Death Mar.31

Death                    Mar.31

       Death is an intruder. It can strike like lightning or be as slow as running oil. The direction remains unpredictable. It is a painful reminder of your mortality. I, Jesus, know the pain with you. We are strugglers together in the time of uprooting surprise. But after the crushing darkness, a healing light will break through. This will be a reminder that I have overcome the Intruder. The Father stays merciful, for that you can depend.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for giving us beauty and life to overcome death.

Trust as Adventure Mar.30

Trust as Adventure        Mar.30

       What if a friend said he wanted to take you on an exciting adventure, but did not tell you all the details? As you traveled you became anxious and afraid your resources would run out. He kept saying all expenses were his. All will be all right. All was planned, just enjoy the trip. Could you let go of control?
       I, your, Lord Savior am your friend. Learn to wait and trust for today. Let us proceed on the adventure together.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for the spark of life that makes the living of it worth it all.

Learning Mar.29

Learning                        Mar.29
       Pay attention to all those around you. Prov.27:17. You will learn from others, just like iron sharpens iron. Even pay attention to your interruptions.  They may come from the Spirit. Awareness without faith and understanding tends to produce fear and distrust. Stay ready and alert to the Spirit’s movements.

Prayer: Lord, help me be patient with the disruptions of life.

What Next?

What Next?             Mar.28

       Micah 6:8.  I, the Lord, remind you what I require of you: to do what is just, to show constant love, and to live in humble fellowship with the Father. His justice is His mercy and His mercy is His Justice. There exists no contradiction. His love sees to that. Fellowshipping completes the link. As you speak to Me, take time to listen back.

Prayer: Lord, help me to balance mercy and justice by your ever present guidance.

Mystery of Disease Mar.27

Mystery of Disease                Mar.27
                  The Father is willing that none should perish, but there exists disease. And yet, the Father heals all disease. You see, there are unique disease qualities. One is attitudinal and functions more from the mind. Perception and conditioning create illness from environment and circumstance. These are event illnesses, functional in nature.
                  Other diseases of the body, like cancer, attack the very body structure. These are at least treated, if not cured, by medicines, surgeries, or technology.
                  Then, combinations exist of illness which attack mind, body and spirit. These are so complex that often one area gets treated only to have another area destroy.
                  You may see a miracle or not. But, remember, when a cure does not happen as you thought, the Father has provided a final cure in your resurrection.
                  At times I ask you to live in the holy tension and let mystery stay a mystery. The Father’s ways are not always your ways.

           Prayer: Lord, I accept your healings in whatever form they take.

True Faith Mar.26

True Faith              Mar.26
                  The future may stay hidden from you because Faith remains too precious a commodity to trade in for acquired knowledge.
       When you seek revelation, let it be for more faith kind of knowledge in Me, your Lord. Search the Bible more. Still, true Faith remains sometimes living with non-answers.

Prayer: Lord, increase my faith and understanding in all my endeavors.

Messiah Mar.25

Messiah                         Mar.25
My needs are different than yours.
Yet, do I, the Messiah, have need? I am holy Solitude.
           You need solitude.
           I am Love. You need love.
           I am the Father’s affirmation. You need affirmation.
We remain companions in the kingdom on earth. Walk and talk with me.

Prayer: Lord, the one thing I know for sure stays constant that I need you every day.  

Courage Mar.24

Courage                Mar.24
    There exists a connectedness to all things. I know them all. Many are praying for you that you know not of. Trust in Me. Treasures of the kingdom will come to you: Hope, Assurance, Joy, Security, and Rest. Your courage reminds My heart to give. I, your Lord, have planned your journey.

Prayer: Lord, continue to offer us courage in these struggling days.

All Forgiven Mar.23

All forgiven           Mar.23
                 I, the Lord Holy Spirit, flow through you, washing away the negative past, like fresh rain cleansing a brook. Let the flow happen. Build not dams of past regret, remorse, or guilt. All remains forgiven since you asked.

           Prayer: Lord, thank you for your forgiveness past and present.

Saturday, March 22, 2014

Trust Mar.22

Trust                     Mar.22
Trust Me for everything . . . not just some of the religious things.
       Does not a good parent pave the way for a child? Does not a concerned parent provide food, clothing, and shelter, any reasonable and possible desire? Jehovah had Me, Jesus. I remain a partner with you. I provide all for you.
       The Father will even supply your finances, especially if you direct all your resources into understanding His gift economy. He gives not to receive, but to spread enrichment. Work to arrange your finances so you can give unreservedly.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for any abundance that comes from you.

Rest Mar.21

Rest                      Mar.21
                  Rest in My words . . . for they have the power to put into action what they actually say. And lo, I am with you always.
       Your task requires you make Me real. I will carry out the work in you. How do you make me real? Practice My presence daily. Talk to Me daily in your self-talk. Discuss with Me every little detail, no matter how ordinary it may seem. The Holy Spirit remains your constant friend, always with you.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for the constant guide of the Holy Spirit.

Beauty Mar.20

Beauty                   Mar.20
       I, Jesus, will carry any load for you. Do not be like the person who struggles and becomes weary carrying a heavy load along the road, when all the while being robbed of good humor and the beauty all around because of being tired and burdened.
       When trying to bear your own burdens alone . . . a tree, a flower, a bird--- all become obstacles in your path.
       When you turn to Me to help bear your burdens: a tree displays life of resurrection, a flower becomes the beauty of divine creative goodness, a bird produces the music of God’s creation.
       Ask for Me to walk alongside you and all of life comes generously alive.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for reminding me to take pleasure in all the little things of your creation.

Remember Mar.19

Remember            Mar.19
No other religion or celebration can claim the unlimited grace the Father gives to any who would receive. Whenever you start to feel His grace draining away from you, pride sneaks in to take its place. Accept His word that His graciousness remains available. Let the refinement of His grace warm your inside like sun on your face. You must trust.

Prayer: Thank you Lord, for without your Grace we would be nothing.

A Parable Mar.18

A Parable              Mar.18
       Remember the parable of the Sower in Mt. 13. Most emphasize the Sower and the seed. But think about the ground. There was the shallow path; the birds ate the seed. There stood the rocky places; not much soil. Some seed fell among ground with thorns, which choked the good plants, but then some fell among good soil where good crops produced. You need to ask: What makes the difference in the soil?
       The Holy Spirit gives Love (faith), Joy (laughter), and Peace (openness) to plough and cultivate the soil. You also help cultivate the way you live your life.

Prayer: Lord, may I remain the right soil for kingdom growth.

Heavenly Stories Mar.17

Heavenly Stories           Mar.17
       If while in heaven, you had the chance to tell each angel a story of your experiences and each would hear it as new and each angel could feel the experience, would you be able to share events that called for your best potentials? Would those episodes establish worth in eternity? 
       A significant goal remains when you see what you are potentially, then, this begins to determine what you can become in actuality.

Prayer: Lord, help me to overcome any past and set my mind upon the possibility of what can happen for the kingdom.

What is Right? Mar.16

What is Right?               Mar.16

       The end and object of any work to which the Father can commit Himself must end in His glory. Any work needs to answer the question: Does the work bring glory to the Father or to individuals only?  There exists a divine principle: The greater a work’s true value to the Father, the less human gratification. Any work becoming effective in the divine purpose must be conceived by the Father. See my word in Eph.1: 12. 

Prayer: Lord, help us remember to attempt our best efforts to bring glory to your Son in any of our personal works.

Unimpaired Contentment Mar.15

Unimpaired Contentment               Mar.15     
James 1:4 shows insightful consideration. If you can feel content in your will for all that the Father does, then that peculiar ease becomes the substance of all your perfection. You may then vibrate in love, faith, grace and endurance. You can reach unlimited contentment as a God given strategy for living.

Prayer: Lord, I do pray to recognize any defects that would hinder the kingdom of God and I will walk closely on your path.

