Now is the Day of Salvation

No more waiting for the fulfillment of that which was promised to you. Today is the day of your salvation. What the enemy has toiled and maneuvered and manipulated to thwart in your life is not being held back by My hand. Reach out with your arms of faith and take hold of that which is already yours. Not tomorrow, not a week from now, but today. This very day what has been stored up for you is being poured out in abundance over your life. The scales from your eyes are falling off. Your preconceived ideas as to how I would answer the deepest cries of your heart are being removed so that you can perceive My goodness that is already in your midst.

Don’t look back. Yesterday is gone. The pain of yesterday is over. Feel it no more. Root out any false belief that you owe those things that are now dead your mourning. You owe nothing to anyone except a continued debt of love. Love on. Live on. Move on.

Love endures all things, this is your day to believe that the death you have endured, was to build your faith to believe, that what I have put in your lap is the beginning of the fulfillment of My promises to you.

I am proud of you and pleased with you. You have learned to follow the signs that I have placed along your path and My Spirit that I have placed within your hearts with less hesitation. The thoughts that contradict what I have shown you don’t hold the power to create fear in you as they once did. Now you are able to walk by faith! Open your eyes of faith wide and take in the scene before you. Do you see what I see? The possibilities unfolding before you, the path straightening beneath your feet, your provision in full view of those beautiful eyes of faith that you now see by, unimpeded by the fear of death?

Feel the bubbling brook of joy and the waves of peace. These are the indicators that what you are believing for you’re are receiving. Follow joy. Follow peace. Let the dead bury their own dead. No more mourning for those things that were brought into your life only to prepare you for this day. Again I say, NOW is the day of salvation. Do not pray, ‘Come quickly Lord.’ I am here with you already. Pray, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done’ and open your eyes and see the truth of My Kingdom and My will being made manifest in your life.

Doors Will Be Opened

Run towards the goals and visions that I have placed in your heart with unflinching faith. I am only placing a bridge under your feet for the next couple of steps in front of you. Do not wait for the waters to dry up, the mountains to be moved, or for an opening in the wall that rises up to block your progress.

Move confidently and joyfully forward and trust that when you reach the waters, they will dry up or part; when you come to a mountain, it will be cast into the sea or I will give you wings to soar above its heights; the walls that seem to be barriers to your progress will crumble with your shouts of praise, or a door will appear at the exact moment you are about to be stopped by the blockade.

Sing and praise; use the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart to co-create with Me all of the good things I have in mind to do in and through you. Allow the obstacles and challenges that you encounter to purify your heart and draw you closer to me. Seek first My kingdom and My righteousness and All of these things will be added to you as well. With every bit of increase, sow the first fruits into My Kingdom and watch in amazement as I multiply back to you what your seed, watered by faith in My word, will bring forth in your life.

Give and it will be given.

Bless those that come against you and do not curse them. Trust in my ability to bring justice into your life. Do not expect people to pay you back. I am the keeper of all of your accounts and as you release your enemies in love, I will be released to settle their accounts against you, in My way and in My time. Be on the lookout for how I will be restoring to you what has been stolen in this last season. Remain faithful to me, even when you are surrounded by those that are unfaithful.

Give yourself fully to the work of My Kingdom. Know that even in the areas of your life that are ‘unspiritual’ I am there and want to use you as a container for My glory in the earth. I have placed you in dark places to be a light; a beacon of hope to a lost and dying world. Let My hope fill you as you look to me to meet all of your needs. Come to me for refreshing. Rest with me and be still. Be still and know that I am God. I am the One that meets all of your needs.

Do not neglect to ask Me, even about the small and simple things in your life. Ask Me for wisdom and insight into your dealings and open your eyes to the varied ways I will be speaking to you the things that you need to hear to be clear as to the direction I am leading you.

One step at a time.

One day at a time.

March forward with unflinching faith.

Mountains will crumble.

Waters will part.

Doors will be opened.

