  • 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)
  • Voluntarily submit to any and all changes God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects. (Steps 6 and 7) (Mat 5:6)
  • Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and my words. (Step 12) (Mat 5:10)
  • Abandonment(55)

  • I saved you with my own blood, buying you out of your slavery to sin, so that you could be adopted by our Father. That is why your heart yearns for Him, and your spirit cries out to Him, "Daddy." Don't you understand that your deepest need is really to be close to Him, to experience His protection as well as His everlasting love? Indulge yourself and give in to your need - spend time in intimate communion with Him now. (Gal 4:5)
  • When I come back for you, you will no longer be hampered by your flaws and failures, because you will be transformed into my likeness. You will share in my glory, my characteristics and traits. Eagerly look forward to that day, but live through me now. (Col 3:4)
  • I know you wonder what it will be like when I return. I will come down from heaven with a loud command, and you will hear the voice of the Archangel and the trumpet call of God. The dead who believed in me will rise first and we will all be reunited. It will be glorious! (1The 4:16)
  • Anger(29)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Anxiety(94)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • The world is filled with uncertainty due to the corruption of creation, free will, and the presence of evil. But if you spend your life waiting for the other shoe to drop, you will live in continual anxiety. The only way to have peace is to acknowledge the truth that no matter what happens, our Father will always prove Himself trustworthy to take care of you. (Psa 112:7)
  • Authority(39)

  • I love my church, my bride. She is my body, held together by my spirit and my power, as long as she stays connected to and acknowledges me as her head. When the church obeys me and not man, my body grows in members and in power. (Col 2:19)
  • 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)
  • You never have to worry about being bold when you face opposition. I will give you my boldness with which I responded to those who questioned my authority. Plus, the mark of having my Holy Spirit in you is boldness to be a witness. Who can you witness to today? (1The 2:2)
  • Correction(36)

  • 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)
  • There are some people that only want to stir up trouble. The enemy has such a hold on them that they cannot control themselves. Warn them twice that you cannot be around that kind of behavior, and if they continue, stay away from them. Otherwise, you will be seen as a participant with them and be in danger of ruining your own (and my) reputation. (Tit 3:10)
  • 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)
  • Death(16)

  • There is no reason to fear, because I have overcome your greatest worries. I have even destroyed the power of death and have brought to you my eternal life. When you need wisdom, I will shine upon you the light of my words of truth. This is my promise to you today and every day. (2Tim 1:10)
  • I am 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)
  • You can be confident in these things - my never failing love for you and my boundless power to complete the work I have begun in you. I didn't save you to leave you as you were, but to rescue you from sin and death. I brought you out of darkness and into my glorious light, and placed my Spirit in you to continue your transformation so that when we see each other face to face, you will be like me. (Phi 1:6)
  • Depression(49)

  • When you wonder whether or not your life will ever be changed, if you will ever be changed into my image, remember this. Our Father is using in your life the same power that He used to raise Me from the dead. This resurrection power is what will allow the old you to die off and the new you to be reborn into my likeness. Trust Him to complete what He has begun. (Eph 1:19)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Discipline(54)

  • As I fill you with my love for our Father and for others, and teach you more about myself and my heart's desires, you will begin to act just like me. You will have more joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control as you surrender to my Spirit's will, and allow my love to flow through you. As you stand clothed in my righteousness before our Father, you will bring glory, honor and praise to Him. (Phi 1:11)
  • LISTEN and OBEY, that is all the Father asks of you. Has the Holy Spirit spoken anything new to you? If not, what was the last thing He spoke to you? What have you done to obey what He instructed? What more can you do? (Exo 24:7)
  • 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)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Faith(237)

  • 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)
  • Your prayers do make a difference! Do not give up now. Your faith combined with the power of my Spirit can move mountains in your life and the lives of others. Join with your brothers and sisters in constant prayer, and watch me trample the darkness by bringing my Kingdom of light here to earth. (Phi 1:19)
  • 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)
  • Fear(94)

  • 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)
  • 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 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)
  • For Men(2)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Forgiveness(26)

  • It is possible to continue in sin for so long that you no longer care about it. Such people have consciences that have been seared as with a hot iron. If you continually spurn the leading of the Holy Spirit within you, your heart and your mind will become stubborn and rebellious against me. If there is anything wrong in your life, repent of it now and return to me. (1Tim 4:2)
  • 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)
  • You've got to be honest with yourself, and acknowledge your thoughts and actions that go the wrong way. I know that you want to do right, but don't always get it right. Just confess them to me, and everything will be forgiven. (1Joh 1:9)
  • Giving(36)

