  • Step 8. We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all. - Do to others as you would have them do to you. (Luk 6:31)
  • Step 11. We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of his will for us and the power to carry that out. - Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly. (Col 3:16)
  • 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)
  • Abandonment(56)

  • 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 live for me, my Holy Spirit fills you to overflowing, and you are saturated in my presence. When your life ends, you will be in my presence throughout all eternity. Since you belong to me, whether you live or die, we will be together forever - I will never leave you nor forsake you. (Phi 1:21)
  • 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)
  • Anger(30)

  • 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)
  • Be very afraid of sliding into hatred. No one who hates truly has my life inside of them. Remain in my love. (1Joh 3:15)
  • 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)

  • 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)
  • I know you don't understand it all, but you don't have to. I know what's best for you. Just turn it all over to Me. (Pro 3:5)
  • Every thing that happens in your life, the good as well as the bad, helps to fashion you into my image. Those who love you, who teach, disciple and even rebuke you, are aching to see my characteristics and gifts evident and active in your life. Surrender to me so that I may work in you, even at times when you are in pain and do not understand, because the end result is that you will be just like me. (Gal 4:19)
  • Authority(39)

  • 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 know that there is no one without sin on earth, but whoever desires to be an overseer of their brothers and sisters must be held to a higher standard. Their conduct is to be above reproach in their family matters as well as in public life. Are you living your life in such a way that, should you be called to do so, you could fill the position of an overseer? (1Tim 3:1)
  • 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)

  • Don't go back to checklists, trying to do things that you think will earn favor with us. You inherited all of the Father's favor when you placed your faith in me. Don't let legalism and pressure to follow men's rules pull you away from a life lived in pure faith in me, empowered by my grace, and led by my Spirit indwelling you. Listen for my words, and I will tell you what is right. (Gal 5:2)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Death(16)

  • There is no reason to fear, because I have overcome your greatest worries. I have even destroyed the power of death and have brought to you my eternal life. When you need wisdom, I will shine upon you the light of my words of truth. This is my promise to you today and every day. (2Tim 1:10)
  • 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)
  • You strive so hard to be known and remembered in this world. However, once you are gone, you will likely be cherished only in the hearts of those you have loved and who have loved you. In the face of eternity, the only things that will count are what you did for me out of my agape love for others. Spend your life so loving me that you will naturally love others and draw them to me. Make an eternal difference by living in such a way that others want to give themselves to me. (Psa 103:15)
  • Depression(50)

  • It is possible for you to rejoice even when you are suffering, because you are sharing in my suffering. Suffering for the sake of my body, my church, brings glory to me, because you are suffering just as I did for you. (Col 1:24)
  • The Father ordained that everyone that He brings to Me should remain with me forever. No one will be lost that has placed their faith and trust in me as Lord and Savior. I will raise up all who belong to me in the last day, and carry them away to live with me in my kingdom. Then we will never again be apart, but remain together throughout eternity. (Joh 6:39)
  • 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)
  • Discipline(55)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • I long to encourage your heart and strengthen you in every good deed you do and every virtuous word you say. It is my power that runs through you and gives you the ability to respond to me in obedience. How can you use my power to glorify me today? (2The 2:17)
  • Be very very careful about people who claim to be Christians, but bring destruction wherever they go. Brothers and sisters should be encouraging and building each other up and not tearing each other down. You can witness to and teach these people, but do not become close friends with them, because they will only bring you down. (2The 3:6)
  • Faith(238)

  • 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)
  • When you doubt my presence in your life, or that I exist, search within yourself and let my spirit comfort you. If my spirit lives in you, then you live in me and my father. (1Joh 4:13)
  • Set an example for all of the other believers in your speech, in your conduct, in the way you love, in your trust in me, and in your purity of lifestyle. Don't give anyone a reason to speak evil about you. Choose your actions carefully and protect your faith diligently. (1Tim 4:12)
  • Fear(95)

