Idolatry takes many forms.  My grace covers idolatry, but does not excuse it.  My child, there are many things and people that vie for My place in your affections – even good things.  You must remember, though, that it was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil from which Adam ate.  The good of the tree was just as deadly as the evil.  Anything or anyone else, no matter how “good,” only foreshadow death when separated from Me, for without Me no good can dwell.  I alone am good, and it is I who give life to the people and world around you.  Even those you hold most dear, must take second place to My Lordship in your life.  In choosing to put Me first, you will find that I will infuse your relationships and ministries with the fruitfulness that Adam rejected by choosing something good over that which would bring life. Ex. 20:3-6, “You are to have no other gods before Me.  You are not to make for yourselves a carved image or any kind of representation of anything in heaven above, on the earth beneath or in the water below the shoreline. You are not to bow down to them or serve them; for I, ADONAI your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sins of the parents to third and fourth generation of those who hate Me, but displaying My grace to the thousandth generation of those who love Me and keep My commandments.”

Begin now to prioritize that which is of greatest value, and practice letting things go that do not align with My purposes for your life.  This is important, for as you are promoted and advancement comes, you will need to flow easily, properly discerning the roles of others, as well as yourself.  Some things you will need to surrender, others you will need to create greater room for as expansion occurs.  This is not a judgment upon you, My child.  It is a safety precaution.  I desire to use you in great ways that will complement the abundance of life I have decreed for you, but that is only realized when balanced with rest, recreation, and relationship. Choose wisely and according to My Spirit, child.  The decisions you make now will impact your future one way or another.  Ps. 90:12, “So teach us to number our days, that we may present to you a heart of wisdom.”

Growth is a choice.  Growth is a principle of My Kingdom, but it is a choice that you must make for yourself.  It comes with careful attention to the finer details, as you move forward spiritually from precept to precept, glory to glory.  Growth comes with increased revelation into My nature and character, and revelation comes to those who will seek it – I’m no respecter of persons.  Seeing My children grow provides Me with great satisfaction.  It is the mature children who develop closer, more intimate bonds with their parent, because it is no longer need based, but relationally based in love that is chosen for its own sake and time given not grudgingly, but with delight.  There is much I desire to share with you, My child, and I would have you choose to make growth a priority, so I may do so.  Heb. 5:13-14, “Anyone who has to drink milk is still a baby, without experience in applying the Word of righteousness.  But solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties have been trained by continuous exercise to distinguish good from evil.”

My Only Begotten, My Son and My Treasure, abused and spitefully used, while holding the wisdom of heaven and words of life for all ages, past and present.  Their behavior did not affect His identity in the least.  You, too, are My treasure and the perceptions and actions of others do not define you.  You are Mine to mold and make.  Indeed, all My treasures go through fire.  It is refining you.  That I allow it does not mean I endorse it or that I will not vindicate you. I will, however, use it to shape you. Keep this in mind, and listen for the sound of your Loving Father who is rejoicing over you, My great treasure, as you become even more pliable and able to reflect My image more clearly for having overcome. I Pt. 2:9, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”

Have I not said that no weapon formed against you shall prosper?  That includes not only the obvious, but those plans secreted away that have yet to be discerned by you.  I will silence the mouth of the enemy that is spewing death and cause him to give an account for the accusations he has brought against My child.  Be still and watch Me expose the hidden workings of the enemy while at the same time bringing great victory in those areas that have thus far been troublesome to you. You have endured with patience, and now I say, “Enough is enough!”  No longer will you, My child, be subjected to the degradation of the enemy in this area, but you shall walk in the freedom I have won for you.  Is. 54:17, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against you in judgment you shall condemn.  This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me, says the LORD.”

