For All Who Are 60+…The Lord Has A Word For You! – A word by Kathi Pelton

Kathi Pelton View Bio inscribeministries.com Yesterday I was speaking to someone who is in his early 60’s and I said to him (by the Spirit’s prompting), “In 2020 your 60’s will be like your 20’s again!” I literally saw his “youth renewed.” As I spoke these words the Spirit is the Lord landed on my words and showed me that this will come upon the 60+ year olds who are still “running with the Lord.” I saw a weariness and the fatigue of age was weighing them down but suddenly the words from Isaiah 40:28-31 will come upon them and renew them! "Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." You will have the wisdom, maturity and experience of your natural age but you shall run and not grow weary, walk and not faint! 2020 will restore the strength of your 20’s while retaining the wisdom of your years. Many will say, “60 is the new 20’s!” It’s the best of both! God is breaking...

3 Ways to Get Fear Out of Your Life – A word by Doug Addison

Doug Addison View Bio DougAddison.com Fear is a four-letter word that starts with “F!” This simple little word, fear, is the root of so much pain in the world. You’ve most likely been affected by it through things like stress, procrastination or worry. It is interesting to me that the Bible says things like “fear not” or “do not be afraid” over 365 times! That’s like God telling you not to be afraid every day of the year! So, getting rid of fear must be important! Many of us even feel the sting of fear because we’re trying to be perfect all the time. But there are a few places in the Bible where we’re encouraged to be perfect—and it’s not what you expect! Perfect peace The first thing we are encouraged to be perfect in is peace. How can you do this? We’re given the instructions for this in Isaiah! You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3 NKJV If we want to be in perfect peace, we have to keep our minds focused on the Lord and trust Him with our lives. How can you be afraid when you’ve completely focused your heart, mind and soul on God? When you shift your gaze off of yourself and your fears and instead focus on God and His greatness, you enter into perfect peace! Perfect love Love is the perfect remedy to fear, because you can’t love and be afraid at the same time. There...

Submit a word via email: [email protected] And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. | Romans 8:11 As I was on my morning walk today, I heard the Lord say to me, “My resurrection power is hovering over your life!” Immediately, I was reminded of Elevation Worship’s song, “Resurrecting”: By Your spirit I will rise From the ashes of defeat The resurrected King, is resurrecting me In Your name I come alive To declare Your victory The resurrected King, is resurrecting me — Elevation Worship, “Resurrecting” I was so moved as I heard the Lord speak this. I sense that many—myself included—have been contending for victory and breakthrough for so long, but have not seen much movement. However, I believe that the Lord’s heart of encouragement is so strong for the Body in this hour. He is saying to us, “I am rewarding your faith!” This is a holy and significant time, as we celebrate the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ. The Lord wants us to know that He is truly resurrecting what has appeared to be dead and beyond hope. His resurrection power is hovering over our lives, even now! The voice of the Lord...

Our Living Worship – A word by Michelle Holderman

Michelle Holderman   View Bio   theragamuffinsaint.com   Have something to share? Spirit Fuel always welcomes new authors and content to be submitted for review and consideration. Submit a word via email: [email protected]   On a regular day in September of 2016, I was sitting at my laptop, working on a writing project, when I suddenly felt the unmistakable presence of Jesus come into the room. He started talking to me about the value of giving all of myself to Him, and He called it "an act of living worship."   He went on to say while I had given Him most of me, there were still a few places I hadn't. He said He wanted everything, including the weary and bruised places, as well as the unknown ones.   I could feel the weight of His words in my spirit and sensed this was the beginning of a life-changing time. I also felt His deep tenderness and love towards me. Little did I know what this actually meant and involved, but I knew it was profound and true.   And now, almost two years later, I am continuing to learn the value of surrendering every part of my life as an expression of my worship to Him, even the parts I haven't fully understood. I've learned a lot of other things, too, but I've especially learned I didn't understand worship in the way Jesus views worship.   On this side of it, I am better able to see what...

His Goodness Pursues You – A Word of Encouragement – A word by Mandy Woodhouse

Mandy Woodhouse   mandywoodhouseoutrageoushope.com   Have something to share? Spirit Fuel always welcomes new authors and content to be submitted for review and consideration. Submit a word via email: [email protected]   While recently driving to an appointment that I was a bit nervous about, I found myself singing the lyrics to an old song which is actually from Psalm 23:6, “Surely goodness and mercy follow all my days, and I will worship You…”   “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” (ESV)   And I love how the Passion Translation puts it: “So why would I fear the future? For your goodness and love pursue me all the days of my life. Then afterward, when my life is through, I’ll return to your glorious presence to be forever with you!”   I heard the Lord say to me while singing, “MY CHILD…surely…SURELY, my goodness and my steadfast love chase you down. I am in constant pursuit of YOU, because I am utterly enthralled by the beauty of My creation. Why would you worry? Why would you fear? Regardless of the outcome, My steadfast love pursues you! I would not pursue you with love if I didn’t care….”   He also reminded me of Lamentations 3:22: “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end.”   The footnotes in biblegateway.com says that another way of stating this in...

