Psalm 24:10 (TPT) You ask, “Who is this King of Glory?” He is the Lord of Victory, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, the invincible commander of heaven’s hosts! Yes, he is the King of Glory! Pause in his presence
Beloved, pause in My presence and seek Me. Ask Me who I AM, and let Me reveal My heart for you and for all My children. Nothing is more powerful than a person who understands who they are and what they were created to be. And beloved, you were created to be loved by Me.
So wait on Me. Search Me as the most precious of gifts. Trust Me to reveal Myself to you. Ask Me for wisdom and I will joyously grant it to you. I have so much to share. Let Me show you who you are by teaching you who I AM. Walk in the confidence of one who is loved by Me. Continue reading “Walk in Confidence”
Psalm 77:1 (VOICE) I cry up to heaven, “My God, True God,” and He hears.
Beloved, when you cry out to Me, I always hear. No matter where you are or what you’ve done, I AM always listening. I do not turn a deaf ear to you in punishment or neglect. Those who know Me know that does not align with My character.
Just as an earthly parent uses wisdom in granting their children’s requests, so do I. In the moments I don’t respond the way you expected, know that is not a sign of My neglect, but rather of your inappropriate expectations. I’m not a genie in a bottle to call and command, so be sure that is not your expectation.
What I AM is El Chai – the Living God, and I love My children, and am mindful of their needs and their cries – of all things concerning them. So know that I AM present and listening. I will never leave you nor forsake you. So cry out to Me, beloved, for I AM listening.
Continue reading “I AM Listening”
Psalm 46:10 (NASB) Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
Beloved, cease striving. You don’t need to earn My love. It is freely given; and it is given in more abundance than you could begin to imagine. So freely receive, knowing that I love you beyond measure. My heart is steadfast toward you. My love is everlasting.
So function from a place of acceptance – knowing My love is yours. Nothing you do can earn more of My love, nor can any mistake cause you to lose it. I’m not fickle, nor am I easily distracted. My gaze is on you. My heart is fixed on you. So be saturated in My immeasurable love, and from that place be transformed. Continue reading “Beyond Measure”
John 10:27 (AMP) The sheep that are My own hear My voice and listen to Me; I know them, and they follow Me.
Beloved, refuse to believe the lies that the enemy throws your way. You are Mine, and those who are Mine know My voice and they will not follow another’s. So pause as you listen, and recognize who is speaking that you might rightly determine which words are of value and to which you should pay no heed.
For the enemy of your soul will always toss “thought bombs” at you like grenades. Their intention is to maim and destroy. Refuse to give them power by simply rejecting them as you identify their origin. Toss them out, beloved. Take every thought captive and make it submit to My truth.
Beloved, you know Me. You know My heart towards you is good. Refuse to believe anything less. Refuse to settle for anything less. Know that you are precious, prized, the apple of My eye – My heart’s desire. Know the truth of your identity as you rest in the cocoon of My love. Continue reading “Refuse to Believe the Lies”
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”
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”
Luke 1:33 (NKJV) “And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”
Beloved, I AM ageless. I AM beyond time. To know Me and the things of Me, you must embrace eternity. Your time on earth may be fleeting, but eternity is everlasting. Embrace the joy of knowing Me, and dwell in My presence.
Look to Me in times of trial. Look to Me in times of joy. Trust that with your eyes on Me, your walk will be secure. I reign. Let Me help you stay Kingdom-minded. Yield to Me – let Me embrace you in My loving arms, for I AM Olam Zerowa – the Everlasting Arms. Continue reading “Embrace Eternity”
Proverbs 1:7 (TPT) How then does a man gain the essence of wisdom? We cross the threshold of true knowledge when we live in obedient devotion to God. Stubborn know-it-alls will never stop to do this, for they scorn true wisdom and knowledge.
Beloved, live in obedient devotion to Me. Comb through My Word, and discover what true obedience looks like, then walk in it. Resist the urge to dismiss that which you don’t understand. Instead inquire of My Holy Spirit for clarity, and truly learn of Me.
Embrace wisdom, for true wisdom comes from Me. Remember My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are My ways your ways. Expect the unexpected, and trust My ability to lead as you seek to humbly submit. That, beloved, is the essence of wisdom. Continue reading “Obedient Devotion”
Matthew 14:27 (TPT) Then Jesus said, “Be brave and don’t be afraid. I am here!”
Beloved, resist the urge to succumb to fear, for I AM always with you. Shore up your courage, and trust in Me. Take My hand and step out of the boat – step out of your safe and familiar circumstances, and trust that though you walk into the unknown (and sometimes even seemingly impossible), I AM strengthening you with My right hand of power.
I have you in My grip and will never let you go. Keep your eyes on Me, and move ahead. Withstand the onslaught of fear, and refuse to cower in the face of challenges. Persevere with Holy Spirit empowered strength, and step into all I have for you. Behold I AM calling, beloved. Step out of the boat. Continue reading “Step Out of the Boat”
Acts 4:13 (TPT) The council members were astonished as they witnessed the bold courage of Peter and John, especially when they discovered that they were just ordinary men who had never had religious training. Then they began to understand the effect Jesus had on them simply by spending time with him.
Beloved, boldness doesn’t have to come from training or education. Boldness can come from firm and unwavering belief. True faith doesn’t come from unquestionable physical evidence, for where would faith be in simple fact? To exercise faith is to be confident in what is understood through less tangible means.
So rather than waiting for irrefutable evidence or certain levels of education, instead allow yourself to be bold in the Holy Spirit. Allow Me to lead and direct you – often in ways you’d never expect, and see how I move in and through you for My glory. That, beloved, is true faith – being wholly yielded to Me. Continue reading “Be Bold in the Holy Spirit”
