Turn to the Lord

Read Isaiah 55:6-11


Photo Credit: Google Images
Have you turned from God and began to partner with Satan? Are you running from the relationship that God is longing to have with you? Are you allowing people to make you think that you have to be perfect to come to Jesus?

Today, is the day to start new and began to seek the Lord with all your being. God is near to his people. Why have we allowed the enemy to speak into our lives and make us think that God has forsaken us? Lies is what the devil has spoken to you.

God’s grace and mercy is immeasurable. He forgives us of our sins and welcomes us with open arms into his presence. We should be grateful that we serve a God that is not like man. People hold your past choices against you and keep bringing them up. God forgives and forgets the sin that you have committed.

Allow the words from God’s own mouth to be planted on your heart. Listen to God and know that his word will never turn back empty. He will fulfill every promise to you. So don’t give up on God but turn to the Lord! He hasn’t given up on you! God loves you so much!!!

Addictions

Read Psalm 107:19-22


Photo Credit: Google Images
Addictions are distractions from the promises of God. When we allow ourselves to be consumed with an addiction we have turned from God and partnered with the enemy.  Think for a moment the things that you are addicted to that have you suppressed from spiritually growing in the Lord. Here are a list of things that Satan uses to bind God’s people: This can be from a physical and spiritual standpoint in one’s life.


  • ·         Murder –Are you murdering people with your tongue?
  • ·         Stealing – Are you robbing God by not spending time with him?
  • ·         Lying – Are you not being truthful with God about who you are in the inside?
  • ·         Sexual Immorality – Are you using sex toys for pleasure?
  • ·         Impurity – Are you watching shows that have sex scenes?
  • ·         Idolatry – Do you worship your car?
  • ·         Jealousy – Do you prey against others when God blesses them openly?
  • ·         Rage – Do you yell at your children in the comfort of your home?
  • ·         Selfish – Are you willing to share your resources to help someone else?
  • ·         Drunkenness - Are you trying to drink your problems away?
Today, we as God’s people have to start being transparent with God and with each other. We are walking around with burdens on our shoulders because we don’t know how to be honest. We are walking in fear of what others may think of us. You ain’t (yes I said ain’t) delivered if you can’t share with others. Many of us claim to walk by faith but we are walking in fear. Hello, somebody!

When you cry out to God in your trouble he is willing to save us from our distress. He will speak a word to you and through you so that you will be healed from the addictions. We all need to be rescued from being suppressed by the enemy in addictions. The enemy takes delight when we sin against God. It’s time to start letting loose things that have been holding us back from the promises of God. Release your cares upon the Lord and watch God birth a new thing in each of us.  

When God does something for you in your life, don’t forget to say “Thank you!” learn to love on God and praise him for just who he is all by himself. God looks past our faults and still blesses us daily. So we owe him a sacrifice of praise.

Continue to show you are grateful for the things that he has done in your life by sharing the good news with others around you. Step outside of your comfort zone in walk in the spirit of confidence and boldness.

Empowering Moment

Psalm 34:18 (NIV) The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.


Photo Credit: Google Images
To my sisters and brothers in Christ Jesus. I speak peace right now over your life. In the name of Jesus! You are broken in the inside and your spirit has been crushed by the enemy. But God has a word for you on today!
Life’s circumstances has you weighed down and you feel like giving up. I speaking to you today to tell you the LORD is close to you.

Every tear that you have cried - God saw it fall from your eye and every sleepless night – God saw you pacing the floor. Every pill you tried to pop to end your life – God blocked it, when you tried to drink you misery away – God kept you, when you tried to party with your friends all night long - God stopped you, when you tried to pick up that gun and point it at your chest – God took your hand.

Hallelujah for the intercession of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
God is close to you and he has already saved you through his son Jesus Christ. Repent of your sins and accept Jesus into your life today. Don’t go another day trying to fight this battle alone. God fights our battles for us but we have to let go and let him do it.

God has already been fighting for you, now surrender unto his will and way for your life. God loves you and don’t let anyone tell you different. He cares for you and every detail of your life. Get on your knees and began to cry out to him saying “Lord I need you now!” He is waiting to hear from today.  Amen.

