#261 – It Was Love

The assignment is to love, even when it hurts. When MY people let you down, continue to love, when they break your heart, rejoice. Why, because you are becoming Christ-like. This is the cost of unconditional love and you have been called to it.

Love listens, love soothes, love waits, love covers, love unites, love answers, love praises, love conquers, love assists, love stands, love helps, love works, love continues, love equips, love witnesses and love heals.

Let your words begin and end with love. Give love, as a gift, to everyone that you see and touch. As you see MY sons and daughters sick, hurting and needing help, remember that I love them fully, as I love you.

Love is more than a command for ME. My DNA make up is love. Love is the substance of who I AM and the building block of all that was made. You being MY finest creation, carry MY very breath. It was love, that I breathe into man giving him life. LOVE.

1 Corinthians 13:4-5
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

#260 – Move with MY Holiness

The anointing needed for the next season will fall, once you step into it. You can only become a master when you leave apprenticeship. I understand your reservations, but I AM asking you to trust the ME, inside you.

When your season has expired, is it time to move. What I did there was Holy, but you must learn the difference between a Holy thing and the source of all Holiness. Move with MY holiness.

The resources for the next season of your life are contained within that season. The finances, the energy, the master plan, the people, the new information and the grace you need are waiting in the next season.

Have courage and move into the next phase with confidence. I AM the God of your past and your future Glory. Embrace this new season and let the old manna go. What you need, I have obligated MYSELF to fulfill.

Exodus 16:4
Then the LORD said to Moses, “Look, I’m going to rain down food from heaven for you. Each day the people can go out and pick up as much food as they need for that day. I will test them in this to see whether or not they will follow my instructions.

#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.”

#239 – Eternal Bricks

You are alive, though tattered and bruised. Life is still yours and all that has been lost and gained, are the lessons. You have the answers to the questions, that many or fearful to ask.

As Jesus spoke to Peter saying, on this truth (cornerstone) I will build my church and the gates of hell, cannot prevail. The cornerstone becomes clear, the eternal is built on truth, then the cornerstones of your life, must be the same.

All that you have seen and conquered are the building blocks of your very hope. Many mistake what is seen, as permanent and the unseen is not considered. The kingdom of heaven is built by the substance and evidence of things unseen.

In that, be humble and thankful for each bruise, each scar, every hurt and all the rejections. Why, because they have built the unseen, the truth and the eternal bricks of your FAITH.

Matthew 16:18
And I say also to you, That you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

#238 – Freedom is Restraint

Freedom is beyond free. It will cost you all that you have. Inside of the vastness of freedom is restraint, your thoughts, words and behaviors must be governed.
Having a free will guarantees your ability to have a unique perspective, point of view and an opinion.

However, the freedom to determine one’s own life, will never override TRUTH. The power to speak when it is mandatory is purchased by silence paid when emotions and egos run high.

The fluidity of your finances is in direct correlation to avoiding frivolous spending. Freedom is the conviction that distinguishes a real want from a real need.

Slavery, as unjust as, it is, the composition is simple. Freedom, to the contrary is rich in its complexity. Freedom is comprised of the responsibility for what you touch and the accountability for what you cannot.

Galatians‬ ‭5:13‬
“For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.”

#237 – The Birthright

The birthright is beyond money. It is the cumulative of blessings, experiences and exposures that await activation in your bloodline. It is the blessing of a thousand years.

The birthright is accessible to each generation that choses to abide in the promises and the already rebuked curses. It cannot be taken or lost, unless it is willfully forfeited.

The birthright has the DNA of God the Father and each of your forefathers. It is the spiritual inheritance. Each footstool made by your fathers is equally yours and every giant slain was for your namesake.

Every demon, devil and generational curse your fathers were victorious over, are final. You, nor your seed will ever have to face or fight the same devil, demon or curse again.

Deuteronomy 7:9
Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations.

#236 – Eternally Infallible

It will get better and at MY appointments, things will change. This situation is not forever and you will survive. The struggle is immense, though it is not the end of your story, but the beginning.

Be faithful to your purposes and know that your gifts are entrusted within you, to accomplish a very specific goal. Consider this, the predestined assignment is the guarantor for your life.

I have never failed and have never been wrong. MY intentions are always fulfilled, so cast your lots on ME and bet on the Heavens. Anything that is infallible is derived from ME and is eternally infallible.

You are MY infallible plan and MY system to restore the world. A hope for every soul, the tangible, touchable earthly showing of MY regenerative plan. Remain in ME and I will remain in you.

John 15:5
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing

#235 – Tap into ME

The world will try to convince you, that who you are and how you are made is not enough, that being something else is better. Not smart, not strong, not beautiful, no matter what, you are just not enough.

This lie is highly effective, it causes two problems. As you conform to an image of another and fulfill a role not your own. Your divine position is left vacant and simultaneously block another’s way.

If you lack energy, tap into ME. If you lack confidence, ask of ME. If you lack strength, remember I AM omnipotent. If you lack clarity, pray for wisdom. If you lack control, ask he who controls all things.

