Calibrate Your Behavior to Align with My Word

Proverbs 1:10 (VOICE) My son, should your less honorable peers pressure you to do what is wrong, you should be strong enough not to go along.

Beloved, refuse to be pressured into bad or questionable behavior by those around you. Calibrate your behavior to align with My Word. I AM your true north – your guiding star, so look to Me for direction and refuse to be knocked off course.

Rather than succumbing to pressure, be a standard setter yourself. Quietly lead by example that others might see what it looks like to live in a way that honors Me. Trust Me to strengthen you. Focus on being a God-pleaser instead of a pleaser of men. For in the end, I AM the One who matters, so look to Me.

Let Me Guide You in Truth

Proverbs 3:5 (TPT) Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make.

Beloved, trust My perspective, for I see all and I see rightly. So when I call you beautiful, it is truth. And when I call you loved, it is fact. Refuse to allow the lies that have been reflected to you or your own insecurities to mar your perspective.

Trust that I see you in truth. Trust that I know you, and know that I find you worth knowing. With all your heart, let Me guide you to see the truth of who you are. And then choose to believe, for in doing so you acknowledge Me as being trustworthy. And remember, beloved, in not doing so, you do the reverse.

Refuse to Be a Fool

Proverbs 18:21 (TPT) Your words are so powerful that they will kill or give life, and the talkative person will reap the consequences.

Beloved, use your words to reflect My heart. Resist the urge to indulge your pride, and instead choose to walk in loving humility – be long suffering and extend much grace. For there have been moments you yourself needed patience and grace, and they will come again, so sow that you might reap.

I bring life, and life more abundant, and I desire that you choose to be like Me. So be circumspect, and count the cost before you speak – refuse to be a fool and vent every feeling. Instead, share your heart with Me, and allow My Spirit to lead you through, for I will not lead you astray.

Matthew 12:36 (CSB) “I tell you that on the day of judgment people will have to account for every careless word they speak.

Proverbs 29:11 (NKJV) A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise [man] holds them back.

Weigh Each Word

Psalm 141:3 (ESV) Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!

Beloved, listen to My Spirit’s direction over the words that you speak. Stay sensitive to My leading. For your words have more power than you begin to understand, and they must be treated with care.

Refuse to allow your mouth to be a vessel of death – for the power of life and death is in your tongue. So choose carefully, beloved. Choose life. Therefore, weigh each word to determine the fruit that it will bear – refusing to indulge your flesh, instead choosing life and the fruits of My Spirit.

Proverbs 18:21 (NIV) The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

Flow in Every Aspect of My Holy Spirit

Proverbs 24:3-4 (VOICE) Wisdom is required to build a house; understanding is necessary to make it secure. Knowledge is needed to furnish all the rooms and fill them with beautiful treasures.

Beloved, wisdom is wonderful, but alone it is not enough. Understanding is needed to know how to use the wisdom you’ve been given. Resist the urge to pridefully presume you know what is best simply because I have given you enlightenment. Seek Me for guidance on what to do with what you’ve been given.

For just as I invite you to flow in My Holy Spirit’s Wisdom, so I invite you to flow in a Spirit of Understanding. In the same way the body (both natural and the Body of Christ) needs all its parts to function, so you should seek to flow in every aspect of My Holy Spirit to operate in the fullness of what you’re capable of in My power.

Speak in Faith

Jeremiah 1:10 (VOICE) This very day I appointed you to speak with My authority over nations and kingdoms. Your word — My word — will have the power to uproot and stamp out; it will destroy and upend. And then your word—My word— will rebuild and plant anew.

Beloved, refuse to underestimate the power of the words you speak. For I AM the one who has filled your mouth, so your power and authority comes from Me. Truly your tongue holds the power of life and death, so wield that authority wisely.

Speak with expectancy, and have faith in the Power behind your words. For I AM Elohim Yakol – God Most Able, and nothing is too hard for Me. So expect Me to move. Expect the manifestation of My power. Expect the fullness of My glory. Speak in faith, beloved, and then wait to see Me move.

Proverbs 18:21 (NIV) The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

Isaiah 22:22 (NIV) I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.

Thrive Together in Love

Proverbs 24:6 (VOICE) For with wise guidance, you can wage a successful war, and with a council of many advisors, you will be victorious!

Beloved, seek godly counsel. Surround yourself with those who strive to be in right relationship with Me. For as each of you seek to walk uprightly, you will challenge one another to new levels of integrity and faith. Such relationships inherently strengthen one another.

So cultivate your divine connections, and bear with one another in love through every season. Then rest on those relationships to bring wisdom and confirmation when the days of trials come. Their voices – echoing Mine – will bring comfort and strength when it is most needed. Thrive together in love.

Ask and Ask Often

Proverbs 24:5 (VOICE) A wise man possesses great strength, and an intelligent man knows how to increase it;

Beloved, exercise wisdom with what you’ve been given that I may entrust you with more. If I have given you insight, use that insight carefully and for the good of the Kingdom. If I have given you a position of authority, operate in humility and strength, and in a way that brings Me honor.

Whatever you have been given is an opportunity to demonstrate trustworthiness. So be a wise steward, and always remember I delight to give wisdom to those who ask. So ask, beloved, and ask often, so that you might make the most of what you’ve been given and reap the greatest heavenly reward.

Love is a Powerful Weapon

Proverbs 15:1 (TPT) Respond gently when you are confronted and you’ll defuse the rage of another. Responding with sharp, cutting words will only make it worse. Don’t you know that being angry can ruin the testimony of even the wisest of men?

Beloved, love is a powerful weapon. Just as a gentle flow of steady water can change the face of stone, so love has the power to change even the hardest of hearts. So love well, and do so without reserve. 

For you have been well equipped. I pour out My love over you – demonstrating My unconditional, limitless love for you each day. As you allow yourself to be saturated in My love, you are equipping yourself to pour it back out as you love others.

Give your love as an offering to Me. Resist the urge to love to gain an earthly response, but rather do it to My glory. Because I AM love. Therefore operating in love means you are flowing in Me. So love well. Love always. Love like Me.

Leave a Legacy of Love

Proverbs 10:12 (NLT) Hatred stirs up quarrels, but love makes up for all offenses.

Beloved, choosing to love instead of taking offense is always the right decision. There will always be misunderstandings or people acting from a place of hurt, but how you respond speaks to your character. And as you choose to love, you clearly reflect Me and My heart. 

In extending the grace you yourself want to receive, you’re leading by example. And being known for being gracious and loving is a testament of one who knows Me. And beloved, know that you’re leaving a legacy of love that will reach farther and last longer than you can begin to imagine. Continue reading “Leave a Legacy of Love”
