  • Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ's care and control. (Step 3) (Mat 5:5)
  • Step 9. We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. - Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother, then come and offer your gift. (Mat 5:23)
  • Step 12. Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others, and practice these principles in all our affairs. - Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. (Gal 6:1)
  • Abandonment(55)

  • Because you are now a child of God, we only see you as part of our family. You are not seen in regard to religious creed, sex, race or any other earthly designation. We look at you and recognize the family resemblance - righteous and forgiven, filled with the Holy Spirit. You are one with us, and we are one with you; my shed blood binds us together forever. You can rest secure in your place in our family. (Gal 3:28)
  • Whoever comes to me, I will keep with me forever. I will not cast them away from me. So you are safe with me if you have entrusted yourself to my care. Rest in my faithfulness. (Joh 6:37)
  • 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)
  • Anger(29)

  • Many things can take you by surprise, but don't let them rock your world. Instead, make sure that you do not react, but that you strive to consistently act in love in every circumstance. That is how you live a life worthy of your calling. (Phi 1:27)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Anxiety(94)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Authority(39)

  • 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)
  • I am over everything. My power and authority extend everywhere. My kingdom has come, and my will shall be done on earth as it is in heaven. You are my hands and my feet - stay connected to me as your head, so I may give you instructions regarding what to do and say, and the supernatural power to obey me. (Psa 103:19)
  • 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(36)

  • I will reveal things to you privately, however not everything is to be shared publicly with others. When you are in doubt about whether or not something is from me, then share it in private to a select few who are more mature in their relationship with me, and who walk according to their talk. Take their counsel about whether or not what you believe you have received fits into the entire counsel of God through my Word. If it is confirmed, then share it as I direct you. (Gal 2:2)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Death(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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Depression(49)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Discipline(54)

  • I need you and your brothers and sisters to know me intimately, understand and anticipate my thoughts. I need you to remain in me so I can remain in you, and infuse you with my love for others through my Holy Spirit. You don't need to be in agreement about everything with everyone else in order to share the same loving mindset that I have. Bring me joy by loving one another. (Phi 2:2)
  • Did you know you can always CHOOSE what to THINK about? Can't help hearing those ugly whispers from the world and the devil? Well, you can always choose to think about Truth instead. Maybe it's time to memorize a new verse today. (Col 3:2)
  • One good reason to read my Word every day is to make sure that your thoughts and actions are still in line with the truth of the gospel. After you have hung around others, do they think more highly of Me and our Father? Do they want to know us more, do they want to be around people who know us, and do they want to be a part of our body? Do you remind them of Me, or do you remind them of themselves? Make sure you pay closer attention to that today. (Gal 2:14)
  • Encouragement(80)

  • Honor those in the church who have dedicated themselves to the welfare of the brothers and sisters, especially those who preach and teach. They are my mouth pieces, transferring the word of God from my mind to that of my people. Determine today one way that you can show your appreciation for their work and dedication. (1Tim 5:17)
  • My words are not only for you. Although I try to communicate my personal intentions for you through them, my word was meant to be shared. If I have taught you anything, I don't want you to keep it to yourself. Share it with the rest of the family, because that's how I intend for them to learn and mature. What could you share? (1The 5:27)
  • No matter what happened yesterday, or what bad choices you may make today, tomorrow holds a brand new opportunity to start again and make it about Me. I am the God of second, third and a thousand chances, and I live to be merciful and loving toward you. Do not give up hope. (Lam 3:22)
  • Faith(237)