Receive Your Crown: It Is Coronation Day! – A word by Kathi Pelton

Kathi Pelton View Bio inscribeministries.com Have something to share? Spirit Fuel always welcomes new authors and content to be submitted for review and consideration. Submit a word via email: [email protected] This morning I heard the words, “Bow down, it is time to receive your crown.” Often, as Christians, our focus is to cast down our crowns before our beautiful King but the Lord made it clear to me today that there is a coronation ceremony happening in the spirit where God is crowning His chosen ones to walk in their sovereign positions as kings and queens who represent the crown of the King of Kings. I saw that now is the time for the sons and daughters to enter into their birth rights and to receive their crown. There is great inheritance within your birth right and because you have been born into a King’s family (born again) that inheritance is yours. It is time to take your place and to begin to access your inheritance. Like in the days of Queen Esther, the King’s scepter is being extended, the signet ring is being placed upon the hand of the rightful recipients, favor is being shown and crowns are being placed upon the heads of those who have been prepared for “such a time as this!” Not only is there a coronation ceremony happening but as it is happening there is something else simultaneously happening; it is the “hanging of the antagonist.” Haman was the antagonistic figure in the Book...

Championing Others – A word by Luc Niebergall

Luc Niebergall   View Bio   royalidentity.ca   Have something to share? Spirit Fuel always welcomes new authors and content to be submitted for review and consideration. Submit a word via email: [email protected]   Before David was the king of Israel, he first became the king of those who were rejected by Israel. David took several men who were branded as rejects and turned them into his mighty men; those known throughout the nation of Israel as men of valour. It was David’s ability to look past what Israel saw in these men to see what God saw that catapulted them into their destiny. David received those who did not feel as though they belonged. He fathered them and taught them how to walk in greatness.   This is the power we carry. We can look into someone who doesn’t even believe in themselves and call greatness out from them. All we need to do is allow God to refine our eyes to see people for who they truly are, instead of seeing them how the world brands them.   Did this article bless you?

Prophetic Word: “You Have Been Pulled-back but You Will Not Stall-out” – A Word by Andrew Towe

Andrew Towe View Bio ramp.church/chatt “You Have Been Pulled-back but You Will Not Stall-out” I heard the Lord say… “You are coming off the rollercoaster of starts and stops. “You will no longer STALL-OUT!” The term “Stall-out” is defined as, “to slow, come to a halt, to remain, to linger.” Source: dictionary.com  Many of you in the last decade saw areas of breakthrough in your life and thought, “It is finally here. My promise is finally being fulfilled.” But, as sudden as it started, it abruptly stopped. Your hopes were dashed, and left you disappointed and discouraged. It’s time to get to your hopes up again! “Cast not away therefore your confidence, which has great recompence of reward” (Heb. 10:35). The Lord recently showed me a vision of an archer with a bow and arrow. I saw the archer place his arrow next to the bow and released it. It sadly fell to the ground. It was not properly launched. Then I looked again and saw the archer take his bow and load his arrow. I watched as he pulled back both his arrow and bowstring and released the arrow into the air. This time brought a very different finish. I heard the Lord say, “Everyone is anxious to go forward, but unless they allow Me, the Master Archer, to pull them back, they will fall to the ground like the first arrow you saw. I have pulled back many of My arrows, but this is the hour that I...

My Goodness and Mercy Hovers Over You – A word by Angie Stolba

Angie Stolba  View Bio angiestolba.com    The LORD’S loving kindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. | Lamentations 3:22-23   “My child, My goodness and mercy hovers over your life, even now. Truly My compassions never come to an end (Lamentations 3:22). Nothing. again I say, nothing can ever separate you from My love.”   For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:38-39).   “Do not fear tomorrow, nor what the future may hold. Indeed, the plans I have for you are only for your well being. For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the  Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).   “I am good. In fact, I am better than you think! You’ve stepped into a new year and a new season. Refuse to let doubt or the regrets of yesterday bring you down. As far as the east is from the west, I have forgiven your past mistakes and remember them not (Psalm 103:12).   “I am calling you to receive fresh mercies and grace for today.
