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.

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

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. Thank You for welcoming me as Your guest, with Your blessings overflowing upon me through Jesus Christ.  Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with You forever in Your home.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

And anyone who gives up his home, brothers, sisters, father, mother, wife, [*] children, or property, to follow me, shall receive a hundred times as much in return, and shall have eternal life. (Matthew 19:29 TLB)

                                                             Prayer

Heavenly Father, I will give everything up for the Gospel of Christ. I will follow You, and I shall receive a hundred times as much in return, and I shall have eternal life. 
My family and friends and neighbours have left me because I follow You, but I cannot live my life without You. Everything I have on earth is temporal, and everything I have gained is eternal life. I know that my momentary sacrifices are storing up treasures in heaven. This is not why I have made sacrifices. I am simply answering Your call to deny myself, take up my cross and be harnessed to You by following You. I have experienced the unsurpassed joy of knowing Christ Jesus intimately. So although I have given up everything, I sacrificed nothing – for my eternal gain is far greater than my temporal loss. My great reward is in the life in Jesus Christ and in heaven. Amen.

“I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”
(John 10:11 TLB)

                                                                   Prayer

Heavenly Father, there have been times in my life when I have felt like a complete failure. It was only when I acknowledge my sin before You, my whole life began to change. Father, You have shown me what true love is. It is more than I ever could have imagined. You don’t love me because I have earned Your love. And You don’t stop loving me because I've earned Your disdain. You love me because of who You are through the Lord Jesus Christ and in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. When I was dead in sin, having no hope whatsoever, You loved me with an indescribable love. You sent Your beloved Son to live and die for me. You could not unite with me because of my sin. But now, through my faith in Jesus Christ, I have exchanged my sin for Your righteousness. Because of Your atoning sacrifice, I have been cleansed and purified and clothed with Your righteousness. My worth is not based on what I have achieved or earned. It is established forever by Your love for me and proven by what You have done to give me gifts that are greater than any others – mercy, forgiveness, cleansing, and eternal life. You laid down Your life for me. This is how much You love me, and I am truly grateful and thankful for everything You have done for me through Jesus Christ my precious Lord, and through the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. Amen.

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

Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father. Only the Father knows the Son, and the Father is known only by the Son and by those to whom the Son reveals him.
(Matthew 11:27 TLB)

                                                               Prayer

Holy Spirit, everything in my life has been entrusted to Christ Jesus by our Father. Only the Father knows the Son, and the Father is known only by the Son and by those to whom the Son reveals Him. My Father’s ways are far above my ways as heaven is above earth. Jesus, You want me to know Our Father. I will stand in awe of His majesty and glory. I will shudder in amazement at His love, His righteousness, and His justice. Jesus, You don’t want me to merely to know about Him; You want me to know Him. I will look at You and Your behaviour. As I look to You, I will witness Our Father firsthand. I shall see the way He dealt with people, I will see His  dealings. Jesus, You did exactly what pleased Him. You lived Your life on earth through Him. I shall listen to His words. Every word I utter let it be at His command. Let His words – be perfectly expressed and let me act upon His words. As I do, Jesus, and the Father and the Holy Spirit of God, will come and make Their home within me. He will reveal the Father, and the Son to me and through the Holy Spirit of God, this will be my greatest joy in all my life forever and always in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Jesus Is The Good Shepherd‘

"I am the Good Shepherd." The Good Shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
(John 10:11 TLB)

                                                              Prayer

Holy Spirit, thank You for showing me; Jesus is the Good Shepherd who laid down His life for me. I am grateful and thankful to Him for this. My old sinful nature has been crucified with Christ Jesus, and it is I who no longer live; but Christ God who lives in me. This life that I now live in this body, I live by faith in the Son of God who loves me and who died for me. Today, I take up my cross and sword and follow Him and I will be harnessed to Him in everything I do. Being a true follower of Christ is so important to me. He alone can take me where no other Shepherd can lead me. He alone gives me the eternal life  and I shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch me out of His hand. He protects me through this life and He leads me safely into the next. 
Only His sheep have His promise of living with Him forever in the kingdom of Our Father. He even today, intercedes for me on my behalf before the Father. My life today is merely the introduction to the life He has prepared for me. He and I have so much to accomplish during my brief time on the earth. I shall listen to His voice and follow Him. I shall praise, adore, love and worship Him now and forever more bringing all the praise and glory to God my Father, through Jesus Christ’s my precious name, and in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. Amen.

