Acts 2:2 (TPT) Suddenly they heard the sound of a violent blast of wind rushing into the house from out of the heavenly realm. The roar of the wind was so overpowering it was all anyone could bear!
Beloved, My Spirit can be gentle, but never mistake it for being weak. True strength comes not simply from power, but also understanding what is needed – whether it be a roar of wind or a gentle breeze – and bringing exactly what is necessary for impact.
So yield to My flow, whether I move in great strength or in tenderness. Yield to Me, and rest in My perfect judgement – My assessment of need, for I see that which you do not. So trust Me and surrender to My flow.
Acts 2:2-4 (TPT) Suddenly they heard the sound of a violent blast of wind rushing into the house from out of the heavenly realm. The roar of the wind was so overpowering it was all anyone could bear! Then all at once a pillar of fire appeared before their eyes. It separated into tongues of fire that engulfed each one of them. They were all filled and equipped with the Holy Spirit and were inspired to speak in tongues—empowered by the Spirit to speak in languages they had never learned!

Beloved, walk in My grace. Dry your tears, for a new season is upon you. The joy of the Lord is your strength (Nehemiah 8:10), and joy is found in My presence (Psalm 16:11). So abide with Me, My fair one, and be refreshed and filled.

I AM more than enough. No enemy is too strong, no situation is too complicated, no challenge is too great. I AM El Gibbor – Mighty God, and I AM all you need. Continue reading “I AM More Than Enough”
James 3:7-8 (CSB) Every kind of animal, bird, reptile, and fish is tamed and has been tamed by humankind, but no one can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
Beloved, without My help, taming your tongue would be an arduous and ultimately unsuccessful task. But with Me all things are possible. Surrender your voice to Me. Ask Me to fill your mouth. For I AM fully able to strengthen you to walk in humility.
When you care more for Me than the thoughts and opinions of man, holding your tongue simply becomes a gift and an offering to Me, and I find it most pleasing. So walk in that humble strength, for it is beautiful. Continue reading “Humble Strength”
Psalm 51:17 (NKJV) The sacrifices of God [are] a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart—These, O God, You will not despise.
Beloved, when you come to Me with all your precious, broken pieces, I make you whole. So resist the urge to continue seeing yourself as somehow less than what you are, for you are no longer the same. You have changed. By My Spirit you are strengthened and made whole.
And as you submit your yielded heart to Me, that is an offering most pleasing. And then together, My beloved one, we can be a force as you move in My strength and authority on behalf of the Kingdom. Know who you are in Me.
Matthew 26:41 (AMP) Keep actively watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the body is weak.”
Beloved, refuse to allow weakness, distraction, or apathy to keep you from responding to My Spirit’s direction. Knowing that you are susceptible to distraction, be all the more alert for My gentle direction.
Regardless of the weakness of your flesh, those whose hearts are fixed on Me have willing spirits; therefore, you are more than able to stay ready to respond to My leading. So move past your acknowledgment of weakness, and rather focus on the strength that comes from Me. Then yield, and allow Me to move mightily through My yielded vessel.
Psalm 36:7 (VOICE) Your strong love, O True God, is precious. All people run for shelter under the shadow of Your wings.
Beloved, I wait – with outstretched arms that you might hide in the shadow of My wings. Like a mother bird shelters her chicks, I AM always here to shelter you in My strong love.
It isn’t a question of whether you are worth protecting or if I’m willing, I AM always ready and waiting for you. So come and rest in Me. Refuse to try to “maintain” in your own strength because I AM here for you, beloved, always. So cast your cares on Me.
Run to Me, and cling fast. I AM ready, willing, and able. I AM your comfort and your place of refuge, so find rest and refreshing in Me. I AM El Tsur – God your strength, so find what you need as you rest in Me.
Hebrews 12:28-29 (VOICE) Therefore, let us all be thankful that we are a part of an unshakable Kingdom and offer to God worship that pleases Him and reflects the awe and reverence we have toward Him, for He is like a fierce fire that consumes everything.
Beloved, I AM unshakable. My Kingdom knows no end. I AM a fierce and mighty warrior – a blazing fire and a roaring lion, shaking all that can be shaken so that what may stand firm will remain.
As you are tested in the fires, you need not be afraid. In the valley of the shadow of death, I AM with you – you have nothing to fear. Join forces with Me. Stay by My side and trust Me, for I AM unshakable. Continue reading “I AM Unshakable”
Isaiah 6:5 (NKJV) So I said: “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The Lord of hosts.”
Beloved, as you rightly see Me, you cannot help but be humbled. It is not a bad thing to be completely wrecked in My presence. You are safe with me, so be undone. Let the trappings of the world disappear and see rightly, for from that place truth comes forth.
Beloved, I break that I might heal – and I strengthen you in the healing. I prepare you for the times ahead. Trust yourself to Me, and be undone in My presence. Then let me bring strength and restoration as I commission you for the road ahead. Continue reading “Be Undone”
