The Memorial 20/40

You are invited to join us for The Propel Fast! Please review Propelled To The Next Level and other words for the reasons behind the fast as well as daily encouragement!

Well, here we are at day 20, the halfway point.  At the beginning of the fast, it may have seemed impossible to fast The 40, but here we are halfway to completing our commitment.  If you have been here from day 1, congratulations. If you jumped in some time along the way, good job. If you fell and messed up, no problem.  Let’s get up and continue on together in God’s great grace and mercy.  We have the eternal reward of seeing Jesus in a special way today.  Let’s run this race to receive the prize!

Today, is a special day that we remember and mark as a memorial.  We see it as an encouragement to continue, but it is an important spiritual marker as well. God looks on and remembers all the special times we give to seek Him in a special way.  If God is truly “a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him”, then special times of seeking Him will receive a special reward.  I am sure we would all like to see some scripture backing up this encouragement.  For this, let us look at Acts 10.

This chapter is pivotal for Acts and especially for us as Gentiles.  Until this point, we have seen the apostles going out and ministering to God’s children in Israel only.  At this moment, God changes the mind of the apostles to include all people everywhere in the preaching of the good news.  God was opening the door for them to go out and preach the gospel to the uttermost part of the earth. To do this, God needed someone that was seeking Him.  Someone who was doing something special in The Kingdom. He needed Cornelius.

Acts 10:1-2 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment, a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always.

Cornelius was a well-respected Roman leader who was known for fearing God, giving and praying always.  Here was a Gentile seeking God.  He had built a reputation as one who would seek God in a special way, so apparently, he had been doing this for years.  We find out later in the chapter, that not only was he seeking God, giving generously, and praying continually, he was also fasting.

Acts 10:30 So Cornelius said, “Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing,

Cornelius, a non-Jewish person, had built a lifestyle of seeking God in a special way.  Here was a man that God could use to bring about the most radical change in The Kingdom since Holy Spirit fell in Acts 2.

Acts 10:3-4 About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God coming in and saying to him, “Cornelius!” And when he observed him, he was afraid, and said, “What is it, lord?” So he said to him, “Your prayers and your alms have come up for a memorial before God.

What does this verse say? Cornelius’ fasting, prayer, and giving went up as a memorial before The Lord. The eyes of The Lord were looking for someone who was seeking Him to change the very course of history for the rest of eternity.  Unknowingly, Cornelius had built a huge neon sign in the spiritual realm that said, “Here I am, use me!” God did not have to look far or hard to see the great memorial that had been built up for years by this man that had no real guarantee of receiving anything for any of these things he did.  His desire and intention was to seek God and bless His people.  God sees the memorial and says, “Here is a man I can use.”

Cornelius obeys the instructions above and beyond what the angel speaks, it seems even better than Peter.  A reluctant Peter comes and cannot even finish a proper sermon before the hunger and expectation in the people that Cornelius had gathered together was rewarded with the outpouring of The Spirit.

How long did Cornelius cry out, “Here I am use me”? 

How many years of continuous prayer, fasting, and giving were being built up before the time was right for God to move in a mighty way? 

How much time did he spend in the secret place not seeming to receive anything?  

Was Cornelius fasting and praying somewhere while the Holy Spirit was poured out on the apostles in the upper room? 

How big was the memorial that was built up before God?

On that day, when Holy Spirit fell on him and all the people he had gathered together in obedience to the word, it was all worth it.  He would not have traded one shekel, one meal, one hour that went into the building of this memorial in The Kingdom.  At this point, his spirit was crying out more than ever, “Here I am use me!”

This is my encouragement for you. No matter how you may have struggled during the first 20 days, Jesus is worth it.  The memorial being built in your life is greater than you could imagine. How many have been willing to go The 40 that God might look on the earth and see these memorials all over the earth saying, “Here I am use me!”?  This is who I want to be. I want to be used for The Kingdom. I want to be a laborer in the harvest. I want to be the most useful instrument in The Kingdom. If there is no one else willing to do the dirty work, may my sign continue to say, “Here I am, use me!!!” I know this is your heart as well.

