Why Would You Question God's Love? (2.9.16)

My Child, 
Why do you wonder if I love you, or if I’m still with you?
I loved you before you were born.
Before you took your first breath,
I was with you and My love surrounded you.

I loved you when you walked down the roads that were of Me and I loved you when you made a wrong turn. I lovingly took your hand and led you back on to the path of salvation. In the midst of the doubts that you have, I love you even more.

You’ve allowed your mistakes to affect what you know to be true. Don’t think anymore about the past or mistakes you have made in the past. What is done is done. Embrace My love and know that I love you.

My child, the love I have for you will open many doors.

This is a new season beloved, My love, My grace,
and mercy have brought about this change in your life.

I will never leave you nor forsake you.

Read and Meditate on His Word:
John 3:16 - For GOD so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 

Hebrews 13:5 - Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

A Confident Overcomer's Faith Prayer (2.8.16)


Father,
Your Word says that I am an overcomer because of the blood of the Lamb our Lord Jesus Christ.
Your Word says that I have been given authority over every spiritual power that the enemy will send my way!
I confess that I do not feel like an overcomer sometimes and often give in to the influence of this world instead of submitting to Christ.

O GOD, save me from myself! May I be full of Your Spirit and Your mighty power, the power of the resurrection!  Thank You Father, that, because I belong to You, in Christ Jesus, You surround me with Your presence and You have resurrected a wall of fire around me.

You, O Lord, are my refuge and my strength. In every situation and struggle, You are with me. I will not be afraid for my trust is in Your Name. Like Joshua, may I be confident that You are with me - and will never leave or forsake me. With Your Spirit being at work in me, please make me strong and courageous, and not afraid or discouraged; but always mindful that You are with me wherever I go.

Use me to take back all ground that the enemy has stolen.
Help me to have self-control and to be alert, knowing that
the enemy of my soul is prowling,
looking for an opportune moment to strike.
In Jesus’ name, strengthen me to submit to You while
resisting the enemy, so that I can stand firm in my faith
never wavering!

May I be full of faith and full of Your Word for I belong to You,
Lord Jesus for You have overcome the world!

Amen

It's Always Darkest Just Before the Break of Day. Start Rejoicing! (2.7.16)

Joshua 21:45 - Not a single one of all the good promises the LORD had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came true.

Faith Believers,
All of us have waited upon the Lord to bring about the things He has promised. 
During the times of waiting on the Lord, you may feel it will never come to pass. 
I bring good news to you, when GOD says something, He will deliver on His Word. 
His Word cannot return to Him void.  


When the Lord utters a promise, He never go back on His Word. 
Has He promised something that He can’t fulfill? 
Has He spoken something that He does not intend to do?
I DON’T THINK SO!! 
He never changes, and His Word remains the same from generation to generation.

Sometimes when the Lord promises us something - the cares and situations of this world will cause our vision to fade and cloud our thinking.  We begin to think that our vision will never come to pass, or maybe it wasn’t the Lord's voice we heard. You see the enemy will trigger that battle in your mind so you will give up on your promise, and allow doubt and unbelief to take over.  GOD is not a liar.  


It may not look like what we think it should look like,
but He will bring to pass all that He has promised.  

He will bring it to pass and it will be better than we could have ever imagined. You may go through some birthing pains along the way, but it's only to let you know that the promise is on the way.  It is always darkest just before the break of day.  GOD is so true to His Word.  So start rejoicing!  You will not be disappointed.  

Do not become weary now because you've come too far; you are almost there! Wherever you are in your walk with the Lord, remember He will accomplish all that concerns you; but it will be done in His timing, not ours.  For He knows what is best for us, for all things work together for our good.  

He is guiding you into the place He has destined for you, 
and you will arrive on time.

Whatever you are going through remember GOD know all about your struggles, and He cares.  If you are in a tough situation, He will use that very situation to teach you more about Him and His ways.  Because you will need that wisdom to help you in the new place He is moving you into.  Don’t fight it, embrace it!   


Right now, GOD is turning every strategy of the enemy 
into a blessing for His glory. OH PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME!

The enemy may try to keep you focused on what is happening to you in the natural, and he will try to make you believe it’s all over for you however, I am I here to tell you - GOD will accomplish what He has promised you, and it's NOT OVER UNTIL GOD SAY IT’S OVER.  


THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING! GOD has great things in store for you and He knows how to get you there. So, be encouraged this day and never give up on GOD.  He hasn't given up on you!

GOD IS FAITHFUL!!!

