Thank you Lord for your protection against the enemy, Let us all shout.... Hallelujah!!! Our Lord is Great and Greatly to be Praised!!!
How often do you come to Him in thanks, how often is it just because you have a need? Imagine how you would feel if your children, spouse, significant other only came to you w needs. Never just I love you, or thank you being in my life, being here, on my team, all you labor of love. Imagine if they only said hi, oh BTW this is what I need. Oh I need it now, pls, pls, pls, and began to beg you. Did I go deep enough, are you convicted. I hope so, for your sake, all of our sake seek Him always. Thank Him always. Love on the Lord, for there is no one that Loves on each of us more.
““Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare. Give ear and come to me; listen, that you may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David. See, I have made him a witness to the peoples, a ruler and commander of the peoples. Surely you will summon nations you know not, and nations you do not know will come running to you, because of the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has endowed you with splendor.” ... “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. Isaiah 55:1-5, 8 NIV
“I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.” Psalm 34:1 NIV
Dear Lord Heavenly Father, Almighty, All Powerful. This morning I come to you in group prayer as we all touch and agree... Today is a new day, today is the day we all take head to your rightful command to Praise You. Please whisper into each of our ears, hold our hands and give us the strength to let go of these comfort zones of fear, worries, doubts and grasp instead your wonderful Glory, Might, Power, Grace, Mercy and Love!!! Thank You Lord, Hallelujah!!!
Well when you break it down all the commandments are to keep us, healthy, happy, safe, and able to be in His Presence... So then what. The command to Praise His Holy name, Hallelujah!! Through Praise we gain everything, so no wonder Father God is commanding this, again another show of His Great Love for us. In business we have a saying, "keep it simple stupid". Don't you think this is simple, His commands are simple, basic list of don't be stupid, it is simple follow these and LIVE!!!
You have to stop and really look at the entire context of the Bible, it's beauty, it's order, it's strategies for success, warnings, messages of peace and mighty power. I believe, from being a Christian almost my entire life (so maybe these words are accurate, at least my view); Christians are missing out!! Missing the most important messages in the Word. And only somewhat living, wouldn't you rather live Whole, totally what God wants for you? Start to change that today, take the command to heart and PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME, Smile, be Thankful in all things ... And watch what happens. Don't let people, the enemy, your own worries and negative tapes playing steal your Joy. Stop, it is within your power to make that choice, so start today, power up on Him!! His love, His Promises, His Powerful Joy He is offering you.
Of course there is much to learn, much growth He has for us, for YOU!! Let's keep it simple shall we, Just Do It!
PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME, HALLELUJAH!
“I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. I will glory in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” Psalm 34:1-8 NIV
“Let them praise the name of the Lord, for his name alone is exalted; his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.” Psalm 148:13 NIV
Today is the day the Lord has made, stand up and Rejoice, Stand and Praise Him!!! All you have has been given to you by Him, all you want and all you need has been provided by Him!! Thank You Lord, Hallelujah!!!!
All to often we get stuck in our own sorrows, our own pain, even our own errors and missed steps. It is time, time to rejoice that WE ARE RESCUED. HE HAS SAVED US, died for all of our sins past, present and future. There are no limits here, so it's okay to let go and forgive yourselves. Why are we carrying them around with us?? I am forgiving myself today, yes I have many things that just yesterday I weepped over, weeping to the Lord please forgive me, please give me a do over. I realized this morning in prayer we ALL have those do overs, we just need to take them. Like perfectly ripe grapes on a vine, waiting to be taken. Do you look at the grape and say, I'm not sure if it is real, I'm not sure if it will taste good... No way you know it's awesome, plop it in your mouth and smile with its sweetness. WOW it is just that simple, TYL PTL
Each of those grapes are your victories, sweet and perfect just waiting for you to Stand And Rejoice.
In HIS Perfect Plan, His Perfectly Planned Victories for YOU!!!
Let me say it like this, have faith, believe, KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE ASKED FOR IS ON ITS WAY!!! It's ALREADY DONE!!! Thank You Lord, Thank You Jehovah Jireh!!!
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:4-9 NIV
Pour The Word of God Over Your Mind Daily. Your mind is continually exposed to dirt, grime and dust of people's opinions.
Renew your mind with the TRUTH. God's Word! Schedule an appointment with the Holy Spirit and your Bible daily. The renewing of the mind is the key to changes within you. Key to His reveal for you, Key to your testimony and Your total Peace!! I was talking to a friend a few years ago, you know what of those, "what do you like to do, fun things, hobbies etc?" He said, "well I am a simple country boy from Louisiana. All I need is the Word, All I want is His Peace. Now believe me when he said that to me, I thought huh... what did he just say. Nothing is that simple I thought to myself.
Well now I know, he is right. It is that simple, it is a choice, our blessings of His Gift of Free Will. Choose to spend time in the Word. You will be heavily rewarded, spoken to, and loved on from our Heavenly Father like nothing else you have ever experienced. It is amazing really - and then what follows is Total Peace.
God's Words are like waterfalls -- perfect temperature, soft soothing water flowing with such power and wisdom - His Words washing and purifying your mind. WOW. Thank you Lord!
"That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word"
