I know you have so many questions. I know you are limited in your capacity. I know you quickly grow tired, quickly become discouraged, quickly forget why you have endeavored in the first place. I know you are but weak, but even still you are My Beloved, the center and source of my affections. Continue Reading…


For I am truly greater than all the circumstances you are facing. I am bigger, wiser, stronger, more powerful than all of these things. So do not look to your circumstances, or to your own self, but rely on me, rely on my spirit, rely on my plans for you. Cast your doubts to the side and move in faith following the path I’ve set before you, knowing I would not call you to this direction if there were no hope for you. And as you see things turn out very differently than you originally thought, do not lose hope. Do not allow yourself to become discouraged, for I am more than able to redeem, heal, and restore all the mistakes and failures encountered along the way. Continue Reading…

The Courage You Need

Neil Vermillion —  April 27, 2016 —  Comments


As you face your heartaches and fears do not allow them to intimidate you. As you see your greatest challenges, the challenges that have beaten you in the past, approaching you once again do not be tempted to relive your memories. Instead, look to the future I have given you. Look to what I have shown you. Look to what I have revealed to your heart and your spirit. Look to what I have spoken to you already. Do not look to your past to repeat your failures, hurts, and heartaches but look to the provision and promise I have already given you. Continue Reading…


Today you are sitting at a precipice. In weeks prior you have been shown the landscape, you have been given insights and clues, you have been given little hints and foreshadows, you have been primed and prepared for this day. Today I am pulling back yet another layer of understanding of my plans for you. For you have perceived hints and rumors, but today I am confirming my words and my plans for you. Continue Reading…


Today I am reminding you of the invitation to my joy. For you have known my joy already, but you forget it in your daily busyness and goings on. So allow me to remind you of the joy we have in our fellowship together. I will remind you in your times of discouragement and heartache, my joy is available to you, my peace is available to you, my friendship and fellowship is available to you. All these things, and even more, are always available to you, My Beloved. So remember this as you find yourself surrounded with sadness, gloom, and despair, for I am with you in all things, and my joy and my presence are always available to you. Continue Reading…


I see your heart’s desires. I see your heart’s motives. I see your plans. I see your dreams. I see what inspires you. I see what drives you. And in all these things I am not only aware, but I am also involved. For you think I am distant, uninvolved, unaware, but nothing could be further from the truth. For even the littlest details of your life do not escape me. Even the hairs on your head are known by me, not only the number, but the length, texture, density, and condition as well. For there is nothing that escapes my sight. Continue Reading…


Even though you do not see the end, and you do not have hope, know I am with you still. Though you do not always perceive it or feel it, hope is there for in my presence hope abides with us. There is a greater hope alive within you, even this very day. As you find yourself in a blizzard surrounded with so many options you cannot distinguish one from another, know I am with you still. Continue Reading…


Allow me to commend you for your faithfulness. Allow me to commend you for your hard work, for your sacrifice, for your obedience and willingness to go where I have guided you. For you have heard my voice from a distance and you have responded. I have written my plans in the sky and you have seen them and taken notice. You have sought me in my word and I have met you there. I have shown you my heart by my spirit and you did not turn me away. Continue Reading…


Even as you see yourself failing in your own eyes, let me encourage you to be kind with yourself. As you see your neighbor failing, let me encourage you to be slow to condemn him. As you see the world and events around you continue to decline, let me encourage you to be slow to criticize and presume there is no hope. For in all these things I am still at work. In all the failures and catastrophes I am working and I am redeeming and I am teaching and I am creating. Continue Reading…


As you sit before your greatest challenges be slow to become discouraged. Take time to inquire of me for I will show you my excitement and enthusiasm regarding these matters. For you are at the brink of your next step of your growth and development. I am with you, by your side, step by step, as a loving coach, instructing you and walking with you hand in hand. For in this very moment the challenges set before you have been designed to cause you to grow. And in these challenges you will discover new levels of strength and competency – things you did not previously believe about yourself. Continue Reading…

There are so many issues presented before you in this hour of your life. And many of these issues will compel you to withdraw, to retreat, to give up because they are so hurtful and so personal to you. So allow me to speak into your life this very day, this very hour. For I have seen your hurts, and I have seen your weaknesses. I have sought you from afar, and have made myself close to you. And in this closeness we will share all things together – even those things you dislike, those things you want to hide and run away from. Continue Reading…

Understand many of the experiences you encounter have not been given to bring you from one victory to the next. Not all things have been given you to build your ego, or increase the wall of your trophies and accomplishments. Understand many experiences have been brought in order to train you, refine you, teach you, improve you, and expand you. So while you will ultimately walk in total victory, understand there will be failures along the way. Continue Reading…

In all things know my grace is always with you. Know my spirit is always within you. For I have anointed you and chosen you to carry out my work. I have chosen you to work with me in all things. And since I have chosen you, have I not also empowered you? If I have anointed you, have I left you ill-equipped? Surely I am not only with you, but have also provided you with all you need to accomplish and complete the call upon your life. Continue Reading…

Do not allow yourself to be confused, frightened, or overwhelmed as I continue to bring greater and greater revelation to you. For when you were young I spoke to you as a child, but as you have grown I have chosen to speak to you as an adult. And so in the same way, as you have grown, and have done well with all I’ve given you in the past I am giving you more. I am giving you additional insights and understanding even this very day. Continue Reading…

As you step forward, knowing I am with you, I will show myself strong on your behalf. For as you move in faith, believing, you will begin to manifest and demonstrate my spirit within you. And though you would like everything to be accomplished easily and immediately, know there is a process of growth and development at work within and through you. For I see you finished, and I know where you are going, so I am guiding and directing you with all these things in mind. But this does not mean you will travel and arrive without incident, without struggle, without confusion, or without delays. Continue Reading…

Today allow me to assure you I am confronting your limits. I see your limiting mindsets, and I see the limiting emotions within your heart. I am bringing all these things to your attention and exposing their influence in your life. And though this is uncomfortable, painful, and even scary, it is for your good. For I am exposing, confronting, and removing all these things in your life because they hinder my love for you. Continue Reading…

And as you come to know me, you will discover and experience your great delight and satisfaction found only in me. For in my presence is fulness of joy. In our fellowship and union together you will experience immeasurable, unspeakable, unpredictable bliss. And your heart will be full and your mind will be amazed. Your entire being will be surrounded with, and saturated in, the warmth of my spirit and you will know you are loved beyond any shadow of a doubt. Continue Reading…

I love you completely. I love you unconditionally. I love you eternally. I love you with no limits and I embrace every aspect of who you are, even the parts of your life you hate. I love and accept every single thing about you, for there is nothing hidden from my site. So come to me when you are weary and confused, for I will not turn you away. Come to me when you seek answers, for I will not be harsh with you. Come to me when you are tired and have no energy remaining, for I will be kind with you. Continue Reading…

For I see where you are, my Dearest. I know where you have come from, My Sweet Love. I remember you since before the beginning, for there has never been a time when I did not know you. You are in the very center of my attention and my gaze and affection and energy are totally fixed upon you. I see the hurts within your heart, and love you still. I see the accusation against you, even the accusation you raise against your own self, and I still choose you. I love you and always will. Continue Reading…


Even in your misery and disappointment I am here with you, pulling you to the high roads, the roads you would never select for yourself. I have seen the results of your self-governance, and so I have intervened on your behalf. I am guiding you and putting your feet on solid ground, and pointing you in the direction you desire and need to travel. I have overwhelmed you with my goodness and my mercy. I have seen your hearts. I have seen your hurts. I have seen your need. Continue Reading…
