Daily Bread

Listen

So many do not listen . . .

  • within
  • to others
  • to Me

I AM searching for those who choose to listen–really listen.

Accept who you are and move on to others; for when you accept yourself, you have time for another, and another, and again . . . another.

You are not busy speaking of yourself, to affirm yourself through another. You are, rather, listening to them–affirming them.

I need you to do that–will you listen?

As you take on the active role of a listener, I AM revealing to you their need. Not to expose them, but to reveal the needed seed.

  • Food for the multitudes.
  • Bread for the eater.

For they are hungry–meet the need . . . plant a seed.

You are not required to meet their every need, not even many. Just plant a seed. You will know them, for they will be hungry!

Give them fresh bread.

Meet the need.

“Give us this day our daily bread.” Matthew 6:11

“‘Because the poor are despoiled, because the needy groan, I will now arise,’ says the Lord; ‘I will place him in the safety for which he longs.’ The promises of the Lord are promises that are pure, silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times.” Psalms 12:5-6

“The end of all things is at hand; therefore keep sane and sober for your prayers. Above all hold unfailing your love for one another, since love covers a multitude of sins. Practice hospitality ungrudgingly to one another. as each has received a gift, employ it for one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace; whoever speaks, as one who utters oracles of God; whoever renders service, as one who renders it by the strength which God supplies; in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” I Peter 4:7-11

“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. For this very reason make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these things are yours and abound, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” II Peter 1:3-11

“Do thou, O Lord, protect us, guard us ever from this generation. On every side the wicked prowl, as vileness is exalted among the sons of men.” Psalms 12:7-8

“The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know thy name put their trust in thee, for thou, O Lord, hast not forsaken those who seek thee.” Psalms 9:9-10

 

Having Not a Tare in the World!

When it seems as though there are traps set for you at every turn, remember this: I have allowed the tares to remain with the wheat until the very end.

I will not take those who oppose you out from your midst; but I teach you how to step lightly around the snares the enemy would set for you.

Consider this: It is not always your enemy, but your own emotions that get in the way of progress. If it seems as though you stumble, when you find agitation confronting you–run to peace!

Come and Abide.

Look within and face your feelings–don’t run from them.

You are LOVED–remember that!

Come and dine.

Those traps the enemy has placed for you, you’ll find are rooted in deception. Check for an open door. If you find you have gotten out of love, been complaining, or otherwise not operating in the fruit of the Spirit, turn it around . . .

Turn and look at Me.

All is well!

“Look how the wicked conceive their evil schemes. They go into labor with their lies and give birth to trouble. They dig a pit for others to fall into, not knowing that they will be the very ones who will fall into their own pit of failure. For you, God, will see to it that every pit-digger who works to trap and harm others will be trapped and harmed by his own treachery.  But I will give all my thanks to you, Lord, for you make everything right in the end. I will sing my highest praise to the God of the Highest Place!” Psalms 7:14-17 TPT

“And the servants of the householder came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then has it weeds?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’ But he said, ‘No; lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. Let both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.'” Matthew 13:27-30

“–And his disciples came to him, saying, ‘Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.’ He answered, ‘He who sows the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world, and the good seed means the sons of the kingdom; the weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the close of the age, and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age. The Son of man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.” Matthew 13:36-43

“Many are my persecutors and my adversaries, but I do not swerve from thy testimonies.” Psalms 119:157

“Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.” Psalms 105:4 NIV

Behold, He Has RISEN!

Jesus is Alive!

Death could not stop Him!

“And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone, and sat upon it. His appearance was like lightening, and his raiment white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. Lo, I have told you.'” Matthew 28:2-7

The grave could not keep Him!

“And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Hail!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; go and tell my brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.'” Matthew 28:9-10

“Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.'” Matthew 28:16-20

Our sins, He took away!

“The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all men everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and of this he has given assurance to all men by raising him from the dead.” Acts 17:30-31

“When I saw him, I fell at this feet as though dead. But he laid his right hand upon me, saying, ‘Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one; I died, and behold I am alive for evermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.'” Revelation 1:17-18

He will come again!

“‘Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense, to repay every one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.’ Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they enter the city by the gates.” Revelation 22:12-14

Is He coming for you?

“‘I Jesus have sent my angel to you with this testimony for the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright and morning star.’ The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come.’ And let him who hears say, ‘Come.’ And let him who is thirsty come, let him who desires take the water of life without price.” Revelation 22:16-17

He will if you ask Him!

“He who testifies to these things says, ‘Surely I am coming soon.’ Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!” Revelation 22:20

Rooted in the Cross

Prepare your heart to receive the depth of the Cross.

It is not to be taken lightly, that terrible event–the affects of which man shall never know in this generation–yet, its root remains in thee.

You see, that is the core of Christianity.

One calls themself a Christ follower; yet, that cannot be without receiving the depth of the Cross–it is the core of Me. I came to die–to extend My Life to you.

It was the plan to restore.

“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 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

I had not sinned, yet I took your sin upon Me.