**I will be posting a YouTube video later with more encouraging words. Amen!

Also feel free to email me if you need prayer calandra_m_thompson@yahoo.com

Know that I'm always praying for you but if you need specific prayer for your situation I'm just an email away. Amen!

Tis’ the season to be jolly! This season can be jolly but also a financial burden to households around the world that enjoy celebrating the holidays. The holiday season has arrived and it’s important to consider a household budget for just this season.

Retailers began offering “Holiday Specials” early fall and almost 57 percent of those celebrating the holidays have already begun shopping!  According to the National Retailers Federation, $630.5 billion will be spent during this Holiday Season.  In other words, retailers are finding ways for us to spend our money sooner.  However, it’s up to each consumer to spend wisely.

Set a Budget

SET A BUDGET on how much you would like to spend as a household for the holiday season. Be smart about the amount that you decide to spend. Once the budget is in place stick to it.

Make a List

Then make a LIST of everything that you will need to spend during this season. Often times, it’s the unforeseen things that get us the most.  When making your list, don’t forget to include things such as:

  • Gifts for every person-family members, teachers, co-workers, neighbors, etc
  • New outfits for office holiday parties
  • Grooming and babysitting services to go with the new outfit
  • Tasty dinners, hor’douvrves, office spreads and maybe even cocktail hours

Lastly, remember that giving does not always require spending money!  So look for unconventional ways to give to those on your list.  Here are a few simple yet impactful ways to give to others:

  • Offer a free night of babysitting for that Mom needs some “Me Time”
  • Spend time volunteering at your local shelters in the name of someone on your list
  • Dry clean coats that you’ve outgrown and gift to someone on your list
  • Create a photo album for someone on your list with pictures from their Facebook and/or Instagram accounts
  • If others rave about your cooking, create a cookbook by handwriting each recipe on decorated note cards
  • Find a “free event” and get an extra ticket for that special someone on your list
  • Bake goodies
The wonderful thing about these gifts is that they can be redeemed immediately or anytime throughout the year. 

To make the most out of your holiday season and eliminate stress, remember to do these things:

  • SET A BUDGET
  • MAKE A LIST
  • DOWNLOAD APPS
  • GIVE FREE GIFTS
We pray that you have a joyous holiday season and that its stress free!

Enjoy your holiday season by living, loving and laughing with family and friends!

Who Can Stand in His Way?

Photo Credit: Google Images

God has spoken so many promises into my life and I know that he has spoken promises into your life as well. Think for a moment the things that God has spoken to you. Do you still believe that these promises will manifest? Has the enemy killed, stole or destroyed your dreams? Read the scripture below…..

Isaiah 14:27 (VOICE) And who can argue with that or stand in God’s way? The Eternal, Commander of heavenly armies, has determined That this is how it should be. And so it will be.

As I read this scripture I thought to myself this scripture is absolutely true. We can stand on this word when the enemy tries to attack our faith, families and finances. Whatever God has spoken to you can’t be argued with, period. Who can argue with God? Nobody!

We serve an omnipotent and sovereign God that answers to no one. He has the final say in our lives. I’m glad to know that we serve a God that stands tall and gives commands. Just think if we served a God of suggestions. “I think you should or maybe you should do this.”

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

This question brings me back to one of my favorite scriptures, Jeremiah 29:11. God announced that he knows that plans he has for each of our lives. He wants to prosper us in all areas of our lives. His plan is to give us a hope and future and so it will be.

The enemy can’t stand in God’s way because the enemy is already defeated. Stop allowing Satan to speak lies into your life. Memorize scriptures such as these and quote these back to the enemy. The enemy can’t stand to hear the word of God and he shall and will flee from you.

Prayer Closet Time

Father, I ask that you speak to each of us today and remind us of the promises that you have spoken into our lives. Lord, I humbly request that you forgive us for not believing in your words. We know that we serve a God that no one can argue with. We thank you for having plans for our lives. We thank you for giving us hope and a future. We love you because you first loved us. In Jesus name we do pray, Amen!

Cross Road

John 19:25-30
Photo Credit: Google Images


On the cross Jesus was still in the blessing business. Understand that in that moment Mary the mother of Jesus and John the disciple whom he loved positioned themselves to receive a blessing from Jesus before he gave up his spirit unto the Father. Hallelujah!
If you are reading this your spirit should be set on fire for the Lord. Why? Because where God has you positioned at this very moment know that he is about to bless you abundantly. You haven’t even been looking for it because life has knocked you down so many times, that you feel that God has forsaken you. I’m here to tell you today that God has not forgotten you. Your pain was simply developing you for your future. Amen!

