A constant reminder we need.

In The Shadow Of The Almighty Lord

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust him. For He will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease.

He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armour and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished.

If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. For He will order His angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone. You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honour them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.” Psalm 91:1-16

Walking In The Spirit

Dear Lord, I thank You that You have given me a spirit, the Holy Spirit of Yourself. A spirit of fear and timidity is not from You and I reject it. Help me to not let my own thoughts control me or cause me to feel down, powerless, or afraid. I lay claim to Your Word now, and I refuse anything less. Help me to always be walking in boldness and power in love, bring glory to You. Renew my mind today and make it to be completely calm, disciplined, and well-balanced. Give me a mind that is full of Your love and Your compassion.

In Jesus’ name. Amen

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7

A Birthday Prayer

Dear Lord Jesus, it has been another year… Another year You have crowned with great harvest and overflowing abundance. You have filled my life with Your blessings and grace; abundant blessings for the joyful times, and abundant grace for the sad. When I am weak, You carried me – then I am strong. You are always faithful.

You have anointed me with the oil of Your Spirit and Your grace on me. I will prosper for in your glory, there is no sickness, poverty or shame. Like a tree planted deep by the living water in You, I will not be anxious even in drought. But I will stay green and fruitful, no matter what the situation is. Give me the faith to be bold and courageous.

I thank You for Your love and the abundance of love around me, my family and friends, for they all come from You. Fill me with Your love and goodness, that I can overflow to others. You grant the desires of my heart because Your favour is upon me. You will open supernatural doors for me, that no man can shut; and shut doors that are no good for me, that no man can open.

I will be at the right place, at the right time; by Your divine appointment. You shower me with Your supernatural favour with man and Father God. Although I am here on earth, I am the ambassador of heaven – I don’t live by the rules of this earth, I live by the supernaturals of heaven. I bear Your name and there is power in Your name, the name of Jesus Christ, Son of the living God! I will fear no evil for You are with me always.

Grant me wisdom to make godly decisions that really makes a difference. Give me the strength and self-control to experience more breakthroughs in the year ahead, to a higher level and a greater glory. Use me, let my life make a difference, for You and Your kingdom.

Overflow me with Your divine Peace and Joy, Victories and Blessing, Favours and Grace, Provision and Promotion.  Give me powerful revelations of Jesus Christ, and light up my life! So others will know the Lord is really good.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings. Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.   Psalms 23:5-6

Lord Jesus, You have put a holy Helper to help me so that I will have the strength to resist, overcome and not compromise Your ways. You helped me to focus on You at all times, my Rock and Redeemer. You still care even when I fail. When I am weak-You are strong. When I cannot, You carry me to continue. Thank You for the wonderful rewards of peace, wholeness, and fulfilment You give to all those who live according to Your commandments, You have empowered me to have.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults. Keep your servant from deliberate sins! Don’t let them control me. Then I will be free of guilt and innocent of great sin. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.   Psalm 19:12-14

Dear Lord, You have left me with your ever-lasting peace. I pray that You would help me to be at peace with everyone that is in my life. Deliver me from strife and bitterness in any relationship. I pray for all my relationships to have a deep element of Your presence flowing through them. Help me to be holy as You are holy, so that I become someone people enjoy being around. Help me to always reflect Your love and grace to others. Show me how I can be a blessing to the people in my life that Your glory will be shine through me.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Pursue peace with everyone, and holiness, since no one will see God without it.  Watch carefully that no one falls short of God’s favor, that no well of bitterness springs up to trouble you and throw many others off the path.  Hebrews 12:14-15

Overheard an “oldie” the other day over the radio in the cab. It’s strange to hear something exactly the same but to hear it so differently at the same time; funny if you know what I mean…

The Holy Spirit’s beautiful presence and reminder, even from a worldly “to the max” source. Below is a rough transcript of what I heard on the inside instead:

DM-Strangelove

There are times,
When my crimes,
Seems almost unforgivable.
I gave in to sin,
Because life is so unpredictable.
But when you think I had enough,
From this sea of wrong;
It will take you more another riverful,
It’ll make you pay more for all it’s worth.
It will make all your heart frown.

Then,

Strangelove
The high Who came down low.
Strangelove
Who loves the unlovable.
Strangelove
For the blind and ugly.

When I stray,
Out of reach,
And missed the preach.

But still He took all my pain, again and again.
He forgives, over and over.

