Child, you have the power of the Holy Spirit within you. Now awaken`, for you have the power to say ‘No’ to temptation, and defeat. You have the power to say ‘Yes’ to overcoming and resisting, to say ‘Yes’ to the victory I have for you. Continue reading You Have The Power
Child, I’m a God of mercy, not a God of performance. Remember, I want your heart, and your love, not your performance. I’m not looking for perfection. Instead, I’m looking for a yielded, love-filled heart.
Child, remember I’m not a performance based God. Rather, I am a loved based God. And I love you just as you are, warts and all. You’re too hard on yourself. Yes, you strive too much, you worry too much, and you self-criticize too much.
Child, just focus on worship and praise. Then all will fall into place as it should, for I am in charge of all things. And I \AM working out all things for your good and My glory.
Trust Me in all things. Then watch and see what I will do. After all, I split the Red Sea for the Israelites to walk through. Do you think the issues in your life are bigger than the Red Sea?
Even when mankind go their own way to do their own thing according to their free will to choose, I still turn things around. I still work out all things for the good of those who love Me.
But Lord, what about those who are tortured and killed because they chose You?
I am with them giving them strength to make it through their hardships. Then I take them home to be with Me. Their rewards are great. In fact their rewards are greater than you can know or imagine. In fact I am with them through it all.
Know this, it is the enemy who comes to kill, steal, and destroy. But I have come to give new life and abundant life. So trust Me.
Everyday there are miracles. Just open your eyes to see them. As you look, you will behold My power working throughout the Earth.
Now quit criticizing yourself so much. Remember, I am not a performance based God. Instead I am a love based God. And My love is greater than you can imagine.

Be strong, My Child.
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.
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.

Spend time with Me, My child.
Here I am, Lord. So what would You like to talk about?
You, My child. I love you.
Oh Lord, I don’t know why. After all, I feel stupid, messed up, and confused. It seems I’m constantly running back and forth in circles.
As a matter of fact, I stay extremely busy. But I’m accomplishing nothing, that is nothing significant.
Lord, I’m so confused. Most of the time, I feel like a failure.
Child, don’t you know I love you as you are. But I’m not going to let you stay this way.
As a matter of fact, I’m going to change you into My victory trophy.
Lord, I don’t feel like a victory trophy. At this time, I feel like I am a failure example.
Child, in My family there are no failures, only lessons not learned yet. And you are learning. In fact, the main thing you’re learning is that I love you unconditionally.
And I will always love you.
Nothing can change that, not even you. So there, My Child, rest in that. Rest in My love.
But Lord, I want to be used by You.
Child, you are and you will be.
Lord, help me keep my focus on You.
Child, don’t worry about goals set by others. Instead, make it your goal to do My will each day to the best of your ability. And I’ll take care of the rest. Trust Me. Spend time with Me.
Yes Sir. Help me keep my focus on Your will, pleasing You in all things, in all ways.
Child, I have you in My hands. I have all My children in My hands holding each one close to My heart.
I enjoy blessing all My people. But it’s Satan’s desire to steal, kill, and destroy. In comparison, it’s My desire to bless, increase, grant a hope and a future, to prosper all of Mine, heal, set free, and deliver.
It’s My plan to bless with increase, restoration, and to grant eternal life to all who seek My love.
Child, it’s your job to trust and obey. So allow Me to guide your every step and your every word. And spend time with Me.
Yes, Lord, thank you for Your mercy and Your love. I don’t deserve it. I never can.
Child, I love you because I want to, not because you deserve it. I love all of Mine because I want to. After all, I willingly gave up My life because I wanted to.
I love all, but I’ll never force My love on anyone. They have to ask Me. They have to invite Me into their hearts.
Oh, if they only knew the depths of My love, the infinity of My love, and the indescribable joys of My love. Then, not only would they ask Me to be in their hearts, they would run to Me in joyful anticipation of My love for them.
But Satan lies and deceives them. He clogs up their ears with his mind blinding spirit. He fills their hearts with false promises of all that glitters, but is not true gold.
My Presence not only opens ears to hear My voice, but it also heals broken hearts and renew minds with limitless possibilities. All things are possible in My Presence.

Today is your “seeking day”. Seek My will and seek My Presence. I know you’ll be talking to others, but focus on talking to Me today, all throughout your day.
Lord, this is such a struggle. It’s an ongoing battle, a major struggle in my life. In fact, it seems I can’t ever win.
Child, victories only come through struggles and battles. There’s never a victory without a battle.
But Lord, it seems like there’s a war inside of me and I can’t ever win.
My Child, you can win, for you are a winner. After all, you are Mine and all of Mine win. Because I always win. Therefore you win.
But Lord, right now I feel like a loser, defeated before all to see, especially myself. I see myself as a loser.
So My child, quit looking at what you see. Now look to Me, so you can see what I see. For you, My Child, are strong and victorious.
But Lord, I start out my day strong. Then by night fall I’m weak and defeated.
Then change My child, change your pattern of life.
How can I? When I wake up, the house is quiet and I can hear Your voice clearly. But in the evening I am tired, the TV is blaring, news is depressing and I fall asleep in my chair. How can I change this pattern?
Child, make today your “Seeking Day”. You’ve been listening to many voices throughout your day. On this “seeking day”, shut off all other voices and settle yourself in. Seek My voice. Seek My Presence and you will have peace. When I am on your side, you are a winner. It is so for I have declared it so.

