John 3:8  "The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes.   So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."

MARCH 2023

March 24, 2023: Take the time to evaluate your vulnerabilities. Make whatever changes are necessary to stay safe and protected. Strengthen your resolve to make it through current challenges. It may not be easy, but it is necessary. Keep your wits about you and calculate your best course of action. When in doubt, ask for wisdom. James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

March 23, 2023: Continue to move forward even when there are physical and emotional barriers. Do not sit down and give up. You are still a vital human being, and you can do far more than you think you can. Rise up internally to find that place of strength and hope. When the going gets tough, the tough get going. 2 Chronicles 15:7 But you, be strong and do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.

March 22, 2023: There are adjustments to be made in specific areas of your work flow. I will give you the wisdom you need to make changes that will result in greater clarity, understanding, and safety. Remember that you are under My protection, and I will guide you through even the most difficult maze, says the Lord. Deuteronomy 31:8 And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.

March 21, 2023: Set yourself to be sensitive to the moving of the Spirit. You will need to shut out the thoughts of condemnation, anxiety, and worry. Rise above the mundane to live and walk in the Holy Spirit. This will take conscious effort in the beginning, but will soon become a way of life. Galatians 5:24-25 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

March 20, 2023: Issues in your life that have seemed to be obscure will now begin to become clear. It will be as though you stepped out of deep darkness into the bright light of day. I will bring clarity to that which has been cloudy, and cause you to see beyond confusion to grasp revelation. Luke 1:78-79 Through the tender mercy of our God, with which the Dayspring from on high has visited us; to give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

March 19, 2023: You are in a season of preparing the ground of your heart to receive greater spiritual revelation. You must internalize that truth. Receive it in the good ground of your heart with faith and understanding that it will take root, grow, and produce a harvest. Psalm 1:1-3 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, not sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.

March 18, 2023: Put yourself in divine order and in the flow of My Spirit. Allow nothing to interfere with the peace that comes with being in perfect harmony with Me, says the Lord. Proceed with the assurance that I know every detail of your life and that I care for you. I am with you, and will take you where you need to be, to do what I have given you to do. Trust and obey. Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

March 17, 2023: Quiet your soul, and allow Me to lead you through this valley. Never doubt that I am with you to guide you and give you wisdom. I know that it sometimes feels like I am far away, but I, the Lord, am as close as your breath, and I will never leave you nor forsake you. Rise up in faith and walk with Me. Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

March 16, 2023: Listen for the sound of silence and be comfortable with it. When nothing is stirring you to deep thought or action, you must stir yourself so that you do not lose your edge. Take the initiative through a desire to know Me more personally and intimately. Explore the depths of spiritual truth, and delight yourself in the light of revelation. Psalm 46:10 Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

March 15, 2023: You are My emissary, a representative of the Kingdom of God, and it is My desire that you strive to represent My character and nature in all that you are and all that you do. It is just as easy to do right as it is to do wrong, but you have the power to choose to be a worthy ambassador. 2 Corinthians 5:19-20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

March 14, 2023: In the midst of uncertainty and confusion in the world, you can be as steady as a rock. You are not your environment. You belong to Me, and I will provide stability and strength in otherwise precarious surroundings. I am your Rock and your Fortress. Put your trust in Me. Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

March 13, 2023: This is a brand new day, a clean slate. You can make it a good day if you will rise up in the strength of My Spirit and walk with Me. Set your heart to follow My leading and to do good. Do not waste this day with worry or self-loathing. Be strong and courageous. Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.

March 12, 2023: Life is full of ups and downs, but you can quite easily navigate your course when you stay connected to Me. I will give you purpose and direction and the ability to face and overcome every difficulty you encounter. Isaiah 45:2-3 I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel.

March 11, 2023: Refuse to be rattled by startling challenges when things do not go the way you expected. Roll with the punches, and do the best you can with the unexpected. Stay steady and go with the flow of the only constant in your life--My Spirit. Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

March 10, 2023: You are in an in-between stage of life when things are not the same as they were and you do not know what the future holds. Go with the flow of transition as you trust Me to reveal things left undone and to give you hope for the days ahead. Face each new day with confidence that I know the beginning and the end, and I will lead, guide, direct and protect you, says the Lord. Revelation 21:6 And He said to me: It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.

March 9, 2023: Rise above your fear and worries, and have faith in Me to lead you in the way you should go. Know that I care about you and the things that concern you, and that I am your Great Shepherd who watches over you to tend, feed and guard you. Put you faith in that truth. 1 Peter 5:6-7 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

March 8, 2023: When you face various trials and tribulation, remember that you are an overcomer. Stand strong and refuse to be brought down by difficult circumstances or be defined by them. This too shall pass, and you will find yourself to be victorious in the midst of chaos when you lean on Me, says the Lord. John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

March 7, 2023: Yield your heart and soul to My perfect will for you. It is My desire that you never stop, even for a moment, seeking to be one with Me. Let us be in perfect union and of the same mind and heart, says the Lord. Only then will you prosper spiritually and naturally. Ephesians 4:1-3 I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

March 6, 2023: I am a God of mercy, and it is not My will that you be too hard on yourself for missing the mark of perfection. Yes, make corrections that are necessary, but you must learn to be lenient and compassionate even with yourself. Give yourself a break. Psalm 86:15 But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.

