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

Then he said to them, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not. That is why I said that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am the Messiah, the Son of God, you will die in your sins.” (John 8:23-24 TLB)

People will die in their sins if they do not accept Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour and Lord, He is the One who forgives sins. Sadly, many are so taken up with the values of this world, that they are blind to the priceless gift Christ offers. Our Father chose to reveal the truth about Christ to us. He has taken the veil away from our eyes and the bias from our hearts. More and more I can see who He is. My belief in Him is a gift from my Father, delivered to me through the Holy Spirit of God. I have heard the Gospel, and I repented from all my sins and believed. I have been saved from this world and it’s my destiny. I have passed from death to life! I praise and glorify the Father for His mercy and grace, He has shown towards me; through the precious name of Jesus Christ. He has broken the chains of darkness through the sacrifice of His precious Son. I am ever grateful and thankful He enables and empowers me to live my life for Him. Amen.  

                                                         Prayer

Father, I am so grateful and thankful You have rescued and saved me from all my sin. I cannot thank You enough for delivering me from darkness into the pure Light of Jesus Christ when I believed in Him. Increase my faith so that I never waver to the right of the left, I ask this in Your precious name. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Faith Is In Christ‘

The only way out is through faith in Jesus Christ; the way of escape is open to all who believe him. (Galatians 3:22 TLB)

Jesus, has shown me the only way out is through my faith in Him, the way of escape is to believe in Christ. He has called me and I must be bold and brave. I expect God to provide me with everything I need to do His work and will. When I pray, I expect Him to answer the prayer’s I petition in His name, in accordance to His will. My whole goal is to harvest souls for His glory, kingdom, and name. When He tells me to go, I must be prepared to go. This means knowing God’s message of love and salvation. Every given opportunity I may have I will share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others. I love to talk about Jesus, and tell others what He has done for me; He can also do for them. This message is so important to me, the importance of sharing, because if my friend hadn’t shared the Gospel of Christ with me, goodness knows where I would be today, I would have been lost forever. Jesus, has saved me from the world. He has been my ever present help and strength in all my times of trouble. I do pray for miracles now so they will abound when He sends me out. I am ready for the opposition, for attackers who argue against the message, for others to mock and make me look foolish. I trust God completely to overcome such enemies and rejoice as He has all the victories and miracles we need.

                                                              Prayer

Jesus, thank You for coming and rescuing me from all of my sins. Thank You for giving me faith through the Holy Spirit of God, to believe and have faith in God. I shall be bold and brave and speak out about the Gospel of Christ, with every opportunity I have and get the message of Jesus Christ out to the world. I praise, bless, and thank You for everything You have done for me in His precious and holy name. Amen.

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

Jesus told them, “These claims are true even though I make them concerning myself. For I know where I came from and where I am going, but you don’t know this about me. 
(John 8:14 TLB)

Jesus, bears witness that He is the truth, the way, and the life. He knew where He came from and where He was going, and only He can reveal this truth to those who follow Him and believe Him; through the Holy Spirit of God. We are His lambs. Unlike everyone else, He did not come from this world. He came from the Father, and the Father has shown Him all things. Even when He walked the earth, He knew exactly where He was going, even through death. He wants us to know that He, is our Shepherd, and He will lead us according to His knowledge. This knowledge is not limited by human understanding. As we abide in His words, He will fill our hearts and minds with all that we need. And His Spirit will fill our spirits. As long as we follow Him, we will never have to worry about getting lost in this world’s darkness. Our lives will be filled with purpose and will not end at death. Let us follow Him closely. He knows exactly where we are going.

                                                        Prayer

Precious God, thank You for divulging this truth about Jesus Christ. Let me follow Him and believe Him, through the Holy Spirit of God. Fill my heart and mind with the Spirit of Christ, so that all worry about getting lost in this world’s darkness shall be no more. I commit this prayer to You in the Name of Jesus. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Dying To The Seed Of Self‘

“I must fall and die like a kernel of wheat that falls into the furrows of the earth. Unless I die I will be alone—a single seed. But my death will produce many new wheat kernels—a plentiful harvest of new lives. If you love your life down here—you will lose it. If you despise your life down here—you will exchange it for eternal glory.” (John 12:24-25 TLB)

The Holy Spirit of God, teaches how to die to the seed of self and the flesh on a daily basis. It is handing all of the control of our life’s over to God in the name of Jesus. Through prayer and through the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God; He enables and empowers us to do this. We must be committed to living our lives for Jesus Christ that we should “care nothing” for our lives by comparison. This does not mean that we long to die or that we are careless or destructive with the life God has given, but that we are willing to die if doing so will glorify Christ. We must disown the tyrannical rule of our own self-centredness. By laying aside, our striving for advantage, security, and pleasure, we can serve God lovingly and freely. Releasing control of our lives and transferring control to Christ bring eternal life and genuine joy.

                            Prayer

O my precious God, thank You for Your precious teachings. I lay aside everything in my life that stands in the way of Your will being done on earth as it is in heaven. I commit my life to living it for Jesus Christ. I disown the tyrannical rule of my own self-centredness in the name of Jesus and will walk in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God, and do things in His will and His ways Amen.

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

Jesus replied, “You are slaves of sin, every one of you. (John 8:34 TLB)

Jesus has cut my chains and has set me free from the darkness of this world. His blood has washed, cleansed, and purified me and darkness has lost it’s control over me. My destiny has been predestined by God. I trust Him to bring forth His plans He has determined for my life, in the precious name of Jesus Christ. I am intimately free to experience the purpose for which He has created me to be. Now, I can be a vessel an instrument used by the Spirit of God, to set others free by the power of His Words. His promises is as true for them as it is for me. If they abide in His words, they will also be His true disciples, and they will know the truth, and the truth of Christ will set them free. I am not afraid to share the truth of the Gospel of Christ with others, His words have been liberating words to me. We all need to share the light of Christ, and disperse the lies and deceit of darkness that the evil one brings to people of today.  
                                                             Prayer

O my precious God, how thankful and grateful I am to You that You have set me free from the darkness of this world. Now, help me to spread the Good News of the Gospel of Christ, so that others may also be set free in the truth that His Words brings. I ask this prayer in His name. Amen.

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

Hope deferred makes the heart sick; but when dreams come true at last, there is life and joy. (Proverbs 13:12 TLB)

When we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour and Lord, our whole out-look begins to change. Through God’s Word, we begin to see that He has a unique dream and plan for our lives that no-one else can do. His plan begins to unfold within our hearts through the Holy Spirit of God. We may have had high hopes and big plans when we lived in the world, but God has shown us that His plans and dreams are far greater than anything we could have ever dreamed or planned. After all, with God as our partner, no challenge is too great, and no mountain is too high. If we have encountered a setback or two, don’t worry too much about your troubles – and never abandon your hopes. Instead, focus on your dreams. Dreams do come true, and good things do happen to good people. But the best things are usually reserved for those who expect the best, plan for it, and take steps toward achieving it. If you have faith to believe in God’s Word, you will see He will honour everything He has promised you. 

