DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS – 113

“For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, As the waters cover the sea. – Habakkuk 2:14
The glory of God is going to cover the earth as the waters cover the sea and He’s going to do it through us. We are unified in our hunger and pursuit of Him. We know there is more, and God is going to trust us to steward His presence, power, and glory in fresh new ways in the coming year. It is important that our hearts and priorities are in order personally and corporately, and as a result, they will transition from the edge of glory, into fresh new levels of glory; bringing with it life-changing revelations and encounters like we have never known!
Spiritual alignments are important. There has never been a more CRITICAL TIME to know that you are rightly aligned with your CALLING in Christ. Don’t get stuck in the familiar with all you have ever known…know deep within that God is calling you out upon the uncharted waters to be grafted into something glorious.
However, just as the physical rain came during the time of Elijah, there are fresh rains of glory that are going to confront the enemy who seeks to destroy people and families. Embrace the refreshing healing rain is going to wash over as you allow God to put your life into order and you yield to the refining fires that will bring forth the glory! Receive the healing rains of His presence, for you are about to come out gold! Don’t give up now. We’re on the edge of glory!
“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. – Colossians 1:27

 

 
Genesis 28:10,12 – “Now Jacob went out from Beersheba and went toward Haran. Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.”

Like the ladder, Jesus dwelt in two places at the same time, in the earth and in the heavens. He is the access point between those two realms. When Jesus told Nathanael that he would see heaven open, He meant that he would see that Jesus is the ladder between the earth and heaven that is wide open to mankind. To Nathanael, He revealed heaven’s open availability to the believer. In other words, the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand (available).

John 1:51 – And He said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.”

 

 

Your time in communion with the Lord will raise you to that “Come up here, let me show you something you didn’t know before” place for substantial breakthrough.
“I saw a door open in heaven and heard the same voice speaking to me, the voice like a trumpet, saying ‘Come up here: I will show you what is to come in the future.'” – Revelation 4:1

When the Word becomes as a burning fire in your heart and bones your focus will be on harvest and it won’t be denied you. Because freely you have received the Word and freely you give of the powerful Word of the Lord.

To be effective we must minister according to His energy, or His power in our lives.

Ten Power Exhortations – January 17, 2018

2 Corinthians 10:4 – “The weapons we use in our fight are not the world’s weapons, but God’s powerful weapons with which to destroy strongholds.”

We deal with the devil by dealing with the carnal thought systems, the strongholds, that protect the enemy. The pulling down of strongholds begins with repentance.

The energies we expend in keeping our sins secret are the actual “Materials” of which a stronghold is made. The demon you are fighting is using your thoughts to protect his access to your life.

AFFIRMATIONS:

The glory of the Lord has risen upon me. I express radiance as my heart thrills and rejoices.

I keep the Word before me until I receive a revelation of Jesus as my healer or my deliverer or whatever I need Him to be.
I refuse to settle for a shallow mental understanding of Jesus.

 
Silence those negative voices. Forget the cutting remarks of relatives. Dismiss the crippling theories of misguided counselors. Rebuke your self-doubt and turn off the broken record of your past failures. Let God redefine you. He alone decides your true potential.
“Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17
God’s dynamite (dunamis) power reigns and rules by the strength of the Holy Spirit in our inner man, standing strong and firm in the things of the Lord.
“Be strengthened with might through His Spirit..” Ephesians 3:16

The most radical social teaching of Jesus was his total reversal of the contemporary notion of greatness. Leadership is found in becoming the servant of all. Power is discovered in submission. The foremost symbol of this radical servanthood is the cross.

“He (Jesus) humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross.” – Philippians 2:8

Affirmation:

I make a fresh commitment to walk in union with God. I give my attention to His Spirit in my inner man.

We must pray for those we know are lost for their hearts to be seasoned by God, so they can be drawn by the Holy Spirit to receive the Lord as their personal Savior. Let us release the Holy Spirit’s action, through prayer to draw all people to the Father.

You cannot sit at the Lord’s feet while you are running around on your own feet. Stop being Martha, if you don’t, you cannot be Mary (Luke 10:38-41).
We must so live in God that the Spirit of God can operate through us. God is waiting to manifest His divine power through believers.

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to the Father.” – John 14:12
“Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.” (Romans 12:14)

Learn the art of blessing, for in blessing a thing or a person, that thing or person must bless you. When you bless, blessings will be drawn to you, or as Deuteronomy 28:2 says, “blessings shall come upon you and overtake you. “ Conversely, in cursing a thing or a person, you draw curses upon yourself.

 
There was no room for Him in the inn, so that there will always be room at the cross for your healing, deliverance, wholeness and prosperity and a mansion in heaven waiting for you!

 
It should be the goal of every believer to have the light that is in them to have more influence over their environment than any power or philosophy from hell ever could.

“You are the light of the world. Let your light shine before men…” – Matthew 5:14,16

REACHING THROUGH TO HIM – Meditations

 

How many times do we try to reach through to Him – we pray, we fast, we read His Word, we worship? 

The enemy tries to block you, but how easy it is to come into His presence when you declare He is Lord; because he must bow down. “For greater is He that is within you, than he that is in the world.”

What you need right now, whether it be your children, your spouse, your finances, your health, lift it up to Him right now, for He can make all things whole. Like the woman with the issue of blood, she pressed through, and He made her whole.
The man who had the legion of demons – he was insane — he cried out with what little bit he could and He made Him whole.
The man who couldn’t walk, even his parents were afraid. But He goes beyond circumstances and establishes wholeness, for He is the God of wholeness – the Alpha, the Omega.

Allow Him to come in and take down any wall, any kind of hindrance, whether it be a large wall that you’ve been hitting your head against for years, or whether it be a teeny, tiny, picket fence – anything that would block His presence, from just devouring you, to where you could be swallowed up in the goodness of God. To where fear could not find a landing place, but faith would be the landing place.

Faith conquers all fear. Don’t make Him small. Understand, the King of the universe came to serve, to set free, to save and to heal, and to bring the good news that the Kingdom of God is not only around you, but is within you. Let His Kingdom come forth.

Continue to pray His Kingdom come. Continue to pray His will be done. For, yes, He brought His Kingdom to earth – for you are of another Kingdom, as well as you are of another Spirit.

Let His Spirit lift you up, from glory to glory – then you can look down and come to understand who you were called to be. For He is looking for a hungry people, a trustworthy people, overseers in His Kingdom, overseers in His vineyard – whether they have pain or whether they have strength; whether they have fame, or whether they be hidden; it makes no difference. He looks at the hearts of His own.

“That He would grant you grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man….that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.” – Ephesians 3:16,19

DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS – 112

“He who opens the breach goes up before them; they break through and pass the gate, going out by it. Their king passes on before them, the Lord at their head.” – Micah 2:13
This is your time to advance. God is setting before us new doors of opportunity to step through “because a great door for effective work has opened to me” – 1 Corinthians 16:9). Effective means: able to accomplish a purpose; functioning effectively, to achieve a striking result.
God is opening a way where the opposition before you cannot stand. He will make a gap in and breakthrough (a wall, barrier, or defense) so you can enter into the land. God is the God of the breakthrough.
“And David came to Baal-perazim, and David defeated them there. And he said, ‘The Lord has burst (BROKE OUT) through my enemies before me like a bursting flood.’ Therefore the name of that place is called Baal-perazim” – 2 Samuel 5:20.

Baal-perazim means Lord (Master) of breaking through. When He breaks through, you will break out!
Breakthrough is God waiting on us to respond in obedience to what He has already commanded and promised. Breakthrough happens when we take the first offensive step against the barriers in our life. Breakthrough happens when we say, “I’m going to trust that God is going to supernaturally do the impossible.”
“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us.” – Ephesians 3:20

 

 

Revelation 12:10 – Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ. For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.”

The unholy spirit wants to entice us away from the call of God on our lives — our godly principles of conduct — by specializing in persuading us to forget our purpose and destiny. If Satan doesn’t get us drawn into un-forgiveness, bitterness and rebellion he will try to get us into being self-righteous. We begin to accuse, judge, and criticize because we are feeling pretty good about how we are doing.

Observation:

WHEN I PERCEIVE GOSSIP OR CRITICISM, I STOP THE OFFENDER FROM SPEAKING AND ENTREAT HIM TO INTERCEDE, AS JESUS DOES, FOR THAT PERSON OR SITUATION. MY EARS ARE HOLY, AND I DO NOT LET THEM COME INTO AGREEMENT WITH THE ACCUSER OF THE BRETHREN.

 

 

Song of Solomon 4:15 – “A fountain of gardens, a well of living water, and streams flowing strongly from Lebanon.”

THE BRIDEGROOM (JESUS) IS A WELL OF LIVING WATERS. THESE WATERS DESCEND FROM THE BRIDEGROOM THROUGH THE BRIDE (THE CHURCH). STREAMS OF WATER FLOW WILDLY FROM THE DEPTHS OF GOD, REPRESENTED BY MOUNT LEBANON. THESE STREAMS OVERFLOW THE WHOLE EARTH, WHICH REPRESENTS ALL THOSE WHO TRULY WANT TO ENTER INTO THE DEEP FELLOWSHIP OF CHRIST. YOU MUST BE WILLING TO ENDURE THE WORK IN ORDER TO ENJOY THE FRUITS.

LIVING FRESH IN HIS STRENGTH

Now is the time to realize that the Lord desires to empower us to move from our current ability to a new level of power strength, or a greater ability of potential in the Lord. This increase is not a one-time touch but a constant and ever-increasing flow of the spirit of might. It will empower us to press through any and all obstacles, limitations, and fears to advance with a perseverance of progressive breakthrough in order to take new levels in God’sPURPOSE for our life.

