9/24/2018 Speak My Word

Either you will receive My Word and carry it in your heart, listening to what I say, or you will not. This is not difficult to understand. Either you have a heart resolute towards Me or you do not. My Words are given that they may be spoken, and in being spoken prophesy to those around you. Whose words are you receiving and speaking – Mine, or those of the enemy? Which direction is your heart inclined toward – the world or My Kingdom? Whether people listen or not is not your responsibility. What is imperative is that My people are speaking My Word. Receive My Word unto yourself and claim it as your possession. Yes, stand unwaveringly in it, for I have given it to you as a light amid the darkness, a sword amid the battle, and the instrument by which captives are freed. Ez. 3:10-11, “Moreover, He said to me, ‘Son of man, take into your heart all My words which I will speak to you and listen closely. Go to the exiles, to the sons of your people, and speak to them and tell them, whether they listen or not, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD.’” NASB

9/21/2018 Exposure that Heals

Exposure for Healing

I am in the process of exposing the hearts of people. I expose that I might heal. A wound that has been festering only brings death to the bearer and sometimes to those around them if left to itself. In the midst of this exposure, I am pouring out both grace upon those that will submit to the process and repent and judgment upon those who devise wicked things and remain proud of heart.  All is done that I may provide people an opportunity to embrace the freedom and forgiveness they can have in Me. Remember, I came to bring life, and that abundantly. Let me heal the wounds of your heart that you may walk into all the good I have planned for you. John 3:20-21, “For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” NKJV

9/20/2018 Walk Through the Darkness

Your past failures do not dictate future victories. I am a God of covenant relationship, and My mercy is great. Stand up and go forward. The enemy would have you sleep in the dark, but I would have you march through it into the light. Rise up! Don’t allow discouragement and lethargy to prevent your pursuit of My promises to you. Rather go forth knowing that I am going before you, ensuring success. Encourage yourself in My power to deliver My promises into your hand. Ps. 73:26-28, “My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. For indeed those who are far from You shall perish; You have destroyed all those who desert You for harlotry. But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all Your works.” NKJV

9/19/2018 Prepare to Dance

Many are facing daunting situations that require strategies from My heart. Listen and act according to all I tell you, for I am a creative God whose thoughts are above your own. What the enemy meant for destruction, I am going to turn back on his own head and use it to bring about your deliverance. Yes, there will even be spoils for you to claim. Take courage, My Child! Already I have dispatched the hosts of heaven to make a way for you even though the enemy gloats that he has backed you into a corner. Prepare to dance to the music of heaven as you celebrate this coming victory! Deut. 28:7-8, “The LORD will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. The LORD will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you.” NKJV

9/18/2018 Beyond the Veil

I am inviting you to step beyond the veil. Yes, I tore it, but many hesitate to step past the rubble of what I have torn down and enter the place of My presence, into My glory. So many choose to keep Me at a comfortable distance, not permitting Me to rebuild what has been shattered, when from the beginning of time I have desired to draw you close in fellowship and restore you.  Take a step forward and consciously choose to walk in intimacy with Me – a place of covenant relationship where I will reveal My glory to you, even as I perfect all that concerns you. I Pt. 5:10, “May the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.” NKJV

9/17/2018 For Those Who Feel Exiled

Though you feel you’re in a place of exile, yet in this very place My hand is upon you; My Spirit is with you. In this place, I will open up the heavens that your eyes may see. In this place that seems so foreign to what you believed was My plan, I am going to grant you vision. Not just of plans and purposes, but visions of Me. As you gain a revelation of Me, things will begin to fall into proper alignment and you will gain perspective and a greater understanding of this season you find yourself in. Don’t give up; look up! Ez. 1:1b, 3, “As I was among the captives by the River Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God…the word of the LORD came expressly to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the River Chebar; and the hand of the LORD was upon him there.” NKJV

9/14/2018 I Uphold You

If heaven is My throne and earth is My footstool; if I uphold you by My righteous right hand and My Word sustains you, what have you to fear? When was the last time you meditated on the My greatness and the enormity of My power? There is nothing that I cannot do. I AM God! I Am the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Resist the urge to diminish Me to a size you can comprehend and pray that you may understand the largeness of Me in your life. You are finite, I am infinite. There is nothing too hard for Me, and My love for you is unconditional. Allow that to sink into your spirit. That the God of the Universe loves you! Let it banish all fear. You are held in the palm of the Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent One, and I won’t let you go! Job 42:2-6, “I know that You can do everything, that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted. [You asked,] ‘Who is this, hiding counsel, without having knowledge?’ Yes, I spoke without understanding, of wonders far beyond me, which I didn’t know. Please listen, and I will speak. [You said,], ‘I will ask questions; and you give Me answers’ – I had heard about You with my ears, but now my eyes see You; therefore I detest [myself] and repent in dust and ashes.” CJB

9/13/2018 Circumcision of the Heart

It is time to circumcise your heart and remove all that is unnecessary to bring forth life. Nothing that is excess flesh is to remain. You must allow all that has been consecrated by Me to flow forth out of you and crucify that which has not. Take time to allow yourself to heal. This is necessary in order that you may procure the promise. You have been traveling in a desert place, but now you are about to enter into what I have promised – a holy place of worship that will sustain you during the battles to come. Do not deceive yourself into thinking that the promise comes without a fight. Rather go forth, knowing that I am going ahead of you. As you discern the times, knowing when to be silent and when to shout, and act accordingly, walls that seemed insurmountable before are going to fall because I have chosen to inhabit your praise and reward your trust in Me. Allow to roll off of you the distractions and seeming defeats of the past. Allow your shame to disintegrate in My holy and redemptive presence. Feast on My provision for you, and trust that you will no longer just be surviving, but conquering and thriving in My will. It is a new season and a new time for you. Phil. 3:3, “For we are the circumcision, who worship by the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh.” ESV

9/12/2018 The God Who Sees

When the battle rages, be still. Sink into Me and allow yourself to relax. Let go and cease your struggling. Let all that I have revealed of Myself, of My character and My nature, be your comfort and confidence. Let the awe of who I am activate your faith, increasing your awareness of the greatness of My presence in your now. The expected end of all you are experiencing is a hope-filled future. Rest in My peace and the knowledge that I am the God who will see to all that concerns you, in the battle and in the desert, as well as the fertile valley. Gen. 16:13, “So she called the name of the LORD who spoke to her, ‘You are a God of seeing,’ for she said, ‘Truly here I have seen him who looks after me.’” ESV

9/11/2018 Crossing Over

Though the enemy is coming in like a flood, even though an army is in pursuit, even though the Jordan is overflowing its banks, yet I will bring you through. I am the God who raises a standard, who brings to naught the work of the enemy and holds back the overwhelming flood. I am the God who not only holds back the rivers and seas, but I am the God who brings forth the wind of My Spirit that ensures you will cross over on dry land into My promises. There will be no mud for you to sink into, nor residue on your feet, for I have gone before you to prepare the way. You are a child of the covenant, and no weapon formed against you, no design of man or the enemy will prosper against My Beloved!  Step forward in faith even in the midst of raging waters and you will not only see them part but part that you may cross over on dry ground! For now, is the time of harvest! Joshua 3:14-17, “So the people left to cross the Jordan…and the priests carrying the ark had waded into the water (for throughout harvest season the Jordan overflows its banks), the water upstream stood piled up like an embankment…so that the water flowing downstream…was completely cut off…and the people crossed over right by Jericho. The priests carrying the ark for the covenant of ADONAI stood fast on dry ground in the middle of the Jordan, while all Israel crossed on dry ground until the entire nation had finished crossing the Jordan.” CJB
