A Time for Everything!

Ecclesiastes 3 1-8

A Time for Everything

1 For everything there is a season,
a time for every activity under heaven.
2 A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
3 A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
4 A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
5 A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
6 A time to search and a time to quit searching.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
7 A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
8 A time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace.

 Think about your prayers, as we pray for Israel and our country (United States). Are you staying in a place led by the Holy Spirit or are you letting your "head" get in the way? When we have spent so much time praying a specific thing we start to let ourselves get in the way at times, not on purpose for sure but we can start to think we know what's best.....What about the Holy Spirit? He was sent here as our helper to guide us be sure your taking the time to pray IN THE SPIRIT and to take the time to LISTEN. Our Father has many plans and has given us a helper that will show us the way, but we must remember to listen, hear and act! Tonight pray in the Spirit for our country and Israel and then listen for what He has to share with you. Then when action is called for take that step of faith and go!

Love and Blessings!

Not Unknown

 Thinking about how so much of the work of personal and church ministry is unseen. Now that is the key here, it may be unseen but not UNKNOWN. Habakkuk 2:2-3

" Write the vision...Though it tarries, wait for it;Because it will surely come...."

 He gives us each a vision that we need to keep before us. It is our future, so we know the future just not all the details, just yet. Tonight lets pray for clarity of vision, for each of us to act on the God given ideas and plans they have been given. No holding back, moving forward to the KNOWN future, God's plan for us is good and not evil (Jer.29:11) and we know that God gives us victory through Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57).

Love and Blessings!

Don't know what to pray?

Much is going on in the world today, as Christians we need to stay alert as we pray for our Nation and Israel, not because of fear but for direction and answers from the Holy Spirit. Y(our) prayers do major things, releasing Gods plan here on earth. Prayers are the first line in Gods army. Be willing. 

 Don't know what to pray? Pray in the spirit, pray for understanding, you will receive! Start your prayers with Psalm 91, 121-122, 100, 118 We are praying these Psalm specifically tonight for Israel that leadership is bold and filled with supernatural wisdom pertaining to decisions being made now.

 Love and Blessings!

"We were sent to speak for Christ..." (2 Cor. 5:20).

 Another version of the Bible says, "Now then we are ambassadors for Christ." When you receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior you became a representative for Him in this world. Nations around the globe send ambassadors to other countries to represent their interests. And now you have been set here in this country to look after the interests of the kingdom of God! Think about that! Everywhere you go, you are representing the King of Kings. What an honor!

 Perhaps it might seem a little intimidating too. God has equipped you to be His ambassador. He gave you His name and the power of His word. He put His own Spirit inside of you. He has also given you the ability to hear and follow directions of that Spirit. You are equipped! You have God inside of you!

 Wherever you may be, begin to think differently about yourself. You are not just another ordinary man or woman, but an ambassador of Almighty God! Talk to Him about how to be His representative in everything you do. Let His interest be big on your mind and in your heart. You are an ambassador for Jesus Christ in this nation!

"You may be very ordinary, but God wants to make you extraordinary in the Holy Ghost" - Smith Wigglesworth

It's about families!

“My son, hear the instruction of your father; reject not nor forsake the teaching of your mother. For they are a [victor’s] chaplet (garland) of grace upon your head and chains and pendants [of gold worn by kings] for your neck.” Proverbs 1:8-9 AMP

 Today we pray that we are the fathers and mothers that God set us here to be. That we hear our Fathers instructions in regards to all things but most especially in regards to our children that we are able to share with them how much they are loved and their importance in the kingdom. That we live the same way we speak whether at home, work, or church. That we are here to build up champions in Christ. When we do that we are strengthened also, iron sharpens iron isn't just about adults. Its about families too!

Love and Blessings!

Being persistent in prayer.

 I want to share the following, the parable of the persistent widow;

 "Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart,  saying: “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. 3 Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, ‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’ And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man,yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’” Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said. And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” 
                                                                       Luke 18:1-8 (NKJV)

 Do you see? Jesus gave us a mandate not to stop, be persistent in our prayers! As long as we are praying for our leaders to be saved, for the knowledge of God to fill them, for our land to be healed and be one Nation under God.(1 Timothy 2:1-7) How can we lose? WE CAN'T! Don't give into what the negative world has to say about our country(s), we have the promises of God that tell us different.

