The Power of One

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.

Isaiah 62:6 (CSB) Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen on your walls; they will never be silent, day or night. There is no rest for you, who remind the LORD.

Refuse to Relinquish Your Victory

Isaiah 53:5 (AMPC) But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.

Beloved, the price has already been paid. By the blood of the Lamb you have overcome. Refuse to relinquish your victory. The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but My Son came that you might have life and have it more abundantly.

Refuse to live in death and darkness. Though the cage door has been thrown wide open, only you can choose to walk through into the fullness of your freedom. Refuse to settle in any area. Know that I AM with you. My rod and My staff comfort you. The price has been paid, embrace the fullness of the victory.

I AM the Waymaker

Isaiah 43:16 (TLB) I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters, making a path right through the sea.

Beloved, I AM the Waymaker. You need not be concerned as to how or why, just know I AM. In times of trouble, look to Me. As you do – as your faith and trust in Me is made evident in your actions and your praise – I AM lifted up. Like a standard of victory before a contending army, I AM YHVH Nissi. I AM the Lord your banner. Who can stand against Me?

I AM the Lord of the breakthrough and the restorer of your souls. I jealously guard you and love you beyond your wildest imaginings. I AM good. Refuse to be discouraged. Refuse to be impressed with the attacks that the enemy launches, refuse him the praise of acknowledgment and fix your eyes on Me, the author and finisher of your faith. Behold, I’m doing a new thing, watch as I bring the breakthrough. Continue reading “I AM the Waymaker”

Receiving the Gift

Isaiah 53:5 (VOICE) But he was hurt because of us; he suffered so. Our wrongdoing wounded and crushed him. He endured the breaking that made us whole. The injuries he suffered became our healing.

Beloved, My Son was born that He might die – graciously sacrificing Himself on your behalf, His love poured out for you – a selfless and perfect offering made on your behalf. The cost was high. Yet we choose it willingly because that is the depth of the love of God.

Refuse to waste the gift you’ve been given. Walk in the freedom that came at so dear a price. Cling to the Blood-bought healing for your body, mind, soul, and spirit. The price has been paid, there’s no need to try to pay again out of a mistaken sense of guilt or shame. Don’t belittle the sacrifice given out of love on your behalf. Receive the fullness of the gift. Continue reading “Receiving the Gift”

Trust Your Times in My Hands

Isaiah 46:10 (VOICE) From the beginning I declare how things will end; from times long past, I tell what is yet to be, saying: “My intentions will come to pass. I will make things happen as I determine they should.”

Beloved, trust My timing. Nothing happens by accident or without My notice, and nothing is beyond My care. Regardless of the enemy’s ploys, I will prevail. Trust Me at My word for I AM faithful and I AM good.

I work all things for good, so even in the moments you cannot see My hand, trust Me to move. Trust Me to heal. Trust Me to restore. Trust Me to work through every hurt, rejection, and pain and bring forth life. Beloved, My word will not return void, rather I watch over it to ensure each and every promise comes to pass. Trust your times in My hands.

Persist Until the Door Swings Wide

Matthew 7:7 (ESV) Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Beloved, be persistent in your pursuit. Refuse to yield to opposition or be deterred by hindrances. You know My voice, you know My heart for you, refuse to accept anything less than My best for you. Wrestle until you come out the victor.

Refuse to turn away until the door swings wide – until victory is complete and access is granted. Do not lose heart. Trust that I AM with you, leading you, and therefore defeat is not an option. I AM the Lord your God and I AM mighty to save. Continue reading “Persist Until the Door Swings Wide”

Rock of Ages

Isaiah 26:4 (AMPC) So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages].

Beloved, I AM the Rock of Ages – an everlasting fortress and stronghold. I AM your safety and protection, your rear guard, the One who watches over you. Put your trust in Me. Rely on Me. Deem Me trustworthy, and allow your actions to reflect that. Show the world through your bold confidence in Me, that I AM who I say I AM – that I AM God.

Choose Me, beloved, without fear or second guessing. I AM the Lord of Hosts, the Everlasting Arms, I AM your rock – a very present help in times of trouble. Look to Me and know I always provide a way. Simply seek Me and I will guide your feet and make your path sure. For you are Mine, beloved, and I do not desert My own.

Lose Yourself in the Ocean of My Love

Isaiah 43:2 (TLB) When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up—the flames will not consume you.

Beloved, regardless of the trials you face, I AM always with you and will never leave you. The waters that feel as though they might drown you cannot rend you from My grip. Release yourself to Me and allow the water of My Spirit to saturate you with the depths of My love.

Focus on My heart for you. Refuse to be distracted by the troubles and worries on every side for My love is larger than, grander than, bigger than anything else. Let it fill you and overwhelm you. As you’re lost in the ocean of My love everything else will pale in comparison. Allow the magnitude of all I AM to right-size everything else for, beloved, everything is small when compared to the vastness of Me. There is nothing to fear. You will not drown nor will flames overtake you, only the beauty of My love will overwhelm you, and that is a safe place to rest.

Rest in the Knowledge You are Mine

Isaiah 43:1 (TLB) But now the Lord who created you, O Israel, says: Don’t be afraid, for I have ransomed you; I have called you by name; you are mine.

Beloved, can you hear Me calling you? Your name on My lips – sweet as honey and precious to Me. You are Mine. I have called you My own. I have ransomed you. The price has already been paid. Let your heart rejoice in the grace extended to you. Revel in it, beloved, for My mercy is a gift – an extension of My great love for you.

My perfect love leaves no room for fear. When you truly know Me, you know I fiercely love My children and jealously guard them. I stay close in times of trouble, and comfort in times of mourning. I will never leave you. I created you for My pleasure, beloved, and you do please Me. Rest in the knowledge you are Mine.

Be My Burning One

Hebrews 1:7 (NET) And he says of the angels, “He makes his angels spirits and his ministers a flame of fire,”

Beloved, My angels still touch coal to lips. Be purified. You are forgiven, refined, and guilt cannot plague you anymore. Choose to be holy as I AM holy. Choose to be tried in the fire – yield to My process – less of you, more of Me. My refining flames burning away the dross leaving you purified, sparkling, and new. Burn with passion for Me.

There is no need to resist the flames,  yield to Me and let Me bring forth beauty from the ashes that My glory might shine through. A broken, contrite spirit that seeks hard after Me is the most fragrant offering you can bring. That I will accept. That I will adore. You I cherish, beloved. Be My burning one, with a soul surrendered and a heart ignited for Me. Continue reading “Be My Burning One”
