Open Your Heart and Believe

Genesis 18:14 (AMP) Is anything too difficult or too wonderful for the Lord? At the appointed time, when the season [for her delivery] comes, I will return to you and Sarah will have a son.

Beloved, I AM capable of the miraculous, so stretch your faith and open your heart wider and believe. Resist the urge to only have faith in Me for the things you think I’m able to accomplish. I AM so much greater than you even know. 

Expect the unexpected. Expectation like this is an active waiting, not an entitlement. It is a joyful hope based on who you know I AM, and what you –  in faith – know Me to be capable of. I AM the God of the supernatural, so open your heart and believe.

Be Bold in the Holy Spirit

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.

Lunchtime Live: Boldly Be You

Call to Me and Receive by Faith

Luke 17:13 (TPT) They shouted to him, “Mighty Lord, our wonderful Master! Won’t you have mercy on us and heal us?”

Beloved, pursue wholeness and blessing. Refuse to settle for anything less. You know My character. Declare who I AM in faith of what you have yet to see. Call Me by name and by the attributes of My character, and then expect in faith. 

I AM YHVH Tsaba, the Lord of Hosts. I AM YHVH Shalom, the Lord your peace. I AM merciful and righteous, slow to anger and full of grace. Call to Me, beloved, and then receive by faith. 

Be Strong in Faith

Luke 17:19 (AMP) Jesus said to him, “Get up and go [on your way]. Your faith [your personal trust in Me and your confidence in God’s power] has restored you to health.”

Beloved, be strong in faith, for the God you serve is worthy. I AM El Shaddai – God Almighty, the all-sufficient One. You can have full confidence in Me, for I AM all in all and nothing is too hard for Me.

As you move in confident faith, you broadcast to all your declaration that I AM God. This is a powerful spiritual weapon. It is that kind of faith that makes room for the supernatural to occur. So be strong in faith, and refuse to back down. Know that I AM that I AM, and I AM worthy.

Refuse to Walk in Fear

Isaiah 43:2 (VOICE) When you face stormy seas I will be there with you with endurance and calm; you will not be engulfed in raging rivers. If it seems like you’re walking through fire with flames licking at your limbs, keep going; you won’t be burned.

Beloved, refuse to walk in fear. No matter what you face, I face it with you. Your journey will always include hardships – for everyone’s does, but as you walk in confidence with Me at your side, you will prevail. 

Resist the urge to be overwhelmed by troubles as they come. Instead look to Me for the path through the flames. I AM with you to guide you. So refuse to walk in fear because you walk with Me.

Trust Me to Do What is Best

Matthew 3:17 (VOICE) Voice from Heaven: This is My Son, whom I love; this is the Apple of My eye; with Him I am well pleased.

Beloved, there is nothing I wouldn’t do to bless you. You are the apple of My eye – more precious to Me than words can express, such is the depth of My love for you. But I will not thoughtlessly give you that which will harm you.

So ask Me for what you will without reservation, but then trust Me to do what is best. Resist the urge to assign negative motives or heart intentions to My decisions, and instead remember that I see all and I know all, therefore My judgment is perfect. And above all, remember I move from love. 

YHVH Melek Olam (Lord King Forever)

Psalm 52:1 (VOICE) Why do you boast of all the trouble you stir up, O mighty one, when the constant, unfailing love of God is what truly lasts?

Beloved, refuse to be moved when the perceived victories of the enemy are flaunted in your face. Stir up your faith, and remind yourself that I AM the victorious One, and you stand with Me. And My love is everlasting.

So wait for the end of the story – for if My Son’s story ended on the cross, it would be a sad one indeed. But that was not the end, beloved. He rose again – in victory over death. 

So when the outlook looks bleak, stand fast in your faith and declare the truth of who I AM: YHVH Melek Olam – Lord King Forever, and I reign in victory.

YHVH Gibbor Milchamah (the Lord Mighty in Battle)

Psalm 24:8 (VOICE) Who is the glorious King? The Eternal who is powerful and mightily equipped for battle.

Beloved, rejoice for I AM the Lord of Hosts – YHVH Tsaba, the Lord mighty in battle – YHVH Gibbor Milchamah. Nothing defeats Me. Stand fast by My side and trust Me, refusing to allow your faith to waver, for you know My name. 

Beloved, is anything to hard for Me? Is anything beyond My reach? Refuse to allow circumstances or intimidation tactics from the enemy to induce fear or doubt. I AM the victorious One and you stand with Me.

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.

Stand Fast and Trust in Me

Jeremiah 32:17 (VOICE) Eternal Lord, with Your outstretched arm and Your enormous power You created the heavens and the earth. Nothing is too difficult for You.

Beloved, nothing is too difficult for Me. Will you believe what your natural senses are telling you above what My Word says? Surely not. Stand fast in faith. Ask for My truth over any situation, then hold fast to what I say and refuse to be moved. 

I delight in showing My power. I delight in making the impossible possible. I delight in changing hearts, healing the broken, and restoring that which seems beyond repair. Stand fast and trust in Me.