  • You will play an integral part in building the faith of those whom I will bring to you. You will be a source of hope and joy as you model your trust and belief in me through your outward actions and your words. Trust in me as I put you in situations where I need you to be faithful to your calling and my plan for your life. (Phi 1:25)
  • 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)
  • Today, our father and I want to fill you with all of our power so you may accomplish what we ask of you today. We also want you to be filled with my peace that passes all understanding, which comes from unwavering trust that I will take care of everything that is important to you. We will provide for you everything you need for life and godliness today. (Tit 1:4)
  • Fear(94)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Rejoice! This doesn't mean experiencing feelings of happiness. This means choosing to see the good in every situation, and acknowledging that I can turn every situation around for your good and my glory. What do you need to rejoice about today? (Phi 4:4)
  • 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(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)
  • 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 love you more than you will ever know on earth. But one day, you will come home to me, and you will experience the fullness of my love for you throughout eternity. (Joh 14:2)
  • Forgiveness(26)

  • 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)
  • You have been redeemed, and forgiven of all of your sins, through the blood I shed on the cross. That was a one time payment covering all of your past, present, and future sins. You only need to confess your sins to me and return to me with your whole heart, to be cleansed. (Col 1:14)
  • It doesn't matter what you have done in your past, we see you just as if you had never sinned. My death on the cross paid your penalty so our Father could adopt you and make you our heir to eternal life. We never look back because we choose never to remember your past. We only care about your future with us. (Tit 3:7)
  • Giving(36)

  • When you give to others as I direct, on my behalf, it is a sweet-smelling sacrifice to me. Your offering is pleasing to our father, who remembers your kindness and generosity to his other children. When you are in need, the memory of your faithful giving comes before him, and he will provide for your needs as well. How can you give to someone else in their need today? (Phi 4:18)
  • Remember when your emotions were out of control? Remember when not knowing the future would shake you? And then I came into your life and brought peace. Be thankful everyday for what I have done for you. (Col 3:15)
  • When you face trials and suffering, you have one weapon that no one can take away. It is the fact that you personally know who I am. You have experienced that I am trustworthy and keep my promises, and that I am faithful to take care of you and everything that is important to you. Remind yourself constantly of the ways that I have proved myself to you. (2Tim 1:12)
  • Grief(19)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Heaven(24)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Holiness(120)

  • Your God and your destiny are intertwined. If you acknowledge that I am your God, by humbling yourself before me, trusting and obeying me out of love for me, your destination is heaven. If, however, you are your own god, and you live to fulfill your own desires, trusting only in yourself as your supreme authority, then your destination is hell. Don't let your mind settle on earthly things, but always set your eyes on me, the author and perfecter of your faith. (Phi 3:19)
  • What makes a woman beautiful is her continued faith in me, expressed in her love for others, and a life marked with holiness. She is radiant in her righteousness, fit to be my bride. Strive for this internal beauty that will last forever. (1Tim 2:15)
  • I 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)
  • Hope(33)

  • 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)
  • When you finally accept me as your true provider, realizing that I know your needs and love you enough to meet them, you will be able to be content no matter what circumstances arise. You will not be shaken by sudden changes in situations, because you know that I am still Lord over all people and things. If you find your contentment in me alone, you will never be disappointed, because I will never leave you nor forsake you. (Phi 4:11)
  • You will play an integral part in building the faith of those whom I will bring to you. You will be a source of hope and joy as you model your trust and belief in me through your outward actions and your words. Trust in me as I put you in situations where I need you to be faithful to your calling and my plan for your life. (Phi 1:25)
  • Humility(13)

  • There will be times when I will send someone to correct you, because you have wandered away from the truth. It has happened to all of my followers at one time or another, so receive the reproof with humility and submission. I have sent them to you so that you will stop and take a good long look at your life, your words, your thoughts, your actions, and even your belongings, to make sure you are still in the center of my will. (Gal 2:11)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • Rejoice in me! Rejoice in me! Rejoice in me! I can never say it enough to you, because your joy in me is your strength. Your joy allows my gentleness and love to be seen in you by others. Think about my goodness, my faithfulness, my never-ending love for you, and REJOICE! (Phi 3:1)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Judgement(40)

