Is. 65:24 says "And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear."

God is bringing you into another realm of answered prayer. There is a place where God will discern the desires of your heart and even before you open your mouth to pray God says He will have already answered you based on what was in your heart. Can I tell you God is so committed to your success that He will provide you with all the provision necessary to ensure your well-being.

God will undoubtedly reveal Himself to you as Jehovah-Jireh (the Lord who Sees and the One who provides always). Think about it, when Abraham went up the mountain to sacrifice his only son Isaac what Abraham discovered was that God had already prepared a sacrifice for himself in the form of a ram. The good news for Abraham was he wouldn't need to sacrifice his only son Isaac because God had already answered the silent prayers of his heart, which, was to save his only son. The great news for you is this, if you will be faithful and follow God today with passion and fervency, you too will discover another realm of answered prayer.

The prophetic word in this hour is this...God is going to answer you before you call. Sometimes you don't even know what you need just yet but the good news is God does. Just remember this, God has your back in more ways than you could even imagine. Today rest in the promise of the Lord and that is He is answering you even before you call. Hallelujah to our Lord Jesus Christ!! He is so good that He is answering calls that have yet to be made just because He loves us. Our God knows what we have need of even before we ask and so the prophetic promise this day is again, "I will answer you before you call," says the Lord.

"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap. 8For he that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting..." -Galatians 6:7-8

You must feed where you are going, not where you been. Think about what I just said, "you must feed where you are trying to go not where you've been." Stop looking back but look ahead because God has delivered you from your past and He is now calling you forward into supernatural favor and blessing.

Don't let people or family pull you back to the point that it hinders you from living the dream. Get with people who are going to sharpen you, pray with you and believe in you. Get around positive people who can inspire you to be and do more. Read the Word! Worship today! Repeat over and over to yourself what God has promised you! Claim that blessing and open door as belonging to you.

Today I want to encourage you and remind you that God believes in you. He sees you becoming great and accomplishing Big things in your life. Just remember to feed where you are going, not where you been. Today I pray in Jesus' name nothing holds you back from living God's dream for your life.

Hebrews 4:16 says "Let us come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in a time of need."

It is God's desire for you to enter His presence without any hesitancy or reservation. God doesn't want you afraid of Him but rather his desire is for you to know you have right to enter His presence and appear before His throne. This is why the Scripture says to come boldly. The perfect picture to help you understand this is when a child is crying or in great need the first thing they do is run to mommy or daddy. The child doesn't hesitate to interrupt their parent. They don't understand protocol or excuse me just yet. All they know is I want my mommy and my daddy. In the same way God wants you to know Him in that same way.

You don't have to suffer alone or deal with things apart from God. There is grace and mercy waiting for you in the presence of God. In fact He says come boldly to get some of that amazing grace and mercy. What is grace? Grace stands for God's riches at Christ expense. In other words, God is rich in whatever you are lacking. Today if you need favor God has plenty of it. If you need an opportunity or open doors to be created, God has plenty of that too. All you need to do is go get it in God.

Humble yourself, move past your old mind set and enter into the presence of God by calling on Jesus and declaring His goodness in your life. Remind yourself how much God loves you and the fact His mercies are new every morning. What will it be today for you? Are you going to be scared to approach God because of what you did or how you feel or are you going to believe God loves you enough no matter what that you can run to Him anytime and say "Daddy I need some of your love and grace in my life today."

"And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved on the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light." -Genesis 1:2-3

God is amazing! The God we serve can take formless and empty and dark situations and totally turn them around. No matter how dark your life is or how crazy things may be at this moment you can experience a move of the Spirit where your life is totally shifted for the glory of God. It doesn't matter how formless and empty your life may be, God's has glory that will be revealed even in the midst of craziness.

Out of darkness God commanded the light to shine. Although you may not sense it or feel it there is good that God will call forth out of dark places. Even though things are looking bad at this moment, be encouraged because with God all things are possible. God will bring order to the chaos you find yourself in. Our God is a God of order and He will bring order to your life. There is still hope. No weapon or anything formed by the enemy is going to work when you have two amazing things at work and they are God's Spirit and His Word.

