I Am Your Deliverer
My Child, look to Me. For I am your Deliverer
Lord, I was stupid. Yes, I was stupid. Yesterday I ate it all and more, I remember a time when I could just eat small amounts and be satisfied.
But now Lord, I don’t know what to do anymore.
My Child, focus on Me. Seek My Presence and I will lead you to your victory.
So Lord, how do I get this extra weight off? Continue reading I Am Your Deliverer
A New Day Of Victory
Today is a new day for you, a new day of victory.
But Lord, I binged last night.
Yes Child, I saw the whole thing. And it made Me sad for you. It makes Me sad when I watch as My children give up and are defeated.
In spite of my failures Lord, I do want to help others.
Then Child, do what you know is right. If you stay true to what you know. Then I will bless you to help others.
Lord, is this food shortage for real?
Yes, My Child. This baby formula was a test. In fact, it is the beginning.
My Lord, can they be defeated?
Yes, Child. I have arranged their defeat, for I will win. Always, I AM the winner.
Lord, am I a fake?
No, My Child. Instead, you are truly a struggler.
So how can I win?
Through My Presence and My power.
But Lord, what can I do? What do You want me to do?
Child, I want you to listen to My words. Especially listen with open ears. Then obey as I lead you.
Also Lord, how can I contribute to help others unless I make more income?
My Child, don’t you know how I helped Jacob and many others during a famine? Do you not think I can help you?
Child, I want your mind clear from all other voices. Because I want to speak to you Myself with My own words of encouragement.
Lord, is my time of success over? Did I let it go?
No My Child, you lost some time. But it’s not over until I say it’s over.
So Lord. what do I do?
Come to Me. Give Me your dreams.
Is it too late for me? Am I too old?
Child, I’m going to turn your life all around. Do you expect blessings to come to you?
Lord, I remember my Dad saying, “Pay your tithes and God will bless you.”
Yes My Child, I am blessing you. I am your sponsor and your coach. And I will lead you and teach you. Hasn’t it always been that way?
I’ve helped you all these years. So come to Me now.
Yes Sir. Lord, what do I do? What do You want me to do?
In spite of what you feel or think, today is a new day for you. It’s a new day of victory.
So Lord, what do I do?
Rejoice for your victory is at hand. In fact I’m turning all things around, even for you too. Today is a new day for you, a new day of victory.
However, victory comes through struggles. So whatever happens, keep your faith. Never give up.
Lord, at times I think I need a more powerful church.
My Child, you are exactly where I put you.

Come and listen to My counsel. I’ll share My heart with you and make you wise. Proverbs 1:23 NLT
In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul. Psalms 138:3 NKJV
Despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us Romans 8:37 NLT
Keep a close watch on all you do and think . Stay true to what is right and God will bless you and use you to help others. 1 Timothy 4:16 TLB
Sidetracked and Distracted
Lord, I got sidetracked and distracted again. Also it seems I pray the same prayers and sing the same songs over and over. Meanwhile, I’m working so hard to get all this “to do” list done. But I can’t seem to finish it. Help me find Your will.
Meanwhile I’ve tried to work this program successfully. But occasionally, I messed up and fell on my face. Sometimes I fell in the feeding trough, only to emerge bloated and defeated. Help me find Your will.
Lord, it seems like it’s been a long time since I was overwhelmed by Your Presence. I’ve left You out, because everything else has me sidetracked and distracted.
Can You help me overcome this confusion and live a victorious life, full of Your Presence with joy and peace? Lord, I have no answers. And it seems I’m always busy, too busy for any joy in my life.
My Child, seek My voice. Seek My Presence for I am your answer. No program can replace My power in your life. But as you come to Me, I will help you. Because it’s always been My intent to give you victory.
Child, I want you totally dependent on Me. Surrender your will and allow Me to guide your every step, your every word, and your every bite. Therein, you will have your victory.
Lord, I have so many dreams, thoughts, and plans. Because I get sidetracked and distracted, none are completed. I just go through my day busy as I can be. So busy, busy all the time. How can I get it all done?
First of all, My Child, focus on Me, seek My voice and seek My will for every moment of your day. Remember when you used to focus on My Presence even when you were in meetings. I was always there by your side. You knew I was with you then.
Your plans are of no avail, just busy work. You’ve been running and running through your life. I’ve been calling on your heart. But you’ve focused more on your “to do” list versus seeking My Presence.
Oh Lord, please forgive me. In the evenings, exhaustion comes. Then I forget Your words of victory. So it’s easy to slip into my old habits of snacking until I fall asleep in my chair.
Child, know I am with you. I will lead you as you surrender to Me your life and your will. As you seek Me, I will lead you one day at a time, one moment at a time. When you are weak and tired, go to bed. Before you close your eyes, praise Me for your victories.
My Child, My plans for you are victory. They are not for your busyness. In fact, it is in your returning and resting in My Presence that will bring your victory over all.