What can God do with a community of people who say “Here I am use me” with their lips and their lifestyle?

Jesus, give me the strength of spirit and resolve to continue throughout the rest of The 40 and beyond in a memorial building lifestyle.  I desire to be the one whose lips and lifestyle loudly proclaim, “Here I am use me!” 

Practical –

  • Ask Holy Spirit to strengthen you to continue in your daily commitment
  • Continue to pray “Here I am use me” with your lips
  • Become increasingly obedient in your day to day life in all Holy Spirit reveals

Be blessed to receive revelation of the memorial you have created by recognizing the answered prayers and receiving the promises of God in an increasing measure.  May you be used mightily for The Kingdom as your heart and character line up with The King’s!

Press Through to Breakthrough 19/40

You are invited to join us for The Propel Fast! Please review Propelled To The Next Level and other words for the reasons behind the fast as well as daily encouragement!

Here we go again!  Another awesome day in The Lord.  There may not be anything special to day 19 for you, but God has a special reward for those who diligently seek Him.  He has your reward!  He is the reward! He has more on day 19 to give than yesterday, and I pray a special outpouring of His glory and grace to continue in strength, life, and provision today!

Hallelujah!

God is good and continually blesses our mouths with good thing.  Whether we are eating or not, He nourishes our soul and spirit with true manna from heaven.  Every single one of us is seeking Him in prayer and fasting for a reason and a purpose.  I have encouraged you to make a list of things to be praying and declaring over the length of the fast.  Do not neglect to pray for these things.  On my list are the impossible things, supernatural healing, wisdom from heaven, open doors, souls, nations, freedom and breakthrough.  Do not allow discouragement to dishearten you from pressing in and continuing to lift these things up in prayer to the Lord. 

We do not see all that is taking place in the spiritual realm, but we know this:

James 5:16-18 tremendous power is released through the passionate, heartfelt prayer of a godly believer! 17 Elijah was a man with human frailties, just like all of us, but he prayed and received supernatural answers. He actually shut the heavens over the land so there would be no rain for three and a half years! 18 Then he prayed again and the skies opened up over the land so that the rain came again and produced the harvest.
Passionate, diligent, earnest prayers from a believer walking in righteousness have the power to change things that happen in the spiritual realm.  We discuss this more in “Shifting the Heavens“.  What is does not mention in this passage is that Elijah had to go before the Lord and pray seven times before He began to see the fruit of his prayer for rain to return to the land (1 Kings 18:42-46).  Elijah’s powerful prayers were not immediately answered.  He had to press through to breakthrough.  He had to get past his doubts, fear, worries, and seeming lack of power to experience the blessing that God had promised would come.  He had to look to the promise and press in until he saw fulfillment of that promise.

Later, we see an interesting story taking place in Judges 20 that demonstrates the point even more fully.  During a time when Israel was without a leader, every man did what was right in his own eyes.  Here, the city of Gibeah, of the tribe of Benjamin, had committed an atrocity.  Their fleshly desire to abuse and injure a Levite led them to instead rape and murder his female slave.  Instead of repenting, the entire tribe of Benjamin “backs their boys” and goes out to war against the rest of Israel who is coming against them as retribution for turning from The Lord and committing this atrocity.

Israel asked The Lord if they should war against Benjamin and who should go first.  God speaks for them to go and put Judah first.  Following God’s direction, 22,000 men of Israel are slain during Israel’s defeat that day.  Israel goes to God again and asks if they should return to the battle.  God says go, and at the instruction of God, 18,000 more people are slaughtered and Israel defeated.  Israel, God’s people fighting for justice and righteousness, are sorely defeated because they listened and obeyed God’s words explicitly.  

Why was this happening?  Why were they defeated? What was taking place?

