August 11, 2020. The Father says today, I AM your righteousness. When I look at you, says the Father, I see the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. That is the basis of every answered prayer and blessing in your life. When I look at you, I see the blood on the doorpost of your heart, and I pass over you to protect you and bring you out of your captivity. I move in your life, not based on who you are or what you have done for Me. I move in your life based on who I AM and what I did for you on the Cross years ago. When you come before Me in prayer, realize that the Cross is enough. Giving your body to be burned or making some religious sacrifice does not prompt Me to act in your life in any way. You are qualified for all of heaven’s best because of what I have done and am doing in you and not any other thing.
Accept your place before Me this day, says the Father. Receive the fact of the finished work of Calvary. Lay aside every human effort to get My attention and just know that I have set you as the pupil of My eye. I see your distress and will have mercy in your time of need. Come before Me expectantly and wait patiently on the thing that I AM bringing about. Commune with your own heart on your bed and say to your busy little mind, “Be still and know…” There are those around you filled with pessimism, but that is not your portion. Sarcasm is the last defense of the carnal mind. Let cynicism and sarcasm be displaced with gladness in your heart and the light of My countenance. Your time of celebration has come. Your corn and wine are increased. Enter into My peace; even the peace of one whose warfare has been done away with by the Cross; then you will lay down in tranquility and sleep the sleep of a babe, safe in My arms.
August 10, 2020. The Father says today, I AM your shield against every assault of hell. The enemy may increase himself against you and even use those closest to you to hurt you — but I am here, and there is nothing to worry about. Others look at you convinced that you are only getting what you deserve, but that is not the lens through which I look at you or your situation. The enemy rises against you in many ways, but they only put a target on their back that My arrows might find them and remove them far off. I AM your protection. I AM your provision. Though you could not find one person to stand with you, I AM here, and I will never leave you or forsake you.
Say of your soul, “My salvation is in God…” What I am about to do no one will be able to take credit for. Those who are eyeing you just waiting to see you fall will be ashamed and turned back when they see My blessing and My favor showered upon you in a moment for I AM the God that can do anything I want any time I want, and I don’t have to check with anyone before I do. My exhortation to you this day is, don’t panic. The fear of The Lord is clean, but every other fear is unclean. Refuse to allow the enemy to defile your mind with thoughts of fear or worry of any kind. I AM on-premises in your life. The angels encamp all around you. The answers you seek are manifesting even now, and you will not be thwarted.
August 9, 2020. The Father says today, let the heathen rage for I have hidden you in My pavilion. The kings of the earth and rulers of men despise My counsels and plunge headlong into darkness, but that is not your portion. Nations defy My ordinances and turn away from My wisdom, but in the midst of their darkness, I will be light to your path leading you to the place of peace and contentment. Know this, says God, that peace is not the absence of conflict; peace is a fruit of My Spirit working in you and preserving you from the enmity of godless minds. As I have set boundaries for the sea and said, “go no further,” I have set boundaries for the sons of men and declared “this far and no further.” They set their sights on the fleshly treasures of iniquity, but My word in the earth is “that will be enough of that!”
So fret not when you see evildoers reaping the consequences of their actions. Hell was not created for them, yet hell is their portion, nonetheless. Your responsibility is to be salt and light until Shiloh comes and with it My hand of deliverance to move in your personal life and make things different than they are. Remember that He that sits in the heavens will laugh, and I have seated you in heavenly places in Christ. If you aren’t laughing, you are living below your privileges. Know that I have set you in My holy hill of Zion, and there I will defend you and preserve you till all these troubles are over. Despair not at the conceit of the ungodly for in their rebellion they only mark themselves as the heathen that I give you for your inheritance. They will be broken at the wheel and left parched at the cistern of their own making, but to you, I have given the uttermost parts of the earth for your inheritance, and your righteousness will ever originate in Me.
August 8, 2020. The Father says today, I AM infusing your life with My Blessing this day. You have chosen to turn away from dark counsels and manipulation. You decided to run in the way of My Word and not after the advice of those who have no light in them. Realize this, says the Father, that heaven takes notice when you walk away from ungodly associations. Nothing escapes My eye, even in the night when you lay awake meditating on My word and My law concerning the things that you are facing. Know that you aren’t alone, and you aren’t up against a wall. Feel the refreshing down in the sap of your soul, for I AM rooting Myself in you and vining Myself in you. Yes, I AM keeping you saturated in My Goodness even in the drought and dryness of the season you are walking in.
Your dreams, says the Father, have not cast their young. The assault from hell against your life has not extinguished the prospects of the vision I buried down deep inside you like hidden treasure. From this day forth, the fruit that the enemy thought would die on the vine in your life is now becoming lush and ripe for harvest. The leaves of hope on the boughs of your branches are now supple and healthy, no longer wilting under the blighting curse of disappointment. I say to you put your hand to something, and I will bless it. Step out in faith, and I will cause you to take territory and claim new ground that will prosper in everything you apply yourself to. Don’t be distracted by the godless, even those close to you who mock and scorn who I AM in your life. They are as the chaff that My wind even now will blow away, and their howls of spite will no longer be heard in your land, says God.
