#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.

#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.

#20 – Humble Yourself

Have you surrendered? Are you still working within your own power? Reasoning and strategy can only go so far. It is the anointing that destroys the yoke. The yoke of pain, bondage and fear exist in the spiritual realm and require spiritual warfare.

Use your weapons of praise, worship, the word, prayer, intercession and serving to defeat the enemy. Where I am sending you, there will be conflicts, these are your assignments. To find a resolution in the most difficult situations, to find peace when all have chosen war.

It is easy to make war or to avoid conflict altogether, it is difficult and requires a shrewdness to make peace. A Peacemaker is a divine role that uses skill, strength and a cunning power to establish a peace that can only come from the heavenly’s.

Surrender to the Peace Making power that I have placed inside you. Your plan is good, but a plan formed and forged by MY Spirit can be wielded to dash a mighty blow against the adversary’s strongholds.

1 Peter 5:6-11
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

#19 – You Are Free

Exchange your pain with ME. I will give you beauty for ashes. The pain can have meaning and set others free, if it is examined and filtered through purpose. The hurt shaped you, the suffering molded you, but it does not define you.

Every disappointment, every mistake, every defeat, every crooked place, every worry, every regret, every sin, every doubt, every shame, every weakness, every thought and every concern are extinguished. It is time to lay them at MY feet.

No longer will the past shape your future. You are free and do not owe anyone anything. You do not owe your family and you do not owe your friends. You do not owe a religion and you do not owe any relationship, your peace.

I AM salvation. MY eternal gift is liberty, not a bond servant or a slave you are a son and your freedom is a birthright. To live, move and to have being in the privilege of relationship with ME. Release the pain, accept the freedom.

Romans 9:18-23
Because of the weakness of your human nature, I am using the illustration of slavery to help you understand all this. Previously, you let yourselves be slaves to impurity and lawlessness, which led ever deeper into sin. Now you must give yourselves to be slaves to righteous living so that you will become holy.
When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the obligation to do right. And what was the result? You are now ashamed of the things you used to do, things that end in eternal doom. But now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves of God. Now you do those things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

#18 – I Value Souls

You can have it all, prosperity and peace, in ME. Compromise is not required. It is a matter of priority. Why worship the silver and gold? Worship the one who holds it all. In MY kingdom money is lowly and souls hold all the value.

In the world, mammon matters more than a soul. Money is the ruler of men’s hearts and minds. It is all they want, desire and chase. This is an empty pursuit. They pursue it, consume it and they hoard it, to find it is meaningless.

Have you considered, what the creator values? I gave you MY best: MY Breath, MY Spirit, MY Life and MY Wind. I gave you a soul, that was forsaken. Through love, I bought you back, for ME. You were bought with a price.

The cost was a life for many lives, not mammon. The highest value can be found in ME. The only things that have value are the things, that I touch and give life too! You, I have touched and you, I have breathe life into.

Acts 17:24-29
“He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in man-made temples, and human hands can’t serve his needs—for he has no needs. He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need. From one manf he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries. “His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him—though he is not far from any one of us. For in him we live and move and exist. As some of yourg own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’ And since this is true, we shouldn’t think of God as an idol designed by craftsmen from gold or silver or stone.

#17 – Evaluate Everything

Sow a seed, be pure, think pure, move pure & walk pure. Begin to remove darkness from your environment. That which does not produce life, must be cut off, immediately. Evaluate everything, what you see, hear & say.

In me there is no shadow of turning, so shall it be with you. Question all that you consume. Consider every relationship. Consider every thought process. Consider every behavior. Consider the origins of every dream.

The presence of darkness indicates an absence of light. Allow ME into every aspect of your life. I want to be GOD of your intents, motives and desires. Make ME LORD of even your fantasies. Make ME Lord over every passion.

No one is capable beside ME, to satisfy. I will satisfy, if you drink from ME. Drink from ME and never thirst again. Think on ME and you will have peace. Focus on ME and the confusion will become clarity.

James 1:16:-18
Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.
