  • Voluntarily submit to any and all changes God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects. (Steps 6 and 7) (Mat 5:6)
  • Step 9. We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. - Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother, then come and offer your gift. (Mat 5:23)
  • Step 10. We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it. - So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall! (1Cor 10:12)
  • Abandonment(56)

  • Our Father's most cherished desire has always been to have a close relationship with his children. He wanted the nation of Israel to come up the mountain and personally get to know him, to be their father. Instead, they just wanted a list of do's and don'ts so they could live their lives apart from him. But that original promise to love and take care of his children still stands for you today. Don't settle for trying to obey his laws; spend time in an intimate relationship with him instead. (Gal 3:17)
  • It doesn't matter how dark the night seems, or how deep the valley goes. You don't need to fear because I am always with you. If you wander away too far, I will reach out and bring you back to me. Be comforted in the fact that I am your shepherd that leads you, your protector and provider, and nothing and no one can withstand my power. (Psa 23:4)
  • You are so beautiful to me. Everything about you is exquisite to me, because I fashioned you just for myself. Every part of you is perfect to me. (Son 4:1)
  • Anger(30)

  • Be careful of people who have an unhealthy interest in controversies, who quarrel about particular words, and who stir up envy, strife, evil speaking and suspicions toward others. If you find them often in the midst of friction between people, stay far away from them. You are called to bring peace wherever you go, so do not seek out trouble or those who cause it. (1Tim 6:4)
  • When a child doesn't like the answer they receive from their parent, they have a habit of asking the same question over and over again. Sometimes you are like that, too; I say "no" or "not yet", but you continue to ask in hopes I will change my mind. I know you don't like it when I don't immediately answer your prayers in the affirmative, and that you sometimes get angry with me for it. But you need to trust that I know what is best. Outside of my timing, your requests will not satisfy you, nor will they fulfill the will of God. (Gal 4:16)
  • I am calling you to rejoice in me always. Do not allow the changing and sometimes upsetting circumstances around you to rob you of your joy. When you are upset, you can be quick tempered, and negative. But I need you to keep your faith in me, and to act in love, patience and gentleness despite what is going on around you. What situation is tempting you to not act in love? (Phi 4:5)
  • Anxiety(95)

  • Reminders of your failures only come from 2 places - the enemy of your soul and your own heart. The Holy Spirit will convict you of sin, but never try to make you feel worthless. He expresses my love for you while reminding you what I have said about sin and righteousness. Our Father will not continue to accuse you of something for which you have repented - He is not angry about what has been forgiven. Trust in His never ending love for you, and the permanence of the salvation I have purchased for you with my own blood. (Psa 103:9)
  • When you learn how to find your fulfillment and joy in me despite your external circumstances, you will enjoy endless peace. You never need to doubt that I will provide for whatever you need, especially the ability to continue in the midst of adversity. A lack of things will never affect you while your trust is placed firmly in my loving kindness, power, and faithfulness. What in your life is making you doubt my faithfulness? (Phi 4:12)
  • Contrary to popular belief, our Father is not an angry God waiting to destroy evil doers. He is compassionate, understanding the flaws and failures of men, and gracious, offering His own power to mankind so His followers can obey Him. Unlike man, He is very slow to become angry because he overflows with love for his creation. He longs for everyone to come to Him for salvation and doesn't want anyone to be separated from Him. Think on His loving-kindness toward you and spend time in praise for his mercy in your life. (Psa 103:8)
  • Authority(39)

  • You never have to worry about being bold when you face opposition. I will give you my boldness with which I responded to those who questioned my authority. Plus, the mark of having my Holy Spirit in you is boldness to be a witness. Who can you witness to today? (1The 2:2)
  • I know that there is no one without sin on earth, but whoever desires to be an overseer of their brothers and sisters must be held to a higher standard. Their conduct is to be above reproach in their family matters as well as in public life. Are you living your life in such a way that, should you be called to do so, you could fill the position of an overseer? (1Tim 3:1)
  • The universe and every person and created thing in it is held together by my power and life. I am before all things, and given authority over all things. Because you belong to me, I share that authority with you. (Col 1:17)
  • Correction(35)

  • Every thing that happens in your life, the good as well as the bad, helps to fashion you into my image. Those who love you, who teach, disciple and even rebuke you, are aching to see my characteristics and gifts evident and active in your life. Surrender to me so that I may work in you, even at times when you are in pain and do not understand, because the end result is that you will be just like me. (Gal 4:19)
  • Most arguments are stupid and futile. Don't waste your time with them. If someone is open to seeing the truth, then my Spirit will convince them of it - without your help. All you need to do is live in obedience to my Spirit, and I will do the rest. (Tit 3:9)
  • There will be times when I will send someone to correct you, because you have wandered away from the truth. It has happened to all of my followers at one time or another, so receive the reproof with humility and submission. I have sent them to you so that you will stop and take a good long look at your life, your words, your thoughts, your actions, and even your belongings, to make sure you are still in the center of my will. (Gal 2:11)
  • Death(16)

