I am angry and hurt, God. I do not understand it. I have honored you and my fellow man, yet the outcomes are chaotic. You say to turn the other cheek and you say walk another mile. When will enough be enough?
I will continue to trust, but I need some grace, give me a sign to press on. This is hard to accept, I need your mercy. I want to be forgiven, but find it hard to forgive. I need your comfort.
The image of who I am and the reality are not the same. Am I becoming, who I aspire to be or just a fraud? Cover me with wisdom to protect from the enemy, within me.
Purge the darkness in my heart, that is connected to traumas and pains. Please reconcile the genuine authentic me, with the me, that is afraid to let go and trust you.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
A Good name is better than money. It is a reputation of trust and an honest man can be found on any level. It is best to be poor and honest, then to be rich and full of lies. When you operate with integrity, doing business above board, you are transacting in the heavens and making ME proud.
Good news is the salve to a weary heart. It is like washing the dirt of the day from one’s feet. It can change the atmosphere by lifting hearts, minds and spirits. Good news brings life, but gossiping lips, take life away.
Good work is a mark of a master craftsmen. The mastering of one’s craft is perfection and can be a means to sharing ME, the perfect one. Let your work distinguish you in the marketplace and let your work ethic be a witness of your God.
Good friends are real treasures, they come to lighten the load of living. You are enhanced by those invited into your world. Life is to be lived in community, through covenants relationships and working together.
The good man brings good things out of his good store of treasure, and the evil man brings evil things out of his evil store of treasure.
All that you were denied in the forms of compassion, empathy, direction, wisdom and leadership are who you have become. The denial was part of the process and never a deviation.
Your value is not in what you do, but who you strategically are in the lives of those you are called to serve, enlightened and lead. The power is in your presence and not what you produce or present.
Your gift to the world is the embodiment of grace, courage and fortitude. The Freedom, the power and authority is in who you are and less what you do. The anointing does fall on you, but it is activated from within you.
You are designed to shift atmospheres with your presence, encouragement and reassurance. You have become, who I designed you to be. Walk in the authority of your name and your true character.
“Your name will no longer be Jacob,” the man told him. “From now on you will be called Israel, because you have fought with God and with men and have won.”
The hell you have a lived through has a purpose. It can be a beacon of light and hope. A promise rising from the ashes of pain. There are multiple answers, solutions and keys to life, hidden in your story.
Strive to be authentic and fulfilled, versus popular and happy. The accolades of men and ill-gotten pleasures will eventually fade, but who I made you to be and the contentment that flows from ME, will last forever.
It is fine, if you are reminded of what you have overcome, at times. Use these memories, as fuel, to wreak havoc on the enemies of life: defeat, darkness and depression. You can either be tormented by the past, or use your past to torment the enemy.
To a defeated mindset, remind them they can win, as you have won. To a darkened soul, illuminate their countenance by bringing to mind, my everlasting grace and mercy. To a depressed spirit, intercede on their behalf for clarity of purpose.
1 Samuel 2:8
He lifts the weak from the dust; he raises the poor from the ash heap to seat them with princes and to bestow on them an honored position. The foundations of the earth belong to the LORD, and he has placed the world on them.
Hold your tongue, until the spirit of forgiveness comes. Offenses are strategic forces that arise to detour, delay & destroy you at a specific place and time. The timing of the offense is an indication of your spiritual assignment.
When you override an offense, it is turning a roadblock into a roadway. Moving from no understanding to a common standing. You cannot change nor confront every offender, but you can lessen the offender’s sting, by letting it go.
By removing the offenders arrows from your heart. Soon you will see the offenses as jewels. You have become such a threat to the kingdom of darkness, that you are a worthy target.
This is a high honor, it indicates walking in purpose and an alignment with ME. Welcome to becoming the hunter and no longer the enemy’s prey. This is the cost for kingdom power, your comfort.
Whoever covers an offense seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates close friends.
I love from everlasting to everlasting this is who I AM. All that is good, soothing or brings joy is from ME. Love does not exist without ME. I AM the author, manufacturer, distributor and it cannot be expressed without MY communion.
You were made with love, through love and for love, by the ONE that is comprised of Love. Confused? Find the love and you will find ME. Operate in love and purpose becomes clear. Submit to love and pain subsides. Harness love and you can control depression, darkness and a defeated spirit.
