31 August 2021. You are a Strong Tower
“Remember, My Child, that I have made you strong. Immovable by the things of the world and unshaken by the things of the enemy. Brick by brick, I have built you for this moment so that you would not faint and you would not fail. For by My Spirit, you can do all things!
So as you look at that mountain, remember the size you are in the Spirit! You are greater, you are stronger, and you have all power and authority!”
Matthew 21:21 NIV “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt…you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done.”
Philippians 4:13 NIV “I can do all things through him who gives me strength.”
30 August 2021. Learning to Linger
“Learn to linger. Today is a lesson in dwelling, sitting and settling yourself with Me. Where your mind wants to run around in circles or your checklist of prayers keeps interrupting. Lay it down and meet me in uncomfortable silence. Meet me in the distance of the world and the closeness of Heaven. Ask for the grace to be one who is not easily shaken or distracted. I want ALL of you at this moment. Learn to linger!”
Psalm 26:8 NIV “Lord, I love the house where you live, the place where your glory dwells.”
Hebrews 6:12 NIV “We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.”
27 August 2021. Meditate on These Things
“My beloved Child, you are spending too much of your time focusing on troubles, worries, uncertainties and disappointments. Beloved, I AM releasing the Peace of God to be with you in all things, and you get this by meditating on what is true, on what is noble, on what is just, on all things pure and lovely. By remembering My Faithfulness and the testimonies of My Works in your life. Meditate on all that is praiseworthy and watch as your trouble fall away, and you take on the mind of Christ.”
Activation: Make a list of what is true, noble, just, pure, lovely and of the testimonies of God moving and start giving God praise for these things. Break out of the old mind space today with praise and worship. Place your hands on your head today and declare, ‘I have the mind of Christ’ Freedom from negative thoughts are coming your way.”
Philippians 4:8-9 NIV “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me — put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”
1 Corinthians 2:16 NIV “…But we have the mind of Christ….”
26 August 2021. Be Content
“I AM calling you to come to a place of being content in all things. Whether you have a physical need or live in abundance and wealth if you are being held captive or a free person. I want you to come and find full contentment in me. Being content in all things isn’t being self-sufficient, instead it is sufficiency in Me, Christ Jesus whose peace and purpose you can enjoy regardless of life’s circumstances. Come and enjoy the fullness of My Presence today and be content knowing that I AM all you need to be content in life.”
Philippians 4: 11-13 NIV “I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him, who gives me strength.”
25 August 2021. Have You Asked?
“I want to show you wonderful things. Things you deemed impossible. I want to share heavenly things, supernatural things and impart them to your natural reality. I want to manifest power in you, through you and around you. I want to meet you, talk to you, and give you good things. I want to dance with you, sing with you and cry with you.
But have you asked me for any of these things? It’s here; it’s ready to be released. If you ask, the possibilities are endless.”
John 15:7 NIV “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you”
Luke 11:13 NIV “…how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
24 August 2021. I Believe!
“Do you believe that I am the God who can do abundantly more than you can hope or imagine? Today I AM coming to deal with the unbelief that you carry in your heart. Unbelief has crept into your mind bringing a word of doubt to My Goodness, My Plans and Purposes in your life. You have been asking for an increase of faith to see these promises come forth, but it is not faith that you lack. You are mighty and full of faith, but it is the seed of unbelief that has been planted which is growing in your mind.
Today pray this prayer ‘LORD, I believe, help my unbelief. Today I uproot the seed of unbelief which I have allowed to be planted in my mind, and I declare I believe you are the God who can do more than I could hope or imagine.’”
Mark 9:23-24 NIV “Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!””
Ephesians 3:20 NIV “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,”
23 August 2021. Always Awake
“I AM not sleeping on the job! I do not lay dormant. I AM ever-knowing, ever-seeing and ever-present. I know when you sit down and when you stand up. I do not ignore. I do not dismiss. When you approach me, whether in rest or work, in sleep or waking hours, hardship or celebration. I WILL ANSWER
If you have believed the lie that I am a distant God or a dormant God, allow the truth of my presence to wash you today! I will meet you. I will hold you. I will speak to you!”
ACTIVATION: Meditate on Psalm 139 and meet the Father today!
Psalms 139:7 NIV “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?”
Exodus 33:14 NIV “…My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
20 August 2021. Change Your Mind , Change Your Future
“My People, you have become used to a particular way of living and thinking. Physical restrictions changed your mindset. But I AM looking for those who will lift their eyes again and enter the promised spiritual land ahead.
