Genesis 1:14-15 (AMP) Then God said, “Let there be light-bearers (sun, moon, stars) in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be useful for signs (tokens) [of God’s provident care], and for marking seasons, days, and years; and let them be useful as lights in the expanse of the heavens to provide light on the earth”; and it was so, [just as He commanded].
1 Timothy6:12 (AMP) Fight the good fight of the faith [in the conflict with evil]; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and [for which] you made the good confession [of faith] in the presence of many witnesses.
There is a time and a season for everything. Knowledge cannot change what time is sent to do. We need to stand firm in what time and season God has called us to and not waver from the promises He has established. He will fulfill those promises and bring them to pass as long as we stand firm in His truth and the knowledge that He is trustworthy. Continue reading “Marking the Seasons”
Psalm 77:1 (VOICE) I cry up to heaven, “My God, True God,” and He hears.
Beloved, when you cry out to Me, I always hear. No matter where you are or what you’ve done, I AM always listening. I do not turn a deaf ear to you in punishment or neglect. Those who know Me know that does not align with My character.
Just as an earthly parent uses wisdom in granting their children’s requests, so do I. In the moments I don’t respond the way you expected, know that is not a sign of My neglect, but rather of your inappropriate expectations. I’m not a genie in a bottle to call and command, so be sure that is not your expectation.
What I AM is El Chai – the Living God, and I love My children, and am mindful of their needs and their cries – of all things concerning them. So know that I AM present and listening. I will never leave you nor forsake you. So cry out to Me, beloved, for I AM listening.
Psalm 52:1 (VOICE) Why do you boast of all the trouble you stir up, O mighty one, when the constant, unfailing love of God is what truly lasts?
Beloved, refuse to be moved when the perceived victories of the enemy are flaunted in your face. Stir up your faith, and remind yourself that I AM the victorious One, and you stand with Me. And My love is everlasting.
So wait for the end of the story – for if My Son’s story ended on the cross, it would be a sad one indeed. But that was not the end, beloved. He rose again – in victory over death.
So when the outlook looks bleak, stand fast in your faith and declare the truth of who I AM: YHVH Melek Olam – Lord King Forever, and I reign in victory.
Proverbs 18:10 (TPT) The character of God is a tower of strength, for the lovers of God delight to run into his heart and be exalted on high.
Beloved, I AM sovereign, and I AM strong. I AM YHVH Tsur – the Lord your strength, and YHVH Misgab – the Lord your Strong Tower. I AM unchanging – the alpha and omega, the same yesterday, today, and forever. Rest in Me.
My character is infallible. It creates a safe and stable foundation for you – a place you can rely on. Rest in Me. My name reflects My character, for I AM that I AM. Remember, beloved, run to Me, rest in Me, and rely on Me, for I AM wholly faithful and ever true.Continue reading “Run, Rest, Rely”
Psalm 145:13 (VOICE) Your kingdom will never end; Your rule will endure forever. [You are faithful to Your promise, and Your acts are marked with grace.]
Beloved, My dominion is everlasting. My sovereignty knows no end. There is no promise I will be unable to fulfill or whose outcome is beyond My reach. Rest in My hands. Trust your heart and hopes and dreams to Me.
Will I ignore the pleas of My children? Am I a bad father who neglects those he is called to cover and protect? Surely not! I AM slow to anger and rich in mercy, and I keep My promises from generation to generation. Trust yourself in My hands.
Matthew 6:13 (KJV) …For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
Beloved, see Me for who I AM: Lord of all, Adon Olam – the Master of the World, Sovereign of the Universe – and I AM the ultimate authority. See Me as I AM, for in doing so your faith will rise. And allow that faith to increase your understanding that truly nothing is too difficult for Me.
Numbers 23:24 (VOICE) Look at this people rise up like a lion, like a lion who gets up and does not lie down until it devours its prey, even drinking the blood of the slain.
Beloved, rise up at My roar. Refuse to back down. You’ve no need to be intimidated, for the Lord of Hosts is your God and forever will I reign. So stand tall and proud, and take your place beside your King.
Refuse to shrink back, but rather move boldly – empowered by My Spirit, and walk in victory. For with Me, beloved, victory is assured. I AM the victorious One, and you belong to Me.
Deuteronomy 10:12 (VOICE) And now, Israel, what is the Eternal your God asking of you? Only that you fear Him, live as He wants you to, and love Him; serve Him with every part of you, heart and soul;
For much of my faith journey, I have struggled to understand how a believer can both fear and love God. It always seemed that fear and love were an antithesis to one another. Through many preachers I had been told that God had the right to wipe me from existence for any one of my sins. How could I love and get close to someone who had the power to take my life?
