#150 – Dust Yourself Off

The milk was spilled and the deed is done. It is over now and you made it to the other side, bruised, beaten and broken, but you are alive. Take a moment to evaluate, the many blessings that remain. Rejoice that your mind is still sound.

It is lunacy to overcome the worst ordeal in your life, beating the odds, to now, live as a second class citizen. Do not give the enemy a lifetime pass to shame you, for a momentary decision. Who you are is not what you do.

Dust yourself off, hold your head high and decide your path to healing. Take a moment to celebrate living. Everyday of living is a new lesson. As the omniscient God, I only train those, who I will soon give power and charge.

Nothing and no one can shut the doors, I AM opening for you. There is not a scheme or plan capable of being made, that will undermine ME. I AM for you and not against you. Heaven and Earth will pass away, before any promise goes unfulfilled.

Colossians 3:10-11
Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him. In this new life, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us.

#148 – Pass the Baton (Part 2)

There is a baton passed from season to season, a baton passed from generation to generation and a baton passed from the spirit realms to the earthly realms. Before it was Moses’s staff, then Israel’s Ark and now the Cross of Christ.

In life’s race there will be straightaways, uphills, downhills and curves. The straightaways are optimal conditions, requiring minimal focus. The uphills are the times of struggle and require perseverance and a focus.

The downhills are the times of prosperity and require restraint and humility. The curves are different, they can be times of trouble or great shifting. The curves are best handled by leaning into them, trust ME in the curves.

Submitting to the curve is assuming a posture of surrender, allowing inertia to dictate your velocity. Keeping momentum, is in knowing when to focus, persevere, be humble, use restraint or to surrender 100% to the process.

2 Corinthians 5:14-17
Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now! This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

#146 – An Earthly Deficit

You are a reflection of the light, connected to, the true and living light. It was ME that said, let there Be. I Am the source of all illumination and becoming the light is not your role. We are a team, MY dominion is Heaven and your dominion is earth.

Becoming too heavenly minded will lead to an earthly deficit. It is difficult, even impossible to be offended and anointed at the same time. The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy, through sin, you have taken on the enemy’s identities: becoming a thief, a murderer and a destroyer.

You are replacing your purpose, your calling and your gifting for a sinful disposition. It is time for ownership: things you have said, things you have done and things you are thinking. The results have been disastrous and people have been hurt.

The day of calling wrong, right and right, wrong are over. I need you, to get to a place where the actions and words of men, against you, do not matter. The only thing that matters is what I command you to do and who you are to become.

2 Timothy 2:24-26
Again I say, don’t get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights. A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people. Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth. Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants.

#140 – Times of Testing

In the moments of turmoil are where you will find the most sincere peace. Discovering faith in the chaos makes it all worthwhile and these times of testing, ensure a knowing of what a faith is made.

Growth is when you can see the victory and vanquishment in the same light, being aware that both are working together for your good. It is a shift in your prayers from deliverance and to becoming decisive.

Being fully persuaded, that the trouble in your world can be seen as a problem or the process, I Am using, to shape and mold you. It is your decision whether to lament or to be MY life of lamentation.

You are not a victim of circumstances, but are a preselected victor. The obstacles before you are no longer seen as predicaments of punishment, but are the processes of promotion asked for in prayer.

Romans 4:18-22
Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as he had been told, “So shall your offspring be.” Without weakening in his faith, he acknowledged the decrepitness of his body (since he was about a hundred years old) and the lifelessness of Sarah’s womb. Yet he did not waver through disbelief in the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God was able to do what He had promised. This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness

#76 – The Lord Disciplines

I chasten those I love and rebuke MY beloved, not to harm, but a cutting for the pruning. I do not dispense justice, I am justice. I am not fair, I am sovereign and I am righteous. What the world sees as failure, is MY divine process working for you.

This divide between two truths has made you lukewarm. You desire the prize and despise the process. You demand a level of grace that you rarely bestow. You want to eat the meat, but do not participate in the hunt.

How can you expect to reap peace and sow war? You have been indoctrinated by the worlds values and are a wonder in your own eyes. You pray for forgiveness and offer none. You seek places of high honor, while hiding a low self esteem.

You have traded an eternal vision for a carnal one. I want you to return to ME, by removing the foreign objects from your eyes, so that you can see ME, yourself and others correctly. Your sight has been poor and resulting in a poor vision.

Hebrews 12:6-8
For the LORD disciplines those he loves,
and he punishes each one he accepts as his child.” As you endure this divine discipline, remember that God is treating you as his own children. Who ever heard of a child who is never disciplined by its father? If God doesn’t discipline you as he does all of his children, it means that you are illegitimate and are not really his children at all.

