Look to Me

Isaiah 33:22 (NLT) For the Lord is our judge, our lawgiver, and our king. He will care for us and save us.

Beloved, resist the urge to lean on yourself or to look to a human to care and provide. For ultimately I AM the one truly reliable and steadfast, and though I may work through those around you to minister to your needs, always remember I AM the source.

I AM Palet (your deliverer) and El Elyon (God Most High). I AM where your help comes from. I AM Elohim Mishpat (God of Judgment/Justice). I AM Elohim Emeth (True God/God of Truth). I make wrong things right. I save the lives of My children, and I cherish and protect them. I AM their provider (YHVH Yireh) and I AM YHVH Nissi (the Lord your banner/your victory/miracle). Depend on Me. Continue reading “Look to Me”

Explore with Me

Isaiah 45:3 (VOICE) I will give you hidden treasures and wealth tucked away in secret places; I will reveal them to you. Then you will know that I am the Eternal, the God of Israel, who calls you by name.

Beloved, I have so much more for you – things below the surface, outside your immediate natural understanding – will you go deep with Me? Will you allow Me to give you revelation? Will you choose to take the time – make the time – for us to be together?

Seek Me as you would immeasurable riches, for I AM more worthy and considerably more satisfying than such. Explore with Me. Together let us plumb the depths of My mysteries that I may share with you and teach you as I have promised. Continue reading “Explore with Me”

Beautiful Life

Psalm 16:11 (VOICE) …You direct me on the path that leads to a beautiful life. As I walk with You, the pleasures are never-ending, and I know true joy and contentment.

Beloved, My plans for you are beautiful and will fill you with more contentment than you can begin to imagine. Release yourself completely to My care and My loving hands. My plans for you are good plans – plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans for hope and a future.

Allow Me to direct your path. Even in the trials, joy will steady you as you willingly yield to Me. Beautiful is the life I have for you. Rejoice in it and in how I move in and through you, beloved. Continue reading “Beautiful Life”

Increase Comes Through Me

John 15:4 (GW) Live in me, and I will live in you. A branch cannot produce any fruit by itself. It has to stay attached to the vine. In the same way, you cannot produce fruit unless you live in me.

Beloved, increase comes from Me. Stay firmly rooted. Life can only come from the source. Draw from Me. Drink deeply from My living water – the flow of My Spirit – be saturated in My presence and allow that rich, life-giving atmosphere to bring forth much fruit.

Deep wells pouring forth, gurgling up from deep within you as My Spirit stirs and hovers over you as you rest and dwell in My presence. Behold, I AM doing a new thing, will you not know it? [I sense Him smiling as He asks that as though He knows already of COURSE you will want to know it.] New life – increase – is coming. Increase is here. Continue reading “Increase Comes Through Me”

I AM Your Strong Tower

Isaiah 58:8 (VOICE) Then, oh then, your light will break out like the warm, golden rays of a rising sun; in an instant, you will be healed. Your rightness will precede and protect you; the glory of the Eternal will follow and defend you.

Beloved, as you walk in righteousness it is My joy to defend you. I will silence the tongues that seek to slander you and bring destruction on those who would seek your ruin. Behold I AM a Jealous God. I love My people beyond comprehension and woe to them that would stand against you.

I have warned not to touch My anointed. I have cautioned and made the consequences clear. I protect what is Mine, and beloved, you are Mine. I both cover you with My feathers (gently protecting), and I AM the Lord of Hosts (waging war on your behalf). You are not without covering. I AM your strong tower. You are safe in Me. Continue reading “I AM Your Strong Tower”

I AM Burning Away That Which Restrains You

Isaiah 43:2 (VOICE) When you face stormy seas I will be there with you with endurance and calm; you will not be engulfed in raging rivers. If it seems like you’re walking through fire with flames licking at your limbs, keep going; you won’t be burned.

Beloved, I AM baptizing you with fire. Immersing and consuming. All the dross is being burned away and your face will shine with a pure radiance that can only come from knowing Me and basking in My glory.

Let My fire wash over you like waves. And like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego walked among the flames but only the ropes holding them in bondage burned (Daniel 3:25), so shall My flames be over you. I AM igniting you and setting you ablaze for My glory! I AM burning away that which restrains and holds you back. Walk in the fire and do not be burned. Be beautified, glorified, and made new.

Declare My Greatness

Isaiah 12:4 (VOICE)…Give thanks to the Eternal; call on His name. Spread the news throughout the world of what He has done and how great is His name!

Beloved, I AM worthy. Declare My greatness throughout the earth. Testify. Share all that I have done in and for you. I AM great and greatly to be praised.

Call on My name for I AM faithful and worthy and mighty, and I love moving on behalf of My children. Keep your heart in an attitude of thanksgiving. Be mindful to see My handiwork for I love to bless you, just as I love being blessed by you. Hold Me close, beloved. You move My heart.

Take the Limits Off Your Expectations of Me 

Isaiah 45:3 (JUB) And I will give thee the hidden treasures and the well-guarded secrets that thou may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who gives thee thy name.

Beloved, nothing is hidden from Me. I haven’t lost anything nor will I ever struggle to put something in your hand. I AM sovereign. Be a yielded vessel and truly surrender all you have to Me that I may position you and equip you as I desire. Hold Me and relationship with Me dearest of all.

I will whisper to you secret things you have not known.  I will supernaturally provide for you. I will move in and through you in ways you cannot imagine. See with My eyes and hear with My heart. Know that each soul is more valuable to Me than any amount of silver. Discern true worth and refuse to be sucked in by the world’s system. Allow Me to move. Take the limits off your expectations of Me and give Me room to perform.

My Crowning Glory 

Isaiah 62:3 (VOICE) And you will be the crowning glory of the Eternal’s power, a royal crown cradled in His palm and held aloft by your God for all to see.

Beloved, you are My crowning joy, a sparkling gem, My delight, the apple of My eye. My glory is made manifest in you and in your life. I display you for all to see – exalting you that those around you might see Me.

So shine brightly, beloved. It is not arrogance to live to the fullest of what I’ve created you to be. It is honoring to your Creator. Do not be shamed into diminishing yourself into a muted version of you simply because others are jealous, intimidated, or judgmental. You are My joy and glory. Live to please Me.

Time to Flourish and Bloom

Isaiah 35:1 (TLB) Even the wilderness and desert will rejoice in those days; the desert will blossom with flowers.

Beloved, now is the time to bloom! Walk forward in peace and wisdom for it is time to prosper and flourish. My call is given without repentance. I haven’t changed My mind about you or the plans I have for you. I will see them through to their completion, never leaving your side, ever cheering you on as you blossom into the fullness of all I’ve created you for and called you to.

I’m not done with you yet. I have so much more in store. Hang on. Things are not dry or dying, but simply making way for new life. This desert is going to bloom. So make ready and prepare a place, for abundance is about to overtake you – so much that your storehouses won’t be able to contain it all. Make ready, beloved. It’s time to flourish and bloom!
