Get to the Heart of the Matter

Daily Encouragement-

Are you ready to listen and obey? Are you quick to carry out what I say? How have you handled My word in the past?

I know your heart! I know how much you trust your own intellect, feelings, and fears. When you come to Me and say you will be quick to obey all I have said to you, you mean it. However, you trust yourself more than Me. Whether you are trying to convince yourself or just say what you think I want to hear, I know your heart. 

Come to Me! Let Me do a work on and in your heart. Allow Me to transform your intellect into trust, your feelings into faith, and your fears into new love for Me. 

All that I have for you is The Best! Walk with Me and be transformed into the Best in Me!!! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 42:6 “Whether it is pleasing or displeasing, we will obey the voice of the Lord our God to whom we send you, that it may be well with us when we obey the voice of the Lord our God.”

Vs. 20-21 “For you were hypocrites in your hearts when you sent me to the Lord your God, saying, ‘Pray for us to the Lord our God, and according to all that the Lord your God says, so declare to us and we will do it.’ 21 And I have this day declared it to you, but you have not obeyed the voice of the Lordyour God, or anything which He has sent you by me.

Out of Weakness Made Strong

Daily Encouragement – 

Come a little closer and step into a new walk of faith that you never have before!!! You must press into Me and My promises not only for the salvation, healing, and freedom of your soul; but those of everyone around you. It is time to increase your faith and have endurance in faith until you see My promises take place! 

My people of faith throughout history walk in faith that subdues kingdoms, works righteousness, obtains promises, stops the mouths of lions, quenches fire, escapes the edge of the sword, and receives dead back to life again. In the midst of all these things, they were made strong out of weakness. 

It is true there is weakness in you, but this weakness is able to be made into strength by faith in Me! Draw near to Me and let’s walk into strength together. I love you My Child!!!

Hebrews 11:33-35 (AMP) “who by faith [that is, with an enduring trust in God and His promises] subdued kingdoms, administered justice, obtained promised blessings, closed the mouths of lions, 34 extinguished the power of [raging] fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became mighty and unbeatable in battle, putting enemy forces to flight. 35 Women received back their dead by resurrection…”

Multiplied Rewards

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. You know that I am able to multiply greatly what you give Me (time, money, resources…). All of these will be multiplied for the good of the Kingdom as you bring them to Me. Even as they are multipled for the Kingdom they will be given back in greater measure to you.

I am the Great Rewarder of all who press in to Me. Right now, your faith is being strengthened, your love is abounding, and your patience is bringing forth fruit. Even though you may have to go through some trials, know that I am with you causing you to be strengthened and grow in the midst of it.

You are pressing in to Me, and I am bringing you the rewards of heaven every single day. May you recognize these rewards and press in to Me even more!!! I love you my child!!!

2 Thessalonians 1:3-5 “your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other, 4 so that we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure, 5 which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer;”

Hebrews 11:6  “…for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

What is Best?

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. All hope is found in Me. Put your faith in Me and watch what I will do. It may not happen when or how you think it should, and in fact, it probably will not. My ways are not your ways, and I always know what is best.

You bring joy to Me as you stand up for Me and seek to advance My Kingdom. There is so much I have for you to do. Come near to Me, and I will reveal the next step for you to take to walk into your destiny. 

Do not worry. You will not have to do it on your own, and you cannot. I am with you. Holy Spirit will guide you, and give you the strength, power, and life to carry out all I have for you. 

You have a very special purpose. Come close to Me, and I will help you walk into it. I want the very best for you, and I will make it happen as you walk with Me day by day. I love you My child!!!

Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. 

Isaiah 55:8-9 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways,And My thoughts than your thoughts. 

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.

Come and Build

Daily Encouragement –

My child, I love you, and I am coming to rain down My presence in a new way! 

I see your heart and how you want to love Me more and carry out My work in the earth. I am revealing new things to you even now. Holy Spirit is upon you to reveal My plans and purposes for you today, this week, and even things to come.

Take one more step, come a little bit closer. Just a little more stepping out in faith to overcome the enemy. Your obedience to Me destroys the kingdom of the enemy one act at a time. 

Come and build with Me. I am doing a new thing and want you to be a part. You are My partner to put things in order and do the work to build the Kingdom.

Love Me. Follow Me. Partner with Me, and watch what I am able to build and establish for all eternity. Souls are counting on you and your obedience. I love you My child.

1 Corinthians 3:8-15 Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor. 
For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. 
But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 
For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 
Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 
each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. 
If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 
If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire. 

Everything You Need…

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child, and I am overwhelmed and overjoyed by how you want to please Me and My heart. I love how you choose to love Me as you serve and obey. 

Even now, I am opening the heavens and sending forth the rain of My blessings. You have been crying out for answers, revelation, movement, and My Spirit. I have not stopped sending all these things and more. 

Even though you may not recognize and receive it as this moment, you have everything you need right now to take the next step. 

Step out and watch the blessings of heaven back up your faith!!!

I will not let you stumble and fall, but will carry you until you are ready to stand, walk, and run into My presence. 

You can do it. You have it in you. Release the Spirit I have given and watch as I overflow you with even more than you have asked for. 
I love you My child.

Ephesians 1:3-7 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 
just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, 
having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 
to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. 
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace

Hurricane a Coming

Belize Day 5 – 13882148_10153636554657751_5191342013350119593_n-copy
 Today, our plans changed with the incoming hurricane.  We still went and delivered school supplies and clothing to the Valley of Peace. We purposefully prayed for each family for healing and life.

I took the team to the first family, where we were greeted by the boy pictured above, and we were able to pray for them and bless them.  It was good to be in this place of ministry once again, but I was sad that we did not get to do more personal ministry.  Even as we finished up giving away the last bags, the rain began to come.  From that point for the rest of the day it has rained with more or less intensity.

Right now, I am sitting in an open air building with a roof surrounded by rain and gushing winds as we wait for the storm to come.  There will not be much sleeping tonight.  We have a safe cement building to head to when things get really bad, but this is a new experience for me.  Never have I been in such a storm, and yet, I still have peace.  In the end, we can do nothing but pray and wait and wait and pray.  No amount of complaining, wishing, or even hard work will cause the storm to pass.  We must wait, trust, and pray for peace and protection.
At this moment, I realize that this is not any different than any other moment in life.  We can do a lot of things, but in the end, we must wait and pray for God to do the work.  We cannot cause anyone to grow and bear fruit, but we can plant the seed, water, and fertilize.  God brings the fruit, and causes us to be safe during the storm.  Storms come and they may howl and blow and seem strong and mighty, but God controls the storm.  He protects us in the storm and brings about good in the midst of roaring rushing wind all around.
Devotion –
Storms will come.  They sometimes surround us and cause us to cower under their intensity and might.  Storms are still a mystery because they are something we cannot control.  However, God is our peace in the midst of the storm.  He protects us and guides us into the best way.  God uses the manner in which we handle storms as a witness to who He is.  We must trust that He is mightier than the storm and obey even when it may not make sense.  His love is more powerful than the raw potential of the strongest storm.  He is our peace!  He is our comfort!  He is the one who brings the best out of the worst.
Challenge –
I challenge you to look at your circumstances in a different way today.  The boss that is unhappy with you, the co-worker that says things that hurt you, the family member that purposefully does things to get on your nerves, look to God and pray for Him to help you respond as He would.  Respond in love, peace, and trust in the worst possible circumstances that God may get the full glory!!!
