Matthew 5:6-8 Happy are those who long to be just and good, for they shall be completely satisfied. Happy are the kind and merciful, for they shall be shown mercy. Happy are those whose hearts are pure, for they shall see God. Living Bible
Listen UP To This Sweet Truth And Speak Out About God’s Incredible Mercy:
The Light Of Mercy
Mercy is a light that overcame the darkness and today, it is a light in us that leads people to Jesus, breaking through their darkness, shining the glory of God. Be merciful because your Father God is merciful to you. God’s mercy is constantly extended, therefore in His Image so should our heart of mercy be given unconditionally.
Psalm 112: 1-3 The Lord blesses everyone who worships him and gladly obeys his teachings. Their descendants will have great power in the land, because the Lord blesses all who do right. They will get rich and prosper and will always be remembered for their fairness. They will be so kind and merciful and good, that they will be a light in the dark for others who do the right thing.
Mercy Was Purchased For Us
Jesus Is Our Mercy, He Died Our Death So We Could Live Through His Life In His Righteousness. We need to speak up about the Mercy of God and share with others how it break chains, changes destinies, saves for all eternity. We are held in God’s Presence by purchase of our Mercy by Jesus, our Savior.
Mercy walks into our lives and changes everything, even our destiny. AWE-GOD! Listen UP:
Jealousy Is A Dangerous Weapon
The enemy uses jealousy. One of the biggest glimpses of this truth is how it changed Saul to unreasonable hatred towards David. David had a heart after God. Jealousy opened the door of Saul’s heart for the enemy to enter and when the enemy entered, he turned Saul into a raving lunatic. Jealousy is a powerful weapon of the enemy and we need to steer our lives clearly away from it, keeping it a bay. Jealousy changes us in ways we could not even imagine, but I think the worst way is that it strips us of the mercy of God, not His mercy, it is always extended towards us, but the mercy in us stops flowing because jealousy damns it up. Jealousy causes us to have a selfish cause that sees only the advantage for self and mercy can only be dispensed out of a heart that is completely selfless. Mercy is self-sacrificing and jealousy is the opposite extreme, the two are never walking on the same street. May we shed our lives of every remnant of jealousy and walk wholly-holy with God in His nature. KimberlyMac
Psalm 66:20 Blessed be God, Who has not turned away my prayer, nor His mercy from me!
Precious God family, One offering perfected us, so that we are free. May we never lose the wonder of God’s Mercy, may we walk in it with continual gratefulness and joy. Listen UP:
Tuesday Trend Trap
Shake Loose From Culture
It is the trends of the world that trap us. We are a people addicted to excitement and that is why we follow after all the new trends and end up trapped. We need to shake loose from our culture and follow hard after God in times such as these.
“The human heart requires a prayerful plan to experience ongoing peace. A child of God is blessed by the vanguard of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God is out in front of a life to discern truth and provide wisdom. Good decisions result from the Holy Spirit on point.” Boyd Bailey
Victory Is Holy Alignment With God
“We are in a season where contentiousness will and is presently taking over the atmosphere of our world with lawlessness, unruly emotions and disrespectful attitudes. Without God, we will not endure it well. Without God’s Holy Spirit in charge of our lives, we are nothing but spiritual failures about to happen. In Christ, all things are possible and we can endure with great wisdom. In this season of life, the victory for us will be staying wholly-holy-aligned with the Holy Spirit, in a vital-vertical relationship with Jesus and in complete faith-trust and followship of the Father God’s plan. We need to hear from God first. There is no time like now that we need to “flesh out” cultural say-so and “truth in” God’s Word!” KimberlyMac
Be Careful Of Cultural Trend Traps
There are so many cultural trends that trap us in ways we had not even thought possible.
Be careful how you live your life, make sure you stay wholly-holy aligned with God. The enemy can sure twist things up. He can create such a warped deception that creates a cultural crooked place in this life for us. But God can make crooked places straight and we need to wait on Him so we don’t get caught up in the barbwire our enemy has so calculatedly and divisively laid out for us. Dig Deeper:

Tell Worry To Sit Down ~ The Word Of God Is Standing Up
Isaiah 41:10 Do not fear anything, for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand, a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation. The Amplified
Philippians 4:6-7 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. NLT
It is a good day to let our heart be overwhelmed with gratefulness to our AWE-GOD.
