Breathe Deep!

 Kathi Pelton

I remember during the birth of my first baby I was overwhelmed by the pain and pressure. I would try to tolerate the pain by holding my breath. My husband would repeat through every contraction,

“Honey, just breathe.” 

When the contraction would finally end he’d say,

“Breathe deep.” 

Life can be a bit like labor; there are times of pain and times of rest. Through it all we must remember to breathe.  

During trying times I still will find myself holding my breath and yet I know that there is life in breath. 

Today I heard the Spirit say,

“I am blowing upon the lives of my children a breath of new life.”

There is no need to hold your breath in fear or self-protection. He is asking you to breathe and “breathe deep”. You cannot receive this breath of life if you are holding your breath or guarding your heart. He will protect you, heal you, restore you and give you abundant life. 

There is breath and life in His presence. There is a wind that refreshes and blows away the darkness within the arms of His unfailing love. There is an atmosphere of joy that will cause you to arise again. 

Exhale and then breathe in deeply. Receive the breath of His love, His mercy and His goodness.

“For the Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.” Job 33:4

Past Traumas Are Being Healed and Joy Is Being Restored

Kathi Pelton

Recently my husband and I were praying over friends that had been abused by a church leadership for many years. As we prayed I became aware of an angel standing over them holding a large water jar (pitcher) that was being pouring a Heavenly liquid upon them. 

I was taken by surprise because I had encountered this very angel seventeen years earlier. It had appeared while I was with a dear friend who had experienced a traumatic loss in her life. It appeared with the same jar (pitcher) and was pouring a liquid substance over her as well.

The Angel of Healing

This angel is an angel of healing and restoration. The liquid being poured out was a mixture of healing water along with the oil of joy. The healing water had been drawn from Heavenly healing pools. Then it was mixed with the oil of joy. It would not only heal but it would restore joy. 

I knew that this angel had once again come to wash away trauma as well as restore (heal) the areas that trauma had wounded and left scars. 

The angels of healing are being commissioned in response to the cries of the children of God.

“I will exalt you, Lord, for you rescued me. You refused to let my enemies triumph over me. O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you restored my health. You brought me up from the grave, O Lord. You kept me from falling into the pit of death.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭30:1-3‬ ‭

Cycles of Trauma 

As this angel was in our midst I saw a paper appear before my eyes with these words upon it,

“Trauma produces fear, fear produces triggers, triggers produce reactions and reactions produce more trauma.”

It becomes a vicious cycle that wounds and re-wounds the soul and causes people to live in a continual state of trauma, fear, triggers and reactions.

God is breaking this cycle by sending angels of healing and restoration to pour this heavenly liquid over wounded souls. 

These angels are dipping the jars in the healing pools and the oil of joy is being mixed in even now. November and December will be months of healing and the restoration of joy for many of God’s children.

Invite the Angel to Come

I believe that the Father is asking you to invite these angels of healing to come to you and pour this healing substance over your body and soul. You do not have to see the angel; your faith is all that is needed. You will begin to experience healing from past traumas and all the fear and reactions that have been attached to them. 

This is a divine reset from a loving Father who does not want His children living with trauma and the cycles that occur when those traumas mark the soul.

“He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭147:3‬ ‭

Joy Comes After Mourning

You will begin to experience joy once again. There are seasons of mourning but God wants you to know that as the darkness of trauma is washed away, light will come like a new day to renew you with joy.

“You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy, that I might sing praises to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!”‭‭ Psalms‬ ‭30:11-12‬ ‭

Joy will come as the wounds are healed. It will surely come…as surely as the morning. 

“…Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.”‭‭ Psalms‬ ‭30:5‬b

Healing angels are awaiting your invitation to come and pour healing over your body and soul. Their jars are filled with Heavenly healing that will restore your soul and bring the light of morning after a long night of pain. The oil of joy will pour over you as it is mixed with the water that heals. 

“…and provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.”  Isaiah 61:3

Now is the time for your healing! 

If my writings have encouraged you, give a gift of thanksgiving to our ministry. I hear this verse over you,

“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38

Nothing Has Been Wasted

         

~~Kathi Pelton

Our life stories have been filled with highs and lows, gains and losses, beauty and ashes, as well as joy and sorrows. In all of the stories that have created the seasons of our lives, God wants you to know this one thing,

“Nothing has been wasted.”

