  • Step 8. We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all. - Do to others as you would have them do to you. (Luk 6:31)
  • Step 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 11. We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of his will for us and the power to carry that out. - Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly. (Col 3:16)
  • Abandonment(55)

  • It is very tempting to give in to fears of rejection and ridicule, and change the way you act or talk around certain people. You may censor what you share about me in their presence, or possibly change how you act to better fit in with them. But you know better than this - especially around people who so desperately need you to be different than them, to be a light in a dark place, to be Christ-like among people who are worldly. Be strong and courageous, and live for me regardless of who surrounds you. (Gal 2:12)
  • When you entered into a relationship with me by faith, you received every spiritual blessing I have to offer. I promised never to leave nor forsake you, and to take care of everything which you entrust to me. No one else can ever take away what I have given to you or promised you, nor can they give you more that I can give. For all eternity, I am yours and you are mine, and everything I have I share with you. Decide today to faithfully use the spiritual gifts I have given to you in service to me. (Gal 3:15)
  • There will be times when you feel as though everyone has deserted you, and no one came to support you in your time of need. But I command you not to hold this against them. Every person has their own path that they must walk, and although their paths may cross yours for a season, few will remain on the road with you. Let them and the hurt go. (2Tim 4:16)
  • Anger(29)

  • 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)
  • If you do not want others speaking badly about you, do everything in your power to avoid giving them ammunition. Let your words be kind and honest, reflecting my words and ways. Live and speak in such a way that when anyone wants to come against you, they will not be able to find a reason to criticize or complain about you. (Tit 2:8)
  • 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)

  • 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)
  • Worrying doesn't accomplish anything. If you are going to set your mind on something, or use your mouth to say something, let it be in doing something that can change the situation. Remind yourself of everything that I have given to you for which you can be thankful, and in that attitude of gratefulness, come to me and ask me for whatever you need. This is the only way to gain peace in the midst of anxiety. (Phi 4:6)
  • If you are not sure about something, don't worry about that. We will make that clear to you in due time. If it is a subject of debate between you and someone else, do not feel you have to prove you are right or have all the answers. I will reveal what needs to be known at the right time to the right people. Trust me in this. (Phi 3:15)
  • Authority(39)

  • I am your king and your God. I am eternal, living forever, immortal, never dying, invisible to the human eye, and the one true God. You must strive to live so that your life will bring me honor and glory. How can you best honor me today? (1Tim 1:17)
  • Although you carry with you my authority everywhere you go, I do not want you to be puffed up with pride. I don't want you acting like you are better than anyone else, or more mature. Instead become as a young child, accepting others as greater than yourself, and loving them. Is there any attitude for which you need to repent? (1The 2:7)
  • 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)
  • Correction(36)

  • 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)
  • I designed my family to work together, with the older, more mature members teaching the younger ones the truths they have learned from me. These life lessons include controlling what you say and who you talk about, and remaining in control of your person at all times (not getting drunk or high). Most of all, everyone must learn that their conduct always reflects back on me, and their actions must show that they hold me and my words in the highest esteem. To whom can you pass on the lessons you are learning? (Tit 2:3)
  • It is easy to falsely believe that you can act one way in private while displaying another personality in public. But I see you at all times, and I am the one you should strive to please. Continually submit yourself to my spirit, and do not give in to the temptation to be quick tempered, or lose self-control, or do things which are in the slightest way untrue. (Tit 1:7)
  • Death(16)

  • I am looking forward to the day that I return for you. All who had slept in death will be caught up with me first, and then you will be caught up with me and meet me in the air. We will be together forever! Tell me how that makes you feel. (1The 4:17)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Depression(49)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Discipline(54)

  • I know sometimes you just want to lose it, but that is why I sent the Holy Spirit to live within you. As long as you surrender to him, the fruit of self-control will flourish, helping you to remain pure and kind, to stay busy with the things of God, and be respectful of those in authority over you. Do not give anyone the opportunity to speak evil of me because of misconduct on your part. In what area of your life do you need more self-control? (Tit 2:5)
  • In order to be resurrected from the dead, you must first die. In order for you to be raised into newness of life in my image, you must die to the person you used to be. You must die to the selfish desires of the flesh, and evil thoughts of your mind. The way to kill off the flesh is to obey the Spirit, for you cannot serve two masters. Feed your spirit and starve the desires of the flesh, so you can daily be resurrected into my likeness. (Phi 3:11)
  • 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)
  • Encouragement(80)

