Even If...



Even if you have failed or experiencing disappointment, keep going, keep pressing forward. Failure is not fatal, it is not defining. You are not a failure, you are an overcomer.  If you keep pressing forward, you will overcome.  No matter how great the fall, failure is not your destination, it happens to us all. So pick yourself up and keep going, keep trying, again and again, don't give up. No one is immune to failure. It is the courage to continue that counts, so don't give up now. "Failure is not falling down, but refusing to get up" ~Chinese quote

"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
For the Lord upholds him with His hand." (Psalm 37:23-24)

Even if you are struggling, keep working hard, there is hope. God is watching out for you. You don't have to face the trials alone, call on God, call on the name of Jesus, He will carry you through.  Though you are struggling and your trial is big to you, it is not too big for God, so cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you.

"Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)

Even if you feel darkness all around you and you feel you cannot continue, you are tired, you've had enough, enough of pain, disappointment, adversity, failure and you don't know where to turn, I encourage you today, keep walking there is light at the end of the tunnel. During times of adversity, put your faith in God.  He will help guide you to the path of happiness and peace.  Friends and family may not be able to help, but God is there waiting for you to turn to Him and He will carry you through the dark tunnel of life into a place of peace.  God will give you health, strength and joy in times of adversity.  He is always there, I encourage you to call on Him.  Call on the name of Jesus, He is the answer.  He will be your Light and Protector through the tough times.

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)

Even if you have lost everything and all hope is gone, keep standing.  The devil wants you to lose hope and he wants you to start losing faith.  When your heart has grown heavy and you feel lost, I encourage you to keep standing, do not allow the heaviness, the burden, the weight, the worries of life and anxiety to hold you back.  There is not a feeling we can have that God is not aware of.  He knows when we are hurting, lost, lonely and afraid.  When we cry out to Him, He will respond tenderly...

"Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." (Isaiah 41:10)

Even if you are hearing negative voices, keep fighting, don't give up.  God has a voice, a soft voice of hope and a future. The enemy also has a contrary voice, a negative voice of failure, whispers of accusation, guilt, fear and hopelessness asking you to end it all.  That is the voice of the enemy.  He wants to kill you, to steal from you and if you pay enough attention to that voice he will try and destroy you.  The voice of the enemy is yelling "Defeat!", "Failure!" at you, robbing you of your joy in the Lord. Don't let that "voice" ruin your life.  Don't allow that "voice" to ruin your walk with Jesus.  

There is another voice of the Holy Spirit.  It requires a lot more effort to hear.  It is not aggressive, it is a very soft voice of comfort and hope.  You have to slow down and be quiet and spend time in prayer and God's Word so you can hear His still small voice.  Prayer will bring you closer to the Holy Spirit and you will hear His soft voice of comfort and hope. All of us hear voices, but we have a choice on who we want to listen to.  Choose to listen and believe the Voice of truth, His name is Jesus.

“Behold, all those who were incensed against you shall be ashamed and disgraced; They shall be as nothing,
And those who strive with you shall perish.
12 You shall seek them and not find them—
Those who contended with you.
Those who war against you shall be as nothing, as a nonexistent thing.
13 For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand,
Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you." (Isaiah 41:11-13)

Even if everything you lay your hands on seems to slip through the net, keep going and don't give up.

My Prayer For You

Today, I pray that the Lord will be with you, may He encourage your heart and deliver you from all the attacks of the enemy.  You are blessed.  May the blessing of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit be upon you.  I pray that the Lord will give you strength to face the hard and troubled times you are currently going through.  Remember, life is all about seasons.  This season of your life will pass and you will make it to the other side.  Even though you go through the valley of the shadow of death, I pray that the Lord will be your rod and your staff, your strength, your pillar and deliverer. The dry seasons in life do not last.  The spring rains will come again.  I pray that your spring rains will come again.  You are not alone...you are not forgotten.  

"The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit." (Psalm 34:17-18)


God bless you today and always.