He is the Redeemer! The beautiful stories that have been written upon the pages of my life have been greatly enhanced by His touch and the tragic stories that been written upon the pages of my life have been powerfully redeemed by His touch.His faithfulness has remained true and steadfast through it all. 

Nothing has been wasted. 

Today was one of those days that I experienced moment of redemption regarding a loss experienced many years ago. As time has gone by I have learned to rest and wait upon His beauty to come forth even from among the ashes. In time His beauty appears in the most unlikely of places. Though He was not the author of our pain, He is the author of the beauty that comes forth from it.

Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11

We can not escape the reality that there are days of pain and sorrow but we can embrace the truth that in the midst of those pages, we have been given hope that beauty will be restored. There is great comfort that we can go into the beautiful chamber of His love even in times when our soul feels cast down and covered in ash.

On days where it seems that this world speaks a resounding message of hopelessness through adverse circumstances; we know that just like when Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead when every hope had gone into the grave with him or when the disciples saw Jesus feed 5000 people with only enough food for a small boy; we will see His power displayed in our lives. He will resurrect, multiply, feed, fill and then there will be twelve baskets more than we began with. All of your losses, when placed in the faithful care of Jesus, are redeemed, restored and always multiplied beyond expectation.

As most of my readers know, my family has experienced many natural fires. We’ve lost homes and lived through a terrifying firestorm. Now, our home city of Santa Rosa has experienced the worst firestorm we’ve ever heard of. Our past losses will now prove to bring the beauty of hope to the friends and family in that area that have lost so much. Nothing has been wasted. Our past pain will be present comfort to those who can’t see past the ashes. Our loaf and fish wil now be multiplied to feed and give hope to many. As we offer what we have in our hand to Jesus, He uses it to feed many. We have seen the beauty come forth in our own journey with fire and loss and now we can take the beautiful redemption of our story and plant those seeds in many lives. 

Your story has nothing wasted when planted in the soil of our Redeemer. 

To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”  Isaiah 61:3

It will all be beautiful in time! Whatever your story is…offer it to Him. Offer the ashes, offer the beauty, offer the mourning, offer the joy, offer the despair and offer the praise. What is offered to the Lord will be resurrected and multiplied to help many more than you can ever imagine. Offer Him your story…He will use every part of it and nothing will be wasted.

Give a financial offering into our ministry today and watch the miracle of multiplication happen for you. To give, go to:

God is Restoring Honor

Kathi Pelton

Last night I was having a conversation with friends about the power of honoring one another. If there is one thing that I have learned throughout my years of walking with Jesus, it is that He always honors me. He has never treated me according to the flesh but honored who He created me to be and has treated me according to that identity. When He sees me, He sees me through the eyes of honor…this is my true reality.

Many years ago I began a journey of discovering how He sees people. This journey changed everything for me. It was like receiving a pair of glasses that changed my eyes from seeing the distorted dishonor that the enemy puts upon lives to seeing the clear and honoring way that our God views another. 

As we begin to see others the way that He sees them, it causes us to treat them with honor. Honor will always lifts up the one who has felt cast down.

When I was 14 years old I was already living out all sorts of evil that years of dishonor had defined in my life with. I am so grateful that a man at my high school saw me the way that Jesus saw me. He treated me with honor and it was those actions that eventually led me to Jesus.

Here are truths about dishonor and honor:

• Dishonor drags a person down where honor lifts them up. 

• Dishonor exposes nakedness and honor covers shame.

• Dishonor weakens and honor strengthens

• Dishonor imprisons a man and honor sets him free 

• Dishonor establishes a lie and honor restores God’s truth. 

• Dishonor divides a man from God and honor reconciles him to God.

There are so many more!

The culture of honor is the Kingdom culture that we must treat all men by. As we honor someone according the image that they were created in we actually begin to call forth “Christ in them”. We honor Christ as we honor others. Honor redefines the way someone sees themselves and gives them courage to live that truth out. 

