Shoot the Arrow and Strike the Ground

by Kathi Pelton

There have been a number of themes that I have been hearing in my spirit this month. One of them is, “Strike the ground!”

In 2 Kings 13, Johoash, King of Israel, was told by Elisha to shoot an arrow from his bow out the east window and when he did Elisha called it the “Arrow of the Lord’s victory.” Then he asked the king to take more arrows and strike the ground. The king struck the ground only three times and therefore only received three victories over Aram. Elisha then says, “If you had struck five or six times; you would have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it. But now you will only defeat it three times.”

I find it interesting that the “Arrow of the Lord’s Victory” goes forth through the air first…making a way for a complete victory. The king is then asked to strike the ground with more arrows but he falls short of completion. I believe that just like in this story, the Lord goes before us and creates (opens) a victory in the spirit realm (the air…the unseen) but then we (His kings and priests/sons and daughters) must partner with the victory that He sent forth by striking the ground here on earth. Our strikes must match what is needed to completely destroy the enemy. Yet, so often we stop short and though we have victories we do not see the complete destruction of the plans of the enemy.

We have seen that on many fronts; from moves of God that displace the enemy and establish the Kingdom of God through His Ecclesia to the issues in the land such as abortion and identity. I believe that the arrow of the Lord’s victory has once again been shot and that the prophets are asking the Church once again to pick up the arrows and strike the ground. Not once, twice or even three times but the full amount needed to completely destroy the enemy and the sin that had come upon the land. Our nation (and many nations) have done evil in the sight of the Lord and God is calling for repentance (turning away from sin). Even the church has been found with sin and stain that has stopped us from receiving the full victory.

This time can be different! A remnant is arising that is repenting and striking the ground until the enemy and the “evil done in the sight of God” is completely destroyed. We have come to the end of an era where the church fell short; causing divisions, offenses, and allowing the enemy to advance. But we are beginning the ground strike by striking the ground of the the places in our hearts and lives that have been occupied by the enemy. We are simultaneously striking the ground of the land with repentance, prayer, the blood of Jesus, declarations of His Word and worship.

The Accuser is presenting “evidence of wickedness” before God regarding the lives of the His people but because there is great repentance happening now (in this hour), I hear the Lord saying, “INADMISSIBLE!” The evidences of sin have been covered in the blood of Jesus and can no longer be brought forth. Authority is being restored to the innocent…His Ecclesia!

There is personal and corporate repentance taking place now that is changing everything. It is putting the church in the offensive position rather than the defensive posture. The evidence against the enemy is admissible and God is judging the evil that he has done.

This is what repentance looks like. It is like being held in a prison cell and repentance is the key that opens the door to set us free. Repentance is freedom! It is the release from the captivity of the enemy! It is such a great gift!

We are marching forth in March. Marching out of prisons that have held many captive for years. Even “life sentences” are being reversed! God’s arrow of victory has been shot and now we must strike the ground and not stop short. We strike the ground for the evil that has been done in the sight of God in our personal lives, in the church and in the land. We will strike the ground for unborn in the womb and the unborn in the spirit. It’s time to birth sons and daughters! It’s time for a move of God that has no end!

The arrow of the Lord’s victory has gone forth and now is the time to strike the ground that brings forth change!

An Invitation Into The Deep

by Kathi Pelton

“Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.” Psalm‬ ‭42:7‬ ‭

The sons and daughters of God have been invited to be taken into the deep places that will cleanse and purify our hearts. It is a deep purging of everything that has kept us from His perfect love, His truth and His ways. It is a baptism with cleansing water and a fire that refines. A way is being made into the deep places of God’s heart but the way requires that light must expose all darkness and fire falls upon the human heart.

These deep waters are answering the prayers that have come before the Lord that have cried out the words of David from Psalm 51:10-12

“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.”

We are in a Psalm 51 kairos moment in time where the deep longing to be holy as He is holy is resting upon us. The longing of God and the longing of His remnant have converged with a kiss of oneness. There is a convergence with the deep groaning (intercession) of Jesus, the groaning of creation and the groaning of mankind to be reconciled to His original intent and His perfect love.