                                                              Prayer   

Heavenly Father, how grateful and thankful I am to You that I can trust and have faith in Jesus Christ, to believe in the plans and dreams You have made for my life. I have life and joy as I trust Your Word, Your will; and Your promises. I praise and bless You through the Holy Spirit of God, in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.

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

“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. The world at large cannot receive him, for it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you do, for he lives with you now and some day shall be in you.” (John 14:15-17 TLB)

If we love Jesus, and if we will obey Him, He will ask the Father to give to us another Comforter who will never leave us or forsake us. He is the Holy Spirit of God, the Spirit who leads us into all truth. As followers of Christ we have unlimited access to the Holy Spirit of God and His fruit. It is so important that we obey Jesus Christ, abiding and being obedient is one of the key things we must do. We must walk in obedience and by doing so, we have unlimited access to the Holy Spirit and His fruit. He reminds us of Jesus words, He convicts us of sin, shows us God’s righteousness, and announces God’s judgement on evil, He guides us into truth and gives insight and revelation into future events. Abiding in His words, allows Jesus to perform His ministry through us in our lives, and in the lives of others.    
                                                           Prayer

Jesus, I do love You and will obey Your commands. I thank You that the Father has sent the Comforter who will never leave me or forsake me. He is the Holy Spirit of God, the Spirit who leads me into all truth. As a follower of Christ, I have unlimited access to the Holy Spirit of God and His fruit. How grateful and thankful I am to You, that You work Your ministry through me, enabling me to witness and testify to others through the precious name of Jesus Christ, to the glory of the Father. Amen.

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

But some will come to me—those the Father has given me—and I will never, never reject them. (John 6:37 TLB)

Jesus did not work independently of God the Father, but He worked in union with Him. We should do exactly what Jesus did, and follow His example. I know I too, I was given to Jesus by the Father. As I witness to others, I will not be discouraged if they reject the Gospel. I know it is not my responsibility to prove anything. Spiritual birth is the work of the Holy Spirit. My calling is to be His witness with the way I live my life and the words I speak. I then let the Holy Spirit perform His ministry in the lives of people who see and hear my witness. I am His precious lamb, and He is my Shepherd, I rejoice as I have been given to Him. Everything that the Father gives Him will come to Him, and the one who comes to Him, He will by no means cast out. Isn’t this a wonderful revelation to have.

                                                          Prayer 

Precious God, I do not want to work independently from You. I want to work in union with You through the Holy Spirit and in the name of Jesus Christ. I will speak and witness the Gospel to the heart and core of Your people as You enable me to do. I rejoice because You are the joy of my salvation and I am every thankful and grateful to God for all that He is has done and is doing in my life for the praise, honour and glory of Jesus Christ Name. Amen.

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

He went forward a little, and fell face downward on the ground, and prayed, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup be taken away from me. But I want your will, not mine.” (Matthew 26:39 TLB)
Sometimes we want to know our futures and understand the reason why we may be anxious or troubled. We want to get quick answers for what we are going through, and we must pray effectively, our goal should not be to to offer quick, thoughts, or self-willed prayers in hopes of receiving speedy answers. Instead, we must learn to pray wisely and wait patiently. Along with voicing our concerns and requests to God, we should also offer ourselves up in submission to our Father, as Jesus did in Gethsemane. (Matthew 26:39) Jesus knew what lay ahead for Him, and He knew the reason why He had to go through it. Even so, His struggles were intense – more wrenching than any struggle we will ever have to face. What does it take to be able to say, “I want Your will to be done”? It takes firm trust in God’s plans; it takes prayer and obedience each step of the way. When we are yielded and obedience to the Lord, His Spirit guides us and provides the wisdom we need in order to pray according to His will.
                                                             Prayer

Holy Spirit, thank You for teaching me how to pray. Thank You for showing me You know what the future holds and You will take care of it for me. I am ever grateful and thankful to You for this. I want Your will to be done on earth as it is heaven for the honour, praise and glory of Jesus Christ’s name. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Love Does No Wrong‘

Love does no wrong to anyone. That’s why it fully satisfies all of God’s requirements. It is the only law you need. Another reason for right living is this: you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for the coming of the Lord is nearer now than when we first believed. (Romans 13:10-11TLB)

You cannot go wrong when you love others. This is why it satisfies all of God’s requirements. But make sure that you don’t get so absorbed and exhausted in taking care of all your day-to-day obligations that you lose track of the time and doze off, oblivious to God. Each waking moment holds the potential for us to think a creative thought or offer a heartfelt prayer. So even if you a person with too many demands and too few hours in which to meet them, take comfort in the knowledge that when you seek to discover God’s priorities for your life, He will provide answers in marvellous and surprising ways. This is the day the Lord has made, and He has filled it with opportunities to love, to serve, and to seek His guidance. Seize every opportunity. As a gift to yourself, to your family, and to the world, slow down and take each day moment by moment. In doing this you will soon discover that God’s blessings come tucked in the pockets of right priorities.

                                                         Prayer

Father, help me to continue to love others even when they do wrong towards me. I know this is one of Your requirements You want me to do in the name of Jesus. Help me to live my life moment by moment and enjoy each day by living in a right, giving me the right opportunities to glorify Your name, in the name of Jesus I do so pray. Amen.

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

For I have come here from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to have my own way. (John 6:38 TLB)

It is really wonderful when we seek the Father’s will, He gives such joy to our hearts. When we focus our hearts and minds on doing our Father’s will and putting aside our will this is when great peace comes to our hearts and minds. Because we can search in God’s Word, we find the answer we need, and the Father reveals His will perfectly, and we can act on it at any given time. When we do act on God’s Word, the Holy Spirit will give us the grace, power, and faith to do exactly what pleases the Father. Doing His will produces a joy that no one can take from you. It is a joy that is centred in His eternal purposes. When I lack joy, I realise that is because my focus has been diverted away from seeking God’s will.

                                                             Prayer

Father, it is wonderful that I am able to seek Your will. It brings such joy to my heart. I must always focus my thoughts on You, putting aside my will and doing the Father’s will this is so important to me. Thank You for the Holy Spirit, He gives me grace, power, and faith to do exactly what pleases You. I thank and praise You in the name of Jesus. Amen.

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

And we are sure of this, that he will listen to us whenever we ask him for anything in line with his will. And if we really know he is listening when we talk to him and make our requests, then we can be sure that he will answer us. (1 John 5:14-15 TLB)

Sometimes when we pray, we are not sure whether God listens and hears our prayers. The more we read the Word of God, the more confident we become. If we dare to admit it, there are also times when we just want God to do what we ask, without regard to what He desires. Our assurance comes from having confidence in His Word, not from any emotions and feelings we may have. It is hard when we pray, we cannot know if our prayers are in alignment with His will. This is when the Holy Spirit of God, teaches us to rely upon, lean upon, and depend upon Him in our faith and trust in Him. He knows what He wants us to go through. And He also knows what the outcome will be. Our faith is being tested, through our trials and tribulations to prove whether our faith is genuine. 

