#424 – Chasing the Demons

Eventually the voids, that matter in life cannot be filled with things. They can only be filled with everlasting aspects of ME. Money, fortune, fame or possessions, none of them will fill you like MY presence.

Spending efforts impressing people, who matter less over time and who cannot assist you in finding what you truly desire are exhausting. You are made to have peace, eternal power and unlimited fulfillment.

Chasing all other things ends the same way, in disappointment. First it is ambition, then it is achievement and then it is Legacy: these worldly excuses for satisfaction have eluded most, but divine fulfillment can be had on every level.

The remedy is in letting the traumas go, seeking to offset an internal hurt by accomplishing an external goal. In the heart of your pursuits are you chasing the demons or have the demons given chase?

Psalms 18:36-40
You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way. I pursued my enemies and overtook them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed. I crushed them so that they could not rise; they fell beneath my feet. You armed me with strength for battle; you humbled my adversaries before me. You made my enemies turn their backs in flight, and I destroyed my foes.

#423 – Not by Happenstance

The old man is dead and there is no reason to revive him. Who you once were and the things you once did are figments of the past. Some are limited to seeing the old version of you and no more.

That is not your problem, I have caused you to become a new thing an entirely differing person. Walk in this novelty and enjoy your new origins. You do not owe your past or the people from the past, anything.

The old must make way for the new, because the new you and the old you are like oil and water, they will never mix. Each is an opposing master, you will love one and hate the other.

I AM placing a demand on who you are becoming, but be mindful of who you once were. Allow it to give you a heart full of empathy and grace, because it is not by happenstance. The old you is the caterpillar and the new you is the butterfly.

Matthew 6:24
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon [money, possessions, fame, status, or whatever is valued more than the Lord].

#422 – Offense Has a Price

What they said and what they did, hurt you, but the pain has lived past its purpose and has become a parasite. The ill will has expired and the perpetual infringement is all in your head.

The misunderstanding and the offense may have began small, but holding on to the hurtful thing has caused it to grow and that illusion has taken on a life of its own. It is your imagination working against you.

Anger is a part of living and it cannot be avoided, but it must be address quickly. When anger, disappointments or offenses fester the mind is polluted and the heart is weighed down.

Acknowledge the anger and the way you feel, but do not allow it to become a stumbling block or an obstacle to the relationships you hold dear. Operating in offense has a price that is too costly.

Philippians 4:8-9
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

#421 – By Faith not by Sight

I AM the GOD of redemption, causing the crooked places to become straight. Your marriage, your relationships nor your dreams are too hard for ME to restore, replenish and revive.

Despite what you can see, though a situation is broken and beyond human repair. I can yet, make a way out of no way. This is the hope you can live by, I operate in a higher, more powerful realm.

While your power can be measured and is limited by your realm. I AM not governed in the same way, because under MY authority each realm was created, I AM the author of both and I define their boundaries.

I can do what you cannot do, I move where you cannot move. I can change any heart, because I own them all. Wait upon ME and allow MY perfect will to be fulfilled. Trust ME by faith and not by sight.

Isaiah 43:16-19
Thus says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea, a path in the mighty waters, who brings forth chariot and horse, army and warrior; they lie down, they cannot rise, they are extinguished, quenched like a wick “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

#420 – Christ will Serve You

To become all things to all men is to surrender the ego by placing the needs, wants and desires of others, above your own. What you could say, by choice, is silenced and what you should charge, by choice, is written off.

Transmute the power of who you are into the concerns of those around you, become weakness in serving the weak and choose restriction for the sake of those restricted, to demonstrate the highest form of LOVE.

Sin is arrogant and sin is loud, sin is selfish and sin is self preserving. Sin is simple, it takes, but does not give. Choosing others, even when your confidence is not fully there is placing your faith over your fears.

This act of faith, simultaneously buries fear and plants a seed of hope. Here is MY commitment, serve the body, by becoming what MY people need and Christ will serve you, by becoming what you want.

1 Corinthians 9:19-23
For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them. To the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews. To those under the law I became as one under the law (though not being myself under the law) that I might win those under the law. To those outside the law I became as one outside the law (not being outside the law of God but under the law of Christ) that I might win those outside the law. To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.

#418 – Embrace the Fire

The assignment does not changed because it is difficult, it merely intensified. It may be hard, it may be a challenge and seems impossible, but I have prepared you for this moment and for this day.

The heat from the crucible will persist until the purification process has matured you. I will place you in the fire, then I will remove the dross. I will place you back into the fire, over and over, until your reflection looks like ME.

The fire is not your enemy, the enemy is in the dross. If you fear the fire, then you will remain intimate with the debris. The only way to remove the impurities in your life, is to embrace the fire. You must face this crucible, to win.

