SOMMER FAMILY BLESSING

Welcome to the blog for Linda Sommer.

My Blog will cover three subjects:

WORD FROM THE LORD, FAMILY, and MINISTRY.

WORD FROM THE LORD
Every day I spend time with the Lord in the morning and He speaks to my heart words that are encouraging, exhorting and sometimes rebuking.

At first, I felt not to share these words with others, but then I realized I am just one of His followers. There are many people who need a word daily from the Lord, but they do not have the time to seek Him. This is why I decided to share the words I received from time to time. The messages are in first person as the the Lord relayed them to my spirtual ears.

FAMILY
We have three sons and nine grandchildren. There is something new happening all the time in the Sommer family. I will post some of these events of interest.

MINISTRY
Tom and I have traveled the world. To find out more about our ministry you may consult our webpage -
http://www.voiceofthesword.com/.
I will keep you updated on future speaking enagements and ministry developments.

ALL CLEAR!

You have experienced great relief after the "All Clear" is declared by the weather station after a tornado warning.  Throughout each year, you also experience the relief when you hear "All Clear!"
A doctor speaks "All Clear" when a cancer has not reoccurred.  A dentist often says "All Clear and Clean!" to announce that you have no cavities.

This year I want you to hear the "All Clear" proclamation from Me.  When you spend time with Me morning by morning and make your requests known to Me, I say, "All Clear."  You will not hear these words audibly, but I speak them to My Father as I intercede and make your requests known to Him. 

Sometimes you may feel that you are not effectively wording your prayers, but keep in mind that I hear your heart before I hear your words.  When you whole heartedly seek Me, My Spirit  relays your message in a clear meaningful way to our throne room in heaven. As you seek My righteousness and My kingdom first, rest assured that the "All Clear Signal" will resound in heaven when you pray.

MATTHEW 6:33

MARRIAGE

It saddens Me that even those who believe in Me do not understand the importance of commitment.  Many consider marriage as a partnership.  However, it is not.  Marriage is a 100% commitment on the part of each spouse.

In order to have a lasting marriage, each spouse must esteem their mate higher than themselves.  Each spouse has to be willing to lay his/her life down for the other mate. 

A good marriage that glorifies Me is an example of My love as the Bridegroom to the church, the Bride.  My enemy knows full well that his plans for destruction of the church will fail.  This is why he attacks families and marriages because they are part of the church.  Pray today for the marriages and families that are under attack by the enemy.

EPHESIANS 5:22-33

INFORMATION/CONFIRMATION

You live in an age when the information you desire is at your fingertips.  Daily, you are bombarded by information that you do not need. 

The information that you need to live a life that is filled with My peace, joy, and love is also at your fingertips.  All you have to do is open My Word to discover this important information..  My Word is your manual for joyous living.  Read it daily because My Word has the power to even discern the thoughts and intents of your own heart.

Some people fill their minds with information that will only provide worldly knowledge.  I want you to fill your mind with holy knowledge.  Allow My Holy Spirit today to lead and guide you in the truths of My Word.  When you are faithful to read and heed My Word daily, My Spirit will confirm to you what will help or what will hinder your growth in faith.

HEBREWS 4:12

NAUGHTY/NICE

I remember how you used to visualize Me in your heart.  You pictured your heart in the shape of a Valentine heart.  I was sitting in that heart shape at a desk.  I had a columned tablet in front of Me.  The title of one column was "Nice."  The other column was titled "Naughty."  You saw me checking off a list just like you believed Santa did.  You really thought that I was making a list and checking it twice to find out if you had been naughty or nice.

I am so glad that you no longer have that picture of Me.  You know with great assurance that My Father loves you just as much as He loves Me.  Now that I do live in your heart, you are complete in Me.  My righteousness is your robe and you have a crown of glory on your head.  When Father looks at you, He sees Me.

Nothing you could do will ever separate you from My love to you.  It does sadden Me when you do not allow Me to work through you those things that please My Father, but I never condemn you.  I love you just the way you are.  My list for you now is titled, "Righteous Daughter of the King."

ISAIAH 54:17; PSALM 8

FIRE

I know how you love to sit by the fire.  Having a fire in the fireplace during this season is especially cozy.  There is much in My Word about fire.  On Pentecost when My followers were gathered in the upper room to wait for the promise of My Father, fire fell from heaven and lighted on each of My followers.  They all were baptized with the fire of My Spirit, and they were then prepared to go out and be My witnesses throughout the world.

On the first Pentecost, 50 days after the giving of the law, fire fell on Mt. Sinai.  On that day 3,000 souls were slain because of their disobedience and idol worship.  When fire fell from heaven in the upper room just after I ascended to heaven, 3,000 souls were saved.

I said that I came to baptize My followers with fire and with the Holy Spirit.  During this season, I want you to rekindle the fire of My Spirit within you.  At this season, He has more gifts He wants to give you.  Those gifts are given to help you minister My Word and My love to others.  Do more this season than just sit by your cozy fire.  Allow My Spirit to once again ignite My holy fire within you.

FEAR NOT

"Fear not,: for I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord."  These were the words spoken by the angel who appeared to the shepherds while they were watching their flocks in the field by night.

At first the shepherds were fearful, but when they heard the rest of the story, they were filled with joy.  We can identify with the feelings of the shepherds because we experience these feelings throughout our lives.  Fear can come upon us when we first go through a horrific trial such as sickness or the death of a loved one.  However, I want you to rest in the assurance that the rest of the story is good.

I want to help you have an eternal perspective in life similar to the one that My servant Paul had.  He considered the afflictions that he suffered in the moment as light because those trials were working for him a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.  During this season and every season, allow Me to fill your mind and heart with My eternal perspective.  When you have this perspective, you will be able to rejoice in the midst of trials.

WRAPPINGS

I know how wrapping presents is not your favorite thing to do.  Sometimes you would love to just give your presents to the wrapping specialist at the departments stores, and let them put their beautiful paper and bows on your gift boxes.

I am an expert at wrapping gifts.  I have many gifts to give you, and they are all wrapped in a special way.  Father wrapped Me in His love and sent Me to be your Savior and Lord.  The gift of My anointing is wrapped in My Holy Spirit.  The gift of My strength is wrapped in My Joy.  My joy is your strength.  You are a special gift to Me and I wrap you daily in My glory.

When you are wrapping your presents this year, think about the gifts I have given you that are wrapped and waiting for you to open them and receive them.

NEHEMIAH 8:10

SNOW

Most everyone desires to have a white Christmas.  The beautiful, bright snow gives a glistening background to the bright Christmas lights.  Did you know that there is no show flake that is identical to another?  Every snow flake is  created uniquely just as you are created uniquely. 

When you meditate on My creative power, it should not amaze you that I even know the number of hairs on your head and I also know when every sparrow falls.  The age of knowledge that you live in with the computers and other inventions that can operate on small micro chips can help you understand more how I am able to keep up with every person on this earth. 

The fact that should amaze you even more is that I love every individual just as much as My Father loves Me.  When Father gave Me to be the perfect sacrifice to reconcile individuals to Him, He was thinking about you.  Sadly many people you know will never believe these true facts about the love My Father and I have for the whole world.  Pray for those you know who have not received Me by faith.  Pray that I will send them the gift of faith to believe that My Word is true and also that My love for them is unconditional. 

JOHN 10:17-18, MATTHEW 10:29-31

PRESENTS/ PRESENCE

It always thrills you to receive unexpected presents at this time of the year from people that you thought had forgotten about you.  I want to give you an unexpected present this year and know with assurance that I never forget you.  The present I want to give you is a new revelation of My presence with you.

I am always blessed when you take time to pray and wait quietly before Me.  I love your songs of worship and praise.  I want to exhort you to take more time in this coming year to wait before Me.
I want to unveil more of Myself to you.  My Spirit desires to give you more understanding of My Word.

I want to show you My glory during this season and in this next year.  Moses asked to see My glory, and when I passed by Him, I declared My full character to him.  I declared that I am merciful, full of grace, forgiving, abundant in goodness and truth, and longsuffering.  As you spend time with Me day by day, I will deepen your understanding of My character.  The greatest present you can receive this year is the presence of My glory with you throughout each day.

EXODUS 34:6-7

RED AND GREEN

The traditional colors used to decorate homes at this season are red and green.  These colors are fitting to celebrate My birth because red symbolizes My shed blood for the remission of your sins. Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sins.

Life is in the blood, and I gave My life's to purchase you complete forgiveness of  your sins.  My blood was different than your blood.  My blood was pure, holy, and sinless. 

Evergreens are used to decorate homes because evergreens are a symbol of My eternal life.  When I gave My life's blood to remove your sins, I also gave you eternal life.  Your life is now like the evergreen trees that live in full color through winter storms and desert winds.  There will be storms and dry times in your life, but know with assurance that you can look forward to spending eternity in My presence.  Throughout your trials, keep in mind also that I ever live to make intercession for you everyday and through every trial.

LEVITICUS 17:10; HEBREWS 7:25

GENEROSITY

Most everyone is in a generous mood during this season.  However, some people have a tendency towards greed and covetousness during this gift giving time.  Guard your heart during this special time of the year.  I want you to desire the best for everyone.  I want you to not have your focus on what gifts you will receive, but on the gifts that you will give.