                                                              Prayer

Father, thank You; for sending the Holy Spirit of God, to abide in me. Thank You, through Him, and His teachings; I can lean, rely, depend upon Him to show me the prayers that I am praying are in alignment with His will in the precious name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

When I come back to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. (John 14:20 TLB)

Jesus has taught me I was in Him, and I would know that He is in His Father, and I was in Him also. He showed me how I can be as unified and as intimate as He was with His first disciples. I must believe in this truth and act on it. I must let His words and His life dwell in my heart and guide my behaviour through the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. If I would do this, nothing would be impossible for me.  “In solemn truth I tell you, anyone believing in me shall do the same miracles I have done, and even greater ones, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask him for anything, using my name, and I will do it, for this will bring praise to the Father because of what I, the Son, will do for you. Yes, ask anything, using my name, and I will do it!” (John 14:12-14TLB)

                                                             Prayer

O my precious God, I praise and thank You, that I dwell and abide in You, as You abide and dwell within me. Thank You for teaching me the truth that believing in You, I can ask for anything using Your name, and You will do it in accordance to Your will in Jesus Christ’s name. Amen.

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

They hated the heavenly Light because they wanted to sin in the darkness. They stayed away from that Light for fear their sins would be exposed and they would be punished. But those doing right come gladly to the Light to let everyone see that they are doing what God wants them to.” (John 3:20-12 TLB)

Some people want to get close to me, and others run away from me, especially when I speak about Jesus or the Father. I realise they are running away not from me, but from Jesus Christ, who lives within me. I was willing to give up the things I’d had in the world and the god I served. I had given up following the darkness when the truth was exposed to me by the light of Jesus Christ’s truth. I would not be discouraged. Others – those who desire and practice the truth – will be attracted to the light they see. The more I share the Good News of Christ, the Holy Spirit will open people’s eyes and give birth in their spirits just as He had given birth to my spirit, when I became ‘Born Again Christian.’ All people need to hear God’s Word. No matter what trials we may face. As disciples of God, we all need to speak the truth about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is the only One who can set the captives free. 

                                                                Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You for revealing the Light of Christ to me, and forgiving and redeeming me from all my sins. You have cleansed and purified me from all my sins. You have rescued me from the path and the power of the Evil One and have set me free from the darkness of this world. I will be forever grateful and thankful to You, for the truth which was given to me through the Holy Spirit of God. Amen.

O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit or stand. When far away you know my every thought. (Psalm 139:1-2 TLB)

Sometimes we don’t let people get to know us completely because we are afraid they will discover something about us that they won’t like. But God already knows everything about us, as He has examined our hearts. He knows when we sit or stand up. When we are far away He knows our every thought and He still accepts and loves us. We can never escape from His Spirit! We can never get away from His presence! He is with us through every situation and trial – He is protecting us, loving us, and guiding us into His perfect will. We have no reason to fear. God will protect us with His angels and archangels. He has placed His hand of blessings upon our heads, such knowledge is too wonderful for us to understand. He will bring us to a place of safety and lead us along the right path where we find rest. 

                                                            Prayer

O my precious God, You have examined my heart and You know everything about me. You know when I sit or stand up. When I am far away You know my every thought. How wonderful it is to know that You are with me - protecting me, loving me, and guiding me into Your perfect will where I find rest for my soul, through Jesus Christ my Lord, I give praise and thanks. Amen.

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

The Lord will work out his plans for my life—for your loving-kindness, Lord, continues forever. Don’t abandon me—for you made me. (Psalm 38:8 TLB)

Every person that meets with God, God shows them He has a purpose and a plan for their lives. When we lived in the world we worked hard to see the dream and plans come true. Now when someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same anymore. A new life has begun! All these new things are from God who brought us back to himself through what Christ Jesus did. And God has given us the privilege of urging everyone to come into his favour and be reconciled to Him. We simply need to know that the Father never does anything without purpose and that His purposes always are right and perfect. He alone knows what is best for us; He alone can fulfil His purpose for us. As we make plans and dream dreams, talk to God about them and include Him in everything we do.  Make the most of our lives allowing Him to guide and leads us into His perfect plan and His dreams will become our dreams.

                                                               Prayer

O my precious God, how grateful and thankful I am to You for allowing me to be apart of Your perfect plans. You shall work out the purpose of Your plans and dreams within me and they shall come forth in the glory, praise, honour, of Your precious and holy name in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

He will even raise from the dead anyone he wants to, just as the Father does. 
(John 5:21 TLB)

The Holy Spirit of God revealed to me, God is my Father; and He sent Jesus to provide His gift of eternal life to me when I believed and asked Him to forgive me my sins; I heard the truth of the Gospel of Christ. I have been birthed by the Holy Spirit, and He has given me eternal life. When I die, He will raise me from the dead. I can rejoice in this wonderful truth. Jesus helps me to make the right choices. Because of my identity with Jesus, I must honour and obey Him and live as He wants me to live. Nothing can remove me from anything that is eternal and nothing can remove me from His presence. He has given me His love and eternal life. No matter what my circumstances maybe, I can face today, and the rest of my life knowing the truth causes me to rejoice without ceasing.

                                                         Prayer

Precious God, thank You I follow the voice of the Good Shepherd as I hear Him. I shall never perish or die, and no one will ever snatch me out of His hand. You have revealed to me through the Holy Spirit of God who my Father and His precious Son is. I have had the truth birthed within me, by the Holy Spirit of God, and He has provided the gift of eternal life because I believed in Him. I will honour and obey Him and live as He wants me to live through the precious name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from Satan’s power. (John 17:15 TLB)

Jesus, prayed to our Father, that we would be safe in the world. He asked the Father, to give us special protection from Satan. Satan hates the Father, and He hates Christ, he also hates us because of our love for Jesus Christ. He tries to prevent us from leading people out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light. He puts obstacles in our way trying to prevent us from spreading the Good News of Christ. He wants to extinguish our light. But Jesus answered our prayer. He has overcome the devil and his kingdom. Satan does not have the power to remove us from the Father’s loving hand. Jesus, has taught us to pray through the Holy Spirit of God asking Him to keep us from the paths of temptation and to deliver us from the Evil One. We must pray as Jesus has taught us to pray, not merely to mouth the words, but by praying thoughtful praying each thought. Our Father will answer the prayer of our hearts and He will lead us into paths of righteousness. He will deliver us daily from the path and the power of the Evil One as we lean, depend, and put our trust in Him. 

                                                         Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You for the special protection that You have given to me, and for keeping me safe from Satan’s power. Thank You for showing me that Satan hates me because of my love for Jesus Christ. Satan tries to prevent me from leading people out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light, by placing obstacles in my way. Praise God, Jesus has won the victory on the Cross through the shed Blood of Christ. Nothing on this earth can deter Him from achieving His purpose and plan. Amen.

