Clear Purpose

It is apparent that those who follow closely to My side, have trained their heart to abide. It wasn’t merely a ‘head’ decision; yes, they thought about it, but then took it deeper.

Meditation of a matter takes it deep into the heart of a man.

“May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the Lord.” Psalms 104:24

This form of ownership is what causes a man to follow closely, without needing to think every move through; it is just natural, for they naturally abide. That is when you know that you are no longer in ‘works’ but fellowship.

“–but the anointing which you received from him abides in you, and you have no need that any one should teach you; as his anointing teaches you about everything, and is true, and is no lie, just as it has taught you, abide in him.” I John 2:26-27

You know My heartbeat for you linger and languish at My side. It is a luxury that many do not afford themselves in these fast-paced days–to linger, to rest at My side.

Abide–listening to My desires, as I listen to yours…

  • Fellowship
  • Communion
  • Companionship
  • Love

Life is short, and the battle is hard, but for those who learn of Me, the way is clear; for I steer those who are near. They are not carried by the tide, but have clear purpose when I AM near–

when you abide.

“And by this we may be sure that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He who says ‘I know him’ but disobeys his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps his word, in him truly love for God is perfected. By this we may be sure that we are in him: he who says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.” I John 2:3-6

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If any one loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world passes away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides for ever.” I John 2:15-17

“Let what you heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, then you will abide in the Son and in the Father.” I John 2:24

“By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his own Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son as the Savior of the world.

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we know and believe the love God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. In this is love perfected in us, that we may have confidence in the day of judgment, because as he is so are we in this world.” I John 4:13-17

“But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all thy works.” Psalms 73:28

“Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart, who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways!” Psalms 119:2-3

“Blessed is every one who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways! You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.” Psalms 128:1-2

 

You Are Powerful!

Absolute confidence comes from knowing who you are in Christ–the anointing, which is your power. You are not to put your trust in the anointing, but to put your trust in Me; for I AM, and if you find your security in the I AM, the anointing will surely flow.

Knowing who you are and knowing ‘who you are’…

are two different things.

You can know your name, and receive your surname from your family line, but until you dig into generations of family dynamics you know very little of who you are. Dig deeply into who I AM, to find who you are, and then you will know your stature, for it comes from within–it comes from Me.

I AM your core power, the strength within you–no matter what you face in life…

I AM your strength.

I AM your answer.

I AM

You will do well to be prepared and not caught off balance when that strength is needed. Find Me within

I AM Strength, I AM Love, and if I AM your core power, that is who you are–full of power.

You are–

Powerful!

You know that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your fathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. He was destined before the foundation of the world but was made manifest at the end of the times for your sake. Through him you have confidence in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.” I Peter 1:18-21

“You have been born anew, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God–” I Peter 1:23

“–the anointing which you received from him abides in you, and you have no need that any one should teach you; as his anointing teaches you about everything, and is true, and is no lie, just as it has taught you, abide in him.” I John 2:27

“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature.” I Peter 1:3-4

“–I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with might through his Spirit in the inner man, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fulness of God. ” Ephesians 3:14-19

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts; so I am helped, and my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him. The Lord is the strength of his people, he is the saving refuge of his anointed.” Psalms 28:7-8

“Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21

 

Gifted Hands

Stir up the gift that is within you by the laying on of hands.

This practice has been greatly misunderstood. Many are the novices that are too quick to impart and extend their hand to another, foolishly, speaking anything that comes to mind; often of the flesh and not through My Spirit. Others have demeaned this practice and refused it as foolishness.

My Word says not to be ‘quick’ in the laying on of hands. It is meant to be an impartation in the Spirit. The elder blesses and exercises faith over the younger in the Lord. This is not determined by age, but the impartation of wisdom in the Spirit. There are times when a child shall lead.

Exercise faith through the laying on of hands…

  • Impartation of the anointing
  • Expression of wisdom, when spoken through faith in the Spirit
  • Strengthening faith in the one who receives by point of contact

All are good when done in faith through the wisdom of the Spirit and spoken rightly.

Let all things be in order, by faith, and in love.

“Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people; but Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.’ And he laid his hands on them and went away.” Matthew 19:13-15

“And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple, and he healed them. But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying out in the temple, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant; and they said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes; have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast brought perfect praise’?” Matthew 21:14-16

“Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you by prophetic utterance when the elders laid their hands upon you.” I Timothy 4:14

“Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:18-20

“Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, nor participate in another man’s sins; keep yourself pure.” I Timothy 5:22

“A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.” Proverbs 18:2

“Better is a poor and wise youth than an old and foolish king, who will no longer take advice–” Ecclesiastes 4:13a

“Guard your steps when you go to the house of God; to draw near to listen is better than to offer the sacrifice of fools; for they do not know that they are doing evil. Be not rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven, and you upon earth; therefore let your words be few. For a dream comes with much business, and a fool’s voice with many words.” Ecclesiastes 5:1-3

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:23-25

“Command and teach these things. Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.” I Timothy 4:11-12

“So, my brethren, earnestly desire to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues; but all things should be done decently and in order.” I Corinthians 14:39

 

My Glory

The anointing seals those who are Mine and, to the world, you shine!

Gloriously!

For My glory shall be seen over all the earth and My people will be radiant. But My glory is so much more than shine for those who love Me. It is the force that breaks the yoke–the anointing. It is lavished upon all who commune with Me.

  • Time spent together
  • Studying My Word
  • Applying My Word

Obliterates the residue of sin in your life–the old nature; that of the past that clings; old habits that mar and hinder…

Sin no longer has dominion over you–Your past has passed!

Commune with Me and shine in My glory. For if My people, would wear My anointing, the whole world would be aglow

and

All the world would see–

MY GLORY

“The true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world knew him not. He came to his own home, and his own people received him not. But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God; who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father.” Jn. 1:9-14
