Keep Me in Your Midst

Matthew 18:20 (VOICE) For when two or three gather together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.

Beloved, be intentional to keep Me in your midst. For unity and harmony come much more smoothly when everyone is seeking to align with Me rather than their personal agendas. In the end, My Kingdom reigns eternal. That is where your attentions and efforts are best spent.

So choose to focus on Me. For though I move in power, I also move in humility. Power is not an arrogant assertion of one’s rights, but rather an inherent strength that simply is. In the same way true leaders draw followers to themselves whether they’re trying to or not, when you operate in true power, its manifestation will always make itself visible.

So choose to align with Me. Submit yourself in love and humility. Be a vessel of unity – intentionally cultivate harmony. Keep Me in your midst. Then watch as the fruit comes forth and you see My Kingdom increasingly manifesting on earth.

Thrive Together in Love

Proverbs 24:6 (VOICE) For with wise guidance, you can wage a successful war, and with a council of many advisors, you will be victorious!

Beloved, seek godly counsel. Surround yourself with those who strive to be in right relationship with Me. For as each of you seek to walk uprightly, you will challenge one another to new levels of integrity and faith. Such relationships inherently strengthen one another.

So cultivate your divine connections, and bear with one another in love through every season. Then rest on those relationships to bring wisdom and confirmation when the days of trials come. Their voices – echoing Mine – will bring comfort and strength when it is most needed. Thrive together in love.

My Love Knows No Bounds

1 Peter 3:8 (NIV) Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.

Beloved, My love knows no bounds. I do not discriminate or withhold My love from any who reach for Me. I love all of My creation – those who know Me, and those who don’t. I bring rain and sun on both the righteous and the unrighteous. I AM generous with My goodness.

If you are made in My image and are called to be like Me, then you also should love without restraint. It is beautiful to see My children love without bias or discrimination – for them to love unconditionally without judgment. For the world knows much of judgment, but not enough of love and mercy.

Therefore, extend it to all – give it as though it is a gift for Me, because it is. Your generosity of spirit is a sweet offering before My throne because I love to see My children love like Me.

Dwelling Place

1 Peter 2:5 (TPT) Come and be his “living stones” who are continually being assembled into a sanctuary for God. For now you serve as holy priests, offering up spiritual sacrifices that he readily accepts through Jesus Christ.

Beloved, present yourself as a living offering. Be part of My holy temple – a dwelling place for My Spirit. Welcome Me, even as I welcome you into My presence – that we might be one. United in thought and purpose. 

And from this place of unity, work in unison with Me and act on My behalf. Be prompted by My Spirit – a holy priest, ordained by Me. To effectively and rightly represent Me, you must first know Me and be known by Me. So dwell in My presence, and be indwelt by Me.

Cultivate Peace and Unity

Ephesians 4:3-4 (TPT) Be faithful to guard the sweet harmony of the Holy Spirit among you in the bonds of peace, being one body and one spirit, as you were all called into the same glorious hope of divine destiny.

Beloved, keep your eyes fixed on the hope of the call I have for you – both personally and corporately. Choose to act in a way that aligns with that destiny. Choose unity. Choose patience. Choose humility. Choose love.

For this is what you’ve been called to. Be intentional to cultivate peace and unity within the Body. As each of you yields to My Spirit, you cannot help but align with one another. So yield, beloved, and do so in love.

It All Starts with Love

Isaiah 11:6 (VOICE) A day will come when the wolf will live peacefully beside the wobbly-kneed lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the young goat; The calf and yearling, newborn and slow, will rest secure with the lion; and a little child will tend them all.

Beloved, knowing that peace reigns in My Kingdom, choose wherever possible to live in peace. Bring heaven to earth by choosing harmony through selflessness and humility. Bear with those around you with perseverant love. For love reigns above all.

So choose love. Choose harmony. Choose peace. Choose humility. Be the bigger person. Care more for reflecting My heart than for defending yourself or protecting your pride. Choose Me and My ways first, and remember it all starts with love.

Advocate for Harmony

Galatians 3:28 (VOICE) It makes no difference whether you are a Jew or a Greek, a slave or a freeman, a man or a woman, because in Jesus the Anointed, the Liberating King, you are all one.

Beloved, humans have a tendency to focus on areas of difference, often because the strangeness of what is unfamiliar catches the attention. Choosing to celebrate those differences without allowing division can be a powerful tool for unity. 

There is no problem noting differences as long as they aren’t used to separate. For My heart is for unity in love. Therefore as you reflect the same thing and choose to be at ease with that which is different, you demonstrate to others that they should do likewise. In doing so you become an advocate for harmony and an instigator of peace.

Love is the Underpinning of Harmony

Colossians 3:14 (NLT) Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.

Beloved, be clothed in love. Just as people will see your outer garment first, so let your love be so apparent that it is easily seen by all. Be known as a person who loves well, for I AM love, so love comes from Me. 

Love is the underpinning of harmony. For true harmony to exist, you must operate in grace and humility with a liberal dose of love. For love brings forth true peace as you come together in a true joyous representation of unity.

Align with Me

Jeremiah 20:11 (VOICE) But I am not alone. The Eternal is here with me. He stands beside me, as a dreaded warrior. That is why my tormentors will fail so miserably. They cannot win. Their humiliation and permanent dishonor will be remembered for all time.

Beloved, align with Me, and I will stand beside you and in defense of you. No one can stand against Me, so join forces with Me. I AM victorious. I AM faithful. And I AM fiercely protective of My children. 

You need not worry about that which stands against you as you stand with Me. The power is not in you, but in Who you stand with. Look to Me and join forces with Me.

Working in Unity

Ecclesiastes 4:9 (VOICE) Two are better than one because a good return comes when two work together.

Beloved, lay aside any pride that insists you “do it on your own,” and instead be open to partnering with those I connect you with. Then see the increased results of your labor.  

It is not weakness to join with others, nor is it an indication that you are lacking. I have created each of you with specific strengths and giftings, so play to each other’s strengths. Make room for each other’s giftings. Then celebrate the outcome working in unity brings.
