Look Up.... There's Something God wants to Show You. (8.25.16)

My Child,
Yes, I closed that door;
it had become a place of bondage for you.

Trust that I Am moving on your behalf, and that soon you will see a new door opening. I Am leading you 
to a better place, which will bring you closer to Me. I will accomplish all that I began in you.

Now, step away from the situation you're facing and look up, there’s something I want to show you.
I want to show you the right direction.
I want you to see that it’s filled with great possibilities,
and the way is completely unhindered.

Do not be surprised at the promotion which is coming.
Oh, but it will NOT be in the way that you’re thinking.
Just know that I will not disappoint you,
and you will bring glory to My Name.

So, will you trust My plans and know that I have a future and a hope for you?
Child, will you trust that My plans are to bless you and fulfill your hearts’ desires?
Will you trust and believe in My Word, and know that it’s Yes and Amen?


Now, rest in what I’ve spoken to you,
be still, and draw near to Me.

There is work yet to be done.

Say "Nevertheless" & Stand Strong in God's Name (8.24.16)

My Child,
I know things aren’t exactly where you want them to be right now, and you haven’t received all that you have been promised.  You’re thinking “Why should I continue down this path, things were better when I was living in the world." You don’t truly believe that, because if you did you wouldn't have surrendered your life to Me.  Stop allowing the enemy to invade your spirit with negative and harmful memories of your past.  Stop running and tell the enemy NEVERTHELESS, though He me, yet will I trust Him.

Recognize WHO I AM, and know that the only power the enemy has over you is the power that you give him.  I say to you again this day, stop running from your enemy.  The enemy is not your lord, he has never provided for you. Even when you were living a life pleasing to him, it was I who watched over you.  It was I who protected you. Stand up and tell the enemy “SO WHAT” my circumstances aren’t where I need them to be, NEVERTHELESS, I am not ashamed, for I know who holds my future, and I will endure hardships as a good soldier in the Lord’s Army.

Say NEVERTHELESS to the battle that rages around you. Stand up in My Name and face your enemy.  Rebuke the enemy in the My Name and command him to leave your life, your house, your job, your family and all that pertains to you.  Stand strong in My Name and raise your shield as you block all of the enemy’s attacks.  I've called you to be My mighty warrior, so be encouraged this day and stand strong in the Lord.

I AM JEHOVAH JIREH, and I will provide.  I AM JEHOVAH SHALOM, and I will bring peace in the midst of the battle.  Rebuke the enemy because THIS BATTLE HAS BEEN WON!

continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.

Galatians 2:20 - I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of GOD who loved me, and gave himself for me. 

2 Timothy 1:12 - For the which cause I also suffer these things: NEVERTHELESS I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

2 Timothy 2:3-4 -
Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.  No man that warreth  entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

James 1:2-4 - My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;   Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.  But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

Arise! Arise Right Now... Arise Now & Take Authority! Arise!!!! (8.23.16)

And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us.  And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.  Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. - Matthew 9:27-29  

Faith Believers,

What is the biggest hindrance in our lives that keeps us from living the Supernatural life that GOD desires for us to live… DOUBT AND UNBELIEF!

What keeps faith from operating in our lives? It's our wavering  in the Lord. James 1: 6-7 tells us that we must operate in faith, with no wavering, no hesitating, no doubting, and no unbelief. A person who wavers, hesitates, doubts, or has unbelief is like a wave out at sea that is tossed to and fro by the wind. It goes on to say, "Does such a person believe that he will receive anything from the Lord?" If you can't fully trust the Lord, don't expect to receive what you’ve asked for.

DOUBT AND UNBELIEF are our greatest enemies to a victorious life! Take your burdens to the Lord and leave it in His hands. If the enemy tries (and most times, he will) to convince you to pick your burdens back up, immediately repent of such a thought, and give your burdens back to the Lord. Leave them there and trust Him to fight your battle.

Don't doubt Him! He doesn't need your help! He simply wants you to Trust Him. Trust Him to fight and win this battle for you. You must take your thoughts captive and turn them around to a positive statement of trust in the Lord GOD. You must conquer DOUBT AND UNBELIEF. This trial you are going through is only your training ground, it is not to destroy you, but to strengthen you. TRUST HIM!

~ And The Lord said ~
My Child,
How can you doubt Me?
How can you not trust in My Words?
How can you doubt that I Am your source, your supply?
How can you not believe in divine healing?
How can you not think all is well?
All is well; All is well.

Trust Me and be not afraid.  Be not afraid.  You know that I will keep you. Have I ever failed you? Have I not cared for you and your family? Have I not kept you strong? I Am here for you, do not doubt My Word. I told you that I would never leave you.  Do not doubt Me, trust in Me.

Faith Believers,
Take the Authority over the enemy, in the Name of Jesus Christ!
Command things to line up according to GOD's plan!
Do not give in to the devil in any area of your life!
Fill yourself up to overflow with the Word of GOD.

