Happy Father’s Day

Image result for happy fathers day

 

Dear God,

I thank you for this day. Thank you for gracing us with your one and only Son Jesus. I am grateful for your precious gift. Lord, I thank you for your sons here on Earth and for those who you have called home. Today is not an easy day for many of your children so Lord I have come as I am asking that your hands will rest upon each and everyone of your children. Every hurt, pain and tear, we surrender unto you. Your word reminds us that you are a “ father to the fatherless, a defender of widows” (Psalm 68:5) You are the greatest comforter. You are our source of peace. I pray for anyone reading this that you will find rest in Christ alone. For as many whose father’s are alive but are absent in their lives, I ask their Lord for your love and forgiveness to overflow in their relationship. Lord, I ask that they will reconcile with their Father’s. Let your will be done. For those whose father’s are present, may they cherish every moment with their fathers. For those whose father’s are no longer here with them, may your hands touch their hearts. May they experience your love in a deeper and fresh way daily. Father, I pray and ask that you will raise up a generation of men who will be leaders in their home but also in every areas of their lives; men who aren’t afraid of praying and professing your word. Heavenly Father, I ask that you will strengthen your sons. I ask that you will shoulder their burdens and draw them closer to your presence. May they have intimacy with you all the days of their lives. May they never lose sight of who you are. I pray that you will give each of your sons peace, wisdom and knowledge in every decision that they have to make. Your word remind us that “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” (Proverbs 4:7).  Father, I thank you every one of your sons. May you bless and sustain them each and every day of their life. Thank you Lord for who are you. In Jesus name, Amen.

With love,

Your Child

 Happy Father’s Day to every father around the world. You are loved. You are   appreciated. You are special. Have a wonderful day. God loves you 🙂

“But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” ~Joshua 24:15

Release!

“Cast out this bondwoman and her son.”
Ge 21:10 NKJV

LET IT GO!

When Abraham tried to hurry the plan of God and fulfill it through well-intentioned but misguided human effort, Ishmael was born. Perhaps you have tried something similar yourself. We all have our “Ishmaels”—a good idea that wasn’t a God idea. And it can complicate your life. So God told Abraham, “Cast out this bondwoman and her son.” In other words: “It’s time to deal with your past and clean out your closet. This thing is holding you back, and until you deal with it you can’t move forward to your destiny. Get it out of your life and don’t look back!” Sometimes your miracle (Isaac) and your mistake (Ishmael) can live together for a while under the same roof. Things can be so good in one area of your life, yet so bad in another. But there comes a time when God says, “Because of the plans I have for you, you must put this thing out of your life.” And that’s not easy. It’s painful letting go of what your flesh craves or cherishes. But you have only two options: Be led by your emotions and miss out on God’s best, or say, “As much as I love this person or thing, I love the Lord more.” When you’re willing to walk away from something you thought you had to have because you love God more, that’s called “the sacrifice of praise” (Heb 13:15). And when you offer it up to God, you position yourself to experience a new level of His blessing. Is God speaking to you today about something similar in your life? If so, let it go!

Divine Direction

“And has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord.”
Ac 17:26-27 NKJV

GOD’S TIMING, LOCATION, AND PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE

Let’s look at three phrases in this Scripture: (1) “And has determined their preappointed times.” Your parents may not have wanted you, but God did. He scheduled the moment of your birth, has a purpose for your life, and you are constantly on His mind. If that sounds too good to be true, read on: “You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God” (Ps 139:16-17 NLT). And that’s a foundation to build your self-worth on! (2) “And the boundaries of their dwellings.” God’s will for you requires being in the right place; that’s why He sets “boundaries.” Sometimes He will say, “Don’t go there, I want you over here,” or “Don’t stay here, I want you over there.” Because someone else goes somewhere and succeeds, doesn’t mean you will. “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives” (Ps 37:23 NLT). Include God in every detail of your life, for where He guides, He provides. (3) “So that they should seek the Lord.” Every act of God in your life is designed to increase your dependence on Him. Every assignment He gives you will require His participation in order to succeed. With all his great talents, Paul acknowledged, “Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God” (2Co 3:5 NKJV).

My Identity Is Found In Christ

Discovering Identity

In the kingdom, knowing Him is knowing yourself. This is how you discover your true, godly, kingdom identity. Notice the exchange between Peter and Jesus. When Peter has the revelation that Jesus is the Christ, look at what he was rewarded with. Jesus looked into the DNA and the future of Peter, pointed his finger and said, “YOU ARE PETER (Peter means “rock”) and on THIS rock I will build my church.”