Whether it is a family member or a friend, a stranger on the street or a clerk in a store, a rich man or poor man, a political leader or church leader, a child or the elderly…all need to experience honor. Honor is to be shown even if it is not deserved because that is what Jesus gave to us (and still gives to us). 

I pray that the eyes of the God’s people will be fully opened to see what Jesus sees. I pray that the actions of the God’s people will be aligned with the honor of the Kingdom of God that knows that all men are created in the image of Christ. I pray that the mouth of 

God’s people would speak words of life and honor over lives that have been defined by dishonor. I pray that you will see yourself with the eyes of honor. 

One of the favorite sayings in our church are the words from Hebrews 12:24,

“…the blood of Jesus speaks a better word…”

Let’s speak the better word to all who cross our paths today and may honor be found upon every step you take and every word that you speak. Today I declare upon your life the better word that the blood of Jesus has spoken…

“You were created to be honored and to release honor.”

  
Amen~

Release the Sound of Reformation


Kathi Pelton

As I prayed for our nation and for the nations I heard the Spirit say,

“I’m taking back the sound!” 

Then He went on to say,

“The sound of the ‘resounding gong’ will cease and be stilled as the sound of My love is released into the land, the people and the atmosphere. Release the sound of the height, depth and width of My love. It is the sound that stills the storms and brings forth peace.”

“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3:16-20‬ ‭

Yesterday at our church God was releasing a word about walking as “friends of God”. As this word was released I began to see the Church not only walk with the voice of truth but they took the hand of Truth (The Way, the Truth and the Life) and walked in friendship with Him. I saw it reversing historic divisions and restoring relationships between families, people groups and nations. It was changing a sound within the fabric of cities and nations.

Many of our forefathers brought truth without love which became like the sound of a resounding gong or a hammer that strikes the heart and wounds it. Watch now, a love reformation has begun. 

“If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:1-3‬ 

Sacrifice apart from love results in loss, truth apart from love is merely knowledge and prophecy apart from love is only a loud noise. But love is found in intimacy and intimacy begins with friendship. We must be friends with God in order to discover the love spoken of in Ephesians 3. 

Most healthy marriages I know began in friendship. If they skipped that formative step then they usually had to return to that place and develop it in order to experience true intimacy. Walking hand in hand together is where friendship is developed. There is a closeness of spending time together, sharing hearts, listening and journeying together that creates intimacy. 

And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.” He was even called the friend of God.

James 2:23

I have a friend that I have walked closely with for 35 years now. We dated our husbands at the same time, we married the same year, we raised our children together (we were even at their births), we walked through celebrations, losses, joys and pain together. We are very different people but we walked as sisters in deep friendship which resulted in intimacy and love. We committed to friendship even at times when our family lived in another nation. It was a commitment that was founded in friendships and kept in the bounds of love. Though we are very different we share one thing that is the same…love.

Just like marriage, friendship requires agreement and commitment. Agreement to stand together and walk hand in hand even when it is tough. This is the love that needs to be seen and heard in the land and experienced in hearts. 

“Many waters cannot quench love, nor can rivers drown it. If a man tried to buy love with all his wealth, his offer would be utterly scorned.” 

Songs of Solomon 8:7

Now is the time to take the outstretched hand of Jesus and walk in friendship. Love is the sound and language that all men understand and it will birth unity, intimacy and dispel fear.

Love is the defining “sound of reformation”! Reformation means making changes to something with the intention of setting it back on the right path. As we recognize the 500 year anniversary on October 31st of the great reformation we need to understand that God is doing it again. This reformation will carry a sound and that sound will be the height, depth and width of His love.

Take His hand, be like Abraham and walk with God as a friend. Let love grow, mature and release the sound of love. 

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever!”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4-8‬ ‭

The Power of Agreement

Kathi Pelton

Agreement is a powerful tool in both earthly and heavenly matters. Agreement is the vehicle by which ideas become legally binding and differences are reconciled.

The dictionary defines agreement in this way:

Agreement:

1. Harmony or accordance in opinion or feeling; a position or result of agreeing.

2. A negotiated and typically legally binding arrangement between parties as to a course action.

3. The absence of incompatibility between two things; consistency.

The power of agreement has resulted in treaties that were signed, covenants made and unions formed. Throughout the Bible we read about agreements that resulted in treaties and covenants. Scripture is quite clear about how much God honors agreement between two parties.