Jesus provided unity and comfort in that moment between Mary and John by giving them each other. Many of us have been separated from the vision because we have allowed the enemy to consume our thoughts.

Today, we stand saying that enemy has no dominion over our lives. God is getting ready to restore everything that the devil thought he had taken away from you. But you have to be near the cross to receive it. Are you in position to receive the blessing of God?
In the midst of your pain God has been at work but also know that devil has been at work too. God is developing you in the midst of the pain and the devil is using your pain to destroy you. Somebody should shout right there, right where you are!

Jesus was thirsty, he drank and then he bowed his head. As I was writing the Lord was speaking to me. We have to get in the position of being thirsty for Jesus Christ. We have to be willing to submit to his will and way for our lives. When you drink from his cup that he extends to us, trust God that you will never thirst again. Hallelujah!
When you bow before the Lord you are humbling yourself under his mighty hand to receive the blessings that he has in store for you. The position of humbleness releases the power of God in your life.

Today, we will stand at the cross road in position to say Father in heaven we need you like never before. We need you to pour out your Holy Spirit upon us like only you can. Every broken place within us will be restored. We will praise you with all that is within us. In Jesus name, Amen!!!

Our Mission

Read Corinthians 5:10-15
Photo Credit: Google Images

Are you on a mission? We all have a purpose on this earth whether we know it or not. We must come to the realization that we must live out that purpose intentionally.

A friend of mine once asked, “When did you accept Jesus Christ?” My reply, “I was introduced to Christ at an early age but I did not develop an intimate relationship with Christ until 2014.”  A part of me wishes that I would have known my purpose at an early age so that I didn’t have to go through so many trials and tribulations. Then another part of me appreciates the path that was chosen for me because I now stand in awe of how God brought me out and changed my life forever.
Our mission on earth is to glorify God with our lives. How do we do this? We fear God and we must obey his commandments. As I stand in awe of the works that God has done in my life, I desire more of him each day. There are some days were I just don’t feel like worshiping but I’m reminded that God has done too much for me not to worship him. No matter the trials and tribulations that come my way I look to the future when I will be in God’s presence all day. My faith is grounded in Jesus and the promises to come.

Our purpose on earth comes from having a right relationship with Jesus Christ. Our lives can’t have purpose if we don’t know God our creator. Our relationship with God is restored when we accept Jesus Christ into our lives. We believe and confess with our mouths that Jesus Christ is our Savior.
As I’ve come to understand my purpose and I enjoy the relationship that I have with God. I want others around me that don’t know God to experience the same thing. My mission is to persuade and bring others to know Christ. One day soon I will be a full time evangelist and that will be my purpose each day I arise is to go into the community and save the lost.  Today, I encourage you to step out on faith and tell someone about the amazing God that you serve. Someone’s soul is yearning to be freed from bondage. God is wanting to use you as his vessel to reconcile that relationship to him. I long for the moment to see were we as believers stand in unity and thousands are added to the church daily.

For God’s glory I will do anything!! When I stand before the judgement seat I want to hear, “WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT!”

To My Future Husband

Read Genesis 2:21-25

**This blog was written from the heart and how  I interpret these scriptures to apply to my life or any woman that desires to be married. It's preparation season for many of us!

Photo Credit: Google Images


Dear Future Husband:
I was part of you before we met in the physical realm. God formed me you just for you. We are both spiritual beings living this natural experience. I will be your helper because God created me for you. I was made in the image of God just as you have been made in the image of God. God made no mistakes when he formed us both in our mother’s wombs.

I was created to support, love, and uplift, encourage, strengthen and compliment you in all areas of your life. Although I am a woman I still have the power and influence to help you on this journey. We are imperfect people but we are perfect for each other. Were you are weak I will be your strength and were I am weak you will be my strength.  We will be powerful because God will be the head of our union.
As I reflect on the rib that came from man’s side and created woman, I can’t help but tell you that I will be by your side every step of the way. I will walk with you because I know that God is leading you. The unity in our marriage will come from us both being able to support each other physically, emotionally, mentally and most importantly spiritually.

