  • Step 3. We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God. - Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God, this is your spiritual act of worship. (Rom 12:1)
  • Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust. (Steps 4 and 5) (Mat 5:8)
  • Step 5. We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being, the exact nature of our wrongs. - Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. (Jam 5:16)
  • Abandonment(55)

  • I know you wonder what it will be like when I return. I will come down from heaven with a loud command, and you will hear the voice of the Archangel and the trumpet call of God. The dead who believed in me will rise first and we will all be reunited. It will be glorious! (1The 4:16)
  • When you 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)
  • 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)
  • Anger(29)

  • 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)
  • It doesn't matter what is in the heart of man - our Father can use what anyone does to further His plan and bring people into our Kingdom. Even those who stir up trouble can be His tool to chisel away at the rough spots in the lives of believers. We will use every opportunity to add to the kingdom of God and perfect those who are saved, and we will use what the enemy meant for evil and use it for good! Who is it that you have doubted that God could use for His glory? (Phi 1:15)
  • Everyone starts out foolish and disobedient, being deceived and enslaved by their desires and feelings. In the natural, selfish thoughts cause envy and anger which devolve into hatred. I do not expect perfection from you, but I do expect progress in these areas as you learn to listen to, obey and remain in me more continually. (Tit 3:3)
  • Anxiety(94)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Our Father knows what His children are made of, both literally and figuratively. He formed you from the dust of the ground, as is proven by comparing the elements found in the earth's crust and your physical body. But more crucially, He understands your failings and flaws because I became a man and experienced every temptation and emotion you experience. I am the high priest that truly empathizes with your struggles, so come and share with me your heart's cries, knowing I truly understand. (Psa 103:14)
  • Authority(39)

  • Don't be fooled by what people around you say, and fine sounding arguments. What I have to share is foolishness to those who think they know everything. But I am the source of all truth, because I am the way, the truth, and the life. (Col 2:4)
  • I know it is easy to be tempted to revenge when someone else has wronged you, especially, if you know you were in the right. One of the greatest ways to apply your faith is to respond with a blessing. Moreover, be an example to others who may be with you in times of trouble so that they can glorify the Father in Heaven. Learn to trust me with all your heart, even in trouble. (Rom 12:19)
  • You never have to worry about being bold when you face opposition. I will give you my boldness with which I responded to those who questioned my authority. Plus, the mark of having my Holy Spirit in you is boldness to be a witness. Who can you witness to today? (1The 2:2)
  • Correction(36)

  • 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)
  • Always be careful that you do not fall into hypocrisy. It is easier than you think, because you are not really paying as close attention to your thoughts and actions as you think. You can cause others to fall away from my truth as well, and you will be held accountable for those who were swayed by your actions. So make sure that your walk and your godly talk match at all times. (Gal 2:13)
  • Everyone starts out foolish and disobedient, being deceived and enslaved by their desires and feelings. In the natural, selfish thoughts cause envy and anger which devolve into hatred. I do not expect perfection from you, but I do expect progress in these areas as you learn to listen to, obey and remain in me more continually. (Tit 3:3)
  • Death(16)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • It doesn't matter how dark the night seems, or how deep the valley goes. You don't need to fear because I am always with you. If you wander away too far, I will reach out and bring you back to me. Be comforted in the fact that I am your shepherd that leads you, your protector and provider, and nothing and no one can withstand my power. (Psa 23:4)
  • Depression(49)

  • 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)
  • When you are weak and turn to me for strength, I will fill you with my power. When you are afraid and call to me, I will give you the courage to continue. I am with you wherever you go, always a whisper away, to walk with you through everything. (Jos 1:9)
  • I will reward you according to your faithfulness to me. If you pour yourself out on my behalf, selflessly giving to others as I direct, then I will fill you back up with myself. You will share in the results of all of your hard work for the kingdom, but you will have to wait until heaven to see the full impact you have had. Do not grow weary of doing good things! (2Tim 2:6)
  • Discipline(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)
  • Before you became a child of God through faith in me, you were a slave to a system of laws that could never save you, because you never had the power to fully obey them. But I died to redeem you, to purchase you out of slavery to the law, so that our Father could adopt you as His child and fill you with his power through his Holy Spirit so you can instinctively do what the law requires. Listen closely for his voice today, surrender to his power, and live as I did in this world. (Gal 4:3)
  • I am your great reward. I am the home to which you will come when you finally lay aside this body and the trappings of this world. Press on, keep moving forward, despite the resistance you experience, until you can wrap your arms around me and claim for yourself the prize for which you have worked so hard - me. (Phi 3:14)
  • Encouragement(80)

