Freedom and Trust

Cultivate in me a deeper appreciation for you, Father as I stand here amazed and in awe of how long and how far Your grace and love has carried me. My heart is filled with praise and thanksgiving as You draw me into a deeper level of trust in You.

I am ready for a greater level of freedom and stronger sense of clarity. Guide me, Father as I search for the beauty in all the ashes of my life. Nourish the seeds of trust in my heart, I long to put down the influences of this world in order to hear your instruction and distinguish you voice from all the noise.

Usher my footsteps in this endeavor to find the touch of your hand in all my broken memories and shattered dreams. Open the eyes of my heart through this experience to bring clarity and a new vision to see more than just a pile of destruction in the aftermath.

Build my trust and help my faith during this season of release, healing, and reconstruction. Fill my heart and spirit with strength and let the weight of Your glory tear down and remove old habits and strongholds. Shed Your light in all the dark crevices exposing all the areas of my life that keep me from experiencing more of You. Draw near to me and give me a steady spirit as you create a masterpiece of me that can only be built by Your perfect hands.

Purify my heart through this trial and time of testing, refine me, and bring me into total dependence on You and You alone.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33

A Call For Prophetic Intercession

I was given a dream months ago and today the Lord has asked me to release this word. Not to frighten but to prepare His Church. I saw a man who was smiling, and he was speaking to a large crowd. The crowd applauded and rejoiced at his message. The sky quickly turned dark crimson red and darkness came over this man. He ascended into the sky and transformed into an evil entity with a head full of serpents actively swarming around. “This man of perdition and son of sin revealed himself when he began to rise into the sky and exalt himself above all that is called God to sit and show himself as God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4)

he smiled in delight as the body of Christ began to erupt into chaos. The people were violent, seeking their leaders and fellow brothers but to spew words of hate, anger, division, and discord. The servants of God hid in fear and could not speak, could not cry out. They were paralyzed in fear.

I awoke from my dream and the Lord immediately whispered to me “the spirit of the antichrist is present and is attacking the church and the people of God” I put this out of sight and out of mind for several months as I waited to see what would unfold. I have been deep in prayer seeking the Lord about this and asking for revelation about this dream. I received a stirring in my spirit and was moved to draft this when I read another prophecy sent to me by a servant of God.

The Lord is saying to me: the spirit of the antichrist is already here, the serpents on his head are his agenda to sow hate, anger, division, discord, and destruction. His goal is to wage war on God’s chosen people and he is being strengthened by the devil himself and the false prophets. The false prophet is news source that is feeding us the division and discord and this spirit is having a field day poisoning our minds and our hearts. Many are being led astray as the trinity of evil is hard at work in its final attempts to oppose God’s divine and perfect plan.”

Warriors and servants of God it is time to come out of hiding. We do not need to run and hide in fear from the opinions, persecutions, and ridicules of mankind. The Lord goes before you and He will give you the strength and protection you will require in this hour. You have been given an assignment and a purpose to fulfil! Let us raise our voices and bring the down the heavens and the glory of God to earth. This is an urgent call for intercessory prayer, a call to speak the Word of God out loud, utilize your social media platforms and spread the good news of the gospel like wildfire! Let the voice of the Lord penetrate the noise and destruction that fills our newsfeed. Hold tight to the Word and use the power and authority He has given you. Steer clear of distractions and the enemy’s tactics to take your eyes off the real issue at hand. Keep your eyes focused on the one true source of all power and authority, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Let us prepare our hearts and make a path straight for Him, He is coming! HE is coming to set things right and take back the world and for which He died to save. He is coming to gather His army (His Church), and He is coming as the Mighty Fierce Warrior with the full wrath of God to annihilate the antichrist, satan, and his cohorts. He is coming to send these entities back to the gates of hell where they belong!! Prepare your hearts, HE IS COMING SOON and our Almighty God will be exalted and He will take His place as KING of this earth!

