My friends, who has prayed a prayer and it has not been answered? God asks when the end comes will there be persistence in faith on the earth? Well here is one persons thoughts on answered prayer:

 

The Prayer Secret of Praying for Results

 ISAIAH 43:25, 26 I, even I, am He that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Put Me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.


Notice that God said, "Put Me in remembrance." Those who have been mighty in prayer have always been those who reminded God of His promises and brought His Word before Him. So, have we been doing that?


Charles Finney is probably the most outstanding exponent of prayer. He is known as the man who prayed down revivals. He has the greatest success, and his converts were the most consistent since the days of the Apostle Paul. It is common knowledge that eighty-five percent of his converts remained true to God.



D. L. Moody was a great evangelist, but only about fifty percent of his converts remained faithful. We have had a mighty move over the past several years, but it is common knowledge that not more than fifty percent of the converts have remained true to the Lord. Finney had the greatest success numbers' wise as far as keeping the fruit of his labor, since the days of the Apostle Paul - whole cities were stirred.


                                                 



For instance, I read in Finney's autobiography that in 1829 he went to the city of Rochester, New York, where he conducted a meeting and practically everyone in town was saved. All the grog shops closed down. (We now call them honky-tonks and beer joints.) There was not a place left in town where one could buy anything to drink. The only theater in town closed down. There was such a revival that when a circus came to town, only two people went to see it, so it had closed. Everyone was interested in God. The revival was on. The people were just not concerned about anything else.


I also read that Finney went to hold another meeting when he was a Presbyterian. He had been talking about fifteen minutes when the power of God fell on him. About four hundred people fell off their seats onto the floor, and it was a Presbyterian church! He didn't know what was happening, but he said that he found out later they had all been sinners and had just gotten saved when they fell under the power. Finney prayed for revival. He was a real man of prayer. He said that he had some experiences in prayer that indeed alarmed him. He added that he found himself saying to the Lord, "Lord, You don't think that we are not going to have revival here, do You? You don't think that You could withhold Your blessing?" He found himself reminding the Lord what He had promised....

 

 Smith Wigglesworth said that God delights in His children having the audacity of faith to say, "God, You have promised it, so now do it." You say that in faith". This agrees with what God says, for God said, "Put Me in remembrance." They were putting Him in remembrance of what He said. If God wants us to put Him in remembrance, then let's do it. Isaiah 43:26 said it.

  

Prayed...

By faith we stand on the written Word of God - it is true!

Today we take our place of authority and call things that are not as though they are

We speak wholeness, health, and change of heart to the broken hearted

Declaring peace over them and covering them in the Blood of Jesus

 

God has a plan for you!

We pray over political positions of authority

Every office covered in the Blood of Jesus

The Blood covering every state

Lifting up specific locations in America


   




There will be ministries in every state that will be lifted up and others that will be brought down

 

ISAIAH 43:25, 26 I, even I, am He that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. 
Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.

 

How often do we do that in prayer? We know God is faithful. We know He loves us, so if He wrote that we should put Him in remembrance, then that is what He meant. So let us pray with audacity and remind God of His promises.


                                                       

 

 


WHAT IS GRACE?

Posted on November 30, 2018 at 2:10 AM Comments comments (2)


 .......................................................................


Grace is the free and unmerited favor of God. He  gives it even though we have done nothing to deserve it. So how does it work? What does it do for us?


Romans 5:1-2 (The Message)

By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us—set us right with him, make us fit for him—we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. 

And that's not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God's grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise.



...................................................


We praise You Jesus, You Who unlocked the doors of grace for us, Who opened the door to the paths of wisdom. Without You and without them, we are nowhere and no one doing nothing of eternal value. OK Here comes the part where pride can lift its insidious head. (Eternal value clicked on the pride button as tho I would be known for eternity and that is something to seek). Stupid pride!

  ............................................................................................................


Lord Jesus we seek to live a life You lived. Your value was to do the work of the Father;  we seek to do the same. You showed us Who the Father is. . .  our job is to spread the Word and show people Who the Father truly is! Give us words to sow for You Jesus. We are Yours to form and mold. Time is short and we find ourselves becoming impatient to do Your work. Please slow us down to Your divine speed Jesus. Please help us get this right.


Romans 5:1-2 (New King James Version) Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.


...........................


Romans 5:1-2 (New Living Translation)   Faith Brings Joy                                                 Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.


 ..........................


This Scripture, Jesus, I have put in several translations to try and grasp it more fully; help us Holy Spirit. Jesus You came to give us fuller understanding of the Father. Open our eyes to fully grasp Your Word when we need the deepest meaning of it. Jesus You paid for the punishment of all our sins and Father God considered Your sacrifice as our debt 'Paid in Full'. This cleansed us so we could have a deep personal relationship with our Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

For me the best thing about Grace is that it does bestow on us the gift which enables a deep supernatural connection with God himself!. Hallelujah!



 

Is He a Loving God?

Posted on March 6, 2012 at 12:50 AM Comments comments (2)

Seems people believe God does not like them very much. I’ve heard them say when a loved one dies, “It’s God’s will.” Or when a tragedy happens, “Why did God do that?” or “Why did God allow that?” or “I don’t believe in a loving God, because there is so much pain in the world.”


It saddens my heart, because I know God as a loving Father; He protects me and teaches me and walks with me when I go through difficult times. He is the Author of goodness and beauty, but is often accused of authoring ugliness and pain. it’s just not so!


Jesus came to teach us about the Father. He taught us God is good, loving, patient, kind, merciful, and just. In studying His Word, I have found it to be so. When I chose to give my life to Jesus, the truth was revealed and life became much more joy-filled. Do I have challenges? YES! Of course! How can you grow without challenges? But my God always leads the way through them. Can we question God? Yes, by all means! Just wait for and trust in His answer. It eases life and lessens pain; truth may be difficult, but it is oh so freeing.


The devil’s mission is to steal, kill, and destroy. He perverts truth, he lies, and tries every way he can to take us down, and to cause a breach between us and God. Stand in defense of yourself by becoming familiar with the Word and what the Holy Spirit wants to say to you personally. The book Cast Up A Highway is full of Scripture lessons on constructing your own inner spiritual strength. Hold fast to the truth! Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. Begin to reinforce this truth in yourself!!


SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
