  • Step 4. We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. - Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord. (Lam 3:40)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Anger(30)

  • Be very afraid of sliding into hatred. No one who hates truly has my life inside of them. Remain in my love. (1Joh 3:15)
  • I know people can get on your nerves, but the one thing that shows people that you belong to me is when you love others, especially your brothers and sisters in me. Ask My spirit inside of you to love them through you. (1Joh 3:10)
  • 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)
  • Anxiety(95)

  • I told my disciples that I had to go away in order for the Holy Spirit to come and live inside of them. My spirit is my deposit that I have made in you that guarantees my promise of eternal life for you. This was our father's plan from before the beginning of time, and you can trust that I will complete what I have started and bring you to where I am now. (Tit 1:2)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Authority(39)

  • I love my church, my bride. She is my body, held together by my spirit and my power, as long as she stays connected to and acknowledges me as her head. When the church obeys me and not man, my body grows in members and in power. (Col 2:19)
  • 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)
  • It doesn't matter what is in the heart of man - our Father can use what anyone does to further His plan and bring people into our Kingdom. Even those who stir up trouble can be His tool to chisel away at the rough spots in the lives of believers. We will use every opportunity to add to the kingdom of God and perfect those who are saved, and we will use what the enemy meant for evil and use it for good! Who is it that you have doubted that God could use for His glory? (Phi 1:15)
  • Correction(35)

  • When a child doesn't like the answer they receive from their parent, they have a habit of asking the same question over and over again. Sometimes you are like that, too; I say "no" or "not yet", but you continue to ask in hopes I will change my mind. I know you don't like it when I don't immediately answer your prayers in the affirmative, and that you sometimes get angry with me for it. But you need to trust that I know what is best. Outside of my timing, your requests will not satisfy you, nor will they fulfill the will of God. (Gal 4:16)
  • I 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)
  • Be very careful not to seek out teachers that only tell you what you want to hear. Those who speak on my behalf will sometimes speak correction and rebuke. Do not shy away from them, or think they are not from me, but listen to them and see what truth you need to apply to your life. (2Tim 4:3)
  • Death(16)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • I know what I am doing. You've got to trust me. I know the future, and it is good. Talk to me about what is concerning and distracting you. (Jer 29:11)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Discipline(55)

  • 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)
  • When you remain faithful to me, even in the worst of circumstances, you open up opportunities for even the most hard-hearted people around you to be broken and turn to me. Honor me with your attitude and your words, even when things go wrong, and I will move in the life of those around you. You may never see the results, but reaping the harvest is my responsibility - yours is to sow seeds through your obedience. (Phi 1:13)
  • 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)
  • Encouragement(79)

  • I long to encourage your heart and strengthen you in every good deed you do and every virtuous word you say. It is my power that runs through you and gives you the ability to respond to me in obedience. How can you use my power to glorify me today? (2The 2:17)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Faith(238)

  • Listen to my spirit. He will teach you everything you need to know. Remain in him always, surrendering to his leading. (1Joh 2:27)
  • You can have confidence when you come and ask me for something, especially when you have been doing what you know pleases me. Don't hesitate to ask for anything, big or small. Ask me now. (1Joh 3:22)
  • 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)
  • Fear(95)

  • When a child doesn't like the answer they receive from their parent, they have a habit of asking the same question over and over again. Sometimes you are like that, too; I say "no" or "not yet", but you continue to ask in hopes I will change my mind. I know you don't like it when I don't immediately answer your prayers in the affirmative, and that you sometimes get angry with me for it. But you need to trust that I know what is best. Outside of my timing, your requests will not satisfy you, nor will they fulfill the will of God. (Gal 4:16)
  • Our father is completely able to complete the work he has begun in you. He wouldn't have called you according to his purpose if he wasn't faithful to equip you for that purpose. Surrender to his will and his training methods, and he will accomplish great and mighty things for the kingdom through you. What can you surrender to him right now? (1The 5:24)
  • 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)
  • For Men(2)

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

  • I 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)
  • 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)
  • Forgiveness(26)

  • It doesn't matter how a person starts, it is how they finish. Those who spoke against me or made fun of Christians, and even those who were violent against others, to them I have shown mercy because they acted in ignorance and unbelief. To those who will receive me, I will pour out my divine power without measure so they can live for me. (1Tim 1:13)
  • Because you are now a child of God, we only see you as part of our family. You are not seen in regard to religious creed, sex, race or any other earthly designation. We look at you and recognize the family resemblance - righteous and forgiven, filled with the Holy Spirit. You are one with us, and we are one with you; my shed blood binds us together forever. You can rest secure in your place in our family. (Gal 3:28)
  • 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)
  • Giving(36)

  • 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)
  • When you give to others as I direct, on my behalf, it is a sweet-smelling sacrifice to me. Your offering is pleasing to our father, who remembers your kindness and generosity to his other children. When you are in need, the memory of your faithful giving comes before him, and he will provide for your needs as well. How can you give to someone else in their need today? (Phi 4:18)
  • 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)
  • Grief(20)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Remember that your life is not your own; you belong to me. It is important that you remain as a part of my body on earth, because my plans for you also affect my plans for others' lives. Trust me, because I know the plans I have for you, and they are to prosper you and those whom you touch on my behalf. (Phi 1:24)
  • 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)
  • Your patience with the suffering of others publicly sets you apart. People enduring illness often feel so vulnerable and isolated, fearful, exhausted and overwhelmed. They are rarely at their best, and it would be very easy to get annoyed with them. But I call you to go with them not only one mile, but two. Forgive their ill humor or bad mood that pushes everyone else away, and move closer - close enough to touch them with my selfless, endless love. (Gal 4:14)
  • This world is temporary and fleeting. People come and go, and life still goes on. This may seem like a cruelty, but you are just a visitor, an alien in this world. You are now a spiritual person with a physical body, my emissary working on my behalf in this natural world until you return to live forever with me. Make the most of your time here, but do not think this is all there is. Your heavenly mansion, your complete healing, your reunion with loved ones still awaits you. (Psa 103:16)
  • Heaven(25)

  • Everything in heaven and on earth, seen and unseen, was created by my father and I. All of the rulers and people with power and authority have been placed there by my father, to accomplish His will. You can trust that he knows what he is doing in your life. (Col 1:16)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Holiness(120)

  • In order to be a teacher of my word, you must know more than my actual sayings and teachings. You need to understand how a life is transformed by them because you have experienced such a transformation yourself. Beware of people who teach my word, but their life shows that they have not been personally transformed by the truth. (1Tim 1:7)
  • 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)
  • It is so hard to keep yourself pure when you hang around with people who are not pure. Do not be deceived, because bad company always corrupts good character. You may witness to and love those who are not believers, but if you spend the majority of your time with them, you will find yourself acting like them. Keep yourself pure. (1Tim 5:22)
  • Hope(34)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • No man knows when I will come to you. It is for the father to choose the day and time. But I will come, and for those who do not know me, destruction will come suddenly. However, for those who belong to me, they will experience everlasting life, joy and peace. Who do you wish you could share my life with? (1The 5:1)
  • Humility(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)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • I have seen your tears, and I long to hold you in my arms so that I may be filled with joy. It is only a short time and we will be together forever. Keep your eyes on me, your savior, your Lord, the author and perfecter of your faith, for I am returning for you soon. Look for my coming! (2Tim 1:4)
  • When we created you, we created you for love, joy, peace, and fellowship with us. You were never intended to be separated from us. Your destiny is not to suffer wrath, but receive the many blessings that come with your salvation. How can I bless you now? (1The 5:9)
  • 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)
  • Judgement(40)

  • Our father doesn't judge you the way that people do. They make up rules to make themselves feel like they are better than other people, like what people can eat or touch. But that is not from our father, who is more concerned with you expressing your faith in him through loving him and others. (Col 2:21)
  • Don't think for a minute that I and my father are not bothered by sin. The wrath of God is still coming to all who live apart from us. Even if sexual immorality is commonplace, there is no place for it in the kingdom of God. (Col 3:6)
  • I have said that it is fitting for children to obey their parents, but you also, as a child of God, need to obey your father. When your children have trouble obeying you, remember how hard it is for you at times to obey your father. Be firm, fair and merciful to them just as your father is toward you. (Col 3:20)
  • Love(170)

  • As I fill you with my love for our Father and for others, and teach you more about myself and my heart's desires, you will begin to act just like me. You will have more joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control as you surrender to my Spirit's will, and allow my love to flow through you. As you stand clothed in my righteousness before our Father, you will bring glory, honor and praise to Him. (Phi 1:11)
  • Sometimes it is hard to know whether or not to help someone else. But remember my rule, if someone is unwilling to work they shall not eat. So do not rescue those who are unwilling, not unable, to take care of themselves out of laziness. You encourage their bad behavior by getting into it. (2The 3:10)
  • 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)
  • Mercy(13)

