Scripture Of The Day - A Piece Of Eternity

Ecclesiastes 3:11 - “He has also set eternity in the hearts of men.”


There is something within you that is being called by eternity. We live in time and space but time and space are connected to eternity, and God has put something into your heart that calls the unseen into the seen.

The vision God has put in your heart is “a piece of eternity” that He gave you to deliver in time and space – that is, on the earth during your lifetime. God lives in eternity, yet He has specifically placed you in time so that others on earth will be able to see a piece of eternity that is in Him.

It is this piece of eternity that makes you uncomfortable or dissatisfied with your present life because you are not yet manifesting YOUR PURPOSE.

Scripture Of The Day - Faith Without Actions

1 Corinthians 3:9 - "For we are co-workers in God's service; you are God's field, God's building."

Some believers think faith is a one-way street. They believe in God and wait on God to do the work. They think belief is the only thing they need.

That person does nothing but sit still and procrastinates, waiting for God. "Well, I'll just pray about it." they use waiting on God as an excuse for their own lack of engagement. "If God means for me to have it, I'll have it," they reason.

In order to advance in God's purpose for your life, you have to be engaged in the process. God definitely plays a role, but so must you. James 2:26 - "As the lifeless body is dead, so faith without actions is dead."

Scripture Of The Day - Embracing The Abundant Life

John 10:10 - "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly."

He is working deep in your heart, He is working and rewiring your mind as you feast on His truth, and He is strengthening you for what is ahead. He is bringing you further into the abundant life that you have in fulfilling His purpose for your life.

1 Corinthians 2:9 - "But, as it is written, 'What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him.'" He is bringing you forth into a time where you will experience a new lease on life. You will have greater strength in Him than you have ever had. You will have greater peace in Him than you have ever known. You will have greater resilience against the schemes of the enemy than you have had before.

He is increasing you, He is breathing life into you, He is strengthening you, empowering you, reviving you and refreshing you. He is the God who finishes the work that He started (Philippians 1:6).

Scripture Of The Day - We Have The Mind Of Christ

Psalm 118:5-6 "From my distress I called upon the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me in a large place. The Lord is for me; I will not fear; what can man do to me?"

We can unknowingly become attached to our own abilities, the world's structure, religious thinking, relationships, influence, gifts and responsibilities more than the ways of God. Sometimes in our life's journey we can see how our old attachments have held us in unbelief, fear, and a false sense of security.

God has an agenda for us to be aligned with His heart, ready to move, with NO ATTACHMENTS! In the NEW, there will be responsibilities and structure, but it will not be the same as the old because that mindset has been stripped away, as we establish ourselves in the mind of Christ. For we HAVE the mind of Christ!

1 Corinthians 2:16 TPT "For who has ever intimately known the mind of the Lord Yahweh well enough to become His counselor? Christ has, and we possess Christ's perceptions."

Scripture Of The Day - Called Before Time

Jeremiah 20:9 - "...But His word was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, and I could not"

Like Jeremiah and Paul, you have been called before time to accomplish significant works for the Kingdom of God. The patriarchs of old had the same fears that we all have, but they pressed through it and changed the world.

God needs you to believe for the inheritance He has prepared for you. Your part is key in His unfolding plan to bring His Kingdom to Earth; it is not intended only to bless you. Other people are waiting for their treasures that He has deposited in you. They are waiting for the anointing on your life to break out!

You are not meant to be like anyone else! God has given you a unique anointing special to you. You have your own anointing and work (God's purpose for your life) that is intended to give you great joy! Grab ahold of life and make it conform to the promises of God -- we are now in the fullness of time for the purposes of God to come forth.

Scripture Of The Day - God Is Faithful

Genesis 39:20,21 - "Joseph’s master took him and put him in prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined. But while Joseph was there in the prison, the LORD was with him;"

No twist or turn—not even abuse, slavery, slander or imprisonment—could hold back the fulfillment of God's destiny for Joseph's life. What people meant for evil, God used for good.

God has not forgotten you. Even when the opposite of your destiny seems to be happening, He is faithful. His promise to you holds power, and He will use every detour and delay to fulfill His promise and bring Himself glory.

Scripture Of The Day - The Tree Of Life

1 Corinthians 11:28-30, "But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep."

Communion is the "mystical form" of the Tree of Life, hidden from the spiritually blind. Jesus said that if we partake unworthily (without understanding that He Himself is the Tree of Life), we are merely partaking of the process of death, receiving bread and the fruit of the vine – another good meal and we are that much closer to death.

But, if we partake with spiritual understanding, knowing what we are doing, we will no longer be weak, sickly, and dying prematurely. Rather, as we rightly partake of communion, we are receiving "quickening life-giving Spirit," and we will be living.