This is why there is a roar coming from the Lion of Judah that releases the sound of restoration. This roar is bringing us into the depths of perfect love that cleanses us (His bride) and is releasing the fire that purifies. We long to be a bride without spot or wrinkle and suddenly we are more aware than ever of our spots and wrinkles. In the grip of this awareness and awakening, repentance becomes such a beautiful gift. Repentance draws us deeper and take us higher; it breaks down the barriers that keep us bound to the shame of sin and stains.

Come now, let’s settle this,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool. Isaiah 1:18

There are moments that “the deep” feels as if it might swallow us up or drown us but it is actually taking us higher. It is making a way for the motives of the heart to be made pure so that we can walk in oneness with Christ and oneness (unity) with the body.

He is calling out your name and inviting you into the deep places. It is an invitation into the depth, heights and widths of His perfect (agape) love. His perfect love brings water that cleanses and fire that purifies; making us whiter than snow.

Say yes to His call to come deeper!

I Heard The Lion of Judah Roar “REDEMPTION!” Over Your Life!

Kathi Pelton

God gives me a lot of dreams during the night that are revelations into what He is doing or about to do. Last night I had a dream that I initially woke up from and thought, “What was that?!”

At first I just put it aside as a weird dream but as I went to spend time with the Lord this dream came back to me and it became clear that the Lord was showing me something. I hesitated sharing it because it was visually disturbing but God was purposeful in His choice of descriptive pictures therefore I will share it with you as He shared it with me.

In the dream I was taken into a room with a toilet in it. As I stepped into the room this toilet began to back up with solid sewage that I knew was coming from within its tank (not the sewage lines or pipes). It was years worth of waste and this old waste filled the bowl; yet didn’t spill onto the ground (it was contained). I was aware that the tank where it was wrongly being stored was now empty of the waste of old and it could be flushed away. Now it could work properly and give a continual flow of clean water. Waste would go to the proper place. (End of dream)

When I began to spend time with the Lord He revealed to me through this dream that we are now in a sovereign time where trauma, pain, regrets, disappointments, betrayal and wounds of the soul that have remained stored in our souls (our soul tanks) from past events will suddenly be released. As they come to the surface they will not spill out on the floor and negatively affect our lives, homes, relationships and surroundings but they will be contained and washed away from the soul “as far as the east is from the west.” No longer will your soul be a tank filled with wounds or wasted places from the past but it will work for your benefit.

The Lord says, ‘I will give you back what you lost to the swarming locusts, the hopping locusts, the stripping locusts, and the cutting locusts. It was I who sent this great destroying army against you. Once again you will have all the food you want, and you will praise the Lord your God, who does these miracles for you. Never again will my people be disgraced. Then you will know that I am among my people Israel, that I am the Lord your God, and there is no other. Never again will my people be disgraced.’”Joel‬ ‭2:25-27‬ ‭

This is restoration time! It is vindication time and it is time for the wasted years to be restored. I hear Him saying over you,

“No more shame, no more disgrace, no more lack, no more waste!”

The miracles of deliverance are now coming upon you. There is a flushing out of the carcasses of old and the plagues that have swarmed you. God is about to make His name known among all who look upon your life and you will give Him all of the praise for the wonderful work He will do.

“God, your God, will restore everything you lost; he’ll have compassion on you; he’ll come back and pick up the pieces from all the places where you were scattered. No matter how far away you end up, God, your God, will get you out of there and bring you back to the land your ancestors once possessed. It will be yours again. He will give you a good life and make you more numerous than your ancestors. God, your God, will cut away the thick calluses on your heart and your children’s hearts, freeing you to love God, your God, with your whole heart and soul and live, really live.” Deuteronomy 30:3-13

These are His words to you today! The old, wasted places are being washed away and His new and miraculous deliverance is now upon you. He is Restorer, Redeemer and Deliverer. The Lion of Judah is coming upon the land of your life and roaring a command of restoration! The roar literally sounds like the word, “RESTORATION!”

Roar with Him and call forth the restorative work in your life. Agree with His word and echo His roar.

Now is the time!

WANTED!

by Kathi Pelton

As I woke up at exactly 5:55 this morning I saw in my spirit a “WANTED” poster (like those in the old west that were hung up to find criminals). This “wanted poster” had a photo of a baby in the womb upon it and at the bottom it said the word, “ALIVE.” It was if the angels were hanging “Wanted Alive” posters throughout the land.

