3/8/17 Daily Word

I AM the Lord – righteous, holy, and true.  There is none beside Me.  From before the beginning of the world I AM, and at My Word life is created.  Today, I call forth new life from within you!  I call forth the gifts, talents, and resources that I have allowed to lay dormant, that I placed within you at birth.  What I have hidden, I now call forth into the open.  I am, this day, calling forth a greater manifestation of My anointing from you.  Walk forward in the fear of Me, knowing that for such a time as this I created you.  As you do, My plans for you will begin to unfold in greater clarity.  Only be faithful, and obey.  I Cor. 1:6-9, “Indeed, the testimony about the Messiah has become firmly established in you; so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift and are eagerly awaiting the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ.  He will enable you to hold out until the end and thus be blameless on the Day of our Lord Jesus the Christ – God is trustworthy; it was He who called you into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.”

3/7/2017 Daily Word

“Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered.” Today, I am arising on your behalf.  Today I begin to scatter the enemies that have fought against My beloved ones.  Do not doubt that I am for you, for I will use what the enemy has meant to defeat you as an opportunity to strengthen you and bring glory to Myself.  Remember, I am He who took captivity captive, and the One who frees you.  Refuse to listen to the voice of the flesh and believe, knowing that I am a God of the supernatural, at work even now on your behalf. Ps. 68:20-21, “Blessed be ADONAI!  Every day He bears our burden, does God, our salvation.  Our God is a God who saves; from the Lord our God comes escape from death.”

3/6/2017 Daily Word

You have been wandering in a desert place and, seeing no relief, you have allowed hopelessness a home because you feel I am far off.  But I say to you, don’t be afraid, get up!  I have been with you the entire time.  I have heard your torment.  Get up from where you’ve been wandering.  Lift up your eyes and look!  See, I have provided wells in the midst of your desert from which you can drink of living water.  Allow this water to refresh and encourage you, for I have plans for you, but you must endure the desert a little while longer to reach the place of promise.  Let My Word be your compass, guiding you past the place where you are into the future I have for you.  Ps. 25:4-6, “Make me know Your ways, ADONAI, teach me Your paths.  Guide me in Your truth, and teach me; for You are the God who saves me, my hope is in You all day long.  Remember Your compassion and grace, ADONAI; for these are ages old.”

3/3/2017 Daily Word

The purpose of My promise is that in and through your blessing, My Kingdom is multiplied. Though My gift is small in your eyes, it is but a seed that when planted will grow into a mighty tree under which many will find shade and rest from the battle.  For I have already placed within you everything necessary for growth.  You have been hidden away, but in this hiding place you have been establishing strong, healthy roots that will ground you. You are now at an important stage, for the sapling has come forth, and the enemy seeks to rip uproot you.  I will not allow that to happen, so stand firm.  Growth will now emerge quickly as I shower down My rain upon you.  Be encouraged that where you are now is not where you will end up, but this time is necessary for your growth.  Jer. 17:7-8, “Blessed is the man who trusts in ADONAI, ADONAI will be his security.  He will be like a tree planted near water; it spreads out its roots by the river; it does not notice when heat comes; and its foliage is luxuriant; it is not anxious in a year of drought but keeps on yielding fruit.”

3/2/2017 Daily Word

Mighty to save, am I!  I AM able to do exceedingly above what you have asked!  You have said in your heart, “If only You would just…I could at least…”  I say I AM going to do more than just, so that you can do more than your least!  You are going to thrive in Me!  Do not listen to the proud boasting of the enemy, who says your life and ministry are nothing!  Have faith and believe, for I AM calling you forth out of this place, and your life and ministry will prosper, and you will do more than you’ve done before.  Many will say, “Is this the same person?”  No!  You will not be the same – you will come forth My mighty victor; a great overcomer able to speak deliverance over others. You are Mine and My purpose will be fulfilled in you!  Ps. 91:14-16, “Because he loves Me, I will rescue him; because he knows My name, I will protect him.  He will call on Me, and I will answer him.  I will be with him when he is in trouble.  I will extricate him and bring him honor.  I will satisfy him with long life and show him My salvation.”