  • I pay attention to my brothers and sisters who take care of others in need. Don't look around to see who else is giving to someone experiencing hardship. If I have shown it to you, and have impressed upon your heart to give to them, do not worry about how it will be spent or what will come of it. Simply obey me out of faith in and submission to me. (Phi 4:15)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Grief(19)

  • 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 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)
  • 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)
  • Healing(6)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • The past has played its part in forming who you are in the natural, but it does not have to define who you are now or will be in the future. It is important to go back for a season to what happened to you so you may face it and be healed from it, but never stay chained to it. Once I reveal and begin healing you from it, leave it behind and stretch yourself to move forward, toward my future and my calling for you. (Phi 3:13)
  • Heaven(24)

  • Our Father loves to hear you call Him "Daddy." When you acknowledge that He is your Father in heaven, the One who loves you more than anyone else, who will provide for all of your needs and protect you, it allows you to move even closer to Him. It is healthy to be like a little child who wants to run to his Father, because He is a Father who never turns His children away. Run to Him now and spend time in His presence. (Gal 4:6)
  • 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)
  • Nothing you can do with your body can get you into heaven. Salvation from the penalty, power and presence of sin in your life comes only from repenting of your sins, acknowledging that I am the Son of God who paid for your sins with my sacrificial death, as well as surrendering your life and submitting your decisions to me as your Lord. Once you belong to me, "works" will automatically flow out of you by the power of my Spirit. (Gal 2:16)
  • Holiness(120)

  • 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)
  • In order to be a teacher of my word, you must know more than my actual sayings and teachings. You need to understand how a life is transformed by them because you have experienced such a transformation yourself. Beware of people who teach my word, but their life shows that they have not been personally transformed by the truth. (1Tim 1:7)
  • It is very easy to get consumed with other people's lives. But there is a name for people who pay more attention to others' lives than their own - they are busy bodies. They have too much time on their hands, and get caught up in issues that are none of their business. Stay away from these gossips, and be very careful that you do not become one. (2The 3:11)
  • Hope(33)

  • 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)
  • I know it is easy to be tempted to revenge when someone else has wronged you, especially, if you know you were in the right. One of the greatest ways to apply your faith is to respond with a blessing. Moreover, be an example to others who may be with you in times of trouble so that they can glorify the Father in Heaven. Learn to trust me with all your heart, even in trouble. (Rom 12:19)
  • When you 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)
  • Humility(13)

  • I want you to know every part of me, my power to overcome this world, my love for the Father and for everyone else. But that also includes knowing me in my death to my own desires, my subjecting myself in obedience to my Father in opposition to my natural will. Like me, you will learn obedience through what you suffer. That is also how you will experience the same power that resurrected me from the dead. (Phi 3:10)
  • Faith is the only thing that matters in your life. Everything you do must be in trusting response to my will, which I will make known to you. You can't, at any time, substitute your own works for obeying me. There is no action you can take or thing you can offer that will make up for rejecting my instructions to you. I require that you be merciful to others, do the right thing, and walk humbly in obedience to me at all times. (Gal 2:17)
  • 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)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Judgement(40)

  • Our father doesn't judge you the way that people do. They make up rules to make themselves feel like they are better than other people, like what people can eat or touch. But that is not from our father, who is more concerned with you expressing your faith in him through loving him and others. (Col 2:21)
  • The enemy is continually trying to tear apart the body. One way is by bringing up accusations against the leaders in your church. The accusation may come through another brother or sister, or maybe it arises from your own mind, but do not meditate on it, and do not repeat it. If there is any issue, go directly to the person and speak to them about it. Otherwise, treat it like the poison that it is, and avoid contact with it. (1Tim 5:19)
  • Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, minding your own business and doing your own work. Be careful not to slip into gossip, talking about others when they are not around. There is more than enough going on in your life to keep your mind busy. Have you been talking about someone else's life or conduct? (1The 4:11)
  • Love(171)

  • The Holy Spirit continually directs your thoughts toward the love of God for you, and your heart toward the love of God flowing through you. He also wants to encourage and empower you to endure through the hard times. Let Him lead you where I need you to follow - trust him. (2The 3:5)
  • When you're stressed out, you tend to turn to everyone else and ask their opinion. But what you need will only come from me. It is found in quiet contemplation of my faithfulness, and trust in my love and power that will bring you out unscathed. (Isa 30:15)
  • I saved you with my own blood, buying you out of your slavery to sin, so that you could be adopted by our Father. That is why your heart yearns for Him, and your spirit cries out to Him, "Daddy." Don't you understand that your deepest need is really to be close to Him, to experience His protection as well as His everlasting love? Indulge yourself and give in to your need - spend time in intimate communion with Him now. (Gal 4:5)
  • Mercy(14)

