Matthew 6:24 (MSG) You can’t worship two gods at once. Loving one god, you’ll end up hating the other. Adoration of one feeds contempt for the other. You can’t worship God and Money both.
Beloved, choose Me. Throughout history, My heartcry remains the same: that I would be your God and you would be My people. Refuse to give place to any idol, or to hold anything in greater reverence than Me. I will not be content to share your adoration, for I AM worthy of your singleminded devotion.
Only I bring true peace. Only I bring true contentment. Only I bring true security. Refuse the temptation to look to your own provision to offer those things remembering that even your provision comes from Me. It cannot love you nor fulfill your heart’s desires anymore than the idols made of wood and clay. Only I AM able to bring true fulfillment. Look to Me and refuse to look away. I AM all you need.
1 Timothy 5:18 (AMP) For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle the ox while it is treading out the grain [to keep it from eating],” and, “The worker is worthy of his wages [he deserves fair compensation].”
Beloved, refuse the temptation to operate in a poverty mindset – constantly trying to get something for nothing. Surely you remember that the silver and gold are Mine? When you’re living a lifestyle submitted to Me, you can rest in the knowledge that that which I desire you to have, I will provide for.
So rather than trying to cheapen the value I have placed on someone’s work or by trying to rob them of their wages, be excited about the opportunity to sow into their lives, trusting that fertile soil will bear fruit and rejoicing that you get to have some small part in it.
Be wise with whatever I’ve entrusted you with – be it great or small. This means being obedient to use it in the ways I direct you, not working so hard to stretch it that you’re actively cheating others (whether intentionally or not). Remember I love a cheerful giver, I love a generous heart. Refuse to have that stolen by a fear of lack, or be tempted into greed or envy – constantly desiring that which I have not provided for.
Trust Me. Trust that I have reasons for what I’ve provided for and what I have not, and that those reasons have nothing to do with whether I love you or not – for that is never in question. Be thankful for what you have and find contentment there.
Rest in Me and look to Me. Trust Me to provide for your needs. Refusing to accuse Me of shortchanging you, regardless of circumstance. I AM faithful, and I love you – always. Stand fast in your belief that I AM good.
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.
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. Continue reading “I AM Your Source”
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. Continue reading “I Love a Cheerful Giver”
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.
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”
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.
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.
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.
