A Beautiful Display

Matthew 5:14 (NLT) You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.

Beloved, light and life have been deposited in you. I exhort you to be intentional about sharing it. I do not bestow gifts upon you simply for your own benefit and pleasure, but rather for your use to further My Kingdom. 

So shine and shine brightly. Boldly demonstrate the life that comes from one who has surrendered to Me. Death to self is life in Me – and life more abundant. So let it burst forth in glorious clarity, a beautiful display of My life-changing love at work in the hearts of men. 

Redeemed and Set Free

Romans 5:8 (TPT) But Christ proved God’s passionate love for us by dying in our place while we were still lost and ungodly!

Beloved, My love for you is not in doubt. It has been clearly demonstrated that you might have no cause to question. So resist the urge to push against the truth that I find you worthy. Worthy of life at the cost of death. Worthy. 

You didn’t have to do anything to curry My favor. You simply are – and what you are is precious to Me. Embrace My gift. Beloved, you have been redeemed. Walk as one who has been set free, for you are free indeed. 

Passionate Awakening

Song of Solomon 8:4 (VOICE) …Heed my warning: I charge you not to excite your love until it is ready. Don’t stir a fire in your heart too soon, until it is ready to be satisfied.

Be patient, beloved, and trust My timing. Resist the urge to be impatient or to move ahead of My plans. Everything must be in its season. You cannot rush a fruit to ripen, nor speed the growth of a child through nagging, so resist the urge to try.

Wait upon Me. Surrender to My cadence. Stay in step. Allow your longing to grow to full maturation without it edging into frustration or agitation. Enjoy the blooming season, and embrace the passionate awakening wholeheartedly in its time.

My Power is Ready and Available

Mark 16:18 (TPT) They will be supernaturally protected from snakes and from drinking anything poisonous.  And they will lay hands on the sick and heal them.”

Beloved, be My hands and feet. As My Spirit prompts you, move. Trust that My power is ready and available when you’re operating in My will. Not in your own strength, but in Mine. For I AM able. 

You have nothing to fear as you live submitted to Me, for I AM with you and moving in every circumstance. I AM good and I AM able, so make ready. A move of My Kingdom is afoot.  Continue reading “My Power is Ready and Available”

The Power of My Touch

Malachi 4:2 (VOICE) But for you, the ones who tremble at the sound of My name, a warm sun of righteousness will come forth with healing in its rays, and you will go out, springing from the stalls like calves in open pasture.

Beloved, turn your face to the warmth of My Son with healing in His gaze. Be set free with resurrection power from the chains that have bound you. Spring forth in the fullness of your liberty. 

Receive it all, beloved. Receive it all. Hold Me close in love and high in reverence. In all things trust Me, for I speak of mysteries and truth. Abide with Me – dwell in My presence. Be renewed, healed, and transformed by the power of My touch. 

True Foundation

1 John 3:1 (TPT) Look with wonder at the depth of the Father’s marvelous love that he has lavished on us! He has called us and made us his very own beloved children. The reason the world doesn’t recognize who we are is that they didn’t recognize him.

Beloved, don’t be concerned when those around you reject or mistreat you, they did the same to Me. So refuse to take their actions as a measure of your worth, but rather trust My assessment of your value. 

I love you beyond measure. I cherish and adore you. You are the apple of My eye – the light of My world. Be filled to overflowing with the blessing of My love. Be so full lies and misperceptions from the world cannot shake your true foundation in Me.

Make the Time

Psalm 27:4 (AMP) One thing I have asked of the Lord, and that I will seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, To gaze upon the beauty [the delightful loveliness and majestic grandeur] of the Lord And to meditate in His temple.

Beloved, bask in My presence. Dwell in My beauty. Make time and sit with Me. Be intentional to learn the truth of who I AM that you might be unshakable in your understanding of My character. To do that, you must take the time with Me. Just as you make time for those you love in the natural, make time for Me. 

When you’re with a dear friend, you don’t instruct them they need to be “more exciting” or you’ll go spend time with someone else. Instead you spend hours simply being together, and you find priceless moments in the quantity of time spent. So it is with Me, beloved. So it is with Me, so make the time.

Change Lives as You Lead

Malachi 2:6 (GW) The teaching that came from his mouth was true. Nothing unjust was found on his lips. He lived with me in peace and honesty and turned many people away from sin.

Beloved, let injustice be so far from your character that you are known as a lover of truth and righteousness. Show those around you what a life in Me looks like. Be honest and transparent. Resist sinful tendencies. I AM your strength. 

Walk with Me. Lead by example. Let your actions speak loudly while your words are those of truth, love, and encouragement. Resist the urge to be self-righteous or condemn those around you. Walk in truth, and change lives as you lead. 

My Resonant Peace

Psalm 23:2 (TPT) He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love. His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss.

Beloved, rest in My love. This place of rest is one found inside, and not dependent on outer circumstances. Like an eye in the storm, My peace makes room for itself regardless of situations that may seem to challenge it. 

So cling fast. Refuse to relinquish My peace regardless of the winds and waves that come. Pause and feel that peace I have given you. Allow it to quiet your soul. Take comfort in My abundant love and breath in the bliss of My resonant peace. 

Feel My Glory Rising

Malachi 4:2 (AMP) But for you who fear My name [with awe-filled reverence] the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go forward and leap [joyfully] like calves [released] from the stall.

Beloved, stay in that place of awe-filled wonder and trust that I AM able to do abundantly above all you can ask or think. For I AM able. Stand in adoration before your King. 

Feel My glory rising and the tide of the miraculous along with it. Be ready, beloved. Be ready to burst forth in joy to the right and to the left. Be unrestrained in your praise to the One who is worthy. For I AM moving, beloved. Make ready.
