Many of you have been undergoing seasons of training and transformation, some have lasted years. The questions have been asked as to, “when, Lord, when?”. Many have grown weary waiting for the fulfilment of hopes and dreams.
I am now calling you to arise. You have served well in the places I have put you and I have watched as you faithfully gave of yourself even in those places that were unseen and unrewarded by men. Now, see I come with my recompense. Many of you will thrive and grow just where you are. I will display favour over your lives and you will no longer be hidden.
However, there are many of you who have served and been faithful, that I am now transporting not only within your local area, but nationally and internationally. I am fanning my faithful ones out across the world to place them in spheres of influence at all levels of society in order to bring in the harvest.
(NIV) Luke 16:10
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.
(NIV) Matthew 9:37-38
Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
(NIV) John 4:36
Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.
26/2/15 The Humming Bird
The Humming bird gets its name from the noise its wings make, as it sits almost still in the wind. It is one of the smallest, yet the beauty it carries as it flits from flower to flower is a delight for every eye. It shimmers in the sunlight, as all its colours are revealed.
Do you feel small and insignificant? Are you the quiet one? Does everyone around you seem to be giants of the faith?
You my friend, are like the humming bird, I have created in you a heart of beauty, you are the artist, the one who paints with colours that are so intense, you are the sculptor who brings forth meaning to a block of stone, you are the dancer who dances before my throne, you are the intercessor whose knees bleed for your nation, you are the Sunday school teacher who trains a generation to follow my Name.
You my friend are fearfully and wonderfully made.
(NIV) Psalm 139: 13-15
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
25/2/15 Boldly Go
Open the treasure trove of faith that lives in your heart and boldly step into the winds of the storm that surround your life. Stand and face your mountain. Release your voice in my name and allow your authority to pour over the jagged edges of this giant. Watch as the rumblings from the very core of it are revealed before you. It will begin to shake and shudder as great rocks fall away from its summit.
Each rock is a weight being lifted from your shoulders. As it tumbles and falls as dust to the ground, your faith rises strength on strength. Never again will the enemy have a hold to block your vision from the open plains before you.
(NIV) Isaiah 41: 15-16
“See, I will make you into a threshing sledge,
new and sharp, with many teeth.
You will thresh the mountains and crush them,
and reduce the hills to chaff.
You will winnow them, the wind will pick them up,
and a gale will blow them away.
But you will rejoice in the Lord
and glory in the Holy One of Israel.
24/2/15 No Accident
There are no mistakes, everyone who comes to me has been chosen, their names have been written in the book of life. Those same names have been engraved upon my hands. I know each of you personally. Every hair on your head I know, even the ones that used to be there. I know each follicle as I know every grain of sand on the whole earth. I know when you rise and when you sit down.
I was at your creation and I knit you in your mother’s womb. I watched your birth and your childhood. When you scraped your knees, I was there. That first day of school, I held your hand all day. I watched you grow into an adult. Every day of your life, I have walked with you.
On that last day, I will hold you through it. As for Eternity, I have prepared a place for you my good and faithful friend.
(NIV) Revelation 21: 26-27
The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it. Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
(NIV) John 15: 14-16
You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
23/2/15 Thermals of Peace
As the eagle soars on the thermals, I call to each one of my sons and daughters to soar upon the thermals of the Holy Spirit. As you climb into the heavens’, open your wings and rest upon the updraft. Feel my wind holding you aloft, safe and secure. Glide freely and sense my spirit, as my perfect peace, begins to remove every pain and discomfort from your mind and body.
Ease into my arms, for I hold you secure. My heart beat is the rhythm of love pouring into every part of my beloved. Know my closeness for I am never far from you.
(NIV) John 14: 26-27
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
20/2/15 Let not your Heart be troubled
My friends do not allow the confusion of your present situation, distract you from the path I have laid before you. Set your face like flint and move ahead of the disarray that seems to be filling your vision. The enemy is trying to pull you in many different directions at the same time, causing you to deal with situations that pull you down into the quicksand of indecision.
Lift all things in prayer and leave them with me. Walk free, knowing that I have made the path straight before you. I have made you to be one who runs with the wild horses, you will know the whispers of the wind. My beloved you will go further and push the boundaries of faith. You will open the new territories that are being revealed to you, even in the night hours, as My Spirit visits your dreams and pours out the blue prints of time.
(NIV) Mark 11: 23-25
“Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
(NIV) Isaiah 50: 7
Because the Sovereign Lord helps me,
I will not be disgraced.
Therefore have I set my face like flint,
and I know I will not be put to shame.
