A Change of Heart

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.” (Jeremiah 17:9-10 KJV)

“Those times when men had no knowledge were overlooked by God, but now he gives orders to all men in every place to undergo a change of heart:…” (Acts 17:30 BBE)

“And hearing these things they said nothing more, but gave glory to God, saying, Then to the Gentiles as to us has God given a change of heart, so that they may have life.” (Acts 11:18 BBE)

“For whose coming to John made ready the way by preaching to all the people of Israel the baptism which goes with a change of heart.” (Acts 13:24 BBE)

“Or is it nothing to you that God had pity on you, waiting and putting up with you for so long, not seeing that in his pity God’s desire is to give you a change of heart?” (Romans 2:4 BBE)

“Gently guiding those who go against the teaching; if by chance God may give them a change of heart and true knowledge.” (2 Timothy 2:25 BBE)


Last night during the third watch of the night, I was praying and interceding for many things.  It was my church’s Night Watch Vigil that we have the last Friday/Saturday of the month.  I took the third watch from 12:00AM until 3:00AM.

It was an incredible night for me because I worshipped my way into His presence and it was a very real and tangible presence that settled in the sanctuary of the church.  He was there to discuss the things on my heart and on His heart.  I was a tearful mess.  His presence overcomes all emotions.

I have been watching the happenings in America with a heavy heart.  I watch as the Heavenly Father seeks to establish righteousness in our nation but so many just don’t want it.  They want to continue to slide into depravity and rebellion.  The righteous of God are becoming more and more despised.  Right now, it’s dangerous to wear a hat with the wrong thing written on it.  It’s dangerous to be a political conservative on a college campus.  We are very close to violence breaking out against the people of God just for being a Christian.

People today do not have a moral compass.  Good is evil and evil is good.  They can’t tell if they are male or female anymore because biology doesn’t count as the marker.  Young boys are being celebrated for being drag queens.  How are they legally allowed to dance in a gay strip club?  How are they legally allowed to pose with a naked drag queen man?

Lawmakers are pushing yet more and more extreme abortion measures including infanticide.  Who is next?  The disabled?  The mentally ill?  The elderly?  Whose life doesn’t matter to these all-powerful lawmakers who have taken the scepter of the Ancient of Days for themselves?

In the Christian world, there has never been more division.  Truly, the tares and the wheat are being separated.  There are relatively few true Bible teaching churches in comparison to the compromised churches in America.  False doctrines have crept into these churches lulling people into a false sense of security.  Their sinful lifestyles are ignored so they can fill a pew and put a few dollars in the offering plate.  The blood of Jesus, holiness, sanctification, and repentance are not “relevant” anymore and cannot be preached for fear of losing out on the money.  Divorce in the church is no different than the world.  Drinking and partying are no different than the world.  Filthy language is no different in many cases.  The list goes on and on.  What has changed?  THE HEART has changed.

Yet in spite of all this horrible news, the good news is that God STILL loves them.  His grace is still there for “whosoever will” to come to Him for salvation.  There is a battle raging in the unseen realm that if we could see it, we would be terrified at what Satan wants to do to the human race.

But the real battle is in the heart of mankind.  Nothing in our natural circumstances will change until our hearts change.  Until our hearts turn back to God or turn TO God.  This nation must have revival.  We must have an outpouring that will change the hearts of people back to God.  We have lost an entire generation to secularism and many have turned to paganism.  They want to see supernatural power and they have never seen the power of God in the dead and compromised churches they grew up in.  This is not the Church Jesus died for!

But what can we, as individuals do?  As true lovers of God, what can we do to turn the tide back to God?  We, as individuals, must examine our own hearts first.  Do we walk with Him?  Do we have an intimate friendship with Him?  What is His place on our daily “to do” list?  Is He first or dead last?  Are our oil lamps full and our wicks trimmed?  Are we ready to meet Him?  These are questions we must regularly ask ourselves because it is so easy to get caught up with the cares of life.  So easy.