  • Many people talk a good talk, but you will know them by how they walk, and the effect they have on the lives around them. After they have passed through a group of people, is everyone uplifted? Are they encouraged? Are they closer to me than the moment before this person arrived? What effects do you have on those around you? (1Tim 1:6)
  • 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)
  • 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(237)

  • I encourage you to continue in diligent and earnest prayer, night and day, that you might be my channel to supply others with what they need to build their faith. It will require you listening for me throughout the day, and obeying me even when you do not understand my instructions. I want to use you in the life of your brothers and sisters. Will you let me use you today? (1The 3:10)
  • You will play an integral part in building the faith of those whom I will bring to you. You will be a source of hope and joy as you model your trust and belief in me through your outward actions and your words. Trust in me as I put you in situations where I need you to be faithful to your calling and my plan for your life. (Phi 1:25)
  • I never waste anything that happens to you. If you will surrender to me, I will use the things that occur in your life to bring people to myself, and transform you that much more into my image. When you are obedient and faithful to me, despite unfavorable circumstances, the truth of Who I am, what I did and what I can do spreads throughout your world. In what area of your life are you questioning my ability to turn it around for good? (Phi 1:12)
  • Fear(94)

  • It doesn't matter what it looks like around you. You have overcome the enemy. You belong to me and have victory over all of his schemes. (1Joh 2:14)
  • I am completely capable of providing for everything you need in this life. You don't have to be concerned about how you will get things for yourself, or hoard things out of fear of the future. Instead, I want you to focus on meeting the needs of others around you, spending yourself on them on my behalf, as I would do if I were physically there. I will direct, empower and provide for you regarding how and what you should do for others. Who is around you that needs help today? (Phi 2:4)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • You are so beautiful to me. Everything about you is exquisite to me, because I fashioned you just for myself. Every part of you is perfect to me. (Son 4:1)
  • You are so beautiful to me. When I look at you, you are flawless. I made you for myself, and you are perfect. (Son 4:7)
  • It is important to me that women dress modestly, not suggestively or inappropriately. Women should always dress to please me, not to attract sexual attention to themselves. I will bring them the right person at the right time, so they do not have to draw people with their looks. (1Tim 2:9)
  • Forgiveness(26)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Always remember how much you have been forgiven, and that others deserve the same kind of forgiveness. You were no better than anyone else, but I forgave you. Accept others as I accepted you, knowing that they are as imperfect as you are in this world. (Col 3:13)
  • Giving(36)

  • 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)
  • The enemy knows that it doesn't take much for you to be distracted by things that you do not have, especially money. He stands waiting for the opportunity to draw you away from your faith in me because I am not giving you what you want as quickly as you want it. But anything he allows you to have will pierce you with many griefs. Trust in me and be patient while awaiting my timing. (1Tim 6:10)
  • 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)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Healing(6)

  • Your patience with the suffering of others publicly sets you apart. People enduring illness often feel so vulnerable and isolated, fearful, exhausted and overwhelmed. They are rarely at their best, and it would be very easy to get annoyed with them. But I call you to go with them not only one mile, but two. Forgive their ill humor or bad mood that pushes everyone else away, and move closer - close enough to touch them with my selfless, endless love. (Gal 4:14)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Holiness(120)

  • The enemy and the world will always try to separate you from the Father and I. The people of the world cannot stand to see you living in the light, and will do everything they can to drag you down to the darkness in which they live. The light shines on their evil deeds, and they hate it. And the enemy always wants you to doubt my goodness so you will lose your faith in me. Cling to me at all times - do not let yourself be isolated from me or your brothers and sisters, because that will leave you vulnerable to attack. (Gal 4:17)
  • I said that I had to leave this earth in order for the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, to come to the earth. For the first time, my Spirit would not just come upon people temporarily, but He would live within the people of God permanently. Through faith in me you have received the blessing of the indwelling of my Holy Spirit, who is the evidence of your salvation and the source of your power to live for God. Focus today on living by my Spirit's leading as he reminds you of all I have said and done. (Gal 3:14)
  • Throughout your day, whatever you do and say, do it as if you were placing it on the altar as a gift to me. Would I accept what you say and do as pleasing to me? (Col 3:17)
  • Hope(33)

