6/30/2017 Daily Word

You cannot administrate every area of your life and the lives of others.  You must leave room for My Spirit to move, and give Me an opportunity to surprise you and others.  Guidance is necessary, but attempts to control people and outcomes are dangerous and displeasing to Me.  Choose to allow Me to have My way in your life and the lives of others.  I have never failed yet, and others are safe in My care.  Trust that I am able and willing to bring them through every trial with or without your input.  I Thess. 4:11, “And to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you.”

This is a time for building, not for tearing down.  Many of you have wept because you have poured your life into what I have asked of you and are experiencing tremendous resistance.  This resistance is not of Me, but a spirit of hindrance sent to oppose the building project I have given you.  You must not look at what is happening in the natural, but go forward in faith, knowing that I have declared this time of growth and what you build now will bring everlasting fruit into the Kingdom.  Let your fear be swallowed up in faith and continue.  Though it looks as if even the foundation may be lost, I declare that this is your time of expansion and growth, and I have rebuked the hindrance, that I may show Myself great on your behalf.  Continue building!  Neh. 4:9, “When our enemies heard that the plot was known to us, and God had foiled their plans, we all returned to the wall, everyone to his work.”

Let go.  Let go of what you clutch so tightly in your hands.  My Child, I have so much that I would give you and entrust to your care, but you are holding on to attitudes, relationships, and things that are preventing you from receiving all I have for you.  Much of what you hold have been in a state of decay for years because you cannot let go.  If you will listen, release, and step out in faith, I will grant revelation in your present and escort you into the future, carrying in your hands My glory. Prov. 4:25-27, “Let your eyes gaze straight ahead, fix your gaze on what lies in front of you.  Level the path for your feet, let all your ways be properly prepared; then deviate neither right nor left; and keep your foot far from evil.”

Your circumstances have led you into a desert place where all is dry and barren, and in the midst of this desert you have chosen to continue your delight of Me. Look!  Today, I am causing a spring to burst forth in the dry ground.  It will bubble forth into a stream creating a river which will revive your spirit.  I am causing trees of righteousness to encircle you, those that are in relationship with Me, to encourage you and to give you shade.  No longer will you feel parched and thirsty, but you will be saturated with My Spirit and your thirst quenched.  Today, I am causing your desert to be for you a valley of refreshment.  Because you have honored Me in the midst of your desert place, I will now honor you, creating an oasis to bring nourishment and strength and change the landscape of what this time has been.  Is. 41:18-20, “I will open up rivers on the barren hills and wells down in the broad valleys.  I will turn the desert into a lake and dry grounds into springs.  I will plant the desert with cedars, acacias, myrtles, and olive trees; In the ‘Aravah I will put cypresses together with elm trees and larches.  Then the people will see and know, together observe and understand that the hand of the Lord has done this, that the Holy One of Isra’el created it.”

6/26/2017 Daily Word

Life, abundant and triumphant, is what I have ordained for you.  I have called you to be victorious over this battle that you’ve been waging, and life is available to you, but you must choose it daily.  You cannot vacillate between life and death; you much choose decisively and then walk in it, despite what you see in the natural.  Be encouraged, for as you make the conscious decision to walk in the life that I have provided, heaven’s armies stand prepared and ready to back you up.  You must resist the enemy’s voice that speaks death into your body, soul, and spirit, and remind him that you have already died to him, and that now your life is hidden in Mine and I alone sit at the right hand of God, making intercession for you.  Deut. 30:19-20a, “I call on heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have presented you with life and death, the blessing and the curse.  Therefore, choose life, so that you will live, you and your descendants, loving the Lord your God, paying attention to what He says and clinging to Him – for that is the purpose of your life!”  Col. 3:3-4, “For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, appears, then you too will appear with him in glory.”

