December 14, 2018. The Father says today, I AM not a far-off God. I AM not far off, and I AM not hiding Myself. You have asked the question, “where are you, God?” Pause a moment and hear My still small voice, says the Father, for I AM right here, as close as the breath of your body. I see your distress, and I see your desperation. Feel My arms of grace encircling you and giving you strength for the day and strength to endure what seems so unendurable. What the enemy means for your destruction will fall out in your favor as I move to heal and restore and reconstitute your hope and your trust in Me, even in the darkest of seasons.
The enemy that lurks in secret places is being routed before you. Your eyes will see it, for I have seen the cleanness of your hands and the innocence of your heart. I will act, and I am moving to save you from every threat and intimidation of the enemy against you. You may feel helpless, but you are not helpless. Things may look bleak, but they are not bleak. You may feel as though your world is crashing in but look again, says the Father – see the hope and life that I AM bringing forth in your behalf. You are not forgotten, and I have not hidden My face from you. Even now, trouble and vexation are going, and deliverance is being manifested to restore your trust and reconstitute your testimony of My faithfulness in your life.
December 13, 2018. The Father says today, you are not forgotten, and I haven’t set you aside. The enemy wants you to think it’s all over, but you haven’t seen anything yet. You have trusted, and you have believed, and I have noticed that, says the Father. Your expectation and hope will not perish but will come to pass without fail. I AM not a God of failure, and I AM not a God who sits back watching you suffer and languish under challenging circumstances. Call upon Me. Concerning the works of My hands command Me and see what happens next.
Troubles and trials will not prevail against you, says God. The gavel is coming down in your favor. There will be vindication in your behalf, brought about by My hand. What man has threatened and what circumstances appear to be will be turned around, for this is your “turn around” time. You will not be disappointed and your confidence in My promise will not come to nothing. Even when you feel frail and weak and about to cave in, so I will show up in sudden deliverance to change what things look like and cause you to cast off the garment of heaviness and set your feet to dancing as the enemy is wholly turned aside in your situation and circumstance.
December 12, 2018. The Father says today, when others heap hate and scorn on you, I will show up in great mercy and compassion to deliver you in a moment of time. Know this, that the gates of death will not prevent you and the jaws of hell will not hold you. I went to the cross to pay the price that your life might be “as in heaven so on earth.” Shall I ordain a thing and it not be established by My hand? Trust Me, says the Father, and let Me take it from here. What you cannot make happen and what seems so unchangeable in your circumstance will yield in a moment of time to what I AM about to do on your behalf.
I AM your salvation and your helper in the day of trouble, says God. Nothing you are going through takes Me by surprise. I AM not pacing before the throne wondering what I AM going to do about what is happening in your life. Adopt this day a mentality that accepts that you are seated in heavenly places with Me no matter what things look like in the natural. Run into the high tower of My name and remain there in a posture of trust and faith knowing that I AM working both to will and to do My good pleasure where you are concerned. The plans that the enemy has for you will come to nothing. They will be snared and fall into the pit that they dug for you, and you will come out rejoicing, knowing that I was with you all along as you put your trust in Me and relied on My sure promise in the midst of the dark situation.
December 11, 2018. The Father says today, I AM your refuge and your high tower. When crushing debts burden you down, and destitution looms, I will come through for you and be known by My name JEHOVAH-JIREH. As I was the ram caught in the thicket to meet Abram’s need, so I will be there just at the right time in your situation and your obligations will be stamped PAID IN FULL by the Master’s hand! When others suggest that things aren’t working out as you planned, just remember that Abraham wasn’t working from a plan – he was trusting in Me. He went out “knowing not where” but in the end, My promise toward him was fulfilled just as My promise toward you will surely come to pass, says God.
I AM a God who is pro-vision, says the Father. It is who I am and what I do. In your time of need, you will be remembered. Though all around you may be faithless and unbelieving – that doesn’t make My promise of none effect where your lack is concerned. Receive this day and expect the provision of Calvary to be made available to you in substantive ways that you can take to the bank. You don’t have to be good enough or lucky enough or smart enough. You just need to trust in what I have already made possible. Just make the positive choice in the midst of seeming downturn to mix your faith together with great expectation that the deliverance you have longed to see is being made manifest, even this day, says God.
December 10, 2018. The Father says today, this is a day of celebration and testimony. Let your mouth speak and no longer hold back. The enemy has threatened, and the enemy has sought to intimidate your testimony, but I say to you be in high spirits, for I AM with you to put you over in life and cause every obstacle to highest heart’s desire and greatest dream fulfilled to be removed from before you. I AM working in your defense, says God. There are those that say there is no hope for you in God, but that is the lie put forward by the enemy – it will come to nothing and your critics and detractors will be ashamed when they see My goodness overflow your life in radical measure in the days ahead.
You will not be turned away, says the Father. You will not be denied in any way but those who have opposed you will be turned back. They will stumble, and they will perish because I am militating in your behalf to rebuke the nations and destroy the wicked who have sought to blot your name out and remove from you the blessings that I have ordained. Your eyes will see the overthrow of the opposer, says God. When the dust settles, and the smoke of battle clears, you will be left standing for I AM God forever, and in your situation and circumstance I will show Myself mighty to save and mighty to deliver beyond all your wildest expectations.
