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.”

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!”

12/19/2016 Daily Word

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.”

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.”