May The Lord Be Your Strength and Your Help in Time of Trouble

I feel very strongly in my heart that the Lord is saying to you, 

"My child, I see your troubles and your struggles. You are going through so much, you've had enough.  I see your tears and I hurt even as you hurt.  I see you are on the verge of giving up and packing it in.  You wonder, is there really a God up there?  If there is a God, then why am I going through so much?  I see your pain is becoming unbearable and you are becoming weary.  You are thinking, worrying, anxious and your peace has left you.  You are desperate for a solution to your problems.  

I want you to know that I am walking with you. I have not left you forsaken.  You are not alone.  Your tears mean a lot to me and I hurt when you hurt.  You are wondering and asking, "Lord, do you feel my pain?"  My answer to you is, yes, I feel your pain more than you can imagine. I feel your sorrows and infirmities.  Because of my love for you, I chose to die for you.   I was despised and rejected, yet, I chose to die for you.  I bore your griefs and carried your sorrows so you might walk in freedom.  No, you are not alone, I am walking with you and also talking to you.  I have made a way out for you."
He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
Surely He has borne our griefs, And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. (Isaiah 53: 3-4)

"It is my love for you that made me sacrifice my life for you.  I died so you might be healed, I died so you would be victorious, I died so that you might have life and have it more abundantly. I would not have gone to the Cross to die in vain.  If I did not love you, I would not have shed my blood and died for you."

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed and He was afflicted,Yet He opened not His mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth. (Isaiah 53: 5-7)
"I died for you, I am touched by your sufferings because I myself know what it means to suffer.  I was beaten, bruised, despised, spat at and wrongly accused.  I was nailed to the Cross to die.  I suffered from hatred, rejection, mockery and abandonment.  I suffered the loss of friends, I suffered from hunger, exhaustion and physical pain.  I was denied and forsaken by my friends, I was left lonely and abandoned.  I went through a lot of pain and suffering.  If there is something you are suffering from, I have suffered in some like manner. I was subjected to all the kinds of trials and pain that you are subjected to and I  am here to help you.  Yes, I do feel your pain.  I have compassion for you and I love you.  

I want you to trust me that I will not leave you abandoned.  I am here to carry you through, I am here to help you and to lead you out of your pain.  Put your trust in me, lean on me and let me help you.  Lean on my everlasting arms.  I know you are tired and weary.  I want you to surrender all to me now.  Don't postpone it, surrender all to me now.  I am here with outstretched arms, will you surrender all to me?  I am able to carry you through.  Trust me and don't doubt me.  I am able."

This is the word of the Lord to you, are you willing to surrender all?  If you are, then please pray this prayer with me. I want you to confess it:  

"Dear Lord Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner and ask for your forgiveness.  I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead.  I turn from my sins and invite you to come into my heart and life.  I want to trust and follow you as my Lord and Saviour.  I give all my burdens to you and I receive your peace into my heart.  Come and help me and give me the strength I need to continue in this life.  I pray in your mighty name.  Amen.

You Are Precious in God's sight

Do you know you are precious in the sight of God your Maker?  Well, if you have ever doubted this fact, the Lord says I should let you know that He loves you and that you are very precious in His sight.  He is interested in those things which concern you from the smallest to the biggest issues in your life.  He loves you, He cares about you and He desires to be more of a friend to you.  The world is rapidly changing for worse, I know, but God is not the author of chaos.  Man is the author of chaos and his own worst enemy.  Our world is in a mess because of our own doing.  These are the last days, there is no doubt about it. 

Dear reader, fellow believer, brother, sister, friend, are you preparing yourself for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ or are you not bothered at all?  Time is running out, this is a fact and we must be prepared in case today is our last.  Don't be taken by surprise and think this is an old wives tale.  The Word of God is true.  Christ has come, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.  Are you prepared?  If you are not, I think it's time to make a decision, for tomorrow might be too late.

The Bible states in Matthew 24:6
6 "And you will hear of wars and rumours of war, (this is happening right now in many different parts of the world).  See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.  And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows."

There are many questions you might want to ask that I may not be able to answer, but one thing I know without  a shadow of doubt is that Christ is coming again.

