Godly inspiration for daily living

New oil

 The Lord gave me this word for the body of Christ.

I have anointed you to be My disciples, to spread the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.I have anointed each one with a calling to go out and bring good tidings, don’t delay what I have placed inside of you, don’t delay the work I have called you for. My Spirit is always present, My Spirit is always guiding, My Spirit is always there to direct, Seek My Face, allow Me to speak into your life, allow Me to give you wisdom in situations.

 

My purpose for your life is for you to be a vessel that My Spirit can flow through, and it can only flow through you when you allow the Holy Spirit to renew you daily. The vessel that the Lord wants to move in must be a vessel that is Holy and Pure for the world to see Christ.

 

Waiting on my instructions in the secret place is vital, don’t speak in your own authority, wait on My Spirit. Allow Me to show you in what areas I want you to move, allow me to give you overflowing Love and Compassion not only for My people, but for a broken world.

Only when you seek my face can I reveal and deposit the true nature of my LOVE for the world. I am a God of Love, I am a God of peace, nothing that you face is impossible for God to heal and to use for His Glory. This is all stepping stones into your new level, where I need you to be for my next move. Take courage, be empowered with My word, stand firm on My truth.

 

I am the true vine, everybody that is in Me will grow and have new life, but a branch standing on it’s own cannot last, because that branch (person) can easily be broken by the storms of life. A branch on its own will surely die because it does not receive enough nourishment. It will always have an unstable aspect to it. Branches that grow when connected to the true vine become strong and can withstand all kinds of storms. Stay connected to the true vine Jesus Christ.

 

The Lord showed me a sponge that was soaked with oil (soaking oil of purity), and it was dripping all over the body of Christ. The revelation of this vision was that God is anointing those who have been faithful, who have been quietly and faithfully doing what God has called them to do. He has called them out to stand for His truth, not allowing the influence of the world to distract them. And those in the body of Christ receiving the anointing but not acting and moving on God’s Spirit will have a sense of being lost. Don’t allow the new oil of the anointing of God’s Spirit to pass you by without acting on it. Oil has the tendency to flow into the smallest places, even into the hidden parts of our hearts and make it new.

 

We must allow God’s Holy presence to anoint us daily with new oil. The new oil is God’s Holy Spirit.

 

Prayer: Thank you Lord for the new oil of Your Spirit.

God’s assignment

When God calls us to the courtroom of heaven, the secret place of the most high, to receive our daily assignments, the question that comes to mind is are we really ready for what God wants to share. Because we always have our own agendas and forget to allow God’s Spirit to speak and release His heart to us.

 

We need to be prepared to push through the times of being despondent, times of feeling it will never materialise. The first thing that we need to check when we start feeling despondent, is feelings of tiredness and lack in our prayer lives. This is a war that is waging in the spirit against us, that war is ongoing and it is out to wear us down. In the spirit I can feel the resistance, I can feel that people have allowed the devil to steal their time with the Lord and chaos has been released into certain situations.

 

The secret place of the Lord is our place of safety, it is our place where God instructs, where God guides,  where God restores and where we can go and repent and turn back to God.  We have lost our passion and the compassion for others; we are so busy thinking that we are doing the work of the Lord yet we have neglected people and their suffering. As long as the devil can keep us busy, we are distracted from the real fight.

 

We need to get real with where we are in the spirit, we need to understand that God is not happy with the leftovers on our tables. God should be our first priority, the first response when we are in danger, the first response when we are in pain. But most of us are not there yet, our mindsets are still in the past, we are still dwelling on things that God want to use as part of our testimony. And we are still struggling with self-image, rejection and unforgiveness. When are you going to be ready for God’s assignment?

We need to truly understand Romans 8:28 which says: “We know that all things work together for the good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Some people still question whether they are called, yes we are called! In verse 30 it says, “and those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and whom he justified he also glorified.”

 

The words in verse 28 and 30 “those who are called” refer specially to born again people that love the Lord and justified means to be made righteous in the sight of God.  No matter what situation you are facing it will work out for your good. You might not see it like that when you are in your situation, but over time you will get to see how God’s hand was in that situation.

When we are born again we no longer have our own image because scripture tells us in Colossians 3:10 “and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him”.  God created man and we are in His likeness and in His image.

