#384 – A Yielded Vessel

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

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

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

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

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

#383 – Love Leads to Life

To listen is to love. To reserve judgment is to exemplify the person of Christ. Out of the concern in the heart, every mouth speaks. If you could take an unselfish moment to listen, then your answer will unfold.

The transformative knowledge of Christ is more than a head knowledge, that can be transmitted and received. It is also a heart knowledge, that gestates and incubates a living, breathing faith.

MY Word is sperm and your heart is the egg. As a seed fertilizes an egg, life is spontaneous and morphs the existence of both sperm & egg. The birth of a new hope, a new possibility and a fresh start is now a real and a tangible thing.

A listening ear leads to concern, that concern is a demonstration of love. A love that is first felt and then received. Love received within a heart fertilizes, a fertilized heart is rejuvenated and produces life. Listening leads to Love, Love leads to Life.

Mark 4:24
And he said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you. For to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.”

#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.

#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.

#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.

#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.

#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.”

#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.

#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

#358 – It is your time, too!

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

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

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

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

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

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

#348 – Giants in your Generation

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

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

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

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

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

#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.

#341 – I AM Fortifying

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

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

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

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

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

#340 – Stand in the Gap

When you see a weakness in another, this is a divine revelation. Though the knowledge be personally frustrating and a costly betrayal, it is part of the process. God is giving you special insight to intercede on their behalf.

The insight into your brothers weakness is a gift to demonstrate love and long-suffering. Should you exploit him, then it is your character on display. His infirmity, in confidence will expose your infirmities in public.

A gift makes room for you and with a gift comes responsibility. Your gift has an assignment and will always reflect the giver. Discernment is a gift, intuition is precious prophetic intel. How are you handling the gift of spiritual perception?

I have entrusted you with information about your brother, to help and not hurt, nor hinder. Your insight is strategic and with strategy, serve your brother. Stand in the gap until he is made whole. Intercede in the heavenly realms covering him with MY grace and mercy.

1 Peter 4:8-11
Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay. God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.

#339 – What you fear, fears ME

What you fear, fears ME and because you fear ME, it fears you. You are not fully aware of the power you possess. The power that courses through your veins is the substance that holds the stars in place and directs the seas to come so far.

There is life producing power in your mouth. You are capable, uniquely capable, but you have believed the worlds system, that says you are not. The enemy is convincing you of a past, that I have deliberately chosen to forget. Christ’s work on the cross, has removed the sin and has bridged the chasm between us.

I AM your God and you are my people, you are a joint heir with Christ. As you move to speak, know that you have the full backing of The Great I AM. You are moving not under your own authority, but under the strength and power of the maker of heaven and earth.

Each problem you face is MY problem, each obstacle you face is MY obstacle. Any enemy or weapon formed against you is MY enemy and the weapons formed are for ME. The problems, the obstacles and the enemies are for ME to address and not you.

Jeremiah 11:4
“If you obey me and do whatever I command you, then you will be my people, and I will be your God.”

#337 – Look for MY Peace

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

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

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

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

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

#336 – A Thing is either Right or Wrong

All that you are seeking is in your believing, it is in your belief system that faith lives. A man’s belief is sacred and is the covenant between one’s Soul and one’s Spirit. What you believe is who you are!

Whether it be righteous or wrong headed this is your choice. The convenience of truth is a myth, a thing is either right or wrong. You will eventually answer to ME, the permissions of the culture and social statuses have no standing in MY Kingdom.

What you will believe, I shall add MY belief to it. Should you say no, I will add MY no, but should you say yes, I will add MY yes. What you choose to believe is different, when it is MY word. Your belief in MY Word is the mixing of your will, with MY blood, this is an impenetrable force.

A force that makes the devil tremble. A force that has set captives free, A force that holds healing and sets miracles ablaze. A force that restores man to his rightful place, the heir of this world.

Romans 4:13-16
For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith. For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. For the law brings wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression. That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring—not only to the adherent of the law but also to the one who shares the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all.

#335 – God’s Ordained Partnerships

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

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

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

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

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

#334 – Memorize MY Voice

You have heard from many people high and low about your situation. The information has been good and from good people, but what they have said is not GOD. This situation was called upon well before your existence and this earth.