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

For it is my Father’s will that everyone who sees his Son and believes on him should have eternal life—that I should raise him at the Last Day. (John 6:40 TLB)

When we put our trust and faith in Jesus Christ and believe in Him, we will be resurrected from physical death to eternal life with God; when Christ comes again. Before we can truly believe in Him, we must first seek Him – His life, His works, and His words. The Holy Spirit of God gave birth to our spirit, when we put our faith in Jesus Christ, asking for His forgiveness; this is when we became born again. Allowing the Holy Spirit of God to work His power through us, enables and empowers us; and He teaches us to understand and have the knowledge needed to be equipped with God’s Word, (the Bible). We must believe in Him by obeying His Words. He promised His disciples that He would reveal Himself to everyone who would obey His commandments. The more we obey Jesus Christ, the more He reveals Himself to us, enabling our faith to grow. 

                                                                 Prayer

Gracious Father, thank You for revealing Your Son to me, through the Holy Spirit of God. Thank You that You empowered me to be born again, through my faith and trust in Jesus Christ. I will obey Him as a disciple of God. Thank You I can express faith in Christ, with praise, adoration and love. I glorify, magnify, Your goodness towards me now and always in Jesus Name. Amen.

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. It is good the Holy Spirit of God has given me confidence and knowledge of this truth. No circumstance can ever take Him by surprise. Nothing can undo His plans for me. I am safe in His hands. I fill my heart with God’s words today. May His Word be sustained within my heart, bonding me to Him, and the more I bond with Christ, the more I experience His peace in my heart. I pray this prayer in His precious name. Amen.

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

Anyone whose Father is God listens gladly to the words of God. Since you don’t, it proves you aren’t his children. (John 8:47 TLB)

We must listen to God words, when we do this it proves we are His children. A lot of people live on the broad path that leads to destruction instead of the narrow path that leads to eternal life? Why do they do this? They do this because they do not belong to God. Those who belong to God listen to His words, and they don’t just listen with their ears. They listen and embrace God’s words in their hearts, and their lives show it. I belong to my Father and I belong to Jesus Christ, my life is governed and controlled by the Holy Spirit of God. I receive Gods Words and follow them. Sometimes, I have felt discouraged when others reject my witness. Some people have made me feel alone and caused me to wonder if I was wrong. It is those people who live in darkness. And in darkness people believe anything they want to believe. Those who reject me or my witness are really rejecting Christ. So, this give me all the more reason to pray for them and ask God’s blessings upon them.

                                                           Prayer

Precious God, thank You that I do listen to God’s words. It is so important to me that I walk the path that leads to eternal life. This path is narrow and straight and sometimes it is hard to walk on this path, but with the help and supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God, I can do this with Him. I praise and thank You for this. Amen.

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

“Love your enemies! Do good to them! Lend to them! And don’t be concerned about the fact that they won’t repay. Then your reward from heaven will be very great, and you will truly be acting as sons of God: for he is kind to the unthankful and to those who are very wicked.  “Try to show as much compassion as your Father does.” (Luke 6:35-36 TLB)
Jesus, teaches we must love our enemies and forgive them just as our Father in Heaven has forgiven us. Even when we are at our worst, our Father is kind to us, so we should set an example and be kind to others. Even when we show little gratitude for His love and mercy, He blesses us and demonstrates His patience, mercy, and grace. We must do the will of our Father this is our purpose, just like it was Jesus Christ’s purpose. He wants us to follow Him by following His example and doing what He says, in obedience. He wants us to love our enemies by showing kindness in our actions towards them. We must pray for them, forgive them, and bless them however hard this is sometimes to do, with the Holy Spirit of God’s help, He enables and empowers us to do this. We must never make excuses, mercy is never deserved. It is a gift from our Father to us. He wants us to give that same gift to all who have hurt us. When we do this, we will truly be a child of the Mot High, and our reward will be great.
                                                                      Prayer
Precious God, enable and empower me through the Holy Spirit of God; to forgive all those people who have hurt me. Don't allow me to be unforgiving, but do and be like Jesus Christ, who forgave all sin to set the captives free. Amen.

You provide delicious food for me in the presence of my enemies. You have welcomed me as your guest; [*] blessings overflow! Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with you forever in your home. (Psalm 23:5-6 TLB) 

God has given me not only the ability to think, but also the ability to control the direction of my thoughts. I must direct my thoughts in the direction of Christ Jesus, He is my future. The quality of my thought life will help determine the quality of the rest of my life – so I guard my thoughts accordingly. You provide delicious food for me in the presence of my enemies. You have welcomed me as your guest; [*] blessings overflow! Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with you forever in your home. (Psalm 23:5-6 TLB). 

                                                                 Prayer

Thank You for giving me the ability to think, but also the ability to control the direction of my thoughts. Praise and bless You for Jesus Christ, He is my future now and always.

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

I have told you all this so that you will have peace of heart and mind. (John 16:33 TLB)

Jesus tell us that we will have peace of heart and mind as we put our trust in Him. It doesn't matter what kind of trials we have to go through in life, knowing Jesus’ presence is with us wherever we go strengthens our hearts and mind to know we are not alone. The stresses of life make gaining real peace seem impossible. Jesus, wants us to have His peace that the world cannot give or even understand, this peace is only found in Him. The Holy Spirit of God, strengthens us and He keeps us peaceful, as we abide in His words and acting upon them, in the name of Jesus Christ. Having Christ’s peace is so fulfilling that those who have it can joyfully endure any hardship or trial. When we are stressed, worried, or fearful, it is an alarm warning to us that we have taken our eyes off Jesus. We must not take our eyes off Jesus, but we must reset our focus back on Him, to regain His precious peace. Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. John 14:27 NASB

                                                             Prayer

Jesus, thank You for Your great peace that You have given to me as I put my trust in You. Thank You that I can rely, depend, and lean upon You no matter what kind of trials I have to go through in life. Thank You for all Your love and faithfulness Your Word brings to my heart and mind. I can never praise and thank You enough for everything You do for me daily in Jesus’ name. Amen.

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

This plan of mine is not what you would work out, neither are my thoughts the same as yours! For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than yours, and my thoughts than yours. (Isaiah 55:8-9 TLB)

We must never be foolish enough to think that we know what God is thinking and planning. He is ready to show us what He wants us to do, but it has to be when He is ready to tell us. His knowledge and wisdom are far greater than any humans. We are foolish to try and fit God into our mould – to make His plans and purpose conform to ours. We must learn patience and be patient and wait for Him to show us what He wants us to do. In the meantime we can use our time of waiting in wisdom, learning about more God’s characteristics and very nature. The Holy Spirit of God, guides and leads us into His perfect plan, so we become more and more like Him. He works His power in love, joy, peace, faithfulness, gentleness, patience, kindness, goodness, self-control. He teaches us how to be expectant upon Him and no one else.

                                                                 Prayer

Precious God, thank You, Your thoughts and ways, are far greater than mine. I can depend upon and lean upon You for all my needs. I would be foolish to try and fit You into my mould – to make Your plans and purpose conform to mine. Instead, I ask You to knit, mould, and shape me into Your desired will. Conform me into the image of Christ Jesus, and let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven for the glory, praise, honour of Your name. Amen.

