Deuteronomy 7:9 (VOICE) I want you to know that the Eternal your God is the only true God. He’s the faithful God who keeps His covenants and shows loyal love for a thousand generations to those who in return love Him and keep His commands.
Beloved, will you be faithful? Will you write My Word upon your heart and act from its overflow? Will you choose to love sacrificially for Me? Will you put keeping My commands above the opinions of man and your own flawed judgment? I AM righteous. I AM holy. I AM worthy of your unbridled devotion. So choose Me. I AM your God.
I AM faithful and I AM true. I remember My promises and act upon them with perfect accuracy. I remember My faithful ones long after they have left the earth, and repay their faithfulness from generation to generation. I AM a good God. I AM the only true God, and I AM yours. Be intentional in your devotion to Me.

Simply respond in humble obedience trusting that your labor is not in vain and that My work will be accomplished in My perfect time.
In seed time and at harvest, I AM still God. Trust Me when the fruit is ripe and when the growth is occurring by faith beneath the surface. In every moment I AM at work and My presence is made known. Trust your hope in My hands, for I AM faithful.
Revelation 19:6 (AMP) Then I heard something like the shout of a vast multitude, and like the boom of many pounding waves, and like the roar of mighty peals of thunder, saying, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, [the Omnipotent, the Ruler of all] reigns.
Beloved, lift your voice and join in with heaven’s sound – all praise be to the One who is worthy! May your feet join in the beat and your arms join in the wave offering – hold nothing back, for victory belongs to the Lamb.

Be not afraid of the plans I have for you, for I will not leave you friendless nor ill-equipped for what lies ahead. I AM faithful to prepare you and supply your every need. Trust Me. Trust My heart for you. And trust Me to lead.

Numbers 23:20 (VOICE) Look here, I received a word of blessing, and He has spoken a blessing. I cannot take it back.
Beloved, My promises are yes and amen. I AM not capricious nor am I looking for reasons to change My mind. When I bless, I have blessed, and that blessing remains.
Resist the urge to be offended if the blessing is conditional, for I make the conditions known from the onset that you may choose rightly. Refuse to behave like a spoiled child who feels entitled to all life’s joys without care or responsibility.
What kind of Father would I be if I corrupted My children? I AM a good Father. So yes, some blessings come as a result of behavior, but also some come simply as a result of My generous love and desire to bless (like sunshine and rain).
So receive with gratitude all you have been given. Trust that I have reason for each thing I grant or withhold, release or delay. But you can rest assured that each decision is being made from a heart filled with love for you, and that even in the moments of trial I AM there. Continue reading “The Truth About Blessings”

I AM not one to let you down nor one to forget your needs – you are precious to Me and ever on My mind. I AM not a man who might lie, nor do I change My mind – what I have said, will come to pass.
Be intentional to align with My Word, and to stand in unalterable expectation of its fulfillment, for it is surer than the coming sunrise. Nothing can stand against Me and remain. If I AM for you, none can stand against you. So stand with Me and refuse to be moved.
