Resting in the Lord

By Maili Super

Most of us are in a place of striving where we can’t yet see the light at the end of the tunnel. The Lord has given us Big promises that we have stood on and fight in the spirit with, But yet still there is nothing yet tangible for us to hold onto. As I was praying this morning for strength and courage to push forward in the face of what looks sometimes like defeat and the Lord reminded me this is January. This is the month the Lord has been highlighting as a time of the “New” springing forth seemingly out of the Blue. The Lord is reminding us that in many cases we will not see these thing coming towards us, but that one day we will wake up and things will start happening. We are restless because we feel as though we have been ensnared so we start fighting and striving, not realizing that we are being held in place by the Lord so that we can rest as we grow. Just as a teenager can sleep all day, and because of the fast rate they are growing. They are also very clumsy because they have not grown into their new bodies. This is an example of what we are doing spiritually the Lord is working hard behind the scenes to grow us and to raise us into the people that He can use to touch others in the kingdom. This is a time of rest so that our mind can catch up to the growth of the spirit. Sometimes when the Lord gives you a new gift or is growing you. It is then you become a little more clumsy, and fumble around looking for some sort of grounding. This is only until you get your coordination back and are now taller and stronger than before. Know that if you are anchored in the Lord you will not drift far before the anchor catches you and pulls you back. You are not drifting aimlessly, the Lord will pull that chain and you will be right back in his presents.

Which Tree Are You Eating From? Part 2

By Tiffany Bretana 

Yesterday, In part 1, we see that there were two very different covenants. And accordingly it’s important to distinguish which tree, covenant, and testament we are eating from and sitting under. In 2 Timothy 1:12, Peter admonishes us to be established in the present truth. According to John 5:24, Jesus tells us that, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. 2 Corinthians 3:6, states that God has made us qualified us making us sufficient as ministers of a new covenant of salvation through Christ, not of the letter of a written code but of the Spirit; for the letter of the Law kills by revealing sin and demanding obedience, but the Spirit gives life. In Matthew 5:17-18, Jesus tells us He did not come to abolish the Law but to fulfill it. Jesus fulfilled the Law because He was the sinless Son of God, Who would be the spotless Lamb of God, Who takes the sin of the world away. We also know by Galatians 3:24 that the Law was a tutor to bring us to Christ. I believe that there is still a purpose in the Law, as such as it was in times past, to be a tutor to those who have not been born again to come to the end of themselves by recognizing that we of ourselves could do nothing, leading us to Christ. In Colossians 2:14, it states that Jesus wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 

So in conclusion, it is vital for the believer to know which tree they are eating from. Jesus stated in John 14:6, I am the way, the truth, and the life. God doesn’t want us to mix the two covenants together, as Jesus stated in Mark 2:21-22 and Mathew 9:16-17,

Mark 2:21-22 No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; or else the new piece pulls away from the old, and the tear is made worse. And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins.” 


Matthew 9:16-17 No one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for the patch pulls away from the garment, and the tear is made worse. Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”

Through this journey through the Word, I had come to a personal realization, it is by God loving us first, that we love God and others, and fulfill the law of love, as it is written in 2 Corinthians 5:14-15 For the love of Christ controls and compels us, because we have concluded this, that One died for all, therefore all died; and He died for all, so that all those who live would no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and was raised for their sake. We could not do anything in and of ourselves as Jesus said. It is by His Holy Spirit where we renew our minds and live by the Spirit that gives life to selfless love to the higher law of love, which is the fulfillment of the commandments. It was by realizing that God loved me so much to send Jesus for me, forgive me, and love me unconditionally, that I could love and forgive others in turn.

Repairing our Foundation

By Maili Super

Today, when I was praying I saw swords colliding. A real good versus evil, type of fight. The warrior of God and the enemies swords collided and the blade of the warrior was sheered off at the base. The Lord was showing me that this sword that he was carrying was full of flaws and impurities, therefore there was a deep structural crack in this sword.

The Lord then compared this to the foundation of a house. How the foundation of our lives MUST be in alignment without flaws for the walls to stand sturdy and strong. That the corners must meet in a perfect 90 degree angle, so that everything will be in perfect alignment. He showed me that if the foundation has structural issues that the walls will continually crack and allow water to penetrate the very structure of the building, thus causing dry rot.

