Created to Worship…

20200804_083157

Good morning, Precious Family:

I want you to know that you were created for a purpose, a season, and a reason. Some people’s season is a lifespan of 80 years, some 70 years, some just a few days. Every single person, no matter what your past looks like, was created to live a life of worship.

It’s not about how you look or what you wear. This life of worship is about how you live. Our lives, as Christians, are the storybooks of our relationship and worship of Christ.

21 “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming(A) when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.(B) 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know;(C) we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews.(D) 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come(E) when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit(F) and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit,(G) and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.

Go in peace, love, and strength, while praising and serving the Lord.

Glory to God in the Highest!!!

Good morning, Family:

I greet you with the neverending love of the Lord. May we seek to allow our lives to be used for God’s glory.

13 Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”

Make holiness a lifestyle and a choice. We are the elected ambassadors for the Kingdom of God.

In Christ,

Rev. Marcia Davis

Am I My Brothers Keeper?…

Brothers-keeper

Good morning, Precious and Divine Family:

I greet you with love and joy, in the Lord,  this morning. I woke up to the Lord bringing up the question, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Family, the answer is a resounding YES!

Unlike Cain and Abel, we have a responsibility to the wellbeing of our brothers and sisters. We dont have to look alike to be family. We dont have to talk alike to be connected. We dont have to agree on everything, but we do have to walk in love.

Our responsibility, as Christians (being and walking in the image and example of Christ), is to love one another. We are responsible for our brothers and sisters. Love is the greatest command.

Now Cain talked with Abel his  brother; and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and  killed him.

Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?”

He said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?”

10 And He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood  cries out to Me from the ground.

Walk the walk in love, mercy, boldness and grace. May God be with you always and may the evidence of Him walking with you be apparent to all.

In His amazing love,

Rev. Marcia Davis

Weather Forecast…

5day

Good morning, Precious Family:

I pray that you are well and blessed. My prayer, for all of us, is that we walk in love and obedience to the Spirit of the Lord. I also pray that we walk in the supernatural anointing of grace and mercy for ourselves and the people we encounter.

From day to day, our Christian walk is different. Some days are easier than others, but every day has been ordained by the Lord. Today, we thank God, ahead of time, for the people, situations, and encounters that we will have.

Here in Covington Georgia, the sun is shining outside right now and the skies are blue, but it calls for storms and rain later today. I am prepared, because I keep my umbrella in the truck. In the same way, I take time to commune with the Lord, so that I can receive whispers of what is coming for today. I like to call it my “spiritual forecast” time. I encourage you to set aside time with God, before you start your day, so that you can receive your own “spiritual forecast.”

Jesus Prays in a Solitary Place

35 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.(B)

Go with God. Let the Light of Christ shine brightly within you.

Battle Cry…

artworks-000239885478-2l9px5-t500x500

Good morning, Divine Family of God:

I’m so grateful for you and for the reason that God allowed you to come in contact with Sacred Journey Devotionals. For whatever reason that the Spirit of the Lord allowed our paths to cross, I give glory and honor to Jesus Christ, our Sovereign Lord and King.

The Spirit of the Most High God has revealed something to me and has charged me to address it.

It is with the authority, power and dominion of the Blood of Jesus Christ; the sacrificial and Redeeming Blood of Jesus that breaks yokes, destroys strongholds, and sets captives free that I can stand.

It is with that same authority, as a child of God and a believer in Christ, that I come against every demonic spirit, demonic thought, demonic stronghold of anyone or anything that comes in contact with this devotional. You will have the residue of Jesus over you.

In Jesus name, I break the chains of the enemies of God. In the name of Jesus, I cast out every spirit that is not aligned with the perfection of God. In the name of Jesus, I speak every demonic-root to be dried up and destroyed. In the name of Jesus. I stand, with the body of Christ, and take my place as a gatekeeper.

Family, open your mouth and boldly proclaim your God given authority in Christ. Take your place. Stand your ground and defend the land where God has placed you against the enemy. Stand strong.