August 7, 2020. The Father says today, I AM not daunted by your to-do list or your prayer needs. Cry out to Me. Bring those things before Me that make you mad and make you doubt. All those issues that keep sleep from your eyes and peace from your heart are as nothing — cast them all at My feet. Choose to be careful for nothing for that would be double work because I care for you, and I AM always at work responding to the dictates of your faith to see deliverance come to your situation. I AM not delaying; instead, I AM expediting your requests and dispatching angels to your side to work in you and with you to bring about needed change. Be discerning and trim your words before the angel of My presence, lest he destroys the work of your hands. They come for your words, and if they find perverse speech on your lips or contradictory statements, they stand aside, fold their arms and wait for clearance to move further. They know nothing of the intent of the heart; all they know is the character of your actions and the quality of the words of your mouth that they act on as requisitions from heaven — unless they are impeded by express unbelief in your heart or mind.
So put away from you all perverse speech and conversation, opinions, and exclamations contrary to My word. Choose to be a fountain of sweet water and not bitter. Refuse to allow anything comparable with the curse to be articulated in your mind or on your lips. What you could get away with and what didn’t matter seemingly in times past regarding crass or casual conversation will not do in the season you are walking in now. I AM bringing a groundswell of blessing and a breaking up of the deeps of My power in your life. The open heaven is appearing above you to bring in those things that are needed and drive far off and far away from you those situations, conditions, and yes, even people who have no place in My plan for your life. Yes, there is the unknown part of it, for I lead you forth with joy and cause you to go out with peace — not with explanations and rationale. Accept that you won’t know everything that tomorrow entails, but you rule and reign all the same as you pray out My mysteries with tongues that cannot be uttered in articulate speech.
August 6, 2020. The Father says today, I AM elevating the work of your hands and putting on display the gifts, talents, skill, and anointing that I’ve placed inside you for My Gory. You’ve wondered why you’ve put so much effort into something that seemingly hasn’t come to fruition, but suddenly now with just a slight alteration and different manner of presentation the lights go up and all the attention will be upon you for promotion and acknowledgment of what I’ve done in and through you in My Kingdom. It will open a door for you to cause many to know your testimony and receive the witness of what your walk with Me is all about. Things that have been misconstrued and even caused you to be misunderstood and accused falsely will be cleared up as My favor visits your life in an unusual and unique way.
There is also now manifesting a provisioning and prosperity for your benefit as resources of opportunity, connection, collaboration and yes, even money will start to pour in on the left and the right — just like a tub filling up with water that you might wash away the stigma of failure and lack that has daunted you in times past but now will come to an end. No more looking back and waiting for the next disappointment in a long string of disappointments — those days are over. You are now moving forward, not in the flawed schemes of men, but in the unfailing initiatives of My Kingdom that are now unfolding to you ready to spring into manifestation your highest heart’s desire and greatest dream fulfilled.
August 5, 2020. The Father says today, you are moving forward in a new way. The old wineskin isn’t just inconvenient; it’s a disaster waiting to happen. Align your thinking with the emerging initiatives of My kingdom and foster those dynamics in your daily life. Maintaining the old only results in stagnation and disappointment. You’ve asked yourself, “Do things always have to be this hard?” No beloved, they do not. Only the way of the transgressor is hard. When your life ceases to be “yoke easy and burden light,” then you know you’ve strayed from the path of life. Adjust your heart and your mind. Why? Because things are the way they are because of what you are doing. If you want something different, you must do something different. If you spend all your energy trying to prop up what isn’t working anymore — nothing changes. That is not My Will. Even though I am the God who NEVER changes, I nonetheless require you to live in a constant state of change — that’s what repentance is all about.
No more complacency. No more giving in to that feeling of helplessness and desperation. You are not helpless because the Helper; the Holy Spirit lives on the inside of you. If you were genuinely incapable, My word would be a lie, and of all men and women, you would be most miserable. You’ve faced exasperation and exclaimed, “If I only knew what to do…” That is the voice of the soul despairing its lack of control in the situation. You DO know what to do, for I am your WISDOM, and I live on the inside of you. Do you want out? Listen to My voice speaking in the silence between your thoughts. Are you ready for a breakthrough? Then go out with joy and be led forth with peace. Joy establishes the direction and peace establishes the timing. Leave distractions behind. Reject the tyranny of the urgent and focus on the important. Step up and step out on that highway I spoke of in My Word — that the wayfaring man though a fool will not err therein. Are you ready? Move forward then, one step at a time.
August 4, 2020. The Father says today, act on My Word. Reach out and grasp the rhema of the prophetic over your life and put it into action. Another Word, another prophet, another strategy is not your answer. What I have already said to you is much more potent than what you are waiting for Me to do or say further. I have sanctioned your way forward. I AM moving you from authority to authorization. I AM taking you beyond permissiveness to the permission of heaven. I have, and I AM opening up latitude and indulgence in your life to see the cry of your heart become a reality. Look no further. Lean not to your understanding or the strength of others, for that is misdirection and idolatry. There is no missing ingredient for I AM. There is nothing up ahead that must happen for I AM. There is no impediment in heaven or earth to hold you back for I AM.