The magnitude of who I AM is found in MY Glory. Every aspect of who I AM and what I do has MY DNA. All MY sons and daughters have this same DNA. Finding the true you is found in truthful seeking ME.

Ephesians 1:3-5
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.

#234 – Better Men have Fallen

What is your heart searching for? Is it peace, affirmation or affection? Neither are wrong or even bad, in perspective. If balanced and weighed against MY will, then each is justified.

However, when a natural desire overrides your spirit. When a gift becomes greater than the gift, giving God. You are now choosing another god. Be careful, many a man has been overcome by his ambitions.

Better men have fallen, what are you doing to safeguard your heart? Pride says, I have it under control, no need to worry. You and pride are both fools. When souls are on the line, you must take every thought captive.

Even the thought, behind each string of thoughts. Whose righteousness do you have, does it come from ME or is it self appointed and self secured. Two have gone before you on the same path, Lucifer and Job. O’ King find your glory, search for MY heart.

Proverbs 25:2
It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out.

#233 – A Triple Braided Cord

When you move into position, the anointing will fall. When you fully commit, then the resources will be made available. It is all about timing, trust and obedience. Even though you do not see it now.

What I AM asking you to do is going to be difficult, but it will not be impossible. It will be extremely tiring, but it will not deplete you. It will be a hard thing, but it will be worthwhile.

I have placed a covenant within you, a covenant within MY people and a covenant within the earth, each is connected and is dependent on the others. A triple braided cord is not easily broken.

Let go of everything you do not understand. I need you to obey, one command at a time. Once you finish the one, come back for another and another. Over time, you and I together will build a Holy confidence.

Ecclesiastes 4:12
Though one person may be overpowered by another, two people can resist one opponent. A triple-braided rope is not easily broken.

#232 – AM I not Sending You?

Like Gideon, your adversary and your problems will soon be destroyed. The issues may seem big and the numerous enemies may seem strong. Yet it will be, as if you were fighting just one man.

The power to prevail is not based on inner strengths, but in who has called you, to the fight. The fight is not yours. The winning or the losing is not up to you. The battle is MINE, I AM the Lord.

Gideon was the weakest man, from the weakest clan, but he was the one I chosen to save MY people. I called Gideon, a ‘Mighty Warrior’, based on the promises placed inside him.

Like many, Gideon suffered with self doubt and insecurities, but your resume’ does not matter. The question before Gideon, is the question before you now. “Am I not sending you?”

Judges 6:16
I will be with you. And you will destroy the Midianites, as if you were fighting against one man.

#231 – Overcoming Disappointment

Find balance between love and the law, between relationships and rules. Love overrides the law and relationship is more important than rules. Laws along with rules can be beneficial, but should be abandoned, when no longer expedient.

The enemy of your peace is in your expectations of others. You can desire the best for people, but they must find their own desire and purpose. A dream cannot be delegated or transferred, it must be birthed by each bearer.

Overcoming disappointment in those you are charged to care for, will be the testing of your faith, patience and commitment. Nevertheless, these are the assignments from On High. You will be held accountable, equally, them for rightly receiving and you for rightly delivering.

Do your part in the natural, by securing a foundation of love and releasing to ME, what is beyond your control. This is the supernatural and it is handled in the spirit. This is a process and a matter of MY promises versus your level of trust. There is an issue because your word, your faith and your trust in ME, is not in alignment.

Psalms 118:8-9
It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes.”

#230 – A Daily Portion

I see the hurt and the pain. It was unjust and extremely unfair, but hear this! You will survive, you will live and not die. I have given you a daily portion, to last beyond this moment. Just focus on today, tomorrow has its own.

It is time to let go of the pain and the perpetrators, to search diligently for forgiveness. Not for their sake, but for your own. Can you forgive those that betrayed you and that robbed you of innocence?

The most difficult person to forgive is the one in the mirror. The moment has come to give yourself permission to accept forgiveness, to be guilt and shame free. You have punished yourself enough.

Stop suffering at your own hands, it will not change anything. What is done is done. Stand up, move away from the old you and do better. You have paid a high cost, walk in your freedom.

Isaiah‬ ‭43:2‬
“When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.”

#229 – Weep When Needed

Take some time to witness all the beautiful things, I have made for you to enjoy. Why would I create such splendor, if I wanted you to suffer? The wonder of a sunrise or a sunset is magnificent to see.

Every aspect of who you are is important to ME. I am so powerful, that even your sinfulness, cannot deter MY Glory. What I commanded of you will be fulfilled, to the letter and that which was determined before your mother’s womb, will be achieved.

No matter the level of hell conjured, whether by omissions or commissions, the adversary will not and cannot prevail against ME. Despite the darkness seen and the levels of demonic warfare on display, the Light shining from the Kingdom of Heaven, is well at hand.

Weep when needed, but do not worry. In times of weakness, worship. In moments of pain, praise. When the weight of the world is on your shoulders, dig into the word. Use the creative power in your lungs to speak vitality, speak peace and to speak MY promises.