Your flesh and your “reasoning” must die!
Remember, you cannot mix faith and trust
with doubt and unbelief.

Like oil and water, they do not mix!!!

If doubt has a place in your life, faith cannot operate.
Faith cannot operate with reasoning.
Faith operates with complete trust in GOD and Who He Is!
Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to.
You must believe!

It's time that we rise up and take our rightful place as a child of GOD and say 'I will trust Him, and will not doubt! We need to declare these statements out loud, daily. We need to declare them as often as we can!!!! Like taking medicine, you may need to repeat them once every four hours, or as needed.
You must trust him!

Remember the devil was defeated when Christ died for us,
and rose on the third day. 
he can only operate when we let him!
Arise! Arise right now above the things which have held you captive!
Arise! Arise now, take authority and be victorious in Jesus over all the enemies of your soul!

Declare and decree that you will trust GOD,
regardless if your back is against the wall!!

I ask you again, “DO YOU BELIEVE HE IS ABLE
Then according to your faith be it unto you.

Thank God for what you have,

Trust God for what you need.

Christ Wants (and Needs) to Work in You and Through You (8.22.16)

I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father - John 14:12

Faith Believers,
If you are one of the "anyone-who-has-faith-in-me persons" of whom Jesus spoke, then you need to be on the lookout for places where Christ wants and needs to work. Is there a child who needs to be spiritually formed, a friend who needs encouragement, or a neighbor who needs Christ? If you pray, Christ will work!

Are there spiritual leaders who need to be uplifted, fellow believers who need empowerment, or a church that needs to be revived? If you pray, Christ will work!

Do you know of an anxious person who needs peace, a lonely person who needs befriending, a stranger who needs to be invited in, or a hungry person who needs to be fed? If you intercede, Christ will work!!

Christ will work in you and through you.
You will be doing the kinds of things that Christ did.
You will be doing them in His power.
You will be co-laboring with GOD.

With this promise, Christ is placing the powers of heaven at your disposal.
What a huge and important responsibility!
What an awesome privilege!
  - Marilyn

~ Prayer ~
Gracious Holy Spirit,

I repent of my selfishness that keeps me from exercising
the gifts You have given to me, for the sake of others.

There are those who could use encouragement and uplifting and others who are struggling and need to be helped through a difficult time. Yet, I keep a safe distance  at arm’s length, because I might get sucked in to more than I think I can handle. Some people and much of life are messy and complicated, yet Jesus would step into the midst of the mess and reach out His hand to heal. May the heart of Christ be evident in me today as I listen for Your kingdom instructions. Help me to lean into the mess, unafraid to be the hands and feet of the One who extended His hand to me! Amen

Let Nothing Destroy Your Faith, Hope or Confidence (8.21.16)

My Child,
The enemy is at work to undermine the strength of your position, through subtle distractions.  I see many of My Children consumed with things they have no control over.  Exercise faith and trust Me with those issues; do not be afraid of his attacks.

If you need wisdom, all you have to do is ask of Me. 
I will give wisdom to everyone, who asks in faith.

Refuse to allow the issues of life to have control over you. 

Do not give in to anything that has the potential
to destroy your faith, hope, or confidence. 

Stand strong and know that I will direct your steps. 

I Am the Lord your God and I WILL provide
everything that you need, to accomplish
what I have given you to do. 

Let nothing interrupt your flow in the Spirit.
Exercise your faith and do not be afraid. 

Read and Meditate on His Word
Hebrews 10:23 - Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) 

James 1:5-6 - If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of GOD, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that watereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 

James 2:17-18 - Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

God Started a Mighty Work in Your Life, He is Faithful & Will Complete the Good Work He has Begun (8.19.16)

Bring your burdens to Me into the secret place of My presence.  And in the secret place, where we will commune together, I will answer your prayers and bring you to a place of spiritual strength and courage.  I want you to focus.  I need your attention, so that you can be an instrument of My Will. 

I will quiet your soul so that you are positioned
to fulfill My purposes and not strive
to fulfill your own desires.

Enter into our secret place and seek Me with a whole heart. 
Let this become your number one priority so you can move
into the fullness of what I have prepared for you.

Do not be afraid to come; the path has already been laid out, and the way has been made for you to find Me. Come close to Me and surrender to My Will for your life. In our secret place, let your worship and your prayers be the pure and undefiled work of My Spirit. I want you to spend more time with Me, beloved.

Come close to Me in our secret place, and let Me abide in you and you in Me.  Let us be one, with no separation or division between us.  My desire is that your heart and mind come into complete unity with Me. I started a mighty work in your life, and I Am faithful; I will complete the good work I have begun.

My child, come and sit with Me. Spend time with Me in our secret place; then you will have a much clearer picture and worry will have no place to linger in your life.  I am praying for you, won’t you come and pray with Me? So, come, let’s dwell together in our secret place.

