Spiritual Alignment 16/40

You are invited to join us for The Propel Fast! Please review Propelled To The Next Level and other words for the reasons behind the fast as well as daily encouragement!

Patience, persistence, and perseverance are words we like to avoid.  We have moved past the need for longsuffering to patience because that is a nicer way to say it.  However, longsuffering is a much more descriptive term to what is taking place.  Whatever you happen to call it, it takes work to continue in the faith of believing for your breakthrough into the next level.  I encourage you to look to Jesus from Whom comes your help.  May you be long-prospering even as you move past longsuffering.

Every single one of us are walking through this life.  No one is exempt from the troubles and hardships the world has to bring.  I would love to tell you that as you seek the Lord, you become perfect and can live somewhere in a bubble of perfect communion with God that will take you out of the world and make everything okay.  This is not the case.  In fact Jesus said:

John 17:15I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.”

At one time, the followers of Christ thought to create a separate culture like a monastery or convent that was set apart from the world, but Jesus never meant for this to happen.  You are meant to be His shining light in the middle of a dark world that many may see His light shining through you and be drawn to Him by your words and actions.  The way you respond in the same negative situations that others are going through should be a testimony to the greatness and glory of God in you. 

Sadly, we often do not handle the circumstances of life much different than the people in the world.  Because of our weak humanity, we fall into complaining, pain, despair, and even the depression and darkness that plagues the world.  This happens because our flesh and soul have not yet come into line with The Holy Spirit yet.  It is a process to ‘work out our salvation”  that we may truly become one with Him.

The heroes of the faith did not have it any easier than we do, and we even have recorded many of David’s passionate prayers and cries for help as he was going through terrifying life ordeals.  From him, we discover a key to bringing our flesh and soul into line with God’s plans and purposes even in the middle of the daily struggles.

Psalm 69:10 When they see me seeking for more of you with weeping and fasting,
they all just scoff and scorn at my passion.

Vs. 13 But I keep calling out to you, Yahweh! I know you will bend down to listen to me,
for now is the season of favor. Because of your faithful love for me, your answer to my prayer will be my sure salvation.

David reveals a secret into aligning our flesh and soul with Holy Spirit that many would pass over.  He is seeking more of God with passionate prayer and fasting.  Even when others would make fun of him for it, he is persistent.  He continues on.  David has so much confidence that God will come through to help in the situation, he does not care what others may say about his “pitiful cries for help”.  Prayer and fasting cause our soul to come into line with Holy Spirit in a way that nothing else can.  Fasting reveals our flesh and the prayer helps us give those things that arise over to God in the correct way.  These two together help us to truly become longsuffering.  A transformation begins to happen within us that creates the ability to weather the storms of this life and even be a witness in the most tragic circumstances.  This process continues as we continually seek Jesus and are changed by Him.

Jesus, I need you today.  My flesh and soul are constantly trying to pull me into world ways and earthly thinking, but I desire to be like you.  As I pray and fast, strip off the ways of the world and help me come into perfect alignment with You and Holy Spirit.  Even in the trials and tragedies of life, help me to shine brightly who You are because I run to you quickly for help in my time of need.  Give me the ability to be a true longsuffering light in the darkness!

Practical –

  • Ask Holy Spirit to help you see where He is working
  • Ask for strength and assurance that He is with you
  • Live your life with the perseverance He brings
  • Shine the glory of God in the dark situations

Be blessed today to see the glory of The Lord in the land of the living.  Even in the intense darkness, may you know He is with you and shine brightly His glory as you are propelled into the next level with Him.

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.”

Treasures for the Taking

Word of the Lord- September 22, 2017

I am doing something new and unprecedented in the days to come. No eye has yet to see nor ear has yet to hear what I am preparing to do. There will be a quickening in the hearts of many like yet experienced. A quickening birthed from a place of expectancy and an urgency. 

Take heed of My Word and see how I bring it to pass. I have opened up doors that were previously locked and bolted closed, for the appointed time had yet come. Behind these doors are treasures that I have stored up for My faithful ones. They are new and have not yet been touched by any human hand. No human eye has laid hold of them. There are levels of miracles and provision awaiting the revealing of sons and daughters of God to lay hold of them. Now the time has come and I am opening up the doors and throwing away the keys. Access to these storehouses will be unlimited to those who seek My face in bold abandonment and fearlessness. 

Rise up My sons and daughters! Take hold of what I have reserved solely for you! Do not let these treasures lay to waste!

ISAIAH‬ ‭45:1-3‬ ‭AMP‬‬

“This is what the Lord says to His anointed, to Cyrus [king of Persia], whose right hand I have held to subdue nations before him, and I will ungird the loins of kings [disarming them]; to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut: “I will go before you and level the mountains; I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through the bars of iron.  I will give you the treasures of darkness [the hoarded treasures] and the hidden riches of secret places, so that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, Who calls you (Cyrus the Great) by your name.”

Always New!!!

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. I want you to know that there is so much more!!! I have so much more waiting for you if you will press in and take hold of it. 

There is more in My Kingdom and greater than you have ever experienced. There is always something new for you to discover and a new adventure for the now.

Continue to come close to Me so I can make you new. As I make you new and as you are transformed more and more into My image, you will be able to walk in new life and experience new depths of My Kingdom.  There is always something new and better in My Kingdom if you are willing to come to Me and walk in obedience.  

Intimacy with Me is the key for making these things possible. Time in My presence unlocks who you are even as you see Who I am.

Come to Me and receive all you need to walk in new adventure, new levels, and new life today!!!

Isaiah 43:18-21 “Do not remember the former things,Nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing,Now it shall spring forth;Shall you not know it?I will even make a road in the wildernessAnd rivers in the desert. The beast of the field will honor Me,The jackals and the ostriches,Because I give waters in the wildernessAnd rivers in the desert,To give drink to My people, My chosen. This people I have formed for Myself;They shall declare My praise. 

2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
