30/11/15 Clear Vision

Doubt is like a wet blanket that surrounds you, and tries to envelop every thought and action in your life. Doubt is a liar, it is a demonic spirit of control that hungrily eats up every part of your strength and resolve, you are left weak and oppressed, and every thought becomes your own worst enemy.

My beautiful bride, my words over you are, “that I will never leave you or forsake you” and “I never will”. Doubt has no place in me or mine. You are bathed in my living light, and that has washed away all doubt. Fix your eyes completely on me and I will fill your horizon.

From the rising of the sun till the end of every day, you my beloved, hold my gaze. I look upon your face and I see my love reflected from every part of you. For in me you are free to soar with the eagles.

(NIV) Hebrews 13: 5-6

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,

“Never will I leave you;

never will I forsake you.”
So we say with confidence,

“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?”

(NIV) Isaiah 40: 28-31

Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

27/11/15 Release the Fire

You my family are called to set fires all over your nations. Do not hold back and wait for permission, for my word over you today is “Yes and Amen”.

“GO NOW!” into the street and bring in the harvest. They are prepared and ready to be harvested. You are the spark of my love to your nation. You will set the fires in every street and home. As the Holy Spirit releases his breath, a mighty wind of supernatural transformation will create a fire storm of destruction to the plans of the enemy. His plans are to keep the people of your nation trapped in the chains of sin. Watch as these chains of death, melt in Holy Fire. And freedom comes to the nations of this world.

You are a catalyst, prepared, trained and anointed as my fire carriers.

Release the FIRE!

(NIV) Matthew 3: 11-12

“I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”

(NIV) Hebrews 2: 3-5

How shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.

26/11/15 Stripping Away

There has been a season of stripping away.

The places within your daily walk and life, where the enemy has tried to keep you entrapped in thought and deed, have been a place of struggle and strife in your life, for many years.

This stripping for many has resulted in discomfort and even deep soul searching. You have become aware of these places, and have been laying them down before my throne of grace. You have left them here and walked away from them.

My friend the time of stripping is at an end. You have walked out victorious and free.

Stand up tall, stick out your chest, square your jaw, for you my beloved are fit for battle. The Holy Spirit is now free to live my life through you, without hindrance.

Watch as I release a wave of supernatural visions upon you and through you, even in the dark hours of sleep you will receive the blueprints of my plans and purposes, be ready to awake and write them down.

I will fill the journal of your life with miracle after miracle, for your heart belongs fully to me.

(NIV) James 1: 12-18

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.

Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of first fruits of all he created.

(NIV) Acts 2: 17-21

“‘In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy.
I will show wonders in the heavens above
and signs on the earth below,
blood and fire and billows of smoke.
The sun will be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood
before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
And everyone who calls
on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

25/11/15 Planned from the beginning of Time

My bride, know my love for you. My splendor is worn as a new coat in the winter upon your shoulders. You carry within your heart my fullness to all the nations of this world. Your beauty stands above all that the world can offer. You open your arms to the lost and broken. You welcome in the wounded and the unloved. You pour my love into their hearts and their lives.

My beloved, you send them out, transformed anew and refreshed. Washed in my blood and risen through my resurrection. Their stone has been rolled away and they now carry my aroma that will attract the hungry and rejected.

My family moves forward into the plan and purpose which has been ordained for them, from the beginning of time.

(NIV) Isaiah 25:1

Lord, you are my God;
I will exalt you and praise your name,
for in perfect faithfulness
you have done wonderful things,
things planned long ago.

(NIV) 2 Timothy 1: 9-10

He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Saviour, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

24/11/15 What does a Nation Changer look like? YOU!

Many of my family compare themselves and their lives with others around them. You look at the gifting and anointing that another carries and you weigh your own self and abilities against that person.

I created, and placed the anointing into that person, for they are here to teach, love and honour, you, so that you can be prepared, for your unique calling in me. You are unique in who you are, there is no one like you anywhere else on this earth, you carry skills and abilities, that I want to use and supernaturally anoint.

Take your eyes off those who you see as more important than you in my kingdom. You think they are more spiritually aware than you are, they can preach better, they prophesy better, they are bigger, stronger, and the enemy never bothers them. These people are my servant leaders, called to do my will on this earth, each one carries my authority and they know how to use it.

Awake the passion for revival in your heart, for I call you forward into my light as a “Nation Changer”. You my friend, are unique and you have what I need to touch the lives of all who live around you, for you carry me in the core of your being.