  • The times are uncertain and often frightening. So encourage one another with the truth not only about life, but about death. It is a temporary separation from loved ones, and a permanent reunion with me. There is no reason to be afraid. (1The 4:18)
  • Although I know you want to be physically in my presence, I have need of you right where you are. I created you for a specific purpose, and until that purpose is completed, you need to stay where I put you. I will lead you and guide you as you remain in me until the day that I bring you home. (Phi 1:23)
  • When you feel like you are sinking, I will pull you up. I will draw you out of the deep waters of hurt and depression and fear and pull you to myself. You are mine, and I will always protect you. Just call out my name. (Psa 18:16)
  • Depression(50)

  • No matter what happened yesterday, or what bad choices you may make today, tomorrow holds a brand new opportunity to start again and make it about Me. I am the God of second, third and a thousand chances, and I live to be merciful and loving toward you. Do not give up hope. (Lam 3:22)
  • I am breathing peace upon you. I give my peace to you so you will have it with you in every situation, dealing with every person. It is always available for you through my Holy Spirit - just surrender to Him, and trust the Father and I to take care of what is important to you. Do not let your heart be troubled over anything - trust in me and be surrounded with my peace. (Joh 14:27)
  • You will play an integral part in building the faith of those whom I will bring to you. You will be a source of hope and joy as you model your trust and belief in me through your outward actions and your words. Trust in me as I put you in situations where I need you to be faithful to your calling and my plan for your life. (Phi 1:25)
  • Discipline(55)

  • Your flesh will always want whatever it wants, like a toddler. It will never change. There will always be a struggle for it to be satisfied. So you must find ways to be satisfied in Me, at peace because you are filled with Me. Worship me, give thanks to me, soak in my presence - do whatever it takes in the spirit to be filled with me so you do not give in to the cravings of the flesh. (Psa 63:5)
  • Your faith in the Father and I has made you righteous. Surrendering to the leading of the Holy Spirit living within you enables you to instinctively know what is right and act accordingly. You don't need to worry about breaking God's law when you desire to love God and love others, because love does no harm to anyone and fulfills all of the law. Live by faith, in close communion to God, and you will find yourself living in this world as I did. (Gal 3:25)
  • It is rare when I find believers who honestly and truly look to the interests of others above their own interests. It is so hard to move beyond the human need to put your own needs before that of others. But that is why you need my Spirit in you to accomplish that. In your own flesh, it is futile to try and put others first, but with me, all things are possible. (Phi 2:21)
  • Encouragement(78)

  • When you feel like you are drowning in emotions that seem to pull you downward, remember that they are only feelings, and I am greater than your heart. Hopelessness only lives in a mind that has forgotten about me, because with me ALL things are possible. Praise me, and put your hope in my unfailing loving kindness toward you and my endless power, because unlike everything else you place your hope in, I will not disappoint you. (Psa 43:5)
  • The Father ordained that everyone that He brings to Me should remain with me forever. No one will be lost that has placed their faith and trust in me as Lord and Savior. I will raise up all who belong to me in the last day, and carry them away to live with me in my kingdom. Then we will never again be apart, but remain together throughout eternity. (Joh 6:39)
  • Sometimes, the hardest people to love are those closest to you. However, these are the ones who deserve and need your selfless giving the most. Do not neglect ministry to your family in favor of ministry to outsiders. Love your family in practical ways that let them know they are important and cherished by you. (Tit 2:4)
  • Faith(238)

  • Your God and your destiny are intertwined. If you acknowledge that I am your God, by humbling yourself before me, trusting and obeying me out of love for me, your destination is heaven. If, however, you are your own god, and you live to fulfill your own desires, trusting only in yourself as your supreme authority, then your destination is hell. Don't let your mind settle on earthly things, but always set your eyes on me, the author and perfecter of your faith. (Phi 3:19)
  • Continue to study my word, and to memorize it. I want you to understand not only the individual sayings, but understand my mind and the way that I think. I want you to have my heart toward others so that you will love them as I love them. Knowing my words without understanding them and acting on them in love is useless. (2Tim 2:15)
  • Be careful to protect the words I have given you, and to continually place your faith in them. Do not listen to myths or regulations that other people want to place on you. These are a rejection of my truth, so do not trust in anything other than my word. (Tit 1:14)
  • Fear(95)

  • When you entered into a relationship with me by faith, you received every spiritual blessing I have to offer. I promised never to leave nor forsake you, and to take care of everything which you entrust to me. No one else can ever take away what I have given to you or promised you, nor can they give you more that I can give. For all eternity, I am yours and you are mine, and everything I have I share with you. Decide today to faithfully use the spiritual gifts I have given to you in service to me. (Gal 3:15)
  • When you doubt my presence in your life, or that I exist, search within yourself and let my spirit comfort you. If my spirit lives in you, then you live in me and my father. (1Joh 4:13)
  • You can get through anything today, because you don't have to do it through your own strength. You can do it through my Spirit within you. Can you praise me right now for how I will carry you through this? (Zec 4:6)
  • For Men(2)

  • Husbands must remember what first drew them to their wives, what made them love her. I call them to treat her as they did when they courted her, and not as though she is some type of obstacle that is blocking them from getting what then want. They need to come to me for all of their needs, and I will provide them. (Col 3:19)
  • Husbands must love their wives sacrificially, in a way that will cost them something, especially their time. Love shouldn't be given only when it's convenient, with nothing else to do. They must make time for her, and not begrudge it. (Col 3:19)
  • For Women(10)

