January 31, 2018. The Father says today, My eyes are upon you at all times. I AM not ignoring you and I have not turned My face from you. On the cross I turned My face from My only son, and that redemptive act ASSURES YOU that I will never turn My face from you – no matter what. My ear is open to your cry. I AM near to you and your broken heart speaks to Me and moves Me to extend grace in fullness in your life. It doesn’t matter what transpires in your life or how many afflictions you face, I will deliver you out of them all. I will not deliver you from some of life’s afflictions. I will deliver you from ALL and ALL means ALL. Refuse to allow the congregation of the uninformed or the illegitimate authorities of religion to suggest otherwise, for that is an obscenity against My faithfulness.
Cast your burden on Me for I AM sustaining you. Choose to be careful for nothing. Say of your soul “I will never be moved…” When I want to move you, it will be in blessing and promotion, not oppression or affliction. Never means never. You will never be moved by the enemy. Can you take NEVER for an answer? When worries mount up in your thinking just replace them with the multitude of My comforts. I AM the Comforter and I AM the Helper. That is who I AM, that is what I do. I have seen your dependence on Me. I AM your healing RIGHT NOW. I will comfort you as a mother comforts a suckling child. I will feed you on My faithfulness. Put all thoughts of abandonment out of your mind for I have and will continue to turn your mourning into joy and give you the beauty that only I can give from the ashes of bitter circumstance, says God.
January 30, 2018. The Father says today, you are not a bad parent. Even as I gave you power to become a son of God, so I gave you power to express My Father heart, that same heart by which I love and lead you. You are a leader. You are not a failure as a parent. Because I AM on the inside of you and I AM the ultimate Father – you are therefore fully equipped and graced to have children and to raise those children to maturity, with success and happiness in life. Refuse to allow insecurity, falsehood or the lie of the enemy to suggest you cannot be or have not been a successful parent. You are raising champions that will excel and come to promotion in everything they put their hand to. Accept no substitute wisdom for what I have said about you. Who I AM on the inside of you determines your ability to parent and not any other thing.
It doesn’t matter if your parents weren’t perfect. Forgive them and move on, not living in the past. It doesn’t matter if one or both of your parents were not in the picture. All you need know and all you need to do is look to My word and raise your children REGARDLESS of their age in the way that they should go. You are never wrong to love, and you are never wrong to correct. An uncorrected child is a parentless child even if mom and dad are right there. Do not fear bringing correction, for if you love your children you will correct them as necessary. You don’t have to be perfect, you just have to be obedient. As you correct your children I will give you rest. As you love your children your home and your tribe will become partakers of a fountain of life that will bless them and promote them from generation to generation, says God.
January 29, 2018. The Father says today, take care of My business and I will take care of your business. In the years before I came out of the wilderness in the power of the Spirit, I walked the earth as a small businessman. I get the bottom line, says God. I know and understand supply side economics and the demands of what it takes to be in business and be successful in business. Know that your business is My business when you choose to do business spiritually and not according to the wisdom of the world. The day to day affairs and challenges you face are not beneath My taking notice. I AM making Myself known to guide and bring you to the place that you walk in the kingdom, even in the arena of industry, business and finance. This is the Joseph anointing and it is available to put you over in your endeavors.
Listen to My voice for I AM speaking. I AM the voice speaking over your shoulder saying this is the way, walk you in it. As you listen and act upon your faith and not your fears, you will see good and positive things happen. Open your heart to receive the understanding necessary to see change come, problems evaporate, and promotion come. Realize once and for all that money moves by the Spirit. Money is like blood. It must flow. As you handle your finances according to kingdom cash flow, you will become a conduit of blessing out to others and live out of the surplus of the 100-fold return that will come to you as a result. This is how My kingdom works and this is how you will get from where you are to where you want to be in your business, says God!
January 28, 2018. The Father says today, this is your NOW MOMENT to redefine your boundaries. Over time the enemy seeks to build barriers of pressure to keep you from putting your foot on new territory that I have given you in My Kingdom. Never allow the pressures of life to move you in that direction. Turn your face into the storm and command those winds and waves to cease. Do not take no for an answer. Turn broadside to the greatest challenge in your life and step forward by My Spirit into a radical outcome. This is where we separate the men from the boys, says the Father. Are you ready for a “come up higher” assignment? Say this in your heart, “greater is the pressure of God’s Spirit flowing out of me than the pressure of the enemy trying to overcome me…” Say it till it is true. Say it until it becomes your default inner response to every challenge of life.
