his is the revelation that is shaping my life today- my value to God is placed within me, it never diminishes, it is never tarnished in, or by, my lostness.
Luke 15:8-10 TPT
 Jesus gave them another parable: “There once was a woman who had ten valuable silver coins. When she lost one of them, she swept her entire house, diligently searching every corner of her house for that one lost coin.  When she finally found it, she gathered all her friends and neighbors for a celebration, telling them, ‘Come and celebrate with me! I had lost my precious silver coin, but now I’ve found it.’  That’s the way God responds every time one lost sinner repents and turns to him. He says to all his angels, ‘Let’s have a joyous celebration, for that one who was lost I have found!'”
This is the revelation that is shaping my life today- the cost of discipleship is high and beautiful.
Luke 14:28,33 TPT
 So don’t follow me without considering what it will cost you. For who would construct a house before first sitting down to estimate the cost to complete it?  Likewise, unless you surrender all to me, giving up all you possess, you cannot be one of my disciples.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- life is not what I see – true life is coming.
2 Peter 3:13-14 TPT
 But as we wait, we trust in God’s royal proclamation to be fulfilled. There are coming heavens new in quality, and an earth new in quality, where righteousness will be fully at home.  So, my beloved friends, with all that you have to look forward to, may you be eager to be found living pure lives when you come into his presence, without blemish and filled with peace.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- my sin does not turn God away, even when I reject His ways.
Luke 13:34 TPT
 O city of Jerusalem, you are the city that murders your prophets! You are the city that pelts to death with stones the very messengers who were sent to deliver you! So many times I have longed to gather your wayward children together around me, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings-but you were too stubborn to let me.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- I am new, I just need to be me!
2 Peter 1:5-8 TPT
 So devote yourselves to lavishly supplementing your faith with goodness, and to goodness add understanding,  and to understanding add the strength of self-control, and to self-control add patient endurance, and to patient endurance add godliness,  and to godliness add mercy toward your brothers and sisters, and to mercy toward others add unending love.  Since these virtues are already planted deep within, and you possess them in abundant supply, they will keep you from being inactive or fruitless in your pursuit of knowing Jesus Christ more intimately.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- religion deceives us and keeps us from the house of God.
Luke 11:52 TPT
 “You are nothing but hopeless frauds, you experts of religion! You take away from others the key that opens the door to the house of knowledge. Not only do you lock the door and refuse to enter, you do your best to keep others from the truth.”

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today – the faith life is a life of awareness and responsibility.
Hebrews 12:1-2 TPT
 As for us, we have all of these great witnesses who encircle us like clouds. So we must let go of every wound that has pierced us and the sin we so easily fall into. Then we will be able to run life’s marathon race with passion and determination, for the path has been already marked out before us.  We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection. His example is this: Because his heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be his, he endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today – we cannot go back and change the past but we can be free from its shaping influence, otherwise the past will keep me from the fullness of Kingdom life.
Luke 9:62 TPT
 Jesus responded, “Why do you keep looking backward to your past and have second thoughts about following me? When you turn back you are useless to God’s kingdom realm.”
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today – there is a subtle but powerful story afoot that causes quarrels, fights and war.
James 4:1-2 NLT
 What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don’t they come from the evil desires at war within you?  You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them
This is the revelation that is shaping my life today – is rich full life very different from the way I often shape mine?!
Hebrews 13:1-3,16 TPT
 No matter what, make room in your heart to love every believer.  And show hospitality to strangers, for they may be angels from God showing up as your guests.  Identify with those who are in prison as though you were there suffering with them, and those who are mistreated as if you could feel their pain.  We will show mercy to the poor and not miss an opportunity to do acts of kindness for others, for these are the true sacrifices that delight God’s heart.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today – it’s all about my heart. God wants my life to flow from my heart’s engagement with Him.
Luke 6:43-45 NLT
 “A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit.  A tree is identified by its fruit. Figs are never gathered from thornbushes, and grapes are not picked from bramble bushes.  A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life – I must make a clear assessment of the wisdom I am allowing to shape my life and who is its author.
James 3:17 NLT
 But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.