His Return is Near

Father, hear our prayer, with a heavy heart we are on our knees with hands lifted high as we praise your name and seek your voice. Quiet our soul, silence the noise as we draw near to you, give us ears to hear and eyes to see. Father, remind us all that we are first and foremost intercessors in Your mighty kingdom. Right now, I obediently lift up the leaders of our country in prayer, I place a hedge of protection over our President, his cabinet, and their families as they are faced with tough decisions and plenty of judgements and persecution. Let them feel a supernatural strength and give them wisdom as they are faced with tough decisions, because just as we are beginning to reopen our nation after a deadly virus that has left our country in shambles, we are faced with another crisis, a crisis of hate, racism, and division. A crisis that is bringing more destruction to an already fragile economy. A crisis that is destroying us a nation and as a community.

You have commanded us not to be terrified so give us courage, Lord because you have already warned us of these things that are transpiring, Your Word is being fulfilled right before our very eyes. Heavenly Father, give us an outpouring of wisdom so that we can keep watch over our tongue and bring it in align with how you have instructed us to live and to speak. Let us not grow cold to the events of that world that we become silent and numb, but if we must speak, Father help us be mindful of what we are sharing, expressing, and posting on our social media platforms. There are many people who are wounded, angered, and deeply disturbed by the current events unfolding. Our words and postings can tear down or they can build up, let us choose those things that speak life, bring comfort, build one another up, and bring us hope. Keep our eyes focused on you so that we don’t allow self-centeredness and bitterness to take root at a time when unity, love, and selflessness is desperately needed for healing. It is times like this when the condition of a person’s heart will be fully revealed, we are not to point fingers but rather recognize our own internal wounds and judgements that hinder us from seeking you and hinder us from speaking in a way that communicates the heart and nature of your son, Jesus Christ.

Father, I thank you for your mercy and grace, for the mistakes we have made and things we have done because we have operated out of anger and judgement and emotions that are not sanctified. Thank you for your forgiveness and give us the heart and capability to extend the same grace to others who have done and said things that have hurt or offended us. Continue to shine your light in all our dark places and continue to show us how much WE NEED YOU! We need you to speak to a hurting, scared world. We need you to win over a people who are watching us every day, We cannot do this without you, My Lord. Fill us with your Word, your ministry, and your instructions.

Deliver us from the spirit of division and racism. Division and racism are the works of the enemy, Division and racism is what destroys relationships, It is what destroys friendships, it destroys cities, and it destroys nations and a kingdom divided shall not stand. Division and racism breeds hate and destruction. So, If we must hate something, Father let us hate these things and not one another.

Begin a work of healing and restoration on our land and in the hearts of your people. Remove the roots of racism, bitterness, selfishness, and hate. Let us love one another deeply and guard our hearts so that we are not easily moved by the spirit of offense. Give us your words to speak, words that will comfort, exhort, and build up. Give us your words and give us Godly behaviors that will allow us to be a beacon of light during these times. Let us prepare our hearts, My King for the time is coming and your return is near.

Perfect Surrender

I find myself in a season of wandering, a season of searching for meaning and purpose.  My attempts to satisfy my soul with earthly accomplishments, go unfulfilled.  I walk with an emptiness and a void in my heart.  Fulfillment and satisfaction are far from me and I cannot find my life no matter how hard I try.  I am tired and I am defeated, my strength has failed me, my independence has failed me, my wit has failed me. I cannot go on this way, the memories and pain of my past are coming back and they are rushing into my heart and mind and breaking through all the walls and barriers I’ve built. My emotions are shaken, I portray someone who is unbreakable, but right now at this moment I am breaking.. I am breaking in my mind and in my heart.

Pardon my rebellion and the way I have ran away from you, My Lord.  But you know this is what I do when things get hard and when I have never had the ability to trust in anyone or anything.  My whole life has been one of survival, so I ask for your grace as I have never known to be dependent on anyone.   

I sit here weeping and I am desperate. Every tactic to survive and move past the wounds in my heart have failed. They are no longer effective and I can no longer mask the issues of my heart. I have nothing left so pull me from this pit of despair, My Lord.  I know you require no explanations nor will you issue any judgements, forgive my stubbornness and meet me here in my desperation. Embrace me in your perfect love and wash away the dirt and grime where I have fallen on my face time and time again in my efforts to find my own life and live my own way.  I had been searching for life and never found it because this entire time it has been hidden in you.

