#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.

#389 – A Refreshing

The spirit of resentment, disappointment, disillusionment, fear and trauma are rebuked. Your empathy needs a refreshing, to be strategic and highly effective for the Kingdom.
Resentment is a state of disappointment.

Disappointment is the difference between an expectation and the actual. Over time disappointment, after disappointment breeds disillusionment. This is where the worst is expected and presumed.

Trauma can be physical, mental or spiritual, simultaneously. Requiring the healing to be sought and sent on each level. The result of trauma is pain, the result of pain is fear.

As you speak life, it must be demonstrative in your tone and the manner in which you speak. It must be genuine, with hearts in mind. You must be consistent in seeking to understand and hearing ME, on their behalf. You are holding a life in your hand, do not rush it. It will take, the time it takes.

Proverbs 12:18
There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

#388 – You are Fully Equipped

You are the Joseph of your family. You are the trailblazer and your wisdom will break strongholds and generational curses on your bloodline. Days may become cloudy and fear will try to attach to your heart.

Deny fear any access, but acknowledge that you are afraid. A healthy dose will keep you on your toes. The path you are on will not make sense to many, because it is yours and given to you, by ME. Advise will become a luxury.

You will have to spend some tearful nights in my presence and you will need to bring your grievances directly to the throne. I am building something in you, that has never been seen. You are building an Ark. I will be your primary counselor, so time in MY presence will be critical.

Even when you feel overwhelmed, you are learning and building new mental and spiritual muscles. You have been a great steward of your finances and with your family. This season is a season of trust. Trust in your abilities, trust in your gift, trust in your skill and trust in your talents. You are fully equipped.

Psalms 92:2-4
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

#387 – Through each Infirmity

In the face of trouble. Raise your praise. When you acknowledge MY glory, you are acknowledging MY divinity. It is MY anointing, the conferring of MY divinity, that will destroy the yoke.

The sicknesses, cuts and scrapes of the past have been a means to build strength, through each infirmity. Each requires the immune system to set up antibodies or infection will result.

The infection can be treated with quick and accurate interventions. As it is in the flesh, so it is in the spirit, an untreated wound, can become an infection. Be quick in forgiveness and accurate in repentance.

Take time to acknowledge the divine. The events happening around you are governed and subject to the Lord of Hosts. Nothing is accidentally and nothing is beyond MY ability to use for MY Glory.

Galatians 5:1
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

#385 – I Desire Intimacy

You speak of ME and you declare MY name, but you have kept the Holy of Holies, in your heart, from ME. There is more to experience in relationship with ME. There are many more Plateaus.

You presume, that I do not know you fully, that I will be surprise about your flaws. You are committed to ME and I know you love me, but I AM waiting to consummate our relationship.

I want you to be intimate with ME, naked before ME, not for my sake, but to heal your heart. You have been wounded and rejected by your previous lovers, but they did not love you, they loved themselves.

I AM LOVE, I AM healing, I AM restoration and I have chosen you as MY bride. I desire intimacy with you on all levels. I AM the God of your past, present and future, nothing is hidden.

Isaiah 39:1-4
O Lord, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.

#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.

#380 – I AM the Answer to them ALL

I am forcing somethings to come to a close. Wrongs will be made right and the upper will soon serve the lower. Remember what I have told you and say only that. The winds and the waves will blow and many will fall under the pressures of opinions, offenses and oppressions, but you will not fall. Hold onto MY hand.

Watch for Fear it has many forms: ego, short sidedness, anger, depression acting out, shame, disrespect, covetousness, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, addictions, lasciviousness, pride, haughtiness, arrogance, prejudice, bigotry, and condemnation. Love is the answer to them ALL. I AM the answer to them all.

Force your will over your emotional state. Choose to be happy, joyous, forgiving, loving and kind. Do not reciprocate evil for evil, this is easy. Use your energy and your gift to spread light to a condemning world. I have placed MY light in you, to do more than harness it. I intend for you to share it, with those in need and those that are desperate.

Where and Who do I serve Lord? Beginning serving those who have offended you, give to those who you most dislike, your time and energy. See those that have despitefully used you, as assignments. In the shifting of those hearts you will find ME and you will find a greater sense of your purpose. The fulfillment you seek, will found in the eyes of those that hate you.

Matthew 5:43-45
You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy. ‘ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who despitefully use you and persecute you, So that you yourselves may be the children of your Father Who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

#379 – Time to Release

In a vision, I saw hands surrounding a woman’s neck and the hands seemed to be stopping her from breathing, attempting to take the life out of her.
These hands were wrapped strongly and had a vicious hold.

The Woman:
The woman, represents humanity and every person living around the world. The choking is to prevent the voice, the story and the gifts from being shared with the hurting.

The Breath:
In the breath is healing, in the breath is life. In the breath is spirit. The healing will be, in the very areas one has overcome, survived and defeated, for the benefit of many.

The Assignment:
You are called not condemned, to the darkness, the depression, the feelings of inadequacy and the sense of not being worthy, that have plagued the recesses of your mind.

The Redemption:
You were not lost or forgotten, you were appointed to an incredible mission and assigned to sharing the secrets of your escape. You were not disregarded, you were designated for purpose. The world’s rejection was MY selection.

The Restoration:
The first chapter was from the world, but the final chapter must be yours. What will you do with the hurts and the pains? If you hold them, they will consume you. If you release them they will consume, the enemy.

The Conclusion:
The hands in the vision around the woman’s neck, were not an adversary or an oppressor. The hands, that were strangling her and the hands strangling you are your own. You have been justified, it is time to release the hold.

Romans 8:29-30
For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.

#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.”

#377 – MY systems are Perfect

Strive to be holy, for in your acts and endeavors of holiness is the strength and the integrity that defies man’s pursuits and man’s wisdom. Holiness is MY domain, where the foolish are separated from the wise. Where joint and marrow are separated and where soul and spirit is distinguished.

In MY Holiness you were designed and perfected. Sin has distorted man’s vision of himself, but there is not a force made or spirit that exists powerful enough to change MY Mind or MY Plans.

Be mindful of efforts to recreate what I have created and to rename what I have named. What I make is perfect and what I called a thing to be, it will be. The efforts to designate an established thing, as another is a man made flaw.

MY systems are perfect and need no adjustments. Man’s role is not to fix what is made, but to find a way to flow in MY perfection. Your thinking on the matter is limited, MY thinking is bigger and has no limitations.

Colossians 1:12-14
Giving thanksd to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

#376 – The Choice of Who

There are two versions of who you are, one you were born from and the other you were born to. One is has been worn, abused and mistreated by life and is reflective of the hurts, pains and shame. This version is temporary and mistakenly known, as your character and has been established as your reputation.

The other is based on who you are in Christ and who you were established to be from the beginning. This version is powerfully anointed, having a humble and a gentle spirit. This is the ‘real you’ and the way you are seen in the spiritual realms. This version is eternal and shapes environments for the Kingdom of God.

One version is generated and the other version is genuine. Like the wheat and the tare, I have allowed both to grow in the same womb, independently. Now, the womb of purpose has become too small for both, the generated you and the genuine you. It is time to make a choice on the version you will be. Soon, one version will choke out the other, because each has grown to it limits in the womb.

The choice of who prevails is yours, but know to embrace one will eliminate the other. MY intentions in you have never wavered and what I establish never fails. What I established in your heart is deliberate and in MY divine timings and specific purposes. Like Ester, for such a time as this. Like Joseph, what was meant for evil has been made good. Like Gideon, you are mighty warrior and like David, you are a man after MY very own heart.

Matthew 13:24-30
Here is another story Jesus told: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a farmer who planted good seed in his field. But that night as the workers slept, his enemy came and planted weeds among the wheat, then slipped away. When the crop began to grow and produce grain, the weeds also grew. “The farmer’s workers went to him and said, ‘Sir, the field where you planted that good seed is full of weeds! Where did they come from? An enemy has done this!’ the farmer exclaimed. “‘Should we pull out the weeds?’ they asked. “‘No,’ he replied, ‘you’ll uproot the wheat if you do. Let both grow together until the harvest. Then I will tell the harvesters to sort out the weeds, tie them into bundles, and burn them, and to put the wheat in the barn.’”

#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.

