2 Timothy 3:16 (TPT) Every Scripture has been written by the Holy Spirit, the breath of God. It will empower you by its instruction and correction, giving you the strength to take the right direction and lead you deeper into the path of godliness.
Beloved, My Word is living and active – infused with the breath of My Spirit. It is invaluable for gaining wisdom and direction. It instructs and chastens. It comforts and encourages. It speaks to your heart. Receive the light it brings, for that light is Me.
Come deeper, beloved. I stand beckoning you – inviting you closer still. There is more – always more – to be had in Me. Behold, I AM Galah Raz, the Revealer of Mysteries – the All-Knowing One. You cannot plumb My depths, but My Word invites you to try. Come deeper still, beloved. Deeper still.
Matthew 5:43-48 (TPT) …How are you any different from others if you limit your kindness only to your friends? Don’t even the ungodly do that?…
Beloved, there would be no need for Me to encourage you to love someone if they were someone you found easy to love. You would do it instinctively. So be mindful not to dismiss My instruction simply because it is difficult, challenges you, or makes no sense to your natural mind.
You do not see the hearts of men as I do, but if you trust My leading, you can navigate the murky waters of their inner workings with ease as you yield to My direction. I will not steer you wrongly.
Remember that simply because things look messy does not mean they aren’t exactly as they should be. When a cook is working on an elaborate meal, it is not unusual for things to look chaotic while the creation is underway, but a masterpiece still comes forth.
Refuse to be discouraged by the work in progress and simply trust My Spirit to lead you rightly. Love without reserve and love well. Continue reading “Love Without Reserve and Love Well”
John 15:13 (KJV) Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Beloved, love as I have loved – withholding nothing, without condition or exception. For this type of love changes things, it breaks through the strongest of fortresses, it permeates through the most steadfast defenses.
Even knowing that to be true, don’t love needing or expecting a response, love for the sake of Love. Love because giving the gift of love is its own reward. Love because to do so makes you more like Me. Continue reading “The Gift of Love”
Romans 8:14-16 (TPT) The mature children of God are those who are moved by the impulses of the Holy Spirit…
Beloved, the wise and mature choose to yield to the direction of My Spirit, while the headstrong and shortsighted insist on being tossed too and fro by the whims of the flesh. Choose wisely by which you will be led.
Resist the urge to react to fleshly urges rooted in pride or greed, and refuse to succumb to self-serving patterns of behavior, instead choosing the good of My Kingdom above all. Yield to My leading, just as one might float on the water allowing it to move you where it may, likewise rest in My flow. I will not steer you wrong. Continue reading “Rest in My Flow”
Matthew 5:43-48 (TPT) …For that will reveal your identity as children of your heavenly Father. He is kind to all by bringing the sunrise to warm and rainfall to refresh whether a person does what is good or evil…
Beloved, determine how you intend to love, and do so without judgment or condition, for I bring rain and sunshine over all without distinction and My salvation is a gift to any who would receive. Love can change even the hardest heart.
If no one loves the unlovable, how can we hope they will ever change? If no one shows them anything different to what they are accustomed, they’ll never believe there truly is another way to live. So beloved, lay down your pride and offer life-changing love. In doing so, you mirror My heart. Continue reading “Offer Life-Changing Love”
John 14:27 (AMP) Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge].
Beloved, I have endowed you with My peace. It is yours and you walk in the fullness of it. Allow My peace to so saturate you that you carry it like a tangible presence and like a lingering aroma leave it everywhere you go.
You are an overcomer, and you have overcome fear with My peace. Continually shift the atmosphere around you, being intentional to usher in that shalom – the peace that wars against chaos. You are My chosen vessel – a carrier of My glory, My Spirit, the truth of who I AM – share that truth unashamedly and cultivate an atmosphere of peace everywhere you go. Peace, peace, abundant peace.
Ezekiel 22:30 (VOICE) I searched for one man among them, a man who could build the wall and stand in the gap before Me and advocate for the land, a man who could convince Me not to destroy it; but I found no one.
Beloved, don’t underestimate the impact of one person, one voice. I am looking for one person to agree with My heart, let that be you. Stay tuned to My frequency. Let what moves Me, move you. Then respond accordingly. Trust My Spirit to lead.
The enemy will always seek for ways to silence and distract you, so keep your heart in tune with Mine and refuse to be silenced, refuse to be scattered, refuse to be moved. Never underestimate the power of one, the power you hold as you align with Me. Continue reading “The Power of One”
Psalm 104:33 (TLB) I will sing to the Lord as long as I live. I will praise God to my last breath!
Beloved, break forth in song – refuse to be made silent. For your delight is a blessing to Me and brings glory to My name. It shifts the atmosphere and declares My goodness. It magnifies Me and brings honor to My name. So sing, precious songbird, sing!
Never discount the power of your song. The sound coming forth breaks chains and sets the captives free. The angels respond to your voice – even the armies of heaven move out on the notes carried by your breath. Your voice changes things. It shifts things in the unseen realm as well as the seen. Refuse to be silent anointed songbird, release what I have placed within you for it is lovely and more powerful than you know.
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.
1 Corinthians 2:16 (AMP) For who has known the mind and purposes of the Lord, so as to instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ [to be guided by His thoughts and purposes].
Beloved, My Spirit has been given to you to teach and guide you in all things. Nothing is too trivial for My notice – for if it concerns you, it concerns Me. So seek My face and ask My counsel. Be intentional about doing My will and living in a way that is pleasing to Me.
Refuse to be derailed by worldly compromises – even if others’ might see them as “not a big deal” know that anything that creates distance between us is significant and not worth partaking in. Yes, beloved, I extend grace, but resist the urge to use it lightly for it came at a high cost. Free is not without value. It is a precious, weighty gift, so walk in righteousness, and look to My Spirit to guide.
