#23 – The Only Sovereign God

I AM not a man and MY word has no limitations. At MY word a nation is built or a nation will fall, soley by MY command. I am not your conscience or the conscience of your society. I AM the maker and the creator of all things.

Even the ability to question ME is an allowance from ME. I own the mercy seat, the moon and the stars. I own the best of you and I own the worst of you, simultaneously, both the great things and minuscule things are relevant to ME.

To live is to commune with ME, to breathe air is to enter fellowship. The light and the darkness submits to ME. The sun shines, because I say so. I am the LORD of all. The most beautiful day and the most hurtful days are yet, both mine.

This means, you are who you are because of ME. As the only Sovereign God, Heaven is mine, the earth is mine and YOU are mine! Like Job what you are facing is by design and nothing can harm you beyond MY purview.

Psalms 24:1-10
The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him. For he laid the earth’s foundation on the seas
and built it on the ocean depths. Who may climb the mountain of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? Only those whose hands and hearts are pure, who do not worship idols and never tell lies. They will receive the LORD’s blessing and have a right relationship with God their savior.

Such people may seek you and worship in your presence, O God of Jacob. Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter. Who is the King of glory? The LORD, strong and mighty; the LORD, invincible in battle. Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter. Who is the King of glory? The LORD of Heaven’s Armies he is the King of glory.

#22 – Let the Echoes

There is an echo, an echo of your past defeats. Do not listen. The old man is gone, dead, the new man is rising. You are different now and you will never be the same again. You are a new being: new mind, new heart and a fresh anointing.

It is a time to prune: people, passions and circumstances that hinder your progress. It will not be easy, but it will be necessary. Trust me to complete a perfect work in you. What some have said about you is true, but I AM Truth.

If you only knew the plans, I have laid up for you. It would overwhelm you. It would be beyond your capacity to handle, it would actually blow your mind. What I have for you, has been stored away, waiting for the day you are ready.

Let the echoes of your former failures, become the sound of a bugler’s horn calling you to attention and to begin operating in a mighty warfare for your new life, new hope and new dreams.

Colossians 3:5-11
Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry. For it is because of these things that the wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience, and in them you also once walked, when you were living in them. But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices, and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him – a renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all.

#21 – Do Not Chase the Fruit

Beyond what you believe, I AM Truth. Trust ME and not how you feel, I operate beyond your senses. As you pursue ME, the journey is internal, but the fruits are manifested externally, the fruit is for the world to see.

Do not chase the fruit, chase ME, the fruit giver. The hopes, the dreams, the passions are deposits from ME and are meaningful within ME. A life lived aside from ME, means little, I am the way, the truth and the life.

When you run to ME for your protection and your direction, you are wise. As you chase after MY heart, I will give you MY hand. When you seek MY counsel, I will clarify your mind, to think clearly and see clearly.

Say no more about your worries, speak what you want to see. Speak what I am placing in your heart. Speak MY promises and speak MY word. There is no need to chase fruit, to chase the temporary, you are rooted within the fruit giver.

John 15:14-17
You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me. You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. This is my command: Love each other.

#20 – Humble Yourself

Have you surrendered? Are you still working within your own power? Reasoning and strategy can only go so far. It is the anointing that destroys the yoke. The yoke of pain, bondage and fear exist in the spiritual realm and require spiritual warfare.

Use your weapons of praise, worship, the word, prayer, intercession and serving to defeat the enemy. Where I am sending you, there will be conflicts, these are your assignments. To find a resolution in the most difficult situations, to find peace when all have chosen war.

It is easy to make war or to avoid conflict altogether, it is difficult and requires a shrewdness to make peace. A Peacemaker is a divine role that uses skill, strength and a cunning power to establish a peace that can only come from the heavenly’s.

Surrender to the Peace Making power that I have placed inside you. Your plan is good, but a plan formed and forged by MY Spirit can be wielded to dash a mighty blow against the adversary’s strongholds.