6/23/2017 Daily Word

In times past as we communed in the place of intimacy I asked of you what you wanted.  You responded both wisely and honestly.  I have not forgotten the intimate requests of your heart, the tears you shed, or the faithfulness with which you have continued even when it seemed I was silent.  Many of those things you asked of Me you have forgotten, but I did not.  Listen, for in the place of intimacy I will remind you of your petitions and in that place I will give you eyes to see the work I’ve begun for you.  For you delight in Me, and I want you to know the depths of My love and pleasure in you.  Ps. 91:14-16, “Because he loves Me, I will rescue him; because he knows My name, I will protect him.  He will call upon Me, and I will answer Him.  I will be with him when he is in trouble.  I will extricate him and bring him honor.  I will satisfy him with long life and show him My salvation.”

6/22/2017 Daily Word

Be ever vigilant and listen closely to the voice of My Spirit.  Now, more than ever, the enemy is seeking ways to infiltrate the lives of My people, and in the very place you think you are secure, he can find opening when you are not watching. Be especially aware of your relationships and attitudes towards others, as it is in your interactions with them that you become most vulnerable to the lure of the flesh. Love much, forgive quickly. Evaluate yourself, and immediately rectify any area of your life in which you find yourself out of alignment with My Word.  My Word at work in your life, wielded properly, will prevent him from finding legitimate grounds of operation, and when you resist him, he will flee.  I Peter 5:8, “Be alert and of sober mind.  Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”

6/21/2017 Daily Word

My Child, I have not forgotten you, nor have you been left behind.  I have withheld you from stepping forward, not because you are behind the others, but so that I can propel you forth.  I have drawn you back, not to discipline you, but to release you as an arrow toward My target and goal for you.  It has been slow in coming, but when I release you, it will happen suddenly and with such momentum that it cannot be stopped.  Do not concern yourself, for your destiny is in My hands and every word I have spoken over you will come to pass.  Rest, confident, that My timing is best, and you are loved beyond measure.  Is.49:2-3, “He has made my mouth like a sharp sword while hiding me in the shadow of His hand; He has made me like a sharpened arrow while concealing me in His quiver.  He said to me, ‘You are My servant, Israel, through whom I will show My glory.’”

6/21/2017 Daily Word

There is a new generation arising that is stepping into the callings and mantles of My aging servants, and there are new doors of opportunity opening up for advancement in My Kingdom.  Be careful and watch, for many will claim positions out of pride and assumption, but wait for those who have been confirmed by My Spirit.  It is not the one who declares expectation for himself, but the one both appointed and anointed for this particular season.  Wait for those that from their births I have groomed and made ready.  They are the ones carried by humility, and whose authority is not self-proclaimed, but decreed from My throne.  Watch, for their advancement won’t be paraded and partied by the masses, but it will be heralded in the heavenlies for they are My chosen ones, anointed for such a time as this.  I Kings 1; 1:33-34a, “The king said to them, ‘Take with you the servants of your lord, have Solomon my son ride on my own mule and bring him down to Gichon.  There Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet are to anoint him king.’”

6/20/2017 Daily Word

Do not fear emptiness.  An empty vessel is one that I will fill to overflowing.  Allow everything that is of the flesh to be emptied out, replaced by the anointing of My Spirit.  As My Spirit fills you, allow Him to flow through you.  The infilling is not a one-time occurrence, but rather a continual current that springs forth from My throne to those that will allow it to move through them to the world.  So many are seeking a mighty gush, and like a dam holding back when once allowed to flow it will come like a flood, for the purpose of developing new streams of My glory that will cover the earth. Be the one that allows My Spirit free reign to emanate forth from your being, washing away the flesh and establishing a vessel whose source never runs dry, for the Source – My Spirit – dwells in you and flows through you.  2 Tim. 2:21-22, “If a person keeps himself free of defilement by the latter, he will be a vessel set aside for honorable use by the master of the house and ready for every kind of good work.  So, flee the passions of youth; and, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart, pursue righteousness, faithfulness, love and peace.”
