But they deliberately overlook the fact that long ago by God’s word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. 2 Peter 3:5
The supernatural was designed to be experienced first and then understood. The Bible teaches that: “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” (Heb. 11:3). In the natural, first we have an experience we perceive through our five senses, then we reason it, and finally we believe it. But in God, when you believe, you are ready to have the experience; and then you understand. That is because the supernatural must first be experienced. Many have tried to submit the supernatural to the judgment of reason. They think that if they don’t understand something, it is not real and does not exist, but this is not true. If it was understood by human logic, it would stop being supernatural. Today I encourage you to have a supernatural encounter with God. He is not a theory or a force, but a person. The Holy Spirit has emotions, a mind and a will, and He wants to lead us to a relationship with our heavenly Father!
Be willing to experience the love and the presence of God, not just today, but every day. Prepare yourself for a supernatural encounter. Are you ready to receive your miracle?
Pray with me
Lord Jesus, I acknowledge that I have more than enough power through You to do things that are absurd for man. Today I stop reasoning as to how my miracle will come, because I will never understand how You do things that humans call “impossible”. Miracles do not have to be understood, they just need to be received. So although my brain does not reach to understand, today I open my heart, and I simply believe You! This is the day of my miracle! Amen.
For He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters.
He spread out the earth upon the waters. His loving devotion endures forever.
By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, love your neighbor as yourself” Luke 10:27
There is no relationship without an open heart. Every good relationship comes from an open heart, whether it be with God or with other people. When the heart is closed, something mechanical interferes with the right way to behave. If we wish to be in a closer relationship with God and the people around us, we should open our hearts; we must invest in bettering our relationships with pure intention from our hearts.
God gave us the feelings and emotions we need to connect with other people, and to be capable of expressing ourselves with them. Emotions are real and necessary. Those who try to block their feelings and emotions, and their expression, often stop the genuine movements of the Holy Spirit; people can’t properly express what is in their hearts, much of which is initiated by the Spirit.
Is your heart open or closed? Do you feel comfortable opening up to your partner, or are you afraid to do so because of a past experience? If you have blocked off your heart because of a previous disappointment, I encourage you to change. Open your heart before God and begin to develop strong relationships with those around you. Dare to start today!
Pray with me
Heavenly Father, You know my heart and nothing is hidden from You. Today I confess with my mouth what I have been silent about for a long time. (Now, tell God the problems you have with your wife, your children, your parents, and even with yourself). Lord, I ask for forgiveness. Heal my heart and rescue my soul! I want to love and serve You, now and forever. I pray in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul.Romans 13:9
For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Abstain from all appearance of evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:22
The evil you tolerate is the evil that destroys you. In the first book of Samuel, we see that God told King Saul to destroy all his enemies, the Amalekites, their cattle, and even the children (1 Sam. 15). Why did God do that? Because if any of them remained alive, their perverted seed would grow and would destroy them. The teaching here is that the wicked enemy you tolerate will contaminate your heart, and you will begin to compromise your principles. Shortly thereafter, you will stop calling sin by its name, and will sustain it instead.
Adam and Eve tolerated the serpent, and allowed it to influence them spiritually. This is unnatural, because no one with sound judgment would allow a serpent to invade their home.
However, many of us tolerate sins and transgressions in our lives, even while fully aware that these things displease God. We do not realize that when we tolerate them, we are doing the same thing Adam did; giving the enemy direct access to our house and the ability to destroy our communion with God..
On this day, if there is wickedness or perversion that you are entertaining in your mind, it is time to repent and seek the Lord, you can be free now.
Pray with me
Heavenly Father, I humble myself before You today, repenting for my sins and asking forgiveness. I forgive those who need my forgiveness, and I forgive myself. I break all ties with hatred, resentment and unforgiveness, and I ask You to deliver me. Bring my soul from captivity and take me to live in the freedom of Your Son, Jesus Christ. I thank You Father, for I know that You already did it. Amen.
1 Thessalonians 4:12
That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.
Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.