Twice, Israel went through devastating tragedies and they were doing right.  They were obeying the law.  Whatever else was happening, there was tremendous discouragement was taking place over their defeat.  This is their response:

 

Judges 20:26-28 Then all the children of Israel, that is, all the people, went up and came to the house of God and wept. They sat there before the Lord and fasted that day until evening… So the children of Israel inquired of the Lord… saying, “Shall I yet again go out to battle against the children of my brother Benjamin, or shall I cease?”  And the Lord said, “Go up, for tomorrow I will deliver them into your hand.”
Again, the people of Israel return to the Lord.  This time, it says that all the people came to The Lord with repentance, fasting and prayer.  We do not know if all the people were unified before, but now, they know they need a breakthrough and only God can help them.  Their military prowess has been overwhelmingly defeated and only God can give them the breakthrough.  In unified hearts, prayers, and fasting, they follow the instructions of the The Lord and 30 of their people die in the battle the next day, but 25,100 of the tribe of Benjamin are defeated.  Whether the change was in their hearts, mind, or actions, they finally come into line with The Lord and gain their victory and breakthrough.  

This is my encouragement for today, it is in repentance, fasting, and prayer that our hearts fully come into line with God, His plans, and His purposes.  Whether the change takes place in us or in the spiritual realm, we cannot always understand or know.  What I do know is that we must press through to breakthrough.  A butterfly must struggle to be released from its chrysalis or it will never have the strength to fly in the power it has been given.  It will languish and die if released by some other unseen force beyond its own struggle.  Through the struggles, it is empowered to breakthrough and fly.  May this word be manifest in us today.  Through your struggling and warring with God in the secret place, may you press through and gain the strength and sustenance to breakthrough and walk in the next levels with Him.
Jesus, help me to never give up on following You and what You have called me to do, say, pray for, or walk in.  I trust You to complete Your promises even as You strengthen me to press through every hindrance into the destiny You have designed for me.
Practical –

  • Ask Holy Spirit to bring to remembrance the promises spoken to you that you may not be pressing in to see take place at this moment.
  • Ask for a renewal of strength to press in for the breakthrough in these areas
  • Ask for His patient perseverance to press through the fear, worry, unbelief, and other obstacles
  • Continue to press through for the breakthrough

I bless you to receive the power and strength of The Almighty to press through that the breakthrough may take place in you and the lives of all those around you.

The Great Reward 2/40

You are invited to join us for The Propel Fast! Please review Propelled To The Next Level and other words for the reasons behind the fast as well as daily encouragement!

Keep up the good work! You can do it! Day 2 has in the past been my hardest day to overcome. It is helpful during these first three days of struggling, to overcome our flesh’s addictions, that we keep our eyes on the prize.

What is the prize?

What is the reward?

Hebrews 11:6 reminds us that God “is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

My own personal interpretation of this passage is that God will reward us as we seek Him even when we do not really want to. At this point in the fast, it is probably where we all are.

What is the reward?

The writer of Hebrews says later in Chapter 12 verse 2 that Jesus endured the cross because of the “...joy set before Him…

What is this joy?

What is it that will keep us going in the middle of this fast, but also the troubles of this life?

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 talks of the momentary light afflictions working for us an exceeding and eternal weight of glory.  That is what I want!

I desire the reward from The Father!

I crave the joy in the middle of the troubling times!

I am looking for the eternal weight of glory that I gain in the heavenlies as I give up a few things for a few days here on this earth. 

You! You were the joy that caused Jesus to endure the cross. Your soul was worth it!

Jesus! He is my reward! More of His presence! More communion with Him! Deeper relationship and knowing of The Creator of The Universe as my friend!

Souls! Family, friends, neighbors, and nations is what I am claiming for my heavenly inheritance and eternal reward!

Jesus, I thank You that You are my reward! I ask for an increasing eternal reward of family, friends, neighbors, and nations for You and Your Kingdom!!!

Practical – Write down the rewards you are looking for and review them when your soul needs to remember why you are fasting.

  • What reward do you hope to gain from this fast?
  • What are you claiming as your eternal inheritance?

Be blessed with the great reward from heaven as you are propelled into the next level!!!

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Propelled Into The Next Level

It has been a great to joy to sit back and watch how God has used Katie to take over most of the encouragement this year.  With what God is speaking now, I felt it necessary to share this encouragement that will help propel you to the next level in your relationship with God.

