Luke 17:1-3 (GW) …how horrible it will be for the person who causes someone to lose his faith! It would be best for that person to be thrown into the sea with a large stone hung around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to lose his faith. So watch yourselves!…
Beloved, be mindful of your actions and how they affect others. Yes, you each have personal responsibility for your choices, but you do not want to be the one to cause someone to stumble or fall away just as you don’t want someone to cause you to stumble or fall away.
Therefore it is vital you be like Me. Love like Me. Accurately reflect Me. This cannot be stressed enough. I see the full impact of careless words and thoughtless actions, and if you could fully grasp the effect they have you would feel the weight of them. They are not to be taken lightly.
My Word is there to instruct you in how to live. Beloved, eat it as though you were a starving man. It is good and nourishing to your soul. It brings forth life and teaches you to be like Me. So immerse yourself. Be saturated by the water of My word that you might pour out that living water in a dry and thirsty land.
Matthew 18:13-14 (GW) I can guarantee this truth: If he finds it, he is happier about it than about the 99 that have not strayed. In the same way, your Father in heaven does not want one of these little ones to be lost.
Beloved, I desire that not one would be lost. I AM not angry at those who have wandered away, I only long for their return. Will you walk in love and accurately reflect My heart so My beloveds know I ache for them? Will you withhold judgment, instead extending mercy and understanding? Will you resist the urge to indulge in self-righteousness and pride and instead be humble, long-suffering, compassionate, and full of grace? You are made in My image, reflect Me accurately.
Refuse to be the prodigal’s older brother – resentful of the Father’s love for the one who’d gone astray. Love in no way excuses sin, it simply says the person and their heart is more important. Be known by your love. Draw them home by your love. Let love change them. Let love change you. Let love supersede all.
Isaiah 45:3 (JUB) And I will give thee the hidden treasures and the well-guarded secrets that thou may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who gives thee thy name.
Beloved, nothing is hidden from Me. I haven’t lost anything nor will I ever struggle to put something in your hand. I AM sovereign. Be a yielded vessel and truly surrender all you have to Me that I may position you and equip you as I desire. Hold Me and relationship with Me dearest of all.
I will whisper to you secret things you have not known. I will supernaturally provide for you. I will move in and through you in ways you cannot imagine. See with My eyes and hear with My heart. Know that each soul is more valuable to Me than any amount of silver. Discern true worth and refuse to be sucked in by the world’s system. Allow Me to move. Take the limits off your expectations of Me and give Me room to perform.
Job 33:15-16 (AMP) In a dream, a vision of the night [one may hear God’s voice], When deep sleep falls on men While slumbering upon the bed, Then He opens the ears of men And seals their instruction,
Beloved, hear My whispers as you sleep. Recognize My heart. Know My voice. Feel My touch. Receive My wisdom. Heed My warnings. Feel My hand upon you as I seal My instruction in your heart. Yield to My direction. Hold fast when you awaken. Refuse to allow My download to be stolen or dismissed.
I have opened the ears of your heart. You can hear Me, beloved. Choose to be open and rest. Choose to listen. I AM moving as you sleep. I never slumber, I never sleep. I AM always aware of you and the things pertaining to you. So rest in Me, knowing I AM covering you. Healing and speaking. Protecting and refreshing.
Open your heart to hear My voice as your flesh is silent and your natural mind is not spinning or fighting My words with your own sense of logic or understanding. Hear Me, beloved. Receive, understand, and yield. Continue reading “Hear Me Even in Your Sleep”
Philippians 1:9 (TLV) Now this I pray, that your love might overflow still more and more in knowledge and depth of discernment,
Beloved, as you operate in love I will open your eyes and show you things you otherwise wouldn’t see. There are things you can only discern when you’re filtering through a loving gaze. Operate in love and be unoffendable. Extend much grace. Be rich in mercy. Stifle pride and your “right” to respond a particular way, and instead be like Me.