Rise up, My beloved, and come away!  I will lead you by the hand to the place you need to be, but you must first arise and choose to come away with Me.  You’ve been content in your settlement, but have gradually grown dissatisfied.  This is My Spirit stirring you towards movement.  You have known this, but have hesitated and, as a result, risked spiritual atrophy.  As you move towards Me, I will not only move towards you, but take you by the hand revealing more of Myself than ever before.  Won’t you trust Me and come away, allowing Me to lead you to a greater place of intimacy where I can reproduce My life in you?  Song of Songs 2:9-10, “My darling is like a gazelle or young stag.  There He is, standing outside our wall, looking in through the windows, peering in through the lattice.  My darling speaks; He is saying to me, ‘Get up, My love! My beauty! Come away!’”

My child, I have seen the enemy’s attempt to encroach upon your life, and I have watched the nighttime battles you have fought when I alone acted as witness.  Your face has been before Mine, and I have held you in the night season.  Yes, in the fiercest of storms, I have held you, rebuking the waves you had yet to see.  And when your heart despaired, I rejoiced over you with songs. I went before and behind you, as well as stood by your side, singing songs of deliverance, declaring My Word over you.  The enemy’s attempts to intrude upon the abundant life I have provided for you will not last in the light of My declared Word, for it is a living, breathing, creative Word set to the tune of heaven and composed just for you.  My child, sing with Me your song of deliverance!  Let us lift our voices in unity and as one, sing, expelling the violator from the song that is your life. I have decreed a new dawning over you, full of vibrant color that extinguishes the dark! Sing!  Ps. 32:7, “You are a hiding-place for me, You will keep me from my distress; You will surround me with songs of deliverance.”

Just as there are small indications of a change in the season, so My movement is not always obvious and is detected in the seemingly trivial.  Like the rustle of a leaf against its branch and the subtle shifting of a blade of grass in the wind, so is My Spirit’s movement. Silent observation is of benefit, and you cannot move so quickly that you miss the fine nuances of what I am speaking and where I am going for having heard and seen the broader vision.  If you will watch, finely tuning your spiritual senses, you will discern and be prepared to step into the fulness of what I am about to do in the earth. A degree off in any direction will cause you to miss the intended destination of My course, and that is not my desire for any man.  I Cor. 2:14-15a, “Now the natural man does not receive the things from the Spirit of God – to him they are nonsense!  Moreover, he is unable to grasp them, because they are evaluated through the Spirit.  But the person who has the Spirit can evaluate everything…”

10/6/2017 Daily Word

Rejoice, My people, rejoice!  Rejoice for My mercy towards you endures forever!  Rejoice in My grace that brings victory!  Rejoice in My continued presence in your life!  I love the sound of My people rejoicing!  Allow yourself to once again experience the joy of your salvation, and Mine at receiving you unto Myself.  Remember the days when you first returned to Me and how you basked in the glow of My light and life?  My love for you has not changed, and our time together has been My delight.  Do not give way to despair, rather rejoice, for I am your God and you are My people.  Nothing shall separate you from My love or Me from My throne – so rejoice!  I AM over all! Ps. 47:7-9, “Sing praises to God, sing praises!  Sing praises to our king, sing praises!  For God is king of all the earth; sing praises in a poem.  God rules the nations; God sits on His holy throne.”

10/5/2017 Daily Word

Don’t allow your heart to grow troubled over what is happening in the world.  Did I not say that such would be a sign of the times?  I have prepared a place for you in the midst of this trouble.  It is a place of power and authority, that has you standing in your proper position in My Kingdom.  Choose to stand in this place, in this time, and having done all, stand!  For in this place I will give you opportunity to act, and to act in such a way that will bring peace to those who are troubled, introducing them to their Savior.  However, these occasions will come only to those standing in the place of My choosing.  To be in any place other than that which I have prepared is to step beyond your realm of jurisdiction.  Be careful in this, for My Kingdom is an orderly one, and I desire unity of movement, as well as purpose.  Your position has been assigned, I have gone ahead of you – now stand and act! John 14:1-2, “Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in Me.  In My Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.  I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, you may be also.”
