Yield to My Perfect Will

Proverbs 3:8 (VOICE) If you depend on Him, your body and mind will be free from the strain of a sinful life, will experience healing and health, and will be strengthened at their core.

Beloved, I do not instruct you to yield to Me and My ways from a desire to control you or strong arm you into doing what I want. I instruct you to yield because I see the path of greatest blessing. Sometimes that blessing comes from grace under challenge and sometimes from hardships avoided, but ultimately I see the best path.

I desire blessing for you. When you choose to surrender your will to Mine, you are demonstrating that you trust Me and believe My heart towards you is good. When you resist Me, you demonstrate fear and a lack of trust. Often those choices come from past woundings, so I extend grace even in those moments. However, the highest sense of right in any situation is to yield to My perfect will and trust Me to guide you through. So make the intentional decision to yield, and leave the rest to Me.

Proverbs 3:5-8 (VOICE) Place your trust in the Eternal; rely on Him completely; never depend upon your own ideas and inventions. Give Him the credit for everything you accomplish, and He will smooth out and straighten the road that lies ahead. And don’t think you can decide on your own what is right and what is wrong. Respect the Eternal; turn and run from evil. If you depend on Him, your body and mind will be free from the strain of a sinful life, will experience healing and health, and will be strengthened at their core.

Trust Me to Lead You Rightly

Proverbs 3:7 (VOICE) And don’t think you can decide on your own what is right and what is wrong. Respect the Eternal; turn and run from evil.

Beloved, human judgment is influenced by opinions and bias, which makes it faulty. Even those who attempt to be scrupulous can still err, despite honest and earnest efforts to be righteous. Because I AM the same yesterday, today, and forever, My thoughts stay true – day-by-day, year-by-year, generation-by-generation. So trust Me to be steadfast in truth.

My Word and My Spirit guide you, if you will let Me lead. I can steer you clear of evil – whether they be obvious sin or unseen ones of the heart. If you trust and respect Me, you know I do not make rules for their own sake. Rather everything has a purpose, and that purpose is good.

If you find you don’t understand My instructions, you know that you can trust me anyway – even when you don’t understand. So resist the urge to allow a “need to understand” to become an idol. Instead yield to Me and trust Me to lead, and to lead you rightly.

Lean into Me

Song of Solomon 8:5 (TLB) “Who is this coming up from the desert, leaning on her beloved?” King Solomon: “Under the apple tree where your mother gave birth to you in her travail, there I awakened your love.”

Beloved, lean into Me as I awaken your love for Me at new levels. Walk with Me in the cool of the day – allow Me to hold you close. For this is the place from which intimacy is born. Yes, it comes from the quiet moments of easy sharing that occur as you “do life” together.

So walk with Me, beloved. Share the things of your heart and listen as I share mine. Just as intimacy between a husband and wife occurs in the many moments of both casual and deep sharing, so it is with Me. So intentionally include Me in your daily life. Lean into Me.

Leave the Rest to Me

Psalm 86:14 (TPT) God, look at how these arrogant ones have defied me. Like a vicious band of violent men they have tried to kill me. They wouldn’t worry for a moment that they were sinning against you!

Beloved, when you live aligned with Me and walking on the path I have for you while observing My ways, those who criticize you, criticize Me. You don’t need to defend yourself, or try to hide who I have called you to be, for it is both of us they accuse.

Beloved, walk in humility and forgiveness. Allow Me to be the One to come to your defense. Trust Me to know the best way and perfect timing. All you need to do is to keep your heart right, and then leave the rest to Me.

Psalm 86:13-17 (TPT) You love me so much and you placed your greatness upon me. You rescued me from the deepest place of darkness, and you have delivered me from a certain death. God, look at how these arrogant ones have defied me. Like a vicious band of violent men they have tried to kill me. They wouldn’t worry for a moment that they were sinning against you! But Lord, your nurturing love is tender and gentle. You are slow to get angry yet so swift to show your faithful love. You are full of abounding grace and truth. Bring me to your grace-fountain so that your strength becomes mine. Be my hero and come rescue your servant once again! Send me a miraculous sign to show me how much you love me, so that those who hate me will see it and be ashamed. Don’t they know that you, Lord, are my comforter, the one who comes to help me?

You are My Everything {Moments with God}

Psalm 86:10 (TPT) You are the one and only God. What miracles! What wonders! What greatness belongs to you!

{From a heart filled with praise} God, I know who You are. Year after year I’ve seen You move in my life in beautiful and amazing ways. So even in this moment where I don’t see Your hand – when I’m confused and don’t understand – I still choose to remember who I know You to be. I know You are faithful, and I know You’re looking out for me. I know I can trust You, and I know You have good plans for me. I know I can safely rest in the shadow of Your wings. And I know beyond a shadow of a doubt, You are my everything.

