Flee from every appearance of evil and unto the Lord God, that Satan and his demons may no longer have any power over you.
Mark 5:18-20 (KJV)
18 And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.
19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
20 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.
Lord God, I know that the evil spirits that were cast out, by Your power, in Your day are still possessing people in our day also. Nothing has changed expect for the world getting more darker and people living in more sin than ever before. It is because people love darkness rather than Your light is why people are looking at pornography, sleeping around, doing drugs, drinking alcohol and such. For Lord, they have forgotten Your laws and only care about the lusts of the flesh. It surely is a dark world that we live in Lord. It seems that people have lost all desires to follow You. This is very disheartening. I know how destructive Satan can be and I wish that more people would see this before it is too late. Please come Lord and lead valiant men of God to these people of the world, that we may be prayed over and demons may be cast out at large. I know that we have a fight at hand, but I know that with You we can do all things. You give us the power to call out the evil one, that he may no longer torment the lost. And Lord, I pray that people will learn from their mistakes and give heed to You and Your commands, starting today. May they submit themselves to You, that every sin may be blotted out of their lives. You can heal everyone and this I ask, Lord. In Your Holy Name, Amen.
So Jesus and His disciples found themselves with a man in very rough shape. People tried to get him under control but no one could. Continue Reading
I will do anything for Jesus, including die for Him. For He is my Lord, my God, my everything.
There are religious people and then there are Christians who truly love the Lord. True believers also live out their faith.
Mark 3:3-5 (KJV)
3 And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.
4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.
5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
Oh Lord, I pray that every believer will simply leave the pride of their hearts at Your table. Help us all to be willing to leave our own intentions behind, in order to follow You and do Your will. I know that many times in our lives we get caught up with doing things that are not pleasing in Your sight. We may even fall into a religious system that is false, so we need Your guidance and direction. These things we need to know about, that we may stop doing them and turn from our wicked ways. Help us get out of the religious routine, that we may stay focused on You and Your will only. When religion becomes who we are, we often times become hard hearted and think we know better. For this reason Lord, break the barrier of pride. May every person that says they love You Lord, also obey You and not the will of men. We come unto You with our whole hearts, that You may usher into our lives Your love. Just as You showed compassion and kindness to everyone, help us to live that way also. May we learn to love everyone, as You love us, Lord. Help us come out of this world and into Your arms. We want to learn of You and be led by You always. You are our delight and we want more of You, Jesus. Amen.
Jesus knew the evil intentions of the Pharisees and did not approve of their murmurings, one to another. Continue Reading
Come unto Jesus and do His will. No matter what He has for you, know that it is more important than anything else you can do.
All believers in God that do His will are equal. A person that has been a Christian longer does not mean more blessings given.
Matthew 20:15,16 (KJV)
15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
Oh Lord, I pray everyone that says that they are Christian, will also step up and do Your will. May they no longer stand idly by while there is work to do in Your kingdom. We are all called to follow You after we come to faith, but not everybody listens. This is there sad choice and if nothing is done about this, You have taught me that there will also be no rewards in heaven or entrance also. For I know that You honor those that are truly are on Your side. You have called us into Your fold knowing that many will be called but few that listen. And with those that listen, some of them will only follow You for a time and then back out later. You have also helped me realize that many people will come to You later in their lives and then live out their faith to the fullest. I just pray that everyone that knows You, Jesus, will stay focused on serving You till the end. And may there be no complaining among those people that have been a believer longer than most. Instead, give these people a humble and a loving heart, that they may be able to welcome in the new believers and help them along the way. I know Lord that service in Your harvest is needed but laborers are few. This I also pray for. That more people will get involved, if it is evangelism, church service, and helping those in need. May our will be for You and no longer for things that do not save. Surely, only You can save us from hell and lead us to heaven. This I pray that more people will respond to Your guidance and direction. I love You Lord. Amen.
The Lord God calls every person to work in His vineyard. They will all then be given the same reward when all is set and done. Continue Reading
