The way to see and do things that brings us no harm, even if takes hard work and great patience. The opposite of wisdom is foolishness, and nothing good comes from foolishness.
Prayer: "Lord Jesus Christ, I worship and adore you. You said that every good and perfect gift comes down from you. Wisdom is one gift that I need in abundance. Let your wisdom flow in my life to stop me from the time I have been wasting producing just wind. Let your wisdom be seen in my life by the decisions I make going forward. Show me your great love that comes directly from your heart to mine, in Jesus name. Amen."
April 14, 2018
Sharing a problem or a blessing is not only a sign of love but also a sign of trust.
Prayer: "Lord, help me to be more open with my hands to bless, and with my heart to confess my struggles and be prayed for, in Jesus name."

A behavior, a conduct will change when the needed corresponding Biblical belief matches up.
When our belief lines up with the word of God, our behaviors and conduct will change.
Prayer: " Lord God in heaven, help my unbelief so that your words ring both in my ears and my heart and bring about the inward and outward changes you desire in me, in Jesus name."

You have heard it said " if you keep giving to the poor, you will become the poor ". Nowhere in the Bible does it say anything like that. Generosity is the diving nature of God. If you are not generous, ask God to touch your heart and remind you of the blessings of generosity.
"Those who give to the poor will lack nothing, but those who close their eyes to them receive many curses." Proverbs 28:27
Prayer: Lord God, you are in heaven. Your name is holy. I need you today to forgive me and do a work in my heart. I am struggling with giving. I have seen generosity as a sign of weakness and ridiculed those who are generous and constantly giving. Help me to overcome the myths and lies I have believed about generous people and reshape me to become one of those generous people so I can show your truth, in Jesus name".

It's time to upgrade and present your best today. Tomorrow's best will take care of itself, by the grace of God.
No time for a second rate version of yourself or of someone else. Put Christ first and step out in a winner's mindset.
Prayer:Lord God, our father in heaven, your name is to holy. In the name of Jesus Christ your Son, while it is still today, help me to lift up my thinking and actions. Everywhere I need to be spiritually or otherwise upgraded to show your glory in my life, let that begin to happen for me. I confess that I have been satisfied with mediocrity but you have searched me and found me out. Lord, upgrade my life to an authentic Christian life filled with joy, wisdom, knowledge understanding, and the works that follow."
November 20, 2017
When you have been praying and God sends or brings the answer to your prayers after confirming that it is indeed God, say "yes".
MISHPOCHA: Reading Luke 21
I have heard this word used many times but I always thought it was Hebrew. No, it is Yiddish, of Eastern European origin.
Its meaning is a great way to express what it means to be a Christian.
"an entire family network comprising relatives by blood and marriage and sometimes including close friends; clan."
That is what makes Christianity so powerful and supernatural. Mishpocha. Christianity transcends biological relationships to supernaturally include all believers as one family under Messiah Jesus by His blood.
What blesses one, blesses all. What hurts one, hurts all.
Prayer: Lord God, our Father,
I thank you for the work of the cross of Jesus in our lives. Open my eyes and my heart to
see, love, receive and respect all my brothers and sisters in Christianity in
every tribe, every language, and every social situation. Help me to change my
limited thinking of the body of Christ and embrace its far reaching message
of Good News to people who do not speak and look like me. Deliver me from the
prejudices and discrimination that I showed over the years to people who look
and speak and worship differently than I. Thank you for bringing my heart back
to your heart to love as I ought to love. Turn my heart to care about my Christian
brothers and sisters who are being persecuted around the world while I sit comfortably
in my nation without remembering that what hurts them ought to be hurting me as well, and what is persecuting them may
one day happen in my own nation. This I
ask and pray in Jesus name. Amen.
2017 Reading Luke 21
Most people are remembered for riches or wealth. But, God said that it is better to be thought of highly by people than to be rich or wealthy.
We make money by hard work or by fraud. We earn esteem by God and of people by our character and holiness.
Prayer: "Lord Jesus, thank you for your word. Thank you for the esteem you have given me with people around me. Continue to give me the grace to walk in that Godly esteem all the days of my life. Teach me wisdom and pour understanding into my heart so that I will always make decisions that will maintain that esteem in my life, in Jesus name,"