Now I will say it again.
Strangelove

When will you return to HIM?
**************************

God’s love is a strange love. It is so unfathomable for us to understand or comprehend. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Eph 3:18-19   He loves us while we are still sinners. He still loves us when we failed, again and again. He loves us when we cannot even love ourselves. This a strange love indeed, a real love… Bored at the cross by His Son.

Dear God, I thank You that before I ever knew You, You loved me enough to send Your Son to die for me so I wouldn’t have to pay the price for my own sins. Love so great as that is unfathomable. Help me to love others the way You love me. Fill me with Your love that it will overflows to others around me that others will know this love comes from You. Help me to understand and see Your sacrifice as Your ultimate display of Your love. Thank You for the cross, Lord!

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.    1 John 4:9-10

The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” Exodus 14:14

Thank You Lord Jesus, that I don’t have to run away from trouble and hide in fear. I can instead come to You and ask You to go before me and fight for me against all opposition. You go before me like cloud in the day and fire in the night. You keep me from the things I fear will harm me. You are my stronghold and my refuge. Thank You that You are my rear guard and You have always got my back. Help me to trust in You and not in my own strength when I am in trouble. While the world lives in uncertainty, we Your children lives in Your great joy and peace.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

You shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight; for the Lord will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard. Isaiah 52:12

Lord Jesus, I thank You that You will keep me safe and far from trouble. I ask for Your hand of protection to be upon me, especially upon my health, my family, my home, my workplace, and anywhere I maybe. Even if I am on the highest mountains or in the deepest seas, You are there with me. Take away all sense of impending doom, for they are the devil’s tricks. You have a great future and destiny for my life. No weapons formed against me will prosper. Give me a sense of Your presence and Your protection. Help me to sleep in peace at night, knowing You are guarding my dwelling place.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.
Psalms 4:8

Lord Jesus, I ask that You would give me greater faith. You are the Author and Finisher of my faith! Help me to trust You for the things I can’t see and fear. Help me to believe You for the things I hope for, a plan to prosper not harm. I know and thank You for hearing and answering my prayers, even though I may not see those answers manifest immediately, but they will. Give me courage and not to lose hope. Help me to grow ever stronger in faith as I wait on You. Thank You for my healing, prosperity and wholeness that is yet to come.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Be strong and courageous, and do it. Fear not, be not dismayed, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail or forsake you until you have finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord.   1 Chronicles 28:20

I will sing of Your greatness,
I will sing of Your love.
A love that is beyond comprehension,
A Love that is the living proof inside of me.

Some claimed to be most merciful,
Some claimed to be most powerful.
Empty words, I say.
But You demonstrated Your mercy,
You displayed Your Love.
At the cross…

The cross, the bloody cross; the lowest of humanity.
But You turned it into the mightiest weapon against the enemy.
You have shaken the earth and the heavens. And hell is broken through!
We are no longer condemned captives.
We are glad and willing servants to Your unending love.

Vengeance is divinely Yours.
You heard our cries and You heard our grievances.
Your justice calls out in our nights.
You will restore what we had lost and a hundred times more.
Our eternal salvation is assured.

In the midst of terror,
In the darkness of the fallen,
We will not fear, for You are with us.
The world will crumble before us, but we will not be afraid.
Because You will carry us and our families.

We, Your children, praise You…
Our God, our Lord, our Friend.
Our Lord, our Savior, our Jesus Christ…

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation. For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.   Romans 5:8-11

Dear Lord God, I pray that You would cause only excellent and profitable things to come out from my lips. So fill my heart with Your Spirit that its fruit will overflow with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control through my mouth. Help me to speak of positive things and not negative; to speak of things that bring life and not death. I know the words I speak can bring blessings into my life or they can keep blessings from me. Help me to open the flow of all You have for me by speaking life into it. Most of all, with my mouth I can praise and glorifying You.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Listen, for I will speak of excellent things, and from the opening of my lips will come right things.   Proverbs 8:6

Lord Jesus, help me to walk by faith and not be brought down by dark situations I see around me. Strengthen me in the face of distress and doubt. Help me to get my eyes off the things that make me afraid but put them on You instead, for no power is greater than Yours. While the world trembles in fear and uncertainty, I am secured and safe in You. No one else can do the impossible in my life but You. There are many situations in which I am depending on You to do the impossible, to fix and transform my circumstances for Your glory. I want to walk by faith every single day.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

The path we walk is charted by faith, not by what we see with our eyes.   2 Corinthians 5