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

Happy are those who strive for peace—they shall be called the sons of God.
(Matthew 5:9 TLB)

                                                                Prayer

Father God, I shall be happy and I will strive for peace – I am called a daughter of God. 
Father, in this world conflict defines humanity in it’s fallen state. Many are engaged in active conflict with the Father and His ways because they want to be god of their own lives. Being self-centred also keeps us in conflict with other people. When we are born-again, our nature changed. 
Father God, it is You who rule over my life, and because of this the conflict I’d had, has now receded; because I willingly have yielded to the promptings of the Holy Spirit of God. My whole desire is to walk in complete submission, and obedience to obey the teachings of Christ. If I experience active or subtle conflict with others, it’s because I demand my way and judge or condemn others in their ways. Father God, You are  calling me out of the conflict. Father, You want me to be peacemaker, and enter into a greater peace with You, following and trusting You, so that Your peace does not end in me. It must flow out of my heart to others. Let me be an active peacemaker replacing criticism and gossip with love and encouragement. You made peace with me through Jesus, He took my punishment on the cross. Father, help me to influence others by becoming a peacemaker just like You, for the honour, praise, and glory of Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.

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

Pray in this way for kings and all others who are in authority over us, or are in places of high responsibility, so that we can live in peace and quietness, spending our time in godly living and thinking much about the Lord. [*] (1 Timothy 2:2 TLB)

                                                                 Prayer

Holy Spirit, I pray for others who are in authority over me, or are in places of high responsibility, so that I can live in peace and quietness, spending my time in godly living and thinking much about the Lord. 
I seek to live each day being disciplined, having honesty, and faith, so at least two things will happen: integrity becomes a habit, and God’s blessings will be upon me for my obedience to Him. 
Living a life of integrity, is not always the easiest way, but I know it is always the right way … and God clearly intends that I should live this way.
Let me live my life out in the character of Jesus Christ, then I shall sum up every right decision, every honest word, every noble thought, and every heartfelt prayer. It will be forged on the anvil of honourable work and polished by the twin virtues of generosity and humility. My character is built slowly over a lifetime and is a precious thing – difficult to develop, wonderful to witness. As a thoughtful adult, I must seek to live each day with discipline, honesty, and faith. I want to make this a habit to be in the centre of God’s will each day, I invite Him to be in the centre of my day, following His plan and purpose that He has made for me; in the almighty and precious name of Jesus Christ, being dependant upon my precious Lord; and walking in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God, always and forever more. Amen.

And it is he who will supply all your needs from his riches in glory because of what Christ Jesus has done for us. (Philippians 4:19 TLB)

                                                                 Prayer

O my precious God, You have promised to supply all my needs from Your riches in glory because of what Christ Jesus has done for me. I understand that no one man – no one person – can meet all my needs only Jesus Christ can. I trust in God through faith and I relinquish all my desires to Him, through the supernatural power of the Hoy Spirit of God. 
Father, You do not want me to look to a man/woman for my needs not even my husband, but I do look to God, asking Him to meet my needs in accordance to His riches in glory. I know Your capabilities are far greater than all human abilities. I have learnt this in the time I have known You personally. I shall always be thankful and grateful to God for rescuing me from the darkness of this world, and now through Jesus Christ, He enables me to live a pure life and live in the pure light of Jesus Christ for His kingdom and glory and name now and forever more. Amen.

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

But when the Father sends the Comforter [*] instead of me—and by the Comforter I mean the Holy Spirit—he will teach you much, as well as remind you of everything I myself have told you. (John 14:26 TLB)

                                                                Prayer

O my precious God, thank You for sending to me the Comforter; the Holy Spirit of God – He is teaching me so much, and He reminds me of everything You have told me. 
I thank You for each situation I find myself in. I can and will respond to the Holy Spirit of God, and ask Him for His wisdom and understanding in making the right choices in accordance to the will of my Father. I shall make sure the choices I make will glorify the Father. I need the Holy Spirit of God, He is vital to the ministry God gives to me. I hide His Words within my heart, mind, body, spirit, and soul. He reminds me of the things to come. He will then empower me with grace to obey His words at that moment. When I act in faith and take the step of obedience, I will find myself living in the perfect centre of His will. I praise and thank the Holy Spirit for everything He is teaching me, being thankful and grateful to Him through the almighty name of Jesus Christ my precious Lord. Amen.

