1 John 3:1 (TPT) Look with wonder at the depth of the Father’s marvelous love that he has lavished on us! He has called us and made us his very own beloved children. The reason the world doesn’t recognize who we are is that they didn’t recognize him.
Beloved, don’t be concerned when those around you reject or mistreat you, they did the same to Me. So refuse to take their actions as a measure of your worth, but rather trust My assessment of your value.
I love you beyond measure. I cherish and adore you. You are the apple of My eye – the light of My world. Be filled to overflowing with the blessing of My love. Be so full lies and misperceptions from the world cannot shake your true foundation in Me.
Psalm 23:2 (TPT) He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love. His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss.
Beloved, rest in My love. This place of rest is one found inside, and not dependent on outer circumstances. Like an eye in the storm, My peace makes room for itself regardless of situations that may seem to challenge it.
So cling fast. Refuse to relinquish My peace regardless of the winds and waves that come. Pause and feel that peace I have given you. Allow it to quiet your soul. Take comfort in My abundant love and breath in the bliss of My resonant peace.
John 3:16 (VOICE) For God expressed His love for the world in this way: He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not face everlasting destruction, but will have everlasting life.
Beloved, My love for you is so great there is nothing I’d hold back from you. My actions have proved that out again and again. So resist the urge to doubt Me now – to think the situations so important to you are somehow going unnoticed by Me.
I see. I AM El Roi – the God who sees, and nothing escapes My notice. Trust My love. Trust My heart for you. Rest in the shadow of My wings, for you are My beloved, and I AM your God.
Hosea 2:20 (AMP) I will betroth you to Me in stability and in faithfulness. Then you will know (recognize, appreciate) the Lord [and respond with loving faithfulness].
Beloved, I AM unchanging and certain. I do not shift nor am I fickle. Those who have given themselves to Me are Mine, and I belong to them. I AM faithful and everlasting – true to the end.
Respond to My love. Just as a flower blooms in the warmth of the sun, so shall you blossom in the warm glow of My gaze. With My Spirit to water and soften, and My Word to sustain and grow, My steadfast love will cause you to flourish. Receive, beloved, and thrive.
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.
1 Samuel 10:5-6 (VOICE) …Musicians leading them will be playing harps, tambourines, flutes, and lyres; and the prophets will be caught up in prophetic ecstasy. Then the Spirit of the Eternal One will overtake you, you will be caught up in the same prophetic spirit as these prophets, and you will be changed into a different person.
Beloved, lose yourself in life-changing praise. Surrender to My Spirit, and yield yourself to Me. Walk away changed, for I inhabit the praises of My people. Be empowered by Me and made new.
And in your “new” self walk in deeper levels of boldness of faith and purity of heart – of depth of compassion and unconditional love. Be like Me, beloved. May you reflect My nature, and may your words echo Mine just as your heart reveals My love.
Psalm 45:13 (TPT) As the princess bride enters the palace, how glorious she appears within the holy chamber, robed with a wedding dress embroidered with pure gold!
Beloved, I’m adorning you in My rainbow of promises that you might never forget the covenant that lies between us. I AM good and I AM faithful. You are Mine just as I AM yours. Refuse to tarnish or sully the beauty of what we have.
Just as you expect fidelity from an earthly spouse, so I expect it from you. Just as you hope for affection and attention to be lavished from an earthly spouse, so I hope for it from you. And just as you pray for deep, abiding, sacrificial love from an earthly spouse, so, beloved, am I looking for that from you. Just as I give all these things to you.
Jeremiah 31:3 (GW) The Lord appeared to me in a faraway place and said, “I love you with an everlasting love. So I will continue to show you my kindness.
Beloved, never has My love for you dimmed or been diminished. No, it burns like the brightest flame, casting light and bringing warmth – a steady assurance and unyielding support. I AM and have been at your side, and ever will I be.
Let My love strengthen and encourage you – bring you comfort when you are in need. But press forward, beloved. Refuse to turn back. The threshold lies before you, and like a bridegroom carries the bride into the chamber, so, My love, will I carry you as you surrender your plans to Me.
Psalm 21:7 (VOICE) For the king puts his trust in the Eternal, so he will not be shaken because of the persistent love of the Most High God.
Beloved, refuse to be shaken. Have complete trust in Me. I AM worthy. And I AM willing and more than able to carry you and all that concerns you. No load is too heavy – no need beyond notice. I AM El Roi, the God who sees.
I love you, and what matters to you, matters to me. Let Me lavish you with My love even as you respond in kind. Trust in Me, and rest in that trust, for I AM able. Behold My name is Elohim Yakol, God most able.
Philippians 1:9 (NLT) I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding.
Beloved, see as I see, and love as I love. Look to the heart of every matter, and be open to understand the spiritual factors at play. Move with intention and purpose, allowing My Spirit to lead. Then watch as you grow and change, even as you effect the world around you for Me.
Be still and know that I AM God. Part of that knowing is understanding what is, what was, and what is to come. Refuse to be sidetracked from steadily progressing My Kingdom by the cares of today. For what comes tomorrow must have its foundation set today. So be steadfast in purpose, and win those around you by your love.
