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.

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.

Child, I want you to become a “salt of the earth”.
Lord, show me how. What can I do?
Child, to begin with start talking to Me more. Talk with Me more about your prayer list, more, about your “to do” list, and more than you talk to anyone else.
Talk with Me about your life, your dreams, your desires, and your struggles. By the way, I gave you those dreams. Now come to Me and I will give you strength.
I will lead you. I will guide you. Seek My will in all things, all your ways, and I will direct your steps to your personal victory. The one I created just for you.
Yes Sir. Lord, I want you and I want to do your will. Forgive me for getting so caught up in fear. But Lord, what about those who aren’t prepared?
Child, I am their supply. After all, I fed 5,000 and took up 12 baskets of leftovers. So trust Me and eat according to My will for you.
Then praise Me for I am your endless supply and don’t be afraid. Don’t worry. Buy as I lead you. Pray in the grocery store. Pray and seek My advice. Seek My will over everything you buy.
And Child, you need to return back to the basics of how I led you to eat. Keep you heart in submission to Me. Begin by eating in obedience to My instructions for you. Let go of the unnecessary food.
Remember, My children are the salt of the earth.

Lord, I think this gluttony monster comes to my house every evening. And when the compulsion from this monster hits, I don’t even stop to think. It consumes me.
I need more discipline, consistency, strength, and the power to say ‘No’ to this food obsession, this gluttony monster. I can’t change myself because I am powerless over myself.
But My Child, I have all the power you need.
Lord, My day starts out so good. I eat appropriate and sufficient. But then after supper, here comes this gluttony monster to consume my health.
Yes Child, I see it all. My heart hurts for you. And I long to set you free. It is My will to set you free.
So Lord, what can I do? I know You said to semi-fast for 40 days. But ever since that day, I’ve been invaded by this overwhelming compulsive to overeat. In fact, I’ve been eating like crazy.
I know You said, ‘Come to You’. But I haven’t stopped eating long enough to ‘come’ to You. Lord, I don’t know what to do.
I want to please You. I want to love You as I should. But here I am, all messed up.
I can pray words, “Create in me a clean heart and renew a steadfast spirit”. But they are only words, just words, unless I change.
Child, I have watched you and I’ve been waiting for you even as you fell. But I’m always waiting to catch you. I will help you, for I have the power.
You will win over this addiction, over this gluttony monster. You will defeat this compulsion for I created you to be a victor. I created you for victory.
So Lord, what do I do?
Pray without ceasing. Every hour of every day come to Me. Check it off your time schedule if you must. But you must come to Me.
Lord, I do want You to create in me a clean heart. And I long for a steadfast spirit before You. Fill me with Your sweet Presence daily and forevermore.
Child, I intend to. You will win over this compulsive gluttony monster. For I am THE WINNER and I created you to be a winner too. Therefore expect victory.
Expect victory. You will have your victory for I have already designed it. I am holding it in My hand. And you are a winner. You will win.
It may look like defeat to you. But when I look at you, I see a winner. You are Mine. You are a winner for I have already declared it so.
Now get up and wash your face. Go forth today marching in your victory
Thank you Lord for not giving up on me.
Child, I never give up on any of My children.

Child, you chose another. But you could have had My Presence last night. My child, I want you. Choose Me.
I’ve called you to a higher purpose other than to listen to others and eat your treats.
You could have had Me, but instead you chose another.
Oh Lord, I feel like such a failure.
Child, you’re learning with new learning everyday and I want to teach you. It’s not your “to do” list. It’s not the voice of others . But it is I who will take you into your victory.
Victory is not getting it all done. Victory IS My Presence. I gave you a way out when your friend called. But you ate your snack afterwards.
Child, when you’re looking in the refrigerator or the cabinet for something to eat, what you’re really craving is My Presence.
You could’ve come to Me. But you chose another.
Oh Lord, I’m so messed up.
Child, come to Me and I will heal you. I’ll heal you both inside and out. It’s the inside of you, your spirit that determines your behavior and your actions.
Lord, help me.
Child, your mind is on too many different things. And you have much confusion, anxiety, fear, and busywork. You strive to get it all done. The highest call you have is stay in My Presence. That’s your highest calling, not your job, not your housework, and not your hobbies.
Instead, I’m your highest calling. Your attention is on too many different things. I want your focus on My Presence. Seek Me and I will supply for all your needs. You stress unnecessarily over many things.
Child, as long as you have My Presence, you’ll have My peace. Have no worries for I’m holding you in My hands. . . And as is My will. . . It will be done.
Remember back when you used to snatch times, different times in your day to talk to Me? Do that again. Do it again.
You need Me. You need My Presence to direct you. Satan desires to destroy your future and the influence you have on others. But I will overcome. Now come to Me to a higher place of victory.
No longer walk in defeat for I have plans for you a hope and a future, not to harm you, but to prosper you.
