A Message from the high and towering God, who lives in Eternity, whose name is Holy: “I live in the high and holy places, but also with the low-spirited, the spirit-crushed, And what I do is put new spirit in them, get them up and on their feet again. (Isa 57:15)

“I WILL NEVER [under any circumstances] DESERT YOU [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], NOR WILL I FORSAKE or LET YOU DOWN or RELAX M Y HOLD ON YOU [assuredly not]!” (Heb 13:5) ❤️

Sunday

…you did not receive the “spirit of religious duty,” leading you back into the fear of never being good enough. But you have received the “Spirit of full acceptance,” enfolding you into the family of God.

And you will never feel orphaned, for as he rises up within us, our spirits join him in saying the words of tender affection, “Beloved Father!” (Rom 8:15)

So many of us live under a cloud of discouragement, we repress everything in the hope of finding peace – the bad as well as the good! All of this stems from our feeling unacceptable. In effect we we find it easier to forgive and love other than we do ourselves.

This ‘orphan’ spirit was CAST OUT OF OUR LIVES when we welcomed Jesus, the Christ of GOD to LIVE IN US.

Lord, I choose to believe the Truth of what you say and this day choose NOT to feel orphaned, and as you rise up within me, my spirit will join you in saying the words of tender affection, “Beloved Father!” ❤️

Saturday

(Jesus speaking) “Those who truly love me are those who obey my commands. Whoever passionately loves me will be passionately loved by my Father. And I will passionately love you in return and will manifest my life within you.” (John 14:21)

“Loving me empowers you to obey my word. And my Father will love you so deeply that we will come to you and make you our dwelling place.” (John 14:23)

To be passionate means no second-hand cleverly written prayers – just an open heart. No need for the latest worship tape – just the sound of our singing, mumbling, crying …!

The freedom to throw off all our preconceived ideas and just ‘be’ who we are before Him – wounds and all. ❤️

Friday

(GOD speaking) “… All your children will have GOD for their teacher— what a mentor for your children! You’ll be built solid, grounded in righteousness, far from any trouble—nothing to fear! far from terror—it won’t even come close!

If anyone attacks you, don’t for a moment suppose that I sent them, And if any should attack, nothing will come of it. I create the blacksmith who fires up his forge and makes a weapon designed to kill. I also create the destroyer— but no weapon that can hurt you has ever been forged. Any accuser who takes you to court will be dismissed as a liar.

This is what GOD ’s servants can expect. I’ll see to it that everything works out for the best.” GOD ’s Decree.” (Isa 54:11)

Our sister needed to remember this Promise yesterday, maybe you do today too? Thank You Lord. ❤️

Thursday

For God, the Faithful One, is not unfair. How can he forget the beautiful work you have done for him? He remembers the love you demonstrate as you continually serve his beloved ones for the glory of his name. (Heb 6:10)

For those who we don’t even know but are praying and interceding for us – right now, to people who can look into our damaged souls and put us back together under the auspices of a coffee and a chat, thank You Lord. ❤️

Wednesday

What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you’ll have it all—life healed and whole.

I know how great this makes you feel, even though you have to put up with every kind of aggravation in the meantime. Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine. When Jesus wraps this all up, it’s your faith, not your gold, that God will have on display as evidence of his victory. (1 Peter 1:3)

Patience is a word that just doesn’t fit in with the marketing and spiel have-it-now world of fast-this and quick-that. But just like respect, honour and truth it remains an immutable grace which can only be practiced through much personal discipline. ❤️

Tuesday

… the righteousness of God is tangible and brought to light through Jesus, the Anointed One. This is the righteousness that the Scriptures prophesied would come. It is God’s righteousness made visible through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ. And now all who believe in him receive that gift. For there is really no difference between us,

For we all have sinned and are in need of the glory of God. Yet through his powerful declaration of acquittal, God freely gives away his righteousness.

His gift of love and favour now cascades over us, all because Jesus, the Anointed One, has liberated us from the guilt, punishment, and power of sin! (Rom 3:21)

How Awesome is that!!!! ❤️