19/2/15 No More
My beloved the time of hiddenness is over. I call you out from the shadows, so that you can be seen clearly. Release from your mouth a shout of power and authority. Let them hear the voice of my people and my church in the corridors of power. Hide not your face from man, for I will fill your mouth with the words of wisdom for all situations.
As the shadows try to gather around this world and bring darkness upon the face of the earth, my beacons will shine brighter and brighter, my light will bring revelation and salvation to those blinded by the deceitful propaganda of this age.
(NIV) John 1: 4-5
In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 4: 5-7
For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
18/2/15 Plastered over
Many of you have small cuts and grazes, these are not deep wounds, yet you put your plasters and bandages over them and wait for them to heal, believing time heals all. This, my friends is a lie, these small cuts can hurt as deep as any betrayal. That graze you can hardly see, can stop a friendship and bring silence between families.
When you are hurt by someone else, even when it seems only a surface wound, I say forgive them and tell them that you were hurt by their comments, that it left a mark. Stop covering over the little wounds before they become terminal. Better the wounds of a friend than the kisses of an enemy.
(NIV) Luke 6: 44-45
Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.
17/2/15 Wave of Spiritual Fire
There is a wave of pulsating power being released over my sons and daughters. It will wash through this world as a wave of living fire. Wherever it touches, transition and change will flow out of the churches, homes, towns and cities. Even nations will bow the knee before the throne of grace.
Watch as the darkness flees from my living flame, as the night becomes day, for my light will bring freedom for the captives. The prisons built by man to entrap the people of God, will crumble and fall as dust. The very earth that you walk on will shake, as my power is released from the very hearts of my people.
(NIV) Jeremiah 31: 35
This is what the Lord says,
he who appoints the sun
to shine by day,
who decrees the moon and stars
to shine by night,
who stirs up the sea
so that its waves roar—
the Lord Almighty is his name.
(NIV) Jeremiah 23: 29
“Is not my word like fire,” declares the Lord, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?
My family hear my words as I speak directly into the very core of your heart, open your spiritual ears as I call your name. Release to me all your anxiety and your fear. Do not listen to the whispers of your mind that try to tell you that you are alone. For these are the lies of the enemy, trying to capture your thoughts.
I say “I will never leave you or forsake you” also “take captive every thought”. Only by the renewing of your mind will you become focused upon my word and spirit. Allow my spirit to fill every thought with my truth for “The truth will set you free”.
(NIV) Romans 12: 1-2
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
13/2/15 Amazing Restoration
I am restoring all places of brokenness in your life, those deep wounds that have left scars of pain in your heart, I am washing away. Even the scars of time will not remain for I am completing what I began in you my precious and beautiful one.
You are amazing and unique my beloved, there is only one of you, created to be you. Filled with hope for all your tomorrows in me, are yes and amen.
As the butterfly struggles out its cocoon, the strength it needs to fly is only injected as it sits in the warmth of the sun, it dries its wings and they begin to stretch out into their fullness, the colours begin to shine and the full beauty is finally seen. Fully restored and free to fly.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 1: 19-20
For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us—by me and Silas and Timothy—was not “Yes” and “No,” but in him it has always been “Yes.” For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.
(NIV) Joel 2: 23-26
Be glad, people of Zion,
rejoice in the Lord your God,
for he has given you the autumn rains
because he is faithful.
He sends you abundant showers,
both autumn and spring rains, as before.
The threshing floors will be filled with grain;
the vats will overflow with new wine and oil.
“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—
the great locust and the young locust,
the other locusts and the locust swarm—
my great army that I sent among you.
You will have plenty to eat, until you are full,
and you will praise the name of the Lord your God,
who has worked wonders for you;
never again will my people be shamed.
As the people of many nations sat down together and smoked the peace pipe, it would bring peace to their nation and peace to each member of that nation.
My daughters and sons, I call each of you into my perfect peace, which pours over you, and the lives of your families, your neighbours, your friends and especially those who use you and abuse you, your enemies.
As you my beloved, stand before the mirror of a new day, I say look deeply into your own spiritual heart, and allow my peace to fill every area that still tries to encapture you in a place of disquiet. Forgive yourself for your past mistakes, hold them no more and release them to the cross, for I have already paid the price for them.
As these lies over your life flow away, my perfect peace will fill every part of you.
(NIV) Philippians 4: 6-8
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
11/2/15 Power and Authority
My friends and family, you are surrounded by the Holy Spirit. He lives in you and through you. You are my vessel washed clean inside and out. You host my presence, my power, my authority and my name. When you speak mountains tremble, cancer dies and the lame walk. Your voice carries the authority of the heavenly courts to all mankind.