   Lord, deliver me from this darkness and this pain because I realize that If I am standing here today, choosing you, it is because you have chosen me first.  Deliver me from the turmoil in my life and the wounds in my soul.  My call to follow you is a call that is irrevocable because my life has never been my own. There is no turning back for me because I will not make it without you.  I will serve you all the days of my life, My King.  Give my heart a new song and give my tired soul life. Do this for me, for this is the first time in my life I have placed all my trust and dependence on you, I know you will come through for me because this is what you do, you rescue those who are broken-hearted and those who are crushed in spirit. My Lord, show me your glory, show me who you are and let me see your hand in my life, rescue me and I will live the rest of my days to tell of your goodness, to tell of your grace, and to tell of your unending love. 

You Will Be My People and I will be your God

I Am the Lord your God and you are My people. I declare My Covenant promises to you.  “I will create in you a new heart” says the Lord your God.  In your determination towards wholeness, you are beginning to see all the imperfections inside that require deliverance. You have given Me full access to the depths of your heart and My unconditional love is touching every desperate place inside you; My great love is bringing you a genuine transformation from the inside out.

In Faith you have placed your life in My hands, and I work tirelessly to tear down and root out the old nature and all its filth. A clean dwelling place is being built, a place where I can come and fellowship with you.  A place that will enable My Spirit to fall upon you; My Spirit will become one with yours so that I can reveal myself to you at a more intimate level. You will bloom like a flower in the desert and others will see the beauty that has blossomed in a place that was once dry and desolate. You will laugh, you will know joy, and you will enjoy life in all its fullness.

Like a soldier you have stood strong and unwavering in your faith, My breath has given you life and by My Spirit you have been resurrected.  You will no longer live in defeat, nor will you walk in shame and disgrace. In obedience you have placed My Truth at the forefront of your life, now watch Me as I begin to pour down blessing upon blessing. The time has come for you to stand up and take possession of your promise land. Right now, the covenant promises of prosperity are being released.  I will restore all that was lost and forfeited in your past obedience to sin.

 You will be established as a great nation under the order of your Almighty God. You have received My unmerited favor and I Am releasing an outpouring of grace and mercy upon your life. This restoration and increase in your life will be a powerful testimony to a watching world. It will proclaim My greatness and they will see the work of My powerful hand. This work will silence all blasphemers and those that ridicule Me because your walk in victory will speak to the truth that I Am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, I Am the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow and I Am indeed a covenant keeping God!

The Line Has Been Drawn

I have been in deep prayer and seeking God’s heart about the reopening of this economy. The Lord says, “If you seek me with all your heart you will find me.” I have a word:

In these uncertain and fearful times of the world, I am close, and I draw near to you. Give yourself wholly unto Me in prayer and give Me your full trust as you are witnessing the fulfillment of My Word and unfolding of My Truth. Take no notice of the noise and distractions of your surroundings. During this time of turmoil and discord seek Me with all your heart, and I will make Myself known to you. I shall make My face shine upon you; I will be gracious and grant you My peace. You will see and taste My goodness as you keep your eyes focused solely on Me.

A time of great tribulation has come but remember to whom you belong. You have been appropriated as sons and daughters of The Living God. You are being restored to walk on earth with your full inheritance of authority and dominion. Hold fast to the promise that NO weapon formed against you shall prosper. I have listened to the grounds on which you bring the petitions of your heart and you have laid them upon the throne of the Almighty God with selfless motives and full faith. In this hour, I will begin to separate you as My children on Earth and unite you as a fortified wall to this nation.

You are the workmanship of My powerful hand, you are My elect, you have been chosen and predestined to walk in faith and in My strength during this time. So, let your heart not be troubled because your victory in this great time of trial and test of faith shall bring Me great Glory; The time has come where every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that I AM GOD!

Sorrow Will Become Joy

  I’ve walked with you your whole life and I know the pain you have tolerated. The way your broken heart bleeds and the wounds in your soul.   I am aware of all your sufferings.  In your despair, I have comforted you and I am here to catch all your tears.  I perceive your thoughts, the good and the bad.  I am working in the depths of your heart.  I am tenderly teaching you my ways and impressing my heart upon you.  I am bringing healing where you’ve been wounded, and I long to enliven your spirit.