  • 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)
  • When you struggle with keeping your faith, or loving others, focus on the hope you have because of your future home in heaven. Remember where you are headed, and that this world is not your true home. (Col 1:5)
  • Remember always that you are a Child of the Light, and since you belong to the day, keep your eyes open and your wits about you. Protect your heart by continually entrusting it to me, and loving our father and others as I have loved you. Always keep the hope of your salvation in the forefront of your mind, to protect your thoughts. In what area is your faith wavering or your thoughts wandering? (1The 5:8)
  • Humility(13)

  • There will be times when I will hold you back from going to certain places, or meeting with certain people. There is a time and a season and a purpose for everything I do and do not do. Simply listen and obey, go when I say go, follow when I say follow. Trust my timing for everything in your life. In what area of your life are you tempted to rush ahead of me? (Gal 1:18)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Joy(26)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Judgement(40)

  • As a parent, it is hard to find a balance between firmness and mercy. Correction and discipline are meant to help someone become a more responsible person. However, over-correction can bring discouragement and despair. Focus on the sin while still loving the sinner, just as our father does. (Col 3:21)
  • Many people really believe that what they have been taught by others is the truth. They will act upon it with all earnestness. But that does not mean that it is the truth. Be careful to compare what others say to the truth of my word. And be merciful to those who believe not according to my word but what they have been taught. You do not have the complete truth either, so do not judge them. (Gal 1:14)
  • I have 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)
  • Love(171)

  • When you feel like you are going around that mountain again, just remember that I'm going around it with you. You can't get rid of me, because I love you. (1Cor 13:4)
  • When you deal with unloving people, remember that only those who know and love me are able to love others. That is because I am the source of all true self-sacrificial love. (1Joh 4:8)
  • If you want to know the best way to please me, show me your love by keeping our father's commands and loving others. Express your faith through love, and express your love through self sacrificial actions towards others as our Father directs. (1Joh 5:2)
  • Mercy(14)

  • 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)
  • Reminders of your failures only come from 2 places - the enemy of your soul and your own heart. The Holy Spirit will convict you of sin, but never try to make you feel worthless. He expresses my love for you while reminding you what I have said about sin and righteousness. Our Father will not continue to accuse you of something for which you have repented - He is not angry about what has been forgiven. Trust in His never ending love for you, and the permanence of the salvation I have purchased for you with my own blood. (Psa 103:9)
  • Our Father is worthy of your time being spent thinking and talking about how awesome He is. Let yourself be truly amazed at how massive and powerful He is, so it increases your faith in Him. The world has no problem speaking against His existence, or denying His power. So do not be ashamed to publicly extol His goodness and loving-kindness, faithfulness and mercy through your words, and more importantly, your actions. (Psa 103:1)
  • MY PRIVATE MESSAGES ONLY(0)

    Obedience(406)

  • Do not be ashamed or embarrassed when you get the desire to share my words or about my life. I am prompting you by my Holy Spirit within you to tell others, regardless of whether or not they accept you, or they ridicule or persecute you. I will prepare their hearts; you only have to be obedient to plant the good seed of your testimony in their hearts. I will reap the harvest later. (2Tim 1:8)
  • When you remain faithful to me, even in the worst of circumstances, you open up opportunities for even the most hard-hearted people around you to be broken and turn to me. Honor me with your attitude and your words, even when things go wrong, and I will move in the life of those around you. You may never see the results, but reaping the harvest is my responsibility - yours is to sow seeds through your obedience. (Phi 1:13)
  • The only way to be made perfect in love is to practice loving others. If you don't stop the flow of God's love through you in the Holy Spirit, you will be filled with his love always. (1Joh 4:12)
  • Patience(69)

