Don’t fall into the comparison trap. Comparison kills contentment. You are a unique creation of the God of the universe. There is a portion of God’s glory only you can reflect. There are good works God created in advance just for you to do. The enemy wants to keep you focused on what other people do, what they look like, what their gifts are, and what they have that you don’t have or what they don’t have that you do because he understands that when you get ahold of the truth of how much the Lord has blessed you with, realize your gifts, talents and potential, and begin to see yourself as fearfully and wonderfully made, you will begin to blossom into the person He had in mind when He created you.
In Christ you are beautiful, powerful, interesting, and worth being pursued with ardent passion. God loves you and longs for you. Thoughts of you are always before Him. He wants you. He longs for deep intimacy with you. He is planning adventures for the two of you to take together and sprinkling divine connections and appointments at strategic points along your journey to brighten and enrich the enjoyment of your life with Him. He sees you in your peril and loves to come to your rescue. He enjoys making plans for your life that are exclusively designed to fit who He has created you to be. There are desires He has placed in your heart as the starting point on the treasure map of your destiny; seek Him and the hidden jewels of their fulfillment along the path of your life.
Drop your defenses and lay aside what is dead and over; open yourself and make room for the overflow of all that God is and all that He has for you. Remove what is blocking the flow by taking your eyes off of what it is you believe you are lacking. Freely you have been given, freely give. As you shift your focus to the Lord, your desires will shift. When you mindfully seek the Lord with all of your heart you will enter into the Great Romance. Allow yourself to be discovered. Dig into the heart of God to see yourself as He does.
Turn from those empty and broken cisterns that leave your longing unfulfilled and your affections unreturned and turn to the Living Water and the Lover of your soul. He will never compare you to another. You are a prize that is sought after. God longs to be close to your heart and gave all He had to secure a way for you to be bound eternally to Him with nothing separating, nothing coming between or muddying the deep waters of spiritual intimacy He created you to share with Him.
He wants to be your hero and rescue over and over again from your shared enemy. He will never leave you or forsake you. There is no limit to His grace and the power His love has to save. He will not stop chasing you until He fills every chamber of your heart, infuses all of your desires to His, cleanses every memory of its power to defile, transforms your personality into who He has created you to be, and frees your soul from all of the debris of the world, the flesh and the devil. He will not stop and will not hold back. He is pressing in on every side to mold you; searching out every angle to find any opening through which you will allow Him to enter in. His goal is your total surrender and abandonment of yourself to His perfect Love.
I know there has been quite an abundance of what appears to be false starts to your assignments, tepid responses to your faith-filled prayers, and inadequate growth of the seeds you have planted. You are looking at today’s conditions as if what can be measured by your mind is the outcome of your confidence. Place your confidence more fully on Me and My promises.
Now is the season I am launching you into the assignments of heaven allocated for you. If you are being moved by your circumstances to doubt that I will answer your prayers, step up higher and enter the fire of My Spirit. Allow My passionate love to consume your reservations that have you holding back from Me your whole heart. Courageously step into the heat and allow it to burn off the dross of your hesitation.
Your harvest has arrived. You have many fields and many crops. You are focusing on the wrong field, a field that is not yet in season and neglecting to go forth in excitement to gather the abundant overflow of the crops that have fully matured. You will need helpers to carry in the overflowing baskets of My provision. Understand this, if you have sown in every season, you will reap in every season. Continue to sow into your next seasons harvest but do not neglect to act in this season to tend the seed that has already been sown. In prayer and in diligence do the work of one that trusts that My hand of provision is always full and reaching out to you. Ask Me to open your eyes to what you have overlooked.
Watch as I lay at your feet the long awaited answer to your prayers. There have not been false starts; there have been needed lessons in order to prepare you for the take-off that is upon you. There are rocket ship launch times on the horizon. The testing and the test runs where necessary to prepare you to captain the ship into the new territories that I am bringing you into at the appointed time. Shake off the shackles of misunderstanding My purpose in your trial runs. They were not mistakes. Strategically we have worked out the kinks that would sabotage your unveiling.
Do not cling to the past or linger long over the memories of days gone by as if they represent where I am taking you or how far you will go. What was, will never be again. Where you are going, I alone know the way and am leading you with My strong hand of power and favor moving on your behalf to clear the way. There is no lack. There is no one that has the ability to abort this process that is leading to the best possible outcome but you. Let go of the false notion that anyone else is standing in your way. Pack your bags, leaving behind all the pointless clutter of yesterday and focus on the task at hand.
You have been handpicked for this mission. You have been trained. Drop the false humility; your lack of confidence does not please Me. I have chosen you, justified you, and equipped you for My purposes to be fulfilled through your life. Stand up and command the spirits of darkness that have come against you to cease and desist. You are no longer to doubt Me or doubt yourself. What I have promised you is coming to pass. Enough of the holding back. Leave behind all that is no longer serving My purposes for your life and step into the future that I have prepared for you today.

