Trust Happiness Sept.29

Trust Happiness         Sept. 29

The truth still remains that you can find thankfulness from any of your opposing experiences. But, I your Lord, also want you to trust happiness in Me. Life, light, nature and any experience with Me can give you joy. As you remind yourself to pray and work through Me, celebrate your relationships. Stop and feel. Give thanks for all the little unmentioned things.

Prayer: Thank you Lord, for family, friends and work that you send my way.

Kingdom Action Sept.28

Kingdom Action Sept.28

If I, your Savior, show you a need, if I let you see it clearly, the ability to see it becomes the Spirit’s urging to take some action and meet the need. You may not meet every need, but work the one most clear. Discern the Spirit.

Reader Prayer: I pray today you would help me see and meet someone’s need.

Spiritual Presence Sept.27

Spiritual Presence                  Sept.27

Often, you wonder why I do not keep you feeling My presence all the time, every waking minute. Your flesh would burn up. I can only expose you to absolute purity for brief moments, only those amounts your spirit can accept and absorb. Even one like Moses had to hide his face from the people because My glory shined too bright after being with Me a length of time.

Prayer: Lord, teach me to handle your power and glory, one step at a time.

Rebellion Sept.26

Rebellion Sept.26

The kingdom bears its own fruit because it joins the proper soil. You are the soil. You are to become plowed anew, enriched and readied for the seed of the kingdom. I, your Savior, give the life energy to grow the fruit, but you have to be ready to receive the proper seed. If you rebel, you grow the weeds that take place in the good soil. Weeds wither and die. Only the kingdom-type plants endure forever.

Reader Prayer: Lord, sometimes it is scary being the soil and knowing we get plowed up, but give us courage to allow the right seed.

Your Control Sept.25

Your Control               Sept.25

When I walked with My twelve disciples and ate corn from the stalks in the field, I was challenged by man’s law “to not gather grain” on the Sabbath. Then, I posed the question: “Was man made for the Sabbath or the Sabbath made for man?” In other words, was a person made for the environment or the environment made for a person? Be aware that your circumstances do not control you, but you control your circumstances. You have lasting decisions to make so your job, friends, or even family do not over run you.

Prayer: Lord, help me with clear, specific decision making concerning every aspect of daily living.

Perspective Sept.24

Perspective Sept. 24

From now on, do not view any person from a worldly point of view. See each, no matter whom, as a potential for My kingdom reconciliation. Do not see them as rich or poor, educated or not, clean or dirty, smart or dumb, good or bad. View them as potentially a new creature in My love.

Reader Prayer: Lord, I do pray you would help me see others through your eyes.

The Little Thing Sept.23

The Little Thing Sept.23

Every little gem of wisdom I pass to you comes from the Father and exists like a drop of fresh water to parched lips of the soul. Share often all you can. Today, especially, be faithful in the small things of the kingdom: give a compliment, help someone smile, encourage the down hearted. Your effort takes no more energy to be kind than to be rude.

Reader Prayer: Lord, thank you for reminding me to treat others as I would want to be treated.

The Supreme Gift Sept.22

The Supreme Gift    Sept. 22

Remember, rather than giving up on you, I continue to give Myself for you.

Reader Prayer: Lord, I don’t always understand your great love, but I thank you and praise your name for your sacrifice.

Friday, September 21, 2012

Complacency Sept.21

Complacency Sept. 21

One of your church leaders said that you face a generation trying to drink its way to prosperity, war its way to peace, spend its way to wealth, and ride a road of pleasure into heaven. Prosperity does not come by artificial endeavor. War remains only war. Spending more only works if it’s a gift of yourself. Only enjoying your way to heaven may mean you are missing struggling occasions that are opportunities to grow. You do grow more through the challenges, and then you rest in Me.

Prayer: Lord, sometimes the challenges seem too much, but help me to see the growth in all of them.

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Ambition Sept.20

Ambition Sept. 20

Take a moment and think on this question. Can any ambition that yearns so much for praise and place, actually live the gospel of the Son, who cared not for any reputation and took on the form of a servant? You need only holy ambition that buries itself in serving others for the kingdom’s sake.