  • As a parent, it is hard to find a balance between firmness and mercy. Correction and discipline are meant to help someone become a more responsible person. However, over-correction can bring discouragement and despair. Focus on the sin while still loving the sinner, just as our father does. (Col 3:21)
  • If you are not sure about something, don't worry about that. We will make that clear to you in due time. If it is a subject of debate between you and someone else, do not feel you have to prove you are right or have all the answers. I will reveal what needs to be known at the right time to the right people. Trust me in this. (Phi 3:15)
  • Those in authority must deal with the members of my body as a father deals with his own children. Judgement must be tempered with love and mercy, with the goal of raising up this child of God to be like me. They are not the judge, they are the shepherd and overseer of their souls. Is there anyone to whom you may have been harsh? (1The 2:10)
  • Peace(36)

  • 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)
  • Sometimes, you find your mind wandering toward thoughts of "what if" and "if only". If you will just turn your thoughts back to our Father's proven faithfulness, and rest in His care for you and His ability to handle every situation, you will find such peace. If you will quietly commit to complete trust in Him, you will find the strength you need to continue going. (Isa 30:15)
  • I want my Spirit to rain on you and saturate you through and through. Be still in my presence and let me pour my Spirit out upon you generously. In my Spirit is my life, my power, my love. Stop struggling and just soak. (Tit 3:6)
  • Power(85)

  • 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)
  • Not everyone acknowledges now that I am King over all, but there is coming a day when they will have to admit it. They will come face to face with me, recognizing the truth of who I am, falling to their knees in awe, and confessing aloud who I am. It doesn't mean everyone will accept me as their own Lord, but there will be no way to deny my Kingship. (Phi 2:10)
  • 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)
  • Praise and Worship(30)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Your obedience and love for me allows me to not only bless you, but to bless those around you as well. As you refresh me with your praise and worship, and unashamedly speak about me, I will pour mercy out upon your household. Give yourself to me freely, like pouring a drink offering on the altar, and I will take care of what is important to you. (2Tim 1:16)
  • Prayer(55)

  • Always be on guard against those who would try to block the message about me. You cannot do anything in the natural, so you must wage this war on your knees. Pray that my word would be preached throughout the nations, and that many would be saved through it's hearing. (2Tim 4:15)
  • I have always sought to please our father and confess him before the world. Imitate me in this way, living as I did while walking on the earth. As a child mimics his parent or older sibling, mimic my dedication to our father, my continual communication with and praise for him. In what areas of your life do you need to act more like me? (1Tim 6:13)
  • 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)
  • Pride(9)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Although you carry with you my authority everywhere you go, I do not want you to be puffed up with pride. I don't want you acting like you are better than anyone else, or more mature. Instead become as a young child, accepting others as greater than yourself, and loving them. Is there any attitude for which you need to repent? (1The 2:7)
  • Purpose(49)

  • Once you were a slave to sin, but no longer. I redeemed you out of slavery, I bought you back so you could enjoy fellowship with your Father and me. Because you are now His child, you can ask what you want according to His will and be sure that He hears you. Even better, everything that is ours is now yours, waiting to be received and used as your inheritance. Do not try to go it alone in your own strength - ask the Father for the gifts of your inheritance to help you. (Gal 4:7)
  • It is my desire that each member of my flock is watched over by another member. That is why I assigned an order to my body, to my church. Those who are more mature in the Lord should watch over the younger ones, and train them up to be disciplined and faithful to me. Listen and wait for me to tell you how you can help someone else grow in me. (Tit 1:5)
  • Not everyone shares the same calling. That is why I have widely distributed various spiritual gifts and natural talents, and assigned people to different paths. There are so many people who need to discover who I am, and then be taught about me and trained to be my disciple. Just as a body has multiple essential parts to make it work, so it is in my church. Be faithful to fulfill the calling I have placed on your own life. (Gal 2:9)
  • Rejection(26)

  • If someone refuses to hear my words when they are spoken by someone else, they are not rejecting the person who shares my word, but rejecting me. So be bold and courageous in your witness, and tell the world about me. Who can you reach out to today? (1The 4:8)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Repentance(12)

  • Reminders of your failures only come from 2 places - the enemy of your soul and your own heart. The Holy Spirit will convict you of sin, but never try to make you feel worthless. He expresses my love for you while reminding you what I have said about sin and righteousness. Our Father will not continue to accuse you of something for which you have repented - He is not angry about what has been forgiven. Trust in His never ending love for you, and the permanence of the salvation I have purchased for you with my own blood. (Psa 103:9)
  • When you repented and asked for forgiveness, it was granted to you. That matter was settled, the debt owed was paid, the file on the judge's desk was marked 'NOT GUILTY', sealed and filed away forever. It was removed from your record, just as if it never happened. The judge will not take that file back out to review it ever again. That's how far your sin was separated from you, so leave it and move on. (Psa 103:12)
  • 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)
  • Righteousness(211)

