If You Want to Experience the Impossible, then Absolute Surrender is Required on this Journey (12.19.14)

My Child, 
Trust Me, and do not be afraid of the way that I am leading you. 

Just let Me lead you, for I know what I have planned and what is ahead. 

Do not try to figure out how it will all come together, have faith in Me, and let Me lead you. Trust and believe that I have only good things planned for you. If you want to experience what your heart has been longing for, then turn loose of your reasoning and let Me lead you. If you want to experience the impossible, then absolute surrender is the requirement on this journey. 

My child, there can be no other way.

If you let Me lead you, I will open doors that man said were closed. 
I will bring people into your life, and take you to places that you thought 
were impossible, for with Me, all things are possible. 

In Me is life more abundantly, and when you trust in Me and allow Me to lead you, you will taste a freedom beyond this world. If you give Me absolute surrender and let Me lead you, you will live a life blessed beyond what the world can understand, for My power, riches and glory will fall upon you.

So, let go of your own understanding, take My hand, and let Me lead you. 
Surrender to the way that I have been nudging you.  
I know there is a part of you that does not want to let go. 
However, if you give Me absolute surrender and follow Me, 
I promise you will never regret it. 

Now, if you are ready to experience what you thought was impossible; 
if you are ready to move beyond the natural realm of things, 
then take My hand and walk with Me, 
for I will indeed take you to places 
beyond what you could have ever imagined.

Let Nothing Distract You from God's Presence, Remain in Him & Prepare Yourself for the Changes to Come (12.18.14)

My Child,
You have allowed the voice of the enemy to enter into your heart. 
Resist what he is trying to do. 
You allow what others say to cause your heart to fear. 
Do not concern yourself with what others are saying or doing. 
They are not seeking My face as you are, they have their own agenda. 
You will lose your focus if you continue to try to follow them.

Cast down every word or thought that causes you to waver 
in your faith or be burdened. Never fear what you hear.
The only one you are to fear is Me. 
Come to Me for guidance for your next step. 
You must remain upon the foundation I have established for you. 
Let nothing distract you from My Presence, remain in Me.

Prepare yourself for the changes to come. 

You have heard Me say this to you over and over again. 
You need to spend more time at My feet, to rest and be refreshed. 
I miss My time with you. 
In My Presence is where you will learn more of Me,
and be strengthened for the times ahead.
You need this.  For it is vital for your growth.

Everything that I have told you concerning your walk with Me, 
I will do as you walk with Me. I am watching over My Word to perform it. 
The only change that will occur is the change that comes 
from your choices along the way. Always pray about the choices you make. 
Pray and trust in Me. I will not fail you. 
My Word is true, and it cannot return to Me void. 
Therefore, do not fear the voice of the enemy.
 
Meditate on My Word: 2 Timothy 1:7
 
 ~ A Prayer Confession ~
Thank You Jesus, 
I know I need to spend more time sitting at Your feet. 
I am able to handle the cares of this life when I spend time there.

I will listen for Your still small voice, 
and shut out the voice of the enemy, 
so I can be led by Your spirit in all things. 

Thank You Lord for watching over Me, 
Thank You for reminding me to stop and quiet my spirit.

Amen

God has Given Us His Spirit, therefore Forgive Yourself & Set Yourself Free (12.17.14)

My Child,
It pleases Me that you have a forgiving spirit, 
and that you have forgiven others as I have forgiven you. 
However, there is still one thing I want you to do; 
and that is to forgive yourself.  

We have talked about this before, 
and it continues to be a problem in your life, 
so I want to help you.

My child, no matter what the enemy tries to tell you, 
or make you feel, let Me remind you that 
there is no condemnation to those who are with Me. 
Your past mistakes can only control you if you allow them to, 
and I thought you wanted Me to have control. 

I cannot be in control when you allow your mistakes 
to overrule the things I want to do in your life.

I gave you My Spirit, and The Spirit is dwelling within you. 
Yes, the same spirit that raised Me is within you. 
Therefore, you have the power and authority 
to rebuke this condemning spirit, use it and set yourself free. 

Set yourself free and stop being a victim. 
When you don’t forgive yourself, it hinders you from moving forward. 
Unforgiveness is holding you in the past 
and keeping you from reaching your destiny.

Dear child, you’ve learned to walk in forgiveness towards others,
now use that same process and learn to forgive yourself. 

Don’t you think it’s time? 
Don’t you think you’ve punished yourself enough? 
I do, and it’s time to forgive yourself, move forward 
and set yourself free.
_________

Romans 8:1 - There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8:9 - But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.

1 John 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Push Through the Fiery Trials and Painful Tests. Do Not Give Up. (12.16.15)

My Child,
Yes, you are being tested. 

I am revealing weaknesses and personal short‐comings in your life. 
I am doing this so that the enemy won’t have any open doors to you. 

