“THE WONDERMENTS OF GOD’S LOVE FOR US” 31-1-17


“God’s immense love for us is described in (Matthew 15:17-19 GNT) “Don’t you understand?  Anything that goes into your mouth goes into your stomach and then on out of your body.   But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these are the things that make you ritually unclean.  For from your heart come the evil ideas which lead you to kill, commit adultery, and do other immoral things; to rob, lie, and slander others.”
This statement from Jesus declares to us that a loveless heart will not care about anything but for themselves.  God is love, and because man was lost in his sins, He sent His Son Jesus to bring His love into the world, and to show His love emptied out at the cross of Calvary, where Jesus paid the ultimate price of His life, for us to wash away our sins by His blood as the perfect sacrifice of love to end the curse of sin and death, and our separation from God here on earth and for eternity through Jesus’ obedience to do His Father’s will, and on the third day He was resurrected from the dead and raised to life again, and in Him we too are raised from the dead sin brings into our lives, when we acknowledge our sins and repent in Jesus’ name, and the Father forgives us for them all.  We need to be accountable for our words always, for they can uplift or down tread, if we have no love in our hearts.  The loveless person doesn’t care, but God cares and He does provide a way out for us every time when the Holy Spirit brings to our attention the past and present sins of our loveless nature, which can all be eradicated by one simple prayer of thanks to the Father for His abundant love of Jesus to live and dwell in us forevermore if you choose:
*”Lord Jesus I thank you for dying on the cross at Calvary for all my sins.  I have not been loving to others and taken for granted the fact that, “God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”  I am truly sorry for not loving others as you have told us to do through obeying your Ten Commandments, and have seen the affects it has presented in my life, of separating me from the people who do love and care for me.  Help me Jesus to be clean from my sins, by washing me in your loving blood shed for me on the cross at Calvary, and bring a new spirit of love to my heart through the Holy Spirit, that I may see the wonderments of God’s love for me that I can love again.
I declare this in Jesus’ name, that I am loved and forgiven, and in Jesus’ name I can love and forgive all the others whom I have shown a disregard for, especially my family.  Amen!  So be it Lord Jesus to do it, and I draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole lots.”

“THE UNCEASING LOVE OF GOD THE FATHER THROUGH JESUS’ GREAT SACRIFICE FOR HIM TO RETAIN US BACK TO OUR CREATOR WITH UNISON AND DIGNITY THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT’S CONDITIONING WAYS OF PROVING US TO BE HEALED AND MADE WHOLE FROM THE LIFE’S CHOICES WHICH HAVE DISEMBARKED US FROM HIS WAYS OF LIFE FOR US-TO BE RESTORED AND FULLY IMPACTED BACK INTO OUR LIVES TO FOLLOW JESUS WHO IS “THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE” (John 14:6 NKJV)

26-1-17

“When Jesus walked the earth over two thousand years ago, He was empowered by the Holy Spirit to bring forth the Good news that He was fulfilling God’s promise of deliverance in (Isaiah 61:1-3 GNT) “The Sovereign Lord has filled me with His Spirit.  He has chosen Me and sent Me to bring good news to the poor, to heal the broken-hearted, to announce release to captives and freedom to those in prison.  He has sent Me to proclaim that the time has come when the Lord will save His people and defeat their enemies.  He has sent Me to comfort all who mourn, to give to those in Zion joy and gladness instead of grief, a song of praise instead of sorrow.  They will be like trees that the Lord Himself has planted.  They will all do what is right, and God will be praised for what He has done.”
We can all remember the many times when we have gone astray from the way, the truth, and the life chosen for us to walk in, when we rejected and went our own way.  But God is calling us back to His original plan, no matter what we’ve done, God loves us and sent His Son Jesus to show us the way back to the Father’s plans for our destiny, leaving behind the baggage of excuses for our failures unto Jesus, who came to set us free from the bondages of guilt and shame and the excuses for them all, for Jesus said in (John 14:6 NKJV) “I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
So without further ado, let’s hand all our past baggage of excuses over to Jesus in this simple prayer of faith, which will restore us and bring us back to the Father’s path of life in Jesus’ name, restored, and set free to progress forward:
*”Lord Jesus, you know my life’s ambitions and failures, and excuses for them.  I know that this baggage cannot hinder me further, for I lay it all at your feet Jesus, and declare out loud to you, I let go, and I let God!
I am truly sorry for the paths which led me away from your way, your truth, and your life for me, and I now surrender myself and all that I have to you Jesus.  Take control of my life, and make me the kind of person you always wanted me to be, now and for ever I am yours.  Wash me with the blood you shed for me at Calvary on the cross, to make me whiter than snow, and I thank you to restore in me a right spirit of truth through the Holy Spirit, to enable me to know your will at all times, in the decision making according to your perfect will and destiny for my life, to honour and obey your Commandments at all times for the common good of myself and others, Amen!
I now draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole matter, Amen!  So be it Lord Jesus and I let go, and I let God, for God is, and God will provide for me always ahead of time, for He is never too late in fulfilling His promises to me, Amen!

“THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE LORD IN ONE’S LIFE ARE IMMEASURABLE & FAR OUTREACHING!” 24-1-17


“We can read all about it in the Bible, how God’s transition from the bad life into the good He has install for us as (Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV) states for us His affirmative promise that, “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”  There you have it!  What possible explanation could you answer to that?  Other than, God is love, therefore He loves me no matter what I’ve done in the past, He has supplied the answer to all my problems, and that is the shedding of His perfect Son Jesus’ blood on the cross at Calvary, as an atonement for what I have done in His sacrifice of giving up His life for me by saying, “Forgive them, Father!  They don’t know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34 GNT).
I am here to tell you, that no matter what you have done in the past, God can forgive you and replenish you to be a new person free of it all in one sentence, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).  The only acknowledgement we need is this – to realise our mistakes, and to hand them over to Jesus as in this simple prayer of repentance and recognition that He is our Saviour now and for ever, and He will transform you from the past as is written in (Psalm 103:11-12 GNT) “As high as the sky is above the earth, so great is His love for those who honour Him.  As far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our sins from us.” ---
*”Lord Jesus I now understand that I have done wrong to you and to myself.  Help me by your grace to receive your forgiveness of myself for all the bad things I have done to myself and to others, for I am sorry to have wasted myself on wrong thinking there would not be a price for them.  But I know now that you have forgiven me on the cross at Calvary, and so I now repent of them all and hand them all over to you, to now be washed by your precious blood Jesus whiter than snow, and that the Holy Spirit guide me into your ways of life transitioned for your good works for me in keeping myself unto you alone Jesus, for your perfect will is what I choose now and for ever, Amen!  So be it Lord Jesus to do it, for God is and God will provide for me, and I draw the bloodline of Jesus over all the past lots of my life, free now to walk upright in His precious love for me, Amen!  I let go and I let God!”

“FUNDAMENTAL TRUTHS” 20-1-17


“It is written according to (Luke 18:2-8 GNT) “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected people.  And there was a widow in that same town who kept coming to him and pleading for her rights, saying, “Help me against my opponent!”  For a long time the judge refused to act, but at last he said to himself, “Even though I don’t fear God or respect people, yet because of all the trouble this widow is giving me, I will see to it that she gets her rights.  If I don’t, she will keep on coming and finally wear me out!”  And the Lord continued, “Listen to what that corrupt judge said, “Now will God not judge in favour of His own people who cry to Him day and night for help?  Will He be slow to help them?  I tell you, He will judge in their favour and do it quickly.”  What does this all say to us about our requests for God’s favour when we ask in prayer for His help and recognition in our times of need?  Well, you can be sure that God hears our prayers always and acts accordingly to bring our justice and our rights to come to pass simply and precisely when it’s needed and not a moment too soon or too late.  I can vouch for this in my life, for just yesterday, I was given God’s justice in a moment I thought would never come.  His ways are far so superior to ours.  Remember He is our Maker, and He knows far more than we could ever imagine about ourselves, or others.  The situation is this, that we must trust and obey Him at all times, in the good times and in the bad when it seems we have not been heard by Him for any of our requests to be fulfilled.
I am here to tell you that God Almighty is faithful through and through, for He will always grant us favour and blessings, if we choose to obey Him in our daily lives, by not grumbling and complaining about certain matters that have not come to pass as we thought they should have in our timing.  This is the fundamental truth, that to complain will hinder our progress, and as God is faithful, He will grant us that which we are complaining of, for example: if we have been waiting for a long time- that’s what you’ll get- more of the same.  The only way to end the frustration of waiting in those times would be to, firstly repent of the complaining about the matter in general, and to give it all over to God by “letting go and letting God” on the situation at hand.  A short prayer of faithfulness is all that God requires of us, and surely He will respond at the perfect time we could never foresee, simply and promptly—