My Jewish brothers and sisters are celebrating a time of generosity also.  It is fitting that My family on Earth (Jew and Gentile) are thinking of others more than themselves.  This is the mode of operation that I desire for you to be in all year long.

It truly is more blessed to give than receive.  Whenever you esteem a person higher than yourself, you will experience joy, unspeakable and full of glory.  That is what this season is all about. As you spend time with Me, rehearse the gifts that I have given you in the past, and look forward with eager anticipation to receiving the gifts I will give you in this coming year.  Then offer your body daily to Me as a living sacrifice to be used for My glory.  You are the best gift I could ever receive.

PHILIPPIANS 2:3; 1 PETER 1:8

GLITTER

Sometimes in the midst of all the gift wrapping and tree trimming, you usually find flecks of glitter everywhere in your home.  The glitter of this world may brighten your day, but at the end of the day, you have to clean it out of your home.  The same is true of the home of your heart.

My desire is to change and cleanse your heart so that the glitter of this world that attracts you momentarily and causes you to be distracted from My presence, will be replaced with the shining light of My glory.  When Moses came off the mountain, his face shined so brightly from having spent 40 days in My presence that he had to cover his face.

I want your face to shine with the light of My glory during this season.  Do not allow worries, cares, and busyness of this season pull you away from spending time with Me.  During this season, "let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify My Father in heaven."

MATTHEW 5:16

TREES

This is a season when beautiful green trees are brought into homes and decorated with lights and ornaments that bring back happy memories.  Trees are a symbol of life. 

When you look at your Christmas tree this year, think about the life I gave you when I died on the tree to reconcile you to My heavenly Father.  On that fateful day when I hung on a tree, I not only provided a way that your sins and transgressions can be removed as far as the east is from the west, but I also provided a way that every curse in your life can be broken.

I became sin for you as well as a curse for your sake.  My Word records, "Cursed is every one  who hangs on a tree."  When you believed in Me and received the salvation I  provided for you, I redeemed you from the curse of the law.  I am the tree of life Who provides life both physically and spiritually for you.  When you light your tree this season remember that I am the "Light of the World" Who has translated you from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light.

GALATIANS 3:13; JOHN 9:5

REDEEM

After this season is over, many people take the gifts that they could not use or did not want back to the stores where they were purchased.  Their hope is to redeem those gifts for cash money or exchange those gifts for something they wanted for themselves.

When Adam and Eve disobeyed My Father, all mankind received a gift from Satan that they did not want..  When I died on the tree to forgive the sins of the whole world, I gave mankind a beautiful gift in exchange for that corruptible gift Satan gave.  That gift is My grace (God's Riches At Christ's Expense).  Sadly, many have not believed in Me and received that gift of My grace.

On the day I became the perfect sacrifice that pleased My Father, I purchased you My righteousness in exchange for your self-righteousness. I redeemed you from sin and bought you for Myself with the price of My own shed blood. Rejoice today because you have received that gift of grace wrapped in My forgiveness and love.  This is a Christmas gift that will keep on giving for all eternity.

EPHESIANS 2:8-9

OPEN

When you were a little child, you could not sleep on Christmas Eve because you were so looking forward to opening your presents.  When Christmas Day arrived, you ran into the your living room to open the presents under the tree.

I have gifts that I want you to open every day.  The gift of My presence with you is one gift that I want you to open moment by moment throughout your busy day.  The gift of My peace is a gift that you can open whenever you feel anxious or upset.  The gift of My joy is a gift that you can open your heart to receive continually because My joy abides in you always.

Of course, the best gift you can open every day is My love.  Take time today to receive My love.  I have love songs I want to sing to you, but you will never hear them if you do not take time to quiet your soul in My presence.. 

ZEPHENIAH 3:17

MANGER

I was born in a manger filled with hay. 
My mother laid Me gently in the manger filled with hay that supplied food for the animals.  It was fitting that I was in a place that supplied food.  I supplied food for thousands while I was on Earth.

I called Myself "The Bread of Life."  I told My disciples that they would have no part of Me unless they ate My flesh and drank My blood.  They did not understand what I said and many were offended by this statement.  I was conveying to them that I wanted them to experience the same oneness that My Father and I experienced.

Today and every day I want you to come to Me and allow Me to feed you My Word.  I want you to joyfully draw from the wells of salvation that My Spirit can supply you.  My Spirit can also supply you with new wine (a fresh anointing) daily.  I have prepared a table before you.  Come eat and drink.

PSALM 23

GREETINGS

During this time of the year, you love to go to your mailbox to collect all the Christmas greetings from friends and family.  I love to hear your greetings to Me every morning.  Some of My beloved are too busy even to say "Good Morning" to Me.

When you delight yourself in Me by giving Me greetings not only in the morning, but throughout the day, I stand ready to place My desires in your heart for the day.  When I plant My desires in your heart, I grant what I plant.

My servant Paul enjoyed greeting all of the churches he had visited.  He  encouraged them and exhorted them to continue in the faith.  His greetings were usually the same.  He wrote, "Grace be unto you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ."  I speak that same greeting to you today. Receive My grace and My peace moment by moment throughout this day.

COLOSSIANS 1:2; PSALM 37:4

DEMONSTRATIVE

You are so very blessed because you come from a home that showed demonstrative love to you throughout your early and teen years.  So many families do not have My love flowing from their hearts to one another.  Do not take for granted the loving years that you experienced.

Pray for those families who have not experienced My love.  My love releases individuals from jealousy, pride, and selfishness.  There is no warmth in a home where My love is not present in the hearts of the family members.

Your prayers are heard and cold hearts can be warmed by My love.  Stoney hearts can be turned into hearts of flesh when you consistently lift in prayer those individuals who have not experienced My love.  I soften their hearts.  Keep praying for the salvation and the warmth of My love to invade homes and individuals during this season when My Father's love is celebrated because He sent Me as a babe to provide a way for My Father to love people and you as much as He loves Me.

ROMANS 5:5

DOUBT

Be ever alert to My enemy's tactics to cause doubt in your mind.  He tried this tactic in the garden when he asked, "Has God said?"  Then he tried again with Me when he tempted me in the wilderness.  The moment you doubt My existence, is the moment you need to quote My Word even as I did.  I used My Word as the sword against Satan in the wilderness.  You can do the same.

When you have a moment of doubt, simply speak these words, "My righteousness is of Jesus Christ."  My enemy will flee immediately.  Satan and his demonic forces can always attack your own self-righteousness, but his team will not be successful when you know in your heart and speak with your mouth that I am your righteousness.

No weapon formed against you will ever prosper when you condemn the words of judgment that Satan's team sends you, and you declare out loud that I am your righteousness.  This is your privilege and inheritance as one of My beloved.  Wield the truth of My Word as a sword against My enemy, and he will flee.

ISAIAH 54:17

Monday, December 8, 2014

JOY

This is a season for joy.  Joy is a fruit of My Spirit, and I have given you the way that you can remain joyful and that My joy can remain in you.  Even though you have so much to do in this season, I can fill you to overflow with My joy.

There are only three requirements for your joy to be full and for My joy to remain in you.  First, abide in Me.  You abide in Me when you are conscious of My presence with you all the day long.  Fellowship with Me by talking to Me throughout the day and sharing your thoughts with Me. 

Second, abide in My love.  You abide in My love when you receive My love and allow My Holy Spirit to fill your heart with My love. 

Third, abide in My Word.  Renew your mind daily by spending time in My Word. Submit yourself daily to My Holy Spirit Who will reveal My truths to you.  Hide My Word in your heart by memorizing it.  Decree My Word by speaking it out loud.  Do My Word by allowing Me to work within you what pleases My Father.  When you do these three things you will have My joy, unspeakable and full of glory, flowing constantly in your heart and flowing constantly out to others.

GALATIONS 5:22; JOHN 15:4-11

Sunday, December 7, 2014

PATIENCE

You cannot lose your patience when you are trusting in Me to work through you both the desire to do My will and the power to do My will.  Patience is a fruit of My Spirit that can only be attained when you totally depend upon Me instead of your flesh.

Your flesh is extremely impatient.  You want what you want when you want it and in most cases you want it right now.  You live in an instant society that screams "waiting a minute is just too long to wait." 

Think about the times in My Word that even the patriarchs of old paid horrendous consequences for their impatience.  There was Moses who was forbidden to enter the "Promised Land" because in his impatience, he struck the rock instead of speaking to the rock to receive the water I had promised him.  Then there was Abraham who was told that he would have a child of promise, but he went ahead of Me and had a child by someone other than Sarah.  You are still experiencing the dire consequences of his impatience today.

Good things come to those who wait upon Me. Make it your goal to depend upon Me to give you My patience when you need it because you will never attain that patience independently of Me.

PHILIPPIANS 2:13

BELLS

I know how you love to listen to bells that chime the time and also hymns.  During this season you enjoy bell choirs at various churches.  I love bells also.  The early priests had bells on the hem of their robes to announce their presence..  Shepherds have bells on their staffs to alert their sheep to follow them. 

When your doorbell rings, you run to the door with eager anticipation to see who has come to visit you.  When the dinner bell rings, you walk with a face pace to fellowship over a meal with your family and friends.

