SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND

JANUARY 2015

January 1, 2015:  You can begin again with a clean slate.  Come before Me and release all things that have kept you from spiritual progression.  Choose to live life in the Spirit, and rise above the things of the world that weigh you down and keep you from all that I have for you.  Make good choices in your sowing and you will reap a good harvest, says the Lord.  Galatians 6:8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

January 2, 2015:  You have made good progress, but you must continue to press on until you have complete break-through.  Otherwise, you will find yourself slipping back into old patterns of thought and behavior and lose what you’ve gained.  Be diligent, and continue to seek My face for fresh revelation and spiritual insight.  Growth is a sure sign of life.  Stir up your desire and reach beyond where you are now.  You have much to give and much to do, but you must realize that accomplishment comes in small increments.  Consistent, small steps will result in covering a lot of ground.  Don’t get discouraged with what will seem like slow progress.  Just keep moving.  Leave past failures behind.  Do not dwell on the mistakes you have made or unpleasant outcomes.  You must not become a victim of regret; think about your experiences as opportunities to be strengthened in faith and to trust Me, says the Lord.  Micah 6:8 He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God? 

January 5, 2015:  You can accomplish extraordinary feats if you will just hunker down and set your heart on success.  Do not be deceived; it will not be easy.  The enemy of your soul will endeavor to hinder your momentum.  Use the authority I have given you to defeat his purposes and to do what I have set before you to do, says the Lord.  Luke 10:19 "Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you."

January 6, 2015:  There are still issues that need to be sorted out before you can break free from troubling circumstances, but on the whole you have come a long way and have accomplished a great deal.  Refuse to allow the last nagging details to steal your peace and keep you from strong faith in Me to show you what you must do next, says the Lord.  Onward and upward!  Isaiah 50:10 "Who among you fears the LORD? Who obeys the voice of His Servant? Who walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the name of the LORD and rely upon his God."

January 7, 2015:  Many of you, My people, have become disoriented because of extraordinary activity around you or in your own lives.  Sometimes it seems like you have become fragmented or separated from your spiritual convictions.  Now is the time to quiet yourself, reconnect with Me, and reactivate your faith, says the Lord.  When you do that, you will be able to access by faith the grace that you need to continue on with confidence that I am with you.  Romans 5:2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

January 8, 2015:  Take advantage of this time of new beginnings supported with abundant grace.  Think back and remember the times that I have rescued you, and know that I am not finished.  If I delivered you in the past, I will do so again.  Do not be afraid of the unknown nor fear failure, but put your complete trust in Me to lead, guide, direct and protect you, says the Lord.  Psalms 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

January 9, 2015:  I want you to prepare the way to find Me in earnest.  So many make a profession of faith, but never follow through to make a way for My wisdom, direction, teaching, and blessing.  There is a way for you to go that will not only set an example for others to live in righteousness, but to prepare a place for the great blessings and benefits of My kingdom, says the Lord.  The way must be clear and open.  Mark 1:3 "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the LORD; Make His paths straight.’"

January 12, 2015:  You must find the place of peace and strength in My presence regardless of the difficulties you face.  Refuse to give in to the temptation of discouragement and despair.  Some things are inevitable, but if you will trust Me to bring you through, your faith will rise to a level that the enemy of your soul cannot touch, says the Lord.  I will set your feet on higher ground where you can withstand any onslaught. Psalms 118:5 I called on the LORD in distress; the LORD answered me and set me in a broad place.

January 13, 2015:  In a vision I saw an old and completely dilapidated house.  The foundation was cracked the exterior siding was rotting, and it needed new windows and roofing.  The interior of the house was badly damaged and in need of repair.  I watched as the cracks in the foundation were filled in, and the exterior of the house, roof and windows were replaced.  In the interior, the wiring and  plumbing were repaired, the walls were replaced and painted, and the appliances were upgraded.  What was once condemned became a beautiful habitation.  And, the Lord said, "Behold, My House!" Ephesians 2:19-22 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

January 14, 2015:  Step out of the shadows and walk in the light.  Evil forces abound and seek to take advantage of any weakness.  I will give you wisdom and the discernment to know the difference between good and evil, says the Lord.  Do not be afraid.  Let Me lead you in the way of righteousness and peace, and I will keep you under the shelter of My wings.  Psalms 61:4 I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah

January 15, 2015:  Release yourself from the stigma of past failures and disappointments.  Refuse to see those things as being an embarrassment to you.  But, think of all things--difficult or not--as opportunities to see spiritual reality, to learn valuable lessons, and to know Me better, says the Lord.  Nothing is wasted in My Kingdom.  Everything that you encounter serves a purpose.  Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

January 16, 2015:  Take a close look, and you will see the flaws that could thwart your plans.  Incremental adjustments now will result in the changes necessary to achieve your goals, both spiritually and naturally.  Do not be afraid to find your own errors.  Error does not diminish your character, but gives a place for courage, humility, growth, and personal depth.  Seek Me for wisdom in all things, says the Lord.  Romans 5:3-4  And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.

January 19, 2015:  In your quest to find your people, those with whom you can feel connected, expect awkward moments.  Transparency is not your first choice, but you must develop relationship with others through trust and compatible values.  Your relationship with Me, says the Lord, is sacred and intimate.  And, it must be protected from those who would desecrate what is holy for the sake of their own desire for attention.  Matthew 7:6 "Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces."

January 20, 2015:  Regardless of what comes at you, I am with you to bring you through to clarity and victory.  Be strong and resolute, and refuse to allow fear or panic to take you out of the flow of My Spirit.  Take whatever time is necessary to quiet your thoughts and emotions, and then ask for wisdom about your next step, says the Lord.  I will show you the way.  James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

January 21, 2015:  Many of you, My people, are trying to force your will in certain situations to bring about the change necessary to achieve your desires.  But, you would do well to trust Me to bring about opportunities for change that will not only benefit you but those around you.  Everything done through selfish ambition will result in unrighteousness, says the Lord.  Allow Me to reveal the flow of My Spirit.  Galatians 5:19-21  Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

January 22, 2015:  Do not be hasty.  Take it slow and easy--one step at a time to avoid making mistakes that you will regret.  Evaluate every situation and be sure that your choices are correct before moving forward.  Deception of any kind can derail you and take you off course.  I will give you the ability to achieve a heightened state of awareness that will make things a lot easier if you will yield to My work in you, says the Lord.  Lean on Me and depend on the wisdom that I give you.  Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding.

January 23, 2015: In a vision, I saw someone walking on a path through a rich, green forest.  He had a leather pouch with a drawstring and was moving slowly and carefully looking for something along the path.  Then, I saw him picking up gemstones that became visible as he went.  There were diamonds, emeralds, rubies, and other kinds of gems that he put in his bag.  I believe that these are the hidden riches and treasures of darkness that God has spoken of.  They represent divine revelation revealed to us when we seek to understand.  Isaiah 45:3  I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches in secret places, that you may know that I, the LORD, Who call you by name, am the God of Israel.

January 26, 2015:  Don't give up!  The difficulties of recent days will pass, but you must press on.  Keep moving forward seeking Me for wisdom and guidance.  I will lead you through this valley of shadows and bring you into a place of peace and safety.  Trust Me in all circumstances, says the Lord, for I will lead you to victory.  2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

January 27, 2015:  Watch and be aware that the enemy will try to draw you into old traps.  The result of falling into the same trap over and over again will result in your inability to move forward as you encounter one dead end after another.  Now is the time to pay attention and to learn to avoid the first step that leads you down the wrong path, says the Lord.  Stay in the flow of My Spirit.  Ecclesiastes 9:12 For man also does not know his time: Like fish taken in a cruel net, like birds caught in a snare, so the sons of men are snared in an evil time, when it falls suddenly upon them.

January 28, 2015:  Nurture your sense of thanksgiving.  Deliberately develop a grateful heart, because in so doing you will open the door for greater blessings.  Grumbling and complaining will hinder the flow of good things in your life, says the Lord.  This, for some, will take considerable effort to establish new attitudes and patterns of behavior, but it will be well worth the hard work it takes to overcome negativity.  1 Timothy 6:6 Now godliness with contentment is great gain.

January 29, 2015:  You are embarking on a new phase of existence, and spiritual understanding is vital to your well-being.  If you will quiet your inside chatter and listen, I will give you wisdom and instruction.  You cannot hear My voice unless you take control of your thoughts and emotions.  I want to be able to lead, guide, direct and protect you, says the Lord.  Be calm and yield to My leading.  Psalms 131:2 Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.

January 30, 2015:  How can you rule and reign with Me in My kingdom when you cannot rule over your own soul?  I have given you the power to overcome the works of the flesh and all the power of the enemy, says the Lord.  But, you must exercise that authority in order to be free and effective.  Be diligent to do what it takes to walk in liberty of spirit, soul, and body.  Romans 12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.


FEBRUARY 2015

February 2, 2015:  Change is in the air, and portions of your life experience that you have grown accustomed to are in the process of change.  You will need to pay attention to the signs that suggest a different direction.  Be flexible and position yourself to accommodate the unfamiliar so that you aren't fighting against the inevitable, says the Lord.  Everything will be all right.  Isaiah 55:12 "For you shall go out with joy, and be led out with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands."

February 3, 2015:  Ignoring unpleasant issues will not make them go away.  Take the time necessary to assess your situation and make decisions.  Be mindful that what you decide needs to be based on truth and what is right to do; not on how you feel.  Exercise self-control so that godly attitudes and motivations will rule in your life, says the Lord.  Let Me direct your steps so that what has the potential to be a disaster will actually be a victory.  Psalms 98:1  Oh, sing to the LORD a new song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory.

February 4, 2015:  Now is the time when you can bring many things to completion and tie up loose ends.  You will need to do this before you can progress.  There is a spiritual flow in your life, and it would be of great benefit to you to detect that flow and move with it, says the Lord.  When you are in the "flow" everything works easier and smoother.  For most of you, My people, finding it will be a matter of awareness and making small corrections.  1 Corinthians 15:34 Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.

February 5, 2015:  In a vision I saw someone rising up from the earth; suspended in mid-air.  There was no resistance nor hindrance to movement.  At one point this person appeared to be lying in a hammock, but there were no visible structures of any kind.  It was very peaceful, and I asked the Lord what it could mean.  He said, "If you will rise up by faith and live in the Spirit, the harshness and restrictions of the earth will have no power over you.  You will experience great freedom, rest, and peace."  Galatians 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

February 6, 2015:  Beloved, I want you to be the best you can be in My kingdom.  Go beyond the mundane and experience the spirit realm first-hand.  Don't be satisfied with hearing the stories of the extraordinary spiritual experiences of other people.  Step out in the faith that what I do with and through others, I will do with you.  I do not discriminate, nor do I value one individual more than another, says the Lord.  Be assured that if you are available and completely surrender to Me, I will manifest Myself to and through you.  Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth and said: "In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality."

February 9, 2015:  Clear your mind of all negativity and past disappointments.  Let darkness go, and set your mind on light and life.  Deliberately think about things that bring hope and encouragement.  This is a choice and a discipline, but the more you direct your thoughts, the more doors will open for good things, says the Lord.  I am your hope.  Philippians 4:8  Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there by any praise, think on these things.

