I can intervene by solving your issues, instantly or you can have the victory through MY process. Both are miracles, but going through the process produces a different type of spoil, a more mature mental edge.
Praying away the pain may not be MY will, because some pain cannot be mitigated, it must be experienced with eyes wide open. If you deny the pain, then you deny the power, it produces.
Embrace the rejection, in the rejection is MY perfection, being ostracized can lead to an exclusivity with ME, that the path of least resistance, cannot. This undermines the infection of man’s affirmations.
Start rooting for the underdog, because his weakness is MY strength. Look for others that society has written off and there you will find MY sons and daughters. What the world meant for evil, I have taken and made for good.
Then the Jews stirred up the influential religious women and the leaders of the city, and they incited a mob against Paul and Barnabas and ran them out of town. So they shook the dust from their feet as a sign of rejection and went to the town of Iconium. And the believers were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.
I have said, that you can! That is all that matters. You were created to be smart and clever, use it. Use all that you are and all that you are capable of, to stretch towards the mark.
The winning is not exclusively in the outcomes, the winning is in competing and facing the enemy head on, despite the odds against you. Rise up to compete when others have forfeited, without trying.
Set your face like flint and fight for your very life. The competition is not in the circumstances, but in you facing the fear, inside you. The enemy is defeated, because you decided show up.
To the victor go the spoils of confidence, clarity and consistency. These are the tools, that give you an advantage in facing both fear and foe. The enemy is fear, either you control it or it will control you.
Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.
I understand it looks uncertain and there is no possible way it can work, just believe. I know it has never been done before, but just believe. I realize that few agree with you, but just keep believing.
I know that this is the hardest thing you have ever had to do, just believe. I know that you doubt yourself sometimes and it can be overwhelming, but just believe. I know you get frustrated, but just keep believing.
I know that you get tired and weary, just believe. I know you may want to give up and throw in the towel, but just believe. I know you feel unworthy and inadequate, but just keep believing.
Your belief and your unbelief are warring. The unbelief may always be present. As you offer your belief as a praise and lift your unbelief as a prayer, I will accept both as righteousness.
The father instantly cried out, ‘I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief.’
Hold on to the Hopes, the Promises and the Dreams. For they are all that you have. Money and possessions can pass away, popularity will fade. One that is up today, can be down on the next day.
What is Hope?
Hope is the partaking of a future joy, in the present moment. Hope is alive and it thrives when protected. If you sow in hope, you will reap in possibilities. Hope is key to surviving the mental warfare of this world. Hope is your umbilical cord.
What is a Promise?
A Promise is a guarantee from on high. It is God’s commitment to us, bound by HIS very word. Every letter of HIS Word is sealed with HIS sovereignty. Each promise is protected and connected to the existence of Heaven & Earth.
What is a Dream?
A Dream is a storyboard of what is to come. A tangible vision delivered to your subconscious, designed to bypass doubt and the second guessing of your mind. The dream is a blueprint of the future, secured and underwritten by the Blood of the Lamb. It cannot be unseen, denied or debated.
For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
2 Corinthians 1:20
For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.
He said, “Listen to my words: “When there is a prophet among you, I, the LORD, reveal myself to them in visions, I speak to them in dreams.
I know you are frustrated and feel left out, but your time is coming. This is the real testing. When you can obey with disobedience all around you and when you can speak truth, when most have already compromised.
Will you remain faithful, even though you have been betrayed? This season is about revealing the real you, to you. The reality of who you are measured by the acceptance of who you are called to be.
Anyone can worship, when things are going well. It is easy to be strong, when you have no problems. It is simple to speak with conviction, when all the accounts are full. It is time to see your circumstances through new lenses.
In your sufferings now, you are partaking in the sufferings of Christ, then. These trials qualify you to operate on a higher level of inheritance and a deeper level of intimacy. If you suffer and endure with him, you also will reign with him.
2 Timothy 2:11-13
Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him.
If we disown him, he will also disown us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.
Be steadfast in your pursuit of MY word and MY promises. Seek MY face. Seek MY heart, to discover the jewels, that I laid out for you. Long life and freedom are yours, to name a few.
Be persistent in your prayers and in your faith. Only speak that which builds and edifies. Only hear, what adds value and deposits into your account of faith. Guard your faith with absurd vigilance.
Be resistant to doubters and the naysayers, love them from afar, because you are building a house of faith. Only brick layers need apply. Deal with doubt next season, not now!
Be consistent in what you have heard and continue to read, fast and intercede on other’s behalf. The former promises are yet true, all will be filled and fulfilled, down to the very last word.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.
I rebuke the spirit of compromise. The world has sold you a bill of goods and you are asking it for permission to be you. Your so called friends have become idols and limiting barriers to fully embracing ME.
MY Word declares, I will have no other gods before ME. You have a choice: to choose the charity of men or to choose intimacy with ME. If you yield to the will of this world, you are knowingly accepting a lesser god.