I wouldn’t have allowed the test if it weren’t necessary, but it is.
I am refining you and providing opportunities for you,
so that you may be strengthened and become more like Me. 

Are you willing to allow Me to do this? 
Are you willing to surrender all that you are upon My altar, 
so that I can purge you of anything not of Me? 
Are you willing to allow Me to take coal and cleans your lips, 
so that your words will minister grace to those who hear you? 

My child, every fiery trial I allow you to go through, 
is shaping you to be more like Me. 

So, do not give up. 

Push through this painful test, 
so that I can release more of Me through you.
____________
Meditate on God's Word:

Isaiah 6:6-7 - Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.
  
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: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my GOD.

Ephesians 4:29 - Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

Living Under the Leadership of the Holy Spirit (12.15.14)

And no wonder, for satan himself masquerades as an angel of light - 2 Corinthians 11:14

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour - 1 Peter 5:8

Faith Believers,
satan is like an angel of light. his method is compromise and complacency. I find it more difficult to deal with an angel of light than to deal with a roaring lion. At least you know who the enemy is when it’s a roaring lion. However, one must really have the leadership of the Holy Spirit when he deals with an angel of light.

If the followers of Jesus are to live under the leadership of the Holy Spirit, we must remove every hindrance to GOD’s leading. For example, we cannot pray, “Lead me not into the temptation of lust,” and watch sexually provocative movies. We cannot pray, “Lead me away from impure thought,” and read literature that is profane and impure. We cannot submit to the leadership of GOD and retain habits that grieve the Holy Spirit. GOD is ready to lead when Christians are ready to follow.

Prayer is not a plea for the absence of trials, 
but it is supplication for GOD’s leadership in the midst of trials.
  - Marilyn Chaney 
_____

Holy Spirit, 
I submit to Your leadership! 
Help me to quickly recognize the work of satan in my life;
and to see the double-mindedness in my actions,
when they contradict what I say it is that I believe. 

Lead me far away from anything that grieves You. 
Cleanse me and purify me.  
Prepare me for battle, as I cry out to You 
for deliverance from the temptations 
that the enemy sets up against me. 

Lead me into the way of  holiness, 
for I am ready to follow You with my whole heart.

In Jesus' Name,
Amen

If You Walk with God, You will Always Walk in the Light (12.14.14)

My Child,
Joy begins with Me; it begins in My presence.
When you abide in Me, and let My Words abide in you,
every need you have will be fulfilled.

It is only when you look for other things and people to fulfill your needs that loneliness and sadness enters your life. When you find yourself saying, there is something missing, and a hunger for something deeper takes over you; know that I am the One you are looking for. I am the joy that is missing in your life.

Yes, I am the One that you are looking for.
I am the One that you need to have in your life. 

If you spent time delighting yourself in Me, 
those desires in your heart will line up with My Word and overtake you.

You see, when you seek Me first, you will also be able to enjoy the other pleasures that I have given you in this life.  But it won't happen until I am first. As I said, Joy begins with Me, and it begins in My presence.  No one else will be able to fulfill the emptiness that you are feeling.

Looking for other things or anyone else to meet the needs of your heart is a waste of your time.

Come to Me. Talk to Me, open up to Me, share your fears and concerns with Me. Come, and let Me be a part of your life every day. Allow Me to be ever-present in your life, and when darkness tries to overtake you, My joy will be the light that will show you the path to take.

You see, light and darkness are both alike to Me,
and if you walk with Me, you shall walk in the light.

Oh come and abide with Me this day; and My light will fill your day with My joy and My presence. Come and abide with Me this day, for I am what you have been searching for, I am what you need.

Come, for there is no limit to what I am able to do in your life.
__________

Psalm 139:12 - Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

John 15:7 - If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

John 15:11 - These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

John 17:13 - And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

Come Beside the Still Waters & Be Refreshed. For You will Win the Race, in Perfect Time (12.13.14)

My Child,
Come beside the still waters and be refreshed this day. 
You have gone through much, and you need this time 
of refreshing to continue the journey that’s ahead of you. 
It’s important for you to be sensitive to My voice and My leading, 
so that you know when to rest and when to press on forward.

I understand that you feel there doesn’t seem to be enough time 
to do all you think needs to be done; however, I know what 
will happen in your life, and the next steps that you need to take. 

I am the One, who can redeem the time for you, 
so remain sensitive to the prompting of My Spirit.
When you rest according to My command, 
you can be sure that you will have the strength you need 
to run this race with patience.  
And that you will win the race in perfect time. 
Listen to My voice, and be obedient when I call, 
because I will call you to rest when you least expect it.

Trust and be obedient when you hear the word "to rest", 
for I know what is around the corner. 
I see what you cannot see. 

Trust in My guidance, for when you do, I will lead you to the place of peace that I have ordained for you. You will find in this place of rest, ministering angels whom I’ve sent to encourage and strengthen you for the journey that lies ahead. 

So be obedient and sensitive to the still small voice inside, 
urging you to rest beside the still waters.

