Your Love Guard Me Through The Night...

 
TONIGHT I Pray that the spirit of favor be opened on you everywhere you go in Jesus’ name! I declare “right now” to be a beginning of great things in your life!  Whatever your situation- the Lord will uphold and raise you! Jesus is a Restorer…Nothing is impossible for God. He can even use your enemies to promote you.  He is above all things. He is above your problems, your pain and all of the swirling events in this ever changing world.  I pray that as you look to Jesus you will rise above your circumstances and rest in Him.  I pray that through His light and its warmth you find His peace that passes all understanding. I pray that you realize that you can have as much of His peace as you desire.  You only need to call His name.  Just say Jesus help me and He will.  He is the life line that pulls us ever closer to Him if we allow Him.  I pray that all of you stay open to HIS love and peace.  In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen…  I Love you all … God bless you!!!! ♥♥♥

The Reality of Heaven
by Charles R. Swindoll

Revelation 21:1-6

The same Bible that develops the subject of hell also reveals the truth about heaven. What is heaven like? Playing harps all day? Lounging around on Cloud Nine? Living in enormous mansions along solid gold streets? Does it mean we'll all have long white robes with matching sandals, glowing halos, and big flapping wings? Hardly!

Heaven is an actual place. A prepared place, designed for God's redeemed people, those who have accepted God's free gift of His Son.

"Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also." (John 14:1-3)

According to this and other New Testament verses, heaven will be a place of beauty, peace, constant health, and happiness, filled with people from all the earthly ages who have one thing in common: faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, who took away the sin of the world.

In heaven we'll have a face-to-face, exclusive relationship with our Savior, gloriously enjoyed without interruption or heartache or grief or sin or the threat of death.  God promised that He would make all things new in heaven.

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband . . .Then He said to me, "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. (Revelation 21:1-2, 6)

Heaven will be the destiny of those who take God at His Word, believing in His Son, Jesus Christ, and coming, by faith, to salvation . . . without cost.

Can something this good really be free? Even free of works? You decide after reading these Scripture verses.

For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one may boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus. (Romans 3:24)

Yes, salvation comes to us "free and clear" of any hidden charges or religious deeds or human effort. We come to God through Christ . . . lost, sinful, without hope, and deserving of hell. In grace, He sees us in Christ and in grace loves us, forgives us, accepts us into His family, and promises us an eternal home with Him in heaven, the ultimate destination of all His people.

Salvation is the single most important issue in all of life. Yet, if we are not careful, we'll put it off until later; we'll even put it completely out of our minds. Salvation is an urgent matter and is yours for the taking.

I ask you, will you do so today?

Your Love Guard Me Through The Night...


TONIGHT I Pray that the Lord to help you to put off anger, loss of temper and bitterness and put on being tenderhearted and sensitive! You may have some obstacles in your path, but the good news is, the Power that is for you is greater than any power that is against you. I declare power to violently resist the enemy! The Holy Spirit can conquer all of the storms in your life!!! Take His hand and as you walk with Him be as the birds that fly into the WIND as it pushes against them, it moves them higher into the heavens. That even in the worst storms the Lord will hold you in His arms and allow you to rest in Him.  In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen…  I Love You All!!!    God bless you!!!

Word of the Day... April 22, 2014....


IngratitudeAlthough they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.—Romans 1:21
A man who was nailing down a loose shingle on a roof lost his footing and began to slip. Working three stories above ground, he was terrified at the thought of falling to his death. He started shouting, "God, help me! I'm falling! Do something!" Just as he came to the edge of the roof, his belt loop caught on a nail and stopped him long enough to grab hold again.
He shouted, "It's okay, God! I got caught on a nail."

That is how we can be. We cry out to God. He answers our prayers. Then we say, "It's okay, God! Everything seemed to work out."

But do we ever stop and think that God might have worked through certain circumstances to come to our rescue? My point is, we need to put as much zeal in thanking God for what He has done as we put into pleading with God when we are in need.

I heard about a hospital chaplain who kept a record of some two thousand patients whom he had visited, all who seemed to be in a dying condition and showed signs of repentance. Among those restored to health, he felt that only two showed a marked change in their spiritual lives after their recovery. In other words, when these people thought they would die, they repented. But when they recovered, they forgot about God.

