Elohim Yachal (God of Hope)

Psalm 138:8 (VOICE) The Eternal will finish what He started in me. Your faithful love, O Eternal One, lasts forever; do not give up on what Your hands have made.

Beloved, I rejoice in My creation. I love the works of My hands. I AM intimately acquainted with your makeup, and nothing concerning you is hidden from Me. And I love you. I love you with an everlasting love that is unchanging.

Resist the urge to doubt My love, or your worth to receive it. Instead simply accept its steadfastness, and know that nothing can cause Me to give up on you. I will finish the good work I have begun in you, so refuse to give up on yourself or to struggle with hopelessness.

For I AM the God of hope, Elohim Yachal, and I AM most able to do all that I have set out and promised to do. Rest in faith. Rest in hope. And believe.

Choose to Pause (Selah)

Psalm 46:10 (VOICE) “Be still, be calm, see, and understand I am the True God. I am honored among all the nations. I am honored over all the earth.”

Beloved, be still. Choose to pause. Selah. Rest in My presence. Give yourself time to process, time to listen, time to reflect. I AM with you. If you wait on Me, I will meet you in the stillness. 

Breathe in. Breathe out. Remember My Spirit is breath and I gave you life. Feel Me with you as you receive that life-giving ruach (breath/wind/Spirit). I AM with you. I sustain your life. I AM the true God.

Be calm. Surrender any fear, anxiety, or worry. Breathe in My peace. Breathe out and release your cares. Cast them on Me, and trust yourself in My hands. For I AM honored among the nations and worthy of all praise. I AM God.

My Kingdom is Based on Sowing and Reaping

Psalm 127:2 (VOICE) God provides for His own. It is pointless to get up early, work hard, and go to bed late Anxiously laboring for food to eat; for God provides for those He loves, even while they are sleeping.

Beloved, cease any urge to strive, and rest in My love. I AM a good Father, and I love My children. Resting and yielding in Me and to My plans is the path for blessing. I provide for My own, even in ways that seem unexpected and in moments it may even feel “undeserved.”

My Kingdom is based on sowing and reaping, so resist the urge to be enslaved to the world’s system where you enslave and prostitute yourself to receive payback. Instead give of yourself, and do so freely and with joy where I direct you. As you sow, you shall surely reap.

Rest in Joy

Romans 12:12 (VOICE) Do not forget to rejoice, for hope is always just around the corner. Hold up through the hard times that are coming, and devote yourselves to prayer.

So choose to rest in joy even as you persist in prayer – trusting Me to move rightly, for I AM good. Your concerns are important to Me and never out of My thoughts.

Those Who Know Me Rest Secure

My Dominion is Everlasting

Psalm 145:13 (VOICE) Your kingdom will never end; Your rule will endure forever. [You are faithful to Your promise, and Your acts are marked with grace.]

Beloved, My dominion is everlasting. My sovereignty knows no end. There is no promise I will be unable to fulfill or whose outcome is beyond My reach. Rest in My hands. Trust your heart and hopes and dreams to Me.

Will I ignore the pleas of My children? Am I a bad father who neglects those he is called to cover and protect? Surely not! I AM slow to anger and rich in mercy, and I keep My promises from generation to generation. Trust yourself in My hands.

Those Who Trust Me Will Not Be Put to Shame

Those who trust in Me will not be put to shame, for I cover them with My blessings and walk with them through each trial. The presence of hardships in your life does not mean I’m not faithful, for character and faith are built in those moments. But know I AM with you – sustaining you through your darkest hours, and I promise joy comes in the morning. So trust in Me. 

Quiet Yourself and Listen

Psalm 27:4 (TPT) Here’s the one thing I crave from God, the one thing I seek above all else: I want the privilege of living with him every moment in his house, finding the sweet loveliness of his face, filled with awe, delighting in his glory and grace. I want to live my life so close to him that he takes pleasure in my every prayer.

Beloved, in the beauty of our intimacy I cherish all you share with Me even as you are called to revere all I share with you. When you love and respect someone, you value their thoughts and dreams, requests and petitions. So I take great pleasure in yours. 

There’s no need to guard your heart from Me, beloved, for your heart is safe in My hands. I love you, and what matters to you, matters to Me. Can you say the same? Be sure to take the time to sit, quiet yourself, and listen. Resist the urge to rush Me to speak. Wait upon Me, and delight in My glory and grace as you gaze upon the beauty of My face. 

Yield Yourself to Me

Psalm 95:6 (TPT) Come and kneel before this Creator-God; come and bow before the mighty God, our majestic maker!

Beloved, joyously take your place at My feet. To humble oneself is not to be humiliated, it is simply a point of surrender. It is you laying down your burdens and allowing Me to pick them up.

Find your rest, beloved, at My feet. Feel My touch upon your head as I cover you with My love. Like a precious ointment upon My feet, so you pour your heart out before Me. The sweet aroma of your offering is incredibly pleasing to Me.

You honor Me as you choose to yield. You magnify Me in your heart and on the earth – giving Me the honor due My name. Blessed are you as you yield yourself to Me.
