  • 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)
  • Realize I'm not God; I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable. (Step 1) (Mat 5:3)
  • Step 8. We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all. - Do to others as you would have them do to you. (Luk 6:31)
  • 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)
  • I am the purpose of your life - to remain in me, listening to me and obeying me. I am the goal of your life - to become like me in thought, word and action. I am the reward of your life - to be in my presence forever. (Phi 1:21)
  • 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)
  • Anger(29)

  • When you are tossed back and forth by your emotions, letting them determine what you will do, you cannot expect to learn and act on the truth. Your feelings change from moment to moment, so you can only trust my word. Listen to my spirit, trust him and obey, despite whatever your emotions say. (2Tim 3:7)
  • The enemy is continually trying to tear apart the body. One way is by bringing up accusations against the leaders in your church. The accusation may come through another brother or sister, or maybe it arises from your own mind, but do not meditate on it, and do not repeat it. If there is any issue, go directly to the person and speak to them about it. Otherwise, treat it like the poison that it is, and avoid contact with it. (1Tim 5:19)
  • 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)
  • Anxiety(94)

  • 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)
  • There is no reason to fear, because I have overcome your greatest worries. I have even destroyed the power of death and have brought to you my eternal life. When you need wisdom, I will shine upon you the light of my words of truth. This is my promise to you today and every day. (2Tim 1:10)
  • 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)
  • Authority(38)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Correction(35)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • I know sometimes you just want to lose it, but that is why I sent the Holy Spirit to live within you. As long as you surrender to him, the fruit of self-control will flourish, helping you to remain pure and kind, to stay busy with the things of God, and be respectful of those in authority over you. Do not give anyone the opportunity to speak evil of me because of misconduct on your part. In what area of your life do you need more self-control? (Tit 2:5)
  • Death(16)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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(50)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Discipline(54)

  • 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)
  • Remember to call upon Me when you are facing temptation and troubling fleshly cravings. Call on me, acknowledge your weakness, and I WILL rescue you with my strength. Honor Me and bring Me glory by listening to my still small voice and obeying it. (Psa 50:15)
  • 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)
  • Encouragement(77)

  • 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)
  • No matter what your earthly heritage may be, by placing your faith in me, you have become a descendant of Abraham, the Father of all faith. He trusted and obeyed me, leaving all that was familiar to him in order to travel to an unknown location and face unimagined challenges, all because he believed that I was trustworthy and would keep my promises to him. So trust me as I send you to unfamiliar places and ask you to do unexpected things. I will not disappoint you in the end. (Gal 3:29)
  • Pray for your brothers and sisters. In the midst of their struggles, they sometimes feel like they are alone in carrying their burdens. Lift their load and help them carry what is weighing them down. You can do that by covering them with prayer, and when you can, by helping them practically. Who really needs your prayers now? (1The 5:25)
  • Faith(238)

  • There was a time when you followed your flesh wherever it led. But now, I need you to flee from those desires. Instead, run after righteousness, faith, love and peace, as everyone does who has a pure heart. What desires are you struggling with today? (2Tim 2:22)
  • Don't get all caught up in the rules and regulations like the rest of the world. This is the most important thing: Are you trusting in and obeying me? Are you loving others as I would love them? (1Joh 3:23)
  • Even though I see your heart, your mind, and your works, I am even more encouraged when your brothers and sisters bring me good news about your faith and love. Faith and love that is not expressed externally is not true faith and love. Everyone around you should know that you are a Christian by your attitude and your actions. Whose faith has encouraged you? (1The 3:6)
  • Fear(94)

  • 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 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • I love you more than you will ever know on earth. But one day, you will come home to me, and you will experience the fullness of my love for you throughout eternity. (Joh 14:2)
  • Forgiveness(25)

  • 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)
  • You have been redeemed, and forgiven of all of your sins, through the blood I shed on the cross. That was a one time payment covering all of your past, present, and future sins. You only need to confess your sins to me and return to me with your whole heart, to be cleansed. (Col 1:14)
  • Always remember how much you have been forgiven, and that others deserve the same kind of forgiveness. You were no better than anyone else, but I forgave you. Accept others as I accepted you, knowing that they are as imperfect as you are in this world. (Col 3:13)
  • Giving(36)

  • Rejoice at all times, in every situation, because I am Lord over everything, and I will have the final say. Your joy comes from deep within you, from my Spirit who lives in you, and doesn't depend on outside circumstances. So rejoice that I am with you always, even throughout eternity. What can you rejoice over now? (1The 5:16)
  • 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)
  • When you pray for others, our father is so pleased with you. It is the same way when you offer up thanksgiving to God. It is like a sweet smelling savor, a fragrant perfume that rises before him and makes him glad. For what can you offer thanksgiving to Him right now? (1Tim 2:3)
  • Grief(20)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Many will abandon you as you walk along my narrow road. Do not be surprised, because some people I place in your life only for a season, only for certain lessons. Do not place your hope in anyone other than me, for I will always come to you quickly and provide everything that you need. (2Tim 4:10)
  • Healing(5)

  • All the blessings of your life are from the Father. Every healing you receive in your body now, the healing you are receiving in your soul, and the final healing you will receive when you are with us in heaven, are all from our Father's hand. Every sin that you commit that is covered by my blood, forgiven and purposely never again remembered, is because of our Father's love for you. Thank Him today for His never ending love and provision in your life. (Psa 103:3)
  • 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)
  • I can turn any situation into one that glorifies our Father and further transforms you into my image. I can even take sickness and use it for good, displaying my mighty power within you while you are humanly weak. I can open doors for witnessing that were previously shut, and provide opportunities for miracles. I am still with you, remaining Lord over all, and I will not waste one opportunity to bring you closer to me, and simultaneously reconcile the world to our Father. (Gal 4:13)
  • Heaven(25)

  • When you live for me, my Holy Spirit fills you to overflowing, and you are saturated in my presence. When your life ends, you will be in my presence throughout all eternity. Since you belong to me, whether you live or die, we will be together forever - I will never leave you nor forsake you. (Phi 1:21)
  • Through your continual obedience to Our Father, you are becoming more and more like me in character, attitude, and actions. But there is coming a day when you will see me, and you will be like me, because I will transform your body into a likeness of my glorious body. I can do that because my power can bring everything under subjection to me. Rejoice, because that day is coming. (Phi 3:21)
  • I am using everything that you are going through to transform you into my likeness. In the perspective of eternity, what you are struggling with will pass in a twinkling of an eye. However, the results of working through your challenges head on (instead of trying to go around them) will last forever. Keep your eyes on the joy set before you - being with me. (2Cor 4:17)
  • Holiness(120)

  • As a Christian, people are watching you, and seeing how your life reflects or does not reflect me. One way to reflect me is to carry your own load to the best of your ability, and not be a burden to anyone else. It's one thing if you cannot take care of yourself and need help, but another if you are able to do so but do not do so out of laziness. (2The 3:8)
  • Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, minding your own business and doing your own work. Be careful not to slip into gossip, talking about others when they are not around. There is more than enough going on in your life to keep your mind busy. Have you been talking about someone else's life or conduct? (1The 4:11)
  • The message of my saving power and loving kindness is "preached" every time you walk in faith in me. You show the world that I am real, testify of my goodness and worthiness to be followed and served. Remember that big and little eyes are watching you at all times. (1The 1:8)
  • Hope(33)

  • 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)
  • It is so tempting to gain things. But your only purpose is to gain me. Gain intimacy with me, make knowing me through everyday experiences the most important goal of your life. Everything else is worthless garbage in comparison. In this way, every day can hold great victories, because knowing me more does not depend on anyone else's participation, and turns every event, good or bad, into another opportunity to gain more of me. (Phi 3:8)
  • 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)
  • Humility(11)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • The entire purpose of your life is to reveal me to others. When they hear you speak, when they see you sacrificially give to others, when they witness my power working through you in impossible situations, and when you surrender joyfully to my will even when it is not what you want, they will see me in you. I am glorified in you when you surrender to my spirit and act like me. (Gal 1:16)
  • Joy(26)

  • You are always in my heart, in my thoughts. I have emotions and feelings just like you, and you cannot fathom the depth of love I have for you, or the joy I feel when you come spend intimate time with me. I am always with you, filling you with my supernatural power which enables you to respond to me in obedience and love. Spend some time with me now. (Phi 1:7)
  • 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)
  • 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(39)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Love(170)

  • Anyone who professes to worship God should have a life that is adorned with good deeds. Having a personal faith means nothing if it is not expressed to the outside world. Your faith should be expressed in self-sacrificial acts of kindness toward others. What good deed can you do today? (1Tim 2:10)
  • Getting what you want for yourself, and making yourself feel like you are better than others, cannot be the guiding force for your life. I know it goes against your flesh, but your goal must be giving of yourself for the benefit of others (love) because that is what I have commanded. But you can't love others if you don't value them above yourself, so adjust your mindset to give more value to others' needs and wants than your own, and then practically love them. (Phi 2:3)
  • 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)
  • Mercy(13)