Scripture Of The Day - RESURRECTION LIFE

"But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you." - Romans 8:11

If God the Father was able to breathe new life into the lifeless body of His Son, then you and I are also beneficiaries of this great gift – given to us when Jesus died and was raised from the dead. But it's up to us to grab hold of this gift in faith and believe it as if it were so, because it only comes alive for us as we apply it and say, "It's mine, and I'm not taking no for an answer!" Once we do that we are supernaturally empowered and energized by the mighty power of God—unstoppable!

Psalm 84:11 says, "No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly." That means that He will never refuse to restore to those who ask for help. No one is too far gone if they're still alive and breathing air. In fact, Psalm 116:2 puts it this way: "Because He bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!"

Jesus was raised from the dead by the power of God the Father, and that very same power already resides in us because His Holy Spirit lives inside us. With this inborn power, God can resurrect our dreams, our godly ambitions, and our passions. Every good thing that's been lost can be restored to even greater heights through the miraculous power of God.

Scripture Of The Day - Walking In Our Unlimited Ability

Ephesians 2:10 - "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God afore prepared that we should walk in them."

Understand and meditate on what you are in Christ. Never think of your lack; think of the vast inheritance that is yours, for you know that He has given you the ability to enjoy all that belongs to you.

"Giving thanks unto the Father, who has given us the ability to enjoy our share of the inheritance of the saints in light" - Colossians 1:12. You have His fulness which may be undeveloped in you.

You may never have taken advantage of the riches of the glory of your inheritance in Christ. You were created in Christ. There is no limit to your walk and to your ability.

Scripture Of The Day - Returning To Our Stronghold

Psalm 34:17–19 - "When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all."

There was a heavy fog of discouragement and despair that had fallen upon many people, specifically in the area of promises from the Lord. This fog of despair and discouragement has left many people feeling like things are never going to shift and change, and that it is always going to be like this.

Zechariah 9:12 - "Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope; today I declare that I will restore to you double."

Cry out to the Lord for restoration and the Lord will not only restore the very area where the enemy has torn things to shreds, held you captive, brought delay and kept you from your breakthrough, He is also going to suddenly move you into a place of DOUBLE what you had before.

Scripture Of The Day - Boldly Follow Him

Genesis 12:1 - "The LORD had said to Abram, "Go from your country, your people and your father's household to the land I will show you."

God is calling us to boldly follow Him into the unknown. As we do, we will be brought into a whole new place! The very things that many Believers have been crying out and contending for (even for years at a time) are beginning to take shape.

Though transition can feel shaky, uncomfortable, and even messy at times, the Lord is calling us to embrace this new path and bravely journey forward with Him. The Lord is calling His Bride to trust Him and follow His lead. As we bravely give the Lord our 'yes' and follow where He leads us—journeying with Him on this new and unfamiliar path—we are plowing up new ground.

You have come too far now to quit. Refuse to get weary in well-doing, and know that there are great and exciting things just ahead. God is bringing you into a whole new place, and others will be awestruck by where He takes you.

Scripture Of The Day - Flow Of The Anointing

1John 2:27 “But the anointing that you received from Him abides in you..."


We want a pure river flowing from our hearts. John, the revelator, spoke of a pure river, pure as crystal (Revelation 22:1). He spoke of how the river was flowing out of the throne and out of the Lamb.

The anointing flows from the heart of man, the anointing of God flows from you like a river. Jesus even told us that rivers of living water would flow from our innermost being (John 7:38). This is why it is so important that we are careful about what we see, or hear, or meditate on.

I so, SO hope this is true. I'm counting on it.

Scripture Of The Day - Springing Up Into Everlasting Life

Hosea 2:16 - "'It will come about in that day,' declares the Lord, 'that you will call Me Ishi....'"

Ishi, in Hebrew, is a name which means, "my husband" and expresses the intimacy of a close relationship. You might be in a desert, but the desert doesn't have to be in you. Jesus said there are springs of water in you, "springing up into everlasting life."

The springs begin to well up, and praise and adoration flows out of you. Before you know it, the springs are watering everything around you. You see things differently, you feel differently about people in ways you didn't notice before.

When Jesus shows up in the wilderness, the wilderness disappears. The desert starts growing flowers. Whoever heard of roses in the desert? "...And the desert shall rejoice, and blossom like as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing..." (Isaiah 35:1-2). This happens when the water of life flows out of you, and it flows as you respond to Him.

The Beloved is here, touching the very springs of life in you. "My Beloved is mine and I am His" (Song of Solomon 2:16). There's a sweet aroma now in the desert, there are flowers of praise, and blossoms of thanksgiving. It's a beautiful place.

