James 1:7 (TPT) When you are half-hearted and wavering it leaves you unstable. Can you really expect to receive anything from the Lord when you’re in that condition?
Beloved, refuse to be blown about by circumstances and emotions instead choosing to be quietly and firmly rooted in Me. Seek My will and trust it when I give you wisdom. Step out in faith knowing I AM faithful to guide each step. Refuse to give ear to the enemy’s lies and distractions. Stay firm.
Beloved, you know My sheep know My voice and that I graciously give wisdom to all who ask, so be at peace – knowing full well I AM more than able to steer you through any storm and quiet your heart as you allow Me to. Waiting upon Me is not a place of inaction, but rather a state of readiness. Being willing and yielded to go with My flow and allowing My Spirit to guide. Lay down the burden of “figuring things out” and seek Me. I AM faithful to lead, faithful to guide, and faithful to provide.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NKJV) To everything [there is] a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:
Beloved, resist the urge to cling to a moment if I AM drawing it to a close. Trust that – though yet unknown to you – the next season will be as beautiful and needful as the last, and each in their own unique way.
Celebrate the end. Give honor to the One who ordained it. But refuse to cling to that which is complete, instead embracing the hope of what is to come. Beloved, enjoy the sunset and await the dawn. I AM the beginning and the end. I AM the bringer of life. Hope in Me. Continue reading “Enjoy the Sunset and Await the Dawn”
Psalm 112:5 (VOICE) Good comes to all who are gracious and share freely; they conduct their affairs with sound judgment.
Beloved, just as I have extended grace to you, you (being made in My image) should be intentional about extending grace to others. Freely you’ve received, freely give. Withholding grace speaks more to your character than to the recipient’s worth, so be known as one who is gracious and generous in spirit.
If it is within your power to be a blessing, resist the temptation to withhold it. Trust My leading and operate as a conduit for Me to bless others through. Closing down that pipeline doesn’t actually give you more, but rather it stagnates the flow. So open wide – holding everything loosely – what I prompt you to give won’t feel like a loss because of the magnitude of blessings on their way down the pipeline for you and for you to generously share. Continue reading “Be a Conduit of Blessing and Grace”
Ecclesiastes 3:1 For everything that happens in life—there is a season, a right time for everything under heaven
Beloved, everything I do has a rhythm and a flow. Each thing in its perfect timing. Like an orchestra playing a powerful piece of music and each instrument, each melody, each beat needs to be in perfect timing – flawlessly synchronized – to create the desired harmony. Creation is orchestrated for My glory. All are blessed and moved by the way things align, like shivers from a sweeping arpeggio or a grand crescendo.
Each season, each moment perfectly timed. Yield to My flow. Trust My rhythm. I AM always on time: never early, never late. Move with Me – not trying to rush ahead, nor trying to drag your feet. Experience the exquisiteness of My harmony.
Psalm 1:3 And he will be like a tree firmly planted [and fed] by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season; Its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers [and comes to maturity].
Beloved, be firmly rooted in My Spirit. Yield to His leading and flow. The Spirit can teach you all things, He will not lead you astray. He will refresh and restore you, guide and grow you, and instruct you and give you insight. Under His tutelage, you will prosper and bear fruit, bearing it abundantly as you flourish. Yield to the Spirit, beloved, trust Our heart for you. Continue reading “Prosper and Mature “
2 Corinthians 3:17 (AMPC) Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom).
Beloved, My Spirit brings freedom. Receiving Me is receiving My Spirit. You are a slave to bondage no more. My Spirit lives within you. The traps of the enemy cannot hold you as you surrender yourself to Me. Let My Spirit lead and guide you. Be sensitive to My flow. I will direct you, I will teach you, and I will convict you. Trust Me to lead you rightly (and trust Me to lead others rightly as they surrender to Me too).
I can open the door to your cage, but I cannot force you to fly. You must choose to fly free. I have made a way, but you must walk it out. Beloved, soar with Me. You’ve been released – the chains broken – don’t believe the enemy’s lies that you are still his hostage. The blood has paid the price, you need not try to pay it again – it is already covered – simply move in the freedom that came at so high a cost.