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

If you want favor with both God and man, and a reputation for good judgment and common sense, then trust the Lord completely; don’t ever trust yourself. In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success. (Proverbs 3:5-6 TLB)

If we want to find favour with both God and man, and have a reputation for good judgment and common sense, then we must learn to trust the Lord completely. Before we do anything, we must find time to seek God through prayer and reading His Word. We must acknowledge His sovereignty over every aspect of our life, He will guide and lead us into the path of truth. As you prayerfully consider the path God wants you to take, here are some other things you can do to keep on the right path: Study God’s Word and be watchful for the signs He gives. Associate with faith-filled Christians, who are relying upon the Holy Spirit of God in the name of Jesus Christ, who are optimistic friends who will encourage your spiritual growth. Listen carefully to that still, small voice that speaks to you in the quiet moments of your daily devotional time. And be patient. Your Heavenly Father may not always reveal Himself as quickly as you'd like, but rest assured that He wants to use you in wonderful, unexpected ways in accordance to His plan for your life.

                                                                Prayer 

Holy Spirit, teach me to listen and heed to the Word of God. Teach me to trust God more and to put God first in everything I do. Let me lean, rely, and depend upon Him and not upon my own understanding. Thank You that I can trust You completely in Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

For I have told you often before, and I say it again now with tears in my eyes, there are many who walk along the Christian road who are really enemies of the cross of Christ. (Philippians 3:18 TLB)

As mature Christians, we must follow the ‘Biblical Principles’ found in the Word of God. 
We must seek the Holy Spirit of God, asking Him for wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and insight in the name of Jesus Christ. We must be consistent in our prayer life, reading God’s Word, and being creatures of habit and have patterns that reflect our faith and trust in Him. Choosing Christ as the central focus of our life, is what we need to do. We do not need to make excuses, we still have so much to learn. Many people who walk along the Christian road, do not always live up to Christ’s model of servanthood and self-sacrifice. Such people satisfy their own desires before even thinking about the needs of others. Freedom in Christ does not mean freedom to be selfish. It means taking every opportunity to serve and to become the best person you can be. 

                                                           Prayer

Precious God, help us to keep upon the path of Christ Jesus, the path that is narrow and straight. Help us to follow the ‘Biblical Principles’, found in the Word of God. Holy Spirit, we seek wisdom, knowledge, understanding, discernment and insight in the name of Jesus Christ. Without You we can do nothing, but in Christ we can do all things through Him who strengthens us. Help us to keep our faith and follow Jesus, in all things great and small for the glory of His name. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Don't Ignore The Truth‘

Heaven can be entered only through the narrow gate! The highway to hell [*] is broad, and its gate is wide enough for all the multitudes who choose its easy way. But the Gateway to Life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it. (Matthew 7:13-14 TLB)
We must be careful not to misrepresent the Gospel. Many people ignore the truth. Some people make an effort to make the Gospel more acceptable, setting aside God’s truth that make people uncomfortable. We must walk through the narrow gate this leads to eternal life. This ‘Gateway to Life’ is small, and the road is narrow, and only few people ever find it. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one come to the Father except through Jesus Christ. There are no other paths to God. Being one of God’s sheep leads us in the path of love, righteousness, and truth. This is the only path that leads to heaven, where God has prepared a home for us.

                                                                  Prayer

Father, thank You for showing me to be careful not to misrepresent the Gospel. I do not want to ignore the truth. I want to represent You in the truth not make the Gospel more acceptable, setting aside God’s truth that make people uncomfortable. Walking the narrow path is the most important path to follow, through Jesus Christ our precious Lord, leads us to the Father, where He has prepared a home for us. Amen.

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

Let not your heart be troubled. You are trusting God, now trust in Me. (John 14:1 TLB)
We must watch to make sure that we do not fall into cycles of letting our hearts be controlled by our circumstances and stresses they create. God says, “Let not your heart be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in Me.” This is sometimes very hard to do. Jesus words show us that the way to eternal life, though unseen, is secure – as secure as your trust in Jesus. He has already prepared the way for us to follow into eternal life. The only way we can do this is not to carry any unresolved worries into our day from the day before, but we can encounter new situations that bring additional anxiety. We are taught not to carry our burdens, but to give over our burdens to Jesus daily. When we do this we experience His peace and joy. Jesus wants us to establish a new pattern for today, and He wants us to repeat this pattern every day. He does not want our circumstances to control our heart, but He wants us to take control of our heart. Every time a circumstance creates stress or worry, prayerfully hand it over to Christ and trust Him for the rest.

                                                         Prayer

Holy Spirit, thank You for showing me not to let circumstances and stress control my heart. Instead, I must place my trust in Jesus Christ. Daily, I cast all my cares and burdens upon Him. I am secure in Jesus Christ, so I can experience His love, joy, peace forever and always. Amen.

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

Let us stop going over the same old ground again and again, always teaching those first lessons about Christ. Let us go on instead to other things and become mature in our understanding, as strong Christians ought to be. (Hebrews 6:1 TLB)

We are to be sustained with the teachings of the Holy Spirit of God, this is an ongoing process – this requires ongoing work. This is essential for us believers to understand, the basics includes the importance of faith, the foolishness of trying to be saved by good deeds, the meaning of baptism and spiritual gifts, and the facts of resurrection and eternal life. We are to invest our time in prayer, meditation, and worship can be times of enrichment and celebration. As we build our lives upon the foundation of faith, we will discover that the journey towards spiritual maturity lasts a lifetime. Mature Christians should be teaching new Christians the basics. Then, acting on what they know, the mature will learn even more from God’s Word.

                                                             Prayer

O my precious God, I do not want to go over the same ground time and again. I ask the Holy Spirit of God, to sustain me in His teaching I know this is a ongoing process. This is essential for me as a believer to understand, the basics the importance of faith and mediation. God enables me to draw upon His Word, through the Holy Spirit of God. He reminds me what God has said, as I remember and recall. I worship, praise, adore, and love Him now and always through the precious name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

But Jesus said no. “Go home to your friends,” he told him, “and tell them what wonderful things God has done for you; and how merciful he has been.” (Mark 5:19 TLB)

When I became a Christian, I had walked the path of evil; and had been in the devils camp for forty years. When challenged did I believe Jesus Christ was the Son of God?, I responded;  ‘Yes, I Do’, my life changed radically. In a twinkle of an eye I came out from the darkness into the Light with Christ. The Holy Spirit of God, had sealed me as His child, through the name of Jesus. He began to teach me the truth. Jesus, told me to tell my family and friends about the miraculous healing He had given to me. I intended to do just that. Knowing the truth of the Gospel of Christ, had set me free, I wanted to tell others about Jesus, so they too could be set free from all their sins. Acknowledging Jesus Christ, as Saviour and Lord is the first step. Jesus Christ, has made me so happy, joyous, and contented. I have a new wonderful life in Him and I wouldn’t change my life with Him for anything.

                                                             Prayer

O my precious God, how grateful and thankful I am to You for redeeming and saving me from all my sins. I have a new life through Jesus Christ. I shall be a true follow of Christ; walking in submission and obedience to Him; and I trust in the plans He has ordained for my life, for His praise, glory, kingdom and name. Amen.

