New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Glorious Plan‘

Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes. (Ephesians 3:20 TLB)

God is working His glorious plan out through His Holy Spirit within us. He is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of – infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes. Are we willing to entertain the possibility that God has a  big plan in store for us? Our Heavenly Father, wants His very best for us; and He can do wonderful things in and through us. Yet sometimes, especially if you’ve experienced a deep disappointment, you may find it difficult to envision a brighter future for yourself and your family. This is the time when we should seek God’s face with all of our heart and mind. We must take a look at God’s capabilities and the God-given talents He has given to us. Our Heavenly Father, has created us with unique gifts and abilities – perhaps some of those abilities have yet to be untapped. Our job is to tap into them, and into God’s strength. When you do this you begin to see and feel an increasing sense of faith and confidence which you have never felt before. Your confidence and strength in Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Spirit of God, seems brighter and the outlook to your future brighter. When you are going through difficulties, do not abandon your dreams. Instead, trust that God is preparing you for greater things. His Holy Spirit is at work in you, so trust and obey Him in faith and ask Him to increase your faith to see you through the difficulties, so His glory maybe seen. 

                                                                 Prayer

Heavenly Father, how grateful and thankful I am to You; for working Your mighty power within me enabling me to do or dare to ask or even dream of – infinitely beyond my highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hope. You are working out a glorious plan through Your Holy Spirit, through Jesus Christ. I know You have a great plan for me and I trust those plans will come to fruition at Your appointed time. My future is safely kept in Your hands forever and always in Jesus’ name. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘In The Light‘

But those doing right come gladly to the Light to let everyone see that they are doing what God wants them to. (John 3:21 TLB)

When you are walking in the light with Jesus Christ, our lives become exposed, some people do not want this to happen to them, because they are afraid of what will be revealed. They don’t want to be changed. We should never be surprised when these same people are threatened by our desire to obey God, and do what is right in the sight of God; the light within us may expose some of the darkness in their own lives. Rather than giving into discouragement, we must keep praying for them that they will come to see how much better it is to live in the light than in the darkness. 

                                                        Prayer

Precious God, how grateful and thankful I am, that I chose to live my life in the light with Christ. I gave up the darkness to follow Him. I am grateful and thankful His blood continually cleanses me from my sin, His love and forgiveness enables me to walk with Him. He is my Advocate. Keeping hold of Gods words, is my strength; He empowers me with His grace to continue on the path of obedience in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘God’s Power‘

And in the same way—by our faith [*] the Holy Spirit helps us with our daily problems and in our praying. For we don’t even know what we should pray for nor how to pray as we should, but the Holy Spirit prays for us with such feeling that it cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows, of course, what the Spirit is saying as he pleads for us in harmony with God’s own will. (Romans 8:26-27 TLB)

As a believer you are not left to your own devices. Father God, has sent the Holy Spirit of God to us as promised in the name of Jesus Christ.  “If you love me, obey me; and I will ask the Father and he will give you another Comforter, and he will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, the Spirit who leads into all truth.(John 14:15-17 TLB). 
The Holy Spirit indwells believers at salvation, which means His supernatural power is available to us from that moment. We are powerless to live out our lives without Him. We can draw our strength and power from Him. He teaches us how to pray and what to pray for. We must pray consistently, in all trials and tribulations, even when we have no idea what the outcome of the situations maybe. This is when we must demonstrate and exercise our faith, believing in the Word of God, what His Word says; He shall surely prove His love and faithfulness to us. It is faith that releases the Spirit of God’s power within us. Ask the Holy Spirit to intercede for us “in harmony with God’s will.” Then when you bring your requests to God, trust that He will always do what is best.

                                                            Prayer

Holy Spirit, how grateful and thankful I am that Jesus sent You to indwell within me at the moment of my salvation, and Your supernatural power has been released in me. I can never praise and thank You enough for Your teachings. Your truth has set me free, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Unlimited Resources‘

When I think of the wisdom and scope of his plan, I fall down on my knees and pray to the Father of all the great family of God—some of them already in heaven and some down here on earth—that out of his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you the mighty inner strengthening of his Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 3:14-16 TLB) 

When we have the Holy Spirit of God, teaching us God’s plans, we fall down on our knees and pray to the Father the great family of God – some of them already in heaven and some down here on earth – that out of His glorious, unlimited resources He will give us the mighty inner strengthening of His Holy Spirit. He has released the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit in us, enabling us to go beyond what is inherent to the nature of man. And the indwelling Spirit intends to do the same with every follower of God. This important truth has been passed on to us by other believers. Flesh is insufficient. Only the Holy Spirit living inside us has the strength and wisdom to live out the Christian life victoriously. That's why God gave us His Spirit, through whom we reap all the benefits of a righteous and godly life.