#374 – A Whole New Reputation

In a dream, I saw a man having a discourse with God. God told the man he was not spending precious time in his word, the man responded, Lord I AM in your word daily. The Lord answered, you are in MY word, but no longer enjoy it, therefore MY word is not in you.

The relationship has become stagnant, like a slow moving body of water, a Dead Sea. Much is in you, much has been deposited and much is available, but it has no place to be emptied into. Where is your understudy?

Who will carry on MY work in you, beyond you and throughout time. MY many Mantles over your life are great and it will require several generations to carry out. I have entrusted you with a new birthright and a new lineage.

This birthright has not existed before and the new lineage was forsaken by a previous generation. I AM raising you up to establish a new standard for men and their accountability to ME, their all sufficient God.

New health, new integrity, new character, a whole new reputation in the earth. Men that lead and lend, a system of sustainability, that reflects MY original interests in Eden. I made you to bear MY life and light. When men see you, they will see GOD.

I have called you to do more than disciple, I AM calling you to duplicate. To create more than followers, but to create creators. A new tribe of Judah, that will only worship and serve the true, living GOD.

Isaiah 43:18-19
“Do not call to mind the former things; pay no attention to the things of old. Behold, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming. Do you not see it? Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness and streams in the desert.

#373 – Embrace the Growth

When the enemy comes in like a flood, he is limited to the permissions I have granted. He can neither add nor subtract from the powers, I have allowed. He is merely a pawn and is still subject to MY will.

Focus less on what you are losing, but on what is being built. Look beyond what is done and toward what I AM doing. The hard times build muscles, strength and tenacity that can only be formed this way.

Avoiding the struggle is to avoid the growth it produces. Avoiding the sufferings is to avoid the humility. Where you are stretched, you will have growth and where you are tested, you will yield fortitude.

Embrace the strengthening. Embrace the straightening. Embrace the growth. Embrace the renewal. Embrace a different way to view things. See this moment in a new light and in its true advantageous way.

Isaiah 59:19
So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

#372 – Let it Rip

You are ready, now. No more seasoning or garnishments. What I have place in you is ready to be served. You have been studious and diligent in perfecting your craft.

The spirit of not enough is looking to attach itself to your faith. This must not happen. What is bubbling inside you is MY Spirit and it is perfect. I need you to pour it out, Now! You have MY anointing and MY permission.

Let it Rip. Let it flow. Let it manifest fully. Let it run like a river. Let it flood everything and everyone you touch.

This is for every painful memory, every wound, every embarrassment, every hurt feeling, every time you were disrespected, every moment of anxiety and every period of depression.

In your belly is the gift of encouragement, in your mouth are the words of affirmation and in your arms are hope, bestowing holy hugs on the hurting.

John 7:37-38
“If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. The one believing in Me, as the Scripture has said: ‘Out of his belly will flow rivers of living water.’”

#371 – Whose Report

I AM The LORD, I give words and visions, for where you are going. The word and vision is for the next season. You must grow into what you spiritually know, but have yet to mentally or intellectually understand.

Today’s word and vision is for tomorrow. The worry and anxiety is fruitless, but in excess, becomes a matter of faith. Whose report will you believe. The report of fear or MY report of Faith and Favor.

Wars and rumors of wars is not new to ME. The pestilence need not be feared, the pestilence reports to ME. Uncertainty and Faith have the same markers, they look similar from a distance. The difference is in the outcome, one is subject to chance and the greater is subject to ME.

Your spirit is asking, what am I to do then, LORD. The answer is in allowing ME to flow through you, to be an example of MY Peace and example of MY Calm. These only exist in ME and are exclusive aspects of MY Character. The world needs MY Peace, MY Calm and MY Reassurance.

This is not found in any store, cannot be bought, nor sold and cannot be hoarded. Give MY people, MY Peace. Give MY people, MY Kindness. Give MY people, MY love. Give MY People, MY Calm. Give MY People, MY Faith.

Job 22:21-22
“Agree with God, and be at peace; thereby good will come to you. Receive instruction from his, and lay up his words in your heart.”

#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.

#368 – From Consuming to Constructing

A seed sown is better than a fruit harvested. The seed becomes a tree and a tree makes way for a forest. The forest serves for a lifetime and the fruit serves for a day. Shift your thinking from consuming to constructing.