When you are with Me in heaven, you will hear bell choirs that exceed in excellence anything that you have ever heard on Earth.  Those bells announce My presence. My presence is with you always, so you do not need bells to announce My presence.  However, I want you to recognize My presence with you moment by moment.  Let the joy bells ring in your heart during this season. Thank Me for being your "Good Shepherd" and your "High Priest," and eagerly anticipate fellowshipping with Me.

EXODUS 39:25

DELIVERY

This is a season when you look forward to receiving the mail since you know there will be greetings from many friends who you have not seen in quite a while.  Believe it or not, I have the best delivery system on Earth.  My deliveries come from My throne room to you. 

Angels are My messengers who deliver good news just as they did on that silent night when the shepherds were guarding their flocks by night.  That evening the only sound that was heard was the tinkling of the bells on the shepherds' staffs in the fields.  The silence was interrupted by a heavenly host of My angels who came to announce My birth.

Every day My messengers stand ready to deliver you the answers to  your prayers.  My Holy Spirit also stands ready to deliver His greetings that will bring excitement, encouragement, and engagements.  Yes, My Spirit and My angels are looking forward to putting you in the right place at the right time during this busy season.  Be careful to listen to the leading of My Spirit, and at the end of this season, you will be able to review and report on the many divine engagements that you encountered.

LUKE 2:8-17; HEBREWS 1:13-14

NOW

Faith can only work in the moment.  Every man is given a measure of faith and that measure gives them enough faith to believe in Me.   When you exercise the faith that is within you, recognize that you do not have to work up enough faith to believe for healing or even for miracles when you pray and minister to others.

You have the very faith that I have.  You have been crucified with Me and the life that you now live in the flesh, you live by My faith. I love you and gave Myself for you.  Allow My faith to work through you.  I enjoy pouring both My faith and My love through you.  Faith and love always work together.

Today rely on My Holy Spirit to pour both My love and My faith through you.  When you trust in Me instead of your own ability, you will see miracles.

GALATIANS 2:20, 5:6

TO DO LIST

I see you checking your "To Do List" every day.  Sometimes you just make that list in your mind and on other days you write out your list.  I understand how you might feel rushed and pressed to get things done during this season.  However, I can relieve you of that pressure.

I exhort you to come to Me in the morning.  Commit your works to Me and I will establish your thoughts and prioritize your day.  I have given you My Spirit to be your "Helper," so always call on His help throughout the day.  Whenever you do not know what to do next, ask My Spirit to lead you to do the next thing.

I know what lies ahead of you, and you do not.  This is why dependence upon My Holy Spirit during this busy season is so important.  It delights Me whenever you ask for My help during the day.  My Spirit always stands ready to give you the assistance you need moment by moment.

PROVERBS 16:3

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

REALITY

I know you have heard the expression, "That person is the real thing!"  When you make that comment about a person, you are saying that such a person means what he says and manifests what he believes.
This is what I want people to say about you.  You are the "real thing" because you have the real thing within you.

I am not a thing, but I am the reality of life expressed through creation and through My sustaining power.  I am more real that the person who is sitting next to you.  The spiritual realm that I live in is more real than the atmosphere you breathe. 

You become a person who is the "real thing" when you yield yourself to Me.  I am the One Who gives you life and gives it to you more abundantly.  Yield yourself to the resurrection power within you, My Holy Spirit.

PHILIPPIANS 2:13

Monday, December 1, 2014

TRANSLATOR/TRANSFORMER

You know how difficult it is for you to understand a foreign language.  Instead of learning the language, you usually have to use another person who speaks that language translate what the foreigner is saying.  I have sent you a translator.  He is skilled in translating My Word to you.

Remember when you first began to read your Bible how you had a hard time understanding what various verses meant.  Later you began to rely upon My Spirit to translate the Word to you.  My Spirit is able to open the eyes of your understanding to behold wondrous things as you read My Word.

My Spirit is not only the translator.  He is also the transformer.  He is able to give you the power to do My Word.  Today depend upon My Holy Spirit to translate My Word as you read.  Then allow Him to work through you to perform My Word.  As you yield to My Spirit, you will see miracles in your life and the lives of others who you minister to in a day's time.

PSALM 119:18; ACTS 1:8

LAMB/LION

It is a time when many celebrate My birth, even though I was not born during the time  that many consider the season of My birth..  I was born during the lambing season in Israel in early spring..  I am the "Lamb of God" Who takes away the sins of the world.  I am the "Lamb" who was slain from the foundation of the Earth.

When you worship Me, you often sing, "Worthy is the 'Lamb'."  This is a song that you will sing when you gather with the saints around the crystal sea.  I want you to think about the personality of the lamb.  Lambs silently go to their slaughter, and I also went to My death on the tree without resistance.  I am the "Lamb," Who shed His blood as the perfect sacrifice to reconcile you to My Father.

I am the "Lamb" without spot or blemish, and I am also the "Lion of Judah."  The day will come when all nations will come to worship Me.  At that time I will rule with a rod of iron those nations that fail to come up to worship Me. I am the "Lion of Judah" Who will judge all nations.  The portrayal of Me as the "Lamb" and as the "Lion" reveal two of My most important characteristics.  I am both merciful and just.  Remember always that I mete out My judgment with mercy.

RECORD

When you were in school, you always wanted to have a good grade record.  High scores on your exams were what you wanted to achieve.  However, a good school record does not reveal who you are. 

I have My own way to keep score as you go through life.  I look at the attitude of your heart.  You do not score high in My kingdom when you produce good works without depending upon Me,

Good deeds are important, but I do not keep a record of your good deeds.  I long to have an intimate relationship with you that produces a fruitful life in My Kingdom.  I am the One who works through you both to give you the will and the ability to accomplish all the good works I have designed for you. It always delights Me when you are willing to stay connected to Me moment by moment through your communication with Me and your reading and heeding My Word.  Total dependence upon Me and the power of My Spirit is what I consider a high score as you labor in My Kingdom.

PHILIPPIANS 2:13

EVERYTHING

Everything that is anything belongs to Me.  For by Me, through Me, and for Me was everything created that exists in this world.  When you think about this truth, you may ask yourself this question: "Does anything belong to me?"  The answer is "No."  I have called you to be a good steward of all that I possess.

Even every principality and power is under My control.  I am over all things.  This leads you to ask yourself another question: "Why should I ever worry?"  If you truly believe that everything is in My hands, then you can trust Me with everything. 

You can trust Me with every concern because I have promised to perfect all things that are a concern to you.  When you sincerely trust Me, you can not only thank Me for everything, but you can also thank Me in everything (even the hard trials that you face in this life).  You can release every care to Me with the full assurance that I care for you. Today give Me thanks for everything and in everything.

LIBERTY

There is a phrase in your "Declaration of Independence" that guarantees liberty and justice for all.  I died  and shed My blood to give you liberty.  Because My blood was shed to provide the perfect sacrifice that satisfied My Father's requirements to redeem you from sin, you now can have complete liberty.

Today I want you to think about what My blood purchased for you.  When you believe and receive Me as your Lord and Savior, you also can receive the following: redemption, forgiveness, justification, sanctification, healing, cleansing and glorification through My blood.

Thank Me today for the blood that I shed to take away your sins.  When I died on the tree I also became a curse for you so that you can be delivered from all curses.  Now you can make a declaration of dependence upon Me.  As you depend upon Me and My power through you, you will be able to be an instrument to destroy all the works of the devil.

Wrongs

I know how you much enjoy having a new day.  When you wake up in the morning, I give you a fresh start.  Yesterday is history.  Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift.  Too many of My beloved drag up old hurts from the past and carry them each day that they live.  I want you to live with no regrets.

Today is  truly a gift, and you will have no regrets when you receive and believe the truth that I have forgiven your past. As far as the East is from the West so far have I removed your transgressions.  Those hurts that you carry may result from times when you feel guilty for hurting others or you remember the times others have hurt you.

Today thank Me for not remembering the times you were wronged by others or the times you wronged other people.  Receive My perfect love today.  My perfect love keeps no record of suffered wrongs and I do not want you to either.

DELICATE

When you co-labor with Me in My kingdom on Earth, relationships with people can be delicate.  Be careful not to force anyone who does not want ministry to receive ministry.  I have My timing for everything. 

When I walked on Earth, people who needed help came to Me.  They had a need.  I had already spent hours in the night to early dawn talking with My Father about the next day.  He had already prepared the way for Me to minister to those who would respond to healing and deliverance.

My desire was to help everyone in need, but I was limited by My physical body, and I was also limited to do and say only those things My Father gave Me to do and say.  Be patient with people and trust Me for the right timing and the right place for you to minister to individuals.

1 CORINTHIANS 3:9

STRIFE

Whenever you get into strife with others, take a few minutes to excuse yourself and pray.  The prayer I will answer is, "Lord, thank you for forgiving me of my pride.  I humble myself before you."  At that moment when you pray that prayer, My grace will flood your inner being.

I resist the proud, but I give grace to those who will humble themselves before Me.  Pride is always the source of contention.  It is so easy for your flesh to be activated when someone disagrees with you.  Immediately you want to either defend yourself or prove your point in some way. 