As the heat turns up in your life and in your relationships. View the furnace as an advantage, because it is purging you of iniquity. As the crucible does its work, endure it, accept the purification process.

Proverbs 27:20-22
Sheol (the place of the dead) and Abaddon (the underworld) are never satisfied; Nor are the eyes of man ever satisfied. The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold [to separate the impurities of the metal], And each is tested by the praise given to him [and his response to it, whether humble or proud]. Even though you pound a [hardened, arrogant] fool [who rejects wisdom] in a mortar with a pestle like grain, Yet his foolishness will not leave him.

#417 – Through this Transition

I have seen a foolish man lose it all. I have seen an angry man forfeit his honor, from one bad decision. What I have never seen is a righteous man forsaken. Whether in this lifetime or the next, you will be rewarded.

Stand in who you are and hold on to the image of the transformed you. In the fortress of your integrity is the vitality to endure, through this transition. Your good name is a shield and your pure heart an inoculation.

Nothing done in righteousness and with your most sincere heart is ever wasted. Your contributions are counted and being amassed in a spoil free, tamper free and expiration free realm. I AM personally protecting you.

The best of you is being preserved and the worst of you is being forgiven. You are close and the prize will be in hand, the worst is over, you have journeyed, too far, to abandon the post.

Psalms 37:25
I have been young and now I am old, Yet I have not seen the righteous (those in right standing with God) abandoned Or his descendants pleading for bread.

#416 – Why Men Fail

Anger is the easy thing, but peace is the hard thing. This is a certainty, because men choose anger over peace. If peace was easily accessible, anger and the weight it holds, could never prevail.

The right thing to do and the hard thing to do are twins in the same womb. One cannot be had without the other, because they share the same space. In choosing what is right, you have also, chosen what is hard.

Lay your ego aside and reach for the hard thing, because inside of the hard thing is also the right thing. This is why men fail, the right thing is the key, that unlocks the next level for your life.

Shift your attitude and see the hard thing not as optional, but as an obligation to those who seek MY face. The choosing does not become easier. What will you serve, the hard things, that are holy or the easy things, that appease the flesh?

James 1:19-20
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.

#413 – Accept the Struggle

The test before you is the assignment and this assignment is not negotiable, the opinions of others is a benefit and the multitude of counsel, but this is the point where outside influence has its boundary.

The confronting problem has a solution hardwired to who you are becoming, whether the circumstances are divine or dumbfounded, a choice was made. It is less about your faults and all about your responsibilities.

When difficulties arise, celebrate. When confusion seeks to overwhelm, smile. When trials sneak up behind you, say Hallelujah, because you have stepped into another dimension of your destiny.

The enemy is strategic in his warfare and you are now viewed as a valuable target. The attack confirms your value and the effectiveness of who you are. Accept the struggles, as the necessary process to be made Holy.

1 Peter 1:15-17
But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.” And remember that the heavenly Father to whom you pray has no favorites. He will judge or reward you according to what you do. So you must live in reverent fear of him during your time here as “temporary residents.” .

#412 – Have Dominion

I AM the all breasted, sufficient One. Life, death, eternity all begin and end where I see fit. The power to duplicate, have dominion and to rule over this earth is a specific, designated power generously reserved for Man alone. MY sons, MY joint heirs share in this:

MY Omnipresence. I hold time and eternity in the same hand. I see the finished perfected you, through the past and the present. What has occurred in the past cannot limited ME, what exists in this moment cannot stop ME and what eventually becomes is subject to ME.

MY Omniscience. Every original thought was created in ME and then share within as a phenomenon called inspiration. As the author of every science, the discoveries of men are merely divine revelations revealed at the point in time, that I have preselected.

MY Omnipotence. The power to give life and take life originate in ME. Nothing exists without MY permissions and powers running through it. I AM all powerful and nothing singularly or in unison can match the manifold powers found exclusively in ME.

1 Chronicles 29:11
Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O LORD, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things.

#411 – Actions Reflect Hearts

Once you have given all that you have, stand on your offering. In the future improvements can be made, but in the mean time, your best is your finest. Like the widow woman who gave her all, she gave from a place of totality.

I measure based on quality and not quantity, the amounts do not matter, I place value on the intents of your heart. Whatever you give to ME and others, that comes from a place of generosity is a contribution worth Heavenly and Earthly honor.

Whether men acknowledge or have the ability to appreciate, I see and know all. Your gift will make room for you, because it is a token of your heart proven by the consistency of your behavior. Actions reflect hearts.

Man does not have the final say. Remain steadfast to your commitments and exhaust every means to reconcile in truth. If repentance is refused, then free yourself from the ungrateful people around you and trust your aims.

