Lord God Almighty, shaper and ruler of all creatures, we pray for your great mercy, that you guide us towards you, for we cannot find our way. And guide us to your will, to the need of our soul, for we cannot do it ourselves. And make our mind steadfast in your will and aware of our soul’s need.Strengthen us against the temptations of the devil, and remove from us all lust and every unrighteousness, and shield us against our foes, seen and unseen. Teach us to do your will, that we may inwardly love you before all things with a pure mind. For you are our maker and our redeemer, our help, our comfort, our trust, our hope; praise and glory be to you now and forever. Amen.
The Enemy may think he has Won, But God has 1 More Move!
Are you in a hard situation today? Facing unspeakable odds where you feel as if the devil has won? Well, let me reassure you that HE HAS NOT! With God ALL THINGS are possible! God makes a way out of nowhere! I’ve seen it time and time again.
I had a Christmas season one year (When I was going through some of the toughest warfare I had ever faced financially) where I was jobless and our pantry had gotten down to almost nothing. We had no money for food, or gifts, NOR for did we have money for Christmas dinner. I was living with my mother to help take care of her and she knew we were in a “dire” position. So she and I gathered in our kitchen and we decided to go to God/Jesus about our plight through prayer. We told him what was in our hearts, and through our tears we told Him what we needed and that we wanted to celebrate His birth but were worried because we were totally overwhelmed with the lack we were facing.
After we cried and prayed to God we just stood there looking at each other in silence until the phone rang and jolted us back to reality some 10 min later. I answered it only to find out that my severance package (which had been declined previously ) had been miraculously approved, I had also applied for a loan at my bank (not knowing how I was going to pay it back without a job), but it had been approved. THEN BEFORE we had even prayed I went BACK to our answering machine only to find that the Texas Workforce Commission had called to talk to me about gainful employment. BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER our request to the Lord!!! He was already on the problem LONG BEFORE we hit our knees in prayer!!!!!! But I didn’t find out about His plan until 10 min AFTER praying and right on time! Right on time! EVERY TIME! He’s right on TIME!!!
He’s always RIGHT ON TIME! Not “just in the nick of time but RIGHT ON TIME” because He’s perfect!. God may not come when you want him, but he’s always on-time. God truly does have 1 more move.
