"THE SWORD & THE STONE"
Published May 9, 2014
There is a fable about a sword that was put in a stone. No one could remove that stone unless he was the true King of England. It is time for you to take the Sword from the Stone. You are now a King because of your faith in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 1:5-6, says, "Jesus Christ, ...the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father."
1 Peter 2:4-7, tells us that Jesus is the Living, Corner Stone. Hebrews 4:12-13, declares that God's Word is like a sword and John 1:14 reveals to us that Jesus is The Living Word of God.
Take time to receive the sWORD of God from the Living Stone, Christ Jesus. He will give you the exact Word you need to rule over the situations you are facing and to defeat the enemies that are attacking you, your family, and all He has chosen you to fight for. (Ephesians 6:17) Take the sWORD from the Stone this day, you are a king.

My three year old Grandson likes to dress up like a superhero. His parents have a video of him with his Captain America outfit on holding up his red, white, and blue shield, saying with a tough sounding voice, "I want to fight a bad guy!"
You were made to be Super Natural. You were made to fight bad guys, (the devil and his demons). You were made to destroy his works. You were made to bring heaven to earth, (Matthew 6:10.) You are called to do even greater works then Jesus did, (John 14:12.)
What did Jesus do? 1 John 3:8 says, "The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil."
Acts 10:38 declares, "God anointed Jesus with the Holy Spirit and with power, He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him."
This day, let's go fight the bad guy who wants only to steal, kill and destroy lives. Put on your Super Hero outfit, You know, "Put on the Lord Jesus Christ," (Romans 13:14,) and be Super in Christ.

This morning I see people putting on shoes. What would we do without shoes?
Our feet could easily be bruised, cut, stepped on, slowed down... by not having the protection that shoes give to our feet.
The Bibles says in Ephesians 6:15 about shoes, "(shod), put on, the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared."
Each day battles come, but the Peace that comes from the Good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ will cover us to stand. It reminds us we are at one with God, it promises us joy, security, safety, prosperity and eternal life with God. There is nothing we lack now because of what Jesus Christ has done for us. Let us shod, or bind this Good news of God's amazing love for us, to ourselves throughout this day as we firmly stand in the peace that the Gospel of Jesus Christ gives us against our enemies.

You are loved, you are admired, you are His beloved Bride! The Bible says in Ephesians 5:31, when a man and woman marry, the two become one. You are one with The Lord Jesus. We leave behind all that was precious to us to cleave to our husband. We honor and respect His leadership over our lives because We know this, Jesus loves us! How much does God love us, He loves us so much that He laid His life down for us so that we might be His Beloved Bride. What would He withhold from us in Christ?.... Nothing! (Romans 8:32)
This day, don't forget, you are loved, He declares passionately in Song of Songs 4:9 over you, "You have captured My heart, My treasure, My bride. You hold it hostage with one glance of your eyes." You are His Bride, remember your life is now hidden in Christ, you are no longer two but one in your Heavenly Bridegroom. (Ephesians 5:22-33)

In this month of May, I saw the word "MAY" this morning, while praying for you. May means, "your free to, you are given the ability to, you have permission to." God wants to remind you this day, that He is not just the God of the, "Thou shall not," but now in Christ, He is the God of the, "Yes, you MAY." Here are just a few MAYS you MAY have in Christ:
Ephesians 3:17-19, "So that Christ MAY dwell in your hearts through faith...MAY be able to comprehend with all the saints...that you MAY be filled up to all the fullness of God."
Philippians 1:10, "so that you May approve the things that are excellent."
Philippians 3:8-12 says, "I MAY gain Christ, and MAY be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own..but that which is through faith in Christ,...that I MAY know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; in order that I MAY attain to the resurrection from the dead. That I MAY lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus."
Colossians 1:10 says, "That you MAY walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God..."
John 16:33 says, "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you MAY have peace.”
Romans 12:2 says, "You MAY prove what the will of God is."
John 10:10 says, "That you MAY have life, and MAY have it more abundantly."
The list of Mays God has granted you in Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit goes on and on. MAY you take hold of them this day. God loves you!
"REJOICE LIKE A CHILD"
Published May 4, 2014
Children laugh much more frequently than adults do. Many numbers are thrown around, but some people claim children laugh more than 300 times a day, where adults laugh less than 20 times a day.
God wants us to be like little children and rejoice! What are we rejoicing in? In The Lord! The Bible says in Philippians 4:4, "Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice." The reasons to rejoice are now endless because all of heavens resources are ours in Christ, (Ephesians 1:3, 2 Peter 1:3, Romans 8:32.)
This day, take time to rejoice in your Heavenly Father. Remember Psalms 16:11 says, ...In His presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever. So-o-o-o..... Rejoice!!!