God of Mercy
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.
Open Your Eyes
Just open your eyes to what I AM doing. As you look, you’ll behold My power working throughout Earth.
Remember when that child laid his hand on your shoulder to pray for you? That was one of My miracles. Consider how I moved- a young child praying at the altar for a grandmother who was praying for her grandchildren. Now that, My child, is a miracle. Two hearts of different generations praying for each other at the altar. That is a miracle indeed.
Now this day open your eyes and look for My miracles and My Presence working in different lives. And thank Me for each victory you see. Expect many victories coming forth for I will have My way and I always win. I AM the winner over and above all. Now watch and see what I will do.
Much is coming forth, miracles, signs, wonders, and revelations of the truth. In fact, I will recognized as the winner over all others. My kingdom will come and My “Will” will be done on Earth as in Heaven. So watch and see what I will do. If you open your eyes, you will see My miracles everywhere you look.
Yes Sir. Thank you Lord. Help me to praise You all throughout my life. Thank you for talking to me to encourage me when I get overwhelmed by all the news.
How many times, My child, do I have to remind you, “Don’t look at what you see, especially in your so-called news. But instead, look to Me. Keep your eyes looking to Me.”
Yes Sir. Thank you for reminding me. I love You.
I love you too, My child. In fact, I love all of My children.
OPEN YOUR EYES AND PRAY:
Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven’
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
Matthews 6:9-13 NKJV
Not Performance Based God
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?
Then trust Me. Thank Me for what you see that I am doing. Also thank Me for what you don’t see I am doing for I AM working out all things for the good according to My will.
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
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.
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.

I See You As Beautiful, Child
I see you as beautiful, Child, for you are My creation and everything I create is beautiful. Remember, after I created earth and all that was in it, I looked at what I created and said, “It is good”.
But Lord, I don’t like what I see when I look in the mirror, both the physical mirror and the spiritual mirror.
Know this, My Child, I see “all” of who you are. And I love you without condition. For I am not a performance-based God. You do not earn My love, for I freely give it to all who will receive it.
It was sin that brought ugliness and dirty to My creation. And it’s the sin in your life that causes you not to like what you see as you look at yourself.
But it will be My Presence within you that’ll make you beautiful, both to others and yourself. And it’s My Presence within you is what makes you especially beautiful to Me.
When I see you full of My Presence, I see you as gloriously beautiful.
Oh Lord, I do want to be beautiful to You.
Then My Child, allow Me to fill you with My Presence and all that is ugly will disappear. Even your wrinkles will be evidence of laughter and wisdom.
Lord, I want You. And I want Your will in all I do, say, and especially what I think. Renew my mind. At times that’s the ugliest part of me. Sometimes my thoughts of evilness shock even me.
In fact, it’s in my mind where I fight and struggle the most. Renew my mind Lord. Change me and make me onto the person You want me to be.
Here I am, I give myself to thee. Do with me as You wish.
Child, I love you and I see you as beautiful, not ugly. Always remember I love you. No matter what, I love you. I gave My life blood for you because I love you.
Oh Lord, help me to love You as I should. Help me to please You in all my ways.
Child, remember I am not a performance-based God. In fact, I am a God of love. And it’s My love for you that will clean you up and make you pure, with a clean heart and a clean mind.
Sometimes that process of cleansing is uncomfortable and not easy. But you’ll come through it all victorious. After all, that’s My plan for you- Victory.
In fact, that is My plan for each and every one of Mine. Victory is Mine, saith the Lord.
Seek My guidance and seek My voice. Seek My love and wisdom above all else and you’ll never go wrong as you yield and surrender yourself to My will in all things.
Lord, help me.
My Child, I am helping you.

Seek My Answers, Child
Seek My answers, Child.
Lord, I know You’re the answer to all.
But Child, you do not seek My answers.
Lord, I thought I did. I’m so confused.
Child, listen to Me.
So Lord, what do I do?
To begin with Child, seek My Presence first. Then listen as I speak to your heart. Seek My answers to all your questions. Also spend time reading My Word, for you will find many answers there as well. Continue reading Seek My Answers, Child
