I was glad when they said unto me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.” (Psalms 122:1)
Joy unspeakable joy!!
You know, it does not take for Sunday to come around for us to praise God, to have a joy come over us as we are filled in abundance with the presence of the Lord. We can achieve that all week long when we go before His presence.
This is something I like to experience everyday as much as possible. You can too.
Moments upon standing back up on my feet after my morning prayers, a smile surfaced. My heart began to melt in the love of Christ. This longing to commune with Him started dancing inside of me. Wow. “It’s not even 6am yet and I want to sing and dance! Thank you Lord! Today is going to be awesome. Yessss!”
I encourage you today to allow the Lord to minister to your heart. If a scripture or song comes over you just let it pour out and saturate you. Don’t fight it. Sing a new song unto the Lord. Thank Him for this new day you have. Think about where He has brought you from, think about the things that could have stolen your life but God blocked it. Praise Christ in all things be it good or not so good. You are alive. You are here today for a reason. God has allowed His sun to shine down on you one more day. The Word tells us: Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!” (Lamentations 3:22-24 NKJV)
Lift up your voice and give thanks to Jesus!
Below is a song that I would like to share with you all. It’s been around a long time and I still find myself getting goosebumps and teary-eyed as I lift up my hands and praise the Lord. He has been better to me than I have been to myself. He never turns His back on us when we choose to turn our back on Him. He is the same yesterday, today and forevermore. I am nothing without Him. I cannot take this journey in life by myself expecting to come out fine. Snares are waiting to trap us; waiting to keep us bound and hopeless. The enemy is a lie! Rebuke the lies of the adversary; the evil one and tell them to flee. Nothing is too powerful or strong that the Lord cannot set us free from. Claim freedom! Claim your liberty and sing! Tell the captives that you are free and it’s all because of Jesus!
Praise ye the Lord everyone! Praise Him for He is truly worthy of it all.
Scriptures of praise:
Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory.(Psalm 98:1)
Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, bless His name; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day. Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples. For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised; (Psalms 96:1-4)
Sing to the Lord a new song, And His praise from the ends of the earth, You who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, You coastlands and you inhabitants of them! (Isaiah 46:10)

Amen! 🙂 I have experienced these past two days deliverance from old mindsets, pain, frustrations, low self-worth, etc from my childhood. There is so much freedom. Heaven is beginning to become a reality “set your mind on things above” (Col. 3:2). The Holy Spirit kept telling me that I could be free… after reading through Isaiah 40-64… I began to really have faith after reading the testimonies and prophecies of what God can do. My faith had been shaken for awhile, and accusations from the enemy came like an onslaught stating “God has forgotten me”.
Oh the lies. BUT THE TRUTH is stronger 🙂 because it is Christ, and He holds us all together. Healing never felt so food. I feel like a new born baby. The enemy has tried to come and steal my joy today heavily…but I told him “you can’t steal someone’s inheritance” 🙂 1 Peter. Then, I received an email about your new blog post, and I read it & just SMILED. Just the encouragement I needed. Love you! 🙂
My Lord My Lord!!! How I thank Thee for all You’ve done and will continue to do in and through Ash. Glory in the highest!
My friend…. If you could only see my face right now! 😄 I am beaming from ear to ear with smiles. Your heart has poured out such a testimony that I am rejoicing with you! God surely has His timing in order. What you needed today and for any other, you have been sustained through it all.
The enemy is a lie! You ARE victorious in Christ Jesus! You ARE a child of the Most High! You said it right ” you cannot steal someone’s inheritance” That stirred my inner being and I am a battle buddy with you on the line telling the adversary to “Back Up! You have no place here.”
I can’t thank The Lord enough for you. I’m so glad that we have connected. I’m so sorry that I have been behind in commenting on the last post messages you sent. Life got a bit busy last week so I am catching up! You keep on keeping on. God has not forsaken you as you know. Tests will come. Always remember to stay on guard and wear the Armor of God to equip you. You can do all things in Christ who strengthens you. I have hope and I believe in His power and strength to carry and guide you.
Love you much! 😊💗