  • I can't wait until I can hold you in my arms and embrace you. You are my beloved one, my sister and my love. (Son 2:6)
  • What makes a woman beautiful is her continued faith in me, expressed in her love for others, and a life marked with holiness. She is radiant in her righteousness, fit to be my bride. Strive for this internal beauty that will last forever. (1Tim 2:15)
  • It is important to me that women dress modestly, not suggestively or inappropriately. Women should always dress to please me, not to attract sexual attention to themselves. I will bring them the right person at the right time, so they do not have to draw people with their looks. (1Tim 2:9)
  • Forgiveness(26)

  • My desire is to reconcile everyone back to my father. I opened the way to accomplish this by shedding my blood on the cross. Tell everyone you know how they can be reconciled to the Father through me. (Col 1:20)
  • The past has played its part in forming who you are in the natural, but it does not have to define who you are now or will be in the future. It is important to go back for a season to what happened to you so you may face it and be healed from it, but never stay chained to it. Once I reveal and begin healing you from it, leave it behind and stretch yourself to move forward, toward my future and my calling for you. (Phi 3:13)
  • Because you are now a child of God, we only see you as part of our family. You are not seen in regard to religious creed, sex, race or any other earthly designation. We look at you and recognize the family resemblance - righteous and forgiven, filled with the Holy Spirit. You are one with us, and we are one with you; my shed blood binds us together forever. You can rest secure in your place in our family. (Gal 3:28)
  • Giving(36)

  • When you remember all I have done for you, where I have brought you out from, and how much I love you, it should result in overflowing gratitude. You should also feel compassion for those who are now where you were before you met me. Be patient, kind, and merciful to them as I have been to you. (Col 3:12)
  • The greatest gift you can have on this earth is contentment with what you have. If you are living in a way that pleases me, and you have the necessities of life, that is enough for you. Be grateful for every single thing that I have provided for you, and do not focus on what you do not have, because that will lead you into bitterness, anger, and envy. Has your focus been drifting lately? (1Tim 6:6)
  • I have spoken to you about your future, giving you hopes and dreams so that you can recall them when you're struggling and fight the battle well. Just because you are not seeing the fulfillment of those dreams right now doesn't mean they will not come to pass. Sometimes my answer is not yes or no, but not now. Trust me with your future. (1Tim 1:18)
  • Grief(20)

  • Although I know you want to be physically in my presence, I have need of you right where you are. I created you for a specific purpose, and until that purpose is completed, you need to stay where I put you. I will lead you and guide you as you remain in me until the day that I bring you home. (Phi 1:23)
  • I know you wonder what it will be like when I return. I will come down from heaven with a loud command, and you will hear the voice of the Archangel and the trumpet call of God. The dead who believed in me will rise first and we will all be reunited. It will be glorious! (1The 4:16)
  • I am coming back for you. I told you before that I have gone to prepare a place for you to live with me forever. Those believers who have already passed on in death will be there with me to meet you. What incredible rejoicing there will be! (1The 4:15)
  • Healing(5)

  • The past has played its part in forming who you are in the natural, but it does not have to define who you are now or will be in the future. It is important to go back for a season to what happened to you so you may face it and be healed from it, but never stay chained to it. Once I reveal and begin healing you from it, leave it behind and stretch yourself to move forward, toward my future and my calling for you. (Phi 3:13)
  • Your patience with the suffering of others publicly sets you apart. People enduring illness often feel so vulnerable and isolated, fearful, exhausted and overwhelmed. They are rarely at their best, and it would be very easy to get annoyed with them. But I call you to go with them not only one mile, but two. Forgive their ill humor or bad mood that pushes everyone else away, and move closer - close enough to touch them with my selfless, endless love. (Gal 4:14)
  • This world is temporary and fleeting. People come and go, and life still goes on. This may seem like a cruelty, but you are just a visitor, an alien in this world. You are now a spiritual person with a physical body, my emissary working on my behalf in this natural world until you return to live forever with me. Make the most of your time here, but do not think this is all there is. Your heavenly mansion, your complete healing, your reunion with loved ones still awaits you. (Psa 103:16)
  • Heaven(25)

  • Everything in heaven and on earth, seen and unseen, was created by my father and I. All of the rulers and people with power and authority have been placed there by my father, to accomplish His will. You can trust that he knows what he is doing in your life. (Col 1:16)
  • Our Father loves to hear you call Him "Daddy." When you acknowledge that He is your Father in heaven, the One who loves you more than anyone else, who will provide for all of your needs and protect you, it allows you to move even closer to Him. It is healthy to be like a little child who wants to run to his Father, because He is a Father who never turns His children away. Run to Him now and spend time in His presence. (Gal 4:6)
  • Nothing you can do with your body can get you into heaven. Salvation from the penalty, power and presence of sin in your life comes only from repenting of your sins, acknowledging that I am the Son of God who paid for your sins with my sacrificial death, as well as surrendering your life and submitting your decisions to me as your Lord. Once you belong to me, "works" will automatically flow out of you by the power of my Spirit. (Gal 2:16)
  • Holiness(120)

  • It is the will of our father that you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not giving in to every desire and feeling. You belong to him, and you are not your own and that means that your body belongs to him to be used as he directs. What areas of yourself have you been keeping from our father? (1The 4:4)
  • Every day belongs to the Lord, not just celebrated holy days. In every moment, you are to live for me, remembering my sacrificial death and celebrating my resurrection. You don't have to wait for a church to pass out bread and wine to have communion with me. Through my Holy Spirit within you, unceasingly communicate with me and every day will be a high holy day of the Lord. (Gal 4:10)
  • Faith is the only thing that matters in your life. Everything you do must be in trusting response to my will, which I will make known to you. You can't, at any time, substitute your own works for obeying me. There is no action you can take or thing you can offer that will make up for rejecting my instructions to you. I require that you be merciful to others, do the right thing, and walk humbly in obedience to me at all times. (Gal 2:17)
  • Hope(34)

  • I am coming back for you. I told you before that I have gone to prepare a place for you to live with me forever. Those believers who have already passed on in death will be there with me to meet you. What incredible rejoicing there will be! (1The 4:15)
  • Our father rescued you from your sins, and then called you to live a life separated for and dedicated to him - but not because you earned it. Before time began, he predestined your specific purpose in his plan, and supernaturally empowers you to fulfill it by remaining in submission to me. (2Tim 1:9)
  • Do not quench the Spirit by trying to ignore him or disobeying him. He is your only hope for living a holy life. He provides you the wisdom and strength you need to get through the day, and will empower you to love others as only I can. What has the Spirit been trying to say to you? (1The 5:19)
  • Humility(12)

  • Your God and your destiny are intertwined. If you acknowledge that I am your God, by humbling yourself before me, trusting and obeying me out of love for me, your destination is heaven. If, however, you are your own god, and you live to fulfill your own desires, trusting only in yourself as your supreme authority, then your destination is hell. Don't let your mind settle on earthly things, but always set your eyes on me, the author and perfecter of your faith. (Phi 3:19)
  • There will be times when I speak things to you that I do not want you to share with others. I simply want you to listen and obey. It will be a temptation for you to speak of it to others, in order to get their approval. But if I have spoken to you clearly, and you are sure of your purpose, simply surrender and obey. (Gal 1:17)
  • I know it is easy to be tempted to revenge when someone else has wronged you, especially, if you know you were in the right. One of the greatest ways to apply your faith is to respond with a blessing. Moreover, be an example to others who may be with you in times of trouble so that they can glorify the Father in Heaven. Learn to trust me with all your heart, even in trouble. (Rom 12:19)
  • Joy(26)

  • I have seen your tears, and I long to hold you in my arms so that I may be filled with joy. It is only a short time and we will be together forever. Keep your eyes on me, your savior, your Lord, the author and perfecter of your faith, for I am returning for you soon. Look for my coming! (2Tim 1:4)
  • You please me most when you are living out your sincere faith. Trusting in me for everything that is important to you brings me great joy. Loving others as I have loved you makes me unbelievably proud. Continue to serve me with all of your heart. (2Tim 1:5)
  • As I fill you with my love for our Father and for others, and teach you more about myself and my heart's desires, you will begin to act just like me. You will have more joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control as you surrender to my Spirit's will, and allow my love to flow through you. As you stand clothed in my righteousness before our Father, you will bring glory, honor and praise to Him. (Phi 1:11)
  • Judgement(40)

  • It is exhausting to try and do everything perfectly in your own strength. You were never made to do that - you were made to rely upon the Father and utilize the power of His Spirit within you. Once you start living legalistically, judging yourself by the works you have done on His behalf, it is a game you can never win. Those who try to live by the letter of the law live a cursed life. You, however, are destined for the blessed life, a life lived by faith. (Gal 3:10)
  • When in a position of power, it is easy to fall into the trap of taking advantage of others. But I demand that you be fair and good, so that those who work under you see me in you, and praise their father in Heaven for you. (Col 4:1)
  • Our father doesn't judge you the way that people do. They make up rules to make themselves feel like they are better than other people, like what people can eat or touch. But that is not from our father, who is more concerned with you expressing your faith in him through loving him and others. (Col 2:21)
  • Love(170)

  • Honor those in the church who have dedicated themselves to the welfare of the brothers and sisters, especially those who preach and teach. They are my mouth pieces, transferring the word of God from my mind to that of my people. Determine today one way that you can show your appreciation for their work and dedication. (1Tim 5:17)
  • You cannot love people in your own strength. My agape love is a spiritual love, and flesh is incapable of it. Your love will dwindle, and eventually you will lose patience and become cold toward others. So call upon my Spirit to continually re-fill you with the same love I have for the Father and for you. Then pour yourself out upon others without measure, and I will fill you over and over again. (Gal 4:15)
  • As I fill you with my love for our Father and for others, and teach you more about myself and my heart's desires, you will begin to act just like me. You will have more joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control as you surrender to my Spirit's will, and allow my love to flow through you. As you stand clothed in my righteousness before our Father, you will bring glory, honor and praise to Him. (Phi 1:11)
  • Mercy(13)

