Running to Win!

Each one crossing the finish line cuts their own ribbon.

You are not reaching the line, ‘just behind,’ you reach it ‘just in time!’ Another will not steal your glory, for it is just for you!

Their glory is their own–what they have sown.

The race you face, the steps you place–you determine the pace; but you will place, for I will see you through!

I am your Trainer, your Coach, your All-in-All.

I will see that you don’t fall–you may have it all!

For I bought your place, when I ran My race.

My Blood told the tale for the human race.

Only Believe

Only Receive

Run that you may win!

Shall we begin?

Your Call!

Do you know that in a race all the runners compete, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.” I Corinthians 9:24-25

“And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, to know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.” I John 5:20

“For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory for ever. Amen.” Romans 11:36

‘Comfort In The Challenge’

“You don’t have to look far to find someone coping with a challenge. It may be a friend, co-worker, parent or child. Maybe you need only to look within. The list of trials in life is endless–the challenge within. But God knows the need, and He knows the heart of the one you love–He knows YOU!

‘Comfort in the Challenge’ is filled with messages spoken from the heart of God. Inside you will find that God loves you and He cares about you, personally, and what you care about matters to Him. He wants to take that care, in exchange, with His thoughts of Love, Hope, Healing, and Direction. He speaks to the need, He speaks to You, to bring you–‘Comfort In The Challenge.'”

All royalties for the life of this book will go directly to the ministry, Canaanland, of Autaugaville, Alabama. Canaanland, takes in men that have lost control of their lives to addiction and crime. Their tremendous (40 year) success rate has often prompted the judges of the surrounding area to offer, Canaanland, as an alternative to jail time. But, Canaanland, is not a bail from jail; it is a golden opportunity for those who truly want a new life! I have met some of these men and they are so full of joy that they absolutely shine–truly transformed by the love of God!

Canaanland charges nothing for a year stay; including room and board for their families as well, if necessary. I find the true dedication of Canaanland, in surrounding these men with love, and the life-changing power of the Word of God, to be unsurpassed. All is made possible through the dedication and hard work of these men, and generous donations of partner support.

It is their vision, to have a ‘Canaanland’ in every state, and my vision for this book, to help them realize this goal. Will you join me in helping these men and their families receive a new life? Will you consider purchasing ‘Comfort in the Challenge’ for your friends, loved ones, for yourself–for Canaanland? The books are beautiful and I am over-the-top excited for you to receive yours!

Love so Amazing

The one that comes last, gets the best of all–

he gets to see the Beginning from the End!

Never has one seen anything so amazing–so spectacular!

Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard what has been prepared for those who love Me…

It is the beginning

from the end.

For those who don’t–it is the end and that’s final.

You choose!

“–as it is written, ‘What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him,’ God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.” II Corinthians 2:9-10

“You know that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your fathers, not with perishable things such as silver and 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

“For this we declare to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, shall not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the archangel’s call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first; then we who are alive, who are left, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.” I Thessalonians 4:15-18

A Perfect Life

There is a misconception about perfection. Most see this as a state to obtain–as if they alone have the power to become perfect. Be ye perfect, as I AM perfect; Be ye as I AM. I did nothing apart from the Father; I listened and said what I heard the Father speak; I did what the Father said do. I laid My life down that I may be glorified by My Father.

“Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing; for whatever he does, that the Son does likewise.'” John 5:19

“Jesus answered, “If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing; it is my Father who glorifies me, of whom you say that he is your God.”” John 8:54

“I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.” John 10:14-15

Understand there is no perfection outside of My Blood.

For all have sinned and fallen short; all have need of a Savior. Perfection began as a child; grew in knowledge and understanding; became obedient–even unto death, that life might come for all mankind.

“–since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God; they are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as an expiation by his blood, to be received by faith.” Romans 3:23-25a

The Perfect Life

You have the ability to achieve this by beginning at the end. By laying down your life, you begin anew–as if I was you.

“Truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If any one serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there shall my servant be also; if any one serves me, the Father will honor him.” John 12:24-26

Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me,

for I AM gentle and lowly; learn and you will grow. Learn that you may know, that the perfect life is the perfect sacrifice already made for thee.

“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-29

Begin at the end that you may begin again…

“Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”” John 3:3

Perfection obtained through Me.

“The glory which thou hast given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and thou in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that thou hast sent me and hast loved them even as thou hast loved me.” John 17:22-23

“None of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord; so then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.” Romans 14:7-9

“I appeal to you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:1-2

“You therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Matthew 5:48

 

 

Lifetime Guaranteed

The night is far spent, let all men repent, and see Me for who I truly AM–your Deliverance!

“He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:13-14

The scapegoat was sent out of the camp to carry the sins away.

“But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.” Leviticus 16:10 KJV

I was made to be sin, that you may know no sin…

as if it had never been.

Do you believe?

Then receive.

Understand that you do not carry the sin any longer–I do.

“And you, who once were estranged and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and irreproachable before him–” Colossians 1:21-22

The sin of the world was laid upon Me, in exchange–

My Blood

“He entered once for all into the Holy Place, taking not the blood of goats and calves but his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.” Hebrews 9:12

“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace which he lavished upon us.” Ephesians 1:7-8

So easy for you to do and yet so many fear the exchange, think it strange, and simply turn away. That is simple too–to turn away; to live your life as if I never was. Your pride becomes your cause, with a will stronger than what binds. But when that day comes–when fear strikes your heart–that ending part, yes, the hard part…

Your knee will bow and pride will fall, as you confess–your life a mess. Without Me there’s no future. Without Me, no life-long dream–all gone.

