The Prayerful Word - March 9

  • Matthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

    Romans 3:9-10 What shall we conclude then? Are we any better? Not at all! We have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under sin.

    Titus 3:4-6 But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, 5 He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior.

    Galatians 1:4 Who gave (yielded) Himself up [to atone] for our sins [and to save and sanctify us], in order to rescue {and} deliver us from this present wicked age {and} world order, in accordance with the will {and} purpose {and} plan of our God and Father--

    Romans 3:10-12 There is no one righteous, not even one; 11 there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. 12 All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one

    Jeremiah 29:13 You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

    May you be confident in the unity of the Spirit, that all members of Christ's Body, when ministering as they have been gifted by God and motivated by His love for one another, will speak the same Word, lifting up Jesus and making much of Him. Numbers 11

    May you realize that wherever you are, when God pours out His anointing, placing His unction upon you, that it will be as unstoppable as a fire in your bones, and you will speak His Word in prayer, praise, and preaching, encouraging and exhorting, prophesying as you are moved by the Spirit of God. Numbers 11

    May you be satisfied with God's provision and trusting in His care for you, not desiring again the experiences you came out of or despising what God brings you into, for though you may get your desire, it will bring leanness to your soul. Numbers 11

    May you seek the Lord for the work He has for you and diligently apply yourself to it, not desiring the attention or the praise that others receive or seeking to appear greater by belittling fellow-laborers, lest the Lord set you aside for a time of solitary contemplation of your motives. Numbers 12

    May you give a good report to the people of God when speaking of the promises of God. Numbers 13

    May you not view your circumstances as the people who have no hope view them through self-knowledge of your own resources and capabilities, but rather let the Word of God dwell richly in your heart and your mind, applying His promises by faith in the situation and see the issues from the perspective of eternity, understanding that if God be for you, who can stand against you? Numbers 13

    I have commanded you, My child, but with that command I have also provisioned you. I have directed you in what you are to do, but with that directive I have also equipped you.
    I make great demands on you, My dear one, greater than you can accomplish, but I have given you the one thing necessary to see it through: My promise to go with you. So, in the knowledge of My integrity and My power, be strong and of good courage as you step forth in obedience.
    In the faith and assurance that comes from your experience and the testimony of others, do not be afraid of what you will face or dismayed by what you will need to do for I, the Lord your God, will be with you wherever you go. It will not be by your own authority that you possess the kingdom, but Mine, and it will not be by your own arm that you are saved, but by Mine, for the light of My presence will be with you because My favor is upon you.
    Only those things that I direct you in will last, and only those things that you obey Me in will succeed. Though you labor, if I am not there, the work will fall; though you watch, unless I am your defense, the enemy will slip in unseen.
    First, come, My loved one, into My gates bringing thanksgiving, and enter My courts bearing praise. Draw near Me with worship as you turn your eyes upon the One Who loves you more than life, and see the purity of His beauty. Let your lips express the words of adoration that My Spirit will bring to your heart, and let the hymns of love and loyalty rise with those of the heavenly hosts as you consider the arm of strength that shields you from harm and the arm of endearment that en-wraps you with tenderness.
    Do you see how your fear dissolves in the light of My love? Do you feel how your anxiety melts in the warmth of My embrace? Of what value are riches, which will be lost, if they draw you from Me? Of what benefit is the favor of the world, which is fickle, if it separates you from My tenderness?
    Go forth on the assignments I give you, remaining sheltered under My loving wings, for I go with you in all that I send you to do.
