Let faith trump your frustration at the seeming lack of results.  Just because you do not see according to your definition of results, does not mean that influence and fruit have not been born.  Faith believes that there is fruit even when the tree looks bare.  It is good to reevaluate, but don’t get so caught up in your evaluations that your faith wanes.  Reevaluate and reprioritize, but also reposition yourself in faith and wait. Don’t jump a ship that isn’t sinking, especially when I am in the boat, says the Lord.  James 5:7-8, “So, brothers, be patient until the Lord returns.  See how the farmer waits for the precious “fruit of the earth” – he is patient over it until it receives the fall and the spring rains.  You, too, be patient; keep up your courage; for the Lord’s return is near.”

It is imperative that you develop your spiritual senses – sight, hearing, touch, balance.  See what I am doing; receive revelation and prophecy into your own situations and communities.  Increase your faith by hearing what I am saying in My Word and act upon it.  Learn what it means to touch the hearts of those around you, and in so doing touch Mine. Allow for balance in your life, recognizing you are human.  All that I have created was designed to balance and complement – male and female, family and career, laughter and weeping, action and rest.  Just as your natural senses define the physical, so your spiritual senses will bring into focus the spiritual realm and you will be able to walk out your destiny with greater clarity. Heb. 5:14, “Solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties have been trained by continuous exercise to distinguish good from evil.”

Stand.  No matter what, choose to stand.  Resist what the enemy is attempting to do in your life.  Be found with your armor on, refusing to give an inch. Wield the sword of My Spirit – My Word – with such ferocity that it cannot become separated from you.  Cover yourself daily in the revelation of My salvation, and walk in peace.  Worship in the midst of it all; praise through the pain of the hour, for I am with you, guiding you in this new phase of battle to bring you out to a greater place of victory, says the Lord.  Eph. 6:13-14a, “So take up every piece of war equipment God provides, so that when the evil day comes, you will be able to resist; and when the battle is won, you will still be standing.  Therefore, stand!”

I have declared victory for you in this season.  Before you were born, I singled you out for a divine purpose.  There have been things that have prevented you and held you back from stepping into the fullness of all that I have written for you, but no more.  Cooperate with My Spirit in attaining the victory I have given you.  Participate in the freedom I have provided you.  Choose to consciously shake off the chains that still keep you bound.  It’s time flex the spiritual muscle you’ve developed.  And this will come to pass, because My Father, My Spirit, and My Word have ordained it for your benefit.  I John 5:7, “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are One.”  2 Cor. 3:17-18, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.  And we all, who with unveiled faces reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”

Be careful that you do not act impulsively on the urgency in your heart at this time.  When you discern an urgency in your heart, pray and seek Me, then wait.  Urgency of spirit requires patience to hear and then, if necessary, act.  If you do not wait, your haste can exacerbate situations for which you were concerned in the first place. Learn what it means that the effectual fervent prayer avails much – not insistent interference.  Not everything is yours to fix, but it is yours to pray for without ceasing until My answer is made manifest.  Don’t try to get ahead of Me.  Trust Me to act in response to your prayers – even the ones that weigh heavy on your heart, and as you do, your burden will once more be made light.  Is. 64:4, “You work for him who waits for You.”  James 5:16, “The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.”  Matt. 11:28, “Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

11/10/2016 Daily Word

I have granted you supernatural momentum in the heavenly realm.  You must now learn to stay ahead by walking not as you see, but as you discern according to My Spirit.  As you discern, you must act.  Faith without works is dead.  A head start is worth nothing if you choose to stop a few feet from the starting line.  Don’t give place to the enemy, but keep your eyes firmly ahead on the finish line.  Don’t look to the left or the right to ascertain where you are according to the flesh, but keep your eyes on Me and as you do, My Spirit will make you aware of all that is necessary for you to move ahead.  Encourage yourself that mountains are being made low as you run forward to fulfill the vision, says the Lord, for I have gone before you.   Is. 45:2, “I will go before you and make the rough places smooth; I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through their iron bars.  I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden wealth of secret places, so that you may know that it is I, the LORD, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.”

11/9/2016 Daily Word

Are not My thoughts higher than your thoughts; My wisdom greater than yours?  Am I not the One who sustained a man in a fish and fed five thousand from a fish?  Why then do you question what I can accomplish?  With Me nothing is impossible!  Without Me nothing is possible!  Remember that I am the vine, you are the branches.  Why then do you say in your heart you do not prosper?  You are united in Me and in Me is all that is necessary for life.  In Me is every possibility and its fulfillment – in Me is the “yes,” and “amen,” says the Lord!  Begin to speak to your mountain, and I will see it removed!  Is. 55:8-11, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways, says ADONAI.  As high as the sky is above the earth are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.  For just as rain and snow fall from the sky and do not return there, but water the earth, causing it to bud and produce, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater; so is My Word that goes out from My mouth – it will not return to Me unfulfilled; but it will accomplish what I intend, and cause to succeed what I sent it to do.”

11/8/2016 Daily Word

Look to Me when you are feeling overwhelmed.  I am your place of safety and your refuge – it is in My presence that you are to live.  All flesh withers and fades, but I remain forever.  I am your constant; your true north.  Focus on what I am doing, not on the actions of man.  I will be glorified and My Word will accomplish what I’ve sent it to do.  Don’t be anxious, do not despair, for I have overcome all that is in and of the world. I Pt. 1:23-24, “You have been born again not from some seed that will decay, but from one that cannot decay, through the living Word of God that lasts forever.  For all humanity is like grass, all its glory is like a wildflower – the grass withers, and the flower falls off; but the Word of the LORD lasts forever.”

Even in the midst of the storm, I am fulfilling My purpose in you.  When your vision is clouded, trust that I can and will bring you to a place of clarity.  Did I not promise to give wisdom to those that would ask?  Am I not the First and the Last; your Beginning and End; the Truth? Vision becomes hazy when you stare too long at a thing.  Rather than focusing on the problem, bring your concerns directly to Me and allow Me to reveal My perspective.  It is always clear and concise, providing the obvious answer that will bring forth faith and divine strength to stay the course, no matter the weather.  Ps. 57:1-2,” Show me favor, God, show me favor; for in You I have taken refuge.  Yes, I will find refuge in the shadow of your wings until the storms have passed.  I call to God, the Most High, to God, who is accomplishing His purpose for me.”

11/4/2016 Daily Word

There are times that I withhold a temporal good for which you’ve asked, My child, in order that I may accomplish an eternal work in you.  You are not being punished, you are growing.  I am facilitating the expansion of your faith.  Faith doesn’t take root and grow in the immediate visual, it takes its root and grows in the eternal unseen.  I am not saying “No,” but I am saying, “Not yet.” Your faith is being exercised so that you will grow in both character and faithfully trust even in the midst of difficult situations.  Remember though, that I have promised never to leave you, and that I have always rewarded those who have placed their trust in Me.  In due time all these things will be added to you.  Heb. 11:1,6, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen…And without faith, it is impossible to be well pleasing to God, because whoever approaches Him must trust that He does exist and that He becomes a Rewarder to those who seek Him out.”