Your wilderness experience has not been forty years! My Plans have not changed. What are you afraid of? Tell Me and be honest with Me. The world and media have triggered an increase in fear. My desire is for a fearless Church. A Church that seeks me out daily has evidence of me moving in their lives and a Church that seeks me for the lost. Come out of enforced confinement, push off your bedclothes and leave them behind.
Declare out loud over yourself and the atmosphere each day from Colossians 3:2 ESV ‘I set my mind on things that are above, not on things that are on Earth’ and from 1 Corinthians 2:16 ESV ‘I have the mind of Christ.’ “
Isaiah 43:1 NIVUK. “But now, this is what the Lord says, he who created you Jacob, he who formed you Israel: ‘Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.”
1 Peter 1:13 NIV “Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.”
19 August 2021. Grave Clothes No More
I hear The LORD calling your name, calling you to come forth! “Come out of the grave!” He declares. He is standing outside like when he called to Lazareth today he is calling to you ‘Come forth’. Come out of the grave, come out from the dark places that hold you in restraint, come out of the grave and throw off the grave clothes that have been wrapped around you. As you come out, The LORD is re clothing you, dressing you in robes of white, for victory and as overcomers.
Activation: Prophetically step up, move from one place of the grave into a new place of victory. Prophetically remove the grave clothes which have held you back for so long and take hold of the victory clothes of life that The LORD is redressing you in. The seasons of death have past and now is the time of life.
John 11:40-44 NKJV “Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.” Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.””
Luke 15: 22 -24 NKJV “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry.”
18 August 2021. Tangled
Hebrews 12:1 (NIV) “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us …”
“I AM streamlining you for your race. I AM releasing you into greater capacity to run unhindered.
I AM lifting off you the weight of great responsibility that you have taken upon yourself. I have not overburdened you. I AM lifting off you the heavy, dragging weight of guilt and shame. I have made you be unencumbered. I AM lifting off you the crushing weight of expectation that sucks you into performance.
I AM cutting the ropes that tie you to loyalties of a different season or loyalties that were not of my making. I AM releasing you to run faster, to run further, with feet unfettered.
As you throw off these hindrances, I AM releasing you into an acceleration that will catapult you forwards.”
Activation: Holy Spirit, shine your illuminating light into my life and show me where there are weights that limit my capacity to run as you intend me to. Give me the wisdom to know what to do with each circumstance. I want nothing and no one to hold me back. Give me the courage to let go, release, throw off, or hand over everything you show me that is a limiting factor in my life right now.
17 August 2021. I AM The God Who Forgives
“Beloved, why are you far from Me? Why do you hide like Adam and Eve in the garden, ashamed of what you have done? Why do you hide your face from me and keep you distant from Me? Ashamed of the sin you have committed, fearful of my nature and unsure of what I will say to you?
My dear child, I AM not distant or angry. I AM the God who heals and the God who forgives. I see your heart and the longing you have to walk in purity and intimacy with Me. I know the person I have made you to be, and I delight in watching you take steps to become more like that person. I do not punish you when you stumble and fall.
When you repent, I AM quick to forgive. I do not remember that which My Son, Jesus, already washed from you in His Blood. Am I not the running Father who, when the son was far off, was already running towards Him?
The moment you turn to face Me, I AM running to embrace you. There is no sin that I can not forgive, and there is no shame strong enough to keep me away. I AM the ever running Good Father coming to embrace you and set you upon the path I have made for you. Today come to me, turn towards Me and experiences the embrace that only a Father can give to you.”
Luke 15:20 NIV “So he got up and went to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.”
16 August 2021. Focused Attention
“If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear.” Mark 4:23.
“Pay attention to My Voice above the clamour of the voices on the earth right now. Tune your ears to hear. Take time to draw aside, to shut the door on the demands for your attention, on the demands for your time. Take time and come and sit with me and listen attentively to My Voice.
Draw aside with Me. Invest yourself in My Voice, in really listening. There is a significant difference between just hearing a sound and listening to it. Do not allow My Voice to become background noise. Do not allow My Voice to get drowned out in all the other noise.
This is a time for focused attention to My Words. This is a time for attention to the detail of My Words. Where My Words have become over-familiar, listen again. Allow Me to reveal fresh insight as you read, as you listen to My Words with open ears. Allow My Words to take root in new ways.”
