The Apostle Paul became obedient to Jesus, he was more than willing to do whatever the Master told him to do. The Lord told Paul to go to Jerusalem, Paul knew by the Holy Ghost that he would be arrested when he arrived, but this did not move him. Paul knew that whatever they did to him he would overcome because the Lord promised him that He would supply all his needs supernaturally. After his arrest a church in Philippi heard of his plight and began to send him food and other necessities, in those days prisoners needed help from the outside in order to survive. At the great white throne judgement, the Lord will say to some of the folks, I was in prison and you did not visit me.
Philippians 1:7 You have after all, stuck with me all the way from the time I was thrown in jail, put on trial, and came out of it in one piece. All along you have experienced with me the most generous help from God.
Paul explains to the church at Philippi the benefits of partnership, he concluded his letter by saying this: my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ (the anointing of) Jesus. Another translation says, all of you are partakers of my grace. What was Paul’s grace?
2 Corinthians 12:9 Jesus said to me, My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ (the anointing) may rest upon me.
God’s grace to Paul was His supernatural power to help him overcome every attempt of the devil to stop his ministry and kill him. The devil had Paul stoned to death but he rose from the dead and preached in another town further away. Five times the devil had Paul beaten to within an inch of his life, but the grace of God rejuvenated him and he kept all his appointments. Recall the incident where Jesus got in Peter’s boat and told him to let down his nets for catch. Peter didn’t believe Jesus knew what He was doing so he let down one net that needed mending. They ensnared more fish than they could handle and they needed help.
Luke 5:7 Peter beckoned unto his partners, which were in the other boats, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the boats, so they began to sink.
Peter was a fisherman and he had partners in the business, so whether Peter caught fifty fish or five hundred fish, his partners were entitled to an equal portion. We are partners with Kenneth Copeland, Jerry Savelle, Jesse Duplantis and some others, we all are partakers of their grace. We are entitled to their revelations, their anointings, their favor and their prosperity. We must be very selective who we partner with, we never want to partner with compromisers, God will not favor those who altar His Word for any reason. Take the necessary time to see the fruit before you join yourself to any ministry. The ministers that cry and beg the most for money are usually the ones you want to avoid. But give special attention to those who are debt free and trust God to supply all their needs.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
