Today we pray for our Father’s Kingdom to come and His will to be done. With expectation in every fiber of body, soul, and spirit, we lean into Holy Spirit leading and prepare for the day. We are called to it!
Prophetically, we see it—Kingdom power and the glory of our Father in those who are Spirit-inspired, who follow divine promptings with unction and a witness of the Spirit.
Religious men think it foolish to trust God and obey Him completely, but the spiritual man doesn’t flinch nor yield at all to such pride. Instead, with wisdom and confident strength of spirit, the one who is spiritual presses in with discernment to take the day!
“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. . . Christ, the head of the body. For he holds the whole body together with its joints and ligaments, and it grows as God nourishes it.” (Colossians 2:7 & 19, NLT)
The strength of a thing is its foundation. The architect’s design envisions the structure’s height, adding sufficient foundation below to support the structure above—the deeper the foundation the higher the building can go.
Individual success. including the measure of how far we can advance, derives from depths of spiritual character, the most critical support for intellectual growth, vital for strong, healthy emotions.
In matters of faith people often confuse the issue, believing they can make the Lord one option among many as their source for success, and making Jesus Christ merely one of several higher powers. They are incorrect; He is the highest power.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the greatest power and “sure foundation” for success. The Lord’s power is all power. He is Almighty God. His strength is mission strength for daily life, for every believer.
The Almighty sends you forth today with a sure foundation and empowered with all power and all authority.
The Son of God, our Lord Jesus Christ, submitted to His Father’s plan and today we are delivered from darkness, every plague and impossibility and receive instead the strong arm of the Lord—the strength of the LORD working through us to make all things possible.
“Who has believed our report and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?” (Is 53:1)
- arm – arm, especially a forearm; arm, power, shoulder, holpen (help), mighty, strength
- revealed – to uncover, remove, to discover or show oneself, to be uncovered, be disclosed, nakedness, make known, show, reveal
Isaiah’s prophecy and its fulfillment affirm God’s redemptive plan. The Son glorified the Father. He obeyed…even unto the death of the cross. God extended His arm to make a way for man and Isaiah prophesied Messiah’s suffering would deliver humanity from suffering.
In every situation remember a path is already opened for you, a solution already arranged. Ignore advice that isn’t aligned with this hope. Ignore anything that falls below the standard of Christ in you… your hope!
It may take minutes or hours, possibly months or years, but do not step back from or lose heart concerning the foundation laid and down payment made on your behalf, ahead of time. Those will hold. You’ll see!
Stay focused. Don’t waiver. Draw courage from within. Extend your hand in every way you can and don’t withhold anything. Give your best. Sow and reap—at the same time! Head up, shoulders back!
Remember what He told you on the mountain and even if all is not perfect along the way, don’t stop . . . no matter what!
Today the LORD leads with heaven’s wisdom—perfectly pure, perfectly true, perfectly just. There is no mixture in what He speaks; His wisdom is pure—not confusing, not mixed up, not a little of this and a little of that. He has a word for you and it is clear when He speaks it.
In the same way that the Lord is present to heal your body, He is present to meet every need of yours; He sets the record straight with daily downloads of truth, unraveling Satan’s distortion of truth. Our part is to conform thoughts and actions to His wisdom—by wisdom we receive wisdom!
Allow the Lord’s Spirit to judge the matter. Refuse to continue except that with every step wisdom produces its full reward of truth—in you. Meditate in God’s Word—it is pure and therefore free of mixture. You may not think you have a pure word and perfect perspective but stay in His Presence, pondering His Word and drinking from His Spirit. You will move higher in what you hear.
God’s wisdom unveils answers hidden years in the generations—twisted ways that dominated our “blood line” since before we were born. His mercy comes to rescue us and strike judgment against the enemy if we will only accept the truth He unveils . . . truth that delivers our bloodline . . . for a thousand generations!
God is in the house. Your time has come.
Ref: generations, bloodlines
Iniquity to 3rd & 4th generation–Exodus 20:5, Numbers 14:18, Deut 5:9
He keeps covenant to a thousand generations–Deut 7:9, 1 Chron 16:15, Ps 105:8
Confidence is transferrable. Your confidence for success affects others. Even those normally weak in confidence become strong when they participate with you.
The reverse is also true. Hesitation combined with double-speak spoils the atmosphere and counters confidence, making faith’s operation iffy, at best. Indecision and lack of confidence are not leadership qualities.
Leadership today must advance on shoulders strengthened by high confidence in God’s Word, supported by a condition of heart that believes.
Mark 11:24 inspires confidence for the impossible. The petition you have before God today may seem impossible but ignore impossibility. Instead, step out. Release your most developed faith and speak to the mountain in front of you. It will obey you.
Confidence. You have it. You know you do. The mountain knows it too. (Smile.)
You purchased truth when you heard it so don’t sell now! Stay with the truth—speak supernatural possibilities rather than that unbelief blah, blah, blah. Unbelief produces doubt and doubt systematically dismantles what you just accomplished.
The more we grow spiritually the more we realize taking the same ground twice—due to careless words expressing the exact opposite of what we are believing for—is unnecessary if we can simply discipline our thoughts, words, and actions to agree precisely with what we claim to believe.
Supernatural hope is focused. Keep your eye on the continuum. Never back up and always continue to build. Place today’s advance atop yesterday’s and remember what you have invested; remember you believed the Lord was leading you then so why question His leading now?
Refuse unbelief. Believe. Speak it. Light, be!
Some religions hold a philosophical view of goodness and what it means to be good—on some level, for some cause, for personal benefit or the benefit of a group or the whole global community. Theirs is the human principle of goodness, basically being good for goodness’ sake, and includes universal virtues like tolerance or pity for the less fortunate or self-denial.
Christianity teaches another perspective. For Christians, all goodness is from God—He is good and extends His goodness to all and those who know Him as Lord demonstrate His goodness. For Christians, goodness is part of God’s unconditional love. His love is kind and good. His goodness produces spiritual fruits of goodness in our lives, practically and spiritually.
The Lord’s redemption did not come because men are good but rather because He is good. He doesn’t dictate that we be good for anyone’s sake but teaches goodness for the believer means the Lord is at work in our lives and the good works that result aren’t for goodness alone but are natural expressions of lives responding to His lead.
The Lord, He is good!
Romans 2:4, Galatians 5:22, John 14:12, Ephesians 3: v20, Philippians 2: v13, Jude 1 v24, Verses@Once
Be fully convinced of God’s will in your situation. Stay focused—don’t allow thoughts to skip from one thing to the next. Be sure decisions and logic supporting those come from revelatory understanding, gleaned from meditation in God’s Word. Focus on the one thing you must decide—the major area that must be accomplished in the coming year.
Concerning the single most critical situation you face, have you spent time insisting on God’s will? Pray. Make sure enemystrongholds are broken using declarations of God’s Word. As the Lord’s covenant partner and representative, every stronghold is yours to command: The right hand of the Lord does valiantly!
Fine tune your decision-making. Settle once and for all that God’s Word is your stronghold concerning this issue. Insist you have final authority, based in His Word—for every day, every detail, every word, every emotion, every thought, and every step forward.
Do not be concerned about anything or anyone else—God has it!