I want a mind blowing experience from our first encounter. Your transparency will wipe away fears that you don’t know exist. Our connection will be confirmation from that prayers that I have prayed. We will share our dreams, fears and aspirations with each other. We will follow the way that God has instructed us how to love each other.
I vow today I will love you even when there are unlovable moments, I will respect you because I know that you are connected to the vine, I will assist you whenever you need me whether it be ministry or personal growth, I will submit to you because I know that you are connected to the source, my spirit will remain gentle and quiet. I will continue to support and encourage you in all that you do. You will always be uplifted in my prayers!

Scripture for the Week: Hospitality

Hebrews 13:2 Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by doing some have unwittingly entertained angels. (NKJV)
Photo Credit: Google Images

Surprisingly, many of us are suffering from anthropophobia! What does that mean? It means that we fear people. Many of us are only comfortable with speaking to close family, friends, coworkers and possibly church members.  Other than that, we never say hello to a stranger, we dare not make eye contact, and we don’t offer assistance when we see someone in need, etc. We walk with our heads held high to the sky and feel that in some way we have arrived. We think way too highly of ourselves.

Don’t be shocked! But we aren’t doing the will of our Father in Heaven.  The Lord has commanded for us to be hospitable to strangers. His word tells us in Hebrews 13:2 that we could be entertaining angels. If we look at everyone that we come in contact with this way, we will take self out of the equation and focus on what is pleasing in God’s sight.

We were created to serve God and serve his people. When we are hospitable we honor God and bring glory to his name. If you see someone that is in need whether they be hungry, thirsty, need a word of encouragement, help with a difficult task, etc. serve them knowing that you are honoring God and could be entertaining an angel. A simple “HELLO! How are you?” can go along way with someone. A smile to a total stranger can uplift their spirit and it shows the light that Jesus Christ has placed in each of his believers. Today, I ask that we promote hospitality so that our Father in heaven may be glorified and his message be spread throughout this world.

~Be Blessed!

That’s My Dream

Hi everybody!!! This blog will allow you into my personal space that has been very dear to my heart because it has been orchestrated by God every step of the way. I pray my testimony encourages, inspires and uplifts single men and women that are patiently waiting on God’s best for their lives. God has been so good to me that I have unspeakable joy! Welcome to my dream!

Chasing after God
Alright Now! When we are single we often times wonder how long will we have to wait for the perfect mate. Well my story was I dated before and things never worked out right because that wasn’t the plan that God had for me. So God spoke to me and told me to “Trust him, Trust him” When God spoke to me I knew exactly what he meant, he wanted me to trust him with all areas of my life. So I stepped out on faith and surrendered to God’s will and way. Did I go looking for love? Yes, I did!

I went looking for the love of Jesus Christ. I fell in love with Jesus and discovered that he was already in love with me. I was on fire for the Lord and I was eager to seek his will for my life. I wasn’t perfect during this season but I remained faithful to the Lord. God started to pull back layers and layers of wounds that had never been healed. Self-improvement was in full effect because God was at work in my life. He was pruning, purging and preparing me for my future.


Single Me, Enjoying Life

God was the head of my life and I was seeking him daily for counsel because I know he cared for me. Chasing after God in that season was amazing! I was growing deeper in God’s word and becoming spiritually mature. I became a better woman of God, mother, daughter, sister, and a friend because God was working in my life. My life as a single woman was a ministry to many others around me.

Webinar Confirmation
Just a little background info! Recently I attended a webinar that talked about the “5 Stages of a Relationship Done God’s Way” and this was confirmation that God was still in full control of my destiny. Before I start the next part of my dream, I wanted to let you know that when I mention the name CJ that is my God-fearing man that God has blessed with me. Okay!!! Amen!

Alright, so CJ and I listened to this webinar together. Here are the 5 Stages of A relationship Done God’s Way:

1.       Friendship Stage

Yes!!! CJ and I met at Christian Chapel Temple of Faith (church). He was a ministry leader of Game Changers which is a ministry for young adults between the ages of 18 through 26. I was the ministry leader of the Singles Ministry. The Singles Ministry had Wednesday night bible study at a local Starbucks in the Dallas area, so a group of us would get together and study God’s word. Our focus was growing in the Lord not dating. CJ and I were friends in the body of Christ.


