May you not be surprised when authorities and principalities in the world exalt and magnify themselves above values and principles, norms and guidelines, even above the Word of God, and succeed in being accepted by many, for God works with willing vessels, and a time of wrath must be completed, for what has been determined must take place. Daniel 11

May you take notice when the time of distress occurs, that God will defend and protect, shield and cover, deliver and redeem His people, all whose names are found written in His book. Daniel 11

May you diligently test the doctrines and teachings you are given, not by man’s carnal reasoning or the world’s unsanctified wisdom, but by the wisdom which comes down from the Father, as found in the Scriptures, testified to by the Spirit, and confirmed through the Body as exemplified and manifested by a lifestyle that demonstrates the love of God, which sent Jesus Christ, Who came in the flesh, to make man saveable. 1 John 4

May you be confident that the spirit of antichrist, which influences people to deny the divinity of Jesus Christ and reject divine authority, has been overcome and defeated because the One Who is in you is greater that he who is in the world. 1 John 4

May you love one another, for love springs from God, and everyone who loves others is born of God and is coming progressively to know and understand God – to perceive and recognize and get a better and clearer knowledge of Him. 1 John 4

Turn to Me, My child, in all things. Come to Me for comfort, find in Me wisdom for the day, receive from Me the provision I have promised daily. I long to embrace you in My arms and let you find the blessings I have prepared for you.
Spend time alone in your heart with Me, My dear one, and let your thoughts become focused on Me. I have much to tell you, and you have much to learn of Me. Set aside the cares and concerns that distract you and hear Me speaking encouragement and strength into your life as I express My love for you.
You must seek Me with your whole heart, focused and eager, because that which I have prepared for you is hidden. Do not be discouraged by this or disheartened, for that which you seek is not hidden from you, but it is hidden for you.
As you look for Me and follow My footprints, hearing My whispers, drawing close and recognizing My fragrance, you will encounter those things which speak to you of the depth and width and length and height of My love.
Do not settle for the crumbs and handfuls that others share from the abundance I have given them, but persist in your pursuit and receive all that is yours from My hand.
Do not be content to only hear someone else tell you how much I love you, but continually seek Me until you hear the full expression of My love for you from My own lips.
Although the path is challenging because the world will place brambles and thorns in your way, the flesh will put stumbling stones and rocks on your path, and the enemy will flood the way to drag you down and mire your progress, still I am with you and will make the way for you. Turn always to Me.

May you understand in humility and gratitude that God loved you first and sent His Son, Jesus Christ, as an atoning sacrifice for your sins so that you might live because of His work and love one another, relying on the love God has for you, so that His love is made complete. 1 John 4

May you live in the calm certainty of God’s love for you, and know God’s love in your life for others, having no fear of the day of judgment, for His perfect love drives out any fear of punishment, freeing you to love God and love others, giving to their needs just as God has given to your needs. 1 John 4

May you lift up your eyes to the Lord, whose throne is in heaven, just as the eyes of a slave look to the hand of their master, till He shows you His mercy and lovingkindness. Psalm 123

December 3

Colossians 1:13 For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves…

Matthew 6:20 Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

May you know God, personally and intimately, just as He desires you to, for then you will be able to firmly resist the enemy, and those he influences, when they come against all that God stands for with desecration, corruption, and flattery for those who violate the covenant of God. Daniel 11

May you be wise in the Lord and instruct many, giving understanding and insight to endure tribulation and withstand persecution. May you know that the harm the enemy intends for destruction and evil will be turned by God to good, bringing refinement and purification. He will have a spotless people, being cleansed until the appointed time, which will come, for the Lord has declared it. Daniel 11

May you realize that the Son of God appeared to destroy the devil’s work, for the person who makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, but the person who has allowed the Word of God to reside in them cannot live a persistently sinful life. All things are become new for them; they are a new creation, having been born into the family of God. 1 John 3

May you love one another, avoiding the error of Cain, who murdered his brother, Abel, because his own choices were selfish. His actions were influenced by the enemy, who sought to kill and destroy the righteousness that was in Abel through his love for God. 1 John 3

As your caring Father, I anticipate lavishing My gifts upon you, gifts that exceed your expectations, presents that are greater and richer than your wildest imaginings. However, just as not all things are age-appropriate for a specific child, nor is every tool useful in a given job, and neither does every piece of jewelry compliment the chosen ensemble, even so not all that you wish for and desire will be given immediately.
I delight in giving you the desires of your heart, and I know what is required for you to receive and enjoy what you desire in a safe and responsible manner. Understand that when you seek Me for what you desire, I will start preparing you and positioning you to receive it.
Even as you would not give a firearm to your child until they have shown the needed responsibility in other areas and successfully complete a safety training course, so I will take you through circumstances to bring up and reveal what is in your heart, allowing you to give it to Me to remove, that you may operate in My love rather than in your pride.