When Peter discovered who Jesus was, he discovered who he was (identity) and what he was born for (destiny). This is true kingdom identity! This moment would stay with Peter for the rest of his life, no doubt for the hard times, but to also give thanks in the satisfied moments of his life’s work. God wants the same for you and make this invitation to answer the question, “Who do you say that I am?” How you answer will unlock identity and destiny – Get ready!

God bless you all. Have a great day 🙂

The Pursuit

Happy New Month of June. Our month of pursuit, restoration and recovery. What another day that God has blessed us to see. Where would we be if not for God by our side? We can do nothing without Christ. May God bless you and carry every assignment concerning you. It’s a new day. Today is God’s gift to us. We didn’t deserve it but by His Grace, we are alive. May all that you are praying and trusting God for come to pass. May you not lose sight of who God is in this month. May you grow deeper in your walk with God. In your pursuit, may the Holy Spirit guide you into all truth as you have intimacy with the Lord. God is doing something new but we must learn to fix our eyes on Him. May God’s hands rest upon you and your family/loved ones. Have a lovely month & stay rested in the presence of God.

“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten– the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm — my great army that I sent among you. You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed.” -Joel 2:26

Make Room In Your Heart

Make Room for the New

We all want situations and people around us to change, but rarely do we see those areas change. In fact, many times when I have brought these kind of concerns up in prayer, the response from the Lord is, “Son, if you want them or that to change, then you need to change.” The “new” we are wanting around has to first take root inside of us. So here’s a question we need to ask when wanting people and things to change – “Am I making room for the new?” The excitement of new is thrilling, but we need to set a standard inside of ourselves when it comes to new.

“New” is not repackaging what you already have, it’s pioneering something fresh in your life! When you begin to desire “NEW,” everything changes – priorities, standards, and focuses. A hunger for “NEW” will give you an appetite for unfamiliar territory and will make the impossible look attractive. The hunger for new can be a gift if you are willing to change. Starting today, give yourself permission to make room for the new!

Verse: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. ~Isaiah 43:18-19

Note From Me To You:

Five whole months, God has carried us through each day. I can’t believe how time flies so quickly. I can’t even explain it but in these past few days, I’ve seen Isaiah 43 in a lot of things I’ve been reading. I was so surprised when I read this today and I came across this verse again. I’ve read this verse numerous of times but I was just so blown how many times I came across it this week. Another verse that appeared a few times includes Romans 12:1-2 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Throughout the week, I usually have a verse I focus on. My key verse for this week was 2 Corinthians 12:9 “He said to me “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses so that Christ power may rest on me.”

As we embark into a new month of June, I pray that you will stay focused on God. You will not lose sight of who He is. May is almost over but God has been faithful. That is the God that we serve. Continue to remain in His word. Praise Him through every season and remember always that God is with you. Enjoy every moment of this day and make room in your heart and every part of your being for what God is getting  ready to do.

Until next time, take care and stay rooted in Christ. Jesus loves you 🙂

Moving Forward

 

“Don’t keep going over old history…be present.”
Isa 43:18 TM

YOU CAN START AGAIN

Although it’s true that we all fail, here’s something worth remembering: You can fail successfully. How? By learning from your failures and growing stronger and wiser through them. Surrendering your future to your past just means you drown in remorse and hopelessness. But if you practice “failing forward,” you can experience future success. So acknowledge your failings, see yourself cleansed by the blood of Jesus, let go of your disappointment in yourself, and get up and try again. At one point in Elijah’s life, he got so depressed that he prayed he might die: “‘I have had enough, Lord,’ he said. ‘Take my life; I am no better than my ancestors’” (1Ki 19:4 NIV). Later when he was strengthened by God’s grace, he emerged from his depression a new man with a new mission in life (See vv. 15-16 NIV). After he’d denied Christ openly, Peter was forgiven. Despite his weakness he was restored, and became the apostle who would “strengthen his fellow apostles” and build the New Testament Church (See Lk 22:31-32). It’s not a matter of how badly or how often you’ve failed—it’s a matter of what God can make you when you accept His grace, get up again, and allow Him to empower you to do better. Peter is proof that God takes us when we are weak, and speaks and acts through us in ways that bring glory to Him alone! (See 1Co 1:28). Will God sometimes correct you? Yes, He’s a good parent, but He won’t discard you. So the word for you today is—you can start again.