Rare Patience Mar.14

 Rare Patience                        Mar.14
          Because of your earthly, linear time that continues straight ahead, many holy desires actually grow by delays. If your concerns seem to diminish by delay and lose specific momentum, they may have entered a different time frame or may not have been holy in the first place.
        Prayer: Lord thank you for reminding me our time is not the same as your heavenly time. Increase our patience.

Soul Need Mar.13

Soul Need                      Mar.13

       Sometimes you hunger for solitude, a time to float, collect self or make quiet the internal noise of your everyday strivings. At the same time, you wish for like-minded souls to whom identity happens, those who create feelings of community. When you have too much solitude, you cry out for community. When too much community exists, you thirst for solitude. For your soul’s sake, breed contentment by focusing on a deliberate balance. You choose the behavior.

Prayer: Lord, help me harmonize solitude and community today.

Do Angels Pray? Mar.12

Do Angels pray?            Mar.12

Some believe My angels have no need of praying. Let Me tell you, they remain in a constant state of what you call meditation and attitude of prayer, for they will to serve Me. Learn to pray like you breathe. It’s done best when you set aside your personal will.

Prayer: Lord, give me the will for constant praying.

Listen with Spiritual Ears Mar.11

Listen with Spiritual Ears        Mar.11

Heaven stays filled with angels and saints with new songs. Stretch your spiritual ears to hear the harmony of the chorus. Do some action to shut off the physical senses. The music extends to your world in the spiritual realm. The Father wants you to hear their peace.

Prayer: Lord, help me listen more deeply today, with my Spirit heart.

Forward Motion Mar.10

Forward Motion     Mar.10
       The Father, the great creator stays interested in forward movement. When spending life, you have three choices: backwards, status quo, forwards. Backwards means dwelling on past failures or accomplishments. To get hung in the status quo brings stagnation. Sometimes God will allow you certain sideways, lateral moves, but only so many. So when making decisions about your future, interpret solid Christian growth with forward movement, that is, a new adventure, like striving for a new potential, a specific goal to spiritual enrichment, anything to glorify God. The Holy Spirit wants to stretch your otherwise earthbound spirit.

Prayer: Lord, I know the present is yesterday’s future. Help me get ahead of the process and move forward in your kingdom goals.

Which Reality? Mar.9

Which REALITY?              Mar.9                                             
With every physical principle, there exists a spiritual equivalent.   Gen.1:1 and 2:1 promotes Creation came from nothing. Spiritual energy issues from the Father Himself and He was not created. Heb.11:3.  Everything made has come from the invisible. What does this have to do with you? You live in a processed world, that is; everything gets evaluated, measured and processed for its worth. How you view truth becomes very important. Two basic aspects of truth:  First, the physical reality occurs, for example, a chair.  Second, behind the actual physical, the idea of sitting remains. Millions of ideas and principles flood your world each day.  You are to grab hold of these and find channels to translate them into your world.  Your task includes making the intangible become tangible---the invisible become visible. The Father’s creative genius is in you. His Word strengthens your life-map for your own creations to glorify Him.

Prayer: Lord, help me today glorify your name with any of my ideas.

Life Today Mar.8

Life Today         Mar.8

What is the true purpose of your living in this world dimension?   

The world offers you adventure, some growth, some school.  But the Kingdom of God among the hearts of people becomes your true schoolroom. Each day class begins.  Each end of day brings rest, class can end. But the Holy Spirit does not rest as you do. He still teaches you in your sleep.

Prayer: Lord, help me learn any lessons you have for me.

Tired? Mar.7

Tired?                          Mar.7

How can you keep going sometimes when you’re so tired?

You have the power of the plus-factor from the grace of God. His limitless grace gives you faith and an energy reserve for your need to endure, get better, or reach some new potential for Him. The Holy Spirit’s reserve is yours for the asking.

Prayer: Lord, I ask today to feel any stored energy you have given.

Mistakes Mar.6

Mistakes           Mar.6

Can all your mistakes really be taken care of sufficiently? 

The scripture reveals the secret---forgiveness is the central core of love. Freedom follows closely. Any given day you can start over with fresh anticipation. I am with you.

