My Defender

Deuteronomy 20 4

Verse of the Day:  Deuteronomy 20:4

For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.

Those that love and trust in the Lord may call upon Him in their time of need. Whatever battle you are facing be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual God is with you and He will fight for you. From the smallest battle to the biggest God will defend you and protect you. This is Christian warfare and the key to victory is to stay in God’s will and to fight on your knees in prayer. You have no reason to fear, trust in the Lord with all your heart and He will give you the victory.

My Restorer

Psalm 30 11

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 30:11

You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy.

For whatever reason, be it sin, mourning, sickness or some other kind trouble, if you are in a season of darkness you need to turn to God. He is the restorer of light and goodness. He will restore you and turn your sorrow into joy, your brokenness into beauty, your wailing into dancing. Seek the Lord by prayer and supplication having faith that God is able to change your circumstances and in His time, He will deliver you from your troubles. Until He does, keep praising Him because when the time does come, He can change things in the blink of an eye restoring your spirit, your mind and your heart.

 

God Hears You

Psalm 86 7

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 86:7

When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me.

In this world we will have troubles. They can be troubles we bring on ourselves by our own actions or they can be brought on from other people. Sometimes they’re from the devil who tempts us and schemes against us. It can be an illness or hardship beyond our control. They can be troubles that last for a day, for a while or for a season. The important thing to know is that when you have a relationship with God you can always call on Him and know that He hears you and answers you. God hears your every prayer and when you learn to trust in Him, He will give you peace. Even when you can’t find the right words to pray God hears your heart.

The Right Direction

Isaiah 30 21

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 30:21

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

If you are at a crossroad in your life or have an important decision to make and you’re not sure which path to take listen closely to the Holy Spirit, who will guide you onto the right path.  Humbly and earnestly seek guidance through prayer, fasting and studying the Word of God. The Holy Spirit also helps you in your day to day life keeping you on the right path just like the shepherd guides his sheep. The Word of God and the Holy Spirit are always there to direct you in the way you should go.

Give the Impossible to God

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 84:12

Lord Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.

As women of God, we do our best to take care of our families to the best of our ability and we do as much as humanly possible. There are some things that are out of our control and for us, they are impossible. Those are the things we need to give to God. Through prayer, supplication and faith put your trust in the Lord Almighty who deals in making the impossible, possible. Do the possible and trust God for the impossible.

National Day of Prayer

National Day of Prayer 2

 

Let’s join together today to pray for our country. Our country and our people need God’s healing power more than ever. Let us unite and pray for our government leaders, military, and first responders. Pray for the doctors, nurses, researchers and all others who tirelessly work to save us from the Covid-19 pandemic. Pray for our businesses, schools and churches who have also been adversely affected. Pray for God’s mercy and grace, direction and wisdom. Most importantly, pray for our people to know how much God loves them.

Bearing Fruit

John 15 8 2

Verse of the Day:  John 15:8

This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

Bearing much fruit comes with spiritual maturity and is a result of being obedient to the Word of God. When you devote yourself to God and His will the fruit of the Spirit is evident in your life and God is glorified. You are a righteous tree planted to bear the fruit of righteousness by which all men will know you are disciples of Christ. But, when you aren’t connected to the life giving vine, you stop bearing fruit. Stay connected to God through prayer, His Word and by serving Him with a surrendered heart.

Joyful – Patient – Faithful

Romans 12 12

Verse of the Day:  Romans 12:12

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

The Christian life is not always easy. Jesus said we will have troubles but we can have peace because He overcame the world (John 16:33). We can be joyful in the hope we have in Jesus Christ because we have salvation and the hope of being with the Lord forever in heaven. We can be patient during troubled times because we know our faith is being made stronger while we rely fully on God for healing, comfort, provisions and peace. Be faithful in your prayer life regardless of what is happening in the world and especially in times of tribulation. Don’t be discouraged by what is happening around you instead take every concern, every fear and every doubt straight to the throne of God.

I’m Not Lucky, I’m Blessed

Numbers 6 24-26

Verse of the Day:  Numbers 6:24-26

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.

Don’t waste your time on lucky charms, four leaf clovers or any other superstitions. Instead, spend time in prayer with the living God who hears your prayers. Thank God for all your blessing for every good and perfect gift comes from above. The Lord pours His blessings and grace on His people. He, and He alone is the reason for your blessings and peace. May the Lord keep you in His hands and let His blessing surround you with His love. Let His righteousness shine on you and His mercy and grace rain upon you. May He show you favor all the days of your life in Jesus name.

Pray Together

Matthew 18 20 (2)

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 18:20

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.

What a blessing it is to be able to pray for and with your sisters in Christ. Asking your friends to pray in unity with you to collectively make your request known to the Father helps you to build stronger relationships with each other and with God. Jesus promises that when you call on His name He will be there to help you and to bless you. Get a prayer group going among your friends and reap the benefits of praying together.
