My Eye is on the Sparrow

Matthew 10:30 (VOICE) You, beloved, are worth so much more than a whole flock of sparrows. God knows everything about you, even the number of hairs on your head. So do not fear.

Beloved, never question how precious you are to Me. I know everything about you, and am interested in all of it. You are priceless beyond measure. Resist the urge to doubt My love for you based on earthly circumstances or the words and treatment of men.

Beloved, My eye is on the sparrow. Knowing that I’m mindful of the least of creatures, can you truly believe yourself lower than that? You have been made in My image. So stand tall, knowing you are loved, and trust Me as Lord of all.

Loving Ears

Psalm 17:6 (TPT) You will answer me, God; I know you always will, like you always do as you listen with love to my every prayer.

Beloved, think not that I am deaf to your petitions simply because I do not answer quickly or in the way you expected. I listen with the loving ears of One who adores you and who has the utmost concern for the things that matter to you.

You can trust Me with the desires of your heart and the prayers of your deepest longing. Share them with Me, beloved, that we might hold them close together. For I AM faithful to respond, and always faithful to be working for good.

Love is a Powerful Weapon

Proverbs 15:1 (TPT) Respond gently when you are confronted and you’ll defuse the rage of another. Responding with sharp, cutting words will only make it worse. Don’t you know that being angry can ruin the testimony of even the wisest of men?

Beloved, love is a powerful weapon. Just as a gentle flow of steady water can change the face of stone, so love has the power to change even the hardest of hearts. So love well, and do so without reserve. 

For you have been well equipped. I pour out My love over you – demonstrating My unconditional, limitless love for you each day. As you allow yourself to be saturated in My love, you are equipping yourself to pour it back out as you love others.

Give your love as an offering to Me. Resist the urge to love to gain an earthly response, but rather do it to My glory. Because I AM love. Therefore operating in love means you are flowing in Me. So love well. Love always. Love like Me.

Beyond Measure

Psalm 46:10 (NASB) Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

Beloved, cease striving. You don’t need to earn My love. It is freely given; and it is given in more abundance than you could begin to imagine. So freely receive, knowing that I love you beyond measure. My heart is steadfast toward you. My love is everlasting.

So function from a place of acceptance – knowing My love is yours. Nothing you do can earn more of My love, nor can any mistake cause you to lose it. I’m not fickle, nor am I easily distracted. My gaze is on you. My heart is fixed on you. So be saturated in My immeasurable love, and from that place be transformed. Continue reading “Beyond Measure”

Be Swept Away in a Romance with Me

Psalm 45:11 (VOICE) Because the king yearns for your beauty, humble yourself before him, for he is now your lord.

Beloved, no words could begin to express the depth of My love. I yearn for you with a fervor that cannot be quenched. If you hunger and thirst for Me, it does not leave Me simply lavishing in your love. Rather that passion of feeling might begin to match the intensity of Mine. 

Refuse to hold back. Refuse to guard your heart with Me. Glory in the fullness of a love affair with Me. Then watch as it bears fruit – both the loving and the receiving of love acting as powerful life- and atmosphere-changers. So be swept away in a romance with Me.  Continue reading “Be Swept Away in a Romance with Me”

Exulting in Your Love {Moments with God}

{my heart whispers} You overwhelm me with your love. And yet I cannot get enough. A thousand heart-kisses and I’m still longing for more. How can I do anything but rejoice in You and give thanks for all You are? Your glory is beyond my comprehension, and your grace fills me with hope. I can never get enough. Thankfully, Your abundant love knows no bounds. How rich and sweet is the flavor of your love. 

{with conviction I share} So yes, I will exult in You and in the glorious hope You bring. You are far more worthy than any offering I can give, and yet what I present is enough. You’ve deemed me enough – as unfathomable as that seems. I am your choice, and I will not try to convince you otherwise. Instead, I will strive to make my heart believe (and receive) that which you’ve richly bestowed upon me. 

{with humble reverence I add} Thank You. Thank You for loving me. Thank You for choosing me. Thank You for making me Your own.

Song of Songs 1:2-4 (TPT) Let him smother me with kisses—his Spirit-kiss divine. So kind are your caresses, I drink them in like the sweetest wine! Your presence releases a fragrance so pleasing— over and over poured out. For your lovely name is “Flowing Oil.” No wonder the brides-to-be adore you. Draw me into your heart. We will run away together into the king’s cloud-filled chamber. We will remember your love, rejoicing and delighting in you, celebrating your every kiss as better than wine. No wonder righteousness adores you!

Burn for Me without Restraint

Song of Solomon 8:6 (VOICE) Set me as a seal over your heart; wear me as an emblem on your arm For love is as strong as death, and jealousy is as relentless as the grave. Love flares up like a blazing fire, a very ardent flame.

Beloved, never will My hunger for you be quenched. There is nothing you can do or say to extinguish My devotion to you. Though earthly love may seem to be fickle or fade, Mine never will – it never does. I AM wholly steadfast, completely ardent, and totally head-over-heels in love with you.

So open your heart to Me – fully allow Me access. Resist the urge to hold back, and instead be consumed by your passion for Me and for the things of Me. Let your fire for Me burn so brightly that all who know you can’t help but see its glorious flames and be warmed by the depth of your affections. Beloved, burn for Me without restraint.

Love Freely and Lavishly Bestowed {Moments with God}

{He whispers} My beloved, I delight in you. You’ve captured My gaze and hold Me enthralled.

{I hide my face} I’m unworthy. How can I be the one You choose?

{Gently He responds} Don’t hide your face from Me, beloved. This isn’t about worth or lack there of, this is the gift of My love – freely and lavishly bestowed on the one I have chosen. Simply receive. 

{Eyes filled with wonder I respond} I don’t know how. How can I receive something I feel incapable of deserving? It feels like too much. 

{With a kind smile He replies} It serves no purpose to reject it. It simply wastes the gift being given. Like a cool glass of water on a hot day, leaving it sitting in the glass to evaporate won’t quench your thirst nor will it benefit anyone else, and it wastes the effort of having retrieved it. So open your heart and let My love overflow and refresh. Let it bring healing to the dry and cracked places in your heart. I AM beholding you, and I find you beautiful. I have called you My own. You are Mine, so receive. 

{With my heart and hands open, I receive}

Psalm 45:11 (TPT) For your royal Bridegroom is ravished by your beautiful brightness. Bow in reverence before him, for he is your Lord!

I AM the Living God

Luke 24:5 (TPT) Terrified, the women fell to the ground on their faces. The men in white said to them, “Why would you look for the living One in a tomb? He is not here, for he has risen!

Beloved, too often people are tempted to look for Me in the wrong places. They forget the full majesty of My glory and the awesome authority of My sovereignty. I AM bigger than most can begin to understand.  Resist the urge to fall into that trap. See Me as I AM: the King of Glory, Lord of all, the Living God. 

I AM high and lifted up – holy and worthy of all honor and praise. See Me, beloved, and understand that with all that I AM, you are the apple of My eye. Despite the greatness of My majesty and the weight of My authority, I know your every need, count your every hair, and catch your every tear. You are My beloved, and I AM the Living God.

I AM Lord of All

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.
