Exodus 15:3 (AMP) The Lord is a warrior; The Lord is His name.
Beloved, I will not retreat from a fight. I battle for those I love because I deem you worthy. You are precious and prized – the apple of My eye, and when someone hurts you, it hurts Me. So leave justice in My hands, for only My judgment is righteous.
You can trust in Me. You can trust your heart in My care. Give yourself to me fully – without holding back, and watch how I lavish My love upon you. I AM Lord of all. I AM.
Matthew 3:17 (VOICE) Voice from Heaven: This is My Son, whom I love; this is the Apple of My eye; with Him I am well pleased.
Beloved, there is nothing I wouldn’t do to bless you. You are the apple of My eye – more precious to Me than words can express, such is the depth of My love for you. But I will not thoughtlessly give you that which will harm you.
So ask Me for what you will without reservation, but then trust Me to do what is best. Resist the urge to assign negative motives or heart intentions to My decisions, and instead remember that I see all and I know all, therefore My judgment is perfect. And above all, remember I move from love.
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”
Exodus 34:14 (VOICE) because you must not worship any god except for Me. My name is Jealous, and I am a jealous God.
Beloved, I do not compromise and I will not share. You are Mine, and your fidelity – your steadfast devotion to Me and Me alone – is of the utmost importance to Me. I AM the Lord your God. I will not share you with another.
To one who loves Me this fierce possession feels like the most ardent embrace. It is not burdensome or overwhelming. In the same way a husband demands purity and constancy from his wife, and a wife who adores her husband freely gives this burdenless commitment, so those who are passionate about Me will not hesitate to remain steadfast and singleminded in their love for Me. It is their joy to give so priceless a gift to One whom they adore.
But to those who claim devotion but who are burdened by My just claim to their heart, they must reevaluate to see if they truly have given it to Me. As I have said, I wish that you were hot or cold, but the lukewarm I will spew out of My mouth. So check your heart, beloved. Choose one side or the other. And if you’ve chosen Mine, embrace the fullness of My jealous love, for I AM El Qanna, the Jealous God. Continue reading “El Qanna (Jealous God)”
Song of Solomon 8:7 (VOICE) No amount of water can quench love; a raging flood cannot drown it out…
Beloved, burn with a passion that refuses to be quenched. No trial or perceived lack can cause you to doubt the intensity of your feelings for Me. The actions of others cannot shift your gaze, but rather your wholehearted love is steadfast and sure.
Be ardent, beloved. Singleminded and unwavering in your affection. Then allow your actions to flow from this foundation of love, for when you love Me to a point of near obsession, you cannot hate or resent My creation. Mirroring My heart of grace and compassion becomes easier because your heart is fixed on Me.
In the same way, your work will flow from a heart of love rather than obligation. You’ll know you have no need to earn My affection because it is already most assuredly yours. Then the joy of partnering with Me truly is a joy and not a burden. So flow from a place of love and burn with unquenchable passion for Me. Continue reading “Unquenchable Passion”
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.
Song of Solomon 8:7 (VOICE) …If a person tried to exchange all of his wealth for love, then he would be surely rejected.
Beloved, you cannot buy My love anymore than I can gain your constancy through gifts. A love available for purchase is no love at all. So if your love is conditional upon My blessings, it is not truly love.
Love stands in the face of trials and adversity. Love is immovable and unchangeable. True love is unconditional and constant. That is the love I have lavished on you. Will you lavish the same upon Me?
Song of Solomon 8:7 (VOICE) No amount of water can quench love; a raging flood cannot drown it out. If a person tried to exchange all of his wealth for love, then he would be surely rejected.
Song of Solomon 8:6 (VOICE) Set me as a seal over your heart; wear me as an emblem on your arm For love is as strong as death, and jealousy is as relentless as the grave. Love flares up like a blazing fire, a very ardent flame.
Beloved, be overcome with devotion for Me. I AM the lover of your soul, the One your heart desires – the only One who can truly fulfill you. Hunger for Me, as I ardently burn for you. Nothing can diminish My love for you, and let nothing dampen your fiery passion for Me.
Wear My love like a brand – a mark clearly identifying you as belonging to Me. For you do. And nothing can break that covenant connection. Let the world see and know, for I will not share your affections, beloved. You have given yourself to Me, so you are indeed Mine.
John 3:16 (VOICE) For God expressed His love for the world in this way: He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not face everlasting destruction, but will have everlasting life.
Beloved, My love for you is so great there is nothing I’d hold back from you. My actions have proved that out again and again. So resist the urge to doubt Me now – to think the situations so important to you are somehow going unnoticed by Me.
I see. I AM El Roi – the God who sees, and nothing escapes My notice. Trust My love. Trust My heart for you. Rest in the shadow of My wings, for you are My beloved, and I AM your God.
Romans 8:38-39 (VOICE) For I have every confidence that nothing—not death, life, heavenly messengers, dark spirits, the present, the future, spiritual powers, height, depth, nor any created thing—can come between us and the love of God revealed in the Anointed, Jesus our Lord.
Beloved, nothing can separate you from My love. I AM steadfast and immovable – bedrock, a firm foundation for you. No shortcoming or poor choice will scare Me off or cause Me to turn away. I AM relentless in My love for you.
I will not slumber and I do not sleep. My exquisite longing for you is unending. Breathe Me in, beloved. Clutch Me tightly to your chest. Refuse to allow anyone or anything to cause separation between us. I AM yours, beloved, and you are Mine.
