A Special Invitation

Daily Encouragement – 

I am The primary Initiator!!! I seek you out first!!! At the beginning, I sought you out, found you, and invited you to follow Me. This invitation is a command to put aside your will and your ways. This must be done so that you can seek Me out anew every day! 

Where am I today? What am I saying and doing? Seek Me out and join Me in My work! I know it is not always easy. I know the cares, weights, and worries of this world. 

Sometimes you may get off track and lose your way, your desire through discouragement and disappointment. During these times, I will seek you out again and give you new purpose and new life, with the same invitation to follow Me. 

Come close to Me! Seek Me anew every day! Walk with Me today in a fresh way and receive all I have to give you. Follow Me My child!!! I love you!!!

John 21:3 “Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We are going with you also.” They went out and immediately got into the boat, and that night they caught nothing.”

V. 5 Then Jesus said to them, “Children, have you any food?” They answered Him, “No.”

V. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and eat breakfast.” Yet none of the disciples dared ask Him, “Who are You?”—knowing that it was the Lord. 

V. 22 Jesus said to him, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me.”

Keep My Word!!!

Daily Encouragement – 

My child, I love you, and I desire your love in return. I have spoken life and Spirit to you. For you to truly love Me in return, you must keep My commands and words. 

Will you change your way of life to conform to My words? Will you stay in constant accord with all I have said and will say? Will you preserve, maintain, watch over, and defend the truth and life I have spoken to you? 

As you keep My word, you will be transformed even more into a resting, dwelling place for Me and My presence. I desire, more than you can know now, to come and make My habitation fully in you. 

Know and keep My word that I may come and make My home, My Kingdom, with you, in you, and all around you!!! I love you My child!!!

John 14:15-16, 23 “If you [really] love Me, you will keep and obey My commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), to be with you forever— 

23 If anyone [really] loves Me, he will keep My word (teaching); and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our dwelling place with him.

Praise of Men or Command of God?

Daily Encouragement – 

I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life!!! Every part of Me is life to your body, heart, mind, and soul. My words are life.

Even My commands are life. Man’s commands are burdensome and impossible to keep because they change with each situation and are dependent on man’s emotions. Man commands and plans are always for selfish benefit. 

Yet, all too often, you desire to please men over Me. Why do you desire the approval and praise of men over Me? Man’s approval is unstable and ever changing with his moods and emotions. Why would you choose the praise of men over a Holy God whose very commands bring everlasting life to every part of you? 

Come to Me!!! Desire My approval! Line yourself up with My commands, and you will receive the everlasting benefits of life from Me!!! I love you My child!!!

John 12:42-43 “Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; 43 for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.”

John 12:49-50 “For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. 50 And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak.

Be Filled, Take It Out

Daily Encouragement – 

I want you to be strong and filled with My Spirit every single day. I have commanded you to be filled with The Spirit and My life-giving water. This is important and the first step in walking into The Kingdom. However, it is not the only step.

My power and glory is displayed in carrying what you have been given out into the world. As you take what you have been given out, even though it may seem plain, I am able to display My glory for all to see. I want to turn the plain, mundane, and boring in your life into displays and revelations of My power and glory. 

You must be filled fully and take it out to those who need it and who I call you to. Come close to Me, know Me, and make Me known to all people!!! I love you My Child! 

John 2:7-9, 11 Jesus said to them, “Fill the waterpots with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, “Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast.” And they took it. When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from… This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory;

Redeemed to be One

Daily Encouragement –

I take the broken and the irreparable-the unredeemable-and turn it all around. For see the wind and the waves, how they move. Was it not I who spoke them into existence and commanded them to stretch out from one point but to go not further in the other direction? 

Yes, I spoke all of creation into existence and breathed life into the dead things. Am I not strong enough or true enough to My character to do it again today? Right here, right now? 

For look and see—it is for My glory that I respond to the cries of My faithful ones and act on their behalf. What the enemy intended for death and destruction, behold, I am turning it all around that all may see My heart and deep love for My creation. 

Oh, how I long for fellowship with My children! Unending and eternal oneness as My Son and I are O N E. 

