1/31/2018 New Season, New Supply, New Victory

I AM the Lord your God! Remember the former times, and how I lifted you up and strengthened you with My right hand. Remember My goodness and faithfulness to you.  Remember the battles past, where I went before you, ensuring victory.  My covenant has not changed, neither has My heart toward you. Behold, you are entering a new season with new battles and new challenges, but along with them come new supply and new victories. Remind yourself of My working in your past, and then look forward not with trepidation, but with expectation, for I AM the Lord God who does a new thing in you, for you, and with you. Lift your eyes and step into it! Ps. 96:1-3, “Sing to ADONAI a new song! Sing to ADONAI all the earth! Sing to ADONAI, bless His Name! Proclaim His victory day after day! Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples!”

1/30/2018 Take Your Hill!

With passionate perseverance and eyes set like flint, I took the hill called Golgotha splitting time in two and giving mankind a fresh start. I have called you to do the same – to take up an offensive position against the enemy and take back your hill for the Kingdom of God. Even in your weakness, move forward in faith, for with Me all things are possible. I am not saying it will be pleasant, for the cross was not an easy trek, but I did it because I saw the future benefit and reward that was you. Hope is the possession of those who will dare to believe that all have a future in Me and will advance into the vision I’ve given even when the odds seem against them.  Remember, I am with you always, and if you will determine to take your hill, I will go before you and make the way plain. There is great joy awaiting you on the other side. Heb. 12:1-2, “Therefore since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

1/29/2018 A Mature Church

I desire for My church to press on into maturity. A mature church is a powerful and relevant church. Immaturity in Truth is still immaturity, and the world has noted it within My church. Maturity in Truth exercises My authority and power in the earth, and it comes as you purposefully choose to go beyond the fundamental and learn and lean on My Holy Spirit, who is your leader and guide in all things pertaining to Truth. A mature church is a church of discernment and understanding that acts upon My Word of Life and doesn’t just theorize about it. It will be the mature church that unleashes what I about to do, and they will do so with wisdom that leaves no doubt as to Whom they belong. It’s time for My children to grow up in all things. Heb. 5:12-Heb. 6:1, “For although by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the very first principles of God’s Word all over again! You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who has to drink milk is still a baby, without experience in applying the Word about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties have been trained by continuous exercise to distinguish good from evil. Therefore, leaving behind the initial lessons about the Messiah, let us go on to maturity, not laying again the foundation of turning from works that lead to death, trusting God.” CJB

1/26/2018 Unholy Fleeces

Many of you have thrown unholy fleeces down before Me, and I want you to repent and renounce them. These prayers you make of “If You, then I…,” or, “If I, then You,” are not the way I want My children to communicate and relate to Me. These vows are an immature way of attempting to discern My will, and you unwittingly put Me in a box by them. I will not be dictated to or limited by your own finite solutions. It was My infinite love and mercy that humored Gideon’s request. My Spirit was upon him, but it is within you! I desire for you to not only hear My voice, but to hear and trust it enough to act upon it without proof of My intentions. I proved those at the cross. Do you allow your own children to get away with such? Luke 4:12, “Jesus responded, ‘The Scriptures also say, ‘You must not test the LORD your God.’”

12/25/2018 Speak the Word!

To speak My Word is to declare My presence over your situation and life! What is the Word that I have given to you? It is time to bring forth those former words that you have kept hidden in your heart out into the open and to declare them out. For have I not said, My Word will not return void! You’ve wanted a new beginning and to truly separate your past from your present and future. Speak My Word! It is an eternal Word, relevant to every moment. It stands throughout time, never to be shaken. It is time to make declarations, and you must begin by declaring My Word! Is. 55:11, “So shall My Word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” NKJV

1/24/2018 A Convincing Love

What are you persuaded by? In the end, you will be persuaded by either the flesh or by My Spirit. The enemy would tempt My church with power, possessions, and perversity. I woo you with My Person. Will you be convinced of the love I have for you – a love that confronted the power of death that you may have life? It is your choice. It is My desire that having been persuaded by My love, you will be rooted and grounded in it. For many are the arguments of men and demons, and difficult are the circumstances of life, but My love surpasses it all. Rom. 8:38-39, “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

1/23/2018 An Oasis of God’s Presence

Many have been experiencing a spiritual drought and have been walking through the wilderness. You have felt as though I am far away. You have tilled a difficult soil and have become discouraged because what you have planted has been consumed, stolen, or shriveled up. But know this, that even as you have felt spiritually dry, I have been drawing you with My love. Yes, I am going to cause you to dance in your wilderness and cause waters to burst forth where you are – even in a barren land. I am going to establish you and strengthen you and cause you to enjoy the fruit of your labor, for you have been faithful. I am going to restore the land I have given you to steward, and what was once only parched earth will become an oasis of My presence and power – the working of My hands for My glory. Jer. 31:3-5, “The LORD appeared to Him from afar, saying, ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore, I have drawn you with lovingkindness. Again I will build you and you will be rebuilt…again you will plant vineyards…the planters will plant and will enjoy them.” NASB

1/22/2018 Ask!

Will you believe Me for the big things? Will you dare to put into words what you hold in your heart and ask? For I am an extravagant God who will move in extraordinary ways on behalf of My children, whom I love. Have I not told you, you have not because you ask not? I am telling you to ask, understanding that it is My desire to supply. My supply is unlimited and who else shall I give to steward it? Ask! Phil. 4:19, “But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

1/12/2018 Laugh!

I am going to fill your heart and mouth with laughter! Yes, laughter! For too long you have been in a place of sorrow, stress, and shame, and now it is over! Begin with a smile. Smile over what I have done, then sing for joy and declare your release with boldness and confidence. Follow it up with laughter and throw in a dance or two, for I have done a great thing for you! Laugh over the chains that are no more, and dance into your future! This is My prescription for you, and as you laugh, you’ll find I am laughing with you. Ps. 126:1-3, “When the LORD brought back the captivity of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, ‘The LORD has done great things for them.’ The LORD has done great things for us and we are glad.

1/11/2018 Meditate & Do

Disbelief, disregard, and discouragement. All are a battle fought within the mind, all are of the enemy, and all will cause you to wilt spiritually if you allow it. Rise up, I say, and fight! You must choose the path of life. Where there is doubt, let faith arise. Where there is disregard, choose honor. Where there is discouragement, encourage yourself in Me. These things you know, now do! You can take this ground. With Me all things are possible!  Phil. 4:8-9, “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy – meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.” NKJV
