Watch As Goodness and Mercy Are Poured Over Your Life

Kathi Pelton

Today the Spirit of the Lord showed me a picture of a liquid substance being poured over the heads of His sons and daughters. As it was being poured great joy was coming upon them. Then I heard the words from Psalm 23:6(a)

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…”

The liquid substance was His goodness and mercy being poured out in great abundance over our lives!

The verse the proceeds this one (verse 5) says,

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭23:5‬ ‭

This is a “cup running over time”. You will see and experience His goodness and His mercy being poured over your life and you will feast upon the fruits of what He has done for you!

You will shout, “Come and see what the Lord has done, the amazing things he has done on the earth.” Psalm 46:8

Not only will He display His goodness and mercy in the lives of His people but the Lord will show Himself as “God of the Nations” in the days ahead. Though there will be shakings and clashes within nations, the Lord will subdued enemies and bare His mighty arm of power to do what only He can do.

We will be witnesses of the sovereignty of God in the days ahead. Posture yourself in that truth and apply your faith to His sovereign ability to do what no man can do; for you and for nations. Look beyond the natural and see how the arm of the Lord is reaching into the earthly impossibles to show His goodness and mercy.

Look up and receive the outpouring of goodness and mercy. Let the joy of this gift revive you and fill you into new life. Allow your cup of thankfulness to overflow as He causes your cup to overflow with favor and blessings.

Stay In The Moment

Kathi Pelton

There were so many things that I have learned throughout the past years as the Lord continually goes deeper and aligns my life with the plumb line of heaven. One of the most amazing things has been a simple and foundational truth that was somehow not being lived out in my daily journey to the full degree that the Lord desired.

That truth comes in this simple phrase,

“Stay in the moment!”

The Bible speaks of this in many different ways,

““So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” Matthew‬ ‭6:34‬

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians‬ ‭4:6-7‬

“Then, turning to his disciples, Jesus said, “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food to eat or enough clothes to wear. For life is more than food, and your body more than clothing. Look at the ravens. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for God feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than any birds! Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? And if worry can’t accomplish a little thing like that, what’s the use of worrying over bigger things? “Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?” Luke‬ ‭12:22-28‬ ‭

In the “seen” or natural world I could easily find so much to worry about; and for many years I did just that! What a waste of time and joy. The enemy, who is a thief, takes great pleasure in casting shadows upon God’s people in hopes that they will abandon His peace and promises and take up the heavy yoke of worry. Whether it be finances, jobs, health or relationships, he comes to attack the natural areas seeking to disrupt the spiritual areas. If we begin to focus on the problems we will lose faith and let go of the peace and grace that today offers through faith.

I personally had a number of things throughout 2018 that could have easily stolen my peace (which is one of the greatest gifts the Lord has given me!). Each time the enemy would come to “cast a dark shadow” on a natural circumstance I’d hear the Lord whisper to me,

“Kathi, stay in the moment; remain in Me.”

As I allowed the Spirit of the Lord to reign my thoughts and heart back into the moment, His peace would flood me and guard my heart and mind (Philippians 4:7). If I ever allowed my mind to wander into the shadows I would immediate loose my peace and meet a spirit called “dread”. Dread holds hands with fear and the result for those caught in their trap is panic and anxiety.

God has called us to stay in the moment, stay in the day and stay in His peace. This is how we remain in Him. In that place you will hear His whisper of instruction and you will apprehend faith through prayer and praise. Peace will flood you once again.

There was a particular situation that I was facing in the latter months of 2018 that “in the natural” could have caused great anxiety and worry. Each time the enemy would extend his hand to offer me worry and to cause my mind to wander down his dark path, I’d once again hear the Lord speak, “Trust me daughter and stay in the moment.”

When the situation that I was facing finally materialize, there was almost immediately provision for every need that stood before me. Had I allowed my heart to worry about tomorrow it would have wasted two months of my life. Instead of allowing dread and fear to rule my soul, I allowed my faith to be joined with His peace and promises which did not fail me!

We can make our needs known to Him through pray but then we must enter into the thanksgiving that He has heard us and will answer us. Dread and fear are a killer of faith and peace and where there is no peace there is no joy.

I encourage you to make 2019 a year that you train your soul to “stay in the moment!” Remain in peace, in rest and in the confident assurance of His provision for tomorrow. Remain in Him! Put worry under your feet and let His peace guard your heart and mind.

