Revelation 4:10-11 (AMP) the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne, and they worship Him who lives forever and ever; and they throw down their crowns before the throne, saying, “Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they exist, and were created and brought into being.”
Beloved, what will you do with the honors given you? What will you do with the blessings I put into your hands? Will you use them to build your own kingdom? Or will you willingly and joyously choose to lay them at My feet.
Beloved, cast your crown before Me. Choose Me as the most valuable and precious gift of all. Find Me worthy and spend your life yielded and poured out before Me. For I AM faithful and true, worthy and steadfast – I AM the loving, righteous God. Worship Me. Continue reading “Cast Your Crown”
1 Corinthians 12:25 (KJV) That there should be no schism in the body; but [that] the members should have the same care one for another.
Care for your Body, beloved. Whether you realize it or not, when one of you hurts, the whole is effected. Pause to minister. Pause to tend. Give help where help is needed. You are to be known by your love, and you are called to love like Me.
Be intentional to give grace. Be intentional to operate with patience. Be intentional to reject offense. Walk in love. Walk in unity. Walk in peace. Cultivate that which is good. Care for and strengthen the Body, for it is your Body, beloved, and well worth the effort. Continue reading “Care for Your Body”
Numbers 20:12 (AMP) But the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you have not believed (trusted) Me, to treat Me as holy in the sight of the sons of Israel, you therefore shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.”
Beloved, it is not enough to say you trust Me. When you insist you understand each thing I ask of you, you demonstrate your lack of trust. When you do things how we’ve done before rather than how I’ve instructed for this time, you show a lack of trust. And when you cherry pick which of My instructions you will adhere to, you communicate loudly that you trust yourself more and place your own judgment above My own. Conditional trust is not trust.
Beloved, check your actions to be certain they align with what you desire to communicate. Because habitually choosing your own judgment over Mine not only tells Me you don’t trust Me (as well as communicating that clearly to those around you), but it also demonstrates that you do not love Me as you say you do. Love trusts. Love obeys. Love listens.
So be mindful what you’re actions are communicating, be certain they align with what you’re hoping to express. And in the moments they fall short, repent and adjust your behavior accordingly. Give true love to Me remembering I first loved you. Continue reading “Be Mindful What Your Actions Communicate”
Genesis 37:5 (VOICE) One day Joseph had a dream. When he told the dream to his brothers, they hated him even more.
Beloved, refuse to mock or belittle the dreams of others. Simply because you can catch their vision doesn’t make it ridiculous or beyond possibility. In the same way you wouldn’t want to have someone judge or crush your dreams, refuse to be the one who does that to someone else. Time will show whether it is a God-given desire or simply a soulful hope.
But regardless of which it may be, Hold the dreams with respect knowing it is a beautiful thing for someone to dream with Me for I AM a big God, the author of the impossible – a miracle-working God. You never want to find yourself in opposition to My thought and plans simply because you didn’t understand them or they offended your sensibilities. Always encourage dreaming with Me.