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.(A) The weapons we fight with(B) are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power(C) to demolish strongholds.(D) We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God,(E) and we take captive every thought to make it obedient(F) to Christ.

Take your places on your knees, in your prayer closet, laying prostrate on the ground or standing up and walking through your house. We have All been assigned a territory. As soldiers of Christ, we have a job.

Walk in your authority,

Reverend Marcia Davis

 

Thank You, For Your Service…

3016

Good morning, Family:

I pray you are well and at peace, in Christ Jesus. This past weekend we lost two powerhouses in the Civil Rights Movement. Senator John Lewis and Reverend C. T. Vivian. Both men served our country and God the very best way they could, sometimes even in the face of death.

I honor you both of you and thank you for your many years of service to God and man. Senator Lewis and Reverend Vivian wanted the world to be a better place. I’m sure it would have been easier for them to stay silent and wait for someone else to do something. They heard the call and accepted. I am grateful that they used their lives to help make the world a better and more loving place.

May we learn from their example, just as Paul encouraged the Philippians:

Final Exhortations

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,  will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace  will be with you.

Go in peace, while praising and serving the Lord.

Humble is the Way…

1-Peter-5-6

Good morning, Family:

The Lord greeted me this morning with the scripture below. The Spirit of the Lord wants so much for people to humble their hearts and turn to It for counsel and guidance.

Pray for your family, be sure to include yourself in the prayer. Pray for our local, national, and world leaders, that they would seek the Lord, for guidance and direction.

As much as the scripture below has a blessing, it also has a curse. As you read the scripture, make it your prayer. It is always good practice to pray using the Word of God as a template.

55 “Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.
Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
and you will delight in the richestof fare.
Give ear and come to me;
listen, that you may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
my faithful love promised to David.
See, I have made him a witness to the peoples,
a ruler and commander of the peoples.
Surely you will summon nationsyou know not,
and nations you do not know will come running to you,
because of the Lord your God,
the Holy Oneof Israel,
for he has endowed you with splendor.”

Seek the Lord while he may be found;(
call on him while he is near.
Let the wicked forsake their ways
and the unrighteous their thoughts.
Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.

Go in peace and obedience, while praising and serving the Lord.

Bridge of Light….

Greetings, Beloved Family:

I pray that your heart and mind are focused on God. During this time in our communities, country and world, there is so much happening. One thing I hope we understand, as a people, is that only love can fix certain problems.

When we have gotten in our own way and attempt to do things in the way of the world, the result is that we compound the problem.

Love is the great connector. Only love can be the stepping stone across the bridge to aide in understanding the situation.

Why does love open doors and build bridges? Because love takes our agenda out of the way. Love is patient, kind, long-suffering and so many other characteristics that call for us to put down our weapons of words, thoughts and actions.

Ask God for a renewed heart that is filled with the love of his heart and mind. Step out on faith and walk the bridge of light that is lined with true agape love.

May your footprints lead others to the path of love. Go in peace, while praising and serving the Lord.

Rev. Marcia Davis

Even When It Hurts…

1-John-4-19

Good morning, Family:

I’m going to jump right in to the devotional this morning. Love, and the act of showing love, can sometimes be one of the hardest things to do. Love is easy when someone shows you love. On the other hand, love can feel like the hardest action to demonstrate,  when your heart is hurting.

How do we love through pain? How do we love in the face of hurt? How do we live a life of charity, when charity is very last thing on our mind? We must cast our cares at the feet of Jesus. We must pray for God to surround us with peace and patience. We must ask to see the situation or person through the eyes of God.

Trust me, I know the concept of “turning the other cheek” is one of bible passages we sometimes would like to forget. Today is that day for me, so this message is just as much for me as it is for everyone else. (As I stated before, I am only a vessel through which the Holy Spirit writes. I say, “ouch or that was for me” most of the time too).

The Master’s Call…

speak-lord

Good morning, Family:

I pray your strength and faithfulness in the Lord. As Christian, above all else, our first relationship is with the Lord. May we always be able to hear the Master’s Call.

Go in peace, while praising and serving the Lord, with obedience and faithfulness.

Rev. Marcia Davis