March 5, 2023: A unique path to life in the Spirit has been prepared for you, and when you have found that path, you must stay the course. Changes will be presented from time to time to aid your growth. However, no matter what you do or where you are, keep your focus on truth and righteousness. Continue to make your relationship with Me the number one priority, says the Lord. Isaiah 45:2-3 I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by name, Am the God of Israel.

March 4, 2023: I speak to those who tend to be impulsive, and caution you to spend the time to think things through before acting. Do not be hasty. Ask for wisdom and guidance before jumping into something you will regret. James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

March 3, 2023: Instead of looking at your problems and woes, begin to count your blessings. There are many things that you can be grateful for. Focusing on the good things will lift your spirits and give you hope. Psalm 106:1-3 Praise the Lord! Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Who can utter the mighty acts of the Lord? Who can declare all His praise? Blessed are those who keep justice, and he who does righteousness at all times!

March 2, 2023: Do not worry. It might seem like what you are facing is insurmountable, but with Me nothing is impossible. I will take you through the valleys and help you climb the highest mountain of achievement. Trust Me and let Me be your guide, your protector, and your very present help in trouble, says the Lord. Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

March 1, 2023: Refuse to get overwhelmed by the issues of life and the things that have the potential of keeping you awake at night. Settle yourself in the comfort of My presence and My care for you. Do not be afraid of what will be required of you in the future. You only have each moment to do the best you can with what you have. 1 Peter 5:6-8 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.


February 28, 2023: Exercise awareness of your environment and stay protected. There are people who will take advantage of you if you are not careful. You do not have to be disagreeable or unpleasant, but you do have to be vigilant. Remain connected to Me, says the Lord, and I will alert you of danger. John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

February 27, 2023: When you plan for the future, be sure to hold your plan loosely as with an open hand. You cannot predict the outcome of the days ahead; you can only use your past experiences as a guide. You must ask for wisdom and guidance by entering into My presence. I will give you the answers you need when you need them, says the Lord. James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

February 26, 2023: Do not just look, but see! Open your eyes to see, know, and understand your place in My kingdom; your purpose and destiny. This means that you have to go beyond interest in your worldly condition, position, and existence to become one with Me, says the Lord. You will be delighted when you can actually see through My eyes. Matthew 13:13 Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.

February 25, 2023: Beloved, rest in the assurance that I know your circumstances and the things that are a concern to you, and I will help you through every difficult challenge in your life. Put your trust completely in Me to do for you what you cannot do for yourself. Lean on Me, says the Lord. Philippians 4:19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

February 24, 2023: Refuse to allow the stress of your circumstances to get you down. You already know that I am with you to direct your steps and give you wisdom in all things. So, settle down. You can believe in yourself when you really do believe in Me, says the Lord. Be encouraged. Psalm 42:5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance.

February 23, 2023: Let My glory be known in all that you are and all that you do. Rise above flesh reactions so that My light can shine through the darkness around you. You are My emissary on the earth so that others can find their way to everlasting life. It is up to you to be a worthy representative, says the Lord. 1 Corinthians 10:31 Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

February 22, 2023: The decisions you make at this time will produce extraordinary consequences that will either help you tremendously or hinder you. Seek My face to know what you should do in every situation, says the Lord. I will give you the wisdom necessary to make good choices. The Serenity Prayer: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

February 21, 2023: For those who are tired and weary from shouldering great responsibilities, I say REST. Take the time from your busyness to be quiet and relax. But, also know that to whom much is required, much is given. I see your diligence and reward your faithfulness. 2 Samuel 22:21 The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands He has recompensed me.

February 20, 2023: When you feel disoriented, quiet your soul and do not be afraid. Reorient yourself to the reality of your surroundings and situation, and begin again. You are living in extraordinary times that can be difficult to discern. Settle yourself in the truth of My word and the reality of My Spirit. Psalm 131:2 Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.

February 19, 2023: Your hard work will pay off if you refuse to get discouraged. Do not give up. It is time to press through the obstacles that you face. I am with you to help you achieve My goals and purposes in your life. Only believe! I am with those whose hearts are set on fulfilling My will, says the Lord. Psalm 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

February 18, 2023: Please listen to My still small voice, says the Lord. I am going to direct you to change some things in your routine and the way you do business that may not make sense to you at the moment, but will bear fruit in the long run. I will open doors that have been shut and will shut doors that should not be open. Take these changes in stride, and clarity will follow. Revelation 3:8 I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

February 17, 2023: Your kindness is never wasted; it will produce a far greater reward than you could ever expect or imagine. The law of sowing and reaping is a given and cannot be denied. Never regret acts of unselfishness regardless of what others do with your generosity. Luke 6:38 Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.