Let love lead. Anger is easy and pain is free, but love has a cost. Some will misuse it, others will abuse and a few with take your loving heart as a weakness. Despite what you see and how you feel. Love.
Consider your options. It is either to love or operate in fear. I AM asking you to love because when, where and who you love, gets ME. Use your power to love in the place of fear and it will change the trajectory of a soul.
1 Corinthians 16:13-14
Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. And do everything with love.
I want to be free in mind and spirit, clear to hear from you Lord. I have so many unholy thoughts running through MY mind. Thoughts of fear and comparing MY life, to the life of others. I feel inadequate, yet you to speak me.
You have placed your words in my mouth, give me the right heart for your people. I need a shift in my attitude and my mindset. I want to see people the way you see them. Please forgive me for having a critical spirit.
I noticed that many of my thoughts are selfish and based on jealousy. I need your help to fix my heart. Remove the spirit of judgment and fill me with your reckless everlasting love. Make my heart unconditional.
I need divine healing, establish me from the inside out. I repent for placing my desire above yours. I repent for not trusting you and for leaning to my own understanding. You are my God and I will submit to you. Praise your name Father.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding
What have you done with the talents I have given you? Some have many, others have a few and others have one. How are you helping MY people? The gift you have is from ME and designed to reflect ME.
Are you using your talents to build up treasures or to build MY kingdom? When you build wealth, you will have wealth for a season. When you build MY people you will build communities, societies and humanities. This is MY heart and MY vision.
If you build what is seen, it will be eventually lost. If you build the unseen, it will last forever. Who are you building for? Who are you seeking to impress? What kingdom are you working to support, the kingdom of light or the kingdom of darkness?
Serve MY people and their needs. Living life for self is a life living lost. Humble yourself and you will be exalted, exalt yourself and you will be humbled. Exalt others and you will leave a legacy.
The greatest among you must be a servant. But those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.
Your witness is in your peace. It is in the way you remain calm when others are anxious. Seeing the hope in a hopeless situation. Your lifestyle shows people how to handle the pressures of life with grace.
Many that are unable to receive me, will receive you. Carry ME with you, so that MY peace can be a comforter. An alternative to cycles of pain and addiction. Be MY heart helper.
Wealth is the god of this world. It can pay for the best in care, but not buy health. It can pay for companionship, but not buy a friend. It can pay for affection, but not buy love. It can pay for happiness, but not buy joy.
With or without money, I am sending you, because the world is hurting. The world is full of money, yet it is poor. It is filled with temporal pleasures, that have no eternal value. You, however are rich with spiritual gifting and MY love.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Death has no fury, so do not fear it. Dying is not the end of living, it is the end of one’s presence in this dimension. Life goes on through messages, ideas and movements.
Your legacy will live, be bold enough to build it. The world cannot benefit from the wisdom stored in your memories. Share with the world, what I have entrusted in you. Live in the Dreams I have given you.
Trust what you see, when your eyes are closed, trust what I deposited into you. Trust the hope, the peace and the encouragement, these are more valuable than wealth and possessions.
Give your fellow man a taste from the cup of life, that I have a lavished on you. Begin to pour into others, allow what I have shared privately to be known publicly. Expose MY secrets to the word.
2 Timothy 1:10
And now he has made all of this plain to us by the appearing of Christ Jesus, our Savior. He broke the power of death and illuminated the way to life and immortality through the Good News.
Guard your heart, some that have began the journey with you, will eventually fade away. Many have helped, but the seed was from God and the harvest is for you. You were made for this day and all that is coming to you was destined, from the beginning.
The many, many struggles were for the purposes of teaching you, stretching you and building you. The blessings coming your way have always been. Due to your obedience they are now shifting, shifting from the spirit realm to the natural realm.
You are in a phenomenal, but fragile phase of growth. It is the birthing of something that will change your life, your children’s lives and each subsequent generation, if you will remain true to your covenant with God.
Through the simplicity of placing God first, in all that you do. You will single handily break the curses of fear, poverty, immorality and witchcraft, permanently in your bloodline.
Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
The light and the darkness have been warring for a long while, in you. By Christ’s grace and mercy, through your obedience, the light is prevailing. Your faith has caused a promotion in the spirit realms.
