“But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8 NIV
Thank you, Lord, for all our blessings! All of the wonderful promises you have in store for us. Let me pray them down from heaven over myself and my sisters and brothers in Christ! Father, you have told us to put our trust in you and some days it is more difficult than others. Some days I look at what has yet to be done (sins uprooted, bondage broken, healing and restoration – and that is just for me). I am still holding on tight! I believe, help any unbelief in me!
Lord I want to be the tree planted by the waters – troubles comes, storms and winds, and/or droughts. Help my roots grow deep – past the stream to the spring of the living waters! When those struggles come, extend the grace so that my first word shall be: Dear Jesus!
“Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given.” John 1:16 NIV
Thank you Lord Jesus, that in this place of grace, you are pouring out more grace and mercy. I need your fullness! Now more than ever. I am emptying more each day and each day there is more room for you. Thank you. I praise you.
When the struggles come and through those troubles which are already here, I know you will preserve me and help me as it is written throughout your word. In this confidence, I ask you to meet my need according to your riches and I thank you that you have gone before me and made a way.
“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 NIV
“My God, my God” !!! Yes! You alone are my Adonai! And you meet all my needs – the broken heart that needs mending, the food, clothing and repairs to the house. You have blessed me with some and I know you will bless me with the rest. I ask for those blessings and thank you for them as your word says you are providing them. Let me now stand fast in belief and focus on the work you have laid out for me.
“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38 NIV
I give you my time and I see how you stretch it, and my tithe and I see how my bills are still paid. I give help when I can and I see how you bless it. I give my work and watch as you open doors for me to witness. I have little yet I try to use it for your glory. Let all that I have and all that I can give glorify you and bear witness to your goodness and mercy – and grace! Oh Lord Jesus – such sweet grace!
“May God bless us still, so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.” Psalm 67:7 NIV
Oh Father – what a wonderful thing will be, when I say “I’ll pray” in relation to anything and People respond, that now they know it will happen. They will come to revere and respect you. They will become followers of you just because they know you answer prayers. I know you answer prayers! You are a MIGHTY GOD!
I want the world to know you are the healer, provider, and blesser – that all good things come from you!
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17 NIV
Thank you Father – For you are good! Thank you Lord Jesus for your work of the cross. Thank you that you do not change, so if it is written in the Bible then it is so. It is written that I am blessed to be a blessing and you are a working God – always working on our behalf. I pray in the precious name of Jesus!
Dear readers – if you are still reading this strangely written post I also pray for you…
“The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you” Numbers 6:24-25 NIV
I pray that you are also blessed – and have a very real experience with my living and loving God. May he transform you into what you were meant to be and that he be glorified in you. ~amen