 

Prayer – God I am ready for your assignment, because it is not about me but it is all about you. Use me in Jesus Name. Amen

 

Stay connected to His Spirit, examine your heart

To be separated from the Lord means we are separated from His presence and His Spirit. The indwelling Spirit of God will become still and you will lose the ability to hear His voice. Separation from the Spirit of the Lord is spiritual death. You will feel like you have lost your way and cannot find your way back on this road of salvation. When we remove the light bulb from its source of power it is dead and cannot bring light in any area. But when we become aware of His presence the Holy Spirit will ignite a fresh anointing, a fresh hunger and the ability to recognise the truth. We should let the fire of the Holy Spirit direct His purpose for our life and remove the things that is holding us back from walking in the fullness of His presence. The fire of the Holy Spirit is unique to every person, depending on how we allow the Spirit to have access to our lives. Full surrender will allow full power, full anointing and full authority in the spiritual realm.

How much are you willing to surrender to Him?

To have a clean heart before God means to always check whether your flesh has not overstepped the Lord’s boundaries, because overstepping the boundaries can cause us to walk in our own authority and lead to spiritual death. We should be quick to repent so our hearts can stay pure. If we allow our heart to be clean, our spirit will put us in line with God’s Spirit and it will awaken every aspect of your life. We will never be the same again, and because we are in line with the Lord, we will be able to discern everything around us. When our heart is unclean we are dead to the Spirit of God and the devil will have his way with us. The Spirit of God looks at the heart of every person that converts to Jesus Christ.

The Lord always looks at the condition of our hearts because out of our hearts all things have its origin. 1 Chronicles 28: 9 says: “As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind; for the Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.”

 

So be encouraged today, if the Holy Spirit reveals things to you, be quick to repent and clean out your heart. Our prayer life always needs to be intact so that we stay connected to the Holy Spirit who is your Intercessor, Guide, Teacher, Helper and so much more. God bless.

 

 

Compromise corrupts

Never ever get too comfortable with the enemy.

When we become comfortable in our spiritual walk with the Lord, we start compromising on God’s word. We allow things to come in and pass us by without recognizing the danger behind it. No compromise is worth the consequence of God’s wrath that will come upon us when we try to corrupt God’s word.

His word is pure, it is truth and will never change, not even when people try to corrupt it with their false doctrine and religious spirits. Stay alert and awake in the spirit, but even when we are not awake in the spirit God will use dreams and visions to alert you. God’s Spirit never ever sleeps.

We need to get to a place where we understand our dreams and our visions because it’s also part of God’s communication with us.  We will only be able to see in the spirit and understand when we are filled with the Spirit of God and has His truth, only then will we see the attacks of the enemy beforehand.  The devil only understands the authority we have in Jesus Christ. No other plan that we may have will be able to stand against his attack. The devil is like an animal who stalks its prey and at the right time he attacks, but we have a Shepherd that protects His flock. Only God is the true vine, he is our source of life (John 15) stay connected to Him.

We are easily manipulated because we don’t know the word of God. But when we receive the knowledge and revelation of God’s word there is no power on earth that will be able to stop you from conquering every battle that you face. God’s army enforces God’s word for your victory. We should never give up our territory, because that ground that we have gained is Holy ground unto the Lord.

When we keep our hearts open and pure before God, He will connect to our spirit and reveal the darkest secret of those who rises up against us. When God reveals these spirits we must expose them, bring it to God’s light not to destroy, but to give them a chance to repent before God almighty “No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord.  Isaiah 54: 17 (AMP)

Be encouraged that the devil will never give up on trying to get you down and trying to break you, but you must see his attack as a learning experience to gain knowledge so that the battlefield will be prepared for the next round.

Prayer: Thank you Lord that You have given Your angels charge over us, that we have made You our refuge and our fortress. Only with our eyes shall we look and see the reward of the wicked in Jesus name. Amen.

 

 

Set yourself free, forgive

Unforgiveness is a seed planted by Satan to keep us in bondage, and once we start watering that seed it develops a root and the more you water the seed the more roots it develops and the stronger the foundation of the root becomes. Once the foundation of unforgiveness is laid it develops into bitterness, strife, anger and rage and people see you as a negative person, always complaining and wanting to argue about everything. If unforgiveness is not confronted and remove at its core, it will become a stronghold that grows deeper and deeper and will end in self-pity and at times even suicide.

The door that we have opened for the devil to come in and manipulate and stir our emotions must be closed by us to be completely set free. Deliverance comes at a price where you will have to choose between life or death. Choosing death will keep you in bondage and in prison for the rest of your life, but choosing life gives you freedom to move forward.  Freedom comes from inside yourself by choosing to forgive yourself and others and renewing your mind on a daily basis to restore your focus. Unforgiveness imprisons you and you lose out on the love of a Father that really cares and really wants to see you free from all condemnation that the devil has brought against you.