  • 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)
  • Faith is the only thing that matters in your life. Everything you do must be in trusting response to my will, which I will make known to you. You can't, at any time, substitute your own works for obeying me. There is no action you can take or thing you can offer that will make up for rejecting my instructions to you. I require that you be merciful to others, do the right thing, and walk humbly in obedience to me at all times. (Gal 2:17)
  • Contrary to popular belief, our Father is not an angry God waiting to destroy evil doers. He is compassionate, understanding the flaws and failures of men, and gracious, offering His own power to mankind so His followers can obey Him. Unlike man, He is very slow to become angry because he overflows with love for his creation. He longs for everyone to come to Him for salvation and doesn't want anyone to be separated from Him. Think on His loving-kindness toward you and spend time in praise for his mercy in your life. (Psa 103:8)
  • MY PRIVATE MESSAGES ONLY(0)

    Obedience(406)

  • Do not strain yourself to understand things that you do not comprehend. At the right time, for the right purpose, I will reveal myself and my truths to you. But you must believe and act upon them in order for me to bring to you additional revelation. Be faithful to act upon what I have already shown you. (Gal 1:12)
  • Make sure that your walk and talk match. Love without expression is meaningless, and love without action is useless. Are you doing your best to live for and love like me? (1Joh 3:18)
  • 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)
  • Patience(69)

  • Sometimes, the hardest people to love are those closest to you. However, these are the ones who deserve and need your selfless giving the most. Do not neglect ministry to your family in favor of ministry to outsiders. Love your family in practical ways that let them know they are important and cherished by you. (Tit 2:4)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Peace(36)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • My desire is that you would be filled with my peace at all times and in every way. I am with you, so I can handle all of the problems and struggles. You are not in this alone, so relax and let me handle it. (2The 3:16)
  • Power(85)

  • Godliness can only come when you have God living in you. When God lives in you, you have God's power as well. There is no such thing as godliness without power. So avoid anyone who tells you godliness is based on rules and regulations, because it only comes from my spirit indwelling you. (2Tim 3:5)
  • Everything in heaven and on earth, seen and unseen, was created by my father and I. All of the rulers and people with power and authority have been placed there by my father, to accomplish His will. You can trust that he knows what he is doing in your life. (Col 1:16)
  • You used to be a slave to every urge and thought that came to you, to every spirit of the enemy that would come to distract and confuse you, but not now. Now that you belong to the Father, and His Spirit lives in you, you have the power to resist the devil so he will flee from you. When you feel yourself sliding back into fleshly responses, call out to the Father, pray and surrender to whatever the Spirit says to you. You are no longer your own, because you have been bought with a price. (Gal 4:8)
  • Praise and Worship(30)

  • 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)
  • Anyone who professes to worship God should have a life that is adorned with good deeds. Having a personal faith means nothing if it is not expressed to the outside world. Your faith should be expressed in self-sacrificial acts of kindness toward others. What good deed can you do today? (1Tim 2:10)
  • I am the head of the Church, my body. I am the beginning and the end, the first born from among the dead, and I rule over all. I deserve the highest place in your life, your worship, your praise and adoration. Most of all, I deserve your obedience. (Col 1:18)
  • Prayer(55)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Our Father loves to hear you call Him "Daddy." When you acknowledge that He is your Father in heaven, the One who loves you more than anyone else, who will provide for all of your needs and protect you, it allows you to move even closer to Him. It is healthy to be like a little child who wants to run to his Father, because He is a Father who never turns His children away. Run to Him now and spend time in His presence. (Gal 4:6)
  • Pride(9)

  • There are those who oppose and ridicule the truth of my word. Their minds are depraved, and they reject knowledge of me. But it is not long before they expose themselves for the foolish people they are. Let me deal with them, and do not try to change their mind. Stay far away from them. (2Tim 3:9)
  • 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)
  • 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 need you to remain open to do whatever I ask of you. Sometimes I will send you to assist another in their ministry, and at other times will send others to help you with yours. I do not call any man to work alone, but to always be a part of my body, connected to other members. (2Tim 4:11)
  • Be strong in my grace; I will divinely empower you to respond to me in obedience. You cannot follow me in your own strength; you will fail every time. Instead, call upon my name and I will come to you, and give you everything that you need to accomplish my will. (2Tim 2:1)
  • 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)
  • Rejection(26)