February 10, 2015:  In a vision I saw ominous storm clouds gathered on the horizon.  Then, I saw a shepherd with a small flock of sheep in the meadow below.  There was a gentle breeze and then gusts of wind.  I watched as the sheep in the meadow became restless and unsettled, so the shepherd found a rock outcropping with a big rock overhang on the edge of that field.  He took his sheep there for protection until the storm passed by.  And I heard the voice of the Lord:  There is a storm coming, the likes of which you have not seen, but I am the Great Shepherd and those who are Mine will be protected.  The storms are spiritual and must come to give opportunity to those who are wayward to come into My fold.  2 Chronicles 24:19  Yet he sent prophets to them to bring them again unto the LORD; and they testified against them but they would not give ear.

February 11, 2015:  Be still and find that place of peace that goes beyond your natural understanding.  You, My people, are being bombarded with too much noise and too many words.  The earth is filled with words of deception, fear, and outrage.  But, you must stay calm and fill yourself with truth, peace, and assurance that I am with you, says the Lord.  Do not allow the forces of darkness to take you off course.  Be strong and steadfast.  1Corinthians 15:58  Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

February 12, 2015:  Set yourself to receive wisdom and direction that will change your routines in ways that will result in better quality of life.  What seems to be a minor change will result in major benefit.  But, you must be willing to let go of habits and behaviors that have ultimately created more harm than good.  It is My desire for you to live in optimum strength and spiritual awareness, says the Lord.  Let Me show you the way.  Psalms 139:24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

February 13, 2015:   In a vision I saw a clock being fixed.  I believe this was a sign that for many of God's people it has seemed as though time has stood still and that no progress has been made.  You are now in a time when you will begin to see breakthrough moments.  As they come, recognize these events as significant first steps in resuming your divine progression in the process of fulfilling destiny.  1 Timothy 4:15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.

February 16, 2015:  When you walk in My ways, says the LORD, you will set an example that others can follow if they want to live in peace and blessing.  Those that live and walk in the Spirit are able access everything that is available to them through faith.  It is worth it to make the changes necessary to live in righteousness and always do good.  Psalms 37:3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.

February 17, 2015:  Rise up spiritually into My presence and receive the fresh and powerful anointing that is being poured out on those who desire it.  There are things for you to do, but the accomplishment of those things will require the anointing.  Access a new infilling of My Holy Spirit for this season and allow spiritual power, gifts and fruit to manifest in your life, says the Lord.  1 John 2:27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.

February 18, 2015:  I speak to many of you, My people, who feel exhausted.  You will not be able to rectify this condition in the natural realm.  Your refreshment will come from being in My presence.  Much of what feels like being extremely tired comes from discouragement because of circumstances and natural conditions.  Encourage yourself in Me--in spiritual truth--and take the time to be rejuvenated, says the Lord.  1 Samuel 30:6 And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.

February 19, 2015:  I call you to live a surrendered life, one in which you never resist the leading of My Spirit.  It is My desire that you do not choose the world, carnal living, or flesh desires over righteousness and spiritual purity.  As world conditions continue to grow worse, it is even more vital that you separate yourself from all evil and walk in the Spirit, says the Lord.  Set your heart to always do what produces spiritual vitality.  James 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.

February 20, 2015:  I speak to those who feel like you have stalled and are no longer moving forward.  Do not despair.  You should take advantage of this quiet time to do internal work.  Pay particular attention to things brought to your attention that require a change of motivation and attitude.  Align yourself with My Word, says the Lord, and be done with self-justification.  James 1:22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

February 23, 2015:  Let no one deceive you through their own opinions or perceptions.  You must listen to Me, says the Lord, for I will always bring you to truth.   Attune your ears to hear My voice, and allow Me to anoint your eyes to see and understand spiritual truth.  I will direct your steps and lead you in the path of righteousness.  Psalm 23:3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

February 24, 2015:  Beloved, I continue to equip you to do My work and to lift up those around you.  That also means that I have given you the ability to overcome adversity, the work of the enemy, and your own flesh responses.  Pay attention to what you say to others and do your best to control your impulse to whine in an effort to gain sympathy.  Let your requests come before Me alone, says the Lord, for I will give you wisdom and the kind of help that will actually make a difference.  Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

February 25, 2015:  In a vision I saw a car stuck in the mud.  At first, the driver just sat in the car, but as time passed he realized he needed to do something about his situation.  He got out of the car and started walking to get help.  And, the LORD says, "Many of you, My people, are currently stuck in a rut.  Nothing is going to change until you do something about your situation.  Choose to move forward.  Ask Me for help, and I will provide it.  Seek Me for wisdom and direction and I will give it."  Psalms 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

February 26, 2015:  To those who suffer monotony, I tell you the truth that My kingdom is anything but monotonous.  However, you will have to give up your mindset that nothing will ever change or be different for you.  And, you must stir yourself and awaken to curiosity and a sense of desire before you will rise up in the realm of My Spirit and discover true life.  Shake off the bonds of boredom.  Seek Me with all your heart, and enter into a glorious adventure with Me, says the Lord.  Psalms 38:9  Lord, all my desire is before You; and my sighing is not hidden from You.

February 27, 2015:  Establish yourself in strong faith by believing in Me and believing that I reward those who seek Me.  Every difficult situation that you encounter has the potential to strengthen your faith and provide a firm foundation for victory.  Know that I am with you to give you wisdom and bring you through, says the Lord.  Only believe!  James 1:2-4  My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.


MARCH 2015

March 2, 2015:  Some things are just not predictable because of free will and change.  In these matters you will just have to wait and see.  This is a time when you will be able to learn to let go, stop trying to control, and exercise patience.  You can only respond to these situations when you have strong faith that everything will work to your ultimate spiritual benefit, says the Lord.  Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

March 3, 2015:  It is My desire for you to edify, to build one another up.  There is a myriad of ways you can do that, but you must give from a genuine desire to see others receive help and not from wanting to feel better about yourself.  Some of you may be able to give financial aid while others may encourage with kindness or help with tasks.  Take a step in the right direction by truly caring for your fellow man, says the Lord, and I will reward you in kind.  Romans 14:19 Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another.

March 4, 2015:  When circumstances become difficult, and you want to run and hide, run to Me.  Find your refuge in Me.  Regardless of how tough life gets, I will receive you and comfort you.  I will be your port in the storm and will show you what to do about your current dilemma. Come into peace in My presence.  Quiet your soul.  Know that you are going to be all right, says the Lord, for I am with you.  Psalms 61:2 From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

March 5, 2015:  The road has been rocky, and life experiences have been problematic and even dangerous.  But, I have helped you in every circumstance.  You are Mine; you belong to Me.  Set your heart on peace, and let My peace permeate every fiber of your being, says the Lord.  Do not be afraid.  Rather, do all that is necessary to clean up the mess caused by the trouble that has come upon you, and be strong.  Philippians 4:6-7  Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

March 6, 2015:  Settle yourself in a place of peace regardless of the turmoil around you.  Overcome the urge to start a fight or get in someone else's quarrel because it will create a situation that you will not want to deal with.   You will benefit greatly from being a peacemaker, and put your trust in Me to bring forth justice.  Rise up and walk in the Spirit instead of trying to satisfy your flesh.  Proverbs 16:7 When a man’s ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.

March 9, 2015:  You are beginning to deal with all kinds of change in your life--from slight to radical.  Change requires adjustment.  If you refuse to be flexible and are unyielding and rigid, it will be a painful experience.  Do all that is necessary to accommodate the process of adjusting to things that are different than they were.  Let this become a time of spiritual growth as you seek Me in all things, says the Lord.  My love for you never changes.  Hebrews 13:8  Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

March 10, 2015:  Now is the time to upgrade--to take the next step.  I speak to you spiritually to rise to a higher position, greater discernment, and closer relationship to Me, says the Lord.  But, you will also see this process playing out in natural circumstances as a sign of what is happening in the realm of the Spirit.  Pay attention to those things and go with the flow and moving of My Spirit.  Psalm 24:3-4  Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place?  He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully.

March 11, 2015:  Step out into the light.  Let go of everything that has kept you shrouded in darkness.  These are days where the quality of your life can improve dramatically, but you must have patience as you deliberately move away from places of bondage and embrace the liberty that awaits.  Do not doubt in your heart My ability to set you free, says the Lord.  Luke 18:27 But He said, "The things which are impossible with men are possible with God."

March 12, 2015:  Release yourself from all regret.  You cannot change the past, but you can use your past experiences to gain understanding of what motivates yourself and others.  You can access wisdom from the evaluation of the past that will help you become a better human being.  Most importantly, you will have opportunities to learn the value of forgiveness, says the Lord.  Matthew 6:15 "But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

March 13, 2015:  I am well aware that you have been in the doldrums and that it has been more difficult to think and be aware of the nuances in your surroundings.  This phase of what seems to be sleep-walking will soon be a thing of the past as you begin to awaken.  Know that you are not alone and that many are enduring a similar annoyance, says the Lord.  Rest in the hope of better things.  Hebrews 6:9 But, beloved, we are confident of better things concerning you, yes, things that accompany salvation, though we speak in this manner.

March 16, 2015:  You are in a time of preparation that will equip you for the days ahead.  Do not be afraid that you will miss what I am about to do, says the Lord.  When the time comes you will able to see clearly and know without reservation how to respond and move with the flow of My Spirit.  The events of this season will make you ready.  Psalms 31:19 Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You, which You have prepared for those who trust in You in the presence of the sons of men

March 17, 2015:  Be on guard, beloved.  You will have opportunities to get involved in quarrels of various kinds.  But, you would do well to back away from conflict.  If you can bring positive instruction, do so with a humble and contrite spirit.  Otherwise, such an encounter could escalate very quickly into something you really do not want, says the Lord.  A soft answer will turn away wrath.  2 Timothy 2:24-26  And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.

March 18, 2015:  Be thankful and express your gratitude by extending a helping hand to others.  What I have given you is not yours alone, but is a blessing to those you show mercy to, says the Lord.  You are not your own; you are Mine.  You are designed to be My hand extended, and My mouth to encourage and exhort.  Let your heart reflect My heart.  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."

March 19, 2015:  If you will steady yourself and seek My face, says the Lord, I will reveal to you things that have been difficult to grasp.  Bring your inquiry before Me, and be assured that if you ask, I will answer.  But, you must lay aside your own speculations and assumptions and come with a heart wide open and ready to receive.  Do not be afraid.  Luke 11:9 "So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you."

March 20, 2015:  You've been waiting for the right time to step out and accomplish what has seemed to be beyond you.  Now is that time.  But, it would be good for you to ask for wisdom in the process of being led step by step along the way.  Rest assured that I am with you and for you, and I will speak into your situation and bring peace to your heart, says the Lord.  Trust Me!  Psalms 23:2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.

March 23, 2015:  You have come a long way.  Don't stop.  Keep pushing through to the next thing.  You will know the next thing because it will appear like a guest at your door, and you will take one step at a time, one day at a time, until you accomplish what I have set you to do, says the Lord.  At the end of this process you will know yourself better than you ever have before.  Job 23:11 My foot has held fast to His steps; I have kept His way and not turned aside.

March 24, 2015:  I have brought to your attention the futility and fragility of earthly life and values.  Allow difficult circumstances to divide and separate light and darkness, truth and error, as well as eternal and temporary so that your hope will be in Me alone, says the Lord, and not in things of the earth.  Make sure that your emotions and decisions reflect spiritual life and not your carnal nature.  2 Corinthians 4:18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

March 25, 2015:  So, you thought this would be easier, but it has become more difficult and complicated than expected.  Do not despair or give up.  Ask for wisdom and direction.  I know the way you should go, and I will establish you in divine order as you yield to the leading of My Spirit, says the Lord.  Let Me establish your steps and direct you to a good outcome.  Psalms 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

March 26, 2015:  You are in a time of transition between that which is coming to a close and that which is just ahead.  There will be a very distinct difference between where you have been and where you are going.  You are about to ascend to a higher level of spiritual existence.  Letting go of the past is vital to your freedom in moving ahead.  Stay clear and clean so that you can hear My voice and discern My leading, says the Lord.  Ephesians 1:4 ... He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.

March 27, 2015:  I will bring you to a level of spiritual maturity that you have not yet achieved if you are willing to move past childish behavior.  In your willingness, I will point out moments of petulance--times when you are not reasonable or sensible.  I will show you when you are being silly and self-centered so that you can recognize immaturity, have a change of heart, and develop a better attitude, says the Lord.  The choice is yours.  1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

March 30, 2015:  How you treat others is important to Me, says the Lord.  Meanness and hard-heartedness come from the kingdom of darkness, but you belong to Me.  I want you to be kind, loving, and forgiving.  If you have faith and believe that you belong to Me, your actions need to reflect the light that comes from My kingdom.  It is time to make an honest assessment of your behavior and make the necessary adjustments.  Colossians 3:12-14 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.

March 31, 2015:  This is a time when you will have opportunities to re-evaluate areas of your life that need adjusting.  The temptation will come to throw everything away and just start over, but that is not the best course of action.  Not everything needs change, so you must not overreact and do more than is required.  I will give you the wisdom you need to do the right thing, says the Lord.  Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.


APRIL 2015

April 1, 2015:  Be on the alert for things that will interrupt your routine.  They will not necessarily take you out of your spiritual flow, but you will need to stay calm and make adjustments that will allow you to do what you have to do and still be in the Spirit.  Deal with disturbances without procrastinating, and take them in stride, says the Lord.  There is purpose in accommodating disruptions, which you will see and understand after the fact.  Isaiah 58:11 The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

April 2, 2015:  For those of you, My people, who are stressed because of your work load or circumstances, take a deep breath.  I tell you truthfully that everything is going to be all right.  No need to worry.  Take every opportunity to relax even if it is for a few minutes, and re-focus on knowing you have My Spirit to comfort you and lead you to peace and safety, says the Lord.  You are not alone.  Psalms 31:3 For You are my rock and my fortress; therefore, for Your name’s sake, lead me and guide me.

April 3, 2015:  Rise up from the depths of discouragement and despair.  Regardless of difficult situations or the fierceness of the storms in your life, I am still with you.  You can trust Me to bring you through to victory.  Remember that the purpose of a storm is for you to seek Me, find Me, and trust Me.  You live in an imperfect world, but you serve a perfect God.  Live as though you believe that, says the Lord.  2 Samuel 22:31 As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.

April 6, 2015:  Regardless of what you have to endure in this life, you must keep in mind that I am your Savior, your Deliverer, and your Safe Haven.  In this world you will have trouble, but I will help you and bring you through to victory, says the Lord.  Have faith in Me.  2 Corinthians 4:6-9  For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.  We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.

April 7, 2015:  Get ready to emerge from a transitional time when progression seemed to have stalled.  It's not that you haven't accomplished what was necessary, but forward motion was difficult and hindered at best--almost like walking through mud.  You will soon sense a time of release as you move with less restriction and greater freedom, says the Lord.  Philippians 3:13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.

April 8, 2015:  I see those whose hearts have become dull or even dead to life in the Spirit.  I call you forth from being spiritually deaf to hearing My voice again.  I call you forth from spiritual death to live in the Spirit again.  Shake yourself awake and rise up to be alert and vibrant.  These are times that require your alertness and attention, says the Lord.  Come forth!  John 11:43-44 Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth!"  And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Loose him, and let him go."

April 9, 2015:  You must learn to protect your own spiritual and natural space, especially as chaos, confusion, and division continue to get worse.  Come into My place of safety for you and refuse to get entangled with situations that steal your peace, says the Lord.  Make a conscious effort to maintain a strong connection with Me.  2 Peter 2:20 For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning.

April 10, 2015:  It is time to awaken to greater awareness, discernment, and higher purpose.  You cannot move to this new spiritual level when you are still half asleep.  I am calling you to come up here.  Quiet your soul and feel the moving of My Spirit; hear the sound of My voice, and follow My leading.  You are on the threshold of a great awakening, says the Lord.  Be sensitive.  Ephesians 5:14 Therefore He says: "Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light."

April 13, 2015:  Be sure that the word you receive from Me is applied where it is intended.  You must have discernment to understand the relevance and places of effectiveness of that which I speak.  To do this, allow Me to give you the wisdom to know the intent and how you will be affected, says the Lord.  John 6:63 "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life."

April 14, 2015:  I speak to many whose hearts have been torn and minds scattered.  You are trying to find peace, but having lived in crisis for so long, you have lost your bearings and are not able to find your true self in Me, says the Lord.  Your identity has been compromised.  You must stop running and re-establish yourself in a place of spiritual safety and stability by drawing close to Me again.  I am with you.  Psalms 73:28 But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all Your works.

April 15, 2015:  For those who have taken on more than you can effectively handle, it is time to tie up loose ends and to simplify.  It is not good for you to be overextended.  Pull back where you can, and get your priorities in order so that you actually have time for Me, says the Lord.  For, it is in the time you spend in My presence that you will be restored, renewed and invigorated.  Acts 3:19 "Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord."

April 16, 2015:  There are adjustments to be made before the new season is in full swing.  There are decisions to make, things to let go of, and things to acquire.  This will not necessarily be a wide swath of change, but will be minor adjustments that will keep your life on the course that is optimum for you, says the Lord.  Let Me lead you in the way of righteous change.  Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.

April 17, 2015:  Come into order on every front.  The days ahead require your full attention, so you must not be distracted by trivial matters that can be dealt with at this time.  Do not procrastinate, but take care of things that remain unresolved.  I will give you the strength and guidance necessary to take first things first and move forward with precision, says the Lord.  Psalms 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song I will praise Him.

April 20, 2015:  You can either live in the soft breeze of My Spirit or in the whirlwind of your own making.  It is the difference between walking in the Spirit and living in the flesh.  The choice is yours.  But, it would be good for you to quiet your emotional responses and knee-jerk reactions to circumstances, and let Me lead you in the way of peace, says the Lord.  Luke 21:19 "By your patience possess your souls.

April 21, 2015:  You might feel like change is being forced upon you, but I tell you truthfully that if you will embrace this time of adjustments, you will benefit greatly in the days ahead.  Don't be reluctant to let go of that which has outlived its usefulness.  You cannot move forward and stay stationary at the same time.  Allow Me to show you the way, says the Lord.  Psalms 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

April 22, 2015:  In a vision I saw a round corral filled with horses.  They were in the middle of an open range and waiting with wild anticipation for the gate to open.  And, I heard the Lord say, "You are in a time of waiting for the gate to open so that you can experience more of My kingdom and advance in spiritual understanding.  As flowers come forth in springtime when conditions are right, so will new life in you come when spiritual conditions are right."  Isaiah 43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

April 23, 2015:  You have been through a troubling and unsettling time, but you will come out on the other side in victory.  You will not be weakened by your experiences; you will be strengthened and have new understanding of what it takes to overcome and succeed, says the Lord.  I continue to be with you and to lead you into righteous responses to difficult situations.   John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

April 24, 2015:  Life experience for many of you has been like being in white-water rapids with the roar of the river ringing in your ears.  You are about to emerge from this treacherous stretch into a time of when navigating life will be easier and will even have periods of absolute peace.  Maximize the benefits by putting trauma behind you and calming your soul, says the Lord.  Be comforted.  Mark 4:39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.

April 27, 2015:  Embrace change and trust Me that whatever changes you endure will work to your benefit.  There are things that you have needed to let go of, and if you don't let go willingly it will be more difficult to move on.  I know your situation, and I know what is best for you, says the Lord.  Psalms 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

April 28, 2015:   In a vision I saw a man looking at the stars and identifying the constellation Orion.  I knew this had to do with navigation and of finding his bearings.  And, I heard the Lord say, "You have been in a difficult storm and are feeling unstable in many ways.  Now is the time to look and see where you are and to point yourself in the direction of your destination.  The storm has created a separation between that which is actually important and that which has just consumed your time and energy.  Look to Me for direction and guidance."  Psalms 31:3 For You are my rock and my fortress; Therefore, for Your name’s sake, Lead me and guide me.

April 29, 2015:  I am vitally interested in how you treat others.  It is My desire that you respect and value every human being regardless of their position or station in life.  It is time for My chosen ones to be done with all prejudice and unrighteous judgment.  You may disagree with the decisions and actions of others, but that must not be a basis for mistreatment, says the Lord.  Matthew 5:43-45 "You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust."

April 30, 2015:  I always encourage and entreat you to align your life--your purposes, goals, attitudes and actions--with what is good and true.  Your life in the Spirit depends on your willingness to walk in the ways of righteousness and peace, says the Lord.  Prioritize your life to actually put Me first in all things.  Many of you say that is what you want to do, but actions speak louder than words or intentions.  You must do it!  Matthew 6:33 "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."


MAY 2015

May 1, 2015:  Become a holy habitation--a dwelling place--where My Spirit can live and manifest in and through you.  Without My Spirit you will have no power to accomplish what I have called and set you to do.  I have asked you to overcome the flesh, and to walk in the Spirit, but you cannot do that without making yourself a willing vessel, says the Lord.  Ask and receive.  Luke 11:10-13 "For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.  If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?  If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!"

May 4, 2015:  Fear and dread will cause you to live in shallowness.  I would have you dig down deep within yourself to find the strength and courage to gain victory over your circumstances.  Do not be afraid.  Be assured that I see you and I am your very present help in your time of need.  Lean on Me, says the Lord.  Have faith.  Psalms 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

May 5, 2015:  I could hear in the Spirit the announcement of a New Beginning.  It was epic.  I saw a separation and great distance between religion and life in the Spirit, which became a huge expanse.   Things of the earth grew dim and insignificant.  I saw earthly kingdoms like tiny toys as compared to the Kingdom of God.  Armies of the nations were as nothing in the presence of His mighty power.  And, I was comforted to know that He is my Father.  Omnipotent God!  Revelation 19:6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!"

May 6, 2015:  Take advantage of every opportunity to press through the darkness of current situations until you find the light of truth and goodness.  The more time you spend in the light and in My presence, says the Lord, the more you will take on My character and the nature of light.  Escape the grasp of every evil.  Make a decision to do so now.  1 John 1:7  But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

May 7, 2015:  Break out of the herd instinct and of moving with the flood of dissipation.  Refuse to depend on others for your spiritual well-being, and begin to seek Me in earnest, says the Lord.  If you look for Me, you will find Me, but you have to put forth the effort.  Do not put this off, for life and your walk in the Spirit depends on it.   1 John 2:27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.

May 8, 2015:  Things have not worked out as you envisioned or expected, but you must get past discouragement and disappointment.  There is still divine purpose for your life, which does not depend on what you view as failure.  Your future will depend on your relationship with Me, says the Lord, and your willingness to be led by My Spirit.  Your responsibility is to yield and trust Me.   Deuteronomy 1:21 Look, the LORD your God has set the land before you; go up and possess it, as the LORD God of your fathers has spoken to you; do not fear or be discouraged.

May 11, 2015:  You must finish what you started before you can progress.  You have to be free from that which is holding you back before you receive further revelation of My kingdom and embrace greater life in the Spirit.  The earth is but a stage with props that help you manifest My purposes.  Your life should reflect both temporary earthly existence and eternal spiritual life, says the Lord.  2 Corinthians 4:18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

May 12, 2015:  Refuse to allow your environment and circumstances to throw you off balance.  You must maintain a correct relationship between things that require your attention regarding earthly needs and responsibilities and your attention to life in the Spirit and spiritual stability.  If you will put Me first, says the Lord, everything you need will be provided, along with the wisdom to deal with difficult situations.  Matthew 6:33 "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

May 13, 2015:  I know your desire to prosper in all things, and I hear your heart-felt prayers.  Yet, it is important to maintain the proper balance of what you retain and what you give.  It is truly more blessed to give than to receive.  Let Me establish in you a heart of generosity and direct you in the way of giving, says the Lord.  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."

May 14, 2015:  You have become ambivalent--uncertain of what you should do or how you should feel.  The only way out of this dilemma is to ask for wisdom and rely on My Spirit.  I remain the same, says the Lord.  My Word is true, and My guidance is sure.  You can count on Me to lead you in a way that is right for you and those around you.  Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

May 15, 2015:  There is a difference between surviving and thriving.  You can survive many things and even escape disaster by the skin of your teeth, but it is My will for you to thrive in the midst of conflict and upheaval.  I would have you think of everything that you encounter and endure as an opportunity to grow spiritually.  View every circumstance as a way to establish yourself in Me, says the Lord.  John 17:22-23  And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one:  I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

May 18, 2015:  You are the sum total of your opportunities and choices in life, and it would be good for you to review the past briefly to understand more completely where you are now and how you got here.  There are adjustments to be made at this juncture, and the more understanding you have, the better able you are to have sound judgment, says the Lord.  Let Me lead you through these critical decisions.  Joel 3:14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.

May 19, 2015:  Beloved, I would have you use your losses and setbacks to draw near to Me.  Allow your faith to be perfected in the midst of difficult situations as you seek to know Me and My purposes more completely.  Even in darkness I am near, says the Lord.  Remember that I am your help and comfort in times of need.  Psalms 119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction, for Your word has given me life.

May 20, 2015:  In a vision I saw a flock of sheep on a beautiful and hilly meadow.  They were grazing peacefully when joy came upon them, and they began to play and run and jump.  The joy seemed to be contagious.  And, I heard the Lord say, "I am unleashing a wave of peace and joy that will be undeniable.  It cannot be missed or overlooked.  Allow it to move you.  It will bring new spiritual life.  This awakening will not be a rude and noisy wake-up call; it will be gentle and filled with peace.  It will take you to a new level of relationship with Me.  Be sensitive to this moving of My Spirit."  Romans 13:11 And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.

May 21, 2015:   Chaos in your surroundings will make it hard to find peace within your soul.  The only way you can do that is to rise up in the realm of the Spirit and allow Me to establish a sense of quiet calm.  Refuse to allow external disturbances to bring fear, dread, or frantic emotional responses.   The disruptions that have been disquieting will soon pass, says the Lord.  Psalms 131:2  Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.

May 22, 2015:   Take time to regain perspective.  You may have to look back to see how far you have come before you can see clearly where you are and where you are going.  Remember that as you yield to Me, says the Lord, I direct your steps along the path to your ultimate destination.  There is no need to worry or to have regrets.  Your experiences and challenges have strengthened your faith as you are being transformed into My image.  2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

May 25, 2015:  The transition that you are in at this time is not a simple transition between seasons of your life, but is a transition from one era to another.  It is more significant than you have realized.  What is coming in the next span of time will, in many ways, bring to fruition that which you have worked for in the past decade.  Changes that you make in the near future will produce significant and lasting results, says the Lord.  Move forward with confidence that I am leading you.   Follow Me.  Mark 8:34 When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, "Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me."

May 26, 2015:  Whether it seems like it or not, the truth is that everything that you experience and endure will work out for your ultimate and eternal good.  Do not look at your disappointments with finality, but look at your challenges as opportunities to come closer to Me, says the Lord, and to lean on Me more completely.   You can come through every situation with greater endurance and faith.  Trust Me.  James 1:2-4  But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

May 27, 2015:  I am looking for a people who have purified their hearts and separated themselves from all corruption to seek My face, says the Lord.  I call you to be part of that company.  Make a decision.  Allow My Spirit to live in you.  Refuse to allow worldly concerns to take you away from complete unity with Me.  Come.  2 Corinthians 6:17  Therefore "Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you."

May 28, 2015:  You may be reeling from recent events, but I am bringing you to a new place of equilibrium and balance.  I will give you the strength to put the past behind and move forward with faith and confidence.  Refuse the temptation to condemn yourself with thoughts of regret.  I am still with you, says the Lord.  Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

May 29, 2015:  Strong and silent; I want you to be strong and silent.  When you are quiet, you can begin to do an inner work of knowing Me that will become a deep resource for sincerity and resolve.  Your faith depends on the depth of that relationship.  Become a deep well of life in the Spirit, says the Lord.  Ephesians 3:14-19 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

JUNE 2015

June 1, 2015:  Changes are taking place in the realm of the Spirit, and you may find yourself feeling disoriented, disconnected, or even lost.  Take this time to seek Me for wisdom and direction.  Do not make any major decisions until you are clear and more settled.  Refuse to be afraid or allow confusion to become a stronghold.  Quiet your soul and be still, says the Lord.  Psalms 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God...

June 2, 2015:  Make sure that your faith is not misplaced, and that you trust Me alone and not people or circumstances.  I answer the prayer of faith according to My will, says the Lord.   Circumstances will change.  People will disappoint you.  But, I am the same forever, and My Word is truth and trustworthy.  James 4:3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.

June 3, 2015:  Do not stop; do not lose your forward momentum.  It is important to keep moving because I cannot direct you when you sit down and refuse to take the next step.  Your life has purpose, so do not buy into the lies that bring condemnation.  Believe in Me and My ability and willingness to open up the land of promises to you, says the Lord.  Get ready to advance.  Jeremiah 7:24 "Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but followed the counsels and the dictates of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward."

June 4, 2015:  In the midst of difficult challenges, be assured that I am your very present help, says the Lord.  I will give you the wisdom necessary for breakthrough on every front.  And, I will give instruction and direction.  Refuse to allow a fear of failure to undermine your potential victory.  Be strong.  Psalms 46:1  God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

June 5, 2015:  You are entering yet another season of distractions.  Don't fool yourself into believing that distractions are good for you.  Stay focused, and stay on track.  Take every opportunity to be led by My Spirit and stay connected with Me.  That is what is actually good for you both temporarily and eternally, says the Lord.  Vacation from your routine should not be a vacation from Me.  Ephesians 2:4-7 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

June 8, 2015:  Let Me have your heart, says the Lord.  I'm not asking for a piece of your heart.  I'm asking for your whole heart.  You know the difference between loving someone and loving someone with your whole heart.  I want you to love Me with your whole heart--nothing held back.  I want you to give yourself completely to me.  You will not regret your decision to do so.  Mark 12:30 ‘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.

June 9, 2015:  You need a time of rejuvenation.  It would be good for you to have times of rest and relaxation, but your restoration comes from seeking Me and being in My presence.  Come deliberately to Me in spirit and receive all that you need, says the Lord.  Do not delay.  Acts 3:19 "Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord."

June 10, 2015:  In a vision, I saw angels standing on both sides of a gate above the earth.  They were blowing their trumpets and I heard the Lord say, "Come and enter here.  Do not live as an earth dweller; live as a kingdom dweller on the earth.  I am calling you to live in the power of My Spirit so that you can represent Me and My kingdom."  Colossians 3:1-2  If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.  Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

June 11, 2015:  It is important for you to maintain peace in your personal environment even when chaos abounds and surrounds you.  Protect yourself by establishing internal order, and avoid chaotic encounters as much as possible.  Do what you can to stay calm even in the midst of a storm, says the Lord.  Trust Me to protect you.  Exodus 15:13 You in Your mercy have led forth the people whom You have redeemed; You have guided them in Your strength to Your holy habitation.

June 12, 2015:  Find yourself in Me as you identify with My character and nature and embrace the truth of My Word.  Be one with Me, and make My kingdom a priority so that you may prosper in all things.  When your identity is found in what you do and what you have in the world, you are divided in your loyalties.  You cannot serve two masters.  Choose today who you will serve, says the Lord.  Matthew 6:24 "No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."

June 15, 2015:  Beloved, I want you to get in the habit of doing good.  I would have you express your goodness and kindness to someone else.  Do it deliberately from your heart, whether it is a word or an act of kindness.  Do it often, so that it becomes part of your nature, says the Lord.  Psalms 37:3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.

June 16, 2015:  There are things in your life that need to be fixed or adjusted--things that just aren't working right.  Now is a good time to deal with these issues.  If you don't know exactly what to do or how to do it, let Me show you, says the Lord.  If you allow Me, I will take the lead, establish the direction, and order your steps. Psalms 37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way.

June 17, 2015:  My eyes are searching the earth to find and reward those who are faithful.  I seek those who are reliable and trustworthy in establishing My kingdom--those who are stable and stand firm in the truth without wavering.  I am looking for true believers who are not only hearers but doers of My Word, says the Lord.  These are one with Me.  Psalms 101:6 My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me; he who walks in a perfect way, he shall serve me.

June 18, 2015:  Many of you, My people, have been through a time of severe testing.  Your experiences and trials have left you feeling shaky and unstable.  Now is the time to lean on Me.  I am your place of stability and strength.  Come.  Trust Me to make you strong as you build your life on the firm foundation of faith and truth, says the Lord.  Psalm 107:25-29 For He commands and raises the stormy wind, which lifts up the waves of the sea. They mount up to the heavens, they go down again to the depths; their soul melts because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits’ end. Then they cry out to the LORD in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, so that its waves are still.

June 19, 2015:  Pay attention to your thought life and to what you do, and make a determination to separate the things that are vital from things that are a waste of time.  This will help you define and refine what you believe and who you are so that you are more closely aligned with My purposes for you, says the Lord.  Stay out of the shadows and walk in the light.  Jeremiah 15:19 Therefore thus says the LORD: "If you return, then I will bring you back; you shall stand before Me; if you take out the precious from the vile, you shall be as My mouth. Let them return to you, but you must not return to them."

June 22, 2015:  I speak to many when I say that you have constructed walls or barriers around yourself for protection, but they have also become a restriction.  As long as you stay in your comfortable confines, you will not be able to see how to grow or move forward.  Every season of progression involves risk, but the rewards will be worth taking the risk.  Trust that I will protect you, says the Lord.  Isaiah 54:2 "Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes."

June 23, 2015:  In a vision I saw a soft, gentle rain falling on those who are at rest, completely surrendered to the LORD.  The rain was filling cisterns that had become empty and dry.  There was a sense of refreshment on every level--a healing of body and soul, memories and emotions; rejuvenation of the spirit.  It was beautiful, sweet, pure life.  I sensed a time of restoration and renewal by this rain of the Spirit coming to God's people.

June 24, 2015:  Be humble and avoid conflict.  Refuse to allow a haughty spirit to cause you to act or respond inappropriately.  Pride will only escalate the problem and create more trouble.  These are times when a soft answer will turn away wrath.  Exercise self-control and show respect to those around you, says the Lord, and I will undertake on your behalf.  Proverbs 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.

June 25, 2015:  Quiet your soul and be sensitive to My leading, for I will bring you by a way that you would never have imagined.  You have personal resources, talent and gifts, that you have barely tapped.  I will give you opportunities to use what I have given you to bless and encourage others, says the Lord.  The world is full of darkness, but you must allow My light to shine in and through you.  Matthew 5:14-15 "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.  Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house."

June 26, 2015:  Many of you have recoiled from what you have endured in recent months and years.  You have been traumatized by the difficulties that you have had to face.  But, I tell you honestly that your much-needed healing is available and accessible to you.  Come to Me in confidence and faith, says the Lord, and set your heart to receive all that you need to be emotionally whole again.  Romans 5:1-2 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

June 29, 2015:  Take inventory and see where your forward momentum has stalled.  When you stop taking ground from the enemy your victory diminishes.  Make a concerted effort to recover your desire to progress.  I will give you the wisdom and the strength to do all that is required, says the Lord.  1 Timothy 4:15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.

June 30, 2015:  I sensed something ominous in the atmosphere It was like forces of darkness gathering for an assault.  I saw clouds gathering above--high up in the atmosphere, and the clouds became one swirling mass like the beginning of a funnel cloud forming, but not yet touching down.  I could feel the presence of God as if He was brooding over His people--calling us to a place of safety in Him.  There was a pleading--almost urgently--for us to be ready and stay ready.  2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. 


JULY 2015

July 1, 2015:  This is a time when you can take whatever steps are necessary to leave the past behind in ways that are deliberate and decisive.  You must do this before you can step into the next phase of progression.  Be done with things that are no longer useful and not relevant to who you are and where you are going.  Hold the things of the earth with an open hand, says the Lord.  Colossians 3:2  Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

July 2, 2015:  Don't give up when things become difficult.  Push through; press through; get through.  You can do this, and you are the only one who can do this.  Know that I will guide you and give you direction when you feel you have lost your way or your momentum.  Changes are taking place, but there is no need to fear.  You are moving to higher ground spiritually, and I am with you, says the Lord.  Psalms 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

July 3, 2015:  When things get really hectic, you need to take a breath and let go of the stress of the situation.  Remember that I give wisdom when needed.  I will also give you the strength to accomplish all that is before you.  Clear your mind of all anxiety and stay calm, says the Lord.  Trust Me.  Proverbs 17:27 He who has knowledge spares his words, and a man of understanding is of a calm spirit.

July 6, 2015:  I speak to the feeling that you have of not knowing where you are and that you are not sure of your next step.  That is because changes are taking place that affect your life and your sense of stability.  Things will never be the same again, and you must let go of all that keeps you from being free to move on.  But, you must also realize that your spiritual equilibrium only comes from your life in Me, says the Lord.  Stay connected.  Isaiah 33:6 Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times, and the strength of salvation; the fear of the LORD is His treasure.

July 7, 2015:  Keep pushing through difficult circumstances.  Breakthrough is assured if you refuse to give up.  This is much like the birthing process; the reward is worth the fight.  You will press into a new beginning when old things are in the past and put away.  Isaiah 42:9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.

July 8, 2015:  There are issues that need to be resolved, and you do not know how to bring them to resolution.  But, I say to you that if you will release your offense and trust Me to take care of this, I will.  I will lead you in the way of righteousness and bring peace not only to your own heart but to your situation, says the Lord.  All you need to do is let go and put your faith in Me.  Mark 11:22 So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God."

July 9, 2015:  I am doing a new thing in and around My people, says the Lord.  This new thing will require change on many levels.  But, I will prepare you by directing you and giving you wisdom in accepting and cooperating with the changes that are necessary in reaching new spiritual heights.  Do not be afraid of the unknown.  Nothing is hidden from My sight, and all that you need to know will be revealed to you.
1 Corinthians 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one’s praise will come from God.

July 10, 2015:  I heard the word divergent.  And, the Lord says, "Forces of darkness have begun to scatter you, My people, and cause you to move apart and go in different directions.   The enemy's goal is to distract you from your primary purpose and focus.  It is vital that you stay connected to Me at this time and maintain a sense of unity with one another.  Be one with Me."  Ephesians 4:3 endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

July 13, 2015:  There are certain requirements that must be met at this time before you can be free to do the next thing.  Establish yourself in a place of willingness to do all that I have asked of you, and continue to accomplish what I have set before you, says the Lord.  Be strong and do the work.  2 Chronicles 15:7 "But you, be strong and do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded!"

July 14, 2015:  Find your place of peace even in the midst of turmoil.  Be calm and collected regardless of what is going on around you.  Rise above the darkness of the earth and live as a citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven, says the Lord.  Refuse to be troubled by what you hear.  You belong to Me, and I will protect My own.   John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

July 15, 2015:  I see and know what you have endured at the hands of others, but I want you to give up on any thought of retaliation or retribution.  When you take matters into your own hands instead of putting your trust in Me, I cannot bring justice.  Your forgiveness and the release of your anger will make a way for My judgment to be carried out, says the Lord.  Romans 12:19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord.

July 16, 2015:  Relationship with Me is a very tender thing.  It is delicate and needs to be protected.  It is easy to lose the sweetness of our love affair by allowing your commitment to Me to become religious works.  Take inventory of where you are spiritually, and renew your sense of deep love, says the Lord.  Refuse to drift away in your busyness.  2 Thessalonians 3:5 Now may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patience of Christ.

July 17, 2015:  Stop and reflect on what I have asked of you, says the Lord.  Take heart that you have accomplished a lot of what has been given to you to do.  But, more is required.  Keep pushing through and do not give up.  Hear My still, small voice encouraging you, and be aware that I am strengthening you.  This is not beyond your ability or resources, for I am your present help in these times.  Psalms 143:10 Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.

July 20, 2015:  I want you to face yourself directly, and look carefully at things that cause you to be in bondage.  It is My desire that you be free from everything that keeps you from perfect liberty.  Every day is an opportunity to choose life and freedom as opposed to darkness and oppression.  Choose life, says the Lord.  Deuteronomy 30:19 "I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live."

July 21, 2015:  You can begin to celebrate breakthrough in the areas of life where you have been stuck for sometime.  It will come like the breaking of a dam--slow at first followed by a final burst.  This will bring a sense of relief and a season of divine order and liberty, says the Lord.  Flow with the moving of My Spirit.  Psalms 98:1 Oh, sing to the LORD a new song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory.

July 22, 2015:  Push forward to meet the criteria I have set for you.  Conquer obstacles and difficulties as they arise, and trust Me to give you the strength and wisdom necessary.  Establish a pure heart and keep your eyes on what is truly important so that mundane and practical matters do not take the place of spiritual focus, says the Lord.  Keep looking up.  Psalms 20:7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

July 23, 2015:  Come softly into My presence, says the Lord.  Experience the sweetness of righteousness and purity.  This is your place of escape from the hassles of the world and all the filthiness of flesh.  Come and rest.  Be healed and restored.  Let go of all corruption and defilement that seems to be inescapable except for rising up in the Spirit to commune with Me.  Psalms 71:2 Deliver me in Your righteousness, and cause me to escape; incline Your ear to me, and save me.

July 24, 2015:  Make a decision to be flexible.  Changes, both small and great, will require your ability and willingness to accept them so that you can progress.  If, at any point in this process, you refuse to incorporate these changes into your life experience you will get stuck spiritually.  I am moving you into positions that will result in maximum benefit to you and those around you, says the Lord.  James 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.

July 27, 2015:  You are transitioning into a time that will ultimately look very different compared to where you have been.  Hold the past loosely and move forward with expectation.  Simplicity is the order of the day as you establish yourself in greater spiritual freedom, says the Lord.  Let Me lead you.  Psalms 31:3 For You are my rock and my fortress; Therefore, for Your name’s sake, Lead me and guide me.

July 28, 2015:  Quiet your soul and ask for My wisdom and direction before you do something you will regret.  Take this time to draw near to Me and be close so that you can stay on course.  Refuse to allow your emotions to take the lead, says the Lord.  Otherwise, you could find yourself far from what is right and purposeful.  Psalms 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

July 29, 2015:  Do not despair when things do not seem to be working out for you.  Refuse to speak negatively about your circumstances or lose heart, but quietly wait for My leading.  I will show you ways in which you can make the course corrections necessary to your victory, says the Lord.  Let faith, hope, and love be your strength.  Psalms 27:13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.

July 30, 2015:  Set a watch for unauthorized intrusions into your life and circumstances, and stay protected.  Beware of schemes and scams at this time.  If you will stand on the firm ground of righteousness and truth, you will be able to discern both good and evil, says the Lord.  I will show you when evil intentions are present.   Your connection to Me is vital.  Hebrews 5:14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

July 31, 2015:  Righteousness triumphs over evil.  Do what it takes to win every battle and in so doing you will win the war.  I have given you the authority to defeat the powers of darkness regardless of how they manifest, but you must exercise your legal right to overcome.  Discern your spiritual environment to know when and what to fight, says the Lord.  Luke 10:19  "Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you."


AUGUST 2015

August 3, 2015:  Come into rest where you throw all of your cares on Me.  My presence is the only place of restoration and rejuvenation.  I know what you've been through and the stressful burden you have carried.  Let go of everything that has sapped your strength and vitality.  Come and be renewed, says the Lord.  Matthew 11:28-30 "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."

August 4, 2015:  Even though the temptation is great to make comparisons and measure yourself and others according to arbitrary standards, it is not good.  It is an effort in futility and has no positive outcome at all.  My desire is that you look to Me for direction, guidance, and correction and allow Me to lead you in ways that will have a good outcome, says the Lord, and leave others alone.  2 Corinthians 10:12 For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

August 5, 2015:  Ask of Me, says the Lord.  There are things you need that you do not have because you have not come to Me from the depth of your desire and trust to know that I hear and answer your requests.  I know everything about you, and I even know what you need before you ask.  But, it is important for you to participate in the spiritual process.  Come to Me.  James 4:2 You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask.

August 6, 2015:  In a vision I saw a beach in a cove with beautiful, white sand.  I both saw and heard the ocean tide coming in.  There was great peace in that place, but I knew that beyond the breaking waves a war was raging on the high seas.  And, I heard the Lord say, "Even when the world is at war with nation set against nation and people against people, you can find peace in My presence.  I am your safe haven in the midst of war, storms and evil."  Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in the LORD shall be safe.

August 7, 2015:  You are in a time of waiting, but it would behoove you to exercise patience while maintaining an open heart, open mind, and open hand.  If you will let go of unreasonable expectations, this time will pass with ease.  Trying to rush things will only produce frustration and attract opposition.  You can endure this time with grace as you put your trust in Me, says the Lord.  James 1:4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

August 10, 2015:  When you answered the call to come into My Kingdom, I asked you to do what is right in every instance--not what is convenient.  I want you to be objective and honest in all things.  Do not be swayed by emotional prejudice, but be righteous, says the Lord.  Psalms 5:12 For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield.

