DESTINY

DESTINY

Don’t let what you SEE make you forget what God has SAID.

For our knowledge is fragmentary and incomplete. The pages of your Life Story are still being written—God is the Author, so He has the last word, not man nor Satan.

Remember, Your Journey is just as Important as Your Destination, but the Beauty of the Journey is Knowing Who holds Your Destiny. ~Mary Ford❤️ 🙏🏽

“For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is complete and perfect comes, that which is incomplete and partial will pass away.” (‭‭1 Corinthians 13:9-10‬)

GUILTY

GUILTY

Heavenly Father, We humble ourselves under Your divine authority as we daily walk with Thee—realizing that it is You who give and You who take away; it is You who raise up in authority and it is You who will pull down in accordance with your good pleasure. Let us not function in self pride or vain glory in ourselves; but help us to glory in You, Oh Lord, who made the heavens and earth—the one who is able to destroy and save both body and soul! Selah.

For what have You required of us, Oh Lord, but to do good, love mercy, and walk humbly with You our God? We confess that we have sinned and fallen short in so many ways—Forgive us our sins, transgressions and iniquities, Oh Lord, wash us and we shall be cleansed; and purge us from all unrighteousness! Create in us a clean heart and renew in us a right spirit so that we might serve You in sincerity, passion and with power and purpose!

Thank you, Father, for the precious blood of JESUS that can wash away every stain of sin and restore us to a right relationship with you—Hallelujah! Thank you, Father, for such great a Love that chases us down and covers us at our lowest point!

Father, we thank you for your grace that gives us what we don’t deserve and for you mercy that constantly holds back what we do deserve! Selah.

Abba…We belong to you! Take us and mold us after Your likeness; order our every step into Your divine will; and lead us in Your way of righteousness this day. It’s in the saving name of Jesus I pray and praise you always…Amen 🙏🏽~M. Ford

“So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with Him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes. I prayed to the Lord my God and confessed: “Lord, the great and AWESOME God, who keeps HIS covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes and our ancestors, and to all the people of the land.” “O my God, incline your ear and hear. Open your eyes and see our desolations, and the city that is called by your name. For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy. O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. O Lord, pay attention and act. Delay not, for your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.”” (Daniel‬ ‭9:3-6‬; 9-18)

LIVING WATER💦

Sovereign God, Holy and Righteous is Your Name! We call upon You, Oh God, to bind up the broken hearted, to cast out the spirit of fear and confusion in our lives, and to loose your power, love, faith and hope within each of us so that we might live our lives holy and acceptable to You! No longer yielding to the ways of this world, succumbing to our lustful fleshly desires, or yielding to temptations and pride of life!

Lord, please guard our hearts and our minds so that our speech, thoughts, actions and deeds line up with Your Word and Your perfect Will. Give us a hungry for the meat of your Word and a thirst for The Living Water that can not be quenched.

Thank You, Father, for your faithfulness! It’s In Jesus’ precious name I pray. Amen 🙏🏽~M. Ford

“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare.” (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:1-2‬ ‭NIV‬‬)