Matthew 18:19-20

“Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”

Agreement About You

If there is so much power in the agreement between two people on Earth, just think about how much power there is when you come into agreement with the spiritual realm, whether with God, or with the enemy.

Our family spent a number of years being a home for foster teens and we’ve walked with deeply wounded young people. Along life’s journey these teenagers came into agreement that they were “less than” or “worthless”. This agreement became their belief which then allowed their lives to be defined by tragedy and loss. 

Somewhere deep inside they knew that the message of being worthless was not true, yet life had beaten that demonic lie into the fabric of their identity. The enemy had used the events in their lives as proof of the lie, creating agreement between them and the demonic agenda that was being.

One of the enemy’s greatest strategies is to get one of God’s amazing creations to agree with an identity that is different than the one that He gave to them. The enemy takes great pleasure in setting up scenarios that give proof to his lies. Demons love to hang out with hurting and disillusioned people to speak lies about their identity. If he can get them to agree with his lies, then power is released creating legal authority or a contractual agreement to go forward with his plans of destruction.

Has this ever happened to you or someone you love? Have you ever come into agreement with the demonic voices that want to convince you that you are not who God has said you are? Have you spoken words like, “I am so stupid”, “My life stinks”…or even worse? Those are agreements with the enemy that release power and a basis for accusation and harassment.

Breaking Demonic Agreements

There is good news if you have agreed with the enemy about your life or the life of someone else. YOU CAN BREAK THAT AGREEMENT.

It is not too late to change the course of your life and remove every legal right that this agreement has secured. You can go before the Righteous Judge and ask forgiveness for this agreement, renounce the agreement, break the power of the legal right and then come into agreement with truth and justice on your behalf and on behalf of others.

The Mercy Seat of God is open to you. The blood of Jesus will both cleanse and renew you. He purchased you with His own blood, and has triumphed over every evil power and all accusations against you. The power of His Spirit will set you free from any alliances you have made with lies against your true identity.

In Isaiah 30, God speaks about His people being deceived into entering into an alliance with a plan of the enemy, because they had not asked His counsel, that they might know His truth.

Isaiah 30:1-5

Ah, stubborn children,” declares the LORD, “who carry out a plan, but not mine, and who make an alliance, but not of my Spirit, that they may add sin to sin; who set out to go down to Egypt, without asking for my direction, to take refuge in the protection of Pharaoh and to seek shelter in the shadow of Egypt!

Therefore shall the protection of Pharaoh turn to your shame, and the shelter in the shadow of Egypt to your humiliation. For though his officials are at Zoan and his envoys reach Hanes, everyone comes to shame through a people that cannot profit them, that brings neither help nor profit, but shame and disgrace.”

Drop down to verse 18, and read of God’s desire to intervene on their behalf.

“Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.”

It is time to allow the Lord to be gracious to you and restore you. His justice flows to those who make His truth the only agreement and alliance that they enter into.

Agreeing with Truth

Isaiah 30 goes on to list the results you will see when you break the alliance with every demonic lie and come into agreement with His truth and His ways.

Isaiah 30:23-26

And he will give rain for the seed with which you sow the ground, and bread, the produce of the ground, which will be rich and plenteous. In that day your livestock will graze in large pastures, and the oxen and the donkeys that work the ground will eat seasoned fodder, which has been winnowed with shovel and fork. And on every lofty mountain and every high hill there will be brooks running with water, in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. Moreover, the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day when the LORD binds up the brokenness of his people, and heals the wounds inflicted by his blow.

The Lord says to us, “This is the way, walk in it” (verse 21).

Walk in truth! Agree with truth! Speak truth! Who does the LORD say you are? Who does He say the person standing next to you is? Agree with that identity, even if the enemy wants to give “proof” of the opposite in this visible world. It is time for us to agree with the truth of the unseen and bring it down to Earth. There is power in agreement. When you agree with the truth of the Lord it releases the power of the Spirit. You agree with the legal right of Heaven to come to Earth. When you bring another into this agreement along with you it releases even more power.