I AM calling upon you to strip away some buffers you have placed around yourself for comfort’s sake. It is time to love the unlovely. It is time to show favor to those who have not championed My blessing in your life. The most radical thing you can do is make yourself a positive blessing in the lives of those who have been anything but a blessing back to you. Let love find its perfect expression in your life. Refuse to be manipulated or controlled. Speak truth and live every day with a willing heart and a hand open to those in need. Expose the charlatans and false professors. Step out as a purified example of walking in love, in generosity, in righteousness and truth. This is who you are. This is your highest and best self that I created you to manifest, every day in every way regardless of the pressure. Act now – and see your horizons become filled with My promise.
January 27, 2018. The Father says today, that the blood that was shed on the cross speaks louder than your failure. It is true that the choices you make and have made, the failures you have had and are enduring say something about who you are. The blood of Calvary however is also speaking. The blood that was shed in your behalf is speaking as well, and it is speaking louder than your failure. The blood is speaking louder than your sin. The blood is speaking louder than your sickness. The blood of Jesus is speaking louder than those who hate and criticize you. The blood is speaking louder than the court of man to condemn you. The blood speaks, beloved – and what the blood speaks over you supersedes what any other voice is saying regarding what happens next in your life.
When Cain slew Abel and Abel’s blood seeped into the ground around his lifeless body, it cried out for vengeance. Abel’s blood demands judgment but the blood of Christ demands and commands that you go free and be set at liberty! The blood of the Son ran down the timbers of the cross and cried out – not for vengeance but for clemency. The blood cries out, you are healed. The blood cries out your forgiven. The blood cries out, you are set free. The blood cries out for your miracle, your deliverance and your freedom from every chain. The blood speaks beloved, and it doesn’t matter what the circumstance says or what any man says because the blood of Jesus and what the blood is saying over you right now constitutes your emancipation and liberty from every limiting condition and situation in your life, says God.
January 26, 2018. The Father says today, are you loosing what needs to be loosed and binding what needs to be bound? Many times, Beloved, men say “I bind this” or “I loose that” but they never check with heaven first! They are operating in presumption and for that reason, their fleshly petitions and declarations go unanswered. When you are sick or a loved one is ill, ask yourself the question “Is sickness bound in heaven?” Let Me tell you, says the Father, there are no flu shots in heaven! There are no emergency rooms or walk-in clinics! Why? Because SICKNESS is BOUND in heaven! Do you know this? Or has someone convinced you that I use sickness to bring glory to Myself? If you know sickness is bound in heaven, then you then have the authority to bind sickness on the earth and see it leave! Make your mind up! The same is true for poverty, sin, strife, loss – all of these things are disallowed and bound in heaven! When you know this and act upon it you will see answered prayer like never before.
My plan for your life is that you experience the reality of heaven manifest on earth in every experience of life. Your assignment, says God, is to implement the mandate of My word that declares “as in heaven – so on earth”. My purpose is to make your life a little bit of heaven to go to heaven in! Your destiny is to be as one that walks through waking life as one that dreams for the joy and the glory you are experiencing. You will declare “I dreamed, but I didn’t dream this good!” This is the day that I bring forth the more than you could ever ask or think blessing in your life. Get your head wrapped around what I AM doing in the heavenly and what I did (past tense) on the cross 2000 years ago. Be an enforcer by your prayers, declarations and by your faith in the promises of heaven until EVERY contradiction to My promises in your life or those around you is utterly banished from the scene!
January 25, 2018. The Father says today, I AM blessing you and keeping you every moment of this day. My face is shining upon you like a mercury vapor lamp, dispelling all the darkness that would encroach upon your life. My countenance is lifted up over you this day like a canopy of peace that nothing and no one can disturb. Receive it and accept it as the gift of heaven over your life this day. Showers of My grace are coursing in rivulets of favor down every avenue of your life. I AM upholding you and moving you toward the finish line of this assignment where you will be found faultless in the winner’s circle with a garland of achievement laid upon your brow.