Amid the anguish and pain you are facing, I want you to trust me. I may not reveal My plan for you, and I know you don’t understand but persevere, even when you are afraid and when you feel alone. I am right beside you in every step you take. The hurt of the sorrows you are enduring will not compare to the taste and overwhelming joy you will experience when I reveal My glory in your pain. Your heart will rejoice at the abundance of joy I will impart, and no one will be able to take it from you.

He is Risen

Oh Gracious King, Lover of my soul, give my heart and my mind words as I begin to minister to you this Resurrection Sunday:

He is Risen!! He is no longer the lowly man of Galilee, He is no longer the forsaken of God for our sins. He is The Almighty El Shaddai God seated above at the right hand of the Father.  Let us rejoice! The Spirit is here. The Glory of our God, The Lord is here.

Precious Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Your Beloved stands in your light and grace. My Lord, you have justified me before our Father. Through your precious blood shed you have pardoned my behaviors and my faults. In your sacrificial love, you have washed me clean. At the cross I have been made righteous and I am no longer a criminal before God. You were crucified because of my sins, your final breath has given me life. Your work on the cross is finished, My Lord, and my redemption is complete. I Thank you, My King. I am forever grateful for what you have done for me.

Transition And Change

In honor of Holy week: John 15:18-26 and 1 Peter 4:14-16

I see you timid, I see your discomfort, and I see your hesitation to speak in My name. You struggle with proclaiming My promises and you are fearful of what others may say or think. Sometimes you hesitate with testifying to My works in your life. You lack confidence with who you are and the authority you’ve been given because others may not consider you worthy or qualified. You are afraid of persecution and you are afraid of rejection. You often hide behind your worldly accomplishments and spiritual accomplishments and at times you isolate yourself from the world in fear that you are misunderstood.

These behaviors are no longer necessary, you have walked in My footsteps and have honored My will for your life, therefore you are My partner, My friend, and My beloved child. Lift your head and do not be discouraged, I Am cultivating every detail in your life and removing all the limitations in your personality that cause you disbelief of who you are in Me.

I am asking for your total dependence and trust in Me during this season. A transition of your faith is taking place, a transition from the faith of a servant to the faith of a daughter. This transition will bring great privileges and gifts. I ask you to treasure these gifts without becoming too proud. Remember, I abide in you not because you chose Me but because I have chosen you. I have loved you despite your mistakes and now I command you to demonstrate the love I have freely given you… to others, even those who are unlovable.

This change will bring growth and maturity in your walk. This change will also bring rejection and rebellion from those who are in the world. There is one who dominates this world and causes rejection and rebellion against Me and those who come in My name. Take comfort for the world’s hatred is directed towards Me and Me alone. These attacks are not meant for you personally but for who and what you stand for. I also have stood in humiliation, persecution, and opposition and I have experienced the hostile and aggressive nature of those who reject and rebel against Me, so you should not expect anything less. They hated Me without cause, but I urge you to love in such a way that is also without cause so that the world may see Me in you. If you are rejected for my namesake, blessed are you! For My spirit and glory rest upon you. If you suffer as a Christian do not be ashamed but glorify My name.

I will strengthen you with the capability to show compassion and sympathy for your persecutors, for they truly do not know who I Am. It is My Spirit that will bring you Comfort and Counsel so that you may stand in love and walk in peace. You are in the world, but you are not of the world. You are separated, separated to the call I have on your life. Take this opposition and may you find it pleasant in your eyes because it will be proof and a guarantee that you are chosen by Me.

On the cross, I have taken all your shame, your guilt, and your inadequacies. On the cross, I have crucified your fear, your feelings of unworthiness, and your need for justification. I have justified you; I have called you, I have set you apart, and I have qualified you. You have been given My Spirit and Holy presence. I have given you The Comforter, He will be your Advocate beside you as you bear witness to Me. He will be your strength and assurance when fear tries to arise. I have given you The Counselor, He will give you wisdom and knowledge so that you can testify to My power and work in your life. I have given you The Helper, He will give you courage to humbly face all opposition.

You are qualified to bear witness to me because you trust in Me. You call on My name and you have walked closely with Me since the beginning of this journey. You have kept My word and My decrees. You have made me a part of your life and now I have made you a part of mine. I have armed you with My presence and My gifts for the road ahead and it is in My strength that you can and will endure all things.
