  • Step 12. Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others, and practice these principles in all our affairs. - Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. (Gal 6:1)
  • Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust. (Steps 4 and 5) (Mat 5:8)
  • Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ's care and control. (Step 3) (Mat 5:5)
  • Abandonment(56)

  • I am near to you when you are broken-hearted. I feel your pain and weep with you. I know how low you feel, and will not leave you without comfort. The Spirit will wrap Himself around you and remind you how much you are loved by me. (Psa 34:18)
  • 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)
  • When I come back for you, you will no longer be hampered by your flaws and failures, because you will be transformed into my likeness. You will share in my glory, my characteristics and traits. Eagerly look forward to that day, but live through me now. (Col 3:4)
  • Anger(30)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Many things can take you by surprise, but don't let them rock your world. Instead, make sure that you do not react, but that you strive to consistently act in love in every circumstance. That is how you live a life worthy of your calling. (Phi 1:27)
  • Anxiety(95)

  • 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)
  • Whoever comes to me, I will keep with me forever. I will not cast them away from me. So you are safe with me if you have entrusted yourself to my care. Rest in my faithfulness. (Joh 6:37)
  • 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)
  • Authority(39)

  • When you have a position of authority over others, remember that you are still under my authority. I am your supervisor, and they are my employees. So treat them as I would treat them, and judge them as you would have me judge you. (Col 4:1)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Correction(35)

  • 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)
  • There are people whose determination to do what they please and avoid correction have warped them. Their every thought and action by now is sinful. I do not condemn them, but their own actions repeatedly do. Witness to them as I give you the opportunity, but otherwise stay away and simply pray for them. (Tit 3:11)
  • It is easy to falsely believe that you can act one way in private while displaying another personality in public. But I see you at all times, and I am the one you should strive to please. Continually submit yourself to my spirit, and do not give in to the temptation to be quick tempered, or lose self-control, or do things which are in the slightest way untrue. (Tit 1:7)
  • Death(16)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Depression(50)

  • I am near to you when you are broken-hearted. I feel your pain and weep with you. I know how low you feel, and will not leave you without comfort. The Spirit will wrap Himself around you and remind you how much you are loved by me. (Psa 34:18)
  • It doesn't matter how dark the night seems, or how deep the valley goes. You don't need to fear because I am always with you. If you wander away too far, I will reach out and bring you back to me. Be comforted in the fact that I am your shepherd that leads you, your protector and provider, and nothing and no one can withstand my power. (Psa 23:4)
  • You must not place your hope in anything in this world, because it will disappoint you. The one sure hope in your life is that I will never fail you. Keep your eyes looking toward my soon coming appearance, when I will return for my bride, the Church. (Tit 2:13)
  • Discipline(55)

  • Reminders of your failures only come from 2 places - the enemy of your soul and your own heart. The Holy Spirit will convict you of sin, but never try to make you feel worthless. He expresses my love for you while reminding you what I have said about sin and righteousness. Our Father will not continue to accuse you of something for which you have repented - He is not angry about what has been forgiven. Trust in His never ending love for you, and the permanence of the salvation I have purchased for you with my own blood. (Psa 103:9)
  • I know 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)
  • In the same way that I poured everything I had out for you, I need you to be willing to pour yourself out for me. I need you to lay yourself down on the altar as a living sacrifice for me, pure, holy, acceptable. That means laying down your rights, your dreams, and your desires, so that my will might be done in your life and the lives of others. Are you willing to do this? (2Tim 4:6)
  • Encouragement(78)

  • No matter what your earthly heritage may be, by placing your faith in me, you have become a descendant of Abraham, the Father of all faith. He trusted and obeyed me, leaving all that was familiar to him in order to travel to an unknown location and face unimagined challenges, all because he believed that I was trustworthy and would keep my promises to him. So trust me as I send you to unfamiliar places and ask you to do unexpected things. I will not disappoint you in the end. (Gal 3:29)
  • My words are not only for you. Although I try to communicate my personal intentions for you through them, my word was meant to be shared. If I have taught you anything, I don't want you to keep it to yourself. Share it with the rest of the family, because that's how I intend for them to learn and mature. What could you share? (1The 5:27)
  • 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)
  • Faith(238)