*”Lord Jesus I humbly repent of all the times I have grumbled and complained in my justification for my rights to be served me by you.  I repent of it all now, and recognise my errors.  Help me by your grace Lord Jesus to be patient in the waiting for you to act quickly when you see it of an advantage for me, by washing me clean now from all my sins which have hindered my progress in matters, with your precious blood you shed at Calvary on that cross for my redemption and pardon from my sins to date, that I might find favour in your sight, and give you praise in all my situations, that you will carry me to the finish and completion of every prayer request I have asked for in Jesus’ name, Amen!  And may the Holy Spirit endow me with your grace of patience and confidence when I say, I let go and I let God in this situation.

Help me Lord Jesus to remember all that you have already done for me, and never return to worrying and complaining again, with your precious bloodline drawn over the whole lots now and forever, Amen!”

“THE UNFORGETTABLE RANSOM OF THE LORD JESUS FOR US ALL WHO CHOOSE TO BELIEVE THAT--GOD IS AND GOD WILL PROVIDE!!!"


7-1-17
“Ransom means: release from captivity by payment; price paid for release.
We can choose either to ignore the sacrifice Jesus paid for our sins as He hung on that cross at Calvary, or we accept the sacrifice He made in our place for our sins, in full payment for our release from the death of sin brings, to not perish but to have everlasting life with Him in all His provisions for us.  We must be grateful and accept Him to provide for our every need, for He is our ransom for all our debts paid in full, that the enemy Satan has no legal right to us once we repent of all our sins to Jesus, who is our Saviour and Redeemer from the curse of sin and death brings.
We can either choose to dwell in our past hang-ups on life, our mistakes, our bad choices, and our regrets, or choose to back down on them all, and receive the glorious sacrifice Jesus paid in full from our release from the captivity of the past, to move into the future He has already prepared and planned for us for our good, as it is written in (Ephesians 2:10 GNT) “God has made us what we are, and in our union with Christ Jesus He has created us for a life of good deeds, which He has already prepared for us to do.”
If we keep looking back, we can miss out on the future God has prepared for us for our good for, “The thief’s purpose is to steal, and kill and destroy.  My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” (John 10:10 ELT).  Clearly we can see that it is our free will choice, “to forget what is behind me and do my best to reach what is ahead.”  (Philippians 3:13 GNT).  This is the good news that Jesus died for us to have a rich and satisfying life ahead, and not turning back ever to the past which is gone forever, and the new awaits us in the future by saying, “God is and God will provide!”
Here is a short prayer to eradicate anything from the past which tries to turn us back to remember what we did to upset us from claiming what is rightfully ours—‘The unforgettable ransom of the Lord Jesus for us all who choose to believe that God is and God will provide!!!” –
*”Lord Jesus, how great is your sacrifice on the cross at Calvary for me, that by your blood shed I have been set free from the bondages of sin and death in my life’s past, to receive your salvation and redemption.
I am truly sorry for all my past sins--in the past for good, and I repent of pondering in the past and having trouble at times in moving forward for the future you have ransomed for me, to be bright and filled with the joy of the Lord to be my strength, and to forget what is behind me and do my best to reach what is ahead, with “God is and God will provide!”
I surrender all my hopes and desires to you Lord Jesus, that I might live for you now and for always in the beautiful provision you died on the cross at Calvary, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” according to (John 3:16), for which I claim now and for always, God is and God will provide!  Amen!  I thank you Lord Jesus to wash me with your precious blood, and to send the Holy Spirit to comfort and guide me through all the trials of life, never to turn back to the past, but “I run straight towards the goal” according to your Word Jesus in (Philippians 3:14 GNT), for I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, therefore I believe and trust that, God is and God will provide!  Amen, and I draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole lots!”

