You are loved!
John 16: 13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
We need You Holy Spirit!
This Morning, I felt Holy Spirit tell me to simply encourage you, child of God, from the Word of God, in how God your Father in heaven sees you today. Your who, affects your do! We don’t work to earn acceptance and approval, but we are loved. As a result of that radical love and acceptance, we join with Him, in doing our part in telling others how much He loves them.
It is my prayer today, that you read not only these verses, but that Holy Spirit will breath upon them, bringing the voice, presence, and breath of our Father to your heart today, that you would experience a savage encounter with His passion, love, and fire towards you.
You are His! He is proud of you! He is with you, and His plan for your life has not been thwarted, but is being worked out!
Ps 18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
God is my strength, my rock, my buckler, and my high tower!
Mt 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Father, no matter what the world is saying, I believe that indeed I am Your child, that You love me, in me, You are well pleased!
Mt 12:18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
Father, thank you for choosing me! That I am deeply loved! That Holy Spirit is upon me, to be able to teach people right from wrong!
Mt 17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
I believe that You are speaking for me today Father, that as You speak through me, You are speaking to others, to listen to what You have told me to say….
Because of Jesus, God has adopted you into His family. You are His child. Because of the blood of Jesus, you have complete and total access to the throne of God. May you hear in your heart, the same words Father God spoke of Jesus over 2000 years ago.
“This is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased”. This is my beloved daughter, in whom I am well pleased.”
As you put God’s word in your mouth, and proclaim His promises, Mt. 12:18 and 17:5 is true of you, ‘Behold my servant, whom I have chosen, my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased, he (or she) shows forth my judgements to the Gentiles, hear him”
Isa 45:11 Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.
God is waiting to hear His word echoed out of the earth from and to heaven, that he may display His acts of power to this generation. When His word is spoken in authority here in the earth, He backs it up in power.
Even angels listen for the Word of God given voice in the earth, for they are ministering spirits sent forth from God to minister for us, the promises of God.
Ps 103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
Heb 1: 13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Let’s see this again in another familiar passage of Scripture,
Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
See it here, the divine connection. God pours out His Spirit upon us, and we prophesy (that is, speak His Word), He backs up His word with His power (which includes angels), as He shows forth wonders in heaven above, and signs here in the earth beneath, all for one main purpose, that many shall call on the name of the Lord, and be saved.
In light of eternity, you are one of the redeemed, saved from death, hell and the grave. Yet you are also a child of destiny, called into God’s great redemptive plan to work with Him in the redemption of others. This will involve using His authority, granted to you through Christ, over the world, the flesh and the devil. Therefore it is essential child of God that you see yourself as you truly are in Him, that you can understand and exercise your rights and privileges as His royal heir.
Let’s continue to look at your identity, in Him, by studying what the Word of God says of the following: In Him, In whom, and In Christ.
2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Notice, here, that those people who are not born-again, are not in Him. They are literally found spiritually, in darkness. Satan is referred to as the god of this world, and he works through deception and lies. There is no power encounter required between God and the devil, rather it is a truth encounter that makes freedom available. This verse shows again how Satan, the father of lies works. Through thoughts, in the minds of people, he convinces them of the irrationality the simplicity of Jesus brings to any individual that simply believes.
“What comes to mind when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”

1Co 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
Let’s agree with the Word of God, revealed to us here.
Declare, ‘Thank-you Father, that the glorious light of the gospel of Christ, has shone upon me. I believe that I am not conformed to this world and it’s way of thinking, but am being transformed by the renewing of my mind. By faith, I declare, that I have the mind of Christ.:

1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Let’s declare, “I thank you Father, for building me up in you, a temple of the Holy Spirit here in the earth. Thank-you for make me a living stone, your spiritual house, a priest made acceptable to you by Jesus Christ. I praise you, and worship you for what you have done, offering up a spiritual sacrifice to you. Hallelujah!”
Eph 3:12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
Pr 28:1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.
Declare, “Though I am meek, I am not weak, and I am faithful to you. Thank-you for boldness and confidence to live for You today.”
Col 2:3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Pr 2:3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
Isa 45:3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
Let’s pray, for in these verses are great provisions and change for your life.
“Father, I see that in Jesus, are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I seek knowledge and understanding, that I might understand your fear O Lord, and find the knowledge of God. Please grant me treasures out of darkness, and your hidden riches from secret places, that it might be known that you Lord, which call me by name, are the God of Israel.”
Joh 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

Let’s pray, “Father, I have not seen you, yet I believe, and am blessed beyond what I can ask or think. I love you, for you are so good to me, granting me joy unspeakable and full of glory.”
