I awake in the morning to the sound of bird song. I sit up and look around the room You prepared for me. It’s warm and inviting and as the sunlight streams through my window I feel content but as I arise to start my day, I feel pain in my body, my mind and my heart…then I remember…the long battle. I try to shake the images of the battle from my mind but it doesn’t work and I start to panic. Then I hear You humming in the kitchen. The sound of Your humming is like the Balm of Gilead. It soothes my heart, my body and my soul. A gentle breeze of Your shalom touches me and I arise from my bed. Continue reading “Come to the Table”
Psalm 136:12-13 (VOICE) With fierce strength, a mighty hand, and an outstretched arm, for His faithful love lasts forever. To Him who split the Red Sea in two and made a path between the divided waters, for His faithful love lasts forever.
Beloved, for those who choose to be on My side, My faithfulness knows no bounds. So choose Me, and align with Me, and watch My steadfast love manifest. Listen for My voice – whether thunderous or whispered, and be yielding and obey.
I AM the rock of strength for you to lean on, your firm foundation – the unchangeable One. Choose Me. And be steadfast in your choice. I AM the eternal One – the giver of life, embrace Me.
John 6:68 (AMP) Simon Peter answered, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You [alone] have the words of eternal life [you are our only hope].
John 3:5-6 (TPT) Jesus answered, “I speak an eternal truth: Unless you are born of water and Spirit-wind, you will never enter God’s kingdom realm. For the natural realm can only give birth to things that are natural, but the spiritual realm gives birth to supernatural life!
Beloved, pursue Me. Seek hard after the things of heaven, and expect the wind of My Spirit to blow. Be intentional to cultivate your spiritual senses. That which you focus on, you make room for. If you want more of My Spirit, make room by focusing in, and hone your senses so that you might receive.
I AM always eager and ready to interact with My children. If you press into Me, I will press in to you. The depth of relationship available to you with Me is fathomless. So spread wide your arms and throw back your head, and allow My Spirit-wind to move you. Continue reading “Allow My Spirit-Wind to Move You”
John 15:14 (TLB) and you are my friends if you obey me.
Beloved, hear and obey. Hear and obey. Don’t delay. Resist being sidetracked. Refuse to be derailed or dissuaded. Know My voice so well, that nothing can shake you. Know My Word so well, that your foundation is completely secure.
Be willing. Be yielded. And be obedient. Abide in the secret place with Me. Know My heart that you might accurately reflect it in your words and actions. Hear and obey, beloved. Hear and obey. Continue reading “Hear and Obey”
Proverbs 25:11 (VOICE) A well-spoken word at just the right moment is like golden apples in settings of silver.
Beloved, be slow to speak and seek Me for wisdom, for I will richly grant it when asked. The right word in the right moment can have life-changing impact, but the wrong word – or even the right word in the wrong moment – can result in resistance and hurt.
So seek Me for wisdom – both on what to say and when to say it. It’s more important for change to occur than it is for you to be able to say you were right. So lay down your pride, refuse to be offended, and simply operate in loving humility as a one whose words are carried on My breath.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 (GW) After having heard it all, this is the conclusion: Fear God, and keep his commands…
Beloved, when all is said and done, obey and revere Me. You can consider the wisdom of man, and you can spend time deciding what you think is right, but ultimately not one person on earth has the understanding and insight I do with heavenly, eternal perspective.
This is a matter of trust. Whose judgment are you going to trust and act on? Your own? With your limited view and biases, your judgment is imperfect, beloved. Wisdom is found in a multitude of counselors because you learn to listen for My breath among the words.
Beloved, My sheep know My voice and another’s they will not follow. Are you Mine? Then demonstrate that in your heart and actions. Hear and follow Me.
Amos 3:7 (VOICE) …The Eternal Lord does nothing Without revealing His plan to His servants, the prophets. They are His spokespeople.
Beloved, hear what I say. Find that quiet place within and make room to hear My voice. Resist the urge to be presumptuous, or to assume you know My intentions. Simply because I’ve operated one way in the past, doesn’t mean I will always do the same in future.
Be intentional. Look to Me. Abide with Me. Refuse to be influenced by words without My breath. Resist the urge to allow doubt or fear of man to sway the treasure I have deposited in you. Hold fast, and be obedient with what you’ve been given.
Matthew 10:27 (NKJV) Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.
Beloved, you are one who continually sits at My feet. You eat from My hand and are eager to soak in every word that I say. As a result, you know My voice. Even more, your persistence in maintaining intimacy with Me means that you know My heart. The result of your intimacy and choice to seek Me above all else means that My voice now bubbles up from within you continually. I have rubbed off on you and there is no turning back, My love! Continue reading “Let My Voice Roar Through You”
1 Kings 7:21 (GW) Hiram set up the pillars in the temple’s entrance hall. He set up the pillar on the right and named it Jachin [He Establishes]. Then he set up the pillar on the left and named it Boaz [In Him Is Strength].
Beloved, I establish and I bring strength. I stand fast, and I AM your firm foundation. Trust that I AM building that which is needed for what is to come. I see what lies ahead, and each and every need is accounted for. Rest in Me.
Pillar of truth. Pillar of strength. Unchangeable and unwavering am I. Fully dependable. Wholly reliable. I AM El Elyon, the Most High God. Fully trust in Me. Continue reading “El Elyon (Most High God)”
Song of Songs 8:5 (TPT) Who is this one? Look at her now! She arises out of her desert, clinging to her beloved. When I awakened you under the apple tree, as you were feasting upon me, I awakened your innermost being with the travail of birth as you longed for more of me.
Beloved, there is so much more of Me for you to know. So much more of Me for you to explore. Feast upon My presence and draw upon My love. I AM an unending well – open and available for you. I sustain you and give you life. Lean on Me.
As you press in for more, come without expectation or constraints and simply yield to Me. Allow Me to awaken you in ways you never knew were possible. I have created you and know your innermost being, trust in Me. Rely on Me.
Hear My whispering and feel the sparks as I bring you back to life – restoring and renewing you to a fullness you hadn’t believed possible. I AM all you need, and I AM enough. Cling to Me.
