You Must Move Beyond Your Crossroad, to Walk Into Your Destiny (4.21.14)

Beloved,
I see that your heart is full of pain. I see you sitting at the crossroads, forcing yourself just to exist, feeling nothing but spiritual and emotional burnout. I also see those of you who are sitting at the crossroads, weary from the years of waiting to see the fulfillment of My promises for your life. Let Me remind you, that you shall see your heart, spirit and body healed; then you shall see the restitution and restoration of all things lost. 

However, in order for this to happen, you must move beyond your crossroad.

Right now, you’re feeling shut down and sitting at the crossroad because of betrayal, hurt and abandonment. You’ve separated yourself from everyone you once trusted, even Me. You’ve allowed a spirit of self-pity to hold you hostage and now you’re stuck and feeling sorry for yourself. It’s time for you to get past your Ziklag crossroad and move on. It’s time to cross over. It’s time to stop saying, “I have nothing left to give”; for each time you say this, that’s what exactly what you’re left with, nothing.

Deep within your heart, you know that all I have promised you, shall come to pass. Don’t allow the hurt and pain to continue to speak for you. You may not know how, or when it will come to pass, but you know it shall happen. I say, it is time to arise and go forth. It is time for you to leave the crossroad that has held you captive. 

Arise, do not be stagnate anymore.  
Arise in faith, and free yourself from this crossroad.

My child, I am ready to move in your life. 
Are you ready to move with Me? 

Then linger no more. I have chosen you and I knew this day would come. Remember, I also know how everything will end. So, arise and be eager to see Me move in your life. Arise from this crossroad, with your faith renewed in Me, and be ready to receive. 

Arise My Beloved, arise with Me.
Move from this crossroad and walk into your destiny.

Enter Into His Presence with Gladness (4.19.14)

My Child,
This day I want to remind you of the love I have in My heart for you.  I loved you before I came into this world. It was My love for you that moved Me to lay down My Son's life for you, so you could have eternal life.  It’s My love for you that moves Me each day to reach out to you and pour blessings upon your life, so that you may have life more abundantly.

It is this same love for you that causes Me to question why you come to Me for help, but then don’t believe in your heart that I will answer.  Just because I don’t answer on your time, it does not mean it’s not yours.  You see, there are times that My love for you will come to you with strong and clear directions to help you understand why the blessing is delayed; then supply you with the strength you need to hold on. My love for you comes with patience; and I want your love for Me to have the same; because if it does, it will help you wait for the fulfillment of your blessing.

Oh, My child, My heart is filled with so much love for you, and I will never forsake you. Just come into the comfort of My presence and spend some time listening to Me this day, and all will be made clear. I am right here. I’ve never left you nor forsaken you; and My love for you will never change no matter what you do.

This day, put aside your fears and enter into My presence with gladness. Think about Me this day. Embrace My love and who I am. I am your Heavenly Father. You will never be able to comprehend how much I love you; so know that I love you so very much, and I pray you will love Me in return.

I love you.

Everyone Can't Be In Your Front Row (4.17.14)

Life is a theater so invite your audiences carefully. 
Not everyone is holy enough nor healthy enough to have a FRONT ROW seat in our lives. There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a distance. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you let go, or at least minimize your time, with draining, negative, incompatible or "not-going-anywhere" relationships, friendships, fellowships and family!



Everyone Can't be in Your FRONT ROW.

Observe the relationships around you. 
Pay attention to, which ones "lift" and which ones "lean"? Which ones encourage and which ones discourage? Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are just going downhill? When you leave certain people, do you feel better or do you feel worse? Which ones always have drama or don't really understand, know and appreciate you and the gifts that lie within you?


Everyone Can't be in Your FRONT ROW.

The more you seek God and the things of God; the more you seek quality; the more you seek not just the hand of God but the face of God,; the more you seek things that are honorable; the more you seek growth, peace of mind, love and truth around you; then the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit in the FRONT ROW and who should be moved to the balcony of your life.




Everyone Can't be in Your FRONT ROW.

You cannot change the people around you...
but you can change the people you are around! 
Ask God for wisdom and discernment; and choose wisely the people who sit in the FRONT ROW of your life. Remember that FRONT ROW seats are for special and deserving people and those who sit in your FRONT ROW should be chosen carefully.

EVERYONE CAN'T BE IN YOUR FRONT ROW.

This Too Shall Pass (4.15.14)

My Child,
I am the one who supply all of your needs, 
so rely on Me, and Me alone, and you will see that this too shall pass. 

I know your endurance has been tried almost to the breaking point. 
However, think back over the times when you thought you had real reasons for worry. 
Didn't they pass? Did worrying deliver you then? 
No, and it won’t deliver you now. Yes, this too shall pass. 

However, if you continue to operate in worry, it will lead to depression; 
so why not leave the concerns of what you’re going through to Me?

Beloved, tell Me what the problem is. 
Tell Me, leave it with Me, and then thank Me 
as you wait for Me to bring it to pass. 
Don’t try to force My hand but wait for Me. 
I am the One who can cause good things to happen 
and bring change into your situation. 

This too shall pass.

______
Psalm 37:5 - Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Philippians 4:6-7 - Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Surround Yourself with People who are Rooted & Grounded in God's Word (4.14.14)

My Child, 
You have allowed anxiety to creep in 
and it is acting like an infection that won't heal.

