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.


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–


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


Finding Confidence

Decisions are made by much deliberation but, truly, the best decisions come from looking within. For if you gaze into your heart, you can rely on the Holy Spirit to bring clarity and focus to your need; without the confusion that may enter your mind when you are simply trying too hard to ‘find’ the answer or ‘come up’ with a solution. Both of these indicate a man’s own interpretation to a situation or intervention to the solution and yet, the best decisions and answers come from your heart–sent from above.


  • I know the end from the beginning.
  • I know the minds and hearts of each one involved.
  • I know the parameters and limitations.
  • I know what you know and I know what you don’t know


Trust Me to guide you to the right solution.

Pray and seek wisdom.

Listen and look within.

I will surely not withhold; the good that you are seeking is the good that you will find.

Listening to your mind is like the blind leading the blind. Both will fall into a pit. So take no direction from your mind, but use your mind to follow My guidance from within. Your decisions and choices will be sure and confirmed.


True confidence you will find!

“–And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” Matthew 15:14b

“A wise man’s heart inclines him toward the right, but a fool’s heart toward the left.” Ecclesiastes 10:2

“My son, if your heart is wise, my heart too will be glad.” Proverbs 23:15

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all men generously and without reproaching, and it will be given him.” James 1:5

“–for God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and we receive from him whatever we ask, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.” I John 3:20b-22

“Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words. And he who searches the hearts of men knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:26-28

“Blessed be the Lord! For he has heard the voice of my supplications. 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.” Psalms 28:6-7


Draw Near

Draw near unto Me with full assurance and a pure heart; confident that I will perform My Word in your life. For if you believe with your whole heart, that My word is true, then you can know that it is impossible for Me to lie; it is impossible for Me to fail you.

Why do you fear child, as if I do not hear? What makes you think I don’t care; why the uncertainty?

  • Trust
  • Know
  • Believe

I have full confidence in you–a human that is frail. Will you have confidence in Me–a God of all power? I will prevail. Never be it said that I have let you down; it is impossible. I AM a God of all things possible to them that believe.

Stop casting blame on Me–on others.

Look to your own heart

Take responsibility



“And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly I say to you whoever says to¬† this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you receive it, and you will. And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against any one; so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” Mk. 11:22-26

“–With men it is impossible, but not with God, for all things are possible with God.” Mk. 10:27

“Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you; therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you.” Is. 30:18

“Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way which he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great high priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 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.” Heb. 10:19-25


A Time of Direction

There is coming a time of direction like there has never been before. Children listening to parents. Teenagers teaching others. Disciples learning from My Word like it is their last day on Earth. Commitment is the key to be in the flow of this great revival of learning. A committed determination to grow and to utilize the keys that I have given you will cause you to advance in the Kingdom at a rate that you thought impossible. For you have underestimated your abilities, by understating My Love, My Grace, and the work of the Holy Spirit within you.

Your confidence must remain in Me–put no confidence in the flesh, for apart from Me you can do nothing.

My work within you will cause impurities to rise to the surface. You may draw back at this, as you recognize areas that need to change. Displeasing habits will be revealed–not to embarrass you, or to cause shame, but to motivate action. When this happens–

  • Work

Work at it with all your heart. Work with diligence and determination to be free. Always remembering that it is not your “works” that brings the release, but the work of the Holy Spirit within you–

  • As you “work” the Word
  • Applying what you have learned
  • Until you see Victory!

“I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will council you with My eye upon you. Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, else it will not keep with you.” Psalms 32:8-9

“Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.” Luke 3:5-6

“And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do.”Jeremiah 18:4
