In my desire to always have a heart of repentance, my constant prayer to be cleansed, my cry to be transformed more into Jesus’ image, and by my intentional choice to remain watchful of how I live and represent my God – even in doing all that, I may come upon something that rears its head. Something that I thought was out of the way – healed and dealt with. Another layer of my soul has revealed something that is still present from events of the past that are in need of attention. As I bring these things to the Lord, He is faithful to continue to work on these layers of my inner being. He’s ever so careful and gentle in dealing with me one layer at a time.

Psalm 18:17 (TPT) Even though I was helpless in the hands of my hateful, strong enemy, you were good to deliver me.
Beloved, I will not leave you in a pit of despair. I will always extend My hand and offer a means of escape. So grab hold and refuse to let go. I AM good and faithful and true. I AM Palet, your deliverer – your rock and your fortress. You are not helpless when you are resting in Me.
So choose to give thanks for My mighty hand. And resist the urge to believe the lies that you are worthless and alone. Instead listen to My truth, for I AM a good Father, and I protect those who are My own. And, beloved, you are Mine. Continue reading “Palet (Deliverer)”
Revelation 12:4 (AMP) And his tail swept [across the sky] and dragged away a third of the stars of heaven and flung them to the earth. And the dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child.
Be mindful beloved, that the evil one is always waiting to steal your fruit and destroy your inheritance. And yet, victory is already in your hand. Be aware, but not overwhelmed. Refuse to be intimidated or to surrender to fear. Stand tall and be steadfast, victory is assured.
Trust My Spirit to lead and instruct. Stay in the flow. Nothing is too hard for Me. The enemy of your soul will not overtake you, refuse to allow him to distract your gaze, press into Me. Together we will fight. Together we will succeed. Like a dragon slayer of old, no foe is too great to defeat. I AM with you.
I AM the Waymaker
Isaiah 43:16 (TLB) I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters, making a path right through the sea.
Beloved, I AM the Waymaker. You need not be concerned as to how or why, just know I AM. In times of trouble, look to Me. As you do – as your faith and trust in Me is made evident in your actions and your praise – I AM lifted up. Like a standard of victory before a contending army, I AM YHVH Nissi. I AM the Lord your banner. Who can stand against Me?
I AM the Lord of the breakthrough and the restorer of your souls. I jealously guard you and love you beyond your wildest imaginings. I AM good. Refuse to be discouraged. Refuse to be impressed with the attacks that the enemy launches, refuse him the praise of acknowledgment and fix your eyes on Me, the author and finisher of your faith. Behold, I’m doing a new thing, watch as I bring the breakthrough. Continue reading “I AM the Waymaker”
Palet, Your Deliverer
Psalm 32:7 (AMP) You are my hiding place; You, Lord, protect me from trouble; You surround me with songs and shouts of deliverance. Selah.
Beloved, there is no situation so severe I cannot rescue you. I AM Palet, the Deliverer – your very present help in times of trouble. I walk with you through the storm, and I comfort you with My presence.
Look to Me. Regardless of the turmoil surrounding you, I AM your peace, your hiding place – the One who never leaves you or forsakes you. Rest in Me. Listen for the songs I sing over you, and set your mind on Me. Trust yourself in My hands, for I AM good.
Stand in Awe, Stand in Praise
Psalm 44:5 (TPT) Through your glorious name and your awesome power we can push through to any victory and defeat every enemy.
Beloved, no force is too strong for the King of Kings, the Lord of Heavenly Armies, God Almighty, the Great I AM. I AM your strength and your deliverer, the lifter of your head. Stand and praise, for My promises surround you like a shield, wholly reliable and forever true.
I AM awesome in holiness and My glory and power fill the earth. Stand in awe of Me. For I AM mighty in power, before Me demons will tremble and darkness must flee, and you know My name.
Walk in the Fullness of Freedom
2 Corinthians 3:17 (ESV) Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
Beloved, refuse to remain in bondage in any area. Allow nothing to have undue hold over you and the ability to influence you beyond what it wise and good. Ask Me for wisdom to find every toehold so that each and every one can be eradicated.
The price for your freedom has already been paid. Choose to walk in the fullness of that liberty so you might be all I’ve created and called you to be. Refuse to settle. Refuse to be content with mostly free and be complacent about walking out the rest of your freedom. The cost has been paid, and beloved, it is worth the effort.
I AM YHVH Shalom
2 Peter 2:9 (NLT) So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment.
Beloved, no circumstance is so complex that I’m unable to extract you from it. There are times I may walk you through for your character’s sake, but I AM always able. So trust Me and never hesitate to ask Me for help for I AM a very present help in times of trouble.
Take My hand and walk in peace – regardless of circumstance. I AM YHVH Shalom, the Lord your Peace, and I will never leave you or forsake you. My joy is your strength and it is always there for the taking because it is found in My presence and I will always receive you. No trouble is too great. No shame too heavy. Nothing will keep Me from My children nor lessen My love for them – and that means you.
1 Timothy 6:12 (NIV) Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
Beloved, stand fast in your faith regardless of the attacks launched against you. I AM with you and will never leave you or forsake you. I will not give you more than you can handle and I always provide a means of escape – so look for it.
In that moment where you feel all is lost, remember My grace is sufficient. You have all you need because you have Me. The hosts of heaven are cheering you on and stand ready at My command. Ask Me for help for I AM here and will never leave. Refuse to allow shame or hopelessness to defeat you. The strength that you need to push through is yours already, so press on, beloved. Press on.
Look to Me
Isaiah 33:22 (NLT) For the Lord is our judge, our lawgiver, and our king. He will care for us and save us.
Beloved, resist the urge to lean on yourself or to look to a human to care and provide. For ultimately I AM the one truly reliable and steadfast, and though I may work through those around you to minister to your needs, always remember I AM the source.
I AM Palet (your deliverer) and El Elyon (God Most High). I AM where your help comes from. I AM Elohim Mishpat (God of Judgment/Justice). I AM Elohim Emeth (True God/God of Truth). I make wrong things right. I save the lives of My children, and I cherish and protect them. I AM their provider (YHVH Yireh) and I AM YHVH Nissi (the Lord your banner/your victory/miracle). Depend on Me. Continue reading “Look to Me”
