  • Step 6. We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. - Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up. (Jam 4:10)
  • Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and my words. (Step 12) (Mat 5:10)
  • Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust. (Steps 4 and 5) (Mat 5:8)
  • Abandonment(58)

  • 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)
  • The entire reason that I died for you is so you may live with me forever. At work or in play, awake or asleep, in life or in death, you and I are always together. When you feel alone, call out to me, pray to me, and I will answer you. Do you want to talk with me now? (1The 5:10)
  • 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)
  • Anger(33)

  • Everyone starts out foolish and disobedient, being deceived and enslaved by their desires and feelings. In the natural, selfish thoughts cause envy and anger which devolve into hatred. I do not expect perfection from you, but I do expect progress in these areas as you learn to listen to, obey and remain in me more continually. (Tit 3:3)
  • 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)
  • There will be times when you feel as though everyone has deserted you, and no one came to support you in your time of need. But I command you not to hold this against them. Every person has their own path that they must walk, and although their paths may cross yours for a season, few will remain on the road with you. Let them and the hurt go. (2Tim 4:16)
  • Anxiety(99)

  • It is foolish to trust in material possessions. All of your money and material goods could be gone in an instant. Who do you think brought you those things? I am the only one in whom you can place your trust and not be disappointed, because I am the the everlasting and unfailing source of everything that you need. (1Tim 6:17)
  • Everyone who wants to live a godly life in me will be persecuted. They persecuted me, so they will persecute you. You must be prepared to endure suffering for my name's sake. I will always be with you, and empower you to withstand the attacks of the enemy, and turn what he meant for evil into good. But I need you to be faithful to me while you are going through it. (2Tim 3:12)
  • 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)
  • Authority(41)

  • Those in authority must deal with the members of my body as a father deals with his own children. Judgement must be tempered with love and mercy, with the goal of raising up this child of God to be like me. They are not the judge, they are the shepherd and overseer of their souls. Is there anyone to whom you may have been harsh? (1The 2:10)
  • I am reminding you again to be obedient to those in authority over you, even if you would do things differently if you were in charge. Always be ready to actively perform good works for them, as well as respond to things with which you disagree with a good attitude and your best abilities. Remember, you are my ambassador and represent me at all times. (Tit 3:1)
  • Don't trust what people say. It may seem to make sense on the surface, or be traditionally correct, but it doesn't take into account all that I know and have taught you. Compare everything you hear to what I have said, or you may be enslaved by lies. (Col 2:8)
  • Correction(38)

  • I will reveal things to you privately, however not everything is to be shared publicly with others. When you are in doubt about whether or not something is from me, then share it in private to a select few who are more mature in their relationship with me, and who walk according to their talk. Take their counsel about whether or not what you believe you have received fits into the entire counsel of God through my Word. If it is confirmed, then share it as I direct you. (Gal 2:2)
  • Always be careful that you do not fall into hypocrisy. It is easier than you think, because you are not really paying as close attention to your thoughts and actions as you think. You can cause others to fall away from my truth as well, and you will be held accountable for those who were swayed by your actions. So make sure that your walk and your godly talk match at all times. (Gal 2:13)
  • For those who belong to me, there is no place for criticism of others in your thoughts or your speech. Be committed to love one another and be considerate of each others' feelings. Rid yourself of thoughts and attitudes that rob you and others of peace, and be gentle toward people. But you can't do this in your own strength - you will have to surrender to my Spirit in order for this to happen. (Tit 3:2)
  • Death(18)

  • When I come in the clouds and return for you, I will bring with me those who have fallen asleep in death who believed in me. It will be the greatest reunion of all time. Death has no sting for believers, for they are, at most, temporarily separated from each other. Who do you look forward to seeing? (1The 4:14)
  • You strive so hard to be known and remembered in this world. However, once you are gone, you will likely be cherished only in the hearts of those you have loved and who have loved you. In the face of eternity, the only things that will count are what you did for me out of my agape love for others. Spend your life so loving me that you will naturally love others and draw them to me. Make an eternal difference by living in such a way that others want to give themselves to me. (Psa 103:15)
  • It can be so tempting to think about giving up, but you are here for a reason, my reason, and when it is time for you to come home, I will come and receive you to myself. So while you are here, live for me, act on my behalf, give generously of yourself to others. Labor for me out of love for me, for I am your exceedingly great reward. (Phi 1:22)
  • Depression(52)

  • When you are upset, the only way to find peace is to hand all of your concerns over to the Father to handle as He sees fit. Increase your faith by reminding yourself of all of the times He has been faithful to take care of you in the past, and think on every good thing He has given to you. Then, my peace will come over you, the peace that cannot be obtained through reasoning or rationalization, but only through faith in the Father's goodness and power. (Phi 4:6)
  • You cannot see everything that the Father and I are doing on your behalf in the spiritual realm. You see evil people supposedly getting away with or even rewarded for their actions, but these are only temporary. We will have our victory in the end, and there will be justice for those who have been trampled upon by the unrighteous. Trust us, and be patient as we work out our perfect will in this world. (Psa 103:6)
  • Money cannot fill that longing deep within your soul. Material possessions cannot bring you lasting happiness either. That is because the hole you are trying to fill can only contain me, and every attempt to obtain joy and satisfaction apart from me only ends in disappointment and emptiness. Only I will satisfy your deepest needs and desires. (Heb 13:5)
  • Discipline(58)

  • I want you to know every part of me, my power to overcome this world, my love for the Father and for everyone else. But that also includes knowing me in my death to my own desires, my subjecting myself in obedience to my Father in opposition to my natural will. Like me, you will learn obedience through what you suffer. That is also how you will experience the same power that resurrected me from the dead. (Phi 3:10)
  • 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)
  • Everyone starts out foolish and disobedient, being deceived and enslaved by their desires and feelings. In the natural, selfish thoughts cause envy and anger which devolve into hatred. I do not expect perfection from you, but I do expect progress in these areas as you learn to listen to, obey and remain in me more continually. (Tit 3:3)
  • Encouragement(82)

  • My promise to you is that I am with you always, speaking to your spirit. My grace, my Supernatural empowerment in your life to obey me, is always with you. There is nothing that you face alone, nor are powerless to overcome, because I will never leave you nor forsake you, and I have overcome this world. (2Tim 4:22)
  • I am near to you when you are broken-hearted. I feel your pain and weep with you. I know how low you feel, and will not leave you without comfort. The Spirit will wrap Himself around you and remind you how much you are loved by me. (Psa 34:18)
  • My words are not only for you. Although I try to communicate my personal intentions for you through them, my word was meant to be shared. If I have taught you anything, I don't want you to keep it to yourself. Share it with the rest of the family, because that's how I intend for them to learn and mature. What could you share? (1The 5:27)
  • Faith(241)

  • When you are in a tough situation, your faithfulness to me in words and actions will inspire other brothers and sisters to be bold in their faith. You stir up confidence in other believers, not just when you do what is right, but also when you hold yourself back from doing the wrong thing. That is why I need you to endure hardship like it is basic training, learning how to replace your allegiance to your own pleasure with obedience to my words. In which situation do you need help remaining faithful? (Phi 1:14)
  • I have placed many gifts within you, but they will lie dormant if you do not seek to use them. I need you to understand how important you are to my kingdom, otherwise I wouldn't have entrusted those gifts to you. When you are obedient to faithfully use them in obedience to me, you will see mountains move! (2Tim 1:6)
  • You can do this! Don't give up! What you attempt, by faith, I will bless. I will give you my strength when you acknowledge your weakness, and I will give you the same contentment that I had in this world. (Phi 4:13)
  • Fear(97)

  • The more you understand about me and my kingdom, the more hope you will have where others may experience despair. Death for non-believers leads to inconsolable grief. Death for believers is a momentary separation that will end in reunion in the future. Who can you share that hope with today? (1The 4:13)
  • Do not be surprised when you face persecution. I told you beforehand that if they persecuted me that they will persecute you also. But be encouraged, have no fear, for I am with you always. Tell me what I can do to help you live for me today. (1The 3:4)
  • Rejoice! This doesn't mean experiencing feelings of happiness. This means choosing to see the good in every situation, and acknowledging that I can turn every situation around for your good and my glory. What do you need to rejoice about today? (Phi 4:4)
  • For Men(4)

  • 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(12)

  • Wives should be submissive to their husbands. This does not mean being a doormat, or allowing ungodly things to go on in the home. It means trusting me with all of their concerns instead of trusting in their husband, and resting on the fact that I will handle them as I see fit. (Col 3:18)
  • You have stolen my heart, my bride, my church. I have waited throughout eternity for you, and soon we will be together. (Son 4:9)
  • 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)
  • Forgiveness(31)

  • 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)
  • Jonah could not stand the thought of me showing mercy to Israel's enemies, he wanted all of them to perish even though they were warned. I know the hurt your going through because of people in your past, I don't condone their actions, but I don't approve of your Judgements of them either. (Mat 5:44)
  • When you repented and asked for forgiveness, it was granted to you. That matter was settled, the debt owed was paid, the file on the judge's desk was marked 'NOT GUILTY', sealed and filed away forever. It was removed from your record, just as if it never happened. The judge will not take that file back out to review it ever again. That's how far your sin was separated from you, so leave it and move on. (Psa 103:12)
  • Giving(39)

  • 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)
  • When you are standing firm in me, you bring great joy not only to me, but to those who have poured themselves into you so you may become mature in your faith. You can be a blessing to those who have blessed you by sharing with them the good things I reveal to you and accomplish in your life. Who can you encourage today? (1The 3:8)
  • I have said that the poor will always be with you, but I never said that you should ignore them. It is easy to look away, forget them, or simply just focus on getting those extras that you want. But others have NEEDS, not wants, that they simply cannot meet without you sharing the resources you have received by my hand. Look around you and don't be so self-centered that you forget the least of these who need you to pay attention to them. (Gal 2:10)
  • Grief(22)

  • 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)
  • This world brings many things that bring fear. But even if the worst should happen, even if you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I am always with you, and I will always come through for you. I will always take care of you. (Psa 23:4)
  • I am near to you when you are broken-hearted. I feel your pain and weep with you. I know how low you feel, and will not leave you without comfort. The Spirit will wrap Himself around you and remind you how much you are loved by me. (Psa 34:18)
  • Healing(8)

  • 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)
  • Jonah could not stand the thought of me showing mercy to Israel's enemies, he wanted all of them to perish even though they were warned. I know the hurt your going through because of people in your past, I don't condone their actions, but I don't approve of your Judgements of them either. (Mat 5:44)
  • Heaven(27)

  • 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)
  • I have bought you back from the enemy, who held you prisoner due to your sin debt. I redeemed you with my blood so you could be with the Father and I forever, starting the moment you accepted our gift of salvation. Even when you don't live for us as you should, we pour out love and compassion on you without measure, reminding you that you belong to us, and were bought with a great price. Take time today to remember my sacrifice and revel in our love for you. (Psa 103:4)
  • Since I have rescued you from the darkness and death of this world so you can live with me forever in heaven, set your desires on things that please me. See me seated at the right hand of our father, loving, empowering and watching over you. Let everything you think, feel and do be a reflection of your love for me. (Col 3:1)
  • Holiness(122)

  • If you are to be a leader, then you must be a servant. And if you are a servant, you cannot be quarrelsome. You must be kind to everyone, able to teach them about me, and never resentful. Where does the enemy trip you up and lure you into arguments? (2Tim 2:24)
  • All are welcome in to the church, but I have set higher standards for those who oversee the members of my body. I want everyone to be able to serve in some capacity, as no one is without sin, but those who lead must keep themselves pure in their family relationships and in their interaction with the outside world. (1Tim 3:12)
  • You never know who is listening when you are speaking. The person in the booth behind you at the restaurant, the lady in the grocery line. Your conversation always reflects on me, so always be careful about what you say. (Col 4:6)
  • Hope(36)

  • 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)
  • I am looking forward to the day that I return for you. All who had slept in death will be caught up with me first, and then you will be caught up with me and meet me in the air. We will be together forever! Tell me how that makes you feel. (1The 4:17)
  • The more you understand about me and my kingdom, the more hope you will have where others may experience despair. Death for non-believers leads to inconsolable grief. Death for believers is a momentary separation that will end in reunion in the future. Who can you share that hope with today? (1The 4:13)
  • Humility(16)

  • 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)
  • I want you to know every part of me, my power to overcome this world, my love for the Father and for everyone else. But that also includes knowing me in my death to my own desires, my subjecting myself in obedience to my Father in opposition to my natural will. Like me, you will learn obedience through what you suffer. That is also how you will experience the same power that resurrected me from the dead. (Phi 3:10)
  • 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)
  • Joy(28)

  • 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)
  • I never want you to think that I died to ransom you out of obligation to our Father. I did it because I truly love you. The affection I feel for you makes me long to keep you close to myself and take care of you. Come into my presence now and let me love on you. (Phi 1:8)
  • Rejoice in me! Rejoice in me! Rejoice in me! I can never say it enough to you, because your joy in me is your strength. Your joy allows my gentleness and love to be seen in you by others. Think about my goodness, my faithfulness, my never-ending love for you, and REJOICE! (Phi 3:1)
  • Judgement(43)

  • As a parent, it is hard to find a balance between firmness and mercy. Correction and discipline are meant to help someone become a more responsible person. However, over-correction can bring discouragement and despair. Focus on the sin while still loving the sinner, just as our father does. (Col 3:21)
  • Although I am merciful, wrongdoers will always have to pay for their actions. There is an effect to everything that you do. If the ripple from your actions harms someone else, you will be held accountable for it. (Col 3:25)
  • Those in authority must deal with the members of my body as a father deals with his own children. Judgement must be tempered with love and mercy, with the goal of raising up this child of God to be like me. They are not the judge, they are the shepherd and overseer of their souls. Is there anyone to whom you may have been harsh? (1The 2:10)
  • Love(175)

  • Rejoice in me! Rejoice in me! Rejoice in me! I can never say it enough to you, because your joy in me is your strength. Your joy allows my gentleness and love to be seen in you by others. Think about my goodness, my faithfulness, my never-ending love for you, and REJOICE! (Phi 3:1)
  • 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)
  • Because you belong to me and belong to the light, and not to the darkness, do not be like others who walk absent-mindedly through this world. Be awake and sober, always looking for my appearance and ways to share my love with others. Act like the pure and radiant bride that you are to me. How can you prepare yourself for my coming? (1The 5:6)
  • Mercy(17)

  • Our Father is worthy of your time being spent thinking and talking about how awesome He is. Let yourself be truly amazed at how massive and powerful He is, so it increases your faith in Him. The world has no problem speaking against His existence, or denying His power. So do not be ashamed to publicly extol His goodness and loving-kindness, faithfulness and mercy through your words, and more importantly, your actions. (Psa 103:1)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • MY PRIVATE MESSAGES ONLY(2)

  • God loves you Sky (Deu 31:8)
  • Obedience(409)

  • 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)
  • The more time you spend in intimate communion with me, the more completely you will understand me and my desires for your life. Every day offers you many "good" opportunities, but I want you to have the "best" which I have planned for you. Listen for my voice and choose what I would choose for you, that you may stand pure and blameless before me on the day I return for you. What "good" thing is drawing you away from my "best" for you? (Phi 1:10)
  • Become an imitator, a mimic of me. Christian means "little Christ", so if you call yourself by that name, the world will expect you to act and talk like me, and I expect that as well. (1The 1:6)
  • Patience(73)

  • I see you loving others on behalf of me, and I urge you to love even more and more. It can be a difficult thing to love difficult people, but always remember how difficult you have been as well. Are you making excuses for why you can't love them instead of simply giving of yourself for them as I would? (1The 4:10)
  • God loves you Sky (Deu 31:8)
  • I can use all things, good and bad, to bring me glory. I can use the past of a person who did not believe, or who was cruel against believers, to accomplish my purpose. The transformation of a soul from angry and belligerent to loving and submissive is one of my greatest tools for bringing others to me. Do not give up hope for that one person for whom you keep praying. (Gal 1:23)
  • Peace(39)

  • What you see is what you get when you live by sight. But when you live by faith, you get so much more than what you see. You receive my peace, my power, my love, my presence - all of the things that are invisible but eternal. Hope comes when you focus your eyes away from temporary things and onto your future with me forever. (2Cor 4:18)
  • 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)
  • I am near to you when you are broken-hearted. I feel your pain and weep with you. I know how low you feel, and will not leave you without comfort. The Spirit will wrap Himself around you and remind you how much you are loved by me. (Psa 34:18)
  • Power(87)

