Do Not Worry About How Things Look - Do Not Allow Anything to Steal Your Joy (4.24.17)

My Child,
Do not allow what you see to control you or your day,
     and do not judge your situation as if you’re losing the battle. 


Just because you don’t feel you are overcoming, and just because you cannot see how things will work out; that does not mean that it’s over. Things aren't always what they appear to be.  Look to Me, the Author and Finisher of your faith, and do not allow the negative things to control you.  

Walk by faith, not by sight.

Don't you know that all things will work together for your good - because you love Me, and you are Mine?  Your steps are ordered by Me, and I will not allow iniquity to have control over you. 

I Am your loving Father.
So, cast all your cares upon Me
     and be anxious for nothing. 
In all things ask of Me, and I will reply graciously. 
However, remember the answers will come
     according to My Timing.


While I Am working in your life, be patient and
     refrain from murmuring and complaining. 
Focus on the good things, while counting your blessings.
Focusing on negative circumstances will rob you of your joy. 

Do not allow anything to steal your joy.  


I Am your loving Father, and I have supplied all your needs.
I Am faithful.
I keep My promises. 
Therefore, keep My Word in your heart.

Stay before Me in prayer always, and don’t worry
     about how things look, because things aren’t
     always what they appear to be.

Keep your eyes on Me.

Step Out in Faith. Your Journey has Begun. God Calls You, This Day, To Be Blessed. (4.23.17)

My Child,
Your journey has begun.

I have identified for you the way in which you should walk.
I’ve spoken to you and given you the spiritual understanding you need to advance towards the finish line.

Respond in faith to that which I have spoken and receive the blessing of this season in a glorious and unique way, for I call you this day to be blessed.


Step out in faith.
Rise up, and cast off doubt.
Remove double-mindedness, for I desire to bless you
        beyond all of your expectations. 
I desire to bless you beyond anything you can ever understand
        and beyond 
all you can ever comprehend.

Therefore, move forward in faith. 
Move in the strength and the power of My Might,
        and become one with Me. 


Press forward and walk with Me Beloved. 

Walk this path that I’ve set before you, and you shall see My glory manifest and abound in the promises I have spoken. 

So, I say to you, get up!
Rebuke stagnation and yield to what I Am doing. 
Be determined to press your way through and finish the race. 


Precious One, finishing what you started is the only way you will be able to receive all that I have promised.

My child, this is how I choose to bless those who are obedient to My Word and those who choose to walk by faith.

Your Season to Receive Prophesied Blessings Has Arrived (4.21.17)

My Child,
Your season to receive prophesied blessings has arrived.

These blessings shall come upon you because you were faithful to My Word.

You fought the good fight of faith.
You used the weapons of warfare that I gave you
       to defeat the strongholds coming against you.
You demonstrated a remarkable perseverance during
      this last season as you stood on My Word.

Now, you are about to enter into a season of great blessings
      that will extend above all you could ever ask or think.

Therefore, be encouraged.
Be renewed.

Let the waters of My Spirit flow to bring this fresh anointing, upon you this day. Be ready to receive that which I have given, and let it come mightily into your life.

My Beloveds, this is indeed a time in which you will grow - exceedingly, and abundantly, beyond all that you can imagine. 

You have believed and therefore, you shall receive.


Read and Meditate on His Word:
Deuteronomy 28:2 - And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy GOD.

Take His Hand & Never Let Go.... (4.20.17)

Beloved,
Now is the time to stand against all that is coming against you.

Yes, I know you have been attacked by the enemy and you may feel like you’re sinking; however, I want you to be like Peter, and reach out and take My Hand.