This situation is about you hearing from ME directly, with no buffers or interpretations, that you may know and understand MY specific voice. So that MY voice can be clear and distinct in your heart and mind.

Be sure to memorize MY voice in the offseason, because when the season of warfare comes. It will be hard to distinguish God’s voice from Man’s voice. I need you to know MY voice.

There is a trying time coming, a season of assault and attack against you, your health, your family and your character. You will survive by the sustenance of MY very voice. Your way of escape is in the utterances of MY mouth.

John 10:2-4
But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.

#333 – The Battle is for Your Heart

The pressure to conform to the current thinking and the culture of popularity is constant. It is designed to replace your value system and relationship with ME. Compromise is a slow moving snake and once you become aware of the threat, it has overtaken you.

The battle is for your heart and the battleground is your mind. What you treasure, indicates what is valued in your heart and soul. Your mouth has said Peace, but your heart has said war. War is what you will have.

I AM the Supreme Eternal God of all. What you truly think, I know and how you really feel is evident to ME. Nothing can be hidden from ME, every emotion and every desire is fully known. I know who you are.

Abraham doubted ME, yet became the father of faith. Moses killed a man, yet be became the deliverer of many men. David was an adulterous King, yet he was a man after MY Own Heart. I know who you have been and I know who you will be.

Acts 13:22
But God removed Saul and replaced him with David, a man about whom God said, ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart. He will do everything I want him to do.

#332 – You Have Permission

MY brilliance in you is not conditional, it does not depend on the circumstances in the world. What I have placed in you cannot be denied, cannot be destroyed and cannot be reversed. As I AM permanent, what I placed in you is permanent.

What your hands touch and your mind can conceive, through your intimacy with ME, will work. Stop questioning who you are, you are MINE. All that is subject to ME is subject to you and any place a soul can exist is subject to ME.

You are asking the world to verify you, to confirm you and to give you purpose. It is not capable. What the world gives is temporarily yours and can be taken away. What I give is permanent and what I bestow is eternal.

I function and flow through perfection. What I make and what I form becomes the standard by which anything perfect is measured. With patience, precision and power I have made you. You have permission to move and produce in perfect dominion.

Ephesians‬ ‭2:10‬
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

#330 – I Entrust the Hearts

You have been invited into MY Glory. To regard yourselves higher in anyway is wrong and based on weakness, not strength. Through ME all things and all people were made. Serve who and where I tell you to serve.

I have given you a gift to serve them and not the power to judge them. Have you forgotten, not long ago, it was you that needed help and a sympathetic ear? Give to MY children the best of who you are and the highest regard.

I entrust the hearts of men to your bosom. Placing the most important things to ME in your care. Handle MY sons and daughters with dignity and honor. Look past the outsides and focus on the ME, in them. Find the light in their souls and add to it.

This is the great commission, LOVE. They have endured all the judgements one can muster. I have placed in you peace, compassion and mercy for others. You are MY ambassadors and the earthly representatives of MY Heavenly Throne.

1 Timothy 1:15-17
Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the worst. But for this very reason I was shown mercy, so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display His perfect patience as an example to those who would believe in Him for eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

#329 – You Carry MY very Presence

Let it flow, believe in the God, that is in you. What you have in you is incredible and remarkable, not because of your efforts, but MY own. Wherever you go, it will be blessed, because I have sent you. You carry MY very presence and anointing in you.

This is your purpose, to be MY light in the world, to bear the light, I have imparted in you. To love them through understanding and kindness. The Prince of this World will be defeated, by Faith, Hope and Love. These are your greatest weapons in spiritual warfare.

I created the human heart after MY Own. It is fueled by peace and not fear. The heart is not designed for excessive darkness, depression or defeat. The heart was created by Love, is maintained with Love and designed to store Love. Without Love the human heart dies.

Give that Love to the world and you will be in demand, you will fulfill purpose. The answer to every question is love. You are a solution, ready to be found. Remain loving, full of hope and opportunity will find you. Dedicate yourself to being a light and purpose will be come clear.

