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.

I AM the Living God

Luke 24:5 (TPT) Terrified, the women fell to the ground on their faces. The men in white said to them, “Why would you look for the living One in a tomb? He is not here, for he has risen!

Beloved, too often people are tempted to look for Me in the wrong places. They forget the full majesty of My glory and the awesome authority of My sovereignty. I AM bigger than most can begin to understand.  Resist the urge to fall into that trap. See Me as I AM: the King of Glory, Lord of all, the Living God. 

I AM high and lifted up – holy and worthy of all honor and praise. See Me, beloved, and understand that with all that I AM, you are the apple of My eye. Despite the greatness of My majesty and the weight of My authority, I know your every need, count your every hair, and catch your every tear. You are My beloved, and I AM the Living God.

Trust in My Sovereignty

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, pause and try to fully comprehend My power. Whatever you can think of, I AM able. Simply because I don’t move, doesn’t mean I can’t. I see what you do not see, and I understand what you cannot understand. Know that I AM sovereign, and trust in My sovereignty. 

I AM Lord of all. Simply because I don’t remove trials, doesn’t mean I’m unfeeling or unable. Rather, there are times where instead of removing the trial, I take your hand and walk you through. Like gold refined in the fire, so such times refine one’s character and beautify those willing to yield to the process. 

So know whether I protect you from trials or in the midst of them, I AM with you. And I AM more than able to take care of those I love, and beloved, that is you. 

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.

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”

My Dominion is Everlasting

Psalm 145:13 (VOICE) Your kingdom will never end; Your rule will endure forever. [You are faithful to Your promise, and Your acts are marked with grace.]

Beloved, My dominion is everlasting. My sovereignty knows no end. There is no promise I will be unable to fulfill or whose outcome is beyond My reach. Rest in My hands. Trust your heart and hopes and dreams to Me.

Will I ignore the pleas of My children? Am I a bad father who neglects those he is called to cover and protect? Surely not! I AM slow to anger and rich in mercy, and I keep My promises from generation to generation. Trust yourself in My hands.

Adon Olam (Master of the World/Sovereign of the Universe)

Matthew 6:13 (KJV) …For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Beloved, see Me for who I AM: Lord of all, Adon Olam – the Master of the World, Sovereign of the Universe – and I AM the ultimate authority. See Me as I AM, for in doing so your faith will rise. And allow that faith to increase your understanding that truly nothing is too difficult for Me.

So declare the truth of who I AM and bring praise to My holy name. Give honor to Me, beloved, and watch how I move. See My power on display. Have eyes to see the miracles both great and small.

Rise Up at My Roar

Numbers 23:24 (VOICE) Look at this people rise up like a lion, like a lion who gets up and does not lie down until it devours its prey, even drinking the blood of the slain.

Beloved, rise up at My roar. Refuse to back down. You’ve no need to be intimidated, for the Lord of Hosts is your God and forever will I reign. So stand tall and proud, and take your place beside your King. 

Refuse to shrink back, but rather move boldly – empowered by My Spirit, and walk in victory. For with Me, beloved, victory is assured. I AM the victorious One, and you belong to Me.

El Gibhor (Mighty God)

Jeremiah 32:18 (NKJV) ‘[You] show lovingkindness to thousands, and repay the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them–the Great, the Mighty God, whose name [is] the LORD of hosts.

I AM El Gibhor, the Mighty God. I AM righteous and powerful, merciful and perfect in my judgment. Nothing is too great for Me. I AM the Lord of hosts with legions of angels at My command, is anything beyond My reach?

Know Who it is you serve. Understand the God you have chosen. I AM the great I AM – beyond your full comprehension – so resist the temptation to try to fit Me into your understanding rather than stretching your understanding to know Me.

I cannot be manipulated or controlled, but I love you and I AM good. Yield yourself to Me, your trust is well-placed here. Partner with Me and together we will move mountains.

I AM YHVH Rapha (Healer)

Matthew 14:14 (AMP) When He went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and felt [profound] compassion for them and healed their sick.

Beloved, I AM a God of deep compassion. My eyes are not blind nor My heart closed, I AM moved by the trials of My people. I love My children. I AM YHVH Rapha, the Lord your healer. I love to heal My children! Ask Me to do so and ask in faith knowing I AM able and willing.

But beloved, if your healing is delayed, refuse to take on doubt or self-condemnation, know it is not a result of Me not caring or not loving you. Refuse to believe the lies the enemy would tempt you with. Refuse to be offended by My decisions trusting I AM at work in the lives of my children who I deeply love. Blessed are those who are not offended by Me.

And even if your healing has been long-awaited and hope has begun to fade, refuse to stop asking and standing in faith for it to come. I AM a miracle-working God, and I love to move on behalf of My children. Continue reading “I AM YHVH Rapha (Healer)”
