Give and It Will Be Given To You

Today is #GivingTuesday!

Each day of the year I am seeking the Lord regarding how I can give to my readers…”His sons and daughters!” It is a constant joy to hear His words of love and encouragement for you and to be able to scribe them for you to read. My husband and I love to travel our nation and the nations to reveal His love and to declare His faithfulness to all who have ears to hear.

But today is about giving back. 2019 has been a busy and fruitful year and 2020 is going to exceed our wildest dreams as we transition into all that He is asking of us. These major transitions (which we will announce soon) will require a huge amount of support and resources.

Will you give us your best offering on this day to give back…#GivingTuesday?

Luke 6:38 says,

“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.”

To the measure that you give, it will be given back to you…to overflowing!

I Woke Up Hearing, “Tell My Sons and Daughters How Much I Love Them!”

by Kathi Pelton

As I woke up this morning I immediately felt a rush of deep emotion and heard these words, “Tell my sons and daughters how much I love them!” My eyes filled with tears because of the raw emotion in His words. His words touched the depths of my soul.

Then He said, “The demons have been sent out on a campaign to convince my children that they have failed, that they have somehow fallen away, drifted too far or done something that has separated them from My love. Tell them this; nothing can separate them from My love! I am closer than ever and long to calm their fears and assure them that I am near. Oh how I love My children! Tell them that!”

Then I saw angels that had been held back by a great battle in the heavens break through the resistance and rush to those who had been attacked by these demonic lies and torment. They rushed with a healing balm and pure water to heal the wounds caused by this fierce attack.

I saw our beautiful Savior bend down from Heaven and He wept with such love over His sons and daughters pain. His tears became a washing from the “filthy lies” they had been barraged with. They were being cleaned by His tears of love.

It reminded me of the time many year ago when one of my sons began to believe some terrible lies about himself and I just took him in my arms and said, “That is not who you are or how I see you!” I just held him as we both wept until he knew he was loved once again.

His love is stronger than the grave! Be restored to His great love right now! Oh how He loves you and how pleased He is merely with your desire for Him. When you fall He rushes to pick you up, when you fail He is so proud of your effort, when you get scared He is so quick to calm your fears. He is right there with you— right now!

His Presence Changes Everything

by Kathi Pelton

What an amazing reality to know that when you wake up each morning that His presence is right there with you. Then, when you lay down at night He remains present— and in every moment throughout each day.

When I was a young believer and newly married I got up one morning to see my young husband prostate on the floor in prayer. I could tell that he was weeping and I was deeply moved by the tenderness in my husband’s heart. When he finally got up from the floor I looking at his tear stained face and said,

“Wow, you must have had a powerful time with Jesus!”

He shocked me because he responded by saying, “No, I wasn’t able to breakthrough into His presence.”

I stood before him utterly confused because I had read the verse from Deuteronomy 31:6-8 that says,

“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

I had only been a believer a short time but I was sure that we didn’t have to “breakthrough into His presence!” Somewhere in my young husband’s sensitive conscience and desire to “be holy” he had come to believe that he had to work to gain access into the presence of God; the enemy was only too happy to convince him that he’d never done enough to arrive (thankfully, God set him free of that lie!).

We may have to “strive to enter into rest”; not because we have to earn it but because we have to train our souls to surrender to trust and peace; but His presence is with us always. He’s not absent, distant, mad or critical— He waits, watches and does not ever waver in His faithfulness to be with us always.

The knowledge that He is always with me and His Spirit (which is Him!) dwells within me changes everything. The God who spoke the entirety of creation into existence is with us always! There is nothing that you will go through or face alone. NOTHING!

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isaiah 43:2

You continually have all that you need because He is with you. Your comforter, deliverer, provider, protector, friend, warrior, counselor, teacher, helper, lover, King and Savior is present with you day and every night. Not because you did anything to earn it but because His death on the cross tore the veil that separated us. It is grace that opened up the way. He paid the full price for His presence to be opened up to us. We can boldly and confidently go before His throne!

I want to say it again…HIS PRESENCE CHANGES EVERYTHING!! He is before you, behind you and beside you. He’s been where you are going and He’s been where you have already gone.

I am continually in awe when I look back on my life at how at every turn He’s prepared the way for me. Of course I’ve faced my share of hard times and even seasons of deep grief, but He was always present to comfort me and make a way through the wilderness. The older I get the more I can look back on my own journey as a living testimony that declares, “He has never left me, nor forsaken me!”

I woke up today with such a tangible awareness of His presence with me and around me. It filled me with such expectation of wondering what He will do next— because everything changes in His presence!

“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11

What amazing and unfathomable thing will He surprise us with today? Yesterday He surprised dear friends of ours with a testimony that left me in such awe! When I heard the testimony of what God did, I wanted to run into the arms of Jesus and embrace Him for being so very good and faithful. His faithfulness toward them overflowed onto me like a flood of joy.

