Proverbs 3:10 (VOICE) That way you will prosper to the fullest and have plenty of food to eat and wine to drink.
Beloved, I desire that you would prosper in every good thing. In making Me your focus, and in trusting your needs and desires to Me, you are positioned for blessing. For if your focus is on your earthly desires or on your sense of lack, it blocks the very blessing that you want and that I long to give you.
Be intentional to stay rooted in Me and in gratitude for all you’ve been given. Then trust that I will bring to you what you need when you need it and more besides. For I love to take care of My children, so yield your heart to Me.
Proverbs 3:9-12 (VOICE) Pay tribute to the Eternal in all of your affairs. Honor Him with the best of what you make. That way you will prosper to the fullest and have plenty of food to eat and wine to drink. My son, do not ignore the Eternal’s instruction or lose heart when He steps in to correct you; Because the Eternal proves His love by caring enough to discipline you, just as a father does his child, his pride and joy.
Proverbs 3:8 (VOICE) If you depend on Him, your body and mind will be free from the strain of a sinful life, will experience healing and health, and will be strengthened at their core.
Beloved, I do not instruct you to yield to Me and My ways from a desire to control you or strong arm you into doing what I want. I instruct you to yield because I see the path of greatest blessing. Sometimes that blessing comes from grace under challenge and sometimes from hardships avoided, but ultimately I see the best path.
I desire blessing for you. When you choose to surrender your will to Mine, you are demonstrating that you trust Me and believe My heart towards you is good. When you resist Me, you demonstrate fear and a lack of trust. Often those choices come from past woundings, so I extend grace even in those moments. However, the highest sense of right in any situation is to yield to My perfect will and trust Me to guide you through. So make the intentional decision to yield, and leave the rest to Me.
Proverbs 3:5-8 (VOICE) Place your trust in the Eternal; rely on Him completely; never depend upon your own ideas and inventions. Give Him the credit for everything you accomplish, and He will smooth out and straighten the road that lies ahead. And don’t think you can decide on your own what is right and what is wrong. Respect the Eternal; turn and run from evil. If you depend on Him, your body and mind will be free from the strain of a sinful life, will experience healing and health, and will be strengthened at their core.
Psalm 86:13 (TPT) You love me so much and you placed your greatness upon me. You rescued me from the deepest place of darkness, and you have delivered me from a certain death.
Beloved, there is no pit so deep I can’t snatch you from it. No trap so hidden I can’t see it. As you align yourself with Me and yield to My leading, you are empowered with My wisdom, grace, and favor.
I AM the One who lifts men up and makes them great. I AM the One who grants honor and favor. So look to Me and make the praise and criticism of men of no importance to you. Simply be a God-pleaser, and see what we can accomplish together.
Psalm 86:13-17 (TPT) You love me so much and you placed your greatness upon me. You rescued me from the deepest place of darkness, and you have delivered me from a certain death. God, look at how these arrogant ones have defied me. Like a vicious band of violent men they have tried to kill me. They wouldn’t worry for a moment that they were sinning against you! But Lord, your nurturing love is tender and gentle. You are slow to get angry yet so swift to show your faithful love. You are full of abounding grace and truth. Bring me to your grace-fountain so that your strength becomes mine. Be my hero and come rescue your servant once again! Send me a miraculous sign to show me how much you love me, so that those who hate me will see it and be ashamed. Don’t they know that you, Lord, are my comforter, the one who comes to help me?
Psalm 127:1 (VOICE) Unless the Eternal builds the house, those who labor to raise it will have worked for nothing. Unless the Eternal stands watch over the city, those who guard it have wasted their time.
Beloved, step forward at My direction, for without Me your progress is in vain. Be intentional to stay fully aligned with Me, and in cadence with My rhythm. For I declare the times and the seasons, and at My hand they come. So move with Me, My precious one, and I will lead you well.