Submerged In Pools Of ‘More Than Enough’

Give me your wandering mind as an offering of trust and allow me to calm the crashing waves of anxiety caused by your desire to figure out how I intend to fulfill My promises in the circumstances and relationships that are most important to you. I am giving you exactly what you need to walk forward in confident assurance that I am moving to untangle the confusion, caused by your worry, that I do not have your best interests at heart.

You can only see what I have shown you. I have all of the information that is needed to bring about the absolute best and highest outcome to all that concerns you. Can you see that by insisting on trying to plan every detail of your deliverance, you rob yourself of the blessing that I have for you this day? Not only that, you miss out on taking the necessary steps of preparation that I am leading you to take by spending your time gazing into the future and projecting your ideas of the best solutions to your problems onto the screen of your consciousness.

This practice is filling up space that would be better occupied with faith in My goodness, loving Me, yourself and others this day.

Be present in the here and now.

I know that you need to be encouraged to hold onto the dreams and visions that I have placed within you. I do not mind you asking for signs and wonders and revelation that will strengthen you as you wait on Me, but on some days, I grow weary of your refusal to just rest when I am not showering you with My revelation knowledge.

Know that on the days when I am not dropping buckets of understanding over your mind, it is because I can see that you are already submerged in pools of ‘more than enough.’ I am waiting for you to open your eyes to the abundance around you, and with the joyful trust of a child begin frolicking and playing in the springs of my favor that you are already flowing in. It pains me to see you straining your eyes to the sky for a drop of revelation into your future and problems solution while standing in the waters of all that I am in your life up to your neck.

If you aren’t going to swim and play in My abundance, at least kick back and relax. Let tension and apprehension leave your soul and body. I love you! Close your eyes. Give them a rest from straining towards heaven to see what I am not ready to reveal.

Today I give you a choice. Either plunge joyfully into the stream of My Spirit that surrounds you, or lean back into all that I am for you in this very moment; let your feet leave the ground and rest on the gentle sea of peace that passes all understanding.

His Way, His Time and for His Glory

I am a friend of God! Woohoo. I LOVE walking in close intimate fellowship with the King of the universe. God no longer calls me a servant because I do what I see the Father doing and I pray what I hear Jesus praying and I desire what the Holy Spirit desires. I do not have to fear that my prayers will not be answered. I have Gods Word on this matter and He is not a man that He should lie. He reveals deep mysteries to me and its an intense and thrilling ride. I have fought through my doubts and fears into a spacious place of grace and power, a new level of glory and supernatural revelation. I am making it through another round of painful pruning and can see and taste the massive fruit that is coming in the next season. I remain in the vine. By the grace and mercy of God I live and breath and soldier on. I beat my body into submission. Christ has conquered death and it will no longer reign in my mortal body. He has anointed my eyes to see heavenly visions and deep and hidden things. He has walked me through the valley of the shadow of death once again. My knees wobbled and my brow sweat, but I clung to the hope of my calling in Christ Jesus and the dark and cloudy skies are clearing; the path beneath my feet is a steady uphill climb out of the valley and up the mountain that is lifting me high above my enemies.

Remain in God even if it hurts. Remain in Him when He leads you into darkness; when you can’t see where He is leading you. Remain in Him when you feel the cut of His knife; He is removing dead weight. Remain in Him and He will remain in you and your joy will grow and grow and grow. His power will be available to you to accomplish everything He calls you to do, and the desires of your heart will be fulfilled His way, His time and for His glory!
‘As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other.”
-John 15:9-15

Your Enemies Will Bow Before You

I am working on your relational situation to bring about an outcome that is far better than your limited understanding can comprehend at this time. This is why I am not unveiling all of the details to you. Your part is to trust Me, to obey Me, and to go to war through prayer and fasting. Stop believing that you have to wrestle with Me to release your blessing. Yes, I am calling you to wrestle, but you are wrestling the blessing I have already released on your behalf from the hands of the enemy and unsanctified flesh that would hinder what already is loosed in heaven from manifesting on the earth on your behalf.

