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

 

This New Day

Begin this day to think of yourself as renewed, and not defiled in any way. Many come to Me, receiving all I have to offer,

My Blood,

My Power and Authority,

My Name and the Salvation it brings,

and yet, do not leave behind the sin, the memories and all that led them to seek Me. With the same faith it took to apprehend the gospel–that same faith will renew, restore and release you from the cause of shame.

Be an example for My Kingdom, and let go of blame.

That same power I used to raise Lazarus from the dead, I grant to you, that you may do likewise.

And so, begin with you.

For you were dead in your sins, but made alive in Christ Jesus. Therefore, live as if that is so.

Sparkle for My Kingdom like a new penny–though your worth be far greater than rubies or gold or any tangible thing; your worth claimed My Life.

Therefore, do not walk as if you own yesterday. Release it and leave it behind. Behold, today is the day of Salvation–today if you will hear My Voice.

Today!

“For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. Working together with him, then, we entreat you not to accept the grace of God in vain. For he says, “At the acceptable time I have listened to you, and helped you on the day of salvation.” Behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” II Corinthians 5:21-6:2

“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

“And you he made alive, when you were dead through the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience.” Ephesians 2:1-2

“Put off your old nature which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful  lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on the new nature, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” Ephesians 4:23-24

“–God is light and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not live according to the truth; but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” I John 1:5b-7

“So put away all malice and all guile and insincerity and envy and all slander. Like newborn babes, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up to salvation; for you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.” I Peter 2:1-3

“O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. O that today you would hearken to his voice!” Psalms 95:6-7

 

Wise Prayer

Mistakes are often made when one is too eager to get the job done.

You would be wise to be respectful and use caution when advancing into the unknown. When receiving instruction to move forward, it is expected that you will be prayerful about the advance. Enlist wisdom from above. I will provide it liberally, giving direction and encouragement as well.

Enlist Me

I await your invitation. I AM respectful of your time, for it is necessary that you exercise your will in all aspects of the call. I empower you, but I do not overpower or control you.

I AM delighted when My faithful ones are ready and listening for My direction. As long as they are willing and move forward, I continue to lead. But I do not push, nor prod or pull.

It is the willing and obedient that eat the good of the land.

Are you willing?

Will you obey?

Are you hungry?

Let us prepare–Let’s pray!

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all men generously and without reproaching, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways, will receive anything from the Lord.” James 1:5-8

“Therefore gird up your minds, be sober, set your hope fully upon the grace that is coming to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; since it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy.'” I Peter 1:13-16

“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 1:3-8

“–we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, to lead a life worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. 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 1:9-14

“If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday. And the Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your desire with good things, and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.” Isaiah 58:10-11

“If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land.” Isaiah 1:19