1 Peter 5:6-11
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

#19 – You Are Free

Exchange your pain with ME. I will give you beauty for ashes. The pain can have meaning and set others free, if it is examined and filtered through purpose. The hurt shaped you, the suffering molded you, but it does not define you.

Every disappointment, every mistake, every defeat, every crooked place, every worry, every regret, every sin, every doubt, every shame, every weakness, every thought and every concern are extinguished. It is time to lay them at MY feet.

No longer will the past shape your future. You are free and do not owe anyone anything. You do not owe your family and you do not owe your friends. You do not owe a religion and you do not owe any relationship, your peace.

I AM salvation. MY eternal gift is liberty, not a bond servant or a slave you are a son and your freedom is a birthright. To live, move and to have being in the privilege of relationship with ME. Release the pain, accept the freedom.

Romans 9:18-23
Because of the weakness of your human nature, I am using the illustration of slavery to help you understand all this. Previously, you let yourselves be slaves to impurity and lawlessness, which led ever deeper into sin. Now you must give yourselves to be slaves to righteous living so that you will become holy.
When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the obligation to do right. And what was the result? You are now ashamed of the things you used to do, things that end in eternal doom. But now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves of God. Now you do those things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

#18 – I Value Souls

You can have it all, prosperity and peace, in ME. Compromise is not required. It is a matter of priority. Why worship the silver and gold? Worship the one who holds it all. In MY kingdom money is lowly and souls hold all the value.

In the world, mammon matters more than a soul. Money is the ruler of men’s hearts and minds. It is all they want, desire and chase. This is an empty pursuit. They pursue it, consume it and they hoard it, to find it is meaningless.

Have you considered, what the creator values? I gave you MY best: MY Breath, MY Spirit, MY Life and MY Wind. I gave you a soul, that was forsaken. Through love, I bought you back, for ME. You were bought with a price.

The cost was a life for many lives, not mammon. The highest value can be found in ME. The only things that have value are the things, that I touch and give life too! You, I have touched and you, I have breathe life into.

Acts 17:24-29
“He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in man-made temples, and human hands can’t serve his needs—for he has no needs. He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need. From one manf he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries. “His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him—though he is not far from any one of us. For in him we live and move and exist. As some of yourg own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’ And since this is true, we shouldn’t think of God as an idol designed by craftsmen from gold or silver or stone.

#17 – Evaluate Everything

Sow a seed, be pure, think pure, move pure & walk pure. Begin to remove darkness from your environment. That which does not produce life, must be cut off, immediately. Evaluate everything, what you see, hear & say.

In me there is no shadow of turning, so shall it be with you. Question all that you consume. Consider every relationship. Consider every thought process. Consider every behavior. Consider the origins of every dream.

The presence of darkness indicates an absence of light. Allow ME into every aspect of your life. I want to be GOD of your intents, motives and desires. Make ME LORD of even your fantasies. Make ME Lord over every passion.

No one is capable beside ME, to satisfy. I will satisfy, if you drink from ME. Drink from ME and never thirst again. Think on ME and you will have peace. Focus on ME and the confusion will become clarity.

James 1:16:-18
Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

#16 – Comparison

Comparison is slowly killing you. I have given you a race, a unique process and a specific goal. There are none like ME and there are none like you. Comparison has become your god. You are looking externally for your affirmation, but I AM in you and this is ‘ALL’ the affirmation you need.

I affirmed and confirmed you from the beginning. Your identity is preordained. Every stage is different, every lane is different and every race is not the same. You are blessed, based on what I can do through you and not on what you are able to do, aside from ME.

You are chasing a perfect version of You, a flawless version of yourself, but what I formed, from the ground of your circumstances is perfect and being daily perfected. I do the perfecting, not man. You do the planting and I will perfect the harvest.

Sow all that you are, into me, your mind, your body and your soul. You have been confused, through comparison by the enemy. He has you shadow boxing a reflection and an image that is not real and unholy. Stop believing everything thing you hear and see, listen to ME.

