‘You are blessed when people hate you, when they exclude you, insult you, and slander your name as evil because of the Son of Man. “Rejoice in that day and leap for joy! Take note — your reward is great in heaven.’ Luke 6:22, 23
Have you felt slighted lately? Any chance you have been targeted or shunned? You know, we can be finished with those ‘of the world’, finished with those who want to make us small, finished with the ‘stuff’ that tries to steal our souls – but where would we ever begin to be finished with our Creator? When are we old enough to stop being the child of God Most High? Does a point come when we are done belonging to Him and done with needing His joy holding over our lives?
He calls the broken to walk as warriors.
He calls His child to speak of Him and for Him.
He calls you to pull up His ancient fire from your core to be strengthened and sheltered, and to
intervene for His glory to penetrate from you into every life you pass.
‘But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings, and you will go out and playfully jump like calves from the stall.’ Malachi 4:2
Like warm rolls from the oven, we all need the Father’s healing touch. His is the big coat wrapped around you when the north wind hits hard. When the enemy gets brutal, He’s the wrestler of our tag team.
He rises with healing in His wings to fan the flames of healing for each wound of
the tightrope walker,
We are His. We belong to Him, He belongs to us.
He heals. Ask.
“Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Your heart must not be troubled or fearful. (John 14:27 HCSB)
Some things never seem fair. They never will in this broken world. We only have human eyes and often in our wounded state, we fail to remember that we can’t compare ourselves to another.
We are all wounded, aren’t we? But, we are not simply broken toys – we are living beings that will exist for all eternity.
Each soul’s journey, your and mine, is highly unique, on a path of its own, because Father God made each of us our own person. Life is not at all about getting a fair reward for living right. We know many who are good people, yet have huge battles. Likewise, we know scumbags who seem to get all the lucky breaks.
God Most High didn’t put you and me here to focus on fair. He put us here to learn to live in His Spirit:
‘Therefore, we may boldly say: The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?’ Hebrews 13:6
Newness awaits today, CourageousHeart.
Your heart, like this day, holds a universe of unexplored territory. Within is a carrier of delight and wonder. You begin this hour on the cusp of dynamically reaching into others to leave a profound mark of eternity.
Feel His presence.
Respond to your Creator’s invitation, dazzling.
Ask and expect God Most High to twist today’s terrifying into exhilarating.
Let yourself go in total trust.
Totally propelled into Christ.
What can man do to you?
‘I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.’ Philippians 1:6
Good morning, God’s Creation.
You have been changed. Each season of life works a bit more of the barbarian out of us. The Christ knows you. You have called for the entrance of the Holy into your season. He listens and then He moves whatever way you understand Him best. He speaks your language better than any human.
His good work in you takes on many forms unique to you alone. Hold the door open in every part of your tide for Him to enter in …
while simply being in the way your Spirit allows.
Speak much. Or, speak little. The work of your Creator will progress in you whether you speak on it or not.
Allow Him room to work.
Go to bed.
‘For The Lord will be your confidence.’ Proverbs 3:26
Good morning, ReadySoul!
What battle is pending today?
Allow yourself to feel The Lord Almighty, Miraculous, coursing into you.
Close your eyes to feel His grip
Feel the earth below your sure steps with legs He stands you upon.
Feel His air rushing into your lungs, radiating
with movement of air, every breath.
Ah, Beloved. Feel the presence of your soul … His great river of life …
His force of rapid currents strengthening your body with each second.
Prepare for battle and deliver.
You are empowered and sparking fire … readied by the presence of His Holy Spirit.
Lord, take me over.
‘Jesus answered, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word. My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.’ John 14:23
You are so loved, DearOne.
Have you thought to feel the love lately? Let the total refreshment of Jesus Christ brush over you and pour into you –
covering every part –
down your arms and the surface of your legs – across your neck,
between your fingers –
between your toes –
Experience Him radiating deep, into every part of you. Let the pureness of His love clear every blemish that you think stands in His way.
Be still and feel Him pour over and pour in.
There you go, sit still in Him for a while.
Really let Him love into all of you.
That’s all there is, Beloved One.
That is all you need.
Resting there, let Him shine back out to each one that crosses your mind for a while.
His infinite goodness is alive and active in you and me.
‘The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.’ (Psalms 16:6 HCSB)
‘My choice is you, God, first and only. And now I find I’m your choice! You set me up with a house and yard. And then you made me your heir!’ (Psalm 16:5, 6 MSG)
There is a truth that is soul-deep, get this: your time has come; each of us have the Power to make a difference in the lives of others and in our environment.
Change is happening light-speed fast, it is impossible to keep up. It is time you realize that nothing technology can bring compares with the extraordinary beauty and power of living out human life, fully active in His Holy Spirit. Inheritance for others is at stake.
In Him, you are an agent of profound change. Your actions in His light opens a shaft of grace on others as well. Give generously, so others will know Their Savior and gain their inheritance, too. Do not question what He asks of you – the boundaries have been set. Consider yourself well on your way.
Give Him away.
Lives are at stake.
Go to bed.
‘For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light’ Ephesians 5:8
Hope you are cozy warm, Dearheart! Brr!
Does your presence infect others with Light? Are you a window to the Holy with your mere presence?
It is easy to get caught up in the doom and gloom, ‘oh, brother, not this’ or ‘why, me?’ kind of mindset — especially when that is the norm from our peers.
Allow yourself to shine as the solution to the mess, God’s Child. Pull down deep and release the realization of Whose you are burst to the surface and sweep over you and everyone with whom you brush by. (Even if you are iced in with your own!)
Shine all day!
Go to bed.
