All you need is a broken heart

—this is when David received this remarkable revelation of the sacrifice God really wants: All you need is a broken heart!

Ultimately, it’s not the sight of an animal sacrifice that moves God to grant forgiveness and to receive David back into His embrace. It is David’s broken heart—the spirit that had grown tender enough to be pained by sin.

There’s no need to be embarrassed if you can’t bring God a jolly heart every time you feel the need to praise Him. There’s no shame in not being able to afford an expensive gift as though you could “buy God off” and purchase forgiveness.

Just bring Him your heart, broken though it may be. That’s what He has wanted all along.

“I give You my heart as Lord of my life, O God. Even when I am sorrowful…even when I am less than I want to be…I praise You as a God who accepts the open and honest heart over any material sacrifice I could bring. In the name of Christ my Savior, Amen.”

DREAMS INDICATING WITCHCRAFT IN YOUR LIFE

READ: Exodus 20:24 (Altar for Covenants); Matthew 12: 43-45; 2 Chronicles 1:6-8; Genesis 15:8

PRAY AGAINST THE ALTARS OF THE DEVIL

1. Prayer against tormenting spirit
I send the fire of the Holy Ghost to burn you tormenting spirit.
“Father, every evil voice speaking against my destiny, my marriage, promotion, children, every evil voice that is around my home trying to put evil / silly thoughts in the lives of my family, every evil spirit that comes against my job that cause me to make mistakes or lose my job, I rebuked them in Jesus’ name.
For every evil spirit who dig pit for me, I speak forth that they will fall on that very pit they dig.
God, I break all evil covenants against me and my lineage. In Jesus name’ Amen.”

2. Prayer against spirit of setback, delay and anti-progress
“Father God, I notice this demon, this devil (name the spirit ex: Jezebel spirit), I subdue it through the power of the living God. Because greater is He that is in me than that bully, that demon, that devil that is trying to block me. In Jesus’ name Amen.”

3. Prayer for Increase
“Father God, Your Word declares in Psalms 115:14 that you will increase me more and more, my family and children. Father God, Your Word declares in Proverbs 11:21 that thou hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.”

MORNING PRAYER

Lord, open my spiritual eyes throughout the course of this day, amplified my spirit of discernment so I could now see beyond the physical, I could see beyond the pretenses, I could see the devil just waiting for an opportunity to come at me, but I come at that devil, and speak to him, “You devil, I bind your powers and I pray that you would come to disgrace and dishonor…” or to anyone that comes up against me.

Today, we speak your Word oh God. We decree it, we declare it according to Psalms 7, your Word says, those same wicked people, the ditches that they have dug for others, they will fall onto it themselves. Their own wicked dealing shall fall upon their heads.

According to your Word in Psalms 109:17, “He that loveth curses or cursing, let it come upon him. I speak the unadulterated Word of God and when I speak that Word into the realm of atmosphere, into my surroundings, into the invisible realm, then that realm which I love of which the origin of all things must submit to the Word of God.

From dawn to 5 am today—I dreamed of:

Two spirits (one from heaven and one from earth) trying to reach each other’s hands to join force that if joined together could result to great/ very strong force…so powerful. Until, their hands met. They hold hands tightly though there’s unseen force trying to separate them—until their hands parted…got separated. Instantly, when that happened, a fire from heaven hit the earth killing some people. In the physical realm, I could see this as shooters or terrorists enter a school and started shooting the students. This means, what will take place in the spiritual realm will also happen in the physical.

I could see the very spot in the middle of the campus with a swimming pool, a fire from heaven hit the ground burning people standing, leaving no trace of their bodies…totally burned!

Then, chaos took place. People panicked. I could see bullets flying in the air, people are being hit and killed. But, we couldn’t see the shooters. I wanted to escape so I prayed to God, “Lord protect me and get me away from here.” So, I crawled while the bullets and bombs are still pouring from the sky. Good thing, I reached a gate at the back of the school. Look like an exit gate for me. However, there are strict guards/ armed men positioned there. I prayed again and they were blinded just like what happened to Peter in the book of Acts. They couldn’t see me coming out through the gate. Amazing! Then, I immediately managed to take a ride away from that place.

