5/22/2018 Little Foxes

Little foxes spoil the vines – pay attention to them and catch them before the entire vineyard is ruined by their presence. Do not allow even the smallest of offenses to remain in your mind and spirit. An unprotected heart and mind are easily led by the slightest of suggestions and mere shadows, bringing destruction to the tender fruit being cultivated in your life. Be diligent about what you set before your eyes, allow to enter your ears, or exit your mouth. Foxes migrate, and they can move from your mouth to the vineyard of others. 2 Cor. 10:4-6, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.” NKJV

5/21/2018 Plans for You

My plans for you are so much greater than those you hold for yourself. Bring your vision into alignment with My own, and as you do you will find doors open that were previously shut to you. You will find that mountains that were difficult to climb, you now soar above. What I have planned for you is good. What I have planned goes beyond your own future into the next generation. Even My thoughts, which are greater than your own, are to bring you hope. You must choose to come into alignment with what I have planned and work in cooperation with My Spirit, listening and searching for Me in every encounter. Jer. 29:11-13, “’For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,’ says the Lord, ‘thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.’”

5/18/2018 Bring Peace

Many are climbing mountains in their lives not knowing how they will survive the trek, and it is your commission to bring My peace to them. You cannot bring good tidings unless you are willing to go to where they are, and that may require that you, too, climb a mountain and bear another’s burdens. Is that not what I did when I came to you deliver the good news of My love? I took the hill that mankind could not, Golgotha, and left with you My peace. Shod your feet with peace, My child, and start walking, delivering to those where I send you My good news. It is a beautiful sight to see peace entering where chaos and confusion have reigned. Is. 52:7, “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, ‘Your God reigns!’” Rom. 10:15a, “And how shall they preach unless they are sent?” NKJV

5/17/2018 Humility, Revelation, Power

Humility precedes revelation and revelation empowers. I reveal Myself to the pure in heart so that they can live the life of an overcomer. Overcomers outmaneuver the thief who comes to steal and lay waste to their lives because they trust in Me. They leap over barriers that the enemy has purposefully set in their path because they know Me. Overcomers are those who acknowledge Me in all their ways, trusting that My Spirit leads and guides them into all Truth regarding My character and nature, as well as their own circumstances. Learn to walk humbly before Me, allowing Me to lead, and I will bring new revelation that will cause you to rise as an overcomer. Ps. 18:27-29, “For You will save the humble people, but will bring down haughty looks. For You will light My lamp; The LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, by my God I can leap over a wall.” NKJV

5/16/2018 Intimacy with Me

My desire is for an intimacy with you that testifies to My identity. It is an intimacy that transcends momentary experience to become a state of being so that you see as I see, hear as I hear, walk as I walk, and everything you do is an extension of My heart to the world. When your heart consistently beats in unison with My own, you will understand what it means to be transformed by Me, to abide in Me, and be an extension of Me to the world.  It is the power of one. John 17:23, “I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.” I Cor. 6:17, “He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.” NKJV

5/15/2018 Don’t Look Back

Quit looking over your shoulder. Remember Lot’s wife, who looked back when I had called them out of one place into another – for their own good? Regret and longing for what is in the past can prevent you from stepping into the new thing I have for you, even immobilize you to the point of being ineffective. I am doing a new thing, and I desire that you step forth into it with eager expectation, not giving the past power to affect your future. Be bold! Be strong! Be courageous! Don’t look back! Press forward into what I am placing in front of you now. It is for your good! Phil. 3:13-15a, “No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. Let all who are spiritually mature agree on these things.”

5/14/2018

There have been disappointments that have run deep and times of discouragement when you have wondered “Why?” Do not allow these things to turn to bitterness, for I say that I have a better way that I have prepared for you. Be of good courage, for although you do not yet see this way, I will uncover it in its time. Rejoice and be glad even though you do not see, for I AM the God that moves on your behalf to work all things for your good. You love for Me motivates Me, and the work I do with and for you will vindicate you. Deut. 31:8, “And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.” NKJV

5/11/2018 The Beauty of Holiness

Worship Me adorned with holiness. When you clothe yourself with holiness, it declares My glory and reign to the nations. Walking in holiness is your testimony to the world that I am God, and that you are not ashamed to be a true reflection of My image.  My people daring to walk and worship uncompromisingly in holiness before Me is a beautiful sight! Ps. 96:9-10, “Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth. Say among the nations, ‘The LORD reigns; the world also is firmly established, it shall not be moved; He shall judge the peoples righteously.’” NKJV

5/10/2018 Be Full of Faith

There is purpose beyond what you can see at the moment. You must learn to walk by faith, which pulls My eternal work into now’s physical reality. Faith is full of forward momentum, fanning the flames of destiny, providing purpose and meaning to the adventure of your life. Choose to be full of faith. By doing so, you’ll realize you no longer live according to the black and white of your limitations, but by the vast colors of My possibilities. 2 Cor. 5:7, “For we walk by faith, not by sight.”

5/9/2018 Wait

Wait. Wait patiently; wait in peace. Wait on Me and for Me. Wait in expectation. Wait to see the new thing I will do. Wait and do not try to accomplish anything according to the flesh, for all that will be, will come of My Spirit. Wait, I say, for My strengthening power and for My guidance. Wait. Ps. 27:14, Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say on the LORD!” NKJV