  • 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)
  • Work on the building up of your faith as if it were a competition to win. Let your consistency in seeking me take pre-eminence in your life, and your confession of me as your Lord be what you are known for publicly. Let the most important thing in your life be becoming more like me. (1Tim 6:12)
  • 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)
  • Fear(95)

  • Whoever comes to me, I will keep with me forever. I will not cast them away from me. So you are safe with me if you have entrusted yourself to my care. Rest in my faithfulness. (Joh 6:37)
  • You can get through anything today, because you don't have to do it through your own strength. You can do it through my Spirit within you. Can you praise me right now for how I will carry you through this? (Zec 4:6)
  • 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)
  • For Men(2)

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

  • You are so beautiful to me. Everything about you is exquisite to me, because I fashioned you just for myself. Every part of you is perfect to me. (Son 4:1)
  • I can't wait until I can hold you in my arms and embrace you. You are my beloved one, my sister and my love. (Son 2:6)
  • 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 is possible to continue in sin for so long that you no longer care about it. Such people have consciences that have been seared as with a hot iron. If you continually spurn the leading of the Holy Spirit within you, your heart and your mind will become stubborn and rebellious against me. If there is anything wrong in your life, repent of it now and return to me. (1Tim 4:2)
  • You've got to be honest with yourself, and acknowledge your thoughts and actions that go the wrong way. I know that you want to do right, but don't always get it right. Just confess them to me, and everything will be forgiven. (1Joh 1:9)
  • This world is evil. People naturally are selfish and self-protecting, and even creation has been warped since the time of the Fall. But I willingly laid my life down to pay for your sins, and to rescue you from the power of this present evil age. If I had not gone away, the Holy Spirit would not have come to live inside of you, giving you the power to live godly every day. That is the will of our father for your life. (Gal 1:4)
  • Giving(36)

  • Remember when your emotions were out of control? Remember when not knowing the future would shake you? And then I came into your life and brought peace. Be thankful everyday for what I have done for you. (Col 3:15)
  • I want you to be so filled with me that everyone around you marvels - not at you - but at me. They will boast about what I have done in your life and the marvelous transformation that I brought about in you. Everywhere you go, let your love so shine that everyone around you gives thanks for your father in heaven. (Phi 1:26)
  • Bless me by praising me with all of your heart, soul and strength. Praise my name because it is the name above all other names, and at my name, every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that I am Lord. Remember all that I have done for you so far, and look ahead to my promises for your future, and praise me! (Psa 103:1)
  • Grief(20)

  • I know you wonder what it will be like when I return. I will come down from heaven with a loud command, and you will hear the voice of the Archangel and the trumpet call of God. The dead who believed in me will rise first and we will all be reunited. It will be glorious! (1The 4:16)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Healing(5)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • I can turn any situation into one that glorifies our Father and further transforms you into my image. I can even take sickness and use it for good, displaying my mighty power within you while you are humanly weak. I can open doors for witnessing that were previously shut, and provide opportunities for miracles. I am still with you, remaining Lord over all, and I will not waste one opportunity to bring you closer to me, and simultaneously reconcile the world to our Father. (Gal 4:13)
  • Heaven(25)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Holiness(120)

  • It is a fine line you must walk when your brother or sister is walking in willful sin. You should never regard them as an enemy, but you need to warn them. You cannot hang around with them either, because bad company truly does corrupt good character. (2The 3:15)
  • Godliness can only come when you have God living in you. When God lives in you, you have God's power as well. There is no such thing as godliness without power. So avoid anyone who tells you godliness is based on rules and regulations, because it only comes from my spirit indwelling you. (2Tim 3:5)
  • Remember, whether you are at work, at church, or at play, you serve me. Do your absolute best, always giving all you have, leaving the reward up to me. Don't look to anyone else to repay you, or you will repeatedly be disappointed. (Col 3:24)
  • Hope(34)