Take My Hand and let’s walk on the water together. 
Take My Hand and put fear and doubt under your feet.
~~~

My Child,
Why is it easier for you to embrace negative thoughts more than positive thoughts? Why are you always thinking that way? Rebuke those thoughts and stand on My Word.  Stop believing “nothing good will ever happen," and start believing in My Promises.

Saturate your mind with My Word. 
If you meditate on My Word, day and night,
      then doubt and fear will not have a place to rest.
Fear and doubt can never ever answer your prayers, or bless you.
Fear and doubt will not help you accomplish any of your dreams.
I Am the only One who can answer you.

Now is the time for you to decide whom you will serve. 
It is time to stop fearing the enemy.
It is time to stop doubting what I will do, and stand. 
Will you stand and resist the enemy, while believing
     in the things I have promised you? 

I hope you choose to take My Son's Hand and never let go.

My Child, it won’t always be easy. 

However, if you stand and believe, I Will bless you
     beyond what you thought was possible.

Stand on your faith in Me.
Please take My Son's Hand, walk with Us and
     believe that what I have promised you, will come to pass.....

 

Read and Meditate on GOD's Word:  
Matthew 14:30-31 - But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

Prayer Doesn't Start with You or Me, Prayer Starts with God (4.19.17)

The Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accord with God’s will - Romans 8:26-27

Faith Believers,
For years I believed that my prayers started with me.
Prayer doesn’t start with us. Prayer starts with GOD.

When I realized this, my prayer life changed.
 

GOD is the initiator of prayer.
He moves us to pray.
He gives us prayer ideas.
He holds out the promises we claim in prayer.

When we pray, we are GOD’s instruments.
GOD is at work in all of our praying.

He makes His Will known to us, so that we will ask for the very things He longs to give us. Out of love, He want us to pray for others; so that, in response to our intercession, He can pour out blessings over the very people we pray for.
  -  Marilyn


~ Prayer ~
Father,
Thank You that You will help me to pray,
by the guidance of Your Holy Spirit. 

May I continually remember that
it is not my will be done…but Yours!

Lord, lay on my heart the prayer You will
have me to pray for others, as you bless them.

I pray this prayer in the Name
of Your Son, Jesus Christ,

Amen

Come Boldly to the Throne of Grace & Mercy; Seek God's Face & Stand on His Word. (4.18.17)

My Child,
Don’t you dare allow yourself to give in to discouragement, heaviness, or to be overcome by evil.

Come dwell with Me and let Me break
       every chain that has bound you,
       and overcome evil with good.
Stand and pray with confidence in My Ability
       to answer your every prayer.
Put away all complaints, and pray,
       expecting your prayers to be answered.
I Am not a man that I should lie,
       nor a son of man that I would change My Mind.


the enemy is seeking ways to distract you by clouding your mind with doubt and confusion. Rest assured, I know his tricks, and so do you; and they have not changed. Therefore, you have nothing to fear. Come boldly before the throne of grace and mercy and seek My Face, and stand on My Word.

Start claiming My Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven, and watch Me move according to My Word.


It is time My Child, time to break away
       from all that held you captive for so long.
Come now, take your rightful place beside Me.
Stand on My Word and be blessed
       according to My riches in glory.
Stand now and ask, so that you can receive
       all that you need.

No longer shall you be on the outside looking in.  Knock and I will open the door for you, and not just any door, but the door which leads to your blessings.





Read and Meditate on My Word:
Numbers 23:19 - GOD is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Romans 12:21 - Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Hebrews 4:16 - Let
us, therefore, come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Deuteronomy 28:2 - And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy GOD. 

Ephesians 6:13 - Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of GOD, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Being Ready for "The Next Step" (4.17.17)

My Child,
My Word is a light unto your path, and I will guide you every step of the way, but oftentimes you want a floodlight to make the entire journey clear.

If you knew everything that was ahead, you would be
     too afraid to step out in faith to reach your blessings.
However, I know if I show you one step at a time, you will
     build up the faith to overcome each step.

Even though I have many good things planned for you, each one must come in the correct timing, My timing. Showing you too much might tempt you to get ahead of My Plans, and I don’t want you to be out of My Will for your life.

Please don’t think that I Am withholding anything from you.
I know your journey, and I know how much you can handle.

Trust in My Timing to reveal your next step,
    and to provide provisions.

Therefore, do not be discouraged that the entire picture is not clear.

Rather rejoice, because each step makes you
    stronger, wiser, and equips you for something greater.

Be patient, rest in Me this day,
   so that you can be ready for the next step.

Meditate on My Word:
Psalm 119:105  ;  Psalm 32:8  ;  Psalm 139: 3

An Easter Prayer (4.16.17)

Father GOD,
I come to you today to celebrate Jesus Christ, the King of Compassion and Lord of my life.

As my thoughts reflect on Resurrection Sunday,
   and that day of suffering,
   I realize that that Day was no ordinary Day.
That Day stands out from every other Day.

Resurrection Sunday, that Day of suffering and death opened the opportunity for us to choose eternal life.

Father, stir my unsaved loved ones to choose Your Son, Jesus as their Lord and Savior on this Resurrection Sunday. Speak to them in a personalized way that will give them every opportunity to make Jesus the Lord and Savior of their lives.

Thank You for Your love and mercy.
Thank You for Your amazing grace.

In the matchless Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ,

Amen

God is Faithful & True (4.14.17)

My Child,
Do not doubt in your heart, or in your mind,
    that I will come through for you.
Do not waver in your faith, nor in the things
    I have said unto you.

Take your eyes off your situation
     and stay focused on Me.
Speak My Word and stand.
I will accomplish all that I have said,
   nothing is impossible for Me.
I AM faithful and true.

Take every thought captive and never give place to anything that I haven't spoken to you or shown you. Stop trying to figure things out, and stop saying I don’t see how this can work - that's My job.

Your job is to bring everything to Me in prayer,
     release them, and then trust in Me to honor My Word.
I AM faithful and true.

Think not that you are alone.
I Am with you in every step you take.

If you believe that I Am faithful and true,
       you will see the walls that were created
       by your wavering faith fall.

Therefore, gather your thoughts now,
      and walk according to My Word,
      for I AM faithful and true.

Read and Meditate on God's Word:
Ephesians 6:13 - Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of GOD, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
