Position yourself where you know I want you now, and I will make the necessary adjustments as your future unfolds before you.  Where you position yourself today will enable you to easily transition into tomorrow.  Everything is line upon line, precept upon precept, and you must start with where you are now.  I will get you from here to there, just make a conscious decision to align yourself with My plans and purposes in this moment, and then learn what it means to have joy in the journey.  Ps. 143:8, “Make me hear of Your love in the morning, because I rely on You.  Make me know the way I should walk, because I entrust myself to You.”

You are not alone, and you have not been abandoned.  Even when you ran from Me, I was the persistent ever-present help you needed.  I know the anguish you feel at the thought of being alone – I felt it on the cross as I cried out for the One from whom I had never been separated.  I AM the One who sustains you, guides you, completes you, and I have never and won’t ever forsake you.  I am by your side, even now, whispering for you to come closer, so that never again will you feel discarded and cast-off, but know beyond a doubt that your life is hidden in Mine, and that yours is a sacred, purposeful life.  Ps. 16:8-11, “I always set ADONAI before me; with Him at my right hand, I can never be moved; so my heart is glad, my glory rejoices, and my body too rests in safety; for You will not abandon me to Sh’ol, You will not let your faithful one see the Abyss.  You make me know the path of life; in Your presence is unbounded joy, in your right hand eternal delight.”

5/15/2017 Daily Word

You must let go of the past – past perceptions, past disappointments, past mindsets.  Today is a new day, and in order to move forward you must break free of what has held you captive.  There are things dead that are clinging to you, creating a stench because you have refused to bury it. It is affecting your ability to trust Me and to love your neighbor. My Child, wash yourself with My Word.  Renew your mind, and allow Me to lead you into a place of victory.  Refuse to camp in the place of your former captivity, and step forward into the now where a new beginning awaits you.  Ps. 51:9-15, “Sprinkle me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.  Let me hear the sound of joy and gladness, so that the bones You crushed can rejoice.  Turn away Your face from my sins, and blot out all my crimes.  Create in me a clean heart, God; renew in me a resolute spirit.  Don’t thrust me away from Your presence, don’t take Your Holy Spirit from me.  Restore my joy in Your salvation, and let a willing spirit uphold me.  Then I will teach the wicked Your ways, and sinners will return to You.”

5/12/2017 Daily Word

Love, abiding and expansive, is what I hold in My heart for you.  Never for one moment have I questioned My decision to redeem you, heal you, sanctify and justify you.  You are My child!  As a mother will fight for her offspring, so I will fight for you.  Though the enemy attempt to thwart you and keep you from the plans and purposes that I have destined for you from the foundations of the world, I have kept you safely cradled in My arms, close to My heart.  I hear your every cry, rejoice in every triumph, and delight in your idiosyncrasies.  You are My image and I celebrate to see Myself reflected in you.  Is. 49:15-16, “Can a woman forget her child at the breast, not show pity on the child of her womb?  Even if these were to forget, I would not forget you.  I have engraved you on the palms of My hands, your walls are always before Me.”

5/11/2017 Daily Word

Exercise self-control in everything you do.  Of all the fruits born of My Spirit, this is the most noticeable to others when it is lacking.  It manifests itself in your words, actions, and habits.  Learn the value of disciplining yourself and reining in the impulsivity that can get you into trouble both in the natural and spiritually.  It is the one lacking control who will easily succumb to the temptations of the enemy.  Now is the time to curb your emotions and fleshly desires, and focus your mind on the work I have for you.  Remember, My Spirit is ever present to assist you and strengthen you in your resolve.  I Pt. 1:13-15, “Therefore, get your minds ready for work, keep yourselves under control, and fix your hopes fully on the gift you will receive when Jesus Christ is revealed.  As people who obey God, do not let yourselves be shaped by the evil desires you used to have when you were still ignorant.  On the contrary, following the Holy One who called you, become holy yourselves in your entire way of life.”

5/10/2017 Daily Word

Choose to be malleable and bend with the movement of My Spirit.  Don’t allow the traditions of men and your own preferences to make you rigid, for as the day approaches, I desire people that are pliable, that will be shaped by My hands.  My Spirit is moving, and you must move with Him if you are to accomplish the plans and purposes of My heart.  Flexibility and instant obedience to the voice of My Spirit is what I am requiring of you.  John 3:8, “The wind blows where it wants to go, and you hear its sound, but you don’t know where it comes from or where it’s going.  That’s how it is with everyone who has been born from the Spirit.”

5/9/2017 Daily Word

Rest securely in My peace, and gather strength in Me.  As you journey on the path I have laid out for you, know that I will be your refuge, your safe place, your harbor; and when all around you seems dark, I am the Light burning brightly to illuminate your path.  It is My blessing to you, My child, that no matter where you go, you will never be far from home or the embrace of your loving Father, for your home is in My heart and you are forever engraved on the palm of My hand.  Ps. 84:4-5, “As the sparrow finds herself a home and the swallow her nest, where she lays her young, so my resting-place is by Your altars, O Lord of Hosts, my King and my God.  How happy are those who live in Your house; they never cease to praise You!”

5/8/2017 Daily Word

Ask of Me – anything. Sometimes you refuse to ask because you consider your misery as light and small compared to the issues of the world, but I delight in being included in what you consider commonplace.  To be asked the simple (often the location of car keys) and then thanked from a heart of sincere gratitude brings Me joy, for I take great pleasure in being a part of My Children’s lives – both the great and the small.  To converse with you during the course of the routine, sharing your struggles and triumphs is My privilege as your Father. As you learn entwine your life with Mine and wait for My answer in the small, it will become second nature to do so with the larger issues, and you will see that your faith in Me has grown in the field of the mundane, preparing you for the mountains of adversity that all of My Children must climb.  I Chron. 16:8-11, “Give thanks to ADONAI!  Call on His Name!  Make His deeds known among the peoples.  Sing to Him, sing praises to Him!  Talk about all His wonders.  Glory in His holy name; let those seeking ADONAI have joyful hearts.  Seek ADONAI and His strength; always seek His presence.”

5/5/2017 Daily Word

To allow My peace to guard your heart is to acknowledge that in everything I am with you and that you trust Me to perform My Word in every area of your life.  Peace is the outgrowth of walking according to My Spirit, rather than the flesh.  Today, as you set your heart and mind on Me, allow My peace to saturate your being, and as you go forth, speak peace into the situations and circumstances that you encounter.  Is. 26:3-4, “A person whose desire rests on you, You preserve in perfect peace, because he trusts You.  Trust in the ADONAI forever, because Yah ADONAI is a Rock of Ages.”

5/4/2017 Daily Word

I AM God!  Am I not the One who spoke the world into existence; the sacrificial One who lay down My life for My wayward sons and daughters, invading the gates of Hell; the One who even now pursues the lost, who are wandering blind in the realm of darkness?  Will I not also respond to the supplication and intercession of My people who make up the nations?  Yes, I will do so, and even more.  The Word has gone forth, and it will not be rescinded – ask of Me and I will give the nations as your inheritance.  Ask, My children, for nothing is too difficult for Me.  I have promised to pour out My Spirit on all flesh, and that includes where you are at.  My Spirit will not be localized, but will be poured out upon all of My children everywhere who will sincerely consecrate themselves to My divine purposes and repent.  Joel 2:23-24, “Be glad people of Zion! Rejoice in the LORD your God!  For He is giving you the right amount of rain in the fall, He makes the rain come down for you, the fall and spring rains – that is what He does first.  Then the floors will be full of grain and the vats overflow with wine and olive oil.”
