We give you thanks and praise for you have delivered us from captivity, that we may sing praises to you, that our mouths may be filled with laughter. People see what you have done and say among themselves “the LORD has done great things for them” (Ps.126:2).
May some who are enemies be like Rahab LORD and turn from their wicked ways, when they hear of your might and power in our lives.
May they show us favour and accept your Right Hand and be set free, washed and cleansed by the blood of Jesus.
We are more than conquerors!
We give you thanks and praise! We shout for joy because “the LORD has done great things for us and we are glad” (Ps. 126:3).
When we sowed in tears there were times when we thought that we would never overcome.
But how dare we, for we serve a God who is oh so faithful, one who never changes. He is the same yesterday today and forever more.
You said in your word “those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.”(Ps 125:1).
We trust you LORD!
You are our Protector, always surrounding us as the mountains surround Jerusalem.
Father you decreed that “the sceptre of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous” (Ps.125:3).
You have preserved us from evil, from the decrees of the powers of darkness by your mighty power.
Happiness is indeed knowing that God brings peace. Receive God’s Peace like a River in and through you!
I pray for God’s peace to flow in a never ending manner like a river that forms tributaries into the recesses of your soul (mind, intellect and emotions) so that you would experience a perpetual Sabbath rest of the LORD.
In this place, you will receive revelation from the LORD directly and through His Word so that out of you shall flow rivers of living waters quenching the spiritual thirst of dry souls and hearts making a people ready for the coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
There is no peace like God’s peace. Attempts at world peace without God as the source is just a charade and superficial for sooner or later confusion and chaos sets in. This is why Jesus explicitly distinguished his peace from that of the world when he said such comforting words
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27KJV)
As a believer in Christ you have His mind which means your mind or thoughts are focused on God. You therefore have access to God’s peace (Is.26:3) which is perfect.
God speaks His peace in every situation of your life, however He requires that you do not “again turn to folly” (Ps 85:8).
To live a life in God’s perpetual peace, He wants you to know that you need to be determined to overcome anxiety. How? Prayer to God concerning all things (Phil 4:6), while praying be thankful of what you have already received from Him.
If you can’t think of anything in a moment how about your life? Your caring child, spouse,family or your job ? Also trust Him once you have prayed. It is only after you have done this that
“…the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”(Phil 4:7)
God of Peace be with you!
POEM: RECEIVE THE MASTER’S PEACE
Be anxious for nought and pray for what you ought. God’s peace will unfold as a treat, if a slave to worry you are not. Peace like a barging river, shall knock down fortes of deceit in your heart to cause the enemy to retreat. Peace like a fighter plane shall land on the combat fields of your soul to dethrone the Prince of this World, end the cycle of disorder to commence divine order. A peace foreign to this world in chaos because it knows not it’s Master and his ethos.
Who is it’s Master? He is the Prince of Peace who saith to his own “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you”. On a mount he sat and taught “blessed are the peacemakers they shall be called children of God” So be blessed, not stressed. Do not retaliate but demonstrate his love to haters. Trade anger with prayer for users and live to unite dividers. With your mates create colonies in a bond of peace and be the harmonies to iron out melodious creases. Blessed vessel of peace, wrestle for the increase of God’s government and peace to have no end.
(Isaiah 9:6-7, Phil 4:6-7 Matt.5:43-48, John 14:27)
Knowing him is the greatest thing that happened to us, his Saints we will always be. When Christ our Saviour was born, the light in our lives, God planned to turn on. No more slaves to sin are we, but now among the chosen few. God in Christ is faithful it is true, always ready for men to renew.
As friends of Christ his mysteries to us he imparts, not only for us to flourish and grow fat, but that we will with zeal, the gospel to impart. To seal many in Christ and soften hardened hearts.
Scriptural Inspiration: John 14:1-5, John 14:11-14, Isaiah 9:6, John 15:-14-16
“1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not…” (John 14:1-5 KJV)
6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6 KJV)
“11He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 14:11-14 KJV)
“Then he [Jesus] called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. Then he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.” (Luke 9:1-2)
“And he [Jesus] said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:18-19)
Christ has already paid the ultimate price! We are more than conquerors through him who loves us (Romans 8:37). There is no need to despair, but to trust him!
As a believer in Christ, God says to you as He said to Israel “I have loved you with an everlasting love and with loving kindness I have drawn you to me” (Jer 31:3).
Are you going through anything now? Sometimes our afflictions seem endless, but as God spoke through the prophet Isaiah to comfort Jerusalem, his precious city, so too I bring this word of comfort to you, His precious one “your
“…warfare is accomplished,..iniquity is pardoned…Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: and the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see [it] together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken [it].” (Isaiah 40:2,4,5 KJV).
Yes, the afflictions of a believer are only temporarily and God intends for His glory to be revealed in our lives, so indeed if we suffer there is an ultimate purpose for the glory of God.
When Jesus said on the CROSS “it is finished” (John 19:30) that is exactly what he meant! When he died for our sins and rose again the third day, our warfare was declared over.
We only need to take hold of this truth and keep it at the forefront of our minds. We need not fret as long as we live in obedience to God’s Word.
This is because God will always thwart the plans of the enemy, counteract the will of Satan and work all things out for our GOOD! (Psalm 33:10-12/Romans 8:28) To God be the glory great things He has done!!
Father send your Spirit to chase away every demonic spirit in the land. Send your power to overcome the forces of iniquity & darkness among your people.
Intervene LORD in this nation to turn the hearts of the father to the children and the hearts of the children to the father.
Come and flood this land with your Spirit! Let rivers of truth immerse your people, those you have created; redeemed and marked for redemption.
Arise Father and show your strong arm against leviathan the enemy of our souls.
March forth like the man of war that you are, Yahweh Gibbor and show your strength, O Mighty God of the Armies of Heaven, release your fury upon our enemy, break his neck, stamp on his head and release the captives from the north, south, east and west!
Demand release of those in captivity, reject the sounding trumpet calling them to join Gog and Magog, the enemy in disguise as their deliverer.
Open our eyes, mighty one of Israel! Shut the mouth of our aggressors! Destroy the weapons of destruction! Arm your people with strength, that they may match on in victory.
We are your people, tillers of your land, harvesters of souls; missionaries for your cause, light-bearers unrelenting, Ambassadors of Christ yielding and tireless to bring multitudes into your tabernacle of Praise, glorious to behold.
Not by our might we serve, but by your Spirit LORD…breath on us!
Isaiah 54:17 But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD; their vindication will come from me. I, the LORD, have spoken!