For resting with Me will lead to your blessing.
__________

Psalm 23:2 - He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

Hebrews 1:14 - Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

Hebrews 12:1 - Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

James 1:22 - But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

Be at Peace, Be Encouraged, Be Calm and Speak Peace to the Storm (12.12.14)

My Child,
Be at peace and be encouraged this day, for you are not on this journey alone. 
I am with you. 

There’s no place you can go, where I am not there.  
I am with you, strengthening you to hold on to the truth. 
I am clearing your mind and giving you a new thought process. 
I am teaching you to think of heavenly things, 
and to let go of the things beneath. 
I want your mind to be so clear, 
that you will always know that you are never alone. 
Be at peace, I don’t want anything to separate you from My love.

I am with you, and it is time to put to death the vain imaginations, and those things that do not speak to My promises. Put away the worries and complaints. Yes, I see them all. I know your heart and I know your needs. It is time to delight yourself in Me, as I delight in you. It is time to rest upon My promises, for what I have ordained shall stand. 

The Words I have spoken to you will be fulfilled. 
I am faithful, so be at peace. 
I am God, your Father, and I would never leave you alone.

I know you say that you cannot sense My presence, but I am with you. I am right here with you in the midst of your storm, holding back the things you cannot see, and I'm teaching you to be calm. I want you to be calm so you can speak peace to the storm. 

Yes, I know that I control the storm, 
but My child, isn’t it time you learn to speak to your storm as well?
_____________  

Job 22:21 - Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.

John 14:18 - I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Romans 8:35 - Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Romans 8:38-39 - For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of GOD, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Everything You Go Through has a Purpose, Embrace Where You Are. (12.11.14)

My Child,
I know it’s hard being where you are right now, and it seems as though you’ve been stuck here forever. Everything within you is screaming, “Please Lord, I've had enough! I cannot do this anymore. When can I move on from here?” My child, can you honestly admit that you are ready to move on? Can you say that you have things in order and that your heart is filled with thanksgiving? Do you want Me to answer that for you? 

You have yet to embrace where I have you; and until you can, you will not be able to move on to the next level. As I have told you before, everything that you go through has a purpose, and there is a purpose for this stronghold. You say to Me that you are grateful for what I have done in your life, yet your actions do not reflect the heart of one filled with gratitude.
 
Let Me remind you of another time when you were seeking Me for a breakthrough to a situation that held you captive for a time. After a season of praying about it, one day you woke up and said, “Lord, nevertheless, not my will but Thy will be done. Lord, I just want to please you.” Immediately after you said that, things began to fall in place. The chains that held you bound were broken by a heart filled with thanksgiving for Me. All that you wanted, all that you desired, was to please Me, and nothing else mattered. Can you say you are in that same place now?

Yes, I know you want change to happen right now. However, until you can accept where I have placed you, and embrace what I am doing in your life, things will remain the same. 

I want you to desire Me, more than you desire what I am capable of doing for you. When you do this, things will fall into place. Embrace where you are, with your heart filled with thanksgiving, you will be amazed once more at what I will do. Yes, I know what you are going through is difficult; however, being thankful for where you were, opened closed doors before, and it will happen again.

Embracing My love and giving Me thanks will cause My peace to saturate your soul and open up the storehouse of Heaven. 

That’s all it takes; just embrace My love and make peace with where I have placed you.
_____________

Jeremiah 29:11 - For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Philippians 4:11 - Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

1 Timothy 6:8 - And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
 
Hebrews 13:5 - Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

When You Find Your Load too Heavy to Bear, Turn to God (12.9.14)

My Child, 
Everything that I have given to you has a purpose.  
To shape and lead you in the way that I have designed for your life. 

When you find that your load is too heavy to bear, 
that is when you should come to Me.  

I do not expect you to carry a load that would destroy you, that is why I am here. Only the enemy will weigh you down with burdens to destroy you. The enemy will try to give you things that I never intended for you to carry. 

That is why it is important for you to seek wisdom; 
so that you can discern what is from Me and what is not.

I do not want you carrying things, that do not belong to you. I do not you want carrying things that will not be blessing your life. If you allow Me to strip away all the burdens that I did not give to you, you will see that My burden is indeed light and My yoke easy. 

You will learn that whatever I have asked you to lift, 
I have already given you the anointing and the grace to carry it.

My child, put each load at My feet right now.  
Lay your burdens down at My feet. 
Give Me all your frustrations and your worries, 
for they do not belong to you. 

Surrender them up to Me.  
Lean on Me and I will be your strength. 
Allow Me to be GOD in each of these situations 
and suddenly things will fall into place. 
All will become clear, and you will see, 
the things I gave you to carry, were not heavy at all.

Now, come to Me, and lay down your burdens.
Lay down the weight of the world 
that you’ve taken on your shoulders 
and I will surely give you rest.
_____________

Psalm 28:7 - The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him

Matthew 11:28-30 - Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
