O my God lead me… As I awoke this morning You Blessed me with a message to bless others as if it were my last day to shine…
Mt 5:15 “Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
Lu 8:16 “No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a vessel or puts it under a bed, but sets it on a lampstand, that those who enter may see the light.
When I sit down before You in question, You give me Answer, You enlighten me…
ASK and you will receive… “Whatever things asked for in prayer, BELIEVING, you will receive”. SEEK and you will find… “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” KNOCK and the door will be opened to you… Where Jesus “stands at the door and knocks. All who hears His voice and opens the door, He will come in to them and dine with them and they with HE.” And in prayer, HE gave me Answer. My God, my God, GRACE!
Thank You Lord for when I am weak, You make me strong. As I had laid down my heart before Your Court and prayed mercy, You gave me… 2 Cor 12: 9… “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness “ Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 10Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
The enemy can take my body, but he can’t take my spirit. It is no longer in my possession… “Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.” (A childhood prayer in the midst of a raging storm.) My Father, my Lord, keeps my spirit, His investment, safe, sound, HIS… for eternity. If God is for me, then I ask… who can come against me, and win?! (Not a question, His Promise!) And as for my body… ‘absent of the body, present with the Lord!’ Thank You Jesus!!!
Lord, Your Grace is sufficient. Your Word is living and afresh every morning. So I say to all who has an ear to hear…
“Let your light so shine before men (mankind), that they may see your good works and glorify the Father in Heaven” Mt. 5:16
… as if it were your last day.
In Christ, always… jams4JESUS
O my God lead me… I want to go where You go, be where You are, say what You’d say, and do what You’d do… all Your way. O my God, lead me in the path of YOU. My spirit cries out… Show me the door I must pass through, the chamber I must enter unannounced, a leader to impress You upon, a people to discern over righteously, a battle to fight in Your honor, a prayer my heart may speak, a meeting to intrude… that I may Sit at Your feet, Carry Your oil, Spread Your Word, Shine light Your WAY, Seek Your TRUTH, Honor Your LIFE… Praise JESUS!
In Christ, always… jams4JESUS
As I laid across Your altar and cried out for Your wisdom, guidance, direction… “Lord, where will You have me go? I will, Your will. I will go wherever You are, wherever I know You will be and want me to be also. Where do You want me to go?” It was then, I heard in my heart and spirit … “you go, I’ll be there.”
As I pour out my thoughts of Him, to you, who has an ear, I am reminded of a vision (February 28, 2010):
I saw the challis, once again, high and lifted up. I saw through the cup, and there lied within was HIS living water. I cried out ‘O Lord’, “Here am I, send me” I heard in my spirit ‘Are you ready to drink from the cup for which I have prepared for you?’ I knew in my spirit that this question was not just for me this time but also for those around me, my house… the kingdom of God. The right response, the answer- “Here am I, send me”… with all that I have, with all that I am, knowing what I am, because I am… Yours. If all I have left to give You is…, I give You!
What Captain would lead his men to battle without first equipping them with the proper armor? “Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? (Mt 7:9) So I say to you… “If you (we) then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your (our) children, how much more will your (our) Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! (Mt 7:11)
‘Are you ready to drink from the cup for which I have prepared for you?’ “Search me O Lord, the answer of my heart… ” As I uttered this, the cup began to pour out its living water and as it did I saw the waves approaching. I cried out “more, more, more, more…”. Upon touchdown, my field of vision turned to an eagle in full wing spread… ‘freedom’. Instantly, the eagle turned to a dove, and flew.
