The Prayerful Word - June 2

  • Psalm 25:7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to Thy mercy remember Thou me for Thy goodness' sake, O Lord.

    Isaiah 49:6 The Lord says, “I will give you as a light to the nations, that My salvation may reach to the end of the earth.”

    1 Thessalonians 5:14 …encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone.

    Zechariah 4:10 Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin,

    Romans 13:10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

    Zechariah 4:6 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts.

    May you come to the Lord in desperate humility, but not reluctantly, eagerly pushing forward to be in the forefront of all, confessing your unworthiness of, and acknowledging your dependence on, His grace, repenting of your shortcomings and asking forgiveness of your failures, admitting your guilt but relying on His acceptance even as you petition for His forgetfulness, seeking life even though deserving of death, for the King is known to be merciful. 2 Samuel 19

    May grace and forgiveness be more important to you, as it was to David, than retribution and revenge, as it was with the sons of Zeruiah, for meekness, strength in control, is the nature of Christ, but demonstration of power to make examples is the nature of the flesh. 2 Samuel 19

    May the presence of the Lord be of more value to you than possessions, as the favor and company of David was to Mephibosheth. 2 Samuel 19

    May you not compare your service with the service of others, as Judah and the tribes of Israel when bringing David back, but freely offer service to the Lord, as Barzillai did to David. 2 Samuel 19

    May you be certain that when you are most at a loss of what to do, and understand that you have no ways or answers for where to go next, that in the time of your own personal weakness and fruitlessness, you will then be best prepared to see the truth of the Lord and hear His Words of life, receiving blessing, strength, and comfort from His presence and acceptance as you obey His directions and follow His leading. John 21

    May you rejoice in the unity of God's Spirit that exists in the diversity of Christ's Body, for just as John first recognized Jesus on the shore, and Peter first reached Him from the boat, the others maintained the labor and brought the net's catch in with the vessels, each, in their difference of gifts and expressions, honoring Him Who created, shaped, and begifted them. John 21

    May you follow the Lord in what He has for you without concern or thought for how He directs others. John 21

    Remain ready, My child, and stay alert as you go out, even though you do not yet know where you are heading. Know, however, that you have not yet reached the city you are heading for, the place I have prepared for you.
    Rest easy in My promises, My faithful one, but keep your sword at hand and your cloak about you. Travel the way I lead you with confidence, but do not look for a place to put down roots, for there is not now any place without the uncleanness that brings painful destruction.
    Learn of Me in My Word, and hear of Me by My Spirit, not for the purpose of telling others what to do, but to walk out My truth and to experience My wisdom in your own life. As you make Me your Source, your Lord, your All, you will be instructing others by example, whom I have placed you in sight of, on the reality and practical expression of My grace, compassion, power, and mercy, which is available to them, as well.
    Since you are still in the process of laying hold of My prize, My calling, My purpose for your life, let go of all which lies behind, and keep stretching forward to reach that which I have shown you is waiting ahead. Make the preparation that My Spirit leads you to make, so that you may respond with alacrity and alertness when I send you forth, and give you assignments.
    Know, My willing one, that the old nature will always be present to battle against your willingness to follow My Spirit, and stay alert, prepared, forewarned, for in My Name, according to My Word, through the power of My Blood, as you yield to My Spirit, you will come off more than a conqueror.

    May you call on the Lord in your distress, for He will answer you and save you from liars and deceitful people. Psalm 120

    May you keep yourself from lies and deceit, for the Lord will suddenly punish those who continually love and constantly exercise a lying tongue with the piercingly-sharp arrows of heaven's judgment and the long-burning coals of God's anger. Psalm 120

    May you find more value in wisdom than gold, and direct your efforts to gaining insight instead of silver. Proverbs 16:16

    May you choose the path which upright and decent people follow, for it avoids and circumvents evil, and those who travel it safeguard their lives. Proverbs 16:17
