The Lamb has Overcome

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.

Exult in Me Throughout the Nations

Romans 5:2 (NASB) …and we exult in hope of the glory of God.

Beloved, find exuberant joy in hope – the hope of Me and of My glory. Exult in Me throughout the nations. May your praise abound in all the earth. For I AM worthy of all honor and praise, so let your hope rest in Me. 

Glory in the peace that hope in Me brings. Allow that confident assurance to shine forth in your countenance that those who see you might see and ask about about the foundation of your hope. This way your hope in Me isn’t simply your own bedrock, but also a beacon to all. Continue reading “Exult in Me Throughout the Nations”

Radiant Joy

Romans 12:12 (AMPC) Rejoice and exult in hope; be steadfast and patient in suffering and tribulation; be constant in prayer.

Beloved, rejoice! Find your joy in Me and in the hope of My salvation. Then let that joy overflow in radiant praise – so bright and glorious that the world can’t help but see you shine. Let it infuse your prayers. 

Allow that radiant joy to undergird everything in your life. And though in the natural realm it may seem impossible to truly rejoice in the midst of trials and suffering, when your joy is firmly rooted in your hope in Me, your foundation is secure. So again I say, rejoice!

Beautiful and Radiant

Song of Songs 4:1 (TPT) Listen, my dearest darling, you are so beautiful—you are beauty itself to me! Your eyes glisten with love, like gentle doves behind your veil. What devotion I see each time I gaze upon you. You are like a sacrifice ready to be offered.

Beloved, see yourself as I see you – beautiful and radiant in all your splendor. Nothing in creation comes close to the glory of you. Resist the urge to view yourself superficially, or to allow the thoughts and words of man to distort your view. Just as a newly minted dollar has the same value as one that is wrinkled and torn, see your value in truth and not by shallow measures. 

I see you as glorious and breathtaking, and anyone seeing with spiritual eyes will see the same. Be mindful to view others through the same rose-colored spiritual eyes that I ask you to view yourself. Each of you has been created with intention, in My image, and is worthy of love and blessing. Reflect it out just as I desire it for you – and as you want to receive. 

Cheerful Praise

Psalm 89:15 (VOICE) How happy are those who have learned how to praise You; those who journey through life by the light of Your face.

Beloved, look to Me to light your path, and rejoice in the glory of My rays. Let your joy overflow, and embrace the journey – may it be filled with praise for the Giver of Life. For I AM worthy, so hold nothing back. 

So may cheerful praise be your constant companion, and may your mind ever dwell on the beauty of My love. Let your heart overflow with streams of gratitude, and may your countenance ever reflect My glory. 

Receive the Pure Revelation

Colossians 1:9-12 (MSG) …we haven’t stopped praying for you, asking God to give you wise minds and spirits attuned to his will, and so acquire a thorough understanding of the ways in which God works…

Beloved, attune yourself to Me, and hear the voice of heaven. Press in for My sweet voice, and settle for no substitute. Receive My divine wisdom, and then open your mouth and release it in the earth.

Be a funnel – a yielded vessel – for Me to pour through as I deposit My revelation and watch as it pours through. Listen for the sound. Listen for My voice. Receive the pure revelation from My throne. Then reflect Me well – do so accurately, that others might know Me too.  Continue reading “Receive the Pure Revelation”

A Beautiful Display

Matthew 5:14 (NLT) You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.

Beloved, light and life have been deposited in you. I exhort you to be intentional about sharing it. I do not bestow gifts upon you simply for your own benefit and pleasure, but rather for your use to further My Kingdom. 

So shine and shine brightly. Boldly demonstrate the life that comes from one who has surrendered to Me. Death to self is life in Me – and life more abundant. So let it burst forth in glorious clarity, a beautiful display of My life-changing love at work in the hearts of men. 

Precious Inheritance

Psalm 2:8 (TPT) Ask me to give you the nations and I will do it, and they shall become your legacy. Your domain will stretch to the ends of the earth.

Beloved, I love My creation and I long for intimacy with every person I have created. Each one unique and beautiful – a rainbow of beauty with hearts that I relentlessly seek. The nations are My precious inheritance, bring them home to Me. 

Shine brightly in all your glorious uniqueness, revealing Me simply by being you. Reflect Me and be that harvest light that calls My children home. Hold nothing back, beloved. Be all you’ve been created to be and in doing so glorify Me.

Plentiful Harvest

Matthew 9:37 (AMP) Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is [indeed] plentiful, but the workers are few.

Beloved, the harvest is plentiful. Everywhere around you are people who are in desperate need of Me. Resist the urge to use your natural mind to find them. Instead simply be light. Shine in the midst of the darkness. Allow all to see how My hand on your life has radically changed who you are. 

Be moved by My Spirit. Allow Me to lead to you when to speak and what to say. Refuse to allow logic to trump My voice. Yield to Me. I know the hearts I have prepared for a word in season. So be My voice to those who can’t hear Me – of whom there are many. 

Matthew 9:36-38 (TPT) When he saw the vast crowds of people, Jesus’ heart was deeply moved with compassion, because they seemed weary and helpless, like wandering sheep without a shepherd. He turned to his disciples and said, “The harvest is huge and ripe! But there are not enough harvesters to bring it all in. As you go, plead with the Owner of the Harvest to thrust out  many more reapers to harvest his grain!”

Hold On – I AM is Coming

Revelation 1:8 (AMP)  “I am the Alpha and the Omega [the Beginning and the End],” says the Lord God, “Who is [existing forever] and Who was [continually existing in the past] and Who is to come, the Almighty [the Omnipotent, the Ruler of all].”

Beloved, be expectant. I AM coming. Yes, you see darkness all around you, but I have placed in you My light for all to see. So shine and shine brightly. Be a beacon reminding all of the joyous promise of My coming. 

Do not despair for the world around you, rather focus on bringing truth and shining brightly into every corner that all may see and know: hold on – I AM is coming.
