Isaiah 40:31 (AMP) But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] Will gain new strength and renew their power…
Beloved, as you tarry with Me, I will refresh and renew – I will sooth you with balm and heal your heart. I will strengthen and encourage you. I will build you up and empower you.
Waiting on Me is no passive activity, much happens and much is accomplished even as you “waste” your time on Me. So pour it out and watch as I pour back – pressed down, shaken together, and overflowing, for I AM a loving Father and I lavish blessings upon My children. Have eyes to see.

Isaiah 40:31 (AMP) But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him]…
Beloved, wait on Me. No time is wasted when it is spent in My presence. So “waste” your life on Me. Yield your heart, your thoughts, your dreams. Sit in My presence. Open your heart wide. And wait.
Trust that I will meet you there. Know that I am lavishing you with My love and attention. Know that each moment with you is precious to Me, for you are My beloved and it pleases Me beyond measure when you choose to tarry with Me. Continue reading “Tarry with Me”
Psalm 84:2 (VOICE) How I long to be there —my soul is spent, wanting, waiting to walk in the courts of the Eternal. My whole being sings joyfully to the living God.
Beloved, spend your life in a place of worship. Dwell in there. Draw heaven into earth. Be a portal – a vessel for Me to flow through. Allow Me to change the world through you.
As you yield your heart of worship, watch as I fling wide the windows of heaven and pour forth that which you have not known and cannot explain. Be ready to receive, beloved, for what I have in store is good. Continue reading “Be a Portal”
1 John 4:16 (TPT) We have come into an intimate experience with God’s love, and we trust in the love he has for us. God is love! Those who are living in love are living in God, and God lives through them.
Beloved, trust My love for you. Relish and delight in it. Be intentional to see all the ways I lavish you with My affections. I know your heart and I know it well, for it is precious to Me. Abide in this place of intimacy with Me – cocooned in the safety of My heart for you.
Allow My love to penetrate and saturate, and live as one with a keen understanding of being inherently worth loving – someone worth pursuing, someone worth giving it all for, for that indeed is My heart for you. And as you walk in the confidence that My love inspires, you will change the lives of those around you, and they will know Me more simply by knowing you.
Psalm 84:10 (TPT) For just one day of intimacy with you is like a thousand days of joy rolled into one! I’d rather stand at the threshold in front of the Gate Beautiful, ready to go in and worship my God, than to live my life without you in the most beautiful palace of the wicked.
Beloved, open your eyes and behold My beauty. Be filled and completely saturated in My presence. Lift your voice in a song of praise, and bow low before your King in awe and reverence, for I AM worthy.
Abide in this place. Let the song of heaven surround you. Dig in deep, and flourish in My house. Life bursting forth all around you and burgeoning forth within you. Cultivate this ground. Cultivate this space. Dwell with Me, flourish, and pour out from the overflow.
Psalm 96:6 (TPT) Breathtaking brilliance and awe-inspiring majesty radiate from his shining presence. His stunning beauty overwhelms all who come before him.
Beloved, abide in My presence. Be overcome by My glory. Allow the beauty of My majesty to stir within you greatness and inspiration. Let My anointing drip down like rain from heaven over you – saturating and bringing life.
Reflect Me, precious one. You are made in My image. My children stand like fields of glory reflecting My face and bearing My name. Refuse to hold back. Choose to be who I made you to be, for you are lovely beyond description and Mine forevermore.
Song of Songs 2:3 (TPT) My beloved is to me the most fragrant apple tree— he stands above the sons of men. Sitting under his grace-shadow, I blossom in his shade, enjoying the sweet taste of his pleasant, delicious fruit, resting with delight where his glory never fades.
Beloved, tarry with Me and partake of My fruits, for they are rich and nourishing and pleasing to enjoying. Luxuriate in My presence, and take delight in Me. Allow My shadow to protect and cover you as you rest and abide in Me.
Though you may seek Me with fervor each day for the rest of your life, I will ever have new depths for you to plumb and fresh revelation to impart. I AM limitless. Just when you think you may be at a place of full understanding, I open up a new aspect of Myself for you to enjoy, so delight in Me for I AM enough.
So, beloved, feast on My fruit, for it is sweet and is the foundation of life. In Me there is no lack. Delight in My abundance and the pleasure My love brings, for only I can satisfy so make your home in Me.
Psalm 91:1 (TPT) When you sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai, you are hidden in the strength of God Most High.
Beloved, hover in My presence. Rest under My covering. In Me will you find peace. In Me will you find healing. And in Me will you find joy, safety, and so much more. So rest in Me, refusing to be drawn away.
Beloved, the choice is yours: to hover close or to step out from under My wings. Be mindful of the consequences of both and be intentional to choose wisely. I will not force you to seek My presence and protection, but I long to lavish you with it. I never grow tired of you or weary of your needs.
So tarry with Me, be intentional to stay close. Just as a child might cling to a parent for a feeling of safety, so you should remain with Me – your heart ever tarrying, clinging tightly to Me because in Me you find your hope and your refuge. Find your strength in Me.
Song of Songs 4:10 (TPT) How satisfying to me, my equal, my bride. Your love is my finest wine—intoxicating and thrilling. And your sweet, perfumed praises—so exotic, so pleasing.
Beloved, do you know how you move Me? Do you know how your affections minister to My heart? My love for you is powerful and overwhelming, but surely you must know that yours is equally affecting to Me. You are My deepest desire – the apple of My eye, for you to choose Me and pursue Me is the sweetest of gifts!
Let’s stay enthralled with one another – just as newlyweds exist in a place all their own even in a crowded room. Let’s abide in that place where nothing can intervene – where our gazes stay locked together even as the world goes on around us and life’s distractions won’t steal the focus. Come, beloved, and get lost in love with Me. Continue reading “Lost in Love”
Song of Songs 1:3 (TPT) Your presence releases a fragrance so pleasing— over and over poured out. For your lovely name is “Flowing Oil.” No wonder the brides-to-be adore you.
Beloved, allow Me to invade your senses. Be still and pause in My presence. Wait on Me to make Myself known. Smell My sweet fragrance and allow the flow of My Spirit – My anointing – to coat you with precious oil as thick as honey.
May it stick to you as you move on with your activities, allowing Me to remain tangibly close to My precious one, and continually reminding you of the sweetness of our fellowship. Abide with Me, and keep Me in your focus all day everyday, for I AM with you always.
