The Lord Is My Portion Says His Priests

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I have hope in Him.’ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him” Lamentations 3:22-25 It is certainly the priests of the Lord who realize what a privilege it is to believe, receive, and confess the privileged truth of “The Lord is my portion.” This realization, that the Lord indeed is our portion, is what keeps us, as His priests, near our Lord, for He is our portion now and forever. He is our hope. We wait for Him and seek Him, for He i

Waiting & Seeking - Our God-Given Priesthood Keys

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I have hope in Him.’ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him” Lamentations 3:22-25 Our God’s lovingkindnesses never cease and His compassions never fail. Thank You Lord! If there is ever a day when I am failing to see my God’s lovingkindnesses and compassions, that can only be because I have failed to “wait for Him” and seek Him. Yes, I may fail to see God’s goodness, but my God’s goodness never fails. I may fail to behold His lovingk

To Those Who Wait For Him

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I have hope in Him.’ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him” Lamentations 3:22-25 Praise God that our Lord’s lovingkindnesses and compassions are new, for us, every morning! The proof that we believe this is seen in our own spiritual posture, in our being the one who will actually wait for our Lord and seek Him, in order to receive into revelation life these very lovingkindnesses and compassions. Yes our waiting upon our Lord shows t

Shepherds And Priests Who Are After God’s Own Heart

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “I will give you shepherds after My own heart, who will feed you on knowledge and understanding” Jeremiah 3:15 Every single word I have shared and declared, concerning our present day new covenant priesthood to God, is entirely about being fed “on knowledge and understanding.” God’s present day church, the proclaimed body of Christ, absolutely needs this specific “knowledge and understanding,” of our new covenant and of our identity as God’s priesthood, that can only come to God’s church via “shepherds after My own heart.” If we are after the heart of God, then where do we go? We go after God, specifically after His heart, and that is precisely why a

The Mighty Benefits Of Our Priesthood In His Presence

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “‘I will fill the soul of the priests with abundance, and My people will be satisfied with My goodness,’ declares the Lord” Jeremiah 31:14 “For I satisfy the weary ones and refresh everyone who languishes” Jeremiah 31:25 If we know nothing about our priesthood in Jesus Christ, and of our consistent access to the presence of God, as His kingdom and priests, then we may completely miss out on the satisfaction and refreshment God presently offers and promises us, as His priests in His presence. As new covenant priests unto our God, we have our Abba Father’s Own guarantee, prophesied through Jeremiah and fulfilled in Jesus Christ, that God fills our prie

God Satisfies & Refreshes The Weary, In Himself

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “‘I will fill the soul of the priests with abundance, and My people will be satisfied with My goodness,’ declares the Lord” Jeremiah 31:14 “For I satisfy the weary ones and refresh everyone who languishes” Jeremiah 31:25 God wants to “satisfy” you with His goodness today so He may take away and heal you of your weariness. God wants to “refresh” your life in Him today, in His presence, so you may once more be looking joyfully and expectantly unto Him, instead of languishing over that which is of this life and this world. We have been looking at Jeremiah 31:14 for the past three days, concerning God filling the soul of His priests (and we are His pries

To Those Who Wait For Him

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I have hope in Him.’ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him” Lamentations 3:22-25 Praise God that our Lord’s lovingkindnesses and compassions are new, for us, every morning! The proof that we believe this is seen in our own spiritual posture, in our being the one who will actually wait for our Lord and seek Him, in order to receive into revelation life these very lovingkindnesses and compassions.

O “My Goodness!”

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “‘I will fill the soul of the priests with abundance, and My people will be satisfied with My goodness,’ declares the Lord” Jeremiah 31:14 God’s promise in this verse, in part, is that “My people will be satisfied with My goodness.” When? Is this for heaven, or for now, or for both? The first part of God’s promise is, “I will fill the soul of the priests with abundance.” Rather than getting caught up in a time line of when this may be, I simply say, this is for now, today, and for ever. And you yourself are the proof in the pudding, as they say. Dear beloved, born-again, blood-washed, Spirit-filled child of God, you are His priest right now. Draw nea

The Abundance Of God’s Goodness

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “‘I will fill the soul of the priests with abundance, and My people will be satisfied with My goodness,’ declares the Lord” Jeremiah 31:14 God desires to fill the soul of His priests with abundance, an abundance of Himself, so that all of His people will be satisfied with His goodness. In this day and age, of our new covenant in Jesus Christ, where our Lord is indwelling in our lives as both King and High Priest, God certainly has filled our soul with the abundance of Himself, of “Christ, who is our life” (Colossians 3:4). Moreover, we are all priests to God in His new covenant so we are in a most perfect position for each one of us to ascend to our

Today, Who Are The Levites Who Minister To Me?

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “I will multiply the descendants of David My servant and the Levites who minister to Me” Jeremiah 33:22 Our Lord God’s desire is to multiply “the Levites who minister to Me.” I have been sharing and declaring that this great blessing and call is directly towards us in this day, as God’s new covenant body of Christ. Notice that God did not merely say He would multiply the Levites. God specifically said He would multiply the Levites “who minister to Me.” This is the quality and level of priesthood that our Abba Father is looking for in the body of Christ today; priests who understand the heart of priesthood and who respond directly to God, to minister

The Difference Between the Melchizadek And The Levitical Priesthood - Life & Death

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Thus says the Lord, ‘If you can break My covenant for the day and My covenant for the night, so that day and night will not be at their appointed time, then My covenant may also be broken with David My servant so that he will not have a son to reign on his throne, and with the Levitical priests, My ministers’” Jeremiah 33: 20-21 In order for there to be a perpetual Levitical priesthood to God as “My ministers,” God was going to introduce a new covenant in which a son of David would perpetually reign upon His throne and which also there would be a perpetual new covenant priesthood. We have seen in our studies in Hebrews that Jesus Christ is our high