Refuse to be the wicked servant, holding a debt over someone’s head that you yourself have been forgiven. Be like Me. Respond like Me. Be patient and long suffering. Let your love continually increase. Let your heart grow more and more like Mine. Let My love be shed abroad in your heart and may it increase your discernment exponentially. Continue reading “Operate in Love and Be Unoffendable”
Sitting in His presence quietly waiting to hear His voice. I hear the whisper, “Beloved.” I know that’s just the beginning of what He plans to say, and yet I get stuck there, feeling my throat begin to tighten and tears begin to well as I ponder the privilege it is for Him to call us – call me – by that name.
I am His beloved and He is mine. I know this intellectually, but most days what that actually means barely penetrates the surface. I am My beloved’s and My Beloved is mine. I hear Him whisper, “Yes. Yes, My love.” I know He’s encouraging me to let this sink in deeper, to let it be more than simply a saying written in Hebrew on a ring that never leaves my hand. To know. To truly know. Continue reading “Beloved”
Psalm 118:16 (VOICE) The mighty arm of the Eternal is raised in victory; the right hand of His has shown His power.”
Beloved, raise a shout of victory! We shall not be defeated. Sound a cry in declaration that we are victorious. Raise your voice! Do not be afraid that you will be put to shame, lean on Me. Trust in Me. I AM the God of heaven (El Shamayim) and earth, the Lord of Hosts (YHVH Sabaoth), the King of Glory (Melek Kabowd) – nothing is too hard for Me!
Rightly understand Who I AM and what I AM capable of. I AM the God who parted the sea, brought forth water from a rock, and sent manna from heaven. I make a way where there seems to be no way. Don’t focus on possible solutions YOU see in a situation, for I see things you do not. So simply focus on Me, on who I AM, and let your victory cry ring!
Psalm 118:14 (VOICE) He is my strength, and He is the reason I sing; He has been there to save me in every situation.
Beloved, praise Me in every situation. I AM your strength. I AM El Maowz (God your strength). Allow Me to strengthen you, beloved, regardless of circumstances. Praise Me. Let joy pour forth from deep in your soul because I AM worthy. Let your songs of love be a victory cry that you refuse to waver, that you trust Me implicitly.
I AM Yeshua (your salvation). My hand is extended to you, beloved. Take hold. Cling to Me. I AM strong and I will strengthen. We will stand fast together. The enemy cannot stand against us so cling and sing. Cling and sing, beloved. Your deliverance is here. Continue reading “Cling and Sing”
Psalm 118:13 (TLB) You did your best to kill me, O my enemy, but the Lord helped me.
Beloved, know I AM with you always. I AM YHVH Ezer, the Lord your helper. Though the enemy may relentlessly seek to kill, steal, and destroy, I WILL NOT leave you. I will fight for you and by your side. I have given My angels charge over you, to keep and protect you. I will snatch your feet from the net – the traps the enemy has laid for you WILL NOT succeed.
Lift up your eyes, beloved. Your help comes from Me. Never lose sight of Me. Keep your gaze fixed steadfastly. The storms may rage, but let nothing steal your attention for I AM greater than any storm or trial. Nothing is to strong for Me. For I AM YHVH. I AM the Lord. Continue reading “I AM YHVH Ezer (the Lord your helper)”
Psalm 84:10 (NIV) Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
Beloved, there is no place so sweet as My presence. I AM worth the time – worth the effort. The rest and refreshing that comes in My presence is deep and cleansing. Fight through the noise around you to find that quiet place of peace. I AM there. I AM waiting. I AM always with you.
Be hungry and thirsty for Me beloved. Be insatiable. I AM worth it. Just knowing Me is worth the blessings that pour forth from time with Me. I AM worth your pursuit. Find the time. Refuse to allow distractions to keep you from being with Me. I AM like air to you – necessary for life for I AM life. I AM the life giver. I AM the healer. I AM the refresher. I AM the Lover of Your Soul. Pursue Me. Continue reading “Pursue Me “