 
Read and Meditate on His Word:
Hebrews 10:23 - Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

1 Thessalonians 5:24
- GOD will make this happen, for he who calls you is faithful.

Romans 11:29 - For the gifts and calling of GOD are without repentance.
 
Remember this, there is nothing you will face today
that the Lord can't see you through.

A Blessing & Thankfulness Prayer (2.5.16)

Faith Believers,
Please take a moment to relax your mind and humble your heart to focus on Christ. Allow GOD, to be the only person on your mind while you read this prayer. If we can take the time to read long jokes, stories, etc., we should give the same respect to this prayer.

Friends that pray together, stay together.
  - Marilyn


 
Dear Lord,
I thank You for this day.
I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning.

I'm blessed because You are a forgiving GOD and an understanding GOD. You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me. Forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you.

I ask now for Your forgiveness.
 
Please keep me safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.

Please broaden my mind that I can accept all things.

Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over. Let me continue to see sin through GOD's eyes and acknowledge it as evil. And when I sin, let me repent, and confess with my mouth my wrongdoing, and receive the forgiveness of GOD. And when this world closes in on me, let me remember Jesus' example to slip away and find a quiet place to pray. It's the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits. I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart.

Continue to use me to do Your will.
 
Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others.
Keep me strong that I may help the weak.
Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others.
I pray for those that are lost and can't find their way.
I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood.
I pray for those who don't know You intimately.
I pray for those that will delete this without sharing it with others.
 
I pray for those that don't believe. But I thank you that I believe. I believe that GOD changes people and GOD changes things. I pray for all my sisters and brothers. For each and every family member in their households. I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes that they are out of debt and all their needs are met.
 
I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than GOD. 

Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight, Father God.
I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye
that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly.


This is my prayer,
In Jesus' name
Amen

A "Patience in the Workplace" Prayer (2.4.16)

Dear Heavenly Father,
Lord, I pray that you will help me to be patient with my co-workers that defile Your Name every single day.  

Lord, I pray that You will soften their hearts to receive the message of Your Son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  I cannot stand hearing them speak Your Name in vain, Father. Father touch their hearts and tongues, so that each time profane language proceeds out of their mouth, that the Holy Spirit will make them aware of their words. 

I know Father this type of talk grieves your Spirit, because this is surely the work of the enemy. Help me to remind them that You love them and You do not wish that they should perish because of the foul words they speak. 

Your Word tells us that we will be held accountable for every word that proceeds out of our mouth, whether good or bad. So Father I pray, that You will fill me with overwhelming joy so that I can sustain the depravity that is before me.  

You are amazing, Father - for being patient for as long as You have, with all mankind.  Father, allow me to be patient with every person I come into contact with today who prefers to use profanity as their choice for communicating. Help me to share the word of GOD with them so that they will not perish because of this sin.  

You are worthy of all praise GOD!  
In the name of your son Jesus Christ, I pray this prayer. 
Amen

What You Think is a Delay, is Patience Doing a Perfect Work in Your Life (2.3.16)

My Child, 
I understand what you are going through,
and how hard it is for you to wait. 

You want Me to move right now upon your situation.  


Because you don’t see any results, and nothing has changed, you think I haven’t heard your prayer. From the moment you prayed, and set your face like a flint to receive from Me, your prayer was answered. What you think is a delay, is patience doing a perfect work in your life.  While patience is working, do not take matters into your own hands and try to force things to happen. Just begin to praise Me, and see that which you have asked for, coming to pass in your life.

You may not understand what you are going through,
or why it is happening to you.  It is not for you to understand.  

However, it is for you to trust Me and take your eyes off the situation. 

Look for Me in the midst of your fiery furnace. 
Look for Me to do the impossible, right where you are standing.
Focus on Me and 
believe that I will not allow this trial to overtake you.
I will make a way of escape for you, and it will be right on time.

Praise Me, and do not allow this delay to cause you to think that I will not answer your prayer. 
 

Decree victory in the face of what is happening,
and turn a deaf ear to everything except My Word.

Be of good courage, and choose to believe My Word, regardless of the circumstances.  I will be on time in your situation. I Am never late. All I ask, is for you to praise Me during the storm. While you’re waiting, sings songs in the midnight hour.  Sing until you receive a breakthrough in your spirit.  


Rejoice in the face of the adversary and receive healing in your body;
receive deliverance in your family and see doors open for greater opportunities. 
 

Read and Meditate on His Word
Psalms 27:13 -14 - I had 
fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. 

Isaiah 43:2 - When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. 