1 Corinthians 13:13
Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

#328 – Accept the Power Within

The circumstances can be changed and a metamorphosis can occur by your hand. What has been, can be made new. The status of your family can be shifted and the current reality can be dramatically changed, with effort.

The enemy seeks to take your Hope, when Hope is gone actions are thwarted. His goal is to convince you, that you do not matter and therefore your work, does not matter. This is the original lie, to cause men to disbelieve the God in them.

Accept the power within, trust the internal mechanisms of God’s power. Your breath, your life and your spirit are all alive and activated by God’s presence. You are here on assignment and that assignment requires both vision and provision.

You do the work of diligently sowing righteousness: then the compassion, the fulfillment and the love are yours to harvest. The hard work is the heart work, to plow up the lies of the enemy and sow the seeds of what is good, what is upright and what is virtuous.

Hosea 10:12
I said, ‘Plant the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the LORD, that he may come and shower righteousness upon you.

#327 – The Desert is Finished

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

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

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

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

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

#326 – Every part of you is Holy

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

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

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

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

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

#325 – Authentic Authority

You are the light, that I AM sending into the world. If they do not see you, they may never see ME. What you say and do are crucial to the kingdom. Your yes must be yes and your no must to be no.

Your character must stand out from all others, because you are representing ME. Your words are MY words and your hands are MY hands. The help my people need is in hope, their healing will come from a renewed belief and renewed expectations.

This is your mission to inject MY eternal hope into every person and into every place, I send you. Like an archer with precise aim, disperse your arrows of hope into the atmosphere. Refill your quiver as fast and as frequently, as you can.

The world needs an authentic authority and humbled hearts full of love. The more intimate you are with ME, the more power, I can entrust with you. The adversary does not recognize titles or the accolades of men. He only acknowledges and submits to power from on high.

Matthew 5:14-16
You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead, they set it on a lampstand, 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.

#324 – Love, Listen and Lead

The hard thing is the better thing. I am asking you to love some people, that are hard to love. They are manipulating and usurious, but they are my sons and daughters. Will you love them despite them?

Will you take care of my sheep? In spite of their evil ways and the selfishness, I love them and they are still family. You are the light, that I have sent into their world and the only light they may see.

It is easy to cut them off, the hard thing is to love them through the character flaws. To be faithful, even when they are untrue and to treat them based on who they are versus how they behave.

Your assignment from on high is to love, to listen and to lead with patience. As Christ was misused, abused and lied about for a glorious hope. I am asking you to suffer for my sake and to stand in the gap for others.

1 Peter 2:19-21
For it is commendable if someone bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because they are conscious of God. But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.

#323 – Ask Now, Pray Now, Move Now

This is a unique season of action, what was placed on a shelf and tucked away is now ripe to emerge. The things you have delayed and denied to fully form are coming to fruition.

I am giving you a second chance to try a hard thing, again. This time it will be made easy. It will flow seamlessly and doors that were closed are now open. The harvest is yours for the taking.

As I troubled the waters of Bethesda, I am troubling the waters around your life, your relationships and your finances. What you longed for and dreamed to accomplish are within your grasp. Reach for it.

Move quickly and you will produce twice as much. Do what I have said and do it now. I am going to open a floodgate from your obedience. Ask now, pray now, move now and I will cause favor to swarm all around you, intoxicating you with MY Goodness.

Joshua 5:9-12
Then the LORD said to Joshua, “Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you.” So the place has been called Gilgal to this day. On the evening of the fourteenth day of the month, while camped at Gilgal on the plains of Jericho, the Israelites celebrated the Passover. The day after the Passover, that very day, they ate some of the produce of the land: unleavened bread and roasted grain. The manna stopped the day after they ate this food from the land; there was no longer any manna for the Israelites, but that year they ate the produce of Canaan.

#321 – Obedience is an Offering

The gift, bestowed upon you by God will open doors and give you an audience before great men. This means more than an opportunity to share your gift with the world. It means, what you have done in the secret place is now being rewarded.

It means the Creator can trust you with a gift and with the fulfillment of the gift. It is the perfect balance of faith and works. The gift has been entrusted in your care and you have been diligent to multiply it.