Just Friends

2.       Interest Stage

Interesting! This stage was where I know that God took the scales off my eyes. Although, I was interested in CJ, I still was seeking God for direction. Ladies, Ladies, Ladies! He didn’t know that I liked him and God didn’t allow me to display my emotions. The interest stage was just observing from a distance.


Wednesday Night Bible Study


3.       Pursuing Stage

Should I pursue or not pursue? Of course I should pursue him! I pursued CJ in prayer. I didn’t approach him but I approached the throne of grace asking God to confirm that this was the man that he had for me and that he was my husband. CJ pursued me in the physical. It’s not our place as women to pursue men in the physical realm, period.

One night after Wednesday night bible study we planned that Friday to go dancing as a group. When I arrived at the location it ended up only being CJ and I. I thought this was perfect and I knew that God had his hand on this moment. It was a great night filled with conversation, laughter and dancing.

This is the text that he sent me the next day:


Pursue Text


Epic Night
  
We talked on the phone and it was established that we had mutual interest in each other. I was so excited after we hung up and started to thank God for everything that was happening in that very moment.  Then of course I called to share with others about the goodness of the Lord and what he had done for me.

4.       Courting Stage

Whew!! This stage has been awesome! Why? Because for the first time in my life I am courting with the  purpose of one day being married to this man. I knew before we had hung out one on one that he was my husband. God had spoken to me at a live gospel recording “It’s him, It’s him” This stage for us has been truly a blessing. We are keeping Christ first in our lives! We know that we serve a jealous God. We always give honor and glory to God for bringing us together! All the glory belongs to God!


9/25/15 Birthday Dinner
5.       Engaged Stage

Well! This story is unavailable at the moment. Stay tuned!!!

Encouragement Corner

Let God write your love story! Chase after God and seek him first in all that you do. He will direct your path and give you the desires of your heart according to his will and way for your life. This has been a mind blowing experience for me. Everything that I dreamed about and more as come to pass. Amen! Praise God!

Glory in Your Suffering

Romans 5:3-5 (NKJV)

And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Photo Credit: Google Images

Today’s blog will be slightly different than usual. I have found that many times we read scriptures but we don’t truly understand the meaning of words. I’m going to take some key words from the scriptures, explain the meaning and then give a message of hope.
The 1st word that stands out to me is tribulations. What does tribulation mean? According to the dictionary it means a cause of great trouble or suffering.

The 2nd word that stands out to me is perseverance. What does perseverance mean? According to the dictionary it means the quality that allows someone to continue trying to do something even though it is difficult.

The 3rd word that stands out to me is character. What does character mean? According to the dictionary it means the way someone thinks, feels, and behaves: someone’s personality.

The 4th word that stands out to me is hope. What does hope mean? According to the dictionary it means to want something to happen or be true and think that it could happen or be true.

God is telling us that there is glory in our troubles or suffering that we experience. Our troubles or suffering causes us to continue surrendering God’s will and way for our lives. Although it’s difficult at times God needs us to go through the process so that he can develop our individual personalities to be more Christ-like. We have hope to know that trouble doesn’t last always because God has poured his love into our hearts and he has given us the Holy Spirit to comfort, lead, guide and protect us in difficult times. When we put our trust in the Lord we will never be disappointed because God loves us so much. He sent his only begotten son, who was sinless to save us by dying on the cross for our sins against God. God loves us so much that even though he knew we would fail him daily, he still wanted to be reconciled to his people. He offered us the most precious gift that we could ever receive and that was Jesus Christ. He also gave us the gift of eternal life. We know that what we face in front of us is only temporary. Nobody told us that the road would be easy but God has never left or forsaken us. So keep trusting in him, keep praying and stay encouraged my sisters and brothers in Christ. Know there is glory in your suffering!

~Be Blessed

Write Your Own History

Read Genesis 32:21-32

Photo Credit: Google Images
 
Reading Jacobs story makes me reflect on my story and other people’s stories that I’ve heard along the way. How many of us have wrestled with God? At some point we have all wrestled with God. If we haven’t or didn’t realize it we are probably wrestling with God right now.