I AM blessing your house and I AM blessing your path. Every place you put your foot today I have given you the title deed. Satan is not the ruling prince over your life or anything that pertains to you. He is defeated. He is disenfranchised. I took the keys from him that he would like to use to lock you down. I have given you the authority to bind him with the chains of your faith and see the captives go free that he has bound for so many years. Rejoice, says the Father, with exceeding great joy, for My kingdom IS joy, My kingdom IS peace and My kingdom IS entitlement. You are the Entitled of Heaven this day and forevermore!
January 24, 2018. The Father says today, your faith is establishing you. There are some things you are expecting ME to do that I AM indeed accomplishing THROUGH the faith I have implanted in your heart. That is why so many times when I performed miracles that I said, “go thy way – THY faith has made thee whole…” I want you to GET and to UNDERSTAND that it is OK to have FAITH in YOUR faith! Didn’t I give it to you? Then why wouldn’t you have faith and confidence in the gift of heaven placed in your heart to PUT you OVER in life? You are waiting for Me to show you a way, but beloved, just GO THY WAY and see what your faith produces when you lay hold of the hem of My garment for your miracle!
It is time to get rid of those weak doctrines and dishwater teachings that only serve to keep you marinating in unbelief and self-pity. Stand up in the boldness of My word. Reject the pontifications and rationalizations of the congregation of the uninformed. Just go out and charge hell with a water pistol and see if the fire hose of My glory isn’t backing up your audacity! As you have believed so will it be done unto you. How are you believing? Are you planning for outcome or disappointment? Are you accepting some religious mentality’s reasoning for why your prayer might not be answered? Let all such bloviating platitudes not once be named in your hearing! You are an overcomer! You are more than a victor! It is My good pleasure to give you the kingdom as you go out conquering and to conquer, knowing I AM with you, knowing that the sword of My word and the shield of your faith will quench every assault of the wicked one!
January 23, 2018. The Father says today, if you ask Me I will give you the heathen for your inheritance. That is what Cornelius the centurion did in the book of Acts, and by his faith opened the door of salvation, not only to his entire family but to the whole Gentile race. Your family and lost loved ones are really such an insignificant challenge to My Spirit, says God. Ask of Me. Seek Me out to know My mind and watch how I work to bring about highest heart’s desire and greatest dream fulfilled.
My delight is to hear your petitions and respond. I AM so invested in answering your prayers that I have set you aside as a specific example of one who makes a petition and is granted answers in full beyond any expectation. I AM the more than you can ask or think God, so go ahead and ask. I will fulfill your petitions because you are looking to Me and not to man. As you ask, I will give. As you seek, I will see to it that you find. As you knock, I will open every closed door to you.
January 22, 2018. The Father says today, I will satisfy you with My goodness. I know you are longing for more. I hear the cry of hunger in your soul. You will not go unanswered. When your heart is heavy, I will send from above and make you glad again with the goodness of My word and My promise. Do not allow the challenges and problems around you to weigh you down or crush you. Refuse to borrow trouble from what may or may not happen tomorrow or the next day. My grace operates on a 24-hour cycle. Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof. Drink deeply of My deliverance and apply to today’s difficulty, knowing I will be on hand again tomorrow with manna in the morning and water from the rock to strengthen and refresh you.
I AM with you today. I AM with you always. I will never leave you nor forsake you . Others have suggested I have hung you out to dry but that is not who I AM. That is not what I do. I never delight to abandon My children or dangle them over the flames of some fiery trial. You are going to make it. You are going to make it through and come out on top. There is no need to rush around trying to protect yourself from evils real or imagined. I say to you, be careful for nothing. When worries press in upon you, say out loud “I could care-LESS!” When you want to push the panic button, open your mouth and with an act of your will give thanks. Go ahead and dance in advance because I AM infusing you with boldness and confidence and faith to get through the challenge and come out shining with victory and glory!
January 21, 2018. The Father says today, recognize when wrath and anger are impeding your blessing. Just because others around you are losing their temper and making fools of themselves doesn’t mean you have permission to do likewise. Trust Me and stay in the quiet place. In the quiet place of trustfulness and peace I will deliver you from the violent man. No matter if others use anger to get what they want. Their end will always be in the dry place, but as you forsake anger and all wrath I will cause you to dwell in the well-watered land of My highest and best blessing.