This is trusting God with your very life and believing in Him by believing in what he has created, you. To accept God at his word, especially concerning the plans, He has for you is worship.

Obedience is an offering to God. You believing and acting as you believe are a soothing aroma in the Lord’s nostrils. When faithfulness and obedience collide inside a human heart, the blessings flow uninterrupted.

Ezekiel 20:41
As a soothing aroma, I will accept you when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you from the lands where you are scattered; and I will prove Myself holy among you in the sight of the nations.

#319 – Build your house on ME

What you have learned in the valley, will sustain you in the mountain tops. What you learn in the darkness, makes way for the light. Human nature, due to Adam‘s mistake is easily corrupted, by power.

Seek power and you will have power, seek ME and you will have ALL Power. The power given by the evil one is real, but temporary. Build your house on ME the rock, what is real and what lasts is not built quickly, cheaply or on sand.

I AM the real authentic God, build with ME, in ME and on ME, building through ME is what establishes you. Any other builder is a counterfeiter and what is built is inferior. It will not last and it is guaranteed to fail.

The building blocks, that last, are only found in ME. What is sustainable and what endures season after season is in ME. Faith, Hope and Love will erect what confusion, depression and fear can not build.

1 Corinthians 13:12-13
Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

#318 – (Part 3) Rejection is your Protection

Consecration is to make or declare something sacred, to dedicate something to a divine purpose. Ordained to a specific office. Devoted to a particular purpose.

The isolation leads to insulation and the insulation leads to the consecration.
This is when you are now eligible to receive divine downloads. The creator can now be heard, because you are ready to hear.

The consecration is when you begin to clearly identify what your purpose on this planet is and why you were born in this era. Why you were born with this or that ethnicity and gender. As you are becoming more intimate with who you are, your calling becomes very clear. This is when your gifting become sharper and more precise, it is where you understand the difference between a gift, a talent and an ability.

The consecration is when you realize why the isolation and insulation were required, to produce the right environment for you to completely embrace the Why, The Who and What of your life. The Why is your purpose, The Who is your calling and the What is your gifting. Until those three are in alignment, the other components of what you are assigned to do, on this planet, will remain a mystery.

The goal is the have life and to have it more abundantly. To be fulfilled by fulfilling every assignment the creator has for us.

As a seed must go through a process to become a tree. It requires being buried and the seed must go through a process of breaking to accept the water and the light. We too can only mature through a process. The isolation is the burial and breaking, the insulation is the water and consecration is the light.

Psalm 118:22-24
The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone. This is from the LORD, and it is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day that the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

#317 – (Part 2) Rejection is your Protection

Once the isolation is embraced, a new normal becomes a reality, a metamorphosis occurs. The isolation that was once one sided becomes mutual, meaning that your ability to interact fully and influence them was taken away. You eventually accept the fact and begin to heal, because of your growth, the ingroup, looses its power over you. The person/group that isolated you, no longer has the ability to interact and influence you, either.

This metamorphosis results in insulation, you are now becoming self resilient and your own words and thoughts have a greater value in your world. You no longer need, what you once thought, you could not live without, the approval of others.

The insulation is were you begin trusting in you. New talents, abilities and skills will begin to emerge. You discover a world of possibilities in you. You begin to fall in love with you. You start to recognize your value and worth, you realized that you have something to offer the world.

The insulation is were you begin to trust in you. You are still very much aware of the pain from isolation, but you are learning so much about yourself, that the pain seems worth it, in a way. The isolators are no longer the Judases or the Benedict Arnolds from the Betrayer Hall of Fame, but they are actually key figures in your liberation. The ones that meant to harm you, were actually, conduits of the change, that has given you and entirely new perspective.

The insulation is where you realize that it is in your best interest to forgive them, to live and let live. It is where you become very aware of your own short comings and the times when it was you, doing the isolating. This is when you become comfortable in your own skin. A season in which, you understand that you are enough. You are valuable and you are worthy. Once you can forgive yourself and others, you are ready for the best phase, consecration.

Psalms 27:10
Even if my father and mother abandon me, the LORD will hold me close.

