8/14/2018 Worship Me

That which you worship will either be your shame or your glory. Shun all that would cause you to bow at the feet of another and worship Me! The lures of the world are appealing, but in the long run, they will not come to save you in your day of trouble. They are nothing!  I alone am God, who rides the clouds and comes to the rescue of My children. I alone cause the nations of the earth to tremble. Worship Me and let Me be your glory! Jer. 10:6-7, “There is no one like you, ADONAI! You are great, and your name is great and mighty. Who would not fear you, King of the Nations? For it is Your due! – since among all the wise of the nations and among all their royalty, there is no one like you.” CJB

8/13/2018 Rejoice in Me

Rejoice in My grace! Rejoice in My mercy! Rejoice in Me! I am the God who takes pleasure in faithfulness, in graciousness, and truth. I am the holy God who always does what is right. Rejoice in My character and nature, and not your own. Look to Me, rejoice, and testify to My glory at work in your life, for I am the God that gives all that you need.  All life and godliness are found in Me. Jer. 9:23-24, “’The wise man should not boast in his wisdom, the powerful should not boast of his power, the wealthy should not boast of his wealth; instead, let the boaster boast about this: that he understands and knows Me – that I am ADONAI, practicing grace, justice, and righteousness in the land; for in these things I take pleasure,’ says the Lord.” CJB

8/10/2018 Be a Truth Seeker

Seek after truth. Don’t be content with what your ears hear, for there are many who would tickle them to obtain their own desires. If you want the truth, you must pursue Me – the embodiment and Author of Truth. Look for truth and justice within My Word. Let it be the determining factor in all that you hear and observe. For many will fall away because they do not know My Word, nor have they been students of it, but are content with twisted words that hold false hope and promises. This is nothing new. Deception is sometimes so desirable. Just remember – it is the Truth that sets you free. Jer. 5:1, “Roam the streets of Jerusalem, look around and ask in its open spaces; if you can find anyone (if there is anyone!) who acts with justice and seeks the truth. I will pardon her.” CJB

8/9/2018 I Am for You

I am the God who is for you, not against you. There is no road that you travel or circumstance that you are going through that I am not intimately acquainted. I am the God that makes roads straight and plain before you. I am the God that scales mountains to rescue and I am the God that will go to the depths of hell to redeem. I am the God that heals you and the God who calls you by name. Be encouraged that I AM for you. Call unto Me, for I will answer you and show you My salvation. Ps. 50:15, “Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me.” NASB

8/8/2018 Don’t Negotiate

Many are experiencing subtle attacks of the enemy that are meant to wear down your spirit and drag you into a place of despair. The enemy wants you to give up or negotiate a truce that he may maintain a foothold in your life, but I declare that you are on the verge of an incredible breakthrough. Do not negotiate with the enemy to alleviate what is a temporary siege, for I am mighty to save and will come with deliverance in My hand. Indeed, I am on My way, bringing salvation with Me. Ps. 30:10-12, “Hear, O LORD, and have mercy on me; LORD, be my helper! You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, to the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.” NKJV

8/7/2018 Be Patient in Growth

Remember that everything happens in increments. You must learn to crawl before you walk, and toddle before you stride. Be confident that I will not leave you at any stage of development. I am patiently walking alongside you, communicating purpose and vision so that as you mature, you can run with it. It takes a while for a tree to bear fruit – I didn’t curse a sapling. Indeed, it takes perseverance, patience, and wisdom to bring a tree to maturity. I have planted you near the river of living water, now be patient in your own growth, learning the lessons of life, that your life may be abundant and bear fruit. Ps. 1:3, “He shall be like a tree, planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither, and whatever he does shall prosper.” NKJV

8/6/2018 My Treasure

My heart is for people – they are My treasure. When you look at them what do you see? Are you filled with compassion because they have no shepherd? Are you grieved over their imprisonment by sin and angered at the enemy who keeps them bound? The lost are My treasure just as much as the found, and I am seeking them out. Will your eyes connect with theirs amid the masses, and will your hands minister deliverance so that they, too, can share in the abundance of My life? Pray for eyes to see, for a heart of love to respond, for wisdom to do it My way, and endurance to disciple. They are My treasure, and I would have you see the individual worth of each gem that’s been tarnished by the enemy, so they too, can sparkle with brilliance as a child of Mine. Remember, such were some of you. I Cor. 6:11, “And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” ESV

8/3/2018 Created for Eternity

In eternity past, I thought of you, and for eternity future I have planned for you. All that you are experiencing now I am working together for your good – for the future I have in store. Don’t grow discouraged, thinking I am too slow in the formation of your character and gift. This present time that you are living in is but a shadow of what is to come. Enjoy these moments, embracing My work in you and allowing Me to refine you as gold, not only for what is now but for what will be. You are My child, created for eternity. Jer. 29:11, “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.” NKJV

8/2/2018 My Rain is Coming

I am sending My rain. My rain cleanses, refreshes, and revives. It nurtures the ground of people’s souls and causes growth where there was previously none. My rain is coming and for those that have planted, it will produce a harvest. It is a rain that you can dance in, gentle yet steady and complete, saturating everything it touches, causing it to bloom for My glory. My rain of righteousness is coming. Hos. 10:12, “Sow righteousness for yourselves, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the LORD, until He comes and showers His righteousness on you.”

8/1/2018 The Language of Heaven

With Me nothing is impossible. Can’t is not in the vocabulary of heaven. Learn to speak as I speak, learning the language of your Father and act on it. Many hear Me, but do not understand. Many see Me, but do not perceive. Train yourself to hear and understand the language of the kingdom so that you can navigate your life accordingly. It’s a language all can learn – I’ve written it in their hearts – and communication with the Father is the secret to an abundant life that thrives. John 5:19, “Then Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.’”