He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;
All the earth will worship You,And will sing praises to You;They will sing praises to Your name. Psalm 66:4
One of the best ways to get to know God is through worship, because it is in that atmosphere that He reveals Himself. When you stop worshiping Him, you stop knowing Him, and there will come a point where you won’t know any more about God. You should never forget that God must be the center of our worship. When the worshiper loses that objective, his attention focuses on himself, and that is very dangerous because the worship becomes a “strange fire” burning on the altar (Lev. 10:1–2). It may sound beautiful and please the senses, but the presence of God is not there. For this reason, let us worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth. Get to know God intimately, and above all, never stop worshiping Him, because then you will stop knowing Him.
As we have seen, to stop worshiping God is to set foot on the path that leads us away from His presence. What is the solution? Acknowledge we have failed Him, repent and return to the house from where you should have never left. Do you want to start the return to the Father right now?
Pray with me
Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that my sin separates me from You. Today, willingly I apologize; I repent for having offended You. I confess that Jesus died for me, and that You raised Him on the third day. I acknowledge that You are my God, a faithful God who keeps the Covenant and shows mercy to those who love Him and keep His commandments. I will never again live away from You, Lord! Amen.
Exalt the Lord our God. And worship at His holy hill, For holy is the Lord our God.
Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God and serve Him onlyPsalm 100:3
Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you James 4:7
James 4:7 says: “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” Most of God’s activity on earth requires the heartfelt commitment of mankind. Without our commitment, God would not commit to step in on our behalf. We must submit to Him so He can commit to us. Many people go to church so that God will bless them. They come demanding rights, but few want to commit and submit to God. For the Lord to commit, we must be willing to submit to Him. People often think that God would bless them even if they don’t commit, but He is waiting for us to do His will, whether we like it or not. If your heart is not committed to God, He cannot trust You with more.
Allow the Holy Spirit to transform you, and give you the grace to genuinely commit your heart to the Lord. When you commit to God without reservation, He pours out His power and glory over your life. Submit to God today and He will commit to give you His provision, His glory and His power.
You can also change your life and see what it is like to make a commitment to God. In doing so, He will take your life and meet all your needs.
Pray with me
Dear Jesus, until now I thought my life was empty and purposeless. Today I acknowledge that You are the real reason for my existence; without You nothing I do makes sense. Today, I pledge to serve and be a blessing to others. have nothing to ask for, because I know that once I commit to You commit, You will commit to me, and in Your hands my life is assured. Thank you my Lord!
Put on the full armor of God, so that you can make your stand against the devil’s schemes.
Therefore take up the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you will be able to stand your ground, and having done everything, to stand.
1 Peter 5:6
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, so that in due time He may exalt you.
So if anyone cleanses himself of what is unfit, he will be a vessel for honor: sanctified, useful to the Master, and prepared for every good work. 2 Timothy 2:21
The only ability God seeks in us is availability. God does not seek someone intelligent, talented or eloquent. All of these are good traits. However, what He seeks is someone who is available. The Bible tells us that the first requirement for someone to be used by God is to be at His disposal. Many people have gifts and talents, but unfortunately, few make themselves available for Jesus. The Lord knows when a heart is available for Him. Many of His children say “No” to God because they feel they are not worthy, or that they can’t do what God asks of them, or that the burden is too heavy, or that they don’t have the necessary talent. To all of these, He says today: “If you are willing and available, I will make you a carrier of My presence and My glory, so that you may minister with My power wherever you go”.
This means that we must be ready for the time when God wants to use us to manifest His glory. All members of the body have to be available for the head. Regardless of how strong an arm is, it won’t be useful if it doesn’t do what the head wants. Are you available for God?
The gifts and talents are good, but above all, what God seeks is that you are available to serve when and where you are needed. Do you want to give your availability to the Lord?
Let us pray together
Lord Jesus, on this day I put my gifts, talents and resources at Your disposal, but above all, I want to give You my time. I am available for You. Here I am, Lord! I will go where You need me, and be an extension of Your arms to embrace the helpless; an extension of Your hands to heal the sick; I’ll be Your compassionate heart to free the captive, and Your agape love to love unconditionally. Use me Lord, I am available for You!
Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the LORD
1 Timothy 6:11
But you, O man of God, flee from these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness.2 Corinthians 9:8
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things, at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