(NIV) Matthew 20: 1-16

“For the kingdom of heaven, is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard. He agreed to pay them a denarius for the day and sent them into his vineyard.

“About nine in the morning he went out and saw others standing in the marketplace doing nothing. He told them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.’ So they went.

“He went out again about noon and about three in the afternoon and did the same thing. About five in the afternoon he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, ‘Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?’

“‘Because no one has hired us,’ they answered.

“He said to them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard.’

“When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.’

“The workers who were hired about five in the afternoon came and each received a denarius. So when those came, who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. ‘These who were hired last worked only one hour,’ they said, ‘and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.’

“But he answered one of them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? Take your pay and go. I want to give the one who was hired last the same as I gave you. Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?’

“So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”

23/11/15 Supernatural Increase

The wells of revival have been opened. Many nations are hearing the sounds being released from the heavens. My army is rising up and taking their place in the harvest fields, here they will do their warfare.

Each of you has your own well of revival. It is daily filled up with living water as you come to me in praise and thanksgiving. When you open your bible and eat from my living word, the water of life is poured into your well.

I am releasing to you my family, a supernatural increase to the capacity, of what your well can hold. It will look to all around you like a water spout, which will rise into the heavens. It will be contained in the light of revival. For you, my friends, are ready for the more in me. You will be seen on every corner of your towns and cities and you will never be silenced again by the noise of religion.

Step up and out with confidence for you have been supernaturally transformed and anointed. My Spirit lives within you.

(NIV) John 4: 14

But whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

(NIV) Isaiah 12: 2-4

Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defence;
he has become my salvation.”
With joy you will draw water
from the wells of salvation.

In that day you will say:

“Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
make known among the nations what he has done,
and proclaim that his name is exalted.

(NIV) 2 Corinthians 9: 9-11

As it is written:

“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor;
their righteousness endures forever.”

Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

20/11/15 Who Do YOU Look Like?

The enemy has a hunger for all things and people on earth, to look and act exactly how he does, for here is the only place that he can be comfortable in himself. He is a liar and a thief.

I AM your King. I have a Kingdom and everyone in that kingdom looks like me and acts like me. When people on this earth, look upon my family, they should see my character and love looking back.

Each of you who speak my name as Saviour, should be aware of the supernatural transformation that is going on in your life. The Holy Spirit has come to live in you, and he will teach you how to speak as I speak, you will learn to walk as I walk, you will see as I see, and you will carry My AUTHORITY.

You cannot look like the world and all the perversions of this world, you cannot be a part of it, in any of its forms, for none of that looks like ME.

My bride will be transformed during this preparation time.

Be transformed and take your place, standing shoulder to shoulder with all the saints in the Kingdom of GOD.

(NIV) John 10: 7-10

Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

(NIV) Luke 6: 46-49

“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”

19/11/15 Protect Yourself with Prayer

When you take a hot dish out the oven, you don’t lift it with bare hands, for you would be badly burned. You would lift it out while wearing a covering of oven gloves.

My sons and daughters, the prayers you release to me, are the spiritual covering you need, in the places where the enemy is trying to drag you through the fires of lies, that he wants you to believe about yourself.

The first place to come will always be to me in prayer, when you speak out, your voice is released into all of heaven, and every protection for you, and your prayer need is automatically released to you.

I want only the best for my family, and I search for your voice among all the prayers that are released to soar unto my throne, every second of every day. I delight in hearing your words and your song.

I AM, listening for your voice right now. Speak and I will hear you.

(NIV) 1 Peter 3: 12

For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
and his ears are attentive to their prayer,
but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”

(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.

18/11/15 The Miracle of Love

When my love is allowed to flow through you, watch as miracle after miracle, is released into your family situations and into your sphere of influence. My love is pure, there are no strings attached, I am not looking for something in return. I want to see your life transformed, from the places of pain and hurt, into the place of victory and peace.

Love has no bounds. Where you, my friend have been used and abused, love enters and takes away the lies of the enemy in every situation. Wrong perceptions have no place to land, for love reveals truth from your heart to another.

Pour out my love, and all those mountains that stifle your view will crumble to dust, for nothing can stand in the face of undying love.

(NIV) 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8a

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.

17/11/15 Holy Spirit Led

Each day you rise from your slumber, you yawn and stretch, a new day lies before you. Do you say hello to me first? Or is it to my, Father? Maybe you talk to the Holy Spirit, or do you pick up the living word and read?