Mark 12:41-44
Jesus sat down near the collection box in the Temple and watched as the crowds dropped in their money. Many rich people put in large amounts. Then a poor widow came and dropped in two small coins. Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has given more than all the others who are making contributions. For they gave a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she had to live on.”

#410 – Gratefulness is a Choice

When you begin to compare your life to others, you slowly are giving your authority away. When the standard of excellence is external, you will always chase it. However, when the measure is internal, you discover the only way can find it.

Gratefulness can only be scored from the inside and that which comes from the outside is only there to torment. In the game of comparison, there will always be someone that accomplished more, witnessed more and ascertained more.

Do not listen to those who brag, because the reality is far more harsh. To be jealous over another, not knowing the sacrifices made is a waste of virtue. Focus on your path, your plan and your purpose, because your greatest achievements are there.

In a fallen world no one escapes sorrows and no one has it all. Gratefulness is a choice, choose it wisely, often and quickly. Be grateful deliberately and be thankful in the moment by savoring each and every morsel.

2 Corinthians 10:12
For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

#409 – Unbridled Thoughts

Are you conspiring with the enemy? Using your mind against you is the best tool in the enemy’s arsenal, by taking a doubt or a half truth, he is then able to contradict MY Authority, in your heart.

The enemy attacks in many ways, health, finances and relationships, but have you considered the enemy found in your unbridled thoughts, the enemy, that attacks from within.

He enters as a small seed, a seemingly benign idea, that has been tolerated and allowed to replicate into self-loathing, negative inner talk and feelings of inadequacy.

Any thought, given the authority to reign inside your head and heart is dangerous, more dangerous than any outside threat. Be offensive towards this enemy, by taking each treasonous thought captive.

2 Corinthians 10:5-6
We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.

#408 – I AM not Done

I AM not done with you, despite what you see. I AM not done with you and my guarantee is an every breath bellowing inside your lungs. I AM not done with you, because the promises made to you, exist inside of ME.

You are not forgotten. You are not too late. You have not missed the mark. You have not failed in MY eyes. You are still, the apple of MY eye. You will live and you will not die. You are a conqueror and tomorrow is the battlefield.

Ignore the critics, because their words are from the pits of hell. Listen only to the voices that matter, the voice that you use to speak and the voice speaking to you now. Take captive any voice that is contrary.

When the enemy changes his tactics, it is because you have become a strategic target. The shift in your heart is now a threat to the kingdom of darkness and because of this new spiritual level, you are dealing with a revised devil.

Isaiah 30:18
But God’s not finished. He’s waiting around to be gracious to you. He’s gathering strength to show mercy to you. God takes the time to do everything right—everything. Those who wait around for him are the lucky ones.

#406 – The Indispensable

Struggles are a constant and challenging situations will always arise. A hard thing, in opposition, to your next season is to be expected. As the struggles, challenges and hard things become realities, know that MY grace covers it all and MY presence is guaranteed.

What you protect under duress, matters. The pressure is useful in revealing your true priorities. Who you defend in a crisis and what you protect in an attack, makes known what you love and who you value.

Fools value things, but wisemen value people. A fool defends his pride and ego, but a wiseman secures his covenants and his character. A wise man wastes no time in defending replaceable things, he is willing to die for the indispensable.

The enemy is not after things, but your very life. Since, God has placed a hedge of protection around you, the adversary must settle for the next best thing, your peace. The enemy is targeting your peace, Do not hand it to him.

Romans 8:5-6
Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.

#404 – Your Mind is Divine

What is acceptable for others, can in fact, be a challenge for you. There is a safety in numbers, that can be dangerous for a mind, not fully made up. The opinion of friends and family is a comfort, until it controls you.

A complete conviction in your identity is a liberating trait. A whole minded individual can make the right decisions, even when it is not popular. The tribe and the clan are important to honor and respect, but your mind is divine.

The space between your ears is sacred, a Holy of Holy places, keep it safe and clear at all times. Clean it up after the messy things of life rush in. Leave no residues behind, whatever remains will fester.

This is your heart and the soul of who you are. The chaos that attacks all men is defeated on this battlefield. The soul is the mediator between your flesh man and your spirit man, the real you. The command of your true identity is conquered here.

1 Corinthians 10:23
All things are legitimate (permissible and we are free to do anything we please), but not all things are helpful (expedient, profitable, and wholesome). All things are legitimate, but not all things are constructive (to character) and edifying (to spiritual life).

#403 – Timing Must be in Sync

You have not missed ME, you missed MY timing, there is a distinction. A menacing spirit in whispering your ear, that you are a failure, flawed and defective. None of this is true. What you heard, from ME, was right, but the timing must be in sync.