December 9, 2018. The Father says today, My glory is in the heavens and My glory is in you. The whole of My kingdom is encapsulated in you in righteousness and joy and the peace of one whose warfare has been done away with. You are not estranged from My throne, says the Father. You are seated with Me in heavenly places. That is your native state as an entitled member of My family. The whole of your citizenship rights are secure, not by your knowledge or moral perfection but by the shed blood of Calvary. Rest in that provision. Know that as you enter into rest, so will there be manna on the ground every morning and water from the rock to refresh and revive you every day of your earthly sojourn.
You are My workmanship, says God, and I AM ever mindful of all aspects of your life. There is nothing going on in the earth that causes Me to put My attention elsewhere other than counting every hair of your head and sending My angels to draw near to you lest you dash your foot against a stone. I have crowned you this day, and I have given you a manifest domain over all the works of My hands. As all things are under My feet, so all things are under your feet. You are not below. You are above. You are not the downtrodden. You are in Me in the heavens far above all principalities and powers that might set themselves against you. Accept and see this as the starting place for each and every day and you will, therefore, see of the travail of your soul and be satisfied.
December 8, 2018. The Father says today, I AM your salvation from those who hate and persecute you. They claim they are just telling it like it is. They believe that stripping you of all hope is a calling on their life, but they don’t understand they are under a false anointing, a spirit from the depths of hell that I will put down and destroy in your behalf. The reproaches that come against you fall upon Me, says God, and they are extinguished in the work of the cross. Never forget that. I was despised that you might come to honor. I was rejected that you might be accepted. When mother and father forsake you, I will lift you up, for I AM the God who brings you out of the solitary place and causes you to find your tribe and your place in My house.
When the enemy seeks to tear you like a lion rending its prey, know that I will be your deliverance at that moment. They claim you are only getting what you deserve, but they fail to look at the situation through the lens of Calvary’s cross. I will render inert against you every word spoken that is contrary to how I see you. Even at times when you feel you stand entirely alone, know that I AM with you. I AM here. Talk to Me. Hear My still small voice of comfort and encouragement even in the darkest moments. This is your hour. This is when yoke easy and burden light kicks in and lifts you out of the mire of despondency and hopelessness. I AM working, says God, and I AM litigating in your behalf for I AM angry with the wicked every day. Though they bend their bow against you and send forth the arrows of death to bring you down, I will deliver you and cause all the mischief of the ungodly to become as dust under your feet.
December 7, 2018. The Father says today, be correctable. The chastening I give is proof that you are My beloved child that I will never neglect or abandon. No chastening is pleasant, but in the end as you yield to My correction, blessing will be the result and answers will come that you have been waiting for. I know your weaknesses, says God, and I AM aware of every point of vulnerability that the enemy tries to take advantage of in your character. Those things that you cannot change and feel powerless to do differently are the very areas in your life that My grace is more fully poured out. I have shown you mercy and will continue to have mercy upon you until every last vestige of the past no longer haunts you and you walk free from all the bondage of darkness that has held you back.
This is the season of returning, says God . In returning to Me in areas of your heart where estrangement crept in, I will now flood with My light and the fullness of My love. I love you because I love you because I love you. Unending love and ceaseless mercy are all I have to show you. When tears come, and the breakers of sorrow overwhelm your soul in waves of regret, know that I am there to comfort and encourage you. When your detractors and critics point the finger and say you are just getting what you had coming to you, I will sweep them away with a wave of My hand and encompass you with My embrace and surround you with My unearned favor. It’s who I AM and what I do, says the Father, and My promise to you is that they will be ashamed suddenly, but you will never be put to shame, for your trust is in Me.
December 6, 2018. The Father says today, take time to start every morning with your mind and heart focused upon Me. When you rush out to the demands of your day before spending time in My presence, you are not doing yourself any favors. The enemy will be out there with his foolishness and distractions, and I want you to be armed with the resources of strength and grace that are only found in the quiet place alone with Me. Let your mouth pray. Direct your cry to Me. Seek My face before you seek the face of man, and you will find the complexion of your life shifting from struggle and unending difficulty to effortless fulfillment of every promise I have made in your behalf.
Those who work iniquity in your midst and those who embrace foolishness and darkness are being removed. I abhor the bloody and deceitful man and will execrate that person from your life, for they are a detriment and not a blessing. Don’t get in the way of what I am doing, says God, for it is for your benefit that My hand is moving to cleanse the ground that I have given you to stand on. As I establish My purposes and My truth in your life, your responsibility is to keep following the straight path and the narrow way of acute listening to Me every step of the way. The enemy will entice you and flatter you and failing in that, they will threaten and attempt to bully you into giving up on your destiny. Refuse to listen, says God, for they will fall by their own counsels, but you will remain because you have kept your trust in Me each and every day.
