Whatever I ask of you, I always provide a means and an anointing to accomplish. The world will hand you failures, rejections and betrayals, you must endure. On the other side of struggle is unearthed truth.
The failure is to free you from the outcomes. The rejection is freedom from man’s approval and the betrayal is to free you from people’s opinions. When you are free from these, you are free from fear.
The difference between the victory and the loss, is in the fight. Not if you fight well enough, to see the victory, but if you can fight long enough. Are you willing, to remain long enough, in the place of pressure to see your victory?
Your adversary has finite resources, but your lifeline is the Lord Almighty. I have infinite resources and a wellspring that cannot run dry. It may take a while, perhaps a long while, but the fight will be productive.
1 Tim. 6:12
Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you, which you have declared so well before many witnesses.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Your gifts are made for Influence, to shift the hearts, the cultures and the foundations of this world. What now indwells you, the gift, once indwelled ME. This is why the gift is beyond repentance.
This can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your heart. I have given you a power reserved only for man. Nothing else created has this same power to harness MY very image and likeness.
As your gift is without repentance. You can use your light, selfishly or to draw men to ME, the Higher Light. You can lead them astray or lead them to ME. It is your gift to use, misuse or abuse.
Consider your actions, there will be an accounting. Consider how you operated in the gifts entrusted to you. To whom much is given much is required. Be wise, continuously consult the Giver of your gift.
And a servant who knows what the master wants, but isn’t prepared and doesn’t carry out those instructions, will be severely punished, But someone who does not know, and then does something wrong, will be punished only lightly. When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.
A wise man learns something from all that impacts him and a fool is easily offended. To gain a self sustained confidence, will mean a shifting from faith in men, to faith in ME.
Opinions, opinions, and more opinions. Have you noticed that men will give advice from a place in their hearts, from which, they are not competent? The words they speak are for their own ears.
Opinions blow in the wind, they are fleeting and have no substance, some from the east and others push in from the west. The opinions of your environment have become the yokes of bondage.
You are no longer slaves, you instead are joint heirs, making you 100% MY Sons. You can move, walk and make decisions in supreme confidence, that the Mercy Seat is on your side and I AM standing with you.
I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt so you would no longer be their slaves. I broke the yoke of slavery from your neck so you can walk with your heads held high.
You are still performing for the affirmations of men. Looking for an external validation, always leads to compromise. An outside wind touches the body, but never the soul.
Your power is not in the opinion of another, it is and will alway be with ME. Trust ME in the storm and to make ways, from no ways. Trust ME with the seed of your faith and I will cause it to grow.
Your time and energy have value. Part with your Peace under no circumstances, whatever leads to chaos or confusion is not ME and is not for you.
Rise early and seek ME, so that your assignments are clear. When I say move, you must move. When I say listen, you must listen. When I say love, you must love. When I say forgive, you must forgive.
It is dangerous to be concerned with what others think of you, but if you trust the Lord, you are safe.
Galatians 1:10 Am I saying this now to win the approval of people or God? Am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be Christ’s servant.
You are experiencing warfare, it is not an illusion. People and principalities have set themselves against you, but it is not skin and bones that you are fighting. The fight is manifesting in the natural, but was initiated in the spirit realms.
Do not worry, I have provided either a lesson, a victory or a way of escape. Check your emotions and pay attention to what you see. The times of escape are for you, to see the tactics of the enemy, that you can be better prepared in the future.
The eternal is being neglected, based on decisions made in the temporal. There is a gap between what you have prayed for and when you receive it. A gap between what you are hoping for and what is your reality.
A gap between your hurt and your healing. The gap is where your Faith is tested and where your strength becomes evident. This is the, hard place, where character is formed. A place I use to expose, that which is in you.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
I AM the Lord, I sit high and look low. Every aspect of your life matters to ME. There is nothing that is insignificant. All of your hurts and all of your pains are important to me. I care for each iota.
Remember, I catch every tear and I AM aware of each sorrow. Nothing about you escapes ME. I AM always listening, I have heard your petition and I have heard your cry. I see your heart.
This hurt will not last forever and it will not be unto death. I have prepared you for this day and you will survive, this is a testimony in the making. This is substance of things hoped for.
Get ready to put on your dancing shoes, because hope is coming, peace is coming, joy is coming. Your breakthrough is guaranteed and your happiness will return.
Though I am surrounded by troubles, you will protect me from the anger of my enemies. You reach out your hand, and the power of your right hand saves me. The LORD will work out his plans for my life for your faithful love, O LORD, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me.
Just show up at the appointed time. The fear of the battle will caused many to quit, but if you will just show up, you can win. Put on your armor and prepare to look the enemy straight in the eyes.
Win, lose or draw make your presence known. Raise your hand to be counted, submit your name for consideration and be certain to make your voice heard. Walking where most have retreated is a victory.
Goliath was undefeated, because he was undisputed, not one dared to challenge him, until a Shepherd boy, named David. He was unbeaten, because he was unchallenged.