February 16, 2023: Position yourself under My care and watchful eye. I will protect you and give you the courage to do all that is before you. You are My prized possession even when you feel like you have failed. The enemy of your soul will do what he can to discourage you, but I am with you to uphold and guide you. Psalm 17:5-7 Uphold my steps in Your paths, that my footsteps may not slip. I have called upon You, for You will hear me, O God; incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech. Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand, O You who save those who trust in You from those who rise up against them.

February 15, 2023: Resist the temptation to be irritated or annoyed; it will only undermine your faith and tear you down. Maintain a heart of forgiveness especially toward yourself where you believe you have fallen short of your potential. And, extend grace and forgiveness to others who have offended you. My grace is sufficient. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

February 14, 2023: Do not worry about the future. It will unfold one day at a time just like every day reveals itself. You must put your trust in Me to direct your steps. I will keep you in the hollow of My hand because you are precious to Me. Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

February 13, 2023: Refuse to stray from what you know is right and good. Always be true to your commitments, and keep your heart pure. Your future depends on it. Listen for My still small voice and do nothing apart from My leading. I will direct your steps if you allow Me to do so, says the Lord. Proverbs 6:16-19 These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.

February 12, 2023: Fix your gaze on Me, says the Lord. Everything in the world around you is designed to distract you and pull you down. Your spiritual vitality will come from establishing your relationship with Me first. Then, you can deal with the issues of life with wisdom and spiritual power. Proverbs 4:23 Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.

February 11, 2023: This is a time when you can address long-standing problems and find viable solutions. You are not a victim. You are victorious, and you are an overcomer by My Spirit. Rise up in the strength you have been given and break through the barriers that have held you back. I am your strength and courage, says the Lord. Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

February 10, 2023: These are times when it is imperative that you exercise self-control, and bridle your impulses. The flesh wants what is wants, but you can overcome the flesh by rising up to live and walk in the Spirit. Focus your attention on what you know is good for you and those around you, and set your heart to be the best version of yourself you can be. Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

February 9, 2023: Stay in the here and now. You can do nothing about what could happen or might happen except to make today a day of no regrets. Deal with situations and circumstances with utmost integrity. Treat others with the same care and honor that you desire for yourself. Strengthen yourself in the power of My presence. Luke 6:31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.

February 8, 2023: To the many who have been challenged to the nth degree and stretched almost beyond your ability to cope: Your strength will be found in your relationship with Me, says the Lord. Do not lose hope or give up. I have been with you all the way and will never leave you nor forsake you. Trust that I am indeed your very present help in times of trouble. Press on. Deuteronomy 31:8 And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.

February 7, 2023: When you get overwhelmed, stop and relax. Quiet your mind and emotions and listen carefully for My still small voice. I will show you what you need to know to navigate this maze of confusion. Refuse to allow condemnation to become part of your process. You are acceptable in My sight, and I have not condemned you. John 3:18 He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

February 6, 2023: Hang on to your faith, and refuse to allow disappointment or discouragement to cause you to doubt. Faith is your most powerful weapon to thwart the work of the enemy against you. Take time to reset and put things in perspective. Renew your spiritual commitment to serve the Most High God. Joshua 24:14-15 Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord! And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

February 5, 2023: Much of your internal work will have to do with self-control in these days. The world around you seems completely out of control, which is true to some extent. But that should not be the case with you. Set for yourself a code of ethics, a higher standard that aligns completely with My word. It is more critical than it has ever been. Luke 6:46 But why do you call Me Lord, Lord, and do not do the things which I say?

February 4, 2023: Be still, and know that I am God. I am as close as your breath. Deliberately feel My presence and become one with Me. Let Me lead you through the valley of despair into a place where you can know and feel the assurance of My goodness in your life and My ability to bring you through. Be strengthened in your body, soul and spirit. Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

February 3, 2023: You need to learn to live in the moment. To Not live in the moment is to worry about what is ahead. And, you already know that you must not worry. Stay present and take things as they come. Do the best you can with where you are and with what you have. 1 Peter 13-16 Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written: Be holy, for I am holy.

February 2, 2023: For those who are wounded and need healing, I am your Healer. Come to Me with your needs, and I will wash you and heal your body, soul and spirit. I will make you whole. Come let Me take your infirmity and set you free, says the Lord. Isaiah 53:5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.

February 1, 2023: This is a time when life seems difficult, if not impossible, to navigate. However, I will go before you to make the crooked places straight and to lead you into the realm of possibilities. Refuse to allow fear and worry to be your driving force. Let faith arise in you as I lead you out of this valley of shadows, says the Lord. Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
