Building Something For God


Do you believe you are here on this earth for a specific purpose? If you said yes without hesitation, then that’s great. Is there something that you know will be successful and please God, but you can’t figure out how to get it accomplished? That’s good because I’m going to send you on a treasure hunt. The mine is in the Bible… in the book of Nehemiah. I’m quite sure you know everything in the word of God is treasure.

So expect the book of Nehemiah to give you the pattern for achieving the manifestation of your purpose. There are 10 points to look for throughout the book. I am prayerful you will find the keys for successfully “Building Something For God.”

Here are your points to look for:

1. Purpose

2. Plan

3. Permission

4. Passport

5. Provision

6. People

7. Protection

8. Production

9. Presentation

10. Presence of God

The Line to God is Never Busy


We have a God who is always available to commune and fellowship with us. Some people who have yet to develop this kind of relationship with Him tend to rely on others to motivate, encourage and pray for them. But He has given us the Holy Spirit to dwell in us, to lead, guide and direct us into all truth as He reveals Christ Jesus. God enables us to live the original intent that He had for His creation in the beginning.

It is amazing how modern technology has captivated us so much that many men, women and children spend the majority of our time glued to their electronic devices. They are seeking and sharing information, thoughts, desires, rants and intentions. I am glad that some look for and share the things of God.

On land-line telephones, if you want information you dial 4-1-1. This 411 is a local and long distance directory service. The operator will look up phone numbers that you request for a person or a business. Even a person search is available if you provide them with the phone number but don’t know what or who it’s for. 411 used to be free but now there is a cost for using the service.

But if you want information from the Lord, and a prophet is not around to give you a word, then God has provided His 4-1-1. His number is Deuteronomy 4:11 – “And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness. v12 And the LORD spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice.” He wants you to know that when you want to speak to Him and hear from Him, He is available. He wants to fellowship with you any time, everyday.

If you have a problem with your telephone you can dial 6-1-1 to report it for repair. The phone company will determine the cause and fix the problem in their office or send a repairman to the cable box or your home. But it may take several days for it to be restored.

But if you think God hasn’t seen your issue or know that you have temporal needs, then He has given you a number where you find out what is available to and for you. His number is Deuteronomy 6:11 – “And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full.” Declare it, believe and receive it. You have a promise and the benefits of being His son or daughter.

In an emergency, you would call 9-1-1 for any situation that requires immediate assistance from the police or fire department, or ambulance service. But if you have a spiritual challenge to your faith, hope and confidence that only God can rectify, He has provided us with His promises, old testament and new. His number is Deuteronomy 9:11 – “And it came to pass at the end of forty days and forty nights, that the LORD gave me the two tables of stone, even the tables of the covenant.” His new testament number is Hebrews 9:11 – “But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; v12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.”

Give God a call day or night — His number is never busy.

Pray to Overcome Weariness & Burdens


John 14:16-18
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Through the knowledge of God and my Saviour Jesus Christ, grace and peace is multiplied in my life. Lord your presence goes before me to give me rest. I dwell in a peaceable habitation, in sure dwellings and in quiet resting places. I have no fear because there is no fear in love. Lord, your perfect love removes all fear because fear brings torment. I am perfected in your love and I am not wearied or burdened. I submit myself to your will, I resist the devil and he has to flee from me. The Holy Ghost is my comforter who you have sent in the name of Jesus. He teaches me all things that I need to know and helps me to recall what you have said to me.

My heart is not troubled nor afraid because I have your eternal peace. I never forget the things you have taught me and I store your word in my heart. By your word, I have a long and satisfying life. You satisfy my soul in weariness and refresh my soul in sorrows. When I cry out, you hear me from your holy heaven and save me with the strength of your hand. You are my refuge, strength and a very present help in the times of trouble. You deliver my soul from obstacles and challenges that break my peace. I cast all my burdens upon you Lord and you keep me from being swayed or moved. My heart is strengthened and you are my portion forever when my heart and flesh is weak. My soul can rest in the Lord and I sleep peacefully because I am your beloved.

REFERENCE SCRIPTURE: 1John 4:18, 2Peter 1:2, 2Peter 3:14, Exodus 33:14, Isaiah 26:12, Isaiah 32:18, Isaiah 48:18, James 4:7, Jeremiah 31:25, John 14:26-27, Proverbs 3:2, Psalm 20:6, Psalm 39:13, Psalm 46:1, Psalm 55:18, Psalm 55:22, Psalm 73:26, Psalm 116:7, Psalm 127:2

A Prayer When Feeling Insecure


Although an army might come up against me, I do not have a fearful heart. Warfare might come to the threshhold of my door but it does not overtake me. My trust and confidence is in you Lord. It is better to trust in your promises rather than putting my confidence in man.