We, as true lovers of God, can PRAY for everyone.  The Bible tells us to do so…every day.  God needs us to pray because He has given us, His Church, the authority to change the world through prayer.  I can promise you that everything going on in this mixed up world is important to the Ancient of Days.  It is on His heart.  If His people will repent and turn wholeheartedly to Him and PRAY for the lost, the government leaders, the nation, the Body of Christ, their local church and its leaders.  Pray for a change of heart among these people.  Only God can change a heart, but He needs intercessors to love them and Him enough to pray faithfully.

If this would happen, we would begin to see a shift in so many things.  The light would destroy the darkness.  Where there is light, there cannot be darkness.  We are the bearers of the Light of the World.  It can start with one person in one church.  The spark can ignite a forest fire…it can start with YOU.

Blessings everyone…

A Mother’s Chance

“You formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside and my intricate outside…

You even formed every bone in my body when You created me in the secret place…

You carefully and skillfully shaped me from nothing to something…

You saw who You created me to be before I became me!

Before I ever saw the light of day, the number of days You planned for me was already recorded in Your book…

Every single moment You are thinking of me!  How precious and wonderful to consider that You cherish me constantly in Your every thought! (Psalm 139)


God loves life.  He loves ALL life.  Jesus said that our Heavenly Father is aware when a sparrow falls to the ground.  How much more is He aware of each person who is alive in the earth today whether they are inside the womb or outside the womb.

Recent decisions in America regarding abortion have been made into law and even infanticide is being pushed for legalization.  Right now the most powerful person on earth is a pregnant woman.  She holds in her body the life and destiny of another human being.  With one phone call, she can literally stop God’s plan for a person’s destiny.  One hour of time can snuff out the light of a life that is full of purpose.  How many people has God sent to the earth to discover medical breakthroughs or invent things that can bring people wealth and clean living?  How many people were sent but could not get out of the womb to fulfill their destiny?

This is a plea to the woman who sees no way out.  To the girl carrying her father’s baby.  To the girl raped by a stranger.  To the woman whose baby isn’t her husband’s child.  To the woman whose child has Down’s Syndrome.  No matter what the circumstances of conception, the child inside you still has a destiny.  A God-given purpose to fulfill in the history of man.  All he or she needs is a chance at life.  Just a chance.

There are thousands and thousands of couples across the world who desperately want a child to bring into their family.  A child to shower with their love and care.  Abortion is not the only solution.  There are organizations all over America that are ready to help you during this time.  What is a few months of time to give a person a chance at life?  What is a few hours of pain in giving birth to give a person an opportunity to enjoy the beach, good food, fun times and watching the morning sunrise?  Even if their life isn’t the greatest, it’s still LIFE and as long as there is life, there is HOPE.  Abortion ends it forever.

But what about you?  The desperateness of your situation is of great importance to God.  Even though you may not know Him, He is madly in love with you.  He has a book with your name on that is very near His heart.  He is not mad at you or wants to destroy you in hell or condemn you to a miserable life.  No!  Just as He has a wonderful plan for the child in your womb, He also has the same for YOU.  You may be so beat down and think you are worth nothing, but you are worth everything to your Heavenly Father.  When He looks at you, He wants so much for you to look His way.  To even just whisper His name.  He’ll come quickly to meet you.  Even today.  Even sitting at your appointment at the abortion clinic.

You may be sitting at the clinic waiting for your appointment to begin.  But you don’t have to do it.  You don’t have to stay.  If you turn to Him, He will be with you through the hard circumstances.  You have the chance, as a mother to give the greatest gift to your child and that is LIFE.  Just a chance at life.

To the woman who has already had an abortion, your Heavenly Father’s opinion of YOU has not changed.  He still loves you.  He has already forgiven you.  He wants to heal you.  He wants to give you a chance at a full life without regrets.

If you are reading this, and you want to change your destiny, you can.  You can make two important decisions right now.  You can come to Jesus and let Him guide you through this situation, and you can decide to give your child a chance at life.  I have placed links below to help you do both of these things.  I pray that you will fulfill God’s plan for your life.

