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.

EVERLASTING FATHER

Isaiah the prophet knew exactly who I am.  He knew that as the Father's son, I am also One with My Father.  I understand that many Jewish and Muslim people think that My believers worship three Gods (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).  I shared many times in My talks with My disciples that I and the Father are One.

I am God in the flesh.  I am not just another prophet for Muslims to add to their list.  I am not just a good teacher.  I am the "GREAT I AM," Who put on an earth suit and came to live among those Who I created. I am the everlasting Father.

In the beginning, I was with God and I was God. I am a flesh being Who came to show those on Earth who the Father is. When I left Earth, I received a glorified body. When you are resurrected from the dead, you will also receive your glorified body just as I did. Look forward to that day.

ISAIAH 9:6; JOHN 7:39, 20:13

COUNSELOR

My name is Counselor.  Solomon wrote that in a multitude of counselors there is safety.  Godly counsel sometimes is difficult to find in the age that you live.

It is important that you choose a counselor who knows My Word and Who is anointed by My Spirit.
The anointing that was upon Me when I walked on Earth included the Spirit of Counsel and Might.

People who are weak in certain areas of their lives can find strength to overcome those weaknesses when they receive Godly counsel. The anointing that was upon Me is available to all of My beloved who desire to walk in that anointing.  Today ask Me for a fresh anointing, and you may have the opportunity to be a Godly counselor to someone in need.

PROVERBS 11:14; ISAIAH 11:1-2

WONDERFUL

One of My names is "Wonderful."  Why did Isaiah the prophet call Me by the name "Wonderful?"  Whenever you lack for words to praise someone, you often say, "You are so wonderful."  This was in the heart of Isaiah when he prophesied that My name would be "Wonderful."

The Psalmist said that I made My wonderful works to be remembered.  My name is "Wonderful" because I allowed My Father to do wonderful works through Me when I walked on Earth.  Read the Gospels this coming year and make a list of all the wonderful works I did.

I only said what I heard My Father say.  I only did what I saw My Father do.  This is how I want you to live in this coming year.  Listen carefully to My Holy Spirit before you say anything and then allow My Holy Spirit to do My wondrous works through you as you yield to My Spirit within you.

ISAIAH 9:6; PSALM 111:4

OWE

This is truly the season of giving. It is also the season for forgiving.   Forgiving occurs when we lay down our expectations of  others.

Expectations are usually based on what we want another person to do or say, and when that person fails to meet our expectations, we are disappointed and sometimes even discouraged.

When I offered Myself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world, I forgave past, present, and future sins and expected nothing in return.  To forgive means giving love to another without expecting anything in return.  The new commandment I gave to My disciples was for them to love one another as I had loved them.  Expect nothing of others and everything of Me.

JOHN 13:34

MIGHTY GOD

Seven hundred years before I was born on Earth, Isaiah looked through the portals of time and prophesied My birth.  He gave me several names, and all of those names described who I am; Who I was; what I would do; and where I would go.

The name that told all of mankind Who I am is "Mighty God." I am the great "I AM" Who came to live among you as a flesh and blood man.  This plan of redemption was written before the Earth was formed.

I had to put on an Earth suit and become just like you because I wanted to reveal who My Father is, and also I wanted to identify with you.  I was touched with every feeling you have ever experienced, except I was sinless.  When I take your burdens to My Father as I pray for you, He always asks Me how you are feeling.  I then can tell Him about every ache and pain and heartbreak you may have on any given day.

ISAIAH 9:6; HEBREWS 4:15

BELLS

Bells ring out on church towers to announce My birth on Christmas morning.  Bell choirs play in harmony during church services,

Bells are so important to My heavenly Father that they were placed on the hems of the priestly garments.  Those bells tinkled as the priests performed their duties in the Temple. 

The sound of the bells on the staffs of the shepherds were silenced on that still, quiet night when all glory came down from heaven and angels announced My birth, The shepherds stood as still as statues as they watched that bright light hide the stars that were shining that night,  When you hear the bells ring out this Christmas, remember that special night and stand in awe of My presence with you

EXODUS 39:26; LUKE 2

BELLS

The sound of bells usher in the Christmas season, Church bells ring out on Christmas morning, and in the north sleigh bells can be heard on the snowy hillsides, There are bell choirs that ring out the notes to Christmas hymns in churches during this season.

Shepherds have bells on their staffs to direct their sheep. When you hear bells this Christmas, think about that still, quiet night when the shepherd's bells were silenced by the loud chorus of angels who announced My birth,

Bells also ring out loudly as the saints join with one voice in heaven to praise Me.  Heavenly bells will ring out to announce your entrance into heaven. Look forward to that day.

 ZECHARIAH 14:20;

SHINE

Most Christmas trees during this season are covered with shining ornaments and lights with a shining star at the very top of the tree. The stars were brightly shining on the night the angels announced My birth,

When I appeared at the mount of transfiguration, My face shined as the sun. After I ascended into heaven, I received the glory that I left to come and dwell among mankind.  Ever since My ascension, My manifest presence is cloaked in shining light.

I have called you and all My beloved to manifest My presence on Earth.  Your faces should shine so brightly that others will ask you why your faces shine. Take time in My presence every morning and allow Me to dress you with My garments of praise and clothe you with My shining light.

MATTHEW 5:16,13:43; PHILIPPIANS 2:15

PRESENT

The greatest present that you can give Me this Christmas is yourself.  I love to hear your praise, thanksgiving and worship, but the highest form of worship is doing My will.

When you give yourself to Me daily, then I can fulfill My will through you.  The two commandments I can fulfill through you are to love one another as I have loved you and to love Me with all of your heart.

These two commandments are impossible for you to fulfill if you do not yield to My Spirit within you.  I am looking forward to receiving the gift of yourself to Me during this season and every season of your life.

JOHN 15:12, 14:21

LIGHT

It is appropriate that bright lights are used to decorate homes during this season when My birth is celebrated.  I am the light of the world.  Doctors who observe the conception process in a test tube cannot identify the flash of light that occurs when sperm meets egg. I am that light.

I am present at every birth,  I am the light Who lights every person born into the world, This is why it is also appropriate to light candles on birthday cakes
,
This Christmas season when you switch on your tree lights and house lights, remember how My birth brought eternal light into the world,  Pray for those who have chosen to walk in darkness to have the eyes of their understanding opened to behold Me, the only One Who can light their path that leads to salvation,

JOHN 1:9

Sunday, December 16, 2018

SILENCE

I have heard two expressions about silence.  Some people say on a still.,quiet night that the silence is deadening.  Others who want to get away from noise say that silence is golden,

It was a silent night when suddenly the silence in the shepherd's fields was interrupted by a great host of angels who came to announce My birth.  My glory filled the heavens that night,

My glory will fill you during this season if you will take time to be silent during your times with Me,  I always have things that I want to tell you, but you must remain silent long enough to hear My still, quiet voice.  When you take that time, silence will always be golden,

LUKE 2:8-20

CELEBRATION

There are so many celebrations in a lifetime. Birthdays, graduations, weddings, are just a few of the celebrations that people enjoy,  I did my first miracle when My family went to Cana to celebrate a marriage, 

This is the season when people are celebrating My birth,  I actually was born in early spring during the time when the shepherds were in the fields to assist in the birth of baby lambs. It was fitting that I would be born then since I am the " Lamb of God" Who takes away the sins of the world,

I have given you the gift of life. I want you to unwrap this gift daily so that My glory will be displayed in your life, Glory is My manifest presence shining through earthen vessels like you, Let My light shine brightly through you during this season of celebration.

LUKE 2;8; JOHN 2:11

CONSOLE

It is sometimes difficult to know how to console people when they suffer loss,  The disciples could not understand why I did not rush to Lazarus' bedside when he was sick,  I knew that God had an appointed time for Me to see Lazarus.

God also has an appointed time for you to console people.  It is important that you seek Me for the right timing to visit someone who needs consolation.  Only I know how receptive a person will be to your visit,

Be led by My Spirit instead of your emotions when you receive news that someone you know has suffered loss.  Also pray for Me to speak the words of comfort through you to the one who needs comfort.  Remember that My Holy Spirit is called "The Comforter,"

JOHN 11:1-5,14:16

IDEAS

I am all wisdom and I am able to give you creative ideas.  Solomon wrote this about Me: "I wisdom dwell with prudence and find out knowledge of witty inventions."  I am the creator of all things, and I am able to infuse your mind with My creativity.

Most of the inventions in your age were inspired by Me.  You now live in the age of knowledge when new inventions are being created at such a rate that many inventions that were patented even six months ago are obsolete now.

There is always something new to learn.  However, I want you to learn two things from Me that no other teacher can teach you.  I want you to learn meekness and lowliness of heart.  In order to learn this, you must spend time in My presence.  When you learn meekness and lowliness of heart, you will experience My abundant grace in your life.

PROVERBS 8:12; MATTHEW 11:28-29

Sunday, December 9, 2018

LOGIC

My coming to earth as a babe defies all logic.  However, it was the wisdom of My Father that planned the way I was to become flesh.  In order for you to identify with Me, I had to be born as a babe and develop into a man.

During My lifetime on Earth, I was touched by every weakness that you experience, but I did not have the weakness of worldly lusts. I was without sin.  On that fateful day when I died on the tree, I became sin for you, even though I never experienced sin.

My death also seems to defy logic, but sin had to be judged. This is why I bore in My body of flesh every sin that mankind ever committed.  My fleshly birth on Earth paved the way for Me to become the perfect sacrifice for sin.

