“This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.” 1 John 5:14-15 NASB
Prayer works! Prayer makes a difference! May we never take it for granted, but may we see it for what it is. Prayer is our communication with Almighty God AND it is His communication with us.
We should always be praying with an open heart and a listening ear as we position ourselves to hear from our Lord and pray HIS will and desire for every situation. Praying HIS will and not our own is what will result in answered prayer.
As a follow-up to prayer, we may be called to declare and decree God’s Word out loud over a situation or over a place. We are God’s voice on the earth!! He uses us to PRAY His will, to SPEAK His will, and to DO His will!! HALLELUJAH!!
Father God, what a blessing to be able to join You in holy conversation! What a joy to be in Your presence and hear Your voice! Oh Lord! Help us to speak Your will boldly and with the authority You have given us!! May Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven! In Jesus’ Name! AMEN!! ~~Tina K. Roach
The GLORY of the LORD is never under quarantine!
“but truly, as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD…”. Numbers 14:21 NKJV
“Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.” I Chronicles 16:24 NKJV
“But You, O LORD, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head.” Psalms 3:3 NKJV
“The voice of the LORD is over the waters; The God of glory thunders; The LORD is over many waters.” Psalms 29:3 NKJV
“And blessed be His glorious name forever! And let the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and Amen.” Psalms 72:19 NKJV
During these challenging times remember WHO YOU ARE!!
With my mouth I will give thanks abundantly to the LORD ; And in the midst of many I will praise Him. (Psalms 109:30 NASB)
May we not be silent this day and in the days ahead. May ALL who are around us know Who we thank and Who we praise!
This is not just in Church…but everywhere that we happen to be! WE are the Church!!
Our Thanksgiving and Praise should not be shaped and molded by where we are or what circumstances we may find ourselves in.
Our Thanksgiving and Praise is a response to WHO GOD IS!
This Scripture says, “With my mouth…” Thanksgiving and Praise is meant to be SPOKEN!
Out of our hearts, our mouths speak. (Based on Luke 6:45).
What is in our hearts today? May our words express our love of our God!
The Word of God in our mouths – spoken forth with the authority we have in Jesus and empowered by the Holy Spirit will accomplish much in the Kingdom of God!! DECLARE HIS WORD!!
As we celebrate our independence and freedom as a country on this day, may we also celebrate our freedom in Jesus Christ!!
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36
