Child, it’s not money or fame. But rather it’s My Presence, My love, and My forgiveness. It’s the peace, strength, and joy I give to one as they go through events of their life. Overall, it’s My Presence guiding and leading each life that creates true success.
In fact, the more of My Presence you have, the greater your success will be.When I fill your heart and soul with My love and you share My love with others, then you will have true success.
The measure of unselfish love in your life is a measure of success in your life.The amount of My love within a life is the true measure of success.
People speak of inner peace. But it is only through My Presence that one can experience the true inner peace that never fails. I love as no one else can love. Experiencing My love and peace is the greatest victory you can have.
What the world sees as success is not how I see it. But I look at the heart. Above all else, a heart full of My love is the greatest measure of success and victory.
Child, I love you.
Lord, I love you too. So help me to please you in all I do and say.

Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically] just as I know your soul prospers [spiritually] 3 John 1:2 AMP
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV
For whatever is born of god overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith. 1 John 5:4 NKJV
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 NKJV
Child, it’s your spirit that’s hungry. But you’ve been feeding yourself. The real issue is that you hunger for My Presence, but you’re going to food instead of Me.
So Lord, what am I to do? How can I defeat these cravings that drive me crazy? What makes me overeat like I do?
Also I feel ashamed of talking to You about my food when there’s so much suffering and heartache in the world. But what am I to do?
Child, go back to the original plan I gave you. Back then during your first 40 days of eating according to My instructions, you were very careful to eat half portions.
Know that it’s not half your food I desire, it’s your submissive heart before Me I desire. As long as you’re holding on to food in your hand, you can’t receive your victory that I’m holding in My hand.
Why you ask? I’ll tell you why. Back then you believed. Now you expect defeat and failure.
Back then when I first told you what to do, your thought was, “I can do this.” Now your thought is “I can’t do this.” That’s your main issue, your belief.
If you think you can’t, you’re right. You can’t.
But you forget, “I can.”
But Lord, are you going to take the food out of my hand?
No, I’m going to take the desire out of your heart.
I don’t see that happening.
Don’t sass Me. Trust Me instead. As it is said, “You’re on thin ice.”
Yes Sir. But . . . it’s just I don’t know what to do.
Do exactly as I’ve instructed you. As you follow and obey My instructions, then you will see victory.
But Lord, what makes me overeat like this? I can’t control myself. Why?
Overall it’s your heart that’s the problem. You love food pleasure more than Me.
Oh Lord, I’m so sorry. How can I change?
Child, you can’t. But I can. It’s time for you to have heart surgery- a circumcised heart before Me. As you submit yourself to Me, I will cut away portions of food-love from your heart.
But you must come to Me daily (sometimes by the minute) for your heart circumcise surgery. As you come to Me, I will remove the part of your heart that loves food. And I will fill your heart with love for Me and others too.
Carry a small notebook with you. When you want to eat, write prayers to Me and for others. So you’ll replace food pleasure with intercession for others. This will fulfill two needs, the needs of others for prayer and the need of you to resist temptation for food pleasure.
My original plan for fasting was to change hearts and replace food consumption with God interaction.
So you’ll replace food consumption with intercession for others. This is a good plan, for it will fulfill two needs, the needs of others and your need to resist temptation.
Instead of your time being used eating, you will now be using time for intercession. This is a good plan.
Also be careful about your portions. That’s a visual of your submission heart, not a greedy heart wanting it all. It’s your submissive heart I desire. It’s your love I desire most of all. I’m not a controlling God that demands obedience. No, I am a God that longs for your love above all else.
It’s the love of food that destroys, robs you of your victory
It will be My love that grants you victory.

