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.”
Freedom and fulfillment are the benefits of serving ME, the Most High. No other god can offer that. All other gods require a penance that leads to servitude, their illusions of liberty are lies.
In ME, the bond servant commits all to be freed. In the kingdom of darkness, what appears to be a liberation is sealed with an eternal yoke of bondage. I am the God of liberty, autonomy and sovereignty.
As you are being forced to bend and conform into what religion says you should be or what society says is acceptable. Are you becoming more like ME, is it in MY Image?
I AM the Author and Chief Architect of freedom. Freedom is the power to think, speak and act. I designed you for freedom, following another is captivity. Accept the freedom that is eternal.
A slave is not a permanent member of the family, but a son is part of the family forever. So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.
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.
Forgiveness is your due benevolence as a believer. When you can look past an offense, this can be the best and most authentic witness for ME. To love in the place of fear, to pray for those who despitefully use you.
Forgiving is not forgetting, it is refusing to allow the pain to become perpetual. It is releasing your right to retaliate. It is an active mandate of your will to empathize on another’s behalf.
Forgiveness is the key component of repentance. The forgiveness that you receive is in direct proportion to the forgiveness that you give. The clemency that you bestowed on others is accounted for, then drawn on, when it is you standing in the way of judgment.
Embrace forgiveness, because it is the essence of Christ and the purpose for the cross. The Lamb of God was the ultimate sacrifice and atonement for sin, the concluding Passover for mankind. Forgiveness is essential to salvation.
“Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
Consider your words and all the power they possess. Life and death are there. Hurt and healing are there. Pain and Praise are also there. Will you speak out of how you feel or will your values override your emotions?
Serve ME now, obey ME now, walk with ME now. The kingdom of heaven is at hand. The inaction stems from your priorities, your pride and what can be done in your own strength, versus what I can do in you.
In your weakness I AM strong, but pride has silenced your ability to request help. Looking strong is not the same as being strong. What is seen as strong in this worldly realm, is a weakness in the heavenly realms.
There needs to be a paradigm shift in your mind, moving from a fear based thinking to a faith based thought process. Take a tally of what fear has cost you, in relationships, in opportunities and in evaluating your personal value & worth.
2 Corinthians 12:9
But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest on me
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
You are feeling overwhelmed like you are drowning. It is hard to focus and you shift from task to task. Why, because you have stopped following the cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night. The confusion is in your partial obedience.
Trust ME. The next season will be better. I have something amazing for you there. With ME, there is only increase, I multiply. So do not fear the change I AM directing you to make. A new vision comes with new provisions.
Make the shift quickly now that you know it is my will. Place all of your energy into what is next. Be 100% in the new, let the old pass away. Leave it all behind. Embrace what already existed, but was unseen, The New.
The anxiety is normal, but it is critical that you move. Focus less on what you may lose, but on what the obedience gains. With ME, even what seems like subtraction is an addition. Why, because we are building in the unseen.
2 Corinthians 4:18
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
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.
I AM covering you, do not be so concerned with making a mistake. I will cover those too. I have called you to MYSELF and not to being perfect. As you enter into MY presence, glory and intoxicating love, I will do the perfecting.
Consider the hell your bloodline has gone through. I AM delivering you to deliver them. To break a generational curse, to take what the enemy stole and make it Holy. To purify the pains by changing the trajectory of your entire family.
As a woman experiences the pain of birth, her body is misshaped and bruised. As the bones around the birth canal are forced to expand, the breath deepens, the cervix and pupils dilate, the blood pressure elevates all culminating, to produce life.
Though it is a season of discomfort, physical trauma and a near death experience. The beauty of the new born baby makes the travail, worthwhile. To hold new life in your arms overshadows the hurts and then the prize makes the process worthwhile.
“Whenever a woman is in labor she has pain, because her hour has come; but when she gives birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy that a child has been born into the world.
You have done more than most and this is a good thing, but have you done explicitly, what I have asked. Your calling is designed for you and no other. I make all things on purpose and for purpose, there are no accidents.
