Step Forward Prepared

Psalm 131:2 (VOICE) Of one thing I am certain: my soul has become calm, quiet, and contented in You. Like a weaned child resting upon his mother, I am quiet. My soul is like this weaned child.

Beloved, a good parent prepares his child for what lies ahead, and I AM a good Father. So step forward prepared – knowing you are ready for whatever comes. For I AM with you always, and I walk beside you – and ever will I stay.

So be calm, beloved. Rest, and be content. Quiet your soul, and trust in Me. For I will never leave you friendless, nor abandon you to grief. Stand fast and rest safely in My hands as you step forward prepared by Me.

Step Where I Lead

Psalm 128:1 (VOICE) Those who stand in awe of the Eternal— who follow wherever He leads, committed in their hearts— experience His blessings!

Beloved, resist the urge to make your own path, but rather trust, and step where I lead. For blessing lies the way of obedience, so choose to honor Me. May My Word lead you, My hand guide you, and My Spirit counsel you as you seek hard after Me.

Be committed in your heart to a way of life and truth. For on My path is the place you’ll find the best I have for you. Choose humility, and yield control as you give all to Me. I’ll lead you well, My precious one, as you step where I lead. Continue reading “Step Where I Lead”

Step in Time with Me

Psalm 123:1-2 (VOICE) I raise my eyes to fix my gaze on You, for Your throne resides in the heavens. Just as the eyes of servants closely watch the hand of their masters, Just as a maid carefully observes the slightest gesture of her mistress, In the same way we look to You, Eternal One, waiting for our God to pour out His mercy upon us.

Beloved, step in time with Me. As a couple in a dance move together as one – where in close proximity one leads as the other follows seamlessly, so should we flow together as one. So stay close to My side, and allow My subtle leading to keep you in step with Me.

Keep your eyes and heart fixed on Me, that when you step, you might step rightly. No matter what comes your way, refuse to allow your attention to shift. Trust Me, trust My leading, and follow without hesitation. Continue reading “Step in Time with Me”

I AM the Sustainer

John 4:13-14 (VOICE) Jesus:  Drink this water, and your thirst is quenched only for a moment. You must return to this well again and again. I offer water that will become a wellspring within you that gives life throughout eternity. You will never be thirsty again.

Beloved, I AM the sustainer. I bring life, and I bring it in abundance. Only I can truly satisfy. So look to Me, and put your hope in Me. For I AM loving, and I AM good. I AM worthy of your trust.

Rely on Me. Be sustained by Me. Resist the urge to look to substitutes, for they will not quench your thirst nor sate your hunger – only I AM able. So put your whole heart in My hands, and trust Me to be all you need.

True Strength

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!

Rest and Rely on the Lover of Your Soul

Proverbs 3:23-24 (VOICE) Then each one of your steps will land securely on your life’s journey, and you will not trip or fall. Your mind will be clear, free from fear; when you lie down to rest, you will be refreshed by sweet sleep.

Beloved, rest in Me. Trust Me to guide each step – gently correcting when necessary – and strengthening you along the way as you lean on Me. Live in the place of peace that brings.

In Me, there is no fear. In Me, there is no confusion. Rest and rely on the Lover of your soul, because in Me your peace abounds. So be still, beloved, and sleep sweetly in My arms. I hold you fast and will never let you go.

Be Faithful in All Things

Job 8:7 (KJV) Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.

Beloved, do not despise small beginnings, or grow impatient when the increase seems delayed. For I build character in the waiting, and much is made clear of who you are with how you tend that which appears insignificant or beneath your notice. 

Be diligent in all things I set your hands to. Resist the urge to judge by human standards of big or small. The impact of a small bone being out of place is big, and in the same way the small thing you tend today can have larger ramifications than you understand. So be faithful with all things, and trust Me to bring increase in My timing.

Trust My Sovereignty

Psalm 37:8-9 (TPT) Stay away from anger and revenge. Keep envy far from you, for it only leads you into lies. For one day the wicked will be destroyed, but those who trust in the Lord will live safe and sound with blessings overflowing.

Beloved, hold fast to your heart of forgiveness. Be steadfast in gratitude. Refuse the traps of resentment and greed, instead resting in a place of contentment as you trust My sovereignty.

For those who trust in Me will not be put to shame. No, they live safely wrapped in My loving arms – resting in the shadow of My wings. My blessings overtake them, and they rise up as if on eagle’s wings. How sweet the sleep of those who dwell with Me.

Stir the Hope Within You

Psalm 37:7 (TPT) Quiet your heart in his presence and pray; keep hope alive as you long for God to come through for you. And don’t think for a moment that the wicked in their prosperity are better off than you.

Beloved, stir the hope within you, and know I AM ever near. I will not leave you lonely, nor desert you when you are in need of My hand. I see you. I AM with you. Keep your heart steadfast in faith.

Refuse to waste time in comparison, looking to see with earthly eyes and human understanding where My focus seems to be. Rather trust My heart towards you is steadfast and good, and know that I AM trustworthy and true. Encourage yourself in your faith as you put your hope in Me.

You are Seen by Me

Psalm 37:6 (TPT) He will appear as your righteousness, as sure as the dawning of a new day. He will manifest as your justice, as sure and strong as the noonday sun.

Beloved, you are seen by Me. Trust that I AM your defender and I AM your light. I bring forth justice for My children – My eye is ever upon them. I AM your righteousness, YHVH Tsidkenu – the Lord your righteousness. 

You are the apple of My eye. Think you that I would stand idly by as you are accused or besmirched? Never. If it seems I hold My peace, trust that it is for a reason. You are never unseen or ignored, beloved, for you are precious to Me.