Will you pray this simple prayer with me just to make sure that even if the worst happens, your eternal future is secure in Christ.  This prayer will start you on your journey with God.  If you want to receive Christ in your heart for the first time, or if you want to recommit your life so that you can get back on track, please pray this out loud:

Dear Lord Jesus, I come to you today and I confess that I need you.  Please come into my heart. Jesus, be my Lord and Saviour.  Thank you for giving me a brand new start. Wash me, cleanse me and forgive all my sins.  I turn from my sins and invite you to come into my heart and life.  I want to trust and follow you as my Lord and Saviour. Today, I open my life to you.  Thank you Lord for accepting me as one of your own. In your holy name I pray. Amen.

Congratulations! You are a child of the King.  You are precious, you are loved, your are accepted in the beloved. 

There are 3 things I would advise you to do so that you can move on in your journey and grow. First, you need to get a Bible if you don't already have one.  The next thing you need to do is to start to pray. Prayer is basically talking to God...He is waiting to hear your lovely voice.  The third thing you need to do is to find a Christian church. God does not desire that you go it alone. He wants us to make friends and come together to spend time worshipping Him.  Don't just go to any Church.  I would highly recommend that you go to a Bible believing Church and where Jesus is central to their teaching. 

Thank you for taking the time to pray this prayer and reading this blog. God bless and continue to encourage you in Jesus Name.

May Your Dream Never Die

Dream On (94 kb)

There are giant dream killers out there in the form of friends, colleagues, acquaintances and sometimes even your own family.  The story of Joseph in the Bible is proof of what happens when you have a dream and your own family become your enemies because of jealousy and insecurity (Read Genesis 37).  Joseph's brothers disliked him because of his dream and plotted to kill him.  You see, the enemy is a dream killer.  Perhaps he is trying to kill your dreams?

The Lord said I should encourage you that no matter what negative comments you may hear you must not let your dream die.  Have you got a vision, goal or a dream you’d like to see come to pass?  The Lord said you must not let your dream die.  Are things proving difficult, it feels like nothing is ever going to happen and you are on the verge of giving up on your dreams, goals and aspirations?  I can hear the Lord saying,


“My child, don’t let your dream die, don’t give up on your dreams.  I created you and put dreams in your heart; I birthed you with dreams.  Before I created you I dreamt about you. Before you were formed in your mother’s womb, I knew you, I dreamt about you, I visualised
you…you are my dream.  Since the day you were born, the enemy hated you and tries to kill your dreams and visions.  I encourage you today, don’t let your dream die, I am here to help you, I am your Keeper, the glory and lifter of your head.  The enemy hates you because I love you.  He tries to make you believe that I don’t care about my own.  You are mine and I love you with an everlasting love.

Don’t allow negativity and discouragement to kill your dream.  I want you to dream big and have faith that all things are possible."

But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)

 
"You must not allow adversity, disappointments, broken promises or negative comments to kill your dream.  Don’t allow the enemy to put you off or make you give up on what you believe.  Have faith and stand strong. Only the strong make it to the end.  I believe in you, but you must believe and have faith that you can do it and that you will make it.  If you fall down, you must get back up again.  Fighters don’t quit, only losers give up.  I encourage you my child, don’t give up and throw the towel in, rise up and fight back.  Learn to say “No” to the enemy.  Have I not said in my Word that you must resist the devil?  You have to resist the devil after you have submitted yourself to me and he will flee from you.”
"Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will
come to you.” (Job 22:21) NIV


"Submit
to God, and you will have peace; then things will go well for
you.” (Job 22:21) NLT
“Yield now and be at peace with Him; thereby good will come to you.”
(Job 22:21) NASB


My prayer for you today
I pray that your dreams will not die.  I pray in times of disappointment that you will pick yourself up and dare to dream again.  I pray you will be resilient and resist the devil and he will flee from you.  I pray that God will send helpers your way to help promote and elevate you to a higher place.  I pray that whatsoever you lay your hands on shall prosper.  I pray that you shall prosper and be in good health even as your soul prospers.  I pray that every
disappointment in your life will be turned into a blessing.  I pray you will be the head and not the tail, you will be above only and not beneath.  I pray if you fully obey the Lord and carefully follow all His commands that all the blessings will come on you according to Deuteronomy 28: 1-12,

I pray that the LORD God will set you high above all the nations on earth.  You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country. The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks. Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed. You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven. The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to.

