Your Word for This Day: “Living on Praise Avenue”

Monday, December 4, 2017

“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!” Philippians 4:4

This is the day that God has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it! What a beautiful way to begin this day, and any other day that you see the rising of the sun. Truly God is good to us.  Truly He has done great things.  Yes, we will give Him praise and lift His name on high.

Today, unlike any other day, let the high praises of God be in your mouth.  Come on, lift your voice, clap your hands and give a shout of triumph and victory. Do not count the problems.  Count the blessings.  Instead of focusing on what you do not have, enjoy what you do have.

Praise is also a weapon of war. In Psalm 149, verse 6 it is described as a two-edged sword.  The enemy hates it when we praise, so make him mad. Praise the Lord with all your strength.

There is power in praise.  There is victory in praise.  There is healing in praise. There is deliverance in praise.  There is anointing in praise. Come on, my friend, let us Praise the Lord!!!!!!!

Father, I praise You.  I rejoice in Your love and Your goodness.  I bless Your holy name.  Lord, You are good and Your mercies endure forever. Lord, I lift Your name on high today.  I give You a high note of praise that You truly deserve. Lord, I will continue to bless and praise You for the rest of my days.  Live in my praises Lord and rejoice over me with singing and dancing today.  Amen.

Your Word for This Day: “Living With a Faithful God”

Friday, November 24, 2017 

“The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” Lamentations 3:22-23

Does it not amaze you, just how much the Lord loves you? So many times we have gone away from Him and done things that we know have caused Him pain, yet His mercies, love, and compassion never fail. Every day we experience His goodness in abundance.  He is such a faithful God.  Even when we are not faithful, He is.

God loves us more than we would ever know, understand or believe. God tells us in the Book of Jeremiah, “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love.”  There was never a time when He did not love us and there will never be a time when he does not love us.  Out of this love issues His faithfulness.  We can depend on God to do what He says He will do.

You may be waiting for the fulfillment of a promise that you received from the Lord.  Don’t give up, and don’t give in.  Remember His faithfulness to Israel.  Remember His faithfulness to Abraham. Remember His faithfulness to those who chose to trust in Him.  Keep declaring to yourself, “He who has promised is faithful.”

Believe the faithfulness of God in your heart and confess it with your mouth.  Hold fast to the confession of your faith.  Be steadfast.  Be immovable.  God is faithful. He will not fail you.  Great is His faithfulness!

Awesome God, You truly are faithful.  Today I stand on Your Word and place my trust in Your unfailing love.  Thank You for being a God that I could depend upon.  Thank You for all that You have done, doing and about to do.  I promise to keep my trust in You and believe that all You have promised You will do.  Amen.

Your Word for This Day: “Living in The Will of God”

Tuesday, November 21, 2017 

“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” 1 John 5:14-15

Let us look at Jesus’ life on earth.  Remember in the garden of Gethsemane when He surrendered His will to the Father?  We see Jesus making the ultimate decision with those profound words, “Nevertheless not my will but thine be done.”

How did Jesus know the will of His Father?  Simple, it was written in the Word.  Jesus came to fulfill that which was written in the Law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning Him.

We can also know the will of the Father as we study His word and develop a relationship with Him so that He can speak, by the Holy Spirit, to our hearts. As we commune with Him daily, He opens our understanding of His Will for us.  Once we know His will, we can now pray with confidence, as we read in the Scriptures. Praying the will of God brings the desired petitions to reality.

Take some time and find out God’s will for any given situation before you embark on prayer.  You may just discover that what you believe for is not what God wants to give to you. Let your prayer be in agreement with the will of God, and you will have that which you asked for.

Teach me Your way and Your will Lord, so that I can accurately make my petitions and request known to You.  Show me how to discover Your will as I spend time in Your Word.  Lord, I want only what You want, so help me Lord to know Your will and Your heart.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.

Your Word for This Day: “Living in Humility”

Monday, November 6, 2017

“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.” James 4:10 

When we come into a relationship with Jesus Christ, and study His life as He walked on the earth we are truly amazed at His level of humility. Pride was not found in Jesus.  He humbled Himself to death, even death on a cross. Can you imagine, the King of Glory, hanging on a tree?  Let Jesus be our example of humility. Do not compare your humility to anyone else on the earth.  Compare it to Jesus’.  I guarantee you, the results will cause you to stop and think and hopefully change your outlook.

