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.

WORRIED ABOUT OUR KIDS? (1 and 2)

Posted on June 8, 2020 at 5:40 AM


 

  

ARE YOU TROUBLED FOR OUR CHILDREN?

Have you watched your teens and their friends decide to smoke pot? or cigarettes? Do you like their friends? What are they learning in school? Are you comfortable with your very young ones being taught sex in school; not only regular sex, but LGTB sex and having that philosophy being explained and being labelled a good choice? And how comfortable are you with your kids being told they can choose what sexual orientation they want as though God made a mistake.

 

If you are not happy about this, you had better be praying... I am really concerned as I watch the enemy trample through the minds of the next generation. He has many helpers and groups and teachers who are either currupted in their minds or deliberately wanting to steal our kids from God's ways.

 

Seems the enemy is using its deceptive evil going after our kids of all ages.  We call upon You Lord to save our children from the enemy. We know You love our kids even more than we do. Your Word promises that You will take care of them:

 

Praying for Rebellious Ones

For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God In the face of Christ. . .

 

Isaiah 9:2 (TPT)

2 Those who walked in darkness[a]
    have seen a radiant light shining upon them.[b]
    They once lived in the shadows of death,
    but now a glorious light has dawned![c]

 Footnotes:

Isaiah 9:2 See Isa. 8:20

Isaiah 9:2 Just as darkness and night have boundaries (Gen.1:4), so the Lord will cause gloom to end and the shadows to flee. He is the one who says, “It will last this long and not a day longer.” God begins in darkness and brings darkness into the day. The darkest thing in us will be bathed in his glory-light.

 

Isaiah 9:2 See Isa. 55:8; Matt. 4:15-16; Eph. 5:8. This glorious light includes Jesus’ teachings, his miracles, and his pure life lived before the Father. Jesus Christ is a light of rescue for the lost, comfort for the hurting, wholeness for the broken, and escape for the captive. It is the light of joy, the light of revelation, the light of deliverance. Jesus’ birth signals an end of night and the beginning of morning.


Lord, we pray, beam forth Your light out of the darkness and into the hearts of our kids; let Your truth shine, and enter their souls bringing illumination and revelation to them.

 

                                                       



Isaiah 8:20  (TPT)

20 You are to answer them: “Listen to the teaching and instruction of the Lord! If their speech does not line up with his word, they will have no light of dawn![a]

Footnotes:

Isaiah 8:20 Or “dayspring.” The implication for the believer is that we will have a “dawn.” The light of dawn is the hope of Jesus Christ that grows inside of us.

 

The path of the righteous is like the light of a sunrise shining in the eastern sky. From dark to dim to bright, it increases (Prov. 4:18). In times of calamity, make sure you quiet your heart and seal up the Word of God in your soul. The dawning of Christ’s glory is coming. For us, the early rays of morning light are already shining.


WE know these things about our God:

Parents and intercessors ask, "Lord, what do You want for this young generation?" Surely God's answer is that they inherit the promises promised to the descendants of His servants. Let us peruse some of His Word:

 

Deuteronomy 7:9 (Amp) Know, recognize, and understand therefore that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, Who keeps covenant and steadfast love and mercy with those who love Him and keep His commandments, to a thousand generations,

 

Psalm 33:11 (NIV 2010) But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, 
   the purposes of his heart through all generations.

 

Psalm 100:5 For the LORD is good and His love endures forever; 
   His faithfulness continues through all generations.


PROMISES FOR OUR CHILDREN

Psalm 112:2 Their children will be mighty in the land; 
the generation of the upright will be blessed.

 

Isaiah 41:4 Who has done such mighty deeds,
      summoning each new generation from the beginning of time?
   It is I, the Lord, the First and the Last.
      I alone am He.”


 

                                                                                                          



  

Isaiah 44:3 For I will pour out water to quench your thirst
      and to irrigate your parched fields.
   And I will pour out my Spirit on your descendants,
      and my blessing on your children.

 

 

 Isaiah 54:13, 17 NLT

I will teach all your children,
      and they will enjoy great peace;


54:17 NIV no weapon forged against you will prevail, 
   and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. 
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, 
   and this is their vindication from me,” 
   declares the LORD.

 

Claim this promise:

Isaiah 59:21 NIV As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the LORD. “My Spirit, who is in you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants—from this time on and forever,” says the LORD.

 


OUR PART IN THIS:

Acts 2:38-39 Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. This promise is to you, and to your children, and even to the Gentiles—all who have been called by the Lord our God.”

 

Eph 3:21 NLT Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

 


Thank God for every righteous forerunner of the next generation. In general, young people today are being opposed to a degree that perhaps the world has never seen. The adversary of their souls is waging spiritual battle for the lives of an entire generation. Those whom the enemy cannot extinguish by abortion he is intent on stealing, killing, or destroying at younger and younger ages. 

