We are living in desperate days, as the world thrusts powerlessness and hopelessness on us, enslaving us to live an ineffective life. But God is mighty and He is moving across the earth right now listening for those who will call out to Him in a Spirit of humility and repentance. God's presence has power that will impact our life, changing us not just for the moment but for eternity. God's presence cannot be duplicated by man and it will insulate us from the chaos of this world. God's presence will empower us to stand on high ground in the Spirit realm, seeing circumstances through the eyes of the spirit and not in the natural. When God displays his presence within us, all things take order in our life, prioritized according to God and not the ways of man. Let us live in the presence of our God.
highway to holiness
We each are on a journey in this life as though traveling on a highway. Each one of our decisions direct us on this highway that ultimately leads us to our final destination, eternity. We need to choose wisely as each decision really does matter. Our most important decision is, what will we do with Jesus. Eternity, Eternity.....where will you spend eternity and what will you do with Jesus! Travel Wisely!

When we "encounter" the power of God and who He is we will never be the same. We can have many different "experiences" that are spiritual, but they leave us only wanting more "experiences". As we "encounter" God it plants within us the power and the knowledge of who our God truly is, and we can't help but be humbled in His Presence as we are met with the understanding that we needful of Him, and we are a sinner saved by grace. "Encounters" with Him embed within our hearts an overwhelming pursuance to have Him change us from within, removing those things from us that does not bring honor to Him. "Encounters" with God humble us, change us and place within us a desire to only want to do the will of the Father. "Encounters" with the Father are deep calling unto deep, while "experiences" are shallow and fleeting....we need "encounters" that impact our spirit and change our prayers from an earthly level of materialism to a level in the Spirit, seeking God for who He is and not just for His gifts

“Abundance from above will flow upon My children in this hour. I have an abundance of health, provision, joy, peace, and an abundance of My Spirit and Power to deliver those that are oppressed and bound by the things of this world. I am Great and Mighty there is none like Me so establish your Spirit upon Me and I will flood you with a wealth of My Spirit that will satisfy your every longing. Do you hear My voice calling out to you….as you listen for Me I am speaking the things that I have for you to accomplish in this hour. And you will need an abundance of My Spirit to complete the assignments that I have for you. Don’t delay but make it a necessary part of your day to seek after Me as if your very life depends on it…because it does!”

Samson’s life is a great example of how we also live our lives, which is imperfect. Not that we desire to be this way, but Samson like us, was self-centered, lived by emotion, he made bad decisions, and developed relationships with disloyal people. God didn't hold Samson’s imperfect and negative qualities against him. But even in his messed up life, Samson still had access to the Power of God to do remarkable and unimaginable things. Samson’s poor decisions did affect him-self and impact his own life. But, we see God was still working His plan even at the time of Samson’s greatest loss of both his eyesight and his freedom. During his darkest days, God hadn’t forgotten him, but was preparing Samson for the main event which resulted in God using Samson to accomplish more in those final moments of his life than his life in its entirety. What great news for us, as we realize that even when our life is a mess and it appears to be a complete opposite as to what we think the plan should look like; God is greater than our emotions, our relationships and our darkest hour. God wants to breathe His strength into us and work in mighty ways to accomplish His plan for our life. Don’t give in to the voice of regrets, insignificance or the voice that tries to chain us to the cross to earn perfection or our place with Christ. God wants to take the Samsons of this world with our messed up and imperfect lives to powerfully be used of God.

“Don’t despair I am working all things for your good. I have never left you or abandon you. This is a season of leaning on Me and I will show Myself to be great. I am filling you this very moment with the strength and power of My words. I am more than enough for you. I have not asked you to do something that I will not equip within you to complete. I am watching over you and directing your every step. You will not miss the things that I have for you to do in these last days. But you are advancing even now into a new realm in My presence that will empower you to do greater things. Don’t allow these thoughts to become words and say, "My God has forgotten me". Because I am directing you to speak "truth" and the truth is I have never left you. My eyes are always watching you. I have every hair on your head numbered. So no, I have not forgotten you. I love you and I will complete all the things I have spoken to you. Rejoice!!!!” Says the Spirit of the Lord.