Prayer: Lord, help me see beyond my errors just as you do.

Supreme Caretaker Mar.5

Supreme Caretaker                    Mar.5

“. . . entrusted with the secret things of God” [1Cor.4:1]

  Some ask what lurks behind the universe. What’s it all about? 
           What main secret did Apostle Paul keep?  

  I Am the I Am behind the cosmos. I Am a non-created Being who   watches you (the created) with complete attention. I do not         leave you in darkness but deliver light insight from the Father’s     written word.  

Prayer: Lord, thank you for giving us your word and answering the major questions of life.

Practice My Presence Mar.4

Practice My Presence             Mar.4
             “All things cohere in Him...” Col. 1:17
Believe that I, Jesus, can be the source and sum of all you do. Every practical behavior and action can be a praise to the Father‘s name. Your breathing, your eating, your essence, your actions---all are yours because of Him, thus, when you do these, they can serve as conscious acts of praise and honor to His name. Open recognition of this fact truly matters. Start each new day with conscious effort in remembering that I, the Christ, can be honored by the little things as well as the large. This makes all the difference in attitude and your ability to rest in the Father.  Pay attention to His Presence in small issues and you will hear His Spirit more often.

Prayer: I do praise your name for loving me unconditionally.

Revealed Divine Secret Mar.3

Revealed Divine Secret              Mar.3
       The secret of the Christian’s daily walk finds itself embedded in a magnificent quest.  The quest becomes energized for spiritual revitalization. You are to re-evaluate, renegotiate, and daily review the strategy of what the Father continues to do in your universe, your town, your home. What is the secret of what God is doing?  It is only a secret to confound the proud and haughty.  For you who search, God’s strategy becomes abundantly clear:  He birthed a world; He birthed a Son; He continues now birthing a new group of people.  This new line of people has a special redemptive view of this planet, the universe with other galaxies and even the dimension called infinity.  All things are to be made new. The new people are to be called Christian, Christ followers, and as a part of this fellowship of concern, you are to learn to out-think, out-love, out-suffer, out-perform, out-do those who do not know Me, the Christ.  For you have the plus factor of the Holy Spirit to help you become a demonstration to a lost and hurting world. No other earthly challenge presents itself great enough to command all your potential. I alone can do that.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for letting me be a part of the new people.

Your Perception Mar.2

Your Perception                      Mar.2             
How you see life molds your present and future. A universal law suggests you cannot see one thing and produce something entirely different. So as a person thinks in heart, so establishes beingness.  Natural seeing remains different for each person.  One person may drive to town, seeing road signs and businesses. Another drives to town, seeing Desert Mountains and scrub trees. They both get to town with a different view of what the world looks like.  So, when I say, have eyes to see I’m talking about another kind of seeing, a view that has spiritual content, flavored with MY mind of Christ.  What is that flavor?  It has the main quality of Salt and Light, absorption and penetration. You must look beneath the obvious and see unlimited spirit at work.  In this striving to see “more than”, you will get glimpses of the Father.

Prayer: Lord, grant me eyes to see your Spirit desires in all things worthy of the kingdom.

Look Beside You Mar.1

Look Beside You                       Mar.1
“Lo, I am with you always”
     Accountability is not a harsh word. To hold you answerable is like a good parent holds a child, lovingly with only the best in mind. I AM not only with you in spirit, but standing beside you through all your experiences. I AM a very human Jesus who understands your weaknesses and who knows your difficulties and your need to overcome.
   Do not forget the reasons I came: to be a champion for the weak, to feed the hungry, to heal the sick, to set the captives free. My followers are taught to do these all and not just to friends but to everyone.
    To offer concern to the needy without an active remedy remains useless. Where the dynamic of your concern goes, you must go. Remember this when thinking of your own needs and the needs of others. The servant does not outrank the master. 
  So even in the midst of negative trials or outstanding joy, I will supply all your need, not reluctantly but with all abundance.
Prayer: Thank you Lord, for staying with us through all of life.