Meet Jesus Here…

Options

Pregnancy Help

Adoption Help

The word “choice” means that there is more than one option.  More than one choice.  A mother’s chance to give life to another human being is the greatest gift to mankind that anyone can do.

Blessings everyone…

The Sheep and the Goats

“But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. Before Him, all the nations will be gathered, and he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.” (Matthew 25:31-33)


I believe we are living in the last days before the great tribulation begins.  Indeed, we are staring it down eyeball to eyeball.  There is a war in the earth right now for this one world system; the beast system to be implemented.  It was on schedule to happen until God said “NO” by installing Donald Trump into the presidency.  It has turned the whole world upside down.  The United States was headed for destruction and even now, the same people and demonic forces are trying to bring about that agenda.  But people are waking up around the world.  Freedom is ringing around the world.

The Bible talks about sheep nations and goat nations.  The sheep represent the people who love Yehovah God and the goats represent those who are aligned with Satan, the god of this world.  What makes them a sheep or a goat nation?  Their leaders.  Their government laws.  Do they legislate righteousness or evil?  Do they sanction life?  Do they favor liberty of worship?  Do they treat the people of God fairly and justly?

Inside the United States, we have fifty states.  I’m beginning to see sheep states and goat states forming.  Our nation is divided every way humanly possible to be divided.  We are divided politically, sexually, religiously, gender, geographically, racially and economically.  Every facet of our society is divided.  It is most noticeable politically where the people on the left (i.e. Democrats, liberals or progressives (socialists/communists) and the right (i.e. Republicans, conservatives, patriots/nationalists).  The leadership of the left has gone so far to the extreme left that they are pushing extreme abortion.  Really it’s infanticide.  It’s the murder of babies.  Several states, including New York, Vermont, Alaska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, and Washington D.C.  allow the mother to kill her baby up until the moment of birth.  This is according to the Daily Wire.

Why are they pushing such late-term abortions?  One word: MONEY.  The abortion industry is big business.  There is a big demand for dead babies.  Babies are a commodity to the abortion industry organizations.  The later in the pregnancy the abortion takes place, the more money they can get for a fully formed organ or tissue.  It’s not about the mother’s health anymore.  It’s pure unadulterated GREED.  The demand is fueling the black market organ harvesting of people also.  All over the world, people are being kidnapped and killed for their organs.  We used to be horrified at elephants being killed for their ivory tusks.  Now humans are prey to other humans.  We are indeed living in perilous times.

In the United States, there are states that are putting restrictions on abortion.  They are limiting it.  Some states have passed laws that prohibit abortions after 14 weeks or 20 weeks.  It’s still not good enough but at least they are moving in the right direction.  These states are sheep states.  They are aligning with life.  The states with no limits are the goat states.  What does this mean?  It means that the goat states are setting themselves up for the judgment of Yehovah.  He will begin to lift His hand of divine protection and things will begin to happen in that state.  You watch.

On the other hand, the sheep states who are aligning with righteousness and justice will prosper and be blessed.  Ohio, Kentucky, Louisiana, and Alabama to name a few are putting restrictions on abortion.

It will be interesting to see what happens in the coming months in the states that have progressed down this slippery slope.  The next question is “who is next?”  Since human life is now being judged by mankind, who is next on their list of unnecessary people?  The disabled? The handicapped? The elderly?  They already have assisted suicide.  What’s next?  Are we going to be living in a Logan’s Run society where you can only live until you are no longer of any value to the society?  I can see why Jesus said, “if those days weren’t shortened, there would be no flesh saved alive.”  In other words, the human race would go extinct.  All because people have decided to play god and determine the value of human life.

This is just a pondering of mine and is only my humble opinion.  If you are a Christian, please pray for humanity.  We are all valuable to God, even if people don’t value us.  It is God who counts.  Pray for everyone because there is a lot of hurting people, abused people, and dying people.  Pray for love to abound, because no matter how evil it becomes, God’s grace and mercy are greater.  Keep praying…

Blessings everyone…

When Darkness Settles

This week the news broke that the state of New York has passed an extreme abortion law that allows abortions up to the moment of birth with NO allowance to try to save the baby should he or she survive the abortion.  Not only that, but NON-doctors can perform abortions.