God is requiring more from us but we continue to wrestle with the plan that he has for our lives. We want microwave results. We want it to be our will and our way. God says go through the struggle and then when you surrender to my will and way, I will bless you. Amen!

In that moment Jacob became a new person and old the old Jacob passed away. (1 Corinthians 5:17) He was now to be called Israel. Jacob faced God and stopped running from correction.
He wrestled with God and the oppression that the enemy had on him was lifted in that moment.

To mature in Jesus Christ, means that we will face trials and tribulations but the struggle is there to help us grown stronger in the Lord.

This scripture was placed in my spirit as I wrote this blog: Psalm 30:5 weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. (KJV)
Jacobs’s story is now history and he made it through. What will history say about you? Will you surrender today and yes to God’s will and way?

~Be Blessed!

Living By Faith

Read 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Photo Credit: Google Images

Hallelujah! Lord fill us up until our cups over flow. Lord we need all of you right now!
Today, I declare and decree that we will not give up. We will not focus on the right now but we will keep our eyes on the cross. We will focus on what God has planned for our lives. We will say yes to his will and way.

God is renewing our spirits every day. So we must request constantly that God stir up the fruits of the spirit within us. According to God’s will and way we desire to produce what God has placed in each of us.
Don’t focus on what you see in front of you – the trials, tribulations, negative circumstances  but know that trouble don’t last always. Stay focused on the promises of God. We can’t see our Father but we can feel his presence and we can see the works of his hands all around us.

This world will pass away but the Lord will be with us always.
Today, I encourage each of us to live by faith and not by sight. Draw closer to Abba, Father and let him direct your path. Listen to that soft spoken voice and trust in his plan. Amen and Amen!

~Be Blessed!

My Spiritual Dream

Today is Friday and I'm feeling upbeat in my spirit after my praise and worship this morning with Jehovah. I wanted to share my spiritual dream with others with hope that it will inspire you to continue on this Christian journey.

Photo Credit: Google Images

What is my spiritual dream?

My spiritual dream is to remain connected to God by continuing to say yes to his will and way. I want to continue to allow him to use me like never before. Reveal and confirm to me what he would have me to do for his glory. I would like to teach the gospel to my family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, strangers, or just anyone that will hear the good news. I want my life to be a ministry for all to see the God in me. It’s not about me but all about Jesus Christ. After, my singleness season is over I want a united ministry with my husband. I want him to lead and I follow. Our marriage will be a ministry, just as my single life is a ministry. I’m taking one day at a time and letting God have his way.

I originally wrote this back in late July but some things have changed since then. So all glory belongs to God! I will share later about the changes. God is still writing my story....

~Be Blessed

Don’t Stop Praying

Ephesians 6:18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. (NIV)

Photo Credit: Google Images

Today we will change the way we pray to our Father in heaven. We will no longer come to him on some occasions but on all occasions will we pray. Often times when things are going well in our lives we forget to just say “Thank you Lord” or we forget to give him that intimate time to just go before the throne with thanksgiving and praise. When we get down in the pit we find ourselves reaching out to God because everyone else has left us there to suffer through the process alone.

Just think for a moment about the purpose of the Holy Spirit which is to lead, guide, direct, comfort and intercede on our behalf’s. So often times when we are in confused places we find ourselves speechless with no words to say. If we pray in the Spirit the Holy Spirit will intercede on our behalf to our Father in heaven.

Don’t get comfortable in the season that God has you in at this very moment. Pray about all things, no matter how small it may be. God cares about the smallest details of our lives. Sometimes you have to press your way through to pray. Sometimes we as humans just don’t feel like praying or we get to busy. Sometimes we can feel that we have sinned against God that he will not hear our prayers. This is nothing but the trick of the enemy.
God loves us so much that he sent his only begotten son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our sins. The devil has been defeated at his many schemes. God has freed us from the bondage of sin through his sons sacrifice on the cross.

Pray for all people, whether you know them or even the situation that they are going through. Keep praying and don’t stop. Prayer is the way we communicate with God and we need to be able to speak to him and make our request known so that he may speak to us. How can he speak, if we don’t talk? We all need a word from the Lord!

Today, I declare and decree that what you have been praying for will be answered in Jesus name! Lord, I ask that you send your rain to water the seeds that have been planted in prayer. Lord, we need a harvest in this season!
~Be Blessed
