God doesn’t vacillate, change or need to change. He doesn’t have mood swings, have off days, He is a constant, He is the only constant in the universe. Everything around is changing but He doesn’t.

‪You can’t change God no matter how hard you try. It is you that has to change and the quicker you do that the better it is for everyone.‬

The Truth will set you free

Get rid of your own plans. Put aside your own personal desires. Abandon your personal ambitions. Let Him take you on a journey into His glory. Allow Him to show you His wonders. Expose yourself to His love. Get to know His heart you will see and understand His purposes for you. You will see His plans for the future of this nation. He needs people who will rise up and carry the mantle further. Many have carried it in the past. Many of those around you have fallen asleep. They are dozing and need waking up.

As they wake up, it will be with a jolt. Some will complain that there was no warning. But at least they are awake. No-one should have slumbered. Be awake. Be alert. Listen to those who can see. Those that have put their heads above the parapet. They see the coming wind and rain. They can see the wave of His Spirit coming. They are sounding the horn announcing the coming King. There is a warning of change to the status quo as His mighty power sweeps through the nation and across the world. Some are starting to experience the beginnings of it.

Don’t strengthen your walls and barriers to protect yourself from the coming changes. Change is inevitable. Don’t harden your heart. A soft heart is needed. Pray for a softening of your heart. Be hungry for the truth. Jesus is The Truth that will set you free. Some may reject the truth, they are rejecting Jesus not you. What you thought was solid will be turned to dust. Only what is His will remain.

You are very special

God has forgiven every sin past, present or future. He doesn’t weigh in the balance if the good bits out weigh the bad bits. You might well do that. He has dealt with all the bad bits through the blood of Jesus. Does this mean that we can sin as much as we want. If you are asking that question you have missed the point. If you do then you will face the consequences of your actions. It will mean that this life that He gave you in the first place will count for nothing. You won’t live life to the full, in full measure, running over.

Your life is not enhanced by sin. You were made, designed not to sin. It is your default setting. Your natural DNA is to do what is right. You have to deliberately work against the original design of your lives in order to sin. When you encounter Him you encounter His love and forgiveness and His grace. When you receive His grace you never earned it and never will. So what would entice you away from knowing His love? He has given you everything to live in the joy of His salvation, you have no excuses. However we are imperfect, there are forces at work to make you trip up, fall and give up.

God never condemns you. The enemy has only one aim in mind to disrupt your relationship with Him. The enemy will exploit every weakness in you, every flaw and any opportunity. So no matter what happens keep your connection with Him sacred and strong.

Do you sin? Do you fail? Do you feel that you let God down? Are you disappointed in yourself? Do you consider yourself a failure?Do you feel guilty? Do you feel ashamed? Do you think God is a little bit disappointed in you? Do you feel God couldn’t possibly use you? Do you feel that you have missed out because you haven’t been good enough? Do you feel dirty and unclean?

These feelings aren’t shared by Him. They don’t give you a licence to sin but they shouldn’t stop you from approaching Him. He knows and there is no condemnation. So if that is the case does it matter if we sin or not? Yes, very much. Although He doesn’t condemn us, we condemn ourselves, the enemy can accuse us, and the whole process makes our walk with Him so much harder. Sin will rob us of our inheritance and that is why God hates it so much. It breaks our relationship with Him but only from our side. He is so good that He will help you overcome yourself. He will help you overcome the world and everything it can throw against you. He wants you to be free and will move heaven and earth to help you.

Every single person is very special and extremely precious to him. You are exceedingly precious to Him. That means everyone you see or meet whether in church, at work, waiting for a bus or randomly walking past you are also special. Remember how He feels about them.

Be near Him

You are an ambassador for Him. You will tell people about His kindness and show them His goodness. You will set people free. You will heal their sicknesses. You will deliver them from torment. He knows your limits. The task would be too immense and intense for you but not for Him. So rest in Him, let Him do it through you. Because through you He will bring His unbridled joy and peace to many but firstly and lastly be captivated by His love. Be singularly devoted to Him. Surrender everything. Let all ambition go. Let your desires be His desires. Just follow Him not your own plans. He is to be your goal.

As you aim to be near Him. He becomes the total of your ambition and desire. You will long for nothing else. Devoting yourself totally to Him. So walk with Him and commune with Him every day. Every fibre of your being will cry out for Him. For all of Him cries out for His people. Make it your goal to set His people free.

Sat Nav Miracle

We had our Sat Nav stolen from our car outside our house about three months ago. I prayed for it to return but eventually bought a new one. the last few weeks being praying everyday for a miracle, sign or wonder. something to encourage myself and others. A member of the church who works in the office put a message on FaceBook that someone had found a Sat Nav at the Harrogate Park Run one Saturday in September. They found that one of the destinations was the church office in Harrogate. so I emailed the person from Park Run, giving some more destinations that were on the Sat Nav to confirm it was ours. Now we are in possession of our original Sat Nav. Praise God.

His heart’s cry

Do you think He is trying to make things deliberately hard for you? He doesn’t, in case you are wondering. He encourages people to seek Him and He wants them to find Him. It becomes a challenge for people because they are unwilling to believe in Him despite all the evidence. The world has hardened its heart towards Him. It means that there is a spirit in the world where He is criticised for everything that happens, for everything that is wrong. There is little or no love for Him. There is a lot of religion but little deep felt love and devotion.

