Lord help us to daily renew our mind with the Truth of Your Word. Give us fresh vision, a renewed fire. Renew our understanding, refresh our spirit. Give us Your insight, for Your vision for our life. Lord You tell us, where there is no redemptive vision, the people perish. Open our minds to Your Wisdom, and Understanding.
Direct our steps all the days of our life. Renew our strength! Cause us to mount up on eagle’s wings. We who wait upon You Lord, shall have our strength renewed. Mounting up on eagle’s wings. We shall run and not be weary; shall walk and not faint! You oh Lord; go on before us; You sent Your angels out, to prepare the way for us. You Lord, are able to make a way for us; in the wilderness, altho there seems to be no way. Lord; You e’en make crooked paths straight, renew our strength!
Father we also take ev’ry thought captive, bringing them into the obedience of Your, Most Holy Word.For we are aware; the weapons of our warfare are not carnal! They are mighty through God; for pulling down the strongholds of the enemy. We’re able to cast down any, ev’ry high imaginations, which exalt themselves against the Knowledge of God. We take ev’ry thought captive, bringing them into Your obedience, in Jesus Name we pray.
I’m just using this as an illustration. Scripture tells us we need to renew our mind. How do we renew our mind, is a question often asked. The answer is found in Scripture, where it is written: -“the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, _ _ _ .”(see 2 Cor 10:3-8 NKJ).
We are also encouraged to write the vision down. For when the Lord gives a vision, whether through dreams, inspirational thoughts, scripture or prompted thru the need we see around us. Whichever way, the Lord chooses to reveal His plans for our life. We’re reminded that He knows His plans, which He has for us. Plans of a future and of success. He desires for us to prosper in health even as our soul prospers.
He says whatever we set our hand to do, we need to do with all our might. All His promises are yes and amen in Christ Jesus. He promises us, whatever we set our hand to do shall prosper and be successful. We need to regularly seek His Face! We need to acknowledge the Lord in all our ways, then He shall direct our paths (see Pr 3:1-8).
As I mentioned in my last post; We need to seek the Lord’s face in whatever we do. The Lord will not do anything, without first, allowing, revealing His Secret to His servants, the prophets. This is at times, when the Lord raises His prophets up, to let the church, the world know, that which is about to happen. There are also times, He reveals to His prophetic teams, what is to happen immediately, in the near future, and maybe a few years, before the occurrence.
Your prophetic people are e’en at times called to be watchmen. Some of them are ardent prayer warriors. The Lord reveals His plans, to them. Remember with Abraham, He revealed to his servant, what was to become of Sodom & Gomorrah, before His judging of them. God is Holy, Pure, Merciful and Forgiving. He judges the sin. He shows Mercy to whom He shows Mercy.
6 And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord! the Lord! a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in loving-kindness and truth,7 Keeping mercy and loving-kindness for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but Who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children, to the third and fourth generation.8 And Moses made haste to bow his head toward the earth and worshipped.(Ex 34:5-7 Amp).
14 And the Lord said, My Presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.15 And Moses said to the Lord, If Your Presence does not go with me, do not carry us up from here!16 For by what shall it be known that I and Your people have found favour in Your sight? Is it not in Your going with us so that we are distinguished, I and Your people, from all the other people upon the face of the earth?17 And the Lord said to Moses, I will do this thing also that you have asked, for you have found favour, loving-kindness, and mercy in My sight and I know you personally and by name.18 And Moses said, I beseech You, show me Your glory.19 And God said, I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim My name, The Lord, before you; for I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy and loving-kindness on whom I will show mercy and loving-kindness.((Ex 33:14-20 Amp)
We urgently need to seek, the Lord’s face, in whatever we do. This is one of the things we need to act upon, when planning our goals and vision. The Lord has given each of us a dream, vision, goal, mandate for our life. He constantly renews our strength, when we urgently seek His Face. Often much prayer is needed, to receive God’s direction, guidance for our lives. He renews our dreams.