Do not ignore My explicit instructions to shut out all distractions and focus on the task at hand. Do not look for the manna from heaven that I have been using to feed you in the last season anymore, it will never be again. You are entering into your promised land flowing with milk and honey!

Now is the time to take possession of the land.

You have been tested and tried in the last season. You now recognize that your ungratefulness, grumbling, pride and unbelief are offensive to Me and have no place in your future. Don’t resist this time of uncertainty. You can be certain of Me and My desire to bring you into your inheritance.

I have striped you down to lighten the load for battle. Today you must rise up and take possession of your miracle. I have released it already. No need to ask of Me anymore for what I have already promised is yours.

Get up.

March.

Shout songs of praise and deliverance.

Pray in My Spirit.

Open your mouth and declare the truth over those people and relationships that have been bound, not by My hand, but by the hand of the enemy.

Release My people through your intercession. This is not the time to focus on anything other than My face. Look on My face and you will see a smile of satisfaction as I watch you smear the enemies plans to hold back My provision and blessing. Listen for My voice and you will hear My laughter at the adversaries that rise up against you and your inheritance as My chosen and dearly loved child.

There is nothing to fear. Laugh with Me in the face of fear.

Bow before Me and your enemies will bow before you.

 

Wilderness Wandering

Are you in a ‘desert season?’ Have you been waiting on the fulfillment of a promise past the point of all reason and human hope? Do you feel trapped in your circumstances? Are you suffering lack? Sickness? Weariness?

Do not lose heart! Stoke the embers in your heart and fan them ablaze with passion again.

Encourage yourself in The Lord.

‘To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven’ -Ecclesiastes 3:1

Remember the Israelites and their journey out of bondage and slavery through the desert, and the battles they fought to take possession of the promised land.

If you remember, Joshua and Caleb were the only men of their generation permitted to go into the promised land after the Israelites wandered and were tested in the desert for 40 years.

2 out of a likely 2.5 million people. Not good odds!!!

‘But they soon forgot what he had done and did not wait for his council. In the desert they gave in to their craving; in the wasteland they put God to the test. So he gave them what they asked for, but sent a wasting disease upon them.’
-Psalm 106:13-15

I’m pondering my life and holding it up to the light of the Word this morning.

Does my life more closely resemble the spies that spread a false report? The people that accepted the false report as truth? The impatient, grumbling, idol worshipping, giving into cravings and not waiting on the council of God, Israelites?

Or is my life a life of faith and rest, like that of Joshua and Caleb, the men that believed God and had confidence that what He promised would come to pass; that they would be able to accomplish what God said they could?

How we see God, what we believe about his character, and whether or not we take him at his word, colors how we view our life and the world around us.

‘Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed…..

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.’

-Hebrew 4:1-2; 15-16

Thankfulness, Hearing God Speak, and Walking By Faith

Join me today in taking up arms against the enemy of ours souls by having a thankful heart that expresses itself through attitudes and words that confirm our faith in God and His goodness.

Let’s go forward with expectancy; believing Gods favor rests on us; that He is working all things for good; and that His grace Really is sufficient for us.

If your feeling pressured or hounded to ‘figure things out,’ do not lean into your own limited understanding.
Pause. Close your eyes. Take a few deep, slow breaths and say, ‘Thank you Jesus. Thank you Jesus. Thank you Jesus.’ Consciously breath in His peace and breath out your problem. Release control to Him.

Remember who you are. Remember Whose you are! You are a child of the Most High God, set apart and made holy by the blood of the Lamb. No weapon formed against you will prosper. Every tongue that rises up against you in judgement, you will show to be in the wrong, for God made him who knew no sin, to become sin, that you might be made the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ.

Got it? Okay, bask in these truths until your soul is settled down into His peace. Now in this clarity of mind ask God what He would have you do. He may speak something to you immediately. Do it without hesitation. It may not become clear right away. Do not worry. Ask in faith what your part is; ask for wisdom, now return to your daily duties in full confidence that He will reveal Himself and His way to you for whatever problems you face.

