Isaiah 46:10 (VOICE) From the beginning I declare how things will end; from times long past, I tell what is yet to be, saying: “My intentions will come to pass. I will make things happen as I determine they should.”
Beloved, trust My timing. Nothing happens by accident or without My notice, and nothing is beyond My care. Regardless of the enemy’s ploys, I will prevail. Trust Me at My word for I AM faithful and I AM good.
I work all things for good, so even in the moments you cannot see My hand, trust Me to move. Trust Me to heal. Trust Me to restore. Trust Me to work through every hurt, rejection, and pain and bring forth life. Beloved, My word will not return void, rather I watch over it to ensure each and every promise comes to pass. Trust your times in My hands.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NKJV) To everything [there is] a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:
Beloved, resist the urge to cling to a moment if I AM drawing it to a close. Trust that – though yet unknown to you – the next season will be as beautiful and needful as the last, and each in their own unique way.
Celebrate the end. Give honor to the One who ordained it. But refuse to cling to that which is complete, instead embracing the hope of what is to come. Beloved, enjoy the sunset and await the dawn. I AM the beginning and the end. I AM the bringer of life. Hope in Me. Continue reading “Enjoy the Sunset and Await the Dawn”

I AM the King of Glory and Lord of All. I AM the Lord of Hosts – the Commander of Heavenly Armies – the vast hosts of Heaven stand at My ready. I AM sovereign.
In our intimacy, do not make Me small in your eyes – a comfortable little god you can keep in your pocket and pull out on a bad day. I AM far bigger and far greater, and I AM not one to be manipulated or controlled. I fiercely protect those I love, and I will not be mocked. See Me as I AM. Worship Me and know Me. Intentionally keep your heart in a position of reverential awe. I AM worthy.

Continue reading “Remind Yourself of My Faithfulness”

You are never a bother or an inconvenience. Everything that matters to you, matters to Me because YOU matter to Me. You are irreplaceable, priceless, My heart’s desire. I cannot get enough.

Genesis 29:30 (VOICE) Then Jacob also slept with Rachel, and he clearly loved Rachel more than Leah…
Beloved, man’s choice and My choice often don’t align. Refuse to look to the acceptance of man to gauge your worth. Focus on Me and receive My attentions. Allow My fervor and favor to feed your heart and shape your understanding of who you are – for you are loved more deeply than you can begin to know.
Man does not see or judge as I do. My judgment is perfect. My approval is all you need. Honor and favor come from Me alone. Refuse the temptation to court the fickle favor of man for it will come and go – changing like a breeze – but Mine is steadfast forevermore. Continue reading “My Choice and My Acceptance”
1 Peter 2:1 (TLB) So get rid of your feelings of hatred. Don’t just pretend to be good! Be done with dishonesty and jealousy and talking about others behind their backs.
Beloved, refuse to indulge in satisfying your flesh by allowing hatred, bitterness, and unforgiveness to fester nor by allowing the fruit thereof to flourish. You are children of God and of the light, and knowing and having experienced Me you are inherently different than the world, no longer slaves to emotion.
You are no longer driven by reaction. Be one who chooses how to respond to any circumstance or situation with My heart and reflecting My character. Beloved, bear fruit. I have not promised it would be easy, but I AM with you and will never leave you. Let your godly character and the fruit of My Spirit shine like the sun for all to see. You have already been given what you need, radiate love and life.
2 Chronicles 21:7 (NET) But the LORD was unwilling to destroy David’s dynasty because of the promise he had made to give David a perpetual dynasty.
Beloved, even in the face of unrighteousness, My word and My promises are steadfast. I AM the Eternal One, the beginning and the end, and I AM relentlessly faithful. I do not promise anything lightly, for My integrity is flawless and I know what carrying out My word will entail.
Unlike man – who may justify breaking their word under extenuating circumstances – I never do. I AM perpetually faithful. When My children are unfaithful, I AM still faithful. And when their children and children’s children are rebellious and pursue evil, still I remain true to the promises I have made to those who love Me. In every season and every circumstance, I AM faithful.
2 Chronicles 20:33 (AMPC) But the high places [of idolatry] were not taken away, for the people had not yet set their hearts on their fathers’ God.
Beloved, ask Me to show you the idols in your life that you simply don’t see. Too often My people overlook the high places that have been in place for generations, allowing them to simply be part of the landscape, but My desire for you – My perfect will – is for them to be seen and torn down. Refuse to overlook the high places.
I AM the only One worthy of your worship and I AM a jealous God, I have no desire to share your affections with idols. Seek your heart, beloved, and do so in truth, allowing Me to show you things you’re holding above or apart from Me. I know your desire is to be single minded towards Me, so open your heart and still your mind and be willing for Me to bring change. It is change that will heal.
