Trust Me

Proverbs 3:5 (AMPC) “Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.”

Deuteronomy 1:29 …”Don’t be scared! Don’t be afraid… You won’t have to fight this battle yourselves; the Eternal your God, who always goes ahead of you, will fight for you… haven’t you seen the Eternal, your True God, carrying you the way a parent carries a child? … He always goes ahead of you… He always shows you the right way to go.”

Daughter, {hearing the tender sound of His voice} I see you. I see your pain. I know it has not been easy for you. Yes, I do see the battle raging—trust Me, you are not alone. Refuse to fight this battle in your own strength—your efforts have left you wounded. You’re feeling hurt, tired and alone. Come, {hand reaching} allow Me to lead the way {wipes tears, takes hand}. Breathe, daughter. {takes a shallow breath} Breathe deep. {pauses, close her eyes and breathes deep. As she breathes she releases the tension and tears begin to stream as she let’s go of all fear and anxiety. As she breathes deep she can feel strength being restored and a renewed sense of peace and trust}. “Look around! Do you see Heaven’s armies?! I told you, you are not alone.” {She opens her eyes. She is overlooking a large city filled with multitudes of Angels who are fighting on her behalf}  Continue reading “Trust Me”

Follow the Beat of My Heart

1 John 4:18 (TPT) Love never brings fear, for fear is always related to punishment. But love’s perfection drives the fear of punishment far from our hearts. Whoever walks constantly afraid of punishment has not reached love’s perfection.

Beloved, be led by the sound of the beat of My heart. Resist the call of the world, which seeks to guide you through fear, guilt, and shame. You are My delight, and I created you for relationship with Me. Knowing Me is about so much more than a list of do’s and don’ts. It’s about more than work, projects, deadlines, and commissions. Continue reading “Follow the Beat of My Heart”

Still Yourself

Indeed, Be Still and know that I AM GOD!  How do you be still in this world of constant chatter and noise?  This world has many things to attract your attention. Every day is a challenge to find that quiet place.  But I tell you even in the middle of a busy day you can find your Still place.  You must learn to cultivate ME in your life so that anywhere you are, you can just breath and take a moment to seek that inner peace, which only comes from ME. Continue reading “Still Yourself”

YHVH Zimrath (the Lord your Song)

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.

Soak in the Sound of Heaven

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. 

Those Who Know Me Rest Secure

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. 

Rest In My Strength

2 Corinthians 12:9 (AMP) but He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you [My lovingkindness and My mercy are more than enough—always available—regardless of the situation]; for [My] power is being perfected [and is completed and shows itself most effectively] in [your] weakness.” Therefore, I will all the more gladly boast in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ [may completely enfold me and] may dwell in me.

Beloved, I am your strength. I am the very power that sustains your life. My ability to sustain you is much more than physical, and it is always available for you to draw on. However, never is My keeping power more apparent than in times when you feel the weakest. Yes, times of trial can be humbling. Through them, you learn to draw on My strength day to day, and moment to moment when necessary. But I do not wish for you lose sight of this truth, for this is who I am to all the days of your life. Continue reading “Rest In My Strength”

Stand in Faith

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.

Avoid Fruitless Arguments

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. 

Hover in Close

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.