Are you in a place of weary waiting?  Have you stood on the promises of God and cried out for so long and nothing seems to happen?  Do you desire a change of circumstances? Are you desperate for doors to be opened? Are you hungry for new power to be released?

Do you desire to be propelled to the next level?!?!

Many may not receive this as a word of encouragement.  Most will ignore it and continue in the same old way of life. Some will accept it as truth, but few will take this word of encouragement and put it into practice and be powerfully propelled into new levels with the Lord.

The principle I am going to speak of was followed by every major player in both the Old and New Testament. Moses, David, Elisha, Peter, Paul, John and so many more all followed this principle and were propelled into new levels of power when they did.  It seems strange in knowing all this that anyone who truly follows Christ would be unwilling to participate in this practice.  It is never easy for any of us to deny our flesh and follow in the footsteps of Christ.  However, obedience will rocket us into the exponential increase that we all desire. 

For those who truly desire to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, let us hear what He has to say about this great power available for all who partake in it.

Matthew 6:16 “…when you fast…”  

What did He say?  Is that in red? Did Jesus actually say the “F” word?  Why didn’t He say IF you fast”? Isn’t fasting just an option for true extremists?

How many of you have been in church for years and never heard anything about fasting?  Obviously, this verse must be taken out of context or some obscure part that no one ever reads.  I am sorry to say that this is right in the middle of probably the most famous sermon of all time “The Sermon on the Mount”.  From this discourse we get, “The Beatitudes”, “The Lord’s Prayer”, “Love your enemies”, and many of the other more famous words of Jesus.

You can read the context for yourself in Matthew 6, but here is a quick refresher.

Matthew 6:3-4But when you give, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your giving may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.”

“When you give” is a passage that probably comes up regularly during offering time in the church. Here, the Father rewards the giving that is done out of a right heart.  Nobody would deny these words of Jesus as being essential to growth in the Lord.

Matthew 6:6 “…when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”

Here is another widely known passage that is followed by the Model Prayer.  Everyone would affirm that it is necessary to pray and learn how to pray more and better to proceed in your walk with God.  The Father who sees these prayers will reward you for the time spent praying and crying out to Him.

The passage from Matthew 6:16-18 continues in the same parallel repeating twice, “…when you fast…”. The thought is completed as verse 18 ends your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”

Surely Jesus would not put fasting on the same level as giving and praying in the essential steps to being propelled into the next level in The Kingdom.  Whenever I bring up this topic, people groan and look at me like some sort of alien. “I like food too much”, or “that is too hard,” or “you are crazy”, are some of the common responses that I have received just by bringing up one or two verses as I have mentioned above.  I encourage you to study fasting throughout the New and Old Testament and see the great men that walked it out and what they gained as a lifestyle of fasting with prayer out of a right heart.

img_6674.jpgIf nothing else, Jesus Himself left us the perfect example. After Jesus’ baptism in Matthew 3, He was led by The Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. This was the time of testing that would prove who Jesus really was.  What did Jesus do to prepare and continue to stand strong in the midst of the greatest onslaught of the enemy? At the beginning of Matthew 4, we see plainly that Jesus fasted forty days. He gave up the worldly way of gaining strength and power and took up the spiritual empowerment of fasting and prayer.  Because of this, He was ready for all the enemy had to throw at Him.

Later in Matthew 17:20-21, prayer and fasting come up again as a dynamite combination that allows the impossible to be accomplished through your life.  So many of us want a secret formula that will help us overcome the enemy, or the secret weapon that will destroy the enemies’ hold on our lives. Here it is:

I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.  However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.

If you need more incentive here are just some of the benefits of fasting and praying with the right heart:

  1. Corporate Freedom (The Salvation of a City) Jonah 3:1-10

Here an entire city, over 120,000 are saved because of repentance, fasting and prayer

2.  The Healing of the Land2 Chronicles 7:13-14

If you study it out, the main outward expression of humbling yourself before God is fasting.

3. To Influence Government and Save a PeopleEsther 4:16-17

Esther, Mordecai, and the Jewish people fasted and prayed and God brought deliverance.

