Encouragement 4 MARCH

                       1. There are Two Kingdoms in operation on this earth and which one I was operating in that needed 2 have adjustments made.
                       2. That we take 4 granted many things we are so accustomed 2 having in our lives when they are removed. To treasure the 'tool's in our lives and keep them sharp and at our disposal when needed; one example is the SEEDS we have sown...
                       3. Never 2 take 4 granted every inch of our bodies, 4 we are wonderfully made, and each part is connected 2 each other. Including those people God puts in our life 4 a special task.
                       4. That 'hearing' the Voice of The Holy Spirit is a priviledge, a gift that one day will be removed after the Rapture. That having a 'relationship' with God is talking 2 the Holy Spirit during our day. B4 making 'any' decision, 2 go 2 God about it bcoz we are His Bride, meaning it is 'not' our 'part' 2 come up with the correct and best problem solving, but 2 ask 4 Wisdom bcoz those that have lived b4 us went thru the same circumstances as we ourselves are walking thru. No longer do we have 2 struggle re-inventing-the-wheel, but asking 4 the best solution. This keeps us in constant communication with our Maker and also keeps our SOUL from starving and becoming dormant and small.
                        5. The most amazing lesson I learned was a parable-picture form that I received recently about how 2 heal the hurts/past pains of our soul, that our soul is our mind, our will and surely those raging 'emotion's that daily control us. But the good news is, we can act by our will 2 allow our Spirit-Man 2 grow and not be under the control of our Mr Flesh [our Mind].
                        May all who walk this road in March find encouragement in some way and something that will change your life 4ever. It is my deepest desire that you walk away different than you 1st arrived. God bless you as we enter a new Season and a New and marvelous experience thru Spring. Our new journey into a new blessed year. GBU [God Bless You]..

01MAR - It is important that u keep your wits about u and stay calm in the midst of turmoil.  If u will purpose 2b at peace, the chaos that threatens 2 overtake u will be averted.   Take each moment as it comes knowing that I have given u the wisdom and strength 2 deal successfully with all adversity.  Be strong and calm, says the Lord.

Psalms 131:2 - Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.

02MAR - Set a post in a high place spiritually where u can see and discern every move of the enemy.  You must keep yourself in a constant state of awareness and ready 2 fight against each attack as it comes.  But, u must delineate people from demonic forces.  Your battle is not against those around u, but against the devil.  Your war is in the spirit and not in the natural realm.  U will gain the victory through faith, says the Lord.

Ephesians 6:12 - For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 

05MAR - Let faith arise in your soul.  Let it rise 2 new heights.  Now u examine it; examine the faith with which u are fighting the good fight.  Examine the faith that allows u 2 prevail.  And, as u examine it in these days, u will come 2 a greater position of faith.  For, the faith that I have given u indeed was a measure, but u have nurtured it, u have examined it, u have carried it, u have walked with it, u have used it, and it now becomes your weapon. It becomes a weapon that causes u 2 prevail in times that are hard.  It causes u 2 come forth with a shout of victory rather that with the wailing of the unvictorious.  Come forth, not as a victim, but as a victor.  Walk in the land that I have provided for u.  Walk in the faith that I have given u and cause it 2 grow exceedingly in these days.  It is a time in which the seeds of faith that are planted in your heart and are nurtured by the anointing will come and produce a harvest in your life, says the Lord God Most High.

05MAR - It is more important than ever 2 keep your composure.  Continue 2 seek My face and maintain spiritual vitality.  I am your hope and your very present help in times of trouble.  Depend on Me 2 give u the wisdom u need that will bring u 2 the heart of every issue and give u direction for your next step.  Be courageous and bold; do not be afraid, says the Lord, for I am with u.

Psalms 46:1 - God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

06MAR - Watch for the enemy 2 undermine your confidence by speaking lies about your viability and worth.  Refuse 2 internalize rejection, for it will assuredly bring condemnation and a sense of alienation.  This attack is designed 2 cause spiritual paralysis and keep u from walking in the Spirit.  Rise up and remind yourself of the truth, says the Lord.  You are My beloved and of great value in My kingdom.

