#150 – Dust Yourself Off

The milk was spilled and the deed is done. It is over now and you made it to the other side, bruised, beaten and broken, but you are alive. Take a moment to evaluate, the many blessings that remain. Rejoice that your mind is still sound.

It is lunacy to overcome the worst ordeal in your life, beating the odds, to now, live as a second class citizen. Do not give the enemy a lifetime pass to shame you, for a momentary decision. Who you are is not what you do.

Dust yourself off, hold your head high and decide your path to healing. Take a moment to celebrate living. Everyday of living is a new lesson. As the omniscient God, I only train those, who I will soon give power and charge.

Nothing and no one can shut the doors, I AM opening for you. There is not a scheme or plan capable of being made, that will undermine ME. I AM for you and not against you. Heaven and Earth will pass away, before any promise goes unfulfilled.

Colossians 3:10-11
Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him. In this new life, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us.

#148 – Pass the Baton (Part 2)

There is a baton passed from season to season, a baton passed from generation to generation and a baton passed from the spirit realms to the earthly realms. Before it was Moses’s staff, then Israel’s Ark and now the Cross of Christ.

In life’s race there will be straightaways, uphills, downhills and curves. The straightaways are optimal conditions, requiring minimal focus. The uphills are the times of struggle and require perseverance and a focus.

The downhills are the times of prosperity and require restraint and humility. The curves are different, they can be times of trouble or great shifting. The curves are best handled by leaning into them, trust ME in the curves.

Submitting to the curve is assuming a posture of surrender, allowing inertia to dictate your velocity. Keeping momentum, is in knowing when to focus, persevere, be humble, use restraint or to surrender 100% to the process.

2 Corinthians 5:14-17
Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now! This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

#146 – An Earthly Deficit

You are a reflection of the light, connected to, the true and living light. It was ME that said, let there Be. I Am the source of all illumination and becoming the light is not your role. We are a team, MY dominion is Heaven and your dominion is earth.

Becoming too heavenly minded will lead to an earthly deficit. It is difficult, even impossible to be offended and anointed at the same time. The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy, through sin, you have taken on the enemy’s identities: becoming a thief, a murderer and a destroyer.

You are replacing your purpose, your calling and your gifting for a sinful disposition. It is time for ownership: things you have said, things you have done and things you are thinking. The results have been disastrous and people have been hurt.

The day of calling wrong, right and right, wrong are over. I need you, to get to a place where the actions and words of men, against you, do not matter. The only thing that matters is what I command you to do and who you are to become.

2 Timothy 2:24-26
Again I say, don’t get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights. A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people. Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth. Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants.

#140 – Times of Testing

In the moments of turmoil are where you will find the most sincere peace. Discovering faith in the chaos makes it all worthwhile and these times of testing, ensure a knowing of what a faith is made.

Growth is when you can see the victory and vanquishment in the same light, being aware that both are working together for your good. It is a shift in your prayers from deliverance and to becoming decisive.

Being fully persuaded, that the trouble in your world can be seen as a problem or the process, I Am using, to shape and mold you. It is your decision whether to lament or to be MY life of lamentation.

You are not a victim of circumstances, but are a preselected victor. The obstacles before you are no longer seen as predicaments of punishment, but are the processes of promotion asked for in prayer.

Romans 4:18-22
Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as he had been told, “So shall your offspring be.” Without weakening in his faith, he acknowledged the decrepitness of his body (since he was about a hundred years old) and the lifelessness of Sarah’s womb. Yet he did not waver through disbelief in the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God was able to do what He had promised. This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness

#104 – Chosen, Loved & Capable

Hope is the fuel and believing is the fire. Today is the beginning of renewed covenant with ME and with your own heart. A focus on shame and embarrassment is robbing you of MY Glory. Accept that you are chosen, loved and capable.

I AM the Lord, I hold life and every manner of DNA in MY hand. I AM more than the architect of life, I am the originator of living. The fear of failure and the pain of past defeats has limited how you live. Shame has displaced MY Glory.

Shame is the inability to receive forgiveness and to call MY regenerative, restorative, redeeming nature into question. Where you failed before was then, you are living in the NOW. Your NOW is renewed daily in ME.

Inside you is a unique power it makes blind eyes see, it makes lame men walk, it makes wombs whole again and it causes the dead, to live again. My breath of life is still in you and a sign that your assignment is yet done.

Philippians 3:12-14
I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.

#96 – Consecrate Yourself

Consecrate yourself to me, your five senses are for MY Glory. You are a holy people and a chosen generation.

Consecrate your mouth. You will not be able to speak, as others speak. Your words have a creative power, angels or demons are dispatched from the command of your voice.