Luke‬ ‭8:25‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Then He asked them, “Where is your faith?” The disciples were terrified and amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “When He gives a command, even the wind and waves obey Him!””

John‬ ‭17:22-24‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“I have given them the glory You gave Me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and You are in Me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that You sent Me and that You love them as much as You love Me. Father, I want these whom You have given Me to be with Me where I am. Then they can see all the glory You gave Me because You loved Me even before the world began!”

Uncontainable Joy

Daily Encouragement – 

Nothing can separate Me from walking by your side. Even if you push Me away I will be watching and waiting in anticipation for you to open your arms and return to me. I am always ready to receive you back completely with uncontainable joy!

 I am doing a new thing, but the old things must be in order. 
You must be continually:
1. Receptive to Me with a pure heart
2. Repentant of everything that keeps you from fully stepping into and living in my presence
3. Obedient to every command you are given no matter how great or small.

When these three things are in order, I am able to move in and through you to bring new life not just for you, but through you to all the hurting people in need of Me. 

I want My people to rise up and live as My sons and daughters and stop settling for getting by living like the pigs. The things of this world do not become you. 

Neither prince nor princess should live in a pigpen.  Your place is in the palace where princes reign not in the pig sty where the poop is piled!!!

Luke 15:11-23 Then He said: “A certain man had two sons. And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood. And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living. But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want. Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything. “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.”’ “And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry. “

Stand Strong and Speak

Belize Day 3 –
Today was a little more relaxed as we gathered together in the morning.  We have four professional teams coming to play futbol, all under 13 yrs old. One team recently won an international championship. We started with some worship and games, and I spoke to them for about ten minutes.
 4 teams playing 4 games is an all day event.  We watched, ate, and cheered on the teams. Finally, at the end, we awarded them some medals, water bottles and other practical and candied items.
Our final event of the day was for the guys on the team to lead a men’s meeting and the women to lead a women’s meeting at two different churches.  About 40 men were gathered for the men’s meeting and we went for two and a half hours in worshipping, preaching and praying for people.
It was here that I met a man named Sebastian. I talked with him for a while and found out that he was a new believer, 10 days, he had been saved and here he was hungry to learn. He admitted readily that before, he had been to several of the surrounding countries dating beautiful women but had by the grace of God not gotten any diseases like HIV… I think there was a little bit more than dating going on.  As I sat and talked, it was good to see how God was moving and how I got to be a small part of the growth of this man in the kingdom. Just being here and encouraging him was an important part of why I came on this trip.

Psalm 24:3-6 Who may ascend into the hill of the LordOr who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol,
Nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the LordAnd righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face.
It is time for you to stand up in the Kingdom!!!  You stand to fight, to run, to act, and command authority.  You cannot sit by and let things return to the evil one, but you must stand and take back the Kingdom of God.

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
It is time for you to strengthen yourself in the Lord!!!  Without Him leading, guiding, and strengthening you, you will not be able to stand.  He is the most important part of anything you do, and everything flows out of your relationship with Him.  Spend time deepening and strengthening that relationship and you will truly be able to stand strong!!!

Matthew 28:19-20 “Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
It is time for you to speak out!!!  Even if you are standing strong, if you do not speak out the truth of why and for Who you are standing, then you might as well be a tree or a statue.  It is good to stand strong but everyone around you needs to know the goodness and might of the Lord and the strength He has put in you.  He calls you to go and preach.  If you just go or just stand, you are the same as any other good ol’ boy.  However, when you speak out the Truth, this is what sets you apart from everyone else.  You have the love and truth of the Lord and this is why you must go out to share the love and truth that He has placed in you.

Challenge –
Ask God to help you to stand, go, and fight today to build His Kingdom.  Strengthen yourself in Him by spending a little extra time with Him.  Thank Him for this strength of heart and ask Him to strengthen you more.  Today, speak out the truth and love that you have.  Share the good news in a small or great way by speaking forth the wonderful works of God and why you are who you are, not by your power or might, but by the Grace of God and His Spirit!!!