He is forever faithful!

Christmas Blessing

On that bright night, so long ago in Bethlehem, the Savior of the world came to us in the form of a tiny baby. He was born to a young Jewish girl who began the high honor of being the mother of the long awaited Messiah with the words,

“Be it unto me according to your word.”

Her words of surrender made a way for the ultimate surrender; His life. His existence on earth began with her surrender and ended with his surrender.

Today, we honor the legacy of Mary by continuing a posture of surrendering our all to the One who gave His all for us. His “all” ushered us into freedom from sin, death and captivity. Our surrender allows us to enter into the fullness of that freedom.

What a joy to be grafted into the bloodline of that baby who changed the world at the moment of his conception as his young, virgin mother spoke the words that now rest on our lips,

“Be it unto me according to your word.”

The stars that shone so bright on that night still light up our darkness and announce that a Savior has been born unto us. The angels that witnessed the birth of our Messiah still today sing,

“Glory to God in the highest, and peace, goodwill to man.”

Let us join in with their song and give our lives as an offering to Him. Let us bring the very thing that He came and died for…you and me.

How can we say thank you for this gift that cost His all? By holding nothing back! If there is anything that has been held back in your life or heart today go and lay it at His feet. He takes every offering and breathes life and salvation upon them. Every offering becomes blessed when surrendered to Jesus.

I bless you this Christmas with my prayers that you will have courage and grace to offer your all. It is the gift He paid for and that will come back upon you abundantly more than you could ever ask or imagine.

Merry Christmas and Glory to God in the Highest…peace and goodwill upon you and your household!

With Love~ Kathi Pelton and the entire Pelton Family

He Invites You To “Come In” and Rest

Kathi Pelton

As we move into the chilly days of fall and winter there tends to be a greater desire to experience the “comforts of home”. A crackling fire, a warm blanket, dim lights, a hot beverage and the comfort of being surrounded by those we love. Although we get precious moments like these that bring great comfort, the majority of our time is spent working, preparing meals, driving in traffic, cleaning and paying bills.

As I sat down to spend time with the Lord this morning I remembered a photo of our home from a couple of years ago. It was taken as we walked into our front door after returning from a long ministry trip. The warmth and light of “home” (see picture above) was almost overwhelming. It was one of those moments that catches you off guard and immediately fills you with welcome, comfort and love.

This morning as I sat down to be with Jesus I saw Him in this very same way. The door of His heart was open and inside was beauty, light, comfort and love. Peace flooded me as I stepped inside of the secret place where I could rest in His arms. Within His heart there was no demands, no lack, no burden…just warmth and beauty. Today He wasn’t opening up with any expectation except to be together.

Though there are times where the secret place becomes a place where we share His burdens through deep intercession and receive wisdom and strategies for the days ahead; there are also days that He merely invites us to sit before the fire of His love and drink of His lovingkindness. He sets a meal of kindness for us to feast upon and He blankets us with comfort that remains; surrounding us with the welcome of heaven.

For me, today is one of those time. I see Him inviting you into His heart where a “living room” awaits full of the comforts of His love. He will be your holy escape from the chill of the day and He will warm you with all of His goodness. He is not just a comforter for those who grieve but He is also the comforter that gives us a place of home and rest from the busy and fast paced world that we live in.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

He is inviting you today to “Come in.” The door of His heart is open.

This Is How We Pray For Our Nation To See The Victory

Kathi Pelton

“…for I will give you utterance and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute.” Luke 21:15

When enemies rise up against you or against those who stand for righteousness; the Lord will fill your mouth with words and wisdom that silence your foes! Many have arisen to stand as enemies against the righteousness of God and His people who stand for righteousness.

We pray for our nation’s leaders that are standing for Biblical truth and justice. “God, fill their mouths with Your utterances and give them wisdom that their opponents cannot resist or refute.”

“Your hand will be lifted up against your adversaries, And all your enemies will be cut off.” Micah 5:9

As we have seen a public display of “those who curse us and send curses against us” arise (though they have always been there); as God’s people we will posture our lives and direct our prayers according to Luke 6:28,

“…bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.”

We speak and declare blessings of salvation upon all those who have sent curses against God and His people and we pray mercy for them; knowing how much the Lord loves each one of them. This is the desire of the Lord,

“…not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance.”

