As we get closer to the new year, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by what could have and should have happened this year. I want to offer a moment of clarity. Stop running from the should of, could of, and would of and focus on what is. You are here now and still, have the opportunity to be celebrated in 2018. The potential that was ignited in you from January could still reign true in December. Don’t give up, you can do it! Check out the meditation video and let me know what you think. Selah.
It Monday ladies and gentlemen so you know what that means. It’s time to close the door on the world and tune into the unfailing love and peace of God.
For today’s meditation, I want you to think about what you want out of this new year. I know that December has just begun, but its never too early to plan a future success. One of the premier steps in progress is in knowing what you want out of your tomorrow.
Take a moment and write down want out of 2019. Share below if you’d like. Selah
Psalms 91 Protection Prayer
I (we) pray for all members of congress and
of the armed forces of our nation, all of our intercessors, teachers,
pastors, friends, enemies, neighbors, doctors, dentists, all people of
Israel, everyone we go to church with, and all of Your workers.
Heavenly Father, I (we) ask You to let us dwell in the secret place of the
most High and abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I (we) ask You
to let us say that You are our Lord, our refuge, our fortress and our God
in whom we can trust. I (we) ask You to deliver us from the snare of the
fowler, and from the deadly pestilence. I (we) ask You to cover each of
us with Your feathers and let us walk under Your wings to take refuge. I
(we) ask You to let Your faithfulness and truth be our shield and armor. I
(we) ask You to let us not be afraid of the terror by night; nor for the
arrow that flieth by day; nor for the deadly pestilence that walketh in
darkness nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. I (we) ask You
to cause a thousand to fall at our side, and ten thousand at our right hand
and not to let any come near us. I (we) ask You to give Your angels
charge over us to keep us in all Your ways and let Your angel’s hands lift
us up, so we do not even dash our foot against a stone or be hurt in any
way. I (we) ask You to let us tread upon the lion and serpent and to let us
trample the young lion and the serpent under our feet. I (we) ask You
Heavenly Father, to answer us when we call upon You, be with us in
trouble, deliver us, honor us and satisfy us with a long life and show us
Your salvation. Heavenly Father, I (we) thank You that these things are
written in Psalms 91, that we can dwell in the secret place of the most
High, and I (we) thank You that we can abide under the shadow of our
Almighty God. I (we) thank You that we can say You are our Lord, our
refuge, our fortress and our God, whom we can trust. I (we) thank You
for delivering us from the snare of the fowler, and from the deadly
pestilence. I (we) thank You for covering each of us with Your feathers. I
(we) thank You that we can walk under Your wings and take refuge. I
(we) thank You that Your faithfulness and truth is our shield and armor. I
(we) thank You that we are not afraid for the terror by night nor for the
arrow that flieth by day; nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness;
nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. I (we) thank You that a
thousand shall fall at our side, and ten thousand at our right hand and
none will come near us. I (we) thank You for giving Your angels charge
over us to keep us in all ways and that Your angel’s hands will lift us up
so we do not dash our foot against a stone. I (we) thank You that we can
tread upon the lion and serpent and trample the young lion and the
dragon under our feet. I (we) thank You that when we call upon You,
You will answer us, and be with us in trouble. Deliver us, honor us,
satisfy us with a long life and show us Your salvation. Heavenly Father, I
am (we are) thankful that our Lord Christ Jesus spoiled all principalities
and powers and made a show of them openly and triumphed over them in
Himself. I (we) claim all that victory for our lives. I (we) reject all the
insinuations, accusations, and temptations of satan. I (we) affirm that the
Word of God is true and we choose to live in obedience to You Lord
Jesus and in fellowship with You. Open our eyes and show us the areas
of our lives that do not please You. Work in us to cleanse us from all
ground that would give satan a foothold against us. We do in every way
stand in all that it means to be your adopted child and we welcome all the
ministry of Your Holy Spirit. Heavenly Father, I (we) pray that now and
through our lives, You would strengthen and enlighten us, show us the
way satan and his demonic spirits are trying to hinder, tempt, lie, and
distort the truth in our lives. Enable us to be the kind of person that will
please you. Enable us to be aggressive in prayer and faith. Enable us to
be aggressive mentally, to think about and practice Your word, and to
give You, Your rightful place in our lives. Heavenly Father, I (we) place
all of my (our) cares, all of my (our) anxieties, all of my (our) worries
and all of my (our) concerns once and for all on You, because I (we)
know that You love me (us) and watch over me (us) according to 1 Peter
5:7. Heavenly Father, I (we) pray for the peace of Jerusalem and may all
those prosper who love You. Psalms 122:6. Heavenly Father, I (we)
pray that You will establish Jerusalem and make her a praise in the earth.
Isaiah 62:7. To God be the Glory. Amen!
Have you ever been in a situation that you know is wrong and you go along just to get along? Or am I the only one?????
In this season we are taking hold of our independence, but this independence, honesty and need to be forthright must start with ourselves.
If someone is gossiping, tell them to be quiet, or make it clear that you are not comfortable with them gossiping around you.
If you are tired of having just enough money at the end of the month, make time to sit down and create a budget.
If you have not been kind to someone, walk up to the person and apologize.
This time of acceptance is not just for everyone around you in this world, it’s for you. You must stand up for what is true in you.
You never know, the courage you express on your job, at school, on in your relationship may inspire people around you to stand in their truth as well… and where there is truth, there is freedom.
Matt 18: 35: So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
Refusing to forgive is a sin. If we receive forgiveness from God, we must give it to others who hurt us. We cannot hold grudges or seek revenge. We are to trust God for justice and forgive the person who offended us.
That does not mean we must forget the offense, however, usually, that’s beyond our power.
An unforgiving, vengeful, or bitter spirit will not only affect you and those around you, but it will also separate you from the blessing of God. Therefore you must forgive others no matter what the offense.
Thank you Pastor Pat Buckley for putting this transformative information online.
To get a prayer to help with forgiveness come back next week!
Every person on this planet called earth has the ability to win. God did not say that He made special people that will achieve their dream while others squander their life and struggle. 3 John 2:2″ Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” So you have to decide to be who God made you to be!
You can have a dream, make a plan, then conquer the goal… but first you have to decide that you are a winner. Television, relationships, and negative impressions cannot be your deterrent in your path of success. You have to make a daily decision and stand on the understanding that you were made to win, succeed and be useful in this world.
Let today be the last day that you let your self down. Chose to prosper, look yourself in the mirror and say ” Success… I was made for this!”
There is power in silence.
Life is all about balance, we have to learn how to be still and have a moment of peace and quiet. From silence, you can learn how to block off negative thoughts, stress concerning day to day issues, and lists that we have going on in our heads. Check out this video concerning keeping priority straight in your life. When we learn to consider God in everything we do, then we unlock unparalleled peace and guidance for our day. Enjoy!
Do you know where your power lives?
In love… if we learn to love one another and love ourselves, we can then become people who love our jobs, our homes, and our community. This meditation Monday tune into love. When something goes wrong in your day, ask yourself ” how can I help this situation with love?” Check out this new song from Tori Kelly, its a beautiful expression of love and worship. Selah
We have all had times where inside the Holy Spirit said “NO… Speak UP… Don’t do that …. Don’t go there” but do we listen to that voice? This year I have learned to value the God in me. What do I mean by that? It means I am not just going to go along with things anymore just to make the people around me more comfortable. It means I will no longer hold my tongue when everything in me says “ Speak UP.” These things may sound easy for you to do, but for me, it has been a process. In the name of “protecting others feelings,” I dimmed the light God game me to shine. So now I honor the voice God gave me by using it. Selah. #SLiM