  • My promises are only for those who live by their faith in me. If you don't trust in me, in my goodness, faithfulness, loving kindness, mercy and my power, you won't trust in my promises. Not living by faith in what I have said is like refusing to reach out and take a costly gift which I have laid before you. Be like Abraham, and trust that I will keep my promises to you. But that also entails acting upon that assurance that things will happen according to my timing. (Gal 3:16)
  • It is not enough to have kindly thoughts towards someone in need, to feel compassion for their situation and not to express it in a practical way. If you have the opportunity to do something about it, then do it. Remember that you are a part of a larger body, and you must take care of one another. Put yourself in their place and act as you would want someone else to act on your behalf. (Phi 4:10)
  • Our Father knows what His children are made of, both literally and figuratively. He formed you from the dust of the ground, as is proven by comparing the elements found in the earth's crust and your physical body. But more crucially, He understands your failings and flaws because I became a man and experienced every temptation and emotion you experience. I am the high priest that truly empathizes with your struggles, so come and share with me your heart's cries, knowing I truly understand. (Psa 103:14)
  • MY PRIVATE MESSAGES ONLY(0)

    Obedience(405)

  • I have appointed you to my service, so I will always provide you with my strength. Because you have placed your daily trust in me for everything that is important to you, I consider you trustworthy to receive and fulfill my calling on your life. Continue to trust in me. (1Tim 1:12)
  • Life IS hard to swallow sometimes. Like bland food, it needs some salt. Salt it with My Word. It will taste better, I promise. It will go down easier and last longer. (Luk 14:34)
  • You have no clue how high the heavens are. In the same way, you simply cannot grasp how high and wide and deep is our love for you. We have taught you the word infinity, but your mind is too finite to understand the concept. Continue in healthy fear of the Father, remain in awe of our power and might, desire to obey us because you do not want to disappoint us, but always remember that our love for you is far beyond anything you can comprehend. (Psa 103:11)
  • Patience(68)

  • I need you to step out in faith in me and share my word with others. You must study it and memorize it in order to be prepared whenever anyone asks you about me. I will lead you regarding when you should give a word of correction or rebuke or encouragement, but listen to my Spirit's instructions, and act with great patience. (2Tim 4:2)
  • The father and I are always so proud of your growing faith, and how much greater your love is now than it was when you first came to know us. But your faith only grows when it is challenged, so do not be surprised when more challenges come your way. And love only becomes a habit when you are continually challenged to give yourself away for people who care nothing for you. What is your faith/love challenge today? (2The 1:3)
  • There will be times when I will hold you back from going to certain places, or meeting with certain people. There is a time and a season and a purpose for everything I do and do not do. Simply listen and obey, go when I say go, follow when I say follow. Trust my timing for everything in your life. In what area of your life are you tempted to rush ahead of me? (Gal 1:18)
  • Peace(37)

  • Don't be afraid of suffering. It is what perfected my obedience when I walked on the earth, and will perfect you as well. But you will never be comfortless at those times; I will be with you always, my Spirit filling you with my peace and wrapping His arms around you with my love. You are never alone. (2Tim 2:3)
  • When you have me living in you, you have access to my supernatural power, my loving kindness, and my peace. But you can't access them when you are handling things in your own strength. Surrender and let me handle things for you. (2Joh 1:3)
  • When we created you, we created you for love, joy, peace, and fellowship with us. You were never intended to be separated from us. Your destiny is not to suffer wrath, but receive the many blessings that come with your salvation. How can I bless you now? (1The 5:9)
  • Power(85)

  • It does not matter who you were before, or how bad you were, or how poorly you treated others. When you come to me, I wipe the slate clean spiritually, and everything becomes new. You become a new creation, in my image and for my pleasure. I can use even your past to bring my will to pass in your life and in the lives of others. Just trust me. (Gal 1:13)
  • Not only are you saved by my grace, but my divine empowerment also gives you the ability to say "No" to the temptations of the world, your flesh and the enemy. More than just resisting ungodliness, my grace empowers you to be self-controlled and obedient, reflecting my righteousness. In what area of your life do you need to tap into my power to overcome temptation? (Tit 2:12)
  • I alone possess immortality and live in unapproachable light. No man has ever seen me in all of my glory. I am all-powerful and worthy of all honor and glory. Take time now to praise me for all that I am! (1Tim 6:16)
  • Praise and Worship(30)

  • Bless me, sing to me, let me hear your voice raised up to the heavens to bring me praise. For I have done great things, not only for others in the past, but for you personally as well. It is by my power that you have been saved. Praise my name! (Psa 98:1)
  • It is impossible to remain in my peace when you are constantly thinking about everything that is wrong. That is why I command you to think on everything that is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, and excellent. These things remind you of my past goodness toward you, so you can trust in my future continued faithfulness towards you. To gain and keep your peace, praise me and pray to me in faith continually. (Phi 4:8)
  • Always remember that I came to earth in the flesh, was testified about by the Holy Spirit, seen by angels, and have been preached among the Nations. I have been believed on in the world, and I was taken up in glory. I am your God and King, the lion and the lamb, the Lord of Glory. Worship me today. (1Tim 3:16)
  • Prayer(54)