The uncircumcised Philistines in your life are going unchecked and unchallenged. I have a special anointing available, if you would just show up to the battlefield. The victory is mine and the spoils will be yours.
1 Samuel 17:36-38
“Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God … David said moreover, The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the Lord be with thee.”
If I needed you to be smarter, I would have made it so. If I needed you to be taller, then height you would have. If I needed you to have a different ethnicity, I would have done it.
If you needed money, I would supply it. If you needed people, then you would know them by now. If you needed more time, then I would allow it. If you needed more skill, then it would be easily accessible.
If you needed more opportunity, then my favor would go before you. If you needed more strength, then you would be stronger. If needed more of anything, remember I AM your everything.
Whatever you think you need, if it was necessary I would provide. What you need is ME. Allow ME to be your teacher, counselor, banker, banner, peace, help, hope, strength, lover, friend, confidant, healer and intercessor.
LORD, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine. The land you have given me is a pleasant land. What a wonderful inheritance! I will bless the LORD who guides me; even at night my heart instructs me. I know the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
I need help to release the pain and to forgive. I know what I must do, but I have not let the offenses go, completely.
I realize the pain has a purpose and Father you are sovereign, but my heart hurts. The rejection, I fear, is more than I can withstand, but my trust is in You.
Make it, make sense. Please. I thank you for the victory over my emotions and the power to outlast my feelings, the feeling of inadequacy, the feeling of not being enough and the desire to abort the process.
I need your peace and your comfort. Help me with my unbelief, help me with my confidence and help me to heal.
This is hard to move past, but nevertheless I surrender. I surrender, to your will and to your process. Every gift, talent and ability is yours and I surrender completely to you now.
“What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.” The father instantly cried out, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!”
You are drowning in a sea of blessings. There is so much to be grateful for and even more to say thank you regarding. The constant awareness of what you do not have, must be overcome.
You are so blessed and surrounded by blessings. Learn to Listen and to Laugh. ALL that you have, the resources, relationships and revenues are MY benevolence. I have chosen to bless you.
I AM making you a blessing. In the garden, there were many trees for enjoyment and consumption, one was forbidden. It is your task to embrace the many and not to fixate on the one.
What you are missing is not the issue. It is the inability to see how highly favored you are. When you devote yourself to a life of being fully and continuously grateful. I will enlarge your territory fully and continuously.
2 Cor. 9:10
For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.
There cannot be a fullness of Love, without the fullness of losing it. Love shapes and love molds. Love motivates and love captivates. The absence of love is the absence of life. Love listens.
Every situation can be enhanced, by the simplicity of adding love. Let love guide, let it nurture and let it heal the hurts. Love is truth and love is light. It cannot be purchased, but will cost you your all.
Let love lead, let it answer the hardest questions and let it be your excuse, to try again. Let love flow to those most underserved, because it will lift them out of despair, out of depression and out of darkness.
You may ask, Why Listen to love? because love has not, nor has the capacity, to lie. Love cannot lead you in the wrong direction. Love is life. Love is peace. Love is hope. Love is understanding. Love is truth.
1 John 4:7-8
Beloved, let us love one another, because love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
Be consistent continuing to swing hard and with all your effort. Use all your might to hit the target. The Dream is yours to birth and the path will not be clear to others, this is by design.
Clarity of vision is for the visionary and what you see only needs to make sense, to you. Remain fully persuaded of what I have said: each covenant, conviction and command.
Every ounce of what you have experienced and have come to know are relevant to the purpose, the calling and the assignment for this season. All things are working together for your good.
The Yes’s and the No’s of man, do not matter. You have a greater yes from ME and MY yes will never change. It is a YES ensured by MY very Spirit. It was yes in your mother’s womb and it is still a yes, today.
This means that Heaven and Earth will cease to exist before, MY promises concerning you, return to ME void. As sure as, MY Breath and Spirit entered Adam, the Great I AM is within you.
Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.
Honor will open doors, that debate cannot. Sowing a seed of understanding, will create a harvest of being understood. You can follow the law and miss the heart of the Law Giver.
Taking the time to hear and to listen, is time that can never be wasted. Pressing your ears against a human heart is the only way, it can be heard. It is the only way to be know and fully loved.
When eyes are cast down, the shoulders are shrugging or when the tears run slowly, a language is spoken, that only a tuned heart can decipher. The language of the heart is not heard, it is discerned.
What are you living for? A fight? Does debate thrill you? Tell me, where are your spoils! What cubit has been added to the Kingdom for all your verbal sparring, wrangling and dissenting?
“I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.
I AM raising your stature in the eyes of men, because of what you have done in private. It is the internal work of MY spirit, that produces an incorruptible fruit. It is what you conquer in the darkness, that is rewarded in the light.
Chasing the accolades of men will never be fulfilling, because men’s hearts persist in wickedness and thirst for blood, the blood of the innocent. Filling a spiritual void, with carnal pleasure is a pointless exercise.
