From the desk of Steve Shultz:
Oh how this Scripture rings true: "But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong" (1 Corinthians 1:27).
Kent Simpson shares a great prophetic word for this time and I think the above Scripture will speak volumes for this year.
Be greatly encouraged by Kent Simpson's latest article as he shares this word of the Lord: "I have not chosen you because of your great abilities or for your scholarly intellect, but because you are the least likely to be paraded around by the people as one of their elect."

Birthing in the New Year - "I Am Preparing You For Something Big"
Now that we have stepped into the New Year of 2014, I felt that you needed to know what our Lord is saying in part about what you can expect.
God Chooses the Weak Things of This World
2 Peter 1:19 "And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts..."
"As the morning yields to the rising of the Son, the New Millennium attempts to follow after a more earthly one. 2014 will usher in many changes; with each season the Spirit will teach you many new things. Some will hear what you have learned with cheers and others with jeers. There will be an array of changes in both the spiritual and the natural realms. After you have been established you will see My Spirit has been continually moving before you, stretching your faith further than it ever has been before. I am preparing you for something big that you will not just hear about but be in the middle of, My resurrection power."
1 Corinthians 1:25-27 "Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty..."
"I have not chosen you because of your great abilities or for your scholarly intellect, but because you are the least likely to be paraded around by the people as one of their elect. Quite the opposite will occur. You will discover that even though the signs and wonders are following you, many will still not believe you."
"The Truth Resides Within You..."
Matthew 5:43-45 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in Heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust."
"Do not feel that they are rejecting you, for it is My truth they cannot believe, not yours. That truth resides within you, for My Spirit lives in you and I will tell you what you need to do. Back away when they say, 'We are coming after you.' If you stand and fight them you will surely lose. For My weapons are not made of hate, and when you stand down it will be My love that defeats their foolish ways."
1 John 5:18 "We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him."
"The more you fight off your flesh from wanting to retaliate the more freedom you give My Spirit to do battle for you, so let go of your defenses and allow Me to navigate the supernatural forces around you, then no one will be able to touch you."
