#259 – Will it be Life or Death?

The most challenging adversity exists in the mind. The willingness to face your personal darkness is work and the hard thing. The demon of doubt, the demon of a low esteem and the fear of failure reside there.

I have made you to be internally motivated not externally. This means that both cowardice and courage are internal mechanisms. The world, the culture or the powers that be, can only influence the opinions, that are already in you.

The lucid thoughts and the second guessing of self are the residues of a fallen world, no one is immune. However, the conquerors are those that embrace the call being fully aware of these limitations and excel despite them.

In the midst of Eden stood two trees, the Tree of Life and The Knowledge of Good & Evil. Adam and Eve had options and a decision to make. The same choice is yours, Will it be Life or Death?

Genesis 2:15-17
The LORD God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. But the LORD God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.”

#258 – Find a Set of Values

The enemy is not a creator, but a counterfeiter. Since he cannot create, he corrupts. Just a small compromise here and there has great implications, like a small fox, to ruin the vines.

The enemy’s goal is to corrupt systems by stealing, killing and destroying. He uses the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life to wrongly influence. Are your choices true or have you been influenced to believe in a certain way?

The enemy’s systems are binding and limiting. God’s systems are building and liberating. What system, has the accuser, used to keep you bound? Is it a relational wound, familiar spirit or a tradition.

What do you believe and most importantly, Who do you believe? You, not your friends, family or your tribe, but what are your values? Search your heart, find a set of values, that align with the MY Holy Spirit.

Songs 2:15
Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that spoil the vineyards, for our vineyards are in blossom.

#257 – The God of this World

Your witness is in your peace. It is in the way you remain calm when others are anxious. Seeing the hope in a hopeless situation. Your lifestyle shows people how to handle the pressures of life with grace.

Many that are unable to receive me, will receive you. Carry ME with you, so that MY peace can be a comforter. An alternative to cycles of pain and addiction. Be MY heart helper.

Wealth is the god of this world. It can pay for the best in care, but not buy health. It can pay for companionship, but not buy a friend. It can pay for affection, but not buy love. It can pay for happiness, but not buy joy.

With or without money, I am sending you, because the world is hurting. The world is full of money, yet it is poor. It is filled with temporal pleasures, that have no eternal value. You, however are rich with spiritual gifting and MY love.

Philippians 4:6-7
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.

#256 – The Adversary’s Propaganda

What is the source? Ask this question of all you are consuming physically, mentally and spiritually. Good things can come from a corrupt source for a season, but eventually, the source and what comes from it, will align.

There is much being said and plenty to be heard. There is truth in it, but the foundation is not truth. The truth is like a garnish, with the main part of the dish a lie. A truth and a lie cannot coexist, it must be one or the other.

Consider your heart, why are you comfortable with partial truths. What have you done or are doing, that misinformation has become attractive? You can build with exaggeration, but the edifice will fall.

You are MY wise and faithful steward, you are anointed and capable in discerning the adversary’s propaganda. MY very nature is wisdom, knowledge and understanding. They are indwelled in ME and I AM indwelled in you.

Proverbs 3:19-20⠀
By wisdom the LORD founded the earth; by understanding he created the heavens. By his knowledge the deep fountains of the earth burst forth, and the dew settles beneath the night sky.

#255 – MY Perfect Breath

I am the GOD of, “Let there be” and “It was good”, there is no variation between the two. What I create and what I will to exist, does so. Life comes from ME, Hope comes from ME and Dominion comes from ME.

From the dust of the earth, I formed you in MY hands, pouring all of ME into you. You have MY Image, this is MY character. You have MY likeness, this is MY behavior. Most important, you received what no other has received, except the SON, MY breath.

I breathed MY Perfect breath into a Perfect form, made from a Perfect dust. This means, you are Perfect times three, you are Holy times three and you are MY Righteousness times three.

Refuse to downplay what I have made or operate without the full knowledge of who you are. You are MY Image and you are MY Likeness. You are perfect, you are holy and you are MY righteous creation.

Genesis 2:7
Then the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person.

#254 – Fear is your Father

I am bigger than the church and I am bigger than religion. I am even bigger than your best Faith. I am God. I stand alone and no one else can compare to ME. Put your hand in my hand and walk with ME.