Psalm 116:1-9 When the Lord Saves You from Death
I love you, Lord! You answered my prayers. You paid attention to me, and so I will pray to you as long as I live. Death attacked from all sides, and I was captured by its painful chains. But when I was really hurting, I prayed and said, “Lord, please don’t let me die!” You are kind, Lord, so good and merciful. You protect ordinary people, and when I was helpless, you saved me and treated me so kindly that I don’t need to worry anymore. You, Lord, have saved my life from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. Now I will walk at your side in this land of the living. CEV
“Life brings a lot of chaos our way and we put so much effort in trying to solve the equation of our lives when Jesus is laying out the solution very simply. We can have paranoia and anxiety about things the way we see them, or we can listen to Jesus. The choice is ours to make. Jesus, thank you for this reminder and reality that we can know your voice and you know ours. We can follow You Jesus and where you are leading is eternal life. We will never be lost.” Brian Hardin Daily Audio Bible Commentary Of . Philippians 4:6-7
Thankful For God’s Holy Ground
“Oh the joy of Holy Ground! God is with us in that wholly-holy way of His and there is absolutely no fear in the Presence of God on Holy Ground. I don’t know about you, but I am so very grateful for the Presence of God and the Holy Ground it is for my life. I don’t know what life would be without the refuge of this Holy Ground of His Presence. Our God wants to be with us, wants to be at the center of our lives and this is why Holy Ground is so very incredible, it is the place of His Presence, a place of fearlessness, courage, boldness and a place where our faith is increased. On Holy Ground, we are undergirded with God’s strength as His Presence permeates our soul, saturating it hope, peace and joy. Holy Ground is a place where the promise of justice for all is encapsulated within the power and authority of God’s Presence. He is the King of Justice and His justice will prevail. God’s precious Holy Ground is seeded in victory and when we step out on it, the Holy Spirit stirs up our spirit with a strong heavenly hindsight of God’s faithfulness and His Providential Care of us. Salvation is the platform that raises up a standard of righteousness on God’s Holy Ground and God’s purposes are in play here and they are working for our good and His Kingdom glory.” KimberlyMac
In the reverent fear of the Lord there is strong confidence, and His children will always have a place of refuge. Amplified Bible
Thankful To Be Aligned With Respect
I am so thankful for the Holy Spirit, Who guides me and keeps me wholly-holy aligned with respect and AWE for God. Disrespect is such a lie of the enemy. We think it emboldens us, but instead it deceitfully weakens us, little by little until we fall in that horrible fateful way.
Thank You Jesus, You Have Given Me Light, You Have Rescued Me And Have Set Me Free. Listen UP:
Thankful God Loves Unconditionally
I am a pretty unique individual. I am thankful that God loves me for who I am. I think we mix up our “C” words in our relationships. We criticize our differences instead of celebrating our uniqueness. Be thankful that you are different from one another and enjoy that difference. If we stir up our gratefulness and our attitudes are one of thanksgiving then there is no room for a critical spirit in our lives.
Did You Devour God’s Word This Week?
When I discovered your words, I devoured them. They are my joy and my heart’s delight,for I bear your name, O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies. NLT
Feed Your Spirit
Lord I pray that Your Word will become our hearts delight and joy. It is so good for us, may we spend time in Your living powerful Word. We need to feed our spirit. Now that sounds weird. No it is true. We have got to get used to feeding our spirit and soul with the Word of God. The Word feeds our faith, which enlivens our hope, which strengthens our belief and helps us stay focused on the invisible God and not the visible situation which may not be going our way.

“As the world sees success, it is the achievement of a social status, completing a goal, reaching an objective or the achievement of an action in a specified set of time. The way God defines success is so much different than the way the world does. Success to those in the world means achieving something that is useful in this life on earth. Success as God sees it is something that is achieved that is of infinite, eternal value in this life and in the life to come. That is a huge difference indeed. The Bible describes success in a much different way than the world does.” Author Jack Wellman
This Is How We Walk In Success
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.”
“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
May The Power Of Jesus Christ Be In You, May He Be Your Miracle Today. May He Always Be Your Success.
“My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.”
Pray Up~Hope Up~Live Up
Pray Up To God Almighty In The Name Of Jesus And He Will Saturate Your Soul With One Of The Most Successful Things On This Earth, His Peace.
Please, O Lord, let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant and the prayer of Your servants who delight to reverently fear Your Name, Your essence, Your nature, Your attributes, with awe]; and make Your servant successful this day and grant him compassion in the sight of this man the king.”
