Closer Than You Think



Closer Than You Think ! [Nov. 25, 2019]


“Do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward.”
(Hebrews 10:35, NIV)

Have you been praying and believing for something that seems like it’s taking a lot longer than you thought? Many times, people can miss God’s best simply because they give up before they see their “due season” come. Don’t let that be you! Be encouraged today, your answer is closer than you think. If it seems like things are getting more difficult, remember, when the intensity heats up, that means you are closer to your victory. It always seems darkest just before the dawn arrives.

We serve a faithful God, and He’s working behind the scenes on your behalf. Don’t cast away your confidence today because your reward is coming. And just like a new mother forgets about her labor pain once she is finally holding her newborn, you’ll forget about your struggle when you are holding on to your promise. While you are waiting, keep an attitude of faith and expectancy. Wake up every morning and say out loud, “I’ve come too far to give up now. My due season is coming. I will reap my harvest.” Stay in faith and look for His hand of blessing because He has promised you victory, and it’s closer than you think!


Father in heaven, today I stand believing that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. Give me Your strength to stand in faith until I see every promise fulfilled in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Trust His Timing















Trust His Timing ! [Nov. 21, 2019]


“My times are in Your hand…”
(Psalm 31:15, NASB)

One thing I’ve learned is that God doesn’t always work on our time table. In fact, He rarely does. But, in a single moment, God can change your life! All throughout scripture, we see examples of how God was working behind the scenes and instantly turned things around for His people. Scripture tells us He is the same yesterday, today and forever which means if He did it for them, He can instantly turn things around for you, too!

You may be going through some difficulty today, but be encouraged because your times are in God’s hands. Trust that He has your best interest at heart. He wants to pour out His favor. He wants to take you further than you dreamed possible and work in your life in ways beyond what you have ever imagined.

Let this truth sink down into your heart today. Resist discouragement by speaking His Word over your future. Keep standing, keep hoping and keep believing because He is working behind the scenes. Have faith because your times are in His hands, and He will lead you in the life of victory He has for you!


Father, today I humbly come before You giving You all that I am. I trust that my times are in Your hands. I trust that You are working things out in my favor. I set my focus on You knowing that You are working things out for my good in Jesus’ name. Amen.

PRAYING THE WORD! Overcoming Bitterness and Forgiveness


Read the scriptures prayers. Each prayer is a remix of the scripture verse. We have tried to stay true to the meaning of the Bible passage and are simply restating them back to God from a contrite heart.

Scripture Prayers for Bitterness and Forgiveness

Lord, help me to  be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. For I agree with You, my anger can never make things right in Your sight.
James 1:19-20

Father, I refuse to sin by letting anger gain control over me. I  choose not to let the sun go down while I am still angry, because I know that anger gives a mighty foothold to the Devil. Help me rid myself of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of malicious behavior. Instead, Father, I choose to be kind to others, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as You through Christ has forgiven me.
Ephesians 4:26, 31-32

Lord, help me to remember that You said that if I forgive those who sin against me, that my heavenly Father will forgive me as well. But if I refuse to forgive others, the Father will not forgive my sins. I know that I am saved by grace and not works, but this shows me how serious You are about forgiveness. Help me to follow Your example!
Matthew 6:14,15

Father, help me to remember that if my enemies are hungry, I should give them food to eat. If they are thirsty, I should give them water to drink. The truth is that when I do this it is as if I am heap burning coals on their heads, and I know that You, oh LORD, will reward you.
Proverbs 25:21-22

Father, Your word tells me to never avenge myself. Rather help me to leave that to You, dear God. For You have written, “I will take vengeance, I will repay those who deserve it,”says the Lord.
Romans 12:19

Father, help me to aim for harmony in the church and try to build others up.
Romans 14:19

Lord, help me remember that a gentle answer turns away wrath, but harsh words stir up anger.
Proverbs 15;1

Lord, help me to control their anger because if I do I will have great understanding; those with a hasty temper will make mistakes.
Proverbs 14:29