Great things are planned, and you play a part if you can move with Me. So listen well and hover close, and stay aligned with Me. Then when equipped I’ll move you on, and I will bring you strength. From glory to glory we move, and in victory we stand tall.
Psalm 122:6 (VOICE) Ask heaven to grant peace to Jerusalem: “May those who love you prosper.
Beloved, as you pray, be intentional to pray beyond your own personal needs and desires. I AM well aware of the things that concern you – likely even more so than you are yourself. My desire is to see you choosing to look beyond yourself and your own sphere.
Choose to align your heart with Mine. Step up and pray for the things on My heart – things you will know about as you take time to know Me. Seek My heart, and listen as I share it. Then allow what touches My heart to move yours as well, and respond to it with prayer.
Psalm 143:2 (VOICE) Be kind and slow to judge Your faithful servant, for compared to You, no one is truly just.
Beloved, rely on Me to be your true plumb line. For regardless of your best efforts, you will always function with bias and flawed judgment. Only I AM the righteous judge, so resist the urge to attempt to stand in My shoes.
Rather lean on Me. Trust Me to guide you in true righteousness. Love as I love. For as you walk as a reflection of Me, you manifest My glory in the earth and make My heart known to the children of men.
Proverbs 1:10 (VOICE) My son, should your less honorable peers pressure you to do what is wrong, you should be strong enough not to go along.
Beloved, refuse to be pressured into bad or questionable behavior by those around you. Calibrate your behavior to align with My Word. I AM your true north – your guiding star, so look to Me for direction and refuse to be knocked off course.
Rather than succumbing to pressure, be a standard setter yourself. Quietly lead by example that others might see what it looks like to live in a way that honors Me. Trust Me to strengthen you. Focus on being a God-pleaser instead of a pleaser of men. For in the end, I AM the One who matters, so look to Me.
Matthew 18:20 (VOICE) For when two or three gather together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.
Beloved, be intentional to keep Me in your midst. For unity and harmony come much more smoothly when everyone is seeking to align with Me rather than their personal agendas. In the end, My Kingdom reigns eternal. That is where your attentions and efforts are best spent.
So choose to focus on Me. For though I move in power, I also move in humility. Power is not an arrogant assertion of one’s rights, but rather an inherent strength that simply is. In the same way true leaders draw followers to themselves whether they’re trying to or not, when you operate in true power, its manifestation will always make itself visible.
So choose to align with Me. Submit yourself in love and humility. Be a vessel of unity – intentionally cultivate harmony. Keep Me in your midst. Then watch as the fruit comes forth and you see My Kingdom increasingly manifesting on earth.

James 3:16 (NLT) For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind.
Beloved, refuse to open the door for the kingdom of darkness. Those who succumb to jealousy and greed are not operating in My flow. Being obsessed with your own interests is counter to the way I move. If you are not working with Me, you’re working against Me. So refuse to take the bait.
Refuse to be drawn in by the world’s system. Refuse to fall prey to comparisons with others. Seek Me. Seek My plans for you. Be content, and overflow with gratitude. Each person has been given their role – their call, so seek to walk in the fullness of that which I’ve called you to.
Refuse to allow petty jealousies to distract you. Whose standard will you measure by? Mine is the only one that matters. So seek to fulfill what I have ordained for you with excellence and fullness of joy. Refuse to be derailed or drawn offtrack. Continue reading “Measure By My Standards”
Numbers 25:13 (NLT) In this covenant, I give him and his descendants a permanent right to the priesthood, for in his zeal for me, his God, he purified the people of Israel, making them right with me.”
Beloved, burn with holy passion for Me. Zeal without holiness is too easily influenced by the flesh. So be mindful to pursue both – holiness and passion – that you might be righteous in your zeal and reflect My heart.
In your passion, sin not. Let Me set your heart ablaze, and burn away the dross that you might burn with a holy flame. Align your heart with Mine that the things that move Me might also move you. Feel and feel deeply, beloved, and allow your holy passion to be a mighty force for My Kingdom.
