I heard the Lord God say,
“I want you to begin seeing yourself as I see you says the Lord. Droughts are over and new mindsets are available in me. Come as you are, says the King of Glory. As you are requires nothing except effort. I plan to remake you into the glorious rendition of the original plans I had long ago. Please permit me to show you not through another. I will show you directly what My plans are says the Lord. There are too many who are going to every news outlet first thing in the morning for their wisdom, information and knowledge. Come to me, says the Lord of hosts. Sit and dialogue with me first thing in the morning and see if I don’t pour out upon you what no news outlet could. I plan to bring a fresh wind to your loins. An eruption of faith, hope and love will erupt out of you in the coming days says the Lord. I don’t need to bring a notice, but I do so for your sake so that you will not be startled when something new that cannot be explained erupts out of you. In this new day, I am restoring and removing. I said, I am restoring and removing in areas like vision, hearing, and heart. The well within your heart will be cleansed by My truth and the depth of your vision will be restored by My anointing. Don’t dismiss small beginnings for they are where you get your footing, says the Lord. Many whom have risen to the top in this last decade will soon come crashing down but I will be right there to pick them up. I will restore them as their hearts and compassion for My people returns to me. The hearing of your youth will soon remind you of the easy days in life. The days when the sound of a bird chirping in a window or the raindrops above your mantle will all take you back to a place of peace, assurance and confidence. Confidence in what you ask? In me I say. I have incredible plans for your life, says the Lord but first I must get you back on track. You’ve strayed away from me and My plans for so long this feels normal, but it is not. This shaking I am bringing to your life is for your good and ultimately My glory. Trust the Author of the shaking. I will never steer you wrong. It is for your benefit that I shake away others, bad habits, wrong thinking, and sinful mannerisms. Please join me in making your destiny great again by permitting you to produce fruit again. Fruit that can only come if you are attached to My vine. Go now to your quiet place. There I will meet you.

For the average Christian, strategy in how to stay alive is not a daily request during prayer. It’s a common misconception amongst the evangelicals, and quite frankly unheard of amongst the practical thinkers. “Ask for strategy, who me?” Yes you, ask the living Spirit of God, the Spirit of Wisdom for strategy on how to survive daily attacks from the unseen enemy. The enemy spoken of is the enemy of the Christian faith, satan.
Long before I knew I was in the middle of a war, I understood there was something not quite right with the way I’d handle certain matters. I would respond too quickly with emotions that seemed to stem from an offense unbeknown to me, was somehow festering within me. How could I justify my actions if I did not know the source? Fast forward, now I find myself asking the Holy Spirit for counsel on a host of matters involving my most inner self. It’s within the confined fibers of the human heart where the combat zone dwells while the battlefield rages inside of the mind. Continue reading “A Christian’s War”

What is transparency? Is it that section of your speech where you “feel” you’re being open, honest and vulnerable? I believe it’s that place that one goes to where every thing is unveiled to God without reservation. It’s that place where there’s no more murmuring, complaining or blaming but more so ownership. Transparency is what I choose to call a destination, an action, or even a description of oneself.
I often ask myself, why aren’t more people completely transparent with God? Don’t they realize he sees everything, hears every thought and lives everywhere? I believe this word sums up the answer to these questions: Self-Preservation.
God is not looking for the perfect role model, the most secure men or humblest of women. He wants you and all of your imperfections to trust Him. Trust him when you don’t have the answers and need them. Trust him when you have a deadline and still have not been given guidance. He can be trusted with all of your present, past and yes even future mess, but only if you’ll be totally transparent with Him. Whether you whisper, speak, cry, scream or say nothing at all…he still hears your thoughts and longs for them to be completely transparent.
Transparency is when you and God really get down to business. Continue reading “Transparency”

Each entry into a doorway requires a person to either step up or down in order to pass “through”. Regardless if the person is immobile and forced to utilize mechanical help, or solicit the assistance of genuine bystanders. The doorway is a means to enter into or exit from one location to another. The doorsteps of your life can be stumbling blocks for your mission if not carefully measured.
I submit to you, it is imperative where you place your feet when in motion towards your next season. Your destiny does not wait for you to position your feet in perfectly aligned places in order to get there faster. No, your destiny awaits your motivation to stay on the right track. How often have you been distracted from a dream or vision you once held? How many new-year resolutions have you begun only to experience sheer failure less than one month into the new-year? Watching what you align your steps to, means you’re watching how you’re getting to your destiny. Continue reading “Doorsteps”