  • If someone refuses to hear my words when they are spoken by someone else, they are not rejecting the person who shares my word, but rejecting me. So be bold and courageous in your witness, and tell the world about me. Who can you reach out to today? (1The 4:8)
  • There is never any reason to truly be afraid, because I am always with you. When you have me, you have more than enough to handle any situation. I am your God, and I will fulfill my promise to strengthen, help and uphold you. (Isa 41:10)
  • Whenever you talk to people who don't know me, pay close attention to how my spirit leads you. Remember that I have been trying to reach this person, and connect them with our father. I will open the door for you to share about me if they are ready to hear it. (Col 4:5)
  • 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)

  • It is important to me that women dress modestly, not suggestively or inappropriately. Women should always dress to please me, not to attract sexual attention to themselves. I will bring them the right person at the right time, so they do not have to draw people with their looks. (1Tim 2:9)
  • What makes a woman beautiful is her continued faith in me, expressed in her love for others, and a life marked with holiness. She is radiant in her righteousness, fit to be my bride. Strive for this internal beauty that will last forever. (1Tim 2:15)
  • I can't wait until I can hold you in my arms and embrace you. You are my beloved one, my sister and my love. (Son 2:6)
  • Forgiveness(26)

  • Our Father has rescued you from darkness and brought you into my kingdom, the kingdom of the son he loves. Remember the place from which he rescued you, and the price I paid to ransom you. That is how much we love you. (Col 1:13)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Giving(36)

  • I have always sought to please our father and confess him before the world. Imitate me in this way, living as I did while walking on the earth. As a child mimics his parent or older sibling, mimic my dedication to our father, my continual communication with and praise for him. In what areas of your life do you need to act more like me? (1Tim 6:13)
  • 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)
  • Always remember that I came to earth in the flesh, was testified about by the Holy Spirit, seen by angels, and have been preached among the Nations. I have been believed on in the world, and I was taken up in glory. I am your God and King, the lion and the lamb, the Lord of Glory. Worship me today. (1Tim 3:16)
  • 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)
  • 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 times are uncertain and often frightening. So encourage one another with the truth not only about life, but about death. It is a temporary separation from loved ones, and a permanent reunion with me. There is no reason to be afraid. (1The 4:18)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Heaven(25)

  • I have bought you back from the enemy, who held you prisoner due to your sin debt. I redeemed you with my blood so you could be with the Father and I forever, starting the moment you accepted our gift of salvation. Even when you don't live for us as you should, we pour out love and compassion on you without measure, reminding you that you belong to us, and were bought with a great price. Take time today to remember my sacrifice and revel in our love for you. (Psa 103:4)
  • Since I have rescued you from the darkness and death of this world so you can live with me forever in heaven, set your desires on things that please me. See me seated at the right hand of our father, loving, empowering and watching over you. Let everything you think, feel and do be a reflection of your love for me. (Col 3:1)
  • 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)
  • Holiness(120)

  • Faithfulness is important not only in your relationship with me, but also with others, including those you work with. Integrity, always being trustworthy with everyone, represents me well, because I am faithful and true. Your actions must match my teachings if you claim to belong to me. (Tit 2:10)
  • 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)
  • The more time you spend in intimate communion with me, the more completely you will understand me and my desires for your life. Every day offers you many "good" opportunities, but I want you to have the "best" which I have planned for you. Listen for my voice and choose what I would choose for you, that you may stand pure and blameless before me on the day I return for you. What "good" thing is drawing you away from my "best" for you? (Phi 1:10)
  • Hope(34)

  • What you see is what you get when you live by sight. But when you live by faith, you get so much more than what you see. You receive my peace, my power, my love, my presence - all of the things that are invisible but eternal. Hope comes when you focus your eyes away from temporary things and onto your future with me forever. (2Cor 4:18)
  • It does not matter who you were before, or how bad you were, or how poorly you treated others. When you come to me, I wipe the slate clean spiritually, and everything becomes new. You become a new creation, in my image and for my pleasure. I can use even your past to bring my will to pass in your life and in the lives of others. Just trust me. (Gal 1:13)
  • 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)
  • Humility(12)

