To One of the Ninety-Nine

Dear Little One,

I have heard your heart’s cry, though you think I AM far away.

I see your fear, I feel your strain, and I know you have lost your way. But My Heart, it’s oh so very tender toward you; though you feel the Heavens are as brass.

In times of chaos and unrest, I ask you to step into the Cleft. Hidden in the Rock, is where I bid you come. Now is not a time to search by feelings, for ‘feelings’ would betray you. Now is not a time to ‘hunker down,’ although the isolation would seem to put you there.

Now is a time to search, for the lost are everywhere.

My child do you see, that but for I go thee? For you too were once lost. I ask you to remember. It is easy, so easy to forget, that that was once you!

The fear, the stumbling in the dark. A heart that feels clenched, for there’s no foot-hold, no path to lead the way–-show them, for you know. You have the light, and the path you do see–that path that leads to Me.

Imagine what you face today, without a trace of Me.

And then run to another, do whatever you can do, to show them the One who is True.

Please bring them to Me, for I love them too!

And so, you thought it was you that was lost. For you didn’t feel or see Me. No, you were given a gift–a glimpse into the heart of another, of one that doesn’t know the way.

I leave the ninety-nine, to seek the one that is lost. Will you come with Me–would you join Me? Your place is inside of Me, hidden in the Cleft.

Come we must seek, for the days are bleak. Many are lost today. Not one, but many are lost today.

PRAY!

“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost, until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost.’ Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.” Luke 15:4-7

“I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their word, that they may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” John 17:20-21

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, who abides in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.’ For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence; he will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and a buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.” Psalms 91:1-6

Do not hold back from supporting ministries that are preaching the gospel around the world. They serve the Lord and are reaching places you may never see. When you support the preaching of the gospel, you support the Lord’s work and hasten our coming Lord, King Jesus!

Flying Safe!

A plane may have flown a thousand flights, with an experienced pilot at the helm, yet could easily crash and burn without outside guidance.

Some decisions must not be made on your own; you need guidance from above, from one who sees the whole picture and your future.

You must pray!

Do you understand that, without Me, you wouldn’t have an inkling of where to go? Many fly on autopilot and don’t realize I AM guiding.

Be more aware of My guidance in your life–My direction.

Be actively involved.

Pray with an expectation to hear, for I AM here and I wish to speak to you. I wish to be involved in your process, not just called upon when you are hurting or have lost your way.

I AM Friend.

I AM Family.

I AM the Voice you hear–tune in so I AM clear!

When you consider the way–I AM!

“Yea, thou dost light my lamp; the Lord my God lightens my darkness. Yea, by my God I can leap over a wall. This God–his way is perfect; the promise of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him. For who is God, but the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God? The God who girded me with strength, and made my way safe. He made my feet like hinds’ feet, and set me secure on the heights. He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. Thou hast given me the shield of thy salvation, and thy right had supported me, and thy help made me great. Thou didst give a wide place for my steps under me, and my feet did not slip.” Psalms 18:28-36

“Let me hear in the morning of thy steadfast love, for in thee do I put my trust. Teach me the way I should go, for to thee I lift up my soul. Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies! I have fled to thee for refuge! Teach me to do thy will, for thou art my God! Let thy good spirit lead me on a level path!” Psalms 143:8-10

“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. The Lord is the strength of his people, he is the saving refuge of his anointed. O save thy people, and bless thy heritage; be thou their shepherd, and carry them forever.” Psalms 28:6-9

It’s Getting Dark, Got Light?

Just as in the days of Noah, people were eating and drinking; unconcerned about the times and the seasons. So shall it be at the end.

Many will fall, for they were not watching.

Many are watchful, but do not warn.

“What will they think of me if I say too much?”

“I don’t want to make them uncomfortable.”

It is for comfort they fall, but, then, where will they find comfort?

For Comfort is in Me.

Truly, you who finds My Comfort, awaken those who are near AND those who are afar. For one might not receive from one who is near, but would believe one from afar. Another may not trust one from afar, but believe those who are near.

Cast your bread upon many waters. Sowing, morning, noon and night.

Alert those you know and those you don’t, as the day turns quickly to night!

