Speak life to your future. The devil speaks death and discouragement and tries to steal your future for his purposes. He uses deception and deceit to produce confusion. You have the breath of life within you, because My Spirit has joined with your spirit. Use this breath to speak My word to your own ears and hear what the Spirit says to His church. As you begin to recognize the messages you have believed of death and discouragement, disease and disaster I want you to call back life, encouragement, health and the promised future I have planned for you. When the thief is caught he is required to pay back double what he has taken. I have told you that you are blessed and to be fruitful and multiply and I watch over My word to see that it comes to pass. ~God

Genesis 1:28 God blessed them and said “be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth and subdue it. Rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every creature that crawls on the earth”.

Exodus 22:7 If anyone gives a neighbor silver or goods for safekeeping and they are stolen from the neighbor’s house, the thief, if caught, must pay back double.

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to five you hope and a future.”

A cleansing flood is coming. The latter rain.  I intend to turn your heart to Me and give you singleness of mind. I am blessing you. It will be different than what you had anticipated for My thoughts are above and I see the entirety of your purpose and life. I am giving you eyes to see what you have been given.  I have given you benefits.  I daily load you with benefits and My mercies are new every morning. As you recognize the things I’ve bestowed on you as coming from Me, you will no longer allow the enemy to whisk them away. As you look at circumstances I want your first thought to be “The Lord is blessing!” for I have told you that I have good planned and not harm. I intend to prosper you.  Listen to Me. Don’t follow your own stubborn desires or live according to your own ideas. I will subdue your enemies and feed you with the finest wheat and wild honey from the rock.

Psalm 81

I want to encourage you to let go. I see your possessiveness. I am Creator and Sustainer, Author & Perfector, Beginning & End. I am Lord. Your anointing becomes contaminated when you try to control.  You say of things “This is mine” “My marriage” “My ministry”  “My friends”  “My church” “My house” “My life”.  When you say “this thing is mine”  you are saying that you are in control of its growth and its behavior and you limit and confine it to what you can do with it. But I, The Lord, have plans to prosper you; plans to give you a hope and a future, not to harm you, I will enlarge your territory as you release and recognize that I am in control. I want to peel away this control you use to protect yourself from others. When you allow others to be free around you, even in their ugliness and sin, you will experience perfect love. I want you to know perfect love and to show this to others. Perfect love gives it doesn’t have to take or require anything of others. ~ Jesus

Prayer:

Father, please forgive me for the way I want to make others behave and how I have boundaries that I require others to always respect.  I recognize that everything I have is Yours and I surrender control of every area of life to You. Forgive me for the way I use others to feel good about myself. Please infuse me with Your Perfect Love for others even when they do things that frighten me. I acknowledge that you are Lord: of my marriage, my ministry, my friends, my church, my house, my finances, my hope and all that I call my life. I release control to you and choose this day to serve You! Lord Jesus, readjust my sense of value so that I consider the unseen as greater than the seen, and the spiritual riches more precious than all the wealth of the world. Amen