Lord, I choose to stop my angry habits! I need Your help in order to turn from my rage! Help me not to envy others–because it only leads to harm.
Psalms 37:8

Lord Jesus, You said that if I am angry with someone, that I am subject to judgment! If I call someone an idiot, that I am in danger of being brought before the high council. And if I curse someone, I am in danger of the fires of hell. Lord, you take anger and rage seriously, I repent of this evil. Help me also, remember anyone that has something against me, and give me the strength to obey You and go and become reconciled to that person.
Matthew 5:22-24

Father, help me to obey Your word where it says that if another believer sins against me, that I am to go privately to that person and point out their fault. Lord, if the other person listens and confesses it, then I have won that person back. But Father, if I am unsuccessful, help me to obey You by taking one or two others with me and go back again, so that everything I say may be confirmed by two or three witnesses. Lord, if after all this, that person still refuses to listen, then help me not to sin but take my case to the church. Help me to live as if I really believe You Jesus when you said that I am to forgive someone “seventy times seven!
Matthew 18:15-22

Dear God, since You chose me to be one of your holy people who You love, help me clothe myself with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Holy Father, help me to make allowance for the faults of others and help me be obedient and forgive the person who has offended me. Lord, I choose to remember, that You have   forgiven me of so much, that I must forgive others. Father, the most important piece of clothing I must wear is love. Love is what binds us all together in perfect harmony. So Holy Spirit, I want the peace that comes from You to rule in my heart because I am called to live in peace. And to always be thankful. And I do thank you Lord!
Colossians 3:12-15

Father, even now, when I am praying, help me to first forgive anyone that I am holding a grudge against, so that You dear Father in heaven, will forgive my sins, too.
Mark 11:25

Father, I keep working toward that day when I will finally be all that You saved me for and want me to be. I know that I am still not all I should be, but Lord, I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead. Jesus I am straining to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which You, through Christ Jesus, is calling me up to heaven.                                             Philippians 3:13-15

Father, I cannot even begin to understand what You meant when You said, “I will forgive their wrongdoings, and I will never again remember their sins.” Father, You are talking about me. So help me Lord when I am tempted to judge others to do the same thing You do. Help me forgive them for what they have done against me.
Hebrews 8:12

Jesus, You said that those who were without sin could cast the first stone at someone else’s sin. The truth is if I say tht I don’t have sin, I am deceiving myself, but if I confess my sin you are faithful and just to forgive me from all my sins and unrighteousness! How then can I hold on to this stone? Lord, I put down the rock. I have been looking at the speck in their eye and ignoring the beam in my own eye. Lord, forgive my sins as I forgive those who have sinned against me. I choose to forgive!
John 8:7; I John 1:8; Matthew 7:35, Matthew 6:12

Seek First

Seek First [July 12, 2015]


“All night long I search for you; in the morning I earnestly seek for God…”  (Isaiah 26:9, NLT)


Jesus said in Matthew 6, “Seek first the kingdom of God.” That word “seek” is a strong word. One definition is “to require as a vital necessity.” You have to see spending time with God as being vital to living a victorious life because some mornings we think, “I don’t want to get up early. I don’t feel like reading my Bible. I don’t feel like going to church today.” But once you get in a habit and see the benefits of how you feel refreshed and restored, you make better decisions, you’re more creative, you have God’s favor, and then you’ll think, “I can’t afford not to do it. When I don’t spend time with God, I don’t feel right. Something is missing.” “When I don’t go to church I don’t have the wisdom, the clarity, the direction. I don’t have the boost that I need for the week.”

Scripture says, “Seek first.” That indicates that we should take time for God at the start of the day. Don’t give Him your leftover time. Make Him a part of your normal routine. Make Him your first priority. Seek Him first, seek Him earnestly, and watch what He will do on your behalf


Father, today I choose to put You first. I acknowledge that without You, I can do nothing. I invite You to have Your way in my life as I seek You first in all that I do in Jesus’ name. Amen.