I want you to walk in My Spirit instead of your flesh.  I want you to have a humble walk with Me that allows Me to shine My glory through everything you do and say.  It would be helpful if you would submit to Me every morning by praying this prayer from your heart, "Lord, I humble myself before you this day.  I want to go Your way, not my way today"

JAMES 4:5-8

REPLACE

I love our times together in the morning.  Be careful not to replace those times with other activities.
When you take time to be intimate with Me, I can infuse your being with My Spirit.  You will be strengthened for the day, and you will receive My peace.

So many of My beloved do not even take time to say "Good Morning" to Me.  They forget that I am the "Author and Finisher" of their faith.  Each day you live, I want to add a new chapter to your faith. Faith grows only when you take time to be in My presence, pray, and read My Word.

Today allow Me to infuse you with My faith.  My faith within you will beam forth from you as you receive a fresh anointing every morning and rely on Me throughout your day.

HEBREWS 12:2

INFESTATION

My Word gave many instructions about how to cleanse unclean areas where there was an infestation of leprosy.  Sin can be compared to leprosy.  Be on guard against infestations of sin in your life. 

Confession always precedes cleansing.  John wrote, "If you confess your sins then I am faithful and just to forgive you of your sins and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness."  I have already purchased your forgiveness and your cleansing when I died on the tree to reconcile you to My Father in heaven. However, when you confess your sins, you place yourself in the position to receive My forgiveness and cleansing.

The way to keep clean from sin is three fold.  Spend time with Me daily in prayer and reading My Word.  Stay in fellowship with My beloved.  Paul wrote that we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.  Ask My Spirit today to reveal to you any sins that you need to confess.  Then receive My forgiveness and the cleansing of My blood.

1 JOHN 1:9

LIBERTY

I came to set at liberty all those who are bruised.  There are so many in the world you live in today who have been bruised by abuse and rejection. 

I am the "Great Physician," Who can use the surgical knife of My Word to penetrate and remove all the resentment, anger, and hurt that develops in a person who has experienced much rejection.  I have called you to be My assistant to help Me liberate people who have experienced the crushing blow of rejection.

Today, be aware of those you will encounter.  You may have an opportunity to pray for those who are brokenhearted because of much rejection in their lives.  Listen carefully to My Holy Spirit as He leads you to liberate others in My Name and by My blood that was shed for their deliverance.

ISAIAH 61:1-3

LISTENING


You live in an age where the characteristic of being a good listener is fast dwindling.  People are too busy distributing information instead of listening to what the other person is saying.  You use texting and tweeting to convey your information to others.  Oh yes!  I know about that.  Many times My enemy uses these new technologies to distract believers from My Spirit Who is trying to help them throughout their day.

I sent My Holy Spirit to be your helper.  He is a gentlemen, and He will not invade your life without your invitation.  Daily invite My Holy Spirit to be your helper moment by moment.  You will be amazed at how your day will unfold.

Listening and obeying My Word and My Spirit will always lead to blessings upon blessings.  This day, tune your ear to the right channel (the channel of My Spirit).  My Spirit has been given to lead and guide you into all truth.  Listen and obey Him today.

DEUTERONOMY 28:1-13

Thursday, November 13, 2014

DESPERATION

I do not want you to ever get to the point of desperation.  My enemy, however, loves to get you to that point.  His goal is to make you so desperate about situations that you are experiencing, that you make unwise and ungodly decisions.

I have been made unto you all wisdom.  I stand ready to help you the moment you ask Me to give you wisdom.  In fact, I love it when you come to Me and ask My Spirit to lead and guide you into all truth.  Discernment is a fruit of My wisdom, and if you do not ask Me for wisdom, that fruit will not develop in your life.

Be on guard that you hear from Me before you make any rash decisions in desperate.  I want you to be desperate for Me - desperate to be in My presence and desperate for My Spirit to help you grow and develop the fruits of My Spirit.

1 CORINTHIANS 1:30

FEELINGS

I was touched with the feelings of all of your weaknesses.  Be on guard against My enemy because he would love for you to be embarrassed or to feel condemned when you lose it emotionally.  I fully understand how your emotions can cause you great turmoil.  I experienced this when I was fighting the battle with the enemy both in the wilderness and in the garden.

Feelings can be very deceptive and this is the area that My enemy likes to attack.  Today, give the emotional part of your being to Me, and allow Me to take charge over your emotions.  I have sent My Helper, My very Spirit, to help you when you have those sinking feelings and are in emotional turmoil.

Today trust Me to help you throughout this day to help you to be at peace in the emotional area of your being.  Quietly trust Me throughout this day, and you will see how I can steady your soul.  I am the bishop to your soul.

HEBREWS 4:15; 1 PETER 2:25

REFRESH

I know how you love to refresh things.  You refresh the flowers that need trimming.  New life seems to come into those flowers as you pour out the old water in the vases and replace the water with fresh water.  You refresh your clothes by sending them to be cleaned or airing them out. You also refresh yourself every morning by brushing your teeth and cleaning your face. 

Things look better and feel better after refreshing.  Every day I want you to refresh yourself in My presence by allowing Me to give you a face lift.  As you sit quietly in My presence, I will lift your head heavenward to think about Me and the things that are heavenly, not earthly.  I am the glory and lifter of your head. When you take time in My Word, I will refresh and renew your mind.  When you ask for a fresh anointing of My Spirit, your whole day will be filled with My power.

Today, do not miss your refreshing time with Me.  Each day is a fresh day.  When you take time to refresh yourself in My Spirit, your day will be a day that glorifies Me through what you say and what you do.

PSALM 3:3

Friday, November 7, 2014

DETAIL

I am a God of great detail.  As you read through My Word, you will see that most of My instructions to My people were extremely detailed.  I want you to be detailed like Me in your prayer life.

As you listen to My Spirit to discover what to pray about and how to pray, it is important that you verbalize out loud those things that you want to communicate with Me.  It is My Word going forth on the earth that never returns void.

My Spirit does not have vocal chords.  He uses your vocal chords to give My Word voice.  When you go to prayer each day, ask My Spirit what He wants you to speak.  A good prayer to pray is, "Lord, let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight.

ISAIAH 55:11; PSALM 19:14

LEARNING

People say that they can learn by their mistakes.  As you study My Word, you will clearly see the mistakes that those in ages past made.  My Word is given to you for correction and reproof.  I want your goal to be to learn from My Word how to prevent your making wrong decisions.

My Word truly is a lamp to your feet.  Before you study any school book, you usually have to make sure that you have good lighting so that you will not miss any facts that are presented on the page.
I have given you My Holy Spirit Who is able to throw a light on those things you need to know as you face each day.

Before you read My Word, ask My Spirit to enlighten your understanding of My truths presented.
My Spirit is your instructor in life.  Listen carefully to Him as He teaches you day by day.  Always remember that you have to have an open Bible and sit in the classroom of My presence in order to learn those things that will help you live a fruitful life in My Kingdom.

PSALM 119:105

Wednesday, November 5, 2014

PRUDENCE

You live in an age when you need to be prudent.  Prudence is the ability to exercise sound judgment in practical matters.  Prudence is a fruit of My Wisdom.

Remember to always ask Me for wisdom before you make important decisions.  I know the beginning from the end, and I am able to reveal exactly the direction you should take as you make decisions about your future.

I have already ordained works for you to do from the foundation of the earth.  As you walk in My wisdom, you will accomplish those works.  Many do not inquire of Me before they make decisions.  My Word is written for your correction and instruction in righteousness.  Look into My Word in the days ahead, and I will direct your steps as you delight yourself in Me.

2 TIMOTHY 3:16; PSALM 37:23

DEEP

I want you to dig deeper into My Word and grow deeper in My love.  This takes time.  You will have to be intentional to give more time in your day to this, but the dividends in the Spirit will be great.

You can only give others what you receive from Me.  My goal in your life is to immerse you deeper in My Word and My Spirit.  It is My Spirit that brings to your remembrance everything I have said.  The Words that I spoke when I was on Earth will give you insight into how to minister to others.

I want you to study My responses to people and also the Words I spoke to them as they came to Me for help in their times of need.  When you are faithful to do these things, I will be able to flow My love and My Word through you to bless many, many people.

RAIN

My coming shall be like the latter and former rain unto the earth.  Zechariah exhorts believers to ask for rain at the time of the later rain.  The time of the later rain is the time that I will return to Earth.

Every time you ask for rain in the time of the later rain, you are praying for My soon return.  Hosea wrote that My going forth is prepared as the morning; and that I will come to Earth as the rain, as the latter and former rain.

When you see My rainbow in the sky, you remember that My rainbow was a sign of My covenant with Noah to never destroy Earth again with a flood.  Whenever you experience a rainy day, remember that I will come like the rain and rejoice because I am coming soon.

ELECTION

You have a great privilege where you live to elect your leaders.  There are many places throughout the world where the leaders are not chosen by the people and often oppress the people.

I am the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings, and I govern all things.  The government is truly on My shoulders.  I never use My position to lord it over others.  Instead, it is My delight to choose you and other believers to be My beloved.

The sad part about the position that I am in as the "Supreme Leader" is that many are chosen, but few hear My call to them. I came to save the world, but even My own brethren rejected Me.  Thank Me today for your right to vote, and use that right in an intelligent way.  Ask for the discernment that My Spirit can give you before you vote.            

