“I am allergic to hypocrisy, disrespect, and slanderous tongues! Distancing from the source prevents allergic reaction!” ~JoanDebo
Father, many a time I have engaged in the unfruitful works of darkness, please be merciful unto me and forgive me in Jesus name!
I did engaged in gossip and slander, this tongue said many things that shouldn’t have been uttered!
I saw evil and embraced it! Forgive me Lord! I confess and ask for mercy! Help me Lord to bridle this tongue, let it only speak the words that sustains the weary! Let my soul be kept away from corruption!
Keep me away from temptation I ask in Jesus Christ Mighty name. Amen
This is food for thought for the seekers! The Void in every soul can ONLY be filled up in Christ Jesus!
An excerpt from Recapture The Wonder by Ravi Zacharias
“Wretchedness and failure understandably breed cynicism. Power and beauty, we assume, bring contentment. One has lost all hope for what he would make of his life; the other has attained the ideal. But the question emerges, Has he really? On the surface it would appear to be true. Yet I have my doubts.”
In Him was life, and that life was the light of ALL mankind – John 1:4
I know the Word was Christ – John 1:1, and He was life, and that life was and is the LIGHT of ALL mankind!
This tells me that everyman on the face of this earth has life, that life is light which is Christ!
You just need to acknowledge what is already in you! Christ in you! Christ is life, He is light!, Acknowledge Him!
Father, I acknowledge you as my creator, my Saviour, my life, my light, my lover, my redeemer, my hope and joy, Lord, you are my high tower that I run to, you are my shield and buckler, my provider, my sustainer, my everything!
Thank you for this insight, for the many trials, pain, shame, reproach, and the many heartaches, Lord, I am grateful for all that you permitted in my life for my greater good! I love you Lord!
I am acknowledging you as The Sovereign God! You are in charge of my life, the life you blessed me with!
Oh Lord, thank you for the many joys you fill my soul with, thank you for the many blessings, successes too numerous to mention, Daddy, I acknowledge your mighty hand that is upon me, thank you Lord!
Friends, can you see the Lord in the midst of you? He is there! See the mighty hand of God upholding you when you’d rather give up! See the many misses, the lows and the highs you’ve been through?
I just want you to take a break and acknowledge God for who He is in your life, in the midst of that difficulty, He showed up, and He is showing up, and will continue to show up for you!
Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!! No doubt 2020 came with different kinds of unexpected issues and occurrences, yet we all triumphed and are better for it!
We learnt valuable lessons and are appreciative of the “simple things of life”, for we seem to have found out that those simple things are really the important things in life.
Well, this new year will be somehow different in that we have learnt a new way of being. We will all be just fine!
I am going to practice gratitude in all and every situation believing that God is Sovereign and will send just what He knows I can handle my way – 1 Corinthians 10:13. That is His promise! I believe it! So should you!
My expectation shall not be cut off this much I know! – Proverbs 23:18
Therefore, this new year, I will be looking out for a new kind of glory, honor, favor, joy, peace, contentment, advancement, increase, restoration, victory, goodness, mercy, and much more of all that pertains to life and godliness every waking hour!
Surely God’s goodness and love will follow me and you all the days of our life, and WE will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalms 23:6
What is governing my mind? What is governing yours friends? We do need to examine ourselves regularly so we are not deceived by the deceitfulness of sin.
It is so easy to be carried away with activities that nourish our flesh, our ego, while neglecting the concerns of God, his people, and choice possession.
Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation – but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die? But if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body you will live. 14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. Romans 8:12-14
We must live and breathe to please God by faith. A heart governed by the Spirit is not about self-aggrandizement but humble, modest, and selfless!
Father, you are our center, our hedges, boundaries, our all! Let us reduce that Christ may increase in us I pray in Jesus mighty name Amen.