Your tears are God's
creation in your internal being to rid your emotions and your mind of stress
and wounds on the heart. Tears are like medicine to a wounded heart. They seem
to have supernatural power to alleviate the pressure of that particular thing
that makes your heart heavy and your body tense.
To shed tears, especially in prayer, is a powerful message to God about
what it is you are unable to communicate with words. Many in
the Bible shed tears after attempting to fix a problem or get through
difficulties. Some shed tears of joy. Some shed tears when God worked a
miracle. Some shed tears when a loved one died. Some shed tears when they worshiped
God. Some shed tears in betrayal. Jesus shed tears because of the unbelief of those around Him.
Men and women should feel free
to shed tears when in the company of
those with whom they feel safe. Tears are to some people are a sign of weakness.
To some people tears are the sign of a person who is strong enough to be vulnerable.
But, whichever is the case, however you view tears, they are what they are. Tears
will flow when the situation at hand is just too much to bear and words cannot
adequately describe your inner feelings.
"Lord Jesus Christ, when I cry out you, hear my prayers and see my tears and come and rescue me from the situations for which I have no human solution. "
July 3, 2017
The Biblical truth and revelation of God's love that forgives our sins thru Jesus Christ and give us new life, new hope, and eternal life.

June 21, 2017
A great revelation of Scripture
breaks the need to do any good thing at any time without taking time to discern
if the time for the thing is the ripe time,
full of all that is needed to be fruitful.
Prayer: "'Almighty God, forgive me of hastiness in my life, which
has left me with delays,
a lot of cleaning up, a lot of wasting time, and the amount of times I blamed others
because I was
doing the right time at the wrong time. Please give me wisdom and discernment.
Help me to constrain myself to wait upon you for the ripe time that will
bring more fruitfulness into my actions, in Jesus name."
June 9, 2017
The act of God whereby you as a believer in God the Father through Jesus Christ the Son receives a new start (not a new chapter, but a whole new life). It begins by faith in Jesus Christ in the heart, turning from sin to righteousness, thereby affecting your present life and your future.
Things are made new, so all things become new. The world is still the same and getting more evil each day, but the eyes by which you see the world gives you a renewed, truer picture of hope thru Jesus Christ. Your mind responds by accepting your new life as God's plan is made clear to you.
Renewal begins with knowing and accepting the new person that you have been made thru your new relationship with God thru Christ Jesus.
Prayer: "Lord Jesus, I thank you for a renewed life. Let your Spirit and your power bring me into the fullness of all that this renewed life holds for me. Thank you for your mercies in my life renewed every day. "
June 5, 2017
The inner work of the Holy Spirit of God who goes deep inside every Christian to remove the thoughts and pains of the old nature of sin and hurts.
He cleans you out with spiritual purging so that the holiness and the newness of Jesus Christ can be seen in your body, soul, and spirit.
Prayer: "Lord Jesus, do a deep cleaning in me and make me what I have never been or what I have never known my self to be . Take away the painful, subconscious hurts and scars of my life before Jesus. Cleanse me of anger, unforgiveness, bitterness and self-deprecation caused by the many hurts that I have suffered since the day of my birth until today. Lord, let your joy be my strength and your love my anchor."

