1 Samuel 2:30 (AMP) …But now the Lord declares, ‘Far be it from Me—for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me will be insignificant and contemptible.
Beloved, when you give honor where honor is due you are also honoring Me. It is a sign you recognize those I have raised up and are coming into agreement with Me. It is more powerful than you know and requires humility to walk out.
And beloved, when you are the one rightly receiving honor, remember then too you honor Me to receive it. You are coming into agreement with what (and who) I have deemed worthy of exalting. Do so with humility, but receive the honor given knowing it not only blesses Me to see you honored and acknowledged, but it also gives Me glory.
1 Corinthians 2:9 (AMP) but just as it is written [in Scripture], “Things which the eye has not seen and the ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, who obey Him, and who gratefully recognize the benefits that He has bestowed].”
Beloved, you cannot begin to imagine what I have planned for you. Fear not, for I have prepared you and am readying you, and you will operate in My strength, but what is coming is glorious! Stay the course. Refuse to be waylaid. I have promised you good things – a hope and a future – and I AM good to My word.
Let your excitement and anticipation build. I AM glorious and when I move I change things. I AM taking you from glory to glory. Prepared to be astonished at all I will do through you. You have yielded and you have chosen to be purified, see what I will do! Be excited and stay the course, the best is yet to come.
Ephesians 4:2 (TLB) Be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.
Beloved, I AM glorified as you accurately reflect My character and nature – you who were created in My image. As you walk in grace, loving one another well – being patient and kind; never jealous or proud, haughty or unkind, selfish or rude; being mindful to seek other’s wellbeing and promotion above your own; rejoicing in each other’s victories and comforting in losses; and ever being loyal and steadfast – beloved, that kind of love honors Me. It demonstrates My character without a word. Those actions testify to My goodness simply by moving in the hearts of those it touches.
Actions like that bring Me glory, a glory that radiates in the spiritual realm like fireworks would in the natural. And even those who may not “see” it in the spirit can feel and respond to it – often without even realizing what they are responding to. So continue to love well, beloved, and bring Me glory. Continue reading “Love Well”
Psalm 40:5 (CJB) How much you have done, Adonai my God! Your wonders and your thoughts toward us — none can compare with you! I would proclaim them, I would speak about them; but there’s too much to tell!
Beloved, I AM the God of Wonders. Pause and behold My handiwork. See Me for who I AM. Do not allow doubt or circumstances to minimize Me in your eyes. Nothing is too hard for Me. And I love you. You are My beloved, My heart, apple of My eye, and center of My world.
Do you think that I could part the seas, but somehow be incapable of moving on your behalf? Or perhaps you think Me able but unwilling? Don’t fall prey to those lies, trust Me. Trust My plans for you, and yield to Me. Look with wonder upon My glory. Watch Me in action. Refuse to be moved or shaken. Know that I AM God.
John 1:5 (AMPC) And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it].
Beloved, darkness cannot resist the light. It must surrender to it. I AM light. Everything is darkness compared to the light of My glory. But you, beloved, made in My image, are a carrier of My presence – My glory – therefore you also shine brightly, drawing those in darkness to the brilliance of your glow.
Do not be afraid of the darkness, for far greater is the Light within you. You have nothing to fear, the darkness merely highlights the splendor of your radiance. Christ in you, the hope of glory. Joy and salvation. Shine brightly and unashamedly. Like a prism bursting forth into beaming rays of opalescent light, so My children burst forth in facets of My beauty – glorious and splendid, a feast for My heart.
John 17:17 (AMP) Sanctify them in the truth [set them apart for Your purposes, make them holy]; Your word is truth.
Beloved, allow yourself to decrease that I might increase within you. Yield to My refining process. Let Me burn away the dross leaving you brilliant and sparkling that you may shine blindingly brightly. This is My sanctifying process. The process by which you become more like Me – more radiant – that your countenance might glow from My glory. Waves of glory!
I have new levels for you. Shifting the atmosphere and opening up heaven to draw you in closer still to Me. Allow Me to gently change you into the fullness of all I’ve called you to be. Give the process the time it needs, the journey itself is a blessing and rushing the process only causes you to miss points along the way so yield to both My process and My pace. I will increase My blessings upon you. Receive it, beloved. Continue reading “Yield to My Sanctification “
Isaiah 62:3 (VOICE) And you will be the crowning glory of the Eternal’s power, a royal crown cradled in His palm and held aloft by your God for all to see.
Beloved, you are My crowning joy, a sparkling gem, My delight, the apple of My eye. My glory is made manifest in you and in your life. I display you for all to see – exalting you that those around you might see Me.
So shine brightly, beloved. It is not arrogance to live to the fullest of what I’ve created you to be. It is honoring to your Creator. Do not be shamed into diminishing yourself into a muted version of you simply because others are jealous, intimidated, or judgmental. You are My joy and glory. Live to please Me.
Matthew 27:51 (TLB) And look! The curtain secluding the Holiest Place in the Temple was split apart from top to bottom; and the earth shook, and rocks broke,
Beloved, I removed the separations between us. I’ve granted you access and encouraged you to come boldly and expectantly. I want time with you face-to-face. I want My glory to reflect on your countenance. I want you to spend time in My presence not asking for anything or feeling the need to do anything, just simply being. Being together. Being quiet. Being one.
Come and be changed in My presence. Come and be moved. Let Me love you and teach you how to love like Me. To simply be more like Me. Holy. And hear the angels surrounding My throne crying “Holy! Holy! Holy!” Be immersed in Me. Let the atmosphere of heaven penetrate your soul. Be forever changed in My presence and made whole.