HEBREWS 4:15; ISAIAH 53:5

Friday, December 7, 2018

WILLING

When My servant Moses was preparing the tabernacle, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, brought the Lord's offering to this work of the tabernacle. It is My Father Who stirs hearts to give.

During this season of giving, My prayer for you is that you will receive the same giving heart that My Father has.  He so loved the world that He gave Me, His only begotten Son, to be the perfect sin sacrifice for the whole world.

I gave myself willingly to die for your sins and not only for your sins, but also for the sins of the whole world. Sadly even at this giving season, few remember what I gave on the day I was crucified or on the day that I was raised from the dead.  May your heart be stirred during this season to willingly give of yourself to lovingly serve Me and others.

EXODUS 35:21; JOHN 3:16

PERISH

Most everyone wants to know the end of a story.  In fact, many read the last chapter in a book to see how it ends. If the book has a happy ending, then they will read it.

You have the opportunity daily to read My Word, and My Word does tell you what will happen in the last days.  My friend Peter wrote about how the earth will be burned and then there will be a new heaven and a new earth.

I do not want any perish in the world, and this is why it is so important for you to share My gospel with others as the time draws near to the end of time.  I know you want all those you meet to have the everlasting life that I have promised all who will believe in Me.

2 PETER 3:1-9; JOHN 3:16

ANALYSIS

It is the nature of people to analyze situations that have caused broken relationships.  Often people who have been hurt in relationships will feel guilty because they think they did something wrong to cause a tense relationship.

There is a place is life where analysis of information is vital such as planning budgets and making business decisions.  However, analysis of human relationships is not productive because only I am able to tell what is in the hearts of others.

I want to challenge you today.  Instead of analyzing what you did wrong to cause a rift in a relationship, release the hearts of those involved to Me.  Try not to be burdened down with thoughts of justifying yourself or making excuses.  Only I can fight the spiritual battles needed to mend broken hearts. Put the breastplate of righteousness on you daily and this will protect you from further wounding. You put on the breastplate of righteousness by declaring that your righteousness is of Me.

ISAIAH 54:17; EPHESIANS 6:14

HELP!!

The cry for help is universal.  The sad news is that many do not know where to go for help.  Our help comes from the Lord and His Word.  If we go anywhere else for help, the help we will receive is only temporary.

I knew that My disciples would feel abandoned by Me when I left them.  They lacked direction because I had been their leader for over three years while I walked on Earth. 

When I told them that I would not leave them as orphans, but that I would send them a "Helper," they did not understand what I meant.  However, when My Spirit was poured out upon them as they gathered in that upper room, they were immersed in My power.  You have that same power.  Tap into My power to help you today and everyday.

PSALM 28:7

UNIQUE

I never was a parent, but I know what family life is all about.  I was born into the family on earth  that  My Father arranged for Me.

Even before that time, I was in a family.  From the beginning, I was with My Father and I was His Son.  Holy Spirit was also from the beginning.  Holy Spirit has all the attributes of a mother.  He comforts, teaches, and nurtures.  My family in heaven is definitely unique.

Parents often show favoritism towards one child in the family. When this happens, jealousy and rejection can develop.  To avoid favoritism in families, I challenge parents today to love their children with My love.  My love appreciates the uniqueness in each person.  Meditate today on the fact that I am no respecter of persons. I want you to display that same characteristic to all you may meet today. Love others with My love.

ACTS 10:34

REVERSE

Sometimes when relationships do not work out, you wish you could reverse your past with such people and start all over again.  New beginnings are wonderful, and I have given you a way to heal relationships.

I have given all those who believe in Me the ministry of reconciliation.  You are called to forgive even as I have forgiven you.  That forgiveness is total forgiveness which means I remember your sins no more  Everyday can be a new beginning for you.

Your relationship with Me is one relationship that will never have to be reversed because I do not even remember what caused our relationship to be strained.  Today is a new day.  The past is past, and you have an opportunity to draw closer to Me than ever.

2 CORINTHISANS 5:18

Friday, November 23, 2018

INTRODUCE

When you meet someone new, you usually introduce yourself to that person, and then that person responds with their personal introduction.  The usual questions follow such as, "Where do you live? What do you do for a living?"

I need no introduction to you.  In fact, all that you need to know about Me is written in My Word.
You also do not need to introduce yourself to Me because I even know how many hairs you have on your head.

One of the greatest joys you have in this life is getting to know Me more intimately day by day.  As you read My Word, ask My Holy Spirit to reveal to you something new about Me. My Spirit came to bring to your remembrance everything that I said and did while I walked on Earth.

MATTHEW 10:30; JOHN 14:26

Saturday, November 17, 2018

RETAINING

I had hoped that all the teachings I gave to My disciples would be retained in their memory.  However, that was not the case.  It was not until My Holy Spirit was breathed into them that they began to understand that it was My Father's will to gift Me to the world as a sacrifice for the sins of the whole world.

After the Holy Spirit came upon them in power, they then were able to have that special anointing that enabled them to not only retain My teachings, but also to share and write about those teachings.

The Holy Spirit was given to bring all things to the remembrance that I had taught them through the little over three years that I walked on Earth.  Today, ask My Holy Spirit to help you retain what you learn from My Word as you read it daily.

JOHN 14:26


Friday, November 16, 2018

FLEE

There are several verses in My Word that mention the word, "flee."  Paul warned Timothy to flee youthful lusts.  Seducing spirits are on the prowl to capture the young generation, but he will have no success if young people will refuse to open the door when Satan knocks on door of the three lusts that all mankind have.

Those three lusts are the lust of the flesh (seeking to satisfy our five senses in an addictive way); the lust of the eyes (the imaginations and longings in our minds); and the lust of the pride of life (putting our trust in ourselves and the world system more than we put our trust in God).

There is a promise of God that includes this word, "flee." Isaiah prophesied that the redeemed of the Lord will return to Zion with songs of joy and gladness, and sorrow and mourning will flee away. Today sing to the Lord all the day long, and you will be protected against the plan of the enemy to take advantage of your lusts and still your joy.

2 TIMOTHY 2:22; ISAIAH 35:10

DIFFERENCE

I have heard the expression, "What difference does it make?"  People usually say this when they do not understand that everything in this life does make a difference.

What you do and say in this life can make a difference in your family relationships, your church relationships, your work relationships, and even strangers you may meet today.  Most of all what you do and say daily can make a huge difference in My kingdom on earth.

When you accepted Me as your Lord and Savior, I made an eternal difference in your life.  On the day you were born of My Spirit, you entered My kingdom that is filled with My righteousness, My peace, and My joy.  Now I challenge you today to make a difference in many lives by sharing with them what a difference I have made in your life.

ROMANS 14:17

Friday, November 9, 2018

TRAVEL

When you are about to travel to a place, you need to know your destination, and you also need to make all the needed preparations for your trip.

You can praise Me today because you do know where your final destination will be. It is beyond your natural mind to envision your travel to heaven, but rest assured you will safely be escorted by My angels to be with Me for all eternity.

Today I want you to set your affections on the things that are above, instead of focusing on the things of this earth.  Although, I do not want you to be so  heavenly minded that you are no earthly good.
The  preparation for your final journey is simple.  Abide in Me. Abide in My Word, and abide in My love.  When you do those three things daily, I will greet you at your final destination with, "Well done, My good and faithful servant."

COLOSSIANS 3:2; JOHN 15

Thursday, November 8, 2018

VISIONS

My Word says that old men will dream dreams and that young men will see visions.  My Word also says that without a vision, people perish.

I want you always to have a vision.  Ask Me to give you a faith vision for yourself.  A faith vision will help you see what I want you to accomplish in My kingdom in the future.  Faith is the evidence of things not seen.  You cannot predict your future, but your days are all written in your Book of Life.

When you ask Me to give you a faith vision, I am then able to give you the steps of faith that you need to take to fulfill the works that I have designed for you to do on Earth.  Write down the vision I give you and make it clear.  You will then see that vision unfold before your eyes.

JOEL 2:28; PROVERBS 29:18; HABAKUK 2:2; JOEL 2:28

TREMBLE

There are many things in your life that can cause you to tremble.  Fear sometimes causes you to tremble.  A bad report about the loss of your health or a job can cause you to tremble.

There is something, however, that is eternal that can cause you to tremble.  My Word is eternal, and if you are not walking in My light, it is designed to make you tremble so much that you will repent of whatever darkness you allowed to rob you from being a shining light for Me on this Earth.

The children of Israel trembled at My commandments because they realized how they willingly disobeyed My commandments. The psalmist David wrote: "My flesh trembles for fear of You, and I am afraid of Your judgments." Pray for those you know today who need to repent of walking in their flesh instead of walking in My Spirit. Also examine your own heart.

PSALM 119:120

Monday, November 5, 2018

APPROVAL

People usually seek the approval of others, and this is why they seek to please others.




People who seek the approval of others often fall into the pattern of being "people pleasers."  Whenever you seek to please others just to gain their approval, you are in pride.  Pride is always self-seeking.

I want you to seek to please Me, but never seek to please Me to gain My approval.  I already approve of you.  I see you perfect and complete in Me.  I gave My life to purchase you both eternal forgiveness and eternal approval.

If you want to please Me, allow My presence within you to be demonstrated to others by acts of faith. Without faith, it is impossible to please Me. Have complete faith in Me, and recognize that without Me you can do nothing.  In Me you live and move and have your being.

