Wise Prayer

Mistakes are often made when one is too eager to get the job done.

You would be wise to be respectful and use caution when advancing into the unknown. When receiving instruction to move forward, it is expected that you will be prayerful about the advance. Enlist wisdom from above. I will provide it liberally, giving direction and encouragement as well.

Enlist Me

I await your invitation. I AM respectful of your time, for it is necessary that you exercise your will in all aspects of the call. I empower you, but I do not overpower or control you.

I AM delighted when My faithful ones are ready and listening for My direction. As long as they are willing and move forward, I continue to lead. But I do not push, nor prod or pull.

It is the willing and obedient that eat the good of the land.

Are you willing?

Will you obey?

Are you hungry?

Let us prepare–Let’s pray!

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all men generously and without reproaching, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways, will receive anything from the Lord.” James 1:5-8

“Therefore gird up your minds, be sober, set your hope fully upon the grace that is coming to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; since it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy.'” I Peter 1:13-16

“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature. For this very reason make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these things are yours and abound, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” II Peter 1:3-8

“–we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, to lead a life worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:9-14

“If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday. And the Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your desire with good things, and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.” Isaiah 58:10-11

“If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land.” Isaiah 1:19

 

My Beloved

There is an assurance that comes from knowing who you are in Christ. It is “knowing” that I am my Beloved’s and He is mine. You will do well to remember this when times are difficult and you find yourself in times of stress.

I am my Beloved’s and He is mine.

Any difficulty you face will be brought into a new focus with this in mind. For there is no challenge you face in life that I have not already empowered you to overcome. If life is overwhelming you, then you have dropped the lifeline.

  • Pick it up again in My Word.
  • Find who you are through My Word.
  • Be refreshed in My Word.
  • Do not face your day without first facing My Word.

You will see with new perspective. You will be more selective and you will no longer run or cower from adverse circumstances, but face them knowing

I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine!

“My beloved is mine and I am his, he pastures his flock among the lilies.” Song of Solomon 2:16

“He destined us in love to be his sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace which he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.” Eph. 1:5-6

“And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.” Gal. 3:29

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” I Jn. 5:4-5

“In the world you have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

“For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came from the Father.” I Jn. 16:27
