Genesis 37:5 (VOICE) One day Joseph had a dream. When he told the dream to his brothers, they hated him even more.
Beloved, refuse to mock or belittle the dreams of others. Simply because you can catch their vision doesn’t make it ridiculous or beyond possibility. In the same way you wouldn’t want to have someone judge or crush your dreams, refuse to be the one who does that to someone else. Time will show whether it is a God-given desire or simply a soulful hope.
But regardless of which it may be, Hold the dreams with respect knowing it is a beautiful thing for someone to dream with Me for I AM a big God, the author of the impossible – a miracle-working God. You never want to find yourself in opposition to My thought and plans simply because you didn’t understand them or they offended your sensibilities. Always encourage dreaming with Me.

Genesis 9:13 (TLB) I have placed my rainbow in the clouds as a sign of my promise until the end of time, to you and to all the earth.
Beloved, I AM the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. I AM everlasting and completely faithful. That which I have said will be accomplished as surely as the sun will rise on the morrow. I AM steadfast.
Encourage yourself in the knowledge of who I AM. Stir up your faith and remember that I AM true. Look to the sky and allow My rainbow to remind you that I have promised and I will always make good on My promises. Remind yourself of My faithfulness and keep your heart true. Continue reading “Remind Yourself of My Faithfulness”
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”
Genesis 15:5 (NET) The LORD took him outside and said, “Gaze into the sky and count the stars – if you are able to count them!” Then he said to him, “So will your descendants be.”
Beloved, My promises for you are plenteous and steadfast. Just as the rainbow is a reminder of My promises, may the stars be a reminder of the overwhelming blessings in store for those who love Me. For just as I promised Abraham more descendants than there are stars in the sky, so My promises for those who love Me are an uncontainable blessing.
Fix your gaze on Me and make Me your first choice. Throughout the ages My heart-cry remains the same: that I would be your God and that you would be My people. I hold nothing back from those who hold nothing back from Me. So delight in Me, beloved, and let your zeal be unmatched. May your passion be a flame that burns so brightly those around you can’t help but be ignited. May it serve as a lighthouse that guides the way to unfettered access to Me and the fullness of My love, which knows no bounds.
Genesis 15:17-18 (AMP) When the sun had gone down and a [deep] darkness had come, there appeared a smoking brazier and a flaming torch which passed between the [divided] pieces [of the animals]. On the same day the Lord made a covenant (promise, pledge) with Abram…
Beloved, My covenant fire stands true today – My promises to you intact. My love for you is still burning strong – its flame unquenchable. I never forget My word. I watch over it to perform it, patiently waiting to see it come to pass. I hold Myself accountable. You need not wonder if you wait in vain for as surely as the sun will rise (and indeed even more surely), so My word is steadfast and true.
I breathe on you My breath of life. My words carried on that breath also promising life and life more abundantly. Will you rest in it? Will you trust in Me? Allow My holy fire to consume and refine you? Yield, beloved. Choose the better way, surrender to My heart.
Psalm 103:4 (AMPC) Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption, Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercy;
Beloved, I love you too much to leave you on a path of hurt and destruction. I made a way and have drawn you to Myself. I have crowned you with unfailing love and compassion. You are priceless to Me and worth dying for.
Just as My covenant with Abraham is unconditional, so is My covenant of love with those who’ve chosen Me. Simply cling to Me and trust that My promises – Blood-covered and enforced – will not return void. I watch over to perform them and delight in bringing them to pass for it pleases Me to bless My children. Rest in My promises, beloved, for they are assured. Continue reading “My Promises are Assured”
Genesis 2:7 (GW) Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the earth and blew the breath of life into his nostrils. The man became a living being.
Beloved, My breath brings life. Ask Me to breath into situations and over people. Ask for My breath of life – My Spirit – to change things. Ask Me. Feel My breath, My wind, in your life. I AM moving, beloved. Like a desert suddenly blooming, My breath of life brings dramatic change, refreshing and hope. Embrace it. Welcome and encourage it.
Remember that life is in you, beloved. You live because My breath is in your lungs. Breathe that life out onto others. Be intentional to do it. Choose life. Choose to release it over others. Carefully choose your words, beloved, and select only those that bring life. You are made in My image, reflect Me.
Genesis 21:1 (VOICE) The Eternal One kept His promise
Beloved, I AM not a man that I should lie. Nor the son of man that I should repent. I AM infallible. Unchanging. Steadfast. I always keep My promises. I AM faithful from generation to generation. I AM slandered and accused, yet I remain the same: deeply in love with My people.
Resist the temptation to doubt Me when time goes long and the wait becomes agonizing. My plans and timing are for your good. Wait in patience, trusting Me. Do not make an idol of your desire to understand or demand that I explain Myself to you. Am I not God? Would you sit in judgment of My reasoning? Surely not!
You are My child. My beloved one. My heart towards you is good. Trust Me. Believe in My love, kindness, and affection for you, for when you know – truly know – there is no room to doubt My heart for you. My love for you is that great. Overwhelming. Bask in that love as you wait, knowing I AM true to My word.
Numbers 23:19 (GW) God is not like people. He tells no lies. He is not like humans. He doesn’t change his mind. When he says something, he does it. When he makes a promise, he keeps it.
Genesis 1:2 (NKJV) The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
Beloved, I AM the Creator and you are made in My image. I have made you to pour forth life, to create. Just as before the creation there was a moment My Spirit simply hovered, so there will be that moment for you. So wait for it, beloved, I will whisper to your heart – listen for it. Don’t move without Me. I love to create with you.
As you create beloved, reflect My heart. I will give you ways to express supernatural things in earthly mediums. My heart is for My people to know – truly know and understand – their real home, for you are simply sojourners here. As My people are able to catch the vision, they are better able to stay fixed on my worldview rather than being drawn in by the world’s. What a gift that you are able to help others capture that glimpse of eternity!
