Always aim to do My will.  Love people purely, believing that I am able to save to the uttermost and knowing that you follow My lead by walking in compassion.  So many have become sidetracked from what I intended for them by falling into disputes that do not bring Me glory or benefit My Kingdom and abandoning covenant with their own brethren made in My image and for whom I died.  How can the world know My love, if My church does not show it?  This is My will – that you love without compromise, just as I have loved you.  I Tim. 1:11-12, “Promote love from a clean heart, from a good conscience and from sincere trust.  Some, by aiming amiss, have wandered off into fruitless discussion.”

Resist the urge to question your call based upon your performance or the results.  Your call had nothing to do with your abilities, for before you were born, I had called you.  Before you ever could, I had determined you would. You were chosen by Me.  It has never been about your own strength, but rather My strength being allowed to manifest through you.  Walk forward confidently, resting in the knowledge that you are exactly where I want you for such a time as this, and your faithful obedience will reap a harvest that is even now developing roots unseen that will bear eternal fruit.  Is. 49:1b, “ADONAI called me from the womb; before I was born, He had spoken my name.”

Up close all you may see is beautiful, confounding chaos, but when you choose to step back and look, you will see patterns indicative of My design.  What I do is not automatically apparent, and often it appears My hand has no part in it. However, when viewed from the perspective of eternity My handiwork is obvious.  You cannot look at everything from your own limited viewpoint.  The canvas on which I paint is too large for you to comprehend what I am doing or what I intend at this point. There are yet connections to be made, and in due time I will reveal to you the masterpiece upon which I work.  For now, learn to be content with the mere stroke before you, for in it is the color and texture of heaven.  Ps. 104:1, 24, “Bless the LORD, my soul!  LORD, my God, You are very great; You are clothed with glory and majesty, wrapped in light as with a robe.  You spread out the heavens like a curtain…What variety there is in Your works, LORD!  How many [of them there are]!  In wisdom You have made them all; the earth is full of Your creations.”

6/9/2017 Daily Word

Many of you are experiencing times of stretching, even to the point of believing your prayers have gone unheeded in Heaven.  Rest assured that I have heard your cry. However, I have called you to a higher place that requires you to walk through a flaming fire, producing a patience in you that is indicative of your maturity in Me.  Your maturity will enable you to walk in new authority.  I have declared a time of dynamic growth and promotion for those that will endure the flames of testing.  Endurance is paramount to the new assignment I am unleashing in the earth.  Remain steadfast, My child, and look forward, knowing that this fire lasts for a moment, but the results will be eternal.  James 1:2-4, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.  Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”

6/8/2017 Daily Word

Will you be the one that declares vision over those that dwell in doubt?  Can your faith reside beside those who need revelation and not only survive, but thrive?  I am calling forth greater faith amongst My people to bring light to those that dwell in darkness!  It is a faith that declares mountains move, paths straighten, and people be healed and set free! It is a faith that speaks revelation and eyes be opened to Truth!  Don’t cower in the shadows of darkness, but come forth radiating faith to those around you.  Watch, for I will bring forth Life from your faith, and those that have doubted will have the opportunity to touch Me and be changed.  Jude, vs. 20-23, “But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourself in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.  Be merciful to those who doubt.”

6/7/2017 Daily Word

Learn to curb the appetite of your soul.  Your desires can hinder you from walking in the fullness of what I have planned for you, because the soul aches for that which will feed its self-centeredness.  You must control it, bringing it into alignment with My Spirit, submitting your word to My Word.  The more you do so, the more you will find that your desires have changed from a fleshly to a holy nature.  And this is the great lie of the soul, that holiness is unattainable and will detract from your life.  This is not so.  My Spirit not only enables the holy life, but brings forth an abundance of life you’ve yet to experience.  2 Cor. 7:1, “My dear friends, since we have these promises, let us purify ourselves from everything that can defile either body or spirit, and strive to be completely holy, out of reverence for God.”

The sounding of the alarm is not so that you can hide, burying your head in the sand.  It sounds so that you will know where to run to when the attack comes.  You must boldly confront the enemy in My might.  Fear has tricked you into thinking that retreat is the better way, but you are designed to meet challenges.  Even your cells are designed to race towards and evict that which would bring you harm.  When next you hear the alarm in your own life or within My Body, run towards the sound of the trumpet, clothed in My armor with the sword of My Spirit drawn, for that is where I, the Commander of the Hosts of Heaven will be, as both your refuge and your strength.  Ps. 144:1-2a, “Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle – my lovingkindness and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer, my shield and the One in whom I take refuge.”

6/5/2017 Daily Word

Despair is the antithesis of hope. Don’t allow unfulfilled expectation to destroy your spirit. I understand your disappointment that things are not proceeding according to your plan, even to the point of questioning where you go from here. Let your hope in Me be your anchor.  In the end, all will be fulfilled according to My desire, and your distress will pass.  You will look back at this moment in time and see that this path I’ve allowed you to walk is full of My goodness and grace. You will reap if you faint not.  2 Cor. 4:8-9, “We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed.  We are perplexed, but not driven to despair.  We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God.  We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.”

There have been outside forces that have been a hindrance to what I have called you to do, and you have been faithful to leave them in My hands.  Now I will deal with that which has tried to prevent My purpose from being established in you.  I will no longer allow this struggle to persist, but will avenge you, My child, and swiftly, for the sake of My Kingdom work in you.  Do not fear, do not allow condemnation to arise, for what is done is done by My hand and no other, says the Lord.  Deut. 32:35, “Vengeance and payback are Mine for the time when their foot slips; for the day of their calamity is coming soon, their doom is rushing upon them.”
