Daily Devotional – 4/8/20 “I’m still praying.”

Dear God,

I humbly petition your throne under submission and with your permission, asking that your will be done. God, give us today daily bread that shall fill us. Give us provisions that shall sustain us. Give us power to resist the enemy and he’ll flee. Give us strength to not fall into temptations and deliver us from evil. Give us the words and voice to forgive others so that you forgive us. And God, thank you. Thank you for keeping us, for not taking your hand away, for shielding our mind, for healing what we didn’t even know we were suffering with and for not ignoring our pleas.

Now God, while you’re listening, heal our land. God, go into every city, town and country and heal. Calm anxiety, wipe tears of fear and comfort those who are grieving. God, even during this chaotic time, keep us close to you. While we go through this pandemic of sickness and confusion, God hear and answer prayers. For it’s your word that says in Psalm 91, those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. For we know that even in your shadow, we’re safe.

Because God, you are our refuge and strength and surely, you’ll deliver us from the noose of the hunter and this deadly plague called Covid-19. Surely, you can cover us because your faithfulness is our shield and protection. And we shall not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrows that flies by day, nor the virus that stalks us in darkness and not even the disease that strikes at midday. Though thousands have died, no farther harm shall come near us or our families.

We shall not lack from the limited resources of man because if we stay under your hand, you’ll provide all. God, I pray covering, protection and provision for every first responder and essential employee who must work without the proper safety equipment. God, block every entry point that sickness shall not touch them or their family. I pray, through this pandemic that the world will see your power and believe. I pray we will stop taking your grace for granted.

And I still pray, like before, that no man or woman will succumb to sin, fall into depression, commit suicide, be bound by fear, hunger, thirst, become homeless nor sick. I pray we’ll trust God, seek God, hear God, feel God, taste God, trust God, pray to God, tithe to God and devote ourselves to God. For I declare that when we trust Him with all of us, He’ll be a keeper of His promises. Today God, we submit ourselves to you because we can’t survive this on our own. We’re powerless without you. Have your way, this we pray.

Amen.

This I pray in Jesus name (1)

Faith over Fear

The other night, Tuesday to be exact, I did a short teaching on “how to walk in obedience when it’s embarrassing, uncomfortable and seems to never end.”

I’m posting a link to that video below for someone who may be dealing with this very issue. Listen, I don’t have all the answers but what I do know is this …

Faith — numerator
——
Fear — denominator

With fear as the denominator and FAITH as the numerator … Faith can pull from fear but fear can’t pull from faith.

And the bigger my faith, the smaller my fear.

I pray this blesses you! Join me on next Tuesday, 7 PM CST.