The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you. The LORD will establish you if you keep His commands and walk in obedience to him. Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they will fear you. The LORD will grant you abundant prosperity in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground in the land you are living in right now. I pray that the LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations, but will borrow from none. The LORD will make you the head, not the tail.

If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom. I encourage you today, do not turn aside from God, to the right or to the left.  He is the Creator of all things and He will make your dreams come true according to His will in Jesus name.  Amen.

Have a blessed day and thanks for taking the time to read my blog.

May the Lord Visit You and Make Your Life Fruitful

Galatians 5:1 (35 kb)
The Lord showed me in a vision a couple of days ago about people in prison.  He showed me a picture of a very large prison where prisoners have been sentenced to serve time for various offences.  He said no matter the length of their sentence, each prisoner is allowed a time of visitation from friends and family on specified days and times.  When a visit has been booked by friends or family to go and see their loved one, the prison authorities would inform the prisoner to let them know they are due a visitation by a friend or family on a certain day and time. 
 
I began to imagine if I were that person, how excited I would be if I was told someone was coming to visit me in the place of my affliction. I would excitedly look forward to each new day until the day of the visit.  My heart would be so lifted at the thought of seeing a loved one walk through the doors of the visiting room with arms outstretched to give me a massive big hug.  My expression would be, "Just can't wait!" 
 
The Lord said I should tell you that in the same manner that family and friends go and visit their loved ones in prison, He will visit you.  He said your hour of visitation has come.
 
He said your prison could be a mental prison, it could be physical or it could be spiritual.  You don't have to be physically locked up behind bars to be in prison.  You could be imprisoned in your mind, you could be imprisoned with sickness in your body or you could be in prison mentally or be spiritually bound.  Whatever your prison, the Lord is saying, "I will visit you like I visited Joseph in prison.  I will come and bless you and make you fruitful in the land of your affliction."
 
...“For God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction." (Genesis 41:52)
 
Dear reader, what sort of prison are you feeling locked up in?  Do you feel sentenced and hemmed in by circumstances of life?  Are you feeling locked up that everywhere you turn there is no way out?  I certainly feel hemmed in sometimes, but the Spirit of God always pulls me out.  I have walked through some dark places in my life and the power of God has brought me out and totally delivered me from the afflictions of the enemy.  You might be crying out for help and no one seems to be answering, all you can hear are the echoes of your own voice bouncing back at you.  Are you feeling no one cares and you are all alone?  You may be surrounded by people yet feel locked up inside.  Have you been struggling with particular issues for many years and there is no breakthrough?  The Lord says, "I will visit you in prison, I will come in and set you free.  I will break the chains and undo the shackles that bind you.  I will bring My light into the midst of darkness and set you free.  I will open the prison doors like I did for Paul and Silas in Acts 16:
 
23 And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. 24 Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks.
25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed. (Acts 16: 23-26)
 
My prayer for you today is that God will strengthen you, bless you and make you fruitful in the land of your affliction.  I pray that you will come to an understanding that you may not be able to end the pain, but that in the midst of the pain, have a knowing that God is there with you.  Jesus had to carry the cross by himself, but God was there with Him knowing that He has already prepared a place of victory for Him.  God has prepared a place of victory for you, you are not alone.  Jesus had to carry the cross to the place of crucifixion, He was in pain and in a very dark place of sorrow. He was despised, spat at, abandoned, crucified and finally put to death, but on the 3rd day, He rose again!  He rose again! He was victorious.  I pray that you will rise again. I pray that God will visit you and bring out of your land of affliction in Jesus Name.
 