Psalms 145:17-20
The LORD is righteous in everything he does; he is filled with kindness. The LORD is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth. He grants the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cries for help and rescues them. The LORD protects all those who love him, but he destroys the wicked.

#15 – Can I Trust You

Can I trust you with wisdom? Do you have the capacity to represent ME and resist the urge to represent yourself. The secrets of every age are found in ME and I live within you, making you an extension of ME, within the earth.

MY eternal omniscience rests in you. If I give you the wisdom to setting the captives free, will you do it? Can you resist hoarding the knowledge, resources and the wealth? The power to free each generation is abundantly available, to those who seek it out.

If I expose you to the heavenly realms, will it make you arrogant or pious? With the power of life and death, accompanied by MY anointing, will you build MY Kingdom or a kingdom for yourself? These are questions of Faith and fidelity, can I trust you?

Will you deflect the glory and continue to serve? Your mantle is waiting. There is a great yield left untouched, because none are willing to reached for ME and reached for it. I have laid out a heaping harvest, waiting for a worthy steward.

Jeremiah 17: 7-10
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? “I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.”

#14 – Seek MY Reproof

I only have one action and reaction it is LOVE. Even in MY chastising and MY correction is LOVE. I love you when are right and I love plus grace when you are wrong. Love is in MY rod and also in MY staff.

A rebuke from ME gives life and MY discipline leads to life. Seek MY reproof and you will grow, acknowledge MY presence and you will thrive. There is pain in pruning, but this will produce more in you.

MY correction leads to growth and maturity. MY discipline is a reestablishing and a second chance. Seek the LOVE in my admonition and you will live. The hand of rebuke and the hand of restoration are the same.

A fool thinks he is wise and will fight to be right, no matter the wrong he has done. Be wise and accept the responsibility, in both the good and the bad behaviors. To accept due correction will bring you honor from the Lord and men.

Proverbs 17:10-12
A single rebuke does more for a person of understanding than a hundred lashes on the back of a fool. Evil people are eager for rebellion, but they will be severely punished. It is safer to meet a bear robbed of her cubs than to confront a fool caught in foolishness.

#13 – Anyone Can Complain

The world is full of critics and criticism has become a religion. Be mindful that the evil one is a critic, the chief critic and accuser of the brethren. Criticism can be a benefit, but a critic has no place in the kingdom.

Watch your mouth! Be careful to fully speak LIFE. Life and Death are in the power of your tongue. It is easy to join in with the naysayers and the complaining. The work is in seeing a gap in your brother’s heart and then interceding on his behalf.

What you see and what I AM showing you is for intercessory prayer. To be a spiritual ambassador advocating on behalf of MY sons and daughters. This demand, is placed on your creative power, to speak life over their situation.

Anyone can complain, but few will have the heart to pray, to resist the urge to gossip or gloat. You must be different, MY HOLY generation must be humble, attentive and responsible to the need of MY people.

Romans 14:10-12
So why do you condemn another believera? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. For the Scriptures say,
“‘As surely as I live,’ says the LORD, ‘every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will declare allegiance to God. Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God. So let’s stop condemning each other. Decide instead to live in such a way that you will not cause another believer to stumble and fall.

#12 – You are MY Breath

Your pain is real and you are justified in your hurt, but this is not an end, it is a beginning. I come to redeem you from the hurt and to redeem what the cankerworm, the caterpillar and the palmer worm have destroyed.

I AM the creator, what I create in you will exist and it will flourish. MY ‘Let There Be’ never stops, everything I touch produces life and MY hand is on you. The power to restore is on you, but also produced inside of you.

You are being renewed, to become an indelible source of rejuvenation. I exist to restore the broken pieces. Give ME the broken pieces, that the world rejects. With ME, a beautiful mosaic masterpiece is being formed.

You are MY handy work. You are the masterpiece. You are the ornate sculpture formed by MY very hands. Not only are you MINE, I have vested MY breath of life inside you, to breathe life into all that I send you. You are MY breath.