Psalm 86:9-12 (TPT) Lord Almighty, you are the one who created all the nations; Look at them—they’re all on their way! Yes, the day will come when they all will worship you and put your glory on display. You are the one and only God. What miracles! What wonders! What greatness belongs to you! Teach me more about you, how you work and how you move, so that I can walk onward in your truth until everything within me brings honor to your name. With all my heart and passion I will thank you, my God! I will give glory to your name, always and forever!

Choose to Trust

Psalm 86:3 (TPT) Lord God, hear my constant cry for help; show me your favor and bring me to your fountain of grace!

Beloved, I hear every word that falls from your lips (whether you’re addressing them to Me or not). Resist the urge to think I’m unfeeling or unmoved simply because I respond differently than you hope or perhaps think I should.

I AM the Alpha and I AM the Omega. I AM the first and last. My perspective is beyond your comprehension, so choose to trust My judgement. And choose to trust My counsel. And yield to My direction, and know it’s for your good.

Psalm 86:1-4 (TPT) Lord, bend down to listen to my prayer. I am in deep trouble. I’m broken and humbled, and I desperately need your help. Guard my life, for I’m your faithful friend, your loyal servant for life. I turn to you in faith, my God, my hero; come and rescue me! Lord God, hear my constant cry for help; show me your favor and bring me to your fountain of grace! Restore joy to your loving servant once again, for all I am is yours, O God.

Adonai Elohim (Lord God)

Habakkuk 3:19 (NASB) The Lord GOD is my strength, And He has made my feet like hinds’ feet, And makes me walk on my high places. For the choir director, on my stringed instruments.

Beloved, I AM Lord and I AM God. I AM Adonai Elohim – Lord God, the infinite – the I AM. I AM your strength, your safety – your ever present One. Rely on Me. Choose Me. Trust Me.

Refuse to be one who declares trust with their mouth, but whose actions tell a different tale. Let your choices speak for you that your life may declare who I AM and who you know Me to be. For I AM, and I AM faithful. Choose Me.

Yield to Me

Psalm 1:1 (VOICE) God’s blessings follow you and await you at every turn: when you don’t follow the advice of those who delight in wicked schemes…

Beloved, refuse to be drawn in by those with wicked intent. Trust your intuition, for My Holy Spirit will prompt you through such means. So if someone seems off though they have all the outward signs of righteousness, proceed with caution. Since you know their fruit will demonstrate the true nature of their intent, watch and wait to see the type fruit they yield.

For a good tree cannot put forth bad fruit, nor a bad tree put forth good fruit. So move with caution as you watch and wait. For the ploys of the enemy are devious at every turn, and yet you need not be afraid as you rest in Me. So if My Spirit urges caution, heed without delay. Wait on Me, and trust My Spirit to lead you. Your role is simply to yield to Me.

Psalm 1:1-3 (VOICE) God’s blessings follow you and await you at every turn: when you don’t follow the advice of those who delight in wicked schemes, When you avoid sin’s highway, when judgment and sarcasm beckon you, but you refuse. For you, the Eternal’s Word is your happiness. It is your focus—from dusk to dawn. You are like a tree, planted by flowing, cool streams of water that never run dry. Your fruit ripens in its time; your leaves never fade or curl in the summer sun . No matter what you do, you prosper.

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.

Keenly Attuned

Psalm 17:6 (VOICE) I am crying aloud to You, O True God, for I long to know Your answer. Hear me, O God. Hear my plea. Hear my prayer for help.

Beloved, I AM keenly attuned to your voice. I don’t miss one utterance that falls from your lips. I know you so well that I don’t miss even your unspoken heart cries. I hear them all. I AM always ready and I AM always listening.

In the same way a good parent would not sit back and watch as their child struggled and drowned, know that I too am keenly attentive to your every need, so you don’t have to beg for My help or My attention – I give it freely. I listen to each whisper, and anticipate every need. So trust that I AM with you and that I will never leave.

Psalm 17:5-8 (VOICE) I will press on —moving steadfastly forward along Your path. I will not look back. I will not stumble. I am crying aloud to You, O True God, for I long to know Your answer. Hear me, O God. Hear my plea. Hear my prayer for help. Put Your marvelous love on display for all to see. Liberator of those who long for shelter beside You, set them safely away from their enemies, ever welcomed by grace. Keep close watch over me as the apple of Your eye; shelter me in the shadow of Your wings.
