YHVH Gibbor Milchamah (the Lord Mighty in Battle) {Moments with God}

{I declare} There is none like You. No one worthy – no one who can compare. No one can stand against You. And should they try, they would melt like wax before You if they stood as Your adversary. For there is no one like You in heaven or on earth. You are majestic and awesome – mighty beyond our comprehension. So I choose to stand with You. And come what may, I will remain steadfast, for by Your side is the only place I want to be. So where You are, I will be too. I trust You. I yield to Your plans. You are mighty and You are good. You are the Holy One. You are YHVH Gibbor Milchamah – the Lord Mighty in Battle. And You are worthy.

{Sensing the Lord’s presence hovering – like with the pillars of cloud and fire. In the same way Moses refused to move without the presence of the Almighty, so my heart stands fast with His presence. And I sense His pleasure over my unwillingness to move without Him. It’s as if He is giving a look that says, “Well done.”}

Psalm 76:7 (TPT) No wonder you are greatly feared! You are the awe-inspiring God! For who could ever stand before your face when your fierce anger burns and live to tell about it.

Exodus 33:15 (VOICE) If Your presence doesn’t travel with me, then don’t lead us away from here.

Open Your Mouth and Let Me Fill It

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”

I AM Lord of All

Exodus 15:3 (AMP) The Lord is a warrior; The Lord is His name.

Beloved, I will not retreat from a fight. I battle for those I love because I deem you worthy. You are precious and prized – the apple of My eye, and when someone hurts you, it hurts Me. So leave justice in My hands, for only My judgment is righteous. 

You can trust in Me. You can trust your heart in My care. Give yourself to me fully – without holding back, and watch how I lavish My love upon you. I AM Lord of all. I AM. 

El Shaddai (God Almighty)

Exodus 33:15 (AMP) And Moses said to Him, “If Your presence does not go [with me], do not lead us up from here.

Beloved, let your heart be so taken with My presence that you refuse to move without Me. Remember that I AM El Shaddai (God Almighty), and the source of all life and power. Nothing good is accomplished without My hand. 

Look to Me. Be steadfast in your gaze. Resist the urge to be distracted or to wander out from under the shadow of My wing. Allow Me to lead and accept no substitute. For I AM God, and there is none like Me. 

Stand in Faith

Exodus 14:14 (NLT) The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”

Beloved, stand in faith – that is your role. Stand, trusting Me to fight on your behalf. Trusting that I will be victorious. Trusting Me. Rally your heart, and declare My name to the nations. Stand in agreement with all I AM – the Lord strong and mighty, victorious in battle. 

Beloved, stay calm – calm because you trust Me at My word. If you believe My promises, what have you to fret over? I AM true to My word. I AM faithful from generation to generation. And I AM victorious. 

Your calmness is warfare. It is a declaration of trust. It is a silent battle cry. It is an act of faith. Never underestimate the power of faith nor the weight an act of faith has in the spiritual realm. So stand in faith, beloved, and watch as I move.

El Qanna (Jealous God)

Exodus 34:14 (VOICE) because you must not worship any god except for Me. My name is Jealous, and I am a jealous God.

Beloved, I do not compromise and I will not share. You are Mine, and your fidelity – your steadfast devotion to Me and Me alone – is of the utmost importance to Me. I AM the Lord your God. I will not share you with another. 

To one who loves Me this fierce possession feels like the most ardent embrace. It is not burdensome or overwhelming. In the same way a husband demands purity and constancy from his wife, and a wife who adores her husband freely gives this burdenless commitment, so those who are passionate about Me will not hesitate to remain steadfast and singleminded in their love for Me. It is their joy to give so priceless a gift to One whom they adore. 

But to those who claim devotion but who are burdened by My just claim to their heart, they must reevaluate to see if they truly have given it to Me. As I have said, I wish that you were hot or cold, but the lukewarm I will spew out of My mouth. So check your heart, beloved. Choose one side or the other. And if you’ve chosen Mine, embrace the fullness of My jealous love, for I AM El Qanna, the Jealous God. Continue reading “El Qanna (Jealous God)”

YHVH Rapha (the Lord your Healer)

Exodus 15:26 (VOICE) Eternal One:  If you will listen closely to My voice— the voice of your God—and do what is right in My eyes, pay attention to My instructions, and keep all of My laws; then I will not bring on you any of the plagues that I did on the Egyptians, for I am the Eternal, your Healer.

Beloved, I AM the Lord your healer – YHVH Rapha. Look to Me. Even as you walk in righteousness, keep your gaze fixed on Me – the One who created you and knows your form. Look to Me first. Look to Me. 

For I AM high and lifted up – exalted above the heavens, and more than able to do far above that which you can ask or think. So look to Me and know I AM God. 

Lead with a Life of Unashamed Worship

Exodus 15:20 (GW) Then the prophet Miriam, Aaron’s sister, took a tambourine in her hand. All the women, dancing with tambourines, followed her.

Beloved, where you lead, others will follow, so be intentional about the example you set. Steer others towards what is good and help them be their best selves by first doing the same. Lay a path for others to follow, then lead them straight to Me. 

Make your praises loud, and dance before your King. Live a life filled with praise to the One who is worthy, for such a life is one that is never wasted and always bears good fruit. So worship unashamed, beloved, and make Me the center of your world. 

Spirit of Understanding

Exodus 31:3 (AMP) I have filled him with the Spirit of God in wisdom and skill, in understanding and intelligence, in knowledge, and in all kinds of craftsmanship,

Beloved, I have gifted you not just with wisdom, but with an understanding of what to do with that wisdom. When I grant you insight, you understand what is to be done with it. When I gift you with an idea, you understand how to execute it. Acknowledge the source of that understanding, for it flows from Me alone.

Cherish the gift you have been given. Share it liberally with others in the Body. Simply because it comes easily to you does not mean it is of no value, it is a gift; therefore, recognize it as one. With reverence and honor flow in My Spirit of Understanding.

And, beloved, if you feel as though you lack understanding, ask Me for it. For you know I AM a generous God and I love to bless My children. So ask in faith and expectantly wait to receive.

Spirit of Wisdom

Exodus 31:3 (VOICE) I have filled him with God’s Spirit, gifted him with wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and skills with a variety of crafts.

Beloved, I have gifted you with ideas and insights that supersede natural ability. Walk in the fullness of what you have been given. Trust My Spirit of Wisdom to be upon you that you might know things you did not know and be gifted in ways you did not expect.

Expect the unexpected from Me, beloved, for I delight to see My Spirit at work in you. I will grant you a way of seeing things that is unique and I do so for My purpose. Magnify Me, beloved, with your words, actions, and deeds. What you do, do in excellence to honor Me.

Whatever craft I have laid your hands to, do it for my glory. Flow in My Spirit of Wisdom. Know the ideas that come from Me when they arrive, and execute them for My glory. Continue reading “Spirit of Wisdom”
