Oh Lord, I pray that people would learn to love Your counsel and no longer disregard it. There is so much worth in giving an ear to what You have to say and then heed it. I have been lifted up each time that I resist temptation and instead give heed to Your warnings. In these moments have I been protected from the enemy and true peace has entered my life. It doesn't matter the type of things that the flesh desires, if it isn't appealing to You, oh God, then I also hate it. I have learned that following in Your light is far better than living in darkness. It is not worth a life of guilt and shame for temporary satisfaction, when I can have Your joy in my life that never ends. Your happiness is far better than being satisfied in the form of addictions or other wicked things. Therefore, Lord, protect me from every form of temptation. Help me see what is bad for evil and good for what is right. I know that while I seek You out in Your words in the Bible, and pray often, will my mind be focused on the truth of all things. This way I don’t have to wonder if what I am doing is right or wrong, for You have me by the hand and are leading me in the ways of righteousness. In all things Lord, I wish for every barrier to be broken. Tear down every wall. I don't want myself or any person or thing to come between You and Your great love in my life. You mean more to me than all things. Because I am Your child, Your warnings speak volumes to my life. It is an honor to heed these warnings and then do as You have directed me. If I have done anything recently or in the past that I have not repented of, know that I am sorry and need Your forgiveness. Take my life and allow Your good works to shine forth. I love You Lord. Amen.
Exodus 10:16-20 (KJV)
16 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, I have sinned against the Lord your God, and against you.
17 Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once, and intreat the Lord your God, that he may take away from me this death only.
18 And he went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the Lord.
19 And the Lord turned a mighty strong west wind, which took away the locusts, and cast them into the Red sea; there remained not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt.
20 But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.
Don't resist God any longer because of your sinful lifestyle, but confess your sins openly to Him that true change may occur.
Along with the story of the Pharaoh in the Bible, there are many other warnings from God now that speak to our lives. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that people's hearts will no longer be hardened against You. I know that many people know of Your will for their lives, but have instead resisted it because of their sinful lifestyle. They have not chosen to forfeit the things that You hate and give their heart to You. This is very sad to see this, especially when many of these people proclaim to be Christians. I wish that they would live out what they believe in, but instead, it is only words to them and no action at all. Their faith is meaningless since Your light is not in their lives. Lord, I wish that people would know the urgency of following You. Our time is short in this life and if we don’t make time for You, then other things will become our idols. Surely, dancing around our calling in life is only making a mockery of what You would have for our lives. Every person in Your kingdom is called to be Your child for a reason, and what people are doing is not deserving of being Your child at all. Because these people have a lack of humility and do not desire to give up things that are holding them back, shame and regret will continue to plague their lives. This I know Lord, will cause a barrier between them and You, for the rest of their lives, lest they repent of their sins. A turning unto You in their confessions and following You is necessary for salvation. Thank You for teaching me this principal. I pray that every person that desires to go to heaven will understand this and do what is necessary to be saved. I love You Lord. Nothing is better than following You and obeying Your commands for my life. I love Your ways and can never get enough it. Thank You for leading me safely home. Amen.
Exodus 9:27-30 (KJV)
27 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the Lord is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
28 Intreat the Lord (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.
29 And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the Lord; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the Lord’s.
30 But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the Lord God.
Choosing a sinful lifestyle also has health issues, pain, shame and regret attached to it. It is not worth fighting against God.
It is true that when we fight against God, then there are consequences to our actions. There will be pain and sorrow throughout that person’s life. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that people will no longer suffer because of sin and the strongholds of the devil. He may have a hold of them now, but all this can be broken, as You come into their lives and set the lost souls free. As I've learned, it only takes a humble heart to become brand new, even overnight, because of Your mighty power. We may be weak to the things of the flesh, but in Your Spirit we are made strong to deflect the temptations of the evil one. What once had power over us is of the past, as long as we continue to seek You and do Your will. Every chain of addiction is broken, as lives that were once lost due to pornography, homosexuality, fornication, adultery, drinking and drugs, are no more. As You have put in me a clean heart, every person that once was wicked is purified in Your blood. Thank You Jesus for rescuing me and all the other lost souls that have made rest in Your presence. I had no way out of this darkness, but your light came over me and gave me hope. I have a new direction to follow, because of Your Words in the Bible and my prayer time with You, God. My sights have been set upon Your will and nothing else is able to come before it. Thank You for Your counsel, for I truly need it, in order to be on Your righteous path and be set apart from the world. It is not my desire to fit in with the people of this world but to stand apart. I wish to raise Your light, that all may know You, Lord, the one true God of the heavens and the earth. I pray that people of all ages will repent and give their lives to You, starting today. Then, will less people be condemned to hell and more people be blessed to go to heaven. This is my prayer Lord. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
Exodus 8:8-10 (KJV)
8 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Intreat the Lord, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto the Lord.
9 And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only?
10 And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the Lord our God.
Satan has a stronghold upon the wicked. However, this does not have to be the case as Jesus will break every chain.
In the story of Moses, the magicians tried to mimic all of God’s plagues upon the Egyptian people, however, it came to a point where they knew that it was God’s hand working these plagues. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that people of all the earth will make a choice, starting today, to serve You. Will they finally open their hearts and come unto You, who is mighty to Save, or harden their hearts and be denied their salvation? The choice is there's. I just pray that people will be humble enough to remember what they have heard and have been taught over the years and seek the God of the living. There is true freedom that comes from letting go of our pride and following You. The same can be said for unbelievers and those that say they believe now. Yes, God, I know that many people that say they are Christian only say this in words and not in deeds. Their lifestyle is far from You, which makes them a hypocrite. So come and wake these people up too from their slumber. If they truly desire salvation, then will they take a step forward in faith? You have the power to break them free of all their addictions that hang over their heads. No temptation is stronger than the shield You can put in ever person's life that trusts in You. As You have spoken, Lord, the Savior has come in Christ Jesus. Deliverance is ready for everyone that believes in You for salvation. No longer do we have to wonder when life will get better, for time is now for the greatest joy of all to enter our lives. Your love is ready to spring forth into every person that obeys Your words. And I know, Lord, that doing as You have taught me is the most important thing to do in life. Where else can I find happiness that never ends. I am strengthened daily through Your words and in prayer. I love Your ways. I want more of You and less of me God. I love You more. I trust in You for salvation. Amen.
Exodus 7:3-5 (KJV)
3 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.
4 But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay my hand upon Egypt, and bring forth mine armies, and my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.
5 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.
If you are on the Lord's side, then you have been delivered from the enemy. All others are in bondage and under God's wrath.
The first plague that God had Moses and Aaron perform, in front of Pharaoh, was turning the water into blood. Continue Reading
