Good morning precious damsels of the most high. We thank God for a new and glorious day to partake in his awesome presence. I hope you had a great night?
The topic we’ll be treating today is ‘To Know you Lord’ because this was what I received last week when I was informed I’ll be leading the prayer today. There will be a short exhortation on the topic, an encouraging section and finally a covenant blessing section.
Topic: To know you Lord
We thank God for the grace to complete the 7 days fasting and prayer to destroy every delay we might be experiencing in our lives and as you know the word was coming powerfully everyday. This goes to show that there is so much more in God.
What is the motive behind all the prayers we pray? Is it so we can accumulate material things and store up earthly treasures? Matt 6:19 If yes, that’ll be so sad. The reason should be that we may know this God. So today we’re going to seek God from the depth of our hearts. We will seek him with our minds, hearts, souls, body and spirit.
Below is a lyric of a song:
To know you Lord in all of your glory
To know you Lord in all of your ways
To know you Lord in the fellowship of your suffering
How I long to know you Lord
I pray that may this be our utmost heart desire in Jesus mighty name.
“I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death, so that one way or another I will experience the resurrection from the dead!”
Philippians 3:10-11 NLT
Another reason why we want to know him is because we love him. “But if any man love God, the same is known of him.”
1 Corinthians 8:3 KJV
So our heart cry today above all else is GOD I WANT TO KNOW YOU MORE!
-Start with thanksgiving. “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.”
Psalms 100:4 KJV
-Thank for the blood he shed on the cross of Calvary for our sins. “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,”
Hebrews 10:19 KJV
-Ask for cleansing with the blood of Jesus. Halleluyah
-Father please reveal yourself to me in an unusual way.
-“asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God.”
Ephesians 1:17 NLT
-Father please Crucify every work of flesh in my life. Gal 5:19
-Lord let your word be embedded in my spirit. “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”
Psalms 119:11 KJV
-Pray as the spirit leads
-End with thanksgiving
Halleluyah to the lamb of God.
The next section
I feel a need to encourage everyone. You see I don’t know what you’re going through and I don’t know what is causing you so much pain. I also do not know what is making you shed tears in your closet but I know the one that knows. Girl, God’s got chu! Be encouraged. Everything will work together for your good because you love the Lord. Rom 8:28
You see the bible says in this life, there will be trials and tribulations but BE OF GOOD CHEER … Why? Because ‘I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD. John 16:33
You know we sometimes go about our daily business acting as if we have everything covered. But here’s a pat on your back to let you know you are loved and appreciated. And the most high GOD loves you. Yes you!
-“Whatever happens, my dear brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord. I never get tired of telling you these things, and I do it to safeguard your faith.”
Philippians 3:1 NLT
In conclusion, let’s go to Deut 28:1-14 these are the blessings God will bestow upon us if we
“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:”
Deuteronomy 28:1 KJV
In seeking and wanting to know God, he’ll give us some instructions with his voice (this could be through any medium) and if we hearken I.e. Obey we’ll have access to all the blessings in Deut 28:1-14. Please take time to read it.
-oh lord please give me the grace to fully obey Your voice even as you reveal yourself to me.
“Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.”
Proverbs 7:15 KJV
May this be our testimony in Jesus name
