‘Come and Join Me in God’s Word’ – Jesus Prayed

Matthew 11:25-26 NLT At the time Jesus prayed this prayer: “O Father, Lord of heaven and earth thank You for hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever, and for revealing them to the childlike. Yes, Father, it pleased You to do it this way!

Our heavenly Father reveals to us who Jesus Christ is through the Holy Spirit of God. We must follow Jesus’ example and pray to the Father as He did. Jesus dedicated His whole life praying to our Father, and He did not do anything unless He consulted His Father first. We must also consult Him too. We find teachings we need through Scripture and in the supernatural power of the Spirit of God. We need to come to God with a childlike faith and trust Him to do things in His will and way. God has the authority over everything and has the authority over us.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You for showing us how to pray through the Holy Spirit of God. Thank You that we can have faith in Your precious Son, Jesus Christ; to show us the Way, the Truth, and the Life. We praise and bless You for all Your teachings, and thank You for revealing to us in a childlike faith, how to lean, rely, depend upon the Holy Spirit of God to follow You in wisdom and faith, understanding Your ways are the only way we should walk in the name of Jesus  Christ. Amen

‘Come and Join Me in God’s Word’ – God’s Promise and Oath

Hebrews 6: 18-19 NLT So, God has given both His promise and oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to Him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.

These two unchangeable things are God’s promise and His oath to us. God embodies all truth; therefore, He cannot lie. Because God is truth, we can be secure in His promises; we don’t need to wonder if He will change His plans. Our hope is immovable, anchored in God, just as a ship’s anchor holds firmly to the seabed. To the true seeker who comes to God to belief, God gives an unconditional promise of acceptance. When you ask God with openness, honesty, and sincerity to save you from your sins, He will do it. This truth should give you encouragement, assurance, and confidence.

Prayer 

Father God, we praise and thank You for the promise and oath You have given to us. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for You, O God; to lie. Therefore, we have fled to You our refuge and strength and have this great confidence we hold onto, the hope that lies before us. This hope You have given to us, is strong and trustworthy an anchor for our souls. Thank You that it leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary, through Jesus Christ our precious Lord, and through the supernatural power of the Holy  Spirit of God. Amen

‘Come and Join Me in God’s Word’ – Seek His Will

Proverbs 3:6 NLT Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.

It is has been good for me to seek God’s guidance in everything I do, before I do it.  This means turning every area of my life over to Him. I must examine my values and priorities and ask myself what is important to me? I ask the Holy Spirit of God, to show me the areas of my life I have not acknowledged Him in, then when He reveals those areas to me; it is up to me whether I choose to change and do things in the way God wants me too or not. I admit I have tried to avoid areas which I wanted to ignore, but this has caused me grief. I have learnt God is the most important part of my life; and now without question I want to walk in obedience to His sovereign will. He will guide and lead me to accomplish His purpose for my life and I am grateful and thankful to Him in Jesus Christ.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You for showing me the errors of my ways. I want to change and be the person You created me to be in the name of Jesus Christ my precious Lord. Forgive me that I have not always followed You in the way You wanted me too. I am so grateful and thankful to You, for Your love and patience, and for waiting for me to grasp the lessons You wanted me to teach me. I seek Your will in all that I do, and I am thankful to You for showing me the path You want me to take. I glorify, magnify, and exalt Your name in the name of Jesus Christ, and in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. Amen

‘Come and Join Me in God’s Word’ – Holy Spirit of Promise

Ephesians 1:14 NLT The Spirit is God’s guarantee that He will give us the inheritance He promised and that He has purchased us to be His own people. He did this so we would praise and glorify Him.

