Oh Lord, I pray for every lost person in this world. To those people that are living a burdensome life, they are so needful of Your love, God, and others also. If they just knew how merciful You really are, then all their confessions would be given to You in prayer. They would not hold back at all, but also the Bible also. Your teachings are what uplift us and help us carry on. Being in prayer and in Your Word daily helps our thoughts not get out of hand, for You are able to help us make the best decisions. So, without You leading us, there is no hope to be found that lasts. We can find it for a time, but that is only temporary. Even our lusts come at a price of falling deeper into sin and then having guilt and shame pile up in our lives. These are the types of things, Lord, that causes people to be depressed. Because they are not able to get over their addictions, they just want to give up. For these people, I pray for the welfare of their souls. May they find You Lord in their brokenness and trust in those people that truly love You and only want to share the love of Your gospel with them. And Lord, I know how hard it is to be happy when people are continuing to bully us and make us feel terrible inside with their hurtful words. Truly, Satan has a strong hold upon the wicked and their attacks are disheartening us in our weakest moments. It truly takes a lot of moments in prayer and just seeking You to get over this. I just pray that those that have also been affected by these people, that they don't give up on themselves. That they instead come to You with their burdens, that they may be light. Help people understand that killing themselves is never the answer. The real solution is coming to You, Lord, for new life. Only You can do this. I trust in You, Jesus. I love You. Amen.
Exodus 20:12,13 (KJV)
12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
13 Thou shalt not kill.
Jesus breaks every chain. Lives are healed from every sin and sickness through His great Name.
It is Jesus that gives me life. Because of Him and Him alone do I have hope and joy that never fails.
Now, does the Bible say anything about this topic? Well, of course it does, my friends. If you were reading the Bible daily, you would get so much strength from God’s Word and be able to fight these feelings of despair and doubt. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that we will all live this life fully for You. Surely, there are many obstacles in our paths, but with You at our side, we are able to be more than conquers. No temptation is able to cut through the armor that You place in our lives. Much like the building of your holy sanctuary, you are able to give us specific instructions and how to fulfil them. It is Your holy presence that gives us hope and helps us do things that we would not be able to do otherwise. I give You thanks for Your guidance and direction in my life. I would be helpless to do anything good, if Your light was not shining inside of me. I say this because my works are of no importance and good for others if You are not doing the work inside of me. What I need is more instructions from You, God, that I might live out a life of faith and love on people as You love on me. I love Your commands God, and the more I am taught, the better I am able to live my life. Therefore, I plead for the Holy Spirit in my life. I need that fire to give me the strength to carry on faithful to Your promises. Your ways are better for my life and everyone else. So I pray that all people will one day see this. May they be able to understand the joy I found in You and choose to follow You. I know how happy I have become, because of Your mercy and grace, and I wish everyone else could experience the same joy that I know and love for themselves. You are the supplier of our happiness and I wish to make that known to every person on earth. You are my guide and I will follow You. Lead me to the lost, that they may discover You for themselves and be saved. I love You God. Amen.
Revelation 11:19 (KJV)
19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
God's instructions may seem like a lot to take in sometimes, but when we just go out and obey Him, it all makes sense in the end.
The next part of God’s sanctuary was the courtyard, of which the altar was to be placed. This is the outer part of where the sanctuary stood. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that our faith in You will mean more than what we are making it now. So many people say they believe, but instead, they walk apart from You. There is no true faith in You, but faith in other things give them joy. Therefore, help them remember the day that they called upon Your name and were saved. May they never forget the joy they felt when they were walking in Your light. That is when their salvation began. Help them to not lose it, but endure in that faith. I know for a fact that my faith could be greater. I love You, but I could love You more through my actions, especially how I treat others. Only by seeking You daily can this type of love and kindness flow through me and into other people's lives. You have helped me realize how much I miss out on miss out when I continue doing my own things. It is when I am outside of Your, that I fall victim to sin and shame. I am so sorrowful when this happens and no matter how much I wish it never happened, I know that I cannot change the past. All I can do is reach back to You in faith and confess my sins. It is then my prayer that You would have mercy upon my soul and forgive me. Lord, I don't wish to do what is evil in Your sight, but always be guided by Your hand, that I might resist temptation. It is my prayer that I am kept strong and faithful, even until the end. You are my Lord and my Savior and I only wish to follow You. So I pray that You will lead me in Your light and abolish every form of darkness from my life. Look through my heart and cast out every wicked thing, that I might be made pure in Your sight. I say these things Lord, in Your holy Name, Jesus. Amen.