ISAIAH 9:6-7

RECALL

You live in a day when large companies recall their products for safety reasons.  I am the Creator of all things, and I never have to recall anything that I have made, especially you.  You are fearfully and wonderfully made.  I even know how many hairs you have on your head today.

Mankind was designed to enjoy life in the presence of My Father and Me for all eternity.  However, when sin entered the world, We had to begin again.  Only eight souls were saved from the flood that destroyed every living thing.

Father sent Me to provide safety from the destructive power of sin.  There was no need to destroy mankind again because when I died on the tree to forgive the world of sin, all those who believe in Me now have a safe place in Me for all eternity.  Rejoice today for the safe hiding place that I have provided for you.  That hiding place is in Me, the Rock of your Salvation.  You are now hid with Me in My Father's heart.

PSALM 91; COLOSSIANS 3:3

LOST

I rejoice that you have learned the secret to finding things that you have lost.  You learned to say out loud, "All things lost found in the name of Jesus."  Whenever you say this, My angels come to attention and are ready to help you.

Sometimes you forget that My angels ever stand ready to assist you even in the most mundane things.  My angels are ministering spirits sent to minister to the saints.  They hearken to the voice of My Word and the sound of My name.

Give My angels many opportunities to help you throughout this day by speaking My name out loud and My Word out loud.

CREDENTIALS

It seems that many people in the world seek to impress others by their credentials (educational degrees, titles, wealth, and health).  Those who are impressed by worldly credentials do not realize that those credentials are only temporary. 

I offer everyone who believes in Me eternal credentials.  As you study My Word, you will find that few people I used to expand My kingdom on Earth had credentials that would impress those in the world.  I usually choose the foolish things of this world to confound the wise and the weak things of the world to confound the mighty things.

My servant Paul had impressive worldly credentials.  However, he counted them as nothing compared to the glory that I offered him.  The eternal credentials I offer you are My riches in glory and My very presence that dwells within you.  I am always impressed when I see My faith within you put into action by your words and your deeds.

EXPERIENCE

Employers usually look for the on the job experience on the resume of a possible future employee.  I am not your employer, but I am a co-employee with you.  We are co-laborers together and our Employer is My Father.  The job that we both have is to do the will of My Father.

When Father sent Me to Earth, I had no experience as an earthbound man.  However, My qualifications to redeem the world from the bondage of sin did not depend upon My experience.  I was appointed from the foundation of the world to be the perfect sacrifice to give mankind the opportunity to be reconciled to My Father.

I was willing to offer Myself as that perfect sacrifice, and this pleased My Father.  You also do not need "on the job experience" to please My Father (Your Heavenly Employer).  What pleases My Father is your willingness to daily offer yourself as a living sacrifice to do My Father's will.  It is your faith in Me to work through you that pleases My Father.

COLLECT

I have heard you say, "Just give me a few minutes to collect my thoughts before I speak.  It is a wise thing always to collect your thoughts before you speak.

The thoughts that  you should collect are the thoughts that Paul wrote about.  He exhorted believers to think on those things that are honest, just, lovely, of good report, virtuous, and praiseworthy.  When these are the thoughts that you collect before you say anything to another person, you can be confident that your conversations will be according to My will.

My will is that your speech edifies others.  Fill your mind daily with My Word because My Word is My will.

PHILIPPIANS 4:8

INTERFERENCE

One of My enemy's tactics is to cause interference.  He loves to get you distracted from the plans I have for you today.  When this happens to you, take a few minutes to stop and pray and ask the Holy Spirit to help you regain your focus.

Keep your focus on Me throughout your day, and commit all that you have to do in that day's time to My Holy Spirit.  He will help you prioritize your day.  He can also help you remember anything that you have forgotten.

I sent My helper not just to help you understand My Word, but also to help your with the mundane, practical things that you face daily.

PROVERBS 16:2

EXCITING

When you follow the lead of My Holy Spirit, your life will be exciting.  My Spirit will lead you to be in the right place at the right time.  When I walked on Earth, all My appointments were divine appointments designed by My Father.

My Father has divine appointments for you today, so listen carefully to My Spirit when you feel those gentle nudges to go somewhere or to see someone.  Train yourself to hear from My Spirit and then ask for your heart to be ever open to obey those gentle promptings.

Look forward to this day.  There are people I want to touch through you and there are words of encouragement that I want you to give to others.  Have an exciting day.

JOHN 5:17

Friday, October 17, 2014

DEATH/LIFE

Both death and life are in the power of the tongue.  Words are containers that can contain life or death.  What you say daily is extremely important.  When I walked on Earth, I only said what My Father gave Me to say.

My enemy daily wants you to put curses on yourself and on others.  You may think that you never put a curse on anyone.  However, whenever you speak negatively about anyone or even yourself, you have placed a curse over them and yourself. 

Today is a new day.  It is a day that you can dedicate yourself to speaking only those things that edify instead of tearing down people and yourself with negative words.  Ask My Holy Spirit to help you to fulfill this commitment.  Before you speak about others or yourself, listen to the direction of My Spirit.  I want you to speak life to people, not death.

PROVERBS 18:21

Thursday, October 16, 2014

RESIST

You have an enemy who is tireless in his efforts to take you down.  However, greater is He Who is in you than he that is in the world.  Recognize always that I am within you.  I am greater than any weapon that My enemy forms against you.

To resist My enemy, simply submit yourself first to Me.  I am the One Who will fight your battles and it is My joy to do this for you. 

Once you have submitted to Me by declaring out loud that your righteousness is of Me, then use your spiritual weapons to resist my enemy.  Your declarations on Earth must go forward in order to defeat the enemy. Declare My Name, My Word, and My Blood out loud and the enemy will flee from you.

1 JOHN 4:4; JAMES 4:7

BIRTHDAYS

Today I celebrate with you your 74th birthday.  I knew you before you were born and even before that.  What a  joy it was for Me to see you and your twin sister enter My kingdom when you were nine years old.  Since that time, I have seen you grow in your relationship with Me.

The angels rejoice with Me whenever another person has their special birthday (the day they are born into My kingdom).  The greatest gifts I can ever receive is to see a person praising, thanking, and worshiping Me.

There are other gifts that I love to receive.  Whenever you release your burdens to Me, I receive them as gifts, wrapped in silver and gold.  It thrills Me to receive those burdens because then I am able to open those gifts of your burdens and answer the many prayers that were a concern to you.  I perfect everything that is a concern to you.  Rejoice this day because on this your birthday, I am taking every burden you have given Me and I am perfecting those concerns.

PSALM 138:8

TRAVEL

I know how relieved you feel when you know that everything you need for a trip is packed, in the car, and ready to go.  Total relief, however, does not come until your car backs out of your driveway and you arrive at your destination and unpack to discover that you did not forget anything.

While you are on Earth, you are taking a journey heavenward.  There are some things that I want you to pack daily just incase your journey takes place earlier than you were thinking.  Pack an abundance of prayer, the anointing of My Holy Spirit, and time in My Word and in My presence daily.  You then will be ready for My return or your appointment to go to heaven every day that you live.

I know how you already visualize the places you will travel long before you take a trip on Earth.  Your days will be filled with joy when you visualize your final destination in heaven with Me and all of your beloved who have gone before.  Have a blessed day today and everyday as you look forward with eager anticipation for  your final journey.

AWAKE

Do you realize that My angels are watching over you when you sleep?  You can recall the deep pleasure you had when you watched your small children sleeping soundly.  I have the same pleasure as My angels observe your sleep.

I wake you up with My kiss.  I know you cannot feel that kiss, but you do sense My presence with you.  When you awake, I long for your first thoughts to be about Me.  Sometimes I will give you a song in your spirit that will awaken you. 

Once your feet hit the floor, you can praise Me for another day.  Never forget that My presence is always with you.  Train yourself to be awake to My presence all during the day.  When you do this, your joy will be full and My joy will remain in you.

PSALM 16:11

Atonement.

My Jewish brethren who know Me as Messiah still observe Yom Kippur.  It is a day of reflection for them and a day when they allow Me to examine their hearts.  In fact, the ten days between the Feast of Trumpets and Yom Kippur are days of reflection.  .
 
Instruction was given in the Torah for the High Priest to only go in once a year into the Holy of Holies where he took the blood of a sacrificed animal to cover the sins of the people.  I am the "Lamb of God" Who was slain from the foundation of the world to not only cover your sins, but also to remove your sins forever.

Reflect today on the blood atonement that I provided when I bore the sins of the world in My own body to offer forgiveness of sins (past, present, and future) to all who will believe in Me.  Rejoice today because My atoning blood has purchased you the right to be in a relationship with My Father.  Look at the word "atonement" and remember today that you are at one with Me, My Father, and My Holy Spirit who all dwell within you.

PLACES

My Father has ordained certain places for you to go just as He ordained that Abraham leave his home and go to the land that was promised Him.  Today, I am making intercession for you to arrive at those places that are appointed for you and that you do what is ordained for you to do in those places.

My Holy Spirit has been given to you to help you to be in the right place at the right time.  Pray daily that you will be able to hear clearly from My Spirit as He leads you to those places.

