Romans 5:2 (NASB) …and we exult in hope of the glory of God.
Beloved, find exuberant joy in hope – the hope of Me and of My glory. Exult in Me throughout the nations. May your praise abound in all the earth. For I AM worthy of all honor and praise, so let your hope rest in Me.
Glory in the peace that hope in Me brings. Allow that confident assurance to shine forth in your countenance that those who see you might see and ask about about the foundation of your hope. This way your hope in Me isn’t simply your own bedrock, but also a beacon to all. Continue reading “Exult in Me Throughout the Nations”
John 8:32 (CSB) “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Beloved, resist the urge to stay in what is familiar simply because it is known. Instead open yourself to Me and My Word that you might know truth and walk in freedom. Because only the truth has the power to set you free, and truth is found in Me.
So come to Me and abide, that you might know truth. My ways are not your ways, and they may stretch your understanding, but it is better to be stretched by truth and live in the light, than to intentionally stay in darkness. So choose the light and freedom of truth.
Jeremiah 20:11 (VOICE) But I am not alone. The Eternal is here with me. He stands beside me, as a dreaded warrior. That is why my tormentors will fail so miserably. They cannot win. Their humiliation and permanent dishonor will be remembered for all time.
Beloved, align with Me, and I will stand beside you and in defense of you. No one can stand against Me, so join forces with Me. I AM victorious. I AM faithful. And I AM fiercely protective of My children.
You need not worry about that which stands against you as you stand with Me. The power is not in you, but in Who you stand with. Look to Me and join forces with Me.
Psalm 91:1 (TPT) When you sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai, you are hidden in the strength of God Most High.
Beloved, I AM ever with you – in every moment and any circumstance, I AM YHVH Shammah (the Lord is present). What can touch you as you hide under My wing? What harm can come when you are in My care? Indeed, rest in Me – the Maker of heaven and earth, for I AM God.
So rest, enthroned with Me and under My covering. Take your place of authority and influence even as you dwell with Me. Reflect Me. Hide in Me. Be strengthened in Me, for I AM El Shaddai – the all-sufficient One, find what you need in Me. I AM good and I AM able, so trust your care to Me. Hide in My strength, and draw your strength from Me. Continue reading “Be Strengthened in Me”
2 Peter 3:14 (TPT) 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.
Beloved, with so much to look forward to, the temptation is great to be over eager as you wait for the coming promises. And yet, you know that My timing is perfect. And I would have you know peace – peace in the waiting.
Resist the urge to think something is wrong if I haven’t brought my promises to pass and simply trust Me. Trust My timing. Trust I know best, and rest in Me. Refuse to lose the joy of the journey as you eagerly anticipate the next destination point. Instead, embrace each moment with joy as you know peace.
Psalm 68:4 (CJB) But let the righteous rejoice and be glad in God’s presence; yes, let them exult and rejoice.
Beloved, may I be praised throughout the nations. May the sounds of rejoicing and exultation resound, for I AM worthy of all praise. So bring forth your unreserved, sincere offerings from a heart overflowing with gratitude and love.
Lift your voice and lift your hands – praise offerings before your King. Dance before My throne – unhindered and unashamed – in complete abandon, hold nothing back. For I AM worthy of your all, and I find pleasure in your offering.
John 8:31 (VOICE) If you hear My voice and abide in My word, you are truly My disciples;
Beloved, will you take the time to listen? Will you take time to abide? My Word is sustenance for your soul, so refuse to be malnourished and instead feast on that which is truly good.
If you want to share about Me, you must first know Me. And knowing Me happens by feasting on My Word. So abide in My Word – chewing, meditating – and hear Me speak to you that you might know Me intimately, for that is where true freedom is found.
Romans 10:10 (VOICE) Belief begins in the heart and leads to a life that’s right with God; confession departs from our lips and brings eternal salvation.
Beloved, look deep in your heart and find My presence there. I AM always with you, and happy to guide you. You have only to seek, only to ask. I AM here. Believe in Me. Put your trust in Me.
Regardless of what the world says, determine what you will say. What will the confession of your faith be? Will your words and your walk bring credence to your confession of faith? Or will they belie it? Beloved, believe in Me. Then walk and speak as one who does. Continue reading “Believe in Me”
Hebrews 11:1 (VOICE) Faith is the assurance of things you have hoped for, the absolute conviction that there are realities you’ve never seen.
Beloved, believe in Me with absolute conviction. Have utter faith and confidence in Me and in My Word. I AM fully steadfast and completely faithful. So rest in Me.
Faith is believing even without “proof.” It is trusting in an understanding that transcends the natural mind. For believing that which is fact requires no trust and no belief in anything greater than yourself.
True faith requires humility because it is rooted in hope and undergirded by a childlike belief. It cannot be proved in the way logic would demand, and yet it has strength that surpasses logic. So walk in that radical faith and believe with absolute conviction.
Mark 11:24 (TPT) This is the reason I urge you to boldly believe for whatever you ask for in prayer—believe that you have received it and it will be yours.
Beloved, turn your faith into the currency of prayer. Ask, seek, and knock. The door will be opened to you. So align yourself with Me, and immerse yourself in Me. Meditate on My Word. Know My heart and trust Me to know yours.
From that place of intimacy – in the beauty of being known, recognize that the more time you spend with Me, the more your desires align with Mine. And as you pray and petition, you begin reiterating My desires back to Me, and we work together as one – expanding My Kingdom. Continue reading “Turn Your Faith into the Currency of Prayer”