  • 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)
  • The enemy wants you to be afraid, but I am always with you by my Spirit. You never have to face or handle anything alone, because the Comforter provides the power and wisdom that you require in any situation. I am your ever present source of help. (Heb 13:6)
  • I want you to acknowledge those who work hard for my kingdom among you. Those who care for you, encourage you, teach you and hold you accountable deserve your highest regard. They are not perfect, but neither are you, so don't judge them for their failures, but praise them for their victories. Who can you praise and encourage today? (1The 5:12)
  • Faith(237)

  • Although you need to live your life and take care of your earthly responsibilities, keep in the forefront of your mind that everything here is just temporary, and that your new, permanent life will begin when I return for you. What has been climbing your priority list and taking precedence over me? (1The 1:10)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Fear(94)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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(9)

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

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • It is possible to continue in sin for so long that you no longer care about it. Such people have consciences that have been seared as with a hot iron. If you continually spurn the leading of the Holy Spirit within you, your heart and your mind will become stubborn and rebellious against me. If there is anything wrong in your life, repent of it now and return to me. (1Tim 4:2)
  • Giving(36)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • While others are busy complaining about what's wrong at work, I want you to stand out from the crowd with a great attitude. Give thanksgiving and praise for what is good, and do not join the throng in bad mouthing. Speaking negatively does not bring me glory, or lead others to me. (Col 3:23)
  • Grief(19)

  • I am near to you when you are broken-hearted. I feel your pain and weep with you. I know how low you feel, and will not leave you without comfort. The Spirit will wrap Himself around you and remind you how much you are loved by me. (Psa 34:18)
  • Although I know you want to be physically in my presence, I have need of you right where you are. I created you for a specific purpose, and until that purpose is completed, you need to stay where I put you. I will lead you and guide you as you remain in me until the day that I bring you home. (Phi 1:23)
  • The more you understand about me and my kingdom, the more hope you will have where others may experience despair. Death for non-believers leads to inconsolable grief. Death for believers is a momentary separation that will end in reunion in the future. Who can you share that hope with today? (1The 4:13)
  • Healing(6)

  • Jonah could not stand the thought of me showing mercy to Israel's enemies, he wanted all of them to perish even though they were warned. I know the hurt your going through because of people in your past, I don't condone their actions, but I don't approve of your Judgements of them either. (Mat 5:44)
  • 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)
  • 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(24)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • I am coming back soon. You will see me in all of my power and strength. Because you have believed in my life, death and resurrection, and you have taken me not only as Savior, but have surrendered your life to me as your Lord, you will come back to live with me in heaven. Think about this, and rejoice over the life we will share together! (1The 1:10)
  • Holiness(120)

  • Pay attention to what I say. There will be terrible times in the last days. People will become more and more self-absorbed, caring less and less about the people around them. They will think that they are being godly, but if their life and actions do not reflect a sincere faith in me and a pure love for me and for others, stay far away from them. (2Tim 3:1)
  • 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)
  • The law can never save anyone. Since you can't live up to it, it can only point out how badly you need to be saved. The same goes for scripture, which teaches you about God's holiness, but also points out how impossible it is for you to be holy apart from God. Our father always intended for you to live in personal relationship with him through faith, never to earn his love by trying to be good. So rest in your faith that my shed blood has made you right with the Father, and that my Holy Spirit within you will empower you to live righteously. (Gal 3:22)
  • Hope(33)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • My promises are only for those who live by their faith in me. If you don't trust in me, in my goodness, faithfulness, loving kindness, mercy and my power, you won't trust in my promises. Not living by faith in what I have said is like refusing to reach out and take a costly gift which I have laid before you. Be like Abraham, and trust that I will keep my promises to you. But that also entails acting upon that assurance that things will happen according to my timing. (Gal 3:16)
  • Humility(13)

  • I know it is easy to be tempted to revenge when someone else has wronged you, especially, if you know you were in the right. One of the greatest ways to apply your faith is to respond with a blessing. Moreover, be an example to others who may be with you in times of trouble so that they can glorify the Father in Heaven. Learn to trust me with all your heart, even in trouble. (Rom 12:19)
  • 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)
  • Jonah could not stand the thought of me showing mercy to Israel's enemies, he wanted all of them to perish even though they were warned. I know the hurt your going through because of people in your past, I don't condone their actions, but I don't approve of your Judgements of them either. (Mat 5:44)
  • Joy(26)

