My First Love! 

“” I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; ” and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not been weary. “Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. “Remember therefore from where you have fallen;  repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place – unless you repent.”” Revelations 2- 5

Dear Lord, do not remove my lampstand! Let me always be in your presence. Forgive me Lord of the errors of my ways! Do not cut me off with the wicked. Open my heart to love as at the beginning.

Let the light of your countenance seek me out and lead me back to my first love! You, Oh Lord, you are my hiding place, my refuge from the storm, my joy and hope, you are my first love Lord. It is in you that I live, breath and have my being.  You are my all in all!
Friends, will you repent today of all your sins? The sins that easily beset us. May we not be deceived by the deceitfulness of sin. May all distraction be put into perspective so we may see the wiles of the wicked and wage war accordingly.  

Oh Lord be merciful unto us and help us to do the first work, to love you whole heartedly and love our neighbors as ourself. Reconcile our confusion! Give us clarity! 

Lord, we want to operate from a place of love always, help us! Our spirit is willing, but our flesh is weak! Give us your strength Lord Jesus. 

You said your strength is made perfect in our weakness – 2 Corinthians 12:9, this Lord we believe, and are grateful. We take up your strength today, to do the needful, so the expected mayest manifest! 

We will do the first work by your grace Lord! Thank you for giving us another chance! Be magnified Oh Lord!

Repent today of your evil ways! The patience of God worketh Salvation 2 Peter 3:15

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Praising God In Difficult Situation!

Acts 16:25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose. 27 The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!”

inhabit praisePaul and Silas, having been stripped and beaten with rods, were severely flogged, and then thrown into prison, yet, they prayed and sang hymns unto God. How could they sing, I mean pray unto God who did not send a whirlwind to disperse their accuser? God left us to be humiliated, why should we sing hymns unto Him? This was not questions, not even a thought for these men. They were too far gone in their faith to consider such! “Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him; – Job 13:15 must have been the thought in their hearts. 

last-breath praiseFriends, how often do we encounter discouragement in our walk and we lose heart. We suffer for our own mistakes and deprive God of quality worship. May we not be replaced! Regardless of what is going on within and without friends, let us endeavor to pray and worship God, for He deserves it. Do you know that your worship in difficult circumstances is a reflection of the depth of your trust in the Lord? You will make a better witness, and produce a finer testimony than when in fair weather.

john-4_23When you pray and praise God in any situation, God moves, He steps into the situation, for He inhabit the praises of His people – Psalms 22:3.

Lord God Almighty, we praise and worship your holy name. Holy Spirit, help us to pray, praise and worship God in spirit and in truth. May we live daily to worship you in obedience and in reverence in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Changed Testimony? Be Unwavering!

Act 16:19 When her owners realized that their hope of making money was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to face the authorities. 20 They brought them before the magistrates and said, “These men are Jews, and are throwing our city into an uproar 21 by advocating customs unlawful for us Romans to accept or practice.”22 The crowd joined in the attack against Paul and Silas, and the magistrates ordered them to be stripped and beaten with rods.   23 After they had been severely flogged, they were thrown into prison, and the jailer was commanded to guard them carefully. 24 When he received these orders, he put them in the inner cell and fastened their feet in the stocks.

When you stand up friends for truth, what is right, justice, or any worthy cause be prepared for backlash. You are in the wicked territory!!!. He will roar at you but fear not, for Christ Jesus has overcome on your behalf. Blessed are you if you suffer for righteousness sake.

Friends, notice how swiftly the testimony changed. Paul and Silas were “servant of the Most High God, who are telling people the way to be saved” just a few moment before in Acts 16:17. Now they are “Jews, and are throwing our city into an uproar by advocating customs unlawful for us Romans to accept or practice” -Acts 16:20.  Things will be said of you contrary to the truth, please do not bother trying to explain, clarify, justify, or defend yourself. Leave that to your advocate to do. Remember everything hidden will one day come to light. Stay focused and on course!

1 Peter 3:13 Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? 14 But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.” 15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 16 keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. 17 For it is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. 18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.

Lord may we not lose heart as we run this race. May we be stirred up more and more to live for you. We receive grace today to obey your every word in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

 

 

 

Respond In Faith! Seize Your Kairos Moment!

Acts 16:13 On the Sabbath we went outside the city gate to the river, where we expected to find a place of prayer. We sat down and began to speak to the women who had gathered there. 14 One of those listening was a woman from the city of Thyatira  named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth.  She was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to respond to Paul’s message. 15 When she and the members of her household were baptized, she invited us to her home. “If you consider me a believer in the Lord,” she said, “come and stay at my house.” And she persuaded us.

This means Lydia already had a relationship with the Lord, for how else can she worship a God she does not know? She would not have been worshiping God if she did not know Him intimately, yet her heart was closed to greater revelations of the person of the Holy Spirit. In verse 14″ The Lord opened her heart to “respond” to Paul’s message.” This means she(Lydia) listened, heard, understood what was been said, she received it, and responded by acting on it by faithNote that it is possible to listen and not hear, so also to hear and not understand, yet understand and not receive – which means in this context to accept, and you can receive and not respond – which is taking commensurate action! May God help us to start acting on His word by faith.

How often do we rest on our oars as Christians, having been in the faith for a “long” time – emphasis here, that we are closed minded to fresh revelations in The Word. We fail to see the changing season and what the present demand of us, which invariably causes us to experience change on a continuum in order to see a desired future.

Lord God Almighty, thank you for your saving grace. Thank you Lord for sight, revelations, and understanding. Lord, I pray that your Holy Spirit will continue to open up our hearts to receive of you. Help us Father to seize our Kairos moment like the children of Issachar in 1 Chronicles 12:32 in Christ Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen

1 Chronicles 12:32 from Issachar, men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do—200 chiefs, with all their relatives under their command;

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Gratitude! An Act!

It does not matter what hand you think you have been dealth, God is good, and you are more blessed than you acknowledge.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