When you can’t help yourself and just want to explode in fury – choose in your heart to defer that outburst. My glory will come upon you to promote and increase you when you ignore the transgression of those that are sinning against you and just rest in the secret place with Me. Remember this – contention only comes by pride and we both know where pride leads, do we not? Refuse the prideful response and you will see Me move into the situation and bring you out of the situation, uncontaminated and free to move on into My highest and best blessing.
January 20, 2018. The Father says today, I know the way that you take. Though you may feel lost, you are not lost, for I AM on the inside of you directing every step. The heat of the situation will not destroy you. You are not being destroyed, you are being refined. In the midst of the pressure I AM working, not to harm you but to teach the enemy a lesson not to put his hand on your life. He will see by the end of the matter that his lies and his assault have only served to set you up for promotion and increase. You are coming out of this without even the smell of smoke on your garments.
Let your mouth pray for I am listening. The natural mind wants to ask the question “God, where are you …?” I’m here, and I’m listening. My ear is open to your cry. I AM not ignoring you. It is difficult for the natural mind to recognize My voice when the enemy is pressing down on your life so intensely. Go deeper. Listen not with the ear of natural perception but with the hearing of your human spirit. That is where I live and where I AM enthroned. You will hear My voice saying, “this is the way – walk you in it…” That will be the shortest distance between where you are now and where the exit is from the challenge you are facing. In the midst of the difficulty take time for self-examination. Be willing to identify unfruitful and unhelpful attitudes and habits that only engender more misery. Bring them to Me and leave them as sins forgiven and transgressions repented of. This is a good thing and out of all the challenge of the current situation My blessing will be made manifest.
January 19, 2018. The Father says today, commit every day’s projects to Me and I will keep your mind focused and receptive to the task. You are not scatter brained. You are not absent minded because you have the mind of Christ. When needed I will bring to your remembrance not just some things but ALL things that are needed and necessary at that moment. My mind is reinforcing your thoughts, your memory and your grasp of every changing situation. Never allow yourself to be confounded. You aren’t being confounded, you are simply being confronted by pressure. Realize this – that greater is the pressure of My glory on the inside flowing out than the pressure on the outside trying to confuse and disorient you.
When you feel exasperated, remember that My name is HELPER. Do you need help? I AM your help. Since I AM your help and your helper then you are never HELP-LESS, are you? You are never helpless because I AM with you. I AM your Helper. That is who I AM and what I do. When you feel uninformed or lacking knowledge, know that I AM the Teacher. I will teach you things not only of My kingdom but every day secrets and wisdoms that will put you over in life. I will cause the right answer at the right time to surface in your thoughts and solve every riddle you are struggling with. So, no more fear, says God, for that is not the spirit I give. Never fear not knowing, not understanding, not remembering or grasping what is necessary, for My power and My soundness of mind is reinforcing every aspect of your mind and mentality to equip you for the day and put you over in victory.
January 18, 2018. The Father says today, let the power of agreement bring you into breakthrough. If two of you agree on earth touching any one thing, it will be done. That is the blanket promise of My word. Let all conflict and strife cease. Refuse to allow the enemy to run a game on you to keep you in disagreement and disharmony with your brothers and sisters in Christ. My people contend with one another when they ought to be contending for the faith once delivered to the saints. I have not called you to shake your fist in your brother or sister’s face. Set aside the demand to be heard and acknowledged. Come into unity this day and experience the anointing that flows down from the beard, even Aaron’s beard when the body unifies against their common enemy.
I do have a “blessing forevermore” place for you to abide in, My beloved. It is the place where you value oneness and agreement with your brothers and sisters in Christ more than you value your opinion. Coming into agreement touching the real needs and challenges around you causes you to ascend in prayer and see change come. Set aside all pettiness and contending. You do not have to be “right” to be in “right relationship”. When you value your right to have an opinion above relationships broken unnecessarily, you make yourself part of the problem rather than part of the solution. I say to you this day, let all warfare cease and make a choice to go low and find that place of humility and contrition that always rests under the canopy of My favor and blessing. It is better to be quiet than to be heard in the house of contention.
January 17, 2018. The Father says today, let go of the past. There is no version of your life you can imagine that I want you to be burdened by the past, by guilt or by sorrow. Let it go. Others may work very diligently to remind you of your failings and flaws but that is not by My command, says God. Get up. Dust yourself off and move on. Remember the words of David in Psalm 51, when he had failed so miserably, that he prayed, “against you and against you only have I sinned…” In the final analysis, regardless of what man says, your greatest – in fact your ONLY debt is to Me, and that was paid for on the cross.
