Why are you here on earth?  Do you know what talents God has given you and expects you to use to accomplish your assignment here? 

Some are easy to see, such as being an artist, but some are harder to discover and much more precious than the visible ones.  Maybe you’re filled with compassion, a desire to serve or just “know” something that God wants you to pass on. 

Fill your place where you are right now.  Wherever you find yourself today, if you’re asking ‘where does God want me?’  ‘Should I live here or move?’  ‘Am I with the right person or should I leave?’  ‘Where is the love of my life?’ 

No matter your question, the answer is the same.  Start today, this moment, where you are: 

  • Be still and know God. 
  • Hear His voice and read His Word. 
  • Go hear it preached out loud. 
  • Build your faith. 
  • Do good to all whom God brings into contact with you today.
  • Do no harm to anyone. 
  • Place God above all others and set aside a time to walk with Him each day, as Adam did in the garden.
  • Honor God above all the other busy things in your life. 
  • Trust Him; know that He’ll do what He has said.
  • Pay your tithe.
  • Give to those who are needy.
  • Be obedient.
  • Know God by spending time with Him, and by learning what He said. 
  • Make God known by BEING the kind of person who lets God live from inside you.
  • Love God above all other things, with all your heart. 
  • Love others as you love yourself.
  • Don’t do anything more than this until God puts it in your heart to move.

All the busy “work” of Christians and humans on this planet are meaningless until they get the basic commandment down.  (Jesus said our “work” for God was to believe on the one He sent – Jesus.)  

News from God today to cheer you: 

I was concerned because Rod said this month might be a hard month, as he has no work in sight.  I was praying this morning and as I typed out my prayer and let God speak back to me, I realized that we are NOT to expect hard times and poverty.  That’s to take God’s promise of provision and slap Him in the face with it, rejected.  Disbelieved. 

Speak His words of promise back to Him in Jesus’ name and let the angels go into action to provide exactly what you have stated you believed.  Jesus said “Be it unto you according to your faith”, (or your belief!) 

God’s Word and the covenant with Abraham (that we now share with the Jews because of our faith in Jesus), says that our needs will be met, we will be fed and provided for, we’ll be healed, our family will be safe and that we’ll have eternal life. 

Jesus said if we truly believed with all our hearts, we would never die.  Our work truly IS to believe.  It may take a lifetime to perfect, and it may take longer than our lifetime if we’re not working on it very hard, but we can rest assured that no matter what, God has our backs.  We are not subject to the natural laws of this planet when we’re walking in the Kingdom with Jesus.  We are under supernatural laws of God’s blessings

So I reject that thought of poverty!  In the name of Jesus I accept God’s promise of abundant provision and THAT is the reality I’m walking in.  It has always worked before and God has never let us down. 

He is adamant and exact in His statements that He will supply our needs, He will heal our bodies, He will give us safety and protection, He will set a table before us even in the presence of our enemies.  He will bless us and cause us to live in joy and peace.  Peace will be our banner, and satisfaction will be our song.  Satisfied in the Lord and praising His name! 

Even while we are still in the valley of the shadow of death, He will provide for us and walk us step by step, as babes, through rocky places and lead us into blessed meadows, beside still waters, with abundant and joyful life in them, and lay out a table spread before us that satisfies all that we could dream of.  He will provide.  He will protect.  He will heal.  He will fix.  He will be there when we call, before we call out, He knows what we have need of and has already prepared a rescue.  (Praise God!) 

His angels have been commissioned to stand at the ready for the speaking of His word and they will carry out whatever we ask, in Jesus’ name.  If we ask with faith and belief that all is well and “Daddy” is on the throne.  He’s the richest king anywhere, and He loves us so much that EVERY single thing we express a desire to our Father for, if it will not harm us, but do us good and help us learn and grow closer to His image, then it is granted. 

I will concern myself with being pure and holy, and living up to His image by my choices not by any adornment or affectations.  I will remain submitted to my Father, despite the “boys” (Satan) calling from outside my window to go off into sin and death (disbelief). 

Psalm 23:4 

“… Even though I walk (now) through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for you are with me, your rod and your staff, they comfort me. “   (Psalm 23 below

Today you are walking in the shadow of death, more than ever before.  The TV screams for you to have faith in the flu and faith in heart disease and murder, and every threat known to mankind.  They tell you that your mortgage is in danger and your job is in danger, even if you’ve had no problems before.  They tell you that if you’re out of work, you’re going to stay out of work, but I have REALLY GREAT NEWS! 

