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.

CANCEL

You rejoice when a debt you have owed is canceled.  You have the opportunity daily to cancel debts.  I do not mean monetary debts.

When I died on the tree, I said, "It is finished."  I was saying that your debt had been paid.  I canceled the debt of sin that you owed Me, and I offered the world the opportunity to be forgiven.  I became the perfect sacrifice that satisfied My Father as a payment for the sins of the world.

Now, because you believe in Me and receive My forgiveness, you can pay this forward by forgiving those people who have sinned against you.  Then pray a blessing over these people. You then will rejoice.

JOHN 19:30; LUKE 11:4;

REMIT

You are a royal priest.  I know this is hard for you to believe, but that is what My Word says about you.  After My resurrection, I appeared to My disciples and breathed into them My Holy Spirit.  I said, "Receive the Holy Spirit." This is when they were born of My Spirit.

After I breathed My Spirit into My disciples, I said, "Whosoever sins you remit, they are remitted unto them, and whosoever sins you retain, they are retained."  Only I can forgive sins, but as My priest you can forgive others with My forgiveness.

I have given you that priestly role. Whenever you retain another person's sins instead of forgiving them, you will be bound. Confess their sins, forgive, and release their sins to Me and you will be free.

1 PETER 2:9; JOHN 20:23

FATE

I often hear this phrase, "It is just fate that we met."  When you are in My kingdom on Earth, and you are seeking to do My will daily, nothing in your life is just fate.

I have plans for you and they are all good.  They are designed to give you a purpose in life and a beautiful destiny.  During your life on Earth, I am daily performing My will through you.  I am daily helping you complete the works I have prepared for you to accomplish.

I want you to look at each day as My day to show forth My glory thru you.  Every day I have chosen you to share My love and good news with others.  Remember fate had nothing to do with the people you meet during the day.  I am the one who gives you many divine appointments with others.

JEREMIAH 29:11

COMPROMISE

When people compromise, they are willing to meet someone half way. Hidden in this word, "compromise" is the word, "promise."  There are many promises in My Word, but in order to have those promises fulfilled in your life, you cannot compromise.

Some of the promises in My Word are unconditional, but many of them require that you do your part.  For example, I promise to draw near to you if you will draw near to Me. This is one promise that I do not want you to compromise.

My commandment is that you love Me with all of your heart and that you love others as I have loved you.  My love is unconditional. In order to love others with My love, you need to daily ask My Holy Spirit to fill you with My love.

JOHN 15:10; ROMANS 5:5


Saturday, August 17, 2019

ADMIT

It is not easy to admit that you were wrong.  Sometimes you even have to admit that you have hurt others by your behavior.  However, My Word says to confess your sins to one another so that you may be healed.

Healing of past hurts in your own life and the lives of others that you have wounded is not easy.
What do you need to do when you know you have hurt others and even condemned yourself for doing so?

Confess you wrongdoing.  Ask those you have hurt to forgive you. Then release them to Me and pray for them.  Only I can heal their hurts. You will dig a well of discouragement in your soul if you keep replaying what you have done wrong in your mind. This is what My enemy wants you to do. Pray for them daily, and do not allow My enemy to condemn you.

JAMES 5:16


Friday, August 16, 2019

EXCEPTION

It is the nature of human beings to take exception to direct commands because they do not want to follow direct orders.  Often they seek a way to disobey.

This has been the case since the fall of mankind.  Adam and Eve were given a direct order not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  Immediately My enemy gave them the idea that My Father was withholding something good from them.

I gave a direct order when I said to love one another as I have loved you.  You need the help of My Holy Spirit to do this.  If you do not make exception to this commandment and ask My Holy Spirit to help you to love others as I love you, My peace, joy, and grace will abound in your life.

JOHN 13:34


Wednesday, August 14, 2019

DETERMINED

I determined the works that you are to accomplish in life before you were born.  I want you to be determined to accomplish those works before you come to be with Me.

Daily, I want you to commit your works to Me so that My Spirit can establish your thoughts.  Then inquire of Me before you make decisions about what to accomplish in a day's time.  Your schedule may change completely, but be open to the change.

You are in the last days, and I have prepared the hearts of many to receive My good news.  Many of those who trust Me also need a word of encouragement.  I want to use you as My messenger.  Let My Spirit lead you today.

EPHESIANS 2:10

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

FAITHFUL

My disciples were not faithful to Me or My Father as the days drew near to My crucifixion and even after My crucifixion.  Often fear will rob us of our faith.  Such was the case with My disciples.

After My last Passover, I was betrayed by one of the twelve and the rest of My disciples fled and hid. Peter denied Me three times because he feared for his life.  Fear is usually the first weapon My enemy forms against his victims.

After Pentecost, however, My disciples became fearless and faithful.  They were immersed in My Spirit. The same Spirit that raised Me from the dead raised them up to boldly and fearlessly declare My truths to the world. That same resurrection power is within you.  Meditate on that truth. today.

MARK 14:66-72; EPHESIANS 2:4-7

APPOINTMENTS

There are some weeks when your calendar is filled with appointments.  You may think you will have no time to spend quality time with Me.

I want to challenge you to take time no matter how busy your week is.  Take just a few minutes in the morning to review with Me the various appointments you must make that week.   Then commit each day of that week to Me.

When you commit your works to Me, My Holy Spirit will establish your thoughts and you will not have to be stressed over your full calendar.  You will receive a great reward when you spend just those few minutes with Me.  You will receive My joy because in My presence is fullness of joy and My joy will strengthen you each day.

PROVERBS 16:3; PSALM 16:11;

PERFECT

Sometimes when you receive a criticism, you often respond, "Well nobody is perfect!!" Your response is true.  Nobody is perfect except Me.

I provided the perfect sacrifice that ushered the way for the whole world to be saved from sin.  However, few have received Me as their Lord and Savior.

Because I am the perfect One, I am able to perfect everything that concerns you. Talk to Me today about your concerns, and then release them all to Me.  Your only concern then is that you continue to stay close to Me.

1 CORINTHIANS 13:10; PSALM 138:8

Sunday, August 4, 2019

FOCUS

With all the distractions you encounter, it is difficult for you to focus.  One of the main strategies of My enemy is to keep you from spending intimate time with Me.

You have to be intentional in order to carve out a quiet time that provides one on one communication with Me.

Most of the problems even the patriarchs encountered deveoloped because they failed to enquire of Me, and they also failed to wait to hear My voice before they made decisions.  When you ask, seek, and knock, I will open the door to your heart so that you can hear Me speak to your Spirit.

MATTHEW 7:7

AGEING

Remember when you were a teenager and how slowly the days and years went by. Now that you are aging, time seems to speed up.  The days and months go by and suddenly you are celebrating a new year.

How you feel about time is important to Me..  Paul felt like I would return very soon, and so did My disciples.  Believing that time was short gave Paul and My disciples an urgency to spread the gospel throughout the world.

No one knows when their appointment with death is, but I do want you to live out your days according to what is written in your Book of Life in heaven.  Until that appointed time, I exhort you to live each day as if it were your last on Earth.  When you do this, your days will be fruitful.

HEBREWWS 9:27

Wednesday, July 31, 2019

WEARY

I do not want you to become weary in well doing.  One of the strategies of My enemy is to wear you  out so that you will lose your effectiveness in sharing My good news with others.

Whenever you reach the point of weariness, I want you to increase your quality time spent with Me.  I want you to wait silently in My presence, and be expectant to hear My voice.  I have words of encouragement to give you.

My promise is that if you wait upon Me, you will become like an eagle. An eagle waits for the wind and then glides on top of the wind. When you wait upon Me, you will run and not become weary because the wind of My Holy Spirit will infuse you with My joy and My joy will give you strength.

GALATIANS 6:9; ISAIAH 40:31

ASSIGMENTS

Remember when you were in school, and your teacher gave you homework assignments.  How well you did on your final grade often depended upon your faithfulness to complete your homework assignments.

You now are in the school of life.  My Holy Spirit is your teacher and guide throughout your life.  He has kingdom assignments for you to do daily.  My desire is that you complete those assignments.

I will not count it against you if you fail to complete your kingdom assignments, but you will miss the joy that comes when you see others blessed when you fulfill your assignments. Today, ask the Holy Spirit to help you to complete your assignments.  I have sent My Spirit to be your helper.

JOHN 16:13

Monday, July 29, 2019

ANXIOUS

You live in an age when many people are anxious.  They are anxious about their finances, the weather, their families, their nation, and many other things.

My disciples had many opportunities to be anxious. Think about how anxious My disciples were just after I died on the tree.  They had no idea what their future would hold without Me.

I gave them three exhortations that would insure them that My joy would remain in them, and that their joy would be full. The exhortations I gave them at My last Passover with them were: Abide in Me; Abide in My Word; Abide in My love.  When you do these three things, you also will have no reason to be anxious.

JOHN 15; PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7

Sunday, July 28, 2019

BIRTHDAYS

There was great rejoicing in heaven when you were born, and the angels also rejoiced when you were born again.  You had a fresh start on both birthdays.

When you enter the next your of  your life after your birthday, I want you to remember that your life is hid with Me in My Father's heart.

You have an opportunity in the year following your birthday to enjoy being a co-laborer with Me as we work together in My kingdom on earth.  Also remember that I am working within you both to will and to do of My good pleasure.