  • Be careful that you do not slide down the slippery slope of flesh indulgence. Giving in a little here and there moves you further and further away from the presence and power of God. Eventually, you find yourself a slave again to the things from which you were rescued and wonder how it happened. Take every thought captive and make sure it is pleasing to the Father. In the face of temptation, take a few slow breaths, pray in the Spirit, and surrender to His leading. (Gal 4:9)
  • You used to be a slave to every urge and thought that came to you, to every spirit of the enemy that would come to distract and confuse you, but not now. Now that you belong to the Father, and His Spirit lives in you, you have the power to resist the devil so he will flee from you. When you feel yourself sliding back into fleshly responses, call out to the Father, pray and surrender to whatever the Spirit says to you. You are no longer your own, because you have been bought with a price. (Gal 4:8)
  • Our Father loves to hear you call Him "Daddy." When you acknowledge that He is your Father in heaven, the One who loves you more than anyone else, who will provide for all of your needs and protect you, it allows you to move even closer to Him. It is healthy to be like a little child who wants to run to his Father, because He is a Father who never turns His children away. Run to Him now and spend time in His presence. (Gal 4:6)
  • Pride(8)

  • I know you could list off the reasons to be proud of yourself, the things you have done right all on your own. But they are nothing to boast about. Recounting to yourself and others your accomplishments is a sign of your own insecurity in me, your thoughts and fears that you are not enough just as you are, and have to keep on bolstering your self-worth through your achievements. All that matters is what I have achieved in and through you by my Spirit. Stop striving and let me be your source of worth today. (Phi 3:4)
  • Although you carry with you my authority everywhere you go, I do not want you to be puffed up with pride. I don't want you acting like you are better than anyone else, or more mature. Instead become as a young child, accepting others as greater than yourself, and loving them. Is there any attitude for which you need to repent? (1The 2:7)
  • There are those who oppose and ridicule the truth of my word. Their minds are depraved, and they reject knowledge of me. But it is not long before they expose themselves for the foolish people they are. Let me deal with them, and do not try to change their mind. Stay far away from them. (2Tim 3:9)
  • Purpose(49)

  • Part of the purpose of you belonging to me is to be a part of my body. I need you to encourage those around you, and build them up. I also want you to allow other people into your life so that they may encourage you. Who are you holding at a distance right now? (1The 5:11)
  • I saved you and called you to a holy life solely because I love you, not because of anything you have done for me. I created you with a specific kingdom purpose, and have filled you with my spirit to empower you to fulfill that purpose. Every day, remember that I am waiting to give you instructions to accomplish my will - listen for me, pay attention, and then obey me. (2Tim 1:9)
  • People will learn everything they need to know about you by watching you. Your way of life must reflect my purpose for you, your faith in me, your patience with others, your love for me and others, and your willingness to endure hardship for my sake. You are my letter which I have written for all of the world to read. Live for Me. (2Tim 3:10)
  • Rejection(27)

  • Through all of your earthly struggles, remember that a rest is coming for you when you will no longer have to deal with them. You will be with the father and I forever. Just think of the day I will come in the clouds from heaven with the angels to take you home with me. Until then, rest in me and I will bring you through everything myself. (2The 1:7)
  • You are so beautiful to me. Everything about you is exquisite to me, because I fashioned you just for myself. Every part of you is perfect to me. (Son 4:1)
  • I know you hear in your head all of the things that you have done wrong, but I speak on your behalf to our Father. I tell him you belong to me and that is all that matters. (1Joh 2:1)
  • Repentance(11)

  • If someone does not agree with you in regard to my truth, do not try to overpower them by force. You must instruct them gently, and I by my spirit will lead them to repentance, so they can enter into a knowledge of me and my truth. Only then can they come to an understanding of my kingdom. (2Tim 2:25)
  • Our Father knows how frail you are, how your flesh will always want to do whatever it wants, and that you continually face a battle against your own body, as well as self-centered thoughts and attitudes. He doesn't punish you for every sin, nor for your natural bent toward selfishness and rebellion. He loves you just as you are, and knows that, without His supernatural power in your life, you could never live for Him. So keep running back to Him in repentance, asking to be continually filled with His Spirit so you don't walk according to the flesh. (Psa 103:10)
  • Out of our Father's love for all of mankind, he sent me, his Son, to pay for the sins of everyone. But only those who believe that my death paid for their sins, and who repent of their sins (truly don't want to sin anymore) and surrender to me as Lord over their life, have that payment applied to their debt. This is the only true gospel, and should anyone tell you that you must do anything else in order to be saved, you must not believe it. (Gal 1:6)
  • Righteousness(211)

  • Everyone lives by their own code, or by a code that someone else has set for them. Some people believe that I have a set of rules and regulations that, if they follow them, will allow them to get into heaven. But I have only one two-part rule - LISTEN and OBEY. My commands for you personally can change from situation to situation, so live by every word that proceeds from my mouth. (Gal 2:19)
  • Be careful of your natural desires and affections, because they can become your God. Anything that consumes your thoughts can become an idol. Commit yourself to get rid of your selfish thoughts and actions. (Col 3:5)
  • Direct your thoughts heavenward, toward me, and my kingdom. Don't get caught up in the temporal, earth-bound cares about material things, or what other people think. Keep your mind set on what will be here for you forever - me and our father. (Col 3:2)
  • Salvation(124)

  • I do not want anyone to perish, and yet there are those who refuse to believe the truth, and love lies instead. They would rather create their own kingdom and be in control of their lives than be a part of my kingdom, and surrender their life. That is why it is so important for you to openly live a life surrendered to me, so others may learn the way to eternal life. (2The 2:10)
  • Whoever comes to me, I will keep with me forever. I will not cast them away from me. So you are safe with me if you have entrusted yourself to my care. Rest in my faithfulness. (Joh 6:37)
  • Those who have been entrapped by the devil cannot be stolen from his grasp by the force of your words or your will. It will take gentle instruction and sincere love for them. It is my kindness that leads them to repentance, and is their only hope of coming to their senses and escaping the trap of the enemy. (2Tim 2:26)
  • Security(7)