  • You are always in my heart, in my thoughts. I have emotions and feelings just like you, and you cannot fathom the depth of love I have for you, or the joy I feel when you come spend intimate time with me. I am always with you, filling you with my supernatural power which enables you to respond to me in obedience and love. Spend some time with me now. (Phi 1:7)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Judgement(40)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Love(171)

  • 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)
  • When I hear from others about how you put your selfless love into action, it makes me so proud. Your faith in me expressed through your love for my holy people shows everyone that you belong to me and are starting to resemble me. Share my love wherever you go. (Phil 1:5)
  • Because you belong to me and belong to the light, and not to the darkness, do not be like others who walk absent-mindedly through this world. Be awake and sober, always looking for my appearance and ways to share my love with others. Act like the pure and radiant bride that you are to me. How can you prepare yourself for my coming? (1The 5:6)
  • Mercy(14)

  • 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)
  • Contrary to popular belief, our Father is not an angry God waiting to destroy evil doers. He is compassionate, understanding the flaws and failures of men, and gracious, offering His own power to mankind so His followers can obey Him. Unlike man, He is very slow to become angry because he overflows with love for his creation. He longs for everyone to come to Him for salvation and doesn't want anyone to be separated from Him. Think on His loving-kindness toward you and spend time in praise for his mercy in your life. (Psa 103:8)
  • I have always known the worst about you, and yet I still saved you. It has never been about what you have done, but who you give your allegiance to. It is because of my mercy and my love for you that I washed you clean in spiritual rebirth, and made you a new creation through my Holy Spirit. Relax and enjoy a moment in my presence. (Tit 3:5)
  • MY PRIVATE MESSAGES ONLY(0)

    Obedience(406)

  • My people must be devoted - to me and to doing what I deem is good. You are the answer to someone else's urgent need, and I need your heart and spirit to be ready to respond generously to them. If you obey me, your life will produce the fruit of my Spirit in abundance, and you will leave a trail of blessings wherever you go. (Tit 3:14)
  • Our Father's most cherished desire has always been to have a close relationship with his children. He wanted the nation of Israel to come up the mountain and personally get to know him, to be their father. Instead, they just wanted a list of do's and don'ts so they could live their lives apart from him. But that original promise to love and take care of his children still stands for you today. Don't settle for trying to obey his laws; spend time in an intimate relationship with him instead. (Gal 3:17)
  • My church is supposed to act as the body it was created to be, many parts led by one Head. A body protects its members from harm, and bears the excess weight when one member has been hurt. When one person has hardship, the others should share with them practically, and they are right in expecting the same help when they experience hardship. Who in hardship can you share with today? (Phi 4:14)
  • Patience(69)

  • Remember that your life is not your own; you belong to me. It is important that you remain as a part of my body on earth, because my plans for you also affect my plans for others' lives. Trust me, because I know the plans I have for you, and they are to prosper you and those whom you touch on my behalf. (Phi 1:24)
  • People will learn everything they need to know about you by watching you. Your way of life must reflect my purpose for you, your faith in me, your patience with others, your love for me and others, and your willingness to endure hardship for my sake. You are my letter which I have written for all of the world to read. Live for Me. (2Tim 3:10)
  • You know that person who has been getting on your nerves? If you spend some time with me and surrender to my Spirit, my love for that person will flow through you so you can be patient with them. (1Cor 13:4)
  • Peace(36)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Power(85)

  • Being "right" with me can never come through obeying religious laws. If that were true, I would have died for nothing. Right standing with me only comes by entrusting to my care everything that is important to you, including your salvation and the rest of your life. That faith in me allows me to use my supernatural power on your behalf to cleanse you of all unrighteousness and make you holy and pure in our Father's sight. Are you fully trusting in me to take care of everything that matters to you? (Gal 2:21)
  • Be found in me. When you try to find your own way through life, living by your own rules, you get lost. Listening to and obeying me is your only way to be found righteous in me. But when you are found in me, you can be assured that you are in the right place at the right time, filled with the right power to accomplish my will and please me. (Phi 3:9)
  • Beware of people who call themselves Christians but do not love others, cannot forgive, do not have self control, and speak evil of others. They have made up their own definition of godliness, but it has nothing to do with me. True godliness is accompanied by my power to carry out my will and live like me. (2Tim 3:3)
  • Praise and Worship(30)

  • 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)
  • I alone possess immortality and live in unapproachable light. No man has ever seen me in all of my glory. I am all-powerful and worthy of all honor and glory. Take time now to praise me for all that I am! (1Tim 6:16)
  • 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(55)

