There is a fullness to be experienced and lived out in Me.  Seek to be filled, but more so to be full. This is My desire not just for you, but for My church.  Just as there is a fullness in times and cycles, so there is a fullness to be realized in each season.  In the fullness of time I came, full of grace and truth.  Love is the fullness of law, grace is the fullness of My Spirit, truth the plumb line by which they are measured – and all defined in Me.  Let your lives, My Church, be characterized by the same – grace, truth, and love, expressing My fullness to the world.  John 1:14, “The Word became a human being and lived with us, and we saw His Shekinah, the Shekinah of the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth.”  Eph. 1:22-23, “Also, He has put all things under His feet and made Him head over everything for the church, which is His body, the full expression of Him who fills all creation.”

Quickly!  That is how the answers will manifest themselves to your requests.  No longer will it seem as though iron doors and bronze gates stand in the way of answered prayer, but you will ask a thing and it will be done speedily.  You are entering a new season of an open heaven over your life.  Try Me in this, and see if it is not so.  There will be such an outpouring of My Spirit that when you ask in My Name it will be done for you by My Father.  Do not interpret this season as one without trials.  Trials will come and with great ferocity, but as quickly as they come, the answer will manifest itself and you will see great victories because you have entered this new season, says the Lord.  John 16:23-27, “When that day comes, you won’t ask anything of Me!  Yes, indeed!  I tell you that whatever you ask from the Father, He will give you in My Name.  Till now you haven’t asked for anything in My Name.  Keep asking, and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.  I have said these things to you with the help of illustrations; however, a time is coming when I will no longer speak indirectly but will talk about the Father in plain language.  When that day comes, you will ask in My Name.  I am not telling you that I will pray to the Father on your behalf, for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me and have believed that I came from God.”

I know you’re battle-weary.  I’ve seen both the seeming victories and defeats, and I see your face turned toward Me in supplication.  Know that I have heard the longing of your spirit and I am even now releasing ministering angels to bring relief to you in your time of need.  It seems to you as though I have been a long way off, but I have been and will remain ever at your side.  Did I not promise to never leave or forsake you?  Lift up your eyes and remember from whence comes your help.  Your help comes from Me – Maker of heaven and earth.  The God who is, and will ever be, everything for you, and I am the One who even now is hiding you under the shadow of My wings.  Do not fear, you are safe.    Isaiah 46:3b-5, “I have borne you from birth, carried you since the womb.  Till your old age I will be the same – I will carry you until your hair is white.  I have made you, and I will bear you; yes, I will carry and save you.  To whom will you liken and equate Me?  With whom will you compare Me, as if we were similar?”

12/23/2016 Daily Word

I am zealous to accomplish My Word in you.  It is My passion for you that caused My advent, My death, My resurrection, and your restoration.  It is also this love for you that causes Me to eagerly involve Myself in your life, being all that you need Me to be at all times.  Remember that I came for you, and let that knowledge motivate you, giving you rest and peace as you move into this next season of your life.  Is. 9:6-7, “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders.  And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  Of the greatness of His government and peace there will be no end.  He will reign on David’s throne and over His kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever.  The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.”

12/22/2016 Daily Word

Do not be discouraged because of the light My Spirit is shining on the dark places of your heart.  You are experiencing it because I have called you to enter the Way of Holiness.  I have summoned you to this path as preparation for the destiny I have for you, and though it is a difficult way and not for the faint of heart, you have been guided here for the refining process that will bring forth gold and silver from you, rather than hay and stubble.  Take courage, and do not fear.  Those that I love all enter this process, and it is for your ultimate good. Isaiah 35:8-10, “A highway will be there, a way, called the Way of Holiness.  The unclean will not pass over it, but it will be for those whom He guides – fools will not stray along it.  No lion or other beast of prey will be there, travelling on it.  They will not be found there, but the redeemed will go there.  Those ransomed by ADONAI will return and come with singing to Zion, on their heads will be everlasting joy.  They will acquire gladness and joy, while sorrow and sighing will flee.”