4. Personal Freedom and BreakthroughIsaiah 58

This is probably the best place to view many of the numerous blessings of fasting and prayer out of a right heart.

5. Empowerment of the AngelicDaniel 9:3-4, 20-21

6. Opening of the Eyes to Spiritual RealmDaniel 10:2-11, Acts 10:30

7. Gaining UnderstandingDaniel 9:3-10:12

There are many more benefits and blessings that can be found throughout Scripture if you care to study the topic further.

Before I end, I want to give a few simple definitions of fasting.

Lou Engle states “Fasting and prayer is designed to humble yourself, reveal your flesh, and purify your worship“.

David Hogan says “Fasting is a good way to get hungry“.

A personal definition that I have come up with is giving up a legitimate pleasure as a sacrifice to gain breakthrough and a deepening relationship with the Lord.  We do this because we love Jesus, and He is worth it!

I want to encourage you to begin cultivating a lifestyle of prayer and fasting into your Christian walk.  Every new level in my personal life has been marked by a new commitment to prayer, fasting, and spending time in The Word.

THIS IS YOUR INVITATION TO INCREASE!!!

From Monday, August 26th – Friday, October 4th God has called me to consecrate a 40 day fast for several reasons not the least of which is Revival and souls for The Kingdom.  I encourage you to fast one, two, or all of the three major areas that we are controlled by:

  1. Food
  2. Media
  3. Sleep

Allow God to lead you into the next level of fasting that you may be propelled into the next level with Him.

A word of advice when fasting food more than three days, please study the right way not only to fast but also to break a fast. Often the world understands the health benefits of fasting better than Christians understand the spiritual benefits. Because of this, there are many websites that can aid in fasting and breaking extended fasts.

If you would like to carry on further study here are the three best books I have found on prayer and fasting;

  1. The Atomic Power with God thru Fasting and Prayer by Franklin Hall
  2. Shaping History through Prayer and Fasting by Derek Prince
  3. The Jesus Fast by Lou Engle

May the Lord truly bless you as you prepare to be propelled into the next level with Him.  Always remember:

Hebrews 11:6 “…He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

May you receive the fullness of The Great Rewarder!!!

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Kentucky: Your Dawn is Awakening!

This past week news broke that Senate Bill 9, the “heartbeat bill” passed through the Senate. The following day, the Kentucky House Committee met to deliberate House Bill 148, the post-Roe v. Wade Abortion Ban (“trigger bill”). Within a few hours, the bill passed overwhelmingly. This means that if Roe v. Wade is overturned or the decision is remanded back to the states, abortion will be illegal in Kentucky except for the life or physical health of the mother.

On September 7, I released a post called, Into the Wilderness We Go!, over the state of Kentucky and inevitably the whole of America, and regarding Father’s heart on abortion. I shared of a vision I received from the Lord while in prayer that the doors of the E.M.W. Women’s Clinic, the sole abortion mill in the state, had an eviction notice on their doors. I then saw the hands of Jesus slap a huge yellow sticker across the doors that said, “CLOSED PERMANENTLY.” He then began to speak to me:

Prophetic Word for Kentucky- SEPTEMBER 5, 2018

“Getting back to the start, to the beginning, to the roots. From this place where I birthed the wave of outpouring into the nation, will I birth a new thing. Out of this place will come a dual wave of Righteousness and Justice embodied. Out of this place will I release a third wave new to the eyes and heart of man. Because of the exchange of selfishness for Righteousness, I will pour out a new vision.
No longer will the spilled blood of My Little Ones stain this soil! No longer will the shedding of innocent blood brood over you, Kentucky! For through you, I will set the standard for the whole of the nation to follow. Just as with the second great move of My Spirit that originated in the wilderness, purifying the disgusting debauchery from your soul, so will I do it again!
Your soil is Ripe for Harvest! I will make you a signpost along the Highway of Holiness, pointing out the way for those who come after you. Out of your heart will I birth a strategic blueprint for a restoration of the soul of Revival. Out of this place will a fire ignite in your church to arise and carry the weight of the influx that is coming.
Get ready Kentucky, for a baby boom is coming! Yes, the twins are being established in your womb! Not only will you see a baby boom in the natural- for all of the babies that would have been aborted are being given over to Salvation; Life will rage within your borders! Awakening and an enabling in the Body will arise to the spirit of Adoption. Babies will be saved and receive My family as their own. You will also experience a baby boom in the spiritual, for the wave of Righteousness will bring them in by the droves to your light!
I decree and declare that your buildings will not be large enough! Yes, back to the wilderness will you find yourself! Prepare your tents! Establish your tent pegs in the soil and let My Spirit breathe upon your laid down tents! Indeed, your Harvest is Ripe and Ready!