A dream has a due date like a child being born, it is not easy to predict. The right time depends on the nature of the dream, too soon or too late can harm the baby. A dream, as a baby, fully matures in its own time.

The desired relationship, opportunity or position was right, but the timing was wrong and this is the reason it failed. The enemy’s job is to snuff out that dream, you must remain vigilant despite what may seem as a failure.

Hear me now, and write this on the tablet of your heart. All dreams come from on high and are sent directly from ME and I have given every soul a dream to fulfill, the demonic plan is to replace the dream, with a nightmare.

Habakkuk 2:3
For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.

#402 – Forbearance and Long Suffering

When transparency meets vulnerability healing is the result. The barrier to purpose is pride. Pride in admitting the truth to yourself, pride in admitting the truth to others and pride in seeking divine help.

Be patient with yourself, when you lose your temper or act from the flesh as opposed to the spirit. Anxiety, offense and anger are signs of unhealed traumas. These feelings of frustration indicate more work needs to be done.

The difficult task is to distinguish the difference between a bad situation, a bad behavior and a bad person. Being in a bad place and making a bad decision even though it contradicts your purpose, does not negate that purpose.

Who you are eternally is secure and what you have erroneously done is temporary. The process of Spirtual maturity includes forbearance and long suffering, forgiveness is equally good for the giving and for the receiving, have some for yourself.

Romans 8:30
And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.

#401 – Refusing to be Limited

A reputation can be lived down, no matter how accurately it reflects your former life. A momentary lapse is not the end, but simply a failed test, take the time to understand it, acknowledge it and do better.

Where you are now is not a surprise, nor a secret for ME. Jonah was still obligated whether in MY presence, on the ship or inside the belly of the fish. It can be either obedience or the lack there of, that accomplishes MY will.

Let your perspectives flow in and out like the tides, refusing to be limited by stale mindsets. All that is new, will eventually be seen as dated and day is coming when all the previous versions of you will expire, if you say so.

What is old to some can be viewed as seasoned to another, what is seen as novice, from one angle, can be seen as innovative from another. An entry level job can be looked upon as trivial or considered as an opportunity filled, paid internship.

Jonah 1:14-16
So the men cried to the Lord, “Lord, please don’t let us die because of this man’s life; please don’t think we are guilty of killing an innocent person. Lord, you have caused all this to happen; you wanted it this way.” So they picked up Jonah and threw him into the sea, and the sea became calm. Then they began to fear the Lord very much; they offered a sacrifice to the Lord and made promises to him.

#398 – A Day is Coming

A day is coming, by faith. When your bloodline will hold no more traces of infections, diseases or curses. The foreign matter affecting your family has been a lie sold by the enemy and bought into, by a previous generation.

Like the enemy, The King of Kings and the Lord of Lords has also been inside the most intimate of places, to restore. Where dominion was once given away, you will reclaim and submit to ME. The blood is what Christ especially came to redeem.

By these actions of faith. What fear, plus bad decisions has stolen, love plus good decisions has restored. Your bloodline will be boldly restored, because you have boldly placed a demand on the one that has the power to restore, all things.

A day is coming, that is both predetermined and predestined by faith. When the eternal faith and natural faith collide, generations are blessed. You have won more than a battle of blood, you have broken a generational curse.

Matthew 9:20-22
Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.

#397 – Fill Your Mouth

David danced before ME, until he lost himself, in MY presence. This can be for you, as well, choose MY presence over the constant worries, that surround you. See the painful circumstances as the provocateurs for praise.

Invite ME into your midst, through worship and you will see a shift. A resetting of your environment and a change in the atmosphere. Heaven and earth must obey me and introducing MY presence cancels out darkness.

When you are at wits end, extend your hands towards Heaven. When you come to the end of your abilities and surrender is the only option. This is submission by making ME Lord over another aspect of your heart.

Fill your mouth with praise and your heart with gladness. These are the weapons of spiritual warfare. The enemy is not moved by titles, possessions or the accolades of man. The enemy is defeated by spiritual strength and spiritual authority alone.

Psalm 30:10-12
Hear me, LORD, and have mercy on me. Help me, O LORD.” You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy, that I might sing praises to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever!

#395 – For such a Time as This

You are a mighty man of God despite the disrespect, you are a mighty man of God despite the feelings of inadequacy that overwhelm and you are a mighty man of God despite any shortcomings you my have, for such a time as this.

Your destiny is sealed. Your purposes are secure. Your place is set secretly and strategically. What I have designed for you is for you. Your future is sealed by MY very Word. It is backed by the Heavens, the Earth and everything that exists.

