#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

#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.

#38 – Be Healed

I can help you with your short comings, if you allow ME. I can help you with the things no one knows, the secrets and what you have chosen to avoid. What are you hiding? What are you ignoring and pretending is not there? It is not, too hard for me!

What you have concealed, can be healed. Dare to speak the unspoken prayers. Confess your weakness, that you may exchange it for MY strength. You are worried about your secret sin and failures. You have the wrong opinions, as a priority.

Be concerned with the one, that can give you a new heart and a new mind. I always begin with the end in mind and what you are challenged by is not a challenge for ME. I am waving at you from the finish line, because your finish is a guaranteed.

Guaranteed, If you will not faint. It is easy to quit and there are many reason to surrender. Many are falling, to left of you and to the right of you, but you must center your focus on ME. Press, press, press my good and faithful servant, press. I am waiting.

Psalms 91:1-8
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 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. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.

#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.

#32 – I Hold The Cosmos

There are no accidents or coincidences. I balance the heavens and the earth with MY Word. I hold the cosmos in place and I hung each star. With more than the same power, I AM holding you. Your purpose will be fulfilled.

The chaos you see is produced by man functioning apart from ME. There is no need to fear or to be controlled by the things, that fear and are controlled by ME. Even chaos is subject and does MY bidding.

Your current circumstances are temporary and I AM in complete control. Let the worry go, give the stress to ME and find ME in your storm. I AM always in the boat with you. I hold the keys to sin, death and the grave.

When you feel powerless and the most out of control, this is when MY exceedingly abundant power is most potent. What you can do is useful in the confines of time, but what I can do affects ALL eternity.

Hebrews 1:2-4
In these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels, as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

#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.