The governor refused to sign the budget unless this law was passed and he got his way.  Ever since I read and heard this horrific news, my heart has been troubled and very sad.  What kind of person does it take to look into the face of an innocent infant and coldly snuff out that life?  Is it a monster?  Is it a boogeyman?  No, it could be your neighbor or even your doctor.

Last night I even had trouble falling asleep because I was so troubled about this darkness that is settling over the country.  I saw an article yesterday that Vermont is considering a similar bill in their state.  It’s like fast-growing cancer that could sweep our nation at the state level.

Yes, this is a risk, but let’s look at the state of New York.  Darkness has now settled over that state.  They have aligned with a principality and power that feeds off the blood of the innocents.  I encourage Christians in New York to pray like you never have before for mercy because when the blood starts running and crying out to their Creator, He WILL lift His hand off of that state.

The absence of God brings darkness.  When the evil rule a land, the people mourn.  This scripture is being lived out before our very eyes.  In New York and in Washington DC.  God wants to establish righteousness in this land but there are wicked people who love the darkness and are fighting Him at every turn.

This is a pondering, just thoughts I have on it.  I sense the darkness settling over New York and my heart hurts for my fellow believers who live there and are suffering under the evil rulers there.  Most especially for the infants who are in grave danger of extermination just because they exist.

This also a call to ALL Christians to pray for the babies in New York, the Christians in New York and most especially the leaders in New York that they would repent and turn to righteousness.  It’s not too late for the light to burst forth in that state.

Stay strong believers…time is drawing near for our Bridegroom

The Believer’s Rite of Passage

“My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can!  For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things.  And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection  into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.” (James 1:2-4)

“And if anyone longs to be wise, ask God for wisdom and He will give it!  He won’t see your lack of wisdom as an opportunity to scold you over your failures, but He will overwhelm your failures with His generous grace.  Just make sure you ask empower by confident faith without doubting that you will receive.  For the ambivalent person believes one minute and doubts the next.  Being undecided makes you become like the rough seas driven and tossed by the wind.  You’re up one minute and tossed down the next.  When you are half-hearted and wavering it leaves you unstable.  Can you really expect to receive anything from the Lord when you’re in that condition?” (James 1:5-8)

“The believer who is poor still has reasons to boast, for he has been placed on high.  But those who are rich should boast in how God has brought them low and humbled them, for all their earthly glory will one day fade away like a wildflower in the meadow.” (James 1:9-11).

“If your faith remains strong, even while surrounded by life’s difficulties you will continue to experience the untold blessings of God!  True happiness comes as you PASS THE TEST with faith, and receive the victorious crown of the life promised to every lover of God.!” (James 1:12)

“When you are tempted don’t ever say, “God is tempting me,” for God is incapable of being tempted by evil and He is NEVER the source of temptation.  Instead, it is each person’s own desires and thoughts that drag them into evil and lure them away into darkness.  Evil desires give birth to evil actions.  And when sin is fully mature it can murder you!  So my friend, don’t be fooled by your own desires!” (James 1:13-16)

“Every gift God freely gives us good and perfect, streaming down from the Father of lights, who shines from the heavens with no hidden shadow or darkness and is never subject to change.  God was delighted to give us birth by the TRUTH of His infallible Word so that we would fulfill His chosen destiny for us and become the favorite ones out of all His creation!” (James 1:17-18)


This teaching is a result of a deep pondering I’ve been in over the last few days.  There are people in my life, who I love very much, that are going through things that are tough.  The waves seem to be a hundred feet high.  Of course, I am standing with them and praying for them to come out strong on the other side.  This brought me to ponder on my own life and where I’ve come from and where I am now.  I began to see that we all have to go through seasons of testing and trials.  It’s part of our maturity in Christ.  We have to establish dominion in our realm of influence (our world) in order to fulfill our destiny in God.  And Satan is determined to stop us from doing this.

