  • 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 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)
  • Voluntarily submit to any and all changes God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects. (Steps 6 and 7) (Mat 5:6)
  • Abandonment(56)

  • I loved you before you even knew me, long before you loved me. And my love for you will go on forever, throughout eternity. (1Joh 4:19)
  • Direct your thoughts heavenward, toward me, and my kingdom. Don't get caught up in the temporal, earth-bound cares about material things, or what other people think. Keep your mind set on what will be here for you forever - me and our father. (Col 3:2)
  • 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)
  • Anger(29)

  • 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)
  • Why do you struggle and have problems with anger? It's only because you want something that you cannot have, and God is not giving it to you in your timing. You are tempted to go around God to get it for yourself, so you are aggravated. Don't take it out on other people, but wait patiently for me to bring you what you need in my timing. (Jam 4:1)
  • 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)
  • Anxiety(94)

  • Don't be unsettled by the trials you are facing. I have told you that those who believe in and belong to me are destined for struggles. But remember that I have overcome the world, so you can overcome it as well through Me. What struggle is the most pressing right now? (1The 3:3)
  • I am calling you to rejoice in me always. Do not allow the changing and sometimes upsetting circumstances around you to rob you of your joy. When you are upset, you can be quick tempered, and negative. But I need you to keep your faith in me, and to act in love, patience and gentleness despite what is going on around you. What situation is tempting you to not act in love? (Phi 4:5)
  • Contrary to popular belief, our Father is not an angry God waiting to destroy evil doers. He is compassionate, understanding the flaws and failures of men, and gracious, offering His own power to mankind so His followers can obey Him. Unlike man, He is very slow to become angry because he overflows with love for his creation. He longs for everyone to come to Him for salvation and doesn't want anyone to be separated from Him. Think on His loving-kindness toward you and spend time in praise for his mercy in your life. (Psa 103:8)
  • Authority(38)

  • In everything that you do, remember that you are in my presence. I am the one who will judge the living and the dead, the one who is returning to bring his kingdom to the Earth. Because you belong to me, I expect you to act like me and represent me in front of others. (2Tim 4:1)
  • I will reveal things to you privately, however not everything is to be shared publicly with others. When you are in doubt about whether or not something is from me, then share it in private to a select few who are more mature in their relationship with me, and who walk according to their talk. Take their counsel about whether or not what you believe you have received fits into the entire counsel of God through my Word. If it is confirmed, then share it as I direct you. (Gal 2:2)
  • I am the head of the Church, my body. I am the beginning and the end, the first born from among the dead, and I rule over all. I deserve the highest place in your life, your worship, your praise and adoration. Most of all, I deserve your obedience. (Col 1:18)
  • Correction(35)

  • Contrary to popular belief, our Father is not an angry God waiting to destroy evil doers. He is compassionate, understanding the flaws and failures of men, and gracious, offering His own power to mankind so His followers can obey Him. Unlike man, He is very slow to become angry because he overflows with love for his creation. He longs for everyone to come to Him for salvation and doesn't want anyone to be separated from Him. Think on His loving-kindness toward you and spend time in praise for his mercy in your life. (Psa 103:8)
  • 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)
  • There are some people that only want to stir up trouble. The enemy has such a hold on them that they cannot control themselves. Warn them twice that you cannot be around that kind of behavior, and if they continue, stay away from them. Otherwise, you will be seen as a participant with them and be in danger of ruining your own (and my) reputation. (Tit 3:10)
  • Death(16)

  • 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)
  • Although I know you want to be physically in my presence, I have need of you right where you are. I created you for a specific purpose, and until that purpose is completed, you need to stay where I put you. I will lead you and guide you as you remain in me until the day that I bring you home. (Phi 1:23)
  • 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)
  • Depression(50)

  • 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)
  • I will reward you according to your faithfulness to me. If you pour yourself out on my behalf, selflessly giving to others as I direct, then I will fill you back up with myself. You will share in the results of all of your hard work for the kingdom, but you will have to wait until heaven to see the full impact you have had. Do not grow weary of doing good things! (2Tim 2:6)
  • You don't have to fear. You have no reason to be discouraged. I am always with you wherever you go, and I will direct you and fill you with my strength. (Jos 1:9)
  • Discipline(54)

  • 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)
  • My word will teach you things you need to know, rebuke you when you have turned away from me, will show you the right way of doing things, and make you disciplined. If you want to be righteous, then you must apply my instructions to your entire life all the time, not just when it is easy or convenient. (2Tim 3:16)
  • I am calling you to rejoice in me always. Do not allow the changing and sometimes upsetting circumstances around you to rob you of your joy. When you are upset, you can be quick tempered, and negative. But I need you to keep your faith in me, and to act in love, patience and gentleness despite what is going on around you. What situation is tempting you to not act in love? (Phi 4:5)
  • Encouragement(77)

  • You can do this! Don't give up! What you attempt, by faith, I will bless. I will give you my strength when you acknowledge your weakness, and I will give you the same contentment that I had in this world. (Phi 4:13)
  • Do not be surprised when you face persecution. I told you beforehand that if they persecuted me that they will persecute you also. But be encouraged, have no fear, for I am with you always. Tell me what I can do to help you live for me today. (1The 3:4)
  • 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)
  • Faith(238)

  • I will reward you according to your faithfulness to me. If you pour yourself out on my behalf, selflessly giving to others as I direct, then I will fill you back up with myself. You will share in the results of all of your hard work for the kingdom, but you will have to wait until heaven to see the full impact you have had. Do not grow weary of doing good things! (2Tim 2:6)
  • 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)
  • Tell others about me wherever you go. Sing about me, talk about me, share pictures and videos about me. But most of all, live your life so that others can see me through your actions, words, and especially your gratitude for what I have done for you. (Col 3:16)
  • Fear(94)

  • Do not be ashamed or embarrassed when you get the desire to share my words or about my life. I am prompting you by my Holy Spirit within you to tell others, regardless of whether or not they accept you, or they ridicule or persecute you. I will prepare their hearts; you only have to be obedient to plant the good seed of your testimony in their hearts. I will reap the harvest later. (2Tim 1:8)
  • YES, my Beloved, that WAS hard and NOT what you wanted. But I know what you NEED. TRUST Me. (Jer 29:11)
  • 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)
  • For Men(2)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • For Women(10)

  • Wives must not rage and battle against their husbands. If they want something, they must come to me in prayer, and asked me for it. I can change even Pharaoh's hard heart; so I can change their husband's heart as well. (Col 3:18)
  • 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)
  • 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(25)

  • Before you committed yourself to me and my service, you lived only for your own selfish desires. You did not care if you angered or grieved my Holy Spirit. Now that you are mine, sin should cause you great pain and lead you to repentance. Is there anything you want to confess now? (Col 3:7)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Giving(36)

  • 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)
  • When you are standing firm in me, you bring great joy not only to me, but to those who have poured themselves into you so you may become mature in your faith. You can be a blessing to those who have blessed you by sharing with them the good things I reveal to you and accomplish in your life. Who can you encourage today? (1The 3:8)
  • My church is supposed to act as the body it was created to be, many parts led by one Head. A body protects its members from harm, and bears the excess weight when one member has been hurt. When one person has hardship, the others should share with them practically, and they are right in expecting the same help when they experience hardship. Who in hardship can you share with today? (Phi 4:14)
  • Grief(20)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Heaven(25)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Now that you belong to me, you live by an entirely new and different code - the code of self-sacrificial love. My father does not judge you by rules and regulations, but by whether or not you obey what I tell you, either through the word or personally through prayer. Beware of people who say you have to follow their rules to get to heaven - follow only me! (Col 2:20)
  • Holiness(120)