  • When you came to me in faith, you were no longer held accountable to the tyrannical rules of the law. By my indwelling Spirit you are led, moment by moment, according to my instruction about what to do in every situation. So do not go back to trying to figure out what is right and wrong on your own. Instead, show that you love me with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and show that you love those around you as you want me to love you. (Gal 4:12)
  • When you learn how to find your fulfillment and joy in me despite your external circumstances, you will enjoy endless peace. You never need to doubt that I will provide for whatever you need, especially the ability to continue in the midst of adversity. A lack of things will never affect you while your trust is placed firmly in my loving kindness, power, and faithfulness. What in your life is making you doubt my faithfulness? (Phi 4:12)
  • I know it is easy to be tempted to revenge when someone else has wronged you, especially, if you know you were in the right. One of the greatest ways to apply your faith is to respond with a blessing. Moreover, be an example to others who may be with you in times of trouble so that they can glorify the Father in Heaven. Learn to trust me with all your heart, even in trouble. (Rom 12:19)
  • Servanthood(26)

  • Do not be enslaved to anything of this world or of the enemy; only be a voluntary slave to me. Everything you do outside my will is wasted effort, for it does not further the plan of our Father. Kingdom purposes alone produce the works that will last throughout eternity. Listen to and obey my Spirit, and He will guide you into ways to make an everlasting difference in this world. (Rom 6:18)
  • There will be times when I will hold you back from going to certain places, or meeting with certain people. There is a time and a season and a purpose for everything I do and do not do. Simply listen and obey, go when I say go, follow when I say follow. Trust my timing for everything in your life. In what area of your life are you tempted to rush ahead of me? (Gal 1:18)
  • By taking on the form of man, and obeying even if it meant giving up my life, I was able to show you how to humble yourself through obedience. Humility before God means acknowledging that He and His will is of great importance because He is our Creator and Sustainer. Humility before people means acknowledging that you are not the most important person, and that others are just as important to God, and should always be treated with value and dignity. (Phi 2:8)
  • Sin(193)

  • For the unbelieving, wickedness feels good. Sin is pleasurable for a season, but then comes the wages of sin which is death. Too many love their wickedness, and therefore refuse to see the truth and come to me. Pray for them that their eyes may be opened, and that they may not die from their wickedness, but will repent and take me as their lord and savior. (2The 2:12)
  • It is rare when I find believers who honestly and truly look to the interests of others above their own interests. It is so hard to move beyond the human need to put your own needs before that of others. But that is why you need my Spirit in you to accomplish that. In your own flesh, it is futile to try and put others first, but with me, all things are possible. (Phi 2:21)
  • You were dead in your sin until I saved you. But when you placed your faith in me, the person who didn't care about pleasing God died, and a new person who longs to please God was born. Show me today that you care about pleasing me. (Col 2:12)
  • Strength(47)

  • The father and I want to work in you to make you worthy of your calling to be a part of our kingdom. By our own power, we will fulfill every desire you have to be good and righteous and holy. We will empower you in every work you perform out of faith in and obedience to what we say to you. Do you understand that we never ask you to do something without giving you the power to do it? What do you need us to empower you for today? (2The 1:11)
  • Don't be unsettled by the trials you are facing. I have told you that those who believe in and belong to me are destined for struggles. But remember that I have overcome the world, so you can overcome it as well through Me. What struggle is the most pressing right now? (1The 3:3)
  • I want to strengthen you so that you will have endurance and patience. My power comes from God's glorious might, which can get you through any situation and help you deal with any person. (Col 1:11)
  • Submission(30)

  • When you entered into a relationship with me by faith, you received every spiritual blessing I have to offer. I promised never to leave nor forsake you, and to take care of everything which you entrust to me. No one else can ever take away what I have given to you or promised you, nor can they give you more that I can give. For all eternity, I am yours and you are mine, and everything I have I share with you. Decide today to faithfully use the spiritual gifts I have given to you in service to me. (Gal 3:15)
  • Those who minister on my behalf full-time are deserving of financial and material support. They take care of your spiritual needs, oversee your souls and trust me to provide for their needs. I will use you and my provision in your life to help provide for them. Don't ever think for one moment that you have earned your money apart from my favor. So spend your money as I direct you as well. (Phi 4:16)
  • When you came to me in faith, you were no longer held accountable to the tyrannical rules of the law. By my indwelling Spirit you are led, moment by moment, according to my instruction about what to do in every situation. So do not go back to trying to figure out what is right and wrong on your own. Instead, show that you love me with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and show that you love those around you as you want me to love you. (Gal 4:12)
  • Suffering(61)

  • The Holy Spirit continually directs your thoughts toward the love of God for you, and your heart toward the love of God flowing through you. He also wants to encourage and empower you to endure through the hard times. Let Him lead you where I need you to follow - trust him. (2The 3:5)
  • Don't worry about those who cause you problems. We've got this, and we will deal with them in our own way and time. The father and I will repay with affliction those who afflict you. You just concern yourself with living righteously for me, and leave the rest to us. (2The 1:6)
  • I know you don't understand it all, but you don't have to. I know what's best for you. Just turn it all over to Me. (Pro 3:5)
  • Temptation(84)

