God is preparing you for greatness

February 3, 2016

Father, You have given me a heart to go after my destiny by using the gifts, talents and abilities You placed in me at the beginning of time. Now Lord, give me the plan for fulfilling my life purpose.

Lord, put good people around me as wise counsel so my plans will succeed. Allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide me into all Your truths. Allow me to write the vision You’ve given me for my ministry/my business. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the help of others, I will see my vision come to fruition. Strengthen my heart so that I will not grow weary of doing good.

Help me to focus on my destiny not my past Lord so I can remain steadfast, immovable and not swayed by the storms of life. If I keep my eyes on You, I will remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty, who no foe can stand against.

This year I will be steadfast in pursuit of my destiny! I will not be defeated! This is my “Yes” year! In Jesus name. Amen.

Prayer for Today

Father God, I pray the part of the Lord’s Prayer that says, “Your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven” often without thinking about it, but today I am asking for Your will to be done in my life.

Father, You know what good, right is and perfect for me, because every good and perfect gift comes from You. You know exactly what I need and when I need it. You know how to show Your strength, power and righteousness throughout my life. Today I commit to submit to Your overarching authority in my life. I permit You to have Your perfect way in me.

Lord, when my flesh starts to scream because it is uncomfortable, comfort me by your Holy Spirit. I’ve been praying for ________________________________________ (Fill in whatever you’ve been praying for. Some examples: a closer walk with God, a healthier lifestyle, a mate, a change of heart in your children, a financial blessing, deliverance from past pains, etc.) I know the first step to getting my prayers answered is for Your will to be done in my life.

I have tried to achieve what I want my way and it hasn’t worked. I have tried to fulfill my call and my purpose the way I thought was best but all I’ve done is messed up and left pieces of my dreams shattered throughout my life. NO MORE! Now God, I will do things Your way.

I will not listen to unwise council. I will keep my eyes steadfast and fixed on You because You are the author, the perfecter and the finisher of my faith.

In Jesus’ name I pray.  Amen.

January 27, 2016

Father, as I press to reach the greatness that You have deposited in me, I must remember that obedience to You is paramount in my quest to be all You created, planned and purposed me to be for Your glory. My obedience means more to You than any sacrifice I could make. (I Samuel 15:22)

I know You’re going to tell me to do some things, send me some down some paths that I don’t want to travel and allow me to go through some difficult and dark situations and circumstances. Father, in those times I need Your help maneuvering past my feelings so I can remain obedient to You because You require obedience. (Deuteronomy 5:33)

I may never know why You had me travel the paths where You led me but I still have to obey Your word in general (the Bible) and Your specific word to me. (Psalm 128:1) I know I will never achieve the greatness You have in store for me without my complete obedience to You. (Jeremiah 7:23)

Help me Father today and every day to submit to You. (Romans 6:19 and James 4:7) Help me not to hold anything back from You, but instead help me give You my everything and become Your love in the world as I become lost in You. (II John 1:6). In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Set back - come back

January 26, 2016

Father, as I press towards the mark of the higher calling in You (Philippians 13:12 – 14) and I seek after the Kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33), I find my inner voices reminding me of my past failures. Failed marriages, failed businesses, failed projects and failed relationships all come flooding back to me as I work to set plans to fulfill my God given purpose.

The feelings of disappointment that each failure caused begins to sweep over me like a storm driven wave. I end up thinking, “how can the God of all possibly use me to accomplish greater?” I find my steps slowing, my optimistic outlook weaning and my spiritual esteem faltering.

Then Lord, I consider the life of David. He was an adultery, a cold-hearted murderer and less than a stellar parent, yet You Father God, gave him the title of “a man after my own heart.” (Acts  13:22 – 23) Then I know there’s hope for me!

You Father God are not a respecter of person (Acts 10:34). If You allowed David to be the beginning of the greatest dynasty in history and showed him favor despite his failures, You will do the same for me if I do everything You want me to do.

So I press towards the greatness that has been deposited in me! In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

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.

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.

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.

Sharing God’s Word: Motivating God’s People

January 5, 2016

I Samuel 16:12b (NIV)
Then the Lord said, ‘Rise and anoint him; he is the one.”’ 

Have you ever been placed in a position that no one thought you were good enough to hold? This is the place where David found himself when Samuel told Jesse, David’s father, to call David in from the field tending the sheep so he could be considered as a candidate for the position of the next King of Israel.

Seven of Jesse’s sons were presented to Samuel and all seven were rejected by God. Samuel asked “Are these all the sons you have?” and Jesse replied no, there’s still the youngest. Samuel, had to ask Jesse to send for David and, low and behold, he was the one God had chosen.

In verse 7 the Lord tells Samuel, “The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” Many times in our lives we may not look the part or have the education that someone else may have but when God has chosen us to fulfill His plan, nothing else matters. God doesn’t judge us the way the world judges us. God judges are heart, which means He judges our character, our intentions and our ethics.

During our journey to greater heights in Christ in 2016, we must keep in the forefront of our minds that we are the ones that God has chosen for our particular assignments. God didn’t ask anyone else if you or I were good enough, smart enough, pretty or handsome enough for our assignments. God wrote our assignments in our DNA and on our hearts before we were born.

Decided that in 2016 you will not allow what others say or do deter you from fulfilling your God given destiny of greatness. If God called you, you’re the one!

for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable.”  Romans 11:29

God is faithful

Father God, I often pray the part of the Lord’s Prayer that says, “Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” without thinking about what I’m really saying. Today I am asking for Your will to be done in my life.

Father, You know what good, right and is perfect for me because every good and perfect gift comes from You. You know exactly what I need and when I need it. You know how to show Your strength, power and righteousness through my life. Today I commit to submitting to Your overarching authority over my life and I permit You to have Your perfect way in me.

Lord, when my flesh starts to scream because it is uncomfortable, comfort me by Your Holy Spirit. Father, I’ve been praying for (fill in whatever you’ve been praying for. Some examples: a closer walk with God, a healthier lifestyle, a mate, a change of heart, a financial blessing, your children, deliverance from past pains, etc.) ___________________________________________________ and I know the first step to moving forward in this is for Your will to be done in my life.

I will not listen to unwise council. I will keep my eyes steadfast and fix on You because You are the author, the perfecter and the finisher of my faith.

In Jesus name I pray.  Amen.
