12.Faith-without-Works

January 25, 2016

Father God, speaking “greater is coming” but not acting like I believe that it’s true is a waste of time.

I know acting like I believe it means that I change my words and my actions. Father God, help me to change my action so, by the power that You have invested in me, I can bring about the greater that I keep saying is coming.

My actions must show that I’ve moved from doubt and fear to belief and faith. My actions should show that I’ve left past failure in the past and am moving forward to greater triumphant.

Father, if I really believe that greater is coming, I must set aside time to spend with You one-on-one because it is through You; Your word and Your spirit, that my faith will be built up to believe that greater is here, in me and even more greater works will I do.

Father, help me to set aside unnecessary stuff so I can get in Your face, which is the face of greater. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

God is greater than

January 22, 2016

Lord, You said, “As a man thinks so is he.” So today, I think I am greater than any adversity that may come against me, because greater is He that is within me than he that is in the world. I think I am more than a conquer through Jesus Christ my Lord. I think You are able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than I can ever ask, think or even imagine. I think that You are my hope, song, joy, and contentment in the middle of my battles.

I think that I am the head and not the tail, the first and not the last. I think You will perfect everything that concerns me. I think that I have been made to prosper spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally, and financially in this life. I don’t have to wait until I get to heaven to live a life full of promise, hope and goodwill. I believe that You have purposed that I will live a life full and abundant with everything I need according to Your riches in glory right now.

I think that my family is blessed. I think that the works of my hands are blessed. I think that I am blessed and that I operate in wisdom, power and authority. As I think so I am, therefore I will think upon Your Word and I will be blessed.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Grace Moving in GOD'sJanuary 21, 2016

This year Father, as I pursue my greatness by pursuing You and Your plan for my life, there will be times people will tell me “no” when I know the answer should be “yes”. There will be times and in certain situations where I will be rejected and turned away as if I’m not good enough but, during these times I will not fret or worry because I know You are head over everything in heaven and on earth (I Chronicles 29:11 – 12).

Nothing is out of Your control; therefore, if man gives me an answer of “no” or “wait” after You’ve told me “yes”, I will continue to seek Your face and operate in Your favor until You make the necessary changes in me or in the situation (Philippians 4:19).

Father, I know You are with me at all times. You make Your face to shine upon me and You are gracious to me (Numbers 6:24 – 27). The greater that You have placed in me is greater than any power of or in the world system (I John 4:4 – 6). This is why I choose to rest in Your word, believe Your truths and work by faith (II Corinthians 5:7 and James 1:6).

Father, this year I will move and operate in greater, knowing that greater is coming! In Jesus name I pray, amen.

Refiners finer

January 19, 2015

Father, whether I want to admit it or not, I have a lot of stuff in me that does not bring You glory. Life has left me scarred and battered in so many places. I have built up walls and defense mechanisms against hurt, rejection and heartache. These walls and defense mechanisms have kept me from being truthful, honest, upright and have positioned me to not represent You in the best way.

Father, I have allowed fear, anger, a bad attitude and low esteem, among other things, to be embedded in the core of who I am. Just like when a miner pulls raw metal out of the ground and has to refine it so that it can be used for its rightful purpose, I need You to refine me so that I can be used for the purposes You have planned for me.

I know that I will have to go through a refining fire to remove my impurities but, if I want to look like Christ, I must allow You to purify me of my sins so I can be used by You. I want to be a clean and useful vessel for You. Refine me! Purify me! Use me! In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

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.