  • My promises are only for those who live by their faith in me. If you don't trust in me, in my goodness, faithfulness, loving kindness, mercy and my power, you won't trust in my promises. Not living by faith in what I have said is like refusing to reach out and take a costly gift which I have laid before you. Be like Abraham, and trust that I will keep my promises to you. But that also entails acting upon that assurance that things will happen according to my timing. (Gal 3:16)
  • Our Father is deserving of all of the glory. That means that he deserves to be seen as the greatest, kindest, most loving and merciful, and most powerful and important being that has ever existed. That is why it is so important for you to imitate my way of life, especially how I made sure that everything I did and said was a true representation of what our father would say and do on Earth. How can you glorify God today? (Phi 4:20)
  • 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)
  • MY PRIVATE MESSAGES ONLY(0)

    Obedience(405)

  • Never ever tire of doing what is good. It is easier to take the low road so many times, and requires much more effort to do what is right. But the road that leads to destruction is very wide, and many follow it. You however are called to the narrow road that leads to eternal life. (2The 3:13)
  • 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)
  • All of the universe praises me, from the angels in heaven to the rocks that will cry out to fill the silence of those who will not sing my praises. The angels are mighty only because they obey me and receive their power from me. Yet, although they are beautiful creations, you are higher and greater than angels. You are not only my creation - you have been adopted as my own child, filled with my Holy Spirit, and will rule and reign with me forever. Praise me with all of your heart! (Psa 103:20)
  • Patience(68)

  • 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)
  • The feeling of being angry leads to angry actions. Then it turns into evil thoughts that lead to evil words. Finally, your lips will spew filthy language. This is not acceptable for children of God; you must rid yourself of all of those things. (Col 3:8)
  • I want you to live a life worthy of me, to please me in every way, expressing love, joy, peace, patience, self control, and all of the fruit of the Spirit. I want you to grow in your knowledge of me by spending more time with me and reading my word. Your goal is to be just like me. (Col 1:10)
  • Peace(37)

  • To be my witness, your reputation must be good with outsiders. Who will accept what you have to say if you leave a bad taste in the mouths of those who know you or have heard of you? That is why you must strive to keep the peace with all who know you, and love everyone. (1Tim 3:7)
  • I want people everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands in praise, not in anger or argument. You are all a part of my body, members that must value each other and treat each other with respect. Do whatever is in your power to be at peace with everyone around you. Who are you struggling with today? (1Tim 2:8)
  • Be careful of people who have an unhealthy interest in controversies, who quarrel about particular words, and who stir up envy, strife, evil speaking and suspicions toward others. If you find them often in the midst of friction between people, stay far away from them. You are called to bring peace wherever you go, so do not seek out trouble or those who cause it. (1Tim 6:4)
  • Power(85)

  • 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)
  • People make the Christian life out to be much harder than it is. Religions have substituted their own rules, regulations and sacrifices for my simple command to listen, trust and obey whatever I say, whenever I say it. That's how you receive salvation, and how my Holy Spirit comes to live within and fill you with my knowledge, my characteristics and my power. Spend some time in my presence today, listening for my words of life for your situation. (Gal 3:2)
  • Are you feeling like you are going around in circles, working on the same lessons over and over again? That happens when you slowly slip from moment by moment communion with and trust in me to trying to figure out and power through everything going on in your life in your own puny strength. Return to me in faith, and everything will eventually fall into place according to my will and original plan. What area of your life has become futile? (Gal 3:4)
  • Praise and Worship(30)

  • I have always sought to please our father and confess him before the world. Imitate me in this way, living as I did while walking on the earth. As a child mimics his parent or older sibling, mimic my dedication to our father, my continual communication with and praise for him. In what areas of your life do you need to act more like me? (1Tim 6:13)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Prayer(54)

  • 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)
  • Did you know you can always CHOOSE what to THINK about? Can't help hearing those ugly whispers from the world and the devil? Well, you can always choose to think about Truth instead. Maybe it's time to memorize a new verse today. (Col 3:2)
  • I know that there are many people you would like to see come to know me, but they seem so blind and closed off. Many live under a powerful delusion because they have believed the lies of the enemy. Pray for them that their eyes may be opened, and that they would accept me when I reveal myself to them. Who can you pray for right now? (2The 2:11)
  • Pride(8)

