Diligence is the key...

Do you ever think about diligence? What it means? 2 Peter 1:5-8 in the Amplified states:

"For this very reason, [a]adding your diligence [to the divine promises], employ every effort in [b]exercising your faith to develop virtue (excellence, resolution, Christian energy), and in [exercising] virtue [develop] knowledge (intelligence),
And in [exercising] knowledge [develop] self-control, and in [exercising] self-control [develop] steadfastness (patience, endurance), and in [exercising] steadfastness [develop] godliness (piety),
And in [exercising] godliness [develop] brotherly affection, and in [exercising] brotherly affection [develop] Christian love.
For as these qualities are yours and increasingly abound in you, they will keep [you] from being idle or unfruitful unto the [[c]full personal] knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One)."

Why bring this up? We are supposed to be praying for America and Israel, aren't we? Exactly! We are and we need to be doing it "DILIGENTLY". We keep praying 1 Timothy 2:1-6
"FIRST OF all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men,
For kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way.
For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior,
Who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth.
For there [is only] one God, and [only] one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,
Who gave Himself as a ransom for all [people, a fact that was] attested to at the right and proper time."

 We are praying this for our leaders now and IN THE FUTURE! We keep lifting up those in positions of authority both here at home and in G-d's chosen land Israel. We diligently offer up prayers of thanksgiving for our country and the men and women who have stepped up to serve in areas of government. We pray for Godly wisdom and counsel for them, if they choose not to follow His will that they will be replaced by those that will! We pray for leadership of the armed forces both US and IDF, that plots and plans of the enemy will be brought to the surface and extinguished before any harm can happen. Most of all we pray for Jesus love to shine through in all we do.

Love and blessings!!

His plan, not mine!

 Focus not on the nine zillion little things that can pop up to distract, but the ONE most important. Spend time focusing on building relationship with God. Pray for those in position of leadership to have that special time with our Father. That it's not about what we want but what He has in store for us.

"I will make my home among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people." Ezekiel 37:27 (NLT)

"And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said:
“I will live in them
and walk among them.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people." 2 Corinthians 6:16 (NLT)

The more time we spend in prayer and in God's word the closer we grow to Him. When your praying this week remember its not just what you have to say its about being quiet and really listening to what HE has to say to you. That is what real relationship is about its not one sided. Take time and really read your bible. He speaks to us through it.

Love and Blessings!

A Prayer of Praise

"Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault. All glory to him who alone is God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Amen."
(Jude 1:23-25 NLT)

 Take time to go to the Father in praise.....So much going on not only in Israel but around the globe that the devil would like to use to make us despair, but Glory To God! Our Father is all powerful, Jesus already paid the price and the Holy Spirit is waiting to guide us in all we do. Amazing isn't it? Thank God for the protection already given to us, the peace already available, the security not given by man but by the Creator Himself. In these days ahead look to Him, not government. Pray for earthly leadership 1 Timothy 2: 1-7, and mean it! Pray Psalm 91 and know its true. A New Year begins this week on God's calendar be expectant!

Love and Blessings!

Proverbs 29:18 says, "Where there is no vision, the people perish..." (KJV).

 You have got to have a vision—a dream—if you want to accomplish all that God has for you. It is time to think big, pray big, and DREAM BIG!

 God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. It all starts with a dream. Every invention that was ever discovered, every ministry that was ever started, began with a dream. What about you? Have you stepped into your place, are you spending time with God learning what you need to be able to take your place in His plan?
While praying tonight really focus on the vision God has sent to you, that there is clarity. Then don't just sit around waiting GO, do what He says do. Think its impossible? Then it probable is, if you are trying to do it on your own, but watch out world if you let go, let God and give heed to the Holy Spirit the impossible not only becomes possible it becomes fact!

Love and Blessings!

And this be our motto - "In God is our trust,"

 On September 14, 1814, Francis Scott Key viewed through the clearing smoke, our United States flag still flying proudly after the 25-hour British bombardment of Fort McHenry. The scene inspired him to write a poem, which was later set to music, and it became the national anthem. 

 May the inspiration that fell upon Francis Scott Key while he glimpsed through the smoke so many years ago, encourage us now to peer beyond the challenges of this nation—to perceive the glory of the living God that blesses "the heaven rescued land" with "victory and peace." 

Love and Blessings!

 The following is the complete four-verse version of "The Star-Spangled Banner," containing the original spelling and punctuation from Francis Scott Key's manuscript in the Maryland Historical Society collection: 

O say can you see, by the dawn's early light, 
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming, 
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight 
O'er the ramparts we watch'd were so gallantly streaming? 
And the rocket's red glare, the bomb bursting in air, 
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there, 
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave 
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave? 

On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep 
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes, 
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep, 
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses? 
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam, 
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream, 
'Tis the star-spangled banner - O long may it wave 
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave! 

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore, 
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion 
A home and a Country should leave us no more? 
Their blood has wash'd out their foul footstep's pollution. 
No refuge could save the hireling and slave 
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave, 
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave 
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave. 

O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand 
Between their lov'd home and the war's desolation! 
Blest with vict'ry and peace may the heav'n rescued land 
Praise the power that hath made and preserv'd us a nation! 
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, 
And this be our motto - "In God is our trust," 
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave 
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

How change begins....

For change to happen in America for the blinders to be removed the Church must come together. We must be the ones to show the love of Christ.

Do you care about the fate of millions in this world do you spend time seeking the face of Jesus are you willing to lay down your lives for those who do not know him? There is great responsibility in this day and time the church in America has become stagnant as a whole. Do you care ? We've talked the talk it's time to walk the walk.
The best way to pray for our nation tonight is to pray for the church to be the CHURCH, when that happens everything else moves into place. Men and women of God taking their place in business and government walking in righteousness. Pray for it, expect it and hold on it's going to be amazing to be part of this time in history. 

Love and Blessings!

Joy and Confidence

No matter what your job or position in ministry is our Father is giving you direction via the Holy Spirit in you. It is important that we follow that direction with confidence! To do that we need to build ourselves (and each other!) up. Confidence is established in your heart when you know by experience that God will do what He said He would because He did it before! Meditate on all His goodness and remember everything He has already done! This will give you the Boldness to CRASH THROUGH whatever is standing in your way! Pray in the Spirit, remembering and thanking God for those times He has already met your needs, turned a situation around, given you favor, delivered you,nor caused you to succeed. That's your arsenal of faith being built up to KNOW He has done it before He will do it again.

"When the Lord brought back his exiles to Jerusalem,
    it was like a dream!
 We were filled with laughter,
    and we sang for joy.
And the other nations said,
    “What amazing things the Lord has done for them.”
 Yes, the Lord has done amazing things for us!
    What joy!
Restore our fortunes, Lord,
    as streams renew the desert.
 Those who plant in tears
    will harvest with shouts of joy.
They weep as they go to plant their seed,
    but they sing as they return with the harvest."
 Psalm 126 (NLT)

 Love and Blessings!

"A child gives love for the sake of love. 
Yet An adult can also learn to do the same."

 Praying for adults to have open eyes, ears, and hearts to have a willingness to learn from the children today. So many times that confirmation you're searching for that encouragement you need is as close as a child's smile. The Lord gives the young vision, are you listening? Are you encouraging?

Love and Blessings!!
