1 John 5:18-19

We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
1 John 5:18‭-‬19 NASB

Jesus, born of God, without sin, pure and holy; praise be unto Your name. You gave Yourself for my sin and rescued me from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father. I pray Lord God to live a pure and undefiled religion in Your sight by keeping myself unstained by the world and in Your love, O God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of my Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life. Father, thank You for Your perfect plan – Jesus, the seed who abides in me and keeps me from the evil one who cannot touch me. The whole world lies in the power of the evil one but we are kept in Jesus, protected from the evil one. Hallelujah to my Almighty God in whom I trust, amen.
Galatians 1:4/James 1:27/Jude 1:21 NASB

🌹No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
1 John 3:9 NASB

But We Have. . .

For to us God revealed them (all that God has prepared for those who love Him) through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God.
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual (or non-spiritual) thoughts with spiritual words.
But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.
But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one.
For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.
1 Corinthians 2:10‭-‬16 NASB

Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are Your judgments and unfathomable Your ways! For who has known Your mind, Lord, or who became Your counselor? 
You have granted us to know the mysteries of Your kingdom, God.
For to Your own You have revealed all that has been prepared for us by way of Your Holy Spirit through Christ. For from Jesus and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever! Amen.

I thank You, God, for I have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear, but I have received a spirit of adoption as Your child by which I cry out, “Abba! Father!”                     God, I pray my message and proclamation of You in my life is a demonstration of the Spirit and of power. For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
Thank You Father for the mind of Christ made available through the Holy Spirit to the glory of God! Amen

🌹But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.

Philippians 3:20-21

For our citizenship (commonwealth) is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform (our lowly body) the body of our humble state into conformity with (His glorious body) the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself.
Philippians 3:20‭-‬21 NASB

I praise You, Lord Jesus Christ, Savior, who has the power to transform my lowly body
into conformity with Your glorious body. I surrender to Your yoke of power over me. Thank You for opening the door of opportunity to partake in Your household, no longer a stranger or alien, but a fellow citizen with the saints. God, I pray for Your church, that we will conduct ourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, standing firm in one spirit, with one mind, striving together for the faith of the gospel.
Father God, I will keep seeking the things above, where Christ is seated at Your right hand, because I have been raised up with Christ who died for me.
For just as I have borne the image of the earthy, I will also bear the image of the heavenly, for I know Your word says, “that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable”. But God You also promised that in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. Hallelujah to the King! For You I eagerly wait Lord Jesus. Amen.
Ephesians 2:19/Philippians 1:27/Colossians 3:1/1 Corinthians 15:49‭-‬50/1 Corinthians 15:52‭-‬53 NASB

Philippians 3:10-11

that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
Philippians 3:10‭-‬11 NASB

God of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Eternal Lord and King. Powerful God over death and giver of the resurrected life found in Jesus. Glory, honor and praise be to You. I pray Lord to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you sent; for in Him is my eternal life established. Multiply in me the knowledge of You, God, and of Jesus, my Lord so that I count all things as lost in view of the surpassing value of knowing Jesus. Your divine power, has granted to me everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Jesus who called me by his own glory and excellence.
I pray I become united with You, Jesus, in the likeness of Your death so that I may also be in the likeness of Your resurrection. I have been crucified in You and I will one day know the power of Your resurrection. Jesus I pray to persevere, as You did, to suffer with You so that I may also be glorified with You.
Lord may I not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I will finish my course and the ministry which I received from You, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God. I had the sentence of death within myself so that I would not trust in myself but in You, God, who raises the dead. Hallelujah!! Praise God!!! I will carry about in my body the dying of my Savior, so that Your life, Jesus, may be manifested in my body for the sake of others and to Your glory! Amen.
John 17:3/2 Peter 1:2/Philippians 3:8/2 Peter 1:3/Galatians 2:20/Romans 6:5/Romans 8:17/Acts 20:25/2 Corinthians 1:92 Corinthians 4:10 NASB

Our Helper

“These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.
John 14:25‭-‬26 NASB

“These things I, Jesus, have spoken to you”. The spoken word of Christ to His disciples. Who is Jesus?
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 NASB1995
Jesus, the Word made flesh. Jesus who spoke truth to His disciples. How do we hear Jesus? Through the Bible. Do you want to know God, His plans, His character, His love for you? Pick up the Bible and read it. Read it daily. Read it often. Listen to it. Obey it.

