What can you put to death within yourself that will bring life to others?  As surely as My death and resurrection were a gift of redemption to mankind, dying to yourself is a gift to those around you.  I willingly chose to go to the cross, and you must as well.  Know, too, that for those who will die to self, a resurrection of new life will take place that will allow those around you to drink of My life in you. The life of the Spirit is a life of selfless service to My Kingdom that draws people unto Myself as others see resurrection power emanating forth from your spirit naturally and consistently.  It is not something that can be coerced once a year in remembrance, but an ongoing lifestyle of the overcomer! Matt. 16:24, “Then Jesus said unto His disciples, ‘If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”

The reach of My Spirit knows no boundaries except in a heart not fully surrendered to Me.  It is My desire to share the mystery of Myself with you, to enter into an intimacy that transcends what you currently know, but you must surrender all of yourself to Me.  Would you withhold yourself from the one you love?  Would you give precedence to others over your beloved?  No.  Even so, I must be more to you.  To enter My chamber, you must give of yourself freely and fully, willingly exposing all that is you, and in exchange I will reveal the wonders of My own heart towards you.  Your heart is safe with Me.  Jer. 31:3, “From a distance the LORD appeared to me, [saying,] ‘I love you with an everlasting love; this is why in My grace I draw you to Me.” Song of Songs 2:4, “He brought me to His banqueting table, and His banner over me was love.”

I have set you free to walk in abundance of life.  It is your decision whether or not to do so.  The enemy may bring to your remembrance the past, and circumstances may not be ideal, but you must choose not to allow stress to overtake you.  Stress weighs down your spirit and recycles the problem, challenge, or unexpected in your mind with alternative possibilities.  This prevents forward movement. Take up what would keep you in bed – one thing at a time – and walk towards Me with the assurance that I am your ever present help in times of trouble.  Walk forward into life, and that more abundantly.  John 5:6, 8, “Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, ‘Do you want to be made well?’…Jesus said to him, ‘Rise, take up your bed and walk.’”

My strength is made perfect in your weakness.  Know that as you stand in My strength, your weakness will dissipate and become nothing in My presence.  My strength to overcome will become your strength.  As we walk in intimate oneness, you will take on My characteristics, and you will be saturated by who I AM.  I AM love, acceptance, provision, healing.  Rest confidently in Me, knowing that in our union every broken area of your life is made whole, and your victory is assured.  John 16:33, “I have said these things to you so that, united with Me, you may have peace.  In the world, you have troubles.  But be brave!  I have conquered the world!”

Your past is redeemed!  No longer are you chained emotionally, spiritually, or physically to your past.  The enemy has attempted to keep you there to prevent you from being effective in My Kingdom, but I have cut the cord and released you to step freely into the future I have prepared for you.  Do not look back at the place of your sin and captivity!  Only look forward into the destiny I have for you.  Freely I have given to you, freely step forth into victory!  Gen. 19:17, “When they had brought them out, he said, ‘Flee for your life!  Don’t look behind you, and don’t stop anywhere in the plain, but escape to the hills!  Otherwise, you will be swept away.’”

4/7/2017 Daily Word

The point is not for the enemy to bring you to My attention – he does that with everyone.  Your goal should be to live your life in such a way that I am bringing you to the enemy’s attention as one of My Overcomers!  When the enemy attempts to bring incredible chaos and destruction, know that it is because he has noticed you are living in the abundance of life I’ve granted you, and that you are continually walking in victory – a constant testimony to Me for the world to see.  Job 2:3, “ADONAI asked the Adversary, ‘Did you notice My servant Job, that there’s no one like him on earth, a blameless and upright man who fears God and shuns evil, and that he still holds on to his integrity, even though you provoked me against him to destroy him for no reason?’”

4/6/2017 Daily Word

Seek to walk in holiness before Me.  I am your righteousness, but holiness is a choice.  Let your love for Me be the motivating factor of a life well lived, without blame and shame.  As My servant, Job, allow the struggles and attacks of the enemy to spur you to a greater understanding of My character and nature.  As you do, even the hosts of heaven will stand and take notice of My life-sustaining power in you. This is your testimony – that in all life throws at you, you neither sin nor cast blame on Me.  I Peter 3:11-12, “Whoever wants to love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit, turn from evil and do good, seek peace and chase after it.  For ADONAI keeps His eyes on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayers; but the face of ADONAI is against those who do evil things.”

4/5/2017 Daily Word

Arise, and sing, your deliverance has come!  Do you not see; do you not recognize the work of your Lord?  I have been at work on your behalf, and regardless of what you see there is a shift in your situation, there is a crumbling of barriers that will make way for your breakthrough!  Rejoice, and give praise to God, Most High, who has done these mighty things on your behalf!  The enemy is retreating even now, and your victory will be apparent to all!  Give praise, give praise, give praise, for your Blessed Redeemer has once again redeemed your life from destruction! Ps. 103:1-5, “Bless ADONAI, my soul!  Everything in me, bless His holy name!  Bless ADONAI, my soul, and forget none of His benefitsHe forgives all your offenses, He heals all your diseases, He redeems your life from the pit, He surrounds you with grace and compassion, He contents you with good as long as you live, so that your youth is renewed like an eagle’s.”

Do you feel imprisoned by circumstances beyond your control?  Know that the very situation that has held you captive, I will use to bring about deliverance not only in your life, but in the lives of others.  Surrender your own plans and dreams (that which is dear to you), and I will see that you are recompensed many times over that which you have given to Me. Wait for Me and learn to thrive in the place where you are, and I will bless you there, but I will also raise you up and bring you out in victory. In due time the dreams that have been held captive along with you will be released suddenly, and you will be brought out into a place of honor. Gen. 45:5, 7-8, “Don’t be sad that you sold me into slavery here or angry at yourselves, because it was God who sent me ahead of you to preserve life.  God sent me ahead of you to ensure that you will have descendants on the earth and to save your lives in a great deliverance.  So it was not you who sent me here, but God; and He has made me a father to Pharaoh, lord of all his household and ruler over the whole land of Egypt.”

4/3/2017 Daily Word

There are dreams held within your heart – dreams that I placed there.  You feel like they must be wishful thinking because so much time has passed, but know this:  I placed the dreams within you and I will cause them to come to pass in My way, in My time.  There were people I put in your path that you thought could help catapult your dream, but they have forgotten you. Don’t despair, for the very same people who forgot you are the same people I will cause to remember you and the dream I’ve placed within you will come to fruition unexpectedly, positioning you in a place far greater than you imagined for My purposes and for My glory, says the Lord.  Gen. 40,23, 41:9, “The chief cupbearer didn’t remember Joseph, but forgot him…then the chief cupbearer said to Pharaoh, ‘Today reminds me of something wherein I am at fault.’”