God never told us to go get two jobs, to work harder, to earn more money!  NOWHERE in the Bible does it say you’re not working hard enough, go get more money!  

Instead, God tells us to pay our tithe and then stand still and see the glory of God.  He told us not only will He bless and provide for us but He challenges us – “Prove me now!” 

God’s way, the Kingdom way, is to pay your tithe and God Himself will provide the increase for you.  

Guess what?  It doesn’t have to come through more money in your paycheck, or lottery tickets or windfalls.  

God has a supernatural way (that we’ve seen happen MANY times), of making the money you have somehow cover all the need.  Sometimes it’s that the bill is lower than expected.  Sometimes a bill is paid or removed, or some other need that you thought you had was mitigated and overcome. 

God will give the rescue but the way it comes will not be what you expect OR COULD DO ON YOUR OWN.  That’s the only way He works so that we don’t get all proud and say our help was by our own hands. 

If God isn’t going to get the glory for it, He won’t get involved. 

Psalm 23:4 - …”I will fear no evil, for you are with me, your rod and staff comfort me…” 

So I asked Him, what is your rod and staff?  Is your rod not your decrees, the arm of your law- your covenant for me?  And isn’t your staff a walking stick to lean on and to guide me?  

So the rod represents all the Words and promises He has spoken, and the instructions to choose life over death.  And as long as I walk within the Kingdom (being also the kingdom measurements according to my faith), I will have the protection and blessings of the covenant (to the extent and in the areas that I believe).  (Seek to believe them all!) 

Thank you Jesus for revealing this to me!  Since when do I need to fear shadows?  They move along the wall and disappear into the night, and are burned away by the morning sun. 

The rod also measures and judges, to see if the kingdom is being chosen but it is the good arm of the Lord.  It is the part that supplies and orders things.  It is my breast to suckle from, and the staff is my mother’s arms to hold me safe and let me rest.  (Use your heart’s discernment here.) 

Surely goodness and love (mercy) will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. 

Yes Lord!  I will!  Surely, for certain, absolutely, goodness and mercy and love and provision will follow me (chase me down, be there before I get there and all ready for my needs) all the days of my life (none left out, none waiting for me with evil), and in response to such an offer, I choose to dwell in the house of the Lord, forever.  My soul answers, Yes Lord!  I will dwell with you. 

And this is the whole message of God.  God is good.  God wants to establish us and put us in robes, clean us up, feed us, bring us like babes through the bad places and establish us in mercy and love and righteousness for the purpose of dwelling with Him daily.  Being His friends.  Being His subjects, His children, His family.  God has invited us to His holiday table, reserved only for His family.  (His intimate family.  We are now His children.) 

The door is open and Jesus’ arms are stretched open wide, and He calls to all who would hear His voice today.  “Come”  “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be made white as snow, and though your burdens have been so heavy, lean on me, and take on my yoke and my burden instead.  It is light, it is full of life and Light and healing.” 

“For I have taken your sins upon my body, and I have established peace for you and your family.  I have taken your infirmities and sicknesses, your depression, your tendency to sin, your failures and your shortcomings, and I have nailed them all to my cross and defeated each one.  There is nothing left that prevents you from coming to me, except your choice.   

Learn of me, and choose life.  I have given you everything that you would need to make the decision, to understand me.  I have made my Words simple enough for children, and I do not ask that you go to colleges or study hard texts and receive documents on sheepskins to be worthy to enter my presence and my love.   

Instead I have asked that you come as little children, no more than what you are, with no more than what you have.  In whatever state you are in, whatever mess your life is in and no matter who else is against you.  No matter which monsters are at your door, I will rescue you.  Simply say - Jesus!  Call out my name, and say, “Yes I will follow you!”  Call on me, and I will save you. 

Whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” 

So for me, there is nothing else to DO and nowhere to GO, and nobody else I have to PLEASE, or BE.  It is ALL taken care of.  Jesus did it all.  All the worry, the work, the fear, the sweating, the crying, the pain, the misery, it is ALL TAKEN AWAY and nailed to the cross.  Why are we so determined to take it up again and carry our burdens as martyrs?  They are gone, they no longer exist.  They are dust blown away, and shadows blasted by light.  They are not my problem, nor my load to bear.  I am free.  Totally free. 

What will I fear today?  

Lack of food?  Nope!  God is feeding me from a huge table of goodies, holiday goodies not just ordinary ones!  It’s a feast and I can eat and eat all I want. 