The Holy Spirit of God is God’s guarantee that we belong to Him and that He will do what He has promised. The Holy Spirit is like a down payment, a deposit, a validating signature on the contract. The presence of the Holy Spirit in us demonstrates the genuineness of our faith, proves that we are God’s children, and secures eternal life for us. His power works in us to transform us now, and what we experience now is a taste of the total change we will experience in eternity.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, since I first heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ, my faith has become strong in Him. I praise and thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit, to dwell and live within me. He has brought me the Good News of Jesus Christ. I continually ask You to give me spiritual wisdom and guidance to continue walking in the glory of Him. I pray my heart will be flooded with Light so that I can understand the confident hope He has given to those He called – His holy people who are His rich and glorious inheritance. I also pray that I will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for I believe in Him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated Him in the place of honour at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. I commit and commend this prayer into Your hands in the precious name of Jesus Christ. Amen

‘Come and Join Me in God’s Word’ – Eternal God


Deuteronomy 33:27 NLT The eternal God is your refuge, and His everlasting arm under you. He drives out the enemy before you; He cries out, ‘Detroy them!’

I declared to the Lord, He is my refuge and strength; He is my true security. I know I can trust God completely, and I have no need to put my trust in the world; as the world has let me down time and time again. 
Having a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, has shown me how faithful and true Jesus Christ has been to me. Jesus, sent the Holy Spirit of God to dwell and live within me; He  has taught me the truth about the Gospel of Christ. Jesus, is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no-one can come to the Father except through Him. 
Gods everlasting arms are underneath me to catch me when the shaky supports that I have trusted, collapse and fall. No storm can destroy me when I take refuge in Him. Those without God, however, must forever be cautious. One mistake may wipe them out. Living for God in this world may look risky business. But it is the godless who are on shaky ground. Because God is our refuge, we can dare to be bold.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, I thank You that You are my eternal God, who is my refuge and strength. You are my true security, and I can trust You completely. I have no need to trust the world, as Your everlasting arms are underneath me. You drive out the enemy before me; You cry out,’Destory them’, and they fall. How grateful and thankful I am to You, O God, for sending Your precious Son, the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit of God; to dwell and live within me now and forever more. Amen

‘Come and Join Me in God’s Word’ – I Belong to God

Psalm 73:23-25 NLT Yet I still belong to You; You hold my right hand. You guide me with Your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny. Whom have I in heaven but You? I desire You more than anything on earth.

The moment I had my ‘Divine Encounter’ with God I knew I belonged to Him. He is my confidence and I am certain of His presence and guidance. From the time of my birth to death, I am continually in God’s grip. But far more, I have the hope of the resurrection. Though my courage and strength may fail, I know one day I will be raised to life to serve Jesus Christ forever. His is my security, and strength and I must always cling to Him. He holds me by His right hand. He guides me with His counsel, and He will lead me to a glorious destiny. Whom have I in heaven but You? And earth has nothing I desire but You.  

Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You that I still belong to You; You hold me by my right hand. You guide and lead me with Your Holy Spirit, and guide me with Your divine counsel. You have a plan that will lead me to a glorious destiny. Whom have I in heaven but You, O God; and earth has nothing I desire besides You. You are all that I need in the name of Jesus Christ, my precious Lord. Amen

‘Come and Join Me in God’s Word’ – Waiting on God

Psalm 27:14 NLT Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.

God has shown me how I am to wait patiently for Him. Waiting on God, for me at times has not been easy. Often it seems that He is not answering my prayers or doesn’t understand the urgency of my situation. I now know this is the wrong kind of thinking, and it implies that God is not in control or is not being fair to me. But I have found God is worth waiting for. The more I read the Scriptures, the more I can see my hope should be in Him. I should wait upon the Lord, because often God uses times of waiting to refresh, renew, and teach me what He wants me to understand and know. The Holy Spirit of God has taught me how to wait upon God, and make good use of my time by discovering what God maybe trying to teach me.

Prayer

Lord Jesus, teach me how You want me to live. Lead me along the right path, protect me from all my enemies who are waiting for me. Do not let me fall into their hands, for they accuse me of things I have never done; with every breath they threaten me with violence. Yet, I am confident in the Lord, I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living. I wait patiently for the Lord. I will be brave and courageous. Yes, I will wait patiently for the Lord, for He is my ever present help in all my times of trouble, thank You Jesus for always being there for me. Amen