I AM a builder and have commissioned you in MY likeness. The seeds sown in you are to be sown into the world. Some fruits are food and some are seeds, to be sown for your next season, your next lifetime and for the next generation.

What you are sowing is not for you alone, but for all that I have called you to love, serve and transform. There are benefactors, that will thrive from your actions today, long after your presence on this earth.

This is legacy and this is how an inheritance is left to last from generations to generations. Walk in the footprints, that I have made for you and those coming after you will run. They will run where you walked, because of it.

Proverbs 11:24-25
One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.

#367 – The Blame is not Yours

At a point, you must choose. Either you will be a servant of Trust or a slave to Trauma. What you have seen and what you have endured, were not your fault and you are not to be blamed.

The blame is not yours, but I have entrusted you with the burden. This is your cross of infirmity. I have trusted you with this trauma for a divine purpose and for one of MY highest calls. Do you trust ME?

Take MY hand, let us erect a scaffold for healing, a platform to ease pain and a resting place for others traumatized, in the same way. You will be MY Moses and you will lead MY people out the slavery of pain.

With MY burden comes a blessing and with MY yoke comes an ease to carry. You have not been rejected, you have been selected. You have not been excluded, but have been secluded, by MY very SPIRIT. MY hand is on you.

Matthew 11:28-30
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

#366 – My Mind is Settled

I have settled ALL affairs concerning you, from MY infinite heavenly throne. It is done and it is so, with NO other, that can change MY mind or remove you from MY hand. MY mind is settled about you.

The debt has been paid in full with interest. The anointing in David caused a wrath in Saul, as David played for Saul, Saul twice threw spears at David’s head. The spears missed David and the spears will miss you, the spears are coming, because of the anointing.

I AM the God of the fruitful womb and the barren womb. I AM the God of Plenty and the God of Few. I AM the God over the bountiful harvest and I am the God over the famine. I AM the God of the valley and the God of the Mountain top.

I will return what has been lost, stolen and forgotten. Man may lose sight of what was, but I do not, MY remembrance is perfect. Never again will you find yourself destroyed or disgraced.

Joel 2:25-27
The LORD says, “I will give you back what you lost to the swarming locusts, the hopping locusts, the stripping locusts, and the cutting locusts. It was I who sent this great destroying army against you. Once again you will have all the food you want, and you will praise the LORD your God, who does these miracles for you. Never again will my people be disgraced. Then you will know that I am among my people Israel, that I am the LORD your God, and there is no other. Never again will my people be disgraced.

#365 – Wounded, Betrayed and Abandoned

Your freedom is connected to your forgiveness. There are some people that you are holding to a past and former pain. They have moved on, but you are still holding a bag full of bad memories.

The freedoms you are seeking are within your own hand and heart. Once you are willing to release them, then that space in your heart becomes available for the new resident, LOVE.

Indeed, you have been wounded, betrayed and abandoned. This has been the refiner’s Fire, a pain that has purifying powers, if you allow it. Trust ME, in this purification process, to do a perfect work.

Choose forgiveness and you will choose freedom. Take MY keys and release those you have imprisoned through unforgiveness, once you have freed them, you can now release yourself.

Ephesians 4:31-32
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

#364 – Hiding your Scars

I see a floodgate of souls, waiting for the specific, unique and essential voice of your testimony. Release the floodgate. Allow what you have seen and been through to become a beacon of hope for others. ⠀

Perfection comes through process. The potter pounds the clay to mold it, he then places it in the fire, to establish it. The pounding of pain and the fire of disappointment are your perfectors and not your problem. ⠀

Hiding your scars is not courageous, it is allowing the shame of a past defeats, to defeat you again. The scar is a permanent tattoo of what you have been through, what you have survived and what was not capable of defeating you. ⠀

Sharing your story is sharing MY Glory. It was ME, that brought you through the storm. It was ME, that left the 99 to find you, the one. It was ME, that placed you on the potter’s wheel and it was ME, that placed you in the fire. ⠀

Jeremiah 18:6⠀
Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel.⠀

#363 – MY gift in you is a Well

As you are looking for your place in the world, find your place in MY Kingdom. Your place in MY Kingdom is eternal and will clarify your place in this world. What the world wants and what the world needs are not the same.