The Lord was showing me this is why we have been in the fire so very long. He is fortifying us, correcting flaws and lies that have formed the very foundations of our being. These lies that the enemy has been telling us for most of lives about our identities, callings, ministries, and who we are to the Lord are being burnt away in the FIRE of His love. He is not only building a weapon for us but making us into weapons ourselves. These lies melting off of us in the light of HIS Love. The radiance of HIS countenance shining through our faces and eyes burning with HIS determination. The Lord is NOT done with us yet, in His Great Love for us He will not leave one stone out of place. He is the master builder and He said take dominion over the land and all that is in it and subdue it. He is causing us to think like Him and act the way He does, there for what we see the Lord do we are capable of doing as well. Being made into a fortified city, we will send the enemy into flight, just as we saw from Jesus.

Matthew 21:42

Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.

Nehemiah 4:16-18

From that day on, half of my servants carried on the work while half of them held the spears, the shields, the bows and the breastplates; and the captains were behind the whole house of Judah. Those who were rebuilding the wall and those who carried burdens took their load with one hand doing the work and the other holding a weapon. As for the builders, each wore his sword girded at his side as he built, while the trumpeter stood near me.

Which Tree Are You Eating from? Part 1

By Tiffany Bretana

Several years ago, I was crying out to God, “Abba Father, I can’t keep all the ten commandments as much as I try my best!” I was born again and I was desperate and felt so defeated. I felt as Paul penned in Romans 7:15, For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. Then I heard the Father say, “That is why I gave you My Son”. That sent me on a journey to search out what Jesus accomplished on the cross at Calvary.

While reading the Bible one day, God opened up to me that the two trees in Genesis 2:9 represented the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (the Law) and the tree of life (Grace and Truth). In verse 16-17, LORD God commanded the man, saying, “You may freely (unconditionally) eat [the fruit] from every tree of the garden; but [only] from the tree of the knowledge (recognition) of good and evil you shall not eat, otherwise on the day that you eat from it, you shall most certainly die [because of your disobedience].” The Bible uses many typologies and symbols to represent many things. In this instance, trees are symbolized as men. We see this in Mark 8:24, after Jesus spat into the blind man’s eyes and laid hands on him, the blind man opened his eyes. The blind man stated, “I see people, but [they look] like trees, walking around.” And also in Isaiah 61:3, “So they will be called trees of righteousness”. 

And we also see that in the Bible, men, women, and mountains were symbolic of covenants as well. John 1:17 states, “For the Law was given through Moses, but grace [the unearned, undeserved favor of God] and truth came through Jesus Christ“. One being, the Law (the Old Covenant), the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and the other being Grace and Truth (the New Covenant), the tree of Life. But God, had to deal with man according to which tree, Adam and Eve had eaten from. Another example of such, is the example of Hagar and Sarah. In Galatians 4:21-31, we read that these two women represented the two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar— for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children— but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.

For it is written: “Rejoice, O barren,You who do not bear! Break forth and shout,You who are not in labor! For the desolate has many more children than she who has a husband.” Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise. But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now. Nevertheless what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the free woman.” So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman but of the free. 

How many of us still are living under the old (Law), not realizing we are under the new (Grace & Truth)? 

The Lord is your Shield

By Maili Super

Child, you may not know all of the plans I have for you, but I have you at the center of my will. Just as not a feather falls from a sparrow without me knowing, child I know the troubles that come against you. I have every hair on your head numbered, how much more important are the trials that you go through in this life. If they are important to you than these things are much more important to me. Do not fear My Love, I have held you safely in my hand your entire life. I have a plan for you a way of escape for even the things you deal with in this hour. By one word spoken from my mouth, you will be delivered from those things that have plagued you, rest in me child I will provide the way of escape and the way to your destiny. I will give you a plan and a path to walk on this path may look different than you expected but hold tight to me and I will show you the way. I will light the path for you so you will never get lost, when you are weak and weary I will carry you, because I love you and your are MINE. Look at me and do not look to the left or to the right for if you do you will get distracted and drift off course. The world and its desires will tug on you hard to get to you fall off track, BUT I will deliver you from ALL of it. I will highlight the areas I want you to walk and I will remove those that take you off the course that I have designed for you to walk on. Do not fear for I will never loose my grip on you and allow you to fall. Your life is safe in the safety of my wings from the storms that rage around you.

Psalm 91:4  He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

Forged in Fire

By Maili Super

The other day, the Lord reminded me of a new show called Forged in Fire. The show is about ancient weapon making, and shows you the steps that a blacksmith goes through in designing and creating these weapons. These blacksmiths forge the iron in the fire as many times as needed to heat the metal up to be soft so that they can beat the weapon into the desired shape, length, and sharpness needed. This is a very time consuming process and because of the heat from the fire the iron releases the impurities that would cause it to be weak or fail. After the shaping of the metal, the weapon is cooled quickly in a quencher. The metal is so hot when it is cooled that there is potential to crack and fail, but it also hardens the iron fortifying its shape. Then comes the sharpening the blade is placed on a grinding wheel and there the metal is thinned out into a razor sharp point. If the impurities are not removed during the firing process then during sharpening there is a potential for the metal to crack, therefore rendering the weapon unusable or unstable to be used.