  • 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)
  • The entire reason that I died for you is so you may live with me forever. At work or in play, awake or asleep, in life or in death, you and I are always together. When you feel alone, call out to me, pray to me, and I will answer you. Do you want to talk with me now? (1The 5:10)
  • I can use all things, good and bad, to bring me glory. I can use the past of a person who did not believe, or who was cruel against believers, to accomplish my purpose. The transformation of a soul from angry and belligerent to loving and submissive is one of my greatest tools for bringing others to me. Do not give up hope for that one person for whom you keep praying. (Gal 1:23)
  • Pride(9)

  • 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)
  • It is tempting to look for acceptance from or agreement with others who are held in high esteem, but such a desire is not from me. If I give you a revelation about myself, that is all you need to know. Do not look for approval from others in regard to what you have learned. Simply live according to the truth, and if need be, I will reveal that truth to others around you as well. (Gal 2:6)
  • 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)

  • Whenever I require you to speak, I will reveal what I want you to say. I want you to be open, if not eager, to share about what I have done in your life. I don't ask you to speak to everyone, just those to whom I direct you. (Col 4:4)
  • 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)
  • Remember that your life is not your own; you belong to me. It is important that you remain as a part of my body on earth, because my plans for you also affect my plans for others' lives. Trust me, because I know the plans I have for you, and they are to prosper you and those whom you touch on my behalf. (Phi 1:24)
  • Rejection(26)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Don't be surprised when people who don't know me don't care for you. But you still need to love them as I love them. I will help you to love them. Just ask me. (1Joh 3:13)
  • Repentance(12)

  • Jonah could not stand the thought of me showing mercy to Israel's enemies, he wanted all of them to perish even though they were warned. I know the hurt your going through because of people in your past, I don't condone their actions, but I don't approve of your Judgements of them either. (Mat 5:44)
  • If someone does not agree with you in regard to my truth, do not try to overpower them by force. You must instruct them gently, and I by my spirit will lead them to repentance, so they can enter into a knowledge of me and my truth. Only then can they come to an understanding of my kingdom. (2Tim 2:25)
  • Nothing you can do with your body can get you into heaven. Salvation from the penalty, power and presence of sin in your life comes only from repenting of your sins, acknowledging that I am the Son of God who paid for your sins with my sacrificial death, as well as surrendering your life and submitting your decisions to me as your Lord. Once you belong to me, "works" will automatically flow out of you by the power of my Spirit. (Gal 2:16)
  • Righteousness(211)

  • 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)
  • The sins of some people are so obvious that it is easy to determine what their judgement will be. But for most, their sins trail behind them, only to be revealed before God during judgement. In either case, your sin will always find you out, regardless of how you try to hide it. Live in a way that brings honor and praise to me always. (1Tim 5:24)
  • All are welcome in to the church, but I have set higher standards for those who oversee the members of my body. I want everyone to be able to serve in some capacity, as no one is without sin, but those who lead must keep themselves pure in their family relationships and in their interaction with the outside world. (1Tim 3:12)
  • Salvation(124)

  • This world is evil. People naturally are selfish and self-protecting, and even creation has been warped since the time of the Fall. But I willingly laid my life down to pay for your sins, and to rescue you from the power of this present evil age. If I had not gone away, the Holy Spirit would not have come to live inside of you, giving you the power to live godly every day. That is the will of our father for your life. (Gal 1:4)
  • 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)
  • You were dead in your sin until I saved you. But when you placed your faith in me, the person who didn't care about pleasing God died, and a new person who longs to please God was born. Show me today that you care about pleasing me. (Col 2:12)
  • 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)
  • When you came to me in faith, you were no longer held accountable to the tyrannical rules of the law. By my indwelling Spirit you are led, moment by moment, according to my instruction about what to do in every situation. So do not go back to trying to figure out what is right and wrong on your own. Instead, show that you love me with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and show that you love those around you as you want me to love you. (Gal 4:12)
  • I know it is easy to be tempted to revenge when someone else has wronged you, especially, if you know you were in the right. One of the greatest ways to apply your faith is to respond with a blessing. Moreover, be an example to others who may be with you in times of trouble so that they can glorify the Father in Heaven. Learn to trust me with all your heart, even in trouble. (Rom 12:19)
  • Servanthood(26)

  • 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)
  • 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 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(193)

  • 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)
  • Don't be surprised when evil people around you seem to go from bad to worse. Those who turn away from me get further and further away with every wrong thought and action. They do not want to know me, the Truth, and would rather believe the lies they have created. You must leave them to me, for you can do nothing but pray for them. (2Tim 3:13)
  • I may not be standing next to you in bodily form every day, but it doesn't mean that I don't see everything that goes on in your life. I go with you wherever you go, so be careful where you take me. I ransomed you from hell and secured a place for you in heaven, so commit yourself to living a life that expresses your salvation through your lifestyle and your words. (Phi 2:12)
  • Strength(47)

