  1. Open your eyes to see the glorious presence of our God in our midst.  The Holy One is here.  Let us all bow down before Him and adore Him, praise Him and lift up your voice to Him.  In Him no sin is found.  In Him there is fulness of joy.  We stand in holy ground.  Let us all reverence and fear His holy name.  In moments of deepest sorrow, look up to Him.  In time of troubles and tribulations seek His holy face.  He is shining before you and me.   Be still for the glory of the Lord coming down on your heart.   When your voice rises up in praise to Him, Gods heart is glad and blessings will fall upon our lives.  He burns with holy fire our hearts.  With splendor He is crowned.  In moments when life is so empty and there is no place to run.  Run to the arms of Jesus.  He is waiting for you and for me.  How awesome is the slight of the Lord.   When He comes to us to comfort our troubled souls.  Our radiant King of light has compassion on our lonely souls.   Be still in the presence of the Lord for His glory shall shine all around you. 

  2. You are appreciated by God

    You and I will never know how much we are appreciated by the living God.  He predestined us to be His wonderful children who love Him with all our heart, mind and soul.  God says to all of us.  I have loved you with an everlasting love.  I have created you.  You are written in the palm of My hands.   Bow down before the Lord in worship, in adoration, in praise, in honor to Him who has give His all for us.  I pray that Gods blessings be upon your life.    You and I are loved with an everlasting love.  For you are so special to God. :anguished:

  3. Hello there again, welcome to one of  my morning devotions today. ''God answers no at times''

    While I am not yet a parent, I believe that I can for a fact say that parents don't always answer their kids request with a yes, I go further by saying that, I no that they most times  they answer with a no or as they sometimes say ''wait that's not the right time, maybe later'', or sometimes they go as far as saying I have been there I no,don't you  trust me? yeah, I no these answers because though I am not a parent I am a daughter,and have been on the receiving end of those later answers, which at the time I felt was just not right but now that I am older and you as well I’m positively sure can think back and say, yes, it's a good thing she didn't or else.

    In 1Kings 19:1-3, we see God answering with a no. Elijah, I am sure you know this story and so I will get to the point, Elijah went to the Lord with a request to die, can you believe it? yes he sure did, and ofcourse I must tell you that this is the very same Elijah who had prayed that it might not rain and it didn't, the very same one that prayed that it would and it did, do you remember 1Kings 18:25,with the demonstration of God's power? God had been answering Elijah's prayer and not just answer but give him his heart's request only this time God didn't, his answer was no, it wasn't the right time, that's not how it had to happen, God wasn't done with him yet, God still had plans for his life, we see also that God knew his heart, and so instead of giving him his death wish, God gave him strength for the plans he had in mind for him. God gave him, strength for the mission he had for him.

    Today my encouragement to us all, myself included; is that we trust  that God knows best and the bible says in all things to give thanks in  for it's God's will for us in Christ Jesus1Tess.5:18.

    I write this knowing that this is a prayer site where we pray for each other, but knowing like myself sometimes we can want what we want, but knowing that at the end we have to trust the Lord.

    I live with you Proverbs 16:9, We can indeed plan our way but the Lord determines the steps, also Isaiah 40:31, it says about waiting on the Lord.

    Let us therefore encourage ourselves in the Lord.

    Whatever you are feeling inside your soul that eventually pass away and will remember no more.   But if the Lord has touched your heart, mind and soul, then that feeling, that thought will never pass away.  His presence  in our life is eternal.  His love is never ending.  He cares for us so much.  Give us the heart of Jesus.   Full of mercy.  Full of compassion.  Full of love.  You will feel sad forever.  No tears wil fall from your cheeks.  No one will hurt you no more.   Jesus is the center of your life.  At some point, you and I will feel happy forever.  Give us the heart of Jesus.  Full of peace, joy and hapiness.  In time, we shall feel calm again.  The tempest of life will be done away with.   Jesus calmed the strongest storms on earth.  Hear His voice coming from heaven.  In Me... ye shall find peace and joy.   Believe the eternal story that came down from heaven.  Dear God, no matter what happen to us.  No matter what we are going through.  Give us the heart of Jesus.  To love others just as He loved us.  To care for them.  Just as Jesus did.  Whatever the cost.  We shall follow Jesus all the way to heaven.  Amen

    "SIN"

    A quote I once heard Ravi Zaccharias say was, Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay.”  