The word glory makes sense when attached to the name of the Lord God. It is a word that most people say gladly because it is a beautiful word. It is equally a powerful word. But, it is overwhelmingly a word that is not fully understood.
Glory speaks of God's excellent reputation, His awesome presence, His brightness, His attributes and attitudes, His power in your life, His display of power in the heavens, on the earth, and in the seas. It speaks of what God has done and is doing now. Things too high and great for mankind to duplicate or replicate.
But, one thing it does say in the Bible about God's glory is that it increases and goes from one degree to another in the life of all who believe in Jesus Christ and are filled with His presence, His Holy Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3
Prayer: "Lord God, may all the faded glory of the past give way to the greater glory of you my Lord today in my life, in Jesus name. Amen."
May 22, 2017
Most people like the fiery preacher. But the Teacher filled with the Holy Spirit brings a student to a lifetime of Godly excellence.
Prayer: "Lord Jesus, sharpen my gift in teaching so that I may impart to your people what continually blesses and equips them for a lifetime of excellence."
April 11, 2017
What is the best and when do you know if you or someone else has experienced or given their best?
The more we talk to God and people, the more we learn to be His best.
Best can only be found thru life in Jesus Christ.
March 29, 2017
In the Bible God uses words like "hundredfold", "increase on every side" and so on. But, in modern words there is a mathematical term that equates pretty much to what God has been saying all along. It is found it in the word "exponential". This giant word talks about rapid increase.
Is that not how God works? Yes, it is written many places in the Bible where God groomed and grew someone exponentially to let others see and believe the reality and the possibility of God of the impossible.
Prayer: " Father, in the name of Jesus, visit my life and groom and grow me exponentially by your powerful hands that people will see You in my life and inquire about your goodness because of Your rapid grooming and grace in my life. I thank and praise you. Amen."
March 13. 2017
One of the most personal and human thing we do is to cry and shed tears. Some tears come from a glad heart. Bitter tears come from a broken heart. Tears that seem unstoppable come from a broken life.
Disappointments in life hurt and bring tears that burn when they run down your face. The deeper the hurt, the more the tears flow and you can feel the pain coming out with the tears.
Sometimes it feels like God is not listening to your prayers or acting on your behalf because you see no change.
You cry in prayer. You cry in the car. You cry at work. You cry at your desk. You cry over your meals. You cry in bed. You cry in the shower. You cry in church.
Your tears says that the matter about which you are praying still hurts or the outcome is not the one you hoped for.
May this prayer below help you to get thru each day until your change comes. Jesus has seen your tears, knows your situation, and is ready to help you. Just ask Him from a humble heart to take you thru day by day until the answer comes and you can break thru with a smile.
"Lord Jesus , let my tears before you be a sign that I am in a broken place and I desperately need your help. When I was making the decision that brought me here today, I was not thinking about the future. I was too bound up in the pleasures and the happiness I was experiencing at that time.
Those same decisions are now making me sick in my body and sick to my stomach.
Lord, here I am. Forgive me. I don't know where to start. Take this burden. It is too heavy for me. Hear my payers, see my tears and help me. I have nowhere else to turn and no one else to share these personal and painful things that make me cry.
Help me God. You are my only source. I thank and praise you, in Jesus name."
March 10, 2017
"Every authority connected with chaos or confusion operating in my life, Lord Jesus destroy it and never let it rise in my life again. You are the Prince of Peace. Let your peace reign over every contrary power and contrary authority in my life and in family."

SELFLESSNESS THRU FORGIVENESS:
There are some things that Jesus will expect you to do that you don't want to do. One of those is to forgive those who have hurt and caused you pain. He has asked us all to forgive and allow another person to live without being overwhelmed by depression for asking and begging to be forgiven, but not receiving it.
"Lord God, help me today to embrace and act out of the power and love in forgiveness over the bitterness and anger and hatred of unforgiveness. Help me to put other people's interests before my own and prove that I am truly a Christian. Open my eyes to see that forgiveness not only sets the guilty free to learn some important lessons for life , but it also frees me as well, in Jesus name."
God has been giving specific patterns for living, building, and bonding since the creation of mankind.
When we allow His set patterns to be applied to our lives, we set the corresponding results.
Most especially, as we apply the teachings of Jesus, even when we pass thru difficulties we see how set patterns from God get us thru life's tough moments.
"Lord God, the pattern of life you intended for me to live and think, the pattern for me to succeed, the pattern for me to obey, help me to be still as you apply that heavenly pattern to my life. The pattern I have been using is not working. I need your divine help, in Jesus name"
February 27, 2017
"Lord Jesus, get me out of this insane situation in which I feel trapped like a bird caught in a net. I feel alone as if no one cares about what I have been passing thru for way too long. Jesus, forgive my sins, cleanse me, give me a new heart and a perfect spirit. Deliver me. Help me to escape this type of life I am living. Bring peace between me and you. Bring peace to my life. Let my life meet with what I have heard called your glory. I am not sure what your glory looks like, but because it comes from you, I know that it will be awesome and the best thing that could ever happen to my life.
Lord, do this for me in this month of February.
I ask for this escape in Jesus name."