“But of that day or that hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch; for you do not know when the time will come. It is like a man going on a journey, when he leaves home and puts his servants in charge, each with his work, and commands the doorkeeper to be on the watch. Watch therefore–for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or in the morning–lest he come suddenly and find you asleep. And what I say to you I say to all: Watch.” Mark 13:32-37

“But what does it say? The word is near you, on your lips and in your heart (that is the word of faith which we preach); because if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For man believes with his heart and so is justified, and he confesses with his lips and so is saved. The scripture says, “No one who believes in Him will be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and bestows His riches upon all who call upon Him. For, “every one who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.” But how are men to call upon him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without a preacher? And how can men preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach good news!” But they have not all obeyed the gospel; for Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?” So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes by the preaching of Christ.” Romans 10:8-17

“For thou, O Lord, art most high over all the earth; thou art exalted far above all gods. The Lord loves those who hate evil; He preserves the lives of his saints; He delivers them from the hand of the wicked. Light dawns for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous, and give thanks to His Holy Name!” Psalms 97:10-12

What Were They Thinking?

Sadness is not a condition of the heart, it first begins in your mind.

Your mind, when left unchecked, will multiply thoughts quickly; clouding your process of thinking; blocking your understanding–

eventually enveloping you, to develop your mood for the day.

If you allow this to continue, it can become your way of life. Before you even realize it, you’ve worn it like a garment. A cloak then becomes a badge of honor when defensive; as others try to bring you back to the ‘you’ they know and care for.

Don’t start.

Guard your mind and your heart; for the two will collaborate and design a new life for you, that you may not wish to live.

Too many lose their life to their thoughts. “How could this be?” their loved ones say to me. “I was just with them–they seemed fine.”

But, left alone with their thoughts. . .

A fortress can build right quickly to change the course of your day, and even your life if you let these thoughts build. It is not a fortress to protect, but a fortress of neglect.

  • Brilliance does not come from confusion.
  • Joy does not arise in a cluttered mind and heart.

Think with purpose–think thoughts from above.

Tell your mind not to wander, and think on love.

I AM Love–think on Me!

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on the earth. For you have died, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.” Colossians 3:1-4

“Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:6-8

“O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!” Psalms 107:1

‘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!

From Start to Completion

One finger length extended out in front of another is winning, and yet I AM not having you compete with others; what I speak of is completion in you.

A finger turns the page.

That would seem like little effort and yet, that is what I ask–a little effort.

A little effort on your part is the start to completion.

Do you realize that if you just begin, you will find your heart will awaken to more? Many do not even open My Word and yet pray fervently for answers to their life.

I have answers–turn the page.

Extend your finger and I will extend the Hand of Completion.

I AM an open Book.

I AM the Word–do you know Me?

Turn the page.

“Then I Daniel looked, and behold, two others stood, one on this bank of the stream and one on that bank of the stream. And I said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream, “How long shall it be till the end of these wonders?” The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream, raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven; and I heard him swear by him who lives for ever that it would be for a time, two times, and half a time; and that when the shattering of the power of the holy people comes to an end all these things would be accomplished.” Daniel 12:5-7

“Many will be purified, made spotless, and refined, but the wicked will continue to act wickedly. None of the wicked will understand, but the wise will understand.” Daniel 12:10 BSB

“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

Right Place Right Time

Work with Me not for Me, for then it is not as work–it flows.

Allow the Holy Spirit to train your hands to move with your heart, as one, for therein am I.

“Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish thou the work of our hands upon us, yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.” Psalms 90:17

I have your next step already prepared. . . and the next. . . and the next.

But your concern should be that of your step.

I will consider your future, but you consider your step.

  • Does it follow My Word?
  • Does it flow with My Grace?
  • Do you understand its place?

For placement is just as important as timing, and it’s not a race if you don’t know your place–I will see you through each day.

You just keep in step!

Follow My pace–this is your race, for you took My place; just as I took yours, when we became one; that together we may run–to the finish!

It is finished.

For I know the end–I AM!

Do you know your place?

Then let’s run!

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10

“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5:15-17

I AM Coming Soon!

Announce to the world that I AM COMING!

It is expedient that everyone know that!

But, they’ve been hearing it for many years. . .

The world languishes under the weight of sin–it groans for release!

I cannot tary much longer, though I long to wait, for those whose fate is further captivity.

I AM THE GOD of FREEDOM. . .

their god is punishment.

I AM PEACE. . .

their god is torment.

I AM ABUNDANT. . .

their god is lack.

I DON’T HOLD BACK. . .

their god doesn’t give back.

Therefore the Righteous TAKETH BY FORCE!

Be FORCEFUL in your prayers–FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH!

You are fighting for the lost.

Stand like David–FACE THE GIANT with CONFIDENCE and FIGHT for your people. . .

those who don’t know you–your future brothers and sisters in Christ. . .

Those who don’t KNOW.

They are your neighbor–fight for them!

Fight to WIN!

Your BATTLE is in prayer–

and I AM there!

“For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love be servants of one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'” Galatians 5:13-14
