Lord, I come to You in humility, this day. Just as You came into this world and was born in the lowest of circumstances, in a barn, I come to You, knowing that I am nothing without You. Nothing this world offers can substantiate the love that You give me. Only Your love can breathe life into my soul. I am sick of the tricks that this world plays on me and want Your peace to ever fill my life. I know that what the world offers does not last and all its happiness and joy fades away fast. Most of it has left me with heartache and shame. I do not wish to fall into a state of depression because of these things and need Your peace to come over me, that I might stand up strong. You give me strength that I don't have otherwise. Each time I seek You for wisdom and knowledge, You answer my prayers and I have direction. Because You are in my life, I have a purpose. I am important because Your blood has covered me and I am redeemed. Because of Your mercy, all that shame has been turned into peace and love. Your grace has assured me that I am going places in this life and the next. And Lord, I do wish to always be with You. Even when I pass on from this life I wish to embrace You Lord and thank You in person for all You have done for me. I praise You and rejoice in Your holy Name. I love You so much. Amen.
So let us refocus our attention on Jesus, and read more about His glorious birth, this Christmas season. Continue Reading
Luke 1:46-48 (KJV)
46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
48 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
Come and rejoice in the Lord, our God. Give praise to Jesus, our Savior. For He has come to save us from our sins.
Lord God, I am amazed at what the Holy Spirit can have us say and do. Even without the foreknowledge of things, You make it known unto us, if we are seeking Your hand. You fill our mouths with words to speak. Just as the Holy Spirit was poured into Elizabeth and Mary, at Your birth, I am grateful that You have poured into my life. When they were filled, they knew of Your coming and Your mission. And what amazes me is that they did not exalt themselves but You. It was always You that they lifted up. I know that when I lift myself up in pride, it is not Your hand. This helps me take a step back and look to You again in faith. I love Your presence Lord and want more of You. So come into my life with full force and fill me up, this day. There is nothing life You, God. You are holy and righteous. You are the chosen Messiah and King of the Jews. Your kingdom is not of this world and I am grateful to be a part of it. You are my King and my Savior. Only Your blood could cover my sins. For great was my wickedness but Your mercy has washed me clean. Only You, God, could do such a healing like this. Your miracles have shaped me into the person I am today. I am so happy and it is because of You. I owe all to You, Lord. I praise You and lift you up high. You are worthy and I honor You above all things. I love You Lord. Amen.
After arriving at Elizabeth’s place, in the “city of Juda”, she “saluted Elisabeth” to get her attention. Then, after hearing her greeting, “the babe leaped in her womb.” Continue Reading
Ephesians 6:10,11 (KJV)
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Oh how I love the Lord. My heart is full of praise and it is all for the Lord Jesus, whom I love and adore. I rejoice just to know Him.
I am Yours, Lord. Have Your way inside of me. There is no other place I’d rather be, than to be in Your presence.
I am Yours, Lord. Have Your way inside of me. There is no other place I’d rather be, than to be in Your presence. You bring safety and security to my life. I am no longer walking with shame but courage that You bring to my life. I am ever able to do what is right, for You are my guide. It is when I do not do my part is when I make bad decisions that I regret. You are my safety net, but without You, I am left swimming upstream and have no way out. Lead me from temptation that I may be strong to resist. Build me up in Your armor that my faith will be grow stronger each day. You are my rock and my fortress, nothing can take me down with You in my life. All the darkness is scattered with Your light. The blindness has been taken from my eyes, that I may see the darkness of this world and no longer be a partaker of its wickedness. You have led me on a path of righteousness and I do not wish to quench the Spirit that is in me. So keep me sober and always looking to You in faith. And to those that are coming around to You now, may they be fully changed and brought into Your fold today. Help them find other Christians that will help them throughout their lives. But in all things, may they look to You for knowledge and guidance. Your words in the Bible are a lamp unto my feet and I know that anyone that truly reads Your words will find wisdom and know the way. And may they pray always and never allow the Spirit to leave them. It is priceless and something I never wish to lose. I love You Lord. You are the way and I will seek You all the days of my life. Amen.
If there was one thing I wish all the world could know is that Jesus can change their lives. They may think that they don’t need Him, for they are content with what they know and have, but they are wrong. Continue Reading
When we do not believe in the Lord, there are consequences. However, when we come back to God, our blessings return.
Luke 1:67-69 (KJV)
67 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,
68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,
69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;
Lord God, I am so grateful to have You in my life. I know that for many years that I chose to live apart from You and am sorry. I regret those days and am so grateful for Your mercy. Thank You for taking a wretched person, such as I, back into Your fold. I am amazed at Your great love and compassion for my life. I do not deserve the things You've done for me and still do for me. Surely, You could have given up on me a long time ago but instead You were patient and waited till the right time to move into my life. I may have wasted many years to serve You but the time I have with You now, I cherish. Thank You for coming into my life and delivering unto me the Spirit of God. You have filled me with a wild fire and now I want everyone to hear my story amd come to know You, Jesus. I pray that others do know that there is still hope for them. May they come to know that You are reaching out for them as You've reached for me, all these years. Just like I was, many people are stubborn but I still have hope in them. I know that their will come a time when many people will reach out to You, Lord. I just pray that they don't lose that hope but continue in the faith. Our faith In You saves us. May I never lose that hope and trust in You, God. I love You. Amen.
At the time of John’s birth, the immediate family were in the room and wanted to call the baby Zacharias but Elizabeth said no, and that his name would be John. Continue Reading
Isaiah 40:28,29 (KJV)
28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
