Word for Today:  April 30


Develop an Expectancy in your heart.

See it.  Imagine it.  Think it.  Keep it before your eyes.  See it with the eyes of faith.  “See the invisible and expect the impossible.”     Moses “endured” this way.  When it seemed that nothing was ever going to happen, he “endured” as “seeing the invisible.”   He developed an expectancy in his heart.  He “saw” it before he really saw it.

By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.  Heb 11:27

Everything and all things that have ever manifested in the natural had their birth in somebody’s heart.  Somehow and some way somebody “saw it.”  Dreams come true because dreamers see the dream.   It is in the world of Faith-Seeing that Reality is created.  What you can “see” is what you can get.

God saw before He said.  When He SAW then He SAID.  He had the image in His Heart of Faith before He spoke the Creative World into existence


See it.  Say it.  Expect it.  Get it.

Sow the seed that meets the need.

Every need has a matching seed.  Find the seed that matches the need and sow it.  One unfailing principle of God’s Word is the principle of Sowing and Reaping.  You will never have a need if you practice sowing according to God’s Word.  You do not have a “need” problem… you have a sowing problem.  Seed does no good as long as you hold it.  It must be sown… put in circulation.

If you need joy… sow joy.  If you need healing… go pray for someone who is sick.  If you need encouragement, go to some discouraged individual and speak encouragement to them.  If you need finances… give into the Kingdom.  And be sure that the soil you choose to sow in is good ground.

Finally, prepare for the increase.  Plan Big.  Think Big.  Talk Big.  Expect Big.  Believe Big.  You are the key.  God allows you to set your own limits and fix your own boundaries.  You initiate and heaven shouts Amen!  You begin and Heaven confirms.  You loose on earth and God looses in Heaven.  You bind on earth and God binds in heaven.


You begin and God finishes

Seize the opportunity you have TODAY.

Jesus was leaving Jericho headed for Jerusalem.  He was on His way to die and He would never again pass that way.  Blind Bartimaeus did not know that, but it was still the truth.  Who knows when our last opportunity will come?  Who can tell when our Day of Visitation will expire?

If all the blind and halt and lame had known that Jesus would never pass that way again, they would have lined the streets and pressed in and mobbed Jesus as they sought for their miracle.

I wonder how many have missed their miracle because they ignored a present day opportunity.  I believe that God has prepared this brief message just for you.   And He has purposed that you would read and heed it today.

Some need forgiveness.  Some need healing.  Some need deliverance from sin.  Some need the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.  Some need fellowship with other Believers.  Some need to get to a place where they can hear from God.  Some need a miracle to deliver them from a desperate situation.

Jesus is passing your way.   Right now. I want to believe He will pass your way again, but I have no guarantee of it.  Nor do you.  Don’t be like the hundreds that missed Jesus while He journeyed through their city.

 Seek ye the Lord while He may be found… call ye upon Him while He is near…  Isa 55:6


That is NOW

The Main Thing.


There is absolutely nothing as important as being Right with God.  Being Right with God means being Born Again.   It means living for God.  It means resisting and refusing to live in sin.  It means being ready to die and ready to live. It means not being satisfied to exist or merely survive.  It means being ready to meet Jesus and to greet Jesus.  It means not fearing death, being terrified of the graveyard, or dreading eternity.    It means living in obedience to the Word and it means being free from sin’s control and dominion.  It means being a Witness.  It means making a Positive Difference in the Word.  Nothing… absolutely nothing is as important as being Right with God.

The world is hell-bent on preventing you and me from getting Right with God and staying Right with God.   It (the world system) is controlled by the devil and demons and they are actively engaged in all kinds of deception in order to keep you and me from being Right with God.  If you are right with God, the Kingdom of Darkness is determined to get you back and keep you out of the Will of God.  They will spare nothing.  They will work day and night to get to you, to get to your family, to get to your mind, to get to your heart.  Jesus warned us that:

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:  John 10:10

Therefore, the One Thing we must be absolutely sure of is that we are Born Again and Right with God.    Nothing else really matters.  Jesus is not so much concerned about your church membership or your denominational affiliation. He is not so concerned about all your Spiritual Gifts.  Your Religious Credentials are worthless.  Your good works are just not enough.  Your performance doesn’t matter.