Your Promotion is a light and many are drawn, but not for the right reasons. They want the light, but are not willing to do what you have done. This is problematic and will cause those drawn to you to become stumbling blocks.
They want the prize, but not the process. Everyone will be kind and caring, until getting what they want becomes futile. Like Cain killing Abel, some will attack you, while being angry with themselves. Angry because they made the wrong sacrifices.
You have permission to say NO. Say No to any thing that violates your peace or your core values. Protect your heart from those that only take and have no intentions to give. Protect your light from those with no light of their own and seek to make yours dim.
You are the light of the world. A city on a hillb cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead, they set it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
I AM not asking for you to be perfect, I desire for you to be holy. Holy. A heart that seeks holiness can be eventually perfected. Not an outward form of holiness designated by man, but inward holiness that can only be established and substantiated by ME.
Out of the holiness in your spirit, all things flow and are sanctified. Your submission to MY Holy Will, produces a Holy Soul. By offering up the first fruits of your spirit, I will also, give you a Holy Flesh.
Take your private time with ME more seriously, allow it to become a time of consecration and reflection. Prayer is more than a petition, it is also for impartation. Listen, after you asked, I have solutions you need to hear.
As you begin to move from consecrated moments to a consecrated life. The desires of the flesh begin to diminish and your hearing becomes sharper. Your hearing produces faith and in your hearing MY presence dwells. Those that hear are chosen and it is out of MY benevolence, you have heard.
You must be holy because I, the LORD, am holy. I have set you apart from all other people to be my very own.
What is important to you is also important to ME. As the Father, MY ways are higher than your ways and MY thoughts higher than your thoughts. This means, that how I behave is based on MY sovereignty and cannot be dictated by man.
The sister of Lazarus had an expectation based on her presumptive nature, but his sickness was not onto death. His condition was placed on a pedestal, so that the outcomes would give ME Glory and glorify MY Son.
You are MY masterpiece and through you all must be displayed, the good days, along with the bad. You are MY demonstration of the times of triumph and the times of many tears. Despite what you see, your situation not onto death.
If I resurrected Lazarus, I can resurrect anything: your marriage, your health, your business and your finances. Here is the hard part, in order for there to be a resurrection, something or someone must die. Weep if needed, but this moment will not last, for I AM the Lord of resurrection.
“This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”
You are alive, though tattered and bruised. Life is still yours and all that has been lost and gained, are the lessons. You have the answers to the questions, that many or fearful to ask.
As Jesus spoke to Peter saying, on this truth (cornerstone) I will build my church and the gates of hell, cannot prevail. The cornerstone becomes clear, the eternal is built on truth, then the cornerstones of your life, must be the same.
All that you have seen and conquered are the building blocks of your very hope. Many mistake what is seen, as permanent and the unseen is not considered. The kingdom of heaven is built by the substance and evidence of things unseen.
In that, be humble and thankful for each bruise, each scar, every hurt and all the rejections. Why, because they have built the unseen, the truth and the eternal bricks of your FAITH.
And I say also to you, That you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
The world will try to convince you, that who you are and how you are made is not enough, that being something else is better. Not smart, not strong, not beautiful, no matter what, you are just not enough.
This lie is highly effective, it causes two problems. As you conform to an image of another and fulfill a role not your own. Your divine position is left vacant and simultaneously block another’s way.
If you lack energy, tap into ME. If you lack confidence, ask of ME. If you lack strength, remember I AM omnipotent. If you lack clarity, pray for wisdom. If you lack control, ask he who controls all things.
The magnitude of who I AM is found in MY Glory. Every aspect of who I AM and what I do has MY DNA. All MY sons and daughters have this same DNA. Finding the true you is found in truthful seeking ME.
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.
Like Gideon, your adversary and your problems will soon be destroyed. The issues may seem big and the numerous enemies may seem strong. Yet it will be, as if you were fighting just one man.
The power to prevail is not based on inner strengths, but in who has called you, to the fight. The fight is not yours. The winning or the losing is not up to you. The battle is MINE, I AM the Lord.
Gideon was the weakest man, from the weakest clan, but he was the one I chosen to save MY people. I called Gideon, a ‘Mighty Warrior’, based on the promises placed inside him.