Poor health?  Nope!  God has promised me health and no matter what state I am in, I can walk in His presence and His presence cleanses me of all unrighteousness and all of that death stuff and sickness that thought it had its hands on me.  I thought it had its hands on me, but I was wrong.  It was just a shadow.  No matter where I am today, I am in His presence, and therefore, death or life in the physical world means nothing.  I will not notice the change when I go, I will just be translated to a closer presence with Him. 

Lack of money?  Nope!  God said pay your tithes to me and I will blast away your debts and your poverty with an increase that your barns can’t hold!  Trust me, He said.  Prove me!  God I believe you!  I hear you and I believe! 

Running out of Propane to stay warm?  Nope!  God said all my needs and all my supply.  He is providing for them all.  Just ask! 

My God also controls the skies and the weather; He changes temperature and moves the sun back and forth at will, to do His purpose.  His purpose according to His own words is to take care of me!! 

The opinions of other people?  No, God is not a respecter of persons and neither am I.  I realize that I am whole and complete in Jesus, and that He created me in my mother’s womb just exactly as I am.  There is nothing I would change.  If change is needed I am confident the Holy Spirit will change me, and I only need listen to Him in my heart.  If He does not condemn me (and He doesn’t condemn any of us, Jesus came to forgive us), then I will not allow another MAN or Satan to do it for Him! 

What a mighty God we have to not only make us, provide for us, look down the road and see what we might need and provide for every single bit of it in advance.  Time is a mystery to man, for the Bible says that these things were all provided for before He made the earth.  That was before Jesus was even crucified according to our timetables. 

God is a supernatural God and He’s given us the dominion over this planet.  He’s equipped us with special gifts from the Holy Spirit, both natural and supernatural ones to do the job He put us here to do.  

What is our work?  Jesus said it is to believe on the One the Father sent.  Himself.  Jesus.  

What is our mission?  To know God, and to make Him be known. 

What is the greatest commandment?  Jesus said to Love God with all our hearts and souls and minds, and to love others as we love ourselves. 

Sadly, many of us today do not love ourselves and we’re sinning in that too.  We are blinded to the most important information for this planet, and for this lack of knowledge, God says His people perish. 

We continually have to start over as babes in Christ because we keep vomiting up our sins and past, and keep putting ourselves down, letting Satan lord himself over us. 

We are stuck in a cycle of self-loathing-/discovering God’s mercy-/forgiveness-/beginning-/and self-loathing again.  STOP!  Be still!  Know the truth about God and about ourselves. 

Christ’s sacrifice WAS SUFFICIENT FOR ALL.   For every sin, for past, present and future.  For every ailment, for every disease, for every depression, for every anger, for every hurt that somebody did to you, for every fear and attack from the enemy.  There is NOTHING that isn’t provided for and covered by God’s provision through the cross. 

And the enemy that we all quake and fear in the presence of and from the whisperings and urgings of IS UNDER OUR FEET.  God said it is so!  He’s not a liar! 

So why are we suffering?  Because we are not taking the authority over every situation and circumstance by speaking in agreement with the already written and decreed Word of God that we have all we need.  That every provision is made. 

Just pick a verse you like that is relevant to your problem and speak it out loud, applying it to yourself with belief that it IS applied to you.  

If you don’t know a verse, say this:  “Get thee behind me Satan for Psalm 23 is written and it applies to me!!”  Everything is covered in that one psalm. 

Psalm 91 is GREAT too!  

So again, what is our work and our mission?  To learn to apply God’s Word to every situation that we face, moment by moment.  Not to step ahead of God but walk beside Him, letting Him lead us by the Holy Spirit’s urgings. 

To get to know God intimately and personally so that we can share what we know!  Using the gifts, talents and passions for things God has given us, find ways to go about doing what we love, while sharing our testimony with those God brings to us daily.  

Don’t worry about going forth to preach, or building cathedrals and monuments, or converting every soul.  Instead perfect your own soul by constant contact with the Holy Spirit and that Spirit of God will supernaturally draw all people to you, one at a time, so that the Spirit can minister to them, and reveal to them their own gifts.   This is a reproduction event, one cell at a time, creating the body.  If you happen to love preaching and get to do it, then you may speak to a crowd of a thousand, but the Spirit ministers to each one individually. 

Work is not a job (j.o.b.) if we’re doing what we love because we love it.  Forget chasing the money.  Let God bring the money.  He promised us food and clothing, and we don’t have to have shelter, but He’ll provide that too, or show you how to obtain it. 

What is the greatest commandment?  To walk in love, absolutely certain of God’s Word being true, and aware of the precious nature of every person, no matter how beautiful, ugly, rich or poor, sick or well.  