A specific word, for a specific person from the Lord:

You have surrendered some land in order to keep peace among your brethren, but I say that I have given you that land, and you will recover all.  For the cause of unity, you have given up portions of the promise I made to you, and it has not gone unnoticed.  Because you have loved even as I loved, I will restore, and not just in part, but in whole.  As I temporarily exchanged the glory of heaven for earth to bring redemption, so too, your surrender is temporary.  I have not forgotten, says the Lord.  Gen. 13:14, “ADONAI said to Abram, after Lot had moved away from him, ‘Look all around you from where you are, to the north, the south, the east and the west.  All the land you see I will give you and your descendants forever, and I will make your descendants as numerous as the specks of dust on the earth – so that if a person can count the specks of dust on the earth, then your descendants can be counted.’”

Arise, valiant one!  Deliverance is in My hand for you.  Arise and claim that which I have set apart for your victory.  I have gone before you and defeated your foes.  Don’t doubt, but go forth knowing that I am the force behind your declaration of faith, and I who provides every resource to accomplish My purpose in you. No longer give place to the enemy, but rather walk intentionally forward into your destiny.  Deliverance is yours – be courageous!  Be free!  Ps. 60:12, “Through our God we shall do valiantly: for He it is that shall tread down our enemies.”

Breakthrough is always accompanied by brokenness – something must break in order for you to move past it into a new place.  Where are you broken?  Are you still trying to fix it on your own?  My Child, breakthrough comes to those who humbly admit they are in desperate need of Me to fix the problems of their lives, not to those who proudly persist in trying to do it on their own.  Breakthrough will come as you admit your need and allow Me to intervene.  It is the humble that I lift up.  I know the struggles you are facing and the scars that accompany you wherever you go.  I do not delight in your hurt, but rather ask that you trust Me with it so you can boldly breakthrough into all that I have for you.  I Sam. 2:1-9, “My heart exults in ADONAI!  My dignity has been restored by ADONAI!  I can gloat over my enemies, because of my joy at Your saving me.  No one is as holy as ADONAI because there is none to compare with You, no rock like our God.  Stop your proud boasting!  Don’t let arrogance come from your mouth!  For ADONAI is a God of knowledge, and He appraises actions.  The bows of mighty men are broken, while the humble are armed with strength…He humbles and He exalts, He raises the poor from the dust, lifts up the needy from the trash pile; He gives them a place with the leaders and assigns them seats of honor.  For the earth’s pillars belong to ADONAI; on them He has placed the world.  He will guard the steps of His faithful, but the wicked will be silenced in darkness.  For it is not by strength that a person prevails.”

I will strengthen you to bring forth and birth that which you’ve carried.  Although it has been a long and tedious labor, I will not allow the vision to die, for it is not your vision, but Mine.  You have carried it and are tired and even weakened from it, but know that My strength is made perfect in your weakness.  I will assist you, providing supernatural strength to bring forth all that I have placed in your heart, only do not lose heart.  Keep laboring for the birth is yet for an appointed time, but the time is soon to come.  The pangs are more painful, but  joy will surely be yours in due season.  Is. 66:9, “Would I let the baby break through and not be born? Asks ADONAI.  Would I, who cause the birth, shut the womb? Asks your God.”

2/23/2017 Daily Word

Beloved, I will keep My promise to you. The enemy is on the attack to prevent My purpose from being revealed in and through you.  You must make a choice to drive out the birds that would prey on your sacrifice as you wait for Me. Drive out the demonic activity that would devour you spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally.  Protect the vision that I have placed within your heart by rising up in faith, even when it seems the vision is dead, and I am “slow” in coming.  Trust Me as I prove Myself to be the God that walks between what’s dead to bring forth reproductive power and abundance to every area of your life.  Gen. 15:7-11, “Then He said to him, ‘I am ADONAI, who brought you out from Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land as your possession…Bring Me,’…he brought Him all these…Birds of prey swooped down on the carcasses, but Abram drove them away.”