May you lay down your life for your fellow believers, as Jesus Christ laid down His life for you, not merely with words but in truth with actions, not because of merit or worth but from mercy and love, for this is how we set our conscience at rest in His presence whenever we are condemned, for God is greater than our feelings, knowing everything. 1 John 3

May you be obedient to God’s command to believe in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as He commanded you. Those who obey His commands live in Him and He in them. You will live free from any condemnation from your conscience, having confidence before God and receiving from Him anything you ask, because you are obedient and pleasing to Him. You know this by the Spirit He gives you. 1 John 3

May you rejoice with those who say to you, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” Psalm 122

May you approach the Lord in prayer, waiting on His pleasure, waiting in the Spirit, approaching in sorrow and repentance, in humility and awe, in recognition of His majesty, His integrity, His love, in confession of your own unworthiness and inability, and His righteousness and faithfulness, seeking that He will forgive, that He will accept, that He will hear and act, and that He will not delay. Daniel 9

May you acknowledge that the sins and failings of your society and culture have brought the judgments of sin and the curses of transgression from the righteousness of God and the holiness of His heaven, and may you intercede before the Lord on behalf of His Name and all of those who cherish it. Daniel 9

May you know that God’s messengers are sent on your behalf to give insight and understanding as soon as you begin to pray, and if you endure, persisting in faith, you will see the answer. Daniel 9

May you set aside time when the Lord calls for it, and step aside from the routine to wait on His desire, forsaking your daily pleasures and entertainment to make Him your focus and align your heart and mind with His Spirit. Daniel 10

May God’s touch, through His Word, His Spirit, and His Body, give you strength to stand and words to speak, though overcome and helpless on your own, while in His presence. Daniel 10

May you hear and accept God’s designation and characterization of you, even when it differs from your own perspective, for He speaks of what will be as though it already were, knowing the end, even from the beginning. Therefore know that, though you feel faint, weak, without strength, unclear in thought, incapable of speech, overcome by anguish, unable to stand and hardly able to breathe, you are well-beloved, highly esteemed, filled with understanding and wisdom, strong, calm, at peace and without fear. Daniel 10

May you realize that because of the anointing from the Holy One, you know the truth, His Spirit bearing witness with your spirit, and no lie comes from the truth, for whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also. 1 John 2Him

May you make the effort to see that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you, for if it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father, and He has promised you eternal life. 1 John 2

May you remain in Him, as His anointing remains in you, so that you will be led into all truth, and you will recognize the counterfeit being taught by those who would lead you astray. 1 John 2

May you continue in Him so that you may be confident and unashamed before Him at His coming. 1 John 2

May you know that just as He is righteous, so everyone who does what is right has been born of Him. 1 John 2

My treasured one, I have provided you a wardrobe filled with garments. They bear many colors and styles, woven in beautiful patterns and made from eternal fabrics. They are My gift to you, My loved one. Come, enjoy being clothed in them for they are individually handwoven, custom-made for you by Me.
This raiment represents My nature, by which you will bear My image in the world. My strength under-girds you, yet is gentle and easily persuaded. My peace stands firm against all efforts to disturb it. My salvation guards your feet from stumbling or slipping as you walk in My paths and work in My fields. My righteousness is a robe that covers you entirely, embroidered with My grace and mercy and stating to all who see you that you are Mine.
You have not created these garments, nor have you earned them; they are My gift to you. I took on your nature of flesh in order to live and die sinlessly, freeing you from your debt, breaking the power of death, hell, and the grave; I willingly shed My unblemished perfection in heaven, and gladly received the scars of the price I paid for you, My dearest treasure.
In like manner, I have granted you the privilege to partake of My glory and bear the loveliness of My nature, living in the majesty of My name, for I have named you “Accepted” and “Fairest among all” and “Blessed.”