Eventually, out of my control, I was transported (by unseen force) like what happen to Philip in the book of Acts, back to the school where chaos is happening. I was told by the Holy Spirit to rescue those who are trapped there who was His.
Then, my body was transported back to the place I saw a fire come down from heaven like a time travel. This time, it was different. While the chaos continues, a mat and pillow cases suddenly appeared right on the spot where heaven and earth collides. I just knew in my spirit that I need to pray with them in that very place though bullets and bombs dropping could be seen everywhere. Hence, by divine intervention, we are not harmed. We are shielded by unseen force from heaven.

Next, I lead few young people to escape. We headed to the front gate. Though there are requirements in order for us to successfully exit in a legal way, and that is to bring a black marker to write something. If the bar code will turn green that means we can’t go out, since green means CR (comfort room/bathroom). So, we looked for the nearest comfort room to relieve (throw off the dirts from our body like urine, etc.)
As we’re heading back to the gate to flee for safe refuge, we prayed. We thought if the bar code turned RED that means STOP and we can’t do our safe exit. So as we pass through the X-ray as of airport X-rays with NUPs (non-uniform personnel) eyeing on us, the bar code turned black which coincides our marker. Finally, we’re safe away from that chaotic place.

WISDOM:
1. Our prayer is our shield.
READ

Ephesians 6: 16

, “16Above all, lift up the [protective] shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”

2. Our prayer is like an umbilical cord connecting the physical/earthly realm to the spiritual/heavenly realm because in

Philippians 2:9-11

, it says, “9 For this reason also [because He obeyed and so completely humbled Himself], God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus [b]EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW [in submission], of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and that every tongue will confess and openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord (sovereign God), to the glory of God the Father.”

3. Our constant prayer could be a strong force like a fuel for company of heavenly armies in the spiritual realm against the enemy/evil forces.

READ Ephesians 6:18

“With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints.”

READ

Ephesians 6:12

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

4. We must be cleaned, relieved from all the dirts inside of us to come out safely.

READ

Mark 2:22

“And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins—and the wine is destroyed, and so are the skins. But new wine is for fresh wineskins.” -ESV

5. The wisdom of the marker (black marker and the GREEN bar code which signifies to relieve from dirt in my dream) revealed to me quoted in ….

Revelation 21:27

“Nothing that defiles or profanes or is unwashed will ever enter it, nor anyone who practices abominations [detestable, morally repugnant things] and lying, but only those [will be admitted] whose names have been written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.”

In every idle words that come out from our mouth, we’ll be made accountable of it. (Matthew 12:36)

Prayer:
Lord forgive me/us from all the foul, unworthy, idle words we utter or nonsense talk I even entertained today, and in the past. Anoint and sanctify our mouth and help us speak life to anything that has breath as according to your Word.

I cancel all the negative declarations or utterances of other people towards/ on me which is not in line to your purpose/destiny upon me/us. In Jesus’ name Amen.

Book Review: Look What God Can Do!

Author:  Jess Jennings

This book is about the lives of mission heroes, some of which I’ll mention here.

William Carey (1761- 1834) — I’m so blessed by the life of this man of God for his undaunted dedication as he obeyed his call from God to go to India leaving all the comfort of life. Life in India was not easy for him, in fact his son died while they’re battling for financial problem and struggles with the work laid on him since many are opposing his work.  During that time, since there were no Indian converts, he alone buried his son. No one, help him dig, make a coffin for his son…he buried him himself.  This made him indignant because they’re traditions and false religion made them blind. He became a pastor at age 24 in a small Baptist Church.  One of his greatest works was not just building the first and biggest university in India, but his success in ending “Sati”, the tradition in India of burning the wives alive together with their dead husbands. Many Indians oppose him, including the killing of some Indians who accept Jesus, since as they believe they had betrayed their fellow Indians, their traditions and customs as they accept foreign teaching from a white man. Besides persecution from Indians and the government itself, he also was finally opposed by her wife.  I learned something from their story, that when the other one is called, the one must also be called because they are one. His wife at the very beginning of his call, had reluctantly joined him saying, “God might be calling you, but not me.” So, when they begun to experience crisis, her wife begun to complain and discouraged him. To make the story short, his wife became insane and died. Moreover, in spite difficulties, he’s the first missionary to India who translated and published the Bible in Bengali (language in India) starting in the book of Matthew, then John until the whole bible with the help of other missionaries, until he and Shirley, who later became her wife, build a big school that opened gender equality in India, since women used to be unschooled; only boys/men were allowed to study.  His humble beginnings could be, only after 7 years, he had led the first Indian to Christ. Others may have given up and gone home, but he’s convinced that “only God can open blind eyes. Only God can convert lost sinners.”