May God open the eyes of the spiritually blind and the ears of the spiritually deaf to see the beauty of His holiness. May judgement fall upon the dark forces that have deceived them and may the people be spared and come to repentance.

In 2 Chronicles 20, God’s people were facing a fierce and vast enemy that sought to displace and destroy them. Together they came before the Lord and cried out for His wisdom and His help. He answered them with these words,

“You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the LORD is with you.”” II Chronicles‬ ‭20:17‬ ‭

When they went out the next morning to face their enemies they announced these words,

“…Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.””

‭‭II Chronicles‬ ‭20:20‬(b)

Then they appointed singers who would began to sing and “praise the beauty of His holiness.” They went out before the enemy army singing,

“Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.” II Chronicles‬ ‭20:21

As they began to sing THE LORD SET AN AMBUSH AGAINST THEIR ENEMIES and they were defeated. He filled their mouths with praise and then HE defeated their enemies.

Let us pray, let us praise and let us sing of the beauty of His holiness. Do not be afraid or dismayed as you look upon the enemies who have risen up against the God’s appointed people, for the battle belongs to the Lord!

Amen~~

A Vision For The United States of America

Kathi Pelton

As I was having a conversation with another prophetic voice about “Jesus as our plumb line”, I was taken into a vision for our nation.

Vision:

I saw a plumb line that was hanging from heaven over the United States of America. To the left of the plumb line was a camp of people that were zealously trumpeting their demands that were humanistic and contrary to Biblical truth. To the right of the plumb line was another camp of people that were equally zealous about their demand for religious rights and conservative standards and yet they were trumpeting their “cause” in the name of Christ but not from the love of Christ. In the center was the plumb line that aligns all with perfect love and truth…Jesus.

The left and the right had set up camps of “for and against”. They were both eating the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil but the plumb line of Christ stood as the “Tree of Life”.

As I was watching this vision the plumb line suddenly turned into a carpenter’s chalkline. I saw the chalkline snap to mark a line of truth that would allow for a straight and righteous cut to be made that is aligned with Jesus the plumb line. It was a standard being set by the Spirit of the Lord.

When this happened the scene immediately changed and I was looking at the scene of when Jesus was with the women who was caught in adultery and those who were about to stone her. I saw Jesus as the plumb line in this scene as He sat between two opposing opinions and as He spoke the words, “He without sin cast the first stone.” As He spoke these words I heard the snap of the chalkline that set the standard and caused all flesh to humble themselves to His wisdom and perfect love. Truth and unfailing love brought forth wisdom, justice, mercy and repentance to those with the stones as well as to the woman caught in sin.

Jesus is marking our nation with a line that makes clear His standard. His standard will cut through the soul to make way for the Spirit of the Lord. The soulish justice of men on both the left and the right will be exposed as flesh and the Lord’s standard of justice will bring life and the Spirit of Truth.

We must guard our hearts from the zeal of the soul that takes sides or creates camps. We must only have a zeal for Christ and His standard that brings life, unity and oneness with God. We must not continue eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil but choose to eat from the Tree of Life. The knowledge of good and evil does not produce life for it lacks perfect love and mercy; only bringing the judgements of men.

God is marking our nation with a line that brings life and not death, unity and not division, truth rather than opinion. This chalkline will make a clear and precise cut in our nation that will be filled with the mercy of the Lord as He declares over us, “Mercy triumphs over judgement!”

Christmas Has Come Early

This new book by Jeffrey & Kathi Pelton is a great gift for for friends and family as we approach December. Order now and give as gifts before December 1st.

There truly is a “reason for the season,” and it has nothing to do with gifts, reindeer, shopping, or chocolate (well, maybe chocolate). But it is easy for us to forget that transcendent purpose as we find ourselves caught up in the materialistic maelstrom that is the modern cultural event known as Christmas. As the end of the year approaches, instead of experiencing an invitation into deeper devotion and wonder and excitement, we find ourselves wondering when, exactly, we seem to have swallowed a lump of coal. If you have ever considered changing your name to Ebenezer for the month of December, then this is for you. Join Jeffrey and Kathi Pelton as they walk through the weeks leading to the Big Day in a winsome and encouraging journey of devotion and discovery, fueled by the lyrics of songs you know–or at least, think you know.

