Overcoming, persisting and never giving up

Good Morning Heavenly Father. What a wonderful morning. Such a bright sunny day, with wisps of clouds here and there and a gentle breeze. It reminds me of how marvelous you created this world. It is amazing. Your fingerprints are all over it! Thank you for loving us so much that you would go to such lengths to make this world so wonderful just for us. Thank you. And thank you for the scripture that talks about your daughter you love, your Lindsey!

We are experiencing trouble on every side, but are not crushed; we are perplexed, but not driven to despair; we are persecuted, but not abandoned; we are knocked down, but not destroyed, 10 always carrying around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible in our body. 11 For we who are alive are constantly being handed over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible in our mortal body. (2Corinthians 4:8-11 NET)

Lord, it’s me. I’m sill here. Now I am here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. Lord, your Word seems to be talking about how she lives … how she lives for you! And so I pray this over you now Lindsey. Yes! Lindsey, you have experienced trouble on every side, but you have never been crushed. You have been in many perplexing situations around the world, yet you do not fall into despair! You have felt persecuted, but you know that God has never abandoned you. You have been knocked down more than once, even during a performance, but you always get up. You are persistent! Nothing has been able to destroy you. And in the midst of all this, you continue to always carry Jesus around within you. Everywhere that you go around the world, Jesus can be seen working in you. Yes, you are fully alive and energized even while constantly being delivered unto death for the sake of Jesus! And that is how Jesus is so visible in your mortal body. And so I pray now for you Lindsey. I pray that you could sense the presence of the Lord around you every day and that he would daily fill you with his joy. I pray that his joy within you would be a basis for your strength. I pray that the thousands of people who see you during your tour would see something special in you and wonder just what it it. And I pray that the Lord would open the eyes of those who find themselves wondering just that. I pray that they would want to live like that themselves. And we give the glory to the Lord. The glory is all his. All the glory, all the time. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.

King James Version for your reference:

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness

Mammon: An Aramaic word meaning “riches,” personified in Matt. 6:24; Luke 16:9, 11, 13. [from Bible Dictionary]

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for thunder and lightning (and how they both are actually the same thing) for it allows us just a glimpse of how power can be unleashed in the world. Thank you for the display of lightning that goes across the sky in an instant and a blink of an eye later is completely gone. Thank you for the LOUD crack of thunder to remind us of the power that was behind that very brief display in the sky. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

[Jesus said:] No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (Matthew 6:24-34)

Lord, I’m here again to pray for your daughter. I enjoy my time here and the chance to lift her up to you. Lindsey, today is a day to remember that all you need to do is to seek FIRST the kingdom of God. If you do that God has said not to worry, that he would take care of you. Not only just take care of you, but that he would ADD all the things you need to the result of seeking first his kingdom. He also reminds you that tomorrow will have its own problems and troubles … all you need to do is focus on today’s :) Lord, I ask that as Lindsey does seek first your kingdom, that you would show up in her life each day to relieve some of the problems of each day. Let her feel your presence as you take care of her wherever she may be.  And all the glory is yours. The glory all goes to you. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Troubles? Trust in the Lord who is good!

Hello Heavenly Father! Thank you for watching over my family yesterday. I know you will watch over us today as well. Thank you for always being with us and never leaving us. Thank you for being our guide, for lighting a path for us to follow. Thank you Lord. And thank you for highlighting this scripture for me so that I would use it as a basis for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. (Nahum 1:7)

Yes, it’s me here before your throne. I am here again to lift up your talented daughter who puts all her trust in you.  I ask that you care for her in good times as well as days of trouble.  Be her refuge, be her stronghold Lord, for we know that you are good.  And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
