Matthew 6:27 (CSB) Can any of you add one moment to his life-span by worrying?
Beloved, refuse to allow the enemy to tempt you into useless cycles of fruitless energy by worrying. Trust in Me. I AM sovereign. I AM almighty. Nothing shocks or surprises Me. Nothing catches Me off guard. Rest in that knowledge.
You don’t have to be in control or even try to understand all the why’s of a situation, you can simply rest knowing that One who is for you does know, and trust Me to lead, guide, and protect you in the midst. Lean on Me. Rest in Me. Be at peace.
Psalm 34:8 (NOG) Taste and see that Yahweh is good. Blessed is the person who takes refuge in him.
Beloved, taste and see that I AM good. Evidence of My goodness surrounds you. Try Me. Put your faith in Me and release the outcome. See how I move. I AM good and I love you. Blessed are those who rest in Me.
I AM your rock and your firm foundation. I AM unshakable and immovable. Find shelter under My wings. Let Me be your hiding place. Let Me be the one you run to. Taste and see, beloved. I AM faithful to the end.
Numbers 4:16 (GW) “Eleazar, son of the priest Aaron, will be in charge of the oil for the lamps, the sweet-smelling incense, the daily grain offering, and the anointing oil. He is in charge of the whole tent and everything in it, the holy place and its contents.”
Beloved, you are called to be a priest – one who surrenders their life in service to Me – and part of a priest’s role is to facilitate My presence – the oil of My anointing – that My glory might burn brightly. Another part is that you lead worship by example, not just in praise, but in lifestyles of worship – heart fixed on Me – sacrificial particularly in the sense of surrendering control to Me (a holy offering).
As you release the reins of your life to Me, you demonstrate to others I AM trustworthy. No word need be spoken – I assure you, people see. Not only do they see, but they watch to see how I will respond. It is then they see My love and the inner strength, peace, and joy I bring. So live well, beloved, and walk in the priestly role you’ve been called to. Continue reading “Priestly Role, a Surrendered Life”
Psalm 16:11 (VOICE) …You direct me on the path that leads to a beautiful life. As I walk with You, the pleasures are never-ending, and I know true joy and contentment.
Beloved, My plans for you are beautiful and will fill you with more contentment than you can begin to imagine. Release yourself completely to My care and My loving hands. My plans for you are good plans – plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans for hope and a future.
Allow Me to direct your path. Even in the trials, joy will steady you as you willingly yield to Me. Beautiful is the life I have for you. Rejoice in it and in how I move in and through you, beloved. Continue reading “Beautiful Life”
Revelation 4:3 (VOICE) The One enthroned gleamed like jasper and carnelian, and a rainbow encircled the throne with an emerald glow.
Beloved, I AM radiant. Shining in splendor. Enthroned above all. Swirls of color surround me. Light emanates from Me. I AM glorious. See Me and be moved in holy awe. Rightly see Me. Allow your spirit to discern and embrace My throne room. With your spiritual eyes see the glory of this place. Hear the voices crying, “Holy! Holy! Holy!” Understand My grandeur and majesty. Know Me as I AM.
Having seen Me as I truly am, would you try to put Me in a box? Would you try to contain or control Me? Beloved, I cannot be manipulated or controlled. Reject the temptation to make Me smaller so you can fully comprehend Me. I AM beyond comprehension – and that is good. I AM moving in ways you can’t see or imagine – and that is good. I AM bigger than you know – and that is good. I AM limitless! I know no bounds. Nothing is too great for Me for I AM greater than all. I AM.
Exodus 14:20 (VOICE) The cloud pillar took its position between Egypt’s and Israel’s camps. The cloud cast darkness by day yet it lit up the sky by night. As a result, the Egyptians never got close to the Israelites the entire night.
For behold My presence protects and guards you. You don’t have to worry who has you covered because the answer is Me. It is I who will defend you. Do not step into My path to try to “help” for in doing so you are simply taking matters into your own hands. The things that concern you, concern Me. Your life is in My hands, you placed it there when you gave your life to Me. Trust Me to cover you.
Your reputation is Mine, and I have said that every tongue that rises against you will be judged (Isaiah 54:17); beloved, do not defend yourself to others – it is My job and I do it happily. Simply keep your eyes fixed on Me and My call for your life; walk it out and leave the rest to Me.
Isaiah 54:17 (VOICE) But no instrument forged against you will be allowed to hurt you, and no voice raised to condemn you will successfully prosecute you. It’s that simple; this is how it will be for the servants of the Eternal; I will vindicate them.
