Are You Needy?

Daily Encouragement –

What do you need today? How do you plan on getting through this week, month, year? What are you trusting in? Do you trust your might, your resources, yourself? 

Pride is you trusting in you and your way. Pride tells you that you can make it by working harder, getting more education, making more money… These things are not bad, but trusting in them is pride. 

Do you realize you need Me? A basic acknowledgement and belief in Me is required for salvation. However, you must learn to rely on Me every single day to excel in life. Pride says you can get through because of something of yourself, what you have said or done. 

You need Me! You need to trust Me! As you trust Me, I will bring everything you need to be fully blessed. If you learn to trust Me as much as you trust yourself, you will be unstoppable in The Kingdom! Come and trust Me today! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 49:4 Why do you boast… O backsliding daughter? Who trusted in her treasures, saying, ‘Who will come against me?’

V. 16 Your fierceness has deceived you, The pride of your heart…

Matthew 5:3 “Blessed [spiritually prosperous, happy, to be admired] are the poor in spirit [those devoid of spiritual arrogance, those who recognize their spiritual need], for theirs is the kingdom of heaven[both now and forever].

The Kingdom is Waiting for You!!!

Daily Encouragement –

Do you know Me? Do you know My ways? How much do you desire to enter into My Fullness? 

The things you desire most and are an expert in are things of the world. Entertainment, politics, fleshly desires… are where your mind and hand are focused. Your heart is being drawn away to evil because this is where your time is spent, far from Me. 

How much time have you spent in prayer, fasting, worship, The Word, seeking Me in contrast with the time spent watching TV, playing on Facebook, eating unnecessarily, making money, unholy passions…? As a result, you have become an expert at useless things and do not know Me, do not have My heart or My desires, and have not entered the fullness of My Kingdom. 

It is time for a change! Come to Me! Know Me! I will lead you into My will and My ways! The fullness is waiting on you to enter in and live there. The Kingdom is waiting for you!!! I love you My child!!! 

Jeremiah 4:22 “For My people are foolish, They have not known Me.
They are silly children, And they have no understanding. They are wise to do evil, But to do good they have no knowledge.”

True Comfort

Daily Encouragement – 

I am here!!! I am with you!!! No matter what may be going on in your life or around you, I am here to comfort and protect you. 

Know this! My comfort may not be comfortable at first, and it will not be pleasant to your flesh. My comfort comes as I correct your ways, what you do, say, and think. As I reveal Myself and the strength and power of My hand, you must come into line with Me. 

A good protector cannot be weak in mind or body. Do not worry; I am neither. Because of this, I cannot leave you to wallow in false comforts that lead to death. I must guide you, by My strength and love, to the place of true comfort.

Come close to Me!!! Press in to receive the fullness of comfort and protection I have and desire to give you!!! The closer you are to Me, the more I am able to love and protect you. Come close to Me, My Child!!! I love you!!!

Isaiah 40:10-11“Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him.
11 He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry them in His bosom, And gently lead those who are with young.”

Seek & Find

Daily Encouragement –

What are you seeking? Whom are you really seeking? Are you looking for a sign? A wonder? Or just to please yourself? Too many times, you are seeking the wrong thing or the wrong person. If you search hard enough, you will always find what you are looking for, but what are you really looking for?

Do not search for the living among the dead!!! You may fool yourself or be deceived into looking to things of this world for life. I assure you; there is only death in them. Whom are you seeking? 

If you are looking for the author of life, do not look the way of the world. Destroy any self-seeking in yourself, and look to Me for all the life you will ever need. Life eternal. I have so much waiting for you to search out. 

Seek Me! Draw near to Me! Press in to Me, and receive My life eternal right now!!! I love you My child!!!

Luke 24:5 “Why do you seek the living among the dead?”

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.

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

I Choose You

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child! I have shown and will continue to reveal to you areas of need all around. There will always be an abundance of need, but the things I show you and place on your heart are where I am calling you to minister.

My heart is for every need to be met, and every person to be touched with My love, healed, set free, and restored to life. You are the one I will use to do this. 

As you come close to Me you will gain My heart and My desire. Holy Spirit will give the strength and determination to do it as well as the perseverance to continue to matter the circumstances. Everything you need can be found it Me and comes from Me.

Come to Me, receive all you need, and carry out what those you are ministering to need. I have done the hard work, am doing it, and will continue to do so. Come to Me and gain all you need for the mission I have called you to.

Matthew 11:27-30 All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. 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.”

The Importance of the One

As our time in Norway draws closer and closer to an end, God has been speaking to me more and more about the importance of the One.  When we set out on this faith journey a month and a half ago, I thought it would look remarkably different than it has.  The majority of our time so far has been encouraging and strengthening individuals in an intimate setting.  We have been so privileged to encourage and build up Kjetil, his roommate Simon, his parents, and another couple that is a part of a small house church here.  Besides this, just sharing with the people we meet at different gatherings and settings seems to be how God is using us.

I have been feeling a little discouraged on and off that we have not had opportunities to speak to any churches or ministries so far.  In discussing this with my wife, she unleashed some powerful revelation and wisdom upon me, that I knew, but needed to be reminded of at that moment.  When we are ministering, encouraging, and strengthening individuals, this is building the church.  Each person is a vital and integral part of the church and every effort we make to strengthen and encourage them is making a difference in the church and the Kingdom of God is being built up.

My wife’s wise words reminded me of some ponderings of the past.  One of the first things I think of is a quote that was said to the famous D.L. Moody by a very little known friend of his.  Henry Varley, during conversation in a park, said to D.L. Moody, “The world has yet to see what God will do with and for and through and in and by the man who is fully consecrated to Him.”  After dwelling on this word for a short time, Moody’s response was, “I will try my utmost to be that man.”  Moody went on to be one of the most influential preachers in the U.S. and U.K. of his time.  This one man was changed by one comment, and millions of people were saved because of it.

What would happen in our time, if our attitude was the same? What if two or ten or 1,000 people stood up and said that we will be fully consecrated and obedient to the Lord to the best of our abilities?  Looking on all the revivals, movements, and godly happenings of the past, they can all be traced back to one man’s decision to follow the Lord completely.  Any organization, company, or business has one man that they say founded this company.  This man of vision, perseverance, and hard work gathered people around him to make the dream come true.  Loren Cunnigham and YWAM, Reinhard Bonnke and African Crusades, Billy Graham and U.S. Crusades, Bill Johnson and Bethel, Mike Bickle and IHOP, Lou Engle and The Call, Heidi Baker and Iris Ministries, Sean Feucht and The Burn 24-7, Stephen Evans and the Central American Crusades, Jack Hayford and The Church on the Way… these are just some of the well known people of our time who decided to be completely consecrated and  obedient to the Lord.  Each of these people in their own way have made a difference.  This does not even say anything about the people of the past who stood up no matter what the price to them in order that Jesus’ name would be glorified in and through them.

My challenge to you is that you would think about this statement, “The world has yet to see what God will do with YOU, for YOU, through YOU, in YOU, and by YOU if YOU are fully consecrated to Him!”  The world needs what you, completely consecrated and obedient to God, have to offer.  Really think about this and what your decision will be.  If you do not choose to be this kind of man like Moody did, you are choosing to fade into the oblivion of cultural Christians and not become what God has created you to become, one who turns the world upside down (Acts 17:6).  You are created for greatness!!!  Whether you become great or not depends upon your decision whether to be completely consecrated and obedient!!!
