Psalm 42:8 (VOICE) Yet in the light of day, the Eternal shows me His love. When night settles in and all is dark, He keeps me company— His soothing song, a prayerful melody to the True God of my life.
Beloved, quiet your soul and hear My song. Its strains whispering peace to those who would listen. Tune in to that golden flow. Let it wash over you. Let it be what mandates the cadence of your life.
Resist the urge to allow the chaos of the world to bring discord, but instead press in deeper, like a child burrowing into their parent’s shoulder – safe, secure, and loved in their arms. I AM your safety and I AM your song – YHVH Zimrath, the Lord your song.
Psalm 42:1, 5, 7-8 (VOICE) My soul is dry and thirsts for You, True God, as a deer thirsts for water. Why am I so overwrought? Why am I so disturbed? Why can’t I just hope in God? Despite all my emotions, I will believe and praise the One who saves me and is my life. In the roar of Your waterfalls, ancient depths surge, calling out to the deep. All Your waves break over me; am I drowning? Yet in the light of day, the Eternal shows me His love. When night settles in and all is dark, He keeps me company— His soothing song, a prayerful melody to the True God of my life.
1 Samuel 16:23 (JUB) And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took a harp and played with his hand; so Saul was refreshed and was better, and the evil spirit departed from him.
Beloved, soak in the sound of heaven, for it brings peace. The enemy hates that sound. What soothes and ministers to My children offends the ears of those who hate Me. So stay in My flow. Bask in it.
Use your hands and mouth and whole body as a vessel for My songs to pour through. Make a joyful noise. Shift the atmosphere. Hold nothing back, and resist the urge to be caught up in skill level or lack thereof. Instead focus on what I look at: the heart.
Psalm 4:8 (VOICE) Tonight I will sleep securely on a bed of peace because I trust You, You alone, O Eternal One, will keep me safe.
Beloved, find sweet rest in Me. Know that you are safe in My hands, for I watch over My children and I never sleep or slumber. You are secure in My care. Know that I AM.
Let My love embrace you and My strength secure you. You are safe with Me. Let Me whisper to your heart as you sleep and feel my comforting touch on your brow. Beloved, I cherish My children, and those who know Me rest secure.
Exodus 14:14 (NLT) The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”
Beloved, stand in faith – that is your role. Stand, trusting Me to fight on your behalf. Trusting that I will be victorious. Trusting Me. Rally your heart, and declare My name to the nations. Stand in agreement with all I AM – the Lord strong and mighty, victorious in battle.
Beloved, stay calm – calm because you trust Me at My word. If you believe My promises, what have you to fret over? I AM true to My word. I AM faithful from generation to generation. And I AM victorious.
Your calmness is warfare. It is a declaration of trust. It is a silent battle cry. It is an act of faith. Never underestimate the power of faith nor the weight an act of faith has in the spiritual realm. So stand in faith, beloved, and watch as I move.
Romans 12:18 (GW) As much as it is possible, live in peace with everyone.
Beloved, refuse to be drawn into fruitless arguments. They achieve no purpose but to create division and disunity. There will be moments to make a stand, but most moments are more fruitful when handled with humility and grace.
Love changes a heart far more effectively than the strongest argument, and it does so with peace. So first and foremost, interact with others from a place of love. In humility, seek to hear their hearts and respond with grace. Create an atmosphere of harmony, and from that base of relationship, deeper conversation can take place.
Psalm 63:8 (TPT) With passion I pursue and cling to you. Because I feel your grip on my life, I keep my soul close to your heart.
Beloved, cling to Me. Stay close and cuddle in. Wrapped together in beautiful harmony, our love satisfies. This love brings quiet. This love brings peace. Allow it to penetrate deep.
Then walk in this love with Me close in your heart and spread My peace around. Carry it far and wide, beloved. Take it to those in need. Like Moses your face will shine with My glory, My touch on your heart so clear to see. So love Me, beloved, and hover in close. Be changed by the power of My love.
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.
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.
Mark 4:39 (VOICE) He got up, shouted words into the wind, and commanded the waves. Jesus: That’s enough! Be still! And immediately the wind died down to nothing, the waves stopped.
Beloved, I AM YHVH Shalom, the Lord your peace, the One who calms the storm. I AM the giver of peace and I AM peace itself. Rest in Me.
Beloved, I make no promises that the winds and waves won’t come. Instead I promise I AM with you to calm the waves – whether those be inner or outer – to bring peace. So trust in Me and wait, for I AM good and I AM faithful. Rest in Me.
Proverbs 15:1 (NLT) A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare.
Beloved, you are called to love like Me and to live like Me. I AM slow to speak and slow to anger. I see the heart intentions behind words and actions and I respond accordingly. Refuse to allow your flesh to mandate your responses and instead with eyes of compassion look to the heart of things.
Respond rather than react in any situation. Be intentional and be like Me. Trust My Holy Spirit to empower you and give you the grace and wisdom you need regardless of circumstance. I AM your peace, so rest and trust in Me and refuse to be ensnared into a fleshly response. In your anger, sin not. Give grace and bear with one another in love and let the fruit of reconciliation come forth.