You will live through this and you will produce life. You were born to be a life giver, an incubator of MY Spirit and where MY breath resides, there is Life guaranteed. I have blown you into predicaments like the wind.

You are there to absorb chaos and exude life. The darkness you see around you is not a curse, but an assignment, because you are the light. The enormous weight of what seem to be against you is in fact for you, to strengthen you. I have sent you, therefore I trust you.

Ester 4:14
For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows if perhaps you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

#394 – I AM better than Gold

It is out of your unworthiness that your worth is made known. It is through the crucible of worthlessness, that I can rush in to restore. What do not have and what you have not done are the gaps orchestrated by purpose.

Seek ME in the deficits and I will indwell them. Let the weak say I am strong and allow the poor to declare a richness. Let the low in status find a renewal in ME. I AM Grace and I abound in darkness.

At the end of the conditional values assigned by this world is where your true worth and values begin. Until you embrace the nothingness of this world, your cannot lay siege to the unfathomed treasures of MY presence.

I AM better than gold, I AM more precious than rubies and I AM one hundred fold greater, than any pleasure in this world. Let the insecurities flow, that they may be exposed to the light.

Challenge the status quo, challenge what the world has convinced you to believe and challenge the traumas that have held you hostage. In the marvelous light of MY Truth your healing will be made evident.

Psalms 18:28-30
You, LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. With your help I can advance against a troop ; with my God I can scale a wall. As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.

#392 – Hold onto the Wind

There is a shift in the spirit realms, a new dispensation of power and dominion. A move that has not been trusted, even to the elect to foreknow. In this season, many are asking the question, GOD, what do I hold onto? The answer is this, hold onto the WIND.

The wind is a representation of MY unseen power. You cannot see it, but you know it is there. You cannot touch it, but you can feel it. You cannot hold it, but you can see its effects. You cannot control it, but you can harness it.

To those who live in Spirit and in Truth. It is time for you to know ME, feel ME, be affected by ME and harness MY Power. I AM exposing the world to MY Almighty Winds, the winds of both grace and rebuke.

I can blow into you world to destroy or to construct, to build or to tear down. Many have exalted themselves against MY throne and I have brought them to their knees. Governments, economies and social structures will ALL fall, because they defy the Almighty God.

Amos 4:13
For behold, He who forms mountains and creates the wind And declares to man what are His thoughts, He who makes dawn into darkness And treads on the high places of the earth, The LORD God of hosts is His name.

John 3:8
“The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Exodus 10:13-14
So Moses stretched out his staff over the land of Egypt, and the LORD directed an east wind on the land all that day and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts. The locusts came up over all the land of Egypt and settled in all the territory of Egypt; they were very numerous. There had never been so many locusts, nor would there be so many again.

Exodus 10:19
So the LORD shifted the wind to a very strong west wind which took up the locusts and drove them into the Red Sea; not one locust was left in all the territory of Egypt.

#391 – Much in and Much out

MY place of blessing has an immense cost. The large cost is commensurate to the large blessing, a blessing is an asset and has a value unto itself. There will be competition for anything of value and for any asset.

The cost may be money, it may be time, it may be reputation, it may be pain or the cost may be blood. The blessings are yours and are set before you, pressed down, shaken together and running over. Are you willing to pay the cost?

Will you march around Jericho seven times, like Joshua? Will you go into the Lion’s Den, like Daniel? Will you dip your body 7 times in the river Jordan, like Naaman? Can you be beaten with rods, shipwrecked and take 39 lashes, like Paul?

To walk in an eternal blessing will require a natural cost. To be widely known for your faith, will require a great act of your faith. To whom I have given and trusted with much, I also hold in high regard and require much. I demand much, much in and much out.

2 Kings 5:14-15
So Naaman went down to the Jordan River and dipped himself seven times, as the man of God had instructed him. And his skin became as healthy as the skin of a young child, and he was healed! Then Naaman and his entire party went back to find the man of God. They stood before him, and Naaman said, “Now I know that there is no God in all the world except in Israel. So please accept a gift from your servant.”

#390 – A Ridiculous Exorbitant Outpouring

If you are still breathing, you have MY favor. If you have breath in your body, MY promises, yet hold true. The host of heaven is a prayer away. What I invest in, always produces a dividend and MY word cannot return to ME void.

Despite the shame, that the enemy uses to discredit and disarm, you cannot outrun MY grace or hide from MY favor. What you are becoming is a flawless masterpiece made by MY hand. All the people and each circumstance is working for your good, allow ME to shape you.

What you do not understand and what I allow is the perfection, that shapes you. The perfection is not for you, but for a dying world. You are a display of MY Glory, a ridiculous exorbitant outpouring of MY Majesty.