This is a time in which every social media post that calls to protect the lives of the unborn (or now even the unwanted who are “born alive”) is like the the flood of posters hung throughout the land in the old days to catch a murderer. We are catching the attention of people over and over with declarations and posts that say these babies are WANTED ALIVE!

We are declaring them as wanted by someone— somewhere. They are wanted alive by God! Every person (liberal or conservative) would agree that they are appalled when they hear of a crime where a parent has taken the life of their child. We cannot fathom such a vile crime against innocence at the hand of the one who was to love them most. The betrayal of trust at the hand of a parent is unthinkable. And yet now our nation lights up buildings in celebration of such things! They blithely call it abortion; we call it murder.

I cannot imagine how the recent laws that have been passed to legislate the right for a parent to take the life of their full-term unborn baby will further damage the conscience of mankind. Or the banning of laws that protect a child born alive after an abortion attempt! What kind of depravity has come upon our society that we have placed ourselves as “gods” with the right to make such decisions. We (mankind) were made to be fruitful and multiply and yet we now crush the fruit of our wombs and stand like fruitless trees before our Creator. In the Bible Jesus spoke of cutting down trees that did not bear fruit, but now our nation celebrates the right to cut the fruit out of our wombs. We have been entrusted with these precious little ones and yet we have dehumanized them in the very way that Hitler did the Jews or the KKK did our beautiful African-American brothers and sisters.

God has great and deep compassion for those who are in the grip of fear and pain as they face an unplanned pregnancy, or who live with the pain from a past abortion; and so must we. But this post is not written to them; it is for us as a nation, as the Church (who has been given authority) and to those who have an ear to hear the truth. We cannot stop putting up “posts” or posters that say that babies are WANTED ALIVE!

We also must understand what this declaration of “unwanted babies” releases in the spirit realm. There is already a sense of being “unwanted” by so many people. I am constantly ministering to people who do not understand their value or who feel unwanted. The agreement that our nation and other nations have come into and have made into laws releases a spirit of betrayal, of abandonment, of death, and of suicide into the very atmosphere. It is like saying, “You are unwanted; therefore you should die.”

There are so many couples and families that are longing for a baby!My husband and I adopted our first child and how we wept in joy and in awe when our arms were filled my her beauty. Now, one of our children hasn’t been able to conceive and she and her husband ache for a baby to love and hold. It is so incredibly painful for them—and others like them—to see babies thrown away and discarded like a piece of unwanted trash. They would take them and raise them in loving families in a heartbeat, but apparently for many individuals it is so much easier to just discard these babies and call them tissue.

How is it that we treat our used cans and bottles with more care that these precious living gifts that come from God? We are appalled at the mistreatment of an animal (which we should be!) but we kill our babies and make laws to protect the right to do so.

I am one of those people that cannot watch movies about the Holocaust without being deeply disturbed in my soul for days. I cannot wrap my mind around how anyone can look in the face of a mother and her child or a father and his son and kill them because of their race. I know it is a demonic spirit that comes upon people, but still I cannot imagine such cruelty or hard-heartedness. Yet, here we are doing the very thing to precious and absolutely innocent babies. My heart is broken.

All that I can say is, “God have mercy!” Have mercy upon these babies who are wanted alive. Have mercy upon the ones who have unplanned pregnancies, have mercy upon our nation(s). Have mercy upon mankind!

The Great Power Released Through Praise. Sing Out, “Great Are You Lord!”

by Kathi Pelton

Rare is the time that I am not filled with great courage when I am exalting the Lord! Singing His name and declaring His nature releases an infusion of confident assurance and fearlessness as I am intimately connected to who He is. Worship will lift me from the earthly realm, with all that weighs me down, to the heavenly place that I was created for.

“For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:6

We are seated in heavenly places, united with Christ! The greatness of the Lord is united to us and dwells within us. The God who created the heavens and the earth, who put the stars in the sky and keeps all of the universe working together is united to us. Worship ushers us into that reality and experience. His power and goodness never leaves us or forsakes us but worship causes our souls to join with heavenly truth and from there we declare, “Great are you Lord!”

