Resolve to Renew Your Mind

By Tiffany Bretana
My nephew has gotten into rock collecting. He would pick them up anywhere he could, the school play yard, beach, and anywhere he could. His grandparents bought him for Christmas a rock tumbling machine that would take a rough jagged stone and smooth and polish it out. 

How many of us are walking around as rough jagged stones? If someone should rub us the wrong way, are they liable to be cut by someone else with their jagged, rough edges?  

Then when I started think upon it …… the rock tumbling machine………that uses abrasion by its constant tumbling and water to make the rough rock smooth. 

How many of us when we were born again, were still pretty rough in nature, unrefined to our new spiritual nature in Christ? 

The water, the water of the word and the abrasion of our flesh and our spiritual state against one another, is a process, that causes the smoothing out of our jagged rough edges. 

The renewing of our minds is a must if we don’t want to retain the rough jagged edges of our fallen, old sinful nature.  

Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world any longer with its superficial values and customs, but be transformed and progressively changed as you mature spiritually by the renewing of your mind focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes, so that you may prove for yourselves what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect in His plan and purpose for you. 

We have been made a new creation in Christ Jesus. 

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior, he is a new creature reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit; the old things the previous moral and spiritual condition have passed away. Behold, new things have come because spiritual awakening brings a new life. 

Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he in behavior—one who manipulates. 

John 6:63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh conveys no benefit it is of no account. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and life providing eternal life. 

Let the Word of God change your thinking as you let it tumble off the rough jagged edges, as correct thinking leads to right living in Him.

Don’t Dare Ask for What You Deserve

By Tiffany Bretana

I hear the Lord say, tell My people to not dare ask for what you deserve, NOR shall you say I deserve this, this is a result of what I have done (for good or for bad).

The Lord says, ask for what you don’t deserve (MERCY) and unmerited favor (GRACE) in every situation you meet yourself in.

Hebrews 4:16 Therefore let us with privilege approach the throne of grace that is, the throne of God’s gracious favor with confidence and without fear, so that we may receive mercy for our failures and find His amazing grace to help in time of need an appropriate blessing, coming just at the right moment.

I am the Lord thy God, great and mighty to save.

Ask My friend Abraham, who lied about Sarah as being his sister to Abimelech, which led him in predicament, and yet I gave him favor with the king and prevented the king from sinning against Me (Genesis 20).

You being from the Seed of Abraham, will I not do the same for you as I have done for Isaac, Abraham’s son? (Genesis 26) Are you not the the spiritual seed of Abraham, the father of faith?

Romans 4:16-22 Therefore, inheriting the promise depends entirely on faith that is, confident trust in the unseen God, in order that it may be given as an act of grace His unmerited favor and mercy, so that the promise will be legally guaranteed to all the descendants of Abraham—not only for those Jewish believers who keep the Law, but also for those Gentile believers who share the faith of Abraham, who is the spiritual father of us all— as it is written in Scripture, “I have made you a father of many nations” in the sight of Him in whom he believed, that is, God who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist. In hope against hope Abraham believed that he would become a father of many nations, as he had been promised by God: “So numberless shall your descendants be.” Without becoming weak in faith he considered his own body, now as good as dead for producing children since he was about a hundred years old, and he considered the deadness of Sarah’s womb. But he did not doubt or waver in unbelief concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and empowered by faith, giving glory to God, being fully convinced that God had the power to do what He had promised. Therefore his faith was credited to him as righteousness right standing with God.

Under Construction

By: Maili Super

For the last 4 years the Community I have worked at has been under construction. As I have been going through this process the Lord has been teaching me. There was dust and dirt people busting out walls and rebuilding the sounds or saw and hammers all through the day. As I would walk into a building that was completely gutted with only the foundation walls still standing the Lord would tell me “can you see the damage behind the walls and the foundation with boards or sheet rock over them?” I would answer back with No you can’t, He said “exactly you must take off what is over top hiding the damage beneath the surface.”

I feel the same is true for the body we have been Under Construction for a LONG time now. This is a dirty, filthy, and sometimes even smelly place to be. Just as when we open those closets of our life, these are the places that have been shut for so very long, sealed off never to be opened to that pain again. When they are finally opened and the dust settles we find a big mess that we and the Lord must sort through the pain and the senseless of some of the old hurts. The Lord is telling us that, with your Yes He will open the door and get rid of this garbage, like it never even happened. He will sort through the pain and the root of the problem repairing the very foundation of who we are so that when He starts building other things on top of that foundation the walls do not crumble on top of itself.

Matthew 12:25

“But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.”

You are MY Mouthpiece

By: Maili Super

Child you are a mouthpiece this is the whole reason your enemy has tried to quiet your voice so often. My Prophets are all my mouth pieces, I will speak into them and they voice what they hear to the world. This is the real reason that he has tried to silence you, to hold you back and to shut you down. You hear me much clearer than you think you do, trust me, much better than most of the world hears My Voice. You also have great discernment, even though the enemy has stood back in his corner and shouted at you that you did not feel what you KNEW you felt. A prophet is often times the first one that will see a snake in the room, and the others will laugh claiming there is, no snake. I have given you such a sensitive spirit that you know and can sense changes in the environment and in the air. Even if you do not know exactly what you are feeling or why you are feeling it. You can feel the vibrations deep within the ground bubbling up to the surface like a spring of water coming up from the ground. Child You are Mine, I built you a little differently, you stand alone at times, and at times you feel very lonely. Most of my prophets go through this wilderness walk, for it draws them closer to My side. Do not fear what lies ahead for I will take you by the hand and lead you through this dark place and you will learn the pure dependence on me that comes from this walk. I have great plans for you, beyond what you can imagine. Trust me in this process for it is a time to grow and to move up in spiritual levels, I am taking you higher than your dreams can carry you.