HEBREWS 11:6; JOHN 15:5; ACTS 17:28






















Sunday, November 4, 2018

MEMORY

When a beloved one dies, you want to keep that person's memory alive.  My Holy Spirit can help you with that desire because He was able to bring everything that I said to the remembrance of My disciples.  

As you think about the good things you experienced with that beloved one, ask My Holy Spirit to send you a picture of the exact scene you are trying to remember and the specific conversations that took place in that scene..

My Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth Who is able to bring truths from My Word to your remembrance.  You can rest assured if your beloved one was made righteous through My shed blood because that one had faith in Me, the memory of that righteous person becomes an everlasting remembrance to  all those who knew that person.

JOHN 14:26; PSALM 112:6

Friday, November 2, 2018

CONTRITE

I am attracted to those who have contrite hearts.  People with contrite hearts recognize their weaknesses, and they are willing to humble themselves by asking for My help to strengthen them.

I came to heal broken hearts and to liberate those who are bound.  Your prayers for others have an impact in My throne room.  As you lift up those you know who have not even cried out for My help, I hear those prayers and I answer.

Often people who need help do not know where to go for help.  They busy themselves to try to forget that something is missing in their lives, and they do not admit to others that they need help.  When you pray for a person who does not yet have a contrite heart, your prayers will open the door for Me to speak to them and help them.  Sometimes people are too proud to ask for help.

PSALM 34:18; ISAIAH 61:1

Thursday, November 1, 2018

CONVEY

s
Sometimes it is hard to convey to others what is in your heart.  Words often are insufficient to describe the fulness of joy that I can supply hearts.

Even during grieving times, I am able to fill your heart with My joy that will strengthen you through lengthy or horrific trials.

The way to stay filled with My joy is very simple.  Spend time in My presence.  In My presence is fulness of joy and at My right hand are pleasures forever more.  Today and every day spend time with Me before you leave for work or school.  You will be surprised at the strength you will have throughout the day.

PSALM 16:11; NEHEMIAH 8:10

STORMS

When I went fishing with My disciples, the skies were blue and the Sea of Galilee was calm. There were times, however, when the winds roared over the Golan Heights.  Suddenly we found ourselves in angry waters.

It was such an occasion when the disciples found me sleeping during the storm.  They were so afraid. I woke up and simply exclaimed, "Peace be still," and the waters became calm once again.

When the storm clouds in your life are brewing, I want you to remember that My strength is in the clouds.  I am in the midst of every storm you may experience in a lifetime. My strength is sufficient to give you peace. so you will not be submerged by the waves of adversity.

LUKE 8:23; PSALM 68:34

Tuesday, October 23, 2018

TRY

There are four words I want to give you this morning.  They are: "try, trial, truth, and trust." All four of these words begin with "TR."  I am "THE REDEEMER." When you meditate on the fact that I am THE REDEEMER, the four words I gave you will help you through every trial.

I know that when you go through horrific TRIALS that you TRY your best to have faith in Me.  TRIALS will never help you to grow in faith no matter how hard you TRY.  Only as you rely on Me, YOUR REEDEMER, will you be able to be an overcomer in every TRIAL.  It is My faith within you that helps you to overcome the world with all of its TRIALS and tribulations.

My faith within you will only grow as you remain in My TRUTH.  Faith comes by hearing My Word.
Today as you face certain trials, put your TRUST in My Word which is full of My promises to you.
I am THE REDEEMER, and when you put your TRUST in Me, you will be an overcomer.

PSALM 78:35; ROMANS 10:17; 1 JOHN 5:4

VOICE

So many want to learn to hear My voice.  They forget that I love to hear their voice.  I rejoice every morning when you take time to just say "Good morning" to Me.

The promise in My Word is that all My sheep hear and know My voice.  Then you may ask, "Why do so many of My beloved have a hard time hearing My voice?"  The answer is simple.  They are easily distracted.  Their minds are filled with the worries and cares of this world.

Tomorrow morning and every morning, I do not want you to leave your house without taking time to hear My voice. Quiet your soul as My servant David did.  He heard Me sing to him, and then he wrote songs to Me as he watched the sheep.  He wrote, "I stilled My soul like a weaned child."  A weaned child does not have to cry to get his mother's attention because he trusts that she will feed him solid food.  I want to feed you with solid food ((My Word) every morning, and I want to sing songs to you also. Hearken to My voice.  The word "hearken" means to "listen, listening."

JOHN 10:14,16: PSALM 131:2

Sunday, October 21, 2018

CONTROL

It seems like the whole world is out of control.  The severe storms, the crimes, the wars, earthquakes, and the infighting in politics are all manifestations of what I called the beginning of sorrows..

The whole earth is groaning like a woman in labor.  Her labor always is more intense just before birth.  Never forget that I have everything under My control.  Even the principalities, rulers of darkness, and wickedness in the spiritual realm are under My control.

Take comfort today that I also have the events of your life under My control.  However, you still have a will that sometimes does not cooperate with My plans for you which are always good. Release your day and yourself to Me today, and then My Spirit will be able to comfort you, guide you, and lead you throughout the day.  He will tell you the next thing to do.

MARK 1:8; JOHN 14:16 AND 26

Friday, October 19, 2018

PLEASANT

My desire for you is that you are pleasant whenever you speak to someone either by phone or in person.  My servant Paul exhorted believers to allow no corrupt word to proceed out of their mouths.  He challenged believers to season their conversations with grace so that the listener would be edified.

I want you always to impart grace to those with whom you converse.  Words are containers that can hold either bitter or sweet waters.  A prayer I want you to pray daily is: "Holy Spirit help me to order my conversations aright."

My promise is that  when you praise Me and order your conversations aright, you will glorify Me and you will experience daily the benefits of My salvation.  Those benefits include forgiveness, healing, and deliverance.

EPHESIANS 4:29; PSALM 50:23




Thursday, October 18, 2018

FORGET/FORGIVE

I gave you these two words today because those two words describe My character.  When I walked on Earth, I was not forgetful, but it was My goal to both forget about those who said all manner of evil against Me falsely and to forgive them.

I never reviewed the wrongs others did to Me.  Reviewing wrongs keeps you in prison to an unforgiving spirit.  I exhorted others to bless those who curse you, and to do good to those who hate you, and to pray for those who spitefully use you.

Do not go to bed with anger in your heart towards those who have wronged you. Release those who have wronged you to My judgment, and know with assurance that I will do battle for you against those spirits that control your abusers.

MATTHEW 5:44

Many believers believe that these are the last days before My return.  Only My Father knows when I will return.

My disciples also believed that My return was immanent. The expectancy of My soon return gave them an unction from the Holy Spirit and an urgency in their hearts to spread My gospel quickly.
You do not know when you will take your last breath.  However, you do know Me and love Me.
There are multitudes who do not know Me.

Ask My Holy Spirit to give you the same unction, anointing, and urgency that My disciples had to take every opportunity to spread My gospel.  Ask for divine appointments to share My gospel with others today and every day because it may be your last day or the last day for someone to hear My truths.

1 THESSALONIANS 5:2-4

LISTEN

After I presented a parable, I often said, "He who has ears, let him hear." Of course, most everyone who listened to My parables had two physical ears.  However, many did not understand My parables.  I even had to explain those parables to My disciples. 

Everyone born has 2 sets of ears (physical and spiritual).  However, the spiritual ears of people are closed until they are born again.  Your rebirth ushers in a new way of hearing what My Holy Spirit is speaking to you.

Today, I want you to hear My voice with your spiritual ears.  I have given you My Holy Spirit to help lead and guide you in My truths and also to reveal the steps of faith I want you to take.  During this day, I want you to ask My Spirit to tell you the next thing to do.  Then wait to hear the still, quiet voice of My Holy Spirit as He instructs you throughout the day.

MATTHEW 11:15; JOHN 16:13

SELECT

I know you would love to select the day of your departure from this earth.  If you knew that day, you could give a blessing and goodbyes to all your loved ones. I know your days.  Everyone on earth will have an appointment with death.

I have heard you pray for those who are ill this prayer: "Lord, I pray that they will make that last appointment on time, (not a day late or a day early)."  I am able to prepare your heart for that day and often I even will speak to your heart the exact day, but this requires a listening heart.

You have a day to be born and a day to die.  All this is written in your Book of Life.  Until your special appointment arrives, I want you to enjoy every day, and spend quality time in My presence because in My presence is fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore.

PSALM 139, 16:11

Tuesday, October 2, 2018

PASS

When some of My beloved go through trials that seem unending, they ask Me, "Lord, when will this ever pass?" I also have heard people tell others that their favorite phrase in the Bible is "It came to pass."

Trials, situations, circumstances, and experiences in life do pass, but My love for you is eternal and will never pass away.

The day will come when you will pass away and many of your loved ones also will pass away.  When My beloved pass away, they will pass My way, and will instantly fall into My everlasting arms of love.  I am the way, the truth and the life. When your time comes, you will pass My way.  I will never pass you by.

JOHN 14:6

AROUND

You have probably heard the expression,  "What goes around comes around." Sometimes we may feel like we are going around and around the mountain of difficulties that face us. However, we have to remember what the Word of God says about the mountains. 

"Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting, You are God(Psalm 90:2)."

No matter what difficulties we may face, God is God, and He is in control. We can speak grace to whatever mountain we face with the full assurance that we serve a God Who is full of grace.
God gives grace to the humble and grace is God's supernatural ability to do what is impossible in the natural. My Father sent Me to enable you to have grace to overcome every difficulty.