But Jesus ignored their comments and said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just trust me.” 
(Mark 5:36 TLB)

Jesus, knew I struggled with anxiety, stress, and fear. Even though I tried to ignore them, they remained deep in my soul, mind, spirit, and heart. They infected my perceptions and affected my responses. They hindered my ability to experience peace and joy. The stress and fear I felt, reduced my ability to love people. I would overreact even to a slight irritation. Minor problems were overwhelming. Worst of all, my intimacy with the Father and Jesus faded at times and disappeared altogether. The Holy Spirit of God, showed me it didn't have to remain this way. I had choices to make in each situation I had, either; I trusted God, or I remained in stress, anxiety, and fear. Jesus said, “Don't be afraid. Just have faith.” The Holy Spirit of God, showed me in Jesus Christ, there is both hope and promise. The next time I began to be anxious, fearful, hopeless, and afraid, I began looking at my problem from Jesus’s point of view. He has helped me to overcome the anxiety, fear, hopelessness and I am not afraid anymore.  All I had to do was to have the faith and confidence to trust Jesus Christ, and He would do the rest.

                                                             Prayer

Holy Spirit, thank You for showing me how to overcome anxiety, stress, and fear. I have acknowledged my sins before You, and have repented from fear, anxiety, stress in my life, Where I opened the door to these sins, now I ask You to close the door on these sins now and forever more in the precious name of Jesus Christ. Wash, purify, and sanctify me in the Blood of Christ, for His glory and name I ask this prayer. Amen.

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

Yet the Lord still waits for you to come to him so he can show you his love; he will conquer you to bless you, just as he said. For the Lord is faithful to his promises. Blessed are all those who wait for him to help them. O my people in Jerusalem, you shall weep no more, for he will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry. He will answer you. Though he give you the bread of adversity and water of affliction, yet he will be with you to teach you—with your own eyes you will see your Teacher. And if you leave God’s paths and go astray, you will hear a voice behind you say, “No, this is the way; walk here.” And you will destroy all your silver idols and gold images and cast them out like filthy things you hate to touch. “Ugh!” you’ll say to them. “Be gone!” Then God will bless you with rain at planting time and with wonderful harvests and with ample pastures for your cows. (Isaiah 30:18-23 TLB)

The Lord gave His people adversity for food and suffering to drink, but he promised to be with them, teach them, and guide them during hard times. God expects a lot from us, and many times following Him can be painful; but He always acts out of His love for us. He waits for us to come to Him, so He can show us His love; He will conqueror us to bless us, just as He has said. For the Lord is faithful to all His promises. We are blessed when we wait for Him to help us.  We must never leave God’s paths and go astray, we will hear a voice behind us saying, “No, this is the way; walk here.” Next time you go through a difficult time, try to appreciate the experience and grow from it, learning what God wants to teach you. God may be showing you His love by patiently walking with you through adversity.

                                                             Prayer

Gracious God, thank You for waiting for me to show Your love, to bring me to the place for Your blessings. As I walk through adversity help me to grow stronger in my love and faith as my trust and confidence grows in You. I praise and bless You in the Almighty name of Jesus Christ for everything You are doing for me in Your name I give thanks. Amen.

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

Come to me and I will give you rest—all of you who work so hard beneath a heavy yoke. Wear my yoke—for it fits perfectly—and let me teach you; for I am gentle and humble, and you shall find rest for your souls; for I give you only light burdens.” (Matthew 11:28-30 TLB)

The Heavenly Father, wants us to become more like Jesus each day. This is why He sent the Holy Spirit of God, to enable and empower the life of Christ in us. The yoke of Christ emphasises the challenges, work, and difficulties of partnering with Christ in life. Responsibilities weigh us down, even the effort of staying true to God. But Jesus’ yoke remains easy compared to the crushing alternative. He desires that others will come face to face with His loving kindness, righteousness, wisdom, and justice through us. This is why we must ask the Holy Spirit of God to harness us to Christ daily. When we harness ourselves to Christ Jesus daily, the yoke we share with Him; the burdens we carry, fall onto bigger shoulders than ours. Someone with more pulling power is up front helping us. Suddenly we are participating in life’s responsibilities with a great Partner – and now we can smile and know the Lord God, is in charge of each detail of our lives through Jesus Christ and our burdens become lighter each day.
                                                              Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You for showing me that I must be harnessed to Jesus Christ daily. I need to daily fill my mind and heart with Your words. As I do this the Holy Spirit of God will perform His ministry in my mind and heart. He will bring His words to my memory and apply them to whatever situation I am in. He will empower me with the grace needed to apply His words to my life, moment by moment. He will grant me the faith I need to take each step with Him, and in all this He will reproduce Jesus in me, and my wonderful Father will be glorified. Amen.

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

I have told you Moreover, because of what Christ has done, we have become gifts to God that he delights in, for as part of God’s sovereign plan we were chosen from the beginning to be his, and all things happen just as he decided long ago. God’s purpose in this was that we should praise God and give glory to him for doing these mighty things for us, who were the first to trust in Christ. (Ephesians1:11-12 TLB) 

It is really great when we can come to a place with God, where we can have confidence and faith to trust Him no matter what is going on around us. We become unshakeable and assured in faith, and have peace of heart and mind; through Jesus Christ. Because of what Jesus has done for us, we have become gifts to God that He delights in. For we are part of God’s sovereign plan we were chosen from the beginning to be His, and all things happen just as He decided long ago. He is where our future lies, in His guiding hands. We have every reason to trust God’s promises, even though we go through many trials and sorrows; we can live comfortably and confidently, that He is controlling each situation we face. Yet despite God’s promises, and despite His blessings, you may, from time to time, find yourselves tormented by doubt and negative emotions. When you do, step back and redirect your thoughts and prayers. Every single Christian, one time and another has had to overcome occasional bouts of fear and doubt. We must remember not to feel discouraged – or worse – God is faithful, and His presence is with us always. We must sincerely seek Him with all of our hearts, minds, body, soul, spirit, and rely upon His strength. He give us the courage to help us overcome all things. He will restore our confidence through Jesus Christ, and through the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God.  

                                                              Prayer

Father, thank You that I can trust Your sovereign plans for my life. I have the confidence and faith to trust You no matter what is going on around me. Thank You that You chose me from the beginning to be Yours, and everything will happen as You decided long ago. I praise and bless You and give You all the honour and glory through Jesus Christ my precious Lord. Amen. 

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

And since your old sin-loving nature “died” with Christ, we know that you will share his new life. Christ rose from the dead and will never die again. Death no longer has any power over him. (Romans 6:8-9 TLB)

It is so good to know because of Christ’s death and resurrection, as followers of Christ we need never fear death. The assurance we now have gives us freedom to enjoy fellowship with Jesus Christ and He enables us to do His will. We begin to see everything through God’s point of view and not our own. We will experience the full love of Christ, His righteousness, and mercy from the Father. The best news anyone of us can have is we will never die. That assurance frees us to enjoy fellowship with Him and to do His will. This affects all our activities – work and worship, play, Bible study, quiet times, and times of caring for others. Knowing this helps us to experience a new vigour in life.

