Bold but Humble

2 Corinthians 3:12 (NIV) Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold.

Beloved, do not be afraid to step out in faith for I will meet you there. You feel My gentle nudges and you hear My quiet whispers, you know how I move, so follow Me. Follow Me off the “cliff” and know My hand is there to catch you. You are called to radical faith, beloved; so do not shy away or compare your walk to others and wonder why others have no been called to the same level of expectation. I expect much from you because I have called you to much. With great responsibility though also comes great reward. The joy of partnering with Me and seeing Me move, for I move in power.

A word of caution though, beloved. Do not get caught up in the supernatural things that touch your life and forget Who the source of that is or allow others to pull you into a place of pride. Stay humble. Stay contrite. Keep your eyes fixed on Me, for I AM all you need. You don’t need man’s approval, and indeed having it can be dangerous. So focus on Me: My eyes, My heart, My word, and stay humble and true.

The Confines of Your Understanding

Isaiah 55:8 (NLT) “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.

Beloved, resist the urge to try to contain Me within the confines of your understanding. I’m not a god of your making – one that can be controlled, manipulated, or fully understood. But just because you don’t always understand Me, does not mean I’m not good.

I AM good, and My ways are good. My heart is to bless and prosper My children, and to draw all into relationship with Me through My great love. So yield control to Me, and release your need to understand. Walk in childlike faith, trusting My character and My nature and My heart for you.

I AM the God of More than Enough

1 Kings 17:14 (VOICE) This is the message of the Eternal God of Israel: “The flour and the oil will not run out until the moment when the Eternal showers the earth with rain.”

Beloved, I AM more than able. I AM the God of more than enough. In Me there is no lack. Put your Hope in Me and cling fast. Refuse to be shaken. Simply stand true in faith because you know who I AM and that I AM a God of My word.

I’m not confined within natural restraints, or even within the expanse of your expectations. I AM infinite and supreme. Nothing is beyond Me nor anything above Me. So trust in Me and allow My natural – which is supernatural – to be your norm.

Stay Ready

Psalm 24:9 (TPT) So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice! Fling wide, you ageless doors of destiny! Here he comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in.

Beloved, be alert. Be ready. Be watchful because I AM about to move in ways you won’t want to miss. Rejoice and give praise for that which is to come. You know Me, and you know My character. I AM a miracle-working God, so keep your eyes open and attention fixed.

Beloved, you were created for such a time as this. Expand your expectations and make room in your heart for God-sized plans. For My plans are not the plans of men, for My ways are not your ways. So think bigger, think differently, and stay ready.

Psalm 24:3-10 (TPT) Who, then, ascends into the presence of the Lord? And who has the privilege of entering into God’s Holy Place? Those who are clean—whose works and ways are pure, whose hearts are true and sealed by the truth, those who never deceive, whose words are sure. They will receive the Lord’s blessing and righteousness given by the Savior-God. They will stand before God, for they seek the pleasure of God’s face, the God of Jacob. Pause in his presence So wake up, you living gateways! Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny! Welcome the King of Glory, for he is about to come through you. You ask, “Who is this Glory-King?” The Lord, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, invincible in every way! So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice! Fling wide, you ageless doors of destiny! Here he comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in. You ask, “Who is this King of Glory?” He is the Lord of Victory, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, the invincible commander of heaven’s hosts! Yes, he is the King of Glory! Pause in his presence

Be Vigilant

Matthew 26:41 (ASV) Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Beloved, stay alert. Keep your spiritual eyes open and attentive. Then allow My Spirit to move you based on what you’ve seen, that you might know how to pray. Resist the urge to rely on your natural senses, for they are limited and create bias. 

Instead be vigilant in the spirit – be open to what you’re “seeing” and sensing. Then pray. For, beloved, I have called you to a lifestyle of prayer. So be intentional to continually stay in communion with Me as you bring petitions before My throne.

Ignite the World in My Glory

Luke 10:19 (AMP) Listen carefully: I have given you authority [that you now possess] to tread on serpents and scorpions, and [the ability to exercise authority] over all the power of the enemy (Satan); and nothing will [in any way] harm you.

Beloved, human mind cannot fully comprehend the power of My Spirit. And yet, as you yield to Me and allow My power to work in and through you, the work of My Spirit is accomplished through human vessels. 

The supernatural is natural to Me. My children should expect to walk in My power – not in a way that puffs up human pride, but in a way that glorifies Me and expands My Kingdom. 

So be expectant for Me to move. Be expectant for My authority to be entrusted to My children. In humility, yield to My Spirit and watch how together we will move – igniting the world in My glory. 

Take the Limits Off of Me

John 16:24 (TPT) Until now you’ve not been bold enough to ask the Father for a single thing in my name, but now you can ask, and keep on asking him! And you can be sure that you’ll receive what you ask for, and your joy will have no limits!

Beloved, I AM a good Father who loves His children. Do you think a young child hesitates from asking their beloved earthly parent for anything their heart desires? Or that the parent of the cherished little one doesn’t weigh each request with reverence, desiring deeply to bless the child they love?

So beloved one, ask! Resist the urge to edit your requests, and instead pour out your heart’s desires to Me – trusting Me with those secret thoughts. If I withhold, it is not from a place of rejection or any lack of love, for My desire to bless you is beyond your comprehension. So take the limits off of Me and ask. 

Fiery Baptism of My Love

Matthew 3:11 (GW) I baptize you with water so that you will change the way you think and act. But the one who comes after me is more powerful than I. I am not worthy to remove his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Beloved, be baptized in My Spirit and My love’s refining fire. You cannot encounter the living God and walk away unchanged. By My breath the dead are raised. By My Spirit you speak in unknown tongues. By My fire you are purified. 

Be immersed in My powerful presence and be set free. Embrace My wonderworking touch and be strengthened and renewed. I AM the one who brings life, and brings it in abundance. Look to Me, and receive the fiery baptism of My love.

Connect to Me

John 1:51 (NLT) Then he said, “I tell you the truth, you will all see heaven open and the angels of God going up and down on the Son of Man, the one who is the stairway between heaven and earth.”

Beloved, I AM the way. Follow Me. All of heaven and earth lie before Me, and nothing is hidden from My eye. Connect yourself to Me, and open yourself to the things of Me. There is so much more accessible than you could begin to imagine – so grab hold. 

Through Me, dead are raised. Through Me, blind eyes see. Through Me, lame can walk. Through Me, the broken are healed, those in bondage are set free, those who weep are comforted, and so much more. I open the heavens, and through Me heaven touches earth – the supernatural becoming natural. So connect to Me.

Ask Me to Align Earth with Heaven

Matthew 6:10 (KJV) Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Beloved, ask for Me to align earth with heaven. Ask for My will to be done. Doing so demonstrates a trust in My will and My plans. Doing so yields control to Me rather than attempting to steer things according to your limited view. Trust Me. 

I desire for the supernatural to be natural in your life. I desire to see My people moving in My power under My authority. Ask for My power to come and be made manifest in the earth. Don’t be afraid to ask for the impossible because with Me nothing is impossible, but trust Me to do what is best.  Continue reading “Ask Me to Align Earth with Heaven”