After spending the day praying for the House Bill to pass and seeing the news of it’s approval, an overwhelming feeling of victory arose within my spirit. I felt Holy Spirit come upon me and begin to prophesy. This is what He said:

Prophetic Word for Kentucky- FEBRUARY 13, 2019

“Your days of drought are coming to an end! Where you have come to know yourself as ‘Abandoned Kentucky’ will no longer be your identity; for it was never your original design. You will be known as ‘The City of Life’; for Life will rage within your borders and the Light of Life will emanate from you unto the nation around you. Yes, states will be drawn to your Light! Nations will be drawn to your Life!
Truly, I say to you, you will lead the charge of restoration unto family reformation! Broken nations and hearts will see the restoration within your walls and come to you for counsel on what has caused you to come into your place.
You will testify that I DID THIS! Yes, there is no one else who could take what was once broken and establish a City of Refuge for My Little Ones! All the world will see and follow your tracks. Your unbending submission to My Unbridled Spirit rolling across your land has ushered in the greatest Revival you have ever seen!
You thought you had seen it all when I created the Second Great Awakening within your borders; but you haven’t seen anything yet! The Promise of the Warhorse, yes, My promise to you has come to bring to completion all that I sent it forth to do! Your best days are ahead of you, Kentucky! You will KNOW Light and Life like never before! His name is Jesus!”

Sunrise in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, the conception place of The Second Great Awakening.

Over Thanksgiving break a few months ago, God led Jeremiah and I to Kentucky on a faith journey with Him. Through a massive series of events, visions, dreams, and signs spaced over a year and a half time period, we went to Harrodsburg, Kentucky, the conception place of The Second Great Awakening. We sought the will of the Lord for the state and to pray over the land. We claimed Kentucky as our inheritance and proclaiming awakening, life, and the words that God has spoken about the state. I held onto the very first vision that He gave me on August 16, 2017 that lit my heart on fire for the state of Kentucky. I believe that now is the time to release it.

In this vision, I saw a bright light begins to line the border of the state and an explosion happened centrally after a line of fire, like a dynamite fuse came from the east to that spot. The explosion led to small vein-like fuses that spread out and hit another major spot in the west side; leading to another explosion and vein-like fuses expanding out into surrounding regions and states.

“My Spirit is brooding over the land awaiting My chosen ones to rise up in true unity across the board. There has been a divisive spirit at work for far too long; and a house divided cannot stand…it will crumble. A remnant has remained and upheld ground as I draw those that will come and strengthen them to press in in the heat of the battle. Soon you will see a whole region rise up in praise and adoration and fall in repentance and reverence, in intercession.
“You want fire?…come and get it!!! It’s free for those of true hunger, for those who long for what is so far beyond them and their own plans and capabilities. That’s how I long to move.
“The dynamite of My Spirit has been lit and its fuse extends to the heart. Just as the heart pumps life to the whole body, so My Spirit is moving to set ablaze the whole body.”


I truly believe that what we are seeing now has sparked a move of Life that no power in hell can stop! Now many states across the United States are adopting similar bills and methods in which Kentucky has bore in guarding the lives of His Little Ones, our babies. We must continue to step up and contend for the entirety of Father’s plans to be made manifest!

We must REALLY PULL HEAVEN DOWN THROUGH OUR PRAYERS AND OUR YES!

For I decree to you, where Kentucky goes, America will follow!