  • While the world is chasing after riches and material possessions, I want you to chase after good deeds, generosity, and eagerness to share what I have given to you with others. Don't fool yourself into thinking that you have provided for yourself, because I have been the source of everything you have received. I need you to be a good steward of all that I have entrusted to you, to use it for my kingdom. (1Tim 6:18)
  • 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)
  • Don't trust what people say. It may seem to make sense on the surface, or be traditionally correct, but it doesn't take into account all that I know and have taught you. Compare everything you hear to what I have said, or you may be enslaved by lies. (Col 2:8)
  • Salvation(124)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • People make the Christian life out to be much harder than it is. Religions have substituted their own rules, regulations and sacrifices for my simple command to listen, trust and obey whatever I say, whenever I say it. That's how you receive salvation, and how my Holy Spirit comes to live within and fill you with my knowledge, my characteristics and my power. Spend some time in my presence today, listening for my words of life for your situation. (Gal 3:2)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • When you came to me in faith, you were no longer held accountable to the tyrannical rules of the law. By my indwelling Spirit you are led, moment by moment, according to my instruction about what to do in every situation. So do not go back to trying to figure out what is right and wrong on your own. Instead, show that you love me with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and show that you love those around you as you want me to love you. (Gal 4:12)
  • Servanthood(26)

  • There will be times when I will hold you back from going to certain places, or meeting with certain people. There is a time and a season and a purpose for everything I do and do not do. Simply listen and obey, go when I say go, follow when I say follow. Trust my timing for everything in your life. In what area of your life are you tempted to rush ahead of me? (Gal 1:18)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Sin(193)

  • You know me, you know my thoughts, and you know my actions. Walk as I walk, and you will remain clean. (1Joh 1:7)
  • I didn't save you so you could remain the same way you used to be. No matter what the world around you calls acceptable, you are no longer of this world. You must put to death sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, every action that takes away from someone else to feed your selfish desires. (Col 3:5)
  • It is a fine line you must walk when your brother or sister is walking in willful sin. You should never regard them as an enemy, but you need to warn them. You cannot hang around with them either, because bad company truly does corrupt good character. (2The 3:15)
  • Strength(47)

  • You are a part of my family, and you must be willing to get involved in the lives of your brothers and sisters personally. Warn those who are either not doing anything for the kingdom, or are doing things to pull people apart. Encourage the disheartened, help the weak, and be patient with everyone. For whom can you be my hands and feet today? (1The 5:14)
  • My People must bear the fruit of self-control. It is the key to overcoming the issues of the flesh. Being able to control your reactions to others, and not giving in to excess of food, drinks, or any other substance, and being free from the love of money is the sign that you are under the control of my Holy Spirit. In what area are you struggling with self-control? (1Tim 3:2)
  • You don't have to fear. You have no reason to be discouraged. I am always with you wherever you go, and I will direct you and fill you with my strength. (Jos 1:9)
  • Submission(30)

  • When you entered into a relationship with me by faith, you received every spiritual blessing I have to offer. I promised never to leave nor forsake you, and to take care of everything which you entrust to me. No one else can ever take away what I have given to you or promised you, nor can they give you more that I can give. For all eternity, I am yours and you are mine, and everything I have I share with you. Decide today to faithfully use the spiritual gifts I have given to you in service to me. (Gal 3:15)
  • The curse of trying to live by the law is that you can never be successful. No human can perfectly live out every single law, so they are cursed to experience repeated failure if they try. But I have redeemed you from the curse of failure, from the futility of trying to be perfect before God through your own feeble abilities. I have freed you from religious legality and filled you with my Spirit, who is the only one who can empower you to live righteously through faith. Stop trying to be perfect and simply focus on continual communion with me. (Gal 3:13)
  • Everyone lives by their own code, or by a code that someone else has set for them. Some people believe that I have a set of rules and regulations that, if they follow them, will allow them to get into heaven. But I have only one two-part rule - LISTEN and OBEY. My commands for you personally can change from situation to situation, so live by every word that proceeds from my mouth. (Gal 2:19)
  • Suffering(60)