  • I knew you while you were yet in your mother's womb. I fashioned and formed you for the purpose for which you were born. I have set you apart from this world and from others that you might fulfill your calling and be dedicated to me. And I will empower you by my Holy Spirit to complete every good work I have assigned to you. Your surrender to me and my will brings me great pleasure. (Gal 1:15)
  • Remember always that you are a Child of the Light, and since you belong to the day, keep your eyes open and your wits about you. Protect your heart by continually entrusting it to me, and loving our father and others as I have loved you. Always keep the hope of your salvation in the forefront of your mind, to protect your thoughts. In what area is your faith wavering or your thoughts wandering? (1The 5:8)
  • You must not place your hope in anything in this world, because it will disappoint you. The one sure hope in your life is that I will never fail you. Keep your eyes looking toward my soon coming appearance, when I will return for my bride, the Church. (Tit 2:13)
  • Humility(12)

  • 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)
  • By taking on the form of man, and obeying even if it meant giving up my life, I was able to show you how to humble yourself through obedience. Humility before God means acknowledging that He and His will is of great importance because He is our Creator and Sustainer. Humility before people means acknowledging that you are not the most important person, and that others are just as important to God, and should always be treated with value and dignity. (Phi 2:8)
  • I know it is easy to be tempted to revenge when someone else has wronged you, especially, if you know you were in the right. One of the greatest ways to apply your faith is to respond with a blessing. Moreover, be an example to others who may be with you in times of trouble so that they can glorify the Father in Heaven. Learn to trust me with all your heart, even in trouble. (Rom 12:19)
  • Joy(26)

  • The more you understand about me and my kingdom, the more hope you will have where others may experience despair. Death for non-believers leads to inconsolable grief. Death for believers is a momentary separation that will end in reunion in the future. Who can you share that hope with today? (1The 4:13)
  • Rejoice in me! 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)
  • I stand here in heaven, waiting to give you the crown of righteousness. You have eagerly longed for my appearing, have continued to believe what I say is true, and have acted upon it. I have credited righteousness to you because of your faith in me. I call you to continue to walk in faith until the day I place the crown upon your head. (2Tim 4:8)
  • Judgement(40)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Always remember how much you have been forgiven, and that others deserve the same kind of forgiveness. You were no better than anyone else, but I forgave you. Accept others as I accepted you, knowing that they are as imperfect as you are in this world. (Col 3:13)
  • 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 am completely capable of providing for everything you need in this life. You don't have to be concerned about how you will get things for yourself, or hoard things out of fear of the future. Instead, I want you to focus on meeting the needs of others around you, spending yourself on them on my behalf, as I would do if I were physically there. I will direct, empower and provide for you regarding how and what you should do for others. Who is around you that needs help today? (Phi 2:4)
  • 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)
  • Mercy(13)

  • Reminders of your failures only come from 2 places - the enemy of your soul and your own heart. The Holy Spirit will convict you of sin, but never try to make you feel worthless. He expresses my love for you while reminding you what I have said about sin and righteousness. Our Father will not continue to accuse you of something for which you have repented - He is not angry about what has been forgiven. Trust in His never ending love for you, and the permanence of the salvation I have purchased for you with my own blood. (Psa 103:9)
  • I 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)
  • Our Father knows what His children are made of, both literally and figuratively. He formed you from the dust of the ground, as is proven by comparing the elements found in the earth's crust and your physical body. But more crucially, He understands your failings and flaws because I became a man and experienced every temptation and emotion you experience. I am the high priest that truly empathizes with your struggles, so come and share with me your heart's cries, knowing I truly understand. (Psa 103:14)
  • MY PRIVATE MESSAGES ONLY(0)

    Obedience(405)

  • 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 encourage you to continue in diligent and earnest prayer, night and day, that you might be my channel to supply others with what they need to build their faith. It will require you listening for me throughout the day, and obeying me even when you do not understand my instructions. I want to use you in the life of your brothers and sisters. Will you let me use you today? (1The 3:10)
  • When I come back for you, you will no longer be hampered by your flaws and failures, because you will be transformed into my likeness. You will share in my glory, my characteristics and traits. Eagerly look forward to that day, but live through me now. (Col 3:4)
  • Patience(68)

  • 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)
  • Don't worry about those who cause you problems. We've got this, and we will deal with them in our own way and time. The father and I will repay with affliction those who afflict you. You just concern yourself with living righteously for me, and leave the rest to us. (2The 1:6)
  • 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)
  • Peace(37)

  • It is so easy to get annoyed and aggravated with your brothers and sisters, but you need to work hard to live in peace with each other. When you call someone else selfish, it just means they won't do what you want them to. It will take dying to yourself and your own desires and supposed rights in order to remain in peace with those around you. Who are you really struggling with today? (1The 5:13)
  • When you have me living in you, you have access to my supernatural power, my loving kindness, and my peace. But you can't access them when you are handling things in your own strength. Surrender and let me handle things for you. (2Joh 1:3)
  • 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)
  • Power(85)

  • 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)
  • You cannot love people in your own strength. My agape love is a spiritual love, and flesh is incapable of it. Your love will dwindle, and eventually you will lose patience and become cold toward others. So call upon my Spirit to continually re-fill you with the same love I have for the Father and for you. Then pour yourself out upon others without measure, and I will fill you over and over again. (Gal 4:15)
  • 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)
  • Praise and Worship(30)

  • While others are busy complaining about what's wrong at work, I want you to stand out from the crowd with a great attitude. Give thanksgiving and praise for what is good, and do not join the throng in bad mouthing. Speaking negatively does not bring me glory, or lead others to me. (Col 3:23)
  • 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)
  • Pray at all times, not only at appointed, dedicated times, but also throughout the day. Prayer is simply communicating with me, and you can do that through singing, reading, thinking, praying, dancing - anything that brings you closer to me. What do you want to communicate to me right now? (1The 5:17)
  • Prayer(54)

  • The enemy may try to block your way as you work for my kingdom and my purposes. But he does not have the last say, for our father counteracts everything the prince of this world does, so that His will and Kingdom reign supreme. What do you want the father to move for you today? (1The 2:18)
  • 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 pray, I want you to pray for those who are in authority over you. That includes kings and queens and presidents, as well as your supervisors at work. My goal for you is that you may live peacefully and quietly in all godliness and holiness, and those in authority over you will affect your life in those areas. (1Tim 2:2)
  • Pride(8)

  • 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)
  • I know you could list off the reasons to be proud of yourself, the things you have done right all on your own. But they are nothing to boast about. Recounting to yourself and others your accomplishments is a sign of your own insecurity in me, your thoughts and fears that you are not enough just as you are, and have to keep on bolstering your self-worth through your achievements. All that matters is what I have achieved in and through you by my Spirit. Stop striving and let me be your source of worth today. (Phi 3:4)
  • There 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)
  • Purpose(49)

  • Everyone plays a part in my plan. Some parts are public, seen by many people. But others perform in secret, with their reward waiting for them in heaven. Whether the purpose is elevated or common, each person helps to bring the kingdom of God to earth according to my will. (2Tim 2:20)
  • You have been chosen to know me, above all other peoples. You are mine, so I have placed my spirit within you and I am in you always. My spirit is transforming you into my image, which is your hope of being glorified, made just like me. (Col 1:26)
  • 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)
  • Rejection(27)

  • 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)
  • It is tempting to look for acceptance from or agreement with others who are held in high esteem, but such a desire is not from me. If I give you a revelation about myself, that is all you need to know. Do not look for approval from others in regard to what you have learned. Simply live according to the truth, and if need be, I will reveal that truth to others around you as well. (Gal 2:6)
  • Through all of your earthly struggles, remember that a rest is coming for you when you will no longer have to deal with them. You will be with the father and I forever. Just think of the day I will come in the clouds from heaven with the angels to take you home with me. Until then, rest in me and I will bring you through everything myself. (2The 1:7)
  • Repentance(11)

