October 9, 2023. The Father says today, My child, My deep is calling to your deep this day. You have asked for a deeper relationship with Me, which is available as you press into your quiet times with Me. Say to your eyes be opened, and to your ears to hear what My voice is saying in the depths of your heart and your spirit, man. Your inner man is where I will be found and where I will be made known, says The Father. Make a choice to get that alone time with Me that is necessary. Silence waits for Me. My voice is found in you and identified in the silence between your own thoughts. Sometimes, you will need and desire solitude, like some people desire necessary food. It is in that place I will come to you, and you will sup with Me, and I will commune with you, and change will come. You are also coming into a place of intercession. Interceding in prayer for others and that hidden man of the heart, I have formed and fashioned you to be. Intercession for the person that I have called you to be to come into manifestation. As you pray into who I say you are, I will cause that hidden man inside of you to stand up and be made manifest. Then, I will take you on from there to greater maturity and a distinct transition to a new maturity in My kingdom.
So, this day, take the time and make a concerted effort to return to the quiet place. Open your heart and choose to listen deeply, and it will be My voice and My Spirit that you will encounter there as you see My wind of change beginning to blow and bringing you to a whole new arena of experience in My kingdom. Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. This could be your bedroom, a park, or even a coffee shop. Set aside some time each day to spend with Me, soaking up My presence. Even if it’s just 15 minutes, make My presence your priority. Open your heart and mind to the promptings of My Spirit in the moment. Read specific verses I lay on your heart slowly and thoughtfully, and pay attention to any verses that stand out to you. Start to journal about what you’re reading and how it applies to your life. Pray repeatedly if necessary (like Daniel) and ask Me to help you understand what you’ve read and how to apply it. Listen for My voice speaking in the silence between your thoughts. Pay attention to things around you that are unusual or out of place. Anything that makes you do a double take, pray to interpret. I will reveal My heart to you and show you how to grow in your relationship with Me. I will also give you guidance and wisdom for your life.
Pray the following prayer:
“Father, I come to You today to pray for my hidden man. I pray that You would reveal him to me more and more. I pray that You will help me to understand who I am in You and what You have called me to do.
“I pray that You would help me to grow in maturity and to become the person You created me to be. I pray that You will lead me into a new arena of experience in Your kingdom.
“Thank You, Father, for Your love and Your faithfulness. I trust You to guide me and help me grow in my relationship with You. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
October 7, 2023. The Father says today, I AM not upset with you, and I AM not punishing you. Sometimes, in the midst of delays and challenges, it can be easy to believe that I have abandoned us or that I am not interested in our prayers. But I want to remind you that I AM always with you, never leaving or forsaking you. You’ve wondered how long things will continue and held Me responsible, but I have no plan to keep you in a difficult place or a wilderness experience any longer than necessary. Are you ready to step out and put your trust in Me? If you do, I will take control and guide your life. It’s important to remember that you are defined by what and who I say you are, not by your past or what others may say about you. You are not defined by your mistakes or the negative opinions of others. Listen to My voice and repent quickly when you are found in the wrong. As you step out in obedience and move forward, doing what I instruct, you will begin to see the things you have longed for become a reality. I have a plan for your life, a life worth living that I have specifically chosen for you. And it’s not just a partial package, but a complete and abundant one.
Be assured that I will not play games with you, dangling potential blessings in front of you only to withhold them. Instead, I set a table of blessings before you, a feast just waiting for you to partake in. However, there are three things you must do daily: seek to understand what these things are, observe and do what I AM doing, and let go of any preconceived opinions about the consequences. Obedience and faithfulness will lead to fulfilling My promises in your life. Above all, know that He loves you deeply, and I desire to bless you. My love for you is unconditional, regardless of your mistakes. I long to forgive you and offer you a fresh start. My Plan is good and filled with purpose, and I will always be by your side, even during the toughest times. Place your trust in Me, take the risk you’ve been avoiding, and step out in faith. Embrace My plan for your life, knowing that He wants to bless you abundantly, even though you don’t have all the details. Let go of any guilt or fear; instead, hold on to My love and faithfulness. I AM waiting for you to take that leap of faith and experience My Goodness in a profound way.
