#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

#45 – I Love You

I am more than enough. The competition for your heart is great. Fortune, fame, family, fitness, fantasy and favor are all there, but where is your faith? Where have you made room for me? I AM desperate for you and yearn for you.

MY sacrifice is clear and what I have done to redeem and to restore has been great. The stripes for your healing, the mockery for your honor, the shame for your courage and the nails for your freedom. I did ALL this for you.

MY blood spilled for your sins, MY body desecrated for your well being. I have paid all costs, fees and interests to have you, to be restored, to have communion. It is time for ME to received MY due rewards, I want what is MINE and that is You!

I have made it MY will to love you, to be concerned with every aspect of you. To make countless ways for redemption, reconciliation and the reclaiming of your heart for ME. I LOVE you externally, perpetually and entirely.

1 John 4:16-19
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.

#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.

#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.

#12 – You are MY Breath

Your pain is real and you are justified in your hurt, but this is not an end, it is a beginning. I come to redeem you from the hurt and to redeem what the cankerworm, the caterpillar and the palmer worm have destroyed.

I AM the creator, what I create in you will exist and it will flourish. MY ‘Let There Be’ never stops, everything I touch produces life and MY hand is on you. The power to restore is on you, but also produced inside of you.

You are being renewed, to become an indelible source of rejuvenation. I exist to restore the broken pieces. Give ME the broken pieces, that the world rejects. With ME, a beautiful mosaic masterpiece is being formed.

You are MY handy work. You are the masterpiece. You are the ornate sculpture formed by MY very hands. Not only are you MINE, I have vested MY breath of life inside you, to breathe life into all that I send you. You are MY breath.

Act 17:24-25
“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.

#2 – Peace, more Peace and Everlasting Peace

There is no reason to doubt ME. All that I have promised has been fulfilled. Am I not consistent? Has not my every WORD come to pass? Why are you questioning ME? Do you trust ME? Have I ever failed?

Heaven and Earth will pass away, before I can lie. I am bound by MY word and every tribute concerning you. There is a rhythm to your breath, to your heart beat and to the seasons. This proves your significance, I have you in MY rhythm.

All others may have failed where you will be victorious. It does not matter what the experts have to say on the matter. You will be triumphant, because MY hand is on you. Whatever you touch will be blessed.

Why are you still questioning, what I have for you? I am your Peace, Surrender to ME Now! Warring against your own destiny is futile. I have come to give you rest: Peace, more Peace and everlasting Peace.

Psalm 91:7
A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.
