Be at Peace & Seek a Closer Relationship with God (7.29.16)

My Child,
I know your pain and grief are real. Right now, the pain is perhaps too real to face, and you’re looking for a place of comfort. You don’t have to look any further - I Am here. Come to Me; dwell in My secret place, and abide under the shadow of My wings. I know the weight of the events that recently happened left you feeling weary, and now the sorrow seems too much to bear.

I want you to know that the pain you’re feeling will not last forever. For weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. Abide in My Presence and I will help you get through the night. I know you think that I don’t understand; however, I understand what you are going through more than you know. I understand your pain and sorrow, for I felt even greater pain when My Son gave His life and became sin for the world. I felt His pain, and I felt the pain of sin on Him. So, I understand what you are going through more than you know.

My child, in the midst of your pain, I ask you to trust Me.
Yes, trust Me with your worries, cares and concerns.

Cry if you must for this is a process that you must go through. Your tears will bring healing and deliverance to your wounded spirit. Weeping doesn’t mean that you are weak; it’s a way of letting go and allowing Me to cover you with My healing balm. When you sow in tears, you shall reap in joy - that is My promise to you.

Now, be at peace and seek My Face.
Seek to have a closer relationship with Me.

You need Me Beloved, so come close and allow Me to heal your pain. Oh, child, I understand what you’re going through more than you know. So, come close to Me and rest in My arms.

With God's Faith, Hope & Love - We are Called.... (7.28.16)

If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing… And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. - 1 Corinthians 13:3, 13

Faith Believers,
The headlines are full of stories about violence, tragedy, and suffering.
Storms, cancer rates, mass shootings and more - it might feel impossible
to believe that GOD can work in the midst of these tragedies.
How can anything good come from something so horrible.

As followers of Christ, these are the dark places into which we are called.

We are called to go to our neighbor who just lost her husband and is now a single mom.  We are called to go to the people who feel vulnerable, targeted and afraid.  We are called to go to our estranged brother who just got diagnosed with cancer.  We are called to go to the homeless shelters within our communities.

But we aren’t called to go into the darkness alone. 
We are to carry Christ’s love with us,
and lavish it on those who are suffering and in need.

Choose some one today whom you know could use the love of GOD in their life. It could be out of your comfort zone to reach out to them, but GOD is worth it, and so are they. Choose to love that person in a tangible way today. With GOD’s love, we don't ask, "Is it worth it?" but we should proclaim, "He is worth it!"


~ Prayer ~
Father GOD,

Please fill me with faith to trust that You are good,
hope to believe that You are working all things out
for the good of those who love You,
and the love of Your Son, Jesus Christ;
which motivates me to be Your Hands and Feet
while serving those in need. 
Amen

2 Timothy 1:7 ~ Speak To It and Begin to Rule & Reign in Your Life!! (7.27.16)

My Child,
It is time for you to speak to the circumstances blocking your way. 

Speak to the mountains and tell it to be removed. 

All you need to do is believe My Word and speak to it in faith. I called you to rule and reign in My Name, and I gave you authority over serpents and scorpions. So, why do you allow the enemy and the circumstances of this world to get you down?

All the authority you need is in My Name. 

Yes, itʹs in My Name. 
In My Name, speak to the sickness and lack.
In My Name, speak to the walls and the closed doors.
In My Name, speak to the seeds of faith planted
and tell them it’s harvest time.

I have given you authority,
and when you speak in My Name,
all must obey.

Consider how My Son spoke to the fig tree, and caused it to die. He spoke with authority, power, and faith. I want you to operate the same way. The anointing is 
upon you; I gave you authority. However, there are times you forget this and struggle under the spirit of fear. That’s not the spirit I gave you. 

I challenge you to know who you are in Me, 
and begin to rule and reign in this life.

Lift up your voice, praise Me,
and then in My Name,
Speak to it!



Read and Meditate on His Word
Mark 11:23- 24 - For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Luke 10: 19 - Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.


John 14:13-14 - And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 

John 16:33 - These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world

2 Timothy 1:7 - For GOD hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

You are Where God needs You to Be, You are not Standing Still. Be Prayerful, Wait on Him & Get Ready for the Blessings God has Prepared for You. (7.26.16)

My Child,
I heard you say that you are feeling like you are at a standstill.
You say you cannot move forward, and
it appears as if everyone else is moving on.

