Rest in My Love

Genesis 28:15 (NIV) I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.

Beloved, you are never beyond My sight. For My eye is ever upon you, and My heart is ever toward you. You are My beloved one, and My promises for you are steadfast just as My heart is ever true. Rest in My love.

I know where I AM leading you. Have faith in My plans. Trust that each step is a necessary part of the greater plan I AM accomplishing in and through you. Be at peace as you rest in My love knowing My promises are yes and amen. Beloved, if I have said it, it is as good as done. Be at peace and trust in Me.

Burst Forth into Your Open Place

Psalm 18:19 (TPT) His love broke open the way and he brought me into a beautiful broad place. He rescued me—because his delight is in me!

Beloved, healing and restoration are found in Me. Allow My love to break the yokes of bondage, and be set free. Like a calf released from the stall and let out to pasture, burst forth into your open place (Malachi 4:2).

For your land of promise is before you, and I AM at your back. Spread wide your arms, beloved, and receive. For I delight in you. You are the apple of My eye. And My promises to you are steadfast and true. Continue reading “Burst Forth into Your Open Place”

Wait and Trust

Psalm 126:5 (VOICE) Those who walk the fields to sow, casting their seed in tears, will one day tread those same long rows, amazed by what’s appeared.

Beloved, though the days and nights of trial feel endless, stand fast and cling to hope. For in a time not too far off, you will stand amazed by the beauty that lies where the ashes once were. For I bring forth life from death, just as a seed – dry and dormant – is sown and brings forth fruit. 

So wait and trust. Resist the urge to battle and rage, and instead look to Me in the midst of your storm. Find My gaze and hold it. Just as keeping your eyes on the horizon calms sea sickness, so holding My gaze will steady you in the midst of turmoil. So cling to Me and the hope of who I AM. Trust and wait, beloved. Wait and trust.  Continue reading “Wait and Trust”

Dare to Believe

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! Your descendants will be as many as the stars. Abram believed God and trusted in His promises, so God counted it to his favor as righteousness.

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.

Peace in the Waiting

2 Peter 3:14 (TPT) So, my beloved friends, with all that you have to look forward to, may you be eager to be found living pure lives when you come into his presence, without blemish and filled with peace.

Beloved, with so much to look forward to, the temptation is great to be over eager as you wait for the coming promises. And yet, you know that My timing is perfect. And I would have you know peace – peace in the waiting. 

Resist the urge to think something is wrong if I haven’t brought my promises to pass and simply trust Me. Trust My timing. Trust I know best, and rest in Me. Refuse to lose the joy of the journey as you eagerly anticipate the next destination point. Instead, embrace each moment with joy as you know peace. 

Glorious Expectation

Psalm 18:30 (TPT) What a God you are! Your path for me has been perfect! All your promises have proven true. What a secure shelter for all those who turn to hide themselves in you! You are the wrap-around God giving grace to me.

Beloved, rest in My promises. You have only to yield to receive the fullness of them. Keep your eyes on Me and walk in humble obedience trusting that My hand will bring it all to pass. 

Stay hidden in Me. I AM your rock and shelter, and I AM wholly faithful and true. Trust in Me and trust in My word, for, beloved, it shall never return void. Lo, it will always come to pass. So wait in glorious expectation for My promises to be made manifest. 

I AM Good to My Word

Habakkuk 2:3 (KJV) For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak and not lie. Though it tarry, wait for it, because it will surely come; it will not tarry.

Beloved, resist the urge to be frustrated when promises seem to be delayed, for you know that I AM good to My word and I will bring all that I have promised to pass. I watch over My word to perform it. 

So allow such moments of seeming holdup to stretch your faith, and yield to My growing process. I do all things with purpose and intention, and I AM using all things for good. So embrace the trials of waiting with joy knowing My hand is at work. 

Hold On – I AM is Coming

Revelation 1:8 (AMP)  “I am the Alpha and the Omega [the Beginning and the End],” says the Lord God, “Who is [existing forever] and Who was [continually existing in the past] and Who is to come, the Almighty [the Omnipotent, the Ruler of all].”

Beloved, be expectant. I AM coming. Yes, you see darkness all around you, but I have placed in you My light for all to see. So shine and shine brightly. Be a beacon reminding all of the joyous promise of My coming. 

Do not despair for the world around you, rather focus on bringing truth and shining brightly into every corner that all may see and know: hold on – I AM is coming. 

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”

Rainbow Covenant

Psalm 45:13 (TPT) As the princess bride enters the palace, how glorious she appears within the holy chamber, robed with a wedding dress embroidered with pure gold!

Beloved, I’m adorning you in My rainbow of promises that you might never forget the covenant that lies between us. I AM good and I AM faithful. You are Mine just as I AM yours. Refuse to tarnish or sully the beauty of what we have. 

Just as you expect fidelity from an earthly spouse, so I expect it from you. Just as you hope for affection and attention to be lavished from an earthly spouse, so I hope for it from you. And just as you pray for deep, abiding, sacrificial love from an earthly spouse, so, beloved, am I looking for that from you. Just as I give all these things to you.