The Bible says that the Accuser of the brethren is up in the Court of Heaven day and night, accusing the saints of God; even demanding to be allowed to sift us.  He did it to Job, he did it to Peter and he has done it to everyone who is seeking the fullness of God in their lives.  Nominal Christians, aren’t really bothered too much because they aren’t pushing into the intimate relationship with God that much.  They are content to live on the surface.  However, those who dare to go deeper will find their lives turned upside down in many cases.

It is a season of testing.  Satan is challenging our faith.  His ultimate goal is to drive us back to mediocrity or to turn away from God completely and go back into his realm.  Into the realm of UNBELIEF.  And here is the key.  Unbelief is the absence of faith and we cannot receive anything from the Kingdom realm in a state of unbelief.  This gives Satan full freedom to destroy and shipwreck our faith.  We must stand against it.  We MUST BELIEVE GOD!

I met Jesus when I was just nine years old and I fell in love with Him, but after a season of protection and grace; when I was growing in the things of God, I was tempted and I fell into that temptation as a teenager and went into the world for a decade.  My whole life was a roller coaster of faithfulness and faithlessness.  I have to admit that my life was pretty defeated.  I was chewed up and spit out by the enemy because of my lack of understanding and knowledge of God on a deeper level.  It wasn’t until a few years ago when I began to really pursue the intimate relationship that I came to understand who I really am in Christ.

The more I got to know Him in this pursuit, the less Satan was able to overrun me.  Oh, he came at me hard when I started this journey.  I spent at least two years in a fierce battle for my identity in Christ.  The pressure was intense because I didn’t really know my authority, my created value or my identity.  But when I began to see that, his ability to push me down began to lessen.  Today, I have established dominion in my realm of influence (my world) and I can honestly say that I do not feel the same pressure from the enemy as before.  Does he still try?  Sure he does, but I know who I am and I know in Whom I believe.  I have learned to apply James chapter one to my life.  I have learned to stand in my authority and not look at the wind or the waves when they do come.  Am I perfect?  No.  Sometimes I get frustrated, but I am quick to repent for any unbelief that tries to creep in and I quickly get back into my position of faith.

I believe that every believer who chooses to pursue a deeper walk with the Lord will come into this rite of passage.  It is HOW we respond to these challenges that determine the severity of future challenges.  The closer the relationship with Jesus, the more fortified your realm of influence is and less ability and opportunity Satan has to move against you, once you win the battle.

How can we win this fierce battle?  1) Don’t give up!  Like Jesus set His face like a flint to go to Jerusalem to die for us, set your face to overcome and establish dominion in your world.  2) Press into God even more!  The greater the pressure, the deeper you press into God.  Spend more time in praying in the Spirit and in worship. 3) Incorporate fasting into your life.  Jesus said, “this kind doesn’t come out but by prayer and fasting.”  Fasting builds confidence and belief in God to a higher level.  The stronger your belief, the less ability Satan has to wreck you. 4) Be thankful!  Your prayers should be full of thanksgiving to God for victory.  Camp out in Colossians to decree those powerful words over your life. 5) Become Immoveable.  Think of an oak tree.  The taproot of an oak tree goes very deep.  It provides a solid anchor for the tree when the hurricane force winds blow over it.  Jesus is our taproot.  We have to be grounded in Him so that when the winds do blow, we won’t be uprooted and destroyed.  This is done in a steady, faithful and diligent pursuit of Him in the intimate relationship.  It can be done nowhere else and nobody can do it for you.  This is your walk with God.

If you are a believer and your life has suddenly begun to swerve out of control, it could be your rite of passage has begun.  When we first meet Jesus and He has set us free and delivered us, we are so on fire for Him!  We are determined to set the world on fire for the Kingdom of God and we delight in victory after victory.  Grace abounds to us.  But there comes a day when we will be tried by the devil.  Just like Job and just like Peter.  Satan wants to see what we are made of, so he demands to sift us.  This is the rite of passage.  This is the biggest war we will fight in our Christian walk.  It is a battle we must win.  How does Satan get in though?  Our WORDS.  Our everyday words are indicators of what we are thinking and what is in our heart.  He can read us through our words.