Revelation 3:5,6 (KJV)
5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Salvation begins when we have faith in Jesus Christ. It is also secured when we endure in our faith till the end.
The Bible is clear that there is a requirement for our lives, in order to be saved come death. That stipulation is for every believer in Christ to endure in their faith till the end. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that we will all get our lives in order, before our time expires. Truly, our lives go by way to fast and then it is over in an instant. It has been so hard, God, to see those I've loved pass on. Some of them have been saved by Your grace, but many others have not. This saddens my soul to think that people I've known and loved could be suffering in hell right now. For this reason do I not only live my life for You, but also warn my neighbor and especially those I love to find You, Jesus, for salvation. Your path is straight and narrow and leads to heaven. Every person needs to be on it and become born again in the Spirit, or else there is nothing left for them but pain and sorrow in hell. Your ways are secure and leads us from death and into heaven, where there is eternal joy. These other paths don't interest me anymore. I don't need temporary pleasure that is attached with guilt and shame. Your ways are higher and always lead me to joy without any compromises. And Lord, I give You the thanks for leading me. I would be lost forever, if You had not come into my life and rescued me. I needed a Savior and You responded to my prayers. Thank You for hearing me and having mercy upon me. My confessions were many, but Your compassion has no end. For this reason, I do not fear death, but only others that die outside the faith. My life is secure in Your blood, but others do not have this same security. Therefore, I wish that people would be awakened to follow You before it is too late. I do not wish to go to anymore funerals where I am weeping because of their bad choices. Instead, I'd rather weep for joy, because they are with You, Lord, in heaven. I love You God. My trust is in You. With all my heart do I praise You and worship You. Amen.
Luke 12:19-21 (KJV)
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
Prepare to meet God each day of your life. Do not put the day of repentance off. Your salvation could be on the line, come death.
Please understand that life is not guaranteed to last for anyone for anyone. Nothing we can do can guarantee that we will end up living in our late eighties. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that people will desire to be used by You and seek You out with their whole hearts. Help them to have a greater attention span to Your words of wisdom. No matter the length of the message, may the Spirit lead them to finish reading Your words, that they may grow in the faith. I see to many people on social media passing by the real meat of your messages for something simple to read, and this is very sad. These same people are missing out, Lord, on what You have put in our hearts to share with people. For every Christian that has real faith in You, it is impossible to summarize a real God given message to somebody in a few sentences. It is because the Spirit is leading us to write, as long as it takes to get the premise out there, we will write more. I don't want anything to be missing, especially if You are telling me to go onward in my writing. I also wish that You would supply those people that will read the devotions that are written. It is one thing to write what You have put in my heart, but another to see someone read the message and be blessed by it. This is truly hard to come by in our day, Lord. To many people have narrowed their focus on what is short and sweet, instead of what is longer and manifested in You. Because their hearts are set on being gratified by what they see instantly, they miss out on the best stuff that You have to offer them. This includes all of Your words in the Bible. A few verses here and there is nothing like doing a real study on different chapters at hand. It is this reason that I love to write on the Bible. Your words are a lamp unto my feet and I pray that it will also become this way to others in the faith also. Your ways are too good to be kept to myself. I love You Lord. You are the light that guides me. Amen.
John 15:1-4 (KJV)
1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
No longer be a fake Christian, but live out your faith in Christ. Give your whole mind over to the Lord, that you may be taught.
