Receive That You Might Give

Deuteronomy 32:2 (VOICE) Let my teaching fall on you like raindrops; let what I say collect like the dew, Like rain sprinkling the grass, like showers on the green plants.

Beloved, receive. Receive that you might share liberally. For those who have been watered, can themselves water others. So receive that you might give as it has been given to you. In doing so, you glorify Me.

So be saturated. Take the time to receive that you might truly be soaked. Just as a plant is nourished by sun and rain so that it grows large and healthy, so you are growing as you’re saturated in My presence. So receive that you might give, and flourish.

Dwelling Place

1 Peter 2:5 (TPT) Come and be his “living stones” who are continually being assembled into a sanctuary for God. For now you serve as holy priests, offering up spiritual sacrifices that he readily accepts through Jesus Christ.

Beloved, present yourself as a living offering. Be part of My holy temple – a dwelling place for My Spirit. Welcome Me, even as I welcome you into My presence – that we might be one. United in thought and purpose. 

And from this place of unity, work in unison with Me and act on My behalf. Be prompted by My Spirit – a holy priest, ordained by Me. To effectively and rightly represent Me, you must first know Me and be known by Me. So dwell in My presence, and be indwelt by Me.

Abide in My Love

John 15:9 (TPT) I love each of you with the same love that the Father loves me. You must continually let my love nourish your hearts.

Beloved, abide in My love, and allow it to nourish and sustain you. It is endless, for I AM El Olam – the everlasting God, and I AM Olam Zerowa – the everlasting arms. Reach for Me, for I AM willing to hold you close for eternity.

Be filled by My love. Draw from My endless supply that you might have a reserve from which to pour out. For the world is filled with those in desperate need of love – true, unconditional, life-giving love. So be a willing vessel, and saturate yourself in Me. Be intentional to stay full to overflowing that you might be ready to share whenever the opportunity arises. Reflect My heart with joy.

Find Fellowship with Me

2 Corinthians 1:4 (VOICE) He consoles us as we endure the pain and hardship of life so that we may draw from His comfort and share it with others in their own struggles. 

Beloved, in the midst of pain, I AM still with you. No hardship will scare Me away. I will use each one to grow you and strengthen your character, if you will yield to Me. Draw comfort from Me. You are not alone.

And remember as you endure the sufferings, that I have endured them as well. And when you encounter betrayal, remember I have encountered it as well. And when you’re ridiculed, misjudged, and persecuted – remember, beloved, I have been too. So draw close to Me, and in the midst of trial, find fellowship with Me.

Choose the Light and Freedom of Truth

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. 

Be Strengthened in Me

Psalm 91:1 (TPT) When you sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai, you are hidden in the strength of God Most High.

Beloved, I AM ever with you – in every moment and any circumstance, I AM YHVH Shammah (the Lord is present). What can touch you as you hide under My wing? What harm can come when you are in My care? Indeed, rest in Me – the Maker of heaven and earth, for I AM God.

So rest, enthroned with Me and under My covering. Take your place of authority and influence even as you dwell with Me. Reflect Me. Hide in Me. Be strengthened in Me, for I AM El Shaddai – the all-sufficient One, find what you need in Me. I AM good and I AM able, so trust your care to Me. Hide in My strength, and draw your strength from Me.  Continue reading “Be Strengthened in Me”

Abide in My Word

John 8:31 (VOICE) If you hear My voice and abide in My word, you are truly My disciples;

Beloved, will you take the time to listen? Will you take time to abide? My Word is sustenance for your soul, so refuse to be malnourished and instead feast on that which is truly good. 

If you want to share about Me, you must first know Me. And knowing Me happens by feasting on My Word. So abide in My Word – chewing, meditating – and hear Me speak to you that you might know Me intimately, for that is where true freedom is found.

Dwell in Safety with Me

Psalm 18:19 (TPT) His love broke open the way and he brought me into a beautiful broad place. He rescued me—because his delight is in me!

Beloved, even on your darkest day, I still delight in you. My love for you is unchanging. I do not grow tired of whatever hardship or the pain you are experiencing, but rather I patiently and steadfastly walk by your side until the morning comes. 

So let My love expand a place of joy and beauty and truth for you to rest. And take My hand and let Me rescue you from the one who seeks to steal, kill, and destroy. He is no match for Me. So dwell, beloved, in safety with Me.  Continue reading “Dwell in Safety with Me”

Connect to Me

John 1:51 (NLT) Then he said, “I tell you the truth, you will all see heaven open and the angels of God going up and down on the Son of Man, the one who is the stairway between heaven and earth.”

Beloved, I AM the way. Follow Me. All of heaven and earth lie before Me, and nothing is hidden from My eye. Connect yourself to Me, and open yourself to the things of Me. There is so much more accessible than you could begin to imagine – so grab hold. 

Through Me, dead are raised. Through Me, blind eyes see. Through Me, lame can walk. Through Me, the broken are healed, those in bondage are set free, those who weep are comforted, and so much more. I open the heavens, and through Me heaven touches earth – the supernatural becoming natural. So connect to Me.

Come Away

Isaiah 60:8 (EXB) The people are returning to you [Who are these who fly…?] like clouds, like doves flying to their nests [shelters; windows].

Beloved, I AM your home, so fly home to Me. Abide in Me. Resist the urge to stay busy. Instead, make time to dwell with Me. Oh the adventures we will have, when you make time for Me.

So run to Me, beloved. In Me, you will soar. Wait upon Me, and rise up on wings like eagles as you soar in the Spirit with Me. Come away with Me, beloved. Come away.
