Grace Energy Jan.31

Grace Energy                    Jan. 31
        There exists a quality of person-hood, like an emotion, that runs deeper than pain or pleasure. It expresses itself as a longing after the things of God. You must work with conscious effort to recognize and cultivate this longing. It vibrates deeply within and swells up from within. Pray, meditate, study My words, speak to Me as a friend; whatever it takes to nurture the yearning. For it is at this point that the Holy Spirit can mesh with your spirit. It becomes the true motivator for the kingdom of heaven. It exhibits the authentic life flow of Grace. 

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, that your Grace covers us one day at a time and on into the future.

Time Principle Jan.30

Time Principle                  Jan. 30
        People were not made for the Sabbath; the Sabbath was made for people. People were not made for Time, but Time was made for people. Have you not noticed that two special moments cannot run side by side at the same time, but must follow one another in succession? Why? Why is time on this earth linear? Herein remains one of the Father’s secrets. Time as you know it is step by step because in any given moment, any given minute, any given second, any given blink of an eye, I the Son of God, can break through and save since I am Jesus. My creation has strayed. I come to set it back on the right path. One day all will be back to completion and time as you experience will cease. Every moment may count for the kingdom. What does this mean for you? It means do all you can, with any resource you have, with any gift you possess, whenever you can, to help the fellowship of God. You must trust that ANY moment you plant a seed will grow into a forest for ME. And remember that planting a seed may be an actual answer to someone else’s prayer.

Prayer: Lord, help me remain the seed-sower you want today.

Reality Jan.29

Reality             Jan.29
        The door to Me as reality promotes exposure. Talk to Me. Learn love of Me. Think with Me. Know Me. Discuss Me with others. See how I fit life. I am in you. I have told you to love your neighbor as yourself. But, you must possess the right kind of love. If you love with only self-love, you miss the point. Self-love only wants something in return. You need love I give. It is other-love. You are to love as I have loved you. To love with the Heavenly Father’s love remains other–love, unconditional even when not deserved. You can learn love.

Prayer: Lord, keep me learning your other-centered love efforts.

True Giving Jan.28

True Giving                       Jan.28
        The highest plane of giving requires you give yourself away at every point you can: your relationships, your time, your resources, your care. When you learn true giving in your spirit and then give, you can give any of your resources to those in need. Even if they do not merit such gifts, give anyway, like the all giving Heavenly Father. If you just give out of habit or duty, then the kingdom is not enhanced. It may be a worthy practice, but true giving always has a piece of you in it.

Prayer: Lord, help me give in ways that further your kingdom path.

Pray to See Jan.27

Pray to See                    Jan.27
        Pray to see the graciousness of the Trinity in One, who sustained a different beauty than just earthly beauty. A peculiar attractiveness comes when you connect with Me. Your awe and wonder will be enhanced. Pray to see the beauty. Pray to have the faith in My love through any dealings with others. The world will confuse and distort My creation, so you must see with different eyes. Look not only at the harshness of this world, but with the eyes of faith, search for the Spirit that dwells among you, the beauty and harmony of the Godhead.

Prayer: Oh Lord, I do indeed want to see the special beauty you have provided.

Worldly Obstacles Jan.26

Worldly Obstacles                     Jan. 26
        Saying my name “Jesus” removes the worldly obstacles and reminds you clearly that I am always with you.  When you call my name, it does not invoke some demand for Me to come to you from some other activity I’m involved in.  Nothing you do or don’t do really separates us, only your refusal to pay attention. You do not have to force my presence with prayer, sacrifice, or behavior. The Holy Spirit patiently waits to do the work. Just practice My reality in your life. Let Me go with you everyday, like a constant unseen companion.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for your ever present reality. Help me see your directives.

Fullness Jan.25

Fullness                    Jan.25

The key to abundant living reveals an energy of paying attention to every detail in life. My Holy Spirit blends with you to give energy reserve. Opportunities abound in the ongoing kingdom realm. I am the Maker and Structure. You are My display window.

Prayer: Lord, for us to be your window seems amazing. Thank you and help me see the opportunities you bring.