I see a muffler this morning. A muffler is made to cancel out most of the engines sound, the English call it a Silencer. You are making a difference, people are being touched and changed, God is moving as you step out and speak for Him. The enemy wants to silence you, through people, disappointments, distractions, confusion, fears..., his list of ways to try to shut you up can seem endless.
The Apostle Paul was often harassed by the enemy as he preached the good news of Jesus Christ. In Acts 18:9-10, Jesus appears to encourage Paul in a vision saying, “Do not be afraid any longer, but go on speaking and do not be silent; for I am with you, and no man will attack you in order to harm you, for I have many people in this city.” This day, be encouraged, God is with you! Keep on speaking about the power of Jesus Christ, He is changing lives.

I see a person wearing unusual glasses and I'm hearing the words to this song by Jenns Johnson,
"God I look to You, I won’t be overwhelmed, Give me vision to see things like You do, God I look to You, You’re where my help comes from, Give me wisdom; You know just what to do."
In Revelation 4:1, John is being invited by Jesus to leave the view of the island he was exiled to, to see things from Heaven. "After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, "Come up here, and I will show you..."
God wants to give you heavenly vision. He is inviting you this day to come up where He is, to see that He is still on His throne reigning over your life. He loves you.

I hear the words, "Much More" today.
2 Chronicles 25:9, says, “The Lord has much more to give you than this.” King Amaziah of Judah had a plan for battle. God had better for him than his plan. He had to let go of His plans to receive the "Much More" that God had for him and the people of Judah.
God has "Much More" for us than we could possibly imagine. When we trust in Him and let go of our little bit, He will give you His much more. (John 6:9,13). Let us this day, let go of all that would keep us from the "Much More", choosing to trust in our God who is, "Able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us." Ephesians 3:20

Our days can be so busy that if we aren't careful, we may start our morning out running. We will run to meet people, run to work, run to the store, run to get this done or that. We Run, Run, Run! All the while there is a gentle knocking at our hearts that busyness can drown out Jesus calling out to us.
He speaks in Revelation 3:20 and says, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and He with me."
When we take time to dine with Jesus our whole world changes. Suddenly things aren't so heavy, there is Peace where there was anxiety. We can see things in a brand new way because we have taken time to open the door to His gentle knocking. The One that is full of grace and truth will give you the grace you need for the day and tell you again, who you are and that He is with you, that you are loved, and you are valuable and so precious to Him. Let's take some time to answer His knock today. God loves you!

You have been chosen by God, He has anointed you with the power of The Holy Spirit to bring His kingdom to others. I see an anointing bottle with handles on it. There are handles on the bottle because it is made to be taken from place to place.
In Acts 10:36-38, Peter is sent to Cornelius and his family and friends to preach peace with God through Jesus Christ, he is telling these people the good news of the gospel. He declares to these hungry people, "How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him."
God has anointed you, to carry His love, His goodness, His healing wherever you go. You are anointed to be poured out, to destroy the evil works of the devil in the lives of those He sends you to. This day is a day of good news, of God's freedom being released through you, because you are carrying the anointing of heaven with you wherever you go.

A song my son wrote quietly danced through my spirit this morning while I was praying for a Word from heaven for you. The song is called, "Tune Me" and it goes like this, "Tune me to the sound of your frequency... Let the world disappear, as you ring in my ear, Let the world disappear..."
Proverbs 4:20, in the Message Bible says, "listen well to My words; tune your ears to My voice." In Isaiah 50:4, Isaiah cries out, "The Lord God has given Me the tongue of disciples, That I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word. He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to listen as a disciple. Jesus spoke in Matt. 11:29, "learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls."
This day let the world and all it's problems disappear as we take time to let this God who loves you, Tune You to His amazing heart.

While praying this morning I saw a salt shaker being poured out. The Bible says in, Matthew 5:13, “You are the salt of the earth." We are how God seasons this earth. He waits to pour out His life through us to others. People need salt, they need to experience a people who are full of the saltiness of heaven, God's people poured out wherever we go. Luke 14:34 tells us, "Salt is good." This is the day to pour out His salt, that is the goodness of God over all we meet. They too, could become God's salt shaker!
