1 Peter 5:8 (NIV) Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
Beloved, be aware of the schemes, lies, and devices of the enemy. Resist the desire of the flesh to side with the opinions of man. This war is not against flesh and blood; come higher, come see from heaven’s perspective.
Ephesians 2:6 (TPT) He raised us up with Christ the exalted One, and we ascended with him into the glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ!
You are a pilgrim in this land, this is not your home. Silence the noise of the earth by drawing closer to Me in our secret place. Refuse to become distracted by the noise. Be diligent to guard your eyes, ears, and your heart. Most importantly, protect our time just as a Mama bear protects her cub. Bring every concern to Me, for I know all things—just ask.
Jeremiah 33:3 (VOICE) Eternal One: Call to Me, and I will answer you. I will tell you of great things, things beyond what you can imagine, things you could never have known.
That burning inside you is of Me.I placed that flame inside you and the wind of the Holy Spirit fans it. Giving it strength when needed. The strength to stand up for injustice, to fight for one another. We are at war!The things of this world and the things of Heaven.The enemy would rather you be quiet and let your fire die down to tiny embers. I stoke the fires, I resurrect the dead things.

Beloved, I call you this day to a new place of awareness. I have touched your lips and called you to speak for Me. Like a wire that is brought to life when it is charged with electricity, so My anointing elevates your speech out of the mundane and gives power to the words that fall from your lips. Continue reading “Let It Rain”
We may not always expect our place of preparation to be a pit as it was for Joseph (starting in Genesis 37), but such was certainly the case for me in my walk.Something my son Jonathan said to me some time ago comes to my mind a lot. When I spoke of how God seemed to use me more than I would have expected when I was in the pit, Jonathan’s reply was,“To you, it was a pit, but to God it was a place of preparation.”Continue reading “The Place of Preparation”
Jeremiah 33:3 (AMP) ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.’
For several years, I have been learning how important it is for us to ask questions in our daily walk with God. Persistently inquiring of God about Scripture, its mysteries, or my prophetic encounters with Him has been like a key that opens the double doors of revelation. While God desires that His children would inquire of Him so that we will learn more, we may not realize that the release of His Kingdom is actually dependent upon it. Continue reading “The Key is to Ask”
Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT) For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
When I set you on a path, beloved, remember that I am there with you to see My plans through. All that is required on your part is to walk in the power of your faith in Me. At times, you may find the journey to be difficult because you cannot see all the details of My plan. I have given you the destination, yet I alone know all the twists and turns in your journey. Walk along this course being certain that you will see My goodness. I urge you to yield your expectations over the details to Me. Instead, adopt an attitude of childlike wonder over this adventure. By doing so, you will be able to maintain your peace and security in Me. Continue reading “Have Faith in My Path”
I am in the details. I know all about you and every need. Why do you not think I would want you to come to me for any and every issue you may have? Even the little ones that seem insignificant to you, they are all important to me. Every hair on your head is numbered. I so do care about you and every situation you face. Bring them all to me, the big ones and the little ones. No one thing is too small or too hard for me to do. Is there anything too hard for me? I am Lord who created all things, and I am in the details of your life. You are important to me, and I desire you to seek My face on everything that affects you to the smallest detail. Give it all to me and watch me work.Continue reading “Details”
Jeremiah 8:22 (NET) There is still medicinal ointment available in Gilead! There is still a physician there! Why then have my dear people not been restored to health?
Beloved, press into Me – the Great Physician, and I will make you whole. Press into Me, YHVH Rapha – the Lord your healer, and I will give you rest. Look to Me as I pour out My healing oil – anointing you and bringing new life.
Stand fast and refuse to receive anything less than My best. Press in and remain expectant. And as you wait, remember My grace is sufficient for you. I AM with you, and I AM the One who heals.
Jeremiah 32:17 (VOICE) Eternal Lord, with Your outstretched arm and Your enormous power You created the heavens and the earth. Nothing is too difficult for You.
Beloved, nothing is too difficult for Me. Will you believe what your natural senses are telling you above what My Word says? Surely not. Stand fast in faith. Ask for My truth over any situation, then hold fast to what I say and refuse to be moved.
I delight in showing My power. I delight in making the impossible possible. I delight in changing hearts, healing the broken, and restoring that which seems beyond repair. Stand fast and trust in Me.
Jeremiah 51:27 (GW) Raise your battle flag throughout the world. Blow the ram’s horn among the nations. Prepare nations to attack Babylon. Tell the kingdoms of Ararat, Minni, and Ashkenaz to attack it. Appoint a commander to lead the attack. Bring up horses like a swarm of locusts.
Beloved, keep your heart tuned into My frequency and keep your eyes at the ready. Be sensitive and know the times. Listen for when I rally My people – calling them together from the east and from the west. Respond to My cry. It is time to take action.
Prepare for battle, beloved – a war fought on your knees through the righteous prayer and intercession of the saints. They are as strong and mighty as rearing stallions – bold and fearless. So listen and respond. Join the troops, be tenacious in your warfare, and remember I AM always victorious.
