Prayed…
Thank You, Father, for Your great love and favor
Your heart is beating for us
Your favor has gone before us for this year and beyond
Increasing year after year as we finish out our course on this earth
Scripture focus…
(3) All he did to prosper in his hand so joseph found favor in His sight. Gen 39:3 (AMPC)
(12) You have granted me life and favor, and Your providence has preserved my spirit. Job 10:12 (AMPC)
(12) For You, Lord, will bless the [uncompromisingly] righteous [him who is upright and in right standing with You]; as with a shield You will surround him with goodwill (pleasure and favor). Psalm 5:12 (AMPC)
(5) You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my [brimming] cup runs over. Psalm 23:5 (AMPC)
(5) For His anger is but for a moment, but His favor is for a lifetime or in His favor is life. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5 (AMPC)
(25) The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you; (26) The Lord lift up His [approving] countenance upon you and give you peace (tranquility of heart and life continually). Numbers 6:25–26 (AMPC)
(4) What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of [earthborn] man that You care for him? (5) Yet You have made him but a little lower than God [or heavenly beings], and You have crowned him with glory and honor. (6) You made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet. Psalm 8:4–6 (AMPC)
(4) Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption, Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercy; (5) Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle's [strong, overcoming, soaring]! Psalm 103:4–5 (AMPC)
(11) For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. .Jeremiah 29:11 (AMPC)
(3) Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).Jeremiah 33:3 (AMPC)
(22) I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one [even] as We are one: (23) I in them and You in Me, in order that they may become one and perfectly united, that the world may know and [definitely] recognize that You sent Me and that You have loved them [even] as You have loved. John 17:22–23
(46) And day after day they regularly assembled in the temple with united purpose, and in their homes they broke bread [including the Lord's Supper]. They partook of their food with gladness and simplicity and generous hearts, (47) constantly praising God and being in favor and goodwill with all the people; and the Lord kept adding [to their number] daily those who were being saved [from spiritual death]. Acts 2:46–47 (AMPC)
(15) But God's free gift is not at all to be compared to the trespass [His grace is out of all proportion to the fall of man]. For if many died through one man's falling away (his lapse, his offense), much more profusely did God's grace and the free gift [that comes] through the undeserved favor of the one Man Jesus Christ abound and overflow to and for [the benefit of] many. Rom 5:15 (AMPC)
(14) For sin shall not [any longer] exert dominion over you, since now you are not under Law [as slaves], but under grace [as subjects of God's favor and mercy]. Rom 6:14 (AMPC)
(17) For if because of one man's trespass (lapse, offense) death reigned through that one, much more surely will those who receive [God's] overflowing grace (unmerited favor) and the free gift of righteousness [putting them into right standing with Himself] reign as kings in life through the one Man Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). Rom 5:17 (AMPC)
(9) For you are becoming progressively acquainted with and recognizing more strongly and clearly the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ (His kindness, His gracious generosity, His undeserved favor and spiritual blessing), [in] that though He was [so very] rich, yet for your sakes He became [so very] poor, in order that by His poverty you might become enriched (abundantly supplied). II Corinthians 8:9 (AMPC)
(8) And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation]. II Corinthians 9:8 (AMPC)
(3) May blessing (praise, laudation, and eulogy) be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) Who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual (given by the Holy Spirit) blessing in the heavenly realm! Ephesians 1:3 (AMPC)
(7) In Him we have redemption (deliverance and salvation) through His blood, the remission (forgiveness) of our offenses (shortcomings and trespasses), in accordance with the riches and the generosity of His gracious favor, (8) Which He lavished upon us in every kind of wisdom and understanding (practical insight and prudence), Ephesians 1:7–8 (AMPC)
(16) Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, Who loved us and gave us everlasting consolation and encouragement and well-founded hope through [His] grace (unmerited favor), (17) Comfort and encourage your hearts and strengthen them [make them steadfast and keep them unswerving] in every good work and word. II Thessalonians 2:16:17 (AMPC)
(14) And the grace (unmerited favor and blessing) of our Lord [actually] flowed out superabundantly and beyond measure for me, accompanied by faith and love that are [to be realized] in Christ Jesus. I Tim 1:14 (AMPC)
(16) Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God's unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it]. Hebrews 4:16 (AMPC)
(4) But when the goodness and loving-kindness of God our Savior to man [as man] appeared, (5) He saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we had done, but because of His own pity and mercy, by [the] cleansing [bath] of the new birth (regeneration) and renewing of the Holy Spirit, (6) Which He poured out [so] richly upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior. (7) [And He did it in order] that we might be justified by His grace (by His favor, wholly undeserved), [that we might be acknowledged and counted as conformed to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action], and that we might become heirs of eternal life according to [our] hope. Tit 3:4–7 (AMPC)
(2) May grace (God's favor) and peace (which is perfect well-being, all necessary good, all spiritual prosperity, and freedom from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts) be multiplied to you in [the full, personal, precise, and correct] knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. (3) For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue). II Peter 1:2–3 (AMPC)
Continued Praying…
Thank You for the abundance of favor in each of our lives
For revealing the steps needed to take
Connecting and compacting us together in the body of Christ
For the ability to stand where You give us opportunity
Not coming behind, going above and beyond through Your sacrifice
Jesus, we magnify Your name today—Your blood always makes a way for us
Calling the things that are not as though they were
Not standing in second place but walking in Your grace
Overcoming every hindrance
You have chosen us and we have chosen You
Everything is new through You!
Word of the Lord came forth:
Just because You said in 2015, this must take place before the end of 2015, but it didn't, don't quit. Don't give up on your expectation and your confession. For I am not limited by years, I am limited by what you believe and what you receive. I am limited by your confession that does not line up with Me. So keep confessing. I will not be held back because 2015 has already gone by. For now it is 2016 but it is not different with Me. For My Word has been made true for you all the way through. Someone back when, 1988, confessed and believed that My Son was coming back. That's over 20 years ago. So, If you believed My Son was coming back in 1988 and He didn't come and You left Me, you made the decision to leave. I did not leave and My Word is true now as it was true then or in 2015 or 2016. So, keep on with that decision and that confession of faith and belief in Me. And it will (ha, ha, ha) come to pass the way I said it would, saith the Lord. I am for you. My heart yearns for you. Keep believing and keep receiving and it shall come.
