12 Step(19) If you check 12 Step, you will get an additional message with one of the 12 steps first thing every morning.

  • Step 10. We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it. - So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall! (1Cor 10:12)
  • 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)
  • Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ's care and control. (Step 3) (Mat 5:5)
  • Abandonment(56)

  • Don't be afraid of suffering. It is what perfected my obedience when I walked on the earth, and will perfect you as well. But you will never be comfortless at those times; I will be with you always, my Spirit filling you with my peace and wrapping His arms around you with my love. You are never alone. (2Tim 2:3)
  • Don't be surprised that people who don't believe in me don't understand you, and can't understand me. Whoever does not belong to our Father cannot understand what he says, nor what you say about him. (1Joh 4:6)
  • Spending eternity with me begins the moment you place your trust in me, and I place my spirit in you. My Holy Spirit connects us at all times, and we will never be apart from here on out. (1Joh 5:10)
  • Anger(29)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Anxiety(94)

  • 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 want my Spirit to rain on you and saturate you through and through. Be still in my presence and let me pour my Spirit out upon you generously. In my Spirit is my life, my power, my love. Stop struggling and just soak. (Tit 3:6)
  • I saved you with my own blood, buying you out of your slavery to sin, so that you could be adopted by our Father. That is why your heart yearns for Him, and your spirit cries out to Him, "Daddy." Don't you understand that your deepest need is really to be close to Him, to experience His protection as well as His everlasting love? Indulge yourself and give in to your need - spend time in intimate communion with Him now. (Gal 4:5)
  • Authority(38)

  • I am the express image of our invisible father, and he has placed me over all the earth, and all creation. He gave me that authority as his first born, but you have been adopted as his child as well, and also inherit this authority. (Col 1:15)
  • Treat with respect those who are in authority over you, especially your employers. Do everything in your power to please them by giving them your very best. Watch your speech, and do not complain about them to others. This is the way to please and honor me at work and in church. (Tit 2:9)
  • I have disarmed the enemy, the rulers and authorities of darkness. I have thoroughly triumphed over them, and I empower you to triumph over them as well. Do not cower, but use my authority and power to stand against Satan. (Col 2:15)
  • Correction(35)

  • Hold firmly to the truth you have learned of me through my Holy Spirit. Every day, you are bombarded by falsehoods, misrepresentations, and even communications spawned by sheer evil. If you meditate on these things, your gaze will be focused on the world and your attitude will become increasingly fleshly. Do not lose all of the ground you have gained through your hard labor in Christ by letting the truth slip from your grasp. Hold on! (Phi 2:16)
  • For those who belong to me, there is no place for criticism of others in your thoughts or your speech. Be committed to love one another and be considerate of each others' feelings. Rid yourself of thoughts and attitudes that rob you and others of peace, and be gentle toward people. But you can't do this in your own strength - you will have to surrender to my Spirit in order for this to happen. (Tit 3:2)
  • The enemy and the world will always try to separate you from the Father and I. The people of the world cannot stand to see you living in the light, and will do everything they can to drag you down to the darkness in which they live. The light shines on their evil deeds, and they hate it. And the enemy always wants you to doubt my goodness so you will lose your faith in me. Cling to me at all times - do not let yourself be isolated from me or your brothers and sisters, because that will leave you vulnerable to attack. (Gal 4:17)
  • Death(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)
  • 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)
  • When I come in the clouds and return for you, I will bring with me those who have fallen asleep in death who believed in me. It will be the greatest reunion of all time. Death has no sting for believers, for they are, at most, temporarily separated from each other. Who do you look forward to seeing? (1The 4:14)
  • Depression(50)

  • This world brings many things that bring fear. But even if the worst should happen, even if you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I am always with you, and I will always come through for you. I will always take care of you. (Psa 23:4)
  • When you wonder whether or not your life will ever be changed, if you will ever be changed into my image, remember this. Our Father is using in your life the same power that He used to raise Me from the dead. This resurrection power is what will allow the old you to die off and the new you to be reborn into my likeness. Trust Him to complete what He has begun. (Eph 1:19)
  • 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)
  • Discipline(54)

  • 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)
  • Your faith in the Father and I has made you righteous. Surrendering to the leading of the Holy Spirit living within you enables you to instinctively know what is right and act accordingly. You don't need to worry about breaking God's law when you desire to love God and love others, because love does no harm to anyone and fulfills all of the law. Live by faith, in close communion to God, and you will find yourself living in this world as I did. (Gal 3:25)
  • I am calling you to rejoice in me always. Do not allow the changing and sometimes upsetting circumstances around you to rob you of your joy. When you are upset, you can be quick tempered, and negative. But I need you to keep your faith in me, and to act in love, patience and gentleness despite what is going on around you. What situation is tempting you to not act in love? (Phi 4:5)
  • Encouragement(77)

