I AM Listening

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.

So be at peace. Quiet your soul. Trust that the afflictions of this world will pass, but My love remains steadfast and true. Let My love uplift you and carry you as on eagles wings. Let My hand guide you, and let My Spirit comfort you.  Continue reading “Elohei khol-Nechamah (God of all Comfort)”

YHVH Gibbor Milchamah (the Lord Mighty in Battle) {Moments with God}

{I declare} There is none like You. No one worthy – no one who can compare. No one can stand against You. And should they try, they would melt like wax before You if they stood as Your adversary. For there is no one like You in heaven or on earth. You are majestic and awesome – mighty beyond our comprehension. So I choose to stand with You. And come what may, I will remain steadfast, for by Your side is the only place I want to be. So where You are, I will be too. I trust You. I yield to Your plans. You are mighty and You are good. You are the Holy One. You are YHVH Gibbor Milchamah – the Lord Mighty in Battle. And You are worthy.

{Sensing the Lord’s presence hovering – like with the pillars of cloud and fire. In the same way Moses refused to move without the presence of the Almighty, so my heart stands fast with His presence. And I sense His pleasure over my unwillingness to move without Him. It’s as if He is giving a look that says, “Well done.”}

Psalm 76:7 (TPT) No wonder you are greatly feared! You are the awe-inspiring God! For who could ever stand before your face when your fierce anger burns and live to tell about it.

Exodus 33:15 (VOICE) If Your presence doesn’t travel with me, then don’t lead us away from here.

Be Strengthened in 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”

In My Presence is Peace

Isaiah 41:10 (VOICE) So don’t be afraid. I am here, with you; don’t be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, help you. I am here with My right hand to make right and to hold you up.

Beloved, no matter how overwhelming the chaos of the world may feel, know that I AM with you. And I AM YHVH Shalom (the Lord your peace) – the Prince of Peace, so find your rest in Me. For I bring a peace no circumstance can steal, nor any storm shake. 

Beloved, in My presence is peace, so hover close to Me. Resist the urge to overthink your circumstance. Instead simply quiet your heart in the middle of wherever you are and whatever you’re doing, and intentionally yield to Me. I AM sovereign and I AM good. Rest in Me.

Embrace Eternity

Luke 1:33 (NKJV) “And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

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”

Chay Elohim (the Living God)

Isaiah 60:1 (NLV) Rise up and shine, for your light has come. The shining-greatness of the Lord has risen upon you.

Beloved, I shine brighter than a thousand suns. My light is more glorious than anything on heaven or earth. Look to Me. Keep your eyes fixed on My gaze and refuse to look away. May your face reflect My radiance.

I AM Chay Elohim – the Living God. I AM not an idol made by human hands – lifeless and powerless. Rather I AM the source of life. My Holy Spirit gives life to the dry bones and makes the dead places to flourish. Look to Me, and refuse to shift your gaze, and see what I can do in you.

Rejoice in My Splendor

Psalm 108:1 (VOICE) My heart is committed, O God: I will sing; I will sing praises with great affection and pledge my whole soul to the singing.

Beloved, stand in awe of My splendor as night turns to dawn. Whether literal or in your circumstances, the dramatic shift from dark to light is worth delighting in. Give praise to the One who awakens the day. Give praise to the One, who shifts your dark circumstances to radiant joy.

I AM able. My name is Elohim Yakol, God most able. No night is so dark My light cannot pierce it. So wait expectantly for morning, and praise the One who brings forth the dawn. Rejoice in My splendor, beloved, for I AM worthy. Continue reading “Rejoice in My Splendor”

Be Emboldened

Proverbs 28:1 (TPT) Guilty criminals experience paranoia even though no one threatens them. But the innocent lovers of God, because of righteousness, will have the boldness of a young, ferocious lion!

Beloved, walk in righteousness as a child of the day. For you have been bathed in the Son’s light and reflect Melek Kabowd – the King of Glory, YHVH Ori – the Lord your Light. You are no longer a creature of darkness, so refuse to hide and cower, but rather be emboldened by the One who has redeemed you. 

You have nothing to feel guilty or ashamed of when you walk in the light. And even if you should stumble, beloved, simply repent and realign with Me that your witness may be powerful and your light may not be dimmed. 

YHVH Tsur (the Lord your Strength)

Psalm 18:17 (TPT) When I was at my weakest, my enemies attacked— but the Lord held on to me.

Beloved, I AM YHVH Tsur – the Lord your Strength, and I will not leave you weak and alone. I AM with you – ever by your side to comfort and protect. No enemy is too strong for Me for I AM strength itself.

So, beloved, grab hold of Me and nothing will be able to rend you from My grip. Take joy in Me, for that joy will be your strength. I will pour My blessing over you just as you pour your love upon Me. So trust My strength, beloved; it will not fail.
