The Great Reward 2/40

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!

Keep up the good work! You can do it! Day 2 has in the past been my hardest day to overcome. It is helpful during these first three days of struggling, to overcome our flesh’s addictions, that we keep our eyes on the prize.

What is the prize?

What is the reward?

Hebrews 11:6 reminds us that God “is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

My own personal interpretation of this passage is that God will reward us as we seek Him even when we do not really want to. At this point in the fast, it is probably where we all are.

What is the reward?

The writer of Hebrews says later in Chapter 12 verse 2 that Jesus endured the cross because of the “...joy set before Him…

What is this joy?

What is it that will keep us going in the middle of this fast, but also the troubles of this life?

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 talks of the momentary light afflictions working for us an exceeding and eternal weight of glory.  That is what I want!

I desire the reward from The Father!

I crave the joy in the middle of the troubling times!

I am looking for the eternal weight of glory that I gain in the heavenlies as I give up a few things for a few days here on this earth. 

You! You were the joy that caused Jesus to endure the cross. Your soul was worth it!

Jesus! He is my reward! More of His presence! More communion with Him! Deeper relationship and knowing of The Creator of The Universe as my friend!

Souls! Family, friends, neighbors, and nations is what I am claiming for my heavenly inheritance and eternal reward!

Jesus, I thank You that You are my reward! I ask for an increasing eternal reward of family, friends, neighbors, and nations for You and Your Kingdom!!!

Practical – Write down the rewards you are looking for and review them when your soul needs to remember why you are fasting.

  • What reward do you hope to gain from this fast?
  • What are you claiming as your eternal inheritance?

Be blessed with the great reward from heaven as you are propelled into the next level!!!

What If?!?!

What if we really lived like God were the most important thing? 

What if our plan was to seek You first?

What if we really were a house of prayer for all nations?

What if we possessed the land You had given to us?

What if we did what we were designed to do?

What if we threw out the broken format?

What if we got rid of what was not working and sought to know You?

What if we trashed the gimmicks and sought to really know You?

What if You were our priority?

What if we really loved you with our whole heart?

What if we ordered our lives with You first?

What if we ordered our gatherings with You first?

What if we really acted like we needed you?

What if we really wanted you to show up?

What if we expected You to touch us?

What if You were the most important thing in our lives?

What if we lifted You up and watched as You drew all men to Yourself?

What if we fasted and prayed until You showed up?

What if???

What would happen???

John 12:32 (Jesus speaking) “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.” 

Matthew 6:33  (Jesus speaking) “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

Mark 12:29-30 Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.”

John 15:5  (Jesus speaking) “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.”

Luke 19:10 (Jesus speaking) for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

My Glory is Hidden…

Encouragement for Today –

Do you want to see a change in your life and the situations around you? Do you desire more than a meager existence? Do you hunger for more than you can see or know right now?

Come to Me!!! I am the King of Glory!!! I desire to come in and reveal all of Myself to you! Invite Me to come in like never before and open wide your heart to all of Me! 

My glory is hidden in the depths of My love!!! The closer you come to Me, the more you come to know, experience and walk in my love, the more My glory will be discovered and poured out in your life! This is what you really desire!!! I am more than you could ever see or know. 

Come to Me and discover anew My love. Ask Me for the wisdom and revelation to know it. Ask Me for strength to walk in this infinite love. As you do, you will discover new depths of My glory unseen!!! I love you My child!!!

Psalm 24:7-10 “Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory?
The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah

Loose Lips or Holy Heart

Daily Encouragement – 

What is coming out of your mouth? What is coming out of your heart? Does what you are saying line up with what you are doing? What are your actions revealing? Do you really know Me? 

Here I am! Come to Me! You do not have to keep yourself at a distance any longer. I will love you, and I will teach you all you need to know if you come to Me!  

I will change your heart! I will cause you to know Me not just in word but action. Come and honor Me with all your heart! Give yourself to Me completely again today and watch what I will do. 

Come and experience My love! Come and know Me really and truly! All the rules and regulations of man cannot bring you into deeper relationship with Me. 

Come and know Me and My heart, and all the desires for other things will melt away even as your hunger and thirst for Me increases! I love you My child!!! 

Isaiah 29:13-14 “Therefore the Lord said: “Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths And honor Me with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men, 
Therefore, behold, I will again do a marvelous work Among this people, A marvelous work and a wonder…”

Master of Eternal Destiny

Daily Encouragement – 

Who are you really? How do you present yourself to others? Are you the master of your own destiny? How is that working out for you? 

I am the Lord your Maker! I have created you and allow you to exist! I am the Master of your perfect destiny! Anything you try to do in your own strength is, at best, temporarily satisfying. I have made you for specific plans and purposes, and you can never be truly happy until you are walking in your perfect destiny. 

You will never know, walk in, or be able to continue in the way unless you come and know Me!!! Come to Me! Know Me! Be obedient to all I am calling you to. My way is not only the best way, it is the blessed way, and the only way to walk into your eternal destiny!!! This is My desire for you. 

Come to Me and let’s walk together into your eternal destiny! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 22:11-13 “…you did not look to its Maker, Nor did you have respect for Him who fashioned it long ago. 
12 And in that day the Lord God of hosts Called for weeping and for mourning, For baldness and for girding with sackcloth. 
13 But instead, joy and gladness, Slaying oxen and killing sheep, Eating meat and drinking wine: “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!”

It’s My Way…

Daily Encouragement –

Are you satisfied with life? Do you have all you need? Are you walking so you will not stumble and fall? Do you really know Me? 

Sadly, at some point, or at many points, you will choose to walk in your own way. If you are walking in your own way, you will become dissatisfied, needy, you will begin to falter, and feel alone. This is a miserable existence, and I do not want this to be the story of your life or even a chapter in it. 

Come to Me! Return to Me! Acknowledge the foolishness of your own way, and walk with Me! 

Walking with Me, you will have all you need, and I am walking with you to help you. I am here to satisfy the deepest longing of your heart. I am close and will reveal all of Who I am so we will grow in relationship together. 

I am willing! I am ready! I am waiting for you! Come to Me! Come closer! Let’s walk together! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 31:9 “They shall come with weeping, And with supplications I will lead them. I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters, in a straight way in which they shall not stumble; For I am a Father…”

V. 18-19 “… Restore me, and I will return, For You are the Lord my God. Surely, after my turning, I repented; And after I was instructed, I struck myself on the thigh; I was ashamed, yes, even humiliated, Because I bore the reproach of my youth.’”

V. 33-34 “But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

Bored, Bored,Bored…

Daily Encouragement –

Are you bored? Do you feel like you are just wasting time until something better comes along? Too much time and too little to do? Be careful that you do not get a dull and lifeless heart.

Dull hearts come from not knowing Me and lead to not seeking Me. All the idols of this world seek to fatten your heart and desensitize you to the things that really matter. Just as an abundance of good food will make you fat and sluggish, so an abundance of this world will make you dull-hearted.

Come to Me! I am an all-consuming fire!!! Unpredictable and uncontrollable, I will burn away all of the unclean things and make you full of life, energy, and love once again! 

Come to Me, the Living, Everlasting King of the nations. Become one with Me, the Everlasting Flame, and watch the boredom and dullness melt away. You will become like Me as you seek and know Me!!! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 10:21, 14, 10.
For the shepherds have become dull-hearted,And have not sought the Lord; Therefore they shall not prosper, And all their flocks shall be scattered.
Everyone is dull-hearted, without knowledge…
But the Lord is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King…