If left untreated, your anxiety will fester into a full blown disease 
that will slowly take over your life. 
I have all things under My control. No need to worry. 
Do not allow difficult conditions, negative reports and out-of-control situations 
to undermine your faith in what I am able and willing to do on your behalf. 

I can heal all that concerns you. 
All you have to do is give Me complete control 
and I will put My balm on it. 
Put your trust completely and fully in Me. 
Trust Me.

I know that in the past it may have appeared as if I let you down; 
however, just because some of your prayers haven’t been answered yet, 
that does not mean that I have left you out in the cold. 
I am working matters out for your benefit, 
as well as Mine. 

Without a doubt, I am with you forever, 
interceding on your behalf. 
Therefore, cast aside all negative thoughts and think on good things. 
Surround yourself with people who are rooted and grounded in My Word; 
people who are uplifting, who are full of faith, 
and then you will be reassured in your faith and inner soul 
to never worry because of who I Am. 
Just believe in Me.
_____________
John 14:1 - Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

Romans 8:27 - And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Romans 15:1 - We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

The A.C.T.S. of Prayer (4.13.14)

Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results - James 5:16

Prayer is just lovingly, reverently talking to GOD. 
Have you ever heard of the A.C.T.S. of prayer? 
Each letter stands for one kind of prayer. It is not the only or "right" prayer model, but it can help remind us of some of the basic things to cover when we approach our Heavenly Father in prayer.  The A.C.T.S. are:
A = Adoration (praise)
C = Confession (of sins)
T = Thanksgiving (being grateful to God)
S = Supplication (requests)

GOD, our Creator, is wonderful; and He deserves our praise! That is why it’s good to start by praising Him. It also gives us a right perspective -- GOD’s greatness and power compared to our smallness. Jesus began The Lord's Prayer by acknowledging GOD's fatherly love, goodness and His rule over the earth: "Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven....." - Matthew 6:9-13.

Everyone has sinned and have fallen short of GOD’s glorious standard - Romans 3:23; Your sins have cut you off from GOD - Isaiah 59:2, but we want to be close to Him!  If we confess our sins to the Lord, He is faithful and just to forgive us - 1 John 1:9. Holding onto our sins builds a barrier between us and GOD. Confessing and repenting of them breaks down that wall.

How has GOD blessed you? 
How has He shown His love for you? 

Of course, we are thankful for His blessings. But we can even be grateful for our "perceived" problems and hardships.  Because He can use those to bring us closer to Him. The Bible tells us to "be thankful in all circumstances, for this is GOD’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus - 1 Thessalonians 5:18.

Jesus taught us that we can ask for what we need, and to be persistent in asking: keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you - Luke 11:9.  We can trust that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us - 1 John 5:14.

The Gospels record Jesus turning to the Father in prayer, time after time, day after day. We are to follow His example and pray without ceasing - 1 Thessalonians 5:17.

Seek Jesus With Your Whole Heart, He Will Do What You Cannot (4.12.14)

You’ve come to what you see as an impasse. 
You’ve been searching and searching for a way around it, 
but all of your efforts have failed. 

In your heart, you struggle with whether you should even ask for help. Who can you ask? You’ve learned from past mistakes that not everyone is who they proclaim to be. Yes, there is something within you that does not like to admit that you cannot handle this roadblock yourself. Now what do you do?

You come to Me. There’s nothing wrong with admitting you need help. Everyone, even I at some point, needs help. When I needed help, I called upon My Father; and He sent the angels to minister unto Me. You don’t have to struggle with this alone. I am here. Just bring Me your impossibilities. Doing the impossible gives Me the opportunity to show My power and glory. 

Seek Me with your whole heart, and I will do what you cannot.

You don’t have to stand alone.  It will bring Me joy and delight to move that stumbling block out of your way. However, you nust decide if you want My help.

Meditate on God's Word & Not Your Problems (4.11.14)

Beloved,
Whatever problems you are facing right now, 
do not allow them to consume you.

I know you feel like you should know better by now, 
but I know that sometimes situations can change so fast, 
you may forget for just a moment that I am with you. 

Never doubt in times of trouble 
the things I’ve spoken to you in the light.

Always remember who is in control of everything. I AM. 

Do not worry about changes that may come. 
There will be many changes through the course of your life. 
However, I promised you good things, 
so do not focus on what you see with your natural eye, 
but believe only. 

Place your future in My hands and rejoice.
Knowing I have promised to bless those 
who are obedient to My Word. 

You are My joint heir with Jesus; 
therefore, do not allow these problems to cause you to forget that. 

Now meditate on My Word and not your problems.

_____
Matthew 6:34 - Take therefore, no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.

Romans 8:17 - And if children, then heirs; heirs of GOD, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

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

Just Let God Lead the Way (4.9.14)

My Child,
Do not look to man to provide directions for your life. 

Heed My voice, and I will make your path straight. 
I understand the need for fellowship; it is what I encourage. 
However, when it comes to the right path to take, 
the steps of a righteous person will be ordered by the Lord. 
The way that I will lead you will be straight and narrow; 
and if you hearken unto My voice, 
you will have no problem following this path. 

Do not become hasty and try to make things happen 
when I don’t respond in your timing. 
Have faith and patience in Me 
to get you where I need you to be. 

When you allow Me to choose the path and lead the way; 
you can walk through that open door with courage and confidence, 
knowing that all is well. 

Just let Me lead the way.
I will bring to pass My perfect will in your life.

Proverbs 3:5-6 - 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.
