Matthew 5:16 (VOICE) You are like that illuminating light. Let your light shine everywhere you go, that you may illumine creation, so men and women everywhere may see your good actions, may see creation at its fullest, may see your devotion to Me , and may turn and praise your Father in heaven because of it.
Beloved, you are My ambassador, a representative of Me. Choose your actions accordingly for the world will know Me through you. May you walk in mercy. May you extend much grace. And may you saturate those around you with love. May you walk in humility and give compassion without reserve.
These fruits of My Spirit on display are a bright light slicing through the darkness surrounding you. The actions speak louder than any words could – penetrating even the hardest of hearts. So emanate light, beloved. Throw it forth liberally and without reserve that the world might see and know I AM good.
Isaiah 54:17 (VOICE) But no instrument forged against you will be allowed to hurt you, and no voice raised to condemn you will successfully prosecute you. It’s that simple; this is how it will be for the servants of the Eternal; I will vindicate them.
Beloved, My voice thunders. It out blasts and supersedes every other voice. I always have the last word and My word never returns void. It always accomplishes that which it sets out to do.
My quietest whisper carries more weight than any other utterance. Fret not over the voices that surround you and instead seek Me for My word on every matter, for in the end, nothing else matters. I will have the last word and it will prevail.
Exodus 17:15 (NLT) Moses built an altar there and named it Yahweh-Nissi (which means “the Lord is my banner”).
Beloved, I AM your banner, your miracle, your declaration of victory. Lift Me high. Exalt Me and lift your hands in holy reverence for I AM worthy of your praise. I AM a sign and a symbol to any who would look that you have been set free. You have overcome.
In honor of Me, lift your hands. In honor of Me, raise high your symbol of victory. Your unabashed faith in who I AM and willingness to hold nothing back are powerful messages in the spiritual realm. You declare Me faithful – your very actions announcing to any with ears to hear that I AM God and I AM worthy of your devotion. Praise Me for I AM good.

Nehemiah 8:10 (GW) …Don’t be sad because the joy you have in the Lord is your strength.
Beloved, when you find your joy in Me, it is unshakable. I AM the same yesterday, today, and forever, so when you root yourself in Me, you have a foundation that is solid. It cannot be moved by outside forces. When your joy is in Me, it cannot be stolen. There is strength in that foundation.
As trials in life come – and they surely will – they cannot steal your joy because it is found in Me. Draw strength from that. The winds and waves may come, but your roots are in solid ground. Draw strength from Me. I AM unchanging and unwavering. I AM the one that holds you as priceless and loves you beyond measure. Be rooted in that love.
But beloved be cautioned, you can choose to release your joy. It cannot be taken from you, but you can give it up. So refuse the temptation to give in. The enemy will lie and cheat and steal to try to release your hold on what is rightfully yours, but refuse to yield. Hold tight and be unshakable.
Ezekiel 22:30 (VOICE) I searched for one man among them, a man who could build the wall and stand in the gap before Me and advocate for the land, a man who could convince Me not to destroy it; but I found no one.
Beloved, don’t underestimate the impact of one person, one voice. I am looking for one person to agree with My heart, let that be you. Stay tuned to My frequency. Let what moves Me, move you. Then respond accordingly. Trust My Spirit to lead.
The enemy will always seek for ways to silence and distract you, so keep your heart in tune with Mine and refuse to be silenced, refuse to be scattered, refuse to be moved. Never underestimate the power of one, the power you hold as you align with Me. Continue reading “The Power of One”
Acts 18:9 (TLB) One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision and told him, “Don’t be afraid! Speak out! Don’t quit!
Beloved, refuse to shrink back. Refuse to be cowed. No ploy of the enemy or criticism of man is worth bowing to fear. I AM with you. My grace sustains you. You are worthy and beloved by Me – not for what you do, but for who you are. And yet stand fast, refuse to be moved. Refuse to allow your testimony to be tarnished or stolen. You are able to withstand. My grace is sufficient.
For I, even I, have put the words in your mouth. So let them flow forth – allowing them to flow unhindered – planting seeds and watering each in their season. And watch beloved, for I will surely plant them in fertile ground and that will yield beautiful fruit. Rich is the reward.
Revelation 12:11 (KJV) And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Beloved, the threat of death no longer hangs over you for I have given you everlasting life. The enemy cannot steal this gift. Though he will try to thwart My plans in the earthly realm, eternity is in My hand and you, beloved, are Mine.
In this place of life is freedom, for no threat can change your eternal home as you cling steadfastly to Me. And in that freedom you are made whole. In that freedom, your light shines brightly – radiantly reflecting My glory – and drawing others to My Son.
Refuse to be dimmed. Refuse to be intimidated, clinging steadfastly to the truth of Who I AM. I AM YHVH, the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, the Eternal One, and I reign.
Psalm 104:33 (TLB) I will sing to the Lord as long as I live. I will praise God to my last breath!
Beloved, break forth in song – refuse to be made silent. For your delight is a blessing to Me and brings glory to My name. It shifts the atmosphere and declares My goodness. It magnifies Me and brings honor to My name. So sing, precious songbird, sing!
Never discount the power of your song. The sound coming forth breaks chains and sets the captives free. The angels respond to your voice – even the armies of heaven move out on the notes carried by your breath. Your voice changes things. It shifts things in the unseen realm as well as the seen. Refuse to be silent anointed songbird, release what I have placed within you for it is lovely and more powerful than you know.
Revelation 12:4 (AMP) And his tail swept [across the sky] and dragged away a third of the stars of heaven and flung them to the earth. And the dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child.
Be mindful beloved, that the evil one is always waiting to steal your fruit and destroy your inheritance. And yet, victory is already in your hand. Be aware, but not overwhelmed. Refuse to be intimidated or to surrender to fear. Stand tall and be steadfast, victory is assured.
Trust My Spirit to lead and instruct. Stay in the flow. Nothing is too hard for Me. The enemy of your soul will not overtake you, refuse to allow him to distract your gaze, press into Me. Together we will fight. Together we will succeed. Like a dragon slayer of old, no foe is too great to defeat. I AM with you.
Matthew 5:43-48 (TPT) …respond to the very ones who persecute you by praying for them…
Beloved, prayer releases people and situations into My very capable hands. Refuse to be impressed by the hurtful words and actions the enemy would distract you with, and instead see with My eyes and perceive what is at the root.
Pray healing and restoration over those who would do you harm. That in no way gives approval to their wrongs, it simply shifts the spiritual atmosphere and makes room for Me to move. Be intentional to invite Me into every moment and trust Me to move. Continue reading “Make Room for Me to Move”
