Walk in His Presence...

MENU

/daily-blessing/walk-in-his-presence

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

So, I've taken up blogging again. :) Each day I'll write a few additional thoughts to add to the blessing I post on Facebook that day. Today I'll give away 2 copies of my new book, 'Blessings for the Evening' to someone who posts on my blog.

Here's today's blessing:

Start a Day Blessing: May the Kingdom, Power, and Presence of the Living God seem nearer to you now than ever before. May your understanding of what you possess in Him grow exponentially today. May you see glimpses of glory everywhere you turn so you're reminded that God is very much at work behind the scenes, answering your prayers, opening doors, and moving mountains. Jesus lives to pray for you and when He prays heaven moves. Walk full of faith today simply because heaven sings a song over you. God is at work on your behalf, and any day now, you will see Him breakthrough. Bless you, friend!

One of my life verses is Psalm 116:9 ~ And so I walk in His presence as I live here on earth.

I love the idea of walking in constant and continual awareness of the Living God in my midst. He is for us, with us, and making a way for us in ways that we cannot fathom or comprehend. 

Maybe you've read the famous quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, but it bears repeating here:

Earth is crammed with heaven. And every common bush afire with God; but only he who sees takes off his shoes. The rest just sit around and pick blackberries.

Jesus is continually speaking to a waiting and watching world. The problem is, so few of us are waiting or watching. But what if we had the presence of mind to acknowledge and honor Him in our midst? What if we had the wisdom to take off our shoes and acknowledge those sacred moments that take place amidst our ordinary days? I'll tell you what would happen: we'd be changed; transformed; and, we'd gain a deeper understanding of the Kingdom people we were always intended to be.

Scripture tells us that it's in His presence, the fullness of joy is found. We find our deepest joy in Him and with Him. So of course the enemy wants us racing through life, totally missing the treasured access we've been offered through Christ Jesus.

May we pause today and remember afresh that we are the object of God's affection. He loves us deeply, profoundly, and truly. And no one can gossip enough to Him about us to make Him change His mind about us. 

Jesus Himself--right at this moment--is praying for you, pulling foryou, and interceding for you in ways you wouldn't even know how to pray for yourself. Isn't that just an amazing thought? 

Walk in His presence today. Delight in Him. In due time, He will satisfiy the deepest desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4).

Blessings on your day today!

Thanksgiving Blessing

MENU

/daily-blessing/2017/11/22/thanksgiving-blessing

Daily Blessing

Over the next few days, may you let go of the little stresses that nag you, and instead, learn to enjoy the journey. Look around and give thanks for the everyday provisions you'd miss if they went away tomorrow. Slow down long enough to take in the sights, scents, and simple joys of this season. You're more loved than you can fathom and more blessed than you know. Take a deep breath, exhale, and enjoy your holiday. You have Jesus and He will one day restore every part of your story. Happy Thanksgiving.

God's Grace & Righteousness

MENU

/daily-blessing/2017/11/15/gods-grace-righteousness

Daily Blessing

May you determine to travel lighter starting now. . May you—with your God-given authority in Christ—demand that the enemy shut his mouth and leave you alone. May you discern the baggage of man-made obligations and lay them down. May you decide to fling aside your own self-condemning thoughts and wrap yourself up in God’s beautiful grace and righteousness instead. And, may you march on from here, full of faith, empowered by grace, and awakened by God’s love, and walk as one who’s been spoken for by God above. May your latter days be far more blessed than your former days. Jesus is always up to something new. Bless you!

Truly, you have all that you need even while you wait for Him to tend to the longings of your heart. May you feel as rich as you are. And may His regal heart beat loudly in your chest so you will carry yourself like the heir you are. Have a blessed day and a restful night.

While You Wait

MENU

/daily-blessing/2016/12/29/while-you-wait

Daily Blessing

May your emotions find rest in God alone while you wait for Him to answer your prayers. May you dare to sing a new song even when sighing feels easier to do. May you slow down and sit down for a while, just for the sake of rest and reflection. And when you get up again, may you find new resolve to stand firmly on God's promises and to walk forward in faith. If you take one humble, bold step at a time, you'll eventually put your toes on your promised land.

Pray Like an Heir

MENU

/daily-blessing/2017/1/23/pray-like-an-heir

Daily Prayer

Precious Lord, I surrender to Your will. I humble myself before You, open my hands, and ask, speak to my heart, dear Lord. Show me where I’ve lost expectancy. Teach me how to hope in You in alone. Deal with those places in my heart where I’ve settled, let go, and quit fighting. I want to be a warrior for You! Help me to take Your promises as they stand. Teach me to walk with wisdom and discernment. I’m an heir. Teach me to live like one, pray like one, and believe like one. Your victory on the cross made all the difference. Help me to live like that’s true. Give me the holy gumption to go after the things You’ve promised me. Overwhelm me with a fresh sense of Your goodness, Your grace, and Your power. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.