PSALM 90:2; JOHN 1:16

CHANGES

Changes happen quickly in life.  We may be moving to Alabama, so it may be a little season before I can get back to writing my blogs.  Until that time I hope you can review some of my former blogs.

One thing we can depend upon, however, is that God is unchanging.  His love for us is unchanging. I pray that you may have a fruitful season in God's kingdom in the season ahead.

Please pray for Tom and me with these changes and that God good plan will go forward for Tom's health.  Thanks so much for being faithful followers of My blog.  We know that all of God's plans are for good, not for evil, to give us a purpose and a hope and an expected end.

JEREIMIAH 29:11

PREPARE

Sometimes it is difficult to prepare for the future since you do not know what the future holds.  Take comfort today.  Even though you do not know what the future holds, you do know Me, and I hold your future in My hands.

Your part in walking in the Spirit daily is just to hear My voice and do the next thing.  Each minute of your life is a gift because without Me you could not even breathe.

Remain in thanksgiving today and allow My Spirit to lead and guide you not only in My Word but also in the next thing to do.  At the end of the day you will see how My Spirit did put you in the right place at the right time.  Preparation for the future simply means giving Me your day.  Commit your way to Me and I will bring to pass My will in your life.

PSALM 37:5

Tuesday, August 7, 2018

SONGS

Some believers have difficulty staying filled with My Spirit.  The goal daily is to submit yourself, (body, soul, and spirit) to Me.  When you do this, My Spirit will help you to constantly know My presence with you and to receive a fresh anointing.

Paul made it clear how to stay filled with the Spirit.  He wrote: "Be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess, but be filled with the Spirit: Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord: Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God (Ephesians 5:18-21)."

Sing all kinds of songs to Me and pray in the Spirit today. Take time today to hear Me sing love songs to you.  When you do this, you will stay filled with My Spirit.

EPHESIANS 5:18-21


Sunday, August 5, 2018

END

Sometimes when you are going through a long trial, you ask Me the question, "Will this ever end?"  You can discover the answer to this question in My Word.

Do you know that My thoughts for you are good, not for evil.  My thoughts are to give you both a purpose, a peace, and an expected end during your trial.  Know that I am in control of time.  You are not.  There is no time or space in eternity, so the important thing to know is that I am with you every minute of every trial.

My plans for My beloved are always good.  Rest assured that I do accomplish My purposes in you and in others whenever you experience a trial.  My goal in every trial is for you to draw closer to Me than ever before.  Keep close to Me, and experience the joy that only I can give you in spite of the length of your trial.

JEREMIAH 29:11


Friday, August 3, 2018

SURPRISE

Surprises can be fun, but sometimes you are not prepared for surprises.  When this happens, I want you to ask My Holy Spirit to help you accept the surprises (good or bad) with grace.

You can accept every surprise with grace when you daily remain in thanksgiving.  My grace abounds to you with thanksgiving, and My grace is always sufficient to get you through unprepared surprises.

I want to encourage you today and everyday to give thanks not only for everything, but in everything.  This way, you will always be prepared for any surprise that may come your way.  Keep in mind also, that nothing ever takes Me by surprise.

1 THESSALONIANS 5:18; EPHESIANS 5:20

ESTABLISHED

When you look at the word, "established," the word, "stable," is almost completed in this word.  Stability in the age you live is hard to establish.

There is one way that you can feel secure and stable in a world that is falling apart.  That way is to establish yourself in My Word.  My Word is eternal, and all things on Earth are held together by My Word.

You will not fall apart when you see the turmoil this world is experiencing now because your heart is fixed (established) on My Word.  The psalmist David wrote: The righteous man "shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.  His heart is established, he shall not be afraid....(Psalm 112:7-8)

PSALM 112:7-8

Friday, July 27, 2018

CONCENTRATE

There are so many distractions in the day that I know you find it hard to concentrate.  This is why it is important to spend just a few moments with Me in the morning before you start your day.  It was My practice to get up well before dawn to meet in prayer with My heavenly Father.

This might be asking to much of you, but just fifteen minutes spent in quiet with Me after you get out of bed will enable you to face the day with joy.

In My presence is fulness of joy and pleasures for evermore.  Once you focus on Me and commune with Me for just a short time in the morning then your thoughts will center more on Me throughout the day.  I so look forward to these quiet times with you when no one can distract you from hearing My voice.

PSALM 16:11

Thursday, July 19, 2018

APPOINTMENTS

Most people have appointments that they have to keep.  There is one appointment that everyone will keep.  There is an appointed time to die.  Your days are written in My Book of Life.  It is appointed to man once to die and after that the judgment.

As you pray for your loved ones, I want you to pray that they will make that appointment to see Me face to face on time - not a day early or a day late.  Pray that you and your loved ones will finish the works that I have for them to complete.

The works for you and all who believe in Me were written before the foundation of the Earth.  Ask Me today to reveal the works for you this day.  Pray that you will not miss any divine appointments.

HEBREWS 9:27; EPHESIANS 2:10

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

SURROUND

You are never alone.  I promised to never leave you or forsake you.  I am with you.  My Holy Spirit lives within you, and My holy angels are all around you.

My angels camp around those who love Me and who fear My name.  When you leave your home to go out into the world, be aware that My loving arms are surrounding you, and that I can commission My angels at any time to come to your aid.

It brings Me great joy when you recognize My never changing, everlasting presence with you and also the presence of My spiritual army surrounding you.  There is no need for you to ever be afraid.

PSALM 34:7

Monday, July 16, 2018

WILLING

Are you willing?  That is the question I ask you today.  Are you willing to accept My will as written in My Word.  If you are willing to do this, then I am able to fulfill My Word in your life.

All you have to do is to depend completely on Me to do My Father's will through you.  However, you must know what his will is.

To discover the will of My Father, simply read the gospels in your Bible and watch what I did while I was on Earth and what I also said.  I came to reveal the will of My Father.  Study My gospels and learn.  You will never be the same.

1 JOHN 1:1-3

Saturday, July 14, 2018

WEAK

There will be times when you feel emotionally and/or physically weak.  During those times, I want you to turn to Me because I am the strength of your life.

Strength will flow through you as you meditate on these words, "My joy is your strength."  Sometimes your joy well will seem to be dry, and it is at those times that you need to draw deep from the wells of joy that I have placed within you.

During those times you can also sing, "Spring up oh well within Me."  Refresh yourself by praying in the Spirit and meditating on My Word.  Remember that when I walked on Earth, I was touched with every feeling of your infirmities (weaknesses), and I stand ready to minister to you.

NEHEMIAH 8:10; HEBREWS 4:15; NUMBERS 21:17

MOUNTAIN

I said if you have the faith as a grain of mustard seed, you can say to the mountain remove to another place and it will remove,  I know that there have been many mountains in your life that you wished had been removed.

Often you feel like you are just going around and around the same old mountain when you confront similar trials.  When this happens I want you to speak to the mountain of trials with faith.  I want you to speak grace to every trial you experience no matter how high that mountain seems.

Grace is the supernatural ability to do what is impossible in the natural.  Right now while you are experiencing a trial that seems endless, I want you to speak grace to that mountain and it will finally be removed.  In the mean time I will give you all the grace you will need to tunnel through every mountainous trial.

MATTHEW 17:20

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

REALITY

I have heard the expression, "You just have to face reality!"  When I hear this statement, I desire for that person to face Me because I am the ultimate reality.  The definition of reality is the quality of being true to life.

I am life.  I am also truth. Few people comprehend the true fact that without Me they can do nothing.  They cannot even take their next breath.  

The next time you hear someone say, "You just have to face reality!"pray for that person to face Me.  Whatever situation they are facing can be faced with confidence and strength if they will turn to Me by giving every care to Me in prayer.  My presence then will give them joy and pleasures forevermore.  Now that is reality.

PSALM 16:11

Friday, July 6, 2018

CAREFUL

I have heard this saying, "Be careful!"  Some people give this exhortation to their loved ones when they leave their home to go to work or to school.  They say, "Be careful out there!"

You do live in a world that is full of danger and evil.  However, I want you to hide this truth in your heart as you make your exit from the safety of your home out into the world.  "I have overcome the world."

I have promised to be with you always.  You never have to fear being in this world where there is much tribulation.  There are five reasons that you do not have to fear.  I give you these five reasons today: "Fear not, for I am with you.  I am your God.  I will strengthen you.  I will help you, and I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness."  Remember these five truths as you exit your home into the work place, school, or market place today.

ISAIAH 41:10

Tuesday, July 3, 2018

REGARD

Daily as you read My Word, I want you to regard it with respect and awe.  I regard My Word even higher than My name.  You may ask why.

The reason I regard My Word higher than My name is because I am the Word of God in the flesh.  It is My Word that reveals this true fact to you.  Many in your age have been deceived.  They think I was just a good teacher or a prophet.

The truth is that I am life.  I am truth.  I am God in the flesh.  Study My Word today and see how those truths contained in My Word will set you free if you regard them with awe and apply those truths to your life.

JOHN 8:32

Monday, July 2, 2018

GENEROUS

I desire for you to be not only a cheerful giver, but also a generous giver.  I am an abundant God.  It is My joy to give you life and to give you life more abundantly.

I desire for you to be generous not only with your monies, but also with your time and your gifts.  There are vast numbers of people who stand ready to receive your prayers, My love, peace, and joy that I give generously to you daily.