  • Because you are one with me, I will encourage you with my purpose for you. I will comfort you with my love for you. I will fill you with my strength through my Holy Spirit. I will offer you tenderness and compassion. But I do it so you will freely give to others what I have given to you for free. With whom can you share my encouragement, comfort, tenderness and compassion? (Phi 2:1)
  • When you are in a tough situation, your faithfulness to me in words and actions will inspire other brothers and sisters to be bold in their faith. You stir up confidence in other believers, not just when you do what is right, but also when you hold yourself back from doing the wrong thing. That is why I need you to endure hardship like it is basic training, learning how to replace your allegiance to your own pleasure with obedience to my words. In which situation do you need help remaining faithful? (Phi 1:14)
  • When you feel like you are sinking, I will pull you up. I will draw you out of the deep waters of hurt and depression and fear and pull you to myself. You are mine, and I will always protect you. Just call out my name. (Psa 18:16)
  • Faith(238)

  • 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)
  • Keep your eyes focused on me. You were not made to waste your energy on temporary things, but to spend eternity with me. What is trying to distract you? (1Joh 1:2)
  • Living by rules and regulations is the opposite of living by faith in me. You can live by a set of laws without ever knowing or having a relationship with me. Whatever you choose to live by is what you will be judged against. If you want to live by rules, you'll have to keep them perfectly. It is much simpler to live by my daily words to you, because I will also give you the supernatural power (grace) to accomplish what I instruct you to do. (Gal 3:12)
  • Fear(94)

  • When you feel unprotected and vulnerable, remember how I long to gather you to myself and protect you from what you fear. You will always find a safe place when you run to me, for I will always come when you call. I am your fortress, your deliverer, and your shield from the enemy. Come to me and let me give you rest. (Psa 91:4)
  • When I come in the clouds and return for you, I will bring with me those who have fallen asleep in death who believed in me. It will be the greatest reunion of all time. Death has no sting for believers, for they are, at most, temporarily separated from each other. Who do you look forward to seeing? (1The 4:14)
  • You should speak with the assurance and boldness of those approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. You are not to try and please people, only me, who tests your heart. Pray for the words to say, and listen for my leading regarding when to talk. (1The 2:4)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Wives should be submissive to their husbands. This does not mean being a doormat, or allowing ungodly things to go on in the home. It means trusting me with all of their concerns instead of trusting in their husband, and resting on the fact that I will handle them as I see fit. (Col 3:18)
  • Forgiveness(25)

  • 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)
  • What I say is true, regardless of how you feel. So even when your heart condemns you, my word is greater than your heart. If I have forgiven you, you are forgiven. (1Joh 3:20)
  • 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)
  • Giving(36)

  • Consistently and purposely continue in prayer to our father in my name. Do it at a time when you can focus and be alert. Make sure your prayers are filled with thanksgiving as well as requests for your needs. (Col 4:2)
  • When you pray for others, our father is so pleased with you. It is the same way when you offer up thanksgiving to God. It is like a sweet smelling savor, a fragrant perfume that rises before him and makes him glad. For what can you offer thanksgiving to Him right now? (1Tim 2:3)
  • I have spoken to you about your future, giving you hopes and dreams so that you can recall them when you're struggling and fight the battle well. Just because you are not seeing the fulfillment of those dreams right now doesn't mean they will not come to pass. Sometimes my answer is not yes or no, but not now. Trust me with your future. (1Tim 1:18)
  • Grief(20)

  • 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)
  • This world brings many things that bring fear. But even if the worst should happen, even if you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I am always with you, and I will always come through for you. I will always take care of you. (Psa 23:4)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Heaven(25)

  • Everything in heaven and on earth, seen and unseen, was created by my father and I. All of the rulers and people with power and authority have been placed there by my father, to accomplish His will. You can trust that he knows what he is doing in your life. (Col 1:16)
  • 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)
  • Now that you belong to me, you live by an entirely new and different code - the code of self-sacrificial love. My father does not judge you by rules and regulations, but by whether or not you obey what I tell you, either through the word or personally through prayer. Beware of people who say you have to follow their rules to get to heaven - follow only me! (Col 2:20)
  • Holiness(120)

