Strength and Conditioning


An Exuberant Declaration of Faith A Psalm of David.
“The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?  The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?   When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell.
Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, in this I will be confident.  One thing I have desired of the LORD, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in His temple.
For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.  And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD,” 
  Psalm 27:1-6 NKJV.“The LORD is their strength, and He is the saving refuge of His anointed.  Save Your people, And bless Your inheritance; Shepherd them also, and bear them up forever,”   Psalm 28:8-9 NKJV.

“The LORD will give strength to His people; The LORD will bless His people with peace,”   Psalm 29:11 NKJV.

“Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him,”   Luke 22:43 NKJV.

“For how can this servant of my lord talk with you, my lord?  As for me, no strength remains in me now, nor is any breath left in me.”  Then again, the one having the likeness of a man touched me and strengthened me.  And he said, “O man greatly beloved, fear not!  Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong!”  So when he spoke to me I was strengthened, and said, “Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me,”   Daniel 10:17-19 NKJV.

“I see your weakened states My beloveds.  I feel every jab, every wicked word, every attack against you.

I feel Your pain, and I know all you are going through.  I AM conditioning you to bear up under greater pressures.  But I will also STRENGTHEN you in supernatural ways.

Do not be discouraged by the things coming on the earth.  Do not be discouraged by the wickedness that is growing. Know that MY STRENGTH is made perfect in WEAKNESS.

You don’t always have to be strong in your own strength.  You need to be strong in MY STRENGTH.  When you run out of your own, you can count on MINE.  I will give you strength to endure the evil day !

I AM NOT a man that I should lie, nor a son of man that I should change My mind.  Surely the days will be hard, and harder, yet My people I‘ve said again and again will do GREAT EXPLOITS in My name ! Do NOT allow yourself to give into impatience and frustrations.

Do not allow yourself to be thwarted by the thoughts of demons and their taunts.  REBUKE the enemy and ask Me to breathe more strength into you!

I AM here and I love you more than anyone ever could love you on this earth you dwell on.

I AM LOVE.  I Am your Peace.  I Am your STRENGTH!  And I want to be the supreme desire of your heart!

I WANT TO HAVE SUPREMACY in your heart, in your thought life, in your desires.  Come to ME and lean on Me when you are feeling overwhelmed, for My ways are higher than your ways.

I AM removing idolatry from your hearts beloveds in all that I do.  For I AM a JEALOUS Lover!  I will not have any other gods before ME.  I will not have your ministry, your family, your job, your things come before ME.

If you do not yield to do what I say, you will find yourself fighting with ME.  You cannot serve GOD and mammon I’ve said.  You cannot have YOUR way, and yield to My way.  Your commitment must be TOTAL.

Your commitment to live according to My ways rather than your own desire must be firm. How will you withstand the fiery darts of the enemy coming from a godless machine of destruction if you give up so easily?

I AM strengthening and conditioning your spiritual muscles, the same you strengthen and condition natural muscles.  It takes EXERCISE!  You must submit to the process if you want to OVERCOME all the obstacles.  You must exercise patience to overcome impatience.

You must exercise peace to overcome frustration.  You must take control of your emotions and not rely on the emotions for telling you how you are doing.  The enemy will pummel you if you do that!  He will manipulate circumstances till you falter and fail.

PRAISE ME IN ALL THINGS.  No matter what the circumstances.  THANK ME.  SHOW the enemy that you will not give in to frustration and anger, to fear and doubts!  SHOUT aloud to the God of your salvation!

Sing and dance, and proclaim My WORD.  As you grow stronger and stronger there is more and more consistency to your walk.

But it takes exercise to build muscles.  Exercise your determination to walk without complaining, to walk without discontentment.  For godliness with contentment is great gain ! RENOUNCE discontentment with My plan.

RESIGN yourselves to continue training your senses, and your spiritual muscles, so that you will win the race, and overcome all opposition!  For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.  When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

I will also strengthen you supernaturally as you REST in My arms of LOVE!  I will also send you angels to strengthen you who are in harsh circumstances in eastern lands!  Ask and you shall receive.

Knock and the door will be opened to you.  I AM visiting many of you and yet many are still TOO BUSY to recognize that I have come knocking on your door, and am with you!  SLOW DOWN!  SLOW DOWN!

The glory train is coming.

I WILL,  I WILL,  I WILL rain down glory!

I will alter some things in this nation to perfect My will.  But I will NOT alter other things because apathy and complacency are too deeply ingrained.  I WILL SHAKE ALL THAT CAN BE SHAKEN . If you are standing on the ROCK, then you will not sink.

Hold on beloveds for the ride of your life is coming!”