Can I tell you that as long as you have the Word of God and the Spirit of God, there is nothing to hinder you. Today if you will allow the Holy Spirit to move in your life and if you will hear the Word of the Lord something is going to break for you. I can see and hear in the Spirit where God is bringing order and light to chaotic and formless situations. I see the Lord bringing order to chaotic bodies, I see Him bringing light to dark places in your mind and I see Him bringing order to the relationships in your life. In Jesus name your finances are coming into order!!

See and hear what the Lord is saying...know that even in the darkest places of your life God will manifest His goodness and cause His light to shine. Nothing is hopeless with Jesus. Have faith in the Word!

Isaiah 54:17says, "No weapon that is formed against you will prosper...

Be encouraged today because God has said in His Word that there is nothing (and I mean nothing) the enemy can do to stop you when your life is in Christ. Can I tell you the truth, when you put your faith in Christ and abide in His Word, every weapon the enemy creates against you is utterly destroyed by the power of God. Think about it, when the enemy tried to use weapons of confusion God gave you peace. When the enemy tried to use weapons of lack God gave you manna from heaven and water from rocks. In other words, God said there will never be lack or poverty for those who follow Him because He is the "Good Shepherd" who ensures that you shall never want (or lack).

Can I go further? How about sickness, when the enemy tried to use that God said "by His stripes you are healed." When the enemy tried to close doors on you and keep you stuck at this level for years and years God said in Deuteronomy 1:6 that you have been at this place too long and it's time for you to leave this place "now" because I have another place of promise that I am giving you and am bringing you into.

Today can I tell you there is nothing the enemy can create to stop you if you are in Christ. Today receive this in your spirit, "You can do all things through Christ who gives you the power" and there is nothing the enemy can do or plot against you that will stop you from reaching your destiny in God. Hallelujah!!!

And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognize Him, ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was. Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country they laid the sick in the marketplaces and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him was made well. -Mark 6:54-56

The power of the hem is revealed in Numbers 15:37-41, Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel: Tell them to make tassels on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put a blue thread in the tassels of the corners. And you shall have the tassel, that you may look upon it and remember all the commandments of the Lord and do them, and that you may not follow the harlotry to which your own heart and your own eyes are inclined, and that you may remember and do all my commandments and be holy for your God. I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the Lord your God.”

Tassels are long pieces of thread that hang from the hem of garments and they serve to remind people of the Word of God and how they are to embrace it. In many translations of the New Testament, you find the word hem being used for the word tassel. During the times of Jesus, when people sought to touch the hem of Jesus’ garment, what they were attempting to do was to take hold of the tassels that hung from Jesus’ clothes.

The significance of the hem [or tassel] is that all who sought to touch the hem of Jesus’ garments were not just touching an ordinary piece of clothing but they were actually laying hold of a physical representation of the Divine Word of God. Each time we see a person in the gospel pressing their way through a crowd to reach the feet of Jesus, they were all pressing their way to lay a hold of God’s promise which rested at the hem. As God revealed to Moses in Numbers, the tassels are there to help us REMEMBER what God has promised us.

Today I want to tell you that every answer you need is still at the hem of Jesus. If you can press your way through the issues of life by laying hold of the tassels that are at the hem of Jesus, you too will discover healing and supernatural breakthrough. There is power at the feet of Jesus. Worship Him at His feet because that's where the blessing lives. The truth of the matters this...the only way to access the hem of Jesus is to get to the feet of Jesus. This only takes place in true worship. The more you worship Christ, the more you will find the grace to remember what the Lord has promised you and what He has already provided for you.

“Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people), making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil. Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is.” –Ephesians 5:15-17

The most valuable asset in your life is time. Time is more valuable than diamonds, gold, rubies or anything on earth, for it is the one thing you can never get back. If someone robs you of your money, you can get more of it but if someone robs you of your time, it’s forever gone. One of the most important questions you should ask yourself over and over is, “do I invest my time or do I just spend it?” Spending time alone yields no harvest (or return). Time invested brings a harvest of fruit and increase.

The Word instructs you to live purposely and to make the very most of the time you have. That means you are to buy up every opportunity you can because wisdom teaches us that opportunities are limited by time. Every opportunity has an expiration date. Therefore it is critical that we seek wisdom from above to live life accurately and wisely. Time with God must be your number one priority so that the Holy Spirit can order your steps. Steps ordered by God will always be time invested well.

Too often many people complain that they aren’t growing or it is taking too long to reach their goals but a careful examination of their time would likely reveal that they spend majority of their time than they invest it. It is only invested time that yields fruit, not time spent (or time wasted). C.S. Lewis wrote, “The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.” Time is no respecter of persons. It has no favorites. Each man is given the same number of seconds, minutes and hours in a day—the only difference is the time invested.

Today make it a KEY to start investing your time. Use your time wisely in such a way that your time will bring you a profit in the future and help you create the life you want.

Deut. 28:1 says, “The Lord (not man) will set you on high above all nations of the earth.”

Promotion doesn't come from the east or west but it comes from God. It is the Lord who blesses you to elevate in life (not man). Stop looking for man to do what only God can. The Bible tells us that if we listen carefully to the voice of God and follow His Word, the promise is a blessing of elevation. Whatever level or place you've been stuck at, it's time for you to prepare to move from this place. God is ready to bless you beyond measure. He is ready to move you into another realm of life and another dimension in your walk with Him so that the world looks up at you. This is God's plan for you but it's execution is dependent on your commitment to hear the voice of God and then follow it. Jesus said my sheep know my voice and another voice they will not follow.

Today what voice will you hear and what voice will you follow? If your desire is change and you sincerely want more because you sense there is more that God has for you...make a decision today to follow God's voice no matter what. Let nothing get in your way or even compete with your time with God. He desires more for you and for you to see that more it is going to take you giving God more of you...more of your time, more of your heart, more of your thoughts and more of your commitment. Promotion is a blessing and it is something that has been promised to you. Step into it! You have what it takes...get rid of any thought that says different.

In the Complete Jewish Study Bible, 2 Cor. 10:3-5 reads,

“For although we do live in the world, we do not wage war in a worldly way; because the weapons we use to wage war are not worldly. ON the contrary, they have God’s power for demolishing strongholds. We demolish arguments and every arrogance that raises itself up against the knowledge of God; we take every thought captive and make it obey the Messiah.”

How you think will determine how you live. The devil understands this principle better than most Christians. This is why he works so hard to tell us lies and throw thoughts of doubt into our minds so we fail to be all who God has destined for us to become.

If the devil can get you to accept a lie or any of his other crazy thoughts, he then has succeeded in making you unsure and unstable. The Bible declares that a double-minded man is unstable in all his ways. The devil is out to keep you double-minded with the hopes of making you confused, unstable and defeated.


How do we overcome this? The way to overcome the work of the enemy is to...

1) Take authority over the negative thoughts by rebuking them in Jesus' Name
2) Fill your mind with the Word of God on a consistent basis
3) Leave no space for the lies of satan by meditating on the Word of God day and night. This means you speak the Word and quietly whisper it though out your day so that it becomes a part of your memory.

You have to pulled out the sword of the spirit (the Word of God) on a daily basis so that you whipped the devil’s butt with it. When the devil says, “you are weak,” you must say “I am strong in the Lord and in the power of his might.” (Eph. 6:10)

When the devil causes you to fear, you must say “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes came upon me to eat up my flesh, they all stumbled and fell.” (Ps. 27:1,2)

If the devil says, “if you get on this plane, it’s going to fall and you will die.” Your response must be “devil, I have some thoughts for you. The Lord is going before me. The blood of Jesus is over me. The everlasting arms of God are under me. And His goodness and mercy are behind me following me all the days of my life." (Now this is how you fight!)

How you feel or what others say about you is not important. You are who God says you are; He sees in you more than you can possibly imagine. Your potential is limited only by God, not others. God came to a frightened young man named Gideon. Gideon obviously thought God was talking to someone else when the angel of the Lord called him a mighty warrior (Judges 6:12). The angel didn’t say, “Oh, coward. Do you know you have strength?” Nor did the angel say, “Oh black man, do you know that you can be like the white man?” The angel just came in and announced what he saw: “Oh mighty man of valor.” That means “oh great warrior.”

Think about it. Warrior? Gideon was hiding from the enemy trying to separate some wheat from the chaff so he wouldn’t starve. He was doing it underground so no one could see him. When the angel said, “you are a brave man,” Gideon started looking around to see who the angel was talking to.

God never tells us what others see. He never calls us what others calls us. Gideon thought he was a coward. God knew him to a great warrior and simply, pronounced what He saw.

