Pure Unblocked Relationship

Daily Encouragement –

I love you My child. You are the one I want to be closer to than ever before. Come to Me and receive all that you need today. 

I am filling you to overflowing. I am showing you great and mighty things. Your ears are hearing the mysteries of the Kingdom.  How can it make sense that the Creator of the universe loves you enough to die for you?

 I did this so I could have pure unblocked relationship with you. My side is clear of all obstacles. Now, it is time to remove the roadblocks from your side. Take the fear, worry, troubles, and sin and give it all to Me. Remove the doubt, pride, selfishness and let it be burned up in the fire of My love!

I will come as close as you want Me to. I will reveal as much as you want to be obedient to. I will share as much as you are willing to put into use and share with others. Use it all for My glory and pass it on! I love you 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.” 

John 15:5, 16 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. 

1 John 2:6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

Follow Me

Day 4 – Follow Me

Key Verse – 
John 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” 

“Just follow me, I’ll take you there.” Your friend says this, climbs into their car and the race is on.  Desperately you try to keep up with the speeding vehicle in front of you. You don’t want to lose him because your phone is out of battery and you forgot your charger.  You have no way to get to your destination except by keeping up with your speed demon friend.  

In a situation like this, you might be worried that it could be dangerous to try to keep up with your friend or that they might lose you in traffic. This is something you never have to worry about when following Jesus.  He is always with you, and when He calls the you to follow Him, He walks right with you making sure you know which way to go.  

Do you feel like you are walking in darkness in some area of your life?

Are you lacking hope or see no end to your troubles?  

When you follow Jesus, He promises that He is with you and that you have the light of life.  No matter how dark or hopeless it may seem, Jesus is with you to help you.  If you will follow Him, He will lead you into life, light, hope, and so much more!

Prayer – Jesus, help me to see past the darkness and trouble around me and look to you.  Help me to follow you no matter what life brings. Help me to follow you and know that I have you, all the light, life, and hope I will ever need. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Challenge –
Ask Holy Spirit what is the next step you need to take to follow Him.  Often, you will already know what you need to do.  Write it down and decide to do it. Ask a friend or leader to help remind you to take the action you are supposed to.  Step out and follow in action as soon as you are able.

Come to Me

Daily Encouragement –

Key Verse –
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 on over to my place, my family is having a barbecue!” I bet you would love an invitation like this.  Doesn’t you mouth just water in anticipation of a good ol’ Texas barbecue? Imagine arriving at their house expecting brisket, burgers, hot dogs, or steak only to find they are barbecuing vegetables because the family is on a diet. What a let-down that would be.

As much as you need or desire food, there is a greater need that you have that has much more importance. Since the day you were born, you began to die. There is no escaping death. Major downer huh?  

Knowing you are trapped with no way out Jesus says “Come to Me”. “Come to Me and lay down your sin, shame, and brokenness. The world has only empty promises that leave you thirsting for more. Come to Me and be eternally filled and satisfied. I paid the price with My blood for you to be saved, healed, and set free. Come to Me”

Jesus offers you exactly what you need right where you are. Even as He is calling “come to Me”

Will you accept the invitation? 
Will you bring your problems, cares, worries, sin, shame, brokenness, and more to Him again and again?
Will you walk in the freedom, healing, and life Jesus offers?

Prayer – Jesus, help me to accept your invitation and come to you bringing all my baggage. Help me to lay it at your feet and take up the freedom, healing and life You have for me, in Your name, Amen.

Challenge – Write down everything that keeps you from accepting the invitation to come to Jesus today. Pray and ask God to help you bring these things to the altar and lay them at His feet. Do it today!!! Do whatever it takes to step into the freedom and life God has waiting for you.

Made Righteous

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. Do you know the gift I have given you in repentance? Through the blood of Jesus, you have the opportunity to be set free, cleansed, restored, and made right before Me. 

Though your sin is dark and disgusting, Jesus’ blood made the way for you to be fully righteous before Me. This is the starting place for the atmosphere of revival to rule and reign. 

The power of Holy Spirit within you is held back by unclean and unrighteous vessels. Even a little impurity holds back the fullness of what I want to do. 

Come to Me and confess, and I will forgive and cleanse you fully. Then, the full power of Holy Spirit will be made ready and available. 

Ask for it, and you will receive more than you ever thought possible because that is who I am. I love you My child!!!

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 

Luke 11:9-13 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 
10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 
11 If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? 
12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 
13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!” 

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Overflow

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.”

Pure Heart

Daily Encouragement – 

My child, I love you!!! Always remember, I am your Strength and Shield. I am here to help you stand up under all the pressures of this world and give you the ability to grow and become strong.

Troubles will come upon you while you live in this world. I have overcome these things, and you are an overcomer made in My image.

Be watchful that the things of this world do not overwhelm your heart. Guard your heart from being overtaken, because if it is, you are finished with what you can do for Me.

Purify your heart in Me daily. Bring your heart, present it to me and receive the words that purify. 

Follow Me into continually cleansing and keeping your heart pure that your life does not just look good to others. Everything must spring up from being rooted in a pure heart and so bring forth good fruit. I love you My child!!!
Proverbs 4:23 Keep your heart with all diligence,For out of it spring the issues of life. 

John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” 

1 John 5:4-5 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

Multiply The Effect

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. You have no idea how much joy I have to see you and spend time with you. 

You can do so many good things for me, but My primary desire is to be with you and have your heart.  

This world has many troubles, distractions, and all kinds of worries that the enemy will try to use to take your eyes off of Me. There will always be another thing to think about, something that needs done, ministry to do…

What you do not have more of is time and energy.  Your time on this earth is limited, and I want you to make the most of it. Your energy and effort is limited. 

How can you be most effective? How can you do the greatest good? 

Come and give your time and energy to Me first, and I will multiply it.  Partner with Me, and I will give you new energy, new life, and new ways to be efficient and effective in all you do. I will give wisdom, revelation, and the ability to walk faithfully in what I am calling you to. 

You can be all you can be only when you partner with the Greatest One that will ever be!!! I love you My child!!!

John 15:4-5 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 

Matthew 11:28-30 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