Wake up and find yourself, your loyalties are misguided. The affirmations of men are not worth your soul. One thing is assuredly true, these would not make the same sacrifice for you.
Make the adjustment, before too much ground is lost. MY heart misses you, I AM searching for you, in the place you should be. Where are you Adam? Walk with ME again in the cool of the day.
Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him (Jesus), but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
Stand alone in your purity. You are a chosen vessel of the Great I Am, it is all the authenticity, authority and affirmation you need. What is already contained inside you is greater than what stands against you.
Stand alone in your salvation. You did not choose the Lord, it was I that chose you first. What I make is perfect and is perpetually being perfected. ALL else is a cheap carbon copy, an unauthorized replica.
Stand alone in your convictions. Christ’s death is your life. The new you has eclipsed the old you and your proof of HIS Glory is exemplified in your converted heart and mind. Refuse to relapse into the old you.
Stand alone in your calling. He who is called is also equipped. You are now amongst a peculiar people. You do not answer too any man, but there is an answer in you for every man.
Because thou art a holy people to the Lord thy God. The Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be his peculiar people of all peoples that are upon the earth.
Hug yourself and Smile, because despite what you see your day is coming. All that you are hoping for, will be a reality. I have never let you down, every promise, in ME is guaranteed.
Even in the face of what seems impossible, MY omnipotence is undefeated. MY name is the only thing that makes devils and demons flea. Place praises to MY name in your mouth and circumstances will change.
You are fighting the good fight, so press on. Continue to listen, to the still calm voice, because I AM always speaking. Have no fear. Trust what your spirit is saying, trust, what I grafted into your DNA.
I AM your Father and as a good Father, I want the best for MY children, the best. What you are enduring is designed to extract MY best. The best heart, the best mind and the best intentions.
For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people. Hold firmly to the word of life; then, on the day of Christ’s return, I will be proud that I did not run the race in vain and that my work was not useless.
Advice from broken people leads to brokenness, the blind cannot lead the blind. The advice of fools is plentiful, their advice is slick and seductive, but it adds no sustainable value.
Pay attention to the seasons. Wisdom is becoming more rare and opinions are more valuable than truth. Being offended is now celebrated and seen as a reasonable way to resolve conflict.
Popular culture is clashing with character, integrity and honor. Character has been replaced by personality, integrity by popularity and honor by public opinion.
Do not be dismayed. Truth will prevail. Godly character will last and true integrity is sought after like rare jewels. The pressures of the day are not worth compromising for. Protect your honor and advocate for the honor of others.
Like a muddied fountain and a polluted spring Is a righteous man who yields and compromises his integrity before the wicked
You are not your own, you were bought with a price. When the ransom was due, I paid it in full. The wages of your sin was death, but Christ stepped in as a kinsman redeemer, to make payment in full.
He paid it all and you operate in freedom, as a result. You are free and the bondage has been relinquished. Remove the limitations of what you cannot do and cannot have, you are no longer a slave.
This means your freedom in Christ is more than a fringe benefit. It is birthright and MY due benevolence, as your Lord. The birthright is the beginning, the first fruits, the foundation, the cornerstone and the genesis.
In all its power, freedom is not the prize in the race, it is merely the starting block, given to every believer. Through freedom you are capable of achieving the real prize, to reign in Eternal Glory, with ME.
1 Corinthian 7:22-23
And remember, if you were a slave when the Lord called you, you are now free in the Lord. And if you were free when the Lord called you, you are now a slave of Christ. God paid a high price for you, so don’t be enslaved by the world.
Bid onto me according to your word. Lord, I see the anointing and I see the promise, but how does it happen? You are the God that makes a way out of no way and I see no way. Help me with my vision, I need your help to see it. Glory to the one, who sits on the thrown.
As I am gaining in the spirit, things are being lost in the natural realms. My ego and my pride are taking on collateral damage. I am now realizing how much power, the opinions of man, have had over me. Glory to the Lamb.
As you expose my hidden parts, I am ashamed of what I see. Purge me Father. I thank you, for the good work, you are doing in me, help my heart in the interim, to press on. Glory to your Spirit.
What a mess, I see the old me as grotesque and yet, I do not feel worthy of the new me either. Nevertheless, I surrender to the transformation and I except the blood washed me. Glory to your name. Amen.
For with God nothing shall be impossible. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
MY permanent assignment is to completely cover, every aspect of your life. Your eyes open daily because of ME. As I dress the lilies of the field with splendor and form each mountain top, perfectly.
You being more important than these, I have reserved MY best, to dress and form you. Every day is brand new, every moment is brand new, every second is brand new and is a perfect gift from ME.
As the sunshine fills every crevice of the earth. It is all for you and your enjoyment. I AM blessing you, thinking of you and making a way for you. MY commitment to you has not wavered.
Rejoice, the Lord is on your side and your enemies are defeated. All things are working together for your benefit. An exponential increase is coming, because of your fortified trust in ME.