Stop squabbling over things that do not matter and things that matter less and less over time. Use your energy to operate in your gift, to fulfill your purpose and to flow in your calling.

The question is simple, are you going to follow God or are you going to follow man? Each time you follow men, you will get what a man can give and what a man deserves. However, when you follow ME, the everlasting Lord, you get a King’s ransom and eternal life.

The enemy of Faith is Fear. Be honest, what is the cause for the reservation in your heart toward ME? The answer is obvious, you have not completely trusted ME. Fear is your father.

John 8:42-44
Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on My own, but He sent Me. Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you are unable to accept My message. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, refusing to uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, because he is a liar and the father of lies.

#253 – Identity Awareness

Who are you? Not what others have said or what roles you play, but how are you uniquely impacting the world? Identity can only be found in me. The creations meaning is found in the mind of the creator.

You are looking for identity in all the wrong environments. It is impossible to gain clarity, from people unclear in themselves. The blind cannot lead the blind. Who you are becomes clear when, who you are ‘not’ is extinguished.

Your identity has at least three components: purpose, calling and spiritual gifting. The power of an identified soul is exemplified when all three are clear and in alignment. The purpose is why you exist, the calling is the role you exist in and the spiritual gifting is what you exist to do.

Identity awareness is a threat to the evil one. Since the day you were born confusion has sought to corrupt what God made. Establishing your identity will be a fight fought on two fronts, the flesh and the spirit. Your success in both realms will determine your level of awareness and the level of anointing.

Genesis 32:28
From now on you will be called Israel, because you have fought with God and with men and have won.

#252 – A New Thing

The tradition that sustained them in Egypt, was a curse in the wilderness. When entering into freedom the physical shackles can be undone, while the mental shackles are left untouched. Your lifestyle is defeating the word of truth deposited in you.

There are many things that worked well formally, but the new day requires a new thing. As I am shifting you from the borrower to the lender, your integrity must also shift. Your present stewardship must reflect the behavior of your future borrowers.

Render to them, as you desire to receive, when your time of lending comes. Be honest, be timely and pay it all in full. Consider it this way, your integrity is a seed and your behaviors determine the latter harvest.

All things have a time and a place. Consider the manna miracle, each portion was for that day and a double portion was for the Sabbath. Those who did not work, did not eat and if the manna was hoarded it would breed worms. The when, the what and the how, each matter to the Father.

Mark 7:13
Thus you nullify the word of God by the tradition you have handed down. And you do so in many such matters

#251 – Freedom is Self-Control

Pray for clarity and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the areas in your life where there is compromise. There are some mindsets, attitudes and behaviors that were established by the old you, that are a hindrance to the new you.

There is a grit and a mentality that was useful and perhaps required to survive in a former environment. That season has passed. It is fine for a caterpillar to crawl, but not a butterfly, when it can take flight.

There are some familiar spirits, generational curses and demons that have been rebuked, but you have given them new license to operate. Stop it. It is impossible to dance with darkness or depression and not walk away with a shadow.

Freedom is not free, it will cost. The currency is delayed gratification, denial of flesh and restraint. The power to enjoy the freedom of what you want, requires a discipline and a mastery in the avoidance of things that contribute to a lack of control. Freedom is self-control.

Psalms 119:43-46
Do not snatch your word of truth from me, for your regulations are my only hope. I will keep on obeying your instructions forever and ever. I will walk in freedom, for I have devoted myself to your commandments. I will speak to kings about your laws, and I will not be ashamed.

#250 – Messages, Ideas and Movements

Death has no fury, so do not fear it. Dying is not the end of living, it is the end of one’s presence in this dimension. Life goes on through messages, ideas and movements.

Your legacy will live, be bold enough to build it. The world cannot benefit from the wisdom stored in your memories. Share with the world, what I have entrusted in you. Live in the Dreams I have given you.

Trust what you see, when your eyes are closed, trust what I deposited into you. Trust the hope, the peace and the encouragement, these are more valuable than wealth and possessions.

Give your fellow man a taste from the cup of life, that I have a lavished on you. Begin to pour into others, allow what I have shared privately to be known publicly. Expose MY secrets to the word.

2 Timothy 1:10
And now he has made all of this plain to us by the appearing of Christ Jesus, our Savior. He broke the power of death and illuminated the way to life and immortality through the Good News.