Letting go and allowing change is not easy, but with the help of our Lord we can do all thing through Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4: 13). Being scared and not wanting to change can also keep you in bondage.  By forgiving you take back the authority that God has given you and you start seeing things with a clear understanding of what God has done for you. You will know that every stronghold must go because the blood of Jesus is against it, it will have to bow in the presence of our King, and it will have to release and give back seven-fold.

The blood of Jesus is our authority and power in the spiritual realm and it gives us freedom to command what the devil have stolen from us. Leaving doors open after you have been delivered will bring a spiritual death between you and the Father.

Close the door that needs to be closed and keep it closed, choosing to open the doors God is showing you will allow you access (permission) to our Father that is always on our side, it will allow you the power of a Father that heals and restore and the authority of a King that will never lose a battle.

Today I want to challenge you – choose to set yourself free from unforgiveness, ask the Lord to show you if the seed of unforgiveness is present in your life.

Prayer:  Heavenly Father in the Name of Jesus I ask forgiveness where I have opened doors and where I have given the devil a legal right to torment my body and mind. I choose to close that door now in the Name of Jesus. I repent and ask that You take full control of my life and restore me unto You and wash me with the Blood of Jesus. The glory and honour is yours in Jesus Name.

Live a resurrected life

 

To me the word resurrection means new life, new birth and new commitment.

Jesus hanged on the cross because of love; He was resurrected on the third day. The question that came to me was why three days? The Lord answered: The Father the Son and the Holy Spirit needed to reconnect in the Spirit to make sure that the devil has lost his complete hold on humanity; so that Jesus could walk in the fullness of His resurrection. Because of His resurrection we can now also walk in the fullness of having a new life in Him.

Let us get a new and fresh understanding of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He didn’t have to do it, but He loved the Father and He did it because of obedience to Himself and the Father. He offered His life as a sacrifice of praise and honour to God.

A resurrected life cannot just merely live. Because of the price that was paid, it was far more than just dying. The resurrection was the reward for the price that was paid for us, and to walk in the fullness of His life. A resurrected life needs to be on fire for God, a resurrected life needs to stand in the gap, and a resurrected life needs to walk in the authority and power of the Blood of Jesus Christ. The dark hour that Jesus had to face was worth the sacrifice for us to be free from bondage and to walk in complete victory.

When we are reminded of His resurrection, it should be a constant renewal of our mind. When we allow a gap in our lives it gives the devil the opportunity to come in and steal and bring destruction and chaos.

What have we allowed the devil to steal and keep on stealing because we just don’t get the revelation? The revelation is that there is power in the Blood of Jesus; the Blood is a very expensive gift and has the potential to change people’s lives. The devil don’t want that Word to come out, he does not want us to receive the revelation.

When we look at situations and we want to give up and say enough is enough, no more, we should find renewed strength and power in the Blood of Jesus. The blood in our veins is red and can never change colour, just like the blood of Jesus that will never lose its power. Use it to bring glory to His name.

Through His resurrection things are made new, we are a new creation in Christ Jesus and the devil has no power over us.

Prayer: Father we thank You for releasing Your Son Jesus Christ, we thank you for the cross and for the resurrection; and the power of the Blood of Jesus that will never change. Amen

 

 

 

Allow the presence of God to consume you

The Bible states in Exodus 34: 29 that “when Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the covenant law in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the Lord.” When he had finished speaking to the Israelistes, “he put a veil over his face. But whenever he entered the Lord’s presence to speak with him, he removed the veil until he came out. And when he came out and told the Israelites what he had been commanded, they saw that his face was radiant. Then Moses would put the veil back over his face until he went in to speak with the Lord” (Exodus 34: 33-35).

When you are in the presence of the Lord you don’t have to hide behind a veil or things of the world because everything is open and exposed in the presence of the Lord.

The more time you spend in the presence of the Lord,   the more radiant you will become and the RADIANCE of the Lord will take over your whole being and it will consume everything that is not of Him. When you enter into the Holy of Holies only the purity of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit can be seen.

Moses needed the veil to guard against the lust of the eyes because he would have been distracted by the things in the natural. For his body (temple of God) not to be defiled by the lust of the eyes God gave him a veil. God needed His temple (body) to be holy and pure in His presence.

When your eyes are covered you enhance your listening skills, so when Moses was walking among God’s people, he only heard the voice of the Father and was not distracted by people because he was connected to the Father and could lead God’s people according to the commandments. So when Moses entered the presence of the Lord he only saw God’s Grace.