I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
When you stand tall, I AM there. When you fall, I AM there. When depression seems to envelop you, I AM there. When everything built is unraveling, before your eyes, then too I AM there.
The world says, a situation is either a win or lose. It says, only the strong survive. It says that you are either a success or a failure. The world, however, did not consult ME, regarding you.
As the Lover of your soul, I have a vested interest in you, just you, every bump, every bruise, every scar and imperfection. You are the prize, the award, the focus and MY long term goal.
Be mindful of who you are living for, a man can only serve a single master, selfishness or selflessness. The most successful measures in this carnal world, have no value in the Kingdom of Heaven.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I hold ‘the impossible’ and ‘the never going to happen’ in MY fingertips. What you are hoping for and secretly desire is a matter of faith. These are answered in your Spirit, activated by trust and belief.
You have had both for others and have prayed for many, but it is now your moment to be made whole. The unwavering faith you have had for them is now shifting to an unwavering faith for yourself.
Under crisis and pressures, your belief system was revealed and it is time to face it. Call each false god out by name and face it. Is it pain, is it lack, is it loneliness, is it fear, is it worry or could it be rejection?
Be true to your own heart and admit what your idol has been. Lay it at MY feet, in surrender and let ME rebuild you. Do an inventory and consider anything that gets more time, energy or attention, before ME.
“Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.”
Christ is your chief intercessor, there is no demon that can compare to a Son of God praying. A son of God that is Holy and a son of God that has surrendered. Surrender to MY word and MY will for you.
Surrender to ME and I will fight the battle. No arrows by day or fires by night, can harm you. The enemy that roams around as a roaring lion, can attempt to intimidate, but a hedge of protection is around you.
Chaos may be looming, do not submit to it. The fear, the anxiety are no match for ME. Where MY Presence abounds, there will be peace, abide in ME. Choose MY peace over the chaos.
Settle your heart, there are many passions competing for your attention. Each is important, but one must have priority. Choose what makes your soul free, choose to continuously abide in ME.
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
Who do you need to let go and finally forgive? Forgiveness is a deep well and returning for a refreshing can occur, as much as, you need. It may even be for the same set of circumstances.
The thoughts of the offense may rise again and again, but you must choose forgiveness again and again. Healing is more than a single event, it is an entire process with a beginning, middle and end.
The process produces wholeness, the deeper the hurt and betrayal, may mean laying it at MY feet, many times. Allow the power of the process to do its perfect work, continue to pursue the process in front of you.
As your conscious mind is ready to heal another part of the pain. It will come to mind and it can then be submitted to the ME, through your spirit. Trust MY process and you will be made whole.
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
You need more than fellowship with ME, I have made you for relationships. You can accomplish more when you walk with others and walking with them compliments your walk with ME.
Like David and Jonathan, your hearts can be intertwined with others. What will be birth from these eternal relationships will be foundational, not just for you, but for your children.
Covenant partners, unto death do you part. In this will be community, accountability and vitality. You will always have a place to recharge your batteries, personally, spiritually and professionally.
As you submit to them and they will submit to you, hard things will become easier, because you are attacking life as a team. Each one praying, reinforcing one another and strategically moving in the kingdom.
1 Samuel 18:1-4
After David had finished talking with Saul, he met Jonathan, the king’s son. There was an immediate bond between them, for Jonathan loved David. From that day on Saul kept David with him and wouldn’t let him return home. And Jonathan made a solemn pact with David, because he loved him as he loved himself. Jonathan sealed the pact by taking off his robe and giving it to David, together with his tunic, sword, bow, and belt.
I made you to be a light. To be an extension of the good news, to add value to each individual and situation you touch. Turn your defenses and the ability, to be offended, off. Hear without prejudice.
Live in the light and the new mercies of a new day. You will be amazed, as you abide in and look for the light, that you will always find it. Continuously, remind people of the light in them, because it is always there.
Shift the atmosphere with your presence and refuse to be merely impressive. Choose to be an impression of love, light and life. Every heart and every mind is desperate for this.
Inside of your ordinary, is another soul’s extraordinary. A simple act of kindness, a smile or a sincere greeting can restore hope. The full capacity of the love and light, that you carry, cannot be measured.
Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body is full of darkness. Be careful, then, that the light within you is not darkness. So if your whole body is full of light, with no part of it in darkness, you will be radiant, as though a lamp were shining on you.”
Your victory is not connected to the outcome, but to obedience in doing the work. Be faithful in your work and consistent in demonstrating love, peace and kindness.
Let ME worry about the outcomes, for they are MINE. Your focus must remain on pleasing ME and not man. MY scorecard is the only one that matters, continue to press toward the mark.
MY calling is high and man’s callings are low. Look to ME and take your eyes off men. Continue to pray, to fast and to spend time in MY presence. For it is, I that will make the crooked places straight.
Every relationship, every situation, every mistake, every missed opportunity, every failed mission or anything you care to be restored, will be made whole. Whole by keeping your gaze steadfast on ME.
I will go before you And make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze And cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel.
