“I am able to stand in the Presence of My Holy Father because of Christ’s work on the cross. I need not fear death for I have been given eternal life through Jesus. He paid my penalty so I could live. No matter what this world brings, the best is yet to come, and My Holy Father’s lap is wide open to me.”
Walk in the righteousness of Christ today.
“This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it! All things are possible through, in and because of Him who sits on the throne. I will continuously praise His name forever!”
Get your praise on.
“I am blessed to be a blessing. The sacrifices of self made today unlock Kingdom doors of opportunity that impact the future. Serving people is loving people.”
Be a blessing today.
I heard the Lord speak to me about fog. Many of you feel shrouded by fog, your path unclear, your future indeterminate. Many are fearful to move through the fog because of the possibility of snares and traps; this fear has paralyzed God’s people and kept them from moving into their destiny, from moving FORWARD!
Today the Lord says, ” I AM with you in the fog. Do NOT fear, have good courage for I AM with You! Have you not seen? Have you not heard? I never, ever, ever go back on My Word! Take the first step forward and know that I AM walking with You. In fact, I have gone before You and carved out the best path for you to take! This season of fog is not forever, it is a season designed for My purpose – Trust ME, lean on ME, give your cares and worries to ME. For when You partner with me in the fog, you will see it lift, just as I designed it in the natural. As you move through the fog carried by My Spirit, you will begin to see clearly and will walk more boldly. Take the first step, for I AM with you!”
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path (Psalm 119:105 NKJV).
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6).
Beloved, God has not designed you to be paralyzed and stagnant, waiting for your trials and circumstances to change. He has designed you to walk through them, triumphantly, victoriously and boldly. Each step you take, though you cannot see where your foot falls yet, will bring you into clarity and purpose! Cast your cares upon Him, He really does care for you!!
“I walk in love for I am loved by God. I did nothing to earn this love and I don’t have to do anything to keep it. This love was mind to have and hold from the beginning of time because He knew that one day He would bring me into this world. His love is an everlasting love and because He loved me first, I will always love Him.”
Embrace His love today!
“I am highly favored and the fragrance of heavenly blessings permeates the air wherever I am. Christ travels with me for I carry His Presence; because of this, I leave blessing everywhere.”
Be a carrier of blessing!
Led to share this:
Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”
I heard the Lord say, “Lower your (human) expectations and prepare to rise!” Many of us face discouragement and defeat because we have set burdensome expectations upon ourselves. Many have listened to the Lord and have obeyed, but outside of His time. Many have taken prophetic words and either let them stagnate or moved through them before the time of preparation. Still others have allowed the voice of the enemy to speak over the voice of the Shepherd.
God wants you to know He is redeeming your time. All is not in vain and He is preparing to lift your human expectations and place His mantle of purpose upon you. He is telling you discouragement and defeat are not your portion, and He has given you the authority to silence the enemy.
Allow God to align your goals and expectations with His. His word and His love never fail, His grace is sufficient and His promises are true. Do not lean on what your physical and emotional senses tell you, the enemy will always magnify them, but trust what God has spoken to you. Lean on that word, His Word; rest in His arms and allow the wind of His Spirit to carry you, for He is ready to take you onward, upward and forward!
“I will seek the Presence of God, for His Presence satisfies better than position. Position follows the Presence and when kept in the proper order ensures Kingdom advancement. ”
Be a Presence seeker today!
Today’s word is “Righteous Right Hand”
The Lord showed me a picture of a hand placed on the small of someone’s back, the placement being one of support and comfort. It reminded me of a husband helping his wife over uneven terrain, or when a therapist is supporting someone who is learning to walk again.
I heard the Lord say “‘Fear not, for I AM with you; Be not dismayed, for I AM your God. I WILL strengthen you, Yes, I WILL help you, I WILL uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Though you may feel you are slipping and on the verge of falling I AM holding you up. I AM the support at your back and the sureness at your feet. I WILL not allow you to fall, do NOT let your view of your circumstances and surroundings dictate your position. Do NOT allow your vision to be turned backwards and your focus redirected. Keep your eyes on the prize I have set before you, do not weary in doing good, and TRUST ME to protect, shield and guide you.”
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ (Isaiah 41:10 NKJV).
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with His hand (Psalm 23-24).
I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14).
Feel led to share this:
You feel lonely, as though there is no one to share your life, your laughter, your purpose with. You feel as though everyone has left you; though you are in rooms filled with people, you seem to be the only one there. You have been trampled on, kicked around, used and abused. You have been giving and forgiving, but treated as a filthy doormat. You pray and ask ‘how much longer?’ and you weep, weep, weep. Your heart has become distraught and you desire to no longer feel the way you do.
Beloved, loneliness is NOT the portion God has for you. He wants you to know He SEES YOU, He HEARS YOU, and He LOVES YOU. YOU are NOT alone! You are NOT what people have treated you as and He is preparing to take you to a higher level. He wants you to know the loneliness you feel is actually a longing for more, the place you are in is no longer where He wants you to be; He has cleared a path for your forward motion. Do not be discouraged, do not be dismayed! You may have felt that He has left you, but He has not -He had been working things out for your re-positioning! Behold, new things for you He declares! Your season of loneliness will give way to divine relationships and blessings designed to release joy, joy, joy in your prayers! He is calling you to take that step – to step out of the season and place you are currently in and step into a new season and a new place! Your mourning has been changed to dancing!
For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5b NKJV).
Behold, the former things have come to pass, And new things I declare; Before they spring forth I tell you of them.” (Isaiah 42:9)
To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1).
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” (Isaiah 61:1-3)