1 Thessolonians 5:18 - In 
every thing give thanks: for this is the will of GOD in Christ Jesus concerning you. 

1 Corinthians 10:13 - There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but GOD is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 

1 Peter 1:7 - That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that 
perisheth,though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 

James 1:2-4 - My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

Dominate the Circumstances that Surround You, with Faith. Believe & Expect God to Do It!! (2.2.16)

My Child,
Stop allowing your natural eyes to be stronger than your faith.
Stand on My Word and refuse to stagger
at My promises, with eyes of unbelief.

You are to walk by faith, not by sight.

Faith is the key to unlocking every dry area in your life and flood it with living water.
Faith calls those things which be not, as though they were.
Faith in Me will turn that wilderness situation into a celebration of joy.
Faith in Me will triumph over the situation you are going through. 
Faith is the shield that will destroy every fiery dart of the enemy.

You must believe by faith that you will make it through this season. 

Believe
 by faith that you will advance to the next level.
Stop worrying and start believing! 
Believe that by My stripes you are healed.
Believe and expect a change in your finances. 
Let your faith in Me be your new currency, 

and start using it to press your way forward. 
Dominate the circumstances that surround you, with faith.

My child, you will see My Hand move upon your situation and all that concerns you - when you start walking and speaking in faith.  My Word says, “Thou shall decree a thing, and it will happen.” 

Decree and believe that every mountain which is standing in your way is going to move.  And expect it to happen!!

I say to you, “
BELIEVE and EXPECT ME TO DO IT!”

Read and Meditate on His Word:

Daniel 10:12 - Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy GOD, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. 

2 Corinthians 5:7 - For we walk by faith, not by sight

Romans 4:20 - He staggered not at the promise of GOD through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

Romans 4:17 - (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even GOD, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

Ephesians 6:16 - Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

Job 22:28 - Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.

Do Not Allow Problems to "Have You." Mediate on God's Word & Not Your Problems. (2.1.16)

My Child,
You may have problems, but do not allow these problems to have you.  

I know you feel like you should be used to trials and tribulations.  I know sometimes situations can change so fast, that you forget for just a moment that I Am with you. 

Regardless of what is going on in your life, never doubt that I Am standing right there beside you - to carry you through the storm. Always remember who is in control of everything, I AM.

Do not worry about changes that might come.  

There will be many changes through the course of your life,
these changes will work out for your good.

I have prepared many blessings for you, if you would just trust, believe and know that I have power over every situation.  There is nothing going on in your life I am not aware of.  


Now meditate on My Word and not your problems.

 
Read and Meditate on His Word:
Matthew 6:34 - Take therefore, no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. 

Romans 8:17 - And if children, then heirs; heirs of GOD, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. 

Romans 12:21 - Be not overcome 
of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Peace, Be Still. May His Peace & Strength Fill Your Life (1.31.16)

Faith Believers,
Ask GOD to reveal to your heart the ways the enemy has robbed you of the peace that is yours because of Christ. Confess these things to Him and ask Him to release to you His Peace, that passes all understanding.  


Ask Him to quiet the storms in your life; so that you can refocus on living your life for Christ.
   -  Marilyn

~  Prayer  ~

 I thank You Father, that Jesus Himself is my peace and that He has completely destroyed the barriers that separated me from You!  How grateful I am that I have been reconciled to Him through His Blood, shed on the cross, and now I have peace with You.

Forgive me I pray, for the times that I did not cast my cares and anxieties upon You, but instead carried them myself; and allowed my heart to be weighed down and needlessly burdened.

I ask that Your peace (which is beyond my ability to understand) guard my heart and my mind; as I seek to be obedient to you in all areas of my life. I belong to You Father. Thank You Lord Jesus, for the Peace that You give to me, which is so very different from what the world attempts to give. 


Guard my heart with the Holy Spirit, that I will never be afraid of anything that the enemy might try to do.  

Help me to be still, and know that You are GOD; and to hear Your Voice in the midst of the storms that I face, saying “Peace, be still.” Keep me from fear and increase my faith, Lord. 

May my life be characterized by Your peace, regardless of what situation I might face, that You may be glorified in me and through me, and receive the praise that is due Your Name.  

Your Word is a light to my feet - that I may have great peace and not stumble.
I pray that my mind is always controlled  by Your Holy Spirit and
that I will always have peace, in spite of any situation I might face. 

May Your strength and peace fill my life, because I belong to You.
Lord Jesus, my Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace and
Mighty GOD, the Everlasting Father, Abba!

With You all things are possible.

Father God, I invite You into the impossible situations of my life and ask that as I wait, You will fill me with Your peace - for my hope is in You alone Lord and I trust in Your great Name. 


Amen