  • 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)
  • I am your king and your God. I am eternal, living forever, immortal, never dying, invisible to the human eye, and the one true God. You must strive to live so that your life will bring me honor and glory. How can you best honor me today? (1Tim 1:17)
  • It only takes a small amount of evil to start tainting everything good in your life. One white lie, twisting or omitting the truth, is a tactic of the enemy. Once you give in to him, it is hard to disentangle yourself. Reject every kind of evil - run from it. What in your life should you be turning away from? (1The 5:22)
  • Hope(33)

  • You will play an integral part in building the faith of those whom I will bring to you. You will be a source of hope and joy as you model your trust and belief in me through your outward actions and your words. Trust in me as I put you in situations where I need you to be faithful to your calling and my plan for your life. (Phi 1:25)
  • Because you know me, the timing of my return may be unknown, but you expect my coming. To those who do not know me, my return will be frightening. However, for you, it will be the sudden fulfillment of a long desired hope, like a dream come true. Tell me what you've dreamed of doing in heaven... (1The 5:4)
  • When you struggle with keeping your faith, or loving others, focus on the hope you have because of your future home in heaven. Remember where you are headed, and that this world is not your true home. (Col 1:5)
  • Humility(11)

  • There will be times when I will hold you back from going to certain places, or meeting with certain people. There is a time and a season and a purpose for everything I do and do not do. Simply listen and obey, go when I say go, follow when I say follow. Trust my timing for everything in your life. In what area of your life are you tempted to rush ahead of me? (Gal 1:18)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Joy(26)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • You will play an integral part in building the faith of those whom I will bring to you. You will be a source of hope and joy as you model your trust and belief in me through your outward actions and your words. Trust in me as I put you in situations where I need you to be faithful to your calling and my plan for your life. (Phi 1:25)
  • Judgement(39)

  • If I have revealed something to you that aligns with the truth of my Word, do not be intimidated by those around you who disagree with you. If either you or they are wrong, I am fully capable of revealing the truth to everyone involved. Do not argue. Just persist in living according to the revelation which you have received, regardless if others agree with you or not. (Gal 2:5)
  • Compare everything that you hear to the sound doctrine which you have heard in the gospel concerning me. But first you must know what I have said in order to make the comparison. Study to understand me and my kingdom so you can discern between what is the truth and what is just man's ideas. (1Tim 1:11)
  • 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)
  • Love(170)

  • Teach others what you have learned from me. I have given you the authority to act in my name, encouraging and correcting as I would - which is in love. Don't be swayed by the negative attitude of others, because my opinion is the only one that matters. (Tit 2:15)
  • I understand you sometimes are hesitant to come to me because of the mess ups along the way, but remember my patient love. I will never give up on you. (1Cor 13:4)
  • Do not think that God is blind to those who persecute and reject his children. But remember that they are still part of his beloved creation, and though he hates their sins, he loves them and wants them to become adopted as children of God. Have you been experiencing feelings of rejection from anyone? (1The 2:15)
  • Mercy(13)

  • Our Father is worthy of your time being spent thinking and talking about how awesome He is. Let yourself be truly amazed at how massive and powerful He is, so it increases your faith in Him. The world has no problem speaking against His existence, or denying His power. So do not be ashamed to publicly extol His goodness and loving-kindness, faithfulness and mercy through your words, and more importantly, your actions. (Psa 103:1)
  • It is not enough to have kindly thoughts towards someone in need, to feel compassion for their situation and not to express it in a practical way. If you have the opportunity to do something about it, then do it. Remember that you are a part of a larger body, and you must take care of one another. Put yourself in their place and act as you would want someone else to act on your behalf. (Phi 4:10)
  • 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)
  • MY PRIVATE MESSAGES ONLY(0)

    Obedience(404)

  • Remember that you normally have an audience for everything you say and do. So do the things that you think I would do. That includes praising our Father for all he has done and given to us. (Col 3:17)
  • The father and I are always so proud of your growing faith, and how much greater your love is now than it was when you first came to know us. But your faith only grows when it is challenged, so do not be surprised when more challenges come your way. And love only becomes a habit when you are continually challenged to give yourself away for people who care nothing for you. What is your faith/love challenge today? (2The 1:3)
  • I am your king and your God. I am eternal, living forever, immortal, never dying, invisible to the human eye, and the one true God. You must strive to live so that your life will bring me honor and glory. How can you best honor me today? (1Tim 1:17)
  • Patience(67)