“INFLUENTIAL DISORDER” 31-12-16


“The Bible warns us not to worship anything other than the Lord God Almighty, who is, and always will be sovereign over His creation – us!  I am a true believer of facts, for yesterday whilst doing a chore in preparation for the coming new year festivities, I was cramped in my right hand, unable to grasp a cooking utensil to finish decorating a cake for the, New Year’s  family dinner.  I was so debilitated in my right hand, that I prayed to God for the knowledge of what to do, and as always the Holy Spirit was forthcoming in giving me the word of knowledge that would heal my hand, enabling my continuance to complete the task at hand, which by the grace of God I was healed and set free to do all things through Christ who strengthens me according to, (Philippians 4:13), which freed me of the “influential disorder.”  This disorder, deals with the running of our lives in a fashion other than God’s will for us, for it is written in (Ephesians 2:10 NKJV) “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
It is impossible to please God with “influential disorder” on board in one’s household, for it is written in (Matthew 12:25, 29 GNT) "Jesus knew what they were thinking, so He said to them, “Any country that divides itself into groups which fight each other will not last very long.  And any town or family that divides itself into groups which fight each other will fall apart.” Satan is the divider here, and brings “influential disorder” into place to break up families, with no hope of reconciliation and peace in the dwelling in harmony together under the same roof – house that is!  Jesus goes further in instructing how to end the “influential disorder” from reaping its disorder and dis-harmony in families for, “No one can break into a strong man’s house and take away his belongings unless he first ties up the strong man; then he can plunder his house.”  Therefore let’s get rid of the strong man of influential disorder, and bring back God’s order in re-instating back into that household what was plundered by the Devil through the division reaped when families fight and disagree of each other’s comments and refuse to take advantage of the blessings of God, which He instigated for families to serve one another in unconditional love, and peace, and harmony together, taking heed of any advice given as good advice, and not contrary to their good will for each other.  The Holy Spirit is the stabilising force here to replace the dividing influential disorder, with harmony and an attentive heart to hear each other out within the family, and to put into practice the good, well-meaning advice given in times of our needs through adhering to comments expressed by our caring family members, showing our interest in them as worthwhile and valid in our lives.  Here is a prayer to bring God’s order back, that we might say as Joshua affirmed, (Joshua 24:15 NKJV) “But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord,” as follows:
*”Lord Jesus, I truly am sorry for all the division within my family and household, which has allowed for the access to Satan to plunder what’s rightfully as ours in your kingdom come living in peace and harmony together in my household.  I can see how Satan has gained access to try to put his influential disorder into play one against the other within our family, to divide, and steal, and destroy everything God has blessed us with according to, (John 10:10 NLT) “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy.  My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”  This I claim in Jesus’ name for my household of (name your residential address), and for me and my family members (names), to reap the riches of God’s purpose, by now binding up in the mighty name of Jesus, the strong man of influential disorder from within (your residential address), and in the name of Jesus for the strong man of influential disorder to be loosed from within (your residential address), to leave it now, and go to wherever Jesus has allotted for it.  I now ask you Jesus to wash (residential address) with your precious blood, and may the Holy Spirit come into (residential address) and fill now those areas made void, with the perfection of your kingdom, to rule in God’s order, that we might reap the “rich and satisfying life” God has purposed for us all, me, (family members names), in Jesus’ name I trust to bring about.  So be it Lord Jesus to do it, for God is and God will provide, and I draw the precious bloodline of Jesus over the whole lots, Amen!”

"THE CHRISTMAS THAT EVERYBODY FORGOT" 17-12-16


“Christmas is the remembrance of God’s love for all of humanity, “For God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him may not die but have eternal life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to be its judge, but to be its Saviour.” (John 3:16-17 GNT).  This is the real Christmas celebration, for what God did through Jesus’ birth to His resurrection from the death He endured for our sins on the cross at Calvary, and then the resurrection He won for us from the death sin brings, to accept the eternal life He bought with His precious blood shed at Calvary on the cross of redemption from all our sins past and present to whom we can freely hand over in a repentance prayer, something like this to Jesus who is our Saviour and Redeemer from the lost, to be found and saved for His glory – the Father’s in all that we do and say afterwards to be a reminder of why Jesus was born, as we celebrate the commemoration of His birth on the 25th of December, in recognition of His sacrifice to bring us into the knowledge of God all powerful, all knowing, and our sins paid in full to be reclaimed back to our rightful place, to live our life in the best of our abilities to conquer evil with Jesus who is the light of the world, and empowers us in His strength to do all things through Him, that could never be achieved on our own:

*”Lord Jesus the world has forgotten what Christmas truly means and its origin from your being born of a virgin, dying on the cross at Calvary, and then on the third day rising from the dead as the Scriptures foretold of your coming to this day in my life, I believe that you are the Son of God, and that you died on the cross at Calvary for my sins past and present, to redeem me from the curse of sin and death into your great salvation of my soul and spirit for your service of love in my life, and the forgiveness of others who have wronged me, for I am a sinner needing you Jesus for my Saviour, as I repent of all my sins from the time I was born to this present day which have interrupted your plan for my life to do your will, and not as the world would suggest, being worldly, committed to a life of self-indulgence rather than to remember you Jesus, and what you suffered to bring my justice of all that I am belongs to you, and all that I have belongs to you now and for always, Amen!”

BLAMING OTHERS FOR OUR PROBLEMS

The problem with blaming others for our problems, is against God’s will for us, for each one of us has a free will, and choosing is a gift from God to be used wisely, for the Bible tells us in, (Galatians 5:6 NLT) “For we are each responsible for our own conduct.”  This evaluates all our decision making, as our own responsibility, and not blaming others for them when things appear wrong rather than for good outcomes to eventuate.

(John 10:10 NLT) explains the problem clearly, “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy.  My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”  The thief here is, the devil, and he, “walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8 NKJV).  We are told in (James 4:5 NKJV) to, “Resist the devil and he will flee.”  How do we do this?  By never blaming others for our actions or conduct, or any problems we may be experiencing, through the choices we have made, even if we took the advice given us as a result.  If we do take responsibility for our own lives in this way, you can be sure that regrets will come in at some point, but we must not give into them, and surely the devil will flee.  By doing this, and casting the problem onto the Lord, you will find that what Satan meant for your harm, God will turn it around for your good.
Here is a short prayer if you have found out that the choices you have made could be wrong choices as it seems, to turn the whole matter over to the Lord, and He will do as He says in (John 10:10 NLT) “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy.  My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” –
”Lord Jesus, I am truly sorry for having blamed others for my choices in not turning out as I had hoped they would.  I have blamed others for giving me wrong advice for which I now have regrets for pursuing in the choices from their advising me.  I am truly sorry Lord Jesus for allowing myself to be captured by negative thoughts, with the words spoken to those I have blamed with abuse, and not taken responsibility for my own conduct in making the choices which have led me to believe, could be the wrong ones for my good.  I am sorry Lord Jesus, and I repent in dust and ashes for all my comments about those who have given me advice which I see now, that I could have taken them or left them.  I am truly sorry for blaming others for my hardships, and sinning against you, “For we are each responsible for our own conduct” according to your Word in (Galatians 5:6 NLT), and I ask for your forgiveness in this matter Lord Jesus, and to wash me clean of all my sins in this regard.
Lord Jesus, help me to believe that what Satan has intended for my harm, you will turn around for my good.  Help me to see the errors of my past ways, never to fall into the same trap again of regret and blaming others, but to learn to accept my choices either good or bad, that I may be responsible and take charge of my life to learn from the bad choices, so as to make good choices in the future, by sending the Holy Spirit now to guide me in all my ways, for the honour and the glory of your name Father God through Jesus your beloved Son whom is and always is my Lord and Saviour and Redeemer from all my sins, Amen!  So be it Lord Jesus to do it, for God is and God will provide!  And I draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole lots., Amen!”

CORRECTIVE LENS

Corrective lens, define our eyes to see perfectly the object in full view, without distortion.  The Bible defines this in (Luke 11:33-36 GNT) “No one lights a lamp and then hides it or puts it under a bowl; instead, it is put on a lampstand, so that people may see the light as they come in.  Your eyes are like a lamp for the body.  When your eyes are sound, your whole body is full of light; but when your eyes are no good your whole body will be in darkness.  Make certain, then, that the light in you is not darkness.  If your whole body is full of light, with no part of it in darkness, it will be bright all over, as when a lamp shines on you with its brightness.”  These are the words that explain our vision of good from evil, but Jesus warned that we should, “Judge not, that you be not judged.  For with what judgement you judge, you will be judged, and with the same measure you use, it will be measured back to you.” (Matthew 7:1-2 NKJV), which is evil.

