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

5/8/2018 A Loving Father

My desire is that My children share My delight in our relationship, and as a loving Father to freely give whatever is asked in accordance with My perfect will. I am not an abusive Father ignoring your cries and needs. It is My desire that you ask Me understanding My character and nature and knowing I have your very best interests in mind. I am always acting to perform My Word over you, providing all things that pertain to life and godliness. Trust My love for you! Matt. 7:11, “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!”

5/7/2018 A Word on Division

I have been separating and marking boundaries from the very beginning of creation, and that separation I have called good. Both unity and division have their place in My Kingdom. You must learn to distinguish necessary divisions (flesh and spirit), as well as between good things (work and rest), and set healthy boundaries. My people die from lack of this knowledge. They have blurred the boundaries that distinguish abundance of life from certain death, My Kingdom from this world. Not everything was meant to coexist. Fish were not made to live on land, and if life were attempted outside of water, they would only be fit for consumption.  2 Cor. 6:16-18, “And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said, ‘I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.’ Therefore, ‘Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters,’ says the Lord Almighty.” NKJV

5/4/2018 Choose Peace

Peace is a state of being that must be chosen. It was the gift I chose to leave with you, even prior to the pouring out of My Holy Spirit. Only like every gift, you must accept it. Peace is the guard that stands as sentry before your heart and mind. If you will but allow it, peace will deflect the attacks of the enemy. You must choose which will gain entry to your heart: My peace that preserves you or anxiety, worry, and fear that assault you. Choose to BE at and in peace. Phil. 4:6-7, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” NASB

5/3/2018 Restoration and Recovery

Victory is assured. Victory is imminent. Only, as David did, wait for the movement of the heavenly hosts. For I have sent them out before you, and you are to advance in the way I have sent them. This is not a time to lean on your own understanding or to concern yourself with battle. You will recover what was stolen and more. I have decreed a time of restitution and recovery, and My Word goes forth as a pillar and cannot be shaken! 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.”

5/2/2018 The Privilege of Sonship

It is important that you allow My Spirit to inform the flesh, and you don’t allow the flesh to try to manipulate the Spirit – that is impossible. There are decisions that you will face soon that will determine destiny, and it is vital that you be walking according to My Spirit so that you will not miss what I want to do in and through you. Being led by the Spirit is the privilege of sonship. A son discerns and knows the will of the Father and walks in it willingly. Being led by the flesh will only lead you into bondage. True destiny in Me always brings you to a place of freedom because it is grounded in Truth. Rom. 8:14-17, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, ‘Abba, Father.’ The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs – heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.” NKJV

5/1/2018 New Mercies

Be kind and compassionate towards yourself. Just as My mercies are new every morning, be merciful towards yourself, and cease heaping condemnation upon yourself for what was done in the past. My blood has covered it, and sin, when dwelt upon, can infect and affect you before you’ve even begun your day. If I, the God of the Universe, grant mercy afresh, who are you to withhold it, even from yourself? Awaken each morning as the birds of the air, with a song in your heart! It is a new day for you, and My love and faithfulness towards you endure! Lam. 3:22-26, “Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘Therefore I hope in Him!’ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him. It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.” NKJV