May you understand in ever greater degree just how great the love the Father has lavished on us is, that we should be called children of God! 1 John 3

May you comprehend that the reason the world does not know you is that it did not know Him. 1 John 3

May you rejoice that while it has not been made known what you will be, you most certainly are a child of God, and you know that when He appears, you shall be like Him for you shall see Him as He is – therefore everyone who has this hope within purifies themselves just as He is pure. 1 John 3

May you receive the truth that He appeared so that He might take away your sins and, in fact, in Him is no sin; thus no one who lives in Him makes a habit of sinning repeatedly, or persists in an on-going lifestyle of sin, for those who deliberately choose to sin and elect to remain in their sins have neither seen Him nor known Him. 1 John 3

May you recognize and acknowledge with ready confession that your help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121

May you be secure in the confidence that the Lord will keep you from all harm – He will watch over your life, watching over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalm 121

May you always remember that the Lord is holy and He calls His people to be holy, for God will cleanse His house of rebellion even though doing so appears to wipe out all that is called by His name, allowing truth, for a time, to be thrown to the ground. Daniel 8

May you be comforted that the Lord will always have a remnant, and desire to be numbered therein, for just as He did with Noah, with Abraham, with Moses, and many others through history, God will raise up a people of faith and an army of believers; they will walk in obedience, humility, and holiness before Him, showing His mercy, His love, His grace, and His righteous judgment, in strength and power, to comfort the poor, care for the homeless, lift up the downtrodden, and defend the defenseless.

May you grasp the fact that if you treasure and obey His word, observing His message in its entirety, God’s love has truly been perfected, completed, and reached maturity in you, for whoever claims to live in Him must, as a personal debt, walk and conduct himself as Jesus did. 1 John 2

May you understand that if you love your brother, you live and abide in the light, and there is nothing in you to cause you to stumble, but anyone who detests or despises his brother is in darkness and straying, not knowing where he is going, for he has been blinded. 1 John 2

May you not love or cherish the world, or anything in the world, for then you will not be able to love, cherish, and obey the Father – remember, the world and its desires will pass away, but the one who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2

There is much for you to be, My child, in order to do all you have been assigned.
You must be bold in approaching My throne and presenting your petitions. You must be strong in the faith when standing on My Word to claim the promises you have been given.
You must be violent when taking the kingdom. You must be gentle when applying balm to My wounded sheep.
You must be seen as foolish in the sight of man in order to confound the wise of this world when I speak through you. You must accept being weak when I call for you to do great exploits, lest men honor you.
You must become as a child to be drawn into My embrace and be blessed. You must be diligent in searching out My truth with your whole heart.
Learn of Me, My dear one, and seek My wisdom which has been hidden – not from you, but for you.

May you call on the Lord in your distress, for He answers your cry and will save you from lying lips and from deceitful tongues. Psalm 120

May you understand that the deceitful tongue will be punished by the Lord with the sharp arrows of a mighty warrior and the glowing-hot, long-lasting coals of His anger. Psalm 120

May you not willingly dwell with and abide among those who continually hate peace and stir up wrath, ever arguing and always ready to fight, but find your comfort in the Lord and renew your strength in fellowship with His people, granting and receiving the balm of the oil of the Spirit which brings peace and soothing calm to your troubled heart, rest and reassurance to the turmoil of your mind. Psalm 120

May you trust in and solely rely on the Lord for you will prosper as He abundantly blesses you and enriches your life, but the greedy and arrogant person who provokes conflict, stirs up dissension, causing strife and fighting, will gain nothing. Proverbs 28:25

May you walk in skillful and godly wisdom for the Lord will keep you safe, but the one who leans on, trusts in, and is confident in his own heart and mind is a fool and walks in constant danger. Proverbs 28:26

1 John 3:18 Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.

Philippians 3:20-21 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body.

May you watch in your heart for the coming of the Son of Man in the clouds of heaven, for He has been led into the presence of the Ancient of Days.