  • It is important to me how you conduct yourself within God's household, the church of the living God. I don't only mean in the building where you meet with others, but within the family of brothers and sisters. The world will know that you are my disciples by the love that you have for one another, so take great care to treat everyone as if they were me. (1Tim 3:15)
  • You are no longer in your core the person you used to be. But you have old habits and thought patterns that are not appropriate for a child of God. Your new self, that desires to please me, will only surface when you are surrendered to my spirit, otherwise you will continue to act like you were never saved. (Col 3:7)
  • If you believe nothing else, always remember that I came into the world to save sinners. It doesn't matter how bad you were, or are, because sin is why I came to earth. But now that I have come, and you have received me, sin has no place in your life. Remember where you came from, and all I have done for you, and live for me today. (1Tim 1:15)
  • Hope(33)

  • No man knows when I will come to you. It is for the father to choose the day and time. But I will come, and for those who do not know me, destruction will come suddenly. However, for those who belong to me, they will experience everlasting life, joy and peace. Who do you wish you could share my life with? (1The 5:1)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Humility(11)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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 at all times, in every situation, because I am Lord over everything, and I will have the final say. Your joy comes from deep within you, from my Spirit who lives in you, and doesn't depend on outside circumstances. So rejoice that I am with you always, even throughout eternity. What can you rejoice over now? (1The 5:16)
  • I 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)
  • Judgement(39)

  • 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)
  • When I look at you and the people around you, I don't see black, white, Indian, Hispanic, or any other type of nationality. I don't even see religious differences. I only see individuals I have died for so they can live with me forever. That's how I want you to see others. (Col 3:11)
  • When you repented and asked for forgiveness, it was granted to you. That matter was settled, the debt owed was paid, the file on the judge's desk was marked 'NOT GUILTY', sealed and filed away forever. It was removed from your record, just as if it never happened. The judge will not take that file back out to review it ever again. That's how far your sin was separated from you, so leave it and move on. (Psa 103:12)
  • Love(170)

  • 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)
  • I want you to be one with me, so your joy may be complete and full. But you know relationships take work, especially our relationship. I want some one on one time with you, and you need it as well. (1Joh 1:3)
  • I saved you with my own blood, buying you out of your slavery to sin, so that you could be adopted by our Father. That is why your heart yearns for Him, and your spirit cries out to Him, "Daddy." Don't you understand that your deepest need is really to be close to Him, to experience His protection as well as His everlasting love? Indulge yourself and give in to your need - spend time in intimate communion with Him now. (Gal 4:5)
  • Mercy(13)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Reminders of your failures only come from 2 places - the enemy of your soul and your own heart. The Holy Spirit will convict you of sin, but never try to make you feel worthless. He expresses my love for you while reminding you what I have said about sin and righteousness. Our Father will not continue to accuse you of something for which you have repented - He is not angry about what has been forgiven. Trust in His never ending love for you, and the permanence of the salvation I have purchased for you with my own blood. (Psa 103:9)
  • MY PRIVATE MESSAGES ONLY(0)

    Obedience(404)

  • I am overwhelmingly pleased when you read my word and receive it not as a human word, but the direct word of God. My word is at work in you, transforming you into my image, when you mix faith with the words you read and hear. Let me hear you speak my words back to me now in faith. (1The 2:13)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Patience(67)

  • Be an encourager! Comfort and urge everyone around you to live lives worthy of Our Father, who called them into his kingdom, and destined them for glory. Treat them as you would want to be treated. Who can you encourage today? (1The 2:12)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Peace(36)

  • Today, I will fill you with my supernatural power so you may obey me. I will show you mercy, and expect you to show mercy toward others in the same way. And I will fill you with peace that passes all understanding. Everyday, this is my promise to you. (2Tim 1:2)
  • When you are upset, the only way to find peace is to hand all of your concerns over to the Father to handle as He sees fit. Increase your faith by reminding yourself of all of the times He has been faithful to take care of you in the past, and think on every good thing He has given to you. Then, my peace will come over you, the peace that cannot be obtained through reasoning or rationalization, but only through faith in the Father's goodness and power. (Phi 4:6)
  • No man knows when I will come to you. It is for the father to choose the day and time. But I will come, and for those who do not know me, destruction will come suddenly. However, for those who belong to me, they will experience everlasting life, joy and peace. Who do you wish you could share my life with? (1The 5:1)
  • Power(85)

  • The universe and every person and created thing in it is held together by my power and life. I am before all things, and given authority over all things. Because you belong to me, I share that authority with you. (Col 1:17)
  • Are you feeling like you are going around in circles, working on the same lessons over and over again? That happens when you slowly slip from moment by moment communion with and trust in me to trying to figure out and power through everything going on in your life in your own puny strength. Return to me in faith, and everything will eventually fall into place according to my will and original plan. What area of your life has become futile? (Gal 3:4)
  • When in a position of power, it is easy to fall into the trap of taking advantage of others. But I demand that you be fair and good, so that those who work under you see me in you, and praise their father in Heaven for you. (Col 4:1)
  • Praise and Worship(30)