Cooperative Plan July24

Cooperate Plan                 Jan.24
        You may begin each day knowing you are not alone. Practice My presence in the great or small. Expect Me to be there. I AM. Put into place small experiences to remind of My presence. Walk with Me as an invisible friend. Place Me in an empty chair in the room. Let Me sit beside you when you pay bills.  Ask often: Am I there? Am I in that situation?  Make Me become tangible in the seeming intangible. I am not the rock, the tree, the wind, or the water. But I am the Creator of those and am behind all of them. Watch closely how I relate to them and how I relate to you.

Prayer: Lord, give me eyes to see your presence today and respond accordingly.

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Faith Jan.23

Faith                         Jan.23
        Now I have shown in my word that faith vibrates as being certain of what you longed for and sure of what you do not see.  With Me, what may be seen is not made out of what is visible. If you want Me to speak well of any of your offerings after you have gone, be sure to give them away in faith. Faith does not over-control or designate too much.

Prayer: Lord, may my faith continue in you with all endeavors.

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Giving Jan.22

Giving                       Jan.22
Practice living a gift economy. Give in everything.  Learn to give power, potential, healing, consolation, insight as well as the more obvious time, talent, money. The point is never to try to equal My giving. You will never out-give Me, the giver of all life. Still, a generous heart and spirit continually helps to set people free.

Prayer: Lord help me to help others stay free in you.

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Obedience Jan.21

Obedience                        Jan.21
     Look at all your relationships and intentionally move into all of them with Me, the Christ. Whether you consider a church, family member, business, school, neighbor, or unknown persons in a foreign land. Avoid plans you have made without divine thought. Re-do any planning that you and I may work together.  Choose to give tangible evidence to all people, by letting them know something happens to you when you walk with Me.

Prayer: Lord, I know you want the best for us. Forgive us when we use our stubborn will and refuse to obey your gracious will already in place.

Seek Jan.20

Seek                                 Jan.20
        When I told My disciples to seek first the kingdom, I referred to the real kingdom guidelines I spoke in Matthew 5. Start by understanding what it means to become spiritually prosperous by being poor in spirit, bankrupt in spirit. Stay with that one until illumination occurs, then move to those that mourn. You will see that all these can link together as interlocking principles. Walk through the nine principles as often as you can. Choose them in your everyday events. You must understand this kingdom journey to fully participate in My kingdom servant hood.

Prayer: Lord, we submit to you and want to know how to serve in every opportunity through any given day.

Character Jan.19

Character                         Jan.19
        Remember, because you are made in the image of God, nothing in the world is more precious than human character. Art is not greater. Money is not greater. Great literature can never rise above human personality. Life presents the highest element for the highest revelation. I, your Lord, come that you might have life. If you want to leave a true legacy, leave behind a clear imprint of a value-living, Christ-centered character.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for reminding me what’s important and let me leave behind a God-inspired life.

Prayer Timing Jan.18

Prayer Timing                   Jan.18
        The moment you see a wrong or if someone behaves wrongly toward you, this establishes your cue to pray for that situation. I will bring to your consciousness that for which needs prayer, even when you are not paying attention. My Spirit will bear witness with your spirit continually.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for your abundant willingness to fill in the gaps of our human frailty.

Freedom Jan.17

Freedom                   Jan. 17
        When the Father created the first human, He limited himself and allowed a seed of his free will to enter the dirt that became Adam. The true life essence of a person contains a basic freedom. The Father knew by allowing free will into humanity was indeed a costly risk. It is not unlike when people decide to birth a child.  They are never totally certain what they will produce. But the Father knew and took the risk, birthed Adam and Eve and sure enough, got His heart broken. Nothing but a special love could have done this. But this exhibits a strong point of a relationship I have with you. We bridge together the joys and heartaches in order to be one.

Prayer: Thank you Lord, for caring so deeply for us when we do not deserve your gracious love.

Another Mystery Jan.16

Another Mystery               Jan. 16
        I show you a mystery. Because every human is made in the image of God, this is the entryway for the kingdom of the Father. I revealed this to the Pharisees in Lk.17:20-21, but they did not accept it. You see, since I came, My kingdom is in everyone, but everyone is not yet in the kingdom. Those that accept Me are in and of the kingdom and are guided by kingdom rules. Those not in and of the kingdom are frustrated because they go against My guidelines. When I said I am the Way, the Truth, the Light, the Door, I was referring to the full entryway into the kingdom. While the kingdom is available to everyone, each has to choose to enter by Me. You are to help people recognize the kingdom principles and help them enter through Me.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for putting your word in our hearts and helping us see we just need to look for them.      [Author’s note: see also Heb. 8:10-11, Rom.14:17-18].