                                                             Prayer 

Holy Spirit, thank You for all the unlimited resources given to us through Your mighty inner strengthening. Thank You for releasing the Holy Spirit’s power, enabling us to go beyond what is inherent to the nature of man. Thank You for this important truth being passed onto us by other believers. Flesh is insufficient. Only the Holy Spirit of God living inside of us, has the strength and wisdom to live out the Christian life victoriously. I pray we will reap all the benefits of a righteous and godly life, through the precious name of Jesus. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘He Has Come‘


No, I will not abandon you or leave you as orphans in the storm—I will come to you. 
(John 14:18 TLB)

When Jesus says, “He will not abandon us or leave us as orphans in the storm – He will come to us,” He means just that. Although Jesus ascended to heaven, He sent the Holy Spirit to live within believers hearts, and to have the Holy Spirit is to have Jesus Himself. What an awesome revelation it is to have, Him indwelling in us. This is when we learn how to rely upon, depend upon, and lean upon His strength instead of our own. We must daily cast our burdens upon Him and not exhaust our strength. He commands that we yoke (or harness), ourselves to Him, allowing Him to carry your burdens. He has sent the Holy Spirit to guide us into all truth, so we need never rely on our own reasoning. He has given us His words to empower us with grace and provide the sure foundation on which our faith can stand and grow. We must never ignore His presence and His teachings. He loves us. He sacrificed His life so we could intimately know the Father and Him. But when we act contrary to His words, we are choosing unbelief in place of faith. So today, and throughout the day continually acknowledge that He has not abandon us and that He is with us now and forever more.

                                                           Prayer

Precious Lord, how grateful and thankful I am to have You residing and living within my heart and life. How I praise and thank You for sending the Holy Spirit to me, to reveal the truth to me, and guide me and lead me into the path of Your commands. Thank You that You will never abandon me but advice me and watch my progress through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Accomplish Peace‘

He spoke to them again and said, “As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” (John 20:21 TLB)

Jesus again identified Himself with the Father. He tells us as the Father has sent Me, even so I am sending you. He has called us into His kingdom not for our sakes alone. He has called us into His kingdom, that we may go forth to the world, and carry out a host of missions that we must accomplish in His name. He is sending us to untie us with His followers to finish His work on the earth. He has passed the job to His disciples of spreading the Good News of salvation around the world. Whatever God has asked us to do, remember: (1) Your authority comes from God, and (2) Jesus has demonstrated by words and actions how to accomplish the job He has given us to do. To enable us to accomplish this, His peace must rule within our hearts. Only then can we persevere through any adversity or trial. Only with His peace can we accomplish what He has planned for us. With His peace and our love for Him other followers will amaze and confound the world. There are so many that we must reach with the Gospel. They will be reached only by His followers who have His peace and express His love, which knows no limits. As we trust and obey His words, we will have His peace, and we will accomplish all that He has set forth for us.

                                                                    Prayer

Father, thank You for giving us Your peace and love to enable us to reach out to the world. Thank You for sending us out into the world with Your authority which comes from God. Jesus has demonstrated by words and actions how we must accomplish the job He has given us to do for the glory, praise, and honour of His kingdom and name we give thanks. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘God’s Child’

My sheep recognise my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life and they shall never perish. No one shall snatch them away from me, for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else, so no one can kidnap them from me. I and the Father are one. (John 10 :27-30 TLB)

You know when you are a child of God, because you recognise Jesus voice, and you follow Him. He has given us eternal life so we shall never perish. We have the Holy Spirit of God, dwelling and abiding in us and He is the One who keeps us on the path of truth. It is good when we have confidence and knowledge of this truth, we become sustained and assured within our hearts what God has said, ‘No one shall snatch us away from Him’, He means just that. He gives us peace that the world cannot provide. No circumstance can ever take Him by surprise. Nothing can undo His plan He has made for us. We shall always be safe in His hands. We must take charge of our hearts today. We must fill our hearts with His words. Only when we bond with Him will we experience His peace.

                                                                  Prayer

Father, I know I am a child of God, because I recognise Jesus Christ’s voice, and I follow Him. Jesus, is the Good Shepherd, and He protects His sheep. I have eternal life so I shall never perish.

I pray this prayer in His precious name. Amen.
