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.

I AM Your Source

Haggai 2:8 (NLT) The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.

Beloved, I AM your source of supply. Be at peace and trust Me. Resist the urge to hold on tightly to what you have (for I cannot put anything into a closed hand) as well as the urge to be reckless or indulgent. Ask Me not just for provision, but for wisdom on what to do with what you have. Then be obedient to the instructions I give.

Strive to be content. Be thankful for all you do have rather than obsessing over that which you don’t. Seek My heart rather than simply My blessing for My heart is the true prize just as yours is the greatest gift you can give Me. Understand true value, beloved, for the trappings of this world are only temporary. Focus on that which is everlasting.

Psalm 37:25 (NLT) Once I was young, and now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned or their children begging for bread.

I Love a Cheerful Giver

1 John 3:17 (TLB) But if someone who is supposed to be a Christian has money enough to live well, and sees a brother in need, and won’t help him—how can God’s love be within him?

Beloved, give generously as I give generously to you. Focus on the blessings you have with gratitude rather than allowing the enemy to distract you with insatiable desires for all you don’t. I supply for every need. I delight in blessing My children.

So sow as you would reap. Live with an open hand allowing Me to move through you to bless others just as I bless you through those around you. Refuse to operate from a poverty mindset. Rejoice in your ability to bless others regardless of whether it is something great or small. A heart of obedience is beautiful and I love a cheerful giver.

Safe in My Hands

Isaiah 26:3 (VOICE) You will keep the peace, a perfect peace, for all who trust in You, for those who dedicate their hearts and minds to You.

Beloved, take your hands off the wheel and let Me drive. You don’t need to be in control to be safe, on the contrary, doing so only brings the illusion of control. Like Dumbo’s feather, the illusion of control brings you a sense of peace, but it is not founded in truth. You are a child of the Light. Truth is your inheritance.

Beloved, release it all to Me. In My hands is the only place you are truly safe. As you shift control into My capable hands, it may feel awkward and uncomfortable at first, but know that over time, the burden it has lifted from you will feel more freeing than you can imagine.

Remember beloved that I AM the first and the last, the beginning and the end. I see it all. I know what is coming and know exactly where you should be positioned and what provision you’ll need. As you trust Me and yield to Me, I make you ready. I AM worthy of your trust. Lay down the idol of needing to understand and fully release yourself in to My care, for I love you and I will never leave you. You are safe in My hands.

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”

Ripe With Possibility

Song of Solomon 2:13 (TLB) The leaves are coming out, and the grapevines are in blossom. How delicious they smell! Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.’

Beloved, the time is ripe and the harvest season upon us. Open the doors of the storehouses and prepare to fill them with the choicest fruits.

Awaken your senses! Be aware of all the possibilities around you. The moment is ripe with possibility. Be alert. Tune in. Align with My frequency and wait on Me. The time is now. Break forth. Burst forth. As you have sown, you shall receive.

Take the Limits Off Your Expectations of Me 

Isaiah 45:3 (JUB) And I will give thee the hidden treasures and the well-guarded secrets that thou may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who gives thee thy name.

Beloved, nothing is hidden from Me. I haven’t lost anything nor will I ever struggle to put something in your hand. I AM sovereign. Be a yielded vessel and truly surrender all you have to Me that I may position you and equip you as I desire. Hold Me and relationship with Me dearest of all.

I will whisper to you secret things you have not known.  I will supernaturally provide for you. I will move in and through you in ways you cannot imagine. See with My eyes and hear with My heart. Know that each soul is more valuable to Me than any amount of silver. Discern true worth and refuse to be sucked in by the world’s system. Allow Me to move. Take the limits off your expectations of Me and give Me room to perform.

No Portion, Right, or Memorial 

Nehemiah 2:20 (GW) “The God of heaven will give us success,” I answered them. “We, his servants, are going to rebuild. You have no property or claim or historic right in Jerusalem.”

Beloved, I AM the God of heaven. Success comes from My hand. Trust Me to bless and prosper you as you walk in My will and are obedient to My direction. Resist the urge to be distracted or derailed by those claiming to want to help. Be sensitive to My Spirit that I may give you discernment.

The enemy is a trespasser. He will always try to take new territory. Hold fast your boundaries. Say “thus far and no farther.” Enforce his lack of claim. Insist on his lack of rights. When it comes to you and that which is yours, you are Mine; therefore, he has no portion, right, or memorial. You are Mine.

Trust Me to Guide and Provide 

Haggai 2:8 (NIV) ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the Lord Almighty.

Beloved, the silver and gold are Mine. Wealth and honor come from Me alone. Cease striving in your flesh and look to Me – the Author and Finisher of your faith – to meet your needs. Don’t seek man’s favor or approval, seek relationship with Me and I will give you favor where I would have you have it. I will open doors that cannot be shut for you to walk through, and close the ones where you should not go so that none can open them.

Trust Me to guide and provide. With joy give, and gratitude receive. Follow My lead. Nothing is to hard for Me. Quiet yourself and listen for My voice to instruct you, “this is the way, walk ye in it.” I will not lead you astray, trust My plans and My purpose. Trust Me. I AM mindful of your needs without you saying a word. I AM a good Father.

1 Chronicles 29:11-12 (TLB) Yours is the mighty power and glory and victory and majesty. Everything in the heavens and earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as being in control of everything. Riches and honor come from you alone, and you are the ruler of all mankind; your hand controls power and might, and it is at your discretion that men are made great and given strength.
