Matthew 5:13 (MSG) Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.
Beloved, choose the flavor with which you season your world. Will you season it with bitterness? Anger? Envy? Greed? Or will you sow liberally righteousness? Forgiveness? Compassion? Joy?
Beloved, choose to bring My flavor to those around you that they might taste and see that I AM God. Make Me known. For you have the choice of whose kingdom you are expanding. Either you are sowing into My Kingdom or you are making room for darkness. So season, and do so intentionally. Bring My flavor to the world.

1 Peter 2:9 (VOICE) But you are a chosen people, set aside to be a royal order of priests, a holy nation, God’s own; so that you may proclaim the wondrous acts of the One who called you out of inky darkness into shimmering light.
Beloved, all the supernatural, all My fingerprints throughout the earth serve one purpose, to demonstrate who I AM and to bring Me glory. It is not that I’m in need of you pumping up My ego, but rather that all must know – truly know and understand – who I AM that they might choose wisely and align with Me and the way of right.
By your words and actions, demonstrate who your God is and that I AM worthy because I AM God. Live a life of obedience and praise that all may see how I respond as My hand is clearly manifested in your life. Continue reading “Live a Life of Obedience and Praise”
Colossians 4:6 (VOICE) When you speak the word, speak it gracefully (as if seasoned with salt), so you will know how to respond to everyone rightly.
Beloved, as you live your faith, let your life speak for itself. Resist the urge to “help” Me further the Kingdom by acting “on My behalf” without the unction of My Spirit. Passion for Me is vital, but passion alone isn’t enough. Cultivate wisdom, discernment, and understanding.
Then use that character to temper your zeal. A sawed off shot gun and a sniper rifle both have power, but only one is harnessed and has singular accuracy, which is power under control. So lay down your own agenda, yield to My leading, and allow My Spirit to guard your tongue, in doing so you become a powerful force for 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.
Psalm 118:17 (NKJV) I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of the LORD.
Beloved, though the enemy of your soul has done his best to take you down, he has not (and will not) succeed. You are Mine. You walk in My resurrection power, and the beauty of My redemption in you is complete. By faith receive it. Allow My love to heal you from the inside out.
So live, beloved, and do so with the abundant life I have given you. Then testify. Declare My works to all who will have ears to hear, and do so through both your actions and words. Live out loud, boldly making known that you are loved and that I AM your God.
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.
1 John 4:7 (VOICE) My loved ones, let us devote ourselves to loving one another. Love comes straight from God, and everyone who loves is born of God and truly knows God.
Beloved, I AM love. It is not simply that I love you without measure, but that I AM love itself. And you are made in My image. So love like Me – without restraint or limitation, without taking offense or growing impatient – love as I love.
Love doesn’t mean always agreeing with someone, but it does mean being kind and long suffering when you don’t agree. And love doesn’t mean allowing yourself to be abused, but it does mean hoping for the best about that person and releasing them to Me.
So, beloved, choose to love and love well. For walking in love shares your faith faster and more effectively than any words could accomplish. And loving well makes you more and more like Me.
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”
Psalm 105:1 (AMP) O give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the people.
Beloved, you know My name, and you’re well familiar with My nature. Will you tell the world who I AM? Give thanks to Me, and make My deeds known among the nations. Share unashamedly about how I have moved in your life.
Testify, beloved. Share the truth of My character, for so many have a skewed and false view of who I AM. It isn’t your job to change their minds, but it is your job not to hold back from speaking truth – the truth of who I AM, how I move, and the power of My love.
Matthew 9:37 (AMP) Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is [indeed] plentiful, but the workers are few.
Beloved, the harvest is plentiful. Everywhere around you are people who are in desperate need of Me. Resist the urge to use your natural mind to find them. Instead simply be light. Shine in the midst of the darkness. Allow all to see how My hand on your life has radically changed who you are.
Be moved by My Spirit. Allow Me to lead to you when to speak and what to say. Refuse to allow logic to trump My voice. Yield to Me. I know the hearts I have prepared for a word in season. So be My voice to those who can’t hear Me – of whom there are many.
Matthew 9:36-38 (TPT) When he saw the vast crowds of people, Jesus’ heart was deeply moved with compassion, because they seemed weary and helpless, like wandering sheep without a shepherd. He turned to his disciples and said, “The harvest is huge and ripe! But there are not enough harvesters to bring it all in. As you go, plead with the Owner of the Harvest to thrust out many more reapers to harvest his grain!”
