Holy Hugs

Daily Encouragement – 

My child, I hear you calling out to Me. I know that this is a time of seeking and asking for revelation. Know that I love the journey and adventure of you seeking Me out. 

As you seek the answer, you draw near to Me. You come closer to Me than normal. Just as you enjoy the special nearness of a small child giving you a hug, this is what is happening as you seek Me out. There is a nearness that touches My heart. 

Never fear! I will answer! I will bring revelation! I will provide everything you need at the proper time! 

Until then, enjoy being near me in My presence. I know I do! I love you and would never withhold and good thing from you. It just may be delayed for a little while as you are prepared and as I prepare the way!!! I love you My child!!! 

Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter.

Psalm 34:8-10 Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
9 Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints!
There is no want to those who fear Him.
10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger; But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.

Special Blessing

Daily Encouragement July 7 – 

I love you My child! I have granted you a special blessing, to know Me. No other creature has the ability to commune with Me like you. Even though you were wicked and unclean, I desired to be close and intimate with you.

Because of this, I sent Jesus as another special blessing. In believing in the sacrifice of His body and blood, you are able to be made righteous and holy. Now, you are not just able to stand before Me, but now you can come closer and closer and truly come to know Me.

Never forget these blessings or neglect to take advantage of them. Coming close to Me is a blessing I have provided for you because I love you and want to be with you forever. I love you My child!

Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.


Daily Encouragement –

 I love you My child. I am pouring out so much upon you that you cannot even contain it.  

You have received an abundance and overflow for many to experience and come to Me. It may not seem like it to you, but I have given you more than you needed. 

You are to give this overflow and excess to those around you that do not have a pure and holy fountain of living water springing up from within them.

Come to Me and receive all you need today and watch as this fountain springs up anew within you. 

Those around you are so in need of what you have and may not even know it. Sometimes you forget and get dry and thirsty because you do not come to Me.  

I have all you need and more to give out if you will come to Me and receive it. I love you and love the time you give to Me. You are blessed for you are My child!!!

John 7:37-38 On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

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. 

New… Times Infinity

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. I am beginning to do a great work in the here and now. 

My people, those called and chosen by Me, are beginning to arise and take their place in the Kingdom.  My people are stepping out in obedience and leaving behind the comfortable and familiar. 

Their are new places, new revelations, and new levels to be discovered as you follow Me.  

Do not let the comforts and entertainment of this world seduce you into giving up the destiny I have given you or missing out on the eternal inheritance I have for you.  

There is always more in Me!!! If you are bored or disinterested it is because you need to discover Me in a new way.  The angels are still crying “Holy” and bowing before me, and they have seen something new every time they look.  

You want new adventure, new life, new excitement, new purpose…? Come to Me, and I will reveal the infinity of new and exciting in My Kingdom!!!

1 Corinthians 2:9-10 But as it is written:“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

Here are my Notes: Simple Discipleship Week 4

Here is the Audio Sermon: Prayer and Fasting

fasting and prayer

As we begin to look at prayer and fasting, we must first ask two important questions:

What is Prayer?

What is Fasting?

In studying this topic, my definition of prayer would be inviting God into our lives and situations by bringing things to Him.  

We are encouraged to pray without ceasing.  We are not supposed to go around with our eyes closed and heads bowed all the time, but wherever we go and whatever we are doing, we are to be in constant communication with God inviting Him into our situations and surroundings and making Him a part of our everyday activities.

In coming to understand more about it, my definition of fasting is giving up legitimate pleasures as a sacrifice to gain breakthrough and a deepening relationship with the Lord.  

God has given us necessary things, and it is the blessing of the Lord to us for them to be good.  However, in talking about sacrifice, we saw that we were to give up something important to us to gain a deeper relationship with God.  Fasting is a sacrifice of something that we  enjoy (Food, Entertainment, Sleep…) so that we get breakthrough and walk into a deeper communion with the Lord.