  • When you're stressed out, you tend to turn to everyone else and ask their opinion. But what you need will only come from me. It is found in quiet contemplation of my faithfulness, and trust in my love and power that will bring you out unscathed. (Isa 30:15)
  • My supernatural, divine power is always with you. It gives you the ability to respond to me in obedience in situations where your mind and body fail you. Utilize that gift of grace to live holy and righteously, to bring others into the kingdom, and to love others as I love you. How can you use my grace today? (1The 5:28)
  • Our father is completely able to complete the work he has begun in you. He wouldn't have called you according to his purpose if he wasn't faithful to equip you for that purpose. Surrender to his will and his training methods, and he will accomplish great and mighty things for the kingdom through you. What can you surrender to him right now? (1The 5:24)
  • 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)
  • I knew you while you were yet in your mother's womb. I fashioned and formed you for the purpose for which you were born. I have set you apart from this world and from others that you might fulfill your calling and be dedicated to me. And I will empower you by my Holy Spirit to complete every good work I have assigned to you. Your surrender to me and my will brings me great pleasure. (Gal 1:15)
  • 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)
  • Suffering(60)

  • Even when it seems like there is more going on than you can handle, I will always either give you the strength to deal with it, or make a way out of it. Just hold on, and trust me to bring you through it. (1Cor 10:13)
  • Stand firm and hold fast to the teachings I have shared with you, whether through the scriptures in the Bible, or the whispering of the Holy Spirit directly to you. Life in this world can become so confusing, because everyone has an opinion and something to say. But you must always place my word above every other conversation, and compare everything to my truth. (2The 2:15)
  • Although I am merciful, wrongdoers will always have to pay for their actions. There is an effect to everything that you do. If the ripple from your actions harms someone else, you will be held accountable for it. (Col 3:25)
  • Temptation(84)

  • 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)
  • I have called you to be pure and holy, in such a way that everyone can see how different you are from the rest of the ungodly world. Purity and holiness are not only internal qualities, but are expressed in your actions and your words. In what areas are you struggling with purity? (1The 4:7)
  • 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)
  • Thanksgiving(27)

  • The greatest gift you can have on this earth is contentment with what you have. If you are living in a way that pleases me, and you have the necessities of life, that is enough for you. Be grateful for every single thing that I have provided for you, and do not focus on what you do not have, because that will lead you into bitterness, anger, and envy. Has your focus been drifting lately? (1Tim 6:6)
  • 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)
  • You always have a choice - you can listen to the evil reports of the world and the enemy, or believe the good report of the Father. Open gratitude for all that He has done for you makes you stand out as a blameless and pure Child of God among a godless, warped and crooked generation. Today, SHINE for me, live your life so obviously for me that everyone will see your good works and praise your Father in heaven. (Phi 2:15)
  • Unity(2)

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

  • Don't be unsettled by the trials you are facing. I have told you that those who believe in and belong to me are destined for struggles. But remember that I have overcome the world, so you can overcome it as well through Me. What struggle is the most pressing right now? (1The 3:3)
  • Most arguments are stupid and futile. Don't waste your time with them. If someone is open to seeing the truth, then my Spirit will convince them of it - without your help. All you need to do is live in obedience to my Spirit, and I will do the rest. (Tit 3:9)
  • I love how much we are starting to look alike. You are becoming the express image of me in your world just like I was the express image of our Father in my world. (1Joh 4:17)
  • Wisdom(71)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • You know, you don't always have to prove that you are right. It causes foolish and stupid arguments. Let it be enough that you believe you know the truth, but do not try to force someone else to agree with you. Only those born-again can understand my words. (2Tim 2:23)
  • Witnessing(85)

  • When you are sharing about me to others, and they are not interested, they are not rejecting you. They are rejecting me instead. So do not take it personally, but continue to share my word and the truth of my Gospel wherever you go. Who can you share with today? (1The 4:8)
  • Oh, how much joy you will experience in the presence of our father because of those you have turned toward him. Those at one time destined for eternal separation from God will dance before you in his presence, and you will see the difference that your faithfulness and love has made in the lives of others. Imagine it now. (1The 3:9)
  • You never have to worry about being bold when you face opposition. I will give you my boldness with which I responded to those who questioned my authority. Plus, the mark of having my Holy Spirit in you is boldness to be a witness. Who can you witness to today? (1The 2:2)
  • Worry(37)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  •