Let all torment cease, says the Father. Consign the past to My judgments, and accept the cleansing of Calvary. Receive the admonition so often repeated, “go and sin no more…” You haven’t done everything right in your life. Mistakes have been made. Consequences have at times been shameful and even horrific. Just know that the blood that was shed at the cross was sufficient to cover you and make you clean. You are clean, says God. You are clean through the word I have spoken to you. This is your portion when you throw yourself on My mercy and render up your life as an offering of service before My throne.
January 16, 2018. The Father Says Today, I will be known in your life as the One who saves the best for last. Yes, for so will your latter years will be greater than your former. And your latter days will be more blessed than your beginning. And you shall cry out for the latter rain of My Spirit and I shall raise you up and you shall live in My sight and you will know Me and as the morning light I will come to you as the rain, as the latter rain and the former rain upon the earth. And I have saved the best for last. So, cry out – cry out for the latter rain.
It is the third day, says the Father, even the third day of Hosea and the third day of the wedding in Cana, and I turn the water into wine and it is the best in the house far surpassing all other vintages coming previously. For the vintage of the previous rain has been of a certain excellence and the coming vintage is of a surpassing excellence unlike any you have known. The master of the wedding feast in Cana brought approval to the bridegroom for the best wine that was saved for last, and My people will bring approval and congratulate their Bridegroom and there will be much celebration and rejoicing for the latter rain has come upon the earth, the great outpouring of My Spirit upon all flesh, bringing revival in the land. The vats of the new wine of this excellent vintage will flow and fill the vessels and new wine-skins to overflowing says the LORD.
January 15, 2018. The Father says today, come up higher. Two thousand years ago I descended into the bowels of the earth, deeper into chaos and despair than you will ever go. In that moment, I pre-emptively dealt with every darkness you will ever face. There is no need for Me to repeat that work. It is done. It is finished. Now I AM calling you up and out of the mire and despair of your circumstance into the place of being seated with Me. There is nothing more to be done other than that which Calvary accomplished in your behalf. Waiting upon heaven’s hand is not necessary for the finished work is at your disposal.
Shake yourself then from the lethargy of despair and the feeling of hopelessness. Things are not hopeless and the outlook is not bleak. That is the lie of the enemy. Resist him and he will flee from you. Your path forward begins by making a choice whether you will languish in sorrow and despondency or will you believe the good report? There is no need to “make the best of things” for I have better and best and highest heart’s desire awaiting as your personal outcome when you refuse to be a victim and simply move forward, expecting My word to be true in your life and My promise to hold up for you as it has for countless thousands for time immemorial.
January 14, 2018. The Father says today, look for the gift that I give you every day. I so loved that I gave. My base nature is that of a giver and you’ll never come before Me that you will not leave with arms laden down with My goodness. As you walk out faithful service in My Kingdom, I release to you the bounty of heaven to meet every need of your life. You need to understand that I am not fact checking your moral track record before I release answered prayer. I rain upon the just and the unjust. I sustain and uphold you even when your life is less than sinless perfection. I never look for a reason to withhold from you. My resources are there waiting, to be activated in your life as you turn a faithful heart toward My Spirit and My word. Faith is the activator that causes supply to abound toward you in every area of need.
Keep looking and expecting the fullness of supply to meet your every need. Maintain transparency of heart and refuse to ignore those things in your character and thinking that contradict who I AM. Know that My goodness is a provocation to change. I lead men to repentance by My goodness. If I freely gave My only son 2000 years ago on the cross, why would I withhold any other or any lesser blessing from you. You didn’t earn what I did for you on the cross and neither do you earn any other thing I do in your behalf day by day. Aligning your character and thinking with My heart is your response to My faithfulness and not the earning of some benefits that are not yours in the first place as an extension of My unconditional love. Receive My love and receive My gifting today and allow it to work all necessary change in your heart and life.
January 13, 2018. The Father says today, be steadfast in your faith. Be inveterate in your faith and not in your flesh. The flesh man wants to maintain his grasp upon your mind and your emotions in order to keep you from My best. Refuse to give in to the dictates of the natural man. Know that opinions carry a lethality in them that will rob you of your destiny. I have not called you to have an opinion, I have called you to abide in the vine. When you abide in the vine that I AM, you will bear much fruit. Are you bearing much fruit? Then allow the pruning of opinion to take place in your thinking until only My mind is finding leaf and blossom and substance on the branches of your inner man that are anchored in Me.