1 Peter 1:1-5
- Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that u may grow thereby, if indeed u have tasted that the Lord is gracious.   Coming 2 Him as 2 a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious,  u also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, 2 offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable 2 God through Jesus Christ.

07MAR - Come 2 the truth of My Word in all things.  Only in truth can your faith be established and exercised 2 overcome adversity.  Beloved, I have given you precious promises of victory and the authority to succeed.  It is of vital importance that you control your thoughts and emotions as you put your trust in Me, says the Lord.  Refuse to allow fear to gain any ground in you.  

2 Timothy 1:7 - For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
08MAR - Don't settle for less than My best for u.  Keep pushing for the mark of the high call in Christ.  Complacency is a threat, and laziness is your enemy.  I speak 2 u of your spiritual condition and the danger of just going along 2 get along.  You live in dangerous times when the enemy of your soul will try 2 entice u 2 compromise your convictions.  But, I am calling u 2b led by My Spirit, says the Lord. 

Philippians 3:12-14 -  Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.  Brethren, I do not count myself 2 have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward 2 those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
09MAR - I speak 2 those places where u have been scattered 2 bring them into alignment.  You have done your best 2 make all of the pieces fit, but u haven't had all of the pieces u need.  The things that have been missing will come 2 u and be put in order, says the Lord.  What u need now is patience, wisdom, and direction.  Keep your hope and faith alive.

Hebrews 10:23 - Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. 

12MAR - My banner over u is victory.  If u will look and if u will spiritually connect with Me u will see u are destined 2 victory.  No matter what the odds, no matter how intense the war, no matter the level of correction that is necessary, no matter what it might be that u are going through at this time, understand that it is a time of war and the enemy is after u.  Your  enemy is chaos, and he will create those situations and those things that will be a deterrent 2 u.  But, make the determination today 2 win bcoz I Am with u, always leading u in triumph, always bringing u through, and watching over u.   You are not alone in this battle.  I encourage u 2 continue 2 fight the good fight of faith.   Rise up and declare your victory into the heavenlies.  Write a decree of victory over your life.  Arise and go forth into the battle.  I  Am with u, says the Lord.

12MAR - You have been called 2 stand on the Rampart and watch.  This rampart is a spiritual fortress, a place of safety where u can defend yourself against the onslaught of the enemy.  And, I tell u truly that this is a time when u must set a watch from a high place in the Spirit where u can see and discern the battle.  Then, u can fight from that place of strength and wisdom 2 gain the victory over every attack.  Be strong and of good courage, says the Lord.  Your battles will always reveal places of self-reliance and weakness.

 Habakkuk 2:1 - I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch 2 see what He will say 2 me, and what I will answer when I am corrected.

13MAR - It is important as u continue 2 come 2 maturity that u maintain a healthy spiritual atmosphere.  I am referring 2 your own personal environment bcoz u must establish the divine kingdom personally before it can extend beyond u 2 your family, church and work.  My work through u will always be an overflow of your relationship with Me and your obedience 2 My word, says the Lord.  It all begins with the first and great commandment and seeking the kingdom first.

Matthew 22:37-38  - Jesus said 2 him, "'You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.  This is the first and great commandment."

14MAR - Beloved, the strength of your life and health is not only found in joy but in dealing with things as they come.  Diligence is the operative word here.  Quiet and steady perseverance will benefit u greatly and keep u moving forward.  This is no time 2 get stuck in circumstances that seem 2b overwhelming.  When something seems 2b beyond your ability 2 deal with, trust Me for the help that u need, says the Lord.  I will give u direction, wisdom and strength in all things.

Psalm 120:1-2 -  I will lift up my eyes 2 the hills-From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.

15MAR - Do all that is necessary 2 maintain peace in your environment.  Subdue the flesh and bind the enemy.  For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. (James 3:16)  The power of division, strife and contention is invading governments from the national level 2 the local level and even personally.  Only u, My people, can maintain spiritual equilibrium in the midst of chaos.  I give u My peace, says the Lord.

John 14:27 -  "Peace I leave with u, My peace I give 2 u; not as the world gives do I give 2 u. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

16MAR - Many of u, My children, are projecting out and trying 2 imagine what will happen in the days ahead.  This is a waste of time and presumption, for u never know what tomorrow will bring or how things will play out.  You know in part and prophesy in part.  You cannot experience or live in the future, and the impatience that comes as a result will take u out of the spiritual flow.  You must stay present with Me, says the Lord.  I will give u wisdom and direct your steps as u trust in Me here and now.

Matthew 6:34 -  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

18MAR - Nothing 2B Afraid Of - Are u kept from doing the things God tells u 2 do bcoz of self-consciousness in your life?  God has promised He will never leave u nor 4sake u. Grab hold of that. Believe it. Act on it.  When it comes 2 obeying God, ur own reputation does not count. It does not matter 'how' u look--just obey God!  As u lose the desire 2 protect your image, others will begin 2C the image of Jesus coming thru. Put aside that old self-consciousness and develop God-consciousness. Stop being dominated by the fear of man, bcoz he is himself on the Road of Life seeking the same common things as u, Be motivated instead by Faith in what Jesus can do 'thru' u.

Hebrews 13:5-6 - Stay away from the 'love/lust' of money; be satisfied with what u have. For God has said: "I will never, never fail u nor 4sake u."  That is Y we can say w/o any doubt or fear, "The Lord is my Helper [I dont have 2 do it alone anymore], and I am not afraid of anything that mere man can do 2 me.

19MAR - THE TRUMPET by BURNS - The Lord says, take heart.  You are not defeated.  Whether u know it or not, victory will be yours in this season.  For, it has already been determined in the council of the Holy One.  The Ancient of Days has now risen up and the court has been seated.  He has made a determination, a ruling, and a judgment in favor of the saints, that the kingdom belongs 2 them and the victory is also theirs.

19MAR - Your plans, ideas, and religious ideals are about 2b challenged.  There are things u thought u knew or understood, but u will find out that some of your concepts were theoretical constructions.  Now, u will get 2 see those thoughts come under the scrutiny of experience.  When this process is complete, u will see and know the point of error and come 2 truth.  In so doing, your spiritual and experiential foundation will be more solid, says the Lord.

1 Corinthians 3:11
- For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

19Mar - Stand Against the Devil's Strategies!
Decide today 2 give the devil no place!  If u give him place, he will take it. Stay alert and keep your shield of faith high. U can stand successfully against the devil's strategies.  Make the Word of God the Final Authority in your life. Decide 2 live your life by Faith in what God has said. Faith works by Love, so decide 2 live by the Love of God.  Without the Word, u cannot live by Faith. This lifestyle of the Word, Faith and Love, keeps u in place of resistance 2 the devil. Commit 2 it today!

Ephesians 4:17,18    Let me say this, speaking 4 the Lord: Live no longer as the unsaved do, 4 they are blinded and confused. their closed hearts are full of darkness; they are far away from the Life of God bcoz they they themselves have shut their minds against Him, and they cannot understand His ways of doing things.

20MAR - Be on guard and remain fully and solidly positioned in My presence, says the Lord.  For, the enemy has released an attack 2 get u off track and 2 scatter u 2 the wind.  His strategy is 2 cause u 2 get emotionally invested in things u have no control over.  Yours is not 2 try 2 control but 2 trust Me in those things.  Refuse 2 allow the devil and his plans 2 get u off balance.  Stand strong and resolute in My purposes.  I am with u and for u.
Nahum 2:1 - He who scatters has come up before your face. Man the fort! Watch the road! Strengthen your flanks! Fortify your power mightily.

 20Mar - Be Clothed With Humility:
Clothe yourself w/humility today.  To be truly humble is 2 submit yourself 12 God. That means when God says you've been made the Righteousness of God IN Christ Jesus, agree w/Him.  Find out what God's Word says about u. Agree w/Him. Don't let satan keep u groveling in the dust of false humility. Banish pride by submitting 2 God's Truth. When u know that Truth, be bold enough 2 say it!  True humility is sure 2 look good on u.

