2/28/2018 Stop and Listen

Develop an ear to hear, for My Spirit will not speak in a rage, but quietly as a Comforter. He is peace, not chaos. Thunderbolts from heaven will not illuminate your way but understanding of My Word. To know My character is to know how I speak and act. If you understand this, you will not be swept away by the many doctrines of men and demons. My sheep hear My voice and will not follow that of another. I have not hidden Myself from you, nor have I taken away My Spirit. Stop, look, listen, for I am ever-present, speaking, directing, and loving you.  I Kings 19:11b-12, “And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake, a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.” NKJV

2/27/2018 Step Up & Out

I have not called My church to isolationism, but to be an ever-expanding light in a world of darkness. Yes, I have called you to heal the sick, raise the dead, and proclaim the Good News to all, discipling them in Me.  Step up and step out! You are the light of the world, and if you will come together as one, as I am praying, it will be a light that will be seen by all, unable to be shrouded and extinguished by darkness, that glorifies Me. Matt. 5:14-16, “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they will see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

2/26/2018 Let Them See You’ve Been with Me

What I can accomplish through you is not as important at this moment as what I want to accomplish in you.  The outward manifestation of My glory is the result of an inward transformation directed by the Spirit. When your desires for My Kingdom come into alignment with My own and are coupled with a purity of heart that directs your motives, then that which has been done in you will bring about a fluidity with the Spirit that can’t help but move through you, resulting in the miraculous. It is my desire to have a bride that the world recognizes has been with Me. Acts 4:13-14, “Now as they observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed and began to recognize them as having been with Jesus. And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they had nothing to say in reply.” NASB

2/23/2018 Possess Your Promise

It is time for you to possess the promise! It is time to step out of your wilderness and cross to the other side. You were meant to live victoriously! I desire to give you a place of permanence, but if you would procure the promise, you must fight for it. Fight to move beyond the desert place into the land I would give you. Yes, there may be giants in the land, but I have already given them into your hand. Go and possess your promise! Josh. 1: 2-3, “Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, cross this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them, to the sons of Israel. Every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you, just as I spoke to Moses.”

2/22/2018 Stir Up Your Gifts

Stir up the gifts and talents I’ve given to you, even the ones that have lain dormant. Stir them up! For My Spirit is moving across the world to stir the hearts of man and you have been given these gifts in anticipation of your participation in what I am doing. The dream you held in your heart was for a season and that season is upon you. Stir up what I’ve put within you from the foundations of the world and exercise it. For such a time as this, you are here. 2 Tim. 1:6, “For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God that is in you through the laying on of my hands.”

2/21/2018 Pray in the Spirit

Power can be realized in your prayers and life can issue forth from your mouth. Train yourself to daily pray in the Spirit and with the Spirit. The Spirit brings life and truth, comprehending all things and understanding the will of the Father. When you pray in the Spirit, there is an automatic agreement between heaven and earth. Therefore, I said to pray in the Spirit always. It is in Him that the sword is wielded against the enemy, and doing so releases the miraculous, for it is His word of life you speak into the spirit realm that can then touch the situations on earth, bringing them into alignment with the will of heaven. Eph. 6:17-18, “And take the helmet of deliverance; along with the sword given by the Spirit, that is the Word of God; as you pray at all times, with all kinds of prayers and requests, in the Spirit, vigilantly and persistently, for all God’s people.” CJB

2/20/2018 Avoid Building Stumbling Blocks

You cannot advance in the plans and purposes of the Spirit and think and act on the carnal and profane. By doing so you only create stumbling blocks to moving forward for yourself and others. I am holy, My Spirit is holy, and you are to be holy. You must renew your mind, setting it on things above, and seeing things from a heavenly perspective. Pray that your eyes will be open to what seems immaterial in the flesh that is of eternal consequence. Both your actions and reactions must be of the Spirit. Be thoughtful and cognizant of My Spirit in all things, so that rebuke is unnecessary. Matt. 16:23, “But Jesus turned His back on Peter, saying, ‘Get behind Me, Satan! You are an obstacle in My path, because you are thinking from a human perspective, not from God’s perspective.’”

2/19/2018 Raise the Standard

When the enemy attempts to enter your situation, allow My Spirit to arise mightily within you to lift the standard of My victory. This is the life of the Spirit empowered: not that the enemy does not come, but that when he does, he is confronted at once with the standard against which he cannot compete – My blood. Let this be your practiced response until it is autonomic with you. As you do, you will find that your victories outnumber your defeats and triumphal living has become your norm. Is. 59:19, “So they shall fear the Name of the LORD from the west, and His glory from the rising sun; when the enemy comes in like a flood the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.” NKJV

2/16/2018 Choose to Soak

Make the choice to soak in My presence and My Word. Those who are saturated in My Word will have a better grip on what the river of My Spirit is bringing, and it will be easier for them to grasp what I am doing. For I am going to pour out My Spirit on all flesh. Yes, I said I would, and I have already begun. It will begin as a trickle from the headwaters of My mountain and increase as it descends from Me. Those already acclimated to the rain of My Spirit won’t be stunned when it is poured out and will be able to freely move in what I am doing in My church and in the earth. Joel 2:23, 28, “So rejoice O Sons of Zion, And be glad in the LORD your God; for He has given you the early rain for your vindication. And He has poured down for you the rain, the early and latter rain as before…It will come about after this that I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.”

2/15/2018 My Voice

My voice is going to become your constant companion. No longer will you strive to hear from Me but hearing Me will be the norm. Not only will you hear, but the Holy Spirit will give you understanding and you will step forth boldly in obedience. You have felt the constraints of your own limitations, but now you will walk in the freedom of My boundless sufficiency. Ps. 29, “Ascribe to the LORD, o sons of the mighty, Ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His Name; Worship the LORD in holy array. The voice of the LORD is upon the waters; the God of glory thunders, the LORD is over many waters. The voice of the LORD is powerful, the voice of the LORD is majestic. The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars…the voice of the LORD hews out flames of fire. The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness…The voice of the LORD makes the deer to calve and strips the forests bare, and in His temple everything says, “Glory!” The LORD sat as King at the flood; Yes, the LORD sits as King forever. The LORD will give strength to His people; the LORD will bless His people with peace.”