Like many, Gideon suffered with self doubt and insecurities, but your resume’ does not matter. The question before Gideon, is the question before you now. “Am I not sending you?”
I will be with you. And you will destroy the Midianites, as if you were fighting against one man.
I see the hurt and the pain. It was unjust and extremely unfair, but hear this! You will survive, you will live and not die. I have given you a daily portion, to last beyond this moment. Just focus on today, tomorrow has its own.
It is time to let go of the pain and the perpetrators, to search diligently for forgiveness. Not for their sake, but for your own. Can you forgive those that betrayed you and that robbed you of innocence?
The most difficult person to forgive is the one in the mirror. The moment has come to give yourself permission to accept forgiveness, to be guilt and shame free. You have punished yourself enough.
Stop suffering at your own hands, it will not change anything. What is done is done. Stand up, move away from the old you and do better. You have paid a high cost, walk in your freedom.
“When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.”
Take some time to witness all the beautiful things, I have made for you to enjoy. Why would I create such splendor, if I wanted you to suffer? The wonder of a sunrise or a sunset is magnificent to see.
Every aspect of who you are is important to ME. I am so powerful, that even your sinfulness, cannot deter MY Glory. What I commanded of you will be fulfilled, to the letter and that which was determined before your mother’s womb, will be achieved.
No matter the level of hell conjured, whether by omissions or commissions, the adversary will not and cannot prevail against ME. Despite the darkness seen and the levels of demonic warfare on display, the Light shining from the Kingdom of Heaven, is well at hand.
Weep when needed, but do not worry. In times of weakness, worship. In moments of pain, praise. When the weight of the world is on your shoulders, dig into the word. Use the creative power in your lungs to speak vitality, speak peace and to speak MY promises.
Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
There as many opinions, points of views and perspectives that the world will offer and even demand that you accept. It is time to question some things, How does that opinion align with eternity?
The kingdoms of this world are moved by the notions of men that have not been washed with the blood, are enslaved by sin and serve the prince of the air. The prevailing ideas of the day are determined by the best argument.
A Spirit of self deception has been empowered to choose what is and is not truth. MY will and MY word are not debatable. I AM Sovereign and Eternal, MY thoughts are higher than your thoughts.
This is a clarion call, choose today, MY plan or man’s plan, MY word or man’s word, MY opinion of you or man’s opinion of you and specifically, MY will for your life or man’s will for your life.
2 Corinthians 10:5
We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ.
I AM releasing you. You are released from filling shoes designed for others and released from performing. Performing for people that do not matter and do not have your best interests at heart.
I have come to set the captives free, as MY disciples, you are not robots programmed to be holy. I formed you for freedom. MY followers are free thinkers, that find truth and power in MY word.
Be mindful of religious clicks and steer clear of spiritual pettiness. MY presence and MY call always produces freeness. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Liberty equals Life.
There is a place for denominations and for doctrine. Neither, however, can take the place of spirit and truth. Guard your faith and watch carefully for seductive spirits and the doctrines of demons.
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the LORD’s favor has come. ”
What does heaven celebrate? It rejoices when a soul is set free and enters eternal life. It is euphoric when a wayward child returns home. It savors when love is chosen over fear.
It revels when cycles of pain are being broken. It rejoices when a child honors a mother and a father. It is joyous when a marriage is restored and it praises, when faith heals a body.
There is so much to celebrate and to memorialize if you are looking. Daily, lives are being changed irreparably for good and generational curses are being broken. Love is defying pain, hurt and fear.
Compassion and empathy are on the rise, love is doing what no army or government can ever do. It is restoring hearts and minds. Love is winning and that is the only victory that matters.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever!
What are you becoming? I have a specific plan and a desired outcome for you. The popular views of the day and life goals of the masses are far below MY standards and the fullness MY potential.
As I am sovereign, what I am building in you is also, sovereign. Complete, self-sufficient and self-reliant, a strong building is one that emerges from the bedrock. You are being built from the substratum to serve as a backbone for society.
The intellectual fads of the day that serve as motivation and inspiration will fade, as the seasons pass. Place your confidence in the rock of MY word and MY Eternal presence, that seals it.