In response to what I just said above, people may say that they are not classified as fake. Just because they like to read what is short doesn’t mean they don’t believe in God or like reading the Bible. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that we will always be mindful of Your beautiful creation that is all around us. Help us to see the beauty in things and see how only You could create them. Just looking at the mountains, streams, trees, flowers, animals, fishes, insects, and especially humans, do I see You, God, in all these things. Nothing has more style and artistry then Your mighty hands. You made the best things for us to live on this earth and I am so grateful. All throughout time You have made an impression upon people that have lived. Thank You Lord for everything You have to offer us. We are so blessed when we can look past ourselves and just glance at our surroundings. I cannot take enough pictures of all the different colors in the mountains, lakes, streams, trees, leaves, shrubs and flowers. I am mesmerized by how beautifully made everything is every spring, summer, fall, and winter. These seasons surely describe how perfectly laid out everything is upon this earth. Your creations comes to life and then goes dormant at different times of the year. This would have taken a lot of thought in my mind, but for You is was made easy. You created all these things for our joy. Thank You Lord. I am sure that the sanctuary that You had Moses create was also as amazing. Saying that, God, I know that You can also do amazing things in our lives also. If we just listen to Your instructions, then we will be able to do things that are extraordinary in nature. This is because You are able to orchestrate Your will in our lives. For this, I am so grateful. I trust in You always. Amen.
Psalm 19:1,2 (KJV)
1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
Through God's hands there is so much beauty upon the earth. He also creates and does mighty things in our lives if we let Him.
God’s instructions continued with a vail. On the tabernacle of God was to be made “a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen of cunning work: with cherubims.” (Exodus 26:31) Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that people will remember You every day of their lives. May they no longer worship You one day a week, but each day live for You. I've seen enough people go to church, but during the week be someone entirely different. This is when I know that their time for You is dwindling. They may worship You and read Your Words in church, but outside of those walls, they are different. Because the Holy Spirit is not a part of their lives, they do what they will, instead of follow You. Oh, how I wish that people would see the danger they are in, while living this way in sin. They are trampling under their feet Your commands, while giving into the lusts of their flesh. This is only pulling them further away from You. Their desires for evil deeds is what is killing a real relationship with You in prayer. I know from experience how bad this really is and only wish the best for these people, by calling them to repentance. Lord, wake them up to their sins, that they may confess them openly to You. Humble them, that they may realize how far gone they really are without You, their Savior. Surely, our souls are at stake ,if we are not seeking You daily in prayer and reading the Bible. We have no compass to direct our paths when You are not leading us. And because sin has taken over our lives, the Spirit cannot dwell with us. For this reason Lord, convict us when we are wrong. I also pray that people will listen to You, as I have. There is so much joy and peace that comes from doing as You command. It is so good to go into church after having sought You throughout the week. Our time in fellowship with others, worshipping, and learning is that much better also. This is I pray that more people will know this also and live as You would lead them. I love You Lord. Amen.
John 14:15,16 (KJV)
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Don't just go to church and make a good impression there, but live out your faith in Christ Jesus, every day of your life.
To answer this question, you must first understand what it means to be saved. Jesus is our authority on this topic, and He said that unless a person is born of the Spirit they are not saved. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, how blessed I am to know that You are there for us. In the good times and bad, You are right by our side when we have faith. I am grateful that You answer us in prayer. How often do I know that Your presence is near, but it is so amazing to also know that You are listening to me and answering my prayers. There is nothing more powerful than Your mighty hand upon our lives. We can go through many different avenues seeking for help, but all these things are temporary, until we find eternal fulfillment in You. We can find temporary cures for different things in life, but all this is chance and none of it has a lasting effect on us like You do. Only Your healing hand can take every bit of sickness from our life. You are the one that make our life whole again. It does take great faith to be cured, but I know that this is necessary to have Your blessings in our lives. We cannot just be someone that says they believe in You, but do nothing about our faith. This type of faith is dead and needs to be awakened by You, oh God. So many people are slumbering and don’t even realize it. So I pray that You will awaken these people, in Your holy Name, Jesus. May they be lifted up in faith and desire to be prayed over. I also pray that people will confess their sins and be cleansed through Your blood, Jesus. Then, can they be born again in the Spirit and be led to pray for others also in need. You are our deliver and is simply waiting for people to showcase their faith and invoke Your Name in prayer. Then, can people of all ages be healed and miracles be witnessed. I trust in You, Lord. All the praise and glory to Your holy Name. I love You. Amen.
John 14:13,14 (KJV)
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