Default sight causes vision impairment to the things that are really important in our lives, by having a distorted view of matters which could rob us of the true value of life in a purposeful living environment for the better.  Life is what you make it – good for yourself – or a state of pitifulness (feeling no pity—sympathy or sorrow for others’ suffering; a state of regret; hard-hearted).  We can either move on from difficult situations, or dwell on them with regrets of certain actions affecting our lives.  The distorted view would be to think of change as a bad choice, but on the contrary, we must make the most of a bad choice to be a good outcome in the end, for ourselves and others we are responsible for.  Nothing can change us, other than praying to Jesus to change our attitude from a negative perspective into a positive one of hope filled perspectives of advancement for the common good of all involved.  (Matthew 10:38 NKJV) details this as Jesus taught His disciples to pass on His teaching, “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.”  This tells us to take up our cross daily, dying to self, and doing what is necessary, and not whether we feel like doing it or not.  Circumstances change all the time, but as long as we keep an open-minded approach that anything is possible, and not be dis-heartened at the thought of giving up what is familiar to us, we can excel to great heights of success and honour in following in Jesus’ steps as He obeyed His Father in heaven, by dying on the cross at Calvary, then rising from the dead on the third day, becoming our Saviour and Mediator, “He is God’s “Yes”; for it is He who is the “Yes” to all of God’s promises.  This is why through Jesus Christ our “Amen” is said to the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:20 GNT).

Let’s take Father God’s Word who is Jesus, and petition our request to Him as we are told to do in (Philippians 4:6-7 GNT) “Don’t worry for anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking Him with a thankful heart.  And God’s peace which is far beyond human understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus.”—

”Lord Jesus, I am deeply sorry for any vision impairments in my life which have taken me away from your will, in seeking my pleasures and not considering the suffering of others. I have allowed a hard-hearted approach of negative thoughts, words, and deeds, criticizing, gossiping, complaining, resentment, and bitterness fill me up with regrets, instead of a positive attitude to all things being good from you, for you allowing the changes to take effect in my life as not being good choices for me.  I am truly sorry for all my sins on this account, whereby I lost my vision of the good aspects of my life, for the negative attitude in my heart, allowing for a default sight to take place of the corrective lens for the future good you have already prepared and planned for my good and not to harm me, as (Jeremiah 29:11-12 NKJV) declares over my life, “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Then you will call upon me and go and pray to me, and I will listen to you.”

This then is my petition to you Lord Jesus, to ask for your forgiveness for my default vision to be effectively changed by your corrective lens, to see with open-mindedness your enablement for my future progress in the good things you already have in store for me with thanksgiving and praise, Amen!”

(ISAIAH 35 NLT) “HOPE FOR RESTORATION” 12-10-16

1. “Even the wilderness and desert will be glad in those days.
The wasteland will rejoice and blossom with spring crocuses.
2.  Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers and singing and joy!
The deserts will become as green as the mountains of Lebanon, as lovely as Mount Carmel or the Plain of Sharon.  There the Lord will display His glory, the splendour of our God.
3.  With this news, strengthen those who have tired hands, and encourage those who have weak knees.
4. Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies.  He is coming to save you.”
5. And when He comes, He will open the eyes of the blind and unplug the ears of the deaf.
6. The lame will leap like a deer, and those who cannot speak will sing for joy!
Springs will gush forth in the wilderness, and streams will water the wasteland.
7. The parched ground will become a pool, and springs of water will satisfy the thirsty land.  Marsh grass and reeds and rushes will flourish where desert jackals once lived.
8. And a great road will go through that once deserted land.  It will be named the Highway of Holiness.  Evil-minded people will never travel on it.  It will be only for those who walk in God’s ways; fools will never walk there.
9. Lions will not lurk along its course, nor any other ferocious beasts.  There will be no other dangers.  Only the redeemed will walk on it.
10. Those who have been ransomed by the Lord will return.  They will enter Jerusalem singing, crowned with everlasting joy.  Sorrow and mourning will disappear, and they will be filled with joy and gladness.”
“For all who have suffered at the hands of abusers and mockers, you will receive the rewards spoken of in (Isaiah 35) above, as your favour from God for never giving up, and letting go and letting God!”
