The Prayerful Word - July 5

  • Psalm 33:18 Behold, the eye of Jehovah is upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His lovingkindness;

    Isaiah 40:31 …those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

    Deuteronomy 11:2 Remember today what you have learned about the Lord through your experiences with Him. It was you, not your children, who had these experiences. You saw the Lord’s greatness, His power, His might,

    Philippians 1:6 God began doing a good work in you, and I am sure He will continue it until it is finished when Jesus Christ comes again.

    2 Corinthians 5:7 For we live by faith, not by sight.

    Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

    May you rejoice and be thankful for God's keeping and sustaining power throughout all history to have brought you to this time and place where you can know Christ in the power of His resurrection and be allowed a part in His work of the harvest. 1 Chronicles 1

    May you see clearly that God has created all nations of one blood since we all have one father, giving us all the same inheritance of enmity with God and causing the same need for redemption, which He has made available for us to freely share. 1 Chronicles 2

    May the Lord stand beside you, when circumstances are the bleakest, and bring you encouragement, direction, and assurance. Acts 23

    May you not be surprised when, under the guise of tradition, people are influenced against you by the powers of darkness and the forces of wickedness as you follow the path the Lord sets before you, but know that He will make a way, providing a solution for you to use. Acts 23

    Even though the lives and hearts of all men are already in God's hand, may you be blessed as you willingly put your trust in Him and purposefully commit your ways to Him. Acts 23

    Know Me for yourself, My child, and learn of Me through My Spirit and My Word. Though you hear of Me by the deeds and the speech of others so that faith may come, do not settle for second-hand reports as your primary source.
    Let faith arise in your heart and impel you to seek for Me yourself, searching the Scriptures on your own, studying to see if what others have said is correct. My Word testifies of Me, and My Spirit in your heart bears witness of My truth, just as the deeds done in My name bring glory to Me.
    Let Me not be merely the God of your fathers, or the Lord of your brothers, or the Savior of your neighbors. Answer the draw on your heart that these make to you; follow the tug in your spirit at each level. Move from each plateau into new territory as I make Myself known to you time and time again in new and different ways, with fresh expressions of Who I am, and Who I want to be in your life, to meet long-standing needs and end long-running battles.
    Do not let lukewarmness settle in by accepting the report of others with complacency and permitting distance to cool your zeal and ardor. Press in to know, seek to find, pray to learn how I would show Myself to you in richer and deeper ways, using you in new areas – not for the sake of novelty and change, but to meet needs that have persistently resisted My will.
    It does not mean that I have not the power or abundance to meet those needs, My dear one; it means that no one has sought Me with the willingness of heart and the burden of spirit to know Me in the way that will express My love and demonstrate My servanthood to overcome that stronghold. My victories come through death and loss to the flesh in the world and material realm, My precious one. The one who lays down his life for the sake of others is the one who will see My power bring life into the situation that was impossible for man.
    Will you seek Me in the spirit to know Me in the truth of Who I desire to be in your life unto others?

    May you cry aloud to the Lord, Who will answer you from His holy hill, regardless of how many foes rise up against you claiming God will not deliver you, for He is a shield around you and He bestows His glory on you, lifting up your head. Psalm 3

    May you lie down to sleep and rest, not fearing the tens of thousands of worrisome thoughts and endless imaginings that are drawn up against you on every hand, because when you wake again, you will find that the Lord has sustained you with His power and kept you in His Spirit. Psalm 3

    May the blessing of the Lord be upon you for deliverance from all spiritual wickedness, for He will arise against those principalities attacking you, striking them and breaking their power by stopping their lies. Psalm 3

    May the Spirit of God, which heals your body, bring strength and restoration to your heart and mind, making you whole. Proverbs 18:14

    May your ear be attuned to, and open for, the wisdom of the Lord, even as your heart and mind is hungry for, and receptive to, the knowledge and understanding of God. Proverbs 18:15