I cried out, “My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me?” (Mark 15:34)

We had never been separate before. But your sin turned Him away from Me–your sin closed the door.

My Father cannot remain with sin in His Presence.

When I took your sin upon Me, He had to turn away.

You are innocent, you are holy–the Breath of God in you!

“–then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.” Genesis 2:7

But, the day you choose to sin, you turn your back on Him.

The plan is in place–it all happened at the Cross. The great exchange–I suffered for your loss.

“Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. So we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We beseech you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” II Corinthians 5:17-21

Now you can remain–as if you’d never sinned.

All you need do–repent, and ask Me in.

That is the start–ask Me into your heart. But there is so much more, once you open that door!

Don’t stay at the Cross, but take time to learn of it–let its root run deep into the core of you!

For at the Cross I paid the price–the Perfect Sacrifice.

Your foundation is the Cross–you need not suffer loss. Learn what that means–let those roots run deep!

The grave, it could not hold Me–I left, that you not stay!

Simply walk away.

Walk away from sin and shame. Walk away from blame. Leave your past at the grave–

My roots remain in thee!

I was lifted up at the Cross, for all the world to see. Now, lift up your devotion to Me!

My Father says, “Welcome Home!”

From the Cross–Walk Free!

“–and he said to them, ‘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 Voice is Protection

Last week I was stopped at a light, second in line, behind a pickup truck. The bed of the truck had a load of heavy steel of some sort. I don’t know what it was but it looked thick and heavy and definitely not aluminum.

I didn’t have much time to reach my destination and would likely have been in an impatient hurry, but I was having a conversation with the Lord. This is so important because, in that moment, I was relaxed and connected when the light turned green and–

I heard the command, “don’t move!”

I didn’t take time to think about it or wonder, I just didn’t move and it felt as if a protective hand was holding me back. Amazingly, the cars behind me didn’t beep their horns; as often happens when people are not seeing you respond to the light. The pickup truck ahead of me did move however, and must have hit the gas pretty hard. He was under the light, just a few feet away, when the entire contents of his truck bed came flying out–straight out the back, every single piece!

When relating this event to a few people, some have made the comments, “That must have been scary.” and, “That sounds harrowing!” That would have been my natural reaction, had I not been ‘connected’ and heard His Voice. As it was, I heard, obeyed, and was safe. Had I moved, my car would have been totaled and there might have been a quick ride to the hospital. In His Presence is perfect peace and I remained there, totally unharmed.

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3 KJV

Maneuvering my car carefully around the mess, I gave the guy a sympathetic smile and a little wave and drove on to my appointment. He looked pretty embarrassed. Well, he should have been! He really had no business driving around with a big heavy load like that and no tail gate–not even any tie-downs–what was he thinking??? I know what I was thinking, thank you Holy Spirit! Thank you for warning me, and keeping me out of danger!


I am excited to announce that this week my publisher has begun the formatting and final editing process of the next, “His Voice in My Heart” book. Those who have followed right along, know this book has been in process; but it was going to be called “His Voice in My Heart, Volume II.” Well, ‘His Voice in my heart’ changed the title! In fact He changed the two-book set to three. When the third book is ready to reveal, I will tell you just how the Lord guided me in these changes.

I hope you can understand that this is not my work. It has been supernatural every step of the way. I am always amazed and in awe of the Lord’s incredible love for the people He created; and His great desire to heal the human heart. He comforts the brokenhearted and gathers them into His arms. He leads each one out of despair and into the abundant life, that He has prepared.

How wonderful our God is–I am so in awe of Him!

I expect the printing to take place in a month or (two) at the most. Please pray and ask if the Lord would have you join in helping this ministry to reach the brokenhearted, lost and alone. All the books are being distributed free of charge to those in prisons, jails, rehabs and to the homeless. I am especially excited in that, recently, some of the homeless have been asking for the books. They have been very excited about them. It appears the word is getting around, I am so thankful!

Praise the Lord!

“‘Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'” Matthew 25:37-40

Kick Off Your Shoes

There is one condition for you to enter My Kingdom–

that you receive My Blood.

That may seem harsh, but I died a bitter death that you may be made alive, with Me, once again.

“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

Do you understand that you are dead in your sin? I once was dead but I AM alive again, that you may enter in . . .

The path is through the Blood.

Every baby is born through a pathway of blood.

Then . . .

Washed, cleansed, and comforted.

You may be born again, through the pathway of Blood–

Mine.

Then washed–

Made clean by the Word.

“Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that he might present the church to himself in splendor without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.” Ephesians 5:25-27

And comforted–

Receive the Holy Spirit . . .

He is your Comforter and Friend.

“If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” John 14:15-17

Will you enter in?

Repent of your sins and leave them behind–

as if, taking off your shoes.

You will be standing on holy ground . . .  leave them behind–

There is no remorse or lack in My Kingdom.

But, these things are learned . . .

As you grow to discern, for the first washing is only the beginning. Without roots in good soil, you’ll find you’ll always toil, and that is not Kingdom work!

