I want you to leave it in My hands. I want you to let it go and purposefully place it in My hands, trusting Me that I am able to resolve it.  Yes, it is important, but of greater concern to Me at this moment is the distraction it has become in your life.  It is preventing you from what I have called you to, and the agitation it is creating in your spirit is interfering with your spiritual growth.  Even your questions and curiosities can become idols if you allow them to linger within your thoughts and overtake your musings.  We have an eternity together to get to them all.  I want you to let this ball and chain within your mind go, having faith that I know exactly what is happening in the world, in My church, and in your life.  Col. 3:1-2, “So if you were raised along with Christ, then seek the things above, where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God. Focus your minds on the things above, not on things here on earth.”

Where are you looking for your help?  You live in a world of distorted reality in which self-help has become a bandage for the hemorrhaging soul, and men are bleeding out all over.  Lift your eyes and look to Me, the Creator of Heaven and of Earth.  I have come to bind up the wounds of all brokenhearted men.  I am the Creator who restores, revives, remakes, and renames!  The impossibilities of man become possible in My hands. Look to Me, your Maker, that I may make all things new for you, calling forth light from your darkness, joy from your ashes, and life from death.  Come to Me, and I will transform your mourning into a melody that will inspire your spirit to dance over your difficulties and sing over your situation a song of praise and deliverance – the very song of redemption your heart has yearned to sing!  Ps. 30:11-12, “You turned my mourning into dancing! You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, so that my well-being can praise you and not be silent; ADONAI my God, I will thank you forever!”

10/30/2017 Daily Word

There must be a yielding of your flesh to My Spirit.  You must learn to bend your will in submission to Mine, understanding what it means to take up your cross daily.  This can only be accomplished through the empowerment of My Spirit in your life.  Outside of My Spirit, apart from Me, you can do nothing.  It is not by might that My Church will be built, nor by power, but rather by the movement of My Spirit upon the hearts of men. You must pray purposefully, pray diligently, pray without ceasing that My Spirit will draw the hearts of men, and when you have wearied of praying, pray some more. Will you be one who stands in the ever-widening gap, that the land be not destroyed?  Ez. 22:30, “I sought for a man among them who could build a barricade or stand in the break to oppose Me on behalf of the land, so that I would not destroy it; but I found no one.”

10/27/2017 Daily Word

It is My desire that you move forward in everything.  Yes, My Spirit is here to lead and guide you into all truth, and truth must be acted upon.  Truth will set you free, yet so many remain standing in unlocked chains refusing to act on the reality I have spoken into their lives.  Truth will not be ignored.  At some point you will have to confront all I have revealed to you, whether on earth or in heaven.  Choose, My Child, to confront and deal with the lies of the enemy.  Walk in the freedom I have provided and dispose of the chains.  You do yourself no favor by remaining angry and clinging to the instrument of your bondage.  Eph. 4:25-27, “Therefore, each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body.  In your anger do not sin: do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.”

10/26/2017 Daily Word

Those who are content with the crumbs have never seen the banqueting table.  If they had, they would realize that it is worth more than the perceived cost to themselves. Yes, they would understand that My Kingdom is worth the investment.  That I ask for My children to come with clean hands and a pure heart is not so much for Me to ask.  Even earthly fathers do the same.  I so desire to sit down and sup with My children and see their eyes sparkle with delight at what I have prepared for them – so many of their favorites, and new delicacies for them to discover.  Everything has been planned with My unfailing love for them.  Yet, so many are outside, satisfied to have received My invitation gilded in gold and go on their way, rather than invest in the journey that will lead them to the feast I have arranged.  If you will not come, there are many more who will.  Oh, but I so long to see your face!  Luke 14:15-24; Song of Songs 2:4, “He brings me to the banquet hall; His banner over me is love.”

10/25/2017 Daily Word

The pain is natural and real, but there is purpose to your pain, and it will not be for naught.  The pain you feel is the crowning of your miracle.  You have prayed, and now your answer is at hand.  Do not give in to the pain, jeopardizing its purpose. To give in to the pain is to abandon the promise for which you’ve waited so long.  The time is now, the season has come.  Push past the pain, My Child, that you may see the physical manifestation of that which you’ve carried so long in your spirit.  The reality of what you’ve held within you is much more than you ever dreamed.  2 Cor. 4:17-18, “For our light and transient troubles are achieving for us an everlasting glory whose weight is beyond description.  We concentrate not on what is seen but on what is not seen, since things seen are temporary, but things not seen are eternal.”

10/24/2017 Daily Word

There are battles that are of Me and some that are not.  Some are just diversionary tactics to get your focus off the course I’ve called you to, and some I have allowed to come to your doorstep, so that a Kingdom victory can be realized on behalf of yourself and others.  I have given you wisdom to discern the difference. When I direct your steps toward battle, if you will cry out to Me, not only will I act and bring about victory on your behalf, but I will cause you to carry away the spoils of war.   For every battle has a season, and every war you face against the enemy is meant to be won.  The victor claims the spoils, and you are more than a conqueror.  Do not despair, but stand confidently, arrayed for battle, and resist the onslaught of the enemy, knowing that I am going with you, and will cause all of My desire to be accomplished in this momentary conflict. I Chron. 5:19-22, “And they made war with the Hagarites, with Jetur, and Nephish, and Nodab. And they were helped against them, and the Hagarites were delivered into their hands, and all that were with them: for they cried to God in the battle, and He was intreated of them; because they put their trust in Him. And they took away their cattle; of their camels fifty thousand, and of sheep two hundred and fifty thousand, and of asses two thousand, and of men an hundred thousand. For there fell down many slain, because the war was of God. And they dwelt in their steads until the captivity.”

To meet your every need is My promise; to know that you trust Me to do so is a delight.  To never leave or forsake you is My assurance; to know that you never want to leave is My joy.  To shed My blood for your deliverance was My sacrifice; to see you walking in freedom is My pleasure. Everything has been done and all given so that you can know Me intimately and walk into the fullness of life I have planned for you.  You are My treasure, revelation My gift.  All that I have belongs to those who love Me and have united themselves with Me. John 14:19-21, “In just a little while, the world will no longer see Me; but you will see Me.  Because I live, you too will live.  When that day comes, you will know that I am united with My Father, and you with Me, and I with you.  Whoever has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves Me, and the one who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and reveal Myself to him.”

10/20/2017 Daily Word

Let Me love on you.  Let Me wrap you in My embrace, wipe the tears from your eyes, and assure you again that all is in My hands.  Your crying, I know, has endured for many a night, but I am bringing forth joy – a joy that only comes from standing in the midst of battle with sword stuck to hand and then realizing the battle has been won.  You can release it now, knowing it will never be an issue again.  I know you are weary from this fight, but allow your soul to rest in Me.  This battle has been fought and won, and a new day and season are upon you. You will arise from your tears in greater strength, understanding, and authority than ever before because you fought with integrity of heart and with the single-minded purpose of bringing Me glory.  In this I am well-pleased.  Rom. 15:13, “May God, the source of hope, fill you completely with joy and peace as you continue trusting, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may overflow with hope.”

10/19/2017 Daily Word

In the day of your trouble I heard you, and on the day of your despair I decreed your deliverance.  Though the answer seemed far off and allusive, it existed in My heart before you had called to Me.  Even before you knew what you had need of, My Spirit was at work orchestrating an answer that would bring about a symphony of glorious praise issuing forth from the unique instrument that is you.  Rest easy, My Child, for though at times the answer seems dissonant, when all is said and done it will enhance the music of your life in ways you could not discern when first you saw the arrangement.  Is. 65:24, “And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.”