 "...but God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land to the land of which He swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob." (Genesis 50:24)
 
I pray that the Lord will visit you in this hour.  May He bless you, keep you and strengthen you in Jesus Name. Amen. 
 

The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.

When You Feel Down - A Poem Dedicated to You

This is a poem the Lord inspired me to write whilst waiting on what to put on the blog. I dedicate this poem to you. I hope it blesses you.

WHEN YOU FEEL DOWN
 
When you feel down, do not despair
All hope is not lost
When you feel low
Cast not away your confidence
Your change will come
When all hope seems lost
Remember, its not the end
Just a door to another beginning
Your change will come
When a door shuts, another opens
Disappointment is a door
A door to an appointment
An opportunity
To a new discovery
 
Disappointment is delayed appointment
A disguise for blessing
It will strengthen, but will not destroy
Meet disappointment with courage
Embrace it in order to see a new season
Your change, your new season
Your appointment, your blessing
Through disappointment will come
Your blessing
Be strong,  be determined
Don't give up, don't give in
Meet disappointment with courage
Don't give up, don't give in
You will overcome if you don't give up
 
When you feel down, be strong, don't give in
When you feel low, be strong, don't give up
Disappointments come, disappointments will go
Disappointment is a disguise
A disguise for blessing
A message that leads to your destination
Your destination of appointment
A blessing for appointment
Be determined to overcome
Be determined to fight
Troubles come, troubles will go
We fall down, but we get up again
 
Your destination is your appointment
Your appointment, the path to greatness
We fall, but we get up again
Get up again in spite of the fall
Get up again in spite of disappointment
Pain is inevitable
It comes through disappointment
Walk through the darkness of disappointment
Into the light of your appointment
 
I encourage you, take heart!
Turn on the light of your appointment
Convert your disappointments into opportunities
Let your joy scream across the pain of disappointment
Turn on the light of your appointment
And the darkness of disappointment
Will fade away from you!
 
Wishing you courage in times of disappointment.
I will be praying for you. x

May the Lord Draw You out of many Waters and Give You Peace

Perhaps you are going through a very difficult time at the moment, the Lord is saying to you, "Dear child, peace be still."  If your soul is troubled and things seem to be working against you, the Lord is saying to you, "Peace, be still." If your heart is broken and you are going through disappointments, the Lord is saying, "Peace, be still." If you are tired, don't know what to do and you feel like packing it in, the Lord is saying, "Dear child, peace, be still, peace, be still...you are not forsaken, I am with you" 
 
My prayer for you today is in Psalm 3,
 
"LORD, how they have increased who trouble me!
Many are they who rise up against me.
Many are they who say of me,
"There is no help for him in God."
 
But You, O LORD, are a shield for me,
My glory and the One who lifts up my head."
 
When you are troubled on every side and you feel you are under attack.  When many rise up against you at work, in your home, amongst friends or wherever else, and when many are thinking negative thoughts towards you, thinking you will never find help in your situation. I pray that the Lord will be a shield for you. He will be the glory and the lifter of your head.  I pray the Lord will save you from all those who persecute you and deliver you. I pray you will cry to the Lord with your voice and He will hear you from His holy hill.
 
When you lay down and sleep, and you feel restless, anxious, worried and panicky; when your soul is troubled within you, I pray that the Lord will sustain you.  I pray you will not be afraid of ten thousands of people who have set themselves against you all around.  I pray that the workers of iniquity will depart from you and that the Lord will hear the voice of your weeping.  I pray that the Lord will hear the voice of your supplication and He will receive your prayers. I pray the wickedness of the wicked will come to an end and that you will find peace in all aspects of your life.
 
The Lord says He will defend you, He will fight for you and He will justify you, if you only put your trust in Him.  Your defense is of God, who saves the upright in heart.
 
May the Lord be a refuge for you; a refuge in times of trouble.  May He be your defense.  The Bible says in Psalm 9 vs 12, "He does not forget the cry of the humble."  I pray that the Lord will not forget your cry.  He will answer you, He will have mercy on you.  He will consider your trouble and lift you up from the gates of death, that you may tell of His praise.  I pray that the Lord shall keep and preserve your soul.  I pray according to Psalm 16vs 5 that the Lord will maintain your lot and that lines will fall to you in pleasant places.
 
