John 10:27 (AMP) The sheep that are My own hear My voice and listen to Me; I know them, and they follow Me.
Beloved, refuse to believe the lies that the enemy throws your way. You are Mine, and those who are Mine know My voice and they will not follow another’s. So pause as you listen, and recognize who is speaking that you might rightly determine which words are of value and to which you should pay no heed.
For the enemy of your soul will always toss “thought bombs” at you like grenades. Their intention is to maim and destroy. Refuse to give them power by simply rejecting them as you identify their origin. Toss them out, beloved. Take every thought captive and make it submit to My truth.
Beloved, you know Me. You know My heart towards you is good. Refuse to believe anything less. Refuse to settle for anything less. Know that you are precious, prized, the apple of My eye – My heart’s desire. Know the truth of your identity as you rest in the cocoon of My love. Continue reading “Refuse to Believe the Lies”
John 8:32 (CSB) “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Beloved, resist the urge to stay in what is familiar simply because it is known. Instead open yourself to Me and My Word that you might know truth and walk in freedom. Because only the truth has the power to set you free, and truth is found in Me.
So come to Me and abide, that you might know truth. My ways are not your ways, and they may stretch your understanding, but it is better to be stretched by truth and live in the light, than to intentionally stay in darkness. So choose the light and freedom of truth.
Psalm 105:1 (AMP) O give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the people.
Beloved, you know My name, and you’re well familiar with My nature. Will you tell the world who I AM? Give thanks to Me, and make My deeds known among the nations. Share unashamedly about how I have moved in your life.
Testify, beloved. Share the truth of My character, for so many have a skewed and false view of who I AM. It isn’t your job to change their minds, but it is your job not to hold back from speaking truth – the truth of who I AM, how I move, and the power of My love.
Psalm 18:17 (TPT) Even though I was helpless in the hands of my hateful, strong enemy, you were good to deliver me.
Beloved, I will not leave you in a pit of despair. I will always extend My hand and offer a means of escape. So grab hold and refuse to let go. I AM good and faithful and true. I AM Palet, your deliverer – your rock and your fortress. You are not helpless when you are resting in Me.
So choose to give thanks for My mighty hand. And resist the urge to believe the lies that you are worthless and alone. Instead listen to My truth, for I AM a good Father, and I protect those who are My own. And, beloved, you are Mine. Continue reading “Palet (Deliverer)”
Malachi 2:6 (VOICE) He spoke the law of truth, and falsehood was not found on his lips. In peace and justice he walked with Me, and he turned many from iniquity by his words and example;
Beloved, resist the urge to compromise your integrity. There is no such thing as a small lie. Even what appears as minor and innocuous opens doors in the spiritual realm and shifts things in the natural.
Be known as a person of character. Be someone who resists falsehood, and who loves justice and peace. Lead by example, beloved. Be steadfast, and live in honesty and harmony. Continue reading “Live Honestly and in Harmony”
Romans 12:2 (TPT) …be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.
Beloved, surrender your thoughts to Mine. Trust My perspective and trust Me to bring truth, for I AM truth. Allow My Holy Spirit to align your thoughts to Mine – make My views and beliefs your own, for Mine are rooted in truth. For I see and I understand.
Resist the urge to allow your personal experiences to cloud your understanding of truth. Often the words and actions of those around you reflect a perspective based in falsehood. Simply because it is reflected does not make it true.
So look to Me to bring truth and clarity, and then believe what I tell you. When I say you are beautiful and loved and precious, those things are fact regardless of whether others have reflected those truths to you accurately. So fix your gaze on Me, and allow Me to transform your mind by helping you be more like Me. Continue reading “More Like Me”
Proverbs 16:6 (TPT) You can avoid evil through surrendered worship and the fear of God, for the power of his faithful love removes sin’s guilt and grip over you.
Beloved, not only is your praise a mighty weapon, but it is a fearsome shield as well. It keeps your attentions focused on that which is good and true, and protects you from the enemy’s diversions. A besotted bride is not tempted by another, for her gaze is too well-fixed on the one she holds so dear.
And, as this bride rests in the adoration of her beloved, she is not thinking of all the ways she’s missed the mark or all her personal shortcomings, for her reality is painted by his perception – that of his pure and spotless bride. In the same way, beloved, find your truth in My gaze.
Ephesians 5:13 (TPT) Whatever the revelation-light exposes, it will also correct, and everything that reveals truth is light to the soul.
Beloved, My correcting light is a blessing worth embracing. I chasten those I love, so to reject My chastening is to reject My life-altering love. Embrace Me. Embrace My love. Welcome My correction without fear or shame. You have no need to defend yourself because you are not under attack. I understand your every heart motivation long before you do, and My grace is sufficient for you.
The wise embrace truth and see it as My wisdom, while the foolish reject it and seek to believe falsehoods and perversions. Refuse to allow pride to keep you from the benefit of wisdom, or for fear to create barriers from receiving My love. No one is beyond redemption. No one is incapable of change when empowered by My Spirit. Embrace My loving correction and allow the light of Truth to have its way. Yield to the shaping of the Potter’s hands, and become the glorious vessel you’ve been created to be.
Psalm 142:4 (GW) Look to my right and see that no one notices me. Escape is impossible for me. No one cares about me.
Beloved, though there may be times you feel overlooked, unseen, unimportant, and worthless, those feelings are not communicating truth to you. Refuse to take the bait. The enemy seeks to convince you of these things, but he is a liar and the father of lies.
Remember that David, a man after My own heart, a man quoted and beloved, a man still inspiring multitudes hundreds of years later felt the same way. You never know the full impact your life and actions have.
So keep your eyes and heart fixed on Me. Focus on obedience, and knowing and loving My Word. Abide with Me, and allow a life cultivated in that fertile soil to bear fruit and do so abundantly. Continue reading “Refuse to Take the Bait”
2 Chronicles 1:10 (CSB) Now grant me wisdom and knowledge so that I may lead these people, for who can judge this great people of yours?
Beloved, I AM the revealer of mysteries. Look to Me to show the truth of a matter – to bring revelation and discernment. If you will call to Me, I will tell you things you do not know, and it is My joy to do so.
Operate in the Spirit of Knowledge, beloved. Allow your senses to be open to My download even in moments you least expect it or don’t realize it’s needed. I cut through the fog of confusion and bring stark clarity. Receive, beloved, receive.
