Psalm 56:11 (AMP) In God have I put my trust and confident reliance; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
Beloved, resist any temptation to be intimidated by men. For I AM God – I AM able to bestow honor and riches and favor. You need never strive for those things. Nor need you be worried over men’s machinations or threats, for I AM always with you and My right hand upholds you.
Men have what power I have allowed, you need not fear them or feel forced to trust them. Instead trust Me. Instead give reverence and honor to Me, for I AM the only true God. Refuse to even allow your fears or your tears to give more honor to them than you would to Me. Trust Me to meet every need, for I AM good.

Revelation 4:10-11 (AMP) the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne, and they worship Him who lives forever and ever; and they throw down their crowns before the throne, saying, “Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they exist, and were created and brought into being.”
Beloved, I AM worthy to receive. So just as the elders cast their crowns before Me, surrender that which you hold dear – that which brings you glory, and give it as an offering to Me. Your accomplishments achieved with talents and wisdom I gave you, in those acknowledge Me. Your creations executed with inspiration from My Spirit, in those give glory to Me. Your positions granted with favor and success that comes from Me, in those honor and exalt Me.
All that you are and all that you have is from Me. Give honor where honor is due, for I will receive those sacrifices and offerings. They are a sweet fragrance before My throne. For it is exquisitely precious to be acknowledged by a good and grateful steward making the most with what he has been given.
Proverbs 10:12 (NLT) Hatred stirs up quarrels, but love makes up for all offenses.
Beloved, choosing to love instead of taking offense is always the right decision. There will always be misunderstandings or people acting from a place of hurt, but how you respond speaks to your character. And as you choose to love, you clearly reflect Me and My heart.
In extending the grace you yourself want to receive, you’re leading by example. And being known for being gracious and loving is a testament of one who knows Me. And beloved, know that you’re leaving a legacy of love that will reach farther and last longer than you can begin to imagine. Continue reading “Leave a Legacy of Love”
Psalms 96:4 (TPT) For the Lord’s greatness is beyond description and he deserves all the praise that comes to him. He is our King-God and it’s right to be in holy awe of him.
Beloved, though it is vital for you to know your identity in Me, don’t get stuck there. Resist the urge to keep your eyes on yourself. Rather keep your focus on Me and on who I AM. Stay in a place of humility. Allow your faith to enlarge as your reverential awe expands because you are learning to see Me as I AM.
Blessings and beauty come from My hand, so look to Me. Wait on Me to move – and wait with joy. For simply knowing Me and having a relationship with Me is worthy of gratitude. I AM beyond description, and yet I make Myself known to you. From the outpouring of My love I nourish your heart. Embrace your expanding reverential awe as you come to know Me more, for I desire to be known by you.
1 Corinthians 2:7 (VOICE) But we do impart God’s mysterious and hidden wisdom. Before the ages began, God graciously decided to use His wisdom for our glory.
Beloved, you have no idea the scope of what I have for you – greater than the depth of the sea and higher than the height of the heavens, so great is My love for you. The mysteries I have in store for you know no bounds – will you search them out with Me? Open your heart and come explore. Allow Me to be glorified in you. Allow Me to stretch your natural mind and reveal to you the things of the supernatural.
Be open, beloved. There is so much more for you to receive – if you are willing. Engage in this journey with Me. This is an active prospect, not a passive one. You don’t get to sit back and wait for Me to load you up with the gems of heaven. This treasure hunt requires your full participation. So take My hand and come away with Me as we explore together. Prepare to be amazed. Continue reading “Prepare to Be Amazed”
Psalm 92:12 (VOICE) Those who are devoted to God will flourish like budding date-palm trees; they will grow strong and tall like cedars in Lebanon.
Beloved, devote yourself to Me – not because of promised blessings, but simply because you love Me. But trust that blessings will come forth. For I AM, and I AM a rewarder of those who seek Me wholeheartedly.
How can I not want to lavish those I love with blessing? Resist the urge to look with avaricious eyes – only looking for blessing in finances or material things. Realize instead that I bless in a multitude of ways that are far less tangible.
I bless with peace, joy, favor, and so many other ways. So simply devote yourself to Me without focus on what you may gain. But then watch with keen eyes as My blessings abound around you. Continue reading “Devote Yourself to Me”
Psalm 26:7 (VOICE) From my soul, I will join the songs of thanksgiving; I will sing and proclaim Your wonder and mystery.
Beloved, come to Me like a child – wide eyed and filled with wonder. Ask Me a million questions – you will never wear Me out. I delight in you, and I have wired your curiosity, so resist the urge to be “adult” and tamp it down. Let your exuberance burst forth. Hold nothing back.
Be wide-eyed and mystified as you relentlessly pursue deeper understanding. Be dogged in your quest for truth. The things of Me are worth the effort, and the intimacy gained in your treasure hunt is prize enough alone. Be swept away in the mystery of Me.
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.
Amos 3:8 (VOICE) The lion has roared; who is not afraid? The Eternal Lord has been heard; His prophets can’t help but prophesy.
Beloved, the Lamb was slain, but behold, the Lion of Judah is alive and roaring. My sound activating the earth – a cry to My beloved ones. So open your mouth and let Me fill it. Allow My life-giving flow to pour forth from your lips, an overflow from your heart.
Stand in holy reverence, beloved. Acknowledge Me as King. Give honor where honor is due, and may your life demonstrate “holiness to the Lord” that those around you would see and know I AM God. Continue reading “Open Your Mouth and Let Me Fill It”
Psalm 108:1 (VOICE) My heart is committed, O God: I will sing; I will sing praises with great affection and pledge my whole soul to the singing.
Beloved, stand in awe of My splendor as night turns to dawn. Whether literal or in your circumstances, the dramatic shift from dark to light is worth delighting in. Give praise to the One who awakens the day. Give praise to the One, who shifts your dark circumstances to radiant joy.
I AM able. My name is Elohim Yakol, God most able. No night is so dark My light cannot pierce it. So wait expectantly for morning, and praise the One who brings forth the dawn. Rejoice in My splendor, beloved, for I AM worthy. Continue reading “Rejoice in My Splendor”
