Lord, those who know Your name, who have experience and acquaintance with Your mercy, will lean on and confidently put their trust in You, for You Lord have not forsaken those who seek (inquire of and for) You [on the authority of God’s Word and the right of their necessity].

So Lord thank You that You are a God of Mercy and Lovingkindness, of Compassion, of Comfort, of Grace, of Peace, of Truth and Faithfulness, of Reliance, of Trust, of Confidence, of Glory, of Miracles, of Healing, of Health, of Blessings, of Forgiveness, of Order, Decency and Structure, of Hope, of Wonderfulness, of Specialness, of Perfection, of Preciousness, of Excellence, of Encouragement, of Freedom, of Deliverance, of Riches, of Strength, of Beauty, of Purity, of Creativity, of Creation, of Goodness, of Support, of Refuge, of Supply, of Stability, of limitlessness, of Counsel, of Help, of Advocacy, of Justice, of Reconciliation, of Restoration, of Wisdom, of Salvation, of Redemption, of Family, of Unity, of Awesomeness, of Amazement, of Wonder, of Greatness, of Joy, of Protection, of Relationship, of Fruitfulness, of Fearlessness, of Boldness, of Courageousness, of Thank Worthiness, of Worship Worthiness, of Love Worthiness, of Praise Worthiness, of All Power, of All Authority, of Holiness, of Righteousness, of Self-Sacrificing, of Humility and of Victory. Thank You for the cross Father.

I declare that Your character and blessing is manifested in our land, through the Holy Spirit, which the Lord King Jesus came to show us, for if we see Lord King Jesus we see You Father. I declare that the people turn away from their idols and praise You, for You have blessed us and I speak that in Jesus’ name. Lord You are the One Who keeps us, for unless You build the house they labor in vain who build it. Our eyes are on You, Lord, for with You Lord is plenteous redemption. Through You, we push down our enemies. Through Your name we tread them under who rise up against us. Lord I declare and enforce what You did on the cross into this land. You Father, were in Christ reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Yourself, not counting up and holding against [men] their trespasses [but cancelling them] and committing to us the message of reconciliation of restoration to favor.

I thank You Father, that You said-For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest upon the land of the [uncompromisingly] righteous, lest the righteous(God’s people) stretch forth their hands to iniquity and apostasy. So I proclaim peace in the land. I speak grace-grace to all the turmoil that is going on. I speak peace into all the anarchy and chaos in the streets of the United States and in the world. I bind the forces of darkness and their power over the people and command them to release their grip on the minds of the people, in Jesus’ name. I release the power of the Holy Spirit to bring peace and justice. As there is peace in heaven, I pray Your will Father, that there be peace in our streets, here on earth. Your will be done, that there will be the peace of the kingdom in all these chaotic situations.

Lord, Your works are great, awesome and fearfully glorious. By the greatness of your power Your enemies submit themselves to You [with feigned and reluctant obedience]. Lord You rule by Your might forever. Your eyes keep watch over the nations; I declare that the rebellious because of Your power and intervention, that they do not exalt themselves. I declare that the abominations of the nations cease, for a throne is established and made secure by righteousness. I declare that righteousness rule in this nation and all nations around the world. I bind the powers of darkness whose plans are against righteousness, in the areas affecting the Church and the impending decisions of how the officials want us to run the churches.

I proclaim and declare that JESUS IS LORD in this area and that the gates of hell will not prevail against the Church in Jesus’ name. THE LORD’S WILL BE DONE CONCERNING THIS SITUATION! I proclaim and declare that the Lord bring the counsel of the nations to nought and that He make the thoughts and plans of the people of no effect and that HIS WILL BE DONE IN JESUS’ NAME! Father bring all those who are against Your plans to the saving knowledge of the wonderful Lord King Jesus, just as Paul who was so vehemently against the church, you stopped him in his tracks in a mighty way! And he was radically saved! Stop these ones Lord and and let them be radically saved in Jesus’ name, Amen!

So I speak to the strongholds of their minds and the spiritual blinders over their eyes and heart and declare that Jesus is Lord and I command you to loose them in Jesus’ name that they see Jesus as Lord and receive their salvation in Jesus’ name, Amen. I speak and declare salvation throughout the land in Jesus’ name! Father, I also speak encouragement to the law enforcement teams around this country. Give them hope Father by Your Spirit and reinvigorate them in Jesus’ name. Thank You for Your Goodness, for it’s the Goodness of God that lead men to repentance. I proclaim and declare Your goodness is upon the land.

