Train Your Gaze on Me

Exodus 23:13 (VOICE) Be careful to do all that I have instructed you. Do not even acknowledge the names of other gods or let their names spill from your lips.

Beloved, refuse to acknowledge the enemy by giving him credit in your life. I AM your God and I will not share with another. Resist the urge to point at his opposition and use it as a barometer for your walk saying, “I know I am doing something right because he is opposing me.” The enemy will always oppose you because I love you. He will always lay traps to ensnare you because you are precious to me.

Look to Me, beloved, and keep your eyes fixed. Trust that I will guide you with My eye. Train your gaze upon Me never allowing it to waver. I AM the Lord your God. I AM the faithful God. Keeping My promises from generation to generation. My promise you have. My love you have. My acceptance you have. I AM all you need.

Psalm 32:8 (NKJV) I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

Deuteronomy 7:9 (NLT) Understand, therefore, that the Lord your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands.

Come Soar in My Love

Exodus 13:22 (GW) The column of smoke was always in front of the people during the day. The column of fire was always there at night.

Beloved, I AM always with you and I will never leave you. Abide with Me. Absorb the peace found in My presence and let your spirit take flight. As you soar with Me, feel the wind of My Spirit. Let Me bring you higher and higher. Trust Me.

Place your hand in Mine, beloved. Let Me carry you away. Behold, you are beautiful My love and you have captured My heart. You have captivated My gaze. You are the apple of My eye, the center of my world. Just as young lovers cannot get enough of each other’s presence, so I long to be with you. Will you abide with Me? Come soar in My love.

Look to Me

Isaiah 33:22 (NLT) For the Lord is our judge, our lawgiver, and our king. He will care for us and save us.

Beloved, resist the urge to lean on yourself or to look to a human to care and provide. For ultimately I AM the one truly reliable and steadfast, and though I may work through those around you to minister to your needs, always remember I AM the source.

I AM Palet (your deliverer) and El Elyon (God Most High). I AM where your help comes from. I AM Elohim Mishpat (God of Judgment/Justice). I AM Elohim Emeth (True God/God of Truth). I make wrong things right. I save the lives of My children, and I cherish and protect them. I AM their provider (YHVH Yireh) and I AM YHVH Nissi (the Lord your banner/your victory/miracle). Depend on Me. Continue reading “Look to Me”

Unflinching Faith

Daniel 3:17 (TLV) If it is so, our God whom we serve is able to save us from the furnace of blazing fire and He will deliver us out of your hand, O king.

Beloved, refuse to allow circumstances to alter your faith. Be steadfast – strong and determined – and have unflinching faith. Stand fast like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego in the face of seemingly impossible obstacles and declare that I AM faithful regardless of circumstance.

I AM with you, I never leave you, I love you and desire good for you. Rest in Me – knowing that whether or not I choose the outcome you desire, I always choose you and My heart towards you is good. I see things you don’t see and cause all things to work together for good. Continue reading “Unflinching Faith”

Strengthened by Trials

James 1:3-4 (TPT) For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.

Beloved, the trials you have walked through have served their purpose. They have stretched your faith and enlarged your ability to believe in Me for both the miraculous and the mundane. You have tasted and seen, you know that I AM faithful. Your confidence in My character is steadfast for I AM unimpugnable.

You’ve learned by experience that worrying and wondering are wastes of time and energy, and in wisdom you simply look to Me and follow My lead. As a result, I AM pouring out increase over you, for you are faithful to Me, and I cherish that. I do not take lightly the cost that was required from you to get to this point. Though I know it was needful, it didn’t make it easy to watch as you struggled, but you were tried by fire and have been strengthened for it. You are My joy.

I AM Worth Your Extravagant Offering

Romans 12:1 (VOICE) Brothers and sisters, in light of all I have shared with you about God’s mercies, I urge you to offer your bodies as a living and holy sacrifice to God, a sacred offering that brings Him pleasure; this is your reasonable, essential worship.

Beloved, you are a living sacrifice – beautiful and pleasing to Me. Poured out before Me and the sweet aroma of your worship is like incense before My throne. You dance among the flames of My presence, arms lifted high in reverent praise. I cannot look away for you have captivated My gaze. Behold you are beautiful My love – altogether lovely!

Your sacrifice is extravagant – a surrendered heart – and so worthy for I accept nothing less. You give your best to Me just as I give and have given My best to you. Ensconced in our love. Passionate and true. Ever burning like a jealous flame, My heart is steadfast to you. So pour it out beloved, your heart – your worship- isn’t wasted. I AM worth your extravagant offering. I AM consuming you. Continue reading “I AM Worth Your Extravagant Offering”

Sober and Singleminded

Proverbs 4:25 (AMPC) Let your eyes look right on [with fixed purpose], and let your gaze be straight before you.

Beloved, resist the urge to be sidetracked or to lose focus. I have given you purpose and a call, and behold it is good and worthy – worthy of your time, attention, and focus. So keep your gaze fixed, not looking to the left or to the right, and not wasting time looking back – for I AM your rear guard and I go before you, there is nothing to fear.

The cares of this world may try to draw you in through worry and fear, and the temptations of this world will seek to lull you into complacency, but you know – you know, beloved – that time is short. So be sober and singleminded in purpose. Expand the Kingdom and make My name great.

Do Not Fear Temptation 

Matthew 4:1 (TLB) Then Jesus was led out into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit, to be tempted there by Satan.

Beloved, do not be afraid of temptation, for I will not give you more than you can handle. For I AM with you – beside you – here to strengthen you when you reach for me. I will always provide a means of escape. No trap set by the enemy to ensnare you is without a means of deliverance.

Change your point of view. Embrace each temptation as an opportunity to build strength, your inner fortitude. See each one as an opportunity to find your strength by relying more heavily on Me that in your weakness My power might be made perfect. My grace is sufficient, beloved. Rest and rely on Me.

I AM Who I AM and I AM Unchanging 

Revelation 19:11 (AMPC) After that I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse [appeared]! The One Who was riding it is called Faithful (Trustworthy, Loyal, Incorruptible, Steady) and True, and He passes judgment and wages war in righteousness (holiness, justice, and uprightness).

Beloved, I AM faithful. I AM true. I AM fiercely loyal and perfectly steadfast. I can be fully trusted and I AM incapable of being corrupted or influenced to change My character. I AM who I AM and I AM unchanging. You can depend on Me. If I say it. I will do it.

I am stirred with righteous anger towards the enemy and his plots and ploys against you. I will not be silent for I am YHVH Sabaoth (the Lord of Hosts) and I will fight for those I love and on their behalf for they rely on Me and I AM faithful and steadfast, and I AM victorious.
