Prayers of the Heart …

The prayer of my heart this morning was …. It is my desire to love you more.

It is my desire to love you.

If there is anything that will keep me from you …then I do not want it

If my name being known keeps me from spending time with you …. then I do not want it

If the money, houses and cars make me forget you …. then I do not want it

I posture my heart before you

and on the altar of my heart I lay my

will, my plans, my desires, my thoughts, my fears and insecurities

Send your fire your Lord…

to burn them away

Replace them with your will, with your plans, with your desires

Replace them with your thoughts

Replace my thoughts of myself with the thoughts you have toward me

Keep me in a place of longing for you

Keep a conviction and void until I spend my time with you

until I hear your voice.

For my desire is to hear you, to speak with you.

Speak Lord for your servant is listening.

I’ll Show You …..

Faith and Deeds

14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”

Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.”

 

It is easy for people to say “I have faith, I know He will do it”  and then they return home to their sofa to twiddle their thumbs and wait for the promise.

Well, while that is ok to some extent that you have faith to say that with or without you God can do what he wants…

God wants to see that we really believe we do this by showing Him our faith in Him by our deeds.

Faith without works is dead.

God promised you financial increase in this season?

Great!

Show Him you believe by your deeds …

Sit down and write out those expenses, see what you have coming in and going. Make yourself a wise steward over the little so when the increase comes you won’t be foolish in handling it.

He promised to make you the head and not the tail, then show Him now that you believe in His promise that He will complete that perfect work in you by walking in it.

Declare over yourself God’s greatness, don’t walk as a double-minded man but let your “yes” be a “yes” and your “no” be a “no”.

God loves deeds that are influenced by faith.   

That not only says

“God I trust your going to do it”

but it also says

“God here is what I am going to do to show that you I know you are going to do what you said”

and He will most definitely honor it.

God says today, “He finds it pleasing, it is a sweet aroma to Him to see His children who believe and are inspired enough to act out the fulfilled ahead of time!”

 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”

Give God something to honor on today and show Him that you believe.

 

  

Faith and Deeds (scripture continued) …..

14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”

Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.

20 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless[d]? 21 Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. 23 And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,”[e] and he was called God’s friend. 24 You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.

25 In the same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for what she did when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different direction? 26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.

 


Tap into Greatness….

Philippians 1:6

King James Version (KJV)

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ

Jeremiah tells us that all of God’s thoughts towards us are good and none of evil to give a hope and a future and an expected end. The book of Peter also tells us to think it not strange the fiery trials that come to try you as though some strange thing is happening.  The book of James tells us to consider it pure joy whenever we face trails because the testing of our faith produces perseverance.

When we face trails often times we forget just what the word tells us to do. When we face uncertain situations, hopeless situations and bleak outcomes we tend to forget who we are. We forget promises made to us, we forget who God is and all that He can do.

We then find ourselves acting out of anger and fear, we no longer seek God’s peace and sovereignty. Instead we begin to lean unto our own understanding.

I had a situation only an hour ago that brought me (so quickly) to my wit’s end. I found myself upset and in tears fussing at everything and everyone. I found myself on the phone ready to give a piece of my mind. I was ready to throw in the towel and walk away… and over what?

A trail that only came to test me.

A trail that only came to test my faith and produce perseverance.

A reminder from my Father, that there is greater in me.

A reminder that He has given me hope and future and an expected end.

Instead of continuing in my anger and quickly approaching  wrath. I decided to remember all of God’s promises for me and my family. I began to tap into that “greatness” He placed on the inside of me and use the mind of Christ He that He told me that I had.

I implore you today to do likewise.

Do not allow outside influences and circumstances dictate you. Take a hold of that which has been promised to you before you were formed in your mother’s womb. It doesn’t matter what you go through now, or who hurt you, who you owe, what you don’t have…

Know that your present sufferings DO NOT compare to the glory that is to be revealed.

Tap into your greatness today and trust God.

God Bless and Happy Blogging


Random Post …

I am laughing at myself … because as much as I talk and as much as I love to talk … I am learning how to articulate what I feel.

Articualtion is important .

LOL, I also believe when you read the word you get new revelation and God teaches you big words too #comeasachild

and I get so excited when I say them not knowing if it is really a word .. and I look it up and it is.

John 14:26

26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

I dare you to take God at his word today.


Matthew 7:14 ….

Matthew 7:14

” …But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it”


Today’s Scriputre … from Joel and Victoria Osteen

I received this from daily scripture/daily inspiration from my co-worker. This is nothing but a confirmaton of things that God is doing in this season. I pray we all give God a “Yes” in this season … whether we are in the same season in our lives or not … no matter what … we must give God a complete and total “Yes” .

