Dwell in My Beauty

Psalm 27:4 (VOICE) I am pleading with the Eternal for this one thing, my soul’s desire: To live with Him all of my days— in the shadow of His temple, To behold His beauty and ponder His ways in the company of His people.

Beloved, embrace the sweet privilege of unhindered access to Me. In the same way that you would deeply feel the honor of being invited to spend time with a president or king, even more so with the King of Kings. 

Resist the urge to allow the familiarity of unfettered access to breed a devaluing of the gift you’ve been given of intimate relationship with Me. Magnify Me. See Me as I AM. Sit in awe at the depth of love and favor I’ve bestowed upon you. Dwell in My beauty, beloved, and embrace the gift you’ve been given. 

Lunchtime Live: Pressing in for More

Grab Hold

Luke 8:43-44 (TPT) In the crowd that day was a woman who had suffered greatly for twelve years from slow bleeding. Even though she had spent all that she had on healers, she was still suffering. Pressing in through the crowd, she came up behind Jesus and touched the tassel of his prayer shawl. Instantly her bleeding stopped and she was healed.

Beloved, touch the hem of My garment. Reach for Me and be made whole. There is healing in My wings and life within My touch. Grab on to Me and stay close. 

Just as the woman with the issue of blood drew life as she grabbed hold, so My life giving flow is ready and available for those who reach for Me today. So grab hold, beloved. Grab hold. 

Contend. Refuse to be discouraged. Resist the urge to turn back. Seek Me while I may be found, and grab hold. Wrestle – like Jacob and the angel, and refuse to let go until I bless you. Grab hold. 

Season of Breakthrough

Isaiah 61:2 (VOICE) He has sent me to announce the year of jubilee, the season of the Eternal’s favor: for our enemies it will be a day of God’s wrath; For those who mourn it will be a time of comfort.

Beloved, the time for mourning is past. Embrace the season of breakthrough with all the joy of a new day. Those that come against you shall fail, and those who stand beside you will prosper. 

Resist the urge to rejoice in the defeat of your enemies. Instead pray that they would choose more wisely – that all may see, know, and embrace truth, and walk in the freedom of righteousness. 

True Love

Song of Solomon 8:7 (VOICE) …If a person tried to exchange all of his wealth for love, then he would be surely rejected.

Beloved, you cannot buy My love anymore than I can gain your constancy through gifts. A love available for purchase is no love at all. So if your love is conditional upon My blessings, it is not truly love.

Love stands in the face of trials and adversity. Love is immovable and unchangeable. True love is unconditional and constant. That is the love I have lavished on you. Will you lavish the same upon Me?

Song of Solomon 8:7 (VOICE) No amount of water can quench love; a raging flood cannot drown it out. If a person tried to exchange all of his wealth for love, then he would be surely rejected.

The Spirit and the Bride Say Come

Revelation 22:17 (TPT) “Come,” says the Holy Spirit and the Bride in divine duet. Let everyone who hears this duet join them in saying, “Come.” Let everyone gripped with spiritual thirst say, “Come.” And let everyone who craves the gift of living water come and drink it freely. “It is my gift to you! Come.”

Beloved, the earth is groaning. And those with ears to hear know the urgency and the cadence like a heartbeat of the Spirit and the Bride saying, “Come!” Over and over the cry continues, “Come!”

As you join in with the the voices – both aloud and in your hearts and spirits as the cry resounds, “Come!” Drink deeply of the water of life. Be saturated even as you cry for more. Let the deep wells of spiritual desire be filled to overflowing as your heart continues the echo, “Come!”

Bringing Forth Abundant Life

Romans 12:2 (VOICE) Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete.

Beloved, feel My breath of life speaking over you – changing you, bringing radical transformation as you blossom and flourish. How dramatic a change is seen between a flowering tree in autumn versus spring. 

In the same way, beloved, don’t concern yourself with the areas that may seem dry and barren now because as you continue to maintain steadfast focus on Me and My Spirit, I will bring forth abundant life.  Continue reading “Bringing Forth Abundant Life”

Plentiful Harvest

Matthew 9:37 (AMP) Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is [indeed] plentiful, but the workers are few.

Beloved, the harvest is plentiful. Everywhere around you are people who are in desperate need of Me. Resist the urge to use your natural mind to find them. Instead simply be light. Shine in the midst of the darkness. Allow all to see how My hand on your life has radically changed who you are. 

Be moved by My Spirit. Allow Me to lead to you when to speak and what to say. Refuse to allow logic to trump My voice. Yield to Me. I know the hearts I have prepared for a word in season. So be My voice to those who can’t hear Me – of whom there are many. 

Matthew 9:36-38 (TPT) When he saw the vast crowds of people, Jesus’ heart was deeply moved with compassion, because they seemed weary and helpless, like wandering sheep without a shepherd. He turned to his disciples and said, “The harvest is huge and ripe! But there are not enough harvesters to bring it all in. As you go, plead with the Owner of the Harvest to thrust out  many more reapers to harvest his grain!”

Be Intentional in Unity

John 17:22 (VOICE) All the glory You have given to Me, I pass on to them. May that glory unify them and make them one as We are one,

Beloved, are you not one Body? Brought together for one purpose and one call? United in Me – for My Kingdom and My glory. Choose then what furthers that purpose. Choose then to be one in Me.

Be intentional in unity – intentional in harmony, intentional in humility, and intentional in grace. Be intentional in forgiveness, and intentional in understanding. But most of all be intentional in love, for therein lies harmony.

Walk in Blessing

Ecclesiastes 3:11 (AMP) He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]—yet man cannot find out (comprehend, grasp) what God has done (His overall plan) from the beginning to the end.

Beloved, I have placed a longing in your heart for more. A longing that can only be fulfilled by walking out the call that I have ordained for you. You sense this. Your spirit feels the call. And now it’s time to step forward. 

For everything there is a season – a time to plan and a time to execute those plans. Now is the time to step forward into your divine destiny. I have prepared you and made the way clear. So walk on, beloved. The time has come to begin to see the fullness of all I have in store. Walk in blessing. 

Praise-Filled Warrior

Psalm 149:3-4 (TPT) Break forth with dancing! Make music and sing God’s praises with the rhythm of drums! For he enjoys his faithful lovers. He adorns the humble with his beauty and he loves to give them the victory.

Beloved, rejoice and be glad for I AM good. I crown you with righteousness and cloak you in mercy. Declare My faithfulness in all the land. Sing praise to the One who is worthy – the One who loves you beyond comprehension. Sing the song of one who is deeply loved, for you are. 

Dance, beloved. Dance with joy as one who has been redeemed and set free. Give yourself as a joyous wave offering before your King. Rejoice, beloved. Be a praise-filled warrior with eyes firmly fixed on Me.