  • You do not need praise from anyone else, only from me. Even though you carry my authority wherever you go, you do not need other people to recognize that authority. Rarely did I exert my authority over others, but always served. With whom are you tempted to display your authority? (1The 2:6)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • People will learn everything they need to know about you by watching you. Your way of life must reflect my purpose for you, your faith in me, your patience with others, your love for me and others, and your willingness to endure hardship for my sake. You are my letter which I have written for all of the world to read. Live for Me. (2Tim 3:10)
  • 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)
  • Not everyone shares the same calling. That is why I have widely distributed various spiritual gifts and natural talents, and assigned people to different paths. There are so many people who need to discover who I am, and then be taught about me and trained to be my disciple. Just as a body has multiple essential parts to make it work, so it is in my church. Be faithful to fulfill the calling I have placed on your own life. (Gal 2:9)
  • Rejection(27)

  • Although every desire you have in your heart is not in your best interest, it is still the heart of the Father to give you healthy desires of your heart. He knows that long periods spent without something to satisfy your emotional needs can crush your soul and bring on depression. But you must trust that He knows which desires will result in righteousness, and which will lead you into sin and separation from Him. He will satisfy your good desires, and they will help you soar over the struggles you have in your life. (Psa 103:5)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Repentance(11)

  • Everyone wants to be loved and accepted, but it cannot be the focus of your life. The only approval you should strive for is mine. Everyone else's approval is fickle and temporary at best, loving and giving to you only when it best suits them. My approval is eternal, so love and serve me only, and let me bring to you the people who will love and accept you as I do. (Gal 1:10)
  • 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)
  • If someone does not agree with you in regard to my truth, do not try to overpower them by force. You must instruct them gently, and I by my spirit will lead them to repentance, so they can enter into a knowledge of me and my truth. Only then can they come to an understanding of my kingdom. (2Tim 2:25)
  • Righteousness(211)

  • You are no longer in your core the person you used to be. But you have old habits and thought patterns that are not appropriate for a child of God. Your new self, that desires to please me, will only surface when you are surrendered to my spirit, otherwise you will continue to act like you were never saved. (Col 3:7)
  • The more time you spend with me in intimate communion, the more you will know me, and start to resemble me. When you slip back into acting like your old self, you can resurrect your new self by crying out to me for help, and then listening to and obeying my spirit. (Col 3:10)
  • You need to pay attention. Watch your life and the things you believe closely. Then live out those things you believe, persevere in them, because not only will it make you more like me, but it will bring salvation to others around you. (1Tim 4:16)
  • Salvation(124)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • If someone does not agree with you in regard to my truth, do not try to overpower them by force. You must instruct them gently, and I by my spirit will lead them to repentance, so they can enter into a knowledge of me and my truth. Only then can they come to an understanding of my kingdom. (2Tim 2:25)
  • Security(7)

  • 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)
  • When you learn how to find your fulfillment and joy in me despite your external circumstances, you will enjoy endless peace. You never need to doubt that I will provide for whatever you need, especially the ability to continue in the midst of adversity. A lack of things will never affect you while your trust is placed firmly in my loving kindness, power, and faithfulness. What in your life is making you doubt my faithfulness? (Phi 4:12)
  • I know it is easy to be tempted to revenge when someone else has wronged you, especially, if you know you were in the right. One of the greatest ways to apply your faith is to respond with a blessing. Moreover, be an example to others who may be with you in times of trouble so that they can glorify the Father in Heaven. Learn to trust me with all your heart, even in trouble. (Rom 12:19)
  • Servanthood(26)

  • 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 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)
  • Everyone lives by their own code, or by a code that someone else has set for them. Some people believe that I have a set of rules and regulations that, if they follow them, will allow them to get into heaven. But I have only one two-part rule - LISTEN and OBEY. My commands for you personally can change from situation to situation, so live by every word that proceeds from my mouth. (Gal 2:19)
  • Sin(193)

  • Don't let your anger get the best of you. It will blind you, and you will stumble in the darkness. (1Joh 2:11)
  • Because I have brought you out of eternal death and into everlasting life, I have given you the ability to live, not according to the flesh, but according to my spirit. Every time you obey my spirit, which I put in you, you put to death the things your body and mind crave apart from me. (Col 2:11)
  • 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)
  • Strength(47)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • My supernatural, divine power is always with you. It gives you the ability to respond to me in obedience in situations where your mind and body fail you. Utilize that gift of grace to live holy and righteously, to bring others into the kingdom, and to love others as I love you. How can you use my grace today? (1The 5:28)
  • Submission(30)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • There will be times when I will send someone to correct you, because you have wandered away from the truth. It has happened to all of my followers at one time or another, so receive the reproof with humility and submission. I have sent them to you so that you will stop and take a good long look at your life, your words, your thoughts, your actions, and even your belongings, to make sure you are still in the center of my will. (Gal 2:11)
  • Suffering(61)

