He Keeps You In Position.

He Keeps You In Position

His love is like the rain in the forest. The leaves of the trees drip of the outpouring, and there you stand being drenched in the the anointing; renewed, restored, refreshed, rejoined to the purpose for which you have been called.
Nothing has ever been too hard, too difficult, too exacting, too overwhelming, for the Spirit of the Lord to keep His promises to you. Because He is the assurance, the guarantee, the seal that keeps you. This is not only for the day of your redemption, but also keeps your service to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords in position to receive the Presence of the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
It is not difficult for Him to know you. It is not difficult for Him to see your desire to walk with Him dressed in white.

Prophetic Vindication

I prophesy that there are chains breaking with a resounding, clanging “SNAP!” New freedoms are pouring forth for you who have been contained, restrained, and pained by the relentless lies that you thought were true, and held you captive from the path of your ministry and prophetic destiny. I decree that you are now LOOSED from the misguided words spoken into your life. And I bind all the works of the adversary against your life in the powerful Name of Jesus. No weapon formed against you will prosper. The words spoken against you, you shall condemn. That is your heritage in the Lord and your righteousness and vindication comes from Him.
Now be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His Might.

Can You See What He Is Doing?

Can You See What He Is Doing?

Are God’s ways higher than your ways? Are His thoughts higher than your thoughts? That seems quite obvious, especially when what you are doing has nothing to do with His ways.
Jesus did what He saw the Father doing. Can you see anything that the Father is doing? If you can , then the Holy Spirit has been working to show you what He has been taking from what Jesus can see the Father doing.
For Jesus said ” The Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My Name, He will guide you into all truth, for He will glorify Me. Everything that the Father has is mine, and He will take from what is Mine and show it to you..”
Is this difficult to understand? To the natural mind it would be hard to fathom how this could be. But the Word of The Lord states that “No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man what God has in store for those who love Him. But God reveals those things to those who love Him by His Spirit, yes even the deep things of God”.
Therefore the heart of man has to change, doesn’t it? There has to be a transformation taking place in the heart of man to be able to comprehend what is the length, the width, the depth and the height and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge. The love that surpasses knowledge is quite a deep concept, a mystery, that can only be revealed, uncovered, made known by revelation.
Then the transformation that allows us to know the love of Christ has to take place through humbling ourselves in the Presence of the Lord. “I beseech you brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which will be your worship. And be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you can prove what is the good, and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Now, “why should you labor for that which doesn’t satisfy? Why should you spend money on that which is not bread?. Come, delight yourself in Me, says the Lord, and I will show you what is good.”
“It is your Father’s good pleasure to give to you the Kingdom.”
Now can you see what the Father is doing? “Seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.

Barriers Are Breaking Down

Barriers Are Breaking Down

Though the enemy come in, like a flood the Spirit of the Lord is raising up a standard against him. Now stand and see the salvation of the Lord.
For there is a river whose streams make glad the city of our God. There is a fountain that flows straight for the heart of our God. I will rejoice, I will rejoice and be glad.
Let the Word of the Lord, the Word That Is Sent, be combined with your faith, For faith is the assurance of things hoped for, it is the evidence of things not seen.
For without faith, ,the assurance of things hoped for, it is impossible to please God. For he who comes to God must believe that He is; and that He is the rewarder unto those who diligently seek Him.
He has shown you, oh man what is good. Now what does the Lord require of you; but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
Keep in mind therefore that the Lord has said; ;”Is not my word like fire? Is not My Word the mighty hammer that smashes the rocks?”
The barriers that were before you are breaking down by the Word That Is Sent. The rubble of the barriers are being cleared away so your foot will not stumble. For I have seen your ways, and I will heal you, says the Lord.

Choosing The Destiny That Leads To Life

Choosing The Destiny That Leads To Life

What is keeping you from fulfilling what the Lord has for you to do? Are you distracted from seeing the truth about yourself? Are your thoughts consumed by doubting who you really are in Christ? Scripture says “being confident of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. Are you compelled to “buy into” the opinions of nay-sayers concerning your own ability to walk in the Spirit?
No one on earth is called by God to follow a crowd of agenda setters. Not even in your church. Be led by the Spirit. There is no either/or choice here for those who have been called out of darkness into His marvelous light.. When you are led by the Spirit of the Lord, you are choosing the destiny that leads to life. He has provided, given to you, everything that pertains to life and Godliness.
Things may seem hard to do at times, but greater still is He that is within you than he that is in the world. The Word of God is still sharper than any double – edged sword, dividing joints and marrow, soul and spirit. It is the discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. There is nothing hidden from Him to Whom we must give an account. Now turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full into His wonderful face. And the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.

Could You Be Avoiding Your Own Future?

The Lord, Holy Spirit, wants you to know that His Voice really can be known by you. He also wants you to know that He really does know and really does hear your voice. For you to recognize someone’s voice means that you know the one you are talking to, and listening to. If you never listen, you will never know. If you avoid listening to the Lord’s Voice, you are avoiding what your own future can become.