  • 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)
  • In order to be resurrected from the dead, you must first die. In order for you to be raised into newness of life in my image, you must die to the person you used to be. You must die to the selfish desires of the flesh, and evil thoughts of your mind. The way to kill off the flesh is to obey the Spirit, for you cannot serve two masters. Feed your spirit and starve the desires of the flesh, so you can daily be resurrected into my likeness. (Phi 3:11)
  • 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)
  • Temptation(84)

  • 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)
  • Do not trust yourself or your feelings, especially feelings of earthly love. Left to themselves, those feelings are selfish and are concerned with taking from others to meet your own needs. Make sure that you do not wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister in the name of "love". Is there someone you need to treat differently? (1The 4:6)
  • I want my Spirit to rain on you and saturate you through and through. Be still in my presence and let me pour my Spirit out upon you generously. In my Spirit is my life, my power, my love. Stop struggling and just soak. (Tit 3:6)
  • Thanksgiving(27)

  • I cannot urge you often enough to be praying for others - people you know well and people you know casually. Ask me to do things for these people, to intercede on their behalf with the father. Give thanks for them because I have placed them in your life for a particular reason. Who can you pray for right now? (1Tim 2:1)
  • Hold firmly to the truth you have learned of me through my Holy Spirit. Every day, you are bombarded by falsehoods, misrepresentations, and even communications spawned by sheer evil. If you meditate on these things, your gaze will be focused on the world and your attitude will become increasingly fleshly. Do not lose all of the ground you have gained through your hard labor in Christ by letting the truth slip from your grasp. Hold on! (Phi 2:16)
  • 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)
  • Unity(2)

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

  • I want your love for your brothers and sisters, as well as everyone else, to increase so much that it overflows. I want you to experience the kind of outpouring of love that the father and I feel for you. But this will only happen when you surrender to my spirit within you, and let my love flow through you. Who is the hardest person for you to love? (1The 3:12)
  • It doesn't matter what it looks like around you. You have overcome the enemy. You belong to me and have victory over all of his schemes. (1Joh 2:14)
  • Consider your prayers as a weapon of warfare, battling for the maturity and well-being of your brothers and sisters. Pray that they know and understand my will. Cover them in prayer continually. (Col 4:12)
  • Wisdom(71)

  • Be very careful to pay close attention to my words. They are trustworthy to convey my thoughts and my will without anyone adding to them. Learn them well so that you can encourage others by explaining my words to them, and especially to those who do not understand or believe. (Tit 1:9)
  • Be careful to consciously choose to do good things for God and for others. Stress to others the importance of this as well. Live before them as an example of how I would do things. Good works done as an outward expression of your faith in me is excellent in my eyes, and benefits everyone around you. (Tit 3:8)
  • 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)
  • Witnessing(85)

  • How you treat the people in authority over you reflects back on me and my name. This especially goes for your employers, because if they are unsaved, your conduct can draw them to me or repel them away from me. If they are saved, then you should serve them even better as a fellow believer. Take great care to watch your conduct, for others are always watching you. (1Tim 6:1)
  • I am reminding you again to be obedient to those in authority over you, even if you would do things differently if you were in charge. Always be ready to actively perform good works for them, as well as respond to things with which you disagree with a good attitude and your best abilities. Remember, you are my ambassador and represent me at all times. (Tit 3:1)
  • The message of my saving power and loving kindness is "preached" every time you walk in faith in me. You show the world that I am real, testify of my goodness and worthiness to be followed and served. Remember that big and little eyes are watching you at all times. (1The 1:8)
  • Worry(37)

  • I am using everything that you are going through to transform you into my likeness. In the perspective of eternity, what you are struggling with will pass in a twinkling of an eye. However, the results of working through your challenges head on (instead of trying to go around them) will last forever. Keep your eyes on the joy set before you - being with me. (2Cor 4:17)
  • 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)
  • Don't put your trust in other people and other relationships - that will always lead to disappointment. People come and go, and do not have control over their own actions or what will happen to them. But you can completely trust in and rely upon me, because I will never, never, never leave you or abandon you. (Heb 13:5)
  •