#249 – MY Grace is Reserved

MY Grace needs a home and your heart is perfect. Your righteousness is meritless without my endorsement. Like a currency without a state seal, any righteousness apart from ME is unrighteousness and has no value.

Man only has one way to bless you, but I have many ways to uphold, to encourage and to prosper you. There is not, nor will there ever be, lack in MY kingdom. I AM the GOD of plenty and more than enough.

Those that seek MY feet are worthy of MY crown. A heart and an imagination filled with MY glory is compelled to honor. MY overwhelming presence causes every knee to bow and every tongue to confess.

Stop doing things under your own power and authority. MY grace is reserved for the prudent heart. Tap into ME for the power, tap into ME for the strength and tap into ME to control, the uncontrollable.

James 4:6
But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”

#248 – Spiritual Ambassador

Remember that you are MY ambassador, from the times of you being small, I have called you to reconcile people to ME. A reconciler of men’s hearts.

Depression, doubt and confusion is just fear by another name and it is rooted out by Love, MY Love. I placed an unlimited amount of empathy, compassion and hope in your heart, to see things from many angles and many points of view.

It is time for you to start fulfilling the mandate on your heart and answer your ultimate calling of a reconciler, by loving the unlovable. By loving those sworn to hating you. You will need to go into the highways and byways by faith.

I am calling you into the deep, because you are ready to face your destiny and attend to the ultimate purpose, castaway the double mindedness and the second guessing of self. Embrace your role as a spiritual ambassador and begin to reconcile the hearts of men, to ME. You are MY heart reconciler.

2 Corinthians 5:20
Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.

#247 – Prepare Yourself

You will soon be more wise, than some who have advised you. It will be vital that you refuse to be offended, if your promotion is not celebrated. Some will seek to limit you, to who you once were.

This next season is yours. You will walk into a series of predestined moments. If you make a mistake, do not wallow in it or allow the regrets to fester. Forgive yourself and determine to do better.

There are precious souls lacking, because you were not in position. All the benchmarks your father failed to achieve and all the blessings your mother refused to accept, are laid up dormant and awaiting your faith, to be activated.

Prepare yourself to be overwhelmed with HIS goodness. To be used in a mighty way, not for your glory, but for HIS Glory. You are a living showpiece signifying what a changed heart looks like.

Jeremiah 1:5
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.

#246 – Guard your Heart

Guard your heart, some that have began the journey with you, will eventually fade away. Many have helped, but the seed was from God and the harvest is for you. You were made for this day and all that is coming to you was destined, from the beginning.

The many, many struggles were for the purposes of teaching you, stretching you and building you. The blessings coming your way have always been. Due to your obedience they are now shifting, shifting from the spirit realm to the natural realm.

You are in a phenomenal, but fragile phase of growth. It is the birthing of something that will change your life, your children’s lives and each subsequent generation, if you will remain true to your covenant with God.

Through the simplicity of placing God first, in all that you do. You will single handily break the curses of fear, poverty, immorality and witchcraft, permanently in your bloodline.

Proverbs 4:23
Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.

#245 – Your task is Urgent

It is important that you continue to press hard and with divine strategy, this is a must. Do not forsake the dream. Trust what I have told you. Trust what you see, when your eyes are closed.

People may not believe in you, but they are not chosen, I selected you. The Dream is in you, but from ME and it is your assignment, to complete, in the earth. We will have dominion together.

In this dominion will be your highest fulfillment. It will provide you stability, from the mental to the financial. It will be a source of frustration, but your greatest peace, the pain and purpose are integral.

Press on, beyond what you see and beyond how you are feeling. What you are commissioned to say are more than mere words, your task is urgent, it is to speak LIFE. Your words produce life.

Proverbs 18:21
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

#244 – Your Return

I AM the Prodigal Father and live from covenant to covenant. I wait in anticipation for reconciliation to MY beloved, which is you. I hold restoration in MY left hand and redemption in MY right hand.

If I AM talking to you, then I AM also restoring you. Fellowship with ME is restoration. I embody the Tree of Life, all that you need and are hoping for can be found in ME, a river of flowing waters.