12/21/2016 Daily Word

You will reap what you sow, but not everything you want to reap is sown, cared for, and harvested in the same manner.  Ask Me how to go about planting and caring for that which you want to see in the coming year of your life.  I bring forth the harvest, but you are to sow, plant, water, care for it, and bring it in. The victory you have been praying for and has seemed just out of reach, will come as you learn the secret of the spiritual harvest.  Isaiah 28:23-29, “Listen and hear My voice; pay attention, and hear what I say:  Does a farmer sowing keep plowing forever?  Does he never stop breaking up and harrowing his land?  No – when he finishes leveling it, he scatters his dill-seed, sows his cumin, puts wheat in rows, barley where it belongs, and plants buckwheat around the edges; because his God has taught him this, has given him instruction.  Dill must not be threshed with a sledge or cartwheels driven over cumin; rather, dill one beats with a stick and cumin with a flail.  When crushing grain for bread, one doesn’t thresh it forever; one drives the horse and cart wheels over it but doesn’t crush it to powder.  This too comes from the Lord of Heaven’s Armies – His counsel is wonderful, His wisdom great.”

We believe the following Word is specifically for those for whom Destiny Outreach is their church.

You have been crying out for a move of My Spirit, wondering when will I fill My house which seems barren and fruitless.  You have pondered why you are in such a dry place, and yet you’ve stayed faithful in your love and worship of Me, seeking My face despite the discouragement and fear with which the enemy has barraged you.  Know that I am releasing new wine in your midst.  A fresh anointing to meet the needs of people in a new day.  Where once you mourned, you will now rejoice and question, “How did this happen so quickly?”  I will restore unto you the joy of your salvation, and those that once mocked will stand in wonder that I, the Lord, have performed every promise I made unto you plus some.  You will blossom spiritually and physical growth will come to My church as a result of what I am doing in you.  Watch for it, it is coming, says the Lord.  Isaiah 25:1, 9, “ADONAI, you are my God.  I exalt You, I praise Your Name.  For You have accomplished marvels, [fulfilled] ancient plans faithfully and truly…See! This is our God! We waited for Him to save us. This is ADONAI; we put our hope in Him. We are full of joy, so glad He saved us!”

You are not a square peg in a round hole.  I have fashioned you perfectly for the place to which I have called you.  Am I not the Master Carpenter, able to cut, reshape, and sand any block of wood to My own desire?  Don’t look at what appears to be, for though you don’t see the possibilities now, you must trust My plan and the shaping of My hand.  It is to your advantage that what will be in you has not yet been revealed.  You are currently hidden in Me for there are things that must be cut away, but I have chosen the perfect piece of wood, and you will be a Masterpiece unto Me.  You were formed for My glory, My use, My purpose, says the Lord.  Jer. 1:5, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born, I separated you for Myself, I have appointed you to be a prophet to the nations.” Rom. 8:18-19, “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.  For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.”

Are you thirsty?  For what?  Whoever drinks the water I give will never thirst again!  Some of you are parched, but know now that I will open up springs in this desert place.  It will bring forth in your life that which has been lacking, and that which you have been longing for – restoration of health, finances, your family. Come and allow My Word to restore and refresh you.  Let it reenergize your spirit man and quench your thirst, saturating what has dried within you, making it fertile ground once again.  For I intend to plant within you, and bring forth a harvest that will bring nourishment to others, says the Lord.  Is. 41:17-20, “The poor and needy look for water in vain; their tongues are parched with thirst.  I, ADONAI, will answer them.  I, the God of Israel, will not leave them.  I will open up rivers on the barren hills and wells down in the broad valleys.  I will turn the desert into a lake and dry ground into springs.  I will plant the desert with cedars, acacias, myrtles and olive trees; In the Aravah I will put cypresses together with elm trees and larches.  Then the people will see and know, together observe and understand that the hand of ADONAI has done this, that the Holy One of Israel created it.”

Peace on earth. I brought peace in with Me, and I left My peace with you.  Peace is the precursor to provision, because peace facilitates faith and rest.  Jealously guard the peace I have given you.  Don’t allow devil or man to take it from you.  So many words being spoken today are meant to deliberately rob you of the gift I left for you.  Your feet are shod with the gospel of peace, yes to share with others, but also to make sure that you walk in the direction that peace dictates, which is always a view from My perspective. Peace, be still, My child.  Luke 2:14, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men.”  John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