“I have pleaded in prayer for you that your faith should not completely fail. [*] So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen and build up the faith of your brothers.” (Luke 22:32 TLB)

                                                                     Prayer

O my precious God, You have pleaded in prayer for me that my faith should not completely fail. I have repented and turned to You again, now You will strengthen me and build up my faith so I can strengthen my brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ. 
Father, You know there has been times when I have turned my back on You, choosing to put my desire above You're desires for me and Your calling on my life. Your word to me is the same as You gave to Peter: returning to You isn't the end; it's the beginning. You do not want me to focus on myself. You want me to strengthen Your followers. You want them to see how Your words apply to their situations and by the choices they make. I shall let them see You in the way I live my life. In addition to proclaiming Your love and mercy, through my testimony and witness; let me lead and teach them to abide in You. I shall love them unconditionally, not with my emotions and feelings but in the way I behave. Strengthen my brothers and sisters through the Holy Spirit of God, and in the truth of His Word; then we will store up treasures in the heavens through Jesus Christ and in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. Amen.

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

God has given each of you some special abilities; be sure to use them to help each other, passing on to others God’s many kinds of blessings. (1 Peter 4:10 TLB)

                                                                  Prayer

O my God, You have given me some special abilities; I shall be sure to use those abilities to help others. I shall pass on those abilities through God’s Word, with many kinds of blessings. Each person should use the gifts You have given to them in serving others, as faithful stewards of Your grace in it's various forms. God has given me an array of talents, and He has given me unique opportunities to share through talents with the world. Father, You the Creator intend for me to use my talents. I will honour You by sharing these gifts and talents with those around me? I shall ask the Holy Spirit of God to make me wise, then I shall strive to make to most of my God-given talents – and while I’m at it, I shall encourage my family and friends to do likewise. Today, l make this promise to myself to God: I vow to cultivate my gifts and use them to make my corner of the world a better place to live. This is the best way I can show all my gratitude to God for the talents and opportunities He has entrusted to my care. When God crowns my merits, He is crowning nothing other than His gifts towards me and I shall honour, praise, adore, and love Him for everything He has bestowed upon me to further the Gospel of Christ Jesus to the world. Amen.

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

Then David went into the Tabernacle and sat before the Lord and prayed, “O Lord God, why have you showered your blessings on such an insignificant person as I am?(2 Samuel 7:18 TLB)

                                                                Prayer

O my precious Lord, I sit before You daily and have prayed this prayer, “O Lord God, why have You showered Your blessings on such an insignificant person like me. And now, in addition to everything else, You speak of giving me an eternal dynasty! Such generosity is far beyond any human standard! O Lord God! What can I say? For You know what I am like! You are doing all these things just because You promised to and because You want to! How great You are, Lord God! I have never heard of any other God like You. And there is no other God as glorious as You. What other nation in all the earth has received such blessings as Israel, Your people? For You have rescued Your chosen nation in order to bring glory to Your name. You have done great miracles to destroy Egypt and it's gods.You chose Israel to be Your people forever, and You became our God. And now, Lord God, do as You have promised concerning me and my family. And may You be eternally honoured when You have established Israel as Your people and have establish my dynasty before You. For You have revealed to me, O Lord of heaven, God of Israel, that I am the first of a dynasty which will rule Your people forever; that is why I have been bold enough to pray this prayer of acceptance. For You are indeed God, and Your words are truth; and You have promised me these good things – so do as You have promised! Bless me and my family forever! May our dynasty continue on and on before you; Lord God, You have promised it to me through Jesus Christ my precious Lord. Amen.

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

The good ground represents the heart of a man who listens to the message and understands it and goes out and brings thirty, sixty, or even a hundred others into the Kingdom.” (Matthew 13:23 TLB)

                                                                  Prayer

O my precious God, the good ground represents the heart of a man who listens to the message and understands it and goes out and brings thirty, sixty, or even a hundred others into the Kingdom. I have heard Your Word. I have understood Your message of the Father’s boundless love for me. I have understood Your righteousness and judgment. I have understood that my sin created an impossible debt and that the Father chose You to lay down Your life as a ransom for me. I understood Your call to deny myself, and take up my cross and follow You daily, and I follow You. I shall not be discouraged. All Your followers struggle against powers and principalities. We are plundering Satan’s kingdom, and he does not surrender his subjects without a fight. You have called me to stand against the strength of my old nature and the attractions and influences of the world. None of this happens without a struggle. But I am of the good seed and soil. To win my battles, I must daily sow Your words into my heart. The Holy Spirit of God, will then use Your words to guide me and produce His fruit in my life. I bring all the honour and praise to the glory to my Father, through the precious name of Jesus Christ my precious Lord; and in the supernatural of the Holy Spirit of God. Amen.