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

  • You 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)
  • I never want you to think that I died to ransom you out of obligation to our Father. I did it because I truly love you. The affection I feel for you makes me long to keep you close to myself and take care of you. Come into my presence now and let me love on you. (Phi 1:8)
  • 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)
  • Judgement(40)

  • 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)
  • As a parent, it is hard to find a balance between firmness and mercy. Correction and discipline are meant to help someone become a more responsible person. However, over-correction can bring discouragement and despair. Focus on the sin while still loving the sinner, just as our father does. (Col 3:21)
  • Our father doesn't judge you the way that people do. They make up rules to make themselves feel like they are better than other people, like what people can eat or touch. But that is not from our father, who is more concerned with you expressing your faith in him through loving him and others. (Col 2:21)
  • Love(170)

  • Don't get all caught up in the rules and regulations like the rest of the world. This is the most important thing: Are you trusting in and obeying me? Are you loving others as I would love them? (1Joh 3:23)
  • Loving anything more than me makes you an idolator. People are tempted to love themselves, money, reputations and material possessions. They believe the lie that they have obtained these things for themselves, instead of thankfully acknowledging me as their provider. Protect yourself from this trap, and protect your love for me above all other things. (2Tim 3:2)
  • Real love, my love, will always cost you something. It will cover over many sins that others do against you. It will absorb the penalty for those sins, instead of making them pay the penalty. Are you struggling with loving someone today? (1Joh 4:10)
  • Mercy(13)

  • I have bought you back from the enemy, who held you prisoner due to your sin debt. I redeemed you with my blood so you could be with the Father and I forever, starting the moment you accepted our gift of salvation. Even when you don't live for us as you should, we pour out love and compassion on you without measure, reminding you that you belong to us, and were bought with a great price. Take time today to remember my sacrifice and revel in our love for you. (Psa 103:4)
  • Our Father is deserving of all of the glory. That means that he deserves to be seen as the greatest, kindest, most loving and merciful, and most powerful and important being that has ever existed. That is why it is so important for you to imitate my way of life, especially how I made sure that everything I did and said was a true representation of what our father would say and do on Earth. How can you glorify God today? (Phi 4:20)
  • 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)
  • MY PRIVATE MESSAGES ONLY(0)

    Obedience(405)

  • The enemy is continually trying to tear apart the body. One way is by bringing up accusations against the leaders in your church. The accusation may come through another brother or sister, or maybe it arises from your own mind, but do not meditate on it, and do not repeat it. If there is any issue, go directly to the person and speak to them about it. Otherwise, treat it like the poison that it is, and avoid contact with it. (1Tim 5:19)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Patience(68)

  • If I ask you to greet all of God's people with a holy kiss, would you do it? Not just some, but all? Would you be willing to let your defenses and guard down long enough to get close to your brothers and sisters? The world will know that you are mine when they see you truly loving them in action and not just in word. I challenge you today to risk getting closer to the members of your family in Christ. (1The 5:26)
  • 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 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)
  • Peace(37)

  • It is impossible to remain in my peace when you are constantly thinking about everything that is wrong. That is why I command you to think on everything that is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, and excellent. These things remind you of my past goodness toward you, so you can trust in my future continued faithfulness towards you. To gain and keep your peace, praise me and pray to me in faith continually. (Phi 4:8)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • Bless me, sing to me, let me hear your voice raised up to the heavens to bring me praise. For I have done great things, not only for others in the past, but for you personally as well. It is by my power that you have been saved. Praise my name! (Psa 98:1)
  • You can trust in the truth of my words because they came to the world with demonstrations of power through my Holy Spirit. The life I led, and how my disciples were transformed is further proof. But what I have done in your life is the most important and convincing argument. (1The 1:5)
  • The Father never meant for you to live by a list of laws that you don't have the power to obey. His choice was to personally instruct and empower you to live for him. But man would rather try to earn salvation by following laws in their own strength. So God left those laws in place to show men how unrighteous they would remain without him, until I came to remind the world that righteousness has always only come through faith. Trust in my Spirit to empower you to fulfill the righteousness of the law and you will never be condemned for failure to obey the letter of every law. (Gal 3:19)
  • Praise and Worship(30)