Go out this day and be who YOU ARE in Christ, and I will go with you and be who I AM, and that will make all the difference. Don’t worry about what others think. Refuse to listen to your critics or the do-nothings who are convinced there is nothing to do. I called you. I equipped you. I have empowered you. What are you waiting for? This is your NOW season. Now is all I have to give you, for I don’t live in the past, and the future is just the figment of a fallen creature’s imagination. Step into the now of My deliverance and My provision. Accept it. Realize its’ strength. Believe that you receive, and you will have whatsoever you desire. Those who insist otherwise are the congregation of the uninformed. Forget them. They are the small dust of the balance that only make a difference in their own minds. My hand is upon you. My heart is directing you. Be prompt and be obedient for your response time to Me is a metric of My response time to you — so ACT!
August 3, 2020. The Father says today, this is a season of forward momentum in your life, so get ready to run. You’ve been listening, and you’ve heard a sound — it is the sound of the rustling of Angels in the mulberry trees — as David of old. Move forward. Ascend in worship and descend in warfare against the enemy and his oppression. This is a running time for you as the prophet outran Ahab, so you will outrun the strategy of hell against you and land in the place of great blessing and favor in the days ahead. You will RUN the way of My commandments. As you run, you will not be alone. As Elijah learned, many around you have not bowed their knee to Baal. There will be many on the right and the left, and as you attain the prize and win the race, others will as well.
Be fleet of foot and determined in your mind. As you make your way toward the mark of the prize of the high calling, I AM your refreshing. Drink deeply of My Spirit and find the stamina to carry on. Things are being torn down and destroyed around you that I might do a great building up. I AM doing a new thing, says the Father, so get ready. Put on your running shoes. As the children of Israel, when they came out of Egypt, eat your food with your staff in your hand and your shoes on your feet. Immerse yourself in My truth, and not the opinions of men for the opinions of men will not sustain you where I AM taking you. It is a serious time. It is a serious time, but also a time of blessing. Blessings you have waited on for a long time are on their way to you this day as you humble yourself and find a place of renewed cooperation with Me and My word in your life, says the Father!
August 2, 2020. The Father says today, be flexible, interruptible, and patient. What looks like a setback and a disappointment is a setup for blessing and clearing the distractions ahead of you to propel you into an upgraded future with many unexpected benefits. Do you like surprises? You’ve asked, and you’ve wondered, “God, what about the PLAN?” Realize this, says the Father; I AM not in love with a plan. I AM in love with you. I didn’t send My Son to die for a plan. I sent Him to die for you. When I told you to hold everything loosely, I meant everything. There are things in your life you think are written in stone, but they are not — they are written in sand. Things change, and people change, and My plan for your life adjusts according to those realities.
When the tableau changes and the view whizzing by your window seems unfamiliar, take a moment, take a breath, and anchor your sense of self in who I AM in your life, for I AM unchanging and ever-present. When grief and longing for the past rise in your heart make a positive choice to render up to Me the boisterous and loud sacrifice of praise. Positive emotion releases the issues of life I’ve embedded in your spirit man, where I live on the inside of you. When tears of anger and frustration surface, get a hold of yourself and with all your might step out and move in the opposite spirit. The enemy is confounded when he doesn’t know what you will do next, and he totally doesn’t understand joy. Be joyful then. My kingdom doesn’t just bring joy — it IS joy and joy kicks the enemy’s legs right out from under him!
August 1, 2020. The Father says today, you are mighty in My Kingdom. That may not be how you see yourself, and that may not be how others see you, but I have declared the decree, and that is the lens through which I AM acting in your life. I AM changing things and shifting things around regarding supply and the day-to-day activity that surrounds you. Hold everything loosely. Be willing to let go when necessary. Don’t allow your sense of security to cause you to hold on to what I have put My hand on. This is house cleaning time. The detriments and the hindrances are now going, and the blessing and My favor are coming. Yes, this will involve shaking, which is never pleasant, but I want you to put your faith in the shift I AM bringing even though there is the unknown part of it. Know and accept in your heart that I AM calling you out. I AM leading you out into a place of total dependency on me and not your understood capacity for how you are used to getting things done.
This is a time of letting go. Letting go of the past. Even letting go of things going back to childhood that shaped your views and your ideas about who you are and what you are capable of. I have called you to be a doer. You are called as Joseph, who was the doer of everything that was done. Say that to yourself — often. Say, “I am a doer of all those things that are done…” You are not a mere observer, are you? You cried out to Me, and you declared, “Thy Kingdom Come!” My Kingdom doesn’t come with observation, and now is the time to rise and do exploits in My name. There are things I want to put under your hand that haven’t been blessed in times past but now you will be blessed as you willingly take responsibility for things that intimidated you in days gone by. Be responsible. Say, “My fault, My responsibility.” Say, “I will be responsible for that,” and you will find with the responsibility comes the SUDDENLIES of My favor that you’ve been waiting for so long to manifest in your life.