Father you are my confidence and you hold me up when I have been attacked, overtaken, overwhelmed by people, places, events or the inexplicable. You are the Holy Lord and God who reveals the truth. My eyes are open to see the truth revealed in your scriptures. My ears are open to hear the truth of the spoken word.

All of my confidence and strength comes from being quiet and still in my mind. My confidence and strength comes from being quiet and still in my heart. My confidence and strength comes from being quiet and still in my soul. My confidence and strength comes from being quiet and still in my spirit. When I am quiet and still, I have your rest and peace. My rest and peace is in knowing what you can do.

I take comfort in knowing that you have begun a good work in my life by showing me purpose and destiny. None of my labor as your servant is cut off or in vain. I see the reward and harvest of what you have planned for my good and my future. I see the reward and harvest of what I hope for and my expected end. Your presence causes me to abide in your unfailing love. Your presence helps me to abide in your grace and favor. Your word and your presence helps me to rest, be still and know your peace. You Lord God are my strength and resting place.

I wait for your rescue that is never far away. Each day I renew my hope in your word. In the midst of sorrowful and tearful circumstances my lips praise and worship you.

Your love is unfailing and it comforts me. You have sent the Holy Spirit to abide with me and He is my helper and source of comfort. Your presence assures me of your love and peace, and restores my soul. I am encouraged by your word and consume it as my necessary food.

Lord you know every burden, trouble and weight that I must endure and you fill me with patience. Confidence in your deliverance helps me mature naturally and spiritually. In turn, I know how to minister and encourage others to live in harmony and peace. Through confidence in you I have liberty, a tender heart and a humble attitude. With one mind I sympathize with others. And I love others as my brothers and sisters. You are the God of love and peace who is always with me. You are the source of all mercy, comfort and strength. Thank you for helping me to be more confident. I praise you, the Father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Connect to God


crutches-habakkukOften I have heard people refer to God as a “crutch” and they use the word in a negative connotation. Sometimes it is to make light of the believer’s faith, trust and reliance on God, or give the impression that God relishes a following of zombie-like, dysfunctional people incapable of a significant life. Those who intend to mock us with usage of the word “crutch” fail to understand the utility and functionality of the crutch.

Crutches are mobility aids used to counter a mobility impairment or an injury that limits walking ability. –Definition source: Wilkipedia

When you have been afflicted and decide to change your posture and connect to God, He should be welcomed as a crutch. His promises are your support and strength to compensate for every weakness. He is a crutch to facilitate your physical and spiritual healing. He comes along side you for natural and spiritual development, change, growth, and maturity. God is your crutch for any situation. (from “Talk to God with Affirmations of Faith”)

“Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”–Isaiah 46:4 (NIV)

Prayer to Overcome Negativity


Lord God, I repent for thinking or saying things that oppose what your scriptures say is the truth. Your word has declared who you are and who I am when I abide in you. I belong to you and I am your son/daughter. I am filled with your Holy Spirit. You have not given me a spirit to be afraid or timid. By your spirit I am strong, loving and self-disciplined. I understand that there are natural and spiritual challenges in the world but I take heart that I have your peace. In the midst of trials, tribulation or sorrow, I have the assurance that you have already overcome what confronts me. I already have victory over any circumstance because the Holy Spirit lives in me. Your spirit is greater than any spirit that is in the world.

You lift burdens from my thoughts, motives and intentions. You break every yoke of bondage from my shoulders. No weapon turned against me will succeed. Every voice raised in accusation against me is silenced. I enjoy the benefits you have extended to me as a servant of the Lord. I am vindicated from unrighteous judgment. I am justified, found not guilty, because of the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. Negative words do not proceed out of my mouth because my thoughts are renewed by your truth. I know in whom I live, move and have my very being.

I have the enabling ability to exercise authority over every challenge and challenger. My life is protected by your power. The word of God is my weapon to remove any stronghold of human reasoning that opposes God. I rest in the knowledge that you can end every mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual captivity. Your word destroys false and unrighteous arguments. Rebellious thoughts are captured and realigned to the obedience of the truth and Jesus Christ. Evil and negative thoughts are replaced by faith in you. My victory is through faith in the promises of your word and causes me to inherit your blessings. Thank you for being my God and I am your son/daughter.