Each and every day should be Holy Spirit led. Your first thought should be wrapped around the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, for He will lead you into a day of victories. If you have a boss who has hardness towards you, Holy Spirit will soften your heart towards that person, and bring restoration, where there was only desolation.

The Holy Spirit is with you 24/7, he wants you to be the best. He wants you to understand all the mysteries of Kingdom living. He wants you, to stand out as that beacon of light to the lost and hungry. He envelops every thought, every action. He leads you on the path that I have set before you.

You my friend, carry the wisdom of the ages, from the beginning of all time, to the very end of days. He lives within you, allow the Holy Spirit the freedom, to move through your life in power, as you burn with fire.

(NIV) Luke 4: 18

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,

(NIV) 1Thessalonians 1: 4-6

For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake. You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit.

16/11/15 Thirsty

There should be an abundance of living streams of water, pouring out continually, saturating each and every one of my family, and yet, my brothers and sisters are thirsty, for there seems to be aridness at times, running down and through the pews of my church.

Why do you hold back what I have given freely? Why do you leave my people thirsty? Why are they hungry? Is power over others more important than the freedom of my family? Who are you to stop my will from touching every life equally?

Release again fully, the raging rivers of thirst quenching saturation, and watch as my family rises as one, equally yoked.

The Holy Spirit is the teacher and comforter, he will teach you all that you need to know for now and the future.

(KJV) John 14: 25-27

These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

13/11/15 Distance

When you feel alone, and the enemy is whispering in your ears, “no one cares”, know that I AM close. If your family lives far away, and you struggle daily with the needs of all around you, constantly being pulled this way and that, know that I AM holding up your arms.

When you think, in your heart, that you are distant from me, know that I AM holding you close to my heart. When you believe that the distance between us is so great, that I cannot, or do not, hear your cry, know that I AM catching every tear as each one is a prayer in itself.

I AM and always will be, in you, surrounding you, embracing you and loving you. There is no distance that can keep me from you.

(NIV) James 4: 6-8a

But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:

“God opposes the proud
but shows favour to the humble.”

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you.

12/11/15 Living Free

What does living free look like?

My family, when your body says it has sickness, freedom says “I am healed by his stripes”. When your minds tries to control your thoughts, and says you can’t do this or go here, freedom says “I can do all things through Christ Jesus”. When that voice speaks fear into all that you try to do and say, freedom tells you “He will fill my mouth with his words”.

When the flesh tries to control your mind and body, freedom says, “live in the SPIRIT and not the flesh”.

Your victory my family, in all things is to live in me, as I live in you. Our relationship is the floor upon which you walk, when you look up, all you can see is the Glory of the Kingdom of God.

Fix your eyes upon ME.

(NIV) Isaiah 53: 5

But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.

(NIV) 1Peter 4: 10-11

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.

(NIV) Romans 8: 4-6

in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.

11/11/15 Nation Changer?

Beloved, will you be my nation changer?

I call you to come higher. I call you to leave your own ideas, thoughts and plans to the side. So many of you have asked for your nation. I would ask you today. Are you willing to pay the price? Many of you have raised the same cry as John Knox, “Give me Scotland or I die!” He awakened not only a nation but changed the face of the church in this world.

Beloved, this is a day when my people will raise their voices, when they will love as I love, where their choices everyday will be those of, and for, my Kingdom. My people will lay down their lives and choose to die to self.

Awake! Awake! Clothe yourself with strength.

Will YOU be my nation changer?

(NIV) Philippians 1:21

For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

(NIV) John 12:25-26

Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honour the one who serves me.

(NIV) Luke 14:25-33

Large crowds were travelling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple. And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.

“Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you, saying, ‘This person began to build and wasn’t able to finish.’
“Or suppose a king is about to go to war against another king. Won’t he first sit down and consider whether he is able with ten thousand men to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand? If he is not able, he will send a delegation while the other is still a long way off and will ask for terms of peace. In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples.

10/11/15 Kingdom Community

My bride, you are being drawn together as a community of believers, who stand with one mind but many bodies. Each has full authority in their ministries, as these were birthed from my heart.

As you all come together in complete unity, I Am in the midst of you and many will come and join what is being built in the valleys and mountains. They will recognise my design being played out in your members. Even world governments will come and ask you to show them, how to move in unity and integrity with one another. My bride you will be the blueprint of Kingdom Community.

