Abba Father, I lift my eyes, hands, heart, mind, spirit and soul to You and give You thanks. I give You all the glory, honour and praise. I ask you to forgive me of all sins whether it be of thought, word or deed.
Today, I ask You to prepare me for what Your Spirit is to say to my spirit. May I not miss a single thing but be open to receive and ready to take hold, of every Word. All scripture has been given to feed us, your people, with full knowledge and understanding of You and the world laid before us. May my spirit be in a state of acceptance to what your women and men say, as they expound on Your Word. Help me as I study the Word, via them, so will study to show myself approved and be anointed by Your Words. I want nothing more than, to correctly analyse and divide Your Word, as it flows. I ask that You protect me from all disruptions, distractions or situations, that the enemy will bring my way to interrupt what I am to receive. I come ready to be filled to an overflow and set on my way for the new season that I am being called to.
To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion—to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit—that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.Isaiah 61:3 (AMPC)
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you [the priestly nation] have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you that you shall be no priest to Me; seeing you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children.Hosea 4:6 (AMPC)
By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?Matthew 7:16 (AMPC)
Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!2 Corinthians 5:17 (AMPC)
Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth.2 Timothy 2:15 (AMPC)
Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].Hebrews 11:1 (AMPC)
20 Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament),
21 Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages).
Amen (So be it)Hebrews 13:20-21 (AMPC)