  • Our Father is worthy of your time being spent thinking and talking about how awesome He is. Let yourself be truly amazed at how massive and powerful He is, so it increases your faith in Him. The world has no problem speaking against His existence, or denying His power. So do not be ashamed to publicly extol His goodness and loving-kindness, faithfulness and mercy through your words, and more importantly, your actions. (Psa 103:1)
  • It is 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)
  • Worrying doesn't accomplish anything. If you are going to set your mind on something, or use your mouth to say something, let it be in doing something that can change the situation. Remind yourself of everything that I have given to you for which you can be thankful, and in that attitude of gratefulness, come to me and ask me for whatever you need. This is the only way to gain peace in the midst of anxiety. (Phi 4:6)
  • Prayer(53)

  • Every day belongs to the Lord, not just celebrated holy days. In every moment, you are to live for me, remembering my sacrificial death and celebrating my resurrection. You don't have to wait for a church to pass out bread and wine to have communion with me. Through my Holy Spirit within you, unceasingly communicate with me and every day will be a high holy day of the Lord. (Gal 4:10)
  • 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)
  • Your prayers do make a difference! Do not give up now. Your faith combined with the power of my Spirit can move mountains in your life and the lives of others. Join with your brothers and sisters in constant prayer, and watch me trample the darkness by bringing my Kingdom of light here to earth. (Phi 1:19)
  • Pride(8)

  • Although you carry with you my authority everywhere you go, I do not want you to be puffed up with pride. I don't want you acting like you are better than anyone else, or more mature. Instead become as a young child, accepting others as greater than yourself, and loving them. Is there any attitude for which you need to repent? (1The 2:7)
  • I know you could list off the reasons to be proud of yourself, the things you have done right all on your own. But they are nothing to boast about. Recounting to yourself and others your accomplishments is a sign of your own insecurity in me, your thoughts and fears that you are not enough just as you are, and have to keep on bolstering your self-worth through your achievements. All that matters is what I have achieved in and through you by my Spirit. Stop striving and let me be your source of worth today. (Phi 3:4)
  • Beware of people who believe they know everything about me and the father. People who repeatedly talk about themselves and what they know and have done are looking to glorify themselves. Take no notice of what they say - simply pray that they return to me in meekness and humility. (Col 2:18)
  • Purpose(49)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Rejection(27)

  • There will be times when you feel as though everyone has deserted you, and no one came to support you in your time of need. But I command you not to hold this against them. Every person has their own path that they must walk, and although their paths may cross yours for a season, few will remain on the road with you. Let them and the hurt go. (2Tim 4:16)
  • You are just passing through this world. I know it is an extended stay, but you aren't from here and you don't belong here. You are visiting, and will return to your home of origin, heaven, where you have your citizenship. So don't expect much from this temporary location - your rewards are at home, along with your loved ones and the One who made you. Live for me, your Savior, and I will return to take you home with me. (Phi 3:20)
  • When you remember all I have done for you, where I have brought you out from, and how much I love you, it should result in overflowing gratitude. You should also feel compassion for those who are now where you were before you met me. Be patient, kind, and merciful to them as I have been to you. (Col 3:12)
  • Repentance(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)
  • 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)
  • Righteousness(210)

  • It is God's will that you should be sanctified, meaning set apart from the world for his purposes only. That includes avoiding sexual immorality. Even if the world says it is ok, I say it is wrong. Has anyone been tempting you to act in a more worldly manner? (1The 4:3)
  • 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)
  • Remember that you are the only Jesus many people will see, and your actions will show others that you belong to and know me. (1Joh 2:4)
  • Salvation(124)

  • I cannot overemphasize how important it is for you to speak my word to others. It is through the preaching and sharing of my words of life that others will come to the knowledge of me, and place their faith in me. It is not a suggestion, but it is my command that you live your life so that others see me in your actions and hear me in your words. (Tit 1:3)
  • Our father rescued you from your sins, and then called you to live a life separated for and dedicated to him - but not because you earned it. Before time began, he predestined your specific purpose in his plan, and supernaturally empowers you to fulfill it by remaining in submission to me. (2Tim 1:9)
  • Love is what caused my father to offer his only son up so that you might have everlasting life. Love is what caused me to willingly lay down my life for your salvation. All I ask in return is that you love me and love others as I have loved you so that others may come to share in our love. (Joh 3:16)
  • Security(6)

