Adonai Ori (the Lord your Light) and YHVH Shalom (the Lord your Peace)

2 Timothy 1:7 (AMP) For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].

Beloved, push back as fear tries to encroach upon you. You know it is not from Me. Find strength and rest in My presence and resist the urge to succumb to anything dark, like confusion or anxiety. I AM Adonai Ori – the Lord your light, and light dispels darkness. 

So stand in the light unafraid. Refuse to be moved or intimidated by darkness around you. You know Me and you know My voice, refuse to be moved by another’s. Stand fast and be at peace, for I AM YHVH Shalom, the Lord your peace. 

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. 

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.

Stay in the Light

Luke 8:17 (VOICE) Hidden things will always come out into the open. Secret things will come to light and be exposed.

Beloved, I AM not blind, nor do I hide My eyes from the things done in darkness. I AM the bringer of light because I AM light. I AM the revealer of mysteries and I expose the acts of wickedness and deception. I see and understand every motivation of every heart, and I shed light and bring truth that all will see and know and that every excuse is brought to naught.

For I AM holy, and I will not be mocked. Wickedness begets wickedness, and righteousness is born of truth. So hold fast to the truth and stay in the light. Walk rightly. My sheep know My voice and another’s they will not follow. Trust that I will bring forth truth, and fix your gaze on Me. Continue reading “Stay in the Light”

Child of the Light

Ephesians 5:13 (VOICE) When the light shines, it exposes even the dark and shadowy things and turns them into pure reflections of light.

Beloved, resist the urge to be intimidated by darkness for the power of My light far exceeds the deepest of night. One pinprick of light disperses the oppressive gloom, and you are a carrier of My light – you are filled with it.

So radiate without shame. Let it burst forth from you in all its inherent glory. You have a light that darkness cannot diminish or quell. Know and understand the power within you. You carry the Spirit of the Almighty.

What or who can stand against you when you are filled with Me? Where is the purpose in being afraid? Does light tremble in fear darkness may overcome it? Never! Be confident, bold, and steadfast as you walk as a child of the Light. Continue reading “Child of the Light”

El Ori (God my Light)

Psalm 27:1 (VOICE) The Eternal is my light amidst my darkness and my rescue in times of trouble. So whom shall I fear? He surrounds me with a fortress of protection. So nothing should cause me alarm.

Beloved, I AM Light. I AM the source. You act as My rays – shining out for all the world to see. Darkness cannot stand in the face of the blinding beauty of heavenly light. Reflect Me. Allow My pure light to warm those around you, and draw them to Me without a word – simply by your radiant glow.

I bring clarity. I bring truth. In Me no confusion can remain. I AM the Light of the World – there is no changing darkness in Me, I AM the light of revelation, and I AM the bringer of truth. No darkness may remain, the enemy must flee. So breathe easy, beloved, and rest in the glorious radiance of El Ori.

Knight of Light

Psalm 18:28 (TPT) God, all at once you turned on a floodlight for me! You are the revelation-light in my darkness, and in your brightness I can see the path ahead.

Beloved, you are a reflection of Me. I bring light to the darkness, and you – under My authority and acting on My behalf – are a knight of Light, a warrior for Truth. Simply by reflecting Me and walking steadfastly in truth, you take territory. You shine, and you shine brightly. Darkness has no choice but to flee.

You are empowered from on high. Never forget your Source. I AM the only true light, and there is no substitute. A counterfeit is known by knowing so intimately what is true that a lie cannot deceive. So bring My light, let it be known in all the earth that no counterfeit or substitute would even be a temptation to those around you because the vibrancy and warmth of My light is irresistible. Continue reading “Knight of Light”

Deeper Still

2 Timothy 3:16 (TPT) Every Scripture has been written by the Holy Spirit, the breath of God. It will empower you by its instruction and correction, giving you the strength to take the right direction and lead you deeper into the path of godliness.

Beloved, My Word is living and active – infused with the breath of My Spirit. It is invaluable for gaining wisdom and direction. It instructs and chastens. It comforts and encourages. It speaks to your heart. Receive the light it brings, for that light is Me.

Come deeper, beloved. I stand beckoning you – inviting you closer still. There is more – always more – to be had in Me. Behold, I AM Galah Raz, the Revealer of Mysteries – the All-Knowing One. You cannot plumb My depths, but My Word invites you to try. Come deeper still, beloved. Deeper still.

Don’t Hide

Matthew 5:15-16 (TLB) Don’t hide your light! Let it shine for all; let your good deeds glow for all to see, so that they will praise your heavenly Father.

Beloved, you are My show piece – a glorious example of My beauty and grace made manifest in the earth. Don’t hide yourself; hiding yourself means hiding the glory of My handiwork that was created to bless, encourage, and impact the world around you.

Shine brightly, beloved. Refuse to hide who I’ve created you to be by bending to the opinions of man, but instead boldly live a life of authenticity, displaying the true you in all your gloriously flawed beauty that My power and majesty might be made known.

A True Reflection of Me

Matthew 5:14 (TPT) Your lives light up the world. Let others see your light from a distance, for how can you hide a city that stands on a hilltop?

Beloved, I’ve created you to be seen. I’ve created you to have impact. Just as a light on a hill can be seen for miles, you have no idea the extent of your influence nor will you on this side of heaven.

But beloved, let that also be a word of caution to be sure your light is pure – a true reflection of Me. Refuse to be concerned with anyone’s reaction to your light, instead choosing to focus on the Source, and deeply drawing from Me.