I think that we often forget the unfathomable and surpassing greatness of our God throughout the hours of the day as we get busy with the mundane tasks. We go out into the world more aware of our weakness then we are of His greatness. There is not a single day, let alone a single second that we are not united to the One who sits upon the throne of grace. All power, all honor, all majesty and all that is in heaven and earth belongs to Him.

Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth…”Matthew 28:18

Yet, this God who holds all creation in His hands and whom all authority belongs to also cares about every detail of our lives. It is beyond comprehension to imagine this truth. How can His love span such vast horizons and still reach down to personally connect with every detail of our individual lives? It leaves me undone to realize that He values me so greatly. It causes me to release the words, “Great are you Lord!” Trying to understand this kind of love is beyond what our greatest moments of imagination can fathom. Our understanding of human love cannot touch this kind of agape love.

How is it that we are intimately united to this King of Glory? Why do we still tremble at the storms of life? How can it be that we still doubt or question if He sees us or knows our needs? This God who holds all things together also holds our lives His hands. I stand in awe in the face of such love and kindness.

Not only does He have authority over all but through this uniting with Him we too have authority. We have His Spirit living in us! This is the very power that raised Jesus from the dead and we are united to the power of His Spirit as well.

That is why we shout, “Great are you, Lord!”. That is why can be brave, courageous and strong…it is because we have been united to Him!

Prophets of Purity

by Kathi Pelton

There is an emerging company of “prophets of purity” who will speak, write, create, dance and sing with an anointing of purity. They will be those who have yielded to the deep preparation of purification. This anointing of purity will break defilement off of people, families and nations. What they release will be like a baptism in water for the recipients as they are saturated with the purity of heaven and the washing of the Spirit. It will restore lives to the fear of the Lord and the holiness of the Lord.

There is a beauty that this purity releases which will reveal Christ in His true (pure) nature;!ushering in the holiness of the Lord. These prophets of purity will witness what they speak, write, create or sing bringing forth the power of the blood of Jesus that washes away sin and stain.

It will be like Zechariah 3 when Joshua the high priest had his filthy garments changed sovereignly. What they release will have the authority, through the purity anointing, to rebuke the accuser and to restore the son or daughter. This will be an anointing that has the power to restore, cleanse and release the glory of the Lord.

The anointing of purity will not come through the works of man or his strength or his goodness but through humility, surrender and from those who have taken the posture of Mary in Luke 1:38 when she is visited by the angel of the Lord announcing that she will conceive a child by the power of the Holy Spirit and she responds by saying, “Be it unto me according to your word.”

There has been a deep testing for these yielded ones. They have faced many trials as an invitation to come into deep humility and purity. They have been refined by fire and bowed down at His feet in the fear of the Lord. There is a posture of praise and the exultation of Jesus that they will walk in and release that continually brings men and women back to the place where they enthrone Jesus in His rightful place…over all and in all.

The purity anointing will bring forth pure oil that can be received by those around them. This pure oil will be the oil that lights the lamps of the five wise virgins in Matthew 25:1-13. Each time they speak, write, create, dance or sing they will present their lives like a white, blank canvas for the Creator of heaven and earth to paint upon as He pleases.

They are submitted servants, teachable children, humble, transparent men and woman who are connected to the body (not independent islands) and who have spent many hours in the place of intercession, worship and the Word. They will live the wisdom written in the Book of Proverbs. This is not a “suddenly” anointing; it must be paid for through preparation and sacrifice. Purity does not come apart from testing and a process. It is different than being washed clean through the forgiveness of Jesus. This “purity anointing” takes time and pressing.

I believe that we have entered a time that we will now see these pure ones revealed and what they carry will benefit the body in ways rarely seen before this time. It goes far beyond gifting! It is an anointing that supersedes even profound giftings.

If you are going through deep testing, fire, purging and preparation; know this…remain in that place! It is His love that desires to purify you so that a fresh outpouring will come to you and through you. Surrender and yield to this work. The crushing will produce pure, fresh oil that anoints you with purity.