#316 – (Part 1) Rejection is your Protection

Have you ever been left out or excluded from something? Perhaps a group of friends or even family decide to exclude you in some way. The world can be a tough place, when yohu are being purposely ignored and left out.

Perhaps it is the rejection of a lover, a friend or even worse a parent, that has decided to turn their backs on you. No matter who you are, at some point, you have been deny access or entry to something.

Maybe, you got cut by the basketball team, or the volleyball team or you were not good enough to be apart of the group. It may have even been the cool kids table at school, the chess club or the PTA.

Somehow, you were seen, as not smart enough, tall enough, strong enough, pretty enough, wealthy enough, fast enough, worthy enough or even sharp enough. It is tough not being enough.

Then, what is perhaps even worse, are the comparisons. If only you were more like your brother or your sister. A teacher could have compared you to other students and treated you indifferently.

This pain of rejection is a universal experience, some react by retreating into themselves, others get angry, some internalize to a point of self harm. Some make the ultimate decision and choose to end it all, by embracing suicide.

I believe, there is an alternative view and it comes from seeing the whole movie, instead of focusing on one scene. When I was 15, I was able to better understand myself a 5. At 25, the 15 year old me made more sense. At 35, I had more clarity on what the 25 year old was doing wrong. At 45, I realized that all things are working together for my good.

All the pain was a process and the process leads to a perfecting and that perfecting leads to purpose. Nothing is arbitrary and nothing is by happenstance, it all points me directly toward the reasons, why I was born.

Each of us has a unique purpose, calling and gifting. It is a benefit of having breath in your body, you and I were born for a purpose. We have an assignment hardwired in our DNA and I must tell you a little known secret about you. Your DNA is perfect. It is flawless and it is perfect because of who designed it.

If we are now looking at the whole movie and not just one scene, we have to reevaluate, why bad things happen to us. Why is it that, as you are trying do the right thing and wrong things keep happening. The pains in life and the hardships are designed to reveal our character. To show us our blind spots, to show us, who we are now.

It takes pressure to reveal the flaws in your character, under the pressure of pain, anger and hurt the real you is revealed. This is where the real work can begin, if you can see the movie and not just the scene.

When you realize, that your purpose is protecting you, then each bump in the road can be seen in a different way.

You, at a point, understand that pain is not just hurtful, but it also gives clarity. The pain of rejection is more than hurt, though it does, deeply. It is the first step in the process of growth. Are you being buried to die or planted to grow? They both seem like the same thing, from the outside looking in, but there is a difference between a farmer’s prayer and the last rights.

The process of being ostracized and rejection is traumatic and life altering. This is isolation. You are placed in a situation, where you are tolerated and not celebrated. You are widely know, but not widely loved. A situation, where you are continually reminded, that you do not belong.

The isolation forces you to operate outside of family, social or business circles and to fend for yourself. This can feel like shame and embarrassment, even guilt. It is important to press forward despite the pain and use the isolation to re-evaluate who you are. Are you overly dependent on the approval of others?

The isolation is where some weaknesses will be revealed in your personality and overall character. What a man does in desperation and under pressure reveal who he is. This is the trying part of the process, can you overcome the offense? Are you going to languish in the, ‘what was’ or accept the, ‘hear and now’?

John 15:18-19
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.

#315 – Resilience is Built

Could the hard thing, that is before you, be MY will? Could it be MY hand that has led you to a dry place? The pressure reveals to the Master Craftsman were weaknesses are. Is your trial and current challenge MY doing?

When the catastrophe is designed for you it cannot be prayed away, it must be withstood. The storm is not happening to you, but it is happening for you. In the storm, a resilience is built that is unique to a storm experience.

I AM building you to have character and depth, not easily fooled or discouraged. A people with a road worthiness, that I have called to courageous and long suffering. I am raising a people, that are not fearful or afraid.

A shift must be made from victims, that move with the wind of trouble, to victorious representatives of the Kingdom. Believers that stand to face the enemy, wherever he manifests and boldly claim new territory.

Matthew 11:12
And from the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of the heavens is taken by violence and the violent seize it.
