O’ My Goodness

Daily Encouragement –

Do you have all you need? Are you satisfied? Will you be satisfied for the next 5, 10, or 50 years with what you have now? 

Too often the thing or things you take pleasure in now, for a time, will lose value and be useless to you in a year or less. After that, you will “need” and desire something else, something better.
I urge you to come to Me!!! I am all you need! I have an abundance of peace and truth waiting for you to come and receive it. I have an infinite amount of fresh and new that is waiting for you to come and search out. 
I have so much goodness and prosperity waiting to pour out over you that it will overwhelm those around you. My goodness will cause many to fear and tremble at the abundant outpouring that is released over you as you come and seek Me! 

Do you know that you need Me more than anything or anyone else? Not only do I have all you need, I have all you could desire or ever hope  to seek out for all eternity!!! Come and see!!! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”

Vs. 9 “Then it shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise, and an honor before all nations of the earth, who shall hear all the good that I do to them; they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for it.”

Heart to Know

Daily Encouragement – 

Do you want what is good? Do you want to be built up? Do you desire to be planted firmly? It has always been My intention to bless, uphold, and make your way prosper. 

I desire the best for you. However, there is only one way for this to happen. You must come to Me with your whole heart. Do not hold anything back. The more you give yourself to seek, know, and follow Me; the more you will be blessed, built up, and prospered. 

I desire for you to walk with Me and to be My called and chosen ones. Let’s walk together into the Blessed Kingdom where I desire for you to rule and reign forever. 

Follow Me, and you will be able to begin receiving the benefits of The Kingdom even now. Come to Me and receive goodness, be planted, and built up in The Kingdom even as you become My heir, My child. I love you!!!

Jeremiah 24:6-7 “For I will set My eyes on them for good, and I will bring them back to this land; I will build them and not pull them down, and I will plant them and not pluck them up. 7 Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the Lord; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with their whole heart.”

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Forgotten, Forsaken, Stiffnecked

Daily Encouragement – 

Do you remember all the good I have done for you? Have you forgotten My goodness and grace, Who I Am? Are you hearing My words, obeying, and following Me completely? 

You must never forget the testimony I have created within you. All the goodness I have shown you and all I have done cannot be forgotten! The moment you forget Who I Am and how you have known Me, you will begin to forsake Me.  Suddenly, you will begin walking in the “wisdom” of your own way when you no longer bring to mind all the great things I have spoken, shown, and done for you. The moment you begin to do things your own way, your neck begins to get stiff, and you quit listening to My words. 

It is time to break the stiffness of your neck! Listen to My words! Hear them! Obey them! Follow Me! Remind yourself of My grace, mercy, and goodness; and cause yourself to walk in My way once again! Return to Me fully and walk with Me, My child! I love you!

Jeremiah 18:15
My people have forgotten Me; They burn incense to worthless gods, They have stumbled from their ways From the ancient roads, To walk in pathways, Not on a highway,

19:4, 15 
Because they have forsaken Me and made this an alien place, because they have burned incense in it to other gods whom neither they, their fathers, nor the kings of Judah have known, and have filled this place with the blood of the innocents…

Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, ‘Behold, I am going to bring on this city and on all its towns, all the devastation that I have declared against it, because they have become stiff-necked and refused to hear and obey My words.’”

Fire in My Bones

What if My children actually believed it? What if they actually believed My love for them and in My goodness? What could happen? What power could flow forth from that place of total and complete trust and faith? What victory could explode from the place of wholly belief? 

For My goodness is ever-reaching and My love, never-ending. I desire so much for an unhindered and pure relationship with My Bride. To be One with her. That she would be totally unafraid to be open and bare, raw with Me. Even in the places she would rather hide or hold back. The doors and rooms she would rather keep closed and secret; oh, that she would open up the doors that she placed under lock and key and let Me come in! For I see everything anyway. Nothing is hidden from My sight. Nothing is new or unseen in My eyes. My desire is for a releasing of My Spirit to move in the earth freely and totally invited as He was in the beginning of creation. For My Spirit hovered above the earth and the waters. 

Oh, that every heart would be flesh before Me that I may come in and mold and shape them into hearts of fire unto the shaking of nations, strongholds, and atmospheres! This is who you are, My loves!

Jeremiah‬ ‭20:9, 11-13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“But if I say I’ll never mention the Lord or speak in His name, His word burns in my heart like a fire. It’s like a fire in my bones! I am worn out trying to hold it in! I can’t do it!…But the Lord stands beside me like a great warrior. Before Him my persecutors will stumble. They cannot defeat me. They will fail and be thoroughly humiliated. Their dishonor will never be forgotten. O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, You test those who are righteous, and You examine the deepest thoughts and secrets. Let me see Your vengeance against them, for I have committed my cause to You. Sing to the Lord! Praise the Lord! For though I was poor and needy, He rescued me from my oppressors.”

‭‭Acts‬ ‭4:25-26, 29-31‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“You spoke long ago by the Holy Spirit through our ancestor David, Your servant, saying, ‘Why were the nations so angry? Why did they waste their time with futile plans? The kings of the earth prepared for battle; the rulers gathered together against the Lord and against His Messiah.’

And now, O Lord, hear their threats, and give us, Your servants, great boldness in preaching Your Word. Stretch out Your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.” After this prayer, the meeting place shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. Then they preached the Word of God with boldness.”

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!!!
