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

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.

Prayer to Overcome Low Self-Esteem


Lord, create in me a clean heart and renew my spirit in righteousness. You formed and fashioned me according to your will and council. I am fearfully and wonderfully made and have been forgiven, made clean and reconciled to you by your grace. I am the temple of your Holy Spirit and you abide in me forever. You have chosen me to be one of your own because I was delivered from darkness into your marvelous light. Your scriptures declare that those who reverence you Lord are secure. You are a refuge for your sons and daughters and you surround me with your hedge of protection. Thank you for enabling me to walk in boldness. Your righteousness covers and keeps me from stumbling. The wicked run away when no one is chasing them but I am not afraid because you are my helper. You declare that I am above and not beneath. I am the head and not the tail and your loving kindness is my shield.

You hold me by your right hand my Lord and my God, and tell me not to fear because you are with me. I have your new mercies each day and you supply me with everything I need for life, peace and godliness. I am a branch connected to the vine. You are the vine and I am the branch connected to your life that flows through me. I am part of a chosen generation. I am a special person called a citizen of your holy nation. I am your ambassador. I am a representative in this world. I have faith, gentleness, self-control, and the fruit of the Holy Spirit dwells in me. I yield each day to my inheritance of your peace, liberty and glory. In quietness and confidence is my strength. You are for me and more than anything that can come against me.

Thank you for the indwelling presence of your Holy Spirit that helps me in any weakness. When I pray, He makes intercession to you in my behalf. I do not place my abilities above your strength because I rely on you. My confidence rests in the knowledge that you are my helper. So I have no need to live in fear of any challenge to my mind, body, soul and spirit. My self-esteem is not diminished. I have overwhelming victory in my life. That victory is through faith as I love and worship Jesus Christ. Each day I approach you with thanksgiving, praise, worship, prayers and supplications. I can ask for anything that pleases you and I know that you hear my voice. Thank you for your love, strength, peace and confidence. You show me everyday that I am your son/daughter and you are my God.

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.

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.

Some Mountains


No one is exempt from challenges. When we are confronted with circumstances that hinder progress or success in life, health and well-being, those challenges are often referred to as mountains. Many obstacles may appear unsurmountable and cause us to fear and/or resign to hopelessness. But we can take comfort in Mark 11:23 that says, “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”

I have experienced favorable results many times by declaring this scripture over my life. But there have been instances where I wondered about the mountains that didn’t move. Proverbs 3:6 says “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”

When you seek God’s direction, you will find there are some mountains that have to be climbed. These are challenges you must endure. For instance, you may have to learn new tasks to keep your job. Or if you become ill, you have to treat your body differently, and experience therapies to achieve physical and emotional healing and wholeness. As you learn how to navigate, ascend and descend this mountain it becomes a testimony to share with or help another person. 2Corinthians 12:9 — “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

God might tell you to go around some mountains. A company I worked for in the early 70s had job openings in a technical classification. I was a secretary and the new jobs preferred applicants with education or skills and experience in the technical field. I really wanted to do something new and increase my income but was told I wasn’t even qualified to apply. So I enrolled in a technical school taking a certificate course in the evenings in basic electronics. I was the only female in the class and I was often challenged by the course, instructor and classmates, but that didn’t deter me. Upon completion, I added my certificate to the job application. A few weeks later, I was promoted and worked as a technician for many years with that company. Isaiah 30:21– “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.”

There are some mountains that demand that you turn around and go the opposite direction. God and experience with trying to traverse this mountain will show you that trying to align yourself with some people, places, events, and associations will lead to ungodly soul-ties, toxic relationships, violence, addictions even sin and death. Psalm 18:17 — “He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.”

Some mountains are not yours, meaning they are not your assignment. These mountains may be far beyond your spiritual maturity and you are not to challenge or contend with them. Be still, cover yourself with prayer, praise and worship the Lord and watch what He will do. 2Chronicles 20:15–“And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”

Titus 3:9 —“But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.”

As long as we prayerfully consider the challenges, the mountains that beset us, God will give us an answer for what we must do about them. James 1:5 —“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”

1John 5:14-15–“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.”

Letting Go of Offense


Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace,
good will toward men–Luke 2:14 (KJV)

Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way. –James 3:2 (NLT)

If something has been said or done to offend you, it is good to know that you can call upon the Lord through prayer. He is faithful to answer. He is faithful to come to your rescue. Holding onto offense has the potential to create bitterness in your mind, soul and spirit. It is easy to yield to anger, rage, seek revenge or bear grudges. But it is sin to repay evil for evil or hold malicious intentions in your heart.

When you accepted the forgiveness of sin, iniquities and transgressions through the sacrificial blood of Jesus Christ, then be determined to yield to the Holy Spirit. He is the precious, infallible gift you received when you said yes to becoming a son or daughter of the Kingdom of God. The Holy Spirit strengthens and enables us to forgive others. He gives us the grace and patience to deal with difficult people. Abiding in the love of God is your source of love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance.

Prayer: When I am Bitter


Lord when my soul is bitter I seek your deliverance and peace. As I cry out for your mercy, liberate me from the pit of corruption and cast all of my sins behind me. Create in me a clean heart and renew my spirit with your love and righteousness. Refresh me by your Holy Spirit. You have forgiven me by your great mercies and unfailing love. With the enabling power of the Holy Spirit, I am patient, kind and forgiving of others. You give peace to my soul as I choose the wisdom and knowledge of your truth.

I am not envious of others and do not harbor strife in my heart because it produces confusion and evil. Bragging or amplifying lies is deceitfully wicked. Carnal, sensual and evil conversation does not flow from my lips because it lacks wisdom. Hatred stirs up strife and contentions but love covers all sins. Dig up and empty out everything in me that is rooted in bitterness. Fill the empty places in my heart with your love. Abiding in your grace and favor destroys the root of bitterness and keeps it from springing up again. Abiding in your love delivers me from defilement.

Thank you for delivering me from bitterness. Thank you for delivering me from anger and wrath. My soul is released from the captivity of a brawling nature. My mouth no long speaks evil and I have put away malicious thoughts. My conversations are righteous and pure. Daily I show meekness and wisdom through obeying your word and walking in your ways. You have ordered my steps and with joy and gladness I follow your pathways with all diligence. Thank you for the abiding fruit of your spirit. It is your love, grace and peace that flows freely through me to others. I bless others as you have blessed me.