(NIV) Ephesians 2: 20-22

built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.

9/11/15 My Splendour

Display My Splendour upon this earth, each of you have been called, anointed and released. You are called to show my splendour through you!

You are my witnesses, when they look at you, they should see me looking back. When they challenge you and even abuse you, they should hear my forgiveness being spoke over them.

When they wound you and even try to take your life, they should see my Love being poured over them.

When they rob you and steal all that you have, they should see my healing being released into their troubled hearts.

My Splendour within you my family, is your light to shine in the darkness, you release me into every life you come into contact with.

(NIV) Acts 1: 7-8

He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

6/11/15 Sheltered

Beloved, I am your shelter from the storm. While all around you rages, I am your place of safety and security. I call you to my side and keep you close to my heart and cover you with my wings. Arrows by day and terrors by night will not come near you or harm you. The thoughtless words of others will simply fall away and those that seek your harm will disappear to become a mere wisp of memory.

Where you are weary, let me take you by the hand and lead you to my place of restoration for your soul. Let me wash away the stresses and strains and bring refreshment and healing. I am your strong tower and I will protect you always.

(NIV) 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.

(NIV) Psalm 91:1, 5

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,

(NKJV) Proverbs 18:10

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.

5/11/15 Flame of Fire

You my family are the flame to my fire.

As my Holy Spirit fills you, and completely envelops your every thought and supernatural sense, you are empowered by all that he carries, fire and power.

Each of you, my burning ones, are the living flames, who ignite in their members the full power, to bring release into your families, villages, towns, cities and nations. There is nothing on this earth that can stand against the burning flame of love that each of you carry.

You have the power and authority to clear out every hospital and wipe out sickness wherever you go.

Speak out and call the fires of salvation, to be loosed over your friends and nation.

Stand back and watch the fires burn.

(NIV) Matthew 3: 11-12

“I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”

4/11/15 I Trust You!

I have created you, washed you, healed you, sanctified you, called you, anointed and enthroned you.

I trust you to be who, I have called you to be, YOU.

Your uniqueness and character birthed through salvation and supernatural righteousness, allows you to walk in places where you once only dreamed of. You walk in the light and carry the miracles to those in need, distributing my love to all. There is no door closed to you, all must open, for you carry the keys to the kingdom.

When you speak, the mountains will tremble, for the supernatural authority that is held in every word you speak, has the power to build up and tear down. Choose your words wisely.

(NIV) 1 Corinthians 2: 12-14

What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.

(NIV) John 14: 10-11

Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.

3/11/15 Friend or Foe?

There are seasons, where it is difficult to recognise, who wants the best for you or the best for them. Do we always recognise friend from foe, or do we need to look at our own heart?

I have placed many people into your life, from birth to old age. These people shape you, your mum and dad they help to care for you and teach you to be like them. Your teachers at school are there to guide you into the learning process, how to speak, count, write, dance, sing, write poetry and become a person, that fits into a well organised society. I have also placed into your life the church, pastors, and teachers, prophets, evangelists and even apostles. Each of these is here to serve you, and bring you to a better place of understanding of Me and My Kingdom.

Some of them have not matched up to your expectation, of what you believe they should look like. I, on the other hand have sent you exactly who you needed, for My plan and purpose is being worked out in your life. Those who have challenged you, made you stronger. Those who hurt you, made you care more for others. Those who rejected you helped you to wrap your arms around the hopeless and dying. Those who scorned you and gossiped about you brought you into complete freedom for you have nothing hidden.

Each one did the job they were called to do.

(NIV) Proverbs 27: 17

As iron sharpens iron,
so one person sharpens another.

(NIV) Romans 8: 28-39

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

2/11/15 Calming the Storm

Do you sense at times there is a storm raging around your life? The waves are big and frightening. They swamp your thoughts and bring confusion. As you strike out and try to reach the surface, you sense you are being pulled back into the storm and waves.

You, my family, carry the authority to command the storm and waves to stop. For you carry my thoughts, and you speak my will into being through the Holy Spirit. There is no place in your life that you are not covered by my love and protection. You are surrounded on all sides like a strong tower. What the enemy throws at you cannot land and can do no damage. Keep your eyes focused upon me and my kingdom.

That mustard seed in your hand develops faith, live in it.

(NIV) Luke 8: 23-25

As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger.

The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”

He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples.

In fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.”

(NIV) Luke 17: 5-6

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”

He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.
