James 3:6 (CSB) And the tongue is a fire. The tongue, a world of unrighteousness, is placed among our members. It stains the whole body, sets the course of life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
Beloved, refuse to underestimate the power your tongue wields. With your mouth, you can wreak immense damage that affects your whole body as well as those around you. Resist the urge to try to marginalize its impact. But at the same time, refuse to be cowed into silence either.
Remember that power can be used for good or evil. So rather than causing trouble, instead use your mouth to bring life and share hope – to build up rather than tearing down. In this way, you can become a fount of life. As a yielded vessel, your mouth can pour forth the sparkling, clear flow that comes straight from My Spirit. So surrender yourself to Me, beloved, and be a powerful vessel of life. Continue reading “Powerful Vessel of Life”
Ephesians 3:20 (NLT) Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
Beloved, never underestimate the power of My breath, for no death can prevail against My breath of life, My Holy Spirit. Refuse to allow your natural senses to mandate truth, and instead look to Me and seek My judgement. For I AM wise and merciful – abounding in love, and nothing is too hard for Me.
Ask Me to breathe. Ask for My Holy Spirit to invade. Have faith that I AM fully able to do “abundantly above all you can ask of think” and think big. Prophesy to the dead bones, “Come alive!” No situation is beyond My redemption, so look to Me is faith, beloved, and believe.
Jeremiah 1:10 (VOICE) This very day I appointed you to speak with My authority over nations and kingdoms. Your word — My word — will have the power to uproot and stamp out; it will destroy and upend. And then your word—My word— will rebuild and plant anew.
Beloved, refuse to underestimate the power of the words you speak. For I AM the one who has filled your mouth, so your power and authority comes from Me. Truly your tongue holds the power of life and death, so wield that authority wisely.
Speak with expectancy, and have faith in the Power behind your words. For I AM Elohim Yakol – God Most Able, and nothing is too hard for Me. So expect Me to move. Expect the manifestation of My power. Expect the fullness of My glory. Speak in faith, beloved, and then wait to see Me move. Continue reading “Speak in Faith”
Isaiah 43:19 (NLT) For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
Beloved, get ready for what comes next. I love to surprise you and to stretch you. So prepare your heart for My plans, whatever they may be. Enjoy the journey – with all its twists and turns, for you know that I AM with you and at work in it all for good.
Cultivate a sense of expectancy based on who you know I AM. Wait with joy as you step out in faith knowing I AM making the way straight for you. Look for My hand at work, and rejoice and give glory to Me. For, beloved, I AM the way maker and nothing is too hard for Me.
Mark 16:20 (VOICE) The disciples went out proclaiming the good news; and the risen Lord continued working through them, confirming every word they spoke with the signs He performed through them.]
Beloved, expect manifestations of My power. For what is the point of praying for the miraculous if you aren’t fully persuaded that the One you beseech is more than able to do “abundantly above all you could ask or think”? Choose to know Me, and choose to believe.
Walk in the full authority and power of the One who has sent you: Me. You are the emissaries of heaven. Yielded and willing vessels – created to usher the supernatural into the natural realm because you know who I AM and you believe. So stand and speak in faith, and watch Me move.
Ephesians 3:20 (TPT) Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.
Beloved, I love you with an everlasting love and My power knows no end. I AM able to do far more than you can ever imagine. I AM Elohim Yakol – God most able, and nothing is too hard for Me. Refuse to limit Me or assume My arm is too short or My authority is not sufficient, for I AM God.
And I have created you in My image, so refuse to short change yourself or indulge in insecurities. For I have made you. I have equipped you. And I have empowered you, so walk in boldness. Remember that you are made in the image of Elohim Yakol, so you are able when you find your strength in Me.
Revelation 4:8 (AMP) And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes all over and within [underneath their wings]; and day and night they never stop saying, “Holy, holy, holy [is the] Lord God, the Almighty [the Omnipotent, the Ruler of all], who was and who is and who is to come [the unchanging, eternal God].”
Beloved, I AM the Lord God omnipotent, and I AM clothed in power. Nothing is too hard for Me, and nothing is beyond My reach. I AM mighty and awesome – ruler of all. And yet – though I AM worthy of all glory and honor – I have made you the focus of My attention, the apple of My eye.
I AM a good Father. And though I have the power to shatter the mountains and turn them to dust, I gently comfort and protect My children. I AM fierce, yet I AM loving. I AM terrifying, yet I have made Myself approachable. I AM the Lord God omnipotent, and I reign.
Revelation 19:6 (KJV) And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
Psalm 16:11 (TPT) For you bring me a continual revelation of resurrection life, the path to the bliss that brings me face-to-face with you.
Beloved, meditate on Me. As you press in for more, I AM faithful to bring revelation. For it is My heart’s desire that you might increase your understanding of the things of Me and My Kingdom. I want you to know – fully and experientially know – My life-giving love, that My resurrection power might infiltrate all areas of your life and be manifest for My glory.
So press in, beloved. Refuse to settle for less. Be like Moses – desire to see Me face-to-face, and watch as My presence changes your very countenance that others may see and know that you know Me. Find joy in My presence and be made whole.
Psalm 121:1-2 (ESV) I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
Beloved, keep your gaze on Me, for nothing on earth can strengthen and empower you more than I can. No one is a stronger advocate for you than I AM. And no one is more able to fight on your behalf. So resist the urge to look for human help as a first response, and instead look to Me.
Trust that I will direct you. Trust that I will instruct you. Trust that I will empower you. Trust that I AM all you need. I AM the holy One – Elohim Qadosh, the Holy God. Trust Me to do what is right, and know that all power comes from Me, for I AM God.
Psalm 118:17 (NKJV) I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of the LORD.
Beloved, though the enemy of your soul has done his best to take you down, he has not (and will not) succeed. You are Mine. You walk in My resurrection power, and the beauty of My redemption in you is complete. By faith receive it. Allow My love to heal you from the inside out.
So live, beloved, and do so with the abundant life I have given you. Then testify. Declare My works to all who will have ears to hear, and do so through both your actions and words. Live out loud, boldly making known that you are loved and that I AM your God.