#49 – MY Image and MY likeness

I want you to push past the shame and be obedient. You have placed your gifts and assignments on a back shelf, because you did not feel worthy. Men have limited who you are and limited who I have called you to be.

Well before the issues, the errors, the mistakes, the failures and the shame, you were mine. Being foreknown in the womb means that MY Glory is not something you are hoping to achieve, but the redeeming of something lost.

Tap into your birthright and tap into the one, that loves you incredibly and is incredulous about your infirmities. Your flaws, nor your imperfections and not even a single short comings are too hard for ME.

When I look to you all I see is beautiful, all I can see is MY Image and MY likeness. I see a son and a daughter, not the mistakes or the failures. All that I see and have hoped to see is MY prodigal child returning to the home built for them.

2 Corinthians 5:1-5
For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this tent we groan, longing to put on our heavenly dwelling, if indeed by putting it on[a] we may not be found naked. For while we are still in this tent, we groan, being burdened—not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.

#44 – MY TRUTH Endures

The serpent’s voice was heard over mine. This is the original mistake made in the garden. To believe another voice over the TRUTH. To accept the urging of any spirit or any man over MY word is the original lie.

Your belief systems are the battle grounds and anything held outside of ME is held outside of truth. Persuasion to believe an alternative version of facts is a perversion of your inheritance. Your inheritance is MY truth.

Why trade truth for a lie? MY truth endures as each lie falls and withers. The heavens were built on my truth and the earth was also built on my truth. Why do you think your world can be built on anything other than truth?

It was truth for Adam in the garden, it was truth for Moses in the desert, it was truth for David in the wilderness and it was truth for Jesus on the cross. All that has been made, all that matters, all that perseveres and all that produces life is built on MY TRUTH.

John 4:23-24
But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

#43 – I Have a Plan

Go now, move now, the irons are the hottest and it is time to strike at that deep goal of your soul. The wind at your back is MY breath. You are ready and MY hand is on you. The small game is over, it is now time to be aggressive in the things, I have shown you.

You have been quiet and conservative, but now it is time to be courageous. I plan to baffle you and to blow your mind. The table is being set directly before your adversaries. Do not worry about them, one that opposes you is merely a disconnected soul, from ME.

I have a plan and a provision for them too. Your obedience and subsequent abundance will testify of MY Goodness, this is the best testimony and the best witness. As you are made a spectacle before the world, carry the same humble nature, that has carried you to this moment.

In MY Spirit is MY Life and in MY Life is MY Breathe. In MY Breathe is MY wind. Use it to move now, for your sake and for the sakes of those watching. Move with the authority of the Kingdom of Heaven. Move decisively and MY Glory will be added, falling along as you go.

Psalms 33:6-11
The LORD merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born. He assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs. Let the whole world fear the LORD, and let everyone stand in awe of him. For when he spoke, the world began! It appeared at his command. The LORD frustrates the plans of the nations and thwarts all their schemes. But the LORD’s plans stand firm forever; his intentions can never be shaken.

#40 – You Have Done Well

Have you considered the outcome, if you gave your all? For once, consider trusting ME 100% in an endeavor. All your faith, energy and power focused on just ME. A moment, that you surrender in totality and believe ME without regulation.

What could the possibilities be, if you placed no concerns to the opinions of others or to the chance of failing? What could you accomplish with ALL your efforts applied? What would the alignment of MY will and your will establish in this Earthly realm?

By most accounts you have done well. To exceed your contemporaries is good, but I have called you to much higher and have equipped you, to do more. All that I placed in your heart, do it and do it with all the might you can muster.

I AM more than you have seen and you are more, then you have given. I want you to exhaust yourself for MY will, use all your energy, all your creativity and all your time, because the kingdom is at hand and souls are on the line. Give to ME your best.

Colossians 3:23-25
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

#35 – You are MY Prize

I AM a constant eternal force. I control space, time and life. Physics, mathematics and all the sciences are the study of MY anatomy and what I have formed. All that I establish is self sustaining. All that I create prospers.

I AM steadfast, never failing and cannot lie. I AM the uncreated one, all that is seen and unseen was made by ME. I AM the only thing in this world or in the next, that is certain. I AM the undisputed king of this world and any world to come.

I make demons tremble and evil spirits flee. I AM glory, I AM splendor, I AM the personification of love and I AM crazy about you. I AM for you, I AM in love with you, I have a crown waiting for you.

You are the apple of MY eye, I left Heaven to come to earth to save you. You are MY prize and MY greatest treasure. You are MY lover and I AM your KING, everything about you is pleasing to ME, I adore you and you are MY every thought.

Deuteronomy 7:6-8
“For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth. It was not because you were more in number than any other people that the Lord set his love on you and chose you, for you were the fewest of all peoples, but it is because the Lord loves you and is keeping the oath that he swore to your fathers, that the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