Scripture Of The Day - Embracing The Ever-Increasing Glory

2 Corinthians 3:18 - "And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."

Steady yourself and stand firm, open your arms and surrender to God's purpose for your life. Ready yourself to receive the weight of God's glory. No more will you be weeping and wailing over what has been lost. You will barely cast a glance at your own life as you rise up to walk in the new life of Christ in you.

As you see a need, you will exercise great faith in the scriptures that manifest God's power. With boldness you will implement your authority to meet the need by drawing on the limitless heavenly resources that are coming into your hands at the exact moment of need.

Angels will be sent forth on assignment to battle any dark force that tries to stand in the way of the fulfillment of your divine calling in Christ.

Scripture Of The Day - Aligning With His Spirit

2 Samuel 5:19,20 - "And David inquired of the LORD, 'Shall I go up against the Philistines?... And he said, 'The LORD has broken through my enemies before me like a breaking flood.'"

The key to breakthrough is to inquire of the Lord. David did not go forward in his own strength but he waited upon the Lord for wisdom and for clarity.

We need to be in alignment with His Spirit. The more the Lord entrusts to us, the more we must learn to wait upon Him. Too many Believers have fallen into a worldly type of wisdom rather than the spirit of wisdom from Heaven.

Have we been led by Him or have we been led by our needs? Have we been led by His Spirit or have we been led by our schedules, our bank accounts and our systems of yesterday?

We must tap into the new and let go of the old. We must surrender ourselves to His presence and not strive to perform through self-will.

Scripture Of The Day - Developing A New Mindset

"'The Kingdom of Heaven is near.' Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give." - Matthew 10:7-9

Will we, today, remain stuck in an old pattern of thinking, or an old pattern of religious performance?
We can no longer remain lukewarm concerning co-laboring with Him and promoting the Kingdom of God. Many Believers have a mindset that we are simply holding on until Jesus comes. No! We are not on the defense, we are on the offense. Get a mindset today that we are advancing! We are moving forward as a mighty army taking ground for Kingdom advancement!

Today, shift into Kingdom reality. Develop an advancing attitude. Determine that you are not retreating but rather advancing! As we pursue this type of Kingdom mentality, know this for a fact: in Kingdom reality, disease cannot stay; poverty cannot stay; devastation cannot stay and shame cannot stay!

To co-labor effectively with God, there must be a complete dependence on His grace.
The mindset that we must hold onto what we have will rob potential Kingdom seed from being sown. Only true multiplication can come from sacrifice of giving in all areas of life.

Remain determined that you are contending for this now!

Scripture Of The Day - Eat Of His Words and Drink Of His Spirit

1 Chronicles 16:29 - "Give to the Lord the glory due His name; bring an offering, and come before Him. Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!"

As Believers in Jesus, we have been issued an invitation to live a life of holiness before God – to be set apart like He is. To be totally and radically different than the world. The power of the Spirit enables us to live "set apart" to God.

God has not called us to dry religion but the living waters of His presence – where we can come and drink at any time and learn to walk in His purpose for our life. "They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, and You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures." (Psalm 36:8) Eat of His Words and drink of His Spirit! In doing this you cannot help but discover life-changing transformation into His very image!

Scripture of the Day - EMBRACING THE FOUNTAIN OF REFRESHMENT

"He was very thirsty, and he called out to the Lord, 'You gave this great deliverance through Your servant, but now may I die of thirst and fall into the hands of the uncircumcised?' So God split open the basin at Lehi, and water flowed out of it. He drank, was refreshed, and revived. Because of this he called the place En Hakkore, which is in Lehi to this day." - Judges 15:18-19

A war-weary Samson called out to God in a moment of desperation and God split open the very ground Samson stood on, causing refreshing water to flow!
"En Hakkore" means the fountain of the crier, or the spring of one who prays.
Your Prayers Have Come Up Before the Lord!

To the worn out, war-weary ones – those who have fought and maybe even seen great victory but now it looks like a dehydrated death in the dust is your portion – there is an En Hakkore for you!

This same Spirit of God that broke open the ground to release refreshing water is the same Holy Spirit that is causing tremors beneath the dry ground beneath you. These tremors are cracking open the dusty places, the dead soil, and the parched earth to release waters of revival, calling, and purpose that will bring a supernatural restoration to you!

Scripture Of The Day - Ascended Living

"But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus" - (Ephesians 2:4-6).


As our minds are renewed and our faith grows, we take these realities as fact and live in the light of them. We come to know that we are above our enemies and refuse to walk in the flesh realm but take our place in Christ in the spirit realm.

No longer will faith be a struggle, but a normal living in the realm of God. The spiritual realm places man where communion with God is a normal experience.

We are not going to grovel in the earthly realm, but we are seated in the heavenly places with the Lord. Every Believer has the right, authority, and ability to minister out of the throne room just as Jesus did.

"Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily" - (Colossians 1:28-29).