October 7, 2016
"Lord, set my feet on the course that will not lead me to catastrophe. I have lived my life thinking that any time is a good time and any destination is good so long as it produces some good thing in my life. I have wasted much time pursuing my own reality. The pain is just too much. Lord Jesus, divinely intervene in the misdirected course of my life. I surrender to your strong foundation and your course for my life, in Jesus name. "
September 27, 2016
"Lord Jesus, I divorce the unproductive, useless things from my past. The twisted ways I spoke and thought. The delusions that brought me heartaches, embarrassment, sleepless nights and nothing to show for life. The poor decisions that left me financially, spiritually and emotionally bankrupt, I release them now and command them to depart from my life. I grab hold of what you are doing in my life today. Move me forward, my Lard and my God, in Jesus name "

ALWAYS GIVE YOUR BEST: Prayer
"Almighty God, I have heard you. I have been giving people the dregs of my life and the unfit things that are just garbage. I will no longer give people the worst just because they are poor and needy. I now realize that my giving has been a reflection of the condition of my heart.
Thank you for your correction in my life, my character, and my attitude, in Jesus name. I truly thank you and worship you."
"..... selling even the sweepings with the wheat." Amos 8:6

November 6, 2015
Word for the day: SOVEREIGN GOD:
"Lord, in this new month, help me to embrace your sovereignty in areas of my life over which I have resisted your plan for my life. I have been frustrating myself thru incorrect understanding and wrong prayers over things that you have permanently set in order both for my life and for the world.
I am now understanding you, Sovereign Lord thru your word and I am not afraid. You are for me, not against me. I love you for that and for much more, in Jesus name.
November 2, 2015
I will spend more time in devotion with the Lord Jesus Christ instead of trying to prove how devoted I am to the Lord.

I surrender to the Holy Spirit to create in me a new heart and a steadfast spirit. I declare that it is time for me to bless and not stress people who depend on me in the church and in the workplace. Jesus, I earnestly seek you to permanently break this useless stronghold in my life, in Jesus name" October 2, 2015
Prayer: My eyes are open to you, Jesus. Let me see what I have been blind to so that my decisions please you and bless my life.

With you, I am victorious and serious. To you be all the glory and honor and praise forever. Amen." September 2, 2015 Proverbs 12:24
THE HOLY SPIRIT:
Prayer: My Holy Father in heaven and my God, in the name of Jesus, I pray for the leading and guiding in my life by your precious Holy Spirit. Lead me away from lies and harm and bring me into all your truth and safety.
Whether in prayer, in requests, or in business, communicate your needs or requests clearly. When you pray to God about things that are vital to your physical or spiritual life, it blesses our own soul to hear ourselves communicate clearly with God. When God answers, our faith is built, and He gets all the glory.

then let wisdom rise in me to transform the way I act and react in it.

Keep the vows you made to the Lord or to your church when you were happy or when you were in trouble. Numbers 30:2
'God is not a human who lies or a mortal who changes His mind.When He says something, He will do it; when He makes a promise, He will fulfill it. Look, I am ordered to bless; when He blesses, I can’t reverse it.
Don't be so quick to throw people away just because they don't match your expectations or because they say you don't match their expectations. Allow time to grow love, not enmity. Like green grass on hard soil, sow seeds of growth, not roots of bitterness.

Lord, let the healthy and good things of life mark my life and wipe away whatever looks like the days when I lacked.

The One who brings one down and sets another in places of honor
The One who declares and no one can reverse
The miracle working God that heals, delivers and sets people free
Lift up His name forever

Minutia: Whether or not I believe that God is involved in the minutia of my life, I definitely know that God is concerned with those trifling details that collectively affect my overall life.