Consecrate your tastes. You will not be able to eat, as others eat. Your food and drink must be in moderation and indulgence can lead to gluttony and the wasting of resources.

Consecrate your eyes. You will not be able to watch what others watch. Your eyes are holy and cannot see evil, even to be entertained. Accept only what is true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of a good report.

Consecrate your touches. You will not be able to touch or be touched, as others touch. Every part of you is the Lords, making your body Holy ground. Only those authorized can touch the anointing.

Consecrate your ears. You will not be able to hear, as others hear. What you listen to, either builds or destroys faith, the building block of life is faith. Your life depends on what you hear.

As you choose ME in all that you sense, a light will shine to destroy the darkness and expose MY Glory.

1 Peter 2:9-10
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

#94 – Your Fulfillment

Run your race. Some are made for marathons and others for a sprint, both are equal and good for the kingdom. Complete the task before you, have no concern for those to the left or to the right. Focus on your forward movement.

There is no value in covetousness, each member has his own portion. All my sons are royal each wearing a different gown and crown, assigned by ME. The purpose, calling and gifting are given to you in eternity and cannot be erased.

Measuring yourself to others only produces jealousy and a false identity. Focus on your assignment, master the beauty of you. Be who I made you to be. Anything outside of MY divine, design is man-made and will fail.

Focus on the distinct set of talents, abilities, gifts and skills, I have given you. Your blessings will come from these tools and your fulfillment will be birth from your own hand. When you remain with ME, in ME and for ME, your success is guaranteed.

Romans 12:1-2
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

#87 – Recommit to ME

Abundance is a good goal and a terrible god, the pursuit of the former has become your nemesis, you hunted better on an empty stomach. Succeeding has changed you, a fattened calf is only good for slaughter.

Worldly honor has exposed an obese heart, you have great insights and information, but little wisdom. Like many before, you have become an elitist, unknowingly forming a hierarchical system of Sadducees and Pharisees.

The power seems innocent, but it is wrapped in pomposity and dipped in piousness. Humility has been lost and you are serving an image. Ego is diminishing the anointing and causing a gap in trustworthiness, when it comes to MY sheep.

In the same way, one before sought his own glory apart from ME, Satan. Change your mind on this and renew your covenant with ME. Cease to spread your own gospel and your own opinions. Recommit to ME and to MY vision.

Matthew 23:25-28
“What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are filthy—full of greed and self-indulgence! You blind Pharisee! First wash the inside of the cup and the dish,i and then the outside will become clean, too.“What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs—beautiful on the outside but filled on the inside with dead people’s bones and all sorts of impurity. Outwardly you look like righteous people, but inwardly your hearts are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness.

#78 – You have Divine Consent

My anointing is Sovereign. I do not require any one’s permission or authority to establish you. What I decide will be so. In your gifts are the permissions and in your talents are the authority, to fulfill your purpose.

Your social standing is not your kingdom standing. To my apostles, I expect disciples. To my prophets, I expect foresight. To my teachers, I expect clarity. To my evangelists, I expect souls. To my pastors, I expect guidance.

I am your permission. I am your starting block. I am your benefactor. I am your assurance. I am your co-signer. I am your co-conspirator. I am your certitude. I am your confidence. I am your credence. I am your credentials.

Open your mouth to speak, open your hands to heal and open your heart to love. Your callings are eternal and backed by Heaven. You have divine consent to speak, to heal and to love without restraint, this dark world is your assignment.

1 John 2:24-27
The What you have heard from the beginning must remain in you. If what you have heard from the beginning remains in you, then you will remain in the Son and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that He Himself made to us: eternal life. I have written these things to you about those who are trying to deceive you. The anointing you received from Him remains in you, and you don’t need anyone to teach you. Instead, His anointing teaches you about all things and is true and is not a lie; just as He has taught you, remain in Him

#75 – The Purpose for Grace

You missed the mark and you will miss others. This is the purpose for grace. Grace did not come after sin, but before established in MY covenant with Abraham. Grace is an insurance policy for sin.

I am a wheel within a wheel, a plan within a plan, insights inside of insights. I am the Lord. There is nothing in Heaven or on Earth, created or imagined that can outsmart ME. All your mistakes are covered.

I am eternally prepared to protect my beloved, my heart. Can you wrap your brain around the love of an ever present, perfect Savior, that never sleeps nor slumbers and always has you in mind?

Can you fathom a bottomless ocean of Grace, Mercy and Kindness? Be mindful that grace is an extension of MY Love. Jesus was MY final answer to sin, so that you can be with ME, with no restrictions.

Ephesians 1:3-8
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. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.