Find the Gold in Your Neighbor

Written by Annie Borger (An Omi)


The desire of God’s heart is not to condemn you, It is always to restore you!

Anyone can find the dirt in someone else. Be the one that finds the gold.

Today, I tell you my beloved that compassion will cure more sins than condemning your neighbor. Didn’t I tell you to “Love your neighbor as yourself”?  Love does no wrong to a neighbor, therefore Love is the fulfillment of the Law.

Do NOTHING out of selfish ambition or conceit but in humility, count others more significant than yourself.

Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these you did for Me.

Romans 8:38-39 (NIV)
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor
demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

References Prov. 11:27, Mark 12:31, Phil. 2:3, Rom 13:10, and Matt. 25:40

My Storehouse Door is Open

By Maili Super

Child I have your situation in the palm of my hand, and nothing is too hard for me. I hear the Lord saying to you I love you for the person that you have become, you have given me the ashes you hold and I am pressing them together, so hard they are going to form a diamond that I freely give back to you. Child I will take your mistakes, pain and trials and I will make them into perfect peace that surpasses all understanding. I am the Daddy that has never left or abandoned you, not even when you walked in the sin of the world. I patiently waited speaking sweetness to your heart to heal you of all that you have been made to walk through. Even this day you are waiting for the manifestations of the promises that I have placed into your heart. I tell you I am painting a canvass of your life, all of the brilliant colors shining through. I Will complete every good work I have set out to in your life. I love to give Good gifts to my children, just to see their faces glow with joy. To look up to me and to give me the thanks for the great things that I have promised to them, manifested. To show them a way around, over, or across those valley’s that looks impassable. The doors to My storehouses are open, make your petition, I will meet you there in your place of need. I will give to you the strength that you need to hold all of the blessing that are about to befall you. You have said YES to me in your darkest hours child, even when you did not understand what I was doing. For your faithfulness in this, I will bless you with the provision that you have so desired. Oh but not just what you have asked for and desired but to overflowing capacity.

Proverbs 3:10
10 So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine.

Your Victory in GOD

Written by Annie Borger (An Omi)

Father says: I will give you rest my beloved when you are too tired to go on.

I will make all things possible even when you think it is not!

I will direct your steps in life when you cannot think where to begin.

Do not say, nobody loves me, I love you more than you can ever imagine.

I forgive you, when you say I cannot even forgive myself.

Do not say you are not worthy and not wise enough for the task I laid before you! You are worthy and I will give you the Strength and Wisdom needed.

You are able, My Grace is sufficient for you to do All things.

You’ll manage and will succeed because I will supply all you need.

Do not be afraid, I have not given you a spirit of fear.

I will never leave you nor forsake you.

You are my Kingdom daughter, Decree and declare my Word and so shall it Be.

Celebrate your Victory in advance, for with Me, Victory is certain and is yours!

 

Ears To Hear

By Maili Super

Child I have known you since before you were even conceived into this world. I have given you ears to hear Me, even though at times you may mistake this as your own voice. I am the still small voice that tells you which way to walk, and how to walk in it. I have never left you nor turned my back on you even, when you felt utterly alone, these are the times that I held on to you tighter than ever. The times when you walked through the valley of darkness, these were not in vein. I used these times to give you spiritual muscle. To strengthen you and to give you compassion for those hurting. I have used your pain, your fear, and your uncertainty to allow you to realize that I am the God of compassion and comfort. I say blessed are those that hear My words and heed their warnings for these are the ones that prevail through the darkness. You do not have to be in a place of flailing around when you are in the dark, but My perfect peace still calls to you like a beacon of light that will show you the way out.

I have a plan for you a way of escape for all of those things that you are suffering through this very day. I will blow my winds of change over your situation and not even the landscape around you will look the same. In the dead of winter I will cause the flowers to bloom and for the dead to pass away. Just watch, My Love, for I am changing all things new even in this hour. My Love will cover over these dead dry bones, and they shall live once more. Just watch while I resurrect these things that look lifeless, and infuse them with My breath of life.

Watch While I Activate your Hands

By Maili Super

Child, you are a healer this is the reason the enemy has tried to hold you down with infirmity. This is his oldest tactic, he will hold you down in the fear of dealing with infirmity with your own body or in the body of someone close so that you feel bound up. I say reach those hand out and start to touch people anoint their heads with oil. It may not happen the first time every time, but you will see the more that you do this the easier it gets. It will start to break down the bondage that is wrapped up in this infirmity. Little by little step by step you will hold these people in your hand and they will start to heal. Just watch, I will do a mighty work through you and through your hands. Child, start to repent for sins over your blood line and these things will start to fall off as they will have no more hold over you or your family any longer. You will be made whole my Love, I never intended you to be held in the bondage of depression, I am shining my light over areas in your heart that have been injured and wounded and this depression spirit will have NO MORE hold on you. Remember I say you are a chosen vessel a mighty priesthood and a Holy Nation. Hear My battle cry as I roar over you and your family, bringing all into wholeness.