  • I am over everything. My power and authority extend everywhere. My kingdom has come, and my will shall be done on earth as it is in heaven. You are my hands and my feet - stay connected to me as your head, so I may give you instructions regarding what to do and say, and the supernatural power to obey me. (Psa 103:19)
  • Godliness can only come when you have God living in you. When God lives in you, you have God's power as well. There is no such thing as godliness without power. So avoid anyone who tells you godliness is based on rules and regulations, because it only comes from my spirit indwelling you. (2Tim 3:5)
  • All of God's fullness, everything he is, all the power he has, dwells in me. When you look at me, you see my father. When you live in me and let me live through you, you experience everything that our Father is as well. (Col 1:18)
  • Praise and Worship(32)

  • I have bought you back from the enemy, who held you prisoner due to your sin debt. I redeemed you with my blood so you could be with the Father and I forever, starting the moment you accepted our gift of salvation. Even when you don't live for us as you should, we pour out love and compassion on you without measure, reminding you that you belong to us, and were bought with a great price. Take time today to remember my sacrifice and revel in our love for you. (Psa 103:4)
  • Rejoice in me! It is a choice you make every day. It is not a feeling, but an action that you take, a decision that you make, to find your joy in me and what I have done for you and for others. Speaking what you are grateful for is the place to start, because once you start rejoicing, you will become glad! (Phi 2:18)
  • 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(58)

  • I saved you with my own blood, buying you out of your slavery to sin, so that you could be adopted by our Father. That is why your heart yearns for Him, and your spirit cries out to Him, "Daddy." Don't you understand that your deepest need is really to be close to Him, to experience His protection as well as His everlasting love? Indulge yourself and give in to your need - spend time in intimate communion with Him now. (Gal 4:5)
  • Don't be surprised when evil people around you seem to go from bad to worse. Those who turn away from me get further and further away with every wrong thought and action. They do not want to know me, the Truth, and would rather believe the lies they have created. You must leave them to me, for you can do nothing but pray for them. (2Tim 3:13)
  • Though my message is love and my purpose is reconciliation with our Father, I know that not everyone will put their faith in me. Most refuse to believe there is a god because they don't want to have to answer to anyone else or live by another's rules. Unfortunately, they will face punishment for their rejection of us. Which un-believer can you pray for today? (1The 1:9)
  • Pride(11)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Everything you have accomplished on your own is basically worthless in and to the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those things that are inspired by and carried through by my Spirit will last - everything else will pass away. Until you consider as loss everything you do apart from me, you will still wander away, expending your energy pointlessly. Make sure you are listening to and obeying my words only. (Phi 3:7)
  • Purpose(51)

  • Once you were a slave to sin, but no longer. I redeemed you out of slavery, I bought you back so you could enjoy fellowship with your Father and me. Because you are now His child, you can ask what you want according to His will and be sure that He hears you. Even better, everything that is ours is now yours, waiting to be received and used as your inheritance. Do not try to go it alone in your own strength - ask the Father for the gifts of your inheritance to help you. (Gal 4:7)
  • I am your great reward. I am the home to which you will come when you finally lay aside this body and the trappings of this world. Press on, keep moving forward, despite the resistance you experience, until you can wrap your arms around me and claim for yourself the prize for which you have worked so hard - me. (Phi 3:14)
  • I knew you while you were yet in your mother's womb. I fashioned and formed you for the purpose for which you were born. I have set you apart from this world and from others that you might fulfill your calling and be dedicated to me. And I will empower you by my Holy Spirit to complete every good work I have assigned to you. Your surrender to me and my will brings me great pleasure. (Gal 1:15)
  • Rejection(29)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • It is tempting to look for acceptance from or agreement with others who are held in high esteem, but such a desire is not from me. If I give you a revelation about myself, that is all you need to know. Do not look for approval from others in regard to what you have learned. Simply live according to the truth, and if need be, I will reveal that truth to others around you as well. (Gal 2:6)
  • Repentance(14)

  • When you repented and asked for forgiveness, it was granted to you. That matter was settled, the debt owed was paid, the file on the judge's desk was marked 'NOT GUILTY', sealed and filed away forever. It was removed from your record, just as if it never happened. The judge will not take that file back out to review it ever again. That's how far your sin was separated from you, so leave it and move on. (Psa 103:12)
  • 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)
  • 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(213)

  • 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)
  • The best that the law can do is act as a driving instructor. It can't make you drive the speed limit, or stay on the right side of the road, or not crash into someone else. But living by faith is like having the Holy Spirit take the wheel and drive lawfully for you. You start desiring to do what is right, so you don't need an instructor telling you what not to do. Surrender to the Spirit's leading today and you will automatically fulfill the righteousness of the law. (Gal 3:24)
  • Those who serve me by watching over my flock have a higher responsibility to live a blameless life. Their lives should be an open book that others can read and learn from. No one is perfect, but my leaders must always strive for the highest standard. (Tit 1:6)
  • Salvation(126)

  • There is absolutely nothing wrong with the laws of God. I never came to wipe them out, but to show you how love fulfills the law. So the law is good, and you should strive to live according to it by my power within you. (1Tim 1:8)
  • Whenever you talk to people who don't know me, pay close attention to how my spirit leads you. Remember that I have been trying to reach this person, and connect them with our father. I will open the door for you to share about me if they are ready to hear it. (Col 4:5)
  • The gospel is not a man-made story. I am real, I am true, and am perfectly able to reveal myself to you and others in power. Whether or not they will believe, accept, and live for me is another thing, but do not doubt that I can prove my word to be true to those who are seeking me. Simply continue to live for and direct people to me. I will do the rest. (Gal 1:11)
  • Security(9)

  • When you finally accept me as your true provider, realizing that I know your needs and love you enough to meet them, you will be able to be content no matter what circumstances arise. You will not be shaken by sudden changes in situations, because you know that I am still Lord over all people and things. If you find your contentment in me alone, you will never be disappointed, because I will never leave you nor forsake you. (Phi 4:11)
  • 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)
  • 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(28)

  • 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)
  • I keep an account of how you utilize the goods and finances I have entrusted to your care. When you use it wisely and according to my will, I will increase my favor in your life. Your stewardship of all that I entrust to you shows that you acknowledge Me as the source of everything you have gained. In the measure that you give to others as I direct, you will receive from me. (Phi 4:17)
  • 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)
  • Sin(195)

  • I have made it clear that sexual immorality is not fitting for a child of God. If others remind you of this, and you reject it, you are not rejecting them, but rejecting me. I have placed my spirit within you so you can live a holy and blameless life. In what areas are you struggling with purity? (1The 4:8)
  • If someone refuses to hear my words when they are spoken by someone else, they are not rejecting the person who shares my word, but rejecting me. So be bold and courageous in your witness, and tell the world about me. Who can you reach out to today? (1The 4:8)
  • I saved you with my own blood, buying you out of your slavery to sin, so that you could be adopted by our Father. That is why your heart yearns for Him, and your spirit cries out to Him, "Daddy." Don't you understand that your deepest need is really to be close to Him, to experience His protection as well as His everlasting love? Indulge yourself and give in to your need - spend time in intimate communion with Him now. (Gal 4:5)
  • Strength(49)

  • I am always standing by your side, available to give you strength whenever you admit your weakness. I want to empower you so you may proclaim my message through your words and your actions. So go forth in my power and my strength, to accomplish my purposes for my kingdom. (2Tim 4:17)
  • Even when it seems like there is more going on than you can handle, I will always either give you the strength to deal with it, or make a way out of it. Just hold on, and trust me to bring you through it. (1Cor 10:13)
  • It only takes a small amount of evil to start tainting everything good in your life. One white lie, twisting or omitting the truth, is a tactic of the enemy. Once you give in to him, it is hard to disentangle yourself. Reject every kind of evil - run from it. What in your life should you be turning away from? (1The 5:22)
  • Submission(32)

  • 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)
  • Praise our Father in Heaven, as do all the heavenly host. The elders, the angels, and all creation give Him the honor due Him as the Creator. However, the greatest act of praise is submission to His will, surrender of yourself by laying yourself upon the altar of God as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God. Serve Him out of true love, and the praise of your mouth will match the praise of your life lived for Him. (Psa 103:21)
  • Too often you rely on things and people around you to give you strength. But I am all that you need. You can do everything I ask you to do, and face all of the people that you find challenging, and persevere through hard circumstances solely because my spirit of power lives within you. All you need to do is surrender and let him do it through you. (Phi 4:13)
  • Suffering(63)