The Lord is telling me that we are purified in much the same way. We are the chosen weapon that the Lord uses against the enemy. He must heat us up with the Holy Spirit loosening and removing the impurities in our lives. Bitterness, Pride, Lust, Unforgiveness, Hurts, and Envy among other things are removed from our hearts and lives so that He can effectively use us. There is an expression “hurting people, hurt people,” this is the reason the Lord can’t use us in this condition. We become hard in the wrong way when we carry these things, more like brittle where we can injure others or even break ourselves like a sword that is not forged properly.

The Bible itself is called a two edged sword, so therefore we are used as weapons against the ENEMY, not against one another. The Lord was telling me that many believers have already had the forging part done, now for the sharpening. The Lord is coming to sharpen our discernment, our gifts, and our understanding of how we are to be used. The Lord told me that even a sword that is not sharpened is still a weapon and it can still do some damage against our Enemy, but it is harder to use and takes much more effort to cut through something with a dull blade. Have you ever tried to cut a steak with a dull blade? It will cut, but your hand is very tired at the end of it, and there is also potential that we cut ourselves in the process because we are fighting to control the blade. The Lord is sharpening us so that we can do all that He requires that we do. The Lord has many of us on the grinding wheel, so that when we have pin point accuracy, with ease, without cutting ourselves or others in the process. Then the weapon is tested once passing all of the other tests along the way, for sharpness, strength, and ease of usage.

The more that we submit ourselves to doing what He needs to do to remove the impurities, the quicker the process, and the less fire that we must endure. The process is very extensive and lengthy, but the Lord will not miss one detail that needs to be corrected. Not one stone uncovered and we will be made into the weapon of His choosing, by HIS design and we will be made into defenders of the weak. By his Pure Love for us He shapes and designs us and causes us to be made pure and whole in His Fire!

Thank you Jesus for your all consuming Fire that purifies us.

Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Don’t Despise the Little Ones

By Tiffany Bretana

I have noticed amongst the body, that people will make comments in regards to one’s post, almost to the assumption that everyone is at the same level of revelation, maturity, deliverance, and understanding as to themselves. Let it not be so! When the Holy Spirit releases a word through a vessel, it is not always meant for everyone. The Holy Spirit quickens the word to its intended hearers. 

For those who feel that they have fulfilled the command of studying to show themselves approved by God, the area you have become well versed in, just maybe the area the Lord would have you to edify, build up, teach those entering in daily, as we all are also preparing for an end time harvest. For those who have received much revelation, it was not meant to be used as a dividing line or a way of reducing those who have yet to acquire or attain such blessed revelations.  

2 Timothy 2:15 Study and do your best to present yourself to God approved, a workman tested by trial who has no reason to be ashamed, accurately handling and skillfully teaching the word of truth. 

I remember when I was crying out to God, I don’t understand what I’m reading in Your Word. Please teach and quicken it to me. That did not upset God, but it pleased him. I soon realized He was quickening things to me in an accelerated rate. You see, I was criticized because I didn’t understand or took something too literal in the Word. I apologized and repented of it. But the Lord vindicated me in it as well. He won’t leave you, me, or the new babe in Christ there. 

Matthew 21:42 Jesus asked them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: ‘The very Stone which the builders rejected and threw away, Has become the chief Cornerstone; This is the Lord’s doing, And it is marvelous and wonderful in our eyes’? 

But Jesus even told those who thought they had understanding, the stone you builders rejected has now become the chief cornerstone. Matthew 23:13 “But woe judgment is coming to you, self-righteous scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut off the kingdom of heaven in front of people; for you do not enter yourselves, nor do you allow those who are in the process of entering to do so. 

We are all living stones in His temple and body, all members. Just as a baby is equally a part of the family as a full grown child or parent. Yes, the new babe in Christ will require to be fed and attended to more, but don’t despise the days of small beginnings when you were once fed and attended to as a new babe. 

See that you do not despise or think less of one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven are in the presence of and continually look upon the face of My Father who is in heaven. For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost, Matthew 18:10-11.