For example, Satan has attacked my finances for years, and for years, I would have my “official” confession of faith statements, but in my heart, I was angry that God wasn’t taking care of the devil for me.  I had a silent accusation against God that came out in my decisions and words.  Instead of trusting God to deliver me, I got seven credit cards to pay my bills, which has brought disaster to my finances.  But today, I have set my face like a flint, I am thankful, I am in the immovable position, I am pressing in deeper and deeper.  I still have to deal with the circumstances of my bad choices, BUT God is providing for all my needs.  He is bringing me out!

I encourage you today to take stock of your circumstances and if you have entered this season of testing, press in deeper to God.  Increase your belief!  Don’t let the enemy rob you of spiritual strength by what he is doing in your natural world.  This is a war you have to win or you won’t be able to fulfill your destiny to the fullest extent God has for you.  You have a great cloud of witnesses who are cheering you on!  Read James 1 over and over to be encouraged to press on.  In the end, WE WILL WIN IF WE DON’T GIVE UP!

Don’t know Him?

Meet Jesus Here…

Blessings everyone…

A Crafted Prayer from Colossians Chapter Three

Colossians is an awesome and powerful book full of equally powerful words!  Use this prayer as a way to worship and declare God’s goodness and Truth over your life today!


Father, I thank You that Jesus Christ’s resurrection is my resurrection too!  Therefore, I yearn for all that is above, for that’s where Christ sits enthroned at the place of all power, honor, and authority!  Hallelujah!  Yes, I choose today to feast on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill my thoughts with heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm. 

Father, I thank You that my crucifixion with Jesus Christ has severed the tie to this life for me, and now my true life is hidden away in You in Jesus!  And as Jesus Christ Himself is seen for who He is, who I really am will also be revealed, for I know that I am now one with Him in His glory!

Father, today I choose to live as one who has died to every form of sexual sin and impurity.  I choose to live as one who died to diseases, and desires for forbidden things, including the desire for wealth, which I know is idol worship in Your sight.  I choose today to be obedient to Your will and Your ways because I know that those who live in these vices ignite Your anger against such disobedience.  Not me Lord!  I love You too much.

Father, I thank You that I have eliminated and am eliminating from my life once and for all ––anger, fits of rage, all forms of hatred, cursing, filthy speech and lying.  I choose today to lay aside my old adam-self with its masquerade and disguise.  Because Now Lord, I have acquired new creation life!  I am being continually renewed into the likeness of the One who created me.  You give me the full revelation of God, Lord Jesus!  I believe that this new creation life, my nationality makes no difference or my ethnicity, education, or economic status––they matter nothing to You!  Hallelujah!  It is Jesus Christ that means everything because He lives big on the inside of me!

Father, I thank You and I know that I am always and dearly loved by You!  Today I choose to robe myself with the virtues of God, since I know I have been divinely chosen to be holy.  I choose today Lord to be merciful as I endeavor to understand others; to look at them through Your eyes.  I choose today Father, to be compassionate, and show kindness towards all those people I come across today.  I choose to tolerate the weaknesses of those in the family of faith, and I choose to not become offended at the opinions of others.  I choose today Lord, to forgive even as You have forgiven me.  Let Your graciousness become my graciousness O Lord!  Father, I realize that forgiveness is a powerful gift and even as I have received forgiveness, so I choose to release it to others today.

Father, thank You for Agape Love!  This love is supreme, and I choose to let it flow through me today.  I choose to strive to reach the mark of Love because I believe that Your love is the mark of true maturity in You.  Let my heart always be guided by Your peace O Lord!  For I know that You have called me to peace as part of Your One body.  I am thankful today for You and I always will be.