“The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.”


And being right with God is the Main Thing

Dreamers of the day.

“Everyone dreams, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people, for they may act out their dream with open eyes to make it happen.” (Anon)

Are you a “dreamer of the day”?  If you are you are dangerous to the powers of darkness…. especially when you dream of accomplishing great and impossible things for God.  The singular most profound thing is for us to REALLY BELIEVE that we can do all things through Christ.  When that one truth saturates our total being, we become Dreamers of the Day.  What you Dream you can become.  What you Dream can be moved into Reality.  Jesus has fixed it so that our “dreams can come true.”

God has built into every Believer the ability and possibility of Dreaming.  Dreaming Big Dreams.  The militant Body of Christ is a Body of Visionaries.  Chasing stars.  Reaching beyond their grasp.  Pushing the envelope.  Thinking outside the “box” and surging right off the page.

This is the season for your Dreams to manifest.  For your Visions to come to be realized.  For what you have been aiming at, believing for, expecting and anticipating to really happen.  Heaven is for dreamers.  Victory is for Visionaries.  Real life is experienced only by those who will never be satisfied with the normal.  The mediocre.  The natural.  What are you willing to “go for” today?  This week?  Right now?

What you can dream you can become. What you can envision, can happen.  This is the heritage every believer.  Reaching.  Stretching.  Expanding.  Growing.  Becoming.

Wilderness experiences.

The nature of the believer is to resist the Wilderness.  Wilderness experiences are not pleasant.  We like comfort and convenience.  We like the tranquility of affluence and the relief from hardship.  In the wilderness there is hardship and uncertainty and loneliness.  There are wonderful opportunities to doubt and wonder and waver in faith.  In the wilderness.  No assurance.  No guarantees.  No comfort.  No security.

We would all call the wilderness a “bad experience” and one that we would like to avoid.  We like normality.  We like stability.  We do not like uncertainties.  We are geared to want to know what to expect.  We resist anything that jars us out of our comfort and routine.

Most people I know either are in, just out of, or going into a Wilderness Experience.  What do we do when we are in the desert?  How can we profit from the unpleasant?  When will we get out?  Why are we there anyway?  What is God doing to us?

Moses was supernaturally selected by God for a special purpose.  He was redeemed from certain death and found as a baby by Pharaoh’s daughter.  He was raised in the king’s court and was being groomed for political leadership and power.  He was headed for great success.  Then he killed an Egyptian who was beating one of his Hebrew brethren.  He fled into the Wilderness to escape the wrath of the king.  He left the promises of Egypt and the prospects of Political power and wealth to become a sheep herder for his Father-in-law.

On the “backside of the desert” (That’s Wilderness) while he was keeping sheep, the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in the flame of a burning bush.  God began to talk to him and it was at this very place, that he was called and commissioned to lead Israel out of Egypt.

It looked like Moses’ life was over.  It appeared that his future was bleak and all was lost.  In the Wilderness, Moses met the “I AM.”

His Wilderness became the turning point in his life.


Your drought may be the beginning of a great refreshing

Life at its BEST.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10 

“Life” in this verse is the word “Zoe” which is a Greek term that describes a quality of life, not a quantity, but a quality of life.  It is the word that describes the very same kind of life that God has.  Jesus is saying here, “I have come that you might have life and that life will be the same kind of life that I have and the same kind of life that God has… ”

This is the abundant life that Jesus has given to you and to me.  It is not simply “living and breathing” or “natural, physical” life, but it is the same quality of life that God has.  The same type of Life God has.  It is the “God Kind” of life.