  • I have always known the worst about you, and yet I still saved you. It has never been about what you have done, but who you give your allegiance to. It is because of my mercy and my love for you that I washed you clean in spiritual rebirth, and made you a new creation through my Holy Spirit. Relax and enjoy a moment in my presence. (Tit 3:5)
  • 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)
  • Your relationships with others need to mirror the way I have relationships with people. I never thought of others as less than me, but treated them with respect. I let them know they were valuable to me, and served them out of genuine care for their welfare. I didn't wait for them to become worthy of my friendship; instead my love and friendship helped them heal and walk worthy of me. I need you to have my mindset when dealing with all people. (Phi 2:5)
  • MY PRIVATE MESSAGES ONLY(0)

    Obedience(404)

  • I want you to continue acting on what you have learned about me. The more you obey what I have taught you and what the spirit keeps reminding you, the more it will become a natural part of your behavior. When you act on my words and see the results, you will become more and more convinced that what I say is the truth. (2Tim 3:14)
  • There is great honor in taking care of your family, managing your home, tending to the people closest to you. It can also keep you away from idle talk and idle people who will lead you astray. Do everything as if there was a video recorder following you around, and give no one reason to speak evil of you. (1Tim 5:14)
  • There are only two paths in life, my Beloved: the Spirit and the Flesh. Your choices are ALL one or the other. The Spirit is based on what I've told you. The Flesh is based on what the world did to you before we knew each other well. Choose my Spirit. (Gal 5:17)
  • Patience(67)

  • If you are not sure about something, don't worry about that. We will make that clear to you in due time. If it is a subject of debate between you and someone else, do not feel you have to prove you are right or have all the answers. I will reveal what needs to be known at the right time to the right people. Trust me in this. (Phi 3:15)
  • 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)
  • I know you get really busy during the day, but I want you to know that I can wait until you have time to talk. I love you, and I will wait patiently for you. Talk to me now. (1Cor 13:4)
  • Peace(36)

  • Today, our father and I want to fill you with all of our power so you may accomplish what we ask of you today. We also want you to be filled with my peace that passes all understanding, which comes from unwavering trust that I will take care of everything that is important to you. We will provide for you everything you need for life and godliness today. (Tit 1:4)
  • It is not enough to know about me. You must intimately know me and in faith imitate my love, patience, and faithfulness to the father. Whatever you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, do these things, and my peace will remain in you. (Phi 4:9)
  • 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)
  • Power(85)

  • The entire purpose of filling you with my Holy Spirit is to empower you to respond to me in obedience. You were born for a purpose, given gifts, talents and characteristics that are perfect for the plan God has devised specifically for your life. So always remember that it is OUR power working mightily within you to fulfill the Father's purpose for your life - stop fighting in your own strength, and allow the Holy Spirit to accomplish God's will in and around you. (Phi 2:13)
  • Be found in me. When you try to find your own way through life, living by your own rules, you get lost. Listening to and obeying me is your only way to be found righteous in me. But when you are found in me, you can be assured that you are in the right place at the right time, filled with the right power to accomplish my will and please me. (Phi 3:9)
  • The Father never meant for you to live by a list of laws that you don't have the power to obey. His choice was to personally instruct and empower you to live for him. But man would rather try to earn salvation by following laws in their own strength. So God left those laws in place to show men how unrighteous they would remain without him, until I came to remind the world that righteousness has always only come through faith. Trust in my Spirit to empower you to fulfill the righteousness of the law and you will never be condemned for failure to obey the letter of every law. (Gal 3:19)
  • Praise and Worship(30)

  • 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)
  • Anyone who professes to worship God should have a life that is adorned with good deeds. Having a personal faith means nothing if it is not expressed to the outside world. Your faith should be expressed in self-sacrificial acts of kindness toward others. What good deed can you do today? (1Tim 2:10)
  • The message of my saving power and loving kindness is "preached" every time you walk in faith in me. You show the world that I am real, testify of my goodness and worthiness to be followed and served. Remember that big and little eyes are watching you at all times. (1The 1:8)
  • Prayer(53)

