Season of Expectation

There is a godly expectancy that is joyous – filled with incredible expectation of the Father’s fulfillment of redemption, the weight of the world literally lifts as we encounter His Son. And in that moment, the heavy yoke we tend to carry is lifted and there is such a light, airy – almost weightless – sensation that makes us want to dance and worship with so much joy and thankfulness. His burdens are light as a feather. What great expectations! Continue reading “Season of Expectation”

Cherished

Apple of His Eye – Dyed4you Art

See yourself as the cherished one that you are in My eyes.  Only when you see yourself from that view can you began to operate as Mine.  I have seen you from the very beginning and in your worst moments I did not turn away.  I was there wiping those tears away with My own hand, and pleading with you to seek Me for reassurance.  You are more important to Me than the majestic angels or the brightest star.  I know every part of you – even those areas you try to hide away.  Knowing all those things about you, does not for one second stop or halt My great love for you.  In fact, I love you more and more as time goes on. Each time you seek Me about something, I’m thrilled for a chance to commune with you.  I love you so much that I gave of Myself (in My Son) to restore the relationship that was lost so long ago in the Garden.   Continue reading “Cherished”

A Time of Water and Fruit

Spring up oh well! Tap into the store house, the reservoir that never runs dry. It is there. Remove the mindsets that say it’s too hard, that it’s impossible to attain. It is in front of you. Each step brings you closer to the well. Each step removes the constrictions, the mindsets, the perceptions, the fears that keep you blinded to the well of living water that never runs dry. It is there for the taking. Remove the blindfold, remove the blindfold, REMOVE THE BLINDFOLD. (Firm tone) Continue reading “A Time of Water and Fruit”

Guard Your Wellspring

Rivers of Living Water – Dyed4you Art

Beloved, you are called to be a conduit. Remember that as God pours out, you receive, and then in turn you pour out to others around you. Therefore, it is vital to bear in mind the state of your vessel. For its condition will flavor all that which you pour forth. Just as the flavor water takes when poured from glass, metal, and plastic are each different, so His flow pouring through you will take on your “flavor.” Continue reading “Guard Your Wellspring”

Speak Life (Ezekiel 37)

James 3:9-11 (VOICE) Ironically this same tongue can be both an instrument of blessing to our Lord and Father and a weapon that hurls curses upon others who are created in God’s own image. One mouth streams forth both blessings and curses. My brothers and sisters, this is not how it should be. Does a spring gush crystal clear freshwater and moments later spurt out bitter salt water?

Beloved, would you be a vessel for darkness? And yet the temptation to speak the things of darkness into existence is strong, but you are stronger. So refuse to give in to bitterness and anger, jealousy and hatred, greed and destruction. Look to the root that wants to bear such fruit and invite Me to move. Then as you trust My sovereignty, watch as I bring forth beauty from ashes and give joy for mourning. Continue reading “Speak Life (Ezekiel 37)”

New Life is Bursting Forth

Beloved, refuse to resist the “prescribed burns” of My holy fire. In the same way that farmers will burn their fields to the ground to encourage enriched regrowth, so will I bring what appears to be brutal devastation for the purpose of bringing forth new life. This seeming destruction may feel at odds with My character, which you know to be good, but when you embrace the fiery season, it becomes more life-giving than you could begin to imagine. Continue reading “New Life is Bursting Forth”

Blessing from Obedience

When you yield yourself to be My vessel, it ministers not only to the one you pour out to, but to you as well. So pour out from your overflow with generosity and wisdom. Trust My direction on when to speak and when to be silent. Resist the urge to defend that which I have given you to say, instead allowing My words to stand on their own. For I will not beg for someone to believe Me, nor will I pressure them to take action on My counsel.  Continue reading “Blessing from Obedience”