COLOSSIANS 3:3; PHILIPPIANS 2:13

NEWS

Not many people like to hear or watch old news.  Everyday new reports are conveyed to millions.
There are reports, however, that never grow old.

When you read your Bible, you are reading reports and stories that happened centuries ago, but those stories of old all have modern day applications.  When you look at the character traits of My disciples, I am sure you can recognize some of those character traits in yourself.

When you read your Bible daily, I want you to envision yourself in the scenes.  I want  you the read the Psalms and Proverbs out loud to yourself and then ask My Spirit to show you how you can apply those principles to your own life.  My Word is living and powerful.  It is sharper than any two edged sword, and it can give you discernment about what thoughts come from Me, your flesh, or the devil.

HEBREWS 4:12

Friday, July 26, 2019

ALLOW

Many ask the question, "Why did I allow something tragic to happen in their lives?"  I said, "In the world you will have tribulations, but be of god cheer, I have overcome the world." The story you heard recently explains one reason why there is tribulation in the world. The story begins:

"A barber was walking down the street with a pastor.  The barber asked the pastor, "How can a loving God allow such evil in the world?"  About that time, they passed a man whose hair and beard were tangled and dirty.  

The pastor asked the barber, "How can you allow a man who is so unkempt to walk on the streets?"  The barber replied, "It is not my fault.  That man never sat in my barber chair."  The pastor replied, "Many people have never sat in God's presence or even know there is a God."  Evil exists in the hearts of those who have never come to Me for salvation.

JOHN 16:33

WALLS

Walls usually serve two purposes: Outside walls are designed to keep people out, and interior walls are used to separate rooms.

Sometimes you will encounter emotional walls that people have placed between themselves and others.  Such walls serve as a protection against emotional pain and hurt.  I came to heal those who have been bruised by others.

Emotional wounds can only be healed completely by Me.  I came to heal those who are broken hearted because of rejection or physical, mental, or emotional abuse.  Pray for and also share My love with those you know who have withdrawn themselves from others because of such wounds.

ISAIAH 61:1

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

IMAGINATION

I created the imagination to help you visualize My throne room, and the beauty of heaven when you worship Me.  Today, My enemy is trying  to capture the imaginations of even small children through television and computer games.

My enemy is constantly sending images into the minds of  many, and often those images become strongholds in their lives.

Paul exhorted those who believe in Me to pull down vain imaginations and every high thought that exalts itself against Me. I want you to guard the eye gates and ear gates to your mind daily.  It is what you see and what you hear that will influence your imagination.

2 CORINTHIANS 10:5-7

Tuesday, July 23, 2019

PRISON

I came to open prison doors and to set the captives free.  I came to set at liberty those who have been bruised.

There are many who are locked in an emotional prison, and they do not know how to get out.  That prison is unforgiveness.  When I said that "I am the way," I was saying that I am the way to escape all emotional prisons.

When you are unable to forgive God, yourself, or your circumstances, you are in prison. When I said, "I am the door," I was saying that I opened the door for you to forgive all those who have wronged and hurt you.  Are you willing to forgive?  If  you are, you can begin today by asking Me to help you to forgive.

ISAIAH 61:1; JOHN 10:9

Monday, July 22, 2019

CARES

Most people long for freedom from health cares, emotional cares, family cares, and many other cares.  I came to set you free from the cares of this world.

Today, I want  you to cast every one of your cares upon Me.  I am truly your care taker, but I cannot be in that position unless you release your cares to Me.

Maybe you feel that you just cannot release certain cares to Me, because you doubt that I can do anything about such cares.  Two things are needed in order for you to release every care to Me.  First you must humble yourself and realize that you alone cannot take care of those cares.  Second, trust Me as your "Good Shepherd," Who will perfect everything that is a concern to you.

1 PETER 5:6-7; PSALM 138:8; PSALM 23

KEYS

Some people ask the question, "If God is so powerful, then why doesn't he get rid of the devil?"  The devil did come to steal, kill, and destroy.

I am all powerful, and I am sovereign.  The devil gained some legal rights against mankind when Adam and Eve sinned.  However, My Father dealt with the devil when I died on the cross to forgive and save mankind from their sins.

When I said, "It is finished" as I was dying, the work to destroy the works of the devil was finished. The devil and his demons still exist, but you now have the weapons of warfare through My name and My blood to bind wicked spirits and send them to Me.  I gave you the keys to the kingdom  (whatsoever you bind on earth is bound and whatsoever you loose on earth is loosed in heaven. Use those keys today.

JOHM 19:13; MATTHEW 16:19

Thursday, July 18, 2019

FORBEARANCE

My friend Paul wrote about forbearance.  As a believer, you are called to forbear with one another in love.  What does this mean?

When you forbear in love, you are willing to overlook the faults of others.  A good way to develop forbearance in your life is to ask Me to help you see others as I see them.  This will help you to not judge others or criticize them.

So often, especially with a marriage partner, you tend to see the faults of your spouse.  Love covers a multitude of sins.  I want to challenge you to forbear with the peculiarities that people have.  Everyone is unique, but never forget that they are also treasures to Me.

EPHESIANS 4:1-2

Wednesday, July 17, 2019

SKY

The next time you look at the night sky and see the various constellations, I want you to look at them carefully.  My Word says that the heavens declare My glory, and they also declare My story.

I know you have asked many times, "Where is heaven?"  Paul speaks of a man who traveled to the third heaven.  I dwell in the third heaven.  The first heaven is the blue sky you see daily.

My enemy dwells in the second heaven, and also in the atmosphere around you.  No one likes to think that there are spiritual beings observing what they do and listening in on what they say.  However, My Word confirms that this is true. Your prayers are able to penetrate both heavens and enter My throne room in the third heaven.  Pierce the darkness of the second heaven today by declaring My Word as you pray.

PSALM 97:6; 103:11, 20; 2 C0RINTHIANS 12:2

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

SEARCH

So many search and search to find the answers to their problems, and they usually become frustrated because their search fails to provide the answers.

When I said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life," I was declaring that you need search no longer if you make the decision to come to Me.  I am the way that all of  your problems can be solved.  It is through the truths that you find in My Word that you will find an answer to every problem you are
experiencing.

Real abundant, fulfilling life can only come through Me.  In fact, when you acknowledge Me as your Lord and Savior, My life comes within you and you enter My kingdom of righteousness, peace, and joy.  Give every problem to Me today.  I not only have the answers, but I also will show you the way out.

JOHN 14:6

Monday, July 15, 2019

COMMUNITY

It is so important that you experience community.  You need people around you who know Me, and also people who have not yet come to know Me in a personal way.

I had both believers and unbelievers who surrounded Me.  I had my intimate group of 12 who accompanied Me in My travels.  I was discipling them.  This is a pattern that I want you also to follow.

There are many single people who have no children to disciple, but if these single people are intentional, they can find many to disciple.  Watching My disciples grow in the Spirit gave Me great joy. Find someone you can disciple, and you will also receive great joy.

PSALM 68:6; 107:41


Sunday, July 14, 2019

BROKEN HEARTS

I came to heal the broken hearts and liberate those who are bound. Healing the hearts is something that only I can do.  However, I use people in My body on Earth to assist Me as I heal hearts.

The process of healing hearts includes healing hurts and removing guilt, fears, shame and other wounds in the soul. I have chosen some in My body to be nurses in the Spirit who deliver the surgical tools I use in this surgical process.

These nurses in the Spirit listen carefully to My voice and are able to relay what they hear to those who have been willing to have their hearts healed.  Often, habits and strongholds in the flesh need to be cut away. A surgeon's knife is two edged and My spoken Word is the two edged sword that can cut away fleshly bondages and hurtful memories in the soul.  Pray for people you know who need their hearts to be healed and also pray for the nurses in the Spirit Who are called to assist Me.

ISAIAH 61:1; HEBREWS 4:12

Friday, July 12, 2019

OBEY

Some parents want their children to have instant obedience.  When a child does something that is not acceptable, the parents will give one warning. If the child does the same thing again, the child is punished.

I want you to praise Me today because one of My main characteristics is long suffering.  I am willing to give you a chance to repent more than one time when you disobey Me.  I am a God of justice, but I also am a God of great mercy and grace.

I want you to obey Me simply because you love Me.  I do not want you to obey Me out of fear.  My perfect love casts out all fear.  You are My precious child, and I will always hold out My arms to receive you when you return to Me with a repentant heart.

1 JOHN 4:18

Thursday, July 11, 2019

FRIENDS

The day came when I told My disciples that I would no longer call them My servants, but I would call them My friends.  After they had been tested in their obedience to keep My commandments,, they entered a new phase in their relationship with Me.

My disciples learned to communicate with Me without pretense.  Earlier when they walked with Me, they wanted to impress Me with their dedication to Me. However, the day came when they just enjoyed walking with Me day by day.

I want you to never obey Me out of duty or out of a desire to impress Me.  I want you to enjoy My presence with you daily.  I am your friend, but never forget that I created all things. That includes you. This truth should cause you to stand in awe of Me and to revere Me.

JOHN 15:14-15; COLOSSIANS 1:16

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

YESTERDAY

I want you to live in the present day by day.  What can you do about what has happened in the past?  You certainly cannot undo people's actions.  However, you can forgive those who have wronged and hurt you in the past.

I want every day you live to be a fresh start.   Come to Me in the morning and confess anything you need to confess and receive My cleansing.  I have already forgiven you.

