Are You Needy?

Daily Encouragement –

What do you need today? How do you plan on getting through this week, month, year? What are you trusting in? Do you trust your might, your resources, yourself? 

Pride is you trusting in you and your way. Pride tells you that you can make it by working harder, getting more education, making more money… These things are not bad, but trusting in them is pride. 

Do you realize you need Me? A basic acknowledgement and belief in Me is required for salvation. However, you must learn to rely on Me every single day to excel in life. Pride says you can get through because of something of yourself, what you have said or done. 

You need Me! You need to trust Me! As you trust Me, I will bring everything you need to be fully blessed. If you learn to trust Me as much as you trust yourself, you will be unstoppable in The Kingdom! Come and trust Me today! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 49:4 Why do you boast… O backsliding daughter? Who trusted in her treasures, saying, ‘Who will come against me?’

V. 16 Your fierceness has deceived you, The pride of your heart…

Matthew 5:3 “Blessed [spiritually prosperous, happy, to be admired] are the poor in spirit [those devoid of spiritual arrogance, those who recognize their spiritual need], for theirs is the kingdom of heaven[both now and forever].

Self-Help???

Daily Encouragement – 

What are you saying? What are you doing? Are you speaking out My words or your own? Are you walking in My way or doing your own thing? Whose power are you walking in? 

The rise of self-help books is amusing to Me. In all your human strength, intellect, and self-control; you cannot change your selfish, sinful flesh. You will always think you know better and can do better if you try harder. Do not be foolish! 

Change only comes as you line yourself up with Me and My Word!  Come to Me! I have done the hard work of living a completely selfless, sinless life. Follow Me in My Way and receive all the blessings and life I gained by doing this! Why would you restlessly struggle to survive doing your own thing? 

Come to Me and enjoy the fruit of The Kingdom I have waiting for you!!! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 44:16-17 “As for the word that you have spoken to us in the name of the Lord, we will not listen to you! 17 But we will certainly do whatever has gone out of our own mouth…”

Prideful Opinion or Humble Trust?

Daily Encouragement –

What’s your opinion? What do you think? How much do you value yourself over Me and My word? 

Everyone has a thought or opinion about serious ( and even non-serious) matters, and most of the time you never have to ask for them. Pride and selfishness will raise their ugly heads and let you know what they think about whatever it is rather quickly. The hard part is learning to listen and trust Me over these two demons! Pride makes you think your way is the best no matter what it may be. Selfishness causes you to desire whatever is best or looks best to you. 

Cut these off at the roots and come to Me with humility. My ways are higher than your ways! Come to Me with trust knowing that I have your eternally best interests concerning all things. 

Come to Me! Trust Me! Follow Me! Love Me in all you do! This journey is worth it, and it will take a lifetime to complete. I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 43:2-4 “…all the proud men spoke, saying to Jeremiah, “You speak falsely! The Lord our God has not sent you to say, ‘Do not go to Egypt to dwell there.’ 3 But Baruch the son of Neriah has set you against us, to deliver us into the hand of the Chaldeans, that they may put us to death or carry us away captive to Babylon.” 4 So Johanan the son of Kareah, all the captains of the forces, and all the people would not obey the voice of the Lord…”

Deeper Truth

Daily Encouragement – 

Do you hear Me now? Do you know and speak The Truth? Does the Truth you are hearing lead you into deeper communion with Me? 

I am always speaking, and My truth will be spoken no matter what goes on. Come to Me and hear clearly what I am saying! 

My truth will always lead you into deeper communion with Me! My truth that seems hard or harsh is calling you to come closer, get things right, and pray for mercy.  My truth of blessing and life is calling you to come closer in praise, thanksgiving, and seeking Me in a deeper way. 

I will not speak a word that leaves you where you are and does not call you to something deeper, something higher! The lie of the enemy will leave you saying “I’m good”, “My way is OK”, or “I do not need anything or anyone else right now.” 

Come to Me and receive My truth that is continually calling you into deeper communion with Me!!! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 27:18 “But if they are prophets, and if the word of the Lord is with them, let them now make intercession to the Lord of hosts…”

Greater Than Jesus?

Daily Encouragement Dec 5 –

Are you greater than I am? Are you truly following Me? Are you walking as I walked? 

I was sent into the world to bear witness of The Father, The Truth. I never prayed to be taken out of the world or moved somewhere else. This world is hard and fear, son, darkness, and death are around every corner. But do not fear! I am with you! 

I never prayed for Myself or My own to be taken out of the horrible unpleasant situations we were in. Where I was, was where I was sent! That is where I was sent to serve. 

When you pray to be taken out of the darkness instead of shining My light where you are, you are saying you are more important and greater than I Myself did. Pray for strength to shine brightly and bear witness of the Truth for I am always with you no matter where you are!!! I love you My child!!!

John 17:15-19  I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but that You keep them and protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth [set them apart for Your purposes, make them holy]; Your word is truth. 18 Just as You commissioned and sent Me into the world, I also have commissioned and sent them (believers) into the world. 19 For their sake [e]I sanctify Myself [to do Your will], so that they also may be sanctified [set apart, dedicated, made holy] in [Your] truth.

God of Overflowing Abundance

Daily Encouragement – 

Why are you thirsty? Why are you in need? Why are you lacking? I am The God of Abundance who fills to overflowing. I have more than enough of all you need. 

Come to Me!!! Receive from Me!!! Do not try to just make it by on your own abilities and resources. I have all you need in abundance If you will draw near to Me!!!

Come and know Me!!! I have provided! I have prepared the way! I have done the hard work! Come to Me! Follow Me! And I will lead you into it. 

Your desire must become doing My will and not your own selfish thing. My way benefits everyone for all time, and your ways temporarily please only you. 

Come and receive in abundance the greatest blessings you could ever receive!!! I love you My child!!!

John 4:34-38 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. 35 Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and thencomes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! 36 And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. 37 For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.”

Seek & Find

Daily Encouragement –

What are you seeking? Whom are you really seeking? Are you looking for a sign? A wonder? Or just to please yourself? Too many times, you are seeking the wrong thing or the wrong person. If you search hard enough, you will always find what you are looking for, but what are you really looking for?

Do not search for the living among the dead!!! You may fool yourself or be deceived into looking to things of this world for life. I assure you; there is only death in them. Whom are you seeking? 

If you are looking for the author of life, do not look the way of the world. Destroy any self-seeking in yourself, and look to Me for all the life you will ever need. Life eternal. I have so much waiting for you to search out. 

Seek Me! Draw near to Me! Press in to Me, and receive My life eternal right now!!! I love you My child!!!

Luke 24:5 “Why do you seek the living among the dead?”
