Let Everything That Has Breath Praise the Lord!

wpid-img_20150103_075451.jpgIn times of trouble, when you feel you need God most, keep praying. Have a little talk with Jesus. Tell him about your troubles. He will hear you. He will answer.

At times, God may seem far away. Regardless what it looks like, know that he is right there with you. He’s just a prayer away.

Walk by faith and not by sight. Let your light shine. Be the light. Use your God given gifts well. Be the best YOU can be. Be a blessing!

I pray, as Paul prayed, that you know God better. Know Jesus Christ. Seek the Lord through prayer. Study His Word. Spend time with Him daily.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. We serve a might God. No matter how big your problems are, God is bigger. Glory Hallelujah!

Be blessed! -JD

I’m Grateful for All I’ve Been Through. How About You?

The other day I sat in admiration, thanking God for all I’ve been through. My life may not have been what I wanted it to be but I’m assured it was God’s grace that kept me and brought me through.

As I began to reflect on the many years I have struggled and fought to maintain, I began to think about what I concluded as the reason God needed me to be in the seasons at the times I found myself in. If I were to look at my circumstances, I would always be in tears. I’m so glad I serve a mighty God. He gives me courage to face my fears. I can’t help but to give glory and honor to God. Praise the Lord!

We all will go through a season in life that will bring insurmountable challenges we may never understand. wpid-textgram_1389925148.pngHold on to God’s unchanging hands. Sometimes the path of righteousness will not be smooth and will not be easy to do. Know that you are not alone. God is with you. If you sat and thought about everything that isn’t going right in your life and compared yourself to ones who seem like everything is perfect. It’s misleading. You’re not looking in the right place. Look to God outside your circumstances. His way is perfect.

God sends trials to us to test our faith in him. Either we will choose to trust ourselves and do things our way or have faith and wait on him. Trials and tests are meant to challenge our faith. Challenges are meant to help us grow while we wait.

For everything there’s a time and a season. It is for God’s purpose. Every person you meet and every experience you encounter occurs for a reason. He’s preparing you for your future. God is refining you. He is perfecting the spiritual gifts in you.

God does everything according to his timing. You may think you have it all figured out according to your plan but it will work in his time. God does amazing things. Let your witness be about what Christ has done and not about your abilities and what you’ve done. Glorify his name. No matter the season you may be going through, wait on God. He’ll bring you through.

I’m grateful for all I’ve been through. How About You?

Be blessed! -JD

Praise the Lord!

Good morning! Good afternoon! Good evening wherever you are today.

Yesterday is over. It’s a new day. Today is not your yesterday.
Be determined, steadfast, committed in your spiritual walk today.
Let your heart not be weary. Let God have his way. Make a declaration today.
Lord, we need you. Show us the way.

God brought us back at the appointed time to the appointed place on this day.
God’s in the blessing business today!
Praise the Lord for the gift of life. Your gift will make room for you.
God will send you before great. Glorify God. Seek Him in all you do.

The enemy sits waiting to kill, steal, and destroy.
Don’t let him steal your joy.
God’s got a blessing with your name on it.
Declare, “I’ve got the victory. I’m claiming it!”
God promised. God said it. I believe it. That settles it. Go get your blessing.

Praise the Lord!

Be blessed! -JD

Habakkuk 2:2-3 Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. 3 For the vision is yet for the appointed time: But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it: Because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” NKJV

My Prayer for Today

I woke up with this on my heart, armed with God’s mighty weapons of warfare today. Because the enemy’s in full force and he didn’t come to play.

He’s come to kill, steal, and destroy. We mustn’t let him steal our joy. He knows we are believers. We’re covered by the blood. He knows we are children of God.

He’s pulling every trick in the book to divide us. That he may separate us from that which God has predestined, foreknew, and preplanned that concerns us. But he doesn’t stand a chance. No weapon, formed against us shall prosper.  Devil, you’ve been served notice today. We bind you under our feet as I pray:

Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus not asking for anything. But thanking you in advance for everything. Command the enemy to flee. Place him under our feet. Cancel every assignment. Erase self-doubt. Go through every house. Lord God, send healing, deliverance and provision in our time of need. Father you know what it is we need.

Meet every need in your provision. Let us not lose trust in Your Divine Providence. Dispatch your angels to protect us. We are covered by the blood of Jesus. I come against every lying tongue that rise against us shall not prosper. We are more than conquerors.

The race isn’t given to the swift, battle to the strong, but to those who will endure. Bless your name Lord. Father, I thank you for brand new grace and mercies. Thank you for waking us up on this side of heaven. Thank you for loving and blessing us. Your love endures forever.

Lord, help us to recognize and discern when people come into our life they are there to perfect us, because they are not perfect. You will make our way perfect. God, I thank you for perfecting in them and me, in the midst of our trials even when we cannot see. The Spirit of Holiness that dwell within me. Send fresh anointing as we make our way. Lord Jesus, have your way in this place today. Father God I thank you, glorify you, and magnify your name.

I pray this prayer, in Jesus name. Amen.

Whew…. Now I feel better! Praise the Lord.

Be blessed! –JD