                                                        Prayer

Father, thank You for the forgiveness of all my sins. Thank You for Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection, and now You enable me to follow Him. I need never fear death ever again. I now have the freedom to enjoy a great friendship and freedom with Him, which I never experienced before I knew His name. I now experience the full love, righteousness, and mercy of the Father. The Holy Spirit of God, helps me to see things through the eyes of God and in the light with Christ. How grateful and thankful I am to God for all the forgiveness, grace, and mercy, He has shown towards me now and forever more. Amen.

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

But Jesus told him, “No! For the Scriptures tell us that bread won’t feed men’s souls: obedience to every word of God is what we need.” (Matthew 4:4 TLB)

The key to all Scriptures is: God’s Holy Spirit, feeds us through His Word, He feeds our hearts, minds, body’s, spirit’s and soul’s with His Word. He tells us that we cannot live on bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. By reading God’s Word, Jesus, also used the Word of God when He was in the wilderness to combat the devil and all of His works. He used it like a sword in spiritual combat. We must do the same. Knowing the Bible verses is an important step in helping us to resist the devil’s attacks, but we must also obey the Bible. Note that Satan had memorised Scripture, but failed to obey it. Knowing and obeying the Bible helps us to follow God’s teachings, remembering God is the only One who can satisfy the desires we have in the right way and at the right time. 

                                                             Prayer

Holy Spirit, we thank and praise You for all the help You give to us when we face the tactics and strategies of the enemy, we can use God’s Word to combat the battle’s we are faced with. Through the precious name and Blood of Jesus Christ, You sanctify us with Your truth. Your Word equips and empowers us and gives us the confidences needed to fight the good fight in faith. We praise and bless You, for all the help You give to us daily; in the precious name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

“Don’t store up treasures here on earth where they can erode away or may be stolen. Store them in heaven where they will never lose their value and are safe from thieves. If your profits are in heaven, your heart will be there too. (Matthew 6:19-21 TLB)

Jesus has made it clear, we must not store our treasures on earth where they can erode away or maybe stolen. We must store our treasures in heaven where they will never lose their value and are safe from thieves. If we have the wrong treasures this could lead to our hearts being in a wrong place. We must be careful to watch what controls us, whether we admit it or not. We must not waste our lives pursuing earthly treasures, but pursue treasures of eternal worth. Nothing is more worthwhile than getting to know the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit of God. As we get to know them, they want us to get to know others by helping them know the Trinity and the Godhead. He does not want us to wander aimlessly through life or drown in defeat and despair. We are the light of the world, and we can lead God’s people safely to Him with our life and love. We must not waste any time we may have as our time is limited.
                                                             Prayer

Holy Spirit, thank You for reminding me and making it very clear to me where my true treasures are. They are waiting for me in the Kingdom of Heaven. You make all things clear to me through the wisdom and discernment I receive from God. I choose to follow Him as He guides and leads me along the right path for my life. How grateful and thankful I am to God, for all of His teachings, He gives to me through the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. May I continue to walk in submission and obedience to God giving my heart completely to Him. Holy Spirit, guide and lead me along the path You want me to walk in the precious name of Christ. I praise and bless the name of our God for only He is worthy to be praised, adored, and loved through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

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

I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. Be as wary as serpents and harmless as doves. (Matthew 10:16 TLB)

In the world we will be surrounded by many who will not accept Jesus Christ, as Saviour and Lord. Jesus says, “I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. Be as wary as serpents and harmless as doves.” We must be aware of what is around us as we face similar hostility, but we are not to be sheeplike in our attitude but sensible and prudent. As God’s disciples we must look to our great Shepherd for protection. Their will be much opposition around us, but this is when we put our faith and hope in the One who is with us to help us overcome whatever the situation maybe. We must find the right balance between wisdom and vulnerability to accomplish the work God has sent us to do.

                                                          Prayer

Holy Spirit of God, I praise and thank You for granting me the wisdom and understanding to be aware of what is around me. Thank You I can lean, depend, and rely upon You to show me what I am up against in the world; and deal with each situation I face in a godly and righteous way. I look to my ‘Great Shepherd’, for protection, trusting Him that He will deliver me through the opposition in my life through my faith in Him.  My confidence is completely in Him, through the precious and holy name of Jesus Christ my precious Lord. Amen,

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

Tell me where you want me to go and I will go there. May every fiber of my being unite in reverence to your name. (Psalm 86:11 TLB)
When we call out to God for His divine intervention, we can almost see, taste, and hear God’s response to our requests. Each of us faces thousands of small choices each day, choices that make up the fabric of daily life. We must align our choices with the instructions given to us by God’s Word, and when we align our lives with God’s will, we’ll receive His peace, His joy, His comfort. We must not struggle against God’s will, on the contrary; we must always walk in obedience and follow His will. I will instruct you (says the Lord) and guide you along the best pathway for your life; I will advise you and watch over your progress. (Psalm 32:8 TLB), what God has said, He will do, this is where we gain confidence and faith in God alone. 
                                                              Prayer

Holy Spirit, thank You when I call out to You, for Your divine intervention, I can almost see, taste, and hear Your response to my requests. As I am faced with thousands of choices let  my choices align with Your perfect will. Your Word is where I receive my peace, joy, and comfort. I do not want to struggle against Your will, but on the contrary; want to walk in obedience to Your will. You will instruct me, and guide me along the best pathway for my life; You will advice me and watch over my progress. How grateful and thankful I am to You, O God; when I hear Your still, small voice whispering in my heart Your directions and choices for me to take daily, I give thanks and praise to You; in the name of Jesus. Amen.

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

But when you do a kindness to someone, do it secretly—don’t tell your left hand what your right hand is doing. And your Father, who knows all secrets, will reward you. 
(Matthew 6:3-4 TLB)

When Jesus says not to tell your left hand what your right hand is doing, He is teaching us that our motives for giving to God and to others must be pure. It is easy to give with mixed motives, to do something for someone if it benefits us in return. To be sure our motives are not selfish, we should do our good deeds quietly or in secret, with no thought of reward. Jesus says we should check our motives in three areas: generosity, prayer, and fasting. Those acts should not be self-centred but God-centred, done not to make us look good but to make God look good. The reward God promises is not material, and it is never given to those who seek it. We must ask ourselves would we still do these good deeds if no one would ever know about it?

                                                             Prayer

O my precious God, I rely upon the Holy Spirit of God, to show me the right way You want me to act. I desire my motives with others to be pure and in the centre of God's will. When I do something for others, let it be governed and controlled by the Holy Spirit of God, with Him showing me the right thing He wants me to do. Do not let me do anything in my own will and strength, let everything I do be in the strength of God, through the Holy Spirit of God; bringing all the glory, honour, and praise to God in the precious name of Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.

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

“Take care! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired, for then you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven.” When you give a gift to a beggar, don’t shout about it as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you in all earnestness, they have received all the reward they will ever get. (Matthew 6:1-2 TLB)

We must be careful how we do good deeds. We do not need to be admired by others, for then we will lose the reward from our Father in heaven. When we give to someone in need, we must do it secretly; and not do as the hypocrites do – blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! They performed their deeds with the intention of bringing glory to themselves rather than to God. Their reward was the praise of people. They will receive no reward from God. On the other hand, everything we do, we must do for the glory of Our Father and Jesus Christ. We should let others experience Jesus love, His kindness, and His mercy through us in the way we treat them. Without drawing attention to ourselves, give our help and encouragement. Give it without the expectation or hope of receiving anything in return. In doing so we will lay up treasures in heaven, where the true treasures are.