Daniel 7

May you be among the saints of the Most High, for they will receive the kingdom of God and will possess it forever. Daniel 7

May you rest in the assurance that–although the powers of spiritual wickedness come against the people of God, waging war and, to the eyes of the world, defeating them–the Ancient of Days will pronounce judgment in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time will come when they possess the kingdom. Daniel 7

May you proclaim and testify to others of what you have seen and heard of the Word of life. Then they may share the fellowship you have with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ, making your joy complete. 1 John 1

May you know and declare that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. If you walk in the light, as He is in the light, you have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies you from all sin. But if you claim to walk in fellowship with God yet walk in darkness, you do not live by the truth. 1 John 1

May you confess your sins, for He is faithful and just and will forgive you your sins and purify you from all unrighteousness. However, if you claim you have not sinned, you make Him out to be a liar and His word has no place in your life. 1 John 1

Do not be troubled by the darkness that you see in your thoughts, My child, nor feel shame for the acts of disobedience that occur in your life. I am purging you, cleansing you, and purifying you; the secret things, which I know already, are being made known to you.
The distaste and revulsion you feel when these thoughts and attitudes surface show your allegiance to Me. Even when you feel some longing for these old and familiar favorites, you are freed from their power. You can choose a new way, for the old thoughts and attitudes no longer hold mastery over you.
Remember the priests who carried out the trash when the Temple was cleansed. The refuse soiled them and the smell disturbed them and the work stained them, but it was only surface-deep and was easily rinsed off.
Repent, reject, and refute the “trash” in your life as circumstances cause it to appear. Then refresh yourself in praise and worship, allowing Me to wash your feet and your hands with My Spirit of joy, for you are closer to Me now than ever before!

May you engage in wholesome thinking by recalling the words spoken by the holy prophets and commands given by our Lord and Savior through apostles. 2 Peter 3

May you ever remember and accept by faith that just as long ago, by God’s word, the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water, yet by these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed; by that same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. 2 Peter 3

May you always remember this: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like a day, so the Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness, but He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3

Do not fear want or need, My dear one, nor feel shame at lack or shortage. It is not a measure of your worth, nor is it an indicator of My power. These are tools of My training and the methods of your assignments, My child.
I walk beside you through the process, My love, always with you, never forsaking you; when you have My presence, My comforting Spirit, you have all riches and treasure you need in abundance – you simply have to accept it by turning to Me and embracing Me.
The farmer toils hard in the field, the stockman spends days and nights with the flock and herd away from the comforts of his house, the business man travels far without the company of those he loves, the warrior endures privation and hardship in his assignment – each one fulfilling his appointed task in obedience to his calling, never feeling shame in the midst of his work, simply looking forward to the time when the task is complete.
Go forth in your work, My trusted one, in the circumstances you are given, drawing from Me all you need, walking in constant fellowship with Me so that I can guide you step by step, word by word, deed by deed, establishing the Father’s will and the kingdom of God in earth.

May you penitently keep hearing, receiving, loving and obeying God’s statutes, for His testimonies are wonderful, far exceeding anything conceived by man. Psalm 119

This is how your testimony of Me develops, My dear one.

May you join with others to seek God at times of need, understanding it will affect so many others as well, asking God for His mercy, in full assurance of His provision, as you honor Him by your request, turning from all other sources, depending on and deepening your relationship with the Lord, which is the true purpose of all that drives you to, and draws you near, the Presence of God.

May you realize that those who do not know the pleasures of a Godly life which is lived in obedient and humble service to the Lord will think it strange that you do not plunge with them in the same flood of dissipation, debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry. They will heap abuse on you, but understand that they will have to give account to Him Who is ready to judge the living and the dead.

That is how you will be able to treasure those who are Mine, though they offer little beauty for your eyes to see.

May you not disregard the day of small beginnings, or the benefit of initial steps, for just as the water that flowed from the temple merely made the paving stones damp in the courtyard, as you keep following the path of the Lord’s assignment and walking in His presence, moving in the power of the Spirit, obeying the word of God, you will find yourself going deeper into the life-giving truths of the Lord and bearing the fruit which feeds others and the leaves which bring healing, if you continue and do not falter or turn back. Ezekiel 47

May you readily accept others, whom you have not known, as having a part in the inheritance of God, receiving them and their children (for no one who goes warring can travel fast with children) wherever they settle & distributing their allotment the same as anyone else. Ezekiel 47

May you confidently understand and realize with certainty that the Lord knows your name and is fully acquainted with and aware of who you are and what you are like. He has prepared an inheritance for you that will beautifully fit your needs and is perfectly suited to your preferences since He has never taken His eyes off of you. He has studied you in the way a person enjoys a work of art over and over, never growing tired of hearing a lovely song performed, or gazing on a beautiful painting, always finding joy and satisfaction in the smallest details – even so God enjoys you. Ezekiel 48