May the Lord give you counsel and your heart be glad.  May He instruct you in the night seasons and show you the path of life.
May the Lord keep you as the apple of His eye and hide you under the shadow of His wings, from the wicked who oppress you and from your enemies who surround you. May the Lord draw you out of many waters.  May He be your support and bring you out into a broad place. May the Lord deliver you and arm you with strength.  May He lift you up above those who rise against you and give you peace as you obey His word in Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
 
Be encouraged :-)

May the LORD Visit You and Have Mercy on You

Psalm 73:25 (61 kb)
My prayer for you today is in Psalm 25, a Psalm of David:

To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
O my God, I trust in You;
Let me not be ashamed;
Let not my enemies triumph over me.
Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed;
Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause.

I pray that the LORD will remember you and lift up your soul.  I pray that the Lord will lift you out of the miry clay and set your feet on a solid Rock.  I pray that you will not fail and that you will hang in there and not give up.  I pray that you will put your trust in the Lord and not doubt His ability to deliver and bring you out of any dire situation. I pray that you will not be ashamed and that your enemies will not triumph over you.  I pray that you will be patient and wait upon the Lord, He alone is the Almighty God and He alone is the author of our times and seasons.  This season of your life shall pass and as you patiently wait on the Lord you will not be ashamed.  May God remove any form of shame and condemnation of the enemy from your life and may He put all your enemies to shame.  May all those who accuse you falsely be put to shame and may you laugh the last laugh in Jesus Name.
 
Show me Your ways, O Lord;
Teach me Your paths.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
For You are the God of my salvation;
On You I wait all the day.
 
I pray that God's Word in the Bible will be a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path. I pray that the Lord will teach you and lead you in the truth of His Word and that as the mountains surround Jerusalem, He will surround you forever with His peace, His truth and His joy.  I pray that God will be the glory and the lifter up of your head and that you will not bow or stoop in shame.
 
6 Remember, O Lord, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses,
For they are from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions;
According to Your mercy remember me,
For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord.
 
I pray that the Lord will remember you and forgive you any trespasses and that you will also forgive anyone who might have trespassed against you.  May He not remember the sins of your youth, but may He remember you according to His mercy for His goodness' sake.  You are not forgotten, God never forgets His own.  In fact, today is a day of remembrance for you before the Lord God Almighty.  Your breakthrough is very near.
 
12 Who is the man that fears the Lord?
Him shall He teach in the way He chooses.
13 He himself shall dwell in prosperity,
And his descendants shall inherit the earth.
14 The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him,
And He will show them His covenant.
15 My eyes are ever toward the Lord,
For He shall pluck my feet out of the net.
 
I pray that you will not lean on your own understanding, in all your ways you will acknowledge the Lord and He will direct your path.  I pray the Lord teach you in the way He chooses and not in the way that you have chosen.  I pray that as you follow His leading that He will make you dwell in prosperity and that all your children and grandchildren shall inherit the earth and the Lord will multiply your blessings and add more joy to your household.  I pray that you will not remove your eyes from the presence of the Lord and that your eyes shall be ever toward Him.  May He pluck your feet out of the net or snare of the enemy in Jesus Name.
 
Turn Yourself to me, and have mercy on me,
For I am desolate and afflicted.
17 The troubles of my heart have enlarged;
Bring me out of my distresses!
18 Look on my affliction and my pain,
And forgive all my sins.
19 Consider my enemies, for they are many;
And they hate me with cruel hatred.
20 Keep my soul, and deliver me;
Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You.
21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,
For I wait for You.
22 Redeem Israel, O God,
Out of all their troubles!
 
May the Lord visit you and have mercy on you, may He bring you out of all your distresses in Jesus Name.  May He look on your affliction and your pain and forgive all your sins.  May the Lord keep your soul and deliver you.  May you not be ashamed as you put all your trust in Him.  I pray that God's integrity and uprightness will preserve you as you wait on the Lord.  May He redeem you and lift you out of all your troubles in Jesus Name.  Have hope in the Lord, be of good courage and He shall strengthen your heart.
 