Remember always that I am your "Good Shepherd" who leads you in paths of righteousness for My name's sake.  Every where My Spirit leads you is a place where I can show forth My righteousness and My glory through what you do an say.  Look forward to going to those places today and listen carefully to My Spirit as He leads you.

GENESIS 12:1-4; PSALM 23

EXAMINE

Today is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.  It is a day when believers examine their hearts.  My Father humbles Himself to look into the hearts of men and women.  Father, by His Spirit, gave Me the power to discern the hearts of people when I walked on Earth.  Father has made Me now the judge of hearts.

Daily, I want you to lift your heart up to Me and allow Me to examine your heart.  Only I have the power to reveal to you what is in your heart.  Whatever I reveal to you that is not pleasing to Me, I am able to heal and make new.  Be open with Me as you pray and receive gladly any correction or instruction that I may give you about what is in your heart.

Never condemn yourself about what is in your heart.  John wrote that if your own heart condemns you that I am greater than your heart.  Allow My Holy Spirit to flow My love into your heart and out of your heart to others.

ROMANS 5:5; 1 JOHN 3:20-21

TRANSLATION

When the tower of Babel was built, We had to confuse the language because otherwise mankind would try to build their own empires without depending upon My Father and Me.  Since that time, the many languages throughout the world have to be translated for others to understand what is being said.

I sent the comforter, My Holy Spirit, to you to help you understand the heavenly language.  As you read My Word, My Holy Spirit can translate what is written in an understandable way so that you can apply the knowledge you receive to your every day life.  I am all Wisdom and My Spirit can anoint you with wisdom, understanding, knowledge and counsel as you read My Word.

I have promised to reveal My secrets to the righteous.  It brings great joy to My heart when you take the translation My Spirit has given you and you receive the secrets from My Word.  I especially rejoice when you put those secrets into action and also teach others the wisdom you have gleaned from My Word.

GENESIS 11:1-10; DANIEL 2:28-29, 47

SHAME

When Adam and Eve disobeyed My Father, they hid themselves because they were afraid and ashamed.  Ever since that time, people often run from My presence when they sin because they fear that I will punish them.  They are ashamed to face Me.  They forget what I purchased for them with My very own blood when I died on the cross.

When I died on the cross, I bore not only the sins of the world, but I also bore the rejection, shame, punishment, and fear that often result when a person sins.  Of course, when you sin, you will have consequences, but I came to cleanse and forgive all of your sins (past, present, and future).

I want you to run to Me whenever you sin.  Confess your sins and receive My forgiveness and cleansing.  Shame and fear of Me need never be a part of your life ever.  Remember I invited you to come to Me when you are heavy laden so that I can take every burden from you.  Shame and fear are great burdens that will separate you from fellowshipping with Me.  I long for you to enjoy My presence with you always.

TRYING

You live in trying times.  Try as you may, you will not be able to change the times.  However, you can change your attitude about the times.  I want you to live in thanksgiving and praise to Me no matter what is going on in the world.

During the dark days ahead, more than ever, you will have to rely on the leading of My Spirit.  He will lead you to be at the right place at the right time just as My Father led Me by the Spirit to those places My Father had planned for Me to be. 

Listen carefully to My Spirit, and stop trying to figure out in your mind your next step.  Instead, ask My Spirit to tell you the next step.  At the end of the day, you will realize how My hand has been upon you constantly to protect you and lead you to one divine appointment after another.

RECEIVE

It is difficult for some people to receive.  People who have had their hearts broken by others have an issue with trust.  It is nearly impossible for people who have experienced much rejection in their lifetime to trust others.  However, nothing is impossible with Me.

I came to heal broken hearted people.  The psalmist David prayed, "Unite My heart to fear your name."  This is a good prayer to pray for those who have be rejected by others.  When a person has a divided heart, they have a hard time committing themselves to Me.

Pray for those today who you know have had rejection in their lives.  Often the rejection could have occurred in the womb of their mother who did not want a child.  All things are possible with Me.  Release the hearts of rejected people to Me today and expect Me to touch and heal their hearts.

ENDURENCE

When you are going through a trial, you often ask, "How long will this last?"  Instead of focusing on the future time when you will come out of a trial, focus on Me moment by moment, and you then will be able to endure the trial.  When you focus on My presence with you through every trial, you will have the blessed experience of trusting in Me more and more each day.

I sent My Holy Spirit to comfort you and strengthen you on your journey through trials.  My Spirit will give you the ability to endure every trying situation.  Know with assurance that I would love to deliver you instantly from trying times, but as you will see in My Word, instant deliverance from trials was the exception rather than the rule.

Every trial that you face is a test of faith.  Paul wrote, "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory: While we look not at the things that are seen, but at the things that are not seen, for the things that are seen are temporary, but the things that are not seen are eternal (2 CORINTHIANS 4:17-18)." Focus on the things eternal when you go through trials.  Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.

PRUDENCE

I want My beloved to be prudent.  Prudence is a fruit of My wisdom.  When you are prudent, you not only manage your finances well, but My wisdom will also enable you to manage what you say well.

I desire for your conversations to always edify the person you are speaking to at the time.  This does not mean that you have to restrain yourself from speaking the truth.  However, I want you to speak the truth in love.

Make it your goal every day to allow My love to flow through you to whomever you are speaking to moment by moment.  When you speak to people on the phone or in person, understand that I want My love conveyed to that person in a special way.  Ask My Holy Spirit today to help you with your conversations.  My Spirit will only be able to guide what you speak when you ask Him to help you and to lead you.  My Spirit daily welcomes the invitation for Him to order your conversation aright.

GREAT

You only can have a small view of My greatness while you are on Earth.  However, when you look at the night sky, you can see My might and My power.  I have named each star.  My voice is like the sound of rushing waters. However, My greatness is best displayed by My beloved Who love others by the power of My Spirit.

I gave My Spirit to so fill your heart with My love that My love will flow supernaturally through you to others.  You do not have to force yourself to love people.  Offer yourself to Me daily as a living sacrifice and ask My Spirit to give you a fresh anointing.

People will come to know Me as you allow My love to fill your heart.  I have planted the desire within you to love others, and  I will always grant what I plant.  Look forward today for My love to be displayed through you.

ROMANS 5:5

WITHSTAND

You will always be able to withstand (endure) trials because you know with an assurance that I will be standing with you.  When you walk through fiery trials, I will keep your from being burned.  When you walk through the waves of adversity, I will keep those waters from overflowing you.

I know your desire is not to face such trials, but always remember that My face is ever before you.
Seek My face during those times of trial, and My peace that passes all understanding will keep your heart from fear and your mind from worry.

ISAIAH 43:2

DELUGE

You live in an age when there is a deluge of knowledge being transmitted through technology.  I know how you have difficulty focusing on Me because of all the distractions that exist in your age.

When the enemy comes in like a flood to distract you from what I have called you to do in My kingdom, remember that I have raised up a standard to help you during those times when you feel immersed in the activities of this world.  That standard is My Holy Spirit.

Today and every day, center yourself in Me by spending first a time of quiet in My presence.  Ask Me to lead you to something in My Word that I want to speak to you that day.  Ask Me to immerse you with My Spirit of wisdom and understanding, counsel and might, and knowledge of the fear of Me.  The fear of Me is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge.  You experience the fear of Me when you have an awesome respect for My sovereignty and the knowledge of how much I love you.

DETERMINATION


I want you to be determined to win every battle with My enemy, but always remember that the battle is Mine and the victory is yours.  Use the authority I have given you and the weapons of warfare I have given you.  You are a co-laborer with Me, and the sword of My Spirit (My Word) must be declared out loud when you resist My enemy.

Follow My example.  I used the Word of My Father continually when My enemy tempted Me in the wilderness.  For victory to be won in the spirit realm, you have to pray in the Spirit, pray with all kinds of prayer, and declare My Word out loud.

It will be to your detriment if you are not alert, vigilant, and determined to do your part on Earth while I and My heavenly hosts win the battle for you in the spirit realm.  Submit yourself to Me by releasing the battle to Me, and then use the weapons I lead you to use.  I have given you the keys to the kingdom and whatever you bind on Earth is bound in heaven and whatever you loose on Earth is loosed in heaven (the spiritual realm).

JAMES 4:7-8; MATTHEW 16:19

DEBT

I know how you rejoice when a debt that you owed is finally paid off.  My Word exhorts those who believe in Me to owe no man any thing but to love him.  This is the way to stay out of debt, but once you encounter debt, trust Me to help you be released from financial debt.  Remember always that I own a cattle on a thousand hills.

Stay faithful in your giving into My kingdom and remain in thanksgiving for the debt that I paid for you.  Take your focus off of your finances and focus on Me.  I have a treasure house in heaven that is unlimited.  Ask for My wisdom about how to manage your finances.  When you are faithful in your tithe to Me, I will open My treasure house to you.  However, when you make unwise decisions, there are always consequences.

One of the tactics of My enemy is to get you imprisoned by the debts you owe.  Follow the lead of My Spirit in every financial decision and I will help you get out of debt.

ROMANS 13:8

PASSIVE

Some of My beloved have become passive in their resistance against My enemy.  I do not want you ever to let your guard down against Satan.  He is your adversary, and I am your advocate.  It is up to you to use the weapons of your warfare against him.