  • It is easy to get distracted by this world and its activities. You can forget all that the Father and I have done for you in the midst of your busy-ness. However, you need to remind yourself, over and over and over, of how He has blessed you. If you have a roof over your head and food on your table, you have more than most of the people in the world. Remember how your life is filled with benefits from the hand of your Lord. (Psa 103:2)
  • Let me describe to you a woman who brings praise to my name. She is well-known for her good deeds, including bringing up children, showing hospitality to others, and serving those in need. She devotes herself to listening for my direction and instructions on who to help and how to help those who cannot help themselves. This is how she shows her dedication to and love for me. (1Tim 5:10)
  • The world and everything in it is the rightful dominion of our Father. Every created thing belongs to Him and was meant to be an extension of his loving kindness and his power. All the works of his hand should rise up and praise Him for He is worthy of all honor and fame. Praise Him with everything that is within you, regardless of your feelings or thoughts, because you belong to Him, and He loves you with an everlasting love. (Psa 103:22)
  • Prayer(54)

  • It is so easy to get distracted by things that don't go your way, but that leads to grumbling and complaining which does NOTHING to glorify our good Father. The rain falls on the just and the unjust alike, but only those who have entrusted themselves to the care of the Father can be sure that every obstacle and hindrance can be used to make you more like me. Choose praise and prayer over grumbling and complaining every time. (Phi 2:14)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Pride(8)

  • Although you carry with you my authority everywhere you go, I do not want you to be puffed up with pride. I don't want you acting like you are better than anyone else, or more mature. Instead become as a young child, accepting others as greater than yourself, and loving them. Is there any attitude for which you need to repent? (1The 2:7)
  • There are those who oppose and ridicule the truth of my word. Their minds are depraved, and they reject knowledge of me. But it is not long before they expose themselves for the foolish people they are. Let me deal with them, and do not try to change their mind. Stay far away from them. (2Tim 3:9)
  • You do not need praise from anyone else, only from me. Even though you carry my authority wherever you go, you do not need other people to recognize that authority. Rarely did I exert my authority over others, but always served. With whom are you tempted to display your authority? (1The 2:6)
  • Purpose(49)

  • If you know that I have spoken to you, then obey me. There are times when you may not be sure, and there is wisdom in taking the counsel of other godly brothers and sisters. But sometimes, no one else will understand what I have spoken to you in secret and assigned to you to accomplish. In those times, trust in me completely, despite what others say. (Gal 1:16)
  • 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)
  • Once you were a slave to sin, but no longer. I redeemed you out of slavery, I bought you back so you could enjoy fellowship with your Father and me. Because you are now His child, you can ask what you want according to His will and be sure that He hears you. Even better, everything that is ours is now yours, waiting to be received and used as your inheritance. Do not try to go it alone in your own strength - ask the Father for the gifts of your inheritance to help you. (Gal 4:7)
  • Rejection(27)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Repentance(11)

  • 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)
  • Everyone wants to be loved and accepted, but it cannot be the focus of your life. The only approval you should strive for is mine. Everyone else's approval is fickle and temporary at best, loving and giving to you only when it best suits them. My approval is eternal, so love and serve me only, and let me bring to you the people who will love and accept you as I do. (Gal 1:10)
  • 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)
  • Righteousness(211)

