Leviticus 2:13 (VOICE) You must salt every grain offering you bring so that the salt of your covenant with God will not be missing. You will season all of the offerings you present with salt.
Beloved, salt is essential. It is a necessary part that when missing is noticeably absent. It has a call and a purpose that is needed and undeniable. It is vital to life.
And, beloved, you are the salt of the earth. You are essential. You are life-giving. You are necessary and have purpose. Denying any of that doesn’t change the truth. So embrace the truth of who you are, how you’ve been made, and what you’ve been called to, for only in doing so can you reach your full potential and find true fulfillment.
Matthew 5:13 (AMP) You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has lost its taste (purpose), how can it be made salty? It is no longer good for anything, but to be thrown out and walked on by people [when the walkways are wet and slippery].
Beloved, you have been created with a purpose for a call. Simply being you – all I’ve created you to be – and yielding to the plans I have for you (which are good plans) demonstrates who I AM. You are created in My image, and created to bear fruit.
What then is the purpose of an apple tree that bears no fruit? It is purposeless, and though secondary (and lesser) use may be found for it, it is not fulfilling its call. In the same way, refuse to settle for anything less than the fullness of all I’ve created you for. Trust Me to lead, yield to My direction, and bear fruit.
Malachi 2:6 (TLB) He passed on to the people all the truth he got from me. He did not lie or cheat; he walked with me, living a good and righteous life, and turned many from their lives of sin.
Beloved, I pour in that you might pour out. You are a conduit not a reservoir. You are set apart with an intentional call and purpose. Walk in it. Release that which I have deposited in you.
Walk in truth and righteousness, beloved. You have no idea the impact your simple obedience has in heaven and on earth. It is atmosphere changing. Walk with Me – holy and set apart.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 (AMP) He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]—yet man cannot find out (comprehend, grasp) what God has done (His overall plan) from the beginning to the end.
Beloved, I have placed a longing in your heart for more. A longing that can only be fulfilled by walking out the call that I have ordained for you. You sense this. Your spirit feels the call. And now it’s time to step forward.
For everything there is a season – a time to plan and a time to execute those plans. Now is the time to step forward into your divine destiny. I have prepared you and made the way clear. So walk on, beloved. The time has come to begin to see the fullness of all I have in store. Walk in blessing.
Colossians 2:10 (VOICE) You, too, are being completed in Him, the One who has dominion over all rule, all authority.
Beloved, remember the One you serve. I AM sovereign. I AM not some powerless, man-crafted idol. I AM the Creator of heaven and earth, the great I AM, the Commander of the hosts of heaven. Those who see Me tremble in awe. And you are on My side, and guided by My hand – acting on My behalf. This is no light calling. It is a weighty responsibility, but one for which you’ve been prepared.
So shine, beloved. Be you without restraint. Allow the embodiment of all I’ve placed within you to radiate forth as you reflect Me in unhindered glory that those who see you might know Me. Let nothing dim your blaze, for simply to shine uncompromised and unashamed is more fearsome warfare than you can imagine – it is a key to the Kingdom. Continue reading “Key to the Kingdom: Reflect Me in Unhindered Glory”
Luke 4:18 (VOICE) The Spirit of the Lord the Eternal One is on Me. Why? Because the Eternal designated Me to be His representative to the poor, to preach good news to them.
Beloved, be My voice. Open your mouth and trust Me to fill it. Allow My Spirit to flow through you, to inspire thought and action, to give vision of the unseen, and to bring prophetic revelation in My perfect timing. Trust, and yield to My flow.
As you partner with My Spirit, you will see the miraculous take place. The supernatural will become as if it were common so clear and continuous its evidence. The gifts of My Spirit alive and on display for all to see. The beauty of My glory manifest on earth and in the heavens. Choose, beloved, choose to yield and flow in Me. Continue reading “Spirit of the Lord”
Jeremiah 1:5 (AMP) “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you [and approved of you as My chosen instrument], And before you were born I consecrated you [to Myself as My own]; I have appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
Beloved, you will not haphazardly stumble upon your call. There is nothing arbitrary about the path you’re walking. Even in events that may be seemingly random, My hand is always at work. I have called you. I have chosen you. So trust that I have and will continue to equip you every step of the way.
Resist the temptation to minimize the value of what you bring to the world. Simply because certain things come more easily to you than others does not make them valueless, it simply means they’re gifts I’ve anointed you to operate in. Embrace them wholeheartedly – with childlike faith trusting Me to lead and guide you every step of the way.
Ephesians 5:13 (VOICE) When the light shines, it exposes even the dark and shadowy things and turns them into pure reflections of light.
Beloved, resist the urge to be intimidated by darkness for the power of My light far exceeds the deepest of night. One pinprick of light disperses the oppressive gloom, and you are a carrier of My light – you are filled with it.
So radiate without shame. Let it burst forth from you in all its inherent glory. You have a light that darkness cannot diminish or quell. Know and understand the power within you. You carry the Spirit of the Almighty.
What or who can stand against you when you are filled with Me? Where is the purpose in being afraid? Does light tremble in fear darkness may overcome it? Never! Be confident, bold, and steadfast as you walk as a child of the Light. Continue reading “Child of the Light”
Psalm 27:1 (VOICE) The Eternal is my light amidst my darkness and my rescue in times of trouble. So whom shall I fear? He surrounds me with a fortress of protection. So nothing should cause me alarm.
Beloved, I AM Light. I AM the source. You act as My rays – shining out for all the world to see. Darkness cannot stand in the face of the blinding beauty of heavenly light. Reflect Me. Allow My pure light to warm those around you, and draw them to Me without a word – simply by your radiant glow.
I bring clarity. I bring truth. In Me no confusion can remain. I AM the Light of the World – there is no changing darkness in Me, I AM the light of revelation, and I AM the bringer of truth. No darkness may remain, the enemy must flee. So breathe easy, beloved, and rest in the glorious radiance of El Ori.
Matthew 5:15-16 (TLB) Don’t hide your light! Let it shine for all; let your good deeds glow for all to see, so that they will praise your heavenly Father.
Beloved, you are My show piece – a glorious example of My beauty and grace made manifest in the earth. Don’t hide yourself; hiding yourself means hiding the glory of My handiwork that was created to bless, encourage, and impact the world around you.
Shine brightly, beloved. Refuse to hide who I’ve created you to be by bending to the opinions of man, but instead boldly live a life of authenticity, displaying the true you in all your gloriously flawed beauty that My power and majesty might be made known.