Stay the Course

MENU

/daily-blessing/2017/11/15/stay-the-course

Daily Blessing

If you’re in a season of hardship and life feels like an uphill climb, may you stay the course until Jesus tells you otherwise. May you determine NOT to make any rash decisions that you’ll later regret. May you instead, fix your eyes on Jesus, and take your cues from Him. May you trust Jesus to carry your burden so you can hold fast to His promises. May you exhale frustration and inhale God’s peace and provision. This season will pass. And you’ll come through it with strength, clarity, and conviction. Don’t take the enemy’s bait. Follow the Savior’s lead. You’ll be glad you did. Blessings on your day today and on your night tonight!

Release Your Cares

MENU

/daily-blessing/2017/1/4/release-your-cares

Daily Blessing

May God Himself surround you with His tender mercies and grace today. May He heal your soul so you can live by faith. Where you once reacted out of your insecurities, may you respond in faith knowing you possess all in Christ. Where you once white-knuckled your worries may you release every care to Him and lift your hands in praise. You are not made for this world. You're only passing through. May you live as the divinely loved and called soul you are! Have a great day.

 

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18 niv).

Sometimes it feels like He's slow to intervene but the truth is, He's meticulous and miraculous, He's sovereign and strategic. He knows what He's doing and He deserves our trust. May we all rest in Him tonight. He'll do the heavy lifting. Blessings to you!

May you be willing to do something different so you'll be ready and equipped for this next place of promise. He's got a new chapter ahead for you. May you care enough about your story to leave the lesser things behind. You're so precious and important to Him! Blessings on your day today.

For Your Loved Ones

/daily-blessing/2017/11/8/for-your-loved-ones

A Special Prayer

Precious Lord,

Here I am again, lifting up my loved ones to You. Jesus, draw them near, by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Heal their deepest wounds. Make their crooked ways straight. And open their eyes where they are blind. Dear God, drive a wedge between every person and circumstance that the enemy is using to send a lying message to them. Line their path with people and circumstances that speak life-giving, soul-restoring truth until they're totally free! May a revival break out all over our nation! May the prodigals come home, may the weary be restored, and the broken be healed. We wait for You, God to do what only You can do. You hear us when we pray. Help every brokenhearted mom and dad to rest in the promise that You love our loved ones far more passionately than we do! And may we trust You so deeply in this process that we’re able to choose joy in the meantime. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.

Keep Perspective

Daily Blessing

May you ponder what God is saying to you in this place of not-yets and what-ifs. Do you hear His whisper to be still and trust Him? May you dream big dreams in the face of your fears. May you courageously hold your ground when you'd rather run and hide. And may you entrust your heart's desires to a God who is very much involved, very much in control, and very much invested in your life. Remember who you are. Remember Whose you are. Keep perspective. Lay hold of faith. Take the next step.

 

From the ends of the earth, I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I (Psalm 61:2 NIV).

Choose Life Today!

Daily Blessing

When the enemy tries to bait you into discouragement, may you instead take your courageous stand in Christ Jesus. When the devil tries to seduce you into despair, may you instead walk through the door of hope God has provided for you. When you're tempted to walk down jealousy's path, may you instead embrace your own beautiful purpose and take the high road God has set before you. There's a best place for your feet today. Choose life today!

 

I place before you Life and Death, Blessing and Curse. Choose life so that you and your children will live. And love God, your God, listening obediently to him, firmly embracing him. Oh yes, he is life itself, a long life settled on the soil that God, your God, promised to give your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Deuteronomy 30:19-20 msg).

Ask for the Impossible

MENU

/daily-blessing/2017/10/29/ask-for-the-impossible

Daily Blessing

May you refuse to let your emotions dictate your perspective. You have Jesus. You have His presence. And you have His promises! When what your eyes see is different than what your heart deeply desires, look up and pray. He invites you to walk with Him, talk with Him, and involve Him in every detail of your life. If you're in the 'not-yet' season, take time to worship God because He's God; take time to thank Him too, because He's been good. And dare to ask for the impossible, because He's a wonder-working God. Your story is not over yet. Have a heart-at-rest kind of night. God bless you!

 

And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns (Philippians 1:6 NLT).

Blessings on your day today.

Only those who’ve walked through the valley of the shadow will truly grasp the power of redemption on the other side. Jesus withholds NO good thing from those who walk intimately with Him. He’s not the reason you suffer; He’s with you in the storm. He is your Shelter, Deliverer, and Strong Tower. He’s Your Redeemer, Savior, and Friend. He’s your Prince of Peace and Sure Defender. Find your footing again. Engage your faith. Embrace a right perspective. Trust Jesus with your whole heart and see what Love will do.