  • Just remember, there is no place for hatred in you because you belong to me. Stay focused on thoughts that keep you in My light at all times. What good things can you thank me for right now? (1Joh 2:9)
  • 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)
  • When you placed your faith in me, your old nature died, and you were raised up to start a new life, with a newly born spirit and the presence of my Holy Spirit within you. You are clothed with my righteousness, as your sins were paid for by my death. And when the father looks at you, He no longer sees your sins. He sees my redeeming blood and my righteousness. You are clothed in me, so live out your faith so others see me in you as well. (Gal 3:27)
  • Salvation(124)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Our Father has credited you righteousness because of your faith in me. But not until you are in our presence, in your glorified body, will you experience the full fruits of righteousness, meaning the ability to live a sinless life. So when you get discouraged by your inability to be perfectly obedient to me, remember that there is coming a day when you will be just like me. I always remember that your desire is to please me. (Gal 5:5)
  • Security(7)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Servanthood(26)

  • I keep an account of how you utilize the goods and finances I have entrusted to your care. When you use it wisely and according to my will, I will increase my favor in your life. Your stewardship of all that I entrust to you shows that you acknowledge Me as the source of everything you have gained. In the measure that you give to others as I direct, you will receive from me. (Phi 4:17)
  • I created you for a purpose, with my plan in mind. You can ignore and avoid that purpose, but it is STILL your purpose. It is up to you to pursue and dedicate yourself to that purpose - I cannot do that part for you. So press on to take hold of the very thing for which you were made. (Phi 3:12)
  • It is rare when I find believers who honestly and truly look to the interests of others above their own interests. It is so hard to move beyond the human need to put your own needs before that of others. But that is why you need my Spirit in you to accomplish that. In your own flesh, it is futile to try and put others first, but with me, all things are possible. (Phi 2:21)
  • Sin(193)

  • Don't let your anger get the best of you. It will blind you, and you will stumble in the darkness. (1Joh 2:11)
  • I need you to step out in faith in me and share my word with others. You must study it and memorize it in order to be prepared whenever anyone asks you about me. I will lead you regarding when you should give a word of correction or rebuke or encouragement, but listen to my Spirit's instructions, and act with great patience. (2Tim 4:2)
  • There are many things that you can be proud of, but the biggest joy and greatest reward are the people you have led to Our Father by your words, and more importantly, with your life. Those who have come into the kingdom because of you are like beautiful jewels in your crown. Who else do you want to bring to me? (1The 2:19)
  • Strength(47)

  • When you are distressed because of suffering and persecution for my sake, remember your brothers and sisters who are in dire situations for the gospel. Be encouraged by how strongly they stand for me. Take their faith as an example, and become an imitator of them. Who can you pray for right now? (1The 3:7)
  • Be strong in my grace; I will divinely empower you to respond to me in obedience. You cannot follow me in your own strength; you will fail every time. Instead, call upon my name and I will come to you, and give you everything that you need to accomplish my will. (2Tim 2:1)
  • Do not quench the Spirit by trying to ignore him or disobeying him. He is your only hope for living a holy life. He provides you the wisdom and strength you need to get through the day, and will empower you to love others as only I can. What has the Spirit been trying to say to you? (1The 5:19)
  • Submission(30)

  • I saved you by my supernatural power because you placed your faith in me to save you and take care of you. But I know it is very tempting for you to also add your own rules to the mix, saying if you do this, or if you do that, it will make you that much more righteous in my eyes. But it doesn't work that way. Those rules you make for yourself actually pull you away from sincere faith in me. Put your checklist down, and instead, spend time with me to hear what I want for your life. (Gal 2:18)
  • 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)
  • If you know that I have spoken to you, then obey me. There are times when you may not be sure, and there is wisdom in taking the counsel of other godly brothers and sisters. But sometimes, no one else will understand what I have spoken to you in secret and assigned to you to accomplish. In those times, trust in me completely, despite what others say. (Gal 1:16)
  • Suffering(61)