If you have a beloved rebel who is resisting the grace of God, your most urgent assignment is to pray for him or her, that they will withstand the enemy's assignments against them:

Lord I beseech You, Your Word promises You will bless them and not allow the enemy to have them. I call on Your promises:

 

Psalm 100:5 For the LORD is good and His love endures forever; 
   His faithfulness continues through all generations.

 

Psalm 112:2 Their children will be mighty in the land; 
   the generation of the upright will be blessed.

 

     

       ************************Part 2 *********************





WE MUST PRAY that our children will receive the incredible love of Father-God for them, Who does not wish any of them to perish. First, we need to pray this prayer for our own rebel wills, so that we can intercede from humility. We are all children of Adam, and our Intercessor sees our hearts that are prone to stray from Him. An old hymn sings our prayer, "Let Thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wand'ring heart to Thee. Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love. Here's my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for Thy courts above."





Pray strongly this way:
    
Holy Father, we know that we are not fighting flesh and blood. The Lord Jesus Christ has all spiritual authority in this battle for the spirit, soul, and body of our chldren.

 

The issue is who will rule them: the Lord Jesus Christ or the king of lawlessness. The adversary is prowling around seeking to devour them, but we pray that they will be self-controlled, alert, resisting him, standing firm in the faith


(1 Peter 5:8-9 NLT) We pray Lord, that our beloved children will stay alert Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil.

 

1 Peter 5:8-9  (NIV)

8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

 


From my position as priest in their lives, because I have authority in Jesus' name and blood, I command the enemy assignments against them to cease. I rebuke passivity, blindness, rebellion, and evil influence that would cause them to fall into errors of judgment, wrong choices, or outright sin. I take all curses and vows in force against them and our family and nail them to the cross of Jesus Christ

 

 

(Col. 2:13-15 NLT) You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. 14 He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. 15 In this way, He disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross.,

 

 

Galatians 3:13-15 The Passion Translation (TPT)

13 Yet, Christ paid the full price to set us free from the curse of the law. He absorbed it completely as he became a curse in our place. For it is written:

“Everyone who is hung upon a tree is doubly cursed.”[a]

14 Jesus, our Messiah, was cursed in our place and in so doing, dissolved the curse from our lives, so that all the blessings of Abraham can be poured out upon even non-Jewish believers. And now God gives us the promise of the wonderful Holy Spirit who lives within us when we believe in him.

 


JESUS DEATH ON THE CROSS DID THIS:

 Colossians 2:13-15 (TPT)13 This “realm of death” describes our former state, for we were held in sin’s grasp.[a] But now, we’ve been resurrected out of that “realm of death” never to return, for we are forever alive and forgiven of all our sins!

 

14 He canceled out every legal violation we had on our record and the old arrest warrant that stood to indict us. He erased it all—our sins, our stained[b] soul—he deleted it all and they cannot be retrieved! Everything we once were in Adam[c] has been placed onto his cross and nailed permanently there as a public display of cancellation.

 

15 Then Jesus 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[d] to accuse us. And by the power of the cross, Jesus led them around as prisoners in a procession of triumph. He was not their prisoner; they were his![e]

 


SEE GOD’S PROMISE TO/FOR YOU:

 (Ps. 91:10-13 Message) Yes, because God's your refuge, the High God your very own home, Evil can't get close to you,  harm can't get through the door. He ordered his angels to guard you wherever you go.  If you stumble, they'll catch you; their job is to keep you from falling.  You'll walk unharmed among lions and snakes, and kick young lions and serpents from the path.

 

(Luke 10:19 AMP) Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.

 

                                                                  

 

Now we stand and pray as Your Holy Word instructs:

I stand against ancestral, generational, and familiar empowerments. I plead Your covering of grace and mercy over all their present and past involvement in sin, iniquity, and rebellion that could give the evil one legal ground to affect or control. I pray for holy conviction of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus' name, I renounce and break the power of false loyalties and sever soul-ties with anybody who is not sold out to the true and living God.


ask the blood of the Beloved Son of God to judicially deal with and destroy the works of the evil one, thereby closing the doors to demonic harassment.

 Heavenly Father, Jesus in us is greater, and we pray for our Captain of the Lord's host to expose the schemes of wickedness and defeat its tactics. Protect our pokice officers with a heavenly guard of angels. Dispatch warring angels to fight this battle under the command of our Lord Jesus, the Ancient of Days and Captain of the Lord's hosts




From my position as priest in my children’s lives, I bless them in Jesus' name.  I pray that they will hunger and thirst for righteousness. Strengthen them in the Lord and cause them to order their life under the Lordship of Jesus. Establish them in godly wisdom and the fear of the Lord. Train them in the discipline of the Lord that will yield holiness and the fruit of righteousness. I ask for your favor to rest on them.


We claim the promises of Your Holy Word:

 Isaiah 49:25 AMP For thus says the Lord: Even the captives of the mighty will be taken away, and the prey of the terrible will be delivered; for I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will give safety to your children and ease them.




God, You commanded light to shine out of darkness. Please shine into my  rebel's heart to reveal Your glory in victory in their life. In Jesus' name, Amen.
