Hold My Heart {Moments with God}

{Crying in my heart} Please hear me, Father. I feel weighed down in spirit and troubled in my heart. So in my distress I turn to You (just as I do in my joy). In confusion I will cling to You (because You’ll never steer me wrong). I don’t understand what is troubling me, or why I’m in despair. But this is the way You’ve wired me, and so I trust my heart in Your care.

{His whispered reply} You’re beautiful, My precious one, and I’ve made you flawlessly. My design for you is beautiful, even when it’s incomprehensible for you – still then I can clearly see exactly what I had in mind, and how I see it playing out. You are exactly as you should be, a gift to the world and a joy to Me. So let Me lavish My love upon you, and let My Spirit minister to your soul. Your heart is so precious to Me, thank you for trusting it to Me to hold.

Psalm 86:1 (ESV) Incline your ear, O LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.

Keenly Attuned

Psalm 17:6 (VOICE) I am crying aloud to You, O True God, for I long to know Your answer. Hear me, O God. Hear my plea. Hear my prayer for help.

Beloved, I AM keenly attuned to your voice. I don’t miss one utterance that falls from your lips. I know you so well that I don’t miss even your unspoken heart cries. I hear them all. I AM always ready and I AM always listening.

In the same way a good parent would not sit back and watch as their child struggled and drowned, know that I too am keenly attentive to your every need, so you don’t have to beg for My help or My attention – I give it freely. I listen to each whisper, and anticipate every need. So trust that I AM with you and that I will never leave.

Psalm 17:5-8 (VOICE) I will press on —moving steadfastly forward along Your path. I will not look back. I will not stumble. I am crying aloud to You, O True God, for I long to know Your answer. Hear me, O God. Hear my plea. Hear my prayer for help. Put Your marvelous love on display for all to see. Liberator of those who long for shelter beside You, set them safely away from their enemies, ever welcomed by grace. Keep close watch over me as the apple of Your eye; shelter me in the shadow of Your wings.

Dwell in Safety with Me

Psalm 91:9-10 (AMP) Because you have made the Lord, [who is] my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague come near your tent.

Beloved, choose Me. The shelter of My wing is available for you, but you must choose Me. I will not force Myself on you, but I AM here – ready to hold you close. Just as you can choose to stand under an umbrella or choose to step out from under it, so you can decide if you’d like to yield to My protection or if you prefer something or someone else.

Resist the urge to rely on yourself and your own abilities to control the outcome. Refuse to try to finagle your own earthly solutions. Instead look to Me, come to Me, and then trust Me to lead. I’m fully able to bring solutions to you, or grant favor and open doors on your behalf. So trust Me, and dwell in safety with Me. Continue reading “Dwell in Safety with Me”

Fear Not

Psalm 91:5-6 (AMP) You will not be afraid of the terror of night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, Nor of the destruction (sudden death) that lays waste at noon.

Beloved, refuse to fall into the trap of fear. For there will always be something that appears to be looming – something wanting to intimidate you and convince you of certain defeat. And those things could be legitimate concerns if you didn’t know Me, and you weren’t Mine, but you do, and you are.

I AM bigger and stronger than any foe that might come against you. No situation is so complex that I cannot find a way through. No opposition is formidable enough to scare Me away. And no plot against you is so clever that it can catch Me unaware. I AM able, and you are Mine, so fear not. Continue reading “Fear Not”

Place of Safety

Psalm 91:4 (AMP) He will cover you and completely protect you with His pinions, And under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and a wall.

Beloved, I will shelter you in My love, and hide you within My bosom. Find your place of safety in My arms – within the sphere of My tender, loving care. For I AM good, and I love My children. I will not stand idly by as by as calamity breaks down your door, for I AM with you, and I sustain you.

The fact that I AM steadfast and faithful from generation to generation means you can trust Me. For I AM the same yesterday, today, and forever, and I AM good. So make your place of safety one that’s found in Me. Continue reading “Place of Safety”

Rest in the Safety of My Embrace

Psalm 91:1 (AMP) He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].

Beloved, rest in the safety of My embrace. For I AM an impenetrable fortress of protection. This does not mean troubles will never come, for they inevitably will, but it is a reminder that your ability to navigate those rocky waters is with you always. That comes through Me.

Therefore, there is no need to tremble in fear, or stress yourself with anxiety. Cast your cares on Me, beloved, for I care for you. Any semblance of control you think you have is but an illusion anyway, so yield yourself into My hands. Trust Me. Continue reading “Rest in the Safety of My Embrace”

Step into My Open Arms

Psalm 84:10 (TPT) For just one day of intimacy with you is like a thousand days of joy rolled into one! I’d rather stand at the threshold in front of the Gate Beautiful, ready to go in and worship my God, than to live my life without you in the most beautiful palace of the wicked.

Beloved, everything else pales in comparison to the true intimacy that you can have with Me. Nothing is more fulfilling. Anything else that may satisfy you, only does so for a moment rather than for eternity. I AM what truly satisfies your soul, and fills the longings of your heart.

If your experience of relationship with Me doesn’t align with those truths, then know there is more available for you. Refuse to settle for less. Resist the urge to assume there’s something wrong with you or that I’m withholding Myself – or whatever lie the enemy might whisper, but rather continue to persistently press in. Continue reading “Step into My Open Arms”

Trust My Love for You

Psalm 84:9 (TPT) God, your wrap-around presence is our defense. In your kindness look upon the faces of your anointed ones.

Beloved, I go before you, and I AM your rear guard. Nothing comes near you without My knowing. And I AM with you, sustaining you. My attention never wavers. Trust yourself into My care. Step into My loving arms and let Me hold you close when you’re afraid.

I AM Olam Zerowa – the everlasting arms, and I AM always with you and I will never leave you, so rest in Me. I look upon you with the tender eyes of One who adores you. Trust My love for you – feel it encompass you in a cocoon of safety. Continue reading “Trust My Love for You”

Step Securely

Psalm 129:4 (VOICE) The Eternal is just. He’s severed the bindings of the wicked so they can’t hurt me anymore.

Beloved, you are safe with Me, for with Me you step securely. I AM Elohim Mishpat – God of Justice, the righteous judge, so trust Me to bring true justice. For the heart of justice is making wrong things right.

I advocate for the widows and orphans. I AM mindful of the lost and hurting. The humble know My name. I AM good, and I do good. For I AM a good Father, who leads you securely, so follow Me.

Stepping in Safety

Psalm 124:8 (VOICE) Our help has come in the name of the Eternal, the Maker of heaven and earth!

Beloved, as you walk, you are stepping in safety, for I AM God – creator of heaven and earth. I AM El Shaddai – the all-sufficient one, and El Elyon – the most high God. Who is there above Me? Whose power is greater? Whose arm is longer? Who sees all and knows all but Me?

There is none above Me, and you belong to Me. I have accepted you as My very own. I AM your comfort and your help in times of trouble, and I AM eternally faithful. My love exceeds man’s ability to understand. So step safely as you walk with Me. Continue reading “Stepping in Safety”