He wants you to find the key to unlock His heart so that He can pour out His love and His creation can feel His love. His heart’s cry is for fellowship and communion. Hearts can become calloused from years of listening to lies or half-truths.

Your mind can be full of stuff. The events of the day. Events yet to happen. The pressure of life. The many problems that may or may not happen. The unrealistic expectations of other people. The unreasonable expectations of yourself He has never set.

That is why He may take you somewhere quiet to wait on Him and listen to Him. Even in that place there is still the temptation to pace the floor. Be still and know that He is God. Set your mind to seek Him. Set your heart to know Him for His love knows no bounds. Set your heart to know His goodness. Be determined to prove and experience how good He is.
For that will be a turning point in your life. You don’t have to feel anything. Don’t attach an emotional feeling to God. This can be unreliable. You will experience the depth of His heart. The shear depth of His love and compassion for you and for everyone else whoever or whatever they are. You will know how He feels about a lost world where people are hurting and without hope.

He may have stretched you to your limit. Maybe even brought you to the brink of what you would call failure or disaster and feelings of deep despair. Why? Because He wants to increase your capacity to love, to know His love and to show His kind of love.

His glory is on you

Be in awe of Him rather than in awe of man. Even those you have looked up to in the past will look up to you when they see His favour on you. Seek Him, then you will see His glory come. Signs and wonders will follow you, they are meant to. People will want to know Him when they see how much you know Him.

You will meet all sorts of great people in your time but you will only need time for The One. He chooses the path, you chose to follow Him. You haven’t chosen this path for yourself. It is because you have humbled yourself before Him that He is leading you along it. It is not because you deserve it but because you know that you don’t. Your heart of compassion burns bright within you and it lights up His face. You are the light and desire of His heart. He desires nothing but for you to draw near to Him and have fellowship with Him.

A day like no other

Today could be such a pivotal day for you, impacting the rest of your life. Say yes to Him and set your face to find Him, to understand His heart. He will reveal Himself to you. Today could change the rest of your life.

Some people do not like what they hear Him say. They close their ears because it doesn’t fit in with what they want to hear. When He speaks it is as thunder. It is like the sound of many waterfalls. It is a sound like no other. It is intimidating because He is the living God. You know He doesn’t do it to intimidate. But when you draw near to Him and see Him for what He is you see His love. You see His joy. You feel His peace and experience His glory. You will be filled with such awe and wonder. That is what the true fear of God is like.

You will have a healthy respect for God knowing how powerful He is. You will know when you are truly in His presence. You will have trouble standing. Nor will you care what others think. You are more concerned with what He wants and what He desires. He is teaching and showing you how to knit His heart to yours. There has to be change on our side we would not survive the process.

You will be very surprised at just how good and gracious He is. The lie is that you have to earn it or be good enough to be loved by Him. Great minds have struggled to comprehend the truth. He reveals Himself to the hungry and those who persevere. His power is released to those He knows He can trust. Those who know how to handle the truth, who know The Truth.

Rest assured

Rest and be assured that He is able to meet all your needs. There is nothing He is not able and willing to do. He can work out every detail. There is no lack, no mistakes, He is perfect in every way.

He is a God of abundant grace. He is the God of overwhelming compassion and love. There is no one like Him. No-one to compare. We cannot make any comparisons because nothing will never match up to Him. No matter even if you combine all their acts of kindness they still fall far short of His goodness. His love is utterly perfect. All the joy in the world will still look miserable compared to His joy. He lacks nothing and He offers everything to you. You have access to everything He has and everything He is. We are His children.

We cannot afford to have a slave mentality because that brings up drudgery, hardship and strife. He gave you free will. You are meant to be free not enslaved by your fears, worries or doubts.

If you want to please Him. Please Him as a son and daughter. Never needing to strive for His approval. Nor trying to impress Him with your works and your effort. You do not earn extra merits for being good. He rewards those who earnestly seek Him and those who hunger and thirst to be like Him. To demonstrate His power so they can share His goodness and kindness through signs, wonders and miracles. Not comparing themselves with others. There is no room for sibling rivalry. Everyone has an equal opportunity in His kingdom. Everyone is deeply loved and cared for.

You are part of His family. What He offers you is free to all. You all get the same inheritance no matter what your station in life. It is not about your gifting or ability, or even your achievements. Those who learn the secret of His kingdom will be given more because they have found the key to multiplication, rather than manipulation.

His grace is sufficient

The anointing grows the more you listen and respond to Him. He is holding nothing back from you. He is offering you a simple life of obedience filled with joy. It will not look much to others but they will be jealous and envious of what you have. You will have great peace and joy the sort the world can only dream of.

The world uses a different measuring stick for success. You will be able to feel and measure His pleasure. You will experience His goodness where you are and then some more. Abundance is your inheritance. So much so that you will have more than enough to give away. Your inheritance is hidden in Him. He is your inheritance. He is your future your reward. He will be your strength in times of hardship because you will know Him so well. Others may know about Him but you will know Him. His joy is complete in you.

Your past is no reflection of your future. His grace is more than sufficient. He is the all sufficient One.
