Kadosh Elohim (Holy God)

Psalm 99:9 (ASV) Exalt ye Jehovah our God, And worship at his holy hill; For Jehovah our God is holy.

Beloved, I AM Kadosh Elohim – the holy God. And just as I AM holy, I call you to walk in holiness. Choose to be set apart – consecrated to Me. Choose to live differently, not as the world at large lives, but rather with the intention of yielding to a higher plan.

Being holy comes at a cost. It means being different, and often misunderstood. In moments when being set apart causes discomfort and strain, remember that in being holy you are choosing to align with Me and with My Kingdom. So be blessed as you walk in holiness.

Steadfast and Faithful {Moments with God}

{With a heart full of gratitude} God, I don’t know what I would do without You, and am grateful I will never have to learn. You are steadfast and faithful, my rock and my foundation. You’re the touchstone I can always rely on, so I know that no matter what comes, I can turn and cling to You. I can seek You for wisdom, and ask Your Spirit for truth. I know You’ll always lead me, and so I yield to You. I need never fear uncertain times, for You’re never caught unaware. So I can trust in You faithfully, and leave myself in Your care. You comfort and console me when times of trial come, and You bolster and You strengthen me, so I can forever keep moving on. I’m so grateful that You love me, and that You’ve chosen me. I’m blessed to be Your beloved, and in that I find my identity.

Psalm 18:2 (TPT) You’re as real to me as bedrock beneath my feet, like a castle on a cliff, my forever firm fortress, my mountain of hiding, my pathway of escape, my tower of rescue where none can reach me. My secret strength and shield around me, you are salvation’s ray of brightness shining on the hillside, always the champion of my cause.

The Apple of My Eye

Psalm 17:8 (VOICE) Keep close watch over me as the apple of Your eye; shelter me in the shadow of Your wings.

Beloved, just as you are pained if someone injures the pupil of your eye, so do I feel every hurt and wound you experience. For you are the apple of My eye – My beloved one, My focus, and I care for you more than you could begin to comprehend.

Though trials will surely come – for they always do – know that the shelter of My wings is always there for you to turn to. I AM steadfast and I AM faithful, and My love continues from generation to generation without end. So rest, knowing I AM watching over you and I AM with you, for you are Mine.

Fully Known and Fully Loved

Psalm 17:7 (VOICE) Put Your marvelous love on display for all to see. Liberator of those who long for shelter beside You, set them safely away from their enemies, ever welcomed by grace.

Beloved, be wrapped in My love and grace, for you are safely in my grip and held dear to My heart. Those who dwell in safety beside Me, have chosen to rest in My presence. All are welcome. My grace is sufficient and My love abounds.

Draw near, beloved. There is none beside Me. My love for you far exceeds your grandest imaginations, so rest in Me. Be set free by the beauty of being fully known and fully loved. Continue reading “Fully Known and Fully Loved”

Keenly Attuned

Psalm 17:6 (VOICE) I am crying aloud to You, O True God, for I long to know Your answer. Hear me, O God. Hear my plea. Hear my prayer for help.

Beloved, I AM keenly attuned to your voice. I don’t miss one utterance that falls from your lips. I know you so well that I don’t miss even your unspoken heart cries. I hear them all. I AM always ready and I AM always listening.

In the same way a good parent would not sit back and watch as their child struggled and drowned, know that I too am keenly attentive to your every need, so you don’t have to beg for My help or My attention – I give it freely. I listen to each whisper, and anticipate every need. So trust that I AM with you and that I will never leave.

Psalm 17:5-8 (VOICE) I will press on —moving steadfastly forward along Your path. I will not look back. I will not stumble. I am crying aloud to You, O True God, for I long to know Your answer. Hear me, O God. Hear my plea. Hear my prayer for help. Put Your marvelous love on display for all to see. Liberator of those who long for shelter beside You, set them safely away from their enemies, ever welcomed by grace. Keep close watch over me as the apple of Your eye; shelter me in the shadow of Your wings.

Rich Soil of Intimacy

Psalm 17:5 (VOICE) I will press on —moving steadfastly forward along Your path. I will not look back. I will not stumble.

Beloved, be set in your purpose and be steadfast. Refuse to be blown about, or shaken by the winds and waves around you. Remain true to your heart – true to your purpose. Allow your dove eyes to lead you.

A dove’s eyes are gentle and singular in focus. So allow yours to remain fixed on Me, just as Mine stay fixed on you. For you are the object of My affection – My beloved, My precious one. Dwell in this place of intimacy with Me, and let us linger here that life may pour forth from its rich soil. Continue reading “Rich Soil of Intimacy”

You are My Defender {Moments with God}

{I declare in my heart} When my heart is wounded, and when I’m in despair, I will fix my eyes upon You and hold fast to Your hand of grace. And when I stand accused, and when my integrity is questioned, I will trust my honor and reputation in Your very capable hands. For I know that I can trust You, and that I’m safe within Your arms. I know there’s been times You’ve been the one accused, and so You know just how I feel. So I will choose to rest in Your embrace, no matter what comes my way. For You are my defender, and so in You will I wait.

Psalm 59:1 (NET) Deliver me from my enemies, my God! Protect me from those who attack me!

Psalm 18:1 (GNT) How I love you, Lord! You are my defender.

Simply Walk

Philippians 3:15-16 (TPT) So let all who are fully mature have this same passion, and if anyone is not yet gripped by these desires, God will reveal it to them. And let us all advance together to reach this victory-prize, following one path with one passion.

Beloved, the steadfastness of your purpose marks your maturity. For a child’s attention is constantly fluttering from one experiential feast to the next, but the one who has grown and learned life’s lessons knows it is often the things most easily overlooked that benefit from our attention.

Yield your plans to Me and continue on with purpose. Remember your walk with Me is more like a marathon than a sprint. Though your zeal may entice you to do and see and experience everything at once, therein lies the way to burnout. Rather be steady and yield the pace to Me. Allowing Me to bring each revelation and experience in exactly the right moment. So be steadfast, beloved, and simply walk with Me in love. Continue reading “Simply Walk”

Intentional Focus

Philippians 3:14 (TPT) I run straight for the divine invitation of reaching the heavenly goal and gaining the victory-prize through the anointing of Jesus.

Beloved, be singularly focused on your eternal prize. For as you focus on that destination, your journey will align to the best path. Refuse to be distracted by obstacles that seem to hinder your way. For what you focus on, you make room for. So be intentional to focus on the goal ahead rather than that which will lead you astray.

As the eyes of your heart stay fixed, your footsteps will not wander. So may your journey be steady and steadfast, and may your gaze be ever true. Continue reading “Intentional Focus”

Steadfastly Onward

Philippians 3:13 (TPT) I don’t depend on my own strength to accomplish this; however I do have one compelling focus: I forget all of the past as I fasten my heart to the future instead.

Beloved, remember that you do not run alone. I AM YHVH Shammah – the Lord is present, and I AM with you through it all. Resist the urge to rely on your own strength, and instead lean on Me. For I AM fully able to support you through every test and trial.

Keep your eyes fixed on Me, and your focus on what’s ahead. Refuse to be distracted by disappointments or the things of old. Instead move steadfastly onward as you walk hand-in-hand with Me. Trust Me to guide and uphold you as you remain focused on the path ahead. Continue reading “Steadfastly Onward”
