Friday

Jesus said, “…Take it from me: Unless a person is born from above, it’s not possible to see what I’m pointing to—to God’s kingdom.” “How can anyone,” said Nicodemus, “be born who has already been born and grown up? You can’t re-enter your mother’s womb and be born again. What are you saying with this ‘born-from-above’ talk?” Jesus said, “You’re not listening. Let me say it again. Unless a person submits to this original creation—the ‘wind-hovering-over-the-water’ creation, the invisible moving the visible, a baptism into a new life—it’s not possible to enter God’s kingdom. When you look at a baby, it’s just that: a body you can look at and touch. But the person who takes shape within is formed by something you can’t see and touch—the Spirit—and becomes a living spirit.

“So don’t be so surprised when I tell you that you have to be ‘born from above’—out of this world, so to speak. You know well enough how the wind blows this way and that. You hear it rustling through the trees, but you have no idea where it comes from or where it’s headed next. That’s the way it is with everyone ‘born from above’ by the wind of God, the Spirit of God.” (John 3:3)

It’s a prerequisite that we can’t avoid to keep. X

Friday – 5/5/17

…What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. 


Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. (Mat 6:30)


I just had a fabulous experience watching a pride of Lions trying to grab a young calf from her mother. Bottom line, she didn’t quit! She stood her ground protecting her baby and then chased off the whole pride! 


So, Child of the Living GOD, it doesn’t matter ‘what’ is ranging against you – or what you think you have done to separate you from His Grace. Call on His Powerful Name! He loves you with a passion that will defend you! X

Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. 


Listen for GOD’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. 


Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to GOD! Run from evil! 


Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! 


Honor GOD with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over. 


But don’t, dear friend, resent GOD’s discipline; don’t sulk under his loving correction. It’s the child he loves that GOD corrects; a father’s delight is behind all this. (Prov‬ ‭3:5)


As Derek Prince says, our life depends far more on the ‘choices’ we make than on our our ‘feelings!’ X

Saturday – 14/5/16

(GOD speaking) “… I’ve been quiet long enough. I’ve held back, biting my tongue. But now I’m letting loose, letting go, like a woman who’s having a baby… 


I’ll take the hand of those who don’t know the way, who can’t see where they’re going. I’ll be a personal guide to them, directing them through unknown country. I’ll be right there to show them what roads to take, make sure they don’t fall into the ditch. These are the things I’ll be doing for them— sticking with them, not leaving them for a minute.” (Isaiah‬ ‭42:10)


It’s Saturday. For some of us this means work and for some rest. Nonetheless, for all of us it means new interactions and choices … 


Remember, Child of the Living GOD we can only overcome through the blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony … So take your stance, tell the forces ranged against you to get lost and all the la la to get back in line. 


You are a Child of GOD and no longer subject to fear!!! X

If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. (James 1:5)


This scripture has always jumped out at me. It screams out ‘don’t quit son and don’t let your circumstances determine your faith in Me to help you …!’


The next verse is even harder … People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open.” (James‬ ‭1:6-8‬)


Holy Spirit, please help me to trust you in all my situations. You tell me that you’ll keep me in perfect peace if my mind is settled on you – if I trust you. Please speak help me to focus on you today. Please take my thoughts and words and bless them for your glory. 


I receive your peace and thank you for your amazing grace. Amen. X

…Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like.

But whoever catches a glimpse of the revealed counsel of God—the free life!—even out of the corner of his eye, and sticks with it, is no distracted scatterbrain but a man or woman of action. That person will find delight and affirmation in the action. (James‬ ‭1:22).

Papà says: “Child of mine, if you really want to get out of this hole, then calm down and let me lead …” X

… Stay with GOD! Take heart. Don’t quit. I’ll say it again: Stay with GOD. (Psalm‬ ‭27:13)
We all have pressures and some of us react through tantrums and pain long before hope and faith kick in … 
Papà knows and He promises to help. Open your heart and let Him. X