Act 17:24-25
“He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in man-made temples, and human hands can’t serve his needs—for he has no needs. He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need.

#11 – The First of Many

Freedom is your birthright, but you have traded it for the opinion of others. I made you perfect, flawless and in MY image. How can MY image be wrong? How can MY likeness ever fail? Whose report will your believe?

You are powerful beyond measure. Failure can only exist with your compliance, through an act of surrender. I say repent, turn away now! Take your Power! Refuse to be limited by a system of failed beliefs.

You are the first of many and a new nation is inside you and a new bloodline coming from you. A new trajectory of power and prestige is what you are establishing. There will not be a trail, you can follow, for you are the trailblazer.

Many will not understand, because the vison I have given is for you. It is not them to condemn or confirm. MY plans for you are not the business of any man. MY plan is a purpose and a promise between you and I.

Ephesians 1:11-14
Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan. God’s purpose was that we Jews who were the first to trust in Christ would bring praise and glory to God. And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his ownd by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago. The Spirit is God’s guarantee that he will give us the inheritance he promised and that he has purchased us to be his own people. He did this so we would praise and glorify him.

#10 – I AM Order

I am asking you to flow in my anointing and cease kicking against the pricks. Everything has a cycle and is synchronized to me. The tides, the orbits, the seasons are on a cycle, know when to sow and when to reap.

Know the difference in the Peters and Judases in your life, both denied ME, but one repented. One was evil and one found his way back to righteousness. You may prefer one over the other, but both are necessary.

This is hard to hear, but it takes both the rain and the sunshine to grow. Move when I say move and stop when I say stop. A harvest that arrives too soon spoils and a harvest that arrives too late causes lost revenues.

Man’s timing is rushed and always self serving. My timing is perfect, slow down and sync with ME. Sync with MY every movement. Relinquish all to ME, your thoughts, your behaviors and your very will. Even in chaos, there is order. I AM order.

Matthew 4:43-47
“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’q and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies!r Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. If you are kind only to your friends,s how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that. But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.

#9 – No Man Owns You

What are you waiting for? Whose permission do you need to be you? Where are the experts on what I have perfected in you? Why is their opinion, important to you?

Can they breathe life into earthen clay? Have they parted seas or hung a single star? Can they rebuke the storms? Show them to ME, who have stayed your tongue.

No man owns you, for I have given you dominion in the air, the sea and on land. Your permission is your commission and the commission is signified by the breath in your lungs.

Act now on your commission. MY breathe, life and spirit in you cannot return to ME void or without purpose. Use what I have given, then I will entrust you with more.

Matthew 28:18
Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

#8 – A Righteous Indignation

I desire that a righteous indignation rises up in you, that a holy anger comes to the forefront of your mind and an insatiable desire to do my WILL overtakes you.

The righteous suffered violence and the violent taketh by force. You have been released to address Fear, in real time. No metaphors, parabolic language or spiritual colloquialisms.

Speak life no matter the circumstances, defying the critics, along with the culture and I will cover you. I will cover you with a staying Grace and give you a specific dynamin: a power, an ability, a miracle working capability & a virtue)

These are your marching orders: to heal the sick, to rebuke the enemy where he stands and to demonstrate MY power in this world. As men are drawn to you, they are asking for ME. Give them MY love.

Luke 9:1-5
One day Jesus called together his twelve disciples and gave them power and authority to cast out all demons and to heal all diseases.Then he sent them out to tell everyone about the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick. “Take nothing for your journey,” he instructed them. “Don’t take a walking stick, a traveler’s bag, food, money,or even a change of clothes. Wherever you go, stay in the same house until you leave town. And if a town refuses to welcome you, shake its dust from your feet as you leave to show that you have abandoned those people to their fate.”

#7 – Just Praise

When you have no words, worship. When all else has failed you, worship. When the pain is debilitating, worship. When you see no way out, just worship. As the world seems against you, worship.

