Trust My character and My nature.  My love that went to the cross for you is a love that will go the distance.  One of the enemy’s tactics is to make you believe you have been separated from it through fear and intimidation.  If I am for you, who can be against you?  You must believe that there is no condemnation in Me.  You spend more time thinking that I have come into agreement with you instead of endeavoring to come into agreement with Me.  By far, I am more loving towards you than you have been towards yourself.  Embrace the love I have for you and walk in it.  It is a healing, delivering, saving love that enables you to overcome and be all that I have called you to be.  Rom. 8:31-39, “If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare even His own Son, but gave Him up on behalf of us all – is it possible that, having given us His Son, He would not give us everything else too?  So who will bring a charge against God’s chosen people?  Certainly not God – He is the One who causes them to be considered righteous!  Who punishes them?  Certainly not the Messiah Jesus, who died and – more than that – has been raised, is at the right hand of God and is actually pleading on our behalf!  Who will separate us from the love of the Messiah?  Trouble? Hardship? Persecution? Hunger? Poverty? Danger? War?  As it is written, ‘For your sake we are being put to death all day long, we are considered sheep to be slaughtered.’ No, in all these things we are superconquerors, through the One who has loved us.  For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers, neither what exists nor what is coming, neither the powers above nor powers below, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God which comes to us through the Messiah Jesus, our Lord.”

There are so many things that vie for the number one spot in your life.  Have I not said there are to be no other gods before Me?  How often I spoke a word of direction, a word to bring peace immediately, but you didn’t hear Me because you were distracted, and then you blamed Me for My silence.  Have I not told you that I long to be intimately involved in your life, and have you not prayed for power to overcome?  Power is a result of My continuing presence in your life.  Draw close to Me and I will draw close to you.  You must make a conscious effort to move beyond all that would jockey for position in your life and learn to abide in Me.  This is part of the overcoming life – a life that chooses Me above all else. Jer. 16:19-21, “ADONAI, my strength, my fortress, my refuge in time of trouble, the nations will come to You from the ends of the earth, saying, ‘Our ancestors inherited nothing but lies, futile idols, completely useless.’ Can a person make himself gods? (In fact, they aren’t gods at all.)”

“Therefore, I will make them know, once and for all, I will make them know My power and My might.  Then they will know that My Name is ADONAI.”

Your anxiety has been for naught.  I have declared acceleration and expansion, and the tension you are feeling is your tent pegs being stretched to make room for the greater influence and authority I have ordained for you.  That for which you’ve prayed is coming to pass, and I am expanding your boundaries.  Just as I say to the ocean, “This far and no more,” so I am controlling this Kingdom expansion in you.  I know its timing and its boundaries, and I know you.  Rest in Me, and submit to the tug of My Spirit, for I have nothing but good thoughts toward you to provide a hope-filled future.  Is. 54:2-4a, “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes.  For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.  Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame.  Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated.”

Do not be surprised, My beloved, when many harden their hearts against what I am doing in you and what I am doing in the world.  It has nothing to do with you, and everything to do with Me.  You must remain steady and firm, trusting that I am able to see you through anything that a hard heart can conceive.  Did I not differentiate between My people and the Egyptians when Pharaoh became hardhearted and would not heed My Word?  So too, in these last days, will I bestow favor upon My people and deliver them in the time of trouble, for you belong to Me and the insolence of the enemy that is rising up against you will not go unpunished.  Be at peace; I am for you.  Ex. 14:13-14, “Moses answered the people, ‘Stop being so fearful!  Remain steady, and you will see how ADONAI is going to save you.  He will do it today – today you have seen the Egyptians, but you will never see them again!  ADONAI will do battle for you.  Just calm yourselves down!’’