Today, offer yourself fully to Me to be used by Me to anoint you with a generosity that will amaze you.  When My generosity flows through you, many, many, many will be touched and will draw closer to Me.

2 CORINTHIANS 9:7;JOHN 10:10

Sunday, July 1, 2018

ASK

You have not because you ask not.  Look at this word, "ASK."  Each letter in this word, "ASK" could be used as an acrostic that will reveal exactly how to receive anything from Me.

Ask and you will receive WISDOM.
Seek and you will find DISCERNMENT.
Knock and the door will be opened to you for DIRECTION.

These are the three exhortations that will place you in a position to receive everything you need in order to be guided by My Holy Spirit every day.  ASK AND KEEP ASKING.

JAMES 1:5-6; MATTHEW 7:8


Saturday, June 30, 2018

REFINE

The refining process often is not pleasant, especially the refining process of your spiritual life.  You are predestined to be conformed to My image.  It is My Holy Spirit Who is the refiner.

Your part in the refining process is to be pliable in the hands of My Spirit.  If you resist His work in you, then He will resist you.  This is not at all pleasant.

My exhortation to you is that every morning you commit the members of your body to be used as instruments of My righteousness, peace, joy and love.  I am the potter and you are the clay.  A potter may have to put the clay on a spinning wheel over and over again, until He is pleased with the results.
ROMANS 8:29, 6:13

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

BREATH

It is not until you experience a breathing problem that you are so grateful for the next breath.  If ever you experience this problem, I want you to ask My Holy Spirit to help you to breathe.  My Holy Spirit is the breath of God and He is able to help you breathe.

Daily My Holy Spirit awaits the opportunity not only to help you take the next breath, but also to help you breathe in His anointing.  Few of My beloved take the time to just sit quietly in My presence.  When you do take that time in silence, listen for the still voice of My Spirit.

After listening, I want you to ask My Spirit to anoint you afresh in the morning.  Then breathe in My anointing.  When you do this your spirit and your body will be in rhythm with My heart beat.

PSALM 33:6;

Tuesday, June 26, 2018

OFF

I know how you check to be sure that everything in your house is off before you leave it.  You do this to prevent any fires and also to save electricity.

As you are turning everything off in your house today before you leave, there is something that I want you turn off.  I want you to turn off or put off your old man and dress yourself in the new man.

My servant Paul learned that he daily had to reckon himself dead to sin and alive to Me. This morning declare out loud, "I put off the old man and I dress Myself in the new man.  Lord, you are the new man.  Help Me to keep the old man off all day long.

COLOSSIANS 3:9; ROMANS 6:11

COMPREHEND

My friend Paul prayed that the church at Ephesus might comprehend My love.  My love is beyond your mental ability to comprehend.

When I revealed My character to Moses, I passed by him and declared My character sketch.
I declared that I am a God of mercy, truth, grace and forgiveness.

Paul prayed that the church might comprehend the length, the width, the height, and the depth of My love.  The length of My love is My mercy because it is extended to every generation.  The width of My love is My truth because My truth sets you free.  The height of My love is My grace because it comes from My throne room of grace.  The depth of My love is My forgiveness because I can go deep into every heart and forgive every sin (past, present, and future).  Meditate on My love today.

EXODUS 34:6-7; EPHESIANS 3:16-21

Friday, June 22, 2018

CONSTANT

There are very few things in your life that are constant.  Situations and circumstances can change daily.  Sometimes you may feel that a health issue will never get better.  It is hard for people who are in constant pain to believe that the pain will cease.

The truth, however, is that things can change in your life overnight.  There are two things in your life that will always be constant.  Those two things are My love for you and My Word.

Cling to those two unchanging things today, and you will have an anchor for your soul that will keep you from wavering in faith.

COLOSSIANS 3:2

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

CUSTOM

There are many definitions for custom.  There are certain customs in countries that people observe.  You can purchase merchandise that is custom made.  Both of these uses of this word can relate to My your eternal destination and My eternal love for you.

The country you live in since you believed in Me is the Kingdom of God.  You are a citizen of heaven.  The customs in heaven are glorious.  The main custom in heaven is worshipping Me for all eternity.

My love for you is custom made.  You are unique, and I know your heart completely.  I have designed your life to help you grow in intimacy with Me.  Of course, you still have free will. You can decide whether or not to follow My designated, designed plan for you.  Choose today to follow My plan simply by asking My Holy Spirit to help you be on the same page He is on as He reads your Book of Life.

PSALM 139

Sunday, June 17, 2018

DELAYS

Throughout your life, you have experienced delays: delays in traffic, delays in answered prayer, delays in healing, and many other delays.  Often you cannot understand why these delays happen.

Daniel had the same problem.  He was praying for his nation, and he had even fasted for three weeks. Still he heard nothing from My throne room until I sent an angel to explain the delay.  The explanation was that the delay occurred because there was warfare in the spirit realm.

The good news is that My angel told him that from the moment he prayed I heard his prayer. At that very moment I began to battle with My angels in the spirit realm.  Daniel received his explanation for the delay, and he also received the answer to his prayer.  When you release your concerns to Me, I immediately take up the battle for you, and I always win.  The battle is Mine and the victory is yours.

DANIEL10

THINGS

Whenever you have to move to a smaller home, you have to discern what things to discard and what precious things to take to your future home.  You will not have that worry when you are about to leave this earth.

You can take nothing with you to your future home in heaven.  However, there are a few things that will be waiting for you in heaven.  All the prayers you have prayed will be recorded in the Book of Remembrance.  All the people you have witnessed to will be waiting to thank you when you reach heaven.

The two most precious things that you hold dear on Earth will also be there.  My presence will be there and My Word will be there.  While you are still on Earth hold fast to those two things because you will have them for all eternity.

MALACHI 3:16

Tuesday, June 12, 2018

LAST

When good experiences happen in life, you often want to repeat those experiences or have them supernaturally last forever.  I know how you treasure those times when My presences is so real and  you want that feeling to last forever.

When you have those times with Me that are so precious, I want you to begin to thank Me for providing a way that you can have precious times in My presence for all eternity.

You used to sing a song, "I have a longing in My heart for Jesus.  Just to be near Him and to feel His presence."  Today spend just a few moments with Me and know that even without feeling My presence I am near to you, and I will be near to you throughout this lifetime and all eternity.

PSALM 16:11

Friday, June 8, 2018

REALITY

Sometimes it is hard to face reality when circumstances become difficult.  It is during those times that I want you to turn to My Word.  I want you to face every circumstance in life with the faith that overcomes every obstacle.

I am more real than any reality.  When you abide in My Word, I will give you a faith vision that will help you resist receiving discouragement when you face difficult times.

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by My Word.  I will surround you with a shield of faith.  Every negative word that my enemy or other people may say will bounce off that shield. When you look to Me and My Word instead of looking to the circumstances, you will move ahead with confidence because you know that My will is being accomplished in your life..

ROMANS 10:17

Thursday, June 7, 2018

EXPERIENCES

When you look back over your life, you can think of many experiences when I showed Myself strong on your behalf.  I record such experiences in your Book of Remembrance.  I also record every time you mention My name and even think about My name.

Many keep a daily journal of their experiences as you do.  This is a wonderful way to remind you of My faithfulness to carry you through many trials.  One day you will understand why I allowed such trials in your life.

Until all is revealed to you, I want you to know that the purpose of trials is to form My character qualities in you and also to have you display My joy, peace, and hope even in the midst of horrific trials.  My servant Paul observed the countenance of Stephen as he was being stoned, and he could not forget Stephen's face that displayed My peace.

MALACHI 3:16; ACTS 7:55-60

TRANSFER

There is usually a transfer of wealth that is mentioned in a will.  Family members can be satisfied with their inheritance, but too often they are not.

You are a member of My family, and the inheritance I have for you will not only satisfy you, but it should give you joy unspeakable and full of glory.  You are a joint heir with Me.  The moment you received Me as your Lord and Savior, I transferred all My riches in glory to you.

My Word is My will and My testament.  Today I want you to review some of the riches that you have already inherited.

GALATIANS 4:7; ROMANS 8:16-17

REAP

Many think that I will return very soon.  However, no one knows the date, not even Me.  Only My Father knows when I will return when the reapers, My Holy Angels, will come to severe the wicked from the just.

I gave the sign of My coming to My disciples.  I will only return when My gospel is preached in all the world for a witness to every nation.  You heard just recently that there are over 3 billion people on Earth who have not yet heard the gospel.  If this is a true fact, there is much work yet to do.

The fields are white unto harvest.  I have chosen you to be alive during this last great harvest.  I want you to sow My Word to those you meet, and My Holy Spirit will do the rest. When you sow My Word, you will reap a great harvest.

MATTHEW 24:14; JOHN 4:35


Sunday, June 3, 2018

REWIND

Sometimes when circumstances in life become difficult you feel like you need a fresh start.  You want to rewind the past and go forward just like you rewind thread on a spindle when it gets knotted.
However, you cannot rewind the past.

My servant Paul seldom looked back on the past.  Instead, he pressed forward to the mark, for the prize of the high calling of God in Me. He did review his past, but he only did this to prove that it was My grace that had led him thus far.

My grace has sustaining power.  My grace is able to give you endurance even during trials that never seem to end.  Look forward to My grace today.  My grace is the supernatural power to do what is naturally impossible.

