Rise Above the Ashes


Today I have a very simple, but profoundly important outpouring I need you to hear.

God needs you to rise above the ashes of all you’ve overcome. 

Sweet friend, we can overcome a whole host of nonsense to our lives be it personal sin, addiction, affliction or generational iniquity and have a single message or phone call derail our entire outlook and sink us back into the burnt ashes of what God has already settled. Come on up out of the ashes, sweet one.The devil is crafty.  The world is cunning.  But let’s not allow them the satisfaction of feeling powerful.  If “something” has unsettled your position as a daughter of God inside your soul or spirit today call it out for what it is, establish spiritual boundaries within your own heart and mind where they need to be placed and spiritually get on with it.  Today is the day the Lord needs your heart yielded and unfettered.  If your soul is breathing you have a future and a hope.  Pay no mind to thieves, dear one.  The devil is a scoundrel that needs to be sent back to the pit he belongs in.  If you’ve spent the first half of today hearing false labels being whispered into your ears by that rascal – call him out.  Proclaim your position.  Get yourself in front of Truth.  Slide Truth into your ears.  Let Truth fall fresh all over you like a Spring Rain.Toss off what is trying to bully you back to bondage.  God is for you.  It will be alright.  Today, whatever mountain God has helped you climb to get wherever you are in life…..don’t stop.  Don’t sabotage your growth.  Don’t allow human flesh, the craftiness of a stale lifeless enemy or anything else sabotage your progression towards acquiring expansive spiritual territory.

Don’t allow circumstance to paralyze you.  Push through, push on, push up.

Keep yielding.Allow whatever came in front of you today to fuel greater growth towards Jesus.Greater Grace.  Strength to strength.Our goal is Jesus.  Our vision is Kingdom.  Our ambition is to make Disciples of Christ.  Remember, with each place you have believed He will be faithful before…keep believing He will continue to be faithful.There is no insecurity in His eyes.There is no lack of provision in His storehouse.There is no wavering in His acceptance or love for you.There is no fear or hesitation in His relationship towards you.His very nature is faithfulness.His character is sure.  And He has chosen you.  Where you are, with all you’ve come from, with what you have to be who He created you to be from before the foundation of time to bless and expose the Kingdom.  He has you safe inside His care, dear one.Let His love hold your hand and lead you towards more and more Victory in His Name for His glory.

“Peace I leave with you; My {own} peace I know give and bequeath to you.  Not as the world gives do I give to you.  Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.  {Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.}

John 14:27