John 1:3-5
Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

#228 – Take up thy Bed

The choice to worship or worry, it is yours. You can raise your hands in surrender, to the process or the defeat. The differences between hope and hopelessness are a matter of faith.

What you accept as the truth, becomes your truth, though it be a lie. When lies become standards, it is like building a house on sand. The edifice is built quickly and rests on nothing.

Your value systems are moved by the wind, the rain and the storms. Nothing is secure, because elements change you, causing you to live from storm to storm, from lie to lie and from calamity to calamity.

Take up thy bed and walk, play cripple no longer. You are strong and very capable, stop living under a lie, you are powerful. Stand up straight and start showing the world, how greatly, I have made you.

John‬ ‭5:7-9
“The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.”

#227 – MY Thoughts are Higher

There as many opinions, points of views and perspectives that the world will offer and even demand that you accept. It is time to question some things, How does that opinion align with eternity?

The kingdoms of this world are moved by the notions of men that have not been washed with the blood, are enslaved by sin and serve the prince of the air. The prevailing ideas of the day are determined by the best argument.

A Spirit of self deception has been empowered to choose what is and is not truth. MY will and MY word are not debatable. I AM Sovereign and Eternal, MY thoughts are higher than your thoughts.

This is a clarion call, choose today, MY plan or man’s plan, MY word or man’s word, MY opinion of you or man’s opinion of you and specifically, MY will for your life or man’s will for your life.

2 Corinthians ‭10:5
We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ.

#226 – Stand Strong

Consider what you have been through. Remember that many others have tried and failed where you are standing strong. Perhaps not glamorous, but you are still standing and the experience has made you fortified.

Foundations and foundational people are rarely seen or spoken of. Yet upon them, the weight of a structure, a civilized society and the kingdoms of this world, rest. Foundations are key.

Be a foundational spouse, a foundational parent and a foundational citizen. Let your deals be honorable and secured with the bond of your word. Do the righteous thing, even when righteousness costs you more.

The world should know, you are mine, because of your unparalleled integrity. You are marked with a reputation of honesty, that precedes you. Always be fair, faithful and remain a foundational aspect of MY kingdom.

Proverbs‬ ‭10:25‬
“When the storms of life come, the wicked are whirled away, but the godly have a lasting foundation.”

#225 – There is More

Ask yourself a hard question. Are you able to honestly say, you are in agreement with ME? Are you truly MY partner, on earth, carrying out MY purposes and plans? Are we aligned?

The truth is that you do not belong to ME fully. I only have some of you, not all. You are holding a significant piece of your heart from ME. Whatever the reason either trust or fear, just know there is more.

If you will abide in ME, I will abide in you. If you remain in ME and MY covenant in you, then there will be no limit to your asking and receiving. I AM an inexhaustible source of great power.

I AM the vine of your prosperity. A temporary god of temporary things is useless. I AM a better God, than anyone or anything that holds a piece of your heart. Abide in ME, that I may abide in you.

John 15:4-7
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

#224 – Liberty Equals Life

I AM releasing you. You are released from filling shoes designed for others and released from performing. Performing for people that do not matter and do not have your best interests at heart.

I have come to set the captives free, as MY disciples, you are not robots programmed to be holy. I formed you for freedom. MY followers are free thinkers, that find truth and power in MY word.

Be mindful of religious clicks and steer clear of spiritual pettiness. MY presence and MY call always produces freeness. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Liberty equals Life.

There is a place for denominations and for doctrine. Neither, however, can take the place of spirit and truth. Guard your faith and watch carefully for seductive spirits and the doctrines of demons.

Luke‬ ‭4:18-19‬
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the LORD’s favor has come. ”

#223 – Love Is Doing

What does heaven celebrate? It rejoices when a soul is set free and enters eternal life. It is euphoric when a wayward child returns home. It savors when love is chosen over fear.

It revels when cycles of pain are being broken. It rejoices when a child honors a mother and a father. It is joyous when a marriage is restored and it praises, when faith heals a body.

There is so much to celebrate and to memorialize if you are looking. Daily, lives are being changed irreparably for good and generational curses are being broken. Love is defying pain, hurt and fear.

Compassion and empathy are on the rise, love is doing what no army or government can ever do. It is restoring hearts and minds. Love is winning and that is the only victory that matters.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever!

#222 – Receive the Truth

What are you becoming? I have a specific plan and a desired outcome for you. The popular views of the day and life goals of the masses are far below MY standards and the fullness MY potential.

As I am sovereign, what I am building in you is also, sovereign. Complete, self-sufficient and self-reliant, a strong building is one that emerges from the bedrock. You are being built from the substratum to serve as a backbone for society.

The intellectual fads of the day that serve as motivation and inspiration will fade, as the seasons pass. Place your confidence in the rock of MY word and MY Eternal presence, that seals it.

Seek the truth and receive the truth. Seek the short term and receive the short term. Seek the imperishable and receive the imperishable. Seek a compromise and receive a compromise. Seek the Lord God and receive the Lord God.

Jeremiah 29:13-14
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile
