When War Rises Against You Be Confident

You have been in a battle for a long time.
Be confident and trust in Me.
War has risen against you before and it shall
rise against you again.
Be confident and trust totally in Me.
I am your front end and your rear guard.
I am your God and your Father.
Be confident in this for I am the Lord.
I am your shelter, and I am your comforter.
I shall lead you and I shall guide you in times of
I will never leave My own.
Do not leave Me but cleave to Me and hold on to Me
and do not let go.
In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.
Days of glory are going to come as it gets darker and
darker so shall be My light.
My light shall make your path bright though all be dark
around you.
I am the light on your path.
My light shall shine brighter and brighter as the day approaches.
Let the Day Star arise in your heart.
Be confident that I have begun a good work in you and will
continue it to the day you come home to be with Me.
Be confident, ask for fresh faith and courage and run
diligently the race that is yet before you.
It will soon be over and you will be safely home.

Scripture to Ponder

3 Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then will I be confident.
Psalm 27:3 (NIV)

Do Not Carry False Burdens

Praise Me for you are fearfully and wonderfully made.
You were made by Me and are precious to Me.
Many times My children go through so many trials that
they take their eyes off of Me.
Keep your eyes staid on Me.
Keep your eyes on the Lord your God.
I have brought you this far and will bring you the rest of the
Your journey is not yet complete.
Come closer to Me for it seems that the journey is long.
Come closer to Me and rest in Me for all that you need.
Do not carry extra burdens but carry that which I place in
your heart.
I am the burden bearer and I would not have you to carry
false burdens.
Lay it all at My feet and surrender all again to Me.
Release the burdens to Me, says the Lord.

Love One Another

We are growing together in love. God is maturing us and
teaching us that we must love one another. How do we do
this when we are part of such a big family? We need wisdom
and knowledge to know how to respond to one other.
Each member is at a different place in the body of Christ.
Each member is not at the same place in the Lord as often some
are just saved and others have been walking with our Lord for
many years. How do we respond to what others say and do?

Are we always responding in love? Is there a way of saying something
in a kind way? What do we do when someone has a different opinion than
we do? We are not to accuse one another but love one another.
We were told that this is what would make us different. Do we have
love one for another? Do you have love for another? This is where the
rubber hits the road beloved. Are you walking in love today? Am I?
Let us choose the higher road. The narrow road that leads to live and
love one another as Christ loved His church.

Pray for one another and put a watch at the door of our heart and
a bit in our mouths. James mentions our tongue. We need to walk softly
before the Lord. We need to speak softly to one another. Our Words
need to be few. We need to allow the horses bit to be in our mouth.
God will use us as we allow His sweet presence to permeate our very
being. Speak softly, respond softly with words that lift up. Walk softly
before the Lord. God sanctify our tongues and let us be led of the Spirit
at all times. A friend loves at all times. Christ in us will help us to love
one another with a pure heart fervently. Ask the Lord that you will walk
in love toward your brother and sister’s today. By this shall men know
that you are Jesus disciple.

Scripture to Ponder

For we all stumble in many things.
If anyone does not stumble in word,
He is a perfect man, able to bridle the
whole body.
James 3:2 (NKJV)

Test And Try All Things

Do you know the voice of God?
Do you know when the Holy Spirit checks you?
There is that inner witness that tells you when things are right
and when they are wrong?
The Spirit will bear witness with your Spirit.
Do you at times have a nagging doubt.
It is not a nagging doubt but the Spirit of God speaking to
your heart.
Come close to Jesus.
You will know His voice.
Continue to press in and seek Him and wait on Him
until you know the truth.
You will know the truth and it will make you free.
Do not accept all that you hear even though the voices may be
Test and try all things until you know that they are of the Lord.
These are the last days beloved and the enemy is walking around
like a roaring lion with His lies, often mingled with truth.
Be discerning and alert and take heed and as you seek the
Lord He will open your heart to the truth of His Word.
God’s Word is truth.
Hunger for it, desire it more than life and the Spirit of God
will speak to you.
The Word says that in the last days many will depart from the faith
and give heed to seducing spirits. If possible even the very elect
could be fooled.
Listen carefully to what the Lord is saying to you and when in doubt
that it is God continue to press in and wait until you are sure that
it is the Lord speaking to you.
Jesus Christ is the Spirit of truth and will lead and guide you into all truth.

Bring Forth Fruit With Patience

Did I not say that a mans enemies would be those
of his own household.
Guard your soul.
Bring forth fruit with patience.
Do not allow the enemy to take your patience from
It is yet a little while.
Stand fast.
Guard that which I have commited to you and hold
on to your patience.
The enemy is walking like a roaring lion seeking whom
he may devour.
Do not let him devour you.
Let patience have its perfect work in your heart and
you will be perfect and standing in My perfect will.
Let Christ be perfected in you.

I Hold Your Life In My Hands

The enemy is seeking to distract at this time.
I am your peace and victory.
Keep your eyes staid on Me for I am the
author and finisher of your faith.
Do not keep your eyes on your situation but
keep your feet firmly planted in My Word.
Do not be discouraged but overcome each
obstacle through worship and praise one day
at a time. Leave tomorrow to Me and live for
this day only trusting in Me. Commit your
heart wholly to Me for I hold your life in My

I Will Renew Your Strength

I will give you renewed strength to fight this battle.
Come aside for refreshing.
You cannot continue on without this time of refreshing.
Set things aside and spend time with Me.
You will be refreshed. Stop struggling. Cease your work.
Rest in Me and you will find all you need.
Quit and rest at My feet today.
In quietness and confidence you will find strength.

He Must Increase And I Must Decrease

I will increase as you come into My presence.
You will decrease in My presence.
In My presence is fullness of joy. At My right
hand pleasures forevermore.
Do you want increase in your life?
Do you want to enter into the presence of the Lord?
Be willing to take up your cross daily and follow Me.
True repentance will bring My presence.
Enter into the joy of your Lord.

You Are That Overcomer

There are pressures building but there is peace
in the eye of the storm. The angel of the Lord
encamps around those that fear Him. Trust in
the Lord your God with all your heart and do not
lean to your own understanding. You cannot figure
it all out but you can trust that I am there standing
with you each and every day. Be confident, trusting
and always abounding in My work. I have My eye
on you and overcame the storms of life. You too are
that overcomer that walks with Me in white. Fear not.

Storm Clouds

The other afternoon as I looked heavenward I saw a group of clouds all blended together. In between I saw a little space of light colored sky. I saw storm clouds all around and a small space left for man to repent of His sin. The Lord is saying it is time to repent of sin and walk before Him with new fervor.

Put aside the sin that so easily besets you and run this race with fresh zeal. You have not yet completed the race before you and need to press in and go forward with new life flowing through you. Its time to get into the Word of God and begin to seek Him while He may be found.

Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart tonight and asking you why you are too busy to spend time with Him? What is holding you back? Put it aside and go forward and by His grace go forward one day at a time. Pray for the Nations and the Nations of the earth.
Time is short and there are storm clouds on the horizon that can only be dispersed through intercession.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14)

Whatever He says to you to do, do it with all of your heart.

The Burden of the Lord

I see your tears and hear your anguish,
I see the pain you feel.
You are carrying the prophet’s burden and it is the
burden of the Lord.
It is My burden for My people and the weight is
You do not always realize what you are carrying but
the weight you carry is the weight of man’s sin as seen
in My eyes.
My heart is heavy for My people who fight against Me.
My heart is heavy for those that do not hear.
My heart is heavy for those that will not bend
their will towards mine and that find more pleasure in earthly
The things of this world draw man and glitter, but it is fools
gold and not the real thing.
Man is deceived and does not know My heart.
My heart is broken over all that I see and you are feeling
but a portion that I am allowing you to carry.
Increase will be given when increase can be handled.
Know the Father’s heart.
I am burdened, for I would spare my children so much and
yet they do not see, hear or understand.
I am grieved and the grieving you are feeling is the burden
of My Holy Spirit rising within you with tears and a sense
of a heart that is broken.
The weeping is the weeping of My Spirit that is pouring out
through you and your tears are bottled in heaven.
Persist on your face before and know my love is melting any
hardness of heart in others as you weep before Me.
My tenderness is surfacing in you and your heart is being
broken for My purposes.
Continue to be broken before Me.
Bend your heart beloved and weep before Me in the presence
of your enemies.
Weep beloved weep for joy will come in the morning.

