Renewal of hope

arto-marttinen-196643

You God are the great redeemer. I proclaim a renewal of hope and a renewal of calling in your life. Grant them a vision on how to give to the body of Christ. Embolden them to be conduits of love.  Spark, ignite, and re-fire your people to become seekers after Your great love. Empower them to use their giftings. Embolden them to run the race that was set before them by Your resurrection life.

I proclaim there is freedom in Christ. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

I proclaim the truth spoken by Christ, “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. I choose life for my family and for all those I love and anyone that my heart touches.

As Christ’s perfect love takes, its seat in your life fear and anxiety will flee in Jesus name.

We praise You Jesus. Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty.  Worthy is the Lamb to be praised.  Let everything on the earth that has breath within it give praise.

 

Thank you, Jesus.  Amen.

Praise commensurate with His glory

HFMyEWQH(mmaarrss, morgue file)

Ephesians 1: 12 CJB

12 so that we who earlier had put our hope in the Messiah would

bring him praise commensurate with his glory.

 

Prayer: Lord Jesus,  help us. We can not do it on our own.  Help us to bring praise to You that is commensurate with Your glory.  Help us to comprehend the fullness of Your glory.  Your ways are so far above our ways Your thoughts so far above our thoughts.  Roll Your glory around us let it penetrate to our bones so that we might be restored to our original creation design in praise of our Maker.  Heighten our praise, take it to the next level and further still so that we might bask in Your shalom in all circumstances.  We praise You with every molecule of our being in utter obedience to You our Savior.  Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Flattened dreams = No praise?

Dreams of chocolate chip goodness wafting through the house promises of a warm, gooey and tasty delight.

“I should have checked to see if we had all the ingredients kids, sorry.”

Promises shattered we stared into a bowl full of ingredients but devoid of baking soda. Without baking soda, the mixture would be flat, dense and unrecognizable as cookies. All of that work not to mention drooling for nothing?!

What is the one ingredient if left out of your spiritual life will create flattened and lifeless Christians?

                        Praise:

  • Is our purpose
  • Is the highest form of warfare
  • Is arguably the most individualistic ingredient in our Christian walk
  • Is a point Christians seem to ridicule the most (to raise hands or not to, to dance, or sway or even to bring out banners, flags etc. or to stand with hands folded across our chest)
  • Praise scares the daylights out of Satan and his minions because it negates every curse he could ever think to lay on us

 

What is stopping you from praising?

Your circumstances? God forbid.  Praise releases you from your rotten circumstances and unleashes God’s promises into your life.

We cannot go down aisle #4 and pick up some praise to add to our Christian walk but we can begin where we are at and build from there.

 

2 Corinthians 5:7 (AMP)

7 for we walk by faith, not by sight [living our lives in a manner consistent with our confident belief in God’s promises]—

 

When we begin to take account of His promises and live not by sight but by faith. Praise naturally explodes from within us.  You can’t hold it back any more than if you tried to hold your breath your body would burst out into life.

If your life looks like a rotten pile of steaming junk, do not speak life and strength into your rotten circumstances.  Speak glory and praise onto the Lord of your salvation.  Did He save you or not? If He saved you once, He can do it again.

 

Please pray with me to release God’s will.

 

I praise You for Your promises You say You will supply all my needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus.  How great are the riches found in the depths of Jesus- I seek those riches, grant me my heart’s desire to know and walk within Your promises.  I proclaim that I seek the Lord, restore my heart to You as You grant me my heart’s desire- Your Presence.  You know the plans you have for me and they are for good.  Help me to rest in Your goodness.  Darken my eyes to the world and awaken the eyes and ears of my heart to Your Kingdom.  Let Your Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.  My life is Yours and I praise You for my finances for what You have given me and for the provisions that are to come.  Every knee shall bow to the glory of Christ Jesus and I bow now.  Your ways are so far above my ways.  Holy, holy, holy great is the Lord God almighty and greatly He is to be praised.  I lift my life as a living sacrifice available for Your great plans.  I desire my obedience and praise on earth to match my obedience and praise I live out in heaven.  My joy leaps within me let my praises lift You higher.  Please forgive me of where I had You seated in my life previously.  Cover me in the blood of the Lamb who is worthy to be praised.  Awaken the sleepers let the shofar blast be sounded- I will be found in You.  I proclaim and declare as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.  Teach me what it is to abide in You and You in me. My great and glorious Lord I praise You. Thank You, for loving me.  Amen.

Does God ask you to praise for His benefit or yours? (consider this question as you enter this time of thanksgiving)

What do you need to praise for?  Let me know and I will praise with you.

Betrayal, Turned triumph!

betrayal

Why does the evil one keep returning with the same weaponry?  I have been in intellectual/spiritual turmoil for days looking at this question, from many angles.  I have come to the conclusion that Satan is both sly and lazy.  He sees a hint of pain or chink in the armor and he uses blunt force trauma in that precise location, again and again.

A close friend has been afflicted by betrayal again.  Disbelief, accompanied by a stone in my stomach was my immediate reaction.  Prayer enlightened my perspective from earthly to eternal. My sadness is short lived for the joy of the Lord has already conquered the evil ones set-up on this one.  Praise and Glory be to God.

My husband has also been afflicted by betrayal, childhood and adult.  I remember after a particularly praise worthy break through my husband was awoken in the third and fourth watch.  As he had cried out to the Lord mourning a childhood betrayal the Lord heard and answered his un-articulated prayers.  His heart cried “I am so alone, betrayed, left broken and unseen.  What is wrong with me?”  He was awoken to the Lord saying, “I too was betrayed.”  Judas was his betrayer.  So close to Jesus yet so blinded by the world.  If we are honest with ourselves we will also admit we are blinded by the world.  God took the wiles of the evil one and worked it for the good of mankind.

If you are afflicted by the re-occurring weaponry of the evil one, name it, bind it and begin to praise!

Pray:  I bind the evil spirit of betrayal ( name of weapon used against you), anguish and tragedy in Jesus name.  I loose God’s will, strength and plans upon my life.  I pick-up the mantle Jesus created for me since before time began and march on.  Great is the glory of the Lord and I will praise My Savior.  Such a time as this is a time for praise not mourning. “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart! I have overcome the world.”  Jesus told us this in John 16:33.  I know this scripture is true in my heart and will act it out with my praise.  Thank you,Jesus.

Satan hates praise to the Living God our Savior.
