NOVEMBER 2019

November 29, 2019:  Beloved, when you feel devalued or underestimated, know that you are important to Me, says the Lord. Know that I love you and will love you for all of eternity. You are not a disappointment. You are a unique treasure. Spend time with Me and be convinced of your eternal value. 1 Peter 2:4 Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious.

November 28, 2019:  Spiritual portals are beginning to open that will allow you, My people, to make substantial progress both spiritual and naturally. You must, however, make sure that you are well balanced and sensible to make the best use of these opportunities. This will require your diligence in quieting your emotions and standing firmly on the foundation of truth, says the Lord. Psalm 40:11 Do not withhold Your tender mercies from me, O Lord; let Your lovingkindness and Your truth continually preserve me.

November 27, 2019:  Many of you have persevered through dark days. You have pressed on even when you didn't feel like doing so. You have been strong and unwavering in your faith and have continued to trust Me. You have picked yourself up when no one was there to pick you up. You have strengthened yourself and been courageous in the face of correction. You will be rewarded, says the Lord.  Hebrews 12:11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

November 26, 2019:  Be aware that the enemy will attack you where you are most vulnerable. Refuse to allow him to make you feel unloved and rejected. Stand against every demonic attack. Do not believe his lies, says the Lord. Know that I love you and will never leave you nor forsake you. You can count on that! Hebrews 13:5 Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you."

November 25, 2019:  If you look for Me, you will find Me. If you look deep within you know where to go and what you need to do to get there. I have not hidden Myself away so that your search will be unfruitful. I want to connect with you in every way possible. I want to be your friend and companion always, says the Lord. John 14:5-6 Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?" Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."

November 24:  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 22, 2019:  When you feel like you are being pulled in a dozen directions, it is time to be quiet and enter My presence, says the Lord. There is no competition, pressure or chaos in the Spirit and nothing to drag you down. In this place you can be built up and strengthened. You will find the confidence and assurance you need to move forward. Come and unite your heart with Mine. Psalm 86:11 Teach me Your way, O Lord; I will walk in Your truth; unite my heart to fear Your name.

November 21, 2019:  Stir yourself and wake up. Some of you represent only a shadow of your former zeal to serve Me and defeat the enemy. I have not changed. I am looking throughout the whole earth to find those who are faithful to do all that is necessary to stand against hatred and vitriol. I seek those who will express love and care for all, says the Lord. John 15:12 "This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you."

November 20, 2019:  Your eyes and ears are the inroads to your soul. Much of what is presented to you can cause you to be disheartened. You must protect yourself by monitoring what you are willing to see and hear. Refuse to allow your soul to be hijacked by negativity. Let Me infuse you with hope, strength, and new life. Set your heart to know Me more  intimately, says the Lord. Psalm 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

November 19, 2019:  Feed on My word. Fill your heart, mind and soul with that which nurtures spiritual life. You are Mine.  You belong to Me. Be filled with the knowledge of My kingdom, and let your desire to be one with Me override your flesh and worldly cravings, says the Lord. Allow eternal perspective to dominate your lifestyle. Psalm 37:3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.

November 18, 2019:  Mark this day as a new beginning. In many ways things will be similar, but you will also experience changes that will further define you. You will not lose anything you count as dear, but you will gain so much more than you could now imagine. Be faithful in all that I have revealed to you for the days ahead, says the Lord. Luke 16:10a "He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much."

November 17:  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 15, 2019:  Make sure that you do not treat your life in the Spirit as an elective or optional activity. You can do nothing meaningful and eternal apart from a deep, abiding connection with Me, says the Lord. When you know Me through spiritual relationship, the fruit will be evident. You will be forever changed. John 15:4 "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me."

November 14, 2019:  You are still in a transitional time between the ending of the last spiritual season and the beginning of a new one. It is a time of self-examination and preparation for what is ahead. Many yearn for outward change, but the change has to begin internally. There are things to consider and decisions to be made before you can see any measurable difference in your circumstances. Yield to the working of My Spirit to reshape and transform you, says the Lord. Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

November 13, 2019:  Fight to stay right. The enemy will do his best to get you off track so you must continue to live and walk in the Spirit. It will take effort on your part to be strong spiritually without distraction, but it will be worth the work. Make relationship with Me your top priority, says the Lord. Your reward will be eternal. 1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

November 12, 2019:  When you invest more in your temporary life on earth than you do in eternity you are being short-sighted. Make your call and election sure by focusing on what matters forever. Set your sights higher, and seek to know Me. There are many things that can distract you, says the Lord. Stay focused. 2 Peter 9-11 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

November 11, 2019:  I will show Myself strong on behalf of those who want to know Me and seek My help. Ask and you will receive, but you must ask being fully convinced that I will hear and answer you. Put all doubt and fear far from you, and be confident in My presence and power to anoint you for victory, says the Lord. Exercise your strong faith. 1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

November 10:  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 8, 2019:  Be done with self-deprecation. You cannot do anything about the past, but you can seek Me for wisdom and guidance for the days ahead. Learn from past mistakes and experiences and be led by My Spirit as you progress. Know that I am with you, 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.

November 7, 2019:  You are in a spiritual pause. If you do not discern this time properly, you will decide that you are either stuck or stagnant. However, this is a time of reflection when you can review and make corrections to your course of action. It is vital that you make relationship with Me your first priority, says the Lord. Nothing is more important than your walk in the Spirit. Then, I can give you the wisdom you need and direct your steps. Galatians 5:16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

November 6, 2019:  You have heard it said that you can't see the forest for the trees, and I say to you that you must not lose sight of your long-term goal of eternal life in the kingdom of heaven while at the same time taking the necessary steps to serve Me in righteousness daily. The battle that you face comes one step at a time, one day at a time, until you reach your goal, says the Lord. Stay focused.  Stay close. 1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

November 5, 2019:  When everything around you seems to be in chaos, you must seek peace and pursue it. Settle yourself by knowing that I am with you, and I will give you the wisdom necessary to take the next step. I am your shelter and place of safety and security. But you must believe it and choose to lean on Me in times of trouble, says the Lord. Deuteronomy 33:27 The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, ‘Destroy!’

November 4, 2019:  There is a separation taking place. You will either experience a further detachment from the world or from your walk in the Spirit.  This will be subtle, so you must pay attention to the desires of your heart. The things you think about and focus on will give you a clue as to the direction you are taking. Solidifying your commitment to Me at this time would be of great benefit to you, says the Lord. Joshua 24:15 "And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

November 3:  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.  Psalm 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 1, 2019:  Make every effort to walk in spiritual reality. Deception abounds, and very often things are not what they seem. Staying in truth will take extraordinary awareness because there are evil forces at work to interfere and take you off course, says the Lord. Wisdom and awareness come when you quiet your soul and seek My presence. Isaiah 32:17-18 The work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.

OCTOBER 2019

October 31, 2019:  Your desire to exhibit kindness toward others does not include tolerating evil. You must protect your heart and mind from all manner of evil. Turn away from things that do not emanate from My Spirit both externally and internally. Make every effort to be righteous in all things, says the Lord. Ephesians 4:29-30 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

October 30, 2019:  The current spiritual theme is one of more intense internal work, revelation, and cleansing as transformation into My image continues. You are in process, but you have not yet arrived. You must be honest with yourself so that you can see where you have deviated from your Kingdom position. It has been a subtle departure, justified by circumstances, but a departure nonetheless. Now is the time to find your way to the place of intimacy with Me, says the Lord. Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

October 29, 2019:  In a vision I saw dozens if not hundreds of snakes coming out from under rocks and hiding places. They were fleeing and it seemed as though they could not go fast enough. I sought the Lord about this vision, and I believe we are entering a time of deliverance where God's people will no longer allow evil to lurk in hidden places.  It is time for us to rise up against darkness in ourselves and not give place for the devil. Ephesians 4:26-27 "Be angry, and do not sin": do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil.

October 28, 2019:  It is time for you to buckle down and get serious about what you have been called to do. Refuse the temptation to be lazy and just get by spiritually. You will have plenty of opportunities to give up or quit altogether, but know that it is more important than ever to stay the course, says the Lord. Seek Me for refreshment.  Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

October 27:  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.  Psalm 17:8  Keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me under the shadow of Your wings.

October 25, 2019:  Stand strong in the face of adversity. Rely on Me to strengthen and support you in all that is before you. I will give you the grace to fulfill your purpose in My kingdom, says the Lord. I am looking throughout the whole earth to find those who will serve Me without reservation; those who are fearless in the face of difficulty and hardship. Psalm 91:5-7 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.

October 24, 2019:  Many of you will experience small breakthroughs instead of one huge one. There will be a series of minor changes as you tweak the various aspects of your life. I will show you how to make the most of what you have been given to do as you become more productive with less effort, says the Lord. Psalms 51:6 Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, and in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.

October 23, 2019:  Settle yourself and be reminded that I am your solid foundation. I see and know your concerns and the things that make you afraid, but your trust in Me will sweep away all insecurities. Fear has no more substance than a cobweb to be swept away. Truth will bring peace, 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.

October 22, 2019:  A new day is dawning; the old order is passing away, and the new order is being established. You must be open and flexible to allow My will to be accomplished in your life and circumstances. Be sensitive to My leading, for I will give you instructions about positioning yourself to move forward in divine order and in the perfect flow of My Spirit, says the Lord. Do not be afraid! Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

October 21, 2019:  Do not forget that I am your partner and that My still, small voice will reveal to you all that you need to know. I will give wisdom and guidance. I will direct your steps and show you that which is important to Me, says the Lord. Remember that I delight in you because you value My word and pay attention to what I have to tell you. Luke 11:28 But He said, "More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!"

October 20:  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.  Psalm 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 18, 2019:  Even though things seem difficult now, My promises to you are still viable. Don't give up hope. Look to Me for answers and for health and strength to endure. You are not a piece of garbage to be discarded; you are precious to Me, and I will make a straight path before you that will take you to the next phase of your life. Stay connected to My Spirit, says the Lord. 1 Peter 2:9 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.

October 17, 2019:  Some of you are feeling unsettled and vulnerable. Take the time and make the effort to examine why you are feeling this way. Check to see if you have gotten distracted from your walk with Me or whether you may have entertained a spirit of fear. Then, make the necessary adjustments to get back on track. When you are on track spiritually, you will be led in the way you should go, 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.

October 16, 2019:  Remember who you are in Me.  Be filled with thoughts of hope and faith, for negativity will serve no purpose in your life.  Adjust your attitudes and motives so that you can reflect the goodness of My kingdom, says the Lord.  Then, you will begin to reap the rewards of peace.  You belong to Me; you are My offspring.  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.

October 15, 2019:  Your environment is becoming increasingly complex, and it is easy to get bogged down with things you do not know or understand.  Remember that I am greater than the world's complexities.  I am all-knowing and all-seeing, and I can guide you through every intricate and complicated situation or process.  I will give you the wisdom you need, but you must ask, says the Lord.  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.

October 14, 2019:  The theme of this new spiritual year is generosity.  As you progress in this new season, you will have opportunities to give in a variety of ways.  You can help financially or give your time and energy to benefit those who need assistance.  You can also demonstrate kindness in every situation, says the Lord.  What you do will establish your spiritual environment.  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."

October 13:  You have begun to reap the harvest from what was sown during the beginning of the season that is ending.  Some will experience great favor and benefit while others will endure hardship.  Others will fall somewhere between those two extremes.  This is a time when you would do well to learn the lessons of the harvest, says the Lord.  Matthew 13:23 "But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty."

October 11, 2019:  Walk in the light of truth and be done with all darkness, that is all things that you would not want others to know. Let My light reveal and cleanse you from all evil. Become truly righteous by walking and living in the Spirit. Yield yourself to Me and become one with Me, says the Lord. Luke 8:16-17 "No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a vessel or puts it under a bed, but sets it on a lampstand, that those who enter may see the light. For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light."

October 10, 2019:  I will give you unexpected opportunities to release things from the past that have kept you in subtle bondage. You will now be able to see your way to complete freedom. For some, this will be a place of idolatry where you have idealized a person, place or thing that represents happiness and perfection. Let it go and be liberated, says the Lord. 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 9, 2019:  Will you go for Me?  Will you be My hands, My heart and My mouth?  If you are willing, I will send you to do things that are beyond selfish desire and beyond human endeavor.  What I ask of you will require a generous heart and a willingness to express kindness even in the most abhorrent situations.  You will not initiate these acts of benevolence; I will, says the Lord.  Colossians 3:12-13 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.

October 8, 2019:  In a vision I saw a big eye.  And, I heard the Lord say, "I am looking to and fro throughout the whole earth to find those who are dedicated to serving Me, those who sincerely put Me first in their lives.  For, I will pour out My grace in abundance on those whose hearts are steadfast and faithful."  2 Chronicles 16:9 "For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.

October 7, 2019:  Make every effort to draw near to Me, says the Lord. The days are treacherous, and you will need to concentrate on things of the Spirit so that you are not sucked into a deep hole of deception. When you come close to Me, I will show you both truth and error. I will protect your mind and heart.  Ephesians 5:14-17 Therefore He says: "Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light." See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

October 6:  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 4, 2019:  If you quiet your soul, you will sense a subtle shift in your spiritual environment. This delicate change is one of hope and well-being. It is not an in-your-face change; you will have to be still and heighten your awareness of My work, says the Lord. You cannot see if you do not look, nor can you hear if you do not listen. Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

October 3, 2019:  As you watch in amazement the absurdities of life, you must be reasonable. Do not allow the ridiculous things you see affect your sense of stability and purpose. Remember that you are established on a firm foundation of faith in Me, says the Lord. Be strong by continuing to build on spiritual truth. Matthew 7:24-25 "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock."

October 2, 2019:  It is My desire that you seek to be at peace with yourself, with others, and with Me, says the Lord. It is very difficult to accomplish anything worthwhile and lasting when you are unsettled and in turmoil. It is imperative for you to establish yourself in a place of tranquility if you want to truly live in freedom.  1 Peter 3:10-12 For "He who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit. Let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayers; but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."

October 1, 2019: This is the beginning of a season of adjustments, some of which will be very subtle, difficult to analyze or describe.  Internal work will be at the core of these changes as you become more acutely aware of your motivations and attitudes.  In the process of being transformed into My image, you will experience intense times of purification, says the Lord.  Yield to this work of My Spirit.  Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

 

SEPTEMBER 2019

September 30, 2019:  Prepare to receive the fulfillment of special promises.  I have spoken to you and given you signs of what you can expect.  Hold those things close to your heart while you wait for their manifestation.  When discouragement and doubt come, renew yourself in My commitment to your future, says the Lord.  I am vitally interested in your success.  2 Corinthians 7:1 Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

September 29:  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 27, 2019:  Listen and look closely, for I am going to reveal aspects of your life that will give you direction and guidance.  I will give you a glimpse of the future, but you must maintain your current position so that you do not get ahead of Me, says the Lord.  I will lead you on the right path at the right time.  There are things that you must face here and now before moving ahead.  Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

September 26, 2019:  I speak to those who have been spread too thin by having too many demands on your time and energy. You are feeling scattered and unable to have time for yourself or with Me, says the Lord. You would do well to reorganize your priorities and make necessary adjustments so that you can be more focused on things that really matter. Matthew 11:28 "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

September 25, 2019:  Prepare yourself for the new spiritual year. There are issues that need to be resolved. You must deliberately leave behind everything that will potentially hinder your freedom to progress. Look at this time as truly a new beginning, a clean slate and a time of unrealized opportunities, says the Lord.  Luke 3:4 as it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying: The voice of one crying in the wilderness: "Prepare the way of the Lord; make His paths straight."

September 24, 2019:  What you say is important. Be sure to get your heart right and in line with the word of truth before you speak. Bitterness of soul will not only defile you, but will defile those you express your frustrations and anger to. You are designed to be a representative of My kingdom on the earth. Let the words of your mouth always glorify your heavenly Father.  Luke 6:45 "A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks."

September 23, 2019:  It is My desire that you access greater power in the Spirit, but you must go higher. Watch for things that will keep you bound to the past, for you must let them go. You cannot live in the past and embrace new beginnings.  There are many spiritual delights awaiting you. Prepare yourself for spiritual expansion, 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.

September 22: 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 20, 2019:  An antichrist spirit has been released over the land to bring a new round of condemnation to My people. The attack will be against your soul by way of reminder of the things in your life that bring the deepest shame. Do not allow this attack to demoralize you, but remember that you have repented, and you have been forgiven, 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.

September 19, 2019:  Be aware that you could find yourself in a situation where you can represent spiritual reality in a way that is very appealing. This will not necessarily be in words, but will definitely be portrayed by your attitudes, responses, and actions. You will exhibit the true nature of My witness, says the Lord.  You may not reach the masses, but you will reach hearts that are hungry for truth. 1 John 3:18-19 My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.

September 18, 2019:  Refuse to settle for less than your capacity to develop spiritual awareness. You are living below your potential. It takes concentrated effort and focus to live and walk in the Spirit, says the Lord. Your desires must be honed to seek all things pertaining to My kingdom rather than things of the earth. 2 Peter 1:2-4 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

September 17, 2019:  Many of you have been in a fog spiritually. It has been difficult to find your way or stay on track. But I am telling you honestly that the fog is beginning to lift. Things that have been shrouded in darkness will be revealed. Your path will be illuminated before you, and clarity will come. Prepare yourself with the expectation of greater light and clearer direction, says the Lord.  Psalm 18:28 For You will light my lamp; the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.

September 16, 2019:  You are in the process of spiritual transformation, which sometimes seems to be cruel and unusual punishment. However, I would have you remember the caterpillar as it progresses through the stages of transformation to become a butterfly. Would you stop short of your potential because of the difficult process?  You have a purpose and destiny to achieve, says the Lord. You have not yet been perfected.  Continue on!  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.

September 15:  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 13, 2019:  Do not take yourself too seriously.  The Spirit is like a flowing river or like the wind, which  moves regardless what you do.  If you try to be bigger and more powerful than the river or the wind, you are taking on responsibility that does not belong to you.  My desire is for you to yield and flow with the moving of My Spirit.  Let Me take you on the journey of My choosing, says the Lord.  John 3:8 "The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."

September 12, 2019:  The Holy Spirit in the people of God is urging us to reach higher to know more intimately the truth of God’s calling and purpose. We cannot be satisfied with what we have known in the past. We must go up. We must go to the Potter's House to be made again into a better vessel—one more perfect, one stronger, one more useful. We are willing, Lord, to be transformed.  Jeremiah 18:3-4 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel.  And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.

September 11, 2019:  If you feel lost or irrelevant you need to know that you are in transition. You are in the process of moving into a new season as things of the past months are fading away in preparation for what is ahead. Take a moment to reflect on what seemed to be failures to see what you can learn, and rejoice in your victories. Prepare to redirect and focus your attention on the next phase of existence. Philippians 3:13-14 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, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

September 10, 2019:  You will soon find a solution to that which has been your primary concern. Know that when you release your worries to Me you can let go. Your faith is only activated when you leave the results to Me, says the Lord. I am capable of finding the best possible answer to your dilemma. Trust Me.  Psalm 138:8 The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.

September 9, 2019:  Settle down on the rock-solid spiritual foundation that I have provided for you. Many of My people are flighty and are moved by every wind of thought and idea without being grounded in truth and purpose. You would do well to establish yourself and build on that which has eternal value. In doing that, you must look beyond temporary investments of your time and energy as well as the things that comfort your fleshly desires and walk in the Spirit, says the Lord.  Matthew 7:24-27 Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.

September 8: Rise above all chaos and turmoil, and enter into peace.  Even when your circumstances place many demands on your time and energy, you can do all that is necessary and still maintain tranquility.  However, you will have to be focused and stay calm to receive the wisdom you need to get through the changes that this season brings, says the Lord.  Philippians 4:7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

September 6, 2019:  Beloved, when circumstances get frustrating, take a deep breath and get quiet. Things will smooth out again, but you must refuse to be upset or annoyed.  Slow down and give others the benefit of the doubt. Exercise patience and your ability to be kind and understanding, says the Lord.  Matthew 7:12a Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them.

September 5, 2019:  Seeds of generosity that you sow at My behest will reap an extraordinary harvest of favor, grace, and prosperity. Give with an open heart and without expectation of gratitude or reciprocation. Be My hand extended and take no credit for yourself, says the Lord. Only then will you reap the benefits of kindness. 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 4, 2019:  There are things that I have yet to reveal to you that will cause you to grow spiritually and build on the firm foundation of your faith. Life as usual will take a turn, and I will direct you in ways that will improve your health and well-being.  You will be able to look back at this time in awe of My care for you, says the Lord.  Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

September 3, 2019:  I am going to use you in ways that you did not expect. Get ready to do all that I ask, says the Lord. It may not make sense, but your common sense is not always compatible with that which is spiritual, says the Lord. I want you to be a representative of My will and purposes on the earth. Be ready to move with the leading of My Spirit. Proverbs 7:24 Now therefore, listen to me, my children; pay attention to the words of my mouth.

September 2, 2019:  Remember the days when I asked you, My people, to simplify and fortify?  That message still holds, but now I want you to apply that simplicity to accessing My Spirit, says the Lord.  It comes down to four easy steps.  Shut out distractions.  Get quiet both externally and internally.  Find Me.  Stay focused by bringing your mind back when it wanders.  Proverbs 8:17  I love those who love Me, and those who seek Me diligently will find Me.

September 1:  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.

AUGUST 2019

August 30, 2019:  Beloved, allow Me to work through your compassion to encourage others. You are living in a harsh and unforgiving environment. But you can reach out to uplift and support others who are struggling. Allow My generosity to be expressed through you, says the Lord, and it will become a seed sown in good soil that will produce a bountiful harvest. 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."

August 29, 2019:  To those who believe they have made too many mistakes to be loved and cherished, I say that you are redeemable.  Just come to Me.  I will forgive you.  Come and seek to know Me, and you will be transformed.  Do not give up hope.  You are precious in My sight, says the Lord.  Jeremiah 18:2-4 "Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear My words." Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.

August 28, 2019:  Go deep within your spirit to make a solid connection with Me, says the Lord.  Skimming the surface of religious life will no longer do.  It is time for you to deepen your commitment to know and be one with Me.  My promises are for those who have given themselves wholly and belong to Me.  2 Peter 1:2-4 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

August 27, 2019:  I heard in my spirit the words quiet resolve. Then, the exhortation from the Lord: There are circumstances and situations that have shaken your soul. However, do not allow anyone or anything to cause you to waver in your faith in Me. Stand strong and unwavering. Strengthen your determination to come through this time victoriously.  I will uphold you with My power.  Deuteronomy 33:27 The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, ‘Destroy!’

August 26, 2019:  Step away from the whirlwind of emotions, thoughts, and activities that have consumed you. All of your fretting was time lost. Reset and reorder your priorities. Settle down and focus on your spiritual existence. Yield to the internal work that must be done before you can completely align with My will and purposes, says the Lord. Set your heart to know Me.  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.

August 25:  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 23, 2019:   Seek and believe for freedom from bondage, and I will break the bonds that have held you. It is My will for you to be free. The whole world is laboring under the weight of darkness, but you are My offspring.  You are children of the light and spiritual freedom.  Liberation will bring exhilaration, says the Lord. 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 22, 2019: Times of transition are not just intervals of silence and waiting for the next thing. They present opportunities in which you can evaluate where you are spiritually and naturally. Without this evaluation, you will make the same mistakes again and again. The ultimate goal is to be changed and transformed from living your life according to your carnal nature into life in the Spirit.  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.

August 21, 2019:  Issues that you have been struggling with can now be settled. As you quiet your thoughts and emotions you will see the spiritual work that has been done in your life through this process. There are things you would not have understood about yourself without the challenges you have faced. The time is coming for a fresh start.  Be sure that your next steps are devoid of defilement and regret, says the Lord.  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 20, 2019:  When it seems as though you have been far away it is because the world atmosphere is becoming more polluted both spiritually and naturally. When it is harder for you to get in the Spirit, you must dig deeper and reach higher than you ever have before. Break through the interference to the place where we can commune and where peace abounds, says the Lord.  Seek and you will find!  Acts 17:26-28a "And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being."

August 19, 2019:  Even though your challenges have been daunting, you will now get into your stride once again and gain the victory.  Take a moment to realize the value of what you endured.  There is a certain satisfaction that comes from knowing you can call on Me in times of trouble and I will answer, says the Lord.  Your faith and resolve are stronger than ever.  Deuteronomy 31:6 "Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you."

August 18:  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 16, 2019:  Examine yourself to see and know if your spiritual foundation is firm. Your foundation is your belief that I am alive, that I know you, and will help you navigate your life on earth, says the Lord. You become weak when you feel like you are alone in the world without guidance. Check yourself to see if you stand on the solid foundation of faith in Me. 2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? —unless indeed you are disqualified. 

August 15, 2019:  Righteousness is a choice.  Personal conviction will establish a base for understanding that which needs to be done to overcome wrong attitudes and motives. You have made a lot of progress in spiritual growth, but there is more work to do. As you live and walk in the Spirit, a deeper level of internal work will enable you to prevail over evil, says the Lord.  Come near to Me with an open heart and mind and I will give revelation. Romans 16:19 For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil.

August 14, 2019:  This is a time when you can make great leaps forward. Your spiritual growth will increase exponentially. Set your will to cooperate with this move of My Spirit in your life. Set your expectations on Me, says the Lord, and not on world systems and conditions.  This opportunity will depend on where you focus your thoughts, intentions and desires. Luke 12:34 "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." 

August 13, 2019:  In a vision I could see columns of fire surrounding me that would keep the enemy at bay. And I heard the Lord say, "This is the fire of the Spirit, My power, that will defeat the devil.  Above all you need the fire of My Spirit to do all that I call you to do in the days ahead.  I will empower you to do all that I have set before you to accomplish.  Have no regrets.  No fear.  No dread.  No weakness.  Rise up and let the fire of the Spirit consume your carnal nature."  Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

August 12, 2019:  Prepare to go through the gates that I am opening before you, says the Lord.  You have not been this way before, so you must be sensitive to My leading.  Listen carefully as I speak to your heart and give you the wisdom necessary for you  to move into the next phase of your life and being.  I will direct your steps.  Isaiah 62:10  Go through, Go through the gates! Prepare the way for the people; Build up, Build up the highway! Take out the stones, Lift up a banner for the peoples!

August 11:  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 9, 2019:  Because of life's circumstances and pressures, it will be easy to overreact and go beyond a reasonable response.  These times require a healthy dose of self-control so that you do not go too far in the wrong direction.  You would do well to carefully consider a correct and sensible reaction to every situation, says the Lord. 2 Peter 1:5-7  But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.

August 8, 2019:  Seriously consider where you have been and where you are now spiritually.  Be done with the distractions that have accompanied the challenges you have faced and come closer to Me, says the Lord. Take the necessary steps that will actually position you to achieve victory, says the Lord.  Philippians 3:12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.

August 7, 2019:  The difficulties that you face will be easily overcome as long as you put your faith and hope in Me, says the Lord.  Continue to seek Me and deliberately come into My presence to acquire help and guidance.  I Am your Living God.  I am not a story from long ago or a Sunday-school fable.  Come and partner with Me in all that you do, says the Lord.  Psalm 84:2 My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.

August 6, 2019:  You have come to a turning point where that which has concerned you is coming to a conclusion. As one chapter ends a new one begins. You can now evaluate the past season with objectivity to see what you might have done differently. This should not be a time of condemnation, but one of reflection and instruction. Take this opportunity to grow, says the Lord. Proverbs 27:19 As in water face reflects face, so a man’s heart reveals the man.

August 5, 2019:  Alignment is an important factor in your well-being. Spiritually it is important to be aligned with My Word of truth and with the leading of My Spirit. It is also vital to be aligned emotionally and mentally with righteous thoughts and intentions. And, if you do not sustain physical alignment you can experience weakness in your body. Your vitality in all areas will depend on maintaining a close relationship with Me, says the Lord. Psalm 139:14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.

August 4:  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 2, 2019:  Sometimes I say Yes; sometimes I say No; sometimes I say Whoa. It is up to you to develop your discernment and a hearing ear, which takes practice. Spend the time and make the effort to have a relationship with My Holy Spirit so that you can see and hear in the realm of the spirit, says the Lord. Luke 11:13 "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!"

August 1, 2019:  You have been in a long season of setting things straight and of fixing that which needed attention.  That season is coming to a close.  There are still issues that need to be addressed before you can truly move on.  Be diligent to do all that is necessary in order to sufficiently close the book on the past.  Prepare to enter your new spiritual year with a clean slate, 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.

JULY 2019

July 31, 2019:  To those who feel stuck either spiritually or naturally, I am going to make a way for you to take a positive step in extrication.  You must settle down and quiet yourself so that you do not miss even the slightest opportunity to make a change.  I am sending a wave of compassion and mercy, and you will know that you are not alone and that I have not forgotten you, says the Lord.  Psalm 86:15 But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.

July 30, 2019:  Wisdom is what you need.  You are navigating a fairly narrow channel, but the depth of your challenge requires more understanding than you can access from past experience.  You must rely on discernment and insight that can only come from My Spirit, says the Lord.  Ask in faith and wait with anticipation to receive what I will reveal to you.  James 1:5-6 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. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.

July 29, 2019:  Steady as she goes.  Move forward with strength and endurance without wavering.  You can achieve that which I have set before you.  I am with you to show you the way, and I have empowered you beyond your natural abilities, says the Lord.  Isaiah 60:1-2 Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.

July 28:  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.  Psalm 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 26, 2019:  You can make your plans and set your course, but you must hold them loosely.  Be willing to make adjustments as you go.  You do not know what the future holds but I do, says the Lord.  When you allow Me to give direction and guide you, you can expect the best outcome possible.  I am your hope and future, and I am with you.  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.

July 25, 2019:  Be still and stop worrying.  I will give you the answers that will solve difficult problems if you will let go of your own construct.  You have lots of good ideas, but there is only one sure-fire plan that will produce the desired outcome.  Let Me show you the way, says the Lord, and follow My leading.  Then, your journey will be successful.  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."

July 24, 2019:  What you do at this time will have extraordinary impact long term.  Consider your decisions and actions carefully so that the outcome will be beneficial to you and those around you.  This is no time to be impulsive or frivolous.  You will have the time and space to make a serious plan and follow through.  For many this will be a pivotal time of change.  Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

July 23, 2019:  In a vision I saw a train pulling away from the platform, and the Lord said that moving forward will be similar.  It will be slow at first and gain momentum with distance.  The same can be said for us spiritually and naturally until it is "full steam ahead", which is to proceed with as much energy and vitality as possible.  I had a sense of excitement in my spirit, knowing that we are being released into a new spiritual season.  Philippians 3:13-14 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, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

 July 22, 2019:  You will find that in many ways you have come full circle.  What you have done you are doing again except on a higher level of spiritual understanding and with greater emotional and mental resources.  Great benefit will come from remembering the lessons of similar times, says the Lord.  Apply what you learned from the past to this season.  Ecclesiastes 1:9 That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.

July 21:  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.  Psalm 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 19, 2019:  You have a few more hurdles or difficult circumstances ahead of you, but you are well able to deal with these issues with My help, says the Lord.  Depend on Me for wisdom.  Ask for direction and clarity, and I will give it.  This will be a time when you can learn to lean on Me and move with the flow of My Spirit more completely.  Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.

July 18, 2019:  Many of you, My people, have become victims of your self-imposed identity and are living below your potential.  When you live and walk in the Spirit, you can become the best version of yourself possible.  I will lead, guide, direct and protect you.  You can and will be victorious when you partner with Me, says the Lord.  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.

July 17, 2019:  If you quiet your soul and discern, you will know that you are on the leading edge of a new wave of spiritual growth and experience.  You will have opportunities to accomplish what has seemed to be impossible until now.  Be bold and confident that I will broaden your horizons and take you to new heights, says the Lord.  Let go of old, restrictive attitudes.  Psalm 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.

July 16, 2019:  You have heard it said that it is darkest before the dawn, but I tell you that it is always the darkest when you choose not to access My light and spiritual life.  That darkness will envelop and isolate you.  You must choose to take the first step that will extricate you from the deep darkness of despair and hopelessness.  You will find the light as you move towards Me, says the Lord.  Seek Me with your whole heart.  Isaiah 60:2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.

July 15, 2019:  To many who have lost your joy because you are overwhelmed with darkness and dissatisfaction, I say this to you:  It is time to lift yourself to new spiritual heights where you no longer think only about the miseries of life.  I want you to find a place of joy in the Spirit.  It is not My will that you live in despair without hope.  Put your faith and hope in Me, says the Lord.  Romans 14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

July 14:  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 12, 2019:  Refuse to allow disappointment to cloud your perspective.  Remember that assumption leads to disappointment, which fosters discouragement.  Stay on solid ground emotionally, mentally and spiritually by reserving judgment and giving others latitude.  Stay righteous by maintaining your own integrity in every circumstance, says the Lord.  Psalm 19:13 Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, and I shall be innocent of great transgression.

July 11, 2019:  You are not alone, nor are you on your own.  You have the Helper, My Spirit, who will interact with you where you are to guide and protect you.  You must not be afraid, but go forth with the assurance of supernatural preservation.  Stay in the shelter that has been provided for you, says the Lord. Psalm 91:5-9 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. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place.

July 10, 2019:  For months now, I have had a vision of a man in a mud bog.  He is covered from head to toe in thick, sticky mud as he struggles to get up and out on solid ground.  This vision speaks to me of the difficulty of spiritual progression.  Each time I see the mud man, he is closer to getting out of the bog.  We know that breakthrough is imminent, but not immediate.  And today, in the Spirit I heard the words "Patient Resilience."  I believe it means that we continue to tolerate difficulties without complaint as we stay strong and tough in our recovery and progression.  Colossians 1:10-12 that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.

July 9, 2019:  Check yourself as to whether or not you have lost ground.  You worked hard to get to the place I prepared for you, and you stood strong.  But you may have to examine the boundaries that you set and shore up the breaches.  Otherwise the gap will widen.  It will be easier to deal with now rather than waiting until later, says the Lord.  Stand strong!  1 Corinthians 16:13 Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.

July 8, 2019:  For those who are spiritually sensitive, you know that you have broken through the spiritual environment that has kept you from moving forward.  Many of you have felt stuck as though you cannot wake up from a dream.  But, now is the time to not only awaken, but to move forward.  I will take you on a journey that you would not even have imagined.  Prepare for progression, says the Lord.  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.

July 7:  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 5, 2019:  You, My people, have set a course of spiritual awareness and growth, and with your ultimate destination in mind do not deviate from the path before you.  It is easy to get distracted and forget the significance of each phase of your journey.  Every step is important; stay righteous and be focused, says the Lord.  Psalm 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

July 4, 2019:  You are beginning another season of intense internal work that will reach to the very core of your being.  If you will yield to the work of My Spirit in you, it will be possible to see and overcome attitudes, thoughts and behaviors that have undermined your spiritual effectiveness, says the Lord.  1 Peter 1:17-21 And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

July 3, 2019:  Every action is the result of thought and choice.  Please My heart, says the Lord, by keeping your mind fixed on that which is righteous.  Choose to fulfill your purpose through obedience to My word.  It is not too late to make better decisions that will result in blessings. 2 Thessalonians 1:11 Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power.

July 2, 2019:  Disappointment comes when your expectations are not fulfilled.  Take every day as it comes without presumption.  Your idea of how things should be will not change reality.  Save yourself some grief by accepting your current position while trusting that I am with you to lead you through every difficult and dark valley, says the Lord.  Do not be afraid.  Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

July 1, 2019:  For some of you, My people, new beginnings have been like rolling over in your bed asleep.  This is a time when awakening spiritually is a necessity.  New beginnings require changes.  It is time for you to move into a new realm of effectiveness in the Spirit as you seek Me with your whole heart and mind.  Set yourself to achieve new spiritual heights, says the Lord.  Psalm 148:1 Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens; Praise Him in the heights!

 

JUNE 2019

June 30:  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 28, 2019:  For those whose faith has been unwavering, your patient endurance will be rewarded.  You have managed to stay the course and keep spiritual perspective even through times of uncertainty and testing.  And I say to you, "Well done, My good and faithful servant."  Steadily pursue Me and keep your focus on all that is right and good, says the Lord.  Matthew 25:21 His lord said to him, "Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord."

June 27, 2019:  Find and maintain your optimum spiritual position.  There is a place where you can be exactly what you were created to be, doing precisely what I have called you to do.  This is divine order customized to fit you.  It is your cutting edge where you can be the best version of yourself possible, but it will take courage and effort to make some very necessary changes.  You must be willing to let go of fear and bondage, says the Lord.  This is your decision.  You can either move forward or not.  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.

June 26, 2019:  Regardless of the corruption that abounds in the world, it is more vital than ever that you maintain personal integrity.  Make sure that you are established in truth, honesty, and goodness in the midst of wickedness and exploitation.  Rise above the fray to be part of the solution instead of becoming one more element in the problem, says the Lord.  Shine as a light in the darkness.  Philippians 2:14-16a Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life.

June 25, 2019:  You are in the process of breakthrough.  Solutions to problems will not be quick or easy, but once you break through, they will be lasting.  The changes you make to achieve the next level in your life in the Spirit will not come without effort.  Eventually you will look back at this time and see that the difficulties of this time were not only necessary but optimum in producing life and growth, says the Lord.  Press on!  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.

June 24, 2019:  I want to enlarge the place of your spiritual tent.  I want your life in the Spirit to spread out wider, longer, deeper.  My desire is for you to remove old religious boundaries to make way for a more expansive life in the Spirit, says the Lord.  There is more for you to know and to do in My kingdom.  Expansion requires effort, but you are well able to fulfill My desires for you.  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:  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 21, 2019:  You will encounter hindrances, but know that all things work together for your benefit.  You may not be able to understand the delays, but you can rest assured that as you yield to My Spirit you will see that your timing is ultimately on track.  Relax and trust that I am directing your steps to fulfill My intentions, says the Lord.  Refuse to become anxious or annoyed.  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.

June 20, 2019:  Your path forward will require careful consideration as you seek Me for wisdom and direction.  Do not be hasty or casual in your decisions.  Exercise patience when it is unclear what your next step should be.  Wait until you have clarity about My plans and purposes for your life, says the Lord.  I will lead you in the way you should go.  Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

June 19, 2019:  Many of you struggle with condemnation even when you know that walking in the flesh is not where you want to be.  Know that there is a place of humility where pride has no power to condemn or elevate.  As you genuinely walk in the Spirit you will find peace and freedom, says the Lord.  You have nothing to prove.  Be who you were created to be. 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.

June 18 2019:  If you listen carefully you will hear the screams of situations that require your attention as well as the loud voices that want your attention.  But I want you to hear My still small voice that you can only discern when you get quiet.  I want to give you assurance that I know you and that I am with you.  I want to give you the wisdom necessary to navigate your current circumstances successfully, says the Lord.  Psalm 107:30 Then they are glad because they are quiet; so He guides them to their desired haven.

June 17, 2019:  I'm calling forth a people who will be wholly devoted to Me.  I am calling you for such a time as this when the world is in utter chaos and confusion.  Your devotion to Me will manifest as peace and tranquility in the midst of life's storms because you will not be afraid.  You will know that you belong to Me and that I take care of My own, says the Lord.  Colossians 1:21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight—if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven...

June 16:  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.  Psalm 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 14, 2019:  I know you get in a hurry, but I need you to take your time and be patient.  You will get to your due season quickly enough.  Remember that there are things to learn and discover on your journey that will be missed if you rush.  Relax and take time to enjoy the moment, says the Lord.  Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

June 13, 2019:  Watch for the tendency to take on more than you can effectively handle.  You cannot do everything at once.  Narrow your focus and just do the next thing.  Otherwise you will get scattered and overwhelmed.  You can only do one step at a time and one day at a time as you move through what is required of you, says the Lord.  Stay calm and maintain internal peace.  Philippians 4:7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

June 12, 2019:  I will show you the way when there seems to be no way.  There are avenues you can take that you do not know about and have not yet considered.  You just need to trust that you are precious to Me, and I will direct and protect you, says the Lord.  Do not be afraid.  Fear brings torment and will override your faith.  1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

June 11, 2019:  When breakthrough comes it will begin with your thoughts and intentions.  You cannot move forward until you have a solid plan.  Without definitive direction you will only go in circles.  If you seek Me for My perfect plan, I will inspire and guide you into My purposes, says the Lord.  But you must develop a mindset that will motivate you to take the next step.  Jeremiah 29:11  For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

June 10, 2019:  I am calling you to a new, higher level of effectiveness in the Spirit.  As you realize those areas of the flesh that need to be eliminated and act accordingly, your spiritual awareness will increase.  Be sensitive to My conviction, and know the difference between conviction and condemnation.  Conviction comes by My Spirit.  Condemnation is a work of the flesh.  Conviction will bring liberty while condemnation will bring more bondage, says the Lord.  Yield to this great work of My Spirit.  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.

June 9:  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 7, 2019:  Seek to do good.  Let the words of your mouth and meditations of your heart be righteous.  Honor others and recognize that I value every person with equality.  I am no respecter of persons, says the Lord.  Let your love flow like a river of life, and your harvest will be rich and plentiful.  Matthew 7:12  12 "Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets."

June 6, 2019:  Beloved, you can do nothing about the past except learn from your mistakes and forgive those who have hurt you.  Leave the past behind and press on to new heights.  Set your heart to live by the Spirit so that you can attain righteousness and peace, says the Lord.  Many of you will have prime opportunities to change the course of an otherwise miserable life.  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.

June 5, 2019:  Move with the flow of liberation.  This is a time when you can break free from bondage, whether obviously apparent or subtle.  Expand your thoughts and ideas of what is possible for you.  You are capable of more than you have believed.  Push back previously accepted boundaries and limitations, and embrace hope for your future, says the Lord.  Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

June 4, 2019:  In a vision I saw a field of ripe pumpkins, and the Lord said that we are entering new spiritual territory.  It will be a time of spiritual growth and of sowing seeds that will produce an unusual harvest in its season.  Pumpkins are the largest of fruits.  We will be reaping the fruit of our labor, so this season will provide opportunities that will bring forth a bountiful harvest.  Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

June 3, 2019:  You have been in a time of monotonous stagnation, but you are on the verge, the absolute cusp of breakthrough.  Prepare your heart and adjust your attitude so that you are ready to forge ahead.  Watch for every opportunity to progress, says the Lord.  Be ready to take the next step.  Isaiah 52:12 For you shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight; for the Lord will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

June 2:  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.

 

MAY 2019

May 31, 2019:  In a vision I saw someone driving a truck loaded with trash and garbage, and I heard the Lord say:  So many are carrying around worries and thoughts that have no value, which amount to trash and garbage that are not useful to anyone.  It is time for you to unload that stuff and load yourself up with good things--uplifting thoughts and the truth of My Word.  Ephesians 4:17-18 This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart.

May 30, 2019:  When you choose the flow of My Spirit and to walk according to divine order, I will direct your steps in perfect timing.  Then, you can relax and allow Me to lead, says the Lord.  Do not be anxious about anything, but rather know that I have already established the outcome.  Come walk with Me, let Me take 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.

May 29, 2019:  When you put yourself in My care, and I mean truly depend on Me to care for you, I will protect and cover you.  I will speak to you in that protected place and give you wisdom and direction.  But there must be no rebellion in your heart or sense of independence that would keep you from doing My will.  You are not your own when you wholeheartedly give yourself to Me, says the Lord.  1 Corinthians 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

May 28, 2019:  Let My voice be heard.  Listen, look and pay attention.  I am speaking to you and showing you the way if you will only quiet your flesh and rise up in the Spirit to receive.  I am not far from you.  I am closer than your breath.  Recognize and acknowledge My presence, says the Lord.  Silence is the path to revelation.  Zechariah 2:13 "Be silent, all flesh, before the Lord, for He is aroused from His holy habitation!"

May 27, 2019:  I know you whether or not you are aware of that fact.  Many of you, My people, have an unspoken belief that you have access to Me without My knowledge.  You act as though you have to grovel to be heard.  But I am aware of those who enter My presence and seek My face.  I know and understand you.  You are not hidden from My sight, says the Lord.  John 10:14 "I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own."

May 26:  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 24, 2019:  For those who have been struggling to survive, I would have you set your mind and will on the road to recovery.  You must trust Me like never before and refuse to allow setbacks to override the progress you have made.  My presence and healing virtue are powerful and real, says the Lord.  Only believe! Mark 11:24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

May 23, 2019:  Stand strong and unwavering regardless of the difficulties you face.  You are more resilient than you realize.  This is not a time to cave in and become a victim of circumstances.  Strengthen your resolve to not only survive but to thrive.  You can do this because I am with you.  I am your strength and song, says the Lord. Exodus 15:2 The Lord is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise Him; My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.

May 22, 2019:  Push through the barriers that keep you from being the best version of yourself that is possible.  Life's struggles will cause you to grow and will teach you things that mold you into My image, says the Lord.  You are being transformed day by day.  Keep striving.  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 21, 2019:  You will soon be singing a song of rejoicing because you will see the results of the work I have been doing in your life.  When you are going through difficult times, it is hard to see the benefit of your trials. But when the proverbial fog clears, you will see clearly and will understand that what you have endured has strengthened your spiritual and moral fiber, says the Lord.  Walk strong!  Job 8:21 He will yet fill your mouth with laughing, and your lips with rejoicing.

May 20, 2019:  It is My desire that every bondage in your life be broken so that you are free to be all that you can be in Me, says the Lord.  If you will allow it, I will break every fetter and set you free.  But you must yield to that spiritual work and let go of ungodly obsessions and everything that causes you to be disobedient.  Be faithful.  John 8:36 "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed."

May 19:  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.  Psalm 119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction, for Your word has given me life.

May 17, 2019:  In a vision I saw someone who had gotten stuck trying to cross a mud bog.  And, I heard the Lord say, "Many of you, My people, have gotten stuck in difficult circumstances, which have overwhelmed you.  But I have made a way and have given you the strength to overcome.  Take every opportunity to leave the past behind and believe My promises to help you."  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.

May 16, 2019:  Pay attention to what you see and know spiritually.  You are at the very threshold of breakthrough.  Bolster yourself in fresh hope and vision for your future, says the Lord.  I will reveal more about your direction and purpose as you take steps to move forward.  Make careful decisions, for they will be extraordinarily significant.  Psalm 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

May 15, 2019:  Release your burdens and energize your faith to know that I can do what you cannot.  But you must let Me have those things that worry you without taking them back to stew over.  I will take care of your issues in the most effective and efficient ways if you will truly deliver them to Me, says the Lord.  1 Peter 5:6-7   Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

May 14, 2019:  For those of you whose resources have been stretched and over extended, you need to set yourself to conserve and recuperate.  Measure carefully what you are actually capable of so that you do not go beyond your strength or ability.  Cast your cares on Me and trust that I will renew your vitality, says the Lord.  Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

May 13, 2019:  You will have significant opportunities to get overwhelmed with unexpected situations.  In the face of that possibility you must maintain the awareness that you can ask Me for guidance even in the midst of chaos, and I will direct your steps and give you the wisdom you need.  Ask, and I will answer, says the Lord.  I am with you.  Psalm 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.

May 12:  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 10, 2019:  In a vision I saw a mime, and I heard the Lord say, “I want you to demonstrate truth and spiritual reality.  To do this you may have to keep your mouth shut and show through your actions what others need to see in order to understand.  There are too many mouths and not enough demonstrators.  Let Me do My word through you.”  James 2:18 But someone will say, "You have faith, and I have works." Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works."

May 9, 2019:  There are things that still need your attention in order to be brought into order.  My kingdom is one of divine order which will be reflected in the lives of My people, says the Lord.  Yield to the working of My Spirit to bring you into perfect position and alignment for maximum spiritual benefit.  Psalm 138:8 The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; do not forsake the works of Your hands.

May 8, 2019:  Do your best to stay focused spiritually.  Refuse to allow the day-to-day issues and activities to cloud your perspective and interfere with your ability to stay in touch with Me, says the Lord.  Maintain eternal perspective knowing that life on earth is temporary.  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 7, 2019:  Knowing the nature of the problems you face is a necessary first step in finding solutions.  Set yourself to understand your obstacles and opposition.  Discernment is vital to the success of any endeavor, says the Lord.  Stay connected to Me, ask for wisdom, and allow Me to lead you on to victory.  1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

May 6, 2019:  It may seem as though you are taking one step forward and two steps backward.  However, the truth of the matter is that there are some difficult lessons to learn and internal work that must be understood at this time.  These are things that can no longer be overlooked.  What you learn at this time will define you in the days ahead, says the Lord, and will set you up for victory.  Matthew 12:20 A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench, till He sends forth justice to victory.

May 5:  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 3, 2019:  Be sensitive in responding to the leading of My Spirit.  There is internal work to be done with regard to your motivations and attitudes.  I will show you precisely where adjustment is needed and even required before you can operate in divine power, says the Lord.  Carnal responses will interfere with your spiritual strength.  Philippians 3:13-14  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, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

May 2, 2019:  As you press on you will face aspects of life that are formidable, but you must go forth knowing that I am your help in trouble.  I will give you the strength and wisdom to overcome even the most intimidating of circumstances.  Do not be afraid.  Only believe.  Psalm 46:1  God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

May 1, 2019:  I call you, My people, to be kind to one another.  The world is filled with selfishness and hatred. But you belong to Me and not to the world.  When you become one with Me, your attitudes will reflect My heart and not yours.  And the fruit of My Spirit will be evident in all that you are and all that you do, says the Lord.  Galatians 5:22-23  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

APRIL 2019

April 30, 2019:  Sometimes it seems like you are walking through a minefield.  These are times when you have to carefully consider every step with an acute awareness of your circumstances and surroundings.  But know that I am with you to guide you through with divine precision, says the Lord.  I will help and protect you.  Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

April 29, 2019:  I am preparing you for things that are beyond your imagination or consideration.  As you determine to live according to the moving of My Spirit, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.  But you must not settle for where you are now, for it is only a stepping stone to greater things, says the Lord.  Trust Me to lead you to your destiny.  John 14:12 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father."

April 28:  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."  Psalm 31:3 For You are my rock and my fortress; therefore, for Your name’s sake, lead me and guide me.

April 26, 2019:  Watch for opportunities to extend yourself beyond old limitations.  Break out of the box that you have constructed for yourself, and consider your options.  Reach further, go higher and deeper so that your understanding is broadened.  Growth will come when you make a place for it, says the Lord.  Luke 13:7-9  Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, "Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?"  But he answered and said to him, "Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it.  And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after that you can cut it down."

April 25, 2019:  The complexities of life will require that you tackle one aspect at a time because there are  many moving parts.  Do not take anything for granted and refuse to presume that you understand more than you do.  Remember that I am with you to help you when you ask for wisdom and direction, says the Lord.  Proverbs 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

April 24, 2019:  You have been in a virtual desert spiritually, and you have had to fight to resist being lulled to sleep.  Open your eyes wide.  Your desert experience is almost over.  You will soon be revitalized to achieve greater heights and a level of spiritual clarity that you have not even imagined.  This will not automatically happen to you, but will be yours when you seek, stretch and strain to truly know Me, says the Lord. 1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

April 23, 2019:  Be flexible and move with the change of season, both naturally and spiritually.  Also be steadfast and immovable in your relationship with Me, says the Lord.  I am your anchor, your safe haven, and your navigational star.  When you are uncertain about your life and circumstances, look up.  Look to Me for wisdom and direction.  Psalm 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

April 22, 2019:  Stay true to what you know is righteous.  Do not deviate from the leading of My Spirit, says the Lord.  When you try to twist or alter the Word to suit your position and purpose, you are in dangerous spiritual territory.  Deuteronomy 12:32 "Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it."

April 21:  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.  Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

April 19, 2019:  Beloved, any kind of hatred in your life as a born-again, Spirit filled believer is not acceptable.  Any response other than that of My Spirit in you is not suitable.  Vitriol is not of Me for I am a God of love and am no respecter of persons.  The warfare that is admissible is spiritual warfare against the devil and his demons, says the Lord.  It is time for every child of God to make that distinction.  Galatians 5:22-24 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.  And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

April 18, 2019:  Some of you, My people, need a break from the monotonous grind whether mentally or physically.  You need fresh perspective of your life and purpose and the time to deliberately see through spiritual eyes.  It is time to reset.  Re-establish yourself in divine motivation to get beyond where you are stuck, says the Lord.  Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.

April 17, 2019:  Honest evaluation of your life and circumstances will reveal that which keeps you from living in the Spirit.  There are problems that need your attention and adjustment both internally and externally before you can thrive in My kingdom.  There are things you need to embrace and things you need to release in order to be in a position for blessings and progression, says the Lord.  I will lead you in the way you should go.  Psalm 78:52 But He made His own people go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.

April 16, 2019:  You are in a time of preparation when you can formulate a strategy that will accommodate the coming changes.  There are options and opportunities that can be optimized to give you the most effective approach to your unfolding future.  Ask Me for the wisdom and guidance you need to proceed, says the Lord.  Proverbs 2:6 For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.

April 15, 2019:  The strength and power of the internal work that you have done will be revealed by your thoughts, actions, and the words of your mouth.  There are areas in your life where self-control is still an issue.  Victory can only be achieved as you yield to the work of My Spirit, 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.

April 14:  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 12, 2019:  You will be facing and making many choices in the days ahead.  How do you know what is right and best?  Ask Me to show you the way to go.  Spiritual discernment is more important than ever in your options and evaluations.  So, calm your soul and seek wisdom, says the Lord.  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.

April 11, 2019:  I am opening a new chapter in your life.  The last chapter is over and done, and the conclusions are no longer relevant.  Position yourself to step into what I have prepared for you.  Step into the newness of life in the Spirit.  Rise above your history and be done with regrets and condemnation, says the Lord.  2 Timothy 1:12 For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.

April 10, 2019:  Those issues that have been on the back burner, so to speak, can soon be put to rest.  They  will be things that have kept you tied to the past and hindered you from moving on.  This is a time of extrication! But you will have to revisit that which has delayed your progression and growth one last time, says the Lord.  You will have the confidence necessary when you walk this time out in the Spirit.  Proverbs 3:26 For the Lord will be your confidence, and will keep your foot from being caught.

April 9, 2019:  There are and will be many things that need your attention, but planning is one thing and obsession is another.  Refuse to allow these issues to distract from the greater need of spending time with Me.  I want you to be aware of My presence and to be sensitive to the wisdom and guidance that I will give you, says the Lord.  Then, you can walk in perfect peace.  Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

April 8, 2019:  Take stock to see the areas in your life where you have been disobedient to My word.  Those are the places where the enemy can enter in and wreak havoc.  If you are uncertain, ask Me to show you where you fall short of complete obedience, and deliberately make the correction.  Only then will you reap the fruit of obedience, 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?

April 7:  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 5, 2019:  Pay attention and be aware of My leading, for I impart wisdom and direction in every situation.  You are not beyond My reach nor are you unworthy of My help, says the Lord.  Refuse to dump down into self-degradation, but rather rise to a new spiritual level where you can receive all that I have for you.  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.

April 4, 2019:  Many of you are making plans for the future, but you must be honest with yourself that your intentions and expectations are subject to change.  Flexibility is a must because actual circumstances will change your perspective.  Realize that false assumptions can only produce disappointment, says the Lord. Colossians 3:2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

April 3, 2019:  To those who have developed a habit of negativity and complaining, I want you to begin by counting your blessings.  Focus on what is right and good in your life regardless of how insignificant it seems.  By doing this you will be sowing the seeds of righteousness and blessing.  It is time to stop seeing yourself as a victim of life's circumstances and change the outcome of your life by being grateful for the small things, says the Lord.  Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

April 2, 2019:  A very strong anointing has been released on those who sincerely desire to completely yield to Me.  This anointing will give you strength and protection as you move forward in My purposes.  And I tell you honestly that breakthrough is imminent.  I will give you the wisdom needed to make the most of this time, says the Lord.  Persevere!  Romans 8:25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

April 1, 2019:  It is of utmost importance that you align your heart and mind to be in complete unity with Me.  You can do this when My Spirit is active within you.  Set yourself to walk and live in the Spirit.  Only then will you have the anointing to express My thoughts, feelings, purposes and desires, says the Lord.  Romans 12:2  And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

MARCH 2019

March 31:  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.

March 29, 2019:  Watch for the temptation to feel bad about things of the past.  Remind yourself that you can do nothing about any of it.  But, what I have forgiven is forgiven, says the Lord.  Don't dig up old trash that makes you feel terrible about yourself.  You are My child, My chosen.  Go forth in the power of My love to seek righteousness every day.  1 Corinthians 13:4-7  Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

March 28, 2019:  Beloved, your faithfulness and devotion have not gone unnoticed.  You will be rewarded for your consistent faith and trust in Me, says the Lord.  I see your heart and know those whose hearts have not wavered even for a moment.  I will show Myself strong to you.  Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.

March 27, 2019:  Rise above stress and frustration to know that everything that you have endured will ultimately be beneficial.  You are learning the lesson of refinement.  Like gold, you are being purified in the furnace of affliction.  When this time of testing is complete, you will have a greater understanding of what it takes to be transformed into My image, says the Lord.  Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

March 26, 2019:  You have been in a season of divine correction, but now establish yourself in the flow of My blessings.  Let go of the past and move firmly and resolutely into newness of life and liberty, says the Lord.  Stand strong on the firm foundation of faith without reservation.  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.

March 25, 2019:  Go beyond what you have come to know about Me, says the Lord.  Let Me out of the box of your own construct, the box that you developed that only considers what I will do for you.  I want you to expand your mind and heart to understand divine relationship and your purpose not only on the earth, but for eternity.  Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.

March 24:  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 22, 2019:  So many of you feel like you are taking one step forward and two steps back.  But, that is not the truth.  You are continuing to progress.  But when you feel you are going backwards it is because there are valuable lessons that you need to revisit for you to understand more completely.  Nothing is ever wasted in My kingdom.  Everything you endure has spiritual and eternal value, 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 21, 2019:  My precious people, I know your desires and see your need.  I am your help in trouble, but you must ask for My provision and help with the belief that I hear and answer your prayer.  I will give you wisdom and direction, but you must ask in faith with no doubting.  I have no favorites, and I will do for you what I would do for anyone else, says the Lord.  Ask!  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.

March 20, 2019:  Pay attention to details.  You are mostly on track when you look at the larger picture, but it will be the little things, the details, that could trip you up.  Make the corrections necessary so that there are no vulnerabilities that the enemy can exploit.  To be safe you must have integrity and be righteous in all things, says the Lord.  Psalm 25:21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for You.

March 19, 2019:  Stop and consider how life's circumstances have resulted in greater spiritual maturity.  You are in another growth spurt that will serve you well in the days ahead.  Know that when the going gets tough you are being trained and prepared to succeed and gain the victory, says the Lord.  James1:2-4 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 18, 2019:  Regardless of the challenges that you have faced, I want you to remember that I have never left you nor forsaken you.  I have been with you to lead you through even the most difficult of situations.  Even though your faith has been challenged, you are stronger and more resilient than ever.  It is My desire that you now stand strong and unwavering, says the Lord.  2 Corinthians 4:8-9 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—

March 17:  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 15, 2019:  You need a change of spiritual scenery--a change of focus.  You have been more concerned with yourself instead of actually seeking to have vital relationship with Me, says the Lord.  I am the fixer, but even when I make a way you sometimes can't get yourself out of the way in order to see the possibilities, says the Lord.  You must change your habit of self-focus.  Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

March 14, 2019:  It's a waiting game until breakthrough comes.  The question is, "How well will you wait?" You can either wait being impatient and disgruntled, or you can wait in silent trust and assurance that your future is in My hands, says the Lord.  You can wait knowing that you belong to Me and I know all things.  I will lead you and guide your steps with precision.  Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

March 13, 2019:  In a vision I saw a guy riding a tortoise across a desert, which I believe is a symbol of the spiritual environment that we have been in for the past few months--rather dry and slow.  But, I heard the Lord say that these days are about over, and we will have multiple opportunities to leave the desert behind and move in a fresh anointing of the Spirit.  Psalm 63:1 O God, You are my God; early will I seek You; my soul thirsts for You; my flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.

March 12, 2019:  Refuse to allow the chaos around you to affect your sense of order and ability to do what you need to do.  Settle down and move through the day by establishing yourself in peace.  Make the effort to stay connected to Me.  I will give you the wisdom and strength necessary to overcome your circumstances, says the Lord.  1 John 4:4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

March 11, 2019:  In a vision I saw a volcano that had once erupted through the crust of the earth and flowed with hot lava and ash and was now a beautiful mountain covered with lush vegetation.  It was bountiful and teeming with life.  And the Lord revealed that this was a symbol of internal work where unrighteousness and sin finally erupt producing repentance from which flows spiritual life. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

March 10:  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 8, 2019:  You have had numerous opportunities to be ashamed of yourself, but these moments must not define who you are.  Everyone makes mistakes.  You must make a decision to rise up out of the failures of the past and begin with a new spiritual day in which you can exercise self-restraint and to bring honor to your life in My kingdom, says the Lord.  Proverbs 21:21 He who follows righteousness and mercy finds life, righteousness, and honor.

March 7, 2019:  There are many things that you must do when you don't want to do them. Instead of living in dread, take one day at a time and rise up in My strength and grace to do what is necessary. Trust Me to lead you in every difficulty and bring you through to peace, says the Lord. Procrastination will only exacerbate the situation.  2 Samuel 22:33 God is my strength and power, and He makes my way perfect.

March 6, 2019:  Set yourself to know what it is you really believe.  Do not be deceived.  I am not speaking of quoting scripture verses or making declarations.  You must define where your faith is truly active.  Then, you can ask of Me, and I will hear and answer you, says the Lord.  James 1:6-7 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord.

March 5, 2019:  Expand your horizons so that you do not get stuck in a rut.  Find ways to grow that will increase your curiosity and interest.  Otherwise, you may become stodgy.  There are possibilities available to you if you will reach beyond where you are and allow inspiration to move to the forefront, says the Lord. Finding yourself to be dull and uninspired has its roots in your spiritual well-being.  Matthew 13:15 For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, so that I should heal them.

March 4, 2019:  In considering your options, always move in the direction of that which produces truth, grace and life in the Spirit.  If you do so, you will be able to receive divine wisdom and revelation.  And, your eyes will be open to understanding the best choices that will move you forward in My kingdom, says the Lord.  John 16:13-14   "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you."

March 3:  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 1, 2019:  Just as I led My chosen people out of Egypt in ancient times, so I will lead and protect My people from the tyranny of the world.  I will safeguard and care for those who travel the road of peace and righteousness, says the Lord.  I will perfect, establish and strengthen everyone who has decided to live in My kingdom.  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.

FEBRUARY 2019

February 28, 2019:  A unique path to life in the Spirit has been prepared for each one, and when you have found that path you must stay the course.  Changes will be presented from time to time to aid your growth.  But no matter what you do or where you are, keep your focus on truth and righteousness.  Continue to make your relationship with Me the number one priority, says the Lord.  Psalm 18:36 You enlarged my path under me, so my feet did not slip.

February 27, 2019:  You are in a short season of reflection when you will contemplate where you have been and where you are.  In this time of introspection be sure that your evaluations are of the Spirit and not flesh.  Let Me show you what you need to see.  You have come this far by grace and by grace you will proceed, says the Lord.  2 Corinthians 12:9 And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness."

February 26, 2019:  Set yourself to respond to a great spiritual awakening.  You are aware of a new level of anointing, but you have not understood that this awakening is not just a passing experience.  It is the hallmark of a new wave that will encompass those whose desire it is to know Me more intimately.  Those who live and walk in My Spirit will be elevated, says the Lord. Isaiah 55:9 "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts."

February 25, 2019:  I want you to stand on the firm foundation of the truth of My Word, says the Lord.  When you choose to stand on memories and past experiences, you are likely to fall through.  Always take the time to strengthen your relationship with Me in Spirit because through our relationship your faith will be built up and made strong.  Psalm 31:24 Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the Lord.

February 24:  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 22, 2019:  Beloved, position yourself in righteousness to be under the banner of grace.  To do this you must be honest with yourself and make the necessary adjustments so that there is nothing between you and Me.  Integrity and incorruptibility are the requirements for this positioning, says the Lord. Psalm 84:11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

February 21, 2019:  Don't just look; see!  Open your eyes to see, know, and understand your place in My kingdom--your purpose and destiny.  This means that you have to go beyond interest in your worldly condition, position, and existence to become one with Me, says the Lord.  You will be delighted when you can actually see through My eyes.  Matthew 13:13 "Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand."

February 20, 2019:  For those who have ears to hear and eyes to see spiritually, I will open to you realms of glory that are beyond your imagination.  I will show you things beyond your human understanding. You will transcend far above carnality to know Me more intimately.  But, your affection and desire must be for Me and not the world, says the Lord.  Come!  Psalms 8:1  O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens!

February 19, 2019:  I am going to reveal your most despicable traits.  It will not be to shame you or to cause you to condemn yourself.  Rather, it will be for the purpose of correction.  You are being transformed into My image and perfected, and there are still things that need your attention, says the Lord.  Hebrews 12:11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

February 18, 2019:  My true disciples are moving with the flow of My Spirit, and everything is in the order of purpose and destiny.  Refuse the possibility of getting off track through disappointment and discouragement.  Trust that even the conditions that seem bleak or hostile will give you opportunities to grow in ways that you otherwise would not, says the Lord.  Stay close to Me.  Matthew 7:14 "Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it."

February 17:  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 15, 2019:  Life requires patience and perseverance, but many of My people want to do life in giant leaps.  There are many lessons to learn and victories that will take one day at a time and one step at a time to win and fulfill your destiny.  Be content with the pace I have established because it is the perfect tempo for spiritual growth and blessings, says the Lord.  Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content.

February 14, 2019:  This is a time to reset; to begin again with a fresh outlook and renewed hope for the future.  Draw close to Me, says the Lord, and receive all that is available to aid in your progression.  Be sensitive to My leading as I lift you up and give very specific direction to help you in the next phase of your life.  Psalm 18:30 As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.

February 13, 2019:  Beloved, I will show you the way out of troubling circumstances, but you will have to do what is right and not what would satisfy your carnal nature.  If you will quiet your soul you will see that the divide between right and wrong is a widening chasm.  You must find your place in the Spirit to know the best way to go, says the Lord.  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.

February 12, 2019:  Believe Me when I tell you that procrastination could be costly to you.  You must not put off that which requires your attention.  Do not be afraid to move forward in dealing with issues that have caused you to dread.  Trust Me to give you wisdom and create a path forward, 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."

February 11, 2019:  Fix your gaze on Me, says the Lord.  Everything in the world around you is designed to distract you and pull you down.  Your spiritual vitality will come from establishing your relationship with Me first.  Then, you can deal with the issues of life with wisdom and the power of the Spirit.  1 Corinthians 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

February 10:  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 8, 2019:  I know of the desire of many of My people to make amends for past transgressions.  You cannot undo what has been done.  I know the depth of your repentance.  Receive My forgiveness, and forgive those who have sinned against you as well.  You must not harbor resentment in any form, says the Lord.  Be free!  Matthew 6:15 "But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

February 7, 2019:  Be true to yourself by being true to Me.  Put forth the effort to focus on things that really matter.  This is no time to be short-sighted.  Being self-centered will most certainly cause you to live in the flesh and not in the Spirit.  Look to Me for guidance and wisdom as you move to do what is truly meaningful, says the Lord.  Romans 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.

February 6, 2019:  Look up!  Breakthrough is coming, even at your very door.  Many of you have felt stuck and unable to progress.  But I tell you truthfully that this advance will be supernatural and beyond your own thoughts and emotions.  Relax and allow this move of My Spirit plenty of room to bring you through to complete success, says the Lord.  Psalm 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

February 5, 2019:  For those who have been under an unusual amount of pressure, you can expect some relief.  You can now spend more time with Me, says the Lord.  And, I will reveal deep things of the Spirit that you may have overlooked in your busyness.  I honor your diligence in seeking My face and desiring My presence.  You are precious to Me.  Isaiah 43:4a Since you were precious in My sight, you have been honored, and I have loved you.

February 4, 2019:  Much of your internal work will have to do with self-control in these days.  The world around you seems completely out of control, which is true to some extent.  But that should not be the case with you.  Set for yourself a code of ethics, a higher standard that aligns completely with My word, says the Lord.  This is more crucial than it has ever been.  Luke 6:46 "But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do the things which I say?"

February 3:  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 victory.  Psalm  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 1, 2019:  Each one of you carries the responsibility to be an example of righteousness in My kingdom.  Only those who live what they believe will be credible in their witness of Me, says the Lord.  It is not only your right, but your obligation to represent Me in spirit and in truth, and you can only do that if you live and walk in the Spirit.  Proverbs 13:17 A wicked messenger falls into trouble, but a faithful ambassador brings health.

JANUARY 2019

January 31, 2019:  Shake off the spirit of slumber and wake up.  Many of you have been dozing through life to avoid unpleasantness.  But in your sleep you also miss My input.  Being partially awake doesn't work if you want to be aware of the moving of My Spirit, says the Lord.  It is advantageous to you to be sharp mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  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.

January 30, 2019:  Regardless of what you are going through, make every effort to maintain a positive outlook.  Look beyond temporary hardships to know that I am with you to give you the wisdom and help that you need.  The things you endure at this time will actually strengthen your resolve if you allow it, says the Lord.  2 Corinthians 4:8-10 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.

January 29, 2019:  Make an evaluation of how you have handled problems and dilemmas.  There is still internal work to be done before you can truly depend on Me for wisdom and direction.  Self-reliance and fear are two areas to consider.  I really am your hope for doing what is right and good in every situation.  But you must trust Me, says the Lord.  Psalm 56:3 Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.

January 28, 2019:  Among all the concerns you have in life, your number one concern should be to stay alive in Me, says the Lord.  The world around you screams for your attention, but My still small voice is what you must hear.  Filter out the things that fight against your life in the Spirit.  Quiet yourself and maintain the peace that comes with relationship with Me.  Set your mind and heart on things eternal.  Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

January 27:  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 25, 2019:  Prepare to make changes that can strengthen your position in health, relationships, and finances.  I do not speak of great, sweeping change, but of tweaking your current state of being.  These will be small adjustments that will reap great rewards, says the Lord.  Be flexible; I will direct your steps.  Jeremiah 10:23 O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.

January 24, 2019:  Rise up.  It is time for you to move higher in the realm of the Spirit.  Do not wait for others to join you or keep you company.  You will have to stand alone in your convictions and relationship with Me, says the Lord.  You cannot ride on someone else's coat tails.  It doesn't matter what others around you are doing or thinking.  You must be righteous if you are the only one in a crowd.  Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

January 23, 2019:  When you feel vulnerable make a concerted effort to do what it takes to be as safe as possible.  However, you must not forget that abiding in Me is your ultimate security.  I am your safe harbor in the midst of a storm.  Come and hide yourself in Me, says the Lord.  Psalm 27:5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.

January 22, 2019:  Be diligent to keep pressing to find Me in the midst of troubling situations.  This onslaught is temporary, but will require concerted effort and focus to overcome.  Trust Me in these things to bring clarity and to further define purpose, says the Lord.  Don't leave Me out of the process.  Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

January 21, 2019:  In a vision I saw what looked like a horizontal rainbow with layers of transparent color.  And the Lord said that these colors represent different levels or expressions of glory.  He also indicated that He would expand our understanding of glory.  1 Corinthians 15:41 There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory.

January 20:  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 18, 2019:  You represent Me in the world.  You are a face of Christianity.  Live your life in a way that  exhibits the fruit of My Spirit, says the Lord.  Let your light shine.  Set yourself apart from worldly systems and attitudes and let love rule in your heart.  Galatians 5:22-23a  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

January 17, 2019:  Take an inventory of where you are--your thought process and way of doing things--and see if there are adjustments to be made.  This is a time when you can get organized in ways that will benefit your work flow.  Your ultimate goal should be to prioritize in a way that allows you to spend time with Me, says the Lord.  Psalms 27:8 When You said, "Seek My face," my heart said to You, "Your face, Lord, I will seek."

January 16, 2019:  As you, My people, are faced with navigating life's difficulties and intracacies, you need My wisdom.  You will find yourselves dealing with issues that are beyond your depth, but I possess all knowledge and understand all things.  You can ask Me for wisdom and direction in every situation, and I will provide it.  You need only to ask in faith, knowing that I will answer, says the Lord.  James 1:6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.

January 15, 2019:  Your hard work will pay off if you refuse to get discouraged.  Do not give up.  It is time to press through the obstacles that you face.  I am with you to help you achieve My goals and purposes in your life.  Only believe!  I am with those whose hearts are set on fulfilling My will, says the Lord.  Psalm 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

January 14, 2019:  Make a thorough examination of yourself and circumstances to understand why you do what you do.  When you get to the bottom of your motivations, you will be able to separate right from wrong.  You will be able to see whether or not your actions are consistent with the truth and My word, says the Lord.  Do not be afraid to look.  Psalm 139:23-24  Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

January 13:  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 11, 2019:  Many of you are struggling to wake up spiritually.  You have been dumbed down by the chaos that has prevailed in the natural realm.  I would have you pull away from everything that has anchored your soul and spirit to the earth.  Refuse to be dragged down by circumstances, and do not worry.  And set your mind on things that bring hope and have eternal value, says the Lord.  Colossians 3:2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

January 10, 2019:  Every decision you make that is consistent with kingdom values will cause you to advance on the path that I have chosen for you, says the Lord.  Your obedience to fulfill your commission is of utmost importance.  Do not underestimate your impact on others.  What you do and say will either lift up or tear down the people around you.  My will is for you to always do good.  Psalm 34:14 Depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

January 9, 2019:  Behold, I send angels before you into this new year, a season of extraordinary significance.  I will use you by sending you as My emissary into seemingly impossible situations.  I will send you with My power and strength and wisdom to do the exact right thing to extricate those who are in the throes of the enemy.  Trust Me and know that you are not alone in all that I send you to do.  Luke 4:10  For it is written: He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you.

January 8, 2019:  Ask for wisdom as you navigate the issues of the new year.  Let Me guide you into proper action for every situation.  Nothing is too hard for Me, says the Lord, and when you are one with Me nothing is too hard for you.  Partner with Me in all things and go forth with the confidence that you are well able to accomplish what is before you.  Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

January 7, 2019:  Be alert to the first small movements of a new flow of divine life.  It will be subtle at first, but as you allow that flow to have a place in your spirit it will begin to grow and develop into a mighty current of life and inspiration.  Remember that you are making a place for My life to manifest in you, says the Lord.  Psalm 36:9 For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light.

January 6:  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 4, 2019:  When you feel that you do not fit in society, or that you are unacceptable, understand that I did not create clones.  You were created a unique and wonderful individual.  I do not love one person more than another.  Receive My love and strive to develop a relationship with Me in the spirit realm.  Just because you cannot see Me does not mean that I do not exist or that I do not know and acknowledge you, says the Lord.  Come to Me.  Psalm 139:14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.

January 3, 2019:  Rise above contention and division.  You can settle yourself if you let go of disturbances and access peace.  I would have you live on a spiritual level where you can trust Me in all things.  I will lead you in the path of righteousness, peace, and joy.  Allow tranquility to be your way of life, says the Lord.  It will bring health to your body, soul and spirit.  Romans 14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

January 2, 2019:  Protect the things that are precious in your life.  Put up a shield against that which the enemy would try to tear down and destroy.  Secure your sense of right and wrong, your moral values.  This is a time to delineate between the precious and the vile and to defend righteousness.  Above all guard your heart with all diligence, 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."

January 1, 2019:  Buckle down and get serious about your relationship with Me.  As things progress and change, you must be sufficiently agile to do what is necessary to protect your spiritual connection and to fight against all that will interfere with righteousness, peace and joy in the Spirit.  Strengthen yourself in My power, says the Lord.  Ephesians 6:10-11  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.   Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
