Live Unashamed

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.

Colossians 3:1-3 (VOICE) So it comes down to this: since you have been raised with the Anointed One, the Liberating King, set your mind on heaven above. The Anointed is there, seated at God’s right hand. Stay focused on what’s above, not on earthly things, because your old life is dead and gone. Your new life is now hidden, enmeshed with the Anointed who is in God.

The River of God is for You

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.

Be Set Aflame

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”

Be Holy as I AM Holy

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”

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.

Love and Holiness, the Foundation of Your Passion

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.

Reflect Me

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”

Holy and Set Apart

Malachi 2:6 (TLB) He passed on to the people all the truth he got from me. He did not lie or cheat; he walked with me, living a good and righteous life, and turned many from their lives of sin.

Beloved, I pour in that you might pour out. You are a conduit not a reservoir. You are set apart with an intentional call and purpose. Walk in it. Release that which I have deposited in you. 

Walk in truth and righteousness, beloved. You have no idea the impact your simple obedience has in heaven and on earth. It is atmosphere changing. Walk with Me – holy and set apart. 

Weighty Covenant

Revelation 4:11 (VOICE) Worthy are You, O Lord; worthy are You, O God, to receive glory and honor and power. You alone created all things, and through Your will and by Your design, they exist and were created.

Beloved, stand in awe. Pause and take in Who I AM and the glory and honor due My name. I AM Creator and I AM the Lord God Almighty – sovereign and holy, everlasting and eternal. I AM.

And I have chosen you. I have made a covenant with you. I AM your God and you are My people. I have taken the weight of this agreement on Myself. Be certain to treat it, and Me, with the sobriety of mind and heart that is deserved. Give honor even as I honor you. Continue reading “Weighty Covenant”

Key to the Kingdom: Be Holy

Psalm 141:4 (VOICE) Don’t allow my deepest desires to steer me toward doing what is wrong or associating with wicked people Or joining in their wicked works or tasting any of their pleasures.

Beloved, be holy as I AM holy. Choose what is right and refuse to flirt with the line between what is right and wrong. Pursue righteousness. Set yourself up for success – flee from temptation and give it no place.

Fix your gaze on Me to understand the fullness of holiness, and then be like Me – for you are made in My image and called to shine brightly. Reflect Me. Reflect My character. Light the world with your holy blaze.