He is with you and in His presence is joy (Ps. 16:11) , peace and rest (Ex. 33:14), refreshing (Acts 3:20-21), help (John14:26), wisdom and instruction (Ps. 25:5-9), mercy and grace (Heb. 4:16), salvation (Zep. 3:17), justice (Ps. 37:5-6), fruitfulness (Jer. 17:7-8)…and so much more!

Release His presence into all that is around you…and watch as it changes everything.

Important Update!

Dear Ministry Friends & Partners,

First, thank you all for standing with us, praying for us and supporting us in all that the Lord has asked us to do and the places He has asked us to go. It truly takes a “family” and you are that to us!

Our ministry and family has entered a time of great acceleration where we are seeing our young adult children sent out like arrows shot forth from our quiver. Dreams and prophetic words that we have carried for decades are suddenly coming upon us and upon our children.

God has put a deep call and longing in our hearts throughout the years to walk with the younger generation; to see them thrive in the midst of family. We live this out in our immediate family and with our spiritual sons and daughters locally, nationally and internationally.

Jeffrey and I have expanded our walk with the younger generation as we partner with the Awaken the Dawn movement (http://www.awakenthedawn.org/). This is a company and family of amazing Levite’s (musicians, prayer leaders and sold-out sons and daughters) that have given their “Yes” to the Lord to make the worth of Jesus known throughout our nation while hosting His presence in different states and cities. We are stepping in to carry the baton with them and to disciple them as they run. It is the fathers and mothers and sons and daughters running together as one family.

We will continue to be a part of our global team that is walking with many nations to see God’s family joined in the unity and oneness that Jesus prayed for in John 17:20-23. We also will continue to be the young adults pastors to our “Third Watch” young adults team here in Portland, Oregon that is part of the city transformation and focusing on Portland State University’s reformation.

Lastly, we will continue to encourage the body of Christ through our writings, prophesy, teachings and books. Inscribing the vision is one of our greatest passions.

Due to all that God is opening up before us, our travel schedule has increased immensely in this season. This has also increased our need for prayer and financial partners who will commit to support us on a monthly basis.

We would like to invite you to be a part of our ministry family by becoming a financial partner with us.

We need to raise an additional $4000 per month to cover travel expenses, ministry expenses and personal expenses as we give our full focus to the work of the Kingdom.

We are now preparing to have two months of continual travel throughout North America. We will be going to Idaho, Utah, Montana, Boston, Vermont, Ottawa (Canada), Washington DC, Virginia and further between now and September. If you would like to sow into this extended trip, we would be so very grateful.

If you believe in what we are doing and would like to become a ministry partner through prayer and monthly financial support; go to: https://www.inscribeministries.com/

You can set up an automatic monthly payment through pressing our donation button on the homepage. You can also write to us at: admin@inscribeministries.com to let us know that you have committed to partner with us.

We commit to pray for you and your loved ones. We will host quarterly ZOOM calls with our supporters so that we truly become “family” and can pray with you.

Thank you for your love and “yes” to Jesus! He has spoken to me clearly in this season by saying that He is “Prospering His people’s, ‘YES’.” We say, “Yes!”

With Love and Gratitude, Jeffrey & Kathi Pelton

The Wilderness You’ve Been Going Through Is Your Door of Hope

by Kathi Pelton

Some of you have been going through a time of deep pain, deep longing and what you’d describe as a wilderness time. Many years ago I went through such a time and during those few years I honestly wondered if I’d survive the pain and darkness that surrounded my soul.

During that time I was often awake in the middle of the night trying to find my way through the unrelenting pain. One night, in the midst of the thick wilderness, I began to hear the words from the Book of Hosea flowing through my heart like a stream of hope upon my dry and thirsty soul. The words are from Hosea 2:14-23,

““Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her. There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she will respond as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt. “In that day,” declares the Lord, “you will call me ‘my husband’; you will no longer call me ‘my master. ’ I will remove the names of the Baals from her lips; no longer will their names be invoked. In that day I will make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky and the creatures that move along the ground. Bow and sword and battle I will abolish from the land, so that all may lie down in safety. I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion. I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the Lord. “In that day I will respond,” declares the Lord — “I will respond to the skies, and they will respond to the earth; and the earth will respond to the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, and they will respond to Jezreel. I will plant her for myself in the land; I will show my love to the one I called ‘Not my loved one. ’ I will say to those called ‘Not my people, ’ ‘You are my people’; and they will say, ‘You are my God.’ ””

These verses became my lifeline! They gave me purpose in the pain and points for prayer. God hadn’t taken me into the wilderness to ruin me but rather to restore me! In His incredible mercy, He drew me into a place that was set apart because He loved me too much to leave me content with less than the fullness of what He intended for my life.