I want you to aggressively use the mighty weapons I have given you.  They are not carnal.  They are mighty through Me to pull down every stronghold in your life and to resist every attack of the enemy.
Your enemy is like a roaring lion who seeks whom he can devour, but you will never be subject to his tactics if you will humble yourself and submit yourself to Me every morning.

Let Me review your weapons.  Your mightiest weapon is My love.  Pray daily that My Holy Spirit will so fill your heart with My love so that your heart will be protected from any wounding or condemnation by others.  Hide yourself in My armor of light - putting on the breastplate of righteousness, the helmet of salvation, using the shield of faith and the sword of My Spirit to resist the enemy.  Fill yourself with My Word ( the belt of truth) by meditating on it day and night.  Witness to others (the gospel shoes).  Above all declare My name and My blood against the enemy when he attacks you.  Pray always in the spirit and use all kinds of prayer.  When you use these weapons, My enemy will have no advantage over you.

IMAGE

As you behold Me, you are changed from glory to glory.  I want you to see yourself as I see you.  I see yourself filled with My righteousness, bathed in My glory, invaded by My Spirit.  Think of yourself this way during the day.  When you think of yourself this way and see yourself as I see you, you are not in pride.  In fact, true humility is seeing yourself as I see you.

As a man thinks in his heart so is he.  Recognize that you are complete in Me and that when the Father sees you, He sees Me within you.  My Father loves you with the very same love that He loves Me.

The image you have of yourself clothed in My righteousness will make My enemy back away from you.  When you know who you are in Me and declare out loud that your righteousness is of Me, My enemy will have to flee.  All idolatry is based on false images (imaginations man has thought up, not Me). Seeing your self stamped with My image is not idolatry.  It is the truth.

2 CORINTHIANS 3:18; ISAIAH 54:17

ASK

You have not because you ask not.  I love it when you ask Me to give you direction, wisdom, and instruction.  I love it when you ask Me to fulfill all My good plans for you while you are on Earth.  I love it when you ask for a fresh anointing every morning.  I love it when you ask Me to protect and provide for yourself and others.

Ask Me and keep asking the Father in My name.  I want you to ask even for the impossible.  All things are possible through Me.  There is nothing to hard for Me.  As you pray for yourself and for others, ask Me to give you a faith vision about both the people and the circumstances that you are lifting before Me.

I always delight in granting the desires that I have planted in your heart.  Ask Me today to plant My desires in your heart and rest assured that I always grant what I plant.

JOHN 16:26-27

REINFORCE

Your job in My kingdom is to reinforce My Word in the lives of others as they face various trials.
It is My Word that will give them the support they need during even horrendous trials

Just as a garment is reinforced by stitching the seams over and over again, speaking My Word to others will reinforce the tapestry of their lives in such a way that they will be able to even be joyful in the midst of trials.

It is My Word that strengthens your faith and the faith of others.  I challenge you to be ready in season and out to give a word of hope from My Word to those who are experiencing difficulty in their lives.  Abide in My Word.

JOHN 15:7

TRANSFORMATION

I rejoice when I see a transformation take place in a person's life.  My Spirit is able to transform a person to be more like Me daily.  Be confident that His assignment is to change you from glory to glory.  However, you do play a part as He seeks to conform you to My image.

You are predestined to be conformed to My image,  When you see Me face to face, you will be like Me.  Until that time, you can cooperate with My Spirit in this process of transformation by abiding in My Word, abiding in My presence, and abiding in My love.

Every day let abiding in My Word, abiding in My presence, and abiding in My love be your first priority of the day.  Begin your day by reading My Word and asking My Spirit to reveal My truths to you.  During the rest of the day, be aware of My presence with you moment by moment.  Ask My Spirit to fill your heart anew with My love so that you can transmit that love to others.

ROMANS 8:29-30; JOHN 15

SUBCONSCIOUS

When Adam and Eve were created, they had no need for a conscience.  They communicated with Me and My Father spirit to Spirit.  It was not until they ate the forbidden fruit that they had the knowledge of good and evil.  Now everyone is born with a conscience (the knowledge of good and evil). 

There is also a deeper level of consciousness called the subconscious.  When you sleep at night, your subconscious is active.  Often My enemy wants to send his thoughts to your subconscious while you sleep.  This is why you may experience dreams that do not glorify Me.

Pray every night before you go to sleep and cover your subconscious with My blood.  When you do this I am able to give you a sweet sleep without interference from My enemy.  Also if you read something from My Word before you retire, you will have double protection over your dream life.

PROVERBS 3:24

FRUSTRATION

Whenever you are frustrated, take a few minutes to call upon My help.  The root of frustration is pride.  You have your plans and when they are not working out the way that you think they should, you become frustrated.

I sent My helper to help you.  Focus on Me the moment you become frustrated.  Usually your frustration occurs when you are trying to do too many things at one time.  My Spirit is a Spirit of order and He will help you as you commit what you have to do in a day's time to Him.

I gave My peace as your inheritance and you can tap into that peace moment by moment.  Frustration affects both your mind and your body.  Cast the care of the day upon Me and allow My Spirit to help you moment by moment.

PROVERBS 16:3; MATTHEW 11:28-30; JOHN 14:27

FLOW

Often My Spirit is compared to water and  wind.  Both water and wind have a flow, and this is exactly how My Spirit works in your life.  When you ask for My Spirit to help you throughout your day in the morning before you step out your door, you will see a flow in your life that far exceeds anything you could have written down on your "To Do List."

It was easier in My day for the Holy Spirit to flow in the lives of My beloved because they did not have all the distractions that your age has.  I see how believers today jump into their cars to run errands or to deliver or pick up their children at various events.  This is why those who believe in Me in your age have to be intentional to allow My Holy Spirit's anointing to flow through them.

Most of My beloved compartmentalize their lives.  They go from work to other events, and do not realize that My Spirit can flow easily through them to whoever and whatever they encounter in a day's time.  Ask My Spirit today to put you in the right place at the right time, and commit every work to Him.  You will be surprised at the end of the day at the many opportunities My Spirit gave you to bring the good news of My kingdom to others.

PSALM 37:5; PROVERBS 16:3

PLANS

It is good for you to plan ahead, but when you walk in My Spirit, it is a moment by moment walk.
Hold loosely your future plans and embrace the moments I give you.  Be alert to the opportunities I give you during the minutes of each day.

The walk in My Spirit is an unfolding walk that flows from one divine appointment to another.  Recognize that whoever is in the moment besides you is someone who needs a word of encouragement and exhortation.  As the days draws nigh to My coming, things in the world will become more difficult for everyone.

Take every opportunity to sow My Word into the hearts of those you see or talk with during each day.  My Word has sustaining power, and it also is the foundation that your faith is based upon.
Review My promises and hold tightly to them in the days ahead.

EPHESIANS 5:15-16

SABBATH REST

There is a Sabbath rest that I desire for all who believe in Me to keep.  When you rest every care upon Me, and believe with all of your heart that I will help you with those cares, you then enter that "Sabbath Rest."

As long as you try to work out things on your own without My help, you will experience frustration and tension.  The "Sabbath Rest" only occurs in your life when you cease from your own works and strivings to accomplish My will, and instead ask the "Helper" I sent you to help you.

The Children of Israel never entered the "Sabbath Rest" because of their unbelief.  Today release every care to Me and believe that I not only will hear your prayers, but I also will answer them.  Believe that I am able to perfect everything that is a concern to you, and freely ask My Holy Spirit to help you throughout the day.

HEBREWS 3:19; PSALM 138:8

RETIREMENT

I have no retirement program.  The moment you accepted Me as your LORD and SAVIOR, you entered the program of My kingdom.  My kingdom is eternal, and as you live out your days, keep in mind that living in My kingdom offers no pay, but it does offer blessings upon blessings.

Your job description is "Doing the will of My Father."  It is My Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom, but your part is to receive the instructions of My Spirit as He leads you to do and say what is My Father's will.  When you trust and obey Me, you will have a joy-filled life no matter how many trials you may experience.

Commit your day and your way to My Holy Spirit in the morning, and at the end of the day you will see how I have been able to share My kingdom with others.  My kingdom is not meat or drink, but it is righteousness, peace, and joy in My Holy Spirit.  Enjoy walking in My Kingdom today, and allow My Holy Spirit to re-fire you with My anointing.

ROMANS 14:17; LUKE 12:32

DESIGNATE

I know that at times you feel like you just aimlessly go through a day without much of a plan.  However, when you pray every morning that I will direct your path and put you in the right place at the right time, you can be confident that I will answer that prayer.

I have a designated assignment for you daily.  To tune into that assignment, all you have to do is listen to the gentle promptings of My Holy Spirit.  My Spirit will give you the direction you need because daily you do have a designated design for your life.

Remember that your life is not your own.  You were bought with the precious price of My own blood.  Therefore, My life within you will be demonstrated in what you do and say as you depend upon My Spirit moment by moment.

1 CORINTHIANS 6:20

Thursday, September 4, 2014

AUDIENCE

I do not want to make you uncomfortable, but I do want you to know that you have an audience that observes you each moment of the day.  I and My Father and My Holy Spirit observe you and there are angels who also observe you.  Be on the alert because there are also demonic spirits who observe you.