When opinions become so heavy that they sink down into your spirit, they become strongholds and offenses. Combat the pernicious influence of self-engendered opinion by developing a love for My word. Alleged truth that draws away from My character and LORDs over My Spirit within you is no truth at all. Great peace have they who love My word – they shall in NOTHING be offended. Are you offended? Come deeper. You are living too close to the surface where the waves of ungodliness foam out their shame every day of the world. Respond to the “deep calls unto deep” of My Spirit, and come down into the depths where the pure currents of My Spirit will wash and cleanse you for the day ahead and the destiny that awaits all those who steadfastly abide in Me.
January 12, 2018. The Father says today, don’t rationalize away your blessings. Those things the natural mind casts in stone are as nothing to Me. The things you think will never change, those things that have always been with you, hindering you, holding you back are as the small dust of the balance to be swept away in a moment by the work of My hand. The verities and facts that the natural mind never questions comprise the strongholds that hamper your forward progress in My Kingdom. It is time to tear those strongholds down, for they are enmity against My plan for your life. Learn to question what the natural mind, the carnal mind never holds up to scrutiny, for it is there I AM working to transform and bring change beyond your expectations.
January 11, 2018. The Father says today, what ELSE could possibly go right? That is the template I AM working from in your life! I AM all about HEAVEN come to EARTH in your situation, says the LORDd. I have no other plan but to bless and increase and promote you. Stop listening to those claiming to represent Me that suggest otherwise. I know that there are things you want to be different, and you are looking to Me as the initiator of that necessary change, but know this: I AM the initiator in heaven, but YOU are the initiator on the earth. What am I saying? What I AM saying, says the Father, is GIVE ME SOME COOPERATION and I will GIVE YOU SOME CHANGE. The lie of the enemy is that you have done all, paid all, sacrificed all and there is no more for you to do. Reject all such thinking. My Kingdom will not come in your life from a posture of passive observing. Things are the way they are because of what you are doing. If you want something different you must DO something different!
January 10, 2018. The Father says today, your life is not without purpose. Through the apostle Paul, I admonished every believer from the first century down to this very day to walk worthy of the vocation wherewith you are called. There is a call upon your life beloved. There is a mantle for you to receive and cause to rest upon your shoulders. Your life is not a mistake. Your birth was not some random biological happenstance. I brought you into the earth for this hour and this time. The call upon your life is real and it awaits the occasion of your faith and obedience to activate the grace I have released that you might fulfill that call and be found faithful.
What you are intended for in terms of destiny is not something any man can establish for you. I say you are a king and a priest. It is My glory to conceal and your glory as a king under the King of kings to find out, search out, seek out that worthy portion that is yours in the earth to fulfill. I say again that your life is not a misadventure! I have placed within you My immeasurable potential backed by the full resources of heaven that you might and in fact will come to the complete and total manifestation of all that I have intended in you and through you this day. Arise and go! Stand up and move forward and all those things that you think are lacking will be provided as you move out!
January 9, 2018. The Father says today, hide My “yes” in your heart. All of My promises are yes and amen to you this day. There is no maybe, or perhaps. I AM a “yes” God. The death of the cross is My eternal and positive response to the cry of the faith filled heart. When the circumstances of life say “no” – cling to the “yes and amen” of My promise. Never allow questioning, complaining, bitterness or unbelief to rob you of your joy. Know that the eyes of heaven are upon you today. Refuse to be discouraged nor dismayed. Purpose to hope against hope and believe against all notions of unbelief that you will have what I have promised, for I say YES to you this day!
Stand up then, against the mountains of adversity in your life and say, “Be removed!” Refuse to dwell on the circumstance that would seem so overwhelming. My promises in your life set the precondition for victory. My love for you is the determining factor. When your heart is cast down, remember how many times in the past I have proven Myself faithful. I will be found faithful once again. I will deliver and guide and assist you through the current challenge. I AM God over the storm, says the Father. I will bring the enemy and all his minions under your feet. I will put your foot in the neck of the one who only comes to kill, steal and destroy. You will know My triumph, says the Father. It was secured 2,000 years ago at Calvary.