IMG_6605

This peaceful horse was on the property we stayed at. Separated from the others due to a leg injury, he often came while I prayed over the valley in early morning. Father had me perform a prophetic act of feeding him an apple and declaring that on the day he would run again, would be the day He would unleash His unbridled Spirit in KY. Feeding him an apple represented the harvest He would bring with Him.

Driving into Kentucky, the state sign says, “Kentucky: Unbridled Spirit”. Kentucky IS the Land of the Unbridled Spirit!!! Unbridled means “unrestrained”. I see Holy Spirit riding across the state with a fresh wave of His Spirit and churches are coming together as a result of a Revival that broke out in central Kentucky on Pentecost this past year. The groundwork is being laid and the land is being primed and made ready. Kentucky’s state motto is, “United We Stand, Divided We Fall.”
Psalm 133 (TPT) states, How truly wonderful and delightful to see brothers and sisters living together in sweet unity! It’s as precious as the sacred scented oil flowing from the head of the high priest Aaron, dripping down upon his beard and running all the way down to the hem of his priestly robes. This heavenly harmony can be compared to the dew dripping down from the skies upon Mount Hermon, refreshing the mountain slopes of Israel. For from this realm of sweet harmony God will release his eternal blessing, the promise of life forever!

Whether you live in Kentucky or not, do not withhold your prayers and claiming Kentucky for Light and Life! Kentucky bore and cultivated the seed of The Second Great Awakening in the very place that God led us to, to strike the ground and decree that Kentucky shall be saved and accomplish her purpose!

Hosea 10:12 (NKJV)
“Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.”
(AMP) — “Sow with a view to righteousness [that righteousness, like seed, may germinate]; reap in accordance with mercy and lovingkindness. Break up your uncultivated ground, for it is time to seek and search diligently for the Lord [and to long for His blessing] until He comes to rain righteousness and His gift of salvation on you.”

Secret of Success

Daily Encouragement –

My child, I love you, and I want to see you succeed fully. Do you know the secret of success?

Come to Me! I am the One who gives everything you need for success. I give dreams, visions, and plans all revealed from the mysteries of the Kingdom. I bring connection and resources for what I want to come about.  Buildings, properties, and land are all in My hands to give. 

Strength, wisdom, and endurance flow through Holy Spirit to those who ask. All these things and more are Mine to give as I see fit. Remember, I reward those who diligently seek Me. 

Come to Me. Ask what you desire. Be faithful and stand strong with what you have already been given. Good stewards will be given more as they are faithful with what they have.

Faithful stewardship over time advances My Kingdom and allows Me to release even more to you. This is who you are My child. Continue to do it with excellence!

Luke 19:11-27 Now as they heard these things, He spoke another parable, because He was near Jerusalem and because they thought the kingdom of God would appear immediately. 
12 Therefore He said: “A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and to return. 
13 So he called ten of his servants, delivered to them ten minas, and said to them, ‘Do business till I come.’ 
14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We will not have this man to reign over us.’ 
15 “And so it was that when he returned, having received the kingdom, he then commanded these servants, to whom he had given the money, to be called to him, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. 
16 Then came the first, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned ten minas.’ 
17 And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant; because you were faithful in a very little, have authority over ten cities.’ 
18 And the second came, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned five minas.’ 
19 Likewise he said to him, ‘You also be over five cities.’ 
20 “Then another came, saying, ‘Master, here is your mina, which I have kept put away in a handkerchief. 
21 For I feared you, because you are an austere man. You collect what you did not deposit, and reap what you did not sow.’ And he said to him, 
22 Out of your own mouth I will judge you, you wicked servant. You knew that I was an austere man, collecting what I did not deposit and reaping what I did not sow. 
23 Why then did you not put my money in the bank, that at my coming I might have collected it with interest?’ 
24 “And he said to those who stood by, ‘Take the mina from him, and give it to him who has ten minas.
25 But they said to him, ‘Master, he has ten minas.’ 
26 ‘For I say to you, that to everyone who has will be given; and from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. 
27 But bring here those enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, and slay them before me.’”