August 11, 2015:  Do not pull back or give up on what you started; you are not finished.  Keep moving forward.  You have already accomplished more than you thought you could, but you must continue to be strong and resolute in bringing to completion what you have been given to do, says the Lord.  Rely on Me to give you the wisdom and strength necessary.  I am with you.  Isaiah 58:11  The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

August 12, 2015:  Beloved, I am working in you through your circumstances to help you identify and root out all rebellion.  Your submission to Me, says the Lord, will produce good fruit.  I have given you the ability to discern both good and evil so that you can submit to what is good, and resist the enemy.  Do so with integrity and be blessed.  James 4:7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

August 13, 2015:  I have brought you by a way that you have not been before.  You have encountered unexpected challenges and have had opportunities to overcome.  Yet, through having to face obstacles and difficulties you have become stronger and more determined to walk with Me, says the Lord.  Therefore, I will open the doors of promise and delight before you.  Psalms 37:4 Delight yourself also in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.

August 14, 2015:  Take time to rest from all of the activity and stress that you have endured.  Let go mentally and emotionally of everything that has been weighing heavily upon you.  Give your burden to Me, says the Lord, and I will give you the kind of rest that allows you to access healing and restoration in your spirit, soul, and body.  Psalms 55:22 Cast your burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.

August 17, 2015:  I have given you the grace to move through the challenges you face with grace.  I have enabled you to do what is necessary to overcome.  Refuse to become a victim, and resist the temptation to quit rather than press through, says the Lord.  My grace is sufficient!  2 Corinthians 12:9a  And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness."

August 18, 2015:  You are in a time of separation when you will divide the precious from the vile.  You have gone through previous seasons of doing this, but every time that you respond in obedience to My directive, you come higher spiritually.  When you do what I ask, you achieve greater clarity of vision and purpose, says the Lord.   Jeremiah 15:19 Therefore thus says the LORD: "If you return, then I will bring you back; you shall stand before Me; if you take out the precious from the vile, you shall be as My mouth. Let them return to you, but you must not return to them."

August 19, 2015:  Your attention has been divided, and you feel scattered and pulled in several directions.  Refuse to allow your activities to cause you to be unfocused.  Your ultimate and divine priority is to stay connected spiritually to Me.  To do so will require dedication and supreme effort, but you are up to the task.  You just needed a little reminder, says the Lord.  James 4:8  Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

August 20, 2015:  I want you to learn to be quiet and shut out all the noise and voices except for Mine, says the Lord.  You cannot have sound judgment or make good decisions when there are too many voices around you.  You cannot discern properly until you can find a place of peace both externally and internally.  Be focused and still.  Psalms 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

August 21, 2015:  In a vision I saw a man making his way up a very steep mountain to reach the place where he would build his house.  As he climbed he got tangled in vines and weeds that hindered his ascent.  And, I heard the Lord say, "I'm taking you, My people, to a new dwelling place in the Spirit.  It is higher than you have ever been.  However, the enemy of your soul will try to prevent your progression.  You must resist the temptations that entangle you and keep you from your destination.  I am with you."  Galatians 5:1  Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

August 24, 2015:  If you will watch and learn, I will give you fresh perspective that will help you better understand where you are and where you are going.  But, you must pay close attention to what I show you, says the Lord.  Positioning yourself according to My will and purposes will guarantee your success.  Proverbs 5:1-2  My son, pay attention to my wisdom; lend your ear to my understanding, that you may preserve discretion, and your lips may keep knowledge.

August 25, 2015:  This is a time when small corrections will reap big benefits.  Don't overlook anything that grabs your attention even for a moment, for I will show you the power of paying attention to details.  And, I will cause the insignificant to become significant, says the Lord.  Sharpen your focus to see the tiny things, and magnify your ability to hear My still, small voice.  Proverbs 4:1 Hear, my children, the instruction of a father, and give attention to know understanding.

August 26, 2015:  A shift in direction and priorities is in process, which could cause you to feel lost.  If you will refuse to allow your emotions to gain control at this time and keep moving forward, you will realize that you are not lost at all.  You are changed, and the changes that you have endured will ultimately make you more stable, says the Lord.  Ask and I will give you the anointing of ease.  Psalms 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

August 27, 2015:  You have endured plenty of resistance and opposition to what I have asked you to do, but your perseverance is paying off.  Now you must move forward into the purposes for which I have called you, and you will have new hope and freedom to do so.  The past is behind you, so reach beyond your grasp to achieve what may seem to be impossible.  I am your help, says the Lord.  Isaiah 42:9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.

August 28, 2015:  Simplify and fortify.  The days ahead will require that you focus your attention and stay protected.  If you are too scattered, you will miss the importance of the season and make mistakes that could be hard to fix.  I will direct your steps, but you must be clear enough to hear and obey My leading, says the Lord.  Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

August 31, 2015:  Look to Me for answers.  Ask and receive; only believe.  I am with you to give you wisdom and to direct your steps.  I will establish you and strengthen you to proceed on the path that is before you, says the Lord.  Do not be afraid.  1 Peter 5:10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.

SEPTEMBER 2015

September 1, 2015:  The enemy will do what he can to create confusion and to complicate matters even when they are relatively simple.  You must stand on the solid ground of peace and stay calm enough to see situations clearly instead of through the eyes of stress.  Be found in My presence where I can give you wisdom and the ability to overcome all adversity, says the Lord.  Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

September 2, 2015:  When you are feeling overwhelmed, do not despair.  Let Me put you in the perfect flow of My Spirit and establish you in peace where you have no stress or anxiety.  You can trust that I will move you through this turbulent time with grace, says the Lord.  There is no need to worry.  Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

September 3, 2015:  Many of you, My people, are at a point when you must re-evaluate who and where you are along with your attitudes and motivations.  This is a time when you can get back on track with what is important spiritually instead of only pleasing yourself.  Take advantage of this opportunity to rededicate your heart to Me, and set yourself apart to live in the Spirit, says the Lord.  This is a new day!  1 Chronicles 29:5 "Who then is willing to consecrate himself this day to the LORD?"

September 4, 2015:  In a vision I saw a blind man making his way along a fence.  He was told that the fence would lead him to his destination, but he did not know if it extended beyond his destination.  He had to stop often to get his bearings from what he could hear or feel.  He knew if he stayed close to the fence he would arrive safely.  And, I heard the Lord say, "I will lead you to your destination, but you must be aware of My presence and leading."  Psalms 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

September 7, 2015:  The changes that take place at this time will require all of the concentration that you can muster.  You must be focused and deliberately walk and live in My Spirit, says the Lord.  Your nature must become My nature if we are to become One.  You cannot walk in the Spirit and still try to gain access from outside of yourself.  I am in you!  Galatians 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

September 8, 2015:  I will bless those who have hearts to bless others.  I honor and reward generosity, says the Lord.  Look to see where you can sow seeds of kindness, and do not overlook opportunities to help where it is needed, says the Lord.  As My nature develops in you, My desire to give will flow through you, and your harvest will be plentiful.  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."

September 9, 2015:  My desire is for you, My people, to do justice.  That is to discern right from wrong and make a decision to do what is right in every case.  The world abounds with injustice, and you must fight the perversion that comes to seduce you into compromising the truth.  You must stand for what is right and good without wavering, says the Lord.  Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

September 10, 2015:  Prepare yourself to step up to the plate and be all that I have called you to be.  No more excuses; no more letting yourself off the hook.  Take responsibility for where you are and what you have done.  Take this opportunity to make good choices that will affect you and those around you in the best ways possible, says the Lord.  Isaiah 42:9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.

September 11, 2015:  There is a widening chasm of separation between light and darkness, good and evil, strength and weakness.  Beloved, I have called you to the place of light, good and strength.  Refuse to allow anyone or anything to keep you from your rightful position, says the Lord.  Choose wisely in every situation and be resolute.  Proverbs 3:31 Do not envy the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.

September 14, 2015:  Assimilate all of the changes that have taken place in the past three months.  Some of what I have directed you to do has seemed radical.  However, these adjustments have been necessary before you can move forward with clarity and purpose.  As you become accustomed to how things in your life look now, you will see that you have simplified and fortified, having greater strength and protection than ever, says the Lord.  Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

September 15, 2015:  Pay attention to My still, small voice and the gentle moving of My Spirit, says the Lord.  Be sensitive to subtle things because understanding small things will open your eyes to the grand scheme of things.  I will lead you into places of safety where you can remain quiet and calm in the midst of turmoil and chaos.  Do not be afraid, but put your trust in Me.  Psalm 23:1-3   The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

September 16, 2015:  Let go of everything that keeps you bound and unable to move on.  Be free.  Let your spirit soar with Me.  I have revelation to impart as well as greater knowledge of My kingdom and understanding of My ways, but you must position yourself to receive without restraint.  Walk with Me.  I will reveal the wonders of things unknown, says the Lord.  Jeremiah 33:3 Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.

September 17, 2015:  You are a work in progress.  Don't give up before you see the fruit of what I have called you to.  When you get overwhelmed, step back and look at the big picture.  Regain your vision so that you can see clearly where you are in the process, says the Lord.  Keep your faith strong in Me instead of emphasizing the state of opportunities or performance.  1 John 3:20 For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.

September 18, 2015:  I know the difficulties that you have faced.  I see where you are and what lies ahead, and I tell you truthfully that I am with you to bring you through all things.  Never fear what you cannot perceive or understand, but trust Me to give wisdom and direction in every circumstance.  I will not fail you, says the Lord.  Psalm 91:1-7  He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust."  Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence.  He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.  A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.

September 21, 2015:  Let Me fill you with My presence--My glory.  Seek Me.  Wait on Me.  Don't leave without making contact and knowing that we have communed together, says the Lord.  It is My desire that we have a more intimate relationship and that you allow My Spirit to move you into a position where our mutual interests are fulfilled.  Acts 3:19 "Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord."

September 22, 2015:  Do you feel the shift?  Changes are taking place.  It is a time when you will be able to bring many issues to resolution after feeling stuck.  Problems will be solved supernaturally where natural solutions failed.  Keep your head up, your ears attentive, and your eyes open as you set a watch for opportunities, says the Lord.  Mark 13:33 "Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is.

September 23, 2015:  Refuse to allow stressful situations to shake your confidence and quiet reserve.  Keep your focus intently on Me, says the Lord.  Be sensitive to My leading.  There is nothing too big for Me to accomplish.  I will bring you through in victory.  Stay calm and solidly positioned in your faith.  Matthew 17:20 So Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you."

September 24, 2015:  There are still matters that need to be taken care of before you can progress.  This will require careful thought and a solid plan.  Spend the time necessary to be sure that you are in a divine flow and being led by My Spirit, says the Lord.  This is a crucial time in establishing yourself in spiritual precision.  Stay connected to Me so that you can receive wisdom.  Proverbs 2:2 So that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding.

September 25, 2015:  Ask for wisdom in sowing seeds for the next harvest.  This is a significant time when the seeds of kindness and generosity will produce a greater than usual harvest in the months to come.  It is important that you treat others with the same respect and kindness as you believe you deserve, says the Lord.  Be righteous.  Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

September 28, 2015: You are living in troubling times, but you must not allow your environment to penetrate and disturb your peace. Gain and maintain peace in the Spirit and know that when you become one with Me, you are under my protection and direction. Do not be afraid, says the Lord. Psalms 91:1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

September 29, 2015:  When all hell seems to be breaking loose, hunker down.  Be quiet and do not allow turmoil and confusion to disturb your peace and sense of well-being.  Call on Me for wisdom and direction.  I am your present help in trouble, and nothing is too difficult for Me, says the Lord, and I am with you.  Zechariah 2:13 "Be silent, all flesh, before the LORD, for He is aroused from His holy habitation!"

September 30, 2015:  Honesty and integrity are cornerstones of righteousness.  I call you, My people, to be right and good in all things and to keep your heart aligned with My purposes, says the Lord.  Trust is a sacred part of relationship with others as well as with Me.  Be fair, reliable and honest in everything you say and do, and blessing will flow into your life.  Otherwise, darkness will prevail.  Proverbs 11:3 The integrity of the upright will guide them, but the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them.

OCTOBER 2015

October 1, 2015:  Change has been a major theme in the past few months.  Do not underestimate the effect these changes have had on your spirit, soul, and body.  They have been significant, and might have left you still reeling.  But, know that what you have been through has equipped and prepared you for the days ahead.  You will look back at this time and see the value of your separation from that which was no longer valid in your quest for spiritual clarity, and you will cherish the lessons you learned, says the Lord.  You will never be the same.  Isaiah 54:14-15 And one shall say, "Heap it up! Heap it up! Prepare the way, take the stumbling block out of the way of My people."  For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: "I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones."

October 2, 2015:  Reset!  It is time to recognize the need to start over.  Wipe the slate clean and begin again by getting your priorities in order and doing what is important for this season.  Everything in the past has brought you to this point in your life.  Take stock of what you want to take with you into the next phase of your existence and what you want to leave behind, and then do it.  Be brave and resolute, says the Lord.  Isaiah 50:7 "For the Lord GOD will help Me; therefore I will not be disgraced; therefore I have set my face like a flint, and I know that I will not be ashamed."

October 5, 2015:  If you are to live in My Spirit and establish yourself in divine order, you must do all that I ask, says the Lord.  You, My people, have come a long way, but you must push through until your obedience is fulfilled.  Don't stop short of your goal, but rather push through to complete freedom from all that holds you back.  1 Corinthians 9:24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.

October 6, 2015:  Be aware that the forces of evil are swirling around you to create confusion and chaos.  I tell you to be still and be calm while you resist with an inner strength that cannot be overcome, says the Lord.  Be at peace and find your habitation in Me.  Be strong, and let your light dispell the darkness that is encroaching.  1 Peter 2:9-10  But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

October 7, 2015:  Spiritual freedom is the doorway that will lead to the access of benefits in My kingdom, says the Lord.  Bondage of any kind will keep you from the fullness of life in the Spirit.  I have given you authority to overcome and defeat the flesh, the devil, and worldliness.  You must make choices that result in either life or death; liberty or bondage.  Scrutinize your decisions.  Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

October 8, 2015:  Let bygones be bygones.  Mourning over the past and thinking about what you could have done, should have done, or might have done is a waste of time and energy.  What you did or did not do is a fact of life.  What you can do is learn from your experiences, both positive and negative, and move on with greater insight because of what you have been through.  That's life.  From this moment forward depend on Me for direction, guidance and wisdom, says the Lord.  I will help you.  Psalms 46:1  God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

October 9, 2015:  I speak to many when I say that you have become distracted with worldly concerns to the point of falling asleep spiritually.  Now is the time to shake yourself awake and get on the path of walking in the Spirit.  I want you to live in Me and live your faith, says the Lord.  I did not call you to religious exercise, but to a vital and strong relationship with Me.  This will require a shift in focus.  John 14:20 "At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.

October 12, 2015:  You have been out of your comfort zone for some time.  I have asked you to do things that were difficult and even exasperating.  But, now you will begin to establish new routines and ways of doing things that will make life much easier in many ways.  What you must do now is be sensitive to My Spirit and allow Me to take the lead.  Determine to know My will in every situation, says the Lord.  1 John 2:17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

October 13, 2015:  In a vision I saw myself and others with me moving supernaturally with great speed.  We had a destination in mind and everything else was moved out of the way.  Our focus was on our ultimate goal, and we did not waver.  We felt compelled by the Spirit to continue on our course unhindered.  The forces of darkness and works of the flesh had no power, and they were as nothing to us in this state of being.  Psalm 18:29  For by You I can run against a troop, by my God I can leap over a wall.  As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.

October 14, 2015:  You can now deal with unresolved issues as many things will now be brought to a conclusion.  You can look back briefly to realize the events that have brought you to this place, but do not dwell there.  Be prepared to move on without regret.  Allow My plans and purposes to not only be understood but realized at this time, says the Lord.  Proverbs 19:21 There are many plans in a man’s heart, nevertheless the LORD’S counsel—that will stand.

October 15, 2015:  You have been scattered, but I want you to collect yourself.  Take stock to see what it is you really need to consider and accomplish.  Pull your thoughts in so that you are not obsessing about things you have no control over.  Rather, trust Me to cause all things to work together for your benefit, says the Lord.  I am doing a great work in these days in the lives of My people.  Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

October 16, 2015:  You, My people, are My great experiment.  I have given you the ability to choose for yourselves whether or not you will love Me and serve Me.  And, your choices will bear fruit one way or another.  You can say with your mouth that you will do all that I ask, but the proof will be in whether or not you are actually obedient.  Your words can be a lie, but your actions tell the truth, says the Lord.  Matthew 21:28  "But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go, work today in my vineyard.’  He answered and said, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he regretted it and went. Then he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said, ‘I go, sir,’ but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?" They said to Him, "The first."

October 19, 2015:  The changes that have come about in your life will have greater than normal impact on your future.  Even though some of what you have been through seemed destructive, you have put your future in My hands, and I will lead you in the way of righteousness and peace.  Allow Me to be your guide, says the Lord.  Isaiah 58:11 The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

October 20, 2015:  You will begin to look at core matters in your life without being distracted by extraneous concerns.  You will be able to focus on what is really important to you.  You must get to this place of  awareness before you can realize effective spiritual progress, says the Lord.  Don't waste your time worrying about things that have no eternal value.  Psalms 14:2 The LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any who understand, who seek God.

October 21, 2015:  When you can't figure out what to do, you need to take a break from the issue and quiet your soul.  Ask for wisdom, and I will show you the next thing to do.  Then, it is up to you to be obedient and follow My directions, says the Lord.  Trust Me to bring you through every difficulty.  1 John 5:14  Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

October 22, 2015:  I have already told you not to despise the days of small beginnings.  And, you have been obedient and content with what you have.  You have been diligent to do all that I have asked.  But, now you will be moving into a season filled with not only small things, but great things.  My plans and purposes for you are being fulfilled, says the Lord.  Zechariah 4:9-10a "The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands shall also finish it. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you. For who has despised the day of small things?"

October 23, 2015:  This is an opportune time to break old bad habits and to begin to form new, beneficial ones.  Many of the things that you blame on forces of evil are simply bondages of the flesh formed from habitual choices.  Allow Me to give you the strength to overcome by making better decisions, says the Lord.  Romans 12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

October 26, 2015:  In a vision I saw a bird with ruffled feathers, and the Lord said, "I know the difficulties that you have faced in recent months, and that you have been agitated and annoyed at times.  Your feathers have been ruffled, so to speak.  But now you must release all sense of aggravation and move on.  You cannot walk in the Spirit and hold on to your grievances."  Mark 11:26 "But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses."

October 27, 2015:  I saw lights in a vision--one on either side of me and one out ahead of me.  I knew they set the boundaries of our journey.  I heard the Lord say that if we would stay within the spiritual parameters set for us that our success would be assured.  Our decisions will either be according to His will or according to our flesh.  Flesh will move us off of His perfect path, but walking in the Spirit will keep us in His heart and in His will.  Psalms 17:8  Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me under the shadow of Your wings.

October 28, 2015:  Maintain clarity of thought and purpose, and refuse to allow non-essentials to cloud your vision.  Strive to be focused so that you can stay connected to Me and receive wisdom and direction.  It is imperative that you stay on track spiritually.  Know that there is an over-abundance of things that can and will distract you if you aren't careful, says the Lord.  2 Corinthians 10:5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

October 29, 2015:  You have had to deal with hindrances, but now you will be able to break through barriers with very little effort.  It might take some planning and diligence, however.  Be glad and thankful that you are able to put those nagging things behind you, says the Lord, and set yourself to live in peace.  John 8:36 "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed."

October 30, 2015:  Refuse to feel sorry for yourself or to lose hope.  Rise up in the strength of My purpose for you.  Do not underestimate the power of your will to go as hard as you can for as long as you can to accomplish what I have set before you, says the Lord.  You are not alone; I am with you to gain the victory.  Luke 17:6 So the Lord said, "If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you."

NOVEMBER 2015

November 2, 2015:  It's been a bumpy ride in recent days, but things will now begin to level out--making it easier to get your bearings.  In this process you will need to be quiet and not allow the turmoil of your emotions and thoughts to drown out the sound of My voice, says the Lord.  Be still, perceive, and discern.  Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

November 3, 2015:  Keep your wits about you.  Your spiritual atmosphere has been stormy, but you need to let the dust settle before you make important decisions.  This is a temporary condition; you will quickly regain perspective and clarity.  Wait for it, says the Lord.  Psalms 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

November 4, 2015:  Take every opportunity to quiet your soul and rest.  You have expended energy in unusual ways, and the stress has made you feel tired.  Your regeneration and rejuvenation will come from being in My presence, says the Lord.  I will lift you up.  Acts 3:19b "...so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord."

November 5, 2015:  Reflect on your relationship with Me, says the Lord, and let it deepen so that you become a reflection of My character and nature.  This is a deliberate act of devotion and dedication.  The times demand that you make a choice.  You will either be a citizen of My Kingdom, or you will be worldly.  Refuse to allow any distraction to take you off course.  2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

November 6, 2015:  I want you to release the dread in your heart to Me.  Do not allow fear to rule in your soul with regard to what might happen in the days ahead.  Today's issues are enough to deal with in righteousness without adding supposition.  Avoid wasting your time and energy on a fear-based future, says the Lord.  Matthew 6:34  "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."

November 9, 2015:  In a vision I saw a man sitting in a clearing in the middle of a forest.  Night was falling, and he had encircled himself with small, individual campfires to keep the predators away.  And, I heard the Lord say, "It is the fire of My Spirit that will not only comfort you, but will also keep the enemy at bay.  Position yourself to live in spiritual safety."  Luke 3:16 John answered, saying to all, "I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire."

November 10, 2015:  Watch for opportunities to deal with things that will bring you into more complete order, says the Lord.  The worlds were framed by order, and My kingdom is built by order, so optimum benefit in your life will require divine order, says the Lord.  Colossians 2:5 For though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ.

November 11, 2015:  I want to change your view so that you can see things from My perspective, says the Lord.  I want you to look beyond your personal concerns and desires to see yourself and your circumstances as temporary.  I would have you consider what is important spiritually and eternally, and I will open your eyes wide to see with precision.  Proverbs 23:26 My son, give me your heart, and let your eyes observe my ways.

