3/20/2018 Purity of Heart

Purity of heart requires a refining fire and continual pruning. It is the result of an ongoing process of sanctification that requires willing cooperation and humility, which is necessary if you would come up higher. Yes, those that will endure the process will come forth as gold and with an ability to see Me as I am, as well as see Me at work in the world and in their lives. Those that gaze upon Me can also be assured that I am gazing back at them, and it’s a look of love. Matt. 5:8, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” Ps. 24:3-4a, “Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy hill? He who has clean hands and a pure heart.” NKJV

3/19/2018 Love Beyond

I am coming to intersect your life, and I cherish your welcome. I’ve come to bring life everlasting, however, I’ve also come to challenge false perceptions, address deception, and bring correction. Will you still welcome Me when I begin to put My finger on those things that need to be changed? Understand this: everything that I do is because of My love. My love took Me to the cross, but it also takes Me into deepest places in your heart that you might be free! Luke 19:38, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord; Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” Luke 23:23, “But they were insistent, with loud voices asking that He be crucified. And their voices began to prevail.” NASB

3/16/2018 Keep My Word

Take care to observe and guard My Word in your life. Many voices would attempt to silence what I have spoken, and you must not allow it, for, in the place where My Word is kept, I abide. To shun My Word is to cast Me out. To refuse to accept a part of My Word is to refuse a part of Me, for I am the Word that was at the beginning, and I am still the Word today. Keeping My words affirms your love and is My welcome and invitation to set up residence in you. John 14:23-24, “If anyone love Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him, and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me, does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.”

3/15/2018 Victory Assured

Victories are won in the secret place of hearts prepared for My presence, minds renewed for transformation, and spirits disciplined to the movement of My own. Don’t fear the advance, but move forward victorious, My Child!  Your victory is assured; the battle is already won!  I Cor. 15:57-58, “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”

3/14/2018 The Power of the Cross

My cross, your glory. My cross, your redemption. My cross, your reconciliation. For you, My cross is everything. If you will but throw yourself and the circumstance you find yourself in upon My cross, you will find the salvation you long for. You, however, must choose to allow the cross to work in you, putting to death all that is of the world. The world is death, My cross brings life. This is your boast: the power of My cross to bring forth resurrection life in you! Gal. 6:14, “But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” NKJV

3/13/2018 You’re an Overcomer

You are more than a conqueror because of My life in you! Through Me, you do valiantly! Reject the work of the enemy in your life and declare My Word over it instead. My Word is life, it is power, it is victory! I will strengthen you in your weakness, and I will empower your hands to do that which I have called you to do. Do not give into the lies and desperate attempts of the enemy to thwart My purpose in you. You are an overcomer – speak and walk in this truth! Is. 40: 29-31, “He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

3/12/2018 I Will Do What’s Right

Shall I, the Judge of the all the Earth, not do what is right? Yes, I will do what is right – I cannot do otherwise. Have I not said that you belong to Me? I will not allow you to be trampled underfoot. I will deliver you, and I will show you My salvation. Yes, I have judged already, and I have judged in your favor, My child.  Indeed, I am bringing My love to maturity in you. No longer will there be torment and fear, only My love, perfected in you. Yes, I am doing and will continue to do right by you. When you cannot trust the circumstances, trust Me and My righteous judgments. Ps. 119:160, “The entirety of Your Word is truth, and every one of your righteous judgments endures forever.”

3/9/2018 Healed!

I am the LORD, your God, your Healer. Everything you need to be restored to health as an individual, as a church, and as a nation is found in Me. It is My desire that you walk in wholeness of body, mind, and spirit. It is My desire that you be a conduit of My healing power to those with whom you come in contact. Everything that concerns you is under My feet and must bow to My authority. Do not lose heart or grow discouraged when the enemy attempts to pull you down by such measures, for I, your God, am greater and by My stripes you are healed! 2 Cor. 4:16-18, “Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things that are seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things that are not seen are eternal.”

3/8/2018 Love Well

How do your brothers and sisters respond towards you? Do they feel loved? Does knowing you produce a knowledge of what is right? When I said to love one another, I expected you to do so in a personal, intimate manner that brings rest and reassurance, not unease and angst. Live your life in such a way that people give thanks for it. Live in light of eternity towards your brothers and sisters, bringing refreshment to their hearts. Those that love well are remembered well. Philemon 4-7, “I thank my God every time I mention you in my prayers, Philemon, for I am hearing about your love and commitment to the Lord Yeshua and to all God’s people. I pray that the fellowship based on your commitment will produce full understanding of every good thing that is ours in union with the Messiah. For your love has given me much joy and encouragement. Brother, you have refreshed the hearts of God’s people.” CJB

3/7/2018 Rest in Me

Rest your mind and keep it focused on Me. Don’t allow the worries of tomorrow to envelop you in a shroud of anxiety that prevents you from enjoying what I have gifted you with today. Life is so much more than temporal needs and desires anyway. Rejoice in the relationships you have and My supply for you today. Haven’t I always met tomorrow’s need in a today?  Is. 26:3-4, “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, For in YAH, the LORD, is everlasting strength.” NKJV
