Healing From The Spirit of Offense- A Word by Gypsy Dallas Smith
Many of you are struggling with lack of self- worth and such huge
insecurities. Many, of you are so wounded by others that you are so easily
offended, people have a hard time being around you. They feel like they
cannot say anything, without you getting upset about it. I know. I used to
be one of those people. I was so hurt and angry for allowing myself to be
used by people, that I was easily offended. I felt like everything was a
personal attack and I needed to stay on the defense.
I thank God for securing who I am in Him and removing the spirit of
offense. It is such an awkward thing to carry. So many misunderstandings
come from people who are hurt and carry a spirit of offense and rejection.
If you are not this person, you know someone who is. We all do.
The only thing that helped me with this, was getting in the word and
prayer. Spending time with Jesus and letting HIM recalibrate me. He had to
do a major overhaul on all the negative thoughts I had about myself. Some
thoughts were my own insecurities, but many were hurtful words that others
had said, that became seeds and took root. But I had to learn to forgive
others for the pain that they caused. It didn’t make what they did okay,
but it did release me from carrying the pain any longer.
I want to encourage you today to begin to allow God into the most inner
parts of your heart and let Him do some gardening. Let Him start pulling
the roots of rejection, bitterness and offense. Let Him establish in you a
sense of self worth and knowing who you are in Him. You are more than the
hurtful words that have been spoken over you. You are more than the
terrible things that has happened to you. God grieves, knowing the pain you
went through. But He is here today, to remind you of His amazing love for
you. To remind you that you can become WHOLE, healed spiritually,
emotionally and physically. When you know who you are in Christ, you will
never allow yourself to be abused by anyone again. God is asking you to
trust Him to heal you, to give every hurt, every pain and every trauma to
Him. Will you trust Him today?

Prayer; Father, please help me to know who I am in you. Please take away
anything in me that is hindering me from my walk with you. I want to be

this hurt and rejection any more. Please help me to let it go and to trust
you with the inner most parts of my heart. Please help me to forgive myself
and others for any pain that was caused, that keeps me bound. Help me to
release all my insecurities to you and to trust you with my whole heart. In

A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