 God will fulfill for us the promise of 2 Chronicles 7:14:

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (KJV)

Jehovah Nissi

Jehovah Nissi, The Lord my Banner of VICTORY! We have at some time or another felt maybe we did not have the knowledge or the strength to accomplish some task, if we are being honest we probably didn't! On our own that is. When we remember that Jesus is our banner, the standard that goes before us to make you a conqueror.

 "Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place." 
 2 Cor. 2:14 (NKJV)

 When God gave you a dream/vision to go out and serve Him, as a minister, teacher, preacher or even while out in the market place. He didn't expect you to do it on your own! With the Holy Spirit, holding up Jesus before us (our Banner) all things are not only possible but finished! Glory to God! Wherever you go remember it's not you, but Jesus! With Him before us there is nothing impossible!

Love and Blessings!

A Generation "Fixed"

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 honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.” (Psalms 91:14-16 NLT)

 Prayers for a generation that are "fixed" on The Lord God. Young mighty men and women of God who know who they are in Christ because of the blood of Christ. That not only hear the voice of the Father but ANSWER that voice. To know they are never alone and what a gift that is!

Love and blessings!

Urgent prayers for Israel!

Psalm 83 is a prayer written precisely to frustrate conspiracy against Israel. Speak it out and pray in the spirit. God has a mighty plan in place concerning Israel and our prayers are part of that. No man or nation can stand in the way of His plans and purpose. Take your places on the wall. 

Love and Blessings! 

"Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You: The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagrites; Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assyria also has joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot. Selah Deal with them as with Midian, As with Sisera, As with Jabin at the Brook Kishon, Who perished at En Dor, Who became as refuse on the earth. Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb, Yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna, Who said, “Let us take for ourselves The pastures of God for a possession.” O my God, make them like the whirling dust, Like the chaff before the wind! As the fire burns the woods, And as the flame sets the mountains on fire, So pursue them with Your tempest, And frighten them with Your storm. Fill their faces with shame, That they may seek Your name, O LORD. Let them be confounded and dismayed forever; Yes, let them be put to shame and perish, That they may know that You, whose name alone is the LORD, Are the Most High over all the earth." (Psalms 83:1-18 NKJV)

Chosen. Set apart. Appointed

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5).

 All of us have a destiny, a plan, and an assignment that God the father designed specifically for us. Everything about us that pertains to life, the plans for our lives, the promises made just for us, our healings (by His stripes we ARE healed), the words straight from Him, it was already done in the spirit; it’s already done saith the Lord!

 What does that mean? It means that He knows it all, has already taken care of it all, has already said it and settled it, so we don't have to continue walking around worrying, panicking, and trying to call our own shots! He operates in the spirit, everything God does, it’s through His spirit. When the Lord speaks to us and communicates with us, this is done through His word and also in the spirit realm.
All we need to do is continue to say yes to His will, His way, His word, and trust and believe it, receive it, and watch it become fully manifested and come to pass, because He’s already done it!

 “I will praise You forever, because You have done it; and in the presence of Your saints I will wait on Your name, for it is good.” (Psalm 52:9).

"But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light." (1 Peter 2:9 AMP)

 I love this!! Reading the above verse reminds me of the great plan God has for each of us.. Praise The Lord!! Praise Him for choosing you for this day and time. Next be sure and take the time to let a someone else know how wonderful and key to the kingdom of God they are.

Love and Blessings!!

Prayers for Our Nation.

As we prepare to gather with friends and family for picnics, parades, and fireworks this coming Friday, let us also pause to give thanks for the blessed freedoms we are celebrating on Independence Day. One of God’s best gifts to us is prayer, and how wonderful it is to live in a country where we can engage in prayer openly and freely! Do NOT take this for granted! I keep being reminded we have to use our gifts, and being able to pray freely and publicly is a gift use it.
Pray for our service men and women around the globe as they put their lives on the line for our freedoms. Pray for police and firefighters here in our country who put their lives on the line for us daily. Pray for those in political office from the city, county, and state levels all the way to Washington D.C. and the President that they not only come to a head knowledge of God our Father but Christ Jesus and the need of Him in this nation.

Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. (Proverbs 14:34)

 Glory to God there is a shift in the atmosphere, prayers are paving the way for a mighty move of God. Stay focused on God, listen to the Holy Spirit a change is in the air feel it. See it, our God is greater than any government, any nation He is our supply. Praise God!

Love and Blessings!
