Jesus in the drivers seat

January 13, 2016

Father, as I begin to make plans and set goals for myself, my family and my professional life for this year, don’t let me forget that my plans must take a backseat to the plans You have for me. Nothing I plan is going to be better for me than what You have already ordained.

I know everything is not going to go the way I want it to go, but I am sure that everything will go the way You’ve ordained it to go if I allow You to lead me. Help me to mature to the point that when what You’ve ordained overrides my plans, I do not fret, complain or grumble. Instead of complaining I rest in the knowledge that You have my best interest at heart.

You planned my perfect path long ago, and You know what’s best for me. You will improve me until I fit into Your plan for me. Thank you, Lord, for caring enough about me that You planned for my greatness in the land of the living.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

I Thess 5 16

January 12, 2016

Father, as I take the time to look back over the last year, I realize I need to ask for Your forgiveness. Last year I didn’t focus on You. I didn’t focus on the goodness or the kindness You showed me every day.

I was focused on the things of this world – my financial shortfalls, the things I wanted that didn’t seem to come my way.  I focused on what I don’t have much more than I focused on the good You provided to me every day. For this, I am sorry and ask for Your forgiveness.

Lord, this year I commit to being more thankful. I will be thankful for Your love, Your goodness and Your provisions. I may not have everything I want, but You promised to supply my needs, not my greed. I may not have what I think someone else has, but I know You have my best interest at heart. I may not be able to accomplish everything I think I want to, but help me to accomplish everything You purpose me to do.

Lord, I commit to focusing on You, Your love and the mercy You show me and my family. I will purpose to be in a position of praising You for everything I have every day, and I will not complain as much this year as I did last year. I will allow Your grace and mercy to speak out of my life and into the world so that people can come to know You for themselves.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Stop and Go

January 11, 2016

Father God, this year I want to walk in Your greatness. I want You to manifest Your full power and authority over everything in my life. There are things in my life that want to hold me back from completing the assignments You purposed and planned for me; but I decree and declare that You are greater than any obstacle that may raise up against me or from within me.

Lord, I declare that You are greater than my heartaches, failures, depression, hurt feelings, pain of the past and my haters. You are greater than my anger, disappointments, doubt, shame and my shames. Yes Lord God! You surpass them all!

In 2016 I want You to manifest Your extensive power and authority over everything that would hold me back from fulfilling Your truth in my life.

I believe I walk in greatness and even greater is coming to me. Praise the name of the Lord Most High! I have expectations of greatness manifesting in my life this year. In Jesus name. Amen.

God whisper

 

December 17, 2015

Father, today was not promised to me, but through Your wisdom, grace, mercy, purpose, and plan for my life, You saw fit to let me see another day. For this, I say thank You.

Lord God, help me to be purposeful and focused on my tasks today. Help me not to waste the energy You’ve given me or be unproductive in my time management. Help me to seize every opportunity to display Your great love for mankind in everything I do.

Help me to not walk in selfish ambition, pride or arrogance, but to walk in humility before You and man. Lord, guide me in obedience to Your plan today. Let me not look back and wonder, “what if,” nor let me look too far forward saying, “what then.”  Let me look at today as the blessing You created for me.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Underserving but thank you Jesus

October 19, 2015

Father, I thank You for blessing me with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus.

Your Word says skillful and godly wisdom is in my house., which means my life, home and family are built on and through the understanding of Your word.  My home is made whole and it at peace through You. My home is established on a sound, solid and good foundation. By knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches — great priceless treasure: love, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, goodness, and joy.  Prosperity and welfare are in my house

Father in everything we do, we are working to take a righteous stand. Whatever You have given us to do, our family work at wholeheartedly, knowing that it’s for Your glory and not for men.

Father, we love each other with Your kind of love; sometimes we don’t show it, but we really do love each other and purpose to live in peace. Father, I give my home to Your charge. I entrust my house and the material gain, but most of all, the people who live in my home, into Your protection and care.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Christ in Me

October 14, 2015

Father, today I have decided to allow what You say about me to define me. I have allowed what other people say, what advertisers say and what others have done to me to define me, but NO MORE!

As of today, I will allow Your word to define who I am; who You say I really am. I claim my authentic self in Jesus name. Amen.

Anchor Holds

October 7, 2015

“When Darkness veils his lovely face, I rest on his unchanging grace. In every high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil.” – Edward Mote “My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less”

This morning Lord I want to thank You for Your Son, my Savior, Jesus Christ, who is my Anchor in the midst of my storms, hardships, heartaches and difficult situations. He is my all and all.

Father, when I could be lost in the despair of the situation; the wars and rumors of wars that are always swirling around us, the mass murders that are taking place in our country because bureaucrats refuse to pass simply laws that will hold people accountable or the financial hardship so many people are going through right now, but Jesus holds me close in the midst of all the raging storms going on around me.

Lord I thank You for my Anchor, Who not only holds me close in the midst of the storm going on around me but, holds me close to Him when the storms of fear, doubt, unforgiveness, guilt, shame and discontent are raging in me. Jesus is the Anchor that holds me fast no matter what is going on in or around me. In Christ I am secure! I thank You and pray this prayer in Jesus name. Amen.

“But if the storms don’t cease and if the winds keep on blowing in my life. My soul has been anchored in the Lord.” – Douglass Miller “My Soul Has Been Anchored”

Jesus-Is-My-Rock

October 5, 2015

“My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame but wholly lean on Jesus name. On Christ the solid Rock I stand. All other ground is sinking sand” – Edward Mote “My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less”

This morning Lord I want to thank You for Your Son, my Savior, Jesus Christ, who is my Rock and my Redeemer.

Father, when all could be lost I do not fret because I know Jesus is my firm foundation. Nothing can cause Him to be shaken; therefore, I will not be shaken. I am steadfast and immovable in Christ Jesus.

Lord I thank You for my The Solid Rock, who will cleft for me and allow me to hide myself in Him. When my enemies and my foes come for me, they have to go through my Rock, who is Jesus Christ and He is a power no foe can withstand. In Christ I am safe! I thank You and pray this prayer in Jesus name. Amen.

“When the earth all around me is sinking sand on Christ, the solid Rock I stand. When I need a shelter, when I need a friend I go to The Rock” – Dottie Rambo “I Go the The Rock””

October 2, 2015

Father, today I prayer for the families, friends and loved ones of the victims, the gunmen and the survivors of the yesterday’s mass shooting in Oregon.

There are people who want to make political and religious statements about the shooting but I’m sure the families and friends of those affected by the incident don’t care why it happened, just that it happened and their lives will never be the same again.

Father, heal their hearts! Lord, helps us, as a nation, to do better in light of the loss of lives due to the violence in our streets, in our homes, at our schools and in our communities.

Father, help us find our way back to You! God, help us get back to “One nation under God.” Help us get back to “In God we trust.” From the halls of the White House and Congress to the hallways of every school in America, we need You. Help us Father God, I pray in Jesus name. Amen.

Lord God, with man things are impossible but with You, nothing is impossible!

Father it seems that one thing after another keeps springing up in my life. Just when I think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, BAM, all goes black again because another issue has come up. I’m shaking my head! It feels like it will never stop!

On the outside it looks impossible but nothing is impossible for You. On the surface it looks like I’ll never make it through all the obstacles that are draining my finances, swallowing up my peace of mind and attacking my joy. I am exhausted just thinking about it all!

That is why I’m bringing all my baggage to You. Father, I need Your help with