When we stay fresh in the strength of the Lord, we will increase in strength in the Spirit.

In the Amplified Bible, Philippians 4:13 says, “I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ sufficiency].”

WE CONFESS THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN US

We can draw on and see increase in His might in our lives on a daily basis. In this flow, we will be empowered by the Holy Spirit and live in fresh strength, inspiration, joy, and confidence in the Lord.

” that He may give to you, according to the riches of His glory, with might to be strengthened through His Spirit, in regard to the inner man,” – Ephesians 3:16

We will be empowered by the Lord in supernatural strength in the inner person in order to believe the impossible is possible and to press through all obstacles.

As we advance in this New Season we are blazing new trails in His divine CALLING in Christ for our lives that will impact us, our families, and people around us.

BELIEVING FOR BREAKTHROUGH AND THE POTENTIAL IT BRINGS

We must stay fresh in His strength and not become weary, giving into discouragement and disappointment. We must stay fresh in Him and sensitive to the Spirit of the Lord as He leads us into a new era of breakthrough that has the potential of touching thousands in the coming years.
This expectation is so important in the coming days. We need to live in a fresh increase flow of the strength of the Lord on a daily basis. As we advance forward in the glory in this season, we stay fresh in His strength through our belief in Christ living through us.
In His provision of the constant and ever-increasing flow of might, we can live in supernatural strength that will cause us to move forward in our vision and DESTINY and to go into new spheres and territories that He has made available to us.

DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS – 111

1 Peter 5:6, – “Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.”
Align your heart with His and listen to hear Him speak. Take hold of the new assignments and positions that the Lord is giving you and step out with boldness, knowing He will equip you with everything you need. The Lord wants to use you to bring His love, glory and the power of His Spirit to the earth and He is enlarging your area of impact for Him!

 

 

Mark 4:14,15 – “The sower sows the Word. The ones along the path are those who have the Word sown in their hearts, but when they hear, Satan comes at once and by force takes away the message which is sown in them.”

Affirmations:

I DONT QUIT BELIEVING! I DON’T QUIT CONFESSING THE WORD.

I DON’T LET PRESSURE CAUSE ME TO SPEAK NEGATIVE, UNBELIEVING WORDS THAT GIVE THE ENEMY LICENSE TO OPERATE IN MY LIFE.

I DON’T FOCUS ON CIRCUMSTANCES OR TALK ABOUT THEM. INSTEAD, I TALK TO THEM!

Mark 11:23 – “Truly I tell you, whoever SAYS TO THIS MOUNTAIN, be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him.”

 

 

Song of Solomon 4:13 – “Your plants are a paradise of pomegranates, with the fruits of the orchard, cypress with spikenard.”

THE BRIDE’S (MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH) FRUITFULNESS WILL BE SO GREAT THAT SHE SHALL BE LIKE A PARADISE OF POMEGRANATES. AS THE POMEGRANATE GIVES NOURISHMENT TO EACH OF ITS SEEDS, SO THE SPIRIT OF GOD WILL REVEAL HIMSELF TO HIS BRIDE IN DIFFERENT WAYS AND IN DIFFERENT SITUATIONS.

ASCENDING TO A NEW FAITH REALM – Meditations

John 8:36 – “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”

Loose yourself from all entanglements, soul ties, dead works, wrong relationships, wrong mindsets. Break free from everything that hinders the work of His Spirit in your lives. No weights, no cords, no bindings, no tubes connected or having an access point into your lives.

Be free from all false expectations, man’s expectations, religious expectations; every expectation that does not come from the hope and expectancy that He gives to you. So you must be emptied of all the things that hold you in the earthly realm, repent and turn away from those things that break His heart.

Set your priorities in order for He is taking you into another realm of your faith walk.
You are going from Faith to Faith and Glory to Glory.
He is taking you into a new faith realm where miracles happen and mountains move and dreams and words are fulfilled in this time — this is a Holy time and a Holy Moment.

HE IS THE GOD OF PROMISE

This is not a new level, for a level is only one plain higher and is restricted by boundaries, but this is a New Realm of His Glory, of His Presence; this Realm fills and reaches every part of the atmosphere where you are—it is Heaven touching earth. It is His Heavenly Atmosphere, His love reaching to the depth of your being; this is His being poured out upon you and manifesting in you.

This realm is His Kingdom in you; this is dominion, your CALLING in Christ, your place in His Kingdom. So step in, step out of the boat and walk on the water in this New Faith Realm—ONLY BELIEVE and you will receive.

Rom 1:17 – “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, ‘The just shall live by faith.'”

2 Cor 3:17 – “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

2 Cor 3:18 – “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