1Peter 5:5 -     

21MAR - Trust Me 2 lift u up when you're down.  Believe that I am vitally interested in your life, and I see those things which concern u.  I am with u 2 help u get up and proceed on the path of life--eternal Life and eternal Joy.  It is My will 2 establish u in peace and strength.  Receive My help and rise up 2 a new level of confidence and faith that I will not leave u or forsake u.  You are precious 2 Me, says the Lord.  Be established in that truth. 

Deuteronomy 31:8 - "And the LORD, He is the one who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed."

21Mar - Are Angels Just 4 Kids?   Angels are not just kid stuff!  They are powerful spirits sent forth 2 minister 2 the heirs of salvation-us!  The word 'salvation' in Hebrews 1:14 is from the Greek word 'soteria' meaning 'deliverance, preservation of material, and temporal deliverance."  Just think about that! God has created vast numbers of gloriously powerful spiritual beings 4 the express purpose of protecting u and delivering u from the evils of this world.  When u are in trouble, don't cower and cry.  Speak the Word and watch your angels respond 2 it!

Hebrews 1:14    

22MAR - This is a time when u have 2 continue 2 press through stubborn difficulties.  This is an opportunity 2 persevere and still stay strong in your faith.  It may seem like breakthrough will never come, but I'm telling u that it will.  Don't give up.  Continue 2 trust Me 4 the answer 2 your prayers.  I see what you're going through, and I hear u, says the Lord.  Be strong and courageous. 

Isaiah 59:1 - Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy, that it cannot hear.

22Mar - Healing Always Comes     If you've laid hands on someone who did not receive their healing, don't cut off the flow of God's power by withdrawing your faith. Stand fast.  God has done His part. He said if u lay hands on the sick, they would recover. So if He said they would recover, healing always comes. It's not God who is holding back.  It's the receivers who aren't receiving.  Just keep standing in faith 4 them and somewhere down the line that fellow may just decide 2 stand up and agree w/u and God about his healing!

Mark 16:17,18    

I had a vision of an officer of the law dressed in uniform and belted with weapons. He was standing in the center of his assigned jurisdiction.
The legal power or authority of doing justice in cases of complaint; the power of executing the laws and distributing justice.
Power of governing or legislating.
The power or right of exercising authority.
The limit (boundaries) within which power may be exercised.
He knew the laws of the land and was appointed 2 execute them. He was trained 2 discern those who violated the law and empowered with authority 2 arrest and bring them 2 justice. Thus he was equipped with all the training and tools he needed 2 fulfill his commission; however, the officer seemed 2b paralyzed or asleep on his feet while the criminals wreaked havoc about him.
I heard the Lord say, "You, My people, are like this officer. You possess jurisdiction - the power of governing - your body, soul, spirit, and all that lies within the realm of your responsibility. You know My Word and by it can discern between good and evil, truth and error. The Holy Spirit Himself dwells in u, and u are empowered with My authority. Your commission is 2 exercise it over every work of darkness that seeks 2 invade your jurisdiction.
"And yet the enemy has convinced many of u that u do not have the ability 2 identify, arrest, and execute My judgment against him - and thus make him stop. This lie has emasculated your spiritual power and annihilated your threat against him.
"I am awakening afresh those who have been paralyzed and calling u forth 2 remember your spiritual identity. Do whatever it takes 2 convince yourself of the reality of your delegated authority. Learn it, practice it, and exercise it 2 remove the enemy from your areas of responsibility. This personal revival will act as a trigger that will generate the breakthrough u have desired and needed 2 defeat the enemy's attacks against u. That is your commission; do the work!"

Luke 9:1-2   When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority 2 drive out all demons and 2 cure diseases,  and he sent them out 2 preach the kingdom of God and 2 heal the sick.
John 5:30 
I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, bcoz I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.
23Mar - Coming Together     Do u want 2b part of one of the most magnificent moved of God this world has ever seen?  God is calling u 2 unity.  He is calling u 2 lay down your disagreements and come together w/others in the Body of Christ in preparation 4 Jesus' return.  The Word of God says 2 come into the unity of the faith.  God does not have a long list of doctrinal demands 4 us 2 meet.  His requirements are simple.  Believe on the Name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another (1John 3:32). The devil's going 2 panic when he sees the unity of God's people. It is the most unlimited, powerful thing on earth.