Seeing How Important Our Priesthood Is To God

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Thus says the Lord, ‘If you can break My covenant for the day and My covenant for the night, so that day and night will not be at their appointed time, then My covenant may also be broken with David My servant so that he will not have a son to reign on his throne, and with the Levitical priests, My ministers’” Jeremiah 33: 20-21. There is an extremely important point made about our priesthood to God in this text and it is this - The priesthood is as important to God as kingship is. They are both mentioned together in this new covenant promise made to “David My servant.” God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts (Isaiah 55:9) and in this declaratio

God The Father, Jeremiah, David, Jesus, The New Covenant, & Us

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Thus says the Lord, ‘If you can break My covenant for the day and My covenant for the night, so that day and night will not be at their appointed time, then My covenant may also be broken with David My servant so that he will not have a son to reign on his throne, and with the Levitical priests, My ministers’” Jeremiah 33: 20-21 This single prophetic text from Jeremiah truly embodies all that we have seen in our studies in the book of Hebrews, regarding Jesus Christ, Who presently is our reigning King and High Priest of God’s new covenant. This new covenant, declared and explained to us in Hebrews, is the covenant that God spoke of in this text thro

Never Lack A Man Before Me

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “For thus says the Lord, ‘ David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel; and the Levitical priests shall never lack a man before Me” Jeremiah 33:17 Here is another beautiful prophecy concerning Jesus, our Messiah, being identified in this way as the Lord began speaking through Jeremiah first saying “I will cause a righteous Branch of David to spring forth” (Jeremiah 33:15). Praise God! Jesus is God’s righteous Branch of David and He is the One Who presently is sitting upon the throne. We see in this scripture the tender love of our God for David, Who has fulfilled His promise to David in the Person of Jesus Christ, Who is

It Is Time To Multiply The Priesthood!

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “As the host of heaven can not be counted and the sand of the sea can not be measured, so I will multiply the descendants of David My servant and the Levites who minister to Me” Jeremiah 33:22 Our Lord God’s will is, and has always been, to “multiply” the priests “who minister to Me.” In this day and age, this word is clearly and specifically directed to the body of Christ, whom God our Father is calling to, saying, “you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood” (1st Peter 2:9). Let us each multiply our own understanding of, and participation in, our own blessed priesthood to God, so that this sacred and important truth may be revived within the church

Ministering To The Lord Fulfills Prophecy

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “As the host of heaven can not be counted and the sand of the sea can not be measured, so I will multiply the descendants of David My servant and the Levites who minister to Me” Jeremiah 33: 22 The prophet Jeremiah echoed the “word of the oath” that we have looked at in Hebrews (Hebrews 7:28, 6: 17-18), which was originally given in Psalm 110 regarding Messiah being both “Lord” (Vs 1) and “priest forever” (Vs 4). This is Jesus Christ, Who presently is our risen King and High Priest. This word of prophecy from Jeremiah, I believe, finds its fulfillment today in you and I. Indeed, the entire body of Christ represents this great word. We are the descend

My Spirit Within Me Seeks You Diligently - Pt 2

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “We have waited for You eagerly; Your name, even Your memory, is the desire of our souls. At night my soul longs for You, indeed, my spirit within me seeks You diligently” Isaiah 26:8-9 How blessed we are in Jesus Christ, my brothers and sisters, that we can say along with Isaiah, “my soul longs for you,” and we can also rejoice to say “my soul has found you and lives within you,” for we have been rescued by our Lord Jesus from sin, death, and separation and we now flourish in Him, for He has become our abundant and new life, in Himself. Yesterday we saw how blessed we are, as God’s “royal priesthood” (1st Peter 2:9), to have entered the reality of “

My Spirit Within Me Seeks You Diligently - Pt 1

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “We have waited for You eagerly; Your name, even Your memory, is the desire of our souls. At night my soul longs for You, indeed, my spirit within me seeks You diligently” Isaiah 26:8-9 “Indeed, my spirit within me seeks You diligently” - this is our blessed state of being, our normal Christian life, for all who have acquired the practice of ministering to the Lord. Simply and profoundly because we are priests unto God (1st Peter 2:5-9, Revelation 1:5-6), we wait for God eagerly, from within, in His presence, in His inner court indwelling presence. Here is where we are privileged to meet with and behold the glory of our Lord, “for God, who said, ‘lig

Effectual & Life Renewing Waiting

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings as eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary” Isaiah 40:31 Let us look at what it means to “wait for the Lord,” for it is imperative that we “wait” with the right spirit, if we want to indeed see and receive the renewing strength that God offers us. The Hebrew word for “wait” in this verse is “qavah,” whose full meaning is: to wait for, eagerly waits, expect, hopefully wait, look eagerly, waited for you eagerly, waited patiently. For me, the key to understanding this is: I wait upon my Lord - for my Lord, Himself, and, in this state,

Those Who Wait For The Lord

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings as eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary” Isaiah 40:31 Brothers and sisters in Christ, let us reverently and eagerly wait upon our Lord, so we may gain His Godly “new strength.” Waiting for the Lord, as God’s kingdom of priests (Revelation 1:5-6), is His clear call for all of us to wait upon Him - in His presence. For it is here, in His presence, in our “inner room” (Matthew 6:6), beholding Him, that we indeed do gain “new strength.” Our “new strength” is through the “new covenant” (Luke 22:20) of our Lord Jesus, with Whom we do b
