Psalm 138:3 (VOICE) On the day I needed You, I called, and You responded and infused my soul with strength.
Beloved, close your eyes and feel the breath of My Spirit across your face. My life, which brings liberty, invigorating you and bringing refreshing. Breathe it in, beloved. Receive – by faith receive.
Just as you need air to sustain your very life, My Spirit is necessary for you to live and move and have your being. Refuse to function outside of My flow. Resist the urge to struggle against Me. Beloved, this is the essence of faith. Yield, and flow in My Spirit of life.
Psalm 138:7 (VOICE) Whenever I walk into trouble, You are there to bring me out. You hold out Your hand to protect me against the wrath of my enemies, and hold me safely in Your right hand.
Beloved, as you follow the road of life, trust that I know what is behind each bend and beyond each corner. For I know the beginning from the end, and the whole of the journey in between. So trust Me to lead.
Just as you trust implicitly in a map or GPS if you are traveling in an unknown area, so you should have that same unreserved faith in Me. Have enough faith to rely even when you do not know or understand where you are headed. Trust that I will not lead you astray.
And rather than spend the journey fretting about what is to come, focus on enjoying the ride. Relax as you allow Me to lead, and remember to enjoy the sights and sounds along the way.
Jeremiah 1:10 (VOICE) This very day I appointed you to speak with My authority over nations and kingdoms. Your word — My word — will have the power to uproot and stamp out; it will destroy and upend. And then your word—My word— will rebuild and plant anew.
Beloved, refuse to underestimate the power of the words you speak. For I AM the one who has filled your mouth, so your power and authority comes from Me. Truly your tongue holds the power of life and death, so wield that authority wisely.
Speak with expectancy, and have faith in the Power behind your words. For I AM Elohim Yakol – God Most Able, and nothing is too hard for Me. So expect Me to move. Expect the manifestation of My power. Expect the fullness of My glory. Speak in faith, beloved, and then wait to see Me move. Continue reading “Speak in Faith”
Romans 1:20 (NLT) For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.
Beloved, shout your hallelujah! Refuse to silence your praise. For I AM worthy, and I AM high and lifted up – the exalted One – all glory belongs to Me. My fingerprints across creation declare the truth of who I AM. See Me.
You may not see the air you breathe though it sustains your life, and yet with total faith you accept its presence and the truth of its existence. In the same way, see My handiwork and allow it to point to Me. For I AM, and I AM good.
Mark 16:20 (VOICE) The disciples went out proclaiming the good news; and the risen Lord continued working through them, confirming every word they spoke with the signs He performed through them.]
Beloved, expect manifestations of My power. For what is the point of praying for the miraculous if you aren’t fully persuaded that the One you beseech is more than able to do “abundantly above all you could ask or think”? Choose to know Me, and choose to believe.
Walk in the full authority and power of the One who has sent you: Me. You are the emissaries of heaven. Yielded and willing vessels – created to usher the supernatural into the natural realm because you know who I AM and you believe. So stand and speak in faith, and watch Me move.
Colossians 4:6 (VOICE) When you speak the word, speak it gracefully (as if seasoned with salt), so you will know how to respond to everyone rightly.
Beloved, as you live your faith, let your life speak for itself. Resist the urge to “help” Me further the Kingdom by acting “on My behalf” without the unction of My Spirit. Passion for Me is vital, but passion alone isn’t enough. Cultivate wisdom, discernment, and understanding.
Then use that character to temper your zeal. A sawed off shot gun and a sniper rifle both have power, but only one is harnessed and has singular accuracy, which is power under control. So lay down your own agenda, yield to My leading, and allow My Spirit to guard your tongue, in doing so you become a powerful force for Me.
Revelation 4:1 (TPT) Then suddenly, after I wrote down these messages, I saw a heavenly portal open before me, and the same trumpet-voice I heard speaking with me at the beginning broke the silence and said, “Ascend into this realm! I want to reveal to you what must happen after this.”
Beloved, come up higher. I have granted you access into the heavenly realms that you might see. Open your eyes and step over the threshold into the fullness of what I have made available to you. Refuse to allow anything to hold you back – not doubt or fear or unbelief.
Step forward, beloved, and come up higher. Ascend into higher realms, for the glory that will be revealed is magnificent and life changing, but it requires you to move. It requires you to see. So take My hand and step forward in faith with your spiritual eyes alert and ready as we move into the things of My Kingdom.
Revelation 4:1 (ESV) After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.”
Revelation 12:11 (TPT) They conquered him completely through the blood of the Lamb and the powerful word of his testimony. They triumphed because they did not love and cling to their own lives, even when faced with death.
Walk in victory, beloved, for the Lamb has overcome. Live your faith boldly. Let your actions speak loudly your faith in your King. Hold nothing more dearly than your trust in Me – not life or death – for the grave does not reign supreme, I do.
This place of bold assurance is where true power comes from. A heart that stands secure will know peace, for it knows nothing can threaten that which truly matters because victory is assured. Beloved, your eternity is in Me, and nothing can steal it away. So walk boldly in that power and the authority you have in Me, and move mightily on behalf of the Kingdom and My righteousness.
Genesis 15:5-6 (VOICE) God took him outside to show him something. Eternal One: Look up at the stars, and try to count them all if you can. There are too many to count! Your descendants will be as many as the stars. Abram believed God and trusted in His promises, so God counted it to his favor as righteousness.
Beloved, trust the One who has promised because I AM faithful. My promises are God-sized and require faith. You may ask yourself if you are crazy to believe, but I AM the God of the impossible because with Me all things are possible.
So dare to believe what I say. And even when the waiting seems long or the fulfillment doesn’t look like you expected, trust with an open heart. I see things differently than you do, for My perspective is eternal. Shift your perspective to Mine rather than trying to draw Me to yours. Dare to believe.
Romans 10:10 (VOICE) Belief begins in the heart and leads to a life that’s right with God; confession departs from our lips and brings eternal salvation.
Beloved, look deep in your heart and find My presence there. I AM always with you, and happy to guide you. You have only to seek, only to ask. I AM here. Believe in Me. Put your trust in Me.
Regardless of what the world says, determine what you will say. What will the confession of your faith be? Will your words and your walk bring credence to your confession of faith? Or will they belie it? Beloved, believe in Me. Then walk and speak as one who does. Continue reading “Believe in Me”
