Declaration Prayer

Dear Lord, let us discern for ourselves what is right; let us learn together what is good.

I use Your mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.

By Your power I demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of You, and take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

By Your divine power, thank You for giving me everything I need for living a godly life.

I have received all of this by coming to know You, the One Who called me to Yourself by means of Your marvelous glory and excellence.

I will discern and understand what really matters, so I may live pure and blameless until the day Jesus returns.

Inspired By: Job 34:4; 2 Corinthians 10:4-5; 2 Peter 1:3; Philippians 1:10.

Your Loss! Restored!

Jesus said, “Mark my words, no one who sacrifices house, brothers, sisters, mother, father, children, land—whatever—because of me and the Message will lose out.

They’ll get it all back, but multiplied many times in homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and land—but also in troubles. And then the bonus of eternal life!

This is once again the Great Reversal: Many who are first will end up last, and the last first.”

Your Parents! Seriously Care For Them!

Jesus answered, “Isaiah was right about frauds like you, hit the bull’s-eye in fact: These people make a big show of saying the right thing, but their heart isn’t in it.

They act like they are worshiping me, but they don’t mean it. They just use me as a cover for teaching whatever suits their fancy,

Ditching God’s command and taking up the latest fads.” He went on, “Well, good for you.

You get rid of God’s command so you won’t be inconvenienced in following the religious fashions!

Moses said, ‘Respect your father and mother,’ and, ‘Anyone denouncing father or mother should be killed.’

But you weasel out of that by saying that it’s perfectly acceptable to say to father or mother, ‘Gift! What I owed you I’ve given as a gift to God,’ thus relieving yourselves of obligation to father or mother.

You scratch out God’s Word and scrawl a whim in its place. You do a lot of things like this.”

Controlling Others Is Idolatry! = Witchcraft!

Control: Just Jesus Devotional
Control” as the world recognizes it, is a word not found in the Bible because God doesn’t use it. He doesn’t need to use force nor inflict His will on anyone. God is a Gentleman.

The devil uses control as force. This kind of control is rooted in fear and deceit. Even though God is in control, He does not exert control. He operates from a position of authority.

When you are in difficult circumstances, don’t ever believe the lie that the devil is in control. When you feel fear, wanting to control is a natural reaction.

Trying to control people or circumstances is idolatry. Don’t put yourself on God’s throne. Learn to let God’s love replace fear.

Use healthy self-control. Fear robs you of choice, but you have options. Being aware of your position of authority precipitates the power of choice.

Don’t try to control. Choose to use your God-given authority. You will feel strong and confident as you respond instead of react.

Memory Verse

“Allow it now, for this is the fitting way for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Matthew 3:15.

Eyes of Faith! Perspective!

That wonderful dream you have friends, will come to pass at the appointed time. The visions like that of Joseph, Daniel and Jeremiah that you have will and must be fulfilled for the Lord gave it to you. His mouth spoke it and His mighty hands shall fulfill it. You just need to do your part by believing and working in sync with the divine purpose for your life steps after steps. Be tenacious also in the place of prayers!

Radiant Glory Of Love

Hebrew 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Looking through the scriptures, you my friends must have noticed that everyone that received from the Lord believed that He was able to deliver what He promised. It is faith in the capability of the Lord that will keep us in the place of prayer, service, and total surrender to the Will of the Most High. The Lord is faithful in all His ways. If He promised, He will bring it to pass. He is the Almighty Sovereign God, He knows everything before you and I ever dreamt of it. So relax!!!!

True Self! Be Authentic!

By this time the crowd, unwieldy and stepping on each other’s toes, numbered into the thousands.

But Jesus’ primary concern was his disciples. He said to them, “Watch yourselves carefully so you don’t get contaminated with Pharisee yeast, Pharisee phoniness.

You can’t keep your true self hidden forever; before long you’ll be exposed. You can’t hide behind a religious mask forever; sooner or later the mask will slip and your true face will be known.

You can’t whisper one thing in private and preach the opposite in public; the day’s coming when those whispers will be repeated all over town.
