Safe within My Arms {Moments with God}

{He whispers} Hide yourself in Me. Hover close. Find refuge in the shadow of My wings. 

{I feel Him reaching as if to pull me in. I have only to yield and stay close. And yet – oh and yet – the temptation to forge my own path and go my own way is strong. I look to Him and look away – considering my choice. But in the end I take the only one that can possibly end well, and I surrender myself into His care. As I snuggle in, He kisses my head and holds me close, and whispers} You’ve chosen well, beloved. I love you with all My heart. You can trust Me to sustain you, and know you’re always safe within My arms. 

Psalm 91:1 (VOICE) He who takes refuge in the shelter of the Most High will be safe in the shadow of the Almighty.

Surrender to My Care

Psalm 3:3 (VOICE) But You, Eternal One, wrap around me like an impenetrable shield. You give me glory and lift my eyes up to the heavens.

Beloved, feel My arms around you. I hold you tight in My embrace. Allow My love to shield you – allow Me to keep you safe. Feel My love saturate you as it softens you and prepares you to withstand the blows that life will bring. Safe you are, and safe you’ll stay, enveloped in My care. 

Be glorified and changed as you rest tight within My arms. From heaven above to the earth below, nothing can rock you, or move you from My touch. Yield to Me completely and surrender to My care. My love will always shield you, and you will find your safety there. 

I AM Good

Psalm 56:10 (TPT) I trust in the Lord. And I praise him! I trust in the Word of God. And I praise him!

Beloved, in the midst of trials, hold fast to that which you know is true: I AM good. That fact remains unchanging. Difficulties are not a sign that I’m cruel or uncaring. Hardships are simply a part of life. 

But I AM with you always. I stand by you – to comfort and to guide you – in good times and in bad. Trust in Me. Resist the urge to blame or accuse Me, for I AM loving and I AM good. And I will bring forth beauty from ashes, so wait for it and rest in Me.

I’m Safe in Your Arms

{Pausing in His presence, I feel His arms enclose around me as I say} Papa, I know that I’m safe in Your arms. You – Olam Zerowa, the Everlasting Arms, hold me tightly. You keep me firmly sheltered in Your loving grip. Thank You for the comfort You bring. 

{I feel His cheek rest on the top of my head as I nestle in like a child. He whispers} You are My beloved – so precious to Me. I call you Mine, for you are My very own. 

{And as His arms close ever so slightly in a gentle squeeze He adds} You are safe with Me. I watch over you, and even My angels guard over you. Rest in My arms. Stay in My embrace. Know that you are seen, and you are loved, for you are Mine and I love you.

Psalm 121:5 (TPT) Jehovah himself will watch over you; he’s always at your side to shelter you safely in his presence.

Sheltered in My Strong Love

Psalm 36:7 (VOICE) Your strong love, O True God, is precious. All people run for shelter under the shadow of Your wings.

Beloved, I wait – with outstretched arms that you might hide in the shadow of My wings. Like a mother bird shelters her chicks, I AM always here to shelter you in My strong love. 

It isn’t a question of whether you are worth protecting or if I’m willing, I AM always ready and waiting for you. So come and rest in Me. Refuse to try to “maintain” in your own strength because I AM here for you, beloved, always. So cast your cares on Me.

Run to Me, and cling fast. I AM ready, willing, and able. I AM your comfort and your place of refuge, so find rest and refreshing in Me. I AM El Tsur – God your strength, so find what you need as you rest in Me.

You Are Not Alone

Psalm 62:1 (TPT) I stand silently to listen for the one I love, waiting as long as it takes for the Lord to rescue me. For God alone has become my Savior.

Beloved, you are not alone. Nor do you need to tackle the trials that come by yourself, for I AM with you, and I AM here to comfort you. I AM YHVH Shammah – the Lord who is present, and I AM always here. 

So look to Me, and wait on Me – knowing I meet every need. I AM your help, and the One who saves, so trust in Me. Look to Me with hopeful expectation. Trust Me to navigate, and leave each step to My loving hands. 

YHVH Tsidkenu (the Lord your Righteousness)

Psalm 23:2-3 (VOICE) …He soothes my fears; He makes me whole again, steering me off worn, hard paths to roads where truth and righteousness echo His name.

Beloved, I AM YHVH Tsidkenu – the Lord your righteousness. Follow Me, for I will lead you rightly. When you walk with Me, you will not go astray. Walk in truth, and be the child of the Light you’ve been called to be. 

Resist the darkness, and the fruit of the enemy’s influence. My perfect love casts out all fear, so refuse to embrace it. Resist the urge to indulge in worry, and instead trust that I AM leading you. 

Yield to My soothing touch. And let My rod and My staff bring direction and comfort. I AM with you always, and My counsel is trustworthy for I AM righteousness and I AM truth. Trust in Me. Continue reading “YHVH Tsidkenu (the Lord your Righteousness)”

Embrace the Wealth of Comfort

2 Corinthians 1:5 (VOICE) For even as His suffering continues to flood over us, through the Anointed we experience the wealth of His comfort just the same.

Beloved, embrace the wealth of comfort I offer. Refuse to stay stuck in pain. Allow Me to guide you through to the other side. There is no shame in grief or in feeling things deeply. Nor is there shame in taking time to pause – in acknowledging your experience. But there comes a moment when it is time to step forward. And just as relearning to walk after a serious injury can be difficult, moving forward after an emotional blow can be equally trying. And yet, you must try. You must carry on. 

Resist the urge to wallow when it comes time to step forward. Refuse to give the enemy a toehold. Trust that My strength will sustain you. Trust that My love will uplift you. And trust that I will use all the pain for good purpose; all that was intended to bring devastation, I will use to bring more life. Because I AM the giver of live, and I give it abundantly. Continue reading “Embrace the Wealth of Comfort”

Find Fellowship with Me

2 Corinthians 1:4 (VOICE) He consoles us as we endure the pain and hardship of life so that we may draw from His comfort and share it with others in their own struggles. 

Beloved, in the midst of pain, I AM still with you. No hardship will scare Me away. I will use each one to grow you and strengthen your character, if you will yield to Me. Draw comfort from Me. You are not alone.

And remember as you endure the sufferings, that I have endured them as well. And when you encounter betrayal, remember I have encountered it as well. And when you’re ridiculed, misjudged, and persecuted – remember, beloved, I have been too. So draw close to Me, and in the midst of trial, find fellowship with Me. Continue reading “Find Fellowship with Me”

Elohei khol-Nechamah (God of all Comfort)

2 Corinthians 1:3 (VOICE) All praise goes to God, Father of our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. He is the Father of compassion, the God of all comfort.

Beloved, I AM Elohei khol-Nechamah – God of all Comfort, so trust your heart to Me. I AM keenly aware of the troubles that try you, and I remain by your side – sustaining you – through them all. 

So be at peace. Quiet your soul. Trust that the afflictions of this world will pass, but My love remains steadfast and true. Let My love uplift you and carry you as on eagles wings. Let My hand guide you, and let My Spirit comfort you.  Continue reading “Elohei khol-Nechamah (God of all Comfort)”
