6/29/2018 Eyes to See/Ears to Hear

Open your eyes to see and your ears to hear. I am speaking to you and showing you many things in every way that I have promised. I am already speaking through dreams and visions and many ways to My people. My Word is alive and active. When I speak, act according to what I have spoken whether through repentance, intercession, declaration, or action. Let My Word come alive in you and let the truth that brings freedom to permeate your heart to the point it becomes second nature to act on it. My Kingdom is on the move, and you must cultivate your spiritual senses so that your movement is in alignment with My own. Mark 4:9, “And He said to them, ‘He who has ears to hear, let him hear!’” NKJV

6/28/2018 Let Me Hold You

From the deep places of your heart, you have silently cried for help. You’ve reached out for help, not knowing if I ever heard. I, My Dear One, am here with you. Every tear you’ve cried, every fear you’ve faced and even run from, I have seen. I see you where you are and what I see is beauty beyond compare, worth My life. Come, let Me hold you awhile. Let Me be your shelter and strength. Let Me turn your mourning into dancing, wipe every tear from your eye, and make all things new for you. Ps. 56:8, “You keep track of all my sorrows.  You have collected all my tears in Your bottle. You have recorded each one in Your book.” NLT

6/27/2018 Ready or Not

Once again, I will turn things on their head! Once more, I will turn the world upside down, and the world will know that I alone am God! Am I not the one who breathed life into man and placed the boundaries of the earth? Nations will stand in awe, naked before Me. Choose this day who you will serve, for I will not continually wait for those who vacillate. Be prepared. Be watchful, for I am coming quickly, says the Lord. Rev. 3:10-11, “Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.” NKJV

6/26/2018 Walk in Peace

I understand the pressure you are enduring. Did I not say in these last days there would be trouble? There is a pressing of My people – to perform, to change, to agree or disagree. The greater the pressure, the greater the likelihood of an eruption, yet I have spoken over you peace. A peace that, despite all that is transpiring in your life and around you, I have overcome. You may look around and wonder where the manifestation of your Overcoming Lord is, but I say that you, walking in peace, manifest My presence and glory. When things are exploding around you, walk forward in peace, training yourself to hear My voice amid chaos, leading you through to victory – a conqueror to the end. John 16:33, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” NKJV

6/25/2018 Established in Favor

I have anointed you for a specific purpose in the Kingdom. To seek after another’s gift or to operate beyond your jurisdiction will be of no benefit to you and it will jeopardize your own place of influence. Be careful that you cultivate what I have given to you, acting according to all that I have placed before you. This is your work. This is where My favor dwells. This is where I have promised to establish and bless the work of your hands. Ps. 90:17, “And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands.” NKJV

6/22/2018 Release the Pain

You relive your hurt time and again. Even when you refuse to speak of it, something happens and, like a fire, the rage burns in you once more. You think to douse it by ignoring it, but My child, you must allow the river of My Spirit to flow over it, extinguishing the flame and washing away the residue of hurt you carry. My mercy I have not withheld, and My grace and truth will sustain you. Allow Me to be your helper and rescuer. Let Me heal the pain of the past and turn this trial into a testimony of triumph. Ps. 30:2,7, “I was silent, said nothing, not even good; but my pain kept being stirred up. My heart grew hot within me; whenever I thought of it, the fire burned…Now, Adonai, what am I waiting for? You are my only hope.” CJB

6/21/2018 You are Unique

Don’t despise or neglect the gifts that I have placed within you. I carefully chose them to add color and character to the vessel that is you. Do not look at another and long for what they have – their gifts carry their own burdens. You must seek to cultivate what I have placed in you. You are beautiful, you are unique, you are one of a kind. You are the vessel I need you to be at this time to reveal My glory. Trust that I am the potter, lovingly shaping you-you are My best you, and My best cannot be improved upon. Is. 64:8, “But now, O LORD, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You are our potter; and all we are the work of Your hand.” NKJV

6/20/2018 Follow Me

Trust that I am leading and guiding you. Though the path deviates from the norm and the road you’ve been on carries many footprints, you follow Me. I am taking you in a way less traveled that will prepare you for what I have in store for you. Don’t get caught up in what everyone else is doing in this time. I haven’t called you to follow men, but to be transformed into My likeness. Yes, the way is steeper and more difficult, yet with Me, all things are possible. Ps. 37:23-24, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD; and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the LORD upholds him with His hand.” NKJV

6/19/2018 The Beauty of the Cross

The cross is a place of torment and unimaginable pain, ugly and agonizing. The beauty of the cross is not the cross itself. I take no delight in your suffering any more than I delight in My own. The beauty of the cross is that it bears the marks of your suffering and acts as a witness to your pain, yet you gloriously stand in My resurrection power an overcomer!  Beauty comes when resurrection life reverberates in and through you – when your triumph is assured making your sufferings glow in the aftershocks of sacrifice. Just as My cross has become a symbol of My victory, so your cross can become the symbol of your own. Without the cross, there is no resurrection. Without the resurrection, there is no hope. To take up your cross and follow Me is to be led to the place where death and life collide, and resurrection life not only revives but makes all things new for you.  Matt. 16:24-25, “Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.’” Phil. 3:10, “That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death.” NKJV

6/18/2018 My Pledge to You

My Beloved, My Bride, to you I pledge My unconditional, eternal love. My desire is that each morning you awaken with peace knowing that I will never leave or forsake you, and that I will provide for your every need; that each day you are filled with joy because I rejoice over you with singing. I pledge to you My patience when you are stubborn or are working through the hard issues I reveal, and to be kind when I reveal them. I pledge to walk next to you through all you experience, bringing good out of any evil meant to harm you, because I alone am good. I will be faithful to you alone. I will be gentle with you, holding your heart close to Mine, and when My patience is tried, or My heart is hurt or angered by you, I will be long-suffering with you and readily forgive. For I am your God, you are My people. I am your Groom, and you are My Bride. I freely give and pledge these gifts to you, My Beloved One. Gal. 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” ESV
