Revelation 12:11 (TPT) They conquered him completely through the blood of the Lamb and the powerful word of his testimony. They triumphed because they did not love and cling to their own lives, even when faced with death.
Walk in victory, beloved, for the Lamb has overcome. Live your faith boldly. Let your actions speak loudly your faith in your King. Hold nothing more dearly than your trust in Me – not life or death – for the grave does not reign supreme, I do.
This place of bold assurance is where true power comes from. A heart that stands secure will know peace, for it knows nothing can threaten that which truly matters because victory is assured. Beloved, your eternity is in Me, and nothing can steal it away. So walk boldly in that power and the authority you have in Me, and move mightily on behalf of the Kingdom and My righteousness.
Genesis 15:5-6 (VOICE) God took him outside to show him something. Eternal One: Look up at the stars, and try to count them all if you can. There are too many to count! Your descendants will be as many as the stars. Abram believed God and trusted in His promises, so God counted it to his favor as righteousness.
Beloved, trust the One who has promised because I AM faithful. My promises are God-sized and require faith. You may ask yourself if you are crazy to believe, but I AM the God of the impossible because with Me all things are possible.
So dare to believe what I say. And even when the waiting seems long or the fulfillment doesn’t look like you expected, trust with an open heart. I see things differently than you do, for My perspective is eternal. Shift your perspective to Mine rather than trying to draw Me to yours. Dare to believe.
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”
Hebrews 11:6 (AMP) But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him.
Beloved, believe and obey. Mere faith is not enough. Your faith must prompt you to action, and that action must be righteous and pleasing. It must prompt you to obedience. For faith without works is dead. Indeed, it is a useless faith.
And in the same way you know a tree is good by the good fruit it bears, so your faith is proved good by the sweet fruit it produces. And may your motivation for action not be to gain the rewards that come from Me (though they will surely come), but rather from a heart so full of love for Me that you cannot NOT act.
So beloved, let your faith take form, and act in a way that brings joy and pleasure to Me. And may you relentlessly pursue Me that you might accurately know what that looks like. Continue reading “Believe and Obey”
1 Corinthians 16:13-14 (VOICE) Listen, stay alert, stand tall in the faith, be courageous, and be strong. Let love prevail in your life, words, and actions.
Beloved, stay alert. Refuse to let fear and worry take root. Stand tall in courageous faith – not in your own ability, but rather in Mine. For I AM able. Nothing is too hard for Me. And while you may think you believe that, realize doubting your own ability is doubting My ability to work through you.
So trust Me unreservedly, and live from a place of steadfast confidence in the One who made you. Love like I love, and live as I’ve called you to live. Stay alert for anything that threatens to impede that, and live strong, for you are able.
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”
1 Chronicles 28:20 (VOICE) Be strong, courageous, and effective. Do not fear or be dismayed. I know that the Eternal God, who is my God, is with you. He will not abandon you or forsake you until you have finished all the work for the temple of the Eternal.
Beloved, do you think for one moment that I would call you to something and then desert you – unequipped and without support? Never. Step in bold confidence – not in your own ability, but rather in My faithfulness. I AM with you always, so rest assured.
Be filled with courage. A courage grounded in the One who has called and equipped you. I AM your source of strength. So what have you to fear? Nothing is too hard for Me, and I AM fully able to see that you successfully walk out all I have called you to. So yield to Me – trusting Me to lead, and be filled with divine courage.
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.
