4/16/2018 Revelation of Me

You have prayed to know My heart and to understand My ways, not just My acts. For those who have eyes to see and are willing to look, My Spirit is giving the revelation of both. Revelation into the heart of the Father is a gift that is given to those who will treasure it and those who will exemplify and share it. Yes, it is a gift for all believers, and with it comes great responsibility. Who would walk in revelatory power from on high? Who would know the desires that flow directly from My throne and then move in cooperation with My Spirit to see My will done on earth as it is in heaven? Oh, I long to share with and show you My heart! The preparations of My heart towards you are great and My ways to accomplish them are greater than your own. I Cor. 2:9-12, “But as it is written: ‘What no eye has seen, and no ear has heard, and what has never come into a man’s heart, is what God has prepared for those who love Him.’ Now God has revealed them to us by the Spirit, for the Spirit searches everything, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the concerns of a man except the spirit of the man that is in him? In the same way, no one knows the concerns of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, in order to know what has been freely given to us by God.” HCSB

4/13/2018 Breathe Life

It is I who breathe and cause life to come about, from dirt to dry bones, and it is I who will once more blow upon the Earth to revive My people. I am breathing new life into My church to bring about an awakening. Awaken from your slumber, breathing My life into all around you! Let your life be a conduit of Mine to those that are surrounded by death and fan the flame of eternity that I have already placed within their hearts so that every tongue, tribe, and nation will praise Me!  Acts 17:24-28, “The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands, nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’” NASB

4/12/2018 Restoration is Coming

Restoration is imminent and has even now come! It is not in My nature to leave incomplete that which I have started. For those who have been broken by life circumstances or those that have faithfully persevered even when it seemed hopeless, I am reviving, renewing and restoring. No one will be able to say that the enemy was able to steal anything their God didn’t restore, or that I did not recreate new life for those who came to Me shattered. I AM GOD! For those that have spiritually miscarried, I will cause to birth newness of life in multiples. I will turn back on the enemy’s head the evil he meant for you. Expect it, for I have decreed it, and will I not do it? I Sam. 2:2-4, 9-10, “There is no one holy like the Lord, Indeed there is no one besides You; Nor is there any rock like our God. Boast no more so very proudly, Do not let arrogance come out of your mouth; For the Lord is a God of knowledge, And with Him actions are weighed. The bows of the mighty are shattered, But the feeble gird on strength…He keeps the feet of His godly ones, But the wicked ones are silenced in darkness; For not by might shall man prevail. Those who contend with the LORD will be shattered; Against them He will thunder in the heavens, The LORD will judge the ends of the earth, And He will give strength to His king, And will exalt the horn of His anointed.”  

4/11/2018 Consecrate Yourselves

I am calling My church to consecrate themselves unto Me. Be holy, for I am holy. Don’t fear being set apart for Me and My purposes. Yes, there will be persecution, for you are not above your Master. However, choosing to live a holy life empowered by My Spirit is infinitely better than choosing a life of continual compromise that cannot distinguish between good and evil. One brings life, the other death. Choose life – choose Me. Rom. 6:11-13, “Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore, do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.” NASB

4/10/2018 Come to Me!

Come to Me! It is no small thing that I, the God of the Universe, beckon you to Myself. From the foundations of the earth, I called you to Me. Are you weary and tired? Come to Me! Are you searching for answers that seem elusive at best? Come to Me! Do you feel as though life has let you down? Come to Me! I AM your hiding place, your answer, your abundance! My heart yearns for you, and I have placed in your heart a yearning for Me that will not be satisfied until you come to the end of yourself and approach Me as you are and allow Me to act on your behalf as I AM – God! Is. 55:1-3a, “Come, everyone who is thirsty, come to the waters; and you without money, come, buy, and eat! Come, buy wine and milk, without money and without cost! Why do you spend money on what is not food, and wages on what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and you will enjoy the choicest of foods. Pay attention and come to Me; listen, so that you will live.”

4/9/2018 Living in Grace

My grace is more than sufficient. It is because of My grace that you can humble yourself before Me, knowing that I am with you and for you. A life full of My grace is a life lived in submission to Me; it is a life that has learned the secret of drawing close to Me and allowing Me to operate through it. It is My love and great desire to see you overcome that prompts Me to pour out even more grace upon you. Don’t be deceived. My grace submits to My Name and causes the enemy to hide from My presence in your life. Successful opposition of the enemy only comes about when a life has received and operates in My grace, posturing itself in humility before Me. Those that bow before Me will always be positioned as overcomers.  James 4:5-8, “Do you think that the Scripture says in vain, ‘The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously’? But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: ‘God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”

4/6/2018 Wait and Receive

There is a waiting and receiving that must take place to see My promise worked out in your life. You cannot pray for the promise and then work it out for yourself. You must learn to wait. There is always a time of growth from the time a promise is planted and germinates to the time of its fulfillment. Wait with hope. Wait in faith, knowing that I am faithful to perform My Word. Then once My promise comes, do not refuse to receive and take hold of it because it does not come in the way you expected. Rejoice, and grab hold of it, for within the promise are the seeds of multiplication for Kingdom purposes that are above and beyond what you ever thought to ask, including power from on high to see those purposes accomplished. Acts 1:4, 8, “Gathering them together, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, ‘Which,’ He said, “you heard of from Me…but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”

4/5/2018 Beauty for Ashes

I am the God who gives beauty for ashes and turns mourning to dancing. You must choose, though, to walk into the beauty and begin the dance. The things that have brought you sadness and caused you to cloak yourself with sackcloth and ashes are in the past. You must make the choice to exchange it for the garments of praise I’ve provided you. Leave your heaviness with Me, and accept what I have offered you. To see you smile would delight Me. Is. 61:3, “To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

4/4/2018 Set a Watch

Keep a watch over the entrances and exits to your spirit. What you allow into your spirit visually and audibly may come out verbally and tactilely. Remember that I have granted you the power to bind and loose, and that is done through the power of the tongue. You do not want to release something that is contrary to My Spirit because you allowed the enemy to gain a foothold. Practice spiritual discernment over your own heart and mind, rapidly shutting the door on what does not align with the My Word or the Spirit of God. Come into agreement with My Word by speaking it out and you will find that heaven moves in accordance with it. Ps. 141:3, “Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.”

4/3/2018 Sacrificial Love

Love and live as I did, sacrificially. It is a lifestyle of laying down yourself so that others might see Me. It is being moved with compassion for the many who are wandering around the world with no knowledge of Me. It is the life of one who quietly slips away to enjoy the presence of the Father, saying what He says, doing what He does. It is a life of passionate perseverance that counts the cost at every turn and chooses to pay it so that the Father is glorified. I John 3:16, “We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.”