Planning Jan.15

Planning                                Jan.15
        You do not need to over plan. I am the Lord of your life. The Father has created a moral universe. Every guide, law, principle remains in place. You do not have to create the laws in order to live well in the universe. Simply discover them. Even an unseen force like gravity stays valuable as a moral law, promoting balance. Behave as I have instructed you and let Me plan for your harmony in the present and future. I am your guide and protector. What evil persons, those out of harmony, may do to you, I can shield or undo. Endeavor to think of Me throughout the day. I am always here.

Prayer: Lord, keep us aware of the moral, heavenly laws behind every one of your laws on earth.

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Assurance Jan.14

Assurance                             Jan.14
   Be sure to measure the worth of things you spend time on. There are things worth living for and things worth dying for. The peace I give does pass all understanding and is yours from now on. If you allow fear, doubt or worry of this world to creep in, then the peace and harmony of the Kingdom get interrupted. Experience each difficulty as an opportunity to exercise your eternal peace. I, the Lord, am with you.

 Prayer: Lord, help me practice peace just like I form any other good habit.

Monday, January 13, 2014

Thankfulness Jan.13

Thankfulness            Jan.13
        When negative obstacles come into your everyday life, use praise to remove them. When I, the Lord, said you could remove mountains with the right faith, the sure method for this is to offer praise and honor. Keep saying thank you for the blessings you already have. This allows room for the Holy Spirit to promote the generous heart of the Father.

Prayer: Lord, help me to continue an attitude of praise, even when I do not feel the emotion. Thank you.

Sunday, January 12, 2014

Timing Jan.12

Timing                      Jan.12
        Time will come when trusting requires patience and longer waiting. In this, you are to be calm, be still and listen for My voice, My impression of the Father’s will. The answers will come but in the form of chosen faithful endurance while I work out details you are unaware. Then, there comes another trusting. When you are certain your spirit agrees with My Spirit, then the time is right to claim the resource in My Name. You may command it so- - - not demand it, but say with assurance, “let it be done”.  You are My joint heir and have access to all the riches of the kingdom and of this earth as well.

Prayer: Lord, move me today to that reassurance that I can ask anything in your name.

Saturday, January 11, 2014

Anger Jan.11

Anger               Jan.11
        I, the Lord, do not get angry with you. I can have a kind of disappointment in your behavior, but anger is nothing more than hostile fear, a negative human emotion. In your soul, when fear gets tired, it turns hostile, turning first outward, and then reversing to turn inward. Anger in you fights against the peace I’ve given. That is why I said in 1 John that perfect love casts out fear. Accept My Love and trade your weaker emotion of anger for the better emotion of strong peace. Much more energy and power reside in peace than in fear. Remember, the opposite of fear stands faith.

Prayer: Oh Lord, help us today with your shield of faith because anger creeps in on us so secretly we often miss it.

Action Jan.10

Action               Jan.10
        You ask: “How am I to live each day to practice growing the kingdom of the Father?”  You do not have to look so far.  Meet some need of your neighbor. Any person might become your neighbor. Any act laced with kindness, mercy, helpfulness, good cheer, polite participation or caring response can be a testimony of My goodness in the world. Even meet diversity with those ingredients to help chisel and mold your own character for the kingdom of the Father.

Prayer: Lord, help me pay attention to one specific opportunity I encounter today to complete any Christ-like action.

Method Jan.9

Method                     Jan.9
        When you feel like I am questioning or criticizing you, I am not always inquiring about your values or motivation. Look to the circumstance as well. I may be having you stop to think about the method. Your agitation may be because you have not first rested in Me to hear the method or strategy of the Father. As is written in Isaiah 30:15, “In repentance and rest is your salvation...”  Let not your heart be too troubled. As you trust in the Father; you trust in Me to teach you.

Prayer: Lord, help me remain teachable in all things.