  • Don't be surprised when people who had formerly walked alongside of you disappear to follow their own desires, or even worse, turn on you. It happened to me and my apostles, and it will happen to you. Just keep moving forward, because I have appointed others to take their place. Just never put your trust in any of them - only place your hope in me. (2Tim 1:15)
  • Don't be surprised when people who don't know me don't care for you. But you still need to love them as I love them. I will help you to love them. Just ask me. (1Joh 3:13)
  • When people ridicule or scorn you because of your beliefs, remember all that I endured when others railed against me. If you don't keep me, the Perfecter of your faith, in front of your mind, you will faint and become weary. Rejoice because you are sharing in my sufferings. (Heb 12:3)
  • Repentance(12)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Righteousness(211)

  • This world is evil. People naturally are selfish and self-protecting, and even creation has been warped since the time of the Fall. But I willingly laid my life down to pay for your sins, and to rescue you from the power of this present evil age. If I had not gone away, the Holy Spirit would not have come to live inside of you, giving you the power to live godly every day. That is the will of our father for your life. (Gal 1:4)
  • If you believe nothing else, always remember that I came into the world to save sinners. It doesn't matter how bad you were, or are, because sin is why I came to earth. But now that I have come, and you have received me, sin has no place in your life. Remember where you came from, and all I have done for you, and live for me today. (1Tim 1:15)
  • Once you were separated from our Father. You were his enemy because of the selfish thoughts in your mind and your evil behavior. Remember how much he has done for you, and be merciful to others who now are as you once were. (Col 1:21)
  • Salvation(124)

  • 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)
  • When we created you, we created you for love, joy, peace, and fellowship with us. You were never intended to be separated from us. Your destiny is not to suffer wrath, but receive the many blessings that come with your salvation. How can I bless you now? (1The 5:9)
  • 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)
  • Security(7)

  • Our father is a God of kept promises. He is faithful to fulfill his word to those who believe him. His inheritance for his children is every spiritual blessing he has to give, as well as his provision and his protection. You can't earn an inheritance - it rightfully belongs to the offspring. In the same way, you can't earn all he wants to give to you by obeying the law, it is yours simply because you belong to him. Rest in his promises today. (Gal 3:18)
  • When you came to me in faith, you were no longer held accountable to the tyrannical rules of the law. By my indwelling Spirit you are led, moment by moment, according to my instruction about what to do in every situation. So do not go back to trying to figure out what is right and wrong on your own. Instead, show that you love me with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and show that you love those around you as you want me to love you. (Gal 4:12)
  • When you learn how to find your fulfillment and joy in me despite your external circumstances, you will enjoy endless peace. You never need to doubt that I will provide for whatever you need, especially the ability to continue in the midst of adversity. A lack of things will never affect you while your trust is placed firmly in my loving kindness, power, and faithfulness. What in your life is making you doubt my faithfulness? (Phi 4:12)
  • Servanthood(26)

  • 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)
  • When I walked on the earth, I knew I was God, but never used that as leverage to manipulate other people to do what I wanted. I didn't come to the earth to have others serve my needs and wants, but to serve them. I need you to have this same servant mindset, and be ready to serve others' needs as they present themselves and as I direct you. (Phi 2:6)
  • Your calling is not of men, but of me and our father. Men cannot make you worthy of the calling, nor can they call you to my service. Be careful of confusing filling a current need with answering your calling. They are very different things. So do not take on a position unless you are sure that I have called you into it, but be willing to fill individual needs as I bring them to you. (Gal 1:1)
  • Sin(193)

  • I know that there is no one without sin on earth, but whoever desires to be an overseer of their brothers and sisters must be held to a higher standard. Their conduct is to be above reproach in their family matters as well as in public life. Are you living your life in such a way that, should you be called to do so, you could fill the position of an overseer? (1Tim 3:1)
  • The way that leads to sin is very slippery. It starts with hanging around the wrong people, and then spending more time with them, until finally you become like them. Be very careful about the company you keep, and while it is good to witness to them, it is not good to become best friends with them. (Psa 1:1)
  • Although I am merciful, wrongdoers will always have to pay for their actions. There is an effect to everything that you do. If the ripple from your actions harms someone else, you will be held accountable for it. (Col 3:25)
  • Strength(47)

