My Humble Ones

2 Timothy 4:8 (TPT) There’s a crown of righteousness waiting in heaven for me, and I know that my Lord will reward me on his day of righteous judgment. And this crown is not only waiting for me, but for all who love and long for his unveiling.

Beloved, I will not withhold My blessings from My faithful ones. Those who have bowed their heads in humility are prepared to be crowned in glory. And beloved, you have chosen the humble road. You have chosen selflessness. You’ve chosen to place others before yourself – and that choice has cost you dearly. 

And yet, time after time you’ve chosen the humble road – in part because it’s all you’ve ever known, but in part because you’ve known it pleases Me. And though this road is the one less chosen, and though the cost is high (death to self), the glory I bestow upon My humble ones is well worth the cost. 

So receive, My beloved, for My blessing I will not withhold. And My glory I will lavish upon you. Be swept away in the secret place – a place where no one else can see, and yet I see. I see you – My eye is ever upon you. And I will grant you peace and abundance, so receive. Continue reading “My Humble Ones”

Radical Obedience

2 Timothy 4:2 (TLB) to preach the Word of God urgently at all times, whenever you get the chance, in season and out, when it is convenient and when it is not. Correct and rebuke your people when they need it, encourage them to do right, and all the time be feeding them patiently with God’s Word.

Beloved, resist the urge to be silent simply because it stretches you to speak. Await My nudges and act in obedience when they come. True obedience isn’t reflected when you “feel like” obeying, but rather when you do so without consideration of your feelings in deference to Me. 

Trust that I know what you’re capable of. Trust that I know the timing and the words and actions for you to execute, and that I will lead you accordingly. I AM sovereign. Yield to Me.

Brave, Constant, and Disciplined

2 Timothy 1:7 (AMP) For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].

Beloved, refuse to allow what your eyes see to sway what your heart believes. Stand fast in the knowledge of who I AM and who I’ve made you. Remind yourself of My faithfulness. Recall to mind the countless times I’ve acted on your behalf. 

Then when troubles come, they will not shake you nor cause you to quake in fear, for you will steadfastly know I AM God, and you have nothing to fear. Be brave, constant, and disciplined, beloved, for I AM the One who sustains you.

Feast Extravagantly

2 Timothy 3:16 (VOICE) All of Scripture is God-breathed; in its inspired voice, we hear useful teaching, rebuke, correction, instruction, and training for a life that is right

Beloved, not one word of My Word is wasted. Its depths you can spend a lifetime plumbing. There is wisdom and insight and instruction throughout. Ask Me for revelation. Ask Me to bring forth the intricacies, and share with you the wisdom of the ages. 

Remember the study of My Word is no light, inconsequential matter. It takes time and dedication. So be intentional, beloved. Build on your understanding of My Word day after day, word after word. Be nourished, sustained, and become fruitful as you feast extravagantly on My Word.

Adonai Ori (the Lord your Light) and YHVH Shalom (the Lord your Peace)

2 Timothy 1:7 (AMP) For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].

Beloved, push back as fear tries to encroach upon you. You know it is not from Me. Find strength and rest in My presence and resist the urge to succumb to anything dark, like confusion or anxiety. I AM Adonai Ori – the Lord your light, and light dispels darkness. 

So stand in the light unafraid. Refuse to be moved or intimidated by darkness around you. You know Me and you know My voice, refuse to be moved by another’s. Stand fast and be at peace, for I AM YHVH Shalom, the Lord your peace. 

Deeper Still

2 Timothy 3:16 (TPT) Every Scripture has been written by the Holy Spirit, the breath of God. It will empower you by its instruction and correction, giving you the strength to take the right direction and lead you deeper into the path of godliness.

Beloved, My Word is living and active – infused with the breath of My Spirit. It is invaluable for gaining wisdom and direction. It instructs and chastens. It comforts and encourages. It speaks to your heart. Receive the light it brings, for that light is Me.

Come deeper, beloved. I stand beckoning you – inviting you closer still. There is more – always more – to be had in Me. Behold, I AM Galah Raz, the Revealer of Mysteries – the All-Knowing One. You cannot plumb My depths, but My Word invites you to try. Come deeper still, beloved. Deeper still.

Let Victory Be Your Song

2 Timothy 1:7 (VOICE) You see, God did not give us a cowardly spirit but a powerful, loving, and disciplined spirit.

Beloved, let My love for you embolden you. Let it fill you with confidence in Me. You walk in victory when you walk with Me. Refuse discouragement. The enemy will always try to distract you with seeming failures and he loves to malign My character, but you know and walk in Truth.

Let victory be your song. Let My joy wrap through your soul filling you with strength. Radiate the assurance of one who knows Me. Be filled with the knowledge of Me and be overwhelmed by My love.
