Make an appeal to the King of Kings on behalf of our family, church, city, and nation. Intercede for the suffering Christians in the areas torn apart by ISIS in the Middle East. Cry out for restoration in the places where Satan has stolen from God’s people.
Recall the story of the Shunammite woman who showed kindness to Elisha, the prophet of God. When her house and land were taken in a time of famine, she “returned from the land of the Philistines and she went out to appeal to the king for her house and land.” The king commanded, “Restore all that was hers and all the produce of the field from the day that she left the land until now.” Show kindness as the Shunammite showed to Elisha. We make an appeal in the spirit of the Shunammite.
King of Glory, send a wave of Your mighty Spirit to bring full restoration...
A Sense of PurposeYou love God. You want to serve God. You didn’t ask for life to derail on you and leave you shattered and seemingly grasping the air to find where you are and where you are headed. I want to remind you that God does have a purpose for your life, even though disappointment in life may have devastated you for a time. The events of your life are not a surprise to God. He saw what was coming on the path of life for you, and He has a plan. Be encourage and keep standing!
And now God is building you, as living stones, into His spiritual temple. What's more, you are God's holy priests, who offer the spiritual sacrifices that please Him because of Jesus Christ." 1 Peter 2:5
Life's biggest challenge is deciding what's important – then disregarding the rest.Through it all, HIS LOVE is transforming us, perfecting us, completing us.
"Don't look back. Don't look back and you WILL move forward. Know that this year you are GOING where you are GIVING. Give toward greater things and greater anointings and greater ministries that you are walking in yourself and you WILL experience promotion."
Let us pray....
Dear Father God,
Please forgive me for the errors of yesterday and help me to walk close by your side today. Take my hand, precious Lord, for I cannot make it alone. Thank you Lord for all your many blessings, Amen
"Messengers Of Blessings"
"Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord: we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord." Palm 118:26
This verse was a prophecy concerning the Messiah who was to come. It was fulfilled in Jesus when He made His triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday riding on the colt of a donkey.
This verse was fulfilled in Christ Jesus but it is a continuation to what He fulfilled. It is continued through the Body of Christ. "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!' (Isaiah 52:7)
He fulfilled it, but we continue to make it known. When we share the good news of salvation with others, we do not share it in our own name or authority. We do it in "the name of the Lord". We are His messengers, announcing peace and proclaiming good tidings. We are "blessed" messengers bringing "blessings" to others. The Greek word here for blessed means: to invoke a blessings upon a person. Each time you share the message of salvation through Jesus Christ, each time they hear the Good News that Jesus saves, each time you testify to someone about Jesus, you are bringing a blessing into their lives. (Of course it is up to them whether they receive it or not.)
Do you want to be a "blessing" to others? The best way, the greatest way to do that is by sharing Jesus-- sharing the message of His love, His saving grace, His salvation, His mercy and His power.
Have a great day. We are messengers of the Lord who bring blessings to others as we share the good news that Jesus saves.

"Good Hearted Or God Hearted?"
"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9
I know a lot of really good-hearted people. They will do anything for you. They show a lot of compassion. They are always there when there is a problem. They are among the first ones to help. They will "give you the shirt of their back" or their last dollar if you need it. But is it enough to just be good-hearted? Especially when it comes to eternity?
A rich young ruler came to Jesus to ask a question. He addressed Jesus as "good master". Jesus corrected him by telling him that there is only one who is good-- God the Father. Meaning that in man dwells no good thing. We are not good, we are sinners with evil hearts. That is not to say that we don't do some good things like the people I described earlier. But our hearts have to be changed and transformed from "good" to "godly". Just because you have a "good heart" doesn't mean you have a "godly" heart.
The Bible tells us it all goes back to the heart. The heart has to be changed. The belief in Jesus as Savior for salvation has to come from the heart. We are to love the Lord God with all our heart. It has been said that a lot of people miss heaven by "eighteen- inches"-- the distance from the head to the heart.
Head knowledge of Jesus won't save you. Just having a mentally positive attitude about who Jesus is won't save you. Knowing that He is real and exist won't save you. Believing that He created everything won't save you either. It is with the heart that man believes unto righteousness. When the heart believes, it will become brand new. Then the heart will go from being just "good" to "godly" because God will give you a new heart-- a heart like His.
Have a great day. Are you just a good-hearted person? Or a God-hearted person? There is a difference.