Reader Prayer: Lord, I do want to think more of helping people than only helping myself. Let any interruptions become you sending me someone to help.

The Trade Sept.19

The Trade Sept. 19

You cannot reason away some emotions. You must learn to trade the bad emotion for a better one. For instance, perform conscious effort and trade your anger for love. Let the emotional and chemical quality of love neutralize to renegotiate anger. I, the Lord, will help turn negative anger into the energy of redeeming love. Pray now to make the trade.

Prayer: Lord, help me to know your love in practical ways and be willing to trade any negative feeling for your unselfish love.

The Kingdom Sept.18

The Kingdom Sept.18

I have told you specifically there are, at least, three qualities of human nature that belong to the kingdom of the Father. You must become poor in spirit. You must enter My realm as a little child. You must be willing to endure suffering in my name’s sake. Poor in spirit means to renounce your self-will and turn to Me. You are to remain childlike with trust and faith. You must learn to couch your discomfort in My name. Any of these possess the kingdom and the kingdom possesses them.

Reader Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me remember the Kingdom is now and not just in the future.

The Father's Partnership Sept.17

The Father’s Partnership Sept.17

Do you not realize how important you are? I left the joy of heaven as the second person of the Trinity to come to earth, bear the Cross, and go back to heaven with a new joy because I take you with Me. I left behind the Holy Spirit to partner with you in all things. Use your faith I’ve given you to claim what already exists. Turn over all non-faith matters to Me.

Reader Prayer: Lord, help me to know the difference between the faith issues and the non-faith issues in your kingdom.

Joy Sept. 16

Joy Sept.16

I, the Lord of All the universe, want you to experience joy each day. No matter what circumstances prevail. How? You may ask. Let your expectations be defined by My possibilities. I send opportunities everyday. Look for and expect My little surprises each day you live and know that you live eternity even now.

Prayer: Help me today stay open to the kingdom possibilities and not let negative circumstances rule.

Finances Sept. 15

Finances Sept.15

When finances get you down, start saying a prayer over every bill you send that it becomes used to help others as a living event in the kingdom for God’s glory. Even if you’ve spent the funds unwisely, pray the pay back will redeem both you and others.

Reader Prayer: Lord, help me remember, all finances are yours and they are an extension of the self.

The Cosmos Sept.14

The Cosmos Sept.14

The whole creation waits eagerly for you to be revealed because you have trusted Me. The world yearns for redemption like a parent aches for a child. The creation was restrained by the will of the Creator because the process adds to the hope of freedom from bondage. You move toward freedom from ruin and decay, toward honest participation in the glory of the Father. As a child of God, part of you groans along with creation because you wait for your final position as adopted into the kingdom. All creation will be saved that is supposed to be saved.

Reader Prayer: Thank you Lord, that you re-created us when you gave us the Holy Spirit.

Spiritual Eyes Sept.13

Spiritual eyes Sept.13

You are truly blessed because you see what I teach you. You see the kingdom of the Father. In older days, kings and prophets wanted to see what you see but could not. They wanted to hear what you hear but could not. They wanted to feel what you feel but could not. You have the Holy Spirit’s presence to guide you always. Depend on Him.

Prayer: Lord help us to remember, the Holy Spirit remains always our school within our hearts.

Good Action Sept.12

Good action Sept.12

You have seen in Luke 8 how I healed the Gaderene from many demons. He wanted to journey with the disciples and Me. I told him to go back home and tell them what God had done. This man had on borrowed clothes to shield his earlier nakedness. He had been the cause of several pigs receiving the demons and dying. Do you know what he did? He could now go home and find work to pay for the clothes and the pigs. This can be your testimony to the world. The kingdom principles of kindness, of putting back and giving when you don’t have to go the extra mile, remain your goals.

Prayer: Lord I pray for balance in all things, but with my footing on your solid ground.

Compassion Blockers Sept.11

Compassion blockers Sept.11

Compassion must start with other centeredness. Resentment, envy or anger, coveting, or fear can throw up roadblocks to compassionate growth. Practice taking one day every week and do something nice for everyone you meet. Give some money; say a kind word; smile; compliment; do some good action and do not expect any thanks in return. Extend the action to two days. Stretch the days so your goal happens every week. Blessed are the merciful.