It chases one thing, to achieve it and it, like most other things, does not satisfy. MY gift in you is a well, it is a well flowing with living waters, living waters of life, peace and rejuvenation. Be reminded, your gift has made room for you.

It is your skillset that generates compensation, but your gift of leadership (influencing in a positive way), your gift of administration (bringing clarity of focus), your gift of discernment (seeing the contrast between perception and reality) and your gift of exhortation (inspiring hope and healing) is why you are there. It is also why they will retain you.

The job is one thing and your work is another. The world has commissioned you for a job, God has commissioned you for HIS work. Do the work and the job will fall into place.

John 4:13-14
“Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.

#360 – You are MY Greatest Creation

I AM Holy and I AM making you Holy. Holy in heart and in mind. Your concerns over missing ME in the past are no more. This is the season of possession, the scrolls have been read and the land is yours.

You are now, to draw it out and walk fully in it. Only Sons and Daughters have an inheritance, an inheritance making them joint heirs. They move within MY favor, it is poured out over their heads, so it drips, like the dew on a leaf.

You are MY greatest creation, MY best handy work, Made in MY image and with MY likeness. To see you reminds ME of MY covenants, the ones made in Christ and the ones, I have made to MYSELF. MY best is in you, MY best Flows through you and MY best is for you.

Holy is who you were made and Holy is who you now are. Wear it like a precious coat and like a fine tunic. You are MY presence in the earth. As I have blessed you, use MY Glory, which is now your glory, to bless others.

2 Cor. 3:18
We all, with unveiled faces, are looking as in a mirror at the glory of the Lord and are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory; this is from the Lord who is the Spirit

#359 – Remain in the Fire

Anxiety is a weapon of the evil one, designed to cause you to peak or speak, too soon. It is like bread in an oven, if taken from the fire, too soon. It is not good for anyone.

It will smell like the real thing, look like the real thing and even taste like the real thing, until the deep call unto the deep. You will take an opportunity to impress upon many and squander it, because you have become, too much … too fast.

Take your time and get it right. Measure twice and cut it once. Remain in the fire. You have to let it burn. In the fire, purification removes the once needed moisture.

Appropriate things, in the appropriate places. Moisture is good to soften hard things, so that you can absorb, what I Am showing you, but when your gift is ready to be served to the people. It must be firmed by the fires of experience, heartache and pain.

This is when your gift will make room for you, because it has been perfected by MY perfecting fire. Your gift becomes both, what I bestowed and what you have earned. This is MY yoke destroying power.

Proverbs 17:3
The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold, and the Lord tests hearts

#357 – Surround yourself with MY Glory

All that you have gone and go through is for others. Like Christ, you bear the infirmities of others. To help, to humble and to heal the troubles of this world. I want you to be filled with empathy.

With each burden comes MY grace to carry the load. The burden is not yours to lift alone, use the family of faith to strategically distribute the load. Call upon the warriors of prayer.

Surround yourself with MY Glory, MY Praise and MY Worship. You are not alone in this, I Am here. Raise your hands to ME and accept the help that comes only from the LORD.

Depression is a spirit and it is not of ME. The darkness comes from a string of disappointments and defeats. Do not listen to the enemy’s voice. This is a moment and not a monument.

Isaiah 43:5-7
“Do not be afraid, for I am with you. I will gather you and your children from east and west. I will say to the north and south, ‘Bring my sons and daughters back to Israel from the distant corners of the earth. Bring all who claim me as their God, for I have made them for my glory. It was I who created them.’”

#356 – You will Fly

The surge is the favor of man or a society based popularity. Many are chasing the surge, only to get there and find nothing. The surge looks good, but it is ultimately unfulfilling. The surge is neither good or bad, it is how we view it.

When the surge becomes a god, it is also an idol and it is competing for your heart. When you flow within the surge and your positioning is aligned to ME, the surge works for your benefit.

The best surge experience is when you are moving according to MY timing, being and doing your best according to what you have, allowing the surge to find you. Trust ME and the surge happens around you.

