You must step forward into the darkness if you would see it illuminated with My light.  Yes, I spoke the Word and there was light, but in this present darkness, you are light I have called forth.  Dare to shine brightly, bringing faith in the midst of doubt, peace in the midst of turmoil, and life in the midst of death.  Remember, that darkness must flee in the presence of light.  Do not hide from that which I’ve called you to confront.  Stand firm as My representative in a fallen world, allowing My Spirit to bring revelation through you to those who have dwelt in the shadows too long. Matt. 5:14-16, “You are the light of the world.  A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.  Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

What if I heeded your call for escape from your current trouble?  What if I retaliated immediately every time someone hurt you?  What if I gave into your impetuous requests without thought to what would happen?  What if I answered every single prayer you’ve ever uttered and every mindless word you’ve silently spoken against another?  It is NOT that I do not love you, but rather because I love you.  Child, you must learn to trust that I, as your Father, know best, and learn to leave all in My hands, for what if I decided to answer the impulsive prayer of another aimed at you?  Rom. 9:22-23, “Now what if God, even though He was quite willing to demonstrate his anger and make known His power, patiently put up with people who deserved punishment and were ripe for destruction?  What if He did this in order to make known the riches of His glory to those who are the objects of His mercy, whom He prepared in advance for glory?”

Just as I covered My Ark of Covenant with the Israelites, so you, too, must cover your covenant relationships.  Make sure that you do so with mercy.  Mercy is a characteristic of Love – who I AM.  Without it, only judgment remains.  Covenant relationships were meant to be deep and profound, not entered into lightly, as in their development provide opportunity to criticize and condemn.  That is not their purpose.  Rather, they are to provide My people a safe place from the storm, knowing that in them they can find mercy, restoration, and hope.  Covenant is special because it is filled with the loving communion, not condemnation, and miraculous redemption and provision.  This, after all, is what I have done for you.  Make sure if you claim covenant, you are truly walking in it as I walked – willingly laying down My life for those who would turn their back on it.  Ex. 25:21, “And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.”

6/14/2017 Daily Word

Always aim to do My will.  Love people purely, believing that I am able to save to the uttermost and knowing that you follow My lead by walking in compassion.  So many have become sidetracked from what I intended for them by falling into disputes that do not bring Me glory or benefit My Kingdom and abandoning covenant with their own brethren made in My image and for whom I died.  How can the world know My love, if My church does not show it?  This is My will – that you love without compromise, just as I have loved you.  I Tim. 1:11-12, “Promote love from a clean heart, from a good conscience and from sincere trust.  Some, by aiming amiss, have wandered off into fruitless discussion.”

6/13/2017 Daily Word

Resist the urge to question your call based upon your performance or the results.  Your call had nothing to do with your abilities, for before you were born, I had called you.  Before you ever could, I had determined you would. You were chosen by Me.  It has never been about your own strength, but rather My strength being allowed to manifest through you.  Walk forward confidently, resting in the knowledge that you are exactly where I want you for such a time as this, and your faithful obedience will reap a harvest that is even now developing roots unseen that will bear eternal fruit.  Is. 49:1b, “ADONAI called me from the womb; before I was born, He had spoken my name.”

Up close all you may see is beautiful, confounding chaos, but when you choose to step back and look, you will see patterns indicative of My design.  What I do is not automatically apparent, and often it appears My hand has no part in it. However, when viewed from the perspective of eternity My handiwork is obvious.  You cannot look at everything from your own limited viewpoint.  The canvas on which I paint is too large for you to comprehend what I am doing or what I intend at this point. There are yet connections to be made, and in due time I will reveal to you the masterpiece upon which I work.  For now, learn to be content with the mere stroke before you, for in it is the color and texture of heaven.  Ps. 104:1, 24, “Bless the LORD, my soul!  LORD, my God, You are very great; You are clothed with glory and majesty, wrapped in light as with a robe.  You spread out the heavens like a curtain…What variety there is in Your works, LORD!  How many [of them there are]!  In wisdom You have made them all; the earth is full of Your creations.”

6/9/2017 Daily Word

Many of you are experiencing times of stretching, even to the point of believing your prayers have gone unheeded in Heaven.  Rest assured that I have heard your cry. However, I have called you to a higher place that requires you to walk through a flaming fire, producing a patience in you that is indicative of your maturity in Me.  Your maturity will enable you to walk in new authority.  I have declared a time of dynamic growth and promotion for those that will endure the flames of testing.  Endurance is paramount to the new assignment I am unleashing in the earth.  Remain steadfast, My child, and look forward, knowing that this fire lasts for a moment, but the results will be eternal.  James 1:2-4, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.  Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”

6/8/2017 Daily Word

Will you be the one that declares vision over those that dwell in doubt?  Can your faith reside beside those who need revelation and not only survive, but thrive?  I am calling forth greater faith amongst My people to bring light to those that dwell in darkness!  It is a faith that declares mountains move, paths straighten, and people be healed and set free! It is a faith that speaks revelation and eyes be opened to Truth!  Don’t cower in the shadows of darkness, but come forth radiating faith to those around you.  Watch, for I will bring forth Life from your faith, and those that have doubted will have the opportunity to touch Me and be changed.  Jude, vs. 20-23, “But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourself in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.  Be merciful to those who doubt.”

6/7/2017 Daily Word

Learn to curb the appetite of your soul.  Your desires can hinder you from walking in the fullness of what I have planned for you, because the soul aches for that which will feed its self-centeredness.  You must control it, bringing it into alignment with My Spirit, submitting your word to My Word.  The more you do so, the more you will find that your desires have changed from a fleshly to a holy nature.  And this is the great lie of the soul, that holiness is unattainable and will detract from your life.  This is not so.  My Spirit not only enables the holy life, but brings forth an abundance of life you’ve yet to experience.  2 Cor. 7:1, “My dear friends, since we have these promises, let us purify ourselves from everything that can defile either body or spirit, and strive to be completely holy, out of reverence for God.”
