The Tesimony of the Victorious


Psalm 89:1–2 says, “I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever, with my mouth will I make known your faithfulness to all generations. For, I have said, mercy shall be built up forever, your faithfulness you shall establish in the very heavens.”

It’s so true that God’s Kingdom is a Kingdom of mercy. It’s also true that God opposes the proud who think that they can achieve His purpose for their lives through human effort and natural virtue. He does, however, give grace to those who know that only through Him can we find mercy and strength to finish our journey.

The testimony of the victorious is indeed a song, a lifelong song of His mercy. Think about this today: when the glory came to Solomon’s temple, they were singing this song, “God is good, and His mercy endures forever.”

Remember, my brother and my sister, it’s time to pray.

The Lord Does Not Disappoint


Today there are people all around the world trusting and believing God for victory. They’re trusting God for miracles, victories for their families, their bodies, and their circumstances.

I want to tell you today that the Lord does not disappoint those who call out to Him. The Lord Himself told us everyone who seeks will find, everyone who asks, it will be given, and to them who knocks, the door shall be open.

I’m so grateful to God that when we ask, we receive, when we seek, we will find the Lord, and when we knock for hope and a future, it’s going to open to us simply because of who God is. The Lord has given us a testimony of his faithfulness to encourage us and to cause our hearts to believe that He has a greater future for each of us than we have ever anticipated. It’s a wonderful life when life is born in God.

It’s time to pray.

If I Fell


Proverbs 24:15 begins, “Do not lie in wait, oh wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous. Do not plunder his resting place, for a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again.”

An old Beatles tune starts with the line, “If I fell in love with you, would you promise to be true?” I suppose the Christian version of this would be, “If I fell, God, would your promises still be true?”

The verse I read is not a license to sin but rather a promise that if our hearts are truly sincere, God will lift us up as many times as you and I ask for His help. Maybe you have fallen today. Perhaps you’re feeling hopeless. Open your spiritual eyes, and you will see His hand stretched out before you. Take it.

Remember my brother, my sister, it’s time to pray.

A Plan Bigger than Our Thoughts


I’m reminding you today that the plan of God is bigger than we can understand. The only way we can ever begin to lay hold of it is when we allow God to lift us up and allow Him to open our ears and in our hearts. It’s when we begin to delight in doing God’s will, even when it looks to be fearful and we don’t understand it, and even when God is leading us on an unfamiliar path.

We must trust His leading and His call on each of our lives because He is thinking something about us that perhaps we’ve not considered. Don’t lose sight of the fact that God is thinking things about you and about His church. He has a plan for the future, and that plan is bigger than our thoughts.

Join us every Tuesday night at 7:00 PM Eastern time at itstimetopray.org, where people from all over the world are gathering together, believing that we’re going to lay hold of the plan of God for the future.

Remember my brother, my sister, it’s time to pray.

You Will not be Put to Shame


I’m challenging you today to believe that if you begin to read the Word of God and allow God to speak to you and move forward in what God is asking of you. You will not be put to shame; no one will triumph over you. Your confidence in God will not be in vain.

He promises to be God to you. He will restore to you the years that have been taken away from you and where it seems like the enemy has come in like a devouring lion. He’s been chewing up your heritage, your family, your mind, your heart, your hope, and even your future.

But God says, “You turn to me, and I promise to turn to you, and I promise you that you will not be put to shame. None of your enemies will ever be able to say about you that you trusted in God, yet your enemies were able to triumph over you.” God promises to give you and to give me the victory.

To get this victory, it’s time to pray.

His Eyes Never Turn Away


Mark 4:37: “And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat so that it was already filling.”

Do you feel today like your boat is going down? Many years ago, I had that actual experience. While navigating choppy waters with a few friends, I remember the sudden fear when that final wave swamped and overturned us. We would have been in very deep trouble, but somebody had been watching us the whole time and came to our rescue.

Your good news today is that God sees you and will never leave you or forsake you. His eyes never turn away from you. You are the very center of His heart. Call out to Him and let His presence calm you and your heart and your situation today.

Remember my brother, my sister, it’s time to pray.
