Love Maturity Oct.5

Love Maturity                    Oct.5

The Bible exists not just as a book of theories and themes. It remains a book of factual truth. Someone once said that things are not true because they are in the Bible, but they are in the Bible because they are true. The magnificence of My love isn’t just found in a love object, but in the thought and act of loving. You are not only to love scripture for its own sake but because the words bring you into My presence and I represent all truth. Scripture becomes your food to help you stay longer in My presence. My beingness is the energy of life. Think of the large tree that comes from a tiny seed because the life force germinates growth. You are the seed, scripture the enduring growth source. As your Savior I am the enlarging power to produce maturity. A full blown blossom stays a love expression from the Father. A full blown Christian is a love expression of the Son’s beauty.

Prayer: Thank you, Lord. Just thank you.

The Difference Oct.4

The Difference                  Oct.4

The sole difference in My being able to work certain powers in your life has to do with recognition. Maintain conscious effort every day in remembering that I, the Christ, can be honored by the little things as well as the large. Your perception, attitude and ability to rest in Me make all the difference. Pay attention to where My Spirit keeps working. There I will be.

Prayer: Give me spiritual eyes to see your working, Lord.

Practice My Presence Oct.3

Practice My presence                Oct.3

If you will fully believe that all things really are held together by Me and that I can be the source and sum of all you do, then every practical behavior and action can be praise to the Father. Your breathing, your eating, your beingness, your every cell belongs to you because of Me. So when you experience any of these, they can serve as conscious acts of praise and honor to Me and the kingdom.

Prayer: Lord, let everything I do glorify your name some way.

Influence Oct.2

Influence                          Oct.2

You may not see what is left behind from your involvement with others. But because I give you everlasting principles that sustain heaven as well as earth, your influence will also be eternal. Each word or act in My name gives off cosmic energy that outlasts earthly time. Stay alert to what you say and do every day.

Prayer: Lord, I stand amazed that something I might say could last eternity. Let The Holy Spirit filter my mouth.

Criticism Oct.1

Criticism                           Oct.1

Simply refuse to criticize anyone. Pray instead. Keep your value of sensitive caring turned toward others. Let any tough-minded thoughts stay within yourself, but do not be too hard on yourself. Forgive at the point of your hardness and do not overly criticize.

Prayer: Forgive us Lord. It is too easy to pass judgment upon other people and their behavior.

Find Distinction Sept.30

Find Distinction             Sept. 30

Go out and do a specific act that only a genuine Christian would do.

Prayer: Lord, help me pay attention to do what you ask with any of my behaviors.

True 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.

Sunday, September 28, 2014

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.

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

Saturday, September 27, 2014

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.

Friday, September 26, 2014

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.

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

Thursday, September 25, 2014

Your Control Sept.25

Your Control                Sept.25

When I walked with My twelve disciples and ate grain 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.

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Perspective Sept.24

Perspective            Sept. 24

From now on, do not view any person from a worldly point of view. See each person 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 I can make in My love.

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

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

The Small Effort Sept.23

The Small Effort                        Sept.23                       

Every little gem of wisdom I pass on 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.

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 gave Myself for you.

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


Sunday, September 21, 2014

Mixed Values Sept.21

Mixed Values              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. But I say to you, 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.

Saturday, September 20, 2014

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  Me, who cared not for any reputation and took service as My method to conquer? You need only holy ambition that buries itself in serving others for the kingdom’s sake.

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.

Friday, September 19, 2014

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 and daily  to make the trade.

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

Thursday, September 18, 2014

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 you who possess the kingdom, the kingdom possesses you.

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.

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

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

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.  

Monday, September 15, 2014

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.

Prayer: Lord, help me remember, all finances are yours and they are extensions of our personalities.

Sunday, September 14, 2014

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.

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

Saturday, September 13, 2014

Spirit Insight Sept.13

Spirit Insight                        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 within to guide you always. Give Him notice and depend on Him.

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

Friday, September 12, 2014

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 wonder 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.

Thursday, September 11, 2014

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.

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

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

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 significant quest remains your own growth and legitimate causes for others. Keep seeking My spiritual insights.

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

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Good versus bad Sept.9

Good versus bad        Sept.9

Your capacity to love God the Father will point to your evaluation of hating 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.     

Monday, September 8, 2014

Clear Perspective Sept.8

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.

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

Sunday, September 7, 2014

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.      

Saturday, September 6, 2014

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.

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

Friday, September 5, 2014

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, show me often I am more than the sum of my parts.

Thursday, September 4, 2014

Any Love Sept.4

Any Love                              Sept.4
In My kingdom,   you may:
    Love the Father for the Father’s sake.
      Love the Self for the Father’s sake.
       Love the Father for the self’s sake.
        Love the self for self’s sake.
         Love another for self’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. 

Wednesday, September 3, 2014

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 functions now and not just in the future.

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

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 Spirit. 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.    

Monday, September 1, 2014

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.