  • Don't be unsettled by the trials you are facing. I have told you that those who believe in and belong to me are destined for struggles. But remember that I have overcome the world, so you can overcome it as well through Me. What struggle is the most pressing right now? (1The 3:3)
  • Did you know you can always CHOOSE what to THINK about? Can't help hearing those ugly whispers from the world and the devil? Well, you can always choose to think about Truth instead. Maybe it's time to memorize a new verse today. (Col 3:2)
  • 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)
  • Temptation(84)

  • You always have a choice - you can listen to the evil reports of the world and the enemy, or believe the good report of the Father. Open gratitude for all that He has done for you makes you stand out as a blameless and pure Child of God among a godless, warped and crooked generation. Today, SHINE for me, live your life so obviously for me that everyone will see your good works and praise your Father in heaven. (Phi 2:15)
  • I see your struggles with temptation, but I came to take away your sins - to pay for them and rescue you from them. But no one who belongs to me keeps on sinning purposefully. Keep yourself pure. (1Joh 3:6)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • You always have a choice - you can listen to the evil reports of the world and the enemy, or believe the good report of the Father. Open gratitude for all that He has done for you makes you stand out as a blameless and pure Child of God among a godless, warped and crooked generation. Today, SHINE for me, live your life so obviously for me that everyone will see your good works and praise your Father in heaven. (Phi 2:15)
  • Hold firmly to the truth you have learned of me through my Holy Spirit. Every day, you are bombarded by falsehoods, misrepresentations, and even communications spawned by sheer evil. If you meditate on these things, your gaze will be focused on the world and your attitude will become increasingly fleshly. Do not lose all of the ground you have gained through your hard labor in Christ by letting the truth slip from your grasp. Hold on! (Phi 2:16)
  • Unity(2)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Victory(49)

  • Everything I ask you to do, I promise to do through you if you will surrender to my spirit' s leading and power. The energy you need to fight off the world and to live victoriously for me will work powerfully in you. So use up every bit of that energy to serve and obey me. (Col 1:29)
  • Spend as much time as possible getting to know me better, keeping yourself close to me. It is the only way to keep yourself from idols (have other things become more important than me). (1Joh 5:21)
  • 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)
  • Wisdom(71)

  • 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)
  • In order to be a teacher of my word, you must know more than my actual sayings and teachings. You need to understand how a life is transformed by them because you have experienced such a transformation yourself. Beware of people who teach my word, but their life shows that they have not been personally transformed by the truth. (1Tim 1:7)
  • One good reason to read my Word every day is to make sure that your thoughts and actions are still in line with the truth of the gospel. After you have hung around others, do they think more highly of Me and our Father? Do they want to know us more, do they want to be around people who know us, and do they want to be a part of our body? Do you remind them of Me, or do you remind them of themselves? Make sure you pay closer attention to that today. (Gal 2:14)
  • Witnessing(85)

  • One good reason to read my Word every day is to make sure that your thoughts and actions are still in line with the truth of the gospel. After you have hung around others, do they think more highly of Me and our Father? Do they want to know us more, do they want to be around people who know us, and do they want to be a part of our body? Do you remind them of Me, or do you remind them of themselves? Make sure you pay closer attention to that today. (Gal 2:14)
  • You always have a choice - you can listen to the evil reports of the world and the enemy, or believe the good report of the Father. Open gratitude for all that He has done for you makes you stand out as a blameless and pure Child of God among a godless, warped and crooked generation. Today, SHINE for me, live your life so obviously for me that everyone will see your good works and praise your Father in heaven. (Phi 2:15)
  • Stay in my word, so when others ask you about me, you will know how to answer them. If you don't know the answer, tell them you don't know, and then ask and study to find out. But you don't have to know everything to be a faithful witness for me. (Col 4:6)
  • Worry(37)

  • 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)
  • Pray to me, and ask me for opportunities for you to share the good news about me. Do not be afraid or nervous about what you will say. I will provide the timing and the words. (Col 4:3)
  • The world is filled with uncertainty due to the corruption of creation, free will, and the presence of evil. But if you spend your life waiting for the other shoe to drop, you will live in continual anxiety. The only way to have peace is to acknowledge the truth that no matter what happens, our Father will always prove Himself trustworthy to take care of you. (Psa 112:7)
  •