Faith can only work in the present.  Call upon My Holy Spirit to lead and guide you throughout the day.  He will then be able to tell you the next thing to do.  Living in the Spirit means doing the next thing by faith.  Your day will unfold effortlessly and will be fruitful as you yield to My Spirit moment by moment.

HEBREWS 11:1

Tuesday, July 9, 2019

BREEZE

There is nothing more welcome on a hot summer day than a cool breeze. That small moment of relief is all you need to carry on with your activities during the day.

There is another breeze that I want you to enjoy every morning.  That is the gentle breeze that My Holy Spirit provides to refresh you when you spend time in My presence.

At Pentecost My Spirit was manifested like a mighty wind.  When you get to heaven, you will feel the gentle breeze of My Spirit with you always.  Why wait until you get to heaven?  Enjoy the fresh anointing of My Spirit that comes with that gentle breeze every morning before you begin the activities of the day.

ACTS 2

PLEASURES

The word, "pleasures," is a word that everyone loves to hear.  Even the word is pleasant to our ears.  There are many ways that people have chosen to pleasure themselves.  During the summer time,
many go on vacations to enjoy the pleasures of getting away from the routines of life.

Few people, however, understand where they can discover pleasures that last for all eternity.  I have promised that when you spend time in My presence, I offer you pleasures for evermore.

When you desire to walk in My ways, I can show you the path of life.  My right hand will hold you on that path of life, and the pleasures that you will encounter are My joy, peace, and right standing with Me.

PSALM 16:11




Friday, July 5, 2019

STORIES

The early part of My Word was passed orally from one generation to the next.  Then Moses recorded those true stories.  When I was on Earth, I told many stories.  Most of those stories were in parable form to illustrate My teaching.

I want you to become a story teller.  When you relay My Word in story form and are careful to include the content correctly, people will listen.

I also want to challenge you to write those stories in a form that can be passed from generation to generation.  Relay My mighty acts to in your own life to others, and you can begin this project today. Remember that you can overcome Satan by testifying about My blood and by your own testimony.

REVELATION 12:11

STIMULATION

I created your five senses to receive the stimulating sounds of the waves as they crash against the shore, the stimulating beauty of a starlit night, the stimulating smell of fresh mowed grass, and the stimulating tastes of delicious food.

The age you live offers a multitude of activities that will satiate your thirst to fill your five senses,  and often those activities will draw you away from My beauty and the beauty of the world I created.

One of the main weapons My enemy uses to seduce you is distractiion.  Do not love the things of this world.  Instead, set your affections on the things above.  I have peace and love to offer you as you spend time with Me.  Take time to receive those gifts from Me and allow Me to fill your senses.

COLOSSIANS 3:2

Friday, June 28, 2019

RAISE

I told My disciples that on the third day I would be raised from the dead.  At that time, they could not comprehend what I was saying.

The same resurrection power that raised Me from the dead is able to life you spiritually today.  I am the resurrection and the life and I have sent My Holy Spirit to raise you when you feel down in your spirit.

Today ask for that same resurrection power if you are feeling down and dry.   My servant David lifted  up His soul to Me.  I want you to do this also.  When you do, all heaviness will leave you.

MATTHEW 16:21; ROMANS 8:11; PSALM 86:4

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

AHEAD

I have heard people use this phrase, "I just want to be ahead of the game."  They are saying that they want to have everything in order before an event like a vacation or a work project is completed..  To be ahead of the game, you have to review all of your plans and also imagine what the finish of those plans will look like.

I want you to be "ahead of the game" spiritually.  There are no short cuts for you to understand what the future holds for you.  My Word reveals what everyone's future will be.  There is a designated design for everyone on this Earth. However, few know what that design is.

When you study My Word and obey My Word, you will always be ahead of the game.  Today, spend time in My Word and discover that I have plans for you for good, not for evil, to give you a purpose and a hope and an expected end.

JEREMIAH 29:11

WAY

Before you had the latest technical aids to give you the exact roads to take to reach your destination, you often lost your way.

There is a road that I want you to travel daily, and you do not need directions to find that road.  Every day you have the opportunity to travel this road and when you do, you will enjoy the journey.

That road is called the Faith Highway.  When you climb into the vehicle called "Prayer," you can begin your journey into My throne room in heaven.  This highway is paved with a substance called "Hope." You will never have a rough ride if you put all of your faith and hope in Me and My Word.

HEBREWS 11:1



Sunday, June 23, 2019

RETREAT

The many retreats that you have enjoyed are times of refreshing and spiritual growth.  Retreats offer you the opportunity to spend quality time with Me.  Some consider this time a chance to forget the problems of the world.

In the world you will have tribulation.  This is one of My promises, but I do want you to always be of good cheer because I have overcome the world.

When you return from retreats, do not forget to pray for those in the world who do not know Me.  Intercede for the leaders in your church and nation and minister to those in need.  I never escaped from the world.  On the contrary, I faced the world with all of its problems, and I always met the needs of the people.

JOHN 16:33; 1 TIMOTHY 1-2

RECREATION

Recreation is helpful to keep you in good physical condition.  Look at the word carefully:"re-creation." Most everyone enjoys recreation times, but few understand that bodily exercise profits little.

I want you daily to enjoy a different type of recreation.  You are a spirit. You have a soul (mind, will, and emotions) and you live in a body.  The condition of your entire well being does not just depend upon physical recreation.

Daily, I want you to lift your soul up to Me, and allow Me to minister My love to you.  When you do this, I can-re-create the joy you first had when you were saved.  Also feed yourself with the bread of life, My Word, and then I can re-create the thought patterns in your life so that your thoughts will exalt Me instead of the things of this world.

1 TIMOTHY 4:8;  1 THESSALONIANS 5:23

APPOINTMENTS

I know how frustrated you become when you miss an appointment.  You just cannot believe that there was such a mix up in the calendar that you keep.

There is one appointment, however, that you will surely keep, and there will be no mix up on My calendar.  That appointment is written in My "Book of Life".  The writer of Hebrews said that it is appointed unto man, once to die and then the judgment. (Hebrews 9:27).

David, the Psalmist, wrote that "all the members of his body were written in the "Book of Life." I know your days, and I know the exact time that it is appointed for you to die.  Until then keep working to further My kingdom on Earth.

HEBREWS 9:27; PSALM 139

SHOWERS

I  have heard people sing a song about showers of blessings.  It is always My desire to send blessings your way.

Today and everyday I want you to expect Me to bless you. Often you miss the small ways I bless you because your mind is absorbed with earthly things.

When you set your affections on the things above rather than the things on Earth, you will be aware of even the small ways I bless you.  During this season of summer showers, think about My blessings that are being poured upon you daily.

COLOSSIANS 3:2

SOUNDS

I know how you love the sounds of the summer.  The tree frogs and many other creatures form a harmonic symphony.  Every season I created has distinct sounds like the crushing sound of leaves as you walk in Fall woods.

The sounds you hear on Earth do not compare to the sounds in heaven.  When your mother visited Me in heaven, she first heard bells announcing her visit and then she heard beautiful music like she never heard before.

It was not your mother's time yet to be with Me in heaven, and I am so glad she lived four more years.Never forget what I told her to tell the people on Earth.  I told her, "Tell the people that prayer is very important."  Remember that prayer breaks bondages and ushers in My Holy Spirit. Pray unceasingly.

WRAP

I know you are experiencing hot weather this summer, and you usually do not need to take a wrap as you leave your home.  However, there is something that I want you to wrap yourself in daily no matter what is the weather.

I want you to wrap yourself in My love and in Me.  You wrap yourself in My love when you spend time in My presence and allow Me to speak or sing My love songs to you.

You wrap yourself in Me when you abide in My presence all the day long.  This simply means that you communicate with Me throughout your day and are aware of My presence with you. Doing this daily will help you to never feel abandoned, rejected, or alone.

JOHN 15:4,10

WATCH

I exhorted My disciples to watch and pray.  These two instructions are what I want you to follow today.  Watch for My second coming, but also watch out for My enemy because he knows that his time is short.

I am sure that you have noticed how many in My body on Earth are under attack.  More than ever, you need to watch out for the subtle strategies of My enemy to destroy My kingdom on Earth.

I also want you to fast and pray more as the days draw closer to My second coming. One of the strategies of My enemy is to divide and conquer.  The spirit of antichrist has the assignment to cause division in nations, homes, churches, and friends. Resist this spirit by praying spiritual warfare prayers based on Matthew 18:18.

MATTHEW 25:13, 26:41; 1 JOHN 2:18; 1 JOHN 2:22, 4:3

ADOPTION

When you accepted Me as your Lord and Savior, you became a member of My family. That family includes My Heavenly Father, Who loved you so much that He sent Me to Earth to forgive all of your sins (past, present, and future).

I am Lord of all, but I also can be like an elder brother to you.  My Spirit is like a mother to you because He is the comforter and the great teacher Who helps you understand My Word.

I chose to adopt you.  You will always be in My family.  Many people on Earth have never known their earthly fathers and others have been abandoned by their mothers.  I came to heal such people from their broken hearts.  Pray that such people will enter My family as you did.

ROMANS 8 :15

VALUE

What do you value the most?  When you look at your checkbook, you will discover what you value the most?

When you give generously to the poor, to further My Kingdom, to help others in distress, and to purchase things for your home and children that will make life more pleasant, you are valuing what is important to Me.

You are of highest value to Me.  When you see others also of great value, you then have My heart.  My Father expressed what He values the most when He was willing to offer Me as the perfect sacrifice to save mankind from sin.  God so loved the world, that He gave Me to redeem you from sin.  Never doubt your value.

JOHN 3:16-18

Thursday, June 13, 2019

PLANS

I have heard people say, "When man makes his plans, God laughs."  My Father would never laugh at you if you are desiring in your heart to trust and obey Him.  However, the plans of mankind often fall short of the glorious plan that I have for them.

At the end of time, your works will be judged.  My Father has works for you to do that were designed even from the foundation of the Earth.  His plans have always been for your good, not for evil, to give you a purpose and a hope in life and an expected end.

Today, pray that you will fall short in no good work that I have planned for you. Pray that you will be on the same page in your "Book of Life" that I have written.  My Father knows the rest of the story, and as you seek to do My will, He will empower you by My Spirit to accomplish those works.

EPHESIANS 2:20; JEREMIAH 29:11

Wednesday, June 12, 2019

FORGET

As you walk with My Spirit through the gospel accounts  of My life on Earth, you will soon discover how forgetful My disciples were.  Most of them forgot what I told them about My soon coming death.  They remembered those things I said after I came to them in My resurrected form.

There are some things in life that I want you to forget, and there are things in life that I never want you to forget.  I want you to forget past hurts.  The only way to do this is to forgive the person who hurt you.  Holding on to hurt will damage you physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Give Me your past hurts and forgive those who have wounded you.  There is something that I want you never to forget and that is how much I love you.  It is My love that will help you forgive others.

MATTHEW 16:21; EPHESIANS 4:32

Tuesday, June 11, 2019

DELAY

Sometimes you may delay doing the things you dread.  You put off accomplishing works that you do not enjoy doing.  You question, "Why do today what I can wait to do until tomorrow?"

I never want you to delay in making things right with someone you have offended.  My Word says clearly that if you remember that someone has ought against you, do not even leave an offering, but go your way and be reconciled to this person.  Then you will be free to give your offering.

When you delay going to the person who has ought against you, that person could remain angry with you and thereby give place to the devil.  The devil is just waiting to give more negative, accusatory thoughts about you to the one you offended.  A root of bitterness could even develop in the one you offended.  Do not delay.  Go with an attitude of humility to that person and ask forgiveness for the offense.

MATTHEW 5:23-24; EPHESIANS 4:26-27

MINUTES

As you grow older the minutes begin to fly.  Everyday is important in My kingdom no matter what age you may be.  I came to redeem the world of sin, but I also can redeem the minutes that you spend with Me.

Minutes spent in My presence will give you the anointing and  the energy to get through the day no matter what the day may offer to you.  I do know what your day will offer, so you can trust Me with every minute of the day.

I can redeem whatever time you spend with Me, and I can organize your day in such a way that you will always accomplish the works that are written in your "Book of Life."  You have probably heard the saying, "Inch by inch is a cinch, but mile by mile will take awhile."  Commit your works to Me, and at the end of the day, you will rejoice over My faithfulness to accomplish My will in your life.

PROVERBS 16:3


Sunday, June 9, 2019

KINDNESS

My Father revealed His kindness towards all mankind when He sent Me to redeem the world from sin. My Father's kindness was also revealed to mankind by what I did and said while I walked on Earth.

People in your age do "random acts of kindness."  The acts I did while I walked on Earth were not random.  They were orchestrated by My Father.  I did only the things My Father told Me to do and I only said the things I heard My Father said.

You have the opportunity daily to be kind to others. As you listen carefully to the promptings of My Spirit, you can reveal My kindness towards others. Look for those divine appointments today.

EPHESIANS 2:4-10; JOHN 5:20, 30, 36

JOURNALING

Taking time to record your thoughts and your activities in a day's time is valuable.  Also recording the prayers that you prayed and the answers you have received is rewarding.

When you look back over the years as you read your journals, you can relive those days and also see how My hand was upon your life in many ways.  You will see the divine appointments I arranged for you, and the way I saw you thru many trials.

The Bible is a journal of My activtity in the lives of many people.  It was written not to just inform, but also to inspire you to see how I always fulfilled My promises to people.  Today, think about the promises I fulfilled in your life, and spend time thanking Me for seeing you through so many difficult trials.

2 TIMOTHY 3:16

Tuesday, June 4, 2019

CONSTANT

You live in an age when there is constant change.  Just when you think you have the latest model of a certain product, that product soon becomes outdated. 

Life was simple when I lived on Earth.  Even the food we ate  was not varied.  When I fed the 4,000 and the 5,000, the food that was multiplied was the same - bread and fish. 

You may ask, "Is there anything in this life that is constant and will never change?"  You can count on My love for you to always be the same.  My love for you is everlasting.

2 THESSALONIANS 2:16

Monday, June 3, 2019

HEART

People often question, "What is the heart?"  My commandment was given to love Me with all your heart.  The heart of man is the very core of his being,  It is the inner man, and this is the part of you that I want My Spirit to invade.

It is impossible for you to love like I love without a holy invasion of My Spirit.  Paul wrote that My Holy Spirit is able to fill your heart with My love..

I understand that there are difficult people in your life who are hard to love.  Today pray and ask My Holy Spirit to invade your heart with My love, and you then will be able to transmit My love to even those who are difficult to love.

ROMANS 5:5

Saturday, June 1, 2019

REPEAT

When people have a hearing problem, they usually have to ask the one speaking to them to repeat what was said to them.  You do not have to repeat what you say to Me in prayer.

David, the psalmist, wrote: "I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears."

Whenever you cry out to Me, I hear you, and I answer.  Daniel cried out to Me, and I heard him the first day he began to pray, I heard him, but his answer was delayed because there was warfare in the spirit realm.  The next time you pray, have total confidence that I hear you the very first time you offer your prayer to Me.

PSALM 34:4; DANIEL 10:12

Friday, May 31, 2019

ADVANCE

When an army is in a battle, the officers in charge are the ones to give the orders to advance or retreat.  The orders to retreat are only given when the enemy  is advancing at such a fast pace, that the troops battling the enemy have to retreat.

You are in a battle, and as the days draw closer to My return, My enemy's goal will be to stop your spiritual progress.  I have given you all the weapons you need to overcome the enemy.

I want you to always keep advancing no matter how fierce the battle gets.  Keep advancing.  The plowman never looks back. He keeps sowing the seed.  Keep sowing My Word and I will win the battle for you.  The battle is mine and the victory is yours.

AMOS 9:13

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

ABUNDANT

I came that you might have life and have it more abundantly. The abundance that I promised has everything to do with my kingdom on Earth.

My kingdom on Earth is not meat and drink. Instead it is My righteousness, My peace, and the joy that comes from My Holy Spirit. I exhorted My followers to seek My righteousness and My kingdom first.

When  you seek My kingdom first, then the abundance of everything that you need daily will come.  This includes what you will eat, what you will drink, and what you will wear.  These material things will be supplied if you put Me first in your life.

JOHN 10: 10; MATTHEW 6:33; ROMANS 14:17

Tuesday, May 28, 2019

SCHEDULE

Scheduling your day always takes some thought.  I want you to not just schedule your quiet time with Me in the morning, but I desire for you also to keep asking Me what is the next thing that I have to do.

I do have works for you to accomplish in a day's time and also divine appointments that I want you to keep. 

Keep asking me to speak to your heart the next thing to do, and you will be amazed at the end of the day what I have accomplished through you.  Fruitfulness in My kingdom will result when you follow this mode of operation.

PSALM 37:5; PROVERBS 16:3


Saturday, May 25, 2019

PRIME

Prime time in your age means that orders of merchandise will be delivered the next day or soon thereafter.  There was no prime time when I walked on Earth.  Transportation was limited, and most everyone except the very rich traveled on foot.

It was on one of those occasions after a long walk with My disciples to the upper room that I washed the disciples dusty feet. I told My disciples then that soon I no longer would be with them.  They did not understand what I said.

That evening, I promised My disciples that I would return and take them to the place I had prepared for them.  Ever since I made that declaration, people have been looking for that prime time when I will return.  Only My Father knows this time, but I want you to be always ready for that prime time.

JOHN 14:1-6

Friday, May 24, 2019

PURPOSE

It is important to know your purpose in life.  You were born on this Earth to glorify Me.  This means that you have opportunities daily to manifest My presence to others.

You will be able to glorify Me (make My presence known) by what you say.  When you hide My Word in your heart, you will be able to sow My words into the lives of others.

You will be able to glorify Me (make My presence known) by what you do when you daily commit your works and your way to Me. I do have divine appointments for  you daily, but you have to be listening to My Spirit so that you can be led to be at the right time and place to make those appointments.  Those appointments might just involve a telephone call.  Pray to glorify Me in word and deed today.

PSALM 119:11, PSALM 37:5; PROVERBS 16:3

MULTIPLE

You have probably taken many multiple choice tests in your lifetime.  When you look at the choices, you have to remember what you read, the notes you took, and what you studied in order to find the correct answer.

Every day when you awaken you have choices to make.  Will you go to the store now or later?  What will you have for dinner tonight?  What can you choose to leave off  your "To Do List?" and save for another day.

The most important choice you can make in your lifetime is to choose to believe and trust in Me as your Lord and Savior.  The day will come when you no longer can make that choice.  The day will come when every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that I am Lord.  On that day it will be too late to choose.  Choose you this day whom you will serve.

PHILIPPIANS 2:10-11; JOSHUA 24:15

LOSS

It is so easy to loose something in the present day that you live.  There are so many material things to care for.  Life was not cluttered when I walked on Earth. I did speak a parable about the woman who had ten pieces of silver and lost one piece.  She diligently searched to find it.  When she found it, she told all of her friends and rejoiced.

It is frustrating to loose something. Material things do have value, but you are much more valuable to Me than any material thing this Earth can offer.

Even though I did not lose many material things when I was on Earth, I suffered the loss of almost all of My disciples when I was arrested.  What joy I had when our fellowship was restored.  I long for you to always be in fellowship with Me.  When something blocks our times together, I do feel loss.

LUKE 15:8-9


Tuesday, May 21, 2019

WEAPONS

The weapons we use against the enemy are not carnal, but they are mighty through Me to pull down strongholds.  Those weapons are My name, My blood, the keys to the kingdom to bind and loose, My full armor, My Word and prayers that are inspired by My Spirit.

The main weapon of My enemy is deception.  He is the Father of lies, and it is impossible for him to tell the truth.  He is also the accuser of the brethren.  He uses the mouths of many to slander and accuse.

When you are dressed in My armor and you use My Word spoken out loud as the sword against My enemy, no weapon formed against you will prosper because your righteousness is of Me.

2 CORINTHIANS 10:3-6; ISAIAH 54:17

CLEANING

Summer is almost here, and many people have finished their spring cleaning.  I did not have to concern myself with cleaning My dwellings because often I slept under the stars with My disciples.

Life was simple when I lived on Earth. However, there are always things that need cleaning.  The Psalmist David prayed, "Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.  Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow."

David prayed this prayer after he committed murder and adultery.  I have forgiven you of all of your sins (past, present, and future).  Daily, however, allow My Spirit to search your heart and unveil anything that you need to confess to Me.  Confession opens the door for you to be aware of your own sin and places you in the position to experience the cleansing power of My blood.

PSALM 51:2, 7, 10

MUSIC

Shortly after your mother had her stroke, she visited heaven. The first thing she heard was beautiful music.  Her speech was not affected by the stroke, so she was able to relay to you and your family exactly what she heard and saw.

The beauty of the music in heaven is beyond anything that you could ever imagine.  She also heard bells ringing.  They were announcing her entrance into heaven.  She saw Me holding her "Lamb's Book of Life."

I greeted her with these words, "Frances, you are precious, but it is not your time. Go back and tell the people that prayer is very important and that the number 13 is important. Just recently you had the revelation of why the number 13 is important.  Seven is the number for God, and it means complete.
Six is the number for mankind.  The number 13 is my special number.  I am both God and man.

REVELATION 21:7

Saturday, May 18, 2019

HEAVEN

I have heard people ask if anyone is able to experience heaven on Earth.  Believe it or not, I have made provision for My beloved to experience this.

Paul wrote about this when he said, "But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, has made us alive together with Christ, (by grace you are saved;) and has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus."

When you remember that you are seated in Me in heavenly places,  no matter what comes against you on Earth, you are above every circumstance and you can experience heaven on Earth.  In heaven there are no worries or cares.  When you know your position in Me, worries and cares will no longer burden you.

EPHESIANS 2:4-6

Thursday, May 16, 2019

EAT

I have heard this expression in your age: "You are what you eat."  This expression conveys exactly what I was speaking to My disciples. I told them that except they eat My flesh and drink My blood, they would have no life in them.

I am the living bread that came down from heaven.  When you abide in Me and in My Word, you partake of My life within you. I willingly shed My blood to forgive you of all your sins, and it is My blood that makes it possible for you to have eternal life.

Thank Me today for the provision I supplied to give you both eternal life and abundant life.

JOHN 6:51-55


Wednesday, May 15, 2019

MISUNDERSTANDING

Face to face communication is so important because even a person's body language reveals the emotional condition of the person who is speaking.  When I lived on Earth, I always had face to face conversations with those I ministered to when I walked around the Galilee and taught in many Synagogues. 

Your present age seems to have many substitutes for conversations.  People converse over their computers, and this can lead to misunderstandings.

I challenge you to pray and ask Me to give you understanding when you engage in conversations that are not face to face,  Seek to clear any misunderstandings quickly so that offenses can be cleared before either party is subject to an unforgiving spirit that leads to a root of bitterness.

EPHESIANS 4:21; HEBREWS 12:15


Tuesday, May 14, 2019

INTRICATE

I know every intricate detail of your life.  If this knowledge makes you uncomfortable, let Me put your mind at ease.  There may be details of your life that you would rather not share with anyone.
However, I want you to feel free to come to Me with those details.

I know your heart.  In fact, I even know what motivates you to do certain things. I know all the weaknesses you have in your flesh.  I want you to come to Me with the areas of your life where you feel insufficient.

I am your sufficiency. As you share whatever troubles your heart with Me, I will then be able to help you win the victory over fleshly habits that you have tried to brake for years.  I am able to make all grace abound to you having all sufficiency in all things so that you may abound to every good work.

2 CORINTHIANS 2:8

Monday, May 13, 2019

LIFTED

I said that if I be lifted up from the Earth, I will draw all men unto Me. I was referring to the time when I would be crucified. I told My disciples earlier that even as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness that I also would be lifted up.

The brass serpent on the pole that Moses lifted up formed a cross.  Those who lifted their eyes to view the brass serpent were healed of their snake bites.

I commission you to lift your eyes up daily to Me as you praise and worship Me.  Satan, that wicked serpent, will have no power to harm you when you keep your eyes focused on Me.

JOHN 3:14; 12:32

Saturday, May 11, 2019

WEIGH

I weigh the actions of those on Earth.  I not only observe the actions of people, but I also know their motives.  At the end of time I will judge everyone (wicked and just).  Those who believe in Me will be judged for reward, and those who have not received Me will be judged for condemnation.

When you understand the importance of your actions on Earth, you should be challenged to walk in faith and in My Spirit instead of the flesh.

Only those actions that are done through My Spirit within you will be able to pass the final test when I judge you for reward.  Make sure your motivations are pure.  Ask My Spirit to purify your heart motives daily.

1 SAMUEL 2:3

Friday, May 10, 2019

BREATH

I want you to take time daily to just sit down, stay silent, and deep breathe in My Holy Spirit.  My Holy Spirit is the breath of God.  When My followers were gathered in the upper room during Pentecost, My Spirit invaded them like a mighty wind.

You have the Holy Spirit within you to lead and guide you into all truth and to bring to your remembrance all I ever said.  My Spirit, however, is omnipresent just as My Father is omnipresent. I am also present with you always.

When you take time to just breathe in My Spirit, you will be aware of My presence with you, and you will also have the energy and anointing to continue your day.

ACTS 2:1-4; JOHN 14:16,26

INTENSE

You live in intense times.  My enemy is seeking to divide your country, your families, and destroy your faith.  You are experiencing now what I termed the beginning of sorrows which will lead to My soon coming to receive My beloved to heaven.

Give Me praise today that you are not appointed to wrath.  Surely I will come to receive those who believe in Me before My enemy unleashes all of his forces against those in the world.

I want you to draw near to Me daily during these intense times.  Be ready also to share My gospel with those you meet during a day's time.  My desire is that none perish, but that all come to repentance.  Even in these intense times, you can receive My peace which passes your understanding and My joy which will give you strength to face every day victoriously.

THIRST

When I cried out, "I thirst," on that fateful day I was crucified, I was not just thirsting for water.  I was thirsting for the fellowship I so enjoyed with My followers.

I knew that My death and resurrection would open the door for many to be with Me eternally, but I longed for the comfort of My followers.  Only My mother, her sister, Mary, Mary Magdalene,. and John were at My feet. All of the disciples I chose except for John had abandoned Me.  I felt a loneliness then that is past explaining.

I had to experience loneliness and abandonment in order to identify with all those who feel lonely and abandoned. Today pray for the many throughout the earth who are thirsting for someone to comfort and love them.  You may know of someone like that today.  Reach out to them.

JOHN 19:25-28


Tuesday, May 7, 2019

IMPULSE

It is human nature to be impulsive.  As you study My Word, you will discover that many of My beloved patriarchs did not inquire of Me, but instead acted upon impulse.  The results caused disasters that lasted for generations and even until this day.

Abraham on impulse gave into Sarai's desire to have a child and married and gave seed to Hagar, her Egyptian handmaiden.  Today you see the results of that impulsive move by Abraham.  Ishmael was born out of that union between Hagar and Abraham.  Today the world is still  experiencing the Arab/Israel conflict.

Guard your heart and your tongue with all diligence so that you do not react or act impulsively. Instead, wait upon Me, and allow My Spirit to direct you instead of your flesh.

GENESIS 16; PROVEBS 4:23

ENTERTAINMENT

When I walked on Earth, My main entertainment times were during the Feast times in Jerusalem.  My family always looked forward to those times because we would be together to celebrate these special feasts that My Father designed.

My Father enjoyed seeing our family travel together to Jerusalem from Galilee.  My parents were returning from the Feast of Passover when they discovered that I was not with them. They finally found Me in the Temple where I was listening and asking the teachers questions.   I was only twelve.

The miracles I performed were a form of entertainment for some people.  Herod wanted to see Me and hoped that I would do some miracles in his presence.  I am not in the entertainment business, but when you spend time in My presence you will have joy and pleasures forever more.

LUKE 2:42-51, 23:8; PSALM 16:11

Sunday, May 5, 2019

SOLID

There is something comforting about the word, "solid."  When you have a solid relationship with someone, this means that nothing will separate you from one another.  When you build a home, you want to have a solid foundation.

I am your solid foundation that your spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical life can be built upon.   However, in order for you to enjoy the abundant life I have promised you, it is necessary for you to surrender your will to Me.

The soulish part of you that is called the "flesh" will daily fight against this surrender. However, when you surrender your day, your way, your works, your family,  your soul and spirit into My hands everyday, your relationship with Me will be solid, and you will enjoy My joy and peace all the day long.

LUKE 6:47-48

SING

It is so wonderful now to hear My creatures praising Me at sunrise and sunset.  The birds sing the loudest at sunrise and sunset.  Now you can hear the sounds of summer at night.  The tree frogs and crickets are also praising Me.

The trees clap their hands in praise.  I commission you to enter My courts with singing and praise.  I love to hear your voice every morning as you sing worship songs to Me.

The time will come just as surely as I live that all the Earth will be filled with My glory.  Until that time, keep singing and praising Me.  My angels love to also hear the sound of your voice as you sing My Word back to Me.  They hearken to your needs whenever you give My Word voice.

PSALM 113:3, PSALM 103:20

Friday, May 3, 2019

PATH

I lead you in paths of righteousness for My name's sake.  I do not want you to veer of those paths. You represent Me on Earth and when you veer off the paths I have prepared for you, others will feel like you are a hypocrite.

I am your "Good Shepherd" Who knows that if you veer off My paths, you may suffer harm.  This is why My rod and My staff are in My hands to steer you back on My paths.  My rod is My Word, and My staff is My Holy Spirit Who I have sent to you to make you aware of veering off these paths.

Today, allow Me to lead you on the righteous paths.  You do not have to concern yourself with veering off these paths if you will daily commit  your way to Me.  When you commit your way to Me, I will be able to bring My will to pass in your life.

PSALM 23:2,  37:5

Thursday, May 2, 2019

SELFISH

Look at this word, "selfish."  The last part of the word is "fish."  When I approached My future disciples who were by the shore fishing, they all were selfish men.  The selfish part of mankind is inborn and is a result of the fall of Adam and Eve.

I told those fishermen to follow Me, and I would then make them fishers of men.  All My beloved Who trust Me are called to be fishers of men.  The only thing that holds you and others back from boldly sharing My gospel with others is your selfishness.

Yes, you are afraid of what others will think if you boldly share the truths of My kingdom with people. Today I want you to lay aside yourself and boldly proclaim My Word to others.

LUKE 5:10-11

AFFLICTIONS

"Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all (Psalm 34:19).
This is My promise to those who are righteous through My shed blood.

When you are experiencing affliction, remember this promise and speak it out loud as a sword against My enemy.

Many of My beloved are going through very hard trials now.  I have promised to always hear your cry and to deliver you from every affliction you are experiencing. Do not allow My enemy to deceive you.  I am a faithful deliverer.

PSALM 34:19, 17

GARDENS

As summer draws near, you are excited to at last have fresh vegetables and fruit. In the first garden on Earth where Adam and Eve lived, the plan was that they would enjoy fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs all the time.

Northing fermented because there was a protective shield over Earth that prevented the sun from causing things to rot and mold.  Their garden was watered by a fine mist.

When you are in the New Jerusalem, you will have fresh food all year long.  People will have gardens and they will not have to weed and fertilize their gardens.  You can look forward to this, but until then, I desire for you allow My Spirit to help you develop the fruit of My Spirit.

SURROUND

You live in a very dangerous world.  This could cause you to be fearful when you leave your home to go out into the world.  However, you do not need to fear.

As the days draw near to My second coming, evil will increase because My enemy knows that his time is short.  This is the time that you need to draw near to Me.  You can be filled with My perfect love and joy when you take time before you leave your home to draw near to Me.

In My presence is fulness of joy and also complete and perfect love.  Take time every morning and allow Me to love you.  I will surround you with My Holy angels and My perfect love.  My perfect love will cast out all of your fears.  Fear not.

PSALM 16:11; 1 JOHN 4:18

REVERENCE

There seems to be a lack of reverence in many churches today.  The first part of this word, "reverence," spells "revere."

When people revere Me as they worship Me, there will be reverence in church.  My Word speaks often about the "fear of the Lord."  You fear Me when you have an obedient heart to do My will and an awesome respect for My power.

Some people think this phrase, "the fear of the Lord" means to be afraid of Me.  When people revere Me and My name, I will draw near to them, and My perfect love will be able to cast out all their fears.

1 JOHN 4:18; PSALM 22:25

NUMBERS

Numbers are usually important to people on Earth.  They want to see the numbers listed on the stock market, on their grades and on many other things.  Numbers are also very important to Me.

I keep track of the number of times you have thought about My name and talked to others about Me.  Those numbers are recorded in the "Book of Remembrance."

I also keep track of the number of days that you have left to live. My friend Moses wrote, "So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom." You have no idea of how many days you may have left to live on Earth, but your heart will be able to receive My wisdom if you live each day as the day when you will stand before Me to receive your heavenly rewards.

MALACHI 3:16; PSALM 90:12

DIVISION

My enemy's assignment is to divide families and churches.  It is the spirit of ant-Christ that causes division.  As you pray for those families and churches who are being divided, bind the spirit of inti-Christ with My blood and render it powerless to complete its assignment.

Before you do your warfare, make sure that you are dressed in My full armor and that you and your loved ones are protected by My blood.  I have given you to keys to the kingdom and whatever you bind on earth is bound in heaven (the second heaven where My enemy dwells) and whatever you loose on earth is loosed in the second heaven..

I live in the third heaven, and I am over all principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, and wickedness in heavenly places.  After you have bound whatever demonic spirits that you discern are active, release the Spirit of power, love, and a sound mind to the individuals undergoing division.

ABANDONMENT

I spent My last Passover with My disciples just before I was betrayed.  I knew what I was about to face, but My disciples had no idea what they would face in the future.

When I told the two disciples who wanted to have a chief place next to Me in My kingdom, they were thinking about an earthly kingdom.  When I made My triumphant entrance into Jerusalem, My followers were confident that this would be the time when I would set up My kingdom on earth.

After My betrayal, all the disciples fled in fear with the exception of John.  I experienced abandonment then, but it did not compare to the abandonment I would soon face when I felt My Father had abandoned Me when I hung on the tree.  I know what it is to feel abandoned, so I know exactly how to minister to those who are feel forsaken,  Pray for those you know who feel abandoned.

MATTHEW 22:46

Friday, April 19, 2019

SOUL

When John wrote to Gaius, he said that he prayed that Gaius might prosper in all things and be in health, just as his soul prospers.  This, of course, is My desire for you, and this is a good prayer to pray for all those you love.

The condition of your soul does have an influence on many things in your life and also your health.  This is why I exhort you today to lift up your soul to Me.  Lift your mind, will, and emotions to Me and ask Me to be in control of those aspects of your soul.

The psalmist David prayed, "Unto thee Oh Lord do I lift up My soul."  David knew that I was able to restore his soul whenever he felt disheartened.  He also knew that My Word had the power to convert his soul from discouragement to victory.  Allow Me to do this for you today.

PSALM 19:7

Thursday, April 18, 2019

ORGANIZATION

A business that is not organized will not prosper.  Organization helps employees to find things easily.  Even today as you work on your computer, your data has to be organized so that you can find things when you need them.

When I walked on Earth, I did not have to organize very much.  I depended upon the My Father's instructions moment by moment.  However, there was a complete plan for Me to become the perfect sacrifice so that salvation from sin could be offered to the whole world.

At times, My disciples did not seem very organized.  However, you now have the Holy Spirit Who can help you daily to be organized.  Today and every day, I want you to commit your works to Me, and the promise is that My Spirit will establish your thoughts so that you will know the next thing to do.

PROVERBS 16:3

APPRECIATION

People long to be appreciated and accepted.  However, so often people only think about themselves.  They do not take time to express their appreciation and thanks to those who they see daily.

When was the last time someone said to you, "I truly appreciate you."  If you have not heard this lately, then I want right now to declare My appreciation for you.

I appreciate you just because you are who you are.  You are My special treasure, precious child, willing servant, dear friend, and dedicated disciple. I am delighted to be in your presence, and I love to hear your voice as you sing, pray, worship and praise Me.

EPHESIANS 1:6


Tuesday, April 16, 2019

TRUST

You have learned that the only way to grow in faith is to hear My Word. "So then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God  (Romans 10:17)." 

How do you grow in your ability to trust Me? Proverbs 3:5-6  reveals how you can grow in trust.  "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path (Proverbs 3:5-6)."

When the answers to your prayers do not come right away, you trust that I have not only heard your prayers, but that I also am in the process of answering your requests. Do not allow your own understanding to cause you to doubt.  Instead, acknowledge with thanksgiving that I have heard your requests.  I direct your path, so you can trust that the answer will come in My perfect timing.

ROMANS 10:17; PROVERBS 3;5-6

RECOVERY

After physical surgery, the patient is usually sent to the recovery room where those attending make sure that there are no complications.  If everything is well with the patient, the patient is then sent to a regular room.

I am the "Great Physician" who can do surgery on broken hearts. The surgical knife I use is My Word.  It is a two edged sword that is able to remove the layers of flesh that hide the strongholds (patterns of thinking) that cause certain behavior.

The recovery room after I heal a person's heart is My sanctuary which is My presence.  When complications arose in the psalmist David 's life, he entered My sanctuary. There he found a safe place where he could receive My strength, peace, love, and hope.

ISAIAH 61:6; HEBREWS 4:12; PSALM 63:1-8, 20:2; 73:17

Sunday, April 14, 2019

OVERFLOW

When you allow My Spirit to fill your heart with My love, My love will overflow through you.  Your thoughts will be on Me throughout the day, and you also will be thinking and praying for others.

The only two things that will stop the overflow of My love from your heart are unforgiveness and unbelief.  Unforgiveness will form a hard crust around your heart that prevents My love from flowing out to others.

Unbelief will block your ability to have faith and trust in Me throughout each day.  The enemy will always send thoughts of doubt and accusations about Me.  When those thoughts come, discard them immediately, and the dam of doubt and unbelief that has kept My love from overflowing will be destroyed.

ROMANS 5:5

Friday, April 12, 2019

COUNSEL

When Isaiah wrote about the Spirit of the Lord, I had not been born yet.  However, he was anointed to share exactly why I came to Earth many years later.

Isaiah wrote: "And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord:" This prophecy described the anointing that was upon Me when I walked on Earth.

Because My Spirit lives in you, this anointing can flow thru your earthly vessel when it is needed.  You may think that you could never counsel anyone.  However, whenever you are faced with the opportunity to counsel someone, ask for the spirit of counsel, and you will be amazed how you will be able to help others.

ISAIAH 11:2


Thursday, April 11, 2019

THINGS

Your life is full of things (material things, emotional things, relational things, physical things), I see  all of these things that you encounter daily.  When you put such things in your life ahead of your relationship with Me, every thing is out of order.

Often you get absorbed with taking care of things just as My friend Martha was.  She was so interested in the presentation of things and serving Me a good dinner that she basically ignored Me.

I want you to keep the main thing the main thing in your life and the main thing is Me.  Put Me first in your life by seeking Me early in the morning before you leave your abode, and then all these things will be prioritized according to My will in your life.

LUKE 10:38-40; MATTHEW 6:33


Tuesday, April 9, 2019

DELAY

Often when you release your burdens to Me as you pray, the answers seem to be delayed.  This is especially true when there is much warfare that needs to be done in the spiritual realm.

Daniel's answer to his prayer was delayed for three weeks because there was a great deal of warfare in the spiritual realm.  Finally an angel appeared to him and told him that from the first day he prayed, God heard his prayer.

When you are praying for relationships to be healed, recognize that My Father and I are interceding for all those involved in broken relationships.  Each person involved has specific needs that must be answered in a timely way.  Wait with patience for the answer.  I will do spiritual battle on behalf of those involved and you will eventually see the answer to your prayer.

DANIEL 10:9-13

DOUBLE TIME

The phrase "double time" can mean many things.  In the military the cadence of a march sometimes is double time.  You may feel like you need to double the time in a day in order to finish your work.

As your short term memory begins to fade, you double your work load because you do everything twice. You are living in the last days, and these are the days when I want you to do double time.  

I want you double your time spent with Me so that you can receive a double anointing to help you be the most effective witness as you share the gospel with others.  When you double  your time spent with Me, I can redeem those moments so that you can complete all the works I have designed for you each day.

JOHN 4:35

Sunday, April 7, 2019

SIT

I commanded the multitude to sit down just before I planned to bless the five loaves and two fishes to feed them. The crowds were hungry for physical food because the day was almost spent.

On that day I fed the multitudes both physically and spiritually. They had to sit down before they could receive what would fill their hunger.

Daily, if you will listen to My still, quiet voice, you will hear Me say, "Sit down and take the load off your feet and spend a little time in My presence."  I want to daily feed you spiritually, but first you must hunger for time with Me.  Pray for time today to sit in My presence and allow Me to feed you the bread of life, My holy Word.  I also am the bread of life.

MATTHEW 14:19, 4:4; JOHN 6:32-35

Friday, April 5, 2019

VACATIONS

Vacations are a time for relaxing from the routines of life.  Everyone needs that time to renew them physically and spiritually.  I designed the sabbath for that reason and also the feasts for that reason.

The sabbath provides a time set apart for times with Me and also with family members.  I do want you to try to do no work on such days if at all possible. There are feast days and feast weeks that are designed also for times set aside to direct your thoughts towards Me and to enjoy your family.

Enjoy My presence daily and never miss those days that are created for restoration and renewal for you.  I never missed a feast while I was on Earth.  However, I was late going to the Feast of Tabernacles.

RESIDENCE

Some people have experienced many moves in their lives.  Often those moves include leaving one location to a location many, many miles away.  Wherever you reside on Earth, I desire for you to
make that place a welcoming place for My angels,

I want your residence to be so filled with My presence that people who enter the door of your residence will immediately feel My peace and love.

I am even now preparing a residence for you in heaven.  I told My disciples that I would go to prepare a place for them.  You can look forward to that eternal residence.  Until then, know that you have a special residence in My Father's heart.

JOHN 14::1-3

DELIVERANCE

Soon it will be time for Passover.  This is the time when you remember God's delivering power.  He delivered the Israelites from the cruel bondage of the Egyptians.  The death angel passed over the children of Israel, but did no harm to them because they had put the blood of the lamb upon their doorposts.

I am still in the deliverance business.  Nothing gives Me more joy than to see people set free from the cruel bondage that Satan has put upon them.

Today as you pray, remember that the fast I have chosen for you is to loose the bands of wickedness over people who are bound.  Ask My Spirit today to give you the names of those people you know who are bound, and then use your keys to the kingdom (binding the enemy and loosing My Holy Spirit) over those people.

SHORTCUTS

There are no shortcuts to aid you in becoming a mature believer.  James and John wanted a shortcut to a position in heaven with Me.  I told them, that they had to drink the same cup that I would drink from and experience the same baptism I would experience.

The cup I spoke of was the cup of suffering that I would soon experience and the baptism I spoke of was the baptism of fire that tested My faith in the garden.  The mature believer will have their faith tested many times.

Peter wrote about the trials of our faith that would be tested with fire.  No believer likes to think of suffering or trials that are tested by fire, but when I appear, there will be great rewards for those who have remained faithful through every trial.

MARK 10:35-40; 1 PETER 1:7

ROOTS

I stand amazed at how many believers do not appreciate their Jewish roots.  Some believers even have never heard that I am Jewish or that all My disciples were Jewish with the exception of Luke who was a Gentile.

Jewish people formed the first church.  This fact is never shared in many churches.  Some churches even believe that My Father is done with the Jewish people.  I am a covenant God, and the covenant I made with Abraham is still in place.

I want you to tell your Jewish friends how much you appreciate your Jewish roots.  My Father promised that Abraham would be the father of many nations (Gentiles).  Meditate on that fact today that you are a child of God because God revealed His redemptive plan to the Jews first.  I came preaching the kingdom of God to the Jews first.

GENESIS 17:5

FRONT

Often you miss the opportunity to witness when the person I have chosen for you to speak to about Me is right in front of you.  Always remember that faith can only function in the present moment.  I have given you the "ministry of the moment."

Today, do not be so busy with the routines of life that you forget to listen to My Holy Spirit for opportunities to share My story and your story with others.  I have promised to direct the steps of those who love Me when they delight themselves in Me.

Listen carefully to My Spirit as He directs your steps today.  The person in front of you today is there not by accident.  I will place you in the right place at the right time to enjoy the 'ministry of the moment."

HEBREWS 11:1; PSALM 37:23;

PRESSURE

You live in an age where you can feel pressure almost daily.  You are pressured to perform at work or you will lose your job.  You feel pressure at school when the semester if almost over.  There is just so much you can do in a day's time, and you feel like you are running out of time.

When you are under pressure, I want you to still your soul by visualizing a beautiful gazebo in the middle of a spring garden. All you can hear are the songs of birds as they sing praises to Me.

I am seated with you and My arm is around your shoulder as I whisper My love songs to you. You have just given all your burdens to Me, so your soul is at rest.  Ask Me daily to help you visualize My presence with you, and the pressures of this life will slowly fade away.

PSALM 131:2; MATTHEW 11:28-30

BURY

When someone approached me and wanted to be my follower, he said that he first had to bury his Father.  I responded, "Follow Me; and let the dead bury their dead. This statement might seem rude to you.  However, I wanted those around me and this young man to know that I must come first in his life if he desired to follow Me.

This is the message I want to give you today also.  Family is very important and I want you to enjoy loving your family.  However, I want you to love first your first family.

Yes, My Father and My Holy Spirit and I are your first family.  My Father is your Abba.  My Holy Spirit is like a mother to you.  He comforts you, guides you, and teaches you. I am your elder brother.  The thing I want you to bury daily is the old man within you by reckoning yourself dead to sin and alive to Me.

MATTHEW 8:21-22; ROMANS 6:11

BURDENS

Remember when you had a vision as you released several burdens to Me.in prayer.  You saw those burdens wrapped in silver and gold like gifts ascending into My throne room.  I excitedly grabbed each burden and held it close to Me while I danced around heaven.

You heard Me speak to your heart these words, "Look at the burdens Linda just released to Me.  Now I can do something about them."  Whatever you release to Me I can bless.  I gave the invitation long ago for My beloved to come to Me and release their burdens to Me.