  • 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)
  • Because you have placed your trust in me, when the Father looks at you, He chooses not to see your mistakes, flaws and failures. Instead, He sees me and my righteousness. Your balance owed from your sins is zeroed out, and you are clean and pure in his sight, legally declared not guilty. If He has left your sins in the past, you need to do so as well. (Gal 3:6)
  • 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)
  • Love(171)

  • I never want you to think that I died to ransom you out of obligation to our Father. I did it because I truly love you. The affection I feel for you makes me long to keep you close to myself and take care of you. Come into my presence now and let me love on you. (Phi 1:8)
  • 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)
  • When you are struggling, remember that what you choose to do affects not only yourself, but your brothers and sisters. Stand firm in my word, love selflessly, and speak about me with everyone you meet. Act as though the salvation of those around you is at stake, because it may very well be. (2Tim 2:10)
  • Mercy(14)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • MY PRIVATE MESSAGES ONLY(0)

    Obedience(406)

  • As a Christian, people are watching you, and seeing how your life reflects or does not reflect me. One way to reflect me is to carry your own load to the best of your ability, and not be a burden to anyone else. It's one thing if you cannot take care of yourself and need help, but another if you are able to do so but do not do so out of laziness. (2The 3:8)
  • I have created some people to be prophets, and those entrusted with that gift should always be listening for my voice. And those who receive a word from a prophet need to test the message to see if it comes to pass. Hold on to whatever good comes of it, and let the rest go. If I speak to you, will you be willing to speak it to others? (1The 5:21)
  • Be careful of your natural desires and affections, because they can become your God. Anything that consumes your thoughts can become an idol. Commit yourself to get rid of your selfish thoughts and actions. (Col 3:5)
  • Patience(69)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • I want you to be fully mature, so you must learn about me, not only by reading what I have said, but by listening to what I am now saying to you personally. Dig in a little deeper when reading my word, and don't be in such a rush to leave me. Remember that you become like the people that you spend the most time with. (Col 1:28)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • 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)
  • Not only are you saved by my grace, but my divine empowerment also gives you the ability to say "No" to the temptations of the world, your flesh and the enemy. More than just resisting ungodliness, my grace empowers you to be self-controlled and obedient, reflecting my righteousness. In what area of your life do you need to tap into my power to overcome temptation? (Tit 2:12)
  • Today, our father and I want to fill you with all of our power so you may accomplish what we ask of you today. We also want you to be filled with my peace that passes all understanding, which comes from unwavering trust that I will take care of everything that is important to you. We will provide for you everything you need for life and godliness today. (Tit 1:4)
  • Praise and Worship(30)

  • All of the universe praises me, from the angels in heaven to the rocks that will cry out to fill the silence of those who will not sing my praises. The angels are mighty only because they obey me and receive their power from me. Yet, although they are beautiful creations, you are higher and greater than angels. You are not only my creation - you have been adopted as my own child, filled with my Holy Spirit, and will rule and reign with me forever. Praise me with all of your heart! (Psa 103:20)
  • It is impossible to remain in my peace when you are constantly thinking about everything that is wrong. That is why I command you to think on everything that is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, and excellent. These things remind you of my past goodness toward you, so you can trust in my future continued faithfulness towards you. To gain and keep your peace, praise me and pray to me in faith continually. (Phi 4:8)
  • 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)
  • Prayer(55)

  • Pour yourself out - not only for me, but for others. Spend yourself spiritually in prayer, carrying the burden for those who don't know how to pray, or have lost hope. Spend yourself physically in practical service to others, meeting their needs. Freely you have received from me as I poured my life out for you, so freely give of yourself in the same way. (Phi 2:17)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Pride(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)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • I am the purpose of your life - to remain in me, listening to me and obeying me. I am the goal of your life - to become like me in thought, word and action. I am the reward of your life - to be in my presence forever. (Phi 1:21)
  • My purpose for you is to be my servant, leading others to the knowledge of me, so they will trust in me. Their faith will allow me to come and live inside of them by my spirit, so that they can live a godly life. You lead the charge to bring the hope of eternal life to a lost and dying world around you. (Tit 1:1)
  • Stay in my word, so when others ask you about me, you will know how to answer them. If you don't know the answer, tell them you don't know, and then ask and study to find out. But you don't have to know everything to be a faithful witness for me. (Col 4:6)
  • Rejection(26)

  • 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)
  • Do not think that God is blind to those who persecute and reject his children. But remember that they are still part of his beloved creation, and though he hates their sins, he loves them and wants them to become adopted as children of God. Have you been experiencing feelings of rejection from anyone? (1The 2:15)
  • Always keep in mind that your rewards in life and eternity come from me, no one else. I am the one you need to please, no one else. Do everything in a way that will bring glory to our father. (Col 3:24)
  • Repentance(12)

  • The gospel is not a man-made story. I am real, I am true, and am perfectly able to reveal myself to you and others in power. Whether or not they will believe, accept, and live for me is another thing, but do not doubt that I can prove my word to be true to those who are seeking me. Simply continue to live for and direct people to me. I will do the rest. (Gal 1:11)
  • 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)
  • 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(211)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Salvation(124)

  • There is no need for you to be afraid of those who oppose my messages. The Holy Spirit will give you the words to say when you need to speak, or to tell you what actions to take. This will be a sign to everyone around you proving that you are mine. (Phi 1:28)
  • You didn't earn your salvation by following a set of rules or working to pay off your debt. You accessed my saving grace through surrendering to me as your Lord and God, and trusting that I paid off your sin debt through my sacrificial death on the cross. In the same way, I call you to live daily by faith, not by a checklist of do's and don'ts. Your righteousness is evident through spending time with me, listening to me, trusting me and obeying what I say to you personally and through my Word. (Gal 3:11)
  • I am the purpose of your life - to remain in me, listening to me and obeying me. I am the goal of your life - to become like me in thought, word and action. I am the reward of your life - to be in my presence forever. (Phi 1:21)
  • Security(7)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Servanthood(26)

  • 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)
  • When you give to others as I direct, on my behalf, it is a sweet-smelling sacrifice to me. Your offering is pleasing to our father, who remembers your kindness and generosity to his other children. When you are in need, the memory of your faithful giving comes before him, and he will provide for your needs as well. How can you give to someone else in their need today? (Phi 4:18)
  • 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)
  • Sin(193)

  • 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)
  • Just remember, there is no place for hatred in you because you belong to me. Stay focused on thoughts that keep you in My light at all times. What good things can you thank me for right now? (1Joh 2:9)
  • Be very very careful about people who claim to be Christians, but bring destruction wherever they go. Brothers and sisters should be encouraging and building each other up and not tearing each other down. You can witness to and teach these people, but do not become close friends with them, because they will only bring you down. (2The 3:6)
  • Strength(47)

  • 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)
  • I long to encourage your heart and strengthen you in every good deed you do and every virtuous word you say. It is my power that runs through you and gives you the ability to respond to me in obedience. How can you use my power to glorify me today? (2The 2:17)
  • Don't let your anger get the best of you. It will blind you, and you will stumble in the darkness. (1Joh 2:11)
  • Submission(30)

  • Many people want to change the gospel to fit their lifestyle. They say that my word was only good for a season or in a certain age, but my word is true and eternal. The bottom line is that believers lives' should prove in practical ways that the Father (and His Word) is the priority of their life, and that they are willing to surrender and submit to his will. In what area of your life are you tempted to live according to this world's customs? (Gal 1:7)
  • When you give to others as I direct, on my behalf, it is a sweet-smelling sacrifice to me. Your offering is pleasing to our father, who remembers your kindness and generosity to his other children. When you are in need, the memory of your faithful giving comes before him, and he will provide for your needs as well. How can you give to someone else in their need today? (Phi 4:18)
  • Those who minister on my behalf full-time are deserving of financial and material support. They take care of your spiritual needs, oversee your souls and trust me to provide for their needs. I will use you and my provision in your life to help provide for them. Don't ever think for one moment that you have earned your money apart from my favor. So spend your money as I direct you as well. (Phi 4:16)
  • Suffering(60)

