This morning as I was writing another post on my Facebook page, I began to have such a sense of a “building up” in the atmosphere! Brothers & Sisters! God is moving…God is strengthening His people for what’s coming! We ARE the body of Christ!
[vision]. I see a weightlifter 🏋️. The Lord is strengthening us to lift and carry the “weight” of His glory and presence into all the world! We are in “training!” We have our own “personal Trainer!” Lean in and listen and obey the voice of the Lord!!
As I was typing this, I saw a vision of fireworks! On the Fourth of July, many people go with their families to watch fantastic displays of fireworks celebrating our freedom as a nation.
I believe the vision I had was reminding us that we, as God’s people, can celebrate our spiritual “Independence Day!” We are now free from the penalty of death for sin….Jesus paid the price!! We have been given eternal life!
It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
Beloved of God!! Are you walking free in Christ Jesus? Jesus is our Great Deliverer!! He has delivered us from the bondage of evil! He has delivered us from the power of sin! If there is anything today that has you in bondage…let today be your DAY OF FREEDOM!!!
I see great displays of the FIREWORKS of God all over the earth!!! HALLELUJAH!!
We will see great displays of His Power in the coming days!!
LET THE CELEBRATION BEGIN!!!!

A friend of mine posted this photo of a tree in New Orleans.
As I was looking at it, I immediately heard in my spirit, “Be careful what you surround yourself with…it will become a part of you!”
I’m sure that this metal support was put around the tree to help it grow. But, as we can see, there came a point where the metal began to become a part of the tree itself.
The tree is still growing, but we can see that the metal is affecting the integrity of the tree. It’s not meant to be a part of the tree structure – but because of it’s close proximity on a continual basis – it has become part of it.
I hear the Lord saying that we need to be aware of what we surround ourselves with! What are we allowing to transform us? God or man?
Do we surround ourselves with the Truth of God’s Word or do we surround ourselves with manmade truths and opinions?
As in the photo, we can still grow and continue our lives apart from God’s plan…but our lives will not display the beauty and purpose of our creation.
Brothers & Sisters! May our lives be a life of holiness, beauty, and truth in the Lord and not be marred with things of the flesh that will negatively affect our growth.
What surrounds us on a daily basis? What are we allowing to become a part of our lives…a part of who we are?

“Lord, make me a house of prayer! May the fire on my altar never burn up!” This is the cry of my heart!!
I am sitting here the day after my birthday feeling a renewed sense of purpose. I desire to be all that God wants me to be! I don’t want to hold myself back with my own limited expectations. I want to live out GOD’S expectations of me.
LORD, I place myself in Your hands! Empower and Anoint me for the days ahead to be Your vessel of “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control…”.
May You be honored in everything I say and do. Forgive me, Father, where I have fallen short! Manifest Your purposes in and through me, O LORD!!
I’m willing…I’m ready! I stand with an open heart, an open spirit, an open mind, and arms opened wide! Fill all of me with YOU, LORD!
I worship and adore You!!
