The Balance of Our Faith


Isaiah 30:21

When it comes to the right perspective concerning ourselves, we are neither to think more highly of ourselves than we ought and at the same time think less of ourselves, as well.  Both will end in preventing the Lord to work in our lives according to His perfect Will.
Romans 12:3, Romans 8:1

The right perspective is to know ourselves as God knows us in Christ.  We are a process in the making which the Lord is committed to complete.
Philippians 1: 6

Though we begin our journey on the low plains of life, by following Christ we will develop wings of confidence and soar where He abides in heavenly places.
Isaiah 40:30-31, Ephesians 1:3-6

” We become a new creature in Christ Jesus.”

This confidence is not self-confidence but rather the Holy Spirit’s confidence of God’s faithfulness to do what is impossible for us to do.  Philippians 4:13

When we look to ourselves we remain grounded.  But the minute we focus on the Author and Finisher of our faith we rise above our circumstances, above the clouds of despair where the SON remains fixed and shining.
Hebrews 12: 1-2, Revelation 22:16, 2 Peter 1:19

Sweet Surrender


“And when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”
John 12:32

I read the sixth chapter of R A Torrey’s The Power of Prayer –Praying in the Name of Jesus Christ.
And have come back to my child like faith in that it is only in Jesus Christ I can pray -Making claim to His promises because He is the Son of the living God and has been given all the inheritance which He dispenses as our provision. I can now pray knowing He has secured my salvation and everything I need is released from Heaven from the Father’s throne because my Savior, Jesus Christ, purchased me and I belong to Him. I can ask anything in His Name and receive it based on His great love and affection not my own.

Lord, show me what I can do for you, be lifted up above myself and all circumstances, afflictions, worries, be exalted, manifested in my life as I remain hidden and you exposed- in all your glory so as to draw men and women and children to yourself.

“Lord, I surrender my mind , body, soul and spirit – releasing all into your loving hands & Grace, allowing You to do according to your perfect will. I trust in You, in only You do I put my trust.” DF

I was overwhelmed with doom as I remembered my sins and failures, then I was reminded of God’s great mercy and steadfast love which is not temporary but everlasting. Psalm 40

He will empower me to do His will. If He allows my body to die, but He is glorified in the process, then I can cross heaven’s threshold with joy in my heart. Sweet Surrender equals Sweet Peace forevermore.

“Into your hands, I commit my body, mind, speech and works to do according to your perfect will because I love you, Lord.” DF

The Trumpet Call to Prayer


The Trumpet Call to Prayer
Zechariah 4:6

Our country founded upon the promise of liberty through faith in God and His Son, Jesus Christ has approached a turning point as a result of prayer. When Vice President Pence quoted this scripture in his recent speech, referencing the need for prayer, he left out one important phrase, “turn from their wicked ways”.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

King David who reigned over Israel asked God to search his heart to reveal any wicked ways. He knew his prosperity and hope for himself and God’s people was dependent on faith in a righteous God who seeks obedience to His commandments. He also believed in the compassionate God who loves and desires to forgive and also to heal. Psalm 139:23-24

First, let us ( those in Christ Jesus ) pray for ourselves to be once again revived by God’s Holy Spirit, confessing our sins while abstaining from the ways of this world. Then we will know how to pray for revival in this land. True worship and prayer is directed to God the Father, through God the Son, Jesus Christ (His atoning blood) by God the Holy Spirit’s guidance based on the Word of God. John 4:23

Second, Let us pray for revival to come into the White House among the leaders of our nation, to bring about conviction and conversion by God’s Holy Spirit; praying for the infilling and anointing of God’s Holy Spirit; His Presence fill the White House and all branches of our government. 1 Timothy 2:1-2

Thirdly, Let us pray the conviction and conversion of God’s Holy Spirit take place in our educational institutions among the leaders , teachers and then the students across our land.
Let us not cease from praying until the Coming of the Lord. James 5: 7-8,16

Fourthly, let us pray for our families and friends and especially those who do not know Jesus as Lord and Savior as we abstain from the world without compromise and walk in the light. 1 John 1:7, 2 Peter 3:9, James 1:27

There are spiritual forces in high places working against the restoration and revival of God’s righteous influence, while perverting justice and promoting lawlessness. Please pray Psalm 35 for our present United State’s administration. It will not be through politics, knowledge or by any secular force the Body of Christ and our nation will be restored back to God, except through prayer. The biblical resources I have noted will teach you why and how to pray. Ephesians 6:12,

Ask for the help of the Holy Spirit to guide you in prayer.
There is no greater work to do then to pray so the Lord will work to bring down the evil spiritual forces which have invaded our lives, homes and our land. Romans 8:26

Please commit with me in consistent prayer.This is the Trump Card that brings about God’s victory every time.

God has is answering our prayers, with His trumpet, the call to prayer has come. He is rebuilding the wall of protection, while exposing the enemy through prayer. Our weapons of warfare are not carnal but are spiritual bringing down strongholds and wickedness in high places; everything that works against God’s Truth and righteousness.

2 Corinthians 10:4, Isaiah 54:17

God has begun His restoration process through prayer. It will not be done by any might or power but only through His Holy Spirit in response to our ( those called by His Name) prayer. Don’t let the enemy distract you from this important task.
The Lord, Himself will route out the enemy within, and abroad when we call upon Him in prayer. Deuteronomy 31:8

Blessed be the Name of the Lord Who has sent His Son, Jesus Christ and defeated the enemy forevermore! Colossians 1:13-14, Hebrews 2: 14-15

Please read Nehemiah 1-6 and Psalm 35 with meditation and prayer

“Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, join us there. Our God will fight for us!” Nehemiah 4:20

Have you heard God’s call to join the spiritual battle through prayer?