I want to show, through you, what the blessings of the Lord, really looks like. Then the world’s masquerade of peace and strength, will appear as filthy rags, in comparison to MY true peace and true strength.

Isaiah 55:10-12
The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.

#386 – Until you Quit

What you feel is an attack is actually a series of events stayed by My hand. This is not a coincidence it is ME, creating an earthquake around you. I AM purposely shaking up all that you know and trust.

This will be a norm until you quit, Jonah. You cannot run, swim, lie or cry your way out of this. I formed you, I called you and I shaped you for a particular moment. This is about filling and fulfilling the mandate on your life.

The filling is to answer MY calling with exuberance and move with a sense of urgency. The fulfilling is to completely extinguish all that I have place in you, to leave this world empty and transformed.

The work you have done, the places you have been and the relationships you hold are all tools, a means to an end, MY divine ends. From today forward your focus must be ME and ME alone. Your passions and your purpose must become singular.

Jonah 2:6-10
To the roots of the mountains I descended;
the earth beneath me barred me in forever! But You raised my life from the pit, O LORD my God! As my life was fading away, I remembered the LORD. My prayer went up to You, to Your holy temple. Those who cling to worthless idols forsake His loving devotion. But I, with the voice of thanksgiving, will sacrifice to You. I will fulfill what I have vowed. Salvation is from the LORD!” And the LORD commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.

#384 – A Yielded Vessel

The raising of your hands to Heaven is a normal and appropriate response to the sensing of my PRESENCE. Hands raised to the heavens is a sign and an acknowledgment of the coming pouring out of MY Spirit.

It is also, a sign of surrender, it signifies that you have exhausted all your human resources and are now in complete submission. A yielded vessel is a powerful one. When you hand the reigns of your life to ME, the best of ME and the best in you collide.

Whether it be the ultimate praise or submission to the ultimate God, you will benefit. This is the seed of your breakthrough, at the end of what is your best, welcomes MY best. In your utmost weakness, you will experience MY utmost strength.

Raise your hands and allow ME to fix it, to be the solution. While, your solutions are temporary, MY solutions are eternal. Relieve yourself now, hand your worries to ME, that I may be GOD in your secret places and the unknown regions of your heart.

Lamentations 3:40-41
Let us examine our lifestyles, putting them to the test, and turn back to the LORD. Let us lift up our hearts and our hands to God in heaven.

#381 – Your Honor is Coming

There is a coach that was acknowledged with the highest honor, his name was enshrined among the best of the best. The honor had a special meaning. The league bestowed upon the coach a recognition, delayed by his specific team and several years after many of his players experienced the same honor.

The coach was denied by his inner circle, but was accepted by the circle of circles. He was denied by a subsystem, but accepted system wide. He was denied by his city, but was accepted by the world. He was denied by those closest to him, but accepted by those observing from afar.

Despite the defeat, the denial, the disrespect and the delay the coach finally received his high honor. Your high honor is coming, delayed but is coming. You have been disregarded, but your high honor is coming. You were overlooked, with defeat in your eyes, but your honor is coming.

I am reminded of King Solomon, all of his wisdom, knowledge, wealth, notoriety and the very throne he succeeded was because of King David. King Soloman was King David’s son and his high honor, King Soloman walked in the full favor of God, because of King David.

1 Kings 3:6
Solomon replied, “You have shown much loving devotion to Your servant, my father David, because he walked before You in faithfulness, righteousness, and uprightness of heart. And You have maintained this loving devotion by giving him a son to sit on his throne this very day.

#378 – A Outpouring is Coming

An outpouring of MY spirit is coming. It is going to wash away the crimson stain and drown the chaos, the confusion that has become a normal. The evil you see in temporary. The pain you see has an expiration date. The fear will be addressed.

Do not worry, the hand that holds the Heavens and the earth in place has not wavered. The hurt may seem unquenchable, but MY Glory is steadfast and freedom is about to be released from MY mouth.

I have called you, I have equipped you and I have carved out a place for you. You have been counted and not forgotten, you are seen and what you do is seen, the sacrifices, the forgiveness and the peacemaking.

The investments of love, hope and kindness, that have been dismissed by this world have been stored in the Heavenly realm with me. I AM personally attending to your accounts and you will see a mighty return and a massive harvest. You must only trust.

2 Kings 4:3-7
And Elisha said, “Borrow as many empty jars as you can from your friends and neighbors. Then go into your house with your sons and shut the door behind you. Pour olive oil from your flask into the jars, setting each one aside when it is filled.” So she did as she was told. Her sons kept bringing jars to her, and she filled one after another. Soon every container was full to the brim! “Bring me another jar,” she said to one of her sons. “There aren’t any more!” he told her. And then the olive oil stopped flowing. When she told the man of God what had happened, he said to her, “Now sell the olive oil and pay your debts, and you and your sons can live on what is left over.”

