Tuesday Prayer 1/30/2018

Hello everyone! This is the first Tuesday prayer. Thank you so much for being patient with me. I had doubts about the change but I’m so excited and blessed for your support.

Here is this week’s prayer. Hope you all have a blessed week!

God,

Thank you for allowing me to wake up this morning with Joy and peace. Thank you for revealing your love and grace to me. Thank you for being unconditional in your gratitude and nurture through this phase of my life.

I pray for the strength to live bold in faith and not by sight. As I transition to the next phase in my life, I pray that everything I do glorifies your holy name. Let my character and integrity continue to uphold the Christian standard. If there is anything I need to change – let it be done.

I pray to continue to develop the fruits of the holy spirit. Let me find my identity in Christ and not of this world. I want your light to shine in all areas of my life. I surrender everything so that you will have the final say so in all problems or fears I may have.

Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth how it is done in heaven. In Jesus name -Amen

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. The law is not against such things.

Galatians 5:22-23

Jesus Had a Favorite Book?

After doing my morning prayer, I began searching for bible scriptures. Somehow I became fascinated with the book Deuteronomy. What a coincidence! I figure out that this was Jesus most quoted old testament reference.

Deuteronomy was written by moses once he helped free the slaves. The book was a set of laws given so everyone could live their best life.

Once Jesus began to develop in his spiritual gifts, he went into the wilderness for isolation. Satan tempted Jesus, but he used this Old Testament book to make him flee.

  • But he answered, “It is written, ‘Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ Matthew 4:4

  • Jesus said to him, “Once again it is written: ‘You are not to put the Lord your God to the test.’”  Matthew 4:7

  • Then Jesus said to him, “Go away, Satan! For it is written: ‘You are to worship the Lord your God and serve only him.’” Matthew 4:10

How amazing is it Jesus used the Old Testament for power? But oh – it get’s better. Jesus Used this book to make clear the most important commandment of them all.

You must love the Lord your God with your whole mind, your whole being, and all your strength Deuteronomy 6:5

Why is it important to love the God with all of you heart? If he made everything can’t we love other things first?

When you trust and love God – he will give you a peace through any situation. You don’t have to understand or worry about the next phase in your life because it will already be taken care.

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

So I think it’s safe to say this one of Jesus’s favorite Old Testament books.

The Prince of Peace

Isaiah is named “one of the most powerful books in the old testament.” Hardships and trouble have become part of the norm. With kingdoms in turmoil, a prophet wrote Isaiah to give people hope.

For a child will be born for us, a son will be given to us,
and the government will be on his shoulders. He will be named
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:5-7

Lets break down each thing:

Wonderful Counselor : a person who gives advice. Jesus was going to guide people out of trouble and help fix their lives.

Mighty God: Not only was he going to lead them out of trouble -it was through the greatest source. Before God’s child was sent – there were only temporary fixes. When God gives a gift – it is everlasting.

“Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and your instruction is true.” Psalm 119:142

Eternal Father: Not only was he the savior’s father – he is an “infinite” father. Everything is his child. Because we are all sons and daughters he bless and take care of us. No matter who our earth parents are he is the highest parent.

Prince of Peace : In the New Testament was given a beautiful name : Jesus

What a mighty God we serve. He can deliver us from anything and call us his own. No matter the situation – he will keep his promise and deliver us from any evil.

Bible Verses for Overcoming Challenges

Your life is priceless.  Your are special. You matter. You have special gifts and qualities. Wipe away the doubt and tears. Put on your game face and conquer life.

Now when you go out for the day remember this:

10 Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by his vast strength. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this darkness, against evil, spiritual forces in the heavens. 13 For this reason take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having prepared everything, to take your stand.  Ephesians 6:13

Don’t be afraid.  Those who follow Jesus are given peace and strength to conquer the world.

27 “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Don’t let your heart be troubled or fearful. Isaiah 41:10

You got this – the lord is your strength. The power of God can conquer all.

Indeed, God is my salvation; I will trust him and not be afraid, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is my strengthand my song. He has become my salvation.” Psalm 18:2

Remember – if you fight according to God’s will and purpose for your life, you will always have victory.

Now I know that the Lord gives victory to his anointed;
he will answer him from his holy heaven
with mighty victories from his right hand. Psalm 20:6

 

Here is a prayer I want to leave off with

God thank you for giving grace and the spirit to serve you.

I pray that you would protect me and guard my heart from anything that is not of you

I pray that everyone reading this will have peace and fulfilling joy

Please let them know they are worthy of your love and mercy for their lives

Let everything go well for them .

Any doubt or fears they may have I pray they conquer it by the mighty name of Jesus 

And I pray as they go through the day they are given constant reminders of your faithful heart 

In Jesus Name

Amen

God Loves You

Maybe you know and just need a reminder. Maybe you are doing your own thing and no one ever told you. I am writing this to you today to let you know God loves you.

You are so special. You were not a mistake. You created with perfect design. Every detail about you is known by the father. He loves you no matter how far you think you messed up.

See what great love[a] the Father has given us that we should be called God’s children—and we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it didn’t know him. 1 John 3:1

When I was in the world, it was hard to understand I had a father in heaven. “A parent in heaven loves me? Why has bad things happen to me?”

We have free will to do what ever we want. Just like a hot stove there are consequences to everything.

A good parent allows their children to learn some things on their own in order for them to mature and grow. I promise you God is always there with you. He will not let you endure anything you were not equipped to handle. 

“Some things were out of my control especially as a child – that doesn’t make any sense.”

20 You planned evil against me; God planned it for good to bring about the present result—the survival of many people. Genesis 50:20

It’s true that there are evil forces in the world that don’t mean well for your life. Sometimes things just happen.

I realized when I come out of hard situations – I can use those testimony’s to help other seek Jesus.  Sharing our stories with others in the body of Christ creates a community that pleases God. When we stand together against the enemy – we are honoring God’s will.

Know that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps his gracious covenant loyalty for a thousand generations with those who love him and keep his commands. Deuteronomy 7:9

No matter what this world has going on. We must stay close to a God that will keep us in perfect peace through good and bad times. God’s faithfulness gives his believers everything they need to leave a productive life.

I challenge you to talk to your creator. It doesn’t matter what you say – just get the communication going. Watch him unfold in your life. Here is a starter prayer to help:

“God I want to know your true everlasting love. Somethings may not be perfect in my life but I am coming to you in faith to ask you to show me who you are. I want to know more about you and your son Jesus Christ. I want to know what being your child feels like. Please show me your grace and mercy. I want your will to be done in my life the way it is done in heaven. In Jesus name Amen.”