Fasting always works together with prayer.  Everywhere that fasting is mentioned it is in combination with prayer.  Fasting without prayer is just dieting.  The point of fasting is to give up a legitimate pleasure and use the extra time that we have to spend praying.


In Daniel 10, in is clearly evident that as Daniel was praying and fasting, he was empowering God’s spiritual forces to bring about change.  Something happens as we fast in conjunction with prayer that empowers heavenly forces to win spiritual battles.  As a result of this, Daniel was strengthened, encouraged, and given answers that he was seeking.  You have the ability to empower heavenly forces to win spiritual victories through fasting and prayer!!!

In Isaiah 58, it is even more evident that fasting with the wrong motives and wrong heart is no good and not even accepted by God.  As we fast, God brings revelation to us and we then have the choice whether to repent and be obedient or to ignore the revelation.  When we ignore what God is saying, our fasting and praying is not powerful or effective but our hearts become increasingly hardened to the voice of God.  Fasting and prayer is powerful when we repent and walk in obedience to the revelation of the Lord.

Look at a few of the benefits of the right type of fasting and praying from v. 12.  God is able to build where there was once destruction.  The enemy is constantly trying to bring destruction in our lives, but through fasting and prayer, God is able to build something that lasts on top of this destruction.  God strengthens our foundations, revitalizes our spiritual heritage for us to pass on in greater measures to our children, fortifies our defenses and clarifies our paths.  This is the kind of fasting and prayer that I want to be a part of!!!


In Matthew 6, we come to find the importance of not being religious.  In regards to both prayer and fasting, Jesus mentions the secret place.  The thoughts and intentions of our heart is what God judges so we should never do these things out of obligation or for other people to be proud of us.  We should have a genuine desire to grow closer to the Lord and out of that heart in the secret place, God is able to give spiritual treasures.  I would rather be rewarded by God rather than men any day!!!  

It is also important to realize that the prayer and fasting that we do right now affects eternity.  When we are in heaven, there will be no need to pray or fast because we will be partying with Jesus face to face.  Right now, we have the unique ability to affect eternity with our pure prayer and holy fasting!!!

In Habakkuk 2, we find out that it does not matter how you pray, but that you are actually communicating with God.  The prophet says clearly that he was waiting to be corrected.  Habakkuk’s prayers would raw and filled with emotion.  He did not come with proper words and civilized emotions.  He came as he was and expressed himself honestly and was willing to repent and be corrected.  

We also find the importance of prophetic revelation or vision.  Revelation from God gives us tiny glimpses into our God-sized destiny and this compels us to align ourselves with Him and move more into it.  As we write these things down, it is an encouragement to us when it takes longer to get here than we want (which is 99.99% of the time), an encouragement to others when it does finally come about, and a testimony to the glory and faithfulness of God.

The most important lesson from Mark 9 and Matthew 17 is that in the middle of our hopeless situations that we do not feel as if we can pray or have the faith to pray for complete deliverance and healing, we pray for the grace to overcome our doubt and for God to strengthen our faith.

I encourage you to pray and ask Holy Spirit to bring revelation as you meditate on these questions:

What am I praying for right now?

What are the things I have given up praying for?

Is my secret place worthy of being rewarded?

What has God revealed and called me to that I am not being obedient or repentant to?

What legitimate pleasure am I willing to give up that I might receive a spiritual breakthrough in myself and the lives of others and be launched into a deeper communion with the Lord?

fat and pray

I pray even now that God would give us all hungry hearts to know Him in deeper and mightier ways than ever before.  Help us all to repent of the things which you reveal in our hearts and surrender to walk in full obedience to what He is calling us to.  May our secret places be worthy of reward, and may God bring forth mighty spiritual rewards because of our faithfulness and perseverance in the secret place.

I would like to encourage you to pray and give something up in fasting so that you are able to step into a deeper walk with the Lord and that greater spiritual breakthrough would come in your life!!!
