You bring your requests to Me in Jesus’ name. Do you know how precious that is to Me?  My very existence is tied to love for My beloved Son. I want Him to be worshipped and glorified.

He has always been with Me. We knew even before Eve took the first bite of the forbidden apple that Jesus would have to go down to earth. There was a part of us that wanted Him to go and experience everything through the eyes of the humans We had created, but there was a larger part of Us that dreaded the horrible pain He would go through, the rejection, total humiliation from those We created and loved.  

And then the awful separation as I withdrew and let Him die, so alone and in so much pain, bearing the weight of the world’s sin on His beautiful shoulders.

So, when you come to Me in prayer and close the prayer, “In Jesus’ Name”, a thousand electric bolts go through the air as what you have said has special significance or special delivery.

“In Jesus’ Name”…how precious to hear. How wonderful that you, My beloved, chosen child, would come to Me in the Name of the Most precious being in the universe.

“In Jesus’ Name”. 

I have afforded that statement all the power in the world.  

And to you, My child, I have given that power, through Jesus…….in Jesus’ Name.

I will guide you through the confusing issues of today, and tomorrow, and to the end of the world. You are My beloved one and I will not let confusion separate us.

When you spend time with Me, I will cause confusing things to become clear. Nothing will stand between us if you come to Me with an open mind.

Obey Me. Walk the path I have given you and I will never let you down.  

You are never farther away from Me than a thought, or a whispered prayer, so do not be troubled about the future, for I am always with you, guiding and protecting you.  

Take My hand and we will walk through all problems and all confusing situations.

This morning I was watching you as you slept. I saw you wake up and longed to reach out and gather you into My arms as a father would, to comfort and care for His beloved child, but I resisted and let you arise and start your day.  

Did you start it with Me? Did you ask for My presence to fill you with strength and courage?

How you start the day is crucial, dear one. Gaining access to Me is always available to you, but those first waking moments set a standard for the whole day.

Once we have made the connection, I can fill you with My love, joy and purpose. We have a purpose, dear one, a noble purpose! One in which you walk with Me side by side, reaching out to help those in need, touching the shoulder of one in pain, encouraging those around you. Through our connection, I will make you aware of them. So many are hurting, in need of the knowledge of My love and care for them.

That is your purpose today, dear child. Listen to My gentle urgings. You will see and know.

Ever wonder where a butterfly comes from, or how there are so many different ones, with brilliant patterns and colors splashed on their wings? We had fun creating them, hoping you would take time to notice and appreciate their unusual beauty.

So much of creation is a reminder of Who I am, and how much I love you.

Have you ever noticed the spots on a jaguar, the brilliant colors of tropical fish? The earth is teeming with creatures too beautiful to have “evolved”! They were created for you, to bring your mind to Me.  

Even if someone never has the ability to get close to a Bible, they can find Me through nature. Take time to study it. Go to places where you can experience it first hand.

When you do, you are drawing out of the busyness of the world and taking time to refresh your love and gratitude for Me.

Nature sings praises to Me all the time. Join them in their festive songs, and draw ever closer to the Lover of your soul.

September 23

Close your eyes and envision My presence. Let Me enfold you into My loving arms where you will find true peace and joy.

Don’t search for these gifts in the world. You will not find them there.

Today, I am asking you to take a step of faith, to step out towards the vision I am giving you. Don’t falter or look down. Your strength and direction come from on high.

You are not alone on this journey, for I am ever with you. Whatever obstacles rise up before you can be conquered through Me.

I have given you a purpose for your life, dear one. It is a high calling. Don’t be overwhelmed by it. 

If I chose to show you the end from the beginning, and you continue to follow Me, you will be astounded at where I led you, but if you followed the way of the world, the sight you see will be sad indeed.

Someday we will look at your life together. Take My hand, dear one. Let Me take you into uncharted territory, to the most intimate walk with Me. 

Let your legacy be: “you walked with God.”

September 22

Oh, how the heavens are available to help you each and every day!! What does that mean? All heaven stands ready to come to your aid if you but ask. 

Call in the troops! Bring your requests to Us. Nothing is too big or too small for Us.

I want to have this power displayed on earth, but few today sincerely ask for it and believe that it is possible.

The Bible is full of stories of men and women who believed in Me and acted on it. I was with them, just as I am with you.

I have a mission for you to fulfill. It may be right in your back yard, or it may be in a far away country. You know or are discovering the plan I have for you.

Don’t ever give up, no matter your age. I will not be done working in you and through you until your dying breath!

What joy as we reach up to the stars in our quest. You see, I have great joy as well, for I will be beside you all the way, urging you on, slowly unveiling the fullness of My dream to you each step you take in faith.

I am so pleased with you, My child. Believe that, and trust in Me.

September 21

Are you sad this morning? Do your troubles seem overwhelming?

They are not. Nothing is, when you stay connected to Me, allowing Me to help you.

There is always hope. Never let yourself give up on the dream or the passion that I gave you, and never give up on the person for whom you have been praying.

There is an answer, dear one.

Perhaps not the easy answer you are seeking, but as your love entwines itself now with Mine, you will learn to wait patiently for My timing and My answers.

For I love you more than you love yourself. I love the one you are praying for more than you can.

So trust in Me, beloved. You have chosen Me and I will work everything out for the best.

Trust in that knowledge.

September 20

I have given you power, dear one, in the Name of My Son, Jesus, to conquer all the evil in this world.  

Power to heal and to help. Power to love and to let go.

Do you use it? Do you call on that power?  

As My child, it is your birthright. Use it to glorify Me. By helping others, I am glorified. By standing strong against the evil one, I am glorified.

Together we can face anything, dear one. You will always be victorious if I am with you.

Take My hand and feel the power that I offer to you. Never go without it.  

Let Me protect you, guide you and keep you in My love, now and always.

September 19

Listen to the cheerful calls of the birds this morning as they sing My praises. You can hear them chatter and trill through the early morning hours. Although they continue through the day, their sounds of praise are muffled by the sounds of the busy world.

Find time to come apart from that world and listen again. Rest your soul by clearing your mind of your problems and focus on Me. Train yourself to listen to the silence.  

Is the wind blowing through the trees? Are the leaves rustling? Can you hear the locusts?  Can you hear the birds?

Are you in a busy city where it is hard to hear? Close your eyes and remember when you were in a place that you were able to. Let the memory of the sounds come alive in your mind.  

Although I am beside you wherever you are, nature is in constant praise of Me, and you will sense My presence more when you surround yourself either in nature, or in the memory of it.

Finding this quiet place and time will arm your soul with peace, a very important shield in your world.

Finally, dear one, do not let the clamors of the world overwhelm you. You are the child of the King.  

Face this day with the knowledge of My love.

September 18

How precious you are to Me, dear one! I look at you with such pride and love.

How with pride, you ask? When you accepted Me and My love through Christ’s death on the cross, and asked forgiveness for your sins, I covered you with His blood. And when I look at you now, I see a pure child, a child whose purity is as white as snow.

So when you come to Me, come with the security of knowing you are no longer covered in sin, even though you may have sinned terribly the day before. When you ask forgiveness for that sin, I throw it away, down deep in the sea, and My lamb remains pure.

Because of Jesus’ sacrifice, there are no barriers between us. No past problems, no past sins. I see your face and I long to cup it in My hands and tell you how much your Father loves you.

Believe that, dear one. Know it from the bottom of your heart.  

You and Me. Me and you.