There is power in your worship, your worship compels ME to move. It is your secret armament against the enemy. Your worship motivates ME and immobilizes the evil one simultaneously.

I inhabit the praises of MY people. Push past the pain to praise ME and I will be in your midst. I will partner with you in solving the hardest of problems. In your praise, MY mystery is revealed.

I am bound by the praises of your lips. I will always abide there. David was a man after MY heart in this same way. Though flawed he praised ME and though exiled he praised ME. You will find ME in your praise.

Psalms 150
Praise the LORD! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heaven! Praise him for his mighty works; praise his unequaled greatness! Praise him with a blast of the ram’s horn; praise him with the lyre and harp! Praise him with the tambourine and dancing; praise him with strings and flutes! Praise him with a clash of cymbals; praise him with loud clanging cymbals. Let everything that breathes sing praises to the LORD! Praise the LORD!

#6 – Guard your Mind

Listen to my voice, Listen to my Peace, Listen to my calm. These are your secret weapons. As you close your mind to distraction, know it is designed to confuse and to steal that peace. Do this, close your eyes and focus on MY voice. From this place of Peace, your next move will be made.

My Spirit is pouring out to edify you spiritually, emotionally and wholeheartedly. As MY peace flows within and you then walk into the world, it will be with power. You will have a greater command of your words, your speech and the spiritual gifts you possess.

As My compassion abounds and overwhelms, press into ME for your clarity, for your purpose and for your destiny. Be mindful that there are true purposes and false purposes. One serves ME the Lord, the other serves the flesh and produces a carnal harvest.

As you look to me for direction versus the world, it will be clear. I am sending you into the world to change it and not for it to change you. All of this is to equipped you for action, to be a decisive warrior in the spirit realms. Guard your mind, by watching for idle chatter, frivolous debates and unwarranted attacks.

Romans 8:5-6
Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace

#5 – The Fire and the Ram

Have you considered ME as an Answer to your problems? The answers are not in politics or economics, they are matters of faith. Have you ever seen the Righteous forsaken?

Look to ME, I AM bigger than knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Those exist because of ME and cannot be ascertained without ME, for each of them emanate from ME.

Reconsider your position. You are connected directly to the source, no priest is needed. I tore the vail for you to be and abide with me. Look to ME as your answer.

I am the wind that parted the Red Sea, I am the Balm of Gilead, I am the Pillar of Fire by night, I am the cloud by day, I am the manna that fell from heaven and I am both the fire and ram in the bush.

Exodus 3:1-4
One day Moses was tending the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro,the priest of Midian. He led the flock far into the wilderness and came to Sinai, the mountain of God. There the angel of the LORD appeared to him in a blazing fire from the middle of a bush. Moses stared in amazement. Though the bush was engulfed in flames, it didn’t burn up. “This is amazing,” Moses said to himself. “Why isn’t that bush burning up? I must go see it.” When the LORD saw Moses coming to take a closer look, God called to him from the middle of the bush, “Moses! Moses!” “Here I am!” Moses replied.

Genesis 22:13
Abraham looked up and saw a ram caught by its horns in the bushes. So he took the ram and sacrificed it instead of his son. 

#4 – I am your Healing

Choose ME and stop limiting who I have made, based on the small consciousness of man. The same care used in creating the earth, moon and stars was used to make you.

You are better than this. You are called to more than this. You have the DNA of Adam, Abraham and Isreal flowing through your veins. You are more than this world has to offer, because you are not from this world.

I see the challenges that lay before you and I also see the MY Glory, because you are never alone. I am standing here beside you. My commitment is to you, for you and through you, forevermore.

Stop trying to hide your fears and pain from me, for I am Bethesda, a pool of healing. Immerse yourself in ME. Walk with ME, talk with ME and rest in ME. I AM your help and I am your healing.

John 5:8-9
Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am on my way, someone else goes in before me.” Then Jesus told him, “Get up, pick up your mat, and walk.” Immediately the man was made well, and he picked up his mat and began to walk.
