Psalm 24:3-4 (TPT) Who, then, ascends into the presence of the Lord? And who has the privilege of entering into God’s Holy Place? Those who are clean—whose works and ways are pure, whose hearts are true and sealed by the truth, those who never deceive, whose words are sure.
Beloved, entering into deep fellowship with Me is something available to all. It simply requires a choice. Choosing Me. Choosing purity over that which would create separation. Choosing truth over lies that would draw you away. Choosing pursuit of Me over distractions. No one – not even Me, likes to be marginalized and given the dregs of time. True intimacy is cultivated, not demanded.
I AM not one to be manipulated or controlled. I do not appreciate demands to deliver a specific outcome as if i were a genie in a bottle. I AM God. Yield, beloved. Choose Me, and then yield. That is when you begin to receive the overwhelming blessings of revelation and intimacy that I have for you. So make the decision, make Me a priority, and choose Me. Continue reading “Choose Me”
Psalm 99:9 (ASV) Exalt ye Jehovah our God, And worship at his holy hill; For Jehovah our God is holy.
Beloved, I AM Kadosh Elohim – the holy God. And just as I AM holy, I call you to walk in holiness. Choose to be set apart – consecrated to Me. Choose to live differently, not as the world at large lives, but rather with the intention of yielding to a higher plan.
Being holy comes at a cost. It means being different, and often misunderstood. In moments when being set apart causes discomfort and strain, remember that in being holy you are choosing to align with Me and with My Kingdom. So be blessed as you walk in holiness.
Psalms 103:12 (AMP) As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
Beloved, when you repent, I forgive. It is as simple and beautiful as that. I understand the holy sorrow you feel at having fallen short of the mark, but resist the urge to try to remind Me of your transgressions over and over again. Truly, once I have forgiven you, it is not a part of how I see you.
If a three year old child spills their milk, does the parent expect them to still be apologizing at age 10? At 20? Of course not. The parent has moved on, and no longer holds that to the child’s account. In the same way, when you repent, I move on with you. There is no benefit in bringing it up repeatedly (in fact there is much harm) even if your purpose in doing so is to apologize. So beloved, no longer think of the former things, but rather keep your eyes ahead and embrace the beauty that is to come.
Colossians 3:3 (VOICE) because your old life is dead and gone. Your new life is now hidden, enmeshed with the Anointed who is in God.
Beloved, resist the urge to waste time looking back. Your time is better spent with your whole heart focused unwaveringly on the things above – the things of heaven and on Me. As you fill your eyes with the things of Me, there is no room for fear and unrighteousness to sneak in. So keep your heart steady and stay fixed on Me.
Remember, beloved, you are now able to live unashamed. For no dirt can mar what the blood of Jesus has made clean. So embrace your freedom from that which sought to hold you down, and instead walk in the fullness of your Liberating King. Continue reading “Live Unashamed”
Revelation 22:1 (TPT) Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, flowing with water clear as crystal, continuously pouring out from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
Beloved, My flow is pure. No pollution or debris mar these waters. No sin or unrighteous judgment taint the joyous love flowing from My heart, or the refreshing waters from My throne. So receive, and drink deeply that you might be quenched and renewed.
For I AM the fountain of life, and those who drink of Me will be satisfied. My life sustains. My water restores. In Me all things are made new. So look to My throne, and trust in the Lamb. The river of God is for you.

Song of Songs 8:6-7 (TPT) …Place this fierce, unrelenting fire over your entire being. Rivers of pain and persecution will never extinguish this flame. Endless floods will be unable to quench this raging fire that burns within you…
Beloved, allow My holy fire to overtake you. For as you walk through My refining, My zealous passion is deposited within you and you are set aflame. That fire burns bright and true, for you are holy and set apart for Me.
Be set aflame. Welcome My holy fire, and embrace the trials that refine you. Be holy as I AM holy. Let your life be a living testament to the Jealous God who loves you. For truly you are My beloved one, and your unquenchable passion to be further and further refined glorifies Me. Continue reading “Be Set Aflame”
1 Peter 2:9 (VOICE) But you are a chosen people, set aside to be a royal order of priests, a holy nation, God’s own…
Beloved, I picked you, and I called you My own. You’ve been set apart for My good purpose. Refuse to resent the space between you and those steeped in the world, for if you were united with them you wouldn’t be set apart for Me.
Be holy as I AM holy. Resist the urge to compromise what I’ve called you to. If you want to be part of building My Kingdom, you must yield to My plans. So embrace your set-apartedness, and be ready for more of Me. Continue reading “Be Holy as I AM Holy”
Romans 6:1-2 (NLT) Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it?
Beloved, returning to sin makes about as much sense as rolling in dog excrement right after bathing. When you gave your life to Me, you chose a clean life. That choice declared future intentions. Would you then go back on your word as though it were nothing simply because you know that I love you enough to forgive you again?
Just as a good parent will continue to love their child regardless of their behavior, so I will always love you – even though that love comes at a cost. But I also know the consequences to your choices and want better for you. So make wise choices, beloved. Be steadfast in your desire to walk in righteousness – be holy as I AM holy.
Daniel 3:17-18 (VOICE) If you throw us into the blazing furnace, then the God we serve is able to rescue us from a furnace of blazing fire and release us from your power, Your Majesty. But even if He does not, O king, you can be sure that we still will not serve your gods and we will not worship the golden statue you erected.
Beloved, refuse to compromise your faith. You know who I AM, so be steadfast in your belief – never wavering, but rather holding tightly to that which you know to be truth. For My Word has instructed you in truth. It is not subjective, but steadfast.
I AM love. But I AM also holy. True love clings to that which is good with steadfast devotion. So be holy as I AM holy, and walk in love because I AM love. Let these be the foundation of your passion: love and holiness. For zeal birthed from that place is a force to be reckoned with and a powerful tool for good.
John 5:19 (TPT) So Jesus said, “I speak to you timeless truth. The Son is not able to do anything from himself or through my own initiative. I only do the works that I see the Father doing, for the Son does the same works as his Father.
Beloved, I lead by example. I AM long-suffering and rich in mercy. Therefore, you should be long-suffering and rich in mercy. My love is unconditional. Therefore, you should love unconditionally. I AM righteous and holy. Therefore, you should strive to be righteous and holy.
I ask nothing of you that I have not walked out Myself. Therefore, reflect Me with joy and trust Me to guide your path. I will whisper to you “this is the way, walk ye in it,” and you will respond without delay. Hold nothing back, and reflect Me. Continue reading “Reflect Me”