It is fine to simply be who I made you to be and how I have made you is perfect. My people perish for a lack of knowledge of who they are. Independence of thought and identity can only come through ME.
Men have spent multiple lifetimes to find fulfillment outside of ME. It is there choice and an act of their will, but it is futile. If you are looking for a way, consult the Way Maker. All that I have is Good and perfect.
Be wise and stop kicking against the pricks. You are a custom made soul and there is so much, that I have for you. Be honest, your ways of doing things is not working. Forgive yourself, repent and rejoin the FATHER.
As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.”
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.
What is the source? Ask this question of all you are consuming physically, mentally and spiritually. Good things can come from a corrupt source for a season, but eventually, the source and what comes from it, will align.
There is much being said and plenty to be heard. There is truth in it, but the foundation is not truth. The truth is like a garnish, with the main part of the dish a lie. A truth and a lie cannot coexist, it must be one or the other.
Consider your heart, why are you comfortable with partial truths. What have you done or are doing, that misinformation has become attractive? You can build with exaggeration, but the edifice will fall.
You are MY wise and faithful steward, you are anointed and capable in discerning the adversary’s propaganda. MY very nature is wisdom, knowledge and understanding. They are indwelled in ME and I AM indwelled in you.
By wisdom the LORD founded the earth; by understanding he created the heavens. By his knowledge the deep fountains of the earth burst forth, and the dew settles beneath the night sky.
Who are you? Not what others have said or what roles you play, but how are you uniquely impacting the world? Identity can only be found in me. The creations meaning is found in the mind of the creator.
You are looking for identity in all the wrong environments. It is impossible to gain clarity, from people unclear in themselves. The blind cannot lead the blind. Who you are becomes clear when, who you are ‘not’ is extinguished.
Your identity has at least three components: purpose, calling and spiritual gifting. The power of an identified soul is exemplified when all three are clear and in alignment. The purpose is why you exist, the calling is the role you exist in and the spiritual gifting is what you exist to do.
Identity awareness is a threat to the evil one. Since the day you were born confusion has sought to corrupt what God made. Establishing your identity will be a fight fought on two fronts, the flesh and the spirit. Your success in both realms will determine your level of awareness and the level of anointing.
From now on you will be called Israel, because you have fought with God and with men and have won.
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.
You will soon be more wise, than some who have advised you. It will be vital that you refuse to be offended, if your promotion is not celebrated. Some will seek to limit you, to who you once were.
This next season is yours. You will walk into a series of predestined moments. If you make a mistake, do not wallow in it or allow the regrets to fester. Forgive yourself and determine to do better.
There are precious souls lacking, because you were not in position. All the benchmarks your father failed to achieve and all the blessings your mother refused to accept, are laid up dormant and awaiting your faith, to be activated.
Prepare yourself to be overwhelmed with HIS goodness. To be used in a mighty way, not for your glory, but for HIS Glory. You are a living showpiece signifying what a changed heart looks like.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.
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.
It is important that you continue to press hard and with divine strategy, this is a must. Do not forsake the dream. Trust what I have told you. Trust what you see, when your eyes are closed.
People may not believe in you, but they are not chosen, I selected you. The Dream is in you, but from ME and it is your assignment, to complete, in the earth. We will have dominion together.
In this dominion will be your highest fulfillment. It will provide you stability, from the mental to the financial. It will be a source of frustration, but your greatest peace, the pain and purpose are integral.
Press on, beyond what you see and beyond how you are feeling. What you are commissioned to say are more than mere words, your task is urgent, it is to speak LIFE. Your words produce life.
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
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.
It will get better and at MY appointments, things will change. This situation is not forever and you will survive. The struggle is immense, though it is not the end of your story, but the beginning.
Be faithful to your purposes and know that your gifts are entrusted within you, to accomplish a very specific goal. Consider this, the predestined assignment is the guarantor for your life.