  • 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)
  • 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 are distressed because of suffering and persecution for my sake, remember your brothers and sisters who are in dire situations for the gospel. Be encouraged by how strongly they stand for me. Take their faith as an example, and become an imitator of them. Who can you pray for right now? (1The 3:7)
  • Temptation(84)

  • 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 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)
  • I am reminding you again to be obedient to those in authority over you, even if you would do things differently if you were in charge. Always be ready to actively perform good works for them, as well as respond to things with which you disagree with a good attitude and your best abilities. Remember, you are my ambassador and represent me at all times. (Tit 3:1)
  • Thanksgiving(27)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Always remember that I came to earth in the flesh, was testified about by the Holy Spirit, seen by angels, and have been preached among the Nations. I have been believed on in the world, and I was taken up in glory. I am your God and King, the lion and the lamb, the Lord of Glory. Worship me today. (1Tim 3:16)
  • Unity(2)

  • Discord in the body of Christ can undermine what I want to accomplish. If you know that there are members who have problems with each other, and those issues will affect the unity of the body, then leadership needs to address those issues. You are all called to the ministry of reconciliation, which includes bringing people together on account of the Gospel. They don't need to agree on everything, only agree to set aside their differences in order to serve me better. (Phi 4:3)
  • You think that small disagreements between you and your brothers and sisters don't really mean much, but they create discord and disunity in my body. Unity doesn't always mean sharing the same ideas, but allowing others to have differing opinions. Sometimes you simply need to agree to disagree in order to keep the peace in the body. (Phi 4:2)
  • Victory(49)

  • You may have many struggles in this world, but you have overcome the world by my spirit that lives within you. I overcame the world, and gave you the same authority over the enemy that I have. Use that authority! (1Joh 4:4)
  • Because I have brought you out of eternal death and into everlasting life, I have given you the ability to live, not according to the flesh, but according to my spirit. Every time you obey my spirit, which I put in you, you put to death the things your body and mind crave apart from me. (Col 2:11)
  • It is so tempting to gain things. But your only purpose is to gain me. Gain intimacy with me, make knowing me through everyday experiences the most important goal of your life. Everything else is worthless garbage in comparison. In this way, every day can hold great victories, because knowing me more does not depend on anyone else's participation, and turns every event, good or bad, into another opportunity to gain more of me. (Phi 3:8)
  • Wisdom(71)

  • 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)
  • Be careful to protect the words I have given you, and to continually place your faith in them. Do not listen to myths or regulations that other people want to place on you. These are a rejection of my truth, so do not trust in anything other than my word. (Tit 1:14)
  • 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)

  • 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)
  • I have chosen you to minister to very specific people. You don't need to know ahead of time who they are, you just need to listen to my still small voice and follow my lead. Do not fall into the trap of feeling inferior because you are not reaching some people the way others do - my plan for your life is distinct from theirs. Just be faithful to do as I instruct you. (Gal 2:7)
  • Without the Holy Spirit's fruit of self-control, you cannot expect to be a good example of and witness to how I can transform a life. Always be alert to the people around you, and how your actions will affect them, as well as how it will reflect on me. Say what you mean and follow through on your promises, displaying integrity in everything you do. (Tit 2:7)
  • Worry(37)

  • No matter what you are going through, I will rescue you from every situation. It may not be in your timing nor in the way you expected, but I will find a way for you, and give you the strength to bear it while you remain under the weight of it. Trust Me. (2Tim 3:11)
  • I am breathing peace upon you. I give my peace to you so you will have it with you in every situation, dealing with every person. It is always available for you through my Holy Spirit - just surrender to Him, and trust the Father and I to take care of what is important to you. Do not let your heart be troubled over anything - trust in me and be surrounded with my peace. (Joh 14:27)
  • It doesn't matter what you see on the outside of yourself - your body was never meant to last forever. It is of use when you utilize it on behalf of me, being my hands and feet, but eventually it will wear out. So focus on the part of you that will live eternally - your spirit and soul - which is continuously regenerated into my likeness day by day. (2Cor 4:16)
  •
