I Sustain You

Isaiah 40:31 (AMP) But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] Will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; They will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired.

Beloved, as you soar with Me, I sustain you. I lift you and carry you by My Spirit. Rest in Me. Trust Me to carry you where you need to go. Soaring on My breath, rising on eagles wings. 

Trust Me to show you what you need to see. To give you the perspective and vision I would have you have. And when I don’t show you, trust that I have My reasons then too. Refuse to get tempted into a downward draft, stay firmly in My flow and rest in Me. I AM the sustainer of your life. 

Time to Soar

Isaiah 40:31 (AMP) But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] Will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]…

Beloved, it is time to soar. Be lifted in the Spirit. Allow My breath to cause you to take flight. Soar with Me, beloved. Rise in My Spirit, and, with eagle-like vision, see. I have so much more in store than you can begin to imagine. 

And you’ll find that from the highest heights your perspective is changed. Suddenly you have vision and can better see what lies ahead. So wait on Me. Be refreshed, restored, and strengthened. And then, beloved, rise. It’s time to soar.  Continue reading “Time to Soar”

Steadfast Purpose

Philippians 1:9 (NLT) I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding.

Beloved, see as I see, and love as I love. Look to the heart of every matter, and be open to understand the spiritual factors at play. Move with intention and purpose, allowing My Spirit to lead. Then watch as you grow and change, even as you effect the world around you for Me. 

Be still and know that I AM God. Part of that knowing is understanding what is, what was, and what is to come. Refuse to be sidetracked from steadily progressing My Kingdom by the cares of today. For what comes tomorrow must have its foundation set today. So be steadfast in purpose, and win those around you by your love. 

The Power Source

1 John 1:5 (AMP) This is the message [of God’s promised revelation] which we have heard from Him and now announce to you, that God is Light [He is holy, His message is truthful, He is perfect in righteousness], and in Him there is no darkness at all [no sin, no wickedness, no imperfection].

Beloved, I AM El Ori, God your Light, and surely you must know the innate power light embodies. Light when harnessed can start fires or form a laser to create a tool both precise and powerful. Light illuminates. It brings truth. It mandates its atmosphere. Light controls the darkness, not the other way around. 

What can darkness do? It can distort and lie, but it has no real power. It has only as much power as the lack of light allows. And you are called to be a light – to reflect Me. So shine brightly. Don’t concern yourself with the darkness, but rather focus on the Source you are reflecting, for that is where the power comes from. So make room for the Power Source and reflect Me brightly. 

Fruit of Reconciliation

Proverbs 15:1 (NLT) A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare.

Beloved, you are called to love like Me and to live like Me. I AM slow to speak and slow to anger. I see the heart intentions behind words and actions and I respond accordingly. Refuse to allow your flesh to mandate your responses and instead with eyes of compassion look to the heart of things.

Respond rather than react in any situation. Be intentional and be like Me. Trust My Holy Spirit to empower you and give you the grace and wisdom you need regardless of circumstance. I AM your peace, so rest and trust in Me and refuse to be ensnared into a fleshly response. In your anger, sin not. Give grace and bear with one another in love and let the fruit of reconciliation come forth.

Intertwined Strength

Ecclesiastes 4:11 (AMP) Again, if two lie down together, then they keep warm; but how can one be warm alone?

Beloved, I have created you for multiplication. Though yes, you can accomplish much alone, I have made you for connection, and for the power that is found there. Resist the urge to to avoid it, it is worth the effort.

It is worth the frustration in moments of misunderstanding, and worth the character building that occurs when you must operate in grace and humility to create unity. Though it takes work – without a doubt, it truly is worth it.

So resist the temptation to protect your heart by holding others away, and choose instead to love as if you’ll never get hurt. Trust your heart to me, and choose to walk in love and experience intertwined strength. Continue reading “Intertwined Strength”

Keys to the Kingdom

Isaiah 22:22 (NLT) I will give him the key to the house of David—the highest position in the royal court. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them.

Beloved, walk in the manner I have instructed and you walk in My authority. Walking in My authority means unmitigated access: the keys to the Kingdom. This is a conditional promise based on your choices and actions. You are always loved, but to be fully empowered you must walk rightly.

Reflect My character. Reflect My heart. Obey My word. Shine brightly. Yield to My Spirit. Know that I AM God. Operate from a place of love and compassion rather than one of judgment or pride. Be My hands and feet to a lost and dying world. Be My love with skin on, for that is a more powerful force than you can imagine.

Declare with Courageous Confidence

Acts 4:31 (VOICE) They finished their prayer, and immediately the whole place where they had gathered began to shake. All the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began speaking God’s message with courageous confidence.

Beloved, you have been filled and empowered by My Holy Spirit. Walk the victory My Spirit brings. With courageous confidence declare My Word and in unwavering expectation watch for My promises to unfold. I AM faithful and you are mighty in Me.

You are equipped, beloved. Protected in the armor of God with My heavenly hosts at the ready beside. Never doubt our strength or give in to the temptation to fear. I AM steadfast and I AM sure. Prophesy, beloved. Declare My Word into all the earth. For I AM good and greatly to be praised.

Correcting Light

Ephesians 5:13 (TPT) Whatever the revelation-light exposes, it will also correct, and everything that reveals truth is light to the soul.

Beloved, My correcting light is a blessing worth embracing. I chasten those I love, so to reject My chastening is to reject My life-altering love. Embrace Me. Embrace My love. Welcome My correction without fear or shame. You have no need to defend yourself because you are not under attack. I understand your every heart motivation long before you do, and My grace is sufficient for you.

The wise embrace truth and see it as My wisdom, while the foolish reject it and seek to believe falsehoods and perversions. Refuse to allow pride to keep you from the benefit of wisdom, or for fear to create barriers from receiving My love. No one is beyond redemption. No one is incapable of change when empowered by My Spirit. Embrace My loving correction and allow the light of Truth to have its way. Yield to the shaping of the Potter’s hands, and become the glorious vessel you’ve been created to be.

Spirit of the Fear of the Lord

Job 28:28 (CSB) He said to mankind, “The fear of the LORD –that is wisdom. And to turn from evil is understanding.”

Beloved, as you see Me as I AM, you cannot help but be moved by My holiness and respond in kind. In reverential fear, choose to reject that which is evil and turn your back on sin. Resist temptation.

Allow your heart to be so tender that a gentle whisper from My Spirit brings conviction and change. Willingly yield to My Spirit, beloved, and choose to flow in the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord.