  • Although it is very important for you to take care of your body as the physical temple that houses my Holy Spirit, spiritual training in godliness is much more valuable. Not only does it empower you to live for me in this world, but it also prepares you for life with me in eternity. How can you train yourself to more fully obey my Spirit today? (1Tim 4:8)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Submission(30)

  • It does not matter who you were before, or how bad you were, or how poorly you treated others. When you come to me, I wipe the slate clean spiritually, and everything becomes new. You become a new creation, in my image and for my pleasure. I can use even your past to bring my will to pass in your life and in the lives of others. Just trust me. (Gal 1:13)
  • Faith is the only thing that matters in your life. Everything you do must be in trusting response to my will, which I will make known to you. You can't, at any time, substitute your own works for obeying me. There is no action you can take or thing you can offer that will make up for rejecting my instructions to you. I require that you be merciful to others, do the right thing, and walk humbly in obedience to me at all times. (Gal 2:17)
  • There will be times when I 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)
  • Suffering(60)

  • I continually brag about you to our father. We talk about the work you do for us prompted by your active trust in us, as well as how hard you labor out of love for us, and how you endure so much for my name's sake. We know it is because you keep your eyes on your hoped for future. We are so proud of you. (1The 1:3)
  • 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)
  • 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)

  • There are people who will turn away from my word, preferring instead to make up stories about who I am and how the world works. The universe, as they call it, is their attempt to fabricate a god who does not correct or rebuke them or require anything of them. Do not allow them to turn you aside to these false myths. (2Tim 4:4)
  • The more time you spend in intimate communion with me, the more completely you will understand me and my desires for your life. Every day offers you many "good" opportunities, but I want you to have the "best" which I have planned for you. Listen for my voice and choose what I would choose for you, that you may stand pure and blameless before me on the day I return for you. What "good" thing is drawing you away from my "best" for you? (Phi 1:10)
  • The enemy may try to block your way as you work for my kingdom and my purposes. But he does not have the last say, for our father counteracts everything the prince of this world does, so that His will and Kingdom reign supreme. What do you want the father to move for you today? (1The 2:18)
  • Thanksgiving(27)

  • Loving anything more than me makes you an idolator. People are tempted to love themselves, money, reputations and material possessions. They believe the lie that they have obtained these things for themselves, instead of thankfully acknowledging me as their provider. Protect yourself from this trap, and protect your love for me above all other things. (2Tim 3:2)
  • You always have a choice - you can listen to the evil reports of the world and the enemy, or believe the good report of the Father. Open gratitude for all that He has done for you makes you stand out as a blameless and pure Child of God among a godless, warped and crooked generation. Today, SHINE for me, live your life so obviously for me that everyone will see your good works and praise your Father in heaven. (Phi 2:15)
  • When you remember all I have done for you, where I have brought you out from, and how much I love you, it should result in overflowing gratitude. You should also feel compassion for those who are now where you were before you met me. Be patient, kind, and merciful to them as I have been to you. (Col 3:12)
  • Unity(2)

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

  • Remember to call upon Me when you are facing temptation and troubling fleshly cravings. Call on me, acknowledge your weakness, and I WILL rescue you with my strength. Honor Me and bring Me glory by listening to my still small voice and obeying it. (Psa 50:15)
  • When I come back for you, you will no longer be hampered by your flaws and failures, because you will be transformed into my likeness. You will share in my glory, my characteristics and traits. Eagerly look forward to that day, but live through me now. (Col 3:4)
  • I am the express image of our invisible father, and he has placed me over all the earth, and all creation. He gave me that authority as his first born, but you have been adopted as his child as well, and also inherit this authority. (Col 1:15)
  • Wisdom(71)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Witnessing(85)

  • When you are distressed because of suffering and persecution for my sake, remember your brothers and sisters who are in dire situations for the gospel. Be encouraged by how strongly they stand for me. Take their faith as an example, and become an imitator of them. Who can you pray for right now? (1The 3:7)
  • 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)
  • There are many things that you can be proud of, but the biggest joy and greatest reward are the people you have led to Our Father by your words, and more importantly, with your life. Those who have come into the kingdom because of you are like beautiful jewels in your crown. Who else do you want to bring to me? (1The 2:19)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • What you see is what you get when you live by sight. But when you live by faith, you get so much more than what you see. You receive my peace, my power, my love, my presence - all of the things that are invisible but eternal. Hope comes when you focus your eyes away from temporary things and onto your future with me forever. (2Cor 4:18)
  •