PHILIPPIANS 3:14

EVACUATION

There can be many evacuation plans made to avoid death when there is an earthquake, a volcanic eruption, tornadoes, and floods near residences.  You are observing more and more people forced to leave their homes immediately because some catastrophic event is about to happen near where they live.

There is one evacuation plan that I have ordained.  That will happen when I return.  Both those who have died and those who are living who believe in Me will meet Me in the air when I return.  You can look forward to this time.  Until that time, I want you to live life fully.

There is much work to do in this last great harvest that you are experiencing.  The beginning of sorrows I spoke of is what you are experiencing now, but this is only a sign that the earth is in labor just before My return is birthed.  Give thanks today that I will be with you always even until the end.

MATTHEW 24:4-8, 28:20

ENHANCE

Good writers try to enhance their novels by telling stories that will catch the attention of their readers.  My Word is inspired by My Spirit, and the writers of My Word gave life experiences that need no enhancement.

I have heard the saying, "Truth is better than fiction."  This is a good saying because My Word is truth. My Word has the power to even divide the soul from the spirit and is able to discern the very thoughts and intents of your heart.

As you read My Word today, ask My Holy Spirit to instruct you about your day.  I know what lays ahead of you this day, and I can give you the exact passage of Scripture that will help you throughout the day. Ask My Spirit to direct you to that special passage and then listen  to hear His, still, quiet voice.

HEBREWS 4:12


Thursday, May 31, 2018

REQUESTS

I want you to have confidence daily that I hear your requests.  John wrote that if you ask anything according to My will that I not only hear you, but I also will grant the requests that you require of Me.

There are two wings that will send your prayers soaring into My Throne Room.  Those wings are FAITH AND FORGIVENESS.  When you pray with faith and doubt not, your prayers begin to soar rapidly into My throne room.  However, those prayers can be blocked from reaching My throne room if you have not forgiven all everything.

Paul exhorted believers to not be anxious about anything.  When you pray with fear and anxiety in your heart, your prayers do not reach Me.  Daily I want you to pray without fear or doubting.  I want you to pray believing and receiving with thanksgiving.  Make your requests known to Me today with thanksgiving, faith, and make sure that you have forgiven all those who have hurt you.

TRINITY

It is hard for many to understand the fact that I am God in the flesh, and that My Father, My Holy Spirit and Me are one.  As you meditate on this mystery, I want to give you some thoughts concerning the Trinity.

Remember that you are created in My image. You are a spirit that is embodied in a temple of flesh.  I have given you a brain that can experience emotions and make decisions. In fact, no other creature has all of these attributes.

I am the Word of God made Flesh.  When My Father spoke, "Let there be light," I was there because I am the light of the world Who lights every one born into the world.  My Spirit has the ability to help you make decisions and feel emotions.  My Father is spirit, and I was sent to reveal in the flesh the very character of My Father.  Now it is up to you to reveal the character of the "Three in One."

GENESIS 1:3; JOHN 1:1-10

BACKGROUND

Before a person is hired for a job, the future employers usually require a background check.  Some may even require that the future employee be finger printed.

My servant Paul listed his background, and his background as a religious Jew was impressive.  However, he counted all of those things that would have gained him an entrance into the highest religious leadership positions as loss for Christ.

Paul had his priorities straight, and I want you to always have your priorities straight.  Position and power in this world mean nothing, but  your position with Me in heaven gains you the authority by My shed blood to bind every demonic spirit that oppresses you.  Rejoice today because you are seated with Me in heaven far above all principalities and powers.

PHILIPPIANS 3:4-7

You are about to enter the season when you will be considering who will represent you in Congress.  When you make your choice, you want that representative to present your family, financial, and health welfare in a way that will cause you and your family to prosper and be in health for many years to come.

I am your representative before My Heavenly Father.  I present all of  your concerns to My Father and then we pray together in agreement about those concerns.

I am the perfect representative on your behalf because I became flesh and lived on Earth.  I know exactly how you feel because I was touched by all the feelings of your infirmities (your weaknesses).
Today express all of your concerns in prayer to Me, and I will perfect those concerns.

HEBREWS 4:15;  PSALM 138:8

RUSH

Most everyone in the age that you live seem to be in such a rush.  People rush to work with a cup of coffee in their hands.  They rush to try to complete projects.  Many believers even rush in the morning to squeeze in their quiet times with Me.

I want to remind you of how important it is to still your soul every morning.  This happens when you spend unrushed time with Me.  You do not have to spend hours with Me.  Only a few moments of silence before Me will help you to tune up your soul to hear My voice all the day long.

My servant David said that he stilled his soul like a weaned child.  A weaned child is not crying in desperation any longer for his parents to meet his needs.  Instead, he rests in the arms of his parents with the full assurance that they will take care of him.  This morning I want you to rest in My arms and release every care to Me.

PSALM 131:1-2

WISH

Wishing will not make it so. Many wish that things could be different in their lives.  However, nothing seems to change. Then discouragement sets in and usually you will hear a voice that says, "Things will never change."  That voice does not come from Me.  It comes from the devil.

There is only one thing in this life that will never change.  That one thing is My love for you.  My lover for you is everlasting.  I am the "Unchanging God."  I am the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Instead of wishing things could change in your life, begin to cry out to Me for wisdom.  Ask Me to show you promises in My Word that you can declare.  When you use the sword of My Spirit, My Word," in spiritual warfare by proclaiming My promises, you will see things change in your life.

HEBREWS 13:8

CONCERTS

This is the season when you can enjoy many outdoor concerts.  The combination of nature plus beautiful music is a little taste of heaven.  In heaven you will hear music like you never have heard before.  There will be harmony blended with grace and love plus instruments that were used when David was King. The heavenly landscapes will be beyond description.

Daily I give you small tastes of heaven, but often you never notice. Paul wrote that believers should set their affection upon things that are above and not on earthly things.  When you do this, you will be able to recognize those little tastes of heaven that I give you daily.

Today, watch for those small revelations of heavenly things, and your heart will sing for joy along with the angels who rejoice every time someone repents and comes to know Me.

COLOSSIANS 3:2; LUKE 15:7

SPEND

As you spend more time just waiting to hear My voice during your quiet times, you will become more dependent upon Me.

I long to see My beloved depend upon Me for everything just as an infant depends upon His parents to meet his every need.

What a joy I have when you ask Me to give you wisdom.  It is My delight to dispense wisdom daily to My beloved, but so few ask Me for wisdom.  Today, ask Me for wisdom about those things that are a concern to you.  Then I will be able to perfect all those things that are concerning you.

JAMES 1:5-6; PSALM 138:8

STAND

When you have prayed every prayer you know to pray, and you just run out of words to pray, it is time then just to begin to pray in  the Spirit and thank Me for hearing and answering.

Even when you do not see any manifestation of My intervention for you on Earth, rest assured that I am doing battle for you in the spiritual realm.  Remember Daniel and how he fasted and prayed, but he did not receive and answer until three weeks had past.

I sent My messenger to him to tell him to stand upright because the moment he made his request, I heard, but the answer was delayed because of the intense warfare in the spiritual realm.  Be at peace and stand and see the salvation (the wholeness) that I have already purchased for you manifested on Earth.  Whenever you pray, pray believing and receiving, and you will see the answer to your request.

DANIEL 10:11-14; LUKE 11:10; MARK 11:24

HOME

The saying that there is no place like home is a saying that many in the age you live cannot say.  So many families experience strife, abuse, and darkness.  My heart is to invade such homes with My light.

I am the light of the world Who lights every person born into the world.  However, sadly, many choose to walk in darkness rather than the light.  Many families are under curses because of the darkness that was entered by their past idolatrous generations. Those ancestral ties can be broken.

Light always penetrates the darkness. Pray that the light of My love and My good news will penetrate those hearts that have been broken because of abuse,  selfishness, and curses.  A nation is only as righteous as the families who stand for righteousness.  Today give praise that your family knows and loves Me.

JOHN 1:1-13

FAIR

It is difficult to understand why some people seem to have more troubles than others.  Many feel like I treat people unfairly..

I am no respecter of persons.  The rain falls on the just and the unjust. Keep in mind that you live in a fallen world that is on its way to complete destruction.  You are experiencing the beginning of sorrows that will usher in My return to Earth.  This means that there will be more troubles in the world as the days draw closer to My return.

I am not fair.  I am a just God Who at the end of time will rightly judge people on Earth.  I will judge not only the actions of people, but I also will judge their motives.  Praise Me today because I already see you as righteous because you received My righteousness in exchange for your unrighteousness.

MATTHEW 24:6

Friday, May 11, 2018

WHY?

When you go through trials, you wonder why there seem to be so many obstacles along the way.  Many call those obstacles setbacks.  However, I call those obstacles opportunities for Me to show Myself strong on your behalf.

I told you that when you face a mountain, you are in faith to speak to that mountain and say, "Be removed and cast into the sea." As you encounter obstacles that seem like huge mountains, shout to the mountain and tell it to move in My name..

Remember that I do not call you to survive, but I call you to overcome.  If there were no mountains, you would have nothing to overcome.  Revue the rewards I have for those who overcome mountains in the revelation that I gave John, and your heart will be at peace and filled with faith.

MATTHEW 21:21

GENUINE

When you go shopping for something special, you want to make sure that what you purchase is genuine.  It is always a disappointment when you discover that what you purchased turns out to be a fake.

How can you ever be sure that anything is genuine?  There is one thing that you can count on being genuine and that one thing is My love for you.