Enter in, that you may grow . . .

Enter in, that you may know . . . the Kingdom Rules–

For this Kingdom, RULES!

“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

Don’t be left standing at the door . . .

Kick off your shoes–take the first step!

The Cross is the Family Tree.

Come, be ALIVE in Me!

“He is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be pre-eminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.” Colossians 1:18-20

“For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the cleverness of the clever I will thwart.” Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.” I Corinthians 1:18-21

“But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with him, and made us sit with him in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God–not because of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:4-10

“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.'” Romans 10:8-13

Come Away My Beloved

I ask . . . and you comply.

But, do you know — that you are very dry?

You used to come running . . . with arms held open wide.

You used to linger . . . when I was by your side.

Many long, for time to spend with Me . . . You seem distant, unaware of My plea.

Hearken to Me, as I, in turn, listen to you . . . But, there is so much more, in store, for you!

We used to be close . . . We used to be quiet together . . . Can you tell Me, why the separation?

When did it start?

Why did we part?

Come running to Me — with arms held open wide.

I long to be — right there by your side.

We, truly, never do part . . . but, I want your heart!

Do you love Me?

Show Me.

Spend time with Me . . . as I long to spend time with you!

That is My plea . . .

Spend time with Me!

“Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whispers, “There is change in the air.” Arise, my love, my beautiful companion, and run with me to a higher place. For now is the time to arise and come away with me.” “You must catch the troubling foxes, those sly little foxes that hinder our relationship. For they raid our budding vineyard of love to ruin what I’ve planted within you. Will you catch them and remove them for me? We will do it together.” Song of Songs 2:13, 15, TPT

He Holds the Future

I am told she was a visitor, and I don’t remember ever seeing her before. She stood out in the isle near me, singing robustly to the Lord. When worship ended, I glanced over and she returned my gaze; the moment she did, the Lord showed me a vision of her all grown up, though she is actually about 7 or 8 years old.

In an instant, I saw her as an adult.

In this glimpse she was standing in front of an empty stage, with microphone in hand; but she was down on the floor level, standing right in front of the people. Though I didn’t see the size of the group, I sensed it to be quite large, as the stage extended quite a span. I could see the front rows of people near her as well, and they lined the length of the stage. In just a moment of time I witnessed what she looked like, height, body shape, clothing, hair, and I knew her demeanor to be feisty, no nonsense–

A passionate warrior for the Lord.

Then, just as suddenly, I was no longer seeing a young woman, but this young girl standing before me.

I had shared something after worship, but I didn’t mention what I had been shown of this girl’s future. Later, as if in confirmation, a testament of her heart, she came to me as I was washing dishes; my church shares a meal together after. She found me in the kitchen and stood at my elbow but slightly behind, waiting for me to notice her. As I turned, she looked up at me with serious eyes and said, “I liked your talk.” I smiled, thanked her, and she quickly darted off.

May she be nurtured to grow in the admonition of the Lord.

May she fulfill the Lord’s call on her life.

I don’t even know her name, but I don’t have to–the Lord knows her future!

He knows I will pray.

That’s why He shows us these things!

“And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.” Ephesians 6:4 NKJV

This same day, also during worship, my son had a powerful encounter with the Lord. His recount of it had many wiping their eyes. In a moment of time, his lifelong quest of questions, laced with doubts, was settled by the Lord Himself! Hallelujah!

Parents, trust the Lord with your children.

He knows the way to each heart. He alone knows the time to reach them–He will reach them!

“Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6 NKJV

“O Lord, thou has searched me and known me! Thou knowest when I sit down and when I rise up; thou discernest my thoughts from afar. Thou searchest out my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. Thou dost beset me behind and before, and layest thy hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it.” Psalms 139: 1-6

“For thou didst form my inward parts, thou didst knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise thee, for thou art fearful and wonderful. Wonderful are thy works! Thou knowest me right well; my frame was not hidden from thee, when I was being made in secret, intricately wrought in the depths of the earth. Thy eyes beheld my unformed substance; in thy book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. How precious to me are thy thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I could count them, they are more than the sand. When I awake, I am still with thee.” Psalms 139:13-18

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

“‘Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'” Matthew 25:37-40

Truth Prevails

Look around you–it appears that everything has changed, and the world is not as you once knew . . .

But, did My Word change?

Will it ever?

No–it is written, even as–written in stone!

When Moses broke the tablets of stone, it did not stop the Word.

When a virus has claimed many lives, My Word is still True . . .

For those whom believe, My Word is–as new!

Righteousness shall prevail, and Judgement too. Think about which of those pertains to you!

Will you be found rejoicing, or shaken?

Listen to the Truth–forsake the lies, for they’ll bow–

will you?

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that in due time he may exalt you. Cast all your anxieties on him, for he cares about you. Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experience of suffering is required of your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, establish, and strengthen you. To him be the dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” I Peter 5:6-11

“Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” Psalms 55:22
