The Prayerful Word - May 18

  • John 14:6  Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
    Philippians 4:13  [Paul wrote,] “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”
    Isaiah 26:3  Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee.
    1 Peter 2:9  But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.
    Psalm 84:11  No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
    Psalm 36:8  They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, and You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures.
    May your heart be as the heart of David, who felt the pain of others when he heard of the death of the priests at Nod, and not like the heart of Saul, who only felt anger when others did not agree with him. 1 Samuel 22
    May God send you a friend in the midst of your troubles and distress that will bring the comfort and strength of God to your heart, and renew your dedication to the Lord, pointing you to Him as your Defender, Redeemer, Source, and Master. 1 Samuel 23
    May you find and enjoy the security of the Lord as the gate for His sheep, and may you learn and follow the voice of the Lord as the shepherd of His flock, for He will defend you from the attacking wolf, and has laid down His life for you, giving you life, abundant and full. John 10
       Pray, My child, at whatever cost is required to do so. 
       Turn your heart to Me daily, hourly, continually, and let your voice follow your heart, for as you speak to Me, regularly, familiarly, intimately, you will find that you speak for Me to others who are being sought by Me. 
       Even the world understands that if you walk among and associate with wise men, you will be wise; how much more true it is, then, that if you devote time to spend in My presence, it will transform you. 
       Bit by bit, you will find, springing up from within you, living water flowing out to transform the desert wilderness of your soul into the promised land of the kingdom of God, as you find yourself imitating and demonstrating the nature of God, responding to circumstances and people differently than you used to. By abiding in My presence, and allowing My Spirit to work in you, the fullness of the Godhead will be available to make you complete in Me. 
       Can you imagine becoming aware of the incredible awesomeness of the riches of My spiritual treasures and the amazing magnitude of the power of My resurrection which releases the victory of life in all aspects of your daily walk? Is there any way, then, that your heart could be prevented from pouring forth praises for Who I am? Is there any power that could stop your lips from bursting forth in worship of the One Who so freely and liberally emptied Himself to redeem and sanctify you? 
       Since I dwell in the praises of My people, let the intent of your will give direction to the meditation of your heart, swelling into the thoughts of your mind and giving voice to the words of your mouth, to be confirmed by the deeds of your hands and the steps of your feet, so that your life will give glory to the Father, Who is fully deserving of all acclaim. 
       He Who is the blessed and only Sovereign, eternal, immortal, invisible, dwelling in unapproachable light, seated on His throne, possessing life eternal, has placed all the attributes of the Godhead at your disposal. It is His will and pleasure to give you such great promises, precious and magnificent, allowing you to become partakers of My divine nature. Through His Word and His Spirit, He gives you enlightenment to escape the corruption of lust that is in the world, if you hold fast the beginning of your assurance firm to the end. 
       So remain loyal to the Father that He can use you even as He used Me. 
    May you give all glory to the name of the Lord because of His love and faithfulness. Psalm 115
    May you not be like those who worship what their hands have made, lifeless images made of silver or gold, for those who make them will be like them, as will all who trust in them. Psalm 115
    May you fear the Lord and trust in Him, for He is your help and shield; He remembers you and will bless you, small and great alike. Psalm 115
    May you be patient and cool-tempered, slow to anger and in control of yourself that you may appease strife and calm disputes, extinguishing the contention that a hot-tempered person starts. Proverbs 15:18
    May the Lord make your path obvious and your way an open, level highway, as He does for the just and the upright, rescuing them from the hedge of briers and patch of thorns that the sluggard and slothful face. Proverbs 15:19
