Fit to Follow

Fit to Follow
“Whoever desires to save his life will lose it,
but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.”
MATTHEW 16:25

Some will say, “I am willing to die now that I have followed.” The person who knows the Cross says, “I am fit to follow now that I have died.”

Why is this important? Because Jesus knows that no human being is qualified to follow Him until they have first died. Jesus knows a man cannot live until he has died and been raised to life again. He therefore bids us to die right away, that He may raise us from the dead by His Indwelling Spirit and place us immediately upon the correct path.

Heavenly Perception

Heavenly Perception
“God, who is rich in mercy, because of
His great love with which He loved us… raised us up together,
and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.”
EPHESIANS 2:4,6

The difference between those who overcome and those who do not overcome is a difference in their own PERCEIVED position. We all ought to perceive that in Christ we are seated in the heavenly places. We cannot overcome without this perception, this seeing, this revelation. If our perception is earthly, we will remain earthly. If our perception is heavenly, we will overcome.

The Path I Have Paved for You


The Path I Have Paved for You

My child, do not look to the left or the right and compare your life to others. For the road I have called you to walk is one that I have paved by my very own hands. It is a trail that is not traveled by all, so do not simply follow the path that is most traveled, but be sure that you are following my voice, every step of the way.
Be open to what I have to say and do not be afraid to walk on water. The life I have given you is meant to be lived and enjoyed. It is meant to take you places that are beyond your imagination.
So step out with zeal and great expectation. Look forward to the day for what it is... a life of adventure that I have created before you. Do not be afraid to walk the narrow path or to take risks, child, for through it you will find the abundant life. Amen.

Boasting in the Cross


Boasting in the Cross
“God forbid that I should boast
except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,
by whom the world has been crucified to me,
and I to the world.”
GALATIANS 6:14

Whereas the Holy Spirit is instrumental in the increase of Christ, the Cross is instrumental in the decrease of Self. Remember that the whole trouble with man is his inherent tendency to travel a path that is independent of his Creator. This is why the Cross must do a very deep, thorough work in every disciple of Jesus.

As Self is submitted to Christ, Sin begins to lose its power of attraction, and Satan has no more leverage. The night He was betrayed, Jesus told His disciples, “The ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me” (John 14:30). That is to say, there was nothing in the Lord Jesus that the devil could use to get an advantage over Him. This is the condition He desires for each of His disciples, and the Cross is the means through which that condition is arrived at.

God's Simple Solution


God's Simple Solution
“Put on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”
ROMANS 13:14

God’s Solution to the problem of sin, self, and satan is to have us put on the Lord Jesus. Only through Him can we “make no provision for the flesh,” and only through Him can we “stand against the wiles of the devil.” We dare not make it more complicated when the Lord has made it simple.
To focus on our flesh and on our enemy is a huge waste of time. Instead, we must perceive just how glorious the Son of God is, and press deeply into Him. Do you have a method, or a Man? It is not about me, my flesh, or the devil – it is all about Christ, and as He is increased, none of these other things can do anything but be decreased.

The Prince of Peace

Apostle Colette Toach

The Prince of Peace

Be still and listen to my voice, child. For when the winds are blowing hard and it seems that you have no control over your sails, it is then, that you must be still and listen to My voice. Do you remember how I stilled the storm? I am the Prince of Peace and if I am your King, then are you not also covered in peace?
So let my love and my peace rule over you. Allow Me to cover you from every doubt and fear. Look up to me and I will displace your fears with faith in my power. You will see that you have the One who has overcome the world, living inside of you.
Do not be shaken, child, but come to me. See how big my hands are and how strong my arms can be, to carry you through. The storms that you face, are but a breeze to me and with one word, I can gain the attention of the tallest mountains. Every creature bows down to me and all the kingdoms of this world are servants to me. I can turn every storm around for your favor and change the direction of every wind. So be still and know that I am God. You are Mine and I am yours. Amen

Where the Power Lies

Apostle Colette Toach

Where the Power Lies

My power is mighty to save and deliver, child. I can move mountains out of your way and blast away the giants that stand before you. So why not use my strength? Why not use my authority and the weapons that I have given you?
Do not push in your own strength, but take up the sword, the shield, and the power of my anointing. What took you all of your might, would take you very little strength, when you do it with my anointing.
What have you put your hands to today? Where have you committed your focus? Stop in this moment, and instead of pushing through on your own, tap into my anointing inside of you. Speak my Word, use faith, hope and love and see the mountains tremble before you. There is success when you are in Me, child. So let your yoke be light by picking up the anointing and using my Name.
In you is everything you need to overcome every obstacle, so take up the mighty weapons before you and let us conquer what lies ahead together, for there is much to look forward to and many victories to claim. Amen
