Chosen, anointed and sent to bear rich fruit

"But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may announce the praises” of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light."  (1 Peter 2: 9)

The Lord declares me chosen, called and anointed to be a royal priest, a holy man and one He has chosen and dedicated for Himself.  He rescued me out of darkness and placed in a wonderful light to go and bear fruit that will last.

"I will bear a witness to you in the world, O Lord.  I will spread the knowledge of your name among my brothers, alleluia."

"LORD, my allotted portion and my cup,
you have made my destiny secure.
Pleasant places were measured out for me;
fair to me indeed is my inheritance."  (Psalm 16: 5 - 6)

The Enterprise is not of human origin

"So now I tell you, have nothing to do with these men, and let them go. For if this endeavor or this activity is of human origin, it will destroy itself.
But if it comes from God, you will not be able to destroy them; you may even find yourselves fighting against God.” They were persuaded by him."  (Acts 5: 38 - 39)

I received this word of God early in 0296.  I received it from PSSJ.  I remember the situation clearly as if it is yesterday.  Because I remember the when, the how and the why of this word of God to me, I know it is a revelation.

The Enterprise is built on this unfailing word.  If God is with me, the mission is accomplished.  Therefore,
"I believe I shall see the LORD’s goodness
in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD, take courage;
be stouthearted, wait for the LORD"  (Psalm 27: 13 - 14)

Also because "If God is for me, who can be against me?" (Romans 8: 31)

God does not ration the gift of the Spirit

" God does not ration the gift of the Spirit." (John 3 :34)

" The Lord hears the cry of the poor. " (Psalm 34:6)

Father, I am poor and needy.  Hear my cry and grant me the fullness of your Holy Spirit to lead me to the fullness of conversion and charity.

" And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28 :20)

If the Lord is with me, it is accomplished.

Planted in the House of the Lord

Psalm 92:13-16
The just shall flourish like the palm tree, shall grow like a cedar of Lebanon. Planted in the house of the Lord, they shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall bear fruit even in old age, always vigorous and sturdy, As they proclaim: "The Lord is just; our rock, in whom there is no wrong."

What a beautiful promise!!
This is how it feels when one is planted in the House of the Lord.
O Lord grant access!  O Lord grant success!!

Born of the Holy Spirit

"Do not be amazed that I told you, ‘You must be born from above.’
The wind blows where it wills, and you can hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3: 7 - 8)

Lord, I yearn for the fullness of your Holy Spirit.  I want to feel His powerful impact in my life.

The Holy Spirit and fruitfulness

"And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God."  (Luke 1:35)

Lord Jesus Christ, set me on fire with the Holy Spirit so that the anointed ministry that will be born in me will glorify the Father.
