10/31/2018 A New Power

“Is there anything of which it can be said, ‘See, this is new’?”[Ecc. 1:10a] I answer, yes, indeed – I can! Behold I am working and performing a new thing for My people individually and corporately. I am preparing divine opportunities and doors for you to walk through. Do not fear what is unfamiliar, for what I am doing in and for you is a fresh move of My Spirit.  Who says I do not move “that” way through you? I am God! My Bride will arise in a new power with new influence manifested in signs and wonders that will astound the world, and I will be glorified. Is. 43:18-19a, “Do not remember the former things, nor consider the days of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it?” NKJV

10/30/2018 Walk Forward in Hope

I have called you to take a step of faith and walk confidently into your future. Let your step of faith be one taken in hope, not doubt. The enemy has attempted to rob your future by causing you to question the direction I have determined. Make no mistake – it is I who have made the decision, not man, though he is an instrument. I am the One who builds up and tears down. Walk forward full of hope, convinced of My ability to speak to you, to position you, and guide you. What you see as a setback is actually catapulting you to a place of triumph, and though you’re in pain, it will last only the night, as My purposes are established in you. Phil. 3:12b-14, “I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things that are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” NKJV

10/29/2018 My Rain is Falling

The rain of My Spirit is falling. It is falling and will clear away that which is of the flesh so that a proper reflection of Me can be seen through My people. I am sending the rain on My people that My Word might be accomplished in them. For those who willingly submit to the cleansing process, it will seem a soft and gentle rain, but for those who will not, it will seem pounding and harsh. Give yourself over fully to the work of My Spirit in you, and learn to dance in the rain, for it is the rain that will cause new life to spring up in the desert places of your soul. Is. 55:10-11, “For as the rain comes down, and the  snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater; so shall My Word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” NKJV

10/26/2018 The Great Exchanger

I am the Great Exchanger – My life for yours, My joy for your pain, My wholeness for your brokenness. I will take your bitterness and give you sweet and exchange your weariness for rest. Let Me take what the enemy meant for evil and work it for your good. Let me exchange what is filthy and soiled, for that which is clean and pure. In exchange for the lies you feasted on, I invite you to come and partake of all that I am – Truth and Love beyond your wildest dreams. There is no interest charged or strings attached, only take the step and come. I have such good in store for you. Rom. 8:31b-32, “If God be for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” NKJV

10/24/2018 The Fragrance of Heaven on Earth

What do your motivations and actions smell like when they ascend to My throne? Are they a stench in My nose or a sweet fragrance I want to bask in? Anything of self stinks, like garbage on fire, only suited for the sewer, but oh, the alluring smell of a spirit transformed by Mine, humble and contrite. It is a beautiful incense that fills heaven, drawing My attention. Judge yourself, knowing that what is released in heaven is also released in the earth. Endeavor in all that you do to live a life that perfumes both, creating an atmosphere for My glory. 2 Cor. 2:14-15, “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.” NKJV

10/23/2018 Wisdom in Your Pace

You live in time. You alone can set the pace of your life. Be careful to set it so as to complete the race victoriously. You cannot push yourself to the limit all the time. If you will heed the voice of My Spirit, you will know when to accelerate and when to decelerate. You will know when to rest and when to rise and run – both should be done purposefully. I am not a harsh taskmaster that requires My Children to work at a feverish level, leaving them worn and unable to enjoy the benefits of My Kingdom. Set your pace that you may enjoy others who are running alongside you. Teach those younger than yourself the importance of relationship and rest. You will enjoy your journey more if you will trust Me and use wisdom in your pace. I Cor. 9:24-27, “Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it for a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.” NKJV

10/22/2018 Vigilance in Temptation

Be vigilant about not allowing the temptation of the mind to be made manifest in action. My mercy and My judgment exist side-by-side. I judge in loving-kindness, yet My judgment is according to your ways and works. Take captive all of your thoughts, discerning what is true and releasing those that are not in obedience to Me. Choose to think on what is of Me, and let your works be those that I have planned for you. I will always lead you in the way everlasting. Ps. 139:23-24, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends You, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.” NLT

10/19/2018 Focus on Today

Focus on what is before you this day. Don’t bring forward what is behind you, and what is yet to be, you cannot affect unless you move within the present. To worry over either is a waste of this day I have made and fashioned for you. Use wisely what I have gifted you – be joyful, be productive, be My representative in the world, and rest in that I have provided all you require today. I’m your Good Father and will do the same tomorrow. Matt. 6:31-34, “Therefore, do not worry saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” NKJV

10/17/2018 Rest in Warfare

In love, I have called you, and in love, I have sustained you. You are not alone. The battles you have fought and the troubles you have endured have strengthened you, making your spirit unbreakable as you move in My Spirit, according to My power. When you choose to stop doing things in your own way and choose to live according to the Spirit rather than the flesh, you will be able to rest in the midst of warfare, knowing that I fight for you. Yes, you will have burdens, but it will be much lighter because it is Mine. Matt. 11:28-30, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” NKJV

10/16/2018 Limitless Love Releasing Limitless Possibilities

I am not limited by your limitations. You have attempted to hold Me at arms-length because of your heartache and sin, however, I can do more than you dreamed possible if you will allow it. I won’t ignore your will, My Child, however, I would have you know that I have much more for you. You must choose to press through, releasing your painful memories and hurtful moments of regret to Me. The past cannot be undone, but you can choose to have a new future in Me. My Holy Spirit will help you with this. You can choose to forget what is behind and walk forward with Me and the new friendships I have for you, or you can become resentful and stagnant, removing yourself from productive and healing relationships. Don’t hide away. Don’t limit Me. Forgive, and step into My arms and My limitless love for you. I John 4:9-10, “In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” NKJV