I said that My burden is light.  The reason My burden is light is because the moment I receive your burdens I release those burdens to My Father.  Then we pray in agreement about your burdens.

MATTHEW 11:28; PSALM 68:19 (Amplified)

Monday, March 25, 2019

EXTOL

I want you to extol Me.  This is a way of worshipping Me that immediately will get your mind off your trying circumstances.  When some people are asked, "How are you doing?", the response sometimes is, "I'm doing pretty well under the circumstances."

I never want you to be under your circumstances.  Circumstances come and go, but My word and I am eternal.  I want you to be content no matter what your circumstances are.  The way to rise above your circumstances is to extol Me.

You extol Me when you lift Me up and recognize that I am over all of you circumstances.  Nothing in your life takes me by surprise.  When you lift Me up by acknowledging My power and supremacy over all, your soul (mind, will, and emotions) will also be lifted up.  Extol Me today by praising Me and singing songs to Me.

PSALM 68:4; PSALM 30:1

Sunday, March 24, 2019

TEAM

I had My own team when I walked on Earth.  I spent much time in prayer with My Father before I chose this team.  I was amazed at the choices I heard from My Father.  Each one on My team were so different.  However, they all had one thing in common.  They loved to fish.

After My resurrection and ascension to be with My Father, a new team was formed. I told My first team that they would become fishers of men.  Fishing for men is much like fishing for fish.  You have to throw out the net if you want to catch any fish.

The net you must throw out as a part of My new team is called prayer.  Yes, prayer preparation is the key in sharing My good news with others.  Without prayer preparation, hearts will not be prepared to receive My gospel. Remember, only My Holy Spirit has the power to change a heart.

MATTHEW 4:19


Saturday, March 23, 2019

JUMP

When I gave you this word, I know you questioned if you heard Me, but you did.  I created people with the ability to jump.  Some people jump for joy, and others jump up and down to cheer at sports events.  I have seen worshippers jumping up and down as they praised Me.

You might think that jumping up and down is a strange way to worship Me, but I just love seeing people worship Me this way. I consider that jumping upward is a way of coming closer to Me since I am above all.

The problem with jumping is that the pull of gravity will naturally pull you back down.  However, there is a way that you can stay closer to Me without any pull of gravity drawing you earthward.  That way is to spend time with Me in My presence.  Today is Sabbath.  Spend some time with Me today.

MATTHEW 12:8


Thursday, March 21, 2019

HISTORY

Studying My Word is helpful because you will come to an understanding of Who I am and the plans also that I have for you. Some people say that the Bible is "His Story," which means that the Bible records My story from Genesis to Revelation.

Today as you read your Bible, ask My Holy Spirit to reveal to you a new aspect of My character or another truth that you did not know about Me.

The cherubims of glory continually encircle the throne room in heaven.    Someone, asked in prayer one time, "Don't these cherubims weary of encircling your throne?"  I replied, "No, because every time they pass by the throne room again, they discover a new aspect about Me. Never weary of learning something new about Me.

HEBREWS 9:5

COMMUNICATION

Reconciling broken relationships is impossible when all communication is cut off between the parties concerned. The ability to communicate was the gift given at creation to the first human being.  No other physical being has the ability to use words as communication.

Words are containers that can communicate bitterness and anger or love and grace.  Paul exhorted the Ephesians to make sure that their conversations with others were designed to edify, not to tear down.

Today's way of communicating by email, texting, or face book are substitutes for face to face communication. Even handwritten letters will not work towards a reconciliation solution. I have given all My beloved the ministry of reconciliation.  I exhort you to make every effort for face to face communication to speed the reconciliation process.

SORT

There are so many things that you need to sort out when you are about to move to another location.  You have to decide what you want to take with you, what you can give away, and what needs to go in the trash. I did not have that problem because My life was so very simple when I walked on Earth.

Besides material things that need sorting, you often need to sort out relationships.  You need My help to do this.  People are complicated - emotionally and spiritually.

When a relationship is strained, come to Me, and ask Me to help you know what your part is in the restoration of a relationship that has been difficult. I know the hearts of people.  I desire that you have no broken relationships.  Lift your heart and the other person's heart to Me in prayer, and ask Me to heal the hearts involved.  Only I can heal the brokenhearted.

ISAIAH 61:1; 2 CORINTHIANS 5:18

Monday, March 18, 2019

RESIST

I resist the proud and I give grace to the humble.  If you are dealing with a person who has a haughty spirit, the strategy for you in the Spirit is to stay humble whenever you are with this person.

I give grace to the humble and I resist the proud.  When you take over My job to resist, you are out of order.  Leave the resistance in My hands. Be sure to hide yourself in Me before you do warfare.
I am your full armor. Bind the haughty spirit in My blood and send that wicked spirit to Me.

I am over all principalities and powers, and rulers of darkness and wickedness in heavenly places.  Haughty spirits dwell in the second haven (the atmosphere) where My enemy dwells. Release the hearts of the proud people to Me, and then I will resist them.

JAMES 1:6; EPHESIANS 6

TESTS

People usually dread tests.  They feel as though they are not prepared to pass certain tests. You are in the school of life, and there are many tests that I will allow in your life.  I never tempt people, but I do allow them to be tested.

As you read your Bible, you will see how the patriarchs and apostles were sorely tested.  Every test I allow is a test of faith.  The good news is that if you fail to pass a test of faith, I always give make up tests.  Remember, I gave Peter a make up test.

When I allow your faith to be tested, I have full confidence that you will pass the test when you depend completely upon Me.  Remember, I am the One Who works through you to not only give you the will to do well in testing time, but also the power to pass the test.

PHILIPPIANS 2:13

ABOUND

Paul wrote to the church in Corinth about bountiful grace.  Listen to his words carefully: "So we urged Titus, that as he had begun,  so he would also complete this grace in you as well.  But as you abound in everything-in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all diligence, and in your love for us-see that you abound in this grace also (2 Corinthians 8:7-8.) 

The grace that Paul talked about was the grace of being a cheerful giver. I became poor so that you can now abound.  I am able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.

My grace will always abound to you when you give cheerfully to others, and when you remain always in thanksgiving for my provisions for you.

2 CORINTHIANS 8:-9

Friday, March 15, 2019

FLESH

I understand completely that you sometimes get in your flesh.  Paul and all My apostles had the same problem.  The battle between flesh and Spirit is continual.  How can you win this battle?

Paul wrote about this battle in My Word.  His flesh warred against My Spirit within him almost daily. He lost this war only when he forgot who he is in Me and what I did for him when I died on the tree to set him free from the law of sin and death.

He learned daily to reckon himself dead to sin and alive in Me.  He left this battle in My hands by seeing his position in Me.  Both Paul and you are seated with Me in heavenly places because when  I died in the flesh, you also died in the flesh.  Meditate on this truth, and you will not receive any condemnation from the devil.

ROMANS 7-8

EFFICIENT

People usually praise a person for being efficient.  People who are efficient waste no time, no money, and they have a purpose for doing all they do.  They also have a plan to accomplish their purpose.  Not only that, they seem to have the power or energy to finish what they begin.

Today, I want you to praise Me because I am more efficient than anyone on Earth.  I waste nothing. I am a redeemer who can redeem people who have lived wasted lives.  I can restore relationships that have been broken.

My purpose is to save people from their sins.  My plan is to draw all things to Me at the end time.  My Father has given Me the power to accomplish this plan.  This plan is in action even as you read this.  My friend Paul wrote about my efficiency in Ephesians 1.  Read it, and be encouraged.

EPHESIANS 1:1-19

AFRAID?

Fear is always the frontal attack of My enemy.  He uses fear as a spiritual and emotional anesthetic to paralyze you.  His plan is to send other demonic forces your way once you are paralyzed.

You must understand that certain fears are real, like being fearful when you are face to face with a wild animal that is about to attack you.  Those fears are real.  However, the fear that My enemy sends you is not based on truth.  My enemy is a deceiver.  He is the father of lies.

The fears My enemy sends your way are False Expectations that Appear to be Real.  You learned that acrostic just recently, and do not forget it.  Whenever you are afraid, say out loud: "When I am afraid, I will trust in the Lord." Do not deny the feeling of fear, but fight it by speaking out loud that you trust in Me.

JOHN 8:44; PSALM 56:3

EXPANSION

Churches, communities, cities, and even private homes are expanding.  It seems that people in your age think, "The bigger, the better."  I have noticed that homes are much larger than they used to be.  Leaders in many countries want to expand their territory.

I created Earth to offer room for expansion, but physical expansion of buildings and lands is of little interest to Me.  When I brought the children of Israel into the land of Canaan, I limited their expansion of territory to the borders I planned.

What interests Me is the expansion of My gospel on Earth.  This will only happen as those who believe in Me will faithfully pray for more laborers to labor in this last great harvest.  Watch for opportunities every day to share the truths of My gospel with others.  You are an expansionist.

LUKE 10:2

HOPE

I want you to put all of your hope in Me and My Word..  Hope is not wishful thinking.  Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Only My Word can supply the correct things in which to place your hope.

If you put all of your hope in the things of this world or in people who live in this world, you will be sadly disappointed. If you put your hope in the fact that circumstances or people in your life will change, you have misplaced your hope.

When you place your hope in Me and My Word, this hope will become an anchor to your soul that will keep you from sinking when the waves of adversity beat against the ship of your life.

HEBREWS 11:1, 6:18-19
