Walk in Wisdom

Proverbs 3:17-18 (TPT) The ways of wisdom are sweet, always drawing you into the place of wholeness. Seeking for her brings the discovery of untold blessings, for she is the healing tree of life to those who taste her fruits.

Beloved, seek fast after wisdom and ask Me for it, for I will not withhold it. But remember that seeking and having wisdom is only part of the journey. Implementing that wisdom and making decisions based on it is essential as well. 

For as you walk in wisdom, blessing overtakes you. It draws you into a place of wholeness. And from that place of completeness, you are able to effectively pour out to others. So seek wisdom. Ask for it. Then walk in wisdom that you might be blessed and be a blessing.  Continue reading “Walk in Wisdom”

El Olam (the Everlasting God)

Isaiah 46:4 (NLT) I will be your God throughout your lifetime— until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.

Beloved, I AM El Olam, the everlasting God, and I love you with an everlasting love. I love you as a squalling child and I love you with the gray hairs of wisdom, and everything in between and beyond. I AM your God. 

Rest in your faith, and know that I AM always with you. And in that day when you join Me in heaven, I will love you still. It is My joy to hold you through every season of your life, whether on earth or in heaven. Beloved, you are Mine.

My Powerful Hand

Psalm 44:2 (VOICE) With a powerful hand, You drove the nations from this land, but then You planted our parents here. You fought for us against people of this land; You set our parents free to enjoy its goodness.

Beloved, in my mercy I created a place for you. I carved out somewhere for you to belong. In my strength – the power of My right hand, I make way for you and bring you blessing. Why then are you tempted to move in your own strength? Why then do you strive to make your own way?

You are Mine, beloved, and I take care of My children. Rest in Me. Trust in My strength and provision. Allow Me to lead you that you might know – in good times and in bad – I AM your God. 

The Pleasure of Knowing Me

Psalm 105:3 (VOICE) Revel in His holy name. May the hearts of the people who seek the Eternal celebrate and experience great joy.

Beloved, take great pleasure in knowing who I AM – in knowing My character, in knowing My name. I AM steadfast and everlasting – unchanging and fully reliable. I AM your true north – the One who gives you both stability and direction, so look to Me.

Seek Me with great fervor, and understand My worth. Take joy in both the pursuit and the times of intimacy. Remember the whole of the journey is of value, not simply the destination points along the way. Take time to experience the great joy of relationship with Me.

YHVH Zimrath (the Lord your Song)

Psalm 42:8 (VOICE) Yet in the light of day, the Eternal shows me His love. When night settles in and all is dark, He keeps me company— His soothing song, a prayerful melody to the True God of my life.

Beloved, quiet your soul and hear My song. Its strains whispering peace to those who would listen. Tune in to that golden flow. Let it wash over you. Let it be what mandates the cadence of your life. 

Resist the urge to allow the chaos of the world to bring discord, but instead press in deeper, like a child burrowing into their parent’s shoulder – safe, secure, and loved in their arms. I AM your safety and I AM your song – YHVH Zimrath, the Lord your song. 

Psalm 42:1, 5, 7-8 (VOICE) My soul is dry and thirsts for You, True God, as a deer thirsts for water. Why am I so overwrought? Why am I so disturbed? Why can’t I just hope in God? Despite all my emotions, I will believe and praise the One who saves me and is my life. In the roar of Your waterfalls, ancient depths surge, calling out to the deep. All Your waves break over me; am I drowning? Yet in the light of day, the Eternal shows me His love. When night settles in and all is dark, He keeps me company— His soothing song, a prayerful melody to the True God of my life.

Drown in My Depths

Psalm 42:7 (VOICE) In the roar of Your waterfalls, ancient depths surge, calling out to the deep. All Your waves break over me; am I drowning? 

Beloved, is there such a thing as too much of My love? Come drown in My depths. Be lulled in the flow of My Spirit. Be invigorated – My breath like bubbles against your skin. I AM El Shammah – the God who is present, and I AM always with you. 

Press into Me and seek out the deep mysteries, for I will not withhold wisdom from those who ask. Be drawn deeper still, for there is no end to Me. Revelation upon revelation. Mercy beyond mercy. Love, endless love. Like a pool of swirling waves, happily drown in the pleasure of knowing and being known.

Psalm 42:1, 5, 7-8 (VOICE) My soul is dry and thirsts for You, True God, as a deer thirsts for water. Why am I so overwrought? Why am I so disturbed? Why can’t I just hope in God? Despite all my emotions, I will believe and praise the One who saves me and is my life. In the roar of Your waterfalls, ancient depths surge, calling out to the deep. All Your waves break over me; am I drowning? Yet in the light of day, the Eternal shows me His love. When night settles in and all is dark, He keeps me company— His soothing song, a prayerful melody to the True God of my life.

Rest Weightlessly in the Ocean of My Love

Psalm 42:5 (VOICE) Why am I so overwrought? Why am I so disturbed? Why can’t I just hope in God? Despite all my emotions, I will believe and praise the One who saves me and is my life. 

Beloved, resist the urge to allow tumultuous emotions to weigh you down. Instead, rest weightlessly in the ocean of My love. I AM your heart’s desire, and I AM Ruwm Rosh – the lifter of your head. Look to Me, and let Me meet each need. 

I AM holy, beloved, and true to My word. Trust My heart for you. Press through with praise – regardless of circumstance, and see the outpouring of love I lavish upon the ones whose hearts seek fast after Me. Continue reading “Rest Weightlessly in the Ocean of My Love”

Unquenchable Fervor

Psalm 42:1 (VOICE) My soul is dry and thirsts for You, True God, as a deer thirsts for water.

Beloved, may your heart long for Me with an unquenchable fervor. May you soak in My presence as if your life depends on it – because it does. May your pursuit of Me be relentless, just as Mine is for you. And may you find peace in My presence, for it is there for you. 

Where else would you go to assuage your desire? For no person or earthly thing can satisfy the longing in your soul. None but Me, beloved. So resist the urge to look to poor substitutes, and saturate yourself in the fullness of My love.  Continue reading “Unquenchable Fervor”

YHVH Gibbor Milchamah (the Lord Mighty in Battle)

Psalm 24:8 (VOICE) Who is the glorious King? The Eternal who is powerful and mightily equipped for battle.

Beloved, rejoice for I AM the Lord of Hosts – YHVH Tsaba, the Lord mighty in battle – YHVH Gibbor Milchamah. Nothing defeats Me. Stand fast by My side and trust Me, refusing to allow your faith to waver, for you know My name. 

Beloved, is anything to hard for Me? Is anything beyond My reach? Refuse to allow circumstances or intimidation tactics from the enemy to induce fear or doubt. I AM the victorious One and you stand with Me.

Fly with Me

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.