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Small Prayers Jan.8

Small Prayers           Jan.8
        Wait not for the large issues of life. Pray for what seems small. Pray for those who need traveling mercies, who need to sell a house, who need guidance in school, who have changes in their jobs, who got a speeding ticket. Nothing is too small because I, your Lord, am interested in all life events. They are opportunities for My kingdom principles to grow in someone. You may not know who, but your prayer can hold like a well placed cement column, holding up part of the bridge. All things DO work together.

Prayer: Oh Lord, keep me strong to remain a standing bridge for the kingdom.  

Waiting Jan.7

Waiting               Jan.7
  You do not serve some reluctant Father who holds back from his child because he’s not sure you deserve something you have asked. Delay may happen because you are all connected. Just as you must wait on a train to pass at a railroad junction, your delay may be because others need the resources of the train because they are on a different track of time. The Father has it all worked on His time schedule and since He is outside of your earthly time, you may seem inconvenienced. But, pay attention. Things are connected. When you have to wait, stop and reflect upon heavenly principles, then look for any divine connectors. Also, as you have to wait---talk to Me.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I do earnestly want to stay on the right track with you.

Monday, January 6, 2014

Harmony Jan.6

Harmony                      Jan.6
        One of the results of My coming to earth was to reveal the kingdom of the Father within the hearts of people. There exists no disharmony in this kingdom. Harmony means perfect pitch, perfect tone, perfect vibration, and perfect love with perfect resources. Do not look upon the kingdom with earthly judgments. If you lack power, you are off track from the kingdom principles. Seek the treasured guides of the kingdom and you will find.

Prayer: Lord, I am openly seeking the channels of your kingdom today.

Saturday, January 4, 2014

Maturity Jan.5

Maturity                       Jan.5
        You only mature by the genuine responses to the Father’s Grace. You may grow naturally and that shows essential maturity. But you become more mature by responding to divine grace that distributes faith liberally. Then, the faith helps you become a channel for other works of grace coming down from the Father. His grace has the quality that if you had started something important and you died before you could finish it, He would give you full credit as if you had. Grace allows the seed to count as much as a flower.

Prayer: Lord, help me in seed planting every chance I get.

Potential Jan.4

Potential                      Jan.4
        Pride breeds arrogance. Arrogance breeds self-centeredness. Self-centeredness breeds loneliness. Loneliness breeds despair. This remains the human downward cycle based upon any idea that all potential resides in the self alone. It is too limiting. Look to Me, your Savior. I am larger in potential than any human self.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for the plus quality of the Holy Spirit.

Friday, January 3, 2014

Future Jan.3

Future                           Jan.3
        Anticipate not the future, but look forward to the everyday adventure with Me. You have been chosen to see more clearly than others. Let that sight not be riddled with doubt of future but be assured I Am with you now as your partner. I guide when you pay attention to My words. To fellowship with Me establishes the present with the Father in its fullness. Each day, one at a time, matters. Each day can be new.

Prayer: Lord, help me feel the newness of the day and know you are there.

Thursday, January 2, 2014

Absorb Jan.2

Absorb                Jan.2
        You have read in Matthew's Gospel, “Blessed are the peacemakers”. What does it mean? There are many applications, but one important meaning. More prosperous are those who can absorb the anger of others and then show the love of the Father. Instead of reacting with anger of your own, you can return power to fight anger, by choosing for My sake, to present new love energy for others to combat their anger/fear.

Prayer: Lord, help me to take in another’s anger with peace that comes from your Spirit.

Wednesday, January 1, 2014

Forgiveness Jan.1

Forgiveness                          Jan.1
        Because you are forgiven by the Father, you must learn to forgive. I do not ask you to forgive another’s behavior. You can never do this because the self gets in the way. This is why I say, “Crucify the self daily”. When you start to dwell upon the hurts others have caused you, pride steps in. You will feel injustice and become too critical. This will not allow forgiveness. So I ask you to die to the self, full of false pride, and replace it with Me. Forgive the essence of others. Forgive their not knowing what they do. Forgive because I am forgiveness. Let Me judge the behavior. You learn to love even when persons are unpleasant.

Prayer: Lord, help me to begin this New Year with the kind of forgiving attitude that most honors you.