Father, thank You that Your Holy Spirit is working in hearts and minds to bring the peace that passes all understanding into people’s lives. Glory to You Father, I ascribe all glory, honor, and wisdom to You. Allow Your wisdom to enter into the minds and hearts of the officials of the land, especially the President, leading and guiding them. I pray protection for the President. I declare that the evil bow before the good, the wicked who stand suppliantly at the gates of the uncompromisingly righteous, in Jesus’ name. I glorify You Father, for Who You Are! I praise You for Your Goodness and Grace and for giving us Your Greatest Love, Who is Christ Jesus! Thank You Father, for Your Mercy and Lovingkindness endure forever and Your Truth and Faithfulness endure to all generations.

Glory! Bless You Father, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Psalm 100: A Psalm Of Thanksgiving

THINKIT by Dan

Connect in the spirit with Father God by thanking and praising Him through Lord King Jesus. Beloved child of God we are to worship Father God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). Now that we live and have our very being in the Lord King Jesus (Acts 17:28), we can do that. Psalm 100 is a great way to get a connection with Father.

The first thing Psalm 100 tells us, beloved child of God, is to make a joyful noise to the Lord. Throughout the psalms the psalmist tells us¬† that God loves a joyful sound and a loud one also. An example of this is in Ps. 47:5. It says God has ascended amid shouting, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet. Ps. 71:23 says my lips shall shout for joy when I sing praises to You, and my inner being, which You have redeemed. Ps. 81:1(b) says-shout for joy to the God of Jacob! So beloved child of God,¬†cultivate a joyful praise in your alone time with God and let your spirit be lifted up to Father in a state of gladness. Beloved child of God, Father loves a joyful sound as it says in Ps. 89:15-Blessed(happy, fortunate, to be envied), are the people who know the joyful sound [who understand and appreciate the spiritual blessings symbolized by the feasts]; they walk, O Lord, in the light and favor of Your countenance! So don’t be bashful before God, beloved child of God, to make loud noises in praise to Him.

The second point Psalm 100 tells us is that we should serve the Lord with gladness. We serve a joyful God. He wants you to be happy in His Presence. In His Presence is fullness of joy(Ps. 16:11). Even in troubles as in John 16:33, He tells us to be of good cheer, for He has overcome the world. Being of good cheer will help you to serve the Lord heartily. Colossians 3:17 says-And whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in dependence upon] His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him. So ask the Father to help you cultivate a joyful praise that is needed in even in troubling circumstances. Glory to God, beloved child of God! It will help you to do what Colossians 3:23 says-Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily(from the soul) as [something done] for the Lord and not for men.

The third point Psalm 100 brings out is-Come before His Presence with singing! Ps. 47:6 says-Sing praises to God, sing, sing praises, Sing praises to our King, sing praises! This verse mentions singing to King Jesus four times in one verse. How important this singing is to God! There is wisdom in singing to God. For one thing in Ps. 8:2, it says that praise silences the avenger (NIV). You become filled and stimulated with Holy Spirit by speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with voices [and instruments] and making melody with all your heart to the Lord. So beloved child of God- SING TO GOD AND BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT(Eph. 5:18-19)!

The fourth point Psalm 100 tells us is to be aware that we are the sheep of His pasture. He is our Great Shepherd King. This is saying for us to submit to His will in our lives and let Him lead and guide us, for He made us and not we ourselves(Eph. 2:10). We are the Lord’s, Who is God. We are not our own(1Cor. 6:19). The fifth thing Ps. 100 says is to enter His gates with thanksgiving and enter His courts with praise. These are spiritual sacrifices, we as new testament priests are to offer up to God(1Peter 2:5, Heb. 13:15). Ps 95:2 says also-Let us come before His Presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to Him with songs of praise! So be be thankful and say so to Him. Bless affectionately praise His name(Ps.100:4).

Lastly Psalm 100 says we can recognize and say to the Lord that He is good and that His mercy and lovingkindness are everlasting and that His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations. This speaks of His grace. Connect to Father by telling Him these truths for His Word is truth(John 17:17) and we must worship Him in spirit and in truth(John 4:24) and you do that when you speak these truths. It glorifies Him. Glory to God! Beloved child of God, praising and thanking Father through our Lord Jesus(Eph. 5:20), will lift your spirit. Ps. 61:2 says-lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Get connected to the Rock through thanks and praise, beloved child of God! Be blessed.

Prayer: Dear Father, thank You for your goodness and mercy and lovingkindness you show toward me. Thank You for the Lord King Jesus Who redeemed me back to You. Thank You for Your marvelous Holy Spirit Who glorifies Jesus in me. I give You all the praise and honor that is due You! Help me to worship You in spirit and in truth and to cultivate a joyful praise unto You by Your Holy Spirit through Lord King Jesus and let me worship You in the beauty of holiness. I thank You for it now in Jesus’ name, Amen.
