Steadfast Praise 

Psalm 149:6 (TPT) God’s high and holy praises fill their mouths, for their shouted praises are their weapons of war!

Beloved, as your praises rise, things begin to shift. As your praises rise, mountains begin to move. Just as a drip of water can change the face of a rock over time, never underestimate the power of your steadfast praise. 

Stay equipped. Hide the word in your heart and raise a banner or lift your voice high or dance before Me, beloved, but do something. Allow the fruit of your faith to pour forth from your heart. 

Your praise changes things. It shifts the atmosphere. It is powerful because I inhabit the praises of My people and I AM mighty beyond expectation or description. So be steadfast in your praise. 

Psalm 149:4-6 (TPT) For he enjoys his faithful lovers. He adorns the humble with his beauty and he loves to give them the victory. His godly lovers triumph in the glory of God, and their joyful praises will rise even while others sleep. God’s high and holy praises fill their mouths, for their shouted praises are their weapons of war!

Praises Rise

Psalm 149:5 (TPT) His godly lovers triumph in the glory of God, and their joyful praises will rise even while others sleep.

Beloved, let your praises rise. Let them rise both in triumph and in the expectation of it. Let it rise at all times. Your steadfast, joyful praise is an audible banner lifted high – a clear reminder to all of Who I AM: I AM God, the Lord of Hosts, the Mighty One, and I reign. 

Refuse to be silent. Refuse to be distracted. Let your joyful praise come forth like refreshing waters encouraging yourself and all those around you. You know who you are because you know Who I AM. Walk boldly in your identity as a child of Mine.  Continue reading “Praises Rise”

Humble and Yielded

Psalm 149:4 (TPT) For he enjoys his faithful lovers. He adorns the humble with his beauty and he loves to give them the victory.

Beloved, I delight to bring victory to those who rejoice in Me. It gives Me immense pleasure to bestow such blessings on those who have held nothing back. Love Me lavishly, sweet one, and without agenda – simply love because I loved you first.

Focus your heart on Me, and leave the battle plans to Me. Your role is humility – eyes and heart fixed on Me; My role is to be God and all that encompasses including knowing what is best for My children and leading them in that path as they yield. I have you, beloved. Continue reading “Humble and Yielded”

Shema (Hear and Obey)

Psalm 29:4 (NLT) The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic.

Beloved, I spoke and the world you know was created. At My word the earth was formed, and by My breath life was given. Nothing can resist the power of My Word. What I say is as good as done. So grab hold of truth – grab hold of My Word, and believe.

My sheep know My voice, so whether it comes as a gentle whisper or as roaring thunder, My children know My voice and they will respond. Those that love Me, obey Me. So respond to My voice, beloved. Shema, hear and obey.

Faithful to the End

Psalm 30:11 (VOICE) You did it: You turned my deepest pains into joyful dancing; You stripped off my dark clothing and covered me with joyful light.

Beloved, I AM faithful to the end. I always see you, for I AM El Roi, the God who sees. I AM equipped and fully able. I fiercely love My children. I AM devoted, and I move on your behalf. Rejoice in that victory. Give praise and honor to My name. Let the earth be filled with the sound of your joy, and may your life testify to the goodness of who I AM.

When the daylight comes and the night has passed, do not withhold your praise – not from a place of obligation, but from an overflow of love and joy. May your heart burst forth in zealous declaration that the God you serve – the only true God – is good and worthy of all praise.

Morning Dance

Psalm 126:5 (TLB) Those who sow tears shall reap joy.

Beloved, I have promised and I will deliver. I AM good to My word. Rest in a place of joyful expectation, even when the night is long and the sky looks dark, know that I AM with you, My angels surround you, and I AM faithful. I watch over My word to perform it. Stand fast and believe. Let joyful expectation be your mien.

Dance, beloved – as in your mourning you expect your morning, dance, for the dawn is coming. Worship as you wait, knowing I AM faithful. Knowing I AM good. Knowing I AM with you. And knowing I AM worthy. Give praise, and give it freely and without reserve. Bring forth your mourning dance that it might become your morning dance. Continue reading “Morning Dance”

I Will Respond

Psalm 107:28-29 (TPT) Then we cried out, “Lord, help us! Rescue us!” And he did! God stilled the storm, calmed the waves, and he hushed the hurricane winds to only a whisper.

Beloved, I do not turn a blind eye nor are My ears closed to your cries. I AM ever aware of your needs – mindful of each and every one. Like a father standing beside a tearful child, ready and waiting to pull them into his arms the moment the child reaches his way, so I AM with you, ready and waiting.

Call to Me and I will answer. Raise your voice in faith, trusting that I will respond. I AM a good Father. And I AM God Most Able and God Most High. Nothing is too hard for Me.

Run to Me (Elohim Misgab)

Psalm 59:17 (TLB) O my Strength, to you I sing my praises; for you are my high tower of safety, my God of mercy.

Beloved, run to Me. When trials and temptation come, refuse to be dismayed or overwhelmed. Simply run to Me. Just as Joseph fled Potiphar’s wife, refuse to flirt with things that will hurt you or lead you away from Me. Run to Me.

I AM Elohim Misgab, God your defense. I AM ever ready and more than able to move on your behalf and protect you from that which seeks to derail you or do you harm. So run to Me – your strong tower, your fortress, your refuge, and your defense. Continue reading “Run to Me (Elohim Misgab)”

Look for Me in the Storm

Psalm 89:9 (TLB) You rule the oceans when their waves arise in fearful storms; you speak, and they lie still.

Beloved, refuse to be intimidated as the winds and waves rage around you, and look for Me in the eye of the storm. I AM your peace, YHVH Shalom – the Lord your Peace, and I AM always with you. Find your rest in Me.

When the storms come, pause to breathe and regroup. Fix your gaze on Me. Refuse to allow the chaos to mandate your internal landscape. I have given you My peace, none can take it away, so hold it fast and refuse to let go.

Refuse to make room for chaos and confusion. Instead look to Me in the midst of the Storm, for I will guide you with My eye. I will bring order and rest that no circumstance can alter. See clearly, beloved, and let that peace that I have given you radiate out and shift the atmosphere.

You are My carrier of peace. Release it to the world, changing it rather than allowing it to change you. I AM your strength. I AM your joy. I AM your peace. And I AM steadfast. Continue reading “Look for Me in the Storm”

The Shadow of My Wings

Psalm 17:8 (VOICE) Keep close watch over me as the apple of Your eye; shelter me in the shadow of Your wings.

Beloved, you are My precious one. You never leave My sight. My love and protection are steadfast. My devotion is never ending. I AM Olam Zeroa, the Everlasting Arms. My comfort and security are always here for you.

Choose to remain in My safety. Choose to remain close. Burrow in and lavish Me with your love; abide in Me. Reside in the shadow of My wings. There is safety there and I AM all you need.