Seek the truth and receive the truth. Seek the short term and receive the short term. Seek the imperishable and receive the imperishable. Seek a compromise and receive a compromise. Seek the Lord God and receive the Lord God.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile
I have said, that you can! That is all that matters. You were created to be smart and clever, use it. Use all that you are and all that you are capable of, to stretch towards the mark.
The winning is not exclusively in the outcomes, the winning is in competing and facing the enemy head on, despite the odds against you. Rise up to compete when others have forfeited, without trying.
Set your face like flint and fight for your very life. The competition is not in the circumstances, but in you facing the fear, inside you. The enemy is defeated, because you decided show up.
To the victor go the spoils of confidence, clarity and consistency. These are the tools, that give you an advantage in facing both fear and foe. The enemy is fear, either you control it or it will control you.
Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.
I understand it looks uncertain and there is no possible way it can work, just believe. I know it has never been done before, but just believe. I realize that few agree with you, but just keep believing.
I know that this is the hardest thing you have ever had to do, just believe. I know that you doubt yourself sometimes and it can be overwhelming, but just believe. I know you get frustrated, but just keep believing.
I know that you get tired and weary, just believe. I know you may want to give up and throw in the towel, but just believe. I know you feel unworthy and inadequate, but just keep believing.
Your belief and your unbelief are warring. The unbelief may always be present. As you offer your belief as a praise and lift your unbelief as a prayer, I will accept both as righteousness.
The father instantly cried out, ‘I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief.’
Hold on to the Hopes, the Promises and the Dreams. For they are all that you have. Money and possessions can pass away, popularity will fade. One that is up today, can be down on the next day.
What is Hope?
Hope is the partaking of a future joy, in the present moment. Hope is alive and it thrives when protected. If you sow in hope, you will reap in possibilities. Hope is key to surviving the mental warfare of this world. Hope is your umbilical cord.
What is a Promise?
A Promise is a guarantee from on high. It is God’s commitment to us, bound by HIS very word. Every letter of HIS Word is sealed with HIS sovereignty. Each promise is protected and connected to the existence of Heaven & Earth.
What is a Dream?
A Dream is a storyboard of what is to come. A tangible vision delivered to your subconscious, designed to bypass doubt and the second guessing of your mind. The dream is a blueprint of the future, secured and underwritten by the Blood of the Lamb. It cannot be unseen, denied or debated.
For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
2 Corinthians 1:20
For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.
He said, “Listen to my words: “When there is a prophet among you, I, the LORD, reveal myself to them in visions, I speak to them in dreams.
I know you are frustrated and feel left out, but your time is coming. This is the real testing. When you can obey with disobedience all around you and when you can speak truth, when most have already compromised.
Will you remain faithful, even though you have been betrayed? This season is about revealing the real you, to you. The reality of who you are measured by the acceptance of who you are called to be.
Anyone can worship, when things are going well. It is easy to be strong, when you have no problems. It is simple to speak with conviction, when all the accounts are full. It is time to see your circumstances through new lenses.
In your sufferings now, you are partaking in the sufferings of Christ, then. These trials qualify you to operate on a higher level of inheritance and a deeper level of intimacy. If you suffer and endure with him, you also will reign with him.
2 Timothy 2:11-13
Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him.
If we disown him, he will also disown us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.
Be steadfast in your pursuit of MY word and MY promises. Seek MY face. Seek MY heart, to discover the jewels, that I laid out for you. Long life and freedom are yours, to name a few.
Be persistent in your prayers and in your faith. Only speak that which builds and edifies. Only hear, what adds value and deposits into your account of faith. Guard your faith with absurd vigilance.
Be resistant to doubters and the naysayers, love them from afar, because you are building a house of faith. Only brick layers need apply. Deal with doubt next season, not now!
Be consistent in what you have heard and continue to read, fast and intercede on other’s behalf. The former promises are yet true, all will be filled and fulfilled, down to the very last word.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.
I rebuke the spirit of compromise. The world has sold you a bill of goods and you are asking it for permission to be you. Your so called friends have become idols and limiting barriers to fully embracing ME.
MY Word declares, I will have no other gods before ME. You have a choice: to choose the charity of men or to choose intimacy with ME. If you yield to the will of this world, you are knowingly accepting a lesser god.
