“…. Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name”… (Matthew 6:9 NKJV).

“When my father and my mother forsake me, Then the Lord will take care of me”.(Psalms 27:10 NKJV).

God is:

“A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation”. (Psalms 68:5 NKJV).

“As a father pities his children, So the Lord pities those who fear Him”. (Psalms 103:13 NKJV).

JUST  GIVE IT TO GOD

Have you given all your problems to the Lord?
1 Peter 5:7 (AMP)
Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him (The Lord Jesus Christ), for He (The Lord Jesus Christ) cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
Matthew 12:28-30 Jesus said:
28 Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and all of you shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

“Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble”. (Matthew 6:27‭-‬34 NKJV).

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things”. (Philippians 4:6‭-‬8 NKJV).
+In spite of all that we may be going through the Lord is still our Healer, Deliverer, Redeemer, Protector, Provider, and Burden Bearer.
+In Him we have Total Victory because He is our Victory. Hallelujah!

Don’t mind the things you are FACING just give your mind to the FACE of God.
Jeremiah 1:8
Be not afraid of their FACES: for I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD.
+We all are FACING different things and challenges. Don’t let the FACES of those things make you dismayed or afraid.
Numbers 6:25
The LORD make his FACE shine upon you, and be gracious unto you:
+As the Lord’s FACE shine upon you may you experience more manifestations of all that pertains to life and godliness in Christ Jesus our Lord.
+When the Lord’s FACE shining upon us means Salvation, Deliverance, Healing, Provisions, Protection, Prosperity, Good Success, Peace, Comfort, and Love, and MUCH MORE…
+The Lord makes His FACE to shine upon us in all things and in all the days of your life. Hallelujah!!!
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

HOW YOU SHOULD BE

“Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord , And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish”. (Psalms 1:1‭-‬6 NKJV).

““Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord , And whose hope is the Lord . For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit. “The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it? I, the Lord , search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings”. (Jeremiah 17:7‭-‬10 NKJV).

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—”(Ephesians 6:10‭-‬18 NKJV).

Don’t mind the things you are FACING just give your mind to the FACE of God.

POWER OF LIFE AND DEATH  IS IN THE TONGUE

“Speak death to sickness ,and diseases ;and life to good health . Why ? Because,God says,you can . “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit”. (Proverbs 18:21 NKJV).

“For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”(Matthew 12:37 NKJV).

“Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”(Matthew 12:34‭-‬37 NKJV).

“Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you”. (Ephesians 4:29‭-‬32 NKJV).

Speaking without OFFENCE?
+Let’s get this right by God’s standards.
+Our concerns should not be about offending man, but first foremost about not offending God.
+Therefore let us practice
Ephesians 4:15
…speaking the truth in love…
+What is speaking the truth in love? Speaking the truth in love is to speak with Love, in Truth, Holiness and righteousness.
James 3:2
For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect (or mature) man…
+To offend not in words is NOT to say the wrong thing, BUT to say the right thing in Love, Truth, Righteousness and Holiness.
+This is well pleasing unto the Lord. If man is offended while God is pleased don’t worry about it. God is your Rewarder and not man.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

WATCH YOUR THOUGHTS  

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God”. (Romans 12:2 NKJV).

We must Govern and Manag Our Thoughts
2 Corinthians 10:5 tells us ;
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
Proverb 23:7
For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…
+The thoughts we think, good or bad can eventually go from your minds (souls) to your heart (spirits) and then to our bodies, and also to other areas of our lives.
+Our thoughts can affect and have tremendous impact on us.
+Only think on things that are Good, Healthy and Positive. Think of the hinges that are of Love, Truth, Holiness, Righteousness and Faith Building.
Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are True, Honest, Just, Pure, Lovely, things that are of Good Report; if there be any Virtue, and if there be any Praise, think on these things.
+Remember thoughts can become beliefs, and beliefs can become a reality. Governing and Managing our thoughts is our Responsibility.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for our lives. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

RENEW YOUR  MIND

Why do people choose to dwell,and live in the negative ,things of their past, that hurt ,destroy , and scar them. Why don’t we do as the Apostle Paul said,

“Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus”.(Philippians 3:13‭-‬14 NKJV).

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. Do you look at things according to the outward appearance? If anyone is convinced in himself that he is Christ’s, let him again consider this in himself, that just as he is Christ’s, even so we are Christ’s”. (2 Corinthians 10:3‭-‬7 NKJV).

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God”. (Romans 12:2 NKJV).

King David ,puts it like this:

“But then I recall all you have done, O Lord; I remember your wonderful deeds of long ago. They are constantly in my thoughts. I cannot stop thinking about your mighty works.”(Psalm 77:11-12 NLT).

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are  noble, whatever things are  just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are  lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there  is any virtue and if there  is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things”. (Philippians 4:8 NKJV).

LISTEN  
Everyone has difficult days when things don’t go according to plan. These days can be frustrating and sometimes overwhelming. It’s during times like these that we have to be especially careful about what we think and say. The scripture tells us that our lives will go in the direction of our thoughts. Do you need to change your thoughts today?
I love what the psalmist wrote here in Psalm 77. He was facing immense challenges when he cried out to God and said, “You know what? I’m going to focus on what God has done for me. I’m going to dwell on His goodness. I will recall His deeds to mind.”
Today, don’t dwell on negative, self-defeating thoughts. Instead, recall His deeds to mind. Focus on what He’s done for you. Thank Him for the gift of life and salvation.

Make a list of all God’s wonderful blessings. Let your thoughts turn toward Him today and recall His wonderful deeds!

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit”.(Proverbs 18:21 NKJV). Just as how death, and life are in the power of the tongue ; death and life are in the power of your thoughts as well . The Bible  says ,  so as a man thinks  so is he.”For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…..”(Proverbs 23:7a NKJV).

Let’s pray:
“Almighty Father God in the name of Jesus through the Holy Spirit, Hallowed be your name, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as is in Heaven, I bless Your holy name today! Thank You for the gift of life both now and in eternity. Thank You for loving me and setting me free. Help me to keep my mind on Your good deeds in Jesus’ name I do pray and declare it all. Blessed are we and blessed we will always be and to our Lord Jesus Christ be all the Glory. Amen”
Praise the Lord as we pray for one another
Your brother in Christ Ricky,and Ozzie . 

PRAYER

Prayer goes where you cannot go,do what you cannot do,and give God access to move on your behalf .

WATCHFUL PRAYERS
Luke 21:36 Jesus said:
WATCH therefore, and PRAY ALWAYS…
+Also See Ephesians 6:18.
+Jesus never said to watch and talk about the problems and make criticisms.
+Pray for the faults and problems of others instead of talking about them and criticizing them.
+To criticize the faults and problems is to magnify them and to give the enemy more of an entrance to make matters worse.
+When we pray for the problems and faults of others it is called Intercessory Prayers.
+Through our Intercessory Prayers God divinely intervenes and make things better, and on the same token we are slamming the door shut in the enemy’s face.
+PRAYERS SOLVE PROBLEMS!!!
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for our lives. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED we are and BLESSED we will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!!!
