I thought about what Jesus dying on the cross meant to me (Selah)

 When you were stuck in your old sin-dead life, you were incapable of responding to God. God brought you alive—right along with Christ! Think of it! All sins forgiven, the slate wiped clean, that old arrest warrant canceled and nailed to Christ’s cross. He stripped all the spiritual tyrants in the universe of their sham authority at the Cross and marched them naked through the streets. Colossians 2:13-15 MSG
My wills and desires are surrendered on the cross
That He would use me for His purpose alone
My flaws, mistakes and imperfection I nail to the cross
That I will be transformed to Christ Image
The cross signifies Christ act of service to humanity
He sacrificed His life for me
He gave it all up for me and you
All my sins are nailed to the cross for good
Yes for good
Letting go of all my burdens at the foot of the cross
An exchange took place
Beauty for ashes, joy for Mourning, blessings for curses
Now I am free
Set free indeedSurrender
lost hope

During a period  of lost hope, frustration and disappointments, my thoughts from me to the Lord and His thoughts, the Lord to me.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.  Isaiah 55:8-9 NKJV



When all around me was sinking
When I had lost all courage to carry on
My light seemed like darkness
My road was rough and cooked
I searched every corners for help
I looked to the east, west, north and south
No one came rushing to my beckon
So I stood still to seek His face
Looked up to the heavens
Cried out to Him with all my heart
He heard my plea

He said
Trust me to bring you out of this mess
And l will make the crooked road straight
You have searched everywhere else, But not Me
Come to Me, you broken one and I will give you rest
I am the light that shines in the midst of darkness
I am the way,truth, and life.
In Me your joy, hope and faith is secured
Yes in Me.

I woke up this morning seeking His face, so drawn into His presence, I share my thoughts with you.
My prayer is that after spending your precious time reading this, you will be stirred up in your hearts to move deeper, stepping up the ladder in spending quality time in His presence.

Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. Psalm 42:7 kJV

I am so drawn to into His presence

Where my heart is entwined with Yours

My spirit becomes united with Your spirit
Heart to heart, spirit to spirit
United as one

What fullness of joy there is in His presence
In His presence is where I am complete
Saturate me more in His presence
In His presence is where I am so overwhelmed
Filled with Your fragrance of love
Mesmerized by Your love
Filled with the freshness of Your ever present  peace

Oh how I long to run to into His presence
Where I feel safe and secured
I am at a place of rest in His presence
Where my worries is taken care of by my Daddy
And I don’t need to analyze my cares till I paralyze
I am comforted by your words of assurance
Yes it is finished, stamped  and sealed in the blood of Jesus.

In His Presence

Praise God

How do you praise your way through the storm? When do you praise your way through to God? Is it when you are happy or sad? Does your present circumstances, emotional state of mind determine when to praise your way through to God?

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving anda thank offering and into His courts with praise! Be thankful and say so to Him, bless and affectionately praise His name! Psalm 100:4 amp

All heavens declare the glory of the risen Lord
Let the earth bow down and worship the most high God
How great thou art, You reign in majesty
From victory to victory, mighty in battle are You

When I think about the good things You have done
I lift my hands up and shout praises to Jehovah Nisi
Even when I am feeling down, discouraged and disheartened
I sing praise to Your holy name
The devil flees forcefully at the sound of the name of Jesus
Something happens
Shackles are broken loose, the bound are set free
Breakthrough happens, divine exchange takes place

So Lord I praise my way through every situation
It does not matter how hard or challenging it is
During the stormy or rainy days
Praise is the secret code to entering into His presence

Praise