                                                                  Prayer

O my precious God, thank You for teaching me these lessons. I must be careful how I do good deeds for others, and when I do those good deeds, I must do it secretly with my Father. I lean, rely, depend upon the Holy Spirit of God, to show me how those deeds are to be done, through the almighty name of Jesus Christ. I bring all the glory, honour, praise, to God, though the name of Jesus. Amen.

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

But I say: Don’t resist violence! If you are slapped on one cheek, turn the other too.
(Matthew 5:39 TLB)
When we are wounded and often wronged by others how do we handle it? Before I knew the Lord, I ranted and raged, was angry, rebelled and react to others completely in a wrong way. It has taken me many years to come to a place of peace. The Holy Spirit of God, has helped me beyond measure. He made me feel so uncomfortable within my spirit, heart, and soul when I stepped out of God’s will. Jesus said we should do good to those who have wronged us! It is quite hard and difficult to begin doing this, but as I prayed and asked God for wisdom, guidance and understanding, answers came to me as I read the Scriptures; God helped me to overcome the evil around me. Our desire should not be to keep score against others and what they have done to us, but through Jesus Christ; we must learn to love and forgive others. This is not natural – it is supernatural. Only God can give us the strength to love as He does. Instead of planning vengeance, it is always best to pray for those who hurt you. Those in the world will wound us in many ways. They will speak evil to you and about you. As Christ’s followers, we should respond to those who are hateful towards us in the same manner as Jesus did, not taking revenge or in any way return evil for evil. Forgive them. Pray for them and bless them. Let them see Jesus in you. 

                                                           Prayer

Heavenly Father, I thank and praise and thank You through Jesus Christ, and in the power of the Holy Spirit of God; You have dealt with all the wounds I had before I knew You, and after I have known Your name. How grateful and thankful I am towards You, O God; for Your amazing grace, love, and mercy, You have shown towards me in the precious name of Jesus Christ. He has washed, cleansed, and purified me from all my sin by washing me I the Blood of Christ. Amen.

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

“Because of your little faith,” Jesus told them. “For if you had faith even as small as a tiny mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move!’ and it would go far away. Nothing would be impossible.”(Matthew 17:20 TLB)

I didn’t want to be an ordinary disciple. More than anything I wanted to be a disciple of Christ whose faith can move mountains. I asked God to grant me the mustard seed faith, in order to move mountains. A mustard seed is the tiniest seed imaginable, yet with Christ it has immense power. How amazing is that! I knew nothing was impossible for God to do. It was the power of God, plus my faith, that would move the mountains in me and also in the lives of others through prayer. Even though my faith needed to develop, I was determined nothing would stand in my way from me learning from God’s Spirit. I was in the Holy Spirit’s, ‘School of Teaching.’ I trusted in God’s power to act my faith. I examine my faith, making sure I am trusting God’s power, and not in my own ability to produce results.

                                                                Prayer 

Holy Spirit, grant to me the faith of a mustard seed. I need this kind of faith to move mountains. I know nothing is impossible for God to do. With God's power and my faith, I will be able to move any mountain that stands in the way of God's will being done. I am vessel and instrument to be used for God’s glory, kingdom, and name. I have the true grit and determination that God’s will, will be done in my life and in the lives of others. I pray this prayer in the precious name of Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.

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

And we are sure of this, that He will listen to us whenever we ask Him for anything in line with His will. And if we really know He is listening when we talk to Him and make our requests, then we can be sure that He will answer us. (1 John 5:14-15 TLB)

The Holy Spirit of God, has emphasised here that it is God’s will that matters the most and not our own will. When we communicate with God, we do not need to demand what we want; rather we discuss with Him through prayer, what He wants for us. We must align our prayers to His will. We must continually ask Him for more faith, so that we can keep the faith He has given to us. This means our faith maybe increased within our hearts, minds, spirits, and souls; enabling us to believe through the Holy Spirit of God, what He wants us to learn and do, through Jesus Christ our Lord. This helps our faith muscles to grow, having confidence in Him, and not in ourselves. We see our prayer lives become stronger and our faith increased deeper. When we have confident faith to believe He will answer our requests, then we can be sure He will answer us.

                                                                  Prayer

Holy Spirit, thank You for helping me understand the importance of prayer and faith. Daily, I need to ask You for the help for my prayer and faith to grow. How grateful I am to You for everything You have already given to me. I can never praise, adore, and love You enough for the relationship I have with our Heavenly Father, His Son Jesus Christ; and the Holy Spirit of God. I bring to You all my praise and thanksgiving now and always in Jesus Christ’s precious name. Amen.

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

But I say: Love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way you will be acting as true sons of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust too. (Matthew 4:44-45 TLB)

I feel it is really hard at times to love my enemies. Especially, when you know they are persecuting you. But this is what God wants us to do, act like we are true sons of God by praying for them. He shines His light into the darkness and gives us the light for the evil and the good, and then He sends rain on the just and on the unjust, through the Holy Spirit of God. He has called us to love those we might otherwise hate and those who hate us. We must recognise hatred and deal with this behaviour pattern. It makes us angry, judgmental, and cause us to have vengeful hearts. And we must never gossip about others, because this will damage their reputation, and this is a form of hatred too. God didn't come to earth to destroy lives but to save them. We must seek to require the characteristics and nature of Jesus Christ, trusting the Holy Spirit of God to help us, to remain in the purpose and will of God.

                                                               Prayer

Holy Spirit, thank You for teaching me to love my enemies! I pray for those who persecute me! Help me to receive the very nature of God, giving me His characteristics, nature and personality in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord. Without Christ I unable to do anything, but in Christ Jesus; I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. I praise and bless You for everything You are teaching me in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.

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

I say emphatically that anyone who listens to my message and believes in God who sent me has eternal life, and will never be damned for his sins, but has already passed out of death into life. (John 5:24 TLB)

When I became a Christian, my life changed radically. Jesus, had forgiven me all of my sins, and I knew He didn't hold anything against me any longer. Making my peace with God was the best thing I had ever done. I had such joy and happiness inside my heart, a love which I couldn’t contain. I had never felt anything like this love before. It was like my heart was on fire, it was bursting with love, joy, and happiness. I wanted to share this new found life I had with God, with everyone I met. I became a brand new person inside and out. A new life within me had begun. All the new things I was experiencing were from God. I believed in Jesus Christ, He is the Son of God; and now I was reconciled to Him through the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. He had adopted me as His child, and nothing would ever separate me from His love or life again. 

                                                                          Prayer 

Heavenly Father, how grateful and thankful we are for Your precious gift of life through Jesus Christ our precious Lord. We can never thank you enough for everything He has done for us. We praise and bless You now and always. Amen.
