Galatians 5:22 (AMP) But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is…goodness…
Beloved, let fruit pour forth from a rich relationship with Me. I AM always here, I AM always ready, and I always love you. Reach out to Me. Let Me be your nourishment. As the saying goes, you are what you eat, so dine on My word as the choicest of meats and drink deeply of My saturating love.
Then let goodness pour forth from your life – the fingerprints of Me made manifest. Bear fruit, beloved. Operate in integrity – simply because I see, and you desire to walk in a manner pleasing to Me. Do it with joy knowing the pleasure you bring. Let your light shine brightly. Set an example to others. Walk in the fullness of all I’ve made you for.
Psalm 119:130 (VOICE) When Your words are unveiled, light shines forth; they bring understanding to the simple.
Beloved, I bring wisdom through the revelation of My word. My word is a conduit for truth and understanding. As you wash yourself in it (taking the time to luxuriously bathe), I impart to you via divine revelation truths you have not yet known.
Seek Me, beloved. My word is My heart laid bare, know Me. Hear My heart cry and feel the depth of My longing for the hearts of My people. For the more of Me that is hidden in their hearts, the more radiant they become, and that glow draws others home to Me. A beautiful gift from My beloved to Me.
Matthew 20:34 (VOICE) Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they could see, and so they followed Him.
Beloved, I love you. Therefore My heart is easily moved with compassion toward you. You don’t need to beg or plead or bargain – I cannot be controlled or manipulated – but I love you, and I love you deeply. You move Me deeply.
So expect My touch of compassion in your life and on your heart, beloved, and then respond. When I touch you, you are changed – and that change moves you (just as you moved Me). When you are rightly aligned, you reflect Me and My heart of compassion, and so in turn you will touch others. Freely you have received, freely give.
It is worth the cost to extend your hand and bless another. Do not withhold. Reflect Me and My heart to give freely and generously on the kind and the cruel. Be My light, shining forth and move others as you have moved Me. Continue reading “Move Others as You Have Moved Me”
Malachi 3:12 (AMP) “All nations shall call you happy and blessed, for you shall be a land of delight,” says the Lord of hosts.
Beloved, choose Me – dedicate yourself and your resources to Me – and see how I will move. Your land will flourish, your people will prosper, and peace and joy will reign.
Those who love Me, declare it as so. Command the atmosphere. Come into agreement with My vision for your land. Declare over your nation that it shall be a people that serve the Lord. Minister to their hearts’, that they might see and know Me.
2 Timothy 1:7 (VOICE) You see, God did not give us a cowardly spirit but a powerful, loving, and disciplined spirit.
Beloved, let My love for you embolden you. Let it fill you with confidence in Me. You walk in victory when you walk with Me. Refuse discouragement. The enemy will always try to distract you with seeming failures and he loves to malign My character, but you know and walk in Truth.
Let victory be your song. Let My joy wrap through your soul filling you with strength. Radiate the assurance of one who knows Me. Be filled with the knowledge of Me and be overwhelmed by My love.
Galatians 5:22-23 (AMP) But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is…kindness,
Beloved, as My fruit multiplies within you, let it pour forth from your heart in the form of kindness. Be known for being one who is gracious and generous of spirit, full of mercy and overflowing with compassion. Let kindness be your trademark.
Nurture others’ wellbeing, making their interests your focus trusting that I will make yours My own. Encourage those around you to operate in joy and love simply by doing so yourself. Kindness is contagious. Spread it liberally!
Romans 12:3 (CJB) For I am telling every single one of you, through the grace that has been given to me, not to have exaggerated ideas about your own importance. Instead, develop a sober estimate of yourself based on the standard which God has given to each of you, namely, trust.
Beloved, refuse to let pride have any hold in your life. Nor let false humility take root. Seeing yourself as less than what You were created to be does just as much disservice to Me as your Creator as allowing yourself to be puffed up. Ask Me for an accurate understanding of who you are. Then when I tell you, believe Me. Allow Me to mold your understanding of yourself – what you’re capable of, who you’ve been created to be, how I see you, and who you truly are.
You have been fearfully and wonderfully made. Allowing yourself to believe that and using that which you’ve been given to its fullest honors Me. So resist the urge to hold back – whether you’re tempted to do so for fear of failure or because others are intimidated by the greatness in you or any reason in between – think only of pleasing Me, beloved. The thoughts and concerns of man should not hold more weight than Me. Trust Me. Trust My judgment in how I have created and called you. See yourself rightly and be all I have made you to be.
Psalm 18:11-12 (TPT) Wrapped and hidden in the thick-cloud darkness His thunder-tabernacle surrounding Him. He hid Himself in mystery-darkness, the dense rain clouds were His garments. Suddenly, the brilliance of His presence breaks through…
Beloved, in the shadow of the Almighty – My shadow – you are safe, protected, restored, recharged, prepared, transformed, and made whole. My brilliance breaks through – both from Me directly and from you as one who carries My presence. It is a deep warfare – light chasing the darkness – and not even chasing, dispelling. Almost like no fight is necessary, but simply to “be.” Simply to shine.
I bring beauty even in your night seasons, and reveal the mysteries of heaven in the hidden places. I AM the Revealer of Mysteries – Gelah Raz – the Holy One of Israel. Make Me your dwelling place, your shelter in the storm because even when the storm rages, My light prevails.
John 1:5 (AMPC) And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it].
Beloved, darkness cannot resist the light. It must surrender to it. I AM light. Everything is darkness compared to the light of My glory. But you, beloved, made in My image, are a carrier of My presence – My glory – therefore you also shine brightly, drawing those in darkness to the brilliance of your glow.
Do not be afraid of the darkness, for far greater is the Light within you. You have nothing to fear, the darkness merely highlights the splendor of your radiance. Christ in you, the hope of glory. Joy and salvation. Shine brightly and unashamedly. Like a prism bursting forth into beaming rays of opalescent light, so My children burst forth in facets of My beauty – glorious and splendid, a feast for My heart.
John 17:17 (AMP) Sanctify them in the truth [set them apart for Your purposes, make them holy]; Your word is truth.
Beloved, allow yourself to decrease that I might increase within you. Yield to My refining process. Let Me burn away the dross leaving you brilliant and sparkling that you may shine blindingly brightly. This is My sanctifying process. The process by which you become more like Me – more radiant – that your countenance might glow from My glory. Waves of glory!
I have new levels for you. Shifting the atmosphere and opening up heaven to draw you in closer still to Me. Allow Me to gently change you into the fullness of all I’ve called you to be. Give the process the time it needs, the journey itself is a blessing and rushing the process only causes you to miss points along the way so yield to both My process and My pace. I will increase My blessings upon you. Receive it, beloved. Continue reading “Yield to My Sanctification “
