Isaiah 61:3 (TPT) …to give them a beautiful bouquet in the place of ashes, the oil of bliss instead of tears, and the mantle of joyous praise instead of the spirit of heaviness…
Beloved, I don’t patch things with a bandaid, or simply smooth things out so you don’t see the trials that were there before, no – I AM a God of radical transformation. I bring beauty from ashes, and joy from mourning. Nothing is too hard for Me.
Resist the heaviness that would try to cling to you, and embrace the mantle of joy that is yours. Burst forth in praise – in hopeful expectation, and watch as I manifest renewal in your life. Continue reading “Watch as I Manifest Renewal”
2 Corinthians 5:17 (TPT) – Now, if anyone is enfolded into Christ, he has become an entirely new creation. All that is related to the old order has vanished. Behold, everything is fresh and new.
Beloved, resist the urge to cling to old identities simply because they are familiar. Or to allow those around you to convince you that you are the same, for you are not. You are a new creation in Me. Step forth into the new you and refuse to be drawn back by others’ expectations.
A butterfly coming forth in all its glorious splendor has no trace of its caterpillar form, nor could it emulate it if it tried. Similarly, you have been radically transformed, beloved. You are made new. So fly with Me in the fullness of your newly transformed self.
2 Corinthians 3:18 (VOICE) Now all of us, with our faces unveiled, reflect the glory of the Lord as if we are mirrors; and so we are being transformed, metamorphosed, into His same image from one radiance of glory to another, just as the Spirit of the Lord accomplishes it.
Beloved, be transformed by My glory. Not changed in little, near unnoticeable increments, but rather wholly, completely, and radically transformed. Become a new creation in Me. Let the power of My glory bring forth metamorphosis and be made new.
Resist the urge to fight My transforming power. Refuse to be intimidated by change. Know that I AM with you always and My plans for you are good plans. Then yield to My wonder-working power and be made new.
Genesis 1:2 (VOICE) At first the earth lacked shape and was totally empty, and a dark fog draped over the deep while God’s spirit-wind hovered over the surface of the empty waters. Then there was the voice of God.
Beloved, I AM YHVH Bore, the Lord your Creator, and I AM still speaking life today. Just as My Son called Lazarus from the tomb and He came forth, so I AM calling to the dry, wounded, and dead places in your heart and calling out, “Come forth, beloved. Come forth!”
Hear and respond to My voice. Be transformed into the fullness of all I have called you to be. Be as radically changed as the caterpillar to the butterfly, unrecognizable in your glorious metamorphosis. Allow all you are – all I have made you – to shine forth unhindered bringing glory to My name. Continue reading “YHVH Bore (the Lord your Creator)”
Romans 12:2 (TPT) …be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.
Beloved, surrender your thoughts to Mine. Trust My perspective and trust Me to bring truth, for I AM truth. Allow My Holy Spirit to align your thoughts to Mine – make My views and beliefs your own, for Mine are rooted in truth. For I see and I understand.
Resist the urge to allow your personal experiences to cloud your understanding of truth. Often the words and actions of those around you reflect a perspective based in falsehood. Simply because it is reflected does not make it true.
So look to Me to bring truth and clarity, and then believe what I tell you. When I say you are beautiful and loved and precious, those things are fact regardless of whether others have reflected those truths to you accurately. So fix your gaze on Me, and allow Me to transform your mind by helping you be more like Me. Continue reading “More Like Me”
