Will You Invite Him In?


God is always trying to work in us, in our families, in our situations and in our circumstances. He is Immanuel, God with us.  He is Jehovah Shammah, ever-present. He calls himself I AM, not I was or I will be, which means He is present right now ready to work in our lives.  Now that I have enlightened you with this great piece of information, do you think this will this change anything in your present life?  If not, it should.  It should give you a better perspective of just who God is.  As our relationship with God grows, it is easier to understand the many facets of who He is.  Before the relationship can grow, it must first be established.  God is such a gentleman. He will not force Himself into our lives, He must be invited in. Once we give Him the invitation and welcome Him in, He begins to remold us and make us into what His original intention was before the craziness of this world messed us up.

For me personally, knowing that God is with me gives me confidence.  I am able to walk in that peace that Paul talks about in Philippians 4:7, the peace of God that surpasses all understanding.  It makes me feel as though no matter what is going on around me, good or bad, I am taken care of.  No matter what the enemy does to try to attack, I am alright.  Why?  Because God is with me.  Have you invited Christ into your life as your personal Lord and Savior?  I have invited Him into my life.  I am absolutely nothing without God and truth be told, neither are you.  None of us are.  I tell Him each and everyday how much I need Him and thank Him for loving me enough to never leave me.  God is no respecter of persons.  He does not show favoritism, so that means He loves you just as much as He loves me and everyone else in this world.  Even when we sin, He still loves us.  Even when we don’t love ourselves, He loves us.  I can truly testify that the remolding can sometimes be a tough process, but the end result will be pure excellence. Will you invite Him in?  #iDeclare #willyouinviteHimin


Heavenly Father, I thank you for being who you are.  I now understand that you are Jehovah Shammah, which means you are ever-present in my life and I thank you.  Thank You for being with me God.  I need you Lord, for I am nothing without you.  I invite you into my life and everything concerning me.  Thank you for loving me, even when I don’t love myself and for shaping me and making me into the person you created me to be.  I honor You, praise You, and thank You for hearing my prayer.  In Jesus Name, Amen.

***If you want to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Personal Savior right now, pray this prayer…***

Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge that I am a sinner.  I am sorry for my sins and I repent.  Please God, forgive me.  I need your forgiveness.

I believe that your only begotten Son, Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.

You said in Your Holy Word, that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.

Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved.

Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself.

Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life.

*If you just said this prayer and you meant it with all your heart and you have repented for your sins, I believe that you just got saved and are born again.  Congratulations on making the very best decision you could ever make in life.

Get Your Mind Right

It’s amazing how one’s perception can affect so many things.  Let’s face it, life is just that… life.  Stuff happens, a lot of which we have no control over.  What we can control, however is our perception and how we handle those things that do happen.  Instead of looking at seemingly not so good situations as trouble, switch your perspective, find the positive and decide to approach it as an opportunity.   As children of God, it is so important that we take the opportunity to show God how much we love and trust Him each and every day of our lives, in every aspect of our lives.  God is omniscience, which means He is all-knowing.  He already knows what is going to happen before it ever actually does.  He just wants to see how you are going to process it.  He wants to see if you believe His word and you really do trust Him with all things. I find it interesting how we can trust Him with our children or our jobs, but when it comes to other situations like our marriage or our finances we tend to want to handle those on our own.  You can’t pick and choose; God wants to be God over every aspect of your life, not just what you want to Him to be in charge of.

We have to change our perspective. How do you change your perspective?  Study the word of God.  The more you study the bible, the more you will know.  And as you learn more, that is where the transformation begins to take place.  This will also help build your personal relationship with God.  In addition to reading and learning more about the word, pray and ask God to help you.  God never intended for us to change ourselves.  He wants to do it, after all, He is the one who created us, but we just have to ask.

I believe wholeheartedly that when you know better, you do better.  Once you do, there is nothing better than seeing first hand the changes that God is doing within you.  Not only seeing, but feeling the difference when something transpires that to the world wouldn’t seem good at all, however you see it as an opportunity to trust God. Today’s decisions are tomorrow’s reality. Don’t let short-term passions destroy long-term blessings! Choose peace, choose love, choose joy, choose perseverance, choose faith, and most importantly choose a Godly perspective! #iDeclare #timetogetyourmindright


Father God in the name of Jesus, I come asking for your help Lord.  I really do need to get my mind right.  Help me to change my perspective and perception on life.  Help me to take you at your word.  I speak a positive outlook over myself and over any situation that may come my way.  I decree and declare that I will trust you with every area of my life.  I will not lean on my own understanding, but I will acknowledge you in all things.  I decree and declare that I will make right decisions and choose to walk in peace, love, joy, happiness, faith, patience, gentleness, and perseverance.  Help me to have a Godly perspective.  I lift every yoke, every strong hold, every burden off of my shoulders right now in the name of Jesus and I speak peace into my spirit.  I thank you Lord of the peace of God that surpasses all understanding that I will have each and every day of my life.  Thank you God for transforming my mind.  In Jesus name, Amen.