December 5, 2018. The Father says today, I AM your righteousness. You don’t have to try to be good enough, for that is only religious striving. I hear you when you call. It is not necessary for you to raise your voice as though you don’t have My attention. The fact that you are in distress only indicates that I am about to enlarge you and magnify My mercies over your life. You are not going to be put to shame. I will not allow the enemy to make merchandise of you or to turn you into some cautionary example of one who believed yet did not receive the promise. My heart toward you is yes and amen, says God, so trust in what I am about to do.
I have set you apart for Myself, says the Father. Get your focus off the outward turmoil in your life and come into the place of communion and union with Me. Offer up to Me in the secret place the sacrifices of praise and worship from your lips. As you express your trust in Me and your reliance upon Me, even so, the word will come and the report will surface that the battle is over and deliverance has come. There can be no other outcome for you, says the Father, for I AM increasing the corn of your bounty and the wine of My gladness within you beyond measure. You will lay down in peace and sleep secure in the knowledge that tomorrow is another day and therein will be found the full deliverance and blessing that you have cried out to Me for so plaintively.
December 4, 2018. The Father says today, that I have heard the voice of your cry. I will never ignore you when you are in trouble. When difficulties come, and panic sets in, just take one moment of stillness to close your eyes, take a breath and remember I AM with you and will never leave you nor forsake you in any way. It doesn’t matter what the enemy has planned or who is in agreement with him. Even when close confidants and family members reject you and call for your downfall, it doesn’t change one of My promises in your life. They think you are beyond saving because you didn’t do what they expected and demanded you to do. What they fail to take into account of is the fact that I AM your HELPER. It’s who I am and what I do. So, RELAX and simply trust that I AM working, and you are going to come out alright.
December 3, 2018. The Father says today, I have hidden you from the wrath of the ungodly. There will always be those in your life who have an opinion about what you are doing wrong. Ask not whether everyone agrees with what I have said to you, instead ask yourself why would you seek their approval in the first place? They have confused anger with passion and mistaken sinful wrath with heartfelt conviction. The outcome they have imagined for you is a vain thing, for I AM your defense and will extinguish every one of their threats against you with the enormity of My promises that are manifesting in your situation right now.
I have anointed you, says the Father, with the oil of joy, so go ahead and laugh. Go ahead and rejoice, for those who demand that you take them so seriously will be held in derision the very moment they spring the trap they think they have so craftily laid to ensnare you. Know this – he that touches you touches the apple, the pupil of My eye – I will have an autonomic response to protect you and deliver you in that instant. So, go ahead and ask, says the Father, for I AM waiting to give your enemies over to you as your inheritance. Those who set themselves in opposition against you at the end of the day will find themselves witness to the table of bounty I have spread before you in spite of them. This is your portion and your inheritance, and your righteousness is of Me.
December 2, 2018. The Father says today, your blessing is already provided for. The finished work of Calvary makes every prayer that you could ever pray a past-tense provision in your life. Things that you pray for will now become manifest in your life as you walk out the timeline of My faithfulness. When you understand the entitlement and access that redemption affords you – then you will realize that the answers I give are not coming – they are already here. This is a redemptive reality, and it is available in you NOW in the glory within where I dwell by My Spirit. Accept this and embrace it as the default state of grace that you walk around in every day.
Reject the contaminated counsel of the enemy. He has plans and suggestions that will continuously stream from the pit of hell in the words of those who have no love of the truth. When they come, don’t stand still but instantly walk the other way. When flattering words abound and they invite you to take your place among them, immediately excuse yourself and find the secret place where I AM waiting. When those who revel in pessimism and sarcasm ask you to recline at their table, let your spirit recoil as from a striking serpent. I have so much more for you than this, says God, for I have rooted you and grounded you in the depths of My refreshing. When all others have withered and dried up, you will be a tree of righteousness full of sap, prospering in the things whereunto I have called you and moving inexorably day by day into your full destiny in Me.
December 1, 2018. The Father says today, I have made you one with Me. We are not two, we are one. This is the simplicity that is in Christ. I have condescended into your life that I might take up My habitation in your human spirit. I AM in you, and you are in Me. Nothing shall overthrow or contradict what happens next in your life because of this one great fact. You have ascended in Me and whether you feel like it or not you are high above all principalities and powers. The enemy can threaten, and the enemy can rage but who I AM determines what happens next. I AM in you, and you are in Me deeper and deeper every day. Because I cannot be diminished, you cannot be diminished. Because I cannot be taken captive, so you cannot be taken captive. Accept it. Believe it. Express it as your total and complete expectation.
You are the subject of My outpoured mercies, says God. In My wrath have I thundered against your enemies. In My anger, I have come down to deliver. The mountains melt and the hills tremble. The fountains of the deep are broken up, and the heavens are opened in your behalf. No longer be dismayed or in despair for I AM working. Come alongside Me, for I have come alongside you by My Spirit that you might know and be blessed. Come into alignment with your words and in your thinking regarding all that I have promised. Do not be talked out of what I have spoken over you, for My promise will not lie and will not fail to come to pass as you war with your words, in faith believing, regarding all that I have declared over you, even this day.