  • 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)
  • When you are distressed because of suffering and persecution for my sake, remember your brothers and sisters who are in dire situations for the gospel. Be encouraged by how strongly they stand for me. Take their faith as an example, and become an imitator of them. Who can you pray for right now? (1The 3:7)
  • 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)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • I want you to be sure of your call, and convinced of being chosen by our father. The assurance of belonging to us and being completely loved by us should show in your walk and your talk. (1The 1:4)
  • I need you to remain open to do whatever I ask of you. Sometimes I will send you to assist another in their ministry, and at other times will send others to help you with yours. I do not call any man to work alone, but to always be a part of my body, connected to other members. (2Tim 4:11)
  • 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)
  • Rejection(27)

  • 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)
  • When people ridicule or scorn you because of your beliefs, remember all that I endured when others railed against me. If you don't keep me, the Perfecter of your faith, in front of your mind, you will faint and become weary. Rejoice because you are sharing in my sufferings. (Heb 12:3)
  • 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)
  • Repentance(10)

  • 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)
  • 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 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)
  • Righteousness(210)

  • Remember that you are the only Jesus many people will see, and your actions will show others that you belong to and know me. (1Joh 2:4)
  • Your greatest enemy is your desire for pleasure. It can overwhelm you, distract you, and set itself up as your idol. Before you know it, your love of pleasure is greater than your love of me. I designed your body and emotions to enjoy pleasure, but the enemy will use it to wreck your life. Always be aware of the power of pleasure over your life. (2Tim 3:4)
  • You have been redeemed, and forgiven of all of your sins, through the blood I shed on the cross. That was a one time payment covering all of your past, present, and future sins. You only need to confess your sins to me and return to me with your whole heart, to be cleansed. (Col 1:14)
  • Salvation(124)

  • Never use flattery when trying to win someone to me. Always let the gospel stand on its own merits, knowing that the power of the Holy Spirit will convict and draw people. My words are a powerful, two edged sword that will divide between their thoughts and their intentions. It will reveal to them not only who they really are, but who I am as well. Who can you share with today? (1The 2:5)
  • Always be on guard against those who would try to block the message about me. You cannot do anything in the natural, so you must wage this war on your knees. Pray that my word would be preached throughout the nations, and that many would be saved through it's hearing. (2Tim 4:15)
  • Love is what caused my father to offer his only son up so that you might have everlasting life. Love is what caused me to willingly lay down my life for your salvation. All I ask in return is that you love me and love others as I have loved you so that others may come to share in our love. (Joh 3:16)
  • Security(6)

  • 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)
  • Our father is a God of kept promises. He is faithful to fulfill his word to those who believe him. His inheritance for his children is every spiritual blessing he has to give, as well as his provision and his protection. You can't earn an inheritance - it rightfully belongs to the offspring. In the same way, you can't earn all he wants to give to you by obeying the law, it is yours simply because you belong to him. Rest in his promises today. (Gal 3:18)
  • Servanthood(26)

  • 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)
  • When I walked on the earth, I knew I was God, but never used that as leverage to manipulate other people to do what I wanted. I didn't come to the earth to have others serve my needs and wants, but to serve them. I need you to have this same servant mindset, and be ready to serve others' needs as they present themselves and as I direct you. (Phi 2:6)
  • 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)
  • Sin(192)

  • There are people whose determination to do what they please and avoid correction have warped them. Their every thought and action by now is sinful. I do not condemn them, but their own actions repeatedly do. Witness to them as I give you the opportunity, but otherwise stay away and simply pray for them. (Tit 3:11)
  • When you see a brother or sister committing a sin, pray for them, don't talk about them. Pray that they repent and turn back to our Father, and are restored to righteousness and fellowship with us. (1Joh 5:16)
  • Don't let your words or your actions deny that you know me and the Father. Let everyone know that you belong to me. (1Joh 2:23)
  • Strength(46)

  • In me, you can be strong and have courage when facing overwhelming circumstances. I will empower you to live and speak for me at all times. You have no reason to be ashamed as long as I am exalted as Lord of your life. (Phi 1:20)
  • I am always faithful - to strengthen you when you are weak, and to protect you from the attacks of the enemy. You are never alone as you walk through your day, because I am faithful to remain with you. You can always rely on me to provide you with everything you need, even the things you don't know you need. (2The 3:3)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Suffering(60)