Ephesians 4:13     

24Mar - Obey Today     When the Spirit of God comes 2 correct u, follow His INSTRUCTIONS. Follow them quickly.  It u refuse God's guidance, your heart will grow hard.  The children of Israel ignored God's leading so often that He finally just sent them into the wilderness.  They were so stiff-necked that He could not lead them into the blessings.  Take a lesson from them.  God needs soft-hearted people.  When God tells u what 2 do, do not put Him off thinking it will be easier 2 do it later.  It will be harder.  Keep your heart tender.  Obey the Lord!

Proverbs 29:1     

25Mar -     Come Alive Today     Consider yourself dead 2 sin and alive 2 the power of Jesus today.  You were spiritually resurrected the day u made Jesus Christ the Lord of your life.  You are not under satan's power.  Do not let him talk u into living as if u are still spiritually dead.  Consider yourself alive!  The old man is dead and in his place a new creature has been born in u.  Always think of yourself as one who already has the life of God, not just an earthly being who is waiting 4 the Resurrection.  You are alive in Him!

2Corinthians 5:17     

It is the time of the latter and former rain.  The first anointing and the last anointing of the season are 2 mix themselves together and come upon u as raindrops from the realm of My kingdom.  As they come down upon u they shall invigorate, renew and supercharge u into a place of well being.  Allow the rain 2 come.  Ask for that rain for it is the time of it's giving and allow it 2 wash from u the defilement of the world and the devil.  Allow it 2 wash from u your discouragements and disappointments and take them down the river of no return.  Allow Me 2 come on your behalf right now and 2 show u a new day and 2 reveal a new path into My ways..  Come, I say, and allow Me 2 do in u that work; the work of My presence and glory.  Come and present yourselves 2 Me for the times of refreshing that come from My presence.  I am about 2 release the power of a prophetic word that will shake My kingdom.  I am about 2 release apostolic power in such dominion that the enemy will have no place in u, around u or upon u.  This is your destiny, says the Lord God.  That destiny has been written so blow the trumpet in Zion and assemble the people and call them forth into victory.  Today is the day of victory.

26MAR - Narrow your focus, beloved.  Refuse 2 allow your attention 2b scattered in all directions.  And, do not allow your focus 2b on your trouble or current dilemma.  This is a time 2 look squarely into My face, deliver your prayer with earnest faith,
and trust Me 2 answer, says the Lord.  Release yourself from all anxiety and worry.

John 6:20 -
But He said 2 them, "It is I; do not be afraid."

26Mar -  Ambassador 4 Christ     Everywhere u go today, u are representing the King of Kings and the Lord or lord. U are His Ambassador!  That is a very high honor.  God has equipped u 2 do it.  He has given u His Name and the power of His Word.  He has even put His Spirit inside u.  This is not time 2b half-consecrated and half-dedicated.  This is the time 2 go all the way w/God, 2 give Him your whole life.  If u will do that, He will give u back such power, such glory and goodness that u will shine brilliantly 4 Him.

2Corinthians 5:20     

27MAR - You are about 2 emerge from a place of dark seclusion.  As much as u have tried 2 not be hidden or private, I have used this time 2 bring a much needed healing.  That place of silence has been necessary 2 your spiritual, emotional, mental and physical well-being.  Prepare yourself, however, 2b brought forth into the light of a higher place where u will be able 2 understand the revelation of your seclusion, says the Lord.

Isaiah 55:12 - "For u shall go out with Joy, and be led out with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing b4 u, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands."

27Mar - From Believing 2 Perceiving     U area  King and Priest (revelation 1:6) and a world over comer (I John 5:4).  U have been given a royal office.  U may have a hard time believing that, but when it settles in your Spirit who u are in Christ, u will be able 2 exercise the power and authority that goes w/that office.  Step over the line from trying 2 believe 2 actually perceiving by dwelling on the Word of God.  The reality of your royality in Christ is yours!