Do Not Keep Silent

They will not listen nor will they hear.
Though I use you to warn them their hearts are
hardened through the deceitfulness of their sin.
The ramifications are great.
Storm clouds are on the horizon.
The darkness is at the door.
Yet eyes do not want to open and remove the
slumber from their eyes.
Open your eyes you silent ones.
Do not keep silent but speak and say what the Lord
is saying.
Do not keep silent but speak.
The time is near so much nearer than you realize
and hearts are hardened and wandering away.
The enemy is working to snatch away all that he
can for he knows his time is short.
No longer will you keep silent but speak the truth
in love.
No longer will you come out with those words that
will minister to the heart but not totally transform
lives. I will give you words that prick the conscience
and words that will turn man to Me. He will make
the decision to follow Me. It will be a sharp word
and a cutting word but it is time that man heard the
truth about their plight.
The day is here and the truth needs to be revealed.
Eternal life and eternal death are being faced by many
and choices made now will affect man for all eternity.
Men and women need to get off the fence.
Either they are in the world or in the Kingdom.
You can no longer keep silent as you see men walking
like fools to their demise. Speak the word of the Lord
and let My Words fall where they will fall. Pray for the
soil to be prepared and pray for those that come into the
Kingdom that their roots will grow deep in Me. Then teach
them to go and do likewise. Man has been coddled for too
long with a prosperity gospel. It is a gospel, the gospel of
Christ that will cost everything to follow Me. If that is
preached then pocketbooks would not be filled to the same
extent and so man is conscious of how he preaches. It is
time that the truth is preached and that it preached in an
uncompromising way. The truth of My Word is that the
gospel will cost you everything if you are fervent for Me.
Are you prepared to pay the price? Is My church prepared
to pay the price to walk the walk of obedience. Obedience
is what I am looking for. Total obedience. Partial obedience
is not obedience for how can you be partially listening to your
parent and have praise. No, it is not the praise of men that
will satisfy but the praise of your Father in Heaven. Seek for
My praise alone. The just will live by faith and I will renew your
faith so that you soar like the eagles. Rejoice in Me. You are
free to speak and be all I would have you to be. Spread your
wings and fly for from this day your food shall be food that is
meat that shall sustain and satisfy.

Win That One Person

I came to open the prison doors to those that are bound.
I will use you to open the doors for that one.
I came to seek and save those that are lost.
Allow Me to use you to win that one and then another
and another.
I am the good shepherd and gave My life for the sheep.
Go and do likewise for He that wins souls is wise.

For the Son of Man has come
to save that which was lost.
Matthew 18:11 (NKJV)

Thursday, April 10, 2008

Wait on the Lord

Time has come to wait in My presence.
Time has come to sit at My feet.
Time has come to hear Me at a new level.
The time is here and I am speaking.
Hear My voice for obedience is better than
Obey My voice.

Christ in You

My Kingdom is within you.
My power is in you.
All that you have need of lies in you.
It is Christ in you the hope of Glory.
Worship Me.
Praise Me.
Allow My Spirit to rise within you.
Expect to see Me move as you worship and praise
Worship Me in Spirit and in truth.
I am truth and I am life and I
live in you.

To them God willed to make known
what are the riches of the glory of
this mystery among the Gentiles;
which is Christ in you, the hope of
glory. Colossians 1:27 (NKJV)

Strategic Warfare

You have now come to the place where you are
going to need to face your enemy head on. No
longer can you get by in the same way that
you did yesterday. You are going to need to
come against the foe in the exact way that I
show you how to fight to gain victory over him.
You need to destroy the works of darkness that
have come and are working to destroy you. You
have been given the name of Jesus to combat him.
Take My name and cut a path through for it is
My territory not his. Send the enemy running
for cover as you pray in the Spirit and combat
Him. Go after the specific targets that I will
show you and walk in the victory for you are
more than a conqueror through Christ who loves

God Will Do It

Faith says, God will do it. The enemy has said
“what if God does not do it”. I say to you that
I will do what I have promised and the Words
that I have spoken I will fulfill. I will
fulfill My Word. Do not doubt My Word or the
leading of Holy Spirit but believe Me for My
Word’s sake. Believe Me and do not doubt but
trust that what I have spoken I will fulfill
in your life.

Pray for the Heart of an Intercessor

My Word is a sword that cuts between the soul
and the spirit. My Word cuts deeply into your
heart and reveals the thoughts and intents of
your heart. Will you allow Me to reveal your
heart to you for in seeing your heart as I see
it you will desire change. I am willing to
take your heart and soften it and tenderize
it and make it the heart of an intercessor in
My hands. I can do wonders with one intercessor
that is totally pliable in My hands. One that
will move when I say move, stop when I say stop.
One that will rise in the night hours even
when it is not comfortable to do so. I will
give you the heart of the true intercessor. An
intercessors heart will be broken for My
purposes and poured out. Allow Me to break your
heart and pour you out. Pray for the intercessors
heart for it is the heart of the Father.

My Word Holds the Keys

My Word is a sword.
Take My sword and use it against the enemy.
You know how to use My sword but sometimes My
warriors relax and this is not a time to be
lax but to cut through all that is coming
against you. Wage this war wisely and win.
I have given to you the full armor of My Word.
My Word holds all the keys of the kingdom and
every answer that you need. Seek and you shall
find, knock and it will be opened to you. The
answers are all there at your fingertips. Turn
the pages of My Word and find them. You will find
Me when you seek Me with your whole heart