     

    King David’s sin took him farther from God’s face than he ever imagined. The greatest pain of his life came during his separation from God’s hand of blessing and favor. He couldn’t bear the thought of losing his relationship with the One he loved the most. We can see this in the prayer David prayed after he had fallen into sin.

     

     David prayed, Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving kindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

    Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. (Psalm 51:1-3, 9-12).

     

     When David came to his senses he cried out to God for forgiveness and God graciously forgave him; however that did not erase the consequences of his sins, for David paid dearly for those sins in his life and the lives of his family.

     

    I'm sure if we knew the consequences of our sin before falling to temptation, how many of us would ever follow through with it?  If only we could see beforehand the harm that our sins bring to ourselves and to others I'm sure we would not fall prey to them. Remember Peters admonition in (1 Peter 5:8) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: The goal of our enemy is to destroy us and those we love by setting snares for us which will cause us to fall .

     

    If we desire to live for God and in the blessings of God, He commands us to seek Him and His purposes and plans. We need to look down the road and calculate the cost of our decisions. We must keep our eyes firmly fixed on His path and stay true to Him and conscientiously stay focused.

     

    Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, (Hebrews 12:1)

     

    Listen to a short testimony and song by the Cathedrals Quartet

    Coming before Your holy throne o Lord.   I set my eyes on You.   Come and help us and guide us to our eternal home in heaven.  Amen

  7. Worry not for the things of this earth.  All things shall pass away, but Gods word and His wonderful promises will never ever pass away.   As we get old and our hair gets gray and wrinkles comes out in our faces, our eyes are wide open to see the promises of God coming to pass.  His eternal promise to all of us is this.   I am going to prepare a place for you.  That where I am, there you may be also.    Jesus was thinking about our own existence.  Our whole being belongs to Him.   He had no house to live in.  No place to rest.  No bank account, nothing to worry about.  He told Pilate the whole truth about His own existence.   Jesus said.  My kingdom is not of this world.   My kingdom is of another place.  John 18.36   Everyone who loves Jesus with all their heart, mind and soul, is going to that place.  A heavenly kingdom prepared for all His dear chldren who serve Him faithfully, truthfully and have an eternal vision of Gods love reflected in His word.      Fast, pray, and ask Jesus to show you the path that lead us all to heaven.  Because that is where we all are gona end up some wonderful day.   All our relatives, friends and loved ones will be there to welcome us in along with Jesus.   O what a blessed day that will be.... when my Jesus I shall see...

    I hope everyone is doing well. But I want to talk to you about the meaning of this life as we know it. If you're similar to me, at times you may think about life beyond earth. Wondering what Heaven is like, or to finally see God face to face, have your questions answered that's been lingering, or to try and have the slightest understanding of the mind of God. But there is one thing that's sure. Our time here on earth I always like to say is an audition for earning a spot in heaven. We should take that seriously. It isn't enough to just say "I’m a good person so I know I'm going to heaven". There is more to it than that. Yes you should continue to do good works just as God has done many great works when he spent time on earth, before and after his death. Those things which are manifested in God are also manifested in us.  “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. 13 You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. 14 Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!  - John 14. 12-14. 
    It’s not an easy walk following after God, because each day to come we will always fall short of his amazing grace. But the beauty of it all is we have a chance everyday to be a better version of ourselves. So many people do not have the opportunities to make it right. Right now as you read these words someone is taking their last breath, someone is dying, someone is hungry, tired of life, contemplating suicide, all sorts of things are happening at this moment. But we should be bold in our faith and not be ashamed of the God who died for our sins. “For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile." Romans 1.16. I just want to encourage you to be a better you and continue to seek more from God. We shouldn't be stagnant in our growth and our relationship in Christ. Read your Bible more, pray more, be a better person, and let the God in you show. God bless you!
     

