Matthew 6:26 (VOICE) Look at the birds in the sky. They do not store food for winter. They don’t plant gardens. They do not sow or reap—and yet, they are always fed because your heavenly Father feeds them. And you are even more precious to Him than a beautiful bird. If He looks after them, of course He will look after you.
Beloved, My tender care is apparent for all to see, and you are precious to Me. I never miss a thing – I AM mindful of details – nothing is beneath My notice. Will you receive from Me? Extend your hand, beloved, and accept what I have for you – even if it isn’t what you expected or hoped for. Trust in Me and in My goodness.
My thoughts toward you are good thoughts, so while you may not understand My actions, you can rest in the knowledge I AM good. I AM faithful and unerringly careful with your heart. Trust it in My capable hands.
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.
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.
Psalm 4:5 (VOICE) From this day forward, offer to God the right sacrifice from a heart made right by God. Entrust yourself to the Eternal.
Beloved, entrust your heart to Me. Resist the urge to hold back or try to protect yourself. You are safe with Me. I do not promise a life without trial, but I promise to give you the strength to endure.
Hold on to Me, and honor Me with the offering I most desire: a surrendered heart. Yield your plans to Mine. Yield your will to Mine. Yield to Me, beloved. Yield. Entrust your heart to Me.
Exodus 15:3 (AMP) The Lord is a warrior; The Lord is His name.
Beloved, I will not retreat from a fight. I battle for those I love because I deem you worthy. You are precious and prized – the apple of My eye, and when someone hurts you, it hurts Me. So leave justice in My hands, for only My judgment is righteous.
You can trust in Me. You can trust your heart in My care. Give yourself to me fully – without holding back, and watch how I lavish My love upon you. I AM Lord of all. I AM.
Isaiah 43:2 (VOICE) When you face stormy seas I will be there with you with endurance and calm; you will not be engulfed in raging rivers. If it seems like you’re walking through fire with flames licking at your limbs, keep going; you won’t be burned.
Beloved, refuse to walk in fear. No matter what you face, I face it with you. Your journey will always include hardships – for everyone’s does, but as you walk in confidence with Me at your side, you will prevail.
Resist the urge to be overwhelmed by troubles as they come. Instead look to Me for the path through the flames. I AM with you to guide you. So refuse to walk in fear because you walk with 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.
Matthew 3:17 (VOICE) Voice from Heaven: This is My Son, whom I love; this is the Apple of My eye; with Him I am well pleased.
Beloved, there is nothing I wouldn’t do to bless you. You are the apple of My eye – more precious to Me than words can express, such is the depth of My love for you. But I will not thoughtlessly give you that which will harm you.
So ask Me for what you will without reservation, but then trust Me to do what is best. Resist the urge to assign negative motives or heart intentions to My decisions, and instead remember that I see all and I know all, therefore My judgment is perfect. And above all, remember I move from love.
Psalm 44:2 (VOICE) With a powerful hand, You drove the nations from this land, but then You planted our parents here. You fought for us against people of this land; You set our parents free to enjoy its goodness.
Beloved, in my mercy I created a place for you. I carved out somewhere for you to belong. In my strength – the power of My right hand, I make way for you and bring you blessing. Why then are you tempted to move in your own strength? Why then do you strive to make your own way?
You are Mine, beloved, and I take care of My children. Rest in Me. Trust in My strength and provision. Allow Me to lead you that you might know – in good times and in bad – I AM your God.
2 Timothy 4:2 (TLB) to preach the Word of God urgently at all times, whenever you get the chance, in season and out, when it is convenient and when it is not. Correct and rebuke your people when they need it, encourage them to do right, and all the time be feeding them patiently with God’s Word.
Beloved, resist the urge to be silent simply because it stretches you to speak. Await My nudges and act in obedience when they come. True obedience isn’t reflected when you “feel like” obeying, but rather when you do so without consideration of your feelings in deference to Me.
Trust that I know what you’re capable of. Trust that I know the timing and the words and actions for you to execute, and that I will lead you accordingly. I AM sovereign. Yield to Me.