Father, let the Word of Christ live in my richly, flooding me with all wisdom.  Let this be the hallmark of my life O God!  I choose today to apply the scriptures as I teach and instruct others in the way of righteousness.  Let all my activities today Lord, every word that comes from my lips, be drenched with the beauty of my Lord Jesus, the Anointed One.  I choose to bring constant praise to You Father because of what Jesus has done for me!  I can’t ever thank You enough!

Father, today I choose to live my life with a pure heart in the constant awe and wonder of You, my Lord and Savior.  I choose today to put my heart and soul into every activity on my “to do” list.  Everything I do today Lord is an act of worship unto You to bring glory to Your Holy name.  I know that I will receive a reward, an inheritance from You as I serve Yehovah, the Anointed One!  I am a disciple of Christ and I know that I will be repaid for what I have learned and followed, for You Lord, pay no attention to the titles and prestige of men.  Hallelujah!

Blessings everyone…

A Crafted Prayer from Colossians Chapter Two

Hi everyone ~ Here is a crafted prayer I did from Chapter 2 of Colossians!  What an awesome way t connect with God.  I pray it brings you all to a new level of intimacy in Him today and every day you pray it.

Father, I thank You that my heart is wrapped in the comfort of heaven and woven together into love’s fabric.  I thank You that I have access to all the riches of You as I experience the revelation of Your great mystery which is Jesus Christ!  Thank You that my spiritual wealth is in Him.  You, Lord Jesus, are my hidden treasure waiting to be discovered––heaven’s wisdom and endless riches of revelation knowledge belong to me!

Father, I thank You for the nurture and admonition that You have given me so that am now disciplined and deeply committed to You.  I do have a solid faith in Jesus Christ, the Anointed One, because of Your great love!

Thank You Father for this wonderful journey of faith in You!  I am progressing further and going ever-deeper into my union with You.  My spiritual roots go deeply into Your very life and I am continually infused with strength, encouraged in every way by Your precious Word! 

Father, thank You that because Jesus is the complete fullness of deity living in human form, my own completeness is now found in You, Jesus!  Hallelujah!  I am completely filled with You as Christ’s fullness overflows within me.  You are the Head of every kingdom and authority in the universe!  And You are my Savior, my Lord, my Master, the Lover of my soul!

Thank You, Jesus that through my union with You, I have experienced the circumcision of my heart.  All the guilt and power of sin has been cut away and is now extinct because of what You have accomplished for me!  For I have been buried with You into Your death.  My “baptism into death” also means that I have been raised with You when I believed in God’s resurrection power!  The same power that raised Jesus from death’s realm, now dwells in me!  I am no longer held in sin’s grasp, but through my death to self, I am now alive unto God; never to return to my old ways!  I am forever alive and forgiven of all my sins!

Father, I thank You and praise You for cancelling out every legal violation that was on my record and the old arrest warrant that stood to indict me.  You have erased it all––my sins, my stained soul––You have deleted it all and they cannot be retrieved!  Hallelujah!  Everything I once was in Adam has been replaced onto the Cross of Jesus Christ and nailed permanently there as a public display of cancellation.

Jesus, I rejoice in the knowledge that You made a public spectacle of all the powers and principalities of darkness, stripping away from them every weapon and all their spiritual authority and power to accuse me!  And by the power of the Cross, You led them around as prisoners in a procession of triumph.  They were and still are your prisoners!  They are under Your feet and so they are under MY feet!  Glory to God!

Father, thank You that I receive everything directly from You.  You are my source.  MY source for peace, for provisions, for health, for victory, for purpose, for joy and happiness, for contentment!  For everything!  Hallelujah!  For you are the divine Head who guides me and causes me to grow by the supernatural power of God.

Father, I thank You that I am included in the death of Christ and have died with Him to the religious system and powers of this world.  I refuse to retreat back to being bullied by the standards and opinions of religion.  I thank You for purchasing liberty and freedom through the Cross of Jesus!  Hallelujah!

I give You all the glory and honor and praise in Jesus’ Name.  Amen and Amen!

Blessings everyone…
