SUPERNATURAL PROTECTION

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord , “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord , who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”(Psalms 91:1‭-‬16 NKJV).

FORGIVEN BECAUSE  OF  JESUS  

“My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world. Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked”. (1 John 2:1‭-‬6 NKJV).

“Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together”.(Romans 8:12‭-‬17 NKJV).

The Righteousness of GOD
2 Corinthians 5:21 tells us,
For He (God) has made HIM (Jesus) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that wemight be made the righteousness of God in him (Jesus).
Then in Romans 3:22,it says,
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe…
However, 2 Peter 1:1 says this,
…to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Savior Jesus Christ:
-Do not argue about righteousness with anyone.
-God alone establishes righteousness that is true and holy.
-When you received Jesus as your Savior and Lord you became the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!

GIVE IT ALL TO GOD

“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord , “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land; But if you refuse and rebel, You shall be devoured by the sword”; For the mouth of the Lord has spoken”.(Isaiah 1:18‭-‬20 NKJV).

Heb 4:16
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
+++God sits on The Throne of Grace. He is Gracious and Merciful unto us.
+++GRACE is God’s unmerited favor and kindness towards us. Grace gives us the goodness of God which we did not deserve and His MERCY spears us from the punishment we did deserve.
+++As long as we did not blasphemed against the Holy Spirit, God will always forgive us of all our repented sins and iniquities. We may feel shame, regret and remorse but never feel condemned.
Rom 8:1
THERE is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus…
Jer 31:34
…for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
Ps 107:1
O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!

GOD KEEPS HIS COVENANT

“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.”(II Corinthians 1:20‭-‬22 NKJV).

We all face situations that look permanent, in our health, our relationships, our career. It’s easy to think that’s the way it will always be. It may look permanent to us, but the good news is it’s not permanent to God. God doesn’t allow you to get into anything that He can’t bring you out of.

REMEMBER THAT NOTHING,can separate you from God’s love.
Romans 8:35-39.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Victory is Yours
+Do not let challenges and disappointments make you quit.
+Every setback is a setup for a comeback.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9 AMP
8 We are pressured in every way [hedged in], but not crushed; perplexed [unsure of finding a way out], but not driven to despair;
9 hunted down and persecuted, but not deserted [to stand alone]; struck down, but never destroyed.
Romans 8:37 AMP
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain the overwhelming victory through Him (Christ Jesus) who loved us [so much that He died for us].
+Amen! And Hallelujahs to Jesus!!!
•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!

WAITING  RENEWS YOUR STRENGTH

GOD DOESN’T WANT YOU TO GIVE UP. SO…

“let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful”.(Hebrews 10:22‭-‬23 NKJV).

Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord ; Lord, hear my voice! Let Your ears be attentive To the voice of my supplications. If You, Lord , should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But there is forgiveness with You, That You may be feared. I wait for the Lord , my soul waits, And in His word I do hope. My soul waits for the Lord More than those who watch for the morning— Yes, more than those who watch for the morning. O Israel, hope in the Lord ; For with the Lord there is mercy, And with Him is abundant redemption. And He shall redeem Israel From all his iniquities”. (Psalms 130:1‭-‬8).

Question: “What does it mean to wait on the Lord?”
Waiting on the Lord involves the confident expectation of a positive result in which we place a great hope—a hope that can only be realized by the actions of God. This expectation must be based on knowledge and trust, or we simply won’t wait. Those who do not know the Lord will not wait on Him; neither will those who fail to trust Him. We must be confident of who God is and what He is capable of doing. Those who wait on the Lord do not lose heart in their prayers: “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us” (1 John 5:14).
Waiting on the Lord renews our strength (Isaiah 40:31). Prayer and Bible study and meditating upon God’s Word are essential. To wait on the Lord we need a heart responsive to the Word of God, a focus on the things of heaven, and a patience rooted in faith.
We should not despair when God tarries long in His response, but continue to patiently wait on Him to work on our behalf. The reason God sometimes waits a long time to deliver is to extend the goodness of the final outcome. “Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him” (Isaiah 30:18, ESV).

We are in Authority and Power with Jesus;therefore we have the strength to wait.
Ephesians 6:1-24 (Read all)Verse 10 says: Finally, my brethren, be STRONG in the Lord, and in the POWER of his MIGHT.
+Notice the Word of God didn’t say to GET STRONG in the Lord, but instead it says to BE STRONG in the Lord.
+Get Strong means that we are not Strong so we have to go and get Strong.
+Be Strong means that we are already STRONG in the Lord, and all we have to do is to function like it.
+After all Psalm 27:1 says that the Lord is the Strength of our lives. Hallelujah!
+Today let’s accept this TRUTH by Faith in Christ Jesus and step out in Faith knowing that God is the STRENGTH of our lives. Amen!
•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!

GOD KEEPS HIS PROMISES

“Don’t Give Up On God, His Word, and His Promises
+Many of us have been waiting PATIENTLY for PROMISES of God to materialize or manifest in our lives, but why are the promises taking so long.
+The promises of God are First Spiritual, and they are already given to us.
Ephesians 1:3 states:
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who HAS BLESSED us with ALL SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS in heavenly places in Christ:

2 Peter 1:3 tells us that,
“According as his divine power hath given unto us ALL THINGS THAT PERTAIN unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee”.(II Corinthians 1:20‭-‬22 NKJV).

