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”
Psalm 32:7 (AMP) You are my hiding place; You, Lord, protect me from trouble; You surround me with songs and shouts of deliverance. Selah.
Beloved, there is no situation so severe I cannot rescue you. I AM Palet, the Deliverer – your very present help in times of trouble. I walk with you through the storm, and I comfort you with My presence.
Look to Me. Regardless of the turmoil surrounding you, I AM your peace, your hiding place – the One who never leaves you or forsakes you. Rest in Me. Listen for the songs I sing over you, and set your mind on Me. Trust yourself in My hands, for I AM good.
Psalm 68:8 (VOICE) The whole world trembled! The sky poured down rain at the power of Your presence; even Mount Sinai trembled in Your presence, the presence of the True God, the God of Israel.
Beloved, never underestimate the power of My presence. It causes darkness to tremble, the dead to come to life, it brings manifold change and tremendous breakthroughs. I AM God Almighty – El Gibbor, the Mighty God. My presences changes things. My presence will change you.
As you stand basking in My overwhelming love, allowing My joy to refresh and heal you – how can you not come away changed? Make the time, be intentional, and soak Me in. Allow Me to saturate you in the oil of My Spirit.
Then prepare, beloved. For the power of My presence brings forth response. It brings about action. You cannot know Me and spend time with Me and stay the same. It’s not that a response is required as much as it is inevitable.
So prepare to take new ground. Pour out your fresh oil with the knowledge that I AM always pouring back into you – just step into My presence and be filled – heart and hands open, beloved, receive from Me – then go forth. Expand the Kingdom.
Proverbs 31:25 (NLT) She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.
Beloved, allow your joy and trust in My faithfulness to bubble up and overflow. With YHVH Sabaoth (the Lord of Hosts) and the hosts of heaven on your side, you know you have nothing and no one to fear. Your future is safe in My hands.
Let the joy of victory ring. Let your strength be like the finest garments, and your gentle dignity – your steadfast honor and quiet assurance – be as lovely accessories, accentuating the beauty of your faith in Me as you stand assured with joy.
Psalm 24:10 (TPT) You ask, “Who is this King of Glory?” He is the Lord of Victory, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, the invincible commander of heaven’s hosts! Yes, he is the King of Glory! Pause in his presence
Beloved, you know I love you and you’ve been told I call you friend, but never allow our intimacy to cause you to lose sight of who I AM. I AM the LORD, strong and mighty in battle. I AM the King of Glory and Lord of All. I AM the Lord of Hosts – the Commander of Heavenly Armies – the vast hosts of Heaven stand at My ready. I AM sovereign.
In our intimacy, do not make Me small in your eyes – a comfortable little god you can keep in your pocket and pull out on a bad day. I AM far bigger and far greater, and I AM not one to be manipulated or controlled. I fiercely protect those I love, and I will not be mocked. See Me as I AM. Worship Me and know Me. Intentionally keep your heart in a position of reverential awe. I AM worthy.
Judges 15:14 (VOICE) When the Philistines at Lehi saw them coming, they raised a mighty shout and ran to seize Samson. At that moment, the Spirit of the Eternal came upon Samson, and he immediately had great strength. He broke free of the ropes on his arms, as if they were no more than string burned with fire, and the bonds fell from his hands.
Beloved, I AM the Lord God your Strength, YHVH Tsur, and I will provide the strength you need in the exact moment you need it. Yield to My Spirit. Allow Me to move through you in power and might. But beloved never lose sight of the source of your strength.
Resist the temptation to allow pride to take root. The enemy will always try to cut you off from Me. Like a cut flower that may bloom for a moment, but ultimately is doomed to die because it is removed from its source, so it is imperative for you to remain deeply rooted in Me. Be nourished by My presence and strengthened by My joy.
1 Peter 1:25 (TLV) But the word of the Lord endures forever.” And this is the word that was proclaimed as Good News to you.
Beloved, My word endures forever. From everlasting to everlasting I remain. I AM steadfast and sure – unchanging and completely dependable. You can rely on Me. I AM the same yesterday, today, and forever. Those around you may disappoint and shift like sand, but I remain the same.
I AM your true north – your touch point, your anchor. Let Me be your firm foundation in a world ever changing. Fear has no place as you put your trust in Me for I AM El Shaddai, the All-Sufficient One, and I fiercely love and protect My children. My heart towards them – towards you – is unchanging and wholly loyal. Rest in the shadow of My wings for there you will find peace.
2 Peter 2:9 (NLT) So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment.
Beloved, no circumstance is so complex that I’m unable to extract you from it. There are times I may walk you through for your character’s sake, but I AM always able. So trust Me and never hesitate to ask Me for help for I AM a very present help in times of trouble.
Take My hand and walk in peace – regardless of circumstance. I AM YHVH Shalom, the Lord your Peace, and I will never leave you or forsake you. My joy is your strength and it is always there for the taking because it is found in My presence and I will always receive you. No trouble is too great. No shame too heavy. Nothing will keep Me from My children nor lessen My love for them – and that means you.
John 10:14 (AMP) I am the Good Shepherd, and I know [without any doubt those who are] My own and My own know Me [and have a deep, personal relationship with Me]
Beloved, you are My precious child. You are My very own. You are a part of Me and I know you intimately. You can rely on Me and trust Me to lead and counsel you wisely, for I AM the Good Shepherd and I care deeply for My sheep.
And My sheep know Me. They know My voice and listen (and obey) My instructions. They know My touch and follow My leadings. They choose to rest in Me – relying on Me to provide, protect, and prepare. I AM faithful and I love My little ones, not one escapes My notice. I AM good, rely on Me.
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].

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.