#375 – A Peacemaking Spirit

When you have come to a point, where there is no right or wrong, nor good or evil and the only thing you are concerned with is MY presence, this is when you can clearly hear MY instructions. There is a wind coming, blowing into the threshing floor to separate the chaff from the wheat.

The winds are blowing for you, if your heart be wheat, but if your heart be chaff, this Mighty Wind, My Mighty Wind is blowing against you. This is a foreboding and a warning for those who claim MY Name, but whose hearts are far from ME.

This is your warning, to make your paths straight, to be who I have called, not this world’s calling, but who I have called you to be. I have placed a Peacemaking Spirit in you, I am commanding you to make peace. This is not an option, an opinion or a debatable decision.

Your ability to obey in this moment will cause a shift in the trajectory of the spread of darkness. I have made you for such a time as this. This is your purpose, this is your great call and this is why you have been given an arsenal of gifts.

James 3:18
And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.

2 Cor. 20:20
Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.

#370 – MY hand is stayed against Thee

Nothing is greater than, The Great I AM. MY hand is stayed against thee. What you need, I will and already have provided. This and any other sickness is not unto death. I hold the key to sickness and death.

Death in this life is not to be feared. Absence from this world is presence with ME, in the next. Be wise as serpents, yet harmless as doves. Watch what I AM doing. You have been distanced from the many, to become more intimate with the few.

Asking ME why is the wrong question, Ask ME: the How, the Where, the What and the When. How will this advance the Kingdom, Where can I help and intercede, What is MY new assignment Father, When should we pray and When should we fight.

The power of Life and Death is in MY hands. Death is not a challenge for ME, death is MY minion. Death is MY mercenary and a slave to MY every command. Release the worries, fear the ONE, that holds death in its place.

2 Chronicles 7:13-15
At times I might shut up the heavens so that no rain falls, or command grasshoppers to devour your crops, or send plagues among you. Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.

#369 – Born for this Moment

Today is the first day of a new chapter. What was, has expired and the new is all that remains. Only the new version of you remains. You were born for this moment and the time has come for you to reap the fruit of your labor, for you to taste and see, in your promised land.

The road has been difficult and arduous, but you made it. You are winning, because you have refused defeat and will continue to win, if you do not quit. You are a gladiator in your craft and well suited for the task at hand.

As you put on the armor of mastery, the sword of your gift and guard the loins of your call, nothing can stop you, because you are now operating in destiny. You are living in the predestined present, promised by ME, for you. This future belongs to you.

Heaven has proclaimed and it will be so. The intercessory prayers of the righteous are with you and are ever present to guide you. The book has been written and in Christ you have been established. This moment has been ordained for you.

Psalm 139:15-16
My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in secret, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all my days were written in Your book and ordained for me before one of them came to be.

#358 – It is your time, too!

Become comfortable, with what you do not know. As others around you begin to express their gifts and callings, resist the urge to become anxious or jealous. It is your time, too.

When you see ME use your brother or sister in a mighty way, let it be an inspiration and not an intimidation, about what is soon coming for you.

The flow of my spirit is over the body, as the oil flows from Aaron’s head, down his cheeks, down his beard and the rest of his body. The oil, MY anointing is flowing towards you.

The oil is not only costly, but powerfully fragrant. Aaron’s sons were sprinkled with the anointing, BUT Aaron was emerged in it.

The oil was not sprinkled, but wasted over him. The entire pouring out and the complete portion of Gods spirit. It is to signify a full trust, a full empowerment and the entirety of God’s power and purpose. You have not received some of ME, but all of ME.

Psalms 133:1-3
Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes! It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion! For there the LORD has commanded the blessing, life forevermore.

#348 – Giants in your Generation

Until you slay your giant, you cannot be king. The king of the hopes, dreams and desires, I have embedded in your heart. The opposition facing your purpose, your calling and your gifts are your giants. Until you defeat the giant of pride, the giant of lust and the giant of greed your reign is on hold and will be delayed.

What I have placed in your hand is specifically designed to address the giants in your generation. Use your strength and energy, to challenge the status quo of both Christ followers and the culture. Find a balance between conforming to this world and becoming too heavenly minded.

The current spirit of religion has placed results over relationships, many have and many more will fall by the wayside, because you the bearers of MY word and MY truth are afraid to face the giants head on. Remember who has empowered you, the weapons of your warfare are not carnal.

