From God’s Heart: To Know Me and Walk in Confidence

 

Your faith belongs in nothing or no one else but Me.

 

I LOVE faith so much that I allow it to be tested

so that it goes to a deeper level in My kid’s souls,

that it becomes a part of their very bones and marrow,

that they begin to automatically LIVE by it.

 

 

You will walk in confidence

in Who you KNOW, know, know Me to be.

 

And sometimes this confidence comes by walking through the ‘fire’ (1 Peter 1:6,7).

 

The fire is where all other false notions and assumptions (those that placate souls and make My people weak and listless) are burned away- so that only what is true and trustworthy remains.

 

I AM= bottom line

I LOVE= bottom line

I care= period.

This is what you need to know, and it will make you move forward in bold confidence.

“to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge..” Eph. 3:19

 

 

Take ground in the land of the living (Ps. 27:13).

 

You will go forth in rejoicing and have peace.

You will be strong and courageous,

and your ‘default’ will be to call on My name (you will not fall for any previous ‘defaults’).

 

Be strong and take courageous action (Joshua 1:9).

Draw near to Me, and I will draw near to you (James 4:8).

 

Do not neglect any of My benefits..take them..they are yours.. battle FOR them… and live life abundant..full of faith, with weapons of righteousness for the right hand and the left (2 Cor. 6:7).

 

Remember that everything seems ‘fruitless’ until there is fruit. (click here for more on this thought)

 

Be ACTIVELY patient.. give Me no rest, which reminds you where (in Whom) your hope for change is from.

 

“Wait for the Lord;

Be strong and let your heart take courage;

Yes, wait for the LORD.” Psalm 27:14

Don’t Stop Praying

  Elijah could have heard the report of “a cloud as small as a man’s hand” and been discouraged (1 Kings 18:42-45).   That’s not to mention how he could have previously already stopped praying, as time and time the report was, “There is nothing.”   Nothing!   Elijah could have been discouraged and could

Take Heart at the Smallest of Signs

  You have seen growth and progress, but your heart cries, “Where is the fruit?”   Fix your eyes on the horizon.  Look up and watch for it.   In answer to prayer, praise Me at the first sight (the first report) of the smallest of ‘results’.   “..Elijah went up to the top of

Can We Be Too Diligent?

  I am serious, and you cannot be too serious about Me.   You cannot be too devoted, spend too much time in My Presence, in prayer, or in My Word (studying to handle it correctly- 2 Timothy 2:15- and to walk in a manner worthy- Eph.4:1, Col. 1:10) in the midst of a crooked

Do We Need to Reconsider How We Approach a Holy God?

“Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh,……let us draw near with a sincere (true) heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil

Why Are People Falling for Ungodly Wisdom?

  Ungodly and wisdom: two words that cannot go together. Yet we see people all around us professing to be wise (Romans 1:20,21, 22) as they live contrary to the Only True Word of Wisdom (John 1:1-18). “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for

Why We Must Have Sharp Discernment (and Use It!)

Speaking of the devil, Jesus said, “He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44 Satan truly is a lying thief

Pray Against the Spirit of Offense

    It is a lofty opinion raised up against the knowledge of God and the loving mission He has placed upon us to think that we must keep silent, saying nothing that would be offensive (to a world that is extremely offended), and keep to ourselves our beliefs and what Scripture clearly proclaims as truth
