Read Luke 6:27-28 Soap vs 27-28

Lk 6:27-28 KJV But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, 28. Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

Well,…..if you can’t say Amen, say OUCH! These last few months my life has seen ups, downs, and revisits. I have been in a state of overflowing questions, with very limited and short answers. I have and still feel as if I have been backdoored. I find myself just standing still and allowing, as they say, the chips fall where they may. But how many know that God is in control. He is in control of all things. Regardless of how I may feel or think I am to always pray for those whom have done me wrong. So if I can’t say Amen, say OUCH!

A right now word for a right now situation. 😉

Love ya bunches,

Read 1 Timothy 2:1-3 SOAP vs 1-2

1 Tim 2:1-2 KJV  I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving thanks, be made for all men; 2. For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

I am to always pray and pray for all men, mankind. This reminds me of the everywhere prayer that I hear so often about in church. Pray always and lift up everyone. Cover everyone and not just my circle. I will never know just how much others, everywhere prayer, covered me.

Be blessed,

Col 1:3-4 KJV “We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, 4. Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints,”

The word of God points out that I am to always pray. Pray not just for me and my love one’s, but everyone. I am to pray, cover those newly converted and those who have been in it for awhile. Pray for those who do not believe and those who waver. I am to always pray and allow the Holy Spirit to guide me. So that I may know what and who to pray for. By allowing the Holy Spirit to work within me to cover others.

I can’t keep everything to myself. Its about kingdom building and praying for everyone.

God bless,

Matt 26: 41 KJV “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak“.

It is detrimental to my very existence that I should always pray. The enemy desires to take me out for all eternity. I must be able to see the works of the enemy and my weaknesses for what they are. In order to do that I must be connected to the vine. I must be able to see as God sees, have a strong spirit man, and my flesh must die. The only way I can do this is through prayer.

My lifestyle must be one of prayer and studying the word of God. The instructions of life are written in the Word of God, in order to have an understanding and godly outlook I must prayer. Somethings are not given to me just by reading the word. But through prayer. When I have a true lifestyle of prayer, open two-way communication, things become clearer and my spirit man will gain strength. Most of all when my spirit lines up with the things of God, my fleshly man will begin to die and be pruned away. To truly be in God my spirit man MUST be healthy and well nourished. Not shriveled up in the corner.

I am to Pray always! Prayer is a meeting between me and the One who knows all things. It is my daily, periodic throughout the day, end of day meeting of clarification, guidance, and understanding.

Be blessed,

In my daily walk I am to walk in the wisdom and knowledge of the Father. He gives me wisdom and knowledge in order to walk in his ways. Not only me but others. I should pray for his wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to be poured out upon his people. with the understanding of him, how can his people have the mind of him? The truth is that Jesus came to earth, without sin was crucified upon the cross, and on the 3rd day rose again for my sins. He did all of that so that I may have everlasting life.

Wk 4 D 5

Read Colossians 4:2 & 1 Thessalonians 5: 20 SOAP v 5:17

1 Thes 5:17 KJV “Pray without ceasing”.

I am to pray always and watch for the works of the Lord with thanksgiving on my lips. My heart should be over flowing with praise unto my Heavenly Father. My heart should be over flowing with continuously prayer unto my Heavenly Father. I should be attuned to the moves of God and be ready for his guidance. Sadly, I am not fully their yet… 😦

I am working and striving to get to that point in my life. However, my emotions and feelings tend to guiding me more. However, as I continue to dig deeper and reach out to my Father in prayer I am being transformed into the person I was created to be. I just have to maintain, stay focused and, tune my entire being into God. I must allow him to work in and through me continuously. For I am a work in progress, striving to be all that he created me to be.

God bless,

Read Mark 11:23-24 SOAP v 24

Mark 11:24 KJV “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them”.

My faith level must at least match my prayer level. What I pray in secret, out loud, or corporately, my faith level must be there. My faith must be on the same level or greater. Its all about my faith. My faith must be sure and strong in the one whom I am praying to. If it is not then there is no reason to pray. If my faith, belief, and hope is not in it then I might as well sleep in. 🙂

Be blessed,

Wk 4 D 3

Luke 18: 1, 7 KJV

And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not faint: 7. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?

Jesus is telling me to come unto him always. Lay my cares at his feet continuously and do not quit. Don’t stop coming to him when things don’t go exactly go how I plan, don’t stop when things at work aren’t going good, don’t stop when my family is in an uproar. DON’T stop praying and turning everything over to him. For in my faithfulness through prayer things will begin to change. I will change and my viewpoint will change. Don’t stop praying for he is on my side and will work everything out. If ONLY I would fully trust, lean on him, and  take my hands off of it. 🙂

Have a blessed and wonderful day,

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. 8. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. Ps 37: 7-8 KJV

I must be sure in God and trust him in all things. I must learn how to turn everything over to him and allow him to work it out. I must learn to stop wondering and asking why. I must just let God be God and I sit back to watch it all unfold. I am learning how to rest in God and allow the relationship that we have to mature. What come will come but I must be ready for what is coming. In order for me to be ready, I must first trust in the One who knows all things, the can that lead me down the straight and narrow path.

I’m learning how to truly trust.

Be blessed,

JRLL ❤

Ps 62:8 KJV “Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah”.

Trust sticks out to me, like a neon light on a dark deserted road. Throughout this journey there have been and will be challenges to overcome. I have been hurt physically, mentally, and spiritually. During those times God was asking me to just trust him, only if I would have listened. Things would have been a lot different. So now I am learning to trust and seek him the more. To speak with him the more and learn of  and from him.

Most of I am learning to trust and be obedient unto him.

God  bless,
