We are down to one week remaining in the consecration. How proud of yourself are you right now?
My pastor, Harold V. McPherson, sends out an agenda each Saturday before the beginning of each week of the consecration. It helps the believers focus our prayers and get us on one accord. I want to share a few of those items with you this morning. We will be praying along the same lines together.
PRAY FOR A FRESH DETERMINATION TO DO GOD’S WILL AT ALL COST
PRAY THAT WE PERSONALLY EXPERIENCE AN INCREASE IN REAL MIRACLES, SIGNS, AND WONDERS
PRAY THAT WE HEAR GOD LIKE NEVER BEFORE
PRAY THAT GOD USES US BEING HOT TOWARDS GOD TO LEAD OTHERS TO CHRIST
In my reading these areas of focus for our prayers, I realized that there is one thing we all need more of for these things to take place. We need to know the truth revealed to us in the Word of God. And by knowing it, I mean we need to live it as it is revealed to us.
Read 1 Peter 1:7-25
I highly recommend reading this passage in the Amplified Bible. These words from Peter become clearer to the reader when it is amplified. This passage emphasizes that the result of obedience to the truth of His word is the administration of grace to us that ordains us for kingdom work. But the key ingredient here is “knowing the truth”. This knowledge is revealed to us through the person of the Holy Spirit.
Today’s Faith Sight Word
REVELATION. We are not talking about the book of Revelation. We are not merely talking about the knowledge of God or of His Son Jesus Christ. Here, I am referring to the application of knowledge (which is wisdom) that comes as a result of our spirit bearing witness with the study and understanding of God’s Word. This is how you know the truth. You must study.
“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15
Recipe for the Fast
Strawberry and Banana Oatmeal
1/2 cup of Steel Oats
a handful of fresh strawberries
chopped walnuts or pecans *optional
In a blender container (we use our Ninja), add the dry oats, strawberries and banana with alkaline water. Blend until liquidity. Add water as needed for desired density. Heat the stove to medium heat and add the mixture to a 2 qt saucepan. Cook the oatmeal as directed on the oatmeal package. Remove from heat. Add oats to your bowl and sprinkle with dates and stir. Top with nuts if desired.
Repeat as many times during the day as you remember it.
The word of God is a lamp unto my feet and light on my life’s pathway. I am a doer of His word. I apply what I know to my life and the result is manifested in the earth. I obey the word of truth. I know the truth and it is evident in my works.

Just in Case You Ever Wonder by Max Lucado
This book is about the love of God shown through the love of parents for their children. I chose this book for today’s post because it is crucial for us to accept the love of God in order for us to receive His truth and to obey it. If you think of little children, they seem to understand and obey their parents much more easily when they feel loved. When they don’t, they rebel. I pray as you read this book to your little ones, you will remember that you too are a child of God and that it is important for you to never doubt or wonder how much he loves you. Your faith determines our level of revelation.
