‘You Are My Sons and Daughters’
You Are My Ambassadors
My heart longs for you—to hear your voice, to hear you call My Name. I love you and I love to hear you worship Me. I love to hear you take My Word and speak it back to Me. I love to hear you stand strong and tall without shame, for you are My ambassadors. You are My sons, My daughters, but you are also My warriors, says the Lord.
Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
You Are My Sons and Daughters
When you worship Me as My sons and My daughters, you put yourself in a place with Me to where you recognize Me as your Father, and I recognize you as My sons and My daughters. I take great pleasure in answering your prayers and giving you the things that I have to give you—it is the enemy that is accusing you. I have always been here, and I have always enjoyed giving you the things that you love in the relationship and fellowship that I have with you. You are My sons and daughters—I do not hold back from you nor do I turn My back on any needs that you have. I am here, so don’t be programmed by the enemy. Be programmed by Me and My Word and what I have promised you.
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
You Are a Treasure to Me
You are My child—Mine—a treasure to Me. You are this to Me—you are—YOU. You must receive this truth into the very depth of your being, for this is how I see, how I feel, how I think about you. It is not as your mind screams, “He means the person sitting next to me!” I mean YOU. The plans I have for you are so great. Continue to abide in Me, surrender daily to My path for you, and together, we will soar into the future I have always planned for you.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
You Are Born of Me
There is no one like you. I did not make you like anyone else. You are born of Me. I have made you and I will finish you, complete you. There is no one else like you. Trust Me. Walk with Me. Let Me mold you and shape you. We will do this together.
Isaiah 64:8 But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.
You Are My Responsibility
When you truly come to understand that you are Mine, you enter a realm of rest. You begin to understand that because you belong to Me, you are My responsibility. As My child, you come to understand that I am a responsible Father, a Father who can be trusted with the outcome of your life in all circumstances you find yourself in. I want you to know that you are Mine. You are My child—My responsibility. It is My good pleasure to care for you—to love you, to nurture you, to see to it that you have what you need to grow and flourish in all I have created you for, both to do and to be.
Matthew 11:28,29 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
You Are My Workmanship
You are My workmanship created for good works. It is My joy to have a people who have come to Me to be set apart for My use by the work of My Spirit. Let My Spirit finish the separation. Finish this next step into the understanding of our union and My life in you. Allow My love to flow in greater measure to you and through you, for this is required in all that we will do. Great grace is available each day.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
You Are in My Keeping
It doesn’t matter what the devil pulls. He’s already lost. He has lost already. There is nobody he can have victory over or beat up who knows Me well enough to know that they can stop the devil themselves, because I gave you that authority. So have no fear. You are My sons and daughters, and I am here standing with you. You are in My keeping. Walk in no fear. Be brave. Be brave, for what I said I would give you, the devil has presented it [as] impossible. Don’t walk after what he is doing and bringing and making you feel. You turn around and do and follow Me and what I said—you will already begin to experience greater victory than you have been walking in.
Luke 10:18,19 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
You Are My Child
Come up higher, says the Lord, for I have places of fellowship for you. For did not I say if you knock, if you ask, if you seek, did I not say the door would be opened unto you? So as you open the door of your heart and allow Me to come fellowship there, know this: Knock at the door of My Father’s Kingdom and you shall be allowed every chamber. You shall be allowed in every room. There are no secrets: You are My child, and all that I have belongs to you. Come. Come up higher, says the Lord. Oh, I have things to share with you, you have not seen. I have things to share with you, you have not tasted. I have things for you that you have not understood. Come unto Me. Come up higher, says the Lord, and let us fellowship together.
Luke 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
You Are My Sheep
You are My sheep of My pasture, and I know each of you by name—each of you. You are already My remnant, and I am speaking to each of you where you are, and I am saying, Come with Me. Let Me lead you out of where you are. I have a better pasture. I have more pure water. I have wisdom. I have understanding for you. Each of you, I know you where you are. I know your name. Trust Me. I can bring you from where you are to where you want to be in My Kingdom and where I want you to be in My Kingdom, but no man can do this for you. Come, just come. I will put My arm around you and I will walk you out of those things you are ashamed of, says the Lord.
Isaiah 48:17 Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.
You Are Not Alone
Of course, I have help. You are not alone in this fight against your flesh. Of course, I have help for you. I have all the strength and grace and mercy that you need to continue every day to win and to stand against whom the flesh is trying to tell you that you are. You are not who the flesh says you are. You are My child. You are My child, and I see you as victorious. I see you as an overcomer. I see you in the future. I see you even today as a child whom I am proud of, whom I love, and I am with you every step of the way. I will not forsake you. I will not abandon you. I am your Strength.
Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
You Are Made Equal
No man can know Me above another man. I have made you all equal, and [I was] no respecter when I gave you everything that I have. Therefore, stand up and be strong and come and fellowship with Me, and I will reveal Myself to you. For success is yours and strength and peace. Oh, take My peace. For the days to come, take My peace, for it will be one of the strongest attributes you will possess in the days to come, says the Spirit of Grace.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
You Are Loved
By the still waters is where your refreshing is, says the Lord. I lead you by those still waters. I cause you to lie down in grassy areas of peace, in beautiful meadows where the sunshine falls upon you gently, warming your soul and filling you with thanksgiving, joy, and peace, says the Lord. Be not moved by those things of the flesh, be not moved by those circumstances that surround you, but stay in My peace, says the Lord. The peace I give is not as the world gives. Know that you are loved. I am pleased with you.
Psalm 23:1-3 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
You Can Expect My Love
My absolute joy is to visit you again and again in seasons of My love and refreshings. It is My desire for your soul to be a well-watered garden. And for those who learn to abide in My love, this is possible. I am Love, and there is no greater desire than to pour My love on you. My nature is Love, and you can expect My love to draw you, refresh you, strengthen you, heal you, deliver you, sustain you, and comfort you, time and time again. I do not withhold My love from you, for I do not withhold Myself from you. As you continue to visit Me with your love, I will continue to visit you with My love. I will conform you more and more into the image of the Love the eyes of your understanding see as I visit you in the Love that I am.
Isaiah 58:11 And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
You Have a Father Who Is For You
His heart is for you to know that He is at peace with you and that His heart is for you to be at peace with Him, that you have a Father who believes in you, who loves you, who is for you, not against you. Whatever you are facing, you shall overcome.
2 Corinthians 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
God, You are my Father. I am Your child. You are my Strength. You are my Hope. I cannot do this without You, but because I have You, I don’t have to do this without You. You are all I need, and You are for me, not against me. Amen.
Hearing My Words As My Life to You
As Father to My family, I am about to give you a key. For each one who picks up this key, it will be your staff of victory.
Take each word I speak to you as if it is said only to you. If you think of it for someone else and not you, you have already erred, and an adjustment must be made in you toward truth. Each word I speak to you that I do not specify to another is as if it is to you alone.
Just as in the days of old, those who heard My words often cut off the message in judgment of the messenger, so it is too often in My family. I use those I choose who are willing, and My heart delights in that. I also use those I choose to help My family walk deeper in My love and truth, learning that it is not My messenger, but I who speak to you.
Is there any word of My Word that was not recorded for you? Is not each one of My words recorded just for you? So it is with the words I speak this day and the words I have spoken to you. If you will choose to hear each word I speak as Me speaking to you and choose to do what I ask you to do, you will not lose.
If you will take each word that has come from Me, all that has been said for you, and take them to yourself as if they are brand new and sit with Me and hear Me speak them to you, you will be My disciples, and My life will come forth in you.
This key is My delight to give to you. I speak these things not in disappointment, but in joy that these words can be spoken to you. You are receivers of My truth, and there are many things I have yet to say to you. As you hear and embrace this key of hearing My words as My life to YOU, you will be ready for the things I am preparing you for that I will say to you.
GREAT is My delight in you, and great is My joy that I may come now and say these things to you. My words are life to you, and abiding in My Word is discipleship in you. As you follow these instructions I give you, more instructions can come. I will speak to you as family, and I will speak to you as sons. Great is My joy this day.
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
John 15:7,8 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
Psalm 85:8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
The foundation for the letter this month is a word the Lord shared back in 2010. We chose to title this particular present-day word, “Hearing My Words As My Life to You,” because in it, the Lord highlights the foundational importance of fellowshipping with Him around what He has said.
In this word the Lord shared in 2010, He says that if we will take His words and come and sit with Him and fellowship with Him regarding them—knowing that He has spoken them personally to each one of us—and read His words and meditate on them and speak them back to Him, personalizing them, and inquire of Him about them, then we allow Him to take us through the process of discipleship and His life in us will come forward more and more.
Our Father disciples us as we fellowship with Him in the Spirit, for He is Spirit and His words are spirit—the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life (John 6:63)—and what we reap from our times spent with Him is supernatural and brings increase to more of His life manifesting in and through us.
One of the first steps we can take in fellowshipping with our Father around the words He speaks to us is receiving His words as specific to us, not just words for someone else, or for the person next to us, but words spoken to us personally, individually. Jesus says in Mark 4:15 that Satan comes immediately to steal the words that are sown in our heart, showing us how the devil wastes no time in trying to steal what God has sown. But when we take God’s words and fellowship with Him, the enemy is not so easily able to steal the truth from us, because we are giving our Father the opportunity to minister to us and increase our understanding concerning what He has spoken.
God’s words are spirit and life—His words of life to us and His ever-present victory for us. What He said in 2010 is alive and powerful, just as if He said it today.
The monthly letters we send out every month with their present-day speaking allow each one of us to put discipleship into practice through the truths God shares—the practice of hearing and receiving His words as His life to us—to us specifically, individually, and personally.
God loves to fellowship with us over what He has said to us. He delights in times with us spent One-on-one, where His Presence, grace, and understanding can come forward in us. He is building up a family of mature sons and daughters who abide in His words, fellowship with Him over His truths, and bear much fruit to His glory. Each one of us is on our own unique path with Him, but we are all headed in the same direction—maturing so that our lives bear much fruit as children of the Most High God, our Father.
God bless you in your precious times spent with your Father, fellowshipping with Him over His words to you. He so looks forward to it!

Imagine My Day at the Whipping Post
Imagine My day at the whipping post. Imagine that you were there with Me, and there I was and there you were as I was tied to that post to be beaten. Imagine that you were there between Me and the post that day and that each blow I took, each stripe I bore, that I whispered your name.
All was done, each stripe was taken, as if you were there with Me and I whispered your name in the midst of the pain. By the stripes laid on Me that I received, you were healed that day. Nothing could be done by man on that day, for all was done by Me. Men and women not yet born were healed when the stripes were laid on Me, for I was a covenant offering. I was the Lamb, the perfect Lamb who was the offering My Father received.
Imagine that you knelt between Me and the whipping post that day, and all the stripes landed on Me as I covered you safely from that which was happening to Me. And what you heard was Me saying your name each time a stripe was received. Imagine the love that you knew as you were covered by Me, knowing that every wound I received was so that you could freely receive a place in Me of a covenant of love everlasting.
I am the Healer, you are the healed, not by what you have done but because of what I did for you. This is the love, the covenant Love who took your place so that you could receive a place in Me, in My Father’s steadfast love—a place of healed and made whole and free—all because I love you. Life in Me is a receiving place where I gave that you might receive. Come and believe and receive.
Isaiah 53:4,5 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Matthew 8:16,17 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