The Cage is Open

By Maili Super

The Lord was telling me yesterday that His people were not meant to be caged, but they were meant to wonder. He said that many of my children have felt caged. Like an animal in the zoo when they are caged they pace back and forth. They were meant for wide open spaces and they have felt that they were subdued by the world and held back in a cage like an animal, so they pace back and forth waiting and watching for any opportunity to escape the cage they have been placed into.

The Lord is saying I am blowing off the doors of the cage that binds you. I am moving faster then the speed of light to free you from the bondage that you have found yourself in today. You will be like a rocket with a booster pack on your back, you will fly so far and so far your enemies will not even see which way that you are going. They will not understand how you escaped the clutches of their hands. They will leave for a second knowing you are secured, and the next minute we will be gone.

Lord said our season of hiding is at an end. We are not going to be held in place by our enemies any longer. To God be the Glory, He is our Redeemer, our Vindication, our source of substance in very times of trouble. He has not left us nor forsaken us. He draws close to the broken at heart. He knows the situation these enemies have placed us into and He says “Enough is Enough, Now is the time for Me to turn the tables of favor in your behalf.

Acts 5:19-20

19 But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, 20 “Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life.”

WORD FOR TODAY 1/23/2017

By Tiffany Bretana


I was given a picture of a seashell, and the Lord reminded me of how we as little kids would put the seashell to our ears to hear the ocean. The seashell captures the ambient noise, which then resonates inside the shell. The Lord is saying to some, listen for My sound, I am moving upon the waters. You shall sense by My Spirit the stirring. For others, you have heard My sound, now come out onto the water and WALK!!! This is the moment you have been waiting and anticipating for. 


I was given a picture of a speed sailboat ⛵️ , its skimming on top of the water. You have been authorized for the full throttle of the wind of My Spirit in your sails. You have been in a season where I had to streamline and lighten your load that would have caused drag, now you can move at a higher accelerated rate, where resistance will be surpassed. 


Some of you have felt you were place on the seat of a dunk tank. The seat, a place where others can see you from a distance, but you were on My platform. Those hurling balls at you were heckling trying to dunk & dump you under the water through their insults and humiliation. The Lord says their insults and throws will miss every time. I will curve their hurls directed towards you, away from the target, you. 

The Lord says I will confirm you, as I confirm My Word spoken forth from you, as you have heeded to seek My face and speak forth the word given, whether they heeded or not. 

2 Kings 7:2 Then the royal officer on whose arm the king leaned answered the man of God and said, “If the Lord should make windows in heaven for the rain, could this thing take place?” Elisha said, “Behold, you will see it with your own eyes, but because you doubt you will not eat of it.” 

2 Peter 1:19-21 And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. 


I hear the Lord say, break the cords of division within the body of Christ. Choose not to have an opinion. I’m calling forth My Church, My Bride to ARISE!!! Put down your differences, and put up your banner of unity! Wrap yourself in cords of unity. A house divided can not stand. 

1 John 4:20-21 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also. 

Hidden for a Season

By Maili Super

There are times in life when the Lord chooses to hide you away for a season. These times are Not at all comfortable you feel cramped in your tiny quarters, much as a caterpillar feels when they enter into their tiny quarters and spin a tight webbing system completely around themselves. They are hidden away from the world for a season. As the caterpillar grows and wings form, this tiny cocoon feels very claustrophobic, the space they are in seems so tight that they are barely able to move. The immovability they experience, allows this caterpillar to be completely healed of any flaw that must be rectified before they can fly. Before entering into the cocoon the caterpillar will eat everything in site, they become fat and barely able to move before going the hibernation, this is so they can go with out eating during their metamorphosis.

This is much the way that we are hidden away from the world for a season, for a time of extreme healing or a time of great promotion. We have to go through a great “birthing” process before the baby is born, so to speak. Before we can have the great rewards of life the Lord needs to know that we are strong enough to hold the weight of the reward. I am sure we have all witnesses child stars that come into wealth and power too prematurely and before they are capable of handling it. In most of these cases their lives are absolutely devastated. This is what the Lord is trying to prevent by allowing us to wait, this is not to punish us or make us as insolent children, it is a preparation time and the more we wiggle and squirm rather than allowing the healing to take place the longer we must wait in transition, because we are not healed yet. With your YES to the Lord to heal these deep areas, the ones that we guard so dearly to our heart because they hurt so bad, we will not allow anyone to get close to them. He is faithful to restore even the hardest of hearts. Just remember we are about to come out of the cocoon I know it is dark in there and times are hard, But soon we will fly above it all and see the world with all new colors we have never seen before