If you are not hearing God speak, or recognizing his guidance, look for ways to make more room for Him in your week. Inactivity does not always equal unproductiveness! Quiet time is the perfect time to reconnect with God and your own heart.

Don’t neglect to read God’s word! The exact wisdom, comfort, or encouragement you need could be tucked away in the pages of the Bible. Read it!

Ask for God to open your eyes to all of the ways He speaks to you throughout your days. Your daily lives are ripe with parables that explain the mind of Christ. Pray for ears to hear and eyes to see!

Finally I say, walk in love! If you don’t feel loving, that’s okay. Determine in your heart to act lovingly and to replace every unlovely or impure thought that pops into your head with loving and pure thoughts.

Exercise your love muscle! Your feelings will fall in line eventually. We are called to walk in love, not to feel lovingly.

If you are still not hearing God speak personally to you giving direction, consider that often, in order to hear from God, you must first be willing to do whatever He says. 


Sometimes we want to hear first before we make up our minds to obey. That’s backward. Determine first to obey no matter what, at any cost, then you may find the way was clear all along and it was your own unwillingness or hesitation that obscured it.

Also, once you do hear, obey without hesitation.

Don’t stand on the shore waiting for the water to part when you have heard God say ‘Cross to the other side.’

Begin walking in obedience by faith!

The waters will either part before you as you step in or God will enable you to walk on the water to the other side

How can I pray for you today? There are strength in numbers!


Run With Patience

Sometimes we need a refresher course on the importance of God’s grace in keeping us from living a lower, common sense life.

It is God’s grace that lifts us up out of what we can comprehend with our own limited mindsets and understanding into the unseen realm, where by faith, we can walk confidently through the things we don’t understand.

It’s important that we learn to ‘run with patience’ – doing our daily duties, keeping our commitments and serving God, even when we are full of sorrow and uncertainty.

Anyone can sit and wait for the emotional and spiritual storm to pass, but when we run and exert ourselves, in spite of our pain, we are strengthened in The Lord and gain endurance.

God’s grace empowers us to live victorious lives in the midst of great uncertainties and seeming injustices.

Grace enables us to walk in the certainty that God is a good and just God, even when our prayers seem to be going unanswered.

I believe this, even though I don’t always see the evidence or feel victorious.

I don’t trust my eyes or my feelings. Bridging the distance between what is fact and what is truth in my life is only possible by grace, through faith.

I thank God for his grace. I thank him for the joy that He gives even in the midst of suffering. I thank Him for the courage that I have found through Him.

I do not fear pain like I once did, because I know him.

Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Whisper the name of Jesus and remember. Remember His promise, that we are not alone. We are not orphans. He has sent the Spirit to guide and comfort us.

Do not be afraid to walk through doorways of pain on your path to healing and wholeness.

We are not subject to random coincidences.

God has a plan for our lives and will redeem our problems and pain when we put our trust in Him.

God Is For Us

It is an amazing discovery when we come to realize that God, the Creator of the whole universe, is concerned with our daily lives in a deeply personal way.

Satan will do his best to convince us otherwise through other people, our circumstances and by suggesting to our minds thoughts that are contrary to God’s word and character. We need to remind ourselves when we are struggling with doubt and discouragement that the devil is a liar and our flesh and feelings can’t always be trusted either.

We must stand on the Word of God and His promises.

Only then can we resist falling into the trap of fixing our eyes on what we see and what we can understand with our own limited human understanding and begin to rest in the assurance that all things are working together for good to those that love God.

God is still on the throne.

He is a God of order and His understanding is far beyond ours; nothing is just randomly happening to us.

Our steps are ordered by the Lord!

He has not left us alone but has given us the Holy Spirit to comfort and guide us through every day and night of our life in victory.

Victory is certain. The battle belongs to God. He goes before us and makes a level path for our feet. Our part is to trust and obey.

Meditate on this today. God is for us!

Purify Our Appetites

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.
-Philippians 3:17-19

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.