In his presence the Lord will command you to be obedient to the voice of the Father and obedience is essential for Him to accomplish His goal in your life. He will give you the Authority over all the forces of the earth just like Moses commanded the sea to split open and it obeyed his voice. He will command victory in every situation that you might not see immediately, but in faith you need to take hold of the victory that has already been commanded in the spiritual realm.

The light can only come out of us if the darkness is crushed out of us. The presence of the Lord is where you find His strength, His wisdom and His guidance and you will also find the peace that passes all understanding. Seeking God’s presence will give you a natural radiance of light and will draw people to the radiance, which is Jesus Christ.

Moses did not obey his emotions nor did he obey the other voices speaking out to him, but he obeyed the voice of God because he knew it.

The radiance of Jesus Christ can only come through when we are committed and wilfully obey Him.

 

Prayer: Father in the name of Jesus, we wilfully commit to You, as we stand in awe of Your presence. Help us to hear Your voice clearly in Jesus Name. Amen

 

 

Warning against Offence

When we look at 2 Samuel 13 were Amnon violated his sister Tamar and David’s failure to punish him – The consequence of David’s actions lead to Absalom taking an offence against David. And we all know the consequence and the end of this story. Offence is a deadly weapon that the devil uses to keep us in bondage and destroy our relationships so that he (devil) can build up bitterness within us. Unless we identify this spirit of offence, this spirit will continue to cause chaos and destroy relationships.

 

How do we identify the spirit of offence?

Offence is difficult to identify within, because pride will keep us from exposing the offence in our life. Offence is tied up to control and pride. Pride tells us we are always right and cannot have offence in our lives and it doesn’t allow us to see the entire picture.

Some of us cannot handle the thought of being wrong and we feel ashamed and unworthy. When we receive direction or correction a prideful offensive person will always interpret it as “I can’t do anything right or I messed up again”. We sometimes feel that we are unfairly treated for example, we will complain to others in church, that the church don’t value our gifting. But the church has processes in place; that needs to be followed; and an offensive person will in some case destroy people’s lives by their actions.

When we are offended we want to control the situation, but when controlling and having it our way does not exist, sometimes people leave the church or just go to church if and when they feel like it. We think correction is not for us.

When we keep the offence we become unteachable, because we are in pursuit to be elevated, entitled and respected. People with the spirit of offence needs a lot of love, and when we speak to them we must give them spirit-led advice. Set healthy boundaries, and approach them with tenderness, but be firm. We must extend the grace and mercy that Jesus Christ gave to each one of us. We must lead and guide people into a place of peace and love, forgiveness and hope but speak the truth in Love.

Only through self-examination and searching within ourselves will we see when and if offence arises.

Prayer: Father, in the name of Jesus, I have seen in Your Word, that I have to let offenses go. Your Word says that we must forgive those who have hurt us, because You forgave us. We repent of this spirit of offence and I ask for Your forgiveness in Jesus Name. Amen Scripture reading 2 Samuel 13:1- 33

Repent and Live

God is awesome, He will never leave His children in darkness; He will always show us a way to the light. Fasting and praying help us to see where we have gone off course, and bring us back into His perfect will. Our relationships are restored and we receive a new ability to hear the voice of God clearly.

 

But what happens when you have done all of those things and still feel like a dark cloud is hanging over your head? It takes much more commitment to push through and to spend time in His presence. It’s not easy when you feel tired and don’t feel like anything is happening, but only praise and reading the word will help us to receive a new revelation to bring us back.

 

The past month I have received a new revelation on repentance. We may think we’re okay, because we are in church receiving the word and praising God, but we have moved far away from Him. We are doing everything that Christian people are supposed to do, but our relationship is not at the right place nor are we committed to go beyond our feelings and our thoughts.

 

The busyness of life has taken its toll on our lives. We have become tired, we have become lazy; we have become complacent. When we become tired and complacent in the spirit it spills over into everything else in our lives.

 

The condition of our heart

When we repent it allows the Holy Spirit to bring a release, but for me it still did not happen and I still did not receive the release that I needed. After openly repenting with a group of ladies in our church the cloud shifted and I was restored, renewed, refined.

The only repentance that the Lord will accept is from a pure and clear heart. Sometimes we repent, but it is just with our lips and we think God must be happy and okay with that. He is not, God checks the condition of our heart before He gives the release. Only when He is completely happy with the condition of our heart will we be able to move forward.

Prayer:

Come, Lord Jesus, into our midst. Come, Lord Jesus, and just do whatever you want to do. Break through my theology, break through my carnality, break through my human desires, break through my human will, break through all this stuff that holds me earthbound. God, Have your way in me! Come and manifest yourself in my life!
