You have enjoyed reveling in My presence recently. Yes, there has been so much for which to be thankful. You have seen signs, wonders, miracles, and provision manifest in yourself and those around you. But…you have only just begun to see My display of the miraculous in your midst. Allow me to show you that no matter how you have seen My power at work among you, there is always another level of My power before you.
2 Corinthians 3:18 (NASB) “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.”
You please Me with your love and devotion to Me and with your love for others. I have watched you with joy as you live your life with standards that have their foundation in My Word. You have had many opportunities to become disappointed with your circumstances, but you have risen above those circumstances by turning to Me. Continue to look to Me and you will soon discover the elation that comes to those who seek Me.
2 Timothy 2:4 (NASB) “No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.”
Are your words clear and easy to understand or are they ambiguous and misleading? The words that I speak are absolutely clear and easy to understand. I have set an example of how to communicate My plans and purposes to those with whom you speak. Follow the example in My Word; do not use your words to try to impress those around you or to make yourself feel superior. Speak My Word with all humility and clarity.
Luke 18:10-14 (NASB) “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood and was praying this to himself: ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other people: swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I pay tithes of all that I get.’ But the tax collector, standing some distance away, was even unwilling to lift up his eyes to heaven, but was beating his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, the sinner!’ I tell you, this man went to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Your words are important; that means that when you say you will do something or say you will not, that is your bond. Your words should mean more than a piece of paper or a broken promise. My Word is true, every part of it. I have given you promises and those are completed in the heavenlies; I see them right before Me. Exercise your faith and trust Me to activate the manifestation of My promises.
2 Corinthians 1:20 (TPT) "For all of God’s promises find their “yes” of fulfillment in Him. And as His “yes” and our “amen” ascend to God, we bring Him glory!"
1 Kings 3:9 "So give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people to discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?" God instructs and tells us time after time that when we ask according to His Word, we WILL receive what we ask for…and He allows us to have those things that we declare, so…”BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU ASK FOR!”
There is a very basic principle of My plan and purpose for you that you may have overlooked. It is very simple, yet very profound. I Am! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last. Not only am I the first and the last, but I am everything in between. When you live with that understanding, your life will experience peace that passes all understanding. Live every day within the Alpha and Omega.
Revelation 1:8 (NASB) "I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty." Jonas Bohlin
Proverbs 16:23-24 (NASB)
The heart of the wise instructs his mouth And adds persuasiveness to his lips. Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
There is great power and authority given to us by our Father in heaven. That power is activated by our faith. Faith in Him brings us to a place of gratefulness and thankfulness. The by-product of our thankfulness is the authority to shape our world with our words. Let’s choose today to bring life with our words of thankfulness and blessing. He is the hope of the world and we are His mouthpiece.