October 5, 2023. The Father says today, refuse to be distracted or diverted from the assignment I have called you to. The enemy knows he is defeated, and he will use every trick in his book to try to derail you. But do not be afraid. I AM with you always, and I will help you to overcome every obstacle. The enemy will try to confuse you with lies and delusions. He will try to distract you with shiny objects and empty promises. He will try to get you focused on things that do not matter. But do not listen to him. Keep your eyes on Me, and keep your focus on the task at hand. I have called you to be a truth-teller and to be bold in your obedience. Do not be afraid to speak out against injustice and wrongdoing. Do not be afraid to stand up for what is right, even when it is unpopular. There is honor at the end of the journey. You will come to an expected end result. What happens to you next is not determined by men or the opinions of men. It is determined by Me.
So, keep moving forward. Refuse to look back. Keep your eyes on Me, and trust that I am leading you in the right direction. I will not fail you. The enemy wants to cause concern in your life, to cause you to look away from your purpose. But don’t let him. Keep your focus on who I AM and what I have called you to do. Keep ever before you that the enemy’s strategies are lies, delusions, smoke, and mirror deceptions. But remember, he is defeated. His lies have no power over you. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. You are called to be a truth teller without intimidation or hesitation. Be bold to speak out and obey the Spirit’s leading, even when it’s difficult, knowing and trusting that there is honor at the end of the journey. So don’t give up. Keep moving forward, even when things are tough. Remember, you are not alone. I AM with you every step of the way.
October 4, 2023. The Father says today, never step out of love. Make it your determination to live the love life in every situation, circumstance, and interaction. Why? Because you won’t get disappointed, hurt or mistreated? Those things happen because you live among a fallen race in a fallen environment where sin mars everything outside of Christ. I see that and the scars and wounds, even the open wounds you carry. Remember that love NEVER fails. Why would you step out of love, ever step out of love, when a step out of love is a step into sure and certain failure? Just keep loving. Love is not just what I do; it is who I AM. When man fell, love was the only response I was capable of. When you fail and disappoint My holiness, love is the only response I AM capable of. Others point out severity and consequences, but isn’t it interesting that these things only seem fitting for OTHERS and not for those who make these judgments? For some, something is wrong with their world unless they see others suffering what they consider consequences for sin or some other misstep. Avoid these. Don’t listen to their words or their counsel or be dismayed by their slanders. I AM with you. My forgiveness is cleansing and washing you. I AM taking you from loneliness and isolation to the fulfillment of My every promise. Make it your determination to lay hold on My faithfulness and with tenacious faith never to let go until you come into your blessing place.
It is true in this world that brokenheartedness is one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. The end of a relationship, the loss of a loved one, or another deep disappointment it can feel like your whole world is ending. That may be, and it might even happen, but I AM the God of resurrection and the God of the second chance. I will take the ashes of disappointment and mourning and bring forth joy, beauty, and radical shift into your happy place by My determinate hand! Know that you are not alone. I see your pain, and I care deeply about you. I know exactly what you are going through, and He wants to help you heal. So rather than despair and torment of spirit, make a choice to Give yourself time to grieve. It is important to allow yourself to feel your emotions, even the negative ones. Don’t try to bottle them up or pretend that you are not hurting. Talk to those I send into your life for consolation. You trust the comforter and counselor at hand in your situation that I sent you. Tell them what you are going through. Talking about your pain can help you process it and move on. Lean on Me for strength and support. I AM your loving Father, and I want to help you heal. Spend time in prayer and reading the Bible. Allow I Word to comfort and encourage you. Trust that I have a good plan for your life. Even though you may not be able to see it right now, I AM working everything together for your good. I know what is best for you, and I will lead you through this difficult time.
October 3, 2023. The Father says today, I AM calling you to step out in the healing gifts. I have placed a healing anointing upon you, and I release to you now an unction to lay hands on the sick and see them recover. There are those around you who are broken, both in body and in spirit. They need your healing touch. Put your hands upon them and speak the words of life and healing. As you lay hands on the sick, even those who are terminally ill or have chronic problems, speak the manifest words of deliverance over them. Change will come in their lives. There will even be those who, according to their faith, will come to full recovery, leaping and walking and praising Me for their healing and miracle. Get a vial of oil and keep it with you at all times. You will be amazed at the places, times, and opportunities you will have to minister to those who are sick, hurting, and needing a touch from My hand. You will reach in and take out the oil and touch somebody, and it will be My hand and voice they will experience speaking through you to bring deliverance and healing, not only to physical bodies but to those who are broken in mind and spirit.