It would be wise to invest in the incorruptible, the kingdom that has never taken a loss and will exist forever. It would be best to cast your lot, with the King of Glory and place your hope in the resurrected Savior.
In ME, you will win, both in this world and in the next. Do not be fooled into accepting a glittering fake life, from a glittering fake god. Lucifer the shining one, the great counterfeiter proves this.
1 Peter 1:3-4
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you
There is not a scarcity in the heavens. Any shortages of supply are man made. In ME, flow rivers of milk and honey. All that is supplied, is supplied by ME and MY supply is an endless reservoir.
I AM the Vine and you are the branches. Life, love and living flow throughout eternity, because of ME. I hold the life of ALL in the palm of MY hand and death is MY slave. Everything that is made must submit to ME.
Competing is fine and striving to be better is also fine. Your race, however, is not against other men or even against time. The race is always between the carnal you and spirit filled you.
Your sinful nature is in direct competition with your anointed purpose. The flesh is warring against the spirit. You decide who wins, the carnal nature or your heavenly calling.
So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions. But when you are directed by the Spirit, you are not under obligation to the law of Moses.
I have given you explicit instructions by MY spirit and you have not followed. Now there is an occlusion, brought on by disobedience, a blocking of the flow. These actions are causing a restriction.
The tasks set before you are cumulative and are designed to provide a key for what is coming next. The results of this disobedience is affecting more than one season, but also the next season.
There is a deeper anointing and a higher level of Glory available. It is conditional and has a cost. You must be trustworthy. When I speak, you listen. When I command, you obey. When I move, you move.
Make ME the God of the hidden places. The space where no one enters. Allow ME into the shadows of your heart. I want to be Lord of All, even your embarrassments, short comings and failures.
I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
Whether it be a sacrifice of praise or a living sacrifice, the aroma is pleasing to ME. The smell of your praise is sweet and soothing, to MY very soul. I made you for this, I formed you like a lyre and a cymbal.
Praise MY name in your dark times.
Praise MY name in your depression.
Praise MY name in the pain.
Praise MY name in the mistreatment.
Praise MY name in the face of chaos.
In your praise, I will inhabit and heal.
In your praise, I will fulfill your joy.
In your praise, I will be your peace.
In your praise, I will be your refuge.
In your praise, I will make enemies flee.
Like David, chase MY heart and dance before ME. Use your body, as a living instrument and make a joyful noise to ME, the Lord. Praise ME for I AM worthy. Exalt MY name to the heavens.
1 Chronicles 29:10-12
David praised the LORD in the presence of the whole assembly, saying, “Praise be to you, LORD, the God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all.
Embracing the call will require courage. Operating in the call will require peace. It may be hard to face, but easy to abide in. A challenge to execute, but a thrill to maneuver through.
You have been released to speak life, to share MY gospel, to live a holy example and to rebuke the kingdom of darkness. I AM the Wind at your backside pushing you to be vigilant and ferocious.
Money may come and notoriety as well, but none compares to alignment with ME. Wealth and Fame make terrible Gods, stick with the True Living God. This will be the needed light in dark times.
Fulfillment is a greater goal. It is achieved when your purpose, calling, gifting, values, talents, abilities, skills and assignments are in agreement. In agreement with the purposes of MY heart.
1 Corinthians 15:58
“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”
MY love is unlimited, it has no bounds. It has no expiration date, it cannot be extinguished. It cannot be expunged, it is the continuous seam that holds life together. It has no barriers and it can never be hidden from you.
From generation to generation, there is MY love. I AM love and MY eyes are upon you. You can never lose MY love, and you can never out run MY love. AGAPE was created for you, a Love that is eternal and unconditional.
At your lowest point, I love you and at your highest point, I love you all the same. I love you when the applause is high and I love you when all abandon you. I love the parts of you others do not see. I love thoroughly, through and through.
MY love fills all voids, changing frequencies and atmospheres. My love is the answer to pain, it is the answer to fear, it is the answer to depression, it is the answer to defeat, it is the answer to darkness and is the answer to ALL hurts.
1 John 4:16
“We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.”
Father honestly, I have no idea how to serve you. You know me, I am the one that has failed time and time again. If left to my own devices, I will lose it all again. I will embarrass you, my family and the ministry.
I need your help father or it just will not work. Open my eyes to my blind spots, reveal the areas of my ego and my pride. I repent from trying to share in your glory. Purge my mind. My thoughts are impure and my motives unclean.
I hate to admit, but I sought Glory, not to honor you, but to be impressive to men. The husband you have ordained, I am not. The father you have commissioned, I have desperately failed to be. The friend and confidante you have given me charge to become, I have missed the mark.
I need heart repair and a deep intensive, intravenous love transfusion. What good is it, to be great in the eyes of men and fail in your eyes, to fail the one who loves me most. Teach me how to be a man of God.
“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing.”
