01-17-18 Loved One’s Devotion A TREMENDOUS VICTORY…

My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: This is what the devil’s news media has as their headline! “We have battled hard against prayer and we have won! There is now less interest in the power of prayer then there has ever been.”

The devil: “…comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come so they can have life. I want them to have it in the FULLEST POSSIBLE WAY.” (John 10:10)

The devil has been successful in stealing our confidence in prayer, killing our faith about prayer’s being answered and destroying our ability to communicate with our Heavenly Father. How do I know this? Sunday, I sent out a blog about with the title WHAT SHOULD GOD’S PEOPLE DO…” along with an image of a man prayingit was about the necessity of our prayers. This received the least amount of views of any devotion I have written in the past six years!

“The fool says in his heart, THERE IS NO GOD.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds…”(Psa. 14:1)

Our lack of an INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD will lead to the “there is no God” syndrome, that’s why God says: Call to Me and I WILL ANSWER YOU, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” (Jer. 33:3)

“If my people…will humble themselves AND PRAY and seek my face…then I WILL HEAR from heaven…” (2 Chron. 7:14)

“…WHEN YOU PRAY, go into your room and shut the door…your Father…WILL REWARD YOU.”(Matt. 6:6)

The Lord reminds us: “…you will call, and THE LORD WILL ANSWER; you will cry for help, and he will sayHERE AM I…” (Isa. 58:9)

01-16-18 Loved One’s Devotion HOW MAJESTIC IS YOUR NAME…

My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day:  LORD, our 1Lord, HOW MAJESTIC IS YOUR NAME in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens.” (Psa. 8:1)  1Eˈlōhim Adoneynu; the root signifies to direct, rule, judge, support. So, Adonais the Director, Ruler, Judge, and Supporter of men. It is well combined with Eˈlōhim; this showing what God is in himself; that, which God is to man; and here very correctly refers to our Lord Jesus.

Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes(Psa. 8:2)

We have seen how our Lord applied this passage to the Jewish children, who, seeing his miracles, cried out in the temple…“Hosanna to the Son of David!” (Mat 21:16).

And we have seen how the enemy – the chief priests and the scribes – were offended because of this crying out; and as this Psalm is speaking of Jesus Christ, it is most likely that in this act of the Jewish children this prophecy had its MAIN FULFILLMENT; and was left to the Jews as a witness and a sign of the Messiah, which they should have recognized when Jesus spoke about it.

When I look at your heavens, the creation of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have set in place- what is a mortal that you remember him or THE SON OF MAN THAT YOU TAKE CARE OF HIM?” (Psa. 8:3, 4)  

What a view this gives to the majesty of God!

“O LORD our Lord, HOW EXCELLENT IS YOUR NAME in all the earth!” (Psa. 8:9)

LORD, OUR LORD YOUR NAME IS EXCELLENT IN ALL THE EARTH!

01-15-18 Loved One’s Devotion GOD ANSWERS PRAYER…

My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: Ezra came up from Babylon to ask the King for help. “…He was a teacher well versed in the Law of Moses, which the LORD…had given. The king had granted him everything he asked, FOR THE HAND OF THE LORD HIS GOD WAS ON HIM. (Ezra 7:6)

Ezra had great favour with King Artaxerxes and petitioned him to allow the Jews to go to Jerusalem (with funds and animals for sacrifice from the King) to DEDICATE THE TEMPLE TO GOD. Then Ezra said: There, I PROCLAIMED A FAST, so that we might HUMBLE OURSELVES BEFORE OUR GOD and ask him for a safe journey for us and our children, with all our possessionsTHE GRACIOUS HAND OF OUR GOD IS ON EVERYONE WHO LOOKS TO HIMSo, we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and HE ANSWERED OUR PRAYER.” (Ezra 8:21-23)

As Ezra finished his work for the Lord he needed to make sure his people were right with God, so he “preached” to them about what they needed to do and this was the result: “The whole assembly responded with a loud voice: “You are right! WE MUST DO AS YOU SAY.”(Ezra 10:12)

Prayer along with fasting is such a powerful “weapon” against the enemy of our soul! It is also a great way to rededicate our lives to our Abba Father.

“Even now,” declares the LORD, “RETURN TO ME with ALL your heart, with FASTING and WEEPING and MOURNINGLet your hearts be broken…” (Joel 2:12-13)

Why should OUR HEARTS BE BROKEN? Because we do not take fasting seriously! Fasting is the time for us to be FULLY DEDICATED TO GODwith OUR ALL. We lay everything down before Him and open ourselves to Him, so He may use us AS HE WILLS!

THE GRACIOUS HAND OF OUR GOD IS ON EVERYONE WHO SINCERELY LOOKS TO HIM!

01-14-18 Loved One’s Devotion WHAT SHOULD GOD’S PEOPLE DO…

My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: When something happens that stirs us up, we often find ourselves debating or arguing about it. The temptation is to “publish” our complaints which in my opinion demonstrates our lack of trust in our Heavenly Father, who says:

“If my people, who are called by my name, will HUMBLE THEMSELVES and PRAY and SEEK MY FACE…then I WILL HEAR from heaven, and…WILL HEAL their land.”(2 Chron. 7:14)

So, who are God’s people?

“…remember that formerly you who are Gentiles…WERE SEPARATE FROM CHRIST, excluded from citizenship in…without hope and without God in the world…now in Christ Jesus YOU WHO ONCE WERE FAR AWAY HAVE BEEN BROUGHT NEAR BY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST. For he…has made THE TWO GROUPS ONE…in one body to reconcile both of them to God THROUGH THE CROSS (Eph. 2:11-16)

Only God can change a person’s heart, and this will happen through prayer, because…

“…The EFFECTUAL FERVENT PRAYER of a righteous man 1AVAILS MUCH.” (Jam. 5:16) 1ischuō: to have power and strength to overcome. The heartfelt, continuous prayer makes tremendous power availableNOT the heartfelt continuous debating or arguing!

HELP US LORD TO HUMBLE OURSELVES AND SEEK YOUR FACE…

Notice: [We must understand that the bible says:] “…If my people, who are called by my name, will HUMBLE THEMSELVES and PRAY and SEEK MY FACE. !!!That’s for you: Stephanie, Ethan, Camden, Olivia, Aidan, Landon, Kinsley, Annika and Kaleigh