What is awesome about God is that we can be seated between four different people and we can all be in different seasons in our lives at the same time … and God is still there working in and through them all.

We serve a Great and Faithful God.

So Enjoy …

P.S .. Don’t you just love Joel Osteen … he smiles all the time. I just love it LOL

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” 2Corinthians 1:20 NKJV

TODAY’S WORD

From Joel and Victoria  

When God laid out the plan for your life, He lined up the right people, the right breaks and the right open doors. In other words, He already had your “yeses” planned out — Yes, you can accomplish your dreams. Yes, you can overcome that obstacle. Yes, your children can fulfill their destiny. Yes you can succeed. YES is in your future!

  The question is, are you going to say “yes” to God’s “yes”? Are you going to dare to believe Him — to get into agreement with His promises?

Start right now by declaring His promises over your life. Start declaring that He is good and that His plan will come to pass. Don’t let doubt and discouragement distract you keep your eyes fixed on Him because He is faithful. His promises are always yes and amen. So say “yes” to His “yes”!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father, today I say “yes” to You. I say “yes” to Your promises and “yes” to Your ways. Help me to live a life pleasing to You and bring You glory in all that I say and do, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

— Joel & Victoria Osteen


Daily Inspiration …

A Daily Inspiration sent to me …. I pray it encourages you as it did me!

God Bless

 

May The Lord of Peace Give You Peace

 

“Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in all
ways.”  2 Thessalonians 3:16

Daily Express: The Bible talks about the peace that passes understanding.  This is a God-given peace
in the midst of difficulty.  It is a spirituality that gives you a depth of bliss
in the middle of your problem.

 
Your life is not defined by outer circumstances.  Your life is defined by what you feel inside
of yourself every moment.  When you are connected with God fully in your awareness you feel
burdens lifted from you, and you feel a profound peace.  You can feel profound peace
from God even in the presence of challenges. 

This is a week to manifest the full peace of God in our minds and in our
hearts.

Life so filled with joy, song, and laughter, but there are still hearts
that are burdened, and heavy today.  Every day, I talk with people by
who are hurting. Some people face challenges that are so difficult,
like those affected by major storm Sandy on the east coast of America. 

Some people are facing life-threatening health challenges. 
Many are dealing with the effects of trying to make ends meet after losing employment. 
In the prayer ministry of Positive Christianity, we have many prayer requests
from those needing comfort and strength.

God can bring comfort, and peace even in situations where it seems like it
would be impossible to be found.  God can bring strength to allow the praying person
to stand up to any difficulty.

God can provide guidance to maneuver us through a confusing maze, to the desired
answered prayer.

As we pray for peace and uplifting, we remember these words: “Now may our
Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God our father… comfort your hearts and
ESTABLISH them in every good work and word.”

What does it mean to be established in God’s good?  It means the same
thing as when we say that a certain person is established in the
community, or a business is established, and viewed with respect.

When you are established in God, you are established in God’s heart, which
is peaceful at all times and in all circumstances.  You are established in
health that is not temporal, but permanent.  You are established in joy not
because of what is happening outside of you, but because of what is
happening inside of you.  In your work life, you are established in good lasting
work.  God uses the words of your mouth, establishing in you, a vocabulary
and a tone of voice that will minister to others, and bring peace to them.

Even as we in Positive Christianity pray for our friends and send them
encouraging, constructive words to affirm in prayer, we also behold them
filling their time and their world, with “good works.”  These good works
can consist of any way they may find to enter into life in a more peaceful way.

If you know of a need of comfort and strength in another, the prayer of
your love-filled heart can unfold them and help them invest their awareness
in the present prayer moment and find in it the lasting blessing of God’s peace.

POSITIVE DAILY PRAYER:

Dear God, I pray today that I am established in your peace.  I pray that I
am established in the harmony and the melody of the universe.  I pray that
I am established in smiles and laughter and true soul enjoyment.  I pray
that I am established in comfort and in strength.

I pray that my mind is established in Your peace.  I am praying that my
employment is established in God’s good works.  I pray that the words of
my mouth are established in God’s word.  I pray that I am established in
following and believing God’s word about my life and about my dear one’s
lives.

God, in areas that I may not even be aware of, I ask You to bring your
establishment of perfect peace, balance, and order into my life.  And dear God,
establish my life in Your love, so I may express it to all.

In Jesus Christ’s name…Amen

POSITIVE DAILY AFFIRMATION: The healing power of God restores me. 
My mind and body are peaceful and whole.

POSITIVE DAILY QUOTE: “You must be the change you hope to see in the world.” 
Mahatma Gandhi

God bless you!!
