10/19/19 Eternal Plans

"I will always be with you. You are at the very center of My heart. When all things around you seem as if they are out of order, I remain the same. When there is no hope from those who are in authority, I have plans to make you prosper with My kind of prosperity. As you give yourself fully to Me, you have set in motion My plans for you. My plans for you are eternal. They are designed to give you hope and a wonderful future. Submit fully to Me now. Surrender every area of your life to Me without reservation. You can trust Me."

Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV  

5) Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
6) in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 18:10 NIV
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.
Isaiah 2:22 AMP
Cease to trust in [weak, frail, and dying] man, whose breath is in his nostrils [for so short a time]; in what sense can he be counted as having intrinsic worth?
Isaiah 30:21 NIV 
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying "This is the way; walk in it."
Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV 
11) "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
12) Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
13) You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
Hebrews 13:5b AMP
...for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]
What an astounding gift to have a Father who has all things in His grasp, who determines all things and cares for us with a loving heart. As a loving Father, He continually provides all that we need, both seen and unseen.
The next time you feel you have gone too far or failed Him once too often, remember His promise to never leave you. He looks at your heart. If it is turned toward and seeking Him, His heart is turned toward you.
Turn my heart toward You always, Lord,
Jim Corbett

10/19/19 Leading Others

As the frontier developed, pioneers hired wagon masters, who hired scouts to guide them through unknown territory. These leaders were of utmost importance for the safety of the whole wagon train. Without them, the novice pioneer was doomed to succumb to the perils of the trip, and open prey to any hardship encountered. They relied upon the expertise of the wagon master for all details, and the scout for his knowledge of the uncharted terrain. These men had been there before and worked from personal experience, not from theory or guesswork. It was almost certain death to follow someone who didn't know what he was doing.
God is calling His men to an intimate, holy relationship with Him in these closing hours of time. He is raising up those men who choose intimacy with Him to guide others through the peril that is on the horizon. He is calling forth mighty men of God to teach others to overcome the world and its ways, and re-establish His ordained offices of husband and father.
As foolish and hazardous as it would be for an inexperienced wagon master or scout to hire on as a leader of a wagon train, a man unfamiliar with an intimate relationship with his heavenly Father in the throne room of God is almost certain death to those who will need his guidance for the challenges ahead. As Jesus did nothing of Himself but only what His Father told Him to do, so must a man who guides others. He will not be able to give away what he himself does not own. He will not be able to take others to the safety of intimacy with the Lord if he has not often been there himself.
The world is changing at a remarkable rate. A new frontier, a spiritual walk in the kingdom of heaven with God in Christ is required to overcome the world. Throne room familiarity is becoming a necessity.   Intimacy with God will be the only sure way of navigating the rough terrain ahead. A deep, personal, Christ kind of love will be the only option in bringing reason to the darkness that mankind is about to fall into. How will you, as a father and husband, lead others through the mire and above the world if you haven't been there yourself?
Today is the day to decide to take up a new address in the kingdom of heaven with God in Christ. It will require a decision to make intimacy your priority, not only to please your Father in heaven, but to gain what is necessary to teach others how to go there themselves. When are you going to go there so they can follow?
Let's talk more!

10/18/19 Choose to Submit

"Jesus lived a passionate life. He involved His entire being in every task presented to Him. Equipped from Our time together and empowered by Our Holy Spirit, His presentation of truth caused some remarkable changes in those who came near to Him. Ordinary people went on to do extraordinary representations of My desires because they followed His pattern of living.
       "That same presence is available to you. The same Holy Spirit that lives in everyone totally committed to Our way is available to you, if you will only surrender fully to Him. Choose this day whom you will passionately serve. Choose each moment to submit fully to the Lordship of Jesus over every aspect of your life. Determine to live the kind of life that is your heritage. Become zealous about presenting the Truth to a world that lives in lies. Live as Jesus did."
Psalm 111:2 NIV
Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them.
Isaiah 2:22 AMP 
Cease to trust in [weak, frail, and dying] man, whose breath is in his nostrils [for so short a time]; in what sense can he be counted as having intrinsic worth?
Matthew 11:12 NIV
"From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it."
Acts 17:28a AMP
For in Him we live and move and have our being...
Rom 11:36 AMP
For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. [For all things originate with Him and come from Him; all things live through Him, and all things center in and tend to consummate and to end in Him] To Him be glory forever! Amen (so be it).
When was the last time you became passionate about the Lord's plans? For that matter, when was the last time the Lord's plans for your life took priority over the other demands of your life?
God is clearly requiring each of us to make Him our priority. Still, most of us agonize over the demands of simply living out each day - paying the rent, providing for food, etc. To stop, even for a day, and spend it entirely with the Lord should He ask us to do so, would be a gift beyond comprehension for some of us. I believe that the answer is heart commitment.
I believe that each and every one of us must make a choice to live Christ's passionate life throughout our every very ordinary days. We are to approach with zeal the tasks and the people placed before us, presenting every one of them as an offering. I am convinced that this life is not so much about what we do as it is about the One for whom we are doing it. If everything that we become involved in is truly offered to the Lord and placed under His Lordship, the fluff will fall away and the eternal purposes of God will become priorities to us, changing us and those around us who are looking for answers.
Take my stuff and replace it with Your stuff, Lord,
Jim Corbett