  • I want my Spirit to rain on you and saturate you through and through. Be still in my presence and let me pour my Spirit out upon you generously. In my Spirit is my life, my power, my love. Stop struggling and just soak. (Tit 3:6)
  • I understand your temptations much better than you think I do. But don't fall into that trap. You've got to stay in love with me, not the world. (1Joh 2:15)
  • When people recognize how you have made such a marked change in your life, and don't do the things you used to do or that others do, people will talk about it. And that is good, I want them to talk about it. It is how I am glorified. (1The 1:9)
  • Thanksgiving(27)

  • I cannot urge you often enough to be praying for others - people you know well and people you know casually. Ask me to do things for these people, to intercede on their behalf with the father. Give thanks for them because I have placed them in your life for a particular reason. Who can you pray for right now? (1Tim 2:1)
  • I want you to be so filled with me that everyone around you marvels - not at you - but at me. They will boast about what I have done in your life and the marvelous transformation that I brought about in you. Everywhere you go, let your love so shine that everyone around you gives thanks for your father in heaven. (Phi 1:26)
  • When you face trials and suffering, you have one weapon that no one can take away. It is the fact that you personally know who I am. You have experienced that I am trustworthy and keep my promises, and that I am faithful to take care of you and everything that is important to you. Remind yourself constantly of the ways that I have proved myself to you. (2Tim 1:12)
  • Unity(2)

  • Discord in the body of Christ can undermine what I want to accomplish. If you know that there are members who have problems with each other, and those issues will affect the unity of the body, then leadership needs to address those issues. You are all called to the ministry of reconciliation, which includes bringing people together on account of the Gospel. They don't need to agree on everything, only agree to set aside their differences in order to serve me better. (Phi 4:3)
  • You think that small disagreements between you and your brothers and sisters don't really mean much, but they create discord and disunity in my body. Unity doesn't always mean sharing the same ideas, but allowing others to have differing opinions. Sometimes you simply need to agree to disagree in order to keep the peace in the body. (Phi 4:2)
  • Victory(49)

  • I want your love for your brothers and sisters, as well as everyone else, to increase so much that it overflows. I want you to experience the kind of outpouring of love that the father and I feel for you. But this will only happen when you surrender to my spirit within you, and let my love flow through you. Who is the hardest person for you to love? (1The 3:12)
  • I came to empower you to live righteously. The enemy is always trying to destroy you, but I came specifically to destroy the enemy's work. Don't give in to his lies and deception. (1Joh 3:8)
  • Consider your prayers as a weapon of warfare, battling for the maturity and well-being of your brothers and sisters. Pray that they know and understand my will. Cover them in prayer continually. (Col 4:12)
  • Wisdom(71)

  • There are people who will turn away from my word, preferring instead to make up stories about who I am and how the world works. The universe, as they call it, is their attempt to fabricate a god who does not correct or rebuke them or require anything of them. Do not allow them to turn you aside to these false myths. (2Tim 4:4)
  • It is so easy to get distracted by things that don't go your way, but that leads to grumbling and complaining which does NOTHING to glorify our good Father. The rain falls on the just and the unjust alike, but only those who have entrusted themselves to the care of the Father can be sure that every obstacle and hindrance can be used to make you more like me. Choose praise and prayer over grumbling and complaining every time. (Phi 2:14)
  • Whenever you perform tasks for other people, especially at your job, do it as though I was your supervisor. Do it joyfully, with all of your energy, and give your employer everything they have paid for and more. (Col 3:22)
  • Witnessing(85)

  • You need to keep your wits about you at all times. When situations go wrong, you must keep your head and not react but determine to continue to act as I would. No matter what happens, spread my word to all whom I bring to you, and faithfully fulfill your calling. Remain steadfast in me. (2Tim 4:5)
  • Although the father and I love you without measure, we also love the people around you. We want them to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth of who I am and why I died for them. We need you to live your life in such a way that you draw people's attention to us, and it gives them a reason to want to learn more about the father and I. (1Tim 2:4)
  • You should speak with the assurance and boldness of those approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. You are not to try and please people, only me, who tests your heart. Pray for the words to say, and listen for my leading regarding when to talk. (1The 2:4)
  • Worry(37)

  • Don't put your trust in other people and other relationships - that will always lead to disappointment. People come and go, and do not have control over their own actions or what will happen to them. But you can completely trust in and rely upon me, because I will never, never, never leave you or abandon you. (Heb 13:5)
  • Your flesh will always want whatever it wants, like a toddler. It will never change. There will always be a struggle for it to be satisfied. So you must find ways to be satisfied in Me, at peace because you are filled with Me. Worship me, give thanks to me, soak in my presence - do whatever it takes in the spirit to be filled with me so you do not give in to the cravings of the flesh. (Psa 63:5)
  • When you feel like you are sinking, I will pull you up. I will draw you out of the deep waters of hurt and depression and fear and pull you to myself. You are mine, and I will always protect you. Just call out my name. (Psa 18:16)
  •
