You are My Delight

Psalm 84:1 (TPT) God of Heaven’s Armies, you find so much beauty in your people! They’re like lovely sanctuaries of your presence.

Beloved, I AM the God of heavenly armies, the Lord of Hosts – YHVH Tsaba is My name. I rule and reign in power, and yet with everything at My fingertips, I take delight in My children. I make My sanctuary in their very hearts.

When you choose Me, all that I AM dwells within you. Think not that you are weak or powerless in the face of adversity, beloved. It matters not your personal ability to change things around you, for you know Me. I AM the power. I AM the source. And you are My delight, so rest in Me.

Psalm 84:1-12 (TPT) God of Heaven’s Armies, you find so much beauty in your people! They’re like lovely sanctuaries of your presence. Deep within me are these lovesick longings, desires and daydreams of living in union with you. When I’m near you my heart and my soul will sing and worship with my joyful songs of you, my true source and spring of life! O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, my King and my God, even the sparrows and swallows are welcome to build a nest among your altars for the birds to raise their young. What pleasure fills those who live every day in your temple, enjoying you as they worship in your presence! Pause in his presence How enriched are they who find their strength in the Lord; within their hearts are the highways of holiness! Even when their paths wind through the dark valley of tears, they dig deep to find a pleasant pool where others find only pain. He gives to them a brook of blessing filled from the rain of an outpouring. They grow stronger and stronger with every step forward, and the God of all gods will appear before them in Zion. Hear my cry, O God of Heaven’s Armies! God of Jacob, listen to my loving prayer. Pause in his presence God, your wrap-around presence is our defense. In your kindness look upon the faces of your anointed ones. For just one day of intimacy with you is like a thousand days of joy rolled into one! I’d rather stand at the threshold in front of the Gate Beautiful, ready to go in and worship my God, than to live my life without you in the most beautiful palace of the wicked. For the Lord God is brighter than the brilliance of a sunrise! Wrapping himself around me like a shield, he is so generous with his gifts of grace and glory. Those who walk along his paths with integrity will never lack one thing they need, for he provides it all! O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, what euphoria fills those who forever trust in you!

YHVH M’kadesh (the Lord Who Sanctifies)

Beloved, no sin is so great that the blood of Jesus cannot atone for it. Receive and be made new. Resist the urge to try to hold tight to baggage that has seemed to define you in times past. Release it and walk in the new I have for you.

For I AM Elohim Rachum – the merciful God who loves you and has provided a means of achieving freedom.

Expect Me to Bring Increase

1 Kings 18:45-46 (VOICE) The sky became filled with dark monstrous clouds, the wind grew wild, the heavy rain fell, and Ahab traveled quickly in his chariot to Jezreel.

Beloved, often when I bring increase it comes swiftly and unexpectedly. Though the vision may seem to tarry, it tarries not, for I will bring it to its fullness in due season. So be prepared to wait patiently but expectantly just to see Me move suddenly.

I AM the Lord of the breakthrough – YHVH Perazim. Watch and wait in hopeful expectation, as you rejoice in what I’ve already done.

Proverbs 3:34 (TLB) The Lord mocks at mockers, but helps the humble.

Be Bathed in My Peace

Numbers 6:26 (AMP) The Lord… give you peace [a tranquil heart and life].’