My Word is power!  It is sharp and will make a distinction between soul and spirit.  You must remain in My Word so that you, too, can distinguish between them and obtain the power to overcome. My gospel is one of good news!  It has power over every work of the enemy that would seek to harm you as My child.  Speak forth My Word!  Speak forth My good news of deliverance over those areas in your life where the enemy has tried to enslave you.  Even as he has sought to kill, steal, and destroy you in body, soul, and spirit, I have come to give life, freedom, and restoration. My Word has declared your salvation!  Don’t be ashamed to cling to it, for it is your deliverance and sets you free to worship Me.  Rom. 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:  for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

9/8/2017 Daily Word

Just as I led the children of Israel as a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night to bring them into their promised land, in whatever season you find yourself, I will make Myself noticeable so that you can follow My lead.  You have at times wondered where I am at, but if you will take the time to look for Me, I will not only be found, but I will lead you in the way in which you should go.  There are many distractions that vie for your attention and many ways which may seem right to you.  It is not a matter of the right or wrong way, the good or bad path, but rather the true path.  I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  No matter how “right” a matter or way seems, it can crumble when confronted with the weight of who I AM.  In Me is the surety you desire. Look for Me, for I desire to show Myself and those who seek Me will find Me.  Prov. 14:12, “There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.”

9/7/2017 Daily Word

If you would have heaven on earth, then you must learn to cultivate the atmosphere of heaven around you.  It is one of continual praise and worship – one that recognizes and rejoices over My holiness.  Heaven recognizes My omnipotence, omniscience, and omnipresence.  You can walk in that recognition now.  You can choose to acknowledge that I am ever with you and know all that concerns you – indeed, able to move on your behalf.  You can create an atmosphere of holiness by taking every thought captive to obey My Spirit and watching what you allow to enter your life and home.  Heaven on earth is something that requires the effort of My people, for it is an invasion of the strongholds of hell. You must realize that it is a cooperative effort.  When your life is centered more on Me than on you, heaven on earth is within your reach.  How I long to answer this prayer and for My people to walk in total confidence in My Person all of the time, so that My will can be accomplished on earth as quickly as it is in heaven!  Matt. 6:9-13, You, therefore, pray like this: ‘Our Father in heaven!  May Your Name be kept holy.  May Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as in heaven.  Give us the food we need today.  Forgive us what we have done wrong, as we too have forgiven those who have wronged us.  And do not lead us into hard testing, but keep us safe from the Evil One.  For kingship, power, and glory are Yours forever.  Amen.’”

Quiet yourself before Me.  Yes, still yourself in My presence.  You have waded in the floodwaters, striven against the wind, and watched as fires raged which you couldn’t put out.  This is the time in which you live – both physically and spiritually.  Quiet yourself, and listen for My voice.  I will guide you in the way you should go, and My peace which passes all understanding is yours to guard your heart until My coming.  You can choose to operate in your own strength, or you can be still and know that I am God, allowing Me to guide you through all the turmoil of this present age.  My child, choose Me, for I am the God that walks on water, rides on the wind, and stands in the midst of fiery furnaces, and I am for youPs. 104:1-4, “Bless ADONAI, my soul!  ADONAI, 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, You laid the beams of Your palace on the water.  You make the clouds Your chariot, You ride on the wings of the wind.  You make winds Your messengers, fiery flames Your servants.”

You cannot reject My Word.  To reject My Word is to attempt to separate it from Me, and that cannot be done.  To reject it is to reject Me.  To reject Me is to reject the saving, reconciling work I did for you at the cross.  It is one thing to be ignorant of My Word and lack understanding.  My Spirit brings revelation to those that seek the truth of it, offering insight into My nature and character.  It is entirely different to know what My Word says and change it for your own gain or convenience.  I am an inconvenient God – I change for no man.  Choose now to be uncompromising in your approach to My Word, and you will see Me as I AM – altogether true and just; altogether loving and longsuffering towards men, especially those who would attempt to force Me into their sinful image instead of themselves being transformed and walking in My holiness as they were created to do.  Prov. 30:4-6, “Who has gone up to heaven and come down?  Who has cupped the wind in the palm of His hands?  Who has wrapped up the waters in His cloak?  Who established all the ends of the earth?  What is His name, and what is His son’s name?  Surely you know!  Every word of God’s is pure; He shields those taking refuge in Him.  Don’t add anything to His words; or He will rebuke you, and you be found a liar.”

Your labor has not been in vain.  I have been at work directing your steps, planning and building.  You have not yet stepped into what you have been working towards with Me, but that day is coming soon.  The foundation is laid and the frame is up and covered.  While you have had many delays, many things attempting to hinder your progress, you have continued to labor, and that is perseverance I can bless.  I will make this latter time better than the former.  You cannot even begin to imagine what I have for this house of Mine. Continue your labor, My child, for I am indeed building and doing more than you have imagined. Ps. 127:1, “Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.”