  • 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)
  • Sometimes you knowingly do what you know you shouldn't do. You wait for the other shoe to drop, but I am not eagerly looking forward to disciplining you. My desire is to be merciful toward you, and your true, sorrowful repentance allows my mercy to flow. For what do you need to confess and repent right now? (2Tim 1:18)
  • Out of our Father's love for all of mankind, he sent me, his Son, to pay for the sins of everyone. But only those who believe that my death paid for their sins, and who repent of their sins (truly don't want to sin anymore) and surrender to me as Lord over their life, have that payment applied to their debt. This is the only true gospel, and should anyone tell you that you must do anything else in order to be saved, you must not believe it. (Gal 1:6)
  • Righteousness(211)

  • By my death, I paid the debt that you owed because of your sins, and purchased you out of slavery to sin. You are now free to live for me by the power and guidance of my Spirit living within you. You are no longer condemned for the sins of your flesh because you now live by faith in me and the Father says you are righteous and holy. Do not endanger your freedom by trying to earn your righteousness through following laws, or enslaving yourself to habitual sin. (Gal 5:1)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Salvation(124)

  • 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)
  • My highest desire for you on earth is to become an example of me to others. Your core beliefs, your attitudes, your thoughts, actions and emotions need to be transformed every day to become more and more like mine. This won't just happen by itself - it will take listening to and obeying me through the power of my Holy Spirit. (1The 1:7)
  • 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)
  • Security(7)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Servanthood(26)

  • I have said that the poor will always be with you, but I never said that you should ignore them. It is easy to look away, forget them, or simply just focus on getting those extras that you want. But others have NEEDS, not wants, that they simply cannot meet without you sharing the resources you have received by my hand. Look around you and don't be so self-centered that you forget the least of these who need you to pay attention to them. (Gal 2:10)
  • When I walked on the earth, I knew I was God, but never used that as leverage to manipulate other people to do what I wanted. I didn't come to the earth to have others serve my needs and wants, but to serve them. I need you to have this same servant mindset, and be ready to serve others' needs as they present themselves and as I direct you. (Phi 2:6)
  • 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)
  • Sin(193)

  • When you utilize the power I have placed in you and others see it, you point people toward me by revealing how powerful I truly am. You glorify my name when you tell others about what I have done for, in and through you. I want to be glorified throughout the world, but I want to start within your world and the people around you. With whom can you share something I have done for you? (2The 1:12)
  • 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)
  • Adam and Eve walked with me in the garden, content with everything that I provided for them. It wasn't until the enemy focused their eyes on what they did not have that they turned away from trust in me for all of their needs. Pursuing objects and people outside of my will, trying to go around me to obtain them, will only end in sorrow. What are you tempted to get for yourself because I will not provide it in your timing? (1Tim 6:10)
  • Strength(47)

  • You are a part of my family, and you must be willing to get involved in the lives of your brothers and sisters personally. Warn those who are either not doing anything for the kingdom, or are doing things to pull people apart. Encourage the disheartened, help the weak, and be patient with everyone. For whom can you be my hands and feet today? (1The 5:14)
  • How you live has a great influence on the people around you. How you act shows how powerful God's strength is in you. Seek to faithfully minister to those around you by living for me and sacrificially loving others. (Col 1:7)
  • When you're stressed out, you tend to turn to everyone else and ask their opinion. But what you need will only come from me. It is found in quiet contemplation of my faithfulness, and trust in my love and power that will bring you out unscathed. (Isa 30:15)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Suffering(61)

  • It is so easy to get annoyed and aggravated with your brothers and sisters, but you need to work hard to live in peace with each other. When you call someone else selfish, it just means they won't do what you want them to. It will take dying to yourself and your own desires and supposed rights in order to remain in peace with those around you. Who are you really struggling with today? (1The 5:13)
  • 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)
  • I have seen those who have tried to hurt you. There is no need for you to concern yourself with them, for I will repay them for what they have done. Release them into my hands, and return to the business of fulfilling your calling. (2Tim 4:14)
  • Temptation(84)