  • Always remember that God is good. Even though the enemy wants you to believe that God doesn't care, or you've done things that warrant Him allowing bad things to happen to you, our Father wants good things for you. He is the good, good Father that wants good things for His child. (Jer 29:11)
  • No matter what you are going through, I will rescue you from every situation. It may not be in your timing nor in the way you expected, but I will find a way for you, and give you the strength to bear it while you remain under the weight of it. Trust Me. (2Tim 3:11)
  • You are just passing through this world. I know it is an extended stay, but you aren't from here and you don't belong here. You are visiting, and will return to your home of origin, heaven, where you have your citizenship. So don't expect much from this temporary location - your rewards are at home, along with your loved ones and the One who made you. Live for me, your Savior, and I will return to take you home with me. (Phi 3:20)
  • Temptation(86)

  • As a parent, it is hard to find a balance between firmness and mercy. Correction and discipline are meant to help someone become a more responsible person. However, over-correction can bring discouragement and despair. Focus on the sin while still loving the sinner, just as our father does. (Col 3:21)
  • Although I am merciful, wrongdoers will always have to pay for their actions. There is an effect to everything that you do. If the ripple from your actions harms someone else, you will be held accountable for it. (Col 3:25)
  • The more time you spend in intimate communion with me, the more completely you will understand me and my desires for your life. Every day offers you many "good" opportunities, but I want you to have the "best" which I have planned for you. Listen for my voice and choose what I would choose for you, that you may stand pure and blameless before me on the day I return for you. What "good" thing is drawing you away from my "best" for you? (Phi 1:10)
  • Thanksgiving(29)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Pray constantly for one another, not only when you happen to think about them, but at scheduled times of dedicated prayer. Thank our father for your brothers and sisters, especially those who work alongside of you. My kingdom cannot accomplish what I purpose if you do not look out for one another. (1The 1:2)
  • Unity(4)

  • 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(51)

  • Some people care more about being thought of as knowledgeable, even if it means never knowing the truth. The truth is that I lived on the earth, I died to pay for your sins, and rose again to show my triumph over the enemy. I am coming back for you soon, and those are the only truths that matter. (2Tim 2:18)
  • The enemy is always on the attack, trying to undo everything the father and I try to accomplish. But I am coming, and will overthrow him and destroy all of his works. You can rejoice in the fact that his time is coming, and his end is near. (2The 2:8)
  • I love how much we are starting to look alike. You are becoming the express image of me in your world just like I was the express image of our Father in my world. (1Joh 4:17)
  • Wisdom(73)

  • Some people care more about being thought of as knowledgeable, even if it means never knowing the truth. The truth is that I lived on the earth, I died to pay for your sins, and rose again to show my triumph over the enemy. I am coming back for you soon, and those are the only truths that matter. (2Tim 2:18)
  • The enemy wants you to be afraid, but I am always with you by my Spirit. You never have to face or handle anything alone, because the Comforter provides the power and wisdom that you require in any situation. I am your ever present source of help. (Heb 13:6)
  • I have created some people to be prophets, and those entrusted with that gift should always be listening for my voice. And those who receive a word from a prophet need to test the message to see if it comes to pass. Hold on to whatever good comes of it, and let the rest go. If I speak to you, will you be willing to speak it to others? (1The 5:21)
  • Witnessing(87)

  • Without the Holy Spirit's fruit of self-control, you cannot expect to be a good example of and witness to how I can transform a life. Always be alert to the people around you, and how your actions will affect them, as well as how it will reflect on me. Say what you mean and follow through on your promises, displaying integrity in everything you do. (Tit 2:7)
  • I gave my life as a ransom for you, not only to buy you back from slavery to sin, but also to save you from wickedness and purify you. You belong to me now, so you must represent me well wherever you go. I need you to be eager to do what is good, open to sharing my love, and prepared to explain my words to others. (Tit 2:14)
  • No matter how much you have sinned, I always have more than enough mercy to match it. My patience is boundless, and by saving you, I have made you an example for anyone else who would come out of sin, believe in me, and receive eternal life. Testify today about what I have done in your life. (1Tim 1:16)
  • Worry(39)

  • 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 know how easy it is to start worrying about tomorrow, and what will and will not happen. But our Father knows everything that you need, and is completely able to provide it for you out of His riches in glory when you need them. People who haven't experienced God's faithfulness make themselves sick with worry, but you have experienced His goodness, so you can rest in His provision instead of trying to figure out how to protect yourself from what is out of your control. (Mat 6:32)
  • 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)
  •
