A Lot Of People Have Been Praying For Me

praying for me

Once I met someone who was going through a very difficult time. She was struggling with suicidal thoughts, as she couldn’t see the meaning of life. Among other things, I shared with her about how much Jesus loves her, and I encouraged her to spend time in the Word. I prayed for her, and we agreed to meet the following week. – And when I met her again, she was totally changed. She was all smiles! She was enjoying life and found such joy spending time in the Word. I was amazed and asked her: “What happened?” After a few moments of pondering, she said: “I know a lot of people have been praying for me.” – I thought that was so profound, and was reminded of the power of prayer afresh.

Superfluous Love

superfluous love

“And this is my prayer: that your love may abound
more and more in knowledge and depth of insight,
SO THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO DISCERN WHAT IS BEST
and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ,
filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ
—to the glory and praise of God.”
Phil 1:9-11 NIV

WORD STUDY:

ABOUND – perisseúō
– to superabound in quantity or quality, be in excess, be superfluous

How does our love abound, be superfluous – towards the Lord, ourselves, others?
By knowing Him and receiving His abounding and superfluous love towards us.

Expand My Territory



“There was a man named Jabez 
who was more honorable than any of his brothers. 
His mother named him Jabez 
because his birth had been so painful. 
He was the one who prayed to the God of Israel, 

“Oh, that you would bless me and expand my territory! 
Please be with me in all that I do, 
and keep me from all trouble and pain!” 

And God granted him his request.”

1 Chronicles 4:9-10 NLT

This is Jabez’ prayer. 
We have our ‘Yes and Amen’ to this in Christ. 

The Secret To Answered Prayers

The Secret To Answered Prayers

Such blessed assurance. 
Let’s open our hearts to Daddy God today and involve Him in whatever is happening in our lives. He is abundant Supply to us always.
Listen to this: 
“In Jesus we hear a resounding “YES” to ALL of God’s MANY promises. 
This is the reason we say “AMEN” to and through Jesus when giving glory to God.” 
2 Cor 1:20 VOICE
Our answered prayer is NOT based on: Am I pleasing to God? 
It is based on: Is Christ pleasing to God?
Our answered prayer is NOT based on what we have done or not done. 
It is based on what HE HAS DONE and completed at the cross.
We may undeservingly receive what He deserves today.

Prosper In Times Of Famine

Prosper In Times Of Famine

“So with SEVERE FAMINE EVERYWHERE, Joseph opened up the STOREHOUSES and distributed grain to the Egyptians…and people from all around came to Egypt to buy grain from Joseph because the famine was severe throughout the world.” Gen 41:56-57
I love how God revealed to Joseph what would happen in the future, so that they could RESPOND and PREPARE and not suffer lack during the famine. – God reveals future incidents to us too, so that we can pray and be part of the solution.
Most of all I love how this reveals Jesus as our Heavenly Joseph. He has been put in charge. The work is completed, all we need is stored in Him. “COME, receive freely and abundantly,” He says.
I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. John 6:35
