Psalms 108:2 (TPT) Arise, my soul, and sing his praises! I will awaken the dawn with my worship, greeting the daybreak with my songs of light.
Beloved, arise and awaken! Greet the day with a heart full of joyous gratitude. Allow your thanksgiving to manifest, and bring forth praise. Release your sound and movement into the atmosphere. Shift the space around you. Welcome My glory in that place.
As you move through your day, carry that praise with you in your heart and reflected on your countenance. May all who encounter you see My presence alive and active in your life. Be a vessel of worship, beloved, and usher in heaven wherever you go.
Psalm 25:8 (VOICE) IMMENSELY good and honorable is the Eternal; that’s why He teaches sinners the way.
Beloved, I love My creation. My heart is that not one would be lost. I do not rejoice in the downfall of those who walk in sin, or congratulate Myself regarding the resultant curses they bring upon their own heads. Would a good parent rejoice in their child’s burns simply because their warnings proved true?
I love My creation. My hand is forever extended in hope that a lost or broken one will reach My way. And when they do, I grab on and refuse to let go. So yes, I AM kind and patient – rich in mercy. And yes, I extend grace and lead you in the paths of righteousness. I AM a good God, and a loving Father. Trust your heart with Me, and reflect My heart in your actions with others because sometimes your face is the only reflection of Me someone may see.
Isaiah 2:5 (VOICE) O house of Jacob— people of the promise —come, come walk with me by the light of the Eternal.
Beloved, fall in love with the light, for you are a child of the day and the darkness will not overcome you. For you shine, beloved, as your countenance reflects My glory. So dwell in My presence, and allow My love to saturate you fully.
Then, beloved, as you walk in that glorious warm glow of one who knows Me and is loved by Me, others will be drawn in. For My love is irresistible, and My light is life to their bones. So shine, beloved, and shine brightly, knowing you are reflecting Me.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 (AMP) Therefore encourage and comfort one another and build up one another, just as you are doing.
Beloved, I have wired you to speak life and give hope. Shore up the broken ones around you. Let them be bolstered by your own overflow of faith. Live and walk in the light, for as solar power is charged by the sun, so you are emboldened and your own faith quickened and invigorated by basking in the glory of My presence.
So reflect Me, and do so unashamedly. As you live your life for Me, people cannot help but see and be encouraged as they see my hand at work. So walk in joy. Walk in truth. Be steadfast in hope. And shine, beloved. Shine.
Mark 9:50 (VOICE) Salt is a good thing; but if it has lost its zest, how can it be seasoned again? You should have salt within yourselves and peace with one another.
Beloved, refuse to allow anything to convince you that how you have been made is bad or wrong. Different isn’t bad, it is unique. Strong isn’t bad, for there are moments where strength is essential. Quiet isn’t bad, for there are moments where tenderness is vital.
However I have made you, I assure you, it was with intention and it is good. Remember, beloved, that you are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” Trust that to be truth, and refuse to offer anything to the world other than a true representation of the wonderful you that you were created to be.
Romans 5:5 (VOICE) And hope will never fail to satisfy our deepest need because the Holy Spirit that was given to us has flooded our hearts with God’s love.
Beloved, look within yourself and find Me there – My love flooding you and saturating your very being. Each cell and molecule was given life by My Spirit. You are My love made manifest. So allow My love to satisfy you. Allow it to build hope – hope and faith in who I AM and who you are to Me.
Then share that love and hope from your overflow. Just as My love is shed abroad inside your heart, so radiate your love – a reflection of Mine – to the world around you. Shine, beloved. Let your love be a light that warms and gives hope, for it is a reflection and extension of Mine. You are My love made manifest.
1 Thessalonians 5:5 (VOICE) For you are all children of light. You are sons and daughters of the day. We are not created of night, nor are we owned by darkness.
Beloved, I AM the light and I live within you. Where there is light, no darkness can remain. Nor can light disguise itself as darkness, nor should it want to. So shine brightly, beloved. Be an emissary of light – vibrant and alive – and unafraid of changing the landscape around you.
There is nothing to fear from light. As you walk in truth, you know it only brings life. So even when things brought to light feel ugly or broken, simply know that the light has not caused it to be that way, but rather the light has refused to allow it to remain hidden.
For like lancing a wound, sometimes that which is wrong must be completely exposed to begin to bring it to rights. So embrace the truth and the light that brings it. Be not afraid of human reactions, but rather know I AM pleased as you walk as a reflection of Me.
Romans 5:5 (KJV) And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Beloved, just as My love is shed abroad in your heart, so share it with the world. Let your love shine – radiating warmth to all those you see. And may your love, which is a reflection of My love, give hope.
For hope brings peace, and with it comes joy. And in that place of contentment comes a knowledge of Me. So be a luminary, beloved, and shine forth the divine love that heals and changes lives.
Revelation 12:11 (TPT) They conquered him completely through the blood of the Lamb and the powerful word of his testimony. They triumphed because they did not love and cling to their own lives, even when faced with death.
Walk in victory, beloved, for the Lamb has overcome. Live your faith boldly. Let your actions speak loudly your faith in your King. Hold nothing more dearly than your trust in Me – not life or death – for the grave does not reign supreme, I do.
This place of bold assurance is where true power comes from. A heart that stands secure will know peace, for it knows nothing can threaten that which truly matters because victory is assured. Beloved, your eternity is in Me, and nothing can steal it away. So walk boldly in that power and the authority you have in Me, and move mightily on behalf of the Kingdom and My righteousness.
Romans 5:2 (NASB) …and we exult in hope of the glory of God.
Beloved, find exuberant joy in hope – the hope of Me and of My glory. Exult in Me throughout the nations. May your praise abound in all the earth. For I AM worthy of all honor and praise, so let your hope rest in Me.
Glory in the peace that hope in Me brings. Allow that confident assurance to shine forth in your countenance that those who see you might see and ask about about the foundation of your hope. This way your hope in Me isn’t simply your own bedrock, but also a beacon to all. Continue reading “Exult in Me Throughout the Nations”