  • It is so tempting to gain things. But your only purpose is to gain me. Gain intimacy with me, make knowing me through everyday experiences the most important goal of your life. Everything else is worthless garbage in comparison. In this way, every day can hold great victories, because knowing me more does not depend on anyone else's participation, and turns every event, good or bad, into another opportunity to gain more of me. (Phi 3:8)
  • My People must bear the fruit of self-control. It is the key to overcoming the issues of the flesh. Being able to control your reactions to others, and not giving in to excess of food, drinks, or any other substance, and being free from the love of money is the sign that you are under the control of my Holy Spirit. In what area are you struggling with self-control? (1Tim 3:2)
  • Give thanks in all circumstances, if for no reason other than it is what our father asks of you. Gratitude is your greatest offensive weapon, keeping the enemy from distracting you with what you don't have. When you give thanks, you tell the father and I that you trust us no matter what. What are you grateful for today? (1The 5:18)
  • Temptation(83)

  • Turning from faith in me is like a snowball. It starts out with a small act of disobedience, like a white lie, but then it gets easier with each subsequent rebellious act. Evil and perversity always start with the refusal to trust in me. Where do you feel yourself slipping in the wrong direction? (2The 3:2)
  • The enemy may try to block your way as you work for my kingdom and my purposes. But he does not have the last say, for our father counteracts everything the prince of this world does, so that His will and Kingdom reign supreme. What do you want the father to move for you today? (1The 2:18)
  • 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)
  • Thanksgiving(27)

  • Give thanks in all circumstances, if for no reason other than it is what our father asks of you. Gratitude is your greatest offensive weapon, keeping the enemy from distracting you with what you don't have. When you give thanks, you tell the father and I that you trust us no matter what. What are you grateful for today? (1The 5:18)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • You can be confident in these things - my never failing love for you and my boundless power to complete the work I have begun in you. I didn't save you to leave you as you were, but to rescue you from sin and death. I brought you out of darkness and into my glorious light, and placed my Spirit in you to continue your transformation so that when we see each other face to face, you will be like me. (Phi 1:6)
  • When I come back for you, you will no longer be hampered by your flaws and failures, because you will be transformed into my likeness. You will share in my glory, my characteristics and traits. Eagerly look forward to that day, but live through me now. (Col 3:4)
  • Diligently guard your heart and mind to protect the Word I have spoken to you, and which has changed your life. The enemy wants to fill you with worldly thoughts and desires to drag you backward into your old life, but my Holy Spirit within you will help you remain in me. What thoughts threaten to make you backslide? (2Tim 1:14)
  • Wisdom(71)

  • Don't be fooled by what people around you say, and fine sounding arguments. What I have to share is foolishness to those who think they know everything. But I am the source of all truth, because I am the way, the truth, and the life. (Col 2:4)
  • You have learned many things, but knowing is not enough. I expect you to act on what you have learned, walking it out in faith. You have a high calling on your life to live in this world as I did, and I have been teaching you what you need to know. Now, express through your actions the truths that have been imparted to and implanted in you. (Phi 3:16)
  • 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(85)

  • I have appointed you as my personal messenger to tell others about me. Your changed life is a miraculous sign to others proving that what you say is true. Teach them what you know and don't worry about what you don't yet know. Just bring them one step closer to me - I will do the rest. (2Tim 1:11)
  • The way that leads to sin is very slippery. It starts with hanging around the wrong people, and then spending more time with them, until finally you become like them. Be very careful about the company you keep, and while it is good to witness to them, it is not good to become best friends with them. (Psa 1:1)
  • The message of my saving power and loving kindness is "preached" every time you walk in faith in me. You show the world that I am real, testify of my goodness and worthiness to be followed and served. Remember that big and little eyes are watching you at all times. (1The 1:8)
  • Worry(37)

  • When you feel unprotected and vulnerable, remember how I long to gather you to myself and protect you from what you fear. You will always find a safe place when you run to me, for I will always come when you call. I am your fortress, your deliverer, and your shield from the enemy. Come to me and let me give you rest. (Psa 91:4)
  • It is the Father who will complete the work in you, heal you, fix you, transform you. It adds to your anxiety when you mistakenly start thinking that it is up to you to figure out a way to fix yourself. But it is our Father's responsibility to do these things, because only He has the power to do it. (Phi 1:6)
  • Sometimes, you find your mind wandering toward thoughts of "what if" and "if only". If you will just turn your thoughts back to our Father's proven faithfulness, and rest in His care for you and His ability to handle every situation, you will find such peace. If you will quietly commit to complete trust in Him, you will find the strength you need to continue going. (Isa 30:15)
  •