What would you think of a person who always wanted things from you but never offered a word of thanks in return? We can be that way with God, can't we? Let's remember to thank Him.
When I read this I couldn’t help but think that I never want to be ungrateful for all that the Lord has done for me.  I want to come to Him daily with a thankful heart.  I will never forget the day that the Lord helped me through lung cancer and I want that feeling to stay fresh inside my heart and soul forever!!!  

I will never forget that day when I came home from the hospital and opened my Bible and read those words that He gave me that afternoon:
When Jesus heard that, He said, “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”  John 11:4

It was in that minute that I knew that the cancer would never return and that the Lord had spared my life!!!  I can remember crying out to Him and thanking Him over and over.  God is good all the time is not just a cliché it is the truth that we can stand on.  I believe that God answers every single one of our prayers and thankfully He doesn’t give us what we want all the time.  He gives us what we need.  What is best for us!!!  I hope that you have a Simply Heavenly day!!!

Your Love Guard Me Through The Night...

Tonight I Pray that you get into the habit of putting on the full armor of God every single day!  Don’t allow anything to come between you and Jesus.  I pray that you realize that the closer we get to the end the more trials Satan will throw in our path.  It will be when we have HIS full armor on that the Holy Spirit will be able to flow through us and carry us through the trials to the place He wants us to be.  Then we will have the opportunity to seek out the Lord so that we can please Him above everything else in our life. I pray that we walk IN the Lord and not try to walk in both this world and with Jesus for when you allow other people’s expectations to drive you, your energy is scattered to the wind draining you of everything.   When we pretend to be something we are not, we cannot please God.  I pray that we all turn our eyes to Jesus and make Him the central focus of our lives, for it is utterly impossible to be inauthentic while we are in the Presence of the Lord.  He has designed us to need Him every moment and when we realize this He will show us that He can meet every single one of our needs.  Hold tightly to His hands and allow Him to lead you through the maze  of darkness and into the warm light of His eternal Love!!! In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen…  I Love You All!!!  God Bless You!!!!

Word of the Day... April 21,2014...

Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall. Proverbs 16:18


What brought Adam and Eve down? We assume it was the attractiveness of the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. But it wasn't the fruit; it was what the fruit promised.


Satan told them, "God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil" (Genesis 3:5). In other words, "Eve, listen. You will be a goddess. Adam, you will be a god. Come on, go for it." And they did. The devil had appealed to their pride.


That is one of the devil's subtle ways to strike: he attacks us through pride. Popularity can be more deadly than persecution. Christians start believing their own press and become inflated with pride.


First the devil comes to us and says, You are worthless. You are a piece of garbage. God would never use someone like you.


We reply, "Well, I don't know. The Bible says that if I will confess my sin, God is faithful and just to forgive me my sins and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. And the Bible also says that God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise. So I think God will use me."


Then the devil changes his whole mode of attack. Instead of trying to tear us down, he whispers in our ear, You are the awesome man of God (or the wonderful woman of virtue)! Everything you say is wonderful. You are so great! And we soak it up.



I had to share my devotional with you today from Greg Laurie. I think what he is talking about here has happened to every single one of us.  We just have to remember to stay in the Word for that is where we get our strength.  God is not the author of confusion. It is so on point that I believe that all of you would enjoy reading it.  I hope you all have a Simply Heavenly day!!!  God bless you!!!  Jesus Loves you!!! ♥♥♥

Your Love Guard Me Through The Night...

Tonight I pray that you come to the Lord with a happy heart and a teachable spirit, because a happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing. I pray that the Lord reveals to you that a closer walk with Him is a life where you will be continually renewed through the power and might of His Spirit.  I pray that as we seek the Lord with an open mind we will see that our journey with Jesus involves being transformed by the renewing of our mind on a daily basis through prayer and by being in Your Word. I pray that you are aware that He keeps a steady eye on us and that He understands us perfectly and still loves us!!!!   He embraces us with HIS Everlasting Love!!!  I know the things He has planned for you.  Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  I pray that you stand on that faith and give yourself fully to the Lord and this adventure of increasing attentiveness to His Presence in our lives.  In Jesus Name I Pray, Amen and Amen!!!! I Love You All!!!  God Bless You!!! ♥♥