10/18/19 Daddy Issues

Over the years I have discovered that one of the most prominent foundations for harmful or broken behavior stems from issues dealing with the father figure in some way. Abuse of any kind by the father can bring a lifetime of pain and suffering. That's obvious; but what about the father who is absent physically or in spirit - meaning "he just wasn't there" or "he was too busy"? That basically non-existent relationship has no doubt caused harm to countless men and women through the ages.
God has established the offices of husband and father as the highest offices on this earth. A proper covering by the father creates a generation of men and women who can become key players in God's kingdom work. Conversely, a father who has no idea how to use his office effectively is a catalyst for producing a generation of wounded, hurting offspring who may never recover sufficiently to join the Lord in furthering His plans. Because of the errant actions of the father, these wounded children - of any age - will not truly be set free until they are functioning under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Men, your God-ordained role of father is far more important than you could ever imagine. God designed the office you've been given to give your offspring fertile gardens where they can grow and prosper, and become vessels that God can use to change their world. Anything less than that will be something you will answer for when you stand before Him unless you repent and change your ways.
It's not too late! Today you can ask the Lord to undo anything you've done that is harmful to those He has given you to steward. Today you can call upon the Lord for His power to make you a steadfast vessel for Him, so that you are equipped to lead your children past any "daddy issues" they may have because of your ignorance. Today Father God is ready to make you the kind of father He intends you to be for the good of your children and those they impact. He will even take you past your own "daddy issues" so that you can prosper. Are you willing to walk it out?

10/17/19 As You Have Been Forgiven

"You walk in unforgiveness and still claim to be My vessel of service. How can that be? Forgiveness is what the cross of Jesus is all about. He died so that you could be forgiven. Forgiveness is what you have received so that We could talk. Forgiveness is what you are counting on when you stand in front of Me on that last day. Would you like to be given the same forgiveness that you have given others, especially those close to you? That is what will happen unless you change your heart. Forgive as Jesus did. Forgive as you have been forgiven. Don't think that I am with you in anything you do until you have forgiven everyone who has harmed you. Come to Me; I will help you!"
Matthew 5:23-24 NIV
23) "Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you,
24) leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift."
The root sin of unforgiveness is pride.  Because that is rarely recognized, it is never really dealt with as such; and we evade submitting the root sin to the total Lordship of Jesus Christ. Anyone harboring unforgiveness toward another has, in essence, determined to hold that sin (real or imagined) over that person and has chosen to be the "lord" of that incident or grieving situation. The dominance and control exercised by the unforgiving party denies all that was promised to God when he/she committed to the Lordship of Jesus in all areas.  This area, therefore, remains under the dominance of Satan. Pride caused him to be expelled from the presence of God, and he is delighted when we follow his lead in any area of our lives.
If God has forgiven the person who has offended you but you won't, are you not telling Him that your position is loftier than His? In light of the truth, that's not possible, is it? What do you need to do at this point?
God demands that we forgive if we desire to be truly free.  He even shows us, in Luke's account of the crucifixion, that Jesus forgave all those who harmed Him; and also the repentant thief just before he died. We must do the same.
Unforgiveness, although often deeply masked by wounds, scars, and self-pity, is one of the greatest causes of weakness in the body of Christ and it will cripple any attempt to draw close to the Lord if left unconfessed. Once this main stronghold is acknowledged and confessed, a tide of healings and freedoms are able to surface and it can be brought under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Help me forgive everyone, Lord,