I will give you favor with the right people and remove the wrong ones. Let those I remove go without a backward glance. Its my protection of you to remove them. You have armed guards. You are not being rejected. Its not only for your protection but theirs when their hearts turn aside. I have commanded, ‘Touch not the Lords anointed.’

Receive my peace and joy. Leave yesterday and tomorrow in My hands. All of the events in your life; years, months, weeks and days are being fashioned by My omnipotent mind to prepare you for the good that I have for you and the good I will do through you.
Rise above the limited mindset that refuses to see My hand of grace moving through the painful circumstances that I have allowed you to walk through. You are not being harmed. You are safe in My hands.
Be on the lookout. I am going to whisk you away on an adventure with one of your favorite people. I knew what you would go through ahead of time and have prepared this excursion to ease your troubled mind. I have nothing but good thoughts towards you.
Stick with Me sweetheart. Let me love on you. Don’t worry right now about loving on the one(s) that have hurt you. They have erred grievously against Me and crushed you. Give your heart to Me today and let me mend it and treat it with the tenderest of care.
You are blessed and highly favored! Called and chosen. Set apart and made holy by the blood of the Lamb. You have everything you need in Me.
I see you. I see you’re faithfulness to Me and My ways in your life. I know your heart and the desires that burn there. My sweet child, you are a joy to My heart! When others turn aside to other gods when they don’t understand why I have allowed certain painful and difficult circumstances, you turn towards Me with greater passion. I love how you climb into my lap and accept my comfort as sufficient in your insufficiency. There is nothing or no one that can take from you the greater portion that you have chosen. I know that I can trust you. You know that you can trust Me. What sweet intimacy! Can you see Me smiling down on you? Do you hear the heavenly songs of deliverance the angels are singing as they form a circle of protection around you?
Know this, there is no devil in hell and no plan or failure of any human on this earth, that can hold back My hand in your life. I am moving swiftly on your behalf to bring about the desired results of your faith in Me. Thank you for leaving the when, where, how and who of your prayers fulfillment in My hands. You will not be disappointed. I will not disappoint you. Continue to march boldly forward. Believe that in all things I am working for your good. You have humbled yourself and I will exalt you, knowing that you will use all that I am blessing you with to glorify Me, because you see me as I am; full of loving compassion.
You understand how My divine restraint, that has left you waiting, isn’t to harm you but to build within your character and life all that is needed to equip you to maintain dominion over the greater levels of authority and provision that I am pouring into your lap.
Today is a day of celebration! Celebrate the victory of the battle that has already been won on your behalf. Celebrate your promotion in My Kingdom army.
You have been tested and tried. You have proven yourself a soldier able to follow orders; willing to lay your life down for Me, My cause and the lives of others.
I trust you.
Let these words sink deep into your soul.
I trust you.
Because you have spent many years listening to my voice and following my orders, your heart, mind and desires have merged with Mine. You know My voice and a strangers voice you do not follow. This year is a year of promotion, fulfillment, and prosperity; what has been developed and nurtured in the heavenly realm is being birthed in the natural. Use your natural voice to call forth whatever it is you need and watch it manifest. Do not doubt for one second that I have anointed you with the creative power to cause every obstacle to your desires manifestation destroyed. You desire what I desire, there is no hindrance to My will being done through you that will not be removed.
Now is the time.
There is nothing too difficult for you because you are walking in My will and are therefore connected to and can draw from My omnipotence the power you need. You have not shrunk back in fear or cowardice and have drank from the cup from which I drink. You have died and now I am your life. I am thrilled with you. Understand this, not for one second have I held your sometimes faltering steps of obedience against you. I have seen how far you have come; your growth into My image more and more over the years is what I see, not how far you have to go. You are complete in Me. You continue to allow me to search your heart and shine the light of My love in dark and wounded places.
Thank you for not keeping Me out. Thank you for welcoming Me into your life and heart with open arms. Thank you for your faithfulness and refusing to turn to idols in your confusion and pain.
You are precious.
You are special.
You are a one of a kind creation and I love you.
I will love you through all of eternity.
Self-indulgence, and giving into our fleshly appetites is sin; and it separates us from the presence and blessing of God.
Food has become the idol of many Christians today. We ask to see God’s power and glory while at the same time worshipping at the alter of food.
Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do. For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things.
Thank you Father for your certain deliverance! We praise you for your healing power. We receive forgiveness for our sins and transgressions in humility, taking nothing for granted.
Lord, increase our appetite for you, may we hunger and thirst for righteousness knowing we will be filled. Help us to live balanced, self-controlled lives, seeking your face in prayer and fasting as we apply our blood bought right to be freed from the power of sin and the control of our fleshly desires.
Give us the power to overcome our appetites that war against our soul and the abundant life you died for us to have.
Train and equip us to rise up as a mighty army, marching forward in victory, declaring your praises and shining forth your light, calling those that walk in darkness into your glorious light.
