The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree
“The apple doesn’t fall from the tree.”
The ole idiom meaning; kids are like their parents; like father, like son.
I never wanted to be like my father. My earthly father was not a good example and as a child and teenager I determined in my heart that I was wasn’t going to be like him. Fast-forward to adult life and the revelatory conclusion that, yes indeed, I was just like him because . . .
the apple doesn’t fall from the tree.
We are like our parents. I had my father’s characteristics. But what is true in the natural so it is also true in the spirit.
The bible says that GOD IS LOVE,
“And we have come to know and believe the love that God has for us. God is love; whoever abides in love abides in God, and God in him.” 1 John 4:16
And we are God’s children,
“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” 1 John 3:1
Therefore if God is love and you are his child then . . .

YOU ARE LOVE!
Love is your true identity,
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
Love is the essence of who you are!
The devil doesn’t try to get you to do bad things. He comes to rob you of your identity. The devil comes to steal love. He does not want you to know who you are. Because when you know who you are you will manifest those characteristics. He wants to stop you from walking in your true identity, love. So he lies and tries to get you to believe in a false identity. For instance, if he can get you to believe that you are a failure, he has robbed you of your identity because the truth is, you are love and
love never fails!
There is no defense for love. Love always wins. Love is your true identity. Love is who you are. You have your FATHER’S characteristics!
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13
So the next time the devil attempts to rob you of your identity remind him of who your Father is! God is love and you are love because . . .

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!
