11/23/2018 Fall on Me

When you feel as though you are going to fall, fall on Me. You do not need to be ensnared and entrapped by the enemy – there is a way of escape in Me. Submerse yourself in My Word and My love for you, falling into the totality of who I AM. I am the God who leads you out of your Egypt and causes you to walk on the water of your storms. I am the One who shelters you in the rock and sets you upon the rock. Let Me be the rock upon which you fall, for even though there may be brokenness, yet there will be restoration and safety. I Pt. 2:4-6, “And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight of God, you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For this is contained in Scripture: ‘Behold, I lay in Zion a choice stone, a precious corner stone, and he who believes in Him will not be disappointed.’” NASB

11/21/2018 Sheltered in My Ark

As I did with Noah, I will do so again, shielding My people from what is to come. The rain fell on all, but Noah was enclosed by My grace and floated upon the waters in My mercy. I will do the same for you in the day of trouble. Remain faithful; be prepared. Even as Noah built the ark with His own hands at My instruction, be willing to obey My voice even when what I say seems outlandish. I will not leave you to your own devices but provide all the wisdom you need to be more than a survivor – those who belong to Me shall overcome! Ps. 27:5, “For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.” NKJV

11/20/2018 I Am Leading You

Do not fear stepping into My will for you. You have sought to develop a listening ear, you know My voice, now follow it. Yes, some were led where they did not want to go, yet in all of it, I was there, as I am for you. I have given you the boldness and courage to step into this new season, and it is up to you to walk forward. Strengthen yourself in Me and be at peace. I am leading you. Job 23:11-14, “My feet have stayed in His footsteps; I keep to His way without turning aside. I don’t withdraw from His lips’ command; I treasure His words more than my daily food. But He has no equal, so who can change Him? What He desires, He does. He will accomplish what is decreed for me, and He has many plans like this.” CJB

11/19/2018 Obligated to the Covenant

I am searching for those who will stand in the gap on behalf of those that have strayed. I am searching for those that will separate the sacred from the profane and walk before Me in holiness, interceding for those that are lost in their sin. Who will be a beacon of light in a darkened world? Who will stand for Me amid the perversion? My Bride and Church, when will you stand up and fulfill the obligations of your covenant with Me? Marriage is more than the consummation, it is daily choosing to lay down your life for another. I Pt. 4:16-19, “But it is no shame to suffer for being a Christian. Praise God for the privilege of being called by His Name! For the time has come for judgment, and it must begin with God’s household. And if judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God’s Good News? And also, ‘If the righteous are barely saved, what will happen to godless sinners?’ So, if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God, keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for He will never fail you.” NLT

11/16/2018 My Life in You

You struggle so valiantly to live your life, and you wonder why you walk in defeat. Lay your life down and let My Life live through you! My life in you is Spirit-filled, Spirit-infused, Spirit-empowered to overcome. Would you live in victory? Choose My Life. My Life knows nothing of defeat. Apart from Me, you can do nothing. This you know, so why the vain efforts to exist outside of and perform for Me, rather than let My Life move through you? Gal. 2:18-21, “For if I build again those things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in Me; and 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. I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.” NKJV

11/15/2018 Abba’s Here

My Child, I am with you at this moment, fully aware and fully present. Come and let Me love on you; come and let Me wrap you in a blanket of peace. Even now I am cradling you, knowing how fragile you have become. Your cries have been heard and I am preparing all that is necessary for you to grow beyond what has been the cause of your distress. Let Me pour into you My oil and wine, bringing restoration. All is not said and done, and for now, all you need to know is that Abba is here and will bring resolution to your situation. Gal. 4:6-7, “And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, ‘Abba, Father!’ Therefore, you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.” NKJV

11/14/2018 Receive, Then Give

Learn to be a receiver of My presence and purposes so that you may freely give. If you have received grace and mercy, extend it; healing or provision, give it out; power, walk in it – for the anointing breaks the yolk. What you have received of Me is so that you can in turn be an agent of restoration in the lives of others. Matt. 10:8, “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.” NKJV

11/13/2018 Mountains Melt

I have brought you out of your bondage and into a place of promise. I have stepped into your circumstance, and even now the mountains in your life are melting at My presence. What was once dry is being saturated with the rain of My Spirit. Bravely move forward. I know the way that I am taking you. Let My Word be your lamp and your confidence and trust that I am bringing you into a new place. Don’t look back – what was is not what is ahead. Only step forward into the freedom I have provided for you. Judges 5:3-5, “Hear, O kings! Give ear, O princes! I, even I, will sing to the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel. LORD when you went out from Seir, when You marched from the field of Edom, the earth trembled, and the heavens poured, the clouds also poured water; the mountains gushed before the LORD, this Sinai, before the LORD God of Israel.” NKJV

11/12/2018 Dance in the Dawn

You have felt suffocated by the darkness. My Child, look up, and you will see the beginnings of a brilliantly colored new dawning I’ve prepared for you. It is on the horizon and rising above you. Take hope, take courage, for soon it will illuminate all that has trapped you in fear and release the paralysis of your soul. No longer will torment be your companion. I have seen your tears in the night and have sung a song of deliverance over you that has broken the chains that have held you captive. My Child, it’s time to dance in the dawn of your new day! Luke 1:78-79, “Because of the tender mercy of our God, With which the Sunrise from on high shall visit us, TO SHINE UPON THOSE WHO SIT IN DARKNESS AND THE SHADOW OF DEATH, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” NASB

11/9/2018 My Warrior Bride

Just as the children of Israel had to learn to fight, so too, I am allowing battles in your life to teach you to do the same. You have learned strategy, now apply it. I have given you all that you need to be successful against the enemy. Take up the authority that is yours in Me and see if I do not show up to fight alongside you. The battles are fierce, but you are an overcomer. You are My Warrior Bride! Judges 3:1-2, “These are the nations which ADONAI allowed to remain, in order to put to the test all of the people of Isra’el who had not known any of the wars with Canaan. This was only so that the generations of Isra’el who had previously known nothing of war might learn about it.” CJB
