Deliverance Is Of The LORD

“The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but deliverance is of the LORD.”

Proverbs 21:31

The battle is not 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.

Ephesians 6:12

Let us daily, put on our spiritual armor, knowing there’s no such thing as fear. It’s a tool of the devil. “Perfect love casts out fear.”  And trust God our Father; there’s always another way, always another answer.

I have Come as a Light into the Darkness

Jesus says in John 12:46

Lord Jesus, we need Your light, our Savior!  What a lot of darkness we face. You knew and You’ve prepared us, You told us everything we need to know, we love You and trust You.

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”

John 14:2 (KJV)

Dear Father, I’m Ready

Ready to do Your will; the sun came out amongst the clouds. You give hope because You are faithful, heard a lot about living last night.

Just to rest in You, Lord, and be around Christians. I feel so bright, renewed, hopeful.

Thank You Daddy, You’ve reaffirmed my walk with You since 2013.  Thank You for Your beauty everyday. And thank You for the prophetic dream of an opening door.  Thank You, God, Hallelujia

The Serenity Prayer

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Jesus in Matt 7:7

Praying in the park one morning for God’s thoughts and words to be my thoughts and words, this prayer plaque literally fell out of a nearby pine tree!  Face down, complete with pine sap, only 3 squirrels jumping & running were present.

Lord Jesus, release Your faith to us, so that we don’t hold back in trusting You for everything.

Great Is Its Fall

Jesus in Matthew 7:24-27:

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

Matthew 6:23:

“But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness.  If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

Dear Lord Jesus, we cling to You, the only truth.  Help us to grow toward You and live our lives with great faith (not great darkness)!

God’s Rebuke

Proverbs 1:23, (NKJV), “Turn at my rebuke; Surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.”

Psalm 104:7, “At Your rebuke they fled; At the voice of Your thunder they hastened away.”

Thank You for lovingly teaching us, Father. Let us worship and glorify You by hearing and obeying You.

“My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor detest His correction;
For whom the Lord loves He corrects,
Just as a father the son in whom he delights.” Prov 3:11-12

Psalm 73:

Verse 17, “Until I went into the sanctuary of God; Then I understood their end.”

Verses 23-24, “Nevertheless I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand. You will guide me with Your counsel, And afterward receive me to glory.”

Verse 28, “But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GodThat I may declare all Your works.”

 

“For Now”

God answers in my spirit.

  • tend a garden
  • recover from….?
  • work here
  • now you rest

“Reset” He told a friend, take a few days and unplug, listen to Him. Waiting on the Lord isn’t passive, it’s believing and trusting with all your heart.  Leaning not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5). Standing against the enemy with your shield of faith (Eph 6), refusing to back down from your belief in Jesus.

Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV), “But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.”

Psalm 25:3, “Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause.”

Psalm 27:14, “Wait on the Lord
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!”

Jesus talking:

Matthew 24:36, “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.”

John 14:27, “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.”
