May you reach out to others to join you in worshiping the Lord and giving praise to the King in His sanctuary, serving the Lord your God and returning to the Most High so that those you love who are in captivity may be set free through the grace and compassion of God for He will not turn His face from you if you turn to Him. 2 Chronicles 30

May you be strong in the Lord and bear with the failings of the weak, not seeking to please yourself but your neighbor, for his good, to build him up, even as Christ did not please Himself, that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures, you might have hope. Romans 15

Seek My will, My child. Seek it in the Word, and seek it in the Spirit. 

Read and study, My precious one. Be in My Word and know My Word, for it will be both your defensive shield and your offensive weapon against the attacks of the enemy. He will come against you, and against those you love, and you must be prepared to defeat him by the only means possible—the truth and the authority of My Word. In My Word you learn of your sin nature which has come down from your father Adam, and in My Word you learn of the sacrifice of blood I made as the new man Adam. Walk in the victory which this knowledge can bring you.

Pray and wait, My love. Seek My Spirit and walk in My Spirit, for the Comforter brings you life and hope, engrafting the Word you study into your heart, giving you the wisdom to balance the knowledge and the understanding that you need in order to know and to do My Will. For through the ministry of the Spirit, you are filled with the joy that surmounts the ills of the world and will of the adversary, and through the anointing of the Spirit, you receive the meekness to obey the will of the Father in place of the pride to seek out and do the will of the flesh.

Time is short, My dear one, and much remains to be done. Know My written and revealed will, and follow it, for therein you will find the peace that passes understanding. Seek My heart, and receive it, for therein you will find the shelter and refuge you will need as the anger of the adversary upon the earth increases. Be strong, and of good courage; fear not, for I am with you.


May you glory in Christ Jesus because of the grace by which God gave you your priestly service of proclaiming the Gospel of God so that the people who accept the word you share might become an offering acceptable to God, sanctified by the Holy Spirit. Romans 15


May you not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through you by the power of signs and miracles, through the power of the Spirit, to fully proclaim the gospel of Christ. Romans 15


May you lift up your soul to the Lord and trust in God, for no one whose hope is in Him will ever be put to shame, nor will your enemies triumph over you, unlike those who are treacherous without cause. Psalm 25

May the Lord remember His great mercy and love, which are eternal, and recall not the sins of our youth and rebellious ways, for He is good! Psalm 25


May the Lord, Who is good and upright, instruct you in His ways, guiding the humble in what is right and leading those who cling to His promises and decrees on His paths of mercy and truth. Psalm 25


May you fear the Lord, for you will be instructed by Him in the way chosen for you, the secret counsel of the Lord is given to you, your soul will lodge in grace and dwell at ease, He will reveal to you the intent of His promise, and your seed will possess the land. Psalm 25


May your eyes ever be on the Lord, for only He will rescue you from the traps of your enemies. Psalm 25


May you desire wise words and lips that speak knowledge from God more than much gold and many precious stones. Proverbs 20:15