Romans 8:37

28MAR - Look up, says the Lord.  Again, I say, look up!  You have been looking too close 2 yourself and your own concerns so that u have not discerned what I am doing.  You must see and know what I'm doing as well as what the enemy's plans are against u.  This is a time when I will again bring u 2 new heights spiritually so that u can see and discern with greater clarity.  I am also releasing an anointing that will increase your ingenuity, the power of your creative imagination.  Position yourself 2 make the most of this next move.

Psalms 5:3 - My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning I will direct it 2 You, and I will look up.

28Mar - Turn Your Losses Around     Do not despair over your losses.  Instead, (1) "Give and it shall be given unto u;  (2) good measure, (3) pressed down, and (4) shaken together, and (5) running over" (Luke 6:38).  That's the powerful principle that breaks losing streaks.  God never despaired over His losses.  He lost His most anointed, top-ranked angel when Lucifer fell.  He lost at least one-third of His angels 2 Lucifer.  He lost the man and woman He created when they did not dominion over the earth.  But, in spite of all that, God is still the greatest winner of all time!  He gave the most irreplaceable thing He had:  His only Son.  When the law-of-giving and receiving had done its work, the Almighty Father God received many sons and daughters into glory!

Romans 5:15     

29MAR - Beloved, refuse 2 listen 2 the useless chatter of the enemy when he tries 2 convince u that u are flawed or worthless.  I have not and do not condemn u.  You are My special treasure, chosen for My own purposes.  Satan is against u bcoz he is against Me, says the Lord, and these lies are weapons formed against u.  Do not believe them.  [No weapon formed against u shall [ever] prosper!

Psalms 139:14  - I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.29Mar - That Your Prayers May Not B Hindered     

30MAR - In a vision I saw a little desert beetle encircling a cactus; just going round and round making his path deeper and more established as he went.  And the Lord said, when u find yourself in a desert where u are experiencing spiritual dryness, u must stop considering your own plight.  The only avenue of extrication is 2 come 2 Me and trust Me 2 bring u 2 the place of life and refreshment.  Only in Me will u find abundant life.  Come!

Acts 3:19  - "Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord."

Fear Not 4 I AM with You

"Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you. I will uphold you with My righteous right hand" (Isaiah 41:10)

MillersDear Friends:
These days we are seeing many shifts and changes happening all around us, however, we can assure ourselves 2 the utmost and place our trust in the Lord 2 the extreme, 2 keep us and watch over us!

Look at the words in the above passage of Isaiah carefully. Right up front through the prophet God tells His people not to fear and not 2b dismayed (look around anxiously). The second half of His message is why we can do what He tells us there: "for I am with you!" Because God is with us, we need not fear. We need not be anxious.

Every time I hear or read God say something prefaced with I AM, I grin from ear to ear, real wide – my smile stretches from east to west, as a reassuring joy floods my soul. I love the I AM. We can apply I AM 2 every problem we call Him into. If you tell God, "I need healing," He steps in with: I am the Lord Who Heals! If u tell Him u need breakthrough, He steps into the problem with, I AM Breakthrough!

Do u recall the disciples on the boat and caught in the great storm in the dark? There they are, rowing like mad in the driving wind, at night no less. They see Jesus walking on the water toward them; they are terrified. And what does Jesus say? "It is I; do not be afraid."

They invite Him onto the tossing boat, and instantly problem solved, for "immediately the boat was at the land where they were going" (see John 6:21).

Alpha & Omega Power
Fear not because I AM is with you! Who? God Almighty! The Great I AM is with you, don't be dismayed, for I AM your GOD.

He is Almighty God! He created all that has been or will ever be. He knows the beginning from the end and the end from the beginning. He is the One who upholds, maintains, and controls the entire universe by the power of His WORD. Think on that, the profundity of it! Jehovah God is w/u. Don't be dismayed. Don't worry. Don't be confused. Don't be shaken. Don't be overwhelmed by what u C happening all around u. I AM is with u.