  9. Who in this world will lead us all to heavens gates?  In whom do we trust?  Which way should we take?    Pray, fast before the Lord and ask to send a wonderful, caring and loving individual who fears God above all things.  God alone sends angels along our way and He will provide for us the right person to lead us and to bless us.  America is a Christian Country.   So all Christians should fast and pray.   Aks and ye shall receive says the Lord.   What are we asking of the Lord today?   Whom are we gona trust?  Believe God.  Trust in Him.  The Pilgrims and the Puritans founded this country for the glory of God.  So, let us all look up and trust God to do His will.   May the glory of the Lors shine over us and give us the right person to lead us all to the gates of heaven. 

  10. Heavy laden and weak I have come before the Lord.   He shines before our eyes.  Bowing down before Him and asking for mercy and compassion.  He is so gentle and so pure.  He reaches His holy hands and says.   I am with you.  Never ever fear anything.  Continue the journey to heavens gates.   This world is not your home.  Your home is in heaven.  You alone are holy o Lord.  You alone are worthy of all praise.  You deserve all the glory from our hearts.   Let Your praises fill our heart.  The sacrifice of praise.   For Thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes.  I have walked in Thy truth.  Psalm 26.3

  11. Bless the Lord all the time.  Jesus deserves our worship.   Pray and fast that the right leader will be sent from heaven.  

  12. We trust in You o Lord.  We believe You are the One who rules the world.  We bow down before you in praise and adoration.   Amen

  13. For His name is great and worthy to be praised.   He lift us up from the depths of depression and stress.  For His name is great.  Just call on Him and ask to deliver you from satans grasp and He will rebuke the devourer.   Let us all raise our voice in praise, honor and glory to HIm.  He is coming soon.  He wants us all to be in heaven praising Him and adoring His name.  

  14. Dear God, save the souls of all candidates.   Make America a missionary sending country.   May the General Election be a time of reflection to who is the one chosen by God and He alone will save America.  In Jesus name.  Amen

    Emmanuel... God is with us.  O blessed Redeemer You are our living King of kings and Lord of lords.  And when the sun rises I shall sing to the Lord a new song of praise to Him.  And when Your eyes are on this child... my heart shall rejoice in Thee alone.   And when the flowers wake up from the sleeping garden, I shall rise my hands up and say... Jesus, what a wonder You are to all of us.  So gentle, so kind, so good to all of us.  You shine like a bright morning star sowing us the way to heaven.  Blessed Redeemer, wonderful Lord.   Dancing and singing in joy and hapiness before the Lord.  You are the sweetest name of all.  You always hear me when I call.  You always lift me up when I fall.  One thing I have asked from the Lord, and that I shall seek.  That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.  To behold the beauty of Lord and to meditate in His temple.   Psalm 27.4

    Sacred treasure that we should keep down deep in our hearts.  Obeying what it says.   So precious is Gods word to our hearts.  All the best things comes out from its pages.  Glorious presence of God comes to our life when we start reading it and loving it all the days of our life.    Amen

    Great in mystery and full of love.  His bountiful care is everwhere we see.  What tongue can recite the wonderful things He has done for those who fear His name?  He dwells in the light which no man can see.  But His holy presence is everywhere.  We can feel it.  We can taste it.  Let us all bow down before Him in worship, in adoration, in praise to Him.   Faitful and true, a righteous Judge.  With heart of mercy and compassion He is coming back to earth to take us all to heaven.    He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords.  Who was and is and is to come.  Halleluyah, for our God the Almighty reigns.  Just, holy and true.  He is coming back for you and for me.   All glory, and all honor and all praise shall be unto Him now and forever more.   Amen and amen.  

  19. We bless You o Lord, we praise You  o Lord.  We magnify Your holy name.   Now and forever more.   Amen

  20. Open your eyes and see the season of change.  Gods word is true and Jesus, our dear Lord is coming for you and for me.   Famines, earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars.  Jesus is at the door. 

  21. Listen with your heart.

    Every moment we spend together praying, fasting, speaking in truth what Jesus taught us in His word.  These words touches us our hearts, minds and lives forever.  The things that we share and learn from others come as blessings to our life.  Jesus is magnified with our words and we must learn to listen with our hearst just as Jesus did to Samaritan woman at the well.  Jesus said.  You had a lot of husbands and the one you have right now it is not your husband.   Jesus knew it all.  He listen with His heart.  Let us do this.