  • I want you to know every part of me, my power to overcome this world, my love for the Father and for everyone else. But that also includes knowing me in my death to my own desires, my subjecting myself in obedience to my Father in opposition to my natural will. Like me, you will learn obedience through what you suffer. That is also how you will experience the same power that resurrected me from the dead. (Phi 3:10)
  • 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)
  • Diligently guard your heart and mind to protect the Word I have spoken to you, and which has changed your life. The enemy wants to fill you with worldly thoughts and desires to drag you backward into your old life, but my Holy Spirit within you will help you remain in me. What thoughts threaten to make you backslide? (2Tim 1:14)
  • Thanksgiving(27)

  • Pray at all times, not only at appointed, dedicated times, but also throughout the day. Prayer is simply communicating with me, and you can do that through singing, reading, thinking, praying, dancing - anything that brings you closer to me. What do you want to communicate to me right now? (1The 5:17)
  • When you entered into a relationship with me by faith, you received every spiritual blessing I have to offer. I promised never to leave nor forsake you, and to take care of everything which you entrust to me. No one else can ever take away what I have given to you or promised you, nor can they give you more that I can give. For all eternity, I am yours and you are mine, and everything I have I share with you. Decide today to faithfully use the spiritual gifts I have given to you in service to me. (Gal 3:15)
  • The greatest gift you can have on this earth is contentment with what you have. If you are living in a way that pleases me, and you have the necessities of life, that is enough for you. Be grateful for every single thing that I have provided for you, and do not focus on what you do not have, because that will lead you into bitterness, anger, and envy. Has your focus been drifting lately? (1Tim 6:6)
  • Unity(2)

  • 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)

  • I want your love for your brothers and sisters, as well as everyone else, to increase so much that it overflows. I want you to experience the kind of outpouring of love that the father and I feel for you. But this will only happen when you surrender to my spirit within you, and let my love flow through you. Who is the hardest person for you to love? (1The 3:12)
  • When you are overwhelmed, find rest in me, your Lord and your Savior. I alone am your rock and salvation, and you can rest assured that I am more than capable of handling whatever you may face today. When you cling in faith to me as your rock, you will never be shaken, no matter what happens in your life. (Psa 62:1)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • You may or may not believe in prophecies and prophets, but they do exist and they do share what they hear me say to them. Prophetic messages can give you the missing piece of the puzzle in the midst of confusion, and encouragement when you are at the end of your rope. Learn more about the prophetic, and be open to hearing what I say through them. (1The 5:20)
  • By taking on the form of man, and obeying even if it meant giving up my life, I was able to show you how to humble yourself through obedience. Humility before God means acknowledging that He and His will is of great importance because He is our Creator and Sustainer. Humility before people means acknowledging that you are not the most important person, and that others are just as important to God, and should always be treated with value and dignity. (Phi 2:8)
  • Witnessing(85)

  • Never despair regarding your loved ones who have not yet accepted me. There is still time, and I am patient. And when the time comes that they turn to me, I will save them to the uttermost because whoever calls upon my name shall be saved. (Rom 10:13)
  • I may not be standing next to you in bodily form every day, but it doesn't mean that I don't see everything that goes on in your life. I go with you wherever you go, so be careful where you take me. I ransomed you from hell and secured a place for you in heaven, so commit yourself to living a life that expresses your salvation through your lifestyle and your words. (Phi 2:12)
  • Unfortunately, many people live as though they were my enemy, opposed to my words and my commands. They live by their own rules, live for themselves and their own desires, and boast about it. But you are not called to live as they do. You are called to be my representative here on earth, showing others "Jesus with skin on." Love those who do not know me, lead them to me, and I will do the rest. (Phi 3:18)
  • Worry(37)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Your flesh will always want whatever it wants, like a toddler. It will never change. There will always be a struggle for it to be satisfied. So you must find ways to be satisfied in Me, at peace because you are filled with Me. Worship me, give thanks to me, soak in my presence - do whatever it takes in the spirit to be filled with me so you do not give in to the cravings of the flesh. (Psa 63:5)
  •