“Consider carefully what you hear, he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you – and even more. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.”” Mark 4:24-25 (NIV)
Then Jesus said, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”
He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables.”” Mark 4:9, 11 (NIV)
Activation: Ask God for creative ways to read the bible with fresh eyes, especially where it has become overfamiliar. Ask Him to help you be aware and focus on what you are reading / hearing. Try reading a different version of The Bible or reading it in another way – out loud, sitting in a different place, in a physical Bible instead of digitally.
13 August 2021. The Reality of Heaven
“Today I AM coming to awaken My Bride to the realities of Heaven. I long to see heaven on earth, but before I can see heaven on earth, My People need to see Heaven itself. Heaven is not to be a far off place that can only be entered once we die; heaven is within reach.
I AM making heaven a place that My Church experiences day by day. Today I AM opening Doors in the Heavenly Realm and calling you into My Glory.
I AM calling you to be builders of Heaven on earth. How can a builder start his work without first seeing the architect drawings? I AM a great Architect, and I have blueprints I want to show you today.”
Activation: Today, ask God to show you heaven. Take time and sit down with The LORD, pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened to know him and see him. Pursue the person of Jesus and ask to see where he dwells. Allow The Holy Spirit to lead you.
Luke 17:21 NIV “Nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.”
Ephesians 1:17-19 NIV “I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength.”
12 August 2021. Clean Hands and Pure Heart
Psalm 27 asked the question, “Who can ascend The Hill of The LORD?” The reply is those who have clean hands and a pure heart.
The LORD is coming in this time to purify and clean hands and hearts. The act of purifying the heart happens in the inward thinking and condition of our hearts. Where God removes false thinkings, ungodly attitudes, and brings healing to us from past traumas and pains.
He is also coming to clean hands. This is the outward manifestation of preparation over our bodies . That we who are the temple of The Holy Spirit would have a body which can honour and house God’s presence. The LORD is giving grace to many who have wanted to break off bad habits which effect there body and to come into a place of cleansing not just of the heart but also of the hands and body.
In this place, we can come into the presence of God and dwell there forever. For God is making us a dwelling place of The Most High.
Psalm 51:10 NIV “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”
2 Corinthians 7:1 NIV “Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.”
Ezekiel 36:26 NIV “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”
11 August 2021. Pure Words
“My Words are Pure and Holy and Righteous and achieve what I send them to achieve. Do you ever filter what I say to you, do you dumb down or change what I say before speaking with others? My Church you have been found guilty. There is no need for My Words to be dealt with like sewage water arriving at a wastewater centre: they do not require to be filtered, purified and disinfected prior to being used.
Guard what I say to you. Do not filter My Words either from The Bible or from The Spirit: speak The Truth of My Kingdom with My Heart Attitude as you receive them.”
1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 NIVUK “Do not quench the Spirit. Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good, reject every kind of evil.”
1 Timothy 6: 20-21 NIVUK “Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge, which some have professed and in so doing have departed from the faith. Grace be with you all.”
10 August 2021. Sounds of His Warriors
“Where your voice has gone quiet, where your courage has drained away, where you have become weary in doing good, I AM refreshing you. I AM restoring your strength to go again. I AM opening doors of connection, doors of fellowship, for you to be able to stand strong alongside others who are also willing to stand up and stand out in this hour. As you stand tall, you will be able to see others who are standing up and standing out and there will be opportunities to align, to connect, in order for your voices to be stronger together.
I AM joining lone voices to amplify the sound of My Warriors, those who speak out against the work of the enemy. The sound of My Warriors is being amplified, their voices will be heard across the land, in unison. This is a time to join forces.”
Hebrews 10:25 (TPT) “This is not the time to pull away and neglect[a] meeting together, as some have formed the habit of doing. In fact, we should come together even more frequently, eager to encourage and urge each other onward as we anticipate that day dawning.”
Ephesians 4:25 (NIV) “Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbour, for we are all members of one body.”
9 August 2021. The Lone Voices
“I AM strengthening The Lone Voices, the ones who have felt like they are swimming against the tide, the ones who have felt isolated and betrayed by their brothers and sisters. I have heard your cries in the night. I have seen your pain, but I have also seen your willingness to stand in the face of the onslaught of the enemy.
I have seen your willingness to stand up and stand out. I AM coming to stand alongside those of you who have been willing to be different, to be bold, to be unpopular. I AM strengthening you in your battle weariness. Well done my faithful ones.”
Matthew 24:12-13 (NIV) “Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.”
