverance, and a songs of joy. I will sing praises unto You as my battle cry; against any attack of the enemy! I worship You as my deliverer, protector, and provider. I praise You for Your peace, love, provision, and freedom in my life. In You I have all that I will ever need.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.

Faith Ablazed

Faith will make you fearless. Fear is the dark room for negativity, but Faith is immune system that will cast out fear; Faith anchors your stand even in the midst of all the fiery darts of the enemy. Faith will ultimate give you your victory.

In the gospels, Jesus was always assuring, “Do not fear. Just believe.”

If we can just cast all our cares to Christ, He is always there for us. Faith is based on Word of God. When the gospel goes forth, things will happens. Expect it to happen, this is because God works unceasingly (John 5:17) and have that expectation that He will work mightily; because of your faith… However little.

Faith in God is to trust our Lord Jesus. If The Lord send you on a path, even when in doubt; doubt the doubts.

And it is impossible to please God without faith (Hebrews‬ ‭11‬:‭6‬) And I believe the reverse is also true; that we His children pleases God the Father immensely if we activate our faith in Him.

Put your life on the altar for God and He will honor you. The Lord always take a nobody turning into a somebody. And if you are reading this, that’s you…

When I Need Victory over My Enemy

Lord Jesus, thank you for Your grace for me. Help me to see that I am standing firm on the everlasting foundation in You. You are my Rock and my Fortress, no matter what storms of attack the enemy sends out against me, I know it will pass and I will have the ultimate victory. What might bring other people down will not shake me, as You are my help, peace and hope. I will not waver because You will not waver. Thank You that no matter what happens, my foundation is in You and it will last forever. After all that happens to me or around me, I will be left standing. And You standing with me.

Thank You, Lord…

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

When the storms of life come, the wicked are whirled away, but the godly have a lasting foundation.   Proverbs 10:25