Going Deeper

by Kathi Pelton

There is an insatiable thirst that is present in the lives of God’s people that causes them to run after Him with a desperate abandonment. It is like a man on a desert road in the scorching sun who begins to thirst. He will go to any lengths to get a drink and when he finally does he will drink deeply. Thirst is a gift because it causes us to search for Him like a man in search of water. There are times that seem as if the drink that we so desperately desire evades our reach. But it is in those times that room is made in the depths of our souls for drinking deep.

In Luke 5 we find Simon frustrated from a long night of fishing with no results. He is tired, empty handed and though it does not say he was desperate, one can imagine the desperation he felt after having no results or pay off for all of his work. In verse 4 the Lord addresses Simon saying,

“Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch.”

Desperation causes us to do what we wouldn’t do if we had been given what we had wanted in our first attempt. Simon responded to the Lord’s request and went out once again. He threw his nets into the deep waters and found more than he could ask or imagine when he pulled in his nets.

There have been many times in my life when I feel as though I have worked through a long night season only to come up short and it is in those times that the Lord speak similar words to me,

“Daughter, go deeper. Throw yourselves into the depths of My love and watch what you draw in.”

Then, like Simon, who fell on his knees before the Lord, I find myself in a new awareness of how great His love is toward me and I fall on my knees before Him once again. When I once again drink deep of His love I begin to experience the manifestation of Psalm 42:7,

“Deep calls to deep at the sound of Your waterfalls; All Your breakers and Your waves have rolled over me.”

Once again my heart finds courage and I am given a renewed boldness to run after Him knowing that with every step I am drawn into greater depths. I cry out the words from Romans 11:33 that say,

“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!”

Hunger and thirst is a gift. Desperation and pain is a gift. Longing and waiting is a gift. Even hope deferred can be a gift because it is there that we are invited into the deep places and can experience the unsearchable and unfathomable ways of His love. Desire fulfilled is far more beautiful to the desperately thirsty soul than it is to the satisfied soul. He is calling you deeper…and deeper still. Let Him draw you into the deep waters where you will find a love beyond comprehension.

From Hope Deferred to Desire Fulfilled

By Kathi Pelton

It was August of 1987 I was jolted out of a dream—where my greatest desire had been fulfilled—back into the reality of my constant state of hope deferred. In the dream I held my baby daughter. It hadn’t felt like a typical dream; It seemed I had actually been taken somewhere and held my desire fulfilled for the very first time. I had never felt such love or beheld such beauty. When I awoke it was as if she was torn from my arms, and deep waves of grief flooded my soul.  

 

My husband and I had been trying to conceive a baby for years with no success. We had gone through all the medical tests and the problem was with me. I had been going through fertility treatments for over two years at that point, with no sign of improvement. I’d often find myself wondering why so many women who didn’t want their babies or who considered them “disposable” could conceive but my husband and I, who ached for a baby, were left barren. I knew God had not abandoned us but I did not see His plan in this. 

 

Four months after my beautiful dream, we received a call from a pastor who had recently counseled a fifteen-year-old mother; four months earlier she had given birth prematurely to a little girl and this mother wanted to give her up for adoption. The pastor had heard that we wanted a baby but were unable to conceive, and the Lord put it on his heart to call us and ask if we were interested in adopting this little girl. 

 

We were overwhelmed with excitement and immediately said “yes!” Although it took nine months from the day of that phone call to walk out the miraculous story of getting our daughter, not only did we get to bring her home just before her first birthday, but I was four months pregnant when we did! We found out that she was born the same month I had the dream of holding my baby daughter, and the name that her young birth mother gave her meant “longed for” or “desired one.”

 

Now, thirty years later, I am watching our youngest daughter and her husband face the same pain. After years of trying to conceive a child they are in that painful grip of hope deferred. I see the pain in their eyes and the helpless struggle that her husband feels to comfort his wife as she silently aches inside. As her mom, I keenly understand the pain, the constant ache, and the many thoughts of “Why?”

 

The beauty of my story of adoption and the pain of my daughter’s journey of hope deferred made the recent news of the late-term abortion bill in New York State that much more of a sting. The issue has been before us for decades, but for whatever reason this particular ruling has acted as a tripwire that woke many out of the spiritual stupor of prayerlessness. It ignited a burning desire to see this horrific, defiling waste of life stop. 

