Hold fast to My covenant.  My covenant with you is the key to your breakthrough.  Have I not given you all things that pertain to life and godliness?  Have I not already provided healing for you – body, soul, and spirit?  Have I not commanded the blessing on My Bride?  Remember My covenant with you is a blood covenant, sealed with My own blood that was shed for you.  It covers you, marking you as Mine.  I have already added what was wanting in you to bring you to a place of wholeness; it is not something you must work towards.  Stop striving and walk into the freedom I provided for you with My blood.  Allow the power of My blood to be your victory, for in it is My life – abundant life given for and to you. Heb. 10:14, “For by a single offering He has brought to the goal for all time those who are being set apart for God and made holy.”  Is. 53:4-5, “In fact, it was our diseases He bore, our pains from which He suffered; yet we regarded Him as punished, stricken and afflicted by God.  But He was wounded because of our crimes, crushed because of our sins; the disciplining that makes us whole fell on Him, and by His bruises we are healed.”

Do not despair regarding My promises.  My hand will not be moved!  I have spoken it and I will fulfill it, despite what man or devil may attempt.  Sometimes laying hold of My promises requires pushing past the barrage of lies the enemy is throwing at you.  Other times it requires ignoring the naysayers who have no jurisdiction over your situation.  Use your faith – it is active, not passive.  Rebuke the enemy, and it must flee! Be strong and wield your sword with precision.  Cut down the negative thoughts that would prevent your decisive action. I will not allow for any Word of Mine to be voided.  My Word is My Person, and is the essence of who I AM – your Strong Tower and Mighty Deliverer!  2 Sam. 22:2-6ff, “The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge; my stronghold and my refuge; my savior – You save me from violence.  I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.  For the waves of death encompassed me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me; the cords of Sheol surrounded me; the snares of death confronted me.  In my distress I called upon the LORD, Yes, I cried to my God; , from His temple He heard my voice and my cry for help came into His ears…”

Understand that I have specifically placed you where you are for My glory.  You may feel out of your element and uncomfortable, but know that in this place My hand is on you for the fulfillment of My purposes.  Your calling in Me may not seem to match your circumstances, but know that as you step forward into your destiny, I will move through you mightily to touch those around you.  Learn to trust the strategic placement of My hand, and stop trying to move yourself according to your own desires and understanding.  You are right where I need and want you to be to bring forth victory!  Ezekiel 1:3, “The word of ADONAI came to the priest Ezekiel son of Buzi, in the land of the Babylonians by the Kebar River; there the hand of ADONAI was with him.” Prov. 3:5-6, “Trust in ADONAI with all your heart; do not rely on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him; then He will level your paths.”

I know your misgivings about yourself.  Trust, though, that I am in the process of refining you.  Have faith that I will complete the process and I will bring you out to pure gold, for I, the Lord, have seen your heart and know you.  I have an intimate knowledge of what I am shaping in you – every flaw and impurity, as well as true substance.  Don’t be so impatient with yourself.  It is a process, not an event, so continue faithfully in the way I have led you.  Job 23:10, “He knows the way I take; When He has tried me, I shall come forth as gold. My foot has held fast to His path; I have kept His way and not turned aside. I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.”

12/8/2016 Daily Word

Examine your own walk with Me.  Know both where you should have and shouldn’t have been.  Understand where you are now and plan for growth.  Growth is deliberate and intentional.  As you enter a new season, plan to expand in your knowledge of Me, understanding My ways and person.  Be purposeful in your pursuit of and trust in Me.  Be decisive in the actions you take to move forward into your destiny as My Spirit directs you. Your roots run deep; it’s time for expansion.  2 Cor. 13:5, “Examine yourselves to see whether you are living the life of trust.  Test yourselves.  Don’t you realize that Jesus the Messiah is in you?” 2 Pt. 3:17-18, “Beloved, since you already know these things, be on your guard not to be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure standing.  But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  To Him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity.  Amen.”

12/7/2016 Daily Word

Everything I use for My purpose.  It is the character and nature of My love, otherwise, the enemy’s plans for evil, wouldn’t bring forth future, but only death. The difficult brings forth strength, death brings forth life, the hard can be used to soften.  Let the same be said of you.  As My child, My love flows through you.  Choose to allow the bad to bring forth good, if only in you.  Choose to grow instead of stagnating, choose to hope instead of permitting despair, and allow love to reign supreme as you choose to forgive rather than giving bitterness root.  As you do, watch and see, for My Spirit will move in this situation too, and what He does will be beyond your comprehension.  Rom. 8:27-28, “He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.  And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose.”

‘Immanu El, God is with us.  Yes, I AM with you!  I AM for you, and not against you.  I AM with you at all times and during all seasons.  I AM with you in the midst of life’s trials and triumphs, I AM with you when you lie down and rise up.  Do not relegate My presence to an occasional seasonal glimpse, but rather awaken with a song in your heart knowing that I AM with youDon’t look around and question where I am, but stand with quiet resolve, knowing that God – the Creator and Sustainer of all that is, was, or ever will be – is with you, even to the end of the age.  Matt. 28:20b, “And lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.  Amen.”

Now is the time of your healing.  Now is the time that I will restore all that the enemy has taken from you.  I will cause to be returned unto you a surplus and you will move into a new arena of ministry that you have not even thought possible.  Your destiny has been held in My hands, suspended for such a time as this.  I am arising on your behalf even now and will show you the way in which you should go, providing and restoring as you go.  It will be a time of rest because you will have learned to let go and trust, following what I am doing in and through you, and I will be glorified through you.  Mal. 3:20, “But to you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will break out leaping, like calves released from the stall.”  Joel 3:25-26, “I will restore to you the years that the locusts ate, the grasshoppers, shearer-worms and cutter-worms, My great army that I sent against you.  You will eat until you are satisfied and will praise the Name of ADONAI your God, who has done with you such wonders.  Then My people will never again be shamed.” I Thes. 1:11-12, “With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of His calling, and that by His power He may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith.  We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Love brought Me to Earth, love paved the way to the cross, love prompts Me to prepare a place for you, and love that will cause My return.  My love does all for you – My passion, My Bride.  And just as I love, I have called you to love.  My love sends you, but it must love that motivates your continual sacrifice and service, not duty or habit.  As we become One, the dominating characteristic of your life will be your love for others.  Love makes difficult decisions and endures the impossible.  If you would be a hope-bearer, faith-fertilizer, and bridge-builder in your home and your community, pray that My love would be realized in you.  John 17:23, “I united with them and You with Me, so that they may be completely one, and the world thus will realize that you sent Me, and that You have loved them just as You have loved Me.” I Cor. 13:13-14:1a, “But for now, three things last – faith, hope, love; and the greatest of these is love.  Pursue love!”

The path l am leading you on seems to be taking you through a place where My steps are untraceable, but the road is clear.  I am guiding you to a place you have never been.  You must choose to trust the direction I am leading you, even if it’s through fire.  Asking “why” will not get you to the destination I intend for you, trusting obedience will.  In due time everything will be made clear, but I ask you to be willing to trust Me even when you don’t understand, and rely on My presence going before you through it all.   Ps. 77:19, “Your way went through the sea, Your paths through the turbulent waters, but Your footsteps could not be traced.”  Deut. 31:8, “But ADONAI – it is He who will go ahead of you.  He will be with you.  He will neither fail you nor abandon you, so don’t be afraid or downhearted.”
