We desire God's Mercy.
He desires Obedience.
We desire Victory.
He desires Exaltation.
A true MOVE of God requires relationship. If you are desiring a right now MOVE spend time with him. Most importantly, listen.
As the Holy Spirit was directing me today, he reminded me of the wind. I could feel the wind but I could not see the wind. I could feel the wind but I could not hold it in my hand. But I could feel I was in the presence of wind. The wind touched my face, it moved things around as I watched. When we are in relationship with God, we feel his presence. We may not see him or be able to hold his hand. But we can feel his touch, we see him moving things and people around us.
We know the presence of God.
Prayer: Lord God we thank you today for your presence. Move us where you want us to be. We desire to be obedient to your will and way. We desire to exalt you at all times. We give you glory! We give you praise! In Jesus name, Amen.
Scripture: As my glorious presence passes by, I will hide you in the crevice of the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove my hand and let you see me from behind. But my face will not be seen.
Exodus 33: 22-23 NLT
Preparing a recipe requires ingredients. For example, when preparing a cake, most require milk, eggs, flavoring, and sugar. If you forget an ingredient your cake will not rise. There is nothing like a hot, golden piece of pound cake when the right ingredients are put in the mixing bowl.
Christians need the right ingredients. Do you know God has put in everything you need to get out what He desires. However, have you heard the saying too many cooks in the kitchen? Are you adding extra seasonings to an already prepared dish such as unforgiveness, jealousy, hatred, prejudice, doubt, and/or fear? Are you removing vital ingredients such as love, joy, peace, forgiveness, and/or grace?
I recommend you tap into what God has put in!
What God has put in is exactly what He wants to get out; that his glory be revealed!!
Prayer: Lord we desire to be used for your glory. Help us remember you created us for your glory. Help us remember you have put in everything we need to do your will. Give us strength to tap in to the power we have through you to plant seeds, to speak life, to move mountains, and set others free. We give you all glory and honor, in Jesus name, Amen.
Scripture: You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit together in my mother's womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous, how well I know it.
Psalm 139: 13-14 NLT
How do you escape the thoughts of the mind? The thoughts of past failures?
The thoughts of depression?
The thoughts of worthlessness?
The thoughts that crowd your mind and distract you from your purpose?
I want to say it is easy but I know it to be a daily struggle.
I want to say it is easy but I know it takes strength.
I want to say it is easy but I know you can not do it alone.
Surrender....give all that you have and all that you are to your Creator.
Pray for His strength.
Meditate on His Word.
Meditate on His promises.
The word of God tells us to cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (2 Cor 10:5). Think on what is true, noble, pure, lovely, right (Phil 4:8).
Keep your mind stayed on him and he will give you perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3).
Prayer: Lord God we know you are Omnipotent and nothing is impossible for you. We thank you for the strength and the power to block every negative thought from our mind and speak life from our mouth. We give you honor and glory. In Jesus name, Amen.
Scripture: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Romans 12:2 KJV
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