Do not chase the surge, but be mindful of it. Let it be the wind to your wings, but do not let the surge become a crutch and refuse to let the surge replace your wings. You will fly, not because of men, but because of ME.

Isaiah 40:31
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

#354 – Avoid the victims Mindset

A spirit of division has been released to create separation from the head and the body. This includes covenant relationships, spiritual relationships and the ultimate internal relationship.

The spirit of divorce is being disguised as empowerment, to plant seeds of division in marriages, ministries and in the minds of men. The main seed of the enemy is offense. He is using hurt feelings and pain to drive a wedge between you and what you love.

Division between you and leadership, but most importantly a division between your spirit and your soul. By spending valuable efforts and energy defending yourself, holding grudges, proving others wrong or seeking vengeance you assume a role made for ME.

Avoid the victims mindset. This is caused when handling a legitimate and reasonable offense in an illegitimate and unreasonable way. As a bearer of the light and MY righteousness, your light is most needed in the darkest moments. You become an agent of the enemy, when the darkness succumbs.

Romans 12:20-21
Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

#353 – Old Goals

You are being diluted, not because of something bad, but because of something good. It is the dissecting of a thing, that is perfect and whole, becoming two separate things.

Two independent things, that are competing for the same resources. It all looks good to the eye and was desirable in a past season, but that time has now gone. That season is behind you.

To take on this old thing, in a new season, would be a retreating and a sliding backwards. The placing of new wine into old wineskins or the cleaning of the body, to put on previously soiled clothing.

The enemy is using old goals and passions, to confuse you, causing you to turn away from the present, for the past. To turn your gaze, from what is ahead, to what is behind you. He is distracting you with a good, but a former thing.

Mark 2:22
“And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the wine would burst the wineskins, and the wine and the skins would both be lost. New wine calls for new wineskins.”

#352 – You are a Spiritual Force

Be reminded of the transformative power in your words. You are a spiritual force to be reckoned with. I have made you to speak life and not death, to help heal and not to hinder.

The enemy will send people and things to either add or subtract from you, to alter your aim and your focus. Your anointing is in your focus, anything that detracts from your focus is a diverging vision.

Thereby creating divisions, two separate visions, one from God and the other from man. You will not be able to pursue both. You must choose one or the other. No man can serve two masters, he can truly love just one.

In this choice, some feelings may be hurt and some relationships strained. This is needed, to accept the temporary lesser good, in order, to later lay siege to the greater good.

Matthew 6:24
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

#351 – The Counterfeit Christ

Be mindful in this season of expanding your territory. There is a distinction between vision and division. Growth is good and is a requirement, find the difference between larger and enlargement.

Opportunity is coming that will seem to enlarge you, but it is false. It will be a larger role, with larger responsibilities and larger exposure, but it is a clever distraction. It is an opportunity designed to make you miss, divine opportunity.

It is a counterfeit thing, placed in your path heading toward the real thing. This is a dividing of the vision and a diversion from MY plans. It looks goods, sounds good and may feel good, but many are the plans of man’s heart.

This is the evil one, the counterfeit christ, one posing as an angel of light. He gives a premature glory, one that has not been bestowed, nor fully understood. Without a full clarity of glory and a constant connection to the one that holds all Glory, MY Glory will be abused.

Proverbs 19:21
You can make many plans, but the LORD’s purpose will prevail!

#349 – Not like Man

Meekness is might under restraint. Weakness is a fertile state where God can demonstrate his power. God gives might to the fatigued and expands the authority of the weak. Are you tired or fatigued? Then it is time to stop operating in your own power and authority.

I AM not like man, I do not give responsibility without authority. Where there is a mandate, there is also the ability to execute. When I hold you to account, it is because I have provided ample resources to execute the goal. I always measure according to your ability and your talent.

Because I know you and love you, I AM confident in what you are capable of. Will you trust ME? Will you obey ME? Will you overcome the fear that says you can not do it? Like Moses, what you are called to is bigger than you and your deliverance is tied to your obedience.

Move past the limitations of your strengths and the scarcity of resources you can see. Proceed wisely, as a serpent and gently as a dove using faith as a weapon against the enemy. This is about taking back what the Devil has stolen and redeeming the lost.

Number 23:19
God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?

#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.

