The Prayerful Word - July 10

  • Isaiah 43:1 Now says the Lord,… Don’t fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine.

    Mark 10:49 And Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” And they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take heart. Get up; He is calling you.”

    Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

    Zephaniah 3:17 The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in His love He will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.

    James 1:4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

    Psalm 42:5 Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him for the help of His presence.

    May you be faithful in the work God assigns you, as you actively participate in the ministry of the Lord. 1 Chronicles 9

    May you value the diversity of ministry among the Body of Christ, encouraging and strengthening the hands and hearts of each who minister in the Lord's sanctuary, by day and by night. 1 Chronicles 9

    May you wait upon the Lord, seeking His will and obeying His guidance, that you may be delivered from unbelief, impatience, and despair, obtaining a kingdom that cannot be moved. 1 Chronicles 10

    May you be faithful to the Lord and keep His Word, rejecting guidance from any but those who treasure His presence and walk in His ways, meditating on His truth. 1 Chronicles 10

    Feed My lambs, My child. Let My little ones, My young ones, My weak ones, draw sustenance from you even as you draw strength from Me. I have blessed you with every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies, My precious one, and you have want of nothing dear to life. My Spirit makes My Word life to your heart, filling you with rich wisdom and treasured understanding beyond measure. Your cup is running over with abundance beyond your need.
    The Father has given Me a Name above every name and seated Me at His right hand because I was faithful in sharing with those He gave Me, holding nothing back that they needed; with the measure I meted out the Father measured back to Me, and even more. This was done so that you may have an example to follow.
    Pay attention to how you hear what the Spirit has to say. If you listen and heed what you hear, sharing and not hoarding, you will gain more understanding. If you do not give that which I have already given you to those I bring to you, even what you have will be taken away.
    I distribute My gifts as I will, irrevocably, but My anointing is poured out fresh each day, and My leading and direction is moment by moment. To have My Spirit lift and leave because of selfishness, pride, or fear, is to be without power or direction, of all people most miserable.
    I consider those who consider Me, My loving one. As you look after My little children, I look after you. As you water the seeds of My Word that are sown, I will make a watered garden of your soul–flourishing, flowering, fragrant, fruitful. As you draw the water from your well, there will always be a fresh supply even in the driest season or the deepest drought when others only bring up mud in their bucket.
    Do not try to meet the needs of others from yourself, My enthusiastic one. Wait in My presence, for that is where you receive not only My supply but also My directions. Seek My face, hear My voice, know My heart.
    You will see the one I am drawing today, and My Spirit will guide you to the field that is ripe. Much harm is done when an eager harvester starts cutting in a field where the grain is still green.
    Wait on My direction, serving Me in praise and worship. Go forth when I direct you and speak what I have given you, feeding My lambs, encouraging My people, strengthening feeble hands, healing afflicted bodies, binding up broken hearts. Preach the acceptable year, and the soon coming, of the Lord.

    When you are in a storm with others, may you encourage them by the expression of your faith and the demonstration of your trust in God's promises. Acts 27

    May you cheerfully rest in faith on the promises of God, letting your hope in the Lord serve as an anchor in the storm, reassured in the confidence of a clean conscience before Him and knowing that no circumstances can prevent the work from being completed which God has called you to do. Acts 27

    May you trust God to order the events as you remain faithful in the duty you are given, that the joy of the Lord will work life and peace in the greatest distresses and dangers. Acts 27

    May you show forth the praises of your God and King, proclaiming the majesty of His name in all the earth, and His glory above the heavens, for the Lord has ordained strength and built a fortress against the avenger and enemy of His will. Psalm 8

    May you be blessed with the knowledge of your spiritual poverty, helplessness and inadequacy, for your need of God's mercy and compassion will keep you safe from the harsh arrogance of those who feel they are self-sufficient. Proverbs 18:23