Can you imagine God being worried?  Can you imagine God being afraid?  Can you imagine God being sick?  Can you imagine God being in a bad mood?  Or having a “bad hair day?”  Can you imagine God being poor?   Can you see God being depressed or stressed?  Or sad, or melancholy or “blue?”

God is not saving up for a rainy day.  God is not getting ready to go to the hospital.  God is not tired out or “wore” out… God is not planning on anything bad happening to Him.  He never has and He never will.  God is just fine.


If God is OK then you are OK.

God says you can.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.  Phil 4:13

Does this do away with all the “I can’t” situations?  Does this negate all “impossibilities” in your life?  Does this erase all excuses for self-pity?  Does this do away with all defeat?  Would God have said this if He did not mean it?

Does this apply to you as well as to others?  Certainly He said it and He certainly meant it.  Then all our problems have no “reason” for remaining in our life.

How much longer do you intend on putting up with all that junk the devil has piled on you and your family?  Is there any reason for not doing that “impossible” thing now?

If we know to “do good” and “doeth it not” the Word says it is sin (James 4:17).  Any Believer who has the Truth and is willing to cast off everything that is contradicting it, can step right out of the impossible and into the possible.  But it requires ACTION.  It requires DOING.  It requires RISKING.  But it will WORK if the Believer will really believe.

Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.   Mr 9:23 

IF we have knowledge of the Truth and apply that knowledge to our circumstances through the God Kind of faith then Victory will be insured.  Every time.  All the time.  Anytime.


No matter what

God’s BEST is not a miracle.

God has promised to meet all your needs according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus (Phil 4:19).  Jesus plainly told us not to worry about what we are to eat, where we are to sleep or what we have to wear (Mat 6:33). Remember?

Worry is faith in the devil.   Worry is faith in reverse.  Worry slanders every promise in the Word of God.  Prospering means having all your needs met with a surplus left over.  And this is the will of God for you.

Remember, God’s best is never a miracle.  God’s best is that you never need a miracle.  Miracles do happen but don’t you think it is better if you never need one?   Living in health is better than needing to be healed from some sickness or disease.  Living in prosperity is better than needing some miraculous financial break-through to keep you afloat.  Living in joy and happiness and peace is better than needing some kind of miracle to free you from stress and depression.

God’s promises are far better than psychological band aids.   Look up scriptures that promise you what you need and then simply believe what God says.  Believe what God says in spite of what you see, what you feel or what you think.

You do not have to live constantly in fear and doubt….  God says that everything you set your hand to will succeed.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.  Psa 1:3 


Living in the constant blessing of God is better than needing a one-time miracle.

Speak to your mountain.


For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith…  Mark 11:23.

Your mountain may be your circumstances.  Your situation.  Your sickness.  Your marriage.  Your finances.  Your children.  Your job.  God has equipped you so that you can actually talk to your problems in Jesus’ Name and when you do so in faith, they must obey your command.  Jesus went around talking to things that had no ears.  He talked to a storm.  He talked to a fig tree.  He talked to certain sicknesses and diseases.  He called them by name.  He even talked to dead corpses.   He set the precedent and paid the price so that you and I can do what He did and expect the same results that He got.

demons, devils and bad situations are subject to your “saying.”  Whatever you say to them in Jesus’ Name they must do.  Every knee must bow to the majesty and might of that Name.

There is absolutely no reason for anyone to “feel sorry” for believers who are in trouble.   Do you know why?   Because if they are in trouble, they apparently do not know the Truth or have ignored the Truth or disobeyed the Truth.

There is no such thing as “I can’t” in the life of a Spirit Filled, Faith Filled, turned on Believer.  God expects you to take advantage of what Jesus has done for you through His suffering and sacrifice on the Cross.  Have you?  Are you?  Will you?

Your mountain will move over and make room for the Will of God in your life.


If you speak to it