Wake up and find yourself, your loyalties are misguided. The affirmations of men are not worth your soul. One thing is assuredly true, these would not make the same sacrifice for you.
Make the adjustment, before too much ground is lost. MY heart misses you, I AM searching for you, in the place you should be. Where are you Adam? Walk with ME again in the cool of the day.
Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him (Jesus), but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
Stand alone in your purity. You are a chosen vessel of the Great I Am, it is all the authenticity, authority and affirmation you need. What is already contained inside you is greater than what stands against you.
Stand alone in your salvation. You did not choose the Lord, it was I that chose you first. What I make is perfect and is perpetually being perfected. ALL else is a cheap carbon copy, an unauthorized replica.
Stand alone in your convictions. Christ’s death is your life. The new you has eclipsed the old you and your proof of HIS Glory is exemplified in your converted heart and mind. Refuse to relapse into the old you.
Stand alone in your calling. He who is called is also equipped. You are now amongst a peculiar people. You do not answer too any man, but there is an answer in you for every man.
Because thou art a holy people to the Lord thy God. The Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be his peculiar people of all peoples that are upon the earth.
You are not your own, you were bought with a price. When the ransom was due, I paid it in full. The wages of your sin was death, but Christ stepped in as a kinsman redeemer, to make payment in full.
He paid it all and you operate in freedom, as a result. You are free and the bondage has been relinquished. Remove the limitations of what you cannot do and cannot have, you are no longer a slave.
This means your freedom in Christ is more than a fringe benefit. It is birthright and MY due benevolence, as your Lord. The birthright is the beginning, the first fruits, the foundation, the cornerstone and the genesis.
In all its power, freedom is not the prize in the race, it is merely the starting block, given to every believer. Through freedom you are capable of achieving the real prize, to reign in Eternal Glory, with ME.
1 Corinthian 7:22-23
And remember, if you were a slave when the Lord called you, you are now free in the Lord. And if you were free when the Lord called you, you are now a slave of Christ. God paid a high price for you, so don’t be enslaved by the world.
Bid onto me according to your word. Lord, I see the anointing and I see the promise, but how does it happen? You are the God that makes a way out of no way and I see no way. Help me with my vision, I need your help to see it. Glory to the one, who sits on the thrown.
As I am gaining in the spirit, things are being lost in the natural realms. My ego and my pride are taking on collateral damage. I am now realizing how much power, the opinions of man, have had over me. Glory to the Lamb.
As you expose my hidden parts, I am ashamed of what I see. Purge me Father. I thank you, for the good work, you are doing in me, help my heart in the interim, to press on. Glory to your Spirit.
What a mess, I see the old me as grotesque and yet, I do not feel worthy of the new me either. Nevertheless, I surrender to the transformation and I except the blood washed me. Glory to your name. Amen.
For with God nothing shall be impossible. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
MY permanent assignment is to completely cover, every aspect of your life. Your eyes open daily because of ME. As I dress the lilies of the field with splendor and form each mountain top, perfectly.
You being more important than these, I have reserved MY best, to dress and form you. Every day is brand new, every moment is brand new, every second is brand new and is a perfect gift from ME.
As the sunshine fills every crevice of the earth. It is all for you and your enjoyment. I AM blessing you, thinking of you and making a way for you. MY commitment to you has not wavered.
Rejoice, the Lord is on your side and your enemies are defeated. All things are working together for your benefit. An exponential increase is coming, because of your fortified trust in ME.
I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
Who do you need to let go and finally forgive? Forgiveness is a deep well and returning for a refreshing can occur, as much as, you need. It may even be for the same set of circumstances.
The thoughts of the offense may rise again and again, but you must choose forgiveness again and again. Healing is more than a single event, it is an entire process with a beginning, middle and end.
The process produces wholeness, the deeper the hurt and betrayal, may mean laying it at MY feet, many times. Allow the power of the process to do its perfect work, continue to pursue the process in front of you.
As your conscious mind is ready to heal another part of the pain. It will come to mind and it can then be submitted to the ME, through your spirit. Trust MY process and you will be made whole.
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Your victory is not connected to the outcome, but to obedience in doing the work. Be faithful in your work and consistent in demonstrating love, peace and kindness.
