#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

#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.

#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.

#34 – Chase MY Heart

Seek MY face and not MY hand. Seek ME and not what you can obtain from ME. I do not need money to bless you. I do not need possessions or positions to bless you. I do not need man to bless you.

The blessings of life are beyond man‘s insights. Religion is making a fool of you. Don’t do this and don’t do that, I am the GOD of YES and AMEN. I AM the God that said, Let there be and all that I made remains, until I say different.

Through ME the river of goodness flows, there is no peace, no hope and no joy, without a touch from ME. Listen to others if you will and it will guaranteedly cause a deficit in your world. It will cause you to chase MY hand.

There is no need to chase MY hand, chase MY heart and I will give you MY hand. I am more than a Savior, I am a Father, a Friend and a Confidant. Choose today, to chase the better thing, relationship with ME.

2 Corinthians 1:19-22
For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not Yes and No, but in him it is always Yes. 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. And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.

#30 – Slaves, Servants & Sons

You have been sold a short cut, a way to getting freedom in the flesh, that bypasses the soul and spirit. This will never be so, the laws of sowing and reaping cannot be violated. Many have discovered the immutable laws of the natural realm, but do not know the LAW GIVER.

When you know ME. You are privileged to participate, in more than the benefits of knowing the law, but in the inheritance, the laws protect. This is about inheritance, about the distinction, between moving under a blessing and outside of a blessing.

Slaves, servants and sons all see and know the blessing, but they experience it in different ways. The slave sees & knows, but can only touch the blessing. The servant sees and knows, but can only present the blessing. The sons are different, they see and know, but are able to partake of the blessing.

They can eat the blessing, they can drink the blessing, they can wear the blessing, they can live in the blessing, they can preserve the blessing for their children’s children and they can bestow blessings on the world and impact the culture. I have called you out of darkness and into the light, not for the purpose of slavery or servanthood, but for SONSHIP.

Galatians 4:3-7
So also, when we were children, we were enslaved under the basic principles of the world. But when the time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive our adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father! So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, you are also an heir through God.

#28 – Only MY Glory Matters

Aside from ME is bondage. Why? Because I am freedom. Aside from ME is death. Why? Because I AM life. Aside from ME is depression. Why? Because I AM hope.

You do not have a bondage, death or depression problem, you have a lack of ME. None of these can stand before ME. Why, because fear is subject to ME and must do my bidding.

You have not seen, you have not heard and it has yet to enter the heart of your understanding, how great I AM. What you see as problems, are merely opportunities, to demonstrate MY Glory.

Be clear in knowing, that only MY Glory matters. You can say sickness, I say Glory. You can say sadness, I say Glory and you can say pain, I say Glory.

2 Corinthian 4:13-16
But we continue to preach because we have the same kind of faith the psalmist had when he said, “I believed in God, so I spoke.” We know that God, who raised the Lord Jesus,d will also raise us with Jesus and present us to himself together with you. All of this is for your benefit. And as God’s grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory. That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits aree being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 18So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.

#24 – Keep Pressing

Put your hand to the plow and look to ME. Do not turn to look backward because your future is not there. The ground beneath you is holy and designed to support you in this season, when the season moves, so do you.

Your success in this endeavor will require you wrapping your arms around something new and perhaps foreign. I am guiding you inch by inch, breath by breath, move by move and step by step.

Keep pressing, past the pain, the errors and the defeats. They have all been covered, completely, cancelled and separated from you like the east from the west. The season you have entered is new for you, but old for ME.

It is old for ME, because I formed it when formed you. This is a season that is more than deserving, this is a season that has been destined. Predestined, provided and approved by ME. Walk firmly in this, as a resident and not a visitor.

Psalms 139:13-16
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