Everyone, except you.
Why are you trying to compete with everyone else?
You are where I need you to be, and you are not standing still.

You cannot begin to imagine what is happening in the spirit realm, in order for you to take the next step. Nothing is standing still. If only you could see the things that I Am doing for you.

 Each step in this journey is significant for your walk with Me.

Do not focus on your circumstantial goals, because those are only temporal. What is most important is that I become your main goal. Always let your fellowship with Me be your first priority. Must I remind you to continue to seek the Kingdom of GOD, first? Of course not, you already know this.

I know your heart is stirred to act, and you are tempted to hurry the process; but please do not.  Wait on Me. I do not need you to force things to happen. I know you want to help but I do not need for you to do anything. I do not need you to cover for Me. I do not want you to interfere with My Plan. Must I remind you again, about what happened to Abraham and Sarah when they tried to help me?

Wait for Me Beloved.
I know what I Am doing.
Wait until you clearly hear My Voice, and then move.

I need you to trust Me. You must not allow your flesh to dictate your moves. The enemy is waiting for you to act in the flesh. Remember that which is of the flesh will surely die, and come to naught.

Be prayerful and wait on Me.

If you are anxious to do something then work on getting yourself ready to receive the blessings I have prepared for you, and let Me work on bringing it to pass. That should keep you busy for a while, don’t you think?

Wait on Me, I Am always right on time.


Meditate on His Word: Psalm 27:14

~ My Prayer ~ I am committed to waiting on You, Lord.

Sometimes it is hard to wait,
but I’ve learned not to do it my way.

You've always been there just when I needed you the most.
Thank you!

Have Faith & Believe. Call Your Blessings into Existence.... (7.25.16)

My Child,
I know I Am answering your prayers in a way, which might not seem to make sense to you, but why don’t you have faith in what I Am doing?  

You prayed, believed, and expected a reply; however, the reply that came forth was not quite what you expected.  Now you are wondering if I even heard your prayer.  A part of you is questioning whether I even care, and you’re beginning to doubt if it’s worth keeping your commitment of faith to Me.  

The angel told Daniel, from the moment he opened his mouth "to seek understanding, and speak forth My Word for that which he desired;" and I heard his prayer. I want you to believe that I've sent forth the Word for your deliverance and provision as well.  Therefore, never allow your eyes to deceive you; have faith.

Have faith and believe. 
Believe in Me, and the promises I have spoken over your life.
Stand firm in faith and refuse to give up until you receive your answer.

Child, I want you to be just like the woman who persisted, and wouldn’t leave My presence until I healed her daughter.  


Stay before Me until you see My Hand move upon your situation.
Continue to pray in My Name. 
Have faith, and the things that once blocked your blessing will be removed. 

Then your eyes will be opened, and you will see that I was there all the time, working on your behalf. You will see that I was there, waiting for you to call your blessings into existence.

I heard you.
I’ve answered your prayers. 
Have faith, help is on the way.



Read and Meditate on His Word
Daniel 10:12 - Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy GOD, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.
 
Matthew 15:22-28 - And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

Mark 11:22 - And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in GOD. 

1 John 5:14-15 - And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we askany thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

Eternal Value (7.24.16)

My Child,
You will face situations that will challenge
the very foundation of what you believe.

Even though it will feel very difficult at times, I want you to understand it is necessary. For these situations will cause you to do some much-needed soul searching, which will bring you to a new plateau of faith.
 

The situations you face will provide opportunities
to seek Me for wisdom, and establish trust in your life.

I Am your very present help in times of trouble, and I alone will bring you through.

It is a refiner’s fire that is burning within you. Let those things burn that cannot withstand the heat, for that which remains will be cherished for its eternal value.

Eternal value is what your life is all about,
and that is a very precious thing.



Read and Meditate on God's Word
Psalm 46:1 - GOD is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Zechariah 13:9 - And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried:

Job 23:8-10 - Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him: On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him: But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.

In His Perfect Peace - A "Power, Love, Trust & Sound Mind" Prayer (7.23.16)

Heavenly Father,
I come to you in Your Son Jesus' name, asking you
to please forgive me for allowing worry and anxiety
to take root in my life.

I plead the blood of Jesus Christ against all spirits of fear, oppression, and depression; and I declare and decree, that I do not have a spirit of fear - but of power, love and a sound mind.