I have never failed and have never been wrong. MY intentions are always fulfilled, so cast your lots on ME and bet on the Heavens. Anything that is infallible is derived from ME and is eternally infallible.
You are MY infallible plan and MY system to restore the world. A hope for every soul, the tangible, touchable earthly showing of MY regenerative plan. Remain in ME and I will remain in you.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing
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.
What is your heart searching for? Is it peace, affirmation or affection? Neither are wrong or even bad, in perspective. If balanced and weighed against MY will, then each is justified.
However, when a natural desire overrides your spirit. When a gift becomes greater than the gift, giving God. You are now choosing another god. Be careful, many a man has been overcome by his ambitions.
Better men have fallen, what are you doing to safeguard your heart? Pride says, I have it under control, no need to worry. You and pride are both fools. When souls are on the line, you must take every thought captive.
Even the thought, behind each string of thoughts. Whose righteousness do you have, does it come from ME or is it self appointed and self secured. Two have gone before you on the same path, Lucifer and Job. O’ King find your glory, search for MY heart.
It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out.
When you move into position, the anointing will fall. When you fully commit, then the resources will be made available. It is all about timing, trust and obedience. Even though you do not see it now.
What I AM asking you to do is going to be difficult, but it will not be impossible. It will be extremely tiring, but it will not deplete you. It will be a hard thing, but it will be worthwhile.
I have placed a covenant within you, a covenant within MY people and a covenant within the earth, each is connected and is dependent on the others. A triple braided cord is not easily broken.
Let go of everything you do not understand. I need you to obey, one command at a time. Once you finish the one, come back for another and another. Over time, you and I together will build a Holy confidence.
Though one person may be overpowered by another, two people can resist one opponent. A triple-braided rope is not easily broken.
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.
The choice to worship or worry, it is yours. You can raise your hands in surrender, to the process or the defeat. The differences between hope and hopelessness are a matter of faith.
What you accept as the truth, becomes your truth, though it be a lie. When lies become standards, it is like building a house on sand. The edifice is built quickly and rests on nothing.
Your value systems are moved by the wind, the rain and the storms. Nothing is secure, because elements change you, causing you to live from storm to storm, from lie to lie and from calamity to calamity.
Take up thy bed and walk, play cripple no longer. You are strong and very capable, stop living under a lie, you are powerful. Stand up straight and start showing the world, how greatly, I have made you.
“The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.”
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.
Consider what you have been through. Remember that many others have tried and failed where you are standing strong. Perhaps not glamorous, but you are still standing and the experience has made you fortified.
Foundations and foundational people are rarely seen or spoken of. Yet upon them, the weight of a structure, a civilized society and the kingdoms of this world, rest. Foundations are key.
Be a foundational spouse, a foundational parent and a foundational citizen. Let your deals be honorable and secured with the bond of your word. Do the righteous thing, even when righteousness costs you more.
The world should know, you are mine, because of your unparalleled integrity. You are marked with a reputation of honesty, that precedes you. Always be fair, faithful and remain a foundational aspect of MY kingdom.
“When the storms of life come, the wicked are whirled away, but the godly have a lasting foundation.”
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 can intervene by solving your issues, instantly or you can have the victory through MY process. Both are miracles, but going through the process produces a different type of spoil, a more mature mental edge.
Praying away the pain may not be MY will, because some pain cannot be mitigated, it must be experienced with eyes wide open. If you deny the pain, then you deny the power, it produces.
Embrace the rejection, in the rejection is MY perfection, being ostracized can lead to an exclusivity with ME, that the path of least resistance, cannot. This undermines the infection of man’s affirmations.
Start rooting for the underdog, because his weakness is MY strength. Look for others that society has written off and there you will find MY sons and daughters. What the world meant for evil, I have taken and made for good.
Then the Jews stirred up the influential religious women and the leaders of the city, and they incited a mob against Paul and Barnabas and ran them out of town. So they shook the dust from their feet as a sign of rejection and went to the town of Iconium. And the believers were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.
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.’