The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the Lord upholds him with His hand. Psalms 37:23-24 NKJV
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
And because you belong to Him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin (food compulsion) that leads to death. (Guilt, weight gain) Romans 8:2 NLT
Child, you were created for freedom. As you yield yourself to Me, I’ll set you free. Then I’ll fill you with power to say “No” to unnecessary and trigger foods as you yield yourself to Me.
In fact, I’ll grant you the power to say “No” to all temptations. I plan on making you strong. Not defeated, but strong. Moreover I will grant you victory in all areas of your life.
So let go of what you have and come to Me empty-handed. Then I can I will fill your heart, mind, and soul with Myself.
Oh Lord, that’s what I want. That’s what I really need, more of You.
Lord, settle my mind, and my spirit. Create in me, a new heart and a steadfast spirit. Holy Spirit, lead me to Your will.
Child, as you seek My will, I’ll lead you. But you must seek, trust, and obey as I lead. When you turn your own way, I stop leading for I will not force anyone to choose My way. It must be your choice, your free will, that chooses to follow Me.
So let go of what is in your hand, your abundant food, your pleasure food, and your night-time eating. Satan wants you in bondage, entrapped in defeat. But you were created you for freedom.
Let go of your plans, your dreams, and your desires. For I have more for you. And I want to give you more beyond your dreams, plans, or desires.
What I have for you is beyond your imagination. I want to give you more, but your hands are already too full of what you are holding on to.
I’ve come to give you an abundant life full of victory.
Lord, my sins are piled so high that I can’t see my way out. I’ve lost my courage, my confidence and my assurance.
But You, Lord God, are Almighty. Could you, would you reach down and pull me out of this mudhole I dug for myself?
Child, I love you. And yes, I will lift you up to victory, the one I have planned for you. Quit looking back and beating yourself up for your battles lost.
Instead, look up to Me, for I am holding your victory.
Thank you Lord. Your mercy endures forever.

Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! . . . Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalms 103: 1, 5
Child, you have performance-based love for yourself. When you accomplish much you feel good about yourself . But when you don’t perform as you think you should, you criticize yourself. You judge yourself as a failure.
Open your eyes to see yourself as I see you. You’ve heard it said, “Love your neighbor as yourself”. My child, I say, “Be kind to yourself”.
Quit beating yourself up for your so-called failures. You’re not a failure. You are Mine. I see you as complete in My Presence. I cover you with Myself. Therefore, your so-called flaws are covered by My blood and My Holy Spirit.
As you yield yourself to Me, I’ll lead you to your victory. For I do have victory planned for you. As a matter of fact, I have victory planned for each one of Mine.
When My Spirit is invited into one’s heart, I fill their heart with My victory. Then I lead and direct each one to the victory I have planned for each one specifically.
FEAR OF SHORTAGES
Lord, Abba Father God, I’m afraid of shortages.
Child, you’ve been caught up in fear. Preparation is good, but fear? No, fear is destructive. Child, as you seek My wisdom, I will lead you.
But you must seek My voice and listen. Cut out some of that endless noise of media and listen carefully for My voice speaking to your heart. Remember I spoke to Elijah in a small, still voice. I never yell or scream.
Child, this is your word for today. “Listen, trust, and obey.” Focus on that. Then watch and see what I will do. And let go of your performance-based love, both for yourself and others.
Yes Sir. Help my unbelief. Increase my faith, especially my faith in You. And help me to let go of my performance-based love, both of myself and others too.

Lord, does my overeating take away the power of my prayers?
No, My child. It takes away the power of your faith in your prayers.
That’s why Satan works so hard to keep you defeated and ashamed. Because it damages your faith, which in turn, takes away the power of your prayers.
I see. Lord, I never knew.
Child, without faith you have no power. Instead you’re defeated and ashamed. That’s why Satan works so hard at tempting My children. His goal is to destroy the power of their faith.
So be strong, My child.
(Accuser: Yes, people all over the world are struggling for life and you’re defeated by pleasure food. What a weak, wimpy Christian you are. You’ll never be strong. Because you can’t resist your pleasure foods.)
My Child, don’t listen to the Accuser. For I am your strength and I am your power. And you can do all things through My power. Because I am your strength and I will strengthen you.
This whole week you’ve allowed Satan to defeat you. But today is the day you will celebrate My victory, the victory I have already planned for you.
Therefore as you yield yourself to Me and walk in My strength, you’ll find new strength. Today, you will have a rebirth of My strength and My power within you.
So declare today a day of victory. I say it again, “Declare today a day of victory.”
For victory is Mine, saith the Lord. Yes, I’ll say it again, “Victory is Mine.”
Therefore be strong My child and walk in the victory I have already planned for you.
Yes Lord, I declare today is a new day of victory.
Today focus on My Presence. Focus on worship. So sing over your victory, for I sing over you.
As you seek My will and My guidance for each day, I will lead you. After all, I have your victory in My hand. And I will infuse you with My strength and My power to resist temptation.
In fact, I infuse you with My power as you yield yourself to Me.
So be strong, My child. For I am celebrating your victory now.