If you are a born again believer you have the Holy Spirit of God in you. How awesome is that?! He was given as a Helper who will teach us. As we read the Bible the Holy Spirit teaches us like Jesus taught the disciples. His spoken word.

The really awesome part of having the Holy Spirit residing in us is that when we fill our mind and heart with the word of God the Holy Spirit uses the Bible to direct our steps, speak truth, testify of Jesus and brings to remembrance the Word of God when needed.

🌹Jesus. Savior. Promise Keeper. Thank You for sending forth the promise of the Father, the Holy Spirit, upon us, who clothes us in the power from on high. The Holy Spirit, our Helper, sent by You, the Father, is the Spirit of truth who testifies of Jesus to us. Help us to believe the Scriptures and the word which You, Jesus, have spoken and to be obedient and learn from the teaching of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus name, amen.

Power in Jesus

which He (God the  Father) brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.
Ephesians 1:20‭-‬21 NASB

🌹Prayer:
All powerful, mighty God, my Father; all things were created, both in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Jesus and for Jesus. Jesus, You spoke to Your disciples, of which I profess to be, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Jesus, You were crucified, put to death, but God raised You up putting an end to the agony and power over death!! Hallelujah,  I rejoice that You sit at the right hand of the Father far above all rule and authority and power and dominion. You are ruler over all people. Your name, Jesus, is above all names. In Your name, Lord Jesus, I find my confidence to face the world for Your purpose and glory! Amen.
Colossians 1:16/Matthew 28:18/Acts 2:24/Philippians 2:8-9 NASB

The Lord is for me; I will not fear; What can man do to me?
Psalms 118:6 NASB

Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Friday’s Praise: The King

And every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying, “To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever.”
Revelation 5:13 NASB

🌹Prayer:

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all.
Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

Until I Declare

My mouth is filled with Your praise And with Your glory all day long.
Psalms 71:8‭ NASB

Do you ever experience this Psalmist’s elation? Does it last all day long? Is your everyday life filled with praise to God? As you meditate (think on) all that God has done for you, what is your response to God and what are you motivated to do? Hopefully it is to do as this psalmist did. . .

And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to all who are to come. For Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the heavens, You who have done great things; O God, who is like You?
Psalms 71:18-19 NASB

🌹Praise God for His righteousness and the great things He has done!!! I will declare!

Enduring and Everlasting Kingdom

There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.
Isaiah 9:7 NASB

In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which will never be destroyed, and that kingdom will not be left for another people; it will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, but it will itself endure forever.
Daniel 2:44 NASB

He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.”
Luke 1:32‭-‬33 NASB

Looking at the world today there is much turmoil, anguish, uncertainty that instills fear in so many. But for the believer and follower of Jesus Christ there is hope. There is an everlasting Kingdom for the Christian whose King is the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the Son of the Most High and His kingdom had no end.

🌹Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness. In that is peace and hope.

Powerful & Mighty

and he (Jehoshaphat) said, “O Lord, the God of our fathers, are You not God in the heavens? And are You not ruler over all the kingdoms of the nations? Power and might are in Your hand so that no one can stand against You. ‘Should evil come upon us, the sword, or judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we will stand before this house and before You (for Your name is in this house) and cry to You in our distress, and You will hear and deliver us.’
2 Chronicles 20:6‭, ‬9 NASB

There is a powerful and mighty ruler over all the nations of the world who has the power over anyone or anything that comes at His church. God alone and He is just a prayer away. Where do you place your trust? In whom is your stability and peace.

🌹Seek God. He is waiting and willing to listen.
