Monday Meditation

He rescued us from so great a threat of death, and will continue to rescue us. On Him we have set our hope. And He will again rescue us [from danger and draw us near]. 2 Cor. 1:10 (Amp.) You know what God can do for you by remembering what God has done for you. When you face obstacles, reflect on God’s track record in your life. Believe that if He did it before He can and will do it again. Let your faith be anchored in Him no matter what comes your way. Trust God to deliver you and preserve your life. You are still here today because God has kept you. He has protected, guarded and sustained you. He is your deliverer and answers your spoken and unspoken prayers. Your future is orchestrated by Him and all that He has planned and desired for you will come to pass. Do not fret or become distracted by the intimidation of the enemy. God will guard you and fight your battle. You will not be devoured, conquered or destroyed. Every plan of the enemy will be shattered. God will cover you and give you victory. Put your faith and trust in Him, remain prayerful, hold on to the promises of God and press forward. Place all your hope in Him. God’s got this. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon

Be persistent and devoted to prayer, being alert and focused in your prayer life with an attitude of thanksgiving. Col. 4:2 (Amp) Have a steadfast and consistent prayer life. Be committed to seeking God’s face at all times. Center your mind and heart on Him. Thank God for the things that could’ve happened that He protected you from. Consider all that He has done in your life and the things you have today that you prayed for yesterday. Thank Him in advance for all that He is going to do. There is always a reason to give God praise. An attitude of gratitude inspires a prayer life seasoned with praise. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon

Monday Meditation

Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his presence continually. 1 Chron. 16:11 (NRSV) Sometimes when you are going through the storms of life you may feel depleted and tired. When you feel weary or weighed down remember God will carry you and all your burdens. Press your way into His presence by silencing all the background noise in your life and spending time with Him in prayer, worship and reading HIs word. Allow Him to refill and restore you. Whatever is trying to tear you down, God will use it to teach you how to trust Him even more. What was intended to break you, God will use it to build you. Press in and watch your pressure be lifted by the One who loves you the most. Don’t worry, God will empower you to continue to press on. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon

Intercessory Prayer

After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before. Job 42:10 (NIV) Too often our prayers are self-centered. As you lift up your personal concerns, never forget the needs of others. Pray for everyone, not just those near and dear to your heart. Pray for those who’ve hurt or disappointed you. Pray for them like you would pray for yourself. As you lift up others in prayer God will answer your spoken and unspoken prayers. Attend to the needs of others and God is faithful to take care of you. God still answers prayers and miracles do happen. Always believe and continue to intercede. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon

Anchored Hope

But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. 1 Peter 3:15 NIV. Our hope in God and His faithfulness helps us to persevere in our darkest hours. A heart anchored in faith desires for others to share in the safety and security that keeps them steady during the storms of life. When we share the reason for our hope it is a witness to others of the hope that is available to them. Our testimony can encourage others. Share your faith journey with love in an effort to lead others to the One who loves us all. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon

Monday Meditation

Be kind and helpful to one another, tenderhearted [compassionate, understanding], forgiving one another [readily and freely], just as God in Christ also forgave you. Eph. 4:32 Amp. There is an element of forgiveness that is anchored in unconditional love. Love for God, others and yourself that defies unhealthy plans of the enemy. As we meditate on this verse today, remember to truly forgive others of all transgressions as God has freely forgiven you. Don’t forget to forgive yourself as well for any wrongdoings you have committed. It is impossible to authentically love and be loved while harboring regret and resentment in our hearts. When we don’t forgive it weighs us down and forgiveness sets us free. Forgive today and walk in your healing. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon

Monday Meditation

Lord as I meditate on your word today, I pray my life will represent you in every way. Search and cleanse me as you prune my heart. Hold me together when I’m falling apart. Reignite my passion and rekindle my fire. Your will for my life is all that I desire. If I should stray lead me back in the right direction. When others see me let them see you in my reflection. I’m so grateful that you stripped me from all that was old and made me new again. You transformed my life and forgave all my sins. My life is an example of your love and grace. My heart belongs to you and no one can ever take your place. Help me to live a life that truly loves others the way you’ve loved me. Let your love flow through me unconditionally. Let my heart be a replica of yours as I strive to live a life pleasing unto you. I’ve surrendered my life to you and I know you’ll see me through. Thank you for your new mercies that continue to flow. I seek your face daily as I go and grow. ADaubon

Monday Meditation

Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and sustain in me a willing spirit. Psalm 51:12 (NRSV) When your choices lead you astray, you learn the pleasures that lured you in the wrong direction, quickly strips you of the joy you were chasing. Our true joy comes from the salvation of the Lord and He will restore all that you’ve lost. He pursues us with an everlasting love. His love draws us back to Him, because we are never beyond His reach. He will reestablish you and give you all the support that you need. I pray that wherever you have been led astray, your path will return you back to the One who loves you the most. As you soak in the faithful love of God, your desire to love Him in return with your whole heart and your life will be rekindled and renewed. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon

Monday Meditation

 Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. Romans 12:12 (NRSV) We have hope in Christ Jesus. We can believe that He will fulfill every promise He has spoken over our life. When trials and tribulations come, have limitless faith in the God that you serve. When you are in distress, pain or going through a difficult season of any kind, remember you are not alone. Know that He will remain steadfast and faithful to you with an everlasting love. Don’t be swayed by anything that comes your way. Cry out to God, seek His face, stand firm, flatfooted, lean in and press forward. All of heaven is behind you, the Lord goes before you and the Holy Spirit is within you. Don’t become overwhelmed and have no fear, because God will give you the power, wisdom, authority and the anointing to persevere. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon
