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…”

False Profits

Daily Encouragement –

Do you want to be profitable this year? Do you want to be a person of renown, praise, and glory? Do you want to be truly Mine? I want all these things for you and so much more! It may not always seem like I have your best interests at heart, but My way is always better than the way of the world. Follow Me!!!

So many have tried to walk following their own desires, fulfilling their own lusts, and doing whatever it takes to turn a profit. All these have fallen by the wayside. They have all come to nothing. They may have seemed to profit for a time, but they cannot have anything of real value if they have not followed Me. 

What I have to give is profit for all eternity, not just a century or two. I am continually calling you to follow Me into The Eternal Kingdom and profit together with all I want to give. You must follow Me or you can profit nothing! I love you My child!!! Follow Me!!!

Jeremiah 13:10-11“This evil people, who refuse to hear My words, who follow the dictates of their hearts, and walk after other gods to serve them and worship them, shall be just like this sash which is profitable for nothing. 11 For as the sash clings to the waist of a man, so I have caused the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah to cling to Me,’ says the Lord, ‘that they may become My people, for renown, for praise, and for glory; but they would not hear.’”

You Must Praise The Lord!!!

Daily Encouragement – 

Hallelujah!!! You must praise The Lord!!! You must give thanks to the Lord!!! My blessings are upon you for your complete good. 

In spite of all the things you have done and even though you do not deserve it, I am here ready to respond when you finally call for help. I will lift you up out of the pit, cleanse you completely, and make you strong if you will only cry out to Me for help. 

You cannot do it yourself no matter how hard you try. The enemy and the world are working together against you. Come close to Me and join Me!!! When you are on My side, you will never be defeated. Even if you struggle and fall, draw near to Me once again, and I will lift, revive, and restore you. 

I will perfect you body, mind, and soul as you press in to Me!!! You must praise and give thanks to The Lord!!! I love you My child!!! 

Psalm 138:1-3 I will give You thanks with all my heart; I sing praises to You before the [pagan] god. 
I will bow down [in worship] toward Your holy temple And give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word together with Your name.
On the day I called, You answered me; And You made me bold andconfident with [renewed] strength in my life.

Praise of Men or Command of God?

Daily Encouragement – 

I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life!!! Every part of Me is life to your body, heart, mind, and soul. My words are life.

Even My commands are life. Man’s commands are burdensome and impossible to keep because they change with each situation and are dependent on man’s emotions. Man commands and plans are always for selfish benefit. 

Yet, all too often, you desire to please men over Me. Why do you desire the approval and praise of men over Me? Man’s approval is unstable and ever changing with his moods and emotions. Why would you choose the praise of men over a Holy God whose very commands bring everlasting life to every part of you? 

Come to Me!!! Desire My approval! Line yourself up with My commands, and you will receive the everlasting benefits of life from Me!!! I love you My child!!!

John 12:42-43 “Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; 43 for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.”

John 12:49-50 “For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. 50 And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak.

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Stake in The Kingdom

Daily Encouragement –

 My child, you know that I love you. I love the way you seek to give Me honor and praise. You know that I am a Rewarder. It brings Me joy to pour out My blessings over you. 

My Kingdom is advancing. I want you to be a part and reap the reward as an heir. You have a stake in this Kingdom, and you should be pressing into it harder than anyone. 

It will take bold, decisive action in obedience to the Spirit to advance the Kingdom. You are not one to back down or give up, and you will not do that in My Kingdom. You will press forward and press through every obstacle, struggle, and enemy that would come against you.

Know this, even as you press through, your reward is not based on your success but on what you give up. What is your sacrifice? You are successful when you sacrifice your will and your desires to take up Mine for My Kingdom that I am giving to you. I love you My child!!!

Luke 18:29-30 So He said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the age to come eternal life.” 

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. 

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Shortcomings or Successes?

Daily Encouragement – 

My child, I love you. I see your heart and know you want to please Me. There may be many distractions, difficulties, and desires for other things, but the true you shines through it all. 

You bring joy to Me when you seek to follow Me fully. Even though you may struggle, I see you coming to Me, and it brings Me joy. Even through the struggles and difficulties, I see your desire to bring Me glory and love and trust Me with all things. 

You have done well, My child. You may measure yourself by your failures and shortcomings, but I look at your successes and praise you for continuing to walk with Me even when it is hard. Thank you for returning to Me when you have walked away and choosing again to stand with Me until the end. 

Keep it open, real, and raw. No falseness or religiosity is needed with Me. I know you so just be honest with Me. I love you My child.

Philippians 1:3-6 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;

Bold Abandonment: Newsletter #5

God is continuing to use us in different ways while here in Texas.  It may not be how we would have thought, but He is showing us even more how to praise Him in seasons of waiting.  As well as how to be faithful in not just doing the good works that benefit ourselves, but also stepping out into the Greater Works that Jesus talks about in John 14:12.  May you be blessed in reading about our faith journey with the Lord and encouraged to step into the Greater Works that marked Jesus and the Apostles!!! 🙂

In Christ,

Jeremiah and Katie