John 14:16-18 (NIV) “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever — the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.”
6 August 2021. You Are The Presence of God
“Today, I AM coming to you to break off the lie that you have to perform and do ‘holy’ acts to come into my presence. I AM not a distant or far off God. I AM not keeping away from you or hiding from you. I AM a fully available God, and today I want to awaken you to the understanding and knowledge that I AM in you!
I AM inside of you, and I dwell with you. You are not hidden from me, I see you, and I know you, I live inside you, and I AM always close by, I AM closer than any friend, closer even than the breath in your lungs. I AM one with you, and today I will make you aware of the oneness that we carry.
I AM bringing you into a more profound revelation of the oneness we walk in — hand in hand, heart to heart, no distance or separation. We are one.”
John 17:22 NIV “I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one.”
1 Corinthians 6:17 NIV “But whoever is united with The LORD is one with him in spirit.”
1 Corinthians 3:16 ESV “Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?”
5 August 2021. “Hear ME Knocking!”
“What do you think when you hear Me knocking through your thoughts, soul and emotions? Do you rejoice and say, ‘The LORD of the Universe is speaking to me!’ or is your answer more that you are too busy to listen and ‘God talking to me just doesn’t suit me now’?
I say My Voice must be heard in the earth as it is in Heaven, so surrender to My tapping and reminding you of My Presence. I have eternal Kingdom Reasons to intervene in your life.
Just as the woodpecker bird knocks loudly, echoing around the woodland, wake up to My Knocking. That same bird does this to communicate, assist its feeding on larvae, or make nesting places. My Knocking also brings words of communication, food and resting places to you.
Today I call you to incline your ear and hear Me; I call you to listen to My Voice.
Luke 11:28 MSG “Jesus commented, “Even more blessed are those who hear God’s Word and guard it with their lives!“”
Luke 12:35-36 NIVUK “Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, like servants waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks, they can immediately open the door for him.”
4 August 2021. What Is Success?
I hear The LORD asking the question, “How have you measured your success?” Has it been through the total of money in your bank account, the number of followers you have on social media, has it been through the numbers of people who have turned up to your church or event?
For The LORD is saying, “I AM coming to change the mindset of the Church in this hour to take them off the idea that success comes through numbers in a room or on a page, to remove the concept the only way to success is through a works mindset. I AM coming to break the false idea of success, and I AM planting in the heart of the Church what true success is. I look at success by this measure. How Christ-like are you?
How much you are like Christ is what true success looks like. Pray today that you would become more like Jesus in every way. That the money you earn, the education you pursue, the friendships you have will all come second to the pursuit of becoming more like Jesus.”
Romans 8:28 NIV “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
1 Corinthians 1:11 NET “Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ”
3 August 2021. Count The Cost!
“It’s time to see that I AM worth the cost, many of you have been holding back from everything from me because of the fear that I will not be worth the cost but today I AM coming to tell you I AM everything you need.
Some of you think you have committed to follow me, to give Me everything. You think you have surrendered your life, but you have not. Some of you have tried to follow without causing waves, without causing ripples amongst your friendship groups. Count the cost. There is no way of following me wholeheartedly without there being a cost.”
Activation: “Ask Me where you still hold back. Ask Me what are the things that you are tied to. Ask Me where you have made excuses. Are you willing to pay the cost? Are you willing to cross the line?”
Luke 14:26-30, 33 (TPT) “When you follow me as my disciple, you must put aside your father, your mother, your wife, your sisters, your brothers; it will even seem as though you hate your own life. This is the price you’ll pay to be considered one of my followers. Anyone who comes to me must be willing to share my cross and experience it as his own, or he cannot be considered to be my disciple. So don’t follow me without considering what it will cost you. For who would construct a house before first sitting down to estimate the cost to complete it? Otherwise, he may lay the foundation and not be able to finish. The neighbours will ridicule him, saying, ‘Look at him! He started to build but couldn’t complete it!’ Likewise, unless you surrender all to me, giving up all you possess, you cannot be one of my disciples.”
2 August 2021. Full Exposure
“There is full exposure coming to you. It will reveal and bring to light your next step and who you are called to be. Many of you have walked through a time of frustration looking for direction. You have been feeling like you are stumbling around but know that I have heard your heart cry! I have been shifting and moulding you into all that I have anointed you for.
If you will breathe, trust and release it all to ME, I AM ready to transition you!”
Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV “Trust in The LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