Let ME worry about the outcomes, for they are MINE. Your focus must remain on pleasing ME and not man. MY scorecard is the only one that matters, continue to press toward the mark.
MY calling is high and man’s callings are low. Look to ME and take your eyes off men. Continue to pray, to fast and to spend time in MY presence. For it is, I that will make the crooked places straight.
Every relationship, every situation, every mistake, every missed opportunity, every failed mission or anything you care to be restored, will be made whole. Whole by keeping your gaze steadfast on ME.
I will go before you And make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze And cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel.
Whatever I ask of you, I always provide a means and an anointing to accomplish. The world will hand you failures, rejections and betrayals, you must endure. On the other side of struggle is unearthed truth.
The failure is to free you from the outcomes. The rejection is freedom from man’s approval and the betrayal is to free you from people’s opinions. When you are free from these, you are free from fear.
The difference between the victory and the loss, is in the fight. Not if you fight well enough, to see the victory, but if you can fight long enough. Are you willing, to remain long enough, in the place of pressure to see your victory?
Your adversary has finite resources, but your lifeline is the Lord Almighty. I have infinite resources and a wellspring that cannot run dry. It may take a while, perhaps a long while, but the fight will be productive.
1 Tim. 6:12
Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you, which you have declared so well before many witnesses.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Your gifts are made for Influence, to shift the hearts, the cultures and the foundations of this world. What now indwells you, the gift, once indwelled ME. This is why the gift is beyond repentance.
This can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your heart. I have given you a power reserved only for man. Nothing else created has this same power to harness MY very image and likeness.
As your gift is without repentance. You can use your light, selfishly or to draw men to ME, the Higher Light. You can lead them astray or lead them to ME. It is your gift to use, misuse or abuse.
Consider your actions, there will be an accounting. Consider how you operated in the gifts entrusted to you. To whom much is given much is required. Be wise, continuously consult the Giver of your gift.
And a servant who knows what the master wants, but isn’t prepared and doesn’t carry out those instructions, will be severely punished, But someone who does not know, and then does something wrong, will be punished only lightly. When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.
A wise man learns something from all that impacts him and a fool is easily offended. To gain a self sustained confidence, will mean a shifting from faith in men, to faith in ME.
Opinions, opinions, and more opinions. Have you noticed that men will give advice from a place in their hearts, from which, they are not competent? The words they speak are for their own ears.
Opinions blow in the wind, they are fleeting and have no substance, some from the east and others push in from the west. The opinions of your environment have become the yokes of bondage.
You are no longer slaves, you instead are joint heirs, making you 100% MY Sons. You can move, walk and make decisions in supreme confidence, that the Mercy Seat is on your side and I AM standing with you.
I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt so you would no longer be their slaves. I broke the yoke of slavery from your neck so you can walk with your heads held high.
You are still performing for the affirmations of men. Looking for an external validation, always leads to compromise. An outside wind touches the body, but never the soul.
Your power is not in the opinion of another, it is and will alway be with ME. Trust ME in the storm and to make ways, from no ways. Trust ME with the seed of your faith and I will cause it to grow.
Your time and energy have value. Part with your Peace under no circumstances, whatever leads to chaos or confusion is not ME and is not for you.
Rise early and seek ME, so that your assignments are clear. When I say move, you must move. When I say listen, you must listen. When I say love, you must love. When I say forgive, you must forgive.
It is dangerous to be concerned with what others think of you, but if you trust the Lord, you are safe.
Galatians 1:10 Am I saying this now to win the approval of people or God? Am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be Christ’s servant.
Just show up at the appointed time. The fear of the battle will caused many to quit, but if you will just show up, you can win. Put on your armor and prepare to look the enemy straight in the eyes.
Win, lose or draw make your presence known. Raise your hand to be counted, submit your name for consideration and be certain to make your voice heard. Walking where most have retreated is a victory.
Goliath was undefeated, because he was undisputed, not one dared to challenge him, until a Shepherd boy, named David. He was unbeaten, because he was unchallenged.
The uncircumcised Philistines in your life are going unchecked and unchallenged. I have a special anointing available, if you would just show up to the battlefield. The victory is mine and the spoils will be yours.
1 Samuel 17:36-38
“Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God … David said moreover, The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the Lord be with thee.”