Order through Amazon Books or if you would like a signed copy send a donation of $25 to our ministry with a note attached saying, “Sound of Christmas- signed copy”

Greater Is He That Is In You

Kathi Pelton

For those who woke up today feeling defeated:

Greater is He that is in you!

For those who woke up today feeling sick:

Greater is He that is in you!

For those who woke up today feeling grief:

Greater is He that is in you!

For those who woke up today feeling alone:

Greater is He that is in you!

For those who woke up today feeling afraid:

Greater is He that is in you!

Jesus does not change even in the midst of fear, pain or sorrow. The world is ever shifting and always changing but “Greater is He” who never changes.

No matter what you woke up today feeling…within you is one that is greater than anything that you are facing. His love is greater, His power is greater, His compassion is greater, His grace is greater and His plans for you are greater.

His thoughts toward you outnumber the grains of sand and those thoughts never change. They are endless and infinite and good! His thoughts are perfect and His ways are perfect…higher and greater than our thoughts about ourselves or our lives.

His ability and power to save you and deliver you from all that is bigger than you is greater than what is standing against you. His compassion reaches farther than your pain and His mercy triumphs over judgements.

He is greater and He is within you! What is bigger than you is still not greater than Him! He will show His greatness in your life! Trust Him.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For my readers: I heard the words “Mercy is falling this Fall”. The Lord is giving great mercy upon those who need financial mercies and miracles at this time. I saw finances falling like the fall leaves. I am agreeing in prayer for this mercy to fall down upon each of you! Amen-

A Word for Moms

Kathi Pelton

Today we are driving a long 800 miles to go home after a week with our oldest daughter and youngest son who live in California. Whenever I leave my kids my mom’s heart is torn. I look into their eyes and I know intimately every look, every longing, every need and fear. When we say good-bye we linger in the embrace longer than we ought to and my heart stays in the embrace long after we physically separate.

As a mom I have had to learn an important truth; our Heavenly Father loves them even more than I do. He knows their looks, longings, needs, fears and thoughts even more intimately than I do. Though that’s hard to believe, it remains true. Mom’s often struggle with the compulsion to carry their kids (young or grown) in a way that can quickly turn into anxiety or worry. They are carried with us every where we go no matter their age.

The truth is that my moments of worry have never helped my kids! I have learned throughout the years to daily bring them before the throne of grace and lay them down in the arms of the One who loves them most. The greatest gift that I can give my children is to daily surrender and dedicate them to the absolute faithfulness of God. Though there are days that tears of intercession pour; as I join my heart with the Lord’s regarding them. But when I arise from the place of prayer I am confident of His plans and protection over them. They are then carried in my heart by hope and faith in something and someone greater than me.

If you are carrying your children today in a way that is weighing you down and causing you anxiety then take them to the arms of Jesus. He will take your burden, your concerns and everything that they need into the infinite care of His perfect love. He knows the way that they are to go and He will lead them. He will comfort them and His faithfulness will be proven true in their lives.

In the place of prayer we do our best “mothering”. As we partner with the One who loves them most we become a bridge that they can cross over into the heart of God. In prayer and partnership with God we see fears turn into confident assurance and anxiety turn into peace as we nurture them with a heart that surrenders them to a greater love than our own.

The greatest affect that you will have in your children’s lives will happen in prayer. When they are nearby, hold them close but when you separate (whether to send them off to school or because they have grown into adults) bring them before God and surrender them to His love and care. He is more than enough for all that they need.

Thy Will Be Done

Kathi Pelton

As you commit your steps to the Lord, He will both order and establish them according to His will and His purposes. Do not give into the voices of fear that cause you an anxious heart but take hold of absolute trust, that as you have surrendered your will in exchange for His will, that He is faithful to fulfill it. He will make a way even when you don’t know the way, He will redirect missed steps, reorder all that has been in disorder and He will be the doorway of hope that all of His promises are fulfilled in.

You can’t miss as you surrender your will to the One who knows the way! He is a faithful Father who will take you by the hand and lead you into the everlasting way. All who say like Mary, “Be it unto me according to your word.” will not be disappointed.

Even when trials come, His faithfulness will surround that trial, when you face lack His abundance will overcome your need, when you face pain His comfort will rest upon your heart and when feel afraid His perfect love will cast out fear.

May your week begin with the words, “Thy will be done!”
