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.
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.
Luke 4:18 (VOICE) The Spirit of the Lord the Eternal One is on Me. Why? Because the Eternal designated Me to be His representative to the poor, to preach good news to them.
Beloved, be My voice. Open your mouth and trust Me to fill it. Allow My Spirit to flow through you, to inspire thought and action, to give vision of the unseen, and to bring prophetic revelation in My perfect timing. Trust, and yield to My flow.
As you partner with My Spirit, you will see the miraculous take place. The supernatural will become as if it were common so clear and continuous its evidence. The gifts of My Spirit alive and on display for all to see. The beauty of My glory manifest on earth and in the heavens. Choose, beloved, choose to yield and flow in Me. Continue reading “Spirit of the Lord”
John 1:1 (VOICE) Before time itself was measured, the Voice was speaking. The Voice was and is God.
Beloved, hear Me, for I AM yet speaking. My Word carried on My breath – My Spirit. I still speak today. Will you have ears to hear? Will you heed My voice? It is not enough to say you love My Word, true love is demonstrated by obedience – a yielding to truth, by becoming a manifestation of My Word.
I lead you rightly, so listen for My still small voice. Recognize it as it echoes My written Word which you have read and hidden in your heart. Hear and respond. Hear and obey. Align with My Son – My Word made manifest – by doing as He did, by living like Him – by being My living Word in the earth. Continue reading “Be My Living Word in the Earth”
Isaiah 40:8 (NLT) The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.
Beloved, before the foundations of the earth, My Word existed – carried on My breath, made manifest in My creation; My Word apparent for all to see. For those who have an ear to hear and those who have an eye to see, My Word is vibrant and alive, mighty and powerful, comforting and steadfast.
I remain the same. I AM steadfast and true, faithful to My Word, and holy and righteous. My Word was made flesh – the bread of life. My Word is sustenance to strengthen and build you up. Allow Me to be your firm foundation. Rest in Me. Rely on Me. I AM life, and I AM eternal.