January 8, 2018. The Father says today, say no to negativity. Negativity depletes you and will cause you to stumble unnecessarily. Negativity will rob you of the benefit and blessing that is right now ready to come forth in your life. Refuse to embrace the negative! There is no pessimism in the Kingdom. There is no characteristic of sarcasm in the character of Christ. Let it not once be named among you. Realize that being negative, or exposing yourself to negative influences or people, will contaminate your spirit. Out of the heart are the issues of life. If you entertain the negative, it will set the preamble for what happens next in your life.
Realize then, that you cannot conduct yourself in an unguarded way around negative people. There are tender friendships and relationships that must change Beloved, if you are to extract the poison of negativity from your inner man. Learn not to answer them again, nor enter into their banter or their conversation. You are not better than them, but you can make a better choice. Choose life, that you might live. Choose the simplicity of spirit like that of a little child. Reject all one-upmanship or dark humor. In so doing, you recover yourself from the snare that many of My sons and daughters have fallen into, never to rise out of again.
January 7, 2018. The Father says today, money moves by the Spirit. As your confidence in who I AM increases, so you are banking the currency of the Kingdom to your account in the glory. I said, I would meet all your needs according to the riches that are in the glory. Where is that glory? It is on the inside of you. In the glory, inside you – in embryo is the answer to every one of your needs and every one of the needs of those around you. Your answers are not coming down from some ethereal dimension beyond your reach. I AM on the inside of you and in Me is the potentiality of every single thing that you could ever ask Me for.
There are those who speak in My name that eulogize a poverty for you that they themselves would never volunteer for. They are the congregation of the uniformed. There is no poverty in heaven, so why would I choose poverty to perfect My character in you? My default template for your life is “as in heaven – so on earth…” Can you wrap your mind around just how provisioned heaven is? No shortage, no deficit, no inflation. No want and no need that isn’t answered by the provisioning of My hand. Take what I have given and allow it to flow out in answer to the needs of those around you. Money is like blood. It must flow or atrophy, death and decay results. As you give out of your limited supply, My limitless bounty will find you and flow through you creating surplus in the life of others and in your own life as well. This is banking in the glory.
January 6, 2018. The Father says today, there is no power stronger than love. Stronger than death, deeper than the grave. This is the love wherewith I love you. It was love that sent My son into the depths of the earth to draw you out of many waters. It was love that looked past the layers of sin and defilement and saw who you could be and would be as a New Creation formed by My hand. Love is what surrounds you and embraces you every day from My heart and beckons you to come – deeper still.
Love yourself as I have loved you, says the Father. You cannot love others or extend to others forgiveness and clemency until you first let yourself off the hook. Perfectionism, unrealistic standards are all borne of self-hatred. Learn to see yourself as I see you, in your dependence on Me as a beneficiary of My mercy and lovingkindness. Love those around you. Love those in the workplace, and in your family. Love those you are in harmony with and particularly those who oppose and resist you. Love is who I AM beloved. Let love be who you are this day.
January 5, 2018. The Father says today, lavish your love on those around you. Love those around you today with extravagant love. In your dealings with others today, I challenge you to overstate your loving heart. Let love be the luxury you rain down upon all you meet this day. Just as I gave you My very best in the gift of My son on Calvary, go out and shower love upon the people in your life. It doesn’t matter whether they deserve it or have earned it, because I freely gave to you when you were undeserving. Freely, or undeservedly you have received of My bounty, therefore freely give without any thought of whether it will be appreciated or recompensed in any way by those you extend kindness to.
You are called to be a saint. My saints are My kind ones. Being saintly is not about adopting a religious air, or appearing to be aloof or other-worldly. Just adopt kindness and generosity as your default response to others that you lead with in every social transaction. Whether you are engaging in matters of great importance, or just casually interacting with strangers in the public square, lead with kindness, deference, civility and grace. Love is who I AM and as such I would that love be that which you personify and extend to others every moment of every day regardless of what is going on in your life otherwise. In so doing, you demonstrate you are My beloved child and I will reward you as such, says God.
