I AM the Good Shepherd

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.

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.

Walk in Bold Confidence

Nehemiah 8:10 (AMP)…And do not be worried, for the joy of the Lord is your strength and your stronghold.

Beloved, stand fast in what you know to be true. Refuse to be moved by feelings of worry, guilt, or shame; they have no part of you for you are Mine – beautiful and forgiven, draped in My grace. Rejoice! And allow that joy to reassure and strengthen you. I AM with you.

I AM your stronghold and the lifter of your head (Rum Rosh). Walk in bold confidence remembering you are a child of Mine. Let that confidence infuse others with strength as they learn and cling to their God-given identities. Believing Me and walking in My truth is a powerful weapon, for it declares I AM trustworthy and speak truth, thus My promises are true – indeed they are yes and amen. So again I say rejoice!

Nehemiah 8:10 (VOICE)…Do not grieve over your past mistakes. Let the Eternal’s own joy be your protection!

I AM the Righteous Judge

Hebrews 10:30 (AMPC) For we know Him Who said, Vengeance is Mine [retribution and the meting out of full justice rest with Me]; I will repay [I will exact the compensation], says the Lord. And again, The Lord will judge and determine and solve and settle the cause and the cases of His people.

Beloved, I AM the righteous judge. I AM Elohim Mishpat (God of Judgment/Justice). Leave exercising judgment in My capable hands and simply focus your attentions on Me. Trust Me to know your causes and see the injustices done and to address them rightly. I see fullness of every situation and the intentions of each heart. I understand why each choice and action is made. I know when to extend grace and when to bring correction (and how to do so most effectively), trust My judgment.

Yielding to My judgment in no way gives a pass to those perpetrating injustice, it simply indicates your understanding that only I know how best to address it and that you trust Me to do so. Simply taking that stand is powerful warfare, for in doing so you declare I AM trustworthy and righteous, and you acknowledge My sovereignty. This both leads others by example and sends a powerful message to the kingdom of darkness making you a warrior of light – beautiful and trusting your King.

Trust Me to Know You

Matthew 7:11 (NLT) So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.

Beloved, I love to lavish My children with good gifts. I AM YHVH Bore, the Lord your Creator. I know how I’ve made you and the details of how I’ve wired you. I know your desires and the things that bring you joy. I know you even better than you know yourself. Trust that I know what will fulfill you.

Yield to Me. Ask Me for the good gifts I would have you have rather than persistently petitioning your wants. There will definitely be times those two things align, but I see things from a vantage point you don’t (and indeed cannot), so there are things I know will bless you beyond measure that are not even in your purview.

Trust Me and trust My heart for you. I AM and I AM the rewarder of those who diligently seek Me. Open your hands and heart to receive the blessings and gifts I have for you. Continue reading “Trust Me to Know You”

Ask

2 Kings 6:17 (GW) Then Elisha prayed, “Lord, please open his eyes so that he may see.” The Lord opened the servant’s eyes and let him see. The mountain around Elisha was full of fiery horses and chariots.

Beloved, ask Me to see. I have given you eyes to see and ears to hear so you are able. There is nothing to fear, for I AM with you always. Truly, legions of angels stand at the ready, engaging on your behalf at My request in response to your prayers. So ask, beloved.

Ask to see. Ask for help. Seek Me – My hand and My assistance. I AM YHVH Sabaoth, the Lord of Hosts – leader of the heavenly armies. Nothing can stand against me and succeed. So stand with Me.

Mirror My countenance – one of peace and love firmly rooted in truth – be like Me. Love like you’ll never get hurt. Eyes wide open. Knowing your heart is in My hands and it is safe there. Your pain is never wasted, beloved – I collect every tear so priceless is your heart to me. Trust Me and trust My plans for you for I AM God and I AM good.

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”

Choose Holiness 

Exodus 28:36 (KJV) And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it, like the engravings of a signet, Holiness To The Lord.

Beloved, just as I had the high priest wear the engraving “Holiness to the Lord” against his forehead – a frontlet between his eyes – so you must keep your mind’s eye fixed on holiness. Choose it. Be intentional about it. Choose it out of love for Me, because it is pleasing to Me, and choose it for yourself, because it is good for you.

I am Elohim Qadosh, the Holy God. You are made in My image, walk like Me. I know that even as you try to be holy there will be times you fall short, but beloved, don’t allow a lack of perfection to discourage you from even trying. Not being able to perfectly execute something does not absolve you of the responsibility of trying. Choose rightly, beloved. No matter what the world says, choose well. Resist temptation – you are able. I AM with you to strengthen you. Be holy as I AM holy. Continue reading “Choose Holiness “

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 Who I AM and I AM Unchanging 

Revelation 19:11 (AMPC) After that I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse [appeared]! The One Who was riding it is called Faithful (Trustworthy, Loyal, Incorruptible, Steady) and True, and He passes judgment and wages war in righteousness (holiness, justice, and uprightness).

Beloved, I AM faithful. I AM true. I AM fiercely loyal and perfectly steadfast. I can be fully trusted and I AM incapable of being corrupted or influenced to change My character. I AM who I AM and I AM unchanging. You can depend on Me. If I say it. I will do it.

I AM love, rich in mercy, and slow to anger. When I wage war, I do so with integrity in justice. I AM holy. I fight on behalf of the ones I love. I am stirred with righteous anger towards the enemy and his plots and ploys against you. I will not be silent for I am YHVH Sabaoth (the Lord of Hosts) and I will fight for those I love and on their behalf for they rely on Me and I AM faithful and steadfast, and I AM victorious.
