I Surround You With My Favor 

Psalm 5:12 (AMP) For You, O Lord, bless the righteous man [the one who is in right standing with You]; You surround him with favor as with a shield.

Beloved, you never need to work to earn My favor – you already have it, you are clothed in it. You can focus on walking uprightly and cultivating relationship with Me because My favor isn’t anything you need to work for, it is given freely and surrounds you like a shield. I insulate and protect you because you are My beloved one in whom I AM well pleased.

Rest in that favor, knowing it is there for you – covering you – simply because you are Mine. Walk in the confidence that comes from knowing you are loved, cherished, and appreciated – for you are! I delight in you. You are the apple of My eye, My heart’s desire – the center of My world. Hear the love songs I sing over you and the sweet words of life and affection that I whisper in your ear. I AM with you always. I will never leave your side. You are priceless to Me. Rest in the safety of that understanding.

I AM the Way Maker

Ephesians 6:13 (AMP) …and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious].

Beloved, there are moments to fight, but there are moments where all that is left to do is stand fast. You’ve prepared, you’re equipped, you’re positioned – it’s time to simply be immovable and leave the rest to Me. Knowing you have all of heaven behind you – the hosts ready and willing to fight on your behalf – be steadfast.

This is the test of faith. To stand at the Red Sea with an enemy bearing down on you, and to trust the One who is trustworthy to make a way where there seems to be no way. I AM the way maker. I part the seas. Stand in faith allowing your stance to declare your confidence in your God – in Me. I will not let you down. I will meet you in that place for I AM faithful and I bring victory in My mighty hand.

Hear Me Roar

Proverbs 19:12 (VOICE) A king’s rage is like the thunderous roar of a lion, but his favor is like a cooling mist upon the grass.

Beloved, I fiercely love My children. I jealously guard them and have set My hosts around them to protect and battle on their behalf. You are Mine – My anointed people – and I roar over you. Do you not hear the sound? It reverberates through the heavens, and for everyone in that realm, there is no doubt you are under My protection.

Trust that I AM covering you. Even when you don’t see it. I AM thwarting the enemy’s plans left and right, protecting you from unseen dangers and traps. I AM covering you. I AM your rear guard and I go before you. I conquer the enemy and his attacks by day, and rebuke the enemy and his terrors by night. I AM with you and you are Mine. Continue reading “Hear Me Roar”

I AM Your Shelter

James 1:2-3 (TLV) Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.

Beloved, don’t shy away from hardships, rather seek Me in the midst of them. I AM the One who calms the storms and brings peace. I AM the One who brings beauty from ashes. Look to Me. I AM your ever-present help in times of trouble and I AM always with you. Quiet your spirit and seek Me. I AM your shelter in the storm, your cleft in the rock. And I AM working all things for good. I AM.

You are Mine 

2 Corinthians 6:18 (TPT) I will be a true Father to you, And you will be my beloved sons and daughters,” says the Lord Yahweh Almighty.

Beloved, I have adopted you and claimed you as My own. You are Mine and I am yours. You are accepted and not rejected, loved and not ignored, and treasured not marginalized. You matter to Me on a deep level. I call you My own.

It is My responsibility to protect you and provide for you. Stay under My wing and let Me. Don’t struggle against Me or push away simply because others have let you down. I’m not them. And in moments you feel like I’ve let you down, quietly trust that I AM working on your behalf even when you can’t see it.

You are Mine, beloved. I do not take that lightly. I cherish you. You are My beloved one. Let Me lavish you with My love.

Silk: I Am My Beloved’s

This is a fun silk because the Dyed4you Community birthed it together. I shared this image of a silk I’d created on our Dyed4you Ministries Facebook page and below are the pieces everyone shared. From that Father filled it out even more finishing out the new word for the silk called I Am My Beloved’s. I pray that the words ministers to you as well as the video I shared at the bottom with a pair of XL (light) dowel flags made in this style.  Continue reading “Silk: I Am My Beloved’s”

Kisses of My Mouth

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.

Right Perspective

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.

Your Life is in My Hands 

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.