  • 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)
  • Everyone who wants to live a godly life in me will be persecuted. They persecuted me, so they will persecute you. You must be prepared to endure suffering for my name's sake. I will always be with you, and empower you to withstand the attacks of the enemy, and turn what he meant for evil into good. But I need you to be faithful to me while you are going through it. (2Tim 3:12)
  • Do not be surprised when you face persecution. I told you beforehand that if they persecuted me that they will persecute you also. But be encouraged, have no fear, for I am with you always. Tell me what I can do to help you live for me today. (1The 3:4)
  • Temptation(84)

  • Many people want to change the gospel to fit their lifestyle. They say that my word was only good for a season or in a certain age, but my word is true and eternal. The bottom line is that believers lives' should prove in practical ways that the Father (and His Word) is the priority of their life, and that they are willing to surrender and submit to his will. In what area of your life are you tempted to live according to this world's customs? (Gal 1:7)
  • The rest of the world uses their sexuality as a badge of pride, bragging about their lust and how others lust after them. But you do not belong to the world, and you know our father and his desires for your life. Do not act like those who do not know God. How are you struggling in this area? (1The 4:5)
  • Don't think for a minute that I and my father are not bothered by sin. The wrath of God is still coming to all who live apart from us. Even if sexual immorality is commonplace, there is no place for it in the kingdom of God. (Col 3:6)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • It is so tempting to gain things. But your only purpose is to gain me. Gain intimacy with me, make knowing me through everyday experiences the most important goal of your life. Everything else is worthless garbage in comparison. In this way, every day can hold great victories, because knowing me more does not depend on anyone else's participation, and turns every event, good or bad, into another opportunity to gain more of me. (Phi 3:8)
  • Nothing matters but listening for and obeying me. If you want to reach your intended future, if you want to experience being in the center of my will, you need to press on with all of your might toward my call on your life. Don't let up! Don't give in! Keep going until you win your prize. (Phi 3:14)
  • Spend as much time as possible getting to know me better, keeping yourself close to me. It is the only way to keep yourself from idols (have other things become more important than me). (1Joh 5:21)
  • Wisdom(71)

  • Whenever you perform tasks for other people, especially at your job, do it as though I was your supervisor. Do it joyfully, with all of your energy, and give your employer everything they have paid for and more. (Col 3:22)
  • My prayer for you today is that you will be united in love with, and encouraged in heart by your brothers and sisters in Christ. This is the only way to have complete understanding of me and my love. I designed you with a need for love, as well as the capacity to give love. But you must remain in fellowship with my people in order to experience love in its fullness. (Col 2:2)
  • Compare everything that you hear to the sound doctrine which you have heard in the gospel concerning me. But first you must know what I have said in order to make the comparison. Study to understand me and my kingdom so you can discern between what is the truth and what is just man's ideas. (1Tim 1:11)
  • Witnessing(85)

  • 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 have chosen you to minister to very specific people. You don't need to know ahead of time who they are, you just need to listen to my still small voice and follow my lead. Do not fall into the trap of feeling inferior because you are not reaching some people the way others do - my plan for your life is distinct from theirs. Just be faithful to do as I instruct you. (Gal 2:7)
  • 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)
  • Worry(37)

  • 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)
  • I know what I am doing. You've got to trust me. I know the future, and it is good. Talk to me about what is concerning and distracting you. (Jer 29:11)
  • Pray to me, and ask me for opportunities for you to share the good news about me. Do not be afraid or nervous about what you will say. I will provide the timing and the words. (Col 4:3)
  •
