Proverbs 24:5 (VOICE) A wise man possesses great strength, and an intelligent man knows how to increase it;
Beloved, exercise wisdom with what you’ve been given that I may entrust you with more. If I have given you insight, use that insight carefully and for the good of the Kingdom. If I have given you a position of authority, operate in humility and strength, and in a way that brings Me honor.
Whatever you have been given is an opportunity to demonstrate trustworthiness. So be a wise steward, and always remember I delight to give wisdom to those who ask. So ask, beloved, and ask often, so that you might make the most of what you’ve been given and reap the greatest heavenly reward.
Psalm 62:2 (TPT) He alone is my safe place; his wrap-around presence always protects me. For he is my champion defender; there’s no risk of failure with God. So why would I let worry paralyze me, even when troubles multiply around me?
Beloved, refuse to let the worries and concerns of this present time bury you under a mountain of sadness and regret. You come to Me with a contrite heart, and I AM sovereign. So trust that I AM at work – bringing forth beauty from ashes is My specialty.
So unburden yourself of that which seeks to bring you low. Give it to Me. Then let Me envelope you in My presence that you might know you are never alone. I AM with you, and I AM for you. Regardless of those in your life who may come and go, and regardless of the praise or criticism of man – I AM always steadfast and I AM always true. I AM true to you.

I will never abandon or forsake you. I lavish you with My love. I hope for the best for you. I lead you in good paths – paths of righteousness and blessing. Follow Me. Trust Me. Yield to Me. Know Me and know that I AM good. Embrace My unfailing love, for it belongs to you.
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!

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.
Matthew 6:26 (VOICE) Look at the birds in the sky. They do not store food for winter. They don’t plant gardens. They do not sow or reap—and yet, they are always fed because your heavenly Father feeds them. And you are even more precious to Him than a beautiful bird. If He looks after them, of course He will look after you.
Beloved, My tender care is apparent for all to see, and you are precious to Me. I never miss a thing – I AM mindful of details – nothing is beneath My notice. Will you receive from Me? Extend your hand, beloved, and accept what I have for you – even if it isn’t what you expected or hoped for. Trust in Me and in My goodness.
My thoughts toward you are good thoughts, so while you may not understand My actions, you can rest in the knowledge I AM good. I AM faithful and unerringly careful with your heart. Trust it in My capable hands.

Give weight to that which has been learned, for every experience of life gives opportunity to grow in character. Do so wisely. Stay focused on Me. Mirror your behavior to Mine. Be full of grace and rich in mercy, slow to anger and not easily offended, and love deeply and without judgment. Trust Me to move in others’ lives even as I move in yours.

For I AM called faithful – I AM El Aman, the Faithful God. I AM YHVH Misgab, the Lord your Strong Tower and El Tsur, God your Strength. I AM your protection and your sustainer – your very present help in times of trial. So call upon My name, and trust Me to respond.
Amos 3:7 (VOICE) …The Eternal Lord does nothing Without revealing His plan to His servants, the prophets. They are His spokespeople.
Beloved, hear what I say. Find that quiet place within and make room to hear My voice. Resist the urge to be presumptuous, or to assume you know My intentions. Simply because I’ve operated one way in the past, doesn’t mean I will always do the same in future.
Be intentional. Look to Me. Abide with Me. Refuse to be influenced by words without My breath. Resist the urge to allow doubt or fear of man to sway the treasure I have deposited in you. Hold fast, and be obedient with what you’ve been given.