You will speak The Word, and people will be restored to wholeness and be restored to hope, for I AM the God who substantiates your hope. You might say to yourself, “I need a touch in my own life — how can I minister to others?” I say to you, beloved, rise up, get outside yourself and your needs, and see what happens. See what I will do not only for others but what I will do for you. I have not called you to preach your own limited experience but to preach My Word. As you preach My Word, it will become flesh on your bones and life in your body. As you testify of My goodness, even so My goodness will be brought forth and become manifest reality. Go out and do for others what you have been waiting for someone to come around and do for you. Refuse to languish in self-pity and isolation. Get up and get out – go about your day waiting for the door I open, the conversation that leads to testimony, and the testimony that leads to prayer. Let your mouth pray openly and boldly, and see what I will do. I choose you, says The Father, and not another. You are the one I AM working with both to will and to do. My good pleasure.
October 2, 2023. The Father says today, I AM your ever-present help in the difficulties you are facing right now. In sickness, I AM Jehovah-Rophe, your Healer. In financial problems, I AM your Jehovah-Jireh. In marital or family problems, I AM your peace, your Jehovah-Shalom. That is what I do; in fact, that is who I AM, and I have no other agenda in your life beyond making good in your situation on every provision of The Cross and that right quickly. Whatever it is, I want you to know that I am with you, and I AM faithful. I know what storms in life are like, for I was tempted in all points just as you are. I know that it is hard to believe sometimes when you are in the midst of a storm. But I want you to trust that I AM working all things together for your good and for My Glory. Even in your darkest moments, I AM using your trial to mold in you a testimony of highest heart’s desire and greatest dream fulfilled as I shape you into the image of My Son, Jesus Christ. I AM faithful to provide for you. I AM faithful to comfort you. I AM faithful to give you strength. And I AM faithful to deliver you.
Remember that love is WHO I AM, not just what I do. As I have loved you and demonstrated My Love in times past even so I AM moving and manifesting the miracle that affirms that love, even the love by which I went to The Cross to pay the purchase price to translate you out of the domain of darkness and into the Light and Life of My Kingdom. I Love you more than you can imagine. And I will never leave you nor forsake you. So trust in Me, and hold on tight to My Promises. I will get you through this. Pray constantly. In honesty, tell Me about your fears, your doubts, and your hopes. Be real with Me for I want reality from you. As it has been said I am more interested in relationship than in respect. I know what you are going through, and I want to hear from you. Read My Word. Speak My Word. When you speak My Word you bring Me on the scene as surely as if I physically stood before you. My Word will save, heal, and deliver. Surround yourself with supportive people. Follow My leadership to a community of believers who will pray for you, encourage you, and help you through your trial. Serve others. Even when you are going through a lot yourself, someone is always going through more. Find a way to serve others, and it will help you to take your focus off of your own problems. Remember, My child, I AM faithful. And I will get you through this.
October 1, 2023. The Father says today, “Don’t let the storms of life distract you from My purpose. Don’t listen to the voices of doubt and fear. Keep your eyes on Me, and I will guide you through the darkness and confusion. I AM giving you a seer’s anointing to see through the murk and mire of the situation and come out on the other side victorious. You will make choices that may not make sense to others, but you will be led by the Spirit, who will clear the fog of uncertainty and bring you forward to new territory. So get a pen and paper and write down the vision. Write down what you see and what I show you. Write down the things I have spoken to you in the past, what I AM speaking to you now, and the instructions you will receive in the morning. Then, walk it out, and you will see that it comes to pass. I will speak to you in symbols and metaphors, and even in plain language at times so that you will know what to do tomorrow and what is coming before the day dawns. I will lead you on the shortest path to My blessing as you obey.
As you move forward, you will break forth into the Kingdom of My Righteousness, Joy, and Peace. This is your manifest portion, beloved. T his is what it means to seek the kingdom first. This is the new beginning and the new direction that you have asked Me for. It is here, even now, waiting for you to step into it.” One of the most important things you can do is write down the vision I give you. This will help you to stay focused on My plan for your life, even when the storms of life come. What do you see for your future? What have I spoken to you about in the past, present, and future? Are you following the instructions that I give you for each day? Once you have written down the vision, keep it in a place where you will see it often. This will help you to stay on track and to remember what I am calling you to do. Once you have written down the vision, it is important to walk it out. This means taking action on the things that God has shown you and spoken to you about. As you walk out the vision, it is important to trust that I AM faithful. I will unfailingly bring My promises to pass in your life.
