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”

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. 

High and Lifted Up

Isaiah 54:5 (VOICE) Because the One who made you will be your husband; the One called Commander of heavenly armies Will set you right again, the Holy One of Israel. It’s not for nothing that He is called “God of all the earth.”

Beloved, I AM the One who loves you best. I AM the Lord your God, the Holy One, the Lord your Maker – YHVH Asah. I AM sovereign, and I AM mighty. I command the heavenly armies. I AM YHVH Sabaoth, the Lord of hosts. 

What do you think you have to fear? I AM the enthroned One – high and lifted up, who is above Me? Who is mighty enough to stand against Me? And you have chosen to stand at My side and under My protection. So again I say, what have you to fear? Rest in Me.

Put Your Trust in Me

Isaiah 43:1 (AMP) But now, this is what the Lord, your Creator says, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you [from captivity]; I have called you by name; you are Mine!

Beloved, what have you to fear? For you are Mine. I made you. I know your innermost parts. Nothing about you is secret from Me. I AM fully able to protect and support My children. So rest in and rely on Me. 

The enemy’s plans are not a mystery to Me. Nor do his forces exceed Mine. I AM all-powerful and have all the hosts of heaven at My command. Is anything too hard for Me? Resist the urge to lean on your own strength, and instead put your trust in Me.

The Shelter of His Wings {Moments with God}

{my heart whispers} Only You are worthy. Only You are sovereign. I choose to cling to Your side. Hiding in Your presence not out of fear or cowardice, but rather because I love You. I want to be close to You. And yes, I want to be safe. And yes, I want to be comforted and feel loved and enjoy the wonders of friendship with You – but in the end, I want nothing more from You than to simply be with You – because You are You. And You are more than enough. You are all my heart needs. Help me to not lose sight of that fact. Help me to remember that You welcome me under Your wing as long as I choose to stay. May I never foolishly choose to step away, for You are My God and I am most happy to say I am one of Your people.

{feeling} His hand on my head, then sliding along my cheek – a tender touch, one filled with love. He smiles softly and with so much affection. I can feel myself encompassed by love so saturating it’s almost drugging. I am overwhelmed with peace and contentment, and I understand – fully understand – that I am His.

Psalm 32:7 (TPT) Lord, you are my secret hiding place, protecting me from these troubles, surrounding me with songs of gladness! Your joyous shouts of rescue release my breakthrough. Pause in his presence

YHVH Zimrath (the Lord your Song)

Psalm 42:8 (VOICE) Yet in the light of day, the Eternal shows me His love. When night settles in and all is dark, He keeps me company— His soothing song, a prayerful melody to the True God of my life.

Beloved, quiet your soul and hear My song. Its strains whispering peace to those who would listen. Tune in to that golden flow. Let it wash over you. Let it be what mandates the cadence of your life. 

Resist the urge to allow the chaos of the world to bring discord, but instead press in deeper, like a child burrowing into their parent’s shoulder – safe, secure, and loved in their arms. I AM your safety and I AM your song – YHVH Zimrath, the Lord your song. 

Psalm 42:1, 5, 7-8 (VOICE) My soul is dry and thirsts for You, True God, as a deer thirsts for water. Why am I so overwrought? Why am I so disturbed? Why can’t I just hope in God? Despite all my emotions, I will believe and praise the One who saves me and is my life. In the roar of Your waterfalls, ancient depths surge, calling out to the deep. All Your waves break over me; am I drowning? Yet in the light of day, the Eternal shows me His love. When night settles in and all is dark, He keeps me company— His soothing song, a prayerful melody to the True God of my life.

My Right Hand

Psalm 44:3 (VOICE) They did not win the land with their swords. It wasn’t their strength that won them victory. It was Your strength —Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your presence that gave them success, for You loved them.

Beloved, nothing is too hard for Me. Victory is not won by your own strength, but by your ability to rest in Me and Mine. I AM the Lord victorious. I AM El Gibbor, the mighty God. Hide in the shadow of My wing. 

Run to Me, your strong tower. I AM your refuge of strength – a very present help in times of trouble, and a place of refreshing in the times of plenty. Cling to Me and trust My right hand to protect and provide. 

Deep Assurance

Proverbs 18:10 (GW) The name of the Lord is a strong tower. A righteous person runs to it and is safe.

Beloved, those who know Me, know My name. My name reflects My character. A part of intimacy is having a deep assurance about another’s character that is unshakable regardless of circumstance. Having that foundation with Me brings an enormous amount of peace.

If you know Me, you know I AM always with you. If you know Me, you know I take care of My children. If you know Me, you know I’ll use each hardship you encounter as a force for good. Knowing Me is about trusting and releasing control into My hands. It’s about allowing Me to be your strong tower and your firm foundation. So, beloved, run to Me and be safe.

Run, Rest, Rely

Proverbs 18:10 (TPT) The character of God is a tower of strength, for the lovers of God delight to run into his heart and be exalted on high.

Beloved, I AM sovereign, and I AM strong. I AM YHVH Tsur – the Lord your strength, and YHVH Misgab – the Lord your Strong Tower. I AM unchanging – the alpha and omega, the same yesterday, today, and forever. Rest in Me.

My character is infallible. It creates a safe and stable foundation for you – a place you can rely on. Rest in Me. My name reflects My character, for I AM that I AM. Remember, beloved, run to Me, rest in Me, and rely on Me, for I AM wholly faithful and ever true.  Continue reading “Run, Rest, Rely”

Those Who Know Me Rest Secure

Psalm 4:8 (VOICE) Tonight I will sleep securely on a bed of peace because I trust You, You alone, O Eternal One, will keep me safe.

Beloved, find sweet rest in Me. Know that you are safe in My hands, for I watch over My children and I never sleep or slumber. You are secure in My care. Know that I AM. 

Let My love embrace you and My strength secure you. You are safe with Me. Let Me whisper to your heart as you sleep and feel my comforting touch on your brow. Beloved, I cherish My children, and those who know Me rest secure.