Reader Prayer: Lord, help any passion I have turn to compassion when needed.

False Service Sept.10

False service Sept.10

Beware of becoming inefficient from over activity of what others may think goodwill. They can rob you of your time with Me. In My name, say NO. Although you do not see one of My challenges, remember, your certain quest remains yourself. Keep seeking My spiritual insights.

Reader Prayer: Keep me, Lord, seeking the right things for the kingdom sake

Good verses bad Sept.9

Good verses bad        Sept.9

Your capacity to love God the Father will point to your ability to hate evil. If you try to hate the evil without the right love, you enter a self-righteousness that tends to break Our clear fellowship. When you enter some action, major on love. If you err, do so, on the side of My loving power.

Prayer: Oh Heavenly Father, teach me today to maintain love more than I cherish any hate.

Friday, September 7, 2012

Clear Perspective Sept.8

Ask specifically today for clear insight and courage of discovery to see yourself openly. You may be trying to cloak resentments with garments of piety. Any resentment or subtle anger will gain a foothold in your life and ruin any purpose. Do not harbor any pretense, but be completely honest with yourself and others. The great I AM vibrates within you.

Reader Prayer: Lord, help me today to be truly honest about being honest.

Endurance Sept.7

Endurance Sept.7

Because you have the ability to foresee, you have a great capacity to solve problems that happen and you are more than your present circumstances suggest. You can move into what you can become. For instance, an animal may run to a dead end cliff, either stop or fall off. You may run to the same dead end and try to figure how to build a bridge across. The Father gave you the capacity to rework your conditions. Keep enduring and use Me as your guide.

Prayer: Lord, help me stay completely guided by your Spirit in my mind, emotions, spirit and body.

Thursday, September 6, 2012

Self Control Sept.6

Self Control        Sept.6

Remember, faithfulness and self-control remain fruits of My Spirit. The Spirit gives strength. He will amplify your trust quality. He can give you perfect power of silence along with your self-control. Then, you are not to judge the hearts of others, but you can have a part to manage better decisions for them.

Reader Prayer: Lord, especially remind me today to bridle my tongue.

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

Competence Sept.5

Competence Sept. 5

      If you appear competent to yourself and others based on some human excellence, then you have only the potential of all a human can do. The Holy Spirit writes upon the tablet of your human heart. If you draw your capability from Me and I have it from the Father, you may claim extraordinary proficiency. I have made you complete as a bearer of the New Covenant. I remain an assurance of the Spirit who gives life abundantly. You may proceed with self-assurance. Others may call you vain or haughty, but stay in the confidence of the Spirit.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, remind me daily that I am more than the sum of my parts.

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

My Love Sept.4

Love   Sept.4

In My kingdom, you may:

Love the self for self’s sake.
Love another for self’s sake.
Love the Father for the self’s sake.
Love the Father for the Father’s sake.
Love the Self for the Father’s sake.
Love Me for love’s sake.

My Holy Spirit purifies all love.

Reader Prayer: Lord, help me to understand the depth of love in all its forms.

Sunday, September 2, 2012

Wasted Days Sept. 3

Wasted Days Sept. 3

Remember, no day remains totally wasted when you have been even a minor part in enhancing the Kingdom on earth, such as a word spoken, a spiritual truth discovered, or a simple deed done. Results are My domain. Logic of it all stays My mystery. Connections are My concern. You just LIVE aware.

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, that the Kingdom vibrates now and not just in the future.

Secure Sept. 2

Secure          Sept. 2

You have a place, an individual position that remains yours alone. It lingers as a hiding place and continues as a location of rest, overshadowed by the most High. Bathed and covered with love, no one can go there but you. I am there with you always.

Reader Prayer: Lord, remind me every day to enter that secret hiding place you have for Me.

Saturday, September 1, 2012

Grace Sept.1

Grace           Sept. 1

My Grace excels human expectations. My Grace remains completely capable. Actively plant your salvation where needed and water with a grateful spirit. The power of Who I AM will develop the fruit.

 Prayer: Thank you Lord that it was your Grace that gave me faith in the first place to believe in you.