I encourage you today to break all alliances and agreements with lies and to enter into truth. You are amazing, you are brilliant, you are loved and of great value. Wait for the Lord for He will restore all things as you come into agreement with His truth and walk in it.

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Say Amen and come into agreement with what God says today!

The Father Desires to Lavish You in His Love

Kathi Pelton

I was taken into an experience in which I became keenly aware of a deep longing of our Heavenly Father to lavish His love upon His children. 

I was able to feel the depth of His love and to sense the longing for His children to experience His love for each of them as individuals. 

Remember, He loves you so much that He gave His Son as a ransom for your life. Sometimes we forget that He still loves us today that much! The Father lavished us with His best (His Son) and He has not stopped. The enemy works hard to convince God’s people that their Father wants to withhold from them or even that He is angry with them. But His love never changes and He has never regretted giving His beloved Son. 

It is time to fully believe that He longs to lavish you with His love. He will never withhold from you and His love never has changed. Though He has compassion on His children, it is not pity that causes Him to bless you…IT IS LOVE! 

Reject every thought that your Father withholds from you or is angry with you. Of course He grieves when His children doubt or question the depths of His love, just as any father would grieve. He is overjoyed when we believe and trust that His love is limitless and extravagant. This joy provokes His love to pour out like rain upon His children.

“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” 1 John 3:1

It’s time to expect the great love of your Father to be lavished upon you!

This is Who You Are! The Transformation of “Christ in You” is Now Upon You

Kathi Pelton

Many years ago I was with a young man that was just coming to know the Lord. His life had been visited time and time again with great loss and disappointment. He had not been able to process the losses in his life or receive the comfort he greatly needed. This caused a build up of rage that would continually have to be released. One day as this build up was spilling out I asked the Lord what to do and He said,

Tell him, “This is not who you are.”

I looked into the eyes of this young man, who was full of pain and rage, and said the words the Lord asked me to say, 

“This is not who you are!”

Then from my mouth I began to speak the truth of whoGod says that he is. Then I took him in my arms and held him like a mother would hold their own child until the rage turned to tears and the comfort that his soul longed for was finally realized. 

I am sharing this story because the enemy has been trying to stir up areas in people’s lives that have not been fully redeemed; they have not been comforted in times of loss and trauma. We were created to give and receive comfort and compassion. When a person does not receive nurturing and comfort in these times it will often turn into strongholds of control, aggression and rage. 

If you are dealing with these strong emotions and reactions as you see the world around you in all kinds of chaos, the Lord want you to know,

“This is not who you are!” 

I declare over you that your true identity is found in the identity of Jesus Christ. You were created in His image and you carry within you peace, love, joy, compassion, beauty and self-control.

For God has not given us a spirit of cowardice, but of power, and of love, and of self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7

I declare power, love and self-control over your life and into your soul. I speak the release of comfort over the areas of traumas and wounds that have left you feeling out of control. I declare His breath of life now to come upon you and blow away the darkness that has overshadowed who you truly are. And lastly, I declare compassion, peace, forgiveness and hope into you even now. 

You were created to walk, speak and live in the character of Christ. Though the enemy stirs the waters of strife, you were created to merely touch those waters and bring peace to those around you. When people around you scream out in rage, who will dare to tell them,

“This is not who you are.” 

The people of God are to be the ones who bring peace, the ones who bring words of hope and life, the very ones who bring Christ to a world that is out of control. We must be renewed and allow Christ to be formed within us. 

God wanted his people throughout the world to know the glorious riches of this mystery-which is Christ living in you, giving you the hope of glory.  Colossians 1:27

It is vital that, as God’s people, we allow our minds to be renewed. We must meditate and dwell on who He is, what is pure and what is worthy. The enemy stirs up storms to get people fixated on what he is orchestrating which merely creates a greater wind of adversity. We have been given authority over these “winds of adversity” by the Spirit who lives within us and transforms us into the very image of Christ. Then we truly become light in the darkness and peace in the storm.

I love this renewal verse from the Amplified Bible,

Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart].  Philippians 4:8

This is a key verse for transformation. You will not only have your mind renewed as you think continually on these things, but you will posture yourself to receive comfort, compassion and healing from past events that have distorted your character and identity. Power, love and self-control (a sound mind) will come upon you. 

