Psalm 37:4 (TPT) Make God the utmost delight and pleasure of your life, and he will provide for you what you desire the most.
Beloved, make Me your top priority – not as a chore or something to check off your to-do list, but truly find joy and life in your relationship with Me. Let it be authentic. Share your deepest thoughts and hopes, confess your deepest concerns and fears – give them all into My capable hands.
Let the time in My presence shape and mold you. Let it inspire and encourage you. Let the hope found in the promises of My word bolster your faith and keep your time of waiting expectant because you know that you know I will move on your behalf because I AM faithful. Hope in Me.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NKJV) To everything [there is] a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:
Beloved, resist the urge to cling to a moment if I AM drawing it to a close. Trust that – though yet unknown to you – the next season will be as beautiful and needful as the last, and each in their own unique way.
Celebrate the end. Give honor to the One who ordained it. But refuse to cling to that which is complete, instead embracing the hope of what is to come. Beloved, enjoy the sunset and await the dawn. I AM the beginning and the end. I AM the bringer of life. Hope in Me. Continue reading “Enjoy the Sunset and Await the Dawn”
Romans 4:20-21 (TPT) …because he was mighty in faith and convinced that God had all the power needed to fulfill his promises, Abraham glorified God!
Beloved, will you allow Me to be glorified through you? Will you expand your faith and stand fast in My promises? I will not love you any less if you are unable, but know that the beauty of My glory shining through your trusting heart speaks volumes about who I AM without uttering a word.
Will you take Me at My word? Will you allow My promises to stir hope in your heart? Will you remain steadfast in your hope even when My promises seem to tarry or when circumstances look bleak? I AM worthy of your trust, beloved. Stir up your faith! Look to the stars and remind yourself My blessings are vast and far more reaching than you will ever be able to know. Refuse to allow your blessings to be stolen through doubt and unbelief. Take Me at My word and refuse to be moved for I AM God.
Psalm 103:5 (AMPC) Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle’s [strong, overcoming, soaring]!
Beloved, allow My word to satisfy you as the choicest meat and richest honey. And My Spirit to refresh and restore you. Be saturated and rejuvenated in My presence. Allow Me to buoy you – lifting and strengthening you – you are an overcomer!
Let My touch on your life testify to My goodness, announcing to the world that I AM fulfilling, revitalizing, and sustaining. Let My joy radiate from your face that the lightness of your countenance might attest to My love for My children. Let your expectation of good cause you to shine like a beacon of hope in the darkness, for I AM good and I relish delighting Myself in you.
Psalm 143:10 (TLB) Help me to do your will, for you are my God. Lead me in good paths, for your Spirit is good.
Beloved, one truth you can always rest in is the knowledge I AM good. My heart is good. My intentions are good. My plans for you are good. The very definition of the word is based on My character: righteous, just, honorable, true, honest, upright, virtuous – I AM all this and more!
Because of all I AM, there is none more trustworthy than Me. You need not wonder if you can release your perceived control to My hands, for there is no doubt that I AM good. I cherish you and have good plans for you. They may not always be easy, but walk them through hand-in-hand with Me knowing in the end you will see they are good.
Revelation 22:1 (VOICE) My heavenly guide brought me to the river of pure living waters, shimmering as brilliantly as crystal. It flowed out from the throne of God and of the Lamb,
Beloved, My living water flows fresh and clear from heaven – raining down on you. Raise your arms and open your heart and receive My flow. Drink deeply, beloved, and allow the refreshing, life-giving flow to saturate every area of your being and your life. You are a beautiful vessel, beloved, let Me fill you to overflowing.
And then, beloved, pour it forth on the dry and cracked people and places and situations around you. You are a conduit – a carrier of Me – to a lost and dying world who desperately need a touch from Me. Be that touch. Minister My love, My healing, My refreshing, My living water and bring forth life and life abundantly all around you.
Malachi 3:12 (AMP) “All nations shall call you happy and blessed, for you shall be a land of delight,” says the Lord of hosts.
Beloved, choose Me – dedicate yourself and your resources to Me – and see how I will move. Your land will flourish, your people will prosper, and peace and joy will reign.
Those who love Me, declare it as so. Command the atmosphere. Come into agreement with My vision for your land. Declare over your nation that it shall be a people that serve the Lord. Minister to their hearts’, that they might see and know Me.
Genesis 2:7 (GW) Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the earth and blew the breath of life into his nostrils. The man became a living being.
Beloved, My breath brings life. Ask Me to breath into situations and over people. Ask for My breath of life – My Spirit – to change things. Ask Me. Feel My breath, My wind, in your life. I AM moving, beloved. Like a desert suddenly blooming, My breath of life brings dramatic change, refreshing and hope. Embrace it. Welcome and encourage it.
Remember that life is in you, beloved. You live because My breath is in your lungs. Breathe that life out onto others. Be intentional to do it. Choose life. Choose to release it over others. Carefully choose your words, beloved, and select only those that bring life. You are made in My image, reflect Me.
John 3:17 (TLB) God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it.
Beloved, too often My children rejoice in judgment; self-congratulating as they take note the areas they have “right” and highlighting the struggles and sins of others. That does not reflect My heart. I cannot rejoice at progress made in My child’s life if it’s intentionally contrasted to the downfalls of another. I want that not one might be lost.
Find ways to rejoice in your victories without comparison, for comparison isn’t how I measure. This is a good thing for all have sinned and fallen short but One.
So be intentional to bring hope. Say “because I have done this you can too!” Offer encouragement, prayer, and gentle counsel when it is sought. Love like Me. Be known for the love you exude. Shower those around you with hope. Believe the best. See the best. Encourage. Reflect My heart.
