Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides You, who acts on behalf of those who wait for Him. But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.
Isaiah 64:4, 1 Peter 2:9
He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of His hand He hid me; He made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in His quiver. God’s Word always hits the mark. For what is sin but missing the mark? But Jesus as the perfect Obedient Son hit the bullseye.
If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Peter 4:11
The LORD’s promises are pure, like silver refined in a furnace, purified seven times over. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.
Psalm 12:6, Psalm 19:10
BELIEVE as the apostle, Peter, who in Acts 3:6 told the lame beggar,
“Silver and gold have I none; but what I have, that give I thee. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”
We walk by faith and not by sight for appearances are deceiving and
even Satan the devil can masquerade as an “angel of light.” Be not deceived, God is not mocked for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap. So God’s Seed, His Word for it is His Will that none perish but that all come to His Everlasting Life for THIS is the Good News that Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life and no man comes to the Father except by believing in Him. Faith is a walk (life). Man does not live by bread alone but by every Word from the mouth of God. God sent His Word (Jesus) to heal and deliver us from sin and death.
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are open to their cry. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes but the Lord weighs the spirits. Commit your works to the Lord and your thoughts will be established. I would have lost heart unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart.
Psalm 34:15, Proverbs 16:2,3, Psalm 27:13, 14
If thou lose courage in the day of trouble, your strength is small.
But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.
Proverbs 24:10, Isaiah 40:31, 2 Corinthians 4:16, 2 Peter 3:18
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Galatians 6:9, Hebrews 12:3
What God has joined together no man can tear asunder. He has given us His Word in Christ Jesus the Faithful and True One and He has given us the unction of His Holy Spirit who is the pledge, the bonds of His Divine Love that never fails. His Truth endures forever.
A three-fold cord is not easily broken.
Today begin to exercise your faith and feed on His Word knowing
that Jesus is Lord and He desires you to grow in His Love by His Holy Spirit who is leading and guiding you into all Truth. By
prayer, speak Truth which is His Word–His Perfect Will and work
out this great salvation knowing that He is Lord of Life and He is
making all things work together for His glory. Starve the desires and lusts of your flesh–for your life is more than meat and drink but feast on His Will. Follow His Word and do as He instructs.
Today I speak LIFE that breaks every strong hold of every lie
that has exalted (lifted itself up in opposition) to the Truth
that is Jesus Christ Who is the Way to Life Everlasting with the Father who is God Almighty.
Every evil influence must flee and every hellish soul tie is broken
because He who is Faithful and True to a thousand generations that love and obey His Word is HERE. Emmanuel is one of His names and
it means, “God with us” -Shammah, another of His names and it means
“God is there” and Jesus is the SAME from everlasting to everlasting He is Lord. He has promised to never leave or forsake us and nothing is impossible with God but you must fear not and only believe. THEN you shall SEE the glory of God!
You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things, and by Your will they were created and have their being.
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair.
Luke 18:1, 2 Corinthians 4:1,8
Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge. Selah
Look at your tears and build pillars of courageous faith into your life.
He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name.
Psalm 62:8, Revelation 3:13
Great faith is fearless in the face of all opposition knowing that appearances are deceiving and that God is not a man that He can lie so great faith simply believes because it knows that the One who hears and answers prayer according to His Will, is Faithful and True to His Word and He will do it. God is not obligated to answer prayers of mere men’s thoughts, words or imaginations but He watches over His Word to perform it. He is the Faithful and True One searching the hearts of people everywhere seeking any who will remain faithful and true by committing themselves to His care as loving Father and faithful Husband.
The only real security (safety) in life is placing it in the hands of God. Jesus Christ is the right hand of God the Father Almighty
and we have confidence and courage in knowing He ever lives to pray for us to come home to the Father by He who is the right (righteous living) path (The Way, The Truth and The Life).
But God who is rich in mercy because of His great love with which
He loved us even when we were DEAD in our sin, MADE US ALIVE TOGETHER WITH CHRIST.
Bless the Lord, O my soul and forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your sins…
Who redeems your life from destruction…
Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies…
The forces of evil will flee from the presence of the Lord!
There is no place for evil in the presence of God.
Remember Jesus is the Living Word of God and He is the Mediator of God’s New Covenant (the New Testament) between God and man.
Jesus is Faithful and True, He is the Living Word of God.
Jesus says, “I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning.”
In Revelation 12:9, we know that,
“The great dragon was hurled down–that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.”
He (Satan, the devil, the father of all lies) was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them (the fallen angels, the demons that terrorize the hearts of men by fear, lies and innuendos) in heaven.
The Lord by His Word and His Holy Spirit is calling, training, leading, guiding and enabling and equipping you for every good work.
Discipline is training in His love. Afflictions are are teachers that draw us near to the very center of the heart of God.
We are learning that by our God we will scale any wall that opposes
His Will which is Written in His Word. We know He is our only source of strength and He is our strong defender. His Truth is our shield and buckler. No weapon formed against us shall prosper for
nothing can succeed against the Lord God Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth!
The righteous will hold to their ways, and those with clean hands will grow stronger. They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.
Job 17:9, Psalm 84:7
Like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them on its pinions. Who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Deuteronomy 32:11, Psalm 103:5
Do not be afraid; only believe! Pray continually–for this is your WALK, your TALK with God Almighty. Your walk determines your life
for as you believe in your heart, so you evidence in word and actions. Actions speak louder than words and so your faith is
proven the genuine article by your deeds.
As for God, His way is perfect; the Word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him.
2 Samuel 22:31
He sent His Word and healed and delivered them from destruction!
May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands–For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.
Psalm 149:6, Hebrews 4:12
On that day the LORD will use his fierce and powerful sword to punish Leviathan, that slippery snake, Leviathan, that twisting snake. He will kill that monster which lives in the sea. It was you who crushed the heads of Leviathan and gave him as food to the creatures of the desert. Awake, awake! Clothe yourself with strength, O arm of the LORD; awake, as in days gone by, as in generations of old. Was it not you who cut Rahab to pieces, who pierced that monster through?
Isaiah 27:1, Psalm 74:14, Isaiah 51:9
Put on your beautiful garments washed clean in the Blood of the Lamb you who are His pure and spotless Bride. For your Bridegroom is coming and His reward is in His hand–a two-fold recompense. He will repay all in like kind for what they have said and done. He will restore you who have walked uprightly and will repay in vengeance those who have opposed His holy ones.
For this purpose Jesus was revealed to destroy the works of the devil and He triumphed publicly and all things are placed under His feet having vanquished sin and death on the cross. It is FINISHED and Jesus is the Victor. This is the Victory that overcomes the world–even our faith!
And He has made us The Priestly Kingdom to God and His Father; to Him be glory and Empire to the eternity of eternities. Amen.
Mark 5:36, 1 Thessalonians 5:17, Revelation 1:6