I AM waiting for you to, ‘come to yourself’ and return ME, your Father. If you would only walk towards ME, I will run to you. It is all about you. The heavens and the earth were made with you in mind. It is all for your pleasure, in ME.

I have been anticipating your arrival and look eagerly for your return, daily. The fattened calf and a festival are ready. I have new sandals, to cover the past sin. I have a new robe, to cover the present sin and I have a new ring (covenant) to cover the future sin.

Luke 15:22-24
“But his father said to the servants, ‘Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on him. Get a ring for his finger and sandals for his feet. And kill the calf we have been fattening. We must celebrate with a feast, for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.’ So the party began..

#243 – MY Hand is on You

All that I build, lasts. All that I say comes to pass. Whatsoever I think comes into existence. That which lives, breathes and has being, flows out of ME. I have formed and shaped you for MY glory.

Listen to the Lord of hosts, I AM not nor can I ever be confused. MY plans remain until the end. Your life is in MY perfect plan. Every bump and bruise will be used and will demonstrate MY glory.

A series of lies have been told. Lies about who you are and lies that conflict with, how I made you. You belong to ME and I have called you definitively, specifically and deliberately by name. Your knowledge of ME, wisdom concerning ME and ability to understand ME is by MY choosing.

All that I touch produces and You too will be productive, because MY hand is on you. I have chosen to deputize you. It cannot be undone, nor does anyone have the power to overturn what I command.

Isaiah‬ ‭43:12-13
First I predicted your rescue, then I saved you and proclaimed it to the world. No foreign god has ever done this. You are witnesses that I am the only God,” says the LORD. “From eternity to eternity I am God. No one can snatch anyone out of my hand. No one can undo what I have done.”

#242 – Protect your Light

The light and the darkness have been warring for a long while, in you. By Christ’s grace and mercy, through your obedience, the light is prevailing. Your faith has caused a promotion in the spirit realms.

Your Promotion is a light and many are drawn, but not for the right reasons. They want the light, but are not willing to do what you have done. This is problematic and will cause those drawn to you to become stumbling blocks.

They want the prize, but not the process. Everyone will be kind and caring, until getting what they want becomes futile. Like Cain killing Abel, some will attack you, while being angry with themselves. Angry because they made the wrong sacrifices.

You have permission to say NO. Say No to any thing that violates your peace or your core values. Protect your heart from those that only take and have no intentions to give. Protect your light from those with no light of their own and seek to make yours dim.

Matthew 5:14-16
You are the light of the world. A city on a hillb cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead, they set it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

#241 – Be Holy

I AM not asking for you to be perfect, I desire for you to be holy. Holy. A heart that seeks holiness can be eventually perfected. Not an outward form of holiness designated by man, but inward holiness that can only be established and substantiated by ME.

Out of the holiness in your spirit, all things flow and are sanctified. Your submission to MY Holy Will, produces a Holy Soul. By offering up the first fruits of your spirit, I will also, give you a Holy Flesh.

Take your private time with ME more seriously, allow it to become a time of consecration and reflection. Prayer is more than a petition, it is also for impartation. Listen, after you asked, I have solutions you need to hear.

As you begin to move from consecrated moments to a consecrated life. The desires of the flesh begin to diminish and your hearing becomes sharper. Your hearing produces faith and in your hearing MY presence dwells. Those that hear are chosen and it is out of MY benevolence, you have heard.

Leviticus 20:26
You must be holy because I, the LORD, am holy. I have set you apart from all other people to be my very own.

#240 – The Lord of Resurrection

What is important to you is also important to ME. As the Father, MY ways are higher than your ways and MY thoughts higher than your thoughts. This means, that how I behave is based on MY sovereignty and cannot be dictated by man.

The sister of Lazarus had an expectation based on her presumptive nature, but his sickness was not onto death. His condition was placed on a pedestal, so that the outcomes would give ME Glory and glorify MY Son.

You are MY masterpiece and through you all must be displayed, the good days, along with the bad. You are MY demonstration of the times of triumph and the times of many tears. Despite what you see, your situation not onto death.

If I resurrected Lazarus, I can resurrect anything: your marriage, your health, your business and your finances. Here is the hard part, in order for there to be a resurrection, something or someone must die. Weep if needed, but this moment will not last, for I AM the Lord of resurrection.

John 11:4
“This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”