  • You will play an integral part in building the faith of those whom I will bring to you. You will be a source of hope and joy as you model your trust and belief in me through your outward actions and your words. Trust in me as I put you in situations where I need you to be faithful to your calling and my plan for your life. (Phi 1:25)
  • 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)
  • You don't need to worry about me losing patience with you. I love you, and know your heart is to do the right thing. Talk to me about what's going on with you right now. (1Cor 13:4)
  • Peace(36)

  • This is my daily blessing over your life: may you be filled with my strength to handle whatever you face today, and be merciful to others in the same way I have been merciful to you. And may you be filled with my unshakable peace that passes all understanding. Go in my love. (1Tim 1:2)
  • For every relationship problem, the answer is love. It covers a multitude of sins, and binds us all together as one. I'm not talking about selfish worldly love. I mean selfless giving of yourself to benefit others, like my death on the cross to save you. (Col 3:14)
  • 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)
  • Power(85)

  • I want to pour my grace upon you abundantly, and provide you with an increase of faith and love toward me and others. It doesn't matter who you were before or what you have done, it only matters to me who you are in me today. Utilize my grace to live for me and make me proud today. (1Tim 1:14)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Praise and Worship(30)

  • I alone possess immortality and live in unapproachable light. No man has ever seen me in all of my glory. I am all-powerful and worthy of all honor and glory. Take time now to praise me for all that I am! (1Tim 6:16)
  • I will rescue you from every evil attack against you. I have promised that I will bring you safely into my heavenly Kingdom. That is why all glory, honor and praise is due to my name for ever and ever. (2Tim 4:18)
  • 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)
  • Prayer(53)

  • 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)
  • I saved you with my own blood, buying you out of your slavery to sin, so that you could be adopted by our Father. That is why your heart yearns for Him, and your spirit cries out to Him, "Daddy." Don't you understand that your deepest need is really to be close to Him, to experience His protection as well as His everlasting love? Indulge yourself and give in to your need - spend time in intimate communion with Him now. (Gal 4:5)
  • Consider your prayers as a weapon of warfare, battling for the maturity and well-being of your brothers and sisters. Pray that they know and understand my will. Cover them in prayer continually. (Col 4:12)
  • Pride(8)

  • Beware of people who believe they know everything about me and the father. People who repeatedly talk about themselves and what they know and have done are looking to glorify themselves. Take no notice of what they say - simply pray that they return to me in meekness and humility. (Col 2:18)
  • 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)
  • Everything you have accomplished on your own is basically worthless in and to the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those things that are inspired by and carried through by my Spirit will last - everything else will pass away. Until you consider as loss everything you do apart from me, you will still wander away, expending your energy pointlessly. Make sure you are listening to and obeying my words only. (Phi 3:7)
  • Purpose(49)

  • It is my desire that each member of my flock is watched over by another member. That is why I assigned an order to my body, to my church. Those who are more mature in the Lord should watch over the younger ones, and train them up to be disciplined and faithful to me. Listen and wait for me to tell you how you can help someone else grow in me. (Tit 1:5)
  • Although I have a singular purpose for your life, you were never meant to go it alone. I need you to stand firm in my Holy Spirit alongside of your brothers and sisters in Christ. You need each other as you strive to bring the truth of my gospel to those who do not know me. (Phi 1:27)
  • I have placed many gifts within you, but they will lie dormant if you do not seek to use them. I need you to understand how important you are to my kingdom, otherwise I wouldn't have entrusted those gifts to you. When you are obedient to faithfully use them in obedience to me, you will see mountains move! (2Tim 1:6)
  • 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)
  • It is very tempting to give in to fears of rejection and ridicule, and change the way you act or talk around certain people. You may censor what you share about me in their presence, or possibly change how you act to better fit in with them. But you know better than this - especially around people who so desperately need you to be different than them, to be a light in a dark place, to be Christ-like among people who are worldly. Be strong and courageous, and live for me regardless of who surrounds you. (Gal 2:12)
  • 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)
  • Repentance(10)

  • 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)
  • Those who have been entrapped by the devil cannot be stolen from his grasp by the force of your words or your will. It will take gentle instruction and sincere love for them. It is my kindness that leads them to repentance, and is their only hope of coming to their senses and escaping the trap of the enemy. (2Tim 2:26)
  • The gospel is not a man-made story. I am real, I am true, and am perfectly able to reveal myself to you and others in power. Whether or not they will believe, accept, and live for me is another thing, but do not doubt that I can prove my word to be true to those who are seeking me. Simply continue to live for and direct people to me. I will do the rest. (Gal 1:11)
  • Righteousness(210)

  • When people recognize how you have made such a marked change in your life, and don't do the things you used to do or that others do, people will talk about it. And that is good, I want them to talk about it. It is how I am glorified. (1The 1:9)
  • I know you live in this world, but you belong to another world, my kingdom. You are a soldier in my army, and your allegiance is to me, your commanding officer. Do not get entangled in the affairs of this world, getting instructions from or trying to please others. Only try to please me. (2Tim 2:4)
  • If you decide you want to make yourself feel "righteous" by obeying legalistic rules, then you are setting yourself up to have to obey every single rule, or be condemned by those very laws. If you live by the law, you can't pick and choose which laws you will and will not obey. Either you try to justify yourself by obeying regulations, or you live by faith in me, obeying what my Holy Spirit instructs. But only by living by faith are you considered righteous. (Gal 5:3)
  • Salvation(124)

  • 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 world worships many different things, but there is only one true God. People try many ways to get to heaven, and to purge themselves of their sins, but there is only one mediator between God and mankind, and that is me. No one else has given up their life as a ransom for them, which is why I deserve all the praise and glory and honor. (1Tim 2:5)
  • Those who do not believe in me have a corrupted mind and conscience. But those who have placed their faith in me have purified themselves, their mind and conscience. They are sensitive to the leading and conviction of the Holy Spirit. Continue to purify yourself for my sake. (Tit 1:15)
  • Security(6)

  • I call you to come to me, listen to me, trust me and in faith, obey me. That is the covenant between you and I. You entrust yourself and everything that is important to you unto my care, and I, in turn, provide for and protect you. I have everything you need for life and godliness, but it is up to you to stay filled with my Spirit and close to me so you can access all of the gifts I so long to give you. What in your life is pulling you away from me? (Psa 103:18)
  • 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)
  • Servanthood(26)

  • 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)
  • I keep an account of how you utilize the goods and finances I have entrusted to your care. When you use it wisely and according to my will, I will increase my favor in your life. Your stewardship of all that I entrust to you shows that you acknowledge Me as the source of everything you have gained. In the measure that you give to others as I direct, you will receive from me. (Phi 4:17)
  • 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(192)

  • Oh, how much joy you will experience in the presence of our father because of those you have turned toward him. Those at one time destined for eternal separation from God will dance before you in his presence, and you will see the difference that your faithfulness and love has made in the lives of others. Imagine it now. (1The 3:9)
  • The best that the law can do is act as a driving instructor. It can't make you drive the speed limit, or stay on the right side of the road, or not crash into someone else. But living by faith is like having the Holy Spirit take the wheel and drive lawfully for you. You start desiring to do what is right, so you don't need an instructor telling you what not to do. Surrender to the Spirit's leading today and you will automatically fulfill the righteousness of the law. (Gal 3:24)
  • Whenever you perform tasks for other people, especially at your job, do it as though I was your supervisor. Do it joyfully, with all of your energy, and give your employer everything they have paid for and more. (Col 3:22)
  • Strength(46)