May you abstain from the sinful desires which war against your soul, since you are aliens and strangers in the world and represent a different King, that you may live such good lives among the pagans that though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God, your King, on the day He visits us. 1 Peter 2

May you submit yourself, for the Lord’s sake, to every authority instituted among men, whether to the king, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right, for it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men. 1 Peter 2

May you live as a free person, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil. Instead live as a servant of God, showing proper respect to everyone by loving the brotherhood of believers, fearing God, and honoring the king. 1 Peter 2

May you submit yourself, as an employee, to your manager and employer with all respect, whether they are considerate or harsh. Bearing up and enduring unjust suffering for doing good, because you are conscious of God, is commendable, but there is no credit for enduring discipline for doing wrong. Instead, follow the example of Christ Who suffered for you though He did no wrong and spoke no lies, entrusting Himself to the One Who judges justly. 1 Peter 2

May you know that you can die to sins and live to righteousness because Jesus Christ, Himself, bore your sins in His body on the cross, and by His wounds you have been healed; for though you were like a sheep wandering away, now you have returned to the Shepherd and Protector of your soul. 1 Peter 2

May you walk in wisdom toward all who watch so that the conversation of your life-style may show the incorruptible beauty of God’s holiness in your behavior, clothed with the imperishable loveliness of a gentle and tranquil attitude as you continue daily in humble submission to the Father’s Word. 1 Peter 3

My child, I have not called you to a war which is fought with weapons of mass destruction, pursuing a scorched earth policy. Rather, I have engaged you in hostage rescue as you battle an enemy which uses human shields and employs child warriors who cannot determine right from wrong.
You cannot win My victories through weapons of the flesh, of the mind, or of the world, My precious one. You will, at times, have to follow steps that appear to lose the battle in the eyes of the other combatants, suffering loss, bearing shame, enduring scorn, for the true enemy is only defeated by the spiritual power I give you.
The strongholds of lies built by the spiritual forces of evil in heavenly realms are pulled down by your example of humility of heart, meekness toward men, trust in Me, and the greatest of these, the same giving, yielding love toward your fellow man that I showed during My trial and on the cross, for there is no ordinance against these. Through this, men will see the loving nature of the Father Who accepts all who come in repentance.
The deceitfully conscripted ranks of the enemy’s army will see the light of the truth that shines through you as you choose to die to self; they will pull strength from My life, as it appears in you, to break free from the burdensome yoke of the fear of death which has held them prisoner.
So rejoice and give thanks, My dear one, for in your praise to the Father lies the victory for others.

Ezekiel 46

May you prepare your minds for action, be self-controlled, and set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed, for as obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance, rather, just as He Who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do. 1 Peter 1

May you live your life as a pilgrim and a sojourner on earth in reverent fear since you call on a Father Who judges each man’s work impartially, for you know that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down through your forefathers by the precious blood of Christ, a Lamb without blemish or defect. 1 Peter 1

May you declare the praises of Him Who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light, for once you had no part with Him, but now He has made you one of His chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, and from Him you have received mercy. 1 Peter 2

Receive My gifts as I give them to you, My child; accept My provision as I make it available.
As a loving Father, I desire the best for you, My dear one, and will include nothing that is deadly or dangerous.

My child, I call you to work, not to idleness.
It is a sacred work that I assign you, one for which you have been shaped and formed by My Hand, trained and equipped by My Spirit. It is not a work you can do in your own strength and skill, nor one that you can accomplish with your own strategies and wisdom.
If you begin to feel you have been given an impossible task, My dear one, then you are beginning to truly see and hear what My Spirit is speaking to your heart.
It is when you feel a dread inside and a concern that you have bitten off more than you can chew, when you start wondering if you were wise to promise to follow Me where I would lead you that I can begin to truly use you in My work.
That is when, in desperation, you will begin to lay aside the useless tools of man and the worthless wisdom of the world and come to Me in humility, asking for My wisdom and seeking to find My strength in My Word.
I rejoice to receive you at the time you feel the most worthless and the least valuable, for I can only use an empty vessel, not one filled with self-confidence and influenced by other agendas.
Empty yourself, My precious one, and receive My infilling; seek Me early for your daily bread and wine and oil, then go in My strength and joy and glory to fulfill My commission, returning empty but obedient, having gone forth bearing fruit and returning bearing the harvest.
