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.

What is Best?

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. All hope is found in Me. Put your faith in Me and watch what I will do. It may not happen when or how you think it should, and in fact, it probably will not. My ways are not your ways, and I always know what is best.

You bring joy to Me as you stand up for Me and seek to advance My Kingdom. There is so much I have for you to do. Come near to Me, and I will reveal the next step for you to take to walk into your destiny. 

Do not worry. You will not have to do it on your own, and you cannot. I am with you. Holy Spirit will guide you, and give you the strength, power, and life to carry out all I have for you. 

You have a very special purpose. Come close to Me, and I will help you walk into it. I want the very best for you, and I will make it happen as you walk with Me day by day. I love you My child!!!

Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. 

Isaiah 55:8-9 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways,And My thoughts than your thoughts. 

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.

Treasure The Kingdom

Daily Encouragement –

I love you My child! It is time to take hold of The Kingdom. I have prepared it for you, My heir, to take hold of and run. I need you to steward it and advance what I have been doing so that others may benefit from it. Everything you do will help not only you and your family, but My Body as well. 

As My Kingdom grows, more of My life, strength, and blessing is able to be revealed to you. As you see and know, this revelation will be broadcast for others to receive as well. 

I cannot do the seeking for you. I cannot ask in your place. I cannot make you knock on the closed doors I am eager to open for you. 

You must press in and do your part because you understand and treasure the Kingdom I have given you. If you truly knew the value of the Kingdom, you would never cease to ask for it or stop seeking it out. You must never get fooled by the cheap alternatives, but value My Kingdom above all else!!! I love you my Child!!!

Matthew 13:44-46

Time to Take Part

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. I am ready for you to join with Me on an adventure. The more you see Me, know Me, and your heart is changed to Mine, the more you will be able to walk in the adventure of the Kingdom with Me.

You must speak and take action to take part in this adventure. The courage and strength to do this comes from Me. I am focused on advancing My Kingdom and helping every person become a part of this adventure. 

My Kingdom is life, love, hope, and freedom, to all who see it. Those who take part join the unstoppable force with Holy Spirit to see the Kingdom come in power. 

All must see and know who I am, and all the Kingdom has to offer. Life, love, hope, freedom, and more are here in My Kingdom. It is time to join with Me in the adventure of advancing My Kingdom!!! I love you My child.

Matthew 11:11-19 “Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 
12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. 
13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. 
14 And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who is to come. 
15 He who has ears to hear, let him hear! 
16 “But to what shall I liken this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to their companions, 
17 and saying:‘We played the flute for you,And you did not dance;We mourned to you,And you did not lament.’ 
18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’ 19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ But wisdom is justified by her children.” 

Ephesians 3:14-21 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 
16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 
17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 
18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 
19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 
20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 
21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

An Overflowing Outpouring

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child!!! Come and fill up in Me. I have everything you need today, and an abundance of blessing to pour out and overflow you. All this and more is just waiting for you to come and receive. 

Ask, and I will give it. Give it away, and I will give you more. Use everything I have placed in your life with an increasing effectivety so I may give you even more! 

I have an infinite supply of blessing and outpouring waiting for you to be able to receive it and steward it properly. I cannot give you more than you can handle. I cannot give you what you do not use for My glory. Either of these things would destroy you and cause you to walk away from Me. 

Steward what you have been given for My glory, and I will give you more. Come to Me and fill up on all the good things I have for you and for you to give out. I love you My child!!!

Matthew 7:7-11 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 
8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 
9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 
10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 
11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! 

Luke 6:38 Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

Searching the Secrets

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. I am beginning to pour an anointing over you that is not just for you but for all who want it. Others around you should see this anointing and press in and take hold of it themselves. I am giving an anointing of intimacy, deep close relationship, with me.

Draw near and come close and see what I will reveal to you My child, My friend. I want to reveal to you the secrets I have placed within you. I will reveal things you are to say and do, places you are to go, people you are to connect with in order to advance My Kingdom and so much more!!! 

The plans and purposes I have for your entire life are waiting for you to search them out. I reveal all these things and more to My closest friends. 

Come closer in this new anointing of intimacy and watch what I will reveal to you. You are My child, and I have given you The Kingdom. Come close to Me and discover the secrets of taking hold of your inheritance. I love you My child!

1 Corinthians 2:9-16 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. 
For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. 
These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 
But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

Better than Ice Cream!!!

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. I am doing great things in all the earth, and I want to make you a part of it. 

Right where you are, there is a need for action to be taken and My words of Truth to be spoken. You do not have to have a pulpit or an audience. Everyone needs to hear. 

You need to be like an ice cream truck arriving wherever you are. Continually share the words of Truth and Life. As you lift Me high, I will draw all men to Me.

What joy and good news you have to bring better than the fleeting pleasure of an ice cream you have to pay for yourself. I paid the ultimate price so everyone could have the good news for free. 

Do not hold back or keep My gift of good news to yourself. Broadcast it to everyone around you and share the good news that is free for all who will receive it. I love you My child.

Romans 10:14-17 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written:“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace,Who bring glad tidings of good things!” But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