    No food, no water, no blanket, no bed to sleep on.  What an emptiness of life we life far away from the Jesus arms.   No shelter to keep ourselves from the cold, not even a porch with rocker to ponder our future on earth.  Without Jesus we are homeless and in need of an arm to lean on.  His love can restore in us a new hope.  After it is withered and died we can make it come alive again and again.    For hope is what will get us through and the love that passeth all understanding will lead us all to glory.  Draw us closer to You o Lord.  And never ever let us go.  We lay it down again to hear You say.  I am your friend.  He wil heal our brokenness and willingly will bind the wounds that left us scarred and bring soundness to our minds.  Every day praise and extol Him.  He is worthy of glory.   Amen

    All of my life, I have been taught about faith, oftentimes referring to the scripture in Hebrews, Faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things not seen.  I have lived by my faith in every area of my life and have never been disappointed.  In the last year, I have become more challenged in my faith than ever.  In every challenge and experience in my life, I always reached to God and said, "it's me and you daddy.  Let's do this."  While this may sound comical, this was my way of letting him know that I was trusting him through the process every step of the way.  And, each time, he showed up and showed out.  I am in this Christian of business owners and shared my faith.  I recall sharing the story about Harriet Tubman.  Her faith story was so intriguing.  She never moved or acted without direction from God.  Not one runaway slave under her direction was caught.  Surprisingly, these men of God could not believe it.  Just as I have shared in my own world and my own testimony, they look at me sideways.  This has become troubling to me.  This last year, I have had to face numerous challenges in my business, cash flow the most critical.  My business has been upside down.  Banks keep rejecting my plans.  People (to include Christians) have not been there.  I'm still standing.  I continue to believe that God will do what he says that he will do.  I have deliberately separated myself from those that (with money) want to diminish my faith in God.  Yet, I don't want to miss God's divine grace through my ego getting in the way.  I am praying for humility.  I am praying for God's clear direction.  I am praying for a financial breakthrough.  I am praying for a Christian investor . . . someone who (too) walks in faith, not by sight. To God be the glory for all the things he has done!

  24. LOVE IS PROVED WHEN TESTED!

    "These things have I written to unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." (1John 5:13).

     

    Notice the hand pointing portion of our opening verse. The Apostle John says, "...that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." Simply put, he is  saying,  "put the Name of Jesus to work!" That Name opens every door in every city and every nation. That's the Name you need for a life of consistent victory, anywhere.

     

    For example when Jesus gave the great commission in Mark 16:15 and said, "...GI ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature," He did so in His Name. He gave us His Name, and that's something bigger than the whole world. Philippians 2:10 says, "... at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under earth." This is the reason you can be comfortable, unruffled and at peace in any city, region or nation. You're an ambassador of Christ, on a divine mission, sent goth, not in your own name, but in the matchless Name of Jesus Christ.

     

    Luke's account in Acts 3, of how Peter and John healed the lame man at the gate of the temple called Beautiful, is a detailed example of men who dared to use the Name of Jesus. Incidentally, this was their first miracle after Jesus' ascension. When Peter met the man who was crippled from birth, he said, "...In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk" (Acts 3:6). The man couldn't walk in his own name, or in his earthly father's name; but he did in the Name of the Lord Jesus.

     

     

    Are there doors that seem to have been shut against you? Use the Name of Jesus! It's the Name above all names. The reason for the failure, defeat, sickness, and weakness in the lives of many people today is that, rather than Use the Name of Jesus, they trusted as it were in their own names. Psalm 20:7 AMP says, "some trust in and boast of chariots and some of horses, but we will trust in and boast of the name of the Lord our God."

     

     It doesn't matter the challenges you might be facing, whether it is in your finances or in your health, put the Name of Jesus to work. If it is a or a growth in your body, put your hand on it and command it to go in the Name of Jesus, and you'll definitely have results!!

         Halleluiah!!

    ❤ GOD BLESS YOU ❤

     

    YOURS IN CHRIST.

    Once we have come to the feet of the Lord Jesus, our image changes for the better.  From ugliness to beautiful.  From sadness to happiness.  From loneliness to joy.  The pursuit of happiness in this life make us seek God more than anything else.   People are not happy with themselves, so they are looking in strange places the joy they never had.   Only Jesus is the joy of our hearts and He will change our image into His own.
