Little Cloud of Faith

On this absolutely gorgeous day…that I’m thoroughly enjoying….I see this little teeny cloud. And I started thinking about Elijah praying to end the drought. I am not praying for rain but I am praying that you get a hold of the same kind of resolve that Elijah had telling his servant and Ahab to run from that teeny cloud, knowing with all that he was that God had answered His prayer.

Faith is believing before you see the manifestation of your promise or answer to your prayer. Knowing that He who has promised is faithful.

“Finally the seventh time, his servant told him, “I saw a little cloud about the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea.”

Then Elijah shouted, “Hurry to Ahab and tell him, ‘Climb into your chariot and go back home. If you don’t hurry, the rain will stop you!’” 1Kings 18:44

Seeing isn’t believing, believing is seeing!

Prayer Wall

Are you a prayer warrior or do you need prayer? Then check this out: Prayer Wall

For you warriors, I’ve noticed that depending upon when people post, some requests get like 20-40 people praying, while others don’t have anyone or only 1 person praying.  Feel free to scroll down and pray for those requests that God puts on your heart or all of them if you want.

Nothing happens without prayer.  But with prayer, all things are possible.

Our words have CREATIVE POWER.  Speak what you want to see not don’t speak the problem.

Blessing and Prayer from Numbers 6

There’s a blessing recorded in Numbers 6:24-26:

“The Lord bless you and keep you;  The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”  

I like this blessing and I am choosing to speak it over you.  But I can’t just post the blessing without you understanding just how good of a blessing it is.

– The Lord here is Yahweh (also pronounced Jehovah) which is God’s proper name in Hebrew. 

 – Bless is to prosper as the result of divine favor.  Prosper in a Biblical context isn’t just financial prosperity.  It’s to be successful at whatever you set your hand to do.  It includes relationships.  It includes ministry.  It includes your health.  It includes rest and peace.  It’s an overarching prosperity in every area of your life. 

 – Keep is to keep, tend or watch.  Usually referring to a garden or a flock of sheep.

 -Face shine upon you has to do with God’s presence and having His favor.

 -Gracious means to have mercy, have pity upon or to have favor towards.

 -Lift up countenance means to cheer up, but when it’s in reference to God it means that God looks upon you with kindness.

 -Give here means to put, set in place or establish.

 -The best part of this blessing is that peace is the Hebrew word Shalom.  It can mean hello, goodbye or peace.  But it isn’t just peace.  Shalom is an all encompassing peace.   This peace includes contentment, completeness, wholeness, well being and harmony. 

Based on Numbers 6:24-26, this is my prayer for you today.

Father, I ask that every person who reads this know that You are God.  That You are big enough and that Your grace is sufficient.  I pray that they feel and acknowledge Your presence in their life today.  That they know down to their core that You are with them and You are for them.  I pray they see You working in every area of their life. 

 I ask for Your divine favor and gracious mercies follow them, even pursue them today and every day.  I pray that You keep watch over them and their families.  I pray that You to protect them, even if it’s from themselves.  I pray that they will be restored to wholeness and be established in peace.  I pray that they will receive and choose to walk in Your peace that passes all understanding.  I ask that they maintain contentment no matter how good or bad their present circumstances are and that they maintain an attitude of gratitude.   I ask this all in the name of Your precious Son Jesus.  Amen.

 Have a wonderful Wednesday!
