HEAVENLY FATHER,

HALLOWED BE YOUR NAME. I thank YOU for this day because this is the day that YOU have made and I will rejoice and be glad in it. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, YOUR NAME is to be praised. I thank YOU for being THE MOST HIGH GOD and GREAT IS YOUR FAITHFULNESS. Thank you for being OUR LIGHT and OUR SALVATION and our SHEPHERD and therefore, we shall not want for anything. Create in us a clean heart, O GOD, and renew in us a right spirit. Make us to know the measure of our days and our end and just how frail we are. Because GOD YOU know our frame and know that we are dust. Let not our enemies triumph over us. Teach us to love our enemies and to pray for those that use us spitefully. Let us learn to forgive others of their debts and trespasses so that we will be forgiven. Thank you LORD for forgiving all our iniquities, and for healing all our diseases, and for redeeming our lives from destruction, and for crowning us with loving kindness and tender mercies. Order our steps IN YOUR WORD and let not any iniquity have dominion over us. O GOD, strengthen our hands and open our eyes that we may see spiritually so that we can walk by faith and not by natural eyesight alone. Let YOUR WILL be done on earth as it is in HEAVEN. Thank YOU for being THE GREAT I AM, and JEHOVAH JIREH, JEHOVAH NISSI, JEHOVAH SHALOM, JEHOVAH ROPHE, and even JEHOVAH TSIDKENU and so much more. In JESUS’ NAME, Amen.

W Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understandingProverbs 4:7

  –  Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. Proverbs 2: 3-5

S  –  She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.  She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.  Proverbs 3: 15, 18

D  –  Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; Proverbs 2:11-12

O  –  O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.  Proverbs 8:5

M  –  My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck. Proverbs 1:8-9  My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.  Proverbs 8:19  Many seek the ruler’s favour: but every man’s judgment cometh from the LORD.  Proverbs 29:26

Feed the Flock of GOD

written by Belinda Magee

Some ministers, some teachers,
Some pastors, some preachers,
Prey on the ignorance of GOD’S human creatures.

GOD’S WORD says to “feed the flock of GOD”,
But instead some of these leaders rob
The way GOD meant it to be
For HIS people to not be taken advantage of, but to see

HIS POWER,
HIS GLORY,
HIS JOY,
HIS AMAZING GRACE,

HIS MERCY,
HIS HEALING,
HIS GREAT LOVE,
All the time and in every place.

THE HOLY SPIRIT we are to receive,
To help us with the enemy that wants only to deceive.
The thief steals, kills, and destroys,
GOD sent JESUS for us to enjoy

Through Worship, and Praise, and Witnessing for HIM, too
Not to be idol worshippers boasting through pride of their just due.

Leaders of GOD should not deceive
But help men, women and children with salvific belief.
To spread THE GOOD NEWS and to see THE GLORY,
So that we can tell this wonderful story
That JESUS died for us and rose with POWER!
And our lives can and will be changed this very hour.

We were all made to be unique in GOD’S handiwork design.  Therefore, all of GOD’S children have work to do in HIS VINEYARD.  There is no need for copycats.  Think for a moment – – How has OUR HEAVENLY FATHER purposed you to witness for HIM and to bring HIM GLORY?

Let’s take a look at some examples by reading through the HOLY BIBLE:

Abel – Jesus called him “righteous” (Matthew 23:35) and he being dead    continues to speak to us about bringing an acceptable offering unto the LORD.(Read also Genesis 4: 1-12 and Hebrews 11:4)

AbrahamGOD changed his name from Abram to Abraham and called by GOD to leave his country and to journey by faith and being obedient, he is known as the ‘father of Faith’ and a ‘friend of GOD’. (Read Galatians 3:6-9 and Hebrews 11:8-19)

Joseph – He suffered at the hands of his brothers and went from the pit to the prison to the palace and he did not yield to temptation of Potiphar’s wife.  (Read Genesis 39:1-23 to Genesis 50:1-26)

Samuel – He was a good prophet who followed GOD’S COMMANDS who also anointed David to be king over Israel after King Saul‘s disobedience and even had influence after his death. (Read 1 Samuel 28:3-19)

Elisha – Elisha was selected to succeed the great prophet, Elijah and Elisha did many powerful works through receiving a”double portion” of Elijah’s spirit. (Read 2 Kings 2:9 – 2 Kings 9:1-37)

Daniel – He had integrity and did not worship idol gods and did not defile himself with the king’s meat & drink and GOD gave him “knowledge and skill in learning and wisdom: and had understanding in all visions and dreams.” (Daniel 1:17)

Shadrach, Meshach, Abed-nego – Three friends associated with Daniel that had integrity also and “GOD gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom:” (Daniel 1:17)   They also did not worship idol gods and knew they would be delivered from King Nebuchadnezzar‘s orders by THE ALMIGHTY GOD and knew that GOD was able to deliver them even if HE did not rescue them.
