Boldness Birthed in the Quiet Place

Acts‬ ‭4:31‬ ‭(AMP) And when they had prayed, the place where they were meeting together was shaken [a sign of God’s presence]; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness and courage.

Beloved, boldness is birthed in the quiet place. Godly boldness doesn’t come from being brash or needing to be the center of attention. It is birthed in a place of yielded humility – one of beautiful intimacy with Me.

In intimacy, My nature is increasingly revealed. And as I’m known, faith in Me is the result. And from that firm foundation of faith, grows a holy boldness that is earth-shaking. When I meet with My children, they cannot help but be changed. And those who have been radically changed cannot keep it to themselves because such truth is too beautiful not to share.

So meet with Me. Yield in humility. Allow Me to shake you – to realign you and empower you for My good work. Then watch what I will do through you as we change the world together. Continue reading “Boldness Birthed in the Quiet Place”

Yield and Wield

Luke 12:48 (VOICE) …If you are given much, much will be required of you. If much is entrusted to you, much will be expected of you.

Beloved, in order to wield My strength, you must yield to Me. Only My judgment is perfect, and My right hand wields much power. That power cannot be entrusted to those who operate from their own flawed sense of right, but rather those who yield to Me, will wield authority. 

Resist the urge to covet the authority you see others walk in, for you do not know the cost that was required. Rather focus on yourself, and on surrendering more and more fully to Me. Then trust I will move through you in My perfect timing. Yield and wield, beloved. Yield and wield.

Rending the Heavens with Humility

Proverbs 22:4 (TPT) Laying your life down in tender surrender before the Lord will bring life, prosperity, and honor as your reward.

Beloved, surrender your will to Mine. Lay it down as a humble, heartfelt offering before the One who made you. True power and authority does not come in human strength, but in your ability to yield to the One who wields all power – the One who is sovereign: Me.

So rend the heavens with humility as you lay down your life as a pleasing offering before Me. Then watch as I move in power – in and through you – bringing life, prosperity, and honor to the one who chose to honor Me first. Delight in Me and I will give you the desires of your heart, beloved. So delight in Me.

Put Your Trust in Me

Isaiah 43:1 (AMP) But now, this is what the Lord, your Creator says, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you [from captivity]; I have called you by name; you are Mine!

Beloved, what have you to fear? For you are Mine. I made you. I know your innermost parts. Nothing about you is secret from Me. I AM fully able to protect and support My children. So rest in and rely on Me. 

The enemy’s plans are not a mystery to Me. Nor do his forces exceed Mine. I AM all-powerful and have all the hosts of heaven at My command. Is anything too hard for Me? Resist the urge to lean on your own strength, and instead put your trust in Me.

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. 

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.

My Right Hand

Psalm 44:3 (VOICE) They did not win the land with their swords. It wasn’t their strength that won them victory. It was Your strength —Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your presence that gave them success, for You loved them.

Beloved, nothing is too hard for Me. Victory is not won by your own strength, but by your ability to rest in Me and Mine. I AM the Lord victorious. I AM El Gibbor, the mighty God. Hide in the shadow of My wing. 

Run to Me, your strong tower. I AM your refuge of strength – a very present help in times of trouble, and a place of refreshing in the times of plenty. Cling to Me and trust My right hand to protect and provide. 

Fiery Baptism of My Love

Matthew 3:11 (GW) I baptize you with water so that you will change the way you think and act. But the one who comes after me is more powerful than I. I am not worthy to remove his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Beloved, be baptized in My Spirit and My love’s refining fire. You cannot encounter the living God and walk away unchanged. By My breath the dead are raised. By My Spirit you speak in unknown tongues. By My fire you are purified. 

Be immersed in My powerful presence and be set free. Embrace My wonderworking touch and be strengthened and renewed. I AM the one who brings life, and brings it in abundance. Look to Me, and receive the fiery baptism of My love.

My Dominion is Everlasting

Psalm 145:13 (VOICE) Your kingdom will never end; Your rule will endure forever. [You are faithful to Your promise, and Your acts are marked with grace.]

Beloved, My dominion is everlasting. My sovereignty knows no end. There is no promise I will be unable to fulfill or whose outcome is beyond My reach. Rest in My hands. Trust your heart and hopes and dreams to Me.

Will I ignore the pleas of My children? Am I a bad father who neglects those he is called to cover and protect? Surely not! I AM slow to anger and rich in mercy, and I keep My promises from generation to generation. Trust yourself in My hands.

Adon Olam (Master of the World/Sovereign of the Universe)

Matthew 6:13 (KJV) …For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Beloved, see Me for who I AM: Lord of all, Adon Olam – the Master of the World, Sovereign of the Universe – and I AM the ultimate authority. See Me as I AM, for in doing so your faith will rise. And allow that faith to increase your understanding that truly nothing is too difficult for Me.

So declare the truth of who I AM and bring praise to My holy name. Give honor to Me, beloved, and watch how I move. See My power on display. Have eyes to see the miracles both great and small. I AM able to do abundantly above all you can ask or think, for I AM God. Continue reading “Adon Olam (Master of the World/Sovereign of the Universe)”