God bless you today and forever more.

May God's Peace Abide with You

As I was praying and worshipping in the presence of God today, the Spirit of the Lord began to speak to me and God instructed me to write the words below.  They are not my own words; they are the words of Jesus to you.  I pray you are blessed as you read.

This is what He had to say to you:

“I am the LORD, the Creator of every living thing; I am your all in all.  What would you like me to be to you in this hour?  I am your peace, your keeper, your rear guard and your defence.  I am everything, your all in all.  I am your deliverer, your friend, your Saviour and King.  I am willing and able to do exceedingly more than you can ever expect or think.  I am your all in all.  I am your provider, your peace and all that you can imagine me to be.  I am the Lamb of God.  The Lamb that was slain, the King that laid down His life for you.  I paid the ultimate price for your life, the price that no man could pay.  I am your all in all.  I laid down my life and shed my blood for you and I gave you the victory through the blood that I shed on Calvary.  I have given you the power to overcome all the powers of darkness.  I am your all in all.  My grace is sufficient for you and my mercy and faithfulness is with you at all times.  Where sin abounds, grace abounds even more.  I am your all in all.  I am your peace in troubled times, your wisdom and your hope.  I took your shame and gave you confidence.  When you fall down I pick you up.  You are mine and I am yours.  I am the Lamb of God that was slain.  I died for you so that you might be free from all burdens that weigh on you.  I died so you can be free from guilt and shame.  You are my treasure and my precious jewel.  I am your all in all.  I am your all in all.  I am everything you can ever need in this life.  Without me in your life, there is no hope for tomorrow.  I am your peace.  I am the way, the truth and the life.  I am the way into eternity, I am the life in you, I am the One that makes a way where there seems to be no way.  I am the One that has kept you alive, I gave my last breath for you.  I am the One that called you and justified you.  I shed my blood for you and I made a way into eternal salvation.  My blood is the one and only sacrifice that is acceptable to God.  There is no other way to the Father, but by me.  Come unto me when you are weary and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.  I am your peace.  I am the one who has all the power to carry your burdens.  I will give you my yoke that is easy and my burden that is light.  I am the one who has the wisdom to lead you and give you direction.  I was here before the world began.  Before you were formed in your mother’s womb, I knew you.  I am the Son of God, I am Emmanuel God with us, I am the Bread of life, the Rose of Sharon and the Lilly of the valley.  I was sent to you to serve you and lift you out of the miry clay.  No man can measure my worth.  I took you out of the miry clay and set your feet on the solid Rock of salvation.  I was crucified and laid behind the stone.  I lived to die, rejected and alone.  I did all this because of you.  It was you I was thinking of above all, I was thinking about you then, I am thinking about you now and I shall be thinking about you for eternity.  I am praying for you even now.  My mercy is with you and my faithfulness will not depart from you.  You are mine and I am yours.  I am the One that was sent to set the captives free.  I love you more than you can imagine.  My love for you is immeasurable; it goes beyond what words can describe.  Don’t give up on me, I am here for you and speaking to you right now.  Let me help you and set you free.  I died for you and for all that you stand for.  I took the shame, the guilt, rejection and all the abuse because of you.  It was you I was thinking of all along, I thought of you and took it all.  Above all, you are mine says the Lord, and I love you with an everlasting love.”

God loves you and wants you to experience peace in this life and in the life to come.  The Bible says we can only have peace through our Lord Jesus Christ. 

“We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 5:1)
We can only experience peace, abundance and eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ, so I would like to lovingly encourage you that if you do not know Jesus Christ to please confess the prayer below.  God bless you as do so.

Steps to peace with God:  PRAYER

How to Pray:


Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Saviour. In Your Name.
Amen.


God's Assurance: His Word 
If you prayed this prayer, the Bible says ...

“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  
—Romans 10:13


May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ abide with you now and forever... Amen.
