The Prayerful Word - March 28

  • Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

    Isaiah 43:19 The Lord says, “I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”

    Isaiah 53:5 But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed.

    1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.

    John 14:21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me; and he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him, and will disclose Myself to him.

    Psalm 37:23-24 The steps of a man are established by the Lord… 24 When he falls, he shall not be hurled headlong; because the Lord is the One who holds his hand.

    May you be assured today that the Lord your God is the one who goes ahead of you like a devouring fire and will destroy and subdue the enemies in the land before you; then, you will drive them out and annihilate them quickly, as the Lord has promised, and commanded, you. Deuteronomy 9

    May you be clear on the fact that the Lord is going to drive out these “nations,” these powers, before you from the inheritance He has promised you because of their wickedness, and not because of your own righteousness or integrity, but through the work of, the striving by, and the victory in, Jesus. Deuteronomy 9

    May you remember that the Lord your God asks nothing of you but to fear Him, to walk in all His ways, to love Him, to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul, and to observe the Lord's commands and decrees for your own good. Deuteronomy 10

    May you daily recall that to the Lord your God belong the heavens, the earth, and everything in it, and yet has set His affection on you, and loved you, and chose you, therefore circumcise your heart by submitting to His discipline and do not resist the leading and prompting of the Spirit, for the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, Who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes, defends the cause of the fatherless and widow, and loves the alien, he who is not yet a citizen, giving him food and clothing, and calls you to show the same love to those who are in the same situation you once were. Deuteronomy 10

    May you fear the Lord your God and serve Him, holding fast to Him for He is your praise and He is your God Who performed for you great and awesome wonders in drawing you to Himself and redeeming you as He revealed His salvation to you. Deuteronomy 10

    May you have a good and noble heart to hear the Word of God, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop for harvest to the glory and praise of God. Luke 8

    May you hear God's word and put it into practice so that you may be considered part of the family of God. Luke 8

    My child, hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your reward, for I am coming quickly.
    The days will soon be hard, and times difficult, but I hear your prayers and am meeting your needs. Fight the good fight, even as you have been; continue standing firm, holding the ground I have given you.
    I have warned you of what is to come, and called you to prepare by drawing close to Me, receiving of the Spirit the engrafted Word and the fragrant anointing oil which will sustain you in the heat of the battle.
    Hear Me when I speak to you of your weaknesses, when I bring circumstances to reveal what is in your heart. This is not to condemn you for what you cannot change, but for you to realize that you cannot stand in or rely on your own strength and resources.
    It would be useless for you to strive early and labor late unless it is at the things I have assigned you and have placed My favor upon. But when you sow righteousness, you receive righteousness; when you sow mercy, you will receive mercy.
    Though the enemy attacks nowhere as savagely as at those who stand closest to Me, where else can you be so safe as under My wings of loving care? My grace makes the fearful brave, the bruised reed strong and causes a smoking flax about to go out to flame like the altar which consumes the flesh given in sacrifice. Though you be timid, you will become bold as a lion when My Spirit empowers you.
    Wait on Me, My warrior, hold what you have been given, and wait for My command, for in My timing, by your obedience, the victory I have given you the vision of will be accomplished.
    Faithful obedience, which is not the understanding of the intellect but the deliberate commitment to Me, will win the day.

    Though you are in pain and distress, may the salvation of God protect you. Psalm 69

    May you praise God's name in song and glorify Him with thanksgiving for this freewill gift from your heart will please the Lord more than you giving of your possessions, which came from Him to begin with. Psalm 69

    May your heart live as you seek God, though you are poor and needy, for the Lord will hear you and does not despise His captive people. Psalm 69

    May heaven and earth praise God, as well as the seas and all that move in them, for God will perform what He has promised, and His will, which is settled in heaven eternally and is firmly established on earth, will endure forever, and His people will rest in His blessing to enjoy it, they will receive His gifts, and those who love His name will abide in His presence. Psalm 69

    May you obtain favor from the Lord as a good man does, rather than be condemned by Him as is a crafty man. Proverbs 12:2

    May you be solidly grounded and deeply rooted in the Lord, as the righteous are, so that you cannot be removed or uprooted, for no one can be established through wickedness. Proverbs 12:3