#347 – Reconsider Your Conflicts

Reconsider your conflicts. The pressure and stress is not about having a difference of opinion or being offended by a friend. This is about what God is forming in you. This is a threshing floor from on High, you are being separated from the chaff.

The perplexing aspects are divine pressure points of provocation, to force you to reevaluate some fundamental components of your character. The only way to offend you is if the offense exists, somewhere in you.

This is God using atmospheric pressure to demonstrate a gap in your sensibilities, processes of evaluation and underlining parts of your subconscious behaviors. The question is not about your rights, the question is about expediency, what is the right thing to do?

Are you willing to overlook a transgression, to preserve a personal relationship? What is more important, as you evaluate this from an eternal perspective? What grace would you want, if the roles were reversed? This is the heart of the matter.

James 1:12
God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

#346 – I was Pulverized

I left eternity wrapping Myself in time, to die. To die, the most horrible death known to man, for You. For you, I endured humiliation, disrespect and shame. I separated Myself from the Father and was bruised by HIM.

It was deliberately done, calculated and precisely measured. The time, the place, the season, the persecutors were are all specific and done on purpose. All done to save you, protect you and to redeem you.

I was despised by MY own, I was rejected by MY culture and I was condemned by MY bloodline. I held the sorrows and griefs of men on my head with the crown of thorns, smitten by both God and man. I bore your infirmities in MY bosom.

For your transgressions, I was wounded and for your iniquities I was pulverized. Though oppressed and afflicted, I did not open MY mouth. As a sheep taken to slaughter, I have bore every chastisement and loved you, so much, to wash your sin away.

Isaiah 53:10-11
But it was the LORD’s good plan to crush him and cause him grief. Yet when his life is made an offering for sin, he will have many descendants. He will enjoy a long life, and the LORD’s good plan will prosper in his hands. When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish, he will be satisfied. And because of his experience, my righteous servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for he will bear all their sins.

#345 – In the Time of Trouble

There is a pressure point, where slavery is appealing opposed to death and prison is more desirable than sinning against God. The measure of strength is not during its abundance, the measure of strength is in its absence. Where is your strength in the troublesome times?

The best time to operate in your gift is in the time of trouble. Strength in moments of peace and prosperity are not true indicators. It is the difficulties that produce the sweetest fruit, it is time for you to examine your heart and motives.

Do not shy away from the hard thing, this is were growth happens and where I am able to infuse MY will into your heart. The view from the mountain top is different from the valley. I need you to have both perspectives.

A view of wealth and poverty, a view of peace and war, a view of health and sickness, a view of Faith and fear can be best known by experience. I need you to know the distinction between an anointed mandate and spiritual manipulation.

Isaiah 43:1-3
Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord you God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.

#344 – An Offended You

Have a short memory and take the emotions out of your decisions. Offense will always be present and the enemy uses it to steal your joy. An offended you is not a Holy you. Consider this, the mounting attempts to offend you are the evidence, that you are close to a breakthrough.

David was offended and thought to kill Nabal because of his disrespect and disregard. David was about to make a decision that would change the trajectory of his life. He was exiled, hungry, thirsty and exhausted. This one decision would undermined his calling.

David embraced the spirit, good sense and kindness of Abigail. In your moments of intense frustration and anger, find Abigail before finding your sword. Refuse to let the actions of a Nabal, a foolish person influence your behaviors.

David said, ‘You have kept me from using my own hands to get even.’ This too is your mandate, allow God the room to rectify and restore. Vengeance is for the Lord. Focus on the wisdom of the Abigails and ignore the foolishness of the Nabals.

1 Samuel 25 (Excerpt 25-31)
The Lord your God will certainly give you and your family line a kingdom that will last. That’s because you fight the Lord’s battles. You won’t do anything wrong as long as you live. Someone may chase you and try to kill you. But the Lord your God will keep your life safe like a treasure hidden in a bag. And he’ll destroy your enemies. Their lives will be thrown away, just as a stone is thrown from a sling. The Lord will do for you every good thing he promised to do. He’ll appoint you ruler over Israel. When that happens, you won’t have this heavy load on your mind. You won’t have to worry about how you killed people without any reason. You won’t have to worry about how you got even.