Father, My Holy Spirit, and I observe you to help you through the day.  My angels also stand ready to give you assistance throughout each moment of the day.  My angels hearken to the voice of My Word and the sound of My name. Whenever you speak My Word or call out My name, they come to attention and stand ready to give you aid. Angels are ministering spirits sent to assist all those who believe in Me.

The demonic spirits cannot read your mind, but they observe your actions and they hear what you say.  They constantly look for weaknesses in your flesh so that they can oppress and harass you.  Remember always that you do have an audience.  However, you are not a performer.  You live and move and have your being in Me.  Your actions and what you say should always reflect and demonstrate Who I am in you.

PSALM 103:20; HEBREWS 1:14;ACTS 17:28

TREAT

I know that your goal is to treat others as you would like them to treat you.  However, sometimes in a moment of weakness, your flesh wins over your spirit and others may be hurt by what you say or do.

To overcome the tendency to give in to your fleshly emotions and thoughts, you have to depend upon My Holy Spirit moment by moment.  Pray quietly when someone is rude to you.  Those few moments in silent prayer will enable you to respond in love rather than react in your flesh.

Know with great assurance that I sent you My Helper, My Holy Spirit, to be on duty night and day in your life.  However, your part is to depend upon Him and to be conscious of His presence with you all during the day.  Offer your body to Me daily and ask Me to use you as an instrument of My righteousness, peace, love, and joy.  When you do this in the morning, you will be ready to respond in love every moment of the day.

ROMANS 12:1-2

Monday, September 1, 2014

GOING

I have heard you many times say, "I am going to do that."  Often you do not do what you were going to do."  Instead of thinking about what you are going to do later, I want you to live in the moment.

Moments are very precious and faith can only work in the present moment.  I want you to treasure each moment I give you, and I want you to be sensitive to My Spirit as He leads you to say or do something in that moment that will glorify Me.

Take every moment as an opportunity to share My love and My words with others.

HEBREWS 11:1

DOING

So many in the age that you live are performance oriented.  They feel like they will be successful if they do what the world considers impressive and important        

I do not measure success in My kingdom by what you do.  I measure your success in My kingdom by who you are.  You are a joint heir with Me, and we co-labor in My Kingdom.  I am the One Who both gives you the will and the way to do My Father's will.

When I was on Earth, I only did those things that I saw My Father do.  Now I want you to allow Me to do through you what I know pleases My Father.  Allow Me to daily work through you and anoint you to accomplish moment by moment what My Father desires.  Delight yourself in Me and I will plant in your heart what My Father wants you to do.

PHILIPPIANS 2:13

LITTLE

I know that you have an expression, "Too little and too late."  This expression can never apply to what is happening in My kingdom on Earth.  I am always right on time.  When you understand My sovereignty, you will never fear what is going on in the world.

I know that right now you feel like the world is falling apart with all the wars and rumors of wars, the unusual weather, and the apathy of those who call Me by My name.  Rest assured that all is under control.  All that the prophets predicted will come to pass. 

I talked to My disciples about what they would face in the future.  Those conversations with them included also what will happen in the future of the age that you are in now.  The beginning of sorrows is about to conclude, and then I will return.  I told My disciples to look up when they saw the things I predicted happening because My redemption was drawing nigh.  That was 2,000 years ago, but a day is as a thousand years in My sight.  Stand ready always for My return.

MATTHEW 24; 2 PETER 3:8

CARES

I always want you to cast every care upon Me.  You are the sheep of My pasture, and I am your good shepherd.  Sheep are never bear burdens.  They are totally dependent upon their good shepherd to lead them to good grazing pasture land and water.

Often sheep will be cast down because of their heavy wool.  After a down pour of rain, their wool becomes extremely heavy.  When sheep are cast down they cannot right themselves.  A good shepherd will be on the alert to help those cast down sheep get up so that they can continue to be led.

Whenever there is a down pour of trials and tribulations in your life, you could easily become heavy hearted and cast down, but always remember that I am ever present with you to lift you up.  Whenever you feel heavy-hearted come to Me immediately and cast every care upon Me so that you can continue to follow close by Me.

RECLAIM

Much of the land I promised to Abraham has been given away to other nations.  Rest assured, however, that all the land I promised to Abraham will be reclaimed.  I am a covenant keeping God and those things that have been lost that I have promised will be restored and reclaimed.

When you know that I am a covenant keeping God, you will see how I can reclaim your losses.  What has been stolen from you by My enemy will be reclaimed. 

Rejoice today because you are not only a child of Abraham, but you also are a joint heir with Me.
I am in charge of your resources on Earth when you are faithful with your tithes and offerings.
You will see amazing miracles of My power to restore and reclaim in the days that lie ahead of you.
Receive these miracles today by faith and thank Me.

MOUNTAINS

As the mountains are around Jerusalem, so I am around you daily.  You are encompassed with a host of angels and My holy presence.  This is why you have nothing to fear.  I dwell on a holy mountain, and the day will come when you will see that place.  Until that time, rest assured that I will help you climb whatever mountain you may face daily.

There will always be mountains of trials in your life, but when those times come, I will either help you overcome the mountain or I will hold your hand while together we will tunnel through the mountain.

My righteousness is like great mountains.  The mountains skip like rams when they hear My voice.  Today meditate on My righteousness and listen carefully to My voice as My Spirit leads you moment by moment.  When you do this, the mountains in your life will become mole hills.

PSALM 125:2, 36:6, 87:1

TWO

I said that "If two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father Who is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in My name, there am I in the midst of them."  There is great power in agreement.  This is why I sent My disciples out two by two.

As My disciples went to share My good news, one would speak the good news of My kingdom while the other one would pray.  I want you to do the same.  Always have someone with you who can pray silently as you share My gospel with others.

Also when you do spiritual warfare, it is good to have another with you who will be in agreement as you bind and loose the spirits that My Spirit leads you to bind and loose.  The wars in the spiritual realm will increase daily until My return, so stand ready with a prayer partner to pray effectively against My enemy in these last days.

MATTHEW 18:18-20

ESCAPE

You live in a day when the labor pains of Earth are growing more intense.  It seems like the all Earth is in extreme pain.  Tumultuous times will increase just before I return.  When you see these things happening, look up because your redemption draws nigh.

Many of My beloved would like to escape these times and their hope is that they will be taken out of this world before things really intensify.  It does not matter to Me what your belief is about when I return.  I just want you to look forward to My return. I do not want you to have an escape attitude.  Instead, I want you to be a diligent laborer who seizes every opportunity to share My good news and My soon return with others.

Some of My beloved escape these times by feeding themselves the entertainment of the world.  It says in My Word that in the last days there will be lovers of pleasure more than lovers of Me and that the love of many will wax cold.  Today keep the fire of My Holy Spirit burning brightly within you by feeding on My Word and by spending quality time with Me.  Escape into My presence instead of escaping through worldly activities.

IDOLS

It is so easy for you in the age you live in to idolize people and things.  You live in a land that is immersed in materialism.  Things can easily become idols that take you away from My presence,  You also experience daily a bombardment of images that come to you through your television and computer.  Such images can fill your mind to over flow and prevent you from overflowing with thoughts of Me.

My main goal as the Children of Israel took their journey from bondage in Egypt to the "Promised Land" was to keep them from going into bondage again to idols.  Even after My constant warnings for them to destroy all the idolatrous nations and all the idolatrous things they were doing, they continued in idolatry.

Today make your goal in agreement with My goal to rid all idolatry by considering nothing in your life more precious than Me.   I am a jealous God, and I want you to put Me first daily.  I know that when you put Me first, you position yourself to receive blessing upon blessing from My Throne Room.

REFERENCE

You probably remember the times in the early days of your high school that you had to look up references in the library for term papers.  You actually had to write those references you hoped to use on your term paper on index cards.

My Word is abundant in references.  However, the author of My Word is My Spirit Who inspired many to speak My Word to others and finally to record those words on scrolls and letters.  When you read My Word, I want you to always look up the other references that compliment the verses that you are reading.  Most Bibles give you that ability to refer from the New Covenant Scriptures to the Old Covenant Scriptures.

It is important that you receive the full counsel of My Word, and the only way to do that is to look up the references.  You will see how this will help you as you study My Word.  Always remember to inquire of My Spirit if there is something you do not understand or if there is something more you need to refer to in My Scriptures.  It gives Me great joy when you study My Word.

2 TIMOTHY 2:15

DIFFERNCE

My enemy will often come to you and whisper these words, "What difference will it make if you do not obey God."  Do not listen to that voice.  There are many in the world who are not obeying Me, and even though it looks like they do not suffer the consequences of their disobedience, there will be serious consequences eventually.

My beloved David, the psalmist, was a little envious of the wicked at times.  However, I spoke to his heart and told him that I am a just God and that the day would come when I would deal with the wicked if they refuse to repent.

Whether or not you choose to obey Me or obey your flesh or My enemy when he tempts you does make a huge difference.  If you obey the voice of your flesh that wants you to give in to one of your lusts, you will become bound if you continually follow the way of your lusts instead of My way.  If you give in to My enemy's temptations, you will hurt yourself and others.  Going My way is the only way to live a blessed life. When you trust in Me and obey My voice, you will always be blessed.

PSALM 1
