Luke 18:1 & 8 “One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up… I tell you, he will grant justice to them quickly! But when the Son of Man returns, how many will he find on the earth who have faith?”
Before you delve into today’s devotional, I want you to spend some time studying Luke 8:1-8. I pray that you will be one of those that Jesus will find who have not given up on their prayer points. Read the rest of this entry
Hab. 2:1 (ERV) “I will stand like a guard and watch. I will wait to see what the Lord will say to me. I will wait and learn how he answers my questions.” (emphasis added)
We will pick up from where we left off yesterday and that is the benefits of intermittent fasting. The first benefit of intermittent fasting is it changes the functions of cells, genes, and hormones. Read the rest of this entry
Isa.40:30 “Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
You just have to wait on the Lord. The word “wait” in today’s Scripture reference is a complex word and it means to hope, to trust, to be entangled with, a sense of dependence on God. Waiting on God can include fasting but it is beyond fasting. Read the rest of this entry
2 Kings 17:36 But worship only the Lord, who brought you out of Egypt with great strength and a powerful arm. Bow down to him alone, and offer sacrifices only to him.
Ps. 147:11 [ERV] “The Lord enjoys people who worship him and trust in his faithful love.” God wants you to worship Him in spirit and in truth. He wants you to release your spirit, your soul, and your body to Him. Read the rest of this entry
Ps.127:1 [KJV] “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchmen waketh but in vain”
The God Will Do It Again service is one of our special services in God’s Favourite House. For us it is a season of letting go in the place of waiting, stepping up our prayers and praise, and letting God do what only He can do. Read the rest of this entry
Zech.4:6 “Then he said to me, “This is what the Lord says to Zerubbabel: It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies”.
God wants you to know today that for that level you desire to get to, the speed you are going to have is going to be supernatural. If you believe it then declare it out loud. My promotion shall not be by my power, or my strength, but by God’s Spirit. Ps.75:6 “For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. 7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.” Your speed is going to be supernatural.
Ps.50:5 “Bring my faithful people to me – those who made a covenant with me by giving sacrifices”
It is okay to start small. Just start and go forward! You and I must develop the willingness to do what it takes. God says, “Do not despise the days of little beginnings”. Do not despise what God rejoices in. A church invited a pastor to minister in their church and the day the pastor arrived, the church sent a car to the airport to pick him up. When this pastor came out of the airport and saw that the pick up car was a mini, he refused to enter the car. He claimed that his anointing was too big to enter a mini. Something is wrong Read the rest of this entry
Zech.4:10 Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand” [emphasis added].
The plumb line is the tool of your trade. We all have a plumb line. What is your plumb line? Chalk would be the plumb line for someone who is a teacher. A doctor’s plumb line would probably the stethoscope. For people who are into software, their plumb line would most likely be their computer. God needs to see the plumb line your hands. The Bible says, “…the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line…”
Haggai 2:7 “I will shake all the nations, and the treasures of all the nations will be brought to this Temple. I will fill this place with glory, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. 8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.”
Today we will kick off with our closing thought from yesterday, which is holding on to what God has placed a demand on renders that thing useless to you. Take the principle of tithing for instance, whoever decides to keep God’s ten percent will not only lose that ten percent, the person will end up losing everything. That is just how it works. Anything you do not honor God with becomes labeled for destruction. That is how it works.
Isa.40:29 He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.
The world has no sympathy for the weak. The only place where your weakness is valuable is in the Presence of God. That is the only place where, when we are weak, we are made strong. It is in His Presence that we can exchange our weakness for His strength. “Unto him that overcometh”, this phrase is repeated a couple of times in the Book of Revelations. The Bible does not have any message directed toward him that is defeated. That is very instructive to us. You have to be strong. Yes it is tough but you have to be strong Read the rest of this entry