Ordained for Victory (8.18.16)

You already have the victory, so do not
worry about the battle that rages around you.

If you remember, spiritual battles raged around Me as I went about My Father’s business. The battles happened because of Who I Am. I pushed back the kingdom of darkness, and refused to allow the enemy to win; and you must do the same.

A spiritual battle is what you’re going through right now. The enemy is pushing back because of the work you’re doing, and he doesn’t like to lose. he tried it with Me, so don’t be surprised at his attacks against you. I never promised you things would always be easy. In fact, I said that in this world, there would be times of tribulation and adversity. However, do not be afraid of these things, for I overcame them, and so shall you.

I have given you My work to 
do and have empowered you to complete it successfully. You are victorious, and an overcomer through Me; for I gave my life for you when I died on the Cross. Therefore, do not fear the battle. I Am right beside you.

My glory will be worked in each of your circumstances
as you go forth in obedience to My
Word, because you were ordained for victory.

Read and Meditate on My Word
Psalm 118:6 - The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

it you. 

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

1 Peter 4:12-13 - Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

Your Season of Elevation Begins Right Now. Rise Up, Overcome & Be Victorious!!! (8.17.16)

My Child,
Right now is the beginning of a season of elevation,
therefore you need to set your sights on higher ground. 

So free yourself of the things that keep you preoccupied with negativity, and become adamant about making a change for the Lord.  Refuse to allow grumbling, complaining and self-pity to inhabit your spiritual atmosphere; and live your life by Every Word that I have spoken.

I know challenges will come; however, I have given you the ability
to rise up, overcome, and be victorious in every situation. 

All you have to do is stay focused on Me, and you will become strong and unwavering during your trials.  Keep your eyes on Me, and do not allow anything unrighteous to rule your thoughts, emotions or behavior.  Allow My presence and power to permeate your atmosphere.

Beloved, I have chosen you, called you by your name, and you belong to Me.  I Am calling you to come closer to Me, and distance yourself from the things of this world.

Stay focused on My Spirit and stand on My Word.

Once you release everything to Me, then
the blessings I have for you will begin to flow.
I will make a way where there seem to be no way.

Seek first My Kingdom, the Kingdom of GOD,
and everything else will fall into place.

Read and Meditate on His Word
Romans 12:2 - And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of GOD.

Love.... (8.15.16)

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. - 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Faith Believers,
This scripture reveals to us what it looks like to love "GOD’s way." Tests are essential in life to measure one’s level of growth. Just as a student needs to take tests to measure their level of understanding; likewise, we will encounter situations, or people, for the purpose of measuring whether we are truly growing in the love of GOD.

As we reflect on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, we should ask ourselves honestly:
  • Am I patient and kind to people?
  • Am I envious, boastful, and proud?
  • Do I dishonor others?
  • Am I self-seeking?
  • Am I easily angered?
  • Do I keep record of wrongs?
  • Do I rejoice with the truth or delight in evil?
  • Do I protect? Trust? Hope? Persevere always?
The answers to these questions will reveal where we need GOD’s help to grow in love.

It’s important to remember that love is a fruit of the Spirit; it’s not something we can manufacture on our own. We cannot love people GOD’s way, in our own ability. Love grows as we yield to the Holy Spirit on a daily basis. It’s GOD's fruit, so we need Him to produce it in our lives.

~ Prayer ~
Help me to yield to You everyday
in fellowship and communion,
so that the fruit of love can be
evident and abound in my life.

Today's Challenge:  Are there people around you that are difficult to love? Make up your mind with the help of the Holy Spirit to practically show them GOD’s love the next time you see them. Put this verse up somewhere where you can see it and pray it for a week: May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you - 1 Thessalonians 3:12

Be Prepared & Do Not Stop; for God is Making Moves in Your Life... Your Deliverance Has Come!! (8.14.16)

My Child,
I desire to move in your life today,
so be prepared.

Mountains that once stood in your way will be made flat.
Did I not say I would do this?

I Am He who promised that when you tell the mountain to be cast into the sea, it shall be so. The things you learned in your "wilderness experience" changed, shaped and molded you into a new person.

Now, shake the dust off your feet and straighten your shoulders,
for I Am about to make a move in your life.

Be prepared, for your season is here.
It will move suddenly before your very eyes,
so be prepared to move.

I Am closing the doors on your season of tears and hardships,
and I Am opening new windows of opportunity for you.

Today, make haste, and prepare yourself, for I will not delay.
Today is a day to reap the fruits of your prayers,
the tears you’ve sown, and faith in My Word.

My child, go forward with joy, singing praises to My Name,
for your deliverance has come.

Now, prepare yourself and do not stop,
for your deliverance has come.

Your deliverance has come.

Read and Meditate on His Word:
