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.

FOUNDATIONS

Paul warned Timothy that in the last days perilous times would come.  Paul described how the moral character of many in the last days would be non-existent.  He said people would be lovers of their own selves and lovers of pleasure more than lovers of Me.

You are seeing demonstrations of the destruction of the foundations of your nation. My Word says, "If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalm 11:3)" 

As you celebrate the founding of your nation, pray that the foundations will be restored.  Your nation was founded on the principles found in My Word.  Pray for My body in your nation to humble themselves and pray and seek Me with all of their hearts and repent and turn from their selfish, sinful ways.  Then I will heal your land.

2 TIMOTHY 3:1-5; PSALM 11:3; 2 CHRONICLES 7:14

ROUTINES

This pandemic has caused a pause in many of our usual routines of life. There is something comfortable about routines.  We have certain days to do certain things.  As many shelter in place, the days of the week often seem the same.

Some people are now able to resume their jobs and their usual routines, but things are definitely not like they used to be.  This pause can be beneficial if you use this pause to draw close to Me.

David, My beloved psalmist, recorded many pauses in his routines of life. One of those pauses occurred when David returned home to find his home burned to the ground and his family missing. He could have lost all hope. However, David learned to encourage himself in Me during distressful pauses in his life.  You can have a pause that refreshes even in the midst of this pandemic when you draw close to Me by praising Me.

1 SAMUEL 30:1-6

ENEMIES

Some have called the virus in the pandemic the" Hidden Enemy."  This virus is something that you cannot see, but you know it is all around you. Your constant prayer is that you and all you love will be protected from this deadly virus.

Few people realize, however, that we have other hidden enemies all around us, and they can be just as deadly as this virus.  Satan and his demonic armies are in the air around us.  My Word says that Satan is the prince and power of the air.

Knowing these facts could tempt you to pull the covers up over your head every day and vow never to go outside again.  The good news is that you do not have to fear these silent foes if you have given your life to Me.  Surrender every day to Me, and I will defend you against every foe.

EPHESIANS 2:2

AMUSEMENT

 Amusements are forms of entertainment.  Now that amusement parks and beaches are open, people are flocking to these places even though the virus crisis is still present.  It is human to seek forms of amusement.

The fleshly part of you will always seek amusements to please and satisfy your five senses, but amusements only give temporary pleasure and satisfaction. Paul wrote Timothy that in the last days people would be lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God.

The pleasure I have to offer you is fullness of joy and pleasures that will satisfy you both now and for all eternity.  You will receive lasting satisfaction and the very path to a fruitful life when you spend time in My presence.

2 TIMOTHY 3:4; PSALM 16:11

LOW

This has been a low time for so many who have lost their jobs or loved ones because of this pandemic.  My prayer always is that during the low times in your life, you will allow Me to draw you upward into My presence

I have promised that if you will draw near to Me, I will draw near to you.  I know when you experience much loss in your life, that you often feel like you cannot go forward.  When those times come, I want you to pour out your fears and even your complaints to Me.

I have sent My comforter, My Holy Spirit, to you, and He is waiting to embrace you with the warmth of My love.  I am the glory and lifter of your head, and I want you to allow Me right now to not only lift your head, but also to lift away the burden you are carrying.

JAMES 4:8; PSALM 3:3

EXCELLENT

When you got an A+ in school, you knew that you had done an excellent job of studying.  You can be thankful that I do not grade you on your spiritual walk with Me.  It also will give you great comfort to know that you have a companion Who will help you achieve excellence in all your endeavors.

When you accepted Me as your Lord and Savior, My Holy Spirit came to dwell within you.  He came to set you free from any bondage that would hold you back from living a life of excellence.  Once My Holy Spirit invaded the lives of My disciples, their endeavors to share My gospel became excellent.

I want you  to have an A+ in glorifying Me (making My presence known) on Earth.  This is only possible as you yield to My excellent Spirit within you.  Daily submit your whole being (body, soul, and spirit) to My Holy Spirit, and He will work within you both the will and the power to do My good pleasure day by day.

JOHN 14:26; PHILIPPIANS 2:13

DOWN DAYS

The emotional part of your being is extremely vulnerable to My adversary.  He loves to attack you on the feeling level.  Most everyone is affected by how they feel each day.  Sometimes you feel down, and instead of turning to Me, you allow My enemy to take advantage of you.

On those down days, I want you to sing songs to Me or listen to praise music.  Then I can dress you with the garment of praise that will lift the spirit of heaviness off of you.  This will take a determined effort on your part, since the last think you feel like doing is praising Me.

I want you to do what My servant David did when he had down days, and he had many of them. First he remembered all the times I helped him in the past.  Then he began to sing songs of praise.  Follow these guide lines the next time you have a down day, and you will enter My joy and peace.

ISAIAH 61:3

DISTANT

Some people who do not know Me, call Me the "Man Upstairs."  At least they get part of that statement correct.  I am a man, but I also am God in the flesh.

Many false religions and cults are willing to say that I was a good teacher, but they deny My divinity.  My Father sent Me to walk among you so that I could become the perfect intercessor for you.

As a man, I was touched with the feelings of your weaknesses. When I died on the tree, I felt every bodily pain, every emotional torment, and every mental anguish that a person can feel.  I am not distant. I came to experience all you experience with one exception.  I had no lusts.  Come to Me daily with your pain and allow Me to intercede for you.

HEBREWS 4:15

PLACE

The virus crisis you are experiencing now has caused many places of worship to temporarily close their doors. Places of worship are very important because My beloved have a chance to fellowship, praise, give thanks, and worship Me together.

There are many countries in the world where believers have to meet in secret because of the persecution in those countries.  My disciples often had to meet in secret because of the persecution they experienced.

Remember My promise, "Where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them."  I want to exhort you more than ever to meet with just a few to pray in agreement for a spiritual awakening in your nation, and also to pray for all those who are suffering because of this virus crisis.  I will always be present as you gather to pray.

MATTHEW 18:18-20

OPINIONS

When I walked on Earth, people had different opinions about Me.  The religious leaders said that I was a blasphemer. Others thought I was Elijah.  When I asked Peter what his opinion of Me was, he had the right answer.

Peter said, "You are the Christ, the son of the living God."  I told Peter that upon this rock I would build My church.  I was not saying that Peter would be the rock that I would build My church upon.  I was saying that My church would be built upon his confession, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."

True believers can express the same opinion of Me that Peter declared.  When you truly believe that I am the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and you accept Me as your Lord and Savior, it should not matter any longer what opinions others have of you.  What matters is the opinion My heavenly Father and I have of you.  You are My Father's precious child and you are My beloved one.

MATTHEW 16:13-19

INSPIRATION

This virus crisis has changed the routines of life for many.  The daily jobs, shopping, appointments, are not the same as in the past.  During this time when there have been so many changes in your life, you hunger for inspiration. 

When you looked up this word, "inspiration,"you discovered that it is very appropriate for these days you are experiencing.  The first definition is to draw breath to fill the lungs.  Those who have been hospitalized with the virus are having difficulty drawing breath. Pray for them.

Another definition for inspiration is a divine influence upon human beings.  My Word was inspired by My Holy Spirit. As you read My Word, ask My Holy Spirit to help lead you to the truths that will divinely influence you and then pass those truths to others who desperately need inspiration.

JOHN 16:13


Sunday, June 21, 2020

GIFTS

You just celebrated Father's Day, and many fathers received gifts and cards.  My heavenly Father gave you to Me as a gift.  Your expressions of love to My heavenly Father are so appreciated.

I have heard you sing the song, "You are a Good, Good Father."  This song gives Me great joy because I came to Earth to reveal how good My Father in heaven is.  I was able to display His mercy and healing power to the sick and His delivering power to those who were oppressed.

There are many on Earth Who have difficulty believing that My Father is good because of all the turmoil that exists in this world.  You have the opportunity today to pray for those who have been unable to receive both My love and the love of My Father because they did not experience love from their earthly fathers.  I came to heal their hearts.  Lift their hearts up to Me in prayer today.

JAMES 1:17

Saturday, June 20, 2020

DRAMA

My Word is full of dramas that are far more interesting than anything you could see on your I phone, computer, TV,  stage or in a movie. I am the lead actor in all of these dramas, and the script for all of these dramas were written by men who were inspired by My Holy Spirit.

It is so easy for your Bible reading to become just a duty you perform every day rather than a delight.
When you open your Bible to read, I want you to ask the author (My Holy Spirit) to interpret the words and the dramas in the Bible to you.  I sent My Spirit to lead and guide you into all truth.

It is knowing the truth and living the truth that will set you free from bondage.  I am watching the drama of your life unfold, and I delight to see you seeking the truths that are revealed in every drama recorded in My Word.

JOHN 16:13; 8:31-32

Friday, June 19, 2020

CHOICES

There are so many choices people have to make throughout their lives.  In fact, your life is the result of the choices you have made. 

The wrong choices you have made in the past do not define who you are now.  Before you were going My way and seeking My wisdom, you made choices that were not wise. 

Now that you are desiring to walk daily in the power of My Spirit, I will be able to direct your choices.  Of course, the consequences of the wrong choices you made in the past are still present.  However, I can restore the years the locusts have eaten and redeem the mistakes of the past.
These truths should give you great hope for your future.

JOEL 2:25

PIERCE

The fishermen left their nets immediately to follow Me. When we made eye to eye contact, they knew I was their long awaited Messiah. My eyes pierced their hearts.

My eyes are like laser beams that reveal everything about the hearts of people. Even though I left My kingly glory to come and live among people on Earth, the glory light of My Father shined through My eyes.

My Father commanded the light to shine out of darkness into your heart to give the the light of the knowledge of His glory in My very face.  Even though you are an earthen vessel, the light of My Father's glory can shine through your eyes.  Let your light so shine before people today so that they might see your good works and glorify My Father in heaven

2 CORINTHIANS 4:6; MATTHEW 5:16

TUNE

You are an instrument that I have created to glorify Me in what you say and what you do.  Just as an instrument needs to be tuned before it makes sounds that are melodious, I want you to allow My Spirit to tune you.

The process of tuning you takes time.  My Spirit has the assignment to conform you to My image. However, you need to yield to My Spirit daily and cooperate with Him as He fulfills this assignment.

When you are out of tune, you revert back to operating in your flesh.  When this happens you will say and do things that are not edifying.  Depend upon My Spirit today to order your conversation aright and also to lead and guide you throughout the day.

ROMANS 8:29, 12:2; PSALM 50:23

TRYING

I understand how you have recently had many trying days.  Trying days have been experienced by multitudes of people during this worldwide virus crisis.

One of the ways to get through trying days is to quit trying.  Quit trying with your own self-effort to make these days less difficult.  Peace of mind and heart can only be received when you release your day to Me.  It is best to do this early in the morning before things get busy.

I want you to surrender your day, your will, your way, your emotions, your family and your entire self (body, soul, and spirit) to Me in the morning.  Then trust Me to get you through trying days.

JOHN 14:27

REFRESH

When your computer is not responding, you have to refresh it by turning it off and turning it back on again.  This usually works.  Your mind works like a computer.

Sometimes you just need to unplug your mind and get a fresh start.  My enemy cannot read your mind, but he can send untruthful, negative thoughts to your mind.  If you express those thoughts verbally, you can say things that you wished you had not said.

Words can edify or tear down. When you are overwhelmed with negative thoughts about someone or some circumstance, it is time to refresh your mind by staying your mind on Me. Take those negative thoughts captive and give them to Me. Then I will be able to bring peace to your mind once again.

ISAIAH 26:3; 2 CORINTHIANS 10:5

Saturday, June 13, 2020

CLARITY

As you read My Word, I want you to have clarity as you read it.  I sent My Holy Spirit to be your teacher after I left earth to be with My Father.

As you depend upon My Spirit  to give you clarity of mind and heart when you read My Word, you will be able to apply My Word to your daily life. 

My Word is living and it is powerful.  Only My Word has the power to divide your soul and spirit. My Word can discern the thoughts in the mind part of your soul and the very intents of your heart in your spirit.

HEBREWS 4:12

Friday, June 12, 2020

TIMELESS

It seems like one day blends into another during this virus crisis.  Many are praying that there will be an end to this soon, but reports are not very positive.

I live in eternity where there is no time or space.  A thousand years is like a day to Me.  The day will come when there will be an end of time.  People will no longer be trying to make appointments on time or trying to schedule their lives according to time.

Today I want you to schedule your day with the help of My Spirit. Trusting My Spirit to lead you without looking at your watch constantly will be an exercise in trust that I want you to experience.  My Spirit will be able to remind you of your daily appointments, and when you spend time with Me in the morning, My Spirit will see to it that you accomplish what I want you to do today.

2 PETER 3:8

Thursday, June 11, 2020

ACCUSATIONS

My adversary always uses the tongues of others to accuse you and all believers.  My Word says that Satan is the "accuser of the brethren."  You are living in a day when there will be many false accusations against you.

I want you to be at peace when this happens.  After I was resurrected, I gave My disciples the priestly role of being able to totally forgive the sins of others.  I breathed into them My Holy Spirit, and then I said to them, "Whose soever sins you remit, they are remitted unto them, and whose soever sins you retain, they are retained (John 20:21)."

The way to silence the accuser is to totally forgive the person who has accused you.  The ability to forgive others totally was given to the disciples on that day I breathed My Spirit into them.  I told them that I  was sending them to do the same thing I did.  What was that thing?  I came to forgive the world of their sins.  You have this power within you right now.  You are called to forgive others even as I have forgiven you. This means that you do not want your accusers to suffer for their sins.

REVELATION 12:10; JOHN 20:19-23; EPHESIANS 4:32

AGE

When I observe you and others who are about to finish their journey on Earth, I think about Moses and how his ministry did not begin until he was 80 years old.  Abraham was 100 when he had Isaac, the son of promise.

When you know your calling and are renewing your mind daily in My Word,  the last years of your journey will be more fruitful than ever in My kingdom.  People who daily want to do My will are not limited by their age.

Maturity in the Spirit has nothing to do with what age you are.  The most mature believers are those who depend the most upon My Holy Spirit to lead, teach, and bring all things that I ever did to their remembrance.  Today, view this day as your opportunity to become more dependent upon My Holy Spirit Who can keep you forever young.

ROMANS 12:2; JOHN 14:26.

Tuesday, June 9, 2020

FALL

Ever since the fall of man, people have been subject to falling into sin.  The secret to not falling into sin is to not allow your own lusts to lead you into sin.  If you open the door of your mind to the lust of the eye (vain imaginations that lead to greed and covetousness) you will sin if you do not take that such thoughts captive immediately.  Do not allow the devil to build this stronghold in your mind.

It is no sin to have lusts because we were born with them after the Fall.  However, it is a sin to not take our thoughts captive to Jesus when we are tempted by seducing spirits. Seeking to satisfy our five senses in an indulgent, addictive way like overeating is another lust that we can give in to.  Again, take those tempting thoughts captive and give them to Jesus.

Thinking that we can handle things ourselves without the help of others or of God is pride.  We open the door to the lust of pride when we get into strife or are jealous of another.  Humble yourself today and ask Jesus to do battle for you whenever you are tempted.  Then the victory will be ours and the battle will be the Lord's.

JAMES 1:13-14; 1 JOHN 2:15-16; 2 CORINTHIANS 10:3-6

SUBSTANCE

"Now faith is the substance of  things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1)."  This is a truth from My Word that has relevant meaning for the times that you live in today.  You cannot see faith or hope just as you cannot see the corona virus, but you know they are present.

The substance of faith is hope, and that substance is real.  It is substance you can see.  Hope is the serene, confident expectation of good.  The only way you can see and receive the hope that will stabilize your emotions during these turbulent times is to abide in My Word. 

The highway into My throne room is called "Faith," and that highway is paved with this real substance called hope.  I want your highway of faith today to be paved with My promises that are found in My Word.  Fill your mind with My promises, and your faith will be solid, and hope will anchor your emotions.

HEBREWS 11:1; ROMANS 10:17

Sunday, June 7, 2020

SUBSCRIBE

You have a multitude of things to subscribe to such as TV programs, magazines, newspapers, and the internet. My Word says that in the last days, men will be ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Knowledge is at your fingertips now through the internet.

My question is,  "What are you subscribing to?"  My exhortation to you today is to spend time reading and receiving knowledge from something that you do not have to subscribe to.  You do not have to subscribe to My Word. The knowledge and wisdom from My Word is at your finger tips daily.

My Word is current and speaks to every problem you may be having today.  Take time daily to read My Word and allow the knowledge and wisdom that will set you free from every bondage to be your daily first choice for reading.

2 TIMOTHY 3:7; ROMANS 11:33

Saturday, June 6, 2020

SHAKING

Earthquakes will be more numerous as the days draw close to the end of the age.  I do not want you to be shaken when the earth seems to be reeling.  I want you to be shaking with the power of My Spirit.

I had prepared My disciples to face the persecution that lay ahead of them after I ascended.  After My disciples received the power of My Spirit  they gathered to pray and one time when they were gathered, the whole place was shaken by My Holy Spirit power. 

Pray for that same Spirit power to come upon those who believe in Me.  It is the power of My Spirit that will usher in this last harvest before I come to receive My bride.  Submit yourself daily to My Spirit and ask for a fresh anointing so that others will see and feel My presence when you are with them.

ACTS 4:29-31

Friday, June 5, 2020

ANCHOR

The waves of adversity are pounding against your country at this time,  In fact, I see the turmoil all over the world.  Nothing goes past My sight. 

When troubling times come, it is easy to be disheartened and to begin to doubt that I am in control.  Let Me assure you that I am in control.  The writer of Hebrews compares hope as an anchor for the soul. Sometimes you feel you are going to be submerged by these waves of adversity, but I want you to throw out your anchor of hope.

The hope I am speaking of is not wishful thinking.  The hope I want you to have is hope in Me. I am your hope. Meditate on this verse today: "Christ in you, the hope of glory ( COLOSSIANS 1:27)."  Let this verse sink like an anchor in your mind, emotions, and will, and My peace will invade your soul.

HEBREWS 6:11-19; COLOSSIANS 1:27

Thursday, June 4, 2020

FEASTS

The Feast many Jewish believers just enjoyed was Shavuot.  This Feast celebrates the giving of the Law on Mt. Sinai.  When the law was given, fire fell on the mountain.

Shavuot is also when fire fell once again as My disciples were gathered in the upper room after I had ascended to be with My Father. Those 120 gathered were baptized by My Spirit and empowered to be My witnesses throughout the world.

Fires have been set in many cities in your country by lawless people.  Pray for the protection of the innocents during this trying time in your country. Do not be distracted from fulfilling the call I have given you to be My witness throughout the world.  People are observing the peace you have in the midst of these troubled times, and they will ask you what is the reason for your peace and hope. Tell them that I have overcome the world.

EXODUS 24:16-17; ACTS 2:1-4; JOHN 16:33

ERRANDS

There is a reason I gave you this word today. When you looked up the word, "errand," in the dictionary, you discovered that an errand is a short trip to do a definite thing for yourself or someone else.

Short trips were rare when I ministered around the Galilee.  In fact, the trip to Jerusalem from the Galilee was quite a long trip. 

I know how you used to love to send others in your family to do errands for you. Ask Me to lay on your heart people who are still housebound because of this virus crisis.  Offer to do some errands for them before you do your own errands.  My Word lists almost fifty ways that you can demonstrate My love to others.  You might want to list the "One another" verses in My Word.

ROMANS 12:10



Tuesday, June 2, 2020

GUARDIANS

You are facing a world of turmoil, but remember I promised that in the world you would have tribulation.  I also exhorted you to be of good cheer because I have overcome the world.

I overcame the world when I died to forgive you of your sins and was resurrected and ascended to heaven. After My resurrection, Mary looked into the sepulchre, and she saw two angels in white, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where My body had lain.

These were My guardian angels My Father gave Me when I walked on Earth.  My Father saw to it that I had an angel assigned to guard over the gates to My mind (My eye, ear, and mouth gates). He also assigned one to watch over My path. My Father has assigned two guardian angels to you also, so you can be of good cheer in the midst of turbulent times.

JOHN 16:33, 20:11-12

GUESTS

I was so grateful that Mary and Martha often invited me to their home. There home was not far from Jerusalem where I traveled for all the feasts. How I loved to just relax and dine with them. 

Having guests in your home is very important.  The writer of Hebrews exhorted believers to host strangers because they might be entertaining strangers unawares. The writer of Hebrews also exhorted believers to forsake not assembling themselves together and so much more as the day approaches to My return.

Paul also encouraged believers to be hospitable, and Peter exhorted believers to use hospitality without grudging.  During this virus crisis, many have missed being with fellow believers. Pray that  hosting others in your home and assembling in churches will soon return to normal. 

HEBREWS 13:2; 10:25; ROMANS 12:13; 1 PETER 4:9

PURPOSE

Why did God allow this pandemic to occur?   Some question, "If God is all powerful, and He is in control, then why can't He stop death, disease, and disasters?

People forget that there is the god of this world and the God Who created the Earth, mankind, and the universe. 

Adam and Eve were given free will, and they chose to disobey God when they were tempted by Satan.  Satan then had the legal right to become the god of this world.  The good news is that My Father so loved the world that He sent Me to Earth to destroy the works of the devil.

LUKE 9:56

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

CHOICES/VOICES

Your life consists of daily choices.  If you choose to love Me with all your heart and to hear and obey my voice, you will have a blessed life.

The choices you make daily will depend upon what you hear.  Every day there are many voices that speak to your mind.  These voices come in the form of thoughts, not audible voices.  When you hear: "I think, I feel, I want," you are listening to the inner voice of your soul.

If you choose to hear your soul instead of My Word spoken to your spirit, you will open yourself up to give into your lusts. Start your day by taking time to hear My voice as you read My Word and commit your works to Me. When you make these choices, I can establish your thoughts throughout the day. Choose today to have a blessed day.

PROVERBS 16:3

Monday, May 25, 2020

CLEAR

Many of you have wearied of the long "sheltering in place orders" that were issued months ago. You are eagerly awaiting the all clear orders so that normal life can resume.

You are living in the last days before I will return. Do not be surprised when there will be more life-changing circumstances that will try your patience.  What was normal before may never be again.
This is why I want you to live in the moment.

Fear is rooted in the "what if" thoughts that My enemy sends you.  I do not want your heart to be troubled during these uncertain times. Instead, trust Me with all of your heart and refuse to lean on your own understanding. Faith can only operate in the present moment, and you can walk in faith when you trust Me with your future.

PROVERBS 3:5; HEBREWS 11:1

Sunday, May 24, 2020

KEEPER

If you become a friend to someone you really like,  you usually say: "That person is a keeper." I am a friend Who is worth keeping.  More than that, I am a friend that will keep you from falling. 

I am able to watch over you continually.  I neither slumber nor sleep.  I am able protect you and keep you out of danger.  I am able to keep from making wrong choices. I am able to keep you by supplying your daily needs.

Look back over your life today and review how many times I have kept you.  I will continue to be your Keeper for the rest of your life.

PSALM 121:3; JOHN 17:11-12, 15

Friday, May 22, 2020

SUBJECT

I gave you this word because it can be used as a noun and as a verb.  When I lived on Earth, I taught like the rabbis taught.  They taught by subject, and you will notice that my teachings were divided into subjects.

The word "subject" can be used as a verb.  We can subject ourselves to certain leaders or ideas. We can choose whose authority we want to be under, and this is the subject I want to teach you today.

When you choose not to resist temptation, you become subjected to Satan, and you will sin.  Sin is a choice.  You cannot blame Satan for causing you to sin.  Every day you have a choice to give into your fleshly desires or to subject yourself to My Holy Spirit Who will help you battle temptation.
What will be your choice today?

JAMES 4:7

Thursday, May 21, 2020

DEAL

Most people want to discover a good deal.  They usually will share their discovery with those they love the most because they want them to take advantage of the same good deal.

When I spoke to the woman at Jacob's well, she soon found out that I did not condemn her and that I could give her living water that would quench her thirst forever.  The moment I finished My talk, she ran into town to share this good news.

The free gift of salvation is a deal that I want you to share.  Listen carefully to My Spirit as He leads you to share with others.

JOHN 4:5-30

Wednesday, May 20, 2020

CONTINUE

By now you are wandering how long it will be before things get back to normal after this virus crisis.  I know this is the question you ask when you go through a trial that seems to be unending.

I want you to have complete assurance that I am continuing to make perfect intercession for you throughout your long trials.  I told Peter that I would pray for him because I knew that he was going to be sifted by Satan.  My prayer for him was that his faith would not fail and that he would strengthen other believers when he was converted.

Yes, Peter was converted.  He was converted from self-sufficiency and pride to a place where he was totally dependent upon Me.  This is my plan for you in every trial.  I pray that every trial you go through will be used to strengthen others who are also experiencing enduring trials.

LUKE 22:31-32

VOWS

A vow is a solemn promise.  Vows are promises that you hope to perform or pay in some way. When people marry, they usually write their own marriage vows to one another.

The psalmist David made many vows to Me. He prayed that he could perform his vows to Me.  One of the ways he performed his vows to Me was by singing praises to Me.  He also performed his vows to Me by offering thanksgiving to Me.

The psalmist encouraged others to pay their vows to Me when he wrote: "Vow, and pay unto the Lord your God; let all that be round about him bring presents to Him that ought to be feared."  I love to hear your praises, thanksgiving, and worship, but the major way you can pay your vows to Me is by offering the members of your body daily to Me so that the very members of your body can become instruments of My righteousness, peace, joy and love.  You are the best present I could ever receive.

PSALM 61:8;, 50:14; ROMANS 6:13

GATHER

There are many definitions for the word, "gather." It means to unite or to join.  When I preached the kingdom of God on Earth, thousands were gathered to hear Me.

Since this virus crisis, you have been encouraged to not meet in your various churches. Now that some of the restrictions are being lifted, many of you are able to return to your church for worship and to hear a message.

I know the joy you experience when you are gathered together for prayer, worship, and to hear My Word.  I am overjoyed to once again hear corporate worship.  Whenever you assemble for worship, I join you as you praise My heavenly Father.  This is why you feel My presence so near to you. The writer of Hebrews wrote, "Saying, I will declare Your name to My brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise to You."

HEBREWS 2:12

PLANS

I have heard people speak this declaration, "Man makes his plans, and God laughs."  I do not laugh at man's plans.  In fact, I am often grieved when I see the plans that men have that will lead to death and destruction.

Solomon wrote years ago these words, "There is way that seems right to a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death."  My plan for mankind will be totally accomplished.  In fact My Father's plan to redeem mankind from sin through My death, burial, resurrection, and ascension was in place from the foundation of the Earth.

My plan for you is peace, not evil.  My plan is to give you a purpose and an expected end.  Pray for those who are making their own plans without coming to Me so that My plan for them can be fulfilled.

PROVERBS 14:12; JEREMIAH 29:11

DECLARATION

Words are containers.  Words can contain doubt, fear, and many negative declarations.  We have a choice daily to declare what My Word says or to speak what the world says.

Daily you can send powerful weapons against My enemy by what you declare.  The moment My enemy puts a fearful thought in your mind, I want you to say out loud: "Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in the Lord."  This declaration is true, and it is found in David's words when he wrote: "What time I am afraid, I will trust in the Lord."

Many are still in fear because of the worldwide virus crisis you are now experiencing.  The only way to fight the negative words that are spoken in your news is to declare My Word.  A good word for you to declare is the word that Paul wrote: "Now thanks be to God, Who always causes us to triumph in Christ...." I will always cause you to triumph in and over whatever circumstance you face.

PSALM 56:3:2 CORINTHIANS 2:14

Friday, May 15, 2020

HALLELUJAH

I love to hear you say, "Hallelujah!" Hallel in Hebrew means "house." "jah" in Hebrew is a shortened form of Jehovah. This word simply means praise or a song of praise to God.  You will not find this word in My Word.  Many songwriters use this word in their hymns and poets use it in their poetry.

Hallelujah is an international word that means the same thing in every language.  I want you to have a "Hallelujah Day" every day of the year.  Just speaking this word several times during the day will keep your mind and heart focused on Me.