God also saw in Peter what others failed to see. His given name was Simon, which means “unstable or flaky.” When Jesus met Simon, he was the flakiest man you ever met. He was always going with the wind—changing his mind. But God saw a stone in the flakiness. The first time Jesus met Simon, He changed his name from Simon (unstable) to Peter (stone). Although Simon was an unstable guy, Jesus said, “I’m going to change your name. Your name is Peter.” Peter acted flaky throughout Jesus’ earthly ministry but still Jesus called him rock every morning. Jesus saw in Peter something his mother had not seen. He kept chipping until finally, at Pentecost, Peter’s true nature was revealed. Today, I want to remind you that you are not who you use to be and that God has looked at you too and He has given you a new name.

Don’t discuss anything with a painter or a sculptor until his work is finished. An artist can be very rude if you disturb him before he has accomplished what he intends to do. This is largely due to the fact that an artist sees things differently than most people. An artist can take junk and turn it into a work of art. For example, an artist may walk by some stones or wood in your front yard that isn’t being used and see something great in it. An artist may even ask or beg you for that old junk in your front yard. Not thinking and since you plan on throwing it away at some point, you go ahead and let the artist have your junk for free.

Not long after some time has past, the same artist decides to invite you to his art show. Being a nice neighbor, you decide to attend. While there, you notice this masterfully sculpted work of art. As you get closer to study this work of art, the artist notices you and so he decides to quietly walk toward you. In a quiet and very polite voice, the artist ask, “Do you know where that came from?”

Your response is… “Europe or Asia?” “No” says the artist. “It actually came from your yard.” “Do you mean…?” “Yes.” “Five hundred dollars, please.” All of long you were sitting on five hundred dollars, and you didn’t even know it. The dogs were doing stuff on five hundred dollars but you couldn’t see the potential in them dirty old rocks you had.

God is very much like this artist or sculptor. He sees things in you that everybody else ignores. When the world rejects you, and you land on the garbage heap of the world, God notices you and He accepts you. He walks along and picks you up. And then He looks deep within you and sees a person of tremendous worth. Don’t ever let anybody throw you away. You are not junk! When God looks at you, He sees things that nobody else can see. Sometimes you can't even see what God sees but know this...You are worth so much that Jesus went to Calvary to salvage and reclaim you. God is the only true judge of your worth. Don’t let the opinions of others define who you are because they don't see the how God sees. Today, allow God's Word to be final in our life as far as who you are and who you will become.

1 John 4:4 says, “You are of God, little children, and have
overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the
world.”


The word “overcome” here is the word “nike” and it means victory.
The Bible says, "you have overcome them." Who is “them?" “Them” are the ones
talked about in 1 John 4:3, and they are the "anti-christ" folks. "Anti-christ" folks are people who
don’t believe in Jesus as the Christ. Therefore they are anti-anointing
folks. You see there are haters in the world who will hate on the anointing in
your life. These haters hate to see God move and especially through you. They hate to see God
bless you and they hate to see you prosper. Have you ever had someone or people in your life who are always
bitter when you get bless? These are the anti-christ or "anti-you" folks.

In this season of your life, it's important that you are careful
around such people. They will try to fight the God in you and if you aren’t
careful they will end up defeating you because you will find yourself acquiescing
to them when you really have been called to overcome them.


Hear the voice of the Spirit, God is saying, “LIVE AS AN OVERCOMER.” God has set this thing up so good that through Him you defeat every hater in your
life. Every anti-christ, (anti-anointing) and/or anti-you person must get out of your way in Jesus' Name. Today, just receive it by faith and confess it over your life. It is a
promise from God.

Phil. 2:9-11 says, "Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

Every demon power has a name. Every person has a name. Every sickness and disease has a name. Every scheme of the devil has a name. When the name of Jesus is spoken, demon powers must flee. When the name of Jesus is spoken, cancer, arthritis and all other forms of diseases must bow. When the name of Jesus is spoken, Satan’s schemes must be defeated. There is nothing on earth, above or under that is higher or stronger than Jesus.

Like the song says, "there is nobody greater than You, there is nobody stronger than You, there is nobody higher than You and there's no one who can do what He can." Today I want to tell you that Jesus is the sweetest name on earth and that's why we love to speak His Name. I'm not sure of what struggle is at this present moment but I am sure of this one thing, Jesus can work it out. Just start speaking His name over the situations you find yourself in and watch what will happen, you will see that those negative situations have to bow to the name of Jesus.