January 4, 2018. The Father says today, Beloved, I desire that you prosper in all things and be in health, even as your soul prospers. There is a prosperity of the mind, a prosperity of the emotions and a prosperity of the will. What does a prosperous soul look like beloved? A prosperous mind is being of like mind with Me and in one accord with My thoughts. Having the mind of Christ is a mind choosing to have no opinion, to have a “judge not lest you be judged” mind. A prosperous will is doing only what you see the Father do, it is releasing your own will and demands on the situation and giving place to the will of the Father in all things. Prosperity in your emotions is yielding all trust unto the Father, and placing security in the outcome that heaven designs. Relinquishing the outcome of every situation into My hands, knowing the process of obedient faith secures eternal reward and abundant success and favor in this life.
Prosperity of soul is a gateway for “life and life more abundant”. It is My place to cause My voice to be heard and it is your place to cooperate with what you hear. Let My process bring you to a glorious outcome, without fear or doubt. Let not your soul be troubled, neither let it be afraid, even as you walk through the pressure zones of life. For I will surely bring you through the pressure and you will break out into the kingdom, says the Father.
January 3, 2018. The Father says today, receive the Spirit of Knowledge. My people perish for lack of knowledge. Be willing to be a learner. Walking in My Kingdom does not require you to check your intellect at the door. It is through experiential knowledge of who I disclose Myself to be in the word that you will taste and see of My power in your life. Be teachable. Always be a learner, willing to acquire deeper, ever deeper understanding of who I AM and what I AM doing in your life. Through knowledge gained from My word, all things that pertain to life and godliness will be imparted and come online in your life.
This is what the mind of Christ is all about. Through My truth and through My word, you arm yourself with the weapons of spiritual warfare that put you over in life. Where there is a disdain for knowledge, and an unwillingness to learn of Me, atrophy, defeat, failure and death set in and take supremacy. To refuse to learn, to decline from sitting daily at My feet you forsake your own mercy. Take My yoke upon you, I said so long ago – and learn of Me. In so doing you gain entrance to deeper understanding, greater intimacy and the full inventory of heaven at your disposal to put you over in every circumstance. I say again – receive the Spirit of Knowledge.
January 2, 2018. The Father says today, relinquish the need to make unnecessary judgments. Say within yourself “I have no opinion about that…” This is the only way to muzzle the carnal mind and make room for the mind of the Spirit I have imparted to you. Handing down opinions on every circumstance and situation that confronts you is a waste of time and a waste of energy. Choose to have no opinion. Relinquish the need to qualify, categorize, fix labels, interpretations, or to evaluate in any way the people, things and situations around you. The white noise of opinion in the back of your mind quenches My Spirit and drowns out My still small voice. Quiet yourself. Hear what I AM saying. Refuse to allow the anarchy of your soul to mute the peace that I impart to your spirit.
When you sit in judgment, the gavel not only comes down against your adversary but also delivers you over to the tormentor. The bars and gates of opinion inhibit you from receiving all that is abundantly available to you now. There is no mystical period of time that must transpire before you enter in – there is only the need to clean house and jettison the impurity of those thoughts in your mind that conflict with who I AM and what I AM doing. Be willing to extend to others the grace you wish to receive. The blessing and benefit you would withhold from those you disapprove of will never come to you until you relinquish the addictive habit of unfruitful judgments and opinions.
January 1, 2018 The Father says today, this is your season of enrichment. I AM fortifying you and strengthening you for the campaign of total victory unfolding before you even now. Step forward with feet shod with My good news. The outcome is assured. Your part is to walk out what I have already provided for, and give evidence of My goodness in the land of the living. There are triumphs coming to you right now for the express purpose of having crowns to cast at My feet. Worship and warfare involve conquest and the spoiling of the enemy. You will lay hold of the spoil of the enemy and bring captives forth to new liberty and victory by your word and by your testimony.
Let the shout of triumph be in your mouth this day, says the Father. All things are new – the old has passed away, no more to impede or hinder you in any manner. Yesterday, last week, last month, last year is rolled up as a scroll and delivered into the archives of heaven. Your focus is to be on your now, and what I AM bringing about of My graciousness and My favor in your life and in your situation. Reach out by your obedience and lay hold of all that I have accorded you. The bounty of heaven is at your disposal. The finished work of Calvary is working in your behalf. My “yes” and “amen” are at your side – willing you to move forward in faith knowing as you yield fully to My purpose, My plan, and My Spirit, that everything you say and do will be as effective as if I said it or did it.