No mayor or president is more valuable than any homeless alcoholic in the street.  No man can puff himself up and become more important than any other.  No title, no diploma and no bank account can do that for you.  No sacrifice can do that for you.  Being Mother Theresa won’t make you more important than the “lazy” bum who is sitting at home not working.  HE has caught hold of the principles of the kingdom without even knowing it! 

If you were to totally understand this yourself, that YOU are also LOVELY and valuable no matter who you are, what you look like, what money you have or don’t have, and no matter what you have previously done, once you take on Jesus you are a part of God and He is a part of you.  If you understood, you would walk invincible. 

You are connected to every other person through Christ’s Spirit and there is nothing to fear.  No one can harm you if you live for Christ and not yourself.  No one can take anything away from you. 

No time limit or appointment is important so being late doesn’t exist.  Therefore no road rage or anxiety is necessary.  Being stuck in traffic or waiting in an overcrowded waiting room, are no longer things to fear.  

No germs can hurt you; they die immediately upon contact with your body because the Holy Spirit of God (meaning LIFE) lives inside you.  Sickness is a function of the curse of the wages of sin – being death.  That no longer applies to you because you cannot die once you are saved.  You may be translated from the physical world to the spiritual world, but that is not death.  And you may not EVEN undergo that transformation.  

Who is to say that Jesus didn’t mean that statement literally – If you believe on me, you shall never die.  What if it’s literal?  I can tell you 2 people who have already had that happen, so there IS a precedent set.  Enoch and Elijah, neither man died. 

What if Jesus really intended you to lay down your burdens and sell off the collections of junk you’ve amassed, and walk through golden meadows with Him, listening to His voice, learning at His feet and being fed manna by angels or doves? 

You say the meadows are covered by snow where you live?  Why is this a problem?  Be a nomad and go where it is warm.  Or put on a coat and go on a winter adventure.  Why wait to go anywhere, when Christ is there with you as you read this, knocking on your heart’s door. 

Talk with Him, let Him in, let today be the first day of a whole new life for you, once and for all putting aside all the worries and cares, and get busy with the LIVING that He intended for you. 

What if you have physical or material problems that you need help with right now? 

How do I apply the Word to my problem?  When you speak out God’s word about your classification of problem (for instance “healing” is a broad term that could cover many problems you may have, even financial), you apply it to you. 

When you follow in obedience a specific verse to do something to cure your problem (such as calling the elders of the church and let them anoint you with oil and pray over you, and the prayer of faith will save him who is sick), you apply the cure. (James 5:15 below.) 

The next verse says when you pray also for one another, you are healed and restored, so pray for others on a regular basis, heartfelt, fervent prayers expecting God to show up and grant them.  (James 5:16 below.) 

When you walk with God in child-like trust and expectation that what He said is true, and seek to be in His presence, loving Him and following Him, the essence of God, the LIFE of God will naturally rub off on you and your circumstances will change. 

When you consistently pray with thanksgiving that what you have asked for has been done, recognizing that all things are done first in the Spirit world and then in the Material world, and acknowledge that any moment it will show up completely in the physical world, you apply the Word to your situation through gratitude. 

Know that EVERY SINGLE problem you face has a solution and an answer and the answer is found in God’s hands.  He will bring you through it, transform you and any other person involved, or arrange the people and things in your life to make the good abound and give you freedom. 

If you are in a physical prison with real bars and a sentence, you may be set free, or you may be right where God wants you to be to fulfill your mission.  Your freedom begins when you decide that you will submit to God whatever is His plan for you.  Once that’s done and settled in your heart, God can be free to move on your behalf.  One of the strangest secrets of all spiritual principles is that the thing you are asking for must be released for it to come to you.  Whatever you chase runs away, but when you stop chasing it, it turns to embrace you. 

Life is relatively short in human beings, compared to our spirit selves that will live forever, or even for turtles that may live well over a hundred years.  The time you waste in angst over your situation is time lost that you’ll regret later.  Make the very most of whatever your situation right where you are today.  Not just the days, but the seconds as well.  The thoughts, and the space between the thoughts.  Claim them, own them, admit to them, and release them into space. 

God bless you!

Psalm 23  1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.   2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, 
he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.  4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, [a] I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.  5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.  You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.  6 Surely goodness and love will follow me  all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Footnotes:  [a]  Psalm 23:4 Or through the darkest valley 

James 5:15     And the prayer [that is] of faith will save him who is sick, and the Lord will restore him; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 

James 5:16     Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].