Isaiah 40:28 (TLB) Don’t you yet understand? Don’t you know by now that the everlasting God, the Creator of the farthest parts of the earth, never grows faint or weary? No one can fathom the depths of his understanding.
Beloved, I AM the idea maker. I never run out of ideas. My creativity knows no bounds. Take My hand and create with Me. I love to share in the joy of bringing forth new life and ideas into being. I AM the Creator. Listen for My whisper and be moved by the touch of My hand. I declared light into being, and it came forth. Behold the smallest detail on the daintiest flower is My design. I AM beautiful and I bring forth beauty.
I will paint the sky as you paint with words. I will create new colors as you blend your palette. I will bring forth music as you sing a new song. Don’t hold back. Don’t censor yourself, or restrain or limit your creativity, allow it to flow and My Spirit to flow through you. Let your work reflect My heart and My kingdom. Bring forth aspects of My glory and My grandeur. Make Me known in the earth.
2 Samuel 5:24 (VOICE) When you hear the sound of a mighty army marching, reverberating in the tops of the balsam trees, come quickly and fight, for the Eternal has gone ahead of you into battle to destroy the army of the Philistines.
Beloved, listen for My sound. Listen for My heartbeat. Listen for the sound of Me moving – taking action. Tune in your spiritual senses to My frequency so you may be alert to how I AM moving. I want you to know. I do not want you to be surprised. I want you aligned with Me – in step with My cadence – so catch My rhythm and move with Me.
When we align, the results that come forth have supernatural impact. Like when the walls of Jericho fell at the sound of the blasts and the shouts of Israel, when My people align with Me – My heartbeat, My rhythm, My sound – and move with Me, I move in power and darkness trembles. Hear Me, beloved, and move with My sound!
Amos 3:7 (TLV) For the Lord Adonai, will do nothing, unless He has revealed His counsel to His servants the prophets.
Joshua 6:20 (ESV) …As soon as the people heard the sound of the trumpet, the people shouted a great shout, and the wall fell down flat…
Romans 8:5-8 (MSG) Those who think they can do it on their own end up obsessed with measuring their own moral muscle but never get around to exercising it in real life. Those who trust God’s action in them find that God’s Spirit is in them—living and breathing God!…
Beloved, I have placed a power in you – My Spirit – that cannot be contained or controlled. And you are a vessel that I AM moving through mightily. My authority rests upon you. Move in it unapologetically. I have called you to touch My people and to bring My healing and restoration. You are My hands and feet, reflecting My heart, so that others may know Me and know Me more deeply. This is a weighty responsibility, to demonstrate My heart to those who need Me so desperately, but it is not a burden for you, it is simply a sober responsibility. But beloved, you wear it lightly, allowing Me to share that weight, and simply flowing in My spirit and it is beautiful. Thank you for allowing Me to move through you in such mighty and powerful ways.
I love you so deeply. But My love for you is not because of your yieldedness and willingness to move on My behalf, but rather simply because you are My precious child. And yet I love partnering with you to change lives. Thank you for being willing to lay yourself bare for the good of others. Walk in the fullness of all I have called you to, My blessing and My hand rest upon you.
1 Kings 19:12 (TLB) And after the earthquake, there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire, there was the sound of a gentle whisper.
Beloved, I AM the Lion AND the Lamb. The roar and the whisper. The thunder and the gentle breeze. Stay fluid and surrendered to My flow. Be mindful not to try to box Me in, or to say, “He only speaks this way” or “He only speaks that way.” I will not be contained or controlled. I defy definition simply because I AM beyond comprehension. Allow Me to choose the tone, the volume, the message…let My spirit govern the flow – for I see things you do not and have reasons for everything I do.
Quiet your spirit and stay open – malleable – in an active form of waiting; a state of readiness awaiting a word or a nudge from Me. Keep your wick trimmed and your oil ready, for the call is coming and you want to be found ready.
