“GROW THROUGH IT”

“GROW THROUGH IT”

Heavenly Father, help your children as we strive to do your will. Renew our strength and encourage our hearts this day. Mount us up on wings of eagles! As we walk, let us not faint. When we run, let us not get weary. As we stand still, let us feel your presence and power encouraging us to remain strong and run on!

Father, give us an extra portion of your strength, mercy and grace on this day. Render the weapons formed by the enemy ineffective against us! Give us your joy unspeakable that transcends our happenings.

As we forge forward in fighting the good Fight of Faith, help us stay positive, keep the faith and GROW through what we GO through!

Thank you Lord for your unfailing love and Faithfulness! Let Your perfect will be done in and through us this day…In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen~M. Ford🙏🏽

“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” (‭‭I John‬ ‭5:14-15‬)

“FOR YOUR GLORY”

“FOR YOUR GLORY”

Heavenly Father, We give You all glory and honor this day! As we prepare to move out into the unknown, Empower each of us through the Holy Spirit and endow us with wisdom, knowledge and understanding so that we might prosper in every good work for Your glory!

Deliver your children from every fear that will hinder us from walking in our purpose with passion; or yield to temptations that cause us to become so easily ensnared by the enemy’s tricks and traps.

Let us stand steadfast with holy boldness; knowing that you have not given us a spirit of fear, but of Love, Power and a sound mind.

Give us a healthy fear of you that permeates our hearts and minds—bringing us into the knowledge of Your holiness, righteousness and sovereignty.

Help us to live out our purpose daily—being the salt and light in a dark and unsavory world; and allowing the love of Christ to overflow on all we meet.

It’s in the sovereign name of Jesus I pray and praise You always…Amen.🙏🏽~M. Ford

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:10)

“THE LORD IS…”

“THE LORD IS…”

Abba, we thank you for every good & perfect gift! We know not what this new week holds, so we commit it into Your loving hands. Allow Your rod and staff to protect & order our every step as You lovingly guide us into your perfect Will.

Father, there are so many of your children hurting and dealing with every issue under the sun. But, We know you can mend broken hearts and bring peace & comfort to those bereaved; revive & restore marriages; bring order to dysfunctional families; heal those who are sick; bring clarity of mind to those confused by the enemy; give hope to the hopeless, unveil blinded eyes of the lost, and give courage & confidence to those called by Your name so that they trust and see YOU clearly in every situation!

Thank you, Abba, for giving your Angels charge over us as we move out into the unknown—Surely Your goodness and mercy will follow us as we intentionally follow You! Cover each of us this day and keep us in your perfect Will.

You indeed are Good God and we love & adore you! It’s in the precious Name of Jesus I pray, Amen 🙏🏽

“BIGGER FRUIT”

Who Do You See In This Picture?

“BIGGER FRUIT”

Pruning Is Painful, But Necessary.

Pruning is a necessary part of the spiritual development process in order for the believer to move to the Next Level in their walk with Christ.

The price of pruning may seem high while you are in the process, but the end result will be spectacular!

Are you willing to submit to the pruning process in order to glorify God and reach your fullest potential in Christ? ~M. Ford

“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭15:1-2‬)

“Armed & Dangerous”

“Armed & Dangerous”

In order not to fall for the enemy’s lies, we must learn to stand on God’s truths.

Spiritual battles are won “Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the Lord!

So, when the enemy comes against you like a flood, that’s the time to pull out your Weapons of Spiritual Warfare: The Word, Praise and PRAYER! 📖💃🙏

Having these three in your spiritual arsenal makes the believer Armed and Dangerous!~M. Ford👿👊🏽💪🏽✝️

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil…” (Ephesians‬ ‭6:10-18)

“For Your Glory!”

Heavenly Father, As we launch out into a new day, we ask that you go before us to prepare the way. Line us up with your divine purpose as we put all our hope and trust in YOU—The One who make all things possible!

Father—lead, guide, direct and protect each of us as we go forward in this day. Allow us to accomplish every good work for Your glory! We proclaim that every trick and trap the enemy has set is spoiled, rendered useless, and defeated in the mighty and matchless name of Jesus Christ!

Father, we surrender our wills to yours; allow your Spirit to fall fresh upon us so that we are empowered to accomplish every good work in your name. Let the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable in Your sight this day, Oh Lord, for You alone are our strength and redeemer! We love, adore and honor You, Abba! Have Your Way…In Jesus’ name…Amen! 🙌🏼☝🏾🙏🏽~M. Ford