So do not fear the face of man, walk forward and allow all the chains of the past to fall from you. There is nothing behind you or in front of you that can stop what I have begun in you. For you will carry out my plan and purpose for your life. My beautiful one, you are called, anointed and commissioned to walk in my footsteps, and where ever you lay your foot, I will give you that land, in my Name.
(NIV) 1Peter 3: 13-15
Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.” But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect
(NIV) Acts 26: 16-17
Now get up and stand on your feet. I have appeared to you to appoint you as a servant and as a witness of what you have seen and will see of me. I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them
My sons and daughters, many of you have been asking what is my call and my purpose? I would say to you, what is it that brings you joy and delight? Is it teaching? Then teach. Is it prophesying? Then prophesy. Is it acts of service? Then serve.
Do whatever your hand finds to do. Do not enter into competition, everyone has a unique and individual gift. Something that makes you feel alive when you do it, because it was what you were created to do. Let me show you the pure delight you can have.
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 12:4-11
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
9/2/15 All of You
My beloved sons and daughters, I do not want just a part of you, I want all of you. Your mind and thoughts, your desires and hopes, your what ifs and what might have beens, your first step to your last breath, your beauty and love, your tears and your fears, your today and all your tomorrow’s, your laughter and joy, your sickness and pain, your prayers and praise, your mornings and evenings, your good times and your hard times.
There is nothing in your life that I don’t want, I want all of you.
(NIV) Romans 14: 7-9
For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone. If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.
What inspires you? A beautiful flower dripping with the morning dew, a stream bubbling as the sun glints off its shimmering surface, the cry of the eagle as it soars high in the sky, the cold crisp air of a mountain summit, the scream of laughter from a child, the words in a book written just for you?
I wrote a book and you are the reason, every word of my book carries my love to your heart, my book is a love story to my children, my family, my beloved, my bride.
Every word drips with my tenderness, pouring out over the eons of time, to bring inspiration to my chosen ones, each of you are set apart; your hearts carry my love letter to a love sick world.
(NIV) Revelation 3: 7b-8
These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.
5/2/15 Right place
Feelings are the whispers of our minds. They quietly become thoughts and slide undetected into truths. We begin to live out of and are trapped in a cloud of confusion and lies, created by our feelings. Friends become enemies overnight, that innocent look becomes dark and hurtful. Those we love are the focus of rebellion. We close in on ourselves as isolation becomes our home and we live with our feelings.
Friends and family, feelings in the right place, immersed in My spirit can be a useful tool, to test what stands around you. I say look deeper, as through My spirit there will be discernment, in every part of your life. See through spiritual eyes that have been awakened by My light.
You are free.
(NIV) Galatians 5: 13-14
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
(NIV) Philippians 2: 1-3
Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,
There are times when it is painful to let go, there are some around you that you adore and love wholeheartedly. You would run over burning coals and broken glass if they needed you too, you would do without food and water, just to see them smile. You would die for them, if that was the cost, to see them heaven bound.
My son has already paid the price for their life, so that you do not have to. Not everyone around you is good for you; the heart of love that you carry can be taken advantage of. Do not become another’s’ saviour, there is only one and his name is Jesus. Allow others to find their rest in him and him alone.
Open your eyes and see, for my truth will set you and them free.
(NIV) Acts 4: 12
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
3/2/15 My Voice
Do not let the echoes of the past be your authority for today, those distant voices that deemed whether you were fit for purpose or not. They come into your dreams in the dead of night, to remind you of your past failures, trying to entangle your awakened day, into the lies of yesteryear.
My sons and daughters, you need to step out of your past into the now, for you are set free from the memories of disqualification and death. You my beloved, have been qualified by my Blood and resurrection, you are a new creation. My still small voice will be a roar in your spiritual ear, as you hear these words, “My sheep know my voice “.
(NIV) John 10: 27-28
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.
2/2/15 Plate Spinners
My Sons and Daughters, you are so busy trying to spin so many plates, you run from this one to that one, desperately trying to keep them all spinning. Aren’t you exhausted yet?
Come aside, still yourself, and let go of all the things that capture your imagination and time. Worrying about all the little details, will only exhaust you, and leave you dangling at the end of your nerves. It is not My best for you, nor is it my desire. I love you so completely that all I want is for you is to spend time with me. Will I not unfold My plans and purposes to you and give you fresh vision every day? Then all the little things will fall into place as you give Me your best.
(NIV) Matthew 11:28-30
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
(NIV) Jeremiah 31:25
I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.