I have a feeling that God wants all of us 2 commit these words of His 2 heart, and allow the incredible promises contained therein to transform us. If we get it, if we embrace it; if we really get it deep down into our hearts that He truly is God with us, that He is I AM in every instance, every trial, every shift, every change, we will never fear, even if walking through the valley of the shadow of death. Friends, store up those words deep inside of u so that your mind immediately recalls them when things get challenging, worrisome, or fearsome.

His right hand or arm signifies a place of authority and power, honor and dominion, action and encounter, acceptance and reception and salvation. All authority is His. He will uphold and empower u 4 living and deliverance and victory in His power and authority!

He will uphold and empower u 4 living and deliverance and victory in His power and authority!

He Saves His Anointed
Look at this: "Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy Heaven with the saving strength of His right hand" (Psalm 20:6). David likely was going to war, it is thought, with the Ammonites and the Syrians who had vast numbers of horses and chariots with which 2 fight him. Things in the natural didn't look so good. I'm sure you know what that feels like. He required supernatural help and bcoz of this – God heard him with the saving strength of His right hand, the miraculous results of victory wrought by His Almighty Power in Action.

Moreover, we need 2b where David was: David saw God as more than a match 4 his multitudes of enemies and he had every confidence in I AM. So confident was David of His protection, help, salvation, strength, and victory that he considered all of it, and victory as already gained and exulted in it beforehand, setting up and displaying banners, even erecting them like trophies to glorify and honor Almighty God, Mighty in Battle. Those who trusted in the Lord are "risen, and stand upright" the enemy has bowed down and fallen (see Psalm 20:8). It is by His Hand that He promises to uphold us in our times of difficulty in the most righteous way! We will never be brought to ultimate defeat in our trials bcoz the right hand of God upholds us high above them!
Our God is an awesome God! Pass it on!
So today, dear friends, I trust that this passage of Isaiah, God's message 2 His people long ago and equally relevant 4 His people today, will be an immense blessing 2 u. If you know of someone or some people who need such encouragement, forward this message 2 them, hand deliver it, or call and read it 2 them. This is the message for this day and season in which we live.

And don't forget 2 ponder through that amazing Isaiah Scripture, and commit it 2 heart this season. I AM is greater than your trials and sufficient 4 every need. In trusting in Him, in staying your mind on Him, He will keep u in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3)! Wow, His promises and their fulfillments, just keep on coming!
Richest blessings 2 u,

3 of 31 Reasons People Do Not Receive Their Financial Harvest

========     ~ Psalms 20:7 ~  "Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God."