+We MUST REALIZE that God has already given us His BLESSINGS.
+By FAITH we must DECLARE that we have the BLESSINGS and thank Him for it.
Job 22:28
You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established for you…
Mark 11:23-24
…you shall have whatsoever you SAY…

LISTEN
+Our God is Eternally Faithful to His Word, and to the fulfillment of all His promises.
Matthew 24:35
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Isaiah 55:11
So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
+God’s Promises in His Word are sent to us. Once we receive the Word of God with Faith it will not return to God Void, but it will accomplish and establish the Promises of God in our lives. 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!

TRUE WORSHIPPERS

“You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. BUT THE HOUR IS COMING, AND NOW IS, WHEN THE TRUE WORSHIPERS WILL WORSHIP THE FATHER IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. GOD IS SPIRIT, AND THOSE WHO WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH.”(John 4:22‭-‬24 NKJV).

YOU ARE ALPHA AND OMEGA; I WORSHIP YOU OH LORD. YOU ARE WORTHY TO BE PRAISED. I GIVE YOU ALL THE GLORY,AND I GIVE YOU ALL THE PRAISE, I WORSHIP YOU MY LORD; BECAUSE, YOU ARE WORTHY TO BE PRAISE.

“Make a joyful shout to the Lord , all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord , He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name”.(Psalms 100:1‭-‬4 NKJV).

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”(Psalm 91:1, NKJV).
Every one of us should have a secret place in our relationship with God, an inner sanctuary where you don’t allow everything in. You guard your secret place against any worry, offense, bitterness, or trouble that may behappening on the outside. You don’t let that into the inner sanctuary of your heart. Your secret place should be a place of hope, of peace, of rest, of faith.
If you’re allowing everything into your secret place—what they said, what didn’t work out, the stress, the traffic, the hurt—it will become contaminated. It will affect your attitude, your relationships, your vision, and you’ll live feeling frustrated, upset, and worried. Quit giving negative things so much attention, reliving the hurt, thinking about the offense, dwelling on the disappointment. Don’t bring that close to your heart. It doesn’t belong in your secret place. The good news is, you control that door. You can’t stop the storm around you, but you can stop the storm from getting in you.

Psalm 100:4 tells us how to worship God.
“Enter into His gates with Thanksgiving, And into His courts with Praise. Be Thankful to Him, and bless His Name”.
+How Thankful are unto the Lord?
+We enter our Lord’s courts with praise.
+Thanksgiving, Praise and Worship are not the same, but they work very well together when ministering unto the Lord.
+Thanksgiving is showing appreciation, gratitude and thankfulness to God for what He has done for us.
+Praise is acknowledging all of God’s Attributes.
+Worship is to put God Before and Above everyone and everything, and live the lifestyle that bears the Fruits of that Worship.
•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!

GOD PROVIDES

Good times and good things are coming your way.
Psalm 23:6
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…
Psalm 107:8-9
8 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
9 For he satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.
+Remember this as things are about to get better for you.
Hebrews 10:35
Cast not away therefore your confidence (in God), which has great recompence of reward.
Malachi 3:6
For I am the LORD, I change not…
Hebrews 13:8
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
+Let your soul rejoice and say, my God is Good all the time, and all the time my God is Good.
Hallelujahs to Jesus!
•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!

Look Ahead

I am looking forward to leaving 2020 behind.

“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).

Haven’t you noticed? We are living in perilous times,where people are lovers of self, more than lovers of God.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him”.(II Corinthians 5:17‭-‬21 NKJV).

HOWEVER; NO MATTER THE TIMES WE ARE LIVING IN.

We Have Liberty, and Freedom In Christ Jesus our Lord.
As Galatians 5:1 advices us:
Stand fast therefore in the LIBERTY wherewith Christ has made us FREE, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
John 8:36
If the Son therefore shall make you FREE, all of you shall be FREE indeed.
But now being made FREE from sin, and become servants to God, all of you have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
Romans 8:2
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me FREE from the law of sin and death.
•Reminding you that in Christ Jesus you are FREE from sin, sickness, disease, poverty and from the enemy (Satan).
•Declare, Proclaim, Profess and Confess your freedom from all these things in the Almighty Name of Jesus Christ! And by faith purpose to accept it live like it.
•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!!!

PEACE  THAT BAFFLES THE MIND

Do you want peace? What does peace mean to you? Is it the absence of trouble , bills ,or anything that disturbs your flow and peace of mind. Is that really peace? When Jesus told us in John 16:33; that in the world you will have tribulation ,but we should be of good cheer for He has overcome the world .

This simple means,that when all hell is breaking loose ,we can be at peace .

How ? It’s simple ,do as He said, in Isaiah 26:3;”You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You”.

Then He tells us in Philippians 4: 6-9; “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. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you”.

Before ,Jesus depart from Earth He said , “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid”; (John 14:27).

REMEMBER

You have the Peace of God in your heart and in your mind. What is peace ?
PEACE: quietness with rest, calm and tranquility.
Philippians 4:7
And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
John 14:27 Jesus said:
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
-The peace of God in your life keeps you from worries, keeps you from being troubled, and to keeps you from being fearful.
-Do not allow yourself to be agitated and disturbed.
-Do not permit yourself to be fearful, intimidated, cowardly and unsettled.
-Settle and rest yourself in the Peace of God.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