You will truly have a "Hallelujah Day" when your appointed time comes to leave this Earth to be with Me face to face.  On that day you will begin the word, "Halleu" as you take your last breath on Earth, and you will exclaim the "jah" part of this word in My presence.  To be absent from the body is to be present with Me. HALLELUJAH!!

1 CORINTHIANS 5:3

IDENTIFY

It is hard for you to completely identify with those who have experienced the death of a loved one from the virus or the many who are on the front line to save people who have the virus.

I came to Earth to identify with mankind.  I was tempted in all points just as you are, yet I was without sin. I can identify with whatever trial anyone on Earth experiences.  When the sins of the world were placed upon Me, I identified with the bondage and pain that sin brings.

I am your High Priest Who can make perfect intercession to My Father because I can express to My Father exactly how you feel emotionally, psychologically, mentally, and physically.  I encourage you to express just what concerns you today as you pray, and rest assured that I can perfect everything that is a concern to you.

HEBREWS 4:15; PSALM 138:8

VOLUNTEER

Volunteers are people who of their own free will offer to serve others. There are many volunteers who are serving others at the risk of their own lives during this virus crisis.  The only pay they receive, in most cases, is just the joy of serving others.

I came to Earth to serve, not to lord it over people.  For the joy that was set before Me, I died on the tree with the knowledge that My sacrifice would provide a way for all mankind to have right standing with My Father. I was God in the flesh and because I was flesh, I had to lay down my own will to fulfill My Father's will.

No greater love has a person than the one who is willing to lay his life down for a friend.  Ask yourself today this question:  "Am I willing to serve others at my own risk?"

HEBREWS 12:2; JOHN 15:13

TEACHING

Most of the teaching during this virus crisis has been over the internet.  The personal contact via this method lacks much.  The students miss being together, and also they miss the personal touch from their teachers.

My Father gave Me 12 disciples to teach, and one of those twelve pretended to be My follower.  The other disciples seemed to be slow learners, and they really did not understand what I taught until I was resurrected and they experienced the baptism in My Spirit at Pentecost.

My Holy Spirit is able to teach and guide you to understand all the truths in My Word.  Many believers have knowledge of My Word, but they lack understanding.  Wisdom is applied knowledge.  Ask the Holy Spirit today to anoint  you and help you apply the principles that are found in My Word.

ACTS 2:1-4; JOHN 16:13

Monday, May 11, 2020

CAUTION

As stores and other places open where you live, I want you to be aggressive to take precautions.  More than ever, I want you to pray and ask My Holy Spirit to put you in the right place at the right time.

Those who are led by My Spirit are sons and daughters of God.  I want you to listen carefully as My Spirit guides you through each day.  I have angels assigned to watch over you daily.  However, obeying the leading of My Spirit will give you a fruitful day.

Continue to place My blood over all of your loved ones daily and lift the shield of faith over them.  Speak this truth:over yourself and your loved ones: "You and they are hid with Me in My Father's heart."  These prayer precautions will help both you and your loved ones to get through this time safely.

ROMANS 8:14; HEBREWS 1:13-14; COLOSSIANS 3:3

IMPRINT

Job prayed, "Oh that my words were now written! Oh that they were printed in a book!  Little did Job know that his words would be written in a book.

The Bible records My life from Genesis to Revelation. The word, "imprint" in English means "to implant firmly on the mind or to fix in the memory."

Ask My Holy Spirit today to implant My Word in your mind and to fix My Word in your memory Use this time of sheltering to memorize My Word.  The day may come when you will no longer have access to My Word. When My Word is imprinted on your heart, you will experience great peace and joy in every trial you may face.

JOB 19:23; PSALM 119:11

ENVELOP

When you wake up in the morning, I see you enveloped in My robe of righteousness.  I want you to see yourself this way as you wrap your morning robe around you. 

When you have this picture in your mind, there will be no room in your mind for condemnation to invade your thoughts.  I did not come into the world to condemn the world.  I came to save it.  My enemy loves for you to dwell on the times you said and did the wrong things.

You are not only enveloped in My robe of righteousness, but you are also enveloped in My love.
You are hid with Me in My Father's heart.  Today meditate on these truths, and you will have a blessed day.

JOHN 3:17; COLOSSIANS 3:3

ONLY

Many people object to My good news because they do not believe that I am the only way that they can be saved and live eternally. It is My Holy Spirit Who can open their eyes to the truth. 

I said that "I am, the way, the truth and the life.  The whole universe was created by Me and for Me.  You were created for My pleasure, and I know the very hairs on your head.  I have loved you eternally even before the foundation of the Earth were formed.

Pray for those you know who have yet to make the decision to ask Me to be their Lord and Savior.  Pray for the Spirit of Truth to reveal to those who think I am not a loving God because they believe that I send people to hell who do not believe in Me.  I gave mankind free choice.  No one goes to hell unless they choose to.  Many alive today choose to live in darkness rather than to come to My light.

COLOSSIANS 1:16-17;JOHN 8:12

FORWARD

What will life be going forward after this virus crisis is over?  This is the question that many are asking now.  Only I know the future and this is why I taught My disciples to take no thought for tomorrow. 

When you are absorbed with thinking about the future, it is so easy for you to become worried and anxious. I told My disciples that "tomorrow will take thought for the things of itself.  Sufficient to the day is the evil thereof (Matthew 6:34)."

Faith can only be exercised in the present moment.  You can trust Me with your future, but I want you to live in the moment, and ask My Holy Spirit to lead you to do the next thing.  You will be surprised at how I will use you in the moment if you will commit your moments to Me every morning.

HEBREWS 11:1; MATTHEW 6:25-34

COMPETITION

The natural man usually wants to compete for the best in most things.  You see the competitive spirit in sports, business, and among siblings.  The spiritual man, however, does not compete for first place.
On the contrary, people who are led by the Holy Spirit will esteem others higher than themselves.

Two of My disciples competed with the other disciples to sit next to Me in My kingdom.  My response to them was the same response that I give to you today.

I responded with this question, "Can you drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?  They responded with a firm, "Yes."  They did not understand that they would soon drink from the cup of suffering and be baptized by fiery trials. Ask My Holy Spirit to help you today to give you a servant spirit that is willing to lay down your life for Me.

PHILIPPIANS 2:3; MARK 10:35-40

REMEMBER

This virus crisis has been severe in many lives. People have seen their loved ones rushed to the hospital with the virus.  The family left behind cannot visit their loved ones who are struggling, and the patient in the hospital cannot help but be confused.

There is no distance or time with prayer.  When you pray, your prayers can travel to heaven and back and change lives on Earth.  Pray for those who are experiencing trauma in their lives.

Your prayers are your way of saying, "I care for you."  I have given everyone the invitation to give Me their burdens, but many do not know how to release their cares to Me.  The way to bear one another's burdens is to intercede on behalf of those who are suffering and who do not know to turn to Me in prayer.

MATTHEW 11:28-30; GALATIANS 6:2

Saturday, May 2, 2020

TRANQUIL

When you see city streets with no traffic, I am sure that this sight is almost surreal to you.  In spite of the appearance of tranquility, there is tremendous trauma in the emergency rooms of hospitals.  

Only I can supply the peace that passes your understanding during this virus crisis.  I am your peace.  I am your "Good Shepherd" who can lead you beside still waters so that your soul will be restored.

Pray for all those who are on the front lines to fight to save lives.  Pray for the families who have experienced fear and the death of loved ones.  Pray for those in the ICU rooms who are without any family support.  I see their distress, and I can give them the calm they need.  Pray that My presence will overwhelm them with peace in the midst of this storm.

PSALM 23

Friday, May 1, 2020

CURRENT

I know you like to keep up with the current news.  Some people feel like My Word is out dated and not current.  However, such people have never read the entire Bible.  Many of the prophesies in the Old Covenant speak exactly about what is happening right now throughout the world.

When the disciples asked Me when the end would come, I gave them the signs of My coming to establish My kingdom on Earth.  They did not understand because they were thinking of an earthly kingdom that would happen in their day to deliver them from the oppression of Rome.

I am coming soon and as you read what I told the disciples about the beginning of sorrows, you will discover that you are living in that time.  You cannot know the time of My coming, but you can know the season.  You are in that season now.  Read My Word daily to get current news.

MATTHEW 24

Thursday, April 30, 2020

CONSIDER

Use the time that I have given you as you shelter in place to consider not only My purpose in allowing this virus crisis, but also your purpose during this time.

Your words and actions are recorded in your Book of Life. You have one or more assignments that I want you to accomplish each day.  As you take time to inquire of My Holy Spirit, He will guide you to accomplish those assignments.

I know you pray every day," Lord, help me to be on the same page that you are on today in my Book of Life."  This is a good prayer.  Open your spiritual ears daily to hear My instructions.  This is exactly what I did when I was on Earth.  My Father gave Me assignments daily and then He gave Me the power to accomplish them.

1 THESSALONIANS 5:24

CONTEND

The spiritual warfare will increase as the days draw near to My second coming.  I want you to always be sure to place My blood over all your loved ones and yourself and also to use the keys to the kingdom that I have given you.

The keys to the kingdom are binding and loosing.  I play a huge part in this warfare.  As you know, I defeated Satan on the cross, but you still have to deal with him and his demons because you live in a fallen world that was given over to Satan in the garden.  Satan is the God of this world.

I want you to release the battles to Me as you intercede in warfare with the confidence that I will contend with those who contend with you.  However, you are also to resist the devil and his demons by binding and loosing.  The words you speak on Earth will set My angels in motion to help you.

MATTHEW 16:19:18:18;  ISAIAH 49:25; 2 CHRONICLES 20

ATTENTION

There were two instructions I gave to My disciples to prepare them for the time that I would no longer be physically with them.  I told them to watch and pray.  I wanted them to watch out for the devil because he would never quit trying to draw their attention away from their calling to go into all the world and preach My good news after I went to My Father.. 

Distraction is one of the major tools of my enemy.  Now that you are still sheltered in your homes, the distractions of life are fewer than before.  Do not waste this time.

Draw near to Me, and I will draw near to you. I have given you ample time to pray and to enjoy My presence.  I am trying to get your attention now that you do not have so many things to tend to.

MARK 14:38

Monday, April 27, 2020

PRESSURE

It is common to do things in haste when you are under pressure.  You can see this clearly in My Word.  When Abraham was under pressure to have a child, Sarah gave Hagar, an Egyptian, to have his child, and Ishmael was born.  Thus the Arab/Israel conflict began and still exists today.

This is only one example of how an act in haste when a person is under pressure to go ahead of Me can end in results that will affect generations.  One of the major tactics of My enemy is to put pressure on people so that they will not ask Me for wisdom.  Instead, they go ahead with their own plans.

Pilate was pressured by the people to crucify Me.  Pray for those in governing positions during this virus crisis to not give into pressure in order to please the people.  Pray that they will seek My wisdom as they consider opening their states, counties, and cities once again to the public.

GENESIS 16:2; MATTHEW 27:24

SEEK

I have promised that if you seek first the kingdom of God, then all these things shall be added unto you.  The things I spoke of were material things like food, shelter, clothing.  You are in a season where many of you are doubting what your future will hold.

This virus crisis you are experiencing has caused many to lose their jobs and the question many are asking is, "Will I still have my old job when this crisis is over?" 

Things become very important in life when you are without a way to purchase them.  I want you to seek Me and My kingdom first and then the things that are truly necessary in your life will be supplied.  I am Jehovah- Jireh, your "Provider."  My kingdom is not meat and drink.  It is righteousness, peace, and joy in My Spirit. When you have those three things, you will be fulfilled even when other things are in short supply.

MATTHEW 6:28-34

Saturday, April 25, 2020

OPEN

I know that you are looking forward to the day when all of the businesses, stores, churches, schools, and other places will be open so that you can go to these places without fear.

During this time when you were sheltered in your home, I gave you an open door to spend more time with Me than you usually do.  I provided an open door for you to cultivate more intimacy with Me and also more dependency upon Me.

When you are able to open your door and go to the places that you used to go, I trust you will still open your heart to Me, and allow Me to speak to you and direct your path.  My Holy Spirit never forces the door to your heart to stay open to hear Him lead, guide, and teach you.  The choice will be  yours to keep the door to your heart open.

REVELATION 3:20

SET

When a runner is at the Starting Line, the coach says, "Ready, Get Set, Go."  You and all believers at this time are at the "Get Set Stage."  The time will come when you will go to see Me face to face.  Until that time, I am helping you get set for your departure from the starting line to the Finish Line.

I am setting My body of believers on Earth in just the position they need to be for My return.  I did not cause this virus crisis, but I am using it to perfect My body on Earth. I am perfecting their prayer life, their dependency upon Me, and all their concerns.

Remember when Mary chose to sit at My feet and listen to My Word. I told Martha that she was "careful and troubled about many things, but one thing is needful: and Mary chose the good part that will not be taken away from her." I have given you time to sit at My feet and that is your "Get Set Time."

LUKE 10:39-42

Thursday, April 23, 2020

ALLOW

The question I often hear is, "If God is such a loving God, then why does He allow suffering?" I want to share that My Father is a loving, merciful God, and I came to Earth to reveal His true character to all those who would believe.

As you read about My life in the pages of the gospel writers, you will see that I had all power to heal everyone.  However, I did not heal everyone.  I only healed those who God had willed that I heal.  I prayed every morning before dawn and sometimes spent all night in prayer to receive instructions from My Father.  I only did what My Father told Me to do and I only said what My Father told Me to say.  My meat was to do My Father's will.

My Father has chosen prayer as the vehicle to access His power on Earth.  This is why it is so important that you diligently pray during this virus crisis.  I purchased you complete access to My throne room when I shed My blood to forgive you of all of your sins. PRAY, PRAY, PRAY with faith and you will see miracles.

MARK 1:35; JOHN 4:4

Wednesday, April 22, 2020

NAME

The day will come when every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that I am Lord.  Pray for those who do not know Me to accept My offer of salvation before that day.  Until that time, I want you to use My name whenever you pray.

I told My disciples that earlier in My teaching ministry they had asked nothing in My name, but I exhorted them to begin to use My name when they prayed. I told them that whatever they asked the Father in My name that He would give it to them so that My Father would be glorified.

As you are praying for this virus crisis to come to an end, I want you to ask the Father in My name.  When you do this, My Father will be glorified as He grants your request.  My Word promises that just as surely as I live, all the Earth will be filled with My glory.  This day will be hastened as you diligently pray.

JOHN 14:13-14, 16:24;

SOLID

Faith is a solid substance.  When Israel crossed the Red Sea, they walked on solid, dry ground while the Red Seas was a wall of water on both sides of them. When Joshua crossed over the Jordan River, he sent the priests first. It was a season when the Jordan was at its highest level.  As the priests took each step, they were able to walk on solid, dry ground.

When Jesus saw the distress of the disciples in the storm, as He took each step the water became solid. You are in a season with this virus crisis that you need to take steps of faith as you intercede for your nation and the world.

The Highway to Heaven is called "Faith."  The substance that that highway is paved with is the Word of God with all of its promises.  During this crisis, I want you to declare My promises out loud.  Each promise declared is a step closer to Me, and I am the solid rock that you can stand on right now.

HEBREWS 11:1

Sunday, April 19, 2020

EXTREME

As you read My Word, you will see how sometimes My Father activated extreme methods to draw His people, Israel, back to Him.  Those methods had to be extreme in order for His people to wake up and see their own sin.

The season you are in with this virus crisis is a wake up call to My body on Earth.  My Father did not cause it, but He did allow it to make all those in the world and especially in My body on Earth wake to realization that they have many idols.

You may think you do not have idols.  However, what you think about the most is your idol.  This extreme crisis is to allow you time to get rid of your idolatry and put Me first.  I will heal your land.  This is My promise if you will turn away from your idols and worship Me alone.

PSALM 96:5; 106:36; ISAIAH 2:8


Saturday, April 18, 2020

HOME

Hopefully, during this virus crisis you can still say, "Home Sweet Home,"  It has been a long season of sheltering in place.  My Word exhorts believers to both give thanks for everything and in everything.

You can be thankful during this season that you have a home.  There are many who do not.  Many are out on the streets with little shelter. When I walked on Earth, I spent much time camping out with few supplies.  Pray for the homeless during this season.

You can also give thanks for a loving family.  You are probably closer to your family than ever before.  I trust you are closer to Me than ever before.  You have time now with your family, and you are in touch with family members that are sheltered in other places.  There are many who are all alone.  Pray that those who are all alone will feel My presence and My loving touch on them.

EPHESIANS 5:20; 1 THESSALONIANS 5:18

REVERSE/REHEARSE

The word, "Rehearse," means to "tell in detail; to narrate or describe in detail in sequence and at length."  The day will come when your life on Earth will be rehearsed.  Every idle word you have spoken while on Earth is recorded.

This will happen when you are judged for reward.  Your life will flash before you, and that knowledge may cause you to be ashamed.  However, the good news is that there is no shame in heaven. 

I reversed all you did and said on Earth from a curse to a blessing.  Yes, I became a curse for you so that you are no longer cursed.  You are accepted as My beloved.  When all is revealed about your life, I will be embracing you with My love and saying as each scene comes before you, "I have forgiven you."

GALATIANS 3:13; EPHESIANS 1:6

Wednesday, April 15, 2020

RESIST

My Word says to resist the devil and he will flee from you.  The first step has to always be taken before you resist the devil.  That step is to submit to Me by humbling yourself, confessing your sins to Me, and casting all your cares upon Me.  I am the One Who does battle for you, and when you submit yourself to Me, I can operate through you as  you use your weapons of warfare.

Your weapons of warfare are not carnal. They are supernatural.  The weapons of your warfare are My name, My blood, My full armor, My Word declared out loud, and all kinds of prayer.  As you draw near to Me, I will reveal to you what weapon to use to resist My enemy.

During this time of sheltering in your homes, I want you to use your time to draw close to Me.  I want you to resist the temptation to waste this time that I have given you to be with Me.  In My presence is fullness of joy, and My joy will strengthen you to continue to be faithful to abide in Me, abide in My Word, and abide in My love.

JAMES 4:6-10

HOSPITALS

Pray for all of your hospital workers who are risking their lives as they care for the sick.  When I walked on Earth, I healed whoever I encountered during the day.  I was not able to heal the multitudes, but I was able to feed them.

I spent much time before sunrise to talk with My heavenly Father.  He had special assignments for Me during each day.  I listened for His voice and I only did the things He told Me to do, and I only said the things that He wanted Me to say.

Pray for your hospital workers to seek My wisdom and direction during each day they spend caring for the ill during this virus crisis.  Pray that they will hear the still quiet voice of My Holy Spirit Who leading and directing them.  I want you also to fine tune your ability to hear My voice as you read My Word and seek the direction of My Spirit. I have many assignments for you also.

MARK 1:35

POWERLESS

Whenever you feel powerless to change circumstances. remember that prayer is the strength of the powerless.  Prayer changes things.

You have something in common today with every nation, and it is not just the virus crisis. What your nation has in common with all other nations is people who are crying out to Me in prayer.

The confidence that you can have in the power of prayer is that if you pray anything according to My will, I will not only hear your prayer, but I will grant your request.  I came to Earth to give life, not death.  When you pray for Me to heal your nation, I hear your prayer and I will grant your request.

1 JOHN 5:14-15

UMBRELLAS

I want all who believe in Me to close their umbrellas.  There has to be a latter rain in order for the last harvest to take place.  The only thing that stands in the way of this latter rain is the umbrella of pride that so many of My beloved have opened.

Pride seeks its own way and wants to do things that will pleasure them and elevate them instead of magnifying Me. Pride causes covetousness and greed.  Pride causes rebellion.  Take down your umbrella of pride now.

I am crying out to My Holy nation, My royal priesthood, to take down their umbrellas and then raise your hands and cry out to Me.  Raised hands symbolize surrender and trust.  Surrender yourself and the members of your bodies today to be used as instruments of My love, joy, and peace. Trust Me to fill you afresh with a powerful anointing from My Spirit and you will be used in this last great harvest.

JEREMIAH 5:24-25; HOSEA 6:3; JOEL 2:12-23

LIFT

I promised that if I be lifted  up that I will draw all men unto Me.  I was lifted up on that day when I surrendered to the will of My Father and was crucified.  The soldiers that nailed Me to the tree had no idea that they were fulfilling a prophecy from long ago.

The drawing power I have by My Holy Spirit is that I became sin so that the whole world would have the opportunity to be forgiven of their sins and receive My righteousness that opens the door to have right standing with My Holy Father.

Every day that you live, you have the opportunity to lift Me up before men.  You can do this by praying for others, giving to and forgiving others with My love, and sharing the gospel with others.  There are hungry souls who are waiting to hear this good news.  Even though you cannot be with others with the exception of your own families during your sheltering in place, you can reach out to others by phone or by prayer. Lift Me up before others today.

JOHN 12:32; 3:14-1,8:28

WALK

Many of My teachings were given as I walked around the Sea of Galilee.  As I walked, I also taught the disciples like the time I came upon the fig tree that had no fruit.  I was walking in the vineyards when I shared the truth that I am the vine and those who believe in Me are the branches.

Even though you have the orders to shelter in your homes, I want you to take walks with Me outside.  As we walk together, be open to hear My voice. Talk with Me and give Me all of your concerns. I want to perfect everything that is a concern to you.

You may even want to establish these walks with Me after the virus crisis has passed.  Remember I revealed myself to the couple who were on the road after My resurrection. Observing the beauty of creation as you walk will enable you to draw closer to Me.

JOHN 15;5; MATTHEW 21:19; PSALM 138:8

ENDURANCE

I know you are thinking that you cannot endure one more minute of this virus crisis.  Let Me remind you of what My brother James wrote:  "My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into divers trials; knowing this that the trying of you faith works patience, but let patience have its perfect work so that you may be perfect and entire wanting nothing (James 1:2-4)"
 
This crisis is about perfecting the faith of My body on Earth (every believer who confesses Me as their Lord and their Savior), so that they will be ready for the last great harvest before I come.

Every trial you experience is a test of your faith.  I want My church (My body of believers) to have their faith perfected and completed before I come again.  I want you to allow patience (endurance) to have its perfect and complete work in you. You let patience have its perfect work in you by remaining in joy throughout this crisis.  I know you can do this as you abide in Me, My Word, and My love.  I have faith in you.

JAMES 1:2-4; JOHN 15:5-11

STIMULUS

Your government recently released a stimulus package to spur the economy during this virus crisis. This will give business owners, manufacturers, and even families the incentive to keep moving ahead even though the interruption to the economy has really slowed it down.

I want you to use this time when you have to be sheltered in your homes to seek My face.  You have a stimulus package of My promises to spur you on in your faith.  When you declare these promises, your faith will be stimulated.

Here is a promise that you can meditate on today and in the morning.  I am able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that you ask or think according to the power that works within you.
I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.  These two promises will stimulate not only your faith, but also your trust in Me.

EPHESIANS 4:20; 2 TIMOTHY 1:7

Monday, April 6, 2020

FAVOR

Sometimes when you may lack confidence in your job or in a job interview, I want you to remember this promise.  "Favor surrounds the righteous as a shield."

You have been made righteous because you received Me as your Lord, and Savior and I have cleansed you of all of your sins.  You now have right standing with My Father because of My perfect sacrifice for you. When My Father sees you, He sees you through rose-colored glasses that are stained with My blood.

Know always that I am your confidence and that there is nothing to hard for Me.  I also hold the keys of David and can both open doors and shut them.  As you yield yourself to My Spirit, I will speak through you to others, and you will have favor both with man and with Me.

PSALM 5:12

Sunday, April 5, 2020

REPRESENT

I want you to carefully look at the word I gave you this morning.  "Re/present" has a meaning that I want to share with you.  The word, "present" is in this word.  I want you to represent Me during this crisis time.

I have given you the greatest present anyone could ever receive.  I died on the cross to forgive you of  your sins and to give you eternal life.  This is such great news.  I want you to represent Me as you share this great present with others.

Those who do not have an intimate relationship with Me are in fear right now.  I want you to share how the present you received from Me many years ago has changed your life and delivered you from fear.  Gift those you think need to come to know Me with this wonderful present that will also change their lives.

JOHN 3:16-17; 2 CORINTHIANS 5:20

Saturday, April 4, 2020

DECLINE

I know that you and many others are praying for a decline in the number of cases and the number of deaths due to the worldwide virus you are experiencing.

As you lift your prayers to Me, I intercede to My Father on your behalf.  Be confident that I have heard your prayers because it is not My will that people die before their time.  Your book of life records both the date of  your birth and the date of your death.

I do now hold the keys to death and hell.  Your intercession at this time will avail much because I have promised that if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and heal their land.

2 CHRONICLES 7:14

REJOICE

My beloved Paul gave many reasons why he was rejoicing even while he was bound and in prison.  I know that some of you feel like you are in prison since you have to stay in your homes during this pandemic.  It might be uplifting to review reasons why Paul was able to rejoice even in hard circumstances.

Here are just a few: He rejoiced that the gospel was being preached and that I would be magnified in his body whether he lived or died. He rejoiced in the hope that he would see the church in Philippi. You also can rejoice knowing that you once again will be able to fellowship face to face with your church and that through technology you can even fellowship while you are in your home.

He rejoiced that one day he would be able to fellowship with Me face to face, but for now he rejoiced that he could worship Me in the Spirit and know My presence with him. He rejoiced in their care for him. Joy comes as we care for others.  Reach out in some way to someone and share that you care.

PHILIPPIANS 1-4

REINSTATE

Many people are hoping that the conditions they were living in before the pandemic will be reinstated. Realistically, this will not be the case.  Many will be out of jobs, and life simply will not ever be the same again.

I want you to pray effective prayers during these days that those who are called by My name will become dependent upon My Holy Spirit to lead and guide them moment by moment.  There will be a great need for My body on Earth to esteem others higher than themselves and to truly love others as I love them.

The mark of true believers is their love for others.  My prayer is that My body will depend upon My Spirit to show them how they can reach out to others during and after this pandemic is over.

1 JOHN 4 :7-13; JOHN 13:34

RECALL

Often there are recalls for cars and equipment that are not safe.  Whoever made the cars or the equipment is responsible to fix what was wrong.  Discoveries for certain recalls sometimes do not occur until there is an accident or even a loss of life.

The discovery of this virus came too late for there to be any chance for a fix. There was no way there could be a recall.  During this virus crisis, there are many researchers trying to find a vaccine or a cure.  Pray for these researchers to seek Me for answers because I am all wisdom.

This pandemic is right now out of control.  I want My body on Earth  to recall what is written in My Word.  Nothing is impossible for Me and through Me all things are possible.  Cry out to Me during these days of restriction, and I will answer your cry.  Throughout My Word, I always responded to the sincere cry of My people.  Recall these truths, and have faith that there will be an end to this crisis.

1 CORINTHIANS 1:30; MATTHEW 19:26

Monday, March 30, 2020

MAGNIFY

When there are mountains in your life such as this virus that has invaded the world,  I want you t o speak to the mountain.  I want you to magnify Me with your mouth.

When you magnify Me with your mouth, the mountains will melt and become as chaff.  I have made you a sharp threshing instrument having teeth to beat the mountains and make them small.

During this crisis, My enemy wants to magnify the negative reports.  Fight fear by magnifying Me and My name. Let  your mouth be filled with My praise and with My honor all the day.

ISAIAH 41:15; PSALM 71:8

Sunday, March 29, 2020

THANKSGIVING

This is a time to cry out to Me.  Paul exhorted the church to "Be anxious for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."
One of the definitions of supplication is loud crying.

As you cry out to Me in these days, be sure to include thanksgiving as part of your prayers.  When you thank Me as you make your requests, you are demonstrating your faith in this truth that I not only have heard your prayers, but I have also granted your requests.

Today, I want you to think of several things that you can thank Me for even in the midst of this crisis.
Think about how I am using this crisis to draw people together rather than apart.

PHILIPPIANS 4:6; 1 JOHN 5:14-15

Saturday, March 28, 2020

PROMISE

During this time when so many are fearful and worried about the pandemic that is taking place worldwide, fill yourself with My promises.  All the promises I make, I fulfill.  Review  the promises that I have spoken in My Word like, "I will be with you always even until the end of the world."

Every promise is yes and amen in Me.  The first part of the word, "pandemic," is "pan."  A god that many worshiped long ago was a god called Pan. The origin of the word, "panic," is rooted in the name of this god.

In these days, I do not want you to panic or be fearful.  My Word contains more than 365 exhortations to be not afraid.  When you spend more time reviewing My promises instead of listening to the latest news, My peace will invade your soul.

2 CORINTHIANS 1:20; MATTHEW 28:20

Friday, March 27, 2020

FRANCHISE

I gave you this unusual English word this morning for a reason. The word, "franchise," means freedom from restrictions. It also can mean a special right that is given to a person or group of people.

When I died to forgive you of all of your sins (past, present, and future), My Father gave you the right to receive My righteousness in exchange for your own self-righteousness. 

Sin always brings death and the right to be forgiven all of your sins that I purchased for you with My own shed blood means that you have been liberated to enjoy life (abundant life on Earth that extends to eternal life). My Father sent Me into the world so that whoever believes in Me might be saved. I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No man comes to the Father but by Me.

JOHN 3:16-17, JOHN 14:6

Thursday, March 26, 2020

MISINTERPRET

With all that is going on as you listen to various opinions about this worldwide virus, it is so easy to misinterpret what is being said.  There are many rumors and misinformation.  Even the factual information is hard to interpret.

I want you focus on what will lift you up at this time instead of drowning yourself in the media, news, and bad reports. Put your focus on Me, and then seek wisdom from the principles and promises that are contained in My Word.

Wisdom is applied knowledge.  Before you read My Word, ask My Holy Spirit to interpret it to you, and then there will be no misinterpretation.  My disciples often misinterpreted the words I told them, but after My Spirit became alive within them, what I told them before finally was interpreted correctly.

MATTHEW 16:5-12

Wednesday, March 25, 2020

RESILIENT

During this time of trial, I want you to have resilient faith.  The definition of resilience is the ability to bounce back after being pressed and stretched.  It is the ability to recover strength and to have good humor spiritually even during trials.

As you look to Me, you can receive this resilient faith.  Paul wrote: "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life that I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.  You live by My faith within you.

I gave Myself to you so that you can have resilient faith.  It is only through depending upon Me during this crisis that you will be able to bounce back after being pressed to the limit.  Press into Me in prayer today, and receive from Me the resilient faith you need, not only to get through this crisis, but also to receive My peace, love, and joy in the midst of this crisis.

GALATIANS 2:20

Tuesday, March 24, 2020

POLLUTION

Whenever there is pollution in the atmosphere, it is difficult to see two feet in front of you.  There is pollution in the atmosphere right now during this virus crisis.  My enemy is the prince and power of the air, and he loves to pollute the atmosphere.

Right now he is polluting the atmosphere with words that cause panic through the media and through what people are saying.  Curses are negative words pronounced over others.  Daily such curses are being spoken over you and others in this world.

Only My Word declared out loud can break those curses.  Today clear the atmosphere around you by singing praise songs and hymns that declare My might and power.  Read Psalm 91 and Psalm 65 out loud today and whatever heaviness or fear My enemy as sent you will clear the atmosphere.

EPHESIANS 2:2; PSALM 65, 91

Monday, March 23, 2020

FAMILY

My Father, the Holy Spirit, and I were the first family.  We all work together as One, and we are all God.  God is love and without others, we have no one to love. I am a relational God.

When asked what was the greatest commandment, I responded: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all  your mind. This is the first and great commandment.  And the second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

You were created in My image which means you were created to be in a family.  I told Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply.  All those who believe in Me as their Lord and Savior and receive the forgiveness for their sins become My sons and My daughters.  During this crisis, I want My sons and daughters to gather unto Me to praise Me because you all are accepted as My beloved family.

MATTHEW 22:36-39; EPHESIANS 1:6

Sunday, March 22, 2020

TENDER

During these tenuous times when there is so much unknown about the virus that is causing many deaths throughout the world, I want you to remember that I am your "Good Shepherd." I will deal tenderly with My sheep.

I know you have read Psalm 23 many times, but I want you to meditate on the phrase: "Thy rod and Thy staff will comfort you."  Comfort is what you need at this moment in history.

The rod that a shepherd carries is used to protect his sheep from danger.  The staff is used to get sheep that are about to stray back on the right path.  The right path I want you to follow during this crisis is the path of trust.  I want you to trust Me with all of your heart.  Be assured that I am watching over you and will do everything in My power to give you the security and comfort you need at this time.

PSALM 23


Saturday, March 21, 2020

DARTS

During this crisis in the world, My enemy is firing countless darts against people.  Paul exhorted believers to put on the full armor of God by lifting the shield of faith that is able to quench every fiery dart.

Those fiery darts are negative words that are being broadcast through the media and through people who are not walking closely with Me.  It is true that what is happening in the world is a definite crisis, but My enemy wants to achieve panic in every person on Earth by sending a barrage of negative words into the atmosphere.

Today, be careful what you say to others about this crisis.  First of all, get your heart right with Me by receiving My love, peace, and joy that is daily available to you as you spend time in My presence.  This is a time in history that My beloved need to be sending prayer missiles into the atmosphere by declaring My Word and words that edify and transmit faith and hope.

EPHESIANS 6:16

Friday, March 20, 2020

CEASE

I want you to pray without ceasing.  Ask My Holy Spirit to help you do this throughout your day today.  Praying without ceasing becomes a natural way of life when you listen carefully to the gentle promptings of My Spirit.

During the day certain names will come to your mind while you are doing your routine work.  When those names come to you, pray for that person.  Whenever  you get a phone call from someone, pray quietly in the Spirit as that person speaks to you.

Of course, singing and praising Me is a way of communicating with Me all the day long.  As you listen to praise music, enter in and sing those songs with Me.  Always remember to commit your day, your way, your works, your will, your emotions and your family to Me in the morning.  When you do this, My Spirit then can help you pray without ceasing.

1 THESSALONIANS 5:17


Thursday, March 19, 2020

NEAR

This is a time in your life when you are intently praying for those who are near and dear to you to be protected from receiving the virus that is now sweeping the world.

During this time, I want you to recognize how near I am to you and also to realize how dear you are to Me.  I love you with an everlasting, empowering PERFECT LOVE that is able to cast out every fear you may have during this crisis.

I exhorted My disciples not to be  afraid.  Fear is an enemy that can paralyze you, confuse you, and cause you to take actions that are not wise.  I want you to draw near to Me during this crisis so that you can receive My love that is powerful enough to see you through this crisis and every trial you may face in the future.

PHILIPPIANS 4:5; 1 JOHN 4:18

Wednesday, March 18, 2020

GATHERINGS

During this time when it is recommended that you not have gatherings of more than ten people because of the precautions against spreading the virus that has attacked the world. I want you to take advantage of this time, and use it to gather yourselves to pray and worship Me.

Your prayers will avail much.  If you are single,and live alone, it may not be convenient to have friends over, but you could reach out to your friends by phone and share times of prayer together.

There are always things to be thankful for at times like these.  You can be thankful that you are still able to meet in homes for prayer since many in persecuted lands cannot.  Also, this is a time to communicate more with your family and friends. This Sunday and this Shabbot, I suggest that you have a family service of worship in your homes.  The early church thrived because they daily met together to break bread and pray.

ACTS 2:42


Tuesday, March 17, 2020

SET

There is no time or space in eternity.  However, you live where there are set times.  As you read My Word, you will soon discover that there are set times throughout the scriptures.

There was a set time for Sarah to deliver her child.  There was a set time for Me to have mercy on Zion.  This was a time of favor that I planned for Israel.

You asked Me if there is a set time for this virus pandemic to end.  The whole world is in a panic mode over this vicious virus, but My set time for you is to pray without ceasing and ask My Holy Spirit to help you pray effectively against the spread of this virus.

GENESIS 17:21; PSALM 102:13; ROMANS 8:26

NEWS

When you read the news in your age, there are many reports of tornadoes, earthquakes, famine, epidemics, wars and rumors of wars and pestilences that are occurring all over the world.  I told My disciples that just before I come again, there would be an increase of these tragedies.

I described these times as the beginning of sorrows.  The whole earth seems to be in travail awaiting My return and just as a woman in labor experiences more rapid and more intense pain before she delivers, so this Earth is in labor awaiting the delivery of My return.

There is, however, only one sign that must be fulfilled before My kingdom will come on Earth.  That sign is that this gospel will be preached to every nation before I return.  Meditate on that good news today, and this good news will help drown out the floods of adversity that are coming upon the Earth.

MATTHEW 24:6-8, 14

Friday, March 13, 2020

AVOID

I want you to avoid allowing yourself to get into strife with another person.  Strife is the platform that my enemy uses to wound even those you love.  When you are in strife, you will say things that you wish later you could take back.

The source of strife is pride.  You feel you are in the right, but even if you are, you never have to prove your point.  A haughty spirit can control your words when you allow strife in your life.

To pull down that haughty spirit that so easily rises up in your flesh from time to time, spend more time in My presence.  I am the only One Who can teach you meekness and lowliness of heart. When you learn meekness and lowliness of heart, you will be able to find rest for your soul.

MATTHEW 11:28-30

Thursday, March 12, 2020

KINGDOM

I taught My disciples to pray, "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on Earth as it is in heaven." When you pray this part of the prayer many call "The Lord's prayer," you are praying for My Father to gather together in one all things in Me, both  those things in heaven and those things on Earth.

This great plan of My Father to gather all things in Me will only happen in the dispensation of the fullness of times.  Until that day, you are able to experience the benefits of being in Me every day of your life.

The kingdom of God is My righteousness, peace, and joy. Rejoice today because by faith you have already received Me as your Lord and Savior and you are already in Me. Daily you can now experience My righteousness, peace, and joy.

EPHESIANS 1:10; ROMANS 14:17

Wednesday, March 11, 2020

VOICE

My message on Earth was exactly the same message that was given to Moses to present to the children of Israel.  As you read the Torah, you will find that there are only two things necessary for you to do daily in order to be blessed.  Those two things are to hear My voice and obey My voice.

I shared the parable of the seeds with My disciples, and that parable was all about the way you hear.  Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.  Four conditions of the soil where the seed fell represent the condition of your heart.

Many people read My Word, but they do not have fruitful, blessed lives because their hearts are cluttered with worldly thoughts and worldly lusts.  Today and every day, I want you to ask My Holy Spirit to clear the clutter out of your mind and your heart so that you can hear My voice as I speak to you through My Word and by My Spirit.

EXODUS 23:22; ROMANS 10:17; LUKE 8:10-18

REASON

No one on Earth will ever be exempt from trials.  Trials can occur because you failed to ask Me for wisdom.  You also go through trials because you live in a fallen world that is on a steady course to destruction.

The main reason I allow trials is to show forth My glory. I love to show Myself strong on behalf of every person who goes through trials. Trials offer you the opportunity  to depend on and trust in Me more than ever before. 

Every trial is a test of your faith, and your faith will deepen if you abide in My Word during a trial. My goal for you as you experience trials is that patience will have its perfect work in you causing the fruit of long suffering and self-control to be perfected in you so that you lack nothing. These are just a few reasons why you can rejoice in the midst of trials.

JAMES 1:2-4

Thursday, March 5, 2020

STEDFAST

After I ascended to heaven, My body on Earth continued doing what they did while I walked on Earth.  They were stedfast in My Word, in breaking bread, and in prayer.

I want you to continue as My followers did long ago.  Abide in My Word daily, have fellowship with one another as you meet for prayer and the study of My Word. 

When you look at this week, I want you to take every opportunity to fellowship and break bread with others as you meet together to study My Word and to pray with one another.  When you do this, you will be walking in My light day by day.

ACTS 2:42; 1 JOHN 1:7

Wednesday, March 4, 2020

REFRESH

The computer that you use daily to communicate and receive information is very much like your brain. Often as you are working on your personal computer, you need to refresh the page that you have pulled up.

Each day of your life represents a page in your "Book of Life"that was written in heaven.  Before the foundation of the Earth, I had a designated design for many works that I wanted you to accomplish in your brief time on Earth. 

Pray daily for My Holy Spirit to help you be on the same page that I am. Refresh the page of your spiritual computer by spending time in My Word.  Time in My Word is well spent because during that time your mind is renewed.

EPHESIANS 1:4, 2:20; PSALM 139:16


Tuesday, March 3, 2020

CLARITY

Some people have great difficulty understanding My Word. Spiritual things make no sense to the carnal mind.  The faith to believe in Me will come only as a person hears My Word.  Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.

Before you share My good news with others, pray for the Holy Spirit to prepare their hearts to not only hear My Word, but also to believe and receive My Word.  Faith is a gift that only My Spirit can give. 

Clarity of both mind and heart will come to those who continue in My Word.  I said that only those who continue in My Word will be My disciples and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free..  Daily allow My Spirit to teach you as you study My Word. The entrance of My Word will give light and clarity to your mind.  "The entrance of My Word gives light; it gives understanding to the simple."

ROMANS 10:17; JOHN 8:31-32; PSALM 119:30

BEAUTIFUL

Psalm 48 is a psalm that describes mount Zion and how it is situated in an elevated position on the sides of the north.  However, the phrase beautiful for situation is also a description of Me.  I am beautiful for every situation you may face in this life.

Whatever situation you may find yourself in today, I want you to know that I am and always will be able to reveal My beauty to you even in the midst of a troubling situation.

I am the joy of the whole Earth, and it is My joy that will sustain you through whatever trial you may encounter.  Receive strength today as you spend time in My presence.  In My presence is fullness of joy and pleasures forever more.

PSALM 48:2, 16:11

Wednesday, February 19, 2020

EXTREME

The weather this past season has been extreme.  Also the climate in Washington has also been extreme.  I want you to always remember Who is in control of the weather and also Who puts leaders in high places.

As you read My Word, you will see that it is within My power to withhold rain and to send it.  It is also in My power to promote or demote leaders.

I have the power to soften extremely hard hearts.  Remembering that I have extreme control over everything.will encourage you to release every burden and care to Me.  I am the author and finisher of your faith.  As you face this day, know without a doubt that I care for you.

JOB 12:15; PSALM 84:11, 75:6

SAVINGS

Most of your financial planners advise that you keep a certain amount of money in a savings account as an emergency fund  to be used whenever something needs repair in your car or your house..  This is good advice for your earthly finances, but I have the best savings, emergency fund that you can draw from at any time.

 I counseled My disciples to store up treasures in heaven rather than on Earth.  I have a treasure storehouse in heaven that I can easily access for you when you have an emergency.

 As you are faithful to tithe into My storehouse in heaven, I will rebuke the devourer for you so that you will not have many household emergencies.

MATTHEW 6:19; MALACHI 3:10-11

FORCE

There are angel armies all around you.  You cannot see them, but they are there.  I am the Captain of this heavenly hosts.  I do not want you to ever feel alone.  Thank Me daily for the angels I have assigned to you.  One day you will meet them.

Elisha's  servant was frightened because a great army was coming against them, but then I opened the servants eyes to see the hosts of angels in chariots all around them.

Thank Me today for this heavenly force that is around you.  It is true that My adversary is the prince and power of the air, but I have an air force that is much more powerful.

2 KINGS 6:15-17

Friday, February 14, 2020

CONTROL

So many people think that they are in control of their own lives and that they can control other people's lives.  No one on earth is in control or their life..  Every day you have two choices.  Do you want Me to be in control of your life or do you want My adversary to be in control of your life?

If you choose to have Me control of your life, you daily need to surrender your life to Me.  First you must surrender your will to Me just as I surrendered my own will to My Father's will when I agonized in the garden just before I died to forgive all of your sins.

If you choose not to surrender your will to Me, then you will do your own will which will be influenced greatly by My adversary.  When you walk in the flesh, you are an open target for My adversary.  Today choose to surrender your will to Me, and you will not fulfill the lusts of your own flesh.

GALATIANS 5:16

INVITATION

I give you My personal invitation to come before My throne room daily.  It seems strange to Me that people turn down that invitation to communicate with Me.  Who in the world would turn down an invitation to present themselves before an earthly king?

I am your Heavenly King who flung the stars of the universe into place and Who named every star.  I am able to turn hearts towards Me just as I am able to turn the waters in the river courses. 

When you do answer My daily invitation, I want you to pray with great confidence that I not only hear your prayers, but I also will answer your requests.  When you pray anything according to My will, I will always respond with the answer.  Do not miss your audience today with Me, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

1 JOHN 5:14-15

RUSH

People seem to be in such a rush these days.  They seldom take time just to sit down and communicate with Me.  Of course, you can communicate with Me throughout your day because I am with you always.

There is great value in taking maybe 10 minutes every two hours in your day to reflect upon My nearness to you, and to be refreshed by My Holy Spirit.  I recommend that you take some time while you are having your first cup of coffee to ask My Spirit to remind you of a song or a hymn, a Psalm,  Proverb, or a promise that you can meditate on throughout your day.

This morning I gave you the old hymn: "Take Time To Be Holy."  The first verse is: "Take time to be holy. Speak oft with your God. Abide in Him only and feed on His Word."  Good advice for you on a Monday as you begin your work week.

PSALM 16:11, 138:2


Sunday, February 9, 2020

SPARE TIME

When I walked on Earth, I had much more spare time than you have.  Busy housewives have to clean, wash clothes, cook and shuttle children back and forth to lessons and sports events. Men work 8 hours a day.

I never had to cook, wash clothes, clean my home because I did not have one and My only work was doing the will of My Father..  People like Mary and Martha took care of my needs.  I told someone who wanted to follow Me that I did not even have any place to lay My head.

Everyone is given the same amount of time, but what you do in your spare time will make all the difference in your life.  It is important to take some time for yourself like reading a good book.  May I suggest that the best book you can read is the Bible.  You also need to have fellowship with others, but do not forget to fellowship with Me.  In fact, you do not need spare time to do that because I am with you always.  Just talk with Me throughout your busy day.

MATTHEW 8:20

GOOD

I want you to keep looking ahead with a heart filled with faith.  Faith resides in your heart. Even though your faith can only be demonstrated in the present moment, I do want you to stretch out your faith by expecting Me to be your "Good Shepherd," Who will lovingly care for you in the future.

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen. Hope is the expectation of good.  When I walked on Earth,  a man, called Me "Good Master."  I asked him why he called Me good, and I told him that there was none good but God.

The good news is that you are hid with Me in My Father's heart.  This means you are doubly blessed because My Father's goodness can now live within your heart because My love can fill your heart to overflow.  Good fruits will come in your life when you depend upon My goodness within you.

HEBREWS 11:1; MATTHEW 19:16-17