I purchased you with My shed blood that is more precious than gold.  I love you with an everlasting love that never fades.  Today think about how genuine My love for you is, and you will feel the warmth of My presence all day long.

1 PETER 1:18-21

Monday, May 7, 2018

RUSH

As I observe your age, I see how everyone is in a rush to do things.  Patience is a virtue that I seldom see.  Fast and furious are words that do not apply to My kingdom's work.

I designed the works for you to do from the foundation of the Earth.  At the end of time you will be judged for rewards according to the works that you completed.  My servant Paul knew how important it was to finish the work I had created him to do.

Paul reached a point in his life when he knew that his work was done.  He never rushed to complete the works I designed for him.  Instead, he simply gave every day to Me and asked Me to lead and guide him to do the next thing.  Faith can only work in the present moment, and Paul knew that.
Today, I want you to give Me the moments of your day, and then listen for My Holy Spirit to tell you the next thing to do. I then will enable you to complete every good work in My kingdom.

EPHESIANS 2:10

INFORMATION

You live in an age when you are flooded with information.  This can lead to confusion if you are not able to discern what is true information and what is false information.

There is only one way you can discern the true facts.  When Pilate asked Me what is truth, I did not answer.  However, he was looking at the One Who is all truth.  I am the way the truth and the life.

My Words are also truth.  My Word is powerful and when you not only read My Word, but you also mediate on My Word and declare My Word, you will have keen discernment to what facts are lies and what facts are true.  The measure of truth is in My Word.  Weigh all the information you receive with My Word, and you will not be easily deceived.

JOHN 18:38; HEBREWS 4:12

WEARY

I do not want you to grow weary of well doing.  When difficult circumstances do not seem to change and you begin to grow weary of facing the same daily challenges, I want you to draw from the wells of salvation within you.

You have fresh wells of the water of My Spirit that you can draw from when you need refreshing. I supply the wells, but you must supply the bucket to draw from those wells.  That bucket is your joy.  Therefore, with joy will you draw water from the wells of salvation.

I told My disciples three things that they could do that would guarantee that their joy would be full and that My joy would remain in them.  Those three things were to abide in Me, abide in My Word, and abide in My love.  Today do those three things, and you will not grow weary.

BURDENS

I gave the invitation to My beloved to come to Me when they are heavy laden with burdens.  When you give Me your burdens and all of your cares, I promised to take your burdens so that you can have rest for your soul.

I also said that My burden is light.  As you give your burdens to Me, I never become overwhelmed by your burdens.  Your burdens comes to Me through your prayers and supplications.  The moment I receive your burdens I give those burdens to My Father as I intercede with perfect intercession about your burdens.

My burden is light in weight because I do not keep them. I share them with My Father.  When you give Me your burdens I also can shine My light of revelation knowledge and wisdom to you so that  you can make the right decisions about what concerns you.

MATTHEW 11:28-30; PSALM 138:8

Monday, April 30, 2018

BROKEN HEARTS

There are a multitude of reasons that someone can experience a broken heart.  In most cases broken hearts are caused by broken relationships.  Sometimes hearts are broken because circumstances in life become almost unbearable.

When you face being heart broken, remember that when you believed and received My forgiveness for your sins (past, present, and future),  I gave you My righteousness in exchange for your self-righteousness.  I provided a way that you can protect yourself against having a broken heart.

Daily put the breastplate of righteousness on your heart by declaring that you now stand in My righteousness, not your own righteousness.  When you feel that your heart is about to break, declare these words boldly out  loud: "My righteousness is of Jesus Christ." When you do this, no weapon that My enemy sends you will prosper. I came to heal broken hearts.

ISAIAH 54:17

Sunday, April 22, 2018

IMPART

The word "impart" means to make known, to reveal, to give, to share a portion, to tell, and to communicate.  Every morning My Holy Spirit stands by to impart to you all that you need to know to face a new day.

I want to challenge you to take time in your prayer time in the morning to ask My Spirit to give you the exact portion from My Word that will empower you to be an overcomer each day.  My Spirit will be faithful to impart to you the exact portion of Scripture that will strengthen you no matter what you may face each day.

As you read the portion of Scripture that My Spirit gives you, He will also give you understanding, wise counsel from My throne room, and the might and power that comes with My anointing..

ISAIAH 11:2-3

SURVIVE

Many in this generation are making provision to survive during a nuclear war.  Dry food is being sold and other provisions are being stored.  The mindset in many is to do whatever is necessary to survive.

I have not called you to survive.  I have called you to overcome.  Taking actions to spare your physical body during crisis times is less important than taking actions to provide for your spiritual needs today and in the future.

Your life here on earth is just a hand's breath.  The moment you accepted Me, you entered the realm of eternity where you will live forever.  Daily take care of your spiritual needs by feeding yourself the Word of God, communing with Me which is your spiritual exercise, sharing My good news with others, and interceding for others. When you are engaged in these eternal activities, you will not have to fear the future or be in a survival mode.

REVELATION 3:12

EXPLORATION

Your country was discovered because a man had a spirit of exploration.  He wanted to go to parts of the earth that he did not know existed.

The spirit of exploration was in Columbus, and every one I created has that same spirit.  I placed that spirit within mankind because I desired for people to explore the wonders not only of My universe, but also of Earth.

I want you to use that same spirit of exploration to explore the hidden treasures in My Word.  I want to challenge you to read My Word out loud when you are in your quiet times.  My angels hearken to the voice of My Word and also the spirit of your inner man is built up when you read My Word out loud.  Ready to explore today?

PSALM 103:20-21

ADVANCE

Most everyone desires to advance in their careers, school, and knowledge.  These advancements are worthy earthly goals.  However, advancing in My kingdom is just the opposite of going forward.

You advance in your spiritual goals when you become more dependent upon Me.  I said that whoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter in." When I spoke this, I was speaking of the infantile stage of a child who depends upon his parents for everything.

True spiritual maturity in My kingdom requires you to be extremely dependent upon Me.  When you recognize the truth that without Me you can do nothing, you are advancing in My kingdom. As you trust Me to accomplish even the smallest tasks in life and to take care of the smallest details of your life, you will be advancing in My kingdom.

LUKE 18:17; JOHN 15:5

ACCESS

The word I hear often in this generation is "access."  Everyone wants easy access to most everything.  If the access to things is not instant then people often become frustrated.

You can rejoice today because you have instant access to My throne room.  At any time you can boldly enter My throne room through My blood and find grace in time of need.

You also have instant access to the help of My Holy Spirit Who stands ready to interpret My Word to you and to give you understanding of kingdom principles.  Immediate access to My Word is daily available.  All you have to do is open your Bible and read.  Enjoy every day the instant access I have provided for you.

HEBREWS 10:19;

COUNTERFEIT

I am concerned about the young generation in your age.  I notice that many of their relationships are based on communications on the internet.  Such relationships are counterfeit.

The goal of those who make counterfeit money is to make the money appear almost exactly like real money.  We had no such thing when I walked on Earth.  In fact communication with others was almost always face to face.  We had no internet or even telephones.

My enemy is in the counterfeit business.  He wants to seduce the young into thinking that communicating with friends is better on the internet.  I am face to face with you every day even though you cannot see Me.  I am all truth, and I desire to have a real relationship with you today.
Take time to be with Me daily, and you will discover what a real and true relationship is.

JOHN 14:6

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

GRACE

I want your conversations to be seasoned with grace.  This is a tall order, especially when you are having difficulty communicating with a person.  However, when you depend upon Me, I can give you immeasurable grace.

You will find that when you are gracious in your conversation with others, they will pay more attention to what you are saying.  I have promised that when you open your mouth I will fill it.

I will only fill your mouth with grace, when you submit your conversations to Me in the morning.  You have no idea what verbal interactions you will have with people during the day, but I know.
I will prepare your heart in the morning to be gracious even when people are rude to you.

COLOSSIANS 4:6; PSALM 81:10

UNCHANGING

I am the same yesterday, today, and forever.  When you read the gospel accounts of My life, observe what I did and what I said.  I healed all those who came to Me.  I delivered all those who needed deliverance. I  taught and preached the kingdom of God.

I am still doing that today.  The same power I was anointed with as I did mighty miracles dwells within you.  When you pray for people to be healed or delivered, recognize that it is not you ministering to people.  I minister through you by My power (the power of My Spirit).

Focus on My unchanging ability to do the same miracles I did when I walked along the Galilee.
Know that without Me, you can do nothing, but through that power working within you, you can do even more than I did when I walked on Earth.

ROMANS 8:11


Thursday, April 5, 2018

WELCOME

As I was led by the Spirit in my travels throughout Israel, I took nothing with Me.  I only had the clothes on My back. I told a scribe who wanted to travel with Me: "The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests: but the Son of man has nowhere to lay His head.

There were many of My beloved who welcomed Me  I was always welcomed in the home of Lazarus in Bethany.  Mary and Martha saw to My every need.  Their hospitality was so caring.

I want you to always have a spirit of hospitality, especially in these last days.  You may not be aware, but you could be entertaining angels.  There will be more and more visitations of angels as the day draws near to My second coming.

MATTHEW8:8:19-20; HEBREWS 13:2

Tuesday, April 3, 2018

URGENT

Whenever you feel pressed or pushed, take a few minutes and release whatever care you have to Me.
My enemy wants you to make decisions in haste.