Hudson Taylor (1832 – 1905) — “The mission was formed by prayer, nourished by prayer and is still sustained by prayer month by month only in answer to believing prayer.” — This man of God give birthed his mission work by prayer. Prayer was the foundation of all he did. Like other missionaries, he had compassion to reach the lost souls and he “wrestled with God to send with him workers to the field since China is very big and populated. Personally, I appreciated his preparations. His first six years and half were spent in learning language, culture and becoming immediately involved in the ministry. Wherever God sent us, we must relate to the people, including adapting to dress, food and lifestyle. Though he’s small in stature, his giant faith, stands as one of the influential Christian leaders since the apostle Paul. In contrast to today’s youth who see missions as some type of adventure, for him missionary was shown to be a life of sacrifice. His first strategies were meeting the people’s physical needs through medicine and following up on those who showed interest in the Gospel. Noteworthy statistics on his 6th journey to inland China was that they visited 58 cities, towns and larger villages in 25 days. Foundational years provided many spiritual markers for Taylor’s life like practical experience, divine revelation and providential leading. He said, “As I looked upon the thousands of unreached and saw the darkness and sin of the interior, the comforts of Shanghai faded away.”  When he went back to Europe, he was unable to bear the sight of hundreds of Christian unoccupied. This became his driving force to pray to God for more workers for each of the 11 provinces in China. He believed that God would call them out and He would provide for and sustain them.

After 20 years on the field, he went through a deep spiritual experience which others called, “filled with the Spirit”, others called, “experiencing the deeper life.” Taylor called it “the exchange life.” But before he experienced this great blessing, there were many days and weeks of inner struggle and dryness. He goes on to describe how much he struggled with temptation and how wicked his heart was. Thus, he prayed to the Lord to make him more holy. There was hungering and thirsting for more of God. The Holy Spirit was preparing Hudson for a deeper work and more fruitful work and did not depend upon his own strength and effort, but on abiding to Christ. Also, in the practical things of life, he had a new peace. Troubles did not worry him as before. He ha d learned in a new way to place all of his cares upon the Lord. He began to give more time to prayer. Instead of working longer, he began to go to bed earlier and rising earlier so as to give more time to Bible study and prayer. Thirty years after his death the numbers of Chinese converts multiplied to over seven hundred thousand; it was because he started the work and totally surrendered to Him!

 Amy Carmichael (1867- 1951) – Missionary work offers little that could be called glamour. What it offers is a chance to die. Then why would I want to become one? One of the inspirations I have had to pursue into missions is by learning about the lives of missions in the past and present, inspiring me a lot, rekindling the fire within for the lost souls, and one of them that ignite me, a woman like me, is Amy Carmichael. We knew that when we respond to this calling, we need to be ready to the chance of picking up the cross and follow Christ, dying to self, ambitions, career, money, family, or like, even to the prospect of marriage. Amy said, “Missionary work is a grain of sand, the work untouched is a pyramid…Face it. Look and listen, alone with God. Then go, let go, help go, but never, never, never think that anything short of this is being interested in missions.”

Yeah, it’s not about the interest, but it’s the compassion for the lost souls, and the burden God put in your heart, that if not fulfilled, you’ll not be complete; your life is not worth living.

I could go on writing the rest of the missionaries who sacrifice their lives to the point of death, but all of those biographies were all the same: the heartbeat for the dying world, the lost souls to be won for Christ! What greater sacrifice could we give compare to what Jesus did for us on the cross? Do we have the right to complain of the great works when these works are but only a speck compare to how He did for us, saving us from eternal death?

To God be the glory!