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

The hard path where some of the seeds fell represents the heart of a person who hears the Good News about the Kingdom and doesn’t understand it; then Satan [*] comes and snatches away the seeds from his heart. (Matthew 13:19 TLB)

                                                                 Prayer 

Precious God, You have shown me the hard path is where some of the seeds fall to the ground; they represents the heart of a person who hears the Good News about the Kingdom of God and they don't understand it; then Satan comes and snatches away the seeds from there heart. The message of the Kingdom of God is the same today as it was at the beginning. It’s a message about the Father, His love, His righteousness, and His judgment. It’s about Christ and His redeeming sacrifice. It’s about His sheep. They hear His voice, deny themselves, take up their crosses daily and follow Him. It's a message about dying to our selfish desires and living instead for Our Father and His Kingdom. The seed “sown along the path” refers to those who hear this message, and even though they initially embrace it, they don’t understand it. It is contrary to their self-centredness and conflicts with their desires. Because they don’t understand it, the Evil One steals the message from their hearts, and they go back to their old ways. They trade that which is eternal for that which is temporal. This is not me. His truth has been revealed, I have embraced it, and I continue to hold tight to it. I continue to bathe my heart in His Words everyday, and I will be His true disciple. I will continue to know the truth, and the truth will make me free. I bring all my praise, thanksgiving, adoration, and love to the One who saved and rescued me from the evil one of this world through the precious name of Jesus Christ, I give my thanks. Amen.

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

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 10:28-30 TLB)

                                                                   Prayer

O my precious God, You have given me eternal life and I shall never perish. No one shall snatch me away from You, for You are more powerful than anyone else, so no one can kidnap me from You. You and the Father are One. 
When I was born again in Christ, my Father and Jesus lifted me out of the miry clay of sin, they have kept me from dropping back into that pit again. They will never abandon me and will not allow anyone else to snatch me out of Their hands. Not even Satan himself can do that. My security does not depend upon my strength. It depends entirely upon God’s strength through the Holy Spirit of God. My greatest shelter from Satan’s attacks is being close by Christ’s side. He is with me even in my most difficult and severe trials. Even in death I am secure. He has given me eternal life. He, is with me now, and nothing can separate me from Him and His love. When I am feeling vulnerable and insecure, it is only because I am not abiding in Him and His Words. So, let me feast on His words today and everyday. It’s the only way to grow even deeper and closer to Him forever and I commit and commend this prayer to Him for the namesake of Christ Jesus. Amen.

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

                                                                      Prayer

Father, I will always come to You – and You will never, never reject me through the precious name of Jesus Christ. You know how hurt and wounded I have been. How I have been dishonoured by others, even those I have loved. This has caused me to wonder if there is any way I can be truly safe and secure. I have listened to You, Jesus. Our Father gave me to You, and I came to You. You will never throw me away. In You alone I am safe. You will never turn Your back on me, even when I fail. You came to save sinners, not to destroy them. I take Your yoke upon myself and walk with You. I bathe my heart and mind with Your words throughout each new day. Nothing is more devastating to Satan than Your followers who hold the Word of God deep in their hearts and are obedient to Our Father, Jesus Christ; and the Holy Spirit of God. I shall walk with the Trinity and the Godhead and watch Satan flee in the holy and precious name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

He would not have listened if I had not confessed my sins. But he listened! He heard my prayer! He paid attention to it! (Psalm 66:18-19 TLB)

                                                                 Prayer

Precious God, You would not have listen to me, if I had not confessed my sins before You, in the name of Jesus Christ. I do not want to entertain sin in my life any longer. I ask the Holy Spirit of God, to convict me of all sin that stands in the way of my walk with God. I want to do what is right and true before God, so that He will always listen and hear my prayers. I know I don’t do everything perfectly, so I ask You through the Holy Spirit of God, to enable and empower me to keep my heart pure and my hands clean. Your Word tells me that You will never withhold Your love from me or reject my prayers, but You do wait to listen if I allow sin to exist in my heart. Thank You for loving me enough to take time to tell me when I am walking in the wrong path, bringing me into the righteous path through Jesus Christ my precious Lord; enabling me and empowering me to do what is right in His sight. Amen.

But Jesus said,  “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)

                                                               Prayer

Father, I am so happy and grateful that You have sent me home to my family and friends, to tell them the wonderful things God has done for me; and how merciful and gracious You have been towards me. You always have understood my circumstances, struggles, and disappointments which have stolen my happiness from me. I have listen to You. Though adversity can knock me down, it cannot keep me down only if I let it. It knocks me down because it takes me by surprise. Whenever I remain in unhappiness, it is because I have allowed the Adversary to keep my heart focused on my circumstances and not on God. I allowed him to magnify the adversity, blinding me to everything My Father and You have given me. I have allowed the momentary raindrops of my circumstances to blind me to the vast ocean of eternal blessings that You have given me. My salvation and my relationship with You are eternal! I remain in unhappiness only because I close my eyes to the Father and to You and to everything You have given to me. I shall get back into Your Word and let them continually refresh and restore my heart and Your words will remind me of everything You have given to me. I can go and tell others the great things You have done for me in the glory, honour, and praise of Jesus Christ’s name. Amen.

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. 
(John 14:12 TLB)

                                                                Prayer

O my precious God, You have promised if I believe in You, I will do the works You did while You walked on earth. I do not know what kind of works You want me to do, however, I do know that You performed miracles, and they were only a small portion of Your works. As important as they were, Your other works were even more important. You were the Light of the World, showing the true worth of everything the Father loves and values. You not only testified to the truth with Your words, but You demonstrated the truth with Your life and Your works of righteousness. You performed works of compassions, works of love, works of mercy, and works of forgiveness. You performed works of patience and perseverance. And, of course, You performed works of serving, suffering, and sacrifice. The greatest works You performed were Your works of obedience to Our Father. Yes, when I believe in You, I too can do the miraculous works You did, when it's the Father’s will. But even more important than any miracle I will perform are Your works that I will do for the glory of Jesus Christ, and in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. Amen.

                                                        Prayer

Lord, You have told me the truth, anyone who believes in You, shall do the same miracles You have done, and even greater ones, because You are going to be with the Father. 
I know I can do these works because I believe in You. You have given me the faith, the authority and power to undertake for the glory and honour of Your name. I will be obedient to Your Word, and surrender my life to the Holy Spirit of God through Jesus Christ’s precious name. I hunger and thirst for Your Words, and deny myself and  everything that is in the world. I ask to be harnessed to You and be a true disciple of the Lord. I take up my cross and sword and follow You in total obedience to God. I follow Your teachings and strive to obey them standing on the Word of God in all things great and small. This is why Your promises to me, will come to pass, because I believe in faith in You. My faith will grow, and I will do the works that You did. My life is built upon the Rock and the Foundation of Christ Jesus. I will bring all the honour, praise, and glorify to my Father in Jesus’ precious name. Amen.

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

Don’t bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the Evil One. [*] Amen. 
(Matthew 6:13 TLB)

                                                      Prayer

Gracious Father, I ask You to help me to overcome the temptations Satan and his demons tempt me with. I know they are smarter than and more powerful than I could ever imagine. I live in their domain, in the world. Father, when I fall into temptations, the consequences in my life can be devastating to my soul, and to the lives of others and to the intimacy with the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit of God. 
Today, Father, I ask You to help me avoid all temptations and lead me into the paths away from temptations. I pray that You will deliver me from the path and power of the Evil One. Father, Satan knows what I react to, and once he creates a spark, he knows how to fan the flame within me. He knows how to appeal to every aspect of my human nature which fall short of God’s glorious ideal; yet now God declares me “not guilty” of offending Him if I trust in Jesus Christ, who in His kindness freely takes away my sins. Today, I pray that I never underestimate the power of Satan and his temptations, or even worse I overestimate my ability to overcome them. Each day, I shall abide in Your words, take up my cross and sword and follow You, being harnessed to You in everything I do. I praise and honour the precious name Jesus Christ, my precious Lord. Amen.