  • Don't be unsettled by the trials you are facing. I have told you that those who believe in and belong to me are destined for struggles. But remember that I have overcome the world, so you can overcome it as well through Me. What struggle is the most pressing right now? (1The 3:3)
  • I am the express image of our invisible father, and he has placed me over all the earth, and all creation. He gave me that authority as his first born, but you have been adopted as his child as well, and also inherit this authority. (Col 1:15)
  • I am your great reward. I am the home to which you will come when you finally lay aside this body and the trappings of this world. Press on, keep moving forward, despite the resistance you experience, until you can wrap your arms around me and claim for yourself the prize for which you have worked so hard - me. (Phi 3:14)
  • Submission(30)

  • 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)
  • The curse of trying to live by the law is that you can never be successful. No human can perfectly live out every single law, so they are cursed to experience repeated failure if they try. But I have redeemed you from the curse of failure, from the futility of trying to be perfect before God through your own feeble abilities. I have freed you from religious legality and filled you with my Spirit, who is the only one who can empower you to live righteously through faith. Stop trying to be perfect and simply focus on continual communion with me. (Gal 3:13)
  • 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)
  • Suffering(60)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • YES, my Beloved, that WAS hard and NOT what you wanted. But I know what you NEED. TRUST Me. (Jer 29:11)
  • Temptation(83)

  • Stand firm and hold fast to the teachings I have shared with you, whether through the scriptures in the Bible, or the whispering of the Holy Spirit directly to you. Life in this world can become so confusing, because everyone has an opinion and something to say. But you must always place my word above every other conversation, and compare everything to my truth. (2The 2:15)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Thanksgiving(27)

  • I have spoken to you about your future, giving you hopes and dreams so that you can recall them when you're struggling and fight the battle well. Just because you are not seeing the fulfillment of those dreams right now doesn't mean they will not come to pass. Sometimes my answer is not yes or no, but not now. Trust me with your future. (1Tim 1:18)
  • 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 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)
  • 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)

  • Some people care more about being thought of as knowledgeable, even if it means never knowing the truth. The truth is that I lived on the earth, I died to pay for your sins, and rose again to show my triumph over the enemy. I am coming back for you soon, and those are the only truths that matter. (2Tim 2:18)
  • Your prayers do make a difference! Do not give up now. Your faith combined with the power of my Spirit can move mountains in your life and the lives of others. Join with your brothers and sisters in constant prayer, and watch me trample the darkness by bringing my Kingdom of light here to earth. (Phi 1:19)
  • I want you to acknowledge those who work hard for my kingdom among you. Those who care for you, encourage you, teach you and hold you accountable deserve your highest regard. They are not perfect, but neither are you, so don't judge them for their failures, but praise them for their victories. Who can you praise and encourage today? (1The 5:12)
  • Wisdom(71)

  • Be very careful to pay close attention to my words. They are trustworthy to convey my thoughts and my will without anyone adding to them. Learn them well so that you can encourage others by explaining my words to them, and especially to those who do not understand or believe. (Tit 1:9)
  • Many people really believe that what they have been taught by others is the truth. They will act upon it with all earnestness. But that does not mean that it is the truth. Be careful to compare what others say to the truth of my word. And be merciful to those who believe not according to my word but what they have been taught. You do not have the complete truth either, so do not judge them. (Gal 1:14)
  • 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)
  • Witnessing(85)

  • Strive to understand my words, not only individually, but my entire way of thinking and the things that are important to me. One part of my words will not contradict another if you understand my point of view and purpose. Do not attempt to teach others what you do not yet fully understand, but boldly share the things of which you are confident. (Tit 2:1)
  • 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)
  • Although the father and I love you without measure, we also love the people around you. We want them to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth of who I am and why I died for them. We need you to live your life in such a way that you draw people's attention to us, and it gives them a reason to want to learn more about the father and I. (1Tim 2:4)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Don't put your trust in other people and other relationships - that will always lead to disappointment. People come and go, and do not have control over their own actions or what will happen to them. But you can completely trust in and rely upon me, because I will never, never, never leave you or abandon you. (Heb 13:5)
  •