  • Stand firm in me. Everything else around you can be a whirlwind of change. However, I remain the same, I am your rock, steady and secure. I am the only thing you can be sure of. So rest in my promises, and remain firm in your commitment and surrender to me. (Phi 4:1)
  • Our father is a God of kept promises. He is faithful to fulfill his word to those who believe him. His inheritance for his children is every spiritual blessing he has to give, as well as his provision and his protection. You can't earn an inheritance - it rightfully belongs to the offspring. In the same way, you can't earn all he wants to give to you by obeying the law, it is yours simply because you belong to him. Rest in his promises today. (Gal 3:18)
  • When you came to me in faith, you were no longer held accountable to the tyrannical rules of the law. By my indwelling Spirit you are led, moment by moment, according to my instruction about what to do in every situation. So do not go back to trying to figure out what is right and wrong on your own. Instead, show that you love me with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and show that you love those around you as you want me to love you. (Gal 4:12)
  • Servanthood(26)

  • 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)
  • 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 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)
  • Sin(192)

  • 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)
  • Although I have a singular purpose for your life, you were never meant to go it alone. I need you to stand firm in my Holy Spirit alongside of your brothers and sisters in Christ. You need each other as you strive to bring the truth of my gospel to those who do not know me. (Phi 1:27)
  • You must not share in the sins of others, especially to fit in. Men love to make rules for other people. But I did not design you to follow rules. I designed you to follow me. What I want from you is simple, listen and obey. Stop and listen for me now. (1Tim 4:3)
  • Strength(46)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Submission(30)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • You used to be a slave to every urge and thought that came to you, to every spirit of the enemy that would come to distract and confuse you, but not now. Now that you belong to the Father, and His Spirit lives in you, you have the power to resist the devil so he will flee from you. When you feel yourself sliding back into fleshly responses, call out to the Father, pray and surrender to whatever the Spirit says to you. You are no longer your own, because you have been bought with a price. (Gal 4:8)
  • Suffering(60)

  • It 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)
  • 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 the father and I found you, there was nothing in you that justified you being a part of our kingdom. But we made you righteous by my blood sacrifice for your sins, which in turn made you worthy to be adopted as a child of God. And know that, when you suffer for being a Christian, you are proving your worthiness to be called a Christian. Stand firm for me, and I will deal with those that cause you suffering. (2The 1:5)
  • Temptation(83)

  • 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 see your struggles with temptation, but I came to take away your sins - to pay for them and rescue you from them. But no one who belongs to me keeps on sinning purposefully. Keep yourself pure. (1Joh 3:6)
  • Before you placed your faith in me, your spirit was dead and you lived solely by the desires of your flesh. But the moment you trusted in me, our father brought your spirit to life, and placed my spirit within you, and forgave all of your sins. Live by my spirit, and the knowledge that you are completely forgiven. (Col 2:13)
  • Thanksgiving(27)

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

  • The enemy is always on the attack, trying to undo everything the father and I try to accomplish. But I am coming, and will overthrow him and destroy all of his works. You can rejoice in the fact that his time is coming, and his end is near. (2The 2:8)
  • 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)
  • I want you to know that the father and I use your faith and faithfulness as an example to others when they need encouragement. When you live for me through struggles, and trust me while you endure afflictions, and others see your constancy in me, I use the memory of that to help them when they go through their own troubles. Look around you today and see who you are teaching with your faithfulness. (2The 1:4)
  • Wisdom(71)

  • Not everyone shares the same calling. That is why I have widely distributed various spiritual gifts and natural talents, and assigned people to different paths. There are so many people who need to discover who I am, and then be taught about me and trained to be my disciple. Just as a body has multiple essential parts to make it work, so it is in my church. Be faithful to fulfill the calling I have placed on your own life. (Gal 2:9)
  • In order to be a teacher of my word, you must know more than my actual sayings and teachings. You need to understand how a life is transformed by them because you have experienced such a transformation yourself. Beware of people who teach my word, but their life shows that they have not been personally transformed by the truth. (1Tim 1:7)
  • 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)
  • Witnessing(85)

  • 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)
  • No man knows when I will come to you. It is for the father to choose the day and time. But I will come, and for those who do not know me, destruction will come suddenly. However, for those who belong to me, they will experience everlasting life, joy and peace. Who do you wish you could share my life with? (1The 5:1)
  • Worry(37)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Money cannot fill that longing deep within your soul. Material possessions cannot bring you lasting happiness either. That is because the hole you are trying to fill can only contain me, and every attempt to obtain joy and satisfaction apart from me only ends in disappointment and emptiness. Only I will satisfy your deepest needs and desires. (Heb 13:5)
  •
