6/8/2018 Pouring Out My Spirit

In lovingkindness with great mercy, I will draw the prodigals and the outcasts unto Myself. I have not forgotten this current generation or the fatherless state of many. I will gather them to Me and I will be their Father. I have heard the prayers of the weeping mothers and families, and though this generation appears weak, I will make them strong. They will link arms in the power of My might and shall do mighty exploits. They will be moved by My Spirit and not by what they see. For I have seen their affliction, have looked on in love, and declared them Mine. Watch and see what I will do! Prepare yourselves as spiritual fathers and mothers, for many will come and I will use you as catapults of destiny in their lives. Yes, I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh! Joel 2:28-29, “And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.” NKJV

6/7/2018 Establish Testimony

Let My testimony become firmly established in you. Seek to know and understand it so that you may communicate fully what I have done for and in you. Those that understand My testimony and walk in it do not lack the spiritual gifts necessary to operate in the world but are enriched by it in every way. Your testimony requires a death to your own way of thinking and a turning away from the sin that so easily ensnares you, that you may comprehend the fullness of the Spirit at work in you. It is more than just verbal expression, it is a way of life. Establish your testimony that you may overcome.  I Cor. 1:4-7, “I always thank my God for you because of the God’s grace given to you in Christ Jesus, that by Him you were made rich in everything – in all speaking and all knowledge – as the testimony about Christ was confirmed among you, so that you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Rev. 12:11, “They conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they did not love their lives in the face of death.” HCSB

6/6/2018 Surrender

Surrender the concerns of your heart to Me. I know their importance to you and all involved even better than you. If you will let go, I will take control and take care of all concerned. Holding on so tightly is not healthy for you, physically or emotionally. Throw the anxiety My way and be at peace. Give the pieces of your shattered heart to Me and allow Me to hold you together. There is more happening than you realize and fighting to control it rather than releasing it is preventing you from stepping into the fullness I have for You. It is a distraction at best. Let it go – I AM able! Ps. 55:22, “Cast your burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.” NKJV

6/5/2018 Need Wisdom?

Wisdom is found in the Word. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of Me – the Word. The beginning of wisdom is fear of Me – the Word, who was at the beginning. A heart of wisdom is a heart full of My Word, which cannot help but exhort and build up those around it and act in such a way that brings glory to the Father. Be a student of the Word, acquiring both wisdom and understanding. Col. 3:16-17, “Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” NKJV

6/4/2018 Connections

I am weaving people together and causing lives to intersect so that Kingdom work can be accomplished. Look for these divine connections, knowing that many will not be obvious at first and will take time to discern. Many relationships will be restored in this process. You are not called to be separate, but one. There is power – transforming power – in one that the church has yet to realize, and it is one bride for who I am returning. She is glorious! John 17:21-23, “I pray that they will all be one, just as You and I are one – as You are in Me, Father, and I am in You. And may they be in us so that they world will believe You sent Me. I have given them the glory that you gave Me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and You are in Me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that You sent Me and that You love them as much as You love Me.” NLT

6/1/2018 Watch and Pray

Be cautious for there are many things that seem innocent but are habit-forming temptations that lead to sin. Pray for discernment that you may know it when you see it – temptations can overtake you suddenly if you are not careful. Having a willing spirit is not enough. It must be disciplined to become strong and mighty, able to stand against the weakness of the flesh. Work-out your spirit so that you are easily able to deny the fleshly desires that are bound to arise in you. Matt. 26:41, “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing but the flesh is weak.” NKJV

5/31/2018 The Smallest Things

Even the smallest acts are life-changing for someone. Do not assume that lives are changed only in the big things. Life is shaped in the ordinary, everyday happenings of the world. A single bee pollinates thousands in one day, and your actions or lack thereof make a difference. Your own destiny and that of others are released when you choose to interact with those around you and pollinate flowers for the bouquet of heaven, releasing their fragrance in the earth. Mark 16:15, “And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.’”

5/30/2018 I Will Work Good

What I do or don’t allow does not have to make sense to you. Not every storm you face is named. What I long for you to understand is that I AM God, and I love you. Come to a deeper understanding of My character and nature, so that you will trust Me when I tell you that all things will work together to bring about good. It may not be what you wanted, but it will work to bring about a good that is accompanied by My presence, for all that is “good” is encapsulated in Me. Job 38:1-3, “Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said, ‘Who is this that obscures My plans with words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer Me.’” NIV

5/29/2018 Stretched Faith

You have been experiencing yet another great stretching of your faith through new and unchartered experiences. Yes, I have allowed it so that your convictions and trust in Me will strengthen. Fix your eyes on Me. I have gone before you and set the standard of faith that I would have you emulate. Whatever I ask of you, I can and will bring to perfection if you will trust Me to do so. This season of stretching must precede where I am positioning you. Do not doubt – have faith! Joy will follow. Heb. 12:2, “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” NKJV

5/28/2018 I Remember

There was a woman whose purity of heart and love toward Me prompted her to pour out costly perfume upon My feet. She performed an extraordinary service to Me despite how society viewed her – she counted the cost to herself before she ever opened the vial. There was a man who worshipped with a heart so close to Mine, that through his line I chose to come. His worship was extraordinarily pure and honest. Just as you remember, I too, remember. I remember the extraordinary heart you exhibited toward Me when things were falling around you and you chose to honor Me in your need – the times you blessed me regardless of the cost to yourself, the times you worshiped in the middle of the storm. Be blessed today, dear one, knowing that I am standing before the Father on your behalf and remember you. Matt. 26:13, “Assuredly, I say to you, that wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her.” NKJV