I want you to wait on Me.  Waiting on Me means trusting Me with all of heart and releasing your cares to Me.  The promise is that when you wait upon Me, your energy will be renewed liked the eagles.

Eagles do not flap their wings.  They glide on the wind currents.  I want you to glide on the wind of My Holy Spirit today and rest in Me.  I have promised to perfect everything that concerns you.

ISAIAH 40:31; PSALM 138:8

DIRECT

Sometimes you may wish that people who share things with you would be more direct.  Often the message they are giving you is clouded with many facts that you cannot absorb.

I was very direct with My disciples about My future. I told them many times what I would face in Jerusalem.  I would die and then be raised again on  the third day.  They, however, did not get the message, and could not believe the women who told them that I had been raised from the dead.  They even said that their message was nonsense.

My disciples all finally believed when I appeared in the flesh to them.  Seeing is believing.  However, those who believe in Me without seeing My bodily resurrected form are blessed because the faith they express in believing and not seeing opens them up to believing all the promises written in My Word.  Today believe and receive the promises that are all yes and amen in Me.

LUKE 24:10-11; 2 CORINTHIANS 1:20

Saturday, March 31, 2018

FUTURE

I like the saying, "We do not know the future, but we do know who holds the future."  I am the One Who holds your future, and I know exactly the days that are numbered for you in your book of life.
This should give you great comfort.

So many are trying to predict the future, but I would rather you live a day at a time.  I told My disciples not to take no thought about tomorrow because tomorrow will take thought for the things of itself.

When you truly know My character and believe that your life is hid with Me in My Father's heart, you will never have to be concerned for your future.  All my thoughts for you are for good, not for evil to give you both a purpose in this life and an expected end.

MATTHEW 6:34; JEREMIAH 29:11

ACTIVE

As people age, their usual goal is to stay active.  I have heard the expression, "If you do not use it, you will lose it."  That statement is about the physical body.  However, this principal is also true about all things spiritual.

When you neglect your time with Me and are not reading and meditating on My Word daily, your spirit will become weak.  It is the spirit of man that sustains a person's spiritual and physical health..

My adversary loves to take advantage of weak areas in  your life.  You become vulnerable to the attack of the spirit of infirmity when your spirit is weak.  Today feed yourself My Word and declare My Word out loud.  Allow My Spirit to infuse you with My joy, and you will stay active both physically and spiritually for many, many years.

PROVERBS 16:14

Thursday, March 29, 2018

IMPORTANT

One question I want you to ask yourself daily is: "What is important?"  This is a question that is on the hearts of many.  However, few people understand where they can go to discover the right answer.

Our lives change daily.  We have no idea what lies ahead of us in a day's time.  However, I know all and see all.  My Holy Spirit came to be your helper.  He and only He can help you understand the most important things to get done in a day's time.

I want to challenge you today to commit all of your "TO DO LIST" to Me.  My Word says commit your works to Me, and I will establish your thoughts.  I know when and where and how you should accomplish those things that are most important to advance My kingdom on Earth every day.

PROVERBS 16:3

Wednesday, March 28, 2018

ELIMINATE

There are certain things in your life that I want you to eliminate. I want you to eliminate all negative words from your speech.  I have heard you sing the song, "Accentuate the positive.  Eliminate the negative.  Latch on to the affirmative, and don't mess with Mr. In-between."  This is great advice.

"Mr. In-between" is My adversary, the devil, who wants you to repeat every negative thought he gives you.  I also want you to eliminate all doubt from your mind.  The devil wants you to waver between doubt and faith.  This is the in-between stage that keeps your prayers from being effective.

There is something I want you never to eliminate.  That something is your time with Me.  Your quiet times with Me when you pray and read My Word, will give you a positive outlook on life no matter what you are going through at the present time.

JAMES 1:5-8

Tuesday, March 27, 2018

PROJECT

I have heard the saying that "It takes a village."  This saying expresses the need for more than one person to accomplish some project.  I like this saying because My Father created more than a village to accomplish His redemptive plan for mankind.

It was expedient that I go away so that My Holy Spirit could inhabit My body on Earth (My church).
I am empowering vessels just like you with My Holy Spirit to accomplish this monumental task of sharing My gospel to every nation.  I will not return until this project is completed..

Today think about ways that you can share My wonderful liberating gospel with others. You can do your part as you listen carefully to the leading of My Spirit.

MATTHEW 24:14

PROTECTION

I want you to always remember that you are under the shelter of My wings and that I have set you in a pavilion far away from the strife of tongues.

When you encounter challenging situations, I want you to picture yourself in that pavilion.  I am present with you.  There are satin pillowcases surrounding your pavilion and you cannot hear any sounds, but the sound of My voice.

What I have described to you is called the secret place of the Most High God.  Remain in this secret place all day long, and you will be protected from the turmoil of this world and the plans of My enemy to harm you.

PSALM 91; 27:5; 31:20

Friday, March 23, 2018

TEMPORARY

Life is temporary.  When you understand this, you will be on your way to allowing Me to make every moment in your life fruitful in My kingdom.  Everyone born has the same two appointments.  There is a time to be born and a time to die.

No one wants to die before their time.  A good prayer to pray for those you love is that they make their appointment with death right on time (not a day early or a day late).

I knew that I only had three short years to minister on Earth.  This is why I met with My Father everyday, and asked Him to lead Me by the Spirit to be at the right place and at the right time to fulfill His agenda that day.  My Father knows how many days you have on Earth.  Those days are written in your "Book of Life."  Today every minute of your day can be fruitful as you yield yourself to be led by My Holy Spirit

PSALM 139:16

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

PRICE

Before you purchase something, you usually want a bargain.  You want the best quality at the lowest price.  My shed blood is the price I paid to purchase you when I died on the tree to forgive you of all your sins and to break every curse over you.

The exchange that took place that day was more than a bargain.    When you received Me as your Lord and Savior, you exchanged the filthy rags of your sin for My eternal righteousness and riches in glory.  This was a bargain that will benefit you for all eternity.  

I paid the highest price for you because you are worth that price. You are more valuable to Me than silver and gold. Meditate on these truths the next time you go shopping.

1 PETER 1:18-19

Friday, March 16, 2018

TRAVEL

You live in an age when you can travel the world,  When I walked on Earth, I mainly traveled around the Galilee, Jerusalem, Capernaum and a few other places in Israel.  Wherever I went, people followed Me once I was baptized in the Jordan.  News of the miracles I did traveled fast even though there were no telephones.

Think about how you have the opportunity to share My gospel throughout the world just by sitting at your computer.  You have the opportunity to witness to millions.

Today I want you to meditate on the truth that My return will only happen when My gospel is preached to every nation.  Pray today for divine appointments to share My gospel with others, and even think of ways you can share My gospel to other nations.

MATTHEW 24:14

Wednesday, March 14, 2018

TRYING

You do live in trying times.  As the days draw near to My return, there will be all kinds of horrific events that will take place.  I warned My disciples about these signs.  The greatest sign of My return will be that My gospel will be preached to every nation.

During these trying times, many of My beloved will have an increase of trying times in their own lives simply because My enemy will seek to stop the spread of My gospel.  When you face these trying times, I do not want you to try in your own self-effort to leap over the hurdles.

Release every care to Me, and when you do this, I will be holding you in My arms while we jump over these hurdles together.  Take comfort in My words today.

MATTHEW 24

Saturday, March 10, 2018

INSIGHT

When I walked on Earth, My Father filled Me with His Holy Spirit when I was baptized in the Jordan. It was then that I began my ministry, but first I was led by the Spirit to be tempted of the devil for forty days.

I know you wander why the Holy Spirit led me into this wilderness experience.  I was tempted in every point just as you are tempted today so that you can now be victorious over temptation,  I was without sin, however..  The devil knew that My assignment was to enjoy My Father's creation, worship My Father, and glorify My Father by making His true character known to mankind.

The devil tempted me to enjoy My Father's creation by satisfying My flesh with physical food, rather than relying on the daily bread of My Father's Word. Then he tempted me to bow down and worship him with the promise that he would give me the kingdoms of this Earth.  Lastly, he tempted Me to jump off the pinnacle of the Temple. I refused to take this short cut to glory. I came against every temptation by speaking the Word out loud, and you can do the same.

RELAY

My servant Paul exhorted believers to run the race of life with the goal to win the prize.  All of us are in the race as believers and the prize will be given to us at the end of the race when we meet Jesus face to face.

The race we are in right now is a team effort.  It is a relay race in which the baton is passed from one runner to another.  When one runner has run a measured distance then the baton is passed to another runner.  The strength of each runner is vital.

Every runner is trained to run the length he is given well.  Jesus' words to Peter is an exhortation for all in the body of Christ.  He said that He prayed that Peter's faith not fail him, and it did not.  We join together in this relay race petitioning our Lord with faith that as a team together through prayers filled with faith, we all will claim the prize.

CONNECT

When you cannot connect with loved ones who do not live close to you, it is human nature to worry.  Usually you have all kinds of worry scenarios that run through your mind.  When a disconnect occurs, pray instead of worrying.

I am able to see your loved ones and care for your loved ones as you release them to Me.  My Holy Spirit will give you My peace that passes all understanding as you pray to reconnect with your loved ones.

Your connection with Me will never be interrupted.  I am the breath you breathe.  I am your life.  I am life itself.  Even on days when you do not communicate with Me, I am present with you.  In My presence is fullness of joy.  Today receive joy as you meditate on My nearness to you.

PSALM 16:11