It is sacrifice, that will be your secret weapon against the evil one. Live a life of holy offerings to ME, walking up right and beyond reproach. This reputation of righteousness will go before you and roar like a pride of lions, against the adversary.

2 Corinthians 10:3-6
We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.

#341 – I AM Fortifying

Your dream is not on hold, you are just in a specific season of getting more context. Pay close attention to everything you are about to see and hear. I AM fortifying and enriching the dream. The scope is being broadened and the focus made more precise.

I AM expanding your territory and revealing it now, under duress, so that none can take credit for the revelations, including the innovations of your own mind. You have known in part and prophesied in part.

Now I am shifting things and revealing more of the predestined purposes for your life. You may feel manic, at times and that you have little, to no control. This is by design and needed for this season of growth. It is all about growing and growth.

You have held the fullness of who I AM at bay. I AM bigger and much larger than you have fathomed. Much you are aspiring to do, in your own power, requires the super natural. It is time that you relinquish control and untie MY hands. I AM going to bless you exceedingly and abundantly beyond anything you can ask or think.

1 Corinthians 13:9-12
Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless. When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.

#337 – Look for MY Peace

Whenever and wherever love is opposed, any place in which love is abhorred, this is the place where you will find ME. MY presence will rest in places like these, because where sin abounds much, MY grace abounds much.

In the heart of the hopeless spaces you will find rest. MY spirit will yield peace like the eye of a storm. At the highest point of chaos, I have a counterpoint of calm. Look for MY peace in the midst of your storm. It will always be there.

The wind and waves are mere distractions to the assignment at hand and the circumstances are falsehoods in the face of The Almighty God. Your Faith is the eyesight used to see beyond this realm, into the realm of what is possible.

Each pain, I see. Every hurt, I see and each unjust thing, I know. MY grace is sufficient. MY will shall prevail and you will be renewed. That was not, nor shall this be your end, you will live & not die.

2 Corinthians 12:9
My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.

#335 – God’s Ordained Partnerships

Do not be overwhelmed. Slow down, you are moving at a fanatical pace, this is not a sustainable course. When men see the brilliance and the light in your spirit, they are drawn like a moth to a flame. This confirms what God planted in you long ago.

The challenge will be discernment, distinguishing divine appointments from those drawn to the anointing. These are very good people and mean well, but efforts towards those opportunities are energy taking and energy depleting.

Test them in this way. God’s ordained partnerships will give you life and more clarity of purpose. Allow Him to order your steps and exercise your right to say, NO. Plan for immutable time with your family and loved ones.

Give yourself permission to breathe, to be unsure, to have fun, to be spontaneous and most importantly take time out for just you and the Father. God is using you, because you have the best heart and not necessarily the best plan. Protect that heart and God will protect the plan.

Psalms 37:23-24
The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the LORD holds them by the hand.

#327 – The Desert is Finished

The manna is over. What the generations before you could not receive is now your rightful inheritance. The miracles of deliverance and sustenance in the desert, were to build you up for this moment. You will receive a city, that you did not build and harvest you did not sow.

Wealth, wisdom and warriors to help are coming from the North, the South, the West and the East. I am coming from the east, a wind of reclamation, to bestow what is and has always been yours.

This is more than a new covenant with you, it is also MY command. All that was made, must relent, acknowledge and obey. The giants before you, do not matter, only your relationship with the giant destroyer.

The manna was milk, designed to get you here, the Promised Land. The next level of promise, requires nourishment that only the promised land can supply. What was done in the desert is finished and is no more. Canaan is now your home.

Exodus 6:33-35
Moses said to Aaron, “Get a jar and fill it with two quarts of manna. Then put it in a sacred place before the LORD to preserve it for all future generations. Aaron did just as the LORD had commanded Moses. He eventually placed it in the Ark of the Covenant—in front of the stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant. So the people of Israel ate manna for forty years until they arrived at the land where they would settle. They ate manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan.

#326 – Every part of you is Holy

I know everything about you and nothing can surprise ME. I know all that you think and all that you will say. MY hand is on you and the knowledge you possess is MY divine gift. This is your light.

I AM everywhere and through ME everything was made. If you plunge to the bottom of the ocean or explore the most distant celestial star, I AM there holding you, holding the oceans and holding the galaxies in place.

I made you remarkably, both fearfully and wonderfully, I have made you. A marvelous masterpiece of flesh on bone. You are MY sacred workmanship made in MY secret place, MY anointed work.

I formed you from the inside out, every part of you is Holy. Your Mother’s womb was MY canvas and the world is MY showcase. Every part of you I have loved, even in the darkness of sin, as in the light.

Psalms 139:12
Even the darkness is not dark to You, but the night shines like the day, for darkness is as light to You.