I declare that I will not allow the enemy to rob me of my peace, anymore. I will trust in Your Word. Today, I surrender my will to You, and You alone. I give You complete control, and I recognize that You are greater than any fear my mind can conceive. Oh Father, by worrying I am displaying an obvious lack of faith, and I know that without faith, it is impossible to please You.

Father, it is my desire to please you in all that I do.
So right now I give You the weight of my world,
that I have taken on my shoulders,
and I place it all in Your Hands. 
I cast all my cares upon You,
because I know You care for me.

Father, in the name of Jesus, I bind and cast out every anxious and worrisome thought out of my life; and I bind my heart, my soul and my mind to the Holy Spirit. Father God, I ask You to please let Your Mind be in me, as it is in Christ Jesus. I take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and I embrace the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding; and that would guard my heart and mind through Christ Jesus into my life. Oh Lord, when my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to You, the Rock, that is higher than I.

Father, You promised to keep me in Your perfect peace;
if I keep my mind on You and if I trust in You.

I make this my declaration to You:
I will focus all of my thoughts on You
because I trust in You.

Thank You Father for delivering me from worry, for binding every stronghold of the enemy coming against me and casting those worries and strongholds out.

Lord God, I thank You for allowing me to rest in this confidence, knowing You are for me and with me. And because I know You are for me and with me; I know there is nothing I will face today that You cannot see me through.

I know there is no power greater than You.
I can rest in Your arms because there is nothing strong enough to come against me and succeed.

I praise You for this victory, and for Your Divine Peace, that floods my soul.
In Jesus Name, I pray,
Amen

Staying the Course & Being Obedient to God's Word (7.22.16)

Faith Believers,
GOD's plan is for us to trust Him completely for all of our needs. He want us to continually acknowledge Him and stay in close fellowship with Him, at all times. He want us to trust Him for everything. This is stated clearly in Proverbs 3:5-7 - Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Anytime we put our trust in anyone other than our Lord and Saviour, we will be let down. Psalms 118:8 says, It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.  Others will try to keep their promises to you; but GOD is the only One who will never let you down. GOD cannot and will not lie. When GOD makes a promise, you do not have to worry, it is done.

He watches over His Word to perform it.
His Word cannot return to Him void.
You can depend upon Him to see it through.

Isaiah 55:11 tells us, So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

We must maintain a close fellowship with the Lord.

And in order to do that we must be obedient to His Word and stay the course He has placed us on. We should trust Him and know that He cares about what we are going through, and that He will not ever fail. Even when you cannot see how things are going to work out, you must trust and believe that He is working things out for your good.

Remember our trust should always be in GOD.
He can do anything but fail.

God is GREATER!!! (7.20.16)

My Child,
The enemy is doing a work against you to cause you to lose hope and fill you with anxiety. Do not allow his attacks to cause you to turn away from Me. Remember all your hope, and your strength lies within Me. I will do what I have promised, and I will never allow you to go through more than you can bear.

I Am always watching over you, and there is nothing that will ever catch Me by surprise. Sometimes, you fail to realize that I Am bigger than any problem that you will ever face. Take a moment now and look at your problem, then look at Me.

Am I not bigger than your problems?
Can your problems do all the things I do?
Is your problem a Creator, a Healer, A Provider, or A Deliverer?
Can you now see that I AM GREATER?

So come, spend time with Me.
I will strengthen you to overcome what has come against you.
Just release everything and lean on Me.

No more worrying about the enemy.
You will never go through anything alone.
Come into My presence, I will comfort you and
fill you to overflow with My Spirit.

You’ll see that I AM GREATER.

Be at peace now,
stand strong in faith,
and remember I AM GREATER.

God's Promises & Marvelous Things (7.19.16)

My Child,
Take a deep breath, and get ready for incredible things to happen. 

The things you have waited for will begin to manifest right now in the Name of Jesus I will resurrect what you thought was dead. Prophecies that were on the shelves for years will now begin to come to pass. The dreams I placed within you that have not come to pass will be brought forth at this time.
 

I speak over you blessings that these dreams will begin to manifest immediately. Each door that I open will lead to the fulfillment of their purpose and destiny. Each door will lead to a higher level and promotion.
 

Promises that I whispered in your ears years ago will now come forth. I am going to do things in unprecedented ways and there will be no question that it is I that did these marvelous things. So, awake and take heart for I have opened doors that no man can shut. 

I have not forsaken, nor forgotten My own.
