7/17/2018 Look Up!

Look up! Look up and observe what I have done in response to your prayer. In the dark, you cried out to Me and in the night hour, you struggled. But the day has come! Dawn is here, and your redemption is near. Do not hold your head in shame or defeat. I have come bringing a garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. Look up, My Child, and see that I have led you through to green pastures past the shadow of death, into the light of life. Ps. 5:2-3, “Give heed to the voice of my cry, my King and my God, for to You I will pray. My voice you shall hear in the morning, O LORD; In the morning I will direct it to You, and I will look up.” NKJV

7/16/2018 Take a Breath

Stop and breathe! Your decisions now will have repercussions that will last far into the future. You must decide whether you will retain control or release it, along with your anxiety to Me and let Me move on your behalf. Ask Me for wisdom and I will give it. Still your heart and mind and listen for My voice. I will lead you in the way you should go, a way that you will not regret in the months ahead – the way of peace and life that provides a future filled with hope. Ps. 16:11, “You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” NKJV

7/13/2018 Foundation of Hope

I AM your Rock – your foundation of hope. Better to wait on Me in a hard place than to easily move forward on your own to certain destruction. Hope, My Child, is the fuel of faith.  Be still before Me. For in awe you will see the fulfillment of the expectations I have given you, and with reverence, you will honor My Name. Ps. 39:7, “And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in You.” NKJV

7/12/2018 Trust Me

Just as you love Me with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, so, too, do I desire that you would trust Me. Your discernment of circumstances does not even compare to the Truth of the situation. I’ve got this, My Child. Don’t fall into the trap of believing a lie and then acting based on partial truth. Trust Me. I will lead you in the way you should go. Is anything too hard for Me? Prov. 3:5, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” NKJV

7/11/2018 Come Into Agreement

My Word is forever settled in heaven. I have spoken over you many precious promises and given you all things that pertain to life and godliness. What remains to be seen is if you will choose to come into agreement with My Word. As you walk through life’s trials, will you succumb to the voices that speak fear and worry, or will you choose to walk according to My Word? The miraculous fulfillment of promises is manifested in those who will come into agreement with heaven, not doubting, but in unwavering belief that I am able and willing to accomplish all I have spoken. Rom. 4:20-21, “He [Abraham] did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.” NKJV

7/10/2018 Now Live

Be present. Show up and now live – in the present, not looking over your shoulder at what has past or to look into what tomorrow brings. Live today. Live triumphantly, allowing the abundance of My life to flow in and through you to those I’ve placed around you now. I will take care of all that concerns you today and all your tomorrows. Rise up and live. The trials of yesterday may remain yet today, but how you live amid them can change as you walk a faith-filled life in Me. Enjoy life by faith that My presence resides in you and is empowering you in the present. Gal. 2:20, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” NKJV

7/9/2018 Be Kind to Yourself

Be kind to yourself, Beloved, and patient, knowing that who you are becoming does not happen overnight. The manifestation of the fruits of My Spirit are just as much for you as they are for your relationships with others. Be gentle with yourself when you fall even as you develop the discipline to bring all things in alignment with My will. Learn to love who I created you to be, faithful to My design, giving yourself permission to be joyful even when others are not. You cannot love your neighbor if you do not love yourself. Choose to walk in peace amid the chaos. When you walk in wholeness and towards yourself, it is a testament to My goodness. Matt. 22:37-40, “Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” NKJV

7/5/2018 Stand on My Word

Stand on My Word. When your world seems to be collapsing, My Word stands firm. It is the Light amid the darkness, the Truth amid many opinions, the Way when you are lost. My Word reveals My heart and My thoughts, which are for you not against you. My Word is your confidence in times of doubt and your anchor during the storm. My Word is Life! Stand having learned to wield it, for it is sharper than any two-edged sword, ready to protect and defend you, allowing you to advance even in adversity. Heb. 4:12-13, “For the Word of God is living and effective and sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as to divide soul, spirit, joints, and marrow; it is a judge of the ideas and thoughts of the heart. No creature is hidden from Him, but all things are naked and exposed to the eyes of Him to whom we must give an account.” HCSB

Trust Me

In your pain and distress, I am present. My character does not change in your circumstances. The same God that walks with you in your joy is the same God that carries you through your hurt. Trust Me to sustain you. Trust Me to part the sea that prevents your progress. Trust Me to provide for you in your wilderness. Trust Me to bring you into your promised land even with giants present. For I am God, and I have set My love upon you even as you have set your love upon Me, and I will keep you throughout your days. Ps. 91:14-16, “Because he is lovingly devoted to Me, I will deliver him; I will exalt him because he knows My name. When he calls out to Me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble. I will rescue him and give him honor. I will satisfy him with a long life and show him My salvation.” HCSB  

7/2/2018 Let Me Reign

Let the reign of My presence be the determining factor of your life. My presence surrounds those who allow Me to be their Sovereign Lord. A king makes judgments and determinations from His throne room. Come before Me, My child. Let My presence calm your heart. Let Me rule in your favor. Let Me pick you up and comfort you and provide you with peace. Live in My presence. Live in My throne room, acknowledging My reign, for I am all you need and provide you with all. Ps. 145:13-20, “Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom; Your rule is for all generations. The LORD is faithful in all His words and gracious in all His actions. The LORD helps all who fall; He raises up all who are oppressed. All eyes look to You, and You give them their food in due time. You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. The LORD is righteous in all His ways and gracious in all His acts. The LORD is near to all who call out to Him, all who call out to Him with integrity. He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him; He hears their cry for help and saves them. The LORD guards all those who love Him, but He destroys all the wicked.” HCSB