Deut. 28:1 says "If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth."

There is a grace to elevate. You do not have to stay at the level you are. There is so much more that God has for you to be and to do. God has a blessing so strong that it literally sets you a part. The blessing of elevation will take you from the back to the front and from the bottom to the top.

To experience the blessing of elevation, just learn the art of full obedience. If God says go two miles, go two miles. Don't stop at one mile when the Lord has said to go two. This is not fully obeying the voice of God.

Most people are at the same level because of one thing and that is due to their inability to listen effectively. Too many people want promotion without doing what is takes to get that promotion. The truth of the matter is God won't be played. You will never get over on God. If your desire is promotion then it will be because you listen effectively and you applied what the Lord said to your life.

Today make it your aim to be determined to carefully follow all God has spoken to you. Too much is at stake for you to stay where you are...God has a blessing with your name on it and He is ready to elevate you. Are you ready to listen?

Matt. 9:27-29 says "As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, "Have mercy on us, Son of David!" When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" "Yes, Lord," they replied. Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith let it be done to you."

The question today is "DO YOU BELIEVE THE LORD CAN DO THIS?" If you can believe, all things will be possible. I don't know what you need on today but I'm here to tell you God can do anything. He is large and in charge. Can you receive what God has for you on today? God wants to amaze you but can you believe for it? Today I pray the Lord touch your eyes so you can see what you couldn't before. I pray your faith comes alive and your heart says yes to the creative power of God so you can see all the amazing things He has for you. In Jesus' Name, if you receive, say "Amen!"

Hosea 4:6 says "My people are destroyed for their lack of knowledge."

Knowledge comes from the mouth of God. Every miracle has an instruction. If you miss the instructions of God, you miss the miracle. The prophet told the leper to dip seven times in the water and then you will be healed. Jesus told the blind man to wash in the pool and then you will see. The real question is can you follow instructions. Perhaps you played the popular childhood games called "simon says..." You know the key to that game is having the ability to listen attentively and then follow orders well. This is the same thing with God...if you are to prosper and be successful in life it will be based on your ability to pay attention and follow God's voice. From God's mouth is where we get our instructions.

Every miracle has instructions! Today will give God the time necessary for Him to speak and then will you pay attention enough to get all His instructions. God is ready to do the impossible but are you ready to listen up and then follow through.

2 Timothy 1:7 says, "God has not given you a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind."

Doubt, unbelief, and anxiety did not come from Him. Why would you be scared when God is bigger than anything the enemy can throw at you? Why would you doubt when God said He'll never leave you or forsake you? Why get anxious when you have been promised the victory? Today I wanna tell you that fear or doubt is no longer an option for you. You are bigger than what you think and stronger than what you know. The battle is not yours, it belongs to God. Stand on His Word and position yourself to receive the very best that He has for you. Make a decision to walk in power by choosing to believe God over everything else.

James 5:16 says, "The effective fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." The next verse goes on to say Elijah was a man just like you...he prayed hard that it would rain and it did...let me say something to you, Elijah ain't got nothing on you. The word of God declares how he was a human like you and me. In fact because you are in Christ Jesus and God's Spirit lives in you...you got something on Elijah. You have Christ on the inside of you.

God is no respecter of persons...if one man can pray for rain and it rains...surely you can pray for opportunities, healing and blessings to rain on you. The key is to go hard...don't give God one of those wimpy requests but pray like you know Him and believe you have received what you prayed for because God is ready to rain on you.

Today set yourself free from the chords that bind you to people that were never for you. In fact pray for them and watch what God will do. I pray in Jesus name that you get everything God has promised you.

"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness." -Genesis 1:26

Who told you that you weren't good enough? Genesis 1:31 says "God saw everything that He had made and behold, it was very good." The word good here is the Hebrew word "tov" and it means "excellent, right, prosperous, rich and valuable." Did you get all of that?

God says you are rich, prosperous, valuable, good and excellent. Today I want you to receive this in your spirit. I want you to live your life from this perspective so that you walk in excellence and you prosper in all that you set your hands to do. Never forget how valuable you are in God's eyes and that He made you in his image and likeness. Wow! Have a great day and meditate on the fact that you have been called to look like Jesus.