Turn around. Look at Me.

There’s nothing to fear, and I’m still here. Simply repent, for the night is far spent. A simple exchange–Lifetime guaranteed!

“Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. By myself I have sworn, from my mouth has gone forth in righteousness a word that shall not return: ‘To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.’ “Only in the Lord, it shall be said of me, are righteousness and strength; to him shall come and be ashamed, all who were incensed against him.”” Isaiah 45:22-24

“Truly no man can ransom himself, or give to God the price of his life, for the ransom of his life is costly, and can never suffice, that he should continue to live on for ever, and never see the Pit.” Psalms 49:7-9

“And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who has not the Son of God has not life.” I John 4:11-12

“And just as it is appointed for men to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.” Hebrews 9:27-28

“See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. For if they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less shall we escape if we reject him who warns from heaven. His voice then shook the earth; but now he has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heaven.”” This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of what is shaken, as of what has been made, in order that what cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:25-29

“Because he cleaves to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him my salvation.” Psalms 91:14-16

“No one who denies the Son has the Father. He who confesses the Son has the Father also. 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. And this is what he has promised us, eternal life.” I John 2:23-25

 

 

Enough

You have My seal of approval on you; it is My mark written upon your life for all to see. This mark states that you are Mine, and that no one can harm you. It is the same mark as the blood that swathed the doorpost when  the Angel of Death passed through. That blood said to pass by–don’t stop here; as if it had spoken.

You are Mine and you are held fast by My Blood. It is irreplaceable and unshakable–as are you.

Will you then stop questioning who you are, why your are here, and if you are doing enough?

Enough

Understand that when Satan and all demons, principalities, powers of darkness–whatever name you choose to give to those who have rebelled and lost their place–fallen from My Grace; when they see you, they tremble and fear, for it is not you they see but, My Blood. It is written on your forehead as if it speaks and for all the world to see–My seal of approval.

You are Mine!

Any questions?

It is Enough

“For the Lord will pass through to slay the Egyptians; and when he sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not allow the destroyer to enter your houses to slay you.” Exodus 12:23-24

“It shall be as a mark on your hand or frontlets between your eyes;  for by a strong hand the Lord brought us out of Egypt.” Exodus 13:16

“But God’s firm foundation stands, bearing this seal: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Let every one who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity.” In a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and earthenware, and some for noble use, some for ignoble. If any one purifies himself from what is ignoble, then he will be a vessel for noble use, consecrated and useful to the master of the house, ready for any good work. So shun youthful passions and aim at righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call upon the Lord from a pure heart.” II Timothy 2:19-22

“Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for edifying, as fits the occasion, that it may impart grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, in whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.” Ephesians 4:29-30

“If what you have heard from the beginning abides in you, then you will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is what he has promised us, eternal life.” I John 2:24-25

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me; and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” John 10:27-30

“And now I am no more in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to thee, Holy Father, keep them in thy name, which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we are one. While I was with them, I kept them in thy name, which thou has given me; I have guarded them, and none of them is lost but the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled. But now I am coming to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them thy word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I do not pray that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; thy word is truth. As thou didst send me into the world. And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated in truth.” John 17:11-19

 

 

Super-Naturally

Frustrations come when one attempts to ‘work’ with his own might. Man has been given strength to function in day-to-day tasks but, beyond daily living, the strength needed must come from above.

Supernatural strength is given, not earned

Good works are the fruit of obedience, but unlike mans’ ways, I do not award ‘points’ for being good. Every man begins a supernatural life by receiving My shed Blood. Your repentance releases your hold on the old. My Blood washes it all away–I never see it again, and neither should you.

A relinquished life has no hold on you

and you should no longer lay hold of it. Now, see what I see–

  • A man that is brand new
  • Never has sinned
  • He has no faults

Complete in every way–simply by My Blood

So why would you need to earn points? No, rather, supernatural strength is given when the need for it arises. When you use what you have, more will be given. As you grow, so increases the requirement. Much like body building, but this My son, My daughter, is supernatural power!

You can fight a battle in the heavenlies without leaving your room–now that is power! And that is only the beginning. The ‘point’ therefore, I AM making is this–

Work with Me, not for Me

If you are working ‘for’ Me, you will earn wages for a job complete. Work ‘with’ Me, and you as a son I treat. I will teach you to walk as a king, to battle as a warrior–salvation it will bring to those you meet.

The devil I did defeat, but a war continues for each soul.

It is My desire that all would know the Truth, receive My Love, and therefore repent and be saved–as did you. You are now My warrior–empowered.

Super-Naturally

“–we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all. And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. but when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, then to wait until his enemies should be made a stool for his feet. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are sanctified. And the Holy Spirit also bears witness to us; for after saying, ‘This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds,’ then he adds, ‘I will remember their sins and their misdeeds no more.'” Hebrews 10:10b-17

“–thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be preached in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.” Luke 24:46-47

“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.” II Peter 1:3-4

“–God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So through God you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son then an heir.” Galatians 4:4b-7

“–The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary, his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles.” Isaiah 40:28-31

“Fear not, for I am with you, be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand. Behold, all who are incensed against you shall be put to shame and confounded; those who strive against you shall be as nothing and shall perish. you shall seek those who contend with you, but you shall not find them; those who war against you shall be as nothing at all. For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.'” Isaiah 41:10-13

“Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle; my rock and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield and he in whom I take refuge, who subdues the peoples under him.” Psalms 144:1-2

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:10-12

 

 

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