Finally…forgive those who persecute you and do not judge so that you are not judged by that same harsh standard. If you follow the words below, they will set you free,

“But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you.

“If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.  Luke 6:27-36

“But to you who are listening…” 

We must listen and obey. God’s people must allow their lives to be transformed by His Word of truth. These are the mysteries that unlock the Kingdom of God to come to the Earth. These are the mysteries, that when lived out, bring healing and transformation to those around us. It is all upside down in the systems of this world and the hearts of men apart from God. We are called to listen and then to live in God’s truth which puts us “right side up”

THIS IS WHO YOU ARE! 

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.  1 Peter 2:9

We have entered the time that we must yield to the work of Christ being formed within our lives. The enemy fears this more than anything else because it is the key to bringing light into the darkness. We have entered the time of transition or the time of birthing. This is the time where the sons and daughters are being revealed…creation has yearned and groaned for this day. It is as if a deep labor has come upon many to birth the transformation and reformation that will usher in the great harvest and ultimately the return of Christ. The pressure you feel comes from the push to give birth to becoming true sons and daughters. 

For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are.  Romans 8:19

You are birthing who you are and who the sons and daughters of God are. You are laboring for the transformation and revelation of Christ in us…the hope of glory.

According to Ellicott’s Bible Commentary the hope of glory is this,

“The glory” is the glorified state of perfection in heaven, wrapt in the communion with God, and so “changed from glory to glory.”

The fullness of the metamorphosis (transformation) is upon the sons and daughters of God. There is pressure in the birthing and transformation…yield to truth, to the mystery of His Word and allow Christ to be birthed within you. 

Again…this is who you are and who you were created to be!

Weep With Those Who Weep

Kathi Pelton

Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Romans 12:15



With so many natural disasters and horrific events like what we witnessed in Las Vegas it’s tempting to try to encourage someone too soon when the more important thing to do is to merely “weep with those who weep”. 

As our home city of Santa Rosa, California is even now going through unimaginable loss of life, homes and even the landmarks and scenery that make the city “Home” it is time to weep. Take the time to just hold someone, to look in their eyes with deep compassion, to listen and to merely be there. Love is the greatest encouragement that you can give.

When you meet someone who is hurting or grieving, be slow to speak and long to embrace.

Words can’t fill the loss but love can comfort the heart. I have no doubt that Jesus was a good listener. Compassion flowed from Him and healed those that He passed by as well as those that He sat with. He is still listening and still comforting today. The Spirit is often called the The Comforter, let Him move through you with ears to hear and arms to hold. Let compassion flow forth from your life into those who are hurting. Let your eyes weep as He weeps with the grieving. 

There will be time for encouraging words and even understanding, but in the moment of pain, love in action is the message we must live out. Rejoicing will come again and we will dance with the very ones that today we mourn with. There are seasons where we learn the art of comforting and weeping; those tears become the water in which beauty arises from the ashes. 

Today, wherever you are and whatever you are facing; especially for our family and friend in Santa Rosa and the surrounding areas, this is my prayer for you,

“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3:16-20‬ ‭

If I could, even now I would hold you. 

We will be reaching out to help those who have lost homes in the Santa Rosa area. To donate go to:

The God of “More than Enough” is Replacing Your Lack with His Abundance 

Kathi Pelton

Today I hear the Lord saying,

“Tell my people that I am the God of more than enough.” 

He is coming upon lives, circumstances and families that need this supernatural “more than enough” to take them from lack or need to the manifestation of abundance. 

Enter into worship and thank Him that He is reversing lack with more than enough. Declare it over your life and family…”He is more than enough!” His “more” is about to overtake your lack or need. 

Peace will wash away worries, wisdom will replace confusion and joy will overtake sorrows. Even in the places of your life that you have regrets, God is causing broken pieces to fit back together. What the enemy meant for evil God will turn for good. 

God’s compassion is flowing from His Throne of Mercy and Grace. His compassion releases healing and His compassion overtakes all lack that has held you down. You will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. His favor upon your life will lead you into new victories and will open doors and new opportunities for you. 

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”‭‭ Ephesians‬ ‭3:20‬ ‭
