DIVINE FAVOR 

“For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield” (Psalm 5:12). 

The Bible makes it clear for us that the favor of the LORD is like a shield that surrounds and protects the believer on every side. That’s great news my friends! No matter what circumstance you are dealing with and praying through, no matter what sudden storm you find yourself in, you can be confident in God that you are absolutely safe under His protection. He saved Daniel from the den of lions, He parted the Red Sea to allow the Israelites to cross over. The same sea God parted to save the Israelites was used by God to destroy their enemies. 

When we cultivate the righteousness of God, His favor surrounds us like a shield. The Bible says, “The king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion; but his favor is like dew upon the grass” (Proverbs 19:12). 

Keep a humble heart and childlike spirit; keep walking with the Lord in His righteousness. Every child of God that walks in His favor brings the rain of His grace and blessings to everyone he/she meets. It’s like a sweet smelling fragrance—like fresh rain on a hot day.  *Isaiah 66:2 says, “These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word.” 

“Thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing”  (2 Corinthians 2:14-15). 

Keep a pure heart toward the Lord by living in and out of His Holy Word. Listen with your heart. See what God is showing you with spiritual eyes. May the seven-fold spirits of God rest upon you. God wants to use you to bring about restoration and reconciliation. May the spirit of wisdom and love and the spirit of counsel be upon you to speak the Truth in love to all people. 

God is still searching throughout the earth to find those whose hearts are fully His (2 Chronicles 16:9). When He finds such people, He will show Himself strong on their behalf, manifesting divine favor in and through them for all the world to see. Let us choose to be such people—lovers of God, and loving people. God created YOU to be a world changer—ambassadors of Jesus Christ to be His heart, hands, and feet to the lost and hurting world around you. You are God’s secret agent—cleverly disguised in whatever sphere of influence you find yourself. Be the change you want to see in the world! (Excerpt from GOD’S PRICELESS TREASURE, Charisma/Creation House Press, published 2011).

THE PATH TO TRUE MINISTRY

Written by Deborah. Posted in #TellTheWorld, #TellTheWorldAboutJesus, #whatmattersmost, A LEAP OF FAITH (25 Days At The Mercy Seat), and Leaders, Brokenness and prayer, DIVINE DESTINY, DRAMA TO DESTINY, Easter/ Resurrection Sunday, Encouragement, ENDTIMES, FAITH, Family, FOLLOWING JESUS, God's Priceless Treasure, Holy Spirit, JESUS IS ALIVE, Love, PAIN TO PURPOSE, Prayer, Presidents, Relationships, Repentance, Resurrection Power, Seek God, Spiritual hunger, STEP INTO PURPOSE, The Forgotten Factor of Prayer, The Midnight Hour (Will America Turn Back To God?), TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH

True ministry only operates through the person who is broken before the Lord, who has a humble and contrite heart. 

Dr. Mickey Bonner states: “Satan has authored religions to keep men powerless and busy, rather than broken. I believe this is the “spiritual wickedness in high places,” spoken of in Ephesians 6:12. His object is to get men to focus on promotion in place of prayer. Thus, the church today, for the most part is dead. The world is dying, and no amount of religious busy-ness can save it. Our salt is stepped on, our light is dim, if not out. There is no hope except a return to God on His terms. If, however, the church did return, He would again visit His people. He promised He would in 11 Chronicles 7:14. 

If we are to be used by God, we must first see what God sees in our lives. This is the reason for fasting. Denying ourselves food is not in order to get God involved in what we are doing. The purpose is to get us involved in God’s will by being broken before Him. Fasting, in its right perspective, breaks the soul from submitting to the wiles of the flesh and submits it instead to the Spirit of God within.” —Dr. Mickey Bonner

Brokenness is a wonderful experience and the beginning of all true ministry. 

If you have not read “Brokenness, The Forgotten Factor of Prayer”—you must read it. It’s a book that will change your life. 

No matter where we are on God’s timetable, we are called to occupy till He comes. Live fully committed to Jesus Christ—and tell the world about Jesus. 

Dr. Mickey Bonner’s books are available at 1-800-365-PRAY (7729) or email at mickeybonner@comcast.net and the books are available on Amazon.

God bless you!

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOVING GOD AND SERVING MAN

Written by Deborah. Posted in #TellTheWorld, #TellTheWorldAboutJesus, #whatmattersmost, A LEAP OF FAITH (25 Days At The Mercy Seat), FOLLOWING JESUS, God's Priceless Treasure, Money and leadership, Obedience, PAIN TO PURPOSE, The Midnight Hour (Will America Turn Back To God?), TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH, Uncategorized

IMG_3169Matthew 6:24 New International Version (NIV)

24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

Having money and the love of money are not the same things. The love of money is an issue of the heart. Money is a tool for exchange. It is used to grow business, to move things, to change things, to grow relationships through investing. We use things….we love people. We don’t love things.  We value life and people. If at any time you move from loving people to seeing them as only tools–assets or liabilities–there is an issue with the heart. Money can be used to build homes for the needy, to send the Gospel across the nations, and to assist in times of crisis. 

Once a person begins to serve money, they will do anything to get more of it. It can cause a person to become more self-sufficient than God-conscious. It can cause a person to betray their own family and associates–just like Judas. Be on guard about your need of Jesus as LORD and Savior. The Bible says, “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ but you don’t do what I say” (Luke 6:46). If we love God, we will obey His Word.

"Deborah imparted the tools, skills and understanding I needed to grow in the spirit. In this day's devotional, God also spoke to me of the hard lessons we all need to learn when "He" or your "Mentor" (such as Deborah) in my case, speaks into our life that we must choose to grow...

"...As a result of obedience in the midst of her desert experiences, I believe God has filled Deborah with wisdom that we would all do well to take to heart. Do you ever ask yourself why you seem to end up in the same situation over and over again? Why you fear the future, or are frustrated with relationships?...."