Humility leads to promotion.  Jesus was exalted to a position of power and authority because He stooped so low.  We, too, will be lifted to our high place in God if we humble ourselves in the sight of the Lord.  Not in the sight of other human beings to impress them, but in the sight of the Lord.  You see, God is the only One who can read the hearts of men.  To the people around us, we may appear very humble but God may hold a completely different opinion.

Therefore, we must humble ourselves in His sight.  He has redeemed you.  He has made a way for you to access His life, His mind and His character.  Today, determine in your heart to humble yourself in the sight of God.  The rewards will be amazing.

Lord, you proved Your humility, not only by what You said but by what You did.  Help me to do the same today, Lord.  Teach me by Your Spirit how to lay down my life like You did.  In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.

Your Word for This Day: “Living Free of the Past”

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

“No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Philippians 3:13-14 NLT

Many times we are not willing, or able, to leave our past. But, that is exactly what we have to do if we are to move on with God.  Letting go of the past whether it was good or bad is never easy but it is something that we must do to access all that God has in store for us.

Every day with Jesus must be deeper and better than the day before. There will always be something new to learn and understand in God’s Word. As we let go of that which we have already attained or received from God and press on for more of Him, we will daily learn new truths in His Word and new aspects of His character. God wants you to know Him more.  He can be known through all His creation, through the study of His Word and through the many different ways He chooses to reveal Himself.

Today be determined to press through all hindrances and obstacles that will try to stop you from knowing God in His fullness.  There is so much more to attain.  Go for it.  You will find Him as you search for Him with all your heart.

Lord, today I pray that You would give me the ability to seek You with all my heart.  May You become so real and important to me that I will willingly pay the price to know You more. In Jesus’ name I pray.   Amen.

Your Word for This Day: “I Will Not Fear”

Tuesday, October 17, 2017 

“I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people who have set themselves against me all around.” Psalm 3:6

Fear is an emotion that has developed within God’s children everywhere in the world.  Many of us can quote 2 Timothy 1:7 that states, “For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”  Yet with all the knowledge that we have, we have not been able to defeat the spirit of fear! What is it about fear that is so addictive and transferable?  Why is it easier to fear than to trust?

Living in the physical world causes us to put more emphasis on the things that are seen and experienced, than on the things that are written in God’s Word and the reality of His Spirit. Even if in the natural realm there seems to be ten thousand people against you, if you would only use your spiritual senses you would realize that there are more for you than be against you.

Will you refuse to be afraid, and go forth in the strength of the Lord today?  Remember there are more angels on assignment to protect and minister to you, than the enemies that may rise up against you. In this be confident!

Father, in the name of Jesus, I pray that You would open the eyes of my understanding so that I may know without a doubt that You are with me, Your rod and staff will continue to comfort and guide me every day of my life. Amen

Your Word for This Day: “The Power to Create Wealth”

Thursday, September 28, 2017 

“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” Deuteronomy 8:18  

As children of God, we have are abundantly blessed! We have His Spirit within us, His love surrounds us, and He has given us the power to create wealth. In God’s word, we learn about His mind concerning wealth and finances and that is what we declare over our lives today.

Daily Declaration:

 

God has given me the ability to have wealth for the Word says, “Remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth” (Deut. 8:18), and the Word is true and will not return to God empty (Isaiah 55:11).

I declare that I am anointed to prosper financially and to use my finances for the advancing of the Kingdom of God.

I cancel the effects of every generational curse of poverty in Jesus’ name.  I set myself free by applying the blood of Jesus Christ, from every and all alliance with every generational curse of poverty.

I am a new creation in Christ, and so, I walk in victory in my finances.

I declare that I have the Spirit of wisdom living in me. I know how to conduct my affairs wisely and so see the rewards of my labour with the help of the Lord.

I am a giver. I give liberally, and so, I shall receive liberally. for the word of God says, “Whatever a man sows, that he shall reap” (Galatians 6:7).

By faith I call my finances restored.  I am prosperous, and full of God’s abundance according to the Lord Jesus Christ’s plan for my life (Jeremiah 29:11).

In Christ Jesus’ name. Amen!
