Song of Solomon 2:4 (AMP) “He has brought me to his banqueting place, And his banner over me is love [waving overhead to protect and comfort me].
I cover you with My love – shielding and cocooning you. Protecting, encouraging, nurturing, and restoring you with My presence and the fervency of My devotion. I nourish you with the sweetest of kisses from My mouth. Pause, beloved, and feel My love overtake you. Nothing have I withheld from you. The depths of My heart for you are incalculable so do not try to measure it, simply receive it as the gift it is. Let it be sustenance to your weary soul.
Watch for My kisses from heaven as I move in your life and the world around you. I AM leaving love notes for you everywhere, simply pay attention and find them. Notice even the most minute details I have aligned to demonstrate My love for you: whether it be in the rainbows and flowers that bring a smile, or the butterfly in a moment you needed to be reminded of beauty; the rainy nights that sooth your soul, or the vibrant sunshine that warms your heart – I AM here and I AM moving. I AM moving all around you, see Me. My heart is on display.
Ephesians 6:10-11 (VOICE) Finally, brothers and sisters, draw your strength and might from God. Put on the full armor of God to protect yourselves from the devil and his evil schemes.
Draw from Me, beloved. I AM your strength. I AM your might. I AM power and authority. You are not alone out in a storm. I AM with you, beside you. So command the storm to be still beloved in My name, and whether the external or internal landscape changes, strength and peace are yours.
Gird up your loins. Without hiding My word in your heart you are defenseless, beloved. So eat it as those it were the choicest of meats bringing you strength and stamina because it does and it will. Know Me. Encourage yourself in the faith by seeing Me more and more for who I AM. Magnify Me in your own eyes so you might realize the enemy is no match for Me. As you know Me, you will be able to quiet your soul against the taunts of the enemy because you will know – TRULY know – that I AM greater. I AM.
Exodus 14:20 (VOICE) The cloud pillar took its position between Egypt’s and Israel’s camps. The cloud cast darkness by day yet it lit up the sky by night. As a result, the Egyptians never got close to the Israelites the entire night.
For behold My presence protects and guards you. You don’t have to worry who has you covered because the answer is Me. It is I who will defend you. Do not step into My path to try to “help” for in doing so you are simply taking matters into your own hands. The things that concern you, concern Me. Your life is in My hands, you placed it there when you gave your life to Me. Trust Me to cover you.
Your reputation is Mine, and I have said that every tongue that rises against you will be judged (Isaiah 54:17); beloved, do not defend yourself to others – it is My job and I do it happily. Simply keep your eyes fixed on Me and My call for your life; walk it out and leave the rest to Me.
Isaiah 54:17 (VOICE) But no instrument forged against you will be allowed to hurt you, and no voice raised to condemn you will successfully prosecute you. It’s that simple; this is how it will be for the servants of the Eternal; I will vindicate them.
I hold your life dear, beloved, and the enemy longs to snatch it from you. Guard the wellspring of your soul, your heart. Know that the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy and his gaze is on you. But do not be afraid, for I AM with you and we walk in victory, in truth, and in righteousness. Stand fast and see the deliverance of the Lord.
I AM faithful. I AM true. I AM steadfast and unchanging. You can rely on Me and trust Me with your heart and with your life. I have given My angels charge over you – to guard and protect you – and My heavenly hosts will not fail. Amen.
