Covered {Moments with God}

{My heart says} Lord, I yield. I lay myself bare. I look to You and wait. No one and nothing can satisfy like You. And only You can be trusted fully with my heart and all its battered pieces. So I wait on You, and I listen for Your instruction because I know You are good.

{I feel His breath as He begins to speak, so close He is to me} My beloved, worry not. I have placed My robe upon you – covered you with My cloak, for you are Mine. And I take care of My own, so trust Me to see to your needs whether material, spiritual, or emotional, for you are safe with Me. Rest in the shadow of My wing.

{My heart exhales a sigh of relief, for I can hear the truth coming from His lips. I know I am safe. I am loved. I am His. So I am at peace.}

Ruth 3:4 (NLT) Be sure to notice where he lies down; then go and uncover his feet and lie down there. He will tell you what to do.”

Worth the Wait

Proverbs 8:34 (VOICE) The one who listens to me, who carefully seeks me in everyday things and delays action until my way is apparent, that one will find true happiness.

Beloved, wait on Me. I desire to be heard even more than you desire to hear Me. If you take the time to listen, I will ensure that I AM heard. For I love to share with My children. I love when you curl up at my feet – that intimacy is so sweet to Me. So press in, for I AM here.

Wait on My instruction, and listen to My voice. That is the path of blessing, and I will happily show the way. Resist the urge to presume My thoughts or to rely on your own wisdom. Instead, be intentional to wait on Me, for I AM worth the wait.

I AM Always Listening

1 Thessalonians 5:17 (KJV) Pray without ceasing.

Beloved, stay in ongoing dialogue with Me – all day, every day. Lift each need you see before Me as we talk throughout the day. It doesn’t have to be long, simply be consistent and be constant. I AM always listening.

Remember that I AM the power. I don’t listen more carefully if your words happen to be more eloquent. I simply desire heartfelt, ongoing communication with you. So share what’s on your heart, and listen as I share what’s on Mine.

A Reflection of My Magnificent Glory

Isaiah 6:4 (AMP) And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, and the temple was filling with smoke.

Beloved, enter My holy place. Let the resonance of My voice move you – may it stir you to action. May you be changed in My presence. And may any outer protective layer you’ve created for yourself tremble and be shaken free. 

Be naked and unashamed, beloved. You’ve no need to hide yourself or try to shield yourself from Me. I AM the One true God and the Lover of your soul, so find your identity in Me. For you are a reflection of My magnificent glory, so be radiant without shame. 

Isaiah 6:1-3 (VOICE) In the same year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a grand throne way up high with a flowing cape that filled the whole temple. Bright flaming creatures waited on Him. Each had six wings: two covering its face, two covering its feet, and two for flying. Like some fiery choir, they would call back and forth continually. Flaming Creatures: Holy, holy, holy is the Eternal, the Commander of heavenly armies! The earth is filled with His glorious presence!

Be Vigilant

Matthew 26:41 (ASV) Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Beloved, stay alert. Keep your spiritual eyes open and attentive. Then allow My Spirit to move you based on what you’ve seen, that you might know how to pray. Resist the urge to rely on your natural senses, for they are limited and create bias. 

Instead be vigilant in the spirit – be open to what you’re “seeing” and sensing. Then pray. For, beloved, I have called you to a lifestyle of prayer. So be intentional to continually stay in communion with Me as you bring petitions before My throne.

Shame is Rooted in Fear

Genesis 3:7-8 (VOICE) Suddenly their eyes were opened to a reality previously unknown. For the first time, they sensed their vulnerability and rushed to hide their naked bodies, stitching fig leaves into crude loincloths. Then they heard the sound of the Eternal God walking in the cool misting shadows of the garden. The man and his wife took cover among the trees and hid from the Eternal God.

Beloved, shame is rooted in fear, but My perfect love casts out all fear. So draw near, and receive My love in full measure. Do so that you might know what it feels like to have the burden of shame removed. I never designed you to be weighted down by shame. 

Beloved, I long for you to walk in the fullness of your freedom – naked and unashamed – with no fear causing you to hide your face from Me. I desire fellowship with you. I know you, and I love you – in all your beautiful imperfection. I accept you as you are, and I call you My very own. So resist any temptation to allow fear and shame to take root, and instead allow My mercy, love, and grace to make you whole.

Expanding Reverential Awe

Psalms 96:4 (TPT) For the Lord’s greatness is beyond description and he deserves all the praise that comes to him. He is our King-God and it’s right to be in holy awe of him.

Beloved, though it is vital for you to know your identity in Me, don’t get stuck there. Resist the urge to keep your eyes on yourself. Rather keep your focus on Me and on who I AM. Stay in a place of humility. Allow your faith to enlarge as your reverential awe expands because you are learning to see Me as I AM. 

Blessings and beauty come from My hand, so look to Me. Wait on Me to move – and wait with joy. For simply knowing Me and having a relationship with Me is worthy of gratitude. I AM beyond description, and yet I make Myself known to you. From the outpouring of My love I nourish your heart. Embrace your expanding reverential awe as you come to know Me more, for I desire to be known by you.

Find Fellowship with Me

2 Corinthians 1:4 (VOICE) He consoles us as we endure the pain and hardship of life so that we may draw from His comfort and share it with others in their own struggles. 

Beloved, in the midst of pain, I AM still with you. No hardship will scare Me away. I will use each one to grow you and strengthen your character, if you will yield to Me. Draw comfort from Me. You are not alone.

And remember as you endure the sufferings, that I have endured them as well. And when you encounter betrayal, remember I have encountered it as well. And when you’re ridiculed, misjudged, and persecuted – remember, beloved, I have been too. So draw close to Me, and in the midst of trial, find fellowship with Me.

Turn Your Faith into the Currency of Prayer

Mark 11:24 (TPT) This is the reason I urge you to boldly believe for whatever you ask for in prayer—believe that you have received it and it will be yours.

Beloved, turn your faith into the currency of prayer. Ask, seek, and knock. The door will be opened to you. So align yourself with Me, and immerse yourself in Me. Meditate on My Word. Know My heart and trust Me to know yours. 

From that place of intimacy – in the beauty of being known, recognize that the more time you spend with Me, the more your desires align with Mine. And as you pray and petition, you begin reiterating My desires back to Me, and we work together as one – expanding My Kingdom.  Continue reading “Turn Your Faith into the Currency of Prayer”

Burn for Me without Restraint

Song of Solomon 8:6 (VOICE) Set me as a seal over your heart; wear me as an emblem on your arm For love is as strong as death, and jealousy is as relentless as the grave. Love flares up like a blazing fire, a very ardent flame.

Beloved, never will My hunger for you be quenched. There is nothing you can do or say to extinguish My devotion to you. Though earthly love may seem to be fickle or fade, Mine never will – it never does. I AM wholly steadfast, completely ardent, and totally head-over-heels in love with you.

So open your heart to Me – fully allow Me access. Resist the urge to hold back, and instead be consumed by your passion for Me and for the things of Me. Let your fire for Me burn so brightly that all who know you can’t help but see its glorious flames and be warmed by the depth of your affections. Beloved, burn for Me without restraint.