There, in the wilderness, I became aware of all the “masters of my soul” and I became keenly aware of the captivity that the busyness of my life had hidden in the locked closets of my soul. I was laid bare and in the midst of naked vulnerability He covered me with His love, He healed my wounds, dressed me in His righteousness and He betrothed me to Him; changing my identity to, “I am my Beloved’s and He is mine.” (Songs of Solomon 6:3)

‭Though it was the most painful time of my life; it was the most important time in my life. I am forever grateful that He “allured me into the wilderness to speak tenderly to me and to restore me.” During that three year wilderness my life was saved and everything changed. I was set free to truly live, truly be loved and truly breathe in the beauty of salvation.

The wilderness is not without purpose! Rarely is it only a moment but rather a journey. My wilderness changed when I began to understand that there was a divine purpose in it. Prior to that it was merely agonizing pain that was leaving me stuck. As soon as I found the purpose through the verses in Hosea, I began to partner with God to walk into freedom upon the path He had forged for me.

Your wilderness is not without purpose. Winter is for only for a season but you must go through that season to get to the springtime. If you are in a wilderness season; you are not in the wilderness alone. God is with you there. You are surrounded by angelic hosts that have been assigned to you— to minister to you. Holy Spirit is with you to reveal the purpose and the path to you. It’s not a place to build homes or remain but a place to journey “through.”

It is a place of redemption! It is a place where you are set free and a place where you are betrothed. My life truly began in the wilderness when I discovered He was there with me. From that point onward I moved forward and left behind the masters I had served and the chains that had held me captive. Some call it, “the dark night of the soul” but I call it the “door of hope.” My valley of weeping became the threshold of true joy and freedom.

When I emerged from this season into my springtime my husband gave me a gift. It was the verses from Songs of Solomon 2:10-13 engraved on slate. They read,

“My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me. See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.””

Don’t stop moving forward because the purpose of your wilderness is redemption! The winter will pass and flowers will appear. The sound of the dove’s song will be heard once again. You will bear fruit once again and intimacy will surround you like the fragrance of a garden in full bloom.

You are in a doorway of hope. Though weeping lasts a night…joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5).

Can You Help?

It seems as though the summer and holiday months are some of the tightest times financially for ministries. This year has been no different!

We now find ourselves in a financial deficit as we move from summer to fall. Since we do not do fund raising occasionally we have to come to our readers and supporters to ask, “Can you help?”

We just finished our co-authored book, The Yielding, which is ready to send to the publishers. We are working with our global team to see that it will go out in many different languages. Kathi is working diligently on her next book in her “30-Days to Breakthrough” series which we are hoping to release during the fall. This book will focus on “Boldness“.

We have a very busy September here in Portland with ten thousand people coming here from around to world to gather for Compassion to Action: Portland 2018. We will be flooding the city with the good news of God’s love. Pray for this amazing event.

Prayerfully consider standing with us in prayer and financial support at this time. You can give directly through our Inscribe Ministry website or mail a check (money order if you live outside of the USA) to:

Jeffrey & Kathi Pelton

Thank you and we pray abundant and multiplied blessings and favor upon you and your household as you stand with us.

Jesus Has Come to Calm Your Storm

Kathi Pelton

Matthew 14:25-33

Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,”

they said, and cried out in fear.

But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”

“Come,” he said.

Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”

And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”

Often during the storms that life on Earth unleashes against us we feel that our very existence is threatened. It can feel as though everything will be lost in the midst of the unrelenting waves that pound against all that you’ve worked so hard for. But there is good news…Jesus is walking upon those waves toward you! They are under His feet.

I love that in Matthew 14 we see how Peter has so much faith in Jesus that he says, “If it is you; call me to come to you”. He knows that his Lord is the only one who can enable him to walk upon the very storm that has been pounding against their boat. But when he steps out in faith the force of the storm becomes far too real to Peter and he takes his eyes off of the One who is enabling him to walk on water and he allows fear to invade his miracle; causing him to sink.

This is a time where many have stepped out in faith during a storm and are even now sinking because the shelter of the boat that had been carrying them is now behind them, Jesus is still before them but the storm is UPON THEM!

Do you feel yourself sinking beneath the waves and darkness of the sea? Has the reality of the storm caused you to wish that you had never left the boat? If so, know that Jesus is going to reach out and grab your hand to save you!

Whether you have stepped out in faith to “walk on water” or you are still in the boat that is in the midst of a storm; know that He is with you and will save you.

Jesus is and always has been your bridge over troubled waters. The enemy may be able to stir the waters of adversity but he has no authority over the One who stills the wind and waves. Now is time to come into agreement with the reality of “Who He is” rather than “what you see”! The natural reality of the storm you are facing has no authority over the Creator of the Earth and all that is in it.

Declare now that the God above all gods, the Creator of everything, the Beginning and the End and the only Worthy One is Lord of your life and even your storm. You will be amazed how peace will come to you in the midst of this storm because you have come into agreement with the Prince of Peace.

Now is the time to shift your eyes from the wind and waves to the Prince of Peace who calms your storm and calms your fears.

“Be still and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10