 

As I prayed the Lord showed me that the church has been in a continuous “ebb and flow” of prayer regarding the issue of abortion. With every ebb the enemy would take that time to advance his agenda to kill the sons and daughters of tomorrow. His deceptions and lies would advance his cause to rob God, and rob the world, of the very inheritance the Son died for. Each year nearly sixty million abortions occur worldwide. Sixty million! 

 

If that fifteen-year-old girl had given into the “ease” of solving her unwanted pregnancy through abortion, our daughter would not exist. That beautiful baby that fulfilled my greatest longing would have been merely a statistic that only our God truly grieved for. 

 

Most abortions are not performed on teens, but rather women in their young twenties. If only they knew that what they carried in their wombs could fill the arms of a couple that longed to cherish and love a son or daughter! If only they understood that even before this child’s conception, God dreamed of this life, made plans for this life, and knew this life  intimately. 

 

If only we, as His people, had stopped to pray. 

 

Something has happened, and it has awakened the church and awakened women to rise up and fight for these little lives that cannot fight for themselves. Their mothers have been blinded and deceived by the enemy of God, the deceiver who has written a different narrative telling our culture that a life is not a life until it is outside of the womb. God forgive us for our prayerlessness and for not facing the evil giant called abortion. 

 

Together we are now going as one, in the power of His might and the name of His Son, to face this giant until it is defeated. No more ebb and flow, but rather a continuous flow of resurrection power coming from those who have received LIFE!  May the word adoption replace abortion and may hope deferred be replaced by desires fulfilled. 

Choose life!

The Breakthrough Challenge

By Kathi Pelton

Many years ago the Lord began to teach me how to deal with the circumstances that hit all of our lives that produce stress and anxiety and cause our thoughts to be fixed on the things of earth. He challenged me to “take Him at His Word!” Then He led me to Philippians 4:6-7 which says,

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

He then broke it down for me in order to teach me how to live from heaven to earth rather than earth to heaven. First He highlighted the words, “Be anxious for nothing.” My thought at the time was, “Wow, thanks for starting with the hard part!”

But then He said that the key for being anxious for nothing was in verse 7 which reads,

“…and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

He showed me a vision of His peace being placed over my heart (soul) and mind (thoughts). Since anxiety is rooted in our thoughts and emotions first—causing our bodies to react—I realized how much sense this made. I began to pray each day, sometimes numerous times a day, for His peace to guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus.

Then I went before my Prince of Peace and through prayer and supplication made my requests known. Supplication is merely the act of humble and earnest asking. Some definitions of supplication call it “begging” but I discovered that in the absence of anxiety and the presence of peace, it remained a humble posture of asking. Begging is tied to anxiety and doubt that the one receiving the request will respond.

Lastly and most importantly, “…with thanksgiving!” We don’t enter into thanksgiving only when we see results, but we enter into thanksgiving by faith and because He is worthy of all of our thanks. We finish our personal prayer for breakthrough in both peace and praise. It’s like a holy sandwich…prayer and supplication held together by peace and thanksgiving!

These two verses transformed my life! Discovering a life of peace in a world of trials and tribulations changed everything. It didn’t happen overnight but as I took the Lord’s challenge to “take Him at His Word” it caused His Word to become a part of who I am and it rewired my emotions and my mind to be aligned with peace, prayer, and thanksgiving. Every time I find myself feeling the weight of circumstances or experiencing the rumblings of anxious thoughts I go back to praying daily for His peace to be the guard upon my heart and mind. Then I take my requests humbly before Him and spend the rest of my time in thanks and praise. I honestly see amazing breakthroughs in my life and around my life because I have taken Him at His Word and it never comes back void!

Today will you enter into this breakthrough challenge? Will you take Him at His Word and apply it to your life until it becomes a part of who you are? If you do you will mark this day as the day that you began to live in peace and continual breakthrough.

Do Not Let Another Day Go By!

My husband and I were urged by the Lord and a company of international believers to write this book. It was birthed out of the heart of God to see His people come into a greater “oneness with Christ” through the act of yieldedness and surrender.

Every word and every page that was written in this book is straight from His heart. Do not let another day of 2019 go by without reading His invitation into a life of surrender.