November 12, 2015:  Pay attention to how you respond to life and circumstances, and make changes that are necessary in order to always do what is right and good.  Always choose the most righteous option in making decisions.  Do no harm to anyone, but always regard those around you, says the Lord.  You must do this if you are going to prosper in all things.  Micah 6:8  He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?

November 13, 2015:  In transforming you into My image, I must shine a light that is brighter than the sun, a light that will penetrate every area of darkness in your soul.  I want you to see with precision all that lurks in the shadows beneath your exterior.  These will be things that must be relinquished before you will be able to see Me face to face, says the Lord.  2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

November 16, 2015:  If in your heart, you seek My face and My will, I will direct you in the path of righteous living.  And, your actions on that path will please Me very much.  If you depart from that path to have your own way in satisfying your flesh desires, you will also depart from My presence, says the Lord.  Choose wisely.  Romans 9:8 That is, those who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed.

November 17, 2015:  I have sanctified and set you aside for Myself--separated from the world and worldly values to spiritual and eternal values.  I am raising up a people whose hearts wholly belong to Me without compromise or hypocrisy.  You are called by My name and no other.  Be one with Me, says the Lord.  Isaiah 43:7 Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.

November 18, 2015:  Be aware of your spiritual environment.  Discern the atmosphere and your effect upon it.  See what you must do to make it better for yourself and for those around you.  You have a great responsibility to represent My kingdom in your place on the earth.  Do what it takes to be a good ambassador, says the Lord.  Let your light shine; let freedom reign.  Luke 11:33 "No one, when he has lit a lamp, puts it in a secret place or under a basket, but on a lampstand, that those who come in may see the light."

November 19, 2015:  Watch for a tendency in these hectic times to lack patience with others and to snap at them.  This is a function of the flesh exhibited in pride and disrespect.  But, My desire for you is to always walk in the Spirit and to respond to others with kindness and consideration, says the Lord.  I want your heart to be an extension of My heart.  Proverbs 15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.

November 20, 2015:  You have faced difficulty and uncertainty in your transition into this new season, but now things will smooth out somewhat as you are able to see more clearly the path that you are on.  Resist every temptation to be afraid of what the future will bring.  Stay present with Me, says the Lord.  Trust and obey!  Psalms 9:10 And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.

November 23, 2015:  Even though these are uncertain times, you can be certain about My Kingdom, says the Lord.  My Word and promises are true and will never change.  You can move forward with the certainty that I will direct your steps because you trust in Me.  Know that I am with you.  2 Corinthians 1:20 For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.

November 24, 2015:  If you can position yourself to be in the flow of My Spirit, you will experience a time of great grace.  It will be a time of favor and acceptance, which affords joy, pleasure, sweetness and delight.  However, you must release yourself from all worry and fear and forgive those who have wronged you in any way.  Be free so that you can enjoy this time of grace, says the Lord.  1 Corinthians 1:3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

November 25, 2015:  Refuse to allow chaos to steal your peace and ability to stay in order.  There is a spiritual storm raging all around you, but you can be free and stay above it by recognizing and refusing to be a part of it, says the Lord.  Your place of refuge is in Me; I am your safe harbor, a port in any storm.  Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.

November 26, 2015:  I see many of you, My people, trying to manage life instead of letting life flow through you.  I would have you relax and trust Me that I am with you; leading and directing you.  There is too much emphasis on human perfection and not enough on staying in the flow of My Spirit, says the Lord.  Let go and let Me.  Psalms 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

November 27, 2015:  Establish yourself in humble and sincere worship, and you will see Me and experience My presence as never before.  There is a place of entry that requires righteousness and complete surrender.  Come to Me in Spirit without fleshly desires or concerns.  Come into the holy place where you can be refreshed, says the Lord.  Acts 3:19 "Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord."

November 30, 2015:  I have created you to be creative.  Watch for extraordinary opportunities to create in ways that are out-of-the-box or beyond your normal concept of creativity.  Let Me expand your awareness to see and enjoy doing things that you have not considered until now, says the Lord.  2 Thessalonians 1:12 that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

DECEMBER 2015

December 1, 2015:  Surrender yourself completely to Me, says the Lord.  I want to bring you to a new and higher spiritual level where you can begin to see with clear perspective.  From this place your life will be a process of unfolding step by step as I go before you to prepare the way for My purposes to not only be revealed but demonstrated in your life.  Put your trust in Me.  Isaiah 45:2   I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron.

December 2, 2015:  In a vision I saw a very great multitude of broken people, and I could feel God's work of repairing and bringing to perfection each individual who asked Him for help.  It was a deep, spiritual work for everyone who made an effort to come into His presence and extend even the smallest amount of faith.  It was a profound and abiding work.  Powerful!  Luke 11:10 "For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened."

December 3, 2015:  Put forth every effort to maintain efficacy.  There are forces at work to take you off course.  You must be awake and have a plan that will keep you from spiritual decline.  Stand your ground and refuse to allow the enemy to derail your faith, says the Lord.  Set your will to stay focused.  1 Thessalonians 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.

December 4, 2015:  Cast down every thought that rises up to bring you into condemnation, and then position yourself under the protection and strength of spiritual truth.  These thoughts against yourself are counterproductive to your spiritual growth and well-being.  If there is truly a need to repent do so, but do not allow yourself to get stuck in things of the past.  What's done is done, says the Lord.  1 John 3:20 For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.

December 7, 2015:  I am calling to you to be good stewards of what I have put into your hands--all that I have given you responsibility over.  Righteousness is of the utmost importance as you handle everything with the understanding that it all belongs to Me, says the Lord.  Let integrity be the ruling factor in all of your dealings.  1 Corinthians 4:2  Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.

December 8, 2015:  It is time to prioritize again by putting first things first.  The most important factor in your life is your spiritual condition--your relationship with Me.  Do not neglect, even for a moment, spiritual connection.  When you stay connected everything else will fall into place in divine order, says the Lord, because I will lead you and direct your steps.  Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

December 9, 2015:  In a vision I found myself in a familiar spiritual landscape.  I had been there before.  I saw a  flock of sheep huddled together under an overhanging rock.  Their Shepherd was playing a flute to keep them calm in the midst of a storm, and their hearts were at peace because they trusted Him to keep them safe as He had done so many times in the past.  They did not fear.  And, I heard the Lord say, "Come to Me, and I will keep you in peace and safety."  John 10:14  I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.

December 10, 2015:  Many of you, My people, have allowed fear to creep in and overtake you.  You must quiet your fears and come to Me for assurance that I am your protector.  When you do not know what to do, ask, and I will assuredly impart wisdom and guidance.  I will lead you in the way you should go.  Be calm and trust Me to do what I have promised, says the Lord.  2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

December 11, 2015:  I am transforming you into My image, says the Lord.  You are no longer only a natural being; you are supernatural because My Spirit dwells in you.  Yield to this work of transformation by seeing yourself as spiritually and eternally Mine.  Remember that you are a pilgrim passing through your time on the earth, but you are forever a citizen in My kingdom.  Live like you believe it.  Philippians 3:20-21 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.

December 14, 2015:  Changes are still taking place as you get ready to experience the benefits and challenges of the season ahead of you.  Things that you face at this time will prepare you, but you must pay attention to what you can learn from the lessons presented by your circumstances, says the Lord.  Discernment is your friend.  Matthew 11:29 "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."

December 15, 2015:  You are about to enter a new phase of existence, but there are things that need to be finished before you can forge ahead.  Make the best use of your time and opportunities to deal with issues that would hinder you in the future, says the Lord.  I will give you discernment, wisdom, and guidance to do all that is necessary.  Isaiah 45:2 I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron.

December 16, 2015:  When chaos threatens to destroy your peace, you must resist and simplify.  Complications provide ground for confusion and double-mindedness.  Strive to maintain clarity in all things and avoid misunderstandings.  Take a position of honesty and be forthright, says the Lord.  Psalms 34:14 Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it.

December 17, 2015:  Things will come to light that will require an adjustment in your thoughts and plans.  Make these adjustments with the grace that I provide.  My grace will keep you in a place of righteousness and safety as the new season unfolds before you.  You will not regret your position of integrity, says the Lord.  Romans 6:16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?

December 18, 2015:  Take an inventory of your mental and spiritual condition.  You are still in the simplify-and-fortify process as change continues to position you for My highest and best.  Make an honest assessment of what is important to you, and adjust your priorities so that you truly seek first My kingdom, says the Lord.  Matthew 6:31-33 "Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."

December 21, 2015:  For those of you who have been absolutely obedient to do all that I have asked of you in recent days and weeks, I am coming to you to reward you.  I will open the heavens and pour out My glory upon you in ways that you would never have considered, says the Lord.  Watch and be amazed. 
Isaiah 40:10   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.

December 22, 2015:  Let go of your insecurities and fear of lack.  If you will do this, I will lead you into a new phase of prosperity that you have not imagined.  This will be beyond the natural realm and will take you into spiritual provision, which will bring peace and delight, says the Lord.  Psalm 50:10-12 For every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills.  I know all the birds of the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are Mine.  If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world is Mine, and all its fullness.

December 23, 2015:  Be one with Me in spirit, mind, and action.  In this unity everything will be put in perfect order with a sense of empowerment and purity, and every cell and atom of your being will come into perfect alignment.  That which is destined to destruction will be done away with.  That which is destined to fire will be purified.  That which is destined to peace will be established in peace.  Surrender completely Me, says the Lord.  I reign supreme.  Psalms 146:10 The LORD shall reign forever—Your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD!

December 24, 2015:  I am calling you to know true freedom, which is the result of no guile, no control or manipulation, no unreasonable expectations, and no spiritual clutter.  I want you to be unencumbered and free enough to trust Me completely.  This is the beginning of a new era of righteousness and purity, says the Lord.  Psalm 32:2  2 Blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

December 25, 2015:  Regroup and prepare to move forward.  Distractions have been endless, but now you must begin to refocus with a sense of purpose and direction.  Be done with everything that has gotten you off track.  The days are treacherous and require you to pay attention so you can hear My voice and obey My leading, says the Lord.   1 Peter 4:17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?

December 28, 2015:  Keep pressing through to complete freedom from bondage.  In order to do that you must first see and understand what is holding you in bondage and then do the work necessary to extricate yourself.  I speak in spiritual terms, but there also may be things you need to do in the natural realm, says the Lord.  Romans 6:16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?

December 29, 2015:  Significant changes have taken place that affect you.  Instead of looking back with remorse, set your heart to move forward with a sense of hope and purpose.  There are things that you need to understand and accomplish.  Position yourself for progression, says the Lord.  1 Timothy 4:15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.

December 30, 2015:  Prepare yourself for a brand new day.  The slate has been wiped clean, and you can make every day pristine.  I will show you the way, says the Lord.  Stay present with Me by not thinking too far ahead or dwelling on the past, and refuse to allow fear to overshadow your hope and trust in Me.  Revelation 19:6b  "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!"

December 31, 2015:  Many of you, My people, allow extraneous thoughts to clutter your mind and cloud your judgment.  It is important for you to stay focused on what really matters in your life by taking control of your thought process, says the Lord.  You know the difference between right and wrong.  Right thinking causes right doing.  2 Corinthians 10:4-6  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.