Know this Child, I’m helping you. I am with you on your side. And I’ll keep you wherever you go. I’ll always bring you back to your personal promise land of victory.
And I’ll not leave you until I have completed all in your life, until I have fulfilled all My promises to you and all My words. In fact, know this, I will never leave you.
Even when you wandered off My chosen path for you, I never left your side. But I always gently guided you back to the path I designed just for you.
Yes, I forgive your failures. But know this, you’re not a failure for you are Mine. In fact, none of Mine are failures for I have determined victory for all of Mine, My victory for each one.
Thank you Lord for Your mercy and Your forgiveness. Thank you for Your promises and Your love, especially Your love.
And thank you Lord, for never giving up on me.
Child, I’ll never give up on you. I never give up on any of Mine. I’ll never give up for I AM the WINNER over all, even you, My child.
Thank you Lord for talking with me this morning.

Lord, I am weak.
Child, let the weak say, “I am strong.”
Lord, I can’t.
Child, you’re right. You can’t. But let the weak say, “I am strong.”
Lord, if I said, “I am strong”, then I’d be lying.
Child, did you invite Me into your heart?
Then let the weak say, “I am strong”. For I Am strong and I Am in your heart. So let the weak say, “I am strong”.
Lord, I don’t know what to do. It seems I’ve failed at all my attempts for victory.
Child, you lost 90 pounds on My eating plan for you. Then you lost 40 pounds on your plan. I don’t call that failure. I call that success.
But let the weak say, “I am strong”. Because of My power within you- you have all the strength you need to defeat this giant of food addiction in your life.
How do you think it looked to little David before the great giant? Let the weak say, “I am strong.”
Lord, I feel as though I am drowning in a sea of junk food.
Child, changing habits is hard. But I am with you.
Lord, I feel like such a wimp. So many are suffering so much. It looks so bad for so many, and here I am whining to You about my food issues.
To the greater need, I provide greater strength and peace. I surround them with My love and My Presence. But I do the same with you as well.
Lord, I feel so stupid and insignificant.
Child, you are important to Me. I have a specific plan for you and your life. In fact I intend to help you fulfill and achieve victory. Yes, I have victory planned for you.
In fact, I have victory planned for each one of Mine. Some have greater victories. Some have smaller victories. But I have victories planned for each one.
Lord, I don’t understand.
Child, it is not necessary that you understand. But it is necessary that you trust Me. Now, let the weak say, “I am strong”.
Alright Lord, I am strong.
Say I Am Strong

Surrender is the key to victory and prosperity.
Child, surrender is the key to victory and prosperity. As you surrender yourself, your heart, your dreams, and your desires I will bless you.
Lord, I don’t know what to write.
Child, I’ll give you the words to speak, but first you must surrender all. You must feed yourself . Before you can help others, you must first feed yourself My Word and My Presence first.
Just as on a plane, the parent should put on their oxygen mask first. Then put the mask on the child next. So feed yourself and take in the breathe of My Holy Spirit.
Take in the breathe of My Holy Spirit, My Presence first, and before all else. Then you can help others.
Feed on My Word and My Presence. Then you will receive power to defeat your enemies, especially your greatest enemy, Satan.
After all, his desire is to keep you defeated and discouraged. So feed on My Word and My Presence, My Holy Spirit, therein you will find power.
Now Child, clean up your own backyard, your eating habits, your heart, and your attitudes. Quit worrying about the future. Take one day at a time, one day.
Make it your goal to seek My will and then follow My will. For what good is it if you ask for advice and then never follow it?
So your focus should be surrender first. Then look to Me for your instructions. Next, follow how I lead you. Surrender is the key to your victory and a successful life of victory.
- Look to Me and listen for instructions.
- Follow, trust, and obey how I lead you.
Your job is not a quota. Your job is surrender. That’s your focus, surrender, the first key to unlock your victory.
Child, keep your eyes on Me and your heart surrendered to me. Let go of all that is in your hand. Then open your hand to receive what I have for you. It’s beyond your expectation. Keep your eyes on Me.
Child, as you surrender to My will (especially your food), I will make you stronger. As you let go, I will increase your strength. Now let go.
Let go of it all and come before Me, completely surrendered and empty of all that clutters your heart, and your mind. Allow Me to fill you with Myself.
Quit wishing for more time and accomplish what I tell you to do, in the time I give you. I will give you all the time you need to accomplish all, all the tasks I assign you.
Seek My will each day. Then watch and see what I will do with your time. I can multiply it.
Your key to success is surrender. So therefore, surrender your self and all you are, all your dreams, desires, and wishes. Surrender your all to Me. Then watch and see what I do.
So quit trying to figure everything out. Just focus on surrender, As you take each step in surrender, I will lead you to your own personal victory.
Child, quit trying on your own. Give it all to Me.
Yes sir. Lord, take it. Take me. I give myself to thee. Do with me as your wish.
Child, do not fear for I am with you
Surrender is the Key
Look to the Lord and His strength, seek His face always. Psalms 105:4

Listen for My voice, seek My guidance. Remember at times, My voice at times is a still, quiet voice. Listen for My voice, Child. Even though there is much noise around, you can still listen. If you focus, listen, trust, and obey, then I’ll lead you to your victory.
I will never give up on you or the victory I have planned for you. So you never give up, My child, for I have great plans coming forth, plans for your victory.
Oh Lord! Thank you, but at times I put my face down in the feeding trough. Am I stupid?
No, My child. . . .just. . .
What Lord? What am I then? Is it Your voice I’m hearing? Am I weird?
No, My child, just backslidden into your old ways.
Lord, I’m in a trap of my own making. How can I stop this binge eating? I do good for several days, then I return to the slop jar over and over. How can I stop?
Child, come to Me before eating anything. Drink your water and come to Me.
Lord, will I ever stop?
Yes, when you start coming to Me.
Lord, I thought I heard You correctly when I ordered this program.
You did hear Me correctly. But when you’re into our food pleasure, your ears are closed due to your will to overeat.
Lord, is there any hope for me? It seems I have no self-control at all.
Child, I am your hope. And I intend to make you strong.