    Networking Hands - Uloni
     Your harvest comes through people, not from people.
     How do u know when u are depending on men, instead of God?  When u get angry at the boss who fails 2 give u the desired raise. U blame him, not God.  When u become furious bcoz a loved one turns u down 4 a loan, that is the proof that u believe in your heart that your financial source is really them instead of God.
      That is why millions will never receive a financial harvest.  They are sitting at the wrong door waiting 4 their blessing.
     Yes, it hurts inside when your character, efforts and diligence are not acknowledged by others.  but, u must remember all promotion originates from God "For promotion cometh neither from the East, nor from the West, nor from the South.  But God is the judge: He putteth down one, and setteth up another" (Psalms 75:6-7).
     U must believe this or u will never experience supernatural increase.  God wants 2b trusted.  He will not give His glory 2 another.  He is the Source that put favor in the heart of Potiphar toward Joseph.  He is the One who reminded the butler 2 tell Pharaoh about the gifts of interpretation in Joseph.  Joseph went from the prison into the palace within 24 hours.  Why?  He trusted God, the Source of his promotion.  he did not look 2 men.  He depended on God.
     David, who also experienced the incredible quickness of a promotion, understood this: "Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God" (Psalms 20:7).
     Recently, I had the unfortunate experience of sitting at a restaurant table w/a circle of complainers.  EVery one began 2 explain why their financial circumstances were so dismal.
     "My boss is stingy, " commented one.  "He has not given a raise 2 anyone in our company in over 3 years."  Inside I was shaking my head.  It was a never ending conversation.  I have heard a 1000 similar conversations in my lifetime--people explaining why they have not received their financial harvest.  Fact:  they ignored God, their true Source.  U will only nurture a relationship that promises a reward.  If u truly recognize God as your Source, u will continuously be nurturing your relationship w/Him.  This guarantees your financial future.
     It happened 4 me in Philadelphia.  After I walked back  the study, the secretary of the pastor said, "Dr. Mike, we took out a half of your offering tonight 4 the church." "Why?"  "Well, we did not know it was going 2b this large of an offering."
     I replied, "U received a letter from my office.  The policy of our ministry is that the love offering at the conclusion of each service I speak in is given 4 our ministry outreach and evangelism.  it is obvious that u have a problem.  Please take the whole entire offering 4 yourself.  I refuse 2 enter into a controversy over money.  I will not touch it.  I will not take a penny.  I already have a Jehovah-Jireh in my life who will provide 4 me."
      I was not trying 2b cute or cocky.
     If I  had thought  4 one moment that my financial income was dependent on people instead of God, I would have become so angry.  But, I remind myself continuously that my true Source is God.  He chooses who will become the channels 2 bless my life.
     Your own Seed controls your Harvest.  It is not the giving of others that determines your income.  It is your own giving that will determine your income.
     I had  a powerful experience in one of my wisdom conferences several years ago.  I felt the Holy Spirit speak 2 me about 40 people who would plant a Seed of $10,000.  As soon as I spoke, 40 people jumped up and came and stood in line, each representing a Seed of $10,000.  After we prayed, the Holy Spirit spoke a 2nd  Instruction 2 me.  "Tell them this is simply an Isaac offering.  I just wanted 2C if they would be obedient and willing 2 do as I command.  do not accept their offering.  Consider it already given.  Tell them 2 keep it and expect 99 more harvests coming according 2 My Word in Mark 10:28-30."
     Forty people walked back 2 their seat, and I was left with 'no offering" 4 my ministry.
     Several ministers met in my hotel room after the service.  "Mike, how did u feel watching $400,000 walk out of that room?"
     Well, I was honest w/them.  Inside my heart, I had already spent $400,000 on TV programs.  I was praising God inside, thanking Him 4 the largest offering I had ever received in my ministry.  But, God had chosen 2 turn it into a Seed 4 my future Harvest.
     What did this mean?  God had just given me the ability 2 plant a $400,000 Seed in a single day.  Had I kept it, that would have been my Harvest.  Sowing it made it a Seed, the least it would ever be.
     What u can walk away from, u have mastered.   When u can walk away from money, u have mastered it.  What u walk away from determines what God will bring 2 u.
     Quit looking 2 men 4 your financial Harvest.  Be thankful.  Be gracious when receiving thru people.  But, keep yourself reminded every hour of your life that the Source of every good thing  is the One who created u.  "But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: 4 it is He that giveth thee power 2 get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He sware unto they fathers, as it is this day" (Deuteronomy 8:18).
     When u focus your total dependency on God, u will C the most incredible flow of harvests u have ever experienced in your lifetime.

Fear Not

Having heard that there are 365 Fear Nots in the Word of God, I consider this a worthy list to include for those needing encouragement and help in those times of need. In my search I am amazed 2 discover that the precious Holy Spirit 'knits' things together in a person's life much like Branches stem out from a single Tree. With great Joy, I will add what I find so this post will be under construction for now...* Note: As the precious Holy Spirit brings Anointing, I will include His words as notes acompanying the Refs.
Thank You Holy Spirit, 4 when my heart is troubled, I can run into Your Arms and hide myself in Your Hope that I am not alone.

When you walk  thru the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.  V3: For I AM the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior, I give Egypt, for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead.
Note: When you put your name there it becomes more personal that as My child, I love you.

06. Overshadowing Care     Mtt 10:30,31     And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  V31:  So dont be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. [Mtt 28:5; Lk 12:32]
